Hinchcliffe left Atlin last  Thursday on a combined business  aud pleasure trip lo the coast cities.  She intends coming back to camp  shortly after navigation opens.  Holmes Pineo has cast in his lot  with Mr. C. R. Bourne, our local  druggist. Holmes has already served part of his apprenticeship to the  business, and intends, under Mr.  Bourne's supervision, to complete  the study.  We are glad . to note, that Mrs.  Jules Eggert, who slipped on the  ice some weeks ago and broke her  arm, has resumed her household  duties again. The injured arm is in  commission but care will have to be  exercised lor a time.  Under the "Provincial Elections  Act" the'following to be Commissioners for taking affidavits in the  Supreme Court: Hugh Molyneaux,  James Regan and John Gibson, of  Atlin; Geo. Kerr, M. R.

Py*man, of  Spruce. .   ;  Secretary Phillips, of the Grand  Trunk Pacific, while in Vancouver,  recently, said it was nothing but  newspaper talk that the company  would abandon Prince Rupert for  North Vancouver as the western  terminus. "Il looks as if Vancouver was getting anxious over its  own , position," said Mr. Phillips,  who asked in reply if it was reasonable to suppose that the Grand  Trunk Pacific would abandon a  point it had- already done so much  to improve? ' It is ridiculous,"  said Mr. Phillips.  Quite a number of Allinites may  be seen working in their gardens  these fine days. .Judge Young and  A.-S. Cross have a lay on a piece of  ground fronting Second street. .Nat  Wheeling is busy in two places.  Charlie Bourne has his seeds in and  is awaiting events, Sam Johnson  figures on planting Conemara yams  and bananas. A. M. Ross is going  to raise something even if its only a  disturbance.  The Nugget hotel dining rooms  at Discovery, have been re-opened  under the management of Mrs. S.  Cash. This lady's skill as a cook  is well and widely known throughout the entire district. The dining  room and kitchen have been overhauled and renovated and present a  'spick aud span' appearance.  Johii McLennan, who had his eye  injured at the beginning of the year,  aud removed last February, left for  Vancouver last Thursday afternoon,  where he will have the eminent eye  specialist Dr. Campbell treat him.  Mr. Arthur Dick will accompany  him to the coast, and W. B. Conroy  will see them as far as Cariboo. , It  was thought necessary by Drs. Harrison and McCoukey that Mr. McLennan should have the specialist  look after him in order to preserve  the sight of the remaining eye. A  subscription list ivas started around  and promptly and generously responded to. Dr. Harrison and Sam  Johnson walked over as far as Taku  vvith the travelers. John's many  friends will eagerly await news of  his arrival at Vancouver and his  condition while there. All will join  iu a heartfelt hope that he will return to camp in a good working  condition at an'early dale.  Messrs. Auld, McCulloch, Stanley. Johnson and Clarke, who have  been driftingall winter at the mouth  of Gold Run, have put but a very  large dump, showing they were not  wasteing time underground. The  prospects taken from time to time  would indicate that the boys have a  'good thing.' We sincerely hope  this will be the case. They will  sluice the dump into the Run and  then continue drifting operations  during the summer, sluicing into  Pine creek. Mr. Burnett, who is  just below them on the point, will  be starting to work soon.  John Riplinger!,, formerly comp-  trollerof Seattle, and republican candidate for mayor at the last election  has been charged with embezzlement of $20,000 of city funds.  The Rev. John Watson, D.D.,  lamed as "Ian McLaren," the pseudonym under which he wrote "Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush," and  other stories, died suddenly while  on board train en route to Mount  Pleasant, Ia. An abcess caused  blood poisoning of the brain.  Longboat, the famous Indian runner has brought Canada!s name to  'victory and to fame by capturing  the Boston Marathon. . He broke  the course record, covering the distance, 25 miles, in 2.24.20 1-5.  Longboat came home alone, aud his  time was more than five minutes  faster than the record of 2 hours 29  minutes 23 3-5 seconds, established  by John Caffery, of Hamilton, when  he won this race for the second lime  in tq'oi.' He finished strong and  in no way distressed,' though the  effort was probably pretty nearly the  limit of his powers. His supremacy  was never challenged at any point  except about the 21st mile, where  Charlie Petch, the eighteen-year-old  Toronto boy  was leading him.   tat .   The death of Dr. Drumrnond deprives Canada of a singularly gifted  son. His kindly muse was both  robust and homely. Many of his  ' Habitant" poems are permanent  additions to Canadian literature.  His books are looked upon as an  essential part of any camp equipment. He wrote of Canadians for  Canadians. His field was his own.  As a sympathetic interpreter of  French-Canadian rural life he stands  unapproached. His untimely death  came as a grevious shock to the  whole nation.  Drummond's  last  poem, read  at  St. Pa'rick's Day banquet.  Iiis eye may never see the blue  Of Ireland's April sky,  His ear may never listen to  The song of lark on high;  But deep within his Irish heart  Are cloisters, dark and dim,  No human hand can   wrench apart,  And the lark still sings for him.  We've bowed beneath  the chastening rod,  We've had our griefs and pains,  But with them all we still thank God  The Blood is in our veins;  The ancient blood that knows no fear  The Stamp is on us set,  And so, however foes may jeer,  We're Irish yet! We're Irish yet.  McDonald's Grocery makes a  specialty of fresh eggs and butter.  NOTICE.  TAKU NOTICIJ that I Louis Sehitlz, of  the town of Atlin. 15.

What thoughts it brings  back .to the mind. . Memories of  the frolics and amusements of our  youthful days, and later the partici-  ' pation iu the outdoor games and  manly sports of our country and  time. The old school jingle: "The  24th of May is the Queen's birthday, if we don't get a holiday we 11  all run away," is still ringing iu  our ears.  Surely the citizens of Atlin will  bestire themselves to luark.the passing of the day so celebrated, so  famous, and so revered from its  associations. The airangemeiit of  some few sports or contests among  the juvenile members of the community would take but little time or  expense and would tend to keep  up the traditions and customs of  our native land.  while'less active   than' usual,  has  proved himself the' natural leader of  his party on more than one occasion,  aud is becoming at once more dexterous   and   more   serious   in   the  handling   of   important   questions.  The finance minister has borne the  brunt of the battle and has revealed  unexpected qualities of firmness aud  statesmanlike1 grasp   in  more than  one difficult situation.    Il is no disparagement of his colleagues to say  that at   the   present   moment   Mr.  Tatlow   is   the   strong  man   of the  party.    The leader of the opposition  and his capable assistant,  the member  for   .Delia,   whilst   lacking   the  vim   which  has distinguished them  in previous sessions have  done well  and t have   proved    themselves    as  skillful  and   resourceful as ever in  debate and in   the handling of par-  liamentry rules,   no doubt they are  not a little proud  of having scored  one or two points over  the government iu the  interpretation of rules,  a triumph for which' they are largely indebted   to  the  able support,of  In the Iron Store formerly  ' occupied by Stables & Lumsden.

KONRAD   WaWRRCKA,   MANAGKR.  The B. C. Legislature.  Iu   commenting   on   the  British  Columbia legislature  and  the work  done, The Week, of Victoria, says:  "Rarely, if ever,   in   the history of  the B. C. legislative assembly has a  session   been   more thoroughly devoted to business.   It is also worthy  of comment that the tone of the debates  has  been   uniformly   upon a  high   level,  the  only  exception  to  this is in the case of Comrade Haw-  thornthwaite whose recent political  affiliation finds him unchanged, an  Ishmaelite,   whose  hand  is against  every man, the vaporing demagogue  who sometimes accidentally says a  good   thing,   but  who  iu the main  works  off volumes of hot air to no  purpose; a veritable twentieth century   Gratiano,    with   his   grain  of  wheat to his bushel  of chaff,   "and  his infinite deal of nothing."  Men who have made their mark  on the session, aud thereby enhanced their reputation, are Dr. Young,  lvthe new provincial secretary, H. B.  Thompson, the junior member for  Victoria; W. J. Bowser, I-I. C.  Brewster, and the socialist membet  for Grand Forks, Mr. Mclnuis.  All these have made notable contributions to parliamentary debate  and will do more in the future. In  the ministerial rank the  premier,  the member for Yale. Altogether  the province is to be congratulated  ou having a thorough business government aud a decidedly able opposition. ' Thanks to both the statute  book is enriched by the University  Bill, a greatly improved Land Act,  a Railway Bill, and an iufinite number of important private bills which  will speedily' contribute to the development of the province. If anything could justify the verdict of  the constituencies recorded on February 2nd, it is the record and conduct of the session of parliament  just closed.  What Premiers Are Paid.

Despise the pessimist who sees  nothing .but the defects and blunders of mankind; aud .the scold;  whose pleasure it is lo complain of  all things as they are'.  Dr. Alex. Bell, inventor of the  telephone, says it is only a matter  of time till airships are perfected  and a speed of from ..100 -to 200  miles an hour obtained. Such a  consumation is devoutly to be wished. Just" fancy! a few of us in-Atlin could syndicate and get a ship,  thus putting it in our power to  make "week end" visits to .the outside, or lo take a run over to Skagway for afternoon tea, and to a ball  nt Whitehorse in the evening.  Oh! how delightful. Hurry, up,  professor.  ��� ��� Here's a 'hot number' in the  story line: "I have at home," said  the man, "a rattlesnake whose life I  once    saved,    and   I  haven't    the  -slightest doubt that it- realizes it. I  ran across it when it was stretched  out ,stiff and cold' and freezing to  death. Taking it home", I thawed  it out, and to my" surprise it seemed  ��� quite tame, ;so I permitted it to remain in the house, ��� aud it roamed  where it pleased. One night- last  week I was awakened by my. wife  who had heard a noise down stairs.  I listened, aud sure enough there  was some sort of struggle going on  beneath us. Snatching iip a revolver, I crept downstairs and into the  room. Imagine my surprise! .By  the dim light from the street I saw  that snake with its body tightly  wrapped around a burglar and its  tail sticking out of the window,  rattling for a policeman."  ��� "Keep your temper, laddie," said  an old Scotchman to a rather fiery  tempered son.

They fear that it means a set-back  to the cause of total abstinence.  Those who signed the manifesto  include Professcr T. McColl Anderson, Glasgow University; Sir William H. Bennett, Sir James Critch-  ton-Browne, Sir Dyce Duckworth,  Dr. .Hutchinson,^ Professor W. D.  Halliburton, King's College; Dr. E.  Owen, and Dr. Fred T. Roberts.  They state explicitly that:  "In disease, alcohol is a rapid  and trustworthy restorative;  "That in many cases it may be  truly described as life-preserving  owing to its ; power to sustain cardiac and nervous energy, while protecting the wasting nitrogenous tissues; and ,  "That as an article ol diet, they  hold the universal belief of mankind that the moderate use of alcoholic beverages is for adults usually  beucfical, is amply justified."

SATURDAY,    MAY   iS,   1907.  Spruce Creek Murmurings.  Ed. Helgrin & Co., are pulling  iu a large flume 15 feet by 5 feet lo  carry the high water, at a cost of  $1,200. This will save Ihe steam  shovel owned by ,lhe Northern  Mines,   Limited,   from   interment.  What  a  thing ��� is   human  nature. This mosl approved type  of a money-losing machine has been  run for the past two seasons and the  only satisfaction gained by the own-'  . ers thereof, has been to hear their  whistle blow, and to bury their  more practical neighbors up with  tailings. One would imagine Ihe  shareholders of such a money glutton would watch its submersion  ,   with vindictive glee.  We are glad to see J. Anness aud  R. Smail finishing up their outer  dump as it was in considerable jeop-  ary from high water.  J. Dick & Co., and A. McCrim-  mon & Co., have out the champion  dumps on the creek this year. We  hear they are turning out well, aud  judging from the smile on Alec's  usually serene countenance, as he  packs the pan from the clean-up,  we would say his at least ;s satisfactory.  E. -T. Pollock has assumed the  management of Pillmaivs Emporium. We , congratulate 'Pills' on  obtaining the services of such a  competent and experienced man lo  handle his fast increasing business.  Pillman aud Pollock will supply our  wants and needs to keep us alive  and give us decent burial should we  be so  unfortunate  as   to require it.  It is rumored that Pat Foley's  dump is paying away and beyond  his most sanguine expectations.  We sincerely hope it is true, no one  will begrudge Pat the good luck.  The only wish is that il extends to  others in the cam]).  Tom Swanson and Ole Hultgren  have men hired to sluice their dump  in order to get il out of the way before high water comes. They are  working on the principle "an ounce  in hand is worth a hundred down  the creek."  The Spruce Creek Power Company, W. C. Hall, manager, has  turned on the water and'commenced  operations in earnest for the season.  We have been wondering if the  matrimonal epidemic which has  visited the camp recently is the outcome ot the tact that the worthy  member for the district is the Minister of Education.  ST.
