The ultimate settlement of ownership of the  .Willow" Cieek -, Ditch ' has an ex-  tremely important bearing, upon  the successful issue of this promising section of the "distnct, and it be-  ho\es the authorities to press'for an  early settlement from the Court as  to the legal ownership. '' , -  "t Several thousand dollars'is represented b3* the dumps taken out this  winter, and it is essential that walei  be supplied to wash these out,-  while it'is as equally^ e<*senttal that  about three-quarters^ ot a^ mile of  the ditch be flumed. Froin'a cur-  sory examination, of a plan furnished the Recoider heie, ilnvould aV-  l?ear-that the major portion of the  work*and expense will fall upon  the indn idual owners, of the claims  corrtrguous lo the ditch, and there  seems to be only one thing which  can be done and that is for all the  claim owners to combine together  and have the work done, such proportion as accrues against the ditch  can,be made a charge against the  owners, when the Court has so decided.  - It is a \ ery awkward dilemma  for the .miners to be placed in, but  immediate action is "required to  save the workings from ruin by  flooding when the water is turned  on by the hidiaulic company. .    >���  An Excellent Programme  of Ar-  Ilo'c-  l  key Extraordinary.

The ' Financial  Times' con>idcis that thc official  announcement of a large increase  in the value of thc output will come  as a very agreeable surprise to  ��� many, as tbe circulation of reports  giving a contrary impression had  caused a very despondent view to  betaken 'of the mining industry  during 1901, which does not seem  to have been warranted by tbe  facts.'  "Tbe 'Financial News,' in its  comment states that the matter for  regret is that such'a very small  pioportion of thc value of the mineral production of British Columbia  has found its way into tbe pockets  'of Biitish shareholders.  give up its  golden  contents.    Farther up   the   creek   another drift,  vvhich*was started a few weeks ago,  is in about 30 feet, and in  this the  pay is equally as satisfactory as in  the  drift already mentioned.    One  notable feature is that the value of  pay steadily increases with distance  from  the creek, and suggests that  the gutter of tbe ancient auriferous  channel has not yet been reached.  From panning tests, the gravel of |  tbe pay streak will average from 12  to 15 cents to the pan.    Two nuggets, worth  over $40 apiece, were  recently   picked   up" off  bedrock.  The compact  nature of the gravel  does away   witb the   necessity of  timbering.
