About a hundred native miners were employed on each of three shifts under the supervision of a Filipino capataz, obviously a bastardization of the word “captain,” and three assistants on each shift. It was my duty to plan each day’s operations, observe the work and check the safety. And, of course, I had to perform the unceasing paperwork.

The stream we were following soon began to get too wide and deep for wading and we were forced to take to the bank.
