Johnston, Manager of  the Columbia Hydraulic Co., accompanied by his new superintendent, Mr. Cross, reached Atlin on  Saturday last. They ��� have a number of men now working on the  company's ground getting things  into shape for active hydraulicing  operations, which are expected to  be "commenced in about two weeks.  The Atlin Willow Creek Co., represented by Mr. Frank Brackett,  has commenced the season's operations, and a number of men are  getting the ditch in shape. Considerable fluming will be put in  over the ground on which drifting  work was done during the winter.  Taking advantage of the extremely low water in the Atlintoo  river, connecting' Atlin lake with  Taku arm, Dr; Troughton ha.,  made a public benefactor of himself  and has practically converted the  river into a navigable waterway.  There was 110 time to communicate  with the Government authorities in  Ottawa on the subject in order to  get an appropriation, so Dr.  Troughton sent out a gang of men  at his own expense to blow out the  rocks which have been responsible  for all  the   wrecks   in   the   river.  .;.���;.:-���':';-.-'-7  ���j|  w  *W��I!W* **"  ^^/^��&*^^j^^ AT;..TK,  p���C..

Its Commercial   Value  Than Gold.  Mo:  re  Black Sands of the District Known  to Contain it in More or Less  Quantities.  According to the experience'of  the Hon. C. IT. Mackintosh a company promoter, owning large interests in the Kootenay and Boundary  sections of the Province, British  Columbia minir.g ventures are not  now looked upon in the same doubtful manner as they lately have been  and there is much less reluctance  on the part of the British investor  to give "favourable consideration "  to 13. C. mines. Mr. Mackintosh  says "satisfactory results from  . work in the Nelson and Rossland  districts has restored confidence,  and much English capital will come  in this year. Over-speculation had  injured British Columbia mines,  but the slate had been cleared, and  a fresh start is being made."  In this district,   within   the  last  three years, an amount, aggregating  in round  figures,   $1,000,000,   has  been spent in development work in  hydraulic mining alone, and "it is essential that'some showing be made  this year.     Fortunately, the stages  to   which   the   several   companies  have now   got   their work, almost  insures that, with   careful  management, the   investors, British, Canadian  and   American,   will have no  cause   for   complaint   against   the  Atlin district.      There is, however,'  imperative need of capital .still; the  best ground is still to be found, the  ��� store of placer  ground is  far from  being   exhausted,     while     quartz  mining   in   the district bids fair to  eclipse any other mining section on  the Continent. For this last branch  of the industry, apart from the prospectors   time    on     development,  practically   no  outside  capital has  come into the district.  To capitalists, we say, without  fear, Atlin presents opportunities  for investment for large or small  amounts, such as no other section  of the Province possesses, and withal, L'wer chances of failure���provided caution and ordinary common sense arc used. The field is  yet a virgin one, ' the soil but  scratched--yielding over $2,250,-  000 by sluice-box and rocker���but  the stage has been readied when  the assistance of outside capital is  required to carry on the development work of the district, and the I no figure as yet irr the world's pro-  showing will amply satisfy the  most exacting.  In several of our issues during  the early part of the winter mention  was made of the steadily increasing  commercial value of Platinum and  its associated metals. Now, as  active work is about to be commenced on the different creeks and  as assays which have been made in  the laboratory of the Dominion  (Geological Department, at Ottawa,  have amply demonstrated the fact  that platinum is associated with  the placer gold of this camp in a  proportion which makes it worth  the miners' while to endeavor to  save it. The following extract is  taken from the " Mining & Scientific Press:''  " Platinum is a gray-ivhite metal,  having a   specific   gravity,   when  pure, of   21.5, being   heavier than  pure gold,   which  is  19.3;   but iir  nature, with   the   impurities, they  are   about   the   same.     Platinum,  like gold, is soluble   only   iii aqua  regia (a mixture of   four ' parts   of  hydrochloric  acid ,to one "of nitric  acid J, although it differs  from gold  in this respect, that it dissolves in  nitric acid   when  mixed   with six  times   its   weight   of  silver.'     Its  great value rests in its  infusibility  at a heat that melts   other   metals;  that, with  its qualities of not being  attacked by acids, malleability, etc.,  places it in a realm of non-competition.    The value is today from $iS  to $20 per ounce.   The value varies  with   the    demand    and     supply.  Should   a   new   use   be found for  platinum which would increase the  consumption, as did  the  incandescent   light,^[the   price would jump  up, or should  the  output decrease  the result would be the same.    It  was   first   found   in   some of the  placers in   South   America, mixed  with the gold.    It is now found in  small quantities   in   many parts of  the world.  "Until recently all of the platinum produced was from the placers.  Platinum ore, platinum in the ledge  was not considered to exist. Ore  was not tested for platinum. A  Sudbury, Canada, company, in  testing their ore, found a little  platinum. Since then platinum in  ore has been reported in other  pails of this continent, but it is irr  such  small   quantities that it cuts  Hydraulic   Mining;       ', @.  ** Machinery,  HYDRAULIC   DERRICKS ��� From 3 to 10 tons lining capacity.

Ammonia chloride is added, and  the evaporation is renewed with a  temperature nearly 10�� [?], until  the platiui-amiuoniiun chloride  separates; the solution is diluted  with alcohol and filtered: the platinum salt is placed in a crucible and  healed, to drive off the ammonium  salt, leaving the black platinum.  Care is taken not to heat hot  enough to agglutinate the platinum,  as il interferes with the subsequent  working. The. platinum is all  put through a seive and then hammered into an ingot into a mold.  Some articles are cast, some are  rolled, but the first .quality, are  hammered --- it imparts a different  quality* to the metal. For use in*  the laboratory the hammered crucible or dish will give better satisfaction than the rolled; it has no  chryslalline structure, which the  rolled is apt to assume after being  used."  The value, per ounce, of the metal should be sufficient inducement  to the miners of the district lo ascertain, by assay, whether or not  their black sand contains an  amount of platinum sufficient to  justify them iir saving it.  The following reminiscence of  the Atlin Brewing Co. is taken  from oire of the recent issues of a  coast paper:  " It is not  often   that   the defendant iir a civil action   has   three capiases   issued   against him   in oire  week, yet this  has been- the fate of  E. M. Sullivan,   the   venturesome  freighter.of the  north, who is well  known ' through   British   Columbia  and   Alaska   by   the     cognomen,  ' Black.'     Ben   Wehrl'ritz.   of Vancouver and Atlin, is the  plaintiff in  the action, which arises out of some  disputes  about the Atlin  brewery.  On the first two  Mr. Sullivan was  arrested each time, and as regularly  released  through  the efforts of his  lawyer, IT.  B.   Robertson,    bursas  the     proceedings    were'-evidently,  growing monotonous,  he acted upon the   idea   that  it   was easier to  avoid   these   things  than   to fight  them, and   so   the; sheriff   is still  looking about with the third order  for his arrest uiiexecuted. ���!  If the concern where you are employed is all wrong, and the.

I think if I worked for a man I  would work for him. - I would not  work for him a part of the time and  then the rest of the time work  against him. I would give an undivided service or none.  If put to the pinch, an ounce of  loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.  If you must vilify, condemn and  eternally disparage, why, resign  your position, and when' you are  orrtside, damn to your heart's content. But I pray you, so long as  you are a part of an institution, do  not condemn it. Not that you will  injure the institution���not that���  but when you disparage the concern of which you are a part you  disparage yourself.  More than that you are loosening  the tendrills that hold you to the  institution, and the first high wind  that comes along you will be uprooted and blown away in the  blizzard's track���and probably you  will never know why.' The letter  only says: "Times are dull, and  we regret that there is not enough  work, etc."  Everywhere you find these out of  a-job fellows. Talk with them and  you will usually find that they are  full of railing, .bitterness..and condemnation. That was the trouble,  through a spirit of fault-finding  they got themselves swung around  so they blocked the channel and  had to be dynamited. They were  out of harmony with the concern,  and no longer being a help, they  had to be removed.
