Thursday on a tour of investigation to
ascertain the foundation of the recent
damaging reflections upon the camp
made by tbe San Francisco Chronicle.
As a result of this trip he is firmly of
the conviction that the future of the
camp iB most bright, that there are
many hundreds of thousands of dollars'
worth of ore buried in the hills of that
locality, and he shares >n the general
opinion tbat the article in the Chronicle

Later reports, says the Piescott Cour
ier, conlim the news of the rich strike in
the Old Reliable mining group, owned
by Bashford, Burmiater and others. It
is truly a bonanza strike. There is a 30

from $1700 in silver up.
J. W. Lankford has struck it rich on
tbe Prince Albert mine, White Hills,
says the Kingman Mineral Wealth. He
took the lease where Marshall & Evans
left oi!'. and commenced cross-cutting in
the hanging wall. Only a few feet bad
been cut when a 10-inch streak of very
rich ore was encouutered, and Mr. Lank
ford ie in a fair way of making a good
thing out of bis lease.
An eight-mule team left town this
morning, says the Prescott Journal-
Miner, loaded with a winter supply of
mining implements bound for the Lone
Pine mine of Dan O'Boyle on the Has
sayampa. Later in the day six miners
left for tbe same locality to work on this
property. The resumption of work on
this mine is another indication of not
only tbe faith there is attached to gold
mining in this section, but it shows like
wise that wherever even an old-time
gold prospect is to be found capital ia
secured to work it.
An experimental boring 2500 feet deep
: was recently made in the Witwaters
| rand (Africa) goldfield, with a view to
I testing the lay of the auriferous deposits.
I Tbe result was of the most satisfactory
character, and tbe "strike" has led to
calculations of the hidden wealth of
theee fields, and possibly the following
by Scott Alexander may be interesting
sb showing the rich possibilities of the
future: Circumference of basin, 400
miles; diameter, 127 miles; area, 12,580
equare miles, or 300,710,272,000 square
feet. Taking average thickness of eight
series ol blanket beds at six feet, equal
to 48 feet, equal 16,834,093,056,000 cubic
feet of reef, or, at 15 cubic feet to the
ton, 10,521,433,160,000 tons. At 30 shil
lings per ton, very low, value of gold
equal to £1,578,198,224,000, or one bil
lion five hundred and seventy-eight
thousand ones) hundred and ninety-six
millions two hundred and twenty-four
thousand pounds sterling. Taking the
population of Witwatersrand at 40,000
souls, this allows each £39,454,905 12b
fid. Thia is astoundingly fabulous.
Tbe Merced Star says that just at
this time there is more activity in
mining business in that county than
has been ielt in many years. There are
prospectors in almost every gulch and
on ell gold-bearing mountain Bides.
There have recently been many
moneyed men there inspecting the
mines, and it is almost certain tbat
two large mines bave changed hands.
A large quantity of machinery has just
been brought to different mines of the
county and miners appear sanguine.
According to au exchange the Bruneau
river, lying partly in the northern part
of Elko county, Nev., and distant from
the town of Elko from eighty to ninety
miles, contains very rich gold placers.
These discoveries have been m "ie in
the last few weeks. Tbe beu of the
river is from 1000 to 2000 feet below tbe
mountains on either side, and at several
points the river passes through narrow
gorges of almost perpendicular walls.
All these mountains contain gold in
paying quantities.
A rich strike iB reported in the Po
land mine, Big Bug district, says the
Prescott Courier, the ore assaying $77
gold and 48 ounces silver per ton, pay
streak 12 feet wide. Thia property ie
developed by a tunnel 500 feet in length,
the first 70 feet of which waa run in
non-paying formation, after which a
atrong ledge was struck, the ore running
from $10 to $16 per ton gold, 20 to 30
ounces silver aud from 30 to 60 per cent
lead. The mine is owned by Messrs.
Murphy and Dickey, but is being
worked under lease by O. A. Randal.
Gold mining in Arizona is attracting
more attention than usual because of
the depression in silver, says the Den
ver Republican. That territory will,
come to the front in the next few years
and will receive a great deal of immi
gration. It haß enormous resources in
both silver and gold, and it is probably
the best gold region in the United
States, although its resources in this re
spect are very little developed. An effort
will be made in the present congress to
eecure the admission of Arizona into
the union, and if it be successful it will
stimulate the growth and development
of the territory.
Bii Narrow Egctipe From Being Cre
mated .
Needles' Kye: Thousands of travelers
on the Sunta Fe route remember one of
the eights they witnessed at Needles in
the person of "Shorty," the Mohave In
dian dancer whose limbs are deformed.
He always meets the trains, and for 10
cents performs his dance, which iB gen
erally finished by some spectator throw
ing a cup or bucket of cold water on
hnm. But "Shorty" does not mind the
' water, as he considers it part of the pro
gramme, and it gives him a chance to
start up again if he can raise another 10
"Shorty" iB the only one of his tribe
who lives after having been given up to
die by the medicine man. His escape
waß a narrow one. He was supposed to
be dead, and had been placed ou the
funeral pyre and tbe lire lighted when
he came to life. He wbb rescued, but
not before he had been badly burned,
hence his distorted limbs.
The incident occurred before this
! place was settled by the whites.
' Shorty" was taken sick from some un
! known cause, and all the arts of the
medicine inau, and the assistance given
Iby the squawa could not revive him.
' Alter lying in a trance ior a number of
days he was given up for dead, but his
relatives wailed and watched until they
became tired out, and concluded that
he was no more So preparations were
made to bury the body. The pit was
dug.thelogß placed across, tbe supposed
corpse placed on the pile, the incan
tations were gone through with and the
fire kindled. The blaze enveloped the
entire mass of dry material covering the
body, when sound was heard and sud
denly the logs above the body were cast
aside and "Shorty" bounded from the
the blazing pile. His hands and feet
were badiy burned, but the head and
body being protected by heavy blanketa
did not suffer. After recovering from
their fright, for they supposed it was
"Shorty's" spirit before them, hie rela
tives took him back to camp and gava
him such care as they doemed necesßury.
"Shorty" lives today as a proof that
Indian medicine men, as well as tbeir
white compeers, can sometime be mis
taken in their diagnosis.

The Great Gathering of all Rinds of

Which Was Merer
Special correspondence id the 11 rra- :>
New York, Oct. 11.—The great ocean
race for the American cup took place
while I waa in New York, so of course 1
went out to see it. It not only gave me
a good idea of the race, but probably
was as complete a showing of marine
architecture in every way as one could
imagine. There was every kind of
steamer at the race, from steam launches
20 feet in length up to ocoan going
steamers of 4000 tons. I bad supposed,
with all the modern improvements,
that there were very few side wheel
steamers in the New York waters, but
there were dozens of them, and many
showing an unusual rate of speed. The
boats of every variety were well equipped
and well managed. The law in regard
to the inspection of steamers in New
York ia very strict, and tbe inspectors
not only frequently examine the boat
from hull to hurricane deck, but also
limit the number of passengers that can
be carried, so that on no boat was there
any crowding or discomfort. The ad
vantage of this law is very plainly seen,
not only in the increased comfort of the
passenger, but also in the degree exhib*
ited by all steamers, and the ease and
! safety with which they were handled.
I While there were frequently a dozen
boats within a biscuits toss of each
other, there were no collisions or acci
dents of any kind. When the boats
were running close together, there were
no signal whistles blown, but each pilot
seemed to know by intuition the route
and speed necessary. In addition to tho
regular pilots, there were never lees
than three or four volunteers in the
pilot house. Besides the regular fleet
of steamers, there was about a dozen
private steam yachts of the Vanderbilta
and other New Yorkers. Tlisy were
propellors of from 300 to 500 tons, of a
beautiful model, with long, projecting
bows, and looking like greybonnds.
On nearly all tbe boats there were
bands of music, ihe table." were spread
all day for dinner, and in the forward
part of the boat there was a bar which
was moderately patronized. There
were, however, none that drank to ex
cess ; and in fact the Ns* York crowds
were always pleasant and polite.
The weather, which had previously
been very stormy, became calm and
warm, so tbat the greatest difficulty
with the race was the lack of a breeze.
This race was the event oi the season,
and thousands come from all points to
New York. The boats left very early in
the morning for the racing grounds, be
ginning at 7:30 untii 9:30. Almost
every variety of steamer was pressed
into service. There were three large
ocean going steamers carrying about
1200 to 1500 passengers each, three or
four of the biggest sound boats—im
mense side-wheelers—probably the
largest boats of |his description now in
existence. There were several Coney
island and Hudson river boats; one of
these, the General Slocum, carried
2000 paasengera. There were certainly
100 steamers of all descriptions, big and
little. Then there were probably 25,000
people in attendance at the race. As
tine a Bight as was seen was this num
ber of steamera running down the river,
generally in line, two or three abreaat,
aud extending a distance of two miles.
1 happened to be on the fastest side
wheeler, and, while we passed nearly
all the boats, there were one ocean
steamer and a new sound boat (a pro
peller) that passed us, but I think they
mtißt have bad a speed of over 20 miles
an hour. It reminded me very much
of tbe old racing days on tbe Missis
sippi. Our boat got bo hot around the
smoke stack and boiler that the passen
gers wouidn't stand very close.
Kvery once in a while we would hear
the bell ring from the piiot bouse to
put on more Bteam, and the walking
beam would accelerate ita speed and two
men with oil cans were standing on the
deck where the walking-beam was, to
keep the bearings from heating. In
fact it was quite exciting till we got
down to tbe Sandy Hook lighthouse;
there the vessels all stopped their en
gines and waited for the eignal to be-
Promptly at 11:25 the gun waß fired
for tbe yachts to start. They seemed to
have on a large amount of Bails but at
the Bignal they ran up more sails until
they were perfect clouds ot canvas. The
yachts were sloop rigged, and in addi
tion to the mainsail, had a sail on the
other side called the spinnaker, which
wbb nearly as large as the mainsail. The
Vigilant had also a balloon jib, which
was it loose jib running over the end of
the jibboom to tbe top of the main
mast, and it seemed to catch a good deal
of breeze. There was a very light wind,
and at the start the American vessel
seemed to walk away from the Britisher.
All the sails drew splendidly; whereas
the Englishman didn't seem to under
stand tho art of setting Bails for a light
breeze. The yachts ran this way before
the breeze for about an hour, when the
wind, which bad been with them,
changed to the port bow. Tbe Vigilant
immediately took down her fifing jib
and hauled in her spinnaker, but,
in doing thiß, as the wind
had changed bo that it waa
blowing with tbe tide, Bwung her head
around and she began driftitig back on
her course. The Englishman waited a
little longer, then steered ao as to come
between the wind and the American
veaeel; as he did bo he hauled iv the
spinnaker. The breeze caught ell the
saila, and before the Vigilant could get
back again into the wind the Valkyrie
was over a mile in the lead. Uf course
we all felt an much depressed as we
were elated at the beginning of the
The vessels continued at about thiß
relative distance to the end of the
course, 15 milea out, where the British
er rounded the Btakeboat in hue style,
20 minutes ahead, amidst the cheers of
25,000 people and the screeching of the
steam whistles. Tna Vigilant came up
20 minutes later, but she rounded very
slowly and did not eeem to be as easily
managed bb her opponent.
Of course she had as much cheering
as the ntiier boat, and all the bands
played Hail Columbia. There was one
thing tint consoled the Americans,
however, and that was that in this titst
dave sail the entire conrso of 30 miles
had to be covered iv Biz boura or else it
waa no race, and of coo tbe as it had
taken (our hours ami a haif to make
half tho distance, there was nu possi
bility of making the return voyage in
two hours. Thie proved to he the fact,
and after the boats bad made
about six miles of the return
voyage, each of tbe yachts ran
down their sails tnd it was declared
no race. All the steamers which bad
been running in two parallel lines on
each side of the yachts, about half a
mile away from them, aud sometimes
crowding them a little, so that it looked
like a floating city with a street in the
center down which the yachts were sail
ing, then put on all steam and started
for New York, to miles away.
It waa then a race For home, and we
had a good opportunity of seeing what
each boat could do. There were two
steam launches that were said to be able
to stesm at the rate of 30 miles an hour.
They gave us an exhibition of tbeir
speed, stemming completely around the
fastest vessels, and iv place of sailing as
an ordinary vessel does, sometimes
seemed to dive through a wave, and at
other times to jump over them. The
steam yachts which we thought would
show a very high rate of speed, did not
keep up with the fast sound boats.
Some of the sidewbeelers had on so
much steam that the water came out at
ttie top of the paddle boxes in a perfect
Niagara. With this class of vessel, after
they reach a certain rate of speed, the
paddles seem to lose their bold on the
water. The propellers were the fastest
boats in the fleet. Lack of breeze, while
it prevented a decisive race, gave us
some valuable pointers on the speed of
the boats; and it seemed to all of us that
in the event of light breezes the Amer
ican boat would win. The En
glish never seem to lose sight
of the idea tbat in making a
boat it must be substantial
enough to withstand a hurricanes,
whereas the American builder builds
solely for speed, knowing that there is
very little risk of heavy weather in sail
ing over the courses usually taken by
yachts. It iB possible, also, that the
voyage of the Valkyrie from England
over to America, and the heavy weather
that she encountered, may have had
something to do with her losing tbe
race. In any event, tbe English may
pride themselves on the fact tbat their
boat is a stanch, sea-going craft, and
was only beaten on the last day of the
race by 46 seconds. Viatok.
The Coccus Microbe and It* Deadly
Work on the Membranes of the
Kye—Some Interesting;
San Francisco Call: The application
o( bacteriology to diseases of the eye is
attracting considerable attention at the
east and in Kurope. It appears that
from 25 to 40 per cent of the cases oi
blindness in thia country are dne to the
malignant action of a minute microbe
which physicians call a coccus. Thie
microbe, which is sometimes described
aa a plant and sometimes as an insect,
quite often appears on the conjunctiva
or mucous membrane of tbe eye a few
ilavs or hours after the birth of an in
fant. If let alone it paepagates rapidly,
overspreads the eyeball and destroys
the organ by shutting off its supply of
nutriment. When it has reached this
stage, tbe disease —then called ophthal
mia—is incurable, and its victims are
classed as blind from birth. But if tbe
coccus ia resolutely attacked when it
first makes ita appearance it ie extir
pated without difficulty, and a patient
who, but for medical treatment, would
bave become hopelessly blind, retains
his eight.
The body of eminent and public spir
ited men who see to it that tbe legisla
ture of the state of New York keeps
pace with the march of science, lately
secured the passage of an act which re
quires midwives, under Bevere penalties,
to report every case of inflamed eves or
reddiah eruption over the eyelids of
new-born children. Such cases are
treated by physicians in the employ of
the board of health, and it rarely hap
pens that the treatment fails to exter
minate the parasite. It is, of couree,
more economical for the city to employ
physicians to preserve the eyesight of
the children of the poor than to support
them afterwards in blind asylums.
The eye ia subject to a variety of dis
eases which have thus far not been
traced to a bacterial origin.
Such are the various forme of conjunc
tivitis, cataract, etc. The opthalmia so
prevalent in Egypt and India, and
which ia known as purulent opthalmia,
ia treated by the astringents which, for
aught we know, were used by the Pha
raohß. This is caused by the admission
o! malignant matter into the eye, and it
is rare tbat both eyes are saved after it
has set in. By a heneticient disposition
of providence its ravages are generally
arreeted when tbe Bight of one eye has
been destroyed, co tbat the Egyptians
have sometimes been known as the one
eyed people. Tbat form of opthalmia
ia not common in this country. Tbe
enemy we have to contend with is the
It would be a good idea for other states
to follow the example of New York and
to endeavor to extirpate the meat fruit
ful cause ol blindneas. There are in
this country about 50, OIK! blind persons,
most of whom are cared for in blind
asylums or in other benevolent institu
tion-' ; there are less than 100 in tbia otate,
30 being about tbe average nun.oer of
patients at Berkeley. But even this
number involves a serious diminution of
the potential force of the community.
Under the stimulus of the humane ten
dencies of the age in which wo live
much haa been done to ameliorate the
condition of the blind.
Tbey have been taught to read ; they
have been educated in mueic; the de
privation of the moat valuable of the
aeneeE haa often appeared to aharpen
their wits. But etill a blind pereon ia
an object of pity; usefulness ia not alto
gether beyond his reach, but it is only
attained by phenomenal and almost
miraculous good fortune. There iB
something pathetic in the fact that the
beat occupation which haa been i'ouud
for the blind people at Berkeley is
broom making.
As a general rule people do not treat
their eyea fairly. They overtax them
aud then wonder that they fail in their
duty. Fen eyes can stand the strain of
working by artificial light; still fewer
can perform their functions in eemi
obacurity. When in old age the eye
night begins to fail people resort to
glasaea, which repair the deficiency.
But glasses are en artificial stimulant
which is apt to be followed by reaction.
They should not be used except in cases
of necessity. Many a man has gone
blind from wearing powerful spectacles
in seaaon and out of season.
What tha Animals Know About Fine
Moreno Indicator: "Did you ever
■cc a pack of coyotes a-ruatlin' for
grub?" asked an old miner who stopped
at Hotel de Moreno one night last week.
We said we never bad, and begged to
be enlightened.
"I've lived on the desert for nigh onto
thirty years," be resumed, "and seed
many a queer Bight, but coyotes a-ruat
l'n' fcr grub beats them all. Them
animals are as well trained as any body
of soldiers ever was under Oineral
Grant. They elect a captain, whether
by drawing straws or by ballot, I don't
recollect oil-hand. Just at daylight a
reveille calls the pack together and tbey
come yelpin' and howlin' over the
desert like a lot of things possessed,
their appetites sharpened by the crisp
air and eager for their reg'lar diet of
jerked rabbit meat. The avant couriers
sniff atound among the sagebrush and
greasewood, while the rest of the band
form into a big circle, sometimes
spreadin' out on the plain over a radius
of two or three miles. The couriers
head a jack-rabit in the circle and the
coyote nearest takes up the chase.
"You know a jackrabbit can run ten
times faster than a coyote, and when
trie one in pursuit gets tuckered out, the
next one takes up the chase, and so on
till the jack falls down dead from ex
haustion. Then the whole pack leap
on to him, their jaws snappin' like
eheablades in sbearin' time. Then
when the jack is disposed of another
reveille ia sounded and the pack again
form into a circle, and the circus is kept
tip until every one of the yelpin', yeller
divils has satisfied his appetite, some
times killin' hundreds of j«cks and
cottontails fur one meal, fur a coyote
con eat a jack as big as himself and then
look as if he was clean starved to death.
"I was clean through the late un
pleasantness under Gineral Grant and I
know what scientific generalin' is, and
them coyotes know as much as any
soldiers that ever lived about army
tactics. The commander-in-chief is
usually the oldest ooyote in the pack,
and he sits on a knoll where lie can
give orders to his lieutenants and aids,
and what they don't know about am
buscades, raaneuverin' and held tactics
ginerally, ain't worth knowin'."
and is tired, will find a special help

Something else that pays the
dealer better, may be offered as
" just as good." Perhaps it is for
