The following letter hat been received
from Lake Liuderunn at Portland, Me.
It is pormarked Dyea, Feb. 1, and is
from Mrs. Martha A. Kertley, of Dorchester, Mass.:
Lake Llndenitn, Jan. 31.
My Dear KH/.a,���Hurtj I am on tha
borders of the land of hope. But, oh!
what an experience I have passed
through in coming over Chilkoot pass.
I was wrung in midair from point to
point over rocky chasms and almost
toEsed from peak to peak.
For you ��ee 1 was the first woman to
be carried over the new aerial tramway
that was completed only two dayB ago.
At first I thought it would be to nice
when tbe kind-hearted managers of the
line proposed to carry me over tho pass
instead of having to walk over it with
my husband and tha other men of the
party. It would only take an hour ar
two lu this way instead of one or two
dayt ot the hardest kind of climbing.
So they tucked me into a little box, only
two feet wide and three feet long and
about two feet deep. It was only made
for carrying freight, they said, so they
tied and strapped and bound me in as
they would a load of groceries, and I
wondered why they were bo careful
about it. for I told them 1 wouldn't
jump out.
But they just laughed, and told ma to
gaud on and not be afraid. Then they
hoisted me up on to something like an
overhead trolley wire. The cables
attached to the box 1 was in started with
a creaking, grinding sound. Straight up
tbe mountain-side and into tha dark
canyon I went as if I were a bird.
Higher and higher up from the grsuud
the cables carried aae, and I was afraid
to look down, so kept ray eyes fixed on
tht height* above and beyond,
All at once, directly in front ot ra*,
loomed a great black cliff, and 1 was
[ .Imbed straight at It. I closed my eyes
and shrieked as I never did In my life
before, when lo 1 the cliff wat gone���1
had be-sn whirled jttt around its ��dge,
and then I felt the awfulcst sensation;
for I was tusp*uded over a great chasm,
hundredt of feet above a glacial torrent,
and it appeared to be a mile from one
side of tlat canyon to uuolher, where the
tpider-like cable line* were suspended
from towers. It seemed to me I hung
for hours over the yawning chasm, but
they told me afterward 1 could not have
been more than a minute and a half, for
the span as they call it, at that point is
only 1,600 feet. But mathematics don't
count in such a situation���you ju6t have
a horrible, sickening fear of tuch terrible
hoights and distances in midair.
The rest of tlie way was straight over
never-melting glacial ice. The air up the
rocky pass covered with snow wan
bitterly cold as it cane in a perfect gale
down between the mountain walls, and
it seemed as if the North Pol* mutt be
right ahead of m*.
Then came the intense relief as the
summit of the pass was reached, the
threatening walls of rock flattened out
into a hilly plain, and the car slowed up.
It was th* end of the line, and a group
of rough but kind-hearted men cheered
mo a* the car waa lowered to the ground
and I was unstrapped and taken out.
They told me how brave I was to take
the first trip of any woman. In fact,
they said that no man before this hud
btcn over the whole line at one time. 1
had crossed the dreadful Chilkoot pass
in an hour and a half, whilo the poor
miners struggle for days ami weeks
along its awful course. I tremble to
think of Frank, my dear husband, and
hie companions, who are at this moment
iiimcwher* in that mane of frowning
rock walls and mow gorge*, But I pray
Heaven they may arrive Per* at the
summit safely to-morrow. The miners
here are making me at comfortable as
possible in a log hcuse near the saw mill
on Lak* Lindcman till my husband and
his party arrive.
All our snpplies will be brought over
on the tramway. When everything has
been brought to this point wo shall toke
dog sleds and go down over the frozen
lakes and rivers to Dawson City.
I am sanding thit letter back in the
way I came, ia a package over the tramway, and thoy say it will bo one of the
quickest letters ever sent out of this
far-off, lonesome country. Give my lov*
to all tho friends at home, and believe
mt, ns ever, your affectionate
Martha.
Mrs. Martha .V. KerBloy, of Dorchester,
a suburb ot Boston, tho "frtter ot the
above letter, is a member of a party of
seven which left Boston on Jan. 2nd for
Alaska. Mrs. KerBloy was th* only
woman in the party. She insisted upon
accompanying her husband, Mr. Frank
Kersley, a mining man ef much experience in many parts of the wubI. The
two member, of the party were young
men from Boston and vicinity, who put
themselves under Mr. Kersley't guidance. Mrs. Kersley Is a vivacious,
intelligent woman of 30.

A Comparlaon.
The following statement thows bow
the Teslin Lake railway tenders received
by the government compare:
The P.othschild's tender was: (0,000 a
mile cash and various lots of land of
1,500aerct each: refused to tender for
for land grant only.
Th* Allison tender for Dye* route
railway was: 30,764 acr*s p*r raile in
solid block* of 576 square miles; no cash.
The Mackenzie contract: 25,000 acres
per mile of railway to be chosen under
certain restrictions and in blocks of a
minimum size of 144 square miles,
divided into blocks, of whioh the government retains alternate section*; no cash.
All other promoters itopped when it
was announced that there would be no
cash subsidy.���Free Press.
British America Corporation.
We look forward with a considerable
amount of interest to the circular to th*
shareholders promised by the Marquess
of Duffcrin at tlie statutory meeting of
th* British American corporation, sayt
th* Financial Bulletin.  It is a matter
of public interest to know  what thit
corporation, witli a capital of ��1,000,000,
is or it not to acquire.   W* w*re led by
th*   prospectus  to   suppose   that   th*
Alaska Commercial company was to be
one of iti chief asaett, in exchange tor
tho cash subscribed by the shareholders,
and that next iu value came tbe Le Roi
mine. The chairman has told th* shareholders (hat the Alaska venture hat been
abandoned; but what about the Lc Roi ?
Has this also lieen put on one side?   If
so, it seems to ue that the subscribers to
the issue  have  been  deceived by Mr.
Whitaker Wright ami the Globe Finance
corporation.      Th*  pro.pi.etus  of  th*
British American corporation doult principally with the larg* profit! that would
accru* from th*ae  two  concerns,  and
many  of  the  subscribers to the Issue
were influenced accordingly,   It seem*
entirely wrong that option   properties
should figure on propectuses, and then,
after allotment, be quietly abandoned.
Th* British American corporation ie not
the only company  to blame  in this
respect.   We remember  another company promoted by Mr. Catton,  who is
now on hi* way t* British Columbia,
which made  a  great point in its prospectus ol Wabigoon townsites in Wabi-
goon, a station on th* Canadian Pacific
railway.   We would ask Mr. Catton or
the directors of the Rainy Riv*r and
Ontario Exploration company whether
this option has not been abandoned. We
have reason to believe it ha*; and this
being so, we unhesitatingly assert that
what capital was tubscribod���small as it
was���was mainly on the option referred
to.   Having as we have the interests ot
Canndaat heart, we feel bound to protest
against stylo of promotion.   When an
option on a property is inado a leading
feature on a prospectus, in tlio event of
the  necessary funds being subscribed,
that option ought to become aa out-and-
out purchase, otherwise an oppoitunity
ia given for a system of fraud which will
stem  the  flow  of  Britisli   capital  to
essential to developing tho vast wealth
of the mining district* of th* Dominion
of Canada, now being brought to the
notice of investors in this tountry.   As
regards th* British American corporation, there can be no doubt but what thiB
company,   with   proper   management,
under the chairmanship of Lord Duffcrin
and the financial support of the Whitaker
Wright group, ought to achieve great
things in Canada.     We lielicve we are
correct in stating that there ar* 3,000
shareholders, and that the  capital  of
��1,000,01X1 was over-tubicribcd  to the
extent of 25 per cent.
The Upper Columbia Navigation k
Tramway Co.'s com petition wad finished
this week, II. G. Parson's rink being
victoriouB. Tlio following Hlinws ihe
standing of the rinks in the competition.

Parson  4 1 0
Kae .3 2 0

Henderson  3 2 0
McNeish  0 4 1
Houston  1 3 1
Tlie final for the Columbia liiver Lumber Co.'b trophy was played on Tuesday
night between Houston's Buckshots and
Brock't Orphans. It was a hard fight
from start to linish, the score being a tie
at the conclusion of the last end, necessitating the playing of another end,
when Houston won with the last shot.
The Calgary Consolation was fought
out thiB week also. On Wednesday
night McNeish met and defeated Parson
to the tune of 18 to 8, and on Thursday
night ho met Neilson's Colts, who, even
with the able assistance of Capt. Bacon,
proved about as easy a mark as Parson,
the acor* being 19 to 4 in McNelah's
favor. The first prize in the competition
is a banquet lamp and four boxes of
cigars. McNeish's rink think so much
of their skip, lie's such a jolly good
fellow, and recognizing that hiB able i
generalship guided them to victory,
have presented him with the lamp. It
is needless to say that " Wullie " waa
tickled over the presentation.
Kennedy k Douglas, merchant tailors,
Toronto, have presented the club with a
curler's v��st, for competition. The following draw has been made*.

The first gamo in this competition was
played on Friday night when Kae defeated Henderson 11 to 9.
The competition f'ir the Bostock
trophy will tuko . place at Sandon on
Friday and Saturday ol nest week. The
Golden club havo received an invitation
to attend. It Is unlikely however that
Golden will be able to send a rink.
The Colts scored twic* in tlieir Consolation game and they evidently think
that that entitla* them to second place.
Perhaps it is because they can take more
"consolation" ott of the Bocond prizo.
Tho Pacific Cable*.
Tho Vancouver board ol trade recently passed the following risolution:
" Whereas the hiyiligof a Pacific cable
from Bri'.ie'.i Columbia lo Australia to
complete the circle of Imperial telegraphic communication and afford an
alternate direct service between tlio
mother country and her greatest dependencies of Canada, India and Australia,
tho highest strategical and commercial importance i and whereas, in this
connection the home government would
appear to be now awaiting more deflnita
action ou the part ol the colonies, and
whereas, further, all measures tending
to facilitate more ready intercourse with
Australia are of the lirst importance to
Canada;
" Be it renolved that, in the opinion of
the Vancouver board of trade, the question of the earlieBt pos&lble completion
ol a Pacific cable from British Columbia
to Australia iB one which demands ihe
careful and urgent attention ul tlie
Dominion government;
"Be it also resolved that as a further
incentive to prompt action, tlie board
would suggest that the consummation
of an all-British clruuinterrane&n telegraphic service might be a tilting event
with which to inaugurate the first year
of the twentieth century."

A hi*_h raft wind caused the fire to
spread to Mrs. Burncy's hoarding house,
Irom thence to Alexander's jewellery

A Letter from Her Cousin.

the following affectionate letter from her

The Rotslander:    Though it may be
true that the centres of population are j
apt to vary in British Columbia there is
DO reason   tor  making   tlio   proposed,
redistribution   of   seats   a   temporary
measure a* it Baid to be all that thu
government   will   do at   this   teaton.
Kootenay is now bo well established that
the   shipping   mines  alone will retain
until th* n*xt Dominion census is taken
a larger population than it bus   now.
Th* output of  its mines is likely to
increase rathor than diminish and its
relative importance ni a   part  of   the
province will be greater rath*r than lets.
It ia now paying upwards ol on*-tliird ol
the taxen ot the province, yet is represented by but two members in a house
���f  33.   It   it  time that  som*  ef   the
district*   whos*  glory   is  departed  or
whose  advance has  not  come  up   to
expectation b* consolidated for election
purposes or else the number of members
increased to correspond with population
and wculth more closely than now ender
tb* present division of constituencies, A
radical redistribution of electoral ridingi*
will have to be uitnlu some time, and tlie
government should have the courage to
tak* that step now.
Yankeo* aro Mad.
A Washington despatch to tho New
York Sun says:   The Btatc department
upon the recoinmuudation of the secretary  of  the   treasury, Mr.   Gage,   has
decided   to employ strong measures of
retaliation   against  Canada unless the
Ottawa  government  shall   consent  lo
modify   its   regulations    affecting  tlie
issue of miners'licenses in Yukon.     It
Is expected that a communication on tho
subject  will ho sent to th* Canadian
i cabinet by the department.   Many complaints have been made to the treasury
.department   hy   United   States ottlsons
! going to the Klondike region becauso
! th* Canadian  government   refuses  to
| issue miners'  licenses  at    convenient
! points, such as Chilcoot, above Dyer,
but requires applicants to go either P*
Victoria or Vancouver in the south, or
lo  Dawson,   to  the   north.   Secretary
Gage  says   that   the   new   sub-ports of
Dyou and Skuguay were established last
year lor the purpose of extending better
accommodation  to   foreign    shipping,
especially British.     United States whip
owners did not need these sub-ports,
since United States vessels engaged in
in the coasting trade do not need to use
a  particular   port  at   which   to enter
tlieir cargoes.    In view ol ibis courtesy,
extended mainly Ior the benefit ol Can -
dians,   Secretary Gage regards Canada's
regulations affecting inlntrB1 licenses as
ungenerous   mid    unreasonable.     Tho
state  department, it is expscted, will
represent to the Canadian governmeul
that  Unless  the   negotiations   shall he
ratified the sub-ports of Dyea and Ska
guay will be abolished by tiie treasury
department.
The latest Klondike reports are die* |
couraging to newcomers. It is said that'
all the available claimB of any value
have already been taken up, It must be
added that tho motive for these hltott (
pessimistic advice* is open to suspicion.'
One effect of the largo amount of
interest taken in the Klondike goldtiehla
will be to anticipate and considerably
hasten the c.umuenccmcnt of spring
business in Canada. A very large number of people are expected to urrivo in
ths Dominion durln'g the early months
ol the year, and although many ot theui
��� perhaps the majority,���wjll only be
birds of passage en routo for the Yukon
fields, their arrival and the supply ui
their many necessities must almost of
necessity expodite the commencement
oi the Canadian spring trade and give it
a general stimulus. It is a sign of tho
times that some Canadian houses will
now make contracts only al prices sub*
ject to an advance which may o.-cu,,

Speaking of Canntlu and the prospects

been of inestimable advantage in attracting capital tiiero and in developing tho
resources of thu country Manitoba and

MINING INDUSTRY OF  AMERICA.
The mining Industry is the backbone
of the nation's wealth-producing power,
hiivr tbe Mining und Metallurgical Journal, as all other industries ure dependent
uu it for the means by which each sepur-
ute branch of trade and commerce is
carried on. Without the largo and
diversified mineral resources of tlie United States our agricultural land and products would not have hali.the value ihey
pussi'BS under present conditions, us tlie
home market would b* small and the
mineral and manufactured imports
would ifreatly exceed tlio imports of
cereals and farm products. It is not
only in tho base metals, as iron, copper,
lead, line, etc., and the hydro-carbons,
solid and fluid, ot the enstern nnd middle atates, to which we owe our national
pre-eminence us & milling country, hut
also to the largo part of the world's
annual yield of gold, amounting to
(61,347,232, and silver of (80,245,901 per
annum, produced in our western states,
which ha*, never been equaled in amount
by any country. As a field lor the
remunerative investment Of capital, our
mining enterprises command tlie capital
of Europe. As a political factor capital
is loyal to itself in the interests of its
own increase. There are several causes
for thie preforencs to American mining
investments, among which may be mentioned : A home market for the mineral* produced. Our* mining laws are
liberal and in the interests of mining
development. The social and political
conditions of our country are safe and
ktiible. The investment of foreign capital in our mines is not such a blessing ns
as it would seem, us tho profits are a
drain on our gold production to pay
dividends and interest on capital which
has to bo exported to Europe. I
which cas* our country only receives
half the benefit, of tho minerals produced
Under our liberal mining laws and the
conditions in some branches of mining,
which encourage monopoly by controlling a district, a great incentive ifl given
to the investment of large amounts of
capital. In England us well as in the
United States the Anglo-Saxon race has
made mining the chief source of national
wealth. Enterprise and the intelligent
us* of capital have achieved this end in
both countries. Tlie recent silver tidal
wave which nwept over tlie troubled
surface of the uncertain and ever changing ocean of American politics, and
came so nearly wrecking tlie monopoly
of cheap silver of the bunking Interests
of Europe, and shows thu Influence
. American silver can have us u factor iu
the trad* between Europe uud Asia, if
the United States controlled its own
silver market witli the cast und Orient.
At present our political neglect of silver
causes a loss to tho United Status of
about (83,000,030 a year, which profit
goes to the Bunk of England in its trade
with tlio east and Asia. So essential is
the industry of mining to nil the slates
of the union, both as economic, minerals used in the arts und manufactures,
as well as our production of gold and
silver us mediums of money and es*
change, that its national wealth-producing power warrants that a reconstruction
of tho federal cabinet ollices he undertaken,with a view of giving this Import
ant branch uf trade the place in our
government cabinet representation
which its Importance demands.
A Klondike Dirt Thawor.
Mr. .1. W. St, John, who, in connection
with Mr. Ormlstoii,ls thoitiventorofthe|
Klondike earth thtiwer, will loave ur,
Friday noxt tor Dawson City, tolling
with him tt number of the miichllica,
The thawor is said by all who huvc had
any experience in lhe north and have
seen the machines to he a splendid contrivance. An American which passed
through the city a few days ngo purchased one und took it with them. The
inventors sold a fraction of their interests r-oiiie lime ago fur (3,000. It is
expected tout the machine will revolutionize mining in frozen soil. It passed
a very successful test on frozen earth
here, a substance practically unaffected
by a fire built upon it bring thawed only
an inch at most. The tluiwer, while
concentrating lhe heat, very greatly
reduces the amount of fuul used. It can
be used for drifting or sinking with equal
effect. Mr. St. John will be accompanied
by Hurry Robinson, of this city, and 11.

Largest Mlno in ths World.
It is not generally known in Canada
that th* largest gold mine iu tlio world
i* in Australia. It is called the Meriub-
Morgan mine. At lirst Uu. ground on
which it is situated was a dairyman's
cattle-run and when lhe gold excitement
was at fever bent in Australia, a geologist informed the owner that there wus
a gold bearing vein of quartz running
through his property, lie did not put
much faith in tlie assertion and sold the
mineral rights of the land for (05. Three
brother* of the name of Morgan were the
purchasers and they each invested (2,600
in developing the property. To-day
thoso brothers aro living in England and
are deriving a revenue of $115,000 per
year apieco from their original investment of (2,500. The mine lias an linn mil
output ol nearly (4,000,000 and pays a
dividend of nearly 38 per cent on tho
stock of the company which now operates it. The ore is reduced ut a cost of
about (3 per ton, and the directors of
the company have just decided to put in
a new plant, at a cost, of $150,OOt), by
which the cost of reduction will be
reduced to five shillings per ton. ln
addition to paying large dividends, largo
sum* are laid by annually lor the acq lieing of new mining properties. The
main shaft is sunk to a distance of 1,300
leet, and the ore does not, on the aver ige
yield more than (26 por ton, oi which
about 0*1 per cent is recovered.
Dean Stanloy'o Handwriting!.
Edward Everett Hale showed us, tho
other day, a letter that ho once received
from Dean Stanley, uud that had never
been able to rend. The illegihlo penmanship of this great man is touched
upon by Dean Farrar in a recent publication.
In Dean Stanley's "Sinai and Palestine," the first proofs informed the
render that from the Monastery oi Sinai
wus visible " the horn of the burning
beast" 1���a fearfully apocalyptic night-
marc of tho printer's devil, for the
horizon of tlie burning bush "; and thut
on turning the shoulder of Mount Olivet
iu the walk from Bethany, " there suddenly burst upon the spectator a magnificent view of���Jones! " the dean having
written his abbreviation of " Jerus." for
"Jerusalem." When he answered an
invitation to dinner, his hostess has been
known to write back and inquire
whether his note was an acceptance or u
refusal; and when ho most kindly replied
to the question of some workingman, the
recipient of his letter thanked him, but
ventured to request that the tenor of the
answer might be written by someone
else, "us ho was not familiar with the
handwriting of tlie aristocracy."���Ex.
A Modern Joseph.
A Scotch paper tells of a dream and its
interpretation whicli in truthfulness will
rank with Joseph's famous explanations:
A laborer of the Dundee harbor lately
told his wife, on awakening, a curious
dream whicli he had during tho night.
Me dreamed that he saw coming toward
him, in order, four ruts. The lirst one
was vary f-.it, and was followed hy two
lean rals, the rear tat being blind, The
dreamer wus greatly perplexed us to
what might follow, in it ind been understood to dream of rats denotes coming
calamity. He appealed to his wife
concerning tliis, but sho, poor woman,
could not help him. His son, a sharp
lad, who heard his father tell the story,
volunteered to be the Interpreter, "The
fat rat," he said, " ie tlie man wha keeps
the public hooje that ye gang till sao
often, and the twit lean anes are me and
my mither, and the Win'ano is yersel',
faither."
Who could give a better answer?
Story of a Wedding Cake.
It is told thut a Rossland young lady
not long ago received a rich and beautifully ornamented cake from eastern
frieiids who had heard that she wus
about to be married. However, the
wedding did not take place, and, as the
story goes, the cake wus sent down town
in a tin iiox box to be hermetically sealed
up, so that it might be preserved nntil
such time as the happy event would
become a reality. Hut there will probably he some consternation when the
box la opened, as it iu said that some
practical jokers among the young lady's
friends thought it wus too had that such
n toothsome delicacy as a wedding cake
should be consigned lo tlio obscurity ol
a soalcd tin box, even if only for a few
mouth , uud to save it from such a fate
thuy decided to dedicate it to the purpose for which it was intended. In other
words, they lite it, und substituted n
common loaf bread as the inmate of tho
box,���Rossland Times.
He opened the door cautiously, and
poking his head iu, in it suggestive Bort
of way, us if there were more to follow.
Inquired, " Is this tlio editorial rink-
turn?"
"The what, my friend?"
"Is this the rlnkttim,Binktuni, sanctum, or some such place, where the
editors live?''
"This is the editorial room, yes, sir.
Come in."
"Xo; 1 guess I won't come in. I
Wo li tod to see what a rinktum wus like,
that's all, Looks like our garret, only
wtiss.  Good-day."

Wm. Fernie, of tho Crow'* Nest Pass
Coal Co., euid the other day: We have
un inexhaustible supply ol eoal, and iv is
of the very best quality. As tbere Is no
Unfit to the supply we are desirous of
creating as great a market as possible
for our product. We will be able to sell
coal so that it will not be practicable te
nse wood for fuel, even if tbe wood can
lie secured for nothing. And what is
more, tlie second year we will be able to
reduce the price, as our facilities for
getting out tho coal will be greatly
increased. We have a hard coal that is
the best quality of gas coal, and we
expect to find a market for it as far
south as San Francisco, while we will be
able to put a superior quality of coke
into Montana for a lest price than they
are paying now for a quality far inferior
to that which we will be able to produce.

News has been received from the Hud-

rich find of placer gold on the Liard
r ,*er, near its junction with Mackenzie.
This shows that placer deposits exist on
the eastern aa well as well as western
���lopes of the Kocky Mountains.
Tho r.cvelsteke Herald say*: The
gold commissioner lias received word
from the Minister ef Mines that claims
cinnot be lumped together in advertising notices of application for certificate
ol improvement, but each claim must be
advertised separately both in the Gazette
nnd one local paper. The ruling sheds
quite a little gleam of sunlight on the
rocky path of tho poor printer.

projected, bids fail- in a short time to

of shortening the journey, offering at
