What Mr. Hall's Mining Attorney Says
Regarding Recent Rumors.
AA'eiser, Nov. 14, 1901.
My Dear Mr. Lockwood:—
Answering your note of last eve
ning 1 will say that the statements
published respectively on page 8 of
last Tuesday's Statesman and page
1 of the Salt Lake Herald of the
same day, relating to Mr. Hall's
mining interest in the Seven Devils
District are eroneous. The assertion
that Mr. Hall has been victimized
by his agents is without any truth
whatever. The story is untrue and
absurd. You may deny it absolutely
As to the abandonment of the
option on the nine sixteenths inter
est of the American Mining Co. Ld.,
in the Peacock claims, the facts are
these: That company asks a price
for its interest which Mr. Hall's
pany will nut pay.
partition suit is pending brought by
an owner of one o f the other inter
ests, which will soon result in the
sale of the claims. Uuder these
circumstances the option in question
became of no value,
reason the option was given up.
That is all there is to the matter.
This affects only the option on the
interest of the American Mining Co.
Ld., in those claims. Mr. Hall
still holds his contracts from the
owners of the other interests in
those claims and still has his other

The Artesian Springs AVaters and
Land Co. has been incorporated
under the laws of Oregon, with J.
S. Stark as president and S. F. Stark
secretary. It is capitalized at $100,
000, and headquarters are at the
office of R. C. McKinney, in this
city. The object of the company is
to irrigate about 20,000 acres of
land, about 4,000 of which lie along
the Malheur river and the remain
ing 10,000 on Dead Ox flat, opposite
the city of Weiser.
The ditch, the permanent survey
of which will be begun by Engineer
Utter tomorrow, will be 22 miles
long. The first two miles is the
expensive part of the ditch, and after
that is passed it runs through
twenty miles of fine farm land
susceptible of irrigation. The com
pany has a number of large reservoirs
fed by Willow creek that will be
drawn upon when the Malheur be
comes lotv in the summer. In and
around these reservoirs are innumer
able flowing springs which will
ment the water supply. AVork lias
been under way on the reservoirs for
two years, and last year they were
used to some extent. The company
expects to complete the heavy work—
the first two miles—by next fall.
Shares are on the market for $10
each, and call for an inch of water.
Settlers can pay for water shares by
work on the ditch, which is now
under way. The terminus of the
canal will be at the mouth of Moore's

Prominent Young: People United in
Yesterday two of Washington
county's most popular young people
were made happy, when Roy Car
rutliers and Miss Ollie Jeanette A r an
Sicklin were united in marriage.
The ceremony occurred at high noon
at the residence of the bride's parents
in this city, and was a quiet one,
there being present only the imme
diate family, AA'ill Carruthers, brother
of the groom, Miss Redway of Boise
and Airs. Hovie of AA'eiser. Rev.
Henry G. Taylor, of St. Luke's
church, officiated; Miss Redway was
bridesmaid and JAA'ill Carruthers
groomsman. The bride wore a hand
some dress of crepe de chine with
white sash and carried carnations.
After the ceremony those present
partook of a sumptuous wedding
breakfast. The couple were the re
cipients of many handsome presents
from a host of friends and the bride's
father gave them a check for $1,000.
The happy pair took the east bound
train at 5 o'clock for Chicago, where
they will visit friends and relatives
for the next thirty days.
The bride is the charming and
petite daughter of E. A. VanSickhn,
one of AA T ashington county's most
successful business men. She has
grown up in this county and is one
of our most popular young Iadie9.
She graduated last June from St.
Margaret's, Boise.
The groom, Mr. Roy Carruthers,
is the broad-guage member of the
firm of Carruthers & O'Toole, and
has had charge of the Council
branch. He is a young man of brains,
business ability and attractive per
sonality—a prince of a fellow—and
to his energy is due the larger part
of the firm's success, \\ T herever his
methods and ideas have been per
mitted to govern the business results
have been flattering and we congrat
ulate the county that he intends to
enter permanently and on a large
scope into local business circles on
bis return from his wedding tour.
