THE NEW TREATY: IS  RATIFIED.

C, Dec. 20th.  ���The Hay-Panncefote treaty has  been , ratified by Congress. Only  six votes recorded against the ratification.  The new c, treaty was signed on  the 18II1 of last mouth by Secretary  Hay for the United'States and Lord  Panncefote, Ambassador for Great  Britain.  This treaty, is intended to replace the first Hay - Panncefote  treaty. That convention was  amended so -extensively by the'  United States Senate at its last session that, tbe British Government  declined to ratify it. Within a few  week:.- negotiations begiiirafresh-be-  tween Hay and Panncefote which  has resulted in tlie ratification ol  the new treaty drawn with.special  reference to the objections made by  Great Britain.  The principal, point of difference  between the new and ' the failed  treaty is the withdrawal of Great  Britain from the joint guarantee of  the neutrality oi" the canal, thus  leaving the United States the sole  guarantor.  The section of the old provision  respecting the right to fortify the  canal leaves that right by inference optional with the United  Slates.  - All commerce, of whatever nationality, passing through the canal  will fare alike. There will be no  discrimination in rates in favor of  United States shipping. Otherwise  the new treaty is similar in scope to  last year's treaty. It replaces,  technically, tlie Clayton - Bulwer  trcaty, concluded in 1850. By the  terms of that old convention the  United States and Great Britain  agreed that neither should seek any  advantage in the right of transit  across the Isthmus. By the new  conveutioii Great Britain yields her  right in favor of the United States,  which is thus at liberty to construct a canal.  ,   Vancouver,   Dec,    20th.���Vancouver has ��vired   Postmaster-Gene-  nil   Mulock   endorsing  the request-  of White Horse to have iis full maill  service resumed.

The proficiency which' the children showed in the examination  through which they were put, covering the work of the first term,  reflects very great credit upon their  teacher, Miss Hughes.  At the close of the exercises remarks were made by the Trustees  and some of the visitors, and, in  these, Miss Hughes has reason to  feel that her diligent attention to  her duties is fully appreciated by  parents and children alike.

HYDRAULIC vPLACER  Saturday, Dice.   21st,  1901  Tmc relative positions of the hy-  dntulic leaseholder and the ' placer  miner, mentioned in a letter lo the  'Editor in another column, is a subject which, since the ".ranting of  leases in the distiict over occupied  ground, has been :t sore and unsatisfactory point lo both inlciests.  As far as we understand the matter,  the trouble seems lo arise irom  the failure of the authorities to  insist upon applicants for leases  living up to the laws by which  such applications are governed,  portions of the ground meanwhile  may have been lelocated Wy individual placer miners and been  proved of value for individual mining, while, on the other hand, had  the applicant become a leasahol ler  and 'conscientiously developed his  ground it would not have been open  for individual re-location.  hi our opinion, from a literal  translation of the Act, applications lor leases -may be made  upon all or any ground not legally  held hy placer miners, and the completion of title by and with the  Government within the lime specified in the Act, gives title against  all comers and circumstances.  Were it otherwise, hydraulic or  dredge mining could never be undertaken' in this Province, because  the moment pay was struck on  ground covered by leases individuals would have the privilege of  stepping in and jumping the ground,  on the assumption that such  ground was available lor placer  purposes.  Ground once abandoned by  miners, whether worked or 1111-  worked after a given time, should  be open for lease, and  amendments  A Question  Agitating   Local  Miners.  Free Miner" Gives His Opinion  on the Subject -.-.' What the  Placer Aet Says.  The subject suggested in L'ue following letter is well worthy the attention and'consideration of miners  and of the Government, and it'is-  published with lli'c view that the  matter - may be taken up through  our colunn s in oider that public  opiui'jn may be obtained, and,, il"  necessary, the Government memorialized on the subject:  Siu:--As there is considerable  doubt in ihe camp with regard to  the relative position of hydraulic  lease-holders and the placer miners,  I would suggest, with your-permission, that the question might be  ventilated  through   your   columns,  after the Gold   Commissioner gives J  liim notice of the execution   of the  lease; - -,- -but in case the applicant  fails lo   perform his part iii  accord- i Einest of liquors  ance with his application,   llieii the  twenty   dollars deposited   shall be  forfeited  Vo   the  .Government, and  his application shall be void.

The Act cannot  be so construed as to give both  placer miner and leaseholders possession to Ihe same ground at one  and the same time.  We believe thateuaclment should  be made refusing lo grant any more  hydraulic  leases unless the ground  so covered shall have been abjudged  unprofitable for    individual   working, and that leases applied for and  not taken up according  to the Act,  ' should revert to  the Crown and be  open for individual re-location. The  hick of ground  open  for  location,  whichis not hlanki'Ti'ij hy i.hasi*  Ai'i'UCATioNs,   is keeping  out  incomers and   driving   out   our best  placer-mitters who have worked out  their miserable 100-foot claims.  Dutiable Plans.  Victoria, Dec 10th.��� Collector  of Customs Milne has seized the  New Westminster bridge plans, demanding $300 duty. The leca!  Government refuses to pay.  with the object of obtaining accurate in formation for our future  guidance.  For instance, it would be rather  disagreeable for some of our placer  miners if certain leaseholders should  lay legal hands on their output of  .guld I" and yet, owing to our  peculiar gold laws, such action is  apparently within the bounds of  possibility.  However well intentioned the  Government may be, it is evident  that, unless the laws in ihis and  some other respects, are carefully  revised, Ave are likely to experience  serious trouble amongst our mining  community in the neaV future. Wc  already have a crop uf litigation in  hand, which fact, reflects no credit  on the gold laws, and if these laws  were perfectly clear, and administered iu an efficient and equitable  manner, there would be no occasion .for any litigation whatever,  and a general stimulus would be  given lo the mining industry.  One of the existing anomalies in  the carrying out of the gold laws  is that the Government is liable to  derive fees from both placer claim  holders and hydraulic leaseholders  located 011 the same ground. Now,  it is certainly advisable that the  placer miners should be officially  notified of any Crown grants [leases  issued] for hydraulics that have already been sanctioned by the  Government, and it would also be  satisfactory to learn whether the  system of issuing Atlin hydraulic  leases from Victoria is altogether  compatible with the proper administration of the gold laws in this  district.  The practice of staking ground  by scribbling a few illegible lines  on th<? posts might well be abolished, and various other reforms are  required for the benefit of the  miners and the promotion of progress on these goldfields.���Yours,  etc., Eio-k MiiS'ivR.
