Opposite the mouth of Gold Run,  on the north side of Pine creek  and about a mile above Discovery,  a regular village has sprung into  existence within ..the last two  mouths, which reminds one of the  early days of the camp. Rumours  reached us last week of such fabulously rich elirl being taken from  the drifts that guards had been put  ou the dumps to see that the gold,  which was visible in every bucket,  was not being stolen !��� . Our Editor  decided to pay a visit,, to this wonderful section of the camp, that lie  mig'ht be in a position to prove or  disprove the rumour.  . To those of our readers who read  the series of articles, under the  heading of " Allin, Its Geology and  Auriferous Deposits," by Mr. Frank  Weir, of Stevendike, and who have  closely followed the progress and  development of the camp; it will al  once be seen that .the cause "of the  activity is nothing more than the  discovery of the gutter of one of the  primary .auriferous "deposits of the  district, which, too, .is most likely  to be the same or a continuation of  Gold Run.  ��� Last winter H. E. Symcns and  partners run in a prospect drift  with .very profitable results. Work  on this and other drifts by the same  men, have been run more or less  ever since, with good returns, until  flooded out by Bracken's ditch.  The results obtained from this  ground were so encouraging that  a number of claims have been taken  up and work begun. The following is a synopsis of the Editor's observations:'  Messrs. Symons, Gilmore and  Beaty' have an incline shaft about a  hundred feet iu and are on good  pay,'although not yet in the old  channel. - ������  Pete McDonald and Thompson  are working in Ihe shaft and bedrock tunnel, owned by Symons &  Co., which was flooded by Bracken's ditch last spring, and are  making big pay.  Messrs. Green, Loop, Markwell  and Brown, who worked the creek  claim, where the Gold Run bridge  crosses Pine, and made money, are  now drifting into the bench and expect to strike Ihe pay.immediately.  McDonald and- McDonald have a  shaft and bedrock tunnel and are  about 150 feet in. . They are doing  well. '���'���������..���'  Telford   brothers  have an ii.cliue  Continued on last page.  Just prior to the close -f navigation Lieut. Bradley, R.N., of Daw-  sou and London, paid Atlin a visit  with the object of seeming an i-.p-  tion on the several leases on 'frond  Gulch.- On the satisfactory completion 'of his mission he left al  once for the Coast. Lieut. Hiadley  was associated with the late Mr.  Thomas Batenian in the taking up  of some of these leases, but in order  lo make them workable the'amalgamation of all the ground ou  Trond Gulch and Fourth of July-  was deemed advisable. The whole  properly, comprising some 2000  acres it is expected, will be taken  up by one large concern. Extensive prospecting will be conducted  next season with the view of determining the most favorable place to  commence operations. Ample provision has been made fonwaler,  aoiilc���cJooo'-ino-iBh���-in "all having  been granted'to' the   amalgamated  nroperlies."'  ~  1  Messrs.. .Oliver and Grime, ol"  Victoria and Atlin, respectively,  aVe-agents for:-the vendors of the  Trond Gulch section of the properly, the lower portion being controlled by prominent local mining  and business men.  Alter many mouths of inaclivilv,"  ���the Imperial group on Monro  mountain, is ' again to be actively  exploited. Mr. Win. Pearse, of  Discovery, ha"s taken a workiu<>-  bond on the property, on Jiehalf of  some clients in London. Work  will be resumed early next month.  Though there- is no cash" payment  on the bond we are informed that  .the terms are highly satisfactory to  all parties concerned.  Frozen Up!  Allan"Rupert   had   rather an experience this   week,   which   but for  .  ������ ���. . .  timely   assistance   might   have had  serious consequences. Some two  weeks ago' he went over lo Torey  Inlet -oiv a- hunting expedition,  leaving bis-.boat,some miles up the  inlet. .'-Wljen. lie returned from the  mountains'-he found tbeinlet frozen  and he could not, drag his boat to  the lake: For four clays'he kept  big fires going on Ihe beach opposite Atlin and used flags, hoping  to atlract attention and obtain assistance. .The timely arrival of  Fountain,^and;. Clark from Copper  island, on ..Wednesday possibly-  saved his life. '  G  InWA'sS"  m^��Zsm^m^&mm^mm&i��i \o  ATUN,  B.C.. SATURDAY.

No lime,  however, should be losl.    The present period of inflation   cannot last  for   ever ;  there  are ominous signs  of collapse in "Germany and Russia,  while of   late   railwav   earninsrs in  England have begun   lo  decline, a  sure   presage   that   the .inevitable  cycle   of depression   is not   far off.  British Columbians will have themselves   lo   blame if, when   the hard  limes     arrive,    they   suffer    more  severely than lhe rest of us.    There  is some talk of establishing a Cabinet on strict party lines.    The   necessity of introducing  partyism   is  not so imperative as the duty'which  devolves   upon   all   good   men   of  rallying round  some man  of character and giving the communtity a  much-needed rest from turmoil and  blatherskite."  A report has reached us from Hie  outside, but which, we hope, is  withoul foundation, thai Gold Commissioner Graham intends to place  his resignation in the hands of the  Department al the end of next season. He will return next spring  and remain here till October, when,  it is said he will leave Allin for  good. Mr. Graham" is now enjoying a well-earned holiday in lhe  Old Country.  ,111 no place heavier than one per  cent, and it described as " a very-  nice run up a valley.".  .Some distance beyond Hazellon,  in the Buckley" river valley, extensive coal measures have been located  and will be actively exploited by  the New Vancouver Coal Co. An  expert has been making examinations over these prospective coal  fields. He states thai it is altogether probable work will be  begun next season iu developing  the property.  Thus-it would seem that  the first  1 20 miles of lhe road is easy of construction,   while* the   prospects   .nil  along that distance are   sufficiently  encouraging to   justify   the undertaking.     It is a far cry from Hazel-  ton to Atlin, but it is staled lhal in  the intervening   distance   there is a  country,    once   opened up,   which  will 'offer a railroad'   the   most   encouraging  returns; while,   without  doubt, the Atlin   district, in a very-  few   year's, will   be a shipper to an  exleut sufficient to warrant a direct  railroad from the coast.  Other districts in the Province,  such as East Kor.leuay, West Kool-  euay and lhc Boundary sections,  could not show anything like the  prospects now visible here when  they were each lapped by branches  of the C. P. R. Look at the prosperity* of these sace sections today!  Allin's best days are still ahead  and a direct .all-Canadian railway-  will hasten thai lime.  ��� IHE ���HANH  ilOTEL  FINEST'EQIJIPPED HOTEL IN THE NORTH.

The opening dance given by Mr,  Hastie, at lli.i Grand  Friday.*, veiling, was.one of lhe successes- of the season. -A- larger  gathering ol" the fair sex was never  before assembled in Atlin, nor was  ,0 more enjoyable time ever.had by  the participants, than that afforded  by lhc popular .host of that deservedly popular hostelry. At midnight an excellent supper was  served, to which ample justice was  done. It is with pleasure we learn  thai it is Mr. Haslie's intention to  give dances at regular intervals  throughout lhe winter.  Thanksgiving Day was fitly celebrated on Thursday in both Atlin  and Discovery. A short service-  was given by Rev. Mr. Stephenson  in the English   Church iu the fore-  XJ(*T!f"'**   is herpliv  ' "   '\iill be nui'te In  noon. In the evrening a concert  was held, under the auspices of" the  Presbyterian Church. The church  was comfortably filled by an appreciative 'audience. Rev. Mr.  Russell occupied the chair. A:; excellent programme of songs, recitations, instrumental and gramaplioue  selections was rendered. Special  mention should be made of the  chorus of the school children, "The  Maple Leaf," followed by an encore,'  " Britai.uia"," Maggie McDonald's  song, with her encore, -'Comin'  thro' the Rye;" Dr.' Cameron's  concertina solo and Mr. Lumsder.'s  song and encore. Mr. Handlke's  violin selection's were very much  appreciated.  NOTICE.  In our last two issues letters  have appeared- upon .the subject of  ,, the mail delivcrv in Atlin, and we  have been looking for communications taking the mail carriers' side  of the question, but, so far, none  ��� have come lo hand.   ���  We have taken "steps to find out  the true condition of affairs existing,  on the winter trail from Log'Cabin-  to Atlin and learn thai there is  much to be said iu extenuation of  the carriers.  In the   first  place, the  new trail  cut at the expense *pf the   Govern-'  ment from Log Cabin   to   Hale's is  described   as   worse   than .r.o trail.  Trees   have, unquestionably,   been  cut, but the stumps, most of them  over lwo feet high, have  been left,  and, owing to the very slight snowfall up to the present, these-stumps.  make travelling with anything of a  load,  not   only   difficult   but Mati-"  gerous,, "the_ dogs-get torn and cut,  to sav nothing  about  the breaking  of sleds. ...  Again, when the carriers leave  either end for their trips they have  no idea what they have lo encounter en route, as may" be instanced from the expe:iences> met  with by the outgoing and incoming  carriers this week. Brown and  A bey left here Monday morning  with a good mail and on getting  ���a few miles beyond Taku encountered ice, which was too thick to  break through, yet barely strong  enough to travel ou with safety.  They hauled Iheir canoe, with thej  mail in it, ou a sled for seventeen  miles, along the edge of Taku Arm,  but the ice becoming dangerous,  they packed the mail on their backs  to Golden Gate  had run out, and they could uot  then make Hale's,-so had lo double  back to lhe Frenchman's, six miles  below Taku. They were to leave  there, ou the return at two o'clock  Thursday morning, but our iiifor-'  iformant expresses a doubt as to  thcirbeing able lo get to Hale's  until the ice becomes solid. With  McRae and Rani the experiences  were much the same. Otler lake  was ���.���'neilher-. frozen nor yet open  and they'had to come down the.  east, side -of the '."lake, which is  -strewn "with boulders. They broke  their way through the ice at Golden  Gate, and when lhe ice was strotig  'enough, Rant kept in front of the  ���dogs', testing'the ice, till they came  to open water again. They did  not reach Atlin till lale on Wednesday night, and left On Thursday  morning for Log Cabin.
