Jack Gorman (lhe 'Little Willie'  of Boulder) was out hunting mountain goats last week. ��� They are not  in season and Jack did rrot get any  although he'saw plenty of thcin.  McCulloclr, Auld & Co., working  at the mouth of Golcl Run, have,  since the rst of January, hoisted up  2,000 buckels of .'pay dirt." Their  prospecting assures them of good  values. '' Last week they put in  eight sets to' four men.  The,ladies of Discovery held air  electiorr of, their bwrr last Saturday.  The polling booth was at the resi-'  derrce of Mrs. Paul Eggert. When  the ballot box was opened and the  votes counted it was found that Dr.  Young had a handsome majority.  Here's to the ladies,  God bless 'em!  A meeting of-those interested irr  completing - arrangements for a St.  Patrick's concert will be held in the  dining rooms of the - Vancouver  hotel, on - Monday ��� evening- at S,  o'clock. A cordial invitation is extended. The proceeds, of the concert will be given over to the hospital  fund.  "Dad" Davies,- who arrived in  town a short time ago- from the  Tenakee Springs, is looking hale  and hearty. He says the- other  Atlinites at the Springs were enjoying splendid health. George Brown  aird JeiT Rich are putting oir flesh  and walking around like two-year  olds.  Alex.. Smith, of the Kirkland,  has irr his house a specimen of an  Irish. Creeper, a most delicate and  beautiful climbing plant, in full  bloom. The ' little flower, with its  soft,' clinging tendrils and pretty  pink bloom, afforded a striking contrast to the temperature outside, the  thermometer showing 40 below.  The individual who visited Gold  Run last week, with th***: expressed  intention of buying the place if he  liked it and installing* thereon at  least nirrc steam plant-?, turns out to  be 110 bloated capitalist but the  'court musician' aud retainer of  Captain John Irving. Possibly, he  was endeavoring to gain cheap  votes for the Captain.   ���'  A. J. Morley. was elected mayor  of Victoria over T. W. Patterson by  a majority of 313 voles. There  were 3,313 votes polled. Mr. Patterson is somewhat out of luck.  He ran 011 the liberal ticket for* The  Islands and was.defeated by Mr. A.  Iv. McPhillips.  The Skagway Alaskan, of Jan.  2S, says:���George Martin was found  insane by a jury of twelve men, before Judge Le Fevre, last Saturday.  He is the man who has been rcferr-  *ed to as "Jack, the Hugger." For  several days past he has endeavoring'to enfold the fair ladies of Skagway to his bosom. The physicians  testified that he is a nervous wreck  and a (it subject for a hospital lor  the insane. Martin worked in thc  Atlin camp, ou Pine creek. Pie  very nearly lost his life at the same  time that Jack Walters was killed,  the summer of 1906, by the bank of  gravel falling. This may be thc  cause of Martin's derangement..  Letter of Thanks.  To the Editor:,  Sir.--On the eve of my departure  for Victoria, f lake this opportunity  of thanking my supporters and  those who worked for rrre in Lire .recent election, returning me for a  second lime as representative of the  Atlin distiict. Now lire contest is  over I wish to assure my opponents  that I feel I am, iir every sense of  the word, the representative of my  supporters arrd of my opponents  aird of the district irr general. Let  us all pull together for .the common   good.  Yours very truly,  IT. TC. Young.  Worthy of Perusal.  If there is a chance to boom business, boom it. Don't be a knocker.  Don't, pull a long face and get sour-  on your stomach.. Hope, a bit.  Get a smile on you.,. Hold up your  head. . Get a hold,with both bauds.  Then pull. Bury your hatchet.  Drop your tomahawk. Hide your  little hammei. When a stranger  drops irr tell him this is the. greatest  place on earth. It is. Don't get  mulish. . Don't .roast. Be jolly.  Get   "popular. it's   dead    easy.  ���Help yourself along. Push your  friend witlr you. - Soon you'll have  a whole procession. Be a good fellow.  No man ever helped himself by-  knocking other people dowrr. No  man ever got rich trying to make  other people believe that he was the  only good man on earth. You cannot climb the ladder of fame by  stepping- on other people's corrrs.  They're their corns, not yours; and  they are terrder.   Keep of the corrrs.  All men are rrot alike. Once in  a while you may find orre who is  very much alike. But some are  different. You're not the only shirt  irr the wash. If you don't like their  style, let 'em alone. Don't knock.  You'll get used to it. There's no  end of fun in minding your own  business. Arrd it makes the other  people like you better. Better have  others stuck on you than get stuck  orr yourself. Nobody gets stock on  a knocker. Don't be one. Be  good.  "Bob" Jamieson received a letter  last mail from Frank Braekett, who  is living in Rhyolile, New Rhyo-  lite is in the Bullfrog district aird is  described as "the two-year-old wonder of the .mining, world." Frank  has taken right hold of the game  and is exploiting a property, with  big chances of making it a success.  The bunch in Allin who were his  tilicums are not very strong on the  prayersystem, but if good wishes  go for anything Frank will make a  "stake" iu a very short time. He.  sent his regards to the boys���and.  his love to all the ladies.  Lowney's Fresh Choc'cTiJl.-'vfV'^r.oo.---  per lb.( at C. R. Bourne'.-*.  ^^^rW^r^^M^i^^^M'm^^^^ ifcN..

Some time ago Aire G.'P.P. made  overtures   to British Columbia'gov-  . eminent, .'.promising,'   if   their   demands were met  with,  to start construction from   the .western terminus ���immediately,    The government,  the McBride administration,' 'turned  'down'  their   offer.      The   railway  company   thereupon    delayed    the  commencement of the construction.  Their'next   move   was to  Ottawa,  trying their schemes oir the powers-,  that-be  there,   and,   when  all  else  failed, they   tried   to get their tools  and  puppets  elected   to the British  Columbia legislature, so that  when  measures  favorable  to  them   were  brought   up   in the House, all they  had   lo do   was  to pull thc strings  and the puppets   voted the way the  master mind designated..  This'scheme has been frustrated  by the vote of the people, showing  the absolute confidence an overwhelming majority of the voters  have in the cleatr and able administration of Premier McBride aird his  colleagues.  ���Another incident,  and a very important one at   that, was the. manly i  It appears "that persons Who have  taken   but ������"intentional papers':*: to  become naturalized  subjects in the  United  States   of  America,' sign a  document   to   the  effect lhat they:  will not  serve   under  thef King, of  England.      If this- is. the case'it is  only natural to doubt whether these  same people retain . their suffrage in  British colonies.    That"'it should be  possible   for  men   who are under a  solemn   pledge   not   to serve their  king,-and still   retain  the privilege  of voting for the representative government irr   British territories, is indeed a mockery   of justice and loyalty   to  the  constitution of thef empire. ."   This is a matter  of importance to all loyal citizens, and should  not     be     set    lightly   aside;   for,  although   irr   these  days  the  franchise  is  extended  to all sorts arrd  conditions    of   men,   who  rightly  claim   nationality���surely   the line  should be   legally   drawrr   against  those who cannot be classed as true  arrd loyal subjects of the crown.  :,VVvi,#S  .The^fBar.is sir pplied;/withf; hone'but   they/best; bnrrrds of yl/iquors y  y- *"-���:- arrd "Cigars/'rF  DIXON    &   SCHULZ,   Proprietors.   /  Corner Pearl and First Streets, Atlin, B.-C.

It might be added that  the World is a paper ul' truth and  veracity, at least, so it claims.  Special to The World, from Atliu:  ��� "Al ti largely attended meeting of  the Allin district liberal association,  held on - Wednesday, Jan. rC, at  Discovery,-Captain John Irving, of  Victoria, one of thc pioneers of the  Atlin camp, received the unanimous  nomination as lire party,candidate  iir the Ibrlhc'oiniug provincial election.    Captain Irving reached Atlirr  ��� Friday evening, ,after 'a rough trip  Irom Victoria, and was warmly and  ��� heartily welcomed by the local liberals. At the official nomination  he was endorsed by John Kirkland  and W. Bray Couroy. The campaign will be vigorously conducted  by lhe liberal nominee aud his supporters. The local liberals are  solid aird united on their choice,  and the electiorr of Captain Irving-  is conceded. Tbe only question in  doubt is the size of his majority."  The local 'hot-air' peddler who serrt  such 'guff' out must have been 'hit-  ling the pipe' or have annexed himself to a bottle of 'hootch.-' It surely shows signs of a deranged mind.  That sort of chap should be writing  'penny awfuls,' the kind of literature that requires a lurid imagination and no conscience.  The young tourist from Loudon  was trying to have some fun at  Pat's expense. "Pat,'' said he,  "what is the meaning of the word  nothing?" "Sure, I can't explairr  it, sor, but ye'll find it in the place  where your brains ought to be."  A clergyman twice refused to  marry a couple - who came before  him, because, on both occasiorrs the'  bridegroom was intoxicated. The  clergyman said to the bride: "I  cannot understand why you come  to church with a man who is to be  vour husband in a state like this."  The young woman burst into tears,  and said: "I cannot help it, sir, he  won't come when he's sober."  The gravedigger of a little town  in .Scotland was induced to give up  his habit of hard drinking arrd sign  the pledge. At a public meeting  he gave his "experience." " I  never thocht to tell ye," he said,,  "that for a whole month I have na'  touched a drap o' onything. I've  saved enough to buy me a braw  oak coffin wi' brass handles arrd  brass nails���arrd if I'm a teetotaler  for anither month' I'll be wantin'  it."  They were on their honeymoon.  -He had bought a boat and had  taken her out lo show her how well  he could handle it, putting her to  tend the sheet. A puff of wind  came, and he shouted in no uncertain tone, "T,et, go the sheet!"    No  Fresh   line  hand al. K. L.  ol staple groceries on  I'illman's.    ,  NOTICE.

(My John Irving���copyrighted.j '  Tuesday the stage left Atlin at r  ��� p.m. carrying out Captain John Irving, 11 firry Howard, A. Barrister  and Mrs. Callaghan as passengers.  John Roxborough was also aboard'  bound for Squaw Point road house.  George S. Cummings took a photo  of the party just as they drove on  to the ice'.  The Captain goes first to Whitehorse and then oir to Victoria. He  says he Iras been defeated but he is  not yet beaten, and lie will be in  agaitt to try conclusions. The next  , time he comes- before the political  footlights he will have for his 'star'  the dough ti' "Billy" Meltnicss,  who, like - the Captain, does rrot  know when he is beaten. He believes iu the old adage:���"It is rrot  the number of times you fall, but  the number of times you rise  again." .Such ��� perseverance arrd  courage is worthy the highest commendation.  "Billy," according to the gallant  Captaiir, will be the 'main squeeze,',  arrd will be backed by a very strong-  serio-comic   company  of   world-renowned   artists,   whose efforts, will  be sure to please as they will appeal  lo all  classes  iir   the camp.    They  will   play   about a two-weeks'   engagement,    touring   the   creeks in  their own  auto-caravans  somewhat  after   the   faslriorr of the  up-to-date  circus.    The  Captain,   after his experience with our local talenl, says  he will not   bring along* any   funny  men, clowns   or jesters,   as we have  in our mislst the very best the world  can   produce.     Of course this  last  statement   must   not   be   taken  too  seriously, the  Captain, no doubt, is  giving   us a "jolly."      Money   will  be  shipped   in   during- the summer  when   freight   rates   are   low,   and  notices sent to all the hotels to have  a full supply oir hand of all kinds of  'good   cheer,"  so   that   everybody  may   have  a  liue time.      Nothing  will be  done  in the way of making  tiresome   speeches in which rro   orre  takes   the   slightest interest*.     Give  the people plenty of amusement and  no   politics   and   you   will   capture  their votes.  As soon as the details of the glorious scheme are sent in we will publish them irr full so that orre arrd all  may prepare for a treat.  Le capitaine est mort--longue  vie an Capitaine.
