SLATE CREEK PLACERS.
V Mr. Alex. Swan, Manager for the Slate
Creek Exploration Co., Lt'd, was ini
Princeton this week on a short visit.
Mr. Swan states th'at he has three men
employed in laying pipe and getting the
flume in place. The company have overl
300 acres of placer ground at the mouth
of Slate Creek. Careful tests of this
ground show it to carr3* frcm 6 to 12
cents per cubic yard.
It has taken over three years to get
this ground in shape for rapid and economical working, and it will be a year
yet before the company can hope to realize much on their outlay. The values
in the ground are half platinum and half

ir Mr. T. A. Collins, late ot Vi<3o#£\B
YC, is visiting this district with a -few to
securing land upon which to settle. Mr
Collins prospected for placers in this
country about 16 years ago. He located
a claim at the"~nftm*fe- of what is now
known as Collins'TJulch (it having been
named after him) and worked the grounc
until the pay dirt was exhausted. The
claim was   not   considered very   rich at
about $5.00 per day.  ' i%iS£^.—"	
Mr. Collins saw no evidence of the excellent coal which has since been discov-

It is stated on reliable authority that
an English company has offered the New
Fairview Corporation $1,000,000 for the
Stemwinder, one of. i^e-properties.
