The'dekrthen  ttiade was subject  to certain  conditions  fiitilfe  to be  carried but, "but' 'these  conditions  not* having..'been ^complied  with  Thb  Claim, still iemains the property of A. C.

The result, of the"  past, season's development has  conclusively proved that the yield  of gold is just beginning and that  what has already beeti won" is but  'a scraping from the surface. There  is every reason to expect that next  year will sec' a gre:at influx of  miners and prospectors as"well" as  ' of capital and capitalists, and to  this end The Claim, with the persistence that means success, will  not abate its efforts to herald  the welfare ofthe district.  With   this   cud in view,, it is requested that the..miners on theMif-  ferent creeks will themselves assist  us in our   endeavours,, and   from  time to time  forward, for publication, news of their respective sections so that   we   may  tberebv be  .kept in constant'touch  with every  part of'tbe district.

"The proposed reserve and park is' to extend from  the mouth of lha Yukon river,, a  great distance on each side "of the  river', to the. eastern boundary of  Alaska.

The Season's Cleanup Suffers  Thro' Lack of Water.  Tha-Provincial Mineralogist Says  Cariboo 'Was'Only Just Been  ,    Touehed," '     '     '  The Provincial Mineralogist dur-  ing the past summei paid an official  visit to the Caiiboo district, and,  according to interviews, was much  im.oiessed with what  he'saw theie.  Tu speaking of his visit, the Ash-  croft Journal remaiks:  " We are very glad  the   Mining  ( D:p iitniiiit are  beginning to realize the fact that  there is a mining  section   called   Cariboo in the Province."  A'.h 1," like , Cariboo, .is ofFOie  b��ate<i tr.ul and has vilfeied .it the  - ha.'ds ofthe Government fioni lack  of official "write-ups,"'hut there  is reason lo believe that Mr. Roher-  son will include Atliu in his "list  of \isitatioi s" next.year, r ^t  Of Cariboo, Mr. Robertson'says:  "The past season's .work in the  Cariboo district has been retarded  by the lack of water, which .is all  essential in hydraulic mining? For-  five years past the snoWfall and  rainfall of the country 'has' been  gradually diminishing, so--.that  hvdraulic o derations have been  cause 1'isntly -im i.iired. The percentage of sno.v and rainfall ijj a  hydraulic camp is the exact measure of-pioduction, granting "that  the gold is tliere, and in consequence the light returns from Cariboo  tin- season nriy be laid to the lack  lol walti " Fio'm Mr. Robertson's  observation*., there is 110 lack of  gold, therefore it follows that'only1  a sufficient head of water is're-  ciuiied to win it. _ _  ,>    .  At Slough creek, Mr Robertson  found the most pio.nising indications of successful mining. Mr J.'  Hopp, who is in charge ofthe  work, has done-wonders in the  direction of developing the company's property. A shaft has been  sunk for 300 feet, from which  drifting has been done for 12,99  feet, aud trom the end of the drift  he has broken up to the old river  channel, where the gold lies. This  is a remarkable recognition on the  part of a miue manager of natural  conditions, where so many have  fjiled to recognize them. Ou the  Liard property, Philip Fraser.'who  formerly managed the Miccene, is  sinking a new fchaft which in all  probability will strike pay gnu el.  Taking all in all, Mr/Robertson  sayi, the Cariboo dictrict has only  been touched.  Parental Devotion:  -    Christmas 1902.

' The  following * extract,'   from- a valued  exchange, gives some' idea ^of the  efforts put forth, by the  Dominion  Government   in   the  Yukoii'with  the view, to assist  in', opening 'up  that coitnti>���*: ''������,'"'  ; "The Canadian "Government has  shown a very active inteiest in the  welfaie of-th'e gold-mining industry  at Klondike this year,-and personal  visits to these goldtields' have'been  paid both  by the  Deputy Ministei  ofthe   Interior ^ and   also, by  the  Government   'Diiector   of ' Mines.  'Appreciating   the    importance    of  tostermg the quartz.'minii.g indtis  tiy, the Government, Mt  is undei-  siood? has decided   to   put   up   a  -.mall stamp test mill b\ which the  mineis will" be  enabled  to  sample  tlieir ores at   the   lowest-possible  cost.    As the 'lowest price is given  at $18 a ton, it  will   be seen   that  quartz miuiug-in the Yukon is still  a very-costl}   operation,, and   onh  high grade deposits can be touched  at present, but  the" benefit' of the  Government's action win be appreciated w hen one learns that private  mills at"Dawson ' are   charging, as  much .as $ too'  per" ton.  .Another  way in which the Government will  assist the  miner is by supplying a  number of diamond  drills for prospecting   purposes' ��� which"' can be  hired at a very moderate rent.    By  this   means   new  terrjtoiy can ,be  quicklv   and   cheaply .prospected,  aud assisted by the Government iu  this, piactical  manner, it is autici-  pated lhat  mining  activity   in the  Canadian   Yukon   will     be   ver\'  largely increased."
