DAVIS IS FOR GOOD ROADS Senator Has Sound Views on the Subject. TO RAISE MONEY IS THE FIRST NECESSITY Advocates the Issuance of Bonds to Provide the Needed Where withal for the Purpose. Editor Calareras Citizen: In re sponse to your courteous request that I send . you some lines upon what ap pears to me to be the direction in which more immediate public action 1 should be concentrated for the advance ment of mining interests, I would say the two main problems that confront us in the quartz-mining counties of the Mother Lode are: 1, that of obtaining a cheap, continuous motive power, and 2, that of good roads. "Whether the improvement of local conditions are to be attained by legis- Ilative relief or through the median of intelligent, concerted action of com mittees composed of public-spirited citizens all permanent betterment will be'the result of organized effort. "Without some local organization to ad vocate any proposition, no result, how ever, will ever be attained. To the end that no ulterior object may creep in, this organization should be abso lutely non-political. In all of '■' the smaller counties there is room but for one such organization, and in Cala veras county we have such an organiz ation made to our hand in the Cala- Iveras Branch of the State Miners' As- This association can be the nucleus of all public effort concerning anything even remotely connected with mining. It can, as part of the reason for its ex istence, take up the problem of con tinuous motive power, can affiliate itself with the California Water and Forest Association, or the California Association for the Storage of Flood "Waters, '. or the San Joaquin Valley Commercial Association, and accredit delegates to those organizations, and thus thoroughly inform the central or ganizations of the local conditions in Calaveras county. Tho road question is equally germane to the purposes of. its organization. "If the Calaveras County Miners' Association," says the Mining and Scientific Press of Decem ber 16, 1899, "can awaken local public opinion, can induce the Supervisors to realize that the annual gain to their county, would be many times what a system of good roads would cost, and can keep at the idea till they get it in practical shape, they will have done a great work. "Without belittling ad vance in mining methods, it may be said that no progress in mining, no 'revolution' in the science or art of economically treating ore, is so impor tant an item in the coat and profit of mining as cheap travel. Bad roads keep out investors, kill enterprise, make costly all movement and keep a community behind the times. " If the best results are to be obtained the constitution of the organization, will have to be popularized. It will ac-,' complish nothing simply to have a 1a 1 skeleton organization — with more offi cers than privates — to meet once a year, ■ choose delegates to the annual meeting; of the California State Miners' Associa tion and have a few mining superin tendents collect enough money from the men working for their corporations to pay pro rata for the delegates pre scribed in the by-laws of the central organization. . What we require is a continuously active, live local body; not an annual resurrection of a dead one. Membership should be increased, meetings should be frequent and in different localities, and constant cor respondence should keep the members informed of what is going on in the as sociation. The impulse should come from the members to the officers and In that way the programme for public improvement developed and spread abroad. I will contend as strenuously as any one that executive committees must direct and, in a sense, control, but they must have a real, active and even enthusiastic membership behind then?, if they would keep their organiz ation alive. ■*' ..__, The Calaveras County Miners' As sociation cannot bend its present ener-* gles to the agitation of any more worthy proposition that that of good 1 roads. The plan in its beginning will have to be a county plan. It has never been possible to commit tho National or State government to road construc tion or maintenance except in very sparsely settled districts, and in dis tricts that present almost insurmount able natural obstacles. In this -State we did by statute create a State Bureau pf Highways, in 1893, and a great deal has been accomplished in the way of preliminary surveys and the collection of necessary data of road construction. Tho Commissioners even outlined and incorporated into a bill a whole system of State highways, ■ covering all the main thoroughfares throughout the State, a plan too comprehensive to be adopted at a jump, but still a plan which discloses fully the enormous proportion Qf the prqblem qf State highway construction. To curtail ex. penso. the Commission has been re duced to one Commissioner, and at the last session of the Legislature a com mencement 111 a comprehensive plan of State construction was made by an appropriation of. $25,000 to continue the Tioga road into Mono and a fur ther appropriation of $25,000 to con nect the El Dorado turnpike with Lake The Amador Ledger. Tahoe. Both of these roads will he built next year. I trust that in the immediate future we shall be able more completely to commit the State to a reasonable meas ure of road construction and improve ment. One good sign is the growing demand for "home rule" by San Fran cisco and other large municipalities in connection with their Harbor Com missions. The State has rightfully furnished and spent enormous sums of money in ■ the construction and main tenance of wharves, seawalls, and other harbor improvements, for the promotion of commerce in the various harbors on our coast, but now that the harbors have been promoted and pro tected far beyond their respective in fancies, if the municipalities desire to take control- of them and furnish the sinews of their further construction and maintenance, let them do so. Un der the civil service rules of charters the commissions will be better, and the Stat^wjyjigJisQg^e-eendjthe^mpaej saved in some other direction, " possibly in road construction and maintenance. It will be a long time, however, be fore we can ever look to the State to aid us except in the more remote local ities. If the roads that are now to be built under the auspices of the State Highway Bureau shall be well built, possibly public opinion will approve a speedy extension of the system to dif ferent sections of the State. If, on the other hand, the State Highway Bureau should degenerate into a political asy lum for taking care of the "workers" and the "push, "or of those who '"walk down the line" with their votes on the United States SJenatorship. as has been the case at times with the Harbor Com missions, then public opinion would de mand a repeal of the whole legislation. Moreover, if the State should ever come to take up the subject of road construction under auy comprehensive plan, it could never do any more than aid on the main lines of thoroughfares, whereas what I understand to be wanted is a plan that 'will treat fairly all sections of the county in the pro motion of traveling facilities. If we are to have a road construction and betterment in Calaveras or Amador in the presentgeneration, the plan of re lief will have to be a county plan. We need not be discouraged by the enor mous amount of money that has been squandered in the last forty years without any appreciable result. The trouble has been that in both of these counties we have been attempt ing to maintain roads before we ever really constructed them. We have always been working from hand to mouth, doing patchwork, attempting to make a road maintenance fund do the double duty of partial construction and maintenance. The roads will have to be built — why not build them in this generation? Why leave all the good things to posterity? This is not the time to stop to point out where the grades of the old roads are correct, the old roads should be preserved rather than now ones con structed, nor the time to point out that where the old grades are not correct they cannot be too soon abandoned, nor the time to point out legal difficul ties in statutes that can bo easily amended according to our will, nor is it even the time to build roads. We are not yet that far. The first thing is to devise tho ways and means of get ting the necessary money. That is THE WHOLE QUESTION NOW. With the necessary money it is an easy matter to obtain the requisite engi neering skill and ability, the requisite machinery and the requisite ma terial to build roads. For one, Ido not see why tho future generation shoul not stand some part of the ex pense, or why this generation should not have some part of the benefit. The, association • has taken hold of this subject in the proper way. A pre liminary committee of five has been ap pointed to make tho necessary surveys, ascertain the different locations, and Bgure out the proper cost, where the road are needed, and to submit a spe . cific report to the organization, together with maps and estimates. I was pres ent at the first meeting of that com mittee and saw in five minutes $1000 subscribed to defray expenses of this preliminary work. Two . or three thousand dollars more will be needed and is being subscribed. With menlike McClure and Kemp Van Eo at the wheel, things move. The committeo should have sufficient money to make its work scientific and complete. Then it will be able to suhmit to the association a report that will not be in the air, nor a mere matter of guesswork, but a solid report, on which men will be ready to risk their business reputation as civil engineers and the details of which will be open to verification. Then the association will be able to act with deliberation upon information that will be reliable and exact, and having thereon formulated its pro gramme, will be able, with confidence, to go before the final arbiter — the peo ple. — John F.

WOOD CASE GOES TO MOKELUMNE HILL Al Manna the Victim of Austrian Hilarity— J.. Sullivan Drowned . in an Abandoned Shaft. EL DORADO COUNTY. Republican, Placerville, January 11th. One day last week— on Tuesday we believe — a heavy wind at tho Big Can yon mine demolished the biiiWin<r over the" chlorination works. It was not torn to pieces but pushed over. There were five men inside of it at the time, but the fallen building rested upon the furnace inside of it and thus prevented the men from being crushed, so that no one was hurt. Phileas Cote went down there a few days ago to repair the damage. The wind seems to have been quite violent on a line .north and south from Nashville, Big Canyon and Gold Hill, but farther east it was hard ly noticeable, evidently being confined to a narrow belt of country. The Amador Ledger and its younger rival, the Amador Republican, Bavo been at war in Jackson since the advent of the latter a few years ago. The evils of excessive competition have finally given away to a sensible consoli dation. The Republican sells out and is suspended and the Ledger contin ues. It is impossible to run a twelve horse team of newspapers (or anything else) continuously in a one-horse town. The admission of this fact is at tho bottom of consolidation, combination and trusts the world over. Democrat, Placerville, January 13tb. On Thursday of this week Governor Gage appointed Charles A. Swisler, Fred Irwin and Prentiss Carpenter to compose the Board of Election Com missioners for the City of Placerville. After tho appointees shall have quali fied and the commission organized, it will doubtless be but a short time be fore the issuance of a proclamation for a city election and the installation of a full-fledged city government. Mrs. Richardson of Mt. Auk um has so far recovered from her recent stroke of paralysis as to bo up and around tho house, and will soon be as well as ever. CALAVERAS COUNTY. Chronicle, Mokelumne Hill, January 13th. Norman Parrish, a pioneer business man of San Francisco, and senior part ner in the California Mills, died very suddenly in that city Tuesday last. Death is supposed to have been caused by apoplexy. Mr. Parrish leaves a wife and three children, Mrs. E. J. Root, Mrs. William T. Plunkett and Walter N. Parrish of this place. Citizen, San Andreas, January 13th. The charge of misdemeanor against E. E. Wood of Angels Camp, for wrecking the Citizen office on the 29th of December last, . was called in Judge Kean's court last Saturday and the de fendant arraigned. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and asked for a change of venue to some other court, preferring Angels Camp. The Court took the matter under advisement, and postponed the case until the sth inst. The matter was up again yesterday to hear argument on the motion, and Mr. Wood presented an affidavit set ting forth his reasons for wishing the case transferred. The District Attor ney opposed the change, but Judge Kean, who is ever fair in everything, granted the motion on the affidavit and set the case for trial beforo the Justice of Mokelnmne Township on Monday, the 22d of this month. Quite a quantity of large timbers are being hauled daily through town from the railroad terminus at Valley Spring' to the mines above. Prospect, San Andreas, January 13th. Thomas Pronton, who was employed to chop wood on the McGuirk ranch, west of town, for tho Commodore mine, met with a rather serious accident last Wednesday afternoon. He had felled a tt-eo and was limbing the samo, when his foot slipped and he fell forward up on the blade of his ax, cutting a gash across his left hand, its full width, just back of the knuckle joints, and sever ing a couple of the tendons of his two middle fingers. It is believed that he will lose the use of a couple of his fin gers. His wound is being attended to by Dr. Holland. The accident is to bo deplored, as Mr. Prenton had been out of employment for a considerable length pf time and this was his first day's work. J. P.. Camou, the O'Byrnes Ferry merchant, was at the county seat on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. He reports a great falling off of travel at the Ferry since the Sierra Railroad has been extended up into Tuolumne county. Formerly a large part of the traffic of Tuolumne went through by way of the Ferry, but now it goes by rail by way of Oakdale. Although the railroad has afforded an advantage in rapid transportation, the rates are very high and the sost for freight is heavier than it used to be when hauled by teams. On Friday night of last week a num ber of Austrians were celebrating their new year, which according to their calendar, was ushered in at 12 o'clock of that night, and were firing giant powder and otherwise observing the occasion with general jollification". ; Al Manna, who was on his way homo at a late hour, was passing near the sptft where the dynamite carnival was being held when a charge of the explosive that had been thrown, went off a short distance in front of him. A rock which was thrown up .by the, blast struck Mauna between the eyes, knocking htm down and making a deep cut in his forehead. He was immediately taken to his home and medical aid summoned. The wound, while a painful one, was not dangerous and he has about recov^ ered from the effects of it. Of course the parties who discharged the powder did not see the man coming in the darkness nor' did they expect anyone would be passing in that- secluded spot at that late hour. Last Tuesday an Austrian miner, whose name we did not learn, fell down a man'way in the Cross shaft at Angels Camp, sustaining a bad scalp wound besides numerous bruises. ',• He is under, treatment 'at the Utiea Hospital.- ■ - S. M. Callan, formerly a commercial traveler for the firm of.Lievre, Fricke & Co. of San Francisco, was arrested in this place on Friday of last week by Sheriff Thorn, in pursuance of a tele gram from the authorities at Sonora. Callan, it appears, induced Denny Guerin and C. M. Thomas of Sonora to indorse drafts drawn by himself on the firm for which he formerly worked. By this means he obtained $80 in cash and departed. Callan, it is claimed by thoso who know him, has always borne a good reputation for honesty and in tegrity, but ho has been drinking very heavily of late and his downfall is said to be due to this unfortunate failing. Constable Hammill came over Sunday and took his man back to Sonora. Echo, Angels Camp January Kith.

At 8 o'clock Monday evening, Jan uary Ist, John Sullivan left Algerine for his home, distant one-half mile. At the time there was a tempestuous storm of wind and rain and tho night was as black as the Imp of Satan is claimed to be. In traveling the trail he, it is sup posed, became bewildered, lost his course and fell into an old mining shaft. The hole contained twenty feet of water, and in it Sullivan met death. Next morning searchers hunted the hills and brush for the missing man. Nowhere could the disappearing man be found. The seeking for Sullivan was kept up through the week and on Saturday, at noon, the body was dis covered in tho shaft. The funeral ser vices were held Sunday and burial was in the. Odd Fellows' Cemetery. De ceased was forty-four years of age and a native of Ohio. Thursday afternoon, January 4th, Dr. Ellis extracted the bullet from the back of Ed Izenberg. . It was a. forty four caliber and had been planted there by some cowardly scoundrel on the night of December 31st.

The case of Ben and Thomas Soulsby against J. E. Conde for $4500 damages was in progress in the Superior Court this week. In June, 1898, the plaintiffs bonded the Northfork Consolidated, Donnella, Champion and Pleasant Hill mines, situated near Arastraville, to Conde for $20,000. The suit is for dam ages alleged to have been done to the property while it was in Conde's hands. Among the damages claimed is the fill ing up of a shaft.

THOUGHT NOW TO BE IN LASSEN COUNTY Indian Captains Want to Give Him v£ up, but Pear the Vengeance "kfl of His Relatives. A-. ■.. ■ - " -• /■SAt daybreak last Monday morning a crowd of men from Carson valley and Atpine county surrouuded the Indian camps at Woodfords, Markleevillo and tip .Diamond Sawmill. A thorough &.<ai<ch was made in air the camps for Joe Pete, the Indian who killed Will Dangberg on the 7th of last September, but tho Indian had been warned of the coming of the searching party and the search was unsuccessful. . After the men had examined every roll of blankets in each of the camps and were convinced that Joe Pete had skipped, an interview was had with Captain Pete Mayo, and ho was finally persuaded to come to Gardnerville and meet tho other Captains of the Washoe tribe. The four Captains held a meet ing and consultation here Tuesday with a number of prominent citizens of Carson valley. The Captains entered into an agree ment with the whites to capture Joe Pete within three weeks. They say they do not know where he is at pres ent; he may be in Washoe county, or in Long valley, Lassen county, Cal., but tbey promise to find him and give him up to some white man in Alpine county. ; This white man, Captain Mayo says, will probably be an ac quaintance of Joe Pete, and will be selected by Pete to take him to Genoa or Carson. The citizens present at the meeting agreed that Joe Pete should have a fair and impartial trial and that good lawyers would be employed to defend him. The Captains appear to be very much •in favor of bringing Joe Pete to justice and say they will put forth every effort to catch him within three weeks. They seem confident that they will get him. Captain Pete Mayo is Joe Pete's uncle. He says that he wants Joe Pete to give himself up and wants him pro tected under the white man's law. The Captain and Joe Pete are not on friend ly terms, having had some trouble at Blue lakes last summer. Tho Captain says he has not seen Pete since the murder, but sent word to him twice to give himself up. The white people have broken into Captain Mayo's camp twice while look ing for Joe Pete, and the Captain does not like it. He says the trouble will last for twenty years if Joe Pete is not caught, and that the Indians will find him now and have him give himself up. Joe Pete has a large number of rela tives and the Captains do not like to hunt him down for fear they will get into serious trouble themselves. But they are confident the best thing Pete can do is to give himself up, and say they can persuade him to do so as soon as they have a chance to talk with him. Although a few are skeptical, many white peoplo believe the Captains can control Pete and that they will cause his arrest within the time limit. The search for Pete is causing the Indians a great deal of trouble, and Pete is a fugitive in the mountains in constant fear of being taken. ,The leading In dians seem to understand now that the best thing Pete can do is to stand trial for his crime and believe Pete will be of the same opinion when he is consulted and told that he will be given a fair trial.— Gardnerville Courier.

What Came to a Husband From Celebrat- ing a Wedding Aniversary. A good many years ago a certain Atchison girl landed a certain Atchison man. He was industrious, held on to bis job, and showed evidence of mount ing higher. She noticed this and de cided he was a good catch. He did not want to marry, but she worried him until he stood at the altar with her. From that time his ambition ceased. Oa.ce every year he celebrated his wedding aniversary by going on a big drunk which lasted . longer each time. He lost his job, of course, and it was not long until he had a big family. The celebration of his wedding anni versary finally became one continuous drunk, and his wife had to support him and the family. The boys are now al most young men, and occupying re sponsible positions. There -is a good deal of gossip abont their mother, be cause it is said she never permits one of her sons to go with a girl more than three times. A good many peo ple make fun of the old lady, but she says she knows her business, and pro poses .to attend to it. It is claimed that she has made out a small list of girls in Atchison whom her sons can marcy, and has, warned them against all others. She has put them onto many of the tricks by which girls land young men, and is constantly coaching them. People are always saying that mothers should talk plainly to girls, but this woman claims they do not need talking to half as badly as the young men. — Atchison Globe. Experience is tbe best Teacher.
