Although Mr. "Wells, M.P.P., was
in the House only a week before tbe
close of tin; session he had the con
gratulatious of his fellow members on
tbe oxcellent services which he rendered to hie constituents within that
short time, and the success of .his per
Sisteilt efforts in obtaining the grant
on the snpplomentnty estimates for the
bridge at "Windermere was a surprise
to the other inetubors, who. witli good
reason, complimented North East
Kootenay ou having such a live and
active member. Mr. Wolls had to
contend with difficulties iu this matter
which were mado for him boforo he
got there by those who ought to have
had mote discretion. Owing to the
surrounding circumstances wo cannot
well publish the details of this matter
but to those who are acquainted with
it the success of Mr. Wells's efforts
will bo the more appreciated. Mr.
Wells intends returning to Victoria
shortly to go fully into the requirements of North East Kootenay with
tbe members of the cabinet and to ensure the interests of the district being
actively pressed forward.

In dealing with the town lots at
Field wo hops the Minister of the Interior will take steps to see that the
people who have built on lots there
will be fully protected in their interests. It has been stated that the lots
will be put up to auction, but we submit thnt would be a most unjust pro-
posal, as it would enable tbe C.P.R. or
any other monopoly to buy np these
lots and give them full control of the
townsite���the very thing which it is
sought to avoid. The people who have
taken up lots and built should have
tbe first right to them, und a reasonable valuation should be placed on the
lots, with a small deposit, and tho
balance payable on easy terms. This
policy would ensure to the residents
there the right which they are entitled
to, and moreover it would enable tbe
C.P.R. employees to get free homes and
not be bound body nud soul to the
Company employing them. We have
asked Mr. Rostock to support this view
of the case with the Minister of the
interior aud he will doubtless do so.
Revelstoke is ut lust sn incorporated

Visitors are coming into the district

H.P P.,
The following is a correct statement
favored us by W. C. Wells, M.P.P.,
showing the 1'oms upon which a new
loan of 5*1,800,000 is based, aud whioh
the Finance Minister now finds it
necessary to raiso:

By this it wiil be seen ns Mr. Wells

tribute*) to the mismanagement of the
Turner administration, und that Mr.
Cotton, us it will he seen, is not oven
making any provision for the deficiency according to his estimate covering
Ihe fiscal year ending 80th June 1900,
say $215,000.00. This ho hopes to
wipe out hy increased revenue, uud as
compared with previous deficits is a
very satisfactory showing. To do
this without (increasing tne proposed
loan is what Mr. Cotton coansiders imperative in preserving the financial
credit of the Province. The deficit for
the ensuing fiscal year, as Mr. Wells
puts ��� it, n-presents considerably less
than our annual interest account alone
and which now foots up in round
figures over $242,000.00, so that were
it not for the gross recklessness of
previous administrations, wo would
now bo in the hnppy condition of not
only making ends meet but enjoying u
surplus os well. The Finance Minister has been compelled to curtail in
every possible direction, so as to bring
the expenditure for the next year within a point obviating au inci eased loan
aud tho public in their demands should
not be so exacting ns to defeat Mr,
CAton iu his luuluble object.
Were wo able, Mr. Wells suys, lo
spend this huge interest appropriation
iu development work, a very different
state of things would present Itself, it
will, of course, be said iu defence of
the late government, that we havo our

We have endeavored for tho past 18
months to impress on tho people of
Golden the importance of the northern
country, the necessity of getting good
communication with it, and the desirability of cultivating its trade end resources. Tete Jaune Cache is the
common point for that country, and
Tete Jaune Cache is distant 480 miles
from Edmonton, 240 miles from Kamloops, and only 100 miles from Golden.
Tbe rotttos from Edmonton and Kamloops present also great difficulties,
while, with the expenditure of $2000
on the trail from Donald, a first-class
means of communication can bo got
between Golden and the Cache. Another feature of this route is that
Water communication can be obtained
to within 40 miles of the Cache liy the
Columbia and Cunoo rivers. Gold is
found in all the rivers and streams in
that country. At loast this is what
Mr. Evans, who has been prospecting
there for the last two or three years,
in company with Mr. Price, tells us.
Nothing however of any note was
found till last fall, when, iu pros, act-
ing Swift Current, which runs into
the Fraser near Tete Jaune Cache,
such good rim prospects were found
that the party returned to Golden,
outfitted and went back. There have been
four parties of prospeciaars in there this seo-
sou���Messrs. Price and Evans, Holliday and
party, Frank Fulton, the woll known trapper
anil his partner, and a party from Edmonton,
l'ria-o a��d F.van�� locaied ou Swift Current,
ami Holliday aud party located on tho samo
stream u bit Inghor up, while Frank Fulton
located on a stream Tviiieb joins the Fraser
60 miles further north, and is tlio fifth tributary from Tote Jauuo Caeho. Each party
built a cabin, and started sinking shafts to
bed rock. A month ago Evans left camp to
como out on suowsliajos. The trip took him
oror a fortnight, two days of which wore
spent in a stop-off to effect repairs to snow-
shoes, eta. lie carried his supplies with liiui
and cached somo on the way for the return
trip. Ue reached Uoaver a fortnight ago, and
waauto.t tol-anuuld and Golden, lie brought
out let.ers with lijin aud also particulars tor
recording ten claims, Mr. Griffith, UaJJ
Commissioner, got Ilio particulars of thesa
claims anal soot, them on for record to Barker-
���aillo, the district iu which lh*-y wero locatod
being in the Cariboo Mining Division,
Evans is naturally reticent as to the exact
position of all'alls but it is generally believed
tliat something good lias been struck. Ho

Thero is great jubilation at Windermere over the grunt for the bridge at
tbe Salmon Beds, and the unanimous
opinion of the people of Windermere
now is that Mr. Wells, M.P P., who
sscured tbe grant, is ������allright."
The Winnipeg Free Press points out
that the C.P.it. is no longer able to
run the Dominion ns it was under tbe
Conservative ndtniuistrutio i, and instances how the other day the C.P.R.
hud to climb down by withdrawing
its monopoly lur.tf to the Standard Oil
Company ou the demand of tho Railway Committee.
We have to congratulate Mr. W. C.
Wells, M.P.P., on the excellent start
he has made in watching tbe interests
of his constituents, though he was so
late in reaching Victoria. Theesii
mates and legislative reforms show
that the listriot whioh bo represents
has had its interests as 11 whole us
carefully nnd fully attended to ns it
was possible under the necessary policy of retrenchment and re arrangement
of th* public finances of  the Province.
Tbe Government should put in hand
at once the uoiistruotlun of the bridge
over the Columbia at tht Salmon Beils
so that it may be available for traflic
as soon as the rush sets in. Besides,
timber can now be put on the ground
niore easily and cheaply than later on.
An offer has already been made to
build the bridge for the sum of $8000
$500 less than the amount voted.
Wecominend this matter to the urgent
attention of Mr, Wells, M.P.P.

it will bo seen that Mr. Cotton is as a
fact providing appropriation for public
works aino-.iutiug to $385,093.00,while
the aternge annual appropriation taking the past live years is ouly some
$(i0,000 moro. Mr. Wells argues tliat
it is therefore safe to assume that under the policy of the present administration for tbo next few years Mr.
Cotton will not only put the finances
of the province in a very much improved condition but will materially
meet the demands which must lie made
for development work���eesoiiiially iu
mining roads as well as other publiu
improvements so indispensable to our
progress and that we have ouly to
exercise some degree of patience us tho
penalty of so inniiy yours unbusinesslike management of our finances iu
extending to Mr. Cotton the encouragement he has so well earned while endeavoring to put the affairs of the
Province upon a sounder basis. It is
to bu hoped, as suggested hy Mr. Wells,
lhat the new loan will be largely, if
not wholly taken up without going to
London, thus getting the fullest possible benefit from it by avoiding the
usual shrinkage in the way of com
missions and other charges.

W. C. Wells, M.P.P.. returned from
his legislative duties on Friday last,
and will shortly make a tour of the
electorate wilh a view to meeting his
constituents and making himself thoroughly ncqusinlod with their requiro-
uieuts. We supported Mr. Wells because wo believed ho would make a
lirst-class member. The whole electorate will soon come round toour way of
thinking in this regard, for Mr. Wells
is determined to givo overy portion of
bis constituency the same attentive
consideration that he has given to the
interests of Wiudermere.
Robbed tho brave.
A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows :
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue coated, pain continually in my back and sides, no appetite
���gradually growing weaker day by
day. Three physicians had given me
up. Fortunately a friend advised trying 'Electric Bitters;' and to my great
joy and surprise, the lirst bottle made
a decided improvement, I continued
their use for three weeks, and am now
a well man. I know they saved my
life and robbed the grave of another
victim." No one should fail to try
them. Only 60 cts, a bottle, every bottle guaranteed, at any Ding Store,    6
fa al to tlioni
.      snow at Tete
Jaune Cache llian thero is at Uolaloii. Evans
found good travelling ar-n snow sh-.es ou the
way out except for threo days of iho nip between Canoe liivor anal KinbasUot Lake.
Evans loft tiailalon ou Wednesday to return,
taking a gentleman from Edmonton with
hint. From what wo wore able to gaithor the
grouud is not yet so thoroughly tosteal as to
bo alalo to.-.ay definitely whether a rich strike
has been made. Evans says that Diving to
the gi-ouinl freezing the 'prospectors have
been unable to get their .shafts to beal-roek
He thinks, however, from a message obtained
from Frank Fulton, that lie has mado a pretty
good strike.
Evans was much disappointed to learn of
the alien law just passoal as it has debarred
several of tlio prospectors from recording tho
claims tlaey haul staked. Among others so
affected are Fulton, llollialay, and Oavons.aud
perhaps others. Claims havo been staked
tor some (iolalen and Donald people, among
others, J. C, Tilts, J. G. Ullock, and J.Noble.
The district being so much more convenient to (iulalon than any other point we wouial
suggest to Jlr. Wells, M.P.P., that steps he
taken to have the boundaries of North East
Kootenay extended to cover it. Tliat records
should nave tu come to Golden and than lie
sent on to llarkervills for registration is too
absurd for anything.
The Revelstoke Herald admits the
advantages ol Gulden aud district uu a
rival for tho trade of the Big Bond and
Cunoo river country. Our contemporary remarks : " The fate of this place
is so Intimately bound up with tbe
development of the Big Bend nnd
Canoe rivor countries that we cannot
afford any carelessness in connection
with it. No matter how groat the
natural advantages of our geographical position it would unquestionably
interfere considerably wilh tho establishment of this point as tbe business
centro for North Kootenay if Htcamcrs
began to run to Big Bend from Beaver
before we got our line started from
Rovelstoke. And that thero aro certain advantages about the route from
Beaver is undeniable."
On a visit to Donald recently we
noticed great changes. The big C.P.R.
boarding house hnd been removed, as
had also the ice-house, and almost
every train saw somo former resident
leaving tho town or shipping furniture
and belougiugs. The refreshment
rooms over which the Misses Cleary
formerly presided were closed, the
ladies having removed to Revelstoke.
Hull Bros, butcher's shop was boarded
up. The attendance ut the school had
fullen from about 00 to 30, aud Mr.
Barron, the head master, who has
done such excellent work for education,
is under orders to leave, the school to
be carried on meantime under his efficient assistant, Miss Millard. Two
well-known residents, Messrs. Urquhart and Woodhouse were arranging
leave at tho time of our visit and they
were to be followed by others.
Mr. Patmore has beon on a visit to
West Kootenay to look out a new location, and he leaves again next week
for the purpose of paying a visit to tbe
Boundary country nnd looking out a
now home. The Donald gaol, with one
prisoner, is nt present under charge cf
Mr. Slirrett, but. no gaoler has been
appointed in place of Sheriff Redgrave,
and tho gaol will be located at Golden
as soon as the transfer arrangements
are completed.
The once active office of the station
agent is now loft alone to Mr. McMillan, the agent. The two operators
formerly there have been removed to
Rogers Pass and the agent has to do
all the office telegraphy as well as bis
ordinary work, which hus. been very
heavy, owing to the rapid removal of
the Company's and the employees'
effects, necessitating the billing and
despatch of several cars each day. T.
Forrest has pulled down bis gas plant
and sent it to his new hotel at Cranbrook, and he will remove there as
soon as possible. W. Caldwell, proprietor of the Nolles House, however,
says he in'ends to remain,
Mr, D'Arcy.tbc C.P.R. claims agent,
paid the town a visit last week witb a
view to investigate the claims for
compensation that have been put in
against the Company by resilient, who
have suffered loss by their buildings
and businesses being rendered valueless in consequence of tiie removal of
the shops and divisional point. Mr.
D'Any has the reputation of being an
able and fair adjuster and the people
expect reasonable consideration at his
hands, Mr. D'Arcy returned to Winnipeg on Sunday ��� and will report to
Mr. Whyte. Mr. D'Arcy's view is
that the people of Donnld have no legal
claim and that compensation awarded
will be purely voluntary on tho part of
the Company. We hope, however, to
see the residents of Donald treated by
ths Company as liberally  as possible.
A Tliousnild T-sugnett
Could not oxpress the rapture of
Annie E. Springer, of Hi.',7) Howard St..
Philadelphia, Pu., when she found
that Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption had completely cured
her of a hacking cough that for many
years bad made life a burden. All
other retnodes and doctors could give
her no help, but sho says of this Royal
Cure���"It soon removed the pain in
my chest and I can now sleep soundly
something I can scarcely romember
doing before. I feel like sounding its
praises throughout the Universe." So
will every ono who tries Dr. King's
New Discovery for any trouble of the
Throat, Chest or Lungs. Price 60 cts
and $1.00 at any Drug Store; every
bottle guaranteed.
The New Koud* Act.
The Dovelopment Toll Roads Act,
passed during the last sorsiou is. us
we understand, intended to provide
transportation facilities in tho Atliu
district, but it is suggested that under
this act additional provision could be
made for development roads that aro
now absolutely necessary in other districts. It is simply n matter of levying toll, nnd whicli might be done byway of an assessment on the output of
mines. Wo hope our representative,
from whom this suggeetion comes,
will do what he can to still further
tho interests of tho constituency in
this direction.
When iho hill came before the House,
Mr. Wells, tvhiln expressing his satisfaction at its introduction, strongly
urged upon tbo Government the necessity of going further in meeting tbe
demands of initio holders by the construction of roads. The loll system ho
contended hadsomcdistustelui features
and that, a system of assessment would
he mete acceptable, loading as it would
to more practicable results, He urged
upon the Government the necessity of
bringing down some general schenio
which could be Hindu available for this
purpose���conionding that it would
never do to continue piece-mealing
appropriations as they did not afford
tlio relief demanded.
The Victoria Times we observe refers
to Mr. Wells's remarks in his first
speech as a valuable contribution to
the debate.

Said to he Prevailing to an Alarming
Extent Among Dairy Herds.
The Provincial Board of Health have
issued the following circular:
That tuberculosis prevails to an
alarming extent amongst the dairyherds
supplying tho city of Winnipeg with
milk is indicated by the tuberculin
test as applied lately by tbe Dominion
Veterinary Surgeon. Fifty per cent,
of those tested up to dnto reaoting.
The correctness of the test has beeu
proveu iu several cases by slaughtering, post mortem, and bacteriological
The samo diseased conditions may
exist amongst dairy herds supplying
milk to other centres of population iu
the Province.
Investigations iu Great Britain, German}*, tbe United States, etc., prove
tliat tho disease specially prevails
amongst such dairy cuttle, and only lo
n slight extent amongst the ordinary
cattle of farmers.
Tuberculous cattle do not yield tuberculous milk iu nil stages of tbe disease.
Few do so in the early stages nnless
tho ndtler be the special seat of the infection. Nearly all do so iu tho lutter
stages when the disease has become
generalized. Iu all cases tbo milk is
milk from nn iiuhealtby.a diseased animal, and if not directly capable of conveying the disease, to soy the least, it
is extremely obnoxious to thiuk of
drinking it.
Tlio meat from such tuberculous animals cnten raw, or iu a partly cooked
condition, is far more dangerous than
milk. Many of these tubercular cattle
appear to the eye to be iu prime condition, und when shown to be tuberculous by tho tuberculin test nre generally disposed of by being seut to the
slaughter-house to furnish a portion
of our meat supply. Upon this point

Diseases of the heart are by far the most treacherous of ailments which alilirt humanity���ruthless

heart trouble, and so far past the experimental period
that thousands to-day proclaim,in no uncertain sound,
the belief that were it not for this great remedy they
world have long ago passed into the great beyond.
Most eminent doctors, whom heart cases have baffled, havo
tested Dr. Agnew's claims, and to-day they prescribe it in
their practice as the quickest and safest heart remedy knowa
to medical science. What are the symptoms ? Palpitation, fluttering, shortness of breath, weak and irregular pulse, swelling of
feet and ankles, pain in the left side, chilly sensations, faintiag
spells, uneasiness in sleeping, dropsical tendency and as many
more indications that the heart is deranged. Dr. Agnew's

When a young woman sits down and
ponders over her future life, there is one
all-important subject which she should not
forget. In a day dream she may build
eastles in the air with a happy home, laughing children and a loving husband in the
fore-ground. At that moment she miy be
fncins death. Matrimony and motherhood
hold out no happiness to the young woman
who cm Iters from weakness and disease of
the distinctly feminine organism. The woman who suffers in this way will be it weak,
nervous, sickly, petulant wife, an -incapable
mother and an unamiable hostess. Not
knowing -the truth, her acquaintances will
not understand thnt she is deserving ttf
pity rather than reproach..
Any woman may be strong and healthy
in a womanly way if she will use the fight
remedy. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is the best of all medicines for weak and
ailing women. It nets directly on the delicate and important organs that make wifehood and motherhood possible. It makes
them strong, healthy and vigorous. It
banishes the dangers that surround maternity. It insures a healthy baby and an
ample supply of nourishment. Thousands
of women who were weak, sickly, nervous
invalids, are now healthy, robust wives and
competent mothers of healthy children, as
the result of the use of this medicine.
Mrs. John M. Conklfn, of Patterson, Putnam
Co., N. Y.. (Box 104), writes: "I am enjoying
ber feci health and have been since I took trie last
bottle of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I
had falling of the internal organs, or feinnle

Suicides With Binder Twine.
Kingston. March 2.���Word comes
from North Augusta, east of this olty,
of an attempt at suicide hy Thos.
Thorne, an old man 75 years of age.
Thome, who lived with his wife and
son on a farm, had but one limb.
Financial and family troubles worried
him and he went to the bar and made a
rope of binder twine. Climbing on a
threshing machine, he tied one end of
tbe rope around the overhead beams,
making it fast at the other end to his
neek and jumping from the machine,
tho rope broke and he fell to Ibe
sjronud, tho fall rendering him unconscious, in which condition he was fonnd
some hours later by a neighbor, who
had been sent by Thome's wife to look
for the old mnn. Thome, although
given every care, died from his injuries.
A $400,000 WRIT
An Injunction is Also Asked���Explanation by Mr. Byron E. Walker
of the Bank of Commerce.
Hamilton, March 2.��� On behalf of
the Canada Life policy holders a writ
has beeu issued in the name of Wm.
Lees, of the legal firm of Scott, Lees &
Hobsou, against Senator Cox, claiming
$400,000 from him, alleged to have
been received illegally in his capacity
us agent of the company while also a
director. Tho company is joined as a
defendant, to meet tbe legal requirements, and the plaintiffs also ask for
an injunction.
Toronto, March 2.���Senator Cox is at
present in New York nnd is net expected back until the beginning of next
week. Nothing has beeu heard of the
issuing of tho writ nt the office of the
Canada Life, on King street west, and
uo explanation of its meaning was
forthcoming, further than nt tho time
Senator Cox was appointed to the directorate, Messrs. Heudrio and Stuart
opposed tho election nnd raised tbe
question as to whether he conld sit ns a
director and be remunerated as au
Byron E. Walker, general manager
of the Bank of Commerce, nnd a director of the (Janada Life, spoke ou the
matter ns follows: "Mr, Scott is, if 1
am well informed, interested in the
Canada Life to tbo extent of ono share,
transferred to him just before the annual meeting, and ie, I believe, not a
policy bolder. Even if there were
anything in their contention, Ibe amount of money sued for is preposterous,
and the writ undoubtedly represents tbe
personal animus of certain persons in
Hamilton, and not the genuine inter
esls of the policy holders. Senator Cox
bas only been a director for five or six
years, and before entering the hoard
the qneslion of his right to be both
manager of the eastern district and a
director was doubtless duly considered."

The Platform Woman.
"The platform woman never has been
a credit to. bnt ever a blot upon, American womanhood. I make this emphatic
statement from n personal knowledge
of the homes whicli theso women leave
behind when thoy go to their meetings, " writes Edward Bole in Tho Ladies' Home Journal.
"I have seen the rooms of thoir
homes left in wild disorder; I have seen
their servants sitting in idleness with
work on every hand to do; I hare seen
tbe children neglected and left to their
own devices; I have heard husbands
���peak in derision of the motives of their
wives. No woman in a happy American
home can ever afford to listen to these
parasites of her sex.
"Fortunately, the platform woman's
influence is steadily on the wano. She
was never a power. She wns never even
picturesque. Her worst injury was
wrought upon certain weak women who
for tho time she deluded Bnt even
with them she was soon regarded witb
wonder rather than with interest; with
'Suspicion rather than with confidence.

A very bad attack of the Grippe one
year ago last winter left my system in a
very weak state and my nervous system
completely unstrung. After getting over
the dangerous stage of the disease I
naturally expected to gain strength, but,
unfortunately, did not do so. On the
contrary, my blood became weaker. I
daily lost strength and vitality, and my
nervous system became so weak that it
was a constant source of suffering both
day and night I lost appetite, the sight
of food nauseated me, the weak state of
my system caused shortness of breath
and unnatural action of the heart, such
as fluttering and violent palpitation, and
my face was like chalk. I was in this
condition and constantly getting weaker
when I began taking Dr. Ward's Blood
and Nervo Pills. I had read the books
they distributed and their advertisements
in the papers, and thought, "Well, I
have taken so much medicine without
benefit it is useless to spend any more
money. However, I finally made up my
mind. It is a forlorn hope; I can but try.
If I am not benefited I will not be hurt.
So I bought one box and received great
benefit therefrom, so continued their use,
and to-day am a well man in consequence;
my blood is strong, my face has the ruddy
hue of health, my appetite has returned,
I sleep well, I have not the slightest indications of nervousness or heart trouble,
and from a sick, weak, nervous man Dr.
Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills havo
transformed me in six weeks to full health
and strength." I am yours very truly,

Are U.u.lly the Result of Imperfect Work-
lag of the Kidneys���These Can Only b.
Restored to Their Normal Condition by a
Pair U.e of Or. William.' Pink Pill..
Ur. Albert Mintie, of Woodstock,
Ont., now engaged in the insurance
business, is well known in that olty
and surrounding country. Some three
years ago Mr. Mintie was living at
South River, Parry Sound District, and
while there was attacked with severe
pains in the back. At first he paid b it
little attention to them, thinking that
the trouble would pass away, but as it
did not he consulted n local physician,
nnd was told that his kidneys were
affected. Medicine was prescribed, bnt
beyond a trifling alleviation of the pain
it had no effect. In addition to the
pain in tho back Mr. Mintie was
tronbled with headaches aud a feeling
of lassitude-. He was forced to qnit
work, and while in this condition,weak
nud despondent, ho deoided to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. He purchased a
half dozen boxes and was not disappointed with the result. Before they
were all used Mr. Mintie was feeling
almost as well ns ever he had done.
Tbe pain in the back had almost disappeared, the hendnches were gone, and
be felt greatly improved in strength.
Two moro boxes completed the onre.
aud he returned to work hale aud
hearty ns ever. Mr. Mintie asserts that
his return to health is dne entirely to
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and he still
occasionally uses a box if he feels iu
any way "out of sorts."
The kidneys, like other organs of the
body, are dependent upon rich, red
blood and strong nerves for healthy
iction, and it is because Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills Bnpply theso conditions that
ahey enre kidney troubles, as well as
other ills which have their origin in
watery blood, or a shattered nervons
system. Sold by all dealers or sent
postpaid at SOc a box or six boxes for

Medicine Oo., Brookville, Ont. If you

Salt Rheum or Eczema���that
most stubborn of skin diseases,
which causes such torture and is so
difficult to cure with ordinary remedies���cannot withstand B.B.B.'s
healing, soothing power.
The case of Mrs. Jas. Sanderson,
Emerson, Man., shows how effective B.B.B. is in curing Salt Rheum
at its worst, and curing it to stay
This is what she wrote:
" Burdock Blood Billers cured me of a
bad attack of Salt Rheum three years ago.
It was so severe that my finger nails came
off I can truly say that I know of no
more valuable medicine In Ihe world than
B.B.B. It oured ma completely and
permanently, as I have never bad a touch
of Salt Rheum since."

Defendant Aoqulttod.
At the Magistrate's Court, Golden,
on Monday, before Mr. Griffith, S.M.,
J. L. Mackay was charged with nsing
a horse the properly of F. J. Deacon.
As the defendant had failed to appear to the summons ill tho first instance His Worship demanded au
explanation of this contempt of Court
aud defendant said as he was busy,
and had nothing io do wilh the offence
charged against him, he thought il
would be sufficient if he soot some one
to appear for him.
His Worship said he didn't know
whether ho was doing right, but he
would accept the explanation iu this
Askoi as to what he had to say with
reference lo the charge against him,
defendant said he had not used the
horse in question. As it had formerly
run on the range it fed with his other
���took and he had forbidden his meu to
uso tbo horse, and the fact that L.
Moodie was fi.uud riding it was in
defiance of his instructions,
His Worship said there bad been too
much of this sort of thing going on up
the valley aud he was going to put a
stop to it if possible. As defendant
did not appear to have been guilty of
the offence charged against himself
from the evidence he would simply
order defendant to pay the costs of the
Court and hoped the case would be a
warning to people not to interfere with

This remedy is intended espeoially
for coughs, colds, croup, whooping
cough and influenza. It has become
famous for its cures of these diseases,
over a large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonals have
been received, giving accounts of its
good works; of the aggravating and
persistent coughs it haa cured ; of sey,
ere colds that have yielded promptly to
its soothing effects, and of the dangerous attacks of croup it has cured, often
saving the life of the child. The ex
tensive use of it for whooping cough
has shown that it robs that disease of
all dangerous consequoncos. For sale

Copper Creek is a tributary of the
.Middle Fork of the Spillimachene. The
trail leading lo it leaves the middle
fork at a point about 16 miles from
Carbonate. The distance up the Creek
to the point where the mineral locations
are laid out is about ten miles. A few
years back Copper Creok was highly
thought of and a Company represented
by Rnnd Bros., and Mr. Oppenheimer,
did considerable development work
there.   The first properties are the
claims, which are situated in a glacial
basin on the mountain elope on*, the
right bank of Copper Creek. There is
an immense showing ol quertz on this
property, great le ids cutting and cross-
cutting the formation, while there are
numerous exposures of ore from sine
to gold quartz There arc two promising leads of galena. Two short tunnels have been run on these exposures,
but since the properties have been in
the han���������h of the Klotenny Consolidated Company, Major Clohecy has put
some business system into tbe development and the work has been done
on a quartz ledge showing strongly in
iron. The galena has a crys
talliue formation, peculiar tu the galena found on the Excelsior claim ou
Crystal Creek and on the Syenite Bluff
claim on Vermont Creek. The lead on
which development is now being done
is two feet in thickness with a strike
of lo degrees east of north, and a dip
of 65 degieos to the north. At the
time of our visit the tunnel was in 35
feet. The property is stated to have
given high assays in gold. About a
mile further on, and on the same slope

This is a property which was operated
by Messrs. Oppenheimer. A tunnel

sists of three claims, Mabel, Doctor
and Lawyer. The lead on which the
locations are made is a strong well-
defined body of quartz, about 14 feet in
width. The location is an excellent
one for a mine���easy to work and surrounded by abundance of, wood and
water. Some high-grade galena ore is
exposed in an open cut, but the main
development -nork consists df a tunnel, which has been driven for 90 feet.
It was apparently intended tliat this
tunnel ahould follow the wall of the
lead, but instead of doing this soma
mistake has beeu made, and it will be
necessary to crosscut to reach ths
lead in order to test it at that distance
The lead has a strike of 20 degreea
west of north. This property will
probably carry its value in gold, as
the rock* seems strongly impregnated
with nrsenical pyrites (mispickle). We
are informed that the assays run $5 to
(8 in gold and if that is maintained
the property should he a valuable ono
as it possesses every facility for cheap
mining. Tho vein carrying the galena
is apparently a stringer of this main
load and has a strike of 5S west of
north, with a dip of 76 to the north.
The galena from thia cross-lead ran
$86 in silver. Another lead of similar
dimensions to the large lead already
mentioned also traverses the property,
forming a parallel system, but it has
not yet been developed to any extent.
Higher up the mountain, on what is
supposed to bo the same vein system,
is the
soi-niKUM cross onour,
which has been operated by Messrs.
Rand Bros. A large amount of development work has been done by way of
tunnelling. The ore is a galena, averaging about 100 in value. Tuis property is now being sold to Euglish
capitalists, who, it is hoped, will do
something towards developing it
and assisting to prove Ihe wealth of
what has every appearance of being a
good mineral country.
Mining Record says: - "Last year. too.
much public interest was Sronsed b.t
the fine showings of properties iu the
Windermere district. A'll these, as
well as many prospects in North East
Kootenay. were visited by Mr, Robertson, and his statements and opinions
regarding them will be of great public
value as relating to sections of the
country of which very little is definitely known."
Mining Recorder Kirkup, of Boss-
land evidently anticipates that the
office of Gold Commissioner is to be
done away with if we may judge ot
the following remarks of his in the
Rossland Miner: ���"As to the gold
commissioneisliip, the only information I have, is that ouly one commissioner is proaiided (or and he is to be
stationed at Atlin. A minister and
deputy minister of mines is provided
[or, and I presume that the work now
done by the gold commissioners will be
done by the department in Victoria. I
do not care to express an opinion as to
whether or not this will lie moro convenient to the people, though I have
heard expressions of opinion that it will
not prove to be more convenient."

James Lewis k Sons, of Liverpool,
report: "Standard Copper has been
sold op to ��75 10s. per ton during the
past fortnight���an advance of 50 per
cent above the average price cl lust
year. This advance in mainly due to
the large consumptive demand for
this metal in the United States and to
the small stock held in Europe.
The effect of this great enhancement
of the cost of this metal is already
visible in contracted Consumption and
stimulated Production. Consumers
will only buy for their immediate
wants, believing that the present high
level of prices cannot be' long maintained. Several rolling miles in South
Wales have ceased to work or will
shortly do so, and some of the wire
drawing mills in Germany are running
on half-time. What the increased pro
duction of the world will be under the
stimulates ot present prices Is at pre
sent difficult to say; hur.
from what we have been able to
gather from different sources it now
promises to be fully 75,000 tons over
tbat of last year. Many of the leading
mining companies are therefore opposed to the present inflation of values, ns
later on they anticipate a still greater
reaction���to he followed by a
lengthy period of low prices and in

The physioian's answer was very much
as follows: Large numbers of sickly
looking and half well people have passed us to-day, which, I am sure has
prompted your question. You must remember that grippo has been epidemic
during the winter, and has left thousands In a sad condition of health; then
there are other common oauses of sickness that have been operating, such as
insomnia, headachea.digestive disturbances, blood troubles, rheumatism, and
kidney and liver ailments. All these
have contributed to sickness and deuths
this year, and thote we have passed

that as a people we are deteriorating in
