Summer operations here  proved extremely profitable to the  great majority of those engaged in  working out their creek and bench  claims and attention has again centered in the high, runs under the  hills, which promise equally rich  returns to their owners from winter  drifting.  . Our representative has just returned from a flying visit to this  section of the.district and reports  some twenty-five tunnels well under way and every one cheerful  over the winter's prospects.  ��� The north hill side from S8 to  iot, below, which has already been  drifted in for several seasons, will  be 'still further prospected.

Below  the  turn   at No. no, the  more recent  concentration   of   the  " old run," which   seems   to have  Continued on Page 4.  With the near approach of winter a lid the steady migration of  miners Iroin the camp, it is a natural question to ask, what has been,  the outcome for the work performed during the working season  of 1901? It is to be remembered  that, owing to the long'continued  cold weather at the early part of  the season, active work .* was delayed fully a month,' then much  ofthe first work done, was washed  out by   the  high water in July.  Owing to the difficulty of obtaining absolute   returns   from   the   individual miners of what   they have  won, the   reckoning-  of the   year's  output of placer gold becomes more  or less a matter of guess work, but  our calculations,   backed     by   the  opinions   of  those  in a position to  keep account of the mining output",  it is .estimate^ that   not less  than  $6oo,ooo"'would bTwitiiin the" mafic,  at a conservative   figure.    It is unfortunate that we  cannot give  the  amounts   won   from   the  different  creeks,    but   an   inference may be  drawn from  Boulder creek, which,  for the   season���a  very   short one,  too���has   yielded   fully   $150,000.  Deducting this from $600,000, gives  a balance* of $450,000 lo lie divided  among   Pine,   Willow,   Spruce and  McKee creeks.   As   far   as we can  ascertain,    individual    miners   paid  royalty   to the  Government upon,"  approximately,   12,120 ounces, distributed as follows:  ;**t*r!SttS���-������ *  Creeks.  1901,  1900  Pine and Willow  5330  4918  Spruce  230S  1699  Boulder  2640  1916  McKee  1013  !/33  Wright  2S3  1068  Graham  103  19-  Otter  143  T 22  Gold Run   .  3i  Birch  270  12,120  15  Total  11,490  We cannot, of  course,  guarante  the accuracy ol" llie figures for this  year, because the official reports  have not yet been made public, but  there will not be a discrepancy of  more than a few ounces.  It may be explained that the  difference in the official returns of  the. royalty paid ,011 McKee creek ^  last year and this year, is chief! y  owing to the fact that the Atlin  Mining Company owns all the good  ground on the creek with one or  two exceptions, and tbe company,  being practically in an initiatory  stage, had not reached the good  ground.  j i  ;J.|  i  ���;fl  ��� ������5  J  |V J- ATLIN, B.C..

SiJ*.:���1 beg lo lake the earliest  opportunity of expressing the  thanks of the Government for your  donation lo the Mineral Museum of  a large number of mineral specimens from the Atlin country, recently exhibited at the Victoria  Exhibition.  This contribution will go a long-  way towards completing the collection of specimens from that vicinity  at present in tlie Museum, aud, I  trust, will materially assist in attracting the attention of capital to  your district��� I have lhe honour  to be,  Sir, etc.,  D. M. Ehkkts,  Acting Minister of Mines.  Last   week a   rumour   reached  Atlin thai  t}?e  C.   P. N; Co.'s ihw  steamer,   "Hating,"   had yuiu:   mi  the rocks near Vancouver.    Owing  to  the   telegraphic  communication  being cut off,    confirmation of the  report could  not   be   had,    and 110  mention was made in our last issue.  Unfortunately,   the   report  was too  true, and the last mail brought full  details of the accident.    In a dense  fog, but iu the  calmest of seas,   on  Saturday afternoon, 12th inst.,   the  steamer went ashore at Tucker bay,  a small  inlet in   the   island-dotted  northern  section   of   lhe   Gulf   of  Georgia.    There was no commotion  of any kind   after   the  ship struck,  and the   passengers   were all safely  landed on the shore of Easquetli island,  at   the   entrance   lo   Sabine  strait.    From   information just received from Atlinites who left Skagway 0:1   the   Plating,   they describe  their treatment  by the Captain and  officers as "a most perfect picnic,"  and   everything   that could be done  for the   comfort   of the passengers  was done.    They reached Vancouver the following afternoon.    From  latest accounts it was expected thai  . the   steamer would be  got off the  rocks   and   immediately   repaired.  The highest  praise has been given  the officers   of the  ship,   and it is  stated that thc  accident, under the  circumstances,      was   unavoidable,  Wc shall be glad   lo  hear   that the  steamer will   resume her run again  before the close ofthe season.  This mail brings us also the report of a mishap to the Cottage  City, owned by the P. C. S. S. Co.,  which was being towed south by  the Dirigo, and so reported at Skagway on the'17th on the arrival of  the Humboldt.  The First .Alaskan  Railroad  ���   a Paying Concern.  raLUlio  ining  Facts  and   Figures  From   the Directors' Report of tho   W. P.  '& Y. Ry.  The White Pass & Yukon Railroad is so closely identified iu its  operations with the Atlin district  that the following- extract from the  the report of the Directors may not  be amiss. The operating icporl  covers the year ending December  31st, 1900: The. company's railroad line included 4 1 miles���Skagway to Bennett���for live months,  January ist to May 31st; 77.75  miles for 2 1-2 months, June ist lo  August 15th; 112.25 miles���Skagway to White Horse���August ^i6lh  lo December 31st; the average for  the year being about 75 miles. The  earnings of the road were, from  passengers, $250,861; freight, $1,-  773,750; miscellaneous, $59,720;  total, $2,084,331, or $27,653- per  mile. The working expenses were  $743,945 ��"r 35*7 per cent of the  gioss earnings. As might be expected, maintenance of way charges  were high, amounting to $316,747,  or 15,7 per cent ofthe gross earnings; over 30 per cent of this total  ���$97,561���was for keeping the  line clear of snow and ice. In addition lo the working expenses  there was p:n"d for general, legal  and r.ii'-col!.7.1 icon;; charges'^.10..���,,-��� (-j;  and !'>r inteR'Sl ou local muilga^es  $102,773. -*v'je total ' payments  were thus $1,143,311, leaving a net  balance of $1,035,020.  Tlie traffic statement -in the report, to 'which we have added the  average rates, is as follows:  Passengers carried, 21,029, average  haul, 69.09 miles, at an average  rate of 17,27 cents per mile. 33,-  473 tons of freight were carried oyer  an average oi" 80.61 miles, and at  an average cost ot 65.74 cents per  mile.  The average load hauled per  loaded car was 12.25 tons. The  equipment consisted of 15 locomotives, 11 passenger cars, 211 freight  cars,' 5 snow-plows, 1 derrick and  1 steam shovel; 2 locomotives, 4  passenger cars and 54 freight cars  were under construction.  The report says, "The prospects  of business appear excellent, but it  is not possible to make an accurate  comparison between the earnings of  this year and those of last, as until  August 15th last year only part of  the line was open. From January  ist until July 7.4th of this year thc  gross earnings have been $1,069,-  765, being an increase of $310,532  over the gross earnings for the  same period of last year."  vlining-,  Pumping & Sluicing Machinery,  Centrifugal Sand, Gravel  &  Dredging Pumps.
