In our news columns will be  seen an account of a business meeting of the Pine Creek Tunnel Syndicate, held last week. It is gratifying to obseive the unanimity of  effort on behalf of the Syndicate  and the leaseholders.  We wish Mr. Switzer ever success in this, the first local Atlin  promotion. .Mr. Switzer has been  identified with the property since  its inception aud is familiar with  every detail.' The property is one  that very strongly recommends itself,, not alone on account of its en-  couragiug prospects, but from its  natural position as regards waier  facilities, pressure and dumpage.  ���We are credibly informed that Mr.  Switzer is iu touch with underwriters of the highest standing in  his native state.

Unfortunately that Committee did  not look at the matter in the'same  light as we do, consequently it was  decided to leave that question as  it stood. It is an acknowledged  fact that Atlin's future, in the main,  is dependent upon its deep lead  placers, and the question of Crown  Grants as against Leaseholds is o:ie  of the utmost importance.  Mr. J. B. Hobson, manager of  the Cariboo Hydraulic Mining Co.,  is using every endeavour to bring  influence to bear with the object of  getting the Government to reconsider its decision. He cites the  case of California, where in the  early days of. its deep placer development it was absolutely necessary  to give and make every inducement  aud facility' for the obtaining of  capital. Upon the passage of the  Act, in 1872, granting the same  privileges as obtained to the quartz  miner in the issuance of Patents,  over $100,000,000 was interested,  which in the course of ten years  was yielding from ten to fifteen  million dollars annually. Under  the present conditions existing in  this Province the prospector is practically debarred from touching deep  placer ground when he is ccmpelled  to pay out annually $1000 iii work  and labour or forfeit his .rights, consequently he has to seek other  countries where the conditions are  in his favour.  We are gratified to learn that a  petition' was this week presented to  , the Atlin Board of Trade, petitioning the Government to'endeavour  to incorporate in the amendments  the issuance of Crown Grants on  deep placer ground, and that its'endorsement has been almost unanimous.  " Variefv," it is said, " is the  spice of life," and truly variety, in  lhe very essence of the word, may  be found in our beautiful Province  and especially in our surrounding  lislrict of Allin.  We have heard much of its mineral wealth, which is now upon a  sure foundation, but as all the world  are not miners, Nature has given us  treasures with a lavish hand'which  may fill the desires of all.  In the East our district has been  noted as the "Tourists and Sportsman's Paradise." That il is one of  diverse scenery, from the picturesquely b-jautiful to the supreme':/  grand, no one who lias seen it will  deny, but as a'"Sportsman's . Paradise"���the term seems incongruous  ���nevertheless, it is to say the least  a very much tn be desired country.  I have travelled a great deal over  the wilds of British Columbia and  only in two places have I met men,  who professed to be sportsmen,, dissatisfied with their field and its contents. Both instances were unjustifiable accusations. One of these  was Allin. We must .remember,  howeve-, that iu '98 and '99 the  whole country was overrun with invaders of Nature, aud for a radius  of 12 miles or more from our city  the tents of men 'were thickly  strewn. Small wonder is it that  the game is driven off, not to be  found within half a day's tramp  from home,1 though' it is quite within the range of possibility it might  be. At any rate abundance of  small g' me is to be had, in its season, within so easy range. A very  wise provision it-is that Nature so  preserves her animals and at the  same time cares for one of tlie great  attractions of our country. All men  are : ol seeking gold. There are a  few in the world who have plenty  and who are willing to spend it  freely in the pursuit and enjoyment  of sport. In addition to the capitalist who will help develop our mineral resources, I fee! sure thai if  Atlin were brought before the sporting world as a field for big game  hunting, we should be able to attract men of means here who would  be a great benefit to our tradesmen,  and, glad to avail themselves of and  pay well for the service oi those  who could act as guides. In life,  the greater lhe difficulties lo be surmounted tlhe more highly valued is  the prize captured, and the same  holds good in the hunt.' WVliave  in our district abundance of game  and trophies which would excite  the admiration , of men .who a:e  aiiUuKii;y; in s:;oii mailers.

Partridge," alias Sailor Bill; alias  Bakir   Bill, as   he   was   commonly  called    by   experienced   miners  in  this camp, during his stay in Atlin.  1 see   by this letter   that Eaker Bill  is trying to get some   free  advertis-  ' ing by   attacking  the Atlin Mining-  Co.'s   property   on   McKee creek.  This does, not surprise mc, nor will  it those'who know anything of him.  Through   the   medium of   your  "columns, with    your   kind   permis-  ���sion   I   should   like  to   put'a few  questions:   ���  ist.  Who is this W. J. Partridge,  with the many aliases.   .  ��� 2nd. What  has  he et-er clone to  help this camp in any way? ex-  "    "cept,      perhaps,    to help'Bob  ''   .*.     Flormau   float   the   Anaconda  group, which   he  sold to Lord  Hamilton.  3rd.  Where   has  he   ever made  '���  any   discoveries   or   where has  he opened up any property ?  4th.  Where has he ever benefitted  the citizens of this tow.n ���financially or professionally ?  .-. Ausw.ers   to  these questions will  undoubtedly be  appreciated "by the  "citizens of Atlin.  After he got through with Loid  Hamilton he looked for new fields  to work on, he came up to McKee  and introduced himself to me as a  mining promoter, as a man with  unlimited means. Pie "further gave  me to understand that if there was  any property on McKee creek to be  sold it would have to go through,  his hands or it could not be sold at  all. 1 told him then that McKee  creek was no "fake" property, and  that it would sell on its merits at  any time, I finally in formed him  that L personally, had no need ol  his services 011 the creek. About a  year ago he managed to get in some  stakes on the creek in the following  manner: I was running a tunnel  all winter and drifting on the hill, j 1 did not get 20 ounces for 4 men's  prospecting my ground, aud as tlie! work of six days, and I cleaned up  work was costing me a good deal of. in one week of six days no less than  money I swore my men to secrecy 1 61 oz. 10 dwts During my stay 011  as to'he result ol the work. When : the creek 1 look out over Hoo oz.  i got through with the work one of> fiom   Discovery,   and   made   good  'information, sneaks up , aud stakes  il out before*! got a chance. Then  he slaked two more lenses and came  to mc and told me I could have a  fourth interest in them. I thanked  him. but advised him I did not wish  him fin a partner and that he could  keep it all to himself. His scheme  was ���.<-> pool with mc on the creek  and let him sell the whole property.  On "my refusal to co-operate wiih  him .he was prepared lo abandon  the ground, but chanced on Mr. C.  Christopher and eventually sold .his  interest lo him.  In the letter, above referred to,  Fakir Biil "thoroughly .prospected''  the creek, he s-iys. He biought one  man wi?h him, whom lie started to  work sinking a shaft���this shaft  was sunk on one of my creek claims  "No. 7 below���he worked a couple  of days and each day he would  bring up a big prospect in the pan;  the hist day' that he worked he  brought up a pan contairing about  60 cents, which he stated lie got off  the bottom of his shaft. On this  man's return to Atliii I sampled the  .dump and found nothing in it, as  I well knew there was liule or nothing above bedrock. I got bedrock  in the shafbabout two feet deeper  with as good an average prospect as  on any part of the creek. This is the  ''Thorough" prospecting Fakir  Bill has done- on McKee creek���  one hole, 5 feet deep !  I have prospected the creek from  No. 10 below Discovery to Kklc-  rndo, which is 39 above, and every  claim above Discovery has been  worked with an average of an ounce  per daj- to the man. My estimate  ol" the gold that has been taken out  of these claims is $150,000, aud  that with the crudest methods of  working.  If the man referred by Partridge,  is meant for myself, who got into  debt at the. bank, I emphatically  deny it. By way of explanation I  uiighL say that Brogai, & Langley  contracted a debt of $4070 on some  ground they owned and I bought  them out by paying olT the indebtedness, making money out of the  same ground. Apart from this, the  third day I got bedrock���while  making my drain ditch���I took out  $So; from that day on every man  lepresented a dividend, and I was  paying my men S5 a day, too, I j  considered it a poor  clean  up when I  If Eakir Kill could have got in on!
