Generous ,  Display  of Flag's   and  Bunting-���An   Excellent  Pro-  ,   gramme    of   Sports   Carried  Out Without a Kitch.  The first anniversary of Victoria  Day was celebrated yesterday in  Atlin in good style. The morning  opened bright and warm, though  towards evening there was a slight  fall of rain. ' First street looked  very pleasing with its rows of trees  and the generous display of flags  and bunting.' The attendance from  the creeks was not as good as expected, but the backwardness of  the season may account for this,  men uot desiring to lose the day  from their work. An excellenl programme of sports was carried out  without hitch or accident. Discovery was fortunate in securing  several ol" the prizes. One of the  most amusing races was the Wheelbarrow race, which had ' been substituted'" for' the - Pick-a-back ;' race,"  and iu ' which Jack Letherdale of  Discovery and Jack Kirkland���  the two ��� heavy, weights' of the  district ��� were the winners. The  Sack and Obstacle races contributed  their share to the amusement of;. -  crowd. The day was finished ��� .p  by a dance in the Grand Hotel,  which was given under the auspices  of the Atliu Lodge, No. 15, A. O.  U. W., and, judging from the attendance, it must have been a complete success financially. The hall  was tastefully decorated for the occasion aud at midnight an excellent  supper was served. It was in the  wee sma' hours when the company  broke up after having spent one of  the most enjoyable dances ever held  in Atlin. Much credit is due the  dance committee, consisting of  Messrs. Le Cappellaiu, Bourne,  Richardson and Trimen, for the  success of the evening. The A. O.  U. W. make splendid hosts, and  any social event given under their  auspices will be sure to be well patronized.  The following is a list of the  events in the day's sports and the  winners of each.

They Report; That the Ice Coiiid  Stand  a Four-Horse Team���  '"' * Opening1 .' of Navigation A  Matter of Speculation.  The lake iu front of Atliu by no  means looks inviting enough to  travel on, but is more suggestive of  a cold bath; however, two fishermen from Taku crossed this morning with a dog team aud a load of  fish for - the local market. They  say there is 'no danger whatever,  except in getting off and on the  ice, while in the middle of the lake,  they-- report that the ice -would  stand a four-horse team. If this be  so, the chance of the Scotia's arrival by the first of June is very remote. On this subject there is now  lots of speculation, and many bets  have been made and taken, for and  against the first boat's arrival between the ist aud 4th of June.  On Tuesday last a telegram was  received at the local office stating  that the Royal mail left Log Cabin  on Monday night, but had to turn  back, the trail over Otter lake being  impassable. We learn that the ice  is still solid on Bennett lake aud at  Caribou, though Tagish lake is  open; so also is the Yukon. The  crew of the Scotia are all at Caribou  waiting the opening of navigation,  to come down by the Gleaner when  she starts to run. With present indications, navigation jrAY be open  by the iolh of j tine.  '"    )  ffirniiilHin^iiiiiliattrii)r:^"''7-';fe^^^w^'*i-w^-g:^<'��w"i-f.--  ..J-.__^ ATLIN,  B.C..'

The   twenty-fourth   of ��� May decorations   have,   in   our  minds, demonstrated  a  matter  that deserves  favourable   consideration   on     the  part of the citizens of Atliu.    This  is with   regard' to   the beautifying,  , "or rather, of preserving ' the beautifying effects of nature.    One of the  first endeavors in the   "civilizing"  of new towtis is to "cut  and carry  away timber'' from the streets, but  now, when   we  see the picturesque  effect of the trees flanking our main  street, one cannot  help   remarking  the softening   aud   pleasing result.  With  such a fine  street   as   First;  why not now take the  oppoitunity  of   planting   a   row  of trees along-  each side ? ' It can be done at a Very  small  cost,    whereas   we  now pay  quite a sum   each  time   a "decoration" is in   order: with a little care  1 ancl attention   added   after the trees  were  planted, ���' wo   would i" a year  or two   have as   fine a boulevard as  could   be   wished.     An   offer   has  been made to haul and   plant   trees  for one dollar each; surely the matter is worth consideration.  News of the Creeks.  Apropos of the notice of a meeting at Discovery last week and the  forming of a Union of the miners  there, the matter has attracted a  good deal of local attention and  speculation. The general concensus  of opinion seems to be that the  meeting at which it was decided to  form a Miners' Union1 was no*, a representative one and by its  premature action in the desire that  its resolutions be inserted in the  coast papers it is calculated to misrepresent the conditions prevailing in  this camp and that such action is  more liable to do haim than good.  In   our  opinion   a representative  association   of     all   classes   in '.he  camp is the niosl^ desirable.     If we  are   to have a mining   union   or association, let  us   put our shoulders  to the wheel  and   sec that we have  one,  which   will be   representative  in    every     sense    of    the    word.  My,   the   earnest co-operation    and  support   of   all    parties   interested  in the camp aud  its development in  the formation of such   a   union,  it  could be run on strict business principles, with a paid   executive.    We  believe that a union   working somewhat on these lines- would   Iv a factor to the   present   and   future wel-  larc of the camp.     Friction between  one   class   and   another  would be  reduced to a minimum and all questions   affecting   ihc   welfare of the  members could   I* iuspartiallv dealt  with.  The question   is a broad  one and  will   stand   much   discussion.     Wc  will be pleased to place our coinm-.s  at the disposal of the public and invite discussion cm the subject.    We  all  have capital at stake, whether it  be     in    labour  or in   cash, and in  . w'hateverSvay we. treat ol a union, it  should be looking towards the general  good.    My    helping   others we  help   ourselves :    therein     is,   the  Strength pf union.  M0UT,DKR:���This year Boulder  creek shows great- activity. The  trail, via Surprise lake is travelled  night and day by miners going ancl  coming with their sleds loaded with  provisions and camp outfits. A  store has been opened on the bench  facing, 24 below Discovers','and it is  1 ' * 1  reported that the owner has a hard  time  to ' keep up with the demand.  A general   freight  service  is being  regularly conducted  between Boulder   and     Discovery   aud     Atlin.  Tents  are  multiplying, like mushrooms , over   night, and it is a pleasure to see the   indications   of   life  and   prospective    activity  after the  dreary solitude of a Tew weeks ago.  The De   Uamare   Hydraulic Co.',  which   started   iu about two weeks  ago, with   some   eight   or ten men,  has had a hard  tussle  with the ice,  which completely covered the pipes,  flume,   ditches,   etc.,   to a depth of  from   three'  to   four   feet, aud now  continual land and mud slides keep  the   men   constantly   busy. ���   The  right hand   bench   above  the creek  is   composed   of   a frozen   mass of  mud and boulders  and   in  thawing  out great .patches  ,of   this become  detached and slide from a height of  100 feet ancl fall into the flume with  a ��uoise   like   thunder.    The prospects, on   this   company's ground  seem very favourable, as even in the  surface gravel  some very, fine nuggets have been found.  The creek is rising- daily and  every indication points to a successful season to every individual and to  the hydraulic company on "Boulder,  which, at present, is the creek most  sought after.  PINK:���Harrigan and partners  have several men at work constructing a new wingdam, and they expect to have the creek turned aud  everything iu working order bv the  10th of June.  Miller & McLaren, on Discovery,  are working night aud day ground-  sluicing, and are taking water from  the Sunrise Coy.'s main ditch.  About ten men employed.  From Discovery down to the  mouth of Sttvendyke preparatory  work is being clone on nearly every  claim.  The main ditch and flume 01" the  Sunrise Hydiaulic Co. have been  cleaned out and are now in excellent condition. Mr. "Ruffner has  had from 25 to 30 men on his payroll for the last three weeks. He  expects to have a monitor working  on the upper Willow creek pit inside of a week. The syphon to the  ditch on the south side of Pine will  be completed in a day or two, aud  whe:. the water is running in this,  wc may expect to see some genuine  activity on the south side 'nenches,  below Discovery, many of which  have paid handsomely by drifting,  and will yet yield splendid returns  jby ground-sluicing.  On the Slcveudyke property two  or three men are bringing up a  drain ditch of several hundred feet  in length, with the view of cross-  cutting the pay channel. Owing  to-the very heavy deposit of clay  and silt, it was neceseary to timber  the upper portion of the ditch. The  owners of this property are to be  commended,   for   the grit, they have  % M. frasef $ Co.  SUCCESSORS    TO  P. P. CO. First Street, Atlin.

The list of dividend payers, however, does not include uiany niei.-i!-,  hirgical industries that disbursed  large dividends (hiring the year,  and which shonld^bc ridded to the  disbursements of the mining companies proper.  The Journal predicts that'dividends will Jx: materially increased  during- the current year.  NOTICE.  .- The contemplated construction,  under Hie supervision of the-Provincial Government, of the Vancou_-i  ver, Victoria & Eastern Railway,  has caused an enormous amount of  commotion in the local House during this session. By this railway  it is proposed to bring the mining-  districts of south-west Kootenay iiir.  to direct communication  with Van-  ' con ver and .Victoria.  The undertaking-was first projected in June 1S97 by a few enterprising Vancouverites who employed Mr.' J. H. Brownlee to make  the  preliminary   surveys and after-  - wards   applied   for the Vancouver,  Victoria & Eastern Ry charter.   "���  Now, while Atlin is decidedly  quiet, waiting for navigation to  open,- it is encouraging to know-  that the now thriving mining towns  of Grand Forks, Greenwood, Anaconda, Princeton and Penticlon  were all even quieter four years  ago.  Mr. Brownlee relates that Anaconda was so dead, nobody noticed  the survey party passing through,  and it was difficult to change a $5  bill in Greenwood. 'Tis vastly  different now.  Atlin has brighter prospects today than any of these towns had  four years ago. The men who  have stuck to the Kootenay and  Boundary towns have done well,  aud, as history repeats itself, the  moral is "Stick to Atlin."  Rats!  "There is no-doubt about it,"  said T. Ii. Russell, of Atlin, to a  party of friends at Vancouver, "the  man who could land 75 to 100 cats  in Dawson City' would clean up a  tidy little sum. Why, my brewery  in the North is-overrun with rats  and mice, and I would willingly  pay as high as .

A .Question of Dividends.  The liiN'GINIiKKING AND   MINING  Journal, which makes a specially  of compiling the dividends of mining corporations in the United  States, stated in a recent issue that  the iotal dividends paid last year  by 2io companies allied with the  mineral industry of the United  Stales is $300,041,000.  These enormous dividend disbursements place the mining industry among the most profitable of the  nation's industries.  The dpper mines paid $33,433<"  000, or more than one-fourth of the  total dividend cHsburser.'.ents for.the  Brownlee's   Guide to  British  .

The above is the title of a very  carelully compiled map,--the outcome of the vast aud growing importance of the commercial and  mining iuteiests and connections  between the cities of Noithern  Washington, British Columbia and  the Yukon Territory.  The Golden North" is to Seattle a  trade producer of no mean order,  which the artificial barriers of the  49th parallel between British Co-  uinbia and Washington and the undefined boundary separating British  Columbia from Alaska, affect but  little, while the physical conditions  create and foster this steadily increasing trade.  No map has yet been published  which shows so'completely the commercial ebunectimis between the  cities of the Sound ancl B.C. and the  minmg camps of the north, consequently Brownlee's map should be  fully appreciated by the public, and  should find a ready sale. The map  aims primarily to show clearly the  physical geography and means of  travel by land ancl water between  the important points.  Brownlee's map is the most recent and most accurate guide to the  Yukon. Klondike, and to the vast  territory from Dawson to Skagway,  as well as theljAtliii gold district, the  new Porcupine district, Cassiar,  Omiueca, Cariboo, Lillooet, Yale,  Similkamcen, Boundary and the  Kootenays in B.
