Among the items was  one   of   great" importance -to   the  people of this district, ��� viz.:    Telegraph lines, 'Bennett to Dawson and  .branch to'Atlin, ^$148,000;   Ques-  nelle to Atliii telegraph line, $225,-  000 ; public ^buildings Yukon district,   $700,000.   , This  means  that  when these lines are completed that  there will'be a complete telegraphic  service between here and Vancouver,  and consequently with', all the rest  of the continent. " The other items  of interest'to British Columbia are:  Rosslaud public buildings, $15,000;  New'���Westminster* public building,  $15,000 ; J Nelson  public' building,  $15,000';    Vancouver- Drill .Hall,  $8,000 ;   protection of bank'of Columbia river at Revelstoke, $10,boo;  new dredging plant in British' Col-  fish hatcheries  S-k'eetfa'tli^ersr  $12,000 ; ' for "-relief^of   distressed  people along the' Liard and Dease  rivers,   $25,000 ;-'-Yukon   district  trails, roads and bridges, $175,000.  output was 440,675 ounces, 'of which  419,504 came from the Rand mines.  The gold was valued at $18.25 per  ounce.   ' The  total  output  in   thef  Transvaal  in    1884  was   ,��10,096.  Ten years later, in  1894,   it had increased to .��7,667,152, and for the  year   ending   December,    1898,   it  amounted to ��"17,081,632, and  for  the 15 years ��71,069,605, equal to  $355i348.025.    It should��� be borne '  in   mind   that   the-1 whole  of the"  Transvaal  mines   are- free-milling,  resembling rather the Ontario ores  than those of this  Province.    The '  gigantic growth of gold mining in \  the Transvaal during the" space' of  12 or  14 years, ,is a suggestion to  Canadians of the extent of development the next few years may see in "  the Dominion.  The United States <is making extensive demands on the iron ore  resources of Newfoundland, India,  South America, - the Mediterranean  and the Black Sea, fonthe supply of  thcsteel trade.        ,f     V     t\.

The United States does not think  the time ripe to take a hand in the  game in the Transvaal.  Steps are being taken to have  the Klondike duly represented at  the Paris exposition of 1900.  < The New Westminster team de-  feated Vancouver seniors at lacrosse  July 15, 4 to 1.  The American liner Paris has  been successfully floated.  News has been received at Victoria of a rich strike of placer gold  at Ucluelet, west coast of Vancouver Island.  The Newfoundland budget shows  a deficit for the last fiscal year, but  a surplus for the present one.  The Washington authorities say  that Lord Salisbury tried to get  ahead of them in the Alaskan negotiations.  The Canadian Pacific Navigation  Co. have made a proposition to  Victoria to establish a swift gulf  ferry.  The Standard and Diggers' Journal of Johannesburg recently gave  an interesting summary of the gold  output of the Transvaal for the  month of December, 1898, and for  tlie last 1.5  years,    The  December  Disturbances in Guatemala'will  necessitate demonstrations ou the  part of the Powers.  Ex-,Consul-General Rose,* of Ger-'  many, at Samoa.- speaks cheerfully,  of conditions there, >, -      V  - Further French' outrages in Newfoundland are ,not lessening ' the  friction on the Treaty Coastr (  The Senate defeated the^redistribution bill.  *.i '  The city council of Vancouver  have accepted $2,000 in settlement  of damages against the steamer Lau-  rada, who sometime ago tore up  the water main by going' out of her  course. She will call therein future.  Christopher A. GeofFrion, Q. C,  a well known figure in Dominion,  died on July 17.  Senator Fairbanks, chairman of  the joint high "American-Canadian  commission, called on Secretary Hay '  recentlv and had an extended inter-  view. The Senator still expressed  confidence that some arrangement  might be made which would result  in a resumption of the negotiations  on the 'Alaskan boundarj- question,  He reported to the secretary the  conclusions he ^ had reached as a  result of his observations in Alaska.  H. C. Hoffman reached Seattle,  July 19th, from Alaska, with news  of the death of four companions in  the terrible Black Hole of Alaska,  while hunting for a diamond mine,  The dead are Walter Dodds, of Pat-  erson, N. J.; James LaBelle, of  Lower Canada ; ���-, Enrich, New  York, and Harry Martin, of New  York.  Gen, Alger, secretary of war, has  tendered his resignation to the President who accepted the same.

APuesclay next, August 1, is an  important day in this district.,- Itis  the day on which all placer claims  must be represented and actual work  'begun. Last week we printed the  clause from tlie Placer' Mining act  setting down the law in this regard.  We reprint it again this week lest  some should not have seen it. The  following is section 38, An Act Relating to Placer Mines (as amended  in 1898 and 1899):  ' 'Every placer claim as defined by  this act shall be represented and  bona fide.worked ,by the holder  thereof, or ,by some person on'his'  behalf,, continuously, as' nearly as  practicable, during working hours,  ' aiid shall be deemed to be abandoned and absolutely forfeited when  the same shall have remained un-  ��� 1  worked on working days by the  holder thereof, or some person on  his behalf, for the period of seventy-  two hours, except during the close  season, some lay-over, or leave of  absence, of during isickness, or for  , some other reasonable cause which  shall be shown to the satisfaction of  the Gold Commissioner."  lines into our provincial affairs. The  other side, viz.,' the Liberals', are  equally-as vehement in their protestations of innocence in this regard.  All of which is extremely ludicrous.  It is as apparent as the sun in the  heavens that both'1 Liberals and  Tories are playing for, the control  of affairs, and that they have, been  ever since nominations were made  previous to the election last summer.  !While'we are opposed to engrafting'  Dominion issues into our provincial  elections, yet we confess that well defined party lines are preferable to  the nresent ' chaotic condition v 'of  affairs.

But how would it be,  rev. brother, if the shoe was on the  other foot.  The  political ' comedy   at   Ottawa continues and it is just as ex-  crutiatingly funny'as ever.   ' Before  the  election - the    present   Liberal  members , protested ��� with   tears   iu  their eyes   that  Japanese 'must be  excluded from'this country.    Now  Sir Wilfrid   Laurier,   for- Imperial  reasons, disallows anti-Japanese legislation. Suddenly -Mr. Bostock realizes   that the Japs  are  all   right;  that, they   readily  assimilate  with  o-.ir own people.    Col. Prior, ou the  other hand, rages furiously and says  ,that white labor in Canada will be  swamped if something is not done.  The latter apparently forgets that  he sat for man}- years iu the  Commons and had little to say on, this  point until  he   was ,in opposition.

There is one way in which the  government' agent could confer a  boon on this community, and that  is by erecting a small jetty at the  foot of the streets leading into the  lake. Then one might get a pail  of water without the garbage that  hugs the shore.  Lieut.-Gov. Mclnnis remarked  before leaving Atlin that he was  going down to take his boys in  hand and see if he couldn't put a  stop to their quarreling. We have  a shrewd suspicion, however, that  he didn't arrive in Victoria until  after that government caucus was  held. His position has not been a  'sinecure for the past year. '  ��� Much speculation is being indulged in iu this niche o' the woods  as to the outcome of the present  quarrel in the Provincial cabinet.  Does it mean an election, a coali-  t tion or will the government members unanimously agree to turn  down the fiery Joe. The man on  the street is in a quaudry and will  apparently only rest easy when news  arrives of the result of the caucus held Thursday last. The News-  Advertiser, Mr. Cotton's organ, denies that there is anything in the  talk of a coalition. At the same  time it protests that both Messrs.  Semlin and Cotton are opposed to  the introduction ol Dominion  party  After .the interior .Trade.  The following circulur bus been issued by  the Skugwuy Board of Trade:     ..    ,   , '  ' From the merchants'of Skagway to''the  merchants of the interior.���Tne Skugwuy  Chamber ot Commerce," in the- interest* of  the jobbers and merchants of the city, succeeded on June "ilfat in effecting- an arrangement b.v which, goods purchased here, or  ordered by mail, may be shaped immediately und cross the boundary without delay,  and the customs duties and freight chaises  be collected on delivery.* Skagway merchants, ever since the success of lake steamboat navigation lust full, huve been laying- in  immense stocks with the confidence of being  able to secure and hold the whole jobbing  trade of the interior. Hut they huve been  handicapped themselves and hampered iu  business by the difficulty of estimating customs charges and the costs of transportation. In short the only sutisfuctory way to  ship goods was to send an ugent with each  shipment to see the goods through the customs and ou board the steumer ut Bennett,  so uncertain were the amount of charges on  such goods.  Now all this is happily changed und the  jobbing merchants are pluced in a position  beyond possible competition. They are buying ut first band und havo yearly contruots  with the steamship companies that reduces  their freight charges from 2S to 50 per cent.  Carload lots of any single commodity may  now be ordered in Skagway, us, if one merchant may not be uble to fill a very large  order for one specific article, the others will  lend their assistance, all being imbued with  the ambition to build up the fume of the  city for fuvoruble terms, good iiuulity of  goods and the quickness with which orders  cm be idled.  Tlie excellent arrangement which bus been  made l>y tlie Chumber of Commerce is with  the b.jntiett Lake A Klondike Navigation  Co., which company undertakes to pay all  railroad und steamer chargos and all customs, without any cost to the' shipper or  consignee, sui e that of customs brokerage of  $2.31) on each shipment, whether large or  small, and to collect such charges from the  consignee on delivery. Under this- urrunge-  uieiit goods may also be ordered C. O. D.,  and the company w ill collect tho wholo bill  on delivery, the merchant guaranteeing the  charges. The companj also undertakes to  expedite the delivery of orders to the merchants, as well as the speedy delivery of  goods, so that time und money may be saved  by ordering Irom Skagway.

Stunlo"., un allon, having located und made  application for record to Coimtabln Wood-  li iiiho 11H fur back* an August last, conceived  the Idea that, uftiir the puuimgo of the Alien  act, bo would not bis entitled to hold his  claim. Ho wont ou thu claim, altered his  postH and tho uuino of tho locutor from tlio  Hattlo to tho Mable, and altering tho name  of the locator from Stanley to Margorot  Thomas, Hold having jumped tho claim on  ucuount   of    liiHiifllcloiirj   ,of    stakes,   now  ' sought to uvnil himself of thin Irregularity,  iin well an of Stanley being an allon, saying  that Im hud no right as an alien to locate a  claim for Margaret Thomas, although sho is  a Hritish subject. The Commissioner, without deciding the Muestion whether an alien  could locate for a Hritish subject under  power of attorney or otherwise, declared  that Bold was not entitled to Jump the claim,  heeaiisci us u freo miner, he is only'permitted to tuke luud not legally occupied for  milling- purposes; und this cluim. the Alien  act permitted Stunley to dispose of in any  wuy ho chose. In this cuse the disposition  instead of beiiigbj bill of sale iu the usual  w 10 , Stanley effected tho truusfer by chang-  ing thoAinmes on the posts, acting iu this  w uy because ho was not uble, owing to tho  condition of the records, to deal with the  property ns u recorded property, and  he, as  ' agent for Miss Thomas, having pluced men iu  possession for mining purposes, the land  wiis not open for relocutiou by Reid. Once  tho land is legally occupied for mining purposes, it is not open for.restuking.  Mitchell vs. Lucavish���Although there w ere  three opponents to Dr. Mitchell iu this case,  two of thein uhuudoned any rights they hud,  leaving it to Lucuvish, who staked as the  Woodlaw 11 ou October 10, 1898, o^er Mitchell's  staking in the previous August. The judgment wus given iu favor of'the first settler,  notwithstanding any'defects he might have  as' to representation. Lucuvish had notice  of Mitchell's* record, and when he went on  staked ground he did so at his peril.  FHIDAY, JULY 21." * J  ��� McKuj vs. Green, Garrison und others.���  Kiernuu, creek claim on Pine. This cuse  took practically all day, and_wus .decided as  follows: McKay, as against all the contending parties, was adjudged entitled to 100  feet square, measured from his upper stukes,  Mr. Green to pay costs which were fixed at  $75. In the contest which ensued between  Green and Gnrrison for the remainder of  the ground iu dispute, Garrison wus held to  own the ground commencing at" McKay's  lower line of the Kiornan claim to the original Kieruan No. 2 po*t, McKay having staked  Hourly 200 feet. A fraction left between the  ground given to Garrison and the Homer  claim, owned by Mr. Wullaco, went to Green.  8ATUKDAY, JUDY 22.  McEimnj vs. Doefner��� McEnany, the petitioner, staked the "16 to 1" claim on Wright  creek on the 3rd of September last, and also  staked other claims on Otter and Wright  creeks subsequetitlj.

Doefner  cut the notice off the stakes and went to  work. The Commissioner confirmed Mc-  Enany's title, and ordered Doefner to len>e  the claim. He had/no business on staked  ground, nnd the notice was-a warning to  everybody thnt this ground was taken up  by another man. Doefner will pny McEnany  *-80 costs.

There being no funds in  tlio hands of the Gold Commissioner to contest Eemeyer'H claim, the ground was  awarded to the latter.  MONDAY, JULY 24.  Northwest No. 11 below on Pino.���This was  the petition of Mrs. A. L. Short, one of tho  original stakers under the Northwest Territories luws. The contest wus principally between Mrs. Short and Mrs. Smith, but the  other contestants wore A. Chapollo, Thomas  McLellnn nnd S. LovolK It was shown iu the  evidence that Mrs. Short hnd chosen the  middle 100 feet, and that ground was accordingly awarded to her, but ns Mrs. Smith had  spent some $500 on the claim, it was suggested by the Commissioner that no doubt Mrs.  Short would come to some arrangement  with Mrs. Smith as to repayment of this outlay. The judgment, therefore, was that Mrs.  Short take her 100 feet measured up stream  from the No. 2 and 3 line of the Russel 1 claim;  that the Hardscrnbble claim (S. Lovell) take  a   fraction   running   down   from  the  No. 2  Hurdscrubble post to tho llurdsorubble No. !!  post. The Pearl (Thos. MeLellun) will tuke  100 feet up from tho lower line, and tho Cariboo (Alox. Chupelle) will tuke the remaining  fraction. This leaves 1011 feot of Mrs. Short's  stuking not dealt with, but which was not  before the Commissioner.  .Tl'l'.MUAY,   JUNK  25.

The District Swarming With Prospectors and Misquitos1,  So, Mr. Editor; you would like nn item or  tw o,from the Otter lake country. Well, pass  along jour pencil and I'll see whut I can do  tin j ou in that lino. .       /  lu the first pluce allow me to congratulate  the people of Atlin on the general ubsence of  that pesky little animal known to naturalists un'd other members of'the genus homo  as the mosquito, together with his first  coUhiu, the moose liy. In the neighborhood  of Otter lake these pests'-have been great  uuisuuees for u mouth pust. Iu fuct the locusts of Egypt muy be classed as small potatoes uloug side of the Otter, luke mosquito  family.,     '.''.'      ' - ,  Notw ithstiinding this plague of flies prospectors in large numbers have'been scouring the mountains, rivers and minor streams,  with more or less success.,. But the peculiar  formation of the country is u puzzle to old  miners, und tenderfeet, too, for that mutter.  Defined ledges of gold bearing rock it seems  impossible to find. Blanket ledges, kidneys,  seums and huge dj kes or blow outs tliei e ure  iu pleutj, but the quality is of low grude,  ranging considerably below *2U. The much  talked of Kedmun mine has "petered" out  if Mr. Kedmau is to be believed. It was nothing else, in the first pluce, thun a small blanket. Auother party, w hose name I have forgotten, has discovered a blanket ledge rich  enough to warrant the 'putting up of an  arastre, and great things are hoped from it.  On the Taku Arm, south of Hales, Mr. Russell and his partner huve discovered copper  which runs *12.S0 in copper and .*2.50 iu free  gold.  Bjerremarth, Gladwin, Glendeiiuiug and  Clode each have quartz claims, the highest  being $24. There is an immense quuutity of  ore in sight on these claims.'  While there is no doubt of large quantities of low grade ore existing in w hat may bo  termed the Atliii district, the question arises  as to whut is to be dono with it in the absence of a smelter? Cobalt, nickel, silver,  gold und evidences of cinnabar are mixed up  together. We have u ruilroud, und the next  grand need is a smelter. See the point, Mr.  Editor? We miners huve to rely on the press  to bring such mutters to the notice of capitalists.  U-No Hoo.  I  TWO. ENTERPRISING   FIRMS.  W. R.
