has brought with him n number of speci

some of the claims which asiny a fabulous
amount nnd of which Mi Williams sis
there Is nn InrxhiuMIMo quantity.
Some of the specimens show free gold In
vlilblo quantified which assay between $20-

ual ipe > linens but the avcrnge runs high In
gold illver and load , and If It can enl ) bo
mined In sulllclcnt quantities the future of
the eiinp Is assured Some of the ore Is ex-
nctly like the California white quartz which
Is the principal kind found In thnt state The

Williams Is n co-pnrtner with Mr P W

mines of the older camps The average value
of the ore which has been taken out up to

and nbout the ounces of gold to the ton Mr
Williams states that he and his partnei
traced a vein for -I.BOO feet In length , which

In regard to the cargo trade from the

demand there Is the entire Mexican , Cen

Horses on the plains , at from $5 to $10. arc
not worth selling , and ) ot they are property
too valuable to kill and too cxuenslvo to
keep allvo. There Is now en route a trainload -
load as an experiment for shipment across
the water. Horse meat Is a common article
with the poor of Paris , and the present
tralnload Is destined for that market. Rates
on horses are higher than on cattle , but If
they can bo brought down , the experiment
can bo conducted very successfully
The horse canning business In Portland ,
which was Inaugurated last ) car with n
flourish of trumpets as It were , and for
which great success was predicted , failed
utterly and the projectors are wondering
now If they are ever going to got any
money out of their Investment.
The establishment down the river at Linn-
ton hns practically done nothing except to
manufacture fertilizing material for agri
culturists. The llrst batch of horses which
was brought In off the plains fulfilled all
the requirements , and the meat was ex

demand for canned horse meat neither the
establishments at The Dalles nor Llnnton
made a fortune on the venture. Ono of the
managers of the concerns who took n trip
east said that In time they might succeed
In building up a trade , but at present there
was llttlo or no demand.

If the slRiii of tlio times count for any
thing the AnncKe Juns heirs In this country
iii-l and the few others scattered on
the outshlo will be up and n-dolnfc again In
a shait time. The renewed ncllvlt } U now
he-lug nwnketipd on the Pacific const. Thli >
li became Oenernl W. 11 H. Hart of San
l-'ranclsco has returned home from New York
with assurances that the tlmo Is ripe foi
another legil move. Oeneral Unit bases
his allocations upon some decisions that he
h.-u dllK out of Iho old court rccouls. He
savs tint the supreme court of New Yoik In
ISS7 In a decision provided for the division
of the disputed property In twenty-tint-
patents According to hli thi'oiy all the
Annekc heirs will have to do lg to get after
the coin to cany out the provision.
As a llrst step General Hart proposed n
reorganization of the heirs In a compact
holy which shall work like n
great big beaver. He ndvlsed that
as soon na the organization H
completed Hits body petition the couit
to lew a 1 per cent assessment upon the
property to settle up the Indebtedness and
other expenses which have accumulated dur
ing the je-ars of contest. As soon us the
debt la cleared he avs that the heirs nil !
step Into their pioperty.
This ought to be good now a for some pee
pie In tliU city , because there me1 n number
of heirs here , as there are In eveiy other
city In this great country. U Is the fashion
to bo an Anneke Jans heir If 0110 wants to be
In the swim. If corpses luin over In their
graves on account of the troubles thej caused
by their brlof existence on enrth Anncko's
couch is pretty well tumbled She must have
hnd verv prolific blood In her veins
IiniltS AHi : NUMUItOU1 ?
No ono has over tried to c-alculato the
number of Annekc's desceiidnnto She Is
said to have seven or eight children and
each of these had seven or eight. Seven
or eight has been n good aveiage since
An heir that had or has only four Is dls-
graced and stands a good ohnnco of being
kicked out. If , however , by any chance or
mlschancc < . a genuine heir has only that num.
her , other heir usuallj stands read )
to make up the disciepanc ) b ) having four
teen or fifteen.
' 1 herein lleh the trouble The prolific
blood Is making too many heirs. Some of
the heirs are looking foivvaid to the time
when by Intermarriage everbody In the
United States will be an heir , and It ma ) not
oven stop nt that Of course , an ndnntage
might be found 111 this thnt the very III.IHS
of hells might stop the dispute by Inking

Hut on the other hand , with so mail ) heirs
It would not seem likely that even a good
part of New York would be able to give each
moro than enough to bit ) a piece of pic ,
especially If free silver carries This Is
the secret of the attempts to get posses
sion of the valuable propeit ) right away.
If Anneku's heirs cannot bo counted It
Is far more Impossible to estimate * the value
of the property. It Is located right In the
middle of Now Yoik , all about the plot
upon which Trinity chinch stands. The
ground In this vicinity has hocomo to valuable -
uablo that no figures are placed upon It
any moro U would take a small fortune
to buy a sqnaro foot Aa there nro about
sixty-two acres dnlmed. It will bo seen
that the Anneke holrs were no fools In pickIng -
Ing out the spot
There was a time when this piece of land
could hnvo been bought from the noble
red men for n good dilnk of whisky , but
oven that was a long tlmo before Anneke
cnmo on enrth Anneko was not really
responsible for all the trouble. It was In
reality her flisl husband who had the pull
with the government , for the land was
deeded to him ns n farm. After the death
of this good man and her second husband ,
the land was turned over Into Anneko's
nnnio ns the widow. When Anneko was
Dually laid nwny with her forefathers the
land was divided among the eight children
she had. All this occurred In the e'arly part
of the seventeenth century , when Now Yoik
was New Amsterdam and was only a speck
on the face of creation
Three ) ears after the grant was con
tinued to her children the Island was cap
tured by the English , nnd a little while
afterward , under duress or otherwise , the
children , excepting one , conveed the prop
erty to Governor Lovelace , as a private In
dividual. The cxioption was ono of An-
noko's second husband's sons , his name beIng -
Ing Hogardus. Ho couldn't deed over the
property , because ho was In his grove , and
hnd been thcio for some ) ears Two years
afterward the Dutch captured the city
again , but n jear later the Kngllsh got their
clutches upon It ngaln , nnd held It until
the United States ousted them Hut when
the English got back the ) sobcd the dis
puted property In behalf of the crown , Ig-
noiIng Lovelace's ownership Years after
ward the propelty was ionvecd to Trinity
church , und Its title wzs confirmed In 17SO ,
when the lent was extinguished.
The trouble was caused b ) llognrdus , be
cause if he had not been dead ho would
probably hive ( imveed his section of the
land to the English with the test , and there
would have been no AlincKo Jans licit H
Hut ns he was dead an a door nail at the
tlmo It would not bo fall to accuse him
of belli , ; responsible The circumstance ,
howovel , furnished an excuse for the first
litigation , when the third descendant of
Hogaidus in 17-41) ) began the first suit , on
the grounds that the property was obtained
from the crown by misrepresentation The
plaintiff was nonsuited , and some moro BIIIIH
were begun In 17CO , lf > 07 , 1830 , 1834 nnd
1817 In the Intter ) c > nr It was decided thnt
Trinity church had a valid possession of
the propert )
This deohion hnd llttlo effect upon the
heirs , however nnd as tlmo progressed they
worked harder nnd hnrdor to get hold of
the property. At the present tlmo regular
associations hava been formed In the larger
cities and sections of the country , with this
object In view. Iho American hclra arc
