 ATLII  VOL.   8.  ATLIN, B. CM SATURDAY,  FEBRUARY   14,   1903.  'NO.  187  THE CAMPAIGN.  Good Work Accomplished By  the Opposition,  .Tho Atlin Vote Had Little Effoct  on the Majority ���-The Best  Man Elected.  Contrary to our expectations,  there was a good deal of enthusiasm shown in Monday's election,  especially by the coterie of Fo-  leyites, with the result that the  number of votes polled .-considerably exceeded our calculations,  and the  Foleyites  won ,the day in  ��� this district.'although the majority  '.here against  Macpherson did not  materially affect the safe majority  he had previously obtained from  ��� other parts of the constituency. ������-It  cannot be denied that the Foley  advocates won the day upon,the  strength of a "fake" trlegram,  claiming that Macpherson had a  majority   of  only   23.    This,   to-  ��� gether with the chance occurrence  that the first men to reach Ruby  creek, during the recent stampede,':  were Macpherson supporters," gave  tlie opposition an opportunity.-.to  wiu over many of those who would  otherwise have supported the Government candidate. Political issues  were entirely cast aside and local  issues apparently carried the day.  The  votes  recorded  at  the different polling stations stand thus :  Mac.

From the latest returns of the  ��� election'from Vancouver,. Macpher-  son's majority, exclusive of Atlin,  was  249.    A few' points have'still  ,   to be heard from, and it is conceded  the total  majority from  the whole  constituency will be in the neighborhood of 250.  One million dollars will be spent  .by; the Canadian Pacific Railway  this year in improvements on their  road in British Columbia. Exten-  tensive improvements will at once  be proceeded with on the company's wharves and docks in.Vancouver.  A libel suit has arisen out of the  late campaign. R. G. Macpherson  and Robert Kelly are suing the  News-Advertiser and Chas. W.  Murray.  The. new twin-screw steamer,  "Princess Victoria," built at New-  castle-on-T.yue for the ferry service of the C. P. R. between Vancouver and Victoria, left that por.t  last week for Vancouver. On arrival she will be fitted out for the  service, and, it is expected,'will be  _     running by the first of May.  At  a Premium.  ��� A promising sign for the outlook  of development on the Engineer  mine is the fact that the Company's  stock has been selling at a premium of "zyd cents per share.. The  treasury stock of ihe Company has  all'been subscribed for, and with  the completion of the installation  of the machinery, 11 dw all on the  ground, an era of prosperity is confidently looked for. Great credit  is paid to the president, Mr. W. R.  King, and   to   the Secretary,  Mr.  Oscar Gard, for the able mariner in  which"they have conducted the  Coriipaiiyjs affairs during the past  half year. <  ���~ What For?  the '.'Ledge," of New Denver,  has beeii" prohibited the use of the  mails, for what reason, the proprietor is at a loss to understand. The  " Ledge!' ranks first "as an Independent newspaper in the West.   -  Subscribe for the Claim.  For Atlin's Welfare.  ���   ;    -       , !  Branch of the B. C. Miners' Association Formed for This  District.      The Delegates Appointed.  We are delighted to see that our  efforts in connection with the appointment of delegates to meet in  convention in Victoria- on the 25th  inst, for the purpose of organizing  a British Columbia Miners' Association, have met with . general approval.- Literature was received by  nearly everyone in -camp, giving  "details of the preliminary "meetings  iuJ7ictor%ia,. together .with the. proposal of organization and the general objects of the Association.  ' There is no necessity for us to  enlarge upon the proposed Associ-  tiod, except to say that we have  reason to believe the British Columbia Miners' Association, properly  conducted, will be productive of  an inestimable amount ol good to  the mining industry of the Province at large.  . The initial steps were taken bya  ftw prominent citizens of Atlin,  last Saturday, who arranged for a  public meeting in Discovery, the  center of the mining industry in  the camp. In response to the call,  a very large number of miners  assembled at the Nugget Hall,  when the Atlin Branch of the British Columbia Miners' Association  was formed, pending formal organization of the parent body in Victoria by the delegates when convened. The chair was occupied  by.Mr. H. Cancellor. and Rev. F.  L. Stephenson acted as Secretary.  The speakers of the meeting that  evening were: Messrs. D. Ross,  H. P. Pearse, Grime, Stephenson  Kirkland and many others. The  meeting was adjourned till Monday at the same place and hour.  At the adjourned meeting held  on Monday evening, there was one  of the l'argest and most representative gatherings which has of late  ever met together. One hundred  and forty men signed the roll. By  the receipt of literature, since the  the previous meeting, there was  little need of further explanation as  to the:11alure of t''e movement'and  the appointment of delegates was  the only business of importance be  fore tlie meeting. The member-  bership enrolled entitled the'local  Association to seven delegates, and  the following were elected : Frank  Dockrill, T. Blair," A.. P.. Thomas,  J. Letherdale, W. W. Grime, H.  P. Pearse and O. M:-Johnstone. An  Executive Committee consisting of  .the^following was appointed:.R.A.  Jackson, H.E. Symmons; H. Ca'ii-  .celldr, I��_.McLeq~d'and-.A. Walters.  Finance .Committees were chosen  for the different sections of the district for the - purpose of raising  funds with which to pay the expenses of the delegates who should  be sent to Victoria���the number of  these depending upon the total  amount subscribed.-  These meetings could not be  said to be altogether harmonious,  for, as is invariably the case iu this  country, there are always some  men whose views are so narrow  that they cannot see good in anything pertaining to the advancement'of >-the community or the improvement of the conditions surrounding our mining industry.  .The.local branch Association was  further strengthened by the addition of about sixty names enrolled  in Atlin as the result of meetings  held in the A. O. U. W. Hall, in  Atlin, on the evenings of Tuesday  and Wednesday of this week.  Three delegates were nominated to  represent. the additional membership, and the names of Messrs.  Stables, Dubois-Mason and Kirkland were recommended by the  Atlin members to be added to those  already elected.  At the meeting of the Executive  Committee, held in Discovery on  Thursday evening, the reports of  the various Finance Committees  were handed in. Upwards of $500  was raised, and it was decided to  send the following gentlemen  to represent Atlin at the Convention, subject to confirmation  by the full meeting of the Association this afternoon'.:' H. P. Pearse,  Captain Hathorn and Frank  Dockrill.    '  A TREATY.  The Boundary (Question Be-  ,   fore the Senate.  J.'H. Ross, M.P. for,Yukon, May  Get a Portfolio���End of the  Maybrlck Case.   'r -  The recent-coast  papers devoted ,  much   space   to   the signing of a  treaty, by representatives of Great ,  Britain and the United States, providing for   the   settlement  of   the   '  Alaskan Boundary Question.  The treaty provides for the reference of all the boundary questions to a mixed tribunal of jurists,  three on each '. side, to determine  the interpretation to be placed on  the Treaty of 1825, between Great  Britain and Russia, which defined  the Boundary between British".,  America and Alaska.' -  >���  The commission ' proposed "is  curious in composition, consisting  of an equal number of members upon each sidej' without an umpire or  odd man to cast the deciding vote.  No. other term's <.of "arbitration,. .  it is said-; would'have- been accept- ���  able.to the.people*-of the--North-  west, who see in this arrangement  a practical extinction of any chance  of a decision  hostile to their plans.  The treaty will be submitted to  the Senate for ratification .before  the expiration of the present  session. .'  The Eastern press assert that the  prevalant feeling in the East is that  the' longer it is left as it is, the  odds against Canada will be  growing.  "According to recent telegraphic  advice, it seems probable that. ex-  Governor Ross, M.P.-elect for the  Yukon, will receive a Cabinet position, and that a Portfolio of Mines  will be created for him. This is  an honor which will, doubtless, be  appreciated by our Northern neighbors.  The proclamation has appeared,  summoning the Dominion Parliament to assemble on March 5th.  A well known case, which has  from time to time created much international interest, the Maybrick  murder case, will be relegated to  history by the release of Mrs. May-  brick next month.  Mr. L. M. West, of Seattle, has  succeeded J. H. Kelly, well known  in Atlin, as Skagway Agent of the  Pacific Coast Steamship Co.  All unappropriated Dominion  lands iu the Northwest and the  Yukon have been thrown open to  prospectors for petroleum.  The British War Office has decided to invite tenders from Canadian farmers for the supply offrefeh  meat to the British army in South  ���Africa.  1    .    .  >>��� ���***Lf**t**i ii/mb  ATLIN,    B.

' Montreal, Jan. 30th.,��� Si'gnor  Ma'rconi arrived here today to consult wiih the directors ofithe Canadian Company.    He intimated that  within two months a regular commercial ' telegraph   business,   conducted'by    wireless    telegraphy,  would be established between Eng-  land'aud 'Canada.     The  Wireless  Company has   decided rthat-   the  charge for the transmission of messages   will 'be 10'cents, as'against  the Cable Company's" tariff- of- 25  cents  a   word,   for   trans-Atlantic  telegrams.

Special attention  will'be  given-to  Ca'nadian news or news in England  in  which l Canada  is especially interested  but  which ' is now practically enlii'ely'lo'st sight of."  At a recent meeting o'f the shareholders of the Eastern-^Telegraph  Co., in London, the chairman,-Sir  John \Volfe Barry, declared that  the people who were best qualified  to speak on the subject, still lield  theopinion that the wireless system of transmission could1 never- lie  a serious rival- of the cables for  long-distance -.transmission..

The ore is'being sacked and  t  shipped to the, Crofton Smeller, al  Crofton, B.C., for treatment. Two  hui.dred tons have already gone  forward. The owners slate Jiat  they have blocked out on Ihe first  level about 10,000 tons of ore which  could be taken out and shipped at  once, but they are at present handicapped   by   the  s'mallness of'-Vlieii  of  Princess May to Run. -  The last monthly circular issued  by the Canadian Pacific Navigation Company, Ltd., announces  thai ihe steamci 1 iii:ccss May will  be placed on llie VaucO'ivor-Skag-  way route abunl Maich isl, and  will run on a ten' day schedule.'  The sailing.datcs will b'J announ-ced  lalcr.  plant   and   the   extra  expense  sacking the ore.  It   is   the   expectations   of- the  owners to instal a plant within tlie  ���next three   mouths  wliiclmvill enable them  to" continue their development' work and 'bring their'shiu-  ments up to 50 tons a day. .  ..  The ore body in this property,  as-far''as'"it has -be'enj opened out,,  shows greater width'"-and better  average values than any 'copper  property on the Paeific coa��t, and  it is only a matter of"'lime'and  money and the addition of improved methods of handling, elc, when  the Grafter mine will be one of the  leading producers on the continent.  During the recent visit ofjMr.  Biewer, the ore-buyer for-the Crofton smelter, he expressed himself  as being very sanguine of thc prospects of this property, and lit-  made very advantageous terms to  the owners for the shipment of  their ore to Crofton.
