Central, Sidney, MT 406-433-3655 cell: 406-48 Fairview history Continued Superstition Mountains and the Lost Dutchman mine IY mm atossum fly. They became friends some of the landmarks. SIONEY HERkLD There are many stories about the Superstition Mountains and the Lost Dutchman mine. As I be- came interested about Clay- ton Worst Jr., I discovered that Clayton was one of the founders of the Superstition Mountain Historical Society and the museum. He has a DVD out telling his story of the Dutchman mine. Worst opens the lectures series with the life of Jacob Waltz. Waltz was one of the men on an expedition h~at Dr. Thorne financed looking for the gold. Thorne, accord- ingto Worst, was a friend of the Navajos Indians. They blindfolded him and took ~him to the gold mine and he was allowed to take gold out of the mine, all he could car- ,ry He had longjohns on at the time, tied knots in them and filled them up with gold. The astonished Indians laughed as it looked like a haft man riding a horse :when Thorne lifted the gold onto his horse. After that, Thorne spent all his time looking for that mine and went bankrupt looking for the gold. He organized expe- ditions upon expeditions but did not find the mine. The ex- pedition finally headed back ilhome emptg, but one man stayed behind, Jacob Waltz. ! One day looking for the :mine, Waltz came across a camp occupied by three Mex- icans. They claimed to be de- ;scendants of the Peralta faro- with Waltz and showed him the mine. After helping the Mexicans, he became greedy and felt the mine belong to him as he has spent his en- tire life looking for this gold, his gold. He shot and killed the three men. Waltz did not mind that fast-year fearing family members of the Peralta fam- ily would retaliate. That sec- ond year he did go up in the mountains and started min- ing. Any one who even came close to the mine Waltz would kill. Getting on in age, in 1870, Waltz filed on a homestead of about 160 acres near Phoenix. In 1891 there was a huge flood and Waltz's house floated away. Waltz was rescued as he clung to a tree he had climbed up. He fell ill after that, and was nursed by Julia Thomas, a friend of his who also spoke German. There were only two peo- ple present on Waltz deathbed. Roberts who was his next-door neighbor and their homesteads were by each other. And Dick Holmes, another friend. Waltz proceeded to show Holmes his gold that was un- der his bed. When Holmes opened Waltz miner's candle box under the bed, Holmes couldn't believe his eyes. Waltz gave the gold to Holmes as a grubstake to mine the gold. Waltz wanted Holmes to fred the mine and give some of it to Thomas, Petrash and Roberts. Waltz proceeded to tell him Waltz had covered the mine with lumber from the inside and on the outside stack rocks. He did such a good job covering up the mine. Waltz said you could be right in front of it and you wouldn't see it. Holmes researched and validated some of the statements that Waltz had told him. It checked out and so Holmes and Roberts be- lieved Waltz was telling the truth and the mine exists. Was there such a mine? The people that knew the Dutchman never doubted for a minute. Dick Holmes mined for 16 years, When he hurt his leg and could no longer look for the mine he sent his only son George "Brownie" Holmes into the Superstition Mountains for 40 years to look for the mine. "I believe in the lost Dutch- man mine," says Clayton Worst. "Brownie Holmes was one of my dearest friends that I have ever had. He was my partner for 20 years hunting the Dutchman mine. I am absolutely con- vinced that Waltz had a mine hidden somewhere and he told Dick Homes about it." Worst still takes to the hardscrabble country of the Superstitions when he can fmd time. At 79, Worst works his mine every day. He owns the Old Wasp mine, founded in 1893. EDITOR'S NOTE: Information cam- piled from Clayton Worst.
