A Very Lively Time
A Well Known Reildent hai his Bar
K.arly Ont Off
On Sunday night aome of the Don
aid young men set out to celebrate
Hallowe'en. They went to a Chinaman's
house, smsshed in the door, knocked
the Chinaman down stole his watch
and a ten-dollar bill. Pat Murphy
who was formerly a hotel-keeper in
Donald, and well-known there, was
walking along the railway track when
he was hit by. something and knocked
insensible. He declares he was shot.
The effect was to tear away his ear
which was nearly severed from his
head, and when he was found on the
track Dr. Proctor was called in and
dressed the wound, Murphy being
subsequently removed to the Golden
Hospital. The probability is that in
the melee that took place stones were
flying about and that it was a sharp
stone tired at Murphy's lamp that did
the mischief.
The Chinaman laid informations
against A. Clark and D. Jameson for
smashing in his house, and against A.
Clark, D. Jameson and R, Norris for
assaulting and robbing him,
On Tuesday morning A Clark and
D. Jameson were brought before Mr.
Griffith, S. M. on a charge of breaking
the windows and doors of the China-
man'a premises. Two Chinamen
swore tb the committsl of the offence
by tbe accused. On Hia Worship asking them whether they wished to
make any atatement or oall evidence,
Jameaon re-died they did not and they
were thereupon fined CIO and costs.
A. Clark, D. Jameson and R. Norris
were then charged with having assaulted the Chinaman and robbed him
of $10 His Worship remanded the
cue till Thursday, so that it might
be heard before Judge Forln, accused
being admitted to bail in $100 each.
On the case being called at the
County Court yesterday, Mr. Spragge
appeared for the accused and as he
stated lhat in the event of a commital
he would elect that the cases should
go to Ihe next assizes, the Magistrate's
Court was then constituted, and before Judge Forin and Mr. Griffith, S.
M., A.Clark, D. Jameson, and R. Norris were charged with assaulting and
robhii g the Chinaman.
The case sgainst Clark was taken
Brat. The Chinaman was examined
by Mr. Spragge and said he waa sure
it was half-past ten when the affair
occurred. Mr. Spragge then called
Mrs. Greatrix, Miss McDonald, 0.
Clark, W. Lynns and tbe accused, the
whole of the witnesses stating that
accused came home shortly after 9
o'clock and had not been out again all
In the caae against Norris, Mr.
Spragge called J. S Waddell, F. A.
Hansen and J. Plckerton. the evidence
being that he went upstairs to bed
about halfpast nine and did not again
come downstairs.
In tbe case against Jameson, T.
Forrest stated accused waa in his
hotel at the time the affair took place
and witness remarked to him that
there must bs a lot of drunks in the
street that night. T. Rawlin.employ-
ed at Forrest House, gave, however,
different evidence, stating he saw accused go upstairs to bed a little after
���(o'clock. Witness waa in the reading
loom all evening and did not see him
sgain. Would have seen him had he
bean about there.
Mr. Spragge aaid that two of these
defendanta were fined aa they did not
understand they had the right to call
evidence. He asked the case bs re*
His Worship said he had askedJaine-
son If tbev had any evidence to call
and be replied "no." He understood
Jameson spoke for the rest. The case
oould not be re-heard.
Mr. Spragge said in that ease ther
must havt it re-heard by appeal as
tbey oould not allow the stigma to
Judge Forin said he had beard
of these esses before he came tbere.
The citizena of Donald, particularly
the C. P. R. men, should combine together and endeavor to root out this
rowdyism. He had beard that a man
named Murphy had been badly maltreated and had hia ear cat. They did
not want their town to get the name
of being a place where old men were
wantonly assaulted. While the prosecution had failed In the face of the
evidence the com tmuat lorm its opinion on tbat evidence. There waa a
conflict between the evidence of Mr.
Forrest and that ol the other man
with r. ference to Jameson'a movements at the Forrest House, and a few
of theee things would not stand the
strlo'est examination. This affair
occurred between the Nelles and Forest
Houses and would be over in a few
moment's. The most startling thing
about It waa that this affair should
hava barn going on on 8u.day night
when every bar In the place was sup
posed to be closed.   He had the ,.o>.
to cancel any license in East or We
Kootenay    on   the  first inforraatio
being laid against them as to their respectability,   and   he  did   not think
Sunday observers should be disturbed
by this row iyism.   Tney had a S n
day   law and if the they did not kee|
closed he hoped  Mr.   Griffith would
notlfly him,
Mr. Griffith:    I have given  them
Judge Forin said this thing wa
done on hallowe'en night when all tin
devils were supposed to be about, and
be hoped thin affair would be a lesson
to the people of Donald, or thev would
have the name of being a tough place.
He knew they were not and he wished
to give them to understand that a continuance of this sort of thing should
not be tolerated. So far as the accused was concerned these charges were

The World.Li. Dell Company.
We remind our readers of the splen
did entertainment to be given at the
Alexander Hall. Golden, on Tuesday
night, by the talented ladies, Miss
World and Miss La Dell. As showing
how highly their entertainment has
been appreciated in other places we
quote the following:���
Brandon Times: ��� "No concert
that the people of this city have
had an opportunity of attending
in recent yearn was more worthy of
support than the one given by Miss
World and Miss La Dell on Thursday
evening. The ladies in their respective lines are certainly charming entertainers, and it is unfortunate that
tbey were not greeted by a large audience. It is also to be regretted that
many people who would certainly
have onjoved the fine programme
should have allowed the opportunity
to puss���they missed o treat, an enjoyable evening's entertainment. Miss
World has a remarkable voice���strong
sweet and clear. She sings songs of
tbe heroic order, grand, soul stirring
pieces, and though suffering from a
severe cold contracted several weeks
jjjigo, slid sang them as sweetly as they
possibly could have been sung and
with a clearness of expression seldom
equalled on a Brandon stage. ''Sing
On," was a beautiful number, and por*
Imps Miss World's best effort. Iu
"The Harp that Once. Thro' Tura's
Halls," there was ample scope for the
powerful voice, and the old Irish melody rang out with bewitching sweet
ness. Miss World is certainly a great
singer. Miss Marietta La Dell has
appeared here before. She is an elocutionist of great ability, with all the
juvenile simplicity of Jessie Alexander
in her well selected children's pieces,
and possessing the dramatic power of
Agnes Knox in the heavier number-.
'���The Captive,"wa8 beautifully rendered. In "Our Christmas." Miss La
Dell captivated the audience, Her
other pieces were equally well given,"
The Lethbridge News says: The entertainment given on Monday evening
by Miss Frances World and Miss Marietta La Dell, the "Concert Stars," was
undoubtedly the best thing in that line
the people of Lethbridge have had tha
pleasure of hearing for some long time.
The programme for the evening, con*
taining 11 numbers, was considerably extended by the repeated encores demanded by the audience and complied
with by the performers. Miss World
haa a very powerful voice, of good timbre, under complete command, combined with very distinct articulation, and
her rendering of the diffeieut pieces
delighted the large audience present.
Miss La Dell, elocutionist, or "interpreter of literature," is an adept in her
art, and her presentation of the
different numbers on the programme,
particularly "The Chariot Race,"
"The Stately Minuet" and "The Dead
Kitten," left littlo to be* desired. Her
posing, portraying the different
passions snd emotions, was also excellent and worthy of Iier reputation."

Mr. Ernest Grant-Govan, of the
Gold Fields of British Columbia, is already arranging for the issue of the
prospectus of another company, which
with the title of the Tangier Mine,
limited, and a capital ol ��1*20,000, is
to acquire the property of the tame
name situated at Albert Canyon and
adjoining the Waverley.
The Kootenay Mail says of tho Tangier mine, near Albert Canyon, and
owned by Tho Goldfiilds of British
Columbia: "A series of assays as
work was done gave an average of 2-f>
oz. gold, 14(1 ozs. silver, KU per cent
lead and 2J per cent copper. The iron
pyrites go about $33 44 per ton in
gold. This is from the solid portion
of the vein."
An  Important tlt.eovery
A Oolden Entertainment.
An entertainment was held on Friday at the Presbyterian church in aid
of the building fund and resulted in
the sum of 188.50 being realized. Mr.
Smith presided. The following programme was presented: Address by
Percy Lake, piano selection by Mrs.
Mercier, two trios by Messrs. Plow-
right, King and Harcourt. a capital
recitation by Gertie Fields, two violin
solos by T. J. Barron, of Donald,
whose excellent selections were heartily encored; reading by J. jV. Bates,
solo by R. A. King; recitation by
Katie Rutherford; a prettily rendered
solo by Martha Woodley, Mrs. Rae
accompanying; quartette by Messrs.
Plowright, King, Linden and Haroourt; aong by Percy Lake; addresses
by Messrs. R. A. King and Harcourt;
solo by J. Harcourt. During the entertainment refreshments were passed
around, the following having kindly
contributed to this part of the entertainment: Mosdames Sutherland.
Love, Harison, Dainard, Pratt, Brock.
Fields, Rutherford, Brown. Henderson, Lake, Misses Sutherland and
Holt and Dr. Taylor. The ohurch
was crowded. Mr. Harcourt thanked
the audience for their assistance.
During the evening Mrs. Morcicr
kindly presided at the piano.
Mr. J. H. Susmann, tlie C. P. R
minim; expert, has in hand the con
stinction of a smelter at Robson. No
better man than Mr. Susiniinu could be
selected for this work, and while it. is
in his hands, the mine owners may depend on the C. P, R. smelling business being conducted with tho greatest
ability, and thai their interests will
receive the most straightforward consideration.
Mr. Moldenhauer, forcmsn for the
Koott-nuy Consolidated, came in from
the Bennison Basin on Sunday, He
reports having struck n vein of galena
on the 1000 feet level of the Bennison.
This vein wus struck at a
point sivty-two fret from the
mouth of the tunnel and widened out
as the work proceeded. Messrs Blake
and Smith succeeded in gating in sup-
plies for the winter camp.
The Fort Steele Prosperrlov snys
that one of tlio finest leads yet discovered in the locality has been unearthed
on the Sullivan group. J. McDonald.
who is in charge, went down through
a somewhat heavy iron cupping and
struck a body of soft carbonates about
two feet wide on tlie Hope claim. He
made an open cut remeving the capping from tho vein for a distance of 14
feet. Tho carbonates went down about
18 inches when a streak of solid galena
two feet thick was found underlying
them. The galena was found to he of
uniform thickness along tlie 14 feet
uncovered, and of a very line steely
grain. Further on the vein widened to
ten feet.
Tho rails on the' Crow's Nest Puss
Railway are laid west to the crossing
nf Pincher Creek ut LeGrnndciir's,
about 2-' miles from Macleod. The
permanent bridge, with cement piers,
is being put in there. There is u clear
run then to the South Fork, and after
that river is crossed, thero is practi-
cally little difficulty, so fur as bridges
arc concerned. The road bed from the
end of the truck to the lake is about
ready for the rails. The rails are now
laid from the 16 mine coulee east to

A party at Omenirn, with the help
of a kiootchman, munuged after a
hard trip, to find the creek where the
gold crane from that was recently
(omul with llie bodies of Hathaway
mid Robertson at Omenica. They
found tools and the remains of Hath-
uwuy nud liobirrtson's work. They
prospected tlie ground nnd found prospects sufficiently rich to induce them
to stake off claims for all those interested. Samples of gold brought back
are the purest Captain Bluck has seen
u British Columbia.
After return, from notes and enquiries made from Sichiuee Indians
the conclusion was arrived at that an
easy trail ..ouid be made into the creel;;
and Grant and Goodall, both having
spent lust winter on Mnnsoii Creok, d��-
cided to spend this winter on the new
creek (which it was decided to namo
in honor of Hathaway and Robertson
who lout their lives there.) Grant es-
timates that he can make from $3 to
SS per day rocking, They procured
tools and supplies enough to do them
till next July; they cut a trail from
where Captain Black supposed it
could be made, and they have taken
horses iu from Stewart's Lake with
their supplies. They are well provided for, and Grant, being nn old timer,
hy next summer will be able to know
more about this creek.
When the news spread of the discovery, word was sent to all the prospectors in the district���who could be
reached -and an old time rush ensued,
reminding the old timers of the Cassiar
rush on a small scale. A number of
claims have been staked aud recorded
since. All came back with samplea

When wo first suggested that the
best inland route to the Yukou would
be cot by way of the Columbia Valley.
Canoe River, and Tete Jaune Cache,
Parsnip, Fiodlay and Liard rivers, the
Revelstoke Herald cviden'ly thought
it was some visionary proposal and
chaftingly described it as "the Golden
Era air line." Onr contemporary has
evidently repented. The Herald has
followed onr footsteps in obtaining information regarding this route, and
has come to the conclusion that we
havo been right all along with the
exception that the Herald thinks the
"Golden Era air line" ought to start
from Revelstoke and go thence up the
Columbia River coming in at the same
point on Canoe River as the road that
we propose from Donald and Golden.
We don't grudge the Herald its discovery but congratulate it on having
the fairness to acknowledge that 'he
route that we have been advocating is
the best one. We admit that there
is a practicable route from
Revelstoke to the same point
as advocated by the Eua. We also
admit that there aro practicable routes
from Edmonton, Kamloops, Ashcroft.
Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, and San
Fronoiaco. What wo say, however,
is that the route (rom Donald and
Golden has many advantages above
them all. as it lies along the great valley of the western base of the Rocky
Mountains, which valley, broken
only in two or three places by
low saddles, is a direct and natural
highway, not only to the Yukon, hut
to the rich country of the Peace River
and Omenica on its way, Wo advocate a road which the highest engineering authorities tell us is practically
level for 600 miles of its course, over
which a road or railway oan easily be
built with the least natural obstacles���
a natural highway in fact. We ask
that this road be investigated by the
Dominion Government Engineers before any other road is adopted. We
believe from all we have learned about
it that it is the best, most easily constructed, and shortost Canadian route
to the Yukon that has yet been suggested. The position of the routes
seems to be this. The Kamloops, Donald and Golden, Revelstoke and Edmonton-Yellowhead routes all have
Tete Jaune Cache as the common
point. The northern latitude of tbe
C, P. R. line in the Upper Columbia
Valley makes Donald the nearest railway point to Tete Jaune Cache, with
the best country (or access. A lot
has been said about the Edmonton
route. We don't want to injure it if
it is what it is claimed to be, bnt ths
Hamilton disaster has given it a black
eye and several have returned complaining bitterly against the oruel
misrepresentation in regard to that
route. The following telegram baa
been going the rounds o( the press
in regard to it: "Duluth, Minn., Oot.
26th.���W. A. Foote, of Duluth. who

We congratulate tho C. F, R, on
the steps they have just taken to pie-
vent recurrence of accidents by failure
of air brakes, Testing machines will
be placed at each making up station
and the air brakes thoroughly tested
before each train goes out. With reference to the extension of the air
brake system the Toronto Star says:
"In (aot so thoroughly has the Canadian Pacific entered upon a scheme to
equip every particle of their rolling
stock, even to flat and stock cars,
with the improved Weitinghouse air
brake, that a plan is now under the
consideration of the departmental
heads and the Westinghouse Air Brake
Company of Philadelphia to establish
a Canadian branoh of their works in
some of the Canadian Pacific repair
shops���probably Toronto Junction or
Perth���and construct under royalty
all the air brakes used by the Canadian Pacific, from the Pacific to the
Eastern Seaboard." The company is
evidently determined to show that the
safety of the public will be a first
factor in its policy of administration.
They have a magistrate at Barrie,
Ont. who is a disgrace to the bench
and ought to be removed forthwith.
He sent a well known and . highly esteemed farmer, named John Belts, ot
Staynor, to gaol (or refusing to pay a
olaim made on him over a fruit-tree
swindle, and which he rightly refused
to pay. Imprisonment (or debt Is no
part of the system of any civilived
country, and the magistrate who
seeks to give effect, to suoh tyranny by
calling it contempt of court, as in this
case, is no better than a sneak-thief.
That magistrate ought to have four-
teen days on bread and water (or so
grossly abusing the power placed in
his hands.
���-The Golden Era Air Line"
The Hamilton Times remarks: "Two
years ago Ogilvie, the flour mill man,
was busy trying to make the people believe that grit rule meant rain to
the Northwest, He hae jnst returned
(rom a trip through that part o( the
country and is delighted with what
he saw. "It was truly wonderful,"
exclaimed he to an interviewer.1-everything up there seemed to be improved,
and I don't believe I ever saw general
business look so solid and prosperous
as I did on this trip." Thus one by
one the tory prophets of evil confess
that they prophesied (alsly."
There will be a groat rush from England to Klondike in tho spring. It is
estimated that 100,000 people have already decided to leave England for the
goldfields. Cook's Tourist agency have
already booked 12,000 and haveentered
into a contract with the proprietors of
the Driard Hotel, Victoria, to provide
for 2,000 people in the first week in
January on their way to the goldfields.
In view of the importance of these
goldfields and the rush of people it is
most important that the Government
of British Columbia should take steps
to have the Omenica, Cassiar and
Peace River districts opened for settlement, for the rush will undoubtedly
extend south nnd the Province ought
to lie able to take the best advantage
of it by having the opening ot her
goldfields extended. A road up the Col
umbra valley mid Canoe River to Tete
Cache and along tbe Paranip, Findlay
Black, and Liard rivers would open up
the inland gold districts of Britiah
Columbia rich, w the hoad waters ot
the Yukon. -
In the Klondike Oold Fields.
Seattle, October 28.���A Dawson
city letter says: "Tbe spectacle of men
picking np gold in baskets is strange,
but no less true. Another strike bas
been made. The camp ts on fire with
excitement. In the last 24 hours
nearly 400 bench claims have beon
staked out on a side hill in Shookeem
gulch. In halt n day, Friday, a (oot
below the surface, two men with a
rocker picked out $685 in gold. Two
nuggets valued at 147 and $25 respectively, where found, and hundreds of
others, worth from three to $20 were
taken out of the side hills. Thousands
in the last year have walked over the
ground and no one suspected its rich,
ness, Boulders were turned over and
there lying exposed to the light of day
were the nuggets scattered in the
gravel. The moss is about 12 inches
thick and beneath it two men picked
up $800 in coarse gold."
The late Henry George, whose death
has been reported us he was on the
eve of fighting tbe Tammany ring in
New York, was a man who may be
classed as ono of the keenest thinkers
of this century. His works have an
immense influence over the civilized
world, Their study created thinkers
among the working classes, and the
disciples of George today must be
numbered in many millions. The
advanced legislation of the Australian
Colonies in social scieuce is largly die
to the widespread circulation of his
works. George was a man who has
done more than most reformers to elevate tbe maaaes, and thereby to make
for purity of the government of an
nation. Though he ia dead his voice
still speaketh through his writiugs
and the work which he began will go
on till mauy uf the sentiments he espoused become rooted In the principles
governing the nations.
The World says that "Hon. Mr.
Tarte, as Minister of Publio Works
(or the Dominion, proposes next set
sion to nsk Parliament (or * large vote
(or the purpose o( extending the Gov.
ernment telegraph lines in the North
west and British Columbia. It is
quite probable that so (ar as this Province is ooncerned tho Local Govern
ment will act in conjunction with the
Federal authorities in grantiug assist
anos upon suoh conditions ss may he
jointly agreed upon.'' We have ihe
best authority for stating that ono of
the first telegraph lines to bo put in
hand will be that between Golden nnd
Fort Steele.

West Sheffield, Que., it can do for any
Sufferer From the Somo Cause.
"I had been suffering from acute heart
trouble for over four years. When doctors
had tried, anil failed to give mo relief, I procured Dr. Agnew's Cure for the Heart. In HO
minutes alter tbe first dote I had relief, and
although mine was a ease of long standing,
eight bottles effected a permauent cure, anil
I firmly believe, after knowing what It hoi
done for me, that thero is no hopeless cote
while Ihis great cure is to be hail. I cheerfully sanction ths me of my testimony in
wbi.tover way it msy do the most good."

The Revelstoke Herald says: Spokane is a nice place. It is also an
ambitious one. Just at present it is
profoundly imbued with the idea that
If It oould only have railway connection with Kamloops it oould establish
ItseK as a basis of supplies (or Klondyke by the overland route. Railway
connection is easily established���on a
map. Bnt without going into the
question of the likelihood or otherwise
of Spokane becoming a basis ol
supplies either with or without railway connection with Kamloops, the
Herald would like to point out that
what is believed to be a perfectly
feasible tine of route exists (rom Revelstoke, whioh already has rail and
water connection with Spokane ud
other points In Wsshington and the
Western States generally, to Nelson
Rlvsr. The objective point o( all overland routes, whether stsrting Irom
Edmonton, Kamloops, Ashcroft or
any other inland point, This Une
would run by the Columbia and Canoe
River as (ar as Tete Jaune Cache,
passing all the way through a district
known to be rich in surface indications
of mineral wealth and opening up
near Tete Jaune Cache a most extensive deposit of mica. In the Yellow
Head Pass which runs from Tete
Jaune Cache to Jasper House in
Alberta large deposits of low grade
gold bearing quartz are also known to
exist. Tbe pack trail is stated to
pass over reef after reel of thie for two
days of the trip. Through this pass
again lies the natural outlet ol the
agricultural products of the rich and
fertile Edmonton distriot and Saskatchewan valley to its market in Kootenay. Beyond Tete Jaune Cache the
route to the Yukon would run along
the Valleys of the Fraser and Parsnip
rivers to Peace River and then acroas
to the Nelson and down tbat river
to its junction with the Liard. The
Liard and Pally rise almost in tbe
same lake, and the Pelly is navigable
almost from its source to Dawson City
This route is not recommended to Mr,
W. A. Foote, of Duluth or any other
tenderfoot to tackle next spring. It
will require a considerable amount of
opening up. But so will any other
either from Kamloops or Ashcroft
or any other point on the C. P. R.
The advantage to those that open it up
will be that for the first part of its
course as far as Tete Jaune Cache
the returns will bs immediate, as by
it what according to all accounts is
one of the richest mineral districts In
British Columbia will be developed
from tho very start off. The company
that will run a light railway through
thia part of the ronte would  find  the
venture pay even if the gold ot Klondike) had never been unearthed Irom ita
native muskeg.

Diamond Dye* do a range of work

The dyspeptic carries a dreadful load
on his back. It seems as if he were
really made up of two men. One of
them ambitious, brainy and energetic;
the other sick, listless, peevish and
without force, The weak man weighs
the other one down. The dyspept'c
may be able to do pretty good work
one day, and the next day because of
some little indiscretion in eating, he
may be able to do nothing at all. Most
cases of dyspepsia start with constipation. Constipation is the cause of nine-
tenths of all human sickness. Some of
its symptoms are sick and bilious
headache, dizziness, sour stomach, loss
of appetite, foul breath, windy belch-
ings, heartburn, pain and distress
after eating. All these are indicative
of derangements of the liver, stomach
and bowels, and all are caused by
constipation. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets nre the quickest, easiest and most
certain cure for this condition. They
are not violent in action.
