We would suggest'that some representative citizen or citizens call a  meeting of the residents of Atlin  for the purpose of perfecting some  plan by which a representative committee or council might be elected  to look after much of the town's  affairs that are now neglected. Notwithstanding that the law provides  that only those owning property  may petition for' incorporation and  as. we have none of such as yet,  still provisional power might be  granted by an ' order-in-council,  which would serve the purpose until such times as the "townsite passes  into the hands of the people.  The want of some manner of fire  protection becomes more apparent  every day, as the sun's, rays dries  the light, inflammable brush in the  woods about the city, not to mention the hundred aud one causes  from within. _ This is but one of  the many things such a body could  attend to.  Further, concerted action on the  part of this body might have the  effect of .hurrying up the government and inducing them to mitigate  some of the 'criminal evils which  exist here at present.  Now is an excellent time to initiate this movement, as after navigation opens business men will not  have so much time to consider and  attend to the preliminary work.  S.'iilO a ysur and farms it out for a fraction of  that to a subaltern who is forced to go into  the freighting business at 20c per pound and  loads his dog"; so heavily that incoming  travelers puss him again aud again, and we  have no mail for a month. It's an outrage.  ,        i Citizk.v.  THE PEOPLE'S FORUM.  KICK TNG AGAINST THE PRICKS.  To the Editor of Thk Claim:���  Sii���Things have recently occurred which  have caused the citizensof Atlin and the surrounding district to don their thinking- caps.  Man) wonder what is coming- next." So  many surprises have been sprung since the  opening of the camp that even the sober-  minded and uninjured are ready for any  new thing. Popular indignation has been  well nigh fever heat, and both the Provincial and the Dominion governments have  come in for very just indignation. '" The  welfare of the people is the h'r.st'great law."  When the old latin author penned that liiie  he gave to the world the true principle of  mau's relationship to man us a citizen. But  what have we here 'i The local gover unent  taking from this community in fees for recording for lay-overs, licenses, etc., well nigh  a quarter of u million of dollars���in addition  to two or three million dollars expended by  t!io-,e coming" into the country. And what  return has this community got. An oligar-  cical display ol governmental authority that  recalls darker duys than the nineteenth century has seen, and that would not stand  anywhere but iu an isolated outskirt of  rivili/.ation like this retreat.  TukiS the matter of the appraisements and  adjustments iu the recent so-called land  sale. [���> it not true that the grossest uulaii1-  iics-, was piM-mitfe I or administered in regard to the valuations allowed, and the poor  man seem-, to have gotten i"; in the neck  everj time. Squatters' rights were in every  instance to be given fair consideration. Did  .they receive it? Dare the appraised values  be printed and distributed of the properties  in the various blocks? Was there the semblance of nepotism or favoritism or jobbery  in any of the allowances? Did the poor man  on Pearl street who has cleared a whole corner. 3d feet by ,11)iI feet deep and was only  given a HO foot lot and ���s2S appraisement get  a fair do'il? U this a single instance? Eolio  answers is it?  Then take the determined efforts of the  government officials to divert the busbies,  centre to the south end after the larger expenditures, b.v far the largest in the city,  huve been made b.v those living on Dis.-overy  street. Explanations are in order. -Nature  und common souse would have indicated  that the north end was the end.  I might go on, Mr. Editor, but forbear for  tiie present.  Just one word re the courtesy of the offi-  cials. As a gentleman I protest' against be-  in; snubbed by a ly official who is my servant as well us.the public's, particularly  when I think him not at least any more than  my equal, if that in any sense.  Than another grievance I have against the  member for Burrard andtheOttuvya author-  ties is this infernal mail farce. Was uf.y-  i liiugsd brazen, so contemptible ever known?  A man for a consideration secures a contract  AN   INTOLEHAUL'E   NUISANCE.  To the Editor of the Claim :       ,  Sii���At the request of nearly ail the respectable inhabitants of this section of the  city I write you in their behalf with the object of calling-the attention of the powers  that be to.the intolerable nuisances which  prevail iu and around the so-called Sawdust  Alley.     '������  The action ofjho Commissioner in sending  prostitutes out of the central part of the  city was entirely laudable, but why dump  them on us? Whv not go a little further and  send them outside the city limits? Aro those  unfortunate women kept inside the limit-,' so  that they may be eligible for police raids  and thus be iu a maimer taxed?  Are the authorities aware thut tho keepers  of these brothels are selling liquor right  along in open contempt and defiai.ee of the  law? Which is tho greater crime, tliat'or a  hungry man shooting a duck? Are the  authorities aware that this locality during  ull the hours of the night and morning, Sundays preferred, presents such scenes of way-  down riot, drunkenness, blasphemy and debauchery as would make a half docent devil  blush. If they know such things prevail  why not prevent them? If they don't know,  what are they drawing salaries for? Iu  oithor ease their duties are not being performed.  We pay our taxes aud claim the right to  huve a chance to sleep, which is impossible in  this locality, uuloss perhaps iu the daytime.  We claim to huve some littlo morality and  common decency and object to having  our feelings perpetually shocked by loud  moutlnd voicingsof the most filthy obscenity  and hair-raising blasphemy. Every evening  the late outspewings from the harronu Hock  down here prepared for any deviltry. More  liquor is easily obtained in the brothels and  the'result is pandemonium. We claim the  protection ugainst these crying: evils to  which we are lo;ally entitled, and hope to  get it before half of us are dead from insomnia or are driven into madness.  ClVH'jVS.

The celebration of the Queen's birthday at  Surprise last Monday was a good one. The  delegation from Atlin was not very large,  three ' forming i the party, and the man  on horseback, the got fader to the Victoria  Hotel, brought back a 82.3U prize that he  won in a pistol-shooting competition witn  men wearing suoiv-g-lasses. The host and  his two lieutenant-, are a good combination  and a trio not easily forgotten if you ever go  tneir waj or meet them here below. The arrangement of details, from the cock-pit in  front ot tne hotel, to the prize-ring on the  hill, showed good sporting proclivities. The  day's programme -started out with pistols,  and terminated w ith a concert in the evening, and the c loiaest viand on ttie bill of far"  was this here concert. The music of Surprise  is goo 1, and doubly so when you find that  one guitar iu the company is made from  a Sunlight soap box und the player thereon,  Geo. Gabriel, an old theatre manager. They  have had ample time to practice between  stations on the Stickine and their parody on  "The Man That Broke the Bank of Monte  Carlo," will never grow old. Twill never  age. N. Caspinson. a trick violinist, afforded  more sport, iu imitating a parson preaching,  a donkey braj ing nntl a barber cutting hair  with bones. He surprised everybody with  his excellent renditions and was a fitting  iiuale. Anotlier very unusual contest and  seemingly out of place was the ugly face  competition. .Mrs. Caspinson won this hands  down. The glove contest between Kid Gallagher ami D. Kelly lusted three rounds and  afforded more amusement than others we  nave seen with bigger pretentions.  li'our competitors entered for the pistol-  shooting at 90 yards and J. II. Brow nlee won.  The ham on the greasy pole was won by  W. Hunt of the Stickine.  The liop-step-und-jiimp was won by Geo.  Gabriel.  The ugly face competition was won by Airs.  Caspinson.  In the cockfight D. Kelly won.  Kid Gallagher got a decision and the prize  money over D. Kelly in the three-round bout.  The dinner served atthe Victoria Hotel was  in keeping with the rest of the happy surroundings, and Mrs. Hill's excellent repast is  deserving  of   more than   passing  mention.  .Messrs. Oswald, Bluckwood and Shortil  are good men in any man's'country and  their elForts at entertaining the populace oj  Surprise were thoro-i ���rh' v a'..iismciated.  PINE TREE HOTEL.

The Orator of the Day Touches on  Joe and his Politics.  could give no decision unless something  of 11 permanent nature wus done. Yes, the  fight w as fast and furious ami Lilley got the  first knockdown, while Carroll drew first  blood. The reieree at first gave the decision  us a draw ami then reversed it ami named  Carroll as the winner. They ure going to  have one to a linish soon and we'll let you  know about it. -  The.oelebrution of the pioneer 21th of Ma.v  in A til i >mis fully honored aud no committee  that ever handled sports iu any country did  better work.

Mr. Pringle won friends in the multitude by his reference to tho misgoverned  condition of this country. "I cannot understand how Joe Murtin could have made  such a bungling mistake as he is undoubtedly the father ot. I never imagined that any  part of Canada could be so abused. I hope  I'll bo here and have a vote at the next election," he said with up-raised palm to heaven.  .From this he passed on to the Anglo-American alliance aud brought forth cheers iu re-  - spouse to the statement that the Anglo-Saxon stock must stand united against the  world. Then he eulogized the only woman  iu the world���our Queen���and finished b>  inviting the multitude to join iu singing Gotl  . Save Our Queen, which thej did.

' 'V  fcl   I,  REFUSED TO TREAT HIM  Because He Wouldn't Guarantee  the Cost of Keep  Bob Wright Threatened to Go to  the Indian Village for Relief.  Some local sports took in the boxing con-  tost ut Discovery yesterday. Two good boys  came into the office this morning and this  is what they suid about Tom Lilley's bout  with Tug Carroll: We sot value for our  money and was better than fights nearer to  our door. Tho affair took place in the open  and no admission price was-charged. Tug  Carroll is a big man and weighs 190, while  Tom Lilley tips the scale ut 160. The fight  lusted Hvo rounds uud ut the end of the third  the   refnree  was so mvstifled that he said he  "Bob" Wright of Dyea, but claiming New  Brunswick as Lis home, was out hunting on  Monday and in consequenoe is minus three  ringers on his right hand.  This case is of more than usual interest.  Mr. Wright claims to have called 011 Dr. Monro for treatment aud that gentleman refused to dress his hand. Following are the  tw o sides of the question uud the public ure  left to draw their own conclusion.  "I don't usuully keep shells in a gun," he  suid on Wednesday morning w hilo sitting on  a couch in the upper part of the receutl}  finished Central hotel, "but this time I did.  The gun w as resting on a log aud on the barrel of the weapon was the palm of my right  ha id when she went off. The acoideut occurred about four miles out of town on  Discovery road. I vv as tired und almost ex-  huusted when I met Mr. Rice opposite Rice  & Hustie's Hotel, and he started out with  me to find a doctor. We wont to Dr. Lum-  bert's office und found he had gone to Discovery. From there wo went to Dr. Monro's  office. The place v. us locked up. We then  went to the hospital on Third street. No  doctors wore there. The nurse brought in  some water and I placod my hand in the  basin. A short vv hilo aftor.the doctor���Monro���came in und looked ut my hand and told  me not to bathe it any moro. He then called  Mr. Rice outside and asked him whethor I  had any money or not. I overheurd the  conversation. Mr. Rice replied that he did  not kuuw w hat I had here, but thut I had  good property in Dyeu. The doctor then  came in and told me I hud better go dovvi,  und rustle some mone> und then go and see  tne trustees. I told him thut if I couldn't  find a doctor in town I'd go over to the Indian  village and see Taku Juck. I wus getting  cranky uud weak aud wus looking for a  a place in which to lie. I told the doctor I  djd not want to stay in the hospital; I simply wanted my hand dressed und then leuvo  for homo. I told tho doctor that if I could  shape myself I would buy out the old hospital. I then picked up my old frock, tied  it around my hand and iu company with Mr.  Rice walked out.  THE  DOCTOR'S BTATKMKNT.  Dr. Monro was seen yesterday in regard to  the matter and this is his statement: When  the man camo in I looked at his hand, callad  his friend out into the hull and told him  that if this man camo into tho hospitul someone would have to guarantee his keep. His  friend disclaimed any responsibility iu tho  matter. Wright heard what I suid and made  some remark ubout his having property in  Dyea und being able to buy the whole blank  hospital. I asked him if he would guarantee, that the cost of the dressings would be  paid. He did not reply to the question, but  stated in an imot'uit iiiimner that there wrrr  other doctors in .town. I simply told him  thut he could go w herover he plensed, but  he could huve his hand dressed if he would  guarantee the cost of the dressing. ' He  rolled up his hand and walked, out. The  reason vv hy I, did this wud beoause Rome  months ago I took the man out of a hovel,  dirty and covered with vermin, and attended  him for ubout six weeks for scurvy. He  was kept at great expense and instead of being destitute was possessed of considerable  collate! al. Mr. Graham, Government Agent,  attempted to get some return for the money,  ,but without success. For the service I  rendered I did not even get thanks. He  made no pretentions at being destitute and  I'm perfectly-justified in the course I have  taken. The man bears a very unsavory  reputation. I have been oredibly informed  that he shot a man in Dyea u year or so ago  and consider, him to be a dead beat and  worthless character. I have never yet, and  never w ill refuse to treat any deserving case,  vv bother they have money or not, but in this  instance I was justified in my action.  "There are my books," said the doctor to  the interview er, "and >ou can see for yourself the number'of destitute cases which I  have treated." The number is large, and the  doctor w ants it understood, onco and for all,  that the hospital is private property, not  supported by public funds. The proceeds of  the various charity balls have been turned  over to the Citizens' Relief Committee and  expended bj them as they have seen lit. We  therefore have the right to admit or refuse  anyone we think not deserving.     '  Mr, Rice corroborates Mr. Wright's side of  the case and says they left the hospital and  made their way to a physician's cabin at the  rear of the International hotel. There they  found that the doctor hud no instruments at  hand. From there they wont to Dr. Phillip's  corner Trainor and First, where they pulled  him out of bed "and the operation was performed whereby part of the hand was taken  off.  C.   H/JONES.,    '  '.
