ONE  REMEDY.  We  are   glad  to notice that the  miners��of Atlin district are alive to  the   necessity  of   doing- something  forthwith toward the settlement of  disputes. relating to the claims on  the creeks in the, district ' We understand that a meeting'is' called for  this  afternoon   to  discuss  the feasibility ,of a plan that has been sug  gested  to establish a board of arbi-  , tration  which   will   have power to  settle all disputes between the miners in relation to their claims, both  ,as to the title aud as to the manner  of working - them.    The provisions  of   the Arbitration'  Act make tliis  remedy quite available and it only  needs the consent of the great body  of the miners to make it a complete  success.    If the miners get together  and agree to settle their differences  by   means  of arbitration they will  not   be obliged to wait for a judge  to come up who will   probably   not  arrive until   the beginning of July  and   who  will not be able to hear  and decide all the cases before the  season has, passed.    If the  miners  are compelled to wait for the judge  a great many of the claims will not  be  worked,   for  the simple reason  that  the  title  to  them  cannot  be  cleared  iu  time to work them this  summer.      If, .cu  the  other hand,  they select a competent board of arbitrators who could get to work at  once,   the title to the claims will be  properly settled by experienced men  who  would  view  the ground and  their  lawful  owners will have the  satisfaction of being able to resume  work at once on their holdings. We  are  in  hearty  sympathy  with the  movement aud l>elieve that not only  the    miners    themselves,   but   the  whole  people  of Atlin will benefit  enormously   by the carrying out of  the scheme.  If it is decided to go ahead with  the arbitration the personnel of the  lx>ard should l>e such as will inspire confidence.  '      Tlllv LAMENT OF THE LORN ONE.  It was un ancient prospector, sat ou a tallen  tree, / ' ,  Ho   looked   both   weary   and   forlorn,   and  ragged, too, was he.      r  That far away look w as in his ej e,   w hich  ruminating lends,        ,      ���-  The look that comes to you  and  me when  thinking of lost friends.  In his right cheek there lay a quid, a quid of  T. & B.  On which he chewed, and chewed,and chewed.  and chewed unceasingly.  His billy got beard, streaked  white by time,  with nicotine w as brow ned,  His jaws liko clockwork moving kept, but  uttered ne'er it sound.  My bowels with compassion moved; good duy  my friend, quoth I.  Have fortunes tide  been  buffeting uud left  you high and dry?,  Has reudj money given out, or is it corns on  your toes? i '  Relate to me, my honest friend, the cause of  all your woes.  His lack lustre eye is- slowly raised, of eyes  but one had he.  Jt for a moment on ine gazed, then sank de-  upoudingly.  The lantern   juws-   thoy   open and   a voice  v> hich quivers and shakos  Uttei-s one sad and wailing  word, and that  i        sad word is Stakkh.  Good heavens, I cried, quite horror struck,  the case is now quite plain,  His sufferings from starvation have weakened tho poor man's brain.  Rouse up old boy, cheer up old man, aud  come along with me,  And you'll soon be outside the best steak that  ever you did see.  "Nay, iiuj,  kind sir, you mistake me," the  lorn one replied,  The stakes to vv hich 1 did refer ure not  for  use inside,  But made of  wood  and stuck  on end, the  boundaries to define;  Of locations made by miners, see Form A,  1 Section i). <  I've miner and prosiiector been this forty  years or more.

Everything has to be t ninsucto I thro.igh Vancouver and all know what delay this entails.  The government is entirely too slow and a  good stiff protest from the people of this  district should be sent at once.  The merchants ol Atlin have shown coiu-  m��'mlnl>le energy in clearing up and burning  the brn-h and other refuse which lias congregated iu front of their places of business  This has greatly enhanced the usefulness ofthe streets.

Helgesen, M.P.P. lor Cariboo, a  man  of Hpe experience In all th'at pertains to mining:', v, ith several  other gentlemen, recently  spent ten days looking over the-creoks, giv-.  ing most of their attention to Dixie.   Asked  as to his opinion of the  latter  he  said that  for about three miles the creek ran through  a flat country, the valley being very wide.  He  prospected  u>  hydraulic   proposition by  sinking a shaft to bedrock and found blue  clayventending all along the rock.   "I found  one st reuk of gravel about 2U feet high and  prospected  it from top to bottom.   Colors  were found but they would not warrant tho  ,   expenditure iu working.   I prospected three  crook claims that had been partly opened up  beforo, without good result. ITho bodrock in  that vicinity is swept hard and clean in most  places.   How over,'I think more of the creek  about tvv o and a half miles further up, above  the mouth of Slato crook, as it is more contracted. .In fact'Dr. Bunion'showed me a  good prospect.   From his place  to the head  the stream   has a   butter full.   The ground  here can bo handled more profitably as bed-  rook  is not  very (loop.   There ure'good opportunities here for turning the crock back  on  tho  Hats  while  working the bod.   Dixie  creek continues from this place for a distance  of over 25 miles to  Atlin  lake and  I should  judge there would be good  paying places in  parts of it us it lies in the gold bolt."  "I visited Pine uud Spruce during ray  short stay.' The ground being covered with  snow aud not many claims being developed I  cannot pass an intelligent opinion, although  I think there must be "a great may. paying  claims ou these creeks. / Instead of being  shallow diggings, as represented by so many,  " I find on the contrary that they are very-  deep in many places, uud, iu fact, will be very-  hard to handle on account of there being al-'  most no milluble timber along the creeks to  lie hud, which will absolutelj forbid miners  from Uuming."  " '      "!  "I think there will be some good hydraulic proposition* "found. A greut number  huve already been staked, but not yet prospected ou account of the snow and ice on the  ground."  "I visited McKee creek and vvus well received by the miners. This creek I am happy  to bay is going to turn out a lot of gold.  Different minors showed me great results  from very little v\ ork. The North Star coin-  puny have taken out .>95 from a piece of a  ditch about -15 feet long. The whole work  could have been done in two days bj two  men under reasonable conditions. They  have splendid looking gravel. This piece of  ditch was run in ou the level in order to find  bedrock uud at five feet face on the upper  end, where us pretty a streak of gravel  showed itself us one could wish to look ut.  The miners up and down this creek^ure in  high spirits, which is a sure sign that they  huve rich ground. The pay looks us if it  would he continuous for u distance of from  two uud a half to three miles. AH the gold  secured so far is from tho gravel, bedrock  being reached ut only one spot on one of the  rims, the result proving good. I saw men  ��� who had great hopes of Eldorado, a promising brunch running into McKee."  "I am highly pleased with tho rock formation in this country, it being highly mineralized at pluces. I huve ulso run across iu my  short stay here a. few quartz stringers, beautiful looking bluish rock that is liable to carry  gold. I hud ho facilities for prospecting  them us I did not go out for thut purpose.

Notico is hereby- jriven that a miners'  meeting will be held in Atlin this afternoon  ut 3 p. in, for the purpose of discussing the  best and speediest method of settling all disputes in relation to claims in the Atlin district, in order that owners of claims may be  enabled to commence work as soon us possible.   All persons concerned are expected to  attend.  Chas. W. D. CUFFOIII),  M. P. P. for Cassiar District.  Atlin, May 8th, 1895).  Chas. W. I). Clifford, M. P. P., recently  made a tour of inspection of McKee creek.  To u reporter he said the creek w us verjuice looking from a miner's point of view.  He visited nearly ul) the claims that were  opened up and found the prospects ou the  eluy vcrv good, the find being coarso gold  and likely to bring 818 an ounce. There are  at present about three sluice heads of water  in the creek. From the mouth of Eldorado  down to about 15 below discovery, u distance  of say three miles, the indications are most  fuvorublo. The chief drawback is the heavy  boulders which lay thick on the surface.  The claj, if permitted to get into the sluices  will steal away the gold. No one has yet  reached bedrock. If, vv hen they get through  the clay, they strike gravel reaching to bodrock. the pay will be very rich. Not much  reul prospecting hud been done us yet, bi t  preparations were being make ull along the  creek to commence active w ork as soon as  the weathor becomes a little warmer. Mr.  Clifford thinks there are two and a half miles  of Pine that will pay from wages to 2\j.  ounces per man. Of course there may be  spots thut will prove much richer than this.  Spruce creek is very deep with the exception of some benches ut the low or end. There  may be a good run of gold when bedrock is  reached. He hus greut fuith iu this district  us a quartz country, especially in free milling ore. It is easy to prospect and should  receive a good overhauling this season.  "'Mining is the essence of Atlin's existence,  Pine is the stopping stone to the rich soil ut  its buck, aud the governmental cord tying  up the claims iu thut vicinity is the third  and only dismal feuture of our district,"  snid n prominent uniting mini v ostordnv vv ho  OUR BANKS.  The indications of prosperity in uny town  or citj are v ery varied. .There Is no surer  sign of faith in the future of a place than  the opening of a chartered bank, and w hen  in a town the size of Atlin three of the leading bunking institutions of Cunada open  their doors for business' it shows that those  vv ho take the greatest pains to investigate  have good grounds, for large expenditure in  the inception of their undertakings.  The first of.these to begin business in Atlin  was the Merchants' Bunk of Halifax, then  came the Canadian Bank _of Commerce and  shortly ufter the Bank of British North  Americu. From the beginning they have  hud enough business to justify the venture,  for ufter ull it was u venture, und there ure  evidences of increasing business from du> to  duy. SV. A. Spencer w ith his stuff of genial  ussistunts of the Merchants' Bunk hits from  tlie first been u most popular und obliging  manager uud hus vv on the good opinion of  thut portion' of the commercial community  thut bus given its business that way.  The Canadian Bunk of Commerce is one of  the leading financial concerns of Canada und  in this western country hus been bold in its  enterprises and here und in Duwson und the  upper British Columbia country litis been  well rewarded tor its pluck. .Mr. Billet's  management bus been characterized by good  common sense und has commanded the confidence of our young mining metropolis. Tho  offices ure well equipped and well attended.  The Bank of British North America having  been lust in is having its share und doing a  good busines. When they move into their  new quurters on the corner of Peurl und  Second streets opposite the new post-office,  vv here the wise manager hus been fortunate  iu securing u building site, there is no doubt  that Mr. Anderson and his stall' will do a  good share of the bunking business of the  Atlin district.  j;  STOREY,  Wholesale Dealer in  Saddlery, Horse Clothing,  1 Pack Saddles, Etc., Etc.  k Hastings Street, Vancouver, B.

The speaker in  question is ut present in Atlin.  "The Provincial law regarding aliens is  certainly untenable," she continued, ut the  sume time throwing back her head b.v way  of emphasis, "and when tho good people of  the oust ure mude acquainted with its workings'twill be knocked higher than Andree's  balloon.
