T hat S ilver M ud .—Under the
caption of “How the Portlanders were
Duped,” the San Francisco Bulletin of
the 16th has tho following : “The
trap set by the pseudo discoverers of
tho silver mud deposits at Mud
Springs, Wasco county, Oregon, which
was successfully sjirung by Prof. Price
without victimizing any one in this
city, captured more than one unsus
pecting gudgeon in Portland. It ap
pears that the men who concocted the
swindle exhibited the salted mud in
the Webfoot city, and interested par
ties had it assayed there, the result be
ing in every case in the thousands.
The Portlaud assayen never suspected
anything wrong, and the discovery
was regarded as genuine. A report of
the alleged discovery soon obtained
currency, and quite au excitement fol
lowed, manifesting itself in a very per
ceptible rush to Mud Springs, Wasco
county. For a few days the Portlaud
merchants reaped quite a harvest in
furnishing outfits for the new silver
diggings. A company was also hur
riedly formed by Portland capitalists,
with a capital stock of $506,000, and
preparations were in progress for work
ing the wonderful deposit of silver-
mud on a gigantic scale, when the
news reached there that the bubble
had beeu probed in this city. The
first intimation the Portlanders re
ceived of this unqualified fraud was
through the expose published in the
columns of the Bulletin. The men
wiio were at the bottom of the swindle
prepared themselves for the storm
which they instinctively felt coming,
by setting forth that they believed
that they had been deceived by the
assayers in Portland, whom they ac
cused of making false returns in the
interests of the merchants of that city.
It is believed that these men lined their
pockets well with the money of those
whom they persuaded to lake stock
in the swindle in Portlaud. Had the
fraud not been promptly exposed, it is
very likely that some of the moneyed
men of this city would have beeu sim
