Hebrew Benevolent society and the
Kaspare Cohn Hospital association was
held yesterday afternoon at the Temple
B'nal B'rlth. The reports of the officers
were submitted, which showed a satis

gratifying. Following the reports the
officers for the ensuing year were
elected. ' Jacob Schlesinger, who has
served as the president of both associa

PILE THEIR MATERIALS IN
Prominent New York Contractor Says
"Cleaner Los Angeles" is Not.
Possible While Nuisance ,
. Continues ..
"Los Angeles will . not have clean
streets and an abatement of the dust
nuisance until an ordinance is passed
by the city council and enforced by the
proper authorities prohibiting building
contractors from piling up their ma
terials in the public highways as they
are now doing." , ,;",
This la the comment on "a cleaner
Los Angeles" by John, Miller, for thirty
years a prominent contractor of New
York city, who with his wife is spend
ing the winter In Los Angeles.
"The authorities of New York city
do not allow a wagon load of material
to be . placed in the street when a'
building is being erected," Mr. Miller
said last night, "and New York is one
of the cleanest cities in the United
States. Here they allow anything to
be piled in the street and contractors
do about as they want to with j the

people passing, the sand, rtlrt and re

it is almost an easy for the materials
to be dumped into the cellar and then
used as needed. • • .

was put Into effect, we contractors
made a great hue and cry, because we

"Contractors trf Los Angeles would
probably fight the measure but It has
been successfully - enforced for j years
In New York and plays no small part
lv the cleanliness of the streets, and
the same thins can be done here.

Stampede Causes Much Suffer

Up in thnt rlproorlng ret rich and

alleged discovery of the Breyfoglo
mine that stampeded the prospectors
from GoldfleW and from Bullfrog, and
from Bwallowtall an* from other shiv
ering camps, almost caused a lynching
bee because the so-called discovery has
been dynamited to smithereens by the
Bullfroggers, Swallowtallera and other
tailers who rushed into the desert coun
try to grab a slice of the ledges from
which gold could be knocked off with
jan axe. The alluring tale told by the
'lone prospector who evidently had
drank deep and long, stampeded the
whole Bullfrog camp and men rushed
off by day and night to a point scv*
vnteen miles southward, where the
strike wa» said to be. Many did not
equip themselves properly and some
were in Imminent danger of dying from
exposure, and when they returned they
were so wrathy that they talked of

However, through this reported dis
covery Inyo county, California, is
again made famous, as Frank Harris,
better known as "Shorty" Harris, has
made a atrlKe fifty miles south of. the
cr.mp with the reHonant name that will
develop Into a rich property. ' •'
More particularly, the new strike Is
located twenty-five miles west of Sur
veyors' wells In Inyo county, Cali
fornia. The point is reached by going
first to Willow Springs, then to Sur
veyors' wells, and through Cotton
wood canyon to the discovery. The
ground la apart from Death valley, and
so situated thut wood and water can
be had In plenty from the mountains
near by, which are a break up of the
Panamint range. The Carson & Col
orado railroad Is only sixty miles dis
Harris saya that "It Is a beautirul
country." The contact is in lime and
granite, and can be traced for fifteen
miles. There is already a crowd of
goldseekers going Into the new coun
try and it will not be long before the
entire area will be located. ■
Harris knows the desert country per
fectly and was accompanied on his
prospecting trip- that turned out so
successfully by L. P. McGeary and
E. G. legot. who are now staking out
the best • looking ground.
Harris' shows some splendid gold ore
from the strike and declares that $250
reck is common where he and his part
ner are staking claims. Not satisfied
•with this, Harris also reports that Bam
Morris and Sam Phail, who are known
in Los Angeles as having traversed the
entire Panamint country in quest of
the yellow metal, have located excellent
copper claims at Cow creek, ; seven
miles south of Furnace canyon, and
that sixty-four psr cent of the ore is
copper, from a ledge 2 1-2 feet wide.
Rich Searchlight Mines
The entire Searchlight district of
Southern Nevada Is tributory to Los
Angeles, and In that section an im
mense amount of Angeleno capital is
invested. C. C. Brown of Los Angeles,
yeaTs ago, then a leading mining engi
neer, prophesied that the Quartzite
mine of Searchlight would prove to be
one of the richest gold mines in the
western half of the United States, and
would later rank among the ten great
gold mines of the world. From indica
tions that time seems to have arrived
and the prophecy made when the
property was in its infancy has proven
true. The showing now on the 700-foot
level, together with the ground opened
up above, makes the Quartzite not
enly one of the ten big mlnea of the
world, but one of the largest known
I'ree-mllllng propositions. On the first
of the year the stamp mills of that
district, four In number, sixty stamps
in Rli, were turning out a quarter ot
a million dollars a month. This isn't
much but It will do nicely for the four
It takes time to open and equip,

what would be equivalent to 100 twen
