KASLO, B. C, FRIDAY, OCT. 8,18971
NO. 14.
H on. J. H. Turner in Town Last Wed-
A Very Satisfactory mid Complete Interview witti
a New
Accompanied by Gold Commissioner
Dennis, Hon. J. H. Tumor, premier of
tbe province, arrived in Kaslo from
Nelson last Wednesday afternoon and
staid over night, returning on th*j International yesterday morning. Accompanying him on his tour of the
province is Mr. N. S. Wright, a young
man from San Francisco, son of an old
friend of Premier Turner.
While here, tho premier's time was
quite fully occupied in receiving the
representative men of the city, but
through the courtesy of Recorder John
Keen,ho found time to devote to a very
satisfactory talk with a News man in
Mr. Keen's office. His itinerary from
hore was aB follows: To-day he is to
be at Trail, to-morrow at Ro.sland and
lifter that ho hopes to go to Grand
Forks, with a cross country trip to
Penticton and Vernon if possible Since
leaving Victoria lie has visited Vancouver, New Westminister, Chillwaclc,
Revelstoke and Nelson. He expressed
regret at his time being too limited to
visit the towns of the Slocan on this
trip, but he has Co be ln Victoria again
within a fortnight which fact shortened his stay in the Kootenay.
Premier Turner Is a distinguished
looking elderly gentleman in his iOi.li
year, but with a vigorous bearing a d
dear bright eyes, fiat contrast strongly with his snow white,hair. He was
through West. Kootenay, including the
Slocan mining district, last year, and
expressed great intercs' la the wonderful advance made in the who).- d!
tried. lu> could uot sue siui'ilii1 r
duced price of silver had cut any figure
here and thought that it was probably
more than offset by the rise iu the
l��rice of lead.
He thought that the public works
either inaugurated or completed since
the last session of the legislature haa
proved of great advantage to the province. He WM especially Impressed
with the high financial standing and
good credit of not only the province
itself hut also of all the cities in it. He
believed that the next session of the
legislature���which would be In January, 1898 -would be likewise impressed
with this condition sufficiently to warrant the provision of large additional
public works expenditures for the coming year, both for the mining and agricultural districts. He was struck
with the interlacing of interests that
aro developing between the agricultural and mining-regions. The former
are producing wheat, butter, cheese
and fruit as never before and finding a
ready home market for it on account of
the mines. The farmers at Armstrong
near Vernon have a co-operative (louring mill only 18 months old that has already paid 16 pur cent dividends.
At the coming session of the legislature, the premier said that there were
several new railroad franchises to be
applied for, including one from the
Stlckeen river to the Yukon. He believed that all these new railroad enterprises should, where bona tide, bo
carefully fostered, but believed that
their subsidising should be left more
to the Dominion than to the Provincial
government. Regarding the operation
of the Companies Act, he thought that
hardly sufficient time had elapsed to
test its practical workings thoroughly,
but that as far as he could see, its operations had been satisfactory as a whole.
As to the Mineral act, while it seems
to be giving general satisfaction, yet
he thought that it needed some amendments���notably one to stop prospectors
evading their assessment work by having their claims relocated for them by
friends at tho expiration of the legal
Concluding, Premier Turner said:
"The public offices of the Province
will be removed to the new government
building in Victoria, Nov. 1st, and the
next session of tho legislature will also
be held there. This fine public building is the most economically and best
constructed one that I lenow of, and the
people may feel proud that their $8.0,-

Sir 'Charles Tupper and Sir Mackenzie Bowell Visit Slocan Points.
Two of Canada's ex-premiers, 8ir
Charles Tupper and ,Sir Mackenzie
Howell, are passing through the Kootenay on business connected with their
mining Interests. They were In Slocan City last Thursday and thence to
Rossland, whence they expect to go to
the coast. The Revelstoke Herald
Bays that Sir Charles, the conservative
leader is looking well and carries his
76 years lightly. He showed no signs of
fatigue from his long journey. He conversed with several friends on the platform and when the time oame for the
train to pull out, both he and Sir Mackenzie hopped on the cars with the
agility of schoolboys. Tbe two conservative veterans met quite by chance
and laughed heartily over the idea that
the object of their joint expedition was
to offer the leadership of the party to
.Sir Hugh Mamlotiald
He Talks About Rosebery, Kaslo and
A. M. Beattle, agent for the Rosebery townslte, was in town recently
and says, "Keep your eye on Rosebery," He predicts that within six
weeks tho railway from Slocan crossing
to Slocan City will be completed, and
that thereafter tho bulk of the Arrow-
bead lakes business will come through
Rosobery, the cars being run onto
barges at Slocan City and towed up
tho lake and transhipped to Nakusp at
Rosebery. He says that the Denver &
Colorado Smelting Co. is acquiring interests in and around Rosebery with a
view to making that a smelting point,
and that the C. P. R. interests are very
favorable to such an arrangement.
Incidentally Mr. Heattie remarked
npon the relative merits of Kaslo and
Nelson. He thinks that Nelson is now
at the high tide of Its prosperity, and
that after tho C. P. R. gets through
selling lots at Nelson, it will proceed
to push Robson as tho junction for the
Crow's Nest road. He says ho would
much rather own lots In Kaslo today
than in Nelson, and predicts that in
five years from now Kaslo will be a
third larger than Nelson will then be.
He considers that this year's building
boom in Nelson was stimulated by the
fire limit by-law, which required all
people intending to build frame structures within the fire limits to do so before a certain date, or thereafter bo required to build with brick or stone.
HoiHwly the Beat Policy.
Honesty in selling advertising space
is more than merely carrying out the
conditions of a contract. Honesty, as
we look at it, meanB to put all the
forces and energy of a newspaper behind evory advertisement which appears in its columns. It means the employment of time and attention on the
part of the publisher to prepare advertisements for his patrons that are certain to be seen and so honest and emphatic as to bo believed. It means, on
the part of the advertiser, the buying
of apace in mediums that are selocted
for their known quality and worth-
not for any reason of favoritlam or
liking. There Is no brag or bluster
about this talk.   It is fact.

Waiting Tor England's Answer.
London, Oct. J.��� The chancellor of
the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach, will return to London some
time during next ����eek, where his arrival is eagerly anticipated by tho
United States monetary commissioners.
While the chancellor of the exchequer
may communicate a message immediately to the commissioners, it may be
that it will be a notification that the
government Is still unable to give
them a definite rejily to thoir proposals, but hopes to be able to announce
Its 1'iinclvsiinis at home at a specific future timo. [Speculation as to what the
lepiy "may be" would probably be just
as accurate from any intelligent reader
as from the n uthor of the London dispatch.���Ed.]
More Comment oa tin- Bxpecteu Answer-
New York, Oat. fi.���A special cablegram from London to the Kvening Post
"There is increasing interest in the
city and some concern as to the probable nature of Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach's coming reply to the United
States bimetallic commission as to the
use of silver. Some persons go bo far
as to assert that, subject to certain
conditions. throo^'inta may be sou-
ceded, namely: A reopening of the
Indian mints, the holding of one-fifth
silver in the Bank of England reserve,
and the raising of legal tender silver
from ��2 to 45. Such assertions may but
premature, and oven Incorrect, but
they come from too good a quarter to
be wholly ignored."
To Reopen the Inula Mints
London, Oct. 5.���The Times this
morning, in an editorial on the recent
currency correspondence, calls for the
publication of details as to what the
French and American governments demand and offer. The Dally News, in
Its financial article, refers to the rumors that an active correspondence is
proceeding between the homo and the
Indian government, and that the concessions to America will include the
re-opening of the India mints.
The Times in a special article this
morning says that the Walcott commission intends to request the government to give a final and immediate reply to its monetary proposition. After
giving a review of tbe history of the
question, the writer of the article concludes: "The core of the whole subject Is the question whether bimetallism Is wise or foolish. The United
States and France say It is wise. On
behalf of Great Britain it may be decided to say no. But if yjs la to be answered on behalf of India, we shall be

New York, Oct. 2.-Prof. A. S.Choah
of the Calcutta university, a native of
East India, sots forth in an article on-
titled "India's Cause for Silver," in
tho October number of the North
American Roviow, the reasons why the
pooplo of India desire the reopening of
the Indian mints. Prof. Ghosh ar
raigns the British government for
blocking the way for an international
agreement for tbe remonetization of
silver, saying that in closing the In
dian mints it has confiscated one-half
of the wealth of the people in the Indian empire. He expressed the opinion that England may be forced out of
regard to her own iuterests to change
her course, and he concludes:
"If, however, notwithstanding every
entreaty, she proves false to her own
and the world's interest, then she may
learn to her cost that other nations can
act without her and may see the very
thing come to pass in retribution
which she so long opposed.   If the still
continues to block the way, if Senator
Wolcott's mission fails, and the Indian
mints remain unopened, the last hope
of India must remain in Mr. Bryan. If,
three years hence, his efforts are
crowned with success, which necossarily
they must be if nothing is done meanwhile to solve the great question, ho
will, perhaps, find the gold worshippers of Europe, headed by England,
waiting in trepidation in the antechamber to entreat an international
agreement. That will bo the hour of
his triumph and in the anticipation of
it the three hundred millions of India
will wish him God-speed, with tho full
power of their stricken hearts."
A I'lcthoru uf Gold.
New York, Oct. 2.���The plethora of
gold in the banks and the treasury and
the scarcity of greenbacks is causing
the banks somo difficulty in making
their payments at the clearing house in
bills and may cause most of them ln a
short while to return to the practice of
years ago and settle their debt balance
in gold. The first movement in that
direction was made when the National
Park Bank paid its entire debit balance of J586.000 in gold. Two other
banks have also paid gold in settlement of the debit balances. It is considered likely that other banks will
havo to follow suit shortly, .lust tit
present the banks mostly prefer to receive bills rather than gold in payment
of their credit balances. Gold is paid
into the clearing Iioubo in the shapo of
clearing house gold certificates, which
is the most convenient form of payment, as it does not involve any counting or so much handling of so much

Eondon. Oct. II.���-The Times published a letter this morning signed by
Lord Oldenhain and Henry Riversdale
Grenfoll, in which the writers express
the opinion that the time has passed
for academical discussion of the currency question, which has become one
of practical polities.
Recalling the resolution adopted in
parliament after Mr. Balfour's speech
during tiie debate on March 17, 189(1,
and the promise of Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach of the same date that the government would do its utmost to secure, by international agreement, a
stable par exchange between gold and
silvor, while preserving the gold standard, tho writers say:
"The leaders of the bimetallic movement in London have recommended tho
acceptance of the Hicks-Beach com-;
promise. If negotiations are successful there will be no further bimetallic
discussion, for although we believe the
soundest and wisest course would bo
for Great Britain to co-operate with
other nations and open hor mints to
both metals, wo should be glad to see
the compromise effected. It would
have the Important and ' desirable result of restoring par exchange between
the gold-using and silver-using countries."
Tho letter predicts that unless tills
compromise is carried out, agitation
will be continued on the basis of reopening the mints to the free coinage
of both metals, but it expresses the belief that the great commercial nations
an)so alive to the dangers that would
folioj^failure in the negotiations that
tho compromise will be accepted.
Mr. Grenfell, it is noted, joined with
Loril Oldenhain in the publication last

both sides of the question.

Tho next mining excitement is likely to be on the Peace river in Athabasca and northeastern British Columbia.
Mining has been carried on thero in a
slow way for years, but discoveries
made the past summer leave no room
to doubt that an immense amount of
gold will be taken out of the Peace river and its tributaries during the next
few years. Men who aro now taking
out gold in large quantities are not trying to create a boom but are quietly
soriding for friends to come into the
country and secure claims, says the
Calgary Herald.
A young man named Johnson recently came down from Peace river with
his partner, bringing $18,000 in gold
dust. A third partner was left at the
diggings. The two mon have come
south to purchase supplies for the
winter. The money brought out was
placed in a Vancouver bank. Part of
it was drawn out for the purpose of
purchasing supplies, which were at
once shipped to Edmonton, N. W. T.,
whence thoy were to be sent to the
mines by large pack trains.
Tho #18,000 brought out had boon
cleaned up by the three men in three
months. They went to Peace river
oarly in the spring.and Johnson started
out in July. Johnson said all the minors of Poace river were making big
money with the crudest 'appliances.
Up \fO the time ho left only pans and 13
foot sbjioeB had been used. Most of
the miners were not coming out this
fall,because it was possible u> purchase
supplies at grading posts of the Hudson
Bay (Company near the mouth of Peaco
It is reported that more than 200 mon
are placor mining along Peace rivor at
the present time, and they are experiencing satisfactory results from their
The Poace river country is reached
most easily from Edmonton, 19i miles
north of Calgary on the Canadian Pacific railroad. Fort Chippewyan, on
Athabasca lake, at the mouth of Peace
rivor, is reached by taking a stage
from Edmonton to Athabasca Landing,
!Hl miles, and thence down Athabasca
river and lake by boat. Chippewyan is
4iij miles from, Edmonton.
Steamboats can ascend Peace rivor
for a considerable distance and small
boats can go up nearly its entire
length. A number of its tributaries,
including Loon and Deer rivers, aro as
rich as the main stream.
Peace river rises In fhe eastern
slopes ol the Rocky mountains, a littlo
north of the center of British Columbia. In the northern continuation of
the same mountains rise the Pelly,
Stewart and other important gold hearing tributaries of the Yukon. Thero
is this important difference, that Peaco
river rises in the eastern slope of tho
mountains, while the Yukon's tributaries rise on the wrest Bide. Along
Peaco river north are the Roirideor or
Cariboo mountains, which are believed
to lie rich in gold-bearing quartz.
. The hardy miners who played prominent parts in the Cariboo excitemont
of 80 yean ago explored the country to
the north and east of the headwaters of
tho Eraser with \\>vy satisfactory results, and although the output of gold
from the Peace river and its tributaries has fallen off somewhat in recent
years, the auriforous deposits there aro
known to be rich and extensive. It is
expected that next spring will see a
great influx of miners to that section.

Remarkable Success of Joseph I.ndne
���Owns Land of Untold Value���One
of Twenty Who Went Ont Penniless
and Found Millions at Their Feet.
A Fortune in One Year.
Joseph Ladue, the founder of Dawson City, ln the Klondyke gold region,
has returned to his former home at
Schuyler Falls, New York. He returns
to civilization from bleak Alaska to
claim for his bride the woman whose
parents frowned upon  his suit yenrs
ago. Mr. Ladue left home In 1KSU for
the Northwest At that time be was
25 years old. When the gold fever
broke out iu a mild form two years ngo
he went to Alaska, after a failure in
the Black Hills, and found enough to
tell him of greater things Inter on. He
returned to his home, but later went
hack to Alaska, took tip a claim ln the
very henrt of the country, paid for a
is no shnrp line drawn between that
which ls sold and that which belongs to
the United States, aud n man Is free to
hunt where he will. For your own con)-
fort, however, It Is well to huve some
definite arrangement mnde with the
nearest authorities, so ns to avoid trouble in case of a rich (Ind.
Another way to reach the gold fields
Is by the overland route. Mnny journey
this way In wagons, ns they went to
"Pike's Peak or Bust" years ago. The
route begins at Seattle and follows the
coast north past Sitkn, past Juneau and
through the Ohilcoe pass, and so north
through the gold fields to Dawson. The
"finds" here are rich, and when Klondyke Is reached, on the other side of
Dawson, n mnn finds himself ln the
very middle of the gold country, The
distance to be traversed Is great and
the journey Is a long, hard one, but,
notwithstanding Ihls, thousands are
struggling Alaska-wards.
It cost Ladue nothing to become a
Barnato. But those who want to follow ln his footsteps will need something
like $1,0110 In money. The country Is
more thickly populated uow and prices

"Tlio Father of the Yuknn.'
certain (junntlty of laud which wns
then for sale ut a very low figure, and
starled ln to look for gold.
Ills first Hud brought settlers there
by the dozeu. "Dawsou" the place was
called, and as the owner sold off small
portions of the land his fame grew and
spread. He uow owns Dawson, Inning
sold but little, and Is so many times a
millionaire that his wealth cannot lie
estimated. He Is the Harmito of Alaska, the man who struck It' rich, and
knowing a good thing when he saw it,
held on to It. It Is only another tale of
South African luck, but much hearer
home���enviously near.
At present, If you wnnt to get to Alaska and become a Barnato, there are
two ways of going. One ls by sen and
the other Is overland. If you take the
sea route you can start by steamship
from Seattle, aud. crossing the (itilf of
Alaska, touch first nt Unalaska, passing
through the Aleutian Islands. From
there the route lies directly north, gel-
ting colder nud colder every minute.
Here you will need all the Arctic wraps
you have brought with you. The ship's
fare will be worm, nourishing food-
cereals, chocolate, meats and spices.
But for all that you will need fur overcoats, fur hoods, blanket wraps, woolen
mittens nud big, warm, fur-ilned bags
In which to sleep. For one going from
a very warm city luto this region the
change Is so grent and so sudden that
there Is sure to be grent suffering, and
many of the would-be Baruatos turn
'ihe steamship stops nt St. Michael's;
nnd here, within sight of Bering sen,
almost within hailing distance of the
Bering strait, you leave the steamship
and start Inland to search for gold.
The Baruatos hnve nearly all followed the Yukon.   It lends into Kloudyke,
and one of Its tributaries Is the Klondyke River. Dawson, Joseph Ladue
Bn run Id's town, is on the Yukon; and
Circle City, another rich spot, lies on
Its banks. Land ls for sale here very
cheap. Or you can do ns many prospectors hnve done���start In hunting for
gold without making too many Inquiries.   The ilud is so sudden that there
have gone up, whereas they used to be
next to nothing. At Circle City you
must now pay $40 for n fur coat when
you used to get one for $5. And Hour,
sugar and spices, the absolute necessities, have advanced BO per cent. The
luxuries���tea, coffee, eggs and butter-
are bringing fancy prices, so that u man
now needs ten times the sum required
a year ago for traveling through the
settlements of Alaska.
It Is certainly true thnt better "finds"
nre being made In American territory
than In British Columbia. Four huu-
dred  miles southeast of Dawson,  on
ped from every seaport ami the tons ot
ore that are being sent down from St.
Michael's and south from .litneau. In
one day tliere came advices from St.
Michael's that 11,400,000 worth of gold
dust would be shipped by the Wells-
Fargo south, nnd that W68,000 In dust
was awaiting transportation. In one
day there come down on the I'uget
Sound steamship $200,000 iu Alaska
Ladue was one of the lirst to strike
the Yukon region, rich In gold. He settled Dawson City and built a sawmill.
However, he found It difficult to get
men to work for him at $1.1 a day. He
hus made a fortune out of the mines
nnd will return to Duwsofi in the spring
with his wife.
Nelson's Fumous Order.
Captain Alfred T. Malum contributes
to the Century nn article on "Nelson
nt Trafalgar," Concerning Nelson's famous order, Captain Mtihan says; After returning to tbe deck, Nelson nsked
Blackwood whether he did not think
another signal wns needed. The captain replied thnt he thought every one
understood perfectly what was expected of him. After musing u while, Nelson said, "Suppose we telegraph that
'Nelson expects every man to do his
duty.'" The officer to whom the remark was mnde suggested whether it
would not rend better, "Knglaiid expects." In the fleet, or, for tiie matter
of that, to the country, the Change sig-
the Pelll river, there hns beeu a "find"
locnted thnt ls richer than any yet discovered. Prospectors say that as soon
as attention Is called towards the American side of the gold field line nnd working upon It becomes general there will
be gold mined there ln greater quantities than hns ever been found on the
British side of the Kloudyke fields.
The way to travel to Alaska Is In pnr-
tles of fcur. These can easily be oc-
coramoduted in one room, and can
travel In one small conveyance.' One
of the party should be a practical chemist, or understand the compiling of
drugs, nnd one should be able to sew.
A woman ls of the utmost assistance,
but few of the sex hnve ventured out.
In the baggage which the four carry
should be pieces of tanned skins, shoe
leather, flannel and wool, everything
for repnlrlng the AlnRkan wearing apparel. One of the number should be
able to cook and the fourth should understand the art of putting up a quick
shelter. All should be willing and ready
to share and share alike ln hardship.
nltted little, for no two names were
ever more closely Identified than those
of England and Nelson; but the latter
welcomed It engerly, nnd at 11(80 the
signal which hns achieved world-wide
celebrity flew from the Victory's mnst-
hend, nnd wns received with a shout
throughout the fleet.

Furniture Clearance Sale.
D. McArthur & Co. have decided to
close out their Kaslo store and will
hereafter transact thoir Slocan trade
from the head house at Nolson. The
firm conclude that it would pay better
to soil out at cost than to ship
back to Nelson and will consequently push sales here as long as tho
stock lasts. This is a lirst class chance
for bargains in furniture.
AK..S, Station agent hns been appointed at McGuigan. A telegraph office will bo put in as soon as tho present pressure of business is relieved by
the Slocan road lino.
The New Denver Ledge says that
ono of the prominent mines in the Slocan will enter suit against a United
States smelter to recover the amount
of duty charged them on load. The
mine owners claim that the smeltor
did not pay" the duty as tho oro was
smelted in bond and shipped out of the
country. Tbe. refusal of tho smelter
people to show a receipt from the government for duty paid on tho lead is
tho cause of the suit being entored.
Constable Mountain has received a
letter from Sheriff Smith, who took
Taylor from Sandon to be tried for

tho benefit of the doubt, and not wishing to do him an injury. He turned
him looso with his best wishes.
A rich strike of high grade ore was
made recently on the Surprise mine.
In following tho vein on tbe north drift

A latter has been received from J.W.
Brechtol, originator of tho fake cholera scare, in which ho disclaims responsibility. He states that in a letter
to his wife at Tacoma, he mentioned
that there was fever In Slocan City
and that some doats had occured. The
Tacoma correspondent whom she met
afterward inquired about the health of
the people of Sandon, and sho meroly
replied according to tho Information
from hor husband's letter. This was
all that tho sensational dispatch to the
Examiner was built upon.
James Sheeran and his partner, Dan
O'Ray, have a contract of hauling tho
material for the new tramway for the
Payne mine. The tramway will be
nearly a mile aud a half In length and
have three tracks. Two six mule teams,
driven with a jerk lino, are doing the
work, says the Sandon Mining Review.
Mr. Sheeran says that four teams are
now engaged in hauling ore from tho
mine down to the railway, and thut
the output of tho mine at present Is 70
tons per day. Eighty men are at work
on the tramway.
Sixty tons of ore were shipped by
the Reco over the C. P. R. last week,
and more cars are being loaded. In a
few days the Star will be shipping
again as usual.

Somethinn About the Pioneer Days of
Tho discovery of mineral in the Slocan country by Eli Carpenter in 1801
was quickly followed by ihe splendid
finds made and located by J. L. Seaton,
W. F. and J. .1. Hennessey, I. 0. Mc-
(iuignn and F. W. Flint. The "Noble
Five" brought the country to its feet.
For the moment Toad mountain, Ainsworth and the Hondryx camp were forgotten. Every one poured into tho
"Silvery Slocan." There wero no roads
loading into thotaew district, but trails
wore quickly pushed in over the three
avallablo pusses: from Nakusp on tho
North, Kaslo on the east and up the
valley of tho Slocan river from the
south. Nelson might probably have
served her own interests best, if she
had forced a way up tho Yuill creek,
but she was busy with hor own allairs
or was content with the Sloean river
trail. These throe trails are now the
routes uf railways, tho last to be made
being the one up tho Slocan river, the
easiest of tho lot. But the merchants
of Nelson were not slow to avail them-
selvos of the new market opened for
their goods, and R. E. Lemon established a branch store at Three Forks,
which was then the central point of the
Slocan. Thc government laid out a
town on an extensive flat at the mouth
of Carpenter creek and called it New
Denver. But, the eager crowd, only
happy at the very mouth of the mine,
has squeezed itself into Sandon. In
spite of her distance from the mines,
Nelson, thanks to the energy of her
merchants, benefitted largely by tlie
newly opened district, and was proportional}' injured by the '-slump" In
silver in 1803.
For a time the fall in the price of
her staple commodity almost paralyzed
Kootenay, but her people were not of
the sort to be, knocked out at one blow.
They soon recovered and again went to
work with a will. It is pleasant here to
be able to record of those tn this uphill
claim, British und Americans worked
sido by side, showing Indeed that thoy
are members of tho samo family and
inheritors of the pluck and endurance
which have for centuries been the
characteristic of the parent race.���

Advertising Is ��n Kxtict Science.
The British Columbia News grasps
tho problem of newspaper advertising
as a skilled electrician grasps a live
wire. Advertising, however, unllko
electricity, is a certain known force,
working in a certain known manner.
Like electricity, if properly handled,
its effects aro marvelous: trilled or ex��
perlmented with by inexperienced persons, it is always exponsive and often
dangerous. The whole secret of success iu businoss ls in knowing how to
properly employ this potent force���advertising. If you want to be Its master
and not its victim; if you want to get
all of the benefit and none of the disaster, possible from the wonderful power of advertising, use the columns of
the British Columbia News.

The King of Slam, who hns been making an extensive tour of America and
Kurope. In order to more thoroughly familiarize himself with the languages,
customs nnd institutions of the great
nations of the world, is an absolute
ruler In his own country, nnd has
wielded his autocratic powers to the
benefit of his people.
King Cbulalongkorn's personality,
Intelligence and methods of life do the
Utmost violence lo the traditional notions of what an Oriental potentate is
and should be. The historical portrait
of the kitiR, decked out lu headgear
tiuii resembles n Chinese pagoda, is all
wrong. Be wears no Chinese pagoda,
but a modern silk hat, which becomes
him as well as any other gentleman.
To Oriental silks nnd    brocades   nnd
fantastic shoes with  long  turned-up
toes, and all sorts of sashes nnd bands
and diamonds uml collars of gold, he
prefers a modern gentleman's   frock
coat, waistcoat, trousers, linen collar
and four-in-hand tie. And be dresses
his sons ln the Same sensible sort   of
This latest photograph of the king
was taken not long ago at Geneva by
the well-known artist I'ricanl. It shows
his majesty seated, with the crown
prince standing at the right hand and
the prince's younger brother at the left.
There Is nothing Oriental In the portrait! except the features of the sitters. Cbulalongkorn's manly and Intelligent feaures are a tine Index to his
Character. One would hardly look for
monstrous cruelty or black ljjnorniice
iu a man of his appearance, and none
Is found. It Is all the more surprising,
for Ohulalongkorn was not born and
reared lu an environment out of which
less homage were accustomed to grovel
at the feet of royalty. All this disgusted the young nnd progressive king. lie
bade his ministers, his friends nnd his
visitors to arise, walk upon their feet
and shake hands with hliu like men.
The conservative (I. e. the groveling)
party opposed this reform, but Cliula-
longkorn allowed them to see that he
was not to be trilled with and, willy-
nilly, the grovelers were compelled to
act like human beings.
Ills majesty Is a firm believer In Buddhism, the ancient religion of his race
and of his fathers, nnd be ls nn adept
in its Intricate and refined subtleties.
But he Is far more liberal ln his Ideas
of toleration than most European rulers, nnd perfect religious liberty,
thnnks to him, prevails ln Slam to-day.
Iu him the Christians especially hnve
found a friend und protector. He no
sooner became master of the government than lie decreed that the Christians should not be Interfered with In
their work or worship, aud he has seen
that this law has been enforced. To a
man so far advanced as to Insist upon
religious liberty liumnii slavery was by
no means a pleasant matter, and the
king set to work to reform his people In
this respect. He has practically abolished slavery In Slam. He set to work,
too, to reform taxation, and he greatly
diminished all internal tuxes thut were
burdensome or unnecessary. These reforms were but the beginning of his
work. lie had an ambition to lift his
country out of the depths of degradation and Ignorance in which he found
It. He had a mighty task before hliu,
hut he had mighty power, and he has
given au excellent account of It to the
The reign of Ohulalongkorn has been
the most peaceful and prosperous In the
history of Slam. He gave new life to
the fettered Industries of the country
by cutting uew canals for purposes of
Irrigation and distribution, he built
railroads, steam and electric, in many
parts of his domain, constructed telegraph lines that opened up communication with the western world and with
the Chinese Empire, Improved the const
with lighthouses and harbor signals,
improved the big rivers of the country,
thus adding largely to the facilities of
Commerce, and instituted numberless
other reforms connected with the commercial activities of the people.
Iu moral reform the king has been no
less active. How he has accomplished
so much In so short a time ls Indeed a
wonder. Among other radical chances
he has mnde Is the Introduction of an
entirely new code of laws and a judicial system modeled after the best
Western fashion. He has instituted n
line system ��f public Instruction, built
hospitals, and has even gone so far as
to foutld and open an art museum that
compares favorably with many Institutions of Its kind In Europe and America, Indeed, tliere Is nothing In the
history of the world that can compare
with the tremendous changes from a
purely barbarous���not to say savage���
one would expect to see arise a product such as be ls. When, ln 1873, he
came Into the full possession of his
kingly power���for there wns a regency
ln Slam during the King's boyhood-
he proceeded to turn the country Inside out. He aboi'sbed-, by decree,
many of the barbarous customs of the
people, and under his wise and enlightened and liberal rule Slam became conscious of the great blessings of modern
civilization. The King had always a
great admiration for Occidental manners and Ideas and the extravagant hyperbole and nauseating adulation of
the Orient disgusted him. Before he
ascended the throne the Siamese monarch was regarded as seml-dlvlne.
Subjects, when saluting the king, were
required to prostrate themselves on all
fours, and to emphasize their bound-
system to a regime of civilization which
Ohulalongkorn has accomplished.
Why did not the king follow ln the
flteps of his predecessors ? The answer
Is simple. In his youth he wns n diligent student. He learned to speak and
read French and English and he was
supplied with books, magazines and
newspapers from Europe and America.
This literature told him what the Western world was like. The contrast between that and what he saw around
him was enough to Are him with ambition to lift up his people and his country. He turned to the West for light
and the result has amazed those Americans nnd Europeans who know what
has beeu done In Slam of late years.
As a prince be'was tutored by an American gentleman, Mr. Chandler, who was
delighted with the rapid progress his
pnpll made. When the prince became
king In 1808 he continued his studies
and nursed his ambitions, and when,
ln 1873, he became absolute In power
he begnn to turn into realities thc dreams
of his boyhood and his youth. He surrounded himself with a number of Europeans and Amerlcanjs and with their
aid and advice reorganized the army
and the navy and established a modern
police system In Bangkok. He has by
his precept nnd example encouraged
his people In the practice of temperance, truthfulness, Industry aud humanity.
This real reformer is n little man, just
45 years old, and as full of restless energy as his liquid, black eyes are full
of geutleness. Without bis official
crown, which he seldonf cares to use,
he measures 5 feet 4 Inches In height.
His color ls that indescribable color of
the Orient that Is called orange for
want of a better descriptive word. He
has a large harem, but only one wife.
The succession of primogeniture wus
not a law of Slam until he made It so.
Tliere Is but one woman In the kingdom that can be culled "her majesty."
The eldest son of this woman shall be
crown prince, according to Chulnlong-
korn's decree. His present queen Is his
second wife, nnd the present crown
prince is the eldest son of the present
{'liulalongkorn ascended the throne in
187,'t, but not until about ten years later,
nt the death of the regent during tlm
king's minority, did behave an altogether free hand ln government. He has advanced agriculture, increased the exports from his country, granted charters to companies that have laid steam
and electric railways, built a State railroad, cut canals, Improved the roads in
nil parts of his domain, and caused Justice to be Impartially and speedily administered.
The favorite palace of the king stands
on nn Island In the river Menam. He
has several other palaces, all of great
magnificence, but the greatest of all Is
the royal palace In Bangkok, the capital. Part of the court yard of the temple within the grounds of this palace Is
shown lu accompanying picture, On
the left are seen, ln perspective, three
gateways opening Into the space occupied by the principal building, In which
Is enshrined the so-called Emerald
Buddha of Slam. At each of the gateways stand two gigantic figures of the
mythical demons known to the Siamese
under the inline of "Yuek," nnd corresponding pretty closely to the djlnii or
genii of the "Arabian Nights." A few
small statues of gray marble, carved
by Siamese artists In Imitation of European sculpture, stand near, forming Incongruous features In an otherwise
typically Oriental scene. Behind, and
to the right. Is seen the priichadee, a
huge conical mass of brick and mortar, covered with glass tiles gilded on
the Inner surface, and so maintaining
their brilliancy with no other aid than
nn occasional washing. This grent palace at Bangkok, or rather group of
structures, Is one of the sights of the
East. Tbe buildings were put in hand
early In this century, nnd although one
Siamese sovereign after another added
to them, It wns reserved for the present king to complete them.
Slam occupies a territory nbout the
size of (Jermany. That Its area has not
been cut down to half that size ls uo
fault of the sly statesmen of France
ond England, who have been grabbing
Ihe king's land ou either side under the
pretense of "protecting" him. These
two States were nbout to absorb all of
Slam except a small parcel of land not
much more than enough for a royal
garden when Chulnlotigkorn showed
them that he could be a diplomat us
well as a patriot Ho "played" one power against the other, und thus stopped
further encroachments. There ls now
no longer nny danger that the land
grabbers will hurt him. ln the navy of
twenty-two powerful ships he has created and In his reorganized army he has
furnished himself witli n protection
that needs no Increase from without.

Address, KASLO, B. C. "Sweetnnsa and Light."
Prof. Skeat, who has written mere
than fifty books on etymology and
kindred subjects, lias acquired the habit of delving after the roots, Instead
of enjoying the bloom and fruit of
literature. In his latest book, "A Student's Pastime," he says of Dean
Swift's famous phrase, "Sweetness
and light," that it "Is a meaningless
expression, unless we know the context." He then explains, what all
readers know, that Swift referred to
bees, and wrote thnt they till their
"hives with honey and wax, thus furnishing mankind with the two noblest
of things, which are sweetness and
light." Whatever Swift may have
meant by the phrase, It no longer, ou
the Upia of any thinker, refers to the
"sweetness of the honey iu the honeycomb and to the "light" of a taper.
Swift shows that he meant more than
this by using the words "the two
noblest of things." But, the Dean
aside, the phrase "sweetness and
"light" now belongs to Matthew Arnold, who first used It to express tbe two
greatest qualities of mind and soul.
It has been said that he who quotes
a thought ls next ln merit to him who
conceived It; but he who fashions a
phrase Is surely not so praiseworthy
as he who ennobles It by a higher use.
The word senteuce In which Francis 1.
told his mother that "everything Is
lost except honor und life, which are
saved," has been made sublime by some
thinker who compressed the thought
Into "all ls lost save honor." Matthew
Arnold, rising above the bees, either
of Furness Fells or of Hybla, exalted
Swift's words, and they now mean,
wherever English Is spoken or read,
tlie noble sweetness of temper and the
luminous and Illuminating power of
soul. We no longer quote Swift; we
quote Arnold.
��i me coronation of ytiecn Elizabeth,
In 1558, the roads lu the neighborhood
of Ivondon were so bad that the Queen's
coach twice stuck In the mud on the
way to Westminster nnd the Queen
was compelled to ulight while the vehicle was pried out of the ruts by the
attendants. During the remainder of
the royal procession, half a dozen laborers with polet formed a not particularly Imposing but very necessary
part of the cortege.
The Roman Empire had a system of
paved roads, radiating from Home In
every direction, to the utmost limits of
Roman territory. One greet road led
across thc Alps Into Gaul, to a point
near Calais, nnd beginning again In
Britain It ran directly north to the
wall of Severns; another down the Valley of the Danube, nnd from Constantinople east, through Syria nnd Palestine, to tho Euphrates. Still another
rnn west, along the sea coast Into
Spain, while Africa bad Its own system.
The Roman ronds were built on the
Telford plan, with a substratum of
heavy blocks of the stone most rtbiind-
ant ln thc neighborhood, covered with
a layer of smaller stones or gravel.
They were highest lu the middle, with
a trench on each side to carry off the
water, arid no trees or shrubs were allowed to grow within 1(H) paces on
either hand. The population of the districts through which these highways
passed were required to keep them In
order and to cut down weeds nnd
shrubbery within the proscribed distance.

The   Famous   Tim.    Wit    Who   Has
Made Two Continents Laugh.
Col. Thomas P. Ochiltree, the famous
Texas wit and statesman, became a national character a few years ago when
he came to Congress as a Representative from Texas. He was conspicuous
to look upon, aud he rarely said anything that was not conspicuous. He
made friends, and he wns so good-natured to his enemies nnd so quick with
his wit that the men who were opposed
to him were anxious to get over their
tilts. He wns pointed out on the floor
of the House as the first native Congressman from his State. It was also
related that his district was wider aud
longer thnn many of the stntes of Europe, reaching over a territory of twenty-seven counties, nnd running from
the Gulf to Eagle Pass, on the Rio
Grande. This area comprised 37,(100
square miles. Ochiltree was practically the king of It.
Ochiltree went to the top of cnpltnl
favoritism at a single bound. He was
a prince of story-tellers. The beauty
of his humor wus that It hit uo one so
hnrd ns It hit himself. He rarely appeared upon the floor of the Forty-
eighth Congress thnt lie, did not put
the House Into a furore of laughter.
The country members used to declare
that he was more fun than the minstrels. Ills bills and appropriations
were Jested through. He called himself the "Red-headed Ranger from
Texus," and the title was enough to
get him n hearing before the busiest
committee. It wns his custom to send
In word to nn Important session of n
close-mouthed and dignified committee
that the "Red-headed Hunger from
Texas" had n few remarks he would

of good laughs-and It Is a part of leg-
| Illative tradition that the Colonel's stories have done for hliu what plain, unvarnished nnd prosaic logic failed to do
for others.
Judge Wliyam B. Ochiltree, a lawyer of great repute In the Bouth, was
determined that young Tom should be
brought up In the strait and narrow
path. He thought his son would be a
quiet man, of gentle habits, and thereupon plnced him under the care and tutelage of two Catholic priests. The
priest, labored In Nacogdoches parish,
Where the boy wns Ihu-u. nud they
tried Industriously to keep their pupil
In lines of thought that might possibly
lake him Into the clergy. The lad stood
ii for a lime, and at the age of IB suddenly took the matter Into his owu
hands.. He wanted to fight Indians.
Tlu> priests were powerless, and, with
a great denl of shrewd plnnnliig, young
Tom made an enlistment as a private
In the Texas Rangers, stnrtlng west for
the scnlps of the Apaches and Co-
nianches In 1854. A year knocked all
the romance out of this boyish ambition, and he was willing to come home
and buckle down to his books. He always    had    some outside plan In his
j head, and while he wns still under his
majority In yenrs he wns editor of a
paper aud had been sent as a delegate
to the conventions in Charleston and
Baltimore. He studied law and wns
barely out of his teens when his father
took him Into his office ns a partner.
The father went away from town one
day, nnd while he wns goue the boy
hnd the sign changed. Snn Antonio
awakened the next morning to laugh
for years at the strnuge name of the
firm ��� "Thomas P, Ochiltree aud
Father, Attorneys." The grown man
wus no less original than the hoy had
been, and his wit Increased as the
years brought the stubby, fat youngster Into a rotund, brond-glrthed statesman.
Ochiltree fought his way to a colonelcy ln the Confederate army. After
the war he told tho people of Texas,
through his Galveston paper, "to stop
crying nnd get solace ln work." His
ability was marked enough to attract
the attention of President Grant, and
Grant made him the marshal for Texas. He and the President became great
friends. It ls said that Grant delighted lu seeing no one more than he did
ln seeing Tom Ochiltree.
Texas owes as much to Ochiltree as
It does to any other man that ever
came from the State. He has been
untiring ln his efforts to keep the
State before the public. He did so
much in this respect with the papers
that he edited he was at one time sent
to Europe at; emigrant commissioner
for Texas. This gave him opportunity
for many trips abroad, and he became
us fluent ln the continental languages
as in English. He actually became a
feature ln the London papers, aud the
old Journals used to advertise Interviews with him as tlie New York papers now advertise their weekly grist
of Sunday matter.
Col. Ochiltree has a reputntion for
knowing more nbout good things to
ent, for having eaten more good things,
for having helped more people to eat
the best thiugs than any other living
mail ln this country. He ls also no
second on the proposition of beverages.
The good taste lu eating aud drinking
was uatural for hlra, and he declares
he protested loudly nnd Industriously
because the uurse Insisted he should
have nothing but milk dining his very
early life. He likes the good things of
life no more thnn he does the bright
meu lu life. Where he ls there Is a
certain center of keen wit nnd ringing
stories. He ls versatile In his eating,
as well ns lu his mind. He stands the

On the principle that a living dog Is
better than n dead lion, a bell that Is
whole should be better thnn one that ls
cracked, even though the latter be the
bigger of the two. For some time past
there hns been a sort of dead-heat between the two biggest bells ln the
world, the one at the Cathedral lu Moscow, nud the other at the unfinished
pagoda of Meugoon, a little north of
Mamlnluy. If the former was the bigger ot the two. It was cracked, and
therefore useless ns a bell, while the
latter, though whole, hnd dragged Its
supports down till It rested on the

Now, however, It hus been reswung,

A Good   I, oaila Governor.
Governor Hastings, of Pennsylvania,
In his message to the legislature, delivered Jan. 5th, said ln part:
"It appears that we hnve about 800,-
COO miles of public roads In the various
townships of the Commonwealth, not
Including turnpike ronds nnd those ln
the cities nnd boroughs, nnd, although
almost four million dollars have been
expended each year for their Improvement, they are ln a most unsatisfactory
condition. This great sum, averaging
about $48.73 per mile, should, If laid
out with Intelligence and economy,
during the past fifteen years have made
every public thoroughfare equal to our
best turnpike roads."
After stating that the road laws nre
too numerous and too local, and ndvo-
cnting one or two general laws, he
adds: "Another defect Is tho short
term for which supervisors are elected. In many cases but a single year,
thus breaking up any plnns that Intelligent  supervisors   may   endeavor   to
j carry out nnd giving a sense of lusecur-
| Ity In the position."
The Governor ndvocates three super-
! visors to lie elected for three years, one
going out of office each year. Also that
oue-half the rond tnx be paid ln money,
nnd that every mile of the road system be under the care of individuals
whose dally duty should be to see that
the ronds are ln good condition and repairs mnde when needed. "If these
suggestions were carried out, the way
would lie open for the State to grant
such aid from time to time as might be
necessary In relieving the burden uow
wholly borne by the rural people."

In connection with the recent death
of Hlomlln, the greatest of funambulists. It Ih recalled tlint President Lincoln once made use of hi in for one of ills
characteristically apt illustrations. To
ii fiiult-nmllng delegation that visited
him, Mr. Lincoln said:
Gentlemen, suppose all the property j
you were worth was ln gold, and you
hnd put It Into the hands of Hloudln to
carry across Niagara Kails on a rope;
would you shake the cable, or keep
shouting out to him, "Hloudln, stand
up a little stralghter! Hlomlln. stoop
a little more; go n little faster; lean
more to the south?" No, you would
hold your breath, as well as your
tongue, and keep your bauds off until

Tbe Halys will Take Her Kun tn Bonner's rerry
and Arycnta.
The steamor Ainsworth has stopped
her regular Bonner's Ferry run for the
season and now lies tied up at the rail-
wharf. Captain Kane of the steamer
Halys, tfor a short time called the
Queen, announces that ho will take the
Alnsworth's run and make the regular
trips formerly made by hor. Tho
Halys Ib so small a boat that tho expense of fuel, etc. for tho trip is light.
On the recent visit of Customs Inspector Clute, It was learned that a steamer's name could not be changed without so much formality, that Capt.
Kane decided to let tho old name Halys
stand as it was before she was changed
from an American to a Canadian bottom. She was last week fitted with a
new whee! and shaft. The Halys will
aUo make a weekly run to Argonta.
Her first trip was made last Monday.

The News is gratified to call tho attention of its readers in this issue to
the elegantly and tastefully equipped
furniture and crockery store of .1. .1.
Sehl of this city. There Is nothing
superior to it, and we doubt if an equal
can be found for It In the province.
Mr. Sehl is an energetic and enterprising business man and lives up to his
motto that "Nothing is too good for
Kaslo." At the same time, his stock
is so large that it includes, tho plainer
Styles of furttlture at lower prices. In
fact all his prices aro very reasonable.
It is pleasant to know that his business
has so increased that he has established
a branch store at Nelson. Wo can unqualifiedly recommend all of our readers to give him a call.
