On Hi Foothill. Some Day Will Thrive a
Second Butte.
Wo have never heard a more
glowing word painting of the wealth
and possibilities of Shamrock
mountain than that given ye editor
last Thursday hy D. C. Beach an
the twain waited for the westbound
passenger at Fife. Mr Beach says
Shamrock is one vast body of high
grade ore���that is running from
$25 up in values. Pointing to the
hill just enst of Fife, he said:
"Over that hill, there will be
a greater city than Butte. We
may and we may not live to see it,
but it will be there all the same
Some day Shamrock mountain will
overshadow every other camp in the
Boundary, Phoenix not excepted."
The Beach brothers are men of
many years experience. There are
two claims on the summit of the
mountain the Thistle and Shamrock which are owned by Mr. D. C.
Beach, R. Dalby Morkill and a
John McKane.. On these claims the
Beach brothers will commence work
in a day or two, being here for supplies yesterday.
A Nelaon Doj'a Peculiar Tastes.
Engineer McNab, of the C. P. R.,
is in four bits and a beer check, says
the Nelson Miner. The two pieces
of metal, one of Bilver and the
other brass, we're' taken from the
stomach of his spaniel dog "Bess"
on Sunday afternoon by Drs. La Ban
and Armstrong. They had been
lodged in the intestines in such a
way that only an operation would
save the life of the dog and the operation was performed, It was a
very delicate operation and performed with ae much care as though
it had been a human being, Tbe
medical profession were much interested in the event. The doctors
who handled the knives did their
work quickly and skillfully, so
skillfully indeed that the dog was
traveling around the next day as
lively as ever. The beer check
called for one glass of beer at the
Log Cabin saloon, Seattle. The
dog seems to have an abnormal
appetite for coins nr anything tbat
looks like a coin. Mr. McNab .ays
if she ever got loose in a bank she
would break the institution before
she got through.
Hit Heart Beati Mote a Bullet.
A bullet in a living, pulsating
human heart was seen when W. C.
Fuchs, in his laboratory, turned
two Rontgen rays upon the chest
ofC. B.Nelson of Cadillac,  Mich.
Mr. Nelson has carried this
unique souvenir of a muderous attack for more than four years, for
at the age of 35 he is strong as an
ox and full of health and vigor.
He endured life without the slightest inconvenience from the bullet
in his heart. At the time of the
accident the surgeons told Nelson
he had one chance in a thousand
to live, and that an operation
would mean a quicker death. Nelson took the chance. He said he
would live nnd carry the bullet
with him. To the wonder of the
medical world his prophecy proved
true.    He left the hospital in a
month, and has been in good health
ever since.
The examination showed that
the position of the bullet has not
changed iu the slightest degree.

A lady, while on a visit to China
last year, was dining with some
English residents there and was delighted with the cooking of the various dishes presented, more especially with some particularly tasty
pnties. She expressed a great desire
to know how they were made, but
her hostess, to whom she Spoke,
laughingly replied: "Don't ask me,
I know nothing about it; my Chi.
nese cook does everything himself.
I have never seen him making
them, but if you are very anxious
I shall take you to the kitchen tomorrow, and you can watch operations for yourself." My friend eagerly agreed, and a party was
formed to go into the kitchen and
watch John Chinaman making his
celebrated paties. What, however,
was the horror of the audience,
when after deftly mixing the paste
and carefully dividing it into separate portions, he look each piece
up in turn, solemnly spat into it
and then proceeded to roll it vigorously into the required shape on
his naked cheBt.���Exchange.

The entrance into British Columbia of American railroads will
not have the effect of taking our
ores across tbe line for smelting
purpoBeB. The Provincial government will see to that. Let American enterprise come and do something toward developing the country. English operators are too
slow. As an evidence of their
methods we have only to cite the
waterworks here. It seems to take
the slow-going old country man a
quarter of a century to make up his
mind what he wants to ilo, and another iwenty-five yearB is consumed in getting at it. Give us a little
.American vim and dash; we need
���to be inspired with more energy
than we possess at present.

Railway Matters at Victoria.
Victoria, B. C, March 21.���The
premier and members of the executive council of British Columbia
gave an influential deputation,
headed by tbe mayor of Victoria,
most satisfactory assurances ibis
morning that the policy which they
proposed to follow in connection
with the construction of the Coast-
Kootenay railway would be not
only iu the interest of the province,
but of tbe city of Victoria. The
deputation was made up of representative business and professional
men in the city appointed at a
masB meeting which parsed a resolution in favor of a competative line.
In pressing for the building of an
independent and competive line
from the coast to the interior of the
province, the mayor read the following telegram which had been
received this morning by E. V.
Bodwell, who represented the V. V.
& E. railway in the matter; "New
York, March 31.���If you think advisable you may announce that the
Great Northern railway and Mackenzie & Mann & Co. are equally
interested in the V. V. & E. railway

There were warm words from
Premier Dunsmuir in the house
Wednesday over the charge by a
lawyer of Victoria, E. V. Bodwell,
at a large mass meeting in favor
of the revival of the V. V. & E.
charter to Kootenay.
Mr. Bodwell said the premier
and the executive were tinder control of the C. P. R. Mr. Dunsmuir
repudiated the charge, and said he
had only one interest in ihe house.
That was the interest of British Columbia, and he would not Bell the
province for all the corporations
and companies in it. He also said
that the government was quite
ready to announce itB railway policy but it was thought better to
await information with regard to
the position the Ottawa cabinet intend taking re projected railways.
Mr, Martin concurred in the premier's position re charges, and applause came from both sides of tbe

. The fantastic picture of an ootu-
pug enatching away twenty billion
tons of coal and escaping with it
along the projected Crow's Nest
Southern Railway is so ridiculous
to those who understand the situation there that it can have hut
little effect in Eastern Canada. It
ctin have t>ut Utile effect in Eastern
Canada. It is painted here for
Eastern consumption and is intended to bolster up opposition to the
charter now before Parliament.
The railway cannot possibly injure
any existing interest iu British
Columbia and whoever obtains control of tho Crow's Nest I'ass cmil
measures cannot develop thoin except in tbe interest of British Columbia, It is only by becoming
great employers of labor, undercut
exporters of products that the owners of the coal measures can derive
any benefit, from them.
The fictitious octupus has now a
railway entering British Columbia
along the valley of the Kootenay
river���a branch that has been of
benefit to tbe districts served. The
proposed line will follow another
valley, The men who are willing
to build it without a subsidy or
other favors are the best judges of
whether or hot it is needed. They
want the road because it will cheapen the cost of hauling and enable
them to secure a proportionately
greater hold on the United States
market. Every obstruction thrown
in their way must detract from
their success in meeting United
States competition. All the scare
talk is promoted by the Canadian
Pacific Railway for the purpose of
preventing further encroachments
on its preserves..
There is no more excuse for preventing railway building than
there would be for preventing the
raw-hiding of ore, or the carrying
of goods by pack horses. Railways
are simple implements for carrying
products from where they are pro
duced to where they ..are wanted
and, while infinite harm may be
occasioned by obstructing them, no
injury can result from opening up
means of transportation. The only
effect that the proposed line can
have on the Crow's Nest coal fields
is to open up an extensive market;
and that is exactly what the industry requires.^Vancouver World

A New
Feature  in
The Pullman company now
operates two grades of sleeping care
via the Rio Granite Western railway. The ordinary sleepers are
entirely new, and the berths, both
upper and lower, are fitted up complete with mattresses, blankets,
sheets, pillows, curtins, etc., with
stoves arranged for making tea,
coffee, etc., requiring nothing to be
furnished by ibo passengers. Uniformed Pullman porters are in
charge of the cars, who are required
to keep them in good order and attend tn the wants and comforts of
the passengers. The cars are very
handsome and commodious, and
while not so elegant, are just as
comfortable as the standard or
palace sleepers. Both first and
second-claBS passengers are permitted to occupy these cars on payment of the Pullman berth rates,
which are less than half the rates
charged in the regular Pullman
palace sleeping cars.
The ordinary sleepers are carried
daily on trains via Rio Grand
Western Railway between Denver,
���San Francisco and Portland. On
.five days in each week the sleepers
are run through between Los Angeles and San Francisco, or Portland and Denver, Omoha, Chicago
and Boston.
