SAN ANDREAS MINES
Several Big- Properties
Are Being Actively
BIG RETURNS EXPECTED.
A District Rich in Quartz Leads,
Gravel Banks and
EASTERN MEN AND CAPITAL.
Opportunities Are Abundant for
Investment With a Certainty
[Special Correspondence of THE Caix.]
SAN ANDREAS. Cat,., Oct. 13.—Al
though there is uo big producing mine in
the immediate vicinity of San Andreas,
the surface indications are very favorable,
and the numerous shafts being sunk on
pay chutes are sure to develop some good
mines in the near future. During the past
year numerous properties have been
bonded by San Francisco and Eastern
people, and in some of them work is being
prosecuted in good faith. Complaint is
made that many of the bonds were secured
simply for speculative purposes, and prop
erty locked up that otherwise might have
have found legitimate purchasers. This
evil is common to all districts attracting
unusual attention, and can be remedied
only by care in ascertaining the character
and backing of the middlemen who are
acting as promoters. Exrjferience has
proved in mining as in most other enter
prises that middlemen are a necessity, and
when they are of the right kind and are
Batisried with a fair profit on their deals,
they are a benefit to the community at
Jarge. It is in cases where they secure a
bond for a nominal sum and then demand
an exorbitant advance from purchasers
that they become a curse.
The evidences of former great wealth are
to be seen on every hand at San Andreas
and for many miles around. All the
gulches have been washed for placer gold,
the hillsides sluiced for placer quartz, and
three old river channels opened up and
tunneled underneath the entire length of
the townsite. But a short distance away
extensive hydraulicking has been carried
on at numerous places, and even yet there
is some of that kind of raining where the
local conformation is such that no damage
results from the deposition of the debris.
Rich cement gravel channels are still
known to exist in numerous places, es
pecially at Central Hil!, where numerous
»>ld channels converge. The property there
is so subdivided that it would hardly pay a
single owner to construct a bedrock drain
or erect an expensive pumping plant, but
a consolidation of the various interests
could easily be effected and a very valuable
property secured. This is one of the most
inviting opportunities in this immediate
locality. The last work done there on a
channel running under the hill was im
mensely profitable, but there was no drain
age and the hoist and mill finally burned
down and the ground remaining unworked
belonging to the company owning the
.plant, would not justifv new works.
I• In quartz mining all the inducements
exist which may be found in tbe most fav
ored regions of the mother lode. Along
the east of the belt, at the Ford mine and
other places, an immense vein of low-grade
ore is known to exist, with fine walla,
gouge, sulphurets and everything to indi
cate that at depth valuable bonanzas will
be found. On the middle lode are great
bodies of stratified vein material identi
cal with those at Angels in general charac
ter, and which will pay to mill. Depth
here will probably concentrate these
stringers into a solid and permanent vein.
On the footwall or west vein at the Illinois
mine and elsewhere, the prospects are so
favorable that it is reasonable to hope for
another Kennedy or Gwin mine being de
veloped. Following is a summary of the
most important mines contiguous to San
Andreas. all of which have been personally
inspected by the writer:
Coming into San Andreas from Valley
Springs, at the junction of the north
branch of the Calaverus River with Mur
ray Creek, about a mile north of town, the
observing stranger will notice a big white
dump on the extreme point of a high hill,
and will naturally inquire "What mine is
that?" Probably the men who sank the
shaft and created the dump had no idea of
the value or meaning of a standing adver
tisement, but builded better than they
knew. The result at any rate is that few
people come and go frbm San Andreas
without having seen or heard of the Gott
schalk quartz mine.
Judge C. V. Qottschalk has owned this
mine for more than twenty years, but
never worked it more than to sink a 100
--foot shaft and secure a patent for the
ground. The old shaft showed a good
vein and good ore from top to bottom,
holding out every encouragement to con
tinue work and develop a mine, but prob
ably the water leveJ, the old bugaboo
which frightened the pioneer prospectors
in quartz, was sufficient in this case also to
discourage a continuance of work.
When the revival in quartz mining
iinally began to affect even sleepy San
Andreas a year or so ago, the Gottschalk
mine was one of the first secured by East
ern capitalists and work was begun and
prosecuted vigorously on a new shaft
which was sunk 190 feet, and the big white
dump is a monument to the good judg
ment of those who had a bond on the
mine, for it is all composed of pay ore; or
ii is a monument to their folly, for they
couldn't keep what they had found. The
men with money for some reason failed to
come forward at the expiration of the
bond and the work done all reverted to
the benefit of the owner of the mine.
The new shaft was sunk between 500 and
600 feet from the old, and as there is a
strong vein at the bottom of both shafts
of pay ore, and pay ore from the grassroots
down in both shaft?, and as the vein is
larger and richer at the bottom of
both shafts than on the surface, the prob
abilities of a good mine seem very natter
ing. A continuation of the old shaft down
to the 200 level and a ilrift connecting the
two shafts at that level would prove
whether the intervening ground is all a
part of the pay chute. Should such be the
case a permanent paying mine would seem
to be assured.
Several years ago Judge Gottachalk sent
some of the ore from the old dump to Sun
francisco and had a mill test made of it,
and it went $4 !K> per ton in free gold and
60 cents in silver. The ore from the new
shaft is of a better grade, and the Judge
thinks all the ore taken from both shafts
will average at least $6 per ton in free gold.
In order to secure a good mill site and
frontage on the river twenty-four acresof
patented land has been purchased and
added to the claim, making fort3'-five acres
in the patented mining claim. The loca
tion is very favorable for tunneling from
the river, and water and power can readily
be ee cured. The new shaft is a finely tim
bered three-compartment snaft. aud, al
though no work has been done since July
1, there is but about twenty feet of water in
Ttie Spring Gulch Mining Company is a
close corporation, composed principally of
Oakland men. George L. Nusbaumer,
County Surveyor of Alamr.da County for
Iwenty years, is president; A. M. Benham,
vice-president; Captain \V. E. Thomas,
secretary; J. S. White, general manager
and superintendent. The directorate in
cludes the above olricers and George Bar
beck and J. S. Inglis. W. H. Bailey and
L. W. Forsting, capitalists, are also among
tho principal shareholders. Their princi
pal claim is known as the Edna mine.
The claim of this company comprises
160 acres of land about two miles north of
San Andreas, and the superintendent
claims that at least two of the main mother
lode veins run diagonally through the
ranch. There is also a gravel channel
not entirely worked out. It was while
hydraulicking in Spring Gulch that Mr.
White became impressed with the idea
that there was a quartz mine on the
place. He noticed that along the east side
of the gulch nearly all the gold was
bright, sharp quartz gold, while on the
west side it was round and smooth channel
gold. Tracing the quartz gold to the sum
mit of the hill, Mr. White was rewarded
by finding indications of a big ledge, and
further exploration satisfied him that he
had found the top of a chimney of pay ore
on one of the main veins of the mother
Two prospecting tunnels were run into
the hill from opposite sides. That on the
west side is ninety-four feet from the sur
face and sixty feet long, all in decomposed
quartz. The tunnel on the east side is 134
feet long, ami the last forty feet run
through a sort of rotten porphyry full of
small quartz stringers, the entire mass
averaging about $7 per ton. A winze was
sunk in this material sixty-five feet, and it
is richer on the bottom than at the level
of the tunnel. It can all be worked easily
with the pick, and the walls stand without
timbering. Mr. White is of the opinion
that at depth this will all concentrate into
a big and rich vein of quartz.
Having determined by his prospecting
the best place to sink a shaft Mr. White
started one about sixty feet east of the
footwall, calculating that At about 300 feet
vertical he will have passed through the
vein. At this level he will run drifts on
the footwall of the vein and determine the
character and quantity of the ore, and if
justified immediately erect a large mill
and begin crashing. Then a permanent
three-compartment working shaft will be
started still further east to cut the vein
1000 or 1200 feet deep.
At present the shaft is down 140 feet and
is being sunk three feet a day, working
three eight-hour shifts. About 'half of the
bottom of the shaft is in quartz and the
indications are that in ten or rifteen feet
more it will be all in quartz and continue
so to the footwall. The quartz prospects
finely and the slate is heavily mineralized.
The ore resembles very closely that of the
Utica, and Mr. White thinks he is on the
Utica or east ledge.
The millsite below the ledge ia perfect
for delivering the ore clear to the stamps
by gravity, and a ditch 3000 feet distant,
carrying GOO inches of water, is 230 feet
higher than the millsite, affording un
rivaled facilities for obtaining power. The
county road runs right by the mine. The
ranch is covered with oak and pine timber.
Natural springs afford abundant and de
There are numerous ledges cropping on
different pans of the ranch, as yet uit
prospected. On the north side of the hill
from the shaft ihere is a cropping fully 100
feet wide, the quartz bowlders being'cov
ered with moss, and apparently never hav
ing been struck by a hammer. Running
across the south forty acres is another
large vein, known as "the west vein, on
which little or nothing has vet been done.
The developments on the Edna mine are
fully as promising and of as much im
portance as those on the Thorpe. Hundreds
of tons of good pay ore are in signt, but
the company will not put up a mill until
they have thoroughly prospected the mine
and opened it up for production on a large
Their course in this respect receives
the commendation of all good miners.
About midway between San Andreas
and Angels, on the Copperopolis road,
Sheriff B. K. Thorn lias forty acres of
patented land, through which the main
footwall ledge of the mother lode belt
courses. Enough development has been
done to indicate. that this may become one
of the most important mines in Calaveras
County. The hanging wall of the ledge is
diorite and the footwall a black slate, with
a heavy gouge. The general characteristics
are said to be identical witn those of the
Gwin and Kennedy mines in Arnador.
Ben Johnson, the present superintendent
of the Illinois, was lormeriy a part owner
of the Kennedy mine and has worked for
years in that and other mines in the foot
wull belt in Arnador, and says he has seen
nothing elsewhere so favorable to a per
manent and paying mine asin the Illinois.
All the work so far done has been in pay
ore, and seems to insure a chimney at least
150 feet in length on the vein.
The peneral course of the vein is north
westerly and southeasterly. The vein dips
to the east, at an angle of about 55 degrees.
On the surface there ate boldoutcroppings,
prospecting well in the pan, and at the
bottom of the shaft the assay value of the
ore is said to be $10 a ton. There is an in
cline shaft 120 feet deep, following the
course of the vein. At the 100 level a drift
is being run south on the vein and is now
in between sixty and seventy feet. The
ore prospects well the entire length of this
drift. The vein varies in width, swelling
and pinching in the manner characteristic
of the footwall ledge, in places being six
feet wide and again contracting to a few
inches. The depth is not sufficient yet to
be below the surface disturbances, which
have twisted and contorted the upper
About 200 feet from the main shaft an
other shaft has been sunk on a large vein
which intersects the footwall vein some
hundred feet north of the main shaft. This
shaft waa in good ore all the way, and
shows six feet of quartz at the bottom. All
the material extracted has been piled up
as mill rock. A drift will probably be
started north from the main shaft to pros
pect the intersection of the two veins,
where in the natural order of things a
bonanza ought to be encountered. The
richest ore so far found on the surface was
in a shahow hole 150 feet south of the
shaft. A dozen pans of rock and dirt in
the intervening space showed rich pros
pects which at a low estimate would av
erage $10 per ton. It is safe to say there
are 2000 tons of ore in sight that would
mill from $8 to $10 per ton. In much of
the rock on the surface fine free gold can
be readily seen.
Sheriff Thome is desirous of securing a
partner with capital to sink a deep shaft
and put up a mill. He does not wish to
dispose of the entire mine, as he has held
it many years and believes firmly that it
is one of thegreat properties of the mother
lode. With the ore in sight he thinks a
ten-stamp mill would pay all expenses
until the mine was opened up to at least
the 500 level. The mine is right on the
county road, affording perfect facilities
for transportation. There is an abund
ance of woou, which can be delivered at
the mine for $2 50 per cord. Water for
milling and power can be obtained from
three or four sources at moderate cost,
either for direct application or through
electric transmission. The altitude ot the
mine is about 1200 feet and two railroad
surveys have been made close to it from
Valley Springs to Angels. It is about fif
teen miles to the railroad at Valley Springs.
The Donlan mine is a curiosity to per
sons not familiar with the mother lode.
There is a belt of stratified and blacky
slate, full of quartz seams, from fifty to
300 feet wide. The entire mass prospects
in free gold, in places barely affording a
profit in working, and again being rich
and running up the average. It is located
three n:ilea north of San Andreas, and was
worked for thirteen years by Mr. Donlan,
the ore being hauled a considerable dis
tance in cars and run through a four
stamp mill. The mine was bonded some
time ago by E. S. de Golyer and E. H.
Hackett, mining men from Salt Lake, and
they are actively at work improving the
property. They have begun the erection
of a 15-stamp mill, have dug a new ditch
tliree miies lone which will carry 250
inches of water, and will soon be ready to
begin crushing rock.
The claim comprises a full mining loca
tion, 1500x600 feet, and twenty acre*, addi
tional for millsite. The water is free, and
will be delivered at the mill under fifty

price paid for the mine was ?22, 125— 5">000
cash. A conservative estimate of the ore
in sight on the surface places it at 200,000
tons, and the probabilities are that the
best part of the mine will be found below.
There are numerous large stringers of
quartz in the vein material, some of them
approaching the dignity of regular veins,
and they all carry gold, some of the quartz
being high grade.
Messrs. DeGolyer and Hackett have also
bonded 200 acres adjoining their claim on
the north, on which is the Comet mine, a
continuation of their ore body. Mr. De
Golyer says Colorado men would be as
tounded at the opportunities lying idle
along the mother lode if they could be
brought out here and made to appreciate
them. Their attention is being rapidly
drawn this way, however, and when they
begin to take' hold the people here will
begin to appreciate the fact that they have
A short distance to the northeast of San
Andrea?, within the limits of the town
site, is the Fellowcraft or "Bodie"' mine.
The claim comprises 1500 by 300 feet, and
eight acres adjoining for a luillsite. In
early days the gulch below this mine was
famous for its richness, $100,000 being the
estimated amount taken out, every dollar
of it quartz gold. The hill above this
gulch is about 200 feet high, and there are
big and little croppings Irom the base to
the summit. There are prospect holes all
over the side of the hill, and many rich
pockets have been found. A good pros
pect can be obtained in the pan almost
anywhere, and a mill test of a hundred
tons made some years ago showed $1 per
ton in line gold, in addition to the pockets,
which were many and rich.
The indications are that at depth the
many stringers and feeders of quartz will
concentrate into a main vein,
H. Bodie, the former owner, recently
sold the property toB. H. West, acting for
himself and others. The price paid was
$6000, and the purchasers are thought to
have secured a great bargain. The mine
will probably be worked as a close corpora
Tho new owners have put a force of men
to work retimbering an old shaft and tun
nel, erecting hoisting works and grading
for a millsite. The tunnel is eighty feet
long and the shaft at the end of it down
seventy-five feet, or something over 100
feet from the surface. Crosscuttine has
been commenced from the bottom of this
shaft, and the main ledge will soon be en
countered. As far as developed this main
ledge is eight to ten feet wide.
A ten-stamp mill has been purchased
and will be crushing rock as soon as the
mine is put in a condition to produce ore
and the mill erected. The mill will get its
water and power from the Treat ditch,
there being a fall of 200 feet from the ditch
to the mill. The water will be brought to
the mill through 1700 feet of iron pipe.
When everything is in working order and
the mill running quite a large force of men
will be employed, helping materially busi
ness of all kinds in San Andreas.
The Everlasting mine is located abont
three-quarters of a mile north of San An
dreas, and includes 3000 feet of patented
ground. It is said to be oq the west or
iiwin ledge of the mother lode. There
have been no developments below the
water level, but it has produced some won
derfully rich rock. It has been recently
bonded to Philipp Deidesheimer, a well
known San Francisco mining man, and a
force of men will be immediately put to
work doing some preliminary prospecting
until the location of the permanent worK
ing shaft is determined upon.
Another property bonded by Mr.
Deidesheimer is the Unexpected, compris
ing 4500 feet in close proximity to the
• win mine. The work of development
on this mine is expected to begin some
time this month. Mr. Deidesheimer is
also looking at several other properties in
Calaveras County with a view to securing
them for capitalists. A. J. Brooks.

WAR AMONG OLYMPICS.
The Boxers Refused to Punch
Unless Extra Tickets
Directors Held a Special Meeting
and Made Some Satisfactory
There ia trouble brewing among the
boxers of the different clubs who had en
tered for the special match contests at the
Olympic Club on Tuesday evening next.
The superintendent was completely dum
foundcd yesterday when a squad of box
ing athletes appeared before him and de
manded extra tickets for their friends.
The present rules of the club allow each of
the boxers two tickets; but it appears that
the allowance was not satisfactory, and
the leaders of the strikers demanded an
extra supply. In fact, nothing less than
five tickets per man would prove satisfac
tory. A director explained to the men of
muscle the rules of the club relative to the
disposition of complimentary tickets, but
the boxers refused to listen to argument,
and nothing less than four tickets to each
boxer would finally satisfy their wishes.
The upshot of the affair was that a
special meeting of the directors was called
to adjust the differences and to settle a
question of much importance to the club
at this late hour.
The directors, after a very long discus
sion on matters pugilistic, made overtures
to the boxers, which were acceptable to a
majority of them. There were, however,
some of the boys who would not consent
to anything les-s than the original demand.
Smith alias Young Corbett was one of
the high kickers, according to a director,
and his place will be filled to-morrow by
another boxer named Bushnell, who will
probably give a eood account of himself.
The boxers have a very different story to
that which was told by the directors.
They contend that they'are, at least, en
titled to four tickets. In previous tourna
ments held at the Olympic Club the
directors did not hesitate to give the fistic
actors four tickets, which the officers of
the club considered they were entitled to.
The new board of directors has taken a
very different view of the matter, so far as
favoring boxers with tickets, and instead
of allowing the principals four, tickets as
has been customarv, it has cut the number
down to two to each man.
Considering that the prizes are com
paratively insignificant — that is, so far as
boxing bouts are concerned, the general
ooinion of club members i3 thai the boxers
are fairly entitled to four tickets each.
However, the question of fisticuffs has
come to an issue, and most of the promi
nent boxers state positively that this will
be the last time that they will appear in
the Olympic Club in match contests
under the administration of the present
board. Judses and referee have not yet
been appointed, and, as there are none of
the members anxious to serve, the direc
tors wjuld act wisely to take the matter
into their own hands, so as to prevent a
possible error in the last hour.

President Adolph B. Spreckels of the
Pacific Coast Jockey Club, when seen last
evening regarding the report in the Sunday
papers to the effect that the new track
would not open until the 16th of next
month on account of a non-completion of
the buildings, etc., denied that such was
the case, but stated that as the Pacific

the intention of the Pacific Coast Jockey

it advisable to open for a week and then

LAST CRICKET CUP GAMES.
; The Bohemians Won the Second Place
From the Pacific Club at
The result of the Pacific vs. Bohemia
| cricket match at Golden Gate yesterday
was in favor of the former club by 24 runs
on the first inning. This decides the po
sition for second place in the associated
clubs' contest for the Hunter-Harrison cup.
The defeated team was short a man and
the victors were unusually strong. In
spite of these facts an interesting game was
put up. The full score:
