Several yeai ago a family by the
name of Logan were residents u'f this
city; but moving awny they have
almst la-en forgotten by mo-t of our
residents. Frank Logan, a memU rof
the futility, finally brought up ut
Empire City, Coos county, where he
met bis death by a gun-shot wound.
It was thouttht at that time and until
within tho past few days that the
homicide was a case of suicide.
Wednesday Dr. King of this city

a resident of Empire, slating that a

The emtlneer corps of the Orcgonlan
railroad has been running several pre
liminary lim-s In and lut our city
the jvst week, one of which wits over
the old aliaudoued Hue or switch which
runs to tho warehouse; within half a
mile of town. Yesterday they surveyed
a line from tin warehouse, thr-o-h
Main st reet, to Selo Boiler Milts. That
we will have a road there Is but llttl
dotitit. Even the spur switch would

in the city Freight could b
shipped at any time In the winter
without being subjected to the dame.go
of the winter rains. But the epur
switch would soon be extended up tbe
valley to the mines, and to the -tal
fields and paint mines, both of which
are now being developed. Then ih
line could lie ojs-rated ns an ind)--d-cut
system for Ihc main line, as the

TheCnlipooUnn.l Blue Biv.r Mill
and Mlnh'x Company have had men
at wni k on one of their uut promis
ing l-ads for two months. The latest
rejiort is that the miners have reached
by tunnel a depth of ft., t, ftfid that
the niort-ir nod pan reveal gold ut
every trlel. When a ! p'h of -Vi ,,r
PHI feet hss lce!i attained the te id will
be ross-ctit am! tested, and if th pnw
poct warrant (.ml t virylssly thinks
they will) the company will put In a
mill. Stock Is living taken riht ulo:ig
in this company.
The Trinity Mining ami Milling Co.,
which was recently incorporated in
Brownsville with a vandal Mock of
fTo.tKH), have sent one or thecompany
to the mines with a vjew to ascertain
ing the amount of quartz in sight, ami
if Ids report Ih' favorable tbe company
will put in a mill in a few weeks. One
of the company has just returned from
the CalaiHMilu district, brintrloir with
j him quartz from the Trinity company's
mines mat kiiows notn goiinni native
silver, tiuartu from those mines re
sembles more closely the Coinstock ore
than anything yet discovered.
A numlierof men have been at work
on the Ctdupoola trail for two week",
and it Is the intention of parties inter
ested to push thu work to completion.
When this road Is completed it will
shorten the route to the mines, anil
obviate the necessity of a lomr, monot
onous Journey up "the MeKcnzie. A
gisxl road up the Calrpooia will give
an iutKrtu to the mining industry lu
this locality which nothing else will.
Money has already been furnished by
men in tho metropolis who hold inter
ests in these mines, and Mr. Lam;
worthy's recent visit to Portland will
have the oiled to still further swell the
subscription to this luudubiu enterprise.
