On Thursdny morning lust Gurret Lienigu  shot und seriously wounded Fred Baur.  The  deed Wus committed about a mile and a half  from  Atlin  on  the Watson  avenue road to  �� ���  Discovery. -   >  The morning of thetrajred.\ Fred Ma iir arose  and ufter cooking his breakfast went to the  tent of his neighbor. Gurret Liemsrn, about  five feet cli��tmit. und tried to urouse him.  The latter slept very souiid'aud Baur, probably in a boyish prank, caught him by the  leg und tried to pull him out of his sleeping  bag. Lieniga on awakening became very  angry and told him it he ilid not stop he  would shoot him. With.this Baur lett und  went into his own tent, not thinking the re-  iiiitrk anything more tliuu a cranky expression. Comiiifr out of his tent a moment  Inter lie found Lieniga standing iu front oL  his own tent with a shotgun in his hand.  When he seen Baur he said. "I will shoot  jou." Realizing that Lienigu was very  angry and that he evidentlv meant to keep  his word Baur endeu\ered to escape. He  tried to dodjje round the tent out'ot sijrlit.  Just us he did Lieni^ra iireil, part ot the shot  teurin^r tliroujjh the corner of the tent. The  charge struck Baur in the rifrht side of the  face und litterh riddled his head und hut.  Two jri-ains entered the ball of the rijrlit eje.  How far the> penetruted into the head the  plnsicutii could not ascertain u ithout piob-  m^r. The others lodjreil in the skull. As  soon as Lienitru suw w hut he hud done he  ran to Baur und suid he would }ro for a doctor, mentioning Dr. Humbert's name.

In reply to our editorial note of  last week Dr. Monro, in a letter  published elsewhere, disclaims anv  responsibility for the care of the  destitute'sick in this district. He  '���points out the act which instructs  him in his official duties.  Mr. Graham, we are informed, is  prepared--to act on the part of the  government, and will do a certain  amount to insure the proper care of  these people. But while he is prepared to assist he will not undertake the full responsibility and investigate all cases. Now that the  citizens of the town know the exact  i 1  position of the officials they should  take immediate action and organize  ,11 representative committee, whose  duty ,it shall be to take charge of  all funds donated and see that they  are dispensed in a proper manner.  While we believe that it is the  duty of the citizens to see that none  suffer for want of care, they should  not be called upon to provide for  people who'are in'a position to pay.  By careful investigation on the part  of a committee this "can be avoided.  It is urged in some quarters that  many of these people are destitute  before they depart for this' district,  and it is asked should tlie citizens  or government be compelled to provide relief for them. The foregoing may be true, yet we cannot  afford to have it go out to the world  that the sick have died for want of  care, as has been the case recently.  Therefore, citizens, give as your  means will allow.  government, a word or two 'might- bo said.  \\lont of the patients .troated there were  those who were unfortunate' enough.to lie  without available funds when taken ill aud  hud to be taken there, for the simple reason  thut they could not get in anywhere else.  Such patients I treated gratuitously.  The new hospital on the corner of Traynor  uud Third streets is a private institution,  built with private funds and not supported  to the extent of a five cent, piece by the Provincial Government or civic authorities.    ���  Before indigent cases will be admitted to  the Atlin City General Hospital a guarantee  must be given either by the Government or  a reliable committee of the citizens thut the  cost of maintaining,these patients will be  defrayed or else they cannot be taken in.  The cost of maintaining an institution ot  this kind will not be less than from ���jRlll) to  SSIKI per mouth. If half or more of the entire number of patients were unable to pny  for their hare hospital care, where would  the hospital be? In the hole, of course. A  first class hospital-trained nurse is now on  her way iu here to take charge uud before  another week passes over the hospital will  bo ready to receive patients.  In a new country like this, so fur removed  from the outside world and where it takes  'weeks or even months to got word down to  und back 'troni the government, valuable  time is apt to be lost before something is  done iu the way of alleviating the deserving  sick and destitute, unless the citizens generally take hold of the mutter und put this  work ou u sound tinuuciul basis. This is not  the work ot one muii, nor should the burden  fall upon a few , but it is the duty of every  citizen to assist iu some way iu caring for  the destitute sick iu our midst.  A. S.

To the Editor of the Claim :  Sir,���1 was glad to see your article draw -  ing attention to the sanitary question of this  city in your last insue. And iu endorsing all  you suid I think that we should grapple with  the disease before we try to find a cure���und  to speak plainly the disease lies in people being huddled together without conveniences  ot any kind. And this too on waterfront  makes the question most grave, and should  betaken up by the health officer without a  moment's delay. Now, sir, on every-'large  civilized goldtaeld people on the trail are  not allow ed to camp in the tow n proper, but  are compelled to go ou the outskirts und  why s.ioulil teamsters and others be allowed  to camp all along tne lake front, not only by  their actions polluting tlie water, but disgustingly exposing tnemselves without or-  dinury sense of decency thut it is not safe for  a decent woman to go outside her door.

Our Correspondent/Billy' Tells us
How Freeman Suicided.
What People Asked  Him When
He Called for Subscriptions.
Pine City, Sunday, April 111).—(By horse cable.)—Two men started out for Pine City 011
Sunday, one on evangelization and the other
on bothersome insistence—subscription to
the Atlin ClMlM. I don't know- hovv'the rev.
gentleman "punned" out; he didn't .take mo
into his confidence. One member of tho congregation told me that silver wus so plentiful in Pino City that the recipient of the collection had winked his wish ut its abolition
and huve gold dust ia its stead. And then
again'it was to bulky for transit by horso.
"If we 'are going to keep out alinns we
should likewise keep out the baser alien
money and make the medium gold," he
concluded. As to subscriptions f did nobly.
1 did more business than business did me.
Hv a thorough canvas-, I'found out thoex-
uct number of Stickmu ''stickers" tempting
fortune by the 'all-Canadian route to the
moon. They number two or throe, good fellows all, but they overloaded themselves
vv ith pvapoi ated vegetables. They also mastered the "verb" to perfection.
A little H by 1(1 tent, between two log cabins,
n smokeless chimney and a log to bar eu-
truueo told the world that silence wus within and no answer came .to the knock when
jour correspondent sought news about the
Pine Citj tragedy. Passers bj- referred me
to another tpnt and there I found Mrs. Freeman.
"I take exception to the statement thut deceased vv as liv ing w ith me at Pine Cit.v," she
hnid, at the same time kicking a box w hereon a stove rested. "He wus not. I huve been
living alone ever since vve mutually agreed
to separate three years ago. We separated
ut Skuguaj'. We couldn't get along together.
He went south to California uud T came to
the Summit. He is a native of Modoc, Cal.,
and :i'l years of utxe, and has n brother in
Skuguay. He located some claims on Pine
and Spruce last year and disposed of a half
interest to people in Dyea. The first I knevv
of his presence in the country was one day
last week, w hile on my vvuj to Atlin. T met
him at the foot of the Big Hill. So sudden
und unexpected w us the meeting thut for the
nonce T forgot myself and -spoke first. He
spoke also. We both conversed uud then he
asked me to sit dow u ou the edge of the road
and talk over old times. I told him he wus
not a fit man for any woman to sit dow n
vv ith ou u road's edge. He had better go to
tow ii. He went vv ith me to Atlin. I left him
there and came back thut evening. Next
day he came to Pine City, and asked to be
allowed to enter m> tent. I refused. I told
him that I wanted to be left in peace; that
the tent was mine and did not vv ant to see
him any more. He went awaj und in about
an hour he returned. This time he did not
vv ait for an invitation. He stepped iu and us
he 'did he suid: 'So jou won't let nip in, eh:
well it's ull off, aud us he suid this he pulled
u gun out of his pocket, placed it over his
left nipple und fell backward, deud."
He wus buried on Sunduy and is the first to
rest on the hill back of Discovery street. A
lay man read the service. A coroner's inquest returned a verdict of death bj u weapon
iu his ow n hands.
W. G. Covvden and 1). M. Owens came in
from Surprise Lake Sunday. About UK) people are bunded together' in that vicinity uud
cabins are going up all around. The trails
are iu jirettj good shape and they go back
soon to do work ou their claims.
Frank Britton lias been dubbed the Swiss
guide to Pine. His eugerness to pilot strangers and^ show them the riches of the cump
deserves the name. He'll pan while jou
vv ait.
Mrs. McNeill, fnrmerlj of Vancouver, who
came iu with Mrs. Muckav iu February, is
getting nearer to the gold belt, and iu future
w ill reside in Pine.
Dr. Johnson is ono ot the pioneers of Pine.
"Come in," lie said, "and let us become acquainted. Pine City is the name of this
burg and not Discovery, as published in Thk
Claim." He brought out one of the original
surveys uud bucked up vv hut he suid. I miidp
n note of that and in my future w ritiugs I'll
write it Pine City. The doctor is an alien
uud u miner, but his better half is British.
Mis. Johnson knows a rock when she sees it,
and predicts thut the future quartz discoveries vv ill be the permanency of the camp.
r w as asked ull sorts of questions vv hile out
for subscriptions: "Why don't you hyphenate jumper to your Claim and make it fit
tho country."   I Atliuuted him.
'■I'm an alien and can't buy a Claim," was
another. "They have taken all mj claims
und I've no surety on'this."
"A year's subscription is" too tar uwuj,"
said a woman with her head out of a tent.
"I may be dead by thut. time." I asked her
for. her address, whether 'hove or below, and
she   wineiiigly   replied wjt h her iudc.\ linger
downward;   "I'm going up to Sinison creek
and thou I'll let you know."       l ' -
<   ai      " T    '      -„     '" \"
"I biiilt the first house in Pine and brought
through tlie first keg of whisky," said Chas.
R. Oubridge ut Pine City.  "I came in with
Captain Cartvv right of the Mounted Police
on a tip that gold hud been found und wus of
the belief that it was Northwest territory.
We cume dow u the Too-chi and shot the Atlin
rapids."   He leaves for the outside in a few
days und expects tolie back before the lake
collapses. , > Hilly.
