A well attended meeting was  held in the Grand Hotel, Atlin, 011  Thursday evening last for the purpose of formally organizing the  "Atlin District Liberal-Conservative A'ssocalion."  .   Mr. A. S. Cross, J. P.,   occupied  the chair.  Several new members joined tiie  Association at the meeting. The  Constitution adopted was practically that of the kindred Associations  of Victoria and Vancouver. The  following officers-were elected:  President. G. A. Kerr, Merchant,  Discovery.  '  Vice-Presidents,   A.   S. Cross, J.  P.,    aid   W.    Pol.'ard  :Grant,  Barrister, Atlin.  Secretary,. W. G. Paxton, Notary  Public, Atlin.  The above officers, together with  Messrs. M. R. Jamieson, F. E. Litle,  C. E. Park, E. Sands and C. Taylor form the Executive Committee.  Anyone desirous of joining the  Association is requested to apply to  Mr. Kerr, Disco very, or to Mr.  Paxton, Pearl Street, Atlin, both  of whom have Membership rolls for  signature, as also forms of application to be put on the Voters' List.  -All voters should see to it that  their names are entered upon the  Voters' List without delay, as that  list will close some two weeks  prior to the holding of the Court of  Revision, which is  set for July 7II1  (  next.  �� GUN CLUB.  Atlin Has   a   Summer   Pastime.  Club 'Formally ' Organized -���Officers Appointed���Prospective. Competitions..  The White Moose.  Word has boon received that Mr.  J. Wash,.part owner in the White  .Moose (At-r>up on Taku Arm, has  had instructions to commence work  011 the property at as early a date  as possible, and he is expected to be  on the ground when the Gleaner  sails next week.  Mr. J. Car.lice, of Butte, Mont.,  is reported to be iu Skagway waiting the opening of navigation, to  come in here. He has a bond..611  the White Moose and will have an  engineer examine and report upon  the properts' early this summer.  It is expected that with the opening of navigation the Gleaneryille  Company will resume operations.  A numberpf gentlemen interested  in Trap Shooting met at the Grand  Hotel'on Thursday evening last to  consider ways ancl means of forming'a Gun Club in this district.  Mr. Woods, S.M., took the Chair,  and 'after some discussion a Club  was formed, to be known as the  Atlin Gun Club, with the following  officers:  ���  President, J. St. Clair Blackett.  Vice-President, E. Rosselli.  Secy.-Treas.,   E. M.   N. Woods,  S.M.     '. -  Captain, R. D. Fetherstonhaugh.  A committee, with the ab'ove'of-  ficers and Messrs. Hastie, Hayes  and Gillard was appointed.  Through the kindness of Mr.  Fetherstonhaugh the club was enabled to purchase five traps with a  battery.' and ��� a large ' number . of  "blue rocks,''' so tliat with "the  "material" that is known to be in  this district, ��� there should- .very,  shortly be a Club here to-take its  place amongst the best in the Province.  There will be' a "Meet" every  Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock on  the flats, north of the Grand Hotel,  which latter place is the headquarters of the Club.  This afternoon a team match  will take place, at 3 o'clock, captained by Messrs. Blackett and  Rosselli, and this being' the first  meet of the Club, it is hoped the  public generally���and this includes  the ladies ��� will attend and grace  the event by their presence.  Later on, it is tlje intention of  the Club to have matches with the  "Experts" at Discovery, and, posr  sibb-, also, matches with Skagway  and While Horse will be part of  the summer's programme.  To those who have not had the  privilege of looking on al a competition at the Traps, we can safely  say that from a spectator's point of  view, contests of the kind are full  of interest and keen excitement.  The Mails.  A small mail left Caribou on  Thursday night, at 8. p.m., in  charge of Norman Rant, for Atlin;  on wind and weather depends its  arrival.  Sixty sacks of mail are laying at  Caribou waiting   the   depart lire'of.  the   Gleaner,   which   is.  expected  to leave that    point    on or 'about  Monday next. .  '.

Saturday,  May 31', 190:  Considerable space has. been  set apart at intervals during the  last few months to the subject of  Platinum and its associated metals,  , ,the disgust, no doubt, of  hankerers after "news," but we  have no apology to' offer to those  for whom the subject may have no  direct interest.  ���Our "object all ��� sublime'' is to  demonstrate to the 'miner, be he  placer, quartz or hydraulic, that  there is a probable source of revenue open to him to which he lias  never given a thought before.  The additional fact, brought out  in " Platinum Pointers," which appears on the next page, that copper bearing ores are frequently an  important source of the platinum  metals, is one that should not be  overlooked .in this district, and as  we have an immense area of copper  deposits, it were well that those interested'should make arrangements  to satisfy themselves'- of the existence or non-existence of the precious metal.  As to its existence in placer deposits in the district there is no  doubt, as has been shown from previous iirlicles on the subject. Platinum cannot be saved by amalgamation, but separate arrangements,  inexpensive, by the way, must be  made, and the high value of the  metal will 'amply justify the means  taken for saving it wherever its existence can be proved.  Again, from the fact tbat serpentine rocks form the bedrock of  most of .the gold-bearing creeks,  aud as serpentine is a prominent  source of the platinum metals, the  argument is almost conclusive that  platinum should be found here,  apart altogether from the proof established by analytical assays by  the Dominion Geological Depart  ment about two years ago.

We were misinformed as lo the actual amount  of rock put through the stamp mill.  Only I went j* tons were put through,  not 'tweiity-fh-e, as stated. The  value, by weight, is 11.48 ounces,  but as the' brick has not yet been  assayed, the actual value in gold  cannot be givrm.  Taking the gold value to be at  $15.00 per ounce, gives an average  value of $S.6o per ton. The average value, as obtained by'the Nim-  rod Syndicate when they worked  the property, was $7.05, although,  they obtained as high as $12.59 a  ton from one of their drifts.

Troubling  Liable    to  Students of statistics, noting the  rapid increase of annual gold production of the world during the last  , ten years, and noting also an ever-  widening field for the mining of it,  have been seriously debating among  themselves the possibility of an  over-produclion. The    practical  miner, actively engaged   in getting  out all he can    for   himself now, is  giving himself little  concern about  his   successor's    gold   production,  and what he, has to do with it when  he   gets   too   much.      There   is a  novelty about the conception- of the  idea of an over production   of gold  that makes it a fascinating  subject  of discussion.    No  miner has ever  been able  to  realize that his mine  ever made  an   over-production for  him, and, it might be added, every  miner, wants  for  himself the mines  that will  make  such   an over-production. ���    ���   -���    ���  Seriously considered, the subject  has little more   than   an   academic  interest   at   present,   and,   despite  predictions of the 'professors, does  not look   possible   of   becoming of  economic  interest.    It is true that  gold is now mined  from what was  the wastes of mining twenty years  ago. ��� Refinements  of practice are  continually   reducing   even    these  small wastes  made.    The machine  cheapening of work has made possible  the extension of gold mining"  to enormous masses of rocks which  can now   be   considered   as  being  low-grade   ores.    New   regions  of  the   earth   are   being   found gold-  bearing   and   are  being, exploited  with a tremendous   application   of  energy.    This   is   one'view of the  proposition.  The oilier view .shows that gold  mines do become worked out. - The  new sources of production in large  part simply replace a source of production disappearing towards the  vanishing point. The recovery of"  .gold from the old wastes of gold  mining makes more impression on  the imagination, and less ou the  pocket, than the gold mining of the  deposits from which ; the wastes  were made. California in forty  years,, up to 1890, yielded more  than $1,000,000,000 of gold from  her placers. Does anyone reasonably assume that from the wastes  of those, placers another ��1,000,-  000,000 i.s coming in forty years ?  The same reasoning applies to its  quartz gold production. ' The  wastes of the old workings willadd  to future production, but they cannot be expected to duplicate the  quantity, of -the -old or the concen  tration of its production in an equal  time period.  "The machine cheapening of mining work extending the field of  gold mining to ihe low-grade ores  again' appeals more lo the eye and  imagination, and less to the pocket,  than the past working of the high-  grade ores. A flat dotted over  with dredgers makes a great show,  and is recovering gold that the old  mining methods and machines  could not touch, but the aggregate  annual gold recovery of the flock  of dredgers working in the'low-  grade gravel "flats is less than that  of oue of the old lime drift or hydraulic mines in a rich channel  placer. The stamp mill of ioo  heads working on mountain-like  masses of low-grade ore i.s impressive, but it does uot necessarily'  mean more ��� gold than one of the  old time vo-stamp mills working in  bonanza ore.  It is beyond question that we can  see more gold in place available for  ultimate recovery than at aiw previous period ot.the world's history.  The seeing of it now, however, is  only one element in the problem of  the future gold production. Another element is time. Taking account of the time that it will re-,  quire to get this gold out of the  rocks, aud .its rate, of production  and the total mass of gold we estimate, is rather an abstraction than  an economic factor.     vi-  Another factor in the equation is  the fact that just as the quantity of  gold coming out of the earth increases, so does the stream returning to it again increase. With the  increase of population of the world,  aud the extention of its arts, more  and more gold is consumed as a use  instead of accumulating as a measure. As a use, it is being buried  again almost as fa^t as it is being  dug up. As a use, too, it is quite  within reason to assume that what  might be an over-production hi a  measure merely will be absorbed by  a geometrically expanding consumption. ,  Even as a measure, the common  thing for all men's desires, Hie service required of gold would appear  to be a quantity increasing in geometrical ratio. The aggregate of  wealth, with all the devices invented for simplifying and .quickening  exchanges; is becoming so vast  that enormous increases iu gold  production are absorbable as money  without increasing values suddenly,  which is the only way by which an  over-production of gold would become appreciable. The over-production of gold is, anyway, uot a  question for miners. It would  seem, rather, one for the consideration of astronomers.-���Mining aud  Scientific Press.  ?   ivn^^^i   and Grape  Rings  And All Kinds of Jewellery Manufactured on the Premises.  /JpfiF*    Why send out'when you can get goods as cheap here ?

These  special uses, are likely lo increase  rather than decrease, and therefore,  aside from Ihe fact that manipulation and control of .the markets  may have in some degree ��� caused  the increased price, yet the latter is  based in part on the actual demand  for the metal.  Of the metals' associated with  platinum in nature, iridosmine ancl  sperrylile are the only ones of commercial importance. The former  has been vigorously sought in recent years because of its osmium,  whicn is much desired on account  of' its incandescent properties.  Sperrylite as an associate of the  nickel-copper ores at Sudbury, Out.,  and in the Rambler copper mine,  Wyoming, is of more than purely  scientific interest.  In its usual associations platinum  is found only with the basic, ig:  ueous rocks which are rich iii the  mineral olivine, or chrysolite.  They constitute the group of peri-  dotites ancl are likewise the home  ofchromite, the commonest associate of .platinum. The pendotites  change readily under metamorphosing influences to serpentine, and it  is therefore not surprising to find  that the platinum is often traceable  to this mother rock.  The most interesting and, commercially speaking, the most important association of platinum is with  the copper-bearing minerals. Several such cases have long been matters of record, although the3' have  been mostly overlooked.  It is extremely desirable to be on  the watch for platinum and its as  socialed metals in copper ores  Comparatively minute quantities  ma}' have been overlooked iu the  past and yet ma}- be profitably  saved.iu modern methods of electrolytic refining, especially while  platinum rules at the present price.
