So Said Dr. Keller When Asked for  His Opinion of Atlin and Southern Yukon Districts.  Dr. I;. S. Keller, who has returned from a two months' visit to White-  horse, Atlin, Conrad and Caribou,  is greatly impressed with the bright^  ness of tlie outlook of the country  at SkagwaVs back door. He says  one of the greatest mineral producing countries in the world is being  developed in northern British Columbia and southern Yukon territory.  "The great placer fields of the  ''"'Atlin district,".' said Dr. Keller,  "will yield more gold this year than  iihey have produced for many years.  There are ��� not so many individual  miners at work, but the hydraulic  companies are ' doing splendidly.  The output of a few of them'will be  very large. "Atlin "will get better  each year tor years and years.  ���Then the development of the  Windy Arm country and the prospecting that has been done from  leanett on the west \o the Engineer  mining property o>n the east have  disclosed that there is a great quartz  belt lying in that country that will  soon be adding its millions to the  world's riches.  "The work that has been done on  the Whitehorse copper properties  this year has removed the last doubt  imoLn the minds of the most skeptical as to- the richness of that  section  "I never saw a country with a  brighter future assured than that  - just across on the Canadian side of  'the.mountains, that-.divide the coast  country frona the Yukon ' watershed.''"���Skagway Alaskan.  Answered.  "Will you allow me to ask you a  (question?" interrupted a man in the  audience.  '���Certainly, sir," said the orator.  "You have been giving us a lot  of figures about emigration,, increase  of wealth, the growth of trusts, aud  all that/' said the man. "-Let's see  what you know about figures yourself. How do you find the greatest  common divisor?' *  Slowly and deliberately the orator  took a drink of water. Then he  pointed his finger straight at the  cjjuestioner.

Seventy-Jive Foot Shaft.but-no Bed  Rock Yot���Staked Ledges oi'  Galena.and" Molybdenum.  Messrs. T. Hanna,,J. Cartmcl, C.  Gilmore and'C. P. Hickman,' wlio  since early spring- have been pushing work on their Volcanic " creek  placer ground,'suspended operations  at lhe beginning of the week on account-of lack of water-lo drive their  pump, and have relumed to,Discovery. Their shaft,., which is 3 ft. x 7  ft. inside of timbers, has been sunk  to a depth of 75 feel without sinking  bedrock. At a- depth of about 50  .feet some. four, feet of'fairly good pay  dirt was encountered; hut sinking  ���was.continued and the- bottom of  the, shaft is now in a stratum of blue  clay and'- boulders. Considerable  difficulty was' experienced from  water, but with the assistance-of a  largo- wator-whoel and ai -Cornish  pump this- obstacle was-contended  with.' Taking into consideration  tiie nature-of the ground-being prospected- and- the many obstacles and  break-downs met', and overcome, the  amount of work, done and depth  obtained speaks volumes for the  energy and .perseverance of these  sturdy prospectors*. Tlie men are  naturally a little disappointed at not  having struck bedrock but, nothing  daunted, and as their present pump  is- powerful enough-, to handle the  water lo a depth of 100 'feet, they  state-that they will renew operations  next spring and "find bedrock or  bust."' W-c are of-the. opinion tha'ti  the former will- be the- condition!  most likely to happen.  During the season- these men also  located and- staked- a number off  quartz claims on what is known as  Broken Hilt The ledge, which is  several feet in width and extends  throughout their stakings, contains  .a large vein of high grade' galena  which'will prove very valuable with  development: In the same locality  they have staked a vein which oii  the surface averages about four feet  in-width and carries a high percentage of molybdenum. This mineral,  which contains several- by-products  and is also used in the manufacturing of large-guns, is fairly rare, has  a steady demand for small quantities,  and. is at present worth from 20 to  ��5 cents per pound.'  ,'   If-you want bargains that are bargains, call on Stables & Lumsden.  oir  m ��� ruFHisnings,     ���   ���  Blankets, Boots and 'Shoes.  jgJgJP* The'wbol'e Slock mush be cleaied our regardless,  of cost before the and of the moi'thi.  n roigigm""'**'"' fMKj-jjt^aJiiaiii-i ���  STAHSII  ^WtJtf^ p  J.
