Very Late Season, But Minors Are  Making- the Most of the High  Water.  GOLD RUN:-On Gold' Run a  very large amount of'work has lieen  done during the winter which can  hardly be realized unless one visits  the camp. The few men who are  still there 'are' now washing out  their clumps arrd the ' results are  eminently satisfactory. 'Howard  and partners are world, g, four men  sluicing, though at the time of our  visa water was rather scarce���except down the shafts. Before quitting the drifts a new aud deeper  pay' channel- was struck iu Howard's shaft, which carries good  pay. Mr. Small has two men sluicing out his'dump are making  good wages. Mr. Stukey and  partner had just commenced to  sink on the ridge between Small  and Crichtoii.-and were down about  12 feet, the water seems to be falling a's they go clown. - Crichton  was sluicing out his dump. Cooper and partners, who have gone up  td1Boiilder for 'the summer, had'a  very fit.e clean up for the winter's  work'? Thomas and partners have  shut dowrr for the season, but are  well satisfied with the outlook.  Kent has gone to work for the Sunrise Co., but intends goiirg to  work his property again -next  winter. As winter diggings no  district offers belter prospects than  Gold Run, though it is an expensive property to open up.  BOULDER: ��� In spite of' the  high water, Boulder is showing  signs of much activity, and more  men are at work orr this-creek than  any other in the-district in comparison. Full advantage is being taken  of tlie slate of the water for ground-  sluicing purposes, and before the  creek gets clown to its normal, air  immense amount of labor will have  been saved. On No. 1 above, Mr.  Rosenberg has rive men at work  ground-sluicing. 2 above, P. A.  'Morris has two men at work Oir  3 and 4 Mr. Nickson contemplates  going to work. Seaton and Latham are ground-sluicing on the  bench opposite 3 above. At 5  above, Mcintosh, of Atlin, has two  men ground-1-hiicing and shovelling  in and taking out gold. Jack Beat-  tie and Clark are getting ready lo  ���sluice on 5 above. Swenceski Bros,  arc sluicing and taking out money  on 9 or 10 abjve; so also are Van  Wait and sous between 12 unci 14.  Bainbridge and partners come next  and are making active preparations  for the first clean-up. Lord and  Woods worth are taking out good  money on   20   above,. Black   and  Grant, on their group about 10 \n-  low arc doing very well: �� Shot lie-  worth and Co, next u- Black, aic-  gelting ready to ground-sluice, and  arc taking out- a little gold in' the  meantime. 'Almost every creek  and bench claim as f:tr down as 35  below is being represented. Several  fair nuggets liave been found this  season. Boulder is sure to make a  record this year. On . the La mare  Syndicate's property work is being  actively, pushed. A second monitor  has been pui in place and another  flume laid, with air elevation four  feet lower than the old one. Mr.  Clere, the Superintending Engineer,  is'very sanguine and highly'satis-  lactory results are'.looked for. He  has ai'i able staff- of men with him  and the workings have , been arranged this year- with a view to  efficiency at a minimum of expense.  In order to accommodate his neighbors on the creek Mr. Clere operates  at night so that the individual  miners' may have the use oi" all lhe  water- during the day. If such a  policy were adopted in other [rails  of the district there would be less  friction aird ill feeling between the  individual miners and companies.  ���Live aud let live.        ,   ���  WRIGHT : ��� The   Perrdugwig'  Sytrdicatehave quite a force of men  at work on their property, and have  been moving their flumes and pipes  "about half a mile down the creek to -  a-point which "is   considered   more  advantageous to   work from,   than  where they were working last year.  The}', have  started ground-sluicing  this   week, and   as   soon as piping  commences the force of men will be  considerably increased. ' The works  are   under   the superintendence of  Mr. Bartrim.    There are a few me:i  at work sluicing oir the   Discovery.  The   Moose Mining Co., on i' lo 5  above,   are   getting   ready   for iho.  season's operations, "and  are endeavoring to   consolidate   with several  other   claims   iu,.their vicinity, in  order   that   they may  have a goud  sized  property to offer some buyers  expected from  the  east.     Porter &  Co. have gone to work   on the west  side  of   the   creek   about 8 above,  Mr. Tulloch is^'at work on 3 below.  It is feared   that   the season on this  creek will be very   short,   owing to  the  protracted   winter.    The creek  is rising very  rapidly   and   there is  every reason   to   believe   that   the  freshet will be a big cure this seasorr,  so that with   the   late   season   arid  high water ue cannot look for anything above the ordinary.  Satisfactory reports are received  from the Alder cteek property and  the boomer is a-hooming.  Piping 011 the Atlin Lake Mining  Co.'s property, on Birch creek, is  being actively prosecuted, with a  hire head of water. Satisfactory results are anticipated.  The Pine Tunnel Syndicate shareholders will be pleased to learn that  the big deal is practically completed  and that Mr, O. T. Switzer leaves  for the east next week.

A matter .of* much impoit has  been brought to our rrotice by mail  received on the la'st incoming boat,  which, no doubt, will be welcomed  by miners, particularly, these hailing from British Columbia. The  Dominion -Government, though  pressed pretty hard with the claims  of Vancouver for the establishment  of a mint in that' city, has respeci-  fnlly declined to establish one  there," but has appropriated a large  sum for the erection of such an institution at Ottawa. However,, the  Government has done the next best  thing, aud; in combination with the  Provincial Government, has agreed  to the establishment of Assay offices in Vancouver and. Victoria.  In order that-' all business offered  this season may be taken, the merchants aud citizens of the former city,* assisted by the Boaid of  Trade,' have ��� subscribed over $5000  towards defraying the preliminary  expenses of. such. Assay office.  Miirers may' now receive from any  of the banks in Vancouver the full  assay value of all gold���equal to  the Seattle Assay office���without  any. deduction whatever, upon presentation of a certificate from the  Provincial Government Assayer at  Vancouver.  a reference to this property is'made,  in which a statement of the Nim-  rod Syndicate gives returns of $10  to the ton. This report also states  that the " vein varies in width from  2 to 7 feet and appears to be a well-  marked fissure .,'vein." I hope to  sec the mine sold and work on the  property re-commenced this slimmer. Thanking yon in anticipation  for the publication of these remarks.  I am', Sir, etc.,  W. Wallace- Grime.  Atlin, B. C, June 14, 1901.  Pine City Gossip.  LETTER' TO THE EDITOR.  Dear Sir:���As there appears to  be some misconception here respecting the present ownership of the  Imperial mine on Monro mountain, the following information-regarding the same may lie of interest  to your readers.  The   proper ty   belongs   to three  English prospectors, Messrs. Moorer  Stokes and  Jones, and was bonded  by them to the  Nimrod, Syndicate  of London, England,   early  in   the  season  of  last   year; development  work  was  proceeded with  duriug  the summer   and   results were said  to   be  satisfactory    at    the    time.  Through   non-compliance   with its  conditions the- bond lapsed in September   last  and  the property was  immediately re-bonded to the Klon-  dyke   Bonanza   Co,,   of   London,  through   their   Atlin   Agent,   Mr.  Joseph  Fall. . For some reason not  yet made  perfectly clear, the terms  of the  second  agreement  were not  kept and   the   bond   was forfeited,  the property reverting  to the original owners, in  whose hands it still  remains.   The title is now perfect,  Crown Grants to the claims having  been issued some months ago.  The report on the property by  Mr. Gilroy in your last issue coincides with the opinion of several  other experienced men who; have  visited the mine since active development work,was stopped.  Iu the Summary Report of the  Dominion   Geological   Department  From our Discovery Correspondent,  The Ruby Creek Hydraulic people are going ahead; they have  been prospecting and find their  gravel pays from Si.25 to $1.50 per  yard..  We are glad to greet friend Dr.  Lewis, who has opened an office at  the Nugget Hotel. Though, fortunately vve have little need of a  doctor's ' services in Discovery, we  must wish him every prosperity.  We wonder if Messrs. Le Cappel-  laiir, " Raiirie McLeod, Conly and  Gaddis, who 'visited, Discovery on  Wednesday aronriug, enjoyed the  .strawberries and cream they said  they had at the Nugget Restaurant,  or was their attraction other than  the luscious berry.  ��� Somebody  ask Fall  of  Boulder  creek what befell his gum boots? .  Nurses Mitchell and Bone, of the  Atlin Hospital have been, visiting  Mrs. Stubblefield during \ the past  week. ���  Black must' be' 'doing t well o:;  Boulder; he is said to be buying  from ten to fifteen pounds of fish  twice a week. , Piscivorous diet is  ; recommended for cerebral development, but how about muscular?  Cake, coffee, strawberries and  creamy only .50 cents, at the Nugget Restaurant.  Someone���perhaps Ro-xie of Discovery���has built a summer hotel  at Surprise lake "Tis said he came  to town the other day and asked  Dr. Lewis if he could raise apple  trees from dried apples. The Dr.  told hint, "yes, certainly.".'So he  went to Father Newton and bought  1 a box of dried apples, and Tom  WThite says he is planting them  with the intention of raising an orchard, ' and that he ' has already  planted raspberries and strawberries  ���B.C.F.C. & C. Co.'s brand���aud  contemplates raising seedless raisins  from .the Monarch brand of seeded  raisins. He ought to grow oranges  from Keiller's marmalade.

News of the Creeks.  >   PINE CREEK:���Owing  to the  -f high water on the creek practically  all work on the creek , claims lias  been suspended from 36 below up  to the mouth of Gold Run. The  f. only claims working below Discovery are those owned by Pete  Rocco, opposite the Stevendyke  property!"- .He has been ; sluicing  for the last two weeks'an*d anticipates a satisfactory clean up- A  large   number -of   the ^benches on  ,.hoth sides of the creek from 18 below to the Caledonia group will be  worked this season! M. Harris has  bought out the small diteh l>elo\v  Discovery, and every available inch  of water is being utilized. Harris  has several men at work ground-  sluicing and  the  prospects  are re-  ' ported as very good. Harrigan &  Sabin are- having pipes laid from  the Sunrise ditch for the purpose of  washing out their benches on the  the south side of the creek. McLaren & Miller, on Discovery, have  ground-sluiced out several hundred  - feet of, their north benches and a  number of men are now.at work. A  ��� bedrock flume has been laid and  they intend to work out a big strip  of ground with a monitor, drawing  water from the Sunrise'ditch.  The Atlin-Willow Creek Co. is  practically ready for--the season's  operations on both Willow creek  and the Caledonia group.  , Mr. Annibal, about 18 above,  oil Pirre, has a few men working  aud he reports the prospects excellent.  Little individual work has been  done on Willow, owing to the  depth of frost, however,,it is expected that several claims will ere  long be worked. Mr. Queen has  moved up to Willow and is waiting  a favorable opportunity to get to  work. The water question is still  a sore and knotty problem with the  individual miners on Willow.  At the mouth of Gold Run work  is being resumed on the north side  of Pine creek where good money  was made last year, and we trust  the owners may have another prosperous season.
