SCHOOL IS SURE
The Province Will Pay Teacher's Salary.
A PUBLIC MEETING HELD
J. H. Bolaa, C. W. OrMr aad Rob-
art Mean*. Chose, aa the
Temporary Trustees.
Brooklyn is to hav. a public
school as soon as it can be arranged. That much is definitely settled.
The petition, as noted in the News
at the time, which was sent to S.
D. Pope, the provincial superintendent of education, some three
weeks since, has brought a most
satisfactory reply from that official.
His letter to J. H. Bolan and
others is to the effect that the' department will pay the salary of a
teacher, and allow $40 towards incidental expenses, providing the
citizens will furnish a suitable place
for holding the school sessions.
This, when in running order, will
constitute what is known as an
"assisted school."
Accordingly, a meeting of parents
and others interested in seeing the
children of Brooklyn provided with
educational facilities, was called for
last Wednesday evening for the
purpose of electing three temporary
trustees to have charge of all matters in connection with the new
school, and to report to Mr. Pope
through the secretary.
W. H. Cooper was chosen chairman and W. B. Wilcox secretary of
the meeting, and the following were
elected as temporary trustees: J. H.
Bolan, C. W. Greer and Robert
Meehan, the first named being
secretary of the board, All being
men of family, everyone can rest assured that the affairs of the school
will have conscientious attention.
Mr. Pope has already been notified
of the action of the citizens, and his
early action on the matter is looked
for.
The school board estimates the
incidental expenses at about $30
per month, which amount will
doubtless be readily raised by popular subscription.
TO BRING ENGLISH CAPITAL.
Messrs. Rnmball ft Button  Leave
for London.
Last Tuesday's boat had for passengers, H. M. Rumball and H. R.
N. Bullen, who are making a trip to
London, England, their home, but
will return in a couple of months.'
The gentlemen have invested largely in the Kootenays and are the
owners of some valuable mining
properties. Representing a large
amount of English capital, they decided by visiting all parts of the
Dominion, that no locality offered
equal returns with West Kootenay.
This summer they have made
their headquarters in Brooklyn, and
in connection with their business
have operated the steam yacht
Oriole between here and Robson,
and which'will be continued on that
run this fall.
Among the valuable investments
made by Messrs. Rumball and Bullen are several business blocks in
Rossland, the June group on Athabasca mountain and other good
mining properties. They have made
many friends during their stay in
Brooklyn, all of whom, with the
News, will be pleased to see them
return once more to the Arrow Lake
metropolis.
Mla.ral Exhibit at Sp.kaa..
The editor of the News is preparing a mineral exhibit from claims in
this locality, to be sent to the Sko-
kane Fruit Fair. Those having desirable specimens can give their
properties the widest kind of publicity in this way. Bring or send
them to the News office as soon as
possible���not later than Sept. 30th.
Last year over 6,000 persons daily
visited this great fair, and the number is likely to be even larger this
year.
ORGANIZING A CHURCH.
Guarantee  Fuad  Subscribed Toward. Expenses.
Rev. John Munro preached twice
last Sunday in the opera house, the
evening audience being a large one.
Those who were present were much
pleased with the gentleman's discourses, and after the evening sermon a meeting of those interested
was held to provide ways and means
towards securing a regularly ordained preacher for Brooklyn.
This committee, consisting of D.
McLeod^ G. C. McGregor, C. W.
Greer, W. Parker, W. H. Cooper
and W. B. Willcox, held a meeting
Monday evening, and reported good
progress. Anyone desiring to make
a weekly subscription to the fund
can hand his name to either of the
above.
Mr. Munro left on Tuesday to at*
tend the meeting of the Kamloops
Presbytery at Nelson. A memorial
was sent by him, to be presented to
that body, requesting that he be
sent here to take charge of the work
in Brooklyn and vicinity.
Mr. Munro returned from the
meeting of Presbytery yesterday,
which he reports as being most,
successful in every way. It was decided to comply with the petition
from Brooklyn's citizens and station
Mr. Munro at this point. Services
will accordingly be held hereafter
Sundays at 11 a. m. and 8 p. m.,
in a suitable place of worship, to be
provided. Tomorrow services will
be held in the opera house.
PROGRESS AT GLADSTONE.
The New Townsite Has a Bright
Future.
J. S. Wisner, of Dorsey & Wis-
ner, of the Hotel Gladstone, was in
town early in the week for the purpose of securing supplies to enlarge
the capacity ot his accommodations.
The townsite belongs to Messrs.
Good, Forrest", Cameron and Dixon
and is favorably located a mile and
a half from the now famous Burnt
Basin, which contains many promising mineral claims. Lots are
selling readily for residence and
business purposes. A good trail is
now being built by the townsite
people to the Burnt Basin, which
will be of great utility.
Being located 24 miles from
Brooklyn and 10 miles from Christina lake, and on the right-of-way
of the railroad, Gladstone will probably be a good permanent little
town. It is expected that the recent application for a postoffice will
be favorably acted on when Inspector Fletcher comes through
there in a short time.
Several stores are already on the
ground and others coming. Grant
Bros., with a $2,000 stock, are put-
up a 24x30 building and are already
doing business. S. McOrmond is
also getting ready in a structure of
the same size. An offer of $40,
000 for tor the Johnny Bull group
of claims, only a mile from Gladstone, has been made by the British
America corporation, and it is
thought it will be accepted.
Messrs. Dorsey and Wisner have
the only hotel at Gladstone, and
are catering most successfully to
the constantly incre asing traveling
and freighting trade.

Brooklyn is fast growing to be a
mining centre, and one of these fine
days will surprise the world with its
dividend payers. This last week
two important events took place in
this line that mean a great deal to
the future of this section. One of
these was the sale of the Mountain
Chief group on Bull Dog mountain
for $10,000, and the other was the
strike made on the Bluebird, back
of Deer Park.
For some little time a deal has
been on for the Mountain Chief
group. A week ago expert J. E.
Leckie was here to examine the
property, and his report seems to
have decided the sale. Last Thursday T. M. Bowman, of Rossland,
solicitor for the purchasers, was in
Brooklyn, and closed up the details
of the deal.
The owners of the group are
David Stussi and John R. Stussi, of
Rossland, and Thomas J. Alexander, of Deer Park, the latter owning
a two-third interest in the Mountain
Chief claim. The other clains are
the Copper Girl, Annie, and No. 1.
The names of the purchasers are
not given out at this time, but Mr.
Bowman assured the News man
that they were eastern capitalists
and amply able to take over the
properties and develop them into
shippers. It is understood that
Mayor Wallace of Rossland is interested in the deal. The payments
are all to be made to the Bank of
Halifax in that city by January tst
next,
There are several other promising
claims adjoining the above, notably
the Yankee Boy, on which a deal is
pending. The properties are rich
in copper and gold, running upwards of $70 to the ton, and are
most favorably regarded by competent mining men. Mr. Bowman
was most enthusiastic over the proposition, and says his clients will
put a force of men at work on Bull
Dog mountain at once.
strike on bluebird.
Charles Doughton came down
from the Bluebird, three miles back
of Deer Park, early in the week and
stated that he had at last struck the
ledge, after going down on the incline 100 feet and drifting  24   feet.
There were three and one half feet
of fine ledge matter in sight, some
of it solid galena, and Mr. Dough-
{ton seemed to think the labors of the
last two years had at last been rewarded. He proceeded at once to
Spokane to confer with other members of the company to arrange for
building a wagon road to the property in order to begin shipments
as soon as possible.
The property is owned by the
Montana Gold Mining Co., of Spokane, and Col. Stratton, Henry
Treede and others are interested, in
addition to Mr. Doughton and
Capt. G. G. Smith, who located it
some two years ago. Assays on
the surface gave 160 ounces in
silver.
Local mining men are more than
confident that the Bluebird will
prove to be one of the great mines
of British Columbia, with proper
development.
FINE BURNT BASIN CLAIMS.
H. H. Loomis was in town Wednesday fiom the Burnt Basin,
where, with his partners,  he  has
located eight mineral claims that
have a most promising showing.
They are on McCrae Creek, the
railway right of way running
through them. They are called the
Caroline, Lottie, Addie, Bicycle,
Deer Park, Frederick and Copper
Cliff. An average assay across the
eight claims gave $11 in gold and
4)4 per cent, in copper. They are
located 16 miles from Christina lake
and but a mile from Oleson's 700-
foot tunnel. Mr. Loomis expects
to put on a force of men and develop
the claims this winter.
From Case.de City.
Cascade City, B. C, Sept. 15.���
A second saw mill is to be established here shortly by Messrs. Holt and
Brown, who expect to be in operation some time next week. There
is plenty of timber here, but the
saw mill now in operation, although
running double time, is unable to
supply the demand. Buildings are
going up as fast as lumber can- be
secured.
L. A. Hamilton, land agent of the
C. P. R., has been here this week,
and, it is said, has made a deal for
one-third of the unsold lots of the
townsite. It is understood that the
sarre arrangement was made with
townsite owners of Grand Forks,
Greenwood and other places in the
Boundary district.
New Freighting Firm.
A. D. Barber, of Slocan City, arrived in the city Tuesday and was
agreeably surprised at its bustle and
business-like appearance. He will
at once inaugurate a general freighting service on the tote road between
Brooklyn and Christina lake, and
will doubtless do a large business,
Bobby Allen will be associated with
thim in the enterprise.
HEWITT   BOSTOCK   HERE.
Cane Overland from Pe.tlcton and
Cascade City.
Hewitt Bostock, member of the
Dominion House of Commons for
Yale and Cariboo, arrived in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon, having traveled overland from Penticton and
Cascade City. Though tired and
travel-stained, Mr. Bostock had
time for a snort chat with the News
man, although he had but little to
say along political lines,
Mr. Bostock was merely taking
a trip through his constituency, and
getting acquainted with new faces
and persons on the way to Rossland and other points. While waiting lor the down boat, however,
he had time to express his surprise
and admiration at the enterprise
displayed in the building of the new
city of Brooklyn, and gave renewed
assurances that we would soon
have a Dominion postoflice established here.
Construction Mull Service.
W. S. Torney has purchased the
rights of Ml, VVease in the mail service to construction camps between
Brooklyn and Christina lake, ar.d
has already begun giving it his personal attention. Mr. Torney is
popular with the buys all along the
line, who will be glad at last to receive a regular and reliable service.
The News bespeaks success to him.
New Court Room,
Brooklyn was improved this week
by the completion of a new building
by justice-of-the-Peace Cooper, to
be used in his business. It is a
neat structure, conveniently located
on First street, near the townsite
office, and is surmounted by a flag
pole flying the Unio. Jack. It is
quite an addition to the architecture
of the city.
-   Steamer For Christina Lake.
W. U. Casey has ordered the machinery for a 6-horse power launch
which will ply on Christina lake.
The boat will be constructed to carry
35 passengers. It will be 30 feet
long and a 6-foot beam,���Rossland

BROOKLYN'S STABILITY.
It has been more or less of a
custom among those uninformed of
' the facts, to assert that Brooklyn
had nothing to rely on but the railway construction now going on.
Nothing could be further from the
facts, as the skeptical ones can
readily learn from a perusal of this
week's issue of the News,
Let us look at the matter fairly
and squaiely. The sate of the
Mountain Chief group on,, Bull Dog
mountain, for $10,000, is evidence
to all that mineral of value is contained in the hills close to us. This
group is located perhaps a mile, as
the crow flies, from the News office, and has a remarkable copper
and gold showing that would make
it saleable for several times the
price paid if located in Rossland
camp.
The recent strike on the Bluebird, back of Deer Park, of several
feet of fine mineral, is but another
evidence that this is one of the richest mineral sections in the Kootenays, and all it needs is thorough
prospecting and development to
prove it.
Brooklyn is a bustling busy town,
on account of the railway construction, and will be for some months to
come, but the day is not far distant
An assassin's dagger has once
more stricken down a crowned head
of Europe, this time the much beloved empress of Austria. The
world stands aghast at the awful
crime, committed by a self-confessed
Italian anarchist, without excuse or
reason of any kind, in the streets of
Geneva, Switzerland. Multitudes
of sympathizers with European
Francis Josef, wilt regret that the
laws of Switzerland do not provide
for capital punishment for crimes of
this nature. There are some crimes
that nothing else can possibly expiate.
It is becoming quite a common
thing to see representatives of Rossland and eastern capitalists in
Brooklyn, looking into the value of
our mines with a view to investing.
Mining experts also are growing
more and more in the habit of keeping an eye on these same splendid
properties. Let the good work
continue. Brooklyn will be a mining center of note one of these fine
days.
The city of New Westminster
suffered an irreparable calamity last
Saturday when the city was laid
low by fire. The money loss is
estimated at two and a half millions.
It was characteristic that cities, corporations and individuals so generously and quickly rushed to the assistance of the stricken community.
A new plan is said to be under
consideration by the Laurier Cabinet
for the division of the Yale-Cariboo-
Kootenay electoral district, thereby
constituting a separate district of
the Kootenays. If this is accomplished it will probably have a
tendency to make many friends for
the Liberal party in this section of
the Dominion. ��
The purchase of the Deer Park
townsite, opposite Brooklyn, by
Governor Mackintosh, manager of
the British America corporation,
for residence purposes, undoubtedly
means that this plat will be beautified and improved so that it will become the garden spot dF the Arrow
lake region.

"One thing I have noticed about

prominent contractor to the Observer, "and 'hat is the reliability of its

modestly said that such was the
only kind of information the News
cared to or would publish.

It may not be generally known,
but it is none the less true, that
tobacco has been cultivated in
Btitish Columbia and cigars made
therefrom equal to the best Key

cigars are grown and made up by

Kelowna, near O'Kanogan Mission,
B. C, and the sample submitted to
the Observer lor a test was certainly of a high grade.
��� ������
It is pleasant to note that it is
possible to do this in this province,
and that the Kelowna people have
shown the enterprise needful to establish a cigar factory in connection
with their other business. Along
this line, it may be stated tbat their
produce business is growing In
scope every month, and all the large
and small towns in Kootenay are
enjoying the benefits of their energy.
And Brooklyn is not by any means
the least of these.

KINO WILLIAM'S ROMANCE.
An Interesting Story of Holland*.
Young Queen.
Around Wilhelmina, Holland's
young Queen, more romance is
centred than usually falls to the lot
of a maiden queen. The Free Press
tells the story, which is interesting.
The Queen-Mother and present
Regent, Emma of Waldeck-Pyr
mont, is a descendant of one of the
most faithful of-the allies of the
Dutch Republic two centuries ago,
and was only 19 year, of age at the
time of her marriage to William III,
when he was sixty-two.
King William HI, the last male
member of the famous House of
Orange, was wild and dissipated in
early manhood. His first wife,
Sophia, daughter of the King of
Wurtemberg, succeeded fairly well
in curbing his dissolute tastes, but
when he succeeded to the throne on
the death of his father and came into a fortune of 100,000,000 florins,
he relaxed all restraint, and his
name became a byword over all
Europe.
After he had wasted all his money
and wrecked his health in riotous
living, and after his unprincipled
escapades had sent his wile, heartbroken and childless, to the grave,
King William HI suddenly under
went a change. To the surprise of
everybody, and to the disgust of
not a few, he fell in love���love seriously and honestly. The object of
this love was Princess Helen of
Waldeck-Pyrmont, now the widowed Duchess of Albany. She was
nearly 40 years his junior, a radiant
beauty, and a reigning belle in the
gay European capitals. She was
ambitious, but not ambitious enough
to aspire even to a throne as the
consort of such a notorious old
monarch, so she laughed her royal
suitor to scorn. Then came a romance. Listening one day, old
King William heard a conversation
between the Princess Helen and her
younger sister Emma. Woman
fashion, they were discussing their
love affairs, Suddenly Emma, reproaching the elder for casting aside
such a great opportunity, exclaimed:
"I should never refuse to become
a Queen."
The remark set the old roue monarch to thinking, Emma was certainly as beautiful as her sister, and
she would surely make a gracious
Queen, He made up his mind
quickly and asked for her hand.
Princess Emma, true to her word,
accepted, and became the Queen of
Holland. All the world has marveled at her splendid devotion during
the dark hours of her married life���
how she nursed the sick and semi-
insane old King through years of
tedious illness until the end came.
A year after the marriage little
Wilhelmina was born, and now the
j hild of this strange union is to be
crowned amid all the good wishes
of Europe. Few among the royalty
of Europe have become better
known, and none have more generally endeared themselves to all
classes of people than has Holland's
little Queen.

Li Hung Chang has been charged
to his face by the British ambassador at Pekin with having betrayed
his country to Russia. It is remembered now that when he attended the czar's coronation the
Russian Government loaded him
down with presents and showed him
attentions which attracted general
comment. His attitude since his
return to China makes it impossible
to doubt that he acted in accordance
with an understanding reached with
the Russian Government at that
time. The British Government befriended him some years ago, but
gratitude did not influence him when
substantial temptations were held
out to him.

Near Old Port Sheppard.
Some attention of late has been
directed towards the country near
old Fort Sheppard on the Columbia
river about five miles below Trail,
says the Rossland Leader. Quartz
has heen discovered here in strong,
well defined ledges, clearly separated
from the porphyry, carrying from
$2 to $3 in free gold. So large are
the bodies that the latter average
would make the properties very
valuable. Two prospectors,.named
Riley and Lang, have run a tunnel
on one of these for 26 feet, but no
ore has been sent up since they were
in five feet. The ledge tends to a
southerly direction and several ex-
from Brooklyn to Robson for the 1 tensions have been staked.

CUT FAWN IN TWO
Steamer    Rossland    Collided
With Genelle's Tug.
CREW'S NARROW ESCAPE
Accldeat Happened Three Miles
Below Brooklyn���Being Repaired at Shield's Landing.
About two o'clock Thursday
morning last week the Steamer
Rossland, bound north, with Pilot
Dugald at the wheel, ran into and
cut completely in two the steam
tug Fawn, with L. Bourgeois at the
helm. The accident occurred about
three miles below Brooklyn, opposite Burns & Jordan's camp, and it
was a miracle that none of the six
men on the Fawn lost their lives,
Both boats had lighls out as usual
and each signalled the other, but
the pilot of the Fawn misunderstood
the signal in some way, with the
disastrous result above mentioned.
When the collision took place the
engines of both boat's were reversed,
but too late. Captain Jack Genelle,
of the Fawn, had been asleep but
half an hour when the accident happened. The Rossland lowered a
boat as soon as possible and took
the shipwrecked mariners aboard,
who were brought to Brooklyn.
The Fawn was towed to shore by
the Rossland and made fast.
The next day the News man went
down with the Illicilliwaet, which
boat towed the two pieces of the
Fawn to Shield's landing, where
she could be placed on ways and repaired. It was found that the
Rossland cut through the little tug
abaft the pilot house as clean as
though it had been done with a
knife, completely severing about
ten feet of the stern of the craft,
Capt. Genelle completely exonerates
the officers of the Rossland from all
blame for the accident. He thinks
it will take ten days to repair the
Fawn, and estimates the damage at
less than $500. The tug is three
years old, 70 feet long, and of about
40 tons displacement. She is owned
by P. Genelle & Co., and is used
by that concern in their mill business along the lakes and river.
Had the Rossland struck her ten
feet further astern there would surely have been serious loss of life.
By putting on a large force of
men and pushing the work of repairing, Genelle and Co." were able
to launch the Fawn once more this
week, and Thursday night the boat
went up the lake to Nakusp to get
a raft of lumber.
