This pleasing facL is clearly  brought ont in a brief report ou the  ���.' black sands" ofthe Atlin district,  which' appears   in   the .preliminary  report of progress for 'goo, recently  issued   by the Dominion Geological  Survey Department.    This -investigation was entered upon by the.De-  partrnent   for   the purpose of determining how far such   sands carried  metals of the   platinum group, and  incidentally to ascertain what values  they   contained   in   fine  gold,   not  readily recoverable by the mechanical means ordinarily adopted by the  every'-day   miner.    The 'result   appears tabulated'below: -��� ��� *-'  !     The'samples of sand submitted to  treatment were collected last season  by   Mr.   J.   C- GwUiitn,   Dominion  Geologist,    before   completing    his  two years' survey of tlie gold field,  and represents   the   black   sand left  in the miner's pan   after   the   gold  gravels   have   passed   through the  sluice box of rocker and  the resulting' concentration has been carefully  panned of its  coarse  gold without  the . use    of   quicksilver.      These  I samples, taken   from   Pine, Spruce,  I Stevendyke,   Boulder,   Willow and  McKee creeks, were passed through  'the  Wetherill   Magnetic   Separator  in turn,   each    being   thus   treated  thrice,    the   non-magnetic   residue  being then   submitted-to careful analysis   for gold   aud   the platinum  metals.      This   has    demonstrated  that our  gravels  are   richer in fine  gold   than   is  generally   supposed,  that, though fine, much  of it is sufficiently heavy to be caught by the  riffle, yet too fine to be easily separated from the accompanying heavy  sand by panning and   blowing, and  thai the use of quicksilver or some  mechanical   inean-i   other than the  pan is necessary if it is to Ik- wholly  i recovered.  1  I The magnetic constituents ot the  sand appear to bs magnetite, specular haematite, ihnenite, chromite,  epidote aud garnet, together with  minute serpcutinous grains, and  this portion of tlie sand showed but  faint traces of gold; The non-magnetic portion, on the other hand,  ranging from 2.3 to 46.3 per cent of  the sample treated, gave higluvaluest  in gold, as appears from the following table, arranged in the order of  value: ',-' '  GltHKIi.

With regard to the test for platinum  the report says: "this cannot betaken as an accurate qualitative result as the platinum1' analysis was  somewhat unsatisfactory."1   ���  Won a $150 Scholarship.  We notice by the results of the  recent examination at Queen's University, Kingston, just published,  that Mr. George Pringle, of this  town, has been awarded the Mc-  Lelland-Waddell-scholarship. in theology, of $120, in his first year examination. He deserves the warmest congratulations. On Wednesday ���  or Thursday of this week Mr. Pringle leaves Gait for the Porcupine  mining district in the northern gold  fields of British Columbia, where he  has been stationed for the summer  by the Home Mission Committee of  the Canadian Presbyterian church.  His experience in Atlin last year  has especially "-fitted him for work  at this mission station. In the  Glows of Saturday last he has a  two-column illustrated sketch of  Atlin City. B.

The first clean up will  take place next week, and from the  encouraging panning.-: obtained  good results are anticipated. The  water in the creek is still low. but  they are getting about 24 splashes  per day of 300O gallons each.

It has been decided to hold a  grand celebration on May 24th and  an elaborate programme of sports  has been gotten up for the occasion.  Tliis will be the first celebration  of " Victoria Day" iu the century,  and as fai as Atlin is concerned, we  predict that ;t will he royally observed.  There is a difference of opinion as  to how the day should be acknowledged: sonie contend that it should  be set apait as a day of mourning  in that we might fittingly pay our  tribute to the inoinuiy of our departed sovereign, b,it we feel that,  Uv-uigh we celebrate, we in oui  hearts pay the deepest respect to lIk.  memory of our dead Queen, and  ���celebrate the first anniversary of the  grandest historical era the world  has known���The Victorian Era.  In another column will  be found  the repoit of a , miners'  meeting at  Discovery, when   the Atlin District  Miners' Union   was formed and the  '   standard rate of .wages  fixed at  $5  ���  per day often  hours.    For  several  reasons we regret that such a combination was entered into.  We have  ' every respect   for   the general principles of unionism, but many things  have   to   be considered,   both from  the employees' and   the employers'  points   of   view,-to   say norliing of  the   conditions   existing  iu a new  and undeveloped camp such as this,  ft such   an   arrangement  as is proposed is carried out, we  venture to  assert that it would be practically a  death blow to the  development  of  the camp   by   prospective -capital.  Circumstances alter cases,   and   although   it     is   only   , natural    for  the   miner    to    endeavor   'to    get  the.. highest .possible- wage,    that  wage must be regulated by the supply and   demand   of labor.    If too  high a standard is set, the employer  can    get   all   the men he wants by  sending   outside   for them, and the  Union   would   be cutting   its own  throat, metaphorically speaking, by  setting   a    standard    incompatible  with the conditions of development  presently   existing   in   the   camp.  Were the   hydraulic  companies intending to operate now on a paying  bisis we   might view the subject in  a different  light,   but thousands of  dollars will   have to be spent he I ore  this stage   is leached, hence miners  looking for \\01k   must   be reasonable in their demands.  Before coming to any positive ar-  ra:.g..-.ine!it, we would suggtsL that  a committee trom the-Union be appointed and that the managers of  the different companies be communicated with, with the view of  having a joint meeting to discuss  the matter of wages. By such a  course we feel assured that all possibility of conflict will be set at rest,  as illjeelin.g could hardly be avoided  were'the members of the Union lo  act independently.  MINERS' UNION'  Formed   at ' Discovery   This  ..Week   '  For Mutual Protection--Standard  Rate of Wages Agreed Upon  ���Protest Against Low Hates  Oit'ered by Companies.  A mass meeting of the miner'  was held in' the Nugget Hall on  Monday evening, 13th inst, for the  purpose of formulating some plan  whereby the wages of the camp  could be kept at a certain standard.  Ou the meeting being called to  crder it was moved, seconded and  carried unanimously that Mr. Van  Wert take the Chair.  After a few brief remarks hy the  Chairman it was decided to appoint  a secretary, and Mr.-H. E. Brown  was chosen to act pro tern.  After a few brief speeches re the  objects ofthe meeting it was moved  by Mr. Chambers, seconded by Mr.  Gnnderson, that a Union be formed  under the Western Federation of  Miners.���Carried.

'- -  A French Mining Engineer Expresses Ills Observations to  His Compatriots.  t *  As in all new countries placer or  alluvial gold lias taken tlie entire  attention of' the miner and as we  have just seen nearly all the known  methods have been put in operation  to extract it. Tick and shovel preceded hydraulics arid'dredges, however Atlin is now no longer a new  country., it has been three years  known,-aud that is a gotd deal for  ^~" this part of the world. A nev\  field has been disclosed andstudied  and is notv being exploited for loth:  mines, and we may now say a litlie  ofthe. gold-bearing .quartz of the  district. -  Quite clo'se to' Atlin - there; is  Munro mountain, opened out by  the Nimrod Syndicate of London.  The quart/., which is milky, white,  does not,appear to be exceptionally  rich, about $8 lo $io perTbnv but  the le'dg'e is regular 'auoV�� well .de-  fined and it is easy of access and  prospectiou. '1 hey haA-e installed a  battery of five "stamps and the mine  will probably continue lo run if the  values keep up.  The property called the Yellow  Jacket, which was discovered iu the  bed of Pine' creek after the gravel  covering it. had been washed off,  has an excellent showing; but it is  at present iu litigatio.i. Other very  promising croppings between Fine  and Spruce creeks have been found  and sampled, but the most interesting is the Engineer group, situated  on the shore of Taku arm. This  property consists of several ledges,  of which five are well defined and  have been- studied. The principal  one is a magnificent mass of quartz,  90 feet wide, from which seven! reliable, assays have returned from  $15 t.> $25 a ton. The other ledges  have given higher values of fiom  $35 io $50. Development work i^  being actively prosecuted aud the  Engineer group will become some  few years hence one of tliegie.it  mines of the Pacific coast. Adjacent, to the Engineer group is the  Gleanerville properly, where they  have found sume line quarlz with  visible gold.  With the gold-bearing quartz  the subject of lode mining is not  yet exhausted ai:d we must say a  wo; d about the copper ores of the  district. At the south n\u\ of Atlin  ,-lake. iu the valley of.Glacier creek,  surrounded by. grand mountains,  with, as a background, an immense  glacier,    more    than .20   kilometers.  wide, we find a large mineralized  vein of ehalcopyritc, on which development work was commenced  List summer and was continued  through the winter. Then on  Copper island, which lies "in Tory  inlet, copper is found in stringers of  quartz, cutling dyke�� of red por-  phn\ This{1diicovery', was clue to  the finding of a mass of copper  weighing 50 kilogrammes on the  surface; the piece "was sent to the  Paris Exhibition of 1900.  In the valley ,of Glacier creek,  near the great, glacier, silicates of  nickel exist in , abundance and it  is.said that exploitation ou a large  scale is now under consideration.  Galena ore's are reported in the  va'dey of Fourth of July creek, a  litlie to the north of Atlin city, and  also on the sliore of Lake Bennett.  Iu conclusion, we would say,  that many prospectors are yet iu the  field and much valuable ground will  be uncovered. What was a few  years ago but wooded solitudes, inhabited by bears and moose, has  become a great mining camp, civilized, industrious, where machinery  of all sorts has already made its appearance, and of which the production will astonish the world.
