Cisco, the stage from Jackson to Mar tell leaves one half hour earlier than formerly. It leaves at twenty minutes to eight every morning, instead of ten minutes past eight. This change is necessary in order to make connection with the west bound train at Gait. There is no change in the arrival of the stage in the evening. Bazaar a Success The bazaar given in the Odd Fellows hall by the Ladies Guild of St. Augus tine's Episcopal church of Jackson, on Thursday evening last, was well patronized and entirely satisfactory to those who carried out the affair. Handnerchiefs, fancy and useful ar ticles were sold, as well as candy and delicatessens. Refreshments, sand wiches, cake, coffee, tea and choco late were disposed of by the ladies in charge at a rate that indicated both hunger and satisfaction on the part of the patrons.The proceeds of the bazaar will go towards helping defray the expense of painting the church, and making other neces'ary repairs to the structure. Ladies Aid Society The Ladies Aid Society of the M. E. church, will have the usual confec tionery, cakes, pies, etc., for. sale at the office of George VV. Brown, on Main street, on Saturday afternoon. : BURIED ALIVE IN SOUTH EUREKA A Miner Loses his Life in A Singular Manner. Early Sunday morning a miner, whose name is given as Luigi Crovara met his death in a peculiar manner while working in the South Eureka mine. He was employed in taking waste rock from a chute running from the 2200 to the 2300 level for filling up abandoned drifts. As is often the case, the mouth of the chute became choked, so that material - .refused to flow through the opening. At intevals along the sides of the chute openings are left for such an emergency, and by climbing up the manway and .pry ing with a crowbar at the place of ob struction the difficulty is overcome. On this occasion, however, the miner got into the chute, with his crowbar, and commenced prying the rock loose. This was a most dangerous course, and it seems strange that any employe would voluntarily assume such a risk. As soon as the rock was loosened, the pressure from above was such that it came down with a rush, before the victim had a chance to get out of the way. He was completely buried under the debris of slush and rock, and liter aHy buried alive. A fellow workmen near by noticed that Crovaro was missing, and sus pected that something was wrong. Assistance was had, and a number were put to work in the chute to res cue the victim from his sudden ? tomb. His lifeless body was soon found with the crowbar close by. The body was badly mangled by the weight of the falling debris. The remains were taken to the surface and afterwards removed to undertaking parlors at Sutter Creek. Deceased was a young man about 24 years of age, and a native of Italy. He had been . working _in the South Eureka 'about ;three. "months;: .and be fore that was employed for a while at the Fremont mine. ■■■ He was a single man. Coroner Potter held an inquest- over the remains on Sunday afternoon, the jury' rendering a verdict of accidental death." The funeral services were held Monday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Catholic cemetery of Sutter Creek. '■■.•» Perano-Dufrene Nuptials t . , .■• •'■A pretty hortie' wedding was solem nized at the home of Mr and Mrs Wm. D. Dufrene, No 42 'Main street, on Wednesday at high > noon, at which Rev. J. O. Duncan of the Methodist church officiated. • The contracting parties were Miss Winnie Dufrene, and Julius M. Perano, both well-known and highly respected citizens of Jackson. The bride was attended by Miss Eva Perano, sister of the groom, and Joseph Raggio acted as best man. The bride wore a white messaline silk ribbons and lace dress with kid ties to match. She wore a wreath of orange blossoms in her hair, and car ried a boquet of white carnations. The bridesmaid was handsomely gowned in a dress of blue missaline silk. The parlor was decorated so as to form a huge wedding 'bell of white, tastefully blended with maiden hair, ferns, and white carnations, i ■ The dining room was decorated -in blue with pink and white geraniums. The happy couple were the recipients of many costly and. beautiful presents. After the ceremony had concluded, the many friends who had been invited to attend the wedding were escorted to the dining room, where a sumptuous dinner awaited them. The wedding cake was a marvel of beauty, and was distributed to friends and acquaint ances all over the county. A home elaborately furnished, ad joining property of the father of the bride, will be occupied by the newly weds as their permanent residence, Mr and Mrs Perano left on Wednesday afternoon for a honeymoon trip, which will include a visit to many of the coast cities.

MURDER CASE IS BEING TRIED Drytbwn Crime Is Heard In Superior Court The murder case of Giacomo Sampo, was opened in tho superior court room on Monday morning. , The firm of Spagnoli & Spagnoli re presented the defendant. The prisoner is charged with the murder of Stefano Fistori, which occured on the night of November 26th in Drytown. The prisoner sat beside his young wife, in the dock, the latter with a baby girl, not a year old. He appeared indifferent to any of the questions asked by the attorneys, who were try ing to select the jury. . Sampo seemed the most unconcerned man in the courtroom, when the dis trict attorney asked each juryman if he had any scruples as to the infliction of the penalty of death. At six o'clock on Monday evening, only two jurors had taken the oath in the panel box. and Judge Woods, after admonishing his jurymen as to their conduct, while at recess, ordered that they appear again at 7 o'clock. The defendant's counsel, Ernest Spagnoli informed the court that if a continu ous night session was to be held throughout the trial, he desired to enter an objection. The judge thereupon stated that it does not make any difference whether you object or not. This county is under a heavy expense in holding all these jurymen here, and shall order a night j session until the selection of the jury is completed. Yesterday morning, with eleven jurors sworn, and the twelfth passed by attorneys on both sides, a request was made by the defense to allow an extra preemptory challenge to be ex ercised on any one of the already sworn jurymen. It was requested that the court' exclude' all jurymen for a period of five minutes to allow defense to^BraienV certain.' facts which they did not wish the jurymen to hear, as it might harm' defendant's cause. ; A recess was declared and the court - in formed the attorneys for the. defense that if anything had come to their knowledge , that was detrimental to their client, concerning any ' individual jurymen,' he would hear the .complaint privately. The defense exercised the extra challenge and removed Wm. Green, who was the last to be ex amined. James Mushett was . then selected, and* completed the panel. The jury of twelve impartial men was completed Thursday noon. .After: examining 70 talesmen— tfifty. on the regular venire and two special venires of ten each. A number , of .those ex amined were unable to qualify on ac count of having conscien ious scruples against the death penalty. Following is the list of men selected to try the case : J. VV. Joses, Virgil Norton, Edward Shealor, R. 0. McKean. Thos. J. Burrows jr., Eric Schmidt, J. H. Griffin. W. H. Taylor, J. L. Cox, L. A. White, H. C. Hamrick, James Mushett. Thursday afternoon the taking of testimony was commenced. Miss Eva Cavallero, a prepossing and remark ably bright and intelligent girl of 15 summers, testified; I live in Dry town with my parents, who keep a boarding house, I am acquainted with defend ants, also acquainted with the de ceased, Stefano Pistoni. Saw de fendant, •' Giacomo Sampo and his brother George at the boarding house that evening, also the co defendant Stefano Conti. They were not board ers, but took supper there that even ing. Deceased Pistoni was a boarder and ate supper at the same time. I went for the mail and returnei about eight, returning in about twenty minutes. The parties were there in the kitchen when I got back; they were chatting among themselves about their work. Atter a while they started dancing, with an accordeon as music. I danced with the two Sampos, with Conti and Pistoni. The trouble commenced while dancing with Pis toni. George Sampo came and called bad names, and struck at Pistoni. Deceased said he did not want to fight, and quit dancing and went out by the bacK door. . George Sampo and Conti went out by the Iront door five or ten minutes afterwards; defendant stayed in the house. About half an - hour George returned, and said, "Come on brother, we might as well kill him now, we are not ecared." Saw l'is toni in bed afterward about 12 o'clock. He seemed to be asleep. Knew of his Continued on Page 6 MINE NEWS ALONG LODE Interesting Accounts of Mines Located In Amador Co. Plymouth District Mining around Plymouth continues to look bright for. another peiiod of prosperity for this once famous m'ning town. The Alpine Company is pushing ahead with the development of that property. Some drawbacks have been experienced with the electric machi nery, causing tne transformer to break down two or three times. An other and more powerful machine has been installed, which was expected to be in running order early this week. The company is supplied with power from the American River company. There are persistent rumors that the old Plymouth Consolidated mines are to be reopened. Mr Lane, who is in terested in this property, has been in Plymouth recently, looking into the proposition. The residence of the superintendent, which has been out of commission for many years, has been repaired and put in condition for oc cupation, and other improvements have been made, which points to the resumption of mining in the near future. The mine was abandoned some twenty-five years ago. It was worked to a depth of about 1500 feet, which in those days was considered deep mining, and the impression was general that the gold bearing ores were not likely to continue much be low that depth. After the fire which raged in underground works for weeks, and caused the shafts to be closed air tight to extinguish the flames, the mine was reopened, and considerable prospecting was done. But the pro perty never got on a paying basis, and after a few months of fruitless pros pecting the mine was closed down for good by the then management .All sorts of reports have' gained currency as .to the cause of the shut-down— that good ore existed in the lower levels at the time, and so forth. At one time the eighty stamp' mill of this mine was yielding at the rate of from" $75, 000 to $100,000 per month. While it is unreasonable to think that pay' ore was left in the levels in any quantity at the time of the closure, there is every reason to believe from the his tory of deep mining in Amador county since the Plymouth Consolidated ceased operations that this mine will respond in gold production to further judicious development work ' 1 'Amador Llmerock Company • 'From eight to ten men have been employed for several months in open ing up the big lime deposit of this company at Mount Echo. They have exposed^ a face of over 100 feet of backs and several hundred feet in width. It has been developed to a point to demonstrate that this is one of the heaviest deposits of limestone in California. What is more remark able is that the rock is very uniform in quality, and unusually free from deleterious matter. It is estimated that there are over one million tons in the deposit from present indications. It is expected that steps will be taken by the company shortly looking to the marketing of the material. Transpor tation facilities to the Amador branch railroad have to be provided, and this will invove eitner the construction of a railroad from a point on the Amador branch a mile or two below lone to the quarry, a distance of four or five miles, or an aerial tramway to the railroad depot. South Eureka. Fixing the shaft is proceeding at a satisfactory gait. It is thought that this work will be completed sufficient ly to enable the mill to be started, if not the first of the year, at least by the middle of next month. It will be one of the best equipped mines in the state when again in operation and the vast store of pay-rock blocked out insures dividends for many years to come. The stock has held up well dur ing the idleness of the mill for the past three or four months. It is held at $6.50 per share. The company has continued the three cents per month dividends during the shaft repairing out of the surplus. Bunker Hill The clean-up tor the month of No vember showed a slight falling off as compared with the previous month, the yield of gold amounting to some thing over 116.000. The falling off is owing to the large quantity of low grade ore that was sent to the mill You can get your HiHl&^N. Letter Heads, etc., prinM'-u/ the Ledger for less than ymi can buy blank stock for els? 1 mnv TT J It r I J , Fivo Cents Per Copy. from the 1950 level, and that had to be got out of the way, the easiest and most economical way to dispose of it being to send it to the mill. The re duced yield for the month does not mean any decline in the average grade of rock, llie 1950 level is opening up fine. In places the ore body is 60 to 80 feet wide, portion of it of course low ' grade, but the bulk of it good milling quality. The addition to the mill of twenty stamps is making satisfactory headway, and it is expected to have forty stamps running inside of two months. First Clean Up Jos. Phclps and T. J. Burrows have : been operating a small quartz claim on the ground of the Oncida company. They have secured > a lease of the ! ground, and have discovered a rich ore streak, which is said to assay in the neighborhood of $30 per ton. A one stamp mill has been working on the ore, with what result we are unable to state. Some difficulty has been ex perienced in saving the gold, For some reason the gold does not famal gamate freely, involving considerable loss of the precious metal. This trouble will probably be overcome. The owners are hopeful of reaping a , substantial profit out of this enter prise.

Arrangements have been made with the local doctors to take care of his patients during his absence, which will be about two weeks. Returned to Amador Co. After being absent from Amador county for the period of over two years, S. E. Robbins has returned to his former place of employment at the Fremont mine, as assistant superin tendent of that company. Mr Robbins has followed mining for the greater part of hia life, at various mining districts throughout this country and many foreign countries. His last position was with a New York company, engaged in gold mining at Costa Rico, Central America. The mine under his control was one of the largest in that country, named the Agnacata. Mr Robbins cays that he is very much surprised at the rate which the mining industry has flourished along the mother lode in Amador county in the past few years.
