Good Kooins to Kent���Hy, tho Day, Week or Month nt reasonable rates.  During the session of the Legislature of '99-1900, a charter was  granted to J. A. Mara, ex M.P.,  F. S. Barnard, ex M.P., and Capt.  John Irving, ex M.L.A., to construct and operate a line of railway  from some suitable point on Kiti-  maat Inlet, iu the Coast district, to  Hazelton on the Skeena river.  Anplication   is   this session   to  be  - r c  made for a': extension of this charier from Hazelton, by the most  reasonable and . feasible route to a  point at or near .the. Northern  boundary line of the Province of.B.  C, at or near Teslin lake or Atliu  lake, or both, ancl also from said  Hazelton, by the most reasonable  and feasible route to a point at or  near the Eastern boundary line of  the.. Province, via the Skeena, Ba-  bhiej_Driftwqod, Omeneca and Fin-  ley rivers to the Peace, river pass,  theiiee'eastef]y''to'a point at or near  the Eastern boundary of.t'he-Province;'with authority to maintain  aud operate branch lines from any  point of the proposed route. All  other powers and privileges usually asked for in such applications  are requested of the Government.  It is supposed that the request  for amendment to the original charter and the present one. is for the  purpose of-working in conjunction  with parties  iu the East, who have  Machinery > Coming- iu . for Fine(  Creek Benches���R.

If our suppose  tion is correct,' we are justified in  stating that the combination of the  several charters will form one of  the most "valuable railroad franchises on the American continent.  As far as this section of the line is  concerned, it is to be hoped that  the Government in granting the  charter, will bind the company to  commence construction within a  reasonable time, in order that we  may have some assurance the new  charter, to be applied for, is not for  speculative purposes only.

It was our expectation to have  had some telegraphic news from  the outside this week, but a break  has occurred near Hazelton, which,  to the hourAof going to' press,.has  not been repaired. The local opera  tor advises us-that, when communication is again restored, he believes  there will be little or no further delay this winter/and that we may  look for the finest telegraph service  in Canada. ��� ;   ,  H.   H.   Fraser,    who   has   been  here for the last  three seasons, recently left (or outside points to purchase machinery'  for   his  property  on     Pine,    above   Willow.    ' Mr.  Fraser and   his   partners    Messrs.  ,Sweet, Christie, Fleming   and Ber-  ger, this   summer   acquired   some  bench ground nearly opposite  Gold  Run.    They have   run a drift over  a hundred feet and struck rich pay,  which,    they   claim,   will   run   an  ounce   a   day to   the  man.   They  consider", the -ground     sufficiently  good-  to   warrant   the   expense of  cars,    rails   and    other    necessary  machinery.    -Mr. Fraser intends returning   before   the  .freeze-up and  will get in his  plant as soon asjthe,  ice^holds.- . A number   of men will  be employed during the winter.    , "'  ..AJn an interview reported.in an ex-  change,  R.D. Fetherstonhaugh ��� is  stated to  have -sai'd. that Atlin will  within the ��� next ' two  years prove  richer than   the Klondike, and.that  the district has never yet beeu gone  over by practical miners, as only a  few such men are in the camp today.  Speaking generally   of   the  camp,  Mr.   Fetherstonhaugh  stated . that  the   legal1   tangle   had     seriously  handicapped and  set  back the district. ' Atliii   was   not   sufficiently  represented   at   Victoria,   and sufficient   discretionary   powers  were  not given ' to   the   Gold   Commissioner.  The chief thing complained  of   was   that proper judgment was  not used iir granting   water  rights;  mauy men had"obtained   hydraulic  leases and water privileges who had  never spent a dollar   on   the   properties,   but   were    holding   them  purely   for   speculation, to the detriment   of the   bona   fide' miner.  What   was   greatly .heeded was a.  proper interpretation "of the Water '  Clauses Consolidation Act.  According to an interview in  Seattle, Mr. J. Francis Lee, Traffic  Manager of the W. P. & Y. Ry.,  in summing up his remarks regarding the business outlook in the  north said: " One of the most prosperous camps outside of the Klondike is at Atlin, which gives the'  promise of being one of the greatest  quartz camps in the country. Many  stamp mills would have gone in  this year except for the set back received on .account of. the strike in  the metal trades. I have estimated  that fully. 80 per cent of the mining-  machinery ordered for the North  has uot^been shipped 011 account of  this strike:' It has had the effect  of greatly retarding the development planned fortius season.''   ;i-.. ��� >-���'!..������ I.��.<  IS  I,  ay  -4  r-f ���  t  Sft'!  ���mnontimSniiift*  mliaH&a. . .���*'. ��� ���. ,-__AA  ATLIN,  B.C..

A" meeting  of citizens will be held iii the Court  House at 11 o'clock on that day for  the purpose  of electing   three Fire  Wardens.    As   the duties   of such  wardens has much to do in providing  'against   the   liability   of   fire  none but   the most conscientious ot  men  'should   be   nominated.    The  duties are uot hard but   the powers  of such    wardens   are .almost autocratic.   .-'.Tliti ! .following    passage  from the Act regulating   the matter  is of' interest:  "To  direct. aud_ regulate- 'in    the. to��vu or its vicinity  the position.of stoves, fire-places or  furn aces,' chimneys, stove-pipes and  smoke-stacks     and     the   removal,  change cr alteration of- the same or  any of.them or the   position or condition of them or  any of them, aud  further direct   that  anything  shall  be   done by."way of   precaution  .to  avert  fire." .-.   For   non-compliance  to the directions  ot a majority, with  the-warden^-'a1 person   is liable to.a  fte'halt.y ot  $50.    So  much., for the  duties of the' wardens, but .the .first  requirement  of   nominees ��� is   that  they should" faithfully perforin these  duties, looking   towards the  safety-  ot life and   property.    The  general  public will be in hearty accord with  all steps, taken in their, interest.    In  more than one   instance in-the congested part of Atlin   we knew, that  radical   changes   should at once be  made, and it is more, by good, luck  ihan by good guidance that serious  fires have  .no.t   wiped   out these, localities.    Every   male, citizen, over  iS years, is entitled to vote, and see  to it that the. best men we can have  are   nominated.    Nominations   are  to be sent to the Government Agent  011 or before the hour of meeting.

In   recent   issues  we   have  announced  our    intention  of giving  the   public   a  telegraphic    service  this winter, and we have fortunately b.'ien enabled   to  retain   the services of one of 'the be^t known correspondents ou   the coast.    It now  rests with . the   public to make the  venture a success.  We will guarantee our share if you will do yours.  We have never gone to our patrons  in vain, and do not expect to cE so  on this occasion.  S.S. Hating In Dry Dock.  -In a delayed telegram, dated ,Oct.  ��� 18, from; -Vancouver,'[.'it is reported  that the C...,.E.. ;N:.;...,Co.'s 'steamer  Hating arrived, lin  port under  her J mail service and direct  telegraphic  With   the   steady    approach   of  winter,'  aud   the    knowledge   that  the last boat  leaves Atlin   on Monday next, it becomes a very natural  question to want lo  know  how we  are going to fare   with  our  winter  mail service.      \\"e   have,    in   this  connection made'strict inquiry, and  in our own small way  advised Post  Office   Inspector   Fletcher,  during  his .visit to   Atlin    last   summer, of  .what wc considered the best   policy  to pursue for the   forthcoming winter.    Complete arrangements   have  now been made  so   that there may  be no  hitch   in   the  receiving  and  despatching of mails, and it may be  of interest to know what   has   been  done in this   connection   by   the C.  I). Co.,    who   have   the   mail   contract���now merged   into the'W. P.  & Y.- Ry..   According' to an interview,   published   in   the Sica.tti.j-  Tiuks, of   the    :Sth   ulto.,  Mr. J.  Francis   Lee,   Traffic Manager   of  the W. P. &'Y. Ry:,   has   this   to  say :���" During the   winter season of  1901-2 the mail service-department  o'f the W. P.* & Y.   route' will* operate a' first-class relay stage' service  in connection,with the-hijail'.between  White   Horse   aud   Dawson, carrying  passengers   and'.express,   and  running on schedule  time.    To establish this service a splendid equipment has been -provided   aud  every  possible  provision   has  been made  for the safety and comfort of travelers, and for  the ��� maintenance   of a  fast and  regular  service:    All   the  drivers who will be employed  during the season   are   men   who have  been  previously   in   the  employ of  the'mail   service   department and  have proven themselves thoroughly  competent and reliable."  As far as Atliu is concerned, a biweekly mail  service will" be maintained   throughout   the  winter  for  all first class mail matter aud newspapers, preference   being' given to  single papers  and  packages.    The  carriers'to be employed on this service are:   Malcolm   Macrae,  A. N.  Brown, Norman Rant  and  a man  .irorn White Horse.    The  first  re-  .gular mail will leave Log Cabin on  Tuesday morning  next  for  Atliu.  It is understood  that   the   parcels  post to Atlin will   not apply to the  winter service, but anyone desirous  of having parcels sent in may do so  by having such parcels addressed to  Log Cabin and make arrangements  with the carriers to bring  thein in.  In the case of dutiable goods, it  is  well to state ; that   Log   Cabin has  been  made a Money  Order  Office,  so.that, instead   of   having  to send  cash, postal orders may be mailed.

IRELAND,  Religious, Political  and .Educational.  An Able Lecture Delivered by Rev.  J. Russell Before an Appreciative Audience.  -On   Wednesday   evening  ol this  '    week a lecture was delivered by the  Rev. Mr.  Russell   in   St. 'Andrews  Church, before one of tiie  largest'  ��� gatherings ever   assembled in Atliii  at a similar entertainment "*  Rev. F. L. Stephenson  occupied  the chair.     Before the lecturer'took  the platform, a number   of musical  selections.and  recitations were rendered,  which   were   most favorably  received.    Dr. Cameron opened the  programme   with a beautifully rendered selection .011   the ^concertina,"  and for an encore treated   his   andi-  nce to a  piccolo  solo.. r Dr.   Lewis  gave a   humourous   recitation,--entitled, A-n -.Irish. Oral 'Examination,  which   was   productive-'of.;   much"  laughter.    Mr: E. J. Thain. officiated at the graniaphoiie/which, needless to say, was in   excellent voice,  despite the wintry night, .and some  really good  "records" were given,  . Miss Hughes,- sang Kathleen   Ma-  vourneeu,   and   distinguished herself   in    her   encore,   Thro' Tara's  Halls." "Ethel Pillinan's  recitation,  though she. seemed a little" nervous  aud required  the   prompter's assistance,  was very,well received.   Mr.  Stables, M. L. A., an  old standby,  favored the company with   an Irish  song, ��� following   it  with   In   Our  Kail Yard, which,   from, a Scotch-  mail, could'nt be beat..   Mr. Lumsden took the palm in  his.rendering  of I'm'Off to Philadelphia and  Kil-  arney's Lakes, both of which were  most beautifully suiigv   Two organ  s'olos were  fully  appreciated  from  Mr. Ashtou.  ;  In his introduction of the  principal   feature   of. the' evening's entertainment,"     Irelandj ;' 'Religious,  Political-  -'and'- -Educational! ' Mr.  Russell told some   very humourous  .tales.-aud 'mentioned, some  of. the  igreat   Irishmen   of   ihe  day, who  we're famous in the  social,  political  and religious.life of the country and  community.    Even our local heads  of the  Church   were  Irishmen,   so  also was the  Bench ' represented in  Mr. Woods.    The  religious  life in  Ireland was lucidly dealt  with and  figures  were  quoted  showing  the  religious denominations existant in  Ireland.    Each  of���the   three   prominent   creeds   laid   claim  to  the  life's   work,  of St.   Patiick, .but it  was of no  moment  to   the speaker  whether the  Patron Saint was sent  by the   Pope, the' Episcopal or the  Presbyterian Church,   sufficient  to  him was the fact   the   Ireland   was  brought from the darkness of heathenism to the light of Christianity.  Oii the political life of the country  the speaker dealt at  length.    That  Irishmen   are    "agin   the govern  ment" is mainly due to the fact that,  unlike .Scotland, Ireland is a conquered eounlry, ancl "lo the victor  belongs the spoil," but the Irishman cannot see it that way, hence  he cannot think otherwise than to  be against the government, especially when every Irishman is a politician. 'The vaiious measures novy  before the British Parliament, looking towards the alleviation'of distress^ iu'Ireland, were fully gone into, but, iu Air. Russell's opinion,  the country will never piosner-as  it ought to until Home Rule is established.' On Educational matters,  Mr.,Russell, owing to the lateness  of the hour, confined, himself to the  rapid progression" made in the improvement of this important branch  of social life.  The lecture was most ably delivered, ancl the appreciation shown  by the very large audience, to say  nothing of the tidy sum realized  for the church ought'to'be a stimulant for'Mr. Russell to further favor  the people of Atliu. -  rk'K.

Dawson is.going, to make a record for ' itself this season in its  gold shipments. Last year's output is given at $22,500,000, while  it is estimated the clean-up - will  reach'the* twe:;fy-five million dollar  mark this year. The shipment for  the-four-months, ending September  30th, is as follows :  Juiie  July ��� -  August -  September  Total  $5,9:8,000  9,725,000  3,000,000  3,000,000  $21,643,000  The foregoing figures are from  the records iu the Gold Commissioner's office in, Dawson, where  certificates must be obtained by  everyone shipping or taking out  gold under penalty of forfeiture of  the dust for non-compliance. The  figures, therefore are indisputable.  These figures do not include the  gold taken from -the Stewart river  or the Big 'Salmon, nor, of course,  from the Alaskan Yukon, which,  if ennumeralcd, would considerably  swell the grand total.-  ���Of the shipments made in May  .there i.s .no- accurate account, as  the compulsory export certificates  only became operative when navigation opened. The shipments for  October, it is expected, would exceed the' previous month, as the  banks and trading companies would  likely take advantage of the last opportunity to- ship what gold had  accumulated in their safes.  to his well-earned laurels., . ��� This  time it is in ihe'naluie of a big  strike of gas at what is known'as  Bryan Heights, about four miles  from the town of Velasco in Brazoria county. The 'heights' is a  slight rise in the praiiie, only a  few feet above sea level,,but of considerable area. When Capt. Lucas  first visited the region he predicted  the ' heights ' would prove to overlie a large reservoir of oil aud gas.  The gas has bsen found under an  enormous pressure. A despatch to  to the Houston 'Post' states that  on September 23rd the well, which  was being drilled by Capt. Lucas  and his associates, stuck a heavy  gas flow that broke through with  an awful roar, coming out of the  10-inch pipe with such-force as to  Jjlow out 400 feet of the 4-inch casing the driller had staited down in  .order .to run through- what 'he  .thought was^he cap rock to the oil  stratum.��� No attempt has- been  made to' shut, off the gasl The  .drillers are reported to be waiting  for the flow of 'gas' to stop, so that  they can continue the well to the  oil horizon. The reservoir' of gas  was struck at 500 feet.  Capt. Lucas  is   the   husband of  Mrs. H. F. Lucas.  Bilker & Parrotf,  Livery Stables.
