Deposits of Gold Known to Cn.roriil'i
Priests a Century A sr.
The discovery of gold in California
has recently called forth a good deal
of discussion and also an especially
interesting story from Captain W. IL
Thomos, president of the society of
California pioneers. Captain Thomes,
before he took up his permanent res
idence in Boston, spent many years
in California, and is ' very much in
terested in the early history of the
gold discoveries, 6ays the Chicago
Herald. He sayS:
"I am perfectly satisfied that the
presence of gold in that region was
known to the priests in the very
earliest times. The priests, who
were the first pioneers, were a pas
toral people. As missionaries they
gained a wonderful influence over
the native Indians, and gradually
flooded the country with great herds
of sheep and cattle that roamed over
ranges thousands of acres in extent
These herds the Indians tendod, and
it was, therefore, the policy of the
priests to keep the Indians in subjec
tion. Every priest had some practical
trade which enabled him to utilize
the labor of his converts building
missions and constructing public
works. Near San Bernardino there
are still remains of an aqueduct that
brought the water for ten miles
through the hills, so that it would
spout up in the public courtyard, and
supplied the people of the town.
That aqueduct was made of small
stones, laid in a cement that is to-day
as hard as granite harder than any
cement that is now known.
Hie priests brought With them
from Spain grape vines and orange
trees, and they sought to bring peace
and plenty to the new land. They
were wise, longheaded men, and
must have known of the existence of
gold, but they knew also the averi
ciousncss of the Spanish people.
They reasoned that if the presence of
the yellow metal should become
known in Spain, liordes of greedy ad
venturers would rush in, robbing,
killing and ravishing; their peaceful
relations with the Indians would be
broken off, the great herds would be
scattered and the supremacy of the
priests themselves would be lost.
This supremacy was at ite highest in
1765, woen from the missions at San
Diego a chain of twenty-four mis
sions was extended northward.
Juniporo Sera was priest-president of
all the missions in California, and
was an intelligent, persevering, en
terprising man. lie was not only in
strumental in founding mission after
mission, but he added to the herds
thousands of sheep and cattle. I
have been six times to California and
havo talked with priests of all na
tionalities. Mexican, Spanish, Irish
American, and I am confident from
what they say that .Tumpero Sera
knew about the gold; but he was a
singular character, and ruled with a
hand of steeL so that gold was a
word that no one dared to utter. He
had the history of Peru and other
countries in his mind, and he kdew
that an influx of gold hunters meant
terror and destruction, and the fail
uro of aU his great plans."
