It has been ascertained that the suicide of
John Uuah , a member of the Hoard of County
Commissioners , was duo to a. peculiar roisan
his repugnance to holding ofllcc , whoso
< ] ut I off ho otmumcd for the first tlmo on the
3d hist. He was of a very quiet , different
disposition , and the turmoil and log-rolling
with which this and similar offlces arc- sur
rounded preyed greatly on his mind. Ho
iwlshed to resign during a recent session of
the board , but give up the Idea when ad-
vlocd not to do KO by hl.s political friends ,
who believed that In a. short time ho would
become accustomed to the duties of Ills
new position , Ho took his life by placing
the muzzle of a shotgun at hU head , while
a ntlck wan utilized to touch the trigger nnd
discharge the weapon , Deccosed was very
popular , which Is testified to by the fact
that when he ran for commissioner in a dis
trict which Is democratic ho was elected ao
a republican , only three votes being cast
against him.

While It Is well known where < and when the
gold was discovered that created such world
wide excitement , few , perhaps , know the
history of the nnd. I am prompted at the
risk of being considered presumptuous to

Gcnaral ( Sutler bad selected n place on the
south fork of the American river to build a
sawmill , fifty-four miles from Sutler's fort ,
on the Sacramento river , known later as
Coloinn. Marshall had charge of the work.
Among those that wore omplojcd vvero
Peter Wclmcr and his wife , ilrs. Welmer ,
was cooking for the men and had the honor
of being the first white woman in the mines.
Whllo digging the "tall raco" for the mill
the men had noticed small bits of shiny sub
stance to which no attention was given until
.Marshall picked up quite a largo piece , which
ho declared was gold. Under the excitement
the men cjult work and -vvotit to camp.
-Mrs. Welmer was making soap from
leached nshcs , and as there vvero no acids or
other means nt hand to make a test , the
metal waa subjected to the "soap test" by
boiling It in the soap. Its color was not
changed when exposed to the air , and
Marsnall was confirmed in hlji belief that it
was gold. Leaving the piece of metal In the
possession of Mis. Welmer ho returned nnd
made a systematic search for moro of the
stuff. 'Ho ' procured quite a quantity , which
ho sent by carrier to General Sutler at the
fort , who forwarded it to Monterey , the then
sail of government , where it was pronounced
to bo gold ! One of the results will bo jour
Golden Jubilee In 1838.
I arrived In Coloma in 1852 and soon be-
canio acquainted with Marshal ! and Mr. and
Mrs. Welmer , and during the following jear
made my home at times with the Wolniers
and hoard the foregoing statement many
times. Mrs. Wolmcr was in possession of the
first plcco of gold when I last saw her or
had'any knowledge o where she was living
about 1876. She had had many offers , but
icfused to sell It for the prices offered.
It was what miners call "wash" gold ,
slightly oblong , somewhat flat and smooth
mid weighed a little less than half an ounce.
Many museums and collections of curios claim
to exhibit the first 'piece of gold found In
For the first few years In the mines a man
ran moro rlak of toeing hung for committing
a theft than one docs now for committing a
murder. Honesty was the watchword.
Mlneis would leave the result of a "clean
up" fiomotlmcs amounting to several ounces
of gold In their pan or a dish , exposed for
hours whllo they vvero away to their meals
or otherwise employed , with no thought of
Us being stolon. Sometimes on their return
they would find ono or more prospectors or
visitors examining the gold nnd commenting
on weight and quality.
Among many who were prominent at thit
tlmo In Coloma were Altryan , merchant ;
Searlcs , agent for Adams & Co'a KxprcM ;
Chalmers , proprietor of Chalmers' hotel , who
was among the first , if not the first , to
demonstrate the superiority of the foothills
for fruit growing ; Dan Waldron , the "Coloma
postmaster ; " Major Ormaby , "mlno host" of
the leading hotel In the town , "The Winters"
( ho waa killed some years after In an Indian
fight at Hagtown , on the Carson river , In
Nevada ) , and that prince of good fellows ,
"Davo" Ilu el I. sheriff , afterward well known
In mining circles.
Sacramento was n distributing point for
the mines and during the winter of IS52-3

Tie ! old colnago machinery now in tao
mint will go to the Colorado State Historical
society , Director rrcaton hurtng coosontod to
thla arrangement , provldoJ that the machin
ery la at all times subject to the order of
the government , sajs the Denver Republican.
Inasmuch as this machinery la of no possible
use to tbo United SMtcs , thcdlca bolng made
for private coin and the pattern of the stamps
being no longer used In the United States
mlntu , an effort Is to bo made to eccuro an
act of congress transferring the absolute
ortiiertnlp of the plant to the aUto of Colorado
rado , as historical relics connected with the
early history of Colorado ulonc.
The story of this coining machinery , \v8ilch
for jeans has been llttlo more than junk
Iron , Is extremely Interesting , < w It on
thcso machines that the only Imitation cf
the gold coins of the United States was over
trade and circulated publicly na money with
out any effort ut concealment. It la a fact
not gcneraly known that the flrat law passed
by ccngrcss for the prevention of coining
imitations of the coin of the United State , ?
wan the act of 18C3 , which makes such imi
tation a felony , and that this act was the di
rect result of the of gold coin In
Denver. TJio establishment of a mli t In Den
ver was uleo ono result of the early efforts
to provide the people of Colorado with cur
rent coin made from native gold.
Soon after the discovery of gold In Colorado
Clark , Gruber & Co. of Leavennorth estab
lished a banking house in Denver and did a
largo bushiKu In gold dust , which was
shipped to the parent house In Leavenworfh
It waa not long bcforo the firm discovered
that that vv .s an expensive way of doing
business. The express cornpjnles then doing
business between Denver and the Missouri
river charged a very high rate for tmrsporta-
tlon , often cs high as 3 anl 4 per cent , on ac
count of the extra risk from Indiana nnd
road agents , and the compcoy was oftta com
pelled to submit to very acricrns loss. Harry
Gruber , now u icaldent of Cripple Creek ,
was the local r rtncr and marager of the
firm. Almcst the only currency -In circula
tion here at the time was gold dint , and
every business had its gold scales In vvhlch
the dust was weighed , payment therefor
being made at the rate -determined by assay
for gold from .my given locality. It occuired
to Mr. Gruber that If the coin could be made
In Denver all expense of transportation could
bo saved , cs the gold cclns could bo paid
out in exchange for the dual or bullion in
stead of semllm ; the latter by express to
Leavenworth and the expense of both trans
portations frequently amounting to C per
cent of the value of the shipments. Attoi-
tiejs In Denver were consulted anl while all
seemed to believe that to coin United States
money was against the law , no statute bear
ing on the subject could bo fouud.
To settle the question Mr. Gruber went to
Leavenworth and acquainted his partners
with the proposition and the icsult ot lin
Investigations. They vvero incredulous , as
it seemed impossible that a government like
that of the United States could exist vith -
out a law for the prevention of the counter
feiting of its own cnin , Tiut finally the m-it-
ter wits submitted to the attorney of th'
firm , an eminent lawyer of St. LoJls , who
after a careful examination of the statutes
parsed by congress since the foundation ol
the government decided that there was co
law In the United States against the coining
of money by Individuals.
Machinery was at once purchased and Mr
Gruber returned to Denver and erected the
brick building still standing at the corner c
Sixteenth and Market streets , that Is digni
fied with the title of the United States mint.
The first coins designed were S10 and $20
gold pieces , having on one side a representa
tion of Pike's Peak and on the other the
name of the firm The coins' at first were
made with so little alloy that they were
brittle , a fall on a stone pavement fre
quently causing them to fall to pieces. This
defect was duo to the doJlro of Clark
Gruber & Co. to make sure that the coins
v\ere of full value. After a. short time it iv--i
decided to change the coins , the now colm
being perfect Imitations cf United State ,
coins except that the wording was "Clark ,
Gruber & Co " Instead of Unltd States of
America , " and including the $20 , $10 , $5 anJ
$2 50 pieces. There still remained a lurking
fear that there might t > o come law on the
subject , and therefore to save the firm from
any possible prosecution for short weight ,
the coins contained one per cent moio gold
than thcso of the United Statei , each $20
piece being actually worth $20 20. The colnb
circulated freely and Clark , Gruber & Co
reall/ed very handsomely from their Invest
ment , but It v\as noticed that the coins wc'o
In circulation but n short time 'bnforc ill *
appearing , the overweight causing them to be
sent to the melting pot.
