General John Hewston was a prominent officer in the California National Guard, who played a major role in the resolution of a serious labor dispute in Amador County in 1871. A miners union headquartered at Sutter Creek demanded concessions on wages and working conditions from mine operators. The owners refused, leading to a strike. The mine operators alleged that the union miners were intimidating the mining engineers, causing them to stop work, and causing mines to fill dangerously with water. The mine owners asked Governor Henry H. Haight for assistance because local peacekeepers were unable to cope with the situation. In response, the Governor instructed General Hewston to take two companies of the states National Guard and proceed to Amador County to restore law and order. One of these companies was Company C, which would later present the set of flatware to the General. Before the troops arrived, Governor Haight made a personal visit to the area in a last ditch attempt to settle things without resorting to arms. However, the miners were in no mood to compromise. But the arrival of the troops clearly had an intimidating effect. The strikers came to the negotiating table, and within two days an accommodation was reached. The state of California billed the mine owners approximately 36,000 to cover the cost of the expedition.
