To the Editor of The Atlin Clmm:
, ,Dear vSir.-—I visited Otter greek

Carmichael, . Steinmetz et al doing
noble work. This property, though
given1 a. black'eye By'the "great"
promoters of-the 'British' Ameiican
Dredging Co. who, by their'infantile
"methods," almost*'discouraged even
the men who worked on' lhe Otter
creek proposition' fro'tri ever attempting, to' do anything in-the way of
'moving'gravel'or1 obtaining "gold
which had, by the staying qualities
of Mr. Carmichael arid his associates, been proven to exist. * ,,,>
'Now, oh i the' portion of' Otter
creek " where Messrs. Mo'ran - and
Carmichael are at preserrt working,
they know from previous ! tests iu
the -way of tunnels,'&c.', that gold
exists", iri"pajdng quantities. 'The

present in charge is using common

that you can sluice more' payi gravel

The operators on Otter cieek have
moved ten times more gravel to the
number of'meri employed than any
other hydraulic operating in the
camp,, even although the pay dirt is
harder, or- at .least as hard, as on
McKee." From"indications' I have

The question  of keeping%a man  in jail without giving him the right  to immediately apply to the courts  for   a  discharge by habeas corpus  arose here last year,' and again this'  year.    Under the present procedure  the nearest court to which a   man  can apply is the Supreme Court at  Vancouver or Victoria, and would  take at least 14 days before he could  obtain his release���which in many  instances   would   be  ruinous to a  business man.     The Bar Association, backed up by the local bench  and by the representative of the district, laid the matter before the proper authorities last season and   yet  the evil still continues.    In districts  such  as our own,*and where delay  is caused by the absence of Supreme  Court judges,   power   should . be  given to judges of the County Court  to hear and determine all   applications for habeas corpus and other  proceedings affecting the liberty ,of  the subject.  THAT MIS-FIT PARDON.  The recent pardoning of Brothier  by the Dominion Government , has  caused, and rightly too, great indignation on the part of the public of  Canada, and especially so in British  Columbia.  A feeling of loathing and disgust  is necessarily generated against a  man guilty of the crime ot which  Brothier was convicted���a crime  which brands him as a human mon-  ster, a vampire and a fit citizen of  the regions beyond.  In the present case, there could  not possibly be any extenuating circumstances in this criminal's favor.  He was comparatively a wealthy  man, with many thousands of dollars to his credit in the bank, and  was reported to have a more than  average education, but, with all  this, hesitated not to add to his ill  gotten gains through the sacrifice of  his own 'flesh arid blood.  Reasons only of the gravest kind  should influence a government (it  matters not its political beliefs) in  pardoning such an aggravated offence������reasons so grave should be  of a public nature, publically announced.  It is unfortunate that the man is  a Frenchman, as it gives rise to a  feeling' that his nationality and religion are in a great measure responsible for the apparently ill-advised action of the government.  Until the government have had  .an opportunity of giving a lucid  explanation of its action, we do riot  feel justified in too strongly condemning them. Still, we feel that  a mistake has been made in turning (  a worse than, ghoul on the public.    (  Coroner's Jury Gave^ Verdict of  Death From Natural Causes--  The Funeral Well Attended^  ,When driving across Tar Flats  shortly after 3 p.m. on Saturday  last Malcolm Ross, driver for G. A.'  Kerr & Co., Discovery,' discovered  the lifeless body of Mrs. Charlotte  Till lying on the' road. Mr. Ross  immediately returned to Discovery  and made known the fact and Dr.  Young was telephoned for. When  found, the body was still warm.  Dr. Young * arrived on the scene  about 4.45 o'clock but the deceased  was beyond medical aid and he  found life extinct. ���  Coroner H. Young was notified  and on Monday he held an inquest  on the remains with the following  as jurors: John Dunham, foreman;  J. F. Gibson, J. F. Breeze, M. R.  Jamieson, V. Trotman and Paul  Eggert.    ,   ' ,  The following, witnesses were examined: L. B. Harris, A. B. P.  Thomas, M. Ross, W. H. Vickers,  W. Till and Dr. Young; After being out ,for,-some time the jury returned a verdict that the deceased  came "to her death from natural  causes, direct cause unknown.  The deceased, who was 39 years  of age, leaves" to mourn her loss a  sister, Mrs. R. Findlay, of New  Westminster, B. C, and her hus^  band, W. Till, of Spruce Creek,  Atlin District, who ' has the' sympathy of - the entire' community in  his sad bereavement.  The funeral, which took place on  Wednesday morning, was attended  by a large number of citizens. Rev.  A. -M.- Ross officiated and the pallbearers were: Geo.. CasselJs,^ V.

You may remember that.,His  Honor and the members of the bar  here took up the question with you  of giving jurisdiction to His Honor  Judge Young iu application' for  writs of habeas corpus very shortly  after his appointment-to this county,  aud ever since that date the government, through you, has promised to  Slave this evil remedied.  , I am sure that now the occasion  has arisen when a citi/en demands  the rights of habeas corpus that you  will urge upon the'goverrimeut that  something be done to give the people the rights which, the constitution demands.  '  I need hardly urge upon you  the  propriety of this application.  ' -~   Yours truly',- - _  .~E. M.-N. Woods.  Atlin, B.C., June 13th, 1906.  "Atliu, June T3tb, *oS.���To the  Hon. Attorney General, Victoria:  One, Henry Garneau, now in jail;  held illegally; no way of imoving for  habeas corpus. This -state >��f affairs  ���causi��gf:gfeat scandal.

Shortly after receiving the above  -communication Dr. Young telegraphed the authorities as follows:  1    Woes  That   Men   Endure.  - The average woman seldom hears  anything about the appalling canni-i  balism of the struggle for life and.  money. From the cradJle to the'  grave she is much in the position of  a man who has a fixed and certain  income over and beyond that he acquires by his'own efforts.- The  actual battle 'for supremacy never*,  comes* directly home to 'her. Women are prone to, underestimate the  terrors of this homicidal strife. They  look- ���upon'-' a man in business as a  being who achieves'' large profits  ���from "small exertions, and entirely  escapes the' dull, plodding routine"  of'housekeeping and children rearing that they must face. As a matter of fact, the average "man, whether he be a bank president or a  day laborer, spends niue-tenths of  his time performing drudgery of the  most .'depressing sort/ It=is a rare  moment when he is not compelled  to do something that" he -doesn't  want .to'do?- It's a moment "rarer,  still when he does not find himself  in conflict with the aims or ambitions of some other man. , .

K$0<Z��  KS>  -II  SINCE the 3ist of Octember, a  young man about 182'years'of  age of a very tall complexion, hair  straight, curly teeth and'yellovv eyes.  He had on a maccaroui'coat trim-'  med with sawdust," a white slop>  made of yellow flannel, green calico  trousers lined with cod liver oil.  Wellington boots laced up behind.  He had a barber's pole iu one hand  and a wooden carpet., bag- in the  other, consisting of a rat trap and a  petrified coal "heaver, - and he was  last seen crossing Atlin Lake with  his legs tied in a knot and his head  under his arm, singing "Au Revoir"  through his npse. It appears he  met a superannuated body snatcher,  who 'struck him in the stomach  with a pork sausage, causing him  to have an attack of the collywobbles, and an old lady who witnessed  the above outrage was so horrified  that she fell down and struck her  head against a feather bolster, causing a wound four feet deep, which  bled so much that it washed au elephant into a ditch aud drowned a  dog that wasn't there.  Whoever will give such information to his afflicted parents will be  kindly rewarded with a tripe medal.  His father earns his living by carrying treacle in a sack, being his only  means of subsistence. You can't  mistake the above party when you  see him, he walks stooping upright,  caused through swallowing a youug  bicycle when he was a baby.
