GOLD SECURED FROM
NEAR ALBUQUERQUE
TEN TONS OF UNASSORTED ORE
YIELD $1,800 OF THE PRE
PRECIOUS YELLOW METAL
ABOUT FORTY MILES
AWAY.
A representative of The Citizen
saw, yesterday, in the Bank of Com
merce, two peculiar looking objects,
lying in a box. They had the ap
pearance of the two halves of a
rather large apple which had been cut
in two midway between the stem and
blossom ends. Closer scrutiny show
ed them to be two buttons of gold,
as milling men call them, and it was
learned on authority that tlfe two,
one of which was finer than the
other, were worth $l,8uu.
But what interested the scribe
more than aught else was that these
buttons had been gathered from ten
tons of ore, and that such ore in large
quantiites lay only about forty miles
from Albuquerque and about twenty
miles from the railroad.
To be more explicit, this gold came
from the Gold Coin claim, in the
Golden, X. M., district. This district,
for many years, has been known to
be very rich in gold, the precious
metal beiug distributed in veins, in
placers, and in the widely extended
conglomerate of the district, the lat
ter being locally known as "cement."
A number of paying claims have from
time to time been more or less devel
oped in that section, while of the
placers there Prof. Jones has said
that they are probably the oldest
placers ever worked in America. Even
now, it is no unusual thing, after a
hard rain, for valuable nuggets to be
picked up from amuiig the gravel.
This Gold Coin ciaim some two
months ago was leased by Sherman
Brown and William Schoen, both of
Milwaukee. They are stripping the
face of "the hill from the bottom of
the gulch to the hill's top. The vein
Is a true fissure, and there are three
grades of the ore. A streak through
the center is almost pure and has
assayed $.'3s. to the ton. The rock
on either side of this highly mineral
ized streak will average $7u to the
ton, and to the eye appears plainly
and plentifully impregnated with
gold .particles, while that which is
further away, averages only about $lu
to the ton.
The mill run. from which the two
buttons were made, was the first
clean up after the stripping hail be
gun, the third clas ore being not
used. 11. A. Staatz is in charge of
the work, the lessees not being there.
But it is confidently said that they
are much pleased with the develop
ments tins far, and that they will
push the work for nil there U in It.

HOW INDEPENDENT JURISTS
HIGHEST TRIBUNAL IN COLORADO, WITH LAST SAY,
THWARTS HONEST ELECTION LEAGUE PLANS, BUT
IT HAS HAD TO REVERSE ITSELF AND OVER
LOOK A FEW INCONSISTENCIES.
Special Correspondence.
Denver, Aug. 6. Colorado's fight
against electoral frauds and its cam-!
paign to expose a servile supreme
court began on the night before the
"taxpayer" franchise election, the
one in which new gas and tramway
grants cf appalling liberality were'
railroaded be ore the people.
Following carefully the procedure
stamped by the supreme c.urt's ap
proval when it countenanced the
theft of the governorship, the Honest
Election league ar.plied for an injunc
tion against fraud. The application'

was made to District Judge Frank T.
Johnson, one ot the few jurists known
to be Independent of the machine.
Ho issued the wru and ordered ap-;
P-'inted loi watchers to see that it j
was enforced.
On the aay after the election these !
watchers reported that fraud liad been'
committed in violation of the restrain-j
ing order.
Rules for contempt were issued
against the persons who had voted un
dir the makeshift receipts for insigni
ficant taxes on properly they did nol
own. Gas employes admitted they
had d-ne this at the order from the
president oi the company, Henry x
herty. Doherty n fused to answer
questions uixm the plea that it might
incriminate him. Judge Johnson or-i
dered him sent to Jai.,
Monarch of All.
Upon a hurried appeal by his attor
neys the supreme court gravely de
cided that a district Judge had no
right to d what It had done in the
state election, but thai it held a su
preme" and exclusive right to protect
the citizens aga.nst fraud. It i.ased
this opinion uikmi the bold statement
i-at it had "kingly prerogatives' and
represented in Co.orafio what King
Edward and his king's bench do in
cngland.
It opened the jail for the president
of the gas company and restrained
Judge Johnson irm proceeding .,4
his fraud inquiry.
Attack on Corruption.
The next move of the league was
to apply to Judge Mullins on the crim
inal bench, for a special grand jury,
to lie filled through special elisors and
under a special prosecutor, to Investi
gate the frauds. A showing was made
that the sheriff and regular district at
torney were a part of the conspiracy

ANNUAL YACHT CONTEST FOR
COVETED KING'S CUP TROPHY
Newport, It. I.. Aug. 8. A score or
more of the fleetest yachts that ever
dipped their bow into eastern waters
are sailing today over the thirty-five
mile course off Newport harbor, in a
spirited contest for the King's Cup,
the most coveted prize of the season.
The King's Cup is the perpetual chal
lenge cup presented by King Kdward
VII to the New York Yacht club, to
be contended for annually. The tro
phy cost 1,000 guiueas and is of solid
gold, excepting the base. It is forty
inches tall. The cup Is scrolled and
emblazoned and bears one shield with
the title of the cup and general con
ditions, and another shield for the
names of the winners. The name of
each winner shall 'receive from the
club a medal or other trophy to com
memorate his victory. The cup is to
be held forever by the yacht club.
Any yacht belonging to any yacht
club in the L'nited Slates, in good
standing, U eligible to compete for
tiie cup. The only restrictions are
that all sloops must be over 5" feet
along the water line mm schooners
'.') feet. These conditions may, in the
future, be changed by the fl 'Air officers
of tiie club, who also have the right
to determine the dates and courses
of the races.
The yacht competing in the race
today are about equally divided be
i,n sloops and schooners. Among
the crack yachts taking pun in the
race are Win. K. Leelin's Vigilant,
the former cup defender; J. Holers
Maxwell's schoouer Queen; W. S. j

hearing, the chairmen of both political

tnat the corporations luTd financed the
campaigns of both partus, and they
refused to tell w"ieie iiioy got thr
funds. .
"Unhand Her, Vidian."
Again the corporations hurried 1 1
the supreme court. They did not want
tne sheriff or district attorney remov
ed. They wanted their party chair
men out ot jail.
The supreme court ordered Judge
Mullins to desist until il could consid-

Court.
er the cae, an! set a date for a decis
ion so far ahead t?iat. Judge Mullins
would be icut of office before it came.
On the day after the order against
Mulling was lssneiT, Judge Mullins,
calmly declaring that lie had been
stopped in the proceeding brought by
the lcagu, aid he would proceed tin
: .it t his own liowers.
j He the issued a fresh orBer remov
i ing the sheriff and attorney and most
openly dared the supreme court to
send him to jail for contempt.
Can't Understand It.
He rehearsed the (leclsLn it th..
writ against Judge JoTinson ami con
cluded with this defiance:
"I do not claim for this bench any
kingly prerogatives or any descent
from kings of England, eillierby com
mon law or otherwise. 1 was taught
in my youth to believe that, this non
sense had been suot out cf this coun
try at Lexington and Bunker Hill."
Again to the riescue.
The supreme court, rathr Chief
Justice oubuert, recogulzeu ad a friend
of the machine, did not send Mullins
to jail, he contented himself instead
without giving a reason for revers
ing the court's own decision of a year
ago, and defying tue cunstitutl. nal
provision concerning the suspension
of officers whose motives are chal
lenged with issuing a new order
which put the grand Jury back in the
hands of 'partisans of the corporations.
Judge Mullins thereupon would not
call a grand jury at all, ta be presided
over by men who, he said, he believed
to be in the employ of the criniiuals
sought to be investigated.
