PASADENA, June 24.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) The project of establishing a
woman's colege in Pasadena, mentioned
some time ago, is not dead by any means,
as a meeting of the committee held yester
day afteroon proved, at which-time Mrs. P.
C. Baker offered to give the last $10,000 of
a $150,000 endowment fund, which the com
mittee will at once take steps to raise.
The meeting was held at the board of trade
rooms and the members of the committee
present were: T. C. Hoag, chairman; H. H.

tee under the laws of the state, with the
officers as stated above, and with George
F. Kernaghan treasurer, so that the com
mittee can receive bequests for the found
ing of the institution. It should be under
stood that this institution will be In no
way antagonistic to Throop Polytechnic,
but on the coantrary will work with that
institution to give Pasadena a wider name
as an educational center, and will do for
young indies what Throop is doing par
ticularly for the young men. The school
will be established along similar lines to
those of Vassar. Smith college, Wellesely
and others of the best eastern Institutions,
and It Is expected that the most of the en
dowment will come from wealthy eastern
people, and not more than a small por
tion from residents of Pasadena and South
ern California. Pasadena has the location,
climate and natural advantages for such a
school, and It is to be hoped- that the
project can be carried otu on the scale

Of late a number of new and rich
strikes have been reported in the Rands
burg region, which impels the Miner of
that town to say:
"At no time in the history of Rands
burg has the mining outlook been so
promising. New strikes are of almost
dally occurrence, and prospectors are
in good heart and spirits. In the older
mines the work of development Is show
ing them to be richer as each foot of
depth Is attained, and it isnow conceded
by the most Conservative that our mines
will all grow better as development goes
"In the Wedge mine another rich
strike has been made. The shaft has
reached a depth of about 350 feet, and
when a shot was fired In the bottom
the long climb to a point of saftey at the
165-foot level was too much and carried
with it too great an element of danger
It was therefore decided a few days ago
to start a drift at the 315-foot level In or
der to save the long climb and make the
work of the miners less hazardous. Thi?
was accordingly done, and on Tuesday
afternoon a rich pay streak was encoun
tered that fairly made the miners' eyes
bulge out. There is hardly a limit to be
placed upon the value of this four and
one-half foot strip of ore. Nothing short
of an actual mill test will tell its value,
but there is an endless quantity of it
that will horn at the lowest $1 per ounc>-..
The strike was made in the west drift,
toward the Kinyon mine, and the rock
is practically the same as that being
taken from the'Kinyon at the 135-foot
level. The ore in the east drift isalmost
as good as that in the west.
"The No. 2 shaft of the Val Verde,
which has heretofore been known as a
low grade proposition, the ore running
only about $8 per ton, suddenly changed
front this week and is now producing ore
worth $300 per ton. The rich rock came
In on the hanging wall in the form of a:i
inverted V, and rapidly widened to
something like two feet.

Keep the Ball Rolling
The suggestion of the Los Angeles Her
ald, that California hold a bicentennial
celebration of the discovery of gold, is a

tention of the east and of the world to

during the last half century. Our coun

regions in the state, should not allow the
suggestion to lapse, and the Native
Sons should see to it that the celebra
tion Is carried out on a scale worthy of
California and Californians. Set the
ball rolling.—Grass Valley Tidings.
