There is more encouragement to  Skagwayans 'in thesiUiation at the  present time than at any 'time in ���  the previous history of the city.  With the Porcupine trade secured  the development of Big Salmon and  the Stewart river countries, the  steady but sure growth of Dawson  ai.d Atliu, the future of Skagway  is ������ssiirod. Now, as a fitting climax to these certain tie.*', comes the  news of a great sliikc- 011 the  American Yukon, which is naturally tiibutary to Skagway as the'  I'orcupine or White Pass.

Before the next   issue  of "Thi*  Claim" can reach our subscribers  a new year will have begun   and we  take this opportunity of wishing one  and all A Happy New Year���a year of  true prosperity.   IBOt will  be  the  third year of this Camp's existence  and promises to be one of great   development . along      many     lines.  Though  we, knowing the mineral  resources of the Atlin  district, may  have been impatient at the apparent  lack of interest hitherto shown by  the outside investor,   still  the   fact  remains that the progress made" by  the best mining camps of the   Continent has been slow: the history of  Cripple    Creek    and  of Kooteuay  shows this.    But in  time ���and  we  venture to say but a short time--  our District will excite  the  atten-  tion" it deserves.    Capital will  be  eager to find investments here and  Atlin will soon be as well known 11  the World as Coolgardie is  to-day.  The following letter appeared in  the New York Engineering and Mining Journal, of the 17th November  last. .       "  Many of our readers will remember .Mr. E. P. Spalding *M. E. who  spent considerable time in the spring  and summer of the present year in  examining hydraulic and other mining properties in this district.  The examinations made by Mr.  Spalding 'while here were very  thorough and prolonged and his  opinion of the prospects for successful mining in this Camp, published for the first time iu this letter,  is valuable.  Sir: In your last.notice of the  ������Famous Gold Nuggets of the  World," on page 513 of the November 3rd issue, you say: "Contrary lo general belief, Alaska and  Yukon has produced no large nuggets."  Strictly speaking this may be so,  but the Atlin district in British Columbia produces many fair sized  nuggets and has, to my certain  knowledge produced at least two  that may fairly be called large.  While in the Atlin district recently,  examining hydraulic propositions,  it was my good fortune to see these  two nuggets, which I photographed.  One of these was picked up on a  bench claim just below discover-  on Pine Creek, July 21st, -900, and  weighs 29 ounces 10 pennyweights  11 grains, valued at $472, The  other was picked up on Discovery  Claim Boulder Creek', about August 1 st. 1900, aud weighs 4S ounces 1 2 pennyweights, valued at $778  Bolli' of these nuggets were abso-  lntelv free of quart/, or other rock.  It a-is   notable    tact   that   nearly  everv Creek iu the district produces  for saving.such gold are employed.  Permit me to say, while on this  subject, that if the real facts with regards to this, field were known and  unterstood more fully by American  capital and mining men, they would  very soon embrace ihe opportunities  that exist there. In no field that  I know of personally, are the opportunities for large and long operations iu hydraulic aud dredge mining as good as in the Atlin District.  Iw my opinion the District will  prove a permanent and very profitable producer- of the noble metal for  many years from its alluvial deposits alone. Besides these the outlook  for quartz mining is very promising.  Gold, silver, lead and copper have  been found in paying quantities  under certain conditions, and as  rapidly as the' necessary capital can  be secured development will be  prosecuted "on many claims of real  surface merit.  '   E. P. Spalding.  *    Chicago, Nov. 8th, 1900  [Our reference to the  absence  of  nuggets from Alaska and   the  Yukon was not intended to cover   the  Atlin country.    We have heretofore  spoken of nuggets from' that  district, and published  an  illustration  of one in our issue of August   191I1,  1899,    page    215.���Editor,  E.   &  M. J-]  3.

' This undertaking of co-operative  r. respecting on the "Race Horse"  group of hydraulic leases near town'  is a local enterprise from s'-art to  finish.��� The "idea of taking tip the  ground for .hydraulic and dredging  purposes, and of thoroughly prospecting it, was conceived by the  pioneers of the Camp���by the men  who have withstood the battle and  the breeze of both winter and summer ���- and their success is w:ell merited.  Every dollar expended in developing this property, and it now  runs into the thousands, has been  provided locally in Atlin town.  None of the contributors will claim  to be capitalists, nor even well fixed.  The co-owners of the " Race  Horse" group and the co;workers  who are now developing the property are typical representatives of a  genuine mining spirit that should  pervade every crevice in Atlin. Such  spirit goes far to make up for the  lack ot outside capital that has been  a hindrance to the Camp up to the  present.  This party of enterprising  workers are preparing the way for capital |  to come into the Camp,   aud to  in- |  stall  a plant  on a well  prospected '  property that will   bring   handsome  returns to the investors and will  be  a source of pride to the town-  Most   of   the   readers     of    the  "Claim" are familiar with   the successful prospecting carried  on  last  winter under the direction   o(   Mr.  i Mackintosh.  By  sinking  on what he allowed  nothing but coarse gold,   which   is !to be a�� old channel of Pine, he got  verv easilv saved inthe riffles with- ]"W": averaging iS cents per cubic  out" the uid'of quicksilver.

'  Encouraged by the foregoing,  arrangements weie entered into  with W. H. T. Olive to continue  the prospecting by driving a tunnel  froin bed-rock on Fine Creek, just  below Me. Kee Creek bridge, to one  ' of Mackintosh's pay shafts 1200 ft',  up stream. The tunuel,.is now driven  about .150 .feet, including a short  open cut, and with encouraging  prospects.  It is anticipated that the "pay"  underlying the clay will*" be struck  at less tha:; 100 feet ahead. It' is  the intention to hilly prospect the  extent ot the pay gravel, and this  will take all winter. Iu this connection tunnelling, drifting and sinking  are being carried on successfully  elsewhere in this Camp, during  these winter mouths,.and there are  moremen at work now' than this time  last year. To all' such good hearty  toilers, and particularly tothe "Pine  Creek Tunnel Syndicate." "The  Claim" wishes every success.  P INE CHRISTMASFESTIVAL  You should have been, there .-to'  see the decorations iu Mc. Donald's  Hall and tlie laden tables in the  tdiiiing room. You should have  been there to partake of the splendid  old fashioned supper, prepared, by  the ladies of Pine and Gold Run to  satisfy the hunger of the men on  claim aud trail, and remind them of  old days. You should have been  there to hear the songs and recusations and especially the address of  welcome to the pastor and people,  bachelors and married folk, read  by our "one little girl" Lorrie  Knittel. And you should have  been there to hear the cheers for  Miss Mc. Donald when her gift of  20 pies to the bachelors was announced. To James Stables M. L.  A. the chairman of the Committee,  and to those who so willingly and  well seconded his plans and efforts  to make this Festival what it was ���  a great success.���the utmost praise  is due. It was a good clean wholesome festival from start to firjish���  so say all of us-���Atlin people Pi', e  City people and all the people.  But do you know we were about  to forget the Tree. It was a notable  tree, laden from topmost branchlel  to the ground with useful gifts a  gilt for every ne, fiom tbe minister  who got a cap big enough for  even his big head, and the best  black tie in the camp, and a pair of  hue gauntlets and a doyley for bis  wife aud the leg and claw of the  biggest of Stuart's . turkeys, down  to the babies in arms whose parents  went home laden with babies  gifts.  1  The following is the programme.

' ^��������������� ^ (  ATLIN   CHRISTMAS  FESTIVAL. ,  This is the brief story of another  Christmas festival similar in some  ways to that at Pine, -dissimilar in  others. "There areabcut'30 children in Atlin, the majority of them  girls, there are just one girl and  four boys iu Pine, so that there the  older people did most, had to. In  Atlin the old people got well out of  it. The Rev. F. L. Stevenson made  remarks here and there aud kept  the people on the alert, as a good  chairman always does; and James  Stables,M. L..-A. gave a short and  happy address. But it-was after  'all .a children's programme.. The  Carols and drills, and other songs  took the audience of grown up  people captive and carried them  away to other days and other scenes.  There was a song by Maggie Mc.  Donald, a recitation by Walter Blackett, a recitation by Eleanor Wollas  ton and another by Ethel Pillman.  The children gave evidence of  being carefully trained. It was  remarked by more than one * or two  in the audience, that every word in  song and recitation could be distinctly  heard iu ihe remotest corner of the  church.  Two friends had purchashed and  given the committee, for the children, the whole stock of toys etc. in  town and the children were bubbling over with expectation and  were not disappointed.  Mr. Pringle at the close of the  entertainment expressed the thanks  of all to Messrs. Byrom and Wrong  for their kindness.  The evening closed with games  by the children, in which some of  the older people showed that at  least they were growing old gracefully and had lost little of the spirit  or sprightliness of earlier days.  The last Christmas of the   19 th.  century will never be  forgotten   by  those   who enjoyed its festivities   in  the Atliu District.'  The Atlin City programme follows.
