Another new industry- has just  been addid loAtlin's resources; we  mean tlie opening of the Atlin  Brewing Co., with Mr. Wehrfrilz  as manager. A reporter looked over  the premises yesterday and found  everything in running order. A  solid, old-established look pervaded  all.- Barrels piled up in all directions, engine and vats all in place.  One of the latter was full to the top  of creaming steam beer ���which would  have made the reporter's ir outli  wafer in former unregeuerafe clays.  The product ot the brewery for the  present will consist solely, of steam  beer in barrels and bottles, and  from Mr. Wcbrfrilz's experience  she quality should be well up to the  mark. Ths. consumption ought to  be large if the price is not too  much so, a::d we think the brewery has come to stay as a paying  proposition.   *  WE FEAR NOTHING.  Merchants and business people all  over the world always fea'r the  dreadful months of the year, namely.

No ptiper will he delivered  unless those conditions are complied with.  To many   unthinking  readers  it  seems the easiest thing in the world  to run n   weekly   paper,, like  Two, for  instance.     Some   even  imagine that it  is   all   done   in   an  ���hour or  two  oil the evening  preceding publication.    We do not believe in the way some   papers   have  of hectoring their reader's and   subscribers in the way of unpaid  subscriptions   and   advertisements," ab  though, en passant,   we  may   hint  we  have    a " lew   apparently   gilt-  edged accounts.that wc  will gladly  sell for so cents on the dollar.    So  %.rtt  long as we consider it pays to run  the paper, the paper -will appear.  When we consider it a losing game  we .will cheerfully throw it up and  got, to mending boots, dealing  "black-jack," 1 mining a dance hall  or some other honorable and profitable employment.  We think all thinking   men  will  agree that a newspaper is an .essential to any camp  which   wishes  to  have a reputation  of being a live  one.    Above all,   the  mining  and  development  news  should be  blazoned   forth in its pages so that the  outside  world iray know of Atlin's  existence and desirability as a field  for financial investment.   We think,  in     this   connection,   that  it  is   a  duty ou all who  have interests in  the  district, to keep their representative paper posted on all that occurs  worthy of note, more  especially  in  the mining line.    Our staff is necessarily a very limited  one,   and,,   in  the pursuit of mining   in formal ion  for publication   receives .frequently  something very like a rebuff instead  of encouragement.     We ar: practically told that is none of the paper's  business or the public's either  how  such and such a mine is prospering.  This policy is neither profitable nor  patriotic.     It IS the business of the  paper to make known to the public  and to disseminate wherever its circulation reaches, all  news  tending  to the" district's advancement,   and  it is the duty of every   mair in  the  district to help strengthen  it  in   so  doing by supplying it with  all  the  information   in   his    power.     The  paper - and   the   public   are   both  working    together  for  a  common  end.    If they don't hold Atlin  up  in a favorable light befoie the world  and  have   Atlin talked about, then  Atlin may as well shut up shop and  take a long, long holiday.  The moral of all this is���when  you know of anything of public interest, let the newspaper man know  it the first thing.  make decent the spot in which any  of us may be so, soon lying. And  so wags the world away.'  ' We do not wish to pose as alarmists,   but, seeing-that, typhoid is rife  in   Nome and Dawson, and that-we  have no particular call, for  exemption, using, as we mostly do, water  more  or less tainted from along the  lake front, it  would   be  an  act  of  common prudence  to'boil all water  used   for   drinking purposes.    Let  this be   done   for   the   next    two  months, or until the warm   turn   is  over.    An ounce  of prevention  is  worth a pound of cure at any time.  !  British America Corporation, Cd.

Mr. Henry Bateman, C. E.,  whose illness in London we referred to in our last, died on the 19th  June, having only survived an  operation for cancer of the stomach  two days. The deceased gentleman  was very prominent in Australian  mining circles before coming here,  and bore an untarnished reputation.  Whilst in London this spring he  successfully floated a company to  develop the leases on Throu Gulch,  and which is now being surveyed  by Livingston Thompson. P. L. S.  Mr. Bateman's death is peculiarly-  regrettable at the present juncture.  He had the greatest faith that  Thron Gulch is the dry channel of  a former great river, and, if he had  lived, would have watched developments there with  great  interest.������'  Mr. Bateman's age was presumably  about 60.

'  At'the return match held here on  Saturday last, the Atlins walked  the Pines into cam: in great style.  The 'weather was all that co.ild be  desired, and "do or die" was the  Atlins war cry. Nobly they avenged their crushing defeat on Dominion Day. The tea.ui lined up  shortly after.3 o'clock and th- first  .half was passed without any material advantage, neither side securing a point. The Pines were here  weakened by Mr. J. Lumsdeu receiving a severe inj -iry to his kneecap, necessitating his .retirement  from the game. The Pines played  one man short in the second half,  and the Atlins rushed them' for all  they were worth. Four goals w;re  kicked in quick succession, and  when time was called, the Pines  were in possession of a handsome  duck's egg���otherwise- O. Thus  was Waterloo avenged and the  nugget pin prizes kept in AtHn.  The conquering match will take  place at Pine next. Saturday. A  broom detachment has been secured  to sweep the grou..d clear of the skin,  hair and teeth which are sure to be  plenteously shed, as the match will  be "for blood, lago.-"  After Saturday's match the Atlins took the conquered team into  port at the Grand Hotel are refitted them most handsomely.

'  The   following, in^ relation to our  late election and the possibility of a  new one, is  taken   from  the  Vancouver Province of July 9th:  "Whether or not there is to be a  new election in Cassiar- cannot be  determined, for there is a fairly  complete comedy of errors still on  the boards in connection with the  recent contest in this northernmost  district ot the province.  The first complications developed  through the failure of the ballot  boxes to reacli' Hazelton and Skide-  gate, as a result of which the few-  electors at these points were disfranchised. This would not have  been so material, but for the fact  that the difference in the vote between Mr. Stables and Captain Irving was so slight that it was quite  possible for the Hazelton and  Skidegate votes to have reversed  the result.  Then came the disappearance of  the Atlin and Bennett boxes, which  were included in .the baggage of  the ^returning- officer ou his way  down" from Skagway to Victoria.  These boxes, have- not yet been  found,, and the government just at  present is obliged to await the outcome .of the steps, that are being  taken to trace and recover them.  Alter the official count, which  may give a result excluding the  possibility of the Hazelton and  Skidegate votes affecting the general result, the government will be  in a better position to form an  opinion as to. -what should be  done, 01 the matter left to the decision of the Legislature, which assembles on the 19th.  I. any event Mr. Clifford will  probably be allowed to. take his  seat."

The cold was  intense. It is conceded by steamboat men that it will not be practicable to enter Glacier bay this  season.���Juneau Truth..  PINE TREE HOTEL.  DISCOVERY, B. C.
