VVm E Barney of Lynn is in town
today. Mr Barney reports things
in a satisfactory condition in the
new camp. A company from Port

dry wash marhinu for working the
immense placer deposits in Sheet)
Gulch. Over $10,000 it> gold was
taken out of this Gulch last year
durng the period when water was
available. These placers have been
worked by Mr Barney for six years
with varying success, lack of
water for sluicing has been the
only thing that has stood between
him and fortune. Now that ma
chinery has been devised that saves
a good portion of the gold without
the water visions of wealth con
tinue to dance before his eyes and
he cherishes the ambition tc get
into the millionaire class. The
Independent hopes his drearr.G may
[ ie realized.
