Tn coming5 again before  the public of Atlin, we ask what we  believe we are entitled to ask : the  hearty  support of the   entire community, and, receiving this , we have  no fear as to the future prosperity  of the paper itself .  We propose.-to conduct "The  Claim "on distinctly non-political and  non-party lines, believing, as we do,  that the best interest of the district  will be met by adopting this policy.  Our columns will always be open  to the public and. our aim will be,  the promotion of the mining and  other interests  of Atlin. _.  It is our firm conviction that we  have a great future before us in  this camp and we urge upon every  one, . especially our Pioneers, to  bear in miud**that "Rome was not  built in a- day,", -and .that Atlin  expects her sons to stand to -  gether and pull as "one man. Our  future is in our own hands;, .by uni-  ' ted action and- mutual support the  early development of'the District is  assured.  led that hydraulic workings will be  instituted iu the year 1901:- the  projects are now under consideration.  Ground lias lately been   prospected  in  different  part's of this   "Division (e.   g.,    on   Pine  Ceek   below  Surprise Lake, on Pine Creek within three miles of its mouth   and   at  the head of Spruce  Creek)   which  carries good values  and   will   yield  handsomely    for   working  by   the  method   of dredging.    Owing    to  lack of.grade this ground is not altogether suitable for  hydraulicking  and hence it-is proposed'to.mine -it  with modern dredges of the contitm-  ous'bucket type such as are so largely  and successfully used in  New   Zea:  land and California.  ( The  quartz   of the District   has  not  been  so much    prospected  as  the gravel, but from what is known  of the rock values it may  be safely  prophesied   that   Atlin   will  be  an  Important  gold-quartz    camp.     In  another column of this issue will'be  found a reference   to  the  principal  prospects    and ' the   work   done  in  developing some of them.  Nor does  gold  alone   represent  the   wealth   of the-camp.  , Silver,  Copper, Nickel, Mercury aud  Lead"  have all been found.

On Wednesday afternoon' a'hockey  match   was   played-  between.? sides  chosen by J.H.Gillard and F.E.Mc  Feely.    From a scientific   point of  view, the game showed little merit,  but was an excellent exhibition of  oi brute force and utter ignorance;  it consisted- chiefly  in'a series vof  scrimmages    wherever   .the   puck  happened  to be,   and looked more  like a whirlwind of feet,'clubs', heads  a lid skates'   than it-1 hockey1 nbfateh. j  Hitherto, the mortality in thec'aihp '  has been insignificant,   but   with a  similar game only once a week,-' sve  give the tip gratis, there should  be 1  a first class opening for an enterprising undertaker.  We should suggest that the play-.  ers pay a little more.regard .to  the  rules, and when scouring the woods j  for a club, choose one- suitable  for  the game for which, it is- intended, ;  and less as if they where going to!  take fencing lessons with an ourang.  outang.
