OUR POSTOFFICE.
L.  M. Livingston Notified ot
His Appointment.
OPEN IN A SHORT TINE.
Festive Soap and Cracker Boxes
Will Soon Give Way to More
Modem Appliances.
It is now a settled fact that
Brooklyn is to have a regularly established postoffice. A good deal
of annoyance has been caused because of the unsatisfactory condition
in this regard heretofore, although
everyone acknowledges that Town-
site Owner Parker has done all in
his power to lessen the unpleasant
situation, and has contributed his
own time in the effort.
Last Wednesday L. M. Livingston received official notice from R.
M. Coulter, Deputy Postmaster
General at Ottawa, that as soon as
the necessary bond had been filed
he would be appointed, according
to the recommendation sent in. E.
H. Fletcher, inspector of the Victoria post office division, is expect-
en in Brooklyn almost anyday, he
being now in Kootenay, and after
his visit the supplies will be ordered from the coast and the office established at once. This all ought
to be accomplished inside of ten
days���perhaps much sooner.
It will be a source of great satisfaction to all business men to have
this much needed improvement
made. The postal authorities move
slowly, but they get there if time
enough is given. The soap box is
distined to go, and no more can the
festive lounger place his No. 14
brogans in the cracker box, used
for newspaper mail, and enlighten
us on the burning issues of the day.
The efforts of the News and the
petitions of our citizens for postal
privileges will soon be satisfactorily
answered.
IS 6,000,000  FEET.
That Much Timber to be Cut by
One Firm.
Last Wednesday M. R. Rush,
who has charge of all the outside
work of McPherson Bros. & Stout,
who will supply a large part of the
timber and ties for the new railway
line, was in town. It was his first
visit for over a month and was for
the purpose of receiving and forwarding the machinery for the new
saw mill to be erected at Station
230, about 18 miles out. The mill
comes from the Hamilton Mfg. Co.
of Peterborough, Ont., and is one
of the best of its class, the various
parts requiring an entire car to
transport it here.
Work on the foundations for the
mill have been under way for some
time and are now ready for the
machinery, which will be hauled to
the site without delay. It is expected to be in complete running
order and turning out 30,000 feet
daily by the toth inst. The contract is for cutting the bridge timbers and ties for 75 miles of road,
from Boomer's Camp to Midway.
This large order .vill, it is expected,
call for 6,000,000 feet of dimension
timber and about 200,000 ties.
When in full running order 40 men
will be employed in and around the
mill and 150 cutting ties. It is
probable that the completion of this
contract will require a year's time.
Mr. Rush stated to a News man
that his people had had a great deal
of trouble with forest fires of late,
and altogether have lost 2,000 ties
fiom this cause. The heavy rains
of this week, however,  have com
pletely extinguished I he fires. Mr.
Rush is constantly on the go, having charge of all the linn's work
outside of I he mill.
Jones-Edwards.
In Rossland, Monday afternoon,
by the pastor of the Methodist
church, R. R. Jones of Brooklyn
and Mrs. H. J. Edwards of Waterloo were united in marriage.
Mr. and Mrs. Junes have been
guests at the Crown Point hotel
this week, and will make their
home, for the present, at Brooklyn,
where Mr. Jones is engaged with
McPherson Bros. & Stout. Mr.
Jones is well known in Trail, having
formerly been connected with the
B. C. S. fc R. Co.
Plebiscite on Sept. 29th.
L. M, Livingston has been selected as deputy returning officer for
Brooklyn for the plebiscite soon to
be taken throughout the Dominion
on the question of whether prohibition shall be submitted to the people
of the several provinces. The election will take place on Thursday,
the 29th inst.. and the place of balloting will be announced later
through the columns of the News,
DEER PARK TOWNSITE SOLD.
Gov. C. H. MacKlntosh the Buyer
For $10,000.
The townsite of Deer Park has
been sold outright to Gov. Charles
H. MacKintosh, manager of the
well known British America Corporation, now so largely interested
in the Kootenay mines. Negotiations have been pending for some
little time between Mr, MacKintosh
and the owners of the townsite; Col.
E. S. Topping of Trail and John,
Julius and S. F. Petersen, owners
of the Crown Point hotel. The
purchaser desired the property for
residence purposes, and it is understood to be his intention to build a
home in this beautiful spot, which
he considers one of the most desirable in the Kootenays,
The purchase includes altogether
nearly 1400 acres of land, and includes three miles of water front on
the opposite side of the lake from
Brooklyn. It extends back nearly
a mile from the lake.
When Mr. Petersen was approached by the News representative in
regard to the consideration for the
townsite, that gentleman proved to
be as communicative as an oyster.
He thought the weather was fine,
and noted with interest the steamer
Trail passing' with a couple of
barges, but about the Deer Park
townsite he eeemed to be profoundly ignorant.
From other sources, however, the
News learns that at first $8,000
was offered, which was finally increased to $10,000, when it was
accepted. In the deal the vendors
reserve 20 acres and four blocks for
the Petersen Brothers and 20 acres
and one blo-.k for Col. Topping.
It is a matter for general congratulation that the property has
now passed into the hands of people
who have the desire and ability to
make Deer Park what it is destined
to be���the garden spot of the
Kootenays,
Regular Church Services.
Brooklyn is to have regular
church services hereafter. Last
Monday Rev. John Munroe arrived
in town, having been sent from Ontario by the head officials of the
Presbyterian church for the express
purpose of conducting weekly services in this city, Mr. Munroe has
secured the use of the opera house
for next Sunday and services will be
held at it a. m. and 7 p. m., with
Sunday school at 3.00 in the afternoon. The new preacher is a graduate of McGill University, and is a
pleasant gentleman. He has already made many friends.
KILLED OUTRIGHT
Three Men  Hurled to  Death
at Smith's Falls.
CARELESS WITH POWDER.
Victims Were John Klnnear, Oscar
Anderson and Thomas Lane-
han���Dan Ryan Narrowly Escaped.
Three men killed outright was
the result of one premature blast
last Wednesday morning on the
contract of V. W. Smith, about
eight miles below Brooklyn. It
was the result of sheer recklessness,
and the blame rests entirely on one
of the victims.
The frightful accident occurred
at 10.30 a. m. at a point about 600
feet above the lake. John Kinnear,
Oscar Anderson and Thomas Lane-
han were the victims. These three,
with Dan Ryan, who escaped, had
a sub-contract for five stations, from
No. 1099 to 1104, and were putting
in two blasts, one of eight kegs and
the other of 20 kegs of black powder. The first one was successfully
placed, and Ryan and Lanehan were
at work on the second. After twelve
kegs had been safely poured in the
hole became clogged.
Knowing the danger attending,
Ryan warned Lanehan not to attempt to loosen it with the iron
spoon, so often used by foolhardy
men, and started after a can of
water. He had proceeded but a
few feet when he saw a flash and
was hurled some 15 feet, but almost
miraculously escaped being seriously hurt. Lanehan, however, with
Anderson and Kinnear, who were
working a little lower, were instantly thrown down the steep mountain
side a distance of 200 feet or more.
When the bodies were reached by
other workmen and by Messrs. McCoy, McGuire and Hare of the engineer corps, who were near, it was
found that Lanehan had been killed
outright, and the others lived but a
few minutes after being found.
The remains of the three unfortunate workmen were brought to
Brooklyn the same day by Contractor Smith and Dan Ryan, the survivor, on the steamer Oriole, where
they were taken in charge and examined by Dr. Ewing, the company's surgeon. It was found that
all three ol the men had received
numerous compound comminuted
fractures, besides many injuries on
head and internally. Lanehan, who
received the full force of the blast,
was the worst used of all.
All of the men were unmarried.
Two were about 23 years old and
the third about 35. Kinnear's father is employed on Boomer's contact, and was at once sent lor.
The bodies were buried the next
day.
BOATS FOR CHRISTINA.
No Lack of Transportation on That
Lake.
As contracts are let further out
towards Christina lake and Cascade
City, and more men are put on,
there is increased activity on that
sheet of water. Since the Illicille-
waet was put on the Brooklyn-Roh-
son run, and practically monopolized
that business, to the exclusion of
the smaller boats, the owners of the
latter have been looking up the
feasibility of transferring their craft
to Christina for construction work
trade. As a result, it has been decided to place them both on the
lake, hauling them over on the tots
road to that point.
Captain C. Benjifield, owner of
the steam yacht Myrtle B,, has sold
her to Messrs. Beattie and Mathe-
son, who have already started on
the job of transfering her to Christina lake. The Oriole, belonging
to Rumball & Bullen, will also be
taken to the lake, probably early
next week, and put on that sheet of
water.
It is also stated that the small
stern wheeler Marion, which ran up
Kootenay river to Goat river, on
the Crow's Nest construction, will
be put on Christina lake before long.
Evidently there will be no lack of
transportation for the present on
that lake.
Beginning In Boundary.
The Grand Forks Miner says that
actual work on the C. P. R., in the
Boundary district has been commenced and the dirt will soon be
flying thick and fast between Cascade City and Grand Forks. On
last Saturday Lang & Co., who
have the contract for three and one-
half miles this way, commencing at
a point across the river from Cascade City, arrived with their grading outfit and established camp
about a mile this side ot Graham's
ferry, and the work of clearing the
right-of-way was commenced the
fore part of the week and giound
was actually broken yesterday
morning. Substantial quarters are
being put up by the contractors
who expect to get another five
miles adjoining and this side of the
one they have now.
WILL   EXHIBIT   MINERALS.
Spokane Fruit Fair Making Big
Preparations.
W. A. Stewart, superintendent of
the mineral department of the Spokane fruit fair, writes as follows
concerning the proposed mineral
exhibit which it is intended to have
at the fair:
"It is proposed to make the mineral department of this year's Spokane fruit fair one that shall properly represent the various camps of
the northwest. The exhibit will be
arranged with a view to giving the
best educational results, and no
pains will be spared to make it one
of the most attractive features of
the fair. Those familiar with the
good results derived trom the mineral exhibit at last year's fruit fair
will readily appreciate the importance of this movement, which
brings together the prospector, the
miner, the investor, and all who
may be seeking information concerning the mineral wealth of the
great northwest. The fruit fair
management undertakes to receive
all shipments at the Spokane
depots and see that the same shall
be properly placed on exhibition in
the mineral department of the fruit
fair and due credit given to the
camp and the consignor sending the
same.
"United and intelligent effort on
the part of all interested in the success of this movement will make
the exhibit one that every prospector and miner may be proud of.
"All specimens should be carefully labeled and wrapped in paper,
and all exhibits should be forwarded
to reach Spokane not later than
October 1st, and should he addressed W. A. Stuart, Superintendent,
Fruit Fair, Spokane, Wash."
First Death in Brooklyn.
Last Sunday morning the first
death took pkiccjin Brooklyn, when
C. Larsen, a laborer, went over the
divide. He had been ill for a
couple of weeks with fever, and had
been given every care at the Company's hospital, but finally succumbed to the disease. Larsen
was a young man of 35, formerly
employed on A. R. Mann's contract
at Shields' Landing. He had a
brother living in Manitoba. The
remains were interred on the hillside back of the town. THE BROOKLYN NEWS.

IMPENDING IMPERIALISM.
The transformation in the politics
of the United Slates as a result of
the war with Spain, is an event involving circumstances that few
thinkers are al present able to foresee. The growing disposition ol
the party in power to retain all the
Spanish colonies conquered by the
United Stales is finding support
among the commercial classes and
the masses of the people who are
ever ready to indulge in that spurious type of patriotism that finds
expression in gloating over the
prostrate forms of the vanquished.
So swift has been the whirl of
events that the greal mass of the
people have been intoxicated to the
point of natural delirium, and the
time for "second sober thought" of
cool judgment is not likely to be
heeded until a new national policy
shall have been formulated and promulgated, which may result in the
overthrow of the old-time tenets of
democracy on which the republic
flourished.
The proposition to retain all the
Spanish colonies means that henceforth the United States is to be a
great military nation, for as it is
generally claimed by the parly in
power that none of the people freed
from Spanish rule are fit for self-
government, it follows that they
must be ruled by superior force, and
this means a great standing army,
which involves a departure from the
fundamental principles on which
the republic is founded.
The tendency to outreach for territory beyond the American continent is not of yesterday. Grant in
1871 had strong support in a desire
to get a foothold in the Atlantic and
was only curbed by the reform republicans in the Senate and his
break with Sumner. Had Grant
succeeded in' annexing San Domingo the first step would have been
taken by peace to accomplish what
has now virtually been brought
about by war. Since Grant's time
this spirit of territorial hunger has
been active and only awaited an opportunity to assert itself.
The Hawaiian complication of
1893 was a proof that the party of
Imperialism was on the alert for an
event, and it was made to order,
and only the Cleveland administration checked the grabbing of Hawaii
for a time.
This grabbing of Hawaii bears
evidence of being the most pronounced case of Imperialism under
the present United States regime.
The circumstances surrounding the
seizure of this group of islands are
a significant illustration of how in
the lust tor territory all sense of
honor and regard for the feelings of
the outraged Hawaiians are trampled under foot. The natives of the
islands, a highly civilized and generous race, who were happy in their
isolation for upwards of 2,000 years,
until Captain Cook accidentally discovered them, are taken over body
and bones; their government, which
had consular representatives in
every civilized land, overturned,
their flag hauled down by the United States without so much as saying "by your leave."
The methods and process by
which these islands were annexed
were the same by which Germany
seized Kie Chaw, only that the
Hawaiians gave no provocation.
Never did Czar or Kaiser commit a
more flagrant outrage against the
liberties of a defenceless people.
The war-spirit is spreading a halo
of glory over questionable enterprises and conquests which the student of history will estimate at their
true value, and it will be strange if
a retrospect of the near future does
not reveal the grim spectre of Imperialism hovering in deadly shadow
over the glory of a once magnificient
republic.
Writs have been issued for new
elections of the recently appointed
cabinet ministers, returnable on the
15th of October. While, from the
very nature of the case, there is a
wide diversity of opinion in regard
to the new cabinet, there is little
doubt but that each appointee will
be endorsed by his own constituency. In our own Nelson riding,
J. Fred Hume, the new minister of
mines, and who is also provincial
secretary, will once more seek our
suffrages. That he is the right
man in the right place will be noted
once more when the|retums are  in.
"Chinese" Gordon is avenged,
and Khartoum and Omdurman
have fallen before the irresistible,
onslaught of the Anglo-Egyptian
forces in the heart of Egypt. General Herbert Kitchener's campaign
was admirably planned and faith-
lully executed, and as they have so
often done before, the English veterans came out victorious, A remarkable fact was though 8,000
dervishes were mowed down by the
deadly British bullets, the loss on
the English side was comparatively
small.
There is a world of wisdom in
the following lines, which were evidently written by a man who had
been through the mill:
There was a mat) in our town
Who wusn't over wise;
He started into bu^ines,
But he didn't advertise 1
Of course there's a moral
Connected with the tale,
He runs an advertisement now
It's headed���"Sheriffs Sale."
Fever is killing off more of Uncle
Sam's brave soldier boys than Spanish bullets did. Many an American
home will hereafter have a vacancy
caused by the unequal fight with
unfortunate climatic conditions.

2        CURRENT TOPICS.        2
Under section 6 of the Plebiscite
act and section 83 of the Dominion
elections act, all saloons must be
closed on September 29 until 7 p.
m., that being the day the vote will
be taken on the question of prohibition.
Application is being made to the
legislative assembly of British Columbia for a charter to construct a
railway from Trail to Sayward on
the Columbia river, thence to Sal-
mo, and from that point following
the Salmon river to its junction with
the Pen d'Oreille river.-
The body of the late Kenneth
McDiarmid, who was drowned at
Slocan Junction, recently, has not
yet been recovered. The deceased
was a young man of about 25 years
of age, a native ofMartinville, Ont.,
and had been in the country only a
short time. He was employed by
H. W. Simpson & Co., clearing

Philatelists of the world will mingle their tears with those of Midshipman Morris of the Vizcaya, who
lost a collection of 2,500 postage
stamps, including many rare European varieties, when that vessel
was sunk by the Yankee warships
says an exchange. If the Vizcaya
is ever raised and these stamps can
be saved, philatelists would give
their very eyes to have one or two
of this collection to add to their
hoard. They would bring more
than old Vizcaya cost.
ON   BUI.LDOU   MOUNTAIN.
New Company Will  Work Several
Claims.
Geo. N. Taylor left last night,
says the Rossland Leader, to put
two men at work doing surface-
work on the West York, Brandon
and Mayfield on Bulldog mountain
near Brooklyn. These claims were
located a few weeks ago, and since
the owners have incorporated themselves as the Standard Gold Mines
of B. C, limited, with Mr. Taylor
as president and treasurer; W. H.
Jackson, secretary; Dr. Davies,
vice-president, and R. Darrell of
Brandon and J. M. Miller of Vancouver the other directors.
Bulldog mountain shows an iron
capping very similar to that around
Rossland, and is the scene of considerable mining activity this summer, as the proximity of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway will furnish cheap
and convenient transportation.
Our New Governor-General.
The Earl and Countess of Minto

J. G. McLean & Bros.' contract
is entirely let out in stations, and is
now well under way.
About 40 four-horse teams are
now hauling supplies and merchandise daily over the tote road.
J, G. McLean, who has a three
mile contract 26 miles out, returned
this week from a visit to his home
in Seattle.
J. C. Shepard, formerly in the

blast. He has already set off three
blasts, using over 300 kegs to each
one.
Shields' Landing will soon be
able to boast of a hotel, which is
in course of construction by Eli

good one.
Contractor Boomer, who was in
town for his contract on Wednesday, says that he is still far short of
the number of men needed on his
four and one-half miles of work. He
now has 175 men on and could use
as many more to good advantage.
Like most of the other sub-contracts, his work is largely rock cut
ting, of which considerable has been
let out in stations.

SS9SSSSe9*9*S��>StiSSSeSSSSSSSi TRUCK ACT CASE.
First   of  the   Kind  Tried   In
Brooklyn.
CASE WAS THROWN OUT.
Richard Crozier Sued Mann, Foley
Bros. 6i Larson for $71.35 on
a Time Check, But Lost His
Case.
The Truck Act case, referred to
in last week's issue of the News,
created considerable interest and
the court room was crowded during
the hearing. The following is a
full report of the case and the decision rendered.
The case was entitled, Richard
Crozier vs. Mann, Foley Bros. &
Larson, an action for wages.
The plaintiff, a blacksmith, sues
the defendants, contractors, for balance of one month's wages, ^r 1.35,
due 31 si of August, and for which
the defendants gave a time check
and refused to pay until the regular
pay day, the 20th September. Complaint was laid before W. H. Cooper, J. P., and G. C. McGregor, J.
P., and the case came on for hearing at Brooklyn Sept. and, 1898,
when Horace Buck, solicitor, appeared lor plaintiff, and Mr. B. F.
Woodman appeared for defendants.
After some argument, by consent of
both parties information was amended and it was agreed that the case
should be tried under the "Truck
Act."
Richard Crozier, being sworn,
said: I am the plaintiff. I reside at
Brooklyn, in the County of Kootenay. Prior to coming to Brooklyn
my occupation was a blacksmith. I
worked at Burns & Jordan's camp
as a blacksmith. The camp was on
the R. & P. railroad. This railroad
connects with the Trail railroad and
the trail railroad connects with the
narrow gauge running to Rossland.
The narrow gauge road runs into
Rossland. Rossland is, I believe,
an incorporated city. I worked for
Peter McVeigh on the extension of
this road  opposite  Robson.
This road connects with the Trail
road. I claim $71.36 due me from
defendants for labor as a blacksmith. This sum is now due me.
I received the time check, Exhibit
"A", from Bums & Jordan. I demanded payment of time check from
paymaster of the defendants and he
said it was not payable until the
20th of September, I previously
received a check which is produced
for $43.40, dated August 20th,
180.8, No. 1430, marked Exhibit
"B", the same kind of work and
under the same contract as I received a check marked "A", and
$71.35 is now due and still owing
me.
Examined by Mr. Woodman :
Burns & Jordan's camp is about
three miles from Brooklyn ; do not
know the distance from camp to
Nelson. The contract for C. & W.
Ry. starts from near Robson as far
as I know. I do not know of any
connection between the R. & P.
and C. & W. roads except a short
line I worked on last summer, which
was completed before the contract
from Robson to M Idway was commenced.
Cross-examined by Mr. Buck :
The Road from Robson to Nelson
connects by boat. 1 have bought a
ticket from Nelson to Robson over
this road. 1 bought the ticket at
Robson, which is an incorporated
town.
In answer to Mr. Woodman : I
do not know the name of the road
from Robson to Nelson. I do
not know how long ago this road
was completed. The nearest incorporated city or town is, I believe,
Nelson.       (Signed,)
Richard Crozier,
the decision.
There being no further evidence,
Mr. Woodman claimed the court
had no jurisdiction and filed the following objection :
Sections one to nine inclusive being the only ones in this act bearing
upon this particular case relating to
the relation of employer and employee, and especially mentioned in
section ten, that this case cannot be
tried by this court, they not having
jurisdiction owing to the fact that
the claim of the plaintiff is for labor
performed more than three miles
from any incorporated city or town.
We therefore ask that the case be
dismissed with costs to plaintiff.
Mr. Buck objected on the ground
that the objection was too late and
should have been taken before the
evidence was gone into, and argued
thai the line on which the plaintiff
worked was a continuation and part
of works undertaken in an incorporated city.
The court adjourned for an hour,
when the following decision was
given:
We have carefully considered the
evidence and the points raised on
both sides. As to the questions
raised by Mr. Woodman for the defence, and objected to by Mr. Buck
for the plaintiff it is unnecessary
for us to go into as it was part of
the argument for the defence and
would in any case have been necessary for us to consider in arriving
at a decision.
It therefore only remains for us
to consider the case on its merits,
and we have, after most careful consideration, no alternative on the
evidence, but to arrive at the following conclusions:
1 st���No part of the work on contract held by defendant is within
three miles of any incorporated city
or town. ���
2nd���The contract of Burns &
Jordan, whereon the plaintiff was
working���as admitted by his own
evidence���is not within three miles
of any incorporated city or town.
Section 10 of the Truck Act, 1898,
states: "This shall only apply to
any workman employed altogether,
or in part, or on works or undertakings situated wholly or in part in
any incorporated city or town, or
within three miles thereof.
These facts being established,
and as the plaintiff rested his case
on the said act, we are obliged to
dismiss the complaint, costs of
court to be paid by plaintiff.

������������!����������������&*������������&������������
"I declare," said Capt. G. G.
Smith to the Observer, "I don't
know what to think of my friend,
Gen. Alger, Uncle Sam's Secretary
of War, since the press and public
have been jumping on him so emphatically of late for alleged irregularities in his department. I lumbered with the general years ago in
Michigan, when he had not gotten
up so high in the world. Many a
time has his wife cooked "sow
belly" for us in camp, when I was
worth more than Alger several times
over. And I want to tell you, that
notwithstanding all that has been
said against him, I believe that a
better man never lived."
Captain Smith is now timber
cruiser and inspector, and general
assistant in the field to Engineer
John F. Stevens, with Mann, Foley
Bros. & Larson. He will have
charge of the yards at Genelle &
Co.'s mill as soon as active bridge
construction begins. He is an old
railroad man, having been at it for
19 years, and is now in his element.
But he cannot stand it to see his
old friend Alger severely criticised
in all quarters,
��� ������
No one believed that the water in
the lake was going down so fast
that there was not room for two
boats to pass, but from the collision
of the Rossland and the Fawn last
Thursday morning, in which the
latter small tug was cut in two,
such appears to be the case.
