Dawson Citt, Oot. 15.���Bulletin
Famine and starvation before tb* and
ol winter will stare in th* face fullv
3,000 people on th* Yukon river between Ilunook Creek, Alaska, and
Stewart Bivtr, Northwest Territory.
Thtn art ovtr a thousand ptopl* in
Dawson City without previsions. An
���quel number including women and
children, ire living; in ttnts.ind today
a htavy mow it .ailing. People art
arriving at tbt rata oi 76 a day, many
ol whom htvt list thin ball tnough
rations to latt through tbt winter.
Btant, flow,  riot,   bacon md othtr
Srovliions are (tiling Irom 91.25 to
1.60 a pound. Jack Dilton, ol
Juneau, and on* or two othir stock
mtn arrived lately with a few hundred
head ol llvt itock and ttmporarily
relieved tht ���!tuition.
No powir on earth cm prevent ���
famine. Th* people ap-rreciate it to tht
fullest extent. Caches are being rob*
bid nightly. Ont man wisdsiecied in
th* ut and thot through tht Itg,
which mty provt fatal. He it not a
natural thief, but was drlvon to det-
ptration by hunger. A dosen men
have bsen irreited for burgliriiing
caobet.
Tht Oold Commiitlonir could not
get tnough food to teed hit offlce font,
and wat compelled to send several
clerks and auiitanti down to Fort
Token, whtn 1000 ton* of grub 1*
ttortd. Th* winttr hit eommenctd,
and on tht Alatkt ild* of th* Tukon
Bivtr an folly 3,600 people, and thtn
it lm than 1,200 Ion* of grab to teed
them. Besides, too, th* Dominion
Polio* an sending forces of men down
tbt rlvtr to Ciralt City md Fort Yukon
to nlltv* th* local situation. In
Circle city a week or two igo two
steamers, P. B. Wear* md Bella, wen
stopped by thirty men armed with
wlnc.tstsrs aad nlltved of 80 tan* of
grab.
Thtn la ���* eonettllng tht trn*

aad probably scurvy. In thi name ol
tho** dspsodent upon the hardy
Americans and Ctnidlins ,who have
come to the Klondike to find fortunes
that thoee at horn* may bt comforted,
In tb* mme of tbe people ot the gnat
Tukon valley, I appeal for aid.
Provisions will be needed la February and March to pnvrat gnat tuSir-
ing. Th* commercial eo-npanitt in
doing what thty oan to nliivt tht
���iluation by equalising tht division of
tht food (apply. Hundreds ot mm *n

Jao*. No mm ua pwform bird work
on such meagre food, aad in thtiprlng
thty will probably bt suffering from

Besides, the court fees are so framed
as to meet the expenses cf tho administration of the Court and it would be
grossly unfair that in addition to the
Court tees litigents should be put to
the extra ex- onse of going to Revelstoke. Tbe people of East Kootenay
ought to kick against the proposed
change as unfair to the district,
Eatt Kootenay is a large and growing

FRIDAY,  DECEMBER  10, 1897.
REDISTRIBUTION
VERSUS CORRUPTION.
The question of re-distribution is
one of the most important that should
come up at the next session of the
Legislature. The Turner Government
will ehirk it if they can, as they know
that it is only by trickary and chicanery that they can hope to hold oliiee
any longer than the next elections.
The people are full up of a regime of
corruption which has tended to damn
the credit of the Province at home and
abroad and every elector who has the
welfare of che Province at heart has
made up his mind to do what he can
to hurl from office a Government that
has need its position for the benefit of
the members thereof and their friends.
The way in which the public lands
and franchises have been bartered away
has been nothing short of criminal.
We talk about political corruption in
the States, It seems to us that liefore
wecattatonet at our neighbors we
want to remove the motes that have
blackened the purity of government
in our own Provence, A change, and
a radical change, is wanted, that the
robbery of the nation mav be ended
and tome effort made to stem the -mischief that has been so unblushingly
pel petrated by men who seem to love
public offlce mainly for the sake of the
spoils thereof. The surest way
to bring tbout the desired
change il by a re-distribution
of seats, by which tbe new additions
to the population shall have fair
recognition and a just voice in the
election of the new Parliament. The
best wsy to ensure this is for the
electors in various centres to hold
public meetinge and demand of their
member his support for a re-distribution on a population basis, with an
added quota for country districts, as
the fairest basis on which to seek
amended representation.
THE COUNTY COURT.
The action of Judge Forin in Ordering that the sittings of the County
Court must be removed from Donsld
to Revelstoke it a matter for condemnation. East Kootensy is now viry
badly served in court matters, as there
is no titling of the County Court nt
Fort Steele, and the only way of getting cues heard in the district hss
been by means of tbo sittings at Donald or taking them to the Supreme
Court on the Coast. It is no answer
te say that ths cases are so few that
the Crown is put to disproportionate
expense. No matter how tew tlie
cases an, it just means this, that if
the Judge does not go to the expense
ot coining to Donald, litigants have
to be put to the expense of going to
Revelstoke. We consider that those
who unfortunately may have to go to
law are just as deterring of consideration as is tho Judge, and then is no
reason why the expense should be
taken off the shoulders of the Oovernment and saddled on the litiga-its,
whose court expenses are usually heavy
enough without being put to this
additional    trouble   and    hardship.

STICK TO OUR OWN PEOPLE.
Some people in Oolden have tuch
a fancy for the Asiatic that they think
he ought not only to do the cooking
and laundry work, but to run the
newspapers, hotels, stores, and do the
watchmaking and lawyering, and in
fact own the town. Such a policy is
as degrading as petitioning in favor of
a gambling house. Asiatic labor is
one of the curses of civilisation nil
over the world. It brings down the
wages of the white men, demoralizes
the standard of living, and has such a
bad effect on the nations where it has
been tolerated thst the Australian
Governments have voted it out after
exhaustive enquiry, No man there
dare advocate the cause of tho Asiatic
as against the white man. That
cause is so well understood that the
man who takes it up is regarded as
an enemy of his race and rightly so.
The fact that Japanese labor was
employed on a mine ot. the Bugaboo
this season to the exclusion of white
labor was a public scandal and a
repetition ought to lie stopped by
legislation. What is to become of our
white laborers if the exainplo of the
Dunsmuirs in setting the law at
defiance, by employing Chinese labor
in coal mines, is lo be extended to our
mineral claims! We say voto it down!
Wesaytothe people of Golden, not
only stick to your town but stick to
the people of your own race! We
want no cheap-John Chinese watch
makers, hotelkekpers or storekeepers
in Golden, and ne hope the people of
this town will set a good example
to tho people of other towns in British
Columbia by refusing patronage und
encouragement to businesses carried on
by Asiatics, whose main effect must
be to take the bread out of the mouths
of deserving people of our own race.
We are glad to be in a position to
say that the proposed railway from
Golden to the Yukon on the north
and from Golden to the International
boundary on the south appears lo be
in good hands. The company's solicitors in reply to our enquiry as to the
prospects of the railway being carried
out, provided a charter is granted
write us: "Wo are enabled to go so
far as to state that it is English capital
and the undertaking is receiving the
consideration of people of undoubted
means and tliere is no reason why the
railway should not become an accomplished fact."
AN INCOMPETENT TREASURY.
The officers of the Dominion Treasury don't appear to have the remotest
idea ss to their duties in regard to
the circulation. From all parts of
British Columbia comes the cry that
there is a scarcity of small change -
bills and silver���for tbe carrying on
ol business transactions. American
silver is largely used to help to make
up but the difficulty still exists.
The matter was recently brought
under the notice ot Manager Clouston,
of the Bank of Montreal, and he stoically replied that there was half a million in small change in the Treasury at
Montreal or some other out-of-the-way
place. That ii no answer. The money
is wanted In the west, and it is the
duty of the Treasury to meet that
want by turning out the money that
is said to be locked up in the vaults at
Montreal and get it into circulation In
the west, where thero is so much
demand for it. The merest school-boy,
let alone Manager Clouston and the
Dominion Treasurer, ought to know
that money locked up in vaults is of
no service to the public, and might as
well beat the bottom of the deep bine
sea. We guarantee tbat Manager
Clouston does not pay the ten per cent
dividends out ot his great banking
institution by keeping its money locked
up in the bank's vaults at Montreal.
Not he! He gets all he can into circulation, and why lie should seek to injure
the country by a policy tho reverse of
his own is one of those mysteries of
banking that suggests that banks and
railways should be run by the state.
Then the public interests would
receive fair consideration, instead of
being sacrificed as they now are to
made dividends for giant corporations.
The people of Oolden ought to stick
to their town. It is unfair to
the business' people that patronage
should be given to carpet-baggers who
open for retail purposes for a 'day or
two and then clear out. The prosperity of our business men is the prosperity of th*> town. We hone therefore
that the residents ot Golden will take
what we Bay to heart and patronise
the business people wbo reside in their
midst, and give ptripatelio shopmen
the go-by. Don't place an order outside your town thit cm be filled in ill

Rheumatism is a

to keep tbe digestion and assimilation petfect and

perfect, the liver active, the blood pure and
rich with the life-giving elements of the
food, the nerves strong and steady, and it
drives all impurities and abnormal acids
from the blood. It allays inflammation and
dispels pain. It is tbe great blood-maker
ud flesh-builder.    It does not mske cor-
fiulent people more corpulent. Unlike cod

tears down the unhealthy, ball-dead tit.

Thousands dye this month. The
vast majority make the work profitable and pleasant, while others are
confronted with disappointment, despair and ruin.
The happy and successful dyers are

Dyes that produce the brightest, fastest and most lasting colors. The discontented and unhappy ones are the
few that use the common and crude
package and soap grease dyes, giving
muddy and blotchy colors.
If you desire to make your costumes,

look like new garments, buy some
fashionable dark color of the Diamond
Dyes, and you will bs astonished with
the results. Now is the time to look

ready for another season's wear. Fast
Diamond Black, Seal Brown, Indigo

Tht tote road, which follows the line

loosened by the soaking of the snow

when feed was stored on low ground
it wss sll lott by the high water,
Elk Rlvtr, within 24 hours, became s
wild, raging mountain torrent, and as
it swept down itt tortuous cour.se,
through canyons and over low lands,
everything wu carried away by its
irnaistible force. The camps located between Elk River
and the summit fared the worn,
and for several days horses
wen placed on short rations and men
wen not able to secure whit they
needed. Contrictor Cass hid itveril
teimi en route to Macleod for powder

getting back to camp with their hor-
