LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 20.— The dig- j
patch to The Call stating that charges j
had been preferred to Governor Budd I
against the directors of the Sixth District
Agricultural Association, under whose
auspices the fair will be held next week,
has created almost a sensation here from >
the fact that the Governor refused to di

Several of the directors were seen to

of the document reciting the charges
made against them or knew the nature of '
them, they refused positively to say any- !
thing for publication. Who nas brought
the charges is a matter of conjecture, but

the facts said to your correspondent to
"Heretofore the Legislature has made
an appropriation of $3000 a year toward the
expenses of tne district fairs, and the fairs
have been held under State jurisdiction.
This year Governor Budd vetoed the bill
passed for the fairs, with the exception of
the amount set aside for the State Fair at
Sacramento, on the grounds of economy.
The directors of these fairs are appointed
and ser.ve without pay, and it is obligatory
on the Governor to appoint two each year
on November 1, or as near that date as
possible. There are at present none of

JO HIV T. BARRY GONE.
A Widely Known Newspaper Man Died
From Effects of Liquor and Mor
SACRAMENTO, Cal., Oct. 20.— John T.
Barry, one of the oldest newspaper men
on the coast, was found dying in hi 3 bed
at midnight last night. His name is
known from one end ol the State to the
other as a printer and writer. Fifteen
years ago he was proprietor of the San
Francisco Monitor and was a man of some
means, but he liked liquor and this
led to a considerable extent to his dropping
out of the literary arena and devoting him
self to the compositor's case. He con
ducted a job printing omee m this city for
a number of years and sold out his plant
to parties who established a daily paper.
For the past week Barry had been ilrinlc
ing heavily. On Saturday morning he
went home and taking a laree dose of mor
phine went to bed. He never regained
consciousness, but died soon after being
found. His wife, to whom he had been
married thirty years, had been threaten
ing suit for divorce and it is said among
his intimate friends that Barry had heard
that the papera were already drawn up.
They believe that this may have had soine
tning to do with his taking the poison.
Aside from this there is no apparent mo
tive for his taking his life, unless it was
general despondency, superinduced by too
It was his love for liquor that led to the
trouble between himself and nis wife, and
it is said that the ground upon which the
suit was to have been brought was cruelty.

A History That Will Apply to
Many Other Abandoned
[Special Correspondence of The Caix.]
MOKELUMNE HILL, Cal., Oct. 15.— 1f
another Utica mine is developed soon in
Calaveras County it is likely to be by the
Esperanza Company, whose claim is
located three and a half miles northeast of
OUTLINE MAP OF THE ESPEKANZA MINE AND SOME OF THE ADJOINING CLAIMS
[Furnished by courtesy of W. T. Robinson. Surveyed by C. JH. Burleson, C.E.]
Mokelumne Hill. This mine has long
been known as the Boston and has had a
chequered career, having had many own
ers and been worked and abandoned
numerous times. At the present time the
principal owner is Hon. S. P. Ely, and
with abundant capital and good manage
ment the merit of the mine is being proved
to the satisfaction of all. Those having
the best knowledge of the past history of
the mine have always contended that it
would pay if worked economically on a
large scale, but that it was distinctly a
low-grade proposition. The developments
of the first year show a remarkable im
provement in the quality of the ore, even
at the depth of 100 feet, with no diminu
tion in the quantity, and if the samples
shown mean a fair average and the reports
of assay value are true, a large part of the
vein is of much higher grade than the
Utica, even at the 1000-foot level.
The Esperanza claim is 4700 feet in
length by 000 feet wide. The work done
on it is mostly in a deep canyon a short
distance from tho Mokelumne River. The
facilities for tunneling are excellent, there
being 378 feet of vertical backs above the
lowest tunnel. The footwall is syenite and
the hanging wall slate. The tunnels run
in on the vein, there being en open cross
cut on the hillside exposing the vein and
showing it to be nearly 100 feet wide. It is
claimed the entire mass of vein matter
above the tunnel level is low-grade ore
and will pay to mill. The lowest tunnel is
in 320 feet and the vein crosscut in two
places, showing it to be from thirty to
seventy feet wide, stratified with several
distinct veins, with a gouge between each
and varying in richness. At the tunnel
level the ore is all practically mill rock,
and at the bottom of a winze sunk forty
five feet from this level, ana where a cross
cut was run, the general average valne for
forty-five feet was $5 per ton, and a rich
streak encountered, nine feet wide, that
averaged $G5 per ton. A marked change
was visible even at this shallow depth in
the character and quality of the ore, the
percentage oi snlphurets increasing and
their value multiplying several times.
A prospecting shaft has been sunk 100
feer below the tunnel level, and in a drift
and crosscuts from the bottom of the shaft
the true character and magnitude of the
vein is best illustrated. There are millions
of tons of low-grade ore above this level,
and thousands of tons of high-grade ore,
but the value of the mine is still nearly all
below. Should the improvement continue
in the same ratio to the 1000 level as it has
from the tunnel ievel to the bottom
of the shaft the Utica bonanza
would be a small affair by comparison. At
this lower level I found a "streak" of high
grade ore twelve feet wide on the footwall
sparkling with sulphurets and carrying a
large percentage of galena. In much of
tbis ore free gold can be seen in the sul
phurets, and the galena is rich in silver.
The entire width of twelve feet is said to
average $25 per ton, and the entire vein at
this level $7 per ton. Some of the assays
of the suiphurets run over $1000 a ton.
Comparing the Esperanza with other
mother lode mines, William T. Robinson,
the superintendent says: "The outcrop or
surface quartz of the Ezperanza, in point
of richness, is unprecedented. It is usual
to find but a trace of gold on the croppings
of the great mother lode mines, and it is
often found necessary to sink hundreds of
feet before encountering quartz that will
pay for milling. In the case of the Eureka
mine, at Sutter Creek, only $2 50 per ton
was yielded the first 400 feet in depth, and
yet this famous old property put in circu
lation over $15,000,000. Again, the Gwin
mine encountered only low-grade ore for
350 or 400 feet in depth, but between the
400 and 900 foot levels produced ore worth
$10 a ton. The Kennedy mine, at Jackson,
was sunk on and worked to the depth of
600 feet on low-grade ore, and finally
shut down because it would not
pay. Subsequently it was reopened
by the present Kennedy Company, and
after sinking to the 900-foot level has paid
an average of $15 per ton. The adjoining
mine to the Kennedy, theOneida, has paid
$10,000,000 to $15,000,000 in its day. The
Keystone mine at Amador City can show
a balance-sheet of $10,000,000 and is yet
producing. The Utica mine of Angels
Camp, supposed to be on the same lode as
the Esperanza, shows a net gain of $200,000
per month. The Zelie mine of Jackson
has been in operation for seventeen years,
and although it has a record of only about
$4 50 to $5 per ton has paid regular divi
dends. These are only a few of the pay
ing mines of the great northern zone.
Not one of them could be bought to-day,
as they are not for sale at any price, and
not one of them, at the depth of the pres
ent workings of the Esperanza, can com
pare with it in value of the quartz nor in
quantity of paying ledge matter."
The Esperanza mine is so fortunately
located that mining and milling may be
carried on at the minimum of cost. Tim
ber is abundant on the property of the
company and on the adjacent mountains.
Abundance of water for power flows by
the mine in the Mokelumne River the
year round. The Mokelumne diich is on
the brow of the mountain, 600 feet above
the mine, and with that tremendous pres
sure the company is able to create 125
horsepower with a Pelton wheel and a
Under the new management all improve
ments about the mine are being made in
first-class style. The old twenty-stamp
mill has been overhauled and almost en
tirely rebuilt, Frue concentrators added, a
Pelton wheel put in. and it will be crush
ing ore by the Ist of November. It is ex
pected the returns from the mill will pay
all expenses of the mine and for a perma
nent perpendicular working shaft, which
will be begun as soon as the present sur
face work outlined is completed.
The company has just completed a fine
new office building and will build cottages
for the men as they are needed. There is
a boardinu-honse, a bunk-house, stable and
all the necessary buildings. The force of
men at present employed is about forty,
which will be largely increased in the near
future. There is no trouble when payday
comes at the Esperanza mine. The money
is always ready, and Mr. Ely pays cash for
everything the moment it is due. Mo
k,elumne Hill is already beginning to feel
the good effects of the work being done at
this mine, and when the prospecting stage
is past and tw o or three hundred stamps
are running on good pay ore the camp will
be as lively and prosperous as Angels
under the domination of the '"other Utica."

The Gang in the Saloon Sobered
by the Sudden Presence
FRESNO, Cal., Oct. 20. — A strange
case of death occurred this after
noon at the town of Fowler, ten miles
south of this city. A man poured a glass
of what appeared to be whisky down the
throat of another, who, a moment later, fell
The dead man's name is either John
Ford or John Monroe. Nothing of his
past is knowh. He came to Fowler a few
days ago. and has been picking grapes on
a vineyard near town. The affair occurred
in a saloon called the Blue Wing, which
was crowded with men at the time. Every
one was drunk, from barkeeper down.
Therefore definite particulars were secured
Late to-night Constable Henry arrested
J. H. Hawkins in Chinatown, in this city,
as the man who gave the whisky to Mon
roe. Hawkins frankly admitted that he
was the man who had given Monroe the
whisky. He said that he was coming
through on the freight train from Tulare
and at a saloon in Selma he bought the
whisky which proved the fatal drink to
Monroe. He disclaims any knowledge of
the whisky containing poison. Hawkins
is a laboring man, about 25 years of age.
It appears that Monroe had been in the
saloon carousing with others during the
afternoon, and was in much the worst con
dition. At 3 o'clock the northbound freight
train arrived, and spent three-quarters of
an hour switching. Hawkins, who came
on the train and claimed to be a brake
man, went over to the Blue Wing saloon.
He had been drinking, and immediately
joined in the carousal. He got in with
Monroe, and the two had several drinks
They were having a good time together
for about half an hour when the trainman
pulled out from his coat pocKet a pint
flask, apparently containing whisky. He
grabbed Monroe's head with his right hand
and held it back while with the other hand
he placed the flask to Monroe's mouth and
poured the contents down his throat.
Monroe was so stupid with drink that he
made no resistance and drank the fluid
Monroe a second later reeled against the
bar and fell on the floor. The drunken
crowd thought it great sport and had a
long, loud laugh, thinking that Monroe
had fallen from the effects of too much
drink. But when they went to help him
to his feet they found that he was in a se
rious condition. This sobered the crowd
somewhat and emetics were poured down
Monroe's throat. Nothing was of any
avail and he died a few moments later.
As soon as Hawkins had given Mon
roe the fatal drink he disappeared and
rode out with the train, which left shortly
Monroe's mouth and tongue were badly
blistered, and it is thought the whisky in
the flask contained carbolic acid. No motive
or cause for the action can be ascribed other
than a drunken freak. Monroe was 49
years of age. Coroner Long has gone to

fornia he believes that they are in a healthy
condition and that everything is pointing
to Democratic victory at the next election.
"The re-election of A. A. Watkins as
chairman of the committee of 450," he
said, "is regarded with great satisfaction
by all the Democrats, and it is the hope
that the committee will be reorganized in

back of Carpinteria and causing a reign of
terror among the inhabitants was driven to
seek shelter from the recent storm and
was captured and brought here, where he
was given a short sentence for vagrancy.
The man talks wildly and disconnectedly,

in that place. The authorities here have
communicated with the Rochester Insane

SEAL CATCH Or THE SEASOS.
Canadian Vessels Report a Profitable
Run I*ll licrintj Sea.
VICTORIA, B. O, Oct. 20.— The pelagic
sealers' catch in Bering Sea this year ha 3
been by many thousands the largest on
record, and sealing men are at a loss to
understand how the Governor of Alaska
came to report that the operations, of
British sealers have been a failure.
Canadian vessels this year took 72,500
skins from all quarters, against 94,474 last
year, but the decrease is attributed solely
to the bad weather of the spring, when
vessels operating on the British Columbia
and Asiatic coasts alike found it impos
sible to lower their small boats for hunt
ing except on a very few days of the
season. Forty-five Canadian vessels went
into Bering Sea when the season opened
in August, and their total catch there was
36,750 skins, against a total of 26,341 last
year, which then was the best on record.
Owners are naturally well pleased with
the result of Bering Sea operations, which
saved the season from being one of financial
