DREDGING FOR GOLD
GIVES RICHES FOR ALL
North California Teems
With the Greatest
OLD CHANNELS GIVE
UP YELLOW METAL
Copper Camps in Arizona Look
Doing Big Things
While the trend of attention seems
to be foeUß9d upon the big things In
mining Mint come from Onldflekl, To
nopah, Bullfrog nnd other mining cen
ters, It might bs well to stop and
' consider what Is actually being done In
the golden state of California In the
mining Industry. The output of gold
for the pnst fiscal year Is placed in
round numbers at $20,000,000, which fnr
exceeds the combined output of the
yellow metal In all Nevada,
One feature of mining In California;
In fact, one of great magnitude, Is
dredging for gold. When announce
ment Is made that at Jum Pup or at
Tlncannup ore that runs $400 a. ton is
streaking a ledge, the rush with pike,
pistol and burro is on, but when It Is
said that on the Feather river and on
the American, the Yuba, Calaveras,
Klamath and Trinity rivers, where
companies are now employing forty
three dredgers and four others are
being constructed, and that between
$2,600,000 and $3,000,000 has been In
vested in these machines and over $1,
000,000 additional capital has been pal<l
out for the land which has been bought
for the purpose of dredging, opinion
may well be divided as to where gold
Is really found.
The chief operations are being con
ducted on the Feather river, where
twenty-eight dredgers are at work,
and .on the American river, where
eight other machines are running. An
expert estimates that there are not over
100,000 acres of land In the state avail
able for dredßlng trtr gold. This is
probably an underestimate, as It has
been recently proposed to dredge the
terraces in the neighborhood of Oro
vllle, and it Is believed that large areas
of auriferous land In other counties can
be profitably worked with dredgers
' without Injury to the navigable streams
or the agricultural lands.
Estimates have been made that twen
ty-six corporations engaged in dredg
ing expend from $2000 to $4000 a month
for supplies and labor for each machine.
It is estimated that It will cost the
dredging companies $300,000,000 for la
bor and supplies to work the 100,000
acres assumed to be available for dredg
ing, from which the companies engaged
in the business expect to obtain a cor
responding amount In dividends. These
figures show the enormous extent and
value of the Industry. Some agricul
tural land is being temporarily If not
permanently destroyed; but a large pro
portion of the area to be dredged Is
either now covered with the debris of
hydraulic mining or is unsulted for ag
Venture Hill Copper
■ Those of Los Angeles who are In
terested In the Venture Hill copper
mines near Jerome, Ariz., have been in
formed that last week an outfit and
force of men was sent to the property
of the company, where the workings
on that property will be cleaned out
and straightened preparatory to con
tinuing development work. The late
heavy rains have caused a number
of caves In the different tunnels and
shafts, which It will take several days
to clean up, when development will
Immediately follow. The Venture Hill
Is located Just south of the Cleopatra,
and Ib acknowledged to be one of the
most promising properties in ths
Cleopatra Copper Outlook
With every foot of work on the
Cleopatra copper mine at Jerome there
Is something n*w to tell of the richer
ores encountered, and that the com
pany is developing rapidly a large and
rich body of ore. This Is especially
being demonstrated in the winze being
sunk from the Wlningham tunnel.
From this winze miners continue to
take ore that increases In value ns
depth is attained. The work, is now
down to a depth of thirty feet and has
gone through twenty-five feet of poy
ore. Not a pound of waste has gone
over the dump from this twenty-five
feet of work.
Th« drifts from the Dillon tunnel are
filling with mineral as progress Is
made and It now looks as If a few
more feet would bring both into solid
Quicksilver In Oregon
The Oregon Mining Journal reports
that more attention Is given to the.
production of quicksilver in Oregon
than at any previous time. In a review
of the situntlon the Journal says in
The flattering showing made by ro
cent retorts of ore from the cinnabar
mines of the Meadows quicksilver dis
trict of Jackson county, neur Trail,
has caused a revival of Interest In th«
mining of mercury In this (Medford)
section. Klghty pounds of mercury to
the ton are produced. A small plane
has been erected for development pur
poses mainly. The retort has a capac
ity of 1400 pounds of ore per duy.
There are a' half score of cinnabar
mines in the Meadow* district, all of
which are receiving attention, and ttll
carry values In mercury. .Several am
opened to a depth of 150 and 200 feet,

at the Murchle. The resumption of
work at the Home mine also adds to
the good outlook. The Lecompton
mine is In the Willow valley district.
The ore was encountered in a cross
cut from the 400-foot level.
Tombstone Is Aglow
The Tombstone Consolidated com
pany that haß undertaken the task of
pumping out the old mines of the
olden days of that camp is reported
so sanguine of success in its under

meeting ordered another pumping
plant having a capacity of 2,500,000
gallons. This pump will be Installed
on the 800 foot level and ready for
work about June 1. With this addi
tional pump at work, sinking on the
ore bodies will continue, and the rich
es that are believed to exist at greater
depth will soon be utilized by the Im
proved machinery for reduction.
Gold Dollar Placers
In Trinity county the Gold Dollar
mine, while a new property, Is reported
as developing Into one of the richest
in the Canon creek section. The mine
Is at a point where Forty Dollar gulch
flows into the creek, and there is an
Interesting bit of history connected
with this particular portion of the
Canon creek placer mines.
Lawrence Frank, an old prospector
who was well known not only on
Canon creek but up and down the
whole course of Trinity river as well,
stopped one day at the stream flowing
down this gulch, his mind intent, not
on hunting for the alluring yellow
metal, but upon quenching his thirst,
and upon stooping down to drink his eye
was attracted by something that made
him forget for a, moment that he was
thirsty, while he picked up a smoothly
worn nugget of gold. The only avail
able gold scales in the vicinity would
weight no more than two ounces, and
this nugget was found to be too heavy
to weigh upon these scales, but the
prospector sold It for $40, and from
that Incident the sulch was named
"Forty Dollar gulch."
More of the Same
In 1871 an old prospector whom Trin
ity residents will remember by the
name of "Johnny Bull," mined on the
bank of Canon creek near this same
Forty Dollar gulch and found a nugget
containing $800 In gold. This is the
largest nugget ever found along Canon
creek. A few years later, or in 1876, J.
Barleycorn was working In the same
neighborhood, ground sluicing a bench
of gravel just a few yards above Forty
Dollar gulch, and Immediately below
the channel where the Gold Dollar mine
is baing operated, and in six days'
work took out $1800. The place he
worked may be seen by the side of the
Ledges Are Found
These stories were for a long tlrrm
common talk among the residents of
Junction City and vicinity, but no one
thought of going up on ths slds of the
mountain to find the source of the gold
that had washed down and lodged in
these bars and benches, until In the
fall of 1900 Alexander Gilzean and Jo-
Beph Elliott, who often went by the
nickname of Jim Davis, working upon
the theory that there must be an old
river channel higher up on the moun
tains that fed these benches and bars,
,went systematically to work to pros
pect the higher ground. They met
with some discouragement, but on the
12th day of December, 1900, Mr. OUzean
found $1.73 In small gold lying In the
bottom of his pan after he had washed
out a panful of gravel, and knew that
he had "struck^t." The next day three
flour sacks were filled with the gravel
nn<". carried down the steep hillside to
Canon c r «*£ 260 yards away, and upon
helnt; witv.h'Ml $18.20 waa obtained.
Sacking the Gravel
In order the better to transport thi
gravel to Canon creek they then con-
Btruct«d a rough 'hand sled, and after

the creek to he washed. This method
of mlnlnjr netted them In twelvn daye,,
$710 In gold, and then they stnrted In
to fit tip the mine for more economical
snd efficient working. After locating
the ground they continued to work
upon a small scale, adding Improve
ments from time to time until they had
the mine fully equipped. There In now
upon the property a good ditch bring

Coarse Gold Pound
A group of six claims are Included
in the property, containing 220 acres,
and of this about eighty Is working
gravel. There are several ancient
river channels running through the
property which have been prospected
nnd found to be rich In gold bearing
gravel. It Is estlmnted thnt this grav>l
will produce $15,000 to the acre. In the
channel where mining operations are
being conducted the gravel Is from
twelve to fifteen feet deep nnd from
the grnvel to the surface of the ground
there Is about thirty-five to forty feet
of loam, making the total height of thft
bank about forty-five to fifty-five feet.
The gold is mainly coarse, and many
fine specimens have been taken out;
but fine gold Is also found, not only in
the gravel, but also In the overlylns
dirt clear to the surface. In the work
that haa been done about 120 yards of
bedrock have been stripped, from
which more than $11,000 has been
taken, and the amount of gold In
creases ns the channel is followed up.
Nuggets Are Found
About two miles south of Yreka.
Cai., James Plummer, a prospector of
the old school, has made a rich strike
near the old Mountain King claim,
formerly worked, from which he re
cently realized about $1200 in nuggets.
One of the nuggets 1s about twelve or
thirteen inches long and two Inchcj
wide, a flat, thin piece, valued at $300.
Keckathorn & Wademan took out $6000
from the Mountain King mine, In
which Wademan was killed while
blasting. The find by Plummer is Just
above the Dave Ream claim, where he
Intends continuing development in the
hope of finding a permanent ledge.
Angelenos In Mining
That Mohave county, Arizona, is at
tracting the attention of Los Angeles
Investors is shown by the following
Items taken from the Klngman Miner:
G. H. Hooper, a Los Angeles mining
man, has arrived In Klngman. Mr.
Hooper Is Interested In the Rosborough
& Johnson Copper Prince property, on
Bill "William fork, and is here looking
after the new company's Interests. Mr.
Hooper made the deal on the Railroad
and other properties in the Gold Road
country a year or so ago.
Theodore P. Lamb, who returned
from Los Angeles, has gone to Chlo
ride, where he will look after the New
Jersey mine, on which he has a bond.
As soon as the railroad is put in com
mission it is the intention to make a
shipment of ore to the smelter. The
property Is one of the good things in
the Chloride section.
1... D. Godshall has returned from
Needles and Los Angeles, where he
negotiated the purchase of the Needles
smelter and the holdings of the Fletcher
Mining company of Los Angeles in this
county. The smelter will be over
hauled and its capacity added to. A
roaster will also be put in and Inside
of three months the smelter will be
blown in. Contracts are to be let on
the Twins wine and that property will
be opened up in a thorough manner.
J. F. Burkhard came in from Los
Angeles Wednesday and departed to
the Tyro mines. He was met in Klng
man by his brother, H. J. Burkhard,
who has been looking after affairs at
the mine during his absence In Califor
nia. The mines are said to be opening
In splendid shape.
The German-American Mining com
pany, owned In Los Angeles, Is prepar
ing for the installation of a milling
plant at the mine. The machinery Is
partly on the ground and the balance
will be brought in as fast as possible.
The company has opened a large
amount of ground, and development is
being carried on at the mines with
John Brockman, accompanied by a
friend, came in from Los Angeles yes
terday and departed to the Dempsey-
ODea mines at once. It in said that
splendid ore is now being taken from
the mines and that with every foot of
depth better ore is being: encountered.
M. S. Cook made an examination of
a mining property on the Lower Sandy
owned by Henry Olea and departed to
Los Angeles Monday with his samples.
The mine is said to be one of the best
little gold properties In the Sandy
P. 11. Smith, a young mining man
from Windsor, Nova Scotia, made an
-examination of the Acadla mines, In
Aubrey district, the first of the week.
He departed to Los Angeles last even
ing and will go to Boston for a confer
ence with his company. He will return
to Klngman in abount slk weeks.
W. H. Taggart arrived last Wednes
day from Los Angeles, where he has
been looking after mining affairs the
past several months. It is expected
that the C. O. D, mine, In which he Is
heavily interested, will soon be oper
ated by the new corporation.

TWO TRUST CONCERNS THROW
FRUIT ON MARKET
BUTTER IS NOT CHANGED
Eggs Remain Steady — Fish Too Plen.
tiful— Fresh Fruit Arrives— Fancy
Potatoes Scaree — Texas
.Onions Are Due
Los Angeles fruit jobbers are won
dering whether a war has developed
In the banana market. On Saturday
bananas were being generally sold at
3c, 3%c and 3 l-3c a pound In bunch
lots and this too on classification In
quality. From Inspired southern
sources It is learned that the Inde
pendent banana growers, with head
quarters in New Orleans, has selected
certain markets to give the banana
trust a go for the trade, and Los An
geles is the spot for attack in the
southern part of the Pacific coast.
Those who seem possessed of in
formation say that the Independent
growers are slaughtering prices, first,
because the stock In Central America
is large, and that they must keep
their ships employed even at a small
profit, and second that the fresh fruit
In the east and on the coast meets
the banana and that prices must be
sacrificed to market the goods. How
ever correct these views may be the
fact remains that those dealers who
handle trust goods are meeting this
competition and slaughter. The
market is demoralized, and peddlers
are taking the overripe and culls at
low prices. Shipping Is in limited
quantities. Last week the receipts
reached ten carloads, 1 being renlty
four carloads in excess of require
ments. This causes stocks to' be large,
and every banana room of any con
sequence in this city is filled. It Is a
war that Interests the consumer, but
hits hard the cash account of the
BUTTER NOT LOWERED— Butter
dealers say they will not adhere to
the 45 cent price for valley creamery,
as the butter board on Saturday again
made this price. Storing must follow
and the trade In general says that
prices are out of proportion to condi
tions. "Butter King" Smith says he
has 30,000 pounds of butter to sacrifice
and more to come, and plenty of back
ing, as he intends to stand on his
price of 40 cents a roll.
CHERRY SEASON OPENS— If re
ports that have come to Los Angeles
from the north are correct, the coming
cherry crop will be only one-half of
the usual amount. Today the cherry
season will open with blacks being of
fered at $4.00 for a box of eight
pounds. They come from Vacavllle.
It Is said that the recent cold rains,
when the trees were In flower, buds
were injured and knocked off, render-
Ing the prospects for the Royal Ann
crops one-half, for the black cherries
one-half, and that the small white
cherry will yield only one-fourth of a
crop. Shipments are going east, and
until this demand is satisfied the price
will be firm and the supply limited.
EGGS TJNCHANGED-On the pro
duce exchange Saturday the egg
quotation committee again fixed the
selling price of eggs at 21 cents for
California ranch. Demand is reported
steady, and supplies are ample for
all purposes. If prices will advance
this week Is a conjecture. Northern
eggs It Is regarded serve to keep
prices lower. Some storing of locals
