Outlaw Mined It.
It has ht on found that tho original
miner and man who dug tho myster
ious tunnels of a "Joist mine" recently
iHrx-overed on Grave creek, Southern
Ori-gun, was Tom Hast, in wiio'e honor
torn hast crock, ono of the tributaries
of Grave creek, was numed. lie was a
notorious charade during the early
days, and gained a bad reputation on
uctount of the number of Indians and
China men 1m killed. It Is evident the
tunnels and development of tho mine
were contented purpooely by Fast, and
thu mysterious part of the affair Is bow
ho could have removed so much dirt
and done so great an amount of work
without being dlsroveroJ.
