At Vancouver last week Desire  Brolhier was committed for trial on  a charge ol having forged a doctor's  certificate.  The total number of deaths caused  by accidents in the U. S. on July  4th were 51, as follows: By fireworks, 22; by cannon, 1; by firearms, 11; by explosives, 7; by toy  pistols, 4; by runaways, r, and by  drowning, 5. The number of injured was 2,789, being 35S in excess  of last year's.figures.  A despatch to the state depait-  ment at Washington on the 14t.l1  inst.   stated   that   the  Guatemalan  troops had,met the army of Salvador  mid defeated it.

For these acts he had become the most cordially hated man  in the navy and had long been on  the list of the condemned.  The Law Courts.  Pine Cieek Flume Co., Ltd., vs.  Pine Greek Power Co., Ltd., et al.  The following is a synopsis of the  injunction granted herein by the  Supreme Court on June 2Sth: "An  injunction is granted restraining the  defendant companies from further  proceeding with erection of dam at  Surprise lake, and from in any way  interfering with the natural flow of  water from Surprise lake into Pine  creek, or otherwise interfering with  the use of the water flowing from  Surprise lake into Piue creek by the  plaintiff company."  To us the order granted herein is  both funny and foolish and of which  no good can come. We do not like  to see our courts being led into such  grave errors as this and at the same  time being made public laughing  stock.  Mining Notes.  The Spruce creek steam shovel,  under the joint management of  Messrs. Fetherstonhangh and Warren, has been doing wonderful execution on the gravel this week and  they anticipate a big clean-up very  shortly. With the addition of a  second skip, providing water will  allow it, they expect to obtain very  handsome results. We understand  that the company is bringing in two  shovel-men from below;, in the  meantime the Atlin Consolidated  Mining Company had kindly lent  two shovel-men.  The work accomplished by Messrs. Carmichael and associates ou  Otter creek speaks very well for the  judgment and energy of these men.  Piping was commenced on the 21st  May, the water being alternated between the upper and lower pits, and  at the present time the company  has a fair supply of water, at a 1S0  foot head, 1 which is being used  through a four inch monitor. Up  10 the present time 20,000 cubic  yards have been handled from the  upper pit, and a cut 130 feet long  by 30 feet wide, and with a diift of  250 feet at the back, has been moved  from the lower pit. Pieces going as  high as eight ounces having been  picked up on bedrock promises well  for the fall clean-up.   '  Quartz   Development  On the British Columbia Side in  the Windy Arm District��=Work  Progressing Steadily.  . Last October Mr. W. Fleet Robertson, the provincial mineralogist,  reported on the Windy'Arm district  and gave ther'opinioh that the British Columbia side of the inter-provincial line would ultimately turn  out to be the richer. Since that  time a lot of prospecting and development work has been carried oa  over the belt of country entendii.g  from Toochi lake to the footr of the  lake south of Golden Gate. From  what we can gather from prospectors, from mining men who have  examined many of these propositions, and from the assays, we believe that we have in our distiict  one of the richest mineral belts in  the province.  ' Dale and Johnson are working'on  their claims near the western end of ���  Toochi lake and, from  the showing  made, they'will no doubt be as successful in   placing their property'as  Mr. Dale has'already been with two  other  propositions.    Mr. Dale, who  is a prospector  of   experience   and  was ,-one  of the first locators in the ;  Windy Arm district, expresses himself ^in a very enthusiastic   manlier ' ,^ ���.  in regard to the future of this coim-   '  try..   He has not made a   failure of  anything   he   has   tackled   in  the  Windy Arm camp, and when a man  makes  good  we believe his opinion  is worth listening to.  Messrs. Sweet, Berger and Fleming, of Spruce creek, have been  working in the district since early  in March, opening up their properties on Taku Arm and Toochi, and  they are to be congratulated on the  magnificent showing they have  made. We took a trip to the Windy  Arm district last week and while  there met these gentlemen. They  brought in with them average samples of their, Toochi mine. There is  no doubt but that their property is  the best in that district. The assay  runs high; there is a large body of  the ore well situated ou the lake for  shipment; two tunnels have been  run in. and development work is  being pushed. When it became  known how good their results were  two or three parties set out immediately to stake extensions on the lead.  There have been rumors lately  that work was to be shut down in  the Windy Arm district, but af'.'jr a  careful investigation we can assure  our readers that there is no foundation for these stories. New properties are being opened up; ' the  work is progressing steadily and  while it may seem slow to some, yet  it should be remembered that the  opening up of quartz mines takes a  lot of money and time. The mousy  is being expended judiciously, and  the progress made is as rapid as is  consistent with careful'management  aud with a view to the ecoiirmi-.'A  and successful nianageiiieus A uie  future.

There are a'large number of prospectors in the Windy Arm district  on the British Columbia side and  many records and transfers are  being made. '���      '  Great inconvenience was-caused  the prospectors from the fact that,  in order' to record their claims, a  tiip to Atlin was necessary.' There  is not enough business to justify the  appointment of a permanent official,  but in order to meet the requirements of the prospectors a temporary appointment has been made.  The matter was laid before the  department by Dr. Young, M.P.P.,  who recommended the appointment  of Mr. Geoffery Butler, purser of  the Gleaner. .This appointment is  for the summer and will cover, the  prospecting season. The Gleaner  will be at Wynton twice a week,  when Mr. Butler will accept all  records or transfers.     *    .���     ::  As the district develops and circumstances warrant it a permanent  official will be stationed at Wynton.

There  is   110  doubt that a refractory ore mine in  the Atlin district would have to  be  a physical phenomena to pay under  the present conditions.    Happily for  us our mining editor, who is a person  of wide-world  knowledge and  travel���although  the remainder of  the staff do not vouch for his sanity  or   savoir  faire, has suggested that  through a more intimate knowledge  . of   occultism,   or   occult   art,    the  freight   problem   might   easily   be  solved.    Through this occult art  a  block of marble has been  conveyed  in   an instant from Bombay to Calcutta, and  letters  have   been   sent  with a rapidity which would render  the telegraph obsolete.    Then, why  not apply this  method to the shipment   of   Atlin  ore?    The mining  editor, for further information, gives  us .these particulars, that through ;a  maslery over the subtule  chemistry  .of   Nature   elements  can  be taken  from the atmosphere and  combined  or  moulded  into any visible object  by the synthesis of invisible atoms,  and also solid substances  can be resolved  into  the most minute molecules, and these molecules   can   be  wafted  on  an occult current to any  distance   and   there  re-united into  their original form.

As   Others   See  the   Yukon.  The  leader  of the opposition in  the Canadian House of Commons,  Hon. R. L. Borden, called attention  to the comparatively small  amount  that   has   been .collected in Yukon  gold royalties since the discovery of  the Klondike gold fields   10   years  ago.    The output of gold had been  $114,000,000,   and   if royalty had  been  paid on all this it would have  yielded seven millions in revenue to  ���the'Dominion.'   The returns,   however,   showed  actual collections of  r$2,250,000.   ' A   new   source     of  wealth   had  been discovered in the  Yukon,   greater  perhaps  than   the  original   discovery.     It   has   been  found   that   the   gravel   of White  Channel   carries   gold   in    paying  quantities  and  can be successfully!  mined by the cyanide process.   Thej  gold   output   of May creek  up to  June 16th this year is over $i,ogo,-j  000, which is double  that   of   last;  year to that date.

The Whitehoise Star of the 13th  inst. stated as lollows: Major K. A.  Snyder is authority for the statement  that the police of Yukon will aid in  the work of blazing a route to be  followed by the Peace river and "Yukon trail, work on which is now in  progress on the further'end. , Inspector McDonell,of the Whitehorse  post and division, accompanied by  three men, will leave in a few days'  for Atlin, from which place they  will select and blaze1 a trail as far  south and east as McDame creek,  which place the trail builders from  the other end are expected to reach  this fall, and where it is expected  they will go into camp for the winters Next spring work' will be resumed along the route selected by  Inspector McDonell, Atliii' to be the  western terminus. The Whitehorse  party will return this fall, probably  about the first of November. The  Peace River-Yukon trail has been  in contemplation for several years,  in fact, considerable work was done  on it and a number of bridges were  constructed as far back as 1897, the  object being to have an all-Canadian'  route to the Yukon. At that time  the intention was to build it to the  head of navigation on the Pelly  river. This idea was later abandoned and the trail will come to Atlin..  Ignorance   of the   Bible.  ���"What is the meaning of the word  liaster?" said John Drew at a club.  No one could answer the question and Mr. Drew, with a frown,  went on:  "Nobody reads the Bible now.  The public's ignorance of the Bible  and of Biblical things is amazing.  A Biblical allusion is nowadays as  unintelligible as a Greek allusion.  "Not long ago at a dinner I got  into a Biblical- argument. When  the argument was over a young  Jady said:  " 'I enjoyed that discussion splendidly. But, you know, I always  thought that Sodom and Gomorrah  were man and wife!'
