Ono oi' Most Successful' find Uni-  quo Fancy Dress Carnivals  Ever- Hold Hero.  Our anticipations" regard ing the  masked fancy dress carnival were  more than iealh.cd ; it was an immense success Ki 11 every 'meaning of  the word. The rink was most  tastefully decoiated. and the ice in  fine condition. The comfort of the  ladies' waiting room was fully appreciated by the large number of  ladies who were present to witness  the carnival.  The Judges, selected for the occasion, chosen from among the  spectators, were Rev. Mr. Turking-  ton, Dr. Cameron and Capt. Ha-  thcrn. Their task was an arduous  one, as so many of the costumes  were deserving?ot recognition that  it was no easy task to pick out the  "best." However, their decisions  gave general satisfaction, and the  prizes were awarded to : An Indian  Princess, represented by Mrs. J. A.  Eraser ;"Herr Sn'y'der'"arid.hisf.!R.ace  Horse, represented by lien. Nicholl;  Mother Choose, by Bertha Doclker,  and An Indian Chief, by Master A.  J. Baker.  Without exception the costumes  were very effective and tlie taste dis-  played is good evidence of the interest taken by the people of, Atlin.  The following is a partial list of the  characters represented :  Little Red Riding Hood, represented by Mrs. Stevenson ; a Wat-,  teau Shepherdess, Mrs. Rant; -a  Daughter of the Regiment, Mrs. E.  M. N. Woods and Miss Edwards;  Nurse, Mrs.'Dowling, Mrs. Olive;  Canada, Mrs. Ward ; College Girl,  Miss Miller; a Maid of All Work,  Mrs. Heiining'. Alphonse arid Gaston, F. .L. Stevenson and V. Trot-  man; Ben Hur, N. Wheeling ;  Topsy. B. Harmon ; George Washington, Wilfred Ware ; Jack Tar,  3. G. Lawrence; South African  Contingent, W. Taylor and Walter  Bla-'kclt ; Father Woods, E. M. N.  ���Woods; The Girl from Ireland,  H. E. Sym'ons; John" Bull, W. W.  Grime; Barrister, C. R. Bourne;  Esquimau, J. A. Fraser. Flower  Girl, Elhcl Pillman ; Fairy, Josie  Doclker ; Brownie, Erma Blackett;  Shoe Black, Bernicc Blackett ; Brigand, Horace Fraser.  Ther��i were a very large number  of spectators, both from Discovery  and Atlin and tlie evening's fun  seemed   to  b; : hcroughly enjoyed  by all.  Tiro 111 magement of the rink intend giving another carnival about  the middle of next month, when  more prizes will...be given and the  characters besl sustained will be acknowledged iu the prize list.  Mr. I-I. Wheeler, Assistant Superintendent ol the B. Y. N. Co.V  winter service, was in Atlin thi;-  week on a tour of .inspection in  connection with ihe Atlin mail  service. . ���   ���  Iu an interview with Mr. Wheeler, he stated that the Company deplored the recent irregularities in  the mail.service, and that his trip  at this time was for the purpose of  ascertaining the cause and adopting  a remedy.    The Mail  Contractors,  he said, had given the Chief Carriei  "carte blanche" to employ extra  men, sleds and dogs in order that  the mail should arrive and .depart  011 time. There was never a question of economy on the Company's  part, with the cud in view that the  public should have no cause of  complaint. Before Mr. Wheeler  left he made certain changes in the  service by which he anticipates  things will go oil all right until the  end of the season.  , tie denies the report that his  company intend freighting to Atlin..

The'flume boxes and pipes are all  laid in position to be readily set up  as soon as the snow flies, thus as-  suring the early installation of the ���  plant and the commencement of  'active hydraulic operations as soon  as the weather will permit.

Thing's for This Year.
Saturday, Januaky iyrn, 1903.'
Arr.rx, as part of the Dominion
Electoral District of Burrard, is
about lo have a bye-election, when
it is expected the electors throughout the Atlin, Pcnnetl and Chilhal
sections will come out in force a-id
exercise their franchises.
According to the Proclamation,
issued by Returning Officer C. I-I.
Moualouthc 2nd iust, the dale of
nomination is set for" the 20th iust
and the date of election for Wednesday, February atli.
As far as is known at the present
date there are three candidates in
the Held, these are'R.O. Mac-
Pherson, liberal, Chris. Foley,
Tndependcnl Labor, and ex-Governor Mclnnes, Tudcpcudent, but
whether or not all three will receive a'nomination is, of course, a
matter of doubt in view of existing
Mr. R. C MacPhcrson, the Liberal nominee, aud President of the
Vancouver Liberal Association,
seeks to address tlie Electors of
this district through our columns.
His letter is a straight business
proposition, which we unqualifiedly
take pleasure in' endorsing. The
strongest argument in favour of
Mr. Macphcrson's return is the
fact that the Conservatives of the
constituency deemed his election
so certain that they preferred not
to put an opponent iu the field. As
to the two other prospective candidates, McTnncs and Foley, they,
will be lucky if  they save their de
Mr. MiicPhei'son is a man of
undoubted energy, and one who
has the interest and welfare of the
constituency at heart. He is a friend
His endorsement of the Liberal
platform in its entirety, makes of
him a supporter of the present administration and is assuranceenough
that the constituency will have a
voice and a vole in its best interests
in the House.'
A word to the Electors : — Although the last census gives this
district a population of nearly 3500,
the list of voters comprises only
374 names, and of this number
fully 120 are out of the country.
It therefore becomes an almost imperative duly for' every man in the
district to exercise his right at the
polls on Wednesday, 4II1 February.
Every voter has a stake iu the
country, and to exercise his franchise is a duty he owes to himself,
his fellow man and to this great
country, to say nothing about the
district itself. According to the
number of votes polled here the influence and standing of the district
is judged. Let it therefore be ,
with the object "for the gcod of
the Atlin District." that every man
CQin.es to the poll on Election-day.

The scheme of introducing the'

measures will be introduced whereby this system or a better will be

' This is a'matter for Ihe Inline  deliberation of your Hoard. Thro'  its inteiveuiion the imposition of  , double postage on Parcels' post  was immediately removed by the  Postmaster-General.  On the retirement of Mr. J. A.  Eraser from the position of Postmaster for this district, the Hoard  took steps' to suggest to the proper  authorities the appointment of Air..  John Williams to the vacancy.  From "the uriive'rsa'l satisfaelion  given by Mr: Williams I think we  have no cause to regret the step.  Customs-���The matter of Customs  on different kinds of mining, machinery, not mauufactuied in the  Dominion of Canada, but imported  from Ihe Stales and ��� elsewhere has  received the careful consideration  of the Board. The Minister of  Customs, Ottawa, has been approached by this and sister Boards  throughout the Province with tlie  object of having this duty curtailed  if not removed altogether.  A "Teat ileal of inconvenience  . has been caused to the merchants  and residents of the district by the  manner in which the Customs official at Caribou has been accustomed to send in his statement of dues  lo importers. Taking no notice of  requests to change his methods,  Mr. Busby has been communicated  with on the subject and no doubt  the matter will at once be'set right:  Advertising ��� The mailer of advertising this district and its resources on the outside is becoming  more and more important as development increases. Your Hoard  has and still continues to recognise  the fact, and is endeavoiing by  various methods to keep the district well lo the fore in mining and  other circles. In rcfening lo these  method's of dissemination of our  news our local paper, Tun An.in  Claim, has always held a prominent position, and its Managing  Editor is at present endeavoring  to have circulated more widely the  vast possibilities of the camp. Last  winter a system of Telegraphic  .Bulletins was established at the ex  pense o.'lhe Board, which ��vas productive of a great rlc.il. o' good.

Wc aic therefore assume! that tnt  dislrict i.-. being well pushed to the  front throughout the continent and  elsewhere. t  One .great dai.gei which we have  seen and discountenanced,, is the  utterance of spurious lepoits and  unreliable -iufoimaiion. What we  have to offer to the public is sufficiently genuine will.out being embellished by falsehood. Such reports as'the-.e must inevitably luuiu  any camp when .sifted out.  Fire Protection���The custody ot  the Fire Department is vested in  your Council, who has given its  best attention to the safe-guarding  of the town from tire. The rescinding of ths graiit of tbe Government, of Sro per mouth, towards  the niaintenance'ol a night-watchman was, in the mind of the Fire  Coininiltee, most ill advised, and  has Jell the town without that most  necessary officer. I would strongly  advise that you continue to urge  upon tlie Government the necessity  of appointing' a night-watchman.  This is the city 's right and should  be insisted ou.  Yet} great credit is d-ie to Imi'c  Chief Kirklaud an-cl his colleague,  Mr. Rosselli, for the great interest  they have sliuwn and taken in fire  protection mailers, and also to  those who have always been ready  and'willing to luud assistance when  needed.
