is in such a shai' a to render it
almost impassable, especially for load
ed teams. Ahout "ml yards of t ho
cruising, before the brijge is renched
is made of large boulders thrown in
the water. These boulders are entire
ly covered with water and ate hi huge
that a team can hardly get across.
Mr. liiirns made an estimate of the
work and cost of the needed, repairs,
lie Hays that 'J' loads of gravel,
w Inch would not. base to be hauled
but n short dii-tance and 'Jittl feet of
lumber would put the crossing iu good
shape. Ho says nil they ask is lot the
crossing t" bo made passable, mid
that the settlers are not asking more
Ihati their lights. About a year ami
this matter was up for d iscussion, mid
The Kxnminer talked it quite freely
shown that such repairs us vyere need
ed on this road to put it in passable
condition could bo justified by actu
al needs, such repairs should be made.
There is one thing sMre, roads that
are to be used cannot be made too
good; and it is only a matter of suffi
cient use to justify the expenditure
in this case, which Is not for us to
say, but judging from the nigiiers to
the petition wan ants us in saying
that Iho county court should make
proper invest igatlons to warrant whut
ever action tho court may take.

J. Monroe, Layman, the mining man
of liidwell, paid Lakeview a visit last
week. Mr. Layman has had a great
deal of experience in raining and op
erating large mining deals, each aa
putting quartz claims on the market,
and he is firmly of the belief that the
mining district on the mountain be
tween Goose Lake eiid Surprise val
leys, is fully as (.'Ool as has been stat
ed of them. lie is aware of the great
difficulty in men of small means, es
pecially eo far from railioad transpor
tation, and where quartz mills bare to
be shipped in at a big expense in
order to reduce the ore, as it would
lie almost impossible to ship ore as it
is takeufrotn the mines so frreat a dis
tance to where it can be worked. As
stated before in Tho Examiner, Mr.
Layman lias purchased a five stamp
