THAT RESOLUTION.   * '
Editor Claim:
Sir,—In the last is-ue of" jou
paper appeared an anoi.ymou*
com niu 1 ication, re a certain resolution which was passed at_ the last
regular meeting of the Atlin District Board ef-Trade, in reply- to a
communication from the B.--C.
Boarfr of jTralle,? .Victoria, "Bj. G.,
with reference to certain allegations
re Stipendiary   Magistrate  Woods.
While I" think' the" Board of
Trade will probably .treat .the matter with lhe. silent contempt that
anonymous communications almost
ii variably -merit, I feel constrained
to notice it sufficiently, to correct
some* erroneous ideas that may
•therwise result from' its publication. In the first place, I wish to
say that .the vxriter took an unwarranted" libem jr publishing that,
or any' resolution 'of -the board
without -its Mincf.oii, for -whilethat
"bo<h " hfi.«. nothing (to* fear from
lhe publication of anyof its proceed-^
ings, which,"for'the''le»grb of^ time',
it has'bee'"1' in existence, will com-
i, are ia\oiably lor digrity of procedure arc! useful and .effective
work, vith those of like 'or other
organizations am where, yet it is
rot a»m1iii"cir*Hl-nor,el*?fcti\<- "bod\"
whose .,roceediiigs n*a> be cunsider-
'ed yifiblic-probert\ as?a matter of
coi.r<-e. Ag«i.n, while its functions
are to deal with all matter1* aiTeet-
ing^the .welfare of the-district, Ut
does 1 ot undertake to adjudicate in
purely perioral matters unless at
the request of-son e of its "members,' nor does it piesuni*.- to sit in
judgment on goveri meut officidls
V" bo.ixie lesponsible 10 government-.
a1 departmei'ts, U> v. hich they oy. e
their official ex;stence? 'and bcfoie
which all charges of malfeasance
should be preferred, unless, or until, their officiaji conduct becomes a
menace to the welfare of the community or district and said "de^,
partments" reglect or refuse to deal
with preferred charges.   ■ '. 1
In view of these-explanations,
Mr. Editor, I think you will agree
with me, ( that the board' acjled
wisely in refusing to consider the
case in.'question' until-it 'had' been
dealt' with an some form --by the
proper constitutional Authority, but
was quite within its rights in making "any" "statement of facts" as
to its cognizance of  "petitions"  or
"charges" and that'-without being
either "ludicrous"i,or.guilty of; in-,
justice to anybody.' ' }
Regretting the necessity, for 'auj-;
txpression of opinion on -such^tnat-i
ters, but "thanking you for tHe'^op--
portuhity of doing so'"in- the''columns of your valuable-paper/Lam,'

THE DOUBLE CELEBRATION.

the most praiseworthy 'unanimity,
Canadia >s ""and "Americans,""have
agreed to pool their^issues and hon~
or Dominion Day and the Glorious
Fourth of July in one 'monster celebration' on . Saturday, '30th June.
Hands have'been dipped into purses freely, both by John Canucks
and,Uncle Sam's boys, with the'result that the financial aspect,of,,the
case is strorig'Jndeed.' A whole day
of outdoor sports -. will be had,-.including _ horse-races, football,'footraces,  jumping, hammer-throwing,
etc.    'The little ones have not been

orgotten either, as ihere are several prizes set apart for their especial benefit.' The "piece de resistance" of the'day will probably be
the international tug-of-war, for
which si prize of $100 is offered. A
nice piece of ground isbeing cleared at the westei.d of the town and
the streets put in order. In, the
evening a grand.ball will finish , up
the'day's proceedings at .the Nugget Hotel hall, which' has been
handsomely decorated for'the occasion. ?,'

A ROAD TO.BIG" SALMON.
C. D.' Newton Thinks the Board of
'   Trade Should Take  the  Matter
;. up-:	
Mr. C. D. Newton," the well-
■known enterprisiug' merchant of

apparently had little or no idea of

'ca'pitalists-and intending investors,
by whom it is looked upon, 'as .by

Many*of these   people will soon'put
in an appearance to judge for them- '
selves.    Amongst   the  first  to 'arrive will  be   Messrs'.   Skinner ' and .
Dunn, who already  have  interests
in   the  Caledonia   group? "and "are;
prepaied to add heavily "to their itf-*
vestments. - •   -    ..       .    .    x

We are pleased to notic��  in   our  midst quite a   few  capitalists'   and  their ..representatives,   seeking  for  th* .profitable .employment  of capital, in  developing our mineral  resources.     This is as it ought to be,  and we trust   that   every   facility  will be extended them   for   investigation.      The  camp  is   now  at   a  most  critical   stage of its existence,  aitd;   if outside influences  can   He  brought to  .bear,   then   all   is   well  with our future.    Que of the greatest drawbacks a new -mining  camp  has to endure, is  laid on   it by  its  foolish   well-wishers.    We in Atlin  are suffering   now  from  the same  people.     Scarcely-a paper comes in  from the outside but contains interviews    with   travelling  representatives    from    this    camp, ��� who  invariably  "paint  the lily, and  gild  refined gold."    . They mean well in  . their silly way, but they   raise  anticipations so high, that   when   the  reality, however good,   presents  itself    to  the   would-be  investor,   a  sense  of   bitter  disappointment  is  the sure result, and the'visitors feel  that . to. a certain extent an attempt  has been made  to   "bunco"  them.  If our. mineral resources are  good  enough,to'attract capital,  let  them  stand on their merits;  if they are  not good enough to' attract capital,  let them fall by their demerits, and  we can pick up our goods and chattels and "migrate somewhere else.,  Let us be manly and honest abont  those things, tell the truth', the  whole truth, and nothing but the  truth., It will pay. We believe  the camp has a big future before it,  but that it' will take considerable  time Jo reach an advanced stage:  We believe it is a good place to tie  up  to, , and   rise  with   it.   /If "**r'nv  L    ' "���" * *      -i"        l      k       "  reader thinks otherwise, he has the  privilege of leaving it, but, in the  name of decency, dp not.let" any of  us  Atlinites, when outside the palt  1.1   - -   ,       >     r  (  of the camp,. go romancing and  dealing,out Arabian,Nights' yarns  about it. .
