For an  hour or so Atlin had a liverlier  lime yesterday than it has for many  a day, and a finer and huskier lot  of men never got together. Iii all  there must have been about a hundred and fifty men. The company  ���was acting- -under 'the'instructibns"  of a committee of five, headed' by  Mr. Ward of Discovery.  After luncheon, a conclave was  held opposite the l-'.oyal Hotel, and  at its termination, the order was  given to "fall in; single file," to  march on down to McKee creek  and there interview Mr. Jap. As  to the outcome, we cannot hazard  an opinion, but feel assured that  neither laws or heads will be broken, and that "good-bye, my little  friend," is not at all improbable !  Anticipating trouble, the Government Agent, Mr. E. J. Thain, took:  the precaution  to  swear--in twelve  special  constables, who, if occasion  requires,   are to hold themselves ii  readiness for any imniergency. -  -. A meeting was held in the hall  of the Grand Hotel, ou Saturday  evening last, to hear the report of  the. Committee appointed at. the  previous evening's meeting to confer with Mr. R. D. Fetherston-  haiigh re the importation of Jap;  anese labour. ....  Mr. J. A. Fraser was called to  the chair and reported the result of  the interview with Mr. Fetherston-  haugh, which was, that that gentleman acceded to the terms of the  resolution adopted, at Friday's  ''meeting, and agreed to carry the  same into effect, viz.: that the  Japanese now coming under contract be sent back by June 1st, and,  in the event of any other Orientals  being imported, that he will send  his own gang to intercept and turn  them back.  11 was  niMved  by Mr. Klrkland,  seconded    hv   H.

Saturday,  Mar.,  22,   ujo;  The recent convictions for smuggling" good's into Atlin are not without a moral.   The days when it was  considered 110 sin to cheat the Gov-  " eminent out'of its customs and re-  ��� venue taxes ' arc long gone, and in  .this enlightened age the penalty  provided    for   smuggling   is by no  '������ means too harsh. As far as Atlin  is concerned, the evil of the practice  affects chiefly-those whom wc most  ���'desire 'to 'sec protected���the merchants���who ''have a hard enough  lime as'it'is, without contending  against'lhis" unjust   practice.    The  " "Government, has enacted wise laws  - aud imposed penalties for their infraction '"its ' officers arc bound lo  see that these laws arc rigidly upheld.' In.the present instance Mr.  John Williams, as Deputy Collector  of   Customs,-,   deserves   the     most  ' grateful   commendation   from   the  - merchants ,and ��� citizens of the district for carrying out his duty towards his employers and the people.  ��������� He has ever proved himself as a  zealous aud painstaking oflie'ral,  ���while his diligent attention " to his  many duties has earned for him the  ���goodwill . and   the   respect   of the  .cbmmunitv.  DUMPS.  What the Winter's Work on  Spruce Has Shown.  New , Developments   of    an    Old  Theory -'..._ Sluicing'  Will Be-  ������    gin Vory Soon.  Wii arc glad to see that at least  one of our members in the local  House is not altogether hiding his  light under a bushel this session.  From the "Orders of the Day,"  we note that Mr. Stables, M.L.A.,  on the 4th inst, asked leave to  move the following resolution:���  That an Order of the House be  granted for a Return setting forth  the following information:���  1. The   number- of     hydraulic  ��� leases granted in   the- Atlin district  since'-the.gth of August, 1900;"  2. The. '.number of applications  for hydraulic , leases   refused since  ' the 9th of August, 1900,   with reasons for refusal;  3."The   amount   of revenue deprived from.leases  granted since ist  of January, 1S98;  4. The number of leases cancelled since 1st of January,. 1898;  5. The .number of lay-overs  granted since 1st of January, :89s,  with reasons for granting such layovers, and the amount of revenue  derived from same;  6. The" number of extensions of  time applied for (if auy)r and the  reasons advanced for asking same.  7. The names of all leases upon  which assessment work has been  done.  ]  Incompliance with the requirements of this resolution the local  office   staff   here  may   have  their  Drifting operations ou Spruce  creek show signs of having .somewhat slackened ofi'' of late, dump  ground in most cases being more or  less al a premium, and the promise  of air early spring suggesting to  many of the miners a slight interim  of well-earned rest.  A goodly array of very promising looking dumps line the creek at  intervals from No. 90 to 123 below,  the bulk of whose material appears  to'have been derived 'from the cement gravel of the so-called yellow or  priiuary'ruh.  The' winter's 'development work-  has shown up several interesting  facts in connection with this portion  of the creek, so far iis richest. The  cement run has been shown to cut  off short at No. 104 on both sides  of the creek simultaneously, a drop  of some 20 feet in the bedrock here  occurring as if to emphasize the  mystery of its disappearance.   .  The direction of  flow ol this tertiary   channel   is'as  yet somewhat  conjectural.     It   appears,  however,  to have been   running   northerly---  the course of  the present creek���at  this point of abrupt  disappearance;  and, if so, may eventually   be   uncovered   again   on the Steverrdyke  property, as predicted by Mr. Robertson, the Provincial Mineralogist.  That this was iis couise seems  apparent from   the   fact that not only  was the present creek bed especially  rich at 104, but in hollows it showed the cement gravel  in place ou a  much decomposed   bedrock.    As it  has been now shown   to be flanked  on either   side   by the   old deposit  resting on a higher   level   of   bedrock   il  seems   probable  that the  present  stream' occupies the gutter  of the old stream at this point, thus  suggesting a   similar  or   northerly  direction   of   flow   iir    the ancient  stream.  A   second   interesting    development is   the   uncovering  of an old  run of   the   present   creek,   which  seems to  indicate  that at one time  its course was more direct than the  sharp     right    angle   turn   it   now  makes. between  So audi 10.    This  run has been  encountered in a tunnel on 106, some 40   feet in, on the  west side, and   is   said   to join the  present   creek just below 104.    Its  wash has also been met with on the  east   side,    directly   opposite    this  point.    SeveraL tunnels  have been  here run in, the bench bedrock being some 20 feet  lower than that of  the yellow deposit where it  gives  out   immediately   above.    Two  of  these tunnels struck the east rim of  this run when 100 feet  in,.showing'  that it was a!so  deflected northerly  at this point.
