Huntington is sole owner.
Men wise in railroad affairs said
yesterday that Huntington's proposed

extension to Santa Barbara.
For v long time the residents of
Hollywood have endeavored to get
Huntington to build there, but until
the present time ho has refused, al

so that he could make such extensions

Huntington will now be In a position
to give quicker service and with the
transfers which he would give over the
city lines in Los Angeles could hurt
the business of the Los Angeles-PaciHe
a great deal.
Will Build the Tunnel -
Perhaps the most direct blow that ho
could strike would be the extension of
his lines to Santa Barbara. The South
ern Pacific, of which B. H. Harriman Is
president, now carries thousands of pas
sengers every year between this point
and Los Angeles.
It Is understood that construction
work upon the new line will be begun
at once and the line, which is to be
broad gauge, will be completed within
a few months.
Nor Is it to be expected that Harri
man will be Idle during this time. The
only way that he caiv shorten the time
between Los Angeles and Hollywood
will be to lay tracks in a tunnel through
Hill street from First street north and
thus avoid the long detour by way of
Spring and Main streets and the Plaza.
He will undoubtedly use every effort
to secure the rights to construct such
a tunnel immediately. The Los An
geles-Pacific Will have to be made a
broad gauge road If it Is to be a com
petitor of the road that Huntington
will build, for Huntington is known the
world over for the fine lnteruiban
roads that he, builds.
Will Give Franchises
In. order to allow the cars that will
run over the new lnterurban lines to
enter Los Angeles it will be necessary
for a third rail to be laid along the
routes of the Biminl baths and Garvan
za lines, making these lines standard
gauge. ■• ■

Mexican as he wanders from window

such longing In his big eyes, and they
ask each other, "What can we do for

C. W. Roach, president of the Bar-
Btow Mining and Milling company, has
just returned from, their mines at Bar-
stow, Cal., and reports that the waters
of the Mojave river are bo high that lt
Is Impossible to cross with a team, and
lt will not be low enough to cross for
about five days yet, at which time the
company will place at work on the
Nettle mine two shifts of expert miners
and development will be carried on as
fast as possible day and night. Mr.
Roach also reports that all work done
to date Is standing fine without tim-
bers, and the main tunnel is In good
order and will not have to be timbered
at the main Incline, as was at first ex-
During the trip to the mines Mr.
Roach secured four more good claims
which he says are fine prospects but
will not be worked until the present
mine Is producing and paying divi-
dends. Therefore it will not be neces-
sary to sell any more stock than has
been placed on the market, and that
will be sold In a few days.
It is expected that the stock of this
company will go to $1 per share In a
few days and possibly withdraw from
the market, as the company does not
enre to sell any more stock than Is
necessary for real development work.
It might be stated here that there Is
not one officer In this company that
draws one cent salary, expenses or any
other cash whatever, and lt is also a
very Important thing for stockholders
to know that every cent this company
receives goes for real work In the Nettie

The Barstow Mining and Milling com-
pany have a valuable millsite on the
north side of the Mojave river and Jußt
one mile from the town of Barstow on
the direct line of the new Salt Lake
route. They have enough wood for
mill purposes for years to come and
water in abundance.
People who have a little- money to In-
vest had better look this company up
very carefully and at once as there is
no doubt that they have a wonderful
mine and great amounts of money will
bo made in the near future.
It is a well known fact that Governor
"Waterman, whose mine Is Just above
the Nettie, took out over $2,000,000, and
his millsite Is on the next section to
this claim. That there, is as much more
there there Is no reason to doubt, as the
Barstow Mining and Milling company
have proven that they have a wonder-
ful mine that assays very high. Thou-
sands of people have been to their

pany's offices are now located at 424,
425 and 426 Chamber of Commerce

RICH GOLD STRIKE

HIGH GRADE, FREE MILLING ORE

Special to The Herald.
SAN BERNARDINO, Dec. 4.— Spe-
cial Officer C. W. Roach of Barstow
has precipitated great excitement there
by discovering a rich gold ledgo just
across (the Mojave river from that
town. The assays run from $300 to
$1000 a ton. The ledge Is four fe.H
across and Is free milling.
Roach was only recently appointed
to his position at Barstow and since
locating there has been imbued with
the idea that a knoll lying near the
cemetery contained gold-bearing min-
eral. Yesterday he instituted search
and stumbled upon an abandoned tun-
nel and found it cross-cutting a rich
ledge. Not even the oldest inhabitants
of Barstow recall when the tunnel was
dug. It Is supposed to antedate Bar-
stow even as a stage station. Tonight
a large batch of mining locations cov-
ering the region were recorded here.
Grieg, Tschaikowsky, Wleniawskl and
Bach are the composers who predom
inate In these requests. Many letters
have been received from teachers and
students who are interested in Ku
bellk's playing but who up to the pres
ent have not found it convenient to at
tend, and to accommodate them, at a
uniform price, a block of seats has
been reserved, which will be placed
on sale this morning at students' rate.
Kubelik considers tonight's program
Jar superior to the other two programs
already given in this city. Miss Eyre
will introduce several new composi
tions In the piano portion of the pro
gram. The program numbers are as
Part I — Concerto G minor, Vorspeil,
Adagio, Finale (Bruch) Kubelik; piano

Nothing Visionary or Obscure
Shafts and Tunnels Gut to the Ore
The stock is being placed on the market by the
owners and not by promoters and is better than
old wheat in the mill because it will bring great
returns on the amount invested. You can get it
now and for only a short time at 50c per share.
Stock is limited and only 10,000 shares will be sold.
The Management of the Barstow Mining & Milling
Company has decided to place on the market for
a period of thirty days only, 10,000 shares of the
Treasury Stock at 50c per share, at the end of
which time the price will be advanced or the
stock withdrawn from the market.
If we had a fake stock in some of the big camps, we could very easily hand
you a bunch of nice hot air, but aa v/e only have a gold mine— a proven mine—
and all work to date done at our own expense before incorporating we can
only state facts. It is easy to tell big yarns about wonderful mines in such a
place you cannot go and see them, but at the property of the Barstow Min-
ing and Milling company everybody is welcome, and you can go and back in
twenty-four hours from Los Angeles. Therefore, we give you pure, straight
facts and dare you to dispute any statement we make.
The company put a double shift of men to work last Monday.
Our next intention is to begin building a 20-stamp custom mill, for which
we have ore to run day and night for three years.
Now all we can say is that we need more money for this work, and in re-
turn will give you a fair, square deal and real work for every cent invested.
There is not one man in the company who is a promoter, or ever has been, We
are miners and have a mine, and not schemers who have a scheme. We can
make you money, and that means money for us.
DEVELOPMENT TO DATE
NETTIE MPNE — The tunnel is now in 108 feet and is a large working tunnel.
Two large stringers of high-grade ore, 18 and 24 inches wide, running as high
as $114 and $345 per ton in gold, were cut. We expect to cut the main ledge in
100 feet more, which Is about 14 feet wide on its croppings and runs the v/hole
length of the claim.
Shaft No. 1 is now down 11 feet in ore that horns gold.
Shaft No. 2 is down 8 feet and has a stringer of very rich ore.
Tunnel No. 2 is in 18 feet and we expect to strike ore in about 10 feet more.
There are four more tunnels started as prospects and two more shafts for
The Barstow Mining and Milling company is incorporated under the laws
of California, giving it a clear title to its properties, for $1,000,000, divided into
100,000 shares of the par value of $10 each.
The mines are located in San Bernardino county, one mile north of the
town of Barstow. The company also owns a valuable millsite on Mojave river.

IN OLD TIN CAN
C. W. ROACH ,/ . t
Former Los Angeles Policeman Stum-
bles on Papers Which Lead
to Discovery of Fabulously
Rich Gold Mine
When C. W. Roach, formerly a mem-
ber of the Los Angeles police depart-
ment, stumbled onto a baking powder/
can near Barstow several months ago
he little realized that the key to what
promises to be a fabulously rich mine
was before him, but such lt proved
Within the can was still anotlier can,
and within the second can was a de-
scription of Ferdinand Egbert's lost
mine. The location was given and full
details of Its discovery confronted Mr.
This was three months ago, although
Egbert has been dead for ten years.
Today the Barstow Mining and Mill-
Ing company Is a reality, and a tunnel
108 feet long, which opens up veins of
ore worth from $114 to $34i> a ton, awaits
further development work of the com-
Chinese Furnish Money-
Soon after Mr. Roach discovered the
papers, and long before he was aware
just how rich the property was upon
which he filed his claim, Wong Kee,
the Chinese banker, restaurant keeper
and general store owner at Barstow,
was appealed to for funds to carry on
the development work.
Recognizing In Mr. Roach a man
upon whom he could depend, and hav-
ing more or less knowledge of the value
of mining claims, Wong Kee produced
the necessary cash and became the first
vice president of the company.
Then followed active development
work. Several tunnels were started, ,
the two richest veins were cross-cut
again and again, and finally at the
present time the company finds itself
In position to beprln removing ore run-
ning aa high as $345 to the ton.
The ore Is a milling proposition pur«
and simple, and although carrying a
trace of silver, there are no minerals
present except gold that will pay for
the trouble In getting them to market.
As soon as possible a twenty-stamp
mill will be built, and as the mine in
located near the Mojave river, which at
present Is nearly a mile wide, there will
be an abundance of water available.
The claim Is but one of eleven claims
owned by the company. They are di-
rectly In line with the survey of the
Salt Lake route, and when that com-
pany's tracks are laid from San Ber-
nardino to Dagget they will pass within
a few rods of the property.
The vicinity surrounding the claims
Is notable because of the early history
of the state and incidents connected
with the old Santa Fo trail. Here It
was that a graveyard was established
In an early day. at a time when few
words were spoken but many shots
were fired. No less than thirty-seven
distinct graves are to be found at the
present time, and probably fifty others
have become obscured from the wash-
ing of the ground at that point.
Officers of the Company
The 'officers of the company are as
C. W. Roach, president and manager.
Wong Kee, first vice president.
T. A. Smithson, perond vice president.
Mr. Roach is well known to many
Los Angeles people, having been at one
time a member of the local police de-
