ASS A Y OFFICE  Gold Dn*l   \*-*,i\til, Pui('h.is.:d 01 Taken on Consignment.  IJnaiU A-��*i.i\ing at Reasonable Rales.  The Atlin district is by no means  losing its lecoul as a pioducei ol  big nuggets. On C-:aluida\ last the  laige'st ot the season, weighing 36  ox. 12 dwts. 14 grs. 01 pure gold,  \alued, at pj ictically S600, was  found on the Blue Cain on piopeilv  on, upper Spruce creek. It was  picked off bediock b\ Mi- Car.son,  one of the paituers in the pioperty,  while" he was shovelling 111, and  veiy naturally caused quite a sensation' iu the camp. The nugget was  'brought to Atlin on \\ edue*>da}  last'along wilh the balance ol the  clean-up���which, needless lo say,  was a good one% The * nugget is  flat, and is 5^ niches long by 2^.-  niches,wide, and averages 9-i6tlis  of an inch 111 thickness, both si e->  are rough and the gold has a rust)  appearance, which is_ so characteristic in the gold of Spruce creek, it  t-5 as pietty a piece of .the " rtal  ���stuff" as amoue would wish to see.  The pioperty trom which the  nugget was taken coiw->ts of 2^  miles of a bedrock flume grant  about toui miles above discovery on  v-*piuee. Sluicing was commenced  about two weeks ago, and il the  hr^t clean-up is indicate e of the  season's run the owneis are to be  co'igiatulated. Mi.* Woods, S.M.,  and Jackson & Lambert aie interested with the oiigiual locators in  the piopeily.' It was for ih s  giound thai Mr. Carbon and h.s  partners whipsawed some 12,000  feet of lumber during the winter  south of the base of Bald mountain.  The pioperty has always been looked upon asvi valuable onehoni the  way it pro-pected, but the season  for wale; was too short for 100-foot  claim owners, and, together with its  being so far awa>' from the payh.g  claims of the cieok, it has previously tecched hut scant attention. Bedrock is fui 11 \ shall, wand al present  there is abundance ol walei foi ail  lequiiements.  Mention has already been made  in lecent issues of the nuggets of 15  and 2.S'ounces found by Ronawie  P>ios. on McKee cieek. All these  nuggels may be seen by any one  desiring to do so at the Bank of B.  N." A., wheic Mi. Gillaid will always be pleased to show them.  Willow  creek   has turned out its  usual   quota of   nuggets this year  and a number, ranging from 5 to 15  have been won. j  Ot the  notable' nuggets found in |  pievious   seasons,    mention should  be made of "The Wesl," weighing-'  S3 <)���/.. 5 dwts. 15 gi-s, la-ken from  126 below ou Spruce, h- West an<��  Hafft-'iinen This *was the,(list likf  inn-get' from the district and was.  louncl on J uls -Sth, '09, ils intrinsic  \alue was about $ioc<>.

On ,Spruce the  m tier-, are getting the full advantage of a lively war between stoie-  keepers, aud we are informed that  Ogihie's floui i^ Iving delivered at  $3.75 a sack. Sluicing is expected  to be-started ou the ..Ste\endyke  Co.'s pioneity next week. A great  deal oi dead work has lxsendone by  Mr. Wen and his associates, iuclud-  about* 1000 leet of ditching, Soo ft."  of-fluming and tresthug,, together  'with a large storage tank capable of'  containing   10,000 gallons of- \\ ater,  which is so'airanged*"that it-can be  . * *  used as.a .'.' boomer"^1.or^a1, pressul e. ���  box.    An over-shot wheel has alio  been-placed in iiositioift*   The owners  "are  sanguine  of good 'result** *  from  the  season's  op:rations,' and  well do thes deserve-succ.^s.  Pine creek, around Discovery, is'  for the piesent in a kind of demobilized ' state, o.ving- to .the  change iu the water supply arrangements, but it is' confidently hoped  that matters will soon rigut themselves.   ,  The Repoit to the Minisler of  Mines gi\es the following0 abstract  from the leturns ot creeks of this  district showing the number of  ounces of gold on which rovaltv  was paid ou last season :  Pine    4,91s ounces.  Boulder    1 916     ,,  McKee  ,1,733     ,.  Spruce      1,699     ..  /Wright      1,068     ,,  .    Outer        122     ,.  Graham        19     ,,  Biich .*-.. 15  Total  11,490     ,,  This amount may be taken as a  lillle better than one quarter of the  gold actually won from the district,  as miners aie not over keen to pay  taxes on their hard earned gold if  they can manage to get out without  paying the ioyalt.%.  An excursion ��vill be held-tomorrow on the Scotia, lound Goat and  Coppei islands, leaving Atlin at 1  o'clock. All those who have taken  this trip before say that for beautiful scenery there is not an equal on !  the continent.

Saturday, Jui'.y 13th,   1901  11K  Ax  unfortunate  climax has this  week occuned on Pine creek whereby work   on   the ' benches   of that  creek have  been seriously retarded  by the closing down of the Sunrise  water  ditch.    It is not  for us to sit  in judgment "upon   any   party   or  parties or upon the officials ��� these  latter have no judicial  powers���in  connection   with  the  action taken,  but we cannot refrain  from expressing our   contempt   for   those who  may be responsible  for the present  * state of affairs.' It is said that had the  order, first made by the Gold  Commissioner,   ordering   the     Sunrise  ditch   to   remain   closed,  l>een en-  ���    forced, over 100   men   would have  been thrown out of employment, but  that     upon the representation of a  strong delegation of miners affected,  Mr. Graham modified this order allowing  water to be  taken fiom the  ditch, provided  it was not used under  pressure, pending a decision of  the court,  c      In this, as  in other matters pertaining   tor the Placer Mining Act  and the" Water Clauses Act,   much  is left to the  discretion of the Gold  Commissioner, in   that he  use his  judgment towards the  most  satisfactory and equitable way of meeting  the  requirements of individual  cases.    In  our   opinion   we would  have  considered  the greatest good  to the   greatest   number  and have  acted   accordingly,   taking chances  upon the proper judicial authorities  upholding us in open court.    Much  expense and   dead   work  has l^een  done by the   individual   miners  in  contemplation   of   drawing    water  from the Sunrise Co., both for sluicing and piping, and surely, if water  could  not be sold  b}- the company  it would only have been in common  fairness to have so advised the company or the individuals.    In which  case     other    arrangements   might  have   been   made   or the company  ���might have asked for and  obtained  special privileges.  If the companies which have expended large sums of money in the  camp and are anxious and willing  to do everything iu their power to  assist the individual Id get worked  out, are to be handicapped or shut  down to gratify the whim of a few  sore-heads; the prospect is a poor  one for the obtaining of much  needed capital, when there is apparently no protection to those  who are anxious to push the development of the camp.  It is devoutly to be hoped'that  amicable arrangements can be arrived at in tbe present trouble before material damage is done. Tbe  camp has had far too much of litigation and too little mining, and  the sooner the hatchet is buried the  sooner will that which legitimately  belongs to us be ours ���our grubstakes.

'  For Staple & Fancy Groceries  PROVISIONS,  Tchaccos and Confectionery,  Prompt A ttention to Brderst&~Give us a call.  1 Tin-: Annual leport of the Mini  ster of  Mines for  the   Province  of  British .Columbia Jiasjust been received.     The   ptogress  of  mining  durine last vear shows a most satis-  .    -     i  factory growth, the various branches  of the mining industry have in-  cieased' in pioducliou from 10 to  206 per cent over the previous year,  though placer' gold shows a decrease of 5 per cent. This, it is  staled, is due to the heavy'falling  off in this district.' In 1899 the  cream of the placer gold in this district was skimmed off from the  shallower -workings, leaving only  the deeper workings, which will,  generally speaking, require to ,be  worked by hydraulic methods.  The total mineral' output for the  year amounts to '$16,344,751, an  increase of almost $4,000,000 over  1899. Klsewhere extracts from the  Report will be found.  The concluding remarks of the  introduction to the Report are  worthy'* of reproduction -and the  moral may l>e applied as well to  Atlin as anywhere else in the Province:  CONCERNING   PROSPECTS.  While production must be the  ultimate measure of our success as  a mining community, yet but a  small portion of the energy of the  country is emplo\'ed in a class of  mining which is at the present time  productive. Every accessible- section of the Province 'is being "prospected " more or less thoroughly,  and man}* sections are being developed with good promises of success, while still others which are  known to\contain valuable mineral  must neeescarily lie dormant until  the growth of the country provides  sufficiently good transportation  facilities to enable them to be opened up.  Prospects are "promises," and  the degree of faith placed in their  fulfilment will be measured by the  manner iu which our mines���the  prospects, of a few years ago���are  now fulfilling the promises then  given. _  The statistics show what tlie.se  mines have, during the past year  (1900), paid  back  in principal and  interest to" the lenders of the money  l'or their development.  The total amount so returned  was, in 189S, 56,529,420; in 1899,  $6,75 -,604; and iu 1900 reached  the sum of $10,069,757; an increase  of 49 per cent over 1899, and 54 per  cent over T.S98. ,  Prospects may be said to borrow  money on promissory notes and,  unfortunately, many "promising  prospects" have failed to meet their  obligations, with the result that the  capitalist can only be induced to advance money by the expectation of  a high premium and a large rate of  interest on the loan.

percentage of the oiiginal loan is
available for the development of the

'doubled or trebled; but why should
it be saddled with a debt of $1,000,-

1 another proposition "is uot unlikely
to   be     paralelled   in the Horsefly
country of Cariboo.    According to
Provincial   Mineiologist Robeitson,
"it would   appear   that   Atliu has
two distinct 'runs'"of gold."    The
first seems   to be associated  with a
peculiar yellow  gravel.    The  gold
from this run appeals to be of higher value than   that of the later iun,
and  has a peculiar   reddish   tinge.
It would appear that this paitieular
run passed   over   Spruce cieek and
probably       through      Stevendyke
gulch, as well as over a considerable
portion of Pine creek, from Steven-
dyke up   nearly  to  Surprise  lake,
particularly ou the southern side of
Pine creek.    The  second gold run,
which was  accompanied  by bluish
gravel, seeiu.s   to  have   come from
the direction of Boulder  aud Birch
creeks and to have also extended to
McKee creek, the gold being bright
but not as   high   grade.    This run
also seems   to   have   been-local, as
indicated by the deposits. |
