lowa Valley, Only a real genuine, 3-rlns
circus and menagerie Is now lacking
to put this region on the amusement
map In due and formal style. After
many yeara of iJO'ation, Wallowa
county has been discovered by the
amusement wo: Id, thanks to the rail
road. Everybody has' se3n Uncle Tom s
Cabin but everybody will go to see
It again. For 50 years it has been
the most popular play on the stage
and Its drawing attraction seems to
Increase as the years go by.
For a long time it held the boards
from one week to several months
yearly In the leading theatres of the
largest cities. For many more years
it was the money maker for all rep
ertoire shows. Then came the era
of tented exhibitions, such as Stet
son's and the grand old play took on
a new lease of life. The best of
the tented shows give not only a
I good presentation of the play, but
'with the horses, ponies, donkeys,
bloodhounds, chariots and tableaux
floats are a pretty fair-sized menage
rie as well, Increasing the Interest

Something New For Thia
Tonight, the Ethel Tucker Stock
company will Imitate the Orpheum
circuit and give a varied performance
that will inclwle:
Several musical features, managed,
by Messrs Brown and Gardiner and
Miss Ruth Brown.
'Athey and A they in an excruciat
ingly funny burlesque on Romeo and
Athey and Dupuy In a sketch,
Marjorle Mandeville in her great
acrobatic dancing specialty. In this
act Miss Mandeville wears a gorgeous
flame-colored, imported French cos
tume.so heavily spangled that It
weighs 100 pounds. Weighs more
than Miss Mandeviile herself? Well
yes, and then some.
The closing act of the performance
will be. Miss Ethel Tucker and com
pany In "The Tigers Claw." This
little play condenses into one act,
all the emotions and passions of a
five act play. It U adopted from the
famous opera, "La Tasca."
As, the t4me la 16th century, all
the men in the play wear glittering
court costumes with Jewels, and,
orders. There are only fqut people
In this, play Misa Tucker, Mr. .Koch,
.Uorney Athey and Mr, Moody, but
every one of that four act, frqm the
moment he or she makes his, qr her
first entrance, It is U vivid, startl

John H. Wilson of Middle Valley
was In town Thursday with splendid
specimens of rock from the new
tunnel on his claims In Wilson
Basin. The rock shows extraordinary
richness In free gold, and If appear
ance are not deceptive will assay
many times richer than the upper
These two claims, quite well
known for several years as Big
E'lck a.id Lib le Joe, have been de
veloped steadily sl.ice filing, and now
promise a rich reward for the faith
of the owners. Wilson basin lies
between the South Fork and the
Mlnam, Just above the headwaters
of Bear creek. A 2 per cent road
less than two miles long would con
nect the head of Bear creek canyon
with the mines.
So far, two 60-foot tunnels have
been driven and a 20-foot shaft. From
the old or upper tunnel the rock
assayed V to 9 In gold, 6 to 8 or
9 per cent copper and a trace of
silver. The new tunnel taDs the
ledge 125 foot below the old one, and
the rock Is incomparably richer. An
assay of it will soon be had.
A creek runs across the property
and on one side Is a lake of 40 acres
In extent. Water rights have been
Tiled on the lake where a small
tunnel would give a great fall, furnish
ing abundance of water power.
Associated with Mr Wilson In
ownership of the claim are Dr. E. T.
Anderson and A. C. Weaver of Enter
prise, Willis Jackson of Grelton,
Ohio, F. G. Con'ey of Stayton and
Mac Vetten of Middle Valley, They
,say nq company will be formed, nor
stock be for sale. " but that develop
ment work will be carried along as
a partnership affair.
The claims are Just acroaa the
ridge from the big copper mines of
the Contact company.
