 ATLIN'S HM WILL BE SHORT  As a Placer District.  Victoria, June 21.���Tlie find made in  the Atlin  district during  the  winter is  said to have to have been, made by a man  named McKay on claim No. 22 below discovery on Pine creek.    He had eight men  working   live   days   and  took   out   ten  pounds of gold, giving him from $1500 to  $2000.    Dr.  Mitchell on .'i and  -1  above  discovery, on the same creek, is reported  to have found a nugget weighing a pound.  Willow   creek   i.s   turning   out    well.  Spruce creek is  promising  below  Sixty,  but above there bedrock is too deep (o be  reached profitably.    Otter  creek  i.s   said  to be almost worthless.    Boulder is panning out well for a short distance  above  discovery, and Wright creek shows some  good nuggets for five or six claims above  and below discovery.    Ruby creek is not  considered much good.    Birch   creek has  one or two claims near discovery.    There  was   too  much   snow  on Dixie  creek  a  week ago  to  make a forecast  possible.  The general impression is that tlie Atlin  will have to be hydraulieed to bring out  all that there is in it, and that  ordinary  sluicing will give out in-a season  or two.  Prices in Atlin City of ordinary commodities are in  some  instances  cheaper  than   at  Skagway.     Flour,   which   was  quoted at $9 and $10 for a 50-pound sack  in March, sells for $3.50 to $5 ; St Charles  cream has dropped from 50 cents a can to  25; fresh  meat   is  sold for  25  cents  a  pound   and    porterhouse   steaks  for  '10  cents;   rice   is  twenty   cents  a pound,  cornmeal 15 cents and ham and bacun 30  cents.    Meals in the hotels have  been reduced to 50 cents each, and single  rooms  for $1 a night, while hi one of Skagway's  hotels $1.50 a night is  still  charged for  rooms.     AVood    is  comparatively  high,  bringing from $S to $10 a cord.  &>  L*..  -"Hiv.   ��9  PUBLISHED AT NELSON,  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE *>,  ISO'.).  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  goods into Canada, was charged before  police justice Kennan this afternoon with  having stolen the same from Mrs. .lennie  Tennant. Mrs. Tennant returned last  night from Rossland, where she went to  get some of the jewelry pawned there by  Barlow. She says the man had sold jewelry to the value of $150 for $00. Mrs.  Tennant was notable to secure this. To  get back her lost jewels she would have  to pay the sum for which they were  pawned or prove that they had been stolen from her by Barlow. So she returned  without them.  Barlow would not make a formal confession that he had stolen the jewelry  from Mrs. Teniianb, but he expressed his  willingness to go back to San Francisco  with Mrs. Tennant and stand trial there.  This arrangement was finally made, and  by agreement the case was dismissed  when it was called in the police court  this afternoon.  NO  MORE  TALK ABOUT WAR  Mayor's Resignation Causes Trouble.  Brantford,   June   21.���This   city   is  much exercised over the question to have  or not to have a new mayoralty election.  The city council, by a majority, does not  want  it,  for  reasons  wliich are  these:  W. G. Raymond, mayor of Brantford, received the appointment recently of postmaster,  and thereupon  sent in  his resignation, the document expressing the  intention   that   the  resignation   should  take effect at a future date.    Under the  new   act    of   the    legislature,   the   resignation   of    a    mayor,    if    it    takes  place   after   July   1,   may  be  followed  by    tlie     election      by     the      council  of ' one   of   its  members   to   the   office.  Now mayor Raymond's resignation was  to take effect before July 1st, and  thcre-  , fore the council cast about to  oppose it.  The opinion was given that the  resignation was not proper, being only a' notice,  and Mr. Raymond was asked  to do the  thing  all  over again,    lie said No, and  declared himself no longer mayor.    An  eminent Toronto queen's counsel gave the  opinion that the resignation was perfectly legal, but nevertheless the city  clerk  refused to call for a now election.   Now,  Mr. Raymond, or mayor Raymond  is becoming tired,    lie has instructed  Mr. S.  A. Jones to move at Osgoodo hall on Monday for a mandamus, compelling the City  of Brantford to call for a new election,  and tliere will be a hot time  in the old  town.   Baking Up Old History.

According to  counsel for Great" Britain the first explorer Avho really reached Guina was De-  berrio, and liis expedition Was intended,  sir Richard added, to apply to a different  part of the country, and foi' a different  object thai! alleged by Voiie/aiela, who  soitght to apply it to a small district. Sir  Richard protested- against its being  pieced oil so as to establish tlie so 'called  Spanish title. He further asserted tliat  it had failed miserably, as both, the Dutch  and Spanish historians agreed tliat there  Avas only one Spanish settlement on the  Orinoco before 1720.  No Prosecutor Appeared.  R. Charles Cliffe, editor of the Sandon  Mining Review, appeared yesterday before stipendiary magistrate W. H. Lillie to answer to the charge of having  stolen the books of the Sandon Miners'  Union. No one appeared for the prosecution and and the case Avas dismissed.  It is said that Mr. Cliffe intends taking  proceedings against the union. The  union is making great efforts to iind the  books, and to that end applied for a  search Avarrant to search the ollice of E.  M. Sandilands, secretary of the miue  owners' association, but nobody could be  found avIio possessedc a blank form of search  Avarrant, and e\**entually Mr. Sandilands  had to be asked for the required form.  Quite unsuspectingly he furnished it, and  Avas naturally much disgusted to find out  afterAvards Avhat it Avas wanted for. The  search did not reveal anything aud the  Avhereabouts of the books still remains a  mystery.  German Friendship for America.  Bi-i't-LiN, June 21.���During the course of  the debate in the reichstag today Baron  Von BueloAV said: "We hold it to be our  first duty to see tliat our relations Avith  other poAvers are undisturbed by thoneAv  acquisition, and avo hope that our rola-  tionsAvith our immediate - neighbors, the  Ainericaus and Japanese, Avillonly become  niorerintimate.* We have not thought of  placing ourselves in opposition to the  Americans in the south Pacific, and avo  as little wish to prejudice American interests as America contemplates injuring  us Avithout cause or reason.

A Working Miner's Version.  To   Tim   Editor   of  Tin.   Tuiiii'nk:  There   appears   in     the    Nelson    Miner  of   the   20th   an   article   from   another  anonymous  creature,   signed  "A    Mine  Manager."    It is amusing  to notice the  lame and rather hackneyed   excuses  advanced by one who evidently would better fill the position   of a  mucker than a  manager.    Could  some of the  ignorant  mine operators' strong supporters follow,  the Avorking miner and look at the hoA*els  called bunk-houses and share for a few  days some of the hardships of a miner's  lot they Avould be inclined to take a different vieAV of the  situation.    Not  only  does  the  miner put  up   witli   the foul  smell arising from filthy sleeping apartments, but iu  many  mines  he  works in  bad air and Avet places.    When   twenty-  four men are crowded  into a  room sixteen feet square, and  mingled with the  air that they breathe is the odor of damp  sox, AA'et clothes and other filth, one can  Avell imagine, even although he has never  been compelled to occupy a bunk  there,  how A'ery unhealthy  such  a room must  be.     Noav placing  yourself, " Mr.   Mine  Manager"   and   "Business   Man"  in   a  miner's position, Iioav would you like  it,  and Avhat Avages would you Avant?   It is  unnecessary to again quote the fact that  a skilled miner can do as much Avork in  eight as in ten hours';' as Ave  have fairly,  demonstrated it to  operators, managers  ���and business men alike.

Manila, June 21.���9 p. m.���The insurgent army has taken to the SAvamps  and hills beyond Inius. The largest  force is supposed to be in the neighborhood of San Francisco, towards Malabon,  holding a position more towards the lake  according as exigencies demand. General Wheaton returned to Imus, bringing  tliree men who were wounded in yesterday's fighting. The heavy rains that fall  nightly make campaigning uncomfortable. The roads are still good, but the  rice fields adjoining them are pools of  water. The Filipinos will not fight unless they can meet the American troops  in positions most advantageous to themselves or take the reconnoitring bodies  into ambuscade. It is impossible to  learn Avhat effect the recent defeat has  had upon their leaders. Tin's should be  disheartening, for they had boasted that  the Americans could never conquer the  proA'ince of CaA'ite, Aguinaldo's home  country, Avhere he always worsted the  Spaniards.  General Otis recently received a letter  signed by tlie native women of the 2U'o-  vince declaring that if all the men Avere  killed the Avomen avou Id still keep up the  fight against tlieir enemies. Copies of the  insurgents' organ, Independencia, shows  that the Filipinos' hopes of success are  kept aflame by political moA'cmcnts in  America. The Independencia prints reports of alleged speeches made at .different places in the United States denouncing the Avar, and it asserts that they represent American sentiment. It declares  also that the Filipinos Avill continue- the  war until the next presidential campaign,  Avhieh is sure to result iu a decision to  withdniAV the American troops from the  Philippines.  It is reported that the Spanish garrison at Balera, in theproA'ince of Principe,  on the coast, of Luzon, Avhicli had;become  reduced to thirty men finally surrendered  to the Filipinos after holding out for a  year. The Filipinos imprisoned two Englishmen on the island of Samar, south-  Avest of Luzon. The British first-class  cruiser Grafton steamed there from Cebu  and her commander demanded their release. Wheu this Avas refused he landed  a force of merines and cleared his ship  for action, whereupon the Englishmen  Avere handed over.  Information is Desired.

C U 111 l KNT It ATE OK INTKKBST PAID  THEY   WELCOME   THE   THAW.  Winter is ;just breaking up in the Col:  oraclo mountains. Trains are running  again in tlie valley of the Blue, and Uncle  Sam has called in his"snowshoe brigade  of mail earners. For six months tlie  snoAV-covered mouutaius have presented  a spectacle of unparalleled beauty and  grandeur. Gorges have been packed 200  feet deep with ice and snow. No man  knows how deeply the summit of the  Great Divide may be buried in its magnificent white cap. Away up near the  timber line of Buffalo, the "storm king"  of the Blue Malley, five miles from the  little town of Breckinridge, one sees tiny  brown wisps above tlie surface of the  snow. They look like stunted weeds, but  they are the topmost branches of tall  pine trees, only these being visible to tell  of the forest below. During the winter  the suoav has been on the level ground  from five to six feet deep.  Breckinridge is in the centre of the  snowstorm region and a Avinter here  gives one an idea of Avhat snow may be,  the splendor in Avhicli it garbs tlie  Rockies ami the perilous blockade it  builds about the miners' lints. This little mining town, nearly 9000 feet aboA'e  sea level, is in tlie valley of the Blue, in  the southern part of what is called Middle  Park, and on the South Park branch of  the Colorado Southern railroad. It is  1 _10 miles west of Deirver and thirtyriiye  miles northeast of LeadA'ille.  Tlie valley is -praoticallyiiiikiibSvii except" to the ranchmen and1 the miner.  .Few tourists haAre as yet found their Avay  - hero. 'Tlie Blue riA-er, which giA'es the  valley its name, runs its course for seventy ,miles betAveen these glorious mountain ranges, and then empties into the  Grain!. Just hero the* valley is over a  mile wide, inclosed by ranges Avhose  _peak's lift from 12,000 to 1-1,000 feet, and  on the east the summits of Grey and Jr-  Avin, peep OArer from the Continental  Divide.  During December and January the  blockading of trains AA'as intermittent,  but from the 1st of February until the  middle May no train entered the valley  from either direction. On the sixth day  of February the huge "rotary," propelled  by six locomotives and throwing snow  fifty feet into the air, rounded the hill  above Breckinridge on its Avay OA'er the  pass. Since then no engines haA'e been  able to bring it back. Tn the main street  of Breckinridge the suoav Avas so deep until the thaw of last Aveek that tunnels  Avere dug through it from the sideAvalk to  tlie-beaten path-iiP-he middle of the  streets. Many of the loAver houses,  stables and Avoodsheds have been completely submerged, only a bit of the roof-  tree visible. Communication has been  cut off with the rest of the Avorld for  Aveeks save by the uncertain means of  the postal service, carriers coming and  going on snowshoes.  When the situation reached i_ really  serious indication it avHs eoneiuded in  Breckinridge to undertake to build a sled  roild froin ihgre over the pass to the  station in South PiU'k. wh&re-freight had  been eolleetiiig. The 1'oad of ten iniles  between this place (viicl Breckinridge had  been kept open all along. The people  appropriated two oi* three hundred dollar's for the venture,, and ntraiiy twenty  nien went out to help in the building Of  the road. It Was accomplished, and after  the middle of March supplies of provisions were brought in jn sleighs from over  the pass, thirty miles away, and an occasional passenger also came in or went out  by this route. Since the warmer Aveather  has softened and granulated the suoav  this road, like all other sleigh roads, lias  become almost impassable.  Paths or trails and roads here are not  shovelled, as where the snow conies in  less quantity, or rather AA'here the wind  bloAVS less persistently. A path that it  had taken a half day to shovel might be  filled in an hour. When tlie first snow  conies it is trodden, Avherever the path is  to be, and continuous -walking over it  packs it harder after each successive  storm, so that the "trail" rises with the  increasing siioaa', and, if constantly used,  ahvays presents a hard surface ou a leA'el  with the suoav which surrounds it.  Fences are mostly covered, and before  many houses here the drifts are several-  feet high, and in some places nearly as  liigh as the second story. In such places  steps are cut in the side the drift facing  the door, and the'descent to the store or  house thus made. __.  The only method of locomotion anywhere off the trails is by means of snow-  shoes.' A few of the Canadian web variety are used, but the regular Norwegian  ski are most in evidence. They are commonly from nine to twelve feet in length  and from tliree to fiAre inches in width.  They are made of hardwood, when that  can be procured, but are mostly of pine..  In climbing long hills, to obviate the  possibility of slipping backAvard, little  blocks of wood are fastened under the  shoe, just back of the heel place, or some  pieces of cloth or rope, called "toggies,"  are wound around the shoe.  The summit of the hill reached, these  are removed, and the expert, using along  pole Avith AA'hich to balance, glides swiftly down the steep, often at the rate of a  mile a minute. SnoAVshoe coasting on the  lesser hills about the town furnishes fine  sport for the young people, and on moonlight nights the A'alley echoes Avith their,  shouts. ' :  A    really   uncomfortable    experience  peculiar to this altitude is AA'hat is known  as "suoAvburn"���the reflection of the sun  from  the suoav burning the face till in  some cases it is'very sore.    The burning,  is more intense than the  direct  rays of  the sun iu summer or even reflected sun-;  liglit   from   water.      Dark   glasses   are!  usually worn on sunny days to protect;  the eyes, though men who are obliged to;  Avork in the open of ten protect theirs by \  blackening the loAver part of their faces.;  But   greater care is   needed to preA*ent  "suoAvburn,"  and  not  only ..women but;  men avIio haA'e long distances to ride or  Avalk, Avill noAA',  in  these  clearer spring  days, frequently be seen with heavy A'eils  about their faces.    Although this is a region of such terrible shoavs, the cold is by  no means  unusual.    One nignt in February  the thermometer  registered  41 degrees beloAV zero, once 30 degrees beloAv.  Nine nights in the tAvo coldest months it  ranged bctAveeii  12 degrees   and l28   degrees. J For the other nights, Avhile occasionally below zero,  the average'lowest  record aviis over 5 degrees aboA'e.    Only  tAvieo in all  that time was  there a drop  beloAv zero in the daytime, and the highest average for all  the days  of the tAvo  months Avas 27 degrees above.    There has  been no suffering among the people from  l��*ick of food owing to the unusual severity of the winter,  as has  been reported.  Much lh'e stock, howeA'er, perished.  Quelling a Porto Rican Outbreak.  The story telegraphed from Havana, -  about the conspiracy to overthroAV the  American authority in* Cuba reminds mo  that a. similar scare Avas once attempted  in Porto Ilieo. One morning a man from  one of the interior toA\*us came to headquarters and in a most imperious manner  announced that it avus imperitive that he  should sec general Henry alone. He AA'as  shoAvn into the general's office Avithout  ceremony and asked to state his business.  With a great many preliminaries aud  mysterious airs he Avhispered that a conspiracy aviis ou foot to assassinate all of  -tJie-A]iieriean-of(ieials--OA*erpoAvei'-the-soI~  diei'ii and seize the goA'ernment. He admitted that he had reluctantly joined tho  plot, but Avas remorseful and Avas Avilling  to reveal the details and give the names  of  the men   engaged,   provided he Avas  TROPICAL FRUIT DEPOT  Corner Raker and AVard Streets.  AArell rewarded and assured of protection.  General Henry had been lookiug him  OA'er and "sizing him up" during the inter vieAA', and AA'hen the A'isitor finished his  narration remarked, indifferently:  "Is that all?"  "Yes," replied the stranger.  ''Well," said general Henry, "you go  home and advise your friends to commence digging graves at once. They will  need a good many, for the first time a  shot is fired in hostility to the United  States I "will hang every man avIio is engaged in the conspiracy, directly or indirectly, and I knoAV them all. Good  .morning."  Nothing more was eA'er heard of the  outbreak.  Lesson by Telegraph.  A discussion as to Avliich i.s the proper  Avord to use, "got" or "gotten," was the  feature of an uptown evening company  on Friday, and after most of the party  had expressed their thoughts on the subject, with the result that opinion AA'as  about equally divided, a bald-headed man  spoke up, saying he had become convinced that the word that should be used was  "got". When asked his -reason, he replied  that about a AA'eek back he decided, Avhile  at his office in the afternoon, to take his  FULL LINF OF  Avife to the theatre at night, and he sent  to his home in the suburbs the foIloAving  telegram:    "I. haA'e gotten tickets for the   Theatre tonight.    Meet  me   at the  theatre." The telegraph operator had  deciphered that message to read: "I haA'e  got ten tickets," and the result Avas that  the Avife, joyed at the news, lost no time  in inviting eight of her friends, and all of  them greeted the sender of the telegram  at the theatre. He declared to the company that it cost him quite a penny to  learn Avhieh aviis the proper word   to use.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  II-.All..  K. I). Mcrm'on. Mb. Vornon  II. Flincnmn, Fort Steele  J. F.

Mrs. Will Hanks of Mitchell, Montana,  arrived in Nelson yesterday on a visit to  her brother, Charles IE. Ink of Till- Tni-  III'NIC.  Tom Duncan had an awkward fall from  his bicycle yesterday opposite the Grand  Hotel on Vernon street. When falling  he was un fortunate enough to strike his  heiid against a broken bottle, sustaining  two or three nasty .seal]) wounds.  One of the subjects that "will be discussed at the next meeting of the city  council will be that of verandas which  project over the sidewalk. The owners'  will probably be instructed to remove  them by a certain date.  It is announced that there will be no  more county court sittings until after the  long vacation. So now all cases still  pending must go over until September 5th.  Unless the majority of the members of  the board of school trustees change their  minds, there will be more than one vacancy upon the board withiu the next  thirty days. The action of the education department in deciding to stop  the salaries of teachers for the time during whieh the school "was closed during  May has brought matters to a head. The  trustees no*w say tliat unless the education department shows them more consideration thoy "will resign in a body.  George 0. Tunsta.ll, junior, local manager for the Hamilton Powder Company,  is circulating a petition praying the police  commissioners to remove the soda water  fountain in W. F.Teetzel & Company's  premises. The preamble to the petition  sets out that a soda water fountain exploded somewhere in  the United States  and killed the attendant. From this the  deduction is made that the fountain in  Teetzel ifc Company's premises is a menace to the lives of the people of Nelson,  and its removal is accordingly prayed  I'or. Tin; petition is being freely signed.  A. 11. Holdich, the Avell known assayer,  lias been offered the post of assayer for  the Great Western Mining Company by  \V. H. Poole, manager of the company.
