100 years ago — 1911: The Entiat Valley has the distinction of having one of the very few mines in the west which pays dividends. Local stockholders of the Wenatchee Gold Mining Co. received checks ranging from a few to several hundred dollars each. The company paid out in dividend $5,000, being half a cent on a capital stock of one million shares. Among the local stockholders are F.M. Scheble, Jack Lillis, Terry Ross, A.V. Huff, M.P. Spencer and Dave Stine.
