Harry Cobb Disappears
Harry Cobb, who was arrested and
convicted by the local court for aban
doning his children, several months
ago, and was allowed his freedom on
a probation order of- the court, left
Jackson last week, and has not been
heard from since. Cobb's orders were
not to leave the county, and in his so
doing, he has become liable to
Bevere punishment if captured, as his
crime is a felony and carries a state
prison penalty as punishment. Cobb
continually complained that he could
not meet the obligations imposed
upon him by the court, because as he
asserted, the town could not furnish
him with' sufficient employment at his
trade, which is that of painting.
However, the real cause of the man's
downfall is his inability to keep from
imbibing in drink.
Groceryman on Trip
Peter L. Cassinelli, a local grocery
man of this city, and his wife, left

The store is left under the manage
ment of Frank Giannini, the genial
and obliging little clerk.

Davis Making Good
The regular republican candidate
for the office of sheriff, John S.
Davis, is reported to be doing good
work in and about Volcano, in the
way of making dependable friends
and acquaintances in that locality.
Davis was comparatively unknown in
that section of ..the county prior to the
announcement of his candidacy for
sheriff, but late reports are to the
effect that all those who meet Davis
iike him, and many promise to sup
port him next month.
New Street Crossing
A new culvert and cement sidewalk
was laid on Main street at the foot of
Court street this week. The. old cul
vert was clogged with mud and the
timbers forming the viaduct were de
cayed, making it a dangerous foot
trap for horses.
The old crossing at this junction was
about the most miserable in the city,
although it was about the most used.

Elopers In Trouble
Yesterday morning about 10 a. m.
Chris Bakovich, who is proprietor of a
boarding house at Jackson Gate,
eloped with Miss Sophie Milyovich,
tho 15 year old neice of John Milyo
vich, who resides on Broadway.
The pair secured a team at Green &
Ratto's livery stable, and drove to
lone, expecting to be able to connect
with the noon train for Gait. When
they arrived in lone, they found the
train had left, and plans were then
made to leave lone at 4 p. m.
After putting up their team at the
lone livery, they phoned to the local
stables, informing them that they
would have their team returned by an
lone driver. This phone message
started a turmoil which resulted in
crushing the boat in which they had
planned to sail on life's sea of matri
John Milyovich, who is guardian of
the girl, up to this time had no know
ledge of the actions of his neice, and
when he learned of them by phone,
he immediately ordered Bakovich to
return with the girl, and wait until
she was of legitimate age to marry.
The reply came back that he would
bring his intended back to Jackson on
the evening train.
The lover, however, had no, inten
tion of giving up his prize so easily,
and when the 4 o'clock train left lone
for Gait, the pair were comfortably
seated in a coach bound, for the main
Milyovich was informed again by
phone of the departure of the couple,
and to prevent the elopers carrying
out their plans, orders were sent to
Gait ordering the arrest of Bakovich,
on complaint of Milyovich.
When the train pulled into Gait sta
tion, the pair were captured, and held
in custody, and will be returned to
Stevenot In City
F. G. Stevenot, republican candi
date for assembly, was in Jackson
yesterday, and will, visit during the
"next few days all the towns on the
lode, and also lone.* Owing to lack of
time he will be unable to visit a
number of smaller and outlying places,
as he has to make a trip to every
county in the district, which inclulcles
Alpine and Mono. Mr Stevenot is a
pleasant, genial, and intelligent
gentleman, well posted on matters
concerning Calaveras and the whole
district. The republicans are to be
congratulated upon having such a can
didate. We can recommend him as
worthy the support of every voter.
The members of Oro Fino Circle, at
a meeting on Wednesday evening last,
tendered their farewell greetings to
Mrs F. W. Parker, who on Monday
next, will leave Jackson to take up
her abode in Alameda county. A
suitable program was renderded, on
the occasion, and all present ex
pressed their wishes that happiness
and prosperity may follow the retiring
member to her new home. Mr Parker,
the night watchman, will also leave
for the new home, as their grown-up
family are located around the bay and
other points, in lucrative situations.
Fine Sample of Gold
H. D. Emerson, who carries with
him a degree of mystery, came into
posession of a certain amount of gold
leaf lately, which is pronounced ex
tremely fine gold by Langhorst, the
jeweler. Emerson refused to ' tell
where he obtained the metal, and says
his only purpose in bringing it to
Langhorst was to negotiate a sale.
County health officer. Dr. E. E. En

disease column also, with one case of
diptheria to her credit.
Back from Trip

which was the order to construct a
new Masonic temple in San Francisco.
Over Twelve Hundred

A Poor Policy.
Rumors drift to our ears occasionally
of very foolish and impolitic remarks
indulged in by some candidates,
whose better judgment becomes
clouded in the heat of passion, and the
overweening desire to continue in
office. The office seeker intimates
that he will "get even" on some who
are opposing his plans to hang on to
the emoluments of office. We do not
know whom such remarks are intended
for; probably they are Intended for all
who do not fall in with the aspira
tions of the speaker. As far as the
Ledger is concerned, this sort of talk
carries no weight whatever, and it is
unlikely to have any other effect upon
others except to insure the defeat of
those who have so little respect for
the rights of free American citizens as
to indulge in such threats. We have
been accustomed to this sort of lan
guage for many years. It is notorious
that the controling clique have done,
and are still doing all in their power to
"get even" with the Ledger. They
would do the same with any one who
declines to tall in with tbeir methods.
We, However, prefer to follow the
dictates of our own judgment, and do
our duty as we see it, than to seek
the indorsement of all such self-seek
ing politicians by sacrificing our
ideas of right.

Interesting Accounts of
/Mines Located In
This quartz mine is located near
Middle Bar, three miles south of
Jackson. It has not been operated for
nearly twenty years. It is considered
a very promising property. Some very
good ore was encountered when it was
operated last. Owing to the neces
sity of sinking, and the owners having
other interests considered more im
portant at that time, the mine was
closed down, but accurate maps show
ing all the underground workings were
made, for information when the time
arrived for reopening.
In 18(58 the mine was operated by J.
R. Hardenburg, from whom it derived
its name. The shaft was sunk and the
property prosected to the depth of 80
feet, and a twenty stamp mill was
kept running on ore from this claim.
Mining was very different in those
days to what it is now, and it required
what would now be called high grade
ore to yield a profit. After running
some years it was closed down, and re
mained idle for 20 years, or until re
opened by C. D. Lane, who prospected
several hundred feet below the old
workings. It is considered on the main
gold bearing vein of the mother , lode,
and there is every reason to believe^
that with a thorough prospecting it
will take its place among the paying
mine* of tho county. In this event, it
means much for Jackson, as the vast
mineral bearing stretch from Jackson
to the Mokelumne river — a distance of
four miles is a comparatively un
touched territory as far as mineral ex
ploration is concerned. It is rich is
small seams and pockets, which have
been worked continuously, more pr
less, since early time, "but the main
ore body is comparatively untouched.
This mine is running smoothly, the
forty stamp mill being kept steadily
at work, and the stockholders are re
ceiving dividends of two cents per
share regularly every month. The
present depth of the mine is 1650 feet,
which is not deep for mother lode
mining. It is the intention to com
mence sinking soon, and the shaft will
be carried down 300 feet deeper. Pre
parations for sinking are now being
This company paid its usual dividend
of five cents per share to its stock
holders on the 15th. The addition of
twenty stamps to the mill is waiting
on the carpenters and millwrights. Mr
Schultz, who has charge of the con
struction work, is just finishing up at
the South Eurkea, and thereafter
will devote his entire attention to the
Bunker Hill addition.
Laid to Final Rest
Mrs Hamby, wife of James Hamby
of San Francisco, passed away at the
home of her sister, Mrs Charles Koeh
ler of this city on Sunday evening last.
Mrs Hamby was the daughter of Mr
and Mrs George Merkel of Jackson,
and was 33 years of age. She had
been in ill health for several months,
and on the ninth of this month gave
birth to a boy, which still lives, an
which will be cared for and raised by
The remains were interred in the
protestant local cemetery on Tudesday
last, Rev. J. 0. Duncan, officiating.
Will Repair Church
Much needed repairs übout the pro
perty at the Jackson church were com
menced this week, and are expected to
be completed before inclement weather
sets in. The roof of the structure in
various places was in bad condition,
and as a result the interior of the
church is in a most deplorable condi
tion. This will all be fixed up and put
in a presentable condition.
Stork on the Job
Word has reached Jackson that Dr.
L. E. Phillips, who practiced medicine
and surgery in this city for about six
years, was presented with a baby boy
by his wife on the seventh of this
month at their home in Palo Alto.
Both mother and child are reported to
be doing finely.
