Compiled by the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance

This week in history as reported by the Summit County Journal 100 years ago — May 3, 1919

A deal for the Cashier property in Brown’s Gulch was scheduled this week and the money paid, the Royal Tigers Mines company purchasing the property from the Cashier Mining and Milling company.

The Cashier has a record of producing $105,000 worth of gold bullion (which was sold to the United States Mint of Denver) and about $25,000 worth of concentrates which were sold to smelters.

The Boy Scouts went on a hike on the 21st and cooked their supper after which they held their regular meeting in the area around a campfire.

Led by the chicken coop keeper, 75 members of the Socialist Sanitarium at Liberty are on strike. They demanded herring for dinner. Sausage was on the menu, so they didn’t eat.
