AUKUM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
AUKUM NOTES. A Homeless Boy Takes an Unceremonious Leave. . Aukum, Feb. 11, 1900.— The measles which were quite prevalent a week or so past, have disappeared. Several had them that had them before. Blanche Gofflnoti is lying quite low with the typhoid fever. The boy-waif, who stopped a while with Mr. Wrigglesworth a couple of months ago, asking for and receiving a home from those generous people, suddenly disappeared, taking Mr. Wrigglesworth's dog along; as nothing could be heard from him for several weeks, the supposition was that he had gone to where he said he had formerly come from— Oakland. Last week Mr. Wrigglesworth found out that he had been seen by Supervisor Hoyte, and from there had gone on his way rejoicing, being like "the Arab that folds his tent and silently steals away." A number of men will be put to work tomorrow morning by Supervisor Hoyte to change a piece of very rocky road between .Wrigglesworth's and Chet Perry's. Hugh Craln and Ray Lewis were seen in this vi...
VOLCANO NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
VOLCANO NEWS. Our Correspondent Awakes and Hake* Observations. Volcano, Feb. 13, 1900.—Everything has been so quiet in our town since Christmas that "Grandad" has been comfortably napping in his armchair by the fireside undisturbed by any outside influences; he is waking up once more to see if there is anything worth while recording. Extensive operations in gravel are going on at Indian Diggings in El Dorado county, about ten miles from here. The continual roar and cracking of blasts might make us imagine ourselves at the front with Buller's army on the Tugela river. While in one case high explosives aro trying to break down a wall of human flesh; in the other it is tearing the bowels of the earth; in both the motive is the same; the quest for gold, that powerful incentive that with facilities, in men and nations alike, arouses the vilest passions of lust and cupidity, and provokes the noblest acts of bravery and manly energy. While quartz mining is almost at a standstill in our imm...
Knocked Down a Shaft. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
Knocked Down a Shaft. About 2 o'clock last Tuesday afternoon quite a serious accident occurred at the Onoida mine, resulting in serious injury to an employe named George Yelland. Workmen were about to lower a pump into the mine when the chain-block flew around and hit Yelland a hard blow, knocking him down the shaft. He fell a distance estimated to be about fifty feet, but, fortunately, escaped death. One leg and one arm sustained severe bruises and a gash three inches long was cut in his head. The physician does not apprehend any difficulty from internal injuries, and i&amp; hopeful that the injured man will be able for duty again in a reasonable length of time. The accident was one of those unfortunate ones that sometimes occur in spite of all due care and caution. We understand that no blame is attached to anyone. The injured man has the sympathy of his fellow workmen and other friends, and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
