Some Large Nuggets on the Way  to London Will be Put on  1  Exhibition by the Company.  In January 1901 we published a  report of the meeting held in London by the Nimrod Syndicate, in  which it was stated' that: '"It is  hoped ��� and more than hoped, it  is anticipated ��� that the Atlin  Mining Co. will pay a "dividend  from the first year of its existence,  which will be next year���" That is  to say this year, and it seems' absolutely certain that the expectation  will be realized.'  Already the Atlin Mining Co.  have made four clean-ups, the-total  of the^first three being' some 500  ounces, the last one however* represents more' than , the total of the  previous three, and in -explanation  of this we may statethat;"'the last  c'lean-'urrrepresents the first' virgin  ground worked by the Company,  the other- clean-ups having been  made on ground ~ already "worked  over by individual placer miners,  further, these clean-ups only represent apportion of the whole as\only  the first four boxes were cleaned, to  give an Tffea' of what may be expected when the full clean-up is made  at .the close of this season's operations, an. 8j^ouuce nugget was  taken out 'of the last of the four  boxes. As work proceeds up  stream the ground seems to be, and  is, becoming more valuable;, and it  is an absolute certitude that ��� the  Atliu Mining Company is a dividend paying proposition.  Mr. Fetherstonhaugh, the company's manager, shipped to London  on the last boat 14 nuggets weighing in all 115 ounces, all of which  were taken out of the Atlin Mining  Co.'s property; these nuggets will  be placed oil exhibition in London  and should prove a great source of  advertisement for our already famous camp. The nuggets are  some of the finest ever produced on  the continent, and are only a sample of what Atlin can produce;  larger nuggets exist as is. proven  by those already " found,- weighing  up to 84 ounces.  Mr. R. H. Byles, who left last  Monday, did not, by the way, come  to invesligate the Christopher property, but to report in general, on  the Atlin Mining Co.'s aud Nimrod Syndicate's properties here and  elsewhere. He left with a very favorable impression as to the possibilities of this camp; but said that  capital was shy of "putting in  money where there was a possibility of labor troubles.  BOULDER CREEK.  Societe Miniere Brings Down  a Good Sack of Gold.  Over   a Thousand  Dollars  Taken'  Out in a Few Hour's Work.  Dividends in sight.  Work on the Societe Miniere's  property on Boulder Creek is being  pushed with great' activity, twenty  five men are now employed j in the  mine, which is being worked night  and day.  Mr. Henry Maluin-, the Company's manager, brought to town,  this week, a well filled sack of dust;  the gold was vety coarse and seems  to -be of higher value than that  from the upper part of the creek..  On Monday .last a few hours  shovelling in front of the boxes  resulted in a clean-up of over ,one  thousand dollars, and all points to  a profitable season's operations.  Although    greatly .handicapped  in their work by the tailings from  the mining  operations  carried- on  above the Company's property, the  Societe. Miniere  has  done  everything - possible  to insure, - a   good  clean-up. ���   We ca'nnothelp but admire the manage'mentfor their  energy '"and  confidence,'they ��� went  aheadin spite of great"difficulties;  we sincerely hope that success  will  crown this season's work.    Tlie future   prosperity of Atlin  depends  largely on the results" obtained  by  bona fide'Companies working here,  and if present' prospects hold out,  the Societe -Miniere will -soon take  the lead in our camp- as- -a dividend  payer. ; :-.- ,      . .

What frill prove a boon to bona  iide miners and companies operating in Atlin, is the fact, which is  self evident, thai successful efforts  hdve been made by the Government  to free this district from' the incubus of litigation. The order in  Council, which we published last  week! cancelling the holding of the  Court of Assize, and the adjournment of the County Court through  there not being any business, for  either Court, is, ��� in itself, ample  proof that the camp is assuming a  better standing, and the cry abroad  that Atlin is tied lip by law-suits  will soon be a thing ot the past.  Judge Henderson in an interview  at Vancouver, said of Atlin: '.'There  was an air ofsolidty about the camp  which   is  .very   satisfactory,    aud  there is not the slightest feeling  of  despondency there.    The prospects  are showing  up  better   now   than  ever, and in addition to placer gold,  quartz is  being  worked.     Iu   my  opinion, he  says, ,the. propositions  in Atlin undoubtedly contain  good  pay dirt, and- times .will  be .better  when .transportation   facilities   become easier.    The,summers  there  are beautiful; , vegetables can   be  .grown, aiid hay and  oats  mature,  whicli is much in favor of the  district." ;  There .is' no doubt among all  ��� miners and companies that.the'  mineralizationis rich-,- and several  expert representatives of "English  .and American capital are now here  looking.over. the.ground . and their  report if favorable will make, of our  district a great.mining camp. One  feature, .which.should not be overlooked, is that operators here are  making money, and companies will  soon be paying dividends; these  facts speak for themselves. ���  everyone at our own expense in  fact every claim owner insisted that  he or she should be granted layovers-until we should provide them  with drainage, use of our flume or  idnmping ground and free-water.  It is nearly "two years since proceedings were started against us to  prevent our having  control  of the  ditch and water which had cost   us  so  much  money,   and    after    the  Judge decided the case in our favor  it was stated that we would   put  a  prohibitive price  on, the  water ,so  that no one could get the benefit  of  it.    What are the facts?    The next  day after we got possession  of the  ditch a notice was  posted", that we  were prepared to supply  water  at  the rate of $2.00 per sluice-head'for  a day or night and from  that  time  up to the present I think  we   have  had but  one  application   showing  clearly that   no - one   wanted   the  water or  intended  working   their  claims.  Our  company has  been  spoken  of as the  Grab-all  Octopus Company but we leave it to  your .readers to decide who were on the grab.  Yours truly, "  Robert B. Skinner.
