Following is a link to a series of articles related to mining. Many names and locales are mentioned. Perhaps your ancestor is among the entire narrative, which includes places, place names, mining camp names, counties, territories & provinces, states, sites, and so on.

To some extent, if you want a side hobby of looking for gold nuggets with a metal detector or mining equipment, or explore old mining sites, many of the posts deal with specific topics and areas where you could go.

lotsa luck in your quest!

WELLINGTON PRIZE GOES WEST OF MISSISSIPPI SECOND TIME
Fred C. Carstarphen of Denver, Colorado, has been awarded the Arthur M. Wellington prize by the board of directors of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The winner of the prize is determined by a committee of the society, who makes its recommendations to the board. Presentation will be made in January, 1980.

The Wellington Prize was founded by the Engineering News Record in 1921, and has been awarded six times, this being the second time that the honor has been conferred west of the Mississippi River and the first time that it has been given to a mining engineer.

Mr. Carstarphen’s paper, “Aerial Tramways,” has been selected as the best paper on transportation during the year 1928. It contains diagrams, tables and mathematical formulae, and, as published in volume 92 by the American Society of Civil Engineers, fills 98 pages.

Mr. Carstarphen graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1905, and took a contract to survey public lands in Routt County, Colorado. He was member of the Carstarphen-Hewitt Engineering Corporation in Denver, which was dissolved in 1908, and at which time he entered private practice. From that time until now, when he is engaged in consulting capacity for a number of companies, his career includes positions as general manager of the Vulcan Sulphur Company; manager of the Gilsonite Company of America; chief aerial tramway engineer for the American Steel and Wire Company at Trenton, New Jersey; and vice-president and chief engineer for the Manufacturers Selling Corporation, also in New Jersey.

The two-mile aerial tramway recently installed by the Shenandoah-Dives company was designed by Mr. Carstarphen.

PostPosted: Sun Oct 11, 2009 2:37 am    Post subject: MODIFICATIONS OF POSTS Reply with quote

I have re-arranged the previous 14 pages or so of posts allotted to this thread, into the corresponding categories by year. I have also attempted to compile additional lists of pictures, posted in a separate category; as well as within the corresponding narrative headings where specific people were involved.

No means complete.

I am also mulling over additional mining related posts and how to best highlight people and their accomplishments or contributions...
=-=-=-=
'LIFTING' PICTURES.

Mentioned elsewhere, placement of the mouse pointer over most pictures online, double clik the right hand mouse button, scroll down the list to properties, left clik that, then select whole text (usually starts with http), then press 'ctrl C' together, then in another document, using mouse pointer to designate where, clik left button once, then 'ctrl V' together to paste link. left clik on link to get pull up linked picture.

Note: to activate link thread of picture, one has to either hit the 'enter' key after .jpg or other suffix. If text notes are to be made of linked picture, at the end of link syntax hit the space bar 1 or two times, then type the notes. the link will change color in a document, not in an online posting. Once online posting document is actually posted, the picture link will change color if action is performed correctly.

PICTURE SIZE

Thumbnails and minimized pictures- sometime it is convenient to post a picture smaller than full size in a document or blog/thread. Just before attempting to 'lift' the picture, MAKE SURE THAT YOU MAXIMIZE THE PICTURE. Once maximized, the picture will display in a separate window. The address bar is the link. Copy the full text in the address bar to serve as the link in another document or thread. add notes after hitting the space bar once or twice.
=-=-=-
Some forums allow original picture posting. It does not mean that you have to leave the photograph intact after posting.

In other words, post a picture, and let it come up on a post within the thread. Right clik on the picture, copy the properties link, and save it into some other document, along with detail notes. Then, if you wish, go back to the original post and delete the picture or post (all or part). Though the picture is no longer visible in the original post, the imprint remains loaded on the thread server, and for the rest of data's time going around the planet, clikking on the link will pull up the image for all to see or review.
=-=-=-=
While on this subject, MOST ANYTHING posted on the web is never erased. Though you may erase the data from your own computer, email files, personal pages of this or any other forum, myspace, facebook, etc., the data is not erased from the server, and anyone with the capability to perform a personnel or personal search for anything related to your posts made by your own free will (along with the corresponding ISP thread/link), can get the 'goods' on you, right down to your specific street address or other very personal data that you may have elected to throw online.
One is not secure online, a reason that many use encryption of some type or format. Even that is not secure in that it places your data in a 'locked vault' so to speak, but only makes the task a bit more tedious to unlock.

Once a person or poster can grasp these facts, it is usually too late to get the really personal posts and emails eradicated. The hope is that it will be so 'buried' in the garbage pile, that it won't show up somewhere, but government and technological search methods are so much more sophisticated than the regular run of the mill user, that anything posted can be uncovered and used against the original author, since Al Gore invented the Internet. Of course, no time like the present to turn a new leaf and be aware of what and what not to post, where and when.

I learned all about this quite a few years ago when involved in vandal prosecution. For instance, a lot of graffiti vandals run loose online with commentary/guest books, as well as posting pictures of their 'work'. All it takes is for a law enforcement official to subpoena a specific website, page, internet provider, in order to gain specific poster addresses, subscriber info, real names, monikers used, responsible adults or parties; sometimes links to cell phones and other user info, etc.

The perpetrator, confronted with all the info gathered, photos, property damage estimates, tags and pictures, billing info... the case becomes a fairly solid slam dunk in court. All based on the desire to brag about one's crimes or actions.

Thus, a case or single tag worth maybe $50, or a name turned in to law enforcement goes from simple to felony, and a phrase on a credit report resulting in a lien to pay $200 up to $760,000.
We're living '1984'. true privacy is shrinking.
=-=-=-=
If you post on another site, or have found pictures you want to post on this site that are found on another site, simply go to the thread post, right clik on the picture, and then select 'properties' at the bottom of the pop up list.

once you clik on properties, you should get an address starting with http.

select with the left button on the mouse, and then key 'ctrl' 'c'.

open a blank page on a word file, or some word processor, and paste in your copy ('ctrl' 'v'). above, below, or at either end, you can type in the particulars and details that you want people to know about the picture.

To post that into this site, simply go to the word processor page that has the whole list of your links, and clik 'ctrl' 'a' (Select All), then 'ctrl' 'c' (copy), then inside of your thread post, clik with the right button where you would like the link to appear, and after you get a flashing cursor placed, simply clik 'ctrl' 'v' (paste).

then post (or submit) as the case may be.

after your post goes through, go onto that thread and clik on one of the links with the left button of your mouse. If you did everything right, your picture should pull up.

As a registered user, you can always go back into your thread post and edit it, so that it ends up being exactly how you want your post to be.

[quote="rehab"]Following is a link to a series of articles related to mining. Many names and locales are mentioned. Perhaps your ancestor is among the entire narrative, which includes places, place names, mining camp names, counties, territories & provinces, states, sites, and so on.

To some extent, if you want a side hobby of looking for gold nuggets with a metal detector or mining equipment, or explore old mining sites, many of the posts deal with specific topics and areas where you could go.

lotsa luck in your quest!
