CQUMTY THAT MADE COLORADO AKA BUILT ounn THE GILPIN OBSERVER. VOLUME XXVII. MINING ITEMS OF INTEREST The Richardson mine, operated by the Bull Moose Mining company, 1h produc ing and shipping steadily. Three lots of ore was settled for Tuesday and re sults were satisfactory to the operators. Manager Alsdorf, of the Calhoun mine In Leavenworth gulch, made a shipment of smelting ore yesterday %o the Cham berlain sampler from the drift on the West Calhoun, that netted $65 to the ton. Manhlre and Co., on the Midas mine, near the Hidden Treasure mill at Black Hawk, have made their second shipment since beginning work some few weeks ago. The ore Improves In value as the drift Is extended, and the last ship ment netted thirty dollars to the ton. The Gomer mine in Bussell Gulch, op erated by the Bull Moose Mining com pany, is drifting west on the 200-foot level on a streak of low grade ore from two to three feet wide. When the objective point Is reached (the Pitts burg), -a shoot of good ore Is expected. The Installing of the new plant of machinerv at the Castle Bock mine Is now complete and underground working will be resumed. The company has had a new 26x26 boiler house and a 14x16 compressor house Just erected. A new hoist has been added and a compound compressor, and hereafter all work will be done by power drills. This mine has large quantities of ore blocked out and In the future we may look to the Cas tle Bock as one of our great producers. Joseph Tuckfleld Is the resident mana ger. Manager S. T. Harris, of the Rock ford mine, has hIB new road completed, and it Is a pleasing sight to see the many teams wending their way along the side of that picturesque mountain, laden with high grade ore of the first class and with mill ore. This mine for years was an old abandoned prospect, until Mr. Harris obtained possession, and by practical experience and good Judgment, has succeeded In making It one of the foremost shippers of the county. Another Instance where min ing is a safe arid sure business when placed In the hands of safe and practi cal mining men. During the past week we have had telegrams from the east, asking about another abandoned mine In Bussell Gulch, and after examination, replied favorably to the telegram, ami ere long we may expect to see eastern capital opening up another Richardson or Rockford.

(???) ASKS FOR A, CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION I have Introduced in the House a res olution calling for an exhaustive inves tigation of the Colorado Coal Strike. I have had s >me experie-ice w ith Colo rado's industrial wars. For 20 years as an active newspaper man I have been called upon to repo-t 'hese unfortunate conflicts. I know what they have cost the state in blood, ami money and in good name, and it makes me sick at neart when I contemplate the possibili ty of the commonwealth being plunged into another cruel senseless conflict. In Qod's name, has Colorado learned nothing from Peabody and Peabody ism? Is it possible that the people of the centennial state are so benighted or Its government so lmpetent that when dlf terences arise between employer and employed that appeal must be made to the arbitrament of the gun and the bludgeon? Have the voters forgotten that only a few years ago they author ized a bond issue to meet the expen ses of the "Cripple Creek War”? Can we afford to squander millions on in dustrial wars while our state education al institutions are appealing in vain for the funds needed to render them effi cient? Only the other day I read of machine guns being imported into Colorado by a corporation, and I am informed that hundreds of so-called "gunmen” have been brought into the state by the same concern and Its associates. A friend driving from Trinidad, des cribes an "armored car” which these • gunmen” have constructed and which they expect to use in their operations. And this is the Twentieth century, and we live in what we boast is the most enlightened commonwealth in the greatest republic on earth! In the same paper in which I saw the story of the machine gun I read the annual report of the officers of the Oolorado Fuel & Iron Co. They said that last year was the most profitable year in the company’s history. They had cleaned up several millions, and a large part of it from coal lands own ed by the people of Colorado and op erated by the company at a low royal ty! Yet in the face of this unprecedent ed prosperity, the company is prepared to plunge the state into a condition bordering on civil wur, rather than ar bitrate the grievances which have caus ed 85 per cent of its miners to quit work. I hold no grief for the striking min er*. Their claims may or may not be Just, but they have offered to sub mit their cause to the* Judgement of an impartial tribunal, and to thut ex tent their position is sounder in morals than that of their opponents. In addition, it is u matter of com mon knowledge that industrial and poli tical conditions in lais Animas and In Huerfano counties have for many years been a menace ami a disgrace to our state. For more than ten years the coal companies have owned every offi cial In both counties. Last full they lost the district Judge and district at torney, but that has been their sole de feat, Business men who have dared to protest have been persecuted, and In many cases driven out of the com munity. The administration of the law became a howling farce. As an exam ple: hundreds of men have been kill ed in the southern Colorado coal mines during those ten years, yet no coro ner’s Jury, except In one case, ha* re turned a verdict holding the coal com panies responsible. In every Instance. , nil the blame was placed upon the dead ! miner, who, of course could not speak for himself. Ample evidence to sustain these and many other charges of even greater Im port will he presented to the congres sional committee authorized by my res olution. I am confident that the res olution will be adopted. Owing to the peculiar parliamentary situation In the house Just now, there may be some de lay, but thut will he only temporary. And when we turn the searchlight of national publicity on the Huerfano and Las Animas situations, I believe that the gentlemen who make their head quarters ut 26 Waif Street. New York, and direct the investment of the Rocke feller minimis will decide that a change in policy is needed, and that the pall of this great Industrial conflict will be lifted from Colorado.

Coast and Geodetic Survey last June, placing Central City in latitude 39° 48' and in longitude 105° 32' and magnetic declina tion 42° 27' east. We think this Is the first time we have known the exact lo cation of our town as regards latitude and longitude. The observations were taken near the I. O. O. F. cemetery. District Attorney, S. W. Johnson, of the first judilcal district, since the dis covery of the bodies of the three in fants In a house at Black Hawk, has spt-nt considerable time In Central City and Black Hawk, investigating the crime. His investigations have woven a robe of circumstantial evidence around a man and woman and an arrest may be expected at any time. In the mean time, a sharp surveillance is being main tained and should they attempt to leave town, the arrest would be made at once. A telegram was received In Central Saturday of last week, announcing the death of Father Xaughton’s who tiled In Chicago that morning.

Friends of Father Naugh ton anti his brother express deep sym pathy over the loss of their parent. The elder Naughton visited in Central sev eral months ago and is remembered by a number of the citizens yho made his acquaintance at that time. Tonight at midnight, the license of tlje corner saloon, known for years as Goldman s, expires, and the business will be discontinued. The stock and fixtures will be removed to Denver.

During the years that Mr. Gold man was In business, he made the ac quaintance of travelers from all parts of the globe, and Goldman’s corner was a popular resort for many vllstors. Tomorrow night Is Hallowe'en and is the occasion for the committing of all kinds df nuisances and pranks by the youngsters. It Is so called as being the eve or vigil of All Hallows, or festival of All Saints, and Is associated In the popular Imagination, with the pr % al ence of supernatural influences, and Is clearly a relic, of pagan times. In the north of England, Hallowe’en is known as Nuteracx night. In Scotland the ceremonies of tfce eve were formerly re garded In a highly superstitious light, and Burns' “Hallowe'en" gives a humor ous anti richly Imaginative presentment of the usual Ceremonies as practised In Scottish rural districts In nls day. The principal object of curiosity in con sulting the future, was to discover whd should be the partner In life. Popular belief ascribed to children born on Hal lowe'en the faculty of perceiving ami bolding converse with supernatural be* Ings. CARD OF THANKS.

The money now Invested in dredges, mills etc. In the islands being over $2,000,000. In 1912, tne islands produced SBOO,OOO In gold, which was an Increase of 400 per cent over the previous year, and thus far this year ' $1,600,000.00 has been produced, showing that with mod ern mills and treatment, the product Is bound to increase from year to year. There are large deposits of gas pro ducing coal on the islands, but steam coal will always have to be imported, unless discovered in the future. Large deposits of cement making material are to be found and a plant is now un der construction for the making of the famous Portland cement for the Orien tal markets. There are also large Iron deposits, but owing to the large export duty on iron, the mines cannot be op erated at present. Steps are now be ing taken by their governmnt to Induce the U. S. congress to set aside this duty, that they may export to the Ori ent. The only silver known to exist Is mixed with tne gold and is a by-pro duct. The gold quartz found In the veins is not complex and appears In large bodies of a medium grade, and varying In width from four to sixty feet. It Is not a country for the poor man to mine In, owing to the heavy expense of machinery, etc. The ores are for the most part quartz or caleide, con taining manganese and sulphides, the sulphides being very small, even at a great depth, and is adapted to cyanide treatment. Some of the placers work ed by dredges are exceptionally rich,and large dividends are being paid by companies operating them. These mines were known and worked by the natives before the advent of Americans or even Spaniards, who con quered the islands In the sitxeenth cen tury. The natives drove their drifts or tunnels and sunk their shafts without ths use ot steel or iron implements, or the use of powder or dynamite. Tneir method was not only crude, but pOYjd In. the extreme, and confirms the old adage, "Necessity is the mother of In vention'’. They built fires against the breast of the drift anil when, the rock was heated to a high • degree, water was thrown against the rock, thereby producing an explosion which shatter ed the rock similar to a blast. There are to be see'n to this day tunnels of from two to three hundred feet long which were driven by this slow and tedious method. The ore or quartz.was taken to the surface, where women crushed It to a fine dust In stone mor tars. The dust was then panned and the gold sold to Chinese merchants. Their records show that the mining wages paid at that period would only equal 20 cents per week In American money, and consequently only th% rich est of their veins were worked. In the shafts bamboo ladders were used and a bamboo wtdlass with native hemp ropes and bamboo baskets were also used to hoist the ore. With the advent of the Spaniards, the Mexican arastra was used, greatly increasing the pro duction. When the Americans assum ed charge of the Islands, stamp mills were erected, but unfortunately the mills were not adapted to the ores and fail ure was the result. Within the past ten years, the government has erected a testing plant under the supervision of Mr. Fannfsg and mills are now being designed, capable of treating the ores successfully. Mr. Fanning, before re turning Intends to familiarize himself With our different character of ores, our methods of treatment, etc., and give the Islands the benefit of all ir.oaern method* In the mining and treatment of ores, amd In the future we may look to the Philippines us an auxiliary In sup plying the medium that moves the com merce of the world.
