The fact that one company controls all the minea there militr.te against this r.s a very large miring ramp. It is said by some that the town is notan lively ay it wui three months ago, owing, probably to the iloatmg population going in a body to the Percha. About 4!) or .K people are coming daily, passing on to Kingston. The latter town lias a population of from .'350 to 500. Jt is laid out in a narrow canon and can never have more than one street. Con sequently, ii it should become a big town, it will necessarily fie a very long one. There has been a scar city of lumber throughout that whole country, but considerable is now coming in. Kingston town site was located as a mill site and there is trouble about titlei- to town lots, as the parties who located the site can not, under their location, r.cipiiro title for that purpose. Lots, bow-ever, are selling at from &;',.() to i00. One woman has taken a lot and built on it and rc-fu.-;es to pay for it. She is not being molested. It is probable there will be a lull in the boom this winter; for, as soon. :r; people find out there are no mills and no way to reduce t he ores and put money in circulation and that there is great doubt, about the permanency of the mines, it is probable that immigration will cease. At present, people are liv ing o.T the immigrants arryir.g daily, every one of -whom brings a few dollar:) with him.
