The   following extracts-are from  the annual mining  review   ol"   the  Nelson   Daily News,   published   on  the 31st Dec. last:  -   "In    Cassiar district Atlin is the  chief producer,  in   fact,-  nearly the  whole of the mineral  production   of  this northern part of British Columbia has, ever since 1S9S,   beeii   contributed  by the Atlin mining division.    Its   aggregate   production   to  date is in excess of $3,500,000. -Its  highest   yield   in airy oire year was  in    1S99,    wheir  a total recovery of  $Soo,ooo was   made.    In   igor    ils  production fell to $300,000, but each  year since then has seen an increase.  East year's (190.1) total was  $530,-  000,   aird  it  is estimated that there  was  a   rather   higher   recovery  iir  1905.  "That Atlin will irr 1906 make an  even   betler   showing   irr regard to  yield   of   gold   may be   taken   for  granted,   .unless   it experiences an  unprecedented shortage of water���a  remote   contingency,    by the   way.  Willi dredges and steam shovels  to  facilitate 'the  handling of gravel orr  a much larger, scale than   has   been  possible ir: past years, there should  be more gold recovered than during  any one  of the five years since tlie  first big season's  results   were   obtained.      Dredge   mining    for  gold  has   been   made  profitable irr both  Kcw Zealand (where it is carried on  ou a larger scale) and in California.  It see me quite reasonable   to   look  for   similar   success   at Atlin   now  that the chief difficulties  appear  to  have been overcome.  "The individual placer miner has  been to a considerable extent superseded by the company witlr its  larger capital and greater facilities  for economical and profitable ruining. There are slid creeks which  are exceptions to this rule, and  these have been energetically worked. New discoveries have been reported, but these have not yet been  proved of sufficient value to cause  any "stampede," such as   are   com-  Tor.derefl to '.'Jr. and Mrs. J. II.

Atlin sufiered two defeats at hockey on   Sai urdiiy last,    when    both  Alie   senior   aud^ junior  learns were  worsted   by like -combinations fiom'  ���Discovery.    The  seniors   took   the  lice   at  about 2.30 p.m. and the Allin    hoys   got   busy right from thc  call of "play" and made n'ush   utter  ���rush   on   their  opponents  goal and  1)3' quarter time had   succeeded   in  j'coriii"    three   goals.      The   early,  part ol" the second quarter was most-,  . ly shinncy arrd   much   irough . play  took   place.     W. Sweet and ,F. Mc-  TMrec were fenced   for   two   minutes  ���each   for   fouling, while  oire or two  ���others were warned to "cut it out."  During this quarter Disco very scored  tiheir fust goal and Allin added  an-  ���other to the good, the standing  be-  - ing 4 lo .r.    J11   the   third   quarter''  Discovery .worked    well   and SGored  ���two  goals   to .the home team's one.  But the last quarter was  when   'the'  ���fire-works   really  commenced   and  ���the   Discover}' men,   who  had.hus-  ���barrded   their   strength    for a   last'  -effort,    played  all-round   Atlin and'  ���stacked up four more goals to  their'  ' opponents nil.    The  game ithusire-  sulted  irr   a wiir for Discovery by a;  ���score of 7 I0.5.

Al   limes  -during   the  game good  hockey was   played by both teams,  but   there .were   too many off-sides  and considerable sluggino- and cross-  .checking  -throughout    the    game.  .Atlin  started   out well but were all  "iir" during the last quarter.

But both teams played  well arid-there was more real hockey  furnished by them than by their  predecessors.
