At a mass meeting of miners,  which was held in McDonald's  Hall on Wednesday evening last,  a petition was presented for signature, of which the following is the  text. George Pollay occupied the  chair and Harry Brown- acted as  secrelary. There was a very good  attendaneeof miners from all parts  of the district.  To His Honour Sir Henri G. Joly  de Lotbiniere, K. C. M. G.,  Lieut-Governor of the Province of British Columbia;  And  The Members   of the   Legislative  ���   Assembhr of the said Province,  . now in Session Assembled:  The prayer of-your Petitioners,  Free Miners .of Atlin district, in  mass assembled, herewith humbly  shewith, that - -  Whereas certain Hydraulic  Leases in the Atlin Mining Divi  sion of Cassiar district in the Pro  vince of British Columbia, are at  present being held without the  necessary yearly assessment work  being done thereon or the necessary  payment being made in lieu therepf  and  Whereas, great confusion has  arisen in the office of the Mining  Recorder at Atlin, B. C, through  the present system of accepting applications and granting and issuing  Records of placer and other claims  (in' many cases for the same  ground)and  Whereas great delay, inconvenience and loss have been occasioned to the miners through the  lack of power to settle disputes on  mining property being vested in  the Gold Commissioner, and the  fact that a competent Court to  settle said disputes sits only for a  short session during the summer  season,  The necessary steps ��� be taken in  the Legislature so that the-aforementioned Hydraulic Leases should  revert to the Crown and not be open  for re-location as leases, but be open  lor location by individual miners,  as we know that much of., the  ground at present so held is capable  of being worked in a remunerative  manner for years to come by'the  individual miner; and  That an improved system-of recording be inaugurated whereby  not more than one application be  taken or more than one record be  granted for the same ground, and  that \llie Officials in the Recording  Office he , held responsible foi the  proper carrying out of 'the said system, and that Gold Commissioners  be empowered and instructed to  promptly settle all disputes in respect of all kinds of mining property;  and ';,    ���  Your Petitioners will ever pray:  The petition has been extensively  signed and will' in   due   seasor.be  forwarded a copy each to the Lieut.  Governor ai.d  to  the  Government  at Victoria.  ���  �����*- ���   .  Anti-Oriental Resolutions.  Skagway has followed in Atlin's  wake- and. has, in mass meeting,  passed anti-Mongolian, resolutions.  From advice, it seems that two  Chinamen were being employed by  Mr. Broemser for help in his hotel,  the Astor House, and a committee  of citizens waited upon the business ^  men of Skagway topascertain their  feelings in the'matter, with the result that at a largely attended public meeting, held last week, the(.;.  following resolutions were unani-  mously passed:  ��� "Resolved, that it is the sense of  this meeting- that Chinese are not'  wanted and that every method not  averse to law and order should be  used to expel the Chinese and keep  them out of Skagway. And be it  further  "Resolved,   That   we,   the citizens of Skagway, in. mass meeting .  assembled, ask'   the   committee  to  further act for.us, granting it full  power."  .   May. Visit Atlin.  According to a despatch from  Victoria, it seems that Mr. Vy. M.  Brewer, the B. C. representative, of  the Engineering & Mining  Journal, of New York, is endeavouring to make arrangements with  the Institute of American Mining  Engineers that on their excursions  next year the Association include  British Columbia in its itinerary,  in which case Atlin will be included.  Freight Rates.  The merchants are anxiously  awaiting the Classification Lists of  the new freight tariff of the W. P.  & Y. Co. The general rate from  the Summit, which is noted below,  is to hand, but without the Classic  fication it is impossible to arrive at  a correct estimate of the charges  which may be imposed on goods  during the ensuing season: ,  Class 1, $1.90 per :oo lbs;  class  2, |i.66;'class. 3,   $1.42;- class 4, "  $1.19: class 5, 95 c; class,6, .90 c;  class 7,.75 c>.' class .8, 73c; class 9,  73 c; and class 10,70 cents.

With ��� the publication of the  ' ��� correspondence between the Dominion and Provincial Governments on  the subject of the County Court  Judge for Atlin district, and, together with information of a later  date from Mr. G. R. Maxwell,' M.  P., we arc now assured that a  Count}- Court Judge will be appointed for Atlin, to be resident  here.  With all due deference to contrary opinion, we'caiinot but attribute the greatest amount of success  for the probable issue to the Board  of Trade of Atlin, with, of course,  the endorsement of the Vancouver  and Victoria Boards of Trade. It is  matter of congratulation,- according  to the Deputy Minister of Justice,  that the Provincial Acts have a provision which permits of the appointment of more than one County  Court Judge for any judicial district. It will, in consequence, he  unnecessary to inflict upon us a  " Deputy," who could come and go  , as he pleased, in all probability,  and in the end leave us worse off  than we now are, to say nothing  about the reprehensible fact that a  "Deputy" is permitted to practice  his profession even though he be a  "Judge."  JUDICIAL AFFAIRS  The Appointment of a County  Court Judge.,  Some Interesting- Correspondence  Which, Has. Passed Between  the two'Governments.  At a mass meeting  held in Discovery on Wednesday   last  a   petition was presented and numerously  signed, petitioning the Government  to endeavor to  enforce certain suggested changes in   the office of the  Gold Commissioner with  regard to  hydraulic   leases.      With   the enforcement of these suggestions our  opinion  is,   that   so   long   as   the  leasehold clauses of the Placer Act  remain in force, there  is  no reason  why a leaseholder   should   be   exempt  from the same laws by which  the individual miner is governed in  the matter or assessment,  lay-over  and   such   like.      Again,    should  any leases be forfeited .for non-compliance with the regulations governing the same, the individual  miner  has   the   first   preference   to    the  ground when it can be shown to be  ground   capable   of  profitable exploitation   by   individual    miners.  The  petitioners, however, ask that  judicial   powers   be given to Gold  Commissioners,, not aware that the  Provincial Government has not that  power to give.    The older heads of  the district  should  remember that  the   judicial .powers   with   which  Gold Commissioners were previously-endowed   by  the   Mining Acts  was declared   " ultra yiris'-   by the  Supreme Court.    Were it  possible  to grant that power, as far as Atlin  is concerned, it would now be unnecessary   as the   appointment  of a  judicial official is assured.  The following copies of correspondence with the Dominion Government and the Provincial .authorities in the matter of a Resident  County Court, Judge for Atlin has  just been handed down by the At-  tornev-Geucral:  Ottawa, 2S1I1 Jan.,,1902.  To  the Hon.   the  Attorney-General of B. C, Victoria, B. C.  Siu:���Referring   to previous correspondence with regard   to the appointment   of   a  'resident   County  Court Judge Tor the Atlin district,  I enclose herewith copy of a  letter  which' the   Minister   has-received  from the Secretary of the Atlin District Board of Trade.    Will you be  good enough to  consider what  he  states in connection with the representations  of   the ' B. C.  Board of  Trade recently referred to you, and  report   for   the   information of the  Minister ' your, views   with   respect  to   the   necessity or propriety of acceding   to   the   request     of these  Boards  'of ' Trade.     I,: understand  that by reason of an   amendment to  your County Court Act- more -thaii  one County Court   Judge   may   be  appointed   for -.any ��� County  Court  within the Province, so that it may  be possible  to  appoint a Judge for  the Atlin district ��� without   further  Provincial   legislation,, although, of  course, it will be necessary to make  provision   for the salary here before  any appointment could be made.

I must apologise for   the   seeming  neglect of a  previous  communication  from you  on this subject.    On the receipt of  your letter I asked   the late Chief  Justice when reporting to the Government of British   Columbia upon  his work as'Commissioner at Atlin,  to deal with the  advisability of appointing ������ a-County.  Court   Judge.  Owing  to'illness for some time before his death the Chief Justice was  unable to make  this report.    From  inquiries   which   I   have  recently  made I am  convinced   that the representations made to  the  Honorable the  Minister of Justice in the  memorial bearing date of the Stir of  January, 1902, submitted to him by  the Atlin District Board  of Trade,  are  well   founded.
