Tbe Hold Hun mine is easily traoed on tbe sur face for a distance of at least a mile. and Is the mother lode of that miner al belt. It is a true fissure vein of enormous size, having a oontaot be tween granite and porphyry. The ledge bas a pitch of from ten to II f toen degrees and tbe trend Is from northwest to southeast. The ledue matter is a combination of metals. namnly : Copper, lead, gold and sil ver, ine sbatt wbere the wotk la be ing done Is hitihly mineralized and the ore Is pitobiug toward the hanging wall. 1 am sure a large body ot ore will be encountered on the 100 font level with greatly increased values. The company bas 300 acres of ground. Several veins bave been un covered, .all of wbloh show good values; timber and water power iu abundance. In fact, 1 find the tim ber and water of great valuo to the oompany. ! Tbe present power with a little improvement of which 1 have made known, will liirnlsh ample power for a ten stamp mill and a rock oiusber. besides doing tbo present work which it ia doing of hoisting the ore and running the pumps. And in conclusion 1 will say that your mineral and faciities for hand ling the same eclipse anything 1 have ever seen in my 25 years of actual ex perience in mining. Respectfully yours, James H.

Dear Sir : In regard to tbe Cold Run Mining company's property, I bave tried to make a conservative and correct report according to tbe bent data attainable at the time of making tbe examination. There are some in stances wbere facts oould not be ob tained until a larger amount of devel opment work bas been done, us for Instance the size and character of the ore body in the (J old Hun vein, lint in all cases 1 bave tried to give us near correct data as possible. Under proper management and the adoption of improved methods of treatment tbe ores from your group oan b" mined, illed aud run into builJion at a cost not to exceed t per to . You are fortunate in having such a splendid water power. No limit to tbe horse power. Timber iu great abundance tor mining purposes which will last for ages. 1 would advise you as a frieud, to concentrate all your efforts ou the Gold Hun vein and sink a distance if 100 teet as soon as possible and start tbe mill on that property first From DATE 0 3 Ch30 3C the rcHiilts obtained from tbe surface (1 bad a check asttuy made on tbe ore 1 took from the in I no and it gave 815.211 gold, Ui", copper and 822. 60 lead ) 1 consider the chances favorable when properly developed for its making a property that will rank with the llomeHtuke, Miimiir or any o..lir of the ore bodies of the United Status. Another thing, lot me Impress on you the Importance of securing the services of a competent aud careful mill man aud aniiilnt.inittoi' in the out set, that no failure may ntMilt wheu you make o start. Tbia must be done if you expect to make n suouhh. This is as much a trade or piofettsion as any nthor iind uono but tried and x perlenoed mini iu that profession i should be employed. i tniHt r.nat you will panlou me for alluding to these matters. My anxiety to see you mukn a success, knowing that you have the ore, Is uiy excuse for deviating from my usual custom iu such matters. Yours truly, James K. Smith.

Just previous to his coming here Mr. Smith was living at Olympia on the Sound, where he bad a Hue residence. The climate there was unlavorablu to his health, and ho was advised by physioians to leave. In looking uround for a more healthy climate be decided to oome to Hood Hiver, wbere he has since remained and where it bus evidently argeed with him, for we know of no more vigorous citi.ou iu tbe com munity, both mentaliy aud physi cally, than Mr. Smith. As a government surveyor, Mr. Smith bad associated witb him at that time (ieo. P. Crowell, and is probably as familiar witb the topography of western Oregon and the state in gen eral as any man iu it and as well known, lie has aeon many changes in bis long residence here and lias probably beeu more instrumental iu making the fume of Hood Hiver known to the outsido world than any of its citizens. He has brought bouor to himself and bis borne town and the best wishes of his friends go with him that he may live to see another thirtieth anniversary in the etute of Oregon. .Meeting of Ministers' Association.
