HAYE 5,000 MEN
Gigantic Pay Roll Begins on
Thursday.
OVER 1200,000 IN CHECKS
Contracts All Let From Robson to
Greenwood���Good Weather Has
Helped.
Over 5,000 men are now employed
on the railway construction between
Robson and Greenwood, the headquarters of which are at Brooklyn.
During the last month laborers have
continued to come in steadily and
have been set at work at once.
Next Thursday is the monthly pay
day of the contractors. Paymaster
Woodman has found it necessary to
put on an extra clerk to get out the
5,000 and more pay checks for the
large force employed.
The work is now all under way as
far as Greenwood, and large forces
of men can be seen all along the
line. As fast as the sub-contractors
finish some of the easy work below
here, they are rushed to the front,
where plenty of other work awaits
them.
Good weather has prevailed thus
far, but the wet season is setting in,
when the work canrot be pushed so
fast. It is, therefore, safe to say
that the headquarters will not be
moved from Brooklyn till spring.
This will mean a continuance of the
good busniss now prevailing here
until that time at least.
The contractors will disburse over
$200,000 this month all told.

I  CONSTRUCTION NOTES.   2
���%������$��������������������&%&%����&������������
Dr. Gordan now has charge of
the company's hospital at Cascade
City.
A, B, Barber and Bobby Allen
are now running their teams to
Cascade and carrying passengers.
John a McMillan, who now owns
Cotton's hotel, has secured a license
and is doing an excellent business.
j.Twohy Bros..have but 13 stations
let out on their contract. They are
doing (host of the work themselves
and have 150 men employed.
Johnson & Co., who have a subcontract for the 335 feet tunnel, below here, from Burns & Jordan,
now have a double shift at work,
The new town of Niagara, 9 miles
from Grand Forks, is having a
boom. Pat Welch has begun work
on his rock contract in that locality.
W. F. Tye, chief engineer of the
Columbia and Western, is now in
the east, It is said that he will
become a benedict before he returns.
Bob Dibble, who sells papers and
periodicals along the line of construction, finds a big demand for
his wares. He always comes back
empty handed.
Joseph Newman has sold his railroad outfit to Contractors McMartin,
Swanson, Anderson and others, and
he will embark in the general merchandise business at Cascade City.
Some 15 head of cattle are driven
overland weekly to P. Burns and
Co.'s slaughter house, near Gladstone, whence it is distributed to
the various camps up and down the
line.
Porter Bros, received two large
upright hoisting engines at Shields'
Landing this week, which will be
used in the erection of the 800-foot
bridge over Moberly creek and along
the line.
Freighting on the tote road   is
getting to be pretty heavy, but there
is no let up on the immense quantities of merchandise going out of
Brooklyn, and even through to
Cascade City.
P. Genelle and Co.'s new mill,
near Robson, is running out about
40,000 feet of lumber per day for
bridge timbers, working 10 hours.
The upper mill has had to close
down on account of being out of
logs.
Some 25 or 30 men are at work
on the bridge over Moberly creek at
Shield's Landing. This is the
structure that will have about
750,000 feet of timber in it when
completed. The work on it will
probably last till Christmas time.
John McMartin, who has 2j4
miles of work, seven miles out, has
180 men employed' and is making
good headway, the contract being
largely rock cutting. He has also
secured another contract farther
out, on which he will start operations before long.
Contractor Boomer, of Winters,
Parsons and Boomer, who have a
five-mile contract on the summit,
informs the News that his work is
going on in good shape, and if good
weather holds out, a large hole will
be made in before winter. There
are six camps on the work.
A corp of surveyors under Mr.
Ross are making a thorough survey
of the route between Penticton and
Boundary Creek-for the V. V. & E.
Railway. The surveyors are now
working back of Camp McKinney
and expect to have their work completed before winter.���Greenwood
Times.
J. W. Stewart, manager for
Mann, Foley and Larsen, has been
busy the past week awarding contracts between Grand Forks and the
summit; nearly all the contracts on
the north fork of the kettle river
have been awarded. Some of the
contracts in the vicinity of Fisherman creek are very heavy and it will
take nearly the entire winter to do
the work.���Grand Forks Miner.
Alex McPherson, of McPherson
Bros, and Stout, came in from the
saw mill, some 20 miles out, on
Monday. He informed the News
man that in another week or two
the mill will be removed to Gladstone, where it will make another
hole in the 5,000,000-foot cut of
timber laid out for it. The mill will
then be run night and day. Thus
far this firm have gotten out about
75,000 ties, leaving 100,000 yet to
be delivered to complete their tie
contract.
More Teams Needed.
R. D. Hawks, the general mer-
shant from Gladstone, who was in
Brooklyn this week, says that there
is still a shortage of freighting
facilities between the two places,
and that several more teams could
get steady work. This is the universal verdict. All the freighters
now on the road have all they can
do and more, and when bad weather
comes, before long, the situation
will be aggravated.
Rescued Just In Time.
Early Monday morning a laboring
man was sleeping on the C. P. R.
dock, and was noticed to fall into
the lake while still in the arms of
Morpheus. Fortunately there were
several men standing near, and the
unfortunate sleeper was rescued
with no worse result than a thorough wetting. It was doubtless in
some such way as this that George
Richardson, whose body was found
floating near the wharf on the morning'of the 3rd inst, as chronicled in
last week's issue of the News, met
his death.
IN BURNT BASIN
District Most Promising in a
Mineral Way.
NOT PAR PR0N BROOKLYN
Free Gold Properties Are the Rule
end ot High Grade���Some ot
the best ot Them.
One of the most promising mining sections of this region is that
now known as the Burnt Basin,
located within a mile of tne new
town of Gladstone, the latter being
25 miles from Brooklyn. Conservative mining men who have been into
the Burnt Basin and examined its
remarkable ledges and outcroppings
of free gold, agree that for a new
and undeveloped district it certainly
has a most promising future. There
are a large number of locations and
many of them, it is believed, will
indeed be future bonanzas, if indications count for anything.
In the fall of 1896 Charles Wil-
lardson made the first locations,
which were the Mystery groups,
which has been worked this summer
with good results. It is a free gold
proposition. In the spring of 1897
the Edison group was.staked by
Hunter and Hend-'son of Rossland
and then the Bryan group by the
same parties. The Solid Gold group,
originally located by Fred Fredericks,
was sold for $50, and lately $40,000
was refused for it. The claims, consisting of Solid Gold, Halifax,
Havana, Mainton and Jenny Lind,
have magnificient showings of gold,
copper and galena. Assays run
from $22 to $70, and some development work has been done. Richard
Cooper, of Rossland, is the owner.
Quite recently the Tammany
group has excited much attention
trom the splendid free gold samples
taken fiom it, which run very high.
It is now being worked, the owners
being Reed, McPherson and Ray of
Rossland. On the same lead is the
Mother Lode group, owned by Mike
Schaick, from which the astonishing
assay of $6,500 in gold has been
obtained. It will be operated this
winter.
East of McRae creek is the John
Bull group, owned by Cameron,
Forrest, Good and Dixon, another
free gold property. An offer of
$40,000 has been refused and the
owners will work it themselves.
The Ennismore, the Tunnel group
and the Hastings are all promising
properties, of which great things
are expected some day, On the
McCrae creek slope the Diana, the
Buckingham and the Marinet all.
look well, and only need development to prove their worth.
Altogether the Burnt Basin appears to have a bright future. The
confidence of the owners of the
properties is the greatest, and they
doubtless will be rewarded as development proves them up.
THREB ROYAL FLUSHES.
The City Drug Store, over the
bridge, can fit you out to perfection
with toilet soaps, perfumes, and
everything in that line. tf
Aad Then the Big Jack  Pot  Was
Divided.
A recent dispatch from the Coast
has the follow ing interesting account
of a game ot draw poker on an
Alaska liner:
Men who arrived in Seattle Wednesday evening on the steamer
Conemaugh from St. Michael tell
the story of a wonderful game of
draw poker that was played there
one evening several weeke ago.
There were four men in the game,
as follows: Dr, Kelsey, of Philadelphia; Chief Engineer David D, Silva,
Chief Steward Campbell and Third
Officer David Sanford, all of the
Conemaugh, *
Campbell opened a jack pot with
three nines, The three others stayed
in, and each drew one card. Things
were so hot after the say had passed
around once that Campbell dropped
out.; Dr Kelsey, Sandford and De
Silva kept on betting until all their
available cash was on the table.
Then they looked at each other and
went at it again. Each bet a month's
pay in advance. After this they
looked at each other a moment, and
then went at it again. They bet
even their clothes. When there wus
nothing left to bet, the call came.
Strange as it may seem each had a
royal flush, conseqently they were a
tie, and the pot, some $400 in cash,
was equally divided.
Mall Hours.
Mails at our new post office close
daily at 4.30 p. m. for Rossland,
Nelson and Robson, and at 8.30 for
Revelstoke and points beyond.
Mails are received daily from the
above points and places beyond
through them. Postmaster Livingston has now got his office in good
working order and is doing a large
business in postage stamps, etc.
The post office is open daily from 8
a. m. to 8 p. m.
C. P. R. President Here.
Sir William Van Home, president
of the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.,
who is touring the Kootenay and
looking over the company's lines,
came up the lake yesterday as far as
Brooklyn. The trip was made for
the purpose of inspecting the new
railway line along the lake. Richard
Marpole, western manager, accompanied the man who receives a salary
of $50,000 per year, or nearly $140
per day.
Barry's Restaurant Reopened.
J. M. Barry has bought out his
partner, Mr. McKaig, in the restaurant and bakery business. The
restaurant, which was closed for a
few days, was reopened yesterday,
and is once more catering to its
large list of customers. Every
delicacy of the season can be had at
this popular resort at reasonable
prices. The bakery and milk depot
will also be continued.
SCHOOL   OPENS   MONDAY.
Building  Has  Been   Comfortably
Fitted Up.
Brooklyn's first public school will
start up Monday morning at nine
o'clock. Miss Elizabeth Fletcher,
the new teacher, arrived on Thursday, and for the last fwo days carpenters have been arranging the
home made desks to the best advantage. All parents in Brooklyn are
requested to see that the children
are on hand promptly to receive the
first lessons from the new instruc-
toress, who will teach the young
idea how to shoot. Miss Fletcher,
whose home is in Victoria, is the
young lady who formerly had charge
of the school at Waterloo, below
Robson, for the last year, which she
has conducted successfully. Between 30 and 40 scholars can be
accomodated in the school room.
Working His Claims.
John McDonald, the boatman,
started for his claims, the California
Girl and Fireside, on Tuesday, to
0 assessmsnt work. The property,
which gives a $9 gold assay on the
surface, is located near the Needles,
40 miles above Brooklyn, near the
Narrows, and is considered decidedly promising.
Arrested tor Petty Larceny.
James McLeod was arrested Monday for stealing a saw from Mr.
Gordon and selling it to Mr. Bris-
bois. Justices McGregor and Cooper gave him 60 days in the provincial jail to reflect on it, and Constable Forrester escorted him to
that institution at Nelson. BROOKLYN NEWS, BROOKLYN. B. C, OCTOBER 15, 1898.

SEVERAL HOT THINGS.
As noted heretofore in the News,
an epidemic of townsite plotting has
broken out in the Boundary country.
Just now it is at its height, though
presently many of the purchasers of
lots will be looking around in a
search for the fool killer. A few of
these new towns���very few���have
merit, but most of them are built
on wind.
A short time since Minton, at the
foot of Christina lake, was laid out.
Then followed Christina, in the same
locality. But now several more
have sprung into existence like a
mushroom in the night. One of
these is Duluth or Monte Carlo,
just over the boundary line from
Cascade City. This place is to be
run "wide open," with all that this
term implies, and there will doubtless be hot times there for a while.
Another of the railway (construction
towns is Niagara, on Fisherman
creek, a few miles from Grand
Forks.
So far as can be learned, the end
is not yet. If the people of this
section do not secure all the wild cat
town lots they wish, it will not be
for   lack of  opportunity.     In  the
meantime, the older places like Cascade City,  Greenwood and  Grand
a
Forks, move evenly on their way,
taking on a more substantial growth
every month.
BrooKLYN, with the rest of Kootenay, seems to be getting its share
of returned Klondikers. And they
seem to agree that Kootenay is beyond all odds the better field for
the prospector. We are not speak-
now, either, of the thousands who
have lost their all in the far-off
Yukon, who would naturally have a
hard luck story to relate. Old
Kootcnaians who have returned
especially, say amen to the above,
for they know whereof they speak,
Six deaths from violence have
occurred so far among the workmen
on this 105 miles of railway construction. When the number of
men���3,000 to 4,000���is considered,
and their reprehensible carelessness
is understood, the number is comparatively small. At least, this is
the judgment of old railroaders. If
there is not a whole gang killed,
through criminal carelessness in
handling powder, it will be fortunate.
The Rossland Miner, if it would
leave out personal spite and take a
lesson in journalistic ethics, thereafter crediting matter lifted bodidly
from the columns of contemporaries,
would be a better paper, and its
recent semi-occasional enlargement
would be more appreciated. Steal*
ing news is no more defensible than
stealing chickens. It is not so long
since the Miner was singing in this
identical key.
It is a noticeable fact that most
of those who take a survey of the
business field from here to Midway,
and size up the general situation,
return to busy Brooklyn-on-the-take
with a better opinion of it than
ever. It is worth while making a
note of this.
The Klondike is now getting
some free advertising not bargained
for by its most enthusiastic boomers, in the investigation of charges
made against various government
officials. Taking It all around, that
much talked of region is not as
popular as it was a year ago.
If it proves true that the 850,-
000,000 saved by the Khalifa at
Khartoum has been found, the
Anglo-Egyptian campaign into the
dervish stronghold will prove quite
profitable from a monetary standpoint.
The Nelson Miner has greatly
improved in its news features within the last month. It it was also
enlarged, at least one column to the
page, it would undoubtedly have a
larger sale in the surrounding
country.
The provincial exhibition at New
Westminster was opened by his
honor Lieut.-Gov. Mclnnes. It is
said to be a magnificent show and
to reflect great credit upon the unremitting labors of the management.
It was a pity that some of Uncle
Sam's Santiago veterans should return home to be shot down by Pillager redskins in peaceful Minnesota.
I     THE OBSERVATORY.      2
A couple of weeks since the Observer took occasion to remark on
the unseasonable���as well as unreliable���hour at which the north
bound boats reach Brooklyn. What
was said then found a hearty echo
in the breast of many a traveler who
read it, but no reform could be discovered on the horizon. However,
last Tuesday the boat reached this
place before midnight, and it seemed
as though a reform was really coming. But it was surely too good to
be true, and we doubt not that,
before these lines are in type, the
floating palaces that plow the foaming billows up the Arrow lakes will
fall into old habits again. But we
shall see. We hope we are mi.'
taken.
���f ��� ���
THe carlessness of many laborers
about  blasting   is,   indeed, (Worse
than criminal���if it could be. Travelers on the tote road, as a rule,,
have no protection or warning whatever, and often rush into great
danger without knowing it. The
other day Mail Carrier Torney was
forced to dismount and seek shelter
behind a tree from the shower of
rocks that, surrounded him. And
his is but one case out of many. If
the men responsible endangered
only their own lives it would not be
so reprehensible, perhaps.
��� ��� ���
Contractor Boomer, whose work
is almost entirely above the tote
road, informs the Observer that the
recklessness of his men about this
matter is the worry of his life. He
has issued the strictest orders repeatedly that two men are to be
sent down the road, one each way,
to warn wayfarers when blasting is
about to begin. Sometimes one is
sent, but more often none, and this
criminal work still goes on.
��� ��� ���
The Observer has a remedy to
offer. Inasmuch as the killing off
of one or two of their number does
not seem to abate the reckless carelessness among the workmen, why
not try a good strong dose of justice.
If one of the men failed to go as
ordered were to spend about six
months in the provincial jail, to consider it, every one of the other 3000
and odd laborers would learn of it
and take no chances of receiving a
similar sentence. Severe measures
must be taken to abate the criminality.
Brooklyn now has as good a mail
service asany town in the Kootenays,
receiving and dispatching daily sacks
from and to Rossland, Nelson,
Revelstoke and beyond. But when
the authorities sent a paltry $50
worth of stamps to last a month or
two, it was laughable, had it not
been so serious In just two days
they were gone, and once again
there was a postage stamp famine in
the land,
���f ���*��� ���
For the edification and general
enlightenment of the postal department, be it known that nearly 4,000
persons mail letters at the Brooklyn
post office, and it is ridiculous to
expect $50 worth of stamps to
suffice. If but a letter a week were
written by each, it would take 16,000
three-cent stamps per month. And
only 1,666 were sent I Great head,
that, whoever arranged it. He
should be promoted.
��� ��� ���
While in Rossland this last week,
the Observer had the pleasure of
meeting the editor of the Rossland
Times���who signs his name K. ff.
Bellairs. Mr. Bellairs is making an
unique journal, and we admire his
plainness in saying outright that he
is publishing it for the sole purpose
of booming mining stocks in Rossland. Mr, Bellairs is making a
paper that is read far and wide���
even across the briny.    At least, so
he says.

returned on Wednesday.
Try the Central short order lunch

Another good sized outfit for
freighting came in last week from

The latest newspapers and magazines are always on hand at Manuel's cigar store. tf
Fred Bradford is a recent Daw-
sonite, who has lately been looking
over busy Brooklyn.
Everything neat and clean. Open

The steam tug Fawn brought
down another raft of lumber from
Genelle's mill at Nakusp on Sunday.
Then is a steady demand for lumber now.
Attention is called this week to
the card of D. A. Munro, the expert blacksmith, on the first page.
He pays special attention to jobbing.
A. B. Barber a few days ago lost
one of his magnificent horses which
he used for freighting. Dry colic
was the cause ol his untimely taking off.
During Tuesday night's wind

Postmaster Livingston informs
Thz News that U. S. stamps "don't
go" in his postoffice. Some people
have evidently overlooked this little
fact.
The boxes in the new post cffice
are going like hot cakes, and it
looks as though it would be necessary to add to the number soon.
The price has been placed at 50
cents per month.
Novels, periodicals and stationery
can be found at the City Drug Store.
Prompt attention to mail orders. If
you wish prescriptions carefully
prepared they can fit you out with
satisfaction. tf
That satisfied expression on the
face of your friend is more than
likely caused by one of those choice
cigars which he got at the City
Drug Store. This store is doing a
big cigar trade and only keeps the
finest grades of cigars. tl
Within 24 hours, early in the
week, the following steamers were
at Brooklyn: Rossland, Kootenay,
Trail, Lytton, Illicilliwaet, Fawn
and Oriole. All but one of this
fleet were carrying freight or towing. It takes a good many boats
nowadays to haul all the freight and
general merchandise needed in
Brooklyn.

Monday. The same evening Cav-
anagh stole an overcoat from the
Kootenay, and was arrested by
Officer DesBrisay that night at
Shield's Landing, and received a
sentence of six months the next
day.
Freighting up and down the lake
to Brooklyn is as heavy as ever.
The large boats unload all the way
from one to six carloads of general
merchandise on almost every trip.
Out on the tote road there is also
an increasingly large amount of
freight being hauled, notwithstanding the tact of the roads getting
worse and worse in many places.

Nelson's hospitals are full to overflowing.
The Bank of Toronto opens up a
branch in Rossland today.
Rossland now has an operatic
society, that will shortly give the
"Pirates of Penzance."
The new C. P. R. steamer being
completed at the Nelson shipyards
is to be called the Moyie.
Kuskonook, which suffered for
eight months for lack of postal
facilities, now has a post-office.
Greenwood citizens are "kicking"
because of the irregular and unsatisfactory mail service to and from
Grand Forks,
A controling interest in the Spokane and B. C. Telegraph and Telephone Co. has been secured by C.
O'Brien Reddin and Co., of Rossland.

2       CURRENT TOPICS.        2
What on earth did the government have a prohibition plebiscite
for? Was it a joke? If so it was
an expensive joke and one in very
poor taste besides. ��� Rossland
Leader.
Mine Inspector Byrnes of Butte,
Montana, says that some miners
estimate that a fuse will burn one
foot a minute, but that this theory
is wrong. He maintains that the
standard of a foot of fuse is only 30
seconds.
New Denver mining properties are
looking better with every stroke of
the steel that is put on them, All
that was ever needed to bring this
section into prominence was work,
and close attention is now being
given to this important producer of
wealth.���New Denver Ledge.
The Yankees may not be great in
the game of war, but when they
come to sit down at a long tablo to
square accounts and bargain with
Spain they are in a game at which
they can beat the world, and if
Spain has anything left worth having after they get through, it should
be preserved as a curiosity.���Nelson Miner.
Hon. J. Fred Hume, the newly
appointed minister of mines, has
issued instructions barring gold
commissioners, mining recorders
and their employees from dealing
in mineral claims of any sort. The
only condition under which an exception will be allowed is in the
case of mineral properties already
owned by the officials to be affected
by the new rule. A statement of
all such holdings must be filed at
once with the minister.
What a farce the prohibition
plebiscite has been. Fancy a wide
open mining camp like Rossland
giving a majority in favor ot prohibition. Of course the better informed know that the whole business was only a political trick and
got up by the Conservative party to
embarass the government. But all
the same the liquor men had better
get together and organize themselves to oppose such movements in
the future.���Rossland Times.
The Spokesman-Review reports
that the contract for the construction of the 53 miles of track on the
Nelson and Bedlington railway from
the main line of the Great Northern
railway to Bonner's Ferry and
Kootenay lake will be let in a few
days. It is understood that J. D.
Farrell of Spokane is one of the
chief bidders for the work. The
plans of the company are to run
trains from Spokane via the Great
Northern and the 53 miles of N. &
B. track to the lake connecting with
the steamer line and thence to a
connection with the Kaslo and
Slocan railway into the heart of the
Kootenay country.
An exchange says that in the beginning God created the heavens
and the earth, then he made the
(ditor, the liberal advertiser and the
prompt paying subscribers, and it
was good. The next day a blizzard
set and He created the man who
didn't believe in advertising, and
another who didn't take his home
paper, then he rested. The devil
got into the moulding room, and he
created the fellow who takes the
paper for years and then fails to
pay for it. After completing that
sorry job, and having a few lumps
of mouldy mud left he made the
excuse for a man who settles his
subscription by instructing the postmaster to mark his paper "refused,"
and then he felt so mean about it
that he has been kicking himself
ever since
Prof. Totten predicts that the
world will come to an end in March.
This fact will be worth remembering
by those who are about to lay in
their winter supply of wood and
coal.���Nelson Economist.
With Russia in China, backed up
by powerful influence in Court, with
France in Africa, in addition to the
multitudinous matters elsewhere demanding immediate and serious
consideration, the British Government has its hands pretty well filled.
There seems to be very little doubt,
however, as to the result, and
"What we have, we'll hold" may be
supplemented with "What we want,
we'll have."���Kamloops Sentinel.
The Brooklyn News is prepared
to furnish the best in the world���
bar none���in the line of job printing
and general office stationery, Bring
in your orders for envelopes, letter
heads, cards, tags, and in fact,
