for the payment of certificates to the
amount of $457fi.05.

would have to languish in jail.

SAN BERNARDINO. Nov. 22.—(Reg

San Bernardino may occasionally make
a faux pas in the matter of a criminal, j
' but they usually get there again and j
, make amends for It. Some weeks since

I the hold-up away back in ",>3, was j
traced to this city, where he has been an ,
■ honored citizen for years, but Nemesis t
! was on his trail. He wns located, and ]
jan officer came after him, but. Ignoring 1
i that San Bernardino was a county seal'
lof considerable Importance, the fresh
official went through to Los Angeles and .
worked tho case from there. . On notlfl- 1
cation of what was wanted, the San tier
nardiho officer rounded up the man
wanted, Noah Lee, and held him for tho
tenderfoot official, who was having a
good tint" where he was. and as he held
cthe warrant in his pocket there was no j
authority to place Lee in Jail, and an of
cer was detailed to hold him under sur
veillance until the warrant came. This
watchful care was a little slack at times,
as the suspect showed no Inclination to
avert his fate, and when the officer went
into a barber shop for a shave, and his
prisoner said he would walk around on
the outside, nothing was thought of it
until, on coming out, the bird had flown.
Officers have been on his trail, however
and he was brought In yesterday and
sent on to Los Angeles, from whence he
will probably be taken to Texas for trial.
He was brought before Fnlted States

KERN COUNTY
JOHANNESBURG
JOHANNESBURG, Nov. 21.—(Regu
lar Correspondence.) Work on the
Kramer and Randsburg railroad has
! been somewhat retarded owing to the
delay in the shipment of ties. The con
struction camp has been moved to near
the St. Elmo mine and in a short time
will be brought to the suburbs of Jo
hannesburg. Word had gone out that
the construction crew would not be al
lowed to camp in the district as long as
Chinese were employed to do the cook
ing, representatives of the miners
waited upon the contractors yesterday
and Informed them that this report was
erroneous and that everything would be
done to help instead of retard the work.
Work on the different mines Is being
pushed, and quite a little assessment
work Is being done on the various claims
in the district. The ownership of a great
many claims will be void after the Ist
of January unless $100 worth of work Is
done before that time. The new law I
requiring $50 worth of work to be done
within sixty days after the first notice I
of location Is a good one. Under Hie
old law many have been acting the
"dog In the manger" with some of the
beat claims in the district, and the i
worst of It Is they have until January,
IS3B. before they will be forced to do de
velopment work or give them up to those
who will.
Word has been brought In from the
Radamacher district that a big strike
has Just been made In the Radamacher
mine. It was said the ore would run
from $900 up.
Harry Green Is just in from the Slate
range and reports the mining outlook
for that sec tion to be good. On the Haf
ferd and Bowman properties the ledge
on the surface Is fifteen feet wide and
can be traced the entire length of their
claims. A 100-foot shaft was sunk be
side the ledge and a cross-cut made. At
this point the foot and hanging walls are
well-deflned and the ore between free
of waste. An assay made from sam
ples of ore taken from both walls at In
tervals of a foot clear across the ledge
went $171 per ton. Joseph Green has a
claim In the same locality which is be
ing opened up by a tunnel, the ore at the
surface going $0 in gold and $5 in silver.
He has also found a good spring of wa
ter on one of his claims.
The development of the mines in the
adjoining ranges means much to this
section, for when the railroad reaches
here this will be the distributing point
for all the surrounding country.
The Garlock and Smith mills at Gar
lock are pounding away this week on O.
B. ore. On Wednesday another rich
strike was made at that mine, the ore 1
running In the neighborhood of $100 per
ton.
Some very rich ore was taken out ot
the Alameda mine this week. It Is said
this company will purchase the dry con
centrator plant recently erected here
and use It for the reduction of the Ala
meda ore alone.
The Gold Bar, owned by George B. (
Curtis and H. E. Hollls, has one of the
prettiest ledges to be seen in the district.
This mine is opened up by 120-foot shaft
and three drifts. In one of these drifts
a four-foot ledge of $25 rock was uncov
ered. The distance between the foot and
hanging wall Is six feet, a scam making
a clear line of demarcation between the
two feet of waste and the four feet of
ore.
Tho Butte Is taking out large quanti
ties of paying ore again. This Is one of
the oldest mines In the district and its
former owners took out $70,000 In gold In
a year's time. The present management
has had to contend with the mismanage
ment of the former and has had to do a
great deal of work to got the mine In
paying shape.
The Kinyon Is demonstrating the fact
that depth adds to the value of mining
property in the Rand district. They are
taking out very rich ore at the present
time.
A ball was given at Hotel Johannes
burg last Saturday evening, to celebrate
the near approach of the railroad. An
other will be given when the line Is
completed. On Thanksgiving eve the
Miners' union will give a ball In Rands
burg. It will probably be a successful
and enjoyable afTnir.

mine and Miss Belle Canawan of Ontario
