THE SUMPTER MINER VOL. n. SUMPTER, OREGON, FEBRUARY 27, 1901 NO. 25 POPULATION OF SUMPTER 2,988. THESE ARE THE CENSUS FIGURES, SO IT IS SURELY MORE. Greatest Per Centage Increase of any Town on Earth Population of the County Two and a Half Times Greater Than Ten Years Ago How it Has Happened That This Town Has Been Overlooked In Census Bureau Bulletins. The bulletin Issued by the census bureau giving the population of Oregon towns of two thousand or more Inhabitants did not contain the name of Sumpter, and all In terested In the subject, believing that the enumerator had shirked his duty, were duly Indignant. Then came the bulletin announcing the population of towns having less than two thousand inhabitants, and Sumpter was also omitted from that list. Then the residents of this camp began to wonder whether or not we have any official exis tence. The La Grande Observer prints the first explanation of this omission which Till: MINER has seen. It says: "Cen sus Bulletin No. 4), which ...

Wednesday, February 27, i7oi THE SUMPTER MINER FINANCIAL FASHIONS. At Present Money Is Seeking Investment in Mines. Capital Is a queer commodity as queer as human nature. It has its fads and fancies yea, and follies as varied and changeable as women's fashions, and sometimes seemingly as devoid of cause and reason. At one time all Idle money Is looking for investment in farm lands; the next season town lots are the proper things to buy; then comes Industrial stocks, fol lowed by railroad securities, and so on down the list of things thought to be money breeders. Under certain circum stances, it is true that capital is timid; it is slow, very slow in vinturing into any new channel of investment; hut once started in any particular direction, it loses all its timidity and dashes In with a bold ness that Is nothing short of recklessness. For several years past mining has been played for a pronounced favorite, and will doubtless hold the lead for years to come. This is one of the few fin...

Wednesday, February 27, 1401 THE SUMPTER MINER CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS Stringent Health Ordinance Becomes a Law. Chairman Stoddard, of the judiciary committee, submitted at the meeting of the city council Saturday evening an un signed report on the matter of fines to be imposed on violators of city ordinances. This, of course, refers to prostitution and other effinses of supposed like character. His plan Is to have the marshal notify the offenders to appear before the recorder, who will require them to put up a cash ball, the amount of the fine to be im posed, which it is hoped they will forfeit. If they refuse to fall In with this program, then they are to be arrested on complaint and go through the form of a trial, fined and assessed the costs. The report not being regular In form, the matter was re ferred to the same committee. The committee on fire and water, to which was referred the proposition from the Water company to put in ten more hydrants, was given further time in whic...

Those who wish to buy mining stocks will invest in this on the merits of the proposition, after careful investigation. The great advantage offered to buyers by the Gipsy King is that only treasury stock is on the market, all other being pooled and placed in escrow; thus giving the company absolute command of the price of its stock. When the few thousand remaining shares of this first offering are disposed of, the price will be advanced. Men are now at work on the property and active development on an extensive scale will be inaugurated at an early day. Orders for stock should be accompanied by the cash and sent to J. H.

Wednesday, March 6, ioi THE SUMPTER MINER PNEUMATIC PULVERIZER Machine to Take the Place of Stamp Mill. Last week THIi MINER published a short description of a device known as the pneumatic pulverizer, deigned to do the work of a stamp mill. Its tir.t public test was given at Seattle last week. The Mining Record of that city devotes much space to the subject, it asys that more that 200 mining men from all over (lie Northwest were present at the time, and manifested much satisfaction over the re sults attained. The great distinguishing feature of the pneumatic pulverizer is that substances are powdered by being shot against rich other at a terrific velocity by means of op posing jets of steam or compressed air. At a pressure of too pounds to the square inch superheated steam or compressed air is allowed to escape through two three-eighth-inch nozzles, directly opposed to each other and separated by an lutervei, ing space of some eight inches. The jets of air or steam then pass respec...
