The ubiquitous prospector is appearing
in Southeast Kootenay in largo numbers
His appearance in auy region spoil settles, fur a time at least, the future of a
country as a mineral zone The prospector was numerous here last year for
the first time since the old placer days.
Rain interfered sadly with their work
and many quit in disgust, saying the
country was " no good." Others stayed,
and Ihey are now reluming iu force to
develop the finds of last year. Most of
the work in the very near vicinity will be
south and west of here, the whole of
that region showing well In gold, silver
copper aud lead.

II. W. Melton came In Saturday evening from the Copper Belle, on which

Surface crosscut. Mr. Mellon bad a few
pounds of ore which he believes to be a
fair average of 78 feet across the ledge,
which gives strong indications of being
hilly too feet wide. With a smelter at
Cranbrook most of the ore could be
profitably treated right now. All mining

of a show of re-elcctu-i), and that it was I
only time thrown nway iu making a fight I
against him.    The ijuotat'on used by the ;
Prospector a few weeks ago-—''you don't j
throw stones at n tree that lias no apples
on it," in answering an attack made by
the Warduer Iuleri.ational on the towu j
of Fort Steele, is very fitting upon this
occasion.   If Col.  Baker stands such a '
slight chance of re-election, why is the \
Prospector attacking him so bitterly?-—;
JVIOyiO Leader, May 31,
[Special Victoria Carrw|Hinitaoca oftto Itttit-
VlCTORIA, lb C, May JO—Today the
longest session in the history of British
Columbia legislation came to a close.
There were, it is true, two longer sessions than Ibe one just closed ; that i.s,
counting the time from the dny of opening to the dav of closing: but counting
the number of days upon which parliament actually sat and did business, the
session of 1S9S is a record-breaker. It is
also considered from the character of the
legislation probably the most memorable one, if we leave ont the one in which
the confederation was brought about, or
tbe other only second iu importance at
which the Settlement Act was pissed.
Apart from a constitutional point of
view no oilier session has affected Interest of so comprehensive a character or
achieved results so important to the future of this province. When it is
sidereil that during the last 10 years the
province has directly or Indirectly thro1
tbe instrumentality of the legislature
brought into existence lines of railway
actually constructed or under construe
tion or iu immediate contemplation to
the extent of 1600 miles, involving.'! capital expenditure of nearly (40,000,000
one can come to some conclusion as to
the magnitude of development that h:
taken place, and the people have reason
to be proud that a young province like
British Columbia with a limited populi
tion has had lhe courage to face such
serious problems of communication as
have confronted it.
What the Canadian Pacific railway wa:
to the whole of Canada, the several line:
of railway provided for during the bite
session are tn British Columbia. It is
not a lime for faltering. Tlieeyes of the
world are upon the Yukon and the min
end and other resources of British Columbia and in order that the province
might be in a position lo take advantage
of the great idilux of capital, and to turn
10 advantage ihe popuUtlou that is imminent, it was necessary to act promptly
aud courageously. It may appear a large
undertaking for the province, but nol bo
great in fact as tbe Canadian Pacific railway appeared lo the whole of Canada.
Canada's destiny was assured by lhe completion of tbat road and her practical
independence secured, To Biitish Columbia it means that the tiemendous
wealth of minerals distributed so widely
over its surface will become available ami
that British Columbia will take n place
in the Confederation with and greater
than ihat of Canada in the British Umpire.
Prom ibis point of view, therefore, not
to speak of the other important measures which have been passed, the session
just closed must become a memorable
one. This sentiment was very well expressed by the Hou. lhe Premier in his
few farewell remarks to the House ou the
evening of the lylli inst., after the orders of the day hnd been exhausted and
the practical work of the session was
completed, He said that the session had
been held iu a very eventful epoch of tbe
province, and itself constituted au epoch
of that history, They had In a very long
aud arduous session, after careful consideration, passed many important acts—*
so important, indeed, that they were
destined to hold a prominent place in
the pages of Biltlsb Columbia's future
historian, lit fer ring particularly to the
I all way legislation, he said that he con-
sideicd il. and the sentiment was reechoed by the members present, an honour for them all lo have been members
of the Route and to have taken part iu
the work of giving these measures effect
for the benefit of the country; and he
personally would always consider it the
grealest honour of bis life.
It was most appropriate under such
circumstances that the Premier was able
lo announce the important news to the
House that the railway Irom Rosslaud to
tlie coast was lo be commenced immediately aud that the line to Teslin Lake
from a seaport of British Columbia would
bein progi ess wilhin lhe next few weeks,
in fact work was already under wny.    lt
is uot often lu the case of great undertakings of this kind ihat a Government
can announce tcsulls so quickly and Can
say 10 the public—"This thing is already
taking place." It might buvc been made
iu the hands of n sensational politician
a very spectacular denouement of the
work of the closing days o( a session of
parliament; but the Hon. Mr, Turner is
of too practical a turn of mind to turn
to political effect such opportunities ns
these. Very modestly hesaid that these
works of development will open up the
country, increase the population and give
belter prospects for the success and happiness ol tbe people. That of itself was
a great honor,—une that the members
should (ill appreciate, and one in which
he was quite willing lhat Uie members
of lhe Opposition Should share with the
Government.
The feeling expressed at the close of
the session was in a remarkable degree j
one  of good   fellowship   and   personal
friendship.    The Premier rcfened toil'
very appropriately when he snid at the
lime Ihey had fought ami at times they
hnd fraternized, but he was sure I hey had
pailed with feelings of respect nnd goodwill for one another.     To these seuti-'
menls Mr. Setnliii, the leader of lhe Op''
position,  gave a hearty acquiescence, j
The Hon. the Provincial Secretary did a
very graceful thing nl the close in referring to the lender of the Opposition wj'.lt
whom, he said, he had sat for many years
in the House and had never known him
to make a personal attack upon a fellow
: member, an example that might with
profit be followed by those on both sides
i of the House. Such a compliment com*
I ing from a prominent member of the
! Government and so gracefully executed,
speaks volumes for the general high
standing ol personal and political ethics
in the Britisli Columbia Parliament,
The   ceremony   of   prorogation    was
characterized by no special feature. The
interest displayed was eveu less than
usual, if we were to Judge hy the attend*
mice. TI is Honour was attended by only
one ald-de camp and the ceremony was
of the plainest possible character.
As soon as possible alter the House
prorogued tbe members will return to
ilieir respective constituencies, and the
fight may be said to be now fairly on.
Within the next two months will be experienced tbe hottest political contest iu
the history of lhe Province. The Issues
nre more involved than they have ever
been before The Government had steadily refused to recognize or encourage the
introduction of Dominion politics in the
fight, and while tbey wi,l nol be altogether absent the lines of cleavage will
be mainly provincial. The Government
1 is standing ou iis record, which, despite
[ the several minor efforts at sensationalism, remains untainted by scandal. Pew
'governments of Canada can make the
boast that in a long term of years of
power such ns the present hns succeeded
to there has been no grave abuse of office and no acts of corruption to defend.
The record is one of progressive policy
iu the interests of development of the
Province, which has been continuous for
some years past. Perhaps no other Province in the Dominion cau show any
thing like the advances in all directions
—in population industry, trade, etc.,
that British Columbia can There can
be hut liitle doubt of the result of the
contest. The Opposition, whi'f earning
for itself a record of respectability, is regarded generally in the light of mediocrity by the public, and generally does
not posness such qualifications as would
entitle it to the confidence of the public
as leaders and directors of the affairs of
the country. Personally, no one can find
fault with such men as the Messrs. Semlin, Sword, horsier, Williams, McPlier*
sou, Hume, Graham, Vidder nnd Ktdd,
all respectable men and good citizens,
but who so far in lhe political arena have
developed no qualities that would suggest them as successors to the present
administration.

The ninendraenl to the Constitution
proposed by Senator Hoar ehanglug
the (hue for the commencement of the
Presidential uud Senatorial terms from
.March -I to April 30 has been the subject of discussion for years. If the
amendment Bhould be adopted it would
extend the term ol' Preshleut McKlnley
io April BO, 1001, nml nlso the terms of
the Senators and Representatives lo
ihe same date. There Is no doubt that
ihe change ought to be universally
favored. The particular reason, of
course, for advocating Ibe change is ihe
luclemency of lhe early March weather in Washington, which has spoiled so
mnny Inauguration ceremonies, lu the
latitude of Washington it Is a very rare
tiling io huve weathor that is favorable
for outdoor festivities on March 4. To
the younger generation, which do nol
take the trouble to look Into history,
lhe selection of a blustering dny In
March Instead of a balmy day in .Mny
nt- .lutic for Inauguration lias always
been a Btibject of wonder, lt came
about in this way. After Ihe present
constitution was adopted the old congress fixed the first Wednesday In

Although the rush to Alaska mny bo
said to have onrly jnst begun, n condition of affairs 1ms already developed in
Dyea und skagway which promises to
disappoint thu expectations of thousands of eager gold seekers. The trails
across thu GMlkoot and White pns90S
nro practically Impassable liecntiBe of
the frequent nnd severe storms, und
will not bo in good condition until
about the first of April. Tho result is
(hut thousands ol men and thouBunda
of tons of supplies and mining outfits
nre  crowded   together on   this  side of
tlm summit und have already reached
such number and quantity ns to create
a blockade.
It bus been generally understood
(but it was foolish to go up to that
country earlier than March with tlio
oxpci'tnliim of crossing the passes, nnd
that one who did so would simply subject himself to a long wait, to needless
hardships nml possible sickness while
consuming supplies whioh Bhould bo
kept for service lu the gold HcldB. Notwithstanding thin l'nct, travel begun in
January and lias continued through
February, nn average of n steamer u
day having landed men and freight nt
Dyea nml Skagway, Those who took
this early start did ho because they
feared a blockade uud worn anxious to
get over the summit, expecting lo wait
nt the lakes for thu opening of thu river
to navigation. Tbu blockade they
hoped to escape bus come upon them
uml they nro not over the summit.
Many buvo spout a mouth of hardship
and toil uml aro worse u1? because oI
it than are tho newest arrivals
Thero are not loss limn 011,000 people
In Dyea and Skagway encamped along
thu trails ns fur as tbe weather conditions huve permitted thom to advance,
only a fow miles at thu most. Tbo
quantity of supplies, outfits, hunts, machinery, oto., averages not less titan u
ton to oaoh mun. This average will
be kept up during tho month of Mnroh,
and by the first oi' April, when the
work of getting over the summit will
begin iu earnest, a motlerittu estimate
of the number of men ami quantity of
freight that will hu assemblud thero in

The only thing that hns been accomplished on tbe Skagway trail to make
it more passable than it wns Inst summer bus been tbo building <>f some

on the road lending out from Skagway.

itilod uml rendered practically impas*
Ruble by B.000 or 4,000 people and their
outfits. Of course, us long its the snow
lasts in the spring the trnil will be i)
better one than when tbu traveler has
encounter mud und boulders, which
wore suoh an obstacle n yenr ago.
As for tbe trail from Dyott, whioh is
thu ouu experience has proved to ho
the beat, two tramways nre are under
construction for the transportation of
goods, line of these bus tt tram railroad from Dyea to the base of ihe summit ridge, and au oleclrlo bucket system ucross the summit to Lake Linile-
inttiin. The other has two tramway
cables loading from the ilrst aud second divides und ending nt Lake Llndu-
in.uiii. Connection between tho Inst of
these mnl Dyea will hu mado with
wagons ami puck animals. Neither
of these enterprise is ready for operation, nnd tlie possibilities are thai they
will not he before tbu iiist of April.
When incomplete operation, their combined capnoity will not exceed 400 tons
per day. Assuming that hy tho use
of puck animate 10i> ions per dny eould
be taken over the White pasa from
Skagway, this leaves the total capacity
of all faoilitles provided for both passes
nt 800 tons per dny. This menus 1 OU
dnys fur transporting 50,000 tons thut
will l»u accumulated there by the Ilrst
of April. In other words, accumulations could not lie cleared uwuy before
tbo middle of Juno. The probabilities
are, however, thnt during the months
of April nml Mny uu equal quantity of
new freight would durannd tittention.
In this calculation no allowance is
mude for the freight which could be
taken on sleds bv imlividiiulfl uml by
tbe aid of dogs.' This would be inconsiderable, in fact, with such it
mass of Immunity uud of goods, it
would bo almost Impossible for freight
to bo moved ut nil on those narrow
portions of Ibe trail where Iho right of
wny would bu (be Subject of dispute
nud contention. If pooplo interfered
wilb each other lust full so us to ciente
n blockade on both trails with loss thon
8,000 people attempting logo over, It
.lues not require n gront [light of imagination lo see Ibe utter blocklldo that
would be created by 60,000 people.
One who intends to go to Alaska tuny
woll stop uud consider whnt Ids chances
uie likely lo he iu such a mob, und
whether bo would not do better lo seek
Bcnno othei route or some other objective point titan tlm Klondike teg ion.
Of course, transportation tacilltlos from
the coast   ports   lo  Alusku   huve   been
provide.! for Dyea und Skagway, but
doubtless as soon us this blockade so
develops tlntt intending gold hunters
demand to be taken somewhere else,
steainerfl will leave the Dyea and Skag*
wny routes nud seek   other  ports, such
ns Copper rivor and Cook's Inlet. Al
tin so places there is room for ull. No
nariow canyon trail confines tbe gold
hunter to a particular route, but thero
is opportunity to spread out over a
wide expanse of country, now practically unknown, hut reported to he rich
iu gold, Theie nre suid to be low
pusses through the mountains front
bntb Copper river nml Cook's inlet,
loading over to tlio Tnnntm uml to the
head waters of Birch creek, by which
tbu now promising gold fields on the
American side of the line mny be more
easily reached than by thu route across
tho Ohilkool pass iiml down the lakes
and rivers. The government is now
lilting out mi expedition for Copper
liveri    Undoubtedly these routes will
ho opened up Ihe present season by
I prospectors even should  not the grent
. stream of travel be turned in that direction.
i    There are already  Indications of n
; desire on u.e part of gold  hunters to
abandon their men of going to Dyea
und Skagway, uml to Btike out for the
Copper   river   und   Cook's inlet,    lie-
jyund doubt this tendency will rapidly
I increase aa the crowded condition nl
the pusses becomes better known.   At
present the only facilities for reaching
.Copper   rivor and   Cook's   Inlet   is the
, United States mad  bout operated by
tho Paolfio Const Steam Whaling Company  from   Sun   Francisco,  lhe   two
stiinll stoumeis   nojv on the route from
Portland to Copper river, and the a mill I
Bteamer running from Port TowtiBend
to Copper river.    These  steuiuers  nre
already inadequate to meet the demnnd
uml doubtless more will soon be put
OII the route.
I     Attention hnsitlmli turned in the

Ind miles to Lake  Teslln.   On this
Btrotoh ol 1B0 miles it is proposed by u
Canadian company to conatruct a railroad the present yenr under a Bpeclal
grant from the Dominion purl lament of
-,'0,110(1 hcioh of  hind   per mile,   and
the time  set for its   complutlon is   the
, first of September,    It  is   thus seen
thut, for this season nt louBt, only such
, travel can go over the Stickeen route
us cun he handled  by  pack animals,
und this, of course, cannot ho very extensive.     Possibly   several    thousand
peoplo will attempt this route, with
the probability that a huge portion of
them   will   mnke  a   failure   of   thoir
effort.   Should  this railroad bu built
and a sufficient light draught steamer
bo placed ou Luke Teslln and Iloota-
linqua river, iu another year the Stick-
i ecu route would he lhe favorite one.
Undoubtedly a great many who intend to go lo Alusku ure waiting to take
Iho  ocean uud   liver mute   during tho
summer  mouths.     lleio   there   is  as
much   uncertainty as   oil   the  pusses.
The facilities have yet to ho provided.
Possibly us tunny us 60 small  Bteainers
nro  undor construction  or huve  been
purchased   for use on   the Yukon iho
1 coming siimmor; but navigation of thut
' rivor    is   expensive   nud   dangerous.
! Channels aro narrow and  tortuous nnd
known  only to a  few people,    Fuel is
very difficult to procure, nnd  it is understood Unit  the  companies already
operating on tlie river have secured all
that can he hud for several hundred
miles from   the mouth of this stream.
Those companies will not take miners'
outfits, preferring to tnko in goods foi
' thoir  own   stores  uud   sell them   tu
miners after they get three.     Conso-
! quently miners wishing to tako outfits
i will have to depend on independent
i boats which promises tn be a very nn-
! certain reliance.    Certainly,, one going
1 hy th it route should  not undertake it
; unless ihe transportation company con-
I tracts with him  to carry  him   clear

lever,  is a matter about whioh more
will he known n few months later.   Ah
stated above, the natural outcome of
the presont condition of affairs would
ho the opening  up of new routes and

Horace wus noi actually in love with
nny one, but thoro were three girls he
rather admired, so he tried nu expert*
ment. He aiinouuced his Intention of
taking n holiday, or, at till events, of
going ovor to the city for a trip, saying
he wns not quite sure when lie would
be able to return, About 11 o'clock one

girl he liked best, and when the iloor
WtlS opened nsked for Miss Kllen, and
told the tun Id to sny that lie had culled
at that unusual hour to say good-by,
us ho was leaving suddenly, und had
very little lime ul his disposal, lie
was shown Into a slttlug-room, sopar-
tiled from another by folding doors,
und distinctly heard the voice of his
charmer saying to bet' mothor:
"No, mniuuin. l certainly will not be
Seen ut this hour In ihls dirty old dress,

In two or three minutes the mnlil returned to Ihe walling Horace uud suld

headache.
"A girl who puts on a dirty dross In

wife for ino," thought the young man
ns lie went away, and, turning Into the
nest row of villas, he rung (he bell of
a door which wus on the chain and
Blood a little wny open, giving him a
view uf the staircase. On the hnlf-
i landing Btood the girl ho bad culled to

vigorously that she evidently did not
notice the ring nl the hell. Iler voice
wus so shrill nud Her Ill-temper so evident Hint Horace instantly took a card

j "Ask Mr. Tremlow to come lu," and
he wns shown straight Iuto the sunny
i back parlor, where Miss Mury Jones

up to the French window of the modest

Those esthetic people of (he Northwest coast of America, who palnl and

bodies, were wearing bracelets uf
twisted cellar bark, bracelets of wood,
bone, horn, hears' claws, birds' beaks
seals' teeth, shells uml copper when
the whlto mail found them, Tbey had
p-onderous wristlets hammered from
nuggets of pure copper and Inlaid with
nbaloue shell, uml others of twlfiied
copper wires. They made Iron bracelets as soon us ihe traders brought thom
thut uiH.il. uud tbey learned to oxidize
copper hy Ileal until Ii resembled lion.
When the miner Invaded the fur
traders' realm the Indians began to
receive llClunl iltoiiey. to soil Instead of

seemed to vuluo or covet gold In lis

RANBROOK HERALD.
TUESDAY, MAY   31,
British Colombia stands today nt the
head ol the list ua one of Canada's most
prosperous provinces. Wii.il it would be
with tin- Opposition in control one can
easily imagine by following the course
of thnt party during the recent seBslon
of the legislature.
The fight this year in British Columbia
hus been denominated by some as a contest between the Ins und Outs, with no
issue til stake. In a measure this Is true,
except Unit the Ins are backed by a record satislactory to the people, while the
Outs have nothing to offer except complaints nud 1 a desire for office.
A few of the people of Port Steele are
Committing a grave political error when
they insist op n candidate for the lej
lalure to promote the interests of Fori
Steele. The position is an unfortunate
one. The people of this district want a
representative who will be impartial in
his worki and not one who is nominated
with the idea that, if elected, he will
represent one community,
I position at work until the latter acknowledged their defeat—not in the manly
manner in which manly men would have
admitted tbe fact, but In a way characteristic of ihem and their tactics. When
utterly worn out with a 25 hour Billing
they disputed a ruling of Dr, Wolkem,
who was in the chair at the lime, and
litis made au excellent excuse for them
to put ou an air of offended dignity and
outraged justice, and walk out of the
House iu it body. After a sleep of 24
hours or thereabouts, and the consequent
room for reflection ou Iheir bud conduct,
the Opposition, unrepentant, returned to
their old tricks, and ns ft consequence
the session i-lill dragged along.
itics nre very rotten, but this matter of
debarring a growing town fr< m having a
posloffice, on political grounds, out-rots
the Yankees.
Col, Biker stands today as he has always Btood—not for Cranbrook, Wardner, Port Steele, or any oilier town or
community, but for the district as a
whole. His record bears cut this statement to lhe fullest extent, lu fact there
has been less money expended about
Cranbrook'or in the immediate section
which directly affects the Inleresls of
Cranbrook, than in any otlter one point
pf the district,
When Uie Redistribution bill was handed down lhe Opposition were loud iu
their acclaims of outrage, nnd the representatives of the party in Wept Koo*
leuay cited this acl as an Illustration of
lhe unfairness of the Government to that
part of the district. When u change
was made, and West Kootenay was given
another member, Ui * Opposition, un*
daunted, and truo lo 'heir policy ofi
gtumbitug, said mch a move would not
help tha Government, It is ibis sense-
less policy of objecting 1 anything pro
posed by llie Government that baa weak
Liicd lhe Opposition.
Vancouver World! Notwithstanding
the efforts made by his detractors, we
learn that Col, Hiker is stronger and
mote popular at the present lime in East
Kootenay than he has ever been before.
Tbe vlllifieallon which lias beeu heaped
upon the Provincial Secretary has proved
a boomerang, and has resulted in alienating from the Opposition ranks n gteat
many who were disposed to be hostile to
the ga lit tit colonel. The in inner iu
which lie has discharged the duties devolving upon him as Provincial Secretary, Minister of Education, Minister of
Mines and Minister of Immigration lias
tended to popularize hini in the estimation of all with whom be came in contact in the past. Hitting his Incumbency

Tbe ladies of obstruction so well understood and persistently 1 dopled by the
local ' ppositioti hoyecettaluly been wjiu
threadbare dining the session of ihe legislature just closed, and whatever excuse
might be found foi Isolated illustrations
of this  policy, the i.*;/* record of Mr.
Semlin and liis followers Mtnply shows
tbeir paucity of legitimate  resources.
First it was lhe presentation of the est!
mates th 1 induced the proclamation of
n  campaign of obstruction and delay,
expensive to the country w hi'e merely
vexatious In its effects,   Then it was the
redistribution bill—the same lime wasting tactics being adopted, only to culminate in a disgraceful  backdown ami
acknowledgment  of defeat.   Then the
Yukon   railway bill— the  methods audi
results (confusion to the Opposition and
annoyance and cost to the country) have i
been ibe same all through lhe session. I
The fight over iho redistribution bi 1 was:
the most characteristic  feature of ibe!
session, perhaps, nnd a wo d as to it il-1
lust rates effectively Uie whole scope of,t'1
the plan.    Mr. Semlin and his followers
issued lhe throat tlm ihey would keef
the Government at. work till their own
ends were secured! lhe Govt rumen I qui-
I Uy turned the tables, nnd kept the Op

was started, of the ftet, copies forward'
ed, ami ibe laws complied wiih in every
particular, so us to secure io Thb Her-
ai,1) the ligiits of mail service t.) which
every newspuper In the Dominion Isalike
entitled. An answer wis iccetved acknowledging lhe receipt of letters and
papers, saying tbe matter would receive
I prompt attention, About ■ ix weeks later a piper was started in a neighboring
town, and it has had almost from tiie
first, advantages of tbe mail service not
accorded this paper, and every ItitRAi,D
sent  "Ut  by llle publishers  has   to   be
stamped. Jt looks very much as though
the lion Mr. Bostock is using his "pull"
with the Canodiangovertiiuentto punish
thoe not of liis wa* of thinking.
And more than ibis; what amounts to
au outrage on an enterprising, thrifty,
giowing community, Is tbe fact lhat although a petition for a postoffice at
Cranbrook was forwatded to the authorities and by them received last October,
no action has been taken except it be lo
keep Craubrook from its just due.-*.
