 Charles Fuller Gates — The California Rand

                January 31, 1898:  “The California Rand, a weekly paper to be published at Johannesburg, will make its debut into the newspaper world next week, under the guidance of Chas. Fuller Gates, a bicyclist well known in Los Angeles. Mr. Gates is a young man of push, drives a trenchant and diversified pen, and, being well posted on mining matters generally (as seen from a wheel), will no doubt make a success of his venture.” – The Herald 1
