tho heart and pocket of the people of
Kootenay ie the question of lead
duties. Thero are scvcial propositions
submitted by which it is proposed >o
overcome the villainous U. S. discriminatory tariff, by which tho Canadian
producer ti r jbbed of a large part of
the price of his lead product for the
benefit of the American smelter combine. Ouo proposal is to place
prohibitive export duty on lead, which
will compel the smelting of lead oro in
Canada. Another proposal is to place
a good sti(I import tax on lead pro
ducts, which would keep foreign smelters from disposing of their product

C. P. Jt. linos of Railway, Golden
holds a commanding position. It ts

There appears to be little doubt that
the Windermere district is going to
prove a rich mineral country, though
so far it has to be admitted development has Leen disappointing. But tbe
owners of the Paradise have at last
proved that they bave a valuable property ami that once proved, there is
not a shadow of a doubt but that tbere
will be others found to equal if not
surpass tbe Paradise. What is wanted
Is a smelter iu North East Kootenay
and If some enterprising firm would
take hold of the Golden smelter and
thus give local mine-Owners a market
for ores convenient to tbeir properties
by which the heavy charges of trans*
portation could bs lost-ened, we believe
ths mining industry of North Eust
Kootenuy would make great strides.
As a town Golden would be the distributing centre .for such a great field
of industry and would beuetit much by
the progress cf the Windermere or any
other section of the distriot,The climate
of Golden fs exceptionally fine, making
it ft nice place for people to life and
Oaks their homes, and ono of the
main reasons why Golden has not gone
fthead move from a reft ids rit ial point of
view has been the difficulty fa getting
house accommodation.
The Lardeau Eagle remarks:���''Be
the present Provincial Government's
faults what they .may, ono thing is
obvious; tbe mining resources, and
other special inducements to investors
of British Columbia eve being brought
to the notico of tlte outsido world."
Wo congratulate Mr, Galllhet oi be-
jng returned ns member for Yalo-Carrl-

good work for the electors whom he
has been chosen to represent- Ic ti a
ous efforts of the Conservative party
to again pain a footing in these scats.
It is good news to learn that the
Greot Northern is pushing a line north
to connect with the Crow's Ne<t Coal-
fields. This is doubtless the nucleus of
tbe line which Jim Hill tins in view to
build up through tlie Columbia Valley,
aud follow tho Fraser and other rivers
to the Yukon country with a view to
ultimately connecting with the Russian transcontinental line and thus place
Europe and Asia in direct railway
communication. This is ono of the
greatest railway enterprises projected)
The elections now completed show a
remurkable success for the Liberal*,
who carried the.polls by a majority of
,000 votes over tbe whole Dominion.
In Ontario, out of a vote of 391,000
votes for both parties, the Conservatives had about 4,000 more vo.tes than
the Liberals j in Quebec thov Liberals
have a straight.majority of 30,2p; in
Nova Scotia the Liberal majority is
9,648; New. Brunswick, gives the
Government a majority of 8,002; in
Now that the Dominionolections arc
over, and the Dominion and Provincial
legislatures will shortly bo meeting, it
will bewell that tho Board of Trade
backed np by the people of Golden,
should take action to have lho requisite
votes placed on the estimates of each
Parliament for tho improvement of the
LKjcking-horso river befoie another
winter sets in. A good deal has already
been done in tho matter, an.l it appears
from the correspondence that has pas
sed that both governments are willing
to do their share of tin- work. The
Golden Board of Ti:ade l.as been very
much alive to tho matter tho past
and now is the im* far ibis holy to

Roads for Windermere.
J. E. Griffith, C. ��,, has done some
splendid work in connection with T.
H. Taylor, C. E., in tho Windormoro

quarters of a mile of up - grade

covers only tbree quarters of a mile in
all at different points. Thu grade over
these three quarters '.I a mile In no
case exceeds the hardly perceptible ono
of two per cent, so that an ideal road
has been built as fur as it has gone.
This road has been built during tbe
past season a distance of 11J miles

somewhat   sharp   comment   on   the
omission of several ladies' names from

as reported tn the Calgary Herald.     I
chink  this criticism was made rather
hastily and was by no moans in  goo
taste.    As most of ihe Golden peoph

If ever 1 have the pleasure of playing at a bull in Goldeu again, I hope
