Althouse, Josephine County, PO address, Kirbyville. 15 miles southeast of Kirbyville, on Althouse Creek, is a noted mining locality of southern Oregon. The placers were discovered early in 18-53, and a great rush of miners took place. The mines were exceedingly rich, and many large fortunes were the result of the venture. Sailor Diggings, as a portion of the mining settlement was called, became famous. The creek takes its rise in the Siskiyou Mountains, and runs northerly, forming one of the tributaries of the Illinois, which flows through a fertile valley to the ocean. The principal mining operations at present are confined to the bed of the stream, which is turned by expensive tunnels through projecting points of the mountains. For some years past the mining has been mostly conducted by Chinese, but white labor with the aid of capital and enterprise is again getting control. The annual product is about $40,000, but with the improved systems now in use in California, it is believed the returns will be greatly increased. Valuable copper veins have been found in the vicinity, but are not extensively worked at present

Auburn, Baker County, PO 11 miles south west of Baker City, is located among the lower timbered hills of the Blue Mountains, in the northeastern portion of the State, about 350 miles from Portland by the usual traveled route. The place was settled upon the discovery of gold in the vicinity, in 1860, and rapidly grew to the proportions of a large and populous town, numbering at one time between 3,000 and 5,000 inhabitants. The placers were very rich, but were not lasting; and the other interests of the section being undeveloped, Auburn declined in importance, until but a dozen or more white families remained. The Chinese still continue mining with some success, and some halt-dozen small trading establishments are maintained. A mining company is now engaged in running a bed rock tunnel and flume on Blue Canon, below the town, by means of which more extensive mining can be carried on. Valuable quartz lodes have also been discovered in the vicinity, and with the development of the agricultural resources promise to revive business to something like its former activity. The stages running between Baker City and Canon City pass through Auburn, by which means regular communication is had.
