The Toronto Telegram says: Cauada's
Senate has been blamed hy the Globe
for putting several million dollars into
the pockets ot McKenzie tt Mann by
taking the Yukon railway job off their
hand). II the Senate enriched these
two poor, simple-minded contractors
by knocking oue deal on the head, how
muoh more must the British Columbia
Government have enriched them by
Wiping out half a daizen deals which
gave them a claim on ibe assets of the
Province? The Senate was the sweet
little cherub that sat up aloft and sated William and Dan from being financially brokeu on tha wheels from their
inability to oope with with Hon. Clifford Sifton. And now the 8emlin
Martin Government does the cherub
act once more, aud lo, MoKensie and
Mann will not have to bankrupt themselves by carrying out the railway
building jobs inte which they were
trapped by the surpassing genius ot the
Turner Government.

'���The Toronto "World " says: '-The
Hon. Joseph Martin looks to be the
coming man in the history of Canada.
He has alrsady distinguished himself,
and tbe Liberals are in power to-day
because Mr. Martin shewed them how.
Some of tbe legislation which was carried during the late session in British
Columbia is on new and progressive
lines, snd will meet with the support
of Canadian people in every province."
The Semlin Government are to lie
congratulated on the steps they have
taken to protect the poor man against
the ricli corporation. In the estimates
appeared a vote ot $���3000 for constitutional litigation and the Hon.- Jcs.
Martin explained this by saying that
"this amount was to provide aid to
people oppresed by rich and powerful
corporations, such as the settlers along
the line of Canadian Pacific Railway
who were not allowed to use water and
the poor prospectors on the Esquimalt
and .Nanaimo Railway lande. These
people would be protected at the coast
of the Proviuce."

Writing of lhe past session of ths B.
C, Legislature the Winnipeg Tribune
���ays:-"With the master hand of the
courageous Martin taking turns at the
helm, it Is little wonder that lhe billows
of opposition criticism broke harmlessly over the bulwarks of the State ship.
and that the government emerged from
the session stronger and in better condition than when it began the voyage.
It may be said with perfect safety that
more nseful legislation wns passed during the sesiion just closed, than was
produced during the entire parliament
to which the present one succeded.
British Columbia now has a government of which it can well afford to lie
proud, for the legislation just placed
upon the statute books demonstrates
that ths administration is resolved to
stand by and protect the interests of
tbe province."

Iu an interview with the Colonial
Mr. K. L. T.Galbraitb, th* well known
founder of Fort Steele, ia reported as
saying:
"A good deal of attention has been
directed towsrd Windermere, about 75
miles north ol Fort Steele near the
head waters of tb* Columbia, where a
large number of very promising leads
of high grade ore hare been discovered.
During the coming year ther* will be a
large influx of prospectors, capitalists
and others who will flock to that section. A large copper mine, now owned by a Rossland syndicate, which has
been doing development work during
the past winter, ie situated immediately behind tb* town of Windermere and
affords facilities for shipping as s
wagon road can be made to the mine.
The ore is copier of a hi h grade. On
Dutoh creek, Toby, Horse Thief No. 1
Horse Thief, and No. 2 some excellent
minea have been discovered during the
past season and a number of men have
been busy doing development work, the
report from here being of a most favor
able character.
" What is wanted, said Mr. Gal
braith, is a line of road connecting
East Kootenay with the Oreat Northern at Kalispell or Jennings, Montana.
This road would parallel the Rocky
Mountains, would run through the
richest mineral section of East Kootenay towards Golden on the C.P.R.,
and would afford excellent means of
ehipping. The road is urgently needed
and it is understood that a strong
English syndicate will take hold of the
enterprise and push it tp completion,
Tb* r*ad would open up and do more
towards developing East Kootenay
than any road that can be built,
"East Kootenay has the double
advantage of offering homes for a large
number ot settlers. Fruits, vegetables
and graii of sll -kinds ean be grown
successfully end then Is a good local
Market for all those products that can
be railed. It is tbe Intention of the
Kootenay Navigation Company te keep
the North Star running during the
coming year from Jennings. Montana,
to Fort Steele. In the Windermere
section the Duchess will run from
Golden to Windermere, affording those
entering the country mesne ol travel
to the mines, while stages will ply
between Fort Steele snd Windermere,
during the season, thus giving those
coming in via Fort Steele and Crow's
Nest. Pass connection with ths stsamer
at Wiadumere."

THUNDER HILL.
To The Editor Goluin Era:
Victoria, Mch, IS, '99.
Sir.���In your interesting article
���'Round About the Mines," in the
Gomikx Era ot March 3rd, some remarks in reference to th* Thunder
Hill mine would seem to imply that
the concentrator waa closed down for
want of ore. This was not the case.
The closing down of work on the mine
and mill waa not in any way due to
lack ot or*, but simply and solely to
the want of funds to complete the reduction works and continue work on
the mine.
The Company's difficulties unfortunately, occurred at the time of the silver panic in 1893, when hundreds ot
the heat mining properties in the United States were also obliged to shut
down, and money for mining purposes
oould not be had on any terms.
The concentrator was not completed
wlies work was stopped, some of ihe
accessary appliances being then on the
way from Chicago.
Yours truly,
J Ams Brady.

A GREAT RAILWAY
ENTERPRISE.
KOOTENAY & N. W. RAILWAY.
Arrival or Mr. Wut.on. C.E.
Mr. Watson, Engineer for the Kootenay nnd Northwest Railway Company
otherwise known as "The Uolden Era
Air Line," arrived at Golden last week
with his engineering outfit. Mr. Watson is waiting instructions frotn his
principals, and is not prepared to give
any definite information at present as
to his operations.
This is the railway which is projected
from tho American boundary to the
Yukon, and behind which it is supposed tho Great Northern has some interest, with a view to opening up the
great and rich tract of territory lying
west of the Rocky Mounttins. and included in the great basin of eastern
British Columbia. If this railway
goes ahead, as is anticipated, it wiil
be one of the most important railway
enterenriscs yet launched on the American continent, nnd its importance to
Golden, Windermere, Tete Jauno
Cache, end the Omenica and Peace
River countary cannot be  over-rated.

THE STEAM FIRE ENGINE.
A second exhibition of the engine
was given by Mr. Parsons, who ie
returning from the coast cities, on
Monday afternoon. In about 10 minutes after lighting the fire a powerful
stream from a 1J inch nozzle was
thrown through the ordinary length
of hose used at fires, and ordinary fire
duty was more than maintained for
several hours. Streams ranging from
one to one and one quarter inch were
thrown over 200 feet. Walter Houston, a lad about 14 years of age, ran
tbe engine most of the time from the
���tart, and Mr. Parsons says he is the
most apt engineer he has ever fa-en.
Eighty pounds steam pressurr, producing over 160lbs. water pressure,
was easily maintained, firing with
the door ooen. A good start cannot be
made owing to the poor housing cf
the engine, as the house is only a bure
covering. Everything is therefore
damp and cold but everyone who wit
nessed the test noticed how easily i)-,e
engine steamed aivl maintained i,
steady solid lire Btreum. The chief oi
the new fire company, Mr. McDermot,
made another lest, not In ii;���j .,-, u iho
usual practice of steam fire engines,
oil boxes snd buiter mi-a, alalia, etc.,
were used for over half *m hour to m
what could lie done with wood foal,
and here the boiler again demonstratad
she could do good work keeping up
from 40 lo oOlbs. ol steam, which Mr.
Parsons claims is about all that is
ever required for ordinary fire duty.
This gives with tho Ronald pump
from 80 to lOOlbs. water pressure, and
is really more than liremen can handle
on medium lines of hose, even with the
assistance of the holder. Tnis was
shown when tho play pipe for a moment got free, as without the stake or
holder big pressures cannot be held.
80lbs. is the regular woaking preesure
in Eastern eities. Thus it was shown
that in case of coal shortage anytime,
with wood effective work can be
done.
Mr. Parsons had replnced tbe broken water glass, and a n.w piece of
packing at the exhaust joint which
had given out at the first trial, neither
of which wore defects, nor had it
interfered with the working of the
engine, as it never stopped, nor was
tlio power of the engine lessened.
These now- wore in placo again and all
was ns tight as a bottle, and everybody who witnessed Monday's display
were satisfied that the engine is a very
nice running machine and so easily
handled, as Mr. Parsons, after the
first fire, left it all in tho hands ot
strangers to operaie, and when a
school lad can do the work so well as
"Walter Houston, and so easily, wl at
iiiav we expect from our older engineers?
Tho whole outfit, engine (secondhand) all new reels, 1000 feet of hose,
play pipes, nozzles, S amuse coupler,
lanterns, sleigh runners, and combination bell is costing less than a new
unglne alone. With these considerations what town of this size should go
without fire protection ?
Steps should at onco be taken to
secure a proper fire hall so that all can
be safely and properly housed and
cared for. If this is done, and it
should not cost very much, we are-
satisfied no place per population in
the whole Province can boast of a
better fire coinpanv, or a more powerful fire appliance aud plant than the
town of Golden.

Nature's Own
Dyspepsia Qurz
Nature's remedies are not like man's���they never
fail.   Of the many remedies intended to cure dyspepsia,
sour stomach, distress after eating, -weight in the stomach,
,   wind on the stomach, loss of appetite, dizziness, nausea, im-  ,
poverished blood, catarrh of the stomach, sick headache, and
similar results of indigestion, only one is uniformly and unfailingly successful���that is nature's own remedy, found only in
DR. VON STAN'S PINEAPPLE TABLETS.
The pineapple contains a large amount of Vegetable Pepsin��� I
nature's most potent aid in digesting food. Mix meat and pineapple
and agitate the mixture at a temperature of 103��, and the pineapple
a will completely digest the meat.
Take two of Dr. Von Stan's Pineapple Tablets after your meals J
and they will digest your food without aid from the stomach. This
of course rests, strengthens and heals the stomach.   The tablets
will cure the most chronic case of dyspepsia.   They give im-
. mediate relief.   Take them for a short tune and your stomach
' will be as strong and hearty as that of a fanners boy.
They are as pleasant to the palate as candy.

If niirn onlv knew it. they could work to
almost any extent on through middle life
and Into old age, if they would only take a
little common sense care of their health.
The trouble is that they do not take the llt-
Hc- stitches here and there that are neces-
sarv to preserve health. They pay no attention to the signs of on-ceming ill-health.
A little biliousness, a little indigestion, a
little loss "f sleep anil appetite, a little
nervousness, a little headache, a little
shakiness in the morning, and a little dull*

all these little things they neglect. Dr.

RIOTING NEGROES
DISBANDED 1XHUNES FIRE FROM
A TRAIN ON PASSERS RY.
Citizens Fired a Volley Into a Train
Which Aired the St^roes and
Injury! a Train Hand,
Atlanta,' Ga., March 9.���The. Tenth
Illumines (negroes), Colonel Jones, who
were mustered out nt Macon yesterday, began to show their Ill-temper
as soon as the train bearing them
home began to move out of Macon.
Producing revolvers nnd otlier arms
which tliey In some way managed to
keep with them they began flriug
from the windows, bullets h flew in
every direction us tho train sped ou
and pusseraby were compelled to seek
safety. Luckily only one person was
shut at Macon. Will tioodyenr, a 10
year old white boy, whose arm was
fractured by a ball. As the train
passed the various stations ou tin:
road the rioting was renewed, shots
being fired from the train nt the
people on the platforms to see tlle
train go by.
At Griffin, Ga., where tlle first sec-
tiuu of the train stopped, about 11.III)
p.m.. occurred the most serious trouble
of tlle day. Tlle regiment came over
the Central of Georgia railroad In
three sections. When the train stopped at Griffin the negroes, who by
a,his time had filled ap on whiskey,
begun firing their pistols and yelling
like Indians, Over 'HID shots were
rived nnd the police were powerleaM
to resist. The city wns nt the mercy
of the negroes, who kept up a fusil-
ade of shots until tho trnln carried
them beyond  the city limits.
News of this outrageous conduct
spread rapidly over Griffin and it was
determined that tlle next section of
the regiment sliould b-i held in check
Mayor Duvls telephoned to Governor
(andler asking hint to order out the
Griffin IMfles The governor sent
him word that he would consult
authorities and instruct linn in a lew
minutes. Mayor Davis, thon order*-d
out a lompany ou his own rcsponsl
b'lity as there was no time to lose. The
men v.i.to given five rounds of allium-
nltion and under command of Limit
David nniniied to tiie ile|-ot. In addition to the n.ilitia the mayor and
i-'herlff Morris deputized nearly UlO
citizens to assist the officers iu pro-
serving the peace and- protecting tin
city.
About 5.15 p. in., the second section
caino in sight nud above the roar of
the troi,rt ccnld be heard the rattio of
fire-arms, which were b->iaig diseharg-
��: indlscriiuinntely. Whon this train
came'fo a stand-still thi negroes saw
1*00 heavily armed men, who commanded them to keep quiet. The negroes
were awed and with a few exceptions
wen* as docile as lambs. To those
[ructions, cracked heads were admin.
istered.    *
When the train pulled out from the
deptit lhe negroes thought tliey wern
out of the reaoh of the citizens and
tliey bt-gan firing at houses. At the
first shot a volley was pdured into the
train by tho citizens und militia: Geo.
Agee. a tr.ilnuian. was fatally shot 111
the aMomeii and one negro slightly
wounded. There was no trouble In
Atlanta, as the police were prepared
tor them.
The ((ueen's Trip.
Loudon, March 9.���The Queen haa**
poi-tpuui'd her. departure to the south
of France until Saturday next, lu
"-ouseiiuence of ths storm in tlle channel. The postponement of her majesty's, departure is a striking illus-
trntion ol the extreme cure and of the
precautions witli whicli she Is- sur-
,i*oiiiiiled.
' Instead of going in her own yacht to
Chcroourg, us usual, she decided to
avoid tlle long sea tr'p' anil go from
Folkestone to Boulog-ie-Sur-Mcr In a
sptciul passenger boat, whicli has
been changed 'or Its Jghty minutes'
trip. All sorts of staging and olat*
forin,-!* had been erected at Folkestone,
where Rear Admiral John Ful'ertun,
aide-de-camp cf the Queen, who hus
been iu command of the royal yacht
Victoria nnd Albert since 1K84, ami.a*
host of court officials have been sup*
eriutendltig thu arrangements. Two
trial trips have already been made .and
everything was in readiness to-dny:
At Boulogne-Sur-Mur, In addition to
n large force of gendarmes and custom house officials, two battailous o"
infantry were in rendiness, while the
entire railroad line to Nice was guarded by soldiers, posted at intervals,
supplementing the usual force of railroad employees detailed for duty in
such emergencies. Tlle French gov-
eminent is taking unusual precaution 011 account of the supposed hostility of a portion of tin people to
the Queen, All these arrangements
'n France were upset by a dispatch
from Rear Admiral Fullertou postponing the journey on account of the-
wentlter prevailing in the channel,
classed as a "storm." whereas only a
moderate sea was running. '

tiveness comes from the refusal of the excretory organs to perform their dutieB
regularly from contributing cunt-en,
usually disordered digestion. Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills, prepared on scientific
principles, are so coinpounded that certain iugredlents in tueiii pass through
the stomach and act upon the bowels so
as to remove their torpor and arouse
them to proper action. Many thousands
are prepared to bear testimony to their
power in this respect.

For a long time, prior to taking Dr.
Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills my nerve
lystem was greatly deranged and I was
terribly nervous, so much so that in my
business (Linesman of the Kingston
Electric Light Co;}) my extreme nervousness naturally made the following of my
business extremely hazardous. Before
taking Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills
my kidneys had been affected for some
time. I had constant soreness and stiff-
nese across my loins and the small of my
back. ' My appetite was variable and
very poor. ��� I also suffered greatly with
constant headaches. I am glad to be
ableta infornj.you that Dr. Ward's Pills
���completely cureel me of all the above
ailments and made me a -Well man. 1
have found no ny*,:l.cine like Dr. Ward's
Blood and Nerve Pills, although I have
tried many different kinds. They acted
quickly and effectually on my nerve
system, making my nerves strong and
removing all indications of nervousness.
These valuable pills also removed all
kidney and back trouble and restored to
me a healthy vigorous appetite. I have
had no headache since five months ago
and feel justified in saying that they are
a wonderful remedy. They not only
removed nervousness, but gave me
healthy kidneys, removed all soreness
and stiffness from my back and loins.
cured me of headache and gave me a
good appetite, consequently 1 am highly
pleased. I know- of no medicine that
equals Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve
P'ils for nervousness, chronic headache,

DISEASE ^OF THE SPINE
A Mal.dy That Makes Life' Almost Unbear.
' abls-A Nova Scotia Lady Telia
How to Cure It.
Mrs. Frank Minnrd, of Milton, N.S.,
is a lady who possesses tho confidence
of a large circle of friends. Mrs. Minnrd lias been a sufferer from spinal disease and attendant complications, and
to a reporter she recently gave tho particulars of her enre. She said:. "Asa
result ot the trouble I suffered terribly. At times the pain wonld be con
fined to my back, nnd at other times it
seemed to affect evory nerve in my
body, from the top of my head to my
toes. As a result I was reduced greatly iu strength, and was nnable to stand
upon my feet. long enongh 'to attend tn
my household work. When doing any
kind of work which required a standing
position I had to provide myself with a
high chair as a means of support.' The
medicine -which the doctor prescribed
for me did not seem to afford me more
than temporary relief from the pain,
and I was gradually growing weaker
and weaker. Finally the doctor suggested that I should use Dr. Williams'
Fink Pills, and acting on his advice I
began to take them, I had only used
a few boxes when the agony I had
suffered for months began to abate, and
I began to regain my strength. I con
tinned using the pills for a short time
longer, and was again in full possess
ion of my health and strength, and able
to do my household work. I have never
enjoyed better health tliau I am doing
at present.

Seems as if consumption always
picks out the brightest and host. Fully
one-sixth of all the deaths that occur
in the world are caused by consumption. Many -hiugs were once considered impossible. It would be strange
if medical science did not make some
progress. Tiie telegraph and telephone,
the phonograph, the electric light-
all were once impossible, and once It
wak impossible to cure consumption.
That was before the time of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. Taken so-
cording to directions, this standard remedy will cure 9ft per cent of all cases
of consumption. Consumption ii
caused snd fostered by impurity in the
blood. It is cured by purity and rich

cured by the "Medical Discovery." It
builds up solid healthy flesh and vigorous strength.

THE WINDERMERE
DISTRICT.
(Kelson Miner.)
The Windermere mining district of
North Cast Kootenay is attracting a
great deal of attention at present. Mr.
E. J. Scovil of Windermere, who is at
present in Kaslo, was interviewed by
The Miner and gives the following
interesting information about the rich
district:
This district is attracting much attention for its wonderful discoveries of
copper, galena and gold, throughout
the mining centres. Galena mineral
disooveries during the past season
warrant the belief that in the uear
future it will only he second to the
tilver Slocan as a producer of high
grade ores, and undoubtedly second to
none as a copper producer, its gold
deposits lieing not unlike those of
the Boundary Creek district, having
immense bodies et gold-bearing quartz
assaying all the way from 14 to MO.
Good tubatantial pack trails eitend
far up the principal creeks. So far
Toby, Horse Thief, Boulder, Dutch and
Number 2 creeks have beeu prospected,
but from a protpector'a standpoint the
entire district is iu itt infancy. Over
600 locations were recorded during
1898, the most of which are under
various stage* of development. In
fact tbe Windermere district offers
more inducements to the prospector
aud capitalist than any other iu British Columbia.
Many fine ranches ar* located in
this district, and a large amount of
splendid grazing Uud upon which
many hundreds of horses and cattle
range during the summer and winter,
the equal of which is hard to find ill
the west. The Canadian Pacific Ruilway have announced their intention
to build from Fort Steele Junction to
Fort Steele, thence by most direct
route to Windermere to connect with
the Arrow Lake Branch through Toby
creek valley, and it is positive that
next summer will see a large influx of
protpectots and promoters into this
district which offers such wonderful
advantages. In fact all thia district
needs is capital to make it one of the
greatest mineral producers in the
world. There is a good pack trail extending from the Columbia or Windermere Lake, East Kootenay, through to
Argenta on Kootenay Lak*. The B.C.
Government has placed $3,500 among
th* estimates for 1899 for a bridge
across tb* Columbia at th* Salmon
Beds, north end of Lake Windermere.
Two other townsites have been
surveyed, namely, Copper City, owned
by a Rossland syndicate, situated on
the northwest side of the Lake and the
Salmon Badn on the extreme north end
of the lake. Columbia, situated between Toby and Hoise Thief creeks, is
talked of as a probable townsite but
nothing definite has yet occurred on
same. The C.P.R. will undoubtedly
lay out their own townsite. During
th* past summer th* New Golden
Syndicate of London, Eng., who own
altogether about 30 properties, spent a
large amount of money in developing
with grand results. Also representatives of American companies and English syndicates have secured some very
promising propositions aud intend
developing ou a large scale during lhe
coming season. The McLeod group
will lie one ol the advertisements o(
the district as a producer. Tbe following are a few uf th* properties:
DELPHINE MINE.
Situated on Toby Creek, owned by
Messrs. Stark, Kimpton and Hareiton.
The shaft it now down 105 [eet. A

the entire distance. The ledge on the
surface was about six inches wide, and
bas gradually widened until at a
depth of 106 feet it is nearly four feet.
The or* it a sulphide, carrying grey
copper and galena. Tbe clean ore will
assay very high, an average sampls

cent lead. A large amount nf ore is
on lhe dump ready for shipment. Some
20 tons were sacked last fall and packed to the Columbia River Ior shipment.
Large shipments will be made as soon
at season will permit. The lead can
be traced for over 4,500 feet. A large

IN SPRINGTIME
Paine's Celery Compomd
It the Giver of Health an.l New
Ufa to the Sick  and DU-
eased.
Spring, wilh ita bright sunthint,
lengthening days, warn rains, anal
its promises of a new life in nature, is
fast approaching aud will be hailed
with the delight by the old and young
who are enjoying full health an 1 bodily
activity,
To thousands th* coming of spring
mean* a fuller cup of agony and euffsr-
ing; it is a time when the dark grave
claims many victims.
When men and women are burdened
with iieatli*ilea)iiii; sicknesses, such as
kidney diaeasos, liver complaint, blood
troubles rheumatism, neuralgia, and
the terrible after effects of grippe;
spring has no charms for them. They
have allowed themselves to sink inio a
condition of misery and helpeatness
during the winter that must quickly
terminate life, unless that true health
and lifegiver, Paine's Celery Compound
be made use ol without delay.
The nervous system, weak und nn-
strong, must bs fortified: the blood
sluggish, impure and watery, must he
made clean and fast flowing, and every
organ of digestion must be toned up to
true health pitch.
Nature's wonderful successful medicine, Paint's Celery Compound, does
this good work aa no other remedy
ran do. It acts aa a nerve and brain
food, it gives life to stagnant blood, it
banishes permanently kidney diseases
liver oomplaiut, rheumatism, dyspepsia
and other troubles >hat make life a
misery.
The thousands of thankful l*it*rs received from Canada's beat people are
th* best and strongest proofs that
Paine's Celery Compound cures. When
your life is in danger do not be misled
by common advertised medicines,
as many of them are dangerous and
unsafe. Ask fer th* kind thst has
cured your friends and neighbors���lhe
kind that "makes people .veil."
