Purchased from Russia in 1807 for
$7,200,000, Aluskriwus 11 portion of the
United States (or 30 years without attracting tho attention its resources and
wealth merit. Kvery where apathy and
ignorance preiivilcd in regard to this
latest territorial acquisition. Suddenly
this was changed. In a single day the
eyeB ol tho entire world were turned to
Klondike, anil there they remain fixed.
On tho 17th of lust July the steamer
Portland Bailed Into pint with 111800,000
of gold on board, and lo the ends of
tho earth was telegraphed the story nf
the rich placer diggings discovered
along the Klondike and its tributaries.
Then began thnt rush to the new mines
which has filled the news columns of
the press with its varied experiences for
four months. Ten thousand men
joined in it. Some are now at the
mines; others are scattered all along
the trails from the coast to the Klondike; still others ure at Juneau, Dyea
and Skaguay, awaiting a more favorable time for the journey, while not a
few have returned to civilization, sat*
isfled with their experience or to niiike
a fresh start under bettor circumstances. Great and exciting as was
this lirst rush, it wns but the advance
ripple of the great wave of gold hunters that will roll in upon the Alaskan
coast the coming spring. Probably not
less than 50,000 men will start for the
Yukon next year, and possibly four
tinieB this number inuy go. For this
reason a clear and succinct description
of Alaska and its resources, with u
brief review of its routes ot travel must
be of interest even to those who huve
no intention of seeking the northern
wilderness.
In the lirst place, it must be understood thnt the Yukon river flows partly
through Canada and partly through the
United States, and thut the Klondike
region is on the Canadian side of the
boundary line, though good placers, possibly as good us those of the Klondike,
exist on the American side of the line.
Beginning at the Arctic ocean, the
boundary line runs due south along the
141st meridian as fur as Mt. St. Elias,
10 marine leagues from the Pacilic,
whence it follows the coast line, preserving a distance of 10 marine leagues
from it, in a southeasterly direction to
the latitude of 54 degrees and 40 minutes,which becomes the southern limit.
All east of that line belongs to Canada, part being in the Northwest Territory and part in the province of British Columbia, the dividing line run
ning east and west across both lakes
Bennett and Teslin. The present gold
discoveries nre all north of the British
Columbia line, but no ono oan tell
what may he revealed in the future.
That portion west of the boundary
line and belonging to the United States
constitutes Alaska pioper, and contains
a total area of 017,703 square miles, of
which 37,690 square miles consist of
islands along the coast. It is only on
these islands and a narrow strip of the
adjacent mainland that settlements
have been made and industries developed,except the gradual development
of gold placers along the Yukon, ending
with the recent startling discoveries.
The towns of Alaska consist of but hall
a dozen of any prominence, besides the
new places on the Yukon. They are
Sitku, the capital, Juneau, Wrangel,
New Metlakahtla, Kodiuk and Dutch
Harbor. Sitkn is on Rurnunff island,
off the southeast coast, and has a population of about 500. Juneuu is on tho
mainland, about 100 miles further
north. It is the chief commercial city
and during the winter season its population exceeds 3,000. New Jlotlakuhtla
is a mission and trading point near the
southern extremity, and Wrangel is a
trading point ou tho coast nt the mouth
of Stickeen river. Koiliak is on the
island of the same name south of tho
Alaskan peninsula, and is the seat of
the salmon packing industry. Dutch
Harbor is on the island of Unahisku, ono
of the Aleutian group, whero vessels
pass from the I'ariliu  into Buhring sou.
Alaska Is a region of mountains,
there being no great valleys nor plains.
Along the coast a high range of mountains rises almost abruptly from the
water's edge, deeply indented with long
arms of the sea. These present a series
of Alpine peaks of the most picturesque
description, the highest being the Fair-
weather nlpe, exceeding 16,000 feet,
St. Elias and Logan exceeding 18,000
feot, and Wrangel, fnrthor to the northwest, said to be still higher. Down
the canyons of these coast mountains
many tremendous living gluoiers flow
steadily to the ocean, filling the bays
and inlets with great masses of floating
ice. Beyond tbis coast range the mountains are lower, but almost continuous
as far north us the Arctic, and as fur
east as the great plains of Mackenzie
river region. Yet there are muny fine
mountain valleys, with occasional
Btretches of rolling table land, in summer time brilliant with a carpet of
.grass, mosses and flowers.
The coast mountains divide tho climate of Alaska into two distinct
classes. A branch of the warm Japan
current skirts the coast, its influence
modifying the climate of the islands
anu adjacent mainland. The average
temperature for July at Sitka is but
65 degrees, while the mean winter temperature is as high us 32 degrees. This
is the most equable climate in the
United States. The same oansos produce copiouB ruins or continuous driz-
sles, thore being but an average of 00
clear dayB in a year. Aoross tho sum-
Bit of the ooast range   conditions are
[very  different.     The  rains are cut off
I by  the   high   mountains,   and    the
I warm oeean air jh not felt.    From No-
i vember to April the mean temperature
j remains continuously below the freezing
point, often remaining for weeks at u
I time below zero ami occasionally going
I us low as 00 or 70 degrees below   zero.
It snows about oue-tKird of the time, in
winter, but  the snow does not become
excessively deep, though frequently the
storms are very severe.
The mean temperature of the interior
during the summer months is 00 to 70
degrees, there being ninny very warm
days. The Yukon region, being no far
north, has the long summer .lays and
long winter nights of that latitude,
though, being south ol the Arctic circle, it just misses the continuous day
and continuous night of the Arctic
summer und winter.
Aside from gold, the chief resources
of Alusku aro timber, lish and fur-bearing animals, including the famous fur
seals which are giving the United
States, Great Britain, Russia ami Julian so much trouble. Salmon are
plentiful in all the streams of the
islands and mainland, and millions are
annually packed for market, Halibut
and cod. herring ami smelt, or ooln-
chou, abound and have become of great
commercial importance. The seal and
sea otter in the water, anil tbe fox,
bear, lynx, otter, beaver, etc., on land,
contribute thousands of tbeir skins annually to the world's fur supply. The
fur trade is bandied by the Alaska
Commercial Company and the Northwest Trailing and Transportation Company, both of which have headquarters
on SI. Michaels island, near the mouth
of the Yukon, while the Hudson's Bay
Company operates on the Canadian
side of the line.
Conl and coal oil have both been
discovered and may be of future value.
The timber of the coast and islands
grows very large, owing to the humid
atmosphere. It is chiefly cedar, spruce
and hemlock. It has been little used
thus far, though several small mills
huve cut it for local purposes. The
timber of the interior is much smaller,
ami is fouTld only along the lakes and
water courses. It is chiefly spruce,
aldor, Cottonwood and willow. Several
small mills have been taken in for cutting this timber. Agriculture is ns
yet an experiment, but little having
bien attempted. Conditions on the
islands are favorable for grass anil such
vegetables and cereals as mature quickly. Even along tho Yukon region
summer vegetables may be grown and
possibly wheat. Afeivyears will show*
what can be done in agriculture and
stock raising.
The great interest iu Alaska at the
present time centers in the Yukon
placers on both shies of the boundary
line. Prospecting on the Yukon began
in 1881. In the fall of 1883 the
tirst gold was brought to Juneau from
the intorior. The next year 300 men
crossed the mountains and the number
of miners steadily increased each your.
The lirst work was on Stewart river ami
then Big Salmon, both in Canada. In
1880 the Forty-Mile creek placers, also
in Camilla, were discovered, and the
next year the famous Franklin gulch,
on the same stream. In 1802 the Miller
ereek diggings were found, also a tributary of Forty-Mile, ami on the Canadian side of the line. The next year
thero was a large influx of miners, fully
300 working in the Forty-Mile distiict.
In 1603 tlio first important discoveries on the American side of the line
wero made on Birch creek, and the
town of Circle City, now having 500 log
houses, was started on the Yukon ns a
supply point. The next year over
$400,000 were taken out along Birch
creek and Forty-Mile. In 1895 Eagle
and Porcupine creeks begun to produce
in the Birch creek district. The total
output of that vein* exceeded $700,000.
In August, 189(1. it was reported at
Forty-Mile and Circle City that wonderfully rich placers lnnl been discovered on the Klondike, a Small tributary
of the Yukon entering that river about
50 miles southeast of the international
boundary and on Canadian territory.
There was a great rush to the new diggings, the older ones being nearly deserted. In a few days $1,000 wero
taken out on Bonanza creek, a tributary
of the Klondike. By January 1, 1807,
400 claims had been located on Bonanza
and Eldorado creeks, and 200 on Hunker
creek, and Inter many others ou Bear,
Gold Bottom an.l Too-Muoh-Gold creeks
and their tributaries.    Fully $1,400,- '
000 were taken from the Yukon placers
ill 1800.
It was not so much the amount ol
gold brought out by the lirst Steamer to
come down lust summer, as the news
that this was the result of but n little
work in a few elaiins only, anil that
thore would have been many times us
much had the hundreds of other claims
been worked in time to send the gold
out, which caused the exoitement. The
method of working these mines is te
sink a shaft into tho frozen ground in
winter, taking out the rich gravel near
bed-rock anil piling it Up to be washed
out when Ihe water runs in summer
time. For this reason the gold washed
out last summer could not be sent
away, and will not bo brought down
until next July, when it is expected
that several millions of dollars will
come out ns the result of tho lirst year's
work along tho Klondike The commercial point for the Klondike distrlot
is the new town of Dawson City, situated ou the Yukon just below the
mouth of the Klondike ami reached by
river steamers.
The Yukon gold Welds extend for a
thousand miles along the stream, with
a width of 500 miles. In this vast area
there are hundreds of streams and
gulches, offering ample room for tho
thousands of gold seekers to prospect for
new diggings. The. new discoveries re-;
portod this year are on Dominion ereek
and on tho tributaries of the Stewart
river, on the Canadian sido, and on '
Munnook creek and its tributaries on
the Alaska side, near the mouth of the
latter the new towu of Rampart City
having sprung up.

the building beyond the breaking of an
occasional pane of glass. The day of
twenty-four hours is divided Into
watches—eight hours long at nigbt anil
four during the day. Thus 'there Is always at least one of the observers
practically in ihe clouds, for most phenomena observed ou Ben Nevis nre of
great Interest and benii.y. As the observers are practically in lhe clouds for
most of the time, many opportunities
nre afforded lor minutely examining
the optical efl'eets of mist or cloud ou
the rays of the sun or moon, when n
thin, -almost Imperceptible, film of
scud-cloud or mist covers are formed,
These coronne, as Is well known, consist of colored rings arranged concentrically round the moon or siiii. Each
ring has all the usual spectroscopic or
rainbow colors to more or less perfection arranged with the red belt outside.

Prior to the advance of winter, the
observatory is stocked with coals,
tinned food, and sundries for nine
months. The provisions are conveyed
on horseback by way of the bridle
path. In winter the telegraph-wire is
ihe observers' sole melius of communicating wilh tbe lower world. Snow
falls to the depth of fifteen feet and terrific gales prevail.
Animal life Is somewhat rare on the
summit, but an occasional fox or
weasel may be observed lu the rocks.
Snow bunting build tbeir uesls regularly In the cliffs below the observatory,
and In winter are quite tame. The observers have on more than one occasion caught mice In the building, and
their existence there bus given rise to a
good deal of controversy. About a year
ngo a live frog was taken to the observatory, where It has remained ever
since, nnd, although partaking of nothing In the way of food, It seems as
lively us when It was taken up.
UP-TO-DATE CAMPING.
Every Improvement lo Make Life in

Not so very long ago   when   people
went camping it really meant they
went "roughing ll." The modern camper has kept abreast of the limes and
has every Improvement to make life Iu
the woods or by llie river bunk a pleasure.
Occasionally we see a remnant of the
ancient system—a large unwieldy boat
or wagon laden with persons dressed lu
their oldest clothes, with sufficient baggage for a polar expedition, rumpled
canvas being much in evidence. To go
buck to lirst principles the real joy of

now spot each night, but this involves
too much labor. The modern camper is
well represented ln the scene present* .

having afternoon ten after the fatigues
of the day. Usually these pretty, luce-
curtained   tents with their sheltering
awnings are pitched near others similar In all particulars, where the advantage of a large tent for "smokers" and
occasional dinners may be had. These
tents have board floorings, the rain ls

Ho Was a Clever Thief.
While a Well-to-do Parisian was re
turning recently by train from Havre,
during the lirst hour his only  fellow
passenger in the compartment wns a
] young man, who made himself very
j agreeable.    Then others got  in. uml
j talk was general.    Finally Hie  Paris-
I l:iii dropped    asleep,    Presently    tho
young mini, turning to lhe other pns-
' sengers, wllh u wink toward the sleep

piny n good joke on my uncle," and be
unfastened the strap by which a small
traveling bag was slung over tlie shoulder of the sleeper.    "I'll  change into

nnd my uncle will wake np and think

The others grinned appreciatively,
nnd ihe young man presently slipped
out with the bug. Soon after the own

THE OUTLOOK 1898.
Railway rumors arc life at present,
and as any, or rill of Ihem ; hnve a direct
bearing on this section, are of inte est
10 all residents of thc Boundary country.
From all tbat can bo gathered it would
6eem tbat the C. P. R. intenda if possible to obtain control of all lhe different
railway lines likely to build into ihis pan
of the province, and thus snfl.i all opposition as regards the future transportation facilities q[ the whole Southern
portion of British Columbia. That this
would be a masterstroke on the part cl
tbe big corpora'iou is certain, but the
question as tu what the effect will be on
the interests of the country thus shut off
Irom any effective competition in tbe w iy
of an alternative route, is a most serious
one. It is too Q u'y yet to indulge in a*iy
misgivings on ttiii account. The reported purchases nuy never be completed, and there is little sense in meeting trouble halfway. Anyway the control of the carrying trade by one corporation whose interests are boun i up with
the prosperity ol the country, are no
more |to be dreaded than a combine
among a number of roads that might be
competing for tho carrying trade of the
dislr ct, and that the history of railroads everywhere teaches us is always
possible,
-t-
There Is liltle need for residents, and
owners of mines and businesses here to
become agitated in anyway over these
reported deals. Take the mineral resources of the Boundary country into
consideration ior a few minutes, and It
will become clear how utterly preposterous is the idea, that anyonecorporation,
no matter how great and soulless they
may be, can so handle the district as
to crush it with heavy freight and; other
charges. Tbe condition ol things hero
will not permit this tc be done even if a
railway company, having the sole control of the traffic werednclined to do so,
in utter disiegard of the prosperity of
the district fiom whence lhe great bulk
of their trade will be drawn for all time
to come. The simple reason of this is
that much of the ore found here is of
too low grade to stand heavy transportation charges, and consequently local
treatment must be resorted to, which
will not only be the cause cf many ap-
parantly worthless pioperties being
opened up and worked, but the operation of the necessary reduction works
will so increase the population of the
district as to make it one of
tbe most popoulous centers in
the known world. It may seem strange
to say that the necessities of any place
pr people will be their salvation and
ground of financial success, but it must
be apparapt to anyone who considers
this matter that such is the case here in
a most eminent dogree,
The mii ing of the ore in any distiict
is but half tbe work in connection with
the extraction of the full values contained in it, and if shipped direct Irom the
mine to a foreign smelter, or one located
in some adjoining district for treatment,
the producing district, simply looses hall
■—and the half at that_, that attracts and
holds a permanent population.* Qf the profits of its mines. No country, and the same
applies in proportion to districts, can
ever become rich, or attract and main-
lain a permanent population, with all
the constquent -.y- images peculiar to
(he best state IA cmbz mon, and mod
ern society,tha<-s;nip}yactsasthe feeder
to some other section, which taking their
raw ores, turps them into bullion, pays
itg own charges thereon, and bandB the
balance only, bock to the party who is
content to sell bis raw product for what
be can get for it, Nature has decreed
lhat tbis state ot affairs never shall exist
here in tbe lioundary country, by placing every facility for local treatment
within the bounds of tbe district itself,
and the lull development of the re
sources of tbe distiict along these
linos will gurantee, not one but several
railways, all the traffic tbeycan possibly
handle and that very speedily too, The
railway traffic in Ibis section will not be
in the hauling away of the raw ores for
treatment, but in the more profitable
trade peculiar to a rich and populous
mining country, having within itself all
the natural resourses to assure success.
and which there is every indication will
Soon be ii'imed to the fullest degree.
At tbe present time there is a proposition before the Rosslftpd council, made
by a Mr. FJgie, to erect reduction works
St or near that place to cost not over
p. 1 ,ooo,aoo,and which are to treat ore having a total value of ty per ton at a profit to the mine producing it.   If Mr.
filgirte carries out this- scheme be will
cooler a boon on the Rossland camp,
and doubtless makea handsome fortune
himself, as be richly deserves to do.
We shall watch with interest the progress
of Mr. Elgie'6 proposition, for what can
be done there can certainly be repeated
here, probably at greater advantage,
and more profit 10 tbe miner owners of
this distiict, than to lhat of the Koss-
land-Trail mining section.
-*t-
We must not however loose site ol the
fact that sev.ral propositions have been
made looking towards the establishment hereof plants sullable forthelocal
treatment of tho ores of this district.
The proposed process is smelting, which
perhaps more than any other is particu
Marly fitted to ibe reduction of the great
bulk of the ores of tbe whole southern
poition of liritish Columbia. We need
not fear however, lhat if Mr. Elgie has a
process for ihe r.duction of Rossland.
Trail oies al a much lower cost than is
possible by smelting, and il it proves
equally as effective as th.it process, tbat
the parlies proposing to operate here
will Irv one whit behind in gaining possession of and establishing that, or an
equally effective andchea^m.thod here
for treatment of our ores.
-t-
Taking a survey of the entire situation as it .*rff: cts this district at present,
it must be aamitted that tho outlook is
remarkably encouraging. There is put
little doubt but that the advent of
the incoming year will bring
with it results that will be lhe means of
establishing prosperity among those
who have lived here for years pinning
their faith to the future of this district,
,ind bringing along with it that much
*ished lorii'lluxol population and capital, always necessaiy to insure the permanent success of any section, having
natural recourses to support tbem,
That lhe Kettle river section and the
whole Boundary district possesses this
in a higher degric peihaps, than any
stmiliar area known today, is too well
established to need empatbizi ig.
THE LIBERAL PLATFORM.
BIG I AND LITTLE YOU.
In its issue of November 27th the
Boundary Creek Times pays ihe Miner
some attention, not altogether of a
friendly or 11 itteiing nature, however.
The trouble with tbe editor of the Times
is, tbat he has to defend a most urjust
and rediculous action on the part of bis
masters, the Liberal party, and as tba'
cannot be done in the present instance
by an honest straight forward statement,
it resorts to the only weapon which
priggish and cowardly ] urnalists use
with any seeming effect. No explana
tion worthy the name is given, why Mr.
Tempteman, a resident of Victoria,
should have the appointment to the vacant senatorshp which by right and
custom belongs to the mainland, but instead a torrent of abuse is directed
against the editor of the MiNF.K that
could only eminate from a mind and nature, distorted by self conceit, if not naturally vicious from first. We feel but
a contemptuous pity for the editor of
the Timen.

Turner administration has not come like
a thunderbolt out ot a clear sky, for the
Liberal convention was called for the
express purpose of n'.riking a blow at
the present government. The Economist has no desire to criticise the platform prepared for the British Columbia
Liberals, and is greatly mistaken if the
majority of that party will not repudiate
the words put in their mouths by the
gentlemen who drafted tbe platform.
-§-
Provincial politics are approaching a
particu'arly interesting condition jist at
present. The meeting of the legislature
is not far off, and thc two parlies that
comprise the present bouse are each preparing to make the best showing in
their power during the coming session,
so that they may have a record to go to
tbe country with, when the next election
takes place. In the past history of the
province it has been a case of the "In's"
and the "Outs" party lines having been
disregarded, but all appearance now
point to the fact that provincial politics
will be carried on party lines in the
future, and the first fight of the kind will
be made when the legislature dissolves
after the coming session, and tbe verdict of the people asked as to what shall
be the futurp policy ot the province, and
who shall have the direction of its
affairs.
-§-
Just what the verdict will be is extremely doubtful. There is no doubt
but that fault, and serious fault at that,
is to be found with the present adminit
tration. but even under these conditions,
is thore any guarantee tbat if the present party wero turned out, and the opposition put in their placeB, that wo
would have an abler or more painstaking government. What the new platform and policy blocked out may inspire
them to do, must be left to the future to
reveal, but in the past the chief
work of the opposition in the
house has been opposing the government, right or wrong, under all conditions. That this was not sensible, or
likely to be commended by the people
of the country is selfevident.
-t-
There is little doubt but what the platform of the local Liberals is a weak one.
The majority of its best clauses are simply a recommendation ofthe policy now
followed in these matters by the present
administration, while its denunciatory
sections show a spirit of jralous vindic-
tictivcnessunwoitliy of statesmen,
-X-
It Is very easy to criticise and everybody knows there is always room for reform ition, but the question to bedectded
at the next e cciion is; what measure of
reform is necessary, and will any advantage be gained by turning ont the pre.
sent ailininistrat (in, and electing the
promoters of this new Liberal platform
to fill their places? The answer that
was given to the same party of "Oats" at
the last general election was not altogether satisfactory to them; and there is
good reason to believe they will still be
in the position they now occupy when
the ne»t general election is over. This
may or may not be to the advantage ol
he country generally, and may be dis
appointing to many aspiring politicians,
who imagine they were created especially to fill tbe position of cabinet ministers
As a rule such disappointments receive
little sympathy irom thc pub'ic and the
defeated aspirants are left to console
themselves hy bugging their own mi ery.

this seems to have found room for expression through the medium of tha new

Candidates Getting in Trim for the Coining Contest
Like the proverbial "calm before the
storm" civic matters are pbenominally
quiet at pre.-ent.
Two citizens have, however, declared
their intentions of becoming candidates
for the office of mayor at the forthcoming election. These two are Mr, Jeff
Davis, the Bridge street meichant, and
Mr. Robert Hewitt, one of the proprietors and manager of the Grand Forks
brewery.
It is just probable that there will be a
third candidate in the field when the
election takes place, but as yet no information ot a reliable character bas
reached this office regarding the determination to run a thiid ticket. It is
possible however that such may be the
case and if so especially lively times
may be expected from now on until election day.
Tbe total registered vote of the city
when th* books closed last Tuesday
evening was seventy-three. Fully
twenty of these registered votes will be
absent from the city on election day,
leaving a total of about fifty that can be
counted on to cast tbeir votes on polling day,
It is expected tbat a meeting will be
beld towards the close of the coming
week to nominate a complete ticket for
mayor and alderman. If an opposition ticket is brought out to oppose these
candidates nominated at tbis meeting,
the fight for civic honors, will then be
between two parties and the electors can
tike tbeir choice.
NEEDS ATTENTION.
Let a Mass Meeting be Called to Discuss the
Feasibility of Sending a Delegation to
Victoria.
In consequence of the many matters of
importance to this section likely to be
dealt with at the forthcoming meeting of
the legislature, the Miner wishes tosug-
gest the advisability of calling a public
meeting at an early date to consider the
question when the legislature meets in
January. That tbis 's necessary, will be
appa-ant if a moments attention is given
the matter, in consequence of tbe various railway and oihei public schemes
affecting this point especially, that is
certain to come before the house during
this session. Tbat railway legislation
of a most important order will bave to
be undertaken, and that its final determination will be ot the most vital interest to Grand Forks and the entire section surronding it, is an absolute certainty. Chief an ong these things the
question of redistribution will requite
especial attention, for the simple reason
tbat it is understood that at
present there is a movement on
foot to cut the present district
into two ridings, the d vision line running from Nonh to South, by which
means this poi Jon of tbe present district will be thrown in with the more populous farming districts along Okanagan lake and about Vernon. Tbe interests of these two sections are almost
entirely dissimilar, and the 11 ore popu
lous northern sections of ihe riding so
formed would control the election to a
certainty and in all probability elect a
man who although he might be a thorough agriculturist, would have a very
meager knowledge of mining matters,
or the needs of a mineral district. Steps
should be taken to prevent any such division, and to see that the present ttn-
wieldly constituency is divided by an
east and west line drawn through it in
the vicinity of Pentieton, thus divding
it into North and South Ridings, and
placing the mining interest of the Bjuth
in a position to elect a representlve
qualified to deal intelligently with tbeir
interests, while the [agricultural districts
of the North could also select a candi
date having the peculiar qual fications
necessary to do tbem the greatest good.
We do not wish to raise anyunusuUly
or unnecessary excitement in regard to
this matter, but simply wish to em phi-
size the fact, tbat if the people of Grand
Forks and the Boundary country are to
obtain any ir.fluenr.e or control ovei their
own public and political destiny, that
they must take a firm stand and make
their determination to have fair treatment understood. "Eternal vigilence is
tbe price of liberty.
A CONTEMPTIBLE CUR AT LARGE.
The Dog Poisoner Gets in his Work Again
This'Week.
Several dogs tbe property of residents of tbis city were poisoned Thurs
day morning by eating posioned meat
t'nat had been scattered throughout tbe
city during the night The indiviiual
Who put this poison out must be possessed of but little more humanity than tbe
poor brutes that suffered at hia miserable
bands. Tbis is tbe second time that tbis
dog poisoner bas perpetrated his contemptible act in this community and
Caused the loss of animals valuable to
tbeir owners. Such individuals deserve
atd should get a short drift out of tbe
cointry, or be given a term at Kamloopf
at sard labor. A dog poisoner under
any circumstances is a low cowardly cur,
who has not got the moral courage to
tak* even chances like a higbwaym n,
but vould slip around at tbe dead hour
of tight and bteal the pennies off his
dead nother's eyes, then sne k off and
congratulate himself on his smartne-s.

Mr. A. K. Stuirt of Midway, was an
arrival in Grand Forks last Saturday
on buriness connected wirh his office, as
duty collector of inland revenues. Mr.
Stuart bas just relumed from Vancouver and Victoria and reports things lively on the coast, busim-si in general being much improved, largely on account
of the Klondyke bo-rm. which be asserts
is much greater than anvone not brought
into actual contact with it can imagine.
When in Victoria Mr. Stuart interviewed the members of the local government in ralation to distribution and other
matters affecting the interests of lhe
Boundary country, and states that al
though they are convinced of the importance of this district, and the neces
sity for better representation under the
present condition of affairs, that they
incline to hesitate before committing
themselves to any new measure granting fuller representation, for the reason
that tbe rush to the Klondyke and the
North during the coming season may so
alter the centre of population as to upset all present calculations, and render the wisdom of any legislation of tbe
kind extremely doubtful.
In reference to the establishment of
early railway communication throughout the Boundary country, Mr.Staurt was
given to understand that steps would be
taken during the present session to insure active construction of some one of
the various projected lines through the
district at once. This at least will be
welcome news to all residents of this district, for good transportation facilities
are what is needed here to bring the
whole exlent of Southern, B. C, lying
between the Similkameen valley and
Christinia lake into world wide prominence.
Quarantine Still On,
As yet Mr, Hickenbottom, dominion
veterinary|inspector,bas not received any
word from the U. S. officials, but in order to facilitate matt rs he has decioed
to accept inspection papers signed by
any veterinary recognized by tho State
officials of Washington. Owners ol
horses having such certifier ,te; will be
at liberty to go through without any detention here.
M.*. Hickenbottom exp»cts to receive
enough Mnllern to test fifty horses to
day. The resolution p;esed by the city
council dealing with this matter and
recommending the inspector of the
State Veterinary of Washington is a
sensible one, a consulta ion between that
official and Dr. Hickenbottom here
would be a satisfactory method of settling all doubts in the public mind in reference to this serious question.
Later—Just as we go to press Mr.
Nelson, veterinary inspector lor the
State of Washington,arrived in the city.
Messrs. Norris & Smith wishes it distinctly understood that all sanitary
work must be settled for before the loth
of each month or steps will be taken to

Mr. E. Inbody, tbe whole souled and
genial proprietor of that popular hotel,
the Cosmos, met^vith a misfor'uoe tbis
week tbat broke bim all up for a while.
Ed., as everybody knows was tbe owner
of a single-footer tbat he thought more of
than he did ot his best girl, and it isover
the loss of this favoriie horse tbat he
does not wear the same old smile. Last
Tr esday evening Ed. took bim to the
river to water as usual, and after he had
satisfied his thirst, started to return
to tbe barn with him, tbe horse
stopped short never to go again. Not
dreaming that the animal was sick, Ed.
gave him a gentle dap to start him up,
when suddenly he raised np on bis hind
feet and pawing tbe air with his fore feet1
fell dead in bis track. As to all outward appearance the horse was in perfect health when ho left the burn there
is a vast difference of opinion as to tbe
cause of bis death, although the general
impression seemed to be that it was lock
j iw.

No new applications are before the
board only renewals. The board will
consist of Acting Miyor Hepworth,
Ri.hard McCarren and some person
yet to be appointed by the Li.utenant
Governor,
Bridge Street is the Dividing Line Between
the First and Second 'Ward.
The regular weekly session of the city
council was held yesterday at the usual
hour with all tbe members present excepting the mayor, A. L. and W. K. C.
Manly.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read and adopted,
tbe matter of introducing a bylaw dividing the city into wards was taken up for
consideration.
Alderman McCallum urged upon the
council the necessity of dividing the
city into three wards,
Alderman Johnson said that he was
in favor of making three wards, provided that it could be arranged so that each
could be represented by duly qualified
alderman.
Acting M yor Hepworth and Alderman Davis could not see the necessity
of making three wards at this time.
An ex imination of the voters' list revealed the fact that the dividing the city
into the three wards as pioposed by Mr.
McCallum was impracticable; that
while it was satisfactory as regards the
assessed valuation of each ward it wns
found that there would not be a suffi
cient number of qualified eleetors in the
third ward to fill the board of alderman.
Owing to this fact it was deemed best
to make only two wards, IS ridge street
being the dividing line.
The bylaw then passed, under a suspension of the rules, three readings and
was laid over the required time before
Its final adoption.
The council then adjourned until 11
o'clock this morning.
Speeial Council Meeting.
A special session of the city council
was held last Tuesday afternoon, when
soliciter Cayley laid two by-laws before
the meeting, the first was a by law authorizing the mayor and clerk lo sign an
agreement relative to the sale of the city
bonds, the other was a b-,-law making
provision for city electors to vote without having paid their municipal taxes.
These by-laws were put through thier
three readings by a unanuimous vote.
Dr. llickingbottom, dominion veterinary inspector, who was present at this
stated at some length the system of bis
quaranting at this place, and requested
the council to communicate with Washington's state veterinary inspector, asking that official to cooperate with him
in trying to stop the spreading of this
disease.
A resolution was then passed instructing the clerk to write to the U. S. veterinary inspector for the state of Washington, and request him to do all in his
power to aid Dr. Hickenbottom to
stamp out the disease in the Marcus
section.
The question of locating the arc lights
was then taken up, when after some
discussion it was dicided to b ive one
at the end of Victoria avenue, one at
the intersection of Riverside avenue and
Bridge street, one on Bridge at Second
street, one on Riverside avenue at Main
and one on the Bench at the head of
Main street.
City Clerk Wollaston was instructed
to stake out tbe lo ration of these arc
lights, when the meeting adjourned.
Another special session of the city
council was held last Wednesday, there
being present Acting Mayor Hepvorth,
h. A Manly, W* C. K Manly and J. K.
Johnson were present. The object ol
this session was to reconsider and finally
pass the two by-laws considered at the
session of Tu sday which received the
usual signature and corporate seal.

ihis fellow is nu artist—a king among
Bmashers, These coins tire1 ns nonv the
real thing as It's possible to make Ihem,
and I've not tlte slightest doubt that I
should have accepted ihem myself If
they'd been tendered to me."
"Very possible, sir," wen! on Miller.
"Mr. Miirklniiii. landlord of the White
Horse, is ns smart ns most men, but be
was bitten."
At thnt momeul tlio magistrate entered the court house.
"Well," whispered the chairman,
leaning over the table io the chief **<>n-
Btable, "huve you heard anything':"
"Several complaints tills morning, sir.
The rascal is still nl work, but we hnve
no clew ns yet."
"Confound the fellow," muttered tin-
chairman. "He's making u laughing
stoek of ilu* finest force in lhe provinces."
There was only one item on the
charge sheet tlmt morning, uml the
prisoner pleaded gullfy to having been
lij-iink and disorderly.
"Ten shillings und costs or fourteen
days," suit! the chuirman, ns soon us
lhe constable lnnl Riven evidence.
A gcntlemau in clerical attire here
stepped forward and explained, with
h profound lisp, thnt he wus the curate
of Slo. I llOVe'S, W'esllueutll.
The prisoner, who wns formerly one
of his parishioners, had hitherto borne
n blameless character, nnd. to give him
another chance In life, he rtlie curate)
would pay the Duo.
Having done so, lie bowed politely to
the bench uud led the protege from the
court.
Half an hour later Inspector Miller
hurried to tlie chief's room. In his excitement lie forgot the respect due to
his superior, aud nipped out something
very much like an oath.
"Miller!" ejaculated the chief const able.
"1 lies your pardon, sir," stammered
the Inspector, "but—er—that is—the
curate."
"Well?"
"He'sslipped through out* lingers, sir;
can't be found anywhere."
"What ou earth do you want him
for?" demanded tbe chief,
"Beg pardon, sir, I forgot. He paid
the line lu court tbis morning."
"I know that, man, Is lhat ii crime, or
uro you "
"Well, here's llie money, sir*," blurted
out the Inspector, throwing down n
number of eoius on the table.
Willi grave doubts its to the other's
sanity, the chief picked up oue of thc
coins nud examined It—then another,
and another, until all had been inspected.
"Spurious, every one of 'em!" he
gasped, sinking Into his chair.
For some minutes neither of them
spoke. The very audacity of the thing
hud taken their breaths nwny.
Suddenly Miller Jumped lo his feet.
He lnnl u vague notion that ho had seen*
the curate before.
"Can I have a fortnight's leave, sir,
and permission to lake what I wanl
from the police museum?" he asked.
"Take what you like, Miller, but for
goodness' sake let us have the lust
laugh on our side."
The Inspector promised to do his best,
and shortly afterward be left his chief's
presence,

"The police! Ball I They ain't worth

Silas Mnrkham, landlord of the
"Wliite Horse," anil owner of another
half-dozen licensed houses in Wullluu-n,
folded Ids arms over his broad chest,
and gave utterance to the above contemptuous remark,
"They don't possess the wits they
were born with," he went on. "Why.
poor Drinking Don thore would give
thc best of 'em points nnd n heating."
The Individual referred to was leaning unsteadily against a pillar. He was
a well-known character, was Dan. For
a year or more lie had beeu missing
from his accustomed haunts—rumor
said he lind passed the time In jail—and
itwnsonly the other dny that ho turned
up ami claimed his corner iu the bur of
the "White Horse."
"Aye. nye," elrri'-klerl the old toper ns
be waddled over to llie bar for "another two penn'worth o' Scotch;" "Drink-
lug Dun ain't—(liio)—the biggest fooil
ololvo."
"Of course, not, Dnn, you're only one
of 'cm," returned Markham, as he pocketed tire twopence.
The laugh wns agnlust Dnn, and
there was a dangerous gleam In tlio
eyes of tbo bnlf-wltted wreck, as ho
I lurched over lo his obi position In the
corner.
About ."i o'clock oil the following afternoon Dun staggered Into lhe bar, a
frltle more Intoxicated ilian usual. The
landlord, however, who was the sole
occupant when Dnn entered, served
hiin wilh Hie usual *t'wopenu'oi*IIi."
Tiie customer placed a half-crown
piece on the counter, which the landlord—after giving the change—threw
inward llie till. It fell on the Hour, ami
something in its sound roused Mark-
hatn's suspicions.
Picking up the coin, he examined It
closely, while Dan began to shuffle to-
ward tire door. Too late, however.
Markham sprang over tbe counter,
seized the other by ilir- collar, ami dragged him Into a private room.
"Where did you get that coin?"    lie
hissed.
"Letnmego," pleaded Dim, huskily.
"Where did you get It?" repeated lhe
other.
"A gint give It lo me," stammered
Dnn, "and- -   "
"It's a lie!' 'hissed Markham. "Come,
oul with lhe truth."
"All right," responded Dnn. desper-
ately, "Let go my throat, will yer? I
mude It."
"So   you    le   li,   did    you:    And
where did you get tiie die?"
"Stole il," growled Dan, "It onee belonged to a fellow you knew Iliilton,
Un- coiner."
"Hush, you crazy rrroi." hissed Markham. "Don't you know where you are?"
Slopping softly to the door, tlte hind
lnnl linked ii. thon, producing a bottle
from the cupboard—wits ii tbe sight ol
lhal bottle lhat brought Hie trlumpbnul
gleam into Dan's eyes?--lie poured otl!
a couple of glasses.
"Come, Dan. here's to your health."
said Markham. "It won't do for lis iii
quarrel. 1 wasn't awuro vou knew—
1 ."
"I knowed him twelve years ago," re-
piled Dan, adding, with a keen glance
at liis companion, "an' I knows 'im
uow."
Markham winced, und glanced uneasily toward the door.
"Well." lie demanded nt length,
"what do you want?"
"Work." replied his companion.
"Anil what about the dies?"
"I'l bring 'em whenever you like,'
Half nu hour Inter Drinking Dan
emerged from a side door and shambled oil' down the street.
Tiie "White Horse" wus a money-
making establishment, night and day.
When "closing timo" came round, and
tlie last shilling had rolled into the capacious lit! behind the cotlhter of lhe
bar, business wus resinned in tin-
vaults.
In the wee slim' hours of a November morning this particular branch of
tin* business was in full swing, and
profits were being literally coined.
Three or four ghastly figures flitted
about iu the semi-darkness. Silas Mark-
ham was engaged in earnest confab
wilh his sou—alius "llutlon the coiner." alias "Flush Jim," alius our ohl
friend tlie curate—at the fur end of the
cellar, while Drinking Dan waa busily
engaged, near the heavily boiled door
in tin- manufacture of spurious florins.
Suddenly the low but distinct mew
of a eat reached the ours of the alert
Dnn.
Before the others were oven aware of
Ids Intentions, tlie supposed drunkard
sprung forward, shot back lhe bolt and
faced around on tlio others with a revolver in each hand,
"Trapped, by heaven," roared Mark-
hum—or, rather, Iluttoii, Sr.—OS a posse
of police wilh lhe chief constable of
Wrillbiirn nt their head rushed in.
Tlie struggle was tierce but brief. The
elder Ilutlou wus soon overpowered;
but his son, who had previously served
u long term of Imprisonment, for a siiu-
llar offense, fought like a tiger. With
his capture resistance wns at au end,
nnd the whole gang was secured.
"Tricked by a miserable gin-sodden
drunkard." groaned the older llitttou,
us the handcuffs clicked on his wrist.
"You're -wrong, my friend, If that's
any consolation to you," said tlie Individual referred to, stepping forward,
"Inspector Miller, at your service—one
of those men you valued at 'tuppence
a dozen.' "
| The prisoner did not reply, but the
Inspector owed his life to tire fact that
glances are not deadly weapons.
Shortly after tlie gang had been con-
vleled Inspector Miller wus promoted.
At, a Utile supper, organized in honor
of the event, lie wus asked where uud
how he picked up his clew.
"It was a piece of luck," he laughed.
"Twelve years ago In the Assize Court
at Westheath, wheu Iluttou, tlie younger, was sentenced to ten years' penal
servitude.
"I shall never forgot lho prisoner's
jaunty appearance on that occasion. He
never turned a hair, and wheu the
Judge passed sentence on him lie received it with a low, swooping bow.
that would have done Infinite credit lo
a Parisian.
"He repeated the bow exactly when,
as the curate, lie put iu au appearance
at Wullburn police court lo pay that

"ll was only when seated In the

OUR BUDGET OF FUN.
HUMOROUS   SAYINGS   AND   DOINGS HERE AND THERE.
Men Ai;i,li;nt Money,
In tbe huge struggle in England of
men ngninst money culled the engineers' strike, there Is a certain nentl-
mental change to be noted. Tlie employers have talked loo mtK'h ln their
IluBbud pleasure ut thut which aremed
an assured triumph, with the result
that ninny of the moderately conservative forces have taken umbrage and
have espoused the side of the men.
Millionaires liltc Cadbury are now subscribing bo many thousand dollars a
week for tho mon while the trouble
lasts, and un Influential body of prelates of the Church of England has Issued a circular deploring the masters'
ill-advised language about "smashing
trades unionism once for all." This altera the conditions, so it is doubtful
whether the men will accept thc Hoard
of Trade's stipulations for a conference oven if the masters did so. Sun
day's mass meeting in Trafalgar
square was of service as showing how
tho mass of Londoners feel on this
subject. It was a great popular success and the public sentiment may
give the ultimate victory lo the men.
Children in Factories*
I it most of the large factories in this
country many little children arc employed, tlie majority of them beiug-the
offspring of foreign parents--Russian,
Polish, Italian ami Bohemian. The little ones are strong and free from nerve
troubles, owing io their Inheritance of
robust constitutions from a line of ancestors who have spent simple, out-of-
door lives. Scientists say the children
of these children will have no such
heritage, and that thoy will be especially predisposed to Indigestion and
consumption. It has been found that
the tenement born and bred child is
a weakling Iu many respects, owing
to overcrowding, poor ventilation, lack
of warmth nud sunlight and fresh air
and poor food.

lioisp, Idaho, Nov. 29.—A sudden, lonely death has been the fate of a young
lad of Middleton, named Will Perkins.
Oa Thanksgiving day he went out shooting, but did not return, Early the next
day a party was out looking for traces of
the missing hid. The fears of his parents proved only too well founded, his
dead body being found on the edge of a
slough a mile or two from home. His gun
lay a little distance to the right. It hod
been discharged, the charge striking the
unfortunate lad in the right side, tearing
a griping hole through his body. It is
thought he slipped and threw the gun
from him to prevent it falling in tho wa-'
ter, the trigger being caught by a twig
or stone and the piece, discharged.
