Here wc* found Messrs.  Weii* ,r'.nl'rodd-I/e<_*s --whose Trie,.ds  hurl :i">! seen them in .,Allin for  . I'ln'r mo i;hs or in ire; and whom  ' tYuuo.i'- ir id finally buried-and laid  a.v.iy ���.i.id'-.'r te-i feat of snow���sitting out their noonday siesta "four  feet on the leader,'' with an air of  placid cjir.enLma'it, which one only  associate.-! with .the possession of  either a good conscience and poverty  or���bedrock. Mr. Frank Weir,'  the leading spirit of this organization, is one of tlie' pioneers of the  camp, and save, for a few mouths  passed in Victoria in the.winter ot  '9S, has resided here contihinnsly,  watching its development closely  iu the interests of the Company.  His two partners and himself are  - firm believers in the future of the  Pine, Spruce and McKee valleys as  dee > lead propositions. That this  belief is based on ascertained facts  rather, than on simple faith was  made fully apparent to us ere we  left their hospitable and well;ordered  camp.   ' - '. ��� ���  To   our i-rquiry  as lo what   "he  ~"C->m:>aiiy" had' done and projected  poi ig in  the 'develoj ment of their  property, Mr. Weir said :  "We have found it necessary to  anoit as our motto the soldier's  three 'P's' 'Patience, Precaution,  and Promptitude.' Up to the present we have b?en able to put iu  exercise only the first named of  these virtues, but we have been for  some time prepared to act with  promptness when "the moment arrived to enter upon active exploitation. The proximity of our ground  to the working, shallow placers on  the creek has forced us to make  haste slowly, otherwise we would  have seriously inconvenienced the  individual miner still working in  our vicinity. In order to secure  the ground we now have and which  we have had in view ever since the  first discovery of the camp we naturally deemed it in our interest to  get an early start in the race for  tiile, but having orrce obtained the  desired send-oiT, we have been  well cor.tent to ' rest on our oars '  and win out at our leisure.  In staking our      original  group of four Steveudyke leases wc  ran our north side lines so as to  skirl a.id exclude ihe'shallow bench  1  ground which, could easily be  worked by lire ordinary methods,  and which . would have been of  little use to us as a hydraulic company, save as' a dump in connection with our higher ground.  "T was impressed with the .situation and possible value of this  nroperty as a deep-lead proposition  during my first visit lo the camp in  August, '98; so much so,, indeed,  that, although I arrived early in  the excitement, spent the -rest of the'  season,iir camp and 'prepared a report.o\.the district for the Mining  Department at thc request of the  Provincial Mineralogist, I did rrot  become a Free Miner until I reached  Bennett on - my way back to the  coast. I maj* say that I have  staked but orrce in the Atliu district as an io--foot claim holder, and  that'claim, staked irr June '99. immediately after my return, now  forms the nucleus around which our  property.has grown and extended.  Some things are worth waiting for,  and my partners and myself have  felt from our first survey of '..he  ground that we could well afford to  exercise the patience necessary to  get oiir affairs to the 'point of actual  development; our prospect work  has proved to us that we have made  a lucky hit, and next seasorr's work  "will, we"hope, expose one br'more  leads of equal value to that already  uncovered. It seems- clear to" us  that the pay channels of the ' lower  Pine and Spruce valleys are the  wash of glacial streams, heading in  the south-east, but as 3*ou have  kindly asked me to prepare a few  notes on this general subject for the  Claim I will not elaborate on this  point at present.  "As regards development, the  pa^t seas 3U has been spent by us iir  prospectiirg our gr*.;uud, completing  preliminary work iu connection  with our waler ditch and adding to  our original leaseholds by purchase  aud otherwise such property as we  deemed necessary to put our proposition on a practical aud business  basis.  are now as follows': commencing in  the vicinity of Discovery claim on  Pine creek, we run nearly to the  Junction bridge, thence southerly  to No. 157 below on Spruce,-thence  easterly, following its north benches  to No 110, thence northerly in an irregular line to point of commencement  on .Pine, an area of about 500 acres.  :   BLAGKETT ��� &-CO.  .

In addition lo the bcrch ground enclosed within ihesre boundaries, wc  practically control a mile of the  creek-- bed' ol' Pine, fronting  dircetl/ 011 bur' properly. Our  water right is for 2000 inches to bs  diverted, from Pine creek at the  head of Gold 'kunj and conducted  by- a series of ditches and '.flumes to  a point orr the ground,-which will  give us an average head of 200 feet  un the bedrock of the lead found.  This lead is a continuation of the  high,level- or ' Lytle' channel, first  uncovered on the south or Steven-  dyke benches, opposite No. 30 below on Pine, and subsequently encountered in the tunnels run by Mr.  Lytle and others, about 1600 feet  up.stream, in the winter of '99 and  since. We consider this the main  glacial stream of the Pine side of  Pine-Spruce valley. It is intact on  our ground, .being first struck at a  depth of 12 feet, immediately adjoining" our camp, and gradually  deepening as it proceeds westwards.  Its average grade would, give it a  depth of between 50 and 60 feet at  the lower line ol" our property, where  a shaft has been sunk 44 feet without encountering it. We have  reason to believe from the indications at hand that this stream was  joined bv one or more similar  streams from the direction of Spruce  and Little Spruce, and this point  will be definitely ascertained by us  next seasou. Notwithstanding over  1000 feet of expensive drain ditching, we have been unable to uncover  more than a foot of the pay gravels,  so that the .balance of account is to  date considerably on the wrong side.  Our plans for the coming season,  when carried out, however, will expose a large area of bedrock which  lb the satisfaction of both companies,  and re-surveys.made on an- agree-  riie: t for a siigle ditch''.to -be constructed at joint' expense so far as  their lines coincided. A ditch, capable of carrying 500 inches,, was  thus excavated r for a mile and half  before the close of the season, and a  500 foot trestle,'40 feet in. height,  erected, spanning one of several  gullies crossed by the Iii.e.'->,   ,L  The Steveudyke . Hvdraulic Min-  ing Partnership >. is an example ol.  what a small number of level-headed miners caii do by earnest co-operation and .continued attention to  their joint interests. Unlike other  of the hydraulic companies in camp  it is an ordinary mining partnership organized under Part VI of tbe  Placer Act. Two full interests, the  ,01'ie represented by.. Frank Weir,  and the other by D. Todd Lees aud  W. M. Brook, constitute the" mem-,  bership.

Returning to- the question of  their water supply, Mr. Weir stated  that the three miles of ditches aiid  flumes, have been' laid out by  Messrs Brownlee & Lqwrj- of Atlin  ���and a mile and a half ot the right  ot'way cleared. Early iu the season, Messrs. Blunck and Griffith, of  the Sunrise Company, who had projected a line of ditch for a short distance ou the south side of the creek,  inadvertently invaded   the  right of  way belonging to the Slevendyk*  Co.- Considerable work was don.  on this line before the error was detected by the Company and recognised by the invaders. Once thw  point was conceded, however, the  difficulty was immediately adjusted  A meeting of the Council of the  Board of Trade was held at the  Bank of B.N.A. on Tuesday evening last. In connection with Fire .  protection, the following letter was  drafted and forwarded to the Provincial Secretary:  The Honourable  The Provincial Secretary,  Victoria, B. C.

In   the   first   place,  Gold   Run   is all  aud  more than it  has beerr given  credit for.    A year  ago   it   was  considered   a  "moose  pasture,".but today it   is  the  live-  , liest moose pasture in the Atlin district.     Work   is being   prosecuted  with   a. vim  that  is  a   surprise to  the natives,   work   thai   will  brine.  _more prestige to the camp "than any  work done iu   the   whole ' district  during the  past tvv*. years.    I venture   to make   the   assertion   thai  within   the ��� next   two   years Gold  Run  will   furnish  employment   to  as   many   men as the entire district  put together.

After examining the gravel on Nugget Point we  saw at once that the gravel consisted 01  granitic  rocks.    We then set  about to find, if possible, its source;  thii we found eight miles above the-  mouth of l-'urorise  lake,   where we  fou::d ih't  contact  between  granite  and talcose skies, which is identical  witli the gold-bearing -.dales of California.    It was  then a mere matter  of tracing   the   course of"   the golcl  o'faimel   at  the   present  mouth of  Surprise lake.
