ISSTILLBUILDING
Busy   Brooklyn   Is   Growing
Every Week.
MORE NEW STRUCTURES
Additions Being Made to the Anderson and Windsor Hotels-
Other Improvements In Town.
Anyone who thinks that building
opeiations have ceased in busy
Brooklyn should take a stroll
through the town any of these frosty
mornings. He would be agreeably
surprised at the evidences apparent
that the place is not yet large
enough to accommodate the incoming multitudes with which every
boat touching here is crowded.
Among the new structures in the
building line, one of the most useful
will be a good sized addition to the
Anderson House, This will occupy
the open space to the north of the
present building, and will be 22x40
feet in size. It will increase the
sleeping accommodations of the
hotel by about 50. Lumber has
been ordered, and the work will be
pushed with all possible expedition
as soon as it arrives. When com.
pleted the hotel will be able to take
care of 125 people each night.
Manager Shanks, of the Windsor
hotel, is putting on a 14x50 addition en the south side of the building, now nearly completed. He has
also put a lunch counter in the front
of the building.
E. Parris and Co. have put on a
14x14 addition to their store, necessitated by the increase in their
business.
Mann, Foley Bros, and Larson
have this week put up sleeping
quarters for the men employed in
their various stores and warehouses,
and also put up another large barn
on the hill,
D. A. Munro, the blacksmith,
has put up a commodious house,
12x20, for a residence for the
winter.
Shaw and Shaw have built an addition to their warehouse, and a
number of other improvements are
being made
OVER THE LINE.
Far Away Pastures Have Quite a
Green Aspect.
It is quite the thing nowadays to
take a trip over the construction
line as far as Cascade City or beyond. The spirit of restlessness
prevails to a large extent in the
human race, and they are always
looking fur something a little better.
Distant pastures always look
green, and as a rule the farther
away they are the greener they
look. It is interesting and significant to note, however, that most of
the travellers return with a better
opinion than ever of busy Brooklyn.
A well known citizen remarked to
the News man that "the farther
away they went the greener the
men."
Every day sees a party start out
to look over the line, and incidentally note progress on the construction. As a rule they are pleased
with the country over in Yale dis.
trict and like the appearance of the
live towns in that part of the
country.
Among others who have recently
gone over there, spying out the
land, were S. B. Yuill, J. H. Bolan
and W. H. Cooper, who went
through to Midway and return. S.
E. Manuel, Mrs. Manuel and Mr.
Kirkpatrtck, of Hunter Bros., started out on the same trip last Thursday. J. H. Bolan, of the Brooklyn
House, made the journey and while
away opened another hotel, this
time at Grand Forks. It is called
the Montgomery House, and has
Victor Swanson as the capable manager. Besides these, several others
will satisfy their curiosity by a
similar trip, to see how the land
lies. It is noticeable that no diminution in the number of business
houses can be seen as a result of
these pleasure trips.
OEM RESTAURANT REOPENED.
Will Once More be Run by Lewis
Orr.
Today the Gem Restaurant, opposite the Windsor hotel, opens up
once more, after being closed for a
week or two on account of illness
of Lewis Orr, its well known and
experienced proprietor.
Mr. Orr states that he will give a
chicken dinner tomorrow (Sunday)
and will continue to conduct one ot
the most popular eating houses in
the city. The prices will be reasonable, as in the past, and personal
attention will at all times be given
to the business.
Some Very Pine Shots.
The shooting gallery of Dell Ferguson, adjoining the Windsor hotel,
is growing in popularity every day,
and some fine marksmen are being
developed among our sporting
citizens.
Still Another Townsite,
People come and people go, but,
verily, the townsite boomer goes on,
like Tennyson's brook, forever. The
latest is to be called Monte Carlo,
and is located just across the international boundary line, about two
miles from Cascade city. Already
it is said that a hotel will actually
locate there, although the platting
is scarcely finished.
BLIND PIGOERS IN LIMBO.
Wm. Dove Arrested Twice and Now
Serving Time.
Two men, McCauley and Wm.
Dove, of McRae's landing, on
Christina lake, were arrested last
week for selling liquors along the
tote road without a license. They
were tried in Grand Forks and fined
$15 each, no extra charge being
made for the lecture administered
by the justices.
Drive was arrested again a few
days later on a similar charge, and
this time, as the evidence was quite
conclusive, no leniency was shown,
He was fined $50 and costs and two
months at hard labor, and was
taken to the provincial jail at Midway, where he is now serving out
his sentence. It is quite evident
that the Yale authorities are determined to break up the practice of
selling liquor without a license.
HE WAS DROWNED
George   Richardson   Met    a
Watery Grave.
WORKED FOR M'MARTIN
Body Found Floating in Front ot
City Last Tuesday Morning--
Coroner's Inquest.
Working the Mountain Chief.
The Golden Gate Development
Co., composed of Rossland capitalists, which recently purchased the
Mountain Chief group of mineral
claims for $10,000, located just over
the hill from Brooklyn, evidently
mean business. They have had tests
made at the Trail smelter, and have
been granted a favorable rate of
treatment by that concern. Mr. D.
B. Bogle, who recently visited the
group, is enthusiastic over the rich
peacock and gray copper showings
of the property and states that development will begin in two weeks'
time. It is the intention to ship the
ore taken out in opening up the
mine.
When Lewis Nelson was rowing
up the lake from Burns and Jordan's
camp, where he is employed, last
Tuesday morning about 9 o'clock,
he discovered the body of a man
floating near the shore, about 100
yards south of the C. P. R. dock in
front of this city. Provincial Constable Forrester was called and the
remains were taken to the company's morgue on the hill.
A search of the body revealed
nothing whatever of value, but a
hospital receipt, issued to George
Richardson, and dated Sept. 22,
was found, signed by Contractor
John McMartin. The latter was in
town and identified the man, saying
that he last saw him when he was
paid off on Sept. 22.
Coroner Arthur was telegraphed
for to Nelson, and the inquest was
held by him on Wednesday. The
jury was as follows: W. B. Will-
cox, foreman, and Messrs O'Brien,
Bolan, Walker, McGregor and Petersen. After viewing the remains
and hearing the testimony of Dr.
Francis J. Ewing, who conducted
the post-mortem examination, the
jury rendered a verdict of death
from drowning. No marks of any
kind were found on the body. The
burial took place on Thursday.
Richardson was a man of perhaps
30 or 35 years of age and came
from Ottawa, having a sister living
at Hintonburg, near that city.
While no one seems to have seen
him the day before the accident,
there is good grounds for believing
that he fell or walked from the dock
and was chilled through before he
could save himself. The doctor
could not tell whether he had been
under the influence of liquor or not,
and there was no evidence whatever
of foul play.
Accommodation New Westminster
Exposition,
Parties attending the New Westminster Exhibition, if unable to get
accommodation at New Westminster, can do so with little difficulty
in Vaneouver. In order to facilitate
the movement to and from the exhibition the Canadian Pacific railway will run seven fast trains in
each direction between Vancouver
and New Westminster, the run to
occupy less than one hour in each
direction, with a fifty cent lure for
the round trip, this rate being available from Vancouver and New
Westminster.
By His Own Team.
Fred Hass, who is teaming for
Pat Welch, fell from his wagon near
the saw mill last week and the 3,500
pound load ran over one of his legs,
crushing it badly. He was brought
to town by the Royal Stage line
and is slowly recovering at the
company's hospital.
Royal Stage Line,
Messrs. Cormack and Livermore,
who inaugurated the Royal Stage
line between Brooklyn and Cascade
City a short time ago, have arranged
for a regular semi-weekly service
between the two places. Stage will
leave Brooklyn every Monday and
Thursday and Cascade City oe
Wednesday and Saturday. As the
ravel is bound to increase betwenn
he two places, these enterprising
gentlemen will doubtless do a good
business. The passenger fare has
been fixed at $6 each way.
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,
anything made with ink and paper
Stole a Watch.
Mike Sullivan, who stole a watch
from Jas. Emigh on Sept. 15, was
captured at the Divide on Sunday,
and on Tuesday was sentenced by
Justices McGregor and Cooper to
think of it for six months in the
provincial jail.
Verdict, Accidental Death.
Dr. Arthur, coroner, impaneled
the following jury on Wednesday to
inquire into the death of Oscar
Johnson, who was killed by a blast
the previous Friday on Videen's
work: G. W. Owen, foreman, and
Messrs. Harber, Eastman, Brett,
Bradshaw and Thomas. The verdict was accidental death, and the
remains of the unfortunate man
were interred the following day.
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.
British Columbia's Advantages.
To the capitalist and investor
British Columbia presents one distinct advantage, viz., it is under the
British flag, and consequently every
assurance is given that laws will be
properly administered and every
protection given to life and property. It is also a great advantage
to the country that it has practically
been brought within easy touch of
the great commercial centres of the
world, since almost any portion of
it, except those outside railroad
communication, can be reached
within a fortnight after leaving
London, the greatest possible comfort being afforded moreover both
by boat and rail, to the traveller.���
London Times.
The Slocan In Rhyme.
Silver's up to 61 and makes for
62, and Slocan's heart is singing as
the birds are wont to do. For Slocan's hills are silver lined and
seamed with precious stuff, and
silver men who want a share can
have more than enough. So here's
to Slocan's silver, may it go to 99;
we'd like to 'ope a bottle, but we'd
rather 'ope a mine.���Nelson Miner.
CROW'S NEST COAL,
Shipments to be Made to all Smelters In British Columbia.
F. W. Peters, district freight
agent of the C. P, R., who has just
returned to Nelson from a trip over
the Crow's Nest road, says there
arc immense quantities of coal there,
the mines being probably the largest
in the world. It is of very fine
quality, bearing an unusually large
percentage of fixed carbon.
The coal is now being used on
the locomotives on the line, and
Mr. Haney says it is the best coal
for locomotives that he has ever
seen, as it generates more heat and
leaves fewer clinkers than any
other. The C. P. R. are now using
50 tons per day on their locomotives.
Mr. Peters has made arrangements for the immediate shipping of
five or six cars of coal, one of which
will be sent to each of the different smelters, and also a car to
each of the towns of Nelson, Rossland and Sandon. As the coal is .
peculiarly adapted for domestic purposes, house holders will thus have
an opportunity of testing it before
making their arrangements for the
winter.

CORONER NEEDED.
One of the pressing needs of
Brooklyn at this time is a coroner
or a deputy coroner. Wherever
railway construction is being carried
on accidents are inevitable, from
the very nature of the case, and the
prompt attendance of a coroner is
absolutely necessary.
At present the provincial police
notify the coroner at Nelson by
wire, when a fatal accident occurs.
It is fortunate if he receives the
message within 24 hours. As a
rule he does not. The result is
great delay in securing action in a
matter where it should be prompt.
Within the last two weeks the remains of one unfortunate victim had
to be kept here five days awaiting
an inquest, so that interment could
take place. This certainly is not as
it should be, notwithstanding the
fact that the coroner attends as
soon as possible. Of course, the
fact that Brooklyn is 18 miles distant from the nearest telegraph
office, operates to delay matters;
but this fact only emphasizes the
need of a resident coroner.
The Gold Commissioner has requested the Government to appoint
a coroner for Brooklyn, but the
powers that be seem to think the
official who resides at Nelson is
near enough. Were it not for the
circumstances as above stated, this
arrangement might do. As it is,
we should have one right here, in
case of need, which is likely to arise
any day in the future as in the past.
RESULTS OF PLEBISCITE.
The returns from the recent plebiscite, taken all over the Dominion
on the question of prohibition, give
the measure a small majority, all
the provinces voting in favor of it
except Quebec. In each province
the vote was light, and shows that
the people' in general have not as
yet given this important question
serious consideration.
It is evident, h wever, that there
are a large number of citizens who
do believe in prohibition, and were
sufficiently interested and posted to
vote intelligently on the subject
The real tug of war is to come later,
if the taw itself is ever really referred to the people. Then there will
be some old time campaigning on
both sides that will be interesting.
It is a debatable question as to
whether prohibition would really
benefit the country, as many good
people would have us believe. As
a rule, wherever it has been tried,
it has not scored an unequivocal
success. The pro and con of the
matter will doubtless be set forth at
great length if the question ever
gets before the people.
It is perhaps one of the highest
of compliments to pay the News for
several of our esteemed contemporaries to quote from our columns.
But when whole articles and even
columns of matter are taken and
used without credit of any kind, we
draw the line. This has been done
repeatedly by several otherwise respectable journals, and hereafter
when the same liberty is taken
they may expect to receive some
free advertising on account of it.
It costs time and money to gather
news such as we publish, and if
quoting contemporaries do not give
us credit, we will remember them
through our columns. Editors who
do this sdrt of thing would not put
their hand in your pocket, yet they
migkt as well as to steal your
matter, lock, stock and barrel, and
palm it off as original. A word to
the wise is said to be sufficient.
That was a gracious compliment
of Lord Aberdeen's to our American
cousins, when, on the occasion recently of opening the Central Canada fair at Ottawa, he complied
with a request to pin a miniature
stars and stripes to his coat, and
wore the souvenir all the rest of the
afternoon. Canada's Governor-
General has a habit of doing graceful acts.
The Arrow Lake metropolis is
more prosperous today than ever,
slanderers to the contrary notwithstanding. When one cannot secure a place to lay one's weary head
o' nights, as at present, times cannot fail to be good.
Admiral Dewey did a good job
at Manila in more than one way.
It was worth going there for, if the
only fruits of his victory had been
the $1,500,000 worth of Spanish
shipping which he captured.
Now that transcontinental passenger rates have been restored to
the old figures, the traffic is falling
off for a time. But there is no falling off in the traffic to busy Brooklyn.
��� ���
8      THE OBSERVATORY.     2
"0 wad the power 0' Kiftie Kit' ua
To lea ourst'lvea an itlters lee Ul,"
Our genial townsite owner, Wm.
Parker, had occasion to visit Nelson the other day. While there, as
has been his custom while acting as
volunteer postmaster, he bethought
himself to lay in a stock of postage
stamps, to accommodate the citizens
of this town. The clerk was evidently a new one, and was surprised
at the large munber asked for. But
on learning that they were desitned
for use in the new and bustling
town of Brooklyn-on-the-lake, this
vendor of Her Majesty's likenesses
at once became interested. In the
course of his chat, he innocently remarked, "And Parker���he went
broke," of course not knowing the
identity of his auditor. Mr. Parker
is himself authority for the statement that he was so much amused
that he had perforce to leave the
locality at once to hide his great
hilarity.
��� ��� ���
In contradistinction to this tale is
another one, also told by Father
Parker, anent a visit to Revelstoke
early in the summer, when Brooklyn town lots were selling like hot
cakes, and prosperity's sun shone
exceedingly bright. In a store,
where he had occasion to do some
business, an old lady, not knowing
him, innocently said, in speaking of
Brooklyn: "And Parker, the former
poor prospector, is now rich, they
tell me."
��� ���'���
All of which merely goes to show
that things are not always what
they seem. As a matter ot fact,
Mr. Parker, whose friends are
legion, is neither rich, nor is he
broke; but he is doing a nice quiet
business here and making a living,
But the most interesting part of the
above stories lie in the fact that Mr.
Parker enjoys telling the jokes on
himself fully as much as his listeners.
��� ��� ���
The number of persons who are
addicted to the townsite platting
habit hereabouts seems to be steadily growing. Whether the disease
is contagious or not, it is hard to
say, but it is steadily and surely
spreading. Of course all new lines
of railway are fair fields for the
operations of these people, and they
have not overlooked the Robson-
Penticton line. It goes without
saying that but a very small percentage of these new paper towns
ever reach the dignity of having
even a postoffice, let alone being
placed on any but their own boom
maps.
��� ���*������
In this connection the Observer
recalls an experience he had with a
townsite on the projected line of a
railway several years since. The
promoter���the schemer who wished
to get a rake-off for selling the land
���had a straight tip that the road
would positively strike a certain
point and be built at once. With
several others the Observer hastened
to get in on the "ground floor" as
one of the new townsite owners.
The property was secured and
platted, but the railway left it 20
miles to one side. The Observer
lost his several hundred dollars.
Sometimes he thinks the experience
was a valuable one, even if somewhat expensive at the time.

ANOTHER BODY FOUND.
-Description of the  Unfortunate--
Evldeatly ��� Railroad Man.
The body of a man whose iden
tity has not been established, was
found in the Columbia Tuesday of
this week, just below Trail.
Arthur Schneider was coming up
the river in a canoe Tuesday, and
found the body, face down, in the
eddy at the brickyard. He wen!
to town and notified Officer Devitt,
who made an examination for signs
of violence, but found none. The
coroner was notified, and as au inquest was not deemed necessary,
burial was ordered. Indications
were that the body had been in the
water perhaps six weeks.
The man was apparently five feel
ten inches, with a normal weight of
165 pounds. He had a small moustache, prominent teeth, and on the
little finger wore a gold ring with a
double heart. He wore a new pair
of shoes, two pair ol trousers and a
negligee blue-check shirt. In the
pockets were some samples of silk
ribbon, and a bunch of keys. There
was nothing in the way of papers
to determine the man's identity.
The remains were interred Wednesday morning and in the absence
of a minister, Officer Devitt read
the Church of England burial service.
A description of the man has been
sent to Revelstoke. to see if he is
one of several recently drowned in
the upper Columbia.
Early Marriages.
The farther south one goes, the
earlier one finds marriages take
place. A census was taken lately
in Algeria, and it was found that
the youngest Arab married man
was 12 years old, and that there
were very many boys who were
married at 13 and 14, while some at
1 5 years of age had several wives.
There is a youthful Algerian widower of 15, and a divorced husband
of the same age. Girls are still
more precocious, and are sometimes married when only 11 years
old, though 11 is the more usual
age. There are 189 widows of 15,
and 1,176 divorces of the same age.
Good Feeling Prevails.
Along the border line between
Canada and the United States the
feeling of neighborliness has ever
been strong, proving that peoples,
like individuals, have .only got to
come in contact to like one another
and to cause to disappear the silly
prejudices that find their root in not
knowing. It is along the border,
where the facts are best known,
that the wisdom and desirability of
reciprocity in trade between the two
countries are best known and understood, because it is there that the
operation of the tariffc is seen and
felt in full force. No man has yet
been able to give a good reason for
the existence or continuance of the
high tariff walls that fence oil' the
United States and Canada ; divide
two peoples speaking the same language, enjoying the same civil and
religious liberties, and actuated by
the same grand, expansive Anglo-
Saxon ideas in commerce, industry
and arts. The feeling in the United
States that there should be reciprocity with Canada has spread greatly
since the outburst of good-feeling
between Britain and the States a
few months ago, and we find newspapers published far from the international boundary line speaking in
the kindest terms of Canada, and
on this great subject.���Victoria
Times.
Tin Plate Industry
The tin plate industry in the
United States has advanced with
sufficient rapidity to cause one of
the largest tin plate establishments
in the old world to dispose of its
establishment at Swansea, Wales,
and to commence the establishment
of a similar plant in Pittsburg, Pa.
���Seattle Times.
Rode the Goat
Hugo Heldom, of Tacoma, has
brought suit for $15,000 against
the order of Foresters, for alleged
injuries received while being initiated. He claims he was subjected
to a series of electric shocks which
paralyzed him and rendered him incapable of work.
A USELESS   VOTE.
It  Is  Said   the  Government   Will
Ignore the Results.
A despatch from Ottawa says:
Judging from present returns on
the prohibition vote, barely one-
fourth of those entitled lo vote gave
expression to their opinion in
the matter. As a consequence it is
learned that the government will
ignore the whole proceedings. A
lew ministers in town are reticent
and decline to speak for publication,
but the fact is known that no notice
will be taken of the vote. It is
pointed out that the largest majority
recorded is that against prohibition
in Quebec, and that apathy was
general among the voters.
While the prohibition plebiscite
brought out a vote largely in favor
of the prohibition of the liquor
traffic, there are many difficulties
presented as good reasons for not
passing a prohibitory law. A
Seattle exchange says that should
the attempt be made to prohibit entirely, Canada is likely to have the
same experience as those states
which have tried it. It has been an
utter failure. It has been attempted
in Maine, Iowa and Kansas, but it
is not pretended that the law was
enforced, and it has become a dead
letter, even when not abandoned.
The objection seems to be less to
the purpose than to the principle of
restricting personal liberty. Opposition to prohibition does not come
from the dissolute alone, but chiefly
from those who lead temperate lives,
but who object to being compelled
to do or not to do anything which
infringes upon a personal freedom.
Both for the reason that prohibition fails to prohibit and because
the attempt is an arbitrary interference with a long established privilege, any measure of this character
is bound to be a failure in practice
and obnoxious in principle. No
man who is in favor of prohibition
is interfered with by existing laws;
he has full liberty to prohibit himself as long as he chooses, but when
he undertakes to compel others to
do as he desires to do himself, he
refuses them the liberty he desires
for himself. So far as intemperance
is concerned, it is a matter for
moral influence, and not legislative
interference.
A Prosperous Paper.
The Rossland Miner is keeping
pace with the progress of the city
whose prosperity it represents, and
will hereafter issue a paper seven
days a week, with eight pages Sundays and Tuesdays. Rossland's
future is no longer a matter of uncertainty. It will be the greatest
inland city in British Columbia and
the richest mining centre in the
Northwest.
It Assays Well.
The strike in the Columbia and
Kootenay will prove a great thing

the 27-foot vein has increased in
