' The  demon of jealousy was aroused arrd  the blood of Irish kings surged back*  and forth in Patrick's pumping station. Gadzooksi I'll have his gore!  In up-to-date parlance meaning���  I'll knock his block off. Such  twicked .throughts . ran riot in his  head. He backed away up the hillf  ancl then returned orr the run charging full tilt at-the door. He carried  everything before him. Once inside he proceeded in true Donny-  brook style to put Baker out of  commission. This did rrot suit the  Britisher, who repulsed the intruder  by giving him the ju jitsu'landiug  hiui -gently on lhe couch. They  exchanged a few courteous remarks  and then activities were resumed by  Patrick trying to kick in his oppou-  face. I-Ie struggled desperately but  Baker proved too much for him  getting- the decision irr the second  round. Mrs. Callaghan had in the  meantime gone for reinforcements,  who arrived in" time to see Baker  sitting astride the prostrate form of  the belligerent husband.

Cui.ltn.  12 DI TO H-M A N A G Kit  The Gold..Fields of Atlin.  -The Atlin Gold Fields occupy the  extreme northwest corner of British  Columbia, Canada; lying between  latitudes 59 and 60, ancl extending  from longitude 132 to 134-30 west  of Greenwich, iir all an area of 6,000  ��� square miles.  Its comprises within its boundaries the whole drainage basin of Atlin lake, together with the adjacent  ���country to the east draining into  Tesiin lake; arrd that' to the west  tributary of the Taku Arm of Tag-  ish lake: a mineralized zone of unrivalled possibilities in the very  heart of the northern continental  Gold Range, and situated midway  between the famous placers of tire  Klondike and those of no less famous Cariboo, both of which it rivals  in richness.  Eight years of continual prospecting ancl  development work in this  rich district, in place of exhausting  its placer fields, as has been the case  wilh so many of the  world's  gold-  fields,   has  only served to bring to  light new and more profitable areas  of auriferous gravels of so uniformly increasing value that  the output  of placer gold from this district during  the  past  eight years has been  one of upward progression.     That  it occupies   so   unique a position irr  the history of the mining industry  seems  due  to the extreme variability of its resources, for here hydraulic and dredging ground of superior  adaptability exists side by side with  shallow placers of unusual richness,  all offering remunerative returns to  judicious development. .  The general elevation of the lower lake ancl valley system comprising the lakes Bennet, Tagish, Taku  Ann and Atlin lake is about 2,206  feet above sea level. The highest  peaks of lire district do not exceed  7,000 above sea level.  Generally speaking? the mountain tops are from 5,000,to 6,500  fec-t above the sea, Contrasted with  the rugged granitic barrier of the  Coast range the''district offers easy,  exploration. The upper portions of  the mountains above limber line are  grassy and open, without, as a rule,  much obstruction to travelling. Extensive slopes and wide valleys are  scantily timbered with bauksi.an  pine, spruce and balsam.  Pine creek may be said to be lhe  principal gold bearing stream cast of  Atlin lake, as having precedence of  creeks discovered later. Il drains  Surprise lake, and has a length of  eleven miles wilh a fall of about S30  1 c  feel. There are many streams tributary to Surprise lake and Pine  creek, lhe chief being Birch, Boulder, Ruby, Wright, Otter ancl Spruce  all of these carry more or-lcrss placer-  gold. The valley of Pine creek is  high and broad and has many terraces.  Farther south is McKee creek,  arrd the'new system recently opened  up in the Dixie valley, comprising  Wilson, Bull, Fox aird Dixie, all  tributary lo O'Dounell river, which  empties into Atlin lake about six-,  teen miles south of Atlin. 'The extensive valley of O'Donrrell river  affords great opportunities for prospecting ancl is the centreof au entirely new system of mining operations.  The mineral resources of the Atlin   goldfields   are   as  extensive as  they are varied.     Slrorrg,   well defined   ledges  arrd   large deposits  of  Iree-milhng   and   other ores abound  throughout   the   district;   these,   irr  marry instances have been found to  carry   high   values in gold, silver,  copper and other metals; 'arid many  hundreds of clacims have been located   during   the   past   few years in  different parts   of the   district.    On  the. majority of these claims development  work  has  been   rather slow,  due   probably   to  want  of  proper  facilities in  the  district for treating  the  various  kinds  ol" ores, also to  heavy   transportation   rates   arrd  to  insufficient capital oir the part of the  owners of these claims,   rather from  want of merit in the property themselves.    Extensive  deposits of free  milling   gold   bearing   quartz   are  known to exist in  various parts  of  the great Pine creek  valley aud tributary   localities,   at   the southern  end  of Atlin lake, aud around the  different  branches of   Taku  Arm,  whilst    the   numerous   discoveiies  would seem to  show  that those regions are still imperfectly prospected.     Large  deposits of copper ore  are in evidence at the south end of  the lake and iu Torey inlet..  The improving conditions with  respect to transportation rates and  the gradual cheapening of food-stuff  are all in lavor of increased development in this branch of mining, A  splendid field is here open to the  experienced prospector, and grand  opportunities are offered for the  profitable investment of capital.  Official reports and maps have  been compiled of the district, ancl  may be obtained on application to  the Geological Survey of Canada,  Ottawa.-  The  climate of Atlin is reuiark-  ���"V*-*>��'.#bl��*^ir->*��>**'-M'-^  IN., -C.

Garden vegetable-- of the  hardier kinds grow well.  Tlie forest growth is rather light.  It is principally composed of the  white   spruce,   banksian   pine,   and  . balsam. White spruce is found in  damp valleys aud on stream deltas.  Banksian pine clothes the  dry vul-  , leys, low slopes and terraces up to  4,000 in some places above the sea.  Balsam fir occupies the rougher,  rocky ground near the li tuber line  up to 5,000 feet above the sea in  1 a few places. Cottonwood occurs  commonly at the mouths ol streams.  White poplar ' is fairly common on  flat--, and low hills. The native  fruils found most abundantly to-,  wards Tesiin lake, are: raspberry,  black aird red currant, gooseberry,  and cranberries.      i v  The country in the Atlin,.Tesiin,  and Bennett districts affords un-  limiied opportuniiies to the sportsman and" tourists. It is beyond dispute that in these unmolested tracts  of mouutairr, valley and lake, there  is one of the finest game belts to be  found in Northern Canada. Pish,  birds, large, and small game and  fur-bearing animals abound and are  even found within easy reach of the  town of Atlin; at no time rreed the  ��� sportsman be beyond the reach of  telegraphic communication with the  outside world. On the Pacific watershed the rainbow trout, malma,  salmon and grayling are fouird;  while irr the lakes arrd streams 011  the Yukon slope pike, namayeush,  grayling. whitefish ancl cisco  abound. The namayeush, or lake  trout, are often taken with the fly  or spoon and afford great sport.  They attain great weight, varying  from five to thirty-five pounds.  Amongst the land game birds are  the ruffled grouse, foolhen, or  Franklin grcuse, and three varieties  of ptarmigan. Ducks, geese, swan,  plover and snipe are visitors to this  district \vhen migrating to and from  their breeding grounds. The moose  has his permanent home in the  wooded valleys and mountain  slopes. Everywhere signs of his  presence are to be found, but except  in the rutting season or when pursued in the deep snows, he is most  wary and difficult to hunt. Bear-  black and brown, roam the-whole  district, but are more numerous in  the. Nakina ancl Tesiin localities,  and at the south end of Atlin lake  'around the glacier. Other fur-bearing animals found are the lynx,  wolf, wolverine, otter, fox, (red,  black, cross aud silver gray), marten, arrd ermine. Goat and mountain sheep abound on the mountain  ranges; of the latter there are two  . species found in the dislrict, the  Ovis  Far.nini  ard   the Ovis Dalli.  The flesh .of the mountain sheep is  equal in flavor to that of lire best  mutton of the domestic, sheep.  Facilities are.al hand in Atlin for  outfitting hunters, and guides aud  pack animals are procurable at very  reasonable rales.  Hon. Clifford Sifton, ex-minister  ol" tlie interior, who was in England  iu connection with the fast steamship service has returned. Asked  lor his views on the proposed steamship service orr the Atlantic  and Pacific. "The idea," said Mr.  Sifton, "is for a twenty-four or  twenty-five knot service on the  Atlantic, with improved railway  facilities across Canada, and an  eighteen knot service from Vancouver to China and . Japan. Lord  Strathcona will control the financial  arrangements. His high position  and financial standing in London  will render valuable assistance. If  carried into effect the project will be  of vast benefit to , the co-operating  parlies, arrd especially to lhe Dominion of Cairada. ' Every province  from the Atlantic lo the Pacific will  be benefited. It will place Canada  on the 'main' commercial highway  of the ' world, and will introduce  capital ancl new industries, the extent of which at the present time no  one can forsee. The present lime  is opportune for a gigantic undertaking of this character."  1 Lowney's    Chocolates     arriving  constantly at C. R. Bourne's.  NOTICE.

Former Governor Udell is backing  the present incumbent, Governor  Hughes, for the presidency, and.doing his best to ;viu New "York over  to thai side. ' Newspaper reports  say that it is a life and death  struggle.  Brigadier T. Howell, oi Toronto,  secretary of the immigration and  transportation departments of the  Salvation of Canada, in an interview recently said: "This year so  far we have landed 10,000, and  have six ships chartered, five of  which have landed their fust batch  cf passengers, and the sixth one is  expected lo arrive on the Sth of this  month. We expect to place another 10,000 before the season closes,  ancl in fact the number is only limited by the lack of accommodation.  What do I mean by that? Why the  steamers that we have chartered are  not sufficient to carry the people,  and we have already secured all the  available space on the C. P. R.  boats, the Allen liners, and lhe regular Dominion ships, but, even  wilh this the accommodation is not  sufficient.- If we had more facilities  lor transportating the people we  could by now have landed 15,000,  and before the season cIos-js aud bad  weather begins could have landed  fully 25,000 souls iu Canada.
