GOLD AT KOSK CREEK.
Rich Find Made by a
Party of Redding
ORE NEAR THE SURFACE.
Heavy Yield of the Precious
Metal in the Samples
MINING EXCITEMENT REVIVED.
It Is Thought That the Newly Found
Lode Is That of the Famous
Lost Cabin Claim.
REDDING, Cal., J«ne 25.— Great excite
ment prevails in mining circles in this city
to-day. A large gold-bearing belt has just
been discovered sixty miles to the north
east.. The belt, so far as prospected, shows
a width of 800 feet, and crops out boldly to
a length of 7500 feet. The ore is dead-black
quartz, heavily impregnated with iron and
showing a trace of copper, and is abso
lutely free milling. Samples have been
ass.iyed by the United States mint and the
Murray Brothers, assayers of this city,
which gave an average value per ton of $00
in gold ami $(> in silver.
The lode is situated on Kosk Creek, near
its junction with Pitt River, and lies be
tween a series of metamorphic and igneous
rock formations. Local geologists arc of
the opinion that it is an outcropping of the
great mother lode of the State.
Old prospectors claim it to be the "Lost
Cabin" lode. In the early sixties, just be
fore the Modoc Indian war, a prospector
found rich float gold ore on Kosk Creek.
He built a cabin and commenced prospect
ing for the ledge which threw it off. This
he succeeded in finding and within a few
months brought to Shasta, which was
then the county seat and chief trading
point, some immensely rich ore. His de
scription of the size of the ledge was such
as to cause a lack of confidence among the
old-time mining men and he returned to
his find without assistance.
Soon thereafter the Modoc war broke
out and the prospector was Rilled by the
Indians and his cabin burned. At inter
vals ever since prospectors have been
looking for the mine, their only clew
being the old prospector's . cabin. Unable
to rind the latter, it naturally acquired
the name of the "Lost Cabin" mine. As
quartz mining ' developed in the county a
new interest ,vas taken in tne old story,
and year after year prospectors headed that
This spring William Murray, with' the
assistance of an old prospector named An
derson, found the remains of the old cabin
and thereafter found the lode. The ore
that the former brought in excited the in
terest of prominent men and a company
was formed to lest the lode thoroughly. .;•:
A party sent out by the company, in
chiding the discoverers, returned to-day
from the mine with a rich sample of the
face of the lode, which is 800 feet wide and
400 feet high where it is cut by Kosk Creek.
The find has created great excitement
and prospectors of all degrees are hurrying
to this district.

HILTON ON THE STAND.

Graphically Described by
PLANNED BY THE PRISONER.
Strong Network of Evidence Con
necting: the Old Man With
UKIAH, Cal., June 25.— The sensation
of the day in the trial of j Deacon Oldham
for complicity in the robbery of the coast
stage was the confession of Hilton, Old
ham's accomplice, made on the witness
stand. Hilton told his story in a straight
forward way and the strenuous ' efforts of
the counsel for the defense failed to shake
On the day of the robbery, May 15,
Hilton went to the home of Oldham to
engage in making pickets. He and Old
ham spoke of the prevailing hard times,
and Oldham said the railroads owned the
country and were robbing the poor people.
He said he knew of a scheme by which he
could make about $5000; that a stage runs
over from Ukiah, by way of Anderson
Valley, and carried a good deal of money,""
and he wanted Hilton to think it over and
he would investigate the route.
"The proposition," said Hilton, "was
for both to go over by Booneville in a cart
and hold up the stage. At that time Old
ham lived in town, and it was hard for us
to get together. Oldham was to make a
trip to Booneville to . move over an outfit
for a blacksmith. I was to go along. The
stage leaving Booneville in the night was
to be robbed by me at that time. But the
nights being bright moonlight, and the
days long, this scheme was abandoned."
Hilton stated that the job was to be done
by himself alone. Oldham was to make up
the alibi and share half the money. The
witness said Oldham, a few weeks before,
had pointed out Jamison, the shotgun
messenger, in Ukiah, so that he would
know him should he see him on the stage.
On the day of the robbery he hid in the
brush and scrutinized the passengers in
the stage closely to see if Jamison was
aboard. Finding he was not in the stage
he took a short cut up the mountain,
headed the stage and got the boxes. Hil
ton said the driver, Russell, had already
thrown one box out before he said a word
to him. He secured $1019 05, retraced his
way back to Oldham's and gave Oldham
$500. Hilton corroborated all the testi
mony given by previous witnesses, even to
the minutest detail, from the planning of
the robbery up to the time of the examina
tion by the justice. On cross-examination
he said he was born in • San Bernardino
: County, but declined to state where his
father, mother or any of his folks are. .
Following Hilton, Sheriff Johnson took
the stand and identified a peculiarly
colored $20 piece found among the stolen
money and a portion of flour-sack in which
the money was wrapped when found in
Bandit Hilton's .possession. The express
boxes, the shotgun, the mask, the overalls,
the $20 piece, the flour-sack and two pairs
of shoes were offered in evidence by the
prosecution, until a goodly portion of the
alphabet was used in marking exhibits.
The express agent, J. S. Hart, also identi
fied the discolored $20.
. Alexander Burke, the Marshal who ac
companied the Sheriff in pursuit of the
robbers, first identified most of the exhibits
and then recounted the tracking of Hilton
and Oldham. One of the shoes offered as
an exhibit had a peculiar indentation
on . the sole, made by a break
in the leather, which left a distinct
mark whenever the track was visible.
Burke bad followed this track through the
mountains until it led to Oldham's camp,
seven or eight miles north. There he
found Oldham and Hilton, whom Oldham
called Wilcox. , Burke produced the small
bits that were cutout of the large piece of
cloth used by the robber for a mask. These,
he testified, were found in Oldham's camp.
The mask proved to be made from a navy
blue flannel shirt, and the sleeves that
were cut out were also found in the same
camp and were used as stockings by Hil
On cross-examination, the defense tried
in vain to break down the testimony of Mr.
Burke. jv77, • 7
Robert Irvine, a 17-year-old boy who
stops at the Stanford home in the moun
tains, told of having seen Hilton near the
scene of the robbery. •,7 ;
At the conclusion of the taking of testi
mony the defense asked that the court dis
miss the defendant on the ground of
insufficient evidence to convict. Justice
Critchfield overruled the motion and held
Oldham to answer under $1000 bonds.
Prominent members of the Baptist
church were put on the stand as character
witnesses for the purpose of reducing the
amount of bail, and many more members
of the church of which Oldham is deacon
and in which he has passed the collection
plate so long could be seen in the thronged
courtroom during the examination. Mrs.
Oldham stood bravely by her husband in
his trouble, notwithstanding that every
thing seemed to be against him.

ISLE OF MONTE CRISTO
A Great Resort Similar to
Coney Island to Be
John McNear and the Golden Gate
Excursion Company In the
The Golden Gate Excursion Company,
in connection with John A. McNear, the
Petaluma millionaire, has perfected plans
for the development of a Pacific Coast
Coney Island. t
The site selected for the resort is the old
McNear landing on San Pablo Bay, an
hour and a quarter's ride from San Fran
cisco by water. The beach line -is. four
miles in length, and the .several j hundred
acres included in the property comprise all
the essential and diversified elements of a
model resort. There are wooded slopes,
glens,, sylvan retreats, an abundance of
spring water piped to the grounds, fishing,
hunting, and spots suitable for. dancing
platforms, bandstands and bicycle-tracks.
It is the purpose of the promoters of the
scheme to establish a resort which shall be
like Coney Island. The McNear landing
has always been considered the proper and
natural terminus of the San Francisco and
North Pacific Railway, but it is a matter
of history that Peter Donahue; the original
owner and builder of the line, having had
trouble with those in control of the land
at the time the line was building, pre
ferred ; to spend a million' dollars in the
construction of tunnels rather than enter
into a compromise in the matter of rights
of way. To that personal difference Tibu
ron owes its existence. : 77 7
Mr. McNear has spent thousands of dol
lars in the improvement of the property,
and he is heartily interested in' the present
enterprise. He will meet the company
which has undertaken the development of
the resort half way, and stand his share
of the expense, building wharves, boule
vards, booths, racetracks, etc.
A shell road is to be constructed along
the shore, connecting with the driveway
leading to San Rafael. There is also to be
a rail connection "between the resort and
San Rafael, so that persons can havo the
choice of two routes— by boat direct, or by
boat and rail via San : Rafael. The place
will be called Monte Cristo.

Lulu Wirt Dashes for Liberty While Be

SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 25.— Lulu
Wirt, who, after attempting suicide several
weeks ago by shooting. herselt with a pis
tol, escaped from the County Hospital and
wandered for two w eeks in the thickets
and ravines of El Dorado-County before
she was captured and returned to the keep

Mrs. Wirt brought Lulu to Sacramento
to-day, and purchased two tickets for
Salem, Or., intending to place her in the
asylum in that city. Having accepted a
position in Salem she desired to have her
daughter near her. As she went up the
steps of the sleeping-car at the depot
to-night Lulu, who was following her
mother, sprang from the platform of the
car and ran rapidly in the direction of the
railroad shops, disappearing in the dark

dilapidated ears that fill the sidings.

daughter, and fears greatly that should

RELICS OF EARLY DAYS.
They Were Discovered in the Ruins of
the Old City ' Hall
In the tearing down of the old City Hall
those engaged in the work are making
many curious finds. In fact a certain por
tion of young San Francisco is now yield
ing up some of its relics to the modern
residents of what was once the thriving
hamlet of Yerba Buena, afterward known
as San Francisco. • r V'^
. All of the discoveries are reminiscent
that is, all the discoveries that are above
the ordinary of early days. On "Monday
afternoon Joe Gumper, one of the men
engaged in the work, discovered a
withered human hand and a pair of
feet cut off at the ankle. The feet
were lost in a tumble of rubbish, but he re
tained the hand. An investigation yester
day showed that the hand was not as an
cient as it was supposed to be, but had
evidently been a relic lost by some medical
student when the Receiving Hospital was
in the corner of the old building, and stu
dents from the Toland Medical College
gathered there. He had probably taken
the feet and hands of a subject there in a
bundle and overlooked them. . An exami
nation of the preserved hand showed that
it had been through a medical process.
As to the other finds which have Deen
made, the best made so far was by a laborer
named Armstrong, who, yesterday, dis
covered a $60 slug among the debris. It
was a new coin to him, but he realized that
it was gold, and refused all offers for it
until he learned from a neighboring broker
what it was worth. He sold it for $55.
Another rind, though not so valuable,
was made in the afternoon. It was a
check for $7 drawn on the Adams Ex
press Company. The finder took the
check to Patrick McDonough's saloon on
the comer of Clay and Kearnv streets, and
the latter purchased it as a memento of
early days for half the face value of the

The Object Is to Secure Funds for a
California Exhibit at
There is hardly a doubt now but what
California will send a splendid exhibit to
the Atlanta ((la.) International Exposi
tion that will be held during the coming
fall. The first and only move in this direc
tion was made by the California State
Board of Trade. For a time" it looked as
though the project would fall through for
want of money, as the State had no fund
for such a purpose and the last Legislature
failed to make an appropriation.
After various ideas had been suggested
Secretary Filcher hit upon a plan that met
with the favor of the members of the
Board of Trade. Under the law the Su
pervisors are empowered to appropriate
money for the promotion of immigration
and the publication of literature calling
attention to the advantages of the special
localities advertised. " With this in mind
Colonel Irish offered a resolution —
That the State Board- of Trade petition the
Governor of -California to call a State conven
tion of County Supervisors to . meet in San
Francisco at some date In the near future for
the purpose of considering the advisability of
making an exhibit of California's productions
at' the said Atlanta Exposition, under the
auspices of the State Board of Trade, and of
pledging sufficient funds for their respective
counties to pay the extra expense which will
necessarily be incurred in making said exhibit.
And, further, that it is the sense of this body
that the County Supervisors should consider
the question of raising funds to maintain the
State Board of Horticulture until the meet
ing of the next Legislature.
In response to this Governor Budd yes
terday sent a telephone • message to
Secretary Filcher stating that he would
call a convention of all the Supervisors in
the State, and asked Mr. Filcher to set the
time and place. The secretary suggested
July 8 and at once secured the Chamber of
Commerce ■ for the convention and Mr*.
Filcher also made arrangements for re
duced rates by railroad for the visiting
He further obtained from a number of
hotel men special rates for the delegates to
the convention. He hopes that the County
Supervisors will become enthusiastic, and
by each county contributing a few hun
dred dollars will soon create a fund for a
fine display, and also be the means of as
sisting the Board of Horticulture, so that
its support will not fall so heavily upon
the Commissioners, who have already con
tributed enough for the present year's ex
