A Bright Future Predicted for our  Camp, Based  on   Actual. Ob-  ,  servation of a. Practical, Cha-  ���  racter..     ,.-.,,  The result of my careful investigation in regard to present and  prospective conditions for Allin  may be briefly stated as follows:"'  ��� I find an exceptional' combination of free-milling ere' with placer  deposits, which offer to the prospector, as well as to the capitalist,  exceptionally attractive conditions.  I question whether any other mining camp in California orSouth  Africa, or elsewhere,..not even-ex-  cepting the. Klondike can compare  with Atlin, 011 the grounds stated  above,-namely the combination of  quartz and placer.   .  The common idea .that   Atliii   is  only  adapted  to���% large . companies  with ainpj�� capital ^ is._ entirely, .erroneous, ifor,the  reason-that-there  are"  numbers  of-creeks  yet  to  be  prospected as  placer    propositions  and in nearly all 'Cases' the quartz  prospects vvill be found closely  allied to the placer. ���  fact  almost' a precise   reproduction    of  California; .it is both a  great placer  country  and a great quartz region.  .   The   ledges  which  constitute  a  successful  quartz  region  such   as  Atlin are well  defined and  possess  high values.'    Timber  for  fuel  is  ample and . close  at   hand,   water  power superb, .and to the prospector  there are in Atlin two almost certain  chances of success,   uamel)-,   good  earnings from placer, together with  quartz  close  at  hand  and    easil}-  wprked.    It would be. wise'to  suggest  that those   coming to   Atliii  study  carefully, the  treatment   of  ores;  that is  not  to   forsake    the  quartz properties too readily, but to  exercise great care in   finding but  character of the pre  aud  its  treatment; where in many cases a cyanide process would be required, in a  great many others the ore would be  found  to    be free:milling  and ' in  some cases refractory:  Tlie geographical' position of  Atlin is eminently in its favor, and  a'fact above all 'others remains to  be noted that during'the season of  1902 Atlin has suffered from -a  shortage of desirable labor. The  past hi-story of the camp has led  many to believe that it is only a  rich man's proposition; this is not  true, ancLin support of this statement I may say that there are today a great many men of compara ���  lively small means who are quietly  acquiring wealth iu the camp.  " "One of'tlie difficulties in the past  has-been the unfortunate Alien law.  which drove out a gieat many desirable and experienced mineis, who  h:id come over from California' and  other' mining regions to seek their  'fortunes'in'this, comiliy; i,ut 'now  confidence is being rapidly restored,  there'being no "obstacles whatever  iu thei'r^vay. '  'A'1.1? great reduction in 'the rates  of traiispprtation and  the .facilities  of  getting    in    and 'out,or   the  country have infused new   life into  this   remarkable .region;   there   is  now no further excuse   for  anyone  who so desires to visit' this  Northern country and take advantage.of  its great  natural   resources.     The   "  climate  is  if anything superior to  any other part of the continent and  there is an'abundance of goo'd agricultural " ground"' together with, an  unlimited supply offisl}, game and  wild fruits. ':  This coifnfry 'requires the formation of a concern ssimi'lnfro the British South African   Chartered  Co.  in  order 'to  fn'llyi:'deinp'nstrate  its  wonderful   resources   and v���ch   an  organisation' would   lie " eminently  Popular.  , There are dozens of good  properties merely  waiting 'the  as^  stance.,, of . such ��� .a--fdd-eIopmeut   "  company, and-the time is now   ripe  for some enterprising- capitalists  to' *'���  consider the formation  of a' large   '  and-competent  development' company, which'Ifeel sure would prov  a boon to the camp arid a sourceW  remuneration to the investors.     " '���  The water conditions of the entire district are exceptionally favorable, the winters are by  no' means  so severe as is generally  imagined,  hfe and property are as safe  as in  any otheY part of the .continent and  take it'all in all there is'no  reason  why Atlin should not' take-a   prominent place in   the -great  mining  camps of the world." ;   '��� ,  T desire to add that the White  Pass and Yukon Company will be  pleased to furnish any information  concerning Atlin and its possibilities to-any- and all who apply to  them.  Societe Miniere Visited by  French Capitalist. Highly  Pleased With Outlook.  - Mr. P. R. Oster o'f Paris, representing Kuropean capital, was a  visitor here last week. He is specially interested in Boulder Creek,  and-states thai" he found that the  vSociele Miniere having finished all  preliminary work have now reached the stage of production, a large  area of bedrock is exposed, and the  returns so far'are most satisfactory.  Mr. Oster finds this country  very interesting, and firing believes  that Atlin will make a name lor Itself the world over. fni  ATLIN,   H. ,C\.  SAT  SEPTEMBER 6,   190:  The Atlin Claim.

We hai-e in the last few weeks  been visited by some very enthusiastic believers-in the future of  Atlin. This camp, which, from .its  inception has had, so to speak, a  black eye, is now attracting much  attention abroad and it now behoves  us to prove conclusively that we  have not stepped beyond the mark  when we assert that our placers are  as rich as those of Dawson..  This years output will we believe  exceed our most sanguine expectations, and that of next year, con-  , sideriug" the present development,  will undoubtedly astonish the world.  One operator here stated this week  that he   would   require a horse   to  bring in. his clean-up, and we have  every reason to believe the statement.  Today Atliii is one. of the best  placer camps in British Columbia,  as it is, there is not an idle man  here,, and poverty is not known.  Our only trouble this season was  actually a shortage of labor, and it  is evident that al least double the  number of men could have made  good wages. '   .  The.population of Atlin is bound  to increase in view of the permanent character.of its rich placer deposits, to say- nothing of quartz  ��� which is now becoming a prominent feature in our camp. This  will mean the development of farming and grazing lands, ��� and even  stock raising'; already several applications have been granted and  more are being made for agricultural laud; the many sheltered valleys aud open stretches of country  here are well adapted to the production of vegetables, grain aud  feed. Farming and cattle men  should look into this. matter and  secure the lands now available for  occupation.  OUR PLACER MINES.  Away Beyond Expectations.  Gold Coming in Daily. .  Individual Miners Prove Atlin to be  A  Poor   Man's Camp Some  Good Pokes and Nuggets.  There is now no possible doubt  respecting the richness of our placers, the welcome , intelligence  reaches ik daily of-good clear.-ups  and the Bank is kept busy receiving dust. Where operations'are  being actively , pushed ou Pine,  Spruce, Boulder,McKee,Cold Run,  Blue Canyon, Birch and Otter wonderful results are being obtained,  The individual miners on Pine,  Spruce, Boulder and Gold Run  have a veritable bonanza,' and" we  hear daily of big nuggets being-  found and good clean-ups made.  We cite a few items 6f interest  especially brought to our notice  from the creeks.  Certificates of Improvements.

He considers the  tax unfair, it being sufficient to prohibit the treatment of all low grade  ores. Col. Prior is working in the  right'direction and has in view the  putting of the mining industry on a  more solid basis.  Carnegie   Offers   $25,000   to  Dawson for a Free Library.  If the local Government of Daw-  sou pledges itself to spend $2500  yearly for the' maintenance of a  iree library Andrew Carnegie has  offered the City a $25,000 donation.  Public sentiment favors the proposition, and the Dawson officials  will probably accept the generous  pfler. .
