THE SUMPTER MINER. AT WORK ON SAW MILL Jewelry and WE BUY ALL OUR GOODS IN CARLOAD LOTS WHOLESALE AND Watchi RETAIL Shaw Lumber Company Buys Part of Tietjen Tract. Wednesday, January 3, 1900. k E. C. Bloomer, the representative here of the A. C. Shaw Lumber company, of Tacoma, closed the deal a day or two since for twenty-four acres of the Tietjen tract, three-quarters of a mile out on the Bonanza road, to be used as a saw mill site. The machinery for this mill arrived early in December, since when Mr. Bloomer has been looking for a suitable place to erect the mill. He is an experienced saw mill man, knows the requirements and understands the importance of an ad vantageous location and convenient sur roundings. He has, therefore, bided his time until he could get what he wanted, which he says lie has now secured. MINER readers will remember that he found soon after his arrival here two tracts of timber land near town that suited him lit every particular, except that there Is every I...

It Is decidedly the handsomest business blocl In camp, and would be a credit to any town. Though It has a frontage of only twenty-live feet, It Is In every re spect a metropolitan appearing structure. It covers the entire length of the lot, 100 led; has a sixteen-foot ceiling in the first story and twelve feet In the second. There is nothing showyabout the front, hut there is an unmistakable air of sub stantial solidity about it, that Is materially enhanced by the large plate glass window lights, Each of the front windows have sashes 126 by 156 Inches insle, the lower light being H4 by e indies, with two above, each being 42 by 60.

THE SUMPTER MINER. Wednesday, January io, 1900 SUMPTER WELL AND WIDELY KNOWN. District Favorably Compared With California Mines. EDITOR MINER: After seven months pleasantly spent In the Hlue mountains of eastern Oregon, I find myself again on my old stamping ground. With some knowledge of your mining field and a tolerable familiarity for thirty years with mining belts of California and a pretty thorough inquiry as to the progress made here during my absence, I can only say that the favorable impression I got while in the Webfoot state east of the Cascade mountains Is only Intensified by compari son with what I hitherto thought was the nuial of any section of this world, taking Its record of a quarter of a century as a basis by which to judge. California Is a great gold producer yet and will be for an Indefinite time, but the opportunities for profitable investment and for quick returns I unhesitatingly assert are far superior in the Sumptcr and ad joining mining districts. When one-...

THE SUMPTER MINER. Wednesday, January 10, 1900 FIVE THOUSAND MINERS COMING General Wtntn't Estimate of the Stampede to Sumpter in the Spring. General Charles S. Warren returned several days since from a trip to Hutte, Spokane and Husband. Ik- says that in all of these places, where milling men do largely congregate, Sumpter was an in tercsting topic of conversation, and he was besieged by enquirers who were anxious to secure Information about the i.'impand district. TIioukIi the General doesn't say so himself, the impression prevails among those who know him best, that he sup plied the long felt wants of these earnest seekers after truth. Judging from Inter views, republished in Till: MINI-K last week and this, from Hutte and Hossland papers, he did not attempt to hide Sump ler's daling light under a bushel at any stage of the game. He estimates that live thousand miners w ill come to this district in the spring, a large proportion of whom will come Irom Montana, Idaho, Washington a...
