British Columbia's Quota to-  the Mineral Production  .Saturday,  Fun., .S,   ryos  Jumpers���Beware I  Sinck the inception of this mining camp there has been a continual complaint regarding the' insecurity of titles to mining property.  Unfortunately the complaint is  only too well founderl as the Government has persisted irr issuing  records over and over again for the  same ground. There has been  some measure of relief granted in  lhe Amended Placer Act irr so far'  that air affidavit is now required  with each'application for a record.  The indications at preserrt, regarding the movement irr mining  properly for the coming summer,  .are good aud .the Board of Trade,  recognizing this fact arrd also recognizing that in the past capital has  been driven away from the District  owing to the indiscriminate jumping of property, have decided to do  all in their 'power to enforce  the law. The Board i.s of the.  opinion that'if Jan example is made  in one or two cases it will have a  salutary effect and it is the intention to euforce'the provisions of the  mining laws with a special reference to the reprehensible habit of  jumping claims for purely " holdup " purposes. There have been  so many flagrant cases in the past  of promising sales or deaL having  been entirely wrecked through this  "dog in the manger" haHt that  the Board coirsiders the time has  come to make a wholesome example-  of the perpetrators of such outrages,  for outrages they are.  It is within the knowledge of  several members of the Board that  a repetition of these offences is contemplated during the -ensuing season and without wishing to interfere irr any way with the special  course of treatment which our Provincial Government, in its paternal  solicitude for this revenue producing  camp, has shown or imposed upon  us, the Board have decided to prosecute any flagrant case of jumping  that may be brought to their notice.  For the'information- of would-be  jumpers -������- "thieves'' would be  more appropriate���it might be well  to mention that the Amended Act  of'oi has a penalty clause, Sec.  144, which provides for the salutary  treatment of such miscreants by a  fine of not exceeding '$250, or three  months, and as the Board of Trade  lias, money to prosecute and the  Police have a big stock of wood on  hand, lake warning; and don't play  with fire, else you may get burned.  The above penalty is provided  ���*by the Placer Act,'-but it- must. be.  remembered'that the Criminal Code  also provides'due, and a severe one,  ibr FKRJUKY.

Anticipating the ann-ual Official  Report .from the Minister of Mines,  which is rrot liable to be published  till after the Provincial House  meets, "Mr. \V. F, Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist,   has   prepared  a summaryof the mining progress i WpJte tov prices, circulars anc^ cataloguos, or call on  during the past year and   the   following letter  accxmipanies  the  report: ...  Sir:--I have the honour to submit to you the - following as an appropriate' estimate of the mineral  production-for. thc year 1901.;-���"  This estimate is based upon the  actual returns of a. number of the  mines, and for- those -mines'.from  which returns have not yet been received the estimate ,-is based upon  their -approximate .known ���' tonnage  for-the*past year, together with the  assays from the same mines.for the  previous year. ���"'-    -.-,"���  !

Roughly speaking, the increase  made in 1901 .over 1900 is 25 per  cent-on gross value of output of the  Province. - This will be a very  agreeable surprise tu many as. the  circulation of reports giving a contrary impression ��� has caused a very  despondent view to be taken of the  progress of the mining industry  during 1901, which does not seem  to be warranted by the facts.  There is an appreciable drop in  the placer gold production, owing  to the sudden melting of the snow  last spring, -causing- freshets arrd  leaving, a shortage of water durinrj  the latter part of the season.  The tonnage of. ore mined from  the lode mines in the past year is  about 87.1,832 tons, equal to a 11 increase of 317,036 over the year  igoo,/a. little more than 57 per  cent. ." - ,      -    There has been an kcrease in  the output of all the metals with  the exception of lead, the low price  obtainable in this Provincefor lead  ores having discouraged this class  of- mining,, except where accompanied with good silver values.  The gross value of the* copper  output has increased 206 per cent  over 1900; while lode gold has increased 36 per cent and silver 14  per cent. ....-������  The following attached forms  show  the  estimated  production of  CAL.  .11!  ��  ' importer of Geiier^Merchandise  Miners    Supplies .  ," OTJTFITTING A:SPECIA LT Y  FIRST   STREET,    ATLIF,   B. _ C.  ���o*��-��*��o*o��0^o*o^o^c^.:'$o$o<>��C'-*-o*a^  THE    KOOTENAY   HOTEL.  $  George E.

Hall, who has formed a  syndicate to take' up the ' Lake  View mineral claim, l>et\veen Birch  and Boulder. Mr. Robertson is  here to thoroughly examine the  mine aird report upon, it. He has  kiirdly.firrrri.shed us with a few of  his observations since his arrival'  iir the dirtrict: "The Atlin-Mining  District is certainly well mineralized for lode, hydraulic arrd placer  work arrd shows high copper values  iir several parts of the district. The  contour of lhe encircling mountains  arrd the moraine between, on Pine  creek, towards Discovery, seems] to  indicate the existence of richer and  larger quantities of gold than have  yet beerr found in this section. To  demonstrate this will require elaborate exploitation at heavy expense.  " Atlin is unfortunate in being  victimized by a transportation,company that taxes it ruthlessly by  charging unconscionable freight  rates that are inequitable aud unjustifiably high; and this' more  than any other ten factors retards  the development ol the district.  The Canadian Government is to be  commended for making a strong effort to have this evil corrected, .but  has beerr unable to afford relief having rro jurisdiction iu Alaska,  Tlie matter is one which should  be taken up jointly by both Governments. The citizens of this district  have an equitable right of action  and should relax ho effort until  they obtain a tremendous reduction  in rates. Another urgent need of  Atlin is a sampling, smelting,  stamping and concentrating mill,  to facilitate the prospecting, and development of pay propositions and  place them beyond the experimental stage/-'-  FALSE REPORTS  Do Not Meet With Favor-  Disastrous Fire.

Co.'s  steamers will-also-be-reduced. This  will errable transportation companies  operating from B..C. ports to quote  through tariff rate, placing-Pawson  merchants upon a   fair competitive  basis with the  Northern   Commercial  Company:    Such   is  the condensed opinion of   men--prominent  in "-shipping affairs in this oity.  0:i Friday last the Alaska  Steamship Association held a meeting; in'Seattle to discuss the drafting of-a tariff for through-freight to  Dawson .'and other upper,, river  points, 1>uf- owing lo ��� -the- fact that  the management of: the-W. -P. road  ���'had'-'not yet announced --its.through  rate from Skagway to Dawson, nothing could then be done. As the  B. Y. N. fleet of river steamers is  controlled by the White' Pass direc-  torate,":the -railway company is enabled to fix* the rates on the river-  transportation. Mr.' Newell, the  Vice-President'and General Manager of the White Pass-road, at  present in the Kast, is expected on  the Coast in about two weeks, another meeting of 'he Association  will be called and a,, through tariff  drafted.  From such' information as can be  obtairred it is rrot thought there will  be a reduction in passenger rates  between B. C. points and Dawson  during the coming season: fares  will likelv remain the ''same.
