Latest Advices From the Scene of  the Wreck���Full List' of the  Drowned.  The wreck of the Islander will  continue to be the talk of the northern country for many days to  come, as piece by piece we obtain  fragmentary news concerning the  awful disaster. Since thc foundering of the Clara Nevada, of which  practically nothing was ever known,  the wreck of the Islander comes as  an awful shock to the world.

OuarU Assaving at Rpa'sonahle Rates.-'  patches, much blame was attached  to tlie officers of the ship but later  advices entirely exonerate the Captain, officers and crew, who-aie  said to have done everything that  could be done.       .  ���  , Capt. Irving, who was master-of  the Islander since "she was hi i t in  1S88 until 1S9S, sees many reasons  to exonerate- Capt. Foote from the  blame which has been laid to him  for the manner in w h'ch le  handled the boat after 'sinking thc  iceberg and while she \un sink ing.  After stating his reason:-; to the  Daily Alaskan on Wednesday  last, he sums up in the following  words: "No one understanding  these conditions, can blame Capt.  Foole for the management of the  boat. It was an accident in many  respects like that of the sinking of  the Rio de Janeiro iu San Francisco  har'cor."  The last advice from the official  inquest at Juneau, gives the total  number of the drowned al 39. Up  to Thursday night 19 bodies had  been "recovered. One ol the U; S.  cutters will patrol the shores of the  coast up and down for several days  iu search for bodies. Wreckage  has already been found . fifty miles  from the scene of the, wreck.  The following is the report of the  Coroner's Jury which was held at  Juneau on the recovery ol the body  of Dr. J. C. Duncan :  First: It is an outrage on the  travelling public for any company  to send out its steamers without  providi-.ig ample means of escape.  Uy the testimony given, il is evident  thai there were not enough lifeboats  and rafts to save the number of  people she did carry at thc time of  the accident.  Second: It is a right that i.e'o.igs  to passengers who commit lheir.-j  selves to the care of Ihe vessel that  that they be warned at any and all  times of real or probable danger.  The evidence is that no alarm was  giyen.  Third: The refusal of the Captain to allow the pilot lo run her  ashore, when'   it  could   be done in  six minutes' nnd he told-him lie  was rallied and that they could rim  down wheie .they could mn the  boat on a fn'vorable beach. The  Captain ��� Ihe-.: took charge and the  pilot left ihs bridge. ^  Under the' conditions as brought  forward , in   the   evidence   the Jury  brought down the following verdict:  ,        i  fit the matter of the inquest upos:  the body of C. J. Duncan, dec-eased.  We, the Jury empaneled and sweru  iu thc above -matter, find that the '  name of Ihe deceased is Dr. C. J.'  Duncan; that he came to his death  on the 15II1 of August, 7901, by-  the wreck ol the my. mship Islander, and by the evidence producd  we find'tliat we can blame no one  for the accident.  The foiienvmg is a corrected list  of names of tlie dearPpassengeis :  The Wife, baby and niece of  Governor Ross of the Yukon, 'Dr.  Dui'can, Mr. lldl, Miss K. Panics',  U.'S.

Saturday; August 24th,   190:.  ���A  The Premier and   Party Get  a' Good Reception  An Address of Welcome Presented  ���Willow Creek Co. Makes a  Generous Host.  Saturday last was a gala day for  Atlin, when Ihe whole town,  wreathed- in holiday smiles, assembled at thc Scotia's dock to meet  aud greet the Hon. Jas. Dunsmuir,  Mrs. Dunsmuir and the bevy of  young people who accompanied  Ihein   on   their   lonjr expected .visit  It is to be regretted thai the Premier's visit was of such short duration, that it gave him but little lime  or opportunity to personally verily  the many matters of importance  brought to his notice by the statement of facts which were submitted ! tG the camp.  to him through the Board or Trade. | 'phc Boaid 0r 'p,-ade had planned  However, as these several matters . uiat an Address to the' Premier  were clearly and succinctly put be- should ' be delivered by President  fore him in black and white, he bs-praser amid the inspiring plaudits  iood for reflection, which, we trust, | 0f the multidude upon thc dock,  will, after caiefnl study, bring forth'buti fearing thai their choicest  fruit iu due season. We have been flowers of rhetoric might' be blown  fairly fortunate this year in placing'away by the violent' gale that' had  .our many grievances and necessities inopportunely sprung- up, Ihey ad-  before the Government, and some- journed the ceremony to the shelter  thing must be "rotten iu the Slate'0f Burton's Hall.

C  no doubt looks to Atlin lor a continuance of the large revenues with  which it has filled the Provincial  coffers, no stone will have to be left  unturned to right the wrong now  done us, but failing a radical reduction in the rales, the immense  outlying districts will still remain  ���'unexplored land," to the great  loss and detriment of the Province  and to the railroad itsell. It won't  do to kill the goose that laid the  golden eggs.  The immediate appointment of  an Assistant County Court Judge is  another matter that demands attention. No sooner Lad ihe Court  risen this season than- suits were  entered, whicli may tie up much  properly for another year unless  such an appointment be speedily  made. The imperative demands  of other mining communities and  thc accession lo these demands  have proved the urgent necessity  for a Resident County Court Judge.  Situated as we are, over 1000 miles  from judicial headquarters, is our  need not the greater !  hearts.  With    these   gallant    horsemen,  Captain John Irving and   E. Janue  de Lamare for ouliiders,   aiid   with  Mrs.   Hitchcock,   Miss   Merrmgton  aud Mr. Hirschfeld as  their guests,  the whole party  then   took   stages  for   Discovery.    There   they    were  met by a group of the oldest inhabitants,    including   ]Mr.   Munro  and  Mr. Skinner, headed by that prince  of entertainers, Mr. G. A. Brackett,  whose genial   hospitality   was more  than equal to this us to all demands  upon it.    A  light repast  preceded  tlie   day's   event���a  clean-up,   arranged to initiate the   visitors   into  the joys of mining life.    The scene  was   a   most   attractive one as the  happy,   bright   faced    girls,   their  sleeves   upturned,   with  s-houts of  joy,   fished in   the sluice-boxes for  the shining   metal,   almost   falling  overboaul   in   their   eagerness    to  grasp   some    particularly     elusive  specimen, while   the   good-natured  miners, entering into  the  spirit of  the occasion, toyed with the nozzle  and trifled with the riffles as if play-  The advisability of a winter mail 1 ing   picturesquely   to   the   gallery  trail, via Tagish,  speaks  lor itself, j were a miner's aim in life.
