GENJiKAL  NEWS.  The W'hitehorse Star of the 12th  inst. said*.1 li. E. Winstanley, the  only survivor among seven victims  of the explosion and fire which  wrecked the steamer Columbian on  Sept. 25th,������. is still at the general  hospital at .this' place under the skillful treatment of J. P.-Cade aud the  careful nursing of the hospital corps.  At 11.30 today an artery in Win-  stanley's neck burst, and this may  tend to complicate; iiis chances for  recovery. The coroner's jury, called  to investigate the cause of the Columbian disaster, and which adjourned from the 2nd instant until yesterday, pending a change in the condition of the surviving victims, met  yesterday but again adjourned until  this afternoon, when it was believed  Mr. Winstanley, tlie only survivor  of the seven men injured at the time  the accident occurred, would be able  to,give his evidence.  Injunctions to Retrain.  ..  ,  A Sequel to N ten t-time Re-Staking-,'  When Stakes Were Planted on;  .Everything Except, Perhaps,,  the Moonlight.''  Injunctions .ware served this week1  on Mr. J. M. 'Rufiner and the two  companies 'Of which he is manager;  restraining them from entering in or  on the-"Daylight" .placer' claim,;  staked at night-time, by Mr. W. W._  Grime, acting for .a .certain W. J._  Taylor, IK. C., of Victoria. The1  Daylight was an attempted re-location of the Starlight, which was in  litigation last year with the Buckeye,' the history of which is well  known,iii the camp. But, instead  of re-staking* the 'Starlight, those  employed are said to have staked a  portion of the Starlight, a portion of  the -. Buckeye .and portions -of the  "D" and "Ufistenr"* 'leases, and in  doing so they [constructed another  new "geometsical ���iig.'i-i-e .of .the 17  dimension. , The funny part of the  whole business is" that the ground'  staked .as ithe Daylight -had been  worked out arid the gold recovered  therefrom previous to -the said nocturnal visit, aird-now'the Supreme  Court -enters and-grants .an '.injunction agf.1*"'st working'lhe ground.'  The old_^ tbv.erb that "the early bird  catches the worm'' is exemplified in  tlie above particulars.  /lining: News.  Board .of Trade Meeting.  A special meeting of the Atlin'  District Board of Trade was held in  the court room 011 tlie evening of  Thursday, week, when the following  members were present* James T.  Stables, in the chair, and Messrs.  Kggert, Fraser, "Bourne, Dowling,'  Nevile, Hathorn, McDonald, Grime,  Doelker and Fisher.  *  Mr. Stables, -who -had been presi-'  dent of the board'for over two years','  tendered his resignation, which was  accepted, and it was decided that'  the vice-president, Capt. Hathorn,  should occupy the chair until the  annual meeting next spring, and  until which time only quarterly'  meetings will be held on the 2nd  Thursdays iu January and April respectively.  On motion moved and carried, a  vote of thanks was tendered the re-'  tiring -president and the secretary  was instructed to write Mr. Stables  and convey the regrets':of .the board  at his resignation as a member of  the organization and at his intended  departure from the camp.  Mr. Stables replied feelingly and  expressed . his regrets that his intended move made il necessary for  him to sever his -connection with  the board. '  A Spokane despatch of the 1.7th  says': Reno Hutchison, secretary  ofthe Y. M. C. A., was shot and  killed 3'esterday by a highwayman.  He staggered into the lawn surrounding the residence of Postmaster  Hartson, where he expired. The  murderer escaped.  The P. C. P. Co.

H-elgreu and partners have  closed down-theiriayou'the ground  of the -N. M. Ltd., Spruce creek,  after a rather short, but very satisfactory run.  The N. C.*G. M. Co. made a partial clean-up-of their sluice boxes on  Wednesday and it is slated that the  returns were -equal to the expectations of the management  Messrs. H. .B. Warren and A. B.  Taylor have this week, been to the  south end of the lake inspecting the  Gold Bottom ground which Mr.  Warren recently bonded to aCali-  foniian-syndicate for local people.-.  Word has this week been received  that, the application of the Pine  Creek Power Co. Ltd. to have their  powers (as granted under their present charter) enlarged has met with  the approval of the'-executive council at Victoria. **>  ���O. Nelson, F'.'Walliins and AV. J.  Boudreau, who, throughout tjr'e season 'employed five men on a lay out  the .Juliet group on Spruce creek,  which ground is owned by Mr. Bon-  "dreau, closed down this week after  a successful season's operations.  'It is the intention of the "North  Columbia Gold Mining Co. and the  Pine .Creek Power Co. Ltd., J. M.  Ruffuer, manager, to operate their  Pine creek 'hydraulic plants until  the 15tli of November this year  provided -that the" frost does nat  compel them to shut down before  that date.  Messrs. I-I. Molynea'ux and A.  Bcatly, Boulder creek, closed down  operations the early part of the week  and report having had-most satisfactory returns for their seasons' work.  They left on Friday's boat for the  outside, Mr. Molyneaux going to  Victoria for a few months, while  Mr. Beatty will pay a visit to his oltl  home at Acton, Out. Both will return in the .early spring for"next  year's mining operations, from which  they expect even better returns than  those obtained this year.  We are informed that the Atlin.  Consolidated Mining Co., of wlwse  operations T. D. Harris is superintendent, will shutdown their shovel  on Tar Flats for the season on the  25th inst. and will then make their  final clean-up and proceed to 'house  their large plant and equipment for  the winter. The company will have  their crew at work again early next  spring and will resume operations  just as soon as conditions will permit. . Although it took most of this  season to install .and erect the plant,  and it was the r5tJi of August before  the first gravel was washed, the returns have been very satisfactory  and.prove beyond question that the  steam shovel and electric clump cat-  system is the best method as yet  adopted for working the particular  kind of ground which this company  have acquired, and of which they  have sufficient to keep their presettS  plant and a large number of iruin  employed Say several ...''jea.saiif'.

In commenting an the various remarks from sowe of its conterapor-.  aries throughout this great Dominion concerning the rival claims of  Labor that writes itself in capitals  and is looking out for a soft livelihood at someone else's expense, and  the" other kind of labor which is  needed to open up, this grand province of ours, the B. C Mining Ex��  change says: ,   '  MOur position is. what it has always   been.     For   the   man   who  , works, whether with. pick or   pen,  we have an admiration which,increases with his growing scarcity all  over Canadaj for the man who talks  about work and never  works: who  bellows  about  his  rights and neglects his. duties*; who raves   at  the  tyranny of capital,   but is. always  eager to trample, on everyone weaker   than   himself*; for this'kind of  animal we have no use at,-'all,  and  ��� have, no.sort of.b^tetiqnjiT telling  hina so.    We are in favor of having  British   Columbia  opened-  up   by.  white labor;- but,  if white labor is  too lazy or too. scarce���and,-, it, appears  to be both at present���then  the country has got to be opened up  by any other colored, kind of labor  that has sand enough to get in ant\  dig,   whether   its  comple-t^on   be  brown,   black,' yeUow,. salmon-pink  or pea-green.    And by white fcibo**  we   mean Eugfeh-^peakwg. white  labor.    There is no blacke*. shame  on Canada's record than the policy  which has populated sections. oJ our  ���jountry,.  as   big audi biggs* than  ���t-aany an Qlidi-Woiilid kiugdiwu,. with  Ijhe    disease-stricken    sers^fc&otic-  hordes of southern  Europe,- whUe  thousands of good men, English and  Scotch, Welsh and Irish.,,were starving in idleness in the mother-laud.  The nation that could swallow without blinking Clifford Sifton's naked  Doukhobers and, filthy, murderous  Galicians,. has. forfeited all right to  grate   about a pretended desije to  keep the Canadian race- puse   and  unspotted from the-defiling contami-  yation  of the less favorable peoples  ��f this sinful world."'  HOSPITAL BOARD..  The board, of trustees, of St. Andrew's hospital; held a special Meeting on Friday evening of List week,  when Mr. J. T. SbabL.es, who. had  been its chaitiman for some four or  five years- past, resigned as: a member of the board. We understand  *ahat Mr. Stables- was, asked to continue to act until such time as- he-  1-eaves the camp,, whew- his. successor  will be appointed.  Steps axe being taken, to-,increase  to&number of ttee.QH.lhs. boatd.by  Glancing over the amount of  road work, trails, bridges, etc., carried out by. the British Columbia  authorities during the season now  closing, one is struck by the satisfactory showing made. The Department of Lands and Works has  a far from easy time of it in satisfying the incessant demands-which go  iu each year from every section of  our rapidly-developing province; but  the particulars to hand indicate the  strenuous efforts which have this  season been made to do justice as  tar as possible to all the requirements.

Dated tlie 10th October, 1900.  FRANK H. MOBLEY,      '  OjU-A Discovery, A.tllu DUtrlctt U. C. Hi.  ATLIN;   B. C,   SATURDAY,    OCTOBER   20,   1906  The Business of Prospecting.  It is a pitiable truth that very few  men ever get rich prospecting. The  great majority of the noble followers  of the trail do little better than win a  grubstake; not a few of them die in  poverty. Yet prospecting, despite  its poor promise of reward, keeps an  army of men" at work. And upon  this army depends the success of the  mining industry. It is this army of  patient, dauntless men that stimulates, that keeps moving the mining  business of the world. The greatest  battles ever fought arc those iu  which this army of meii engage; yet  they are fighting them unknown to  the.world.    It is an army composed  ' of soldiers of honest toil, but of martyrs and pioneer's, marching through  the unsettled, west, fighting mountains and. making straight the way  for others to follow, unlocking the  treasure vaults of Nature to increase  the riches of the world. ������  While 011J3- 1 in 10 of the ledges  located become producers, it is the  prospector that finds that one. A  .region is never more thoroughly explored than when tramped over by  an army of prospectors.. This army  is composed of men who will not  turn back. There are no crags too  steep for them to climb,- no mountain range .too rugged to be scaled.-  Prospecting has, - in' late years,  been robbed of much ot the romance  that characterized lhe gold-hunting  ; art iii pioneer ' times. It has been  reduced to a more conservative business. . The prospector of today resembles the prospector of 50 years  ago only in that he is every hour expecting'to'stumble across a fortune,  ��� a veritable'glory-hole filled to the  brim with pure gold.  Though'' few' men get rich prospecting, there is no denying the fact  that this is a good business for the  man who follows it on business principle. The "mineral west," so'called, which-is really all of that territory, west of the New England states.  and whose eastern border line is each  year drawing nearer the Atlantic,  affords a splendid field for the real  prospector. The districts that were  tramped and scratched over half a  century ago still afford great opportunities.  Tracing,a ledge by "colors" is an  easy, matter. When the prospector  finds a favorable spot he halts and  strikes camp beside a stream.- Then  he chooses a course, and following  it, pans the dirt and gravel, washing  each pan carefully down and scanning the residue for colors of gold.  When he strikes good colors he pans  again, and if the colors grow brighter with each pan he smiles more  happily/for then he knows he is on  a trace, to follow which will lead  him to a treasure.  As a usual thing this simple meth-  ed of tracing leads only to placer  diggings, though the locating of  colors, when combined with float  and a general investigation of the  country rock and formation, is one  way of locating a ledge. This question of "country rock," "contact,"  "mother lode." "ribbon quartz,"  "sugar quartz," "diorite," "porphyry," and all the other terms aud  expressions known iu mining aud  prospecting parlance, will soon become as familiar to the follower of  the trail, even though he be a tenderfoot,  as is the first.pf the multi  plication tables. The close observer,  the earnest and'energetic follower of  the trail, will soon learn to read  from the open book of Nature, as  readily and easily as  from a printed  Page- ;  When a ledge is struck the prospector's first task is to ascertain its  value. An open cut is made upon  it to a depth of 6 or 8 feet, at which  depth the two walls of the vein are  likely to be well defined, unless the  country is badly broken up 011 the  surface. The miner picks off a quantity, of fine particles of rock from  across the face of the ledge and mortaring them down to a powder, pans  the dust or pulp. The amount of  colors left in the residue indicates  the amount of free gold carried in  the quartz. The ore may be rich,  however, aud still show no value in  colors, the metal being hidden in rebellious sulphides. To ascertain the:  ore values in cases of this kind, and'  where there is no assay office within,  a radius of many miles, the prospector becomes at once his own assayer.'  He pulverizes the quartz to a dust,  and adds to it one-third as much gun  powder ; as there is pulverized- ore.;  The whole is then mixed with water  and made into a think pulp or paste.  The mass is shaped into the form of  a cone- and laid - on a flat stone to  dry. When dry the point of the  cone is fired with a match, aud the  mass sputters and burns away until  naught is left but a small black and  charred ��� metallic button. A little  scraping with his jack knife, aud a  little polishing on his coat sleeve,  will prove the identity of the metal  in the button.���D. H. Stovall in  the'Miumg'.World. r.  .  .
