KASLO, B. C, FRIDAY, NOV. 12,1897.
NO. 19.
Hon. Clifford Sifton, Minister of Interior, Visits Kaslo.
He Is Accompanied by Mr. Hewitt Bostock, Our
Representative at Ottawa.
Last Monday evening; a special train
from Sandon, brought down Hon. Clifford Sifton of Ottawa, Canadian minister of the interior, accompanied by
Mr. Hewitt Bostoek, West Kootenay's
representative in the dominion parliament. Minister Sifton has just returned from Alaska, where he went to
inspeet tho trails over the t.'hilkoot and
White passes in tlie interests of the
government, in its endeavors to protect the life and property of Canadian
citizens en route to tlie Klondike. Mr.
Bostock intercepted him at Revelstoke on his return eastward aud persuaded him to pay West Kootenay a
visit. Accompanying them were Minister Sifton's Secretary, .1. A. ,f. Me-
Kenna, and A. .1. Mtiqueen, correspondent os the Toronto Globe.
The party left Nakusp Monday morning, arriving ut Sandon lieforo noon,
lunched there and spent the afternoon
in a visit to the Until and Sloean Star
mining properties. A special train was
sent up for them over the Kaslo & Slocan railway, leaving Kaslo ut 4 p. m.
It teat the time record on this road,
making the run up in 76 minutes und
back in iH) minutes, arriving in Kuslo
on its return about 7 p. in.
The visitors were greeted ut the depot by a torch-light procession und escorted to the Kaslo hotol, in whose auditorium, after dinner, they addressed
a public meeting at which Mayor
Green presided.
Mr. Hostoek'H Speech.
Mr. Bostoek wus the lirst speaker.
After greeting and thanking the Kuslo people for thoir hearty reception to
Minister Sifton and himself, he referred to the well known ability of
Kaslo's citizens to pull together ou
mutters of public interest, and, expressed pleasure that public appreciation seem, co have rewarded his own
efforts in behalf of tiie Kootenuy's interests; although he was sorry that
some proposed benefits moved so slowly.
He referred to the unusual enterprise of Minister sifton in leaving Ins
official homo to personally inspect the
entranoe to the Yukon und shin,.: some
of its hardships in the interests ol
Canadian citizens. Minister Sifton
wont from Dyea over tlio Chilcoot pass
to Lake Lindeniuii. thence across to
to Lake Bennett and back to Skaga-
way by the White pass, a distance of
17."i miles which was largely traveled
on foot.
"I also wish to call attention," said
Mr. Bostock, "to the prosperous condition of our country and Its great
progress since our leader, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, mudc such a splendid impression in England and France. Our opponents may say that this ii nil due to
a fortunate combination of eireum-
stanens, but thoy cannot deny that we
have in a short time risen from B practically unknown portion of the British
Empire to a very prominent one- 1
say that this splendid change is due to
Sir Wilfrid Laurier anil his colleagues
in the ministry. Our opponents may
say that we have not had time yet to
learn the full effects of Ihc tariff on tho
business of the country, but we observe
that tho evil things prophesied by
them at the outset have not come to
'1 am pleased to nolo that tho wide
awake business men of Kaslo have
Formed a Duncan Itivor Improvement
association, which will result in turning trade this way which naturally bo-
long here. I am glad to stale that the
dominion engineer will be here this
month to maKe u pet soniil examination
of tho locality one! to determine how to
expend to boBt advantage the government appropriation 'of $3,000 now on
baud for improvement of the Duncan
river. Let mo add that I hope for a
railway through that region soon as
well as a navigable river, and will
pledge my best efforts to help along
these lines.
"I also wish to remind you that I
have not been lax in my efforts to develop your local custom house iuto a
port of entry and expect to continue
those efforts until this is is accomplished. I hope that Minister Sifton
will help impress his colleague, the
minister of customs, with the necessity of this measure. It is not fair that
your business here should bo credited
to another port."
Mr. Bostock was freely applauded,
especially in his allusions to local
Minister Stfton's Address.
Mayor Green in introducing Minister Sifton expressed a wish that, ho
would among other things, favor the
audience with the result of his observations in the Yukon country. Minister Sifton said:
"I am more and more impressed
with the magnitude of thc Kootenay
and the great responsibility that rests
upon Mr. Bostock in adequately representing it. 'I am glad that l havo this
opportunity to inspeet its resources,
oven though hastily. Tho great difficulty in properly understanding the
needs of any country is a lack of knowledge of details, and here I find that
nothing will take the place of actually
seeing for one's self. One look is
worth a dozen official reports.
"On the Yukon, we are chielly handi-
eappod by transportation difficulties.
We are obliged to take supplies over
the Chilcoot pass from Dyea and over
the White pass from Skagaway. You
have all doubtless read the reports of
the dead horses and bad condition of
tho passes and I can say that they are
not exaggerated. I' regretted to ob-
serve the state of misery and destitution to which both men and women
were reduced enrouteto the Klondike,
In many cases it was simply heart rending.
''As to my mission, I think we were
measurably successful. The govern
ment can accomplish more than individuals. We got u lnrge quantity of
supplies safely through and police protection was afforded to all after crossing our linos. There ure more people
than'we have means of estimating who
are going in to the Yukon country next
spring and it is desirable that affairs
should be so regulated that British
justice may be enforced. All admit
that in the administration of justice we
are far in advance of the republic to
the south of us; and citizens of tlie
L'nited States will join with others in
pejoioing that Canadian law and justice will prevail upon the Yukon.
���'As to the resources of that country
1 bol eve that they hnve not been exaggerated, and 1 look forwurd with
hope to a not distant time when the
government will provide an all Canadian road to that region; The creeks
known as Eldorado, Bonanza,Too Much
Gold, and Hunker, now well known all
over Canada aro undoubtedly as rich us
reported. I give you tnis upon the
authority of that eminent and disinterested official, Mr. William Ogilvie,
Fellow of the Royal Geographical society, who has returned from thut
country and probably knows more
about it in detail than any other living
man. His groat services for the past
ton years us an explorer in tlie north
certainly entitle him to respectful
consideration. He says that the rivers
and creeks in thai eountiy for thousands of miles are rich beyond comparison���they beat tho world's record.
The Stewart river a branch of Yukon,
(100 miles in length, and with' its tributaries over 1,500 in length, abounds in
gold bearing placers which have practically never been prospected. That is
certainly tho poor man's country.
With rocker and pan, shovel and pick,
the prospector may develop his own
claim and reap all its benefits instead
of having to dispose of it for a small
per cent of its value to those having
eapital enough to develop it.
"This afternoon has been one of the
most interesting of my life. I have
been much surprised und pleused at
what 1 huve seen and hoard in and
about Sandon. I am amazed to learn
tho large amount of dividends from
the Slocan mines. My only regret is
thnt moro of,thorn arc mot owned by
Canadians. Yet do not, inisundertand
me. I havo naught against our cons-
ins to the south. I welcome citizens of
tlie United Stutes who come to help
develop the country mid hope to see
them so well treated thut they will
stay und form purl of ns. If they huve
larger experience in mining matters
than wo havo, let us keep them
among us and profit by it.
"No other 5,000,000 people in the
world have such a rich heritage as the
Canadians. I have tho fullest confidence in their capacity to properly
handle it. The first thing I shall do
on my return to Ottawa will bo to extract a promise from Mr. lUuvr. minister of railways and Sir Louis Davies,
minister of murine and fisheries to
give special attention to British Columbia; and I have no doubt that they
will do it. Since their visit here they
are your strong ardent and enthusiastic friends. 1 wus hero before in 1H8I).
If tho country coritinuos to Improve In
the noxt decade as it has in the past
one, I look for an ora of development
to begin here of whieh the world hns
no parallel nor conception. In tho
meantime, oxerciso patience, bearing
in mind that while it is impossible for
the government to do everything at
onco, still we Bhall do our best for you,
and I know you yourselves will not be
idle. I wish the peoplo: of KtUrlo all
prosperity and thank you for your cordial reception."
Minister Sifton was most attentively
listened to throughout. He is an'easy,
forcible, practical speaker and received
frequent applause. At the conclusion
of his address, Mayor Green proposed
three cheers each for the Queen, Minister Sifton and Mr. Bostock, which
wero all hoarti.ly given. .
Judging from the personal appear-
aucd of the two speakers, young men
are coming to the front in Canadian
governmental affairs. Mr. Bostock
has almost a boyish appearanco, while
Minister Sifton does not yet appear to
have reached 40 years of age. In a
brief interview with the News representative after the speaking, they renewed their expression of pleasure at
their pleasant reception in Kaslo.
From here they went te Nelson and
thence to Rossland.
Town Gives Evince of Renewed
Life and Energy.
An luterview with Siipt, Miller of the Pilot Bay
Smelting Co.
A. Campbell, is going up and   will be
ready for occupancy in u short time.
A barber shop will be the next business house added to the commercial interests of Pilot Bay.
Pilot Bay,  Nov. ".-Not
smeltor closed down at this
there been such an air of bustle and ex
citement   as   characterizes   the   town
now.   The reason for this is,   that the
concentrator attachment of the smelter
has resumed operations nnd everything
is being rapidly put in shape to  start
up at   full blast within   a   very short
time.    Workmen   are   hurrying   here
and there, columns of smoko are seen
issuing from tho   mammoth   stacks of
the company's works,   and  altogether
it presents a picture gladdening to the
hearts of our people.
Your correspondent culled uponSupt.
Miller last Saturday evening and was
very courteously received by that gentleman, who talked freely about the resumption of work at the smelter and
the immense benefit that its close
proximity to thomines would bo to the
Kootenay lake towns and the silver-
lead industry of the country.
Being asked if in his judgment tliere
was sufficient ore in sight to keep the
big smelter running at full blast whon
once started, Mr. Miller said:
"Yes. We were satisfied on that
point long before any effort was made
to secure control of the works here.
There is not a better showing in any
mining country than in the Sloean anil
Ainsworth divisions. The ore is high
grade and there is lots of it.
A Kelluevy  In I'roRpect.
"From your knowledge of the country and Its mines," asked your corres-
spondont,,"(lo you think a lead refinery
ls a possibility o the immediate future?"
"That will be au inevitable result of
the success of (ho smelter und the
further development of the mining resources of the country,'' was Superintendent Miller's reply.
"What will bo treatment charges
for tho Slocan und Ainsworth oros,"
wus ihe next questions
"That is difficult to answer," replied
Superintendent Miller, "owing to the
difference in the various ores, but tho
charges will he much lighter than
those at the present time."
"What capacity has the smelter?"
"It has a capacity of 150 tons every
twenty-four hours."
"How many men will you employ
when the smelterrosumes operations?''
"About 125. as near as I can estimate
the number at this time."
Ke;,so,,-  for Former Delays.
"You have been delayed somewhat
in golting down to business, have you
"Yes. The renson for thut is, there
nre many details to look after, and
tho plant has been idle so long that it
requires ranch time and attention to
put everything in proper shape. A
largo plant of 1 his kind can not be put
in operation on short notice. Besides,
tho men who own this plant have mado
a wondorful success of the smelting
business by their careful and conservative management,. That they have
come into this field at all is the very
best evidence that they consider the
country to bo a good one and its mining future bright. Their experience
is worldwide.Taey have their choice of
all mining districts, and have chosen
this as one of the best."
Superintendent Miller is from the
Everett smelter hero. Ho is a very
pleasant gentleman to meet, and the
company Is to be congratulated that it
has its properly in such hands.
MInini; News nnd Notes of tlie Tow,,.
Messrs. Todd, Workman, McDonald
and Johnson have bonded the Silvor
Hill group to an English syndicate,
who are now in charge. The ore is
high grade oopper and galena, and the
showing is said to be the best in the
country. Tho lodge has boon traced
the entire length of three claims. This
property is on Canyon creek, u tributary of Crawford creek, and about 20
miles from nnd tributary to Pilot Bay.
The Pyramid group in East Kootenay, tributary to this point consists of
32 claims and"is about 3 miles above
St. Mary's lake and 30 miles east of
Pilot Bay. A Mr. Petty owns the prop*
erty and has had 13 men doing development there during the past summer.
The ore is pyriticcopper carrying gold.

T. B. Braden, manager of the Calgary Herald, who was recently in Kaslo, talks as follows in his paper about
our town:
"Leaving Sandon by tho K. & S. Hy.
about I p. m., a pleasant but exciting
run is made ovor the mountain, whore
the truin at times seems to be poised in
mid air, and Kaslo is reached about 4
o'clock. The road, which is a narrow
gauge, is well built and carefully run,
and passes by a number of mines, some
shippers and others expecting to be
A number of old Calgarians wero on
board,and another former Calgary mun,
.1. W. Cockle, was at the station and
conducted tlie passengers to his comfortable hostelry���The Kanlo Hotel-
one of the largest and best hotels in the
whole country. A large number of
former Calgarians aro locatod here,
and certainly they hnve at least one of
the prettiest towns in the country. The
mayor of the town, i{. F. Green, lived
at Calgary a short time in the early
days and was an attache of the transport service during the Northwest rebellion. He and his brother,who is post-
muster, hnve a largo business. He has
occupied the mayor's chair for some
years,but thinks of retiring this year.
The Kanlo Sampler.
One of the industries of Kuslo is the
sampler, where ore is received from
the mines of tho district and then rolled
and crushed into powder, a sample of
which is assayed and a price fixed on
this basis. There is also a saw mill,
planing mill, ote. It has competition
in freight rates, ns tho Internutiotiul
Co.'s bouts ns well as theC. P. R.'s,ply
on the lake, and agents of the two companies are continually canvassing the
eity merchants for trade. It has also a
good water supply and electric light
"The climate of Kaslo is extremely
good, the thermometer scarcely ever
getting below zovo in winter, and
spring opens out early. Vegetables of
all varieties grow luxuriantly and
there are some nice gardens in tho vicinity. Mrs. Alexander, whose garden
was cleared of stumps and stones this
spring, had a profusion of bloom of
delicate flowers, and although it was
tho middle of October there was scarcely any perceptible sign of of frost. She
has also a nice plot set out with strawberry plants for next year. Another
garden cleared aud sown this spring
had a lawn that would compare favorably with those ut tho coast. Here too,
dahlias, geraniums, roses, sweet peas,
carnations and other flowers were in
bloom. Pears have this year been successfully grown at Ainsworth, and
Kaslo people expect shortly to raise a
portion of their own fruit.
Some of tho mines in the neighborhood aro good shippers and dividend
payers, und others will shortly be
opened. A gold find was reported on
tho mountain across the lake from Kuslo, and a large number of claims huve
recently been staked."

Ron. Thomas Robert Mclnnes, M. D.
C. M., was born at Lake Ainslcy, Nova
Scotia, November 5, 1840, and is consequently in his iifty-seventh yeur.
His father, the late John Mclnnes,
whose fourth son he vas.eame to Nova
Scotia from Inverness, Scotland, and
his mother was a daughter of Captain
Edward Hamilton of Paisley, Scotland,
Commencing his education at a common school in his native place, Mr.
Mclnnes passed through the Normal
school at Truro, N. S., whence he
went to Harvard university, Boston,
Mass., subsequently taking his degrees
at Rush and Bennett Medical colleges.
Removing to Ontario in 1805 he married on October 5 of that year. Mrs.

In January, 1874, Mr Innea was eleo-
ed by acclamation Reeve of Dresden,
Ont,', but in April of last year he removed to British Columbia, and engaged in an extensive and. lucrative
practice of his profession iu New
Westminster. Almost immediately
after his arrival in that city he wus
appointed physician and surgeon to
the Royal Columbian hospital, and in
187G received the appointment of medical superintendent of the Provincial
Insane asylum, which position he retained for several years. In Jan. 187H,
he was elected mayor of New Westminster, an honor.again conferred
upon him in thc January of the succeeding year, and in March, ls7s, a
vacancy being caused in the representation of the district id Dominion
House of Commons by tho resignation
of the then member, Mr, James Cunningham, Mr. Mclnnes was returned.
At the general election of the same
year which took place in this province
in the month of October, Mr. Mclnnes
wus again returned, both times elected
as an independent, though a liberal,
holding the opinion that he could be of
more service to his constituents by going to Ottawa untrammelled by any
haul and fast udheroueo to any political party.
Mr. Mclnnes continued to represent

House of Commons until the -4th of
December 1SK1, when he was appointed

At Work on Hull Mines Smelter.
Nelson, I!. C, reports that the work on
the new revcrberatory and calcining furnaces at the Hall mines smelter, is being
pushed, and it is expected that they will
be completed in about two months. Thc
large blast furnace made a run last week
which broke the record, turning out _G
tons of matte in 24 liours. Everything is
working smoothly and the oro treated
continues to be of a high quality. The
management is getting in some lead ores
from the Slocan for the purpose of making a trial on the old 130-ton furnace,
which has been converted into a lend furnace. These ores are being prepared for
calcining prior to the test. It is expected
that iu the near future this furnace will
be running steadily on custom ores.

Summary of Railway-Steamer Time
Cards from Kaslo.
Mr. Clarence Alva of St. Louis, according to the Post-Dispatch, has thought ot
a little scheme which gives a very good idea of the manner in which the earth is
kept in space. Mr. Alva says a person may get the right idea if he secure a couple
of magnets and place them directly opposite each other so that the currents shall
(low in opposite directions. As shown in the cut, they should be nu Inch or so from
each other. Thc magnets should he rather strong and should be of the same slie
and strength. Then the experimenter should make a little sphere of paper or some
light substance, aud fasten two pieces of steel or similar metal to the ball, the metals
being almost exactly opposite. Then conies the work of so placing the sphere In
the exact center of the space between the magnets. If the experimenter can do
this he will have the sphere remaining in the air without any visible means of
support. It is quite a trick to get tbe thing in correct operatiou, but Mr. Alva
says it can he done.
Soldier    Who   Will    Command  Uncle
Sam's Troops In Alusku.
Ment. Col. George M. Randall, who.
Is to command the United Stntes troops
In Alaska, has had an eventful earner
in the army of the United States. He
?nllsted In the civil war as a private In

April, 1801. In October, 1801, he was
made a second lieutenant. He served
with the Fourth until he reached the
rank of major, when he wus placed lu
command of the Fourteenth New Vork
artillery. At the close of the civil war
he was made first lieutenant of the
Fourth United States Infantry, and ln
Ihe army reorganization was transferred to the Twenty-third Infantry ns
captain. He served as captain and liin-
|or of thc Twenty-third during .ill of
the Important Indian campaigns of the
West and was mnde lieutenant colonel
of the Eighth Infantry In 1804. Col.

there is grnve (longer to the human being from all sorts of microbes and
germs, which are fonder of the human
lielng than of the dog. This has been
amply proven by scientists, aud even
the Board of Health, suyH the New
York World. As a mntter of fnct the
latter body has several well authenticated cases of diphtheria contracted
from dogrs on Its records. Diseases of
all kinds lurk upon the lips nnd body
of the dog. A dog will wander about,
even though of high pedigree, and In
the course of his Journeys will make
the acquaintance of dogs of lesser degree. From them he will gather microbes as well as Hens. Then he will
return home to his fond mistress to distribute his collection Indiscriminately.
Then his mistress will pick him up In
her nrms and will hug nnd kiss hlm.
Typhoid, diphtheria, cancer and discuses too horrible to mention may result
from the caress.
Physicians havo repeatedly warned
against the habit of UUsing dogs, but
seemingly to little purpose. Kvery day
the papers chronicle onsen where some
disease hus mysteriously appeared and
where the source of contagion Is unknown. In nine out of every ton such
enses, dog kissing Is to blame. Hut leaving aside the possibility of danger from
disease entirely, the habit should be
stopped by all self-roapectlng women,
for what man would earn to kiss tbeiu,
knowing that they had previously defiled their lips kissing a dog? No mutter how clean a dog may be; no matter
how great a favorite, It should never,
no matter what tbe temptation, be

Among the many resources tbut tend
to build up a city at this point, two
now in process of development arc
especially prominent, either of which
will soon alone be sufficient to support
b town of il mblo this size.
The Hi's; one of these is the mining
industry on tbe South Fork of Kaslo
creek, which \r- entirely tributary to
this point and to no other point. Every
pound of ore coming from its mines
must pass lh rough Kaslo. Tho rich-
���oss of these mines is conceded by all,
Now thai the wagon road is completed
to the mosi important of them, their
development will be rapid.
The men recital of tho names of
������inn,.' of the besl known properties,
'���alls to mind the greatness of the
South Fork. Such groups as the Montezuma, the Gibson, the Briggs, tho
SI,,,.in and Spokane, or Sturges, llic
B. N, .... Silver Bell, Silver Bear,
Black Pox, Bismarlc and Kimberley, to
say nothing of more recent, but equally
promising locations, will doubtless in
time be enough to insure by thoir trade
alone a city as large as Rossland,
Tun second resource, although nt
present fun her removed,, just as logi-
,��� i ly belongs to Kaslo as this one, vi/,:
the trade of the l.ardo-Duncan region,
i'he immense bodies of low grade ore
,if that region will tind their natural
��� uitlot and smelting point bore. The
iteps already taken by the Lardo-Dun-
can Improvement Association are most
praiseworthy and merit the support of
every business man in Kaslo.
tt was especially gratifying to hear
Mr. Bostock state in bis address the
other evening that his best efforts
would be used to aid this moasuro aud
t nut a 83,000government appropriation
is already avaiableund will be used as
loon as the Dominion engineer can
���"mc .' id ropori some time]this month.
The news of an early railway through
that region, noted elsewhere, Is also
-cry encouraging. If no other re-
sources o.viste.I man these two, the oc-
caslofaal croaker about Kaslo's future
ought to be snowed so deep under facts
and arguments about these, that he
w,��uld never be heard from again.
Not only is the sentiment in favor of
bimetallism growing in England, as
noted in tbe dispatches published elsewhere thfi week, but it is on the ex-
; remi ly rapid increase in the United
Stat w. JAt a meeting of the executive
committee of the Bo-called National
"Sound Money" League in New Y,,ri;,
last Tuesday, lugubrious report.-, were
reoelved ,tbat rivalled ChaunCey De-
pew's -oar<.',i interview published In
the last i .sue i,   tho News.
Where i,pillion was expressed ll
abounded in the species of li le
characteristic ol gold standard followers, For instance j, Sterling Morton
vie.-presiiliiii ,,f ihe league, for Nebraska. Bryan's home, wrote
"Mr. Hryiin and his di eipie- are actively engaged in propagating money
fallacies. They have united in one conglomerate mass nil the fanatics, bigots
and IdloU in this state for tl c purpose
of upholding the free oofnage of silver
at the ration of lti to 1. It is very
painful to observe that this aggregation may quite possibly make a majority of-0,000 at the coming election for
the candidates who represent all that
in Inimical and disastrous to agriculture
nnd in fact to sound government every-
w here."
That of course ought to settle it. according to tbe lawyer's motto, "Abu. Q
of the witnesses indicates that the stock
oi argument is exhausted."
Judge W. M. Rose, vice-president of
the league for Arkansas, wrote:
������There is no change in this state.
There'is an overwelming majority for
free silver and Bryanism in every congressional district."
M. C. George, vice-president of tbe
loaguo for Oregon, wrote that his ttato
Wai"in many places honeycombed with
financial ignorance and errors." Tn
other words, those who do not agree
with the single standard men arc ii-
niincially Ignorant.
.lames Blair of St. Louis, Missouri,
wrote: "On tho whole, I cannot say
that 1 feel encouraged over tbo situation in Missouri. I fully recognize
that the strength of the silver democracy in this state is wholly due to luck
of education on that subject, .and I seo
no means at hand Whereby they can be
sufficiently informed before the next
election to materially reduce their
number."   Alas and alas!
M, F. lngails wrote from Cincinnati.
Ohio: "The result of the recent campaign shows conclusively that the south
will again drift buck to the democracy
and free silver."
Tbo "sound money" people felt so
encouraged by these reports that, as
possibly an exquisite bit of satire, thoy
appointed a sub-committee with instructions to report tbftt "bimetallism
is dead and that gold should bo the
standard of the country;" and urging
the government to officially recognize
this so-called fact. Thc sub-committee did this, with iio apparent conception of the ridiculous spectacle they
wore making Offthemselves.

steps,   Iiy   (tic   United   States   for    Fret
Commercial relation* With Ciiiiatln.
Washington. D. C��, Nov. 4.��� The
government is favorably considering
the question of recurring to tho system
of reciprocity for tho purpose of encouraging our commercial relations
with Canada. It was known that Mr,
Casson, who has been specially charged
with tho arrangements rrf reciprocity
plans, is friendly to such a course of
Ottawa. Nov. 5.���Sir Louis Davies,
who will be in Washington noxt week
in company with Premier Laurier to
attend tho Behring Sea conference,
gave yrtir correspondent this morning
some light upon the full scope of the
commission. He says: "I havo lately
been inform nd by one in the confidence
ofthe American administration that
thoy are willing to discuss reciprocity.
ft would be a ii immense advantage to
some of our industries, especially to
coal in Cape Breton and Vancouver
island, to the lumbermen, to the pulp
dealers and possibly those who handle
some of our natural products, if attained. On tho other band it does not
seem apparent what American natural products we especially want. There
lias boon nothing ollicial before our
government to indicate the desire of
tho Americans to enter into reciprocity
negotiations. This information only
comes from a side quarter, and remember our trip to Washington was arranged before tliere was any such intimation, and is for quite another purpose. Wbilothore, if wo aro approached on the reciprocity question, wo aro
willing to discuss the samo."
Another member of the government
thinks tho dispatch from Washington
published yesterday, may be based on
reliable information, and understands
thore is a strong influence coming
from tbe eastern states for such arrangement. The alien labor question
may also be discussed botwoen both

Kaslo Custom House Likely To be
Transformed this Month.
Alderman G. O. Buchanan informs a
News representative that from a conversation held with Mr. Bostock and
Minister Sifton while here, be feels
certain that, the Kaslo custom house
will bo developed into a port of entry,
practically at once. As soon as Minister Sifton returns to Ottawa he will
press the matter upon the attention of
tbe minister of customs and tho change
will doubtless be made, probably within the present month.
Thr Kaslo custom house lust year
cleared $1,(100,000 worth of ore and for
the four months already past of the
present fiscal year has already oleared
over $1,100,000 worth, or at tbo rate of
over $3,000,000 per year for this year
if the same ratio is kept up. All of this
is in the public records and ollicial documents credited to tho port of Nelson.
After this the Kaslo custom house will
be likely to receive public credit for
shipments made through here.

Thai of the Preacher Who Was Censured
For (.i-iibHtilking a Miner.
A Methodist congregation in Chicago
became very indignant on learning
thoir spiritual advisor haibgrub staked
a minor for tho Klondike, and the
minister was called upon to mako an
explanation as to bis ungodly conduct,
bo said: "The fact is I admire a miner's wealth. It's clean. There is no
blood or tears on it. It is acquired
away from the sohoining and the cut
throat competition that characterize
ordinary business ventures where the
success of ono man so often means tho
disaster and downfall of some other
man, or perhaps a number of men.
Nobody has been wronged. Tbo miner
who digs a fortune out of tho ground
has the knowledge that be hasn't robbed a soul, oven though ho becomes a
hundred times a millionaire. Then,
too, there is another factor to take
into consideration. Thc man who
makes a fortune on the board of trade,
or on the stock exchange, or in building up a gigantic business house, adds
nothing to tbo world's store of available wealth. The world, in other
words is no richer because he is richer.
Re is rich rather because somebody else
is poorer. Thc minor, ou the other
hand, whether bo digs out a hundred
dollars or a hundred thousand dollars,
adds that much to the world's wealth,
and with the added wealth, be contributes just thut much to tho possible
amount of tlio world's comforts and

Looking Towards Kooleiiuy.
,lobn G. McMillan, tho well known
mining man, is back from a month's
visit to the coast. While away he visited Seattle, Tacoma and Gray's harbor. "I was surprised/' he said, "at
the way that business has picked up
in tho last few months in all the coast
towns. A great quantity of lumber
and shingles is being turned out from
the mills, for tho roason that thc demand for these products was never
greater than it is at present. When
lumber products are in demand and
aro selling so that there is a fair margin of profit it makes good times along
tbo coast on both sides of the line. One
thing that struck me while I was on
i.lie coast, and that was that tho Klondike boom is dying a natural death.
A short timo siueeever\ body was talking of investing money in now gold
Holds, but now the tido ha? turned and
they are once more speaking of making
investments in the Kootenay country.
As money is becoming plentiful with
them, owing to the increased demand
for lumber products, we may look for
more investments in this country, it
is easy to see that this is the best place
to put money in, for if the least bit of
judgment is used, it is sure to bring in
good returns. Thoy can talk all thoy

Kootenay is good enough for me," concluded Mr. McMillan.���1 lo-^land Miner.

is a victory for tlio liberal and radical

conservative candidate, Win. Mitchell.
Mr. Mitchell is a member of the firm
of Mitchell Bros* felt and woolen merchants, and is locally well liked, but
Mr. Duckworth is not less popular on
personal grounds. The bimetallist
question played a considerable part in
tbo contest. No part of Lancashire is
more ardently bimetallist than the
southeast;. The. refusal of tho government to take any step to meet the proposals of America and Franco was used
against Mr. Mitchell, although at all
his meetings he expressed himself as
strongly in favor of bimetallism, and
advanced tho opinion that tbo prevailing bad condition of the cotton trade is
largely due to the depreciation of silver, whieh, he said had handicapped
tho Lancashire trade to tho extent of

Thc Proposed Route.
As Utopian as the project of rapid
transit to the Klondike country In the
winter may appear, it is one that bids
fair to be carried out. Imagine a modern snow train of from eight to ten
box nnd passenger cars mounted on
runners, carrying 100 tons of freight
nnd passengers, propelled by an eight-
ton steam engine, whose wheels make
five revolutions to each push of the
jiiston, climbing up the sleep White
iniss, gilding over 50 or 11101-: miles of
level table lands and through ns many
miles of virgin forests, coursing its
way over the hills nnd through the
dales, climbing huge Ice gorges, slipping over lakes like a steam yacht,
wending Its course along the tOl'tUOUS
river ways in thai arctic country, at an
average speed of from 15 to 2"> miles
an hour- or from Fori Wrangel to Fort
Selkirk, and then Dawson Olty, a distance of S1M> miles- In less Hum 10
days on the first few trips and after
that lu less than six. and then you will
kirk to Dawson City will be traveled
on the Yukon, which Ir frozen solid
seven months in the yenr. I calculate
that we can cover the distance wltb
two locomotives ln eight or ten days
and ultimately In four days.
;Road Will Be Permanent.
"The road once opened, it is readily
seen  thnt  it  will  be permanent  nnd
grow better with travel.   Turnouts nnd
stations for supplying wood fuel -will
be distributed along the route where
"ceded. Wheu a steep grade exceeding HO per cent, is encountered a steam
windlass on the locomotive will be
pressed into service to get over il. The
means used will be a wire cable
stretched from the top of the grade and
er. twin engines,  driving wlieel, ana
other   necessnry   appurtenances,   sup-:
jwrted by a steel frame.    This frame
rests upon runners fore and aft, nnd to
it is hinged by means of steel beams a
huge traction wheel between the runners.    Tliere is a drum  in the wheel.
The traction wheel in rotated by engines :
with horse power ranging from twenty
to shty, geared from five to nine ti
one.    Most of the heal from the boiler
furnace and from the exhaust steam Is
utilized In the drum,  into which  it  is
conveyed   through   Ihc   truuions.     By
this means the wheel is' kept sizzling
hot.    About the wheel Y-shaped teeth,
8 by 12 inches, are set "dodging."  The
action of ihe heat from the toothed cyl- j
inder prevents the snow from clogging, i
and at the same time compresses, with ;
the aid of the weight, the snow into a ]
solid, compact mass of snow ice, thereby givinig sufficient resistance to enable Hie teeth to pull a train with 100
tons burden or more.   The pictures of
the log train and traction wheel will |
give the reader a fair Idea of the locomotive and Its principles.

have n clear conception of this great
scheme for opening eonimunicutlon
with the Alaskan Eldorado.
Qeorge T. Glover of Chicago is the
originator of the scheme. Two years
ago he invented a new locomotive, duplicates of which have since been in
operation in the Michigan pineries.
Several of I hem are on Secretary Alger's land. Clover wrote to Secretary
Alger and asked for government aid In
establishing a line of snow trains to
Klondike. Alger endorsed the scheme,
but other cabinet members deemed it
less practicable than the plan of sending food to the Klondike miners by
reindeer tennis. The government's
failure to adopt his plan has not discouraged Glover. He says he will interest capitalists, organize a company
and hnve his snow sled road In operation before winter closes.
"There are two routes." says Mr.
Glover, "by which a snow train can
reach Dawson Olty, excepting the
route from St. Michael's to Dawson
City, up the Yukon river. The shorter Ib from Dyea through the Chilknt or
White Pais, which ls nbout live miles
attached to the locomotive. The locomotive will then wind the train up with
perfect ease. Iu case an lee gorge
should be encountered the same means
will be applied to get over it. If Ihe
gorge be very abrupt, then a steam
power 'lee dog' will answer Hie purpose.   The locomotive will be equipped
with   every   device   needed   for   such
"The locomotives to be used lu this
system will not be as heavy as those
now   In   operation   In   the   Michigan
north aud west of the (Tillkoot I'nss,
The highest grnde for about two miles
through White l'axs Is about 15 per
cent. A road through It Is now being
cut and corduroyed. Even now tbe
pass Is 1,000 feet lower thnn the Chll-
koot Pass and can be gotten over with
but little difficulty, I think. With
such nn improved road, however, ns Is
now being made through White Pass
a snow train can ascend almost as
easily as a cable ear through the Washington street tunnel, for a 15 per cent
grade has the same nsceut and descent ns the said tunnel. After getting through White Pass there Is a
comparatively level stretch of table
land for 350 miles, through which Dalton Trail ruus to Fort Selkirk, a small
place at the junction of Lewis and
Pelly rivers. These streams form the
Yukon river. From Fort Selkirk to
Dawson City it Is about 200 miles down
the Yukon river. This ls known as
the 'Overland Route.'   From Fort Sel-
plnerles, which latter range from eighteen to twenty tous. Instead, however,
they will lie built on He same principle,
not weighing more than eight tons and
with a hauling capacity of from 75 to
100 tons of freight. Tbe locomotive will
be housed like Hie one shown lu the
pictures, pulling from six to eight enrs,
one or two of which will be for passengers, sleeping and baggage pur|mses,
and the others for freight. The train
will be like a modern mixed train,
snugly built to protect life and supplies. Two locomotives will accompany
the rtrnt train, to help It over high
grades and out of deep cuts, oiK'r rough
places and around curves. Three meu
nre necessary for each locomotive���un
engineer, llromnn nnd pilot, who stands
ln front. There is an abundance of
wood along the route for fuel. Stoves
and other conveniences and comforts
will be In the passenger cans."
The locomotive Is very simple In principle and construction.   There Is a bbll-
hls heavy woolen coat, even when the
humidity would woo it from him. When
fnte had hlm transferred to Algiers a.n
Irish lndy living over there told hlm of
the virtues of the potato. She gave him
two small "prathles" to carry In his
trousers pockets, and he swears that
he al once felt the rheumatism sneak
lug from his bones. In a few nights It
was all gone. The potatoes hnve begun
to get as hard as a rock, and Corporal
"Bill" swears he will carry them
through life.���Chicago News.

Klondike  Trademark*).
The Klondike cra/.e has hnd Its effect
on the Patent Office, as hns been shown
by the application for trademarks
bearing the word. Two or three patents
hnve been applied for for objects wlilch
might be better suited for the gold
lipids there than elsewhere, but the
chief clerk refuses to tell of them.
The applications for trademarks bearing the word Klondike, Chief Newton
of the trademarks division of the Patent Office says have been mnde for a
certain brand of cigars, a bicycle lamp
and furniture. Oue word can Im? used
as n trademark as many times ns may
lie wished, with the exception that each
object must lie different. Speaking to a
reporter on the subject of trademarks.
Chief Newton said: "Whenever there ls
anything new, or any new erase, the
applications for trademarks in that line
begin lo come In Immediately. Wheu
the Trilby craze was ut Its height we
had application after application come
In for trademarks on different objects,
which were registered, until the erarc
apparently died out.

of their articles. Por Instance, a certain

It Is estimated that ln one city, Chi-
\ /S eago, the eoln-in��the-9lot machines are
devouring more than two million dollars a year. There are two kinds of
the machines: Those that have a slot
for petty gambling operations, and
those that are supposed always to give
something in return for the slot Investment Those who put money ln the
gambling slot take their chances of getting something out, and the makers and
buyers of the machines take care that
these chnncea are none too good. Those
who drop coins In ostensibly vending
slots are not gamblers, but they are frequently dupes; tbe contrivance swallows the coin, yields nothing worth
having, and seems to ask, "What are
yon going to do about It?" There is
practically no choice between them,
and both classes of slot machines
should be avoided by all save lnilliou-
nlres, aud outlawed by the State.
A man In Massnpoqun, L, I., has gone

dispensations of Providence thnt, like a
visitation of locusts, must be accepted
ns Irresistible, endured with becoming
humility ami received with praise because it does not coane more than once
In a season. But the Massapequa man,
perhaps from confusing the facts,
adopted, a different method. When the
hilarious surprise party, mule and female, gleesomely pounded upon Ms
front door, he came to the door with a
gun. The women shrieked nnd fled,
and the men, from behind trees, tried
to convince the unwilling host that
they were not white caps or tramps or
robbers. But the man with the gun
hnd his doubts, and it was only after a
long parley thnt the visitors were admitted to the house. Perhaps it was a
weak surrender. But the gun's muzzle
Is like the opening to a path of deliverance for those similarly afflicted, aud
the closed door Is like a door of hope to
all sufferers from a like siege. It may
be necessary yet to add to Invitations
to surprise parties: "Please bring refreshments and bullet proof coats."

A writer in the New Century Review,
discussing the subject from a thoroughly pro-Spanish standpoint, entertains
great hope of the early settlement of
the Cuban trouble. He pays a compliment to the patriotism of the Spanish
people and, unlike other writers, seems
to have no fear for the solvency of the
Government, but lie thinks "the inference Is reasonable that a prospect exists of some system of autonomy In
Culm, such as will save Spanish honor,
satisfy American sentiment and bring
to an end the prolonged strife that ls
ruining all Industries lu the Island."
The writer nppears to speak with authority, and we may hope that he has
good reason to predict the settlement of
the conflict. It would be much easier
to arrange terms of peace if the Spanish Government were to tnke the Initiative than It will he If our Government Is placed In the position of forcing
Spain to give way. To this we may
come eventually, for, ns the most conservative men In Ihc present administration see as clearly as Mr. Cleveland's advisers saw more than a year
ago, the Insurrection cannot be permitted to go on for many months. It has
degenerated to a mere succession of
skirmishes that can be prolonged indefinitely by the combatants, and If the
Spanish Goverminent does not end it by

]ia|>ers are nil entitled to write "Mrs."
liefore their names���a fact which, in
the opinion*** spinsters "over 40," if
there are any who have reached that
age, would disqualify them ��s jurors Iu
the case "Bachelors vs. Spinsters." As
a Jury, however, they bring in a Scotch
verdict of "not proven," and by so doing will wiu the gratitude of "bachelors
over 88." One of the ladles even hints
that there may be a good deal of method iu the mudiiess of the men In delaying to enter upon the delights of matrimony under modern conditions, leastwise she would not have the law go
matchmaking "with whip in Ks bands"
Miss Lillian Bell, lu her recent book,
has clearly established that man under
88 Is n ruw, uuttiilsihed, wearisome
product, who takes himself nnd others
far too lerlOOSly, He may lie used for
a waltz, an occasional escort, etc,, but
as a companion lu1 is Insufferable,
Grunt lug Miss Bell's conclusion. It
would scorn to bo nn Injustice to tax
men who persist In renuiluing single until they become ripe, finished, charming
to the other sex���men who take notn-
lng seriously. To seek to compel men
to marry while in their green, adolescent state would seem to be an injury
to the young men aud nlso to cast a
doubt upon the power of woman to
ehnrni this gay, brilliant creature Into
matrimony. Tbe man who defers marriage until 35 or after, however, if we
may believe the ladles now clamoring
for bis punishment, has become altogether too gay and charming, and pins,
his faith to the advice of Punch as regards matrimony���"Don't!" What the
ladles will do about It Is an interesting
question, especially for the bachelor.-
��_aeeaaland Beef fn London.
The low prices in London for Queensland, Australia, meat have adversely
affected the meat trade, writes the
Itockhnmpton Bulletin. A very active
discussion Is going on at present as to
the causes of these low prices, and it
Is evident from the various contributions to the controversy that tlie old explanation of the all-powerful and raps clous middleman Is falling Into disrepute. In Britain capital Is ever scouring this country for Investments which
will yield even modest returns, and It
Is Impossible to suppose that If tliere
were such enormous profits in retailing
Queensland beef ns some people would
have us be\leve, there would not have
been a rush Into that business which
would quickly have brought profits to
the level of those returned by other re-
tall concerns. It Is a very comforting
thing to put down all our troubles ln
the meat Industry to the rascally middleman. The middleman has no friends,
and everyone is free to bit him. But
the middleman is not the criminal he
Is made out to be. The criminal, there
Is some reason to believe, will have to
be sought ln Queensland. The facts
nppear to be that our beef ls not so
good as that of our rivals, and our
methods of putting it on the market
are far from satisfactory. There are
too many coraphilnts heard of meat
being landed In a wretched state for
them all to be fnlse or exaggerated.
The difficulties In the wny of a perfect
preparation aud handling of the ment
are no doubt serious; but they will not
be removed by Ignoring them and placing the blame for the unsatisfactory
results on the wrong shoulders.

all I have to say If It takes me till dinner time. If the railroad company
cannot afford to hire clerks that have
got sense enough to tell an honest mnn
from a pickpocket or a gold brick
swindler it ought to raise the price of
tickets or economize by building cheaper cars and advertise for n few competent���oil, you've concluded to hand
over the ticket without waiting to see

A Sensation.
That the world is coming to an end
suddenly at a given time is not what i��
referred to. There are different kinds of
sensations, as very many people know
who feel sharp twinges of pain in the
big nerve of the thigh. Sciatica is a
very painful sensation, and the torment
of it makes one think something is come
to an end. But just at the first sensation
or twinge is the best time to use St.
Jacobs Oil. The less pain the more easily
it is cured, and the oil prevents Its development by soothing the nerve. At
any stage it will cure.

The story that Thomas Jefferson was

arose from the fact that the Randolph,

rive Advertising Points.
It is as easy to spoil a good ad as il is ,Utile,tit
to write one.
Poor advertising succeeds nftcner than good
advertising fails.
Denial warmth In an advertisement will thaw
out the purses of readers.
Change the adveriix'tuMM often and each
time let il be a change forTue better.
Time is economy, but the people who have
most time have least money, and those i\ ho
have most money have least time: so concentration is neees-ary in an advertisement.
