Shut  out from civilization lor many  weeks; no mail, lo telegrams, no  ���nothing. Well might llie.se morbid  souls quote lrom Shakespeare,  "Now is the winter of oiir-discon-  tenl."  Fortunately, we are a hopeful  and a cheerful community, and as  "grumblers" can't stand' the "ler-  rors" of a northern winter, they  got out.  .We are, at Ihe moment, practically a world in ourselves. '.Phe  total population is in the neighborhood of 600���slightly in excess of  last winter. Of these, fully 250  are working on the creeks, which,  for a summer camp, is a good showing. In this regard, it is pleasing  to know that the majority of men  are working in pay, while good  wages are being paid.  On each successive year, the  boats have delayed their last trip a  few days or weeks behind its predecessor. The completion of the  W. P. & Y. line lo White Horse  has had an appreciable effect in  lengthening the navigable season,  and, unquestionably, as our immense mineral resources become  opened up, the boats will continue  lo run till tht: lakes close up. When  that time comes we may see a competing line to Atlin actually under  construciion ! We have been endeavoring to obtain figures as to  the freight traffic to Atliu for thc  season, but we cannot'ascertain  these, with any degree of accuracy;  roughly speaking, about 2000' tons  entered; an outlay in freight  charges of not less than $150,000 !  Calculations have been as to what  the freight charges mean per capita, and 20 cents a day is what we.  each pay to the railroad.  The Scotia made her last trip on  Tuesday, 5II1 inst., taking out  about fifty people,'together1 with all  the employees of the Company.  We learn that they had quite a time  in getting the Scotia on the ways,  she slipped back into the water  after she was supposed lo he comfortably fixed for the winter. The  Gleaner did not get away till noon  on Wednesday, and the passengers  are said to have had a fine time  waiting. Tom Sagemau is left in  charge ofthe local freight business.  Owing to the poorness ofthe trails  the winter mail service has not yet  got into shape, but the first outside  mail is looked for tonight,  British Reverse in Africa.  I.aie advices, under dale of Pretoria, Oct. 31st., Ivord' Kitchener  telegraphed .as' follows: "I have  just heard of severe raid made on  rear guard of Col. Benson's column  when twenty miles northwest of  Bethel, near Brakc-.ulaadle, during  thick mist. Strength of enemy is  reported to have been about a ���  thousand. They rushed gnus wiih  rear guard, but it is uncertain  whether .they were able lo remove  them. ' I hear our casualties weie  heavy. Col Benson was wounded,  but not seriously. Relieving column  will reach him this morning." *  Later. '.'Col. Barton, who marched from   Constabulary ' line yesler-  _day,      reached   Benson's     column  earl}'this   morning, -Friday, unopposed.    He   reports   that Col. Benson   died   of- his wounds."    l;ord'  Kitchener   then   gives   names of 13  other officers   who  were wounded,  most of,them seriously.    Then an-���  nounces that 54 nou-commis-s-oned  officers r.ii.-*r men-killed,, 160 wou,.--:-!***r-=  ed, adding   that   four of the  latter  have since died of their wounds.  Paid the Penalty.

The lowest recorded was r.  above during the' night of the 1st,  and the highest, 35 above, at noon  on the. Sth. There have been two  slight snowfalls, and the prevailing-  wind was northerly until the  8th, Nvhen the wind veered round  to the south, producing an agreeable change in the weather.  A. G.

Too much care cannot be used in  thus safeguarding the interests of  the community and the co-opera-  ���tiou-of���tiTepublic should be extended to the Fire Wardens who  have l>eeu appointed to enquire into  and examine the different buildings  in the city for the purpose of having rectified any defects through  which danger mav arise.

The first anniversary of the  birth of Edward VII. since he became King of the British Empire,  will be celebrated in a fitting manner as becomes the'eitizeus of Atlin.  A smoking concert will be held, in  the Atlin Entertainment Hall this  evening, which, from the enthusiastic way it has been taken hold of,  is sure to be a success. In this far  off sectioirof the King's domains,  we have not hitherto failed to show  our loyalty, and will not do so now.  Look for Platinum   in   Ycur.  Gravels.  The great increase  in   the  use of  platinum,   coupled   with   the   fact  that the production is stationary, or  decreasing,   is   raising the price of  of the  metal   rapidly.    It   is   now  more valuable  than   gold ��� $20 to  $2i   per   ounce,   ingot    platinum.  Hritish    Columbia    and   California  can both increase   their   production  if the   miners   will    undertake   to  save  the small amounts recovered  with   placer   gold.    In British Columbia,    iu   this   and   the Cariboo  districts,   the  amount  of platinum  caught with the gold is   quite  considerable,   and   it   certainly should  not cost to save in  parting from the  gold at thc  mines  but a fraction of  what it now sells for.    In  the Klamath region of California  the  proportion   with   the  gold is less, and  miners say it has   not  paid  to save  when parting.     Possibly  that may  have   been   the   case   when it was  only worth $5 or $6 an ounce crude,  but the   value   has   appreciated so  much now that the business of saving it seems commercially justified.  It is of interest to know that laws  are now being  enacted   in Europe,  owing to the limited supply of plati-  A meeting of citizens was held at  the Court House on Tuesday morning last at which three Fire Wardens were elected for ,the -ensuing  year. Nominations of Messrs. J.  Kirkland, Pilling and Olive were  received ��� and these ocntlemeii were  duly declared elected.  The Waidens held their first  meeting on Thursday evening and  decided to make a house to house  inspection, commencing this afternoon, for the purpose of satisfying  themselves that all precautious are  being taken by householders'to prevent fire.  Extensive improvements are being made upon ,the Fire Kail, in  order to prevent the lire engine  from becoming frozen when the  cold weather comes on. Double  wall are. being built, with a sawdust filling; a heater has teen donated by Mr. Cross, and a fire will  be kept going night and day. The  sum of $75*lias been appropriated  for the necessary improvements.  Mr.'Olive has donated, the first  month's supply of cord-wood, and  similar donations are'respectlully  solicited. Runners have been made  for the fire engine, and these will  at once be put on.  The citizens may rest assured  that every possible precaution is  being taken by the Fire Chief so  that the engine and appliances will  be in readiness at all times.  The following is taken from the  last Act, respecting the prevention  of fires in unincorporated towns:  The Fire Wardens, or a majority  of them, shall have the following  powers:  (a) To visit and inspect . at all  reasonable hours, all buildings and  erections in the town or its vicinity:  (,!>) To direct and regulate in the  town or its vicinity, thc position of  stoves, fire-places or furnaces, chimneys, stove-pipes and smoke-stacks,  and the removal changeoralteration of the same, or any of them, or  the position or condition or them,  and further direct that anything  shall be done by way of precaution  to avert fire;  Co) Generally, to take such steps  for the prevention of "fire in the  town, or to check its spreading, as  they may think fit.

The   hardness   ot  rock,  fineness   of   the   particles of  gold; nnd   the   relative   hardness of  the lode-enclosing   rocks, compared  with the country rock down stream  are conditions which   exert more or  less influence on the distar.c^ of the  .deposit from-its source in the rocks  in   place.    Very   fine   particles   of  gold   will   float,    particularly if in  ill iii scale; also such rock fragments  as contain fine particles of gold will  be moved   farther   from   the place  from which broken out from a lode  than   pieces   of"   rock   containing  coarse gold.    Gold in honeycombed  quart/,   or     oxidized ��� iron-be.iring  quartz is   very generally freed from  the quartz   before being moved far  from its original   place; as a matter  of fact, much  of   it   is ' completely  broken up, freeing the gold in place,  to   accumulate  and ��� form a pocket  right on top ofthe large'outcrop or  1t" anything, more likely to be  plentiful near the top of a deposit,  rather than at. the bedrock or bottom. The value ofthe bedrock deposit cannot be correctly estimated  fr.ini this'light gold of the top wash,  it is only safe to estimate from prospecting iif the entire depth. Generally a j-nidalion downward of the  size ofthe particles can be observed,  beginning at the lode source.  Coarse gold is very'gene-ally found  close to the original lode source,  very light gold at a considerable  distance from it.

The wedges in timbering up to  a working face should be driven toward the face, not from it.

The  soft  immediately  below  country   rocks,    by   wearing down  under erosion    more   rapidly .than  the relatively harder   rock, by limitation up and down stream, are evidenced by  successive  parallel cutting,    and,    in    the   comparatively  broad   level  stretches thus formed,  furnish   places   for   long-continued  deposit   of  gold-containing   rocks,  which   there   become    broken    up  and    deposit   their contents of gold  when    they   themselves   in smaller  fragments are pushed onward down  stream.    In   the   harder rocks, the  cutting is continuous   in practically  one line, so   that   no   places of accumulation of gold-containing rocks  are made, and    there   aie comparatively small accumulations.    In the  California   mountains   the streams  cut   through   successive   bauds  of  gold-containing rocks, so  that  distribution of deposits of placer gold  were formed, over  long-continuous  channel   distances,    as    compared  with  many   other   districts.    Normally, ,5 miles from the upper limit  or lode source to   the   lower   limit  beyond'which" there   is . gold, but  insufficient  in   quantity   to be payable, is aboiitthe limit;   Above the  lode source there is,   of course, nothing.    Below  the workable placer  there is  a  long   down-stream   distance in which there  i.s gold, widely distributed in; traces that are  apt  to be misleading.    These fine'colors  aud general -respects are due to the  widely distributed   fine gold that is  more or less floatable,   either  by itself or as fine particles in fragments'  of lode rocks.
