ONE MONTH OLD
Brooklyn  is  an   Example   of
Western Enterprise.
IS WITHOUT A PARALLEL
Cold Storage, Wholesale Meat Markets and General Merchandise
Quarters Being Establlshed--
Many New Hotels Being Built.
Brooklyn, the banner town of
Arrow lake, continues to grow.
There seems to be no abatement in
the excitement which has bean
manifest since the first tree was
felled.
Huge loads of merchandise of all
descriptions continue to arrive by
steamers and are distributed among
the various camps. Several carloads of powder, condensed milk,
canned fruit and meats are coming
into the company's stores. Carts
are being distributed to the various
contractors and the steamers have
brought in a number of horses to
be used as cart horses and pack
animals. The smoke from the clearings on the right of way sometimes
darkens the sky by its intensity, and
a belt of white rock can be seen
where the mountain side is left clear
and ready for those who will come
after with drills and picks. The
faint sounds of blasting can be
heard from the lower end of the
line when the wind is favorable.
Men are sent out on the line as
rapidly as they apply for work and
sub-contractors are pushing the
work as rapidly as possible.
Brooklyn'* Ho.pltal.
The large and commodious hospital on the hill in the rear of the
camp, on the banks of the little
mountain stream, overlooking the
broad expanse of lake front, is almost complete, and Dr. Ewing is in
possession. It will be furnished
with the latest improved cots and
other appliances. The building is
24x50, divided into three rooms, an
office, a working room and a sick
room. In the rear a kitchen will
be built for the convenience of those
who are so unfortunate as to come
under the "hospital roof."
The big company wharf is near-
ing completion and in a few days
the carpenters will disappear and
with them their Chinese cook. A
large sign is posted, "No Chinamen
need land," and it is the intention
of the citizens to give the laboring
white man a chance to earn several
big round dollars.
The Motrin.
The several hotels, which are or
have been under construction for
the past few weeks, are almost
completed and are furnishing meals
and lodgings for the many who
make application. The Hotel Anderson has opened its dining room
and has been very well patronized,
as the accommodations so far in
this line have been exceedingly
limited. There are several others
almost ready to throw open their
door. The Crown Point has been
granted a license. The dining room
has been open almost two weeks.
I'old storage.
The Calgary Brewing cohipany
have built a large cold storage
cellar and are erecting a warehouse
for their goods, and George Wil-
liard   will  establish   a   wholesale
liquor house immediately. A number of stores and shops are under
course of construction, and there
will be several large stocks of
general merchandise for purchasers
to select from.
WltoleMule ftlpitl.
The wholesale house of P. Burns
has  been  established  and   several
loads of cattle have  been   run into
the corrals in the edge of the city.
ill. h mineral..
One feature which is attracting
much attention and causing considerable comment is the line ores
that are coming in from the surrounding hills, in the immediate
vicinity of Brooklyn. Several
samples have been assayed with
good results and the property has
been staked. J. R. Stussi, from
Rossland, is working the Mountain
Chief. He expresses the opinion he
has a paying property The assays
from his samples are exceptionally
fine, and the indications are favorable for a good property.
The New Wharf.
The city wharf at the foot of
Stewart avenue has been completed
and is in use now. Wm. McDonald, the expert boat builder, has
established a boat house at this
point and has a collection of the
finest boats in Kootenay for sale or
rent. The placid waters of the lake
are very inviting, the fishing good,
and the evenings are pleasant for
both boating and fishing.
It', a II11 miner.
Brooklyn presents better prospects today for money-making than
any town, in British Columbia.
Brooklyn has a better prospect for
making a mining town of considerable importance than many others
which have had years of time to
build and develop. Brooklyn not
only has excellent commercial points
of advantage, but has many chances
to be a mining center by the extensive railroad rock work which
will develop the prospect for the
miner.    Brooklyn is all right.
Good Brooklyn Property.
John R. Stussi came in from the
Mountain Chief Wednesday for
supplies. There is five tons of ore
on the dump ready for a test shipment to be made at Trail smelter as
soon as the ore can be packed out.
The adjoining claim, the Copper
Girl, shows up well, but Mr. Stussi
will not talk about his property except to say about $1,200 worth of
work has been done on them and
the showing is quite satisfactory.
Some samples have been left at the
News office and are examined by
visitors with considerable interest.
This Is Different.
Brooklyn is going to have something unique in the history of a
railroad mining camp. Brooklyn
is not only the best but the first in
all enterprises. In the new survey,
on the slope above the business
portion of the town, lots have been
reserved for the Salvation Army
barracks. Mr. Parker, the town-
site owner, is an enthusiast in this
work, and now that the opportunity presents proposes to give the
hundreds of men who are in the
camp a taste of religion pure and
simple, and as wholesome as the
mountain brook which passes along
at its foundations.
Mr. Parker informs the NEWS
that he has arranged for the entire
corps and brass band to come down
from Nelson at no distant day for
the purpose of giving Brooklyn and
her people the benefit of the first
religious service held in the new
city.
AWATERSYSTEM
And Electric Plant for Bustling
Brooklyn.
THE WORK IS COMMENCED
Pipes Ordered, the Oam UnderCon-
structlon, and Poles Are Being
Cut for the Wires���Great Work
Brooklyn never fails to lead the
procession. She has been to the
front in all things since she sprang
into the arena three weeks ago, and
now conies to the front again with
the Brooklyn Light & Water company, an organization with Mr. B.
M. Smith, late of Revelstoke, at the
head.
It is the intention to lay a six-
inch main from Stewart avenue up
First street to Brooklyn avenue,
thence up the alley to lot 14 and
into the creek; thence up the creek
3,000 feet to the reservoir, where a
head of 200 feet is obtained. This
will give a pressure of 100 pounds
to the square inch. The reservoir
will be 12x6 feet, 24 feet long, and
will furnish storage capacity for fire
use and can be drawn for an indefinite period as the natural supply
in the creek would be quite ample
for two large fire hose.
The pipe has been ordered and
work on the construction of the dam
has begun. The people need feel
no alarm as to the water supply, as
every effort will be made to push
the work and bring in water at, the
earliest possible moment.
In addition an electric light plant
will be installed as quickly as it can
be arranged. The poles are being
taken from the timber at present
and will be erected just as soon as
that part of the work can be reached.
The plant will be of the latest type
and be efficient in every respect.
Robs'on to Brooklyn.
In conversation with some of the
men who have contracts between
Robson and Brooklyn it was learned
that 1,750,000 yards of rock was to
be moved. The average price of
this work is about $1 per yard.
This means that $1,750,000 will be
spent on this section of the road,
which is directly tributary to Brooklyn. This added to the handsome
payroll coming from the boring of
the tunnel makes Brooklyn a very
attractive place formerchandising.���
Nelson Miner.
Colonel Topping at Brooklyn.
Brooklyn has been honored with
a visit from Colonel E. S. Topping,
one of the pioneers of this section,
and one of the owners of Deer Park,
across the lake. The Colonel is
greatly impressed with the new town
and speaks in praise of the enterprise and push of its citizens. While
here Superintendent Robinson of
the Rob Roy accompanied him to
the Cuba claim, near Brooklyn.
This is a very fine copper property
belonging to Mr. Bergh, who has
had assays averaging $35, copper
showing strongest, about i\'/i per
cent. Copper proproperties arc
selling more freely now than any
other, and the object of the colonel's
visit to the Cuba is to inspect with
a view of arranging a purchase with
capitalists. This property is less
than two miles from Brooklyn, and
its purchase and operation by a
moneyed corporation may mean
much for Brooklyn and her people,

BROOKLYN, SATURDAY, JULY 9, it
tion, with building going on day
and night. Some three or four
thousand workmen on the new railway will take up their monthly
wages at Brooklyn. The News
starts in a fruitful field.���'Rossland
Times.
The existence of the town of
Brooklyn, where two weeks since
was a primeval wilderness, shows
one of the characteristics of western
energy and push. It already has
its hotel, its' newspaper and a number of residences. It is already a
microcosm or epitome of the larger
world. It is the point where the
construction of the extension of the
C. & W. railway from Robson to
the Boundary country commences.
Churches and schools will follow,
and in a few months from now it is
within the range of possibility that
the residents will be laying their
plans for incorporation. It is thus
the cities of the west are established
and built up. The people of this
country who have built up commonwealths along their paths, from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, will soon be
at the end of their rope for lack of
territory in which to erect new cities
and communities, and the question
is what will become of them, filled
as they are with resistless activity
and a desire to found new colonies
in the virgin places which they visit.
They will, doubtless like Alexander
of old, weep on their weapons of
conquest of the wilds and the wilderness, because there are no more of
them to subdue. This is a question
which the historians of the future
will have to contend with. The
Aryan race started from its cradle
in the eastern part of Asia and has
had a triumphal march across Asia,
Europe and America and the beating surf and watery wastes of the
Pacific are about all that stand between them and the point from
which they started.
Luckily for British Columbia there
are many thousands of these empire
builders within its confines, and before the nomadic portion ol it leaves
for new fields they will have built
up many flourishing cities, tilled the
virgin soil, cleared the forests, developed mines and planted the seeds
and fruit of Anglo-Saxon civilization. It will in the future be the
home of millions of contented people.
The nomadic class, however, will,
like the Wandering Jew, go forth
in search of new virgin fields for
tfieir industry, energy and love of
adventure. The men who are
building up cities like Brooklyn in a
week are perpetually seeking that
which is new and are haters of the
conventional and the fixed customs
that attain in the elder cities and
communities of the world. They
feel cramped and confined in a community where the population is congested, and seek elbow room on the
frontier. They are the pioneers of
the army of civilization and well do
they perform the work that they
assign to themselves.
The Miner wishes success to the
new town of Brooklyn, and sincerely
hopes that it unlike Rome, us it was
built in a day, may have a glorious
future and that it may be one of the
important centers of the Kootenays.
It certainly deserves success for the
plucky and enterprising start that it
has made. Here's success to it and
its enterprising inhabitants.���'Rossland Miner.
The Brooklyn NBWS has been received at this office, and for a few
moments our thoughts wandered
back to "Old Long Island's seagirt
shores." But this Brooklyn is a
two-weeks-old town on Lower Arrow Lake, where the Robson-Pen-
ticton railway will enter the Gold
range on its way to the coast.
"Rome wasn't built in a day," but
Brooklyn sprung up in a night, and
already possesses a large popula.
The Brooklyn News, published by
Blackmer & Esling, of Trail, is the
latest arrival in the journalistic
arena. It's a hummer, and so is
Brooklyn. They boast of having
money to burn. One hundred and
twenty-five thousand feet of lumber
a week is being sold by P. Genelle
& Co. Brooklyn is only two weeks
old.��� 'Revelsloke Herald-
The Brooklyn News is the last
addition to B. C. newspapers.
Brooklyn is situated at the Arrow
Lake terminus on the Robson-
Midway railway and the News is
published there by Blackmer & Esling.���'Rosslander.
The collier Merrimac which was
sunk in the channel at Santigao by
direction of the hero Hobson, cost
the United States $342,000 a few
weeks ago. The Mew York Herald
points out that the transfer of the
Merrimac to the nation involved a
profit of $ 150,000 to the owners of
the vessel. The original cost of
the old boat and expense of repairs
aggregate $150,000 less than the
price at which the Merrimac was
transferred to the nation. War exhibits humanity in some of its best
and some of its worst aspects, and
surely there is nobler patriotism in
the poverty which offers its life to
the country below cost than in the
wealth which offers its steamers to
the nation at a profit of three or
four hundred per cent.���Toronto
