KERNVILL.E, Jan. 3.—Work of a development and prospecting nature Is now under way on the Goldbug and tho .Goldbug Extension claims, located on the Bandy place, 3 miles west of Kernvllle. These daims are the properties of Clarence J. Pascoe, S. J. Rhymes, Earl Pascoe and Cecil Pascoe. The section (n which the prospects are located IIHH, in the past, produced much gold. The present operators have dlscbv- ered several small ore veins, little stringers?, that run into tho hundreds of dollars In gold values per ton. These small fingers of limited ore volume may be tho lead, it Is hoped by the operators, to guide them to larger bodies of milling value. Pay ore, so far recovered, can bo crushed and panned and tests made without the necessity of horning. Air is free gold. t "POT-0-GdD" of months, this attention to the K33HN CANYON, Jan. 3.—Rains of last month brought that well-known "pot-o-gold" and much rejoicing to owners of the Homestako mine, in this district. A drift was being driven along the vein, when tons of rock—which had been loosened by the heavy rains— ! slid down the mountainside, caving In | the portal of the tunnel and exposing a parallel vein about four feet wide. Samples taken from the new vein assayed $12 a ton. ! This new vein, it is believed, Is a i continuation of'the Edison vein. The j old lidtson mine has been In operation j sinc« 1905,. but up to that time, had produced approximately $50,005 In gold. O FFICIALS of the Oil Producers Bales Agency of California haVo outlined a policy program for 1033, which calls for additional efforts to halt the Increase of taxation upon the citizens of California, nnd deals particularly with problems Involving the petroleum Industry. Included In the agenda formulated » for the agency In 1988 were: 1. Opposition to any Increase In taxation. 2. Opposition to any diversion of the gasoline tax funds for any purpose other than that having to, do with highways In the state of California. Favor for reduction In state expenditures as essential to welfare of the *state. . 4. Favor for reduction In the state gasoline tax. 5. Favor for a decrease In taxa-^ tlon generally and particular!^ against the oil Industry. , Agency officials have, petitioned Governor James Rolph, Jr., to consider tho use of asphaltlc bases In construction of state highways In order that the production of heavy crude oil-might be utilized. In tho petition, the agency pointed out: "For a number agency has given construction and maintenance of highways In California, and Ve have been at a loss to understand the apparent disposition In state work to favor Portland-cement concrete over as- phaltlc-cement concrete for highway construction. "The oil Industry Is the greatest natural resource Industry in the state. It pays a huge amount of taxes annually for state, county and munlcl-' pal maintenance. In addition, at HH own expense, It collects the motor fuel tax that, provides the bulk of the revenue for highway construction, maintenance and Improvement," The agency offered two creditable Ideas for the governor's consideration. They were: i 1. The direction of official attention to a necessary, sound, and positive conservation of tax receipts, either In the' form of an actual saving, or In more equitable distribution. 2. A frankly honest and justifiable suggestion that will lead to an Increased market for heavy crude potro- leum of an asphalt base that will Improve conditions in the districts In th« state producing that of oil, with the resultant benefits to all lines of business in those areas. Road construction engineers report that a difference In favor of asphaltlc- concrete of more than $3000 per mile Is shown by a cost comparison based upon sections of 20-foot, pavement, seven Inches thick at the center and nine Inches .thick at the edges, of tho two accepted types of heavy-duty paving materials, tho agency Informed the governor. SMALL DIMS ONLY j SALE REPORT RIVER PLACERS KEUNVII.,t,E, Jan. 3.—Placer mining along the Kern river continues to be the old standby as tho means of a little quick money. At this time there are no operations of any great magnitude, most of the work being done by one and ( two men outfits, taking all that they produce. One of the larger placer operations Is being conducted by W. A. Elsterman, who has leased the B. S. Bldwell property on the Kern river at Hobo Hot Springs. He is using- an extensive sluice box system and, It Is reported, has recovered some nice values. The placer miners In the district market their product with John L,. Hooper, at Hobo Hot; Springs, a licensed buyer of gold. « • • New Fishing Work at Discovery We'll Additional fishing difficulties have been encountered by the Standard OH Company at Its No. 6-29V,. section 29, 23-30 In the middle dome district of Kettlemtui Hills, tho project credited with "discovery" of the middle dome area. The 3-lnch drill pipe was recovered to C940 feet, but the _ fishing string froze at 6917 feet and" parted at 360 feet. Tho string was backed off to 1537 feet and fishing for remainder of the lino Is underway. Expect Completion of Rettleman Well Completion of Its No. 67-19J well on section 19, 21-17 In the north dopne district of Kettlema'n Hills, U onttol pated at a close date by the Standard Oil Company. The well has a total depth of 8841 feet. The 7-lnch oil string froze a 8114 feet. The hole was plugged t 8640 feet and the E-lnch string wo run and perforated from S043 feet to 8G36 feet. KERNVILLE, Jan.' 3.—Current re- jort has It of pending sale of the old King Solomon mine, at Havllah, to arge mining Interests. This old producer Is the. property of Stubblefleld and Uosa, expert mining men. Recently at Hobo Hot Springs, Stubblefleld expressed himself as heal- ant about selling the property, and ffered but little encouragement along hat line. The partners contemplate working he property themselves, and lately have taken out some s very high-grade ore which is being milled at the Edrelo mill. John L. Hooper, of Hobo Hot Springs, a dealer In raw gold, and one of the most expert of milling men In .he state, is in charge of milling opor-. atlon. The result will be viewed with much Interest by mining men as, at this time,, a revival of mining activity around Havllah Is dominant. *"*"* Pur man Starts New Job at McKittrick Thomas H.
