Editor Press. —We arrived at the min ing camp on American creek and its tributaries and found Peter Beamer and Jo.

Idaho for winter supplies etc. They have con structed a ditch about five miles in length with a capacity of carrying about 800 inches of water from tributaries of 2nd, the M. A. and Adams creek. The ditch is one of the finest pieces of engineering possible, and old Peter the ctdef is deserving of much credit, also his comrades for the neat and perfect uniformity in digging. They expect to dig Hbout two miles more in extending said ditch this win ter so as to cover Baker, Bear Pete, and Minton gulches, all of which have been thoroughly prospected and from which they expect to reap the golden harvest they so justly deserve, and I being an old practical miner und having tested numerous puns from the dirt thrown out of the various holes sunk on their claims, I am sure they will he well paid for all their hard struggles in venturing into tiiat wild forest and opening said claims. The boys are in line spirits, and ''Old Peter" and Jo Baker are very proud of their tine vegetable garden. Maxwell, Howe, Gray a Co., who own the main American creek, have suspen ded operating, their claims for this year but are prepared to open out early next spring. 1 urn informed that their ground prospects well. There is wild game in abundance in this camp; elk, deer, hear and smaller game.
