An Able Resumee of Work Accomplished on Behalf of Atlfn���  An Appeal fop Public Support.  We have pleasure in publishing  the following letter., addressed to  the Editor, over the signature of,  of the Honorary Secretary ',  Dear Sir:���We ha ve noted .the  the remarks in the Atjun /Claim  of recent issue " tliat when the  Premier and party arrive in our  city" will be the time for the Atlin  District Board of, ��0 show it-,  self." Possibly it wiLl bean opportune time and one which the Council of the- Board will not,fail to  seize, and, while assuming that no  reflection on the Board was intended by the Claim, yet there are  some in the community who have  gone so' far as to question the .utility of the Board. In" "-vindication of  the 'Board against such unjust  statements as..are--current,.perhaps  it" would" be' well ~ to'give' a'.'brief synopsis of their efforts and achievements during 'the past few months  only.  In the first place the Board is  the only organized bod}' who is  capable and willing [o undertake  and foster the* interests of the district. In no way does it look upon  itself as called on to push private  interests except in such cases as  they affect public weal. It is essentially a ''Public Body," formed  of the best of Atlin's public men  and devoted to the public interest.  Its efforts have not always, been  crowned with success, but its members have no need to feel ashamed  of the success they have attained.  Is it. a sine qua non to the efficienc}'  of such an institution that it never  meet with opposition in its requests ? that it must always be successful in its efforts ? Let those  who set themselves up as critics  and judges first purchase the fight  and privilege to do no by contributing to its support, if not in a  pecuniary manner, at least mentally  and with their presence at the, meetings of the board, rather than lie  back and enjoy the results of our  efforts, and in return heap abuse on  those who, by dint of their perseverance and zeal for the district,  have gained the hearing and scored  the advantages they have in quarters where our wrongs and grievances or needs can find remedy. It  is a public institution, and we all  privately and as a community" derive benefit from its endeavours.  We would ask, through whose  instrumentality it vvas that the Provincial Government was first approached for substantial support in  the matter of fire protection of the  city? Undoubtedly, our two citizens, Mr. Graham and Mr. Grime,  pre-eminently-the former., did more  than any 'Other .single individual  here aould have done in the matter,'  The former is a 'member of the  Board and results show the success  of our exertions.  .Did,not .the Board- doits utmost  to have :the grievance of freight  rates remedied and a .more moderate  scale established.? and if- its repeated requests and .-representations were not as fully listened to  as we wished, we have now fh��  satisfaction of .knowing ' that the  freighting company sees the folly of  its exorbitance, , and that we did  our duty, carrying the matter even  before the notice of- the Government endeavoring to secure the redress .of the grievance.  Has not the Board practical!}* 'ao'  complished the fact of .having the  City .of Atlin erected into a Port of  Entry ? Sought and obtained reduction - of Post Office box and  drawers" rent and better mail service with Mainland and Eastern  points ?  : When small pox was prevalent  on the Coast was the Board inert  hi having the- approaches to, the  district ��� watched, thus guarding  against an epidemic-here ? Did it  not use its efforts in urging the  amendment of the Medical Act as  touching such districts as our own?  What of the affairs of education "  here ? Was it some private person  here or the generosity of the Department of Education who prompted the said Department to make a '  grant for the erection of a Public  School in Atlin, and irrestibly  forced to the front the claims of our  city ?  And we might bring many other  minor, still very important, efforts  to your notice, of which we have  already reaped benefits or will do at  no distant date. But these few will  confound the accusation of useless ���  uess and inactivity. And now,  Sir, we would ask in our turn, having conscientiously done our duty,  are they who are so' ready with  their slurs capable either collectively  or, individually of doing more for  the district than has the Board of  Trade ?  If not, we would ask that support  either mental or substantial or both  be substituted for unjust comments  and adverse criticism. " L,a critique est aisee."��� Yours very truly,  FKED. Iv.

We   beg-  therefore   to  urge, upon the proper  authorities  the  early   appointment  of a resident  County Court Judge  for the   Atlin District,   and   would  suggest   that   the   Provincial   and  ' Federal.Governments .'might soar-  range   the- .appointment--and jurisdiction,  of   the   Judge   that   there  might be included in his district the  upper  portion   of the  Yukon District, with Atlin   as a center.    This  would, we firmly believe, be a great  benefit to the  Allit:   District and at  the same time a great  convenience  to the upper Yukon   country.    We  feelsure that 'in   this 'matter' your  Lordship, from your personal observations' of   this, your   first  visit to  the district,    will   heartily  concur,  and we trust that  our  presentment  in this matter will receive vour cordial and hearty support.

' At the   present time there  is one   physician    who  can legully  practice   in the   Divisions of Atlin  and Bennett, and   from   present information   these" large districts will  ' he without   any   resident   13. C. registered physician   from the closing  of navigation   until   the   owning in  1902.    In   view   of'these facts we  wish to place on   record   our entire  disapproval of the   arbitrary action  of the Government in ignoring the  strong representations made to them  by   the    former   Grand   Jury,   the  Gold Commissioner   and   the Atlin  Board of   Trade.     The   feeling   in  this community is very strong, business men and miners will not bring  their families   here   unless this condition  is remedied. ' Under'the circumstances   we  strongly  urge that  resident   medical   men,   possessing  British   or   Colonial  qualifications  be granted a special permit to practice   in the Atlin Mining   Division.  There are at   present in Atlin-cpm-  petent medical men possessing" such  degrees, who would   be   willing   to  meet any emergency   which rmight  arise,   if assured  of. remuneration,  and freedom from prosecution.  "The continued development of,  the camp shows a marked increase  in the resident population during  the winter months, which fact has  been recognised by the Government  in their appropriation for a school,"  and we strongly urge that such action may he taken as will assure  the people of competent medical attendance, and which will allow resident physicians to meet any emergency without placing themselves  in jeopardy of prosecution.  "The appointment of a permanent  Health Officer and Coroner for this  district is a requirement which has  been already urged upon' the Government by' tlie Atltn Board of  Trade. The prevalence of scarlet  fever in our own camp and of small  pox at Sksigway during the past  summer empathises strongly the  imperative necessity of such appointments in the interests of public  health.  "Our visit to the Presbyterian  Hospital has been gratifying in its  results, and the camp is to be congratulated in the possession of this  institution under such efficient  management..  t "In conclusion, we plead the urgency of several of the matters submitted as our excuse for the length  of this presentment; we feel assured  that your Lordship will aid us in  laying our views' before the proper'  authorities.
