Extracts  from   the  Summary Ee-f  port  of the   Dominion   Geo-  ,  logical Survey Department.  Much of our space during the  last- ��� few months has , been - devoted to reciting the geological and  topographical features of the Atlin  district. To intelligent readers such  a subject must be fully appreciated,  especially when we consider, though  not altogether news to us, it has the  great beneficial'effect of impressing  upon the outside world the valuable  conditions prevailing for the permanence of the camp as a field for  extensive and profitable mining  operations.  We ��� have been favoured with a  copy of the Summary Report for  1900 of the Dominion Geological  Department, from which we make  a few extracts .anent this district.  The survey of the district was completed last fail and the Geological  Surveyor's report contains much interesting air:\ valuable information,  as well as- a complete- geological  map of the Atlin   Mining Division.  The Surveyor's observations confirm in a great measure what has  been said in these columns:  "The rocks of the entire district,  as far as worked out at present, are  roughly, as follows:  ". 1. Sandstones and argillites of  probable Cretaceous age, in the  basins of southern Taku arm and  Atlin lake, with an expected continuation to the south-east by Pike  lake and Nakina river.  "2. The characteristic-rocks of  Pine creek basin are different  varieties of magnesian combinations  together with some greenstones of a  diabasic character. Magnesite, serpentine, dunite, greenstone, actino-  lite slates arrd a very friable gray  limestone are the chief rocks.  These were not seen outside of the  Pine and McKee creek basins excepting in two or three localities  They extend in patches across  Atlin lake westward into Taku Inlet and possibly over towards Taku  arm to a point five miles south of  Toochi river. Another area of these  typical rocks is found about Che-  halis creek, south of Gladys lake.  " 3. Cherty quartzites and various  kinds of clay-slates, together with  patches of gray or black limestone  distributed over the great flats west  of Dawson peaks arrd Gladys lake,  O'Donnel river basin and eastwards  to Teslin lake at its southern errd.  "4. Great masses of crystalline  limestones on northern Taku arm,  Little  Atlin   lake,/ lower O'Donuel  saltic and porphyritic characters, all  about the southern parts of Atlin  lake,, constituting the central portions of most of the groups of fountains' there, and  "6. Granites of the Coast range  at the south end of Taku arm, and  isolated" masses of granite from the  northern end of Atlin lake eastward  across Snrpiise lake and Snowdon  mountains to near Teslin lake, alio  McMaster mountains, east of O'Donnel , river, and the boulder-  strewn plateaus seventeen, miles  eastward, from Ruth lake on. the  Taku trail."  A. 0. D. W.  Atlin lodge, No. 15,  A.O.U.W...Organized in Atlin this Week.  Through the efforts of Mr. R. D.  Featherstonhaugh a lodge of the  Ancient Order of. United Workmen  was organized here on Wednesday  evening last, with a charter membership of twenty.- The immer.se  amount of good this Order has done  throughout' 'the ��� world -is well  -known, ' and-a testimony of there-  spect in which it- is held here is  shown by the enthusiastic, way iii  ���which'it was, takeirup by\promiri-  nie'n ' in Atliii." Mr.", 'Featherstonhaugh', who Ms' a member of the  Grand Lodge, received the necessary authority from the Grand  Lodge to organize here. After the  usual ceremony of organization the  following officers were elected:  P. M. W., Bro. E. M.N. Woods;  M. W., F. L. Stephenron; recorder, H. Young; Financier, R. C.  Trimen; Receiver, A. C. Hirschfeld; Foreman, A. Shiels; Overseer,  \\T. H. Olive.  Regular meetings will be held on  the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of  each month, in the Lodge room,  Atlin Claim Block, Pearl and  First stieels.  MORE MACHINERY.  The Columbia  Hydraulic Company  Sending in a Big Shipment.  ' A. A. Johnson, general manager  of the Columbia Hydraulic Mining  Company, is reported to be sending  in an 83-tou shipment of hydraulic  machinery, to operate on their property on Spruce creek, above discovery. At the moment we are iret  irr a positiorr to give any fmther information as to the company or  its officers.  ! What About the 24th of May ?
