GEOLOGY OF RIVER CHANNELS The Great River Channel of California! THE FAMOUS DEPOSITS OF WEALTH IN THEM This Great Gravel Bed, the Channels and Drifts Bun North and South. J. A. FAULL Mr. Editor :— I will, with your per- mission, occupy a little space in"your valuable paper. In the present instance I might quote the ancient aphorism: "Pools ruah in where angels fear to tread. " This effort is being made with a full knowledge of what •it portends, but not until after having spent up wards of forty years in making investi gations and traveling the length and breadth of the continent more than once, and not this continent alone, have I come to a positive opinion and am prepared to deal with facts. To the unprejudiced mind these facts may appeal. It cannot do any harm if it does not do any good. It may stimu late investigation from a new stand point. I will begin with this assertion — that what is and has been known as the Great River Channel of California, and which has yielded millions of dol lars of gold, is not a .river in the sense in which we have been led to believe. When these channels are spoken of they have been called eocene, miocene and pliocene. Using, the language of Professor Lyle, that great thinker and investigator, who has copied the Greek term to convey to the mind the significance of - his language — "tfce dawn, the recent, less recent and the more recent. " These terms are made use of in order to impress upon the mind the geologist's idea of time or ' epoch or period in the world's history. Some students think that this river system consisted of river channels in the ancient sea before the uplift of our continent. Others have claimed with equal force that these great gold-bear ing channels were rivers coursing north and south after the main chain ap peared above the ancient sea ; holding, of course, that : gold was formed from some p^e-existing rocks. We now come to the question— from whence came these channels and what are they, and how came they in the position in which we now find. them? To gain an intelligent answer we must look at things as they are. In the first instance, we find this great gravel bed and the channels and drifts run ~ ning along the edge of the. main moun tain chain in ajiortherly and southerly direction with what appears to be nu merous arms running almost due east and west, being crossed by the present river system in its course from 'the snow-clad mountains to the «ea. If we look at the channel's course and then at the trend of the present rivers we find that they cross at almost right angles, cutting through and car rying away great areas of gravel, which is found deposited .in various form 9 along their course, such as-bars, benches, small channels, ravines and wide areas of deposit upon an uneven bedrock. The ravines form a fill from the force of the surrounding waters. I will instance for my present purpose the Clear Creek district in Shasta .county between Lassen's Butte on the one hand and the Trinity Range on the other. The great gravel channel of the east has been broken and swept away from its north and south course at this point. If we examine this sec tion we find French Gulch a very rich deposit of loose gravel, Clear Creek, South Fork, Mule Creek, Horse Town, Red Hill, Igo, Hardscrabble, Eagle Creek, Lower Cottonwood, Begum, Dry Creek and Hay Fork of the Trin ity, extending to the herein mentioned points and covering 220,000 aci-es of land, at some points looking like river channels, again showing as it were es carpments,' at other times ■ covering vast areas of uneven, but gentle, slop ing bedrock, the bedrock slate, gran ite, sandstone and oftentimes clay, where the bedrock is slate the gravel is blue ; hence called the blue lead. Where the bedrock .is granite the gravel shows a redish color. This is caused, doubtless, by the iron in the decomposed mica. Some of the ra vines have been rich, others very poor; the whole district being known to miners as very spotted and uneven. This is one point. Now let us turn our attention to the channel where it has ■ not been swept away from the higher Sierra. We will take Sierra county as an initial point whore the drift min ing has been carried on in the blue gravel channel, and here let me note that it was the deposit and drift mines of this county, such as those at Forest ' City. Wet Ravine, ' Rabbit Creek and Port Wine, and other points that might be mentioned, that the name Blue Lead got its cognomen. The North, South and Middle Yubas were formed by glacial rivers carrying their gravel deposits along their line, de positing their wealth at Moore's Flat, Chipps' Flat and other | points along the line of its waters, which can be seen by examination. The sloping nature of the. land from the mountains to the sea averages about 7J degrees. All this we must take into account in the study of this subject. You ask me the question: Whence came the lava which is found on the top of these gravel beds, gener ally known as channels? My answer Is, look carefully where the mountains to The Amador Ledger. the east are granite,', the lava is whit ish, gritty and sand-like in nature, so soft that it i can be cut with a knife. At other times it can be : formed into blocks by • hand, usually where the mountains have been diked, as they often have been. The overburden or cap ib conglomer ate cement, pudding stone, and in fact, almost every kind' of mixture,, all of which may be accounted for by a care ful study of the mountain chain. I will here instance the great arm be tween the South -Yuba and Bear creek in Nevada county. On the Dcci creek side of this rid^e the "covering is con glomerate, under which is a layer of pipe clay. At times thi3 is crystal lized; at other times,' soft and ten acious, 'as tenacious as putty,: under. which are found seams of white gravel, streaks of red and blue, all of which are washed uneven in form and look- ing very much like the sand .found on the ocean j beach. . ,Tho gold found . in these lines is very fine; sometimes scarceley and often adhering to the soft granite bedrock. At a ' mound called Sugar Loaf the waters of the glacier itself appear to have split and broken away f ram its east and west course, making rich deposits in Deer creek, Wood's Ravine, American Hill, (Jregon Hill and Wet Hill on the one hand, and Shelby Flat, Rush creek and Cement Hill on the other. Now !we will turn to the great arms of the Yubas, where in its east and west course it is traceable for thirty-eight miles up to the main north and south channel. Again you ask the question as before. Is it the result of a glacial moraine? ■■.'.. We will now turn/ our attention to the arm in Placer county at the foot of the ridge near Rock'.ln in the Sacra mento Valley extending up to the Blue Canon, the edge of the mountain -elope which we find between the Bear river and the north branch of the American river. Along this line there are many claims, many so called channels of greater or less width. I make use of the local terms in order that your readers may understand the position I take in this article. . Many of the ravines drop into tho American on the one hand and into the Bear river on the other. .

Soloman, -on the other hand,- had no less than 4000 stables, 40,000 stalls and 12,000 horse men, which are understood to have been coachmen for his populous harem. There are, perhaps, a few ranches in the northwest of Mexico whose own ers come near riveling Solomon in the number of their horses, but the money value of these Mexican mustangs would not exceed i $10 to $15 per head, while "we are informed that Solomon paid 160 shekels ($93) for a horse, which would indicate that his steeds were of a su perior class and probably of the kind that aroused the admiration of Habba kuk, — "swifter than leopards" which "fly as the eagle hasteth to eat."

Jarboe Falls Down a Shaft One Hundred and Thirty-five v Feet and Is Killed. CALAVERAS COUNTY- Prospect, San Andreas, January 27th. . Last ', Tuesday j evening a shepherd dog- belonging to J. C. Marshall of this place fell into an abandoned shaft about thirty, feet deep, at Yacquie Camp. There was considerable water in the hole, but ■ fortunately for the animal there was a small drift at or near the water level, into which the dog climbed and thus saved himself from drowning. The next morning, with the necessary assistance,' August Winkler was low ered into the shaft and the dog was secured and hoisted to the surface. It had sustained no injury by the fall. . ' . There was quite a crowd at the race track last Wednesday, the occasion be ing a horse race between an animal backed by Bret Morgan and one en tered by Frank "Gourney. Morgan's horse won the race in 44} seconds. The distance was three-fourths of a mile. Ed Taylor rode Morgan's animal and Colombo Gqzzollp Gourney 's. Con siderable money changed.hands on the outcome.

Vie Raggio of Murphys, a brother of John Raggio of this town, was regis tered at the Metropolitan Hotel on Monday with his bride, en route to San Francisco, on his bridal tour. Mrs. Raggio was a Miss Malaspina, of a family well known throughout ° the county. ■A nine-year-old, boy named Almond Way, who had been running wild about Jeniiy Lind for some time and "whose father lives in Stockton, some time ago made a deadly assault on a son of J. P. Alter, by stabbing him in the back with a knife. The wound was a serious one, but young Alter has fully recov ered from it. District Attorney Mc- Sorley went to Jenny Lind to try the boy for his offense, but on account of the lad's age, the father, on promising to care for the boy, was allowed to take him out of the county. He left for Stockton with his son that night. John R.

Variations of the Compass Explained—Re taining Walls. It may be of interest to many read ers of this paper to know what is meant by "magnetic variations," which oc cur in all surveyors' field notes of .sur veys, and, consequently, may be used In the very deed that gives title to your home or mine or other property. The expression means tnat the mag netic needle varies east or west from the true north and south line or meri dian. • The reason for this variation is that the" magnetic ■ pole and axial pole of the earth do not coincide. It is possible to get into such a place that the two poles will be in the same line. A meridian circle passing through such place* and the magnetic and axial poles is called the "Line of no Varia tion." This line passes across the United States from the region of Lake Superior to the coast of South Car olina. It will be readily seen, there fore, that an observer with the mag netic compass must make allowance for this variation when making surveys on either side of this line. In California, the magnetic needle pointing to the north magnetic pole, I varies about 17 degrees to the east off the true meri dian passing through the pole ; hence, surveyors say magnetic variation 17 degrees (or thereabout) east; while a surveyor in Maine would say magnetic variation Bor 10 degrees west. There are other local variations at certain times and places, due to the presence of iron ore or traprock,- and at times to certain electrical conditions. RETAINING WALLS. A few words in regard to the science of building walls for the retaining of earth or rock ■to be deposited against them may not be amiss, inasmuch as one need only walk along some of the streets of Jackson, or almost any one of these mountain towns, and observethe bulging faces of such walls to know that they were improperly built, or at least not scientifically built. Such walls should be made with the same skill as is' used by engineers in building abutments for roads, railroads and the like. Without going into details we might state this as a general rule, modified somewhat by the character of material used for "backing." "The' base should be made from 30% to 50% of the height of the wall." This may be made less where the wall is backed against rock in place or undisturbed earth not mingled with beds of clay. The observance of this rule in the building of front walls along the upper sides of streets on hillside lots would result in more permanent and more beautiful walls than many that are seen every day.

BUSH GREEttD WITH FIVE FELONY CHARGES Foot-prints Leading Into and Out of the Tunnel Aroused the Sus picion of the Officers. ••■■ The thief who has been breaking into and rifling cabins, butche.r shops and other places about San Audreas wa B caught on Wednesday morning and a -wagon-load of stolen goods was re covered. The thrifty burglar* proved" to be Joe Bush, who is not a stranger to ' the county jail. He was sent up from Hodson last summer, sentenced to sixty days' imprisonment for petty larceny. On October 31st last he was discharged from the jail here and that night he broke into Chris Anderson's cabin, out near the race track, and took therefrom three blankets, two pillows, a shovel, some clothing, a Bible, giant powder, fuse and caps. He then took up his residence in the tunnel of Anderson's gravel mine near by. He found a "side-drift suitable for his purpose . about fifty feet back from the mouth of the tunnel and here he rigged up a bed for himself and es tablished a very comfortable lair. Here he spent the day and with night fall he set forth on his predatory ex peditions. In this way he lived on "the fat of theland." He would : probably have continued in his career of crime all winter had not John Siffard observed tracks lead ing into and out of the tunnel and sub sequently asked George Stewart if he had some one working in the mine, saying some one was doing so or mak ing his home therein. This report caused Mr. Sifiard and Constable Oneto to go out to. the mine and to ex plore it. They soon found Bush's lair and subsequently his capture was ef fected by Joseph C. Marshall, who de livered him to the sheriff. Sheriff Thorn soon secured a con fession from Bush, in which he freely acknowledged a long list of crime, of which others had been suspected. Be sides the Chris Anderson-robbery, he confessed the robbery at the Wood side cabin, on the Angels road, about . one and a ' . half miles be low the Schannon place. Here he took a suit of clothes, a looking glass, some Hour, a watch, baking powder, bacon, a razor, strap and brush, po tatoes, onions, raisins and prunes. The razor he sold at Fourth Crossing. On Januarj 18th he' entered 'the slaughter house of Waiter & Nuland, • on the Mokelumne Hill road, where he took two skinning knives, two beef tongues and two beef hearts. On Sat urday evening, January 20th, he broke a lock on the door of the cabin of George Gay, near the slaughter house, and stole some jelly and pears in glass jars, onions, potatoes, beans and to bacco. . A few nights before that he robbed a 'peddler's wagon at Sehan non's place of about seven dozen of eggs and a sack of vegetables^ and some of both were found in his tunnel home when he was arrested. Some time last month he also en tered- the hoisting .works of the Fort Wayne Gold Production Company and stole a lamp and chimney and a large can of oil.
