You  racked your editorial brain to show  to   the  electors, of. this district the  benefits that  accrued  to them from  Dr.   Young's  representation in the  past, and  especially  the benefits to  be derived!!' we returned him again.  We are waiting, Mr. Editor, for you  to show theinup.   for we fail to see  them,' am!   I   question  if even his  niostardeut supporters, who turned  a usually orderly hotel into a temporary   Bedlam   on  the  night of the  elections���can show any.  Of course,  as you pointed out at that, time, the  fact  of our  member being made a  'cabinet minister reflected honor and  glory on his constituents.    That reflected halo which   may  be floating  around  our  perspiring heads���but,  which we fail to see���wouldn't  carry   us  far  on a prospecting   trip or  supply   pork  aud  beans  while we  are   doing   the   'dead  work'   on   a/  claim.

Oar member will be in the district  very shortly, and we feel quite safe  iu saying he will answer all questions put to him, in a satisfactory  and reasonable manner.  Now, Old Timer, 'on the square'  didn't you get out of bed on the  wrong side the morning of the day  you penned your epistle? Or did  you wander out doors in the dark  in your seeks and stub your toe, or  did you burn you mush, or maybe  you slipped and fell into the flume?  Any of these little mishaps may  have upset you, and in mistake for  the ink you got hol.l of the vinegar  bottle.���Ed.'i  &:< &:;��<x< &$a<w>&&a&!>$x &��&$&<? x ^ia,^r.i^rj.<^^n^u^i^j.<>n^o^^^^'o^'  1  '..\>  ��HEz^:a/I-I;N  IK&iaS  W&  /:ROULTRY!:;!D^/ALl:;'K!ND  ^GilHIS.; DQ35KK!E!R"-; ,;..MA-lSrACT;ER;  ���^bJ^ft^^^S^iWi^^R^i^^^ft^^.^;^  ���^e;/  IEH;E/Wi:ilpM3  Througlr Liiie/l'i��om  ���;:���:;!!!'/:;���//;//'!;.//:!; Diiwso'n.'!and::all-internrediate  Finely ap.pointec! trains c'ailyi except Siinciay,; between  Skaguay, pariboK  anu /iA/hitehoi'ss.:; Carry Passengers,������BaggageV'Mail.and/Exp.ress';;;//.;;':-.;^;  /:/':!/;';:.TI'fJlE-- SCH E DU LEC" O F;;F1RST   Ct-ASS  TR A (Ws ::";^; :     ! / !  v'Ky.

Jfr^^^S*  To the Editor:  Sir.���Referring to your two articles on  "Jumping"   I had hoped in  ' a subsequent issue to see somewhat  oi a modification   of the extremely  partisan attitude  you   have seen tit  to take.  I read carefully the letter of Mr.  TL   D.   Fetlierstonhaugh    which to  my mind was   very  fair aud manly.  As pointed  out   by .him, .there  are  two sides to  all  questions,  and  in  view of that  was sorry  to lead the  comment made thereon.     There are  two sides to every question, and as  to whether the company on McKee  creek have or   have not a good title  to the   ground   is hardly within the  province ol a .paper to say.    Don't  take the say so  of any Tom, Dick,  or Harry, on either side, iind out  ,the facts and dish them up to your  subscribers as news���without comment--always remembering that  every camp has its sea lawyers, its  gossips, maligners, know-alls, aud  3iars; aud poor Atlin more than its  share of the scurvy crew. When  the issues have beer, settled through  the proper channels, and if one side  has no right to step in, or the other  side has been lax, laythe blame at  the proper door and lay it on without fear or prejudice.  Don't forget���an attack on the  bona fides, personal or financial  standing of any one interested, will  1  not effect in the minutest degree the  legal status of the titles, aud besides  is unseemly. Tf the titles are good  at-will not make them better, and if  bad���does it look good? And are  the locators 'jumpers?'  The sooner individuals���it mat-  teis not their social or other standing--learn that the mining laws  have to lie complied with and wis!  be carried out, the better for all concerned, whether corporations, individuals or absentee principals. The  placer laws are good and plain and  fair! and if carried out by individuals and officials alike, all interests  will lie safe aud titles protected.  There is a saying, 'never send a  boy to do a man's work,' also, tliat  'a knave may. lake a two-spot, but  a king can always beat it.'  FAIR   PLAY.
