Many intending- builders  are holding- off commencing operations until  the ownership of lots is settled, but when  once the light und title to propertj is hxed  for a certainty, thej promise to push the  work to as oarlj a completion as possible.  The Government is making heroic eftoits  to (Httublish a relief to the present condition  of ahairs as speedily an possible. Mr. J". H.  Brownlee, the'Government land surveyor,  and his corps of assistants have already accomplished much m sti (lightening out the  tangle. In the ListiGO dujs they have surveyed, _the entue townsite, laid out tho  streets, etc.     ' ,'  We publish an authorized interview with  Mr. Bi ow ulee, w hich fully explains ltianj  questions that ha\o beeu giving considei-  able trouble and anxiety to intending pui-  chasdPs of propertj toi sometime past. Anj  one making impi ovements pun count upon  receiving full value ior his labors m case he  fails to bid 111 his propertj und ow neis of improvements can count upon being given every posmble advantage over outside competitors w hen the sale takes place, w Inch  should relieve the minds of many whohuve  expended confideiable laboi' and capital in  making impi ovements.  "Where Improvements, have been made,"  said lli'i Bi ow nlee, "the lots w ill be sold subject to the improvements up to tho time or  the salei Bona lide occupants of lots and  owners rtf improvements maj be assured  that outside competitor-, muRt pay them full  valuatinu for impi ovements in addition to  the price bid tor the lot. The valuation ol  the impulveirients will be made bj nijaell  and un experienced builder selected lij the  Gold Cflmnusiouer."  "Huldeis of lots are invited Io conxtilt the  blue print mat) of the town und to send in u  brief statement to me ol the valuation of  improvements on the lots not later than  Mu,v 10th. on blanks to be furnished. In cases  wheie the*'e i�� ntoie than one claimant to  the inii>i-tt\ omCnt" on a lot and it is sold to a  thinl purt.v appraisement will go to the pur-  tj proving hi�� oluim after the sale is over."  "The tow 11 ��f Discovery on Pine Creek  Vill neVt bo placed on the market, probabb  not before the llth of June. The general  conditions applying to Atlin w ill also appb  to Dixctlveiy, Taku Gilv and Surprise City,  which latter sales will follow after Jliseovorj  iu the Mi dpr named."

It is  the intention of the Government to reserve  horn sale ut least two lots in each block.  These lots w ill be leased to occupants at a  fair rental, us will also uny lots that mav not  living tho upset price at the auction sale "  "It is the intention of the Government to  muk6 considerable impi ovements iu this district, such as constructing trails, grading  streets, etc. Tho appropriation for this  work has beeu very liberal, but ut tho present time it is not uvailahe tor expenditiu e  I huve reason to believe, however, that the  Government Agent and Gold Commissionei  will authoiize certain urgent expenditures  111 lhe Very near future, such as grading the  business' portion of First street and constructing a wagon toud from Atlm to Discover.

Its general policy is to furnish  such news as the publishers can  gather from week to week.  We have done some little prospecting on the foregoing property  and secured some colors. But we  ��� have just scratched 'tlie surface as  yet and have no doubt as work continues a good showing will result.  Yet, while we have established  The Claim as a business proposition it is our intention to serve the  public to the best of our ability,  We desire to fulfill the first duties  of a newspaper and that is to supply the news. Too main- papers  think the first essential is to supply  advice. In our news columns we  will print nothing of an unreliable  nature, and will certainly refuse to  be a party to any schemes that have  for their object the booming of  any particular 'section of the district. Nor will we lend our ear too  .readily to reports of rich strikes, except gaod evidence is produced. We  may make mistakes. They will  not ba wilful ones.  Our editoridTtolumiis will espouse  all that makes for the good and welfare of the people of the district of  Atlin. We are bound to no party  ��r set of men, and will commend or  censure as we feel tlie occasion demands.

It is to  be hoped that at no distant date  some of the money will be spent on  the streets of the city and Discovery  road.  A 'mischievous report was set in  circulation during the week t^-'the  effect that the sale of town lots  would be postponed for another  month. Enquiries at the Commissioner's office elicited the statement that it was a canard.'  Our attention has been called to  the fact that there are a number of  sick people in the city who are in  need of proper attention. Whose  duty is it to attend to these cases ?  Something must be done; if not by  the government then by the citizens.  , An PIONEER.   ,.  On Saturday April'15th 11 7-lb.  baby girl'was born to Mrs.'Lo wry  at ' the' pioneer hotel, the ' Atlin  House. The event is especially interesting from the' fact that? she is  the first white baby born in Atlin.  The little^ stranger is lusty and  healthy and seems proud ''of her distinction. We understand, it is the  intention to name the' child Atlintoo  Marie.' Quite a number ��� of people  are of the opinion that the government could not dp better than present the little one with' a town lot,  and*in so doing honor our youngest'  pioneer.
