EXCITEMENT CAUSED-MANV STAKE CLAIMS IN THAT DISTRICT. Kicnlng Telgriini. Grants Pass.Or. Junejo Hraped with gold, many of the pieces being great slabs us large as n man's 1 hand, a stewpan has been brought recent marvelous strike on bucker Creek, Josephine County, pear the mining camp of Holland, some 40 miles south ol tuts city. The gold t in the pan amounts to about $5500, nnii is out a part ot tue precious contents of the glory-hole stumbled on by accident Though gold is a common sight in Grant's Pass, and can be seen here every day in bricks and bars and nuggets, this particular stew made in Josephine County for years The discovery is a phenomenal one. It was nothing more nor less than the finding of a buried treas urea heap of pure gold bunched in a pile and a little dirt thrown over it. Prom a shallow cut but two or three feet wide and six feet in letiL'tb the stewnnn mat flllrd How much larger the pocket may be, and to what it may lead, can nnlv I siirmUptl. There Is yet considerable cold thickly distributed in the loose dirt at cither eud of the shallow cut, and a thin stringer leads down from the bottom and may develop into a wide and permanent ledge. Mr. 1 Briggs and his boys are confident the gold taken from the surface is I but a small part of the entire I treasuro. They declare they have I traced a well-defined ledge from the j pocket, ami believe a mine will be I developed from the stringer. William Banks, a Calilornia mm iB man, who was in the district at the time of the discovery, nnd who made' the pocket a visit, said yes terday that from his observations 'e is of the opinion the strike will 1 ue auoiuer sucu una as was me famous Fowler pocket, 011 Steam boat, from which nearly $500,000 in gold was removed. The two practically belong to the same district, as Sucker Creek and Steam- .boat head on the same divide, one "owing west into the Illinois, and the other cast into the Applegate, The discovery has caused a geti' eral stempede into the district, and nearly a score of claims have been stoked about the pocket. Seven or eight claims were located before the news of the find were made public. The district is difficult to enter, as i' 's heavily timbered, with deuce uuuergrowiii mat is we i-nigu im penetrable. A good wagon road Icadc as far as Holland. In their eagerness to reach the of new Kldorado, one party that 011 1 ' fitted in the Pass left here Saturday If night for Sucker Creek, intent on getting on the ground early Sunday j morning. Other parlies have left for the district from various points in Southern Oregon, and in the caravan of goldscckcrs is A. L. Morris, formerly editor of The Telegram. Mr. Morris is one of a 1 party from Gold Hill. A number of prospectors that were searching I ll a tr tttf f FAfstr (Ufa . the Canyon Creek district, where the telluridc ledges were found, have temporarily abandoned the hunt for tcllurides and have joined the stampede for Sucker Creek, Many years ago a large number of unfortunates who tramped this stream in search of gold and came out "busted" were branded "suckers" hence the name of the creek Hut it is quite evident that much treasurer was overlooked by the old-timers, and the later-day gold-hunters.
