New York, Aug. 3.���A wireless  telegram received this morning by  the New York Herald from the  Atlantic liner Kaiser Wilhehn tier  Grosse, says that on Tuesday night  M. Wilte, the Russian peace envoy,  said he was afraid the peace negotiations would be ended within a  week from commencement as the  Japanese conditions would be so intolerable as not to admit of discussion.  Paris, Aug. 3.���Emperor William's visit to Denmark's royalty is  claimed to 'have had no political  significance whatever. This statement is taken, however, as a tacit  admission that the results of the  mission have been very disappointing to the German's ambitions.

Loudon, July 29.���The British  channel fleet, will sail August 20th  for the Baltic sea, to remain  throughout September. It is now  apparent that Britain is contemplating a hand in the affairs of Norway.  There is no doubt but that the presence of the British fleet in the Baltic  sea   at   this   time will be taken by  Germany as a great insult. Germany denies having designs on the  throne of Norway.  It is now thought that'Nor'way  will let Sweden out gracefully by  calling the required referendum of  the Norwegian people.

' They are now  cleaning-lip some' of their flumes  and the amouut'of gold which will  be secured will surprise many of our  citizens.  Tlie installation wcrk on the steam  shovel and auxiliary plant of the  Northern Mines Ltd., A. H. Bromly,  manager, has just been completed  and digging will start immediately.  Steam was got up.'on the shovel last ,  Thursday and everything was found  satisfactory.     - ,c    -  The. Consolidated' McKee Creek  Hydraulic Company, managed by'  S. H. Plum be, had their third"$io,-  000 clean-up this- week, making in  the neighborhood'-of $30,000 taken  .out to date, with two months more  to work this season. The estimated output for the season is $50,  000.  Three Indians, named John Jack,  Atlin Shorty and Shorty Johnson  procured miners' licenses a couple  of weeks ago and left for the southern part of the district to prospect a  creek "which is said to empty into  the Nakina river. One of the men  had previously got a good showing  by surface panning.  Ginaca &. Co., of McKee Creek,  Mr. L., A. Ginaca, manager, cleaned  up their first pit lhe end of last week  with most gratifying results, having  I obtained some 200 odd ounces. We  are sorry to learn that Mr. .Ginaca  met with a rather painful accident  ���a nail through his foot���which  will lay him up some days.  The dredge of the British American Dredging ' Co., Ltd., on Gold  Run, managed by O. T. Switzer, is  kept busy digging and is moving a  very large yardage. The work done  this season is away ahead of that of  last year. The clean-up's so far  have been very encouraging and the  management is very confident of  quite a large profit on the work done  this season. The new buckets put  on the dredge in the spring are giving every satisfaction.  Staked and Recorded.  Placer, on Spruce���Black Joe, by  R. D. ���Fetherstonehaugh; O. K., by  J.

To lhe 'student of times and  events the study of a mining camp,  the changes in its personnel and  conditions, must be most interesting.  ��� Atlin started with a rush, and in  the early years of its history only a  few of its io,ooo inhabitants were  really miners, and everything was iu  n state of unrest and uncertainty.  Gold had been round, but titles were  uncertain. Conditions were new,  everyone wanted the best, none  really knew the mining regulations  and mining was practically al a  standstill.  These conditions * continued till  August, 1S99. On the top of all  this the ill-advised legislation, known  ns "The Alien Act," was passed,  which only added confusion and  trouble to an already overburdened  community.  Tbe year 1900 saw active  mining on several creeks. Many of  the restless, unsettled spirits had  sought new fields in Nome and  down the Yukon. Many more of  the would-be miners���those mer-  chauts,-dqctors, attorneys and clerks  who had caught the gold fever���had  gone home, leaving the field to the  real practical men who had remained.  Gradually, since then, the mining  ground has passed out of the bands  of the individuals into the hands of  companies, until at the present time  the individual holdings are few aud  far between, Spruce Creek being the  only creek where the individual has  holdings ol" any extent.  Naturally, the holding of large  tracts by companies and partnerships brought a gradual change,  uew methods of working being  adopted, labor saving machinery 1k-  ing installed, and of necessity there  was'not the work far the nuinljer of  men the camp first supported.  No new creeks wtre opened up  and as a consequence our population  decreased, until today there is  hardly one-seventh of the iSgcj  population remaining.  Our merchants- and tradespeople  aie.complaining that times are hard,  .but with the exception of two banks  tiiiii. two hotels . we find the same  number of sJi<,'f>s and stores doing  business us in .1900. Facts must be  faced, and lhe time has come for a  change; there must .lie a re-arrangement of business methods.,  We would not- have it thought  that we nre complaining of hard  times���far from it. Our output will  be greater than ever, our mines are  developing each season: Some  ���'.���runpanies," with   large  capital i.n-  vested and spending FOinc ycr.rs in  development; will make their first  profit this year,, but our methods  are changed and machinery is doing  the woik formerly done by hand.  We predict lhat two years from  now���when people face the situation fairly and govern themselves  according to the circumstances���  that the camp will be in a more  prosperous condition.  This is not only true ol Allin,  but has been the history of all mining camps.  'Then, also, it should Jx: remembered that there is a* big field for  prospecting and, as the years pass,  uew ground will be discovered 011  the very creeks many have walked  over and overlooked.  Atlin is just emerging from that  changeful stale and settling down to  a firm business basis, but the changing hurts us all���it has to come, so  why not take it like men.  ," ���  GAME PROTECTION.  We are in receipt of a communication from A.' Bryan Williams.  Esq., Provincial Game and-Forest  Warden, in which he calls attention  to the indiscriminate slaughter in  the past of the big game of this district by Indians and market hunters,  and suggests that a game association be formed here for the purpose  of protecting this, one'of our valuable assets.  Concluding, be remarks:.- 'That  I can enforce the game laws' alPover  the province without lhe assistance!  of the people in the various'districts  is alma-it impossible."  We think his suggestiotrii very  advisable one; the charge he has  made cannot be refuted, and'if our  citizens work together the evil will  surely cease.  We trust" our citizens will take  the matter .up in earnest and assist  Mr. Williamson his efforts.  Canadians at-BisIey.

CROSS, President.  Robber, Broke Agreement.  Holdup Man Operated on Somo Mine  Laborers When Ho was Only to  Proy on   tho   Hich Hon.  The following story, which was  embodied in a .despatch 'from Fairbanks, Alaska, is going lhe rounds  of the outside press.  R. Hendrickson was arrested a  lew days ago on the charge of burglary. The accusation was after-  ��� wards changed to highway robbery,  and Hendrickson will 13c tried on  thai charge. Backof this alteration  is a queer story of life in the far  north, and some repulcd queer notion of a "square deal'! and "tainted  money," about which so much is  heard in the Stales. '  According   to    the    information  brought' out at,the hearing, Hendrickson was given away by some of  his fellow-countrymen on account of  a   breach of contract which recalls  the days of Robin Hood,   when   the  rich   were  made   to  contribute involuntarily lo the  support   of   the  poor.    Hendrickson,   it   is charged  iu the information filed, entered into  an   agreement, by which  he was to  have  the  moral support of some of  his friends iu robbing the rich operators, but he was not to  molest  the  poorer   men.    Hendrickson   is  accused of failure to observe this limitation   and  to have poked his gun  under the noses of some of the mining   laborers.    This was too much  for human nature, and    a   warrant  was   sworn,, out., for his arrest, and  now he must face charges in connection   with some twenty-nine recent  holdups  in this neighborhood by a  lone highwayman.  [A   late Fairbanks   report states  that wlicn Hendrickson came up for  "trial tliere was no evidence against  him and he was acquitted.���Ed.]  swim   the   Englislychannel.
