'i-eth'erstonhaugh,  Manager for the Atlin Mining Co.,  on Tuesday brought in the largest  poke of gold ever deposited iii Atliu. It represents the result of the  last clean-up after :i ten clays' run  on their McKee creek property.  The'sack was supposed to have  contained between 300 and 400  ounces, but the Manager declined  to give the exact'figures, stating  that the result must first go to the  Directors of the Company in London. The approximate value of  the gold is said to be slightly in  excess of $5000.  It would be much more satisfactory to us and to our readers it, the  Atlin Mining Co. would instruct  its Manager to favor us with what  information of this sort we desire,  and wehave no hesitancy ir. stating  that much more good would result-  from the immediate' publication in.  these columns of such welcome information than its publication elsewhere, and the welfare or the camp  would be thereby advanced.

D. flail, Sheriff of ihe  Count}'of Vancouver, that he was  pleased to appoint him as his Deputy for this section of the county.  The appointment dates from the  3rd inst.  The position of Sheriff is al best  no sinecure, but we feel assured  that Mr. Shirley's appointment will  meet with favor from all classes of  the community, and for zealous.attention to duty we know of no one  better qualified lo occupy the position than our esteemed citizen, Mr.  J. K. Shirley.  Summer Excursions.  We are advised by the Local  Agent of the W...F. & Y. Ry., that  a series of summer excursions on  the lake will shortly be inaugurated. For more beautiful or diversified scenery there is no place on  the continent which can rival Atlin lake. Last year these excursions were well patronized, especially by Atlin people, aud as they  will generally be held on Sundays,  we very strongly recommend the  miners on the creeks to avail themselves of these enjoyable outings.  The Blue Canyon section of  Spruce cieek has beeii a little too  difficult of access for our representative to make a personal visit, owing' principally to the limited leisure time "at his disposal, but to  the kindness of Mr. Letherdale we  are indebted for the following interesting information :  A scene of-astonishing   activity,  prevails in   the   Blue  Canyon   district on   Spruce  creek, and in spite  of,ihe lateness of the  snow   to disappear   from    this    high    altitude,  much good work  has .been accomplished.      There . are   nearly    100  men  alwpfk on claims adjacent to  the property- of the  Blue Canyon  Company.    Upon   the   claim's'immediately    below   this   ground   a  number  of   the   owners combined  aud they are   putting'  in   a   drain  ditch,   paralleling  the  creek,   and  have-now   gained- adYti* feet: . Pay.  has been   struck, so   from   now on  the dead  work  may- be -said'to be  finished.    It is contemplated thai a  depth of 14 feet  will have to be attained   to furnish  sufficient   drainage for the ground.  ���- The present bedrock as exposed  seems   to   be clay, and' upon   this  very rich pay is found,   as may be  readily imagined from one example,  On McNairns's claim,   for 5 hours'  shovelling, with three men 17 ozs.  6 dwts. were won last Saturday af-  noon. This' pay was taken off the  clay bedrock, under 6 inches of  water." On the Brown Bros, ground,  an overshot wheel has been erected,  which .works like a charm,-and at  14 feet it keeps the floor as dry as a  board. They were independent of  a drain and have allowed the others  a right of way-through their ground  fer 25 per cent of' the gold won  from the strip. -  This ground is situated on a long .  narrow swamp, with steep banks on  either side ; the flat does not exceed r.-io feet in width, and the  creek, which skirts the north bank,  is about 6 feet wide and averages  betwe.cn 12 and iS inches of depth.  The grade is very slight and for the  7 feet gained in depth in the drain  over quarter of a mile has had to  he dug. At the moment it is un- .  known whether or not the clay  forms the true bedrock or not, but  in the writer's opinion it would not ���  be at all .surprising if a similar condition of affairs was found lo exist  as was found ou the correspondin"  location of Otter creek���just over  the   divide,���where   the   clay was  Continued on p. 4.  alUtUetrminiVKiJf* ���yr-  ">-*��lw*****W-lb!'Afc-Ufl'i��3M.Ti  &����fZ^^'*llW"!tf��HUoAl  ifl.��tf.Tt-.ntt.'j�� ������.rptr-xtzi-Jn  ���,>'$VS,'y-**_*ra?,��t<.:Kl itf/jr;;^, ?cVT"^���rr77*T*fl*Ww���---t.-( ^  *xj i^efsxtmwD^s^^KssR ATLIN,  B.C..

It  is not  often tin I   our   attention is called to  errors of judgment  on the part of Ihe   Do-minion Government, but 'in   our   last issue we  quoted   an extract   from an Official  circular, dated, June, 171I;, in which  the  announcement   was   made that  the parcel postage  rate from,and to  any part of the   Dominion to Atlin  and the Yukon would   be   doubled,  and   in this ��� we consider   wc have  ground's for complaint. ���  "In refening lo the notice, we  stated that this order was "extraordinary and unprecedented," in-  as-much-as a discrimination is  made in the postal rates to and  from this 'northern country with  other parts of. the Dominion. We  have no hesitation in denouncing  the policy as a gross injustice lo  the people of this portion of the  country, while it gives an advantage  to other countries, within the International Postal Union, as against  trading with Canadian merchants,  whom it] ought to be the policy of  the Government to support and encourage.  We would not have thought so  much 'about the increase in the  rates had the order been made to  apply (.luring the winter months,  say from the closing till the opening of navigation, but as it stands,  wc consider it an inio uitous piece  of business. As the Parcels Post  is used by the greater majority of  the permanent residents of this district, ��� and as these are .already  ���heavily taxed, this double rate  seriously affects them.'  It is to be hdperl some steps will  be taken by local authorities to induce the Postmaster General to rescind his reccik order before any  haidship is wrought.  MINING DEAL.  Christopher    Makes,   an  1 ,,  'Agreement  ���or  the Transfer   of   His   McKee  t  Creek   Holdings  to the Atlin  Mining Company.  An important mining transaction  was- put on record last week whereby the Atliu   Mii:iug , Co., is likely  to become   the Vole  owners of McKee creek,   from   Llorado   lo   the  mouth   of  ihc   creek.     By   Agreement  of Sale   C.   Chrislopher'and  associates   transfers   to   the   Atliu  .Mining   Co., . the   Cily of London  dredging  lease, the   Pennant,  Blue  Peter,   Montreal,   Quebec, Vancouver, Victoria and Omega   hydraulic  creek aud bench lease claims.    The  consideration    is   ^'7500,   sterling,  payable in three.equal installments  of,.��2500 each, the first payment to-  be made November 1st, 1902.  The water record, granted Oct.  231-dlast, No. 56, and. the hydraulic plant now ou the grour.d is also  included in the agreemnt.

"Wi; have no desire to be inquisitive or to pry into other people's  business, but as we have the good  name and welfare of the camp at  heart we wish that other people  would show a similar disposition  and be good enough to let us hear  of the progress and result of their  work for the general information of  the community and the good of the  camp.

After the  settlement of ordinary  business   of   the   Board, Mr. J. A.  Fraser, who has faithfully occupied  the President's chair since  the inception of the  Board, tendered his  resignation, and stated that in view  of his recent appointment  as   Government Agent, he did not deem it  discreet to continue in  occupancy  of the   President's  chair.    The-resignation   was   accepted, aud   Mr.  Fraser was asked to  act as Chairman for the evening.    The office ol  Vice-President  was   also  declared  vacant through   the   resignation of  Mr. J. H. Gillard.'   Mr. A. S. Cross  and Mr. J. S. Munro, were  elected  to fill  the  offices  of President.and  Vice-President respectively.   Three  members   of    Council    were   also  elected, Messrs.  Grime, Regan and  Pillman.  Mr. Stables, M.L.A., iu a well  delivered speech, testiiied lo the efficacy ol the Board of Trade in the  past and said that if a similar unity  of feeling prevailed iu the future,  the Board would be enabled to accomplish much for the district.

COUNTY  COUR'  Legal Tangles Being "Slowly  Unravelled.  Very Littlo Interest Manifested.���  , Willow Creek Ditch Case Still  In Statu Quo".  ��� From the quiet prevailing around  the Court House' it is very evident  that the seeds of discord have  withered and died, as there hardly  seems to be salt far' less a lull meal  for tlie lawyers, or maybe it is the  benign influence of Judge Henderson dial has to do with the small-  ne.-js of the County Cotut docket.  His Honour, Judge Henderson  has been in Atliii for over a month  . and there have been practically  :io. new cases entered: A few of  those old stand-bys from ^last year  have come'up for final settlement,  but even the litigants in these do  not seem to want to press for immediate "settlement, as the ca*;e.s are  being adjourned ' froin time to time,-  011 one pretext and another.  The case of Barnes vs. Ruffner,  in which the- plaintiff sues for damages done by .defendant on a claim  on Pine creek. From the evidence  produced the plaintiff could not  substantiate his claim, and judgment was- in consequence given  against him with costs.  Li the" case of Harris vs. Felher-  stonhaugh, judgment was given lo  the defendant. This was in its way  rather a peculiar case and was one  iu which plaintiff seeks to have his  title confirmed as against that of  the defendant. C. Dubois Mason,  as solicitor for the defense, claimed  that the plaintiff should first prove  the validity of his own title before  questioning that of the defendant.  The evidence showed that the  claim was staked by Harris tinder a  power of attorney and that application'was made to record the claim���  which was called the " Intruder,"  ���together wilh the power of attorney at the same lime. These applications the Mining Recorder refused to accept on the grounds that  had the record of the previous owner run out, the claim would" have  fallen into the possession of the  owners of the bedrock flume.  Two suits, Plum be vs. the Atlin  Lake Mining Co, entered ,in the  docket, were settled out of Court.  These were, an action for wages  and one for damages for wrongful  dismissal.  The Willow Creek ditch case has  occupied the attention of the Court  off aud 011 for the last three weeks.  It will iu all probability be argued,  pro and con, before Judge Henderson next week. The Judge has  familiarized himself with all the  details and has spent considerable  time on the ground to satisfy,him--  self as to the different interests involved.

BLUE CANYON.  of     Fancy  prices, -at  Continued from p. 1.  sttipped of its treasure,-and the  ground abandoned.. Subsequent  developments showed that the clay  was but a false l>edrock, while underneath this was found ,a pay  streak, 6 feet thick, even richer  than that above. As a further argument^ it is a well known fact  that Spruce creek carries two distinct runs of gold.  Upon the Blue Canyon Co.'s property, development work, under  Mr. Letheruale's management, is  being pushed with a vim. Seven  men are al work. The bedrock  flume, has , beeu extended So feel,  considerable ground-sluicing on the  upper benches and three open cuts  run from the creek edge. The  prospects all over the ground are  satisfactory and highly encouraging.  The best pay is found adjacent to  the creek and it is surmised that the  creek bed will be found to be rich.  It is the intention of the company  to turn the creek into one of the  open cuts and wash out the channel.  Tbe company has a large area of  excellent ground, which 'will undoubtedly yteld substantial profits  for years to come.' This is a close  corporation, there are no sleeping-  partners and no high-salaried officials to support. We commend  the company for its enterprise and  sincerely ' hope unqualified success  will crown its efforts.  We are glad to learn, that the  wagon road is being built from the  Columbia Hydraulic Co. to. the  Blue Canyon, a distance of nearly  live miles, which will, -when completed, be of inestimable value to  the miners of this latter section.  Hitherto, everything has had to  be packed, either by mule or by  man ��� a tedious and expensive  means of transportation iu any  event.  Mr. Letherdale is confident, apart  from his personal interest, that this  portion of .Spruce creek -will in time  prove to be one of the richest in the  district--" a veritable 'Klondike,'  as he says���and for a dredging  ground is unexcelled.
