Tho proprietors of The Goi.iibk Eba
nre pleased to bo able to announce this
week that arrangements are being completed whereby considerable improvement will be made to the paper. The
constantly increasing importance of
Golden as a mining and commercial
centre of tbe rich' mineral and agricul
tural district of East Kootenay has led
tho proprietors to take this step in
order to keep the standard of the paper
up to tlie requirements of the district.
They trust also that within a short
time they will be able to increase the
size ot the paper aud add other new
features that will enable them to, make
the resources of the district more
widely known throughout tbe Eastern
and western parts of Canada, the
necessary result of all which will be to
interest capitalists in the development
of the rich country which surrounds
Iu this endeavor to bring the *istrict
moro prominently before the outside
world we ask the hearty co-operation
of the business men and residents of
East Kootenay and tbe adjoining territory. This co operation can be most
substantial ly shewn by extending increased patronage and support to this
paper and for this support Tmb Era
will at all times endeavor to shew its
appreciation by giving fair and impartial reports of all matters of local and
and general interest and by doing all
in its power te point out the possibilities of the district to the investing
Particular attention will also tie
devoted to the job printing department
and hereafter there will be no good
reason for the peop'e of this district
sending their money away to outside
points for job printing work. New
type aud stock are being prou.red and
Tub Eka will be able to turn uut neat
and up to date work, at living prices.
The management trust that the public
will extend that generous support that
is needed to muke a newspaper what it
should be -a credit to the locality.
The subscription price is hut $2.00
per annum - a' sum within the reach of
all and a sum which every resident of
the district should be willing tn contribute towards the work ef opening

exceelingly rich province.

is to be hoped that, if any changes are
to be made, some' new and cheaper
schedule of fees to be paid to the Government will be introduced. Some of
the present charges for registration
and copies of instruments are simply
outrageous and should be reduced.
Some provision shou d also be made
for giving better security and more
accurate knowledge as to tbe state of
titles to intending purchasers of mineral claims. If the Mineral Aot were
amended in these respects and in a few
other matters of detail tbe mining
laws oould well be said to be about as
near perfect as it is possible to make

Golden has now reached that stage
in her history where some organized
effort should be made to briug before
the Governine.it and ethers the urgent
needs of the distritt. In many other
towns of less size aud importance than
Goldeu they have their Boards of
Trade who, when there arises any
matter of importance affecting the
bitbiuiiHS iuterests of the place, speak
as it representative body and tbeir expressions of opiniou upon any matter
command tbat degree of attention
which could not be directed to a matter
by the individual effort of the members
of such a body.

The bus ness men of Golden, including those holding interests iu mineral
properties, could well afford te get
together occasionally and discuss matters which affect their interests aud
the interests of the locality. Such au
organization would possibly be tbe
means too of burying that nasty feeling of rivalry and jealousy which
seems to lo in the air iu this vicinity
and instead of trying to "down" one
another in every conceivable way tbe
business and mining men would learn
that the success ol their neighbors in
a new country like tbis means increased prosperity for ail (hose around

If mining or any other business is
going to make successful headway iu
East Kootenay this "doginthemanger" business must be stopped and
each must lend his assistance toward
the development of the country even if
in the first instance his neighbor or
business rival should get the first
benefit out of it either by chance or
superior business ability or tact. Thi*
Era trusts thnt the business men here
will take the hint and at once organize

The robbery of the Furt Steele mail
carried by stage between Golden and
Fort Steele during tbe latter part of
last mouth has pet-baps had tbe effect
of calling tbe attention nf the post
office authorities to the state uf affairs
existing iu East Kootenay at the present time, ll hus been said that ������ Out
of Evil, Good Shall Come" and we
sincerely trust that out of tbe unfortunate occurrence above referred to
will come a decided improvement in
the mail service between Goldeu and
I'ort Steele. Tbe people ot East Kootenuy have of late been agitating for the
re establishment of a weekly service
bet ween these points, and the Fort
8:��*.�� people have also been making repeated demands to have Fort Steele
made a money order office, bnt a deaf
ear has been turned to all their appeals
in thut direction.
The amount of mail matter (bat I*
transmitted to Fort Steele is a sufficient
excuse for the people's demand for a
weekly service and the fact that many
large money transactions are carried
on by the Fort Steele people with out*
side points Is a sufficient justification
for their demand, that a money order
office be established there in order that
the public may have some security
that their money will be safely received and transmitted.
The refusal of the government to
make Fort Steele a money order office
affords the strongest possible evidence
that the postal authorities feared the
occurrence of just suoh an event as has
happened, yet after refusing that reasonable request they omit to take even
ordinary precautions for the safe transmission of the mnils. At none of the
stopping places has there been provided
by the authorities any secure place
where the mail bags may be deposited
at night, but such it their confidence
in the honesty of the people���forsooth ���
that the mail is permitted to remain
outside tied down with a canvas and
a rope through both of whioh a person
bent on robbery can cut his way in
half a minute.
There is negligence somewhere, but
the poor devils who have to do business must assume all risks, as the
registration of a letter affords no guarantee on the part of the postal authorities as to its safe delivery.
We trust the Ottawa authorities will
now embrace the opportunity to look
thoroughly into this mail service of
East Kootenay and give the district
what it needs in the way of a weekly
service and adopt some means of securing the mails against a repetition of
what has recently occurred.

There was introduced into the Missouri Legislature two weeks ago a bill
whose object is to mitigate the evil of
overcrowding in street cars. The bill
starts out with a long^m-enmble to the
effect that a passenger who tenders the
legsl fare is entitled to a seat. This is
no doubt a good law. A passenger
riding two miles in a street car is just
as much entitled to a seat for that distance at is a transcontinental passenger on an ordinary railway. The bill
in question proceeds ou the principle
that the street car company, in not
providing a seat for the passenger,
does not fulfil its part of the contract
with the public It is therefore proposed that the passenger who has to
stand will only pay for such service as
is given him. The bill provides that
street oar companies must furnish
their conductors with commutation
tickets, aud when a person Mils to get
a seat in a car he or she must be carried for half fare, and the conductor
must give in return for the regular
fare a ticket good for another ride,
provided it is also in a crowded car.
These tickets are not to be good for
seats, bnt a passenger can havo a seat
by giving up two cf them. The companies are not to be compelled to fur
nish these tickets except when their
cart are crowded, and if they can provide seals for their passengers tliere is
no rebate, A man who gets up and
givea his seat to someone else is not
entitled to the half-fare rate, but the
person to whom he offers the seat is
compelled to take it, or, at least, to
lose the i-ebute if the stands up while
there it a vacant teat iu the oar.

From .he Cornwall Standard.
The science and art of medicine holds
a unique place in the esteem of the entire civilized world, because by a.judicious application of progressive
science relative to the art of healing
innumerable triumphs nre won in the
struggle for health. The profession of
medicine we may safely sny, is no
sinecure, its triumphs and successes
are rehearsed daily by the million.
Those who ure iu the vanguard of this
movement are our gi-eatesi benefactors.
Their discoveries are a boon to humanity ; thev have, gi veu relief to thousands who would have dragged out a
miserable and more or less brief existence Dr. Williams by means of his
Pink Pills bus earned and enjoys the
gratitude of untold numbers who were
on the verge of isolation or death, because their case defied the skill of the
ordinary medical practioner. The
ruthless hand of nature permits only
the survival of the strongest, but the
tender ministrations of medical science
as exemplified iu Dr. William's Pink
Pills, secure the survival of the weakest, which is in harmony with the
divine injunction, * We then that
are strong ought to bear the iiiliriuii-
ies of the weak aud uut please ourselves."

The directors of the Oolden Gate
Mining Company, of the Lake of the
Woods distriot has declared a dividend
of 60 per cent on the paid up stock.
This is the first of the more recently
organised companies to pay.a dividend
and,its success will doubtless encourage mining iu the Lake of the Woods.

worth of stock has been sold. The
profit was not made in actual milling,
but in the development and sale of u
A recent issue of the Engineering
and Mining Journal gives the names
of 30 raining companies that have paid
dividends aggregating about one hundred million., of dollars, uud points out
that there are many other dividend
companies iu North America who decline to give out any information as to
the amount named in dividends. It is
quite evident therefore that mining is
a paying business. We believe the
day is not far,distant when British
Columbia mines will be paying divid
ends that will surprise the world.
Messrs Geo. and H. B. Alexander
whc have large interests iu Golden and

Sampling purposes aud some .days ago
paid out tbe sum of (14,000 iu one
cheque for ore. The Messrs Alexander
are euttrprising men and everyone will
wish them uubouuded success in their
Slocan venture.
The latest report from the west is to
the effect tbat tie new smelter to
handle Trail Creek ore may lie erected
at or within six miles of Spokane, instead of at Northport. The reason for
the alleged alteration of plans is that
the men behind the scheme belong
chiefly to Spokane, and wish to advance that town's interests, and another objection to Northport is said to
be that the United States Government
sampling works are to be built at the
Utter place. It is understood also
that the promoters consider that Spokane, being a railway centre, favorable
rates for the transportation of ore may
be more easily obtained if the reduction works era erected there.
The statement is made that the company will vurohuse for ul-out 1(1,000
the machinery and plant of the o.d
smelter concern, which, in the past,
has sunk 1*10,000 iu ti unsuccessful

The Loud bill isn't troubling the
average country publisher to any extent. It's the unpaid subscription bill
that's wrinkling his face and whitening his hair.
An experienced publisher never worries because a man is aisatisfled with

knows that the * n-agraph which offends one person will in all likelihood
please twenty.
One of the men from the lumber

days without the option of a fine.
This is not the first occurrence of the
kind fn Golden nnd the Justices nre
to be commended for adequately punishing him for his offence against
order nnd decency and it is to be hoped
thst the lesson thus tnnght him will
serve as an object lesson to others who
may think they can do thst sort ol
thing with impunity.

With ths Undertakers.
St. John, N. B��� Feb. 4.-The preliminary proceedings in a peculiar legal
case are being conducted here, the issue
at stake being a bill for undertaker's
services at the funeral - of the Right
Hon. Sir John Thompson, Premier of
Canada. The original bill was for
$12,094, and was presented to the Federal Government by Gordon A Keith,
of Halifax, soon after tbe funeral in
December, 181)4. The Government refused to pay the full amount on the
ground that thecharges wereexcessive
and remitted $7,21111 to the firm. Messrs
Gordon A Keith demanded the full
amount of the bill and later brought
suit against Her Majesty the Queen iu
the Exchequer Court of Canada.
The ca^e will be brought to trial
after a commission whicli is now securing evidence hns reported. The
commission is visiting many of the
leading cities for the purpose of having
the bill submitted to undertakers for
their estimate on the cost of articles
furnished at the funeral, and value of
services rendered.
The commission is now in this city
and, according to the undertakers who
have examined the'bill, itis about 50
per ceut iu excess of what it should be.
