Wednesday, March 14, 1900 IO THE SUMPTER MINER. RISING SUN GROUP. Another Abandoned Mine Now Proves Promising. In 1 81; 1 the property known as the l.ucUy Hoy, near the Bonanza mine, was beiiiK worked by a syndicate, and thegen eral impression at the time was that it would prove a larger and better mine than its neighbor, the Houana. A live stamp mill was installed and considerable gold ore taken out, which ran tf.50 in gold on the plates, until a horse was struck, which apparently discouraged the owners. At any rate, development work was stopped and a long season of idleness was the re sult. I hrre years ago, the claims, of which there are three in number, were acquired by A. P. and Sam Jones and Sam Kelly, being located as the Rising Sun group. These men have since done a large amount of work, but on different lines Irom that of the original owners, who, it serins, only employed the method of sinking and had reached a depth of but 70 feet. In the winter of i8;8-o;, and the one jus...

Wednesday, March 14, 1900. THE SUMPTER MINER. 11 r ADVICE, PROSPECTORS. Given Without Charge by One of Experience. There Is a simple rule that a large class of mine owners and prospectors should be impressed with every day in the week, if they ever expect to develop or dispose of their property, and it Is this: Terms can often be modified, but misrepresentation can not be explained away, whether In tentional or otherwise. In every camp there are scores of men who return home utterlv disappointed and disgusted because they have been deceived in the value and quantity of ore in a mine or prospect. There Is a class of "alfalfa" prospec tors who are foolish enough to believe that the other fellow does not know anything. A man who examines property for him self or others Is as anxious to find a prop erty as reported as the owner Is to sell or work it. It is most a certainty that where a property comes up to the description or proves a trifle better, that -a sale will be effected, provide...

The statement is often made and has not yet been contradicted or proven Inac curate, that there is sufficient gold dust In every lot In the original townsite of Sump ter and its additions to pay for the lot, even at present prices. This may or may not be true, for It is a subject on which no one has definite information. But it is un doubtedly true that all the surrounding land contains gold; that there are rich placer diggings within the city limits that have been worked for years and still are being profitably worked. The generally accepted theory Is that placer gold comes from quartz ledges. The topography of the surrounding country is such that the "dust" found here could not have c...

Wednesday, March 21, 1900 SUMPTBRS WIDE REPUTE. THE SUMPTER MINER. Every Condition Favorable to Mining Found Here There probably is no other comparative ly new mining district In the United States, with the exception possibly of Cape Nome, that now finds as conspicu ous, as frequent and as favorable mention as does Sumpter, Oregon, writes the min ing editor of the Anaconda Standard. If this district is not one of great prom ise, then It is being written up by gangs of boomers who are either exceedingly vis ionary and optimistic, or utterly destitute of common honesty. Hut we know that some of them are men of both honor and, in general, sound judgment. Besides, it is a demonstrated fact that there are some good mines in the district, and many experienced mining men are showing their confidence by heavy investments there In mining and other properties. Hence, while there probibly Is a vein of exaggeration In some of the reports, as there Is respecting all mining districts in the earli...
