His Little Interview With a Deputy
Progress no Is Making In Sinking a
Shaft in the "Big Tiling"
[Special Correspondence Recokb-U^IOX.]
1 am now very busy doing my annual
assessment work in tho Big Thing, a
quartz mine which I discovered nearly
six years ago, and the sharp click of the
hammer as it smites the drill, and the
melodious, vivacious skreek of the wind
lass can be heard distinctly throughout
Nevada County and in some of tho cir
cumjacent country. Tho sickening thud
of the hammer as it now and then misses
the drill entirely and tears from my loft
hand a largo section of cuticle, epidermis
and sweat glands of no use to anybody
but the owner, wells out upon tho pow
der impregnated atmosphere, followed by
a wild, unfettered How of language that
•would almost persuade a Democrat to be
I am feeling quite well and strong, and
have developed several new muscles,
ihoso most noticeable being in my legs,
and in my spinal column, which I use
frequently as a prop to steady myself
against the side of the shaft when getting
' ready to tire a blast. Blasting with giant
powder is great fun. It not only amuses
and instructs, but has an elevating influ
ence which has been noticed on many
occasions by better miners than myself.
It developes and encourages a coolness of
the head, steadiness of the hands, and
great activity of the legs; also a tendency
to look ever onward and upward. In a
country where trees and other means of
shelter grow small it might be employed
for tho reduction of corpulence. This is
not the first time, however, that I have
used giant powder to break down and
annihilate the stony barriers that stand
between myself and fortune, and there is
little ground upon which to base the hope
that the residents of Hani scrabble will
some day see my spirit ascend to heaven
from the shaft.
The Big 'thing has not yet reached that
deep, guttural state of development which
catches tho eye and tickles the fancy of
the sagacious Eastern sucker, but is forg
ing along slowly, and if my powder holds
out and 1 do not lose any of my arms,
legs or wings, I will eventually bring it
into high repute. It is quito high up on
the side of a hill now and there is great
danger, I am told, of a landslide in the
"winter season. This would dump the
llig Thing into the aba River and the
Anti-Debris Association would probably
find out, by analyzing the river water,
that something had been going on sur
reptitiously in the mining region and get
out an injunction. A landslide in the
winter season will not injure me person
ally, because I do not work in the shaft
in tho winter season. When the rains
come I cork it uptight, tie a piece of
sausage wrapper over it and fasten with
ian antiseptic string. Then, in the
smothery days of summer, when tho bee
beeth, the cow coweth and the sweet
milkmaid singeth and no villain pur
sueth, I resume my labors in the bowels
of the earth.
Many curious people have dropped in
upon me at the shalt and discussed the
outlook. Among them was a short,
dark-skinned young man, who slid down
the rope and lauded on my back. He was
a bustling young chap, and had business
sticking out all over him. He said he
was a Tax Collector's.deputy, and he had
come down expressly to sell me a road
poll-tax receipt for t>3. Thou ho smiled
sweetly and spat on the handle of my
shovel, and took out his receipt-book and
••You're a tax collector, eh?" I asked
"Yes, sir," he said.
"Live around here?"
"Wal, not right 'round here. Over the
hill a spell."
"Oh! How much do you get for col
"I get a commission of so much for
every receipt I sell."
"You sell 'em, do you?"
"Please say 'yes, sir." Would you sell
me more than one if you could?"r
"And you'd give tho money for both
receipts to the county?"
"Aw, no, 'course not."
"Hum ! And you're really a real live
tax-collector, are you?"
"That's what I am."
"Do you sleep well?"
"I reckon I do."
"What do you eat?"
"O, you're foolin'! Gimme three dol
"Road poll-tax— is road poll-tax?"
"Darned if I know."
"What's it for?"
"Darned if I know."
"How old are you
"Darned if I know— mean—O, er—
"I said it was a nico day. How's your
"I said I was broke."
"O, you're gassin'!"
The conversation seemed to have run
down to a point, and the collector was
nervous. There were v two or three paio
spots behind his ears, and I thought there
were tears in his eyes.
"Now, look here," I said, very sternly,
and in my most naughty manner,
"how do I know you are a Tax Collector,
or a Deputy Tax Collector, or anybody?
How do I know that you are not a fraud,
or an impostor, or a hallucination? I be
lieve you are a hallucination. My liver
hasn't been right for two or three days,
and when I got bilious I am awfully
bothered, sometimes with hallucinations.
I believe you are a hallucination. Here,
stand around, till I hit you a crack with
the pick and see whether you are a hal
lucination or not."
'"I ain't anything of the sort. You jist
gimme three dollars an' let me go!"
"Say," I asked, "what did you get into
this shaft for?" * /
"'Cause I thought you couldn't dodge
me here, an' I've been dodged too darn
"Oh, that was it. Well, say, I'm going
to put in a blast."
"Gimme three dollars!"
"Wait till the blast goes off."
"You won't need it then. I'm going
out and leave you and the blast to fight it
-out together in tho shaft."
"Lord, no! Don't blast until I get out.
Say, how do you get out?''
• "Go up on top and wind yourself out
with the windlass."
Then there was silence for a moment
and 1 arranged the fuse.
• Good for dyspepsia and loss of appetite."

Victoria on Apollinaris Water.

do if I have paid my tax ?"
"Oh, vch; you must swear."
"That you've paid 'em."
"Oh, I see. Well, ."
"No, no! That ain't the way to swear."
"Look here, young man! I've been an
editor once or twice in my life, and I
guess I know how to swear. At any
rate, I don't want any jay collector to
to tell me I don't know. * And further

"And I've got an old receipt book in

"< 'h. let's quit this fooliu'. You gimme
three dollars, or show your receipt, or
swear. I don't want to stay in this
bloody hole no more."
"But I want your authority—l want to
know whether you have a right to col
lect tax. Will you swear that you are a
real, genuine tax-collector, fully vested
with the power, etc., as by law provided,
or words to that ertoct, and that you do
most solemnly swear that you do most
"Yes, yes; I'll swear!"
"All right. Now, then, you repeat
-what I say: I do most solemnly swear
tiiat I have been duly authorized* to col
lect a tax known as the county road poll
tax, in and for the county of Nevada,
.state of California, and that I will report
correctly the amounts collected, and will
not dispose of more than one receipt to
any one .man, nor give or lend receipts,
nor exchange them for Hour, bacon or
underwear, nor will I in any way use
them otherwise than as provided by law:
and, furthermore, and in addition to tho
foregoing oath, I solemnly swear that I
will not use the money by me collected
as collateral wherewith to buy beer on
the fourth of July, nor to "purchase
tickets for the World's Fair, nor to aid in
the institution of a revolution in Peru,
Chile or Brazil, nor to foster and promote
treason, arson or the Democratic party,
iu.r to invest the same in any way what
soever, wheresoever and whensoever, ■ex
cept as provided by law. And I also
affirm that 1 am not such a simple fool as
The young man swore as directed, and
when the oath was finished swore with
out "neing directed. I then gave him tiio
$i he so coveted, and he went his way in
peace, leaving a receipt and his pencil in
my hand. I think I am the only man
who ever '"swore" a tax collector.
I do not like to have people come to the
mouth of tho shaft when 1 am working,
and lie down on tho loose dirt above and
hang their heads over the edge and talk.
Every day or so somebody does it, and
the powder smoke that hangs in the shaft
makes them sneeze. The thought that
some blamed idiot may snap his head off
with a sneeze and send it down with a
sodden glug onto my neck is not pleas
ant. It makes mo nervous at times. But
that is a thing these simple-hearted
mountain folk do not know until they
have, as the saying is, done cone and
done it. One man who talked to me in
this way had been a prospector, once upon
a time, and gave me much valuable in
formation. Among other things ho said,
in a slow and impressive way:

Another man who happened along
wanted to know whether! was digging
for water or hunting for a socket.
"If you're digging for water," he said,
"you won't find it, and if you're huntiu'
for a socket you won't find thai neither.
Sockets is mighty blame scarce around
here. There was a leller found one at
Rough and Ready onct, with six bits in
it. it wasn't a very good day for sockets,
Some men would be too high-toned to
do their assessment work with their own
hands, but lam not. I was once, and I
hired a man to finish a tunnel. It wasn't
a very big tunnel, aud he agreed to finish
it for his board and clothes and tobacco.
He besan work at 7 in tho forenoon, and
at 4 in the afternoon he came to mo and
"Well, Scan, I've finished that one.
Got any more?" I went out to see. and,
lo! the honest man had dug the tun
nel to a fine point, like the sharp end
of a pencil. It was a good lesson, and
now I prefer to finish my own groat
works. I get along quite well with my
self, and we seldom quarrel with each
other. I believe that a habit of bickering
and squabbling is most pernicious, and
in many cases leads on to divorce.
I am batching here, and will write you
ever and anon henceforth, giving you a
clear and comprehensive account of the
progress made at tho mine, with such
other matters as may please aud instruct

HEALTH AND ECONOMY.
Advantages of a Pure Water Supply
for the City.
Protection Against Firo, Also—lts low
Cost and Economy Over tho
Present Poor System.
In conversation yesterday with one of
the directors of tbo .Sutler Club, a Reo
okd-U>tion' reporter learned that so in
adequate is the water supply in the up
per stories of the new bank building, at
Fourth and J streets, it had become nec
essary for the directors to appoint a com
mittee to wait on the City Trustees and
see if something cannot be done to im
prove the water-service system.
The reporter then called upon A. Ab
bott, Cashier of the California State
Bank, who recently took so much pains
to test the extent of the water supply
east of tho city and its quality, and asked
him the present status of the project of
procuring a supply from wells out there.
"Well," replied Mr. Abbott, "the mat
ter stands just where it did, I believe, be
fore we made the tests some months ago.
It cost me individually nearly £1,000 to
prove that there is an inexhaustible sup
ply of puro water to be had right at the
city limits. 1 have satisfied myself of
thia fact; 1 spent my money for that par*
cose; the results wore given to the pub
lic, and I am satisfied with my experi
ence. If the people of the city wish to
! profit by the results obtained they can
Being asked If he was preparod to give
any figures on the cost of an adequate
plant, Mr. Abbott said he had about
wearied of the whole matter, as the pub
lio appeared to be indifferent about it;
bat he had ligured on Che requirements
and cost, and would give the following
from memorandums lie had made and
the guaranteed oilers ho had received
from manufacturers of high-class pump
4*ln the first place," said ho, "I wish
to emphasize the fact that there is an in
exhaustible supply of water to bo had by
boring wells in the gravel section near
the city; also that .state Analyst Rising
lias pronounced the water to bo of the
best quality. We start out, then, with
these two requisites—an abundant supply
and pure water. I have thoroughly in
vestigated the matter of the cost of the
proposed plant, and it may be brietly
summed up as follows:
"Three compound pumping engines of
the best quality and workmanship, each
having a capacity of :j,500,00J gallons of
water in twenty-four hours.
"These pumps to be supplied with
and operated by first-class boilers.
"A suitable and substantial building
for the plant*
'Thirty-inch water mains to connect
the present pipe system with the pumps,
affording an abundant supply and uni
form pressure all over the city.
"Thirty acres of land on which to locate
and inclose the plant.
"The entire plant to be of the highest
class of workmanship and guaranteed to
supply 10,000,000 gallons af water every
twenty-four hours, with a domestic pres
sure of fifty pounds to the square inch.
"The machinery to be guaranteed capa
ble of putting on a IXJ-pound pressure iho
moment a fire alarm is sounded.
"These items indicate tho kind of plant
which responsible parties are ready to
furnish, tho highest estimate of the cost of
which is less than £150,000.
"Let us put it at this figure, to be safe,
and what does it amout to? From care
ful investigations which I have made I
do not hesitate to say that such a plant as
that described can be maintained at a sav
ing of not less than £8,000 annually on tho
present cost of operating the poor system
we now have, and which is wholly inad
equate to the wants oi tho city.
"Plight thousand dollars represents the
interest on upward of £Jso,oDo—more than
twice the cost of tho proposed plant.
"Suppose," added Mr. Abbott, "two or
three or more fires should start in this
city at onee—where would be, since the
present works are barely able to supply
enough for one fire, and then only at
points along the larger mains?
"When F say that parties who have
given mo estimates guarantee to put on a
!»0-pound lire pressure, it nieaus a great
deal. For instance, about the highest
pressure obtained at the nozzle of a fire
hose attached to one of our modern steam
tire-engines is To pounds, and this com
parison will give some idea of what a iHj
pound pressure is."
"But, Mr. Abbott," asked tho roportor,
"how could the city raise even the f 150
--000 necessary for such a plant, even i? the
people had senso enough to demand it?
is she not in a position that prevents her
from issuing any more bonds at pres
"Ah, that is a point I had almost for
gotten to speak of, and I'm glad you
asked mo the question. No, tho city is
not debarred from issuing new bonds.
You see, we are diminishing the city
debt so rapidly that peoplo do not keep
pace with the reduction. The city has
now so large a margin within the 15 per
cent, limit that sho can issue bonds
enough to do nearly all the work that
has been proposed to have done on tho
levees, and put up thia pumping plant
bosidns, and this margin is growing
wider all the time.
"While it is true we all want to wipe
out tho old debt as early as possible,
still we don't want our city wiped out
by fire before that can be accomplished,
and I submit it as simply a fair business
proposition that it would be a great
economy—to say nothingofr.il other con
siderations, such as health, the good
opinion of visitors, etc.—to borrow the
money and perfect a splendid water sys
tem at once."

will give an exhibition of his wonderful
marksmanship witli the rilie and shot
gun. Ho is probably the most expert
marksman living, and some of his fancy
shooting is marvelous. At the park the
entertainment will introduce Western
celebrities,wild Sioux, Cheyenne, Apache,
Pawnee and Washoe Indian warriors; a

drove of Texas steers aud a herd of wild
horses in the activities of wild American
life on the Western frontier. The salient
features are: Grand parade of principal
characters: equestrian entry, the starting
of the Pony Express; quarter-mile nee
between Mexicans, cowboys and Indi
ans: luo-yard race between Indians on
horse and foot; riding and subduing of
bucking horses; exhibition of marksman
