Peeke. who failed not to put in prac

It is safe to say that the re-

enable those interested to arrive at a

having nothing to do visited the spot,
and for pastime were allowed to dig
out some of the rock and pan out the
gold. As every man in that vicinity
was in bad condition financially, and
without other means for raising the '
money for the proper celebration of the
approaching rourth of July, quite an
onenmg was made and the proceeds de
voted to that perpese.
From this little incident dates the
cis -overy of gold in the Holy Terror
ntintr. which from day to day causes
greater excitement in mining circles.

Much cf the ore runs 5200 to- the ton. ,
Persistent prospecting revealed no
other place where the vein came to the
surface save this one spot, which has
been walked over eerj day for years. '
Mr Franklin took in T. C Blair as
partner, and a shaft was begun, the
ore taken out being treated in the Key
stone mdL an I returned value much
above the expense of sinking the
shaft. When the shaft reached a '
' depth of forty fret, developing a well ,
denned vein, which steadily improved ,
j with width and value as depth was
gained, the owners made an arrange
ment with J. J. Fayei ana Albert Ams-
, bury, by which they agreed to erect a
stamp mill on the property in consid- '
1 eration of a half interest in the mine.
A five stamp mill with an engine ca-
pacity of ten stamps or more wascuick-
i ly built at a cost of a coat 55, COO, and
put in operation three weeks age
While the mill was being built men
were employed to run drifts north and I
south from the shaft at a depth of
forty feet, while sinking was pushed in
the shaft. M est of the ore milled has
teen taken from these drifts. The i
vein consists of marvelcusly rich ore. .
averaging sixteen inchvs on one wall.
