Ruby Creek Will be Producer.  Summary of Work Done by Mining  Partnership���A Deep Wash-  Fair  Values   Found.  Ruby creek, as is well known;  was practically 11 nprospected until  the leases were cancelled and the  ground was located by individuals  in 1903.-  The Ruby Creek Mining Partnership holds some 3,000 feet by location and some 2,250 feet by purchase, giving them a very nice area  of ground.  Prospecting was started and an'  open cut, with pole sluices, was run  some 250 feel when rim was encountered, upon which fair prospects  were found.  The iim was cut through for some  distance and then Ihe cut was sheered off' at right angles and the old  channel was found. ' '  A    lumber   flume,  2</j  by 3 feel, ���  was constructed for about 70 feet  and then the work was closed for  the season.  In 1904 the open, cut was continued until a depth of twenty feet  in the face was obtained, and all  surface water was controlled.  The pit was widened out and a  shaft sunk 27 feel lo bedrock, making a total depth of 47 feet from the  surface."       "-"  The gravel was carefully sluiced  with an average value of 32.2-5 per  cubic yard for the 27 feet of shaft;  while for S feet of the open cut  above the shaft the gravel will average values of $1 per cubic yard.  Great quantities of water were encountered in the shaft and it was  not until a 6 inch Cornish pump  with a four foot stroke, and driven  by an .8 fbjt overshot wheel, was installed that the water could be handled with any certainty, the shaft  making, by actual measurement,  2,040 gallons per hour.  A cross cut was driven 25 feet in  pay each side of the shaft without  encountering- either rim. '  The pay wash consists principally  of granite and diorite and is gray in  color. From the surface to 35 feet*  down the wash is heavy, with many  large boulders, but from that depth  to bedrock the boulders disappear  entirely.  The- gold is similar lo that of  Boulder, in fact the two creeks are;  very much alike in all respects with  the exception that there is on Ruby  creek an overflow of basalt from the  extinct volcano al its head.  The water iu Ruby varies from  500 inches at extreme low water to.  5,000 inches at high water.  The creek has an average grade  of from 7 to 10 per cent.  The Partnership workings start  within half a mile of Surprise lake,  which furnishes an ideal dump.  Quite a lot of work has been clone  further up stream by other parties,  and practically the same conditions  were encountered.  Ruby promises, with development, to'be a big gold producer, but  it will require a considerable outlay  to work on a large scale. ATLIN,    B.

The result of the Alberni election  demonstrates how public opinion  undergoes wonderful transformations. '  In the election of 1903 Governor  Mclnnes carried that constituency  under the Liberal flag with a majority of 21S votes out ot a total of  420.  In the late by-election Mr. Man-  son, the Conservative candidate,  changed- the order of things and  goes in with a majority of 66 with  three places to hear from,' making a  switch over of some 284 in favor of  the government.  This great change over, demonstrating as it does the people's faith  in the government and endorsing  the administration of the past two  years, must be most gratifying, especially when" it is'remembered that  two Liberal big guns left the session  at Ottawa to come and help fight  the campaign and that every effort  was made by the Liberal standard  bearers to hold the seat.   .  THE NEW STRIKE.  The news of a gold strike always  carries with it great excitement and  causes a desire in the breasts of  many, especially iu. those of that  restless class, the real frontiersman  ���who are always in the van���to  get there, and that quietly.  The news " of the find on Iron  Creek, just over our boundary, iu  the Yukon district has been no exception and already has started "the  rush, which gives promise of being  as large as any of recent years.  Atlin is supplying its quota to  swell the numljer.  This district, lying as it does in  the gold belt between Cassiar and  Klondike, and always looked upon  as a laud of promise, is practically  unexplored, only a few men having  been on any of its rivers or creeks.  Iron Creek is a tributary of and  about 90 miles up the Nisultin,  which flows into Teslin lake, and  the diggings are about 25 miles from  the main river.  The   three .ways of reaching the  Nisultin,   the  gateway to tlie gold  fields, are, up  the   Hootalinqua  to  Teslin    lake;   up   the  Stickeue   to  Telegraph   and   across   xo  Tcsliii;  and from Atlin lake across loTesiiu.  Looking   at   the   map the latter  way seems to  be  the   easiest   and  most practicable route,'especially fur  winter travel, Te.-din btlng some6.5  miles  a  Jittle east of the north end  of Atlin hike.    The .divide between  the two lakes is low,    the   country  open and level, and nt present there  are two trails.  A   small   expenditure of money  What Yukon's Member Said While  in Vancouver.  ��� While in Vancouver last week  Dr. Thompson, member for the  Yukon territory in the federal parliament, was interviewed and said:  "While I did not get  everything  I asked for, I secured some important concessions which I  think  will  be of immense benefit tothe Yukon.  "The   most   important   measure  passed was that providing for a subsidy for   a   preliminary survey for a  huge   system   ol"  hydraulic flumes  that will supply plenty of water for  'mining purposes to all the principal  claims   in   the  vicinity of Dawson.  This  survey is  already in progress  and will cost $15,000.   If the survey  reports that the scheme is feasible I  have assurances  that   the   Government  may either guarantee the interest on the bonds or else subsidize  the system at so much per mile.    It  will   be   a big undertaking in any  event���a project''that   will   require  between five and ten millions.  "An important change which I  was able to secure is the reduction  from $7.50 to $5 in- the price . of  miners' licenses. f.  "The alterations regarding the  size of placer claims will be po'pular  in the north. Instead of staking a  claim 250 feet in width fronting on  the stream, the miner may now locate a claim 500 feet wide,'running  back 2,000 feet.  "With regard to a northern  railway,   I   was   assured by Mr. John  Hendry,   president  of the V. W." &  Y. Railway, while he was .in Ottawa  recently, that his company intended  extending   the' line-up to Dawson  just   as   soon   as the   route of   the  Grand Trunk Pacific was definitely  settled.    Mr. Hendry stated that the  route of the V. W. & Y. would follow the valleys generally at  a short  distance   from   the coast.    He told  me I might promise  the. people  in  the north railway connection just as  soon as the surveys for the line could  be made and the  Grand Trunk Pacific  route,   connections and terminals, decided on A'  Why send out when you can out goods as ciihaj'.iii5ke?

Good Report of Iron Creek,  By a Dawson Merchant Who Went  to See for Himself.  James Rosenbeig, a well-known  Dau-.soii mei'chaul, tvho has just returned to Whitehorse from n visit  to Iron creek, brings the most intelligent- report yet made of the recently discovered gcld-beai.ing creel: in  Teslin district, and his news is  based, not on what he heard, but on  what he saw.  Mr. Rosenburg brought out with  him the result of two pans washed  out on discover}'claim, one of which  he panned himself, and the other he  saw panned by Rrewer, one of the  discoverers. The two pans yielded  between 20 and 30 cents, the gold  mostly being.coarse.  From 15 lo 18 men are now at  work on the creek where Rosenburg  says only a free expenditure of muscle is all that is necessary to prove  its value. He says Iron is one of  the most promising appearing  mining creeks he has ever seen;  that fully one-half Lhe boulders iu  it are highly mineralized, but that  it will require work to show its real'  worth.  A trail is now being cut from the  mouth of Sydney creek, where it  empties into the Nisutlin river to  discovery on Iron, a distance ot',20  miles, and it is over- this- trail- that,  provisions for next winter's opera-'-  tions will be packed.  On discovery claim Brewer,  Thompson, Anderson and Mee are.  doing much work. They have  made a big dam and changed the  channel of the creek and will operate in the former creek bed. Thompson is now at Livingstone creek to  size up the machinery and methods  employed by the N. C. company  there and will probably pattern after  them in working discovery.  Capt. Tom Smith, owner of the  steamer Quick, left here today with  ten tons of freight on a scow which  he will tow up the Hootalinqua and  to the mouth of Sydney creek by  way of Lake Teslin and the Nisutlin river.  Rosenburg reports game very  plentiful on' Iron creek, one man  having killed four caribou in cue  day.    Moose are also very plentiful.  The Yukon government will be  asked to assist in constructing a  trail to the new camp as at present  it is ,very hard lo get supplies into  the place where operations are being  conducted.���Whitehorse Star.
