75 was en eventful year in stocks.
New enterprises came to the front
graspLig tie public vitals like the
arms of a devil-fish and the great finan
cial "lnaelstrom" on California street
boiled and seethed vrith unusual fury,
swallowing many and many a private'
fortune. The f olloTving year vre were
in Oakland, and walking one afternoon
on 2i"inth street with a friend, Alex
M , -we met a seedy looking man
of about fifty. There was nothing par
ticularly striking about the face to an
old Californian, nothing about the ap
parel strangely uncommon, and yet the
man attracted attention. The face,
betokening a world of trouble, was one
such as hovered round the gambling
tables in the early days, and plainly
stamped with the iron brand of ill
luck and misfortune. Its lines were
deeply cut; the hollow eyes looked out
on the world in a nervous piercing
kind of way, but tho hardly compress
ed lips indicated that there wero burn
ing thoughts within and the 'mind far
from the passing events of the moment.
"There," quietly remarked our friend,
as we turned to take a .second look, "is
a victim of stocks, and there is not a
little romance in his career." Light
ing fresh cigars wc sauntered on and
soon learned a history familiar to only
a few of Oakland's people.
He had come from the mountains of
Nevada county, where by industry and
economy he had amassed a fortune of
about $75,000 in the dairy business.
The old man was tired and needed
rest. The eld woman wanted to sec
the world, and wealth demanded that
tho children should enjoy nil its advan
taqes. At first tlie -cU LJa.i was care
fill. Avoiding olaeicus sharpers, fear
ing glittering bubbles and applying the

however, was uiiderJ.a'clguf and dissat
isfied. She plead tfith the old man for
more tllsjil-j' and more exciting cn
tu'rep, but the old min held the purse
siring the tighter. Wealth wa inex
orable, determined, .he sent envy to
poison the car of the eld woman and
nvy succeeded only too wclL Fresh
and vigorous awault3 wore made en
the old man. Ic i as "nothing," the
uld woman pleaded, "that Charley,
who everybody said was fit for a 'pcr
fessiou,' and bound to go to the legis
lator sometime," was quietly learning
a legitimate business in the city.
"Charley was just a3 good as Jones'
boy, and Jonea' boy drove his fast
horse." It was insufficient that "Car--rie,
poor thing," and the old woman
wiped her eyes with the dusting rag,
was enjoying the advantages of "Mills'
Cemetery." "Carrie must have a pi
anner and a new silk and go into soci
ety." But the old man was inflexible
till his wife played her trump card.
"No use a talkin" she cried indignant
ly, "about money being scarce; look at
Jones and Miller and all their neigh
bors; they bought interests in the
Ophir and Virginny and other good
mines in Montgomery street, and the
ground must be rich for they never
worked any and had lots of money.
The old man explained tho nature of
their mining transactions, but the
voice of his spouse grew only the high
er. "John," she yelled, "you was the
smartest man in Nevady county and
my butter was tho yallerest and the
best, and you allers out-traded every
body, and if you can't buy mines and
make money like other folks do you
had better go to peddliu butter agin."
Thus taunted, the old man gave way
and nmde a small but successful deal
hi "Ophir." He was" perfectly delights
fcd "with tho old woman's sagacity and
made a venture in "Overman." The
old man had faith in "Overman'
which was stead'ly rising, and his
faith was soon rewarded with a clean
up of . over six thousand dollars.
Things changed now. The thrift and
steady habits of the mountains were
swallowed up by the follies of the me
tropolis; John drovc-his fast nag at the
sacrifice of his employer's interests,
and Carrie, taken from the Seminary,
was submitted to the hands of a fash
ionable dress maker and f airly launch
ed, into society. The old man, aston
ished at his previous stupidity,- was
now a constant habitue of California
street. He became familiar with
words that were before strange and un
meaning; he knew tho value and im
port of "margins" and "shorts;" un
derstood thoroughly ths relative posi
tion of "bulls" and "bearf and still
venturing continued to wiaL Not that
he escaped an occasional Tob from an
angry "bull" or a scratch from a sullen
"bear," familiarity with danger only
bred contempt for it and he played
higher and higher until his infatuation
was compbte. Ophir was riung again,
and he Ts-invested, selling at a slight
profit. Upward and stiJf rehrr went
the stock, and the olcTman &s&nfjiiBi
mistake, invested heavily at its highest
figure. Consolidated Virginia had
made more fortunes than any stock on
the market, ic was still a favorite and
sure investment, and the oli man wild
ly staked hi3 remaining means on it
Meanwhile, matters were changed in
the humble household. Tho old man
had prayed, like the Persian king, that
hi3 touch might transform all things to
goldj and money had flowed in so pro
fusely that the heart of his wife was
crystalizing into bullion. Charley
drove his team now, associating with
tho young bloods'of the. city,. playing a
littlo with stocks, understanding the
mysteries of faro, and beginning to ap
preciate the dangerous pleasures of tho
sample room. Mere neophytes of
fashion, the females of the family sub
mitted tamely to its tyranny. Festivi
ty and lavish extravagance ruled the
hour and it was soon apparent from
tho hollow checks that Carrie, only a
delicate exotic from tho mountains,
was fast withering in a strange and
impure atmosphere, and tho mother
alone was happy.
There was a quiet stagnation before
the terrible financial tornado that
swept av-ay the earnings of so many
that year; only a hushed and easy lull,
not recogniz3d as a precursor but at
tributed to ether causes. Breaking
with an unforeseen suddenness, it
burst upon the Bay city carrying away
jritirs swecvinj way fortunes.
graph, produced the wildnst excitement.
Our cM friend rushed in terror to Cal
ifornia street. Pushing his feeble
frame with the strength of dosperation
among the maddehed and surging
crowd of brokers and speculators he
learned that Ophir had been melted
away like a reef of sand before a Ne
vada cloud burst that Consolidated
Virginia, to him aprospective moun
tain of silver, had crumbled into dust
and loft him almost a beggar. Dis
mayed, maddened, desperate, remorse
ful, the old man crossed the bay to his
Oakland home but the crudest blow
was yet to come. Confronting his
wife with tho unpleasant news, he was
received with a storm of reproach and
invective; upbraided for being so fool
ish as to invest at a dangerous time,
and for lacking wisdom and foresight;
and was finally driven like an outcast
from the home his industry had reared
and his prudence had saved from the
wreck. This was the crowning trial.
Tho warm love of maidenhood that had
made the old man's youth happy had
been turned into hatred. The steady
affection of the matron that had
strengthened and sustained his man
hood even the love of his children
was absorbed by tho passionate desire
for display; turned into selfishness by
the contact with fashionable folly.
For days and weeks and months the
old man wandered, frequently about
his old haunts, but tho pitiless waves
never returned a fragment of his for
tune, and tho only concession over
made by his family was the permission
to return on payment of his board.
The son is only a young man "about
town" whilo Carrie, so brilliant, so full
of promise is fading away among .the
demi-monde of the great city. Strip
ped of their romantic surroundings,
tho. bare facta in this sketch will be
recognized as a history that might- be
told, only too often, and it will bo rec
ognized by many as a sad and true
history of a broken and ruined house
hold. Capt. Goodall, an old pioneer of this
county, who used to be in good circum
stances in early days, is now old and
crippled, making his home at our Coun
ty Hospital as one of the indigent
poor. He served in the war against
the Mod ocs, and was also Gen. Col ton's
second in a duel to be fought with Dr.
Cabaniss across- the Oregon line, but
which was settled by the intervention
of the attending surgeon selected by
both Eidee. "Yreka Journal."
THE BOniK 3II.VC OTVSEK5 rKOBABLY
Geo. A. Nourso writes to tho "Bul
letin" on the subject of the Bodie land
titles. It has been he says, many
years a question in the land offices and
courts whether the United States act
granting tho lGth and 36th section
of each township to tha State for
school purpose, would hold good when
,thoso sections included mineral lands.
In Higgins vs. Houghton Vce Supreme
Court of California during tho April
term of 1864 held emphatically that
tho lGth and 3Gth sections went to the
State under any circumstances, what
ever their character. The case of
Sherman vs. -Surch has been cited as
affirming this decision. That is a mis
take, for in this case the land in dis
pute was agricultural, "not mineral.'
Our Legislature has claimed, in accor
dance with the Higgins and Houghton
deeision, in the " act regulating the
sale of mineral lands belonging to the
State." approved March 28, 1874.
The case most in point is thus stated
by Mr. Nourse.
This question came up in tho United
States Land Office, in the matter of
the application of the "Keystone" and
other mining corporations for patents
fronTtho United States for their mines
and mining claims. These were in
Amador county, on a section 36.
One Henry Casey had applied to
purchase from the Stato the half of
section 30, which embraced these mines,
and tho State of Calfornia, through him
and his counsel, opposed the issue of
patents to tho mining companies on
the giound that the title of tho whole
section had already vested in the State
of California by the school land grant
of all sections 16 and 36. No means
wero left unemployed to impress this
view upon the United States land offi
cers. nics, J. claimed, among otherjjfjju
ineral I.tlsrrnrTnT. 1 r. and 36,
not pass by virtue of that grant,
but remain tho property of the United
States. After a contest of great bit
terness the decisions of the Land De
partment of the United States, sustain
ed this view.
The United States Register and Re
ceiver at Sacramento, the Commission
er of tho General Land Office of
the United States, and finally, tho
Secretary of the Interior, sustained the
claims of the mining corporations, after
full and elaborate aigument at each
stage of tho proceedings, adopting this
view of the operation of the school
After the mining companies had
obtained their United States patents, the
grantee of Gary D. "W. Gillets, armed
with a State patent for tho half section,
brought suit against the "Keystone
Con. M. Co.," inthoTwelth District
Court, for the posession of their mine,
which had been in possession of them
selves and grantees for over 20 years.
Tho action was transferred to the
United States Circuit Court (the plain
tiff being a citizen of New York), and
was tried during the past year beforo
the Hon. Lorenzo Sawyer, Judge of
that court, without a jury. It was
elaborately argued in printed briefs,
and considered by Judge Sawyer with
even more than his usual thoroughness
-the amount of stake being very large.
Ho rendered an oral opinion thorough
ly discussing the matter, and, as one of
the grounds of Ms decisions in favor
of tho Keystone Co.. he held that the
school land grant of March 3d, 1S53,
was not intended to embrace, and does
not embrace any sections 16 or 36
which are mineral lands.
As yet there has been no writ of er
ror sued out in this case. If it -shall
go to tho Supreme Court of tho Unit
ed, States we shall probably have a final
decision of this mineral land question.
I cannot doubt for a moment that
Judge Sawyer's decision will be sus
tained. Tho irradiation of countenance ex
hibited by a bridegroom at tho mo
ment he leads his chosen one before the
altar is certainly very beautiful; but,
by way of comparison, did you ever ob
serve the face of a man who, taking
down his winter coat and shaking out
the moths, dives casually into ono of the
pockets and bringing up "a forgotten

Recess was taken, after which the Court

and restoratives were administered, so
that at 2-15 the trial was resumed. C.
R. Swift of San Francisco, counsel for
tho Tullis heirs, commenced tho argu

hour. He was followed by J. N. Young
for the defense, who spoke two hours.
Recess was then taken, At the even
ing session tho District Attorney con
cluded his argument at 9:30 o'clock.
Ho was followed by Creed Haymond,
who made an eloquent appeal for tho
mercy and sympathy of jurors, which
lasted two hours. The argument of
counsel for the prosecution lasted till
after midnight, when Judge Denson
delivered his charge, which reviewed
in tho usual manner the questions of
reasonable doubt, circumstantial evi
dence, tho plea of insanity, etc. Tho
jury retired, and at 1:25, after a half-
hour's consultation, returned a verdict
of guilty of murder in tho first degree.
Dye was then remanded to the custody
of the Sheriff and directed to appear

Senator Grover, of Oregon, has not
particularly distinguished himself dur
ing his political career; indeed, ho is
never heard of except when he gets in
to somo disreputable scrape or other;
but his disreputable scrapes are gener
ally frequent enough to save him from
prolonged obscurity. First, ho was
mixed up with Tilden and Patrick in
the shameful attempt to reverse tho
choice of tho people of Oregon for pres
ident; then ho was ground through a
senate investigating committee on a
charge of buying his seat; and now a
legislative committee pillories him for
plundering a variety of state funds

he is getting plenty of it. St. Paul

a company to build a narrow gauge rail
road from Jacksonville to Ellensburg,

THE OU) EJIJIA JIINC CISC
CniCAGO, Jan. 11. Judge Moore is
engaged in hearing a suit growing out
of the once notorious Emma mine!. Tho
camplaint is by F. A. Bragg, who
claims one-thirtieth of tho profits of tho
mine between 1868 and 1870, and a
like share of the amount for which tha
mine was sold to the English company.
It seems that m 186S an association
was started here, consisting of F. A.
Braccf, James Smith, Tarhes-f;t
Tarleton Jones, tor the purpose of mak
ing a speculation in silver mining.
Smith was furnished with money and
sent out, and after an unsuccessful trip
he struck tho Emma mino and, it
is claimed, bought a one-sixth interest,
which ho was to divide equally with
his four parteners, but when he found
tho mino was a paying venture he for
got his agreement He died in 1872y
after reaping 1,000,000 profits, most
of which ho spent. The mine was sold
in 1871 to alt English company for 5,-
000,000, with which sale the public is
familiar. Bragg claims a fifth of this
ono sixth interest, both in the immense)
profits and the amount ef sale. Tha
caso was begun three or four years ago,
and a very large amount of testimony
has been taken. Steelo and Jones' and
the representatives of Smith are mado

S. vs. W. C. Griswold, on motion for
a new trial, Judgo Dcady this morn
ing overruled tho motion. "Wo learn
that Mr. Griswold, to releaso his sur e
ties, gavo himself up to tho marshal,
he having been put tinder arrest at tho
commencement of tho trial and having"
given bonds with A. Bush and J. F
Miller as sureties. Tho marshal took
tho receipt of Sheriff. Ben Norden for
the defendant who was in the Portland'
jail at last accounts but will no boubt
have the privilege of tho jail limits,
which included 500 acres, so he will
have breathing room. Under tho U
S. law he will probably havo to remain
under nominal durances for 30 days,
when ho can make oath to his inability
to pay the judgment of S35,000 ren
dered against him and that will release
his sureties. This presents the case as
tho facts and probabilities reach us.

pay the judgment, or at least Dowell's
