Lawler Interviewed.
Mr. William B. Lawler, managing
director of the Lawler gold mines, lim
ited, extensively engaged in mining op
erations at Quartzville, Linn county,
is a guest ot the Portland, accompanied
by Mrs. LawIeK" Mr. Lawler and his
wife will leave this morning over the
Northern Pacific for New York, and
theuce go to London, where he will re
main about six weeks on business con
nected with the further advancement
of mining operations iu the Santiam
and adjacent count ries.
Talking of the work so far progressed I
at Quartzville, and the' outlook, Mr.
Lawler speaks very enoouragingly.
The 20-stamp mill, set up under so
many difficulties, owiin, to the late
ness of the season, is crushing 60 tons
of ore each day auc meeting all expec
tations. The clean-up, after a run of
one week, proved entirely satisfactory,
and future results will doubtless prove
amply sufficient to justify the great ex
pense incurred In a practical develop
ment of the mineral wealth of the
country. , '
"Quartzville and the surrouuding
country Is rich in mineral,'1 said Mr.
Lawler, "but the character of the ore
Is such that it should prevent any
stampede to that section. It is not a
poor man's country, and the mines
must be operated on a large scale in
order to mpke them pay. The ore is
not free, and it will not only take cap
ital, but plenty of it, to bring about
good results."
Mr. Lawler has bonded a number of
properties in the Blue River country.
The mines owned by the Lane county,
Blue River, and I,u:ky Boy compa
nies, have each been bonded for $15,000,
the Turner claim for $6,000, and other
outside grounds at various sums. It is
the intention of Mr. Lawler to 00111
nience active work on these properties
early next June, and his London trip
will be made as eiieditlously as possi
ble on that account Oregnnlan.

Six Miles from the Moon.
A voyage to the moon is the lati si
project which Is seriously put forward
as the crowning point or the Paris Fx- -position
of 1900. Monsieur Mantois,
Its author, does not propose to carry
passengers lo the lunur regions in ail
aerial car, but he expects to bring
down the moon to the reach ot ueoplo
whose vision extends, say, six miles)
from the earth.
The plan is to construct a telesonpa
nearly 200 feet in length. The objec
tive glass will have adiamater of some
thing over 4 feet 3 inches, the largest
in the world. The colossal lube will
be placed horizontally, and the imago
of the moon will be reflected bv what
Is termed a mirror plane, six feet in di
ameter, and 15 Inches thick. Tho
weight will be 8,000 pound-.. The sdo-
iul feature of the idea is that the Image
of the moon shall be thrown upon a
screen placed in a hall large enough to
hold 600 spectators.
Astronomers calculate that with au
apparatus of these dimensioned will b j
possible to discern easily objects of tho
size of the Notre Dame Cathedral tow
ers, and to distinguish tho evolutions
of a lunar regiment. Should the open
ing of the twentieth century be signal
ized by volcanic eruptions in the
mountains of the moon, visitors to the
