' Through the kindness of the Secretary of the Nimrod Syndicate,  Limited, we are permitted to publish  the following letter from W.J. Partridge," alias ''Sailer Bill," alias  "The Champion Liar of the Yukon:"  ; March. 16th,' Toor.  To the Secretary,  ���The Nimrod Syndicate  London, JC. C.  Dkar Sir.':--T noticed a paragraph in the "Financial Times"  last, week speaking in favour of an  hydraulic property.which your com-  panypacquired on McKee creek in  Atlin. B. C. I told you once and I  tell -you again that this creek wjll  never pay. - A belter man than you  had...there worked it for two years  aud.iKran him into debt at the  bank, until he was clever enough  to/dispose of it to your .company  last year., .  '.You.may not   believe ' me   now,  but  :you-'  will      this   time   twelve  months. . I  am   going   to write an  Article on  McKee creek to the Financial-   papers   myself to   save  the  public   from   being misled.'   I was  on the creek   for some  time   and I  thoroughly prospected it so I know  something   of   it.     No   man   that  knows   his   business can contradict  what I shall say.���Yours faithfully,  W. J. Partridok.  i      10 Upper Bedford Place.  j .Russell Square, W. C.  The above letter is written in  Sailor Bill's usual style of bluff, as  all who know hiu-i can see- -it may  be taken for what it is worth. It is  evident that Partridge's knowledge  of McKee creek and its extraordinary yield during the last two years  must be very limited, royalty was  paid on 2729 ounces, representing  close upon $50,000, and was taken  out the first' season, and a much  greater amount the following season.. Hven then, but some 30 to 50  feet of the creek bed had been worked, and the benches' had not been  touched. Again, Partridge would  give everybody to know that lie  practically owned the earth when  he became owner of a group of hy-1  draulic leases between McKee, pro-1  per, and Atlin lake; however, it'  I was well known in camp that he!  was about "broke," and he had a  law suit pending, he sold out  those hydraulic leases���five miles,  he calls it���for $500 to Mr. Christopher, and now says that he  was well paid. Had he .spent  $500 in prospecting the ground he  would   have been   surprised at its  yield per cubic yard.  Shortly after Bill's ad\enl i:.to  camp, his first endeavor was to try  and impress the people that he was  a'veritable "saviout of the miners.'.'  ���He was " going to save them from  the tyrannies of an unjust and unscrupulous grovernineut. He did  nothing but "blow," and very soon  made himself the laughing stock of  the whole community.  ��� Because he did not get a "fat  job" from the Nimrod Syndicate,  to-whom' he had sold the Anaconda .  group,' he has had his kni e into  Loid Jvrnest Hamilton and all connected with him. . In our .-mall,  .opinion, he has shown himself to he  a man devoid of all ho-our or vlie,'  first instincts of a gentleman, fortunately, one swallow won't make  a summer, and, one.- man of .'-ailcr  Bill's stamp 'won't' mar the good  name of Atlin.  It is unfortunate that we,did not  receive- this communication earlier,;  so. that we-might have had an. opportunity of anticipating Rill's " ar-  ���ticle'!-i.n thi.London .journals. -  " No. 1."  Atlin Now the Owner of a Fire  ... Engine.  It Will Be Shipped  in as Soon  as  Navigation Opens.'  ' Through the efforts of Mr. J. D.  Graham and other gentlemen mentioned below Atliu'will soon be the  possessor of one of the finest manual  fire- engines manufactured. Such  was the intelligence submitted to  the public at the meeting held on  Thuriday evening. The engine  was puichased by Mr. Graham  at a very reasonable figure. The  details of the engine arc as follows:  Panel water box. over all about.9  feet long, by 2 ft. S in., by 19 in.  deep, covered. Two side brakes,,  each about 16 feel long, brakes to  fold up over engine when not in  use. Two brass pumps, about b)/>  in. hy H}4 in- stroke. Suction  hose, t,}A in. with brass strainer,  metal top frame carrying suction'  hose. Two hose discharges. Drag  rope and reel. Two nozzles. The  engine is mounted on four wheels,  and weighs, complete, about 1S00  pounds. Keel for hose and 1000  feet ol gum and wax-treated cotton  "Arrow" brand fire hose, 2 in. inside diameter, with all necessary  couplings.  The thanks of the citizens are  due to the following gentlemen lor  the valuable assistance rendered to  Mr. Graham: Messrs. Clifford and  Stables, M. L. A.s, Thomas Deasy,  Chief, Victoria Fire Department,  W. Wallace Grime, J. Healhorne,  C. P. R. Co., Victoria, K. C.
