MINING  Atlin   and   Discovery People  Go on Record.,  A Development Syndicate Formed  to Exploit Upper Pine Creek  -��� Prospecting- Work Has  Commenced.  The Monro  Mountain   Mine  Makes a Showing:.  Twenty-five Tons of Roek, Put  Through the Stamp Mill���  The   "Bondees"   Very     San-  r.  guine.  The success which has attended  last winter's work on Gold Run is  responsible for the organization of  another prospecting syndicate, and  a large tract of ground lias been acquired on the south bank of Pine  creek, above-the Otter creek bridge,  and extending up the creek some  3000 feet. It is presumed that the  ground overlies the same auriferous  channel which has been founcTfcn  Gold-Run, about a mile below.    W/  To quote from the opinion of Mr.  Charles". Howard, one of the,  pioneers of this locality, and ij|Jact  the discoverer of rhe ancientjuni-  ferous channel, he 'says: "After  examining the gravel on Nugget  Point wc- saw at once that the  gravel consisted of granitic rocks.  We then sec about- to find, if possible, its source; thisi we found  eight miles above the mouth of  Surprise lake, where we found the  contact between granite and tal-  cose slates, which is identical  with the gold-beaeing slates of California. It was then a mere matter  of tracing the course of the gold  channel at the present mouth of  Surprise lake. We found the water  flowing over bedrock, which was  once the side of a canyon, the original channel having been filled in  by the washing down of the mor-  raiues of two glaciers���these mor-  raines can be distinctly seen yet���  the glaciers ' likely had their  origin in mountains, having ah elevation of from 5000 to 7000 feet,  east of Surprise lake. Gold Run  is part of the original channel, deriving its gold from the same source  as Boulder, Wright and Otter  creeks. Moreover, the gold which  has been found in Pine creek, Willow creek and their benches has all  passed through Gold Run."  This opinion was given by Mr.  Howard over a year ago, aud the  result of last .winter's work on the  Pine creek benches emphatically  confirms the latter statement.  Mr. W. Bartrim is the organizor  of the syndicate, which is formed  tinder the provisions of Part V.,  of the Placer Mining Act, Section  60. The total membership is 35,  aud the complement was made up  within a very limited time. Mr.  Bartrim was appointed foreman  and sinking operations have begun  under his supervision. If equal  success meets their efforts in development as in organization, we congratulate those who have taken the  "flyer."  It is known that development  work has been going on for some  time on the Imperial mine, on  Munro mountain, under the superintendence of Mr. Pearse. From  the result of this work twenty-five  tons of ore were put through the  stamp mill. This week a very  substantial "brick" was'deposite'J  with the Bank of B. N. A. Un- <-  fortunately, as the value of this  brick has not been made public yet  we cannot hazzard an idea of its  worth.  We have reason to believe that  Mr. Pearse and his associates, .who  have a bond on the mine, are well  satisfied with the outcome of this  stage of their dovelopmeht on the  property.  Should we be fortunate i;: obtaining the average yield per ton, after  the brick has been refined, we shaU  be pleased to make it public.  Two deals of considerable importance have this week been consummated on Spruce creek, involving  quite a little money. Both are iu  connection with hydraulic ground,  aud in each case it means considerably increased exploitation by the  purchasers, whom we congratulate  on their acquisitions. All the parties to the transactions are well  known in camp, but for reasons  best known to lhemselves do not  court, publicity.  A meeting of miners was held iu  Discover}' on Wednesday evening  of this week for the purpose of discussing the lormation of a miners'  union. Views were expressed., but  no decisive steps taken, excepting,  that of personal canvas to ascertain  how many miners would be disposed to join in the event of a  union being formed.  But for the notices 011 the doors  of both of the banks, no one would  ever think this was Victoria Day.  In all our existence wc have uevcr  seen such a lack of festivity as this  part of His Majesty's domains  portrays.  Professor Barnes has this week  been employed in the rather gruesome, but.humane, task of searching for the remains of the unfortunate Andrew Wilkie, who was  drowned last December.  Great preparations are being  made for the Firemen's dance which  will undoubtedly be a big success.

Tine opening   of   navigation on  ��� Atlin lake ' as  early as May 19th is  ��� an unprecedented   event, and if the  White-   Pas's   Company   could  take  "advantage of the fact aud commence  running their steamers before the  first of June, a record would have  been made, which we would consider of very material advantage to  the camp and likewise of benefit to  themselves.  For the last three years the first  connection between Caribou and  Atlin has not taker, place until between the sixth and tenth of June.  It. is impossible to learn of the condition of the other lakes between  Taku and Caribou, but, judging  ; from a telegraphic inquiry as to the  ; likelihood   of   making   connection  ��� from here with the outgoing "Princess May" on 31st, Supt. Schar-  schmidt wires: "Ice still good on  Tagisli lake. We are no prophets !" it would seem as if Atlin  lake had'this season taken precedence over the other lakes.  From a record of the mail service  obtaining at this season for the two  previous years, we find that in 1900  the last incoming mail, by trail,  was received on .May 12th, and the  first by boat (row-boat) on May  26th,���the Scotia did not make  ��� connections, until June 8th; ��� in  T.901, the   last   incoming  mail was  ��� received on .May 21st; and'the next,  by the Scotia, on June Sth. This  year the last full mail was received  the 9th, while it is only probable  that we get another before the boats  run.  ORE IN SIGHT.  What   it   Means   and    How  T  Often Abused.  J. D. Kendall Delivers His Views  to the London Institute of  Mining and Metallurgy.  With  the early commencement  of work-throughout the district and  the  improbabilitv  of danger from  high water, this  ought to be a re-  - cord ...season   for  the  district.    Already large quantities of gold have  begun   to   come   in.    The' banks  have  purchased,   up   to  this date,  an amount very  greatly  in excess  of what they had  bought last year.  From-the fact that all the companies  have this year been enabled to'commence   operations   fully   a, month  earlier,  and  are,,'moreover, almost  all   starting   their   work  on good  ground, there is no reason why the  results should   not' eclipse any previous,   season   in'- the , output..    If  friction   between     individuals, ���is  avoided; the   district  will have ah  opportunity of showing to the world  that after   all   Atlin .is   a mining  camp of no mean importance.    Unfortunately   there   are   still   some  busy-bodies in camp seeking to stir  Continued from last week.  Losses Resulting  from Over-estimate.���Excessive estimates  of, ore  in sight not only enable  promoters  to obtain exorbitant prices for their  properties,   but  most  probably in  duce the purchasers1 to erect expensive  treatment   plants, which soon,  become   useless   where  they   stand  and often   altogether, valueless on  account   of   the   cost of 'removing  them.   .Both these results cause unnecessary       expenditure,       which  means avoidable loss, and therefore  they   are   highly    detrimental    to  honest   mining.    To   put  it on no  higher   plane,   that   it oughi to be  quite  sufficient to induce engineers  to keep their  estimates   within the  bounds of fact. '  Suggestions. ��� As a rule,- statements as   to  the 'quantity of ore in  sight, like many   other  statements  in reports, are made so that there is  no possible way of checking  them  without going on the ground.   You  have   the   simple   statement   that  there   are   so many tons of ore iu  sight, and   you   are expected to accept it.    This   is   not  as it should  be.      livery   statement   of    such  quantity should lie accompanied by  an accurate   plan  and'vertical section,    on"   a   workiug'scale, which  shall indicate   the   extent of ore to  be estimated, and  show clearly the  ore which is known to exist, as distinguished   from that which is only  inferred.    The   width   of  the pav  chute   should   be   marked  on the  section   at  equal   distances   apart.  Samples   should   also be taken at  equal distances.    The frequency of  both will depend upon  the character of the  deposit.    If variable  in  form, but fairly uniform in quality,  the widths will   need   to   betaken  much   more   frequently   than   the  samples.    If the quality is variable  the   samples   must   be   taken  frequently.      The   width   or length,  area and weight which each sample  represents should in every instance  be   stated.       It   is important, too,  that   the   lines   along   which   the  samples are taken lie shown on the  plau.      Ore deposits are frequently  more or less banded, and  often the  values vary in the  different bands.  It  is  necessary,   therefore, that in  such deposits the samples be taken  across the banding, and not lengthwise' of   it.     If taken in the latter  direction the  latter may be wholly  from a rich band, or wholly from a  poor one, and  therefore do uot  represent the average  quality at that  part of the deposit.  If these suggestions be followed,  we shall hear much less tlian in the  past of errors  in  estimating ore in  Hydraulic    Mining  Machinery.

Some people, unfortunately, are  incapable of recording facts ac-  ��� curately, either from _ lack of the  necessary training, or because  their observations are more or less  vitiated by alj' sorts of/ideas thut  are not paralleled . by phenomena,  so thai what Is becomes twistedin-  to what',, from their .point of view,  ought to be. Such-men would'be  . much more useful iu the realms of  fiction than in a mine.  Others, again, are more or less'  capable of making the observations  suggested, but, from 'lack of experience in structural geology, are not  in sonic cases, capable of funning a  reliable opinion as to the ijuanlily  of ore in sight. The work of such  men could be checked if their reports were pi epared as recommended.  The- careless aud reckless who  might airily write down a few  figures in the usual omnibus sentence, as to the ^quantity of ore in  sight���looking upon them probably  as a mere matter, of opinion-,���would  doubtless feel themselves compelled  to go into the matter thoroughly  when the facts on which., their  opinion was based had tp.be set  forth clearly in the manner sug-  .    gusted.  It  is   also necessary that a statement  should   be made as to who is  responsible   for   the  different, data  employed, as,   for   example:   Who  made the  geological  observations,  who took   the samples, who made  the assays, who supplied the. plans.  The   value   to be  attached in each  part and to  the   whole can then be  fixed    with   some degree of; useful  data   supplied   by one  less able or  less  careful, the conclusions of the  former may be of veiy little- value.  In-conclusion;   the writer, wishes.it  to be  clearly   understood   that this  communication   is   not so much in-  . tended to set forth   all the methods  a.-.d precautions  needed in estimating ore in sight, many of which can  only be determined   on  the spot, as  to urge   the   importance  of having  all the observations of.fact relied on  so set out   in the report and accompanying plan that anyone competent  to do so   may   check    the   results.  The effect   of  such   a   course will  probably be   to   induce greater care  on the part of those responsible for  the estimates, and at the same time  increase the confidence of those for  whom   the   estimates are made by  affording a clear indication of what  is meant by "ore iii sighf " in 'each  particular case.-  ������'.���'  ATI.IN,    HENNUTT    AND    OIIILKAT   MIN-  '  ,-  INO    ' DIVISIONS       Ol-'      CASSIAK  "' -',' KLKUTOIlAl/ DISTRICT:  J^OTIOK is Imrub.r [riven that a Court, of  Id-vision will lie held at. the Court  House, Atlin, on Monday, the seventh day  of .Inl.v, A. !)., I!l(iL\ at the hour of ten o'clock  in diu forenoon, for the i>iii'|kihi' of hearing  and doterniinini"- unj and all objections  uiriiitisl, the retention of any naine'or names  on the Register of Voters for tho Atlin, Hen-  nett and Chllkat Mluiiij; l>ivisioiis'ror Cawdar  Kloetornl District.-[<il Vie., c. t',7, Sub-s.
