Hartman for the Hammond Co, It is a
splendid piece of property, and is ready
tor development, whicli will be begun
at once.
Mr. Stuart, ot St. Thomas, who has
had extensive mining experience in the
Australian Colonies, is much impressed
with the Spillamachene country,
which he says possesses, immense
mineral wealth.
C, Baines made an important strike
last week on his claim adjoining the
Bald Mountain Co.'s property. The
discovery consists of a body of good-
looking galena live feet in thickness
and lying right on the ledge,
Major Clohecy expected to have the
trail completed last week from the

having been run through heavily
mineralised ground all the wny, At
30 feet from the surface an ironstone
formation was cut into, which carried
galena throughout. Frank reports
that the shatt struck the main lead
just before he left. He left. Iignin this

Prospectors' Hap
The prospector's map of the non hern
portion ol East Kooteiiny. as compiled
by F. C. Lang, has now been pub
lished. This is the best map that has
yet been Issued relating to the mining
resources and locations of this province.
The prospector can tell at a glauce
the different species of op-s tumid
within tho district and the localities
where the different oies are found. This
is got at hy a system ot coloring,
while on the margin there is a complete list of locutions iu the distriot up
to tha time of the compilation of the
map, coloied streaks opposite each
indicating the class of ore found then.
.���mother particularly good thing about
the map is the fact that the ininiug
divisions are clearly shown, so that
the prospector cun tell at a glume
where the boundaries lie, and iu which
division to make his locution. The
actual Bine of each ilalin is given in
the margiiial reference, also its title
whether crown -mint or merely location. Tlie trails, roads, creeks, and
rivers In the district are clearly and
accurately shown, ulso the railway
stations, and the distances iv.nn these
aqd from the principal points iu tie
district. The map reflects great ored t
on the skill, care and trouble displayed hy Mr. Lung in its compilation,
and one result oi his work must be to
facilitate the exploration ot this part
of the country, and to draw the
attention of prospectors to the large
area that yot remains to Im explored,
with every promise of rich reward to
the prospector, as well as to the
capitalist and the mining investor
who follows him in the work ot developing th* discoveries and making the
natural wealth ol the country available
tor production tnd use. Th* price ot
th* m��p is a dollar, and *v*ry prospector-** well at every one who is
Interested In mining in the district-
should secure a copy.
To The Eilitor.
Sir, I wish to bring under yom
notice a case of injustice to ine, ami
what is a reflection on the administration of justice in your town. Ou
Monday, 12th ult., a summons was
issued at. the instance ot the Oolden
Lumber Co, against me. It had been
left at Mr. Connor's house tor me, and
on my going there I received ii, the
time being then half-past 12.1 This
summons required me to appear at
1 p.m., so that I had only half an
hour's notice In which to get my
witnesses and defend the action. As
the time wss quite insufficient I applied
to the magistrate, Mr. Armstrong,
for an adjournment to enable mn to get
the necessary evidence, telling him the
whereabouts of the necessary witnesses and the nature of their evidence.
He refused unless I would put up (20
���what tor is a mystery. The company's agent In Winnipeg engaged
nine of us at $><', a month, and paid
our fares, and arranged that $20
should be deducted from our earnings to
cover such fares. After we had been
at work a few days I took sick and
hod to go to the Hospital. The men
then were told hy Mr. C-rlln that the
amount to be deducted for their fares
was (42, but he promised to see it he
could get it reduced, and he subsequently cut it down to $34.50 This
amount the company sued for, nnd
also some stores they claimed I hud out
of the store, and which I never had.
When I told the magistrate that I
wanted the witnesses to show what
bargain was made he very cnriouMy
shouted out "How ridiculous for Mr.'
Carlin to be responsible for the acts of
the agent." Now, sir, I contend thnt
the magistrate had no business to act
in that unfair way as counsel for
plaintiff, but that his business was to
hear both sides and endeavor to give
a just decision on the evidence, Surely
1 wus entitled to prove my case, and
it I tailed l was of course prepared to
suffer for it. The magistrate theu
ordered me to pay the claim torthwith,
and on my - intimating my wish to
appeal a-juinst such administration of
justice he said he could only permit
my appeal on mr patting up $50. It
is also a curious thing that the agent
who arranged with us was in Golden
un Saturday and Sunday, and on m>
asking Mr. Carlin why he did noi
keep him to give evidence he replied
that he did not want him. It my case
is an instance of tha high-handed way
in which justice may be administered
in this province, then it seems to me
that it is high lime people were
afforded some protection against such
gross wrong. M. W. Bi.akb.

The Hammond Syndicate
Professor Hardman returned on
Wednesday from the Fort Steele
countrv, where he has been for some
time examing and reporting on properties on behalf of the syndicate repr- -
seated by Mr. Hammond of Toronto.
He was accompanied by Mr, Bruce,
Three properties huve beeu bonded hy
the syndicate, and development work
la being done on them. On Saturday
last the two-stamp mill recent*-; sent
up for erection on Perry Creek wus
completed, snd mill tests from two
properties bonded were ready to be put
through by the manager, Mr, White.
Applications to have customs samples
put through the mill have already
come io from Goat River, Weaver
Creek, St. Mary's, and other localities.
This mill will prove of immense oil-
vantage to tbe district by enabling
mill tests to be made. Profess, r
Hardman thinks a lot of St. Mary's
basin as a mining field, and got tho
best panning out ot ore from titer*
that he has ever seen. Profess, i-
Hardman led today for the Bluewat r
to inspect the claims there which were
recently bonded by Mr. Hammond. As
the assays from these claims showed
such high grade ore the Profe-sor is
very anxious to make a careful inspe. -
tion of that part of the couutry. If
the returns already obtained are home
out by suoh inspection he considers
that it wiil be the making of this pint
of East Kootenay.

J. R Greenfield, of the postal
service nt Victoria, is relieving Mr.
Fletcher on the present tour of inspection, as that gentleman is ut preset.t
Buffering from an affection of the eye.
Mr. Greenfield speaks in high terms - f
the manner In which the Golden pi nt

that the Department receive few-r

(Edited by E. A. Hague.*,.)
FRIDAY, JULY   23,  1897.
It is the duty of a newspaper to
expose wrong-doing in public affairs,
and to endeavor to voice public opinion
in demanding: a remedy against wronc,.
In another column we publish a letter
of complaint from M. \V. Blake. We
were not present at the sitting of the
court, but if the facts ure as stated we
havo no hesitation in saying that tbe
case was most improperly conducted
by the presiding magistrate. It needs
no argument to show that no matter
wbo or what the persons are that
come before the court they are entitled
to full and fair cousideration, and to
every opportunity to put their oase
before the court in its entirety. The
administration of justice as carried out
in British Columbia would not he tolerated in most governments under the
British flag. From the Supreme Court
to the lower courts the system reeks
with injustice. The machinery of the
courts Is regulated entirely in the
interests of the great capitalists and of
the legal profession. The rules of even
the Supremo Court of British Columbia
are a barbarity, and from what we
have seen of its adminstration we
wonder how tbe people quietly tolerate
a system which is worthy of the days
of the Star Chamber. Reformers are
urgently wanted in British Columbia,
but in no department of the publio
service is a good law-maker more
requisite than in that affecting the
judioiary and the general administration of justice. If judges and magistrates have not enough of tbe natural
sense of justice before tbem to fulfil
their offices with integrity and impartiality then the statute book itself
must bind their administration within
proper limits, and curtnil the discretionary power which is now so
badly exorcised.
Canada stands out today tt tlio one
British colony of importance where
the government do not own and
control the railways. This Dominion
has permitted tho Yankee polity of
railway monopoly to get itt merciless
claws on the throats of this people,
and instead of this government controlling the railways we have the
degrading spectaole of the railways
controlling the government. Thia hat
got to be ended, and the Dominion
tnd Provincial Governments had
better make op thtir minds to give no
more railway grants to private com
panics, bnt to build and equip the
railways themtelves. To tht disgrace
of publio administration it mntt be
admitted that the government railways
of Canada have so far been a failure,
while in other oolonies they tre a
success, Let the Laurier Government
remove this blot on publio administration, Just as good men can be got
to run the government railways as the
Canadian Pacific. The government
ought to get them, and show that the
railways can be managed successfully
by the people and for the people.
Is the crown grant system conducive
to the welfare of mining in British
Columbia? We doubt it. On all hands
capitalists nre buying 'up mines, und
chartering river-beds, which they ure
locking up to hold for sireculuiivo
purposos. They intend in some
instances neither to use these claims
themselves nor let anybody else
uso them. Wo believe that the
only true way to deal with minerul
claims is to limit the terms of ownership to use and occupation���that when
a mineral claim is unused fora certain
length of time it should be open to
someone else to take it up who would
use it. The plan we suggest in that
adopted in the whole of the Australian
Colonies, where they have had long
experience in mining, and it is fouud
to be most successful. Of course,
precautions are taken against claim-
jumping, so that the law is essentially
A meeting of the business men of
Golden is convened at tho Eka office,
at the hour of 8 p.m.. ou Tuesday
next, to take into consideration the
desirability of forming a boaid of
trade to loek'after tho commercial and
general inteiosts of the town and
district. An organization of this kind
is urgently needed, and we hope the
people of Golden will back up oar
efforts in this direction by putting in a
good attendance, and pulling together
shoulder to shoulder to advance the
interests of this portion of East
Much has' been said about ths coal
lands that will be opened by the construction of the Crow's Nest Railway.
We are informed that neither the
C. P. R. nor the Dominion Government will get an acre of known coal
lands through the construction
of this road, ns the whole of suoh
lands were corralled by a syndicate
some years ago.
Complaints are made to us ol the
C. P. R. blocking traffic by using the
bridge over the Kickinghorse tt a
side-line. With the immense amount
of freight shunting now done at
Golden the C. P. R. must recognise
the necessity of new side-lines. These
they should put in at once and so
avoid tlie inconvenience to the public
.complained of.
We -hould think that the time hat
arrived lor the establishment of a
post office at Carbonate. There is a
lot of traftio there, and the point is
one which commands tbe scene of
mining activity in the Spillamachene
and McMurdo districts.
Medical Statistics Prove that Eighty Out of
Every Hundred tre Tainted Wilh Catarrh.
Are you one of the eighty? Fool breath,
pains over the eyes, dropping in the throat,
and headaches denote it. Have you those
symptoma? Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powder
never disappoints in a cure.
"For years I was a victim of chronic
catarrh. I had tried all kinds of cures, and
had been treated by numbers of physicians,
but no cure was effected until I hail procured
and used Dr. Aguew's Catarrhal Powder.

Activity   tn   Prospecting ������ Mineral
King Will Be a Shipper.
[From Our Own Correspondent,]
Prospectors keep coming in, and
everything tends to show that the
country from Dutoh Creek to No. Two
Creek is one of great mineral wealth.
I am glad to announce that the powers
that he have seen fit to put on u gang
of men to open up a trail on the main
brunch of-Horse Thief Creek. Trails
have been made up the minor brunches
by private parties.
On Toby Creek Robert Jackson,
better known us Texas Hob, has lately
located a c'Lim in the vicinity of
Horse Shoe Bar, and has two men at
work developing his property, which���
judging by the spocitnens of copper
pyrites shown by Mr. Jackson���one
would infer thut he hns no reason at
all to complain of his luck. Mr.
Troycr und party, who havo located
in the same neighbourhood and for the
past month have been developing their
claim, seem very well satisfied with
the results of their work.
Work on the Mineral King, Mr.
Abel's galena proposition, has progressed rapidly, and as near as they
can judge the drift is within thirty
Feet of tlie load. Mr. Abel says that
tho rock they are now working in is
more or less mineralized. It is expected that ore from thn Mineral King
will lie hauled to the river tbis winter
and shipped the following spring.
Iii the last issue of the Eua we
noticed a small paragraph to the effect
that Mr. Lindsay's property, tbe
Mineral King, on Perry Creek, is a
very promising one. We are inclined
to think that tbe property alluded to is
tho Mineral King on Toby Creek,
which wns bonded to a Mr. Lindsay,
and what is more to the point that the
Mineral King allows more than a
promise, and we can safely predict
that in the near future the Mineral
King will" take a high place among
the mines of the Kootenay country
Specimens brought in touiuhc from
this property show that the drift has
now reached the lead, although about
thirty feet away from the cropping.
They show both heavy cube and steel
galena, and���what I believe is rare in
this country���native cop) er.
Mr. Bell, a prospector from Oregon,
hns struck a three-foot lead of galena
in the neighborhood of the Mineral
King on Toby Creek.

The manufacturers of Diamond Dyes
receive letter orders every day from
oountry places for Diamond Dyes.
Ladies say their village store-keeper
has been talked into buying one of the
very inferior makes put up to outwardly imitate the world-famed
Diamond Dyes. They have tried these
dyes, and the result was failure and
loss of goods.
Those country store keepers (many
of them) will not put in a stock of
Diamond Dyes until they get rid of
their poor goods, This means loss of
trade to the short-sighted dealer. Diamond Dyes are certainly the favorites
in country, town, and city, and all
live merchants sell them,

Bound the Ranches
J. W. Connor was amongst the
first farmers of Golden, having taken
up hit present farjn on the south tide
of the town eleven years ago. The
holding consists ot 88 acres, and is
ont of the most highly improved
farms In the distriot, the homestead
consisting of a fine house and outbuildings, inoluding stables 43x33 ft.
The farm lands are In a high state
of cultivation. The land is mostly
level and of good quality, but a portion
is tubjeot to flood from the sloughs of
the Kiokinghorse. At tht time of our
visit Mr. Connor was busy planting
out 800 fruit trees, purchased from
Mr. Hutcherson's nursery at Ladner's.
These trees have been planted 33 feet
each way. Mr. Connor finds crab
applet do well in,this district. Of
thit season's crops Id acres are in oats,
seven teres in potatoes, three acres in
vegetables, and a quantity of wheat
hat been sown for fowl feed. Mr.
Connor looks forwtrd to the time
when the progress of Golden will
justify him in subdividing into tub-
urban lots the upper portion of his
farm, whioh it well suited for the
John Gibson wat the first selector
of land In Golden, and he hatoeitainly
got the pick of this oountry. His
farm it high and dry, and the soil is
deep tnd of first-class quality, while
the Hospital Creek, whioh comes
down from the mountains behind it,
affords the very best facilities for
irrigation. Tbe farm consists of 160
acres. 14 acres are cleared and under
cultivation, the crops grown being
mainly potatoes and vegetables for
market. Mr. Gibson goes in extensively for poultry, and has already
had great success in raiting the early
broods tbit season. Mr. Gibson has
planted ont a lot of strawberries,
gooseberry, tnd apple trees this year.
At the corner of the Donald road is
the farm cultivated by Alexander
Campbell, who is one of the best and
most progressive fanners. The holding has been occupied by Mr. Campbell for the past tight yeara, and
consists of 56 acres, of which 38 acres
are in cultivation. The main crops
are oats and potatoes���about seven
acres of tbe former and two of the
latter. Tha rest of the land has been
seeded down to timothy for hay, and
thit does well. Mr. Campbell
grown apples very successfully, and
hat planted ont another lot of trees
this season. The homestead has an
excellent dwelling house and stable,
Mr. Campbell has had great difficulties
to contend against in protecting bit
farm againtt the flooding of the Hospital Creek, whioh bas been thrown on
part of the farm by the C.P.A. embankment, and bat necessitated an
immense amount of labor in protective
work. The soil of tbe farm is of first-
class quality, and the farm is well
managed and cultivated.
Along the foot of the hills Is Robert
Wild's farm of. 180 acres, of which Ch)
���ores are flat land and the remainder
runt oack on the foothills. About 80
aores are cleared and in cultivation.
The eropa grown are mainly oats,
wheat, and potatoes. There are 16 or
17 acres in oats, 13 acres in potatoes,
and enough wheat It grown for the
requirements of the farm. Three acres
of timothy an grown for hay. Mr.
Wild finds thtt for the first year
timothy gives a light yield, while the
second tnd third crops art good, bat
after thtt it begins to ran out. He
hat planted out a lot of applet thit
season. Poultry are ktpt, the breeds
being Plymouth Rock, Leghorn, and
Chlnt. The toll of tht farm it good,
and tht firm it wall situated for irrigation.
Tht neit farm It thtt occupied by
G. Anderson, who bat been settled
hen for four years. Tht farm con-
lists of 187 aorei, mon of it flat,
though the low-lying land it tubjeot
to floods from tht sloughs of the
Columbit, and be hat had hit oropi
destroyed by floodi for two yeari. In
addition to tha flat laud undtr cultivation for props of oats and hay, Mr.
Anderson hit ftnoed In, cleared, and
cultivated a portion of tha hillside
whioh ht has planted in potatoes, and
has bronght water on to It by an
irrigating dltoh from Lambkin Creek.
Mr. Anderson hat planted out a number ot fruit trees thit season. Ht tlto
keeps a well-stooked poultry yard.
Mr. Anderson has put good buildings
. od the farm, inoluding dwelling-house,
stable, and barn.
On tht south tide of tha railway
lint there art three firms, fhit

cleared and tinder cultivation. Mr.
Love's orop is mainly timothy for hay,
and of this he gets an immense yield.
Oats, potatoes, cabbage and other
vegetables are also grown extensively.
Poultry are kept only sufficient for the
use of the family, Mr. Love intends
giving fruit growing a trial, having
planted out a lot of strawberry plants
and apple trees. Amongst the homestead buildinus is a commodious barn,
43x83 ft. Mr. Love took up hit.
present farm about eight years ago.
The next farm is one leased by Wm.
Sutherland from P. Scully, of Victoria.
The holding consists of 153 acres, of
whioh 87 acres are in cultivation.
This season's crops consist of 13 acres
oats, two acres potatoes, and 10 to 11
acres of timothy bay. A lot of strawberries has just been planted out.
Peter Lund's farm is situated
opposite to that of G. Anderson. The
farm consists of 186 acres, of which
31 acres are cleared and in cultivation.
Of this area eight acres are in oats,
one acre in potatoes, and seven acres
in timothy for hay. Mr. Lund is a
great sufferer from the overflow of the
Columbia, and but for the fact that he
has done extensive improvements he
would have abandoned it. His case is
a particularly hard one, but bo considers the evil can be remedied by the
closing up of the sloughs which are
the cause of flooding the low-lying
There ire no more farms till we
reach Blaeberry River, where S. E.
Hambly owns ono of the best ranches
we know of in East Kootenay. Mr.
Hambly hails from the east-county
of Wellington. Ontario. He spert
some years cattle ranohing in Alberta.
He has made a splendid selection in his
farm at the Blaeberry, which he took
up two rears ago. Tbe land is rich
alluvial deposit, and free from floods.
A patch of land in front of the residence which has been sown in grass
shows a wonderful growth of clover,
and bears out the opinion expressed by
Mr. Hambly that tbe soil will grow
anything. Mr. Hambly has 30 acres
in cultivation this season, of which 18
acres are under oatt (whioh is the
principal crop), tour acres in timothy
one acre of rye, three to four acres of
wheat, one acre of barley, and one
acre of potatoes. The garden is nicely
kept, strawberries, gooseberries, and
currants promising good crops. Mr.
Hambly haa put a water-wheel in
the Blaeberry River to raise water for
irrigating the farm. The experiment
is an interesting one. Mr. Hambly
intends going in for dairying. A few
cows are now kept, besides a good
many poultry.

Mr. I'eter Millar SaBered for Tears,
ond Experimented with Many
Medicines Before Finding a Core.
From the Brockville Recorder,
. Perhaps no prettier place is to be
seen in Ontario thsn that at Newman's
upper lock on the Bideau Cauul. At
this station for a quarter of a century
resided Mr. Peter Millar, who during
that period acted in the capacity of
locksman, and was perhaps the best
known man on the canal, Mr. Millar
is now a resident of Morrlckville, having retired from active life. To a correspondent of the Recorder he related
the following experience:���"Por many
years I was troubled with a lame back,
which gave me great pain at times,
and caused me much loss of sleep. I
tried different kinds of medioines, but
found little or no relief. The spring
of 18951 was assisting at getting out
ice one day when I felt something
snap or give way in my back, and it
was some time before I could straighten
myself up. I now became so bad that
when I laid down I was unable to
rise without assistance, and I fully
made up my mind that I had become
a chronio invalid, and never expected
to see a well day again. A couple of
weeks after my back had almost en
tirely given out. I saw by an article
ia a paper tbat Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills had cured a person troubled sirai
larly, and I immediately sent and
procured a box to test them. Before I
had finished the box I found my back
somewhat stronger, so I procured five
boxes more, and by the time they were
used I found myself completely cured.
Since I took the last box I havo not
bad a pain or particle of lameness, and
ray health has been far better than it
had been for years before,
To ensure obtaining the Kcnuine
always ask for Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, as there are many pink colored
imitations. 84
