James Stables,, M. L. A., Introduces an Important Bill���A  Mining Deal Consummated..  The text of the Amendment to  the Medical Act, 1898, to which reference is made in another column,,  and which is introduced in the  House by Mr. Stables, M. L. A., is  as follows:  "(c). Tlie Council shall admit  upon the register any person who  is of good conduct aud repute (as  shown by a certificate signed by a  magistrate or clergyman), and who'  produces from any College or  School of Medicine within Great  Britain, Ireland, any of His Majesty's polonies or, Dependencies,  or any Province of Canada, a diploma of qualification as a.doctor of  medicine. Any person so admitted  to the register, however, shall not  be permitted to practice as a duly  qualified medical practitioner in city  municipalities, as defined by thc-  ' Municipal'Clauses Act.''.'  The following appropriations  have been .asked to be included in  the Provincial estimates for this  district, exclusive of maintenance,  lor this season:  Repair to wagon road, Atlin to Wright, Boulder  and Birch creeks : $2500  Spruce creek wagon road,  'aboiit 5 miles    1500  Repairs and improvements,  McKee   and   Fourth   of  July creek trails '..   iooo-1  , Improving the Fan - TaiL  trail, and marking same  for winter   2500  Pine, Lock-up, etc    :ooo  Atliu aud Pine schools...... 3000  Atliii hospital   1600  The welcome intelligence was rer  ceived by mail last night that the  bond upon' the Lakeview group of  mineral claims"'"was about to be  taken up by a Pennsylvania company.

It is expected that, work will be  begun on the property within.a few  weeks.  F. C Garrison, one of the members of the Canyon Creek Hydraulic Partnership, arrived last Friday.  He brought iu a small sawmill  plant and a Pelton Wheel, for use  on the property. There is abundance of mill logs adjacent to tbe  claims and the cutting of sluice-bos  lumber will occupy the company's  time till the season opens.--  ������I  JttlJll<iM'lm*>��iil   V j-'   V"- -*'���'* '   ' ��� I- ���.I'-.V/'i'Av .(��� ''-'**.-.'X*^ ATLIN, B.C.p-SATijKDAV,  APRII  ^  5i  i9<>?~  '..Il  The Atlin Claim.

Saturday, April 5,' 190:  Now that the matter of tlie employment of Oriental labor in our  mines has bet-.i 'tramjually .���settled  and has practically 'passed into  history, we believe, with our esteemed citizen, Mr. John Kirkiand,  that tlie time is opportune for the  ��� '���'���'���'������' ���'-'��� ' "���'" .t>t-io plan for the  .!':''-'- ���'������'' ' against the  *!��� ' ���' ,.'.-.

At the present stage ot the camp's  development���when  placers are almost exhausted anil the hydraulics  not yet out  of their initial  or nonprofit-bearing stage ��� it would  be  worse than' madness to endeavor to  ' lay down a 'hard and fast- standard  of wages,   as   was  intended   to  be  done in. the  formation  of a Union  last   summer,   when   there   are so  1 many grades of labor and so many  ��� circumstances to be taken into con-  . sideration in its employment.  It is pleasing to note from the  statement of appropriations asked  for from the Government, which  appears in another column, that the  Atlin Hospital has not been forgotten; and that the" sum of $1000 will  be, in   all   probability, set apart for  its'use.        ' '      . ���  - There' are very few of the citizens in' the district who fully realize the value, and importance of  this institution to the district, or  the fact that .- it is a charitable institution,'purely and simply. It  is an oiTshuot of the Presbyterian  Church, yet absolutely non-sectarian, and through, the untiring efforts of our late esteemed ' pastor,  Rev. J. Pringle, the hospital has  been brought to its present state of  perfection. Thesupport which has  been accorded to this worthy institution is a terrible reflection on the  people of the district, and nothing  but the united action of the I  people will make amends for past  remissness. During last year the  Hospital's record shows 800 days'  . ,'j.

The- Bill is introduced by the  Attorney-General, and provides lor  four additional members. Vancou-  couver Island loses two and tire  Mainland gains six members. The  population of the" Province in 1S91  was 97,613 and in 1901 is given as  177,272. Several new districts are  created and the following is the  detail and representation of the different districts:  Victoria City 4   -  Saanich .��� -. 1  Esquimault  1  Cowichan  ' 1  The Islands  .- .1  Newcastle  .-. 1  Nanaimo 1  Alberni ��� r  Comox !..j  Delta r  Chillawhack    1  Dewdney '  1  Richmond ���....:: 1  New Westminster 1  Vancouver City ... 5  Atlin..: 7 1  Skeena : .' 1  Cariboo 2  Lillooet 1  Yale. 1  Kamloops    1  Okanagan 1  Similkameen 1  Greenwood r  Grand Forks 1  Revelstoke  1  Slocan 1  Ymir 1  Nelson City 1  Rossland City  1  ,   Kaslo :....���-. 1  Columbia 1  Cranbrook..'. t ���  Fernie .' 1  Total  ....42  As will be noticed the Electoral  D'strict of Cassiar has been converted into' two separate districts,  thatof Allin and Skeena.  Another matter which may have  some bearing upon minor affairs in  this district is the introduction of a  Bill by Mr. Stables, entitled, "An  Act to Amend the Medical Act,  1898."  In reply to Mr. Stables' enquiry  about the appointment of a County  Court Judge for Allin, the Attorney  General said: "Correspondence has  been carried on with the Dominion  Government towards that end.  Strong representations have been  made that the appointment be made  immediately." Inreply lo the Jap  question, Mr. I.hmsmuir said: "The  Government have no power to prevent them going into the district,  but have written to say that they  in no way approve of their introduction there." .     <v  Mr. Clifford has asked for a return of all correspondence between  the,Provincial and Dominion Governments regarding the appoint-.,  moat of a County Court Judge".'for  Atlin.
