Trie first'installment of" tHe'five-  stamp mill for the Nimrod Syndicate arrived in from 'Bennett on  Sunday " and is now resting on  Rant avenue, opposite the assay of-'  fice of the. company. The > remiin-  der of the plant'is expected in today. Included i-i the outfit is a  , five'-stamp'mill, -purchased -in San  -~ JPraucisco, r'urned out by the Union  Iron Works of that city. The large  hoist, boilers and pumping appliances were manufactured at Vancouver,  and despite their-,trip -oyer.; the ice  look as bright as a cambric needle  The total weight is placed in the  vicinity of 20 tons, .and the rate  charged for freighting it in from  Bennett���70 miles���was 5 1-4 cents  per ft.  Considerable doubt was expressed  in town after the'arrival of'the first  installment of the mill; 'as to whe  ther it would be put in operation  immediately or not, owing to several legal technicalities hanging  fire. An interview with Mr.' Fether-  stonehaughyesterda3r, however, settles this poiut, and the mill will be  put up and operated as quickly as  human ingenuity can do it.  "When I'm ready to put up the  mill on the Yellow Jacket property," said Mr. Fetherstonhaugh,  "the mill will go .up regardless of  any adverse claims. The entire  plant has not yet- arrived, likewise Mr. T. E. Baruedd, who is  at present in Bennett and clue here  some time during the earl}' part of  the week. This gentleman will  superintend the erection of the  mill and the placing of the stamps  in position. His wide knowledge of  such matters renders him a valuable  acquisition by the company. Only  recently he returned to the coast  from Nelson, where he had been  engaged installing a plant. The  Dorothy Morton, Shoal Bay, is another of the numerous properties he  erected plants for. Yes, when he  arrives a start will be made."  It is well, fct our readers to mark  that this is the first' stamp mill 'ever  sent north of Juneau, a fact of  great - import to ' the " outside  world, :as it will show, better than  anything else, a promising field for  attention and investment.

' ���  ���  Renni Tippli and James Bateraan  arrived last evening from big Salmon en route to Ottawa and England, and are at the Golden North.  They have' but little to tell of Big  Salmon country, but speak as  though they know more than  they care to divulge. Mr. Tippli,  however, says:  "Livingston creek, the principal  tributary of the Big Salmon, on  which prospects have baen made,  has been staked its full length, but  there has been no development to  speak of, and the merits of the  country are not known.  "But some of the finest nuggets I  have seen come from that district.  Some of them are as big as a man's  fist. Whether the country is spotted, or that there is even any pay  dirt of uniform value in the region,  is to be ascertained.  "Not more than j 5 men are on  Livingston just uow."���Daily  Alaskan, April 3.  London., April 2.���The, Beers  seem lo be closing .around Bloem-  foutciiL.inuienaciug foice. Their  activity has already- intercepted direct communications between Lord  Roberts and Kunberley. The gue;  1 ilia nature of ihe'warfure is proving, very embarrassing to the British.  The War Office reports that Col.  Broadwood lost..seven guns and all  his baggage in an ambush laid .for  him by" the Boers on Saturday. The  casualties numbered,350. The trap  was(laid near the ' Bloemfonteiu  waterworks,, .22 miles from town,  and worked only too well. ^ Of U  battery, all are missing, except Major Taylor and a sergeant-major.  The strength of the enemy was estimated at from 8,000 to 10.000, with  guns. On receipt of the news Lord  Roberts 'Ordered General French to  the spot with two cavalry brigades.  T Orders have been received - at  Cape Town for the Eighth division  to be disembarked and ..sent north  immediately on its arrival there. >  The sending of the Transvaal  prisoners'to St. Helena is arousing  the-anger of the Boers, who threaten, to retaliate by sendiug British  prisoners to Kdhiatzpoort," the worst  fever den in South Africa.  The Queen having deemed it desirable to commemorate the bravery  of the Trish regiments in the recent  operations in -South Africa, has  been graciously pleased to command  that an Irish regiment of foot guards  be lormed under the designation of  the Irish Guards.  Methuen telegraphing from Bos-  lof, in the Orange Free State, a little northeast of Kimberley, says:  "Surrounded Gen. Villebois Mar-  euil and a body, of Boers to-day,  April 5th; none escaped. General  Villebois and 7 Boers killed, 8  wounded, 50 prisoners.  London, April 6.���Lord Roberts  reports that five companies of British troops have been captured by  the Boers near Mafeking.  THE  QUEEN   IN   IRELAND.  Dublin, April 6.���Her Majesty  arrived on the,4th at Kingston and  immediately went on to the Capital.  Before entering, the ancient ceremony of delivering up to the sovereign the keys of the city gates  was gone through. The reception  accorded Her Majesty was grand  in the extreme, not a single jarring  note having occurred. It is estimated that nearly one million of  people are in Dublin The city is  gorgeous with flags and decorations.  All party differences are cast, aside  for the time, the sole end and aim  of all being to tender Her Majesty  a right royal welcome. Fireworks,  bonfires, and all the outward demonstrations that can possibly emphasize love and loyalty are in full  blaJt,   and  is' doing itself proud.  -'    ATTEMPT  ON  THE   PRINCE.  -Brussels,-   April   4.���Whilst   the  Prince and Princess of Wales   were  i    _ f  at the rail way .station here to-day,  en,route to Copenhagen to attend  the celebration of the birthd-iy of  King Christian of Denmark,'- ��i  would-be assassin fired two shots  from a revolver at the Prince, fortunately without hitting any one.  The assassin was quickly knocked  down by the station master and secured. He Droved.to be a Belgian  youth named Jean Baptist Sinido,  of evidently weak mind," and imbued with Anarchist theories. .The  Prince aud Princess took the affair  very coolly, aud proceeded on their  journev. Horror and indignation  has been expressed at the attempt-.,  ed crime all over Europe, and the  Prince r is smothered with cojigratu-���4  lations on his escape.  RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.  J. M.   Heney.   the   railway   contractor    in   an,- interview    with   a  Daily Alaskan   reporter last week,  announced that trai. !:la\ ins- on  the  ixtension of the White Pass& Yukon  road,   beyond  Carib.ni,   will -begin  about April 10, aud now that spring  has come and work can be  done  to -  advantage along .Lake Bennett,   1,-  500    men   are. to  be   thrown   into  action there just as soon as possible.1  He said further-: - "  "I have 750 men 'employed on  the extension at present, and have  sent to the Sound for 2,000 more.,  Every man that .applies is being  engaged. It is the intention to  rush the work, and we hope to  have the track completed so cars  can go through from Skagway to  Closeleigh by the latter part of  July. Three htindred and fifty  men of my present force are working along Lake Bennett.  "Five thousand eight hundred,  tons of rails, nearl}- all that will be  needed in building the extension  beyond Bennett, are now ou the  ground at Bennett and at Caribou,  the greater part being at Bennett.  More rails are on the way. In all  there will be 6,000 tons.  "The  rails  are    from    Chicago,,  where they are made by the Illinois  Steel Company.

A MEMBER   FOR ATLIN  ."        ' DISTRICT.  The electoral  district  of Cassiar  contains   something " like'   164,000  square   miles ��� juore    than    the  area of Great Britain';   and   at present returns   two  members  to  the  Legislature.    The coast district and  the Atlin district are   further apart,  judged by lack  of means  of communication,  than are Yorkshire and  Ontario.      They   have   nothing   in  common; " the' great staple  of the  southern district   being 'salmon,   of  the' northern, minerals.    The whole  district is   one  of magnificent  distances, with the crudest  and   most  unsatisfactory means  of intercourse  between even its centres of population:     Under     the    circumstances,  there can be  no reasonable excuse  given whv this district  should   not  ' have a member,selected from Atlin.  One who is   a .resident here., .The  district, as at present constituted, is  tfar  too  large for canvassing by intending candidates.   An entire summer and an expense out of all proportion   would   be consumed in the  attempt to meet all, or even   a  majority, of the electors.    A good man  ���and   theie   are   man}-���living   in  ' this section,   understanding  all  its  requirements aud   having  his   own  personal interests here, would be invaluable   to represent us, but, pray,  what would he" be   likely   to  know  about the wants and wishes  of the  salmon-canning  electors     of     the  coast?    Inversely, ' what    would   a  representative    from     there'   know  ahout the wants aud wishes for  the  better carrying out  of the  mining  development   which  is  the  raison  d'etre of our   existence?    Probably  nothing'.    Our population   and   re  sources arc growing and   will   continue to grow.    We are  numerous  enough    a 1 read j-   to  command   the  services of one, and possibly very soon  two members.  If ever a community  was self-contained, with one central  definite object in view,   certainly   it  is   Atlin,   and to carry out our legitimate aspirations it is essential that  we have a   member  solely  devoted  to the furthering of the interests of  Ihis'portion of Cassiar district  reached out for the legitimate fruits  of their victory, only to find that  they had been forestalled by their  supposed friends, the Russians. The  Japs are a,proud people. They object to being made a catspaw for  Russia to draw her chestnuts out  of the fire with, and it is fully expected that within ra month they  will have taken the initiative' iri"a"  war which will probably embroil all  the large powers of Europe.  In   spite of the Czar's peace proposals  and the Peace Conference at  The Hague, which he engineered,  Russian    diplomacy    " for     ways  that are dark  and  tricks  that  are  vain,"     has  'continued  unaltered!  This, is evidenced by their late meddling in the affairs of Persia, a'step'  they would ii"t dared to have taken  only for Britain's hands   being   full  in   South Africa.    That the British  cabinet is   preparing for  eventualities  is  shown  by' the  ordars  sent  Lord Roberts to push "his   work   in'  South'Africa to a speedy conclusion,,  as the bulk of his   troops   may ;be  wanted elsewhere.'    The  enormous  amount of men and material Britain  keeps sending' to the Cape is not all  intended for the Boers.    The Boers  form an excellent excuse,   but   the  true meaning is, that the Cape is  "a  halfway house on the road to India,,  and the Suez Canal, as a ��� means  of  transit,,   is not to be depended on in  war times. '..'..  These rates are very reasonable and  should result in the securing of a  large amount of patronage.  ' Events may falsify the published  prophecy of Hewitt Bostock, M.P.,;  to the effect that Hon. Joseph Martin is dead, and will be buried as  rapidly as the electors of British  Columbia can get a chance at him.  A province that would tolerate the  uselessness of Hewitt Bostock and  assassinate the usefulness of Joseph  Martin, could get no government  w~��rse than it deserves. Hewitt  Bostock ranks as the most profound  disappointment of all the members  which Western Canada returned to  the present parliament.. His great  wealth and his good intentions have  SCOW BEEF AGAIN.  In the Small Debts court ou Tuesday   Bettinson ��� v.     Doelker,    civil  suit to recover ..'$45.    Plaintiff carries on a butcher business' at ' Pine,  aiid some time ago bought from; defendant 300 lbs. of tlie   now  notorious scow-beef at 15  cents   per  lb.  'According to evidence there was 110  attempt made to  disguise the ��� history, of-the  meat.   -It  was   frozen  when   "delivered, ��� and   looked   all  iright, but when thawed out'proved  :to be  tainted,'   unfit  for  consumption,    and   consequently   unsalable;  hence the suit to recover. ' Dr. Morrison, swonv said   he   had   bought  some   of   the   beef from   plaintiff,  found it unfit for human   consumption and full of "mickrobbies."   He  didn't,explain what said "rnickrob-  ;bies"    were,     but   admitted   they  would play   old .Harry   once   tliiiey  got  lodgiiigS'in the human internal  system.    The   defendant    tried   to  'prove that he was acting  as-agent  for one Mackay,.   and   consequently  was not personally responsible;   but  his evidence on this point being unsupported, it fell to the ground.-His  Honor gave judgment  in   favor  of  plaintiff' for. ,'$45,.     the    original  amount paid by. him for the   beef,  with- $10.50    costs.'    His\Honor  severely criticised the actions of all  concerned in handling or  disposing  of the scow-beef,   thereby  imperilling thepublic health, and intimated  that    the. matter   would - probably  be the subject of further searching  , investigation.

Questions which  have   been agitating the nations for  years are  apparently  coming  to a  crisis of which there appears  lo  be  no solution short of the dread arbitrament  of war.     All eyes are centred on Japan,   which   is  straining  every   nerve to be 111 readiness soon  to throw the gauntlet down   to  her  vast  enemy, Russia.    For this step  Japan has good aud  sufficient reason.

The telephone line arrangements  are being thoroughly reorganized  in order to meet the requirements  of its customers for the coming busy  season. The Atlin office will be in  the telegraph buildings, corner  Pearl and Second. The Pine office  will probably be at the post-office.  An extension of the line is- contemplated to Birch creek. The office  at Spruce   Creek Junction   will be  .working of the Sunrise Gulch hydraulic claims. These are situated  just this side "of" Pine" City, and ex-  ,tend down nearly to the halfway  .house. There are twelve 80-acre  leases in the block, besides nearly "3  miles of Pine creek claims, making  in all 1500 acres. Messrs.

Certificate of Improvement  War Eagle Mineral Claim.  FRANCE AND GERMANY,'  ��� 'This   week there have been wars  and rumors of wars in the hitherto  fairly peaceful dove cots of the classical Sawdust Alley and its precincts.  ���Gore  by   the  bucketful  has  been  threatened, and already one or two  ���small scraps  have eventuated.    A  "well-known   citoyenne of   1h  belle  France    had   lately   brought   into  town and installed  in  her palatial  residence in Sawdust Alley a young  Deutsche  fraulein.     National animosities  were subdued to business  -conditions,   and all went pleasantly  ior a few days, but such a coalition  ���could  not   possibly  have  the  elements of stability in it.    Complica-  ���cations rose, the proud Deutsche spirit  ���could not submit to French bossism  aud betuok herself away to another  maison de joie in the vicinity. Then  commenced  active warfare, Germany, backed by its new  allies,   made  ���a desperate effort, a la Buller at the  EDWARD BLAKE.  Mr. Edward Blake came from Canada with all the prestige of having  been the leader of the Liberal ��� party,  tJbere for many years���with the reputation of a singularly, acute/intellect aud of ��� fine oratorical powers,  says T. P. in the London Daily Mail.  But he has apparently been dispirited  ���probably by   the  ugly  divisions  and  the sordid' personalities   that  were characteristic of some  of the  epochs   in' his  own  party;   at  all'  events, he has remained obstinately  dumb. Tall,   stately in  demeanor,  with  a  singularly  handsome   aiid  striking '    looking     face.'     young  looking, no more than sixty years,  Mr.   Blake  is  a  noticeable   figure  anywhere;,   and    therefore   it  was  that the House had to notice���and  with  some pain���this   remarkable  looking man,'with all the outward  aspect of deep thought, keen intelligence and oratorical strength,   sitting isolated, silent, .and despondent  throughout all this long succession  of years.    He was, so to speak,   an  eloquent though unspoken tragedy.  When on Tuesday night this  silent  figure at last found speech, aud when  in 40 minutes he produced a  more  profound  impression  than   all  the  other speeches, and when there was  the thrilled silence that always prevails in the House under the spell  of a true orator, people almost rubbed their eyes,  and  wondered how  all this remarkable  power  had remained wasted and unknown during  all the years Mr  Blake had been in  the House. If he does not now command the attention of the   House  frequently, it will be his own  fault.  There  is   no  assembly  readier to  listen to any body worth hearing.

PICKED UP HERE AND THERE.  We were favored with a visit from  cur old friend Capt. J. Martin this  week. He has just returned from  his home in 'Peterboro, Out., rind  reports having had a good time. He  goes up to Spruce to put his claims  in producing older, and hopes to  make quite a killing this summer.  W. R- Lamlrcrt and W. R. Jackson, owners of a number of claims  on Pine creek, in the vicinity of 26  r below, arrived in Atlin on Wednesday afternoon. Eleven men, most  of whom are old- hands, were  brought in to work ,the various  properties "in which these gentlemen  are interested. Mr. Lambert spent  the winter in Vancouver, while Mr.  Jackson went to England.  Fully 100 arrivals have put in an,  appearance during the'week.   They  are mostly last year's birds  returning to the nest, but quite a few are  strangers, all of which -shows  that  'Atlin has not lost her attraction  as  a drawing card.  Get 3-our cold cured at Medical Hall.  Business   is   picking  up  at   the  Government offices and the officials  ' have   pretty"-" nearly   all   the  w>rk  they can attend to.

Bladgette, a practical hydraulic miner of long California experience, arrived in this week and  left for Wright creek, where he will  assume the position of working  manager of thePendugwig Hydraulic Mining Company.  Owing to the plans and specifications for the new Church of England edifice not being completed,  our promised description of the projected building will be delayed until our next issue.

Wallace & Dixon have secured  the contract for the erection of the  wharf for the B. A. C. at the foot  of Kant avenue. Work will commence oti Monday. '  Mr. J. M. Brownlee has removed  his private residence to the cottage,  corner of Rant and Second, occupied last summer by Dr. Monroe.  At the Board  of Trade  meeting  SOLD FOR WAGES.  T. J. Bethune's paper, the Globe,  started last fall for the purpose - of  bolstering him up in the candidature  for this district in the Legislature,  came to grief last -Tuesday. The  sheriff sold the plant, good-will, (if  any) for $140, and was bought in  by his'former employees���two very,  worthy gentlemen who have been  hanging on by their eyebrows trying to make ends meet.  Mr. Bethune will perhaps now  know, and others would do,well to  think-over, that papers in the north  cannot be run on wind. It takes a  fairly good bank roll to play the  part of publisher. A good advertising "patronage is essential; likewise, circulation. If these are not  forthcoming- you might as well try  to move a moutain with a jackscrew  as run a paper. The journalistic  graveyard is as.green to-day as it  ever was. '       . ,  Reports from the coast say that  Mr. Bethune intends corning north  shortly, make a settlement in the  matter, and,take the plant to White  Horse, .where, he saysj a better  field .is ahead of him.

Halverseu.    He was  so unfortunate as to   have  his  feet  frost-bitten, and * one  of them   had  to be amputated at the ankle.   The  stump  is  now   nearly   healed   and  Halverseu will soon have   to  leave  the hospital where he has had kindly care and attention.    The   unfortunate   man. is   a  widower,   with  three children,-who are, at  present  being cared for  by   friends.    He is  absolutely    penniless, ~andj.it  devolves   on   us   as  white  men   and  women, to see  that  something  is  done for him, and that soon.    First  and foremost, an artificial foot must  be had, costing at least $100.    How-  is it to be got?    Our  citizens have  responded grandly to   the  Patriotic  Fund Fl-ntertainments, with   the result that there is' now a bank credit  of about $300.   The total collections  for the fund in Canada top a  quarter of a million dollars.    Applicants  for relief, so far, something over 90.  Amount  available,    per  applicant,  562,400.    This  is  good,, and  as  it  "light   to  be.    Another  entertainment for the fund is   billed  for  St.  George's   Day, 23rd inst., and having been privileged to a peep behind  the  scenes,    we can   guarantee it  will be a first-class one, and will be  sure  of   a   large  audience,   as the  others were.    Wh',   not, by consent  of the committee  and   the  citizens  generally,   devote the   proceeds  of  this  entertainment to this most urgent and pitiable  case  which   confronts us right in our doorway? The  Patriotic Fund is in no need of our  immediate assistance.      This man  is.    Other performances for the Patriotic Fund  can   be given  as  the  season advances aud our population  gets more numerous.    It strikes us  that to bank  more  money  for^ the  fond whilst neglecting to help ameliorate this sad case,   would  be an  offence smelling rank   before  high  heaven.    We  know that an appeal  to the sympathies of our citizens is  always followed by the   glad  hand,  and.  since  case has come up before us deserving ' more immediate and charitable  consideration.'
