Supes deadlock on DA appointment

by PAT LAKEY

El Dorado County still is without a permanent district attorney, despite a vote Wednesday by the Board of Supervisors to try to choose one of three candidates for the job.

Acting District Attorney Walt Miller managed to win the votes of Supervisors Jack Sweeney and Bob Dorr, but Pat Lowe and John Cefalu voted “no” on appointing Miller to the post that was left vacant last month when Ron Tepper committed suicide.

Cefalu earlier had nominated South Lake Tahoe attorney Phil Kohn to be district attorney, but his motion died for lack of a second.

In what she described as a “compromise” effort after Miller and Kohn failed to win a majority vote, Lowe proposed that Tom Temmerman, a former assistant district attorney for El Dorado County, be appointed, but her motion also died for lack of a second.

Following the deadlock voting Wednesday, the four supervisors agreed to take up the matter at their regular session Tuesday, when they may vote again in an attempt to fill the post.

Jos. C. Beach Named Mayor

The city council met and organized for the new term on Tuesday evening, electing Joseph C. Beach as president of the board and ex officio mayor of Placerville.

Final and complete figures were seven hundred fifteen ballots cast including sixteen absentee votes.

Organizing for a new term, following the election of Mayor Beach the council re-appointed Guy E. Wentworth as city judge; Russell Anderson as city works superintendent; M. D. Killian as chief of police and Thomas Maul as city attorney.

The Last Chance Mine to Have Another Chance

The famous old Last Chance mine at Coloma, which paid such fabulous sums in years gone by, is to be opened again by Messrs. L. N. Strickler, J. F. Owen and Albert Shafsky, of this city. This mine produced a pocket of $60,000 when owned by Messrs. Peterson and Nicolison, and a number of smaller pockets were taken out later by the same men. It has been operated by different parties since with varying results, one company working it eight months without any indications of further deposits of the yellow metal. It was abandoned for a year, when a couple of strangers bonded the property, and within ten feet of where the others quit work, took out something over $4,800. It has been worked since, but not systematically, and if Messrs. Shafsky, Strickler and Owen prove as lucky in their second mining venture as in their first, we may look for great things from the old Last Chance. Mr. Strickler is related to the Petersons, first owners of the mine, and we trust may be as fortunate. Operations will be under way by the first week in May.
