A great amount of secrecy was
apparent as to the source of a shipment,of three .tons of sacked ore far
which .the Scotia was kept waiting
for over an hour on .Monday last.
Nobody -seemed to know where the
ore came from! fr.om whom, and
•where it was going.- Being an unusual occurrence this summer, enquiries were made, but without any
direct result, except that the Bank
of Commerce were the.sliippers.-and
their branch iu Vai-couver the consignees. However, niece .by jpiece,'
fragments .were found,, aud .we herewith submit thejist.-
It .has always .been .anticipated,,
.when lli£ iiydraulic companiesgot
down to work under .the many high'
benches, that, valuable quartz deposits would be uncovered., and
such is now the ca.-.e. On Bine
creek some extraordinary rich free-
milling rock was found "in place,'"
and the knowing .ones proceeded lo'
investigate; the result is thai pieces
of ore were broken off here ai:cl
there and assayed. These assays
are said to run into thousands of
dollars Jo the ton, s« the locators
lost no time in proceeding to follow
the ledge from the outcrops, with
the result that a regular blanket of
claims crosses the country from
near Discovery -on Pine, over
Spruce and on to McKee creek,;
oi-er thirty claims have so far been
recorded. As only lo those immediately interested is anything
kno\vn as to the character of tlae
rock, we can say nothing, but it is
I rumoured thai such a showing has
I never yet been made, even in Australia, and it is said to be a veritable gold reef in the fullest sense of
Ihe term. t. .
It is gratifying  to  learn that the
locators are   men of undoubted enterprise, and   that if the returns of
! the smelter are up  to anticipations,
they ; may put a large   number of
men lo work immediately and push
the development with a yitn hitlier-
touiikubwn   in   the  camp.     Ifex-
1 pectations are realized   the   fame of
; Atlin as   a   quartz   country, in this
. one proposition, will   be   without a
I peer in the miiiin'g World.
The Pine Creek  Power Co,
Limited   .
Receives Its charter — Valuabl*
Concession to the Offshoot of
a Popular Company.   -
Several weeks ago it was fcnowR
that the Sunrise Co. had -taktei;
steps to have .their waler rights s«
consolidated and amended! as lo enable them to deal wi:h that large
section-of Pine creek hitherto unworkable for want >of water, and
that by obtaining 'the desired co:i~
cession they would be .released from
the friction which 'has for Che last
two j-ears been caused by .other
'companies in the ■ neighborhood.
The charter applied for was passed
by the legislative -Council, and the
•consent<of .tlie Lseut.-Governor obtained on the 29th ulto. The ob-

Anticipating the early completion   of through   telegraphic  communication with outside points, tlie  Publishers   desire     to      announce  that   they   are   now   entering into  negotiations for a telegraphic service  for the Ati.in  Claim.    It   is   the  present calculation to issue a special  bulletin    every    Wednesday   afternoon   and   the   regular issue every  Saturday morning.    As such an arrangement will entail very considerable cost, it is especially desired that  every person intending to winter in  the camp will become a subscriber,  as upon   the  support of ihe .public  will depend the carrying out of our  present intentions.    In order to insure us iu   our endeavors, subscriptions will be  received  at this office  or at E. L.  Pillmau & Co.'s, Atlin,  . at   Taylor's   and   Stewart's   stores  in   Discovery, and  at J. A. Fraser  tSb Co.'s on Spruce creek..   It is , to  be hoped that the public will show  their  appreciation by entering their  names on   the   subscription  lists as  soon as   possible,  in   order that we  may see our way clear   to complete  the arrangements   we   are   negotiating aiid that the contemplated service may be immediately utilized.  Description of This Valuable  Group  On Taku Arm From the Pen of the  Consulting Engineer, , M. M.  Clere.  An  ominous  silence   seemed to  strike the people of Atlin last Tuesday afternoon,   en   the  hoisting of  flags at   half   mast, and  the words  were rather breathed  than   spoken,  "The   President  is  dead!"    Despatches    were     received     through  Skagway that   afternoon conveying  the sad intelligence   thai   President  -McKinley   had   succumbed   to   his  wounds at 2.45 p.m., on   Saturday,  14th inst, at   Millburn House, Buffalo, N. Y.    This   makes the third  martyred President in the history of  the United States :   Pres.   Lincoln.  April   15th,    1865,    I-'res.   Garfield,  vSept. 19th, 1881,  and   now   comes  President McKinley, on Sept. 14th,  1 go 1.    As  he lived, so he died, his  last   words   an   index  of  his rule  through life, ''Not our will, 0 God,  but Lhinc.���O tempore, O mores.  "Consistency,     thou     art    a  jewel."    That  sage remark should  apply alike to the Government and  lo  the  individual.    The   all   wise  Lient.-Gov. in Council was pleased,  under and by-virtue of the Statutes  of the Province of British Columbia,  to grant a certain charter and certificate of incorporation,   on   Aug.  29th, to   the    '������fine  Creek Power  Company " of Atlin,   B.C., which,,  .       .  from the moment, of   its  approval n,ns w the same direction as No. 3,  and signature by Ihe Lieut. .Cover- j has about   the   same  width and is  traced by |.he croppings some yoo  feet. ���' I.ittle work has been done ou  it, bin: some' assays niad�� last year  .gave $15 to lite ton. Besides these  ledges incnlionc:', numerous small  ones occur.though not yet studied."  M, Cu.vui;;.  We are indebted to M. Maurice  Clere, Consulting Engineer for the  Engineer Mining Co.; of Skagway,  for Ihe following description of the  promising properly of this company:  ' "The property is situated on the  east shore of Taku Arm. about S  miles south of Golden Gate and is  composed of, 11 mineral claims.  Many ledges are known in the property, the most important being:  " 1. 'The Main Ledge.' This  ledge's strike is about N. 2500 W.,  and its clip 5��N. It. is -traced  fully 900 feet in length,..with every  indication of going iurther, and has  an average width of 4 feet; The  lilling matter is ���quart-/, between  walls of slate The quartz in some  places curries antimonio-Milphidcs,  combines of silver. The slate, near  the contact, is impregnated with  sulphates, averaging $60 to the ton.  The quartz itself is low grade, and  assays of the cropping;seem to give  an average value of $4 to the torn  "2. 'Mill Test Ledge.' Near  the water edge of Ihe lake. Strike  about N. 2060 W. ��� The length' of  this ledge is as yet'unknown owing  to the difficulty of working in such,  close proximity to the lake. A  shaft has been sunk about twelve  feet. The average width is- 3 feet.  The quartz is mixed with a greenish matter in which the presence of  tellurides is easy to delect and  where free gold is to be seen scattered all through. The assays of  the Mill Test ledge have been' very  satisfactory. Small samples have  assayed from $100 up to $2c'oo to  the ton in gold and silver. A mill  run of 4 tons made in San Francisco gave $37 to the ton. This ledge  will be developed when the water is  low.  "3.   'Foundation   Ledge.''  This  lode is traced-some   600   feet iii a-  direction about N. 2000 W., with a  clip of   5��   toward    the   east." The  average width is   18   feet.     A   tunnel has been started from the water  edge to cut the lode which it struck  about 750 i'eet   below   the surface.  The quartz  is white,    mixed   with  small pieces of slate, and the ore is  low   grade,   free   milling,' with occasional   pay shoots.    Values seem  to be rather irregular,  and  a  thorough sampling has   been ordered to  ascertain if all the ore could be put-  through a mill   or   if  it   would be  more   profitable   to.wdrk   only the  richest: parts,    There  are conservatively 50,000'tons ot ore  in sight in  this ledge. .'.���>���''  "4.  ���Toronto Lead.'

OBSERVATIONS  What W. M. Brewer, M.E.,  Thinks of Atlin.  He Expresses His Opinion on What  He'Saw ��� Way Yet ' Bo tho  Peor of Prominent Camps in  the United States.    <<   -   ���   ���  Among the many visitors to the  district ,this-summer was Mr. W.  M. Brewer, VI.1C, British Columbia  representative of the Enc.inicivkino  and Minim; Journal. The fust  communication   lo   his Journal ap-  ��� pcarcd-.in tlie issue of Aug. 24II1,  aud deals mainly with ' his observations made on the trip from Victoria- to -Atlin. "In a subsequent  issue he promises to set forth his  views on this'district, which, when  the\' appear, ought to-make interesting reading. -' On his way out, a  few weeks ago, Mr. Bre,\yer was interviewed iu ' Skagway, and is reported lo have said : . ���'  ��� " The formation around Atlin is  a ��� maguesian' rock, usually found  very 111 uch altered, and would ' be  classified as a- serpentine. ' In the  valleys near the town immense beds  of white material, which at a'casual  glance, would be taken as kaolin,  but which Mr. Bromley, M.E., has  had analyzed and finds -Lo he magnesia, exist. These are due to the  decomposition or ��� degradation ol  the serpentine or other maguesian  rocks. At the' first'glance it appears that the creeks, which have  appeared to be gold bearing, all tra-j  versed .the same formation, unci it  ���has been stated that the gold-bearing area of Atlin is confined to  these magttesian -rocks, but a c!o-er  examination, and especially a trip  to Ihe head of Spruce creek, demon-  Hi rates that a very large proportion  of the formation on that creek is a  graphytic slate, .very, probably belonging to theTre-Cambrian period,  and possibly cleaved from the nicla-  morphism of Cambrian shales. ��� .  " Above the head of Spruce creek  ��� f was informed that a belt of lime-!  is tone occur led, and was shown a  ���specimen of crystalline limestone,  which was said to have been taken  from that .belt. Ill is my impression  that the slates belonging to the  :zo:.e   which Spruce creek crosscuts  Pine and McKee creeks and Willow  gulch, besides the quartz propositions mentioned. With the exception of Spruce, I find tlie geological  formation comprised the maguesian  rocks which, occur around Atlin as  well as dykes of a fine-grained  eruptive rock, most probably diabase. Hydraulic plants are being  operated on all of lliese creeks, and  the results of these operations will  nol be known ��� till - the end of ibc  seaso'i, when�� Ihe bedrock flumes  into, which the material is washed  are cleaned up; but a comparatively  few individual owners were working their claims, the greatest number beiilg ou Stevendyke gulch  and Spruce creek. I visited several of these, and saw some partial  clean-ups, which, according to the  rule of every other placer camp in  the world, showed good, bad and  indifferent results. I noticed one  feature in particular which was  that comparatively very little typical gold dust is found either iu the  sluice boxes or by panning.  '' I consider that the prospects of  the Atlin district, provided a cheap  fuel is furnish 2d, and the particular  formation I have mentioned ��� is  thoroughly exploited and demonstrated to carry bodies of gold-beai-  ing ore, either .free milling or refractory, are the peer of those of'  several of the prominent camps iii |  the United States.'"' "  Farewell to Rev. ]. Pringle..  On Tuesday evening last au impromptu gathering assembled at the  First Presbyterian Cliurch to bid  Mr. Pringle farewell and to wish  him godspeed on his journey northward. Mr. John Williams occupied  the chair, aud iu a brief and pithy  speech eulogized Mr. Pringle since  his incumbency lo the pastorate of  ���St: Anchew's church. He ex-]  pressed deep regret at being called'|  on lo wish hijn farewell. Miss  Hughes, Ethel Pillmau, -Messrs.  Lumsden aud Stables favored thee  company with "well chosen selections, Mr. Stables' being an original one, sung-to the tune and vvilh  the chorus of "'Will ye no''come  back again." Mr. J.
