At present in the transition period  between ice travel aud navigation  the camp appears to be dull and  naturally a little grumbling is indulged in. We should remember  however that we experience the  same dullness every year and that  it is only temporary. The present  indications are .thai .the coming season will,be a hus3* one.  Work on the creeks is progressing  very favorably and we hope   to   be  able   to   publish   next   week a full  account  of and prospects,  from our special  correspondent  .at  Wilson   creek.    The   reports from  this point so far.are very favorable.  A number.of .quartz   men   have  signified  their intention.of visiting  lis and, with the impetus  given   to  quartz   mining   by   the   successful  working ofthe mines in the Windv  Arm   district, . there should not be  much trouble in getting some of our  own   rich     quartz;   properties   developed.  In this connection it might he as  well to say lo those holding quartz  properties that it is almost absolutely- necessary ' to do devplopment  work. Quartz mining, is fast becoming a matter of, strict, business,  the advances being made are such,  that the da vs.of selling, a hole in  the ground are.gone. If, you have  the goods, von...can sell them but  you must dq..euough.\vprk to show  what you . have. Prospects are a  drug on the market.       .,  Mining men are looking to the  2\Torth both-for-qnartz and placer.

People claiming to be   informed   on  conciilions prevailing at  Conrad City declare that the mines  in that locality, both in the  Yukon  and'lhitish Columbia, ��� are   wonderfully rich   and   the  development itr  these   districts   is hound to bring a  great deal of business lo Vancouver,  which is the one great   supply centre for the  whole   northern   mining  couutrv. ,      ���. -    .
