ATLIN DISTRICT,  Its  Geology   and    Auriferous  Deposits:    '  . The Old Valley Gravels of Pine .and  Spruee Creeks.���III. ���  The "point from which the old  valley gravels of   Pine  creek   cease  ���' to he traceable as a deposit in place  is marked by the'sudden culmination of its..south side benches,  which; the observer, - will have  noticed, is the characteristic feature  of the first few-'hundred feet below  Discovery claim. Up to this point  they rise , gradually - in elevation  from the direction of Gold Run,  here culminate, then as gradually  fall away to the fiat rocky bench  ground at the mouth ofHtevcrdyke  gulch.  Immediately west of this mor'ainic  ridge a glacial stream of some magnitude appears lo have come in from  the'south or south-east and joined  the old vallev, which it thence follows westward; probably occupying,  but not culfing deeply, if at all, into  . Ihe ancient bedrock. Glacial action, in fact, so far as surface indications show, has dispersed the old  deposit from .here downward, and  in this dispersion the glacial stream  mentioned may have been an important factor. Il emerges at about  the elevation of the main iloor of  the old valley, its gravels glaciated  and quite distinguishable from those  of the pre-glacial stream; but immediately il turns westward il loses  this individuality and granite detritus, derived, from the older bed,  wholly changes its aspect. Its  silly covering, formerly bluish in  colour, now as.Miines a yellow, rusty  appearance, which is maintained for  a mile or more, or so far as its channel has been traced in its onward  course, south of, but parallel with  that of the present creek.  From these   indications   il would  appear as M" the direction of the pre-  glacial river was that followed by  these later streams, although nowhere below the foot of Discover}'  basin have iis gravels been found  undisturbed and in place.  If a line be drawir from this point  of disappearance  due  south across  1 the Pine-Spruce   valley,of   today.it  I would cut Soruce creek at the exact  1  j point at which the, pre-glacial deposits of -that creek cease likewise  to exist as a deposit in place...Moreover, it. would be found that the  floors.of the two deposits are practically of' tbe same elevation, 620  feet above Atlin lake. The conclusion to be drawn from this coincidence has yet to be worked out.  From 'his point eastward the  yellow gravels are distinctly traceable for a distance of five or six  miles up the valley, or as far as  Ragle Point; confined, mainly, to  the south Mde oi the present creek,  although also" in evidence under  the north benches for half a mile or  more before their final disappearance rAs in the case of Pine creek,  a glacial stream emerges in the immediate \icinily ,of this sudden  termination "of the old deposit on  Spruce, and the shallow diggings  of the creek, which extend from  No. 80 to No. 135 below, undoubtedly owe their great richness to a  concentration ' by both the glacial  and present, stream of these old  gravels.  Unlike Pine creek, Spruce offers  every opportunity for the successful  exploitation of this pre-glacial run  by hydraulic methods. The gravels  lie on the rim of the present creek,  which for a considerable distance  has a grade exceeding 2 per cent  with suitable dunipage ground below. The quantity of water im-j  mediately available is certainly  somewhat limited, save when the  creek is.in flood (then 2500 inches),  but an inexhaustible supplv lies  convenient should operations be  undertaken on a scale commensurate with the values known to lie  within lire gravels,  Drills run Iron') 100 10,150 feet' in  Ihe ancient deposit have paid from  $510*5,10 a cubic yard, a rand.mi,  ifio   vanN   in    one   block    having  f  given a wash-up of iSofio, an avei-  age of $6 a yard. The concentrations are of course much richer, 70  ounces to two men drifting lo'lhrce  davs 011 the-glacial run being.re-  ported as the latest winter record;  the claim from which this was  taken being a few hundred feet up  stream from thai on, which the S4  ounce nugget of 1899 was garnered  from the rim of, the present stream  bed, ��� .     .  , It cannot be doubled that Spruce  creek will al a very early- date be  taken up as an hydraulic proposition from end to end. lis upper  and lower reaches are even now  about to undergo preliminary development, backed by Vancouver,  Chicago and Cincinnati capital; and  while the central portion, that of  the pre-glacial gravels,- is yet in the  hands of the individual miner���so  far as concerns the shallow diggings  of the present stream���therefore "in  statu quo," its pre-"glacial bench  deposits can be exploited for many  years to come with' little, if any,  disturbance to the busy creek miner.  It is merely a question of time,  money and engineering skill, and  capital is even now watching the  camp with interest arid with evergrowing confidence in its unrivalled  opportunities for long and profitable  investment.   ���  -To be continued.-  to spend $150,000 in de\e'opmei:l.

It  is also intended to increase the capacity of the ditch ou   the south side  of Pine, which    was   built  late last  season     in    conjunction   wilh   the I  Stevendyke Hydraulic Partnership, j  for the purpose of supplying  water|  lo miners 0:1  that side of the creek.  A syphon   will   convey   water from j  Uie main  ditch to this one, and the!  company will be prepared to supply  water either from  open ditch or under   pressure.       Hydraulicing   on  Willow   will   be    vigorously    prosecuted, but   the company does not  contemplate   woiking   the Sunrise  group this season.

Saturday, March 23rd,   1901.  A   "comhination "    appears to  have been entered into by the several lumber .mills of-the city and district, the result  of which is an unprecedented'advance in the price of  lumber���this  season's ' figures  ruling fully 75 per cent  over  those of  last   year..   We . are  decidedly ad-  ,   verse   to   "combines"   against'the  general  interest, and this'is, in our  opinion,   one .'such.     To   support  their  action   the mill  owners claim  to have lost money or) last season's  operations.     Presuming they did, ,is  ' this fact alone sufficient justification  for such an   extraordinary   advance  at this late season ?   There is a long  career of profitable employment still  befoie them and if they would- reimburse   themselves   for   last   year's  shortage  no serious objection could  be made if they followed the instalment plan and spread~Nthe debt due  them   by   the   camp "over se\eral  seasons.    An   advance   of,   say,  25  per cent would not be seriously felt,  and with the demand   now insight  such moderation would pay them in  the long run much better than this  forcing policy.    The  immediate result of this action on their 'part has  been to practically stop all building  ' operations in .the town.    We .know  of two instances  in which contracts  for new buildings, entered  into before the raise in- lumber, have been  cancelled  and   doubtless  there are  others.    The plea of the  mill men  that it is better to sell half at double  prices   is     not    business.      There  is    a   certain   and   ever increasing  demand   for   lumber  for  building,  hydraulic and other purposes and if  estimates based on last year's prices  have been used and  figured on for  this season's installations, etc., such  an enormous advance as 75 per cent  in the lumber item is enough to   blast the camp. . Think it over  again, gentlemen. Why put a  brake ou the wheel at this stage of  the camp's development ?  The   "combine"   prices  are as  follows:  Rough  Sii.gle Dressed  Double Dressed    .

Dr.  Dawson's place will have a very  hard task to perform.  ' Wis congratulate Vancouver on  the munificent offer made by Mr.  Andrew Carnegie lo build a'public  library in that city at a'cost of $50,-  000.00, on condition- that the city  provides a suitable site and guarantees to spend at least $5000 annually  on its maintenance. We presume  il is too good'an offer to let slip, but  if the City Fathers of Vancouver  don't come up, just refer us'to Mr.  Carnegie and-let us deal with him.  "II" the City of Vancouver will  furnish a suitable site and guarantee  to spend at least $5000 a year ou its  public library, Mr. Andrew Carnegie, of New York, the millionaire  steel manufacturer, will give a sum  of $50,000 to erect a building here.  "This important announcement  is made authoritatively on' the  strength .of a telegram from Mr. G.  R. Maxwell, M.P., to the Province.  He received definite assurance in  writing from Mr. Carnegie, and the  letter has been forwarded by. him to  Mayor Townley for official" action  in the'matter."���Thk- Provinck.  As far as we know, this "is the  first gift of a public library made by  Mr. Carnegie to Canada, though he  has shown his liberality in endowing very many such institutions in  the States and in the Old Country.

Dr.  Dawson���after whom Dawson City  A submarine cable from Seattle  to Skagway, with" branches to  Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan and other  points on the coast, is the project  for which has been- organized the  Northern Commercial Telegraph  Company, says the Seattle P. I.  The company has been formed in  London, and has secured a charter  so far as Canadian territory is concerned. It is proposed to lay a submarine cable from this city to Skagway, taking in Vancouver and Victoria, and all intermediate points  along the coast where canneries,  mines or other industries are  located. A branch telegraph line  will also be extended'through Dawson to vSt. Michael. It is possible,  too, that lines will be strung up the  Skeena and Stikeen rivers. In an  interview Lieut.-Col. Domville, one  of the promoters, and well known in  the Hast and in Dawson, says:  " We have plenty of money to  lay our c::ble aud build our branch  lines, but we want to be assured  the service substai.tial support; before starting, and we have come to  the conclusion that the best way  would be to try and get some prominent men interested in it.

In order to  convey to   Mr. Moffat a slight idea  of theesLeerif in which   he-was held  he was made the recipient of one of  the most  Beautiful  nugget chains  we   have   ever   seen.    The   chain  was" manufactured by Eggert & Son  of Atlin, ancl   reflects   great  credit  upon them.    The presentation was  made by Mr. Woods   on   behalf of  the many friends   of  Mr. Moffat on  Friday of last   week.     Mr.   Moffat  expressed   his   extreme   regret   at  having   to'  leave   Atlin,   where he  had spent two of the   best  years of  his life, and   words   failed   him   to  convey his   thanks    for   the   handsome   token   of   respect   from   his  friends.    It was one of the greatest  pleasures in life lo be made' feel tha!  you had the confidence and respect  of those  with whom   you   were  in  dailv- association.  Iicic. GiU.KSViK. 'Prop.
