A I.ikcly Extension .of the Canadian Northern ~-��- A Frenchman's 'Scheme.  sin  < Mr. C. W. Sawers, of AtlitU-vvas  interviewed    by    the ��� Ne.vs -^Advertiser on   his "lecent   ariival "in  Vancouver, and what  purports  to  be .the   substance of the  infoi illation   he  conveyed ,was published  in the issue ot that paper of the 6lh  inst.   .Armed   with   a   pe'itiou >>r  couunssioii.    signed   by   "seveial  hundred" miners, to lay before the  local Government, or  the   Leg si 1-  ture���if necessary���certain. gne\ -  aiices,   Mr. Sawers, unfortunately,  must convey any thing  but  an encouraging  impression of this g-ie.il  mining camp.   .He, says that there  are over  one  thousand   leases extant, "luvohi'rg the  iiUiOiii'dugol  f.illy iooooo'acjies  of-grourd, and  th .t th; lines are clos-h drawn Le-  - tv\een     the      hydiauhc   ard .the  -hand" muiei*.,   aid a_very-strmig  filling exists  in  consequefice."1, If  '. Mr. Sd.vers-would stick to facts instead of fiction   he  would  do 'h-s  " cause"���whatever that .may be,   mare   g>od   than by romancing  in   the  manner he is  reported "to  have-done as stated.    He  must be  awjire, if he has at all investigated,  that there are   not  more than 166  leases now held, ai.d that these involve barely 8000  acres.    He  fin -  ther states  that   "alnust  without  exception, these   hydraulic   leases  have   been   unworked,   in  fact no  money has been  spent  ou them at  all."    Mr.   Sawers'   knowledge of  the camp is evidently very limited,  or   perhaps   his   observations  are  confined to lower  Spruce   and the  immediate v'.cinity of Third street,  Ailin, fo."   had   he visited McKce,  Upper Spruce, Pii e, Willow, Birch,  UiilL-r, Otte. and   Wright creeks  iie would hive   bnii'd   that the hydra alie np.-r itor-- it ive. collectively,  spoilt a sum r.\ceei.ini*. $9"30 oco in  m.i.'li.ner\.   ditches,   flumes,   etc.,  'and   were giving   employment    to  a very large number of men.  Mr.   Sawers   puts   much stress  upon the  unsatisfnctciy conditions  which, in his idea, exist on Spruce  creek by reason   of   the  "ticiotch-  nuntsof   hydraulic men  upon the  rights of indiv idual miners, and he  states that there is  100m   for 3000  men on Spruce " instead of 1000 or  thereabout as is actually the case,"  As a matter of record, theie is not  now a single  hydraul'c lease upon  5Uiy kno vn workable placer; round  upon that creek,   except,  peihaps,  that these gentlemen  should'aban  don their private  rights to suit the  views of Mr. C.
