MOST'  GRATIFYING     RESULTS    PROM    UNITED    ENERGY.  The ��� Fine Creek Tunnel Syndicate Completes the First Part of its  Contrast with the Leaseholdersr--A Soon for the Atlin District  as a Hydraulic Camp. .. , .   .  ��� After twenty-four dayscontiuuou-"  work, three- shifts daily, bedrock  has been struck on the " Race  Horse''' property, in the Miaft sunk  on the "Lillian'.' cl.'iim. by the  Pine Tunnel Syndicate and the prospects found in last winter's shaft  on the same ground have been fully  viified. This nro\es co-.clusively  lhat the pay chain cl�� of i ine follow  ihe vaile'y from end to 'cud, and  have a unifomi value. Tlie g. Id  taken from bedrock was \ery coarse  and uuggcty aud strongly resembles  that of -the Willow creek run, live  miles up the valley. The'appearance ol" tlie pay gravel is also very  similar, and bedrock is the characteristic serpentine formation . observed lo underlie Willow creek  ,n d vici'.'ily. Bedrock was struck  at a depth of forty-four feet, and although the gravel taken from the  shaft has not yet been sluiced out,  it would appear from tlie panuings  made Uiat one of the later runs of  liie cieek lias also followed the same  channel, having for its bedrock a  cemented, mixed b.idy of clay aud  ��Ta-.c!, uhich immediately overlies  the silty overburden of I lie  bedrock  lead.  Thc camp is to be congratulated  on the ei.ergetic y>"ay in which our  first local  enterprise  took   hold   of  prospect work,, and the greatest  difficulty encountered in handling  the steady flow of water' in  ill is {-/articular shaft, which in  ihe absence of a steam pump, made  siukirg a slow and laborious  m-il'tcr.  ft is impossible as yet to estimate  the -.values contained in either of  these runs," but the prospect taken  fiotn- bedrock tends to increase the  e-ilimate made last winter in the  shaft then flunk when the pay  streak tliere struck was est i ma led  to-run from ��[5 to SiS per cubic  yard. It 'is now doubted whether  last year's shaft really stiuck bedrock on the channel at its depth .of  thirty feet. The present shaft is  not i:k "e than ten or fifteen feet  farther to the north yet goes down  at least twelve feet deeper, allowing  for the difference in surface level.  From the data kept during last  year's sinking many are of the  opinion that the prospect then  .bund was taken from .tlie false  bedrock of the upper 11111, which  may have rested on the rim or on a  large boulder obstructing.. the  channel.  Fiom a cross-section furnished'  us by JSIr. MolTatt, the: following  strata appear to have been cut  through   in    thc   new   shaft before  and gravels, 9 feet; wash gravel,  carrying" pay, 5 feet: Uustratificd  sills, and gin\Tls, carrying boulders  (bjuld'-r clay), 5 feet; Silt deposit,  distinctly laminated, 8 feel; wash  gravel, containing an abundance o!  quartz and carrying coarse gold,  "miggety" on bedrock, 6 feel; bedrock, a serpentinized rock, heavily  mineralized with iron pyrites.  As the contract, made between  the Leaseholders' trustee, Mr. J. H.  Brownlee, and the Syndicate, expires April 1st, and there still ��� remain's oyer Si000 of work to be  done in order to complete" the Syndicate's contract' and give title to its  contingent interest in the property,.-  some fear was expressed that the  work' yet remaining (drifting on  bedrock) could not be completed  within the next twenty days, ,owing  ���'to the constant flow of water. As  Mr."Br6wnlee did <:ot desire to expose the .Syndicate lo a possible loss  of its interest through defaulting  on the contract he baud homely offered to assume all further - respon-.  sibilily "on its part, and himself  install a steam pump with" a capacity sufficient - to keep bedrock  drained while fuither prospecting  progressed. This he assumed provided -the Syndicate placed at his  disposal the-sum of $'900 with which  to thus complete their contract with  his.'principals. It speaks vol tunes  for the. Vitality ol the camp that  this sum s'lioiild have bsesi subscribed almost at the instant at the  meeting of the-Syi'dir-ate, Tue.Kkn  evening, at which Mr. f3iownlee'.--"  senerous offer w-��s made.  Iu addition to this concession on  the part of the Leaseholders theii  trustee further consented to finance  the $'-'300'due to him under the  contract in ord.'r to clear the  charges on the property. Thus our  local enterprise has gol down to  bedrock on the Leaseholders' properly without' having to get down  to bedrock in their .treasurer's  strong-box.  The benefit to the camp of the  successful issue Of this happy venture cannot be over estimated. It is  in a way a second Discovery on Bin-  creek and should stimulate furt'iei  ventures of a like nature in othe,  portions of the valley, along the  course of the old glacial stream  With the indications recently uncovered on the Stevendyke propcrU  aud now, again, on the Race Horse  group, this course should not be difficult of definite determination.  .Mr.' Brpwnlee's unwavering faith  in the lower reaches of Pine valley  this   proposition.    Over   $f.ouo   iu j Ix'.drock was   reached: .Surface drift  cash and labor was expended in the 'material,    ti   feet;    Stratified   silts  has thus   been   proved   1101 in any  way misplaced.  Although k::own iu great part Ut  many of our readers, the history of  this particular prospect' may be retold with, profit as'well as with the  interest that always attaches itself  lo success. When Mr. Brownlee  first acquired the Lillian property���  it was iu the eaily days of the camp,  --it was,, an isolated lease claim  with nothing yet developed in,its  vicinity, that could lead the.  most optimistic to ascribe '.,,-to  it any particular value, its. distance being so great from the  main scene of activity, Discovery  basin. \'et, with , his' usual determination to force the issue with Our  Lady,, Fortune, he very quietly and  methodically started the .still hunt  for the nuggets found on Tuesday last. , .,;  In the winter of last year as.soon  as sinking operations could be commenced with some certainty of controlling \ possible water, Messrs.  Cross and Macintosh, the latter one  of, the best practical miners in the  district, joined him in sinking the  preliminary prospect to 'which reference has already been .made. Mr.  Macintosh reported the discovery  of a lead running through the properly about 1200 .feet-north of-the  present--creek, which at this point  and for "mil=s above, had proved  barren. This discovery created no  little excitement at the time, but  Mr. Brownlee's abse* ce.from the  camp for some month's thereafter,  postponed immediate.development.  The shaft, not having been timbered, caved in immediately tlie  spring opened and upon his return  fur*her prospecting was deferred  till this winter.- ; ;  -In November last the Pine-Tunnel Syndicate was crganized for the  purpose of running a 1200-foot  tunnel from the creek to the vicinity  of the . dismantled shaft, wi.h the  idea of draining the channel-.supposed to have been found. - This  tunnel was not run in very far. .before it became evident that it .would  not hit bedrock in the'distance expected. Several shafts" were then  sunk on the proposed line of th-  tunnel with the idea of verifying  the depth to bedrock, but in each  case water was encountered which  could not be" handled w'illi the appliances within the' immediate reach  of the miners.- Finally a new shaft  was started wifh the bold determii.-  atiou to get'to "bedrock or bu'st."  Three shifts relieved one another  ���   Continued on Fourth Page.  BREWERS OF-STEAM ANI> LAGER  11KKR.

'SATURnAv, March  i6th,   190:.  It is with genuine satisfaction  we learn that' the Provincial Legislature at its present session is very  seriously and carefully considering  amendments.to 'the Placer Act, one  of the most iniporl-uit of which iv  the increasing", tlie size of a placer  claim- to'250 feet. It is current  rumour that -the proposed amendments .have already become, law,  but this rumour we h*i\e not been  able to verify up to the moment of  going to pi ess.  Regarding proposed amendments  generally, we learn that it is the intention to do away, so far as may be  possible, with the conflict between  themining law of this Province and  that of the No* th west Territories  which lias, occasioied so much difficulty, needless ��� litigation and loss  to miners; especially in this district.  The Territorial placer claim is 250  feet-square, and many of the 'cou-  .ditions attached are similar-to those  provided for' in the amendments  now before the Legislatuie.  That the* Northwest laws on the  whole lire the bmoothest and generally fairest in their working of any  otr the ''American continent is thc  opinion of the majonly of cur  miners .conversant with litem, and  respect; to this opinion has been  " paid to its expression as appears  from" references to the question in  recent Coast papers.  Not only is a'100-foot claim too  small to allow of a reasonable return  for-a miner's enterprise and labour,  but it is too small to be worked advantageously without sluice-boxes  ordump trespassing' upon the adjoining property. Iu granting the  prospector- o'wiership, rights in the  claim he'has located, it is only fair  that'the Government should grant  him' also a seasonable extent of  room on his property for its development in such a manner as to return  the best results.  Complete details of the proposed  amendments the Legislature has  now'tinder consideration have not  yet been made public; when disclosed; a vast army of prospectors  ��� hope to find that insistence upon  personal staking is one of the conditions, and an increased penalty  provided for all .unjustifiable claim-  jumping. Action iu these two details would undoubtedly stimulate  ' prospecting immensely aud give  great*-satisfaction to placer miners  in whatever portion of the Province  they may be found.  Upon, tiie final passage of the  Amended Placer Act on the lines  proposed there is very strong reason  to expect .th:-.!; the Atlin camp will  enjoy a recurrence of the activity  which first brought it into existence. -; With a gold-bearing area of  ��� over' 1200; square miles-���half as  large again as the Dawson camp,���  little more than hah" has as yet been  prospected, and- the indications.are  that" much valuable' ground .is still  open to the enterprising prospector.  Tin-: report mmi Ottawa that the  i"t)!i-.iti'o:i Co*, eminent will at once  --si ibl h an Assay Office in Van-  jo..'. ei at which gold will be pur-  ���������'. if-cd .jt its full value, in a manner  -'iii:..i lo th.it ;���'lowed at Seattle  ���bir.iig tlie past three years, will be  rceeivul   with   general  satisfaction.  For the moment this does away  .vitli the iniiuediati- demand for a  v1 int. so far as .-the miner is concerned. 'The desired opportunity is  at last given- him to convert liis  hard earned gold iulo coi:* at the  minimum n\' cost, within the Pro-  .���incs.', and the dust being purchased  o\ as d for the Diminion Government, it v.ill sunn be decided, as a  natural'0hi���.tqu-.-nce, that the best  way lo tie.it- the gold thus pur-  Jus'-d i;-.

C, to Ti'le-  graph Creek and Atlin. ,  The construction ,\vork was c- nu-  -pleled between Ouesuelle ard Hazel-  ton, aud then the party was sent  out from Hazelton to continue construction north, while simultaneously another parly was started out from  Telegraph Creek to work south an1,  make connection wilh the H axe I to u  paity, ab .ut half wa- between theiv  two points Tu their work one  p-irty struck aloi-g a certain valley  and the other party an entirely different valley. The result is that  the actual work of construction has  overlapped, and .instead of the wires  being connected the ends are 70  miles apart, with two gigantic  rsi.ge.s- of mountains intervening,  it will be impossible to connect the  wires ' 'over these-mountains,' and  the result must be the destruction  a"d abandonment of a large portion  i.f the' line already built and the  b .ih'.ing of a new line lo make connection with one end or the other.  Just who is responsible for  this untoward condition of affaii>  has not yet transpired.- The matter  \-ill be venrlatcd in Parliament.  "Thc white 'cheesy' stibstuine  is oolitic limestone deposit, made of  minute spherules of CalciunrCar-  bmale, not unlike lish-roe in ap-  piarance. This is due to the de-  pi-sition of calcium carbonate, lrom  solution, around tiny grains ol cal-  carious sand until thc spherules are  built up aiid often cenieuted together iiiti'i a curious rook called  oolite, found often on coral islands."
