Am liMrvmit with Pttto,
rwctnlil tkt Strike Mad Other
Captain Potts yesterday kindly permit
ted himself to be interviewed by a 8xm
ri reporter on the late (trike and other
matters connected with the valuable prop
erty under his charge. The Captain has
been with the Albion from the start, and
therefore is thoroughly posted on the situ
ation of affairs. He says he has nothing
to conceal, and is perfectly willing that the
shareholders and the world shall know
everything about the mine. The accounts
of the recent development as given in the
Sektiskl,, were substantially correct, in
cluding the assays, which hit the exact fig
ures, to-wit: $130 and $187 to the ton.
The strike was made at the head of the
main drift, 335-foot level, near the Tip
Top line, and on the Albion side of it.
The dip of the ore is to the northwest,
which will throw it still farther on Albion
ground at greater depth.
The ore occurs in a broken mass of lime
stone boulders, and while a regular bonsn
sa of clean ore has not been strnck, the
indications of a fine body near at hand are
as favorable as conld be desired. Mixed
up with these limestone boulders are
bunches of fine ore showing both carbon
ates and galena. Captain Potts has no
doubt that he is on the bonanza, as the
find is steadily improving with almost ev
ery stroke of the pick. He denies in toto
that he is on Richmond ground or that he
has any intention of crossing the line. The
operations mapped out for the immediate
future are to sink, raise and drift to the
southward. These tests are, in fact, al
ready in progress.
The upraise from the uncle Ham cross
cut has oeen advanced thirty feet. It is
in favorable ground, carrying stringers
and bnnchee of ore.
On the whole the Captaiif is feeling es
pecially well over the general outlook, and
eeeme to be sanguine that ere long the Al
bion will take rank as one of our ehief
bullion producers. The community gen
erally joins him earnestly in wishing that
it may.

Becoming Tired of UR, Mias Lottie
Hasty Commits Rntelde.
At an early hour yesterday morning the
news was spread abont town that Miae Lot
tie Haaty, a member of the demi-monde,
had committed suicide at her residence on
North Buei street. She had retired the
night before with a gentleman friend by
the name of McFall. On awaking in the
morning Mr. McFall was horror stricken
to find her dead. A vial was found on the
bureau containing morphine, and beside it
a glass from which she had drained the
fatal drug. As she was in uuusually good
spirits the evening before, it is thought by
some that death resulted from accident;
that is to say, that she took an overdose
without suicidal intent. It is certain, how
ever, that she meditated suicide some weeks
since, as is proven by two letters found on
the premises. Oue of the letter# was ad
dresssed to her sister Minnie, now in Tybo,
and the other to her male friend, John Mc
Fall. Following is the letter to her sister :
February 22. 1880.
Dear Min : The tin-covered trunk I have
filled with truck. Do what you think heat
with it, except to burn the pictures and
letters you don’t wish to keep. Good by.
Oh, I give my diamond ring and my but
tons to Jack. I mean the big trunk The
other tin-covered one belongs to John.
Pudge.
P. 8.—Min, do mi with Winnie and
her babies, will j j ? I tried to-night to
do so. but I Mf 't, t.oiy if Johnny wants
the little pup, give it to him. Win is best
(like myself) dead, for no one will be as
good to her. God bless yon. Lottie.
The annexed is the letter to Mr. McFall:
February 22, 1880.
Johnnie : Take the ring and keep it as
long as you live; take the buttons and do
with them ss you please. I wish you would
put the W’innie dog out of the world. No
oue will love her as I have, and she is old
now. Keep the little dog pup, if you wish,
but kill the rest of them. Jack, you and
Paullue and Joe will see the last of me,
won’t you ? Good by. Johnnie; don’t
quite forget me, will you ? Pudge.
Deceased was afflicted with incurable
deafness, which produced despondency and
probably caused her to commit the rash act
of self-destruction. She is represented as
having been a retiring, ladylike person,
and one of the beat o! her class. She was
a Sacramento raised girl, and came of an
excellent family, who now reside in E) Do
rado county. She married iu Sacramento a
gentleman named Chester, with whom she
lived for some years, finally going with him
to Boise City, Idaho. Her husband prov
ing worthless, she came to Eureka abont
six years ago, where she has since resided
with the exception of short intervals. A
messenger was yesterday dispatched to Tybo
for her sister Minuie. Owing to the ab
sence of Mr. McFall, who departed to look
after his team soon after giving the alarm,
the Coroner’a inquisition waa postponed
until to-morrow at 2 o'olook p. M., when
further facta may be elicited.

The Sad Fate of an Aged Shoshone
“OLD ADAM” TUMBLED INTO HIS SKATE
WHILE TET BREATHING.
A Life ef One Hundred lean Within a
Radian ef One Hundred lilt*;
THE APPEARANCE OF SAGELANO A CENTURY
AGO.
ntMllMtlsai of « Plnjaed Hiller ef
the Desert.
All Enrekans will remember an old In
dian—a Shoshone—who lias been risible at
intervala about the town (or the last ten
years. He was gray and wrinkled, and
seemed to hare scored at least one hundred
years. From his great age he took the
name of “Old Adam’’ among the whites.
Though aged and tottering, he was not a
mendicant. The old fellow had a bright,
intelligent eye, and carried about him a
degree of dignity seldom fonnd in the In
dian character. He scorned to beg, and
was never known to raid a swill barrel.
In conversation with the writer, a year
or two ago, he related that he was born on
Duckwater, some twenty miles south ot
Eureka. He seemed to have no means of
computing time, and could not oonvey a
very correct idea of hia age. He conld
recollect, however, back to a period when
there was not a tree to be seen on any of
the mountains of this section—when the
whole country was a barren, desolate waste.
The nutritious pine nut did not figure in
the domestic economy of the red man in
those days. But, according to Old Adam,
the hills abounded in mountain sheep, elk,
antelope, etc. Jack rabbits were also plen
tiful along the water courses. The sage
hen and grouse came later, not having been
known in these parts prior to about thirty
years ago. Game being plentiful, the In
dians fared much better in the early days
than now. Their greatest waut was wood
in the winter time. The sagebrush had
not then attained its present rank growth
and it was a close call to keep up a tire with
it. Most of the Indians sheltered in the
eaves and cliffs of the high mountain peaks.
It is a mistaken idea that the Shoshones,
as a t(ibe, were ever stronger than they
are now. They have Bteadily increased in
numbers sinco Adam was a boy.
Old Adam's observations in this world
were contined to a limited sphere. He had
never been farther north than the Hum
boldt river. 90 miles, and his travels to the
southward were confined to Tybo and the
Blue Eagle ranch. Thus he was born and
lived, a hundred years within a radius of
one hundred miles 1
Adam was an old man when Fremont and
Kit Carson made their first trip across the
continent. He did not see them, but heard
of their passage through the country from
other Indiana. The first white mat, Adam
ever saw belonged to Borne of the early
emigrant trains for Oregon, probably about
1846. He bad a vivid recollection, of
course, of the big rush for California in
1849, and tlio subsequent years. There
was no road in those days except that fol
lowing the Humboldt river, and down this
water-course the enr .'rants poured, each
season, by the thousands. It was the cause
of much worryment to the untutored mind
to imagine where they weru all going.
There waa much fighting in the vicinity of
Gravelly Ford ( near Battle Mountain) in
the early times, but Adam always declared
that the Duokwater Indiana were peaoeable
and never joined in auy of these conflicts
with the whites. Adam waa an amiable sort
of Aborigine, and we were wont to believe
him.
But. alas I the poor old man is no more.
The foSBiliferous iiuk that bound us to the
Silurian age has been severed. Old
Adam went, toes tip, on the south
end of Adams' Hill a few day* ago.
The last we saw of him last fall he shook
his head and said he would never more be
hold the budding of the nut pine. But it
is not likely that be realized the tad fate
in store for him. He wae actually buried
alive!
We are indebted to Mr. J. M. Craw
ford and Mr. Tout Brown for the par
ticulars of hie death.
These gentlemen have keen doing
the aesesament work on the claims of the
Northwestern Company. Several wickiups
are hard by. The other day an Iudian
approached Crawford and Brown to bor
row a pick and shovel to dig a grave. The
tools were furnished, when a round hole
was scooped out on the hillside about two
feet deep and six feet across. Prompted
by curiosity the minera on the way to din
ner called at the camp to inspect the corpse.
They found the dying man (for he Waa not
yet dead) to be Old Adam. The grave had
been prepared and a half a dozen bucks
were Just in the act of dragging him off.
The miners discovered that the man was
still breathing and was likely to live sev
eral hours, and they promptly ordered a
postponement of the last sad rites until
life should be extinct. The Indians de
murred and iuaiated that the old man wae
dead enough to bury. To prove this they
put enow on his forehead, which not melt
iug, they argued that he waa far enough
gone to be put out of the way. But the
miners demanded a suspension of the
funeral ceremonies and succeed in getting
the old fellow put back into hia blankets.
The Indiana are superstitious about having
dead people lying around loose, and for
thiz reason it is a custom with them to
harry the corpse. The miners, however,
were successful in extracting a promise
that Old Adam should be kept above
ground until sundown. With this under
standing they paaeed on to their meal. Re
turning forty minutes later the same way,
they found to their astouiskment that the
still breathing man had been bnried and the
whole campoody bad broken up and gone.
They have not the slightest doubt that Old
Adam was deposited several hours in ad
vance of the flight of hia spirit to the hap
py hunting grounds.
Serious Illneaa or nn Old Cltlaea.
We are sorry to learn of the serious ill
ness of onr old friend, James M. M.
Moody. He hss been confined to his
room, at the Silver Brick lodging-house,
since last Monday, with little chance, we
fear, of recovery. He is afflicted with slang
disease, of an aggravated nature -possibly
quick consumption. Mr. Moody has re
sided in Eureka for the last nine years, the
while conducting himself as s straightfor
ward business man and good citizen. He
has hosts of friends in Eureka, and all over
Nevada, who will be pained to learn that
his end seems so near at hand. He may,
possibly, rally and get oot again for a time
bat hit immediate attendants fear the
worst.
A DastsNIy Assault.
About 8 o’clock Wednssdsy evening Mr,
Quill, a miner on Buby Hill, was puling
the offloe of the Water Company, when a
man name towards him and atTook at him
with a dirk-knife. Mr. Qnill threw up his
hand to ward off the blow, and in doing ao
received a pretty bad ant aoross the hand
After the man had made the thrust with
the knife at Mr. Quill, he exolalmed that
ho was mistaken in his man, and ran off
as fast ao ho could.

Hr. V. F. Verdenal write* to the Boston
Advertiser, under date of March 20th, aa
follows : The market for mining shares
during the week has not bean characterised
by any increased activity, so far as leading
stocks are concerned. The outsiders have
not quite recovered from the scare which
afflicted them when Little Pittsburg made
its sudden somersault, but it now looks as
if the sober, second thought had come to
the rescue, induoed by the fact that there
have been heavy purchasers at $10 per
share. Those who have ventured to em
bark in Colorado stocks have thus far had
very little to complain of. Little Pittsburg
being the exception to the rule of good in
vestments. Many promises were made
about Little Pittsburg, which have only
been partially redeemed; many promises
have been made in connection with Chrys
olite and Little Chief, and to far these as
surances and promises have been realised.
Chrysolite has declared its fifth divideud,
aggregating one million dollars in five
months, besides an expenditure of nearly
half a million di 1 art for permanent im
provements. Well qualified mining engi
neers who have recently visited the prop
erty declare that it has not been worked up
to its limit as was Little Pittsburg, but
that its output can be largely increased.
That such will be the case no one who
knows the character of its managers can
doubt. Tho mine has been opened up on
a systematic plan, very much in vogue
among some of the abused miners front tbe
Pacific slope, who make it an invariable
rule when they take out a ton of ore to de
velop one in its place. Little Chief has
declared its second dividend of one hun
dred thousand dollars, and the working of
tbe mine is conducted on tho same princi
ple as the Chrysolite. Had the Little Pitts
burg managers made haste slowly, instead
of going in a hurry for the rloh cheese in
sight, they would be in greater popular
favor to-day.
Mines cannot be opened in a day or a
year, and tbe bullion production of Colo
rado, so far tested by its years of mining
experience, ought to place that State far in
the van of mining investment centers.
Outside of the Comstock the entire silver
State of Nevada has bad but few dividend
paying mines, and these were made pro
ductive only after the sinking of large
amounts of capital and yeara of ainking
and drifting.
The Colorado mines that aro paying div
idends in New York are few compared to
what the number will bo. say before the
year is out. The iron silver mine recently
incorporated, comes in under fsvorable au
spices. While Messrs. Stevens 4 Letter,
the former owners (and still largely inter
ested in the new company), did not care
about large returns, they ope ned up their
projierty with good judgment, and now it
is only a question of a few months’ time
when regular dividends will be continued,
and unless all the experts who have exam
ined the property are mistaken, indefinite
ly. With a contact vein opened for four
thousand feet by level-, drills, inclines and
shafts, with a pay lode five feet thick on an
average, and yielding over $100 to tho ton,
the permanency of such a mine cannnot be
questioned. The Robiusuu mines announce
the payment of quarterly dividends, com
mencing on the 1st of June. This prom
ise is based upon the present development
of the mine, and where onn ton of $200 ore
ie exhausted, five tons are developed by tho
continued sinking of the main incline and
the extension of the drifts and levels. The
managers of Silver Cliff have overcome
the difficulties and disappointments neces
sarily attending the opening of a new mite
and the running of a new mill, and are
confident of the property’s ability to pay
dividends within a few months. The same
assn ance is put forth iu behalf of Bull
Domingo and other Colorado properties.
Colonel Osbiston. Superintendent of the
Hnkill and Breeland mines, is not back
ward in assuring his friends that these
properties are on the eve of becoming div
idend-paying. So muoh for Colorado.
The Black Hills mines, largely owned in
the East, have certainly earned an enviable
reputation and should be a guarantee to
other investors that good mines cau bo
made profitable investments, llomestake's
dividends have been as regular as clock
work. Deadwood starts in as Homestako
did, and no fear need be entertained of a
cessation of dividends from that quarter.
The house of Haggin never makes rash
promises. Father De Bmet is good for
thirty cents per share per month for years
to come—when Archie Borland and his
children’s children shall have been gath
ered to their last abiding place. It is only
a question of a few montns when Gulden
Terra, Highland, Caledonia and Btaud-by
will enter the dividend lists. Bo much for
Dakute.
If California had no other representa
tives in the markets of New York and Bos
ton than Standard, it would be a creditable
showing. Its dividends have been steadily
and regularly paid. Those who bought
early, and held oti, have not suffered. They
are assured of dividends fur y nrs to come.
The Bodie District has many wildcats; per
haps they swarm in countless herds—but
there are also good mines, which the year
1888 will demonstrate. Mr. Lent and Mr.
Miner, who probably know as much about
Bodie as anybody, are full of hope tor the
Distriot, based upon their advices and ex
perience. Altogether, the Eastern invest
ors, who have Judiciously put their money
in mining stocks, cannot ooniplaiu. The
return has been generous, the promise for
the future is generous, and more money
will assuredly be made the balance of the
year in such securities than by "investing"
in wheat, long or short, or rsilroad fancies.
Those who are inclined to pooh-pooh the
reports of “Western experts," as those
from the Psoific slope, should remember
that it was not the reports of those that set
such a very high figure on Little Pittsburg.
It was some nearer home, whose ex
perience was mors theoretical than prac
tical.
The new Mining Board is progressing
favorably, although the outsiders are
growling at what they call slow work.
Borne wasn't built in a single day, any
more than Boston was, and the managers
of the new Board are making haste slowly.
Better build a good foundation, and have a
solid structure, than one that a financial
zephyr can blow down. The financial old
timers are looking more favorably upon the
Mining Board, and quite a large number
of the applicants for membership are
among the stalwarts of Wall street, who, a
few years since, would have considered it
an insult to be consulted on the subject.
In Destitute Circumstances.
There is a lady in town with three small
children in destitute circumstanoes. She
has neither wood, provisions nor any of
the comforts of life. Her husband died
two years ago. It seems to be a case ap
pealing strongly to the good offices of the
charitable among us. The name of the
lady is suppressed through considerations
of delicacy. Mrs. H. Zottmsn brought
the case to the attention of the Bshtuizl.
Persons desiring to aid the destitute lady
and her little children can learn full par
ticulars by calling on Mrs. Zottman.
