Mr. Mostyn Williams, manager  ofthe Atlin Lake Hydraulic Company on Birch Creek, is so well  satisfied with the prospects of the  compaiiy'sgrounds that he sent this  week to Vancouver to secure a duplicate ofthe plant already here.  Mr. Williams expects to have 25  men at work next week.  After the battle of Spion Kop,  one of our men was found dead  with his finger on the trigger of his  rifle. A Boer who attempted to  take the rifle out of his hands was  shot dead by n slip of the dead  .man's finger.  Beyond all odds the most disastrous conflagration which has ever  occurred in Canada commenced at  noon on the 26th April, in the busy  manufacturing little city of Hull,  Que. Hull is separated from Ot-'  Lava by the Ottawa river,'- there  about 100 yards in width. A strong  viud was blowing from the worst  possible direction, the North-Hast,  and Die lire soon got out of control.  After ravaging Hull and destroying  Hdd\Ts Match 'factory, Booth's  Lumber mills, Ottawa Carbide ' factory, Electric Railway power house,  the magnificent Roman. Catholic  Church and hundreds of residences,  including the magnificent villas of  Mr. Booth and the Hon. Mr. Foster,  it found its way across the bridge  connecting with the western part of  Ottawa, kept on ' its destructive  march to the Canadian Pacific-Railway Station, from .whence it spread  over and wiped out the wescern part  of the city. Latest telegrams seem  to indicate that it was checked there  ou the 27th.  The area'burned over was five  square miles. Seven lives were lost  aud seven thousand people rendered  homeless. The loss is estimated at  seventeen million dollars-.  "~ Parliament has voted a hundred  thousand dollars for immediate relief. British financial assistance is  promised. The Chinese merchants  of Victoria have sent S500. Carter  Harrison, Mayor of Chicago, is  taking iip'subscriptions.  The ver, latest despatches announce''that the fire made a clean  sweep of Hull and western Ottawa.  WORK   SUSPKNDKD  On Capt. Irving's Taku Tramway  Line.  As a consequence of a protest entered by 'the Atlin Lake Short Line  Tramway Company, against the  John Irving Co., now building an  opposition line across Taku Portage, woik was brought to a standstill this week, and no progress will  be attempted until an amicable arrangement - is arrived at between  the contending companies.  SMALL DKBTS COURT.  The following cases came up during the week: A. D. Banneiman,  Pine v. Bfogau and Curtis, Pine.���  Suit to recover on a .promissory  note for $100. Judgment for plaintiff.

Heretofore the P.-I.  and .Seattle Times were-placed on  sale here three and four days iu ad- "'  vance of,the Canadian publications,  and resulted, naturally, in making  the latter unsalable. The cause  of the delay has never been fully  explained, bur Mr. Wilkinson  places the trouble at tht door of the  news agents at Skagway, who  show decided preference for "American papers. They will send out  the paper with the greatest sale  first, and then follow up next day,  or later, with the poorer ones.  This, from now'on, Mr. Wilkinson  says, will be done away with, and  the Province, \at least, will, conic ���  in on time, if not ahead of its rivals.,  Mr. Wilkinson will remain here  till the opening of 'navigation and  then proceed to Dawson.  - A N K N T K R P RISIN G I -' IR M.  Messrs   Dixon   Bros:   the    well-,  known freighters and teamsters who  have    been' operating   around   the  district    since   last ,   spring,    have  -  bought  out   Mr.   A.   Macdonalds's  two stages.   They have also bought  a  first class  Saratoga    four-horse  stage, which should be at  Bennett  now. - This    stage   is    handsome,  modern and-up-to-date.    It will run "  daily to Pine  and connections made  there with stages to Surprise.  Dixon Bros: will also have a  large stable erected and will keep a  plentiful supply of 1 uggies and saddle horses for hire. Heavy-draught  teams and wagons will be a specialty, and freight of all descriptions to  and from every part of the country  will be handled. This branch oi  the business is now' running, and  orders may be left at the li. A. C.  We    heartily   commend    Dixon .  Bros: for their enterprise  and  wish  them all the success they so   richly  merit.  THROUGH THK ICK.  As Mr.   Morrison   was   rounding  the point   below   the  Sinclair   mill  with a horse  and  sleigh   yesterday  morning  the   ice  gave   way.    Mr.    <-  Morrison called for assistance, which  fortunately being ha dy,   the   horse  was saved after a hard struggle.    It  will soon be time for the authorities  to put an embargo 011   horse   traffic   ,  on the lake.  A NKWSPAPKR HUSTLKR.  j. T. Wilkinson, of the Province,  Vancouver, came into town on  Monday. He is the first of the  coast newspaper  representatives   to  Mr. James Stables, president of  the B. M. P. A. and well-known  here, returned Tuesday from a two  months visit to his home in Maui  toba. He reports having had a  pleasant time, and looks the embodiment of health. He denies having  any political aspirations whatever,  and smiles at any such being attributed to him.  1     Don't   forget   the   2.1th of   May  celebration   meeting this evening iu  i Rice & Hastie's Hall.

'.Many new men are also arriving to  try their fortunes in the camp.  Outside capitalists, either in person   or  by their agents, are   putting -in   an  appearance attracted by the glowing-  reports of our hydraulic and  quartz  mines.    Companies formed last year  are putting in extensive plants, cm-  ploying  a   large   number  of  men.  Under these gratifying  circumstances it would  be  proper  that  every  , means should   be  adopted   for  the  good administration of the   district  and the accomodation of the   large  population wc shall have during the  summer.     In this connection   there  is, one question which   stands   head  and shoulders above all   the others,  and that is   the  appointment  of a  permanent County Court Judge for  the district.      A   large   number  of  cases are pending, and many   more  are sure to crop up as. time   passes.  Many of the quartz mines in a con ���  dition for developing this   year are  more or  less tied up<- by litigation,  and nothing can   be  done   towards  settling these  disputes wliich   militate so uiuclvagainst  the  advancement of the   district, until  such   a  Judge  be   appointed  aud   assumes  his office."   If such an official is not  sent in soon we very    much   fear  a  repetition of the incalculable   injury  of ittoo will result.    The   Premier,  the Hon. Joseph Martin,   is prompt  to act in such cases of need as   this,  aud we doubt   not   that  when   the  matter is properly  laid   before  him  he will grant us ihe justice we have  been so long without.     His   giving  us a County Court Judge  at  once,  will make him nrmy friends in this  district,, which has been overlooked  aud misgoverned from the first.  conquered by. England, shall at  length see the star of liberty rise for  you, and your rights respected by,j  those who liavc so long violated  them. It lias been a long time that  England has dominated the nations  of the earth; is she not now to be in  her turn invaded by hostile hosts?  For three centuries she-has'sent out  her bauds of mercenaries into all the  isles of the ocean and every plain of  the continents to-make laws for all  the people. Shall she not one day see  hostile armies fall upon her own  coasts and devastate her cities of  London, Manchester and Liverpool?  At length the peoples are awakening from their stupor and their torpor with'regard to Albion; they declare .her.solemnly the great corrup-  trix'of the earth; the unjust domin-  atrix, the queen of evil;1 they are  preparing to place her under the  ban of the civilized world. ���"La  Semaine- Religeuse."

Premier that there is no cause  for his losing any sleep by fear that  Cassiar may elect an independent.  Messrs. Irving and Clifford are  straight anti-Martin candidates, aud  both sure of election from this district."  So says the Bennett Sun. Capt.  Irving must have told the people of  Bennett more political truths than  he did to those here.  We suppose it is one of th? infirmities of human nature that- a  large section of us are possessed  with the hallucination that we are  poets, and only wai.ta little nurturing to blossom forth as Tennysons  and Brownings.  Poetry is the,highest expression  granted, t-he human .intelligence.  Doggrcl is perhaps its extreme antithesis, but, unfortunately, amongst  many who cannot appreciate the  difference, it makes a very annoying weapon in the hands of an un-  . scrupulous opponent. There is an  clement of cowardice in satirical  peisonal doggrel ofthe anonymous  description, which is quite suggestive of tlie cur which snaps behind  because it is not plucky enough to  make a frontal attack. We might  point out to those unfortunate victims of the doggrel cacoethes scri  bendi who have perforce to have  u vent or explode, that public mat  vers come within the legitimate  range of their "goose" quills, but  men personally, and their reputations, should be held sacred.  Joseph A. Clarke, remembered  by many Atlii.ites, as secretary of  oi:r celebration committee last year,  but now of Dawson, is having barrels of trouble in the last-named  place. He has instituted a $25,000  action against the Sun because that  paper mentioned that he deserted  from the Northwest Mounted Police, and iu the issue of the 17th  he comes out with a three-column  letter in defence of his j-osition  while a resident of the Klondike.  There is an element of humor in the  defence, if nothing else, when he  says that "the most serious offence  that I was ever charged with during my 13 months in the force was  'loitering on fatigue'; this consisted  of stopping shovelling snow "long  enough to warm myself in my room  one day, when the thermometer was  away down, and I had not become  used to 4.0 below zero like I am  now." We never knew Joe 'loitered' at any vocation, aud certainly  no one in Atlin (government officials not excluded) ever suspected  him of being slow. "He's a dead  game sport, ,a; Conservative, and  his limit is the ceiling."  ; .

The phenomenally licb find was  only made a short time ago in the  tunnel, which was being driven on  . the claim, which is, ��f course, placer  ground. When about 60 or 70 feet  in, the miners struck a quartz ledge  some 4 or 5 feet wide and from this  the wonderful quartz is taken.  The story out-dazzles Aladdin's  famous lamp. Four men' now  stand guard at the entrance of the  tunnel with loaded rifles and 'ii.  backet fuls the rich quartz i;  brought up. Of course the whole  'wid.'.h of the ledge is not equally  rich, but enough of it is such as the  sample brought down to make the  discovery one of unparalleled importance.  The find has created an immense  ftlir in Atlin.  A number of gentlemen from  Atlin were in the Commercial when  Mr. Russell showed the quartz,  and told the interesting story ofthe  iind. They all said it was a frequent occurrence iu working Atlin  placer claims to uncover veins ol  free-milling quartz, though, of course,  none heretofore opened had been so  ^enormously rich as the present.

We have had many pleasant visitors lately in the shape of birds ol  various kinds, which 'we prognosticate as. a sign ol an early and  warm summer. In number aud  variety they much exceed those ot  last spring. Those which were  here last year, on their return to  warmer climes must have advertised  Atlin advantages freely, Board of  Trade style, amongst their stav at  home compatriots, hence the present  influx. Many a lesson can be learned from our little feathered, friends,  and this is one of them.  The principal arrivals so far are  ducks of four or five species, snow  birds, robins or crossbeaks, Baltimore orioles, raveiis, Hudson Bay  birds, and what looks suspiciously  like an English sparrow. - The  graceful martin is beginning to' flit  around, and a couple of bittern were  heard booming on the lake during  the week. Quite.a few ducks have  alreadv been harvested ou the sly. -  No mail arrived last evening.  This is the first break that has  occurred in the past three months.  Wounded soldiers, invalided  home, ou arriving at London dock:5,  are not required to move from their  cots, being swung gently ashore by  means of a steam-crane which  lowers the wounded man evenly  and  gently     into  the    ambulance.  The Boer,method of taking away  the dead is to tie two reins round  the body, which is then carried off  at full gallop by two horsemen.  The Liverpool Post says that a  I firm in Liverpool, being delighted  I at the idea that one of its employees  was called upon lo join the reserves,  at once volunteered to. pay half  his wages to his wife in  his absence. At the end of the  mouth the woman appeared, and  the moiety was -at once given her.  "What?'' she said. " Four  pounds?"      '  "Yes," replied the senior partner, "that is exactly half; sorry  you are not satisfied."  "It isn't that I'm not satisfied.  Why, for years he has told me he  only got 16 shillings a week,  and���and���if-the Boers don't kill  him Twill."  ^  i  .  vl  J  1  4  m  ii  KJi^'MrfWjftUjk-  .���>i��iawas��M��reate��a3w^^
