A delegation from the  Grand Lodge is expected to visit  the local lodge during the summer.  Just to show some of the chronic  kickers and sore heads around this  camp that our representative, Dr.  PL E. Young, the Honorable the  Provincial Secretary, Minister of  -Education.and Board of Plealth, is  a live member with the interests of  his constituency always before him,  we print an item "showing'' the  amount of money and other.good  things he has procured for us this  session. ��Of course, ail good citizens  will be pleased to hear the news���  and give credit accordingly..  ��� The amount of the grant is  $15,000.00, an increase of $4,000  over last year.

Telegraph Creek is to get $1,500 for  the building of air hospital there.  They already have a resident doctor  and a schoolteacher. ...-,. '<  Arrd yet some people wonder at  crime, when disgruntled and sour-  stomached individuals get up on  their.hind legs arrd yap and he-haw  about some little personal grievance  that doesn't amount to a pinch of  snuff... There is 110 satisfying some  people, and it.is a waste of time to  try.  In addition to the Doctor's manifold duties he is now acting Minister of Mines,, during the absence of  Premier McBride. He will be coming north just as soon as he can get  away, possibly the first boat.  Special lo Tmc Claim.���William  P. Grainger and Gilbert Joyce are  dead as the result of what is known  among miners as "black damp."  The two men met their death yesterday .afternoon in the southwest  shaft of the Copper King mine, four  miles from Whitehorse. P'or some  days previous a fire had been burning in the shaft "for the purpose of  thawing out a thick coating of ice  which encased its sides, so that an  inspection could be made by mining  experts representing a Pennsylvania  syndicate, which has lately bbirded  the property.  At 12 o'clock yesterday Grainger  and Joyce started dowir the shaft to'  investigate the results of the fire.  On their not returning to the mess  house for 'dinner, Manager Gilliam  started out to investigate the cause,  and after calling down the shaft, ���  which was but fifty leet deep," and  receiving no answer, started down  the ladder. He had gone but a few  feet when he scented the deadly,,  fumes. ' He immediately' retraced  his steps and gave the alarm. A  doctor was sent for, and a gang of  men started pumping the gas from  the shaft. It was 2 o'clock before  the air was sufficiently pure to allow  of the shaft being entered. The  body of Joyce was found lying at  the bottom of the shaft, and that of  Grainger at the foot of the ladder,  which he had grasped with a death  grip. The bodies were found to be  bruised in several places, two of  Grainger's ribs were broken. This  seems to indicate that they were  overcome by the gas while on their  way-up the ladder, causing them to  fall. Striking on the bottom is supposed- to have sufficiently aroused  Grainger to enable him to attempt  to start back up the ladder before he  was finally overcome.  Gilbert Joyce was 30, and leaves  a wife and a six month's' old baby.  He was a native of Newfoundland,  and had started to work but four  days previous to the accident. W. '  P. Grainger was born in Kentucky  some 50 years ago. I-Ie was well  known in the Atlin camp    ,  Lord's Day Observance Act.  TheMorr. the Altorney-Geiieral  stated on the floor of the house just  previous to prorogation: "I may  say that I have given this matter  very careful consideration,'and have  had frequent consultations with my  colleagues, and the decision I have  arrived at is: Not to give assent to  ���any prosecutions'under the act."

Anyone and everyone who has the  interest of the country at heart  wishes to see the 'Japs' ousted,  f f the citizens and miners of the Atlin, district, acted with one accord  the trouble would soon cease to be,  and the matter might be-.passed on  to the Imperial authorities���after  the Japanese were well on their way  home.  tog's:  One  of our well known citizens  received a letter  from   Dr.   Young,  by the last mail, in which the  Doc-  ,tor said:���  "I saw Riifiher the other clay: he  did not say anything to me about  bringing in Japs."  The letter may , be read by anyone who wishes to corroborate this  statement.  Some people in the camp have  been foolish enough to say that Dr.  Young is to blame for the Japs' being'here. Meaning, of course, that  he could have prevented their coming. Nothing could be more ridiculous or absurd. Those who make  such statements know this, but  their endeavor is to say something  mean about our most worthy representative; it makes not the slightest  difference to them how far from the  truth they stray. Their motives are  entirely aside from the Japanese  question. Others have been heard  to say that they knew all about this  invasion long before it becured, and,  when the Japanese did show up  these  'wise  guys'   sagely   wagged  their   heads   aird said:    "H , I  could have told you." Now, we  leave it to the fair-minded; are they  not beautiful specimens of good  citizens. Why under the sun didn't  they warn the people, if they knew  so much? And if they didn't know  the 'Japs' were coming, what a  wonderful set of liars we have in  the camp. Some do love to hear  their own croaking.  It is an easy thing to place the  blame on the absent oire, because  he is not here to answer the charge.  Striking a man in the back is not a  very gentlemanly action.  The government of which the  Doctor is a member has always been  opposed to Asiatic labor. Time  after time measures have beeir  brought up irr the house.to do away  with this vexed question. When  these measures were submitted to  . the government at Ottawa they were  either passed'over or vetoed.  As a matter of fact  it is an international affair and would have to be  to obtai" theni-  submitted to the* Home government  for them to act upon.  Selling  all  these matters  aside,  politics  should   not  be introduced.  The Assay Office.  , Following is a letter from Dr.  Young ackrowledgirr'g receipt of the  petition regarding ihe establishment  of air assay ollice, etc., in Atlin, by  the government:  Victoria, April 24, 1907.  To the LCditor,  Tiik Atlin Ci^alm:  Sir.���I am in receipt of a petition from the residents of Atlin district, praying  that  an assay office,  in connection .with the government  office, may be established; and, further, pointing out the necessity for  a vault being built for the protection  of currency, gold and valuable  papers. ��  In   reply   thereto I beg  leave  to  say  that I. am  heartily  in  accord  with this request, and will do every  thing in my powei to bring it about.  I   regret   that   the   matter should  have come  before the executive at  such a late date, as  the session will  probably close tonight, and the estimates  for   the  ensuing  year   have  passed  the  house.     I 'know however that this is not  the fault of the  petitioners,   as  the  removal  of the  Canadian   Bank  of Commerce was  determined  on  so suddenly and at  so late a date, that the time did not  admit of the petition being forwarded before the estimates were passed.  It is  my   intention,  however, in  view of the urgency  of the case, to  appeal to the government as strongly   as   possible  itr  an endeavor to  bring   about   the   prayer    of   the  petition.  J quite recognize the fact that the  removal of the bank will work a  hardship upon our miners and business men, owing to the fact that the  gold must necessarily be shipped  out <:f the camp and the money  which ordinarily was received for it  will not be in circulation.  J. remain, yours truly,  M. E. YOUNG.  The above letter is indeed satisfactory. We are extremely fortunate in having a representative in-the  house who understands our wants  and necessities so thoroughly and  so intimately. And, what is more  to the point, one who is willing and  ready at all times to advocate these  needs, and   "do all  in   his   power"  In the Iron Store formerly  ,. ^occupied by Stables & Lumsden. ��� , ,  Fanoj and Stable  Groceries and Provision  My Goods are all .Fresh and  .  ���of the best quality.

Once upon a time a newly married lady made preparations  for her husband's meal. She put on  some eggs to boil soon after break;  fast one morning. They were still  on when he came home to dinner.  Upon her husband asking what was  in the saucepan, she answered:  "Eggs for your dinner. They have  been ou since soon after breakfast.  I have tried, them with a fork and  they are not boiled yet." His'astonishment may be left to the imagination. At the mere mention of  eggs a rosy blush suffuses the face  of the bride..  During the rush of '99 a chap  came to Atlin. He pitched his tent  and proceeded to get a meal. He  had a small 'klondike' stove. The  first act was to kindle a fire���in the  oven. After several vain attempts  to get the lire to burn, he sought  the advice arrd assistance of a nearby camper. The cause of the trouble  was located at once and the use of  the fire-box explained. "Awh! by  jove! How clever! what a stupid  ass f must be, doiicherknow." said  the new-comer.' And the other fellow smiled.  of the family at,home? . "No, .they  are all out." "Well, wasn't there  a fire here last evening?" "-Yes,"  said the gill, with a smile, "but  that's out too."  Some Big Figures.r  An estimate ol the quantity of  timber which will be cut in the lor-  ests of Ontario during the winter of  1900-7 has been made by the officials of the department of lands, forests arrd mines ol that province. Lt  is believed that more lumber will be  taken out this spring than >vas taken out last season. " -  It is said that the lumbermen will  fell 1,000,000,000 feet board measurement of pine, 70,000,000 of hern-,  lock, 1,500,000 of spruce, 1,250,000  cubic feet of square timber, 100,000  cords of pulp wood, and 4,500,000  railway ties.' The activity in railway construction throughout the  country has created a great demand  for ties, and the production in Ontario will iir consequence increase  this year.  The Forestry Association has  now reached a membership of 1,222,  a gain of 870 irr less .than five years.  The work now affects over 7,200,-  000 acres of Dominion lands. 'The  government it is said, is to be. urged  to reserve ten per cent of wooded  lands in order to prevent the complete denudition: Nine million  trees have been planted iir the Western provinces, and all but five per  cent of these have thrived. ���  Timber is in enormous demand  ���just now. One man is advertising  in the daily press that he warrts one  billion feet of timber at once. This  modest request is echoed by scores  of would-be investors, and the timber brokers are all busy looking up  timber lands for clients.  tv  ��> .y> j&  ffM        ��0**        *$*  nn  1  ATLIN TRADING  , ���   CO., LD. ���  FULL LINES OF  NOTICE.
