Ihe, Dog Nuisance.  ��� )Karamika'"the editorial canine  has meet the fate of many ' better  dogsbefore him in this town; he  was killed .by.his murderous kindred  We all know the cause of;these  gruesome dog fights, for years past,  in summer'and winter, people have  complained of the unsightly nuisance; and we all know the chief  remedy, and ask why it is not adopted? Besides the leading mischief  some men and boys have fallen into  the silly and reprehensible habit of  setting their dogs on to other dogs  for the sport of the thing, this maybe harmless enough amongst some  breeds of degs; but. where, as with  us, so many of the dogs carry a  strong vein of the wolf in their blood  it is extreme folly. Moreover, there  seems no doubt, but what some of  the big cross-bred retrievers, setters  collies and ect are quick to adopt  the fighting method of the 'huskie'  which is, to kill! We venture to  suggest, that, a timely warning and  firm suggestion from the police, to  breeders and owners, to keep their  dogs under control, would do much  to stop the nuisance.  The Asiatic  ;'       Question.  Governor's ' recignation. In .the  meanwhile, the sooner the jnipcrial  Government declares its policy, and  takes action 'with regard, to the  whole question relating to the immigration of osiatics all the better  will it-be for tbe contending parties  The people of British , Columbia,  are never likely to quite agree on the  question; there will always be the  labourers point of view iu strong  opposition to that of the employer  it is the same ancient .source of  many" a sanguinary revolution���  of Labour fiting Capital��� and it  will command higher politics than  those obtaining in B. C. to settle  the matter finally.  Log Cabin Trial.  According to the latest wires  it looks as if much trouble is  brewing ahead over this very vexed  question. However, we shall require stronger confirmation, before  we can believe, that the Dominion  Government has demanded-the   Lt.  The mail carriers, on this most  nnenviably trail, are having hard,  trips; and, accasional duckings  when they break through the ice;  but nevertheless the mails are arriving in good time. Otter Lake is  reported frozen over on Taku Arm,  they/travel along the shores, and at  Golden Gate, there is  open  water.  Joe Tallmire and Norman Fisher  have started to flag the trail. Only  travellers bent on extremely urgent  businness are' recommended, this  our .only.-route of entrance and exit  at this time of the year.',' The promised road to Tagish is not in sight!  must we drown a few voyageurs before we get it?;.'"  A Pioneer Dead..  Thos Tugwell, a pioneer, hotel  man of Log Cabin, died Thursday  in Victoria of catarrh.of the stomach  ���Deceased was at ..one time .postmaster .at Log Cabin and,has, many  friends all over Alaska.who will sorrow over his death',   .    .  The Promised   Road  to    Tagish.  At this time of the year, it must  be admitted that, Atlin is' sorely  tried for the want of a wagon road,  by which safe and certain communication could be maintained with  the railway to the coast. ' Now travellers unless incurring much personal risk ami inconvenience, are  debarred from making the journey:  and freighting is almost inpractic-  able.  Even the mails, wc know to our  cost, are only brought through  with    the   greatest   of   difficulty,  Indeed every consideration must  be allowed for the -mail carriers" in  this ardours and'perilous service;   ���  But suppose we bad a road to the  railway at Caribou; travellers could  have journeyed in comfort, and  safety, with as much baggage, as  they wish to carry, and have all  enjoyed travelling on terra firma-,iii  in  preference  to , taking   chances  leaky boats on frigid water.  It is  quite    possible  that    these    .  untoward experiences may continue  for some mouths; and it goes  with-   ,  out saving, that this is hot a creditable state of affairs in  a    rich  and  steady growing mining district,    It  ,  is a  simple fact:- that  no  country  can  make' go��d   progress  without  good roads.  Probably in a few years a branch .  line'of railway will connect Atlin  with the line to Skagway; but in  the meanwhile, every effort should  be made to obtain a wagon road from  Atlin, along the north shore of the  lake to Tagish,' a distance of less  than ninety miles, It is generally  understood that there aie no physical featurs to hinder the easy construction of such road. Though a  little corduroying in a few places,  and some side grading, for a short  distances, would be lound necessary  at the base of Hitchcock Mountains ,  There is already a road of fifteen  or sixteen miles from the Tagish  Telegraph station to Little Atlin  Lake. At the Tagish River Crossing, a pontoon or iildl ;be  used .uto convey passengers and  freight, horses and vehiles, oyer the  river, "adista'nee of less than 500 feet  j The river is reported to be shal-  ���I?w, with only a moderate currert .  and no Boulders.-      ny; >       c.      -   -  About one quarter of the [road  is  in British Columbia and the remain- .  der is in the Ynkon Territory.  No doubt,  Atlin's energetic representatives in Parliament willcon- .  sjder the advisability of laying  this  matter before their   respective  gov-  e-jnments' as being of imperative im- "  portance to the mining  industry   in"  particulanarid to the welfare    and"  prosperity of the public in general.  ��� Reasons-for advocating road froth "-  Atlin to Y; T. boundry, near north '���*  end of Atlin  Lake,   and thence  to-  .wards the vicinity  of Windy  Arm.- ���  or Caribou;  No 1 That the country in which  the road would-pass is well mineralized.

Accompanied    by      the    Indian  Chief, Taku  Jack,   we  visited  the  School House,   which  was- opened  early   last summer  in   the Indian  Village, by the Rev. Father Ollard.  _ We  found the Rev. Father superintending the  education of eight  boy  pupils in the rniniture but  well  appointed    school  room;   everything  was  in  order,  maps  and  instructive pictures and black board hanging on  the  walls,   and  desks  and  benches   occupied    by the   pupils  studying     english.       The      boys  looked clean, cheerful,   and  intelligent; they average between six and  sixteen years of age. To our surprise  "six years old:' with class   book in  hand,   stood' forth,   and   distinctly  speit and recited a sentence to  the  effect  that   ,sthe  cow  did eat  the  grass'' and'then the big boy of sixteen gave- a  good example of bis  more advanced learning in the: english tongue.    All of which is  highly  creditable  to  their  painstaking  teacher.    During part of  the summer there were 20 children under  tuition,   but  owing to funds  being  very limited, most of them  had . to  go out in the woods for the winter.  We  would observe  that  Father  Ollard lor  the  present  is entirely  dependent upon  local  support   for  the' maintenance of the  school  and  board  of   the  pupils.    The  Atlin  Indians belong to the Hlingit- tribe,  which is a branch of the Taku tribe.  Hlingit, in the   native language,  is synonymous with  Gentlemen  in  promotes their welfare, and tbe reward for her humanity will be amply  found in the holiest uprearing and  civilization of her Indian subjects.  ' We wish Father Ollard all the  success he deserves in his meritorious efforts to guide and educate the  promising young Hlingits of Atlin .  OUR CHIEF INDUSTRY.  li.      N. C.

English, and from all we can see  and learn the Indean inhabitants of  Atlin do not belie their  appropriate  nomenclature.    Chief   Taku Jack's  knowledge  of ancient  history  extends    to  the   memory    that   his  Grandfather was the proud   possessor of a  flint-lock-gun,   this  might  account for a period of three generations,   just  the time it takes to  make a Hlingit (gentleman) amonst  ourselves.    We   hope  that  Father  Ollards Home and School for Indian  children will ere long obtain  support  from  the Dominion   Government.    These Indian  children,  the  representatives of a race  which  inhabited the country long before the  "pale-face"   set foot upon its shores  call  forth     the sympathy  of their  rulers, and not in vain for the Dominion     Government     protects    an  Indian population  of 108.000; and  has established 279 schools for their  benefit in different parts of Canada,  of this number   104 are  conducted  by tlie R.

The  property is  crown  granted to  the  owners.    Nearly    all . developing  operations have been confined to the  main loade, which appears to  traverse the whole extent of the property; its general direction, as indicated by  numerous surface outcrops  is    north-east    and      south-west.
