Marconi's System Soon to Be
in Operation.
Saturday, Dijck.mhmk 13,  1902.
Tim unfortunate accident which
' has happened to the two Atliii
Mail Carriers gives us icason to
, believe.that the mail- contiactors
for the Atlin-Log Cabin route have
given too'littl'e consideration to this
route, and that, because no accident
has hitherto happened in the service, it requires no condidemtion on
their part.
As a matter of fact, the  absence
of accident   to  the   mail "or to the
carriers is leally clue   to   good luck
-rather than to  good guidance, for
with the alternate bud  and  water
ways at the- beginning and ending
ofthe winter seasons,   the carrier
is in continual danger, cither from
"a sudden squall 01 fiona treacheious
Lee.    On ceitain parts of the route
there is always afore or less danger,
and. G-oida-u   Gate,    the    scene   of
the-.drowning of A bey and   Mclntvre, is one* of-  the   wor-st of the
water'route.-, Again,   between   the
Tepee and Log Cabin, a distance of
nearly,  i'.s   miles,   wheie  the trail
passes over a series of high, upland"
flats, exposed to- the-" fury of tl e-
wiuds—from    whatever   directicn
they may comc-and to snowstorms,
there is absolutely no protection or
shelter for .the carriers should they
be overtaken by such storms.
The winter mail' trail between
Log Cabin is approximately 70-.
miles, and it has: never occurred to
the; contractors for the-mail service
that shelters, at regular intervals,,
were au.i are an absolute necessity.
Log cabins should be built at each
side   of   Golden  Gate, at a  point
Victoria and Cape  Breton   to   be
1   Connee-ted  In    otxt   Gigantic
at Otter lake-, and at two or
three points, between-. Tepee and
Log Cabin. Each oi these cabins
should be^ furnished with stoves,
wood and a few cooking utensils
and food. With such a provision
the carriers would not run the risk
of being caught in "a blizzard or of
being frozen should they go
through, the-ice, nor would they
be compelled to turn back 011 their
tracks as they have so often had to.
do. Such a provision should be
made and that at once, and the
contractors have good and sufficient evidence from the record ofi
the carriers during the last three
weeks that the necessity for. such
shelters exists.
Mr. J.' N., Greenshields, solicitor
for the-Marconi Wireless Telegraph
Companv,   is   authority   f©x    the
statement   that   the    company  'is
about to establish a system of wireless telegraphy acioss-. the  Dominion of Canada, connecting Victoria
with Cape Breton.    He states that
not only   will the company operate
the system   acioss  the i ocean, °but
also a lai d   line  across the contiu-!
ent. ■ Stations   vviill   he erected at'
all the principal cities and to«vus of
Canada and will be included in the
system, the principal stations being
at   Halifax, * St.   John.   Quebec,
Montreal,     Toionto,.     Hamilton,"
Kingston,   London,   ,Sault     Ste.

.The saving of   tells will  be great,
when the new  system is in vogue,
for press messages  will be sent for
half the price and   theie will   be a
reduction of 60  per  cent on commercial  messages   upon   the rates
now existing.     Mr.   Greenshields
says that there  is  no  longer   any
doubt regarding the success of the
Marconi, .system, * and  the official
auuouueeuient'to this effect can be
expected at any time.

THE GRANP TRUNK  Have a Pacific   Terminus in  View  And Pi'opoao ' to, Build a Transcontinental Lino ��� Western  Inducements. '  Space has recently, been devoted  in our columns, to Ihe Canadian  ,Noilhern Railway, which in its  present application   for a Dominion  "charter, proposes to build blanches  north and west, to Up the Atlin  and Yukon distiicls, .Infoimation  just to hand advises us .that the  Gi��iuif Trunk Railway has had under consideration the building of a-  Trans'-conlinental line, and maiteis  have gone so far that, according: to  General    Manager'Hay,   the new  , line will probably be iu full op-  eiation within five \ears, and'that  steamship     lilies   on  -the    Pacific  'will tollow as a necessary adjunct. _  The new line, according to Mr.  Hays' statement, will have a mileage of about 3000 miles and the  construction,-including equipment,  stations, bridges, ships and other  facilities, will involve an expenditure of fiom $75,000,000 "to '$100,-  000000.       According  to  the-pre-  ��� sent arrangement, the new 'system  will run through that portion of  Northern Ontario,1 known as New  Ontario, starting from North Bay,  or Gravenhurst, Ontario, and extending through Manitobi, Northwest Tei rhories and British Colum-  bi 1, to Butte Inlet or Port Simpson,  13. C as Liter may be determined  upon. The line will be one ofthe  mo-stmolsrn and up to date, having i-i view especially low grades,  long tangents, steel bridges and  heavy rails, as well as ample station facilities and equipment foi  the handling of freight and passenger tinffie.  " No one," said Mr. Hays, "who  has-been studving the wonderful  developments that have taken  place in the Northwest during the  List few years cm fail to be deeply  im iressed with the growth of that  extensive" and rich territory, and  our directors feel that, in view o!  the apparent neeei of additional  railway facilities, and in order to  guarantee to the present Gran I  Trunk system direct connection  with that very impo: taut and growing section of Canada, the only  wise policy is to take active steps  towards this extension."  With these two rival companies  the Canadian Northern and the  Grand Trunk Railvva\< aspiring  for a Pacific terminus, the day is  not far distant when Atlin will 1 e  in, direct railroad connection with  the com.nercial centers ofthe continent.  ' Are Miners Losing Gold?

In othei words, it is <-aid thai a  mining engiiK-ei "ie,>oi:s having  erected gold-saving tables at the  end of the oidinaiy sluice boxes  and ou theie tables caught ^7 pci  cent ofthe gross \ield."  With the general piev'alaiice of  coarse gold in the auriferous  gravels in this distiiet, \ ciy little  attention or thought _ has. l!>ccn  given to the saving of golel that  was not visible lo the naked eye.  However, when we are brought  face to face with the fact that  miners aie possiblv losing one  quarter of the yield; the matter i��  vvoilh giving some consideration  !o. It is quite natural to assume  th.atvvilhtheu.se oi gold paving  tables, a laige percent age-of gold  is caught upon them, that by the  non-use of these a cones pond ing  percentage is Ic-t to the miner.'
