Continued on Page 5 HAND CUT OFF Charles Lukedens Has Great Misfortune at Mitchell Mine A shocking accident occurred at the Mitchell mine near Pine Grove last Monday morning. Charles Lukedens was in charge of the saw mill recently installed at this mine. While operating the same on the morning in question he reached under the saw while it was in motion to clear away some bark. While so doing his right hand came in contact with the teeth, and in an instant the hand was cut off in a diagonal direction from the base of the thumb to the little finger. The blood spurted in a stream from the severed artery. Fellow employes realized the danger of death from hemorrhage unless prompt measures were adopted to staunch the flow of blood. Bandages were tied tightly around the arm below the shoulder, and in this way the blood was controlled in a great measure. The injured man was brought to Jackson as soon as possible. At the county hospital Drs Endicott and Gall at once decided that amputation of the hand was the proper thing, and the operation was performed at once, the hand being taken off at the wrist. The operation was entirely successful, and the patient is doing as well as could be expected. The victim is a married man, having a wife and one child dependent upon his earnings. He was industrious and steady, and the lamentable accident is deplored by the whole community, rendering him crippled for life. He is 30 years of age, a native of this county, and son of the late L Ludekens, for several years supervisor of the county representing township three. Jackson Boy Successful Charles E. Parker, son of F. W. Parker, who has been employed as cashier for Wells Fargo Company at Stockton, has been transferred to San Francisco by the company, and will be advanced to another position, the nature of which we are not ns yet able to learn. Young Farker was born in Jackson 22 years ago, and spent most of his youth here. As an employee of the company, which now employ him, his services were found to be commendable, and he was rapidly advanced from the lowest position to that of cashier in Stockton.

CITY ELECTION HAS BIG VOTE Barton and Lucot New City Trustees; Kelley Re-Elected . The city election of Jackson took place last Monday— the second election since incorporation. It was the most exciting contest since the city was organized, and the vote was by far the largest ever cast. A total of 419 votes being polled in the three precincts. Thi? would indicate tnat there are over 500 voters living within the city ' limits. About 450 were enrolled on the new great register, and it is estimated that about 100 more were on the old printed register, and were entitled to vote, although not having applied for registration this year. The unprecedented number of candidates was the magnet that drew the crowds to the polls, each candidate having his earnest and^ctive supporters. . The saloons were all closed'"*from the opening to the closing of the' polls. Everything passed off quietly. There was not a disturbance of any kind during the day, after tne result was made known early in the evening there was no cheering or demonstration on the streets. The outcome was largely forecast beforehand. The men supported by the saloon element won out, with one exception, namely Kelly for clerk. The following is the vote by precincts for the various candidates. It will be noticed that while there was but one candidate for treasurer on the ballot, nearly one half the voters ignored that office — they would not take the trouble to stamp, for in that square, as it was a sure thing anyway.

She bid in the mine and ranch for 312,500. This was a low rate much below its appraised valued. It was done for the purpose of facilitating the sale, and getting the matter fairly before competitive bidders, as it was well known that the price would he raised when the sale came before the court for confirmation. Saturday morning the prospective bidders were on hand, and the price was 'at once raised the necessary ten per cent. There were three bidders. A stranger named Johnson appeared as chief booster. No one outside of two or three who were on the inside, knew who he represened. It afterwards leaked out that he was sent up purposely to protect the ■ interests of the heirs, and run up the bidding to a sum they were willing to take for the property. R. 1. Kerr, ; clerk of the Kennedy mine, and C. L. Culbert, cashier of Bank of Amador county, were the other bidders, each believed to represent separate mining interests anxious to secure the property. The bidding was lively, the price being raised from $50 to $100 at a jump, until over $25,000 was reached. At this point the bidding was confined to Johnson and Kerr, and the latter became the, purchaser at the price of $29,975. The Continued on Page 8 Vaudeville Patrons Are "Stung Again" Patterson's Vaudeville Show played at Love's Hall in Jackson to a full house. There was a diversity of opinion expressed by the various persons who heard the entertainment, such as good, .stung, rotten, etc.. As far as we are informed, the troupe tried to amuse its audience with whiskered jokes, and such popular songs as Silver Threads Among the Gold. We could have given a more graphic account of the performance if we would have received our 'comps, ' but when the Press must spend a big 25 cents in order to get a write up, from every green show on the road- -well it just don't spend, and we get reliable information jnst the same, minus the misery of hearing it out. It is to be regretted that the local manager is not more careful in his selection. of a variety of amusement, for a cheap show is on par with shortchanging its patrons.

BASE BALL SEASON OPENS Two Games Played Last Sunday by Local Teams Jackson's baseball enthusiasts were treated to'the opening game of the season Sunday last, on the Jackson baseball grounds. - The contesting teams were managed by Dr. Endicott and Frank Valvo, who also pitched fo- their respective sides. The score at the final inning was only 22 to 20, much to the dissappointment of the lady rooters who preferred to see the runs total at least 40 or 50 for each side. Cademartori, who held down second base for the winning team, showed keen judgment in several plays, and M. Eudev, who played on first base did creditable work for his team and the rest of the team— Oh well, of course they were line? However, the star features of the day were furnished by Bob Kerr. Robert surely did swat the small sphere, and beat it around those bags. Doc. should have excused him from paying 84.00 loss fine. A feature which created much excitement and was pulled off just at the right stage was executed by Dave Mason in a sensational catch. The right fielder ran a distance, caught his bail and fell to his knees before he could recover himself. About 7:30 p. m., the players assembled in the National hotel dining room, to partake of the feast which included (we are told) all the good things that can grace a banquet table. Raviola and speeches, wine and cheers were indulged in, and the evening voted a Continued on Page 5 BRANDY CASE UP Molfino Illicit Brandy Case Reported to be Settled It is reported that the charge of illicit brandy that was pending against Mrs Marguerite Molfino has been compromised. It will be remembered that seven barrels of brandy, upon which no revenue tax had been paid, were found over a month ago buried on the Molfino ranch. They were seized by the federal officials, and also the distillery. We are told that after considerable negotiations between the revenue officers and the representatives of the defendant, the matter has been settled. The sum of $3000, according to rumor, was the price of the compromise. Albert Molfino, an attorney of San Francisco, represented his mother in this settlement. The criminal charge of selling liquor to Indians living on the reservation came up for arrraignment in San Francisco on the 20th of last month. Airs Molflnn, the defendant, was represented by Albert Molfino in this case likewise. We have not heard when the case is likely to come to trial. Attorney Moltlno is in the office of attorney Damm of San Francisco, who is the legal adviser of McCarthy, the mayor of that city. Road and state poll taxes are now due and Payable to the assessor, and will be delinquent in August. Hay up and avoid the penalty. tf. Electric hose lasts longer than any other brand.

MINE NEWS ALONG LODE Tailing Plant Results Said to Be Very Encouraging The cyanide mill, owned by Darrow and Fitzsimmnns, which has a 5 year lease on the tailings of the Bunker Hill Mining Co., reports elegant results obtained through their methods of securing the fine gold. The plant is located north of the mine, along the Rancheria creek, and is operated under the foremanshio of Wilton E. Darrow. In the two mills now being operated, there are large wheels, the first carrying G trays and the second 8 trays upon which the fine sulphurets are caught. A third and larger mill is now being considered, and may be erected shortly. New cement walks are being laid at the office of the Kennedy mine. The general appearance of the ground works are being put into tasty shape, and the new walks will add greatly to the beauty of the mine headquarters. Mr Carr, late foreman of the Kennedy Extension, has not been heard from since he and family left this city two weeks ago. The general impression is that he has skipped for good. Chester Holtz, a miner employed at the Kennedy mine, met with a painful injury about 9:30 on Monday morning iast while at work abont the 28th level. Young Holtz was in the act of passing timbers up to his fellow workmen, when a rock from the top of the stope fell, striking him on the left hand, badly cutting the thumb and first finger. Dr. Gall dressed the wound, and no serious trouble is anticipated.
