Jacob Scbmitt, a Jackson couuty
pioneer, says that the fabulous atlike
made by the Briggs family on Socket
creek in Southern Oregon is another
case of a lost bonanza found, and
avers mat the wonderful ledge was
flrBt discovered in 1855. Mr. Schmitt
has for many years been a resident
of Jacksonville, the old' at, and in i'f
day, the richest mining camp in Ore
gon. Ho is a cooper by trade, but in
his old age he follows horticulture
and carpentering in their respi ctive
seasons, aud between times be goes
prospecting. This has been his habit
for yews, and he has in hia career met
nearly all the mining men of note iu
the sta'e. This is his story of the
first Sucker creek strike :
"When the Indian troubles of 18.55
began, two men, named Belleville and
Miller, who we-e coming to join the
Indian fighters, crossed a range of
mountains aboot 40 miles southeast of
Jacksonville, aud there struck a ledge
from which they took some quartz
that waa nearly pure gold. Each man
carried away a small iece, intending
to go b.iek after tho Indian war was
over and work the mine. On their
way next day they got lost and after
ward they never wero able to re-lo
cate the place. Belleville waa the
only man who camo Into Jacksonville
with hia specimen. It was about a
quarter of a pound. Ho got $100 for
it. He told nm, in describing the
place, thut on the top of a high moun
tain near the quartz vein, they conld
see the ocean. This is exactly the
description given of thu Briggs ledge
.ind it is tho only pluce in that
district where the ocean can be seen.
Bellevillo spent tho remainder of bis
life aud all the money he could earn
trying to relocate tho lodge, but died
without finding it. Miller also is
dead. But their ledge has at last
been found accidentally by a boy out
nuiuiiig, who pronahiy never even
heard of Belleville or Miller.

R.inaldo a Winner.
G raffle. Baber returned last week
from Lakeview where he won laurels
with Rinaldo, the speedy runner. In
regard to the races, the Lakeview
Herald saya: "Rinaldo, owned by
Baber, won every ra- e iu which he
was entered and Mr. Baber walked
off with most of the purses. The
races were all fair and it is conceded
by all that the fastest horse took the
money in each race."
Mr. Baber brought back a handsome
team of heavy iron gray's which he is
uow breaking to harness. Ho also
brought a pacer for Geo. Good.
Rinaldo waa left at Lakeview in
training and will be entered at Susau
