Forty Thousand Dollars Offered For Famous Jumbo Miiu and Price Refused. ' The Lakeview Mining A Milling Co. baa been organized with a capital of 91,000,000, shares 50 cents each, fully paid up and non-assessable. Mr. Marks, a thorough ndning man of Grants Pass, is at the bead of the new company, which is to operate some very rich mines in the Windy Hollow District Mr. Marks understands mining thoroughly and haa considera ble capital back of him, and he tays there is a future for the Windy Hollow mines. This new company will -ncorporate about twenty or twenty-five claims, including Bob Smiths, Biebera' and others. Some of the claims lie along side of the famous Jumbo claim. Mr. Marks informes us that he tried to bny the Jumbo, but thinks by spending some money on some of the claims they hae they will have as good a mine as the Jumbo. . He told us that he offered 940,000 for the Jumbo, but the owners wanted 9600,000. Mr. Marks is confident that he will succeed in the venture, as he has the money to spend in finding the right place and the rock found on top of the ground is rich and extensive enough to warrant the expenditure of a large sm ia locating the ledge, .sad, dovefrpiijt ' .K' v He has gone to Pine Creek- to look at the mines there.. He came here to remain only a couple of weeks, but was so taken with the prospects that he soon decided to stay and lost no time in taking hold of some of the proposi- , tions open in the Windy Hollow dis trict It will only be a matter of a few months' time till Lake county will be the mining center of the West. Organize Dramatic CInd All tbo8j interested in the formation of a Literary and Dramatic club for the town of Lakeview will please at tend a meeting to be held for that pur pose on next Saturday evening at the Lakeview Business College. Professor Trodden has been asked by several of the most prominent people in town to organize such a club, and has consented to call the above meet ing for that purpose. As the name indicates, the object of the club will be to cultivate a literary taste among its members, as well as the giving, from time to time, of ama teur theatricals. Lakeview has long felt the need of such an organization, and it is earn est'y hoped that the movement will re ceive the support it deserves ; the pre-' sentation of some popular play has al ready been contemplated, but atten dance at the meeting Saturday evening affords the only criterion of what the club ma be able to produce.
