HISTORY IS OVERLOOKED
First Cold Discovered on Pacific
Coast Was Found in Oregon.
The following article oil the famous
Blue. Bucket" mine appeared iu Sun
day's Oregon inn :
History records the fact ttmt gold
was first discovered oil the Pacific
Coast liy Joint Marshall, at Sutter's
mill, in what is now El Dorado
County, California, iu 1MIS.
As a matter of fuct gold was found
by au immigrant train on the old
Stove Mock's Cut-Off, in Crook or
Harney couuty in Eastern Oregon,
between the Malheur aud Deschutes
rivers in 1845. This fact can be ret suf
cieutly attested by living witnesses.
The Native Sous and Daughters of
Orcgou should see to it that such is
done in honor to thuir state.
Before touching upon tho story of
hi lost Blue Bucket diggings, I wish
to remark that I am aware that any
man, woman or child, Ucrgo, Indian
or Chinese who attempts to particu
larize either as - to the supposed
location of this lost iniuo, or as to tho
quantity of gold will riso a storm of
protest and contest, such as no man
would desire. Personally tho writer
has investigated at loist two sooro of
versions of both, and no two of thorn
agree in detail, hut all corresjiond in
the essential fact, that gold was ac
In giving my version of tho Hlue
Iluckot diggings, as they aro familiar
ly culled, I will explain how it tomes
to mo aud by whom. My grandfather
and his family were in tho train that
broke tho trail afterward known as
Mock's Cut-OIT. My father was at
t';a time a boj 14 years of age. Ho
told ran the full particulars in a
different country, having permanently
removed from Oregin in lWii). It was
not tho traiu lie whs in that found the
gold, but one following them, and ho
repeated to mo from memory, the
story as told nt tho time, being un
mixed with versions of modern years.
The traiu encamped on a small
stream somewhat along tho rim of the
Harney Basin, there being hills to
tho northward and tho level
stretch of tho desert to tho south. A
freshet hud sluiced out the gulch,
leaving the bed rock bare. A ludv
passing over this bare bed rock,
picked op some pieces of yellow metal
aud eatno into camp, carrying it iu
her apron, and called attention to it.
No one seemed to know what it was,
anil when she was asked how much
of the molnl she could havo picked np
if she wished, she pointed to a wood
en vater bucket painted tilno and
replied she thought alio could havo
picked up that bucket full in a little
while; hcuoo the name given this
lost mine, "tho Blue Bucket dig
The suggestion being uiadu by some
that it might bo gold brought tho
wise man to tho foro. Ho is over with
ns, and it Is upon these special occa
sions that lie is wont to exhibit his
maivolous wisdom. Ho explained
that gold mid silver wore the only
metals that had a natural ring to
them, (ho had evidently forgotten that
it was the alloy iu coin that gave it
its "ring.") Ho forthwith hammered
a piece out Mat upon the wagon tire
and teste I it for tho ring. As it would
not ring ho promptly pronnonnced it
hr'iss ; (ho had evidently also forgot
ten that brass was not a specific
metal, but a eoiiijiosition ) hence some
times called tho Wagon Tire diggings.
Some of this gold found its wuy in
to the Willame' to valley, being pro
served as rurios, but it was not until
after the discovery of gold in Califor
nia that those tsopln know what they
had fruud and lost ujion tho old im
The old Blue Bucket has uot been

sion that Canyon City was the place
is undoubtedly i rrniicon i. After a
js-rsouiil examination of the country,
I am confident upon this sjmt.
Another error unido by theso old
ph liters, and it is still extant, is the
confounding of Crooked Uiver with
tho John Day Kiver. They struck
Crooked River mar 1'rinevillo and
mistook it for tho John Day. They
did not touch tho John Day, leaving
it to the north ami east ward of their
route. JOHN. L. MUtiS.

THANKSGIVING DAY IS SET
President Issues Proclamation Fix

The president Saturday issued his
annual Thanksgiving proclamation iu
the following terms :
By the president of tho Uuited
States of America A proclamation :
"The season is at hand when, ac
cording to tho customs of our people,
it fulls upon tho president to appoint
a day of praise aud thanksgiving to
God. During the last year, the Lord
has dealt bountifully with us, giving
us peace at home aud abroad, and the
chance for our citizens to work for
their welfare unhindered by war,
famine or plague. It behooves ns not
ouly to rejoice greatly because of
wh it has been given us, but to ac
cept it with a solemn sense of rcsioti
sibility, realizing that under heaven
it rests with ourselves to show that
we are worthy to use aright what has
thus been eutrusted to our care.
"In no other place, aud at no other
time, lins tho experiment of govern
ment of tho people, by tho pooplo aud
for the peole been tried ou so vast a
scale as hero in our own country in
the opening years of the 20th century.
Failure would not ouly be a dreadful
thing for as, but a dreadful thing for
all mankind, because it would mean a
loss of hoi 'or all who believe in the
power and tho righteousness of liberty.
"Therefore, iu thanking Ood for
tho mercies extended to us iu the
past, we beseech Him that Ho may
not withheld them iu tho future, aud
our hearts may bo u roused to war
steadfastly for good aud against nil
forces of evil, public and private.
Wo pray for streugtli and light, so
that in the coming yoars we may,
with cleanliness, fearlessness aud
wisdom, do our allotted work on earth
in such manner as to show that we
aro not altogether unworthy of the
blessing we havo received.
"Now, therefore, I, Theodore
Uoosovolt, president of the United
Statin, do hereby designate as a (lay of
general thanksgiving, Thursday, the
2lith of the coming November, and do
recommend that througout tho laud,
people cease from their wonted occu
pations, aud iu their several homes
and plaooa of worship, render thanks

MAIL ANDBAGGAGE BURNED
Wreck on the Southern Pacific
, Near Tehama.
A fireman killed and a mail clerk
probably fatally wounded was the re
sult of what might have been a most
disastrous wreck on the Oregon ex
press, two miles south of Tehama,
early Sunday morning.
Had it not been for the heroic act
ion of Engineer Boucher Iu sticking
to his post of duty in his wrecked
engine iu the faco of almost certafti
death, it is highly prohablo that etsry
oar in the first section of tho train
would have plunged through a burn
ing trestle into ono of tho many
brandies of the Sacramento river.
The first section of train No. 1(1 was
slightly behind timo leaving Marys
vllle, and Boucher was making extra
spoed on that account. Beside several
heavily loaded Pullmans aud the
diner, tliero was a mail car and tho
entire outfit of tho "Florodora" Com
pany. This consisted of two sloers
and two baggage cars, loaded with
scenery ami trunks. Just as the en
gine rounded a light curve at Sesma,
Boucher saw tlunes licking up the
bridge ahead of him. Ho applied the
air and yelled to the fireman, Charles
Morris, to stick to the engine.
Tho groat machine left the track
and plowed over the trestle on the
ties. Morris jumped, and the tender
followed him to the river bottom,
crushing the life from him.
The mail car and Clerks Bryno and
Southwortli wo'Jt through next, fol
lowed by an empty day coach and a
ear of scenery. Two members of the
opera company rescued tho mail clerks
from the flames, while the engineer
and other passengers pulled out tho
mangled remains of Morris.
Tho prompt work of Boucher while
sticking to his post undoubtedly
saved tho theatre and tourist sleepers
from going into tho seething mass of
names. The theatre pooplu rescued a
'arload of baggage, but their scenery
was completely dostroyed.
Boucher was immediately presented
with $100 by grateful passengers, and
a subsequent collection raised tho
wholo purse to 100, part of which
will go to aid Southworth, the in
Tho remaining cars of tho train
wore scut around by way of Woodland,
starting for Portland 1H hours late,
Tho accident was caused by a Are
underneath tho trestle, burning away
the snpHirts. The origin of tho tie is
as yet undetermined.
About 100 feet of the trestle was
burned, and wreckage of all kinds is
strowu along ths trestle for a distance
of a quarter of a mile.
It is expected several days will
ehipso before travel can be resumed
ou tho east side of the river.
