Means Much For Cranbrook
Construction of the Corbin Ro^d
Is Now Assured
It Will Make Cranbrook An Important R-aJl-
wa.y Centre
No Other Outside Move Could Mean as Much
For This Town
The Herald has maintained from
the inception ol lhe idea that 'he
building ol tlie Corbln road to connect Spokane with the Crows Nest
branch al Yahk would mean mtiJ.i
lor the town of Cranbrook. For the
past year there has been considerable
said about ihis projected Hue, but
nothing ol an .uitlioritive nature,
since 1). C, Corbin, the promoter, is
a man of few words until he is leady
lo act. That time has now come and
-Mr. Corbin, who lias jusl returned
irom uu hurried visit to Kuropo,
1 feely announces that tht* money is .ill
ready for construction ami that iwocit
will be inaugural*--.! wltltln two or
throo weeks. Corps ol /surveyors urc
already out on the proposed Hue and
headquarters have been established at
Spokane with every facility to carry
forward the work as rapidly as possible. Mr. Corbin savs that the whole
line frum Spokane io the boundary
will be completed and ready for operation within fifteen months, The C.
1*. It. will commence work within a
short time In build Iheir part of lhe
road, about twelve miles, from Yahk
to llie boundary, where il will meet
the Corbin road.
The fact ihat this new connection
will give the people ol Spokane the
shorttsi line in Si. I'aul, means at
the start ihat it will become .. lift
important factor in transcontlne.'iLul
traltic as soon as il is ready for l.u.s-
iness, anil that in consequence of ihts
fart Cranbrook will become an Important point on this road, ll will
be possible for a person to leave
Spokane and reach Cranbrook "wl tit In
six hours after this line is iu operation. That- means thai Cranhr >ok
will be the gateway to Kasl Kootenay for the people of lhe Notihwesi-
'lii States, and will he one of lhe
if the mosl Important divisional
points iiulhe lines. As soon as Wai-
oyer the new line is fully established ilure will nu doubt i,v a through

hai within three year'! alter ftvik

have at Ipafct 6,000 people with a gond
chance for many more thousands.

The. fo!'owing is an obituary of J,
\V. Uobinson, of Prince Kdwards Island, father of J. W. Uobinson of the
Unbinsnn-McKen/.ie Lumber company,
taker, from the Charlottetown I'at-
riot of February lfi:
"Wo deeply regret to learn ol the
death of Mr. John W. 'Robinson, ono
of the most respected and widely
known residents of Brackley Point.
He was a son of the late Mr. Joint
Uobinson, one ot the earliest settlers
iu Charlottetown. After spending his
boyhood here he removed to Robinson's Island, where he farmed tor
quite n number of years, and from
whom the island derived its name.
At the time of his death he still
owned,   co-jointly  with his brother,
tlonal 'n a connection with lhe Canadian Pacific railroad at the international boundary, ami build it righl
away,'' said 1). P. Corbln, who returned Tuesday from New York mnl
Europe to a representative of U.c
"I am going lo huil.l a line lo do
business on, and 1 shall make o roal
first class iu all respects. The Canadian Pacific management has -.,i.. i
orders [nr the Immediate construction
of its pari of tlie road down lo a
connection with our road al tho International boundary.
"We have entered into a 50    via*.
traffic agreement   with  the Caqadia.il
Pacific miller terms which rendcy;   it
impossible that ihe Spokane liiiVriu-
tional shall ever pass lo any    other
control  than lhe Canadian Pacific.

i the bonds were subscribed by six nie:i
iu equal amounts,  1 have overfilling
I arranged   financially   and   nihcrw U?,
and would not starl const nut inn i n-
less I did have."
"When do you expect to start construction?
•'Just as quickly as I cau got nt
ii. I have now three engineering oar*
ties in tile field; another will start in
a day or two, anil still another nexl
week. To facilitate operations I lul
probably have seven engineering p.n*-
ties iu the field, working all along the
line from   Spokane lo lhe h ula.y
Tlie work is to make the ileliniif location of the road, as a UP'Qfi01 "'
preliminary surveys liave previously
been made.
"I have !■:. .1, Roberts with mc. lie
will have charge ot tin' construction
of the road. K. ti. Taber, whn was
for several years with mu on lhc
Spokane Kails & Northern will be

lose no lime, hut build the road as
quickly as 1 can. Nothing is save.l
hy dragging along. I have competent
men, just as eompeieni as I know uf,
ami ihat is a good deal, I tell you.''
" Will the construction wmk he
started by early summer.'''
"Ub, before then. 1 should Miiuk
that we ought lo begin construction
in Ihf course of three weeks. Wn
shall probably begin construction on
the upper end of the line."
"Have the rails been ordered?"
"Nol yel, but 1 shall order them
shortly. My locomotives and cars lor
work '-oh construction I shall expect
hcre;br July—jusl its quickly as 1 can
get them."
Mr. -Corbin indicated that he would
not ask the citizens of Spokane to
donnle a right of way into the city.
"I had expected," be said, "that
the people here would feel like ;>io-
viding a right of way into the loWit,
hut ii they are not disposed in In it,
1 shall do il myself, and nnt a Mel
al nil hurt over lhe matter. Wo nre

Mr. Peter Windover Robinson, this
island situated in Rusiico harbor.
About forty years ago he removed to
Rracklcy Point, where he farmed up
lo the time of his demise. Mr. Robinson bad reached the advanced age
of four .score and one years. He was
a fine type of the good old ISliglish
gentleman.   During his residence    in
, this thriving section of the island he
was known, not only iu his own district but in adjacent disliicls and in
town, a.s a man worthy of the high
esteem in which he was held, lu |'Ol-
itics ho was one of ihe slattnchest
Liberals In the province, antl although
in ailing health at the last provincial
election he polled votes in three dis-
' Uriels, namely: Brackley Point, iVest,
River,   and   Charlottetown.     In ie-
caifl the terminals at the mosl ed-
Ivantageous point, ami regard any p>i-
ohascs I have made of Spokane real
!estate as a good investment, 'lhc
building of this road, iu my judgment
means a great deal for Spokane, and
11 ihe terminals should he located
! elsewhere 1 expect lo make a ijond
'profit mi all real estate 1 now hold."
' Mr. Corbln is in excellent health
-and vigor, and while he is nol a (c-

Since it has developed that the new

for the benefit of the deserving needy
Mr. Sage at the time of his death
was not a rich man, but he had his

worth some money. The Herald trusts
that the sum thus contributed by Mr.
Sage may be the means of ,!oing
good. if so his soul will rest in
peace, for his great desire to do \_ooA
will meet with fulfillment.
The Herald has one desire, and one
hope, and that is the advancement of
Cranbrook and South East Knotem.7.
The meeting of the board ..f trade

times in Cranbrook. It gave evidence
of increased interest in the alT-iirs of

any line of action.

J, S. Dennis, of the C. P. It., has

with respect to the land grant to the

On the 9th of this month, at the
hospital in Spokane, Leroy Sage, of
Cranbrook, died of liver complaint,
after a lingering illness of four
months. The remains were brought
back to Cranbrook on Tuesday by
James Greer, who went to Spokane
for that purpose, and rthe funeral was
held Tuesday afternoon at the late
residence of tbe deceased, at 4 o'clock
Hev. Thompson, of the Methodist
church, officiating. The services were
brief and were attended by many of
the friends ol the deceased. Tbe remains were interred in the Cranbrook
cemetery. J. Manning, J. P. Fink,
W. T. Keid, F. Godderies, F. E.
Simpson and G. H. Hremner acted as
pall hearers.
Leroy Sage was a Cranbrook pioneer. He was born in Kentucky
about 50 years ago and aside from a
sister, whom he had not seen for over
twenty years, he had mi close relatives. He moved from Montana to
Wardner in the early days of that
town and had a hard struggle there
for a year or more. Finally he got
on his feet and from that time to his
death he prospered. When Cranbrook
was giving promise oi being a town
Mr, Sage came here and built the
building in which he carried on bis
business up to the last. Starting in
modestly in a few years he carried
quite a large stock and had worked up a big business in the secondhand    line,
other arrangements are made
all  probability permanently.

The new vicar assumed charge of
the parish on Sunday. Mr. Beacham is an honor graduate of Manitoba

The parish of Holy Trinity i.s growing very rapidly and it may be ns-

remarks, ii is a pleasure to Know
that, notwithstanding the severe losses sustained by the Toronto fire of
April last year, oecuring as it did in

being a company capitalized principally by Toronto business men. ont
can readily understand that in u

is encouraging for those who support

The Woman who Would
tht Grocer who wouldn't.
Every day from five to fifteen letters an- received by
The Ogilvie Flour Mills Co, from, women living in the
smaller towns throughout Camilla, saying they have asked
their grocer for Royal Household liiour but can't get it.
One writes—"1 told my grocer, Mr.-—, that I would buy
'Royal Household * regularly if he would always keep it
on hand, but he said he wouldn't take on another brand of
flour until he was obliged to." Another says—"My grocer
is an 'old logic' and never gets the newest or the best
things until the year after." A third says—"We haven't
an enterprising grocer in our town and are obliged to send
t0 -'o'" 'Royal Household' or take a poorer hour."
Write dirert to Og'ilvie's.
If you can't get "Royal Household" from your grocer,
write to us direct—we will immediate^ give vou the name
of the nearest grocer who keeps "Royal Household" and
send you also the "Royal Household" recipes. There is no
good reason why your grocer should compel you to use
inferior flour—no lirst cla^s grocer will hesitate to order
"Royal Household" ibr you, and even the smallest dealer

enay river that had drawn the people
out. The arrival ot these boats from
Jennings, Monl.. was a great event
those days. Koi t Steele was the only
village iu lhe country at that lime
aud people were llockiug iu there to
wait for the railroad, whieh was lo
open up and develop this part of il.e
world. At that time there were no
women between Kort Steele antl Nelson, although before fall tbere were
several. The Cranhrook house was
built that fall and Irom its door nothing could be seen, with the exception
of Col. Baiter's bouse, but a vast
stretch of prairie with a background
of beautiful rock les. I drove over
from Steele very often that summer
and one would need to slretch One's
Imagination a wee bit when they
were told that the depot was to le
built over there, and the hotels over
there, and such a man had purchased
such lots and so on, as an huudred
acres of tbe towuslte wan a Held o(
oats, and there were a good many
more acres ol hay upon the low
places. Mr. Ilaket informed me that
he realized $U,000 from his hay and
oats that year. The price ol provisions was very high those days in Kort
Stifle. Flour $16 a barrel, eggs 75
cents a dozrn, butter B0 cents a
pound, oil 75 cents per gallon, and
so forth. However, there was plenty
ol work and good wages. The roads
were something awful. Tbe stage
made trips from Kalispel, Mont., and
from Golden, B. C, 1G0 miles either
way, and no choice of roads. Accidents happened very often. On one
trip tlie stage coming in from Golden
was overturned and a man by the
name of James Brady had two ribs
fractured and his arm broken. This
happened far away from habitation
and a messenger had to be sent hack
to Golden for help, a distance of 50
miles. The passengers had to camp
for the night to wait for the return
of the messenger and the horses.
"I novor will forget a trip I took
that winter over what was called the
tote road from Swansea :i tho hiding at Ktisliauook. I was going to
California for the winter. This road
which was const* toted to n» »■*5 supplies (or men woraing ai thu tu.i.cl
and |tong the line, was Very t.aiiow
ti trips. The passengers were all safely landed. This steamer was afterward raised and repaired.

and the store now occupied hy Mr.
McDermot had been built and lumber
was on the ground everywhere for
new buildings. This was In May. The
first Herald is dated March 22, r-nd
from its pages the first artiele we ste
is headed "Beaut If 111 Cranbrook." In
glowing terms it tell us of the ideal
spot that nature has intended for lhc
building of a large city. It tells ns
that O. H. Miner is about to start
up in the hardware business and Mr.
Beattie in the drug business. It
tells of Mrs. Donahue in her East
Kootenay hotel and dwells upon her
splendid cooking. It tells us of lhc
Cranbrook Lumber company and its
well equipped plant. It tells of the
first religions services held in the
dining room of the East Kootenay
hotel. J. G. Duncan preached to a
large congregation, population considered. Some writers have staled lli.tt
Rev. Mr. Ball preached lhc first sermon in Cranhrook but such is not the
case. Another minister by the
name of Oliver preached here several
times that summer before Mr. .tall
"There are five advertisements in
this paper, the two hotels and hardware store already mentioned, J. II.
Sibbald, contractor, G, L. Milliard,
blacksmith. There were live ladies
here at that time, Mrs. Angus Morrison, Mrs. Donahue, Mrs. R. L. Pratt,
Miss Lizzie McPI.cc and Mrs. Eyre.
This paper says that Mr. Sili-bald intends starting a dairy but hesitates
on account of cows.He says, however, that with the fine quantities of
good spring water here two or three
cows would easily give a barrel of
The next paper tells of the paymaster passing through town accompanied by mounted police. People who
carried money those days had to be
careful or they would lose both money and life, as there was aboui 2,'ion

"June 11th we hear of the building
of the Commercial or Manitoba hotel and it says 'that it will be the
finest in the Kootenays, the front in
particular     will be quite attractive,
' having two mammoth bay windows
in each side of lhe second story. The
interior will be furnished in flrstclass
j style. About this time T. A. Oreigh-
tou slat ted in the retail grocery business iu lhc store now occupied by
Morrow A .McFarlane, and L. B. Van
Decar built the building now owned
by the Bank of Commerce. The soiling of this building lo the Hank of
Commerce was the first house and lot
sold in Cranbrook.
"July liiih excavating for tho cellar
of the Cosmopolitan hotel was begun.
"July 26th town lots iu Elko are
put on the market. The paper says,
'some want gold, some want silver,
and all want lots in Elko. Choice
business lots, 30x100 feet, w(th 20
foot alley, from $50 to $11)0 a lot.'
A paper of August 4th tells us that
the Leiteh Brothers have sold their
gents' furnishing business lo Reid A
Co. of Wardner and Moyie.
"August 18th Rev. Cattanach, representing the Methodist church ol
Canada, held services in the Commercial, that is the Manitoba hotel, and
he secured the promise of a lot lor
building a church.
"Ou Saturday afternoon, August
23rd, at three o'clock, the lirsi train
Of cars passed over the Kootenay liver at Wardner. Conductor Lock heart
had charge of the train, Hugh Brock
was at the throttle, Fireman Campbell was at the furnace, and in the
cab were Hugh Council and F. Iv
"The steel was laid inlo Cranbrook
on August 23rd. After this date the
growth of our town was rapid. No
more long boat rides, tedious, lire-
some and dangerous drives lu old
lumbering stages. Hereafter we can
make our trips in comfort and case,
rolling over the country in Pullmans.
But not quite yet, lor our lirst cats
were box cars with slat seats and the
trains were something after the 1'in-
negan style, 'off again, on again,
gone again,1 and as the cars did not
go down to the boat at the landing
there was a long walk from the cars
lo the boat. I have copied from lhe
Herald one man's experience coming
over from Nelson to Cranhrook. lie
says: "The boat lands the passengers on the trestle that is built
across the swamp and lower end of
the lake. There is an incline of about
50 feet, then there i.s a walk of about
a mile across the bridge. To a tight
rope walker this trip might be a
pleasure, but to ordinary mortals it's
a different   proposition.    Sometimes
. the ties were in position, some till
they   were   not.   If not you had to
take to   the stringers and   with
satchel   in one hand and air tn the
other ynu had to do the best you
could, as failure meant a ducking or
worse yet, broken limbs, so we hob-
hied hopped and crawled until land
was reached.'

til this time at Wardner in the news*
paper business, eame to Cunhrouk to
lake personal charge o| iho

to that time. H- T. Brown, ui

Simpson for two years. They edited
both the International of W.irdurt

Lieutenant Governor in Council tor
permission lo clear out and remove
obstructions from the following
creeks in East Kootenay, and build
dams and slides thereon, and to mak'd
other improvements for the purpose
ol making the said creeks navigable
for logs:

on the llritish Columbia Southern
railway, to a point upstream about
six miles south:
Thompson creek, from where it
crossps the British Columbia Southern-railway, about three miles east
from Kitchener to a point upstream
about six miles south.
The only lands affected by l.trtfn
improvements are my timber licenses.
The only waters affected by said
Improvements are Russell creek and

Fertile, March 13.—Yesterday mo'ii
ing during the terrific wind storm
which was raging through the Koote
nays, a lire broke out at Coal Creek
mines, which spread with great tepidity, ami soon taught hold ol ibe
tipple which spanned the creek ueni
the entrance. This tipple ..was the
largest in the wUt. 1 I strotehes
from the north to tdc south side ef
the val-ey, and was in reality an immense bridge about thirty feet wide
and mill to 1000 feet long. All tin
tracks leading into the three mlin -
crossed it. There was siding ''nam
for some lniutlieds of loaded anil
empty ears. Connected with it was
all the cosily and extensive planl for
sorting and cleaning the coal, con*
slstlng ot' elevators, belts, hoppers,
etc. All ibis is completely destroy
ed, and even if tlio lumber pan ol
ihe struct tiro can be replaced and
temporary arrangements made fm
loading, il will lake at least six
months to procure duplicates ol   the

set   tip.
Unfortunately this tlnees not i iver
cover the fid; extent ol the disaster.
The splendid power house containing
lhc dynamos whicli furnished all the
power lo operate tbe hauling ainUut-
ling nf the coal, the lighting ol Ihjo
mines and the pumping oi Water i.,.iu
lowei' workings lifts fallen a victim lo
the names. Except for the work ol
repairing the damage, this will nnl ,-
tunately mean the almost entire !*'.s-
ing of Coal Creek mines until the new
tipple akd power bouse can he ion-
structed. Fortunately tho trade can
be supplied from the Michel nud Mui-
risscy mines, and it is the Intent! m
of the company lo find wmk for Ihe
Coal Creek miners at   those points.
After their long series of-disasters,
this, one of the heaviest financially,
is greatly to be regret ted.
The total loss will exceed $300,001.,

Promoter of the Spokane
& International Railway.
Victoria, March 20.—The government caucus tonight again failed to
come to any decision relative to railway proposals. It looks as thojgh
the outcome would be that no rail-]
way policy will materialize this session. There is a strong contingent in
the government parly tlml will not
stand for liie concessions demanded
by tbe C. P. R., and as government
supporters the C, I*. R. will nut
yield, a deadlock appears inevitable. 1
While nothing is doing.-In railway
matters the lumbermen have gained
their point.   Tonight's caucus decided
The above map shows the different surveyi that have been made
of the Spokane & International railway. Where there are two it has
not been definitely decided as to the route, but where only one line
shows the survey is permencnt. Corps of surveyors are in the field now
making- the linal surveys, and h is expected that the work of constru-
tion will commence next month. This is the road that will give to
Cranbrook direct connection with Spokane and place this town on a
through line irom Minneapolis wai Sl. Paul and Spokane. Cranbrook
is surely coming to her own.

Charleston, West Virginia, March
20.—As the result ol the explosion in
the Rush Run & Red Ash Mines near
hero on Saturday night twenty-four
men are' dead. Ten of these were
killed in tho explosion on Saturday
and the other fourteen comprised a
rescuing party who entered tlie 'nine
on Sunday. These latter were killed
by a second explosion. The first explosion seemed to shake tho very
foundations of the mountains and tbe
Dash frum the two neighboring drills
lighted up the heavens for miles
around. The lirst explosion was caus
ed by a "naked" flame coming in contact with the gas. The flames leaped
from the drift mouth and set everything on fire within reach. The great
drum by which the loade cars arc run
Irom the drilt mouth down the incline
to the tipple was blown trom its
moorings and dowu the mountain side
six hundred leet, while the drum house
caught fire and was destroyed.

Grand Trunk has been treated royally by the Dominion. Now tbey are
alter the provinces. When tbey have
squeezed lhe provinces to a finish,
they v.ill drop down io every town
that they will build to or through
and after that comes the people lui

that we be given 15,000 acres pel

One windy day in Cranbrook r
long ago, as wo noticed tlie struggles
of llie ladies to keep their skirls in
hand and the delicious delight ol some
ol the men on the street, wc were reminded ol the following lines:
Old Satan stilled the naughty wind
To toss the lady's skirt,
But Uud was kind and the man   behind
Had his optics lilled wiih dirt."'
Amlnlster tn eastern Canada has
some positive views ou the question
ol bachelors, and in a recent discussion ot the question he relieved Lis
mind as follows: "Individualism is a
danger lo the slate. Bachelors and
clubmen are bandits, guerillas and
outcasts. 1 would be in lavor, if it
were possible lu do such things bj
law, of a special tax ou bachelors.
Tbey are abnormalities, and the abnormal I tics should pay lhe taxes.
President KoosevcU has expressed
the opinion that every man and Wile
should raise a huge family uf children. Much has been said along <bis
lun:, but it has been left to an Italian woman io break all previous records iu tbo maternity race. In the
course of 10 years uf wedlock she has
become the mother of «2 children.
This extraordinary attainment is
vouched lor by many creditable witnesses who testified to its truth in a
petition before the Italian government asking for tbe woman a yearly
pensiou of $370. OI these children 59
are boys and three are girls. Eleven
times in succession iu nine years the
prolific female gave birth to triplets,
three times four boys arrived at one
birth and once live boys aud a girl.
The other eleven were born singly tilt
but very close together,
llaveyou seen that new coat worn
by John Hutchison. The coat of
Biblical fame worn by Joseph, al-
though perhaps mote brilliant is not
in it by comparison, and the lar
famed neckties affected by Fred
Smyth, ol Moyie, sink into deep in
significance when arrayed along side
of this. No man but Hutch would
have nerve enough to don that coat
and walk down Baker street. It
talks iu seven different languages, and
the noise of the 0. P. R. boiler shop
is a Spanish serenade compared with
the noise of this garment. The checks
are the size of a Bank of Englaud
note, and it has the aroma of tho
river Thames. To all comment Hutch

Head the Story of any successful
man and maik il moial, luld thousands of years ago by Solomon: "Sees
thuii a man diligent in his business.'
He shall siaml before kings." This
proverb is well Illustrated by the ca-
leer ol the iudustnuiis Franklin, lor
lie stood before bu* kings and -lined
with tvvu.
The nation that is shortsighted
enuugh lu ignure lhe homes ol lhe
people builds ou a louiiitalioii of sand,
and the homes which divorce themselves from all interests ot social and
national import are inviting an inevitable thratldom for themselves and
their posterity. To the ideal nt-jlto
the home, pure, safe-guarded, happy
is its glory and its crown.
The sculptor who brings uut tbe
breathing statue from cold marble
the painter who warms the canvas
into a deathless glow of beauty, the
architect whu builds cathedrals und
bangs the world-like dome of St. Peter's in mid-air, is uot to be compar
ed, iu sanctity and worthiness, to tbe
bumble artist who, out of the poor
material afforded by the shilling,
charging, selfish world, creates the
secure Lden oi a home,
Education commences at the mother's knee, and* every word that is
spoken within, the beresay of the little 'children tends towards formation

ot education is to cherish and untold
the seed of Immortality already sown
within us, to develops to 'ihe fullest
extent the capacities of every kind
with which God who made us bas
endowed us.

And   pom    brother  lleiinir has swallowed a nail,

There's   scrubbing nnd sweeping  to
While mother is solving the problems

The children are crying for you.
The socks must be darned, the patches tacked on,
The betls must he turned balk   to
And    mother's    shirtwaist must be

Or she will have nothing to wear.
Father, dear father, come home with
me now;
it's lonely without any man;
And mother   will     grieve when   she

If things are   not fixed spick   and

Half the world seems lu have found
uncongenial occupation, as if the human race had been shaven up together and exchanged places in lhc operation. A servant girl is trying to
teach aud a natural teacher is tending store, tiood farmers are murdering the law while Choates and
Websters are running down larms,
eaeli tortured by the consciousness of
unfulfilled destiny. Hoys are pining
away iu factories who should bo
wrestling with Greek and Latin, and
hundreds are dialing beneath unnatural
loads in cullege who should he on the
farm ur before the mast. Artists
are spreading "daubs" on canvas who
should be whitewashing board fetie
llchiud counters stand clerks who bate
the yard stick and neglect their Work
tu dream of other occupations. A
good shoemaker writes a lew versos
tor the village paper, his Iriends cai
him a poet, and the last, with whieh
hu is familiar, is abandoned for 1
pen which he uses awkwardly. Other
s-hoeniukers arc cobbling in congress,
while statesmen are pounding shoe
lasts. Laymen are murdering .
minis while Beccbera ind Whltelields
are failing as merchants, and people
are wondering what can be the cause
ol empty pews. A boy who is alway
making something with tools is railroaded through the university and
started on the road to Inferiority in
one oi ihe three honornhlo professions. Heal surgeons ale I..iiiilhu.' tht

San Bernardino, Cai., March 17.—
Calvin Baker, former owner of lumbei' mills on San Bernardino mountains) lliis ir.dinihg discovered particles of placer gold in a gutter on the
west side of E street. The news spread
like wildfire and soon the entire west
side of the street for blocks'Vas lined
with eager gold hunters, 'merchants
and professional men. forsaking their
duties to join in the search:
Before noon fully 300 people were
on their knees industriously'" picking
away in the mud and gravel between
tbe stones ol the street, sonic of them
collecting as high as $3 worth of gold
It is thought the precious particles
were brought to town In gravel hauled Irom Lylle creek for use in the
construction of a new building near
where most of the gold was found.
Lytic creek has long been known as
rich iu placer gold.
