THE GILPIN OBSERVER.
YOL. XIII.
The Observer Mining Department.
CALIFORNIA MINE—QUARTZ HILL.
Last Saturday morning the water
etood ton feet below the 1,500 foot station
in the main shaft. The Observer re
porter was informed that the water is
now being lowered at the rate of three
feet per day. The shaft is 2,220 feet in
depth. As soon as the water is lowered
down below the 1,700-foot station con
nection will be made with the workings
of the Hidden Treasure, west of the main
California.
MAY OUTPUT OF THE COOK COED
MINING COMPANY.
Mr. Clarenc K. Colvin, of the
Gold Mining company, last Saturday tel
ephoned the following to The Observer
as the output of that property for the
month of May: Stamp mill ore, 3,400
tons; smelting iron, 133 tons. The stamp
millo re yielded 675 tons of concentrates.
This property ranks second in the
county in its output of ore monthly, only
being exceeded by the Kansas-Bur
roughs Consolidated Mining company,
whose output for the same month was
479 tramway cars, or 4,070 tons.
As Mr. Colvin gains depth in the work
ings of the cage shaft, there is a corres
ponding increase in the ore values.
RICH ORE.
The home pool leasing on the After
Supper lode, at Black Hawk, received
from E. E. Burlingame, of Denver, a cer
tificate of assay made at his laboratory
and assay office in Denver, which gave
131.60-100 ounces of gold, and 74.40 100
ounces silver per ton. Two other sam
ples assayed by H. H. Clark, of the
Chamberlain Sampling works, in Black
Hawk, gave respectively 250.79-100
ounces gold— 83,047.40 and• 130.76 100
ounces g01d—82,648.60 per ton. Pretty
ich ore; good enough for the oldest in
habitant. The After Supper is consid
ered to be the same vein as the Sleepy
Hollow and Fisk vein.
GII.PIN COUNTY SAFE.
Said a prominent mining man of the
county in the office of the Teller House,
Saturday evening: “The question of
whether the requirement by law that!
miners, stamp mill and smelter employes
should work but eight hours a day, is a
public necessity, will unquestionably be J
tested in the proper courts, but no mat
ter what the result, Gilpin county will
go on in the even tenor of its way pro
ducing ore. The working men in this
state have a great deal at stake, more so |
than in any other state in the country, |
and they cannot afford to do anything to
interfere in the future. Tuere seems to
be a desire on the part of employers of
labor to meet the employes in a fair and
friendly spirit, and whatever may occur
clscwhero Gilpin county is fortunately
safe.”
' LACK OF PERSISTENCE.
The result of carelessness and lack of
persistence in prospecting is illustrated
by a recent occurrence in San Juan I
county, says the Denver Republican. I
Several years ago the Kansas was located
in Ice Lake Basin, and a 200 foot tunnel
drivon on what was supposed to be the
vein. The ore gradually pinched out.
and when the breast showed nothing but
barren rock the claim was abandoned. It
was subsequently relocated, and after
ward sold to George Lacey, who ran a
short cross-cut and opened a fine body
of ore. It is now shown that the tunnel
followed a narrow stringer and for more
than 100 feet ran into the country rock
alongside the vein. The property has
been rechriwtenod the Little Emma, and
is now the chief lead producer of the
district.
ANOTHER MINING DECISION.
The secretary of the interior last Fri
day affirmed the action of the general
land office canceling Anselmo B. Smith’s
mineral land entry upon tho Belmont,
Pilgrim, Flora Thorne, Annie May and
Little Fred claims in Colorado. All of
those claims, except a part of the last,
lay within the limits of a certain placer
claim previously patented to the Alice
Mining company, Clear Creek county.
F. Smith was allowed opportunity to ap
ply for a.henring to determine whether
the lodes embraced in his entry were
known to exist at the time of application
for patent, and this opportunity was ex
tended four or five times, but he nlways
failed to make the showing, and the ac
tion against him has therefore been af
firmed.
A NEXT THE TRUSTS.
•The Guggenheims, owners of the large
refitieiies at Pueblo, Colorado, and Perth
Amboy, New Joraoy, havo organized an
exploration company to mine the miner
als which will be treated at their plunts.
This action is taken to protect their
own interests, They havo larg mining
interests in Mexico, and it is believed
that the first explorations will be mado
in that republic.
COVERS MILE MITE ONI.Y.
Tho Court of Appeals of Colorado in
the case of the Colorado Iron works vs.
Taylor, held that under tho law* of Colo
orado (1893, pnge 320, section 7), extend
ing a mechanics’ leiu over so much of
the lands on which the buildingi may be
erected as may be necessary for the con
venient use and occupation of such
buildings, the liens for a stamp mill
covers the mill site only; and not the
lode mining claims from which tho ores
to be worked are mined.
AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
The supremo court of Nevada held in
the case of Sanders vs. Noble, question
of right to change course after posting
notice, that under tho revised statutes of
the United States, sections 2,3, and 4,
requiring a mining location to be dis
tinctly marked on the ground, so that its
boundaries can be readily traced, and
all records to contain a sufficient de
scription to identify it: and Police Code,
sections .3610, and .3812. requiring the lo
cator to post a notice at the point of dis
covery, giving the length along the vein
each way and its general course as near
as may be, and within 90 days thereafter
to file a declaratory statement giving a
description of the claim sufficient to
identify it, the locator having posted the
notice stating the general course of the
vein, may swiog his claim in any direc
tion required to include the vein within
the 90 days, and this although the notice
laid the course of tho points of the com
pass, no bad faith being shown.
DO GOLD NUGGETS GROW!
“Do gold nuggets grow?” is a question
that has been asked many times says the
Mining and Scientific Press. Under
certain circumstances they undoubtedly
do. Several years ago a prospector
picked up a nugget in a California gravel
mine which weighed 8600. Ever since
that time this nugget has steadily grown
until now reference is mado to the find
ing of the lump it is usually stated that
it weighed 81,*500. In a few vear9 it will
probably havo grown to 88,000, and pos
sibly in time it may reach 800,000. There
is no real evidence to indicate that nug
gets grow in any other manner than
above described.
IMPORTANT DECISION.
The United States Court of Appeals,
holding court at Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
last Wednesday, handed dowu an import
ant decision affecting the alien labor law.
T-ie dec : sion interprets tho law so as to
apply solely to common laborers, exempt
ing clerks and all kinds of skilled arti
sans. Judges Woods, Jenkins and
Brown constituting tne entire court, con
cur in tho decision, which holds that it
was the intent of congress solely to shut
out the importation of common laborers
under contract t » work in mines, iu lum
bering camps and on railroads.
RAISED THEIR WAGES.
A Colorado Springs special to Satur
dnv's Denver Republican says an in
crease of wages. averaging 15 percent,
and atfectiug 125 men, was announced
that <iny by the Colorado Philadelphia
Induction company, whose plant is at
Colorado City.
The increase comes voluntarily, tho
men having mado no complaint what
ever of low wages. The reduction plant
has been in operation about three years,
and is one of the most profitable in that
part of the state. It treats Cripple
Creek ores ulruost exclusively.
COMING TO THE FRONT.
Jamestown, Boulder county, notwith
standing her unsavory record and boom j
days of long ago, is surely coming to the
front this year. The Boulder Represent
ative claims that Central district lias the
ores and men backed by ample exper
ience and wealth are going right after
and getting the real stutF. The day for
poking fun af“Jimtown” has passed.

ACTION OF STAMP MIDI. EMPLOYES.
The following is a verbatim copy of
the typewritten circulars issuod by the
secretary of tho meeting of tho mill em
ployes held in Blnck Hawk, Thursday
evening, June 8, 1899, a copy of which
has been loft with the mill owners, run

CENTRAL CITY, COLO., THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1899.
Hawk, hold in Scandia lodgo room on
the evening of Juno 8, 1399, it was the
unanimous decision of the men present,
that the recent act of the legislature
making eight hours a legal day’s work
should be observed by all mill hands,
and mill owners as well. The following

That, unless the above petition, which
we believe to be just and right between
employes is favorably acted upon by
each and every employer on or before
the 16th day of June, 1899, wo shall con
sider it our duty to withdraw ourselves
from your employment at 12 o’clock on
said 15th day of June, 1899.

A Silver Plume correspohdent of the
Denver Evening Times says that the
zinc ore which has been shipped from
the mines of that section, consigned to
the Humphrey Smelting works, at Up
land, Indiana, has proven so satisfactory
that Mr. Humphrey has notified his
agent at Silver Plume, that he wants 50
cars per month. With that end in view
the present force of fifty miners now en
gaged in taking out zinc ore is to be in
creased at Silver Plume.
The Boulder Tribune very appropri
ately observes that the decision of the
mine owners of the leading districts of
Boulder county to observe the eight hour
law, without cutting wages is a great
concession to the laboring interests and
for the good of all concerned; it is to be
hoped that the plan will prove as suc
cessful as promised by the promoters.
A party of leasers in the Fisk mine
have struck a body of smelting ore which
6hows considerable free gold. Another
strike has been made in the East Whit

west level, which carries values of 8179
per ton. Mr. Sam Miller, owner of the
property, keeps the 15 stamp mill recent
ly leased by him employed night and
day.
Buy Colorado mining machinery, if
yfcu are in need of such equipment. It
is by far the best made, and being on the
ground Colorado manufacturers can
keep you in ropairs, without bankrupt
ing you. Besides, every mechanic kept
at work in Colorado means good luck for
Colorado people, and prosperity for the
merchants.
At n recent meeting of the mine-own
era held in Boukler, it was decided to
pay their men 82.50 per day for the eight
hour shift, nnd only such time ns has
been worked is to ba considered. Night
shifts are also to be eight' hours. At
Ward the mine-owners are paying 83 for
eight hours. At the Big Five mine a
compromise was proposed of 62 80 tor
eight hours. The miners refused to uc
cept tho terms.
Charles W. Miller, for many years con
nected with the Smuggler mine at As
pen, hns succeeded Nute Mansfield at
the Smuggler-Union* at' Telluride, San-
Miguel county. The latter has been in
charge of that mine for nine years, and
ail of the more than 30 miles of workings
in this great mine have been constructed
under his supervision. Mr. M msfield
has never been a week away from the
mice during the entire niue years. Al
though urgod to retain his position he
declined doing so. This is the mine of
which Charles M. Becker is tho mining
engineer,
i The Court of Appeals of Colorado, in
the case of Fleming vs. Daly, held re
garding tho locution and acquisition of
claims on the public domain, that when
the undisputed evidenoa shows that if a
vein was discovered in a discovery shaft
sunk as required by General Statutes,
section 2,400, tho court need not, on the
issue of discovery, confine the qm*s'ion
to tho discovery of tho shaft, nor define
a legal discovery shaft. That tho stat
ute required the locator to sink a discov
ery shaft on tho lode to show a well de
fined crevice, hut it does not require the
walls of the vein to be disclosed. When
in a contest over conflicting mining
claims the evidence showed tne land to
belong to tho other of tho claimants, it
is proper to refuse a charge that if
neither was found to be entitled, neither
could recover. And, where tho jury in
such a contest is permitted to view the
ground, so as to enable thorn to intelli
gently consider the evidence, it is proper
to refuse a charge authorizing them t»»
make independent investigation of their
own.

ACCIDENTAL DROWNING.
Of Wilmot H. Luke In Die South Moulder
Last Saturday Evening.
The citizens of Central were terribly
shocked last Saturday night about 11
o’clock, by the arrival hero of Mr. Wil
liam Reed, who announced that Wilmot
H. Lake, of this city, had been drowned
in the South Boulder below Rollinsville
at 5:30 o’clock that evening. Mr. Reed,
accompanied by Wilmot H. Lake left the
city about 3 o’clock that afternoon for
Eldora, for the purpose of examining
some placer ground, both riding saddle
animals. After reaching and crossing
the county bridge over the South Boul
der at Rollinsville, they took down the
north side of that stream on what i 9
known as the roadbed of the old Denver,
Utah and Pacific railroad.
After going down about a mile they
came to a point of rocks, which extended
nearly into the water, leaving only a
small trail to pass by. Not knowing
whether they could pass on or not, Lake
crossed the creek on a foot-bridge with
the idea of taking a look ahead, and
while looking around tho puint, a boul
der upon which his foot was resting slip
ped and he was precipitated into the
water. At this point tho creek is very
narrow, and rushes by at a torrent gait,
leaving a person no chance to recover
bimself, while it would be most suicidal
for any one to jump in to the rescue.
Lake fell on his back and was quickly
lost to sight; his friend Reed, who had
remained with the horses immediately
followed down the creek, hoping to be of
some assistance either in assisting Lake
or in rescuing the body, but it was of no
avail, and after going up and down the
creek for a distance of about two mile 3,
a couple of hours he started for Central,
to summon assistance. Being a stran
ger, he lost his way, and for quite a while
wandered around until he met a miner
who put him on the road, reaching here
about 11 o’clock.
The news of Lake’s sudden death soon
sproad, and by 12 o’clock, midnight, I.
N. Welch, of the Register-Call, Fritz J.
Altvater, of The Observer, Percy R.
Alsdorf, Peter Stangier, William Reed,
David Marshall and others started on
horseback to the scene of the drowning.
They arrived there about 3 o'clock Sun
day morning, and as soon as it was good
daylight commenced active search for
the body of the unfortunate young man.
After about an hour and a halfs search
the body was seen at 5:30 o’clock by I.
N. Welch lodged against s »mo driftwood
in the center of the creek about 3 X) yards
below where he fell in. By hard work
the body was taken from the water and
placed on thv north side of the creek.
Mr. Fred Gooch, postmaster of Rollins
ville, furnished a conveyance and started
with the remains for Central, arriving
here abjut 11 o’clock. In the meantime
a portion of the rescuing party rode to
Perigo, the nearest telephone communi
cation, wh*re they phoned a message to
this city, ns also to Boulder, of the recov
ery of the b idv. Messages were also
seat t > B tul I*r 11 the Mis tnic lodge in
that city, and parties were put on watch
at the creek in Marshall ti watch for the
body should it come by, while another
party was started up the creek on tho
lookout.
Tho g*ief or tho father, wh ) Iris been
in ill lualth for s >.u i length of litne, on
receiving the n »ws of has »n’s untimely
death, was indeed heart rinding, tho
grief of the mother was equally as ex
pre si\e; the only sister, Mi-s Lilly Lake
taking the nows with iu »re composure,
but her grief while not so expressive, it
was none the less deep-seated. The fa
ther, mother and sister found kind neigh
bors and friends who comforted them
through the vigils of tho night, and since
the body was brought to the family resi
de nco, on Lawrence streot, this city. In
their s »d bereavement they havo tin.* sin
cere condolence of tho citizens of Con
tral and county at Urge where they have
resided so long, and where Wilmot had
grown from boyhood to manho.jd.
Wilmot 11. Lake was 27 years of ago,
and the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Byron
S. Lake, highly respected citizans of
Central City. He was a bright, prorais
ing young man of irreproachable chnrac
acter, and had endeared himself to a
large circle of friends and acquaintances
by his many manly* virtues. He wan an
honored member of Central lodge No. 0,
A. F. & A. M. His uncle, Mr. Henry
Lake, residing near Fort Logan, arrived
here Sunday evening, returning to Den
ver Monday afternoon, to make arrange
ments for the interment of his remains
at Fuirmount cemetery, that city.
The obsequies oesurred yesterday
from the residence of his parents under
tho auspices of Central lodge No. G t
and uh'To short religious services were
held, after which tho remains were ea
corted by the lodge nnd sympathizing
friends to the depot in Black Hawk,
where they were placed on the pnssenger
train. The lodge as a body accompanied
the remains to Denver, where convey
ances were in waiting. After arriving At
the cemetery the beautiful and impres
sive ritual of the Maaona waa said, and
the mortal remains were laid at rest
Peace to his ashee.
NO. 10.
The flowers sent to the house by the
friends of the young man wore numer
ous and by far the most peautiful ever
seen in this city. The designs were very
handsome, being the artistic work of
Mr. Cockburn, the florist. Those most
noticeable were a square and compass
circled by a large wreath, of roses, car
nations and lillies, from the Masons, a
largo pillow of carnation and roses with
the word “Will” in the centre, from the
Bachelor's Club, an anchor and base
with the words “Our Friend,” roses and
carnations, a most beautiful crescent
wreath of roses, carnations and lillies, a
circular wreath of roses and carnations,
and a large number of beautiful bou
quets.
Still a Mystery.
The whereabouts of the little girl of
Mr. and Mrs. Luis Firjanchich, of Rus
sell district, who strayed away from the
residence of her parents, near the head
of Virginia canon, last Saturday morn
ing, is still shrouded in mystera, the ef
forts of the several rescuing parties hav
ing so far been fruitless in locating her.
There has been numerous conflicting
reports regarding the little one who is
only 3 years and 4 months old, and who
cannot speak the English language. Yes
terday a number of mounted volunteers
from this city left in the morning and
returned about 5 o’clock, but they were
as much mystified on their return as
when leaving here. A thorough search
has been kept up ever since the first
alarm was given, the search being con
tinued over into Clear Creek county, at
Idaho Springs, and on above to Free
land.
The Neef Bros. Weiner Maerzen Beer
is a home product and is made out of
the choicest hops and barley.
Cockburn, the florist, can furnish you
with fresher flowers, prettier designs at
lower prices than you can get in Denver.
Give him a trial order and you are sure
to be pleased.
