The Finishing Touches Nearing an  ���Encl-rWill be  Turned   Over'.by  the   Contractors,  on   Tuesday  -  ��� The   Work,1.- Done   Entirely . by  Local Men, is in   Grc.it   Contrast  ,.to      the      Dominion      Buildings  Erected Here This Summer.  ' The' new Provincial-Government  building, which 'was *;>snecl for  business last week, deserves more  than a passing notice. The butld-  ' ing is of composite architecture and  was designed by an "architect in  Victoria on suggestion's submitted  by Mr.:j. D. Graham;  The structure is 46x45 fttet, ' th-;"  ��� walls.20 feet high,,'hip toot", with a  central deck 16 feet- square. -The  roof is,.-relieved- on .two .sides 'by  large dormer " windows. In front  rises au imposing square tower 26  feet above the walls, topped by a  24-foo.tiflasT. pole. _ where * daily the  scarlet banner of Britannia "throws  its folds to the breeze. From the  base of the tower stretcher a balcony-and handrail.-, The cotnioes,urc  bracketed nicely...  The interior   is , reached   by   a  t  broad flight, of steps 1 rider a handsome porch, and the hallway, which  is 9 feet in width, stretches rig lit  across the building. On the right  front is the recording office, 18x30.  Connected with this is the Commissioner's private' office, 18x15. On  the left entrance is the district  judge's office, 12x18, and behind  this^ is the courtroom, 33x18. A  wide staircase at the end of the  hallway leads upstairs, where are  situated three large rooms for dwelling purposes. The double walls  are jammed with sawdust for pro  tectioii against the wintry blasts,  and the whole" building is so ingeniously arranged that every inch of  the interior can be reached at once  in case of file. The heating apparatus, which will bt shortly put in,  is unique. The flue is terra cotta  encased with brick, and rises from  the foundation right up through  the roof, completely obviating all  danger, from fire. Hot and cold  air pipes lead to every room.  The fixtures in the various departments were all made by the  contractor and arc substantial and  handsome as any to be found anywhere.  The contractor, Mr. David .Main,  has employed none but local men  and used nothing but local mater'al  as far as it could be had. This if.  in. gratifying contrast to the job the  Dominion government riiade on the  Posi-oflice building, which was  .���rected by men imported from the  \nt. Tn rapidity of construction,  ���olidity and elegance,' the local men  ���lavedistanced them completely.  -The contractor, Mr. Main, and  :ikv> the Government Inspector, Mr.  Olive, to 'whfjse,, practical r.sind  many ingenious "suggestions are  due, have every reason to be proud  of Ihe, Atlin Government building."  It will, it is to'ne tioped^ long stand  as a' monument to their energy,"  skill and taste.  -VERY MUCH ALIVE. .-  -*J��is not given  to  every  man   to  experience   the   peculiar  pain-nlea-  -*��$'    c        j- "      , . 1 ���   "���  snre>of reading-his own obituary,-  Diitflsuch. has' iatelv "been the .case  "with   our musical friend, Harry Pa-  '   ���'Vv*  vey. He has iu his possession' a  late copy ot the Oakland, Cal., Enterprise, giving a: full und circumstantial account of the wreck of a  sloopln tFeTSeh'riiig'-Sca," and -"tlie  names of the crew, who all met a  watery grave. Among them' is  ! "our late townsman, Harry Pavey,'  lately of the Chrysanthemum Quartette." It gives Harry a good send  off for the nether "regions and a  character which would have softened St. Peter's heart at once and  secured him a wet cloud, a halo and  a golden harp. As it is,- Harry is  still this side'bf" 'Jordan and would'  prefer "Fifth Ave/.ue'.' to any boulevard iu the New Jerusalem. He  will take a trip home this fall" and  try to convince his relatives that he  is'not a "spook."  AN ENTERTAINING  LECTURE.' ' '-'  Mrs. Mary E. Hitchcock's illustrated talk,'- "San Francisco to  Dawson, with Barge Life on the  Yukon," was presented'to a good-  sized audience at the A. B. Hall on  Wednesday and more than realized  all expectations. To satisfy an Atlin audience, who are familiar with  northern life and experiences, and  are.consequently more critical than  one, say in Victoria or Vancouver,  is a "crucial test and one that was  borne triumphantly.' Rapt attention followed the lectu'ress from beginning to close and the hearty applause at the conclusion was indicative of high satisfaction With the  intellectual treat provided. Mrs.  Hitchcock's enunciation is singularly distinct and well modulated.  "From grave to gay, from lively to  severe, from ball-room to' the gold-  fields," were all handled with that  confidence which only  comes' with  thc speaker's own assurance of  reserve-power. The "talk" followed closely on the lines of ' Mrs.  Hitchcock's famous book, "Two  Women in the Klondyke." The  lantern views, which were cleverly  handled by Messrs. Stephenson and  Pinder, gave counterfeit presentments of the scenes, and incidents  described, adding much 'to the  clear understanding . of the narrative. A' he'aity vote of thanks was  tendered the lecturess and a social  daiice followed. '.  - We hope Mrs. Hitchcock may be  induced to follow with ' anothei  "talk" soon.. If so, it will certainly be to a full house.  .' .SCOTCH PLUCK.  There now lies at the B. A. 'C.'s  dock "-��� fine example of what dour  Scottish' pluck and perseverance  can attempt aud accomplish.. There  floats, as handsome as a duck, a  screw steamer, lately launched, 35  feet in length by 9 in ~ beam, ' the  entire handiwork ol one man.  ,' Early this summer Joseph Morrison commenced building- heir at  the ccrner of First and Watson, on  a model of his own designing.  Many difficulties stood in his way  but single handed ' he worked on.  Old sleds were bought for the hick-  or}- and other tough woods they  contained,-and, after-being dismantled, now form the ribs, of the  steamer. Little by little the structure grew until the hull was complete. A $600 marine engine was  bought down the coast and duly-  arrived. This, Mr. Morrison put  into position. A 20-horse power  boiler was purchased from the  Blown & Sinclair Mill Co. It was  too ,large, but it was the best to be  had under the circumstances, so  Mr. Morrison set to work, cut it  down, refitted it to the required  shape and placed it in -position, reducing its horse-power from 20 to  12. A propeller and shaft was  next in order. These were made  by hand. Mr. Morrison has been  his own designer, builder, engineer,  painter and caulker. The government inspector has passed his work  with credit, and the little steamer,  which has been christened the  "Blair Athol'" will be .employed  for towing rafts, excursion parties  and the like, the doughty Morrison  being the captain and the crew and  the midshipmite too.

They are  satisfied that Atlin is a grand field  for investors and the latter gentleman will return in a lew- -weeks'  time.  Mrs. T. Lawrence, wife of Capt.

The sitlings of thc Supreme and-  County Courts, which will commence next week with the advent  of Judge Martin, will be a relief  from the congestion of civil cases  from which Atlin has been' so long  suffering, and which   have  such' a  . ..paralysing effect upon the districts  Speedy development.     This cleans-  . ing of the Augean stables, once a  year is .only an intermittent relief,  however. Something must be devised for the speedy settlement of  all mining entanglements which are  bound, iu the nature of things, to  arise again and lock up properties.  ���The mine owners themselves, and  the public also, cannot  afford  that  ' the present delays be perpetuated.  They are repellant to reason and  common. sense. It is not our province to point out the cure, that  that must he .left to the proper  authorities, but we would be remiss  in'our-duty if-we failed to point out  the disease which is sapping our  vitals and to demand that steps be  taken to remedy it. We care not  if this remedial treatment be in the  way of granting increased powers  to the Gold Commissioner or' any  way else. Sufficient to say that the  present- condition   of affairs   is   in-  . tolerable iu a camp of such rich  promise as this is. A yearly cleaning of the slate will not do.  The Minister capped all by asking  if the question were whether the  members proposed to have . an ' exterior or an interior view of themselves taken. That settled it. There  .   - t  was no vole taken.' ' *    '  AAAA/WV��>A/WV/WV*Af<VWVVV^  C CHRISTOPHER,  President.  A. C  HIRSCHFELD,  , Secretary,  RAILROAD   OFFICIALS.  Mr. Graves and''Mr. Hawkins,  General Manager and Superintendent, respectively of the White Pass  and Yukon Railroad, left on Tuesday. In company with Mr Hislop  they have spent several days at  Wright Creek, inspecting the Pen-  dugwig Hydraulic Syndicate's prop-'  erty, in which they are deeply interested. Mr. Graves, on being interviewed, expressed himself as being well pleased with the prospects  there aud said that he was sure  Atlin would have a great future  as a quart/, mining centre. On their  way out they paid a visit to the  Engineer   group  on    Taku   Arm.  Mr. Hislop remained behind in  order to .inspect some quartz properties in the near vicinity of Atlin  with a view to purchase. '  At lira Abstract Comfsciny*  LIMITED*  .   ....   HEAD OFFICE.'

During one of his visits to' the United States he was  walking v.'ith Mr. Evarts by the  Potomac. "Broad as the river is,"  'said the American lawyer to the  British jurist, "Washington threw  a dollar over it." The surprise ex--  pressed.by. Lord Russell gave his  companion . the perhaps desired opportunity for the jest that money  carried further in America than iu  England. Lord Russell, rising to  the occasion, at once capped the  feat on Washington's behalf. "After all," he said, "it was not so remarkable a feat for a man who  chucked a sovereign across the Atlantic."  CLIFFORD , AND - JOSEPH.  When C. W. D. Clifford, of Casr  siar, first took his seat in. the Legis-.  lature of Brit'sh Columbia, says the  Province of the nth, the then Attorney-General, -Mr. Joseph Martin,  made the mistake of regarding him  as a good-natured- but to-be:easily-  rattled veteran of- the northern"  mines aud fishing camps.'Lwho  would be crushed instanter'^when  the guns of" the one and only  Fighting Joseph, w.-re turned in his  direction.   . .

THE WISE MEN. ���  On the principle that a little folly  now aud then is relished by the  wisest men, the wise men of the  Provincial Assembly indulged in a  little boyish banter recently, says  the Vancouver World. It was over  tlie request of a photographer that  the members grant him a sitting at  their convenience.- It was the hour  for adjournment and the members  felt like they had erstwhile felt,  when as schoolboys indeed, they  had of a Friday afternoon  watched the hour hand slowly turn  to the closing hour. Some member raised the point as to whethei  m.,,���,.  ^o-.tfd -sit  -"��� -'���-'���" b-'-:;lding or  vy��*A> LyAOi>w��%-v*' \.\j  .^re.  Cassiar man'.s measure, which he  did. by interjecting caustic observations as Mr. Clifford was making  his maiden speech in the House.  The new member stood it patiently  for a while. Then he stopped in  his speech, and very calmly addressed himself to the task of de-  molishitig his tormentor.   .-,.'���  "It is quite true that the present  is the first opportunity I have had,"  he said in effect, "of speaking for  my constituents in the Parliament  of British Columbia^ and it is but  natural under the circumstances  that I may be forced to crave the  indulgence of the House if, all un-  intentionallv, I transgress any of  thc rules of debate with which I  have yet to become familiar. In  granting me this indulgence, I  must ask the House to remember  that a great part of my life has  been spent in what may be called  the northern wilderness, where the  ca:.oe takes the place of the; street  car and carriage, and where the  sight of a white face is for months  at a time denied. Living under such  circumstances and with such surroundings, it is not uunatural that  one should imbibe certain of the  c--.sde and curiously distorted ideas  ���i" civii-zaticn   tjit  prevail  among  the aborigines. One of their beliefs, for example, and it is put iii  practice, is that courteous hearing  should be given to one essaying a  duty that is new to him���r'patie:;ce  with such a-one,-aud a lenient regard for his shortcomings are invariably accorded  by .these .untutored  people of the'land. I see?" that the  principle that they have nourished  is not universal���or at all events  that it is not the practice iii .Manitoba."  That Mr. Martin felt keetity ' the  dignified and yet vigorous rebuke of the genial but strong old  gentleman from the north was evident, and it is told that at the close  of the session he took the opportunity in the lobby to congratulate the  new menber .upon his skill and coolness iu debate, and especially in  responding to the attack he himself had interjected.  MONRO MOUNTAIN. -  Mrs. Mary E. Hitchcock has let  a contract for tunnelling on her  two quartz claims, the Ida A. and  Kitchener.. ��� Five meu have started  to work, and the prospect of tapping the ledge quite ;rich at a  depth is excellent, as the surface  showing is very fine.      ^  MOUNTAIN GOAT.  J. R. Clay shot and killed a fine  mountain goat on Monro Mountain  on Sunday last. It had been seen  by several parties lately, which induced Mr. Clay to take his rifle  along. His goatship was a tough  old customer, as it cost Mr. Clay  eight cartridges to bag the game.  w.  m Gm PAXTON,  NOTARY  PUBLIC.  OFFICE: Corner of Third und Pearl Streot  Atlin, B.

The principal streets of Atlin are  now getting quite a high-toned appearance, thanks to the amount of  work that is being expended on  them under the able'supervision of  Archie Cameron. Whilst not possessing the  faith   necessary   to   re--  ��� move mountains, he has enough,  aided by a little muscle, to do away  with all the humps, hollows ' and  boulders with which our fair town  is so liberally blessed, or otherwise.  The smart,look he has imparted to  the burg is'calculated to give visitors a very, favorable impression and  speaks well for his abilities as road-  master.  W. _G. Paxton has been appointed Deputy, Sheriff for Vancouver  County.  , A trail has been cut along the  telegraph Hue north of the town for  about three miles, giving easy access to the promising quartz mines  in that locality. Archie ' Cameron  will put some men to work soon on  one or two sidings which need  grading, when wagons can make  the trip comfortably.  Brown & Sinclair are havi:.g  lumber hauled from Surprise Lake  for the building of scows.  Fishing has been very good of  late, a haul of over 90 grayling being had by 'three rods on Monday  evening at thc head of the Atlinto  river. Quite a lot of fish run over  two pounds each.  Tom Vaughan, of McKee, left on  Tuesday for Skagway for rest and  medical attendance, having suffered  from a sprained back for some  time.
