During the past year, especially the winter mouths, there was  a' greatr'deal' of' prospecting go:  ing',on   among   the placers  on  Wiid  Horse.     The  work . done  has demonstrated  the- permanency and depth of the  immense  gravel deposits, arid proved that  the  yellow   metal    abounds   in  paying quantities. ,   The   interesting feature is  that not Jess  than six companies will work on  the creek as soon as  the  season  opens.  Dave Griffith who came down  from Wild Horse on Thursday  reports that good pay gravel has  been struck in the, tunnel now  being run to strike bedrock in  the deep diggings on the creek.  He brought down a beautiful  specimen of placer gold obtained  in the face of the tunnel. E. J.  Cann has also a quantity of tine  gold obtained from panning.
