And It Behooves Cranbrook to Advance

A Bridge Needed Across the St.
Mary's to Bring: Business
to Cranbrook.
Tht following account of the bonding
ofthe Harris Group on Whitefish creek
is taken from the Nelson Tribune.
Whitefish creek empties into the St.
Mary's river just above the lake, and at
the present time the group referred to is
reached from the Kootenay .lake side,
necessitating the crossing of n range of
mountains by a pack trail, which is on
each side ofthe divide a steep, precipitous route. Heretofore this has been the
best route in, but now, with the completion of the wagon road building
from Matthew creek to St. Mary's lake,
the route via Cranbrook and Marysville,
thence by tbe wagon road, is the only
one that is capable of permitting the
transmission of supplies nnd machinery,
or tbe shipping of ore from the Harris
group otherwise than by pack-horses,
barring one exception—the crossing of
the St. Mary's. There must be a bridge
across the St. Mary's at tbe lake to
permit access lo this rich district from
this way; to haul the ore from the Harris
group,out over the route by which access
is now obtained, is very much of an uphill proposition, necessitating the building of a wagon road over a precipitous
route. A bridge across the St. Mary's
at the point named, would find a downhill pull for everything coming out and
a comparatively short up hill pull for
everything going in, in addition to
bringing to this point an extensive and
increasing business now going the other
Here is real, legitimate work for the
Board of Trade.
The Tribune correspondent says:
Kuskonook, Sept. 31.—An important
deal has been closed by Philip Corcoran
representing Senator lttirns of San Francisco and other capitalists of San Francisco and New York, fot the purchase of
tbe Harris group of mines, situate on
Whitefish creek in the St. Mary's
country.   The consideration is (125,000.
This group consists of i_ claims and
the showing of high grade copper and
gold ore le unsurpassed in tbe province.
Mr. Corcoran spent nearly the whole of
the pnst season looking over the principal camps in both Hast and West Kootenay, and after a thorough inspection
decided the Harris group to Iw
tbe banner group of any in tbe country.
He thereupon opened negotiations with
the owner, Mrs. Jennie H. Harris of
Kaslo, with the result that tbe deal was
closed here yesterday, and the papers
relating to the same deposited in the
Merchant* Hunk of Halifax, Nelson.
There are nine claims on lhe one
vein, which averages about forty feet in
width, their values running as high as
$400 to the ton in copper, gold and
silver. A considerable amount of work
has been done ou the property by the
original owner*. A tunnel TOO feet long
has been run in, following the vein, from
which a winze has been sunk some 60
feel. The lead bus also been uncovered

Some Indians Find GlgnntJc Cave on   Van.
cou ver Inland.
Nanaimo, B. C, Sept. 24,—Tuesday a
party of Indian fishermeu going up a
creek near Nanaimo saw an aperture in
tbe bank, which the lownesa of the tide
had exposed. Tbey rowed in and one
of tbem, bolder than the others, said he
would explore the depths and see what
there was in them. Procuring a torch
he crawled into the hole and disappeared. Shortly afterwarks be came out
ind excitedly beckoned to hie mates to
come in. They all entered tbe hole and
to the astonishment of tbe pioneer's
comrades tbey found themselves in a
spacious cavern which extended nearly
four hundred feet into the hillside. A
Httle rivulet ran through tbe center and
from tbe vaulted roof dripped moisture
in large drops almost like a steady
shower of raiu. About a hundred feet
from the entrance they fouud evidence
of previous human occupancy. These
consisted of charred embers and some
broken implements and utensils.
Searching further tbey found fragments
of bones and lhe remains of what had
evidently been a gun; near it lay some
bones, but whether man or animal they
could not tell. At the end of the cave
fart hers t Irom the entrance the cavern
broadened out into a splendid chamber
about eighteen or twenty feet in height,
and with perfectly smooth floor. As the
Indians were poceeding with their examination they beard a strange gurgling
roar behind them, and thoroughly
ftightened they immediately darted
toward tbe exit. Thev were just in time
to get out. The tide had risen just
across the entiance, and it waa a wave
that had caused the roar, the echos of
the place magnifying the auuud h thousand times. Tbis statement was made
to the writer, who is one of the very few
here who kuow anything about this remarkable cove. A party of white men
will inspect tbe place minutely in a few
days. It is believed lhat the mystery
surrounding the operations of some extremely hard cases who used to "operate" around here may be cleared up by
nu examination of this unsuspected
Se Fir » Heard ol tbe Spokine Exposition
His Nose Prom Here.
The virions camps of West Kootenay
will be largely represented in tbe mining
exhibit of the Spokine exposition, but
so far as heard of tbere will be little, if
any, from this district. The Nelsou
representative at the fair is quoted as
"After the exposition," Mr. Dowsing
sat i, "I shall find suitable quarters iu
Spokane and open a bureau of general
information on the mines and mining
resources of British Columbia, where I
will keep on file all papers and periodicals, as well as maps of tbe province.
This ii demanded because of tbe intimate relation between this city with the
Kootenays and other British Columbia
divisions, and while I will not close my

"When we hive a good property

looked upon as the best friend and

Columbia and the intercourse bis always

steadily growing demand for good property, both from tbis country and

The biggest slide that has ever occurred on the Crow's Nest brancb came
down al the Loop on Thursday night
after the east-bound express had passed
that point. Full particulars are not yet
to hand, but it is known that the slide is
about 700 feet long and over 20 feet deep.
The steam shovel commenced work on it
today, but it is doubtful if trains get
through for two days.
There were many sore hearts in Fernie
on Monday wheu it became knowu that
Mr. Robert Fisher had been killed in a
railway wreck ou the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo railway on Vancouver Island
Saturday morning. It is but a short
time since the employes of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company tendered Mr.
Fisher. a complimentary banquet and
presented him with a handsome gold
watch, and it seemed incredible that he
should now be lying torn aud mangled
and dead to all earthly ties. Mr. Fisher
was superintendent of the Fernie mines
less than a year, but during that time be
endeared himself to nearly everyone wilh
whom he came iu contact. This seems
to have also beeu the case at bis new
home, as evidenced by press notices.
Mrs. W. W. Tuttle was ■ few days ago
the recipient of a beautiful present from

consisted of a belt buckle, blouse set,
brooch and hat pin, all bearing a maple
leaf in beautiful enamel. It was a complete surprise to Mrs. Tuttle, who is
kindness personified, and always ready
and willing to help along any worthy
object. She values the gilt from the
baseball boys very much, and will always
prize it as one of her mosl valued treasures.

A Washington, U.S., Paper Makes Remarks
Applicable Elsewhere.
The citizens of Waterville hsve
through thoughtlessness fallen into tbe
habit of imposing upon, requiring and
eipecting loo much ofthe business men
ofthe town. The little row of business
houses around the square are expected
hi many respects to support the city.
Our business men are liberal to a fault,
but loo many arc inclined to impose upon good nature and the matter has gone
from bad to worse until we believe it
proper to again call public attention to
a few facts. Tor instance, we decide to
hnve a Fourth of July ceiebration. A
few business men are expected to meet
the entire expense, even though many
of tbem lock up iheir places of business
and ore nol benefited one cent by tbe
celebration. We have a county fair and
a few business men are expected to take
enough advertising in the premium lists
to meet all the priming expenses of tbe
fair. The busiuess men are expected to
contribute liberally to the support of the
various pastors of tbe town and then
take enre of their families, and attend
fifteen church dinners during the year-
These are only a few of a long list that
might be mentioned wherein the business
men ol Waterville are almost daily tried.
When looked at ib a proper light it is
only a legal and artistic way of robbing
a man. Thc business man who refuses
to contribute liberally lo these demand
thnt are daily mnde upon bim is at once
giveu to undeistaiid that he will be boycotted,
If tbe citizens wbo receive all these
benefits from our little circle of busiuess
men would appreciate their generosity
and reciprocate by giving them their exclusive trade, the evil would be of less
magnitude, but if the average citizen can
save a nickle by sending an order to
some city depnrlmentstorehe forgets all
these favors and the order goes. If our
business men were not required to contribute a third of their income for tbe
benefit of our town, no department store
could furnish you goods as cheap as
lhey. You rob them at every jump in
the road and then compel them to coin-
pete with firms that never pay a penny
for the benefit of our town.
These are cold facts that cannot be denied. If it were possible to show in dollars and cents lhc amount paid out by
business men of Waterville for charity
and for which lhey receive no reward,
our readers would be surprised at Ihe
magnitude ofthe amount. Just cut this
out and paste it in your scrap-book and
before starting out to solicit funds read
it over twice and before sending your orders to metropolitan deportment stores
read il over four limes nnd we believe il
will acl ns a wholesome tonic upon yonr
system.—Big Heud Empire.

known astronomers ol this coun try,
who nre i-onm-i-ii'il with the Verkcs ob-
pervatory, ut u time wben by n peculiar
roi acid ence the scientists of Purls were
grently ugilitted oA*or tbo discovery of
what wen* believed to bo Indications of
rivers and plants upon the moon.
It was the good fortune of ti- h. 0,
Wadswortb, onu of ilu* observatory
stnlT, to get the lirst glimpse of tho
union through tbe V-arkes telescope, ti.
i;. Hnrnard was the next member of ibo
BlalT to gaze nt the far-away planet, und
the conclusions of these two learned
gentlemen nro Identical iu that tbey
agree that neither discovered anything
oi Importance to the scientific world.
The peculiar lines nud spots noticed by
tin* Parisian astronomers on the map
of the lunar planisphere thnt te boing
photographed In thc Mendon observatory wen* not to bo seen through the
Yerkes telescope. Thoro was nothing
additional to be noticed but an unusual
amount of detail on the surface of the
moon never seen before.
"Thc moon ten magnificent sight seen
through the Verkea Instrument," snid
Mr. Barnard recently. "One enn see nu
enormous number of small details never
seen before, such as small craters and
min ute crevasses, but there nro no
traces of nir nor vegetable life to in* detected, li is possible that the lines
found on tbo photographs taken nt tlie
Mendon observatory might be crevasse a.
1 don't pretend to say what lhey represent. I only know that the observations
taken horo fnll to givo any confirmation
of tbo theories of the Parisian astronomers."'
Tho reported discoveries at tho
French observatory aroused thc Interest of a number of astronomers who
gathered at the Yerkes observatory for
the purpose of attending its dedication. None of the number was
rendy to give any Indorsement of tho
theory tbnt life prevailed In any form
on the moon, however, and all agreed
with the opinion expressed in these columns tbe other day by S. W, Hurnbam.
If the ntmosphcrlc conditions bad been
favorable it Is likely that every one of
the distinguished scientists would have
availed bimself of the chance tu poop
ul tbe moon, but this pleasure bad to
be foregone, because of the clouds,
"There are just as good photographs
Inketi through small instrument.*-! as
with large ones," said Clcorge 15. Hale,
director of tho Vorkes observatory.
"Prof. I.ocwy, director of the Paris observatory, bus undoubtedly made thc
best photographs of the moon, but thc
best photographs ever made will uot
.show ns much us can bo seen through a
18-Inch telescope. The lines noticed in
the photographs of the Mendon observatory have always been nol iced, and
no astronomer bus yel ventured to assert that thoy represent active rivers.
I entirely agree with the views of Mr.
Uurnham on the subject."
Carl Ttunge, director of spectroscopy
at the observatory in Hanover, (Ier*
iiiiiny, is another one of the distinguished visitors at the Vorkes observatory who holds contrary views to those
reported as coming from Paris, lie considered it very improbable tlmt a photograph of the moon would be made that
would show objects 1,000 feet long or
high. With Prof. Hale, he believed it
possible thai tin* spois ou the Mention
photographs, which were nol considered Bhadows, were to bo accounted for

Tbe    Bure    Wbo    Talk.   About   Ills
Health or AlltuenU.
A group of men were talking in u hotel corridor uptown recently when a
man with a dark beard and rather long
hair entered, The members of the
group began to scamper away instant-
Iv, and it was u curious fact that not
one   remained  to exchange greetings
with the oeiv arrival- although they all
knew him intimately.
loi. David f. Uurhuugli, who came
from Ohio aud knows President McKinley and nil the big orators and
statesmen, explained why it wns that
they ull nvoided the man.
'Thai man is o gentleman nud a
scholar, but he is the most unmitigated
bore that ever woro out the patience
of Ills friends, lie should rend 'Don't,'
which .snvs: 'Don't afflict others with
your troubles.'   Hut lioenn he cured."
"What is the remedy?"
"Ii is drastic and may result in un-
pleasantness at Ilrst, but some close
friend should do it. 1 had u friend
whose mania was talking about his
health, lie looked strong, ate three or
four meals a day. smoked big, black
cigars, and yet his hypochondriacal
monologue*; were unendurable. Every
morning he eame to my ollice and for
nu hour would tell mc how muny times
he sneezed before breakfast, what he
took to prevent a repetition of the
sneezing, bow be imagined thnt some
dny indigestion might overtake hlin,
nnd a lot of other things not at nil en-
tet-iiiiuiug. I bore this for six months,
until I lost my appetite and almost got
sick. Uul one day I ran away and left
"Had a row, of course?"
"No; I advised him to stop talking
about his alleged illness. 1 told him,
which wns true, that he was talented
nnd entertaining on any other subject,
and us a friend 1 begged him to cease
being* u bore. At lirst he was indignant,
but he thanked mc for my frankness
finally and snid he would reform. He
belonged to a class of men who have
conversational paresis and who will
talk for hours without encouragement."

huve reached the conclusion that the
production of silk from the spider is
worthy to become nn important Industry.

"Tiu- modern hotel." said the manager

change within the past 16 years, uud
buildiugs and methods then in vogue have
been greatly enlarged uud modified. Wuh

that the limit in hotel construction aud

ure now few hotel men who will venture
11 prophecy that this immense structure
will ever be relegated to second pluee. 1
hnvo no douhi, however, that within 50
years the metropolis will have a hotel as

years ihe older hotels of Washington,
which Is one of the best 'hotel cities' in
the United States, will nil be rebuilt.

Tho iIoimhI Juror.
A mnn wus eu trial recently in a court
of this city for grand larceny nml conspiracy. One day of lhc trial was rainy.
A reporter assigned to the trial luid his
umbrella against the jury box, but It
was in tbe wny there und a court oiliccr
picked it up.
"I'll put it in the jury box, It ought to
be Fiife there, if anywhere," he said.
When the court adjourned for the day,
the reporter looked in the jury box for
his umbrella, but it was not there. lie
sought out the court olllccr, who nlso
mnde n careful hut unsuccessful search.
"One of them jurymen's took it; no one
else," remarked the otllcer. "An they're
iryin that man for birceiiy!"
The reporter's umbrella wns never re-
turned, but the defendant was found guilty nnd sentenced to seven years' Imprisonment. Evidently the juryman who hud
the umbrella took the proverbial view of
it and did not think thc Illegal possession
of another's properly disqualified him

UeiHnff Up IIIn Critic,
Some curious relics of former superstitions nre [ireserved under the courthouse
in Edinburgh. The little was figures,

which were so frequent in the sixteenth
and seventeenth centuries. It was supposed thut if n wax image of an enemy
were made, prodded with pins, and then
m-dited in tho lire, the original would suffer similar tortures nnd dissolution. The
belief is at least ns old ns the dnys of
Ho nice.
Indeed, the superstition has survived

One Woman Regained Health and
Almosi. every woman at the head of
n home meets daily with Innumerable little worries in her household
affairs, They may be too small to
notice an hour afterwards, but tt Is
nevertheless these constant little
worries that make so many women
look prematurely old. Their effect
may be noticed in sick or nervous
headaches, fickle appetite, n feeling of
constant weariness, pains in the back

nnd the coming of wrinkles, whleh
n\-ry woman who desires comeliness
dreads. To those thus afflicted Dr.

did can understand tlm misery I endured for years.     As time   went   on

despaired   of   ever   regaining   health.
Then*  were  very  few  days  that  I  did
not suffer from violent headaches, and
Un* least exertion would make mj
heart palpitate violently. My stomach seemed disordered, nnd 1 almost
loathed the food f forced myself tn
eat, I wus very pale, and frequently
my limbs would swell sn mueh thai
1 feared thut my trouble was developing Into dropsy. I had elmoi
constant pains In the back and loins.
It was while I was in this sad condition that I read in l--n Presso of
the cure of a woman whoso symptoms wrre. much like mine through
tho use of Dr.  Williams'  I'ink  Pills.
I told my husband and he urged me

There is no doubt In our mind thnt If
the north hud uot Interfered, if Virginia
had been left free to settle tills question
for herself, by degrees nil the slaves
would lm tc- been emancipated under wise
und conservative provisions, the tie of
affection that hound muster and -d-ive together would have been abiding, and thc
evils of reconstruction hnd never been.
Slavery was imposed upon Virginia by
England, kept upon her by thc nllinnee
of New England slave traders with southern planters. Virginia mude repented attempts to stop the slave trade uud even
to abolish slavery ns nn institution, nnd
we give it na our deliberate opinion thnt
even if there had been no wnr there
would have been no slaves today In the
stale of Virginia.—Richmond Times.

Although Prof. Knnekfuss Is usually
credited with assisting the kaiser in
the production of bis surprising pictures, the (ierinuii monarch owes his
earliest Introduction 10 the mysteries
of art to an English painter, says the
London Chronicle. Thp Hrst time the
kaiser handled a brush was ut Windsor, when Mr. Frith was painting the
picture of the prince of Wales' mar-
ringe for the qucep. All the royal personages gave sittings to tbe artist uml
the kaiser, then 11 little four-yeiir-old
prince, spent several mornings in the
room where the picture waa being
pointed. To keep tho child quiet Mr.
Frith gave hlm some paints and brushes
aiui allowed bim to dabble on one of the
Unfinished corners of tbe cimvns.
As a natural result of this very injudicious proceeding the prince's faco
was In a very fow minutes covered with
streukn of green, blue und vermilion.
The sight of bis smeared face terrified
his governess, who bogged the artist
to remove the colors; and Mr. Frith,
armed with rags nnd turpentine, bud
nearly completed his task when the
pungent spirit found its wny into h
scratch upon the child's cheek. The
future kaiser screamed with pain, ns
sanlted the eminent painter with his
fists and hid himself under a* large
table, where he wiled until he was
tired. Mr. Frith declares In his "item
iniseenees" that tlie little prince
allowed it most unforgiving spirit nnd
revenged himself afterward by silting
so badly that the painter failed altogether to produce u satisfactory likeness.
