&&&&&&&&&&&&tt&)&tt&pQffltt&&f&ttftttwyw&wf5L .-- - - M Lost Miiies of the Great" Southwest 5 By Joe Minster fe From Data Furnished by Horace J. West & Mg (Copyright by Rldsway Co.) V I HEN tho railroads built their trans continental systems, ono of their greatest dinieultlos lay In tho sup ply of water for tho men who were working on tho projects. Groat wagon-trains wore frequently es sential to bring sufficient of tho supply to mako work for a week at a tlmo possible. Even after the completion of tho roadB there was difficulty In obtaining water for tho purposo of supplying tho engines or tho little stations necessary wher ever thero was a siding. In order to Secure water In abundance, tho Santa Fo railroad had ordered a tunnel bored In tie Clipper range, located in San Bernardino county from eight to ten mlleB northwest of Danb,-, tho station to which it was to bo piped if discovered in a largo quantity. This all happened within a Bcoro of years. The man who volun teered for tho work, a compotont mining man, who was well acquainted with tho sinking of shafts and tho boring of tunnels, was Thomas SchoOeld of Los Angeles. Tiring of work one day In early Juno of 1894, he started on a prospecting trip, something which ho did whenever ho felt in need of relaxation. Ho wandered Into ono of tho canyons closo at hand and discovered thero a spring. What to him was moro surprising and oven startling was tho trail that led up tho canyon, stopping at tho watering place. Tho trail, at times very indlBtlnct becauBo of tho solid rock formation, led over threo or four 6mnl IiIIIb, tho hogback of two ranges and then into another canyon. This ho followed until It ended in a blank wall and ho realized that tho trail had beeh lost Going back a short dlstanco ho discovered It winding up the side of "tho hill. It led to two Immonso rocks, rivaling tho towers of an old English castle. They seemed to form tho portal to tho wealth beyond, and nature had sot them so closely together that they allowed Just sufficient passageway fo permit a burro well packed to enter. And just beyond the portal stood an isolated rock. There besldo tho black boulder of enor s mous size stood the shreds of what had been a camp. Tho wooden upright supports were still standing, and draped from them, floating In tho breeze, were the Bhreds of what had been a tent. Brush had been carefully piled up around tho sides. Insldo there was a bench of boughs, still covered with a blanket, which was, like tho tent covering, dilapidated and ragged. Tho still ness of the place and the fact that man had been mriklng his habitation there struck Schofield like a blow from a fist. - A pllo of railroad ties, a number of rusty old axes which had been used as wedges for splitting tho ties for laKulnfr. a few other mining tools and Homo badly decomposed food still lay about tho placo. Indicating very sudden abandonment of the camp by its owner. Tho most conspicuous of all things about tho place was an old-fashioned, heavily rusted Dutch oven, the largest Schofield had ever seen and a trlflo over two feet in diam eter. So' oppressive was tho place and so nerve racking the immediate strain, that he continued on tho trail which led away from the camp. Just a short distance away ho came to a shaft where considerable work had been done. It waB sunk upon a series of small stringers that ran parallel, to one another for a long distance and at Intervals of about six Inches. Ho counted twelve of these peculiar formations in tho rock and they were of almost solid gold! Ho tested them, "homing" great strings of coarse gold. Tho surrounding ore was of an lndlgo-bluo quartz formation, and "to mo tho stringers, pass ing through the dark porphyry, appeared a bod of roses of golden hues hidden In the depths of a giant bed of violets," said Schofield in telling of his discovery. "I traced these lineB of high-grade oro for a dUtance-of nearly 3,000 feet, and found ttyom widening and enlarging as they went. They interested mo so that I failed to notice for hours that tho day was fast waning and that I would be forced to remain thero over night. "Tho mystery, the awe and oven tho fear of that night I Bhall never forgot Wa3 I In tho haunt of a robber crew who had found wealth far richer than could be obtained from their nefar ious trado In the city? Had the owners been cruelly murdered nnd their wealth carried off by some one else? Was I the victim of some strange phantasmagoria, or would I awaken to find all tho wealth and the adventure of tho day a dream? Those and countless other suggestions coursed through my throbbing brain, and I slept little that night Jl "In the morning I explored tho shaft at the first light of breaking sun above the Jagged sky line of broken peaks. I found that the shaft had been sunk to possibly soventy or eighty feet, that It was equipped with a windlass, rope and buckot and that It had been well timbered all tho way to tho bottom. Outside 1 discovered a largo pllo of oro, Indicative of tho fact that little or. nono of the product of the mine had over been carried away. "After gathering a number of fine samples and a large quantity of tho horned gold, I wont back to tho camp nnd thero again I was attracted 'by tho Dutch oven. Something seemed to draw mo toward It. It contained gold! Halt of Jt was full of the product and there was I unablo to cart It awa. AH marks of thoso who resided thero were of fliich an old stamp that I never thought wheth er It would bo right or wrong. The Idea of pos session of so much wealth nearly overwhelmed me, and after grasping some cf It I started back to tho camp by tho tunnel, planning a trip to Los Angeles to boo whether It was really gold that 1 had found." And whon Schofield had his ore and his metal tested he found that It was tho real article and thnt ho had made himself richer by several hun dred dollars with Just tho small amount ho had been ablo-to lug out on his person. It fired him with the dosiro to return at onco and obtain all of tho trcasuro If tho right owners had no't re turned. But ho has never been able to got back to tho Dutch oven! In coming back from tho mine ho had paid lit tle heed to the general direction taken. He had followod tho trail blindly on his way up nnd again on his return Journey, Consequently after a number of weeks, when he returned with a part ner to look for tho treasure and found thivf some terrific rains and evon a waterspout had been ahead of hlsrhls plans became hazy. Tho water had obliterated all signs of a trail and Ills knowl edge of getting back was gone with It. Men will sacrifice love, life, vlrtuo nnd kindred things Is thero Is a great opportunity presented for tho accumulation of suddon wealth. Strange alliances, stories of murdor, long legal fights nnd bitterest enmity have grown up In tho southwest as adjuncts to 'the continued hunt for trcasuro. Among tho strange stories thnt aro moro widely known la that which has to do with a lost placer of great riches. It finds Its origin In tho early eighties, cither 1883 or 1881, when a white man, a lono prospec tor, wandered Into tho camp of tho Piute Indians at Pluto Bend on tho Nevada sltto of the Colo rado river. Tho bend only lay a fjow miles abovo Port Mohnvo, and It Is there that Jamison, which Is generally given as tho man's name, gathered his first Inklings of tho storied wealth accumulat ed by soveral members of tho tribe. Thoy were said to know of several great gold deposits In the desert and mountain country con tiguous to their placo of living, and from these thoy frequently brought to Fort Mohave splendid specimens of nuggets and gold dust. This gold they traded for a half or third of Its actual -value, buying the baubles and tho gaudy apparel so dear to tho heart of the red man. It also led occa sionally to serious trouble, attempts of unscrupu lous whites to obtain their secrets, sometimes even by force, usually by somo chicanery. Jamison took n course which brought him In direct and continued contact with all members of tho tribe. He married ono of tho squaws, and nfter a year or-.two of living with tho Indians gained many of their secrets. To his brother-in-law ho was Indebted for tho discovery of an Im mensely rich placer. To reach It at all seasons of tho year was apparently Impossible. "Wo shall wait till the snow falls and covers all tho land," said the red brother to Jamison. Thoy waited for two years for such a tlmo to como, Bnow not being n usual thing in that portion of the country every year. And when It came, the Indian took his adopted tribesman for a long Journey, to a placo of threo peakB and a placo where no water was obtainable, save through melting tho snow, nnd there they gathered from beneath tho white cloak much gravel, and carried it back to tho camp of tho Indians In three days Feeling assured, then, of tho wealth he was to gather, Jamison wrote nn old eastern friend whoso name has been lost. It Is said to have been Fields. Ho told Fields all about the won derful gravel, and so excited his desire for riches that within a few months Fields had arrived at Fort Mohave. Jamison left tho Indians with tho -excuse that ho had to look after particular busi ness in California. Then with Fields he went to Homer, a station on the Santa Fe railroad in San Bernardino coun ty, California. There they purchased a span of good mules with somo of the gold that Jamison had saved from his first trip, and they loaded nn old buckboard with a barrel iof water and a fov provisions nnd started out, driving south Into Homer Wash. From all reports they probably traveled forty miles that day and night, arriving at the diggings early the next morning. "Thero we climbed a mesa," said Fields, telling of the discovery In after years. "And on top of this proceeded with our work, which merely con sisted In scraping the gravel In heaps and pan ning It In a tub which Jamison had brought along for tho purpose. Tho water which had been left In the barrel was used In the tub. The gravel was nearly half gold, so rich that It nearly stun ned us. We became careless In our work, picking off only the coarse gold and tho nuggets, and dumped tho residue of fine 'gold and dust Into the tub. It was far too much work to pan It clean." Want of water, the bugaboo that has menaced every prospector at ono time or another in the southwest, came upon them at nightfall when they were forced to give to the two mules the wa ter that had been used for panning. It was less than enough to quench their thirst, and In half panic the two miners cached their tub, half full of dust, and their gold pan in a small cave which they had discovered In ono of tho little canyons leading off tho mesa. Then came their retreat, as Ignominious as any that ever befell an army. With all their wealth thoy wor forced to run. A panic seemed to over take them and thoy Jogged their mules through the desert night, trying to get to Homer before the break of day and tho heat that came with It In that summer period. With coming of dawn they found themselves In a sad plight. They had lost tho trail entirely, were In a country new to them, had not a drop of water and scarcely a handful of fpod. With breaking light camo hope. Way off In tho dlstanco they discerned the gutdepost that has led to many a salvation In tho desert wastes; telegraph poles strung at regular intervals. To reach them and the railroad tracks thoy marked was their aim. Through threo hours of tortuous work, walking instead of trying to ride behind tho worn-out mules, thoy struggled on, their tongues lolling black from out their mouths, their throats burned to a cinder crlspness, their eyes bulging. In continued effort and strain. And reaching tho railroad, thoy could discern, Just a short dlstanco to tho right, n few strag gling buildings, somo Uttlo outpost of civilization, with promise of water If nothing more. And this they reached eventually, pulling their mules be hind them. Thoy were found by an old minor who happenod on to tho broad wooden platform of tho only bar In Blako during tho noon siesta of the town. Thoy wore more dead than alive, and ty took several hours of hard work to bring them to. For two days thoy wero out of their minds, Tholr first thought on coming to was their gold. Had they lost It? Had it been stolon? Thoy directed search" for It In tho wagon, and thero It lay In a largo canvas sack, untouched by tho men who had cared for tho mules. Whon It was weighed, tho men found themselves In possession of $15,000 for a single day's work! Tho story of tholr find mode Blake u desortod village In a fow hours. A stampodo for gold was on. For days nnd weeks It continued, but never successfully. Their .trail had been obliterated In tho winds that continually sway the sand from duno to dune and obliterate ceaselessly through ages. It was a week boforo Jamison and FIoldB could travel. Thoy packed up at tho end of that tlmo and In their swaying buckboard they drove to Needles, whoro Flolds with his share of tho gold started for tho east to secure capital for develop ment. Jmnlson turned his mulos back to Homer then, and on back to tho Pluto Bond to his In dians, arriving thoro in. a delirium caused by n relapso Into fevor acquired on tho trip from tho diggings. Ills squaw nursed him tenderly nnd medlclno men of the tribe gavo him herbs, but Jamison died. Fields camo back when ho heard of this. He had a chicken heart induced by past experiences, and nothing would Induce him to start out nlono on quest of wealth that lay hidden In tho desert near tho threo peaks. Ho sent othor men for him, giving them a map of tho country as ho had conceived It, but thoy nil failed In tho relocation of tho treasure Threo men rodp leisurely out of tho Pnnamlnt rango of mountains nt the edgo of that famous sink of mystery, Death Valley, and on across country toward San Bernardino, their destination. They wore all on good horses, had ample packs, and ten-gnllon wator canteens. They rode through tho heat of tho day, tholr horses kicking up tho dust of the desert and leaving behind a contin uous hazy vnpor which always distinguishes any thing of Hfo that moves In the desert wastes. During tho heat of tho day thoy stopped to camp In tho shade of their horses, which wero watered and fed. Soon thoy started on. This time thero was not tho samo certainty, tho same equanimity, among them, and a quarrel aroso- as to tho proper direction to take. They quarraled all that afternoon, and finding their water-supply practically all gone on the following morning, tholr words almoBt resulted In blows. They sepa rated. Ono of thorn, Frank Golcr, struck out alono In an easterly direction, while tho other two went south. By noon of tho second day Golcr had arrived at a series of low hills that lay directly In his path. Ho crossed them, and on tho farther sldo discov ered a canyon Into which ho plunged without the least fear and wltlfrenewed hope of salvation. It contained abundant vegetation, nnd what vaa moro than all the rest, it carried In Its deepest embrace a little mountain stream. Arriving at its banks, Goler, nearly dollilons from lack of water, gavo his horso Its freedom and dropped to tho edge of the stream and began "lapping up tho cool, bright water. And while ho drank, the rays of the sun, penetrating the foliage of nn overhanging cottonwood, glinted upon some thing on tho bottom of the stream something yellow Just beyond tho touch vof his lips. It was a nugget weighing several ounces. There wero others near It, and Goler, bewildered at his good fortune, pulled forth three of tho pieces of gold -and then stopped to think of food, for he had not taken nourishment for more than a day. Ho tucked the nuggets Into the bosom of his shirt, caught his horse, mounted, and then pro ceeded with all possible speed down tho canyon, taking little time even to make proper survey of the location of the treasure. Finally, nfter sev eral hours of rough riding he camo out upon a plain. Just ahead of him he saw what apparent ly had been the bed of a big body of water. It was all dried out and lay In a straight east erly lino with Mount San Antonio, or Mount Baldy, as It Is more generally known In the south west. Tho snow-capped peak gave Goler encour; ageinent, and also Indicated the proper direction to tho little mining town at tho foot of tho famous Arrowhead, where tho Indians found relief from many Ills In tho waters that purled from several springs. It required another day for him to reach this place, nnd when he did he was completely ex hausted and his horso fearfully Jaded and ready to collapse. Three weeks elapsed before he had fully'recov ered, and then he showed the treasures that be had collected. "Why, there Is enough of this stuff to load sev eral wagons where I found It, and I am going to bring in a load In less than a month," he assured some of his friends. He at onco set out to fit up a wagon with broad rimmed wheels, light canvas top and a team of sturdy horses. The day ho set out, a large gathering watched him off and several prospectors followed, hoping to be in on the wealth that he had discovered. In a few days they returned, disgusted with tho fact that Goler apparently did not know whither he was traveling. In a month he came back, tired out and disgruntled because he had been unablo to relocate the same chain of hills and the hidden waters. Six different times ho went In search of his wealth and always returned with the same story ono of reverses and loss, until Anally ho had spent all of the money he had accumulated in a lifetime and had to give up tho quest. It is'generally conceded that the Goler discov ery has since been found. His first location was in 1886. In 1891 an old and odd character, Hen Moss, who made his homo In San Bernardino, started out on one of his regular prospecting trips. One of his burros wandered away from the' other throe, and Moss started to follow the lost animal with his entire train. Tho wandering burro found a canyon nnd In )t water, and In this way led Moss to tho discovery of a gold deposit. In a few hours ho panned out several ounces of dust with his horn spoon nnd also found two or threo fair-sized nuggets. The discovery 'went to bis head. Ho failed to place Ills locating stakes and hurried back to San Ber nardino to celebrate his good fortune. With borrowed capital he flttod up a secocf tlmo, and when he left town ho might have been mistaken nt a distance for the Pled Piper of Humolln. Moro than hnlf tho male Inhabitants . of Son Bernardino were nt his back, all equipped for a long journey with pack train or on horso. Moss tried to throw them off his trail, doubled on them, returned to San Bernardino, but nil to no avail. ' "Guess I might as well take you along," he said one day when his patlenco had been frazzled to a rag. This tlmo ho proceeded directly to tho distant range in tho open desert. And whon ho neared the canyon those who wero following him realized tho nearness of tho end of their Journey. Moss spurred his horse ahead and loft his pack train to care for Itself. Thero were better horses In that group, and race as he might, his hand unsteady and his saddle not so well filled as others, ho was overtaken and passed. Tho stampeded prospectors, filled with lust for gold, had reached their goal, and old Hon Moss was ono of tho last to arrive on tho ground of his discovery. Ho staked what proved to bo tho poorest claim of all tho eighty that wore staked out. Tho men nil figured thnt the had como to tho old Color discovery, and therefore thoy so named tho district, which was at onco organized. Tho Goler district Is located In what is now Kern county, California, about twenty-eight mlloB north of Mojavo, a llttlo mining town, on tho Southern Pacific. The creek proved ono of tho richest ever found In California. Soveral hundred thousand dollars wero taken from a comparative!? small area "THE GRANARY OF NORTH AMERICA." GOVERNOR SULZER SAYS THAT OF WESTERN CANADA. Tho closo tics of friendship exist ing between tho United States and Canada wtro dwelt upon in addresses by Premier Itobert L. Borden, of Can ada, and Governor Sulzor, nt tho an nual dinner of tho University Club of Albany. "Canada and tho United States," said Premier Borden, "havo a common horitngo In tho language, tho litera ture, tho lawB, tho Institutions and tho traditions which havo como down to them from tho men of bygono days. 'Terhapa no moro inotructlvo object lesson ever haB been given to tho world than tho four thousand miles of undefended boundary lino from tho Atlantic to tho Pacific, which bears ellent but eloquent testimony to tho mutual confldenco and respect of tho two nations. Tlmo will shortly placo upon tho brow of each nation tho lau rel of ono hundred years of peaco. It matters not so much as to tho form of the outward celebration, but Jot us hope that its full significance may sink deep into tho hearts of both na tions, andthat, whether north or south of tho boundary, we may stand with bowed and reveront heads, offering grateful thanks for tho DIvIno blessing of peace, and earnest prayers that in tho century to come, mutual confldouce, good-will and respect may truly ani mate the ideals and aspirations of both nations." Referring to tho natural resources possessed by tho United States and Canada, particularly along tho St. Lawrence River, tho premier urged that they be "preserved and developed for the people." Governor Sulzer predlctod that tho "Great Canadian Northwest Is deslgnod to become, before long, tho granary of North America." "Many of our best citizens, I regret to say," said the governor, "are leav ing the States of tho west and going into the Canadian northwest, hocause of tho fertility of its soil, the lib erality of the Canadian government nnd the ability of thoBO people to bet ter their conditions here. "We should extend to them a help ing hand in their onward march of progress. Instead of closing our doors by tariff barriers against these coun tries and their products, In my opinion, wo should open them wider and do everything In our power to facilitate closer commercial relations- We want their products and they want our prod ucts, and all restrictions to prevent a fairer and freer exchange of goods, wares and merchandise should, in so far as possible, be eliminated."
