To the Editor of The Atijn Claim :  Dear Sir,���Having some knowledge of the facts surrounding the  "Sunflower Hill'Claim" on Spruce  creek, owned formerly by Mrs. P.  G. Callaghan and now owned by  one Deisler, on which Mr. Prescott  & Co. have a lay, I would like- to  point out what is going on.  I believe, as all of us here should,  that the rights of everyone should  be protected, and while Mrs.'Callaghan has not been, successful in  her law suits. I feel it incumbent on  myself to point out that just-prior  to the last trial, I think that I am  not mistaken iu saying, the evening  before, the "Sunflower Hill Claim"  was ' 'jumped'' by one R. A. Thomas,  and I believe the grounds foi so doing are of the flimsiest description.  As is well known-, the-"Spruce  Creek Power Co., Ltd.," have been  claiming this ground as being part  of the "Vernon Lease," but owing  to the efforts of myself and others,  with the assistance of the member  for the district, Dr. H. E. Young,  the Minister of Mines has ordered  the front line of this lease to be re-  surveyed, so as to eliminate the  "Sunflower" and other claims.  From observation ou the ground,  I am satisfied that Mr. Thomas is  not the real owner of the new staking; the name now' given to the  claim is "The Speculator," and I  dont think that the public will have  to.speculate much as to who is "the  man behind the gun."  However, this claim has been a  good and valid one ever since 1900  and is as well known in the Gold  Commissioner's office as any property in the district, and while Mrs.  Callaghan may or may not be popular on the creek, I take it that it  will be an outrage if her title to the  ground was molested simply because  someone desires to have vengeance.  Yours truly,  E. M. N. Woods.

It  tarnishes  very slowly   and   is   not  easily attacked by most acids or by. alkalies.  The  present small silver coinage  of   Canada,   especially   the   5-cent  pieces,   is   inconvenient' and easily  lost.    In the place of   these   small  silver coins, it is purposed to substitute a larger coin of cobalt approximating   in   size   the  nickel 5-cent  pieces of the United States, while a  smaller coin will replace the present  bronze cent:   Owing to its hardness,  malleability  and   lack   of  tarnish,  cobalt   is   an  ideal  metal for these  coins of low value.    It will furnish  an   unique   coinage aud will assist  greatly in absorbing the surplus  of  cobalt now being mined.   The issue  of these  coins would secure a considerable profit to  the  government,  aud their introduction would fittingly mark  the establishment of  the  new Canadian mint at Ottawa.���Ottawa  correspondent to The Mining  World.

'��old Commissioner Fraser Visited  Bainy Hollow���Group of Copper  Claims Bonded for.Big Figure.  Oold Coiumissioner. J. A. Fraser  ireturiied on Tuesday sifter a two  weeks' absence 611 an official visit to  the "'Rainy Hollow-1" camp, which  is shunted on the' 'Kkiheena river iu|  tthe north west'corner of Atlin district,, and of British Columbia.  Mr. Fraser reports   that   in   -the  "���'Rainy J follow'1 section alone   upwards   of one hundred claims have  Jacen staked 011 ledges and   deposits  >oif   self-fluxing   copper -one,   wliich j  aflso carries good values in gold, and  wSnich, from surface indications and  tthe limited development so far  per-;  dbnnod,   give  promise ofieventirtallyj  becoming one of the 9aTges*t, .

There .have also been ledges  ���of galena,  molybdenum  and  other  ���precious L metals   cMsesvered ��rii the  same vicinity which, together' with  good   timber in fair abundance and  magnificent water  power,   seem   to  ���    assure the essentials necessary For .a  permanent  and  prosperous mining  ���community.    The i��res run high iu  .   values and, as stated  by a Montana  expert on the ground, are selF-flux-  tug���a  very <desirafefle -quality any-  ���where   and   particularly where the,  matter  of transportation is an important factor..  The 'district, though rather ���diffi-  ���cult of access under "existing :condi-  ttions, presents a -very "feasible route  for a railway with easy grades and  capable of being cheaply constructed, while the Klafoeena pass, which  is right in the midst of the be3t  looking properties -so far'developed,  seems to be considerably .the lowest  *n<3. most easily surmosintable by a  ���railway of all the passes .through  the coast range sin British Columbia  territory, and it would also be the]  tmost*direct route int�� the Alseckl  country just beyond.    :  ' j  At present the means-of access to  tthe new mining camp are by canoe  for 30 to 40 miles and .thence by foot  or  horse over a trail 'that might be  considerably improved.    These deposits  lie  about 50 miles from tide  water in ah air line, but   about >6o  miles   by  the existing  .trails.     A  ^igood wagon  toad is a crying need  of the district.  The prospectors who have exposed the existenceof these deposits  and have brought them to their present stage of development have done  so in tbe face of great difficulties,  hardship and expense, but their  judgment aud pluck in sticking to  it are apparently about to be re-,  warded as the probabilities are that  active development will lie carried  ���on during this coming winter by the  .company which has secured a bond  on considerable of the property.  There is a very heavy snowfall  there as elsewhere along the coast  .range but, notwithstanding this the  ���climate is excellent, the scenery  grand and the prospects in general  jnost encouraging.
