Poor di&trict in matter of  paternal assistance, but rich iu sold, we will  yet show that w e possess richess far in excess of the most optimist of our people.  The latest foe to enter the arena is the  little narrow -gauged, narrow-carriaged and  narrow-peopled road running from Skaguaj  to the Summit. Built by British money and  manned by a baud ofc pirates, they are extorting rates from our merchants that are  simply prohibitive. Seven Cents from Ska-  guay to Bennett is their charge, and at this  rate they don't care w hether they bring it  through or not. In a good many instances  they secured freight under misapprehension,  aud now that they have secured it are going  to store the same at the Summit until such  time as the remainder of their jerk-water  line is completed to Bennett. "        - ,)t  A Claim man called on three itkei'chauts on  Thursday and this is what they said!  , Mr.' Fraser. representative'of the'PttfsOns  Produce Co.: * We are paying within a fraction of 10 cents u pound for freight from  Vancouver to Atlin. This is more-than we  paid for bringing it in over the ice last ** inter. Our agent at Bennett informed us by  letter that 7 cents a 'pound" w as i the freight  charge from Skaguay vto Bennett. From  Bennett to Atlin it'is ->30 a .ton. "JA|)out ,400  tons-are storedjit the Summit and uTlikely  to remain there, since I understand the railroad company have taken off their teams  and horses and placed them, on the line of.  construction. ,  A. W. Shiels, representative of i.the B. A. Cr  Company in Atlin: Had a tetter*from- the  office at Bennett, and it said that both- the  Skaguay passess were shut down and that'  we would not get any freight until the rails  were laid into Bennett. -  J. HrRose, manager of the A. M.'A M. Co.!  I'm not paying any freight. My freight bills  call for 6 1-2 cents from Vancouver to Atliu  and I,was handed a bill of 10 cents. I'm going to enter suit for the' detention of goods  below. I have tons and tons of butter and  bacon On the way into Atlin from Vancouver and who is going to make good this  loss. The railroad company ha\o no  business to take goods if they cannot bring  them through.  Here is a matter for the coast board of  trades to look into.  hoiiHe have been in course of preparation  for two weeks and Mr. Ed. G. Garden has  them about completed. The new order of  things has uot disturbed our'equanimity in  the least for we expected this and made our  arrangements accordingly.

Both men claim the  ownership of the ground.  Following this E. W. Bates was accussed of  stealing $-1100 from Harry Wheelock. He was  committed for trial before Justice Irving.  The case was heard Tuesday evening; there  being no case made Out. Dismissed.  * A Pole named Leplnski threatened to shoot  a fellow countryman with an iinpronounc-  able name.

Mr. Pringla returned from Bennett  Saturday last where he spent a week's holiday as the guest of Mr 'Charleson, Superintendent of Dominion Telegraphs in the  Northwest. Asked whether he went to intercept the three nurses expected in some  time soon, he said no. "Took a craze to go  out, like the people bound for Cape Nome,"  he laughed out, "und was glad to be back iu  Atlin."  "While in Bennett I learned from Mr.  Charleson that a telegraph line would be  into Atlin by the end of August. The line  will come around tho upper end of the hike  and thus cost considerable less than the laying of a cable across from Taku. A survey  party under Mr. Boyer is at present out perfecting details."  Hydraulic Leases the Turning Pointy  '   r   In Atlln's Wild Career.  Rurtiors have .been iii circulation during  the. week, that, the government had granted  hydraulic lease*, but ou dutluiry it was found  out that .the matter wus in its initial stage  With the chances largely in faVOr the grant*  being made.

The Dominion Government has iu the past  and is to this day spending hundreds df thousands of dollars iu the endeavor to attract  immigrants to our shores. Immigration  Agents are at present stationed iu all the  European 'centres and no advantage has  been lost sight of in Inducing these w elcomo  people to' come to Canada. There is no  particle of a doubt that their efforts will be  greatly facilitated by a copy of the Alien law  being placed In their hands.  British Columbia, likew iie( has spent considerable money in.attracting strangers to  her shores, but this has all changed.  They have passed the stage of seeking immigrants l they are fishing for cables now.  ATLLN'S BASEBALL TEAM.

It  was  stated by   the   Attorney-General   at   the time >of its  passage "that these  representations  liad been so strong that the government had deckled to act upon them.  But wc can hardl3- accept this as a  correct .statement ol the facts.    The  real history of this 'mistaken  measure dates back to the general election of 1896 when Sir Wilfiid Lau-  rier   was  returned   to   power.'   At  tint election Joseph Mat tin was defeated in Winnipeg by Hugh John  Macuonaid.    Nothwitholaud'.ng his  defeat Mr.   Martin  expected a seat  in   the   Laurier  cabinet.

He tound out that the Dyea tramway-  hud broken down and the White Puss road  hud tuken their teams aud horses off und  pjaeed them on construction. The John Irving Navigation Company is doing all in  their power to bring freight through, but  since they cannot get it at the other end of  the line they are powerless in the matter.

Wom3n Sunning for Nuggets Where  Gold  Abounds.  July 1st - Dominion Day -is the great Cuiiu-  di iu o-ie, when Canadians meet to Icixurolj  toss the caber, try eouclusioiis at throwing-  a mountain ucross a given liiu-, or seeing  how close to heaven .they can go by their  high-standing jumps. The day marks the  unification of the British North American  provinces into one greut whole. It is the  Camxlian Fourth of July and tho day is  celebrated from Prince Edward Island on the  Atlantic to Dawson ou the Yukon.  Discovery, the town standing sentinel over  Pine creek, is not .sutislied with one day for  its progrum, und so is consolidating the  Canadian with the American one. Perhaps  they have just lieui'd of the proposed Anglo-  American alliance and putting into practice  n consummation devoutly to be w ished. The  program for to-duy, appearing in unother  coliimu. is one to do credit to moro pretention* sillagcs, and one event in particular,  the ladies' nugget nice, is no foreign importation, for it cannot bfe indulged iu outside  at c-juutries where they grow nuggets.  The work of the commission is progressing  most satisfactorily und the manner in which  Justice lr'.in^ has handled the cases und  rendered his decisions has inspired the confidence that ull disputes will be settled ou the  grounds of equity. Several iinportunt decisions have already been rendered. Discovery  ou Willow huh been refused. In cases where  claims were .staked along the bunk of the  creek according to Runt's instructions und  not according to the act His Lordship decided that they could only claim the ground  inside their stakes. '  HATUUDAY, JUNE 24." * ,  Scott,vs. McLaren���This ,will be the stun-'  dard case of the cluinib staked according to  N. W. T. laws.  I-. K. Scott located on 10th August, 189S, as  a creek claim, but Rant refused record. He  made several applications, but it w'asn't until the Zlst of January, 1899,'thut he succeeded  iu getting a record. " When he staked it there  wus one stake ou the upper side showing  that it was McLaren's Mo-foot claim. Scott  staked the upper pun of .this because Mc-  r.uren had two claims ut one ,time��� the discovery and.the one under dispute. There  was no otner stuke on tlie claim, except McLaren's. He located it in the daytime uud  w us helped by a man named Campbell.    '  Kenneth McLaren for the defence said he  was one of the original discoverers. He and  Miller staked 500 feet discovery, and then he  staked No. 1 above for himself���23U feet-  while Miller took the next one above, and  they got a record for l.UUU feet in ull. There  was some discrepancy ubout the duteof stak-  ing, but on cross-examination McLaren said  that they staked discovery ou the 2ath ot  July. They didn't relocate under B. C. laws  when Capt. Runt put up u notice to that  effect. The reason they staked under the N.  W. T. law s, wus because Capt. Strickland put  up-a notice that this district was in the  Territories.  Miller, McLaren's purtner in discovery,  gave corroborating evidence. _ *  Capt. Strickland gave evidence of having  issued the grunt'for u-l|0U0 feet claim to  these men, hecuuse he thought this was in  the N. W. T. He had no doubt they were the  discoverers.  Capt.
