The Annual   Report   of   the  Department  rias Been Handed Down ��� A  Satisfactory Condition Jn  Mining1 Progress.  The Animal Report of^thc Mines  Department has come to'hand this  week. - It is an exceptionally good  report, and it is gratifying lo note  the prosperous condition of the  uiii'.ii g industry during tlie past  year. Thc-following extracts will  be'found interesting ;  "The mining industry has, during 1901, still maintained thai rapid  growth which has characterised it  since the inception of lode mining  some ten years ago. It is all the  more gratifying to be able to make  this announcement again this year,  inasmuch as reports to the contrary  have been so widely circulated that'  the impression that .T901 has proved  a disastrous year has gained much  credence, not onlv abroad, but even  within' cur ownborders. Statistics  are the best refutation of this impression. The statistical tables  show-that the value of the mineral  production of this Province for the  past year is greater than that of the  Yukon; lhat we have in our mineral deposits a "Klondike" . of our  own, and a permanent and growing  one at that. The Yukon is credited  with an output of $18,000,000,  while British" Columbia produced  $20,086,780.  The table showing the annual  growth of the mining industry  shows " that in the last leu years  the output p has increased from "$2,-  978,530 in 1892 to $20,086,780 in  T901, and the increase'has been  gradual aud steady, the result of  new properties added ' to the producing list each year, aud the ir.-  cieasing development of the older  properties."   ���  "The statistics1 show "that the  gold production of the Province���  including both placer and lode gold  ���for the past year was ol a value  of $5,3:8,703, which is an'increase  over that of 1900 of $586,598, or  equal to about 12 per cent increase.  This is the greatest gold production British ��� Columbia has ever  made. Tn 1900 the increase was  I2j4 per cent over the previous  year, aud the increase this year  over 1900 is 11 4-5 per cent, showing the glowing importance of the  gold output of the Province."  " As noted in the Report last  year, the Atlin camp was in the  transition stage from ordinary  placer mining to hydraulic methods  and it was expected that at least  two or three of the hydraulic companies would , be in .operation during the season of 1901. That such  expectations have,not been realized  is due largely lo lhe friction, which  was .probably ' inevitable, between  lhe individual miners and'lhe huge  hydraulic companies'. The owners  of individual placer claims have  rights which must .be respected,  and their - holdings1 must not lie  buried under hydraulic tailings;  but at the .same time it is a notorious fact that a mini her of these in-  rlividual claims, which arc worthless as placer claims, arc being held  simply to em harass the huge companies in the hope of being  "bought off." Is is n::t to be  taken as implied thai all arc thus  acting unfaiihybul many undoubtedly are, and the only apparent  remedy is the strict application of  the law that calls for continuous  representation. It has been suggested that many of the disputes  occuring could have been settled by  the Gold Commissioner if he was  given the lequisite power. Such  suggestions fail to take into account the limitation of the powers  of the Province by the B.N.A. Act, '  and the decision of the Courts that  the Province can confer only ministerial powers and . not judicial  powers upon its officers.  "The existing hydraulic com- ��  panies have also delayed matters  by mutual disagreements,'ending in  litigation, wheie'a slight application of the principle 'live aud let-  live* would have rendered a compromise possible. It is to be expected that these troubles have  largely worn* themselves out, and  that 1902 will see legitimate work  proceeded with.  The continued prospecting of the  benches has been encouraging, and  such work as was done by the hydraulic companies gave most hopeful indications. There does not  appear to huve been any new placer  ground of importance opened up in  this section, while the. reports from  the Chilkat Division indicate that  the new., discoveries of last year  have deep'bedrock, and they have  so far proved profitable; il is only  fair, however, to say thai lhe past  summer was so wet that flood  water prevailed iii the creeks most.,  of the short season,.preventing satisfactory work. As a riile; when  the individual placer claims began  to give out last year, the prospecting for lode mines really began in  this section, wilh lhe result that a  number of very promising prospects  have < been recorded and received  some slight development. Il is as  yet premature to stale how important these will eveiil'uallv prove to  be, but so far they'promise well.  Minor Accidents.  William Lock wood was the victim of a painful, though not serious,  accider.l this week. He was moving pipe 011 the Sunrise ground and  got his right hand badly jammed.  Yesterday morning, Mr. Grier,  of Pine, below Discovery, got mixed up in a land slide and got out  with a broken rib.

Id of this Water Clauses Consolidation Act, which stutos thut ** ovory record obtained liy tho owner of land oi' the  owner ol a mine sliall he deemed as appurtenant to the. land or mine in respect of  whiuh such record is obtained." Sub-sort: 2  reads as follows: "All assiirnmeii t.s transfers  or (.'onveyanoes permitted by law of any  inino . . shall be construed to have convoyed  and transferred, and to eoi.veyaud transfer  any and all recorded water privileges appurtenant to the premises nssijino.l. tr.uislerred  or conveyed," etc.  There is no evidence that anv member of  this original SO, except the plaintilf. Vulmer,  although lie Mies on behalf of himself ami sill  other members of tlie association, is claiming to be entitled in this nation to the Use oi  water from the Miners*'ditch. Some of the  claims of . tlie original ,sa have liaen worked  out or abandoned and sonic ot the original  SO. who left this district in 1 ho autumn of  I.SW.did not retm u, or at least tliere is evidence to warrant this inference.  He Fore statin"- my conclusions in  tho matter, I think it   inut.   unimportant  to mention  , that   although   this  water record is tor 2:i!)()  inches, the capacity of the ditch i.-, mil more  than JUUO inches, and the average iiuantity of  wafer carried by the ditch i> somewhat less  than KHin inches, probably from IWI) to 8'iQ  inches, as far as I eiin ascertain from the  evidence.  After careful consideration or the matter.  I am of the opinion that tlie defendants, the  -Vtliu-Willow Creek Co.. are entitled ton  lirst ohai'fre on the ditch, to the extent of the  amount, expended by thein. less tho items  previously mentioned as disallowed. I make  tho amount to be, less deductions. S(iB95.:il.  Astlie iiiitiiitjll'. i'almer has not disposed  of his claim, nor. iu my opinion, ot hi> interest in the. ditch. I hold that he is entitled  to the use of one slniee-lioad ol water in the  ditch, ho to make his own connection. Tlio1  connection must not be made witli tlie Clifford Ilium*, unless with the consent of the  defendant company, as. I hnvealroailv pointed out. tiiis fnriiieil no part of the original  scheme, but was purchased by t ho Atliu-Wil-  low Creek (Jo. from Clilford. To obviate  the necessity of a further accounting and  save further expense and litigation, I think  it advisable to lix the plaiutill's rate of purulent al ��2.1)11 per sluicc-heail.  With re,peer to the pusitioii of tho defendants. Queen. I'arrotr ami KiiIiium-, I have arrived at thn conclusion, not without some  reluctance, lhat they have no vij*ht of execution as a;rainst the ditch, but that they  must look to the members comprising- the  Willow Creek Miners' Association for payment, such association, in my opinion, having no corporate existence, and never had  any.  I   have   uiveu   .some   consideration   to the  ��� liiRstioa   of   costs   and    have concluded   to  make no order with reference thereto.  ^ Ai.r.\-AXi)Kn lli:si>Kitsux, .1.  ' The following, which was handed  down on .Monday, is constituted  part of the above decision:  On the application of the plaintiff  for further consideration of ihe rea  sous   lor   judgment,   the   plaintiff  and   lhe   defendant company both  being represented, I   have  come lo  the   conclusion   that  the  items of  $1750 for, lhe   Clifford   Hume and  S300   for   extension   of   the ditch  mentioned as disallowed should not  be disallowed, as, although   in   lhe  contemplation   ol'   the   paities   the  Clifford    flume -and   the extension '  were   not   in    the original scheme,  they were afterwards   included as a  variatio-i  of such   .scheme.    These  , two amounts will, therefore be added to the   amount   of   the  charge,  ���making the sum of .5.S745.54 instead  of $6695.54.  The plaintiff will therefore be allowed to take water from the Clifford-flume if he so desires.  I omitted to mention that some  deduction should be made from lhe  lien or. charge of ��8745.54 in respect of the water used Vv the defendants, the Atlin-Willo'w Creek  Co. There is not sufficient evidence  Lo warrant me in- coming to a definite conclusion as to the amount.  I therefore think, for this and other  reasons, that the Receiver should  hoi al this stage be discharged, and  I now authorize and direct him to  make such enquiries as he may  deem necessary to ascertain the  quantity ol water used by the defendant company since their taking  over of lhe ditch."  If there are other' parlies who  claim the right to use water from  the ditch, 1 direct the Registrar to  lake evidence with respect thereto,  at such time as he may appoint, on  or before .September 15U), 1902, or  such further lime as may. be directed by this Court.

From a careful perusal of this  judgment it is apparei.l that the  water goes with the ground, but  the actual "ownership of the ditch  is vested iu the Crown and cannot  bs claimed as individual' property.  The subsequent addition to the  decision allows the right lo lake  water from the ditch or flume to  any others of the original So besides ;the plaintiff. Palmer, at the  same price, viz.: $2.00 per sluice-  head, per day. Thus, the ditch is  practically in the same position as  it was when under the control of  the Co.-operative Association. Today, the Atlin-Willow. Creek Co.,  owning the greater number of the  original 80 claims, naturally, are  entitled to the larger amount of  water.     ���' '  We are instructed by one of the  representatives of the Atliu-Willow  Creek Co. to state that any miner  desiring the use of water may have  it on application to the company, at  the rate of $2.00 per sluice-head a  dav.

A Promising Property Being  Opened Up,  Almost   at a Cable's Length  From  ���    '  Atlin���Rich in   Freo   Gold���  The Rock of Ag*es.',  Bevis' mineral claim,-within  half  a:i hour's walk of Allin. is'showing  fairly   good    value   in   free milling  ore, ot" a character  very   similar- lo  that of the Ktigiuecr mine, on Taku  arm.      Tl   is   remarkable   lo   note  . what one man   alone  can  do and a  visit   to   this   property   would sur-  piise   many   an   old   miner.    Mr.  Bevis has an   incline  shaft in solid  quartz, 42 feet  deep, timbered   and  railed,    with   derrick,    hoist     and  bucket, all hand made.    The value  of the rock   is  said to be high, but  so far 'no  assays   have been inade,  the owner being satisfied with  the  value as shown   by   the   colours iu  the horn.  Beyond this property, towards  Fourth of July creek, Pat Donovan  has done some 'assessment work on  a "similar lead, and'.'reports that his  assays run as high as S66S per ton;  this, however, may have been from  picked samples. Several pannings  were made from rock from this  property and all yielded . fine  colours. A peculiarity of this lead  is a black streak, probably meta-  morphic slate, running through the  quartz, which is said to be very  rich in free gold and platinum.  Adjoining Donovan's property,  the Shirley Brothers are doing assessment work, and the general indications are that* some promising  properties right at our doors may  ultimately develop into profitable  mines.
