Much Preliminary' Work Being-  Dono and Somo Excellent  Showinirs Made.  The Atliii district has now made  ���1 world-wide reputation for its auriferous ��ravcl deposit.s, and befoie  many years it will Jiave :i record  second to none as a hydraulic mining-disliicl Tlie extent and rieh-  iiess of these deposits have not yet  1 j'se 11 thoroughly estimated or proved,  yet the available territory can be  roughly put clown as not less than  1200 square miles.   '  Much of our space has been devoted to the auriferous "ravels of  the different creeks'of the distiict,  but little has hitherto been said regarding prospects of lode mining,-  yet quartz mining has prospects  -,,ol dreamed of by many of us. It  has been lb und well-nigh impossible  to obtain "reliable information on  the subject, and as the numerous  locations are' beyond our periodical rounds, we have been unable to  visit, thenr personally.r .\Ye would  now make an appeal to all miners'  who are interested in quart'/, properties in the district and who have  btcn working ou them to send us  from time to time notes of ihe work  done and the showings made, both  for theii own benefit and for that of  the camp as a whole. .Several  thousand dollar's worth 'of assessment work has been ,dO')r* between  last fali and tlie present lime, yet  we raiely hear anything about it-.or  of the results. However, what we  have heard justifies us in.stating  tliat the general results are most  giatifying, and in oi:e or two instances bodies A. lich.ore ha\e been]  exposed.  AVuh tlie shutting down of the  Mo-iue mountain mine, speculation was rife   as   to the cause of do-  r*.g -:ir..i-ll valuer in gold. The  ���sriler was shown ^'oiue lock (mm  vine of theie' claims a !V'w days p.s'O  and w.-if. plca-airably sunnised at the  pruuiisr.ig nalurc of the samples. Lt  would lie foolish 10 say tliat, under  present conditions, tlie most of this  galena ore would pay, but tlic.pio-  pfci-ty from wiiicli litis sample came  is extensive'enough, and the showing would-justify the installation of  a concentrator.  On some of the iVce-gold bearing  piopertics, the use of an arrasta  _-ould undoubtedly be adopted with  profitable results.  It is fully anticipated that most  sa'ii-faclory arrangements may this  A.-ar be made w'itli tlie White Pass  Railway Company for the transportation of liial shipments of ore to  iht- ���mieltei's on the Sound, and, as  mt-.cii work has beeii done on the  mo--,i p-oniising properties, it should  not be a difficult matter for " the  miners to make up among them a  tiial shipment of, say, ten tons.  In conclusion, we may be pardoned for saying that in many instances work has been done by men  without having from time to time  had'assays made of their rock, and  we regret to say thai'much valuable  time and money have thereby been  wasted on worthless ground. What  may b^ said of. the inexperience of  lots of placer miners may equally be  said oi would-be' quartz miners.  1-rom the failure in cases such as  these much of the evil report on j  ihis branch oi mining lias arisen, lo  the great loss o( the camp. The  field of -lode mining in Atlin is still  in it-, infantile stage, though in very  ���many instances vthe "bairns" have  tlie indications of making big,  strong iiitn, il such a simile may be  excused.

Saturday,   Junk ist,   190;  Win i.i'      hydraulic    mining     is  ��� naturally   attracting   much    attention   in   the ��� development   of   the  camp, it has for  the most part been  a matter for companies only to take  up, because of the  amount of capital   involved   in   the installation of  plants,   flumes,'   ditches,   tail-races,  etc., and it is one that men of small  means could   not'   take   up  single-  handed.  ��� Yet   there   is a way open  for level-headed miners to carry out  the . principle   in a limited   degree.  An article appeared   in our issue of  February i6th last, under the heading  of " Booming with a Shooter,"  dealing with the subject in hand al  considerable length.    Since the appearance   of   this   article we have  obtained  the  opinion of several old  miners who   have  seen  the boomer  in    actual   operation,     added      to  those   opinions the practical results  of one  actually in operation iii this  district,   the   consensus  of opinion  is that   a    well constructed   boomer will   pay for its construction in a  week.    The one on Alder creek has  a capacity of   3000   gallons, giving  24 splashes or flushes a clay, in low  water and   the  work   it has accomplished, even with   five feet of snow  to wash out, is almost  beyond conception.    A   boomer  is   being cons'ructed   on    the   Stevcndyke property    with   a   capacity   of 10,000  gallons and great   results are anticipated.    The   object   i--,  that where  water is scarce, by the use of a storage tank, so constructed that it can  be used   either  to  supply a steady  flow of water under  pressure or to  automically   flush   its contents into  the    lead-boxes    is,    obtained    for  ground-sluicing,    with   such    force  that nothing   can resist'the  rush,  ft   is   easy   of construction, and   a !  little thought  given to  the boomer  will soon satisfy one as lo its utility  and effectiveness.-  can    buy    the    ' Con' Virginia and  make something out of it."  ''How much do you want, John?"  said Flood.  "Eighty thousand dollars."  The deal was closed on the spot.  The history of the ' Con ' Virginia  is as well known, almost, as the  story of Washington and the cherry  tree. Before the four miners struck  the "lead" they had exhausted  their money and their credit. There  seemed 'o be 'nothing in the rock"  they brought ont of the ��� earth.  Other, miners met them day after  clay and laughed at their apparently  hopeless task. They were jeered  and made, fun of. But they kept  serious faces and sober minds, and  were hot lo be thwarted by the idle  talk of idlers.  One morning when the prospect  seemed blackest, a friend said to  Mackay:  ''John, luck has gone against  you: why don't you quit and go  prospecting?"  ," .The man who figures ou luck  in mining," .said Mackay, " is a  fool; the man who figures ou doing  a lot of-hard-.-work and - not losing  his grit will get something."  The   four   partners   did not lose  their grit, nor did they rely on luck.  One  afternoon _ the  rumour spread  over   Virginia City  that the'Con'  Virginia men had   struck a body of  ore.     It   spread   as ��� wildfire  often  swept   over   the   Nevada   prairies.  The   four   men   left   their mine at  sundown and walked down C street  amid a babal of cheers.    The .next  morning   the Consolidated Virginia  stock   had   gone   from'80 cents-to  5256a share, and in another day to  $500 a share.     In three days it was  announced   thai   the   body of rock  was   so large   that   its value could  not   be   estimated.   . In   two weeks  the United   Stales Government was  negotiating   with   the owners of the  mine for   the   redemption of bonds  whose   value   had been affected by  the civil war.    In   two   months the  financial   centers of Europe had felt  the shock, and about the same time  Mackay,' Flood,   Fair   ai.d v.0 Brieii  were   able   to   announce that they  were millionaires beyond the dreams  of avarice.

They had saved some money altera  few years of trading wilh the  miners, were ready for a deal in  one of the mines, and had faith in  iVlaekay and Fair.

However, the old saying, " every little  helps," and we are furnished w;th  a synopsis this week, which, it is  hoped, will be followed up by something more substantial right along  during the season.   .  A great deal of work has been  done ou this creek during the winter, particularly from 89 to 1 '.-j below, and" the results have been foi  the most part satisfactory, in .-oine  instances away ab.we expectation,  hi the uniting work carried ou by  l'iicey, McNieoll and others the  winter's work has been very profitable, till " the way from )4 an ounce  to live ounces per day to the man  having been taken out.'

In- the group of creek leases  applied for by Rufiher and partners  above the mouth ol .Spruce, Mr.  French has some men prospecting  the ground and has been much  pleased as well as surprised with  the prospects obtai. ed just above  the canyon. It is more than likely  that Mr.- Ruffncr's contemplated  drilling plant will be'brought in  find the prospecting of this ground  thoroughly and systematically carried on dining the summer.  Muirhead Brothers, who have  been working all winter with fair  results, have now ground-sluiced  quite a piece of their ground in the  neighborhood of CS4 and the prospects ol good pay are in sight.

Hitherto these  men have done well and their prosr  peels were never brighter; they begin sluicing next week.
