DREDGING FOR GOLD
GIVES RICHES FOR ALL North California Teems With the Greatest Activity OLD CHANNELS GIVE UP YELLOW METAL Copper Camps in Arizona Look Prosperous— Tombstone Doing Big Things While the trend of attention seems to be foeUß9d upon the big things In mining Mint come from Onldflekl, To nopah, Bullfrog nnd other mining cen ters, It might bs well to stop and ' consider what Is actually being done In the golden state of California In the mining Industry. The output of gold for the pnst fiscal year Is placed in round numbers at $20,000,000, which fnr exceeds the combined output of the yellow metal In all Nevada, One feature of mining In California; In fact, one of great magnitude, Is dredging for gold. When announce ment Is made that at Jum Pup or at Tlncannup ore that runs $400 a. ton is streaking a ledge, the rush with pike, pistol and burro is on, but when It Is said that on the Feather river and on the American, the Yuba, Calaveras, Klamath and Trinity rivers, where companies are now employing forty three dredgers and four others are being constructed, and that between $2,600,000 and $3,000,000 has been In vested in these machines and over $1, 000,000 additional capital has been pal<l out for the land which has been bought for the purpose of dredging, opinion may well be divided as to where gold Is really found. The chief operations are being con ducted on the Feather river, where twenty-eight dredgers are at work, and .on the American river, where eight other machines are running. An expert estimates that there are not over 100,000 acres of land In the state avail able for dredßlng trtr gold. This is probably an underestimate, as It has been recently proposed to dredge the terraces in the neighborhood of Oro vllle, and it Is believed that large areas of auriferous land In other counties can be profitably worked with dredgers ' without Injury to the navigable streams or the agricultural lands. Estimates have been made that twen ty-six corporations engaged in dredg ing expend from $2000 to $4000 a month for supplies and labor for each machine. It is estimated that It will cost the dredging companies $300,000,000 for la bor and supplies to work the 100,000 acres assumed to be available for dredg ing, from which the companies engaged in the business expect to obtain a cor responding amount In dividends. These figures show the enormous extent and value of the Industry. Some agricul tural land is being temporarily If not permanently destroyed; but a large pro portion of the area to be dredged Is either now covered with the debris of hydraulic mining or is unsulted for ag ricultural purposes. Venture Hill Copper ■ Those of Los Angeles who are In terested In the Venture Hill copper mines near Jerome, Ariz., have been in formed that last week an outfit and force of men was sent to the property of the company, where the workings on that property will be cleaned out and straightened preparatory to con tinuing development work. The late heavy rains have caused a number of caves In the different tunnels and shafts, which It will take several days to clean up, when development will Immediately follow. The Venture Hill Is located Just south of the Cleopatra, and Ib acknowledged to be one of the most promising properties in ths Jerome district. Cleopatra Copper Outlook With every foot of work on the Cleopatra copper mine at Jerome there Is something n*w to tell of the richer ores encountered, and that the com pany is developing rapidly a large and rich body of ore. This Is especially being demonstrated in the winze being sunk from the Wlningham tunnel. From this winze miners continue to take ore that increases In value ns depth is attained. The work, is now down to a depth of thirty feet and has gone through twenty-five feet of poy ore. Not a pound of waste has gone over the dump from this twenty-five feet of work. Th« drifts from the Dillon tunnel are filling with mineral as progress Is made and It now looks as If a few more feet would bring both into solid ore. Quicksilver In Oregon The Oregon Mining Journal reports that more attention Is given to the. production of quicksilver in Oregon than at any previous time. In a review of the situntlon the Journal says in part: • The flattering showing made by ro cent retorts of ore from the cinnabar mines of the Meadows quicksilver dis trict of Jackson county, neur Trail, has caused a revival of Interest In th« mining of mercury In this (Medford) section. Klghty pounds of mercury to the ton are produced. A small plane has been erected for development pur poses mainly. The retort has a capac ity of 1400 pounds of ore per duy. There are a' half score of cinnabar mines in the Meadow* district, all of which are receiving attention, and ttll carry values In mercury. .Several am opened to a depth of 150 and 200 feet, with veins varying in width from ten Inches to three and four feet. The number of excellent prospects in the district makei the MeuUuwt* out) uf fr>romlee us a future producer of mer cury. From California Camps The MontMtima group of mines In Shasta county h«« been Hold by the Connors to the Gold King Mlnln* company. Them are nix claims In all. Ths mining company Is composed largely of Los Angeles parties. Clin ton Johnson Is the president. The Klamath River Dredge Mining company Is preparing to operate on a tract of 2100 acres extending In land from the mouth of the Klamath river. The Redding Searchlight reports a strike In the Reid mines near Red ding. There nre six claims In one group under bond to t). B. Hunt and Jnmes Sallee of ftnii Francisco. Work hns bppn In progress some months. The Mnrysvllle Oold Dredging com pany, the Mflrysvllle Democrat re ports, will begin to construct two mining dredges this month, of the type uspd on the Yuba Consolidated oC Ootrifleld district. \V. P. Hnmmnn will be the iniiintßlnK director of the Marysville company. By the end of the year six dredgers will be In oper ation on the Yuba. Two are working, two half completed and two new ones have been contracted for. The Ham lnon compnny may construct other machines this yenr. The Ulue Tent mine, owned by C, L. Cnnfteid nnd P. G. Drescher on the South Yuba river, nix miles from Nevada City, Is putting 200 tons of gravel a day through the mill. The mine was formerly operated as a hydraulic property, but Is now a drift proposition. The Redding Searchlight reports that Deadwood, In Trinity county, Is on active camp. A score of leasers nre operating and have met with good returns. Rock ranging from $70 to $600 a ton Is reported to have been found. Nevada City Is playing In luck. A rich strike is reported in the Lecomp lon mine. Recently a strike was made at the Murchle. The resumption of work at the Home mine also adds to the good outlook. The Lecompton mine is In the Willow valley district. The ore was encountered in a cross cut from the 400-foot level. Tombstone Is Aglow The Tombstone Consolidated com pany that haß undertaken the task of pumping out the old mines of the olden days of that camp is reported so sanguine of success in its under taking that the company at a recent meeting ordered another pumping plant having a capacity of 2,500,000 gallons. This pump will be Installed on the 800 foot level and ready for work about June 1. With this addi tional pump at work, sinking on the ore bodies will continue, and the rich es that are believed to exist at greater depth will soon be utilized by the Im proved machinery for reduction. Gold Dollar Placers In Trinity county the Gold Dollar mine, while a new property, Is reported as developing Into one of the richest in the Canon creek section. The mine Is at a point where Forty Dollar gulch flows into the creek, and there is an Interesting bit of history connected with this particular portion of the Canon creek placer mines. Lawrence Frank, an old prospector who was well known not only on Canon creek but up and down the whole course of Trinity river as well, stopped one day at the stream flowing down this gulch, his mind intent, not on hunting for the alluring yellow metal, but upon quenching his thirst, and upon stooping down to drink his eye was attracted by something that made him forget for a, moment that he was thirsty, while he picked up a smoothly worn nugget of gold. The only avail able gold scales in the vicinity would weight no more than two ounces, and this nugget was found to be too heavy to weigh upon these scales, but the prospector sold It for $40, and from that Incident the sulch was named "Forty Dollar gulch." More of the Same In 1871 an old prospector whom Trin ity residents will remember by the name of "Johnny Bull," mined on the bank of Canon creek near this same Forty Dollar gulch and found a nugget containing $800 In gold. This is the largest nugget ever found along Canon creek. A few years later, or in 1876, J. Barleycorn was working In the same neighborhood, ground sluicing a bench of gravel just a few yards above Forty Dollar gulch, and Immediately below the channel where the Gold Dollar mine is baing operated, and in six days' work took out $1800. The place he worked may be seen by the side of the read. Ledges Are Found These stories were for a long tlrrm common talk among the residents of Junction City and vicinity, but no one thought of going up on ths slds of the mountain to find the source of the gold that had washed down and lodged in these bars and benches, until In the fall of 1900 Alexander Gilzean and Jo- Beph Elliott, who often went by the nickname of Jim Davis, working upon the theory that there must be an old river channel higher up on the moun tains that fed these benches and bars, ,went systematically to work to pros pect the higher ground. They met with some discouragement, but on the 12th day of December, 1900, Mr. OUzean found $1.73 In small gold lying In the bottom of his pan after he had washed out a panful of gravel, and knew that he had "struck^t." The next day three flour sacks were filled with the gravel nn<". carried down the steep hillside to Canon c r «*£ 260 yards away, and upon helnt; witv.h'Ml $18.20 waa obtained. Sacking the Gravel In order the better to transport thi gravel to Canon creek they then con- Btruct«d a rough 'hand sled, and after fucking the travel hauled It down to LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY, MORNING, APRIL 17, 1905. the creek to he washed. This method of mlnlnjr netted them In twelvn daye,, $710 In gold, and then they stnrted In to fit tip the mine for more economical snd efficient working. After locating the ground they continued to work upon a small scale, adding Improve ments from time to time until they had the mine fully equipped. There In now upon the property a good ditch bring ing 800 to 700 miners' Inches of water from Conrad gulch, which Is used under a pressure of about 100 feet. Th* mine l« equipped with all necessary hydraulic pipe, giants, KAtefl And other appliances for operating It In an ef ficient nnd economical manner, besides boarding house, blacksmith shop and other buildings. Coarse Gold Pound A group of six claims are Included in the property, containing 220 acres, and of this about eighty Is working gravel. There are several ancient river channels running through the property which have been prospected nnd found to be rich In gold bearing gravel. It Is estlmnted thnt this grav>l will produce $15,000 to the acre. In the channel where mining operations are being conducted the gravel Is from twelve to fifteen feet deep nnd from the grnvel to the surface of the ground there Is about thirty-five to forty feet of loam, making the total height of thft bank about forty-five to fifty-five feet. The gold is mainly coarse, and many fine specimens have been taken out; but fine gold Is also found, not only in the gravel, but also In the overlylns dirt clear to the surface. In the work that haa been done about 120 yards of bedrock have been stripped, from which more than $11,000 has been taken, and the amount of gold In creases ns the channel is followed up. Nuggets Are Found About two miles south of Yreka. Cai., James Plummer, a prospector of the old school, has made a rich strike near the old Mountain King claim, formerly worked, from which he re cently realized about $1200 in nuggets. One of the nuggets 1s about twelve or thirteen inches long and two Inchcj wide, a flat, thin piece, valued at $300. Keckathorn & Wademan took out $6000 from the Mountain King mine, In which Wademan was killed while blasting. The find by Plummer is Just above the Dave Ream claim, where he Intends continuing development in the hope of finding a permanent ledge. Angelenos In Mining That Mohave county, Arizona, is at tracting the attention of Los Angeles Investors is shown by the following Items taken from the Klngman Miner: G. H. Hooper, a Los Angeles mining man, has arrived In Klngman. Mr. Hooper Is Interested In the Rosborough & Johnson Copper Prince property, on Bill "William fork, and is here looking after the new company's Interests. Mr. Hooper made the deal on the Railroad and other properties in the Gold Road country a year or so ago. Theodore P. Lamb, who returned from Los Angeles, has gone to Chlo ride, where he will look after the New Jersey mine, on which he has a bond. As soon as the railroad is put in com mission it is the intention to make a shipment of ore to the smelter. The property Is one of the good things in the Chloride section. 1... D. Godshall has returned from Needles and Los Angeles, where he negotiated the purchase of the Needles smelter and the holdings of the Fletcher Mining company of Los Angeles in this county. The smelter will be over hauled and its capacity added to. A roaster will also be put in and Inside of three months the smelter will be blown in. Contracts are to be let on the Twins wine and that property will be opened up in a thorough manner. J. F. Burkhard came in from Los Angeles Wednesday and departed to the Tyro mines. He was met in Klng man by his brother, H. J. Burkhard, who has been looking after affairs at the mine during his absence In Califor nia. The mines are said to be opening In splendid shape. The German-American Mining com pany, owned In Los Angeles, Is prepar ing for the installation of a milling plant at the mine. The machinery Is partly on the ground and the balance will be brought in as fast as possible. The company has opened a large amount of ground, and development is being carried on at the mines with great rapidity. John Brockman, accompanied by a friend, came in from Los Angeles yes terday and departed to the Dempsey- ODea mines at once. It in said that splendid ore is now being taken from the mines and that with every foot of depth better ore is being: encountered. M. S. Cook made an examination of a mining property on the Lower Sandy owned by Henry Olea and departed to Los Angeles Monday with his samples. The mine is said to be one of the best little gold properties In the Sandy country. P. 11. Smith, a young mining man from Windsor, Nova Scotia, made an -examination of the Acadla mines, In Aubrey district, the first of the week. He departed to Los Angeles last even ing and will go to Boston for a confer ence with his company. He will return to Klngman in abount slk weeks. W. H. Taggart arrived last Wednes day from Los Angeles, where he has been looking after mining affairs the past several months. It is expected that the C. O. D, mine, In which he Is heavily interested, will soon be oper ated by the new corporation.

BANANA MEN ARE AT OUTS TWO TRUST CONCERNS THROW FRUIT ON MARKET BUTTER IS NOT CHANGED Eggs Remain Steady — Fish Too Plen. tiful— Fresh Fruit Arrives— Fancy Potatoes Scaree — Texas .Onions Are Due Los Angeles fruit jobbers are won dering whether a war has developed In the banana market. On Saturday bananas were being generally sold at 3c, 3%c and 3 l-3c a pound In bunch lots and this too on classification In quality. From Inspired southern sources It is learned that the Inde pendent banana growers, with head quarters in New Orleans, has selected certain markets to give the banana trust a go for the trade, and Los An geles is the spot for attack in the southern part of the Pacific coast. Those who seem possessed of in formation say that the Independent growers are slaughtering prices, first, because the stock In Central America is large, and that they must keep their ships employed even at a small profit, and second that the fresh fruit In the east and on the coast meets the banana and that prices must be sacrificed to market the goods. How ever correct these views may be the fact remains that those dealers who handle trust goods are meeting this competition and slaughter. The market is demoralized, and peddlers are taking the overripe and culls at low prices. Shipping Is in limited quantities. Last week the receipts reached ten carloads, 1 being renlty four carloads in excess of require ments. This causes stocks to' be large, and every banana room of any con sequence in this city is filled. It Is a war that Interests the consumer, but hits hard the cash account of the participants. BUTTER NOT LOWERED— Butter dealers say they will not adhere to the 45 cent price for valley creamery, as the butter board on Saturday again made this price. Storing must follow and the trade In general says that prices are out of proportion to condi tions. "Butter King" Smith says he has 30,000 pounds of butter to sacrifice and more to come, and plenty of back ing, as he intends to stand on his price of 40 cents a roll. CHERRY SEASON OPENS— If re ports that have come to Los Angeles from the north are correct, the coming cherry crop will be only one-half of the usual amount. Today the cherry season will open with blacks being of fered at $4.00 for a box of eight pounds. They come from Vacavllle. It Is said that the recent cold rains, when the trees were In flower, buds were injured and knocked off, render- Ing the prospects for the Royal Ann crops one-half, for the black cherries one-half, and that the small white cherry will yield only one-fourth of a crop. Shipments are going east, and until this demand is satisfied the price will be firm and the supply limited. EGGS TJNCHANGED-On the pro duce exchange Saturday the egg quotation committee again fixed the selling price of eggs at 21 cents for California ranch. Demand is reported steady, and supplies are ample for all purposes. If prices will advance this week Is a conjecture. Northern eggs It Is regarded serve to keep prices lower. Some storing of locals is reported. Cheese 1b steady at former quota tions. Receipts indicate that local make is about normal, and that de mand takes all supplies. It is re por.ted thnt cheese ■ makers are await ing the outcome of the butter .rnixup. Lower butter may mean lower priced cheese. POTATOKS SCARCER-In this market fancy California potatoes are scarce. Only a few carloads are In stock and Job about $2.00. Colorado la affording relief, and though not of the best, yet they find an open market owing to general scarcity In this sec tion and on the const. Colorado white beauty are held at $1.40, nnd rurals and pearls »1.25<H>1.35. Shipping is still the order of the day as the local new crop in not a figure, All onions are firm and scarce. From Texas this week will come two carloads of reds and Bermudas, that will go on the market from $firstname.lastname@example.org. Demand, of course, is active for any onion. FRUIT IN GENERAL— Although strawberries crowded the market on Saturday the demand took the offer- Ings. Gardenas . and Monetas were firm at 6c@6c a box and fancy Tropl cos 8 cents. In this week It Is said the receipts will break records as the fruit is prime and ripening fast. Dewberries are again 22 cents a box, and raspberries a luxury at 30 cents. Tangerines are firm at $1.250>1.35 a box; lemons at the top; $1.65 for fancy navels; grape fruit $email@example.com for sudlen. Gooseberries are due in this week, but the <-rop is late, and red currants will follow a few days later. Rhubarb Is in good supply and choice 90c@$1.00 a box. Kan Jose Is sending the Jumbo kind. Demand only fair. In the general list of vegetables asparagus Is 10c<g>12c a pound; peas 4 cents flat; wax and Hiring beans 8c@)9o; cauliflower 760, a dozen; celery WV<U7Oc a dosen. Mexican tonmtoes, 2Viei r (f3c a pound; local tomatoes, slow nt firstname.lastname@example.org a box and $1.40 for fancy shipping. APPLES FlßMEß— Although fresh fruit la more plentiful and bananas glut the market, the tone or the apple market shows strength. Several varieties are out of market, principal ly Arkansaa blacks, belleftowera, red pearmalns and pippins. On Saturday an advance was made! fixing fnncy Colorado reds nt $2.2S « box, white winter penrmnln" In four tiers $1.&f1(?M,75, and yellow Newtown pippins $1.60, All other grades re main from $1.25#1.3R a. box. Hesortlng and packing Is active. FIHH AND OAM R— AII last week fish filled the market, and orders were given fishermen to send less. This week may al«o show large supplies, but ns It Is holy week the demand may be greater. Barracuda, yellowtall and halibut have had the run of the market. Some rabbits are offered, hut wild geese ure scarce and gradually pass ing for the season. Old hens are freely offered, but fryers and broilers scarce. Demand is good. For old hens dealers pay live weight 14 cents ti pound, for roosters 8 cents, and for young stock 20e@21c.
