PFAU HITS IT RICH
Rock Island Man Who Leaves City a
Few Years Ago Broke lleturns
President of Gold Mining Co.
SAYS WILL BE WORTH MILLION
Says Arizona Property, of Which He
is a Third Owner, Will Yield
The career of Ix?e C. Pfau, since
leaving Rock Island four years ago
virtually penniless, reads like a fairy
Today he returned to the city a third
owner in an Arizona gold mine that
he says has an assured yield of not a
dollar short of $30,000,000.
He is president of the Pfau Gold
Mining company, with headquarters at
Cincinnati. Last week he sold for
$125,000 a strip of property adjoining
that on which his mine is located.
Nineteen months ago he purchased it
for $1.70(. He had not completed the
payments on it when he made the

pocket two chunks of the yellow ore
taken from his mine. One is worth
$150 and the other $350. He says he

his name to a check good for a cool
Offer! OI.l Ho.n Job.
He brought his wife, who was Miss
Mamie Brennan of this city, with him
for a visit with her relatives. She
will remain a month. The busy hus
band leaves tomorrow for the west. He
will go as far as California to see an
engineer under whom he worked with
the forces of the upper Mississippi
river engineer corps here. He will
offer him a job as superintending engi
neer at the gold mine out near Pres
cott. Mr. Pfau says he was his friend,
and he knows there is no better engi
neer in the country. His name is Sis
sion. He has a tine position in San
Francisco. He was wired an offer, and
his employers doubled his salary. Mr.
?fau says he allows they will have to
come a few times more before thev
top the size of the pay envelope Sis-
siou will receive if he comes with him.
I'hvm I nclf Johnny 1'onr for One.
One of tho first to receive a call
from Mr. Pfau today was Johnny
Jones, the second hand man. When
he was leaving the city a few years
back he did not have a dollar. Ho con
fided his predicament to Jones. John
ny took a chance and advanced him
2i. Today Pfau paid him $S0.
"I dislike to talk about myself." said
Mr. Pfau. "I do not want to boast of
riches, either, for luck night turn on
me any day. But 1 feel reasonably
safe. It was simply a case of taking
;i chance with me. When I acquired
the land on which our mine is situated
knew there was gold (here, but never
lreamed that it was in the proportions
that later investigations have proven.
'Leading men of Cincinnati backed
me. I took them to the ground and
showed them what 1 had run into. I
sold nearly $2ou,0(0 worth of siock
myself in the city of Cincinnati.
Stock SrllH I.Ike Hot liken.
"We planned to sell $500,0011, but
quit at $350,mhi. Our plan was to
ake parties of prospective investors
to the mine. They saw for themselves.
They were not forced to go in on the
enterprise, but few backed out once
they saw what we had. It is a bo
nanza. We are digging gold now on a
small scale, but expect to be under full
operations before many months. We
have plenty of working capital, and
we know the gold is there. All we
have to do is to go aftr it.
"Politics? Yes. I dabbled a little in
he game while I was in Rock Island.
No more of it for me. I wasted some
of the best years of my life worrying
over the political candidate. He worst
ed me, but after a hard fight I am
starting to eome to the front again. I
expect to make my permanent home hi

Island as often as possible and se
