 '��  .VOL.   S.  ATI.IN, li. C.', SATURDAY.  JANUARY    xo.    1003.  NO.   i��:  PERSISTENCE  WIN  Dominion Creek to   Give Up  Its Gold.  Indomltablo Prospoetors WorKiiif  With     Encouraging1   Result.':  ���   Hithorto Abandoned Crook.  I:i the early <I:iys of llic c:inip*s  history Dominion creek, will', its  tributaiy, Queen cieek, had its  tinny of prospectors, and :it that  time, May, 'yy, lnueli was'expected  of it. During the following miu:-  mer a little "prospect" woikwas  done���the gold wasn't found in the  grass roots���and  the neighborhood  ��� deserted, and so it remained.' Lr.te  in the fall of that year, Col. j. 15.  Creigiitou, a man with lots of energy, but 'no money, undertook :6  "break   the   bank'' by   hydraulic  .'methods, and' so well did he succeed that he was "sold out."  The property covered by Creigh-  fcon's leases ultimately fell into the  hands of two of the .best known  mining men in' the camp, -Messrs.  Lambert and Jackson,'and by them  Dominion ��� creek, or rather; the  mouth of it, is being systematically  prospected. 'Thcsc'-iuen original":}'  'intended to hydraulic the ground  but- owing to their neighbors', the  ���Columbia Hydraulic _, Company,  operations on Spruce -creek, active  wjrk of that nature lias been postponed.  It. is the intention of Messrs.  Lambert & Jackson to thoroughly  test the ground by a series of,shafts  and drifts, these latter to crosscut  the channel as soon as bedrock is  reached. The first shaft is now  sunk to a depth of 25 feet, and the  gravel which is thctc being obtained gives promise of very excellent  results. From an open cut, driven  parallel to the creek, coarse gold  was obtained, running iii value -as  high as Jifly cent pieces. Sluicing  of the dirt has been carried on without intermission since the commencement of the winter's operations.  Jack Lctberdale is associated  with Jackson & Lambert in'the enterprise and they have several men  at work with them. Tt is the firm'  belief of these practical iiiineis that  ere long they will be able to piove  their theory, viz., that the gold of  Spruce creek came down Doiuink 11  creek, 'mid that the gold found  above ��� Dominion on Spruce is another run entirely. Mr...Lambert's,  theorizing on mining matters has  invariably resulted 011 his coming  out on top, and unless the present  instance ��� proves an exception, the  pluck aiid energy of tliis combination will open out another .rich  area of ancient auriferous ground  to the benefit of'themselves unci the  welfare of the camp.

To tiit Council and Members of tl e  ���    Alibi District Hoard of Trade :  Gknti.emun : ��� In accordance  with the custom of such bodies as  this, I'lxrg herewith to snbuvt to  you. as President.of the Atlin District Board of Trade, my report  touching upon those nuuicis which  .have c in: before and been dealt  with by your Council and Lkard  during the past year. I will not go  into the miuutae of these ma-ters,  bill uii.reh in a '.���e:er;:l way give  you a resume of the ground covered by \0111 Boaid a-d Council since  our last Annual miclii g, and present to' you s ich facts as may en'  able yo'i' to fully appreciate the  position- of the' Poaid and the in-  flnaucc it iosscsscs and is enabled  to bring to bear where needed foi  fie welfare and .w ogress of oui  camp.  The promotion of the best inlet-  ests of tin* com n-i'iity ind district  is a\mI always has been the sole aim  of the Hoard, and although we  have not "always met with the success we have sought', \el I feel I  can congratulate you on 'your efforts during ���theya*t year.  Tlic Hoard of Trade held 11 regii-  l.-.jr meetings and three special  meetings', while the Council held  18 regular and two special meetings  duriug.tbc year.  Of the va.ious matters dealt with  b> \ our Board and Council I would  mention : ,    ' ���  1.. Freight and Transportation���  Mainly thioiigh the agitation and  unlirii g efforts of your Hoard and  Council, 'the' W.,P. & Y. Ky. is-  Vied a new "Tariff sheet, purporting a. reduction of the exorbitant  transportation charges into this  district over their system. . The  ���Board sought to bring pi'essurc to  bear" on the \V. P. & Y. Co.  -'.hiov.gV v'a:ic,us-...ch.'aine!s::in.-b.oth  the Provincial and Dominion  Houses, inasmuch as the greater  portion of their' svstem is operated  in Canadian territory, and also  thro'igh departments in the U. S.  Government, over that portion  which lies within supposed Alaskan  territory. '  We were led to believe that rates  would be considerably less than  those of previous years, but the  new tariff sheet has' by no means  fulfilled the expectations of the  Board. I would suggest'that your  Boatd still continue to agitate for  these much needed red act ions,  which will prove a benefit to the  camp and consequently by larger  i niorLations profitable to the \V.  P. Co.  2. The Appointment of a County  Court Judge ������ This matter has received much attention from your  body during the past year. Tire  Department of Justice- at Ottawa  seems in som: hesitation about  granlirg the request for a Resident  Judge'for the Atlin district, which  request has been continuously urged  upon it through the proper chan-  ��� els both by your Board and Coiiucil. The advent of Judge Henderson, the County Couif Judge for  the County of Vancouver, into this  district and the conclusions he arrived at lead u; to believe that His  Honour, Judge Henderson,������". like  ourselves, cannot gel away from  1 he fact that to conserve the best  interests of "the: district, mining,  mercantile and otherwise, a Resident Cvtinty Court Judge is an absolute necessity. .This matter is  Continued- on Page 4.     . .

Saturday, Jaxi;ahv ioth, 1903.  The paramount need of the Atlin  district is cash capital: We have  here the natural wealth and the  men to push enterprise. But the  first necessity lo all cnleipiise is  cash capital'. Atlin has the gold���  in placer and quart/.. This district will, iu years to come, b'e the  scene of some of the greatest and  most profitable mining operations  in the world. The gold is here in  its various virgin conditions. Vast  quantities of the yellow metal impregnate the soil and rocks of  creeks and mountains tributary to  the Atlin basin. The immediate  need is for more men with money  ��� to construct and operate the  plants necessary for wresting the  hidden' wealth with which Nature  has so lavishly endowed our district. We would urge upon all  our citizens the importance of one  great - united effort to attract the  capital of this and other countries  to this most promising section' of  British Columbia. The time is  passing, and not enough is being  clone to advertise our great and  permanent resources and but little  " missionary " work is being carried on. Practically the only news  the outside world gets concerning  the natural wealth of this region is  disseminated by the Claim and by  the few visitors who come ^ here  during the summer months and go  away to tell of what they have  seen or heard. Let every citizen  try to do something every week to  place himself and the district in  touch with capitalists in the east  and south. The necessity for the  introduction of new capital is only  too apparent, and the results which  have accrued to capital aheady invested is more than ample to prove  that the Atlin district posseses resources for exploitation by capital  unrivalled by any other section of  the great Northwest.

JULES E00ERT.& SON,-The Swiss Watchmakers.  ;.'the   koothnav -hotel t  :-t  An extraordinary gencial m  ing of the Dominion Alining Development and Agency Co. was  held in the River Plate House,  London, Pi. C, on Tuesday, 2nd  ulto, for,the purpose of consideiing  a scheme of rc-construciioni  Mr. R. Whicldon Harnett (the  Chairman of the Company") presided, staling, in the course of his  remarks, that1- the'' Atlin Lake Co.  had proved a disappointment, and  that as a result .of the postponement of the hopes of that company,  " we arc met here today to consider  a scheme of rc-coiistruclion. The  funds of the' company have been  spread over too wide an area, with  the result thai, promising as many  of these ttndertakings'are, the company has, in the American vernacular, 'bitten off a little more than it  can chew.' We .vaut, in future, if  we decide upon re-construction, a  little more concentration. We want  to take the best of our assets, and  some of them are very good indeed,  and concentrate our efforts upon  them until we get tangible results.  . . . Our third assel, and possibly by far the best of I hem all, is  our interest in the Atlin.Lake Co.  This company, with an- issued  capital of .��35,000, of which we  hold about one half, owns hydraulic leases on Birch and Otter creeks  and other mining rights at Atlin,  B. C., but work is at present concentrated on the 130 claims situate  en Birch creek. There should be  no question as to the value of the  property-. Everyone who goes  there says it is. a property that  would be seized at once by numerous people if it were possible to  seize it. One of our late directors  has been to see il on two occasions.  There is no doubt the gold is there,  and if you can only get your washing apparatus properly to work you  can secure it. ^"400 worth of gold  was obtained in a few days' hyd-  raulicing at the cud of season ioor.  In the opinion of the.manager and  .foreman, now on the spol,you axe  really now on the eve of very good  results.- I am bound to say that I  think the reasons given by the local  people for the postponement of  their hopes are reasons which commend themselves lo business men.  They arrived at the end of 1901, at  a point where gold .could be obtained���in fact, was obtained���and  if it had not been-for the .quicksands there would have been a very  profitable season last year. The  main object of this re-construction  is to finance the, Atlin Lake Co.  You will have to advance money to  that company until they can make  a little additional length of flume  and gel gold results. If,.our iulor-  mation is correct, those .results will  enable the Atlin Co. to pay off its  debentures and put this company  in funds."  Gcoi-ge E. Hayes, Proprietor'  Com.

"'  TOAIDDEVELOPMENT  A Scheme Worthy of Emul-  aiion.  .  Dawson Business Rlen ; ulp Thorn-  solves'and Their Country By  Assisting' tin: Miliars.  According to recent advice received,from Dawson, the business  men of thai country are so enihiicd  with the f]uart7. developments of  the Yukon that they have proceeded to put jnto operation a scheme  lor the assistance of the miners to  ' endeavour to prove and assist in  the opening up of, litis valuable  prospective asset of their district.  During the past fifteen months  upward of .poo quartz claims have  "'been located and recorded, and  many of these renewed either by  the requisite-certificate of reprosen  talioi! work or by. the payment of  hard cash.  As the miners, placer and quartz,  constitute the backbone of Dawson,  as they do of all mining camps,  her business men have been quick  to see that all'possible assistance  must be exiended to thc-in.  With,this end in vieiv, Mr. G. E.  Ames is now engagedin organizing  from the ranks ol business in Dawson a company -for the purpose of  purchasing ' and operating a diamond'core drill which will be used  in prospecting ' quartz properties.  The object is to assist ihe prospector and iii addition to his being  supplied with a drill to lest his  claim, the Government of the Yukon will he asked to pay for such  prospecting a bonus, possibly $r  per foot.  The company being fonuedwas  started about the middle of last  month, and on ;the 2isl ulto, over  S3000 of the 55000 capital had  been raised. When the t .-tal  amount has been subscribed it is  proposed' to organize a company  and select a board of trustees which  will have the management of the  drill and the allotment of its work.  The cost of prospecting with a  diamond drill is only about one-  seventh that of the ordinary method, and by its use only a few days  are required to ascertain the value  of property where the usual method  might take two or three seasons.  The business men of Dawson are  highly elated over the opportunity  thus given them of being able to  help themselves through the  miners, for the prosperity oT the  latter means the prosperity of  every department of business in  the district.  As but little can'he obtained in  , the way of encouragement from  the ���Government of Uritish Columbia towards fostering ibis or any  other mining district of the Province, the example set by our  neighbors   in   the   North  is  well  worthv of emulation.   Repeated rc-  - ���   ������ '   .  quests have been -made '.o vu-toiia  by tin; Hoard ol Ti.-ule lora'dia-  motid drill, but each' request wa>.  negatived ft    ;s-   oviilenily    the  policy ol' 0111 lei;i.-l;iti\e father's  to make us sho.v up the 1 iciies of  our part of the Province's ���indtis-  liies by 1 he   'sweat of our brow."  We have quai l/, prospects in this  ili.'-liicl which 'lo qi alilj , and  volume caiiuol be beaten, but our  working capital is scarce. The introduction of one or more drills  would help ns to prove the values  of our mineral wealth, and W2 will  do 'out share iu encouraging' a  similar scheme to lh:. t of our Daw-  sou friends.    ' <-   .  Dredging' vs. Hydraulidng.  Thai there are millions iu Cariboo .vet is as certain as anything  well can be, but it is a costly proceeding winiiMig the gold. The  newest 'proposal' is lo introduce  modern geld dredges. Mr. R. T.  Ward, Manager of the Wind Horsefly Go!cl Mining Co., has recently  returned from Oroville, California,  whither lie went to watch the work  of twenty-two dredges lliere. What  he saw has convinced him that il  his company's ground in Cariboo  prospects up to' the average of what  the mine has already produced, the  cheapest method and the most satisfactory will be to use dredges in  place of the., present hydraulic elevator. One dollar to the cubic  yard has been the yield so far, but  the expense has so eaten into the  profits that some other means  must' be adopted to save the gold,  lie finds that the California dredaes  are worked by electricity and the  cost is said to be only four cents to  the yard. That figure is lower  than even the biggest mines in  Cariboo worke.i at, "and ten times  cheaper than the smaller mi.:es can  handle the dirt. Last season Mr.  Ward took out of the ground $3000  a month, but thai paid little more  than expenses; if the dredges  work well a new era may open.up  lor Cariboo.  tj:. While 35 to 40 feet is the greatest depth dredges can usually be  worked.
