Experiment!! are being made in Butte county,
which so far liavc lieen successful, In thti
use of dredgers for working large trauta of
dry, low-grade gravel whli'h are not rich
enough to he hydraullcked. Prospecting these
deposit with steam drill Is also being tried.
A slx-loeli hole is drilled to bedrock, taking
out enough dirt for asay purposes by this
means at a fraction of the usual cost. With
the dredger gravel can lie worked at a cost
of about :i cents per cubic yard, and thus
low-grade deposits of gravel, of which there
are almost unlimited iitiuntltlee in this State,
may be profitably mined. Several of these
dredgers which are now being built In Butte
.county will cost iilmut S'Jft.0)0 eueh. and each
will handle about LtKl cubic yards of gravel

The Oneida mine, Amador county, has a
large ledge from which the first crushing of
100 tons yielded S4 per ton. The ore can be
mined and milled at u profit.
A very rich strike has been made in the
Gold Uujc mine at I'loeerville. El Dorado coun
ty. The report says a single pan yielded $100.
A rich chute has been uncovered In the Bon
net mine, which was worked some years ago
and yielded gold to the value of $75,000. Then
the lead was lost and the mine was abandoned.
The present owners, after some work, have
found the lead again. The rook mills from
$ to $100 per ton.
The Pennsylvania, at Grass Valley. Nevada
county, haa declared a dividend of 5 oents per
share.. Ten stamps are to be added to the
milling capacity. At the Texas mine, near
Nevada City, a seven-foot ledge of good value
has been uncovered at 250 feet and a twenty
stamp mil! Is to be built.
Sulphur deposits have been discovered In
Pan Diego county, about fifty miles from
Flowing Wells station, on the Southern Pacific
The larger part of the Old Boss and Mo
Cleary gravel mine at Trinity Centre. Trinity
county, has been sold to the McDonald Broth
ers of French Quleh and San Francisco for
40.000. The property consists of about
1,000 acres of river benches and ancient chan
nels. The average value of the gravel is good
and the total amount of gold contained has
been, estimated by experts at $10,000,000. A
million or more has bean taken out during
past years, and more recently the property
has been profltaby worked in a email war.
It la now to be developed on a large scale.The
water supply will be tripled and new giants,
flumes, pipe lines, sluloes.and elevators will be
among the improvements.
VtaoixiA Citt, Bept. 17. At Oolconda a
body of superior copper ore has been uncov
ered, and works have been erected which han
dle sixty tons of ore every ten hours, producing
four tons of matte. Two more furnaces are
being built and Oolconda promises to be soon
one of the big copper camps of the country.
The gross value of the ore taken out of the
De Lamar mine during the three months end
ing in June!was $117,610. land the present
net earnings of the property are said to ex
ceed $130,000 per month. Work has been be
gun to double the present 300-ton capacity.
8KATTt,c, Sept. 18. The Haber syndicate,

creased their working force to sixty, and are
constructing wagon roads, trails and camps
preparatory to development till winter. The
ore bodies give assurance of permanency and
in Republic illstriot the Republic mino Is
making a wonderful chewing of high-grade
ore that puzzles the experts. This ore is as
white as chalk, and apparently as barren of
precious metals. On the surface it assayed S'J
per ton gold, but it increased rapidly in value
aud now gives returns of from $100 to $200
per ton, and the ledge has widened to twenty
five feet. Although but a small amount of
work has been done, It is clulmed that over
$2,000,000 is In sight, and that amount of
Bogey has liecu ottered for t he property. At
present it is regarded us the largest mino in

Jroin six to twenty feet wide was discovered
along the beach, the ore averaging $10 free
gold and lfi iwr cent, copper. liln'overles of
this character are of nlmost dally occurrence.
The excitement over the Pine Creek placer
mines ha subsided somewhat, and business
lis settled down to n stead v gait. Thousands
of locations were made und a large number of
properties are being worked successfully, but
no astonishing discoveries are being made.
Bum. .Sept. 20. -Two good strikes are re
Ported on the proiartv ofthe Eclipse Mining

A few weeks ago the vein at the 300-foot
level lu the Overland mine was found badly
faulted, causing a stoppage of pumping and a
general reduction In the force. An explora

Hovohtow. Sept. 24. Never before In the
history of Lake Superior copper mining has
there been a time when so many men were
employed, such large profits earned and so
much new work under way. On Sept. 1,
1HW4, a trifle over 0.000 men were employed
by the Houghton county mines. On Sept. 1,
1808, nearly 10,500 men were employed by
the mines. On Sept. 1 four years ago tho
market value of the Houghton county mines
was approximately $40,000,000. while at the
present time It Is almost exactly $00,000,000.
having iiracti 'ally doubled in four years. The
imputation of the copper district I increasing
py leaps and bounds until Calumet, the most
populous town, now has nearly 40.000 souls,
making It the third largest mining camp in
the world and the second largest in the
Salt Laee. Sept. lit. Tho Morcur Company
is about to enlarge the dally capacity of Its
mill to 400 Ions.
It is reported that the guano deposits on
Gunnison Island. Great Salt Lake, have been

Dt'i.i'TH, Minn. Sept. 20 Since the resump
tion of work on th new railroad project from
Lake Superior westerly through Canadian
territory there has beeu a marked revival of
interest In the iron ore deposits of the Cana
dian country north of Lake Superior. These
deposits have been known in a general way
by Iron men for several years, but have been
entirely neglected on acoouut of their distance
from railroads. A month ago work began on
the Ontario and Rainy River Railroad, that
will connect the line now building from Winni
peg eastward with the old Port Arthur. Du
Iuth and Western, that reaches fifty miles
west from Lake Superior. Within the month
locations have been made of available out
crops and vein indications for thirty miles
along the Atlkokan and Mattnwan ore ranges,
near which the road Is expected to pass. In
dl?atlonssre that a new and enormous deposit
of Iron ore of high grade has here been found.
Guatmas, Sept 17. The Mexican Metallur
gical Company of San Luis Potosl and La
Plata Mining Company of Monterey have or
ganized the Chrysolite Mining Company, with
a capital of $500,000. and transferred to it
their holdings in the eight mines known as
th San Felipe group, in the Sierra Mad re
Mountains, near the terminus of the Monterey
Mineral Railroad. The new company pur
chased the interest held by J. A. Robertson
uud J. Rice In these properties, paying at the
rate of half a million dollars for the whole.
The Denver mine, owned by La Plata Com
pany, has been leased to the Chrysolite Com
pany for twenty years. The combined pro
perties cover 3i0 acres In the centre of the
most Important silver and lead mining district
In Mexico. Plans have been formed for work
on a large scale. A main tunuel will be driven
to traverse all the mines 3,200 feet below the
present work of the Denver mine. Modern
methods will be used In working this big con
solidation. There will be an electric plant,
telephoue lines, aerial cables and surfuce tram
ways. A ' Philadelphia company, working near
Maplmi, Durango, is completing a forty-ton
furnace tor smelting Its copper ore. The Ka
hlua Mining Company has bought Ave claims
in the district of Baucarl for $5,000 gold and
one-third of the stock of the company. The
Barranca mine at Ameca is turning out ore
that averages $2o and over in gold aud twenty
ounces of silver to the ton.
Seattle. Sept. 18. Rosslond Ti fairly ex

Wlilatl SoiiuiUtl-Nn Clue to Identity.
A Coney Island train on the Kings County
Elevated Railroad In Brooklyn struck and In
stantly killed a man and a woman In the Mal
bone streot tunnel, near Prospect Park, at 1 :20
o'clock yesterday afternoon. The bodies were
dragged a distance of fifty yards under the
engine before the train could be stopped and
were so mangled that Identification by anything
but the clothing that they wore would be Im
possible. Dp to a late hour last night neither
body had been Identified, although a score of
people had called at the Grant street police
station to see them.
The police are unable to determine whether
the couple committed suicide or were acci
dentally struck by the engine There were
circumstance which made the suicide theory
plausible, the most convincing ono being that
the man and woman were lying with their
bodies between the east and west tracks, with
their heads across the lmddo rail of the latter.
The tunnel is a comparatively light one during
the day time, and unless the man and woman
were drunk or asleep they could scarcely fall
to note the approaoh of the train. Yet
the engineer says that they never made
a move to get out of the way after he saw them.
Another circumstance which the police think
strengthens the suicide theory Is th fact that
there Is nothing on either body, not so much as
a mark on the clothing, which would give a
clue to the Identity of tho couple.
The Malbone street tunnel Is about aa long
as two ordinary elty blocks. A dozen yards
south of it is tho Prospect Park station of the
Coney Island branch of tho Kings County road.
During the daytime one can see twenty foet
ahead In the tunnel, Thcro is consider
able space between (he tracks and be
tween tho outside rails and the walls of
the tunnel. There Is n sign at either
end of tho tunnel warning people not to walk
through It, but for years this sign has been
disregarded, and people walking along the
tracks have gone on through the tunnol with
out hesitation. To go up and over Malbone
street to tho other side of the tunnel necessi
tates climbing up a steep hank, and then walk
ing several blocks around and down another
steep bank to reach the tracks again. Pedes
trians prefer tho chances of tho tunnel to going
over tills circuitous and somewhat difficult
Engineer George Kessell of 34 Wyona street
wa In charge of Engine 37, which drew the
Coney Island train leavlugthe Brooklyn Bridge
at 12:40 o'clock. Conductor Bernard Burns
was In charge of the train. The last stop be
fore Prospect Park was at tho Butler street
station. The train leaves Fultou street at
Franklin avenue and leaves the elevated struc
ture forthe tracks of the old Brighton Beach
Railroad after drawing out from the Dean
Engineer Kessell say that when he entered
the tunnel he was going at the usual rat of
speed. He had gone about 150 feet In the tun
nel when he made out two figures lying on tho
ground In the position already described. The
moment he saw them, he says, he pulled the
whistle cord and reversed the lever.
Neither figure moved, he says, and a second
or two later the engine struck them. He heard
no shriek, not a sound but the thud as the en
gine struck the bodies When the train came
to a standstill he Jumped from the engine and
joined Conductor Burn and the other train
hands. They oould make out the bodies under
the engine, but in the poor light oould not ex
tricate them. Two of the gatemen and several
Faengers went on through the tunnel to the
'rospeot Park station, where they secured
lanterns. At the same time they sent word to
the Grant street station for a patrol wagon.
After a half an hour's work the bodies were
taken out and then. Engineer Kessell says, he
knew for the first tlmo that one of the victims
was a woman. The man's head was almost
completely out off, but he was not much In
jured about the body. The woman's head was
crushed in aud her left arm and left leg wore
severed from the body. The remain were
put in the patrol wagon and taken to the sta
tion house. The man was about 42 years of
age, had light hair and light eomnlexlon. and
was 6 feetu inches tall. He wore a gray striped
sack coat, dark trousers, laee shoe, under
wear that wo rather ragged and a derby hat.
The woman wan about 40 year of age. 5 feet
4 Inches tall, had dark hair and wan quite
stout. She wore a lavender waist, a red and
black figured calico skirt, a white and black
straw sailor hat and button shoes.
After the bodies had been taken from the tun
nel the train resumed Its trfn to Coney Island,
in charge of the fireman. Kessell was arrested
and locked up in the Grant street station.
The police made every effort to find out who
the dead man and woman were, but without
avail. They corralled everybody In the vicinity
of Malbone street and made them look at tho
Imdles. but none was able to Identify either.
William Pascal, a popcorn vender, who hangs
around Malbone stroet, told the police that no
saw the man and woman entering the tunnol
about Ave minutes before the train camealong.
Ho had never seen either before, and dldn t
pay much attention to the couple, a he was ac
customed to seeing people walk into tho tun
nel. They were walking along the track when
he first saw them, nnd no his Information was
of little use as showing from where tho couple
Capt. Leavy of the Grant street station says
that there wus an odor of liquor about the man
nnd woman when the bodies were brought Into
the station house and he Is unite certain that
they had beeu drinking heavily.

Henjntntn Fox, Who Conducted n Foundry
In This City for Fitly Year.
Benjamin Fox, who died last Friday, was at
the time of his death the oldest living brass and
iron founder in this city. For more than fifty
year he had owned and personally conducted
the foundry on West Thirty-fourth street, be
yond Tenth avenue, which bears his name. It
was the same foundry all the time, but under
different aspects, for It began on a very small
scale whon Mr. Fox oame to this country from
England In 1847, being thon a young man of
23, and decided that there was a good opening
for a foundry on West Thirty-fourth street. At
that time there were openings for almost any
thing in that locality, the chief Industry being
the raising of weeds In unoccupied lot. There
wcro indication, however, that It wa to he a
growing business district, and the young
foundryman made no mistake in the selection
of his site.
Being himself a master workman, he we able
to pick out competent men to serve him. Boon
his business expanded beyond the limits of his
little building. He put on additions. Itwasno
use: the business filled the additions and de
manded more space. Then he built a new
building. A picture of this building taken In
1800 shows a locality characterized chiefly by
straggling wooden structure, in the midst of
which the foundry looks very substantial and
businesslike. In the course of time that build
ing was outgrown and was superseded by tho
present one. Through all those changes Mr.
Fox was the head and centre of tho establish
ment right up to the time of the final illness
which compelled him to quli his place In the
office. He was one of the old style of business
men who believed In the efficacy of personal
supervision and of personal relations between
employer and employed.
To him his men were something more than
parts of a machine to grind out profits. Many
of them had been with him for years Their
personal affairs were known to him. and as he
wandered about the place Inspecting the work
he would mingle his remarks anil criticism
with questions as to the welfare of their
families. It was a proverb in the foundry that
there was no bit of work which "the boss"
could not do If he chose, and occasionally ho
did so choose, for he wan not above taking off
his coat and plunging into the work when it
won not moving swiftly enough to suit him.
"I'll show you how It ought to be done," he
said, and pushing tho workmen aside he would
stoutly set himself to the task.
Ono day he criticised mildly ono of the oldest
workmen In tho foundry for n bit of work :
"I think I could do it better myself, Jim,"
"Mobbe that's true, Mr. Fox." said the old
workman: "but there's no othor man lu the
place could say It."
To the people of the neighborhood Mr. Fox
was a timepiece for his business regularity.
When he reached the Allotted threescore and
ten years some of his friends suggested to him
the advisability of retiring and leaving the
business for somebody else to carry on.
" What!" cried the old founder. Would you
leave a lively young fellow like me kicking
around with nothing to do? I tell you, harm
would come of it. When I retire It will bo for
It was for the best reason, when ono day a
short time ago ho failed to appear at the foun
dry. His life of hard work told on him when
the collapse came, and he sank quickly. The
funeral will take place to-day from hi house at
613 Wet Thirty-fourth stroet. He leaves two
sons and two daughters. Mr. Fox wa a mem
ber of the Masonic order.

Much work has been accomplished toward tho
preparation of the case. Tho red-geared wagon,
the articles found In the Guilford homo after
the flight of its Inmates the day after the body
was found, and many other clues which tho
police have but refuse to give out have been
carefully gone over ami prepared to be used
for the prosecution. In Connecticut all the
parties to tho crime aro charged as principals
and may be prosecuted as such. Thero Is a
statute which so provides, and the charge of
accessory before and after tho fact does not
exist in this State. If Mr. Guilford is charged
with murder, all those in any way connected
with tho crime will be charged with and tried
It will be probably a week before the papers
necessary to bring Eudora Guilford to this city
will reach Wellsburg. N. Y. The hearing In tho

It IHiplnyed An Many Appetising Attrac
tions That Jaws of Little Faith Were
T.mpfed to Break Their Fast Place
Closed to Prevent Further Trnubl.
Orthodox Hebrew raised a row at Division
and Canal streets last evening. The trouble
was due to the refusal of Horrloh Brothers to
close their restaurant at 141 Division street.
At 6 o'clock the day of atonement, or Yom
Klppur. began. This day Is given over to fast
ing and prsvor. nnd the fast, according to th
laws of the Jewish religion, must be strictly
kept for twenty-four hours. lromptly at 6
o'clock all the stores, restaurant, and other
eant side establishment owned by orthodox
Jews were closed. Only the unorthodox kept
their shops open.
The Herrloh brothers are noted on the east
side among the Hebrews. The little triangle
at the Intersection of Division and Canal street
is the meeting place of political spell-binders
and Inbor agitators. Speakersof anarchlstlcal
tendencies. It Is said, adjourn to the restaurant
after the gatherings and there meet their fol
lower on a personal footing. The young
American-born Hebrews of the neighborhood
go to the place, as they may be freer there than
in any other of the little cafe and restaurants
kept thereabout by people of the Hebrew
When the fast began last evening the restau
rant offered so many temptations to break It
that gray-bearded orthodox patriarchs gath
ered before tho doors and remonstrated with
the Herrlchs. telling them that they ought to
close the restaurant. To this the Herrlch
merely shrugged their shoulders.
A large crowd gathered. Home Jews went
into the place, boldly sat down at the tables
and began to eat. They woro nearly all boys of
10 or 18 years, to whom the sight of the food
was too appetizing and tempting to resist. The
sight of these woak brethren violating the
tenets of the faith raised the Ire of the older
Jews. Home ono in the rear of the crowd
throw a stone which crashed into the big plate
glas window of the restaurant and broke it
with a loud noise.
Instantly those about the door surged for
ward as If to mob the place. Many mora stone
wero thrown. One policeman. Baker of the
Madison street station, who was at the door
way with his night stick raised, charged the
crowd. The Hebrews wore uot looking for a
fight, and those In front drew back. Baker
sent for the reserves at the station, and Acting
Captain Brown came with them. Brown
talked to the keepers of the restaurant in Yid
dish for a few minutes and decided that, to
preserve the peace of the community. It was
best to close the place, so It was shut up.
The crowd was driven back and policemen
were posted to keep everybody moving. If
more than three person got to talking together
within a block of the place they were ordered
to movo on. Tho patriarchs, having accom
plished their purpose of closing the restaurant,
went their way. but a crowd remained behind
that kept the police busy thereabout until
late in the night.

Mr. Fulton Trie to Kill Her GrtvadcaMld.
and Set. Fir to Her Hon. A
YoirKBBH. N.IY.. Sept. 25. Mr. Annie K. Fnl.
ton, a resident of Chestnut street, went craay
early this morning, and arming hemelf with a v
stovellftor savagely attacked her 7-year-old
grandson as he lay in bed. She struck hint
several hard blows on the face and head, and
one blow fell upon one of hla arm as he raised
It over hi head to protect himself, and broka
the arm near the wrist. Crying with pafn and
fright, the little fellow got out of bed and ran
from the house. Some of the neighbom saw
him with his faoe covered with blood running
up the street in the direction of his aunt's
home at the corner of Oak street. As he was
about to enter his aunt's house he fell in a
faint, and one of the neighbors carried him
into the house.
While the child was endeavoring to tell
what had happened to him. smoke and flame
were seen Issuing from the house In which
Mrs. Fulton lives, and she was seen ou the
street acting strangely and. talking .wildly
about her children.
"They wont my property." she shouted.
"Now let them get what they can of it."
While one neighbor went to oall a physU
clan to attend to the bleeding boy. another
sent in an alarm of Are. When the firemen,
arrived flames were issuing from the lower
story of the building, which was all afire in
side. The building is a three-story flat house
which is owned by Mrs. Fulton, and the upper
floors ore occupied by tenants. The tenant
were obliged to run from their apartments
only partly dressed. The doors leading to Mrs,
Fulton's apartments had to be burst open by
the firemen, as Mrs. Fulton had locked them,
after setting Are to the house. After a short,
hard fight with plenty of venter, the firemen
succeeded in subduing the flames, but not I
until muoh damage haa been done to the fur
niture and interior of Mrs. Fulton's; apart
ments. The police took charge of Mrs. Fulton. She
has acted very strangely on one or two former
occasions, and seems to be possessed of the
idea that her children are persecuting her.
She wa alone with her grandson when she
attacked him, the boy's mother being in New
York city. The neighbors had noticed that Mrs.
Fulton had acted strangely of late, but she
seemed to be very fond of the child.

Tho fire was probably caused by defective elec
tric light wires in a partition. The eleven
student occupants of the house got out In a
hurry. John 0. ltedington of Evanaton. III.,
one of the most popular men in college, was
tnken to the Hitchcock Hospital this afternoon
with an attack of congestion consequent upon
exposure to smoke and overexertion while
working at the Are.
Capt. Fred J. Crollu. IK), of Waltham. Mass.,
of the 'varsity eleven, was ill In the house with
tonsillitis, and was so exposed during the fire
and so badly affected by overexertion that he
will bo unable, the doctors say, to get into the
gamo again for at leant a week. This will not
only prevent hfm from going into next Satur
day's opening with Phillips-Exeter, but tha lose
of his services at this critical time in training
may materially affect the eleven.
