Attempt to Locate Property on
Caledonia Street.
OWNERS WROUGHT UP
Would be Locators Ordered
The Attempt Created
Excitement.
Off
The property owners whoso holdings
are situated on Caledonia street, west
from Franklin street, were somewhat
excited this morning over what they con
sider was an attempt to jump their
properties. Some loud talk was indulged
in, principally by the property owners,
and trouble was averted by the would
be locators withdrawing from the neigh
borhood after receiving notice to do so.
The ground in question is a small frac
tion south of the Hub addition, ex
tending from the corner of Franklin
street west on Caledonia street about
600 feet. It was originally held by
ward G. Blitzen, a miner, by squatter's]
right. Blitzen sold a number of lots, for
which he gave quit claim deeds, and on
these lots several houses have been built.
A short time ago the city purchased a
portion of the fraction for the purpose
of opening up Franklin street.
The attempt to locate this property,
if it was an attempt, was made this
morning by George Gemmel, who is said
to have been acting as the agent of those
who are seeking to acquire the ground.
At 7 o'clock a force of men was put
...
fat
. .. , * * XT t hi ♦ .
to work on the lot of H. L. Metz, at
the corner of Franklin and Caledonia.
Mr. Metz' property is situated on the
east end of the fraction. Metz had a
conference with Gemmel, and was told
by the latter that he proposed to take
the ground up for mineral purposes.
Metz replied that while he had no right
to the mineral deposits, he wanted the
surface kept intact. Gemmel informed
him that he regretted to disturb him.
but if the ground was open to mineral
location he proposed to locate it.
Metz then came down town and con
sulted a lawyer, who advised hint to
order the men off the premises as tres
passers. He went back and did so and
the locators quit work and took their
departure.
Several other owners of property along
Caledonia stret were not quite as cour
teous as Metz. John Hunter notified the
jumpers that if they came inside his
fence he would blow them full of holes.
The excitement over the episode had
subsided this afternoon.

THE COPPER MINING SHARES

STIFFElR TODAY.
j

I
The copper mining shares recovered
this morning and reached fair prices. The
difference between the eastern and west
ern speculators was weil illustrated yes
terday, when the money panic struck
Boston. The eastern "fry" stampeded
like sheep and let go. thus further demor
alizing the market. Not„su with the west
ern men, however. They put up their
margins like little men, well knowing that
the copper stocks in which they had in
vested were worth every dollar of their
investment. It is believed that Butte
yesterday contributed fully $50,000 to cov
er margins on stocks.
