Bird'. Eye View of the DUtrlct.
Less attention has been given hy
pros|>ectors io the Donald Mining Di
vision than to any other portion ol
North East Kootenay. Yet tho proa
pects of minora! deposits of vuliii lieing
found there appear to lie as good as in
any other portion of the Columbia
Valley. Promising placer deposits lie
unworked on Quartz creek and there
have been locations of excellent gold-
copper ore maale on Porcupine creek,
but as yet no development work lias
been done, so that practically nothing
has been proved regaining these prospects, On Bald Mountain there is one
of the biggest deposits of gold-bearing
quart*, we have seen in East Kootenay
and we shall refer to it fully later on.
On Kinbasket Lake a galena deposit
has been in process cf development..
Placer gold and platinum have been
found iu the Bluewuter, Cummins
creek, at the Wnlt-a bit, and at Canoe
river. Here, then, is a large area of
country showing promising indications
at many points, but which is ns yet
The far north can be reached by a trail
known as the Moberly trail running in
a north-westerly direction from Donah!, and though the trail is in bad
shape in many places at the present
time the route is an excellent one,
being over an easy grade, and with
abundance of fodder for pack animals
on the way. It was in this district
that the editor of the Golden Eka
spent the greater pnrt of last week, and
though the ground covered nocessiiateal
travelling over some ot tho toughest
country we hive ever struck, there
was much to compensate for the hard
er side of the trip. The first property
which we visiteal was* that located last
year by Messrs. Moo-lio ami Conner
between the Clearwater nnd Blnewater
rivers. From D-mald to Fish Lake is
a distance of la miles, by the Moberly
trail, which was found in good shape
thus far, e.tc.-pt foi* laejiig hhickeal hy
windfalls and a tow, boggy Waces. The
bridge over the Wait^lNJjPdaiinige.l
two years ago, by highuvater, has
been put in good shape, anuvtJicuce the
trail rune along the river mt to the
Columbia, and follows this tftt terrace
which strikes across to the Bvewater,
four miles further on. This Vver impresses the traveller with the appropriateness of the name as he descemls
to it from the tcrraco on which be has
been travelling, especially as he con
trusts it with the Blackwater, which
joins it a little below lhe bridge. The
Hluewater is crossed by a good trail
bridge, and then the trail follows the
Blackwater for the next six miles to
Fish Lake. Four miles from the Blue-
water bridge is the favorite luncheon
(jround of travellers, whore the trail
along which stream is abunda ceof
feed for horses. At Fish Lake a trail
turning to the right takes the traveller
off on the route to the Clearwater mine
This side trail is a terror at the point
where it goes down to the lake, for the
grade here is steep enough to make an
exciting toboggan slide. It is certainly
too steeK for horses. The Clearwater
is again crossed at the foot of the terrace, where the pretty lake known as
Fish Lake breaks into view. This hns
been a celebrate'! lishing ground of
Donald people for years past and on
the trip the writer fell in with two
well-known Donald residents, C.
Baines and W. Caldwell, ivho were
out on the joint business of a fishing
excursion and a trip to the Clearwater
mine. At the lake is a capital camping placo and plenty of feed for horses.
but what with mosquita.es ami black
Hies it is not always the best of places
in which to camp for the night. A
fair trail leads from the lake to
a distance of about 4 miles. Here the
toughest part of the trip begins. A
new trail has been made from the
Clearwater to the mine, and a great
deal of work has been put upon it, the
Government subsidising it to the extent of $|00. A better route could
certainly have been got, for the first
part of the trail consists iu a sud, on
ascent from the crook, which makes
hard climbing for both man and horse,
and the route will have to be altered if
any considerable amount of packing
has to be done to and from the mine.
Two miles over a rough, rocky river

gentleman who bonded the property
and is working it at the present time.
is on tho summit of the divide between
the Blue-vater and Clearwater rivers,
7.400 feet above sea lea el. The property includes three claims, Little
Brother owned hy J. W. Conner,Mow
gli hy U. P. Moodie, and Akcla lay Dr.
Taj lor, A trail of some thirteen 'signage has been made up the steep mountain e|de to where the mineral boaring
veins oiucrop on  tho   summit.     The
histery of the discovery dates back
some, four years ago when some In-
d.ans told Mr. .1. W. Conner of the
deposit. He went out to see it but
owing to the roughness of the country
he did not stake the ground at tho
time. Samples brought in, however,
gave assays of between $300 and $400.
and last year Messrs. Conner and
Moodie went out and located the
ground. H. C. Hammond, of Toronto,
was so much impressed wilh the
samples of ore shown him, that he
went out and saw the property. He
returned with a magnificent lot of ore,
which, ou assay by W. Pellew Harvey, want over $100 in gold, silver,
and copper.   He then
on the properly and sent Professor
Hardinan of Montreal to inspect tho
ground. The Professor, although impressed with tlio richn as of the ore,
reckoned that from tho inaccessibility
of the location, it would be a doubtful
proposition, and on his advice the
bond whs abandoned hy Mr. Hammond
Last year .Mr. Knowlton took a working bond on the property, and recently
started work on it. He had an assay
made on the ore in Montreal, when ihe
result showed a value of something
like $850 to ta.e toil. On his return
from the cast this season Mr, Knowlton decided to start work on the property and goc in as soon us the ground
was clear of snew.
It occurs at discovery in stringers
traversing a porphyry dyke. Thi*
dykelie about 30 feet wide rising be
tween slste and serpentine an.l there
are nbout a dozen of these stringers
running tho width of the dyko Tiiest-
stringers run from two to twenty-four
inches in thickness, and are from two
to tun feet npart,. They all carry ore
which is iu the form of giite.ua ou the
surface aiual grey copper lower down,
both pres lacing very high graile. Tha-
couniry rock on both sides of the porphyry dyke is so badly broken up thai
when a tunnel wus stand with a view
to cutting through the group of stringers itfivus impossible to keep the roof
up fair gelling the timbers in, and the
tunnel had to be abandoned at thai
poujt| There is no appearance here ol
ii dftjliud lead immediately connecting
with ' these sti itinera, though in the
valley beneath, sonio 1000 to 1500 fcei
It     . r      .j
traceable through the glacial basin,
with a strike of N 70 VV, and the line
of which cuts riajht into the porphyry
dyke at right angles to the lead. This
dyke runs east and west with a dip ol
55' to the south. There is therefore
every probability that the lead will be
siruck as the work deepens. This
theory is strengthened by lhe fact thai
tho ore in the stringers all lies on the
font wall, and cxtouds but a shut i
distance in from the foot wall of the
porphyry dyke. The richness of the
ore found in the stringers gives
ill the main lead when that is found.
Already half a ton of this rich ore Ims
betn laken out, and it is Mr. Knowl
ton's intention to send some of I' to
McGill College, at iMoutreal, for a
thorough sampling. Several open cuts
have been made into these stringers,
one of these cuts being 17 feet long and
H feet deep, and another 15 ieet long
and 10 feet deep. The quartz is a
whilo crystalination peculiar io the
whole of the Blnewater Basin of the
Donald Mining Division. Slate and
porphyry are sometimes mixed with
(lie quartz, and the lead in the valley
shows strong exudations of talc. Mr.
Knowlton has opened up the load in
the valley to some extent und duds
showing a fine quality of galena on the
surface, but of course no work has
been done ou it to prove iho extent or
Maine of ihe mineralisation.' A tunnel
has now been opcui'il on tiie cuuip'siati-
of the divide on which lhe chums tare
located, uud it is intended to drive thin
under the oaitcropof that stringers
This work will prove lite extent of the
mineralisation to a certain depth, and
will serve to shoav whether it is of a
permanent character. Thu work should
also prove lhe existence of Iho lead m
that point aud whet her its niincralisa
tion corresponds with the splendid
snowing in the stringers. A great
aiiiticulty in tunneling ai this point is
the trouble iu getting in timler, a8.it
is some disunite away, anal has to be
hauled some 1400 feet up a steep Inolllli'.
On the other hand the steepness of thu
mountain is a greutassistmice in proving the ground, as it gia-es sai match
depth for every fool of tunnel dm on.

The management of tho Great Norl h*
eru Railway evidently has a high
opinion of the future of the Kootenays.
That coinpauy does not seem content
with the railways it now has iii this
district, vis, the Corhln system and
the Knslo & ,Slocnn road, but has it
seems, decided to forthwith construct
a lino of railway from Bonner's Ferry
Ilitho, down the Kootenay river to the
International boundary, there to connect with tli9 proposed Nelson & Bed*
lington railway.     From another, end
a reliable source, it is loarned that tho
Great Northern controls certain valuable railway charters in East Koote-
mv, and that in tbe near future a
branch commencing at Jennings,
Montana, on the maiu line of the system, will bo extended northward as far
hs Golden. Tho completion ol these
projects together with tho Kettle river
valley extension, will give the Greet
Northern access to every raining camp
of importance in southern British
Columbia. - Rossland Miner.
From information which wc have
received, the lino from Jennings will
follow the hank of the Kootenay river

Mr. Boaven has been unable to form
a government. That was the inevitable foreoaste when hetook the responsibility. The result has been that the
Lieut.-Governor has sent for Mr. Sjiii-
lin. That was the gentleman representative of the Opposition who sho Id
have been sent for in the first place.
The Opposition partv was, however,
in this difficulty -that utter a convention of the members thereof it wus de
cidel that the election of lender should
remain over till this week, Mr. .Soinlin
himself approving this course. If lua
therefore assumes the Premiership
in any other than a tentative form,
pending that mooting, he avill fall into
disfavor wi*li his puny, an.l indeed he
has already been accused of a broach
of trust in the matter, Mr. Sunliu
offered the position of Attorney-General to Mr. Joseph Martin, lint that gen-1
| tletnan refused to accept tor t hu reason
that he believed to accent oflicj pend-'
ing the meeting already arrungeil
would he a breach of trust with the
party. We have always found Mr.
Semlin a tiioro.igh geiiiliiuiaiu, and we
ilo not believe lie will lend himself to
anything which will cause trouble in
the ranks of the partv itself. Wc
therefore hopo to see Mr. Soinlin take
such steps as shall eusuro a good
strong government being formed from
the Opposition ranks as well as the
preservation of unanimity in the ranks
of the party itsalf.
The   rosult   of   the hearing of   the
Windorniere cases at the County Court, j
before Judge Forin, fully justifies the
remarks we made on  the scandalous'
administration   of   justice, by   which |
these cases were sent for trial.      Here'
were two men arrested, brought before I
a magistrate   who   evidently   knows!
very little about the proper discharge !
of   duties   pertaining  to Ilia office, re-1
fused a fair   hearing in that an appli-1
cition  for  adjournment  to   produce'
eridetice was not granted, committed
for trial   on   evidence which did anything but justify such a comae.     Tho
result   has   boon lhat these men have
suffered a cruel wrong by being locked
up In prison all  this time, and but for
the efforts of   their   counsel in taking
advantage of the speedy trial clauses
f the County Courts Act, they might
have been lying  in  prison yot. or for
the next three or four months for thai
matter.   This is the sort of thing thai
people talk glibly of as British justice.
In   our   opinion the    Magistra'e  at
Windermere, who is responsible for the
outrage of these men being committed
for trial and held  in prison so long is
more deserving   of   punishment than
they, for the wrong he has dono them.
II reliance is to be placed on the reports
published in another ccluir.n referring
to a line if railway along the Columbia
Valley to Golden, connecting the Great
Northern system with the C.P.R.,
there is a great future before this district, ns such a railway will brine
means of transportation within au
immense area of mineral country
which can never be dealt with by any
other moans than a railway, which
will bo available for transportation all
the year round.
The position between Russia and
Britain is a very threatening one. The
break'ug limit of British patience
seems to have basin reached, and much
as Lord Salisbury hns been esteemed
as a diplomat the people of Great
Britain seem io have lost confidence in
him and to be determined to have their
rights asserted, oven if it must lie by
force of arms. There appears to be
verv little doubt but that Russia bus
had the best of it thus far in the China
deal. The territory affectel is one in
which the United States is as in ch
interested as the British nation from a
commercial point of view, and if matters come to the worst we should like
to see Britain and the United States
fighting this battle shoulder to shoulder in their mutual intesost. Such u
war would, however, under the best
conditions, be a terrible calamity, and
one which it would be better to avoid
if possible.
There is something sadly wrong
with the principles of trail construction in this district. These trails are
made or opened in the beginning of the
season and thin allowed to remain,
with the result that they soon become
blocked, and are often -thus next to
useless, or at all events a great inconvenience to travellers. The Bald
Mountain trail is badly blocked with
timber at tho lower end. The trail
from Donald north by the Columbia is
in a very bad state from fallen timbers.
The same may be said of the Brown's
Creek and other trails iu the district.
What is wanted is a system of letting
the maintenance of the various trails
by annual contracts, the contractors
being bold responsible under pr-iper
bonds for keeping the trails clear it
fallen timber, repairing of slides and
bridges. Wc have seen this policy in
force and know hovv satisfactorily ii
works, and we are sure that if a sinii
lar policy were adopted in this district
it would prove far ahead of the present hop, step uud jump stylo of doing
It is a groat satisfaction to commer
cial and industrial interests to learn
that the war between the United States
and Spain is at an end. The event has
been a disastrous ono to both nations,
meaning to the United States tho piling up of a huge debt of 8130,000.000,
and to S,iaiii it means the loss of hei
most important colonies and ber re-
Illation to the lowest grade among
E iropoan poavers, Oil iho other hand
tho war has shown lhat the United
States is a coming power that has to
he reckoned with, in the future; it has
drawn closely the bonds between tho
United States and Britain, amounting
virtually to an alliance; it has shown
that the United .States navy as far as
it goes is a big thing, having annihilated two fleets with tho loss of only
one man ou each occasion, and wil lion'* the loss of a ship.
The evens of the last few weeks
appear to indicate that East Kootenay
is at length about to bo embarked as
one of tho first mining distiictsof
British Columbia. If the work now
being dono by tho Minos Development
Company proves successful it is beliov
ed that both tho Swansea and the
Dailos mines in the Win lennerc district will he shippers of ore within a
short time. The strikes recently mado
on C.iuyon Creek and Fifteen Mile
Creek nre amongst the lies', copper
strikes that have been made in the
district, and though they are hut in
the prospecting stages there is every
evidence of their proving permanent
and payable mines. The properties
referred to are all copper ores, and are
conveniently situated * to transportation.

Many of tbe North American Indians
were 1fitagul��fcenCl tfpecinicns of physical
manhood. Thi** \v:is du*?.1'largely, to their
active out-dour life. Nevertheless, they
had the wisdom ui know tliat an active lift
in the open air alone, would not keep a
man healthy. Tin y had their medicine-
men, Who leathered hirbs 'from field and
forest nnd brewed decoctions to assist tht-
natural processus of the various vital
organs.        '
Modem civilised men do not a* a usual
thing recognize the same m cosily until it
!s too late. They ignore medicine until
*hev are within the grasp of some serious
ir fatal disra'-K*. The time for a man to be-
���rin taking medicine is w'aon he begins to
feci out nf sorts, if a man is thoroughly
well and healthy he does not feel that way.
If he does feel that way he may be pretty
-.ure that he is half sick. When he is half
sick it does not take long before he is
"whole-sick." Dr. Puree's Golden Medical Discovery is th-.* best medicine for a
man when he* is sick or getting sick'. It
puis him all right all round. It puts bis
stomach right to begin with, and that is the
most imp'-rtunt point It puts his liver
right, nnd th.it is lhe second most important point. It mirilies hi�� blood and fills it
with the lif*-iriving elements ->f the food
he eats. aMkfhat is the third important
point. Tt umes out all disease germs and
impurities of every discriptlou. It makes
the appetite keen and hearty. It is the
greatest blood-maker und flesh-builder. It
cures 98 per cent, of ill cases of consumption, weak lungs, spitting nf blood, obstinate coughs and kindred ailments. Thousands wbo were given up to die have testified to their recovery under this marvelous
medicine. An honest dealer will not urge
a substitute for the sake of a little extra
profit.    He gives you what you ask for.

Oooil  Work  of   the   Party.
When at Winnipeg, James Suther-
Iand, M.P.P., organizer ol the Liberal
tarty, speaking of the Liberal policy
generally, said it was meeting with
favor throughout the Dominion and
Waa proving that it was based on
sound principles. Business is in a
Satisfactory condition throughout the
Dominion. As to changes in the
tarilf it would not be possible or advisable to speak in view of the approaching conference at Quebec for which the
premier must hurry hack. As regards
lhe conference Mr. Sutherland would
hot venture anything' further than to
express the hope that a number of
points now in dispute between the two
ebuntries would be satisfactorily settled. One thing he would say was I
that not only had the tariff been -reduced much mote than appeared on
the surface, but' the preferential tarilf
Was proving as effective as had been
anticipated. Resides this the preferential tended and was greatly tending
ta develop trado with the mother
country. This wits one of the reasons
Why the Work now being done by
postmaster general Muloe.lc wns so
important. Increased trade required
Improved facilities for correspondence
and this Was what Mr. Mulock was
providing. Mr. Sutherland referred in
nn enthusiastic manner to the good
work done by the postmaster general
in reorganizing his department with
ihe result tbat the annual deficit hud
been nearly wilted out. He siid that
till the ministers were working'hard at
their departments and were making
great improvements. Much work remained to bo done, but the ministers
Were buckling down to it with renewed energy. In every department a
general overhauling had been going on.
Regarding the enlargement of the St
Lawrence canals, Mr. Sutherland said
they hoped to see this completed by
next season, and lie had no d.ulit thu
facility this would give to navigation
Would make itself felt in rates from
and to the west. At present the
stnallness of the canals on ihe east
end has a tendoncy to hanaicap the
Canadian carrying trado.
' Tin pro-taut state of afftirs on the
Intercolonial railway is I hat. the Drum-
���1)011(1 Outinty railway is rented for
another year by the government. This
will, in all probability, become a permanent part of the Intercolonial system at an early date. It gives it a
western terminus in Canada's chief
com'tiercial centre, Montreal, anal thus
places the road in a much belter posi-
li'in than when it ended at Levis.
With this improvement and the in
creased traffic thereby secured, the
government hope to miffo the road
c-nno up to a pelf supporting basis in
abort tiir.o without Increasing? the
rates to the people. Mr. Sutherland
also referred to the iiniui-*,i'ation work
done this year.
A   Distressing   Malady Cure! by the
Cn or Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
From tlio Hartlaud, N It., Advertiser, 4
Right in o-ir owu village is reported
another of the rem irkab'e cures that
make Dr. Wi'liatus' Pink Pills so
popular throughout the land. The
oase is Mial ef Mrs. E. W. .Millar. The
Advertiser interviewed lior husband,
who was glad to relate the circumstances for publication, that others
might read and have a remedy put into
their hands, as it were. "For five
years," said Mr. Millar, my wifo was
unable to walk without r.id. One
physician diagnosed her case as coining from a spinal affection. Other
doctors called the malady nervous
prostration. Whatever tbe trouble
was, she was weak and nervous. Her
limbs had no strength and could not
support her body. There also was a
terrible weakness in her back, Three
months ago she could not walk, but as
a last resort, after trying many medicines, she began to use Dr. Williams'
Piuk Pills. Improvement was noted
in a few days, and a few weeks has
done wonders in restoring her health,
To day she can walk without assistance. You can imagine her delight as
well as my own. We owe her recovery to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I
recommend them tor any case of nervous weakness or general debility."
Mr. Millar is part owner and manager of one of our lumb.r mills and is
well known throughout the county.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by
g >ing to the root of the diseaso. They
renew aud huild up tho blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from tha system. Avoid imitations by insisting that every box
you purchase is enclosed in a wrapper
bearing the full trade mark, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.    602

An Ontario Farmer Rescued by
Paine's Celery Compound.
Wells k Richardson Co.,
Gentlemen :- It is with very great
pleasure that I test ify to the value of
your great medicine, Paine's Celery
Compound. For nearly two years I
suffered from indigestion and kidney
and liver troubles; - After trying several medicines that did not effect a
cure, I decided tu try your compound.
Btjfore using it I was so low in health
tbat I could not eat or sleep. I could
not lie in bed owing to pain in my
back, and it was only by resting on
my elbows and knees that I was enabled to obtain a slight degree of ease.
Before I had fully taken one bottle of
your medicine I began to'improve, I
have now taken in all fourteen bottles
with grand results. . I am a fanner
and am now working every day. 1
am a living witness to the worth of
Puiiio's Celery Compound.
Yours sincerely,
Cl. J. Sjivb,

-a   a _
C. Troyer, of Windermere, seems
mightily offended because we bare not
treated him according to his ideas as a
gentleman and have omitted to address
him as "Esquire." You cannot make
a silk purse out of a sow's ear and we
are afraid we cannot make a gentleman
out of Mr. Troyer, for both he and the
journalist who publishes his letter,
transgress by their acts the first principles that go to make gentlemen.
T.-oyer "Esq.", complains lhat we
have misrepresented the application to
vote which ho filled up. Wo have ob
taiued a copy and it is as wo said it
was. For Troyer " Esquire's " own
information, and as be does no? appear
to know what hn signed, we publish
the copy of his application :
"I, the undersigned, claim to have
my name inserted in the Register of
Voters for the E tst Kootenay Electoral
District, in virtue of my being a British subject of the full age of tweuty-
oue years, having resided In this
province twelve months, and in the
saidelectorul district for two months
hereof, and not being disqualified by
any law in force in this Province.
���' Dated at Windermere, in the Province of British Columbia, this thirty-
first day of May. 1H9S.
" Signature ��� Christian Troyer,
Residence -Windermere.
Profession, Trade or Calling-Miner."
As Troyer "Esq,", was just a week
in the electorate "Immediately previous" to sending in this application,
be will thus find that his boomerang
has returned and hit him in the neck.
We don't wish to see him getting into
any trouble but. there is u law iu this
province which provides for the punishment of persons illegally claiming
to vote. Neither Troyer " Esq.", nor
anyone else hns tbe right to break
that law with impunity, and no gentleman or person deserving the title if
"Esq." would do it.
Toby Creek Mines.
F. M. Chadbourne, who recently returned to Nelson from a four weeks'
visit to northeast Kootenay, where he
went to examine and report on some
mineral claims for an English syndicate, reports that his company have
secured six claims in two groups, One
is on Toby creek, and consists uf the
Matterhorn, Eikhorn and Iron Horse
claims, situated about 28 miles frotn
Windermere. The other group consisting of the Headlight, King Solomon
and the Silver Islet, are located at tbe
head waters of Horse Thief creek. Mr.
Chadbourne took a force of men and
supplies and did considerable work on
the first group. He found a splendid
surface showing In the claims of copper-iron pyrites, which also carries
gold. lie also found another large
ledge un the Matlerhorn which shows
lead carrying grey copper, which he
considers very rich. The second group
are about three miles distant from the
first aud are of a somewhat different
character. On them is a ledge of
copper-stained quartz with bunches
anal streaks of grey copper, which
shows principally on the Headlight.
The vein has thrown out immense float
which can bo traced orer tho entire
claim. No work has been done on
these claims yet, but ICO pounds of the
float were brought tu Nelson lor assay,
which has been found very satisfactory, and work on them will be commenced in about throe weeks.
Owing to the difficulty of access this
section of British Columbia has made
but slow progress, but several good
properties nre now being opened up on
Copper Creek and the north fork of
Toby creek, as well as those tnetitionod
above. The Jumbo and Mineral King
| claims, situated ou Toby creek are also
attracting attention and will iu time
be shippers. All the country neeils is
development and facilities for transportation will be provided.���Nelson

For some years the Indies of Canada
have suffered much loss and inconvenience from uso of deceptive home dyes
put upto look like the popular D amend
Dyes. These imitation package dyes
were sold at very low prices to retail
merchants, who in turu made immense profits on them wheti sold to
women who were unfortunately influenced to buy them.
These imitations of Diamond Dyes
were never sold more thau once to any
woman. They possessed no foundation qualities or good points to make
them valuable or popular. They were
made of the cheapest ingredients, the
colors were dead, muddy and unsightly
and they ruined all materials they
came in contact with. These common
dyes are now so dospised and shunned
that storekeepers are glad to sell them
at half price to be rid of them.
The Diamond Di'es are still marching on to new victories, and have
always maintained their position by
true merit alone. Beware of the imitation and cheap dyes that are still
pushed on tbe unsuspecting by some
dealers. If a storekeeper values your
trade he will recommend you to use
the Diamond Dyes, 505

Of course a large concern like Shorey's

tomorrow and so on, consequently they cannot be expected to attain the proficiency t f
