 J      1      /  tt\  . VQL.   8.  ATLIN, B. C, SATURDAY. FEBRUARY -7,'' 1903.  N0:,'.if*6*'  A STAMPEDE  Caused By Ruby Creek   Being '-Thrown.-Open.  Ov.e^ Two Miles of'-tho Crook-Was  Staked. In (Uro First Rush ���.  Ill-timed Assertions,-  The quiet serenity ol" these short  winter days was 1 trifled by a ripple of excitement during the early  davs of this week,, and for.once iu  marry months we hear of a stampede ! The people now domiciled  irr Lhe.district seem.so���well satisfied  '\yith what..they, .ha.yc. already,,in  sight that but very little thought is  given to the-possible opportunities  of the territory immediately outside our present surroundings. ��� In  the \piesent.'instance;, an old and  well known creek, whirh has been  held under hydraulic', leases, was  declared "open for location " on  Monday last.   '  A set, of four creek--, arrd. two  bench leases, taken-up bv. P. Wv  'Law,.in ,.900, on. Ruby cicek, hasi  remained.uuw,oikeel;,wjth the rent-  als.iiiai,reai.s, foi ir period, of ,ueai-  Iv two vears. -. Bv. order o'"j,he���De-  partment, these weie .declared cancelled, and the order took effect on  the 2nd inst. After thc postiirg  of the,Notice on,theX)fficial Bulletin Board, a stampede^ ensued. A  " discovery," it seems, Iras been  allowed, arrd this has fallen to Jack  Kirklarrd and Alec. Brown. Lums-  den and Pilling have, Nos. 1 arrd 2  below, and McKay and. McLeod  Nos. 1 and 2 above. , WTherr ��� the  news spread around during the day  the rush began in earnest/. Some  iS or 20 claims in all. have been  located.  Ruby creek, in the early days of  the camp, did not, ve tr* well recompense those.who held claims upon  it. The ground is . known -to be  deep, but Where 100-foqt claims  would nut pay 250-fpol ones may.  The.creelwis .within the.','auriferous belt.',' but tire creek valley may  not'prove of equal value.as a gold;  bearing creek, with its close neighbors, Birch arrd Boulder,,.for the  reason that its bed i.s floored with  basalt, the outflow from an old volcano, whose remains, a mountain  of scoria, lie immediately west of  the creek valley near its source.  If those who have now secured  claims enter into a little combination i'i their piospccting, il is not  .unlikely,- that the cteek.-will be  found to contain gold in paying  quantities.  Political agitato.rs have sought to  make capital out of this stampede,  but an examination of the records  will show that veiy few of the locators are even voters, while the  majority of theni.are from ���Pine.and  Boulder and., are, generally representative, of the district.

' A feeling of distiusi was very  rialuiiilly fell against the Fales  which deprived,'ii*-; ot 0111 right to  \;ote .with. the. rest of tlie constituency on .Wednesday last. Now that  the .election is praciicallv decided,  when the day is seftfoi this district,  tlieexcileme.it will have died down  and a feeling   of apatl.j be the re  sult. ' However, there is this satis-  inclioir," the -best inah\'has ���vvon.  The wires have 'been- down sirrce  Monday, and were "OrK" for-a  few minute's' yesterday, at noon,  just long enough to get a wire irr  arrrouncirg the fact that Mr. -Macpherson had a majority ol over 150,  with ir.any sure place's to hear from;  Chinaman vs. White Mian.  Interesting   Statistics    For   Those   Who- Would '-���Employ  '*, Chinese or Japs���Profit and-Loss.!.  The question of the.employment  of Oriental labor in,, the mines of  ��� British.Columbia has been hitherto discussed from, the standpoint of  the , possible, displacement .of'the  wjiite laborer, together with-the  universal bitter feelii'g against such  labor. 'Tlie following.-expression  of opinion gucs.onc.of. Ihe^tiongest  ���possible arguments againsl.-thcem-  'ployent ot Orientals-in mines from  the employees view point, and one  .which puts quite a different phase  oir .the the question. The authority  is Mr. J. B. Hobson, General Manager of the Cariboo Consolidated,  orre of the best known and reliable  mining,men ou the.Pacific Coast :  ���'He iiad.no use for Mongolians.  A careful account had been kept b\  his company, aud he, could .compare the,, Asiatics.with white labor  very readily. They bad been  forced to get Japs a-id Chinamen at  times when no other labor was  available, but  'it   was   the dearest.  they, could ;employ.- On-' the Cariboo (Consolidated'! and*.'Horsefly,  the ordinary white .laborers, .such  as .would.get. from <$r to, ,#i-.40'a  day on.the/.railway, \yere,,<:paid>$2.,-  50 a.day., They- were, charged 70  cents a ,day< for. board.-; These  white, men's -average <. work <.was  nine, cubic yards of excavation a  day, which,^ cost 27, cents "a yard  therefore . to the ^company. - The.  Japs had been paid $1.75 a day.;  .Their.,average day's work, was five  cubic, yards,;.;which cost.the company 35-cents ,-:a ..yard.; Chinese  had also .been employed, sometimes,  as., high , ai 20.0, .when no other,  labor was available.,.

This is an. iircrease.of  rooo over the previous year. The  total revenue derived from their  entry was $363,272, which costless  than one per cent to collect. The  census shows., that* in 1901 there  were 22,050 Chinese and Japs in  the Dominion at that time. Records show, that .more than one  half of those who land in British  Columbia, ,make .their way to  Manitoba, ��� O.rtaiio Quebec, aird  the Maritime Provinces, where  they seek employment.  1  Coal .Famine'.'  The,Eastern States are suffering  from a coal, famine, and, the price  of anthracite, has .increased $3.'5P  per ton. Many turbulent scenes  are being enacted.  An' Exchangt" from Illinois says:  "About 200 citizens' of Tuscola  confiscated ten carloads.of coal at  the Illinois Central yards yesterr  day, and it was distributed among  the sufferers who'are out of coal.  '  "There is not a pound'of coal in  any of the coal yards, and when  the people saw the loaded cars here  they determined to relieve the situation to some extent. Mayor  Roberts threw obstacles in the  way and the Board of Health-"-passed a resoluti 111 stating that-it was  for the preservation of the health  of the people.  "Business men and bankers and*  prominent citizens joined in the  raid, but the coal seized ��� was paid  for, a committee being, appointed  to collect .the money, and hold it for  the railroad company.". .

Saturday/ February 7TH, 1903.  It is to be deplored  that the in-  ��� dividual   miners of this camp���the  mostimpphtant in  the   Province���  do not take a greater interest irr the  proposed 'formation'  of the British  Columbia Miirirrg Association than  r    they seem to. do.    The  misfortune  is that they have got the  idea that  the  scheme, is  gotten  up by companies and 'large .operators for the  sole purpose of hampering the individual  or'poorer miner, and, in  consequence, sit  back and let "the  other   fellow"   have   all  the say.  This is far from'beirrg the case.    It  is the chief object of the * Association '''to improve . the .conditions  which now surround   the   mining  industry-.of   the   Province,   and to  further the interests of the miners,  mine-owners aud all  other, persons  whose  business   is   directly or indirectly affected  by the  prosperity  of the mining  industry  of British  Columbia."      Surely,   if it is the  wish of the* miners of this or any  - other camp to  have a voice  in tbe  deliberations   of  the   Association,  the* time, jls^how 'opportune for'the'-  miners of the country to get together and organize their own subsidiary' Associations'and appoint .their  own  delegates who will be in Victoria at the ''"Provincial convention  to be held on ��� the   25th  inst.   'Attention is called'.to the recommendation of the- Committee,  which appears in another column, and which  was adopted at the  last meeting of  the Association, held in the Board  of Trade roonis  in Victoria on the  16th u!to.    The recommendations  as therein seV forth cannot but be  appreciated   and. .-endorsed  by  all  who  desire  the  betterment of the  existing  mining legislation, while  they clearly show  that; the aim of  the Association   is   to'  uplift  and  strengthen   the   mining industry,  not   at   the   expense   of any one  branch,   but . to   the gain and advancement of all. interests and con-  ' ditions concerned.  Regarding the altering or amending the mining laws, there is no  doubt that there are a number of  matters calling for remedy.

The organization of this Associa-  at the begirrning of the year is'the  corumencetnerrt of an era of pro-  ���sperity for the miir'ng .industry of  the Province The plan of procedure is similar to that adopted in  organizing the California Miners'  Association in 1872, -which started  out with a membership of less than  10,000 and now has a membership  of over 150,000. As a result of  the efforts of the California:Miners,!  Association therehasbeen invested  in the industry $150,000,000, yielding an .annual profit of $15,000,00a  Mr. J. B.

" Speaking of the. election for the  Yukon Council, the Vancouver  *' World" says: "Remarkable  were the results of the elections in  the far north to the Yukon Council. Such opposite- men tap Rev.  John Pringle, the ' leather Pat' of  the Klondike, and Joseph Clarke,,  the greatest agitator th? north has-  ever known, were successful. The  latter was elected in the creeks district, heading the poll, while Clarke  had so. many plumpers that he,  easily led in District, No. 1  Clarke's election is all the more  noteworthy because of his "defeat  by former ��� Governor Ross in the  contest for the Dominion House of  Commons.1'   ,.  The World's correspondent at  Dawson says business men of that,  cit}r are"* much disgusted, that*  Clarke should represent them, especially as few of them voted for  hint, his success being due to over  200 plumpers, his mining friends  ���out on the creeks being determined  that he should win. ?  The East and the West,  Prosperous Finances.  The Dominion Fina-ice Department, in its statement for the six  months ending with December,  shows the revenue to have increased  $3i579.ooo over the same time last  year. The expenditure was over  two million less, so that there isa  betterment in finances over the  same time last year of $5,6*88,783.  It has been a' niallsr of misfortune for the frontier* that the residents of thickly settled districts become so intensely provincial and  self-righteous. They conceive  that all the virtues center' in  their uwn .communities and tliat  depravity leigns with a graded  and increasing ir.tensityi that is  tuejisured principally by its distance  from their licraon. They come to  believe that civilization, immunity  from danger and well-order<d conditions maintain principally within  th: circumscribed radius in which  they live.,. They dp not keep  abreast of ,lhe progress of newer  countries. Years after Texas became the most orderly State iir the  Union, the-New York and Massa-  ehusettes'' provincials believe:! it to  be a howling hell of disorder, arrd  after Oregorr became a great ��� commonwealth they still c'uwg to the  ideas absorbed irr childhood while  reading Thaiiatopsis iii their school  readers. It should not therefore be  a matter of surprise that Eastern  people, c.eir tliough in Congress,  should mow base their,conception  of Alaska upon the ideas brought  out by the debate upon the question of. buying the country _ from'  ��� Russia,���a-ud*the*latef abnormal conditions prevailing at the,time of  the Klondike.stampede. It would  be hard for these people to grasp  the plain fact that crime is less pre-'  valent iu Alaska than in Boston,  New York or Chicago.
