It is now ou exhibition at the North;  ern Hotel aud Mr. Tlmgar'd says hundreds  of, people have seen it during the last few-  days. 'Tlie lump'w eighs 18 ounces 16 pennyweights and w as taken put of Mr. Campbell's,  claim, on Pine, above Discovery. Mr. Campbell w as out prospecting hia ground with a  lonely pick. He left his pan behind; he cer-  taiuly did not need it for the prize he turned  over with his long-handled, weapon. Men  -were standing on the opposite side and saw  the lucky miner at^ work.' Presently they  saw him jump skyward and then fall back  into a lower level, meanwhile clutching the  golden tuber with the grip of amuugoing  under the water for the last time. "Great  Heavens," lie said, as some men approached,  "what may a fellow expect'out of I Pine  Creek anyway?1*0 He didn't'eat any supper  that night, but-went on prospecting. Of  course they were not 13 ounce nuggets, but  they demonstrated that Pine" Creek is rich  bej ond the waiUiigs of some 'soreheads w ho*  hold the opposite contention. Let "-these  chronic ^barnacles goJ out to salt water and  wash off their incrustation. If they do, then  let them come in again; if not, put a tux on'  them and kocp theraout.  - It is the hardest kind of w ork to get at anything like authentic information of the output of gold from the various creeks' for' the  simple reason that a miner who owns a claim  is afraid of the boots lie stands iu less'some  of the professional* jumpers -who lurk  around trying to find out by actual observation the richness of the soil and'w hatever  fractions there, may be.

Fansw-orth, u Skaguay merchant, and Chief of the Arctic Brotherhood,  is the first arrival from the outside. His  left hand show s the signs of u slide on a ragged edge aud blood was oozing from it as  he w as making ready to leave the Northern  Hotel on tho 2 o'ocloek stage Thursday for  Discovery.  "I left Skaguay two/weeks ago and was  among the lust to leave," he started   out.  "The finish, you see, is tho other way.   From  Log Cabin to Tepee it tdok 24 hours.   Here  I met the regular mail carrier and he throw-  up the job disgusted.     Big Jack and George  Davis took up the work and as a rosult jou  have    the    mail   at   Taku    to-day.    After  leaving  Tepee   we  spent a day building a  bridge and then made for the'head of. Otter  Luke.   Sere "George Du vis and mj self ware  taking all kinds of chances on our lives.   He  fell iu three times aud so did I.    The dearest  friends we had were the skis.     They kept  us from taking the short route to heaven.  We then abandoned the lake and took over  the mouutuius.   This landed us at Mrs. Mini-  sou's.    Half u  mile above ^this  we  met a  freighter by   the   name   of   Smith. He was  about 300 yurds out on the rotten ice aud so  exhausted was he aud   his doir.s that  they  could hardly move.   When w e iirst came to  him he shouted 'Come out and save mo soon  or I'll drown.'   We couldn't go.   And right  here let me tell you something about dogs  and  whut sense   they have.   Frank  Goyne  took throe of the dogs off his team, went  to the edge of the lake, pointed the leuder to  w hero the man and his team were aud they  started out to the rescue.   The freighter's  dogs    could    hardly   walk.       Smith   after  reaching shore   fainted and  it took  three  hours to bring him to.   His legs and hands  were as raw as any beefsteak you ever saw.  "Next morning  an   old   man started  out  from Otter Lake and was drow ned where I  fell in.   Between SQ0 or 400 people are camped  in the neighborhood.   The unfortunate man  has a sou working at Tukn.   Tho next day  w e saw two men on a raft iu a hollow and at  1 o'clock the raft disappeared.   Undoubtedly  they    both   perished.     Several    hats   and  throe or four  abandoned  sleds were seen  on the way.   It is perfectly s<ife to say that  from lr> to 20 people huve perished.   Big Jack  and George Davis are now at Taku with six  bags of mail. Both boys aro physical w recks  und deserve more than tho thanks   of the  community.  I came ucross in a boat maimed  The Charity Wheel Thrown Out, for  ,y   ' - Blackjack.  The second charity ball was not the success  the first one wus,  und .the deplorable incident li.is'had the effect of segregating  the  membership iu so just a cause, i. e., the raisin; of funds lor the needy sick  of  Atlin.   '  Like the iirst one. the dance took pluce iu  Rice A Hastie's hull, and it is most likely it  will be the last. 0The hrst night, they had a  wouth.er-boat.ju, old-fashioned und churchlike'looking   wheel,   aud relieved most of  the-plajers   of ..their   change.   The second'  ball, how ever, wus different iu many respects..  -���"I^wus not allow ed to run the wheel," said   v  one of the ladies,  as she called tho writer    '  ucross tho street, "because I made'too much  money the first night." *      , ->  "Hoiiv w"as that; did tho othor'ladios object?" . '       i  "No; not olL I'll tell you the whole trouble.  I was sick that dav, and didn't cure to go. -'  Some folks came down that afternoon and  begged me to go.'I finally consented and  took my wheel along. I just had it iu place  when I was informed that the wheel could  not he run because it interfered" with the  blackjack game running in the back room.  I asked who hud said so und wus informed  thut the management of the hotel issued  the order. I picked up and left. That's  the story of the charity bull and blackjack  game." '       "    *,  "Were you running a brace game?"  > ''I   was  running the .wheel   aud I don't  know the other game."  Here is a. case for the Commissioner and  these places should be sealed up tighter  than a drum. ~ Now is the time to deal the  blow ; not wait till all the toughs iu Skaguy  come this way.

Finally   Appeal   to  Heaven  for  Another for This Abused Town.  Was there ever enacted such an unjust  law iu tho annuls of the British Empire  as the Alien law? Whore? From the timo  tin miners where imported into England to  the development of the Kootenays 'no parallel cau be turned up whereby the Union  ���Tuck was so humiliated as it has been iu  this province. The drum that beats tatoo  around the world und nurses to sleep the  freest born people on the human pedestal  will not echo the Alien law. This law must  die, and die it must. The government that  sells a man a license for one jeur and at tho  expiration of a month or so turns round  aud deprives him ot the right he purchased  is piratical, aud cannot sail the sea of public  opinion.  ��� Wo have men in our district to-day by the  thousand who purchased liceuseslast fall before a good and enterprising people wero  barred entrance. A goodly number of these  men took to the hills aud to-day a few may  be ssen wending their way to Atlin. Some  of them with finds. At the record office they  are asked if they are British subjects. If he  denies his birthright ho can record, otherwise he cannot. The price of the license is  a flee-bite to the cost entailed by these men  in prospecting aud hunting for mouths and  then come back to find that their labor has  been iii vain. The cost of outfitting a prospector is better know n iu a mining camp  than in a city, and the hardships entailed are  also better known.  Is this a just law?  snts  Trainor street is out for improve -as  and Dr. Boyle is at th-* hea I of it.

Months  ago,   during the  session of the legislature, provision  was made for a judicial investigation and decision of disputes���still  no functionary of the law" has arrived for that purpose,' and no information is'vouchsafed as to when  he will arrive. The delay is shameful  it  is  criminal.   - This   delay  is  mulcting the people ' of the district  thousands bf dollars ai day for the  mere cost of living  alone, to say  nothing- of  the, loss  of time and  other expenditures.  , Yet meantime we see the officials  of the government throughout the  district displaying the marvellous --  we might almost' say merciless���  activity in thecollcctionof revenues.  On this point the officials here have  bc-en instructed from Victoria in  terms evidently that could not possibly be misunderstood. The/pound  of flesh is being exacted with a  sanguinary ferocity that seems unappeasable.

Tie will  necessarily be ignorant of the conditions as they'exist. He will need  the, advice and counsel of the best  informed aud wisest of our citizens,  aud with that object in view_ concerted action should be ,taken, .We  have this suggestion1 tojmake.'that  a public meeting should-be'called to  discuss the situation generally, and  after a free interchange 'of opinion  has been held, a committee should  be* appointed to draw up in a formal manner a presentment to the  judge one his arrival of-*the whole  situation, together with such suggestions for the guidance' or enlightenment of the judge as wisdom  may suggest:' The main object is  to have the disputes settled as speedily as possible, so that the hundreds  of men now idling away their time  here may get to'work.

Her proclivities for investigation are said to be unbounded and w ell known to Kootenay miners.  For some time she was connected with -the'  land der*i'traent of the Northern Racific and  and Great Northern Railway companies, and  rendered valuable assistance) to tho last  named road in securing a right of way-  through the state of Washington. Mrs.  Houghton is noted for hor business qualities, a polished use'of tha Queen's English  aud an uusurpassed capability for work in  tnc mining business.Dunn j the five years lust  past she has been'associated with Mr. A. G.  Brow idee iu the mining business, the firm ot  Brownlee & Houghton, having their main  oifices iu the Mari.'iiette building. Chicago,  with branches or connections in various-  parts of Colorado, Utah, California, Oregon,  Washington, Idaho, Montana and British  Columbia. ��.  At present Mrs. Houghton is in California  closing the purchase of the Schroeder Consolidated group of quartz mines which Mr.  Brow nlee und Horuce V. Winchell; M.
