SecretaryTaft, who is now  in Havana, is heartily disgusted  with the methods of the Cuban government, whose commissioners have  practically abandoned all efforts to  bring about peace.  Havana, Sept. 27.���All the (members of the Cuban cabinet have just  resigned.  Mining  News.  McKee Amalgamated Close Dovvn���  Othei* Items of Interest.  M. Thomson, representing English -mining capitalists in the Rainy'  Hollow -ca-mp'��� arrived in town yes-  tcr on business.  Messrs. Geo.'Sinclair and, Hugh  Mo'lyneaux returned Friday from-a,  short trip into the Rainy Hdllow,  section of Atlin .district.  Mr. E. -N. JBruce, representing  English .capitalists, aud Mr. I��\ S.  Clarke, mining expert of Vancouver,  were visitors in -camp last week.  Dining their stay they spent,some  time on Spruce-creek, where they  thoroughly inspected and w.ere 'favorably impressed with -the plant and  holdings of .the Northorn Mines  Limited.  After the clean-up of the first few.  boxes of their sluice last week, wherr  they secured $8,000, the 'Sociote  Miniere de la Colombie Britaunique,  Boulder creek, made a rough clean-:  up of lhe rim of their pit and obtained an additional;���-$2,000 in nuggets, the largest of' which weighed,  S oz.,'Z2 pw. T.-Obalski, manager,  and Mr. E. 'J. de Lamare, director  and father -of the-coiiipauy.,   express'  themselves as well pleased   with the  1  results of 'this seasoh'.-s .operations  thus far and both gentlemen are'  confident that next year's output  will be still'larger. '"Up to date this  season the company have cleaued-  up over.$2,7,ooQ, and tli'issum should  be greatly increased by the final  clean-up before the water fails.  ���Owing to shortage -of water the  McKee Amalgamated Hydraulic  Co., of which Mr. S. H. Burnbe is  manager, made their final clean-up  for the season last week and secured  350 ounces of gold, or.$5,6oo. The  total clean-up by this company Tor  their operations of the present season amounts to over $40,000 and,1  although a larger auioiuit was obtained .froui their 1904 operations,  the company and management .are,  well satisfied with the returns. During the season upwards of 8,000  square yards of .bedrock were clean-  ed-up and, as the bank averages  from 130 to 142 feet in depth.it will  be .seen by a slight .manipulation of  these '.figures .that an enormous yardage of gravel was moved. .Piping  ���--which ������commenced an the :**lhof  May .a 1 id was continued for 120 odd  clays���during the .first two months  was carried on with two 6 in..monitors; a 4'in..monitor was-substituted  for one of these during the third  ���and part of the fourth months, and  for the last three weeks' operations  there was only sufficient water for  one'6 in. pipe. The company used  considerable powder this season to  break .down the banks and, like  other-operators in .the camp, they  have found that a'judicious use of  It enables them to more satisfactorily  sluice a much larger yardage of  gravel than when depending entire  ,ly on water as heretofore.  The Atlin Consolidated  ��* .Mining Company.  Operators -of a  Steam  Shovel' on  Tar Flats.  The Atlin Consolidated Mining  Company, of which O. B. Perr)'- is  general-manager and T. D. Harris  superintendent, installed its plant  on Tar Flats this season and began  mining .operations on August 15th.  On Sept.' iSth and 22nd it was  visited by your correspondent:  The"ground, popularly known as  Tar Plats, is situated on the north  bench of Pine.creek about one mile  above the town of Discovery and extends from Nugget Point .to beyond c  Gold Run. The property was  bought last-year by O. B. Ferry who  felt satisfied, from the,careful and  thorough examination made b}' H.  W. E. Canavan, that the investment  was.a good one for the ^.capitalists  whom he represented, naiiiicly, the  Messrs. Guggenheim.  The management is working this  property -by steam shovel aud, apparently, has endeavored'to have  the tramming aud sluicing systeir--  commensurate in capacity with the  shovel.  Theplantns new aud many of the  hands are' new, so delays have oc- ���  ciirred'this first month that will uol*_  occur again. Owing to an unsettled  road-bed cars have been too prone  lo jump the track. The moving of  the shovel as digging progresses will  be made more economical and rapid.  The shovel -is a 70-ton Bucyrus*:  ���i->4 yard-dipper. This is a heavy  shovel, it will be observed, for a'dip-  per of such-capacit3'. It has three  engines. For the digging engine  too h.p. is required; and for the  swinging and dipper engines about  30 'h.p. -each. Wood is' the fuel  used, -5 to 6 cords being the daily  consumption. Power is conveyed  to the dipper by chain.  The dipper has teeth, four in  number and 16 inches long when  new. Constant friction, however,  soon wears them down. Piobably ���  manganese steel with points replaceable would be an improvement. The  boom is long enough to admit of a  cut 40 feet wide.  Watch iu hand, your correspondent timed the shovel filling cars lo  find''the rate was two cars (six cubic  yards) a minute, or a train of six  cars.-iii three minutes. Thus, when  delays-are cut down an enormous  yardage, can be handled.  .From August 15th lo Sept. 1SU1,  inclusive, 12,100 car loads  of   dirt  were   discharged   into   the   sluice,  which means a rate of  I,500:.eUBIC VAKOS I'-VM DAY  for, during the time given, the-  shovel was shut down on one occasion for four days and 011 another  for five'.days. The record run to  date is 46S cars, i.e. 1,404 cubic  yards, in nine hours.  The heighbofthe working face is  18 feet. The gravel,is yellow, compact and uniform with few bovvldeiir.  too large for the dipper.    No  l>Ut!&��:  (C'uu'.'.iiuiyl JJ" ,iitii��i'..y.  y-  & ATLIN,   B.

At first,   the  sluice  was   100 feet long, now it is  ���double that length with two Y's  to  better  distribute  the.   tailings.    Its  ���grade is eight inches to 12 feet with  the exception of the first 't2   boxes,  where  the grade is one inch to the  ���foot. . ,       '  The first three boxes are paved  ���with'45-poiuicl steel rails, the remainder-���except the extreme ends,  where blocks are. used���with steel  angle iron. 3 in. x 3 in. x '% in.  There is an under-current, but it  is not made use of at present, except when cleauing-up, because  without: it the water does better service on the tailings pile. Mercury  is thrown into the sluice 'every day,  to to 12 pounds at a time.  One thousand miner's inches of  water suffices tor sluicing. This is  'conveyed from the so-called "Min-  ���crs' Ditch''' by 800 feet of 26 to 28  inch steel pipe, which empties at  the, head of the sluice.
