BERLIN, Sol. J.
A correspondent in a Salt Lake paper writes a column and a half article on the valuable land possessions of Sol. J. Berlin, formerly a resident of Ironton, who has for years been interested in large mining and stock raising properties in the west. Mr. Berlin when in Ironton, was a vigorous thinker and an active man in many ways. He has now developed into a strong populist. His articles on political issues appear in Colorado papers. The Salt Lake correspondent writes from Berlin’s Ranch, which he says is four miles from the monument, marking the four corners of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. The tract he describes embraces a plateau which seems once to have been the bed of an intermountain sea. It is rich in marine fossils, and bars bearing valuable mineral deposits.
The writer says: S.J. BERLIN, an old time San Juan miner and mill man, has established his home here on the river bank, and for his hermit life is gathering a competence. He has been here eight years, owns several ranches, 500 head of cattle, 500 horses and is well heeled otherwise. In addition, himself and associates have taken up and hold 1,280 acres of the best placer ground on the San Juan river, and when he is tired of herding stock, or sitting around, he pans out a few colors of the root of all evil, just enough to sharpen his appetite, keep him in tune, and remind him that the gold-bug still liveth. If the river was made of gold and the bars were nuggets, still he would have no love for the financial robbers, who are sapping the life blood of the nation….
