To   the   leniency  of Mr. Eggert is   it   due   that   an  example was not made  ofthe boys  in this case, but   they  will   not be  liable to get off so ^easy in another  case.  , A \ e-ry ..ad death occurred at the  Atlin Hospital on Tuesday morning", when Otto Gesch, of No. 15  abo\ e diseovery on'Spruce creek,  breathed his last.

In the Hospital he te-  mair.ed in a semi-unsconctous condition until he died.  Otto Gesch was a German by  biith and, came here from Dyea,  where, we understand, he oowduct-  a butcher business.

The Sanitation of Atlin.  -  ���   ��� The thanks   of the   community  are due to Judge Woods in particu-  ar, also to Dr.   Young   and   J. II.  Brownlee, (as a committee from the  Conncil ofthe Hoard of Trade;, for  bringing to the notice  of the  Pro-  ���' vincial Health Department, bycoiii-  ^ ' munication   through -the   Government Agent and-thence to the Provincial Secretary" at Victoria, a'full  statement of "cause and effect"   iu  relatioii to the future  health of Atlin, and recommending   preventive*  ,-measures being  taken  re   closets,  ���garbage, manure etc.,.  so as to assure the continued good  healtlr of  the communityL  '* ���' As the same conditions apply  to  "   Discovery, we, hope  these  recom-  ' mendations will be  taken  heed  ol  there also.',. They should be.  Meanwhile   it   is   the   bouudeu  duty of each Householder to at onct  -fill up his particular closet pit.witl  unslaked lime,  quicklime,'  or  tlie  white cat th', magnesium hydrate, at  ��� the back of the town, then with  dry eaith; and provide boxes "or  gavalnized pails for the excrement,  ���thereby preventing further percolation through the .porous, gravel.'  into   the lake.    There is abundant  ��� evidence that some of the filth oi  the town has already reached th<  lake, and at points where' we get  our water supply.  Householders should not wait to  be,"toId to", or   to   be" forced ,to  " clean   up   their   yards  before ".th*.  ���snow. gets, too  deep; .large- boxes.  ��� should-be provided for garbage and  ��� barrels  for   slops.    Manure' pile-  should be removed, and   at -once.  In this way Atlin will fool the  Health Officers,, for iu other, nulling towns of British Columbia they  have almost always . played' -their  part after the damage was done,  and at great expense to the community. 'Ill-stance the cases of  Sandou and Fernie, besides other  places too numersus to mention.  If Atliu people will take heed,  and also go a little further out into  the lake or away from the front of  the town for their water supply,  there is little doubt but that Atliu  will hold the reputatJon it has  gained for itself, that, of being the  healthiest mining town of its size  on the continent.  ASSESSMENT WORK.  Quartz  Development - Proves  .Increasing Values.  Some Low Grade 0r�� but of Immense Volume' ��� The Ruby  Crock Ore Looks Good.  The reports which' from time  to-time reach this office regarding  the result of assessment and deve-  lopment work upon many ' of the  quartz.properties of the district are  ofthe most encouraging kind. We  have' yet to bear of the property  which has failed to show material  improvement by its development.  On the property of- dipt. Haw-**  thorn and associates jihe following  work is reported: - '      ,    .  The Star- Group of mineral  claims, covering an urea of nearly.  ���300 .acres,, is situated lie.tweei:  Birch and Boulder^ creeks,, in the  mining  district of Atlin, B.C.  Three ledges an this property  have bien opened up to the following extent;  No;-1 Leclge.is xoo feet wide. * A  tunnel to tap the. ledge"', at 50 feet  level,' has been driven 35 feet, and  a further 30 -feet, will, strike the  ledge. Mining work to date  amounts to 1140 cubic feet.  ,N,o. 2,'.Ledge is 39 feet wide.  Surface cuttings expose the ledge.  Mining���-work, amounts to 2000  jtibic feet.  . No. 3- Ledge is 8 feet -wide.  An open drive,.- 2"5"feet long, and  5 teet wide, cuts through the ledge  .it 12- .foot depth.. , Mining- work  amounts to 10501 cubic feet.  Nos. 1 and 2. ledges are large  bodies of-low grade free milling ore,  .\*ith a - tendency to increase in  value with depth.  No. 3 Ledge is a gold aud silver  iiropositiou. The -country rock is  composed of talcose slates, miner-  ilised slates, arzillites and clay-  dates.  On the property recently located  by Bert .Lucas and associates or.  the divide between Boulder and  [���tuby creeks, the owners have been  doing some stripping, on the ore  body. They are sending out 3  juantity, of ore to different points  .'or the purpose of having assa3's  made. According to one of the  owners, "*they could put the Tread-  well mine into one corner of their  Property.'"' Let us hope that as to  results this "may eventually prove  so upon development.  A certain amount of stir.has been  created locally and extensions have  been staked right across from Ruby  to Boulder.  :Atlin,  Nugget and Grape, Rings  And-All Kinds of "Jewellery Manufactured; on the Premises.  0S0T   Why send out,when you can get goods as cheap here?

THAT APPOINTMENT.  Office of   The  New Deputy  Minister  Is Not Appreciated by tha Const  Press ��� Appointment Given  to the Wrong Man.  The .Vancouver   World  has'the  '' fallowing to say about the  position  "of Deputy Minister   of   Alines,  recently created   by   the   Provincial  Government :���    '* Condemnatibn  cannot be too stung for  the  Government which   will create an'iin-  r necessary office cany ing a  fat' salary ��� as  in  the  ca.se   of  deputy  minister of mines���in order to* pro-'  vide for a   favorite   friend   and   a  party worker.,  There   can  be  no  .  two opinions as to the relative  fit-  4*. T  ness of Mr. Tolmie and of Mr. W.  Fleet Robertson to perform the duties of deputy, in the mines depart-  . msnt.   'And yet to meet the wishes  of a ministry that  looks' upon  the  -civil service as "a private  bonus es-  tablishm::nt, the practical  and "ex-  -.perienced head of,the  department  "' m.ist give way to H12 party heeler*  The D-.in\mtiir'government'appears to be intioducitig the 'spoils  sy-itjm with'a vengetncp. "r  "'Since it is* so -apparent~that -the  de*>ire at present is to utilize death-  bed opportunity in order to provide,  for friends, there sho.ild be no com-  punction, at the', firstoccasioir, -for  setting the appointments aside."  ��� Captain Richardson, who has so  long held a position and practically  that of Deputy Ministei. knows  more about the Mines Department,  than any minister who has occupied  the Portfolioof Mines, and if any  appointment was necessary, which  we doubt, to Captain Richardson  should that appointment have been  given?-  .  A Test for Gold in  Quartz.  A si in pie .test for the presence of  gold is to grind the ore sample to  a powder, put it into a clip, pour  over it tincture of iodine. Cover  cup and allow the mixture to stand.  After three hours pour out -the  solution on a sheet of blotting  piper, or better, through filter  pa.>er. If gold is present it will be  indicated by a purple ring around  the pulp as the iodine evaporate.--.  A Prospector's Life.  A prospector's life possesses-thc  clu.rm of always hoping to  strike it big, and even should he  not succeed he can enjoy himself  as no city denizen can. The mountains in summer are delightful, aud  when one tires of prospecting he  may try his hand at hunting or  fishing. There is plenty of game  to supply one with^trcsh meat all  the  time.    The     largei      Mi cams  abound in"fish, and the pure mountain air and water Keep tlie prospector iii the best of health.  There is only one risk to run, and  that is of i'ccidenl, so it is safer for  two prospectois to go together, as  a man may fall oil" some steep ledge  and break a limb while climbing  atound iu seaich- of croppings.-  Where two can agiee foi a whole  season, the piospector's life is the  happiest one in existence.
