What Is Being- Done in San Die?o
County and the Peninsula.
Notes About the Carga Mnchacho Pla
cers—San Bernardino County
Mines—Perrls and Its Prom
ising Prospects,
San Diego: Reports from mining
camps in this county and Lower Califor
nia show a steady development and
more expenditure of money than ÜBual.
It is true that some camps, like Alamo
and Julian, are doing very little, but
their inactivity ia more than made up
by the opening of new camps like that
of Juarez, and the great increase of work
at Oalmalli, Piehaco district and others.
By far the greatest development is going
on in Lower California, the results of
which are felt in this city. In gold min
ing the most work on the peninsula
tributary to San Diego is being done at
Oalmalli and Juarez. The operations in
the former camp were reported in the
Union a few days ago. Superintendent
M. G. Rhodes/who went south on the
steamer Pacheco last week, confirmed
the reports of rich strikes in the Ibarra
group and added that, in hia opinion,
the mineß would become famous as gold
Much placer mining ia being done at
Jnarez and Oampo Nacional. Forty-five
Chinese lately moved to the latter camp
from Alamo, which has been almost
totally abandoned. At Juarez two
hydraulic plants are at work extracting
gold with good results.
The development of the New Pedrara
onyx quarries and the increased work
at Oalmalli and Cedros island have
made necessary a larger steamer to ply
between peninsular ports and San
Diego, and the work soon to be com
menced at the great iron mines near San
Isidro will add to the volume of exports
from this port. Prospecting is continu
ally going on in the unexplored interior
of the peninsula, which has been
demonstrated to be remarkably rich in
many classes of mineral. Onyx beds
equal to those of New Pedrara have
been located and ate being investigated
by capitalists, and tbe same may be eaid
of locations of iron ledges near those of
the Tepustete company at San Isidro.
Manuel Riveroll, Hon. Anthony Godbe,
J. M. Gonzalez and W. H. Rodda are
interested in the discoveries of iron,
and are awaiting the construction of a
wharf by the Tepuatete people to organ
ize and develop their properties.
San Diejto Union: It is reported that
the rich placers known to exist in the
vicinity of Dulzura will be developed by
a company vi hich will work on a large
scale. The Mount Tecarte water enter
prise will be depended upon to furnish
water for hydraulicking. Several prom
ising ledgss are also being developed by
Irving L. Carl aud others.
Locations of prospects in the Picacho
district are continually received at the
court houee from the California Picacho
Gold Mining company, which is oper
ating in the eastern portion of San
Diego county. Not much is heard of the
mining operations of that region, sepa
rated as it is by the 'Colorado desert
from the coast.
At Julian some finds have recently
been made that promise to redeem the
fortunes of that camp. Work has lately
been resumed on tne old Ella mine by
the owner, S. W. Wilcox, and an ex
tensive vein of rich mining ore uncov
ered. The Ella is located on the con
tact vein, four miles northwest of tbe
famous Golden Chariot mine, which
turned out an immense amount of bul
lion during the early days of mining in
the Julian district- The body of ore
lately discovered in the Ella mine is
one of tbe richest that baß ever been
found in the Julian gold belt, and prom
ises rich returns to the fortunate owner.
The first ore from this newly uncovered
vein was recently milled at the Ready
Relief mill, and in eight days' ran
cleared up over $7000. Beßides the Ella,
the Wilcox brothers aUo own tbe Cal
ifornia, (iolden Gate, Pegleg and Ex
tension mineß, all on the same contact
vein and all very promising proper
A number of Pacific coast mining
men, consisting of William Johnß of Al
ameda, William M. Jamea and ex-Gov.
H. G. Blasdel of Nevada, arrived in
Ferris Tuesday and on Wedneeday
inspected the Good Hope and Rosalia
mines, on which they have had their
eyes for some time. The gentlemen
represent quite a syndicate of mining
sapitalißts, and it ie probable a deal will
be made.
San Bernardino Courier: Tbe follow
ing, taken from the Register and City
Ball Record, in Chicago, shows of what
i Dortion of our great mineral wealth
ionßists. It is a record to be proud of,
md the Courier speaks of it with pride:
The following are the San Bernardino
county, California, properties:
No. 18. Jenny Lind —Vanderbilt min
ing district. One-half mile west of
Briggs' ranch and one-half mile east of
Keystone Bpringß. It ia a big, strong
edge, and samples from the center of
;he ledge and surface were assayed,
ibowing gold.
No. 19. Daisy—New York mining dis
irict. One mile west of Brigga' ranch;
ine-fourth mile east of High Peak;
ihree-fourths of a mile from the Now
Fork company's large mines, employing
100 men. The Daisy is well up the east
lide of a rugged mountain, ore streak
iropping out six inches at the top and
•radnally widening as it goes down.
Sample for assay, three feet from the
mrface, Bhow gold, Bilver, copper and
cad. The president eaya that he
ibinkl this a good piece of property,
md would like to oee some work done
m tho claim.
No. 20. Lucky Cuaa—Madison hill,
'rovidence if.nge. Oro cropping out on
urface, from 0 to 12 inches; free sold.
k.siay from samples secured at different
>lacee along the ledge on surface as fol
ows: Copper, 175 per "'en*; 35 por
lent lead; 54 ounces silver and 5 ounces
;old to the ton. Value of assay per ton
or gold and silver, $154.
No. 21. Savannah —Madison hill,
providence range. Parallels the Lucky
"3uss, 500 feet distant aud n little to the
lortbwest. Ore streaks two feet wide
rere opened and a sample was obtained
,wo feet from the surface which assays
is follows: 5.76 per cent copper, 10 per
:ent lead, 20.70 ouDcea Bilver and 1.50
iunr.es gold to tbe toil, Value of assay,
60.70 to the ton.
No. 22. Beet ford—Thousand leet east
if Old Dutch spring. Three miles north
«*. High peak in Providence range. One
half mile southeast ol Lucky Cast. Ore
streak ranging from 6 to 14 inches, crop
ping out of tbe surface. Samples from
surface assayed 2 per cent copper, 3 50
per cent lead, 10.50 ouncea silver and
1.20 ounces gold tn the ton. Value of
assay per ton. $34.50.
No. 23. Elenora—One-half mile east
of Old Dutch spring, in the Madison
hill, Providence range, three-fourths of
a mile southeast of the Lucky Cuss and
GOO feet from Beckford. Ore streaks
crop out from 4 to 12 inchea in width
and show the same character of ore aa
the Lucky Cusa. Samples from the sur
face for aasay show gold and silver.
No. 24. Ironclad—Three-fourths of a
mile northwest of the High Peaks of
Providence mountain. It lice three
miles south of tbe Savannah; tbe ledge
crops out 60 feet wide and 10 to 20 feet
high, pure ami solid, just as the samples
assayed, which shows 52.40 per cent
magnetic iron to the ton. There are 50,
--000 tons in sight, and this mine appears
to be inexhaustible. It is the most
valuable ere for steel, and can be used
for fluxing in a section where such ores
are rarely found and difficult to obtain.
It is also believed to be the cap of a
large mineral deposit. A quartz bearing
ledge, showing ricn gold, runs at right
angles with the Ironclad, disappearing
when it comes in contact with the iron
and coming out immediately on the
other Bide. It is in this section that the
noted Bonanza King mine is located »ud
from which several million dollars have
been taken out, and which is still es
timated to be worth over $2,000,000.
There is plenty of wood on the ground,
water is obtainable by sinking and a
railroad is being surveyed within five
miles of the Ironclad. It in 18 miles
from the railrad from Goff to New Yorx
and Vanderbilt mining districts and
Goode springe.
Carga Muchacho Placers.
Yuma (A. T.,) Times: We are in
debted to Henry Dunn for some further
information regarding the placer ground
at Carga Muchacho which has been in
dispute. Mr. Dunn says that much
that has got into print ii not exactly
The claim was originally located by
Charles Olsen, who sold it to P. H.
Mathison. All tbe work done on,it by
Olsen did not amount to $10. Mathiaun
did nothing. After Dunn and Darling
began work on the ground, Mathison
transferred hia claim to a man named
Cassidy, who keeps a saloon in San
Diego. He swore out a complaint
against Dunn, charging him with grand
larceny in taking gold from his claim.
Bonds were given in $1000 by the ac
cused and the trial was set for 20 days
thereafter. Five days before the time
set for trial the case was dismissed aa
tbe district attorney said the charge of
grand larceny could not be sustained. It
is not grand larceny to jump a claim and
dig gold out of it. If tne time is not up
the owners may have the jumpers dis
possessed and can recover the value of
whatever they may have taken out but
that is all. There is now no charge
against Mr. Dunn and he stands clear of
any offense. No attempt haa been made
by Cassidy and Mathison to dispossess
Dunn and Darling.
Since locating the ground the present
owners have put down ten shafts to bed
rock, varying in depth from 32 to 43
feet. Sufficient water is also found io
wash oat the pay dirt by means of tbe
rocker. As before stated, the gold ia
coarse, and the largeet nugget found
weighed exactly $41.90. The total
amount taken out so far is over $4000.
The claim of Dunn & Darling is ten
acres ol ground.
Considerable prospecting has been
done in the vicinity, but the actual work
has not amounted to much heretofore.
A few Mexicans, Americans aud one
Italian miner are at work on their
claims, but none of them have struck it
very rich at yet.
The Vanderbilt Country.
San Bernardino Times-Index: Latest
advices from the Needles are to the
effect that work on the Nevada Sonthern
is being rapidly pushed forward and
that the contract for another section
will shortly be let. The first section of
tbe road is now about completed, and
when it shall have been formally opened
to business, development on an intelli
gent scale will begin. It will then be
possible to carry building material te
erect houses and to get towns nnder
way. the location of which will of course
depend largely on the railway authori
ties. That several important mining
towns will spring np on the hundred
miles of the Nevada Southern —its pres
ent projected length—there ia no doubt.
All tbe indications point to settlements
at least aa large as at Bodie, whiie many
welliinformed persons believe that Vir
ginia Oity may be approached or Bur
The circumstance that such men as
Isaac E. Blake and other enterprising
citizens of Denver, and D. C. Scofield
and other men of prominence in San
Francisco have taken hold of the Nevada
Southern and are pushing it forward in
an energetic way, ia itself almost a
guarantee of a notably successful out
come of both the railway and the min
ing districts which it is being built to
Tbe mining properties now being de
veloped In the section by Flood, Mackey
and other enormously wealthy mining
men improve constantly, and there is
little doubt that one of the biggest
camps in the history of tbe coast will be
established in the Vanderbilt country.
As the mines are gold-bearing, the camp
will not be affected by the slump ia
silver. _
Developments of the Other Gold Mines.
River'aide Enterprise: Ex-Governor
H. G. Blaßdel of Nevada, now a resident
of Oakland, is preparing to begin work
on a gold mine (the Rosalia) in tbe
Good Hope mining district in the vicin
ity of Perrie. He is heavily, interested
and has been for years interested in
mining in Nevada and other portions of
the country. In fact this is hie busi
ness, and he has made a success of it,
and the public are assured that there is
a promise of something handsome in
the mines of that section of the River
side county, else the governor would not
touch it. Arrangements are being made
with the Elsinore coal mine for a supply
of 35 tons of coal per month to be used
in the development of Governor Blbb
del's mine. To meet other engagementß
the governor went north yesterday, and
during hia absence his interests will be
in the hands of E. J. Rawson.

A Thesis on the Subject by
Miss Helen A. Nevin.
A Subject ol General Interest to
Friends of Education.
The InmMit Amount of Money Which
Has Bern Giren to the Publlo Li
braries— What Ought to Bt
Oono in This Olty.
[At the recent examination of public
library pupils for certificates the thesis
of Alias Helen A. Nevin, given bslow,
received, with that of Miaa Darlow, the
highest marking allowed by tbe rule* of
the committee. The subject upon which
it treats ia one of general interest, and
especially ao to the frienda of education
who deaire to see the usefulness of the
public library extended on a much larger
basis than is possible even with the as
sistance of the full amount of the fund
that the law allows the city council to
appropriate for that purpose. Library
benefactions by private individuals have
been so numerous and so munificent in
tho older settled communities, and it
has became such a recognized thing
amoDg rich people of philanthropic in
clinations to devote some of their wealth
to tbe support of public llbrariee, that it
would seem to be only in the natural
order of things that this wave of gener
osity should strike Southern California
soon. The support of a library is one of
those things that a generously disposed
person can do in life as easily aa to pro
vide for a bequest. The need for a
separate library and museum building
for Loa Angeles is a crying one; and
while it does not appear likely that for
the present such an institution can be
paid for by the general body of taxpay
ers, the necessity is all the more urgent
for the aaaistance of some wealthy person
who may thus de good to thousands and
found a name thai will be preserved in
after years.]
The nineteenth century is eminently
the century of progress, not merely in
things material, bat also in things in
tellectual. And while the chief boast of
our age is the unparalleled advance
ment of applied science in its various
phases of manufactures, intercommuni
cation and traneportation, yet promin
ent among the factors of thie twofold
progression of the material and the in
tellectual, and the co-ordinate in its
far reaching influence with the schools
and colleges of ths country, is the pub
lic library of our day and of our land.
Continued advancsment ie to be bad
only at the price of knowledge—knowl
edge of what has already been accom
plished. Here it is thut the public
library intervenes by opening up to the
seekers after new inventions and im
proved methods the record of the world's
progress. And while it constitutes so
large n factor in thia phase of davelop
ment and improvement, the public
library is no leas a factor, but on the
other band, is a far nobier agent in
social amelioration, or popular uplifting.
In ita accessibility to all, the universal
ity ol its public influence, the efficiency
of its action as a public instructor and
educator, the public library merits to
the full the designation of the "Univer
sity of the People." A university, ad
mission to who3e precincts involves no
vexing question oi birth or endowment,
money or ability, but one whose doors
swing wide open to every age aud condi
tion of life, to every taste and every
capacity, a university wnere no one
with the ability to read ia too feeble or
too ignorant to enter, and where no one
ie too old or too wiae to be above gain
ing additional wisdom. ■.
It ie the realization of those facts and
the profound conviction of their truth
fulness that have of recent years turned
the channels of philanthrophy co pow
arfully in the direction of the public
library, that $25,000,000 have flowed
forth from the munificence of private
citizens for the founding and endowing
of public libraries in the United States
•lone. Instances of this liberality could
be quoted almost without limit, till
time if nothing else, would fail in a
mere enumeration of tho names of the
ionors and the sums they have given,
ro the well informed mind it is need
less to specify auch names as Astor,
Pratt, Newberry, Carnegie, Tilden,
Sutro, Orerar—a galaxy of names among
library benefactors.
The spread ef the public library in
the United States has been something
phenomenal. According to the report
of the commissioner of education, the
number of publicmbraries in our coun
try less than a decade ago approximated
GOOO, ranging from the great national
library of over 500,000 volumes, down to
the little but none the leaa proportion
ately useful village library of 300 vol
umes. Their distribution is such that
while there ia on an average about one
library to every 10,000 persons, yet the
proportion varies from one to 2700 in
New Hampshire, to one for each 50,000
in Arkansas. In this connection it iB of
interest to know that our own state ia
well to the front in the list, ("curiously
enough," as an esteemed eastern news
paper insinuates,; Standing eighth
with 188 public lidraries, beinu an aver
age of one to every 4000 persons.
In tbe growth and present condition
of our home library, Los Angeles has
not only contributed towards the fur
thering and maintaining of the present
high rank of the etate, but epitomizes
also, as it were, in the development and
high standing of her public library in
recent years, the spirit and genius of
the vaunted nineteenth century.
Founded in 1872 under the title of the
"Los Angeles Library association," with
a small stock of books obtained in part
from monthly daea and in part from life
membership feea, it came in April of
1878 into the possession and under the
control of the city council, and then as
sumed its present title of the "Loa An
geles Public Library." With sundry
vicissitudes, changea of librarians and
alterations of liberal and parsimonious
policies in ita management, it has finally
come into its present estate, furnished
throughout with library fittings and ar
rangements of the moat Improved de
igns, equipped with the bent labor eav
aug devices in library economy, and
iocated in what were until recently con
ls dered spacious and airy rooms. In
addition to all this and above oil, a pub
lie interest has been created, fosterod
and ably maintained in the develop
ment and well-being of the library. No
better confirmation of this can be
required than the mere circumstance
that irrespective of the size of the
population or the number of volumes
reposing on the shelves of their public
libraries, Los Angeles ranks sixth
among the cities of the United States in
the number of volumes actually taken
out for home use in the course of a sin
gle year! To such a point indeed haß
the arousal of the interest of tbe public
come, and to such a pitch has its de
mands for assistance in ait tbe depart
ments of library recreation and study
arrived, that what' but recently were
ample quarters and noble equipment,
have retrograded into crowded shelves,
cramped apartments and insufficient
space on every hand.
Here, then, is ajwide door of oppor
tunity open to him who will but enter
in and avail himself of tbe privilege of
extending a helping band. While it
has been urged by some that our city, aa
a measure of relief to our overcrowded
library, ahould by the issuance of bonds
provide for the erection of a large, sub
stantial and suitable library building, it
cannot be forgotten that the recent and
repeated issue of bonds for internal im
provements have already burdened the
city with a large bonded indebtedness —
a circumstance which cannot help but
militate strongly against this scheme of
In this crisis, then, may we not look
for the emergency to develop for ue the
liberal giver who shall devise for ua
liberal things? With abundance of
suitable sites already in the possession
of the city, will not the benefactor arise
who shall provide our chosen city with
an ornate structure which shall be at
once library, art gallery, museum and
lecture hall, a place of reception for the
stranger in our midst, and a source of
lasting good to ourselves and generations
yet to come? Reserving to ourselves,
as the people, the privilege of maintain
ing and developing the library, yet its
home so provided will be to tbe donor a
lasting, imperishable memorial, which
ahall preserve his name and the record
of his good deeds to all time.
And what sweeter reward in the pres
ent can there bo to such a giver than
the realization that he haß provided an
abiding place for an institution which
yields to none in its wide-spreading in
fluence for good ? A place whera the
child, compelled early in life to earn a
livelihood, may continue its education ;
where the adult who has failed to make
use of early opportunities may make
amends for his remissness; where all,
npon whose labors depend the moral,
intellectual, political, industrial and
sanitary welfare of the people, may find
their needed information and instruc
tion. A place where the debasing influ
ence of the barroom and the demoraliz
ing influence of the gambling resort and
billiard bar! would be displaced for thou
eanda of young men by entertainment of
the higheat and pureet order; and laetly
and above all, a place which, by elevat
ing the general etandard of intelligence
in the community and time making tbe
city a etill more desirable place of resi
dence, would attract as well as retain
those of the beat character, upon whom
finally tbe material prosperity and
moral and political well-being of our
city must and shall ever depend.
Mrs. Wlnana of Santa Ana a Kittle Be
hind Time.
The Chicago Herald: The latest in
stance of this kind that has come into
notice is that of a second California!!
claimant to honor of having been the
first white child born in Chicago. The
reader will find all that is here known of
the case in the woman's department in
the California building at the world*
fair. Then, in a glass inclomre that
contains many rich and beautiful things,
will be seen p. jar that is coatily wound
and topped with chased silver and filled
with some tempting jelly or other, and,
graven on a tablet of silver is a name,
| Mrs. Susan Winaua," and underneath
the name is this legend: "First white
chi'u born in Chicago, III.; February 18,
1812." There is also Mrs. Winans* pho
tograph, which represents an aged mat
ron that is by no moana destitute of
atronj features. The amiable lady in
charge of the department knows little
enough of this person who ia thus in
vested with an interest for Chicago peo
ple, except as bar history waa told by a
gentleman of Santa Ana.Cal., from whose
hand the precious jar wn. received.
Santa Ana is where also Mrs. Winans
lives, and by the citizens of that smart
little town, but recently become the
shire town of the new county of Orange,
she appears to be held in high esteem.
Her claim is that she was born in Fort
Dearborn in the year of ths massacre,
and only six months before the happen
ing of that shocking event. Her father
was a minor officer of the garrison, bat
what his name and where and bow hia
daughter was transported to California
the reader may not be informed until
next month, when, it is given out, some
account of her family and of her own ex
istence will be printed in one of the les
ser magazines devoted to history. In
the meantime it must be accepted that
she honestly thinks herself what ehe
pretends to being, for otherwise she
wonld not make her claim so conspicu
ously under the very eye of Chicago and
the world. But she is, of coarse, mis
taken. It ie another case of conviction
under the influence of incorrect legend
a million times repeated.
Now it should be stated once more,
what has been in various print so often,
that two children of white parents were
born in Chicago prior to 1808, a girl born
to John and Eleanor Kinzie, and a eon
born to Lieut. William Whistler and
Mrs. Whiatler, both in October, 1807.
The girl was given the name of Maria
and became the wife of General Hunter;
the son was named John Harrison, who
grew up in the military service, married
and became responsible for bringing
into the world "tne painter Whistler,
whose artistic freaks about equally pro

Vanderbilt Nugget: Since onr laat
report the St. George mine haa cloaed
down until pumps and larger boiating
works can be sent from San Francisco,
Superintendent Liele haa gone to San
Francisco after the machinery, and it
will probably be here before tbe next
issue of tho Nugget appears. In tbe
meantime a few men are at work trim
tnjng the different shafts, and one hoist
ing engine ia kept busy drawing water
from tho shaft.
Great changes have taken place in
this mine einoe oar last report, it hav
ing been cold to J. B. Haggan, We
have not learned the purchase price,
but it is generally understood that the
price paid was $80,000. Work has been
commenced clearing out the shaft and
drifts, and grading Tor new and expen

to arrive here in about 10 daye, when
work will be commenced upon a larger
scale, and a large namber of men will be
Work is still progressing rapidly upon
this mine, and since our last reportquite
a body of rich ore has been uncovered,
but we were unable to learn ita assay
Work Btill continues upon thia mine
and good ore is being encountered as
depth is attained. Considerable drift
ing will be done now and continue until
machinery arrives to sink to a greater
This mine is situated just below the
Campbell group and is down 75 feet,
and will be sunk at once 100 feet more.
At a depth of 70 feet a rich ledge of ore
was encountered which averaged $38 in
gold. The ledge is about 4.. feet wide
and it haa wjell defined walls. Ie is
owned by Frank Almon and Mr. Robin
son and tbey are diligently at work de
veloping it. We shall have more to say
of this mine in onr next issue if it keeps
improving as it bas daring the past 10
Tbia new mining camp ia situated
about 1G miles northeast of Vanderbilt,
in Lincoln county, Nevada, and ia now
attracting a great deal of attention, and
there are now a number of prospectors
in the district and more going over there
every day. The general character -of
the rock is gold, which rutin very high.
One claim In the district, namely,
the Cornucopia, is owned by W. A. Mc-
Farlane and A. W. Spaulding, which is
very rich. An incline bas been sunk
upon this property to a depth of 35 feet,
in the bottom of which is three feet of
very rich ore. Man are now employed
ia erecting a whip upon the property,
and the work of development will be
pushed as speedily aa possible.
About one mile and a half south
of Orescent Wells are a number of
claims owned by Los Angeles capital
ists, and which were recently purchased
from Messrs. Dooley and Simmonde.
These mines are superintended by Mr.

East of this group ia tbe Mexican
claim, which ia understood to be very
rich. There is no work being done on
this property now, but the work will
again be resumed very shortly. Thia
claim has been worked every winter by
Mexicans in a very primitive way, and

The White Waiters' union held a
pleasant reunion last Friday evening.
Addresses were delivered by C.B. Fiske,
Homer C. Katu, M. A. White, M. Mc-
Manus and others. The 'apeechos were
interspersed with songs and instru
mental music, together with refresh
ments, liquid and solid. This union is
in a thriving condition and increasing
in numbers very rapidly. Their union
button is receiving proper recognition
at the bands of organized labor and will
materially assist the waiters. Thie craft
ia compelled to work from 12 to 14 hours
a day and seven days in a week. Au
amelioration of tbeir condition will be
one of the early considerations In this
city. Tne white waiters have succeeded
in unionizing tbe New York Kitchen

of thousands of others would mean star

Tbe Sailors' union at San Pedro indig-'

trip to become loaded with San Pedro
whisky, and ac n result much trouble
ensues. But it is utter folly to bold the
Sailors' union responsible for every petty
