Constitution for Transvaal and  Orange River Colony.  SVEABQRG   FORTRESS   IN    REVOLT.  : Laborers Strike at San Francisco-  Roosevelt Wont be Candidate  ���Seattle to Own Tram Lines-  Debs Hints at an American'  Revolution ��� Spanish Royalty  Visits England.  [Sl'EOIAL-TQ THE  CLAIM."!  London, Aug. 2.���Mr. Alfred  Beits, the late South African diamond millionaire, left the sum of  $125,000 to Dr. Jamieson, who was  the leader of the unsuccessful Jamieson raid into the Transvaal  in '96.  London, Aug. 2.���In the House  Commons today Winston Churchill,  Under-Secretary for tbe Colonies,  announced that there would be no  delay in granting a constitution to  the Orange River Colony, as well  as to the Transvaal. .The guiding  principle of tbe ministry in granting  responsible government, he said,  was to make no difference whatever  ��� between Britain aud Boer. Right  of suffrage would be'one basis, one  vote, one value, and six months  residence would qualify for voting.  Either Dutch or English language  would be used in the transaction of  public business.  Helsingfors, Aug. 2.���News of  the revolt at Cronstadt proves true  and intense excitement prevails, especially as the mutiny has extended  to the warships. It is announced  that the sailors, will refuse to fire  ' upon the mutineers who are ashore  at Sveaborg. The authorities at  Cronstadt have removed all the  breech blocks from the guns of the  fleet stationed there and concealed  them ashore.  St. Petersburg, Aug. 2.���Despite  the. efforts of the Russian government, assisted by its police and  military machinery, the manifesto  of the outlawed parliament, which  met-at Viborg lass week, has been  distributed and read in every quarter of the Russian empire. The  ���'manifesto' contains many daring  statements. It bears the names of  the many members of the parliament  who issued it and most forcibly denounces the. grand dukes and the  land, owners. The document concludes with the ominous words:  "Down with the government. Down  with the emporer. Long live the  dear, free Russian people." Warrants, charging them with treason,  have been issued for the arrest of  those who signed the manifesto.      ���  St. Petersburg, Aug. 3.���The  government is panic stricken over  the continued success of the Sveaborg revolt. Sveaborg, the Russian  Gibraltar, is completely in the hands  of the revolutionists, who sunk, two  torpedo boats and-ovcrwhelmingly  defeated the government troops and  warships in the bloody battles of  Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday  revolutionist workmen urged a general .strike and il is slated that the  population is responding to the call  to arms. Revolts are expected to  occur at the Cronstadt and Sevastopol fortresses at any minute.  ' San,Francisco, Aug. 2.--Sixteen  hundred laborers and all the mechanics engaged in rebuilding the  street railways of this city have  gone on strike. They ask for an  increase of wages,- that 5S hours  constitute' a weeks' work, and for  the re-instatement of several men  whom the}* allege were discharged  for their connection with unionism.  Oyster Bay, Aug. 2.���President  Roosevelt, in order to set the, question at rest forever, today made a  formal statement that he will not be  a candidate for a third term.  Seattle, Wash.*, Aug. 2.���The  city council, after a prolonged agitation, has finally adopted a plan  for the municipal ownership of all  street car lines within the city limits.  St. Louis, Aug. 2.���Eugene V.  Debs urges in most impassioned  language the release of Moyer and  ���Haywood,-?;he two officers of the  Western Federation of Miners who  are held on charges of murderous  conspiracy. Debs' says the men  must be released even if it causes a  revolution in America.  Cowes, Aug. 2.���King Alfonso  and Queen Victoria, of Spain, arrived here today aboard the Spanish  yacht Geralda, which was escorted  by an armored cruiser. ' Salutes  were exchanged and there was a  great display of flags as a welcome  lo their majesties, who will remain  here during the racing week. King  Alfonso intends to build a yacht to  compete here in 1907.  Paris, Aug. 3.���Edmund Rousse,  a member of the French Academy  who acted as counsel for members  of the Commune in 1S71, is dead.  Chicago, Aug. 3.���It was given  out yesterday that the last saloon  licence has been issued until such  time as this city shall have nearly  doubled its present population. Tbe  licences issued number 7,353. The  Harkin ordinance became effective  today and no more saloons will be  permitted in Chicago until the ratio  is one saloon for every 500 people.  New Arrivals.  . The following is a list of those  who recently arrived in Atlin per  the Scotia:    ...  July 31���J. Kirkland, W. Queen,  W. P. Grant, Rev. J. W. White,  Judge Young, Hon. R.

Why use inferior gasoline when  you can get 76 and 86 per cent, at  Regan's.    Atliii and Discovery.  Premier McBride's Visit.  Enthusiastic Meetings Held at Discovery and Atlin.    .  The Hon. Richard McBride, Premier and .Minister of Mines- for British Columbia, arrived in camp by  Tuesday's boat. He spent Tuesday,  Wednesday and Thursday driving  about the various creeks and inspecting the mining operations being  carried on.  ��� When Premier McBride addressed  a public meeting at Discover}' on  Wednesday evening, Arctic Brotherhood hall was well filled by people  who gave him a hearty reception.  Tbe applause that punctuated the  speech" gave evidence of the keen  appreciation of the. good points  scored by the minister. Mr. Jules  Eggert, president of the Conservative Association, was in the chair  aud the local member, Dr. Young,  M.P.P., who gave a short and forcible address, was very warmly applauded.  The chairman opened briefly by  referring to the Premier's trip as a  good practical way to get an insight  into local requirements and conditions. He also incidentally pointed  out the satisfactory manner in which  the present government had put the  finances of the province on a sound  business basis. .  The Premier in opening dealt  shortly with the points brought out  by the chairman, showing how from  a condition borderingon bankruptcy,  the McBride government had lifted  the province into favorable financial  standing and that for the past three  years there has been a substantial  surplus in the treasur}'. He mentioned Dr. Young in eulogistic terms  showing his devotion to the interests  of Atlin district and the good work  he had accomplished including the  recent amendments to the Placer  Act. Referring to the general policy  of the government the Premier showed that instead of being under the  thumbs of corporations, they had increased the taxes on railways and in  other ways had shifted the burden  of taxation to the shoulders of. those  most able to bear it and relieving  the poor man as far as possible. The  result of tho various bye-elections  proved that the policy pursued met  with public approval. Tbe government, by forcing the lumbermen to  saw the timber within the province,  had been instrumental in enormously increasing ihe sawmill industry;  they had encouraged fruit growing  and agriculture, had discouraged  charter mongers, , brought about  economies in tlie civil service and  had brought stability to mining by  refusing to tinker.with the legislation affecting that industry. He defended the Kaien Island deal, showing that it was a business-like bargain in the bestinterestsof thepeople  of the province, and incidentally he  mentioned the fact that he bad received a telegram from Victoria  stating that the charges made by the  Vancouver World iu the Pendray  matter had collapsed when inquired  into before the Royal Commission  and Mr. Higgius had been forced to  admit that after hearing the evidence  he was obliged to change his opinion.  Upon the Premier resuming his  seat the audience was invited to ask  any questions or bring up auy matter that is was desired to place before him as Minister of Mines.  Nobody volunteering  Dr. Young  said be had heard that men were  coining here lo call the government  down ��� and so he added, "If any of  those fellows have anything to say  get up and do it now.''  "They can't do it Doc," remarked  a voice and the audience laughed  heartily.  Dr. Young then made a brief  speech testifying to the good legislation carried out by the government  and liow they had acted in tbe best  interest of the district. He answered a number of questions for information on various matters and invited  anyone to make suggestions .that  might be useful when be went back  to the next session of the legislature.  In reply to Mr. Norman McLeod,  Dr. Young said that the policy  pursued today was to cancel hydraulic leases where the ground  was not being worked.  Mr. Conroy rising, to make a general'charge of favoritism against an  official, Dr. Young said he had already, when the rumor was brought  to him, asked for a specific. charge  in writing but no one had ever done  this.  The Premier remarked that, if a  specific charge was made he would  have it- thoroughly investigated.1  He also pointed out that in regard  to. troubles over some of the leaseholds, these leases had been granted  before the present government came .  into" power and some were in' lili-  gation. The government could not  step in till there was some breach of  the statute that justified cancellation  and where the courts were dealing  with ground the government had to  wait till litigation was settled.  The meeting broke up with a vote  of thanks to the chair and applause  for the speakers of the evening.  On Thursday night the Premier  addressed a meeting at the Kootenay  hall which was well attended, many  ladies being present. The speaker  touched on practically tbe same  points as at Discovery.  At the close of the Premier's address Mr. Woods took the platform'  to refute the attack made on the  Gold Commissioner the evening  previous, and at the same time he  wished himself put on record as declaring the McBride government  the weakest British Columbia has  ever had, declaring it was governed  by the Socialists. Mr. Woods spoke  at some length on this question and  in concluding moved a vote of confidence in Mr. Fraser, which was  seconded by Mr. Wheeling and  unanimously carried.  Before the close of the meeting  the Premier answered Mr. Woods  and his attack on the government,  and in a'few. words made many iu  the audience shake hands with  themselves that they had not made  an attack. He thought that Mr.  Woods' whole speech was "Wa-wa."  The Premier, Mr. Macrae and;  Dr. Young left at midnight Thursday for Taku, where the R.N.W.M.  Police launch Gladys awaited to  take them to Carcross, at which  place they were to be met by His  Hon. Gov. Mclmiis. ATLIN,    B.   C,    SATURDAY,    AUGUST    .•,    1906

AV.   PoLriAKD.    (t«axt.    KDiToii-.MANAfir.i:.
The   recent   quartz   strike on the
Wheaton river in   the   neighboring
Yukon   Territory,   and   mentioned
elsewhere, brings before us a .strong
feature  of our own mineral laws as
compared with those of the Yukon.
In our own province it is imperative   that   the  locator ol a mineral
claim shall use stakes no',  less  than
iour feet in height and squaring not
'less than four inches.    In places in
British Columbia this provision, has
apparently worked   a'seeming hardship when the prospector lias had to
pack the pests with which to  stake!
a claim up over a mountain   range;
and   the   result   has  been   several
heavy lawsuits iu   which'lhe:   provision has been up-held.
In the Yukon, however, a inan
may erect stone monuments if he is
above timber line, or where the
timber is not easily available.
On the Wheaton river all the
claims are high up the mountains,
u great deal of the limber has at
some time or other been destroyed
by fire, and the result is that every
claim has been slaked bv ereclinsr
monuments. The mountains are
covered by rock slides and it is impossible to locate the monuments
unless you happen to run right on
top of them.
A great deal of dissatisfaction exists among the prospectors on account of tbe use of monuments, and
practically all agree that the compulsory use of stakes would be more
satisfactory all round.
One man in particular spent a
week prospecting a sidchill—he
looked all over for monuments,
staked and travelled forty miles to
record his claim, only to learn after:
wards that he had overlooked three
large monuments which' were only
distinguishable when within fifteen
feet of them by reason of the nature
of the rocky sides of the mountain.
The British Columbia provision
may seem'hardy but after all it
works for the benefit of the prospector.
endowed with that sort of plenary
power known in slang as 'the long
green.' Of this he had plenty, and'-
lie also had his instructions. In
fuel, from our information, he appeals to have had everything except
the brains necessary to carry his
project to a successful conclusion.
The lack of this most desirable requisite led him lo distribute (he
"palm-oil" he brought wilh so little
discretion as lo overlook two of the
most prominent officials. This de-'
plorably careless oversight led lo
