It is with pleasure that we .are'  now enabled' to submit the second  article under this heading, and it is  gratifying to lean: that the account  of the various hydraulic companies'  operations have been so well received locally and on the outside.  As it is the intention to have the  various data pertaining to. the different companies- as, accurate as  possible, 1; will- be appreciated if  the. superintendents in charge will  kindly furnish us .with data in  order that our report may be in accordance with facts.       c  Boulder Creek:���The I)e Lannire  Syndicate.---Since the Societe Min-  iere dc la Colombie Britannique  took hold of this property for active  exploitation under its own management, it has had many obstacles to  contend with. Bedrock was known  to be very deep, and it was considered to be almost impossible to  reach it with such . work as had  been done last >ejr, consequently  as soon as the .season opened opera-  lions were commenced which would  gain depth in the shortest space, at  the same time, keeping the necessary grade, and it is pleasing to  note that the results have amply  justified the lime spent in the work.  About two weeks ago the rim was  broken through and pay gravel eu-  coui.tered, which, it is conservatively estimated, will yield not less  than $5 per cubic yard. As soon  as this pay was uncovered by the  monitor, a sluice box was placed  ;nid a sample of the pay���not to  exceed three - quarters of a yard,  was shovelled in. The." sum of $7.-  50, mostly in coarse gold, was the  result. The Company has 33 men  employed, and three eight-hour  shifts are pushing the work ahead  day and night.  The ditch, conveying the water,  is about 3000 feet long, and a pressure of 20S .feet is obtained; the  sluice boxes extend for a distance  of 1500, and two ��-inch nozzles are  usually at work.  We were' sorry to learn some  weeks ago that the derrick, which  was installed at great expense, had  broken, but, in conversation with  Mr. De Lamare, it would seem that  after all he is delighted the accident  happened, as the derrick was found  to !xj more of a detriment than a  help lo the working of the ground.  In this opinion he is backed by the  Atlin Mining Co., whose ground  is in many ways similar, and that  powder is cheaper than derricks.  The Company expects to make a  good showing before winter sets in.  There i-; no lack of water, and the  dumping facilities are all that could  be desired.  , Birch cieek:���The Atlin Lake'  Mining Co., capital ,��50,000. Mos-  tyn Williams, Manager.���TheJ properly of .this Company comprises,  100 creek claims and twenty hydraulic leases. Work was commenced in June last'year, aiid 2500  feet of flume line constructed, 2000  feet of pipe laid, aiid, with three'  monitors, one 6-inch ai d two 4-  inch, cost in round Ifigures $20,000,  400 feet of sluices were also placed  in position". Last \ ear's development'work consisted principally in  getting to bedrock, which was  found to be 32 feet, and a trench  800 feet long, up Ihe creek, was  piped out. The average depth of  this is 27 feet, and 15 feet wide.  The cut was through very heavy  ground, tbcugh much of it carried  good pay, the pay-streak itself being from 5 to S feet in depth. The  .work entailed an expenditure upon  the Company of $12,000 in wages  alone,   -., _  This season 300 feet of sluice-  boxes' have been added, and up to  July ��� 10th, 5000 ~.ubic yards of  gravel had been run tkyough. The  dump has been extended, another,  ;.2o feet and 600. feet of bedrock  cleaned up. On a partial clean-up,  a few weeks ago,- of some of the  riffle sets, the return is authoritatively stated to have been highly  satisfactory.  Fifteen men are now employed,  under R. A. Lambert as foieruan,  and, though the water is lcssening"  every day, the management is confident that the season's operations,  together with the showing that this  year'b work'will make, the Company will be highly pleased with  the prospects. The value of the  dam, built last year, with a capacity of 400,000 gallons, and at a  cost of $3200, has been fully demonstrated.  One of the First of Importance  This Year.

Gazette :  "William I-Iknkv Vickkrs, of  Al'lin, J. P., M. D., to be House  Surgeon of the Royal Columbian  Hospital at New Westminster."  We had begun to think that  " Bill}- " had stolen a march on us,  ,in that he was entitled to append to  his name "M. D.," but upon referring to the Gazelle in question,  we find that the compositor got  "mixed" in his "copy,"'and thai  Billy was only appointed " N. P."  ���Congratulations, nevertheless.  TAKU ARM MINE  e%  Prospects    of   Untold ' Value  <> Waiting  Development.  A Rich Quartz Section Which Will  Soon Make a Name for Itself  ���The White Moose a Coming  Mine.  Tim Daily Alaskan recently  had an interview with Mr. Elias  Ruud, Secretary of the Engineer  Mining Co., who returned last  week from a trip to Atlin.-"The  heading reads: "Secretary of the  Engineer Mining Co/makes a flying trip to Atlin and brings back a  very newsy sH>ry." We fear that  the interviewed flew in such a  hurry that he had time only to im-  Tigine his' "newsy story," and' it  would be well, next lime he makes  a "flying trip," to either say nothing when he returns, or else not  to trust to his memory if he wants  to be interviewed when he lands at  his home porl. The following paragraph is enough to   show   that the  worthy Engineer Secretary is off:  "Editor Hirschfeld, of the Atlin  Claim, has visited the Engineer,  the Gleaner and the White Moose  camps in the interest of Mrs. Hitchcock, who will m::ke a mineral display of the Atlin country, at Victoria, on the occasion of the visit of  the Duke and Dushess of something   or another.    .    ."  The scatement about our Editor  having been sent out by Mrs.  Hitjhcock is erroneous. Our patriotism, however, is too strong to allow  the "'Dushess' of something or  another" to pass unnoticed. With  all due deference to the democratic  antipathy to Royalty, we know  from actual experience that if the  Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and  York were to visit any American  port, city or hamlet, they would  be most cordially received and  entertained, consequently, if Mr.  Ruud would consider his ow:: failings'he would not have expressed  his .'.'lapse . of memory " in such  sneering terms.  The official census of the Dominion was issued  from 'Ottawa on the  16th just, and gives the   population  ilt 5.3.38i8t|3,   being a gain of 505,-  644 over the census of   1891.    The  City of Vancouver comes   tenth   on  the list   and    Victoria next, with a  population of 26,196 and 20,821, respectively.    The   population of the  J'fOVince is'given at 100,000,  Mr. A. C. Hirschfeld made a  special visit to the Taku Arm mines  to satisfy himself that the occasional  reports reaching Atlin could be  verified, and his observations more  than justily what has been said as  to the probable outcome of this  most promising section of the district. His ostensible object was to  personally look ,iuto the values of  the,While Moose Group on behalf  of eastern capitalists and to secure  samples for them. While on Ibis  mission he also went over some  twelve or fourteen properties, principal among these were the Gleaner  and Engineer groups.  On behalf of his eastern friends  Mr. Hirschfeld secured :,n option to  certain interests in the White Moose  group, and, in his opinion, taking  the showings, together with the results of such development as has  been done, he believes, with careful  management, a splendid ' paying  mine can be made out this property.  Several distinct and well defined  ledges cross the , property, and the  various samples from these show  copper predominating, with silver  and gold values in sufficient quantity to pay working expenses.  Work on the Engineer group is  going on aoace, and the results  warrant the Company in prosecuting its development. Caution  is one of the watchwords of  the Company. "Be sure you're  right, then go ahead." Upon this  policy the Company is steadily  pushing its work. A valuable feature in much of the barren-looking  ore is the large proportion of tel-  111 ride which it contains. An excellent display of ore samples h :.;  been collected from this properly to  be sent to Victoria, and these are  sure to attract attention, particularly as some of the assays will  open the. eyes of .the "doubtful  Thomases," so prevalent on the  coast, as to this section of the Province's possibilities.  The Gleaner group is being  steadily prospected, and though  "faults" have been encountered,  the ledge has always shown up  again, and it is confidently felt by'  the management that with depth  the ledge will be found intact. An  excellent camp, with all the necessities for winter, has been nut up  on the site of that burned out last  winter, and it is the intention,of  tlie Company to continue work  right along. This Company will  also furnish a good display for the  Victoria'Exhibition.  A great deal of assessment work  has been done on individual claims  in the Taku Arm district though we  do not hear about it, but from the  following, which is vouched for as  absolutely correct, we may form the  idea that " only half has been told  us ;  "Two Sjvgdes, working on the  ���    J 61*  SUCCUSSOKS    TO  P.

Although so' close 'to home it
is surprising how little iskiiown in
Atlin of the mineral hell on Taku
Arm, and how lew of our miners
have become interested. The district is not half prospected yel and
from what little has been gleaned
the possibilities of an iiiinien.se
quart/, country arc unlimited. Only
last Saturday, a claim was staked
within sight of Taku City, ■ the
samples from which would fairly
make you green with envy. The
whole district is easy of access and
cannot be heal as a country for pro-
spectiou. In most cases the out-
croppiiigs of ledges are very-prominent, and those located can be
traced for a great distance. No one
with any experience, visiting the
district, could do other than pronounce it a.mineral ,belt of great
importance, well worthy of the attention of capital.
in the construction of a railroad
through that part- of the- country,
or, in other words, from Vaklez to
Eagle City. If the conditions were
such as to warrant 'the construction
of a railroad it would have been
done long ago, but it will be many
years before a locomotive is seen in
the Copper River valley." •
* Accident  Unavoidable.
Have    to    Be   Taken
All the Papers in Connection Went
Down With the Islander—
Mr.' McFarlane to Return.
Mr. J. \V. McFarlane,' the Assistant Census Commissioner for the
Atlin district, arrived in Vancouver
on the 19th inst. When it was
learned that the census lists of the
Cassiar district were aboard the Islander, and consequently lost, Census Commissioner , Blue of Ottawa
telegraphed for the census to be
taken over again, and it is probable
that Mr. McFarlane will leave Vancouver immediately for Atlin as it
will take most of the summer to
complete the work.
Mr. McFarlane's experiences in
the foundering of the Islander are
not such as any of us would envy.
In an interview by the' Nicws Ad-
vurtiskk, he is reported to have
said: "The horrors of the wreck
were accentuated- by the darkness,
and the agonized cries of the unfortunates, as they realized that death
was upon them, were such as cannot be eashy effaced from the
Mr. Ji.cFarlane received a cut
on the back, which requiied'several
stitches from a surgeon's needle,
but he could not recall when or how
he received the wound.
'Captain Troup,, General Manager of the C. P. N. Co., staled to
the Pkovincu that the accident to
the'Islander was one thai corld not
be guarded against. At the head
of Taku ii.let there is the large
Taku glacier and immense bodies
of ice are continually falling'from
the glacier into the water. They
drift with the tide into the channels
followed by the steamers ami being
the color of the water and nearly
awash, or, ivith nothing showing'
above the water, are almost impossible to see. Particular care is always taken' in navigating these
waters, but this was one of those
times when not even the greatest
precautions could prevent accident.
Capt. Troup was then asked if
he had made any plans for handling
the business to the north. He said
that" though no plans had yet been
made for replacing the Islander by
another steamer, - the Company
would take care of the ■ business it
had built up. The Islander has
been for the time being replaced by
the Danube, aiKLsuch other arrangements will be'made to keep up the
time schedule of the Islander for
the remainder of the season.
