To the lid i tor of Tin; Claim:
Sir,"—Will  you  kiutlly  allow   me  spne?  in
your paper to give public expression to my
feelings as regards the treatment of. the lu-
borcrs_on the Willow creek  ditch.   Many of
them were in actual want when the association put the scheme on loot, but they gladly
hailed the prospect of work, being faithful!}
promised employment ou Willow creek when
the ditch was completed.   Many assurances
were given  to the workmen that none but
those employed on the ditch would get work
from the claim owners.   These  promises, so
faithfully   given    and   thankfully received,
were soon  forgotten, foi" one-half of those
working   on   Willow   creek   at tiie  present
time never did anything towards  the water
scheme, while some of them  were known to
boast   that   they   would   not  "speculate on
their labor."   The case  would not be finite
so serious if the  "blest  piiper credit" thut
the  laborer  received  for his services,  were
convertible into money, . Some of the store-
.;ecpi:rs,  it  is true, have u-jveetl' to furnish
'•grub" ut the rate of $:i.7ii for a $;\ coupon,
but this only gives the needy u sniiill start iu
the race with starvation. One or two philanthropic gentleman have condescended to purchase tlie coupons, hut they are so generous
iu their oli'ers that even  want can scarcely
induce the hungry to take ttdvuntnge of their
goodnature.   One gentleman  reveling in u
surname that has been worn  threadbare  by
tlie patron saint of Ireland 'actually' offered
a  hungry laborer'■ §3.25  for his coupons on
condition that he would reliiutuish all claim
und make  no  ell'ort to  redeem them.   Tlie
treatment we have received ut the  bauds of
the U. C. government, was bad enough, but
being ignored  by  the claim  owners  we  labored to befriend and-forced to trus
selves   lo   the   generosity   of
Usurers, is rather too-much
Yours respectfully,

judgment and are now takin'i steps toward
substantial investments. .Several iinportalit
hydraulic transactions huvii taken plum
within the past few days and many more of
ei|iuil importance are on the tapis, liable to
be consummated at, any moment." ,
.1. II. Brow nice  returned  on  Monday from
u surveying t rip to Alder aud   Moose,creeks
iu the interests of Montreal aud llririsb Col-
umbiu capitalists. His-oliii'iul report is highly   satisfactory   und   shows   both    ol    these
creeks lo be excellent   lor  hydraulic operation.   -'Moose creek, while ua excellent   hydraulic  proposition   is too deep for prolit-
uble sluicing und ut   present, not a claim   ou
the entire creek  is being worked.   On this
account   I   ilo   not   apprehend  .'any  trouble
whatever  iu  uti   immediate lease  being secured.    It is on these abandoned creeks that
hydraulic companies .stand the best show of
commencing early operations, for there arc
no small claim holders to interfere  with the
work. - Moose creek   prospects  well  for hydraulic mining and the bunks of gravel there
are greater than in any other portion of the
district, many being fully 2.")0 feet  in   height.
There is much more water in Moose  than in
Spruce, lully 2,501) inches, while the creek is
about twelve miles iu length.   A company ol
Mont'roul capitalists bus applied for the leu-,e
of Moose creek   and, upon -securing il will
commence  work  as soon  us possible iu the
spring.^ Several claims ure being worked on
Abler creek, but not  prolitably.   The  uver-
uge  runs about $11  psr day to trie mini, so
the owners are more than  wiliing to abandon the  slow   method   of  hand sluicing und
have their.claims worked  out,  by  hydraulic
force.'    There   is   siillieient  timber'at   tiie
mouth  of  both  Moose and Alder creeks for
limning purposes, while there is fall enough
to eac'a stream to guarantee a good head of
water.    Pine creek   will  make  an ideal hydraulic scheme, not  only on  account of its
richness, but the great  force of water that
can be secured there.   Surprise lake is nearly 11(10 feet  higher than  the  mouth ot  Pine,
and 300 feet above the level of the creek at
Pine city.   One company   is  already preparing to operate on Pine, just above the upper
lulls.   Charles Mcintosh has secured  u lease
ut that point in the  interests of the Uritish
America company."
Prominent among tlie hydraulic experts
here at present is H. M. Wallace, general
manager of the.United States and Dominion
Mining company . of Washing-Ion, T). C. Mr.
Wallace is very oiithiisiuslioovertho hydraulic possibilities of the Atlin district aud as a
'more substantial evidence of his faith in the
country, Mr. Wallace informed u Claim representative thut his company would lie actively operating here next season upon unite
an extensive scale. "T huve made a thorough
examination of the entirrj district," continued the American expert, "and have become so firmly convinced at to the richness
of the district that I have aireudj completed
several large purchases for my company.
We have secured outright u block of 28
claims on Spruce creek and during the re-
muhig week of my stay here I am in hopes ol
being able to close for as much more ground
on that rich stream. Spruce creek from
mouth to source is one of the grandest hydraulic propositions- I have ever seen. I estimate there are about 1,600 inches of water
iu Spruce, which will give fully enough
lorce to operate the big monitors necessary
to properly tear out those immense hunks ot
gravel. Our Spruce creek plant wc shall
probably have lauded on the ground this
fall so as to begin operations as soon as
possible in tlie spring. 1 have closed several
more deals of eciuul importance, and have
otli'crs on the string, which, however, I am
not ut liberty to disclose just ut,4 present. It
is sufficient to say that we ure satisfied with
the country and are investing our capital
hero." ...-
The United States .und-. Dominion Mining
company has some very extensive-interests,
not only in tlie United States, but scattered
throughout the northwest as well. They are
at present operating dredgers on the Frusior
river, iis well as quartz mines in the Koote-
nny district, Colorado,-Idaho, Montana and
California. They have secured 8J miles of
the Yukon river und ry miles of the lloota-
iiiuiua river for dredging purposes, and intend commencing- work iu the two latter localities next spring." On these rivers the
company will employ the Dennett dredger,
euch mucin tie costing $00,000, in uddition to
the cost, of transportation, which vvill, bo

The iirin, as will be  seen by advertisement elsewhere, are adding a wholesale department to their business.  This step was in contemplation tor some  considerable time and the visit to Ntinaimo,  of the ubovs numed gentleman, wus for the  purpose of completing urrungemeiits and at  the same time uccompuny the goods through  to Atlin. This shipment comprised 20 tons  und from a survey of the premises, Discovery und Second streets, it is seen thut no detail has been overlooked. The stock, from  the line champagne down to the testive  playing card bus been included in the order.  Tn tho shipment wus included the lirst  draught beer brought into the country,  and this lost 110 time in finding u purchaser,  for Mr. GbO. Hayes,1 ol the Nugget Hotel,  Pine, secured the entire lot.  The wholesale department is an addition  to their present house, and it must uot be  understood that the retail trade will be done  away with.  ft is sute to predict thut Messrs.
