There are no data to hand  on which to form a correct estimate  of the output,but that it will exceed  last year's there is no reason to  doubt. Creek miners, on the whole,  have done much better, and it is  safe to'put tlie  season's  output   at  ,   considerably   over a million dollars.  , Work lias, been   plentiful   al .good  rates���$5   a  day���aud   eveiy   man  , has had the. option of working a  claim for what there is in it or accepting wages. Camps are few and  far-between regarding .which such  a statement can be made.  Quite a number of creek claims  are "about worked, out, a;-.d the  benches, from now on, will receive  their proper share of attention. On  Spruce creek alone there arc benches  which 'will give profitable employment to hundreds  of men,   winter  , and   summer," for   many   years   to  come.    In   fact, the working out of '���  the  creeks  is  only  a   preliminary  matter,   as   it   were.    There  is   no  - element of stability in Ihem as there  is in ' other" branches of mining,  their'producing existence being necessarily a matter of a k\\ short  years only.  The old ��� river channels with  which the district must be seamed,  have not hitherto received the practical attention they merit. Their  turn uaturallv conies after the easi-  President.

Nowhere, perhaps, in this  large' constituency' should there be  a louder cry for a labor candidate  than in our'mining, lumbering aud  fishing camps, where brawn and  brain (especially the former) alone  can contend with the stupendous  difficulties that are hidden away in  forest, mines and sea. If this country is anything, it is a mining country, yet not one single effort is  made by either the Ottawa or Provincial governments to in any way  enlighten or educate the people on  the formation .or mineralogy of the  country by establishing a school of  mines, whereby the average prospector would be abie to roughly  tell what he had found without  being put to the useless expense of  a professional assayer.

Dated this ltd tlay of Sept. 1901).  REYNOLDS V. SINCLAIR.  This case came up before the Stipendiary Magistrate last Saturday  and involved a poiutof considerable  public interest, namely the inviolability of caches.  The    plaintiff   whipsawed  some  lumber near Surprise Lake last season,   and   cached,    as   he   claims,  about 1300 feet near the  mouth  of  Wright   creek.    Returning .in   the  spring he found the lumber missing-  and shortly   afterwards found some  of it i,: the possession  ��f defendant,  who  did   not deny having'taken it,  giving' as a' plea that he considered  it an abandoned cache,   aud offered  to   pay  for    iooo-  feet  .which    he  claimed was the   total   amount,   at  mill   cost,    which    was   $30.     Mr.  Reynolds   refused    the.   offer    aud  brought action, claiming  the   price  paid   for   whipsawn lumber at that  period.      The   case  resolved   itself{  into one of larceny,   however lion-!  orable  the  intention   of the defen-1  dant, and  the  court  adjourned   to  give  the disputants an opportunity  to settle it outside, which was done.  NOTrCli is hereby jriven that the Hotel  business at Pine heretofore carried on by ns  under the hrm name ol Letherdale <�� Hnrioi,  is mutually dissolved from this date.

There has been some talk of,a  gold strike this week on Silver  Salmon, ' in the Teslin district.  Three men were reported to have  brought in about $1,500 last Saturday frctrn the rew .diggings. As  the new camp is somewhat over a  hundred miles from here and winter  is close at hand, there is not likely  to be any rush at present.  Mrs. Durie has taken oyer the  management of the Vancouver restaurant and all giving her a call  will be sure to call again. As a  cook she takes the bun.  The, Arctic Brotherhood Hall on  Second street will be sold by the  sherifF,>at to o'clock on Monday to  satisfy a judgment obtained in the  Supreme Court by the Atlin Lake  Lumber Co. against Jennings and  Noyes, the absentee owners.  Mr.' Eric Halverson's artificial  loot has at last arrived and been  fitted on by Dr. Lewis. It is a fine  piece of mechanism and with a little practice, Eric will get around in  great form.

J., Broder, who lost nearly his all  in the late fire, , has concluded to  seek fresh scenes and pastures new.  He left on Tuesday's boat. The  fire relief committee granted him a  donation of $150, which will enable him to to return to his wife  and children in Washington.  Mr. Durie is building a new  store next door to tlie Kirkland  Hotel, his .present one of canvas  having to come down in accordance with the fire regulations.  The Pioneer Bakery is having  an addition made to tho kitchen to  meet the ever-growing trade.  Brown & Sinclair are building a  large number of scows on speculation. The \V. V & Y.

The Mike King Company will  establish a camp of 15 men on their  limber limit at Taku this winter.  George Eindlay returned from  Taku on Wednesday where he has  been very busy for the last two  months. During that time he has  rel uilt the steamer Lorelei, also a  round h >use foi the Taku Railway.  He left again on Friday for Ben  ueit lo caulk ��cows for the Mike  King Co. at $u per day. Mr.  Eindlay says carpenters are iu de-  niiind at Beir.'ell for scow-building  and that $8 a day,is now the cur-  .rent rate of wages for capable men.  .All   the   sawmills,   aud   private  -parties   besides,   are building scows  \vith feverish energy.    They find   a  rc-idy and profitable sale at Bennett  and White Horse from- whence  thev go dow. the Yukon never to  return. After ore trip there they  are sold for the Inn ber there is in  them. The amountof money brought  into Atlin hy ihe building and sale  of scows this summer must be very  considerable and tlie trade as yet is  only in its infancy.  The White"Bass and Yukon Railway Co. sre calling: for :oo men  aud 20 pilots to man, scows .from  White"Horse to Dawson.  Captain Morrison's new steamer,  the Blair Athol, made her first experimental trip on Thursday. She  only' used a pressure of 50 lbs. in-  slead'of the 120 she is entitled to  use and answered all requirements  handily. The captain .reports her  good for fully to knots and says  that there will be no scareilv. of  work for her so long as the lake remains  open.    Her   first charter  is  for  a run down to the copper mines  <  this evening.  Mr. Wollaston and family are  moving shortly into more commodious premises  on Discovery street.  The kissing bug has struck town  sure enough. Several of our citizens have been going round lately  with lips a full-blooded Ethiopian  might,well envy. The victims so  far have been men, which is a good  thing for the ladies, but shows.,the  bug to be.an animal of low and depraved taste and possessed of but  little discernment. If we were a  kissing bug we would do better,  but then we ain't.  In McFeely's hardware store on  First -street can be seen a very ingeniously put together locomotive  engine and goods train. The whole  thing is composed of common articles for sale in the store, and the  result achieved, considering the  material employed, is quite striking. Archie Browulee is the designer and constructor and deserves  great credit for his ingenuity.  Captain Thompson, the arbitrator for Mr. Johnson in the arbitration case of Johnson versus the .Atlin and Willow Creek Gold Mining  Co., left for Pine on Thursday to  attend the arbitration. ; Messrs.

We understand that the outgoing mail on Tuesday per the .Scotia  was by some unaccountable oversight not delivered to '.he Gleaner  at Taku.
