Headquarter, far North Beast Kootenay���Removal oaf Governiueal
Offla-ae.  Here.
We have the best authority for Hating that the Courthouse and gaol will
be removed from Donald to Golden.
The Donald recording office will be
closed, and the Donald Mining Division will be merged in the Golden
Division, tha town ol Golden becoming
th* headquarter* of the Government
office* for North East Kootenay. The
change will mean the establishment at
Golden of the Supreme and County
Courts, with Registrar and Clerk respectively, Sheriff, Gaoler, Registrar
of Births, Deaths and Marriages, and
Collector of Vote*. We congratulate
Golden on again being restored to the
position a* Government staff headquarters that the town originally
occupied, and Golden ia a much more
central point from which to transact
the business of the district than Donald, The change will prove a great
convenience to tbe public, and the
actios of tbe Board of Trade will
���trengthen the hand* of the Government in making the desired change.
Man ha* Di* Foot Crushed.
A shocking accident occurred at the
Golden railway station on Sunday
afternoon. A man named J. Smith
who is employed at tbe C.P.R. qnarry
at Hector, wa* leaving by a freight
traiu, and seeing the train moving he
believed it was going out and rushed
to get on board. Iu doing so he fell in
front of the caboose, the wheels of
which went over one of his feet crushing it to a pulp. The unfortunate man
was conveyed to the Golden Hospital
where Dr. Taylor amputated the injured foot. Smith wa* formerly an
employee of the C.P.R. at Winnipeg
and while there met with a similar
accident hy which lie lost the whole nf
the fingers of on* hand and three fingers of the other.

H Estell has been doing development work on a claim which he has
looated ou the Columbia river, opposite
Hog Ranch. It is a copper ore, and
the lead appears '0 be about 75 feet in
width. If so it it an immense thing,
even with a low grade ore.

that T. Love has secured a contract to
run a tunnel on tbe Cariboo Marsh
Claim which is situated about six
miles west of Moyie Lake and as a

VI.It. Bald Mountain���A nard Trip.
Mr Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, returned to Golden on Sunday.
During his stay at Donald he visitod
the Bald Mountain Company's mine,
which wa* the ouly one that could be
seen in the district on account of the
snow. On that tho.e was a good deal
of snow, and the trip was a pretty
hard one, as, owing to reports of the
trail being filled with fallen timber,
horses were not taken, and the trip to
and from tbe mine had 10 be made on
foot in one day. Mr. Robertson weut
ou to Revelstoke, aa the people there
wished him to see the Big Bend country, but he wat advised by those in ���
terested that to make the trip at this
time of year waa risky, and the country wa* so much covered with snow
that ie could not be properly examined.
This portion ot Mr. Robertson's trip
bad therefore to be abandoned, and he
will now return to the Coast to prepare
hit reports and statistics for presentation to Parliament.

A meeting was held at the Golden
Era office on Tuesday night to consider the formation of a Board of Trade.
H G Parson was elected to the chair
and it waa decided to organise a body
to be called the Golden Board of Trade.
The officers were fixed as a President,
Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer,
and Council of four, with power to
add to their number. H G Parson was
elected President, J G Ullock, Vice-
President; E A Haggen, Secretary
Treasurer; aad W McNeish, C A Warren, M Dainard, and C.H.Parson the
The secretary was instruced to
cotnmuuioate with the Provincial
Government representing the desirabil
ity of removing the Court house, Gaol
and other public buildings from Donald to Golden, now thut Donald was
being wiped out as a divisional and
railway point, and to tbe C.P.R. telegraph department urging that the
despatching and repeating station of
the Pacific division be moved to
It was also decide! to communicate
with the Fire Wardens and ask them
to meet the Council with a view to
organising some arrangements for the
better protection of the town from fire.
The secretary was instructed to
communicate with the member for the
district and ask that Le should represent to the Dominion Government the
desirability of establishing a telegraph
line between Golden and Windermere,
It was arranged that the Council
should meet on Friday night to make
the by-laws and convene a general
meeting to report.
An Able   Statesman.���HI. Excellent
Work at Ottawa.
The Hon. Joseph Martin was a pas
aengcr to the Coast on Sunday, having
been on a trip to the East for the purpose of interviewing the Dominion
Cabinet in regard to matters of interest to British Columbia, Among other
matters attended to was that of protective works at Revelstoke which had
so long been in dispute between the
Turner government and the Dominion.
Mr. Martin fixed up tho thing iu two
minutes, arranging with Hon, Mr.
Tarte that the Dominion should contribute half the expense and the Province the other half. This will be eminently satisfactory to the people of
ttovelstoko. We also learned from Mr.
Martin that the Government o> which
he is n member are contemplating some
important alteration tn the admiuis.
tration of public affairs with a view to
securing more effective work with
greater economy. It would be premature for us to say what these changes
will involve, and the details will
shortly be placed before the public in
an official manner. The Hon. Joseph
Martin at once convinces the interviewer that his Government nnan 10
bring about a better slate of things in
British Columbia and that tbe bood-
ling of the past must be hounded
down, and a system of pure government instituted, which will have for
its object the greatest good for the
greatest number. Canada to-day
possesses no statesman of higher reputation and higher integrity, coupled
with a determination to do his duty to
the Proviiica- and to the people and the
Government and party with which he
ii attociataid in power.
Sporting Excursion.
The party wbo went by the Hyak on
a thooting excursion up the Columbia
River returned on Friday night. They
report a most en joy able time and appreciate the efforts made by Capt. Bacon
to make thetripaspleasaiutas possible.
G. B. McDermot headed the list with
46 birds. The party left Golden on
Oct. 1st and went as far as Wells'*
Landing, which they reached at 2 p.
m., remaining here ovor the following
day. Birch Tree was reached on the
3rd, and the following day the party
went aa far as G, McMillan's, where
tha boat tied up till the next day, the
5th. A move was then made lo Steamboat Landing. Next day, Oct, 6th,
tbo return trip wat made to G. McMillan's. Tho Hyak left here at daylight on the 7th for Welit's Landing,
where some good sport was had, and
at 2 p.m., a start was made for Golden.
The best, sport was got at Wells's
Landing and at G. McMillan's'. The

Small   Lead, of High   Grade Or..���
Itlch In Sliver, Copper aad Lead.
Mr. F. C. Collett has just relumed
from the Windermere district and tell*
the Fort Steele Prospector that that
region has been the scene of many rich
strikes during tbe past luinmer.
The Hot Punch mineral olaim, which
is under bond to Messrs. Collett and
Starbird, is being rapidly developed;.
The Hot Punch is situated on th*
north fork of Toby Creek, Development work consists of an incline tunnel down 70 feet; drifts hav* been run
from the end of the tunnel north and
south a distance of 15 and 20 feet. Th*
ledge it front 1 to 4 feet in width, and
has a dip of 35 degree*. A shaft i*
now down tome 20 feet, but work had
to be discontinued on account of water.
The character of the ore on thi* property ia a sulphide carrying grey copper ; the gangue ia a heavy apar and
barite, containing iron tutphuret*
which carry gold. The clean or* will
assay 600 ozs. in tilver and 78 per
cent lead. The lowest attay in th*
gangue 65 ounces in tilver and 70 per
cent lead. Ou tbe Mint Julip several
open cuts have been made, bnt to far
actual development consists of th*
yearly assessment.
This property is situated about half
a mile east of, and down the gulch
from the Hot Punch, aud is owned by
Messrs. Kimpton, Stark, and Harrison.
Development work consists of an open
cut 20 feet in length by 12 feet deep.
The ore is the same, a sulphide or*
carrying grey copper, a* found on
other claims in this neighborhood.
The paystreak consists of 14 inches of
good clean ore. Some 20 tont hav*
been tacked and shipped to Kaslo. It
is estimated that thia shipment will
average 385 ounce* in tilver, and 70
per cent lead, to the ton.
Tbe Swansea is situated on th*
mountain behind Windeiinere. A large
force ot men are employed in developing the property under tb* management of Mr. Mulholland of Rossland.
A tunnel is in 140 feet, and the manager is sinking a shaft. The ledge i*
from 4 to 6 feet in width. The ore i*
a copper glance running high in copper.
This property is owned by E. T.
Johnson, and has been bonded by an
eastern syndicate, who are developing
the claim. The lead is about 4 feet ia
width and has a paystreak of some 10
or 12 iucho* ot rich ore; it it laid that
the gangue will assay 70 ounce* in
silver. Assays from the paystreak
run as high aa 800 ounces in tilver.
The ore ii a grey copper with torn*
ruby silver.
The Dividend gronp consists of four
claims located by Me**r*. Haupt, Taylor and Mather, and is situated on
Boulder Creek, a tributary of Horoe
Thief Creek. The ledges are fully 60
feet in width, with a pay ttreak of 6
feet of solid galena carrying copper.
The trend of the ledge it N. E. and S.
W., and dips at an angle of 15 degree*.
These claims are an extension on the
touth ot tha Sitting Bull group, now
under bond to Nelton partite tor
It is reported 'hat a large number of

(Bite, ��oH-cn Viva
On behalf of the residents of both
Golden and Donald we have to express
the pleasure it gives us to acknowledge
in the first place the measure of justice
which it is proposed to ineot out to the
people of Donald on the one hand, and
the recognition of the importance ol
Golden as a railway centre and commercial distributing point on the
other. In these respects the visit just
paid to tho district by the President,
Sir William Van Home, the General
Manager, Mr. Whyte, and Messrs.
Marpole and Duschenay, the officers in
charge of the Pacific Division, has
boen probably ihe most important, and
certainly the most satisfactory, of any
previous visit. In regard to Donald,
the people of that town made their
homes there, and in some cases spent
considerable sums in erecting buildings
which would be a credit to any town.
The fact that they were given leasei-
for 99 years, and that the land had
been altered from a Dominion Government townsite to a Company townsite,
on the special representation that it
was to be used as a divisional and
workshop point, formed ample ground
for the request of tho residents ol
Donald, that they should receive soma-
reasonable measure of compensation
for losses sustained through no fault
of their own. Tiie liberal spirit iu
which they were met by Sir William
Van Home and Mi, Whyte should be
satisfactory to them, provided the
promises are carried out; and we have
no doubt from the spirit in which they
were made that they will be to the
letter. This treatment of the Donald
people will inspire confidence in the
integrity of the management ot the
Company in its dealings with tha-
public, and this is as it should be
The promised accommodation at
Golden has long been required. The
C. P. R. station here is discreditable
to a business and railway cento like
Golden, and while we are assured that
the officers of the Company have long
recognised the fact, it is satisfactory
to know that steps are to he taken to
provide Golden with a commodious
station, suited to the requirements of
the town and dietrict, The increase
of the yard accommodation i* also au
indication a* to the future importance
of Golden from a railway point oi
view. Those ol the C.P.R. authorities
who are in a potition to know say that
the statements made by Mr. Whyte
last year, at to the recognition ol
Golden at a great railway point, will
yet be realised, and that the improve
ment* now to be effected are but the
beginning of the steady up-building of
Golden as a railway centre. There is
every indication that next season will
see the beginning of active mining
enterprises in the country to which
Golden it the key, and the great copper-gold belt of the eastern slope of
the Selkirks bid* fair to become the
finest mining region of British Columbia. The great requirement is transportation, and now that attention has
been successfully drawn to the problem the meant of giving effect to it
are rapidly taking definite shape, and
there it every probability that another
spring will see the beginning of the
great interior railway of the Province
from the Great Northern lino in the
United States to the Yukon In the
north, the main junction and centre of
which will be at Golden,
Indigestion and Stomach Troubles Removed
by South American Nervine���Four Bottles Brought back Health and Vigor.
Mr Jas Sherwaod, of Windsor, Ont, writes:
" For twelve months I was a great sufferer
from indigestion and stomach trouble. After

whatever, I was attracted to South American
Nervine through great cures 1 read of its
making, and I decided to try it. After a fow
doses 1 felt great relief anal benefit. I have
taken lour bottles, and although I am 70
years old I give tins thankful testimony tor

We have to congratulate Goldeu on
having at last organised a Board of
Trade; Such an organization has long
been required, and the fact that no
successful steps have hitherto been
taken to effect such an organization
hae been a serious loss to the town.
An authoritative body of live men in

A direct road is urgently wanted
between East and West Kootenay
There is direct; communication between
the two dial riots by the Toby Creek
trail, and it was hoped lhat a wnyoi
road could have.been built over this
route. The result of the investigation
of Mr. Griffith, tho Government Agent.
who is nn experienced engineer, hns
shown that the road cannot be carried by that routo owing to the altitude and steepness of the summit.
This objection would not hold good in
regard to the Bugaboo, and a first
class wagon roud can be got between
Eust and West Kootenay by this
route, a low summit, with good grades
to it from either side, dividing the
Bugabood valley from the Howser
Creek valley on the western slopo,
This road would also be much shorter
than the route by Toby Creek, that is
taking the distance between the Colour
hia River to ths point'of navigation
at the head of Howser Lake on the

Arrival of-C.P.R. Magnates
Great Improvements
At Golden.
Hew C.P.R. Station Buildlngs.-
Large Increase of Yard
Closing   of    Donald
Compensation to Residents of
Donald.���A   Liberal
On Ftiday afternoon Messrs. Mar-
pole and Dusohenay arrived in Golden
with a view to looking at the situation,
prior to their taking over and adding
to the Pacific Division the section of
railway between Donald and Laggan.
It has beeu decided to* make extensive
additions and alterations at the CPU.
depot at Golden. These Will include
the buildiug of a new. aiiai handsome
station, the re-arrangemeiit and extension of -the side tracks to enable trains
to be made -up lor runni.ig through
the canyon, and the laying of a Y
towards the Kicking Horse at a point
beyond the Government offices. The
special traiu conveying Sir William
Van Home and Mr. Whyte, general
manager of the;. Western and Pacific
Diviiioua, arrived at Golden on Saturday morning, and the party waa joined
at Donald by Messrs. Marpole and
a deputation- was. in waiting to interview the party, . -Mr. J. C. Pitts had
wired on the previous day to ascsrtain
whether Sir William Van Home would
be willing to receive a deputation, and.
a favorable reply having been received,
Mestn, Pittt, Forrest, and Ruttan
were in wailing on tho arrival of the
traiu.io interview tha party on behalf
of the residents of Donald. The matter
under consideration was of course that
of compensation to the present residents of Donald oq account of the C.P,
II. shops and divisional .point being
iwnoveal fro u there. The deputation
poiuted. out tho. loss that would he
susuiueal by- those who had built and
iiivi-stsd in 'the-town of Donald ju
aucount of it being the divisional and
workshop point. The Company had
g-it the Im-ii 1 from the Dominion Government on the representation that it
was require I for a workshop aud divisional point and had granted leases of
uiuety-niue years, thus leading the
people to believe in it* permanence.
Sir William Van Home pointed out
that the removal of the workshops and
divisional point from Donald had been
in contemplation by the Company for
the past ten years, aud while the
change would cost the Company $200,*
000 they expected to reap considerable
benefit from It.
Mr Forrest pointed, out that such a
statement was clear proof, of the injustice to the people of the town in the
event of their being given no compensation, at ia that caae it was the duty
of the Company to have warned them,
and to have refused to give them extended leases as had been doue. He
instanced how*, I when Sir William
Doiigla's altered the site of tho town of
Ne*/ Westminster, compensation, was
given to those who bad built in the,
old town.
Sir W.Van Home said the matter had
been uuder consideration' and it was
proposed to give the present holders of
lots in Donald a similar area at Revelstoke, and to move their goods free.
Revelstoke was going ahead and Donald was going down so that they
would be the gainers by such an
arrangement. The matter of monetary
ooi-jpeii-s-|(iou for direct loth cajised by
the policy of tho company would also
receive favorable consideration,
Mr. Whyte expressed the hope that
thqu.wha.weK affected by the change
would have no cause to regret it, aud
in reply to a question as to when the
change would take place Mr. Whyte
said he could not tell definitely till he
went to Hevelstoke, but probably
everything would be shut down at
Donald at tbe end of this month or the
middle of tbe next. He assured them
that the Company would do all in
their power to make the change at
advaategeou! as possible to those whs
were affected,
Dajring thedoiirse of thn interview
it *ra�� pointed one that a* Instance* bf
the inone ary losses involved,' Mr.
Forrest estimated his loss at 18000;
Messrs. Manuel und Buttan at 84000,
and Messrs, Kimpton and Pitts at
., .Beat* the Klondike.

Minneapolis, October 6.���A battle
was fought yesterday morning between
United States roguiar troops under the
command of General Bacon and the
Bear Islands Indians. During the
fight it is state 1 that four United
States soldiers were killed and nine
more or less injured. The loss of the
Indians i auuot at present he ascertained. General Bacon had marched to
Bear Island to enforce the authority of
the United States marshal iu that district. The marshal had caused the
arrest of several Indians on account of
various offences, but a party of their
friends oa the reserve had rescued
them, and refused to give them up to
th*i authorities. An unconfirmel
rumor has reached here that 100 soldiers of the regular troops under the
command of Geueral Bacon have been
massacred  by Indians at Leech Lake.

A Pretty
.   School
New creations  from
Discarded Materials.
In every young girl there is a natural
and inherent desire to look pretty and
attractive, and nothing gives greater
delight to the ordinary school miss
than an occasional new dress.
Before the advent of Diamond Dyes
the large majority of our school girls
had to content themselves with two
dresses a year���one each for summer
and winter. Now, with the magical
virtues of Diamond Dyes, mothers in
even very moderate circumstances are
enabled to send their girls to school as
neatly and stylishly dressed as the
daughters of well-to-do families.
A little feminine tact nnd skill thnt
all women po.-.sess, with the aid of a
ten cent package of Diamond Dyes,
will do wonders for our school
Every mother has put aside one or
more dresses too old and faded for herself or daughters. It is a mistake to
imagine that these dresses are worthless. With a littlo simple work in
coloring and re-muking you can huve
really artistic effects and results.
Taki one of the old dresses and try
your skill. First remove all grease
spots and stains, then prepare your
bath of Diamond Dye ���the color mosl
becoming to the miss who is to wear
it���and dye according to the simple directions on the envelope, and you have
a creation in new material, which,
when made up, your daughter can
wear with pride and satisfaction.
A new mid pretty dress ut a cost of
from lon to twenty cents is always
your reward when you make use of the
Diamond Dyes.

peculiar to their sex, and the constant drain
upon their vitality makes them chronic invalids. Many women hesitate to go to
their family physician, because they dread
the local e-iar.iin.-itions so generally insisted
upon by practitioner..
Such women should writ* Dr. R. V.

Anaiemln,Followed by Neural (lo Pains
ItaektHl her System���Ber Friends
Feared that She Could not Rooover,
From the Enterprise, Bridgewater, N.S.
Mr. and Mrs. James A. Diehl, who
live about one and a half miles from
Bridgewater,. are highly esteemed by a
large circle of friends. Mrs. Diehl has
passed through a trying illness, the
particulars of which she recently gave
a reporter of tbe Enterprisers follows:
" In the spring ot 1896 my health gave
way. In addition to my ordinary
household duties I had the constant
care day and night of a sick child. In
the hope of saving my little one, it did
not occur to me that overwork, loss of
sleep and anxiety were exhausting my
strength. Filially my child passed
away, and then I realized my physical
condition, Shortly after I was attacked with neuralgic pains in the shoulder
which shifted to my right side after
three weeks and settled there. The
pain in my side grew worse and after
a few days I became unable to leave
my bed. In addition to my bodily
trouble I became melancholy and was
very much reduced in flesh. My
friends regarded my condition as dangerous. I remained in bed several'
weeks; to me it seemed ages. It is
impossible to describe the agonies I
suffered during that time. A skillful
physician was in constant attendance
upon me, He said mine waa the
worst case of anaemia and general
neuralgia he had ever seeu. After
some weeks he succeeded in getting me
out of bed and after a few more weeks
I waa able to do some light household
work. But I was only a shadow of
my former self; my appetite was very
poor and that maddening pain still
clung to my side and also spread to
the region of the heart and lungs,
darting through and about them like
lances cutting the flesh. Every few
days I had to apply crotou oil and fly
blisters to my chest, and had a bad
rough. My friends gave up thinking
had consumption. I, too, really
thought my end was near, fearing
mostly that the (sins about my heart
might take me off any day. During
all my illness I had never thought of
any medicine other than what my
doctor prescribed. It happened, how*
ever, that in glancing over the Enter,
prise one day my eye fell upon a state-
ment of a cure made by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Tbe case resembled mine
in some respects. I read and reread
the article. It haunted me for several
days notwithstanding' I tried to dismiss it from my mind. At last I asked
the doctor whether lie thought these
pills would help me. He looked at me
a moment and then remarked "well
perhaps you had better try them.' I
believe they do work wonders in some
cases and il they do not cure you they
will certainly do no harm.'- That re-
mark opened to me the door of life, for
had he said "no" I should not have
used the pills. When I had used two
boxes I began to feel better, my appetite improved and there were less of
those pains about the heart and chest.
The cough too was less severe. I kept
on till six boxes more were taken and
to make a long story short, I was myself again, appetite good, spirits buoyant, pains gone and I could do my own
work with comfort. 1 have been well
ever since and have no doubt that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills saved my life,
and restored me to my family. I am
ever ready to speak their praises and
in my beart am ever invoking God's
blessing upon their discoverer.
Rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia,
partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia,
nervous headache, nervous prostration
and diseases depending upon humors in
the blood, such as scrofula, ehronlo
erysipelas, etc., all disappear before a
fair treatment with Dr. Williams'Pink
Pills. They give a healthy glow to
pale and sallow complexions and build
and renew the entire system. Sold by
all dealers or sent post paid at 60c a
box or six boxes for $2.50 by addressing the Dr. Williams'Medicine Co,,

to take some substitute. 556
