Friday was the day fixeil lor the
Jubilee celebration in Oolden. The
weather broke out beautifully fine, and
the town presented an animated sight.
Golden people rolled np in force, and
as the Golden Lumber Co, -rave a
holiday for the occasion ther-r* was a
large .attendance from the mill and
camps. Donald was well represented,
and a large crowd came from Calgary
and points along the line. The Columbia Valley was not represented so
strongly as might have been expected.
The scene was enlivened by the
attendance of the Calgary Fire Brigade
Bond, who attended to the number ol
eighteen under Bandmaster Ritchie.
It was very kind of them to come, and
they ���gave their valuable assistance
most oheerfully, contributing largely
to the success of the gathering. On
the way to Golden the band entertained
the people along the road, playing at
Canrn6re and Field to the great delight
of those who' had the pleasure of
hearing them. On the train pulling
into Golden station there was a large
muster 0/ local residents, who received
the bandsmen with three hearty cheers.
They then marched to the ground,
where selections were played through*
ou- the day,.
There was a good gathering ol
people at the Jubilee Park at the
opening of the sports, but���partly
from want of organization, and partly
Irom laok ot competition-the sports
were not so successful as we could
have wished to see theiu. The thanks
of the committee are mainly due to
the president, Mr. Warren, the Vice-
president, Mr McNeish, and to Capt.
Armstrong, who worked hard to make
the best of the day. J. Adler was
secretary. The Hon. F. W. Aylmer
and Messrs. Braden and Griffitli
acted as judges to start with but
owing to an unpleasant incident in
connection with the programme Mr.
Aylmer very rightly withdrew, and
Mr. Cross, of Calgary, was appointed
In his stead. Mr. Dainard was starter
and was assisted by Mr. Spragge.
The following was the programme
gone through:���

barge, Thc Lumber Co.'s engine took
visitors from the town to the wharf.
About 200 availed themselves of the
trip, which Was thoroughly enjoyed,
and was regarded by the visitors as
one of the most pleasurable incidents
of the festival. The Calgary Band was
in attendance, and enlivened the scene
with sweet music. A dance wns arranged on board. The steamer returned with the visitors in time for the
engine in sotting up such a tooting of
their steam whistles as threatened to
make night hideous for a time.
CONCEI1T   .Nil   IIASUE.       >
On Saturday evening the carnival
concluded with it concert and dance at
tho Alexander Hall. Prior to the
concert lining held a most creditable
exhibition of tumbling 'tnd balancing
was given in tbe open by Pro!. jVugade
and L. Lloyd. There was a good
attendance 'at. the conceit, which
consisted of the following items:-
Two selections liy the band, piano solo

by Prof. jViigude; club-swinging, by
it. M. Wils.ui; instrumental trio, by
Prof. Auguilo (mandolin), W. Ritchie

showed their particular appreciation
by encoring the violin eolo by Prof.
-Vugade. and the trio by Proi. Augade,
Wi Ritchie, and L. Orr. R. M.
Wilson's exhibition ol club-swinging
was ulso heartily oheered.
Mr. Haggen stepped on the platform
and conveyed to the bund the welcome
of the people of Golden, aud their
appreciation ol the entertainment
provided for them by the visitors,
culling for three cheers, which were
heartily given. Mr, Smart returned
thanks on behalf of the visitors, and
expressed the pleasure the trip had
given them. The baud having played
the National Anthem, the hall was
cleared Tor dancing, the music for
whicli wus provided by Mrs. Rue,
Prof. Augade. Messrs. McDermot,
Br.rh, L. Orr, G, .Mitchell, Ritchie,
and McNeill.
On S unlay the band left for home
by Xo. 2. Tlio scene at the station

cheers for Golden, playing "For they
are jolly good fellows.'' As tho train
moved off Golden responded wilh three
henrtv cheers for the departing
visitors, the "tiger" called for by Mr.

John Edgar Griffith, of Donald, has
lieen appointed to the second Gold
Commissioner-hip for East Kootenay,
and will have charge of the district
from Canal Flat in the south to the
far end of the Donald division in
the north. Mr. Griffiths has been in
the service of the C.P.R. for 10 years,
having been engaged in the engineering
department. He was engaged in construction work, and on the completion
oi that ho was stationed at Donald,
where he held the responsible position
of engineer for the section from Donsld
to Kamloops. In consequence of the
alterations being made in thc C.P.R.
arrangements, Mr. Griffith was about
to remove his home to Revelstoke, but
will now remain at Donald.
The appointment is a very popular
one, Mr. Griffith having a high reputation as uu engineer, as well as being
a gentleman of known integrity. The
appointment of Mr. Griffith is considered probably the best that has been
made by the Turner Government.
At a time when so much important
trail nud road-work will have to lie
done it is of the highest importance to
have an officer experienced in mountain
engine-ring, and we are glad to know
that Mr. Griffith proposes to v.sit the
different localities in question with a
view to i.s.-.-imining for himself what
is required uud the best way to givo
effect 10 it. We wish Mr. Griffith]
every succesi in Ills new office.

On Friday Mr. Whyte. General Manager of the C, P. It., passed through
Golden on his way east. He had intended stopping off nt Golden, but had
to hurry on to meet Mr. Hauey. Superintendent of Construction of the
Crow'.-- Nest Road. During his visit
west Mr. Whyte visited Nelson. Sandon and Kaslo. Ho considers Nelson
Will be an important town.
In reply to the editor of the Era
Mr. Whyte stated that the workshops
at Golden will be put in hand as soon
as certain preliminary arrangements
are completed.
As to the Crow's Nest Pass Railway. Mr. Whyte saw the Hon, Col.
Bak.-r when in the west, with the result that Cranbrook will be the divisional point. Mr. Whyte thinks it will
also be the smelter point in view of its
proximity to lhe coal lands aud general convenience.
In confirmation of the information
hitherto published we notice in the
Manitoba Free Press an account of an
interview with Mr. Whyte at, Winnipeg on his return from his western
trip, when he made the following
statement: "In respect to the removal of the shops from Donald to
Golden and Revelstoke, it had been in
contemplation for some time to enable
more expeditious.execution of repairs
and meet the changed conditions consequent on the extension of traffic over
the Calgary and Edmonton brunch
lines and south from Revelstoke imo
the Kootenay country."

FRIDAY, JULY   10,  1S97.
One of the most iniquitous things
in Britiah Columbia is the manner in
which speculators hold their land free
of taxation. As goon as a bona fide
occupant bays a lot he finds that he is
taxed at a valuation ten or twenty
times greater than that of the original
townsite owner from whom he bought
the property. Indeed, some of these
township owners reckon thty shonld
be allowed to fleece the pnolic without
paying any taxation at all. So it was
that, when the incorporation question
cropped up at Revelstoke, the owners
and employees of the townsite joined
with the cliart-rinougers in opposing I Oolden as a field for investment
original road, and will not be used,
whereas all that was required was
simply the Improvement of the worst
places on that raod. How much
better wonld it bave been to have
expended that money on the McMurdo
Creek trail. If ever a piece of work
was justified and necessary that is,
for important development work is
being done there, and it is where
development work is being done that
the Government should assist it by a
liberal expenditure on trails, In the
case of MoMurdo Creek, Major Clohecy
had to take the men employed on the
Crown Point claim and put them for
two days on the trail so that supplies
conld be got in. The Crown Point
proprietors had also to put tn 160 ft.
of bridging at their own expense on
this trail. We suggest to Mr,
Griffith that, on his entering on his
position as Gold Commissioner, Spills,
machene and McMurdo Creek are
amongst the first localities thst he
should visit, and further expendituie
on the work at Spillamachene should
be stopped until he sees it. At McMurdo Creek the only method of
making a good trail is to make a
trench to drain oft the water and then
lay the track with corduroy. We
hope to see this urgently needed work
put in as soon as possible.
The information which we publish
in eur mining columns regarding the
Crown Point claim Is of great impor-
tend to the interests of this district as
a mining- centre. The development
work so far done by the syndicate
represented bv Major Clohecy is the
most v-luable that has yet been per
formed in connection- with bur mineral
resources, proving as it does the
existence of true fissure veins
immense bodies. Experience has
shown that locations of ore of this
description are on the whole the most
profitable to capitalists who Invest iu
them, and the Crown Point strike will
doubtless result in greater attention
being  paid  to  the   district   around

incorporation for the evident reason
that the taxation valuations would be
then properly adjusted, and the speculators would have to pay their share
of taxation. We consider the true
system of taxation is that now generally adapted in the Australian
Colonies, whereby hind is taxed on its
unimproved value, and the tax is
graded up to be higher the larger the
area of unimproved land.
With this system in use in British
Columbia, the townsite owners would
soon be' glad to sell their land to those
who would occupy or use it, snd the
charterinongers would begin to show
a religious spirit, and would pray to
be delivered from the burden of their
charters, while the really improving
and occupying landowners, who are
the backbone of the count-}-, would

other hand, every encouragement
would be given to permanent and improving settlers to go on with Ihe good
work of taking up land, improving
it, and adding to the wealth of the

Bostock, M.P., left for home last evening. Although the member for Yale
and Cariboo is thu wealthiest man in
the Dominion parliament, he ie one of
the most unassuming and hardest
workers in the Commons. He hss got
the practical and political wants of
British Columbia on his finger ends,
and in his own modest way never
ceases to keep the needs of the province
before the government. He takes a
broad view of all public questions, and
is strongly opposed to that class of
politicians who can see nothing good
outside their own constituency,"
We draw tbe attention of the
Uoveriiiuent to the urgent necesssity
that exists for improving the trail
along MoMurdo Creek. We are informed that it is in a difgraceful
condition-almost impassible-ami a
gentleman who has been over it
informs ns that it is dangerously
unsafe for hone traffic. Indeed, It Is
cruelty to animals to bave to pat
horses over it. The Government Is
responsible for this unsatisfactory

has been shown lo put in trails where

A Short Sketch of the Town.
The neighbouring town of Donald
is as yet essentially a railway centre.
It has a population of between 400 and
600, and is prettily situated on a
terrace overlooking the Colombia
River���an ideal townsite so far as an
area of level land, drainage and water
supply are concerned. Some pretty
residences are seen on the frontage and
railway blooks, th* home of R. A.
Kirap'on, among others, being suoh as
would grace the residential portion of
a large city, Donald Is the terminal
point of the Pacifio and Western
divisions of the C. P, R., and it also a
repeating station for the company's
telegraphic department. At Donald
are the headquarters of the Provincial
Government's offices for Esst Koot
enay. At this office the mining records
are all collected, the Gold Commissioner does his ohief business, the
voters' lists are compiled, the Supreme
and County Court hold their sittings,
ana those Interesting events of life ���
births, deaths, and marriages���are
registered here.
Mr. Barron is teaoher of the pnblio
sohool, and the trusteeship of the
school is in the hands of Messrs,
Pitts, Ncalon, and J Mack. We
have already referred to the want of
accommodation at this sohool, and the
necessity for its enlargement���a work
that the trustees should immediately
urge on the government and endeavor
to have carried out during the coming
vacation. We are informed that if
the school were enlarged there are
about sixty children of school age
who would attend it, nnd this would
in time secure the grant of an assistant teaoher, The school trustees don't
look very shy gentlemen, and we hope
they will do their duty in demanding
better accommodation for the school'
Douald has two well - furnished
stores���those of Munuel A Ruttan and
Kimpton A Pitts. Messrs. Manuel A
Ruttan are the pioneer merchants of
this part of the country. They came
over the divide in 1H86, along with
the advance guard of the C. P. R.
construction, and settled in Donald,
where they have worked up a good
business. The store carried on by
Messrs. Kimpton it Pitts was started
by J. C. Steen A Co. in 1SS6. In
1890 this business was purchased by
Mr. Kimpton, who carried it on
actively until 189.1, when he was
joined by his present partner, Mr.
Pitts. This pushing firm has also a
branoh store at Windermere
Donald possesses two hotels. The
Forest House, owned and run bv Mr.
Forrest, wss established 12 years
ago, iu the earliest days of the town.
Prior to this Mr Forrest had been
running a butchery business at Golden.
As Donald grew Mr. Forrest enlarged
hia hotel, till now it consists of three
storeys, with large bar, billiard,
dining, commercial, and sample rooms
on the ground floor, and 15 bedrooms
on each ot the second and third floors,
The house is well furnished. The
other hotel ia the Nelles House. This
hotel wss taken over in March last by

Truce Is Hurriedly Hoisted when that
Great General, South American Kidney
Care, Turns his Guns on the Disease.
This ia what James Sullivan, of Chatham,
Ont., writes:  "For years I was a great
sufferer from kidney trouble.  The disease
became so acute that I was confined to the
house, and was greatly inflicted with insomnia.   I was persuaded, after using many
other remedies without relief, to procure a
bottle of South American Kidney Cure.   I
had relief almost from the first dose.   I have
persisted in its use, and, after using six
bottles, I am well and strong again.   I can
work fourteen hours out of twenty-four and
feel very little, if any, fatigue.  It ia the
best medicine I have ever used."

No nmedy of modern times has
offered mora or stronger proof of its
sterling merit than has Dr.- Williams'
Pink Pills, The cures are not those
of people in foreign lands, but from all
parti of our own oountry, and the
statements mad* are easily verified by
everyone in the vioinity In which the
cures reported occur. When such
proof as this Is offered doubt must
cease, and the medioine must be
awarded the palm of superiority over
all others. Every mail brings letters
from grateful people In all parts of
Canada who have been cured by the
us* of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, sometimes after years of Illness and after
other medicines had failed, and it is
th* words of gratitude spoken by
sufferers thus restored to health that
has created the enormous demand this
medioine ha*. Th* following letter is
but a fair sample of hundreds constantly being received:���
Tht Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.
Dbak Sirs,���I have great pleasure
in bearing testimony to the medicinal
value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as a
Wood purifier and health restorer. For
ten years I was a victim to a complication of troubles, beginning witb
qninsey and followed by rheumatism
and bronchitis. My physicians told
me th* trouble had become chronic,
and that every winter I would either
hav* to house myself up or go to a
warmer climate. Two yean ago I was
confined to my bed and room from
February until May, under thi doctor's
care. One day while reading of the
cure* wrought by the use. of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, I determined to
try Ihem, and I found a cure at last In
this splendid medicine. I used a dosen
boxes of tlie pills, and I have never
been bettor in my life than I am now,
and I have not been tronbled in any
Way with my old complaints since I
discontinued the use of the Pink Pills.
As I hav�� already stated, I was a
sufferer for years, and during lhat
period spent a small fortune in doctor's
medioine and drugs, only to find in
the end that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
accomplished what all otlier medicines
failed to do. When my friends who
know how often I was laid aside with
illness asked me what cured me I am
always happy to say Dr. Williams'
Piuk Pills."
Yours gratefully,
Mrs. J. A. McKliti,
Mr. and Mrs. McKim are among the
best known and most esteemed -residents ot Cataraqul, Out. Mr. McKim
has been a travelling salesman for
pianos and organs in the district in
which he resides for upwards of
twenty-five yean.
What stronger priof than the above
sen be had for the claim that Dr. Wil-
lisms' Piuk Pills cure when all other
medicines fail? If you an ailing give
this great medicine a fair trial and the
result wil| not, disappoint you. Th*
public are cautioned aga.nst numerou*
pink-colored imitations. Insist upon
taking nothing but the packages whioh

Fort Stoele News.
A correspondent writes: We are
moving more steadily at Fort Steele.
In the month of Mcy there was a big
rush and a boom in town. The loss of
the two steamers checked the rush,
and arrested the boom, or else we
might havevhad an unhealthy state of
matters. The boom might have be*
come an intlatinn and burst through
over-expansion,and lots of disappointed
peeple would have gone out banning
the country. The country is all-
right, but we want development badly.
We have many good prospects, and
some bad ones also, Then has been a
recklessness shown iu staking out
some claims whioh an worthless.
Fort .Steele bss now a population of
over 1,000. beside* a large floating
population of somewhere about another
thousand. Next year will, however,
aetermina whither it will be a big
town. It will always be a business
place. There are now eight hotels,
and the same number of store*.
The assay obtained by R, Patmore,
of ore from the claim located by C
Baines on the Bluewater, ran *65 to
the ton.
Mr. Bangs, attorney for H. E. Foster, is at Sicamous and will arrive in
Golden in a day or two, when he will go
on to Fort Steele on business in connection with the Nip and Tuck claim
and other properties in which his
client is interested.
Sam. Johnson left this week with
some men and supplies to do development work on the Edinburgh group,
at Beaver, owned by Mitchell-Innes
Bros. Mr. Johnson will also take out
a party to work on the same firm's
claims at Prairie Mountain.
On Tuesday morning Major Walker
and Mr. McCarthy, the well known
solicitor of Calgary, arrived at Silver
City for the purpose of inspecting a
large body ol galena that bog been
struck on their property there. They
are also pushing on development work
on some oopper claims which they
hold in tbat locality.
C. H. Palmer, the prospector who
recently came over the divide Irom
West Kootenay, and has been off in
the Bluewater country, came into town
last week for supplies. He experienced
very severe weather in the'mountains.
He reports being very pleased with the
prospects of the country, especially at
the Clearwater, where he found free-
milling ore showing a good prospect
on crushing and panning. He returned this week.
Messrs. Kinnisten and W. H. Leee,
directors of the Bald Mountain Co.,
left this week with E. Kenny, of
Golden, for the purpose of visiting the
company's properties at Bald Mountain. The company propose to continue the tunnel which they were
working on last year, as owing to the
strike just made on the adjoining
claim they think they ought to strike
the ledge in about 100 feet. Now that
the bond on this claim has been
allowed to lapse, the company intend
to spend a good bit of money on development work, E. Kenny will be in
charge of operations, and arranged to
start this week.
The most important minin-; intelligence tbat we have had the pleasure
of publishing for some time is the fact
that the lode has been struck in the
Crown Point. Major Clohecy, who
has been ou the ground for some time
and under whose supervision the work
of development has been so successfully carried on, is naturally much
pleased with the result so far. The
leud was struck on June 18th ut a point
80 feet from the mouth of the tunnel,
and at about the same' distance vertically from the surface. After striking
it, the drive was carried aloig the
ledge for a distance of 28 feet, making
a total length el tunnel of 106 feet.
Major Clohecy then concluded to
ascertain how wide the ledge was. As
they had been following it up on the
hanging wall, a cut was mado across
to the loot-wall, when tho lead was
found to be 2il feet in thickness.
The lead is a clean, well-defined
fissure vein, with a clay gouge to
either wall. This is considered a very
favorable indication in snv miue.
After reaching the foot-wall the drive
was extended for another six feet,
making 112 feet iu all. The hill
pitches at an angle of 45 degrees, so
that it gives a foot vertically for every
foot they drive on the tunnel, so that
the strike is also about 112 feet from
tbe surface.
The vein through its entire width is
very heavily mineralised-in fact it is
a large body of concentrating ore with
seams of very elean, high-grade ore
running through It. Wheu Major
Clohecy left on the 8th the men worn
taking out a very much higher grade
of ore than they had previously encountered. This ore would run 40 to
50 per cent of lead. .
- The Major brought down with him
samples for assay. The or* has nil
ths characteristics, and is almost
ldentioal with, that fouud on the
This strike ts important in that it
establishes th* continuity of tha veins
in this part of th* oountry, where the
history of mining hat hitherto been
somewhat unfortunatt from want of
experience. The finding of this vein
so strong snd well-defined, and at a
depth nl 112 feet from th* surface also
shows that these veins run deep and
oarry value with them, and in this
respect the dlaeovery is important to
th* distriot as a whole equally with
th* interest of the individual owner*.
