Now is an opportune   moment- to  '    air a  so called." grievance.     It   has  been said   that  the 'Board ol" Trade  .   Council is  a   '/clique."    Tliat this  is not-the case can easily be proved  by.any one desiring to look info the  matteririn -any case, the   remedy is  at band for.   those   citizens who are  dissatisfied,-    The General Flection  ���  takes place  in-Junitary-next, and it  ��� behoves'all good  citizens, who are  .. .   not-members,   to  become  members  ���.,*.aiid*to  exercise* their   privilege by  , v.    voting   for    those    whom they consider ..best   adapted    lo    represent  them in tlie Council.    By thus acting the Board will be strengthened,  numerically and  financially, and it  will   be better enabled lo undertake  and carry on the good   work which  it has shown  its' capability for performing.  ���Those who wish to vote should  become members at once, especially  the "kickers," and if we Atlinites  make up our minds to null together,  as we should, much good will come  of il, and'' the Board will, be in a  belter position to " demand" recognition,- when necessary, Ihan it  now is. Do not wait till too late,  send in your application to the  Secretary and be on hand al the  Annual General Meeting.  To the Board and its Council we  would suggest tliat the public- be  invited to tlie annual meeting. An  exceptional opportunity would thus  be afforded of fully acquainting, at  first hand', many people who have  "a doubt," as to the reason why  the Board is worthy and entitled to  the heartiest in6ral and financial support of the community.

That your correspondent, as well  as the whole community, has cause  for complaint' 1 am quite ready to  admit, but why the Postmaster  should be called iipon to explain  the delinquencies of"a company or  service over which he has no control and'' no connection beyond receiving the mails they bring and  delivering to them, tlin��� outgoing  mail, I cannot conceive: can you?  Had your correspondent enquired  ofthe- Assistant Postmaster anent  this matter when securing the other  information accredited, ' he would  have been treated with equal courtesy and would have learned all we  knew about the situation. If, however, "Aggrieved Subscriber" is  the prominent citizen that your introduction to his communication  su��uesls, he should be a meni)>er of  the Board of Trade, it being the  only organization here that makes  any effort to.conserve and advance  the interests of the community and  district, and whose efforts have  been very effective, adverse insinuations or slatementrf by disgruntled  or disappointed self-seekers to the  contrary notwithstanding, or if he  is a live meml>er he should have attended the regular monthly meeting-of the Board, held on Thursday, 14th inst, when he would have  learned that immedial.: and earnest  action bad l>ecu taken by that body  to lay the situation before the Hon.  the Postmaster-General (and other  officials), both by letter and tele-  grain, seeking the earliest and most  complete,relief obtainable.

C, under  dale of the 30th' 1: llo.: "A' terrible  tragedy lias been enacted here, as a  result of which William -Torrance's  family, is,left without a breadwinner and a dark shadow has been  thrown over the'life of Joim Peacey.  The hitler was mil hunting* yesterday-afternoon.' Coming through  the woods towards Torrance's  farm, he saw what lie supposed wasjeree  a deer; and, taking aim, fired. He  then advanced   to   pick, up his kill,  his friend  and to his   horror   found  Torrance dying, with   a  bullet hole  iu his neck.     . - ���'   .  "Torrance   had   beei:   digging a  made his terrible  ditch -Alien Peacey  mistake.  " Peacey had tlien to perform an  awlul duly. He -went up lo the  Torrance house and told Mrs. Torrance what he had done, and that  even then her husband was lying  cold in death.  " This i.s the second time within  two years that fate has dealt Mrs.  Torrance' a' heavy blow. Two  years ago she lost her Jirst-born in  ail explosipn in '.the Union mines,  and now she i.s a widow with a son  but thirteen years of age, as her  only aid in. .the struggle, she must  make fcr her famiiv."  that Ihe only solution of ihe problem will'be the organization of one  strong company to operate the entire creek*."  It should, perhaps, be observed  that Mr. Brewer excludes from tin's  genera! observation the Stcwudiko  pioposiliou, as appears from the  fcllowing remarks concerning that  property and its possibilities: " It  is evidently an old channel oi' Pine  on its .south side, as is Willow gulch on the north side. Slev-  endike gulch should offer excellent  opportunity for hydraulic milling,  particularly as a bedrock Hume  could be constructed to dump ail  tailings over the falls, thereby  avoiding the difficulties which have  arisen on Pine creek becuise of lack  of adequate dumpage ground."

IJ., in his report on this district to llie'MixiXG  & IJxGi.NKicRiNc Journal* has  the following observations lo make  on the tangled condition.of affairs  on Pine creek: ,  "The   problem    to be solved on  .this creek is how to work il and its  tributaries profitably and avoid law  suits.      It   is    a   serious  question.  _ whether, uuder;tlie present  conditions, where individual owners and  two' '.Corporation.***;   .'ire.endeavoring  lo work on Pine creek, and Willow  gulch at the same time, satisfactory  "results lo all   concerned can -be attained.      The    individual    owners  work   with   ordinary   sluice boxes,  using water .without  pressure purchased  from, the owners of ditches,  while the corporations are working  ���by   hydraulic   method,,   depositing  the tailings  in.the bed   of the creek  to the detriment  of   the   ordinary  placer miner,  who is  quick   to   resent such interference. The management   of   the   hydraulic companies  argue that  because  of the depth of  the  bedrock,' insufficient dumpage  facilities and  scarcity of water, the  ground should not be considered as  placer, but should   be leased by the  Government  for hydraulic mining.  Even   were this done,' if more than  one company   engaged   iu   bedrock  ii  '.ning. and.  hydraulic mining the  qnestion  of   dumpage  would   still  prove   a -.serious ' ol>stacle, because  operations  carried   on   by  a company   working     the    lower   creek  woi-ikl interfere with   any workings  the upper   portion,    and   vice  a.
