New Mining" Company.
The Del Monte Mining and Milling
Company was Incorporated this week,
with directors as follows: ..Cornelius
.O'Neill, Bernard .O'Neill,. \Truman
-Schenck, F. A. Voorheis,. George I.
The Del Monte group of mines are
located in the Railroad Flat Mining
District in Calaveras county some 20
. mile* from Jackson. The ' group con
sists of the "Del Monte," or old "Prus
■ sian Hill" mine, the "Mt. Pleasant," a
west extension of the Del Monte, the
• ."Calaveras View," the "Pina Vita,"
J the "Hazzard,"'the "Monte Del,", and
I the Del Monte mill site, In all about
- 1 120 acres.
Chronicle: A recent crushing in
Jos. Heinsdorff 's mill of some loose
boulders gathered on the side of Cen
tral Hill channel, yielded $27 per ton.
How far these boulders journeyed with
. the tide in the southerly flow for ' the
ages passed ere a resting-p lace was
/ found, Is a matter yet to bo settled. ' ;
I The fame of the old Central Hill is
not extinguished,' but rests- for; the
revelation yet to be made of the whys
and wherefores of its escapade west
ward in the mysterious depths toward
Six Mile. A company con templates'
the purchase of the old river bed and a
bunt for the lost portion.
Progress on the DeLay tunnel is
most excellent. Several hundred feet
have yet to be run ere the May Day
lode, the terminal point, will be pierced.
Over 1200 feet of a tunnel have t been
credited to the diligent workers, and it
is to be hoped that reward will be
meted out to the company for ; the en
ergetic manner of carrying out the
great undertaking. : ' ;
At the French Union mine in Poor
man's Gulch, work is being carried on
steadily though not on a very extensive
scale, only four men being employed.
The mill is kept running about two or
three days in the week on gravel taken
from the east rim of the channel at a
depth of 1700 feet from - the mouth of
the tunnel. ■ At that point the gravel
Is about six feet in thickness' and; it is
all new ground. The gravel prospects
well and we understand the yield from
the millings is very satisfactory. The
property, which is under the superin
tendency of Frank Bernardi, Is being
worked in a careful and economical
Prospect: The Ford mill started up
Tuesday forenoon, this week, crushing
rock from the mine*. The mill will be
in charge of H. C. Tyler and John Mc^
- Quig, two thoroughly experienced mill
- men and we understand that rock from
the various levels will be thoroughly
tested. The rock taken out lately has
been looking much better, and it is ex
pected that good. results will be shown.
' 'Independent: The stamps are. again
dropping at the Kanaka mine, and it is
to be hoped that the mine will be open
ed up and keep the mill pounding rich
The mill at the Mt. Jefferson Is run
ning day and night and no doubt that
the mine will show Its richness in the
■ clean-ups. * ■• ■ '['■:' ■ , : :'.- : ' /
The Longfellow mine put on a force of
men last Monday and work has begun
ftgain in full blast.
The Rhode Island mine is putting up
a new hoisting - works, and .will soon
commence to open up the mine in first
class shape, and no doubt the mine will
turn out all right.
New Era: The Croesus is still lying
idle though not from lack of merit on
the mine's part. All that stands in the
way of resumption is a private row
among the owners, one of whom Is re
ported so stubborn, that he won't ac
knowledge black Isn't white. "
Several sales of East Belt mining
property have been made the past
week. One carried with it a- heavy
cash payment, though for reasons best
known to those directly interested we
have been requested not to publish de
tails of facts and figures in this num

A little fly possessed of great zeal and
a piercing bill, and unceasing activity
day and night, is just now the bane of

some instances have actually stampeded
from the range.

A Rmart Fellow.
Tuesday a brilliant chap, represent
ing an astute firm of Sacramento, ar
rived here en route to Mokelumne Hill
where he intended to transact business
with a person who has been dead about
two years. The expense of the trip is
fully $30. The shrewd firm and keen
representative could have ascertained
the facts by telephone for 50 cents and
saved $29.50. The 'young man did not
complete the journ.ey, turning back
from this point, having pumped
enough mountain air into his system to
give him the requisite business vim to
inquire about the Mokelumne Hill per
son he had made the expensive journey
to see. Now all this is'preliminary to
the real gist of the stftry. This cute
representative of a outer firm, took ex
press pains to state that a person who
would bury himself in a small town like
Jackson would know less every~year
he remained here, - and much more
nonsense of the same sort. In fact he
relieved himself, being aided and
abetted by another stranger of equal
brilliancy, of considerable worthless
wind. If he and his firm represent the
average shrewdness of the large valley
towns, give us the common sense of
common mining camps by heavy odds.

The reception of delegates to the
National Republican Convention at
Philadelphia last Sunday^gave the
staid old Sunday-observing ' Quaker
City a jolt toward hades, the like of
which was never experienced before in
all its history. The oheering, horn
blowing, bomb-bursting, ear-splitting
din drowned the church bells and the
Lord's day was turned over to pande
monium and politicians. All night
long and all day Monday and up to
12:36 p. m. Tuesday the racket was
At 12:36 precisely, Tuesday, June 19,
the Convention was called to order by
Hon. M. A. Hanna, Chairman of the
National Republican Committee. At
12:53 p. m. Chairman Hanna designat
ed Hon.\E. C. Wolcott as temporary
chairman, and thus was opened, on the
forty-fourth anniversary of the day on
which General John C. Fremont was
nominated by the first Republican Con
vention, held in Music Fund Hall on
Locust street, Philadelphia, the Na
tienal Convention of 1900.
There amid memories of half a cen
tury, in the presence of men who saw
the sanguinary clouds He across the
sunrise di the party, the Republicans
met in the high tide of their glory 1 to
name their national candidate and
enunciate the platform for the coming

never clashed ■ with more vigor than
they did there that night. Amid the
thousands of warriors there is but one
choice for leader. His face is engraved
upon banners and buttons; it is framed
in flowers and in ivy on the walls; It
adorns the windows of the shops and
looks down upon the swarming crowds
from every conspicuous place. McKin
ley again will lead the gray beards and
the young men in the November bat
tle. Banners are dipped before his por
trait and the mention of his name
arouses enthusiasm. When Senator
Foraker concluded hy peroration in
the convention on' Wednesday, a storm
wild and tempestuous, shook the great
It was not a riotous convention. There
were no wild outbursts of enthusiasm
from the frenzied partisans of rival
candidates; no entrance of delegations
with banners to set the multitudes
cheering; no fierce skirmishing and
clashing ' of candidate managers over
rules of procedure and contesting dele
gations. The chieftain in the coming
battle had already been selected by the
unanimous vote of the Republicans of
the country. The man who had stood
at the helm of the ship of State for
four years was their unbroken choice.
The platform was the record of his Ad
ministration. The only question re
maining for the convention to decide
was the Vice-Presidency, and It was
not a sufficient bone of contention to
produce the tumult which usually at
tend the assembling of a national con
Many notable groups could be seen
among the delegates. Immediately in
front sat Senator Fairbanks of Indiana
with Governor Mount of that State
just behind him. Governor Shaw of
lowa ran over to greet his executive
colleague, and say that Dolliver's flag
was still flying. Across the aisle Sen
ator Platt waited, while Cornelius N.
Bliss was earnestly assuring Mr. Payne
as to some controverted point. Mr.
Odell sat with Mr. Quigg, and all the
New Yorkers kept turning their heads
to see when that broad-brimmed som
brero made its appearance. Governor
Taylor of Kentucky came in with Gov
ernor Bradley of that State. Just
across was Senator Foraker, with his
hair tossed, looking as though he bad
been having hard conferences, while
General Grosvenor paced the aisles and
Senator Allison of lowa was among
earlier arrivals. Among the other
members of the Senate on the stage
were Hawley of Connecticut, Burrows
of Michigan, Deboe of Kentucky, Cul
lom of Illinois and Shoup of Idaho.
Senator Lodge and Judge McCall
came In at the head of the Massachu
setts' delegation, and were greeted by
General Harry Bingham.
At noon, Thursday, William Mc-
Kinley was nominated for the office of
President of the United States by ac
clamation and at 2:02 p. m. of the
same day Theodore Roosevelt was
nominated for Vice-President. Roose
velt received 925 votes, one dele
gate refusing to vote. At each nomi
nation the applause of the vast audi
ence was fairly deafening, the Con
vention giving itself up to the wildest
demonstrations. All Philadelphia took
the furor and the city was one vast
noise all night. This (Friday) morning
the delegates and visitors are bidding
adieu to the Quaker City, every out
going train being crowded.
Next Sunday, at Fullen's Grove,
the Amador City and Jackson teams
will cross bats for $100 a side. Good
playing on both sides is expected. Big

The grand ball "given by Excelsior
Parlor, N. S. G. W., last Friday night
in honor of the delegates to the Grand
Parlor, N. D. G. W.; eclipsed anything
of the kind ever before attempted in
the county. The dancing " platform
was one hundred feet square and every
inch of space was needed to accommo
date the dancers.
Owing to the delay in finishing the
work of the Grand Parlor, the grand
march did not take place until eleven
o'clock, but it was a most superb affair
when it did materialize. Judge R. C.
Rust, Grand President of the Grand
Parlor N. S. G. W. and Mrs. Ema
Gett, Grand President of the Grand
Parlor N. D. G. W., led the brilliant
throng. Next to the leaders were C.
B. Arditto, President of Excelsior Par
lor No. 31, N. S. G. W. and Miss Daisy
V. Llttlefield, President of Ursula Par
lor No. 1, N. D. G. W., and then came
a gaily dressed multitude of ladies and
gentlemen until there was no space left
on which to turn. It was an inspiring
and pleasing sight, and one ' not often
seen In Interior towns, and probably
will not be seen here again In many
years to come, if ever. . .-.
The night ■ was ' rather cool for a
moonlight dance, but nevertheless the
attendance was large, and the dancing
continued until nearly five o'clock in
the morning, supper being served by
Ferdinand Mayer, in Love Hall, at
12:30 a. m.
Many costly gems and elegant ball
dresses were worn, especially by some
of the delegates, and the myriads of
electric lights threw ,a ' lustre on the
scene that was enchanting. The Jack
son Band furnished the music, and Mr.
Batchelder, a member of the band,
filled the difficult position of caller.
From opening to closing the ball was
a success, and reflects great credit on
those who had it in charge.

Made Entirely New.
An employee of the Standard Electric
Co., was placed in the custody of the
Sheriff last Sunday on account of his in
sane acts and expressions. His name is
John Dillon, but he says he has been
electrified and made entirely new and
that his name is now Gibson. His
hallucinations are many and varied.
One day he will be busy squeezing him
self into various shapes, oblong square
and round, peeked, pointed j and oval,
cone-shaped and flat. . The next day
he will pile up 1000 imaginary girls
who have been squeezed as flat and
round as pancakes. He gives each girl
a name as he lays her. tenderly on the
pile. During the night he swallows
streak after streak of lightening and
seems to relish the meal. He says
that electricity is only understood by
him and that if he wanted to |he could
melt the world In seven minutes.
