You deem it unnecessary to have  our Gold Commissioners empowered with authority to settle mining  disputes in view ol a County Court.  Judge being appointed for Atlin.  From a monetary point of view,  this is going from bad to worse:  whercus, if a Gold Commissioner,  capable as ours would- be, had the  power lo acl without restraint in  every instance, and received a liberal salary, it would offsel the necessity of County Court, solicitors  fees and other excessive charges  occasioned therein' in connection  with mining matters.

It is said that the Company's Manager is well satisfied with the outlook. The drift commenced by  the Norton Brothers early in the  .winter is being continued with tlie  view of determining the widlh of  the channel.

Saturday,- April 26, 1902.  A notice Has, for the last few  weeks been appearing in these columns calling the atlentiomof the  public to the fact that County Court  will sit in Atliii on June iotli next.  It is expedient that all those having disputes oil hand, nece'ssitaling  the intervention of the Court,  should file their .complaints with  the Registrar, Mr. E. M. N. Woods,  at the earliest possible date.  During the sitting bf'the Supreme  and   County   Courts   in Atlin last  year  and  until  this   date, several  cases were unsettled.    In  some instances it was owing to absence of a  Sheriff, while iii others'  it was from  failure of the  Court Stenographer  to extend  and  Hand over his notes  to the  Court.'-- Up   to   the time of  the death  of'the. Chief Justice, we  have reason "to believe' that  these  reports of unsettled cases and other  matters   relative; to   that official's  visit to Atliii "were never handed in.  Whether or-uotHtnsettled cases will  have to be.heard',, over.again, we do  not   profess:-to-'kiibw,   hut we do  know that such a  condition   of affairs as that  oi  last  year is a posi^  live disgrace,   arid .it   behoves the  Government to look - to ��� it  that  a  like condition'does not occur again'.  The   want ��� of  a  sheriff is a very  serious   nialter  aiid.is  pertinently  shown   by last   year's   business in  the inability to' execute such judgments as were-rendered,   and now  that many of the  parties .have left  the country the loss falls upon  the  individual without recourse.  AROUND CAMP.  Items of   General  Interest  to  Everybody.  Bad Rumour From Victoria ��� A  New Company Being- Formed  With' Extensive Powers.  We  note  with   pleasure in a recent   issue   of   the   Engineering  & Mining Journal, of New York,  that Mr. W. M. -Brewer, the  B. C.  representative  of that journal, Has  associated  himself with the North  Western   Smelting   and   Refining  Company,  a .Montana  corporation  interested   in  mining development  in this-Province, Alaska, Washington, California and elsewhere.   The  Company is  building a large smelting and converter plant at Osborne  Bay,    Vancouver   Island,   and intends lo develop   a   large   custom  smelting business   on   the   Pacific  coast.    Mr.   Brewer   will examine  and  report  upon   properties,    purchase ores,  etc.    His   duties   will  take him all over, the Pacific coast.  He has  always   had   a   favorable  opinion   of   Atlin,   and if  quartz  developments  prove up what is expected from the camp-we may look  for Mr.  Brewer's" company to have  extensive interests here.  Tin-: time is- ripe for the fun-  makers to devise ways and means  for. a-fitting' celebration, of- "Victoria Day," which conies four  weekij from today.  According to   Mr.    W.,.. Queen,  who   arrived   from   lhe  coast   on  Thursday of this week, the instructions ol John   Cunningham Brown,  quondam Minister of  Mines, in his  telegram of rSth of .September last,  to the Gold 'Commissioner   requiring   him   to   not give effect to the  charter of   the   Pine" Creek   Power  Co.,   the  Government,   in its  evi:  dent wish   to   legislate " Pro bono  publico,"    has     substantiated   the  then Minister's action.    If this report be true, it augurs  no good to  the property owners   on ��� Pine who  were   depending    upon - the   Pine  Creek Power Co.   for   their   water  supply.     We  give  the information  for what it is   worth,   but. have no  definite confirmation of tlie-matter.  It is  reported   that a company is  now being organized  in Vancouver  and Victoria  to lake up a bed-rock  flume right  on  Spruce  creek and  other water   and   timber  rights on  Pine creek. Work, it is understood,  will be begun early in June.-.. ,  Preparations for sluicing are now  being made on both Pine and  Spruce creeks to put through the  dumps taken out during the .winter.  Opinions "differ as to .the prospective values contained iii the dumps,  but it is coirceded that the instances  are rare where they- will hot pay  wages.  On Spruce ereek, below ioo, it is  reported that two men in sluicing  over their tailings,-.-took out $78  iu two days' run- In theneighbor-  hood of 100 below the miners have  banded together to construct a  flume with a capacity sufficient .to  carry all the water iu the creek and  the necessary lumber is being delivered on the ground. From the  experience of last year, in' cleaning  out a flume in another part of the  creek, the sum of S280 was taken  and it is expected that the present  combination will make a satisfactory profit as there is a very large  amount of gravel to be moved tributary to this flume.  The water on Pine creek is said  to be too low for the best results to  be obtained. From 'systematic  prospecting which has been done  on some of the drifts throughout  the winter, excellent clean-ups are  anticipated, but, as above staled,  the amount on the average will result in good wages all round.  Gold Run, in spite of the many  difficulties with which miners Have  to contend, will, it is expected,  make a satisfactory showing in the  camp's output. Stukey & Co.,  Crichton & Stubblefield, Thomas  & Smith, Martin, Clark & Co.. and  Howard & Bruuer are all on bedrock, managing to control the  water and taking out good pay.  The last mentioned partnership  struck bedrock last week with very  bright prospects. :'  Hydraulic    Mining"  *��?  Machinery,  HYDRAUUIC   DKRRICKS ��� From 3 to 10 tons lifting capacity.
