Morjm & Carmichael Accomplish Satisfactory Results from Persistent Work.  Otter creek, which had no little  excitement for some time after its  discovery, has, for the past two  seasons, been abandoned by the  placer-miner, owing to the depth to  bedrock and to the difficulty and  expense of obtaining drainage.  Poi\. hydraulic mining, however,  development has shown that it will  take aiforemost place in the camp's  records of that industry.  The creek, with its benches, lias  been taken up, from the, source to  the mouth, by hydraulic leases.  These are in three distinct groups,  and are each capable of being worked wilhout serious couflicliou with  that immediately below. To Messrs  Morai; Sc Carmichael belongs tlie  honour of- proving- the existence of  an ancient aurile'rous gravel deposit  within the confines of the creek  of a quality and" richness which  augur's'well lor tne prospects of ilie  creek.  From an interview we had with  Mr. Carmichael, this week, we obtained the following information as  to the nature of himself raid partner's development work and the  prospective results :  Their property is situated on the  upper portion of Otter creek, and  consists of 13 leases ��� creek and  bench ��� and extends from half a  mile below the upper canyon to  two miles above. The development work done during the past  winter has demonstrated the area of  payable ground to be of great extent. From the face of a pit,  ground-sluiced out on the Raven  bench-lease during last summer, a  tunnel was driven, which determined the width of the channel to  be 150 feet, carrying values averaging, from surface to bedrock, 77  cents per cubic yard, the gold being concentrated in six .to eight  feet of gravel on bedrock overlaid  by sand aud deposits of loose and  practically barren gravel.. This  over-burden will go before the  monitor like snow under a summer  sun.  On the Crow lease, from a tunnel driven 160 feel in the winter of  1900, Go yards of gravel were taken  this winter which lias yielded 22  oxs. of gold���the dirt was taken  from a breast, 10 by 3 by 2 yards  high���the largest pan of gold, $21.-  50 being found iu a casual pan of  gravel by J. K. Moran. The pay  is iu the lower six feet of black  gravel overlaid by silt and loose  surface gravel, altogether averaging  20 feet in depth.  A shall was sunk in the creek,  on the Snipe lease, aud proved that  below the silt ��� - claimed to be the  bedrock, on which the pay rested,  by the miners of j899���there lies a  second layer of pay, gravel, six feet  iu 'depth, also resting upon-a  layer    of    silt    or    clay. Tlie  values have not been accurately determined, but coarse., colours, up lo  $3.00 in weight, were found in,  every pun. As the surface water '  was very troublesome and time  limited the shaft'was not continued  to bedrock. Willi a little more  work the necessary information  will be available for the installation  of a hydraulic plant.  CREEK NEWS.  Hydraulic  .Companies .��� Begin  Piping.  The Season's Outlook  Very Bright  ���Water Commencing to Rise  :   ���An.Early Start.  "Piping" - with ihe hydraulic  companies seems lo be the order of  the day. This news comes lo us  from the vanuus^Ii'^eks.- ' The  mild weather of this week end has  begun to make things hum, as' far  as water is concerned, and iu the  case of Boulder, where, on ' Monday, all the water in the creek  could have been run through an  or dinar j' sluice-box, today there is  ample to run a 4-iiich giant with  full pressure. Other creeks are in  a similar position.  The Atlin Lake Co., on' Birch,  began piping on Thursday, almost a mouth eailicr than, last  year. The ground being opened  up is said, from prospecting, to be  capable ot paving $5.00 a day to  the man���shovelling���and should,  in consequence, show big returns  uniler the monitor, with a full head  of water. It is lo be hoped that  the present bright prospects will  yield a correspondingly bright,  clean-11 p. Both Mr. Jackson, Manager, and "Charlie" Lambert are  lo be commended on the way they  have rushed matters so that not a  day should be lost when the water  became available.  The Atlin Mining Co., on McKee  creek, begin piping, with two  giants, today. The pressure box  and pipe line have been moved up  600 feet, and piping is being begun on Ihe lower line of discovery  claim. The prospects are excellent  and the Company is justified in expecting big returns.  Ou Boulder creek the Societe  Miniere begins piping today, and it  is anticipated that bedrock will be  reached very shortly. The moment  bedrock is struck, we are prepared  to learn of some large wash-ups, as  Continued on page Four.  ���'i|  Ml  i'^^rp^rTT~^^  ���"^^^^i.^ .   /':  ATLTN.

Saturday,  May 17, 1902  It must be gratifying in the extreme to the well-wishers of Atlin  district to learn ol the excellent results which are. being obtained from  the washing-up of tlie winter  dumps on the various creeks. Our  reference to il last week and the  estimate as lo the output in thai reference is stated on .all sides to be  far loo conservative; we find (hat,  with rarely an exception, miners  aie reaping returns away beyond  their expectations.  Tim days of mere " scratching "  the ground are long gone, and the  class of " toy " miners have been  replaced by persistent and practical  men who -have known how to bide  their time, and these are in consequence reaping their reward. The  fact has been demonstrated beyond  peradventure thai there is still the  possibility of much rich ground yet  to be opened out, aud that - people  are only beginning to realize that  there is today a value in the placer  deposits of the camp altogether 1111-  looked for or unexpected in the  earlier days^f its existence.  "Everything comes to him who  waits, but far sooner to him who  hustles while he waits."  Several' of   the' West ' Indian  Islands Endangered.  Further Reports from tho Scene  of Disastcr-;--Loss of Life Is  Appalling.  An unfortunate misunderstandings seems to have arisen in the  minds of several of the miners who  have imported mining..machinery,  pumps, etc., from the ��States, upon  wliich they were compelled to pay  duty ranging from 25 to 33 per  cent. It has been considered by  many people that "mining machinery" has been placed upon the  " Free " list and that therefore all  machinery of that kind would be  exempt from duty. Tt should be  remembered that the duty is really  put upon machinery in order to  protect Canadian manufacturers aud  with 110 intent of fleecing the users  of mining machinery. The following copy of an oath which is required by ihe Customs authorities,  explains the position in a very few  words:  ,We have   been   fortunate in obtaining   sonic ��� further   information  regarding Die   lerrible volcanic disturbance   iu the West  Indies.     Ml.  Pelee, ten miles north of St. Pierre,  the commercial capital   of Martinique, is   the   mountain,  which fifty  years agvi, showed   faint   signs   of  eruption.    On 3rd inst dense clouds  of black smoke began to issue from  it, while by midnight of  the same  day,' flames broke out, accompanied  by rumbling noises.    On    the   following day hot  ashes, to the depth  of an inch, covered   the   whole city  and made Mt. Pelee   invisible.     At  noon of the 5th a stream of burning  lava, 400   feet   wide, rushed down  the mountain side  aud reached the  sea,    five   .miles   distant,    in  three  minutes.     In   its   rush    the    firy  flood swept from   its   path   plantations, factories, human   beings and  cattle.       At   the     mouth   of    the  Riviera    Blanche    stood   a    large  sugar factory, one   of the finest on  the island;    it is   now entombed iu  lava,   with   nothing   but   the   tall  chimney to mark its site.  During the afternoon cf the Sth,  the British steamer Roddam', which  had left ot. Lucia at midnight on  the 7th for Martinique, crawled  slowly into Castries harbour unrecognizable,, gray with ashes, her  rigging dismantled and the sails  and awnings hanging, torn and  charred. Capt. Whatler reported  having cast anchor off St. Pierre at  S a.m. in line weather, and was  talking to the' ship's agent, whose  boat was alongside, when he saw a  tremendous cloud of smoke and  blazing cinders rushing with terrific rapidity over the city and  port and in an instant completely  enveloping the former iu flame.  Several of the ship's crew were  scorched to death. By superhuman efforts, having steam up,  the. Captain slipped the cable and  the steamer backed from shore, arriving at Castries nine hours later.  rdrau!Ic  ivuru]  3s#  &  nery.  HYDRAULIC   DERRICKS ��� From 3 lo 10 tons lifting- capacity.

Kendall Dolivers His Views  to the ��� London Institute of  Mining' and ATotallurg-y.  As at no very distant dale, with  the variety and extent of our quarlx.  deposits, the question of "ore in  sight" may be a vital one. The  following, from the pen of Mr. J.  D. Kendal!, a well known Mining  , Engineer, is worthy of careful  perusal. Illustrations were given,  but owing to 'our inability to'reproduce them, the reader will have  to draw his own conclusions from  the context:  '.The estimation of ore in sight is  very far from being one ofthe most  difficult matters with which an engineer has to deal. Vet some'of  the most serious losses in mining  have been incurred through errors  in such estimates, and engineers  have, very properly, been severely  censured for, their failures in this  connection. It is therefore proposed  to bring the matter before the Institution ��� with" a ��� view of making-  some recommendations which, if  followed, will in future greatly reduce, if they do not prevent altogether, the losses which have so  frequently arisen iu the past'from  so-called estimates of ore in sight.  ' Definition of Terms ��� Ore  in  sight,  is an expression of veiy common occurrence in reports on mines.  The meaning attached to the phrase  docs   not   appear,   however,   to be  always the same. In some instances  the so-called "ore in sight " is only  "ore  in .imagination."      The former  expression,   if is true", is not a  happy one, for the' uugotten ore in  a mine   can   never   be all  in sight  even   when   "blocked   out" in the  most complete   manner   possible in  ,the regular working of mines.    No  matter   how   small   the pillars, or  masses of ore, blocked out may be,  there   must  always be-a large  proportion   iu   the   interior   of   them  which   cannot   be   seen.    But if a  person   of   experience   can see the  four  sides of a rectangular  mass of  .ore, in a vein, for example, he can,  in the great majority of cases, form  an   estimate ��� not  absolutely accurate, it is true, but sufficiently so  for   commercial   purposes���of  the  quantity   of   ore  contained iu that  pillar.    .He   may in   some cases be  able to do   so   if   he   can only examine three sides of the ore mass or  again even when  only two opposite  sides are  in  view;   but in each of  these cases he will   have to employ  a different   factor of  safety.    This  factor will also vary with the size of  the   mass     under     consideration.  These,remarks may be extended to  ore bodies of other shapes.    Oii the  other   hand,'if   only one   side of a  mass of ore can be seen, it must be  perfectly clear that no one car. tell  what quantity of ore is in that  mass. ��� The side visible may show  a large area of ore, but quantity  of ore involves a third dimension.  If this be wanting, we cannot know  anything   about   quantity.        The  third dimension, so   often   unfortu-  ti  naU'ly assumed, can only be ascertained, with a::- approach to accuracy, by ' blocking out,' so Dial  'ore iu sight' may be looked upon  as svi'i'onvnious with 'ore blocked  out!'  ," by 'blocking out' is meant the  exposure of ore ou two, three cr  four sides of a rectangular or other  shaped .mass. . ft does not mean  simply the exposure of ore by  trenches, tunnels, drifts, winzes  and raise?, but also includes the  exposures that result from denudation.  " Why blocking out is necessary.  ��� Owing to the very irregular  manner .in which ore deposits  usually.occur, no one can, as a rule,  form even an approximate idea of  their extent until. the, boundaries  have been determined by.actual  work. But even if the main or  outside boundaries of a deposit be  known, there is still much to be  learned with regard to tlie inside  boundaries, for most, if not all, deposits contain more or fewer and  larger or smaller inclusions of  co'untry 'rock, or other barren  ground, about which we cannot  know anything until the deposit  has been more or less blocked out.  " Variations also occur in the  quality of ore in different parts of a  deposit, so that the more we see of  it and the more samples we can  take, the more 'likely are we to arrive at the average quality of the  workable portion of it.  "The man who has not, fiom  experience, icaiized the truth ofthe  above statements,, will be apt to permit his fancy to form his facts, aud  so reach conclusions wliich will  most probably be altogether unreliable; for he will assume extensions  that do not exist, continuity where  there may (and probably will) be  great interruption, and uniformity  where there is great variation.  "Illustrations  of erroneous methods.��� fn   a   deposit   of   argentiferous galena, which   occurred in a  vein, and upon which a funnel had  been driven, with three up-raises���  not to   the   surface���the   engineer  of an intending purchaser made an  estimate ofthe ore   in   sight.    Had  the vein   carried  ore at The surface  it would have  been'fairly   safe   to  infer that the ore in the back of the  slopes would extend to the surface,'  but   without   satisfying himself of  the existence of the ore in the vein  at the surface, the engineer referred  to assumed that   the body of ore he  had  seen   iu   the..slopes' would  extend out to " day."    Had he taken  the trouble .��� as be ought to have  done-���lo ascertain what  really was  ou the surface, his  estimate, would  have been   very different from what  Continued on next page.
