Rich Gold DUeoverlea Reported at Pike's
Peak The Censeqaent Kxcitvmant.
Leabviixe, Cou, April 19. There is
considerable excitement In this city over a
new gold discovery that has jnst been made.
The country of this latest cram is located
west of Pike's Peak, about twenty miles
from Colorado Springs, thlrty-firo miles
from Canyon City, and from Leadril!e
about eighty miles in the most direct line
that could be traveled. .Eighteen years ago,
it is said, tbe same gulch was overran by
prospectors and miners who were enticed
there from the sorrounding contitry by the
report that rich placers had been found.
With the exception of a few encouraging
colors of gold nothing was developed, and
the excitement died out. For years and
years nobody visited the isolated rrgita,
save a few hunters. Two years ago Mr. S.
S. Btadbnm, a former Denver drnggi-st,
who had turned his attention to prospect
ing, was informed by a South Park ranch
man about the early excitement, and his
curiosity was aroused. He obtained the In
formation necessary to guide him to the
gulch. Starting out alone he made his way
to the place and sank a shaft. At a depth
ot eight or nine feet he struck a
CEMTKT-LIKX GKAVEL,
and after having made several raia at
tempts to pan goM from it returned to tbe
valley. Since that time he has wandered
around the country without making perma
nent locations. The more he sbought about
the peculiar formation which he had dis
covered the more be became convinced that
there was something in It. So impressed
was wis Delict, be went bacJc to toe gnlcn
about four weeks ago and obtained a sack of
the gravel and came to Leadville, where ho
had it tested with the most astonishing
results. The material yielded from thirty
to a hundred ounces of gold to the ton.
Being without means he enlisted a number,
ot Leadville men in the scheme,
and led some of them to the scene of
the find. The shaft was eon'taued to a
depth ot eighteen feet, the crea. st secrecy
being maintained by the people interested.
The next set ot samples gave about the
same returns or goio, tne average being
overSl.OOO to the ton. In sinking the shaft
the large and barren-looting pebbles and
rocks encountered were thrown to one side
as worthless, but one of the party, curious
to know it they contained any mineral, took
away a sackful with him. The assay of
these pebbies gave an average of
TEX OUSCXS OF COLD
to the ton. Tins proved to theu that tha
entire body of gravel was pay ore. Tbe
gravel was found at a depth of eight feet
below tne loamy dirt, and tne oed-rock has
not yet been found. Tin expedition with
which the mineral could be mined can be
imagined. If the ore is as rich throughout
as the assays indicate anywhere from 53,000
to $13,000 can be produced per day to the
man employed in the workings. Taken
altogether the discovery is the most mar
velous and promising that has been
made for years. In the twelve lo
cations mads ia the guk-h tbe dis
covery shafts have in every instance pene
trated this gravel after having passed
through from six to eight feet of dirt. Tbe
mineral belt has been exposed for a distaace
of fire miles, and there Is no telling its ex
tent, or bow many other gulches there are in
the country of equal resources and richness.
Quite a number of reliable authorities have
visitrd the camp, and all pronounce it a
v -wder. Among these is Mr. Arthur Cha
nute. There is a large quantity of the ore
in Leadville in the hands of assayers and
samplers.

Egyptian ACairsj
LosrJox, April 20. It is reported that
the English Government will convoke a
European conference to regulate the affairs
with Egypt After several conferences the
French Government assented to the modifi
cation of the Egyptian law on liquidation
and agrees to support the English pro
posals for financial reform in Egypt.
A European conference on the question
is now needles. ro iuruier opposition is
expected from any power. General Gordon
has notified the British Government, owing
to the difficulty and delay experienced in
sending and receiving communications, that
he will henceforth art on h"w own Judgment
and responsibility. General Gordon
telegraphed Sir Samnel Baker under
date of April 8. as followsr "We
have pruvbious for five months but arc

Arabs. Our position will be much better

ent. Do vim think if an appeal was made
to the millionaires of England and the
United Slates for 200,000. it would be
available" If the Sultan of Turkey will
send 2,000 or 3,000 .Nizams to Berber under
Zebehr Pasha, we could not only settle af

Strike at w Orleans.
NkwOrleax, April 21. The carpen
ters and Joiners and other house-bulldicg
mechanics have been f often days in a state
ot dissatisfaction. They have been pro
testing agabist middlemen, or con
tractors, wbo take contracts to build
houses. The workmen want to deal
directly with the owner of the work to be
done, and they demand three dollars a daj
wages for alt Journeymen regardless ot stllL
They also demand the excinsTon of all non
union men. A refusal on the part ot bosses
to class all Journeymen as worth the same
wages culminated in an order from the Cen
tral Commit tee of the House-builders' Union
for a general strike. This will stop the
work of about 1,000 men on the Exposition
building.

Francis Adams, of the Arbitration Board ot
