A mile from the business portion of town , the ruin of a log cabin, said to be the first ever built In the Sumpter min ing district, in 1862. Around It cluster many memories and traditions of the Eastern Oregon gold fields, and its name suggests one of the world's great trag edies. Hugh Ashbury, Fletcher Anderson, John Reed and James Flanigan are the names of the men who built It. They were all Confederate soldiers and are said to have come from Price's army, but the local historian dosn't relate how they hap pened to leave the confederate service at that date; when, though the fates, or the God of battles, or heavy artillery, or whatever tribunal is the the arbiter of armed conflicts, probably had decided that contest, the judgment had not then been recorded, and the world was watching the contending armies, in that mighty struggle to settle a governmental problem b...

The Intelligent, trained, experienced pros pector, who has seen something of the commercial side of life, knows how diffi cult It is to Influence capital, and is al ways reasonable In his demands, but the unreasonable attitude of a numerous class of claim owners will certainly result in keeping capital out of the district, and more than offset every effort thus far made to attract men of means to enter and develop this field, and thus retard, If not c...

It was his fourth trip over this route. To a MINER man he gave this account of the affair: "I heard some one ahead of me call out to stop. It was so dark that I could see no one, and thought It was the driver of the westbound stage, so I pulled ofLto the right to give him room to pass. After waiting a moment and hearing nothing more, I asked why he didn't drive on; when the highwayman remarked, with an oath, that he meant business and tired his gun Into the air. That convinced me that it wasn't the other stage; that I Was up against It. The fellow told me to throw down the express bag, which I did, without any further argument. He then asked me If I had any passengers, and when I told him one, he ga...
