Ed. Republican : Your excellent
paper comes to band every week for
which I have to thank mj cousin, D.
W. Clark, of your place. It does me
good to see a paper from "America,"
even, though the place u strange to
I have been at work recently run
ning an engine in a smelter, but at
present am working at wy trade, to
ff it, carpentering. Am getting $4.00
par day, which is quite good wages,
considering the price of provisions, as
we can buy provisions here about as
cheap as in Omaha, where they pay
f 1.50 per day, and work scarce at that.
We are not doiug anything on our
claims at present ; think best to work
while there is plenty to do and wages
good, for as soon as winter comes on,
the "Yahoo's" (Mormons) will flock in
from all quarters and work for "grub"
f nothing more.
We now have our best claim in
shape to work in winter, when snow
will answer for water. The latter is
rather scarce on the hills. In the sum
mer the water business is quite an
item here, and it seems queer to the
"Tender-Foot (a person from the
States) to have to buy water. On the
hill north of town they charge lOo per
gallon, and on the hill south 5c. The
water is obtained from fine springs on
the top of either hill, near the upper
end of the Canon.
The mines still continue good, and a
few rich ones are being (truck occas
ionally, but not as often as early in
the season. About everything that
was in sight has been located, conse
quently, if anything is found now, the
prospector has to dig for it, or sink
Our mills are crushing ore quite

just now; one starts to-morrow and
the other two soon. The Arastras are
working steady. J. be town still im
proves, if not morally it does in iniqui
ty, as there is being built a bowling
alley, and improvements in the way of
saloons still eontinue.
On the 2d inst, a party consisting
of thirteen persons all married, and
having six of our other parts along,
started for Utah Lake id an old four
horse hack, on a fishing and hunting
trip. At noon we arrived at old Camp
Floyd where wo waited somo three
hours to have some blacksmithing
done on the hack, so the old concern
would hold together for the balance of
tho tirp. Y' e broke the lead bars, the
king-bolt, and lost only seventeen nuts
off the old rattletrap. Floyd is some
twenty-three miles from Ophir around
the valley, and twelve across the hills.
n e find no water on the road after
leaving East Canon till we arrive at
Floyd. They have as fine a spring of
water there as one could ask for. The
town is about crumbled down, or rath
er the houses, as they they are built of
We spread our table-cloth on the
ground and partook of the provisions
brought with us, after which we again
started on our journey. From here we
had a fine road, it being one of the old
California routes. We found no water
until we arrived at the river Jordan,
which connects Utah Lai a with Salt
Lake. We arrived at Lehl at sunset ;
distance traveled, forty miles. Lehi is
situated about two miles from the south
end of the lake, is a very pretty place,
but like all others in this section, is
built of adobes. We 'camped" id the
On the 3d, we moved some eight
miles on the west side of the lake, to
the hot springs, and camped. These
t prings are quite a curiosity, being two
iu number aud only a few rods from
tho lake. They are some fifteen feet in
diameter; one, it is said, has no bot
tom. The Jake is some ten by thirty miles,
with low banks and a sort of muddy
water. It is claimed that it is the best
place for Gelling in the Territory. We
worked around the south end of the
lake all day, and caught a few chubs
and shot a few "tip-ups," but nothing
else could we reach with line or shot.
Camped for the night nearly disgusted
with our trip.
On the 4th, we broke camp and
and started up the lake ; went eight
miles and got two men to draw a wins

dred suckers and chubs, but ne'er a
trout. From hero we have a fine view
of the east side ; we could see five vil
lages, among them the American Forks
and other noted mining districts.
The soil around the lake is like all
I have seen here, it is of no use unless
you can get water to irrigate with.
On the backward route we camped
at Floyd, and on the 5th got home at
noon, pretty well tuckered.
I suppose you will not have room
for more, so I will close, wishing your
self and the Republican a prosperous
future. Yours &c,
