Opening cf the Second Sessicn  of the Ninth Parliament.-  Volunteers to South Africa Aet as  Guard of Honour " to Lieut.-  Gov. Sir Kenr-i Joly.  The  first Legislature of   British  Columbia in -this   century, w.fiS formally- opened- at   3   o'clock on the  afternoon   of  February 21st by PI is  Honour   the   Lieutenant-Governor,  in the presence ofa very large number of spectators.    A unique interest attached   to  the-   event  through  the presence of about' forty men of  the different   co'Uingents   for South  Africa   bailing   from  this Pro\ ince.  The appearance of these  strapping  fellows   evoked   the wildest enthusiasm.     Peing at present unattached  to   any   iniiilary'"unit,    and   being  there'iiie   11��    irreg.ilar   force   the  milili.i department would   not sanc-  li mi    the   i^sue of   arms   to   them.  They   p-.ir.nL-d,   therefore,   i;-  t'heir  weather-beaten and serviceable-look-"  ing   kh.iki   uniform, which will   be  forever, associated with   their deeds  ���and   without   arms of any kind.  The   Fifth Regiment, as .usual, furnished tho regular guard, while the  khaki mc:i iorm :d a complimentary  escort on cither   side   of  the center  aisle of ihe chamber, up.which the  I.ieutenav.t-Oovcnior   passed lo the  throne.  The Chaplain for thc occasion  "was the Rev. R. li. Blyth, the new  pastor of the Congregational church  in Vancouver, who naw service  the South African campaign as a  corporal in the Canadian Artillery.  His presence was a departure from  the ordinary procedure and one  which heightened tlie interest of tlit-  occasion.  The   Speech   from   thc  Throne  may be summarized as follows:  The preparation of an address of.  piessiug sympathy in their bereavement by the death of our lamented  Queen, and resolutions (^congratulation to our new Sovereign, King  I'Mward VII on,his accession to the  throne;  A incisure authorizing the conveyance of land grants to the volunteers of the" Province who served  in South Africa;  A. measure, to amend the School  Act;'  A measure for consideration to  offer inducements towards thc encouragement of the, wood pulp industry "in this Province;  The fostering of dairying and  general agricultural pursuits;  I;or the promotion of settlement a  Hill will be introduced having in  view aa extension of the system of  ���"mall holdings;  The question of encouraging and  aiding the building of railroads  fit is to be noted that there is mie  110111 the eotsl to the northern boundary ol the Province); .  Provision was made at the last  session of the Legislature for the  appointment of a commission to enquire into the working of the Mining Acts and much preliminary information has been obtained by the  Department of Mines in anticipation of the commission being used;  bat it having been announced that  the Dominion Government also intended issui ig a commission with  respect to o.ir mineral resources, a  postponement was deemed desirable iu order to ascertain to what  extei.-t these commissions might be  able to co-operate to the advantage  of the Province.  Amendments will be introduced  to perfect, as far as possible, existing mining laws, aud  The Immigration Act will be  further dealt with.  Extensive Operations .

Much has been written and said  about Boulder and more will" be  written and said this coming season;  it has in the past proved itself lobe  the greatest gold-producing creek in  the district and fulurcpnv'pects bid  fair to yield a total far beyond the  expectation of the most sa.jguine  believers.  The best pail of the creek commences a little below Discovery, extending down stream to Ihe canyon,  and il is this giound that "the Big  Parisian," Mr. E. Jaime de Lamare,  has now entirely secured, having  bought out, aL-the remaining interests of the leaseholders and of  Mr. C. Chrictopher.     .  Mr. Latnare  iu   connection  with  Mr. M. Clere, M.IC,'" has  the inlen-  * ,  don of doubling or even tripling the  present hydraulic plant and a season  of great activity will be the result.  Atlin citizens have reason to congratulate themselves "in having a  man like M. de La ma re at the head  of so large a concern, as through  him much French capital will find  good investment in our district.  The shareholders of Mr. de La-  mare's syndicate are most fortunate  and will surely reap a golden harvest. We shall be glad to see the  " Big Parisian "' back; he canno!  come too 3">ou.  .

'  The auriferous gravels of the district are plainly of local origin, ar.d  for the purpose of this brief'sketch  .inutybe divided   into three separate  and   distinct   classes,   according lo  age, viz.: ���      ��� -     .

The  coal is to be .hauled out for the  uiilway company. ��� It- will be given  a thorough test in the locomotives  and if found fit for steaming purposes will be bought, up in large  quantities at good prices.

S. boundary to  the  ���north. ���   With our   extensive mineralized area   and   the indications   at  h'Hid it can   hardly be possible that  .this district has been overlooked.  which the district abounds.  ���  Of   these  .sub-tributary   streams  two  drained .the  mineralized   belt  east of Luke Atlin, and to these^we  owe  the  twin   valleys of' Pine and  Spruce   creeks.       Their     gravels,  yellowed   by   age  andrich in gold,  have   been   uncovered   for miles in  the companion   valleys, and constitute the  main "secondary source of  of- the   placer  gold   found   within  their     areas.

C.  creek has proved practically barren',  vet from this concentration upwards  of $1,000,000 in placer gold has al-  - ready been'won, and the field is by  no manner of menus exhausted.  Where the comsest gold and heaviest nnynels have been found it is  obsorvable that Ihe later stream has  cut down into the old bed-rock for  some little distance releasing and  expo-sin-;- its imprisoned gold, nat-  ui.ills  the coarsest of its kind.  Prom V.tirprise-lake westward the  nre-glacial   stieain   appears to have  f .Mowed, the flank of Spruce mountain,    so   that    the   present creek,  which   bears   further   to the northward, barely skirts its northern rim  until it   reaches the mouth of Gold  Run ' where   the   ancient . stream,  turning   northward,   is   pierced   by  thu later stream.     An earlier run of  Pine appears to have followed Gold  Run itself from the vicinity of Otter  creek    bridge   and   if   its  channel  should be found it seems reasonable  to anticipate   from  it as rich a-con-  centratijn as that characterizing* the  present creek in its later course.' . '",  The   old    valley gravels,    where  practically,.intact   have  a depth of  from 50 to 30 feet, gradually lessening as  the -valley descends, but the  width of the present stream has yet  to   be   definitely fixed.    Neither of  its rims  have   been reached, to my  knowledge, ' either   by   tunnel   or  shaft.    Surface indications give it a  kvown width of two hundred >atds  at least, but it is more than probable  that the glacial uioraii.es lining the  valley cover an   additional  area  of  these gravels equal to, if not indeed  far greater,   than    that  at- present  known.    The   depth of the deposit  together with the great width of the  valley at   this   point, two miles .or  more, would ssem   to indicate that  the   dj;-ositiug  stream   was   or.e of  imposing size.  The values contained in this vast  deposit cannot be estimated with  , any approach to reasonable accuracy. Its gold lies in pockets  throughout the mass as well as on  aud in bed-rock It is extreme!v  coarse iu nature aud should he-  coarser the higher the valley'is ascended. Us true "gutter" if struck  should prove, in my opinion, especially rich and a drifting proposition of the most encouraging kind.  As an hydraulic proposition it offers  many discouragements. The head  '.f.water available at Nugget Point  would not exceed one hundred feet  and would so rapidly diminish as  work progressed that less than one  mile iu the '-'even could be worked,  even if dump were available. From  Nugget Point to the ca lyon the  grade of the present creek is less  than o::e and half- per cent, and lo  elevate tailings would require the  eut're head of water available. The  entire flows of Wright, Otter, Birch,  Boulder and Ruby creeks might as  sist ii. solving the proposition���alter  these 'creeks had themselves been  fully exploited.  Dredging is an alternative. To,  give this most promising field up to  the "dredger "'in its present practically unprospected condition,  would, in my opinion, be against  the best interest of the district.  That it would' prove a most profitable venture is undoubted, but  ihe lime is not yet. A great pi<-  portion of its gold lies in hed-iock,  and much of this would be'lorover  lost to thc* camp once the dredger  passed over'it.  These observations are made that  the camp may judge of the advisi-  bility of takir.;g steps, ere it be too  late, to definitely ascertain and prospect the- old " gutter.'" if found,  and 250 foot claims were the law,  there would be both summer and  winter drifting1 inthe upper valley  for many years to eome.'
