Two  or three tilts occurred during the process of  the .Hale. The first one was over the announcing of the upset price and another w us  over the allowing and disallowing of certain  improvements an lots on First and Trainor  and the Vancouver Hotel property between  Mr. Browulee and Joe.Clarke, the real estate  agent. Mr. Graham stepped into thebreach  and continued'one ot the most successful  governmental uuctions, financially speaking,  that has ever been attempted iu British Columbia. .The sum has been variously,placed  at between *40,(KK) and $50,000. Some good  things may be said about government officials auctioning lots; but some bad things  may be said too. Too much compact leads  to abu->e.

A SERIOUS  MISTAKE.    ,       ■'
The miners'_ meeting' 'held last
Saturday was1 in. some respects a
success'and in others a failure.
• The idea of arbitratioiKreceived the
hearty entlorsation of those assembled. But when a gentleman arose
and moved three names and an attempt was made to have these accepted without further nominations
it was obvious to all present that a
slate had teen fixed. To this the
crowd rightly dissented, no matter
now capable the men might'te in
their particular calling".
All people doing business in Atlin district ;vre greatly interested in
. an early settlement of these disputes. In our last issue we supported the idea of arbitration and
sec no reason to change our jxxsi-
tion. Hut while we may urge upon
' the miners the- advisability of taking this course that is as far' as we
feel disposed to go. The selection
of the board should have teen left
entirely in the hands of those most
interested. ; "'
The gentlemen who were instrumental in organizing lastSaturday's
meeting did nothing wrong in arranging .for a chairman, secretary,
speakers and a motion favoring arbitration. The proceeding, up to
this point received the approval of
the crowd. It was when Mr. Young
nominated three gentleman and an
apparent effort made to rush them
through that the meeting protested.
It appeared as if everything had
been prearranged. The nominations should have couie voluntarily
from the crowd one at a time. Had
this teen done in the beginning;
there is no doubt that good men
would have teen selected and the
meeting dispersed enthusiastic for
its success.
The amount of wages to Ik* paid
the arbitrators, as stated by one of
the speakers, is the maximum
amount allowed by the act.
Of the1 three gentlemen named we
have .nothing to say further than
that they bear good reputations.

Selected After  Considerable'- Wrangling, s"\.;  The meeting'of miners held1 lust Suturduy  afternoon was attended ,"by u tremendous  crowd, a very large'number coining-down  from Pine, Spruce and other creel���. ~ *  Mr, Clifford, M. P. P., culled the meeting  to order'uud noiniuuted.il. O. Helgesen.'M.  P. P., for chairman, and H. Covvun us socrc-  tary. The nominations were endorsed by  the* mooting! - ���  ' Mr. Hu'lgusen 'on taking the ohiiii4 pointed  out the necomtity of doing something inime-  diutely to settle dlspptes. He urged that the  miners submit their cases to a fairly.appointed board of arbitration. If three good  miners could be selected uud lndiiced'to uct  they v\ ould be fur hotter than u judge. The  most of them hud come in here 'under'' very  trying1 conditions uud it would lie a pit.v if  they were not able to get to work on their  claims until lute in the Hummer.  Mr. Clifford was the next speaker and up-  prised the audience thut he vvus an Irishman  and boas-ted of the quality of the w hisk.v  manufactured there. The meeting was iu no  sense a political one. It wan called for .the.  , purpose of, devising Home w ay by w hich the  existing disputes might be Mettled. He did  uot believe the judge w ould be here before  some time iu July. Mr. >Graham, he said,  hud no pow er to settle disputes. Therefore  he hoped the miners would conclude to settle  them by arbitration.  Gordon Hunter was next introduced und  explained the workings of the Arbitration  Act. The essence of the net wan consent, resubmitting their cases to a board of arbitration they would avoid the tedious delays of  supreme court procedure.  Thomas Batenian was heartily iii sympathy with the idea* and-hoped the meeting  would act on the advice of previous speakers. He instunced u cane w here one man hud  staked his claim six times to ward oft others.  Mr. Clifford moved thut a show of hands be  taken on the Question of arbitration. On  the motion being put it w us carried unanimously.  F. McB. Touug then moved that Messrs.  Hunter, Butemun and Clifford be the board  of arbitration. Iu a short speech he pointed  out the good Qualities of these gentlemen.  The chairman was ubout'to put the motion  when   Sailor   Bill    interrupted,   protesting  'that the whole affair vvas a scheme to pro-  ' vide these three gentlemen w ith u fut job.  Another gentleman nominated a'Mr. Mc-  Cord.  Considerable interruption und protestations followed, when the motion wus finally  amended by submitting each name to the  meeting.       ��� t      '  The names of Messrs. Hunter uud Clifford  received the assent of . the meeting uud  Messrs. Batemun and McCord were vo'ted  down. , .,.   :  C. H. Caton was finally selected us the third  arbitrator.

When the ladies put their hands to'ah}  movement success is theirs. The dunce given  by the Ladies Auxiliary for the benefit of  the hospital in Rice & Hustie'h dining room  lust Saturday evening proved a mone.v -maker, aud the poor unfortunates who are in  u would-be hospital without fire-wood will  appreciate the warmth of this uddition to  their depleted institution. A sum close to  S-100 wus realised.  Dancing was kept up till 1J:,)()���short and  sweet���but it was guy while it lasted. Miss  Simson's wheel of fortune, presided over  by herself and Miss Burns, lost none of its  old-time charm for those who like to pick  out Dexter iu a field of 20, aud when the cush  was counted SoO stood to her eredit.  Of course an event of this nature couldn't  go by without our local photographer putting his stump upon it. He accordingly took  a flash-light and now exhibits it in front of  his place of business. Some of the faces are  good und natural aud some the other way.  The best of ull is the one looking up at the  ceiling and fingering his diamond all the  while. This is naturul uud comes from putting tho up-set price to near the roof. Perhaps there wus a blue-print up there.

Once upo.i u time a seagull, being ver)  hungry, to appease his appetite dived into  the sea and caujflit a small fish with which  he was slowly winging his way home, con-  grutuluting himself op his good fortune. An  osprey or sea eugle, noticing the fish in the  gull's beak swooped down upon him, and  being a bigger and stronger bird soon took  away the fish from the poor seugull and ate  it himself, and he uud his companions  chuckled immensely.  Moral.: The only moral the seagull could  deduce was that it was lucky he hadn't  cuught a duck for the result would have  been the same in any case.  Boxing and Wrestling  EXHIBITION.
