Quite a number of-our old residents are preening their wings and  preparing for a flight to scenes and  pastures new. Down the Yukon  seems to be. the favorite direction.  Amongst others may be named Dr.  C. Lewis and W. R. Dockrill, who  intend starting next Saturday for  Circle City. Fred. . Fortin, Syd  Aitken and George Rice, the last-  named one of the best known and  inost successful hotel men in the  north, are going to look up that  city also, and possibly may push on  to the Tanana country, from which  good mining reports are being consistently received. We wish them  alt success in their new spheres of  influence, and,   if'Atlin    does   not  Tendered to A. W. Shiels at Hotel  Grand on the Eve of His Departure for the Coast.  On Monday evening, . at the  Grand Hotel,-a complimentary banquet was tendered to Archie -W.  ���^hiels, Esq., late.manager . for the  British America Corporation's Atlin branch, previous' to "his departure for Vancouver. Punctually at  eight o'clock the chair was -taken  by Gold Commissioner Graham, the  guest of the evening sitting oir-his  right. . Twenty-six gentlemen sat  down to the table. The menu was  first-class and fully up to the best  traditious of the Grand. After the  abundance ofgood -things-was-done  ample'justice to, the chairman'pro-'  posed the Queen,' followed by, Our  Guest. In a.few well-chosen sentences the speaker rendered testimony to the high esteem in which  Mr. Shiels is universally held here  and the regret occasioned by his  departure. Mr.- Shiels, in responding, said he was sorry to bave to  leave such pleasant associations and  the many warm friends he had  made here. 'On going to the coast  any thing lie could .do to advance  the district's interests he would  cheerfully'do. Toasts and speeches  followed in rapid successiou until  the party broke up about 12 o'clock'.  On the following afternoon Mr.  Shiels left by -the Scotia and the  wharf was crowded with friends to  see him off.  A NEAT ESTABLISHMENT.  Jules Eggert & Son, the Swiss  watchmakers, have now got their  commodious establishment on First  St. in full running order. A full line  of all the latest, up-to-date machinery required for a manufacturing  jeweller is in place. A very pleasant and instructive visit can be  made by any one so inclined,. the  proprietors courteously showing  and explaining the uses of the  various machines, which are really  very wonderful in their operations.  Whilst the visitor waits he cat) have  a nickel run out into a ribbon a  couple of feet long or drawn into a  wire of indeterminate length. A  complete smelting outfit forms part  of the'plant and customers can have  To Be Shipped to Paris, Where  Will die Placed on Exhibition.  M. ��� Jaune de Laniare has just returned from -a three days' trip to the  Laniare Syndicate Hydraulic mine  on Boulder Creek. 'During M.  Lamare.'s visit to "Paris, where the  stock of- the Syndicate ,is mostly  held, Mr. Christopher, the well-  known 'mining manager, .assumed  full charge, of ' the construction  work, which isv now completed, " to  M.'Lam'are's complete satisfaction  , Boulder Creek has been showing  up- well/ lately. The individual  miners -.report _ ver3r favorably of  their gold returns and the finding  of'a nugget- vyeighing 48 oz. 12  dwt, by1 Messrs. Clarke and Su-  i therland, iu .the vicinity of ' the  j property "-of the S}rndicale, makes  a record for the district which is  sure to be" beaten when the hvdrau-  licTgiarits get to"work." "This"nugget' was on exhibition at the Bank  of' Halifax for some da3's. It is  clean cut," without any. quartz, and  and ,is a solid, compact piece about  the size of a clenched fist.  The nugget will be sent to Paris  shortly, where the shareholders in  the Lamare s)Midicate will no  doubt view it with extreme interest,  coming as it does .from the creek  011 which their mine lies. Accompanying the same on its long  trip will be photographs of the men  who uncovered it, their depositions  and likewise the deposition of the  Gold Commissioner, Mr. Graham,  as evidence of its having been taken "from Boulder Creek, Atlin District. These will be published in  M. Lamare's journal, in Paris, at  116 distant date, and will doubtless  serve lo dispel any suspicion that  may arise as to its having come  from Dawson, or any other mining  camp outside of Atlin.  Our mining reporter- intends paying a special visit to Boulder on  Monday and a full description of  the creek and mining operations  thereon will appear in our next  To 'Be Installed  on   the  Engineer  Group on Taku Ann.  Krom   the    Engineer   on   Taku  Arm,   comes   the cheering  intelligence that prospects   are-so   favor-,  able that the company have decided  to install a 20rstamp mill as a start-  er.     In    a  conversation   with   Mr.  Faull,   who  has just visited the locality and   who' is   most   favorably  impressed with   what  he saw, rwe  learn that   the  Engineer  possesses  two  ledges,  oue  of the" 'enormous  width of 72 feet, clear, mineralized  quarts,from side to side,   the  other  is  a distinct vein of apparently the  same  quality  and  '15   feet r across  from wall to wall.    One assay from  chippings    across  the large  ledge  gave $30 per ton  in gold.    If this  rate . could .ouiy   be   maintained, "  then   tlie  Engineer,   with   its   vast,  bulk of ore,, would  be  the   ban ler  mine   of the world.    Rich telluride.  ore occurs   iu   places.    Samples   of  this, when roasted,   show  speckled  all over with  points  of gold  quice  visible to the   naked  eye.    Should  this    property, live 'up ..to  half its  present   promise and be worked for  all it is 'worth,,it   will  give-permanent - employment  to Tiuudreds   of  men and scores, perhaps hundreds,   .  of stamps, -and  a live,   prosperous  town jon Taku Arm will follow as a  matter of course.' .   .  . GOLD-RUN.  Locators on the new rush at Gold.  Run are ' being granted lay-overs  until the end of September. Water  is verj' troublesome in' the deep  ground at this time of the year,  and Gold Run is essentially a drifting proposition. When the frosts  set in, work will be vigorousljr  prosecuted, and a large number of  meu will find " "profitable employment during" the long winter  months. ,  AT NICKERSON'S.  Preserved figs, mango preserve,  Cross & Blackweli's jams, Fre.:ch  peas, "mushrooms, anchovies in oil,  pate de foie gras, potted shrimps,  lobsters'and crabs, Roquefort and  MeLare-i's cheese.

' The Imperial group on Monro  Mountain still keeps on shipping  good ore to the Anaconda, stamp  mill. ' The drift to tap the ledge at  the'i 20 foot level has discovered a  large body of good quartz, as expected. With such a guarantee of  quality and permanence the agent  for the Niirrod Syndicate, Mr.  Fetherstonhaugh, is making arrangements to piit up a ro-stamp  mill at the Falls on Pine Creek. A  road has been built io the proposed  mill site, giving -an easy grade for  the transit of ore.  IMPORTANT  DEAL.  , Messrs. Dr. Troughtou, E. RHd,  and the Dixon Bros.,   have bought  out the entire buildings, stock  and  machinery, of the Atlin Lake Lumber   Company.      They  propose  to.  run -the   mill  on   tip-to date  lines,  -Mr. Ridd   managing  the  mechani-.  cal,    Dr.   Troughtou   the   financial  and N. Dixon the   logging part  of  the business.    We trust   they   will  meet    with    success in  their  new  venture.  -'^,!  s\?V  &BaiaMiw.��^~*��"  v~;,;3.-y..^.iw^^^^ -> -vu^.wj^.-j'ii., -  vfj ,* fi   ��Xu <1vU!i<4^^w  -.-��*< -��-J;",T^Ui^MJaL.~-!,��:i! i  ATLJN,   B.

'  It says little  for  our  local  Liberal-Conservatives, claimed by some  to form two-thirds' of the ' electoral  list  in  this    young   and  tolerably  rich camp, that they  will  not   be  able to send a delegate to the convention to be held  at New  Westminster on the 31st inst., to perfect  plans  for   the   coming   Dominion  election.    Around the time of the  late Provincial election  great  talk  of organization was made,   but  ev-  erybodjr's    business  was  nobody's  special  business,   <and   the  whole  thing was  allowed  to die ,out  of  mind, when presto, the call comes  to   send   one   delegate  down  and  finds'"the northern section  of Cassiar  totally  unprepared  to do  so.  The only  consolation  the Liberal-  Conservatives  can derive from this  chaotic state of matters is that their  opponents  are  apparently in   the  same position, six of one  and' half  - a dozen of the other.    It  will, be a  -great advertisement for Atlin when  the  roll of electoral districts is called  at  the  convention   and   Atliu-  Beunett is  reached,   to find the re  spouse���absent!  A case which ia now probably  attracting much attention in B. C.  is that of Williams y. The B. A. C,  and-is likely to prove very remunerative to the legal fraternity. The  -plaintiff claims $602,620 and interest at"6 per cent, from June, 1898,  on the grounds that he was one of  the original shareholders in the Le  Roi Co., and one of the majority  who agreed to sell, and did sell,  their shares to the British America  Corporation at $5, on the distinct  understanding that the>* should receive the same amount for their  shares as the minority if the B. A.  C. should succeed in acquiringtheir  interest. This they eventually succeeded in doing, but, it is alleged, at  an increased price of $2.30per share.  As Mr. Williams was the holder of  262,009 shares, he is of opinion that  be is entitled to the additional sum  of $2.30,00 each share, and hence  the present action. The other  majority shareholders are said to be  watching the case, and no doubt  that the shareholders in the B. A.'  C. will also feel some concern in  a matter which greatly affects  their pockets.���B. C. Review, July.  FORMALLY   OPENED.  With Concert. Ball and Supper the  Handsome New Provincial Government Buildings Are Opened to  the Public.  ���Despite the persistent rain and  ,sogginess of.the weather, the formal opening of the new Government buildings brought out everybody who claims to be anybody,  and at the starting hour the hall  appointed for the concert was filled  to overflowing. Three stage loads  found their way dowu from Pine  and added to the already vast assemblage. , For some time the Gold  Commissioner   and    his    deputies,  aided   by   the  deft  fingers of lady  volunteers,-have  been at work decorating  the,, hall and the restilt.{at-  tained vas charming.    Flags tastefully .festooned  around, the-room  and ��� a  liberal display  of   Chinese  lanterns, transformed it into a thing  of beauty.    At  9 o'clock Mr. Graham  opened  proceedings by an altogether too brief speech.    A  long  concert  followed,   in   which nearly  all  of the  old rtalent  aud   a good  deal   of  the   new  presented their  specialties to  an  appreciative and  applauding  audience.    All   the old  performers are too well-known'to require  any> particular- notice iii1 this  connection,  suffice  it  to say   they  were up to their  usual high  standard.    Those who appeared for the  first  time  before an Atlin audience  were Mrs. E. M.   N.   Woods,   who  played  a piano solo in a style artistic to a  degree.    Liltle   Miss  Pill-  man   proved herself-quite an elocutionist,   possessing a winning manner  and   a   thorough   grasp of .the  meaning  of   her   part.     Mr.   Des  Brisay  sang  a, couple of songs "in  good  style  as  did  also  Mr.. ^Van  Welt.   .The latter gentlemanvwjbuld  be a first-rate catch for  one  of .our  local choirs, as he possesses .-a bass  voice    of . imposing. vdlume-;-;|and  which shows  considerable training.'  Her  nainsel', Cot  pless   her,   was  there with the  pipes,   "and made  them skirl,   till   roof and rafters a'  did dirt," evoking many, a} "hooch"  from the    enthusiastic'Scotchmen  present.    Mr.    Henning gave  the  audience "a taste, of his quality*as a  guitarist as did Mr. Lear as ���"man-  dolinist.     Both,  scored   successes.  Mr.   Brackett  kindly .gave a choice  lot of  selections on  his immense  Edison gramophone.    It was a revelation to many present and formed  a  very agreeable feature of the entertainment.    Messrs. McFeely and  Lecappellain  wound up the- concert  part   with    their   never-to-besuffi-  ciently  admired  rendition    of  the  cake    walk.     The    costuming   of  Mr.   McFeely  was" superb and was  gotten up under the  supervision of  Mrs. J. H. Brownlee.  After the concert a bounteous  lunch was served -.and the'.. hall  cleared for the light fantastic^" Ten  numbers were on the programme,  which was faithfully gone, through  with.

Whilst groceries are more staple than dry  goods and notions, yet Mr. Black-  ett's promise to make a cut satisfactory to all, can, in the light of his  past record, be entirely depended  on. ,  Baker & Teunaut are turning  out a large number of scows for the  Dr. wson trip.
