The Christmas Tree for the children

Eve and was a brilliant success, The
ladies who had the management of the

children are to be complimented on the
success oi their efforts. The entertainment commenced at 7:80, the audience
being large and appreciative. The
various numbers on the programme
which consisted of songs, recitations,
dialogues, etc., were performed by the
children in a most creditable manner.
The Tree, the principal part of tbe
entertainment, was moit artistically
decorated and was literally loaded with

In wishing the readers of The Eua
a Happy New Year we feel that it is
no mere form of words, but that the
year '97, will be for all in our district
a prosperous and happy one.
We base our views on the fact that
at last the mineral resources of East
Kootenay are receiving the attention
of capitalists and we state, without
(ear of contradiction, that our mineral
properties will soon stand with the
first in the world in tbe favor of those
who are looking for this olass of
development. Such being the case no
prophetic spirit is needed to predict
prosperity for the whole district of
East Kootenay and for Oolden its
Our merchants who have had for
the past few years held their own in
tho face of difficulties will now reap
tbe advantage of their faith in Golden.
Our Bonifaces will prosper while
ministering to tbe wants of tbe trawl-
ling public.
Those who have invested In our
Townsite will find themselves recouped
alter years of waiting. Our mill will
find its capacity taxed to the utmost
to keep up with the supply of lumber
needed for development.
Our contractors will need constantly
Increasing facilities to cope with the
expansion of their operations, and one
and all will feel the stimulus imparted
by the increased flow ef capital to our
But, to one and all The En a offers
this word of warning, let us be careful
not to lose our heads in the tide of
prosperity, but to take a lesson from

from tbe reaction that follows undue

builds and operates the road. The Intercolonial Railway may not have been
a success financially under the administration of the Conservative Government, but that is no indication that
it cannot be profitably operated by the
governraen t w h ic h is not absolutely un -
der the thumb of the C. P. R as the
late government undoubtedly was. But
���ven under tho conditions which have
existed since its construction we are
inclined to tho belief that the Intercolonial has been a pronounced success in
the broadest sense of the term. We
venture the assertion that few of its
patrons would be content to see' it operated bv any other than the Government, despite its shortcomings in the
past. As the Government of Canada
has seen fit to assume the construction
and ownership of a railway connecting
Quebec with the maritime provinces,
we insist that it is equally the duty of
the Government to build and operate
the proposed national highway through
the Rocky Mountains connecting the
fertile plains of the Northwest Territories with the mining districts of
Kootenay. By so doiug two of the
principul links in the chain destined to
rivit all portions of the Dominion in
one homogeneous whole would be
snccersfuly cast. There is another
aspect of this question which seems to
us to compel the Government to this
policy. Without the Crow's Nest
Pass Railway assures to tbe people of
Kootenay a cheap supply of fuel, all
the expense of ita constrnbtion will
have been in vain. Tbe great coal
fields of East Kootenay have been reserved to a syndicate of local land
sharks, headed by tbe Hon. Col. Baker,
Provincial Minister of Mines. This
syndicate can only acquire title to these
cold fields hy building the Crowjs Nest
Pass Raslway. Were tbe Dominion
Government to build the railway it
would forever prevent tbis syndicate
from acquiring title to these coal fields,
and the accomplishment of this object
alone would be ultimately worth to
Canada the entire cost of the railway.
With the Dunsmuir* controlling Br t
ish Columbia's coal fields on tbe west
and Col. Baker's syndicate controlling
the Crow's Nest Puss Railway on the
east, the miners of Kootenay would be
between the upper and netbor millstones.���Rossland Minor.

From the Leamington Post.
The attention of tbe Post has lately
been frequently called to a remarkable
cure in the case of a young girl living
within a few miles ol this town, whose
life was despaired of, bnt was completely cured fn a short space of time
by the most wonderful of all remedies
Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills. Since reading
in almost every issue of tbe Post of
the cures effected by the use of this
medicine, we felt it to be a duty we
owed to investigate this case which has
so urgently been brought to our notice,
and we are sure the interview will be
read with interest by the thousands of
young girls all over Canada, as well as
by the parents of such interesting
pstients. The young lady in question
is not anxious for notoriety, but is
willing to make he case known In order
that others who rre similarly afflicted
may have an  opportunity  of being
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
famous for its cures of bad colds. It
opens the secretions, relieves the lungs
and aids nature in restoring the system
to a healthy condition. If freely used
at soon as tbe cold has been contracted
���nd before it has become settled in the
system, it greatly lessons the severity
of the attack and has oftt.ii cured in n
single day what would have lieen a
severe cold. For Sale by Druggists

Oovernment Ownership.
The Laurier Government has purchased the Bale de Chaulers Railway
and made it a part tlie Intercolonial

straws which indicate which wuy the
wind is blowing and we trust it is. I
Should it be sn indication that tbej
Laurier Government is in favour of the ?',- -��'*~-
���tate owning aud controlling the pub-
lie highways, it must have an important bearing on. the policy to be pursued
by tbe government in relatien to the
proposed Crow's Nest Pass Railway.
The Miner has long felt that it is imperative, if the Crow's Nest Pass Railway is t��be of real benefit to the people of Canada, tbat it should be under
government control, and control by

Iii the late war I waa a soldier in
the First Maryland Volunteers, Company G. During my term of service I
contracted chronic diarrhoea. Since
then I have used a great amount of
medicine, but when I found any lhat
would give mo relief it would injure
my siomach, until Chamberlain's Culic
Cholera anil diurrhooa Remedy was
brought to my notice, I used it und
will suy it is the onlv remedy that
gave me permanent relief and no bud
results to follow. I tske pleasure in
recommending this preparatirn to all
equally benefitted. The symptoms in
her disease differed in no way from
those affecting, thousands of young
girls about her age. She was suffering
from extreme weakness, caused by an
impoverished condition of the blood,
and her chances of life seemed to grow
less every day. The best and brightest fade away as well as others, but
when we see a young girl of sixteen
years, who should be In the best of
health, witb cheeks aglow with tbe
rosy flush of youth, and eyes bright
and flashing, just the opposite, witb
sallow cheeks, bloodless lips, listless in
every motion, despondent, despairing
of life witb no expectation or hope of
regaining health, and with only one
wish left, that of complete rest physical and mental, we think it one of
the saddest of Bights.
In ths quiet little hamlet of Strang-
field, iu Esses County, just such a case
was presented to the sorrowing eyes of
loving friends a few months ago in the
person of Miss Ella Beacon, who frequently said she did not'care bow soon
she died, as life had no charms for her.
To our reporter she declared that life
had been a burden, but after- suffering
in tbis way for months, and after trying nil sorts of remedies prescribed by
physicians or furnished by friends
from some cherished recipe handed
down from their grandmother, but
without being benefitted iu tbe least,
she was at last persuaded by a neighbor to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
fair trial; but she bad tried' io many
remedies without getting relief that
she still refused for some weeks, However, repeated urgings by her parents
and friends she begun the use of the
pills. Before one box was taken she
experienced some relief, and after the
use of a few more boxes she was restored to perfect health, and there are
few young girls now who enjoy life
more. She says she owes her life and
happiness to Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills,
and is willing lhat ail the world shall
know it. Her case attracted much attention and her perfect recovery has
created muoh comment.

The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to tbe merits of a new
improved apparatus, for testing and smelting various kinds of ores andniiner*
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc. ,

otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons
of ore a day.
On low-grade ores picked at tbe dump, this little furnace will puy for Itself every week, besides wages and expenees. Let someone else do the risk in
mining, and stick to a certainity.

W. E. Gladstone's 87th birthday on
Tuesday bids fair to find him in sus-
.' tained good health and his usual indomitable spirits. He still spends
most of his time cheerfully fussing
. about ia his library, but it is doubtful
if heaver will do much more sustained
work. He writes a great number of
letters, and one of these to Quaritch,
tbe famous bookseller, just published,
contains a charming and vary characteristic bibliographio autobiography.
He laments that bookbinding, despite
. improved machinery and the cheapening of materials, Is far dearer and muoh
worse than whan be w��s ejouqg map.

New Orleans, Deo.  27.-The Daily
Item's Birmingham special says:  One
of the most disastrous railway wrebks
that has ever taken place in this state
occurred at 8:30 this morning on the
Birmingham Mineral railwuy, a loop
road that extends all over this section,
taking in the mines and furnaces. The
wreck occurred at what is known as
theCahaba bridge,   flfty miles from
Birmingham,   between  Guerney and
Blockton.   The bridge is about 1,000
feet long and 90 to 100 feet high.   The
train   jumped  the track from some
cause unknown, and plunged off the
trestle to the rocks below.   As to the
number of passengers on board, reports
conflict, the best obtainable information placing the number at thirty to
thirty-live.      Seven were taken out
alive, bnt in a dying condition.     The
wreck taught fire and many victims
were burned to death.     The scene of
wreck presented a most heart-rending
aud sickening spectacle.      The cars
were smashed to splinters on the rocks
fully one hundred feet below 'he track
from which tbe train had been hurled.
The groans of the injured aud lamentations   of those   who   were crowded
around were pitiable in the extreme.
Physicians from Birmingham and adjacent villages were sent to the wreck
and rendered efficient service in endeavoring to alleviate the suffering of
those who escaped with their lives,
