The Northern Mines Limited.,  Their  Steam  Shovel is Tested and'  Found Satisfactory- '  This company, which w.as formed  ilasl spring in Vancouver, bus iii'  stalled tffe first steam shov-cl-plant  iu the province to be used for placer  .mining" purposes.  The company's holdings, acquired  ���by purchase from individual miners,  consist of about three-quarters of a  ���mile of, creek ground on Spruce  creek, wilh an average depth of  gravel of about 20 feet.  The p.'ant installed comprises a'  "Little Giant Special" shovel, built  by the Vulcan firon Works, Toledo,*  Ohio; an tuixilliary hoisting plant, '  2,000 feet of -waier flume and 200'  feet of sluices.   '  It was 011I5/ after considerable investigation-that the present shovel  was chosen, -it having a capacity or  1,000 j-ards to the.so hours, besides  having itlie ad-vintage of digging  three feet below tihe leve? of it's  wheels.  The shovel has ''been placed "on  bedrock, -or rather a-strattim of clay  cement in a pit excavated for the  purpose, and from'where operations  will commence. tHie-dirt is deposited by the shovel into skips holding  i\�� yards, which are hoisted by the  auxiliary plant on a cableway con-  ve3'or some -40 -feet to the dump box.  At the end of the dump box there is  a gidsley which -cuts -out all rock  over three inches, from there the  gravel travels over 60 feet of block  riffles, at the end of this sluice there  is another grisley which cuts out all  material ever J4; of au inch, and the  remaining gravel -.then passes over  another 40 feel of sluice to the dump.  From the height of the sluices, some  40 feet, there has been provided an  ample dump, and.the possibility of  a block by tailings ilias been greatly  minimised.  Last Suuda3' ihe first bucket of  dirt was hoisted and, though there  ma}' be some Utile alterations and  some small changes to be, perfected,  the whole scheme proved itself feasible and satisfactory beyond expectations.  While the capacity of .the shovel  is larger, the existing conditions  will not permit of more than some  seven or eight hundred yards being  successfully handled per diem.  During subsequent tests for a 3-  hour -run -some 95 buckets' were  handled and it is -safe to ���estimate  that-Soo 3'ards per day can be handled with ease.  For-the future the working force  will be-reduced to two crews of eight  men each, and we do not hesitate to  say that with this economic way o'f  handling gravel there should be a  handsome profit on the season'.?  operations.  Considering that the shovel diti  not arrive'lill June,,and that all.the  work has been done ,in less than  two months, too great ..credit can nee  be given to Mr. .-&. H. BrotiHf^-  manager, and Mr. Ii. D. FiHise*-  .stonchau.gh, superintendent.  ^  \e#l-f^/j^l  AUG 23 100! ATLIN,   B.   C,    SATURDAY,    AUGUST    19   1905  ��  ;ie Atlin Claim.

Among other things he says:   '   -  The various Conrad groups coin-  prise i'i claims, on each of whicli  the ore vein is' from 8 to 14 feet  wide and assays all the way from  $50 to $3,000 per ton, principally iu  silver. At present no ore is being  mined which assays less than $600  per ton. Nearly 800 tons of ore  assaying over #2,000 per Ion arc on  the Montana dump. This ore is  being packed 'lour miles by mule  train to,ti;e steamboat landing, for  shipment to smelters.

Another   paity leaves in the near  future    for   the   O'Donnell   valley,  where   the    extensive   prospecting  carried   on   during the summer has  clear^' demonstrated   the  existence  of paying ground.   We may be pardoned   for   saying  "I told you so,"  but in a previous issue in the early  part   of   the   summer   wc strongly  urged those looking for new ground  lo  devote some of their energies to  the  O'Donnell   valley, and we still  firmly believe thai as good or belter  ground than  any iu the ciislnct will  be located there.  government 320 acres of laud on the  beach for train terminals, mill'sites,  wharfage,   etc,   and   there  a'tented  village  is  already springing up under the name of Conrad City.
