To Run a Fenee Around Taku and  Keep the Boats Away.  "The sleamlKHit'trouble last week was on  this side of the lake: now it is on tlie other,"  said a steamboat man .who came into The  Cr,Ai.M oflice on Wednesday with trouble  in'his eye, and after seating himself w out on  to tell them: ,  "The John   Jrvinjj   Navigation   Co.'  own  tlie tramway across the portage from Atliu  Lake to Taku Citj���some two miles-���and no  opposition  boat can do  business o\e'r this  1:01 tajju unless this is granted  by tlie above  company.   Then   again ,there   is  a wason]  road that leads around.   This vuiptou  road  is no new thins-, for it has been  is  use for  months before the Irving Xnvijation  Company took over the tramway.   Mo-it of the  freierht  brought  into Atliu  has come over  this wniroi: i oad, and the Iryiiir Navigation  Coinpini}   brought their Ireight that -way.  Up to the present the  tramwaj   lias been  used  in a desultory manner, enrriiiijj lmjr-i  iraao and small freijrht packages: now,  it is  claimed, everything i�� in  shape tor larjrer  freijrht to come over.    In view ot tliis ami  w ith the object of further cripplinj? any opposition that could  possiblj   come  up, the  head of this company went to Victoria some  few weeks ajro, ami pre-empted this land.  Ostensibly he   went to'secure modification  to existing trade conditions, but in  reality  it was to copper w hat ho had in hand.    With  his pre-emption, as heissaid to have brought  buck with him, he ordered two men the early  part cf the week to clear ground for a fence  around the land and thus shut off the wag-on  road to all competitors.  "Aeeordingb the men were put work anil  made \ery jrood pro;rres-,.  "This brought the freighters to their senses and it is reported the matter was  placed before the Commissioner and an order issued by him restrain;; the blocking of  the road.  "One ol the nion who did the chopping was  from the Gleaner, and towards evening of  the iirst day lie was accosted by sumo passers by as to whether he had a license. To  this he replied in the negative, whereupon  he w as asked if he w as aware tliat imprisonment awaited him for cutting timber w itli���  out a licen-sO. At thi-> he threw down the  axo and stampede 1 to the boat.  "I'd like to know," finished the narrator,  '���if the John Irving Company can build a  foucc around this country without a logger's license?"

The latest deal is the mining line is the  sale of a controlling interest in the Caledonia group of claims to Victoria and Vancouver men���Tho-.. Dunn, H. H. .Skinner. John  Irving, M. P.

Events  of   thc  past  two   weeks  have  demonstrated ��� that   Atlin   is  sorely in-need of a head ���-- some organization that will watch and look  into matters pertaining to transportation, receive representative bodies  that may   from  time   to   lime  find  their  way   into  Atlin, and'  adjust  ,   other details that may come under  ^   their review.  A joint Board of Trade excursion  is being arranged for from Victoria  and Vancouver and ,is expecUd  in  Atlin by the end of this month.    Tl  is a well-known fact that .the men  who compose these bodies were instrumental,     to      a     degree,      iu  i- having'    placed,   upon,,   the    statute" books    of    British     Columbia  the  now famous bill that has  ��� advertised this Province the world  over.

PARSONS PRODUCE CO;  -:o:-  Ald.  Ex-  Skinner,   of Vancouver,  ��� presses His Opinion.  The past week has seen a number of live  business men in Atlin. These wore Thos.  Dunn, hardware merchant, Vancouver; It.  B. Skinner, crockery and glasswaro, of the  same city, and au aldcrmuu us well; and W.  Wilson; of Victoria. ..The-latter gout Ionian  is one of the shareholders iu the Yukon &  White Pass K. It.  They are all unanimous- iu their opinions  as to tlie possibilities of the district and say  t hat next year will see activity iu every part  of the district.  '.'On the whole my impressions of the country are very good," said Mr. Skinner. "I  caine up to look into some nll'airsjii connection with thc Atliu bake I.umber Co., and  found tiiese iu a satisfactory condition.  "I was treated to a clean-up on Sunday  on 2 above on Pine creek, iu which fin interested, in company with W. I<\ Gibson,  and the claim is certainly a good one, for the  result was I'li ounces. This represented two  men for throe days. The property was one  of thc disputed ones and only purchased  some few weeks ago.  Mr. Skiuuer is not much impressed with  legislation  that keeps money out of the district, and only saw- one man iu his travels  iu the. north in favor of tho Alien bill.    "The  Alien  bill  is   the  most, ill-advised piece of  legislation ever passed in  any country, and  iiow can a men come here and not see its effect on  every side?" Mr. Skinner went on.  "Had it  not been  for that the  population  would  have   been   25,0CO.   I    see   men   with  piecos of quartz everywhere, but us long as  present   conditions-   exist, capital   rt'ill  not  come in.

The risk iu  iu the city is said to be live times less than in  the country, and there few safer phieesjn a  thunder storm than a hirgcsteamship. .The  statement is made that lightiuing more often  results iu suspended animation than in death,  and tho body of a person struck by lighting  should therefore he kept warm, and every  effort used to restore animation until a  physician arrives to take the case in bund.

' ,  Speeches, Football and Dancing  Indulged In.  Last Tuesday was a foto day for Willow  creek and not'only Willow crook but Pino  city, for inaiiy hundreds turned out in tho  afternoon to celebrate t he completion of tho  big-ditch, the property of the Willow Creek  Miners' C'o-Opnrntivo Water Association.  The ditch, like the name of tlio association,  is a long one, winding its sinuous course  along the hanks of I Mud for upwards 'of two  miles, I ho intake being admirably situated  ,'whoro tho waters of the crook aro narrowed  by the converging, rock on either side. . On  Tuesday afternoon ,(110 association gave a  picnic and daucu, at which some hundreds  enjoyed IhoniHelvos.  Thu afternoon's' pleasure bogun. with a  football mutch played on tlie grassy plains  some two miles above Pino City, where diiino  nature has provided au ideal play ground.  Tho spectators woro trouto.l to an excellent  exhibition of association football, tho two  opposing teams being so well matched that  tho gunie resulted iu a tic, no goals being  secured by cither side. Photographs, both  amateur and professional, wore busy taking  pictures, and thc iirst football match played  iu this district has mude a pennant impression iu more senses than one. The teams us  they lined up were as follows:  Capt. II. J. Richardson���Goal, Eiiuet; backs,  Wright and Mclntyre; half-backs. Pinker-  ton,'Leith and liainbri^l^et'forwards, Summons, Dalvy, Smith, Richardson and Griffith.  Capt. Owens���Goal, Maddison; backs,Kirk-  wood and Owen; half-backs, Dick, Clayton  and Green; forwards, Gourly, Dalby, Atkinson, Whethain and Canavan.  C. R. Oubridge acted as referee.  Alter football all hands trooped hack to  the dancing platform, which had been erected on the sandy blull' immediately above  the head of the ditch. Thc spotwus well  chosen, as a good view of a large portion of  the ditch, hcudgutes, etc., was obtainable,  and so an idea of the work, the completion  of which the picnic celebrated, was easily  othoraudiict  iu  a co-operative spirit.

Grahuui, who was unable to  be present. He then read the following letter  of regret from that gentleman to the secretary of the association:  Atlin, B. C, Aug. 21, 1899.  To the secretary of the Willow Creek Miners'  Co-Operative Water Association, Pine.  " Sir���I beg to acknowledge the receipt of  your very kind invitation to be present at  the opening of the wuter ditch to supply .the  miners with water on Willow creek and I  regret very much that pressure of business  elsewhere will prevent my accepting your  very kind offer, whicli I very mtich regret.  '-Iu the undertaking of the miners of Willow-  creek, which is deserving of the highest  praise, I might say that it is an example  t'nat all the other creeks may well emulate.  It is the old say ing "Unity is Strength," audi 11  your case it is exemplified. C might state  ' tliut I have watched the work very closely  from its inception and I must say that for  the time occupied the work has been curried  out in a skillful manner and without a hitch  of ii'ij kind. Further, I have rarely sce-i a  better lot of workmen in mylifewho wo.'he.l  on the construction of said 'ditch and I  Hatter in J self I know a little about digging  trenches, having had two years military  training in said work, under strict discipline, when a man is compelled to work.  I sincerely trust that all J our expectations  may be realized and that you all may reap  the fruits of your labor and make a'stake so  that you may enjoy yourselves this winter.  Thanking you again for your kind invitation.  Yours very sincerely,  J. D. Gkaham,  Gold -Commissioner.  Letters of regret at inability to be present  wore also acknowledged from C. W.Clifford,  W. A. Spencer, and Magistrate Woods. Mr.  Robinson then called on lion. Mr. Caton to  address the meeting.  In opening Mr. Caton humorously observed that British Columbia should adopt  him, as more than once he had to take the  place of an absent government official. However, he felt it tin honor to speak on such au  occasion as this. He then proceeded to show-  how dependent we are upon water, the important place it takes in the universe of  matter and how it is a medium through  which energy exerts itself. In inspiring language ho congratulated tho miners-of Willow-  creek, as the promoters und the builders of  the ditch and he prophesied that its usefulness would not be limited to Willow creek,  but befor? long it would be extended past  Pine city ind its waters used to wash tho  The B  building at Pine City to take tho place of  tlieir present crumped quarters. The building will be 10x38 feet, and will he opposite to  the present one.  .
