MR. HOGAN HOME
Will Make Several Changes in t>hc
Mill at. Orogrande
General Manager Wm. Hogan, of the
Crooked River Minn. g & Milling Co.,
who has been outside for the past two
months, has returned to Orograndc.
Mr. Hogan will make several important
changes in the mill this winter. New
copier plàtÊé will be installed, the ore
b; ns ^vift be remodelled somewhat and
sevo ^a5 nedc^tory changes will be made
to the handling of orts

some of the gold in thài suction,
amon g theWi the faiftous Homestake!
which haâ almost one thousand stamps
dropping. The capacity of this mill is
about 4000 tons per day. While the
margin of profit is small the immensity
of the plant makes it a good dividend
paye?-.
Mr, Hogan, while enthusiastic over
what he has seen in tire Black Hills,
believes that the immense bodies of
free milling ore in this vicinity will,
with development, equal or surpass
anything in the Black Hills. —OrosgVandc

WORK ON ABERFOILE
Company is Pushing Development and
Will OMrtirtue All Winters.
The wovfc bf developing the Àberfoile
mine is beîiig pùshed steadily forward
and will continue during the winter.
This property consists of ten claims
located on whiskey creek, about five
miles northwest of Elk City. There
are known to be six quartz Veins- tra
versing this fine group and a porphyry
dike over 100 feet wide.
The quartz
veins range from two to twenty feet in
width and ail of them, as well as the
porphyry, return assays that warrant
future dividends. About 700 feet of
practical werk hos been placed on the
property and arrangements to build a
mill next summer are completed. The
management of this mine is modest in
expressing the situation, the board of
i control Is imbued to tet the work speak
■ for itself and when the mill start* it is
not likely to stop. 'There is a Vast de
potet of ore that will give returns for

Our Protest made Effective
Very Encouraging Reports Received From Washington, D. C.,
Regarding Remonstrance Sent to Senators Dubois and
Hey burn. —Prompt Action Taken
The citizens of Elk City and district
will teng remember November 29, 1903. its
On that memorable day our local
Déclaration of Independence was prac
icaliy made, In our old town hall, under it
the Stars and Stripes bespangling its
ceiling and walls of roughly hewed logs
that grew on these noble hills, here in
'God's own country, ' '
Indeed, never Were the people of this
whole sectioÄ more firmly determined
than since that meeting to enforce their
rights, as free-born American citizens,
not of any one special class, but of ail
classes alike, and burst the miserable
bonds of red-tape, that have to ute-iec
esarily and ridiculously, but most an
noyingly hampered and irritated them
since the last few years.
In fine, the nnited community of
Elk City and district now begs the sec
retary of the interior to fully under
stand that this free, enlightened and
patriotic section of the 'Mnland empire''
is no place whatever for red-tape ' 'rules
and regulations" so-called, which are
the quint-essence of stupidity from a
practical standpoint, and which can
alone breed contempt for the real laws
of the land, cause untold annoyance and
injury to the best class of citizens and
ultimately petty official corruption and
brutality to the detriment of the whole
community at large.
In other words, we are wow living un
der a state of things that our people
cannot and will not longer tolerate.
On the one hand, it is absolutely con
trary to the spirit and letter of our na
tional laws and constitution. While,
on the other hand, the remedy is very
simple, indeed, provided cur direct and
popular representatives are listened to
at Washington, thus causing bureau
j '- rn ^* c littleness t_ give dciTinitely away
! to American manliness.

the Lewiston Tribune published in
morning columns the energetic let
sent it by Dr. Strong respecting
our meeting of protest on the very day
was held. And we take pleasure irj
thanking the Spokesman-Review, of
Spokane, Wash., for the following that
tiers,
appeared in its recent issue of Deo.
18, in favor of our just cause :
ELK CITY SENDS A PROTEST
Odious Rules and Regulations by For
est Reserve Agents.
Dubois Takes The Matter Up
Early Closing of a Portion of the Bitter
Root Forest Reserve is Probable.
Washington, D. C., Dec. 17—Senator
Dubois has deceived the remonstrance
of a mass meeting of the citizens of
Elk City, Idaho, against the rules inv
posed by agents at the Bitter Rcot
Forest Reserve. Chargea of burden
some rules and regulations to which the
citizens and miners are subjected wt re
sent, including copies of permits, appli
cations, etc., that Vvepe of such a na
ture as said to annoy and harass ser
\
The senator took up the matter per
sonally with Gifford Pinchot, chief of
the forestry bureau, who assured him
the early closing of a portion of this
reservation was contemplated by the
department, and the senator was asked
to request his people in Elk City to send
affidavits, maps, etc., to sustain their
contention that a portion of the reserve
should be eliminated.
The îffiNiNG News will keep its lead
ers fully posted of the progress and
phases of our legitimate fight agains"
unwarranted rules and rtgt latlon» -
the reserve that can only lead to official
injustice, petty tyranny and blackmail
in our midst. And we will ever be the
faithful and vigilant servants of the
whole community in this, as in ail other
matters pretaining to its prosperity.
In fact it was with this special erd
ip view that the founding ol the MIN
ING News was hastened at the present
time.
