Yesterday evening, the night of  Atlin's Christmas tree, was one  which, undoubtedly, will long be  remembered hy the very large  gathering who witnessed the advent  of Santa Claus to Atlin.  The entertainment was so uniriue1 joined in the chorus by the little  and was so perfectly carried out ones.

The  entertainment was held in the Presbyterian L Church which was most  tastefully decorated ���though the  building was too small to hold ihe  immense crowd who desired to witness the performance. The details  of the programme, as far as concerned the children, were in the  hands of Miss Hughes, and we  do not pay her too high a compliment when we say that these were  perfect. We also understand that  she arranged all the par's,'which'  made a very happy blending of the  uever-to-be-lorgolteu fairy tales of  our childhood. Miss Hughes and  Mr. Lumsden acted the. parts of  of father and mother grieving over  the absence of their children on this  festive season, when one by one the  girls and boys appear in costume:  lit hei Pillman, as a nurse, touched  the hearts of the audience by-, her  beautifully   delivered / piece ;    the  her untiring effons of the last  several       weeks. The dia  logue was prepared by her and all  who were fortunate in witnessing  the entertainment showed their appreciation by their generous applause. Several solos were sung by  the children, by Miss Hughes and  by Mr. Lumsden, all of which were  most heartily enjoyed. Mr. Pilling  faithfully performed his duty at the  organ, ably assisted by our old  friend, Mr. HatuHke, with his violin, while we must not forget the  indispensable Maid of All Work,.  Daisy Durie, whose duties kept her  ever 011 the move, but did not dis-  pellllie winning smile she had for  everybody.  At the close of the programme, ������  the sleigh bells of Santa Clans were  heard and riveted the attention of  youngsters, and oldsters, alike.  He was most, lavish with his gifts,  and regrets were heard that it was  "so long till next Christmas."  A pleasing presentation was.made  to Miss Hughes on behalf of the  school children and their parents of  a beautiful Atlin nugget chain,  which was feelingly acknowledged. V

we wish   all   our   patrons   and the
public a most prosperous New \"car.
Il   is   our   intention   to   give mil-
readers   a  general   resume   of  the
year's   prog res.., in   the district, together wilh   interesting  vital slalis-
tistics  concerning   the   work ol"development.     During ihe next week
or so a special  issue of the Claim
will   be   issued,    and,   as   we  will
print a number   of extra   copies we
hope   the   increased    demand   will
recompense us.
With next week's issue each subscriber will receive a beautiful coloured picture, iS by 24 inches, of

worth framing.
That a mass meeting should  be
found necessary to suggest the performance,   by  delinquent   officials,
ol a plain and self-suggesting duty,
is another of .l!*.e   ma:iy absurdities
for'which-this camp is now famous
and   to   which   it  owes its unique-
place in mining annals. . Unless the
Menzies' ' leaseholders    can   show
cause why their  grants  should not
be leciarecl   rorl'citefl   and cancelled
for non-compliance with   Ihe conditions ol" their respective'leases, it is
so   clearly the   routine  duty.of the
Cold Commissioner and the   Minister of .Mines lo so declare Ihein thai
we cannot but   wonder  the  matter
has been so  long  left  iu abeyance.
So much of  the   ground  blanketed
by these leases is either legally held
by   individual   claim-owners   or is
still vested in   the  Crown and open
lo   location,  thai  'this     particular
group   ol    leaseholds   should  have
been   firmly taken   in  hand by Mr.
Graham   long  ere -this, in order to
definitely   limit   or  indefinitely extend   the   area   available for individual drill mining.    Once the value
of   the   ground, to   Life  individual
miner, was made  known lo him by
the development  work of the   past
two seasons, the opportunity should
not have been allowed to slip to retrieve   the   error   of  judgment by
which   the   only   real   drifting proposition   iu the district was permitted to pass out of the possession ol"
the hard working mirier into that of
the    idle   aud     speculative    leaseholder.     This   holding of   corner

For a County Court Judge.
Recent'telegraphic reports slated
thai the Boards .of Trade of Victoria and Vancouver had taken up
the question of appointing a County
Court Judge for Atiin. The following is quoted from an editorial in
the    "Colonist:"
" The affairs ol" Atlin came up for
consideration on account of some remarks addressed lo the Council by
.Mr. C. Dubois Mason. Mr. Mason,
among other things, spoke of the
need of a resident judge al Atlin,
and made oul a very strong case
for one. The Council decided to
memorialize the Provincial and
Dominion Governments on the subject. The most important featuie
of the case is due to the fact thai'

the things which should receive

We feel assured that the resolutions passed at the recent meeting
will receive instant att'jiilion by the
titles. The story of disputed claims
and of the injury done to the camp
by the inevitable., delay in haying
lilies settled would fill many columns, and would lie a recital of
which the people of liritisli Columbia would have no reason lo feel
proud. Atlin is a rich country.
