A Pioneer of Southern Oregon
Thinks the Ledge Found by Young
Briggs Is a Mine Found During the
Indian War of 1855, But Forgotten
and Lost Afterward One Man
Spent His Life und Fortune Trying

.. . I, Brani1 0(,R meeting, says
that the fabulous .strike made by tho
Briggs family on Sucker creek. In
bouthern Oregon. Is another case of
a lost bonanza found, and avers that
iuu Muiiueniu ledge was first dlseov
crcu in 1S55, savg
"as lor many years
been a resident of Jacksonville, the
u.ucsl anu m Its day the richest mln
g camp in Oregon. Ho Is a cooper
u umiu. mil in his old age ho fol
lows horticulture and carpentering In
meir respective seasons, and be
tween times be goes prospecting.
This lias been his linhlt for vonr
and bo has In his career met nearly
all the mining men of note in the
state. This is bis siory of the first
buckcr cieok strike:
'When the Indlnn trnnlilns nf 1SKR
Megan, two men named Belleville, nnd
Miller, who were coming to join the
Indian fighters, crossed a ranee of
jiiuuinnins auout in miles southeast
of Jacksonville, and thero struck a
icufcu 1 rum which tney tool: somo
qunrtz that was nearly pure gold.
Each man carried away n small
piece, Intending to go back after the
Indian war was over and work the
mine. On their way next day they got
lost and afterward they never were
able to ro-locate the place. Belleville
was the only man who came Into
Jacksonville with his specimen.
It was about a quarter of a pound.
He got ?100 for It. Ho told me, in de
scribing the place, that on tho top of
a high mountain near the quartz vein
the) could see the ocean."
This is exactly the description
trlvon of tho Briggs ledgo and It Is tho
only place In that district where tho
ocean can bo seen, .icllovllle spent
the remainder of his life and all tho
monov ho could earn trying to re
Innntn the ledge, but died without
findlnc it. Miller also Is dead.
Hu, their ledge has at last been
found accidentally by a farmer boy
out hunting, who probably nov.er oven
hnftrd nf Belleville or Miller.
The Urlgga have at present $65,000
In gold In tho bank at Grant's Pass,
and enough more In sight at tho ledgo
