i Resolutions Condemning the Pre-
•      sent Condition of Affairs.
The t'Jiteiwioii of tlie close season
until   the    ist   of.August   had   a
dampening effect on the good  feeling   which   would  otherwise have
been inspired by the arrival of Judge
Irving.    That 'the government intends to sacrifice this country for
the benefit of its" political' friends is
s-ery evident.    The reason given for
the extension of the season   is that
by  the date set the commissioner
'' svill have disposed of most of the
,   disputes.     This excuse,   probably,
is better than none.     But   why,   if
the   Minister of   Mines  has  confidence in his gold commissioner here, j
did he not leave that question for
him to pass upon.    There are many
claims in which the disputes are so
involved thai'the gold commissioner
,   would be justified iu giving further
lay-overs.     But  there arc  a very
large number of claims*that could
and'should have been  represented
on June  15th at the latest.    If the
owners are not here or have not arranged  for   representation   that is
1   their   look-out.      In   this   district
there are hundreds of idle men who
ha\-e not the chance to secure claims,
nor will they be gis'en employment
by those who hold them.   -All because   our   model (?)    go\*ernment
" must protect its friends.    The large
meeting held on Saturday last svas
the result of the iiisane course which
the  government is pursuing.    To
make the cup more bitter the government compels each party to the
present disputes   to   pay  into   its
coffers.thc.sum of $25.    This is extreme when it is considered that the
government and its officials are solely to blame for the miserable condition of affairs.    The delegates to
Victoria may meet with success, but
we doubt  it.    They   have a good
. case, but the insatiable maw of the
gos-ernment is not yet satisfied; a
few more dollars may" be rung from
the people.    After the poor man is
driven  from   his   claim   then   the
oracle svill sneak.
Two Men Elected to Go to Victoria to See the Government.
An Enthusiastic  Miners' - Meeting—
Lieniga's Hiding- Place.
l*n>nv Our Correspondent.
Discovery, June 20.—One of the most on-
vhusl&stic iu*-Ptvi»g*.» e*ei- held In. this town
took place on Monday evening: In lhe tent
.if the British Miner's Protective Association
to consider the advisability of mui-ching
down to Atlin anil presenting their list of
grievances before the Goltl Commissioner.
The tent, which has a seating cu.pac.ivy of
"-Ni, was packed to the doors. * After eou-
-,-iilontblc debate the meesi»g resolved on
SS'eilnp.sduy as the day oir which to present
thoir case, aiul ere this is published you will
know all about it.
E. K. Allan, of this town, was out liuirt'iig
stitne of bis horse-, irr the vicinity of the head
of .Spruce creek lust week., uud not At/ding
thorn.there cro-ised fiver to the head of McKee. AS'hiU' at this latter place he found a'
new* lile which he rlii'iilis is the one used by*
the would-be murderer Licuiga to file* off
bis shackles with. The-surroundings iniKcat-
cil that the wiuulei*er hud no axe, for no
trace of its use coulif be seen around. The
fire built was built of chips. ''Had I taken
n'.little more time there is now doubt f would
have found the shukJbs," basuid.
Salisbury anil Anderson, working* 1 and 2
below,' took out HO Ounces on Tuesday afternoon. This represented one night nuil day
for ten uieu. .   .
About (ll)ll Iree miners l'rmn Pine City eon
grpgatpd on First street, opposite St. Clair
H'-iekett'-. iron store, on Wednesday afternoon, and at tho call of .). A. McKiunon pro-
cemled to elect a chairman. Alfred Munk
wns chosen as such and H. Cowan secretary.
Tho chairman, after stating the object of
the meeting said there, was ni> politics in the
meeting. It was purely ori«> to deal w ith tho
grievances and the lay over. *"
The first business was tho appointing fit a
committee — Messrs. Cameron. McCraney.
.SicKiutiou and Capt. McPhattcr—to wait on
the. Commissioner "uud iuv ite his presence at
tho meeting. i
After Mr. Graham had taken a seat upon
the platform, Mr. McLean came forward
and said that ou behalf of the meeting held'
at Pine City on Monday evening ho had been'
requested to ask the Gold Commissioner
some questions. ,
M. McLean:   AVould you tell us if the powers, of the Gold Commissioner havo been curtailed .**  ' r >
Mr. Graham:'  AS'ere curtailed in 1802.
M.  McLean-:     Well,   gentlemen,   there   is
yutir  answer.
M. McLean: Were >ou instrumental in
bavin*' the close season extended?
Mr. Graham: You are not uvvitro ol the
actual conditions existing in tin-** country'.
Although I am not at liberty to disclose
where my orslers come from, if you refer to
tho Atlin Cf.Aiyi you will find out. I receive my instructions from the Minister of
Mines. l~
Mr. McLean: Gentleman, if Mr. Graham is
not responsible tho re is no use appealing to
hiin for a remedy. What are the actual conditions of the miners in thi» district to-ilay.
They have been reduced to a state of beggary and I would *uy""thoft. AVhat other action may be taken beyond this I'm riot prepared to say. Ho regretted that a meeting
such as this should be held in thin or any
other country. A> I look ,iuto their faces
and see. the hardships depicted there T can
only imagine what hearts are bleeding.
Another question I would like to ask Mr.
Graham is whether he is prepared to charter a boat to take out the men at presnut in
thiu district on the verge of starvation; an 1,
if not, is Mr. Graham prepared to give these
jneu, who are willing to work, some kind of
public employment? Enough revenue has
been taken iu iu this dUtrict to .»u«iruitte<i
such n step. I never saw a. mora intelligent
and forbearing lot of men in all my li'fe'. You
only have to look over the! stakes iu this
district to see that.' The third and final
is that we respectfully demand that July 1st
be made the open season.
Mr. Graham: 1 am a hired'master nnd as
such I have to* obey the ordors of my superiors. I cannot override any minister's
order. The Minister of Mines is king of ull
Gold Commissioners mid as such must be"
obeyed. Now. if you will take a little guidance, I would suggest that this meeting appoint a nommitt', Ira.v up resolutio is "arid
present them to the proper head. I have no
doubt they will be acted upon. I am thoroughly familiar with the forbearance that
miners baVe exori>i^9 1 in this community; I \
ana also familiar with the evil of exhorting;
public bodies to hasty action. I would beg j
of you that this forbearance continue until t
such time as a remedy pomes. Tn tiip spend- |
ing of money I'm also limited, since tho estimates passed by Parliament confine me to
the sum to be expended. Lots of men have
been employed and over $4,000 have been
oxppiided ou traits and roads this season.
A voice from the ..tlior side of the street-
How much did you take ini'
Mr. Graham: That's m.v business- Altout
the tithing of the destitute out of the country, r, will iiniJ the bouts if tho meeting will
provide tlie money. I have no power tn
close en- extend the season, anil anyone conversant with the law of tbe laud knows that
power* is not vested in roe,

'I I '*<  J       .    (  H  ATLIN/ B.  C,   SATURDAY,, JU-NE   2.|,    iticjc,.  Vt  MM*****  I *  It,  I'  IV  '..J  ,'A  |.,V  MASS MEETING OF MINERS  (Continued from Page Two.)'  in-council was passed extending the season  ������and an oc-fler-iu-council would have to be  .piiHicd to rescind the previous one. Ou  whose advice wait the oxteiuiitau made; who  ���furnished the information. It showed poor  Judgment on Mi*. Hume'* part, and If iiaEji-  i terferni'ice had taken t&tc<> ill*. Gruhiun  ���would have opened and closed the sottson.  What Is the reason of the extension? It must  lie plain to all. It was to ult'ortl political  .grafter* nu opportunity to get control of  iclnlms. Hi, knew of one company that had  ' -over 2UUclaims, ami this ivjnl.l In. seen by going totliio recorder1* ottice. By thb.extfn-  ���mioii off time theso propertiet 'can be pros-  jiected by hitlf'u ilo/.eu men and found if  they we north anything or not. If the suit-  isori v'ns not extended tliem> okrmrfl would  tutvo ha be ropresonted aud the coiupuiiies  therrfoy bo unable soto'do with half a flozon  ~'t moil. Is tho i?2r> feo to be-charged right?  1 lutUB not $25, like ��. grafter who .comes In  .and takes all. The companies oxpoct to  Xriiorse us out. Tho judge hail nothing to do  with the foe imposed; it was the executive  council, and If they will not give us redress  we ean' got out of the country. Another  -point about the liberality of tho 11. C. Gov-  wrnanont. He kne* of one man who had paid  $1,MK) for records and lay overs. ' Three such  -wo-dBd pay for the whole expenditure by the  ,goj��r anient for the season.    ' ,    '    ..  Moved by J. A. McKinnon and Capt. Me-  Phatter rthat two delegates be-aeuttsb Vic-  totfi* and carried unanimously.  Tim tun.H.f of SV. >vicCi-ii.icy and J.A.Mc-  Kintoon were iinully decided ou.  A\'. McCraney was pleased to see such un  orderly meeting.     One delegate v�� as enough  " to send down: if tlio.v would not listen to one  IthtfJ* w otild not listen to tnol   He had seen  im* with barely sufficient provisions to last  *the*n two w eeks.-livlng on a little flour and  ,?teu-   Such conditious should not exist in any  civilized country.   The government at Vic-  toifet is responsible for allow ing speculators  >to *aiit the countiy.   He knew of one man  whe represented 200 claims, and the law that  ialln��i8 this is wromg.   There are at present  7io*i)aims to stake.   He had men 52 stakes inn  ���one claim.   Owing to the condition of the  ���country it w ill be easier to' subscribe for one  imm than two.      ' "'  tTno meeting did not think his way and  HhfcHbove delegation went out on Friday.  "foe committee apyointed to dmft resolu-  HicWts submitted the following to the meeting  Su the evening., ,\ Inch were adopted:    '  Resolved, that .this miners nasc meeting  ���do tseud two delegates, namely Messrs. Mc-  iKlrftion and MeCraney, to Victoria to lay the  fgrW-Vances beifore the Provincial Executives  ianA the following resolutions were uiiani-  rmiMisly eiulorsed:  It-esolved, that tl e mining industry of  At'ft'n district *has suffered serious injury by  the action and questionable practices of  Nortt&an AV. F. 'Rant whilst officiating in the  capacity, of recorder, and that his conduct  whilst iu office calls for a special investigu-  ***m by the authorities.  ���Resolved, that the present Gold Commit,-  kroner, J. Ii. Graham, has not come up to the  -expectations -'formed of him; that he hag  'shown what appears to us to be much iode-  vcision of character; that he has postponed  .cases repeatedly which he ought, by the  ���pow ers granted him, to 'have settled ou a  .iirst hearing; and further that the Gold  Commissioned has allowed and sanctioned  " tthe nefarious practice ia. vogue in the government olB��e of taking successive fees from'  ���many* miners for recording ono and the  e.ame claim, thus producing a state of affairs  ���amounting practically to a deadlock and tin-  "-paralleled in the history of uny country;  ���aud iu our judgment matters have been  Snuch aggravated by the record hooks not  flavins: heen kept posted up to date.  Resolved, that the Hon. tho Minister of  Mines be respectfully but firmly urged to  take such steps as he iu his judgment may  ��ic*in necessary in order t,�� have this galling  Mtttte of affairs rectified with all possible expedition. "���"  Resolved, that in the matter of the fractional chums which were still open for relocation by the error of the original locators  lust fall in staking under the impression  thut they were lii the N. W. T.. we hold It as  unjust that the government dispose of them  to the highest, bidder by public auction, aud  ���further hnld that the first miners vvho  staked these-rlaicm*;-and fractions after the  error w as riincoverrd aro legally entitled to  them.  Resolved,, that "n the matter of tlie eon-  strur-tion of mat-Is, trails, bridges hud other  .government works thut it will be in the best  interests of the inineru thut such be done directly bv tire government on the wage system. That ns the revenue collected directly  from the miners is very large, said miners  rare entitled to profit by its disburtoment,  land ought tu have dooeut wages when employed by tho government, as is only just and  etiuitable, when the amount of time lost,  hardships endured and risks run hy them in  coming into' the country is taken Into consideration. AV'e would also deprecate the  letting of contracts for snob works by the  .government as unworthy of Its dignity, hy  this letting of contracts to tho lowest bidder  ���taking advantage of his necessities. Many  men will tender on contracts at any price.  (Witness the absurd figure at which the Mc-  Kcs pr��pk trail  whs lntol.c nw itrrled.)   Such  tenderers are not bona litle catitnMbws.  They cannot possibly pay their erapttafx-s  anything appraaoltlng living wages *.��Airt*��  also caunttt turn nut satisfactory work.  Resolved, that we. hiving hewrl w.ttfti  alarm and iit-tliguatloii thlt the close rtHnKrii  bus hron extended to Augmct l*t, raatttUt&Vxt  all the dictates of reason and common virtue.,  uud that it*.ill he a dourceof lncalaftjiftSeKn-  jury to the Diiulng and huMtuess intefreftlx *>f  this district, giving It u set-back fra-m Chech  it will not -recover this season, IfwdN, do  hereby enriMstly demitiid that the sMtiftn lie  opened on the ltlth duy of Julj or oatBiel'. if  possible, and,that lit future the Oolfc Commissioner he empowerod to "Hy tho date ifT  opening and oltwlng In the best dntrt-ortu ^<f  the mining industry.  Resolved, that the authorize1! fee <*f SSr>  reciulred to he put up by litigant* tin mining  cases appearing before the Special 'Colnrnis-  sioner, tho Hon. Justice Irving, are exorbitant aud calculated to defeat the enrfU-Uf justice, many, iff said lltlgautti v. 1th p.W.sdbl.v,  just cases being ilnauclully UK&fole Ho meet  this demand, and we consider such roo'Ought'  to be vory mtiolt reilured or even rttxitiwhfcd  aitognther. 7    , -  ������STOP    WHERE   THiE    MINERS    STOP.   ?
