July 5.-Several  ���steamers arriving here report that  a teniffic hurricane accompanied by  immense tidal waves has swept over  the'Caroline Islands. ' Some two  diundicd persons are' reported as  having perished.  Denver, July 5.���While addressing a convention of the Western  Federation of Miners, Robert Randall, of Goldfields, predicts a general strike of all the miners throughout the country.- *,  Paris, July 5.���A11 incendiaiy  movement among the peasants nf  the south of France is hastening the  adjournment of parliament to July  7th. This means the shelving of  the income tax, and a number ot  . other measures. -The session-has  been practically barren of results.!  No reforins were realized aud some  were openly abandoned.  Frederickton, July 5.���The judge  has sent the Emtnerson-Crockett  case to a higher court, and the matter will not be heard of again for at  least six months.  Tokio, July 5.���At a joint meeting of seven chambers of coninjerce  here, it vvas resolved to address the  principal chambers of commerce of  America, drawing attention to the  cordial trade relations which have  always existed between the. two  countries, and the serious damage  to the continuance of those relations  by the repeated humiliations which  have been inflicted on Ihe Japanese  subjects on the Pacific coast. They  ask the co-operation of the commercial bodies of - the United States to  bring about the amelioration of the  -present conditions: This, - they  claim, may bring about a solution  of tlie existing difliculties.  Washington, July 5.���Reading  between the lines of the statement  issued by the Japanese chambers of  commerce assembled at Tokio, the  officials at Washington see clearly  that a threat of a boycott against  American goods enteriug Japan is  'implied.  Toulon, France, July 5.���It has  been reported that during the voyage of the French squadron from  Marseilles, the battleship Jaurist  Cuberry collided with the torpe.de  destroyer Pertusane causing death  or injury to about sixty of the men  of the two boats. The maritime  prefectures decline to give the least  information. Confirmation of the  disaster cannot be obtained.  Vancouver, July 5.���Dominion  Day throughout Western Canada  was devoted to athletic sports, every  little town and hamlet had its tournament of sport.     The weather has  been beautiful. One big surprise lo  all was Ihe defeat of the redoubtable  Westininstet lacrosse team by the  Maple Leafs, of Vancouver, by a  score of 12 to 4. -    -  Tokio, July' 5. ���The impression  here regarding tlieanti-Japanse feeling and demonstrations at 'Frisco  is that it is the outcome of a deeply  laid plan based upon racial hatred.  Recent developments apparently go  lo support the impression.' Japanese newspapers with American correspondents in San Francisco have  ceased to receive news from them.  Impression here is that pressure has  been brought to bear upon the correspondents not to serve Japanese  papers. Fear is expressed that the  danger point will soon be reached.  Special to The Claim.-���The  light between" Tommy Bums, the  clever Canadian fighter and Squires  the much vaunted Australian terror,  resulted a little, differently to what  'was expected. Squires was an easy  mark for Burns who put the Australian out in two rounds, knocking  him down three Limes.  Celebration at Discovery.  Trie-celebration of the Dominion  Day at 'discovery was a splendid  success. The different- -creeks furnished a large number of visitors  aud Atlin contributed a couple of  stage loads and   many   private rigs.  The sports were well contested,  though there were no records broken. The baseball match evoked the  wildest enthusiasm-. Some of the  fans did so much 'rooting' that they  had to make journeys into town to  'take something' for it. Professionals might' have' taken tips on the  short-stopping, fry-catching base  stealing, etc. The tug-of-war be-  ween teams from Discovery and  Spruce was won by the strong-armed contingent from the creek.  A grand ball in the evening, held  in the Gold House, wound up the  day's celebration.  Excursion to Glacier.  The Str Scotia will leave Atliu at  8 a. m. Saturday for a trip to the  Glacier by way of Torrey Inlet.  . liverybody is requested to fix up  a lunch and come along. A day's  outing will do you go.  There is probably no company of  individual miners iu the district better known and more generally liked  than that composed of Louis Gierke,  Lyman Hodge, 'Dad'' Davies and  James Kershaw, operating on tipper  Wright creek. It is with great  ���pleasure the announcement is made  that the boys had a splendid cleanup last week. For about a month's  sluicing they got no ounces. This  is a most excellent showing and it  is hoped.the. pay-streak may prove  richer as it is followed. Tom Mach-  ell is working for the company and  Mrs. Machell looks after the coin-  missarv. ��� ���      '  Local and General News.  McDonald's Grocer}- makes a  specialty of fresh eggs and  butter.

Mr. W Pollard Grant returned  to Atliu last Friday from a business  trip to the coast cities.  .Mr. Charles'Gilmore, of Discovery, has beeu appointed a fire warden for the Atlin district.  Miss Maud Haslett'and- Miss Margaret ,McDonald spent a few days  at Taku the first of tlie week as the  guests of Mrs."Kelly.  Mr. James Thompson, who' was  in charge of jtue*0. K. Barber Shop  the past winter, has started business  in Discovery.  M. R. J'. Reid, the local school  teacher, went out last week on a  trip to the lower coast. He will be  away a couple of months.  Miss Anderson, school teacher at  Discovery, left Tuesday for Victoria. She will, not return to the  North asaiu, at least not to take  charge of the school.  The frieuds.of Mr. and Mrs. Jack  Ronayne will be pleased to learn  that" another "mite" has appeared  in the household in the shape of a  son.  The McKee Creek Consolidated  had a banner clean-up last week  registering some 740 ounces. This  is the second clean-up for'the season  and the indications are that 1907  total will be an eye-opener.  Good reports are coming iu.from  all directions. The company of  miners working at the mouth of  Gold Run have had splendid results  from their winter's dump and are  now drifting on veiy good ground.  Jack Kiikland left Atlin this  week for Vancouver. While running the Atlintoo river iu a canoe he  had an upset, escaping with a thorough sousing.  Robert McKee, working on the  O'Donnell river, reports his prospects for the coining season as first-  class. He is confident he will have  a good fat poke by the last clean-up.  Mr. b'red Shields, proprietor of  the O. K. Barber Shop, who has  been away on an eight month's tour  of the Old Country via the U. S.  and Canada, resumed business the  beginning of the week. -Fred looks  well after his long holiday.  Larry O'Connor and Jim McKinnon had'a nasty spill last Sunday  on Otter creek. Coming the hill  down a shalt broke throwing both  men out. Larry turned a few cartwheels while in the air but landed  right side up. Jimmy turned only  once and a half and tried to break a  boulder with the back of his head.  They were perfectly sober.  Arrivals per, Str. Scotia.  July :st.���C A. Carmen, W. A.  Bruner, J.

Hugh Molyneaux, district road  boss, will be busy with his crew  shortly putting in a road to Wilson  creek. A slart will be made from  Blue Canyon, and from there lo  Wilson is about twelve miles.  1  The work now being done on  Ruby creek by the Ruby Creek  Mining Partnership, under the supervision of Mr. Robt. McKay, is  simply further proving the richness  of that valuable" properly. ' Some  very heavy gold was sent down recently from their first sluicing. A  test was made recently by Mr. J.

Only a week or so' ago-the  Princess Beatrice and the City of  Seattle had a brush on Millbank  Sound. The Beatrice" distanced the  Seattle in a very short time. 'To  be sure of comfort, safely aud speed  book your passages on the C. P. R.  boats.  J. E. Gobeil, general-inspector of  Ihe Yukon telegraph service;. Y.

The trails reported as tairiy  good lo Pike river, but horn ther:;  on to Atliu it is iu.rather a bade  state, this is due to the rough country and swamps through which the  trail leads. Remarkably good timo  was made from Telegraph considering that ever)- foot of. the line  had to be carefully measured. After  remaining here a day getting supplies, etc.. the party.set off Thursday morning lo measure the distance between Atlin and Whitehorse.

During the past week wc have  liad three very prominent men in  ihe mininef world visitiw* our dis-  trict, namely; J. Parke Channing,  W. H. Radford and K. A. Schlicfcr.  Mr. Channing was in charge of the  part j' and represents theLewisohns,  of New York, one of the largest  mining corporations in the United  States,' ranking alongside the Gug-  geuheims.  The gentlemen while here visited  the different creeks and workings'  of the camp and wherever they  'went were apparently well satisfied,  very well satisfied, with what they  saw. In their lour of inspection  they included Ruby, Spruce, the  workings on Pine and the hydraulic  operations ou McKee.

They understand, as should all sensible people, that the proper persons to receive their reports and opinions are  those-who sent: .them here, .and not  .the eager aud sometimes loo inquisitive seeker after information, who  may have driven stakes somewhere  near the sky-line.  They informed us they intended  paying us another visit very shortly. There is a.lot.of satisfaction lo  ns in that statement, because a favorable impression must have been  made else why the return trip?

Tlie biggest percentage of  the gold was of a very coarse and  heavy nature, very little, if any,, of  flake or flour gold showing. The  visitors were much impressed by  the showing made, the nature of tlie  gold, aud the general conditions  pertaining.  While visiting Spruce aud Ruby  they took several pans from spots  chosen at random, and iu no instance was the result, unsatisfactory.  The very fact that these gentle-  men were in the camp must be taken as a good omen. For why?  Well, they rcprc-cut money and the  only inference that can be taken is  that "Money" has heard of the  camp and is interested, or, at least  wants lo know what is going ou in  this part ot' the county.

The  Wen/da us   Coal  Company, at  Han.sdorf, Germany, should be given credit   for   the  initiative   it   has  taken iu  this  direction.   .Doubtless  other large   mining oompanies will  follow the same example.
