"The 'most' important  part of iiiv iri.' lu Loudon is ir. cm-  nection with placer ��� d.iA.ns-on Mc-  ,, Kec creek.

"There has been no quartz development in 'Atlin   except   what   we  "have done, and I-doubt if theie will  e   unlil'transportation facilities  are  . ANOTHER STORY.  The Nimrod syndicate, at .the  head of which is Lord Flamilton,  has been one of the few firms that-  have spent any large amount of  money in Atlin this summer in the  matter of quartz properties of the  country. Of course, there .have  been ��-e,;end companies that have  put in.hydraulic plants and worked  ihev.i with varir.g, success, but the  managers of the Lord Hamilton  syndicate put in a five stamp .'mill  on quartz proposition and run it all  summer. Tins mill was an experiment merely.andafisueh,its showing  does not appear, to have been 'en-  enraging. While erectedjbn the  AiracoucUi * property it has been  .dn'ic.t exclusively run this summer  on 01 e from Monroe .'mountain."  They -'have worked these claims to  some-extent and have run. through  their five stamp mill about. 300 tons.  It is now reported from Atlin that  the results, weie not satisfactory, or  sufficiently so for the. managers.  They failed tb l.vke up 'the bend,  h'itteen days' grace was given them.  They failed then to' come up with  the cash. So the originel owners  have the benefit of a tunnel of 135  feet and other large improvements  on the property.���Alaskan.  THE LAST REPORT OF THE  NIMROD SYNDICATE.  The following cablegram lias'been  received fr.om the manager at At-  iin, says the B. C.

Bromley, consult-  ir.g engineer of the Nimrod Syndics le. has just returned from Atlin  and has brought,out the first gold  brick yet made from the product of  A 1L:i quartz ledges. The .brick,  which weighs 2S ozs , . was taken  from tlie plates of the syndicate's  5-stainp mill at Atlin. This stamp  mill is tlie most northerly in the  mining world: * Cablegram from  the ������.������.image 1 al Atlin, dated Aug.  27th: ��� ''Imperial Group Paris  Exhibition,  No. 2 level:   Have  cut  vein.

Among -the many gold-bearing  creeks in Atlin district, McKee  takes a very prominent position on'  account of, the la'rg; amount of  gold it has already produced, and  its immensely enhanced possibilities  in the near future, whin hydraulic  ing, will have full sway and its,golden gravels" be   washed   wholesale.  Payable gold wan first, found on  this creek"by A. .McKee in October.  1898.. At this rime "nearly all the  transient population had go;"* out  for the wintir, but those left behind,  .by. the potent power of proxies, soon  had all the new diggius staked out.  Extended work in 1899 pr. ved the  creek and benches to be good payers/and, whilst the amount of gold  won cannot be positively stated,  the'fact that all hands secured layovers for the winter and resumed  work this summer, "is .sufficient guarantee that it answered expectations.  --Early this spring Messrs. Partridge snd Adams, acting as agents  fe'r-ia Loudon Company, secured a  dredging lease .withtwo miles 'froui-  age on the lake, and running back,  with'the "creek nearly in the centre,  to claim ^4 below discover}* ��� the  beginning of the Laugley creek  claims. They also, secured t.vo  leases en the N.W. side, of 80 acres  each, with a frontage of 3,000 feel  on the creek, running up to aud  adjoining S. W. line of McKce's  discovery claim. These leases have  all been granted to the locators and  since purchased outiight from them  by Mr. C. Christopher. On or  about Sept. 1st, this gentleman, for  self, and with power of attorney  for three others, located four 80-  acre raining leases, two , on eac'*  sidfe and adjoining discovery claim  on the upper side. These.cover everything righl down to the 100-foot  placer locations on lhe creek. At  the same time x wa'-er righl lor 1,-  000 inches, of water, to be taken  from below the junction of Spruce  and Eldorado creeks, was applied  for, and being the first application,  will undoubtedly be granted. This  gives Mr. Christopher sole control  of all possible hydraulic work on  McKee, as 1,000 inches will just  about cover the available supply  of water in summer, and 1-csides,  the possession of the London  dredging lease below, gives him  the only possible dumping ground  for debris.  The plant, which is a very large  one, i3 already ou the -Atlin wharf,  complete, aud we understand a  contract has been made with the  Atlin Lake Lumb.-r Company for  at least 250,000 [cct of lumber,  which is to be cut this fall and de  livered on the bank of the lake, -at  the mouth of the creek,   before  ice  clones navigation.    From this position it will be sledded tb flume line.  The survy   for  the flume line and  pipe  line is   now being   made   by  Mr.   Wilkinson, ' D.   L.  S. ' When  Lhis is compleied,  a" large force   of  men will be put on  to grade a bed  for   the flume   before the    ground  freezes, so that in  the'spring there'  will be only the snow to shovel out,  ard <*lhe" flume can be placed'quick- '  ly in position.      By this plan active  hydrauliciug   will be commenced as  socn   as   the1  frost   is   out of the >  ground i:. lhe early 'summer- and  McKee  creek   will   probably   take  the, proud   position   of  the   banner  producer of the district.' '   ���  Too much credit cannot be given to-Mr.   C.    Christopher for'his ���  energy, skill and foresight  in   this,-  as in   all   the  other   mining   enterprises in which  he has had such a  leading   hand   in    the camp.     Mr.'  Christopher   has'   been   the   mean* ���  ol" bringing in more outside money1  for development  purposes than'any  one, and has   been   uniformly   sue-,  cessful   iu   all   .his    undertakings,,  which is only another way   of saying   thai   he   goes about them iu  proper business shape.  We learn that another party has  bonded about 73 claims on the  creek with a view to hydrauliciug  them next'summer. ' The'inteiiti m  is an entirely laudable one, but if  the claims of Mr. Christopher's  Company to the control of water  and dumping ground be valid, as  we have no reason to doubt, then  the successful running of a hydraulic mine without these necessary adjuncts will solve a problem which  has been unsolvable hitherlo.
