A FATAL BLAST
John L. Wilson Hnrled to Almost Instant Death.
HE PELL OVER 400 PEET
Lived Only ��� Few Minutes After
the Terrible Fall���Leaves Two
Motherless Children.
The first fatality in the construction of the Robson-Penticton branch
of the Columbia & Western railway occurred yesterday at a point
about seven miles below Brooklyn,
when John Lewis Wilson, a native
of Sweden, was hurled to almost
instant death���life becoming extinct
in about thirty minutes.
Wilson, who was employed ou
the sub-contract of Vernon W.
Smith near McCormick's Landing,
had been at work about six weeks,
and was busy in the rock cut at
11:30 yesterday morning, when a
rock weighing 500 or 600 pounds,
loosened by a blast, struck and
hurled him into the abyss below.
The body fell some 400 feet down
the steep mountain side toward the
lake, and Wilson lived only half an
hour thereafter.
Frank Williams, an old time
friend of Wilson, was with him
when the unfortunate accident occurred, and came to Brooklyn last
night to arrange for the funeral.
The remains were .hipped by the
steamer Kootenay last night to
Nelson, accompanied by Mr. Wil-
lams, interment taking place in that
city today.
Wilson had been on this side of
the water for 16 years, and had the
reputation of being a steady industrious man. His wife died some
six years ago, but two children, 6
and 8 years of age respectively, survive him, who are living at Castle
Rock, Colorado. He leaves them
nothing but an interest in some
mining claims in the Fort Steele
country.
NEW HOTEL AT THE DIVIDE.
Messrs. Graham and Sparks Have a
Two Story Building.
As will be noted by their card in
another column, Messrs. Graham
and Sparks have opened a hotel 15
miles from Brooklyn, which from
its location, is to be called the Divide hotel. This new house will
undoubtedly be a great convenience
to freighters and travelers generally,
as it is the only hotel building between Porcupine creek and the
divide. Mr. Graham is a veteran
in the hotel business, that having
been his vocation for the last ten
years, which gives him the experience necessary to cater successfully
to the large trade he will receive.
The hotel building is 35x33 feet
in size, and two stories high. Barns
and stables will be erected at once,
making this establishment one of
the most desirable to put up at between Brooklyn and Christina lake.
Everything possible will be done
for the comfort of travelers. The
location of the hotel is close to the
dividing line between Yale and
West Kootenay, and about half
way to Christina lake. The house
will undoubtedly enjoy a good share
of business.
IT WAS A REAL TREAT
Washington Marine  Band Met a
Royal Reception.
Last week's visit of the Washington Marine Band to Brooklyn,
was a treat to the citizens of this
appreciative town. The reception
accorded them was a royal one in
every way, and must have pleased
the dozen members belonging to the
organization. Coming as they did
a. members of the Salvation Army,
their visit was a distinct benefit to
that cause, not only here but in
every town in Kootenay which was
visited in their tour.
The organization, which belongs
to the Salvation Army, held open
air meetings here which were attended by a large proportion of the
population of Brooklyn. The collections exceeded those taken in
Nelson or elsewhere in Kootenay,
showing the appreciation by Brooklyn citizens of the good work being
done by the Salvation Army. In
the evening, the band gave a concert to a packed house, that was a
real treat to our music lovers. The
receipts from all sources amounted
to $64.
I Wm. Parker', the townsite owner,
through whose enthusiastic endeavors the visit of the band was
secured, was unremitting in his
efforts to make the affair a success
and he was amply rewarded by the
warm reception accorded. Thanks
are due.the Anderson House, International and Central Hotels, Queen
and Gem restaurants, Messrs. Barry and McKay, Kootenay Lumber
Co., and Mann, Foley Bros, and
Larson, for assistance in furnishing
accommodations and in fitting up
the tent.
Brooklyn was not the only place
represented at the concert. Quite
a number came across the lake from
the neighboring town of Deer Park,
to enjoy the music, among them
being Mr. and Mrs. McCardle,
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander, Mrs.
Kyle, Judge McGreger, Jack Robinson, John L. Benjamin and Proprietor Williams of the Grand View
Hotel.
��� An incident worthy of special
mention was the reception accorded
Mr. Dickson, the evangelist, when
Introduced by Brigadier Howell
during the concert to make some
announcements. It was a tribute
worthy of the man and the'work he
has been doing in our midst, and
was an evidence of the appreciation
in which he is held by Brooklyn
citizens.
WILL OPEN ON MONDAY.
Brooklyn's New Opera House to lie
Ready.
Manager Crowley, of the new
Brooklyn Opera House, informs the
News that he will be all ready for
business next Monday. A force of
five men have been at work all the
week on the floating pleasure resort,
and are now putting on' the finishing touches. With a 12x25 stage,
having a proscenium opening of
17 feet in the clear, it will answer
the purpose for which it is intended
most admirably. The first attraction will be the cyclorama of the
Spanish-American war, and promises to be more than usually interesting. Special scenery is being
painted by a competent artist and
everything will be done for the comfort of guests.
Another admirable feature is that
during the day time it will be arranged for a reading room, something for which there is a great
need in Brooklyn. Altogether,
Messrs. Crowley and Reid, the proprietors, intend to make it a resort
where anyone can enjoy himself.
On next Saturday, .August 27th,
"Around the world to the Klondike," will be presented.
Another Steamer for Brooklyn.
Brooklyn has another steamer
added to the fleet which touches at
this fine wharf. The C. P. R.
steamer Illicilliwaet, heretofore running between Arrowhead and
Thompson's Landing this spring,
has been withdrawn from that
route and will hereafter ply between
Brooklyn and Robson, leaving
Brooklyn at 8 a. m. and Robson at
4 p. m., on the arrival of the freight
train from Nelson. The steamer is
now run by Captain Hughes and will
touch at all points between here and
Robson and will be used particularly
for carrying powder on certain days
This will give Brooklyn even better
facilities for transportation and will
doubtless prove a convenience to
the traveling and freighting public.
ALONG THE LINE
Progress Matte In the Different
Camps.
STILL SHORT OP HELP
Work Being Pushed With All Possible Speed���J. 0. McLean 8 Co.
Begin on Their Contract,
There are nearly 90 men in the
tote road gang, making on an average about two miles per week.
Burns & Jordan now have some
thirty men at work on their rock
cutting contract at Camp 'No. 8,
and could use more.
There are two stores in tents on
the line; one about 14 and another
17 miles from Brooklyn, carrying a
general line except groceries.
George Sturgis went out this
week to take charge of J, G. McLean's boarding house. He is an
experienced man at this work.
Anderson & Applequist, who have
a contract for a mile and a half, 18
miles out, like most of the contractors, complain of a shortage of
men.
Contractor Koydendall has about
100 men at work on his two mile
contract, including station men. He
is now looking for more horses and
carts.
At Videen's camp, about eight
miles down toward Robsqn, there
is a good sized force employed, but
100 more men could easily be put
to work.
In three days last week Brown's
tote road gang built five miles of
road, said to be unusually quick
work. They are pushing it for all
it is worth.
O'Leary has begun work on the
approaches to his 300-foot tunnel
just above Shields' Landing. About
125 men are employed and as many
more are wanted.
J. H. Graham took out a lot of
supplies last Sunday for his new
hostelry, the Divide hotel, located
about 15 miles from this city, on
the main tote road.
Station work is a popular method
of getting a large part of the contracts completed, many, laborers
claiming to be able to do better
than by day's work.
Peter Larson and Contractor J.
G. McLean went out to the present
end of the tote road Monday morning, to take a survey of the line of
construction in that vicinity.
The machinery for the McPherson
Bros. & Stout saw mill has been
shipped and is expected shortly.
The mill will be turning out bridge
timbers about the 10th of next
month.
Ryberg's camp now has a force
of upwards of 85 men, who eat
there square meals a day; but like
Oliver Twist, in common with other
contractors, Mr. Ryberg is crying
for "more."
Work has started on the second
tunnel, being driven by Contractor
Olsen about 23 miles out. He will
have 150 men at work when in full
blast, and have fine quarters built
for their accommodation.
B. Quass returned Sunday from a
trip to Cascade City. He took the
Foot and Walker line on the way
back, making the 47 miles inside of
a day and a half. He says that
town lots in Cascade are held at
$800 each, 50x120 feet in size. .
J. T. Donaldson is erecting a 54X
20 hotel building, two stories high,
about 19 miles out, near Anderson's
camp, to be ready for business in
two weeks. Mr. Donaldson formerly ran a hotel at Goat River
Landing on the Crow's Nest line.
Fred Stamwitz, the popular bookkeeper for J. G. McLean & Co., is
once more with that well known
contracting firm. Fred has many
friends among the railroad men.
He will probably be located at the
point of operations, about 25 miles
from Brooklyn.
Gladstone is the name of a new
townsite about 20 miles from
Brooklyn, on the tote road,* where
S. J. Wisner has his log hotel, and
is preparing to do a rushing business. He has secured a license to
retail liquors, and is located across
the divide in Yale district.
Mrs. Phillips, wife of Contractor
Phillips, who with Mr. Mclver,
has 40 stations beyond the tunnel,
had a narrow escape last week, a
rock from a blast striking the pillow where she had been lying but a
moment before. A cyclone cellar
now protects the children of the
family from any further possibility
of harm.
A. J. McLellan, who has the contract from Station No. oto No. 80,
from the summit west, was in
Brooklyn last Monday. He says
he is making first rate progress
with his rock cutting with the 45
men now on, but wants at least 50
more just as soon as they can be
had. His camp is about 14 miles
from Brooklyn.
After the Contract.
James D. Sword, of Rossland,
representing the Ingersol-Sergent
Drill Co., and F. R. Mendenhall, of
the same place, representing the
Rand Drill Co., were in the city
yesterday, figuring ou the contract
for furnishing the air compressor
for McLean Bros., who have the
contract for boring the long 3100
foot tunnel, to be driven through the
mountain five miles from Brooklyn.
Mr. Sword secured the order,
which calls for a 12-driU air compressor.
Opened on Friday.
Yesterday the Windsor Hotel, on
First street, was thrown open
throughout to the public. It is
owned by E. A. Dills, with Manager Shanks in charge. The hotel
is new-and complete in every detail,
and has commenced business at a
favorable time. Every thing that
the weary or thirsty traveler needs
can be found he re, and the house
will doubtless get its share of the
patronage.
ANOTHER LAROE OUTFIT
J. 0. McLean & Co. at Work 28
Miles Out.
Monday evening the steamer l.yt-
ton brought up a large cargo consisting largely of the grading outfit
of J. G. McLean & oC���one of
the best outfits on the right of way.
It was at once gotten under way
for the scene of operations, about
25 miles out towards Christina
lake. In the outfit were 2K head of
splendid draft horses, two miles of
rails and a large assartment of wagons, carts and paraphernalia used
in this character of work. It is estimated that the outfit is worth
about $8,000, being most complete
in every particular.
McLean Co. is one of the best
known firms of railway contractors
in the Kootenays and in the northwest, having had contracts on nearly all the lines built in. late years,
including the Great Northern,
Crow's Nest, Slocan Valley and
others. They will make the rock
and dirt fly to some purpose when
they get fairly under way, and will
lose no time in finishing their two
miles. THE BROOKLYN NEWS.

IMPERIAL  PENNY   POSTAGE.
It is announced that the very
acceptable present of Imperial penny '"jstagc will be made lo the residents of the United Kingdom.and
Canada on Christmas day, 1898.
This will be one of the longest
steps in advance for many a year,
and will serve to ,till further cement
the business bonds between the Dominion and the mother country.
Speaking of this matter the London Telegraph recently said: "It
may be hoped that the uniformity of
postal rates about lo be established
between the United Kingdom and
Canada will soon be extended to
the United States, and will be cordially welcomed by our American
kinsfolk as symbolic of that truest
sort of alliance, which is based on
community of interests and familiarity of intercourse. It is our firm
belief that at no very distant date
a penny stamp will frank a letter
between Great Britain and her colonies and any part of the Union, and
that the six-penny telegram will become an Anglo-American institution. The peace of the world can
not be more soundly guaranteed
than by administrative innovation
tending to consolidate the British
Empire and to promote the intimacy
of its relations with the greatest of
Trans-Atlantic Republics."
Brooklyn, the new marvel in
towns, is 25 days old and has 25
hotels.���Rossland Times.
Not quite so fast, Brother Bel-
lairs. Brooklyn is a great town
and is growing steadily, but you figure too high by nine or ten.
������������������W��������������R��������5eeee

S      THE OBSERVATORY.      g
There is one matter that should
be brought to the attention of the
proper anthorities, and that without
delay. It is the practice, more or
less common among some of the
smaller contractors, to set off blasts
without any sort of warning to the
traveler who may happen to have
business in that direction. Several
narrow escapes have been reported
recently that were beyond the
shadow or a scintilla of a doubt due
to sheer carelessness on the part
of employes. Contractors should
remember that the statutes of British Columbia are decidedly explicit
���as well as severe���on this subject. Another side of the matter is
that contractors are liable for personal damages resulting from careless blasting. It would not take
many damage suits to send the
profits on a contract a-gliminering.
"Verbum sap."
��� ������
It was a notable feature of the
visit of the Washington Marine
Band of the Salvation Army to
Brooklyn last week, that the open
air free-will collections taken up in
this city exceedsd those received
thus far by that excellent organization in any city in the Kootenays,
Nelson not excepted. This may be
taken as an indication that the citizens of this place not only fully appreciate a good thing when they see
or hear it, but that they are open
hearted and generous to a fault.
Seemingly it is one of their characteristics, and a most commendable one, top. In every way the
visit of the band was a success, and
will long be remembered by our
people.
*:���*
Almost every man, woman and
child in Brooklyn has been looking
forward to today (the 20th)���the
date set for the distribution of a
goodly amount of filthy lucre among
the thousands of men working in
the 25 or 30 railway camps surrounding Brooklyn. That its effect
will be immediately felt goes without saying, and every business man
will soon begin to recognize that
fact. This, of course, however, is
only the forerunner of what may
be expected. It means good times
���the best of times, in fact���for the
entire community. And as the
number of men employed increases,
the size of the payroll will grow
accordingly. This will be a good
fall and winter in Brooklyn. There
is no chance for doubt on that
point. The Observer.

S TIMELY TOPICS. 2
It was announced yesterday that
the C. P. R. will close up their business on the Stickine river, altogether, says the Province. Of the 12
boats originally intended for busi-
on the Stickine there are now four
at Wrangle, the Ogilvie, McConnel,
Hamlin and Duchesnay. The Ogilvie has been making the weekly
trips to Glenora but the others are
laid up. All four will be sent up
the river to guard against attack by
teredos and the ancient town of
Wrangle will be left ence more to
the accustomed quiet from which it
was disturbed so rudely by the ill-
timed rush of the spring of '98.
"In the fall of 1863," says the
Boston Transcript, "when the war
department authorized the formation
of negro regiments in eastern Tennessee, Shafter was commissioned
colonel of one organized at Mur-
freesboro, although General George
H. Thomas declined to recognize the
formation. Within four months
Shafter had taught every negro under him how to read and write, and
he drilled the organization until it
was the show regiment at Nashville
The regiment distinguished itself at
the battle of Nashville."
Six months ago the Miner prophesied thai there would be general
prosperity and that business would
be rushing in Rossland this autumn,
says the Rossland Miner. It is now
only midsummer and the condition
referred to is already upon us. Of
late there has been a marked increase in the volume of business of
all kinds.    Every one   is   making
money. There are more opportunities for employment than there
are men to fill the positions. From
now on the camp is sure to go
ahead with leaps and bounds. We
venture another prophecy and that
is that within the next 12 months
the present population of Rossland
will be increased 50 per cent.
The Grand Forks Miner in discussing the political situation, says:
"the Province is not yet in the
hands of Joseph Martin and it is not
likely >o get there. Hon. Mr. Turner is premier and will doubtless be
so for the next four years * *
and with the pretty little fight that
has been started up for the leadership of the oppositon party they will
have sweet time getting themselves
into power in this or anyother legislative assembly." The Miner urges
concession for consession on the
part of the burg in which it is published, and the C. P. R. people, for
a right of way running through the
city, and says: "If it appears that
the C. P. R. intends so locating its
tracks and depots as to be in the
way inimical to the best interests of
the city, they should be granted no
concessions whatever as it is ineffa-
blv better for this city to have no
railway at all than one which will
be a detriment to it.
5 KOOTENAY MINING NEWS 2
Reports from Lemon creek properties are most encouraging.
Five hundred tons of ore are to
be packed from the Last Chance before the tram is finished.
There are 140 men working at
the Payne. Five feet of ore came
into the lower tunnel a few days
ago.
Last week, the first shipment of
ore over packed through Trout
Lake City was taken to Nelson and
Everett.    It amounted to 50 tons.
About 20 men are employed
about the Enterprise. The force
will be increased and the property
probably worked on a more extensive scale when J. A. Finch
visits it this week or next.
The Cranbrook Herald states
that arrangements have been made
for the building of a smelter and
refinery there and for the installation of a plant for generating electricity to the extent of 2,000 horse
power.
The steamer Victoria, built this
spring at Trout Lake City, is completed has made several satisfactory
trips to the foot of the lake. She
is a square-bowed scow about 70
feet long, with engines and a stern
wheel, and much resembles the Illi-
cilliwaet on the Arrow lakes.
Owing to increased facilities the
C. P. R., telegraph company on
August 1st reduced the telegraphic
rates from Kootenay points to the
coast offices, from 90 cents day
rates to 60 cents, and from 60 cents
night rates to 40 cents. Proportionate reduction will also be made
to eastern points.
Work on the wagon road to the
St. Eugene mine in East Kootenay,
has actually commenced. The contract has ceen let to Messrs. Halley
6 Webb, of Utah, and the work js
now well under way. It will take
at least 30 days to complete the
contract.
Application for Liquor License.
We, the undersigned, Cummings
& Jackson, intend to apply in 30
days time to the gold commissioner
for a liquor license for our hotel, to
be known as the summit house
about 17 miles from Brooklyn, located on the wagon road to Christina lake. Cummings & Jackson,

Wisdom la Solid Chunk..
The salary of a clerk who could
bring his employer busiuess to the
amount of $100 for every $5 paid
him would not be considered profitless expense, Rather an investment
and a good one, too. No hesitancy
would be felt in keeping him. In
fact, it would be considered poor
business policy to think of dismissing him.
Successful merchants look at advertising from this standpoint. The
analogy is a perfect one. Advertising belongs to the same class of
expense as does clerk hire.
Why do not merchants dispense
with their clerks in order to keep
down their expense?
Simply because they could not
conduct that business without-hired
help.
Good advertisements are active
salesmen.
Judicious advertising can not
help but prove a profitable investment.

THORPE A CO., Ltd., Victoria, Vancouver, Nelson. WILL SOON OPEN
Brooklyn to Have a Good Public School.
PETITION WAS SENT IN
Will Be a Great Inducement to
Families to Settle Here���More
Than Required Number oa List.
Brooklyn must have all the latest
and the best of everything. In fact,
nothing is too good for its citizens
and those who have staked out
claims in this burg, and believe in
it. No well regulated community
can expect any degree of pcrma-
nency unless provisi in is made for
the education of the rising generation. This want has already been
felt in Brooklyn and the News is
pleased to state that there is no
doubt that the need will be supplied
at an early date.
Mrs. K. D. Mechan, of this city,
who has a family, took the matter
up, and with the help of John W.
Manuel, the enterprising cigar dealer, has ascertained that over 25
children of school age are now located here���the legal requirement
being 20.
Correspondence has been entered
into with S. D. Pope, of Victoria,
provincial superintendent of public
instruction, and Mr. Manuel has
forwarded to him a petition signed
by a number of heads of families in
the city, asking that a public school
be established here and a qualified
teacher sent to take charge. After
the necessary formalities have been
gone through with and the usual
amount of official red tape unwound
there will doubtless be every chance
afforded for teaching the young
ideas of brooklyn how to shoot.
It is hoped that the details can all
be arranged within a few weeks at
the most. In the meantime parents
who tavor the establishment of a
public school, should give their
names to Mrs. Mechan or Mr.
Manuel, who will gladly add them
to the list.
MEN ARE COMING FAST
Bigger Forces now at Work la the
Craps,
During the last week between 300
and 400 additional men have been
secured by Messrs. Mann, Foley
Bros. & Larson, and put to work
on the Robson-Pcnticton branch of
the Columbia & Western railway.
The agents of the contractors in
Victoria, Vancouver, San Francisco,
Boston, New York and elsewhere,
report good success in securing
men for the work, and in a comparatively short time they expect to get
all the laborers needed. The price
offered is the uniform one of $2 per
day, and the contractors advance
transportation to Brooklyn. One
agent, located at Boston, wired that
he had just sent forward 300 men,
and more will doubtless follow.
Fair progress is being- made on
the work all along the line, and the
tote road is now completed lor
iibout jj miles to Christina lake.
Progress on this tote road is a little
slower just now, as the men have
encountered considerable rock work.
Men are strung out all over the
contract getting out ties, of which
about 300,000 will be required.
One-half of these are contracted for
by Genelle & Co., and the balance
by McPherson Bros. & Stout. Six
kinds ol timber can be used for
thi. work���hemlock, spruce, red
fir, cedar, tamarack, pine. Many
men are being added to the force of
tie makers continually, some preferring this class of work.
Every camp is gradually but
surely increasing the number of
workmen employed, and consequently the contractors are beginning to wear a more beatific smile
as a rule. As soon as the harvest
is over there trill undoubtedly be all
the help needed. As it is, the daily
arrivals will now average between
30 and 50 men.
A BIG CASH DEAL.
The Center Star Mine was Sold for
���2,000,000.
Rossland, B. C, Aug. 12.���The
great Center Star mine, says the
Rossland Miner, brought the biggest
price ever paid for a mining property
la the Kootenays.    The price is
$2,000,000, and it is a cash transaction. The purchasers are the
Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate of
Toronto, who own the controlling
interest in the War Eagle Consolidated Mining and Development
company.
The deal has been in progress
over a year, and the property has
been carefully examined by some of
the most eminent mining experts in
the country. Among these was
Captain James Morrish, the superintendent of the Velvet. The reports of these experts were unanimously favorable, as they all told
the same story of the great extent and permanence of the ore
deposits and the large quantities of
pay ore in the mine.
On the part of the Centre Star
company Oliver Durant, of Spokane, the general manager of the
company' carried on the negotiations. They were protracted and
many points of disagreement arose
during the progress of the deal.
It is stated on behalf of the new
owners of the property that the development work will be immediately
resumed on a larger scale, and
that a large power plant will be installed and as many men as can be
accommodated will be put to work.
It is stated on the start 200 men
will be employed. The mine is in
such excellent condition, and so
much ore being ready to stope, that
it is thought within a very short
time the shipments could be made
to come up to 500 tons per day, and
a little further on this could, by a
little extra effort, be increased to
double that quantity.
The experts who have examined
the property unite in declaring that
it is by far the best mine in the
camp. The sale is on the basis of
$4 per share, or four times the
par value of the shares, as the capital stock was only $500,000.
Of the 500,000 shares of capital
stock, Oliver Durant and Alexander
Tarbet, of Salt Lake, own 360,000
shares, Sir Charles Ross, Bart.,
owns 40,000 shares, and the Patrick Largey estate of Butte, Mont.,
most of the remaining 100,000. It
is stated that Mr. 'Williamson has
invested $100,000 of his own money
with the Gooderham-Blackstock
syndicate in the purchase of the
Centre Star.
It is stated that a new company
will be formed by the purchasers
with a capital  stock of about $3,-
