Finally, after  what seemed hours, he managed to  burrow up and out of the snow,  which must have been at least seven feet over him. Weak and exhausted he managed to stagger to  his cabin, when he discovered, to  his surprise, that it was past midnight.

The new minister ought to prove.  a.tower of strength to the govern-.  ment as Minister of Kducation, a  department that has suffered-in the  past for lack of a capable hand.

Young, member for  the Atlin district, was, Wednesday  last, sworn in as Provincial Secretary, in the cabinet of the McBride  administration.  This is an honor conferred on the  district and also an honor to that  gentleman who has so ably and  efficiently represented us in the  House during the last session. The  Doctor will be a strong man in the  cabinet. His thorough knowledge  of the affairs of state is well known.  With such associates as McBride,  Ross, Fulton and Tatlow ive rest  assured that the affairs of state  will be conducted in a thoroughly business-like manner. The  rights of the banner province of the  west will be looked after aud the  interests of every individual within  its boundaries guarded and protected ,  Our member, the Hon. H. E.  Young, will appeal to the district  Tor re-election. There is only one  sensible course to pursue. And  that is���elect him by acclamation.  By doing this harmony and accord  will be preserved aud the little differences- of opinion   will be buried  now to exist why Dr. Young's  re-election should be, opposed,  especially in view of the fact that  the conservatives have control of  provincial affairs.  . (Signed)    E. M. N.' Woods.  ���*����..���  The Star happens once a week at  Whilehorsc. We publish a clipping from this, same happening.  To wit: A letter of thanks from  Captain John Irving to his supporters in the Atlin district during ' the  late election.  Our reasons' For publishing the  letter emanate from good-nature  and generosity. The .Star does not  shine very brightly in this district,  and its circulation is weak. Few  people would have a chance lo read  the letter. So, on that account we  print it, that everybody will have a  chance to peruse same.  -It.quotes the .Captain as saying  he was barred from the columns of  Tin* Claim. - This is an untruth.  Captain Irving, in the presence of  his own followers, was told that he  might ��� use the columns of Tub  Claim any time, over his signature.  And as for other liberals wishing to  use the columns of the paper, and  being refused, there was one���a  fellow named, Reid. His letter was  a long, garrulous, mis-spelt, and  tiresome rigmarole, with neither  pith nor point. It was sent back to  the writer with a request to 'boil it  down* and attend to its needs grammatically. Life is too short to  waste lime on garbled and illiterate  effusions from disgruntled individuals who have sour stomachs and a  bad taste' in the mouth���aud who  look the part.  Captain John has a 'kick coming'  alright, but not at Tub Claim nor  at those who opposed him. No  one .appreciates being rooked and  the Captain had it 'handed to him'  SJ  In the Iron Store formerly  occupied by Stables & Lumsden.

It  would only be a reckless waste of  energy, time and money, with the  inevitable result���ignominious defeat.

Why, taking candy from an infaut would be  hard work compared to it.  The criticisms in the Whitehorse  'happening' during the late election  were rather amusing at limes.  They remind ns of the chap who  ;\vent to. see a baseball game.. To  get a good view he climbed a tree���  just outside the fence.

We are indebted to Mr. Geordie  Coutts for the following verses describing beautifully a convivial  gathering of men from the land o'  the thistle and the bluebell. The  author's name we do not know.  If you chance to strike a gathering  of half-a-dozen friends,  Where the drink is Highland whiskey,  or chosen  'Border blends';  And the room is full o' 'speirin' and  the grippin1 o' brown ban's,  And the talk is all of tartans, and of  plaidies and of clans.  .You can take things douce and easy,  you can judge you're going right,  For you've had the luck to tumble  on 'a wee Scotch night.'  When you're pitchforked in among  them in a sweepin' sort o' way,  As   'anither mon an' brither' from  the Tweed or from the Tay.  When you're taken by the oxter and  you're couped into a chair,        7  While  someone slips a  whisky in  your tumbler���unaware.'  Then the present seems  less dismal  and the future fair and bright,  For you've struck earth's grandest  treasure, in 'a guid Scotch night.'  When you hear a short name shouted and the same one shouted back  Till you think, in the coufuson, that  they've all been christened 'Mac'  When you see a red beard flashing  in the corner by the fire  And a giant on the sofa who stands  six-foot three, or higher,  Before you've judged the color and  before you've guaged the height  You'll have jumped at the conclusion, it's 'a braw Scotch night.'  When   the   red   man   iu the corner  puts his strong  voice to the proof  As   he  gives   'ihe   hundred pipers'  and the chorus lifts the roofs;-     *  When a 'chicT sings 'Annie Laurie'  with its tender, sweet refrain  Till   the   tears  are on the eyelids;���  and Ihe drinks come round again.  When they chant the stirring war  songs that would make the coward fight,  Then you're fairly in the middle of  'a braw Scotch night.'  When the plot begins to thicken  and the band begins to play,  When every local chieftan has a  word or.two to say,  When they'd sell a Queensland station for a sprig of native heath,  When one 'Mac' is on the table and  a couple underneath.  When half of them are sleeping and  the whole of them ,'are tight,  You'll know that you're assisting  ' at 'a (hie) Scotch night.'  When the last big bottle's empty,  and the dawn creeps grey and  cold,   f  When the last clan tartan's folded,  and the last big lie is told,  When they totter down the footpath in a brave unbroken line  To the peril of the passer and the  air of Auld Lang Syne,  You can tell the folk at breakfast  as they watch the fearsome sight,  They've only been assisting at 'a  braw Scotch.night.'

The Skai-way Alaskan publishes  :<p interview with Mr. Fred U011-  Vi'iidorf, of Conrad, as follows:  The Windy Arm district is very  ri h and will be one of the'great  -n'-neral producers of the world:  The work that has been done on it  this winler proves thai beyond the  shadow of a doubt.  "The Venus', the Vault, tlie��Big  Thing" and ihe Dalton properties"  arc all rich and all of them will  make mines of ;;reat value. They  have been' developed to a point  where that is assured.  ''About the middle of January  '.he men working on the Venus  struck an ore body 4.0 feet wide- iu  the lower tunnel, aud it is richer  than anyone ever honed to find it.  This is the vein that was looked  for last fall, and thc failure to reach  it for a very long time made some  men' skeptical as to the final outcome of the property's final d.e'vel-.  opment.  "Ore is. being sacked 011 the  Venus now for shipment belpw. *I,l  'will be hauled lo Cariboo aud sent  over the raih;oad. This will go on  the remainder of the winter and  aiext summer.  ''That the Big Thing is rich is  evidenced by the fact that some  men who know what il contains  Ir-icd to get a lay on.il recently and  were refused. They were willing  to expend their own money and  lake chances on thc results.  "The nioi": work there is done on  ihc Vault the belter it looks. Tt is  a splendid propeity.  "The Toochi and Whealon river  countries arc prospecting well, and  conservative mining men believe  they will both develop into, producing mining districts. The boys  who are working in the Whealon  country have been pursuing a  stringer which was only two inches  wide at thc surface I.L is now two  feel wide. Thev are making a shipment of ore outside aud it will yield  ��100 a ton.  mil the defence to put in evidence  as to W'liile's conduct with oilier  women. If his general 'character  can be shown to be that ofa man.  who would probably do what Mrs..  Thaw accuses him of having done,  'il will be corroborative of her testimony. It is said that thc defense  has many witnesses lo prove that  White has ruined other giils than  Evelyn Mesbil.  One of the strongest witnesses on-  -this���point will, be Anthony Coin-  stock of the anti-vice society, who  has evidence of While's treating a  fifteen-year-old chorus gill exactly  as, Mrs. Thaw testified he ircalcd  her.
