Wc beg to,draw the attention ot Free
Miners to an advertisement in our
columns containing certain regulations
which are now published in The British
Columbia Gazette. The regulations aro
to prevent the forfeiture of mining properties owing to the lapse of iree miner's
certificates iu certain cases. The amendment is an exceedingly important one
and ciuno into effect Monday, Nov. 16.
Under the. past regulations a person
holding mining properties ''absolutely " forfeited oil his .rights to them if

J.ast week we chronicled the rising of
tho waters in the Kicking Horse river ���
caused by an ice jam which dammed
back the waters and caused them to rise
to an abnormal height and that the
���waters threatened to sweep the streets ,
of Golden. They are now doing it and
causing very serious damage to property
and may yet cauHc very serious dcstrnc

waters is found.

should fail to useall possible precautions
against allowing the certificate to lapse.

A correspondent to the Spokane Miner
& .Electrician declares the centre of attraction iu South East Kootenay is the
Eugene mine, nnd adjoining it the St.
Peter. These mines are acknowledged
to constitute one of the largest silver-lead
propositions In the world. There are
11,000 tons of oro on the dump, running
05 oi. of silver and 70 per cent, of load
to the ton. Sixty thousand tons of ore
have been blocked out, of an average
vaiue of (60 per ton, or, in other words,
the owners have (3,000,000 worth of ore
readv for transportation as soon as tlie
Crow's Nest road is open for traffic to
enable them to get it out. Seven hundred thousand dollars havo been offered
for the property, but at the present time
it is not for sale. The mine is 1,400 feet
above Movie Lako and within three-
quarters of a mile where the railroad
will pass. Connection will lie afforded
by a tramway two and a half miles in
West of the lake what is apparently
the same lead has been struck, with
showings similar to those of the Eugene,
and claims have been staked all over it.
Messrs. Knitzel, Johnson and Sunburn
havo bonded the claims east of the St.
Eugene to Mr. llarr, of California, for
(60.000���(1,000 payable in sixty days nnd
(2,000 payable in eight months and the
balance in twelve months, lie has put
iu a winter camp and started a .'-uo-foot
tunnel, from which he expects to strike
it rich. This claim shows nine inches of
���olid galena on the surface.
just at Golden it forms a delta of three
branches. The northern branch is the
main stream. Only during high water
aro the three branches running. The
C.I'.K. tracks runs along this stream and
leaves it at Golden on its northern side.
At the head of the delta commences the
town of Golden. The older part of it is
built along the northern side of the main
stream. The newer part is on the other
side and the greater portion of it lies to
the south of the delta. Some oi it, including the Hospital buitdings are right
in the delta, the other two brunches of
the stream running on either side. A
handsome bridge crosses at the neel; of
the delta, uniting the old ami new towns.
Some years ago the river broke bounds
and committed serious havoc. This led
to the river being well bunked and cribbed, whicli has since then kept it in
bounds. The top crib work and banking
is some feet above the main level of the
principal streets.
When the ice jam took place it wus
expected the strength of the witters
might force the jam out, kill a severe
frost followed the sudden rain and the
Tivor became frozen over from the Col*

Sin,-1 understand that a lie is being
circulated in Golden to the effect that
when last 1 visited there some days ago.
I had (300 stolen from me at the Kootenay house. It is a lie, pure and simple,
and must have lieen originated by some
spiteful individual who wished to do
that house an injury.

you will do justice to people who are
being maliciously lied aliout and confer

Joseph, who is a man of determination,,
declared he did not want the waters
there and conducted them by two

two of the nicest little rills of water���

water by tempororary banks formed of
snow and earth.
As soon us canals were being formed
on the streets and Golden was in dun-jor
ol becoming it miniature Venice or being
washed out, an appeal was made to the
government officials, who were fully
ulive to the danger but hud no power tu

Government property and railway property were now endangered. There was.
a consultation between the local hendii
of the departments. Mr. Griffiths, C.E.,
government commissioner. Mr. Erickson,

resolved ii possible to cut a free channel
from the Columbia tipthe Kicking Horso
and endeavor to give relief to the peill-
up waters. Mutters were nor.' commencing to look more serious, us additional
tco-jains had occurred iu tlieciiny**ii,and

great risk uf Golden being washed out,

Telegrams from the east go to show-
that , somo misapprehension exists at
Toronto mid elsewhere regarding the
grievances of certain men employed in
the construction of the Crow's .N'cBt I'ass
When work was about to commence
agents wero employed by Mr. Haney,
manager of construction, to secure navvies at Winnipeg and in Ontario and
Quebec for the contractors. Kvery man.
who desired employment was informed
of the terms; there was a printed form
setting forth the terms, which form he
had to read and sign. It was net forth
that the wages for navvies were (1.50
per day, and that board was (*1 per week
nnd that a small deduction would be
made for the doctors, as is done on every
public work where a large number of
men are employed. It was also stated
that those who choso to go to the work
would have to pay n reduced railway
fare, a cent per mile, from there starting
to Lethbridge or Macleod, which would
be deducted from tlieir pay, and that
they would not be paid except for actual
work; in other words, thoii* wages did
not begin when they left eastern points
for the west, or run oil while they were
moving from one place to another up
here, but were to be paid only for such
time as they put in in the ordinary way
on the dump. This is tho usual principle
A Toronto mechanic is not paid for the

iu tho morning, nor would he expect to
lie paid or to have his expenses defrayed
if the Toronto branch of the factory
closed down, and he had to travel to a

Of the 5,000 men now engaged on the

thorn. Those from Ottawa were apparently led to believe by an unauthorized
agent that thoy More to get shanty wages
from (20 to (20 per month with board

destination, although it is only fair to
tho person who employed them to say
that he denies having told them this.
He know, he says, that the shanty system was not lecognizedon railway works
and informed them that they would
havo to pay their railway fare, and must
expect when at work to bo paid not.by
the month but by the day. They wore
out of work, he adds, the lumber business being dull at the time, and were
to have the chance to earn (1.50 per day
or (5 a week after paying their board,
subject to the deduction of railway fare
und doctoring. The justices of the pence
belonging to tho Mounted Police, before
whom the matter was brought after they
hail been at work for some time, found
that these men had been misled, but the
case was appealed lo enable the agent at
Ottawa, or rather at Hull, to be heard.
This is all there is to the story about
"slavery and oppression" on the Crow's
Nest line. It was an unfortunate occurrence, but Mr. Haney was quite blameless, nor does blame ��� attach to anyone
connected with tho Canadian Pacific.
-Mr. Haney sees that the contractors
treat tbe men well,and is greatly respected by them.
A number of English immigrants,Londoners mostly, not fit to do heavy manual labor, came here, whether of tlieir
own accord or at the instance of employment agent! without authority from Mr-
Haney, is not clear, and somo were
Unable to stand the strain. The Welsh
navvies, who arrived in August or September, are sturdy fellows, accustomed
to work of the kind, and are doing well,
but immigrants of .the clerk class have
110 business railroading here or elsewhere. In several instances where tlu.se
���poor follows were overtaken by sickness.
Mr. Haney saw that they were cared
for, and gave them free transportation
to the east; but his action in this regard
is not to be taken as a precedent. It
will not do for weaklings to come here
without proper clothing, and without
the physical ability to earn a livelihood
at Biich ni'vere lalair as navvying, and
expect to bo provided for whether they
work or not.
Where so many men are employed
there will always be discontented and
even turbulent ones, but the great mass
have nothing to complain of. Board is
higher than in Ontario and Quebec, lie-
cause of the Ctwt of teaming food to the
camps, and of getting it thero by rail
from the cast, in tho first place; on tho
other hand, (1.60 per day is a higher
wage for unskilled labor than prevails in
the east.
The food is of the best quality, and
the camps are as comfortable as they
can be made under tho circumstances.
The work is progressing rapidly. The
rails will roach the summit beyond
Crow's Nest lake by the end of tho year,
and contracts for over 100 miles on the
other side have lieen lot and aro in process nf execution. While 1110 11110*111
have only n ono per cent, grade���one
foot in 100��� in tho mast difficult ascents,
a condition of things which will make it
by far tho easiest and bust triiuseontin-
tal road in America, there is an immense
amount of heavy bridging, tunnelling,
and cutting and filling. To secure Biich
a grade across the Rocky Mountains it
will be necessary to incur a large expenditure over and above the enormous
outlay called for on nil mountain roads.
The visitor to the North-West can see
tor himself close by Lethbridge what a
serious task it is. At that point the
broad valley and lofty coulees of the St.
Mary,s river have to be crossed. There
are IS bridges, one 3,000 feet long and
70 feet high, in n distance of 10 miles,
with 100,000 yards to lie cut and filled
per mile. West of Pinoher creek, where
one of the main forks of Old Man's ri ver
is crossed, the heavy work begins again,
and west of the summit past Elk river,
and down to Kootenay lake, it is u very
formidable undertaking indeed. The
Canadian Pacific authorities are pushing
it to completion with extraordinary
energy, and tho miners, to whom tho
rond will bring cheaper supplies and
cheaper smelting, are watching tlie advance with deep interest.���Daily Mail
and Empire.
There is something wrong somewhere
the manner that many of the employees havo beon treated who were cm
ployed for the construction of the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway. The chioi constructor's denial and explanations aro not
sufficient. Something more is wanted,
and that something_is_ttn'.cnquiry by the
Dominion Government into tho causes
of complaint. The allcgations"nrc_sori-
ous, more than breaches of contract. It
is asserted desirable emigrants have
been lured from their homos on false
representations. If true, who is responsible? The speciotis'^dofcnce put forth
by the Daily Mail & Empire only shows
the necessity for having an immediate
enquiry. The days of autocrats, on this
continent at least, aro over, although
there are attempts to play the part. But
we do not think the C.P.R. or its chief
constructor have [any desire to assume
tho role Jfjof autocrats or introduce a system ot white Blavery
among its employees. It is easier
to make charges than to prove them.
Corporations who employ mtiltitttdeB
are liable to have charges made against
thom, and these do not often concern
the outside world. Horc it is diSerent,
tho railway is being built largely by
Government aid, obtained from the people and the Government have a right on'
the people's demand to make an enquiry
anil if a state of matters exist as is nsssr-
tjd then there should bo some remedial
measures enacted to remove them and
prevent a recurrence. We ure sure that
I the C.P.R. in its own interest and for its
own good name would gladly hail such
au enquiry _and afford every'assistauce
during tlie investigation.

The International, the organ ot Wardner, has kicked at last, and justly. The
organ ol Fort Steele, for some rent-on
which it is hard to devine, has booniod
its little mining community not only by
mendacious advertisements, but by decrying overy other town that was
springing up iii South Kust Kootenny.
II these towns, according to its idea, are
no good, then God help those who have
put tlieir money iu Fort Steele. Many
have gone in with light hearts and heavy
purses but will leave with heavy hearts
and light purses. Fort Steele will never
be anything more than what it is, and
that is where the envy and Jealousy
comes In, which causes tbe backbiting.
Its organ had the following little slur u
"They have taken to raffling town lots
at Wardner, Hie townsite company having offered a number of them to a
proposed local band, to raise the wind
for wind instruments- Fort Steele Prospector."
The International in commenting on
this nasty paragraph explained:
The townsite company has donated
two lots valued at (150 each for  the
purpose mentioned.   If it had needed
(1,000 tbe  amount would have  been
given Just the same.   It is well enough
to be fair in mutters of this kind nnd not
let th. pen be guided by prejudice or
jealousy.   The Wardner townsite company has spent thousands of dollars for
improvements and within a few months
trill tpand  many thousands more in
-carrying out plans now matured.    Slurs
snd jibes never built up a town, a newspaper or an  individual.   Wurdner is
fortunate  in having  such  an advantageous location, and her people, in her
prosperity, have no ill feeling against
any other town iu the district.   On the
contrary, the greater the development of
th. other towns, the greater will be the
growth of Wardner, the natural supply
point of South East Kootenay. Wardner
people are  too busy these days to be
churlish or harbor any feeling of animosity toward other towns.    Therefore,
it 1. well enough for ull to be fair.   It is
better to be cheerful than to throw mud.
In this rich valley there is prosperity
ahead for all.   Wardner is on the main
lin. of the Crow's Nest rond and the
main line of prosperity us well, and her
people are willing to puss some of their
joy around to other communities that
stand in need of revivifying influence.
Let the down-hearted and the sad come
to Wardner, take a look at the railroad
grade, gaze upon tho work at the bridge
abutments,   see every artisan busy at
work, watch the increase in buildings,
look over the many inquiries addresred
to Mr. Cralian from the United States
and Canada, and he will go back home a
wiser and a better man.   This is no time
{or slurs or backbiting.    It is time for
everybody to "grab a root" and take
advantage of the glorious opportunities
that are to hand.    There will be dollars
In South Kast Kootenay the next few
yean by the thousands aud hundreds of
thousands, and those with ability, energy
and good will shall be in at tho harvest
time.  Get In line, get in lino. Wardner
1. all right and wants to see every other
town  in  the district the sumo.���Tho
a new resident who enjoys a large circle
of acquaintances In the Kootenays and
Alberta. Copt. M. II. Whiter-Fruser,
formerly of tlie Mounted Police, has
resigned and purchased an interest in
the Hobins Bros, livery nnd feed business. Mr. AVhite-Fraser will have the
general management of the business and
will undertake at once to enlarge it to
meet the growing necessities of Kust
Kootenay. Stages will be put on between
AVardner, Fort Steele, Cranbrook and
other points west, to meet the demand,
and tlie stables will lie equipped in the
best manner. With years of experience with the Mounted Police, no one
understands better than Mr. AVhite-
Fraser what care a horse should have.
He has also rented the east store-room
in the Ilenniger building and will open
a brokerage office ns soon as tho room is
roady for occupancy.���The International,
bia bad 'nearly everything in its favor
'when it came on the market; it possessed a-few shipping mines developed with
local capital; fortune had favored it with
great natural advantages as regards
climate, water communication, size and
extent of oro bodies, timber, game, etc.;
it had found favor in the oyes of shrewd
American investors; aticl tlie purre
strings of Europe were inclined to loosen
A little money was invested, more or
lesB tentatively, and of tho results
practically nothing is known. Directors
indulge iii Utopian forensts, ns usual, but
the public waits in vain to ascertain
facts. AVhat is being done on these
properties���nre there no mine managers?
If there iB no return on an investment it
is at least some satisfaction to know how
the the money has boen spent. The
government officials have done little or
nothing to mako known the resources nf
tlieir province, and yet they hope to
compete in this great .market with
established goldlields which spare no
time or troublo to give the public the
most complete ond reliable information
concerning their progress. This selfish
and shortsighted policy would almost
la-ad one to believe that those in whose
hands the fortunes of the province
mainly rest have no belief in its future
and are too busy lining their own pockets
at the expense of un Ill-informed public.

On the 8th of November at 2 p.m. the

under the stars and stripes on the
Kootenay river, says the Spokeiman-
llevlew. The launching was witnessed
by all the people of Jennings and waa
under the supervision of Captain M. L.
McCormack. Little Anita, the 5-yoar-
olp daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James
Harris, broke the bottle of champagne
over the bow and christened her the J.
V. Farrell. Few will forget the ceremonies and little Anita did her part
most admirable, amid the cheers of all.

Its Great Advantage, to the Mining
Industry of North East Kootenay.
The   object    of this  association  ..-
stated in its constitution is tho general
promotion  of tho mining industry in
North Kast Kootonay.   The  objoct is a
most comprehensive one and covers a
wide field.   It is a  surprise  that an
association has not hitherto been formed
in this district.    Had there been one in
its earliest mining days to disseminate
knowledge and assure some protection
to the intending investor that the information he was obtaining as to mining
properties and their owners was trustworthy,  the   district   of   North   East
Kootenay would have been in a different
position  to-day.   To-day  thero  would
have   been   many operating   shipping
mines where there aro now uono.   Capital is now again being attracted to North
East Kootenay; this will result in the
development of many properties that are
now  undeveloped.      One  great   purpose  this  association  enn purstio as a
bureau of information is by giving the
investing public such information as will
be of value.   There is a great tendency
in forming companies to over-capitalize,
and many a district in British Columbia
is on that account getting a black eye.
Another great evil is the formation nf
companies trading on the reputation of
other companies who hold good properties and who float tlieir stock on account
of their property being in close proxim
ity to thoso first-class companies.   What
is the position of affairs down in the
east due to this fact alone?  To such an
extent has this lieen done  anil  stock
peddled  off all over   tho country  in
companies whoso properties have turned
out worthless that the eastern people
have commenced to lose confidence in
British   Columbia   mining   properties.
Wild-cutting and over-capitalization are
evils that exist, probably not to any
great extent in East Kootenay, but there
arc indications.  An association like this
can bo the means of doing an immense
amount of good by exposing any wildcat scheme or over-capitalized company
which may appenr in public.   It will
also serve a good purpose in receiving
and  disseminating useful  information
regarding our mining properties, which
are the best in the whole country, to the
outside invosting world and letting it
know what good returns can be given for
money invested in tlio mining industry
of North East Kootenay.

For tho Good of th. Province.
The province of British Columbia is
desirous of attracting attention in tho
great markets of the world in order to
obtain capital and to increase its population. It has certain valuable commodities to offer in exchange���such us minerals of different kinds, valuable timber,
extensive fisheries and fruitful farming
lands. The owners of this natural wealth
have in their wisdom seen fit to offer
their goods in London���the greatest
market in the world.
It is, we believe, usually considered
prudent when endeavoring to obtain a
footing in a new market in which there
is keen competition to send the best
samples. Western enterprise, however,
has proved the fallacy of these old-world
business maxims we presume, for the
unples of British Columbian mineral
properties which have been offered in
this market have in a largo number of
cases been mere shoddy, and among
those few which have been sold how
many have been honestly worth tho
money paid for them? In this mart,
where the nations of the world are clamoring to sell their warns, sentiment has
been permitted to influence business,
and our Colonies liuve been favored
sometimes unduly. The confidence, of
the British investor was rudely shaken
in regard to Westralia, and this lesson
has not been forgotten.    British Colun.-
Whether the route to Klondike be via St. Michaels and
tlie Yukon, or via Dyea or
Skaguay and the Chilcut,
Chilcoot or White Passes or

which is the most likely, or
via the Edmonton, Ashcroft
and the different routes, the
Canadian Pacific Railway
will be the the best if not the
only route to travel by.
Full information will soon
be in the hands of all agents
of the Canadian Pacific Railway company, the company
are now making enquiries to
ascertain beforo advising the
public which will be the best

Fort Steele is now following the
example of Golden in introducing a
telephone service. Tiiere is a wider
field in Fort Steele, as there nre so many

be wise and endeavor to get these hooked

town considerably aud assist in making
it a centre.
The fSOtli of November was St. Andrew's
day and all over tbe world it was celebrated. Scotsmen are everywhere, and
St. Andrew is tlieir patron saint. East
Kpotcnuy had its celebration and Fort
Steele again took the lead. Dinner,
banquet and assembly formed part of
the celebration. The Scotsmen in Golden
kept it up to a lata early hour with song,
whiskey and dunce.
Messrs. James A. Harvey and II. W.

The Calgary curling club has arranged
(or a four days' honspiel extending from
24th to tbu 27th January inclusive, commencing on Monday and ending on

further augmented hy two more sisters
who are to arrive from Montreal.
The Kootenay Guide for November has
the following advertisement: "The
Calgary Herald is the only paper that
gives all thu news of Alberta ami East
Kootenay. Published daily and weakly."
This statement is just a bit too tall; it
approaches the regions of mendacity.
There are four good papers published iu
East Kootenay, which are superior news
organs for East Kootenay than our friend
the Calgary Herald. The fact can be
conceded it is the only weakly daily in
Alberta, but we are afraid the rest of the
press in Alberta will not make any
further concessions. This is nothing
like tooting your own horn; we do it
ourselves, but not in such a blatnnt
maimer, and succeed.
Golden has now been supplied with a
long felt want, in the form of a skillful
mechanic, able to repair, arrange and
adjust all mechanism that has gone
into disrepair, whether in watches,
clocks, sewing machines, guns, ritica and
pistols nnd restore them to good order
and condition. Wong See, a most expert
machinist, has removed from Kamloops,
taken up his abode in Golden and opened
up a place of business ou the main street
between tbe Kootenay house and the
Queen's hotel. Orders from a distance
will be skillfully executed. There is now
no necessity for sanding orders to the
coast. They can be more economically
executed iu Golden. Just give the
Celestial a chance and he will show you
what he can do.

Now Divisional Point on the C. P. R.
The authorities of the C. I'. It. huvc
all but finally fixed upon Field as the
new divisional point, instead of Donald,
whicli will be abandoned. It was hoped
at one time that Golden would have been
selected from its importance, being at
the head of navigation of the I'pper
Columbia river nnd the chief town in
East Kootenny, There were, however,
difficulties in the way. Tho company do
not own any land or water rights in or
near Golden, and all these would require
to be acquired for the works for tlie now
divisional point. The chief drawback
was the liability to tlie station, sheds
and shops being flooded by it sudden
uprising of the Kicking Horse river.
This is now being experienced. Tlie low-
line of rails and switch east of the wuter
tank uro now flooded. Tliis makes
shunting difficult and dangerous, as cars
are apt to become derailed. The present
workshops at Donald will bo removed tn
Revclstoke, where new workshops and
stables are now lieing built, in a substantial manner, of brick. The company
has plenty of land there, whicli it can
utilise for its increased buildings. The
change from Donald to llevelstoke is now
guing on and will be finally accomplished
in the course of next year.
At Fiold there nre already extensive

An Invention that will Effect <*. Revolution In Packing.���Carta Being
Manufactured In Goldon.
W. Maloney, of Calgary, who has recently patented several useful inventions
in harvesting machinery, etc., has lately
Invented a cart on new principles which
is claimed to possess important advantages over any other means of freighting
to the Yukon und in the other mining
region* In British Columbia. It has
but one wheel, measures only 30 inches
across its widest part, is strongly built of
wood and iron and will carry SOOlbs over
any kind of country with ono iiony. A
vehicle possessing these advantages is
precisely what is required nt this time
in connection with the immense over-
land traffic to the Yukon und Peace river
districts and will also bo found to bo of
great  value  in tho mining regions of
from the mines which nre at present inaccessible ou account ot the absence of
good wagon roads.
During the past season it cost *-l'.0 per
ton tn pack supplies to the International
Ilusin and to Copper creek from Carbonate. With a little widening of the trail
in n few places, these supplies can lie
carried over the same ground in these
carts for ��15 per ton aud ore can be
brought out to the river nt the same or a
less figure. The advantages ol this cart
arc therefoie at once made apparent and
its general use will surely effect a revo
hit ion in the present expensive methods
of packing.

utes thus making the cart suitable for
either snow or baro ground.    The cart
will not weigh over 100 lbs. and with a
load ot TiOOlbs. can be drawn by a small
pony with ease.    Thus a tun of goods
can be carried on four of these carts by
four ponies while the same load would
require 13 pack horses to carry it.    The
initial cost is much less than an outfit

sure to find a ready snlo all over the

Golden for the immediate supply of 100
