Reception to Senator Warren.
Many residents of the valley
will be disappointed in not having
the pleasure of meeting Senator
F. E. Warren during his present
visii here. Mr. and Mrs. W. B. ,
Hugus will hold a public reception ;
to-night at their residence from 8
to 12 p. m., in honor of the distin
guished visitor. As the Senator

him in Saratoga and social atten

that event. The public generally
are invited to attend the reception
this evening.
Bonding Placers.
A sixty-clays' option for a half
interest in the Jack Creek placers
has been given by the Nebraska
syndicate that has been operating
there for several months. The
price is reported at S2O,(XX). Work
on the placers will ilext week be
suspended for the season. A drain
ditch, fifty rods long, has been
made and a supply ditch of nearly
equal length, built. Sluicing was
attempted, but owing to quick
sand the result was not satisfactory.
It has been found that the drain
will have to be made deeper before
successful gold washing can be
prosecuted. Even should the pro
posed sale fall through the Ne
braskians intend to begin opera
tions early next season.
“Chat’s" Mine Looming Up.
Through a misunderstanding,
the car load of ore from the Chat
terton mine, on the Grand En
campment, remained for more
than two weeks at Wolcott, before
being sent forward to Denver for
treatment at the Globe smelter.
It was started this w’eek. Since
this ore was hauled from the mine,
the drift out of which it was taken
has been run for a distance of
forty feet from the bottom of the
shaft. The drift was in twenty
five feet when the ore was sorted
and the width of the vein carrying
this smelting ore was only twenty
two inches. In going fifteen feet,
this vein has widened out to seven
feet. If good returns are made on
the shipment already made, active
work will be continued.

C. C. Davis and D. C. Kinnaman made
a trip to Gold Hill and were delighted
with what they saw in the camp. Mr.
Davis, who has had a good opportunity
to judge of the value of agricultural
lands during a long residence in New
York, declares that he never saw better
chances for farming in the West
than in the Brush creek country. The
land that impressed him so favorably
will lie under the proposed Bothwell
Elmer E. Loach, formerly of Pass
creek, who left this section early in the

braska delegates to the irrigation con
gress, in Salt Lake, last week. He is
talking of visiting the Platte valley
sometime this fall.
United States Senator Francis E. War
ren arrived in Saratoga yesterday. Al
though this is his first visit to the Up
per Platte valley, he was welcomed as
an old friend. Throughout his public
career in Wyoming, the Senator has al
ways been the champion of Carbon
county and in many’ ways served the in
terests of the people of the valley. His
interest in the Saratoga experiment sta
tion has been a timely service. Urgent
business of a public and private nature
precludes Mr. Warren from an extended
visit here at this time. He heard so
much of Gold Hill that he was eager to
see the camp. In order to make the trip
there in one day and return to Saratoga,
four relays of horses were provided at L.
G. Davis’ ranch, “Tom” Ryan's and
Headquarters. Despite the bad weather,
Senator Warren started this morning,
accompanied by W. B. Hugus. L. G.
Davis and “Tom’’ Ryan.

The crop of small grain and hay
on Snake river was exceptionally
go<xl this year, where there was a
larger acreage than ever before.
William Hunt had twenty-five
acres of oats and barley that aver
aged fifty bushels to the acre.
Heretofore all the oats raised on
Snake river were rapidly disposed
of at home, comments the Bepub
licau, but this year the supply is

price for which they sell in Raw

freighting them to town.
