am not very much mistaken they will
ho the most prosperous Sumpter hna

"1 base my conclusions ou these
fnclH: The 10. and K. will he i'i lull
lil tint again this summer, employing
perhaps a hundred men; the K. mid
K. sawmilling and logging operations
jiiHt nutsldo of town will take close
ou to Hlxty or seventy: the smolter
will doubtless start, up with a full
crew; the Cracker Orcgoun Ih to re
sumo In the near future, and the same
may ho said of the California; nor
should tho llourne railroad ho over
looked, and there are scores of
smaller mining properties preparing
to operate, hesldos the old stand hys
employing their usual complement of
men. In the nature ot conditions,
these things are hound to hriug pros
perous times. Wo will have the
name pay roll ve bad last summer,
besides tho additions I have men
tinned." WILL INSTALL SAW
