Editor Atlin 'Claim,'Allin, B. C.::
Dkar Sir,—As Iras been-uiy'cusr.
loin during my tcmiure of office, I
wish to' briefly outline to my constituents the progress marle.s;/ far
in ^ the preseirt session. rI was unable to be here Tor the opening, owing to thc length of my trip out, as
it took me two weeks to reach Victoria. 'However, matters have gorre
along quickly since then, and I
have beerr able to bring about some
good results for my district. In the
matter of the administration of the
"Placer Act""; I have .gone into this
fully with the department, and they
are doing everything Irr their power
to meet my wishes, arrd bring about
a just and equitable administration
of the law. A-s we all know, great
injustice was done in our district irr
the early days,' arrd it is a difficult
matter lo bring order out of chaos
all'at once.
"■ The  department has gone ahead
as quickly as they could, aud   have
met my wishes "in every waj*.
Anyone .holding- hydraulic property in our district will have lo
work or give up the ground and, at
my request, the department have
forwarded instructions to tire Gold
Commissioner insisting, upon a full
and final report up to the 31st Dee.,
,1905, and, beginning with the first
of the year, a quarterly report'ou
the standing of leases. There
should be rro occasion in the future,
when these orders are carried out,
for any complaint iir this   direction.

with the Minister of "Mines, an
amendment to the Act providing
for air enlargement of tlie placet-
claim, and hope to be able to carry
■this through. 'I am :tueeting with
a great deal of oppositiorr lo'il-as,
they are very much averse in lire
house to tinker with lhe Placer or
Mineral Acts. Mining matters in
the province, in general, are iir such
a prosperous condition -that everyone here, on both sides of the house,
deem it lo be inopportune at this
lime to open the Acts, but I do not

iiexl letter to lie able to report thc

During the past summer there
was considerable staking iir the Tcs-
lin Lake .'-district. The records of
such claims'have lobe kept at Telegraph Creek. As this 'whole, country is tributary to Atlin, arrd as the
present arrangement causes great
inconvenience, I laid lire matter before the department and they have,
at my-request, added the Teslhi district to the Allin Milling Division.
This embraces all the territory at
Volcanic creek, Consolation creek
and clear south lo the Taku river.

Legislature as  seen by the Victoria Colonist man  on Jan. 27th:  Towards lhe end of the week lhe  legislative ardor of thc House cooled  off, arrd is fairly guaged by a thirty-  minute . session orr Friday, and an  adjournment from then until .Mod  day. The actual sessions of tlie  week covered about ten hours, but  this furnishes no criterion of the  amount of'work done by the members, who do far more in comruiitee  and caucus than in the house itself,  "which has become more of a registration bureau than a legislative  "factory.  Several good speeches were delivered during the week, one of lhe  best being that of Air. W. J. Bowser  in reply to Mr. John Oliver on the  Dewdney measure. Air. Bowser is  a forceful and excellent fighter when  roused, is regularly iir the house,  in constant request, and looks like  C  "coming man."  Another indefatigable worker oir  the government side is Dr. Young,  thc chairman of the private bills  committee. Everything he does is  done with a business-like air that  begets confidence and respect.  Thc ministers are constant iir attendance at every session. The  Premier says little, and only rises to  a large fly, but what he does say is  always pointed and impressive. He  is cultivating by degrees a somewhat,  nonchalant air, which is not alto-:  gether out of keeping with his build  and general appearance, but it is  only orr'the surface, as his opponents well know, for they never catch  him napping.  Horr. Chas. Wilson, the attorney-  general, is easily lhe busiest man iir  tlie house. So far he has monopolized almost every silting with important aud voluminous amendments  to the defective legislation of his  predecessors, arrd whilst genial lo  all, and anxious at all times to compromise, one cannot resist the feeling  that Ire often yearns for those old  Cariboo days, when there was some  excitement really worth having.  Capt. Tallow is by common consent a model finance minister, who  talks little and contents himself with  sticking to business. He is always  in his place.  Would you know lire "deux ex  machine" of the administration?  The man who says little, yet sees  all.   Tire man who is retiring to the  verge of self-effacement, yet lias to  be reckoned with, every time. The  man who beneath the velvet scabbard wears a sword of steel. The  man who combines the inscrutable  diplomacy of a Macbiavelli, witlr  much of lhe political foresight of a  Richelieu, then look lo the seat iir  the rear where the Horr. R. F.  Green is installed.  On Tuesday evening about twenty  members 'of  Atlin   Lodge, No. 15,  A. 0. U. W.,   drove   to Discovery  arrd   were   lhe guests of Camp Discovery, No. 19, Aictic Brotherhood,  at   a   social   gathering   which  was  held in'tire A. Ii. hall.   The interior  of lhe A. B's.' home   was   cosy and  cheerful  and everything was agreeably'arranged   so   that the visitors  should   thoroughly enjoy the  evening's  euleitaininent.     The walls of  the   hall   were  tastefully decorated  with bunting and lore of the society,  conspicuous among the latter being  thc Arctic Brotherhood motto, "No  Boundary Line Here."    The hosts,  garbed in the regalia of their order,  received their guests witlr open arms  and   warm    hearts.     Arctic   Chief  I-I. K. Brown   occupied   the "chair,  while N. C. Wheeling,   acting Master Workman of Atlin Lodge, A. O.  U. W., and   Gold Commissioner J.  A. Fraser were   in  the  vice-chairs.  The Arctic Chief delivered a   short  address   in   which   he exterrded a  most hearty welcome to   the  guests  assembled   and then  introduced the  following programme, every number  of which was rendered with vim and  well received:  Selection, by the orchestra, composed of Messrs. Thos. Hanira and  Chas. Hickman, violins; Jrro. Cartmel, cornet, aud J. Pilling, piano;  song, "The Diver," W. E. Fisher;  song, "There's a Picture for You,"  C. Hickman; short speech, C. Cul-  len; reading, "La Vierrx Temps,"  Geo. A. Kerr; selection, orchestra;  song, "Rowan Tree," and encore  "Tlie Scottish Immigrant," N. C.  Wheeling; slump speech, "A Dutchman's Fourth of Jul}'," with soirg  encore "Sauer Kraut," C. Prescotc;  slump speech, "Which lie Was,  Yet," Rev. A. M. Ross; song, "A  Long Way to Go," and encore  "Running Up and Down Our  Stair," C. Hickman; remarks on  "Social Gatherings, Fraternal Societies, etc.," J. A. Fraser.  The chairman at this point declared an intermission of half air  hour, during which refreshments  were served and, everybody having  kindled fresh "smokes," the programme was resumed with a selection by the orchestra; speech, "A  Song Without Words," Rev. F. L.  Stephenson; song, "The Lass of  Richmond Hill," Geo. Cassels; recitation, "The Cow's Cud," C. Cul-  len; song, "One Single Word," W.  Ii. Fisher; soirg, "Kingdom Come,"  C. Prescolt; song, "A Glasgow  Policeman," Jas. Dick; reading,  "Mon Frere Camille," Geo. A.  Kerr; soirg, "Judge Duffy," and  encore "Between Love and Duly,"  J. Cartmel; selection, orchestra;  song, "The Benches irr the Park,"  and '.'encore "A Dear Little Dicky  Bird," C. Hickman; song, "The  Light Brigade," arrd encore "Dor-  kin's Night," K. Sands.  Mr. N. C. Wheeling moved a vote  of thanks to the Arctic Brotherhood  for the good entertainment provided,  and tire members of the two societies  gave three cheer for each other.  The singing of the national anthem brought to a close one of the  most enjoyable social 'gatherings  which has ever taken place in the  camp, and much credit is due the  Arctic Brotherhood for the success  which the affair proved.  fin -awo  Wuv ki:ni. oin- wiikk voir can <;j;t cioiiiik as i-iikai- iii:hk ?

Editor of Tiik Atmn Cuiji  jD.kau Sir,���A letter hour the  pen of Kev.. A. M." Ross, iu your  "issue oT Jan. 20II1, drew our attention lo lhe petition emanating 'ironn  and   being circulated Tor signatures  '' throughout Canada by the association known as lhe "Lord's Day Alliance." As the principles' involved  ���irr this matter are-wider and deeper  . than at first appear. 1 think .some of  the salient points are worth considering.  To me it seems that the intention  ���of the petition,-though couched iirr  ������language which conveys the idea,  that the legislation sought -is the  .protection of individual rights, is in  ���reality mi attempt against the free-  ���dorn of aotiorr ol the individual.  While I am in sympathy with the  principle of keeping one clay in seven  ���apart for .bodily rest and soul development, I submit that the L. I->.  A. is taking the wrong road to attain it; the name of tlie alliance is  ���sufficient proof that the avowed object is the keeping of the Christian  Sunday, that this is air essentially  religious subject none can deny and  to attempt to coeice men lo observe  ���a religious tenet savors of lhe dark  ���ages and religious tyranny. If the  ���legislation   sought was eiracted and  ��� enforced it would bring antagonism  to the principle the alliance seeks to  inculcate', and .further, it would  brirrg discredit on the church which  fathered it.  Thc Sabbatarian .law worked well  under the pr-iinilive-Israelitish conditions, but iir the 20th century in-the  -midst of our complex civilization' it  ���would be impracticable. That-these  are no idle wares, consider one clc-  iplorable result that would follow the  enactment of a Sunday law; it is  granted that the chief object of the  act is the slopping of the Sunday  tram car. service, Sunday excursion  ���trains and consequently all lhe vast  amount of work-concomitant thereto;  -these very trams and trains are provided so thai the poorer classes of  the population of our great cities  can, for a small sum, enjoy a day  ���orrce a week in the pure air of the  .country. This would be stopped.  The rich could roll to church or to  the park in their cushioned carriages, but the poor would have to  endure their Sunday iu the sordid  ���surroundings of their week day  homes. It is a very .nice, very  ;Utopiarr picture���that of a whole  nation keeping one day apart, for-  ���getting work arrd all rrecessary pursuits, to spend the day worshipping  God, but it cannot be brought about  by legislation. Far- better to try, as  Mr. Ross himself suggests, by appeal to the individual conscience of  man.  But, sir, is there any inherent  merit in the keeping of one particular 24-hours in the week? .Personally, the Pauline principle, enunciated   in   Rom. XIV., ,5  and  6,   is  ���sufficient  both for myself, aird also  to judge others by.  Apart from the religious element  in  the subject, it is universally ad-  .mitted that from an economic standpoint .men and animals work better  when they have one rest day in  seven, and, this taing so, it would,  be for the .nationail, betterment if ��'C  would 5cuil our endeavors���(so thati  except in circumstances where business necessity-or t-be immediate interests -of ���lmru'.ani'ty requires the]  continuance of work on Sunday)������  to secure lo every man the option ofi  having one -day in rUic week to;  himself. '    ��� :  In working our placer (and cs-j  pccially ��ur hydraulic) unines, where1  ���every'day of-water is of value and}  the loss of twenty Sundays i>n thej  open season might make the -difference .between profit aud loss, I be-f  ilieve thai, by mutual agreement he-;  tween the 'management an'd flic  men, every man could have the~op-  tioir of having one free clay a week.  A little thought shows that this re-i  quires only one extra man for every,  six employed. The principle could!  be applied to tram arrd railroad services, arrd, if required, made ..tlrej  subject of legislation. This would'  be a practical way of making the',  enjoyment of oire day in seven op-i  tional to every man. That there:  would be difficulties in the way, I:  ���.admit, but "where there is .a will,  there is a way," .,.  Yours obediently, |  .Ar,I/RKD   dVllMICHAKr.,      '  Otter Creek, Feb. 4th, 11906.
