Russian losses are estimated at -over 155,000, and Japanese losses at *i 1,000."  St. Petersburg, ��� March 12th;���  ^Russia is determined to curry 011  the war. Orders have been issued  for the mobilization of snore troops.  Kuropatkiii has  asked  the   Fm-  ]jcror for permission   to   hand over!  his command, alleging   the  urgent  need of physical and mental rest.  St. Petersburg, March 1:3th: ���  Kuropatkiii admits that 50,000  were wounded during the last few  days. The Japanese have been receiving large reinforcements; Gen.  Nogi had almost entirely fresh |  forces.  New' Chwang, March -13th:���  A Japanese officer from'Mukden  says that the Russian soldier's are  surrendering in constant streams ;  they .'come'kneeling and beg for  mercy from their victors.  Berlin, March 13th :'��� A St  Petersburg- despatch declares, that  further mobilization is impossible.  The number of men required is  estimated at half a million, and any  attempt to mobilize this number  would lead to disaster and further  complicate the critical state of affairs hi interior Russia.

Two officers of the latter report  that they are the only survivors  who remain to tell the tale.  A Japanese force is reported to  be approaching Vladivostock,  This gives rise to tfae belief that  a siege of that place is contemplated.  St. Petersburg, March 1,5th.:���  The peasant movement is spreading into the northwest provinces  of Russia. Serious disturbances  are reported.  Paris, Marcli i6th:--The postponement of the kst Russian loan  of #120,000,000 has been definitely  announced. This will likely exert  si powerful influence towards peace.

Kuropatkiii   was  surprised '  on Tuesday night and had to abandon   his Kan  River   positions, having   to   leave   hurrickly,   and was  and points out the hopelessness of'  achieving conclusive results until  Russia has overwhelming; forces in  the Hast.

According to the new Bill, the!  people of Atlin would have to raise  $700 ' towards the support of the  School, the Government contributing t'he balance, whereas, heretofore, the Government -have borne  all expenses, paying the teacher's  salary and incidental expenses,  amounting, in all, to $1,300.       c  Mr. W.

The following summary of the Geological conditions in the Atlin  District is in part extracted from the reports of J. C. Gwillim, B. S. C,  late of the Geological Survey of Canada. The general geological  features of the Atlin District present -great encouragement to prospectors, as there-are numerous contacts of rocks of different geological  eras, -and dykes of igneous rocks penetrating tiie older formations.  flacfr  'FonKRafioms. -  The rock masses forming the basins of the productive gold bearing-  creeks of the District belong to the Palaeozoic period and embrace tfhe  magnesium rocks oi Pine, Spruce, Birch, Lower Boulder, Otter and  Wright Creeks;: the Biotite slates of Upper Spruce, Otter and Wright  Creeks; and the A-ctimolite slates of Upper Birch, Boulder and Ruby.  Creeks.  Erupliwes.  Surrounding this era we have rodk i'onmation-soi'th-e Mesazoic and  Palaeozoic periods, and a small .area at the head of Ruby and Volcanic  Creeks of the Ceuozoic period.  G5i>anite5~  From a range of liiEls culiiminaling -m Minrro M-own'tani, bounding  Dower Picae Crock to the aiorth-west. we have a Jaige :a.rea -of .granite  which extends beyond the dimwits of Atlin Lake, also a lless extensive  area west, north  and east of Sin-prise Lake,  and  isolated  intrusions  throughout the District.  Limestone.  Carboniferous limestone, generally crystalline in cbaracl-er, forms  mountain masses to the north -awd west of Momiit Minto, .also the  ranges on bot-h skies of Taku Ami, for 20 miles southward from Tagisb  Lake; the limestone also occurrs in irregular patches and bands in the  Biotile slates and ^uartziteson the divide between'Otter and Wright  Creeks at the contact of the Biotite slates wit'll the niagnesiiwn rocks of  Spruce Mountains and forming tli-e Laurie. Range, west of Dixie Cr-eek.  '". Granite.  Granite porphyry -of Birch Mountains on Teresa Island, and  Cathedral  Mountain, at the head of Teresa Cbannel.  Porphyry.  Porphyry, andesite and basalt occur as ranges to the south and  west of Atlin Lake-  Sandstone, Conglomerates.  Sandstone sand  conglomerates -surround   the .soutbern s'hores of  Atlin   Lake,   and   forna  mountain  masses   between -'Taku  Arm  and  Atlin Lake.   ���  ���Quartzites  The distribution of cliirty quartzites is very wide between  Atlin  and Teslin Lakes, Consolation Creek, the basin of Gladys Lake and  River and other areas in and around Sucker River.  The meeting of the incmbers -of  the committee appointed 'to 'collect  funds .towards establishing a memorial to the 'late ."Mr. -Fritz Miller  was held at the Court _-H011.se on  Thursday last. Mr. J. A. Fraser  was appointed .cliaintnaii, and the  secr-elar}'., Rev. F. I,. Stephenson,  presented his financial T<eport. A.  total of .-$74-8.25 has been raised,  and .the object of the ��� meeting was  to arrange ihe form ;the memorial  was te take. The action of the  comini.ttee, formed of the chairmen  of the several colLeoting>comniiUees,  was confirmed ;in respect to the  proposed memorial taking a double  form., viz.: part of;the fund to be  applied to the erection of a suitable  headstone at the grawe of the late  discoverer a>nd a ipart applied to the  fouudingof a Fritz Miller Memoriail  Fund, to be applied to .the building  of an operatingiroom at theHospital.  A resolution was passed, setting-  aside the sum of $500 for the purchasing and erection of .a monument  at the grave, and the -secretary was  instructed to procure .quotations on  a polished Scotch .g.ranite as well as  a Coast granite stenefrom 6 to 8 ft.-  high, aisd a committee formed of  Messrs. K-occo. Koford, Gapt. Ha-  .thorn, J. A. Fraser .and Sam Johnr  stone, with tb.e secretary-treasurer.,  Mr. F. L. Stephenson, was appointed to order the stone .and attend to  the erection of the same. Messrs.  Canceller and Carmichael spoke  against spending such a large portion of tke fiiiiid on a stone, when  an operating ward, so much .required at the Hospital, would form-  .sucii a fitting and worth}' memorial to the late discoverer, but  Messrs. Koford, *Rose, Woods.  Johnstone and others emphasized  that the stone, if any was to be  erected .at all, should be large and  of the best material, and JS500 was  the, least .amount that could be  spent upon it. In .this connection,  .the secretary reminded .the.meeting  that flic Pacific Coast Steamship  Co. and the White Pass .& Yukon  R. R. had both offered to transport  the stone practically free of charge,  so .that .the bulk of .the $��00 would  be available for tiie purchase .of a  stone at the Coast.  A resolution was also passed-thai  flic balance of $250 .be applied to a  fund to erect an operating room ru  fhe Atlin Hospital, to be called the  Fritz Miller Memorial Operating  Ward, aihd that further subscriptions be solicited by the members of  the original committees to sw.eif'i  tiiis amount.to the required $700.,  .the estimated cost of .the irootn.  The AtHn Claim was asked to give  notice that the Memorial "Fund ic  still open and allnvho have not already subscribed (havestill that op-  portuuity. .AIT amounts now received will go'to t'he building ol '.he-  operating -ward.
