IvL .Baniion, who with Henry  Ruffuer has been operating a.small  hydraulic plant on the south .bench,  of Pine opposite Discov.ery with  very satisfactory results fins-season,,  has lefi lo spend .the winter .on' the  outside.  The Atlin Consolidated Mining  Co. made .their third clean-up .at  Tar Flals on.Saturday-last ancl it is  reported on good .authority that  gold to the .value, of $16,000 was.  secured. The company's shovel,  which is now- well up the fourth  cut, is working most satisfactorily,  and operations will .be continued  until the .frost .compete -them to shut  down.  .Ed. frlelgr-on, who-cUiring the last  five weeks has been working a lay  on lhe ground of the Northern  Mines Ltd., Spruce *creek, has already made 1 three clean-ups which  gav.e returns of 42 oz., S5 oz. and 45  oz. of gold respectively, amounting  in.all.to,$2 ,700. Mr. Helgren 'has  11 men at work, three of whom are  employed ground sluicing the rim  rock and eight are at work in the  pit shovelling into skips which arc  conveyed lo the sluice by a steam  hoist. If possible the lay will be  worked all-winter.  Caught by a Premature ExplosiOE.  About noon on Monday Mr. C.  Gairns, .who was employed by the  Pine Creek Power Co. in running  and fireing powder drifts at their  No. 2 pit, had a narrow escape from  being blown to pieces by the explosion of a heavy sliot which went off  before he got out of the drift. As  it was, die received injuries which1  will confine him lo his bed for some  time. He sustained a compound  fracture (involving .the knee joint)  of the left leg, lost-the little finger  from his left hand, and his left side  ancl left arm are covered with wounds'  ancl bruises caused by the flying  gravel. 'Dr. Young was immediately called and had the injured man  brought lo hospital where, with the  best of-lreatmeiil and attention, he  is resting easily.aud making fair advancement toward recovery.  L. C. Cowper Succumbed to Injures.  The sad' word was received in,At-'  lin shortly after upon on Thursday  that Purser L. C. Cowper, who was  seriously burned ��� by the explosion  and fire which destroyed the Yukon,  river steamer Columbian ou Sept.  25th, had succumbed to his injuries  at noon on that day at the Whftc-  horsc "hospital. But slight hopes  had been entertained of his recovery  as tlie unfortunate man's body was  terribly.burned, During the summer of 1904 Mr. Cowper was employed on the' steamer Gleaner on  the Takii-Carcross run and he.resided in Atliu the' .e.arly months of  f9��5 previous to his .departure to  duty on the Yukon.,  WRIGHT CREEK PLACER  Satisfactory-Results at Last Obtained by Four Men Who -Have  Mined There Four Seasons.  .Success attended this season's  operations on Wright creek' by ���  Messrs. Kershaw, Hodges, Davis  and Gierke, and they have to a  certain extent been icwarded for  the aggressive manner iu which  lliey have carried on prospecting  operations on that creek during the  past four seasons. In 1903, '04 and  '05 they prospected ,some leases  held .by local people and the go hi  obtained scarcely paid I heir grub  bill. In the latter part of the season  of 1905 these men commenced operations -on three creek-claims���Nos.  5, 6 and .7 below discovery���which  they own and obtained some 40 odd  ounces from 45 square yards of bedrock. This season operations were  commenced,in April and it was lhc  middle -of July before "dene!" work  was completed and sluicing started.  The dead work consisted of the  construction of a small reservoir  dam* three-quarters of a mile ��� above  the workings, a pressure ditch 700  feel long, a by-wash ditch over 600  feel .long, ancl the ground sluicing  of a trench Soo feet long and -froni  Wo .to 16 feet in depth wherein it.  place Ihcir flume.. By lhc construction of a 20-inch Soo foot flume,a  good grade ancl ample dump room  were-secured. Pipeiug was carried  on with a No. 2, three-inch monitor  and the pressure obtained ranged  from 50 lo 100 feet. After August  1st it was necessary to shut off the  water every night so as lo conserve  sufficient for the next day's run.  Sluicing was carried on for 11 weeks  and in that time the gravel, averaging 16 feel iu depth, was moved  from a space 250 feet loug by ,20  feel wide���in all 3,000 cubic yards  of gravel. This gave average returns of $1.35 per cubic yard aiid  the total value of gold obtained was  a little over $4,000.  .It is the intention of the owners  lo next spring double the conserving  capacity of their dam ancl also to  greatly increase the pressure of their  pipeing head and, as there will be  but little dead work to do, they  have good reasons lo expect that by  the end of next season they will  have al least trebled the output of  this, their as yet niost salisfactor-y  'seasons' operations.

As the leading mining province in  lhe Dominion, any facts relating to  the  mineral  production- of Canada  must be of interest to the people of  British  Columbia.    A brief resume  of the report issued by the Geological Survey of the minesall production  of'Canada for   the j'ear 1905 will,  therefore,' not  be without interest.  Erora the repoit it appears that the  total value of all the* rainerals named  in   Canada for {the- past yca-j was  ��� $68,594,707.    This total is the largest in the history of the-comitey and  is a  satisfactory pnoof thaft saining  in common with our othev gj-eat industries is progressing.   3n 190-5 the  value of the nainerals was- $��6,339,-  158, the highest value attained until  surpassed by that of'lasi yeas.   From  1901   there was a grasJaall define  until   1904,   when fchc- ouiput was  only $60,073,879.    Last! year"s production   shows* fcl&erefoje,, a   very,  substantial advance-  of wes 14 per  cent.,, a satisfactary proof of lite development of our mineral resources.  Up to 1901 there had be��Hi a continuous increase from the* yean 1886,  when the- value was $10*22-5^253.  This had grown lo $20,648,694 in  5895,   and  to $6ifc6ii8h26&in 1900.  These figures prove- that no. baanch  of industry can show more satisfactory signs ol progress.    More- than  this, the growth is likely to continue  Hi an even greater ratic    From all  tihe mining; districts come- Deports of  development, o�� new mineral bodies  being   discovered,   oa of  iuaprove-  ijients made in tbe- manner of treatment of the ores* whereby economies  are effected,, so that while- fche^e- is a  greater margin ��f profit on thu-gnade  of   the   ores that have previously  been worked* it is now possible- to.  wine    profitably   those    of   lower  grades.-���News.-Advertiser.  of which every number was well le-  ccived, was then rendered:   Voluntary,   piano,,.

C,   SATURDAY,    OCTOBER   13,    1906  FAREWELL  TO   ATLIN.  Farewell  to  Atliu,   farewell to the  North,  Its   sorry   I  am   for to bid you  adieu,  For here midst your mountains  all  covered with snow  , I   have   found many friends that  are faithful and true.  I came with the rush to the  north-  laud of gold  With hopes that were bright, of a  future all fair,  But the treasure I sought it has not  come to light  And I go empty handed, yet why  should I carev  There are things in this life that are  better than gold,  Tho" we cannot all see it that way;  Of Atlin's fresh air I have had  my  ., full share  And been blessed with good health  every day.  I have oft walked ' the shore  of its  great inland sea  And gazed 011.its mountains sub-  blime,  And it carried me back to the  land  of my youth  And the joys of the days O' Lang  Syne.  Its   woods  and  its  mountains,   its  streams and its braes  Take  me back to the land of my  birth,  And I love Atlin more for  its  sea  and its shore  Than  for  all   the gold under its  earth.  I often look back to the days on tbe  trail  And  think  of the hardships endured  By the men of all climes, where e'r  the sun shines,  As by the word Gold they were  lured.  But gold is not all, for gold will not  last'    ���;���  Tho' you have a big pile at  the  start,  But  frierdship and sympathy, love  and esteem  Can  ne'er be   erased   from   the  heart.  And, because I have found some of  those better gifis  Among  Atlin's  fair women and  men,  Is why I am sorry to bid you adieu  And say farewell to Atliu again.  Atlin, Oct. 8th, '06.  The above poem, written by Mr.  J. T. Stables, who intends leaving  Atlin during the present month,  was given as a reading by that  gentleman at Monday evening's  concert and elicited much merited  applause.  Otter Creek a Producer.  Pert   Paragraphs.  There are no promises without  precepts.  People who, take no risks secure  no reforms.  Don't kick about the weather. It  can't help being weather.  Don't try to patch up a quarrel.  It is better to break it up.  Many a man thinks he is orthodox  when his mind is only atrophied.  A real kindly feeling never has to  wait long for a chance to get  busy.  He that labors is tempted by one  devil, he that is idle by a thousand.  The woman whodoesn't think she  is good looking is dead willing to  be convinced.  Some men who have that tired  feeling wouldn't thank the doctors  for breaking it up.  If money making is a disease lots  of men would like to know where  they can get bitten by the germ.  Any one who has eaten Chicago  potted ham for some time ought to  be tough enough now tb digest a  brass bedstead.or a keg of nails.  "Satisfactory results have been  attained 011 Otter creek this season,"  said Mr. Alfred Carmichael, who  came to town a few days ago with a  heavy poke of the yellow metal,  being a clean-up by the Otter Creek  Development Co., J. E. Moran,  manager. Continuing, the speaker  said: "Operations on the benches  of the upper creek have disclosed a  large deposit of high grade gravel,  which assures good returns for a  number of years.  "Two pits were opened' up this  season and some one thousand five  hundred square yards of bedrock  cleaned."  When askedjabout the water supply, he said that with the exception  of some 40 days in the spring the  natural flow of the creek is. inadequate for ordinary hydraulic operations, but with the development of  a reservoir system, conditions for  which were good on Otter creek,  the water question will be materially  improved. A natural reservoir site  was located near, one of the three  feeders of Otter creek this summer,  the utilization of which made it  possible to continue mining tb the  present date, and a shut-down will  not take place until the frost makes  it impossible to continue pipeing.
