The steamboat trouble on Atlin Lake between the opposing boats, appears to be at  an end. The Ruth now lauds passengers,  freight ami mail at the. Pearl street dock.  This is due in a great measure to disagrc-3- i  incut between the Commodore, Capt. lr\iug, |  and the captain of the Scotia, running on'  Atlin  Lake. ��� j  For considerable time it   bus been  known [  that strained  relations existed between the  two, but noborlj suspected that it would terminate in the way it has.  The crucial stage, hoveveiv came last  Saturday when Captain John Irving and  Captain Armstrong came across the lake  w it'u the Gleaner's passeii^er.s on the Until  and landed at the P"iirl street dock. The  Scotia w us on 'leek -it tn- o1 ner side, but she  followed the Ruth in <-r uus.enuerless.  The appearance of ('apt. John ou any other  boat than the one iu w hich he is interested  in portends trouble w is!.i:i, a-.-.d this was fully confirmed when the boat was to leave on  her back trip.

Word   conies   from, Washington   that  the  United States government  have decieed  to  take up the claims of the  American  miners  who were deprived  of the  right  to  record  claims under licenses which had been granted  and which were paid for.   Acting ou tho assumption  that the contract   was 'made   iu  good  faith  11 great-many outfitted at considerable expense only to  Hud   the agreement   repudiated  by   the  British Columbia  legislature.    Tn so  far as   these   men  have  suffered we hope they will receive full compensation.   The .legislature had  a right  to  pass an alien exclusion law if they .saw fit. but  they had no   right  to  repudiate a contract  lionestl} made, especially when il entailed a  considerable outlay on  the parr of one ot  the parties to the  contract.   The  whole bill  is narrow and selfish and sadly out  of pluee  ou the statute books of a province so rich iu  natural resources.    \Are want Americans and  all cither classes of intelligent foreigners to  come to our  province und  if our luws are  wise and institutions pure history proves 1 lie  foreigner will take upon himself the citizen--  ship of the  country  in which ho is located.  Wo hope tliis  unwise  measure will prove a  lesson not only to Canadians but Americans.  The United Statos have in force an alien law  which Canadians nre made to feel at times  with  severity.   This has  been advanced by  some in extenuation of our own law, and tip-  pears to be about the  only justification  for  it.   This Js >too  narrow  a  spirit  tor a  big  country.   The tw o countries,have got to live  together as  neighbors and the freest communication should exist.   Let. us follow the  United States in" her good laws not iu her  bad ones.  THE EARTH TREMBLED.  The'Shock" Distinctly, Felt in Atlin,  }Pine and Skagway.'  A CbAl.M man was standinn at tho corner  of Poarl and First last Sunday noon picking  his teeth and congratulating himself that  his unpaid board bill had not,asyet,brought  any stormy protest from his landlady. Just  then two of Atlin's best known citizens happened along. ''Have sumthin," said ouo'of  thorn. Ifearful of oll'eiuling a good advertiser we reluctantly said "Yes!" The neighboring Russell quickly supplied "sumthin"  warranted to temporarily relieve a permanent thirst. This duty complied with the  trio returned to the al.ovj-mentioiied corner. "I toll you," said the other citizen,  "this will yet lis a great camp. Look tit the  amount,of gold t hey a're taking out of the  creeks to-day. Then again we will have hy-  dr nilic companies in here next year.. And  I'll bet you a ?H) bill the iiuartz  proposition  goes th ."   The earth trembled !    Was this  fancied or real. Had stern duty caused us  to swallow-something that did its work so  quickly. To remark upon it mi-lit can so  derision. Suddenly from every door people  rushed out and held their hands to the  ground.' Thank goodness! II was an earthquake. The reputation of Lee Hillings and,  tlio Claim was saved. The shock occurred  at live minutes- pa.st I o'clock according to  our sun dial.  Pine, notto be boliiud Atlin, also took a  shake. .Rev. Air. Stephenson, returned from  Skawuy, informs us that the telegraph poles  nodded to him and assumes that it was the  same shock we felt here.     ' '   ��� "  I  >  P   00. = =  PRODUCE  CO.

"Competition nmoug the- boats running  from the lakes to Duw.son has made the ser.  ice so satisfactory aud so much better than  would be expected in thatcountry as tocuuse  general remark on the part of the travelers',, said late traffic manager Gray of the  Yukon & "White Pass II. JR. to a P.-I. report er  Aug. 18th. "The day of bacon, beans and dried  primes for meals on the boats is gone, and  instead-you find steaks, fish, canned goods,  fruit, aud everything else usually found  on lirst-class steamboats. Everything is re-  inurkablv clean on all the boats, and the employes are uniformly courteous and elficient.  and a flue lot of fellows. The only things expensive on these boats are liquors; beer costs  SI a quntt bottle, and a quart ot Canadian  rye whisky brings SS.  , "It will not be long until the trip down the  yukori to Dawson will be one of the most  sought after in the United States. I do not  believe there is a trip in the world that can  equal it for its beauty' and comfort. The  scenery is so magnificent as to be beyond description. The travel is already almost more  then the boats can tuke cure of."  If it, is a good thing for steamboats would  it not be a good thing iu the case of the little  short line that does much as it pleases iu  handling freight, especially now, when Atlin freight is being sacrificed to make way  for "guaranteed" Daw.son merchandise. You  bet!  $500 AND A BELL  Tl e eluim jumping habit seems to have  again reached this district und other districts  Mi.rroutiding. There has recently been heard  complaint that notices have been posted und  stakes driven on iion-jumpable claims. This  habit should not be toleratad. for it is not  O.nl.v dishonest, but dangerous to the well-  being of the community. Persons who desire mining claims must outfit themselves  and go in search of tlieni or buv them in  good faith. Anyminiii claim may be jumped  when the time set by law for the performance of the necessary assessment work shall  have lapsed, and stakes must be kept out of  thu ground and notices kept down until they  may legally be posted. The parson who  jumps a claim is a robber as much as he who  jumps a town lot or illegally possesses liim-  Heif oT any kind of property of another.  When a prospector takes any intending purchaser to see his claim and finds that some  othor person lias posted a location notice  thereon his chances of sale are lessened, for  no investor cares to buy a law suit.���Juneau  Truth.  .Donated to the Atliri Fire Brigade  ���The Ball a Success.  On account of the inclement weather the  regular weekly meeting of the volunteer fire  brigade was postponed from Monday until  Tuesday night. As usual there was a small  attendance, though several matters of importance were on the slate. Chief (Lillie occupied the chair and Treasurer Anderson  recorded the minutes.  Tlio ball committee reported that the bail  given under their direction bad been a success both socially and financially. After all  expenses were paid a balance would remain  of $oG.50.-  A vote of thanks was tendered^the Arctic  Brotherhood for the use of their hall and  Air. Reynolds for music supplied.  Mr. Anderson announced that lie had been  notified that 'the provincial government  would contribute S5II0 towards the maintenance of the brigade.  E.

The miners will have  to prove that their property was of value  and also that the British Columbia act aud  its ad nui's-ration was the cause of their  l.oss.

To the Editor of tlie Claim:  Sir���In regard to a letter from "Litigant,"  iu your last issue, in which he criticizes the  action of the Atlin chief magistrate, it seems  rather comic to suy the least, that  he, almost  if not the only government  official in the  Atlin district in whom the  miners have any  confidence to adjust their wrongs or settle  their disputes, should have been picked out  for such  petty   disparagement.     There are  some of us that feel vary jubilant that the  B. C. government should have made such a  flagrant  mistake  in   sending  us  such    an  honorable gentleman as our magistrate has  proven himself to be.   We all regret, the going awn} of Judge Irving, but our magistrate has unmistakably shown  that he has  great confidence in.his own judgment, the  courage to see that his decisions are obeyed,  and that he will not allow the legal vampires  to absorb every cent we have to decide some  puerile dispute.   I appreciate the possibility  that one of the legal small fry may have had  a bad half hour with  his honor, but -'Litigant" is very ignorant of the mining class if  he thinks they rio not know  the difference  between a "real color" and fools gold.   Let  J us hopa the dust, will soon fly, and the law of  (the "survival of the fittest" will  prevent the  j "revival of the   old   regime,"   and  that no  longer   will   the bonds of  uncertainty  and  maladministration shackle the limbs of our  mining conrnunity.

The Former Loses His Property In  '   Skaguay Because He Is an Alien.  On the Hth ofp last montli .rohn H.'Patton,  a resilient oi Skaguay, and at one  tinio' in Atlin, took possession ot the lot and  premises on the corner of Fourth and State  streets, Skaguay, which property was improved'and occupied by Mr. J. St.'Clair  Blackctt, at present iu business iu Atlin at  tho corner of first and Traiuor. Lt appear*  that the only ground lor Air. J'nttou's action was Mr. Blackett's nationality, lie being  11 Cauudiitn. As UKcnt lor the latter in Sku-  guay. Air. Phil AbraniH, one of tho most  highly respected und successful business  mono!'the latter place, contested Patten's  ��� right to pofcSBiiioiiri-Tho law was invoked.

Jennings, attorney for Patton, uppuulod to tho prejudice ol  the jury���It- R- .Mitchell, J. li.

But it was a foregone conclusion that the  jury would find for the jumper, and all the  eflorts of tho opposing counsel were unavailing. Judge Sehlbrede shirked responsibility  by exercising his right to let the jury decide on both the law and the evidence, and  the jury knew no more about law���even  when it was read to them���than a porcupine,  knows about Greek. v  .'  "It auLpears~to oe a deliberate and coldblooded attempt 011 the part of an organized ^ gang to deprive Mr. Blackett oi  his property because he is u Canadian.   -    .  "In his speech to the jury Judge Day characterized the whole proceeding as the vmo��t  dastardly outrage perpetrated iu Skaguay  since the reign ot the Soapy Smith gang."  Mr. Blackett has instructed his counsel to  appeal the case, when it is to be hoped some  measure of equity w ill be dealt out.  cessfully work them, and must sooner or  later Hud this out aud make way for capital.

A  FREIGHT BLOCKADE.  With  Companies  Unable ' to   Cope  the   Demand.      - -,  Arthur Copulanrl, of the II. L. Ac K. N. Co.,  spent a luw dny.-i iu the city during the past  week. He wasaccompanied by Chief Hugiueer  Stockl'nld, who secured the survircr. of Cap-  tniu Richards, the latter gentian having disposed of his miiiiniig interests here. Captain Richards will tako uli'ir'jfn ol the Olive  .May, w h!ch will continue on this run until  tho end ol thu season.     ' .  SpiMihiugol transportation inattersat Bennett Mr. Oopelnud said the companies were  pretty badl} tied up. Word was sent Irom  White llorsoto shut oil' for the present sending freight there. The tram is capable of  handling 7.1 Ions a day but thu companies  have been sending 1,000. This caused a'bloek-  ude at Bennett and Ska^wii}. Added to this  'the water on the river is getting vory low.  The Canadian Bovjlopuiont company will  probably be stuck with a larjc amount of  (might this bill.  "The case of Blackett vs. Patten, trespass,"  s.iyj. the Skaguay Budget of Sept. 7th, was  decided last evening by a jury, which  brought in a vardiet of not guilty. The jury  received no instructions, whatever, except  tlie manner of the form in which the verdict  should be rendered, and'four jurors were  left to construe a law and solve u legal problem thut would require considerable  thought on the part of a trained mind to  decide. The decision in no wise settles the  question of title, as it is understood that Mr.  Blackett has a deed in regular form to the  right of the lot, aud ou appeal, notice ot  which has been given, the case will no doubt  assume a different phase. ,  "Without assuming to construe the law,  the Budget deprecates any action of technicality, or, other means, which deprives  either an American or alien" of rights that  have been recognized heretofore by citizens  of Skaguay. The precedent established  thereby is a bad one and may be productive  of dis igreeable results, though it is hoped  none will urise from the present case. Opinion is widely different as to the merits ot  the decision, the element ot alien hatred entering largely into that fuvorable to it.  Many of our best citizens are outspoken in  disapproval of it, however."

Welsh and C. Wright located discover}- on  Wright Creek last year, went out to the'  coast on his way to Arizona the middle of  the week. Before leaving he disposed of a  quarter interest iu discovery on this creek  mid also seven claims below, beginning at  9 and running clow n to 14 with a couple of  fractions, to Messrs. Mason & Campion, Pine  City, for a good figure. One reason w hy JI.'.  Bluukeuship~is leaving so early is sickness  and the other because he hud taken out all  the money he wanted with which he proposes to develop some good properties in tlie  south. Seventeen thousand dollars is what  the discoverer is taking out with him, and  after the consummation of the sule he offered to bet the above-named gentlemen  that they would take out $20,000 out of  the claims next yeur, provided, of course,  the ground was worked in a systematic manner. If this sum is not taken out ho is willing to make good the shortuge, und all over  this sum taken out must likewise go to him.  "Wright creek is the richest in the district," said Mr. Blunkenship. '"By this I  mean that more gold will be taken out for  the capital invested. There is loss deadw ork  on this creek than any creek he has hcen.  The benches, without doubt, are richer than  the creeks. Out of one bench on discovery  he took ��6,000, and at present 10 men are  working benches on a 50 per cent, lay clo^e  to this ground. They are all satisfied witli  the result.  "Wright creek, iu my opinion, will make a  good hydraulic enterprise.
