Rankin returned Friday eve ning from the mining region of Huake river where in company wUh Aaron Wilson, he has just finished a contract for driving 60 feet of tunnel for J. E. Kennedy of Hosalta, Wash., and E. A. Zindel of Evtreit. Wash., on their Deep creek mining property. Mr. Kaiikiu Bays lie tusl lappea men Grow ler lead with 100 feet of tunue and they have a very good copper and void showing. In acouvt rsatlon with Mr. Rankin he gave the follow lug information ( that in ninir reirloii: "I fully believe that the Hnake river mining belts have a future that will be a surprise to the people in the min ing world. .No one can discribe those immense mineral zones no that one can comprehend the vast oceana of wealth that Is stored up In those bills. "1 have teen interested In the Huake river mines for the last eight years and the more I see of these leads and the more I work In them the more I am satisfied we will have paying mines as soon as we get transportation. . I liave been at work for some time on my last contract, and during this time throe mines, the Electrolytic com pany, the Copper Mountain Co., and K. A Kinder and J. E. Kennedy have sent a mining expert of world-wide fame to report ou these three mines. Mr. Cammel, as superintendent of the Electrolytic Co., i elped him in his re pat for that company. What his official report is I do liot know, hat he did suv it would be a mine ami in at they had shipping ore from the surface in one c'aiin. As to toe otner iwo properties it was my pleasure as con tractor ou the Kennedy property tot esccrt Proh ssor Augbey on tli s proper ty. What his report will be I do not know, but judging ny appearance u will be good. As mine superintendent for the Copper Mountain Co. I do know what he thinks oi that ro, eity. Professor Samuel Augbey of Spokane, mining engineer and expert, is a man about HO years of a He was for 13 years professor of Latin and Creek in the University of Nebraska and for several years professor of geology in their schools. You will find bid to he the V. 8. government repoits on geol ogy for years. He was sent on an ex pedition down the Snake river In 1854 by T. S. llayden, and has also made collections of geological specimens for Geologist Dun a. In our work for Copper Mountain we found their main tunnel to be 300 feet iu length with over half of tbU length in concentrating ore; also one drift from tlvis of 90 feet with good ore for i 'if distance; a drift to the south of main tunnel 270 feet back from portal, this tiu foot drift is in ore all the way and is at a depth of over 400 feet. We also have an incline shaft at the portal of Main tunnel. This has a depth of 100 feet and is in concentrating ore. "We found this mammoth lend to be at lea-t 000 feet wide and com eniratlng ore more than hall way across. The professor named this to be a mine with shipping ore fnni the surface. This company has 14 claims In solid square group with over 650 feet of tunnel drifts and shafts driven. The expert savs all we lack is trans portation and we will surely have that us the O. R. & N. has COO teams at work and are putting on all the men and teams they can get. Idaho county, Idaho, is putting a wagon road from Whitebird to the state line at Copper Mountain Bar. Tills will give us a chance to get light machinery and other supplies, and as Superintendent of Copper Mountain, I will sny we ex pect to crowd the woric idis coming year to full capacity, and in years to ccmie with such miues as the Iron Dyke, Peuoock, Great Kastern, Blue Jacket, Electrolytic, Copper Mountain, and other promising prospects will place the Hnake river In the foremost ranks of shipping mines in the Northwest." The following delayed news notes from the Suake river by Mr, Rankin are still of Interest: Tucker and Russell began March 27 to lamb 5,000 ewes on their Snake river range. It is quite stormy for lambing but they are meeting . with fair success. Sparks aud Davidson are engaged runuing a croxscut tunnel on Sparks' claim called the Chalice. This is a promising lead and Mi. Sparks claims It assays $40 to the ton, mostly gold. The Horner boys are movlug their cattle to the higher range. Quid Pro Quo. Ami now If we can make up our minds that no outlying community would be treated unfairly by changing tiie county seat location, and that It would not bring about a division of the county, and that in such a way that would not benefit a lot of us, with all its hardships, we will know just how to vote Flora Journal. There is one part of the foregoing that can easily be Investigated and the answer found that will straighten the matter out so every person In the county as well as the north end can make'up his mind. That Is the matter of the division of the county. Under the law all that reeds to tie dope is to present to the secretary of state a peti tion signed by a comparatively few vot ers and the whole quest ion la taken out of the power of the people of Wallow a county to help or hinder. The people of the whole state will decide then whether we shall pay double county taxes. W nuld Joseph start such a petition? Would . Wallowa help It along? Wallowa will prntMt madly just now, before election, that she would not? Joseph wilt assure ua that the never dreamed f such a thing. May Iss not. But what were the terms on which certain persona scoured Joseph aud Pralrl Crwk for signers to Wal lowa's sMithii? Worked agalnit their own luterest for fun? Were they to have petitions signed iu return some day? Debs For President. Eugene V. Peba tiae been nominated for president by the Social'st national convention at 'Chicago.

May 8 The porth country had a fine rain vesterday, followed by a cold wave leaving the mountains cov ered with snow. It is hoped that the cold wave will pass over without prov iug Injurious to the iruit crop; an eariy varieties f fruit have shed their bloom, while the appleB are lust in full bhssn with a flattering rospect (or a flue crop. Farmers are about done sowing small grain and corn planting was in full blast at the time w hen the rain set In. The corn raiser should not suffer any uneasiness if the planting is delayed for a week or more as early corn plant ing Is not the best in this county. A it often happens that early planted corn while the ground is cold is (low to come up and liable to be damaged by the wire worms and other disturbance which seldom occur with late planting. W.
