Satisfactory   Condition of   Affairs  Throughout the' District and  ��� Encouraging    Prospects   for  ,    All Operatives.   .  As the season- advances the re  ports from the several hydraulic  companies now operating in the  Atlin district are most encouraging.  For the most part, this has been a  year of installation, from which  large returns are ��� hardly to' be expected, ,but in one or two instances  where au early start-was got the results will fully justify anticipations.  The ensuing years will undoubtedly show to the world that there was  "more -truth than poetry" in the  oft repeated assertions that Atlin  will become one of the greatest hy-  daulic camps in the world.  At the -present ��� time there are  twelve hydraulic .companies in the  field, all in a greater or less stage  of development. Some have plants  ���installed, others have plants on the  way,' while others are doing prospect work. ��� .  The Sunrise Company, operating  on .Pine and ��� upper- Willow creeks,  has,.in round figures, some $100,-  000 in cash invested, aud it is expected that, in spite of much litigation, it will make a satisfactory  showing. For some weeks four  monitors were . working on Pine  creek under the Company's management, but most of these were  shut down owing to - complaints  from individual miners. Within  the last two weeks the Company  has purchased the discovery claim  of Miller & McLaren on Pine, together with nineteen claims, creek,  bench and hill, owned by Harrigan,  Sabin and others, at figures considered satisfactory to ,all parties.  By the acquisition of these claims,  as well as others down to and adjoining the Stevei.dyke leases on  the creek, the Company practically  gains control, and it is the intention to resume piping with a full  force at the earliest possible date.  After the exasperating experience  which this Company has undergone during last season and this it  deserves a prosperous return.  The Atliu Mining Coompany���  McKee creek ��� ;675iO0o capital.  The success which has attended  this Company's operations for the  season is most gratifying. The  property now under operation was  acquired by purchase in December  last, and today the Company has  one of the best installed and equipped plants in the camp. During  the installation the work was under  the immediate supervision of Mr.  F. S. Roumage, of California, and  no doubt to him is due much of the  success with which the operations  are now meeting.   Upon  his  resig  nation, Mr. Fetherstonhaugh placed  Mr. Mitchell Brophy, an experienced Caribou hydraulic man, -in  charge ol the work. It is understood that Mr. FelherstonhaugL  intimated io his company that the  season's clean-up would not be less,  than $50,000, and it would not at  all surprise u.?, from the way things  are looking, that, such a sum will  be realized.  The ,, following extract is taken  from an English paper :  " Is there to be ,any revival in  British Columbia mining ? The  Nimrod Syndicate recently despatched "a consulting engineer to  Atlin to be present at the first clean  up of the Atliu Mining Co. It appears that a cash dividend will be  earned on this portion of the Nimrod Syndicate's assets. .. A cablegram has been received from the  consulting engineer, stating that  the Atliu' property will, in his opinion . fulfil anticipations. If this  should prove to be the case the Atlin mine may help to resuscitate the  much distressed British Columbia  market.''  The Atlin-Willow Creek Gold  Mining Co., which has been operating on Willow creek, is practically  a close corporation, the stock being  held by "Vancouver,- Victoria and  local men.' The work of the two  previous ��� seasons 'is - said to have  been highly satisfactory. This  season 1500 feet of a bedrock-flume  has been put in, besides about 3500  feet of ditch and flume to draw  water from Moose lake. From 40  to 50 men: have this j'ear been employed, and as the legal troubles iu  which the Company has' unfortunately been' involved are about at an  end, there is every indication that  this year's clean-up will exceed  that of the two previous seasons.  (To be continued.)  ADDRESS TO THE  PREMIER.  The Honorable James Duusmuir  and party are due to arrive this  morning. It is understsood that  Mr. Dunsmuir's visit is purely  unofficial, and is one of pleasure  only.*  The Board of Trade has deemed  the moment an opportune one to  present the Chief Executive Officer  of the Government with au address  of welcome, and also of handing  him an exhaustive petition setting  forth our- needs and grievances.  The petition will be published iu  full in our next issue, but the following are a lew of the matters of  importance which will be touched  upon:  1. Excessive Freight Rates.  The Placer Act.  The Medical Act.  The School Question.  County Court Judge.  6. Improved Trails.  7.

" Things  are left undone which ought to have  been done." etc The few cases  settled are of little moment' to'the  camp, whilst those of importance  are iu much- the same position as  before.

Tt is j  proposed to have the chain manufactured by Jules Kggert & Son,  our local manufacturing jewellers,  and that it will be the best that can  be made in order that tlie name of  Atlin may be remembered by our  future Oueen. -  -<.-' ���  Those;., willing tQ contribute towards the ��� chain and the getting  up ofsuitable.descriptive pamphlets,  to be distributed amongst the visitors, can send subscriptions to the  Bank of British North America and  the Bank of Commerce.
