A REAL BAD MAN
An Arizona Desperado Arrested at
Needles
BAN BERNARDINO, May I.—News has
just been received here of the capture of a
noted criminal by Deputy Sheriff F. It.
Keyes of Needles, the prisoner being the
notorious outlaw and all-around bad man
Bill Evans, wanted at Tombstone, Ariz.,
for various crimes.
He was pointed out to Keyes as a man
who might be in demand somewhere, and
the latter immediately communicated with
Sheriff Scott White of Tombstone, giving a
description of the man, and received word
who the. fellow was, stating that he was a
much-wanted man, and that he would give
$100 for his arrest, but at the same time
sending back word that the fellow was a
desperate man and to bo very careful in
the attempt to take him.
Keyes. on receipt of this Information,
feeling sure he had the right man, took his
eawed-off shotgun and went looking for
Evans, and the latter gave in as he looked
clown the barrels ot the gun. He was at
once heavily Ironed and strongly guarded,
awaiting the arrival of the sherifi from
Tombstone.
Bill Evans held up a faro bank at Blsbce,
Ariz., about eighteen months ago, was cap
tured and got ten years ln the penitentiary
for it, but escaped from the sheriff while
the latter was taking him to Yuma by
jumping out of the car window, although
handcuffed and shackled at the time.
Hence the sheriff is quite anxious to get
his fingers on the outlaw again.
The person who gave the pointer to Offi
cer Keyes as to the man had been ap
proached by the latter to assist ln a hold
up of a business house at Needles, but had
declined tho offer.
The Tombstone sheriff Is expected at
Needles today to secure his man, who was
captured Saturday night by the intrepid
Keyes.
STILL TEN SHORT
Various Matters of Interest in San
Bernardino
SAN BERNARDINO, May I.—There Is
a determined struggle to fill Company X
to the full 106 men and officers to go to the
front and also to leave at least half as
many more enlisted men here to keep the
company name before the public and re
tain the armory and accoutrements of the
company intact. Tho roll of volunteers
now numbers 96 men and the work to se
cure the other ten men before being called
to tho front is still kept up but without the
success the boys think should be seen.
There are about thirty others who belong
to the company but who will remain here.
It Is hoped that the Sunday and Monday
work will fill the ranks of the volunteers
and possibly the others.
There has been a struggle among the fac
tions of the Democracy of San Bernar.
lino for the appointment of one of their
lumber to the position of asylum trustee
on tho expiration of tho term of H. L.
Drew, which occurs this month, and the
tight has been a bitter one. The favorite
candidate has been E. E. Katx, but the op
position to him has been strong and the
cars of Gov. Budd have been bombarded
with shot and shell on the subject fur the
past yenr. Yesterday the Democratic
county central committee met to settle
the fight If possible, and after the usual
resoluting they passed a motion indors
ing E. E. Katz for the position and at one c
telegraphed it to the governor. Although
the projected nominee claims to be a solid
gold Democrat the question of ilnance did
not seem to cut much figure or else.' tho
war has blown up that Issue with the roar
of its bombs and rapid-lire guns. Wh»n
the Populists and silver Republicans came
to ask about tho action of the committee
they wero told it was none of their funeral,
and quiet reigned.
While the train robbers, Clyde Benning
ton, Theodore Chllson and A. Cashner, now
In jail at Los Angeles, may be tried before
the United States court for disturbing the
mails, this action will not stop tho actim
of the county officials, who will insist upon
trying them for holding up a train and wil
perhaps give them a life sentence in addi
tion to the few years they are liable lo
secure from the United States court.
Which trial will take precedence has not
been determined yet, but the county will
Insist upon Its rights.
The rain continues to fall as it has for
the past four days and the amount has
reached ,7*» of an Inch. There are no hard
showers but a fine, misty rain that re
minds one of the precipitation after each
battle of the war of thirty-five years ago.
If this thing is to continue the war may
be a blessing in disguise.
POMONA GOSSIP
The Victorious College Boys—The Wei-
come Rainfall
POMONA, May I.—Pomona college is
again victorious, and this will make five
successive years in which the boys have
carried home the intercollegiate trophy.
Pomona people are Justly proud of the
athletic supremacy of the college boys,
and congratulations are now the order of
the day. All felt confident of victory, but
the record established by H. L. Avery,
whose home, by tho way, is in this city,
exceeded all expectations.
There are broad grins on the faces of our
ranchers, occasioned by the timely rain
fall, over half an inch having fallen up to
noon today. While the rain comes a little
lato ln tho season, still it will materially
benefit the crops ln this valley, especially
where the barley Is still green. With hay
at J22 per ton, It will not require many
hundred pounds to the acre to make har
vesting pay. So scarce Is this commodity
In the valley, especially alfalfa, that the
feed men again raised the price |1 per ton
yesterday. Notwithstanding the many
acres of fine alfalfa fields between here and
here and Chino, not a bale of alfalfa was on
the market yesterday, and importations
from South Riverside had to be resorted
to. The rain will have little effect upon
the market, because, 1 although It will
greatly increase the pasturage, the avail
able supply Is undoubtedly cornered.
Sinco J. R. Noblo has seen fit to surren
der his contract on the Sisters' school, the
architect has been endeavoring to let the
carpenter work enMrely separate from the
rest and thus avoid any further complica
tions. F. D. Groen and P. Doyle are figur
ing on the Job. Work, however, on the
foundation Is being pushed and no delay
will result. The reason given by Mr. Noble
for his action Is his Inability to got bonds
from sub-contractors and thus secure him
self.
The children were out ln force last night
and many amusing Incidents are related
In connection with the May baskets, this
morning, Mrs. Hill, wife of postmaster
Hill, being made the victim of a very beau
tiful May basket—with a string tied to it.
As she stooped to pick it up the beautiful
floral vision disappeared in the darkness of
the night. Shn received, however, two
pretty floral tributes.
Senator Androus will be a candidate for
re-election.
Company D Is ready and anxiously
awaiting marching orders; in fact, the
boys say this suspense is harder on them
than actual hostilities. Tho rumor That
Cnllfornla volunteers will be retained in
this state is not at all pleasing to them,
as their blood is up and they want to smel!
powder.
Hon. O. W. Merrill has been absent the
past week in San Francisco.
Rev. P. J. Fisher attended the Cathedral
parish fair In Los Angeles the latter part
of last week.
WILL TAKE OFF TRAINS
The Southern Pacific Finds Los Ala-
mltos Unprofitable
ANAHEIM, May I.—As the machinery
in the sugar factory at Los Alamitos has
been placed in position and no beets will
be hauled over the track this season, the
Southern Pacific Is likely to withdraw its
train service between Anaheim and Los
Alamitos and adopt some other means for
conveying the mall between the two towns,
Tho trains are run at present at a dead
loss.
A proposition will be submitted at the
next meeting of the city trustees with a
view of extending the electric light system
to Fullerton, placing the latter town on the
same footing with Anaheim as to prices.
The Increased consumption of lights will
reduce the prices in Anaheim from 15 to 25
per cent. As Fullerton cannot afford an
electric plant of its own and is very anx
ious to be electric lighted the proposal will
no doubt be carried.
Nearly half an Inch of rain fell on Friday
night. It will bo a great help to the corn
fields and guarantees a good crop of stock
beots besides keeping the pastures green
for a couple of months longer.
F. J. Littlefield turned up from Mexico
the other day and was Immediately placed
under arrest on an old charge of attempt
ing to shoot. The witnesses against him
had great difficulty in recalling the inci
dents connected with the affair and Little
field was released.
Mrs. Shanley and Miss Hirschman were
down from Los Angeles last week visiting
friends In Anaheim.
Louis Miller, W. A. Newberry, C. Bruce
and E. P. Fowler are fitting up a tent with
a view to spending a few weeks ln the
mountains.
The young ladles of Anaheim are taking
the first steps ln the new order of things
by announcing a dance under the auspices
early ln May.
A number of Anahelmers are chartering
a ship to bring cargoes of hay from Oregon.
Santa Ana parties refused $10 a ton for hay
last week.
The failure of tho artesian wells is so
general in the western part of the county
will serve to call public attention to the
enormous and useless waste of water
caused by keeping the wells constantly
flowing when there Is no use made of the
water. Farmers are now finding to their
cost that there Is such a thing as running
the artesian well dry.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, MAY 2, 1898
WAS WEARY OF LIFE
MRS. EVA LEONARD SUICIDES
AT SAN BERNARDINO
She Was an Invalid and Had Been
Somewhat Erratic for
Some Time
SAN BERNARDINO. May t—Mrs. Eva
Leonard, astcnographcr in the law office
of E. R. Annable, shot herself with a re
volver Saturday evening, just before 7
oclock, and died from the self-lnfllcted
wound this morning. The deed was done
In the office, ln the presence of Mr. Anna
ble, but so quickly that he was unable to
prevent the catastrophe. Tho deceased
( nme here several years ago with Mr. An
nable and family, and was something of
an invalid from consumption, although able
to attend to her duties in the office, where
she was his stenographer and typewriter.
Phe was taking considerable medicine, and
with it became somewhat addicted to stim
ulants.
On the day before the fatal deed was com
mitted she lost a pot dog, which caused her
to be very despondent, but on Saturday she
recovered the pet and in her joy may have
taken too much from her favorite bottle.
She was out driving with Mrs. Annable
towards the foothills in the afternoon, and
on their return Mrs. Leonard drove the
span of horses around the city alone, in
stead of going with them direct to the
stable, and people noticed her queer act
lons. Mr. Annable heard of this and start
ed out to find her, meeting her on her way
upstairs to the office. What passed be
tween them is not known, but he insisted
that she go up to his house, where sho
made her home, although she occupied
rooms In the Postofflce block, ln which the
business office was located.
After reaching tho office, Mr. Annable.
who knew her situation, insisted on her
going to the house, and she replied that
she would in a moment, and, stepping
through an open door into the private of
fice, she took out the revolver from v
drawer and Instantly fired the fatal shot,
which struck her in the breast, passing
through near tho heart. She lingered all
night in great agony, and died this morn
ing.
The deceased was a widow, and has a
grown-up son living In the east, who was
here on a visit a few months since. Al
though she has been here for several years,
the deceased had but few friends, or ac
quaintances, even, beyond the circle in
which she came In contact In her dally
duties. The caso Is ln the hands of the
coroner.
PATRIOTIC FERVOR
Santa Monica Supplies Ninety-Two
Volunteers at One Meeting
SANTA MONICA, May I.—The people ot
Santa Monica have at last shown them
selves capable of being enthusiastic. Santa
Monica audiences are noted for slowness
in expressing any emotions publicly, but
the great overflow meeting held In the
Methodist church last night proved that
just as patriotic hearts, full of love of
country and brimming over with enthusi
asm, beat ln her environments as in any
little city throughout the United States.
The meeting was announced for S oclock,
but by 7 nearly every seat was occupied,
and half an hour later found scarcely
standing room. It was the largest assaru-.
blage ever gathered under one roof in th«
city's history.
Tho church was lavishly decorated with
flags and bunting, with ropes of red and
white roses and English ivy, draped over
tho arches of the sliding partitions.
Stacked arms, topped with flags, nnd sev
eral Jardinieres of red lilies, with "Remem
ber the Maine" lettered in evergreen, in the
background. The whole formed a brilliant
sceno, the like of which had never been
seen by the majority of those present.
Gov. Smith and staff of tho Soldiers'
Homo, were present, and occupied seats
on tho platform, with promnlent citizens
of the city and the Home band.
After a selection by the band and a pray
er by the pastor of the church. Rev. Wues
tonberg, Frederick H. Rindge was unani
mously elected chairman of the meeting,
which he proceeded to call to order amid
a deafening burst of applause, proving tho
appreciation of the choice. The gavel used
by Mr. Rindge was made of a piece of the
elm tree under which George Washington
stood when he assumed command of tho
American army.
Capt. Godden and Gen. Clark of the homo
made excellent speeches, being continual
ly interrupted by hearty bursts of ap
plause. Chairman Rindge followed with
a speech full of patriotism, which roused
every young man present to the oppor
tunity of the occasion, which may never
come again, of offering his services to his
country. Gov. Smith made a liery speech,
which was very well received and stirred
the audience deeply.
The chairman again came forward and
presented the volunteer roll, to which
were already signed twenty-live names,
and invited the addition of others. The
Home band struck up "Marching Through
Georgia," and tho first volunteer stepped
forward. Ho was greeted with cheer upon
cheer, and was followed by sixty-seven
others, in ones, twos, threes und squads,
every one of whom was loudly applauded.
The band played through the list of pa
triotic selections, and when several Span-
ish-American lads, who did not look to be
IS, marched manfully to the front, the
cheering was deafening, and flags, hand
kerchiefs, hats, etc., were fluttered by
the excited multitude. At the close ninety
two names were on the list. At a late hour
the grandest meeting ever held here came
to a close, every one feeling better for
having witnessed so inspiring a demonstra
tion.
A meeting has been called for tomorrow
(Monday) evening, when steps will be
taken to organize a company, elect offi
cers, etc., and Santa Monicans now feel
that, let come what may, she will have at
least a Home guard.
A Gentle Hint
With all due respect to the son of his
father, the Bee suggests that the people
of California desire a Californian to be
their representative ln the upper house
of congress—some one who has done some
thing for the state to entitle him to recog
nition of this kind; at any rate, a man who
has accomplished something somewhere,
no matter where, to give him the right to
public approval and Indorsement—not a
man whose only public merit seems to lie
ln the fact that he had a great soldier
for a father, a fact over which he had no
control and for the existence of which he
Is entitled to no credit.—Sacramento Bee.

CHEERS FOR THE FLAG
OUTBURST OF ENTHUSIASM AT
BAN DIEGO
Thousands of Patriotic Citizens Crowd
the Streets —Political Forecast.
Want to Serve the People
SAN DIEGO, May I.—With a steady,
mizzling rain falling, several thousand
people assembled on the public square
last night to participate In the meeting
arranged of those who had signed the call
volunteering their services in case of need
for home protection. The gathering was
one of the largest ever witnessed here,
even under more ravorable circumstances,
and when the City Guard band struck up
a patriotic air the patriotic enthusiasm
of the gathering was fully aroused and
cheer after cheer for the Stars and
Stripes echoed throughout the city. After
a brief delay In arranging the order of
march the procession, at least 700 strong,
and headed by a platoon of mounted po
licemen and the City Guard, the parade
passed along the principal Btreets.
Throughout the line of march crow,".s
packed the streets and sidewalks, cheer
ing the procession as It passed along. The
return was made to the public square,
where the procession dispersed to meet
again in the Second street armory. There
sevoral patriotic speeches were delivered
by Mayor Keed and other prominent citi
zens, ending with a permanent organiza
tion of the San Diego minute men. At the
request of the meeting Mayor Reed will
ask the governor to furnish 500 stands of
arms for the company and arrangements
were made for the officers to drill squads
of tho company three times a week.
Attending to Politics
While the average citizen is supposed
to be absorbed in the issues that may re
sult from the war, there are many who
have not forgotten the fact that an elec
tion Is rapidly approaching. Tha Repub
lican forces are especially active, and
have an abundance of candidates. At the
same time the free silver forces are well
advanced with their plans. The Repub
licans will, of course, make their principal
tight in state affairs, with 17. S. Grant for
the United States senate. W. B. Guy Is
an active candidate for the nomination of
attorney general and his record while a
member of the legislature will serve him
in good stead when the critical time comes.
Mayor Reed will probably be a candidate
for the nomination of congressman from
this district on the Republican ticket, and
the same party has several aspirants for
the state senate. The most formidable can
didate so far put forward by the Repub
licans Is M. L. Ward, and the changes
are that he and B. A. Thomas, who will
represent the free silver forces, will con
test for this honor. For assemblyman
from this city the contest will probably be
between A. C. Mills, fusion, and Lewis M.
Works, Republican. As they are both
brilliant members of tbe legal profession,
and either would make a representative
that would do the city honor. For the
principal county offices Frank M. Jen
nings, Republican, and John Gray, Demo
cratic, will be the representatives of their
parties for the office of sheriff; for dis
trict attorney the Democrats will make
their choice between H. S. Utley und A.
H. Sweet and the Republicans will most
likely put 1. L. Lewis up as their canut
dato; for treasurer, B. J. Dowell will rep
resent the Democrats and J. W. Thomp
son the Republicans; the office of tax col
lector will be contested for by J. C. Ar
nold, free sliver Republican, and F. A.
Cornell, Republican; John P. Burt, Demo
crat, and Chester Green, Republican, will
be the candidates of their respective par
ties for assessor.
MINES AND MINERS
A new mining company has recently been
organised in Los Angeles to develop a min
ing property along the Colorado river In
Arizona, about seventy miles below the
Needles, at a point known as Gler's Land
ing.
On March 3d last G. M. Giffen of the firm
of Cortelyou & Giffen mado a trip of in
vestigation and formed a high opinion ot
tha prospects and richness of the mineral
In the claims. To be sure of the merits of
the claims, L. B. Spauldlng, a miner of
twenty years' experience, was sent down.
He returned last week, reporting good
ledges of rich ore of easy acess, and recom
mended the establishment of a stamp mill.
A company has been formed, consisting
of Dr. W. H. Gler, W. H. Gier, Jr., G. M.
Giffen, G. A. Cortelyou, Newel Ralphs and
Dr. J. It. Trout. A stamp mill has been or
dered built in this city, and will be shipped
to the Needles, where a fiat boat will be
built of lumber suitable to use in erecting
the mill, and the plant will be floated down
the river to the mines. L. B. Spauldlng will
be the mill superintendent and will erect
the mill as soon as possible.—Los Angele.s
Review.
Brown Made a Strike
Walter A. Brown, a real estate man cf
Los Angeles, who has been In the Mesquite
country for more than a year, and who has
acquired a number of properties there, has
recently made a very rich strike on one of
his claims, on which he is down but a short
distance. He is confident that he has final
ly made a good strike, and Is now in Los
Angeles or some other Southern California
town enlisting capital for the development
of the claim.—Yuma Sun.
A Mine Above Ground
The tailing-pond of the old Cargo Muchn
cho mine, ln San Diego county, which Wil
liam D. Luce, the well-known assayer,
bought for a royalty of 10 cents per ton
from Hiram W. Blalsdell of this place, Is
proving it rich Investment for the deserving
man who had the courage to back his Judg
ment and tests In the face of repeated dis
couragements from able mining men who
had had experience at the Cargo Mucha-1
cho. Mr. Luce was convinced of the thor
oughness and reliability of his own tests
by assay, and ventured sufficient capital
for the erection of a cyanide plant of 100
tons capacity. For over a year Mr. Luce,
assisted by his wife and Bon. themselves
expert metallurgists, has been quietly man
aging a business which has undoubtedly
netted handsome returns, though not of the
magnificent proportions set forth ln an ex
aggerated account which appeared in a re
cent Issue of a San Diego paper. There are
about 100,000 tons of tailings, and they con
tain about $2 in gold per ton. The present
plant enables the working of 100 tons per
day. Mr. Luce secures the water necessary
for the operation of the plant from the
Colorado river, ten miles away, through
the old Cargo Mucbacho pipe line.—Tuma
Sun.
A Sidewalk Mine
The mine In the middle of the sidewalk
on Butte avenue, Randsburg, owned by A.
Anderson, Julius Goldsmith, C. A. Fowler
and K. Callahan, is showing up better all
the time. The shaft Is down forty feet.
Three tons of ore milled at Cuddyback gave
seven ounces of, gold, and another mill run
Is about ready. This will make the third
rich run.—Johannesburg Rand.
Mazeppa's New Owners
The Sonora Democrat says: A company
has at last secured control of the famous
Mazeppa mine on the mother lode. The
property Is the south extension of the rich
Jumper, near Stent, and is held high In the
estimation of all mining men. The mini
was owned by Judge W. N. Harris, and
many efforts have been made ln the past
few years to buy, bond or lease it. One
offer of $100,000 ln cash was refused without
a moment's hesitation. The new company
is headed by Dew R. Oliver of Stockton
and Includes Thomas A. Hender of Sonora,
W. H. Stroub of Stockton, David R. Oliver
of Sonora and Geo. L. North of San Fran
cisco.
No Use for the Yukon
There are six men who care very little
for the excitement and boom of the Yukon
They have a prospect twenty miles north of
Daggett, from which they have brought in
samples of rock assaying as high as $Dil.
There have been over seventy assays made,
that have run from $5 to $017 to the ton.
One mill run of fifty pounds of ore netted
$16.32. They have a ledge from five to fif
teen feet in thickness, and are down only
eighty feet, Some of the rock, to use a
miner's expression, was "lousy with gold "
This property is causing considerable ex
citement in the locality known as Paradise
Springs. One of the fortunate men is W. J.
Beamer of San Bernardino, the other five
being Orln Staples, Y. P., Dan and Fellz
Prlcards and C. L. Lozano of Victor.—San
Bernardino Times-Index.
The Iron Mountain District
This section of the desert has never had
so many miners and prospectors at work
as at the present time, and development
work will be carried on in many of the
mines throughout the summer regardless
of the hot weather.
At the Iron Chief are being erected build •
ings for the accommodation of the men, as
o. protection from the hot sun. The main
shaft on this property Is now down two
hundred feet, and there are several shafts
of lesser depth. From thirty-five to forty
men arc employed,in three shifts, grading,
taking out ore and putting up the buildings.
North of the Iron Chief and in tho vi
cinity of Placer canyon, are several large
Iron ledges, showing large bodies of ore
similar to that of the Iron Chief. Most of
these Iron ledges are highly colored with
copper. Across tho small valley to the
north of Eagle mountain, In that part of
the district nown as The Plntos, great
activity prevails. Not only are the dry
washers reaping a harvest, but the quartz
claims are looming up ln great shape.
A. C. Goucher of the Gold Nugget has
two parallel veins on the same location.
He has a thirty-five-foot shaft on each
ledge. Mr. Goucher has just completed an
arrastra, and is now working several tons
of this ore. Near the Gold Nugget lies the
Desert King mine. This shaft Is one foot
and over, and Is well defined. The ore Is
a beautiful blue, copper-stained, honey
combed quartz. A tunnel is in one hundred
and seventy-five feet and a shaft is down
eighty-live feet, all in ore. The mine is
owned by Walter E. Lee and W. A. Hlnk
ley of San Bernardino and W. E. Cutn
mings of Los Angeles.—San Bernardino
Times-Index.
A Oood Run
C. A. and J. M. Wangaman, owners of the
well-known Mayflower and other mines of
Greenhorn district, brought ln by wagon
yesterday twenty-ono pounds of gold bul
lion from the Mayflower, valued at $4100.
It was taken from the north side of the
claim at the two hundred-foot level, and
went $40 to the ton. In conversation with
a Mirror representative, J. M. Wangaman
stated that they have recently struck $60
ore ln the same shaft, and that it Is improv
ing In quality as greater depth Is attained.
—Bakersfleld Mirror.
High Grade Ore
Writlng from Greenhorn, a correspond
ent of tho Bakersfleld Echo says:
"Another very Important factor can be
mentioned: the high-grade oro here. When
we look to other localities and find them
working away, year after year, and mak
ing a protlt out of ore that yields from $3
to $7 per ton, and to other localities, where
they speak with pride of their high-grade
ores, ranging from $10 to $20 a ton, we can
more readily understand why Kern county
has mado her present progress. Her ores
are of a still higher grade; so high, in fact,
that many of the reports that are sent ln
are almost beyond belief. It is seldom that
we hear of mill runs of less than $30 per
ton, and that usually from free milling,
without any attention paid to concentra
tion of sulphurets or the loss thus entailed;
$50 to $75 per ton Is frequently reported,
and all this without assorting the ore.
"The writer doesn't claim that Green
horn is the best mining district ln the coun
ty, but he does claim for it a place among
the best, for this reason: the mines are ex
tensive, unbroken, enlarged as developed,
high grade, very numerous and comapra
tively free milling."
Good Results at Defiance
The assays made on ore from the differ
ent ledges running through tho Defiance
district show the ore to he remarkably
rich, particularly in copper, gold and silver.
It Is proposed to send several carloads of
tho ore to the Shelby smelter at San Fran
cisco as soon as possible, for a thorough
test.
Everyone who visits the canyon is sur
prised at the depth and width of the ledges,
and notices that all the claim-holders are
doing a vast amount of work on their prop
erty. One of the miners Interested in th?
district furnishes the following informa

tlon concerning the work on the different
mines:
On the Lorraine, owned by J. L. Todd,
a twenty-seven-foot shaft has been run
through a rich body of ore, reaching water
level.
Botterel & Co. have a fifty-foot tunnel on
the Black Horse and Dandy mines.
L. J. Cromblo has been taking some very
good rock out of the Ida Alia. He has run
a tunnel in forty-eight feet.
The Newton mine, owned by Lazenby &
McDonald, yields ore which assays $30 gold
and 16 per cent copper.
The ledge on the Mountain Maid Is two
feet wide at the top and seven feet wide at
the bottom of a fifty-foot shaft. This Is a
fine piece of property. It belongs to Smail
& Co.
The Bee Hive Is owned by Laxenby & Mc-
Donald. A tunnel twenty-five feet ln depth
Is giving out some rich carbonate ore. The
croppings shown on this mine stand up
fifty feet, and are sixty or seventy feet in
length.—San Diego Union.
Mining Notes
A promising cinnabar prospect has been
discovered near Cedarvllle, Modoc county.
The Inyo Register says: T. H. Pheby, tho
Panamint pioneer, has, with his associ
ates, paid $10,000 for the Burro mine, in
Jail canyon, three miles from the Pana
mint road. He has also purchased the Red
lands company's mill and is moving It.
Some other Oaklanders are interested with
Mr. Pheby in these enterprises.
Receiver C. W. Pauly Is increasing tho
output of the Golden Cross mines at
Hedges, and within a few weeks will have
one hundred nnd forty stamps crushing ore
where now there arc only one hundred.
Thomas Johnson has sold his Chloride
mine for ffJOOO. A portion of the purchase
price, tho balance In sixty days. The mine
is among the richest lead producers of the
county.—Williams News.
The management of the Tennessee mine,
Amador county, is cleaning.out the drift
and opening the mine. It has not been
worked for many years.
A great many wing dams are being built
in California rivors this year, as tho
streams will be lower than ever before, and
the river miners expect large rewards.
While the "easy" gold-diggings of Cali
fornia—bench, bar, ravine, gulch, flat and
other surface placer deposits—were pretty
well worked out years ago, the larger and
more permanent sources of gold still re
main and are only partly worked. It is
only within a very few years past that the
fact has been recognized that most of our
,gold quartz mines would continue to pay
I at great depths.—San Francisco Examiner.
