The old man's head seems to be  turned by the flower wreaths with  which he has been crowned hy his  Indian admirers.  The above  is  from the Hamilton  (Ontario).   Herald.    Kier    Hardie,  after a few weeks in   India,   knows  just as much about the Indian problem as do men from  the  East  who  come out to British Columbia,   stay  two days, then go back   home  and  write solutions of the Asiatic .coolie  problem.    No great race or   industrial or governmental  problem   has  ever deen solved by men   like   Kier  Hardie and the well-meaning Eastern Canandian sentimentalists  who  come to British Columbia with their  perculiar notions about the race and  industrial questions that are now to'  the front in this province.    If home  rule is good for Ireland and India.it  should be a pretty  good   thing  for  British    Columbia.    And  if given  home rule, the people ofthe province  would  settle     the    Asiatic   coolie  question within thirty days, and settle it iu such a way that the Ontario  sentimentalists    would    get   good-  siezed doses of the medicine the yare  so willing that the people of British  Columbia should   keep   on   taking.

Regardless of whatsomc of our  citzens may thiink, placer mining,  and not "bean peddling," or any ol  the numerous vocations followed by  those not directly engaged in milling our chcif industry. The Mines  support our merchants of both wet  and dry ware-;, our sawmills and  professional classes, besides being  the main source of Government  revenue. The sooner all learn to appreciate these facts and live up to  them the better for the industry.  During the past season all of the  operations, with one or_ two exceptions, the reasons for which will  appear later, have been a decided  success, in most instances an advance on previous year's when all  things are.taken into consideration.  There have been some somewhat  scarlling suprises, due to both ignorance of the laws governing placer  mining and also of the laws governing practical business meathods as  applied to placer mining, in other  words, sending a boy to do a man's  work.  The first surprise of the season  came as somewhat of a "jolt" to  Mr. .Obalski, manager for the  Societe Minirere, the French Syndicate, operating oil Boulder Creek,  on his return to Atliu the later part  of April last.  On his arrival here found that' a  goodly portion of the placer claims  held by the company on Boulder  had lapsed, in fact had lapsed in  some instances over a year previous and -wonder of wonders for  Atlin* had so soon as discovered  been relocated, "Jumped" he called  it, but relocated is nicer.  Anther surprise for the same  Gentleman, was this Fall, on working up"to the end of their Creek  ground, to run into a lot of timbers  in a bench claim belonging to the  Company to find the same all drifted  out, and by the state of tlie timbers  the work must have been done  several years ago.  YVho was to blame for the first  error is rather hard to say, at all  events gross carelessnes is to be laid  at somebodys door, and in the  meantime, the company are looser  the ground in question. It looks  like, "Penny wise and pound foolish." Better to pay some one in the  business to look after titles then to  loose ground. As to the as to  the working out of the Bench  in question, well that was done by  parties now out of the camp, and  the company was not responsible  for the thieving propensities of  some of their neighbors,  From a mining point of view the  Company has had a very successful  season. During the last winter  some,8 to 10 men were engaged  drifting on the creek property, with  very handsome results, to the miners  who had the lay and to the company for percentage, altho it was  a mistake to drift out ground that  really should have been piped,  there being enough ground there  that is easierto drift than too pipe,  owing to the amount of gravel to be  handled with only a small and limited quantity of water.  This sping the Company   started  operatoins Early in May aiid continued till the middle of October,  altho during September and October the,water was very low, and  piping was carried on . under great  difficulties owing to the large amount  of heavy material that had to be  handled by hand.  Twelve men were engaged by the  Company during the summer season  and some 80,400 cubic yards of  gravel were moved, not a bad showing. The total amount of gold recovered Tor ihe year being $41,000,  00 at a profit of $16,000,00  During the present winter ' the  Forman Mr. J.' Traber will - work  some 6 to 10 men drifting on a portion of the Company's ground on  which he has a lay. This ground  cannot be piped to advantage but  should be drifted with considerable  profit to the laymen.  Next season it is'the intention of  the management to work'' on the  East limit of the creek lease and  probably continue the present cut  on the West limit up through Tel-  fords Creek claims and the bench  claims of the Company adjoining  same, and also to open up the  deep  o;oooc-r.^o*cioc<'S>a0a-��--ooG-'5'cea-��c'.-��> x ���9.c(-*:o;*��o;*��<>o:-��>��<>j:(<>!a<>oc>"o-!>-':<'o-*c^  The Atlin Market Co., Ltd.
