Past Experiences' and Future  Prospects.  An Account of the  Work and Development Being- Done on the  ��� Creek.  In an interview with Mr. J. E.  Moran, who has spent the last two  seasons on Otter ��� creek, he said :  "Otter Creek bus its source in what  .the Pcmiuion Geological Surveyor,  Mr. J. C. G'.villim,. terms glacial  drift--the same in which Spruce  and McKee. both of which head  -near the source of Otter, have their  l.'s*.  "Like the other creeks of the dis-  tiict this stream was staked from  moutii to head iu the fall of'9S and  was th- -l looked upon, from pros-  ;n.-c!s found at ihe mouth and at the  I1--I,-*" canvoii seme six miles higher  ���!-,;, a4 one of the good things of the  i%*inn\ The result of the work in  'yy, however, proved most disappointing to the majority of ihose  who had - laims located 611 the  creek. Gold was indeed found in  every case where the claims were  opened, but at 110 place except at  the upper canyon, previously-referred to, were the miners able lo  reach the bedrock, owing to Ihe  depth of gravel and the difficulty of  drainage. At several places the  surface gravel was sluiced and pay  ranging from one to fjur dollars a  day to the man was generally obtained, but very seldom could the  prevailing wages be taken out and  the result was that practically the  whole cieek was abardoiiod in '99  or la.-4 year b\ Ihe claim holders!  and afterward-- taken up in leases j  to be wori'.ed by the hydiaulie'  method. - !  .r can von, howeu'.r. -.  .s   .-.hallow .ind- lor a  worked. Good'pay was -;���>' v-.i-v",  here, no less-than Si _V-C"> n.ivi: ������<  been won. Like most -.n iiu- gold  found in the district Otter creek  gold .is very coarse am! ."utile large  nuggets have ' been fou :d. Mr.  Caldwell, iii '99, found two, worth  iSjOO and S250 respectively���the  latter of which was bought by the  B. C. Government and it was sent  to .the Paris Exhibition. Beside*-"  these���o*ie-ot'--i'6 ounces and - ot'e of  15 ounces were picked up,, tosa\  nothing of smaller ones ranging  from 2 to 5 ounces.  "Surface indications led to the  belief that an old channel existed  near the upper canyon, -.���ar.illeli: g  ihe present channel, much the same  as Willow does Tine. The ���'-..���* .-  -holders at this point lrive ��.>..--fri a  tunnel this winter with -J--.'- obi^c'.  of ascertaining if this were so. A  hundred and twenty feet of chiftiug  has demonstrated the existence of  this old run, and a consistent pay  streak has been met with, varying  in depth from two to fi\e feet.  Bedrock is covered .with from  twenty to forty feet of surface material, most of which ' is of a soft,  almost loamy' nature, carrying 110  value whatever as far as we have,  observed, but   this  dirt   will  vieldl  r  very readily lo the force oi' water'  from a.monitor. Wherever iber? is  gravel there is gold. Indeed anywhere on this portion o? thc. cretk  it is almost impossible to .find a pan  of gravel which di cr> net eo"i.aiu  some gold. It is not possible to  say accurately what this pay streak  which has been found runs to the  cubic yard until the dump is sluiced  in spring. Panning tests, however  have shown' very gratifying prospects. The gravel 'near the bedrock yielded to the pan from a few'  coarse colouis to as high as eighty  cents on two or thiee occasions, leu  cent to fifty cent pans are not uncommon.  benches or what we believe to have  been the old channel.  "Thirteen le ises, granted by the  Government   in    iS ,19   and      1900  cover   the  creek and   benches for a  distance  of about   two   an-t a   half  miles, from   half a mile   below   ihc  canvuii to two miles  above.     Practically   ail   the ground  capable   0!  being   worked    by   the     ordinary !  -methods   at   the   canyon   has been  worked out and  the owners bought  off by the  leaseholders.    There is a  good   supply   of   water  and   by   a  ditch   of   two   niiles  over 300 feet  bead   cou!d   be   obtained   or a mile  ditch   would  give nearly 200 - feel,  according   to   the survey made last  summer.    The grade is'satisfactory,  4 1-2 per cent below thc canyon for  half a mile, 9 per' cent through the  ei-.nyon itself ar.d 5 per cent for two  miles   above.      A   good'   dumping  ground  is  obtainable  on the lower  portion of  leases b2low the canyon.,  ���i��d ihe whole forms an almost ideal  hydraulic   property.   ' There 'is ar.  incalculable   amo.int  of gravel and  =0   far as it has   been   prosptcted it  .ill contains pay   for   hydra ulieiug.  Judging   from    surface   indications  *he-benches have at one,time  been  traversed by   watercourses,  any   or  all of which may,contain good pay.  ,-THE GRIM REAPER'   /  Claims a Victim We ill Could  Spare. ,  Tragic Death oC.-Mp.

The  Amboli-.ia group of leases, seventeen  .n ;i.1 ruber, covers the lower portion'  of the creek from ihe ���-mouth to the  first canyon, and the owners are  well satisfied with the winter's developments. There is not the  least doubt but that Otter creek  will very soon rank with 'many of  the other good creeks of this district as a great producer and help  to make the Atlin gold fields���what  there is every reason to believe they  will become���ihe greatest "hydraulic  mining camp in the world."

Its' Geology   and    Auriferous  Deposits:  The Mineralized Belt.���-II.  Tn a iectul interview Capt. John  J. Mealy, a pioneer of Alaska,  is reported to have told the people  of Toronto, Ont., in speaking of  the richness ol the great Mackenzie  \ alley that "Yon Canadians have  certainly one of the very finest portions of the west. You have the  timber and the fuel and the mixes.  You have a country that you cannot  possibly prospect' inside the next  100 years. You have the whole of  the Mackenzie river, and I believe  it is as good as the Yukon, and  within 150 miles of the Yukon. If  it was within our ' territory there  would be .50,000 people there within a vear."  ���, Having thus - briefly considered  the position and" extent of the several granitic masses to whose influence the niinerul.iy.'iti-'-n of tin:  camp is primarily due, let us now-  direct inquiry lo the mineralized  belt itself���the' more immediate;  source of its auriferous gravels.  The total area of this belt or zone  is approximately 1200 squaie miles,  of which by far the major portion  lies, east of Atlin lake, north of  the O'Donnell-Pikc. valley, in two  wide tracts, extending indefinitely  north and east beyond the confines  of the cam j).  Elsewhere throughout the district the characteristic gold-bearing  rocks of the region underlie, or appear as if intermingled with sand-  stoues and conglomerates of Cretaceous age; here they form, a .distinct, and easily recognised series.  The larger of the tracts thus  distinctly auriferous occupies tin-  entire region lying between the lake  shore and the Teslin "divide,"  south of the first and second granite  Ifl. fraser $ ���o.

With the completion of tlie Trans-Siberian Railroad from St. .Petersburg*, and tbe  .contemplated construction ofa road  through British Columbia north to  the international boundary, with  the Yaldez railroad to tap the  Yukon, it requires no great slretcli  of imagination to picture a railroad across Behrinjr .Strait. It is  only about 20 miles to Diouiede  inland, and from il less than  twenty miles to tlie- Siberian shore.  Klondike's mineral wealth is goo*  for years to come, and there is but  little question that more gold will  be won in the next twenty-live  years from our northern fields  than all the rest of the world pui  together has contributed during the  past generation.
