A COWARDLY TRICK. ,       '  The delegation  which   was sent  to Victoria by the miners to lay the  grievances existing in this district  before 'the  Provincial  government  have returned, bringing the information that  they  had   been   promised that the close season would  cease five diys after'official,infor-  .  -mation could be got  to  the Gold  Commissioner.      The   Gold   Commissioner, we are informed, received  word to the effect that the whole  matter was left entirely in his hands,  to open it or leave it closed as he  ' saw  fit.      Mr.' McKinnon,   one of  the delegation,' states that he asked  Mr.   Hume,    Minister    of   Mines,  whether he  had  been  advised by  Mr. Graham to continue the close  season.   He replied in the negative,-  ' adding .that Mr.' Graham  had  advised  against doing so      Finding  < themselves in a tight fix they now  throw the* whole responsibility o 1  Mr.  Graham.    Cojld anything bt:  more contemptible or more cowardly.    First'they take from the Gold  Commissioner the powers given him  by 'the Placer, Mining" act,  at  the  instance of their heelers*- (As to the  legality of this the doctors of the  law disagree.) Then when they find  they have brought a storm of wrath  down upon their heads they turn  and   'throw   the  "responsibility   of  opening the season within five days  upon  the Gold Commissioner.

The business men of Atlin could  not do better at present than form a  board of trade. By united action  on their part much might be done  that would be of great benefit to the  district.  Premier Green way of Manitoba  has promised the people of that  province prohibition if they will  give him another lease of power.  From what is known of the legislators of Manitoba it is to be feared  that "awful thirst" will never permit them to commit such an act of  folly. But then it is an ante-election promise, you know.  A MAMMOTH EXCURSION TO ATLIN'  SUGGESTED.  ISnrroH CriAl\t:l~Sir,���It  must bo satisfactory to all  well-vviiliors of Atlin district to  observe that tho reputation of tho camp on  tho outside is beginning to recover from tin-  effect of the us.-iaultx made  upon it by people who left  here  in  a  dissatisfied statu  of  mind some f��\v  weeks back.   These  people  denounced the district ai "no good"  fr-im  a  mining standpoint .mil   th<��sn  denunciation1.  ��ere   scattered   broadcast   in ,tln*   oiifsirlo  press".   That thf.se disappointed people spoke  u hat they believed to be true may be admitted, but they spoke in ignorance, for at that  time the  minimi-, capabilities of the district  had not been testod, and the shameful  offi-  ���ial drawback-,'under  which the c.i.np l.ib-  o'ri"it   w'fre   sufficient   to dishearten  almost-  any man. l But to-d.��y the conditions are different,  .iud I am s.ifo in s'tyiug that there i.  mo'"man  who kno.vsithe conditions  in  the  oiines. and i.  aware  of  tlira  success   thnt   is  being  so sfotiuiiiliy  tiMt  in  gold-gotting in  the di-.triet, but  b"lieves tfi.it, Atlin   lias   a  long period of steady_aiid strong prosperity  before  it.   Its success From a mining standpoint is now beyoMil question.   Tlie  remaining mouths of the  present Vear  will  show  most satisfactory results, and mpjU year will  undoubtedly be a year of gn>at activity and  prosperity. ��� ������  The opinion1 (if the outside world ���thanks  mainly to the letters of some good press correspondents here���is being improved as to  Atlin, as I have said, and no effort should be  lost to completely retrieve the good name  of the camp. With this object in view I am  going to suggest that the enterprising people of this city should consider the advisability of organizing a mammoth excursion of  mining and business men _ to the district  from the outside this fall. I believe it could  easily be mado successful, because the transportation ^companies ou' the coast as well as  in the interior here would "uo'doubt 'gladly  co-operate to make it so. What more charming excursion could be planned than a September trip up the coast, and over the  White Pass Railway and connecting steamers to Atlin! If a sufficiently low fare could,  be obtained (and I believe it could) hundreds  would come simply for the pleasure of the  thing, while still hundreds -uiore would  come on business bent. And it is, of course,  these latter that we specially want. In September our mines vv ill bo showing up better  than ever, and the weather will be delightful. Let some of Atlin's best men get together at once and push this thin? along.  Wjt.  HaI��jT,IE.  Atlin, B.

To the Editor of the Claim:  Dear Sir���In your paper ot July 1st you  state that hotels under canvas rooLi have  had to close down. How is it thpy are allowed to do business here still. Notices were  s-ei ved on proprietors of hotels here early in  the year notifying owners if they did not  have wooden buildings by June 1st thej  would be closed.** One hotel here complied  with the law und there became a fixture.  The others did not and as a consequence  have been able to move over to the depot of  the jerk-water line and start new hotels under canvas, as business has moved to that locality. At present they are allowed to conduct business under canvas with impunity,  bo that it is much the best to take no notice  whatever of such orders. This is particularly the case If you are prepared to graft some  one of the .Martin grafters who are dispensing tho law in those parts.  Ohhkkveh.  Log Cabin, July II, ISOfl.
