The Golden Lumber Company had
tn immense pile of logs at McLaugh-
lan's camps to float down tbe river for
cutting thit season at the mill. Some
idea may be obtained of the quantity
from the fact that the log pile was
about a mile long and nearly 30 feet in
hei-jiit. Tbe company had a photo
taken by Martell Bros., showing the
logs with the men grouped about the
pile, tbt genial manager, Mr. Carlin,

SATURDAY, MAY, 22 1897.
It is understood thai Mr. Wolls, of
Palliser, will be the Liberal candidate
for East Kootenay in the provincial
elections to b��i held next year.
Some effort ought to be made to
have the smelting works at Golden put
in operation. With tho East Kootenay, Iilecillewaet and Ottertail mines
in ths vicinity there is no reason why
the smelter should not liu successfully
operated. This is a matter that mi^lrt
well receive the attention of the newly
elected town board,
Under its new management the
Golden Era will be enlarged and improved. It will probably take about
three weeks beforo tho necessary
changes can be effected us part of the
plant obtained lor these alterations has
by some mischance heen forwarded up
the river to Fort Steele. No effort will
be spared on our part to make the Eua
a success and a boon to the district,
and we hopa to have and deserve tho
support of mining men and tho public
generally in our enterprise.
A matter that should have the attention of the Dominion Government
ia the dyking of the sloughs which
flood the farm lauds ou the noi-th side
of Golden. Tho cost would not be
great and the work would be an immense boon to the farmers, one of
whom informs us that owing to floods
he has not been able to save one crop
in five. The Dominion Government
sold these lands to the farmers, and
the same Government is the authority
over the Columbia river. We recently
represented tbe matter to Mr. Bostock,
M. P,, who replied: "I will make the
enquiries you ask and endeavor to get
the Government to agree to doing tbis
work." A meeting of farmers is palled
for Wednesday evening next to draft
a petition and to support Mr. Bostock
in his efforts to have the work carried out.
The Other .tide
One side of a story mav appear all
right till tht other eidt is told, Mr.
Rat took advantagtof the lust issuk of
the EnA under hit -Soutrol to give his' aSl\,\ he had not got one, tlthougb ht
vertion. Here it mine. In January wa�� liablt.- to heavy penalties by fine
last,   on the occasion of my being in ���nd   imprisonment for not producing
ooming its purchaser.   Mr.   Bostock
subsequently intimated  that   he wat
inter   ted  in  tbe Golden Era, and
that  aa be was anxious to see it improved and made a help to tbe advancement of the district in which it was published, an arrangement might be male
about that.   He then showed  me  a
copy ol the paper and I replied that I
did not caro to be connected  with  a
district, that ran such a wretched production.    Mr. Bostock assured me   it
was not, the fault of tbe district and
spoke most highly of Golden and its
pooplo.   I saw Mr, Bostock at Rovel-
stoko the following month,  when  the
matter was again discussed and, as he
would be in Ottawa, he informed me
that Mr. Deane, of Kamloops, would
set as his agent in hit absence,   Hearing in West Kootenay high  accounts
of Golden, and from other information,
I determined to make an offer for the
Eva.   My proposal was accepted bv
Mr, Bostock and tbe agreement was
It-awn a'id exetuted,   In justice to Mr.
Bostor-lt I must ssy that every precau-
tiorj \- a taken on lus behalf to protect J
Mr, Rao's interests, and I promised to
give  bim the option of remaining in
i~'iar(~e   of   the printing office.   This
oder I ni.ile to Mr. Rae, wbo received
me witli the utmost courtesy and kindness,  aiio.ved mo the books, Arc, and
told nie that as he had been unable to
run   the   paper stitisfactcrily he had
���i/'ked Mr. Bostock to mako some other I
nrrjuif-enit'iK,   the   acceptance of  my
offer being no doubt the Msult.  It was
after the agreement with me had been
completed t'-at Mr. Rao made the offer
to   Mr.  Bostock   (as president of the
company)   which   ha refers to in his
letter.    Of course as   an   honourablo!
man  Mr. Bostock could not repudiate
the  agreement  ho had already made
with me, and Mr. Rae'scodeof honor,
which son-rat otherwise, must be borrowed from some new version of business   scripture   compiled perhaps   by
some lawyer wbo may be versed, like
Murk   Twain's   Heathen   Chinese, in
"ways that are dark and tricks that
are   vain."    An assurance was given
Mr, Rue by Mr. Bostock's agent that
his  interests would be protected.   It
wns  about  this   time that Mr. Rae
asked me if I would assume the liabilities   of  tbe company.   As that was
contrary to my agreement I told Mr.
Rae   I could not do to, but that if he
obtained an order I would pay towards
those   liabilities the moneys I had to
pny to the company till the liabilities
were liquidated.   Mr. Rae then refused
to give me possession as instructed.   I
next mp.de Mr. Bostock a purely business offer to purchase his shares in the
company.   He  refused  my offer  but
made a counter offer, which I nccepted.
The  deed  of transfer was signed by
both parties.   On the arrangement be-
in; made I asked Mr. Rae to produce
thn stock register of the company that
tbe transfer might be recorded, but he
Rae at I, dtre not do w.hat I have done
without full and proper authority.
As  to putting the lock on the door
of the company's office, I hnd -a  right
to   pat  on  as many locks as I chose,
Mr. Rae seems to   glory in  the   fitct
that  be put my books and papers outside, and when I went to tha oliiee on
Monday I found tbem  there   and   the
door locked against ine.    I endeavored
to bear with   Mr. Rao as much as possible,  though  when insult ie added to
injury it  is  apt to make one assert
one's rights to the full extent.    Since
I have been in possession of the premises as managing   director   of  the
company I have not retaliated against
Mr. Rae In his own coin,   but ha. s allowed, nnd shall allow, hi. books and
papers to remain iijjc.i"- till he wants
them   and,   furl her,   trust! -^    hat I
kpow   the common courtesy due from
one man to another, he  will   find the
door open to bim at any time when I
am  in the office, and no- only shall I
give  him all the information in my
power that he msy want, but  T   shall
give him any a-tsistanco I reasonably
can   in  the   itir-v  printing office and
paper which he i/, establishing,   That
Mr.  Rae bus not shown his manners
to be of the best is   probably not   his
fault, nmi that mtiy be one reason why
he hr.g   asked   tot-  tire  publii '��� sympathy.
Aa to the action as-airst the company which Mr, Use says he nnd Mr.
Harrison took, I wish to say thit:
Mr. Rae has ���iersis...jiitlj refused to
givo ne any infornfati ������-> or particulars
regarding these claims; ho had no
authority from directoi.i o.* shareholders io incur such cl-iiius; he attempted to havo .ho v.i'ts issued on '
liinist'lf and1 exectiUbti obtained od th.
company's property bckto -Ito shareholders cpnld be called together and
arrange to havo v.hiite-icr liabilities
wire due liquidated in. a proper manner; and be forced me to take steps to
instruct my solicitors to defend the
actions and to take but writs of injunction against him. Whatever is
lawfully due by tha company will be
paid as soon as tha statutory provisions can be complied with, and I undertook to combine my votes with Mr.

I am not aware that the people ol
Golden set themselvts up ns a charitable aid society that' Mr. Rue should
claim their sympathy���the last appeal
of a disappointed, man. If Mr. Rae
does no more for bis new paper than
he did during the years he has been
running tha Eiu 'ho won't deserve
muoh sympathy or anything else.
There is a lot of truth in the remark
made by a mining man at the Kootenay Houso the other night:    "If the
d    paper   had   been    across  the
boundary the whole concern would
have been put in the Kicking Horse
long ago."
Mr. Hue's concluding sentence, "if
Mr. Haggen ever does got hold of this
outfit tbs question uf ������-.iateucs will resolve itself into a sorious question
witb him betore be is muoh older," is
so much like tbo boast of-the braggart
that I pi-j*?~: not to notice it further.
There ai-e othtrr issues, but theBe I
shall not U-oubln tbo readers cf the
Era with i' present.
In conclusion I bave to say to the
people of .Golden that I don't want
sympathy merely but what support
may be given ma I hope to merit as a
return for tbo services which I expect
to render to the development of Golden
in piirtictiln-r and to East Kootenay as
a whore.
In fairness to" Mv. Rae I offered to
send hiin the proof of this letter that
'"���j        his reply might appear with   it,   but
this offer he declined.

Death of J. A. Hood
The town and district were thrown
into gloom on Monday afternoon by
the report that Mr. John Ogilvie
Hood, brother of Mrs. Jas. Henderson,
had been tbe victim of a fatal accident.
It appears that about 4 o'clock he went
to get in his cows and was riding his
borse acrose the slough behind the
Oolden Lumber Company's mill. How
the accident happened is not definitely
known, but is supposed that the horse
stumbled into a hole and that the deceased was thrown into the water and
drowned before help could reach bim.
The body was recovered shortly afterwards and waa taken to tbe hospital,
but as no inquest wss deemed necessary by the coroner the remains were
eubseqnently taken to Mr. James Henderson's (residence. Deceased arrived'
in Golden three years ago, having
come from Forfar, Scotland, where he
leaves a mother and three sisters to
lament hit lose. Deceased was 26
yeara of age at tbe time of bit death,
and had been working with Mr. James
Henderson since hit arrival here. He
endeared himself to many by hie genuine course of life and sterling integrity.
The local lodge of Oddfellows, of
which deceased wat a deservedly popular member, arranged the funeral ob
teqnlet in a handsome manner. We
tender onr heartfelt sympathy and
that of the people of Golden to Mr.
and Mrt. Hendereon and to tbe friende
of tbe deceased in their irreparable
The funeral of the late J. 0. Hood
took place on Tuesday, 18th inst. The
general sympathy aroused by the sad
accident waa shown by the respect of
all who were present on the very
solemn occasion, when there was a
large attendance of the local Oddfellows. The service at the house was
conducted by Rev. Jamea Harcourt,
wbo ia in charge of the Presbyterian
congregation here (of which deceased
wat a member), and wat of a very
aolemn and touching character, reference being made to the euddenneta of
the calamity which bad befallen the
friendt of the deceased. At the close
of the service the Oddfellows and
friends joined in einging "Nearer My
God to Thee.'' Many friendt accompanied the procession to the grave,
where a very solemn service wat conducted by Rev. G. H. Osborne (Chaplain of the local lodge), all tbe members of the I. 0. 0. .'. rrMtine- a sprig
of evergreen into tbe grave. The tinging of "Abide Witli Me" seemed to
touch the hearta of all who were present. A sincere prayer for God's blessing to rest npon tbe friendt who were
left behind brought to a close the most
solemn service that we luve yet wit*
netted in Goldtn.
A meeting of farmert resident on the
north side of Golden is convened by
Mr. Haggen for Wednesday next, May
26th, at the Queen's hotel, to draw up
a petition to the Dominion Government
asking that tbe sloughs, which at tbe
present time cause the flooding of the
farm lands, should be dyked. It It to
be hoped there will be a good attend-
anon so that the petition may be at
complete as possible and so strengthen
the hands of Mr. Bostock, M. P., in
bis efforts to bave the work undertaken by the Dominion Government.

be similarly suffering, I asked permission to make them known, which was
readily granted. The young lady is
Mitt H. M. Gonyou, a general favorite
among her acquaintances, and it it
thought that her trouble, at is not infrequently the case, wat brought on by
hard ttudy in school." Miss Gonyou
gave the following statement: "All
through the fall of 18941 had been
feeling unwell. I did not tpeak to anyone about it, for I was going'to school
and wat afraid if I taid anything
about it to my parent! they would
keep me at home. I kept getting worse
and at latt grew ao nervoua that I
could not bold my pencil. My right
tide wat affected mott, though the
trouble teemed to go through my
whole system. In January I wat to
bad that I had to ditcontinue going to
school, and I wat constantly growing
worse. I could not use my handt because I would let everything drop, and
frequently when I attempted te walk I
would fall, My brother had been ailing for a long time and was then using
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and getting
better, to I thought at they were helping him so much tbey would be a good
medloine for me. Before the first box
wat done I waa feeling much better,
and aftei using the Pink Pills for
about a month my health wat fully
restored. It is now more than a year
since I ditcontinued the use of tbe
pills and I have not had the slightest
trace of the malady since. I am satisfied Dr. William:,' Pink Pills tuved me
from a life of misery, and I would
strongly recommend them for nervout
Dr. Williams.' Pink Pills ereate new
blood, build up the nervet, nnd thut
drive disease from the system. In
hundreds of cases they have cured
after all other medioinet had failed,
thus establishing the claim that they
are a marvel among the triumphs of
modern medical science. The genuine
Pink Pillt are sold only in boxes, bearing the full trade mark, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People."
Protect yourself from imposition by
refusing any pill tbat does not bear
