In their affidavit for the writ

claim and when they asked for a
change of venue he refused them
their rights and rendered judg

A BIG DISCOVERY.
(By John B. Slater.)
Roy A. Young, of Astoria, Ore.,
Chris (1 Johnson of Deep Creek,
and J. B. Voder of Aberdeen,
Wash., who own the Electric Point
group of five claims which they
located on the top of Grass moun
tain about 20 miles east of North
port last July, have refused to
consider a proposal to purchase
their holdings for $1,000,000. The
discovery of the Electric Point
mine has been $ie talk of the
country side for several weeks,
but in point of public interest the
report of a grass-root showing of
such prodigious proportions was
not favorably received, and it was
for the purpose of getting the
facts for the press that I made
the trip last Sunday to the sum
mit of the peak, 5,000 feet above
sea level, and made a personal ex
amination of what, in my opinion,
is one of the most important min
eral deposits discovered in the Pa
cific northwest in the last 30 years.
The discovery is on the east
slope of the mountain within 300
feet, vertically, of the peak, and
the vein cuts the formation of lime
and magnetia from north to south
following the magnetic variation
of the compass. The split is vol
canic, upwards of 125 feet in
width and is filled with limonite
and heavy boulders of lead in
about equal proportion, which
have been forced into place by the
upheaval which rended the rock.
The surface of the country is cov
ered with two or more feet in
depth of volcanic ash rendering
it a blind deposit. The ledge mat
ter has been traced across tile
ridge down a 25 per cent Sscltua
on either side over a traveled^'is
tance of more than two thousand
feet. Where the surface has been
stripped on the face of the Open
ing of the country rock the min
eral occurs with little variati ;i
of quantity or quality of deposit,
and the ultimate volume appeals
to the casual observer as immense.
At the discovery oil the north end
of the ledge an open rut has been
made transversely from east to
west, and on a distance of nearly
fifty feet, opens more than 30 feet
of the width of the deposit on a
vertical face of approximately 16
feet, all in ore. More than 100
tons of boulders from this open
ing are piled ready for shipping
and will average over 70 per cent
lead. The admixture of iron con
glomerate will run 35 per ceiit
lead, and the entire vein matter
is commercial ore with no waste
From these observations the im
mensity of the value of the de
posit can be readily understood by
mining men. The only values are
The opening between the walls
seems to be almost perpendicular
as of a chimney and the fused con
dition of the immediate country
rock would indicate immense newt
preceding the final upheaval
which filled the cavity with an
aqueous mass. The country roi-.k
to the east seems to be of granite
and westward, of lime.
The elevation above Deep Crock
is about 2,400 feet and the Elee
trie Point is reached by a climb
of about four miles over a newly
opened trail through dense woods
which clothe the mountain aim jst
to the summit. It is proposed to
build a wagon road up Silver
creek to a point immediately un
der the mine and drop the ore
down by cable tramway to a sfa
tion 1,000 feet below for loading
trucks. Prom this point a well
constructed wagon road reaches
Northport over a distance of less
than 20 miles. At present all sup
plies for the mine are carried up
the mountain on pack anima's uaii
water is brought up in the same
way from a spring one and ,i half
miles down the trail. The inter
est taken in the new discovery is
plainly indicated by the depth of
six inches or more of dust op the
trail which has been tramped by
more than a thousand excited gold
hunters lured by mere curiosity
to view the new eldorado.
