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.

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.
