Xot only is it requisite that the sup
ply of water should be uniform, but it
must also be adequate to the needs of
the jig: and, as the jig plunger in ha
upward stroke necessarily creates con
siderable vacuum below it, the water
supply must be placed at sufficient
height to enable it to llow rapidly into
the jig. If the supply of water is not
placed, at least, ten feet above the jig j
overflow, the effect on the jig will be
that some of the lighter and worthless
rock will be sucked down to aud
through the screcu, thus causing the
lower discharges to be dirty, and prob
ably require them to be redressed.
As a matter of fact, the jig plunger
does not displace at each stroke as
many cubic inches of water as would
be represented by its area multiplied
by the length of its stroke, and it is
uot necessary to provide water enough
for this. Iu reality, there is more or
less air always mixed with the water
directly under the pluuger. and when
it is remembered that air is very elas
tic, and capable of being compressed,
it will readily be seen that only part
of the space vacat ed by the plunger
need be tilled with water, the rest of
the space being compensated for by
the expansion of that air which was
compressed oa the down stroke ; in
practice this will be apparent to any
thinking person, but it is more notice
able in those machines which are treat
ing the coarser sizes. For instance,
take that jig which is working on 1-2
inch ore; in that jig, the stroke of the
p'.unger would be about 1 1-2 inches,
and about 100 strokes per minute, the
plunger working under these condi
tions would displace nearly 800 gal
lons ot water every minute; whilst the
! size of pipe, with ten feet head, need
ed to supply the jig, would uot require
to be more than two inches. As there
must be one hundred full strokes per er oforC! bc;n;r once established as be
tninute, it caa readily be seen that all rigt, it can be shown that the

presence of air in the water serves as

machinery. Were there uj t-Hstie !

the eccentric. I do not wish it to be
understood that I claim for it less
friction than lor the other devices
! named. The fact is, the eccentric
wears faster and requires more power,
but it has advantages which appeal to
the pockets of all mill men; it costs
less to replace, it requires little atten-
j tion beyond that bestowed with an oil
cau ; and, thanks to the elastic prop-
! openiuj is fitted a vjilve t pro-
of the jig, and is intended to discharge
all ore or gaml which comes through I
the 8;rceu. It might be supposed I
that, with a perfect series of revolving !
screens, there would be nothing receiv- j
ed on the coarse jigs which would go
through their scromis, but it is next to j
the impossible to prevent some of the j
liner sauui iro:n ciiugmg to autt join
ing with the larger roek, and these
line particles have to be provided for
another source from which the line
particles come, is to bs found in the
abrasion of the coarse rock in its pas-
sage to the jig. ami in the action it is
subjected to when it gets there. As
the rock is continuously fed to tho
jig. and it has been sh own that only a
very small percentage goes through
the screen, it is plain that the great
est amount, must reuriin lodged on
the screen. A jig, to be kept in per
fect working condition, besides hav
ing a steady supply of water and ore,
and having its moving parts in good
order, mi?t also 1)3 provided with
means whereby the ore as it accumu
lates oa the screeu caa be automatic
ally removed. Th 3 reason why it is
necessary to the good work of a jig to
be able to automatically discharge th
ore which lodges oa the screeu, is
this: having found by experiment
just what water, stroke, and speed is
required to make a good concentrate,
the next thing to be done is to main
tain the working of the jig in precise
ly the sams condition it wa3 found
best. It is an easy matter to keep the
stroke, speed, aud supply of water at
a regular gait, but the ore is a variable
quantity and m;i3t be closely watched.
It has already been shown that the
tendency of a mixed body of ore and
rock particles of the same size, when
exposed to the action of an upward
intermittent stream of water, was to
arrange itself in laj crs according to
gravity; the ore to bo saved by con
centration is almost invariably the
heaviest, and consequently becomes
that layer which is nearest to the
screen. Water, stroke, speed, aud iay-
have too much action on the light and
small particles, and they will pass to
the screen and through it, making a
dirty product below; on the other
hand, should the layer of ore become
too deep, the action of the water on
tnc ore particles will be retarded and j
,.,,. r0od ore will diss u and over I
the ovcrfl,w to the next screen, orj
cis0 wiu , i0rft in the tailings. i

Another Complaint.
Editor Clarion: I like the bold
stand you and your correspondents
arc taking for the people ; but you do
not suggest any remedy. I have ob
served that changes only come after
the people have loudly demanded
them. The last grand jury told the
taxpayers that they were being rob
bed, but no particular heed will be
given to their words until the people
eencrallv have swelled the chorus of
complaints until it actually forces a
hearing. Will not some one give us
more facts about that printing? Is
that man in San Jose right about it ?
Cannot The Clarion get hold of that
bill of Solomon's and publish the
items. All this distrust is wrecking
khc county, and will cause it to drift
like an overlotded and water-logged
ship hopeless in the financial sea. We
cannot stand anv increased ratio of
taxation. The farmers have been as
sessed to even a cord of wood lying
in the door yard. Let us see that
others are assessed in proportion.
Uruin will be very low, and the gov
ernment freighting contract at the
figures taken will not afford a living.
If the teamsters would band together
it would learn somebody a lesson.
You may think this strong talk, but
you will find that it will have to come
to that at last.
The Bulletin is iixmg for some
political move. It squarely declares
that everything in this bankrupt
county is lovely, and that the goose
hangs exceedingly high, and all that
is needed is to let present conditions
severely alone, or make them a little
more so, if possible. 'Might is right"
in this county in practice, if not in
theory. I hope to hear other expres
sions of opinion, so we may have a
little more light on the matter ; for if
our prosperity, happiness and larger
opportunity is to be filched away,
through a tax on the produce of toil
that is not founded on justice, though
it may have the warrant of partial and
iniquitous law, it is time the farmers
of this Valley rise as one man and
right this wrong.
