GOLD SEEMS WITHOUT END.
ALL OF $34,000 HAS BEEN TAKEN
SUGKER GREEK FIND.
Grants P-ss, Or., June 28 Tin. ugh it has been
nearU three weeks since work was begun in digging
out the gold from the Sucker Creek tiud, there is yet
no indication of the rich proposition "pinching" soon.
A party of miners came into the Pass yesterda' from
the strike, and report that since the first, stewpau of
gold was taken out, seven eandleboxes have been
filled with slabs of metal and fabulously rich quartz.
It is now estimated that 54,000 has been taken out.
. One monster piece, as large as a stick of stove
wood, and containing nearly $1500, will be sent to the
St. Louis Fair and placed on exhibit as a sample of
what Oregon can produce in the metal line.
Mr. Banks, a member of the United States Geo
logical Survey, who ha? made the strike and Sucker
Creek district a visit, and gave the whole a thorough
examination, states that he has definitely traced the
ledge 2200 feet from the point at. which it is being
worked. He is confident the veiu is this long, and it
may prove even longer.
Some excellent prospects have been found on the
adjoining claims, ami there is no doubt that uther dis
coveries wi'l be made dis ov res that will rival the
famous original one, ihz o:ie f mud by Accident.
