knowledge that they would have less
than that number of days in whioh to
perform tho work, and  put  up  a  big
guaranU'O that it would bo done, waa a
venture that eclipsed everything in railroading  history  on this or any other
continent,  and  Mr.  iUcKcnaio stands
lief ore the eyes of the world to-day as a
man possessed of unsurpassed nerro and
unparalleled  business enterprise.   lie
litis deposited With tho government the
tn of ��250,000 aa a guarantee that he
wilt fulfill his contract.   Should he fall
his quarter of u million goes into tho
public treasury.    Those who re mom bo r
thu tremendous Bums it cost to build the
(!. P. II. through the rocky district eastward to Port Arthur and on tho north
shore of Eoko Huporlor  can   readily
reali/.c what this daring Canadian haa to
mfront to carry to a successful issue
his great venture.  But it is a fact worth
iiolii!;;   in   this   connection  that  Mr.
McKonrfe has never yet failed in any of
liiti numerous projects,   Doubtless he
will  add  another  to  lii.'i  loug list of
business achievements In buittUtu  Ins
link which is to give continuous and
easy transport  facilities   through  tho
heart of tho northern gold fiolds.   Tiie
road will be financed on the land grant
given by tiie government.   Beforo this
land grant can be located the contractors
will have to expend fully one million
dollars iii fulfillment of Iho conditions
imposed by tho government.    This was
of the tonus that Mr. McKcni.lt.1
fought hard to have relaxed, but ihe
ministers  wero immovable.   Whatever
ij-omo people may believe Mr. McKctnde
cortalnly does not think that ho has
made more than a reiiBonahlo bargain ;
in fact, he rcnlisca that he will have to
exerclso his business ingenuity to its
fullest extent in order to como out with
n reasonable profit,   " ! havo vmI in
the papors that somo opposition lo the
arrangement has developed in the west,''
said  Mr.  Mackenaie;   "but can you
mention nny other man, or any other
linn or corporation in Canada that would
take hold of this work on our taring?    I
ftsel certain that you cannot;  and you
may have observed that none  of  the

and if it had been more favorable than
ours tho government would certainly
havo accepted it. Home people complain
of the suddenness with whloh tho
arrangement-wits sprung on the public,
hut. it is scarcely rational to suppose that
business men should expose to tho world
their plans and projects before tlieir
negotiations have been coiisttrnmated.
We spent a great deal of money before
wc took up the i-i'honie, and every fair-
Indod man will support me when Istiy.
that it would have been folly to let every j
person know what we were doing
are railroad builders, nnd we took tliis
work on a business proposition, the only
difference between this and the ordinary
railway contract being that we are taking exceptional chances. The government i�� not involved to the extent of one
cent; they will profit to the amount of
>|260,000 if we fail. In other words,'the
government aro securing without tin-
outlay of one dollar what will be a moat
important factor in securing to Canadians the great trade which mining in
Yukon will develop.''
" Whore   will  your  land   grant   be
located?" Mr. McKenxie was asked.
"All Of it will bo north of the 60th
parallel, in tlio territory of tho Yukon.
Tho ftutokonzio river Es tho oastorn
boundary."
" HOw will your grant be located."
" Wo have the privilege of running a
base line aud on either side uf this select
Olir blocks of land, every alternate block
being reserved for the government. Our
line cannot iollow the sinuosities uf a
stream, but if there should be pro
nounced change in the course of tlu
stream wo can divert our base line,
always keeping it straight. You will see
by tliis that all round and betwbn om
reservations there will bo an immense
amount of territory for the operations of
miners or for companies. < Iur concession
is but a small fraction of the mineral
area of that expansive territory. Tlie
government have safeguarded the inter-
of the public In every possible way,
I am assured that tho people who go
into thai region to look for gold will
never haw eai.M- for complaint. If a
prospputur should And gold on uur hind

interested in curling wero present, and
a most enjoyable time was spent.
The (Joldcn bonspiel took placo'this

but owing to tho soft weather it was
impossible to curl until Wednesday
morning. Two rinks nf < Iolden curlers

Thejyand ball given on Tuesday hist
by the Golcn Curling club'in Alexander
hall op the Occasion of the visit of outside curlers to the bonspiel was a. rousing
success in every respect, notwithstanding ihe fact that the only music available was the piano, owing to the
irregularity of the trains, which caused
the musician;, from Donald to cancel
their engagement, However, with Mme.
Mercier at the piano no lime was lost,
while her playing WftS far above the
average. Mrs. Erickson, of Field, also
played several eeleotiona which were
highly appreciated both by the dancers
and Slino. Mercier.
It was well on to half-past nine befoi
tho first dance on tho programme was
'���ailed, ut which time ihe hall  was well
filled with tho lovers of tho "light fantastic."   Xo time was lost between the
opening dance and the one proceeding
refreshments.     Kvery body  seemed   to
enjoy themselves and no one appeared
v tired of the manner In whicli
jramrno was carried out, which
great credit on the committee
that prepared the preliminary arruuge-
it;! as well its the  reception  committee.    Praise is also due  Mr.  ti.   II.
llroek, who acted as  master  of core-
monies in a very efficient manner, ably
assisted by Mr. 0. A. Warron.
Shortly after midnight refreshments
were handed  round to all ill bounteou*<
tyle, tho cakes and ;: 1 stuffs having
been provided by tho ladies of Goldon to
the hall committee for  this  occasion.
After   jtlStlce    had    been    dOIIO    tO    tllO
many .:uM things dancing was 1'esumed
and kept going until <^ a.m. on Wednesday morning, when everyone dispersed
feeling satisfied with themselves and the
pleasing manner in which everything
was brought to a close.
The hall was beautifully decorated
with bunting, brooms and curling stones
by several membors of the club, who!
gavo their services and worked hard to
bring about the success of the whole
affair and show to the public that the
jrund alild game still leads in tho arena i

The monthly meeting of tho North
Fad Kootenay Miners' Association was
held at tho Columbia House on Tuesday
evening, Feb. 1st., the president, Hon.
I'. VY. Aylmer, in the chair.
Tie; first matter brought beforo tho
meeting w;<h the renting ot suitable
qUnrlerfl for a reading ami dub room for
tho Association, it was decided to accept
the offer of Mr. McNeish of a room for
������Ilia month.
The president read a paper in favor of
iho abolition of assessment work on
mineral claims, and that the work
should be made optional with the claim
holder. Instead of this yearly assesH-
inent work, which in nine cases out of
ten was done in a very carelesss manner
ami of no account, it was suggested that
nn annual tax of say $10 be paid, to bo
used in the building and repairing of
trails in the district, It was thought
the prospector was rather Imposed upon
under the present system and that the
$100 paid now was too much considering
ihe means at the disposal of the prospector.
Alter considerable discussion it was
decided to bring the matter before tho
next  meeting, afler iho members had
considered the pros, and cons.
The meeting then adjourned.

urB j allowed to evade our censure, should the

shall not fail to speak well of those
opportunities of which wo consider the
investor would do well to take advantage . in tho meanwhile a paper read
ou .Monday evening at the Royal Colonial institute by Mr. Kdgar P. Ruth bone,
on the] gold-fields of Ontario and British
j Columbia, is worthy of attention.   At
iscovery of gold haa | thfl outBet kt ug Bay that Mr< Rathbone,
as a mining expert, does not believe in
Iho many fairy tales told of the almost
fabulous Woalth of the Klondike field.
All the same, he is'a firm believer iu the
wealth q( the Dominion, and is llrmly
convinced of the fact that, under proper
conditions, gold mining in Canada will
bocomo of enormons^importance. Gold
mining, that Is, the*arduous recovery of
tho precious metai fromjthe quartz, is a
comparatively new [industry in^Cunada,
dating from 1893 only. L'p to that date
the treasnre-huntors hod^jsearohed only
;or alluvial gold, a proees$*whicll can be
carried ou for a considerable timo without leaving auy trace on the,surface of
the country. It is a different affair when
men settle down upon a well-chosen reef
lo extract gold from the solid rock. It
means estons.vo^plunt, large capital,
and pormunent effort. So carried on,
gold mining is a pioneer industry which
opens up new provinces and may even
call into being new states. Pioneer work
is always arduous and difficult, and
certainly not least so in these far-off
regions of the northwest. For Jive
months of the year theVountry ifl covered
wi;h snow, water-power is cut off, and
mining operations are at * stand. To
have tho working year reduced by one-
half Is a serious drawback, for which,
however, compensation will be sought in
redoubled activity during the summer
months, At the present StOge even ihcy
a-j not altogether favorable since in
many districts, though not in all, the
such prices in some instances were paid; summer vegetation is so luxuriant us to

While the re
attracted the attention of the world to
Klondike, the great interest already
amused in iho mines of East Kootenay
has not abated, and mining men and
capitalists are now RBBiduously examining many of Uie mining properties of the
district. More thorough dovolopment
work is in progress, and the prospects
for this now' but growing ^industry aro
most promising. This year will not witness the continuance of that insane rush
seen in former years to^'lloat mining
companies; nor will there he the
tame influx of iuexperlonced^buyers,
keen to secure property to dispose of
elsewhere by "the aid ofJCstarfling and

eager public, imbued with the true

THE   RAILWAY   DEAL.
Tho Globe's Ottawa correspondent
devotes a\x columns ui matter tu the un-
'liouncoment of the Government policy
oi the construction of a railway from
Stickeen rivor to Teslin Lako, and to tlie
effect that tliiw will havo on Mecnring the
Klondike trade for Canada. Tlio coitcs-
I-ontient lirst dwells" on the Btruggle
for the trade in that region between the
United Suites and Canadian cities, refers
to tlie customs blockage caused by the
arbitrary action of the United States in
regard to the passage across the United
States strip of territory from Skaguay to
White Pass. A special reference in made
to the fact that the Washington authorities are not apparently inclined to keep
the agreement made with Mr, Sifton the
other day, whereby these difficulties
could he pbviated and tbe Government
consequently is hcimj inundated with
telegrams from wostern Canadian points
' asking to close tho passes, Undov existing conditions ull tho trade will bo lost
to Canada and under the new conditions
says tin* correspondent, all, or practically all, will he reserved for Canada.
Concerning the award of the contract,
the correspondent says it in understood
that there have been many seekers after
these franchises for the construction of
this railway. Tiiere was more than one
proposition to build the highway to the
Yukon. One proposal came from the
Canadian Pacific railway for the construction of the work. Hut most of
these propositions had no substantial
backing, aud on* offer from an English
syndicate was withdrawn as soon aa the
real magnitude of thu undertaking became manifest. Tho only men who
seemed to have adequate financial
strength for the work, tho necessaty
experience and the courage and ability
to give the necessary guarantees of good
faith and financial capital wero William
Mackenzie, of Toronto, and Donald D.
Mann, of Montreal. After explaining
that there wan no cash subsidy to be
granted, but that a grant of*25,000 acres
por mile of tho mineral lands would he
given instead with a strict reservation of
all arable land, while tho company is to
put up $25,000 guarantee, tbe correspondent mentions the following important
conditions: It is also provided, and
this feature is of first rate importance,
that in determining the selection of
lands for the contractors, each alternate
block shall bo reserved for the Government. If, therefore, the contractors ure
permitted to secure rich gold-bearing
territory, the Government must share
in their good fortune- and it will not he
possible for them to monopolize great
stretches of the choicest portions of tho
gold belt. In addition, a royalty of one
per cent will be laid upon all tho
precious metals produced from the lands
alienated to the company, as compared
with ten per cent imposed upon the
ordinary placer mining, but the greater
certainty of collection in the case of tlie
company gives some additional value to
this regulation. The lands are to be
seloctcd frc:u that part of the Northwest
Territory ly :ig west of the Mackenzie
river, nnd the Laird river, and north of
tho (.0th parallel of .latitude. There are
various provisions looking to tho control of tbe railway in the matter of
rates and an equal protection in tliis
clause on behalf of the railway. For
five years from the hist of September,
1S93, no line of railway shall bu authorised by Parliament to be constructed
from nny point near tue international
boundary line, between Canada and
Alaska, into the Yukon, nor shall any
aid in money or land bu granted to tiny
other contractors, for that purpose,
Moreover, during ten years, from the
first of September, 1898, tl,ie contractors
ahull be given (bo preference iu auy aid
tlto Government may gee lit to grant
towards the building of a line of railway
from Stickfno river to an ocean port in
British Columbia, providing they are
willing to undertake its construction
within a reasonable time.
In addition to the land grant from the
Dominion Government for the Yukon
railway, Mackenzie and Mann wiil receive a cash subsidy from the llritisli
Columbia Government of $2,500 per
mile.
Klondike Golds Fields.
We commented some time ago upon a
movement among the American outfitters for the Yukon in the direction of
practically nhutting out Canadian goods
from the strip of Alaskan territory which
it is necessary to cross to reach Teslin
lake or the headwaters of the Lewes
river. This would have been a severe
blow to Canadian traders, but we ventured the opinion that the Tutted Slates
government would not he a party to such
an unjustifiable scheme, Tliis tins proved
to be the case, as a cable despatch
informs us that Mr. Sifton, the Canadian
minister of the interior, has made satisfactory arrangements at Washington for
the free passage oi Canadian goods
through Alaskan territory. " It is quite
evident that the Klondike boom has
collapsed." That is tlie opinion of the
New York Engineering nnd Mining
Journal, which ought to know something
about the matter. The Journal bases its
view upon the failure to go to allotment
of tbe Norso American Gold company,
not a tenth part of whose shares were
applied for, the money subscribed being
consequently returned. The promoters
complained that tho American public
was frightened at the numerous il legitimate schemes put forward.   Much the
same sort of thing has taken place in
London, and we may take it that tlie
Klondike boom is pretty well nn its last,
legs here as well aa in the States. It
will eventually he all tlie hotter for the
sound concerns which are or will be put
Oil the market when all the trashy prospectuses are in the bands of ihe
buttermen and dust-collectors and put
to tlieir proper uses. A letter has been
received at Victoria, British Columbia,
from Dawson City, dated 10th December,
to the effect that the " mother lode " of
the Klondike placer diggings has been
discovered. Whilst this may be true, it
certainly does not wear an aspect of
probability, for experts nre divided even
as to the likelihood of there being any
one particular hody of ore which has
supplied' the gold found in the various
tributaries of the Klondike. However,
a hody of low-grade ore had been found
near Forty-Mile* bofore the Klondike Held
was discovered, and some other out-
eroppings havo been found in different
places, some uf which promised well
from the rough assays that could be
made -by Mr. Ogilvie, so that it is quite
possible au important find may have
been made. As to tho richness of the
ore, however, or the size of the ore body,
no reliable estimate can possibly have
been made, for the'simple reason that
means were not at hand, and this should
always be remembered when reports ol
this sort are published.���The ttialto.
CROW'S   NEST   COAL.
First Shipment to Fort Steele���Tho
Company's Piano.
Fort Steele Prospector: Teams arrived ou Saturday with severtl tons of
Crow's Xest coal for Carlin & Durick,
the local agents for the Crow's .Vest Coal
company. A block weighing 3201bs.
was left at The Prospector office, being
forwarded hy Mr. Fernie, manager, as a
sample for exhibition. It 1ms been
inspected by hundreds of people, and
the knowing ones pronounce it a first-
class article for blacksmiths or for general purposes. Although taken from a
point close to the cropping, the sample
is very firm and solid, showing no tendency to slacking. A further shipment
is expected this week, and hereafter
there will be a constant supply kept on
hand for blacksmiths.
William Blakemore, general manager
of the Crow's Nest Coal company, has
returned from a trip to tho old country.
At Vancouver the other day be said he
had recently made a close inspection of
the most modern mining plants in the
United States, especially with regard to
the use of electricity, and on his advice
tho directors have decided to put in
such a plant. Electricity will be used
for mining the coal, hauling it, driving
it, driving tbe ventilating fans, and
lighting, and, later on, water power may
he used.
Tho principal supplies purchased
abroad were the fire-bricks for lhe coke
ovens. These constitute a very important and extensive item, and will be
brought nearly 7,001) miles.
When Mr. Ulnkemorc left the mines
in September last he located a six-fool
seam, which has been sampled and
fully analysed, and found to produce
tbe most suitable coke for smelting
purposes. He left twenty men at work
at the mine, and this force lute since
been increased to fifty, who are under
the immediate control of Mr. Smith, the
mine superintendent. Mr. Blakemore
related a remarkable occurrence that
happened iu September last. During a
storm a 30-foot v*��iu was uncovered on
tlie south side of Coal creek, and operations have also heen carried on tiiere.
���\s the storm considerably affected the
valley, one of his first considerations on
big return would lie to decide where it
would be best to build the coke ovens
and aet up the colliery plant, and it may
bo that the ovens will lie removed nearer
to the Klk river. The lirst installment
of ovens will he fifty in number nnd
they will be increased as the trade
requires. Mr, Blakemore Mill leave for
tlie east in about six weeks'time to cou-
eludo business arrangements for the
summer's work and will then return and
remain at tbe mine for some month*

his home in tlie States, will render very
little service to Canada in rot urn for the

secure a larger value for their gold, and
not be compelled, as at the present time,
to accept $15 or ?!<>[per ounce taken oul

miner 11 come to Canada ou his return."
