THIN VEIN OF COAL FOUND
IN DODGE COUNTY
FREMONT, Neb., Dec. 13.-(Speclal.)
Eph Johnson, a farmer of Logan town
ship, Is firmly of the opinion that he has
discovered a good vein of coal on his
farm and was In town yesterday on his
way to Lincoln to make a formal applica
tion for the state bounty. He I'.aa sent
considerable time and money this year
Investigating the coal question and says
that he has located a vein at a depth of
about twenty-five feet and about three
feet In thickness. lie tried It In the fur
nace at his house and In a range and
says It burned well. Mr. Johnson has
had the surrounding territory carefully
examined by expert coal men and geolo
gists who tell him thatjlie Indications are
favorable. This is the third discovery of
coal that haa been made in this county.
The first was near Jamestown about
twenty-five years ago. There was coal
there, but it was thin, mixed with shale
and worthless. The next was ubout fif
teen years ago out In Maple township,
where several thin veins were cut while
digging a well. They were over 200 feet
down and of poor quality. The last dis
covery Is In a different part of the
county and looks as though It might turn
out to 'be . worth mining. Experts who
have examined the country think the coal
probably covers a tract at least three
miles in length. There are no vins out
cropping. WANTS TEN THOUSAND
