CASE OF ALLEGED SALTING.
A somewhat sensational case of mine salt-
log has just come to light In this district , In
which M. Irlnnvrty of Denver was the Intended -
tended victim , says time Denver 'fimes.
The property In question Is the Alice , a
rlocation on Dul hi , or what was known
to cattlemen lS Bull hi before gold was discovered -
covered at Cripple Creek. 'fho hill Is south
and west of Wilson creole , and In n portion
' of the district where mineral has not yet
'I been found On the Alice a shaft has been
. - sunk to a depth of several feet , and In this
shaft a Peculiar formation was found , saro-
what resemblng tim gold-bearing quartz of
the district , but yet 1 Ito different.
m was this rock that they salted and attempted .
tempted to palm off on Mr. Finnerty. But
before he llald any money on the property
Ito called upon Wuensch , the well known
mining expert , to make an examination of
the property. 'fogether with Mr. Finnerty
and ! r. Wuensch , the owner of the sfled
mine went there and secured n number of
samples from the simaft , which , when as-
sayed , ran $131.40 to the ton. This was more
than Mr. Wuensch expect from the rock ,
and ho at once became snsplclous. That
night ho soaked soma of Limo best lookIng of
- ? - the rock mill night In water , and the next day
took I to the same assayer who hall n1de
the former test , The shrinkage In value was
80mothlnl phenomenal. There was a short-
ago of $111.80.
After this , Messrs. Wuenseh and Finnerty
agaIn went to the simaft , but found n man on
guard , who positively refused to show them
to cnter. Thil satisfied them beyond question -
ton that the mine had been suited , Ind Mr.
Wuensch returned to Iezmvor ) cursing the
man who had tried to put up a job on him
and his friend Flnnert
4 The names of time partl's who salted the
mine are kept quiet for the present , as pros-
cctons wi probably folio % % , although no
money changetl hantls on the deal before , time
trick was discoverell.

NOVEL LABOR EXCHANGE
A novel and so far successful means of
salving "the unemployed" problem has been
Inaugurated here , under 1 form of co-opera-
ton , says 1 l. Angeles special to the San ,
Francisco Examiner A number of persons
of both sexes who found themselves without
resources and unable to secure employment
got together , and have formed what they cal
the New Era Labor exchange. They number
327 , and will publish an appeal for assistance
In the city papers. They have , however , by
organization and Ideas assisted themselvea to
. :1 : great extent , and they only ask the opportunity -
tunly of Increasing their methods of self-
Dy the aid or some prominent citizens they

twenty-five of them busy , and furnishes them

now organizing a vegetable gardening de-

No worthy applicant Is denied admIssion
Into the ranks of the association , but nothing
more timahi board and lodging Is furnished
until after all contract and labor Is completed -
pleted , when each will receive his pro-rata

There has been a business-like method
about conductln time affair , which has caused
It to btm well received by the public , and
so far a decided amount of success has ben
met with , Much Is expected from the gar-

'fhelr laws , however , are the most unIque
feature . In the days when It was very
Inconvenient , If not Impo8lble , to send In-
dians to VictorIa to 'recelvo punishment
under the n'rltsh laws for ordinary mis-
demeanors , the missionaries were obliged to
form I code or laws themselves , with the I
help or a council chosen from the wiser In-
diana In the conmtnunlty. These laws are
still In torc . In the missIon and respected
by the peCple. Time following are 1 few of

This Is done viciously . No one In court
