Aug. west side of Puget Sound, which is at this time prominently in tae public cje. due to the ailing indications of earl> rail- road building Into that country, is also coming to the fore from a mining standpoint. Seattle capital is interested In the Ol> mpirs, such men as I. A. Nadeau, Frank Hanford. Victor E. Tul! and W. W. Kelger having prosecuted develop- ment work there for the last three sea- sons. Their interests lie at Iron mountain in Jefferson county, about thirty miles from Port Townsend. and the properties are easily reached In a day's travel from that point. Three seasons of development work has sen ocl to prove values, and a party of some of the gentlemen named accom- panied by a mining engineer is now on the ground selecting the proper place for the installation of machinery preparatory to driving an actual work- Ing tunnel. Iron mountain was discovered by Silas H. Marple, of Brinnon, some years ago. It was thought to be a mammoth iran deposit, but develop ment has shown the existence of cop- per in large quantities under the iron capping. As water power is right at hand and a down hill haul can be se- cured to tide water at Discovery bay, those interested believe they have found a bonanza. For the first time in the historj of the rugged Olympics mining will this year bo prosecuted without cessation on account of winter. A model camp with buildings of heavy logs-has been const! ucted and provender is now be- ing packed In to stock up tho larder for the snowy months when travel be- comes difficult. Aside from the work at Iron moun tain, a great deal of prospecting is go- Ing on at many points in the Olympic range, and, from reports, a number o veiy promising prospects have been located. sim OFFICERS at IRIEfl FOB FRAUD Senator and Representative of Oregon Up for Land Grafting, I (Special to The News.)
