The gentlemen acting as provincial  directors for  the  company,   which  Avill have a capital of $500,000, are  J. T. Cornforth and Jos.   Roos,  of  Denver; I. R. Hedges,   Vancouver;  Irwin Mahon,  Carlisle,   Pa.; Wm.  Hutchinson, M. 'P., and Taylor Mc-  Veity, Ottawa.    The company will  operate a stage wagon line in summer and a line of sleighs in winter.  Mr.   Cornforth is an old   hand  at  the stage coaching business and has  gone over the entire ground of the  projected  line,   and   believes   that  when  the stages are running  the  ���distance of 400 miles between Cariboo Crossing and   Dawson   can be  negotiated in from three and a half  to five days.    It is  not intended to  charge anything  but  the smallest  tolls'to vehicles using the road and  not belonging to the company, as it  will be easily seen that the business  of   the   organization   will   be   the  better the  greater  the  number  of  travelers who put up at the wayside inns.    The stage coaches will  be constructed in Concord,   N.

If we  read the resolutions arigli t the board  seems content with a once a week  service  ' quate.  between  Vancouver   and   Victoria  and  Skaguay  is -little   enough to  meet the requirements of the north.  1 The   arrival  of Canadian  mail  in  Atlin .during the .past summer has  been very unsatisfactory.   In strange  contrast mail from the United States  arrives two and three times a week.  There is really no, reason  why Canadian mail matter should not  be  delivered in Atlin at least twice a  week.     Furthermore letters rarely  arrive here  in   less  than  ten dtiys  from the  date  of their departure.  Five days is sufficient. - Postmaster-  General Mulock will lose much of  his reputation 'as   a   wise cabinet  minister if a radical change   is  hot  soon made in the northern mail service.    .

Entirely  The following petition, with a  large number of names attached  thereto, has been forwarded to the  LieutenantvCiOvenior:r  To His Honor, the Lieutenant-  Governor of Hritish  Columbia:  Your Honor���We,- the -'undersigned, residents of Atliu. desire to  call your Honor's attention, and  that'of your Government, % to the  need which exists ' for more generous provision for the care of the  1 sick. It is not necessary for us to  ' inform yourv Honor ' that a large  part of the population' of-this district are without means sufficient to  maintain them' Jiere, or to take  them to the coast. It is' from, this  needy .class that most of our sick  come." For inadequate food, scant  raiment and exposure, together  with the anxiety which accompany"  the life of the miner, -lead almost inevitably to a lowering of vitality  and to consequent disease. It -is  also ��� to be noted that most of the  men iu this ��� camp are nol of the  class accustomed to pioneering.  -Verv few of them indeed have ever i  to a point" below the White Horse  early ^next spring, then this tram-  road is practically dead* properly.  If not, then this tram becoming the  properly or falling under the control of any one transportation company we will he placed at their  mercy, and like the cable in  the Five Fingers be open to the sole  and only use of this one monopolistic corporation. The one thing  that this countiy must avoid is a  monopoly of any line of business.  We have had experiences at the  hands of people<and companies'who  controlled the situation completely,'  and paid dearly for* it, and now  every man* in' tl'iis territory and our  Yukon officials should watch with  a jealous eve-that this does not  happen again.���Yukon Sun.

Pine' City,'. Oct. ,2.��� Mining on  Pine "Creek, ""for this season, has  come to an t end. Last Saturday's  blow from'the north and consequent  ice in the boxes 'plainly 'told the  miners and others in this vicinity  that work under these "conditions  would not be profitable." ' The Caledonia group, I was led to believe,  would suspend work the incoming  week. The ' Willow - Creek Cooperative ditch has decreased the  water* limit, .with a view1 to also  closing down', the incoming week.  A  good  deal of drifting will be  year��� the last occasion on which  the Prince appeared on horseback  before the accident to>his knee. Tlie  main reason for the prince being appointed to the honorary command of  the '"'gay Goidons"*' was that he  had previously been ,h ought into  intimalp contact'', with the militia  batalion of the regiment on Deeside,  to which His Royal Highness is always accustomed to 'refer ,as "our  part -of Scotland".  .   '  1   1  The'Russian -Government"'has  i taken away from 25,000' shops in  (St Petersburg the right to sell-alcoholic' liquors, ' and. has replaced  these by 5,000 establishments --placed  under the control of the state,- and  located at equal distances apart.  These (establishment's" are directed  by young women.  BROWNLEE & LOWRY  J. II. Bro.vnlee, I'.  It. C. Lowry, A.  . S>., I). L S.  . I. C. t.

They" are therefore more susceptible to the diseases,  which the hardships. and, deprivations of their life bring with them.1  . Our "physicians have 'acted- most  nobly in their care of thet sick,.,for  they have in many cases given not  only their professional' services but  medicine _also without compensation. This,* we think, should not  be required or expected of them. It  appears to us to be. a very reasonable request that such a sum should  be granted for the support of each  indigent patient as would pay ordinary expenses, and in addition  something for professional services  and medicine. We would suggest  ���if it be not impertinence to 'do so  ���the appointment of a medical  officer, at a fixed salary, ,to care for  the sick, who are without.means.. -  -The need of a suitable building  for hospital purposes is also apparent. Many very serious cases,  including four of typhoid fever,  have been cared for this autumn in  mi ill-ventilated cabin and a tent,  14x16, pitched about 40 feet from  it. Such accommodation has made  the proper supervision and nursing  of patients very difficult and has  also endangered the health of the  nurses. A building -large enough  to accommodate a dozen patients,  iind with kitchen, bedroom and dispensary accommodation would cost  but little, and, a large part of the  cost of maintenance would doubtless be borne by the community.  We would respectfully ask your  Honor and your government to give  this statement and request your  earlv and earnest consideration.  R: A.

Now comes the report on the Joseph  Clossett that the sale of this property has actually taken place and  that English capitalists have paid  $44,000 for it.
