time that an effort was made to push

deal about "tba construction of railways to open up ihe Cariboo and Cassiar districts. We think the provincial government could not do better

We are glad to see that the Liberals
are livening up at Fort Steele. A
meeting was convened the other night
to organize for the provincial elections.
It would be a great improvement to
the town of Golden if the street from
th* school house to the bridge conld be
straightened a bit. To do this it
would be necessary to purchase a
small portion of the frontage of the
lota owned by Messrs. J. C. Greene
and C. A. Warren, but the cost of
compensation is imply juatified by the
benefit to the railway frontage of the
town. Here is som* work for the
town board.

It is high time that the provincial
government took steps to provide new
public offices at Revelstoke. Tbe present offices are a discredit to the town
and to Ibe government who own them.
Tha prospects of tbe Dominion Parliament being prorogued in June are
slim. Tbe Premier and Sir Charles
Tupper agreed to drop everything except the tariff, estimates and prohibition plebiscite, but now the Liberal
members insist on the programme of

Th* selection of W. C. Wells, of
Palliser, as the Liberal candidate for
the coming provincial elections is very
popular, and we hear a generally expressed opinion that he is likely to
have a walk over. Mr. Wells is a
good all round man and would, we
are sure, do yeoman service as repre-
sentntive of East Kootenay.
Golden it regarded at the present
time m one of the most promising centres in East Kootenay, Situated in
the heart of a rich mining country,
and at the junction of traffic between
the Upper Columbia valley and the
railway, it cannot fail to become an
important business and residential
point. There will be Immense traffic
between Golden and Fort Steele this
Som* year* ago Dr. Dawson, who
know* thoroughly th* geography ot
Britiah Columbia, expressed tha opinion that the Columbia valley along
th* foot of the Rocky Mountains was
the natural highway for opening np
��he eastern portion of Britiah Columbia. According to thia eminent
anthority the valley extends for 700
���jijlea from the boundary to tbe Peace
There la a want of publio confidence
in tbe Government Assay Department
that ought to be remedied. We have
met aeveral miners who have expressed their regret that they could not
send their specimens and particulars
to th* Government Assay Office for
fear of these being divulged to parties
who would take steps to jump or
secure the ground. How far these
complaints are justified w* do not
know, but there is evidently cause for
complaint and the cause should be
remedied. We acquit Mr. Carlyle of
any blame, for we are sure tbat he is
a mas of the most sterling integrity
and that be could never be party to
anything ot the kind, or permit it with
hia knowledge. Tbe Government Assay Office should be a place of inviolable eecrecy, possessing the full confidence of th* miner and prospector.

He Writes a  Latter of More Than
Usual Interest to Suffering
At Wilberfpree, Ohio, three miles
north of Xenia And near Dayton and
Springfield, is located Wilberforce
"University and Payne Theological
These two institutions of learning
have educated many ministers and
In this somewhat noted educational
centre resides Bishop Benjamin W.
Arnett, D. D., a divine who is of
especial prominence because of bis
thrilling eloquence, with which he
has ewayed many audiences.
Among the high officials of the
church, bo one is more distinguished
than he.
Before being elected bishop he was a
. leading  minister  in his church and
also a very prominent Republican. He
represented 'hia  county in  the Ohio
Legislature for several years.
Having  given  this  sketch of the
bishop, the following testimonial from
him  will be  found  very interesting
reading and fullv explaina itself.
To whom it may concern:
"In April, 1894, while on my way
home from Philadelphia I caught a
���very severe cold, which soon developed
into rheumatism. It _was. impossible
Ior me to lest by day or sleep by night.
About the first of June I was compelled to take to my bod, where I remain*
��d for some time. When I was able
to get up I conld only get about by
the uae of crutches.
"The fall came on and the rheumatism grew worse, laating all through
the winter of '94 and '95. I suffered
aa I never suffered before. I thought
tbat the spring would bring me relief,
but it did not, consequently I was
forced to cancel a number of engagements to apeak.
"One day in June, 1896, my wife
said, 'Bishop, I read ao much about
Dr. Williame' Pink Pills, suppose you
try them and see if they will not help
"I aaid, 'No, there is no use of getting them for we have tried almoat
everything that has been recommended
to us, and none of the remedies suggested seem to help my cue.'
"She said no more, but went to
Xenia, Ohio, and bought a box ol the
pills. On her return she gave me a
dose at noon, and another at night.
She was only called one time to attend
to ma during that night.
"For months previous ahe had been
���called three or four times during the
night. Tbe next day I took three
doaes of tho pills, and the second night
I was not disturbed. My wife, for the
first time in more than 10 months,
had a good night's sleep.
"I have not lost a night's sleep
.since that time on account of tbe rheumatism. I carry.a box of Dr. William's Pink Pills in my pocket wherever 1 io.
"I  obeer fully bear  testimony and
hops that others may find relief aa I
did.   I  have recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to several people.
"Youts for G<yl and Man.

Dr.   Williams'   Pink  Pills cure bv
going to the root of the disease. They
renew and build up the blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from the system. Avoid imitations by inaisting tbat every box

Memorial Service
A ' large congregation gathered in
the Methodist church on Sunday last,
when a memorial service was conducted by the pastor, wbo took for his
text the words "We must needs all
die." The Rev. G. E. Osborne proceeded to show that although to most
people life was a mystery, death was
greater mystery, coming as it did in
the case of their beloved brother Hood,
with a suddenness which they could
not understand, and then there was
its certainty, that no matter what our
life was, or what plans for the future,
they must all fall beneath its mighty
power. Still ihey hnd cause to rejoice
that while death was sure, eternal life
might be obtained by trusting in the
Lord Jesus Christ. At the close the
congregation snug "Abide with me"
with a sincerity that waa felt by everv
a a
Favorite, for Long Tear.
Ear long years Diamond Dyes have
been the favorite family dyes in the
Dominion of Canada; and although
imitation package dyes have been
plentifully offered for sale, their great
inferiority to the 'Diamond" in
strength, foatneas, beauty of color and
hillinncy was known to the great majority of women, and they were condemned and avoided by all who valued
good and bright colors. No sensible
woman oan afford to riak her goods
with poor dyes when the ''Diamond"
are admittedly the world's best.
A most important point to remember
is thst the Diamond Dyes cost no
more than|tbe crude and common dyes
sold by Borne dealers for the sake of
large profits.
Ask your deslsr for ths "Diamond";
if hs values yonr trade he will be in a
position to supply you. 16
Visit of Bishop Durieu
His Lordship Bishop Durieu, of

Miss Louisa Kenny and that in French

girls accomplished the task entrusted
to them very nicely with great credit.
Tbe fallowing is the address in
"My Lord,���We feel most happy ts
express to you our gratitude for your
first pastoral visit to this far portion
of your diocese. You see us happy
around you and ready to receive your
spiritual advice and paternal blessing.
You will be pleased to know that our
little congregation has lately been in*
ores aed by a few new comers and we
hope we will soon see it as numerous
as a few years ago. Then, with the
blessing of God, we will be able to accomplish much for the honor of our
Mother Church and your diocess."
The address in French was in similar terms.
On Sunday morning Choral Episcopal Mass waa celebrated at the Catholic church by Rev. Father Peytavin,

His Lordship left on Monday for St.
Eugene Mission,  travelling by road,
and   was  accompanied by the Revs.
Fathers Coccola and Welch.

to what has already been said in favor
of Paine's Celery Compound. Por a
very long time I suffered from general
debility and run down system. Having heard of Paine's Celery Compound
I determined to give it a trial, and I
am happy to say it has done for me
more good than I can express For 10
years I doctored with other medicines
without sny good results; but after
using Paine's Celery Compound I am
perfectly restored to health, can eat
well, digestion is good, and my Bleep
