GOLD PRODUCTION.  Work on the Different Creeks  Steadily Progresses.'  A Synopsis of Work Going- On in  the District��� Gold in Excess  of Last Season Deposited  With  the Local Banks.  Of late weeks it has been too  ready a comment that the camp  seemed slowly but surely dying out  and that it was just a ���question of  lime before we might all have to  "walk" out. Nevertheless, it may  surprise many to know that there  has been received, up to date, at  the local banks, a very considerably  larger amount of gold than at this  time last year, in spite of the fact  that the season's operations were  delayed fully six weeks behind those  of last year, and the output'may be  estimated at $150,000. It may<be  said, with truth, that this year's  work is being clone more by companies and mining - partnerships  than by individual" miners, and this  being so, .it will account, in a large  measure, ^for the absence of "wads"  flashing about after clean-ups are  made. Trade is , this , year more  diversified, most of the creeks having local stores; Lence, there is not  the same need to come to town, and  to "blow himself," as many miners  often do. On the other hand many  of the miners contemplate that this  is their last season, and are desirous  of working out their claims; their  gold is therefore being saved against  their pilgrimage to pastures new,  consequently in Atlin we do not see  as much of it as usual.  Work is steadily progressing on  all the creeks where there is still  ground to be worked, and it will be  a toss up between Spruce and Boulder creeks which will take the banner for the season's output. Pine,  excepting Willow, practically drop's  out of the race this year, as but  little individual work is now going  on on the creek, and, with the exception of Discovery claim, Harri-  gan's, Sabin & Stott's, Lyttle's and  the Simmons partnership's���near  Gold Run���you can almost count  the individuals on one hand. With  the assistance derived from the supply of water from the Sunrise Co.  some of the benches may make a  good showing as may be presumed from the clean-up this week  on Sabin & Stott's benches, where  40 ounces was taken out from one  man's labor for 12 days. On  Discovery claim, work is being prosecuted day and night and the results are said to be highly satisfactory, Fritz Miller claiming that  there is still all of $100,000 to come  out of Discovery yet���let us hope  so. Should the Sunrise Co. obtain  the required permission to operate  with monitors, and   with the 'three  giants now rinstalled, this season's  output would follow very close upon the amount taken out in '99,  and an .immense amount of money  would be .saved to the owners.whose,  claims that company proposes lo  work.  On Boulder there is very great  activity and an immense amount of  work has been done which, fortunr  alely lor those operating, has already been handsomely repaid. A  clean-up on No. 34 below, after  nine day's work with six men, gave  50 ouncts. The Lamare Syndicate is now working in pay and a  good clean-up is looked for,-with  every reasonable assurance that the  gold is there. The company is now  working on the, right rim of the  creek, but hopes to reach bedrock  before the}*; go many feet farther.  The Atlin Lake Mining Co., on  Birch creek, is reported to be getting satisfactory returns, in spile of  the extreme shortness of water-  Means are being devised for obtaining a full supply for the future  working of the property; and it is  hoped that the efforts put forth will  be productive of good results.  Though no direct information has  recently been received from Wright  creek, there is reason to believe that  work is progressing favorably with  the Pendugwig Syndicate, though  the true, bed of' the creek:-' has tic...:  yet been found.. Mr. Baftrira, the  Superintendent, is gradually working over to what he considers the  true channel. A few men. are sluicing on the creek-with fair results.  Otter creek being now practically  owned by leaseholders, little individual work has been done, but the  leaseholders are awaiting the consummation of a big deal, which is  hoped to be closed in the near future.  On Ruby creek the Atlin-  Riiby Creek Hydraulic Co. are now  prospecting. Two of the Directors'  arrived recently from Philadelphia'  to look into matters affecting the  company, and it has been decided  that prospect work has not been  carried sufficiently for the Company  to decide one way or another as to  future operations. Mr. Law, the  Manager, is pushing the development with the view of determining  the best course to pursue.  Spruce creek is receiving a very  large share of individual attention,  and the results all over the creek  are eminently satisfactory. Ground  sluicing on the Blue Canyon property is being diligently pushed  with good results, so also is the property of Mr. Gage and associates on  the east fork of the creek. On the  De Witt leases, to be operated by  the Columbia Hydraulic Co, ��vork  is being steadily prosecuted under ���  the supervision of Mr. Fred Cook.  A large quantity of the plant for  this company has arrived from San  Francisco, and will be hauled to  the ground in the near future.

It becomes our painful duty to  call the attention of miners to  an official advertisement iu connection with the imposition and collection of royalty upon gold taken  out and levied by the Government.  We would rather refrain from making any remarks upon the subject,  but as this last notice is of such  vital interest to all miners who are  or may become liable to the tax, we  feel it our duty to call their special  attention to it. The Act, as passed,  provides for payment every quarter,  but the recent Order' in Council,  which affects this and contiguous  Mining Divisions, provides that the  tax be paid on the first daj* of each  and every month. This, undoubtedly, necessitates much inconvenience and loss of time and money to  miners, who will have to come to  Atlin each month, even if only to  make a "nil" return. The Gold  Commissioner is- instructed to put  into force and effect all the powers  contained in the Assessment Act for  the collection of the royalty.' The  peremptory action on the part of  the Government is presumably due  j to the very great variance between  Mhe amount paid in royalty and the  amount of gold known to have been  won in previous seasons.  COURT MATTERS.  County Court is Opened this  Week.  Several Cases of Much Importance  Before the Chief Justice���  Grand and Petit Juries Em-  pannelled. .  The judgment rendered in the  case of Leshander vs. Irvine, mentioned in another column, is as follows :  "As to the facts, I find upon  the evidence that the alleged partnership is not proved. Counsel  for the Defendant stated that it is a  common practice in this district to  allow the 'grouping' of claims not  held in partnership. Upon consideration, I find, therefore,' that the  'grouping ' of these claims is merely  a circumstance material to be considered in weighing the evidence  and cannot be taken as in itself conclusive in any way.  "Judgment  for Defendants, with  costs   on   the   claim   and   for the  amount claimed  with  costs on the  counter claim."  (Signed).   A. J. McCou., Judge.  We have  learned that there is a  very  strong   probability that Atliii  may be favoured   with a visit   from  The   Hon.    Mr.  James Dunsmuir,  Premier of   British   Columbia, and  some other member of the Cabinet.  Our informant advises us that these  gentlemen will   be accompanied   by  Mr. C. W. D. Clifford, M.L.A., anil  tliat they will   endeavor to come in  during  the  residence ol" Chief Justice McColl.    It  is -their intention  to personally look into the existing  state of affairs in the district and recommend to the  Government  such  matters as may require adjustment.  Here is an opportunity for the Atliii  Board of Trade to show itself.  One of the first' cases of importance to come before Chiel Justice  McColl, sitting iii County Court, on  Monday, was that of Bulette vs.  'Anderson Brothers; a case arising  out of a claim by the plaintiff for an  interest in the gold taken out of  claims on" Spruce creek and operated  by the defendants. From ihe evidence produced it was shown that a  double-set of books was kept and  that these were ' so manipulated as  to give rise to an apparent intention to mislead. Tlie Chief Justice did not spare the litigants and  very strongly commented upon  their actions, dismissing the case  upon the grounds of conduct tainted  with fraud, and giving costs to  neither side. ��� Geo. A. Stewart  Potts, Solicitor for Plaintiff: D. G.  McDonell, for Defendants.;  /The case of Leshander vs. Irvine,  in which the plaintiff claims an interest  in  the defendant's claims on  Spruce creek,   and   that   he was a  partner and entitled to a pro rata'of  all gold won, the Chief Justice is to  give  his  decision   at an early date.  Under-the   Placer   Mining Act of  1899 there, is   no   clause   covering  the grouping of claims whereby all  parties interested -in the group constitute   themselves   into   a mining  partnership.   The question involved  is  one  of moment  as a very large  number of claims in the district had  been  grouped  prior  to the passing  of the Act of   190;.,   and . the issue  raised has a great bearing upon the  interests   of  individuals, ��� who,   in  some instances grouped for working  purposes, while others  grouped for  representation   without   any direct  intention of actually forming themselves  into  a  mining * partnership.  The Chief Justice's decision will be  anxiously   looked    for   by     many  miners   in   the   camp.      Geo.   A.  Stewart   Potts   appeared     for   the  Plaintiff,  and   A. L. Belyea for the  Defendants.  Taku Jack vs. Fetherstouhaugh  was held over until Friday, and is  a case in which plaintiff sues for  Sioo.being the value of a dog shot  by the defendant. Defendant  claims justification for his action  and enters a counter-claim for  damage done to his property by  plaintiff's dog.  The Yellow Jacket case, as between McCaulay etal. vs. Clay et  al. came up for trial on Thursday;  A. L. Belyea appearing for the former and D. G. McDonell,, for the  latter. \  Brookes vs. Sawers:���being an  appeal against the decision of IS. M.  N. Woods, S. M. The appeal was  allowed by the Chief Justice.  Four cases of appeal against the  decision of E. M. N. Woods, S. M.,  iu actions brought by D. H. Hu-  kill, W. A. Smith, Chas. Roseland  and   Chas.

Ward & Hall, on 79-S0 below,, are  doing some excellent work, and  have rich pay in sight. In this  vicinity a great number of men are  at work with excellent prospects  ahead of them.  Satisfactory reports have been  received from Canyon creek, a tributary of Dixie, where Messrs. Mc-  Caughey, Garrison and Winters, of  Skagway, in partnership wilh PI.  A. Baxter, of Atlin, are operating a  small hydraulic plant. The prospects have proved so good that the  owners have decided to increase the  capacity of their plant.  Good reports continue to come  from McKee creek, from the individuals and the hydraulic company.  Mr. Brophy is now in charge of  the Atlin Mining Co.'s property.  To sum up, the indications are  that this season's' output of placer  gold from Atlin will exceed that of  last year, and, further, that it will  go far to offset last year's deficit in  the annual returns. There has not  been a fraction of the gold won  which the district will yet produce.  The momentary quiet spell need  not discourage us, the harvest is  yet to come.
