Never in Goldeu's history was inch an
enjoyable evening spent as at the ball
given last night * by tho members of
Rocky Mountain Lodge No. 31,1.O.O.F.,
when all the youth and beauty of the
town and vicinity .(of which Golden
possesses a large share) turned out at
the request of the local branch of this
grand old organization, which iB known
the world over as ono of the best fraternal societies ia existence. Everybody
came knowing well that a good Ijimu was
iu store, and disappointment was out of
the question, for the committee, as well
as the members individually, spared
neither pains nor expense to make this,
tha first ball given by the lodge, a
success. They worked hard, one and
all, and earned for themselves the credit
and gratitude due them from an appreciative public. They each performed
their duty to the point, watching faithfully and truly for any incident that
might tend to mar the proceeding of tlio
evening upon thia occasion. It is to th*
members of the local branch of this
order thut wc owe so much for the
success of every public amusement that
takes place, and on that account we
should not bo eparing in our efforts to
applaud the ambitions of a body which
has done so much for the advancement
of brotherhood and civilization.
On cntcrini
a troll-deserved applause from everyone
in the hall. There were several others
who took the lloor, but tho two young
ladies named had to take the lead and
they did it admirably.
It was well on into the morning before
the last number was reached and all
woro satified with both themselves and
the hop, whicli wound up eventually
with the gathering forming a circle and
singing " Auld Lang Sync " and " God
Save tlio Queen," after which everyone
wended their weary way home.
Messrs. McPherson and Woodhouse,
of Donald, supplied the music in a very
ablo manner, which, coupled with the
condition of thc floor, made it an easy
matter for tl'.edanccrs to accomplish each
engagement with ease and comfort.
There were not so many visitors as
were expected, but that can be easily
accounted for since it is ��o l��,to in the
season and everybody has employment
only awaiting the advent of spring. But
under the management of Mr. Charles
A. Warren, the floor manager, who
looked after everybody's comfort, the
whole affair was undoubtedly a pronounced success in every respect. We
are inclined to feel sorry such gatherings
as this one do not occur more frequently
during the winter months, and bespeak
the best wishes of a thankful public to
Rocky Mountain Lodge No. 34.
A snowslide occurred in the Chilkoot
Pass curly on Sunday, April 3, whereby
a number of Klondikers lost there lives.
The slide descended at tho " cut of," a

tho ball-room one was whicli close to the side of a steep glacier
struck with tho decorations. At ono end hundreds of people wero camped.
British Columbia In England.
Revclstoke Herald: Mr. ,T. J. Young
ol tho Calgary Herald, who was III town
yesterday, said that during his recent
visit to England In. found a very ssiis-
fact'iry and favorable feeling towards
British Columbia existing. The Klondike excitement has proved a most
potent advertisement for thia part of the
world and the opinion in broking and
promoting circles Is that British Columbia is destined to l*>.:coine I lie next
fashionable craze among speculators. A
number* of syndicates have already been
formed to send experts out to this country to report on its mineral resources,
'and others are being formed. Developed
and proved properties will prove the
chief, and indued tbe only attraction
worth mentioning, to tlioso people.
There i* an Immense amount of capital
in the old country earning at present
only one and a half per cent., for which
more lucrative openings are continually
being sought, and some of which will no
doubt be diverted in the nonr future to
British Columbian channels.

of the room the eye fell upon the emblem
of thc ordor, while the name of the lodge
formed a semi-circle beneath it, and on the
sides bunting and dra|>cry,which extended clean around the walls to the opposite
end, mingled with tho Union Jack and
British Ensign, and also a couple of goat
and deer heads standing out iu bold
relief over the other decorations. And
last, but not least, was a large portrait
of our well-beloved aud aged sovereign
lady, Queen Victoria, admirably framed
and decorated, and lent a beautiful hoad-
pieco to the bunting.
In due time the programme w��s pro*
ceeded with and at the call of first dance
on the programme about eight sets were
formed up and the dance was started in
earnest and each number was carried
through in a manner agreeablo to every
one, not a hitch taking place at any tim*
during the evening to spoil tho event.
The following is the programme:

Half-time was called at 12 o'clock and.
everyone sat down to n sumptuous
spread, including several varieties of
frosh fruit, all of which was attended to
by Mr. H. J. Starfortb, and, needless to
sny, everything was all that could be
desired. The tea, coffee, cakes, etc.,
were refreshing, and livened everyone
for tho remainder of tho programme,
which was promptly proceeded with
after tho guests had done justice to the
numerous good things strewn around thc
tables. During Ibis part of the programme a request was made to the
musicians to render a Highland schot-
tieche, when Miss Gladys'llouslon and
Miss Gertie Fields promptly took the
floor and gave a splendid exhibition of
this popular dance, which brought forth
A heavy suow storm had been raging
all Saturdoy night and the huge weight
of snow towards morning caused the
first little slide*,. It was not until 10
o'clock on Sunday morning that anything serious happened. The mild
weather had honey-combed the snow
that was lying on the mountain sides
before the Saturday night storm, and
the fresh snow falling on top had proved
too great a weight, consequently the big
blankets oi snow slid off the steep mountain sides.
Suddenly with a roar a great macs ol
snow fell from the mountain and buried
three men. Hundreds of people were
passing up tho main pass and many were
also travelling downwards through the
cut off, for it is estimated that at least
4,000 people went over the pass daily.
There were many willing hands ready
to give assistance, and soon a score of
men were digging away to rescuo the
unfortunates. Not long afterwards a
hug.! body of snow extending along the
side of the mountain gave way and came
thundering down into the puss, burying men and tents and oxen and horses
and dogs. Where a few moments before
had stood a little camp with more than
a hundred tnoii was now a broken mass
of snow and ice. When tho people who
saw this recovered from tho momentary
panic they caught up shovols, picks and
even pails nnd pans with which to try
and dig out tho victims who were burled
under the mountain of snow und ice.
The work was rendered far more difficult
by tho fact that there was so much ico
mixed with tho suow that it was difficult
to handle. AVord was sent to Sheep
Camp two miles down the.trail, and in
a short time hundreds of men were
working for life and death to save the
victims of tho suow. Fifey-sevun people
were taken out alive, many of them
badly hurt, others benumbed with cold
and somo few quite uninjured. So loud
was the noise of tho great avalanche
that it was heard several miles away.
As fast as tho dead were takon out they
were carried to Sheep Camp, where the
living were cared for in the tents of the
campers on the main trail.

The Methodist Social.
On Thursday evoning last a very
successful entertainment and social was
held in the Methodist church. At 8
o'clock Mr. .1. A. Dittos took Iho chair
which ho lillt'd in a very efficient manner, and mude th* cnlcrtaiumeut pleasant by bis terse and graphic remarks.
The programme consisted of selections
from the quartette composed of Mrs.
Tom. MissB. Woodley, Mr. Mitchell and
Smith. A couple of duets were sung by
Misses Lottie Woodley and Ida Book-
bout, which wero well received. The
Bookbout brothers gave some good selections on tho harmonica, which were j
heartily encored. A dialogue given by
Bert and Allan Hanna was rendered in
good style. A recitation by Mr. J.
Collins was very interesting, giving the
young mon an idea or two on the art of
courting, which, wo think, was highly
appreciated. A duet by Mrs. Tom and
Miss B. Woodley brought forth a round
of applause. A reading from Mr. Smith
wound up Ibis part of the programme
Then cume the most desirable portion
of the programme���the coffee and cake,
which was partaken nt' by everyone
present, and the ladies deserve credit
for the excellent manner in which they
provided for their guests. Tho church
was filled to its utmost capacity and the
proceeds amounted to $40.

An Amusing exhibition of tho tenderfoot going to Klondike was seen the
other titty at Ashcroft. A party of sis
young Englishmen; going by the overland route, bud bought shoir enytiscs
and were preparing to mount and start.
One ol' them, dressed iu a buckskin coat,
clutparcjoi, and wearing a pair of spurs
as big as a saucer, attempted to get into
the saddle from the wrong side of the
horso. I'laciiig I.is left foot in tho stirrup
be tried to climb over tho horso's bead
into the saddle, eventually getting there
face towards the tail. Tbe big spurs got
entangled in the animal's hide, and
naturally, objecting, ho quickly shot his
hold rider lo tlie ground. Some of the
bystanders, taking compassion on his
misfortune, picked him up and
helped him into the saddle in the right
position and he soon rejoined Ids com

many tribulations in store for that poor
tenderfoot beforo his jouruoy is over.

Wonro indebted to Mr. T. ii. Sbatigli-
nessy, Vice-president of the Canadian
1'aciiic Hallway Company, fur a copy of
a report from the engineer of lhe. line,
from which we tako Iho following description:
Tlio line is now located from the cast-
cm terminus at Lethbridge lo tho crossing of the Kootenay river, at the upper
end of Kootenny lake, a distance of, Bay,
���1287 miles, and preliminary surveys have
beon mude, at Nelson.
For the first t'O miles the line passes
'over what is called a prairie country,
but very heavy grading is encountered,
as well as the heaviest bridge work on
the lino. This is owing to the. necessity
of crossing St. .Mary's river, ilt-lly river,
Pinehor creok and the south fork of tho
Old Man river, as well us the many
coulees met with, in order lo reach these
crossings. Soiiie 21 bridges will be
erected, ranging in length from ll'O to
2,750 feet, and from 20 to ISO feet high.
From mile 80 to 10-3.7 miles, whore the
line readies the summit of the llocky
Mountains, lhe work is heavy with a
���considerable amount of rock excavation.
From the summit westward for 111 miles
the work is heavy and involves the uso
'of two tunnels and sonic six bridges from
60 to 200 feet in length each.
The next 117 miles, following down (he
Valley of the fill: river to the crossing of
���that  stream, consist of  t'.trth aid rock
In order to reduce this noise nnd to
make lhe received message entirely
secret, a special sounder bus been
invented. The sounder, which ifl inclosed in a hard rubber case, is very
light���the whole thing, with conducting
cord complete, weighing but four ounces.
It can be used not only without the
slightest Inconvenience to the operator,
but much to his comfort and advantage,
relieving him of all necessary nerve aud
physical strain. It ciin be attached
directly to the main lino, whore it acts
as n combined relay and sounder, giving
all the servico of both, without uny of
the disadvantage* and annoyances of a
main line sounder.
The mechanism of this little instrument is vory simple, consisting of a set
of electro-magnets of from 2 to 150 ohms
resistance (according to requirements).
An ingenious arrangement of tho armature and lever brings the former in
actual contact with the poles of tbe magnets in sucli n manner as to double tho
working force of tlio armature. The
armature lever is provided with hammers, which, in action, strike upou n
resonating plate; a shifter or switch nt
the side of tho case draws tho hammers
from the plate aud reduces the sound to
a minimum.
Owing to the loudness of the sound
when the hammer strikes .upon the
resonating plate messages may ,bc received with the sounder placed on lhe
table or desk, nnd in this way it may
also bo r.sc.l tor a call, thus .combining

It is said that the Provincial Government will undertake to assay gold dust
at Victoria. Tho dust will be moulded
into bars and a certigcato of its value
given. It is also stated that tho various
banks in the province have agreed to
advance money on these gold bars, provided they are accompanied by the eerti-
cute and bear the government stamp.
This will be of great convenience to
Canadian prospectors and miningcom<
panics in the Klondike, as it will obviate
lhe necessity of Rending their gold dust
to San Francisco.
All persons indebted to me are requested to settle same with Mr, C. II,
Parson, who has authority to give
receipts for the same.
