/loom / that mirnrlsed tlio "oldest Inhabi
tants. " Since tlio divides bccamo passable
miner * and prospectore liavo been coming
by tlio score nnd tlio woods arc full of tlicrn ,
says ft Olieycnne leader .correspondent.
A cll.ilrlct Imx been formed with United
States Conimlaalonor I'ettlgrew recorder , nnd
many claims have been and are being taken
dally. So far but two machines have been
brought In , nnd ono of those la n small
prospector can led In on a jack from Arl-
zonla , but It eaves the dust In Mnu shape ,
and Is being used to test the griiund In
vnrloua localities. The other Is of lllackfoot
( Idaho ) make , of good capacity , nnd has been
at work on Conant creek , where they clnlm
to bo taking nn ounce per d.iy to the man ,
nnywny the parties are having a machine
7)tillt with n capacity of handling 1,000 yards
of gravel per day , which they will use In the
same ground ; so I presume they arc at least
obtaining good pay.
There are old miners here from every
where , anil nil unite In predicting this coun
try becoming n great placer mining region.
So far as tested the country yields from CO
cents to $2 nnd $3 per yard , and the cntlra
surface of the earth , regardless of material ,
Hceins to yield pay.
William Quinii , an old Illack Hills miner ,
says that from the wide distribution of gold
bo oxpcctcd to sc3 hundreds of machines at
work In Jackson's Hole within another year.
Harncy Utilities , the original discoverer of
Alder Oulch , In Montana , Is here. Ho Is old ,
but still hule and sound , and expects to
strike It again.
Several of our own residents have ordered
machines for placer work , many of whom
have claims that show from C > UO to 2,000
colors to the pan. Llko all mining regions ,
we have our rich lost diggings , \whlch many
como to look for , guided by certain land
marks which the discoverer told about "Just
before going away and dying. "
The herd of buffalo has arrived , which
makes our collection of animals fairly com
plete , so that now one can see In "the Hole"
about anything. Last year Mr. L-'ok caught
a pair of bear cubs , nnd In the fall one of
them escaped. It wns seen ngaln the other
day nnd treed by n couple of boys , but when ,
ono of them followed him up the tree he
showed fight , and the boys allowed him to
still go with the chain attached. The way
Lock nnd his partner caught the cubs did
not trouble them much , either. They were
driving along several miles from home with
out a gun , when they discovered the old one
and cubs. They Immediately gave chase
and soon treed the cubs , and ono of them
stood under the tree with a club nnd kept
the cubs up and the mother away , while
the other went away and returned with a
After considerable delay work has been
resumed on the now gold fields of Sallna
canyon. The lied Greek Mining company ,
with headquarters at Mantl , has a man
working In the black sand. The shipment
of panning ; ) from one and one-quarter tons
did not bring very satisfactory returns ,
says a Monti special to the Salt Lake Tri
bune. Assays showed that the sand carried
gold , but not In paying quantities. Ono pe
culiarity about the formation Is that the
gold Is covered by a sort of asphalt , or
black wax. This coating must bo removed
by some ) acid process before the gold can be
The first assay gave $74.24 per ton and
was mailo from a shot sack full of sand
taken from different places now claimed by
the Ilod Creek company. Tannings of 2,500
pounds of sand taken from ono place gave
less than $5 per torn Both of these sam
ples were taken from the grabs roots. It Is
now the Intention of the company to find
bed-rock nt different points and discover. If
possible , where the first samples came from.
The sand will Imvo to bo hauled down hill
for a few hundred yards to bo treated by
the cyanide or some other process , whore
water Is obtainable. If an assay of ? 20 per
ton can bo secured the company will prob
ably continuo operations.
In prospoctlng the ground n peculiar thnlg
wns discovered. Almost the entire ground
nooms to have been worked at some time In
the past. A wall surrounds the whole sand
bed about three miles In length. This gives
evidence of having been constructed for the
purpose of working the sand by some pro
cess. While digging for bed-rock the pros
pectors found that the ground hud been
worked onco. This fact gave credence to the
story that n veritable old Spanish mine had
been discovered. One man claims to have
found the ruins of an ancient smaller near
the lied Creek camp.
This placer ground , It Is said , was located
several years ago by.somo of the Utah pion
eers. They passed through Mantl nt night
In order to prevent suspicion resting upon
them , and tried to find the spot where an
old miner had panned out some line speci
mens of gold. The Identical ground upon
which the lied Creek company now holds
claims Is said to have been visited and
panned. At that thno there was much op
position to the opening of gold mines and
the placer Hilda wore deserted.
Bert Seaboldt , the well known usphaltum
operator of Fort Duchcsno , who Is .spending
ft few days In the city , said to a Salt Lake
Tribune representative that ho bslievcd a
blR mining boom would follow the opening
of the Ulntnh nnd Uncompahgro reserva
tions. The best mining country In the
IHntnh reservation , ho says , extends west
ward for a distance of novcnty-llvo mlles
from White Hock canyon , which Is twenty-
flvo miles north of Fort Dtichesno , where It
Is bollpved silver , lead , copper end gold will
bo found In abundance.
With regard to the Uncompahgro reserva
tion Mr. Seaboldt says that , aside from the
placar mines on Green river , jt runs princi
pally to asphalt , and that these fields , which
extend for tt long distance along the eastern
sldo of the reservation , nro the largest In
the world.
The following brief address In the Interest
of the west Is being circulated :
Active preparations are being mada for
the next National Irrigation congress , which
mceta In Denver September 3-10. Are the
people of the far west capable of rising
to a great opportunity ? Shall history be
made nt Denver ? These are questions
that must bo answered now. No subject Is
of as great Importance to so many people
as Irrigation.
Practical Illustration of the results of Irri
gation In Colorado will be given these who
attend the congress , by means of a number
of excursions , which will bo run to the
agricultural centers of the state.
Lot avery ono who can do so attend this
congress. Low rates will bo made by the

orders for transportation of coke , and Is
making uvery preparation for a run.
This copptr vln Is sixty-five feet wldo and
Is known as the lllg Copper. There U said
to bo enough good ore In sight to run a
forty-ton smelter for two years. A shaft Is
to bo sunk on the vein at once to the depth
of 300 feet. In addition u tunnel will ba

One of the grandest Irrigating scheme :
undertaken In this state , says the Portland
Oregonlan , Is that of the Oregon Land , Irri
gation , Fuel and Lumber company , for the
Improvement of the Oak Grove , Juniper Flat
and \Vapanltla plains InVasco county , com
prising 15,000 acres of valley land and about
10,000 acres of foothill land. The company ,
with a capital stock of $500,000 , Is building n
ditch thirty-six miles In length , to take wutcr
from Clear creek for the Irrigation of this
tract of country , and sections of the ditch ,
amounting In all to about twenty miles , are
completed. About fifty teams and 125 men
are employed on the work , and the force will
soon bo Increased.
The lands to bo Irrigated are In a valley
surrounded by the Cascades , Mutton motni
tains and Tygh Ridge mountains , and Ho
between Tygh valley and the Warm Springs
reservation. They arc well adapted to grow
Ing grain , hops and fruit. They can be
reached from Portland In a day and a half
by the Ilarlow Pass road to Government
camp , thence by the road running south
across the range to the Oak Grove country ,
which Is now the most traveled road across
the mountains , over 1,000 teams having
crossed on It last year.
When the ditch Is completed , logs and
lumber can bo rafted down It from the moun
tains at the head of Clear creek Into the Des
Chutes , and so on down the .Columbia to
Portland. When a railroad is built across
the Cascades by way of the Uarlow pass It
will tap that section of country.
Thirty or forty out of the gold claims lo-
catpd at Coehetopa pan gold In large quan
tities , says the Saguache Crescent. George
Fleming Is Interested In the Craig-Gilbert
claim , and he Informs this cfflce that a
piece of ere taken from their dump , with no
Idea of getting a rich specimen , showed an as
say value of ? 92. The dump has since been
picked over with a view to getting a general
average of the ore , and If the value shown
by the first assay holds , the owners will
begin shipping at once.

summer ? The Indications really seem to
Silver mountain Is again coming to the
front. The strike In the New Deal mine Is
creating a general stampede for the moun
tain. Old claims that have lain idle are
being restaked and worked , nnd quite a
number of parties from a distance who
have money nro Investigating the merits of
the mountain , rays a special to the Denver
News. About twenty claims have been
staked off this week , and once again the road
Is lotted with teams hauling up supplies.
The pay mineral Is there , and all that is
needed is a little money and lots of hard
work to begin shipments. It Is estimated
that $10 ore , It found In any quantity , can
bo worked at a profit , as the cost to get It
to market will not exceed $5 per ton.
A most surprising strike of free milling
gold ere was made in the Annie lode , fif
teen miles east of here , two weeks ago by
the Fullenwlder brothers , says a Mosca
special to the Denver Newc. Nothing was
said of the nnd until assays had been made
with the astonishing result of $42,000 per
ton. The gold Is found In honey comb
quartz , easily worked , almost crushing In
the hand.
Much of It Is visible to the naked eye ,
and is certainly a sight to see Rich float
has been found In that vicinity for years.
They have four feet of It In plain view ,
and are In only six feet. The greatest cx-
cltomont prevails here , and much ground Is
being staked today. The find is a few
mlles ncrtli of Mount Blanco , and In a dis
trict that promises wonderful things In the
near future.

What was at first thought to be a genuine
ghost put In Ita appearance at the Dawson
county Jail the other night. Two guards
were asleep In the Jail at the time , and
they were rudely awakened by unearthly
noises proceeding from the corridor. Spring
ing from their downy couches nnd seizing
shotguns nnd a lamp or two they proceeded
{ o Investigate , and found a table In the
west room overturned and lying bottom-side
up , with dishes , etc. , scattered over the
floor. No one had evidently been In the
room , and two prisoners , Burke and Don
nelly , were securely locked In the Iron cages
adjoining. The prisoners had before claimed
the place was haunted , and now , they as
serted. It was made manifest that ghosts
walked abroad. The deputies could not
unravel the mystery , but the next day Sheriff
Hobson made a careful examination of the
room and found a cord , with a nail curved
In the shape of a hook attached to tt ,
fastened to a coal hod. The cord ran along
the top of the room and ended Inside the
cage. And the spook business came to an
abrupt ond. The prisoners wanted to be
placed In another room In the Jail with
King , Thompson and Hilton , and In order to
have their desire gratified , had adopted the

Marlon Crawford reads n lecture to Amer
icans who decry the city of Washington
and Its society , in an article which ho con
tributes to the August number of the
Century. As to the much discussed Wash
ington monument , Mr. Crawford says :
A famous living sculptor of ours has given
us his opinion In condemnation of the Wash
ington monument. It Is sometimes called
the Obelisk , for the comparatively simple
reason tluit It Is onu , Just as "they called
Peter , people said , because It was Ills name. "
With alt due respect to the sculptor's right
of judgment , which Is unquestioned , wo may
differ with him nnd yet not brand ourselves
barbarians. To the present writer It seems
not too much to say that In a certain light
the Obelisk Is the most Imposing simple ob
ject of great dimensions In the whole world.
Doubtless when teen , as It always can be
seen by day , from a distance of two or three
miles , nnd from different parts of the city ,
cut off by a line of modern roofs across a
palo sky , there Is nothing remarkable or
beautiful about It. It Is then but Iho top of
nn obelisk , and nothing more ; a slender ,
straight line of stone visible In nn uninter
esting atmosphere. Kven then It can hardly
bo said to be offensive , for It Is too simple
to offend.
Go lo It at evening , when the sunset
lights have faded nnd the full moon Is rising.
It Is Impossible not to see Its beauty then.
Lor some reason , not Immediately apparent ,
the white light Is not reflected from the
lower half of It when the moon Is not far
above the horizon. The lines are nil there ,
but the shaft Is only a soft shadow below ,
gradually growing clearer as It rises , and
ending In a blaze of sliver against the dark
sky. The enormous proportions are touched
then with a profound mystery ; the solidity of
the symbol disappears , the greatness of the
thought remains , the unending vastness of the
d a Is overwhelming. Illock
upon block , line
by line , is was built up with granite from
many states , a union of many Into ono sim
ple whole , a true symbol of what wo Ameri
cans are trying to make of ourselves , of our
country and of our beliefs. There Is the solid
foundation , proved and tried , which we know
of and trust In. There Is the dark and
shadowy present , through wnlch the grand ,
straight lines are felt rather than seen.
And there , high In the still air , points the
gleaming future , perfect at all points , bright
at all points , lofty as all but heaven Itself.
There Is the symbol. We may ask of our
selves whether we are to overtake the
shadows and reach the light , wo or our chil
dren , or our chlldern's children ; or whether
the darkness will creep up with us always ,
and with them , for all ages to come , and
even to the end.
The Obelisk is beautiful not only by moon
light , as any ono may see who will take the
trouble to look at It with eyes human rather
than critical at evening , for Instance , from
the terrace of the capltol , when all the world
is sinking toward Its mighty plunge Into
darkness through the foam of the cloud
breakers and the purple wash of night's rising
tide ; or at early morning , when the darkness
sinks back , and the first blush of day warms
the pinnacle of the lonely shaft as though
it had stabbed night in the sky and drawn
the sweet blood ot daylight upon Its point.
Most notably is It beautiful at such times
when seen with the whole city from the great
military cemetery on the heights of Arling
ton , than which few points In the world com
mand a. more lovely view.
There In the quiet earth the solemn dead
lie sldo by side , the many who fought for
us when we were but their children , and
who , for ours , will fight their Immortal bat
tles again in the clouds like the warriors of
old. Many of us have heroes of our own name
and race lying there In tlie broad tree-
hanimod meadows , and among the flowers ,
and In that chosen rank where the great
generals He , as they fought In the forefront
of the enemy , facing not now enemies but
friends , the deep , sweet valley with the qulot
river at their feet. And far away , beside
the airy dome of the capltol , the single shaft
rises sunward , and tells In shadow-tlmo for
us , the living , the hours of the dead men's
endless day.

A Baby ( ! lrl Visits the Honso nnd Calls on
the Acting Spriiknr.
Just after the house had been called to
order the other day , says the Washington
Post , a dark-haired baby girl toddled down the
cintor aisle. She was dressed in white ,
with a dainty muslin cap fastened down
upon her pretty curls. She was a wco mlto
of a thing so small that when she reached
the steps she sat down and slid from step
to step , for oven the few Indies' descent was
beyond the reach of her short and chubby
legs. At the head of the aisle she paused ,
looking about her In childish wonder. Then
she noticed Speaker Pro Tern Richardson
sitting at the speaker's desk m all his glory ,
and with childish ambition she proceeded
to ' climb up the broad plattorm until she
stood by his sldo. Her head scarcely
reached to the top of his desk , but she
prattled away to him In baby fashion until
ho was compelled to turn away from her to
follow the proceedings of the houso. Then
aho half slid , halt tumbled down again until
she reached the group of pages , by whose
sldo she sat down , spreading out her tiny
skirts In true womanly fashion. Just at
that inomont a woman appeared at tbo main
.door of the house , frantically waving her
arms toward the llttlo ono. A doorkeeper
came up the aisle , took the llttlo one's hand
and asked her to go to her mother.
"No , no , " said the baby.
"Dut she has some candy for you , " said
the diplomatic If not altogether truthful
official , and without another word the youth
ful wanderer woe led In triumph to the arms r
of her distracted parent.
