Dlinilan, n mining engineer, !''H-' who baa been familiar with every mining camp Kali1 ! Colorado, wont to Klilorn to examine a claim fxS for a friend who contemplate Ita purchase. Ho tniijnii spent two montha examining tho formation, Sfj.lJjL and finally located a claim for hlmself.the second (JfU? one located In tho district. Nothing waa dons Mill' on c'im 'or 'onr years or more, when Mr. ffi.JJh OIlQUan returned, built hlmielf n cabin, tho 1099 drat on tho present town alto, and became tha JH'SI oldest permanent settler. This waa tho begin- Vflflj Blng nf tbe town which, within tho ooBt few iBffflj , months, has gmwn to he the most important I II ' among tha new camps of Uouldcr, Gilpin, and Win Clear Creek counties. Mr. (lllnllan. after two jlBx Tears' hunt labor, met with his run aril In a ells- HEH covcry which haa already set tho mining world BbH, wild. While for a cnrlpat thoro haa been a HB. iteady Influx of populu Ion, It Is only within iBbV ' tho paat fow montha that thero haa been any. HH thing lllo a rush Into the new tamp. Fight HflH coaches nrn now running regularly from lloul- der connecting with tho trains from Denrcr, XBBJ and every coach Is loaded to Its full capacity. AVflJ while tho lit cry stables of Uouldcr huvo been J' taxed to thoir limit to provide prirnte yBH. convorane.es. On Tuesday of last week forty Hf pacsengcrs arrlred in tho camp. Tho follow- Hr '"), day fifty ramo in on stages. For tho past BH thirty days tho arrivals hare luoragcd twenty , a day. Tho result of this is thnt the camp now KV' baa 1.200 to l.HOO Inhnbltnnts. thero aro about kBH- 200 lioiibcs, and 40 to 50 uiuro In course of con- hVJ Itructlon, with new ones being started every VH? day, and tbo demand for room Is nev or satisfied. r'"' Four sawmills aro In operation, nnd are unable . to satisfy tho domnnd for lumber. Manr teams Kpji are hauling lumber from Uouldor, and every HBjr man In tho camp who can handle a saw or ham- glffH; mer Is kept In constant employment. If IjH, A t Eldora tbo olns. as far aa they ha re been IflMj uncovered, aro true Assure. Like the mineral KV veins In all permanent district", they cross tha Bjifl geological strata with well defined walla and the BBJ '' accepted Indications of permanency. The HH i ralues are mainly gold. A llttlelsllvcr appears BBM out of compliment to near by Caribou, and In Br some of tho mines tho copper yields as high as BM" S3 Mr cent' BJ9J Up to dato the number of locutions In tho dls- WSi' trlct Is ahout 500. Prospectors are decidedly BL-BJJ active, and neither high wind nor snow can jH kefP them from tbe mountains. Tho ciamln- BBJl ing expert from Denver, Colorado Springs, VB'.j Cripple Creek, Leadvillo, and "the States" is HBJ? tn evidence and, so far as known, there is not BjBj-i a diasenting opinion ns to the permanency of tho IE camp. IBf Eldora proper covers sixty squaro mllos. Bl a Measured from cost to west, tbo district is BS '" milea long, and from north to south It ia six IBf miles Tidr. To Caribou, the silver camp and tha H scene of the Chaffee bonanza of 87'J, the dln BJl tance Is only 2i miles due north. Ono and n Bi nalf miles south is tho Gilpin county line, and BHfr near this are the Perlgo and Gold Dirt mines, BBa. famous twenty ears ngo for their masslvo B H output of the yellow metal. Tbe Terlgo placers BBJy furnished gold worth $19 an ounce from tho HJr BTarel.

Tho new gold camp is in what is St known as tho great sulphide belt, which ex- tends through Clear Creek, Gilpin, and iloulder s counties, from Idaho Springs to Ward, along Bj4 which are some of tho most famous gold mines jH3i In Colorado. MmX The ores of tbe district prctent omo peculiar BJ characteristics. A. L. Toniblln, wlio bos been $ engaged in assaying thero for sot urul months ml.

Tho most rcmarkablo frnture, how eer, 5 i the mixture of tellurium and sulphides in 1 nearly every oin in tho district. Some rich tellurium ores are Uilckly sprinkled with sui- BJr phides of iron and copper, while solid veins, np- .$ parently all sulphide, are found to bo full of fljft particles of tellurium. fl jjj, Another peculiarity ia tho phcnomenul values Jf found In tho sulphides. Ores have been taken BJtr out from several properties which run as hifh BM twenty ounces of gold to tho ton, and In ono Instanco a return was mado of oec $t00assav BJ Talue.

The name of the man who sent an anonymous letter to the papers on Saturday, in which it was stated that tho Church of the Btrangors "it rent by discord, dissension, dissatisfaction, con tentlon, secession and separation," has not been revealed. "There is no row in tho Church of the Stran gers," said a member yostcrday. "Everything Is PcacofuL Thero aro no dissensions, seces sions, or separations. A majority of tho mem bora of tho church docldod to buy a bouso of worship uptown. A minority of tho congrega tion was against such a proposition, Thoy re fused to go uptown to worship, and, what's more, they won't go up there. The minority didn't llko tho methods by which a majority i TOto on tho proposition to movo uptown was ob tained, thoy don't llko tboso methods any hotter now, and they don't proposo to appear to ap prove of them by worshipping In tho now churoh. But it must bo understood that there are no dissensions or secessions in tho Church ot tho Strangers." Whatevor the troublo ln the church may bo ealled.lt originated in changing tho plaoe ot worship from 200 Morcor streot, whoro the lato Dr. Deems preached so long, to 300 West Fifty seventh streot. the edifice owned by tho Central Congregational Church, of which tho Iter. Dr. William Lloyd was tho pastor. It seems that the ground on which the old Church of tho Strangers stnnds is owned by tho corporation of the Sailors' Snug Harbor. An annual ground rent or 81,800 has been paid by tho church. The leaso of the ground expires on May 1. The Snug Harbor people notified the truateos or the church some time ago that, on and after May 1, 1803. tbe rent would bo $8,000 a year. It did not take the trustees long to dccldo that the church couldn't afford to pay such a rent. They so reported to the congregation, and tbe congregation Instructed the trustcos to look for a new house ot worship. It was found that tho property of the Ctn trnl Congregational Church and that of the First Reformed Presentation Church at 123 Wost Twelfth street woro for sale. The prices wero about tbe same. Tho trus tees reported ln favor of tho Centra! Congrega tional property. A meeting of tbe congregation was called nbout the middle or last November to voto upon the question of buying tho Central Congrega tional Church. It was stated that tho property would cost $85,000. which Included a mortgago of $45,000. The vote stood sevonty-two for to sevonty-two against. No effort wns mado on tho part of the pastor, tho Rev. Daniel Aaa Blackburn, to lntluenco tho voto ono way or another. After tho vote was announced it was practically decided to givo up Iho proioct of moving uptown, since, it was concluded. In a matter like that, with the vote a tie. tho wishes of one side should bo rcspectod as much as those of the other. The question of moving was not rovlvcd until a meeting of the congregation, held on Doc. 15. When they got to tbe meeting many of the con gregation wero surprised when Informed that I the meeting bad been callod for tbe purpose of reconsidering the vote on tho question of buj- I ing tno uentrai uongregallonal nroperty. A man who has been a member of tbe Church of the Strangers for twenty-thrco years gave the following description, yesterday afternoon, of the meeting of Dec. 15: "The meeting was quite different from tho ono in November. Among thoao present wero persons who hadn't boon seen in tbo Church of the Strangers in five years. Whethor they had kept up their contributions during that time I can t say. It is fair to suppose, however, that when a man doesn't attend n church for live years he hasn't kept on contributing to that church during that time. When I expressed surprise. at seeing some of those persons thero I etai told that they bad come only at Iho ourn eat solicitation of Mr. Blackburn. Then I found that our pastor had been carrying on an ncllve campaign among tho congregation to se cure votes in favor of tho purchase of the Central Congregational property. A number of pretty warm speeches wero made for and against tho proposition. Ono of the members took the plutform tospoak against tho project. In tho course of his speech ho turned to Mr. Blackburn nnd asked him point blank If he thought It dignified and proper for a pastor to try to influence his congregation ln a matter like that under discussion, and reminded Mr. Blackburn that his conduct then was very different from bis conduct before tho November meeting. Tbe pastor follow ed ln a apecch justi fying his action. Then a voto w as taken which I resulted In 144 persona voting In favor of buy ing the property to 44 against lu "A ahort time after that, on Jan. 20. 1 think It waa, a letter, aigned by a largo number of tho members of the congregation who wore not in favor of moving uptown, wns sent out inviting all the members of tbe church to attend what was called a mid-week prajcr meeting, to be held every Thursday night In tbo First Re formed Presbv terlan Church, in Twelfth streot. Thursday night wns aelected sons not to Inter fere with the regular prajer meeting of tho church, which is held on Friday evening. Th"so prayer meetings have been largely attended. hather a now church will grow out of them remains to bo seen. Tbe proposition hns been discussed to somo oxtent. At ever) ono of our prayer meetings wo pray for the church up town, and we want it understood that thero is no row and no secession." JOINB THE CUVRCU OF ENOEANIi. The Late Or.
