A Hocfflsb Paymaster��� Progress of
the Railway Work���Worklac on
(From our own Correspondent.)
The days are lengthening out and
consequently work on right of way
and grade of th. Crow's Nest Pass
Railway Is progressing more so than it
did before the holidays. The different
contractors are sanguine of making a
success of their work and of coming out
ahead; in other words, of making some
money. There is nothing heard here
ol the hardships which tbe man are
report*! to hare undergone east of the
Kootenay Riter last summer and fall.
Men seem satisfied to work all along
the whole line and very little dissatisfaction is expressed. One, and the
only one, instance of ''trying to work
a hardship on your fellow man" came
under my notice, and I feel that I
should report it to you. Th. paymaster, with assistant teamster, and a
Mounted Policeman, with a rifle as
long as a fence rail, passed through
here on Saturday last. At the foot of
Moyie Lake they wore stopped by a
man named Harris, who is living in a
cabin there and engaged in hunting
and trapping. Harris worked in November on the wagon road and the
paymaster had his money for him.
Harris wished to receive it as he was
completely out of funds. One would
naturally suppose he was paid there as
th. Policeman with a big rifle was
protection enough "to guard the treasure box." No. The paymaster told
him that h. would stop at Murdock'a
camp over night and would be leaving
there early next morning���and then
drove on. Harris started to walk after
him and reached Murdock'a camp, 19
miles away, at 9.10 p.m., only to find
that the paymaster had driven ou four
miles further to a place known as the
Logging camp, where he arrived at
10.30, received his few dollars and
started back home. H. travelled 46
miles. What reason had tbe paymaster to compel him to do so?
Cowan * Co., Supt. Thos. O'Neill,
at tunnel north end of Moyie Lake, are
making good progress. They hare
heading started iu south end, and at
north end are facing up tbe rock in
good shape, making everything safe
before starting the heading. MoBeath
& Peters come next and have eight
outs opened up, all working on their
four miles of rock work. Dave Mc-
Beath, of McBeath ft Peters, is the
man who constructed the 80 miles of
wagon road last fall from Kootenay
Lake to Moyie Lake, over which all
th* supplies are being hauled this winter, He had some trouble, and did
considerable persuasion to induce a
party of 50 Montreal Frenchmen to
work on the road on Sundays. The
first Sunday morning came and Dave
shouted "turn out boys." The French
men said it was Sunday and they
would be breaking the commandments
if they worked on Sunday, Dave is a
Presbyterian, and in his young days
observed the Sabbath. But this was
years ago���away down in New Brunswick. He scratched th. bald part of
his head and studied a while. The
Frenchmen thought they should not
work as it was Suuday. The wagon
road had to be built. Finally Dave
���aid, "Do you think you will be damned if you work on Sunday?"
"Sure," one Frenchman said, "the
devil will get us for sure."
'Ok no, boys," Dave said, "there is
DO danger from that quarter; there'
may be a hell and th. devil in Montreal but not here. There is no hell
this side of the Rocky Mountains. The
devil never yet cam. down the Kick-
inghorse River." The whole party
went to work, and whether or not
th.y heard the chimes of Notre Dame
la their slumbers that night no mention was ever made of th. fact.

Permanently Cured.
Attacked With l.��Grippe Which Left

and tbe Sufferer was Discouraged.
From the Journal, Sumnieraide, P. 1.1.
One of the best known men around
Bedique and vicinity is Mr. Alfred
Siihurnia, who has recently removed
to North Carleton. Mr. Schurman was
born in Bedique about 70 years ago.
Some 25 years ago he was sworn in as
Justice of the Peace, and about 21
years ago he was appointed clerk of the
County Court, in both of whioh offices
he has given every satisfaction. Mr
Schurman was also a farmer on a large
scale aid like most men engaged in
that occupation led a busy life, being
compelled to attend strictly to business,
but less than a year ago lie retired
from farming and now lives in a cosy
cottage io North Carleton. Before his
retirement, work such an only a man
engaged in that occupation knows anything about, claimed his attention.
His increasing years made the burden
heavier aud tbe spring work of 189,'J
wore him completely out. This is
what he tells about it, and how he was
cured. "In the springof 18911 the constant toil and diudgery connected
with the work of farming wore mc out
completely, aud the break down was
the more complete because the results
were coupled with the bad effects left
by an attack of la grippe. One of the
results of la grippe was a nasty cough,
another was the complete loss of appetite. My spirits were greatly depressed
and I felt that I had lived out my
days, I always felt cold, and consequently the stove and I were great
friends, but the cold affected more especially my feet and caused me great
annoyance. Added to this complication was a serious kidney trouble
which threatened to prove thn worst
enemy of all. I was unable to do any
work, had no ambition and less
strength, aud was not a bit the hotter
of all tbe doctor's medicine Ihadtakon.
It was my wife who advised me at
last to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
bought six boxes and began taking
them. My hope revived because a
change for the better was so in taking
place, and before they were done 1 was
cured. The six boxes brought back ray
appetite, strength and ambition, in
Short, all that I had lost in the way of
strength and health. The next spring
however my health again gave way
aud I immediately brgan using the
Pink Pills again and I am happy to
say that they effected that time a permanent cure and today I am well and
hearty al if I were only 40. I strongly j
recommend Dr. Williams Pink Pills
to all who are suffering as I was.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of the disease. Tbey
renew and build up the blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from tbe system. Avoid imitations bv insisting that every box you
purchase is enclosed in a wrapping
bearing the full trade mark, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.

Afrit.r ut thu OdilfollotVM Hull.
Donald was en fete on Saturday
night, rhe occasion being tho presentation of an address und gold watch,
chain, and locket, to Dr. Procter,
on the occasion of hjn leaving thu di��-
trict to enter into partnership with
Dr. Furrer, of Kamloops. During his
residence in Donald as C. I\ It. surgeon Dr. Procter has deservedly earned
the high esteem of all who know him.
Especially wa. he valued both as a
medical roan and as a friend by the
people of Donald, with whom ho h;is
been so intimately associated during
tho paet 15 months As a medical
practitioner he has been most -riuccppsfi.il
and what is perhaps more, his prompt
attendance, combined with tho utmost
care and attention, were shown in all
cases wherever he might ho called, It
is no exaggeration to say that ho hud
endeared himself to the pec pie of
Donald, and wherever ho goes Dr.
Procter's sterling qualities must make
him not only a popular pracitionor
but one who will be held in universal
esteem for his worth as a man and as
a citizen. Much regret was expressed
in Donald when it became known that
the doctor was to leave, hut the people
of the town were determined to make
the best of it and to show in no un-
mistakeable manner tho esteem in
which he had been held by them. The
ladies took up the work, and as usual
when ladies take a thing of ihis kind
in hand it was well done. The Ladies Committee consisted of the following: Mesdames, Newman, Hobbs.
Mitchell, Urquhart, Forrest, Angus,
McLean, Dunne and .Miss Jordan. The
Oddfellows Hall was secured, and the
ladies had it beautifully set out for the
occasion. Tho stage was furnished as
a drawing room, and the fire place
scene transported one to the old land
where the yule log and the brick fireside take the place of the Canadian
stave. The Committee of gentlemen
who got up tho address and presentation consisted of the following: Messrs Newman, McMillan, McConnell,
McGlnness, Humphrys, McLeod, King,
Baron and Stirrett. The little affair
wm kept entirely secret and not n soul
knew anything about it excepting those
associated with the arrangmeets. The
first intimation the doctor had of the
pleasing farewell in store for him was
ft polite in^jtatipn which he received
on the Friday to attend ai_ the Oddfellows' Hall on the following evening.
There was such an air of mystery
about tho matter that tho doctor
sought out his friend and counsellor,
Mr. McGinnes.s, and asked him what
was ou at the hall, to which that
wary politician aud deploutatist replied that it was "just a Lario hop."
The doctor said he did not know that
dauce, but was assured by Mr. MoGin*
ness that it was very simple nnd he
would soon pick it up and be able to
do his part allrlgbt, Rumor dos-s not
say whether the doctor looked up the
latest edition of the "Ballroom Guide"
to ascertain the steps in (hi*? new and
mysterious dance, but he determined
to face the music and when he turned
up at the Hall on the Saturday night
he was greeted with throe hearty
cheers, called for by Mr. W. G. Neilson, J. P. The hall was crowded and
f everybody in Donald was not there,
even to the babies, there must have
been very few left to look after the home.-.
Tables laden with all sorts of good
things, provided by the ladies, were
spread about the hall, nnd near those
the children crowded in expectancy,
The school children, in whom Dr.
Procter took a great interest, were
present in full force and.helped with
the programme, singing the doctors
favorite chorus, "Tho Land of the
Maple." Mr- King presided and he
was supported on the platform by tho
following, together with the guest of
the evening: Sheriff Redgrave, Rpv. |
Mr. Turner, Messrs. G. E. Smith.
Burns, Haggen and Newman.
While expressing regret nt the occasion which called them together, th*
chairman congratulated them on the
eicellent gathering- Ho said he voiced
the sentiment of the community when
lie expressed regret at Dr. Procter hav-'
ing to leuve them (cheers).
The following musical programme j
was then gono through: Instrumental;
duet, Messrs. Humphreys (piano) and
Karon (violin); piano solo, Mr. Hum.]
plireys;   duet,     "Larboard    Watch,'' I
Messrs. McMillan & Karon; solo,
"Tho Stow-a-Way," Mrs. Frasor;
violin nolo, Mr. Baron; chorus
by school        children, "Our
Mountain Hoiusj" solo, "The Sweetest Song of All," Mrs. Fritter;
violin solo hy Mr. Barou; chorus,
"The Land of the Maple," by the
school child run; duet, "la tlm Star-
j light." by Messrs. Baron and McMillan! Chinese song, by Dr. Thorn.
The   chairman   then   read  a letter
from   Mr. Ducheancy,   Superintendent
Pacific   Division,  acknowledging   tho
invitation   to   be  present, and adding
j "you may assure your committee tint
; 1 contemplate with pleasure a tangible
1 proof of the esteem in  which   he   (l)r,
! Procter) has been held by all."
Messrs. McMillan and Newman then
] stepped to the from and called on tho
I doctor, to whom the former gentleman
read an-l presented tho following illuminated address, handsomely framed;
|"A. P. Procter. Esq., M. D., 0. M:
j Dhar .Sir, ���We, the citizens of
Donald and employees of the Selkirk
section of the Canadian Pacific Kailway. beg yon to accept the accompanying tekori of the high esteem iu which
you are held by us and our families.
Wo wish it to testify tn our appreciation of tho efficient, faithful and self-
denying manner in which you have
performed the duties devolving upon
you us medical officer of this section.
"We wish moreover thus to signify
our appreciation of the kindness you
have shown us apart from your work,
and of the interest you have taken in
all public affairs. You bnva moved
yourself to he not only einVJeiit and
faithful in your professional duties,
but also to be a thorough geufle:' an
and trot friend to all. Wo feol, indeed,
the value of the example ytni havn
set in uprightness and unselfisl ..-v.-,
"While wo regret that yoi, r.re r bout
to sever your connection with r-. we
wish you all prosperity and happum?*-
iu your new sphere of labor and where
ever you may he.
"In the behalf of the citizens and
employees, "W. NEWMAN,
"Jno. McMillan ''
The address was tho work of Mr.
King, who executed it very cleverly,
lha border showing a railway track
and telegraph line-, with a chain, the
links of which represented every station on the Selkirk division.
Mr. Newman then presented the doctor with a handsome gold watch,
chain and locket, iho watch bearing
i!i�� Joii:i>,-\ monogtnm and rho following inscription: "1898, Presented to
A. P. Procter by the citizens of Donald
and C.P.R. employees, Selkirk section."
In acknowledging the presentation
Dr. Procter said ho hardly know how
to thank them for their kindness to
him that night, and their kindness to
him since hft came in their midst, lo
months ago. That had made his work
pleasant among them. Onu thing
about his profession was the opportunity of doing good and he i href ore
thought it the (incut of the professions.
He quoted O'iver Wendell Holmes on
the professions. If they had felt his
work should have been done hotter he
would like ihem to believe he felt it
more keenly than they. As to' tho
children he was sorry to leave them.
The population depended ou what the
children were, and ho had endeavored
to get them to take an interest in thoir
work. A consolation to him was thnt
he was not going very far away. In
leaving them in the hands of Dr. Cross
he was leaving them in the hands of
one who would serve them well and I e
asked them to extend to his successor some of kindness they had shown
him (cheers).
Mr. Burns, Inspector of schools, and
au old friend of Dr. Procter, made a
humorous speech, stating the Dr. had
once taught school at Alberiji, and us
the teacher of a village school required
to be an exceptional man, one of patience and tact.nodoubt that was why he
made such a successful doctor (cheers).
Shoi iff Redgrave also spoke of the
doctor's kindness and attention.
The ladles then handed round refreshments, nnd this over Mr. Haggen
proposed a hearty thanks to the ladies,
those who had assisted iu the pro*
gramme and to the ohaiiiuan. These
were carried hy ncclamation, after
which the audience fang the National
Anthem. This was Ldlmved hy "For
he's a j.Ily good fellow." and with
three heuVty cheer.', for the d��.otor and
many wishes of "God speed" the large
gathering dispersed,

Gilded reports, coast newspaper
booming, transportation company lies,
have so painted the Yukon as a laud
of oold that scores of thousands ot
people are preparole; to flock in there -
some never to come back, most to wish
they had never gone. We recently
published a report by a reliable man,
Mr. McGillivray, of New York, showing that tbo Yukon is not what it is
represented to be. The Mining a'ndEngineering Journal publishes a report
endorsing Mr. MeGillivray's. For tlie
benefit of our readers who are Yukon
struck we re-nublibh the most important features of this report:���
'There are many disappointed,heart
sick men working on the dumps here,
Winding on a windlass, exposed to the
rigors of the climate, and with the
thermometer standing at from 35 degrees to dO degrees below zero���and
tlicro is worse to come ���who had been
advised not to attempt the trip. And
yet they are here, and whilo they tell
yon tiieir troubles and figure out liow
s mill, after all, is the remuneration at
Sl.oO per hour,���and the average,
wages hove are 81.25, while many are
working for their 'grub' for six or
seven hours a day. they urge the writer to advise others to stay away. It
is feared here that there will be anothe.'
rush���many are perhaps already on
the way. Nothing but disappointment and loss await those who coine.
The mining district known as the
Klondike region comprises only two
oreeks that are known to bo rich ���
Bonanza and its tributary, Eldorado.
Everv claim on the creek-bed. us well
us all tbo bench claims, have been lo.-
catod. Not all the claims even on
these two creeks are known to be rich
enough to pay the expenses of mining
thein at the present rate ot wages
which are, after all, only sufficient lo
rich. Some of those ou Eldorado will
yield perhaps ��500,000 each, whilo
others adjoining them will not pay for
the working. The same is true of
Bonanza. There are many other creeks
hereabout, every one of which, lying
within a radius of 50 miles, has been
staked from mouth tosoiirce.nndininany
cases to a point beyond the summit of
slope from which they run. There is,
therefore, absolutely no chance for
prospecting or locating in thisdistrict.
It will he necessary for anyone coining
lo this country io prospect in other
districts, and with very little chame
of success, for there are hundreds of
men who have spent anywhere from
three to 15 years in the Yukon districts prospecting for the gold which
is said to be there, and who aro still
looking with longing eyes for the fortune for which they have hoped so
long. When men who wero within 50
miles of Dawson when this strike was
made are still without the means to
buy food for tho winter, how can a
man 5,000 miles from hero hope to
pick up a rich claim in tho Klondike
region?   Thero aro many such here,   I
caunot, knowing as much as I   do   of
the  country,   use    language   strong
enough or convincing enough   to   advise those who are thinking of coming
to tins desolate country to give np the
notion      No matter how discouraging
may bo the outlook at   home,   I   can
assure the. reader thnt there me   more
avenues through   wdiich   to   make   a
living, and perhaps a comfortable fortune at home than are presented by the
seeming   rich   Klondike.     There .ore
hundreds of men hero today who mortgaged their littlo homes and loft   wife
d childeru poorly   provided   for   in
order to raise tho neocssary money   to
make the trip to a land which promises
so much..     They spent every cent   of
that money,   which   represented   the
labor and savings of years,   in gettin
over the Sknguny and Dyea trails, and
bore up under hardships of which they
would not have   thought   themselves
capable, in the hope   of   getting possession nt the last of a rich   claim   ill
this region, where they had heard that

The Government also promises aid to
the dairy industry, and it might well
have gone further and offered to provide cheap capital to aid the farmers
developing' the agricultural resources of the Province. The speech
concludes by calling on Divine Providence to aid the Legislature in their
efforts but we imagine that Divine
Providence iriuai be so thoroughly disgusted with a partnership with the
Turner-Poolay crowd that He will
rather leave them t'o continue their
alliance with his Satanic majesty until

placed in 'he hands of men who will

It gives natural, healthy vigor and elastic endurance to the organs specially concerned in motherhood. It makes the

painless, It gives nerve-strength to the
mother and vital hardihood to the child.
It i'j the only medicine devised by au
educated ph'ysidan specially to overcome
all weaknesses mid diseases of the feminine organs. Its sale is greater than the
combined sales of all other medicines for
women. This fact shows the unbounded
confidence which women place in Dr.
i'icrce. He has been for nearly thirty
years chief consulting physician of the
Invalids' Hotel aud Surgical Institute, of
Huffalbi N. Y. During this time he has
achieved a world-wide reputation for hid
successful treatment of the most obstinate* ailments peculiar to women.

Victoria was en fete at the opening
of the Provincial Legislature last
weak, the principal feature of the occasion being the opening of the neu
Parliament Buildings. The buildings
are there now and the mischief cnntiot
be undone, but wo do say that it
a grossly scandalous piece, of public
administration that nearly a million
of money should hare been spent on
fine public buildings in a Province that
is in the infancy ot its development,
and where every dollar ot the public
revenue is required for the construction of roads, trails, and bridges for
opening up the country. The Governor's speech refers to the expansion
of the revenue and to the benefits that
will accrue to the Province from the
Yukon gold discoveries. In this connection a measure is promised to assist
in providing an all-Canadian route to
the Yukon. Measures are also promised
to improve transportation facilities for
the development of the mineral resources of the Province. The construction
of tho.Crow's Nest Railway is next referred to and the Legislature is congratulated on the result of tho efforts
made by it for the construction of ihis
road. Of course it would have beou
out of place in this sbeeah to tell us
also of the efforts made by members of
the legislature to feather their own
nests in connection with this road, but
the electors pretty well understand all
about that without any further explanations from a gubernatorial source.
The speech then assures us that negotiations are in progress for the construction of the Vancouver and Eastern
Railway, which is in reality a short
line from Kootenay to the coast. This
is of course a necessary and imporaut
work which we should imagine the
whole Province would like to see carried out if reasonable arrangements
ca,i b�� made.    We

THE GULDEN  ERA,  FfilDAY.   FEBRUARY   is.  1895.
The Inland Sentinal says: "Our attention has been called to the unsatisfactory manner iu which freight from
points east of Donald for points on
the Pacific Division is being handled
nowadays. It seems that since the traffic management of the Pacific division
passed more or less under the control of
the Winnipeg offiice things have not
been running very smoothly at this
end. The internal business arrange-
of the Canadian Pacfic Railway Company are, of course, no concern of the
publio's unless these arrangments work
out to their disadvantage as appears to
be the case in this instance If we
understand the situation right the
Pacific division is being "starved,"
possibly to make a better showing, for
the Western division, but however
that may be the result is unsatisfactory to the public. In the interests of
business men, to whom prompt delivery
of freight means very much, we hope
the Canadian Pacific Hallway officials
will endeavor to improve matters in
this connection."

A Vancouver telegram says: "There
is a mad Mann in Vancouver. The
prospective contractor of the Canadian
Yukon railway cannot get his men
through to Wrangel. "I cannot get
steamers," he said, "to carry my men
and supplies to Wrangel. If the steamship companies will place themselves
at my disposal I will give thein anything they ask. They don't know
their business. I go to prepare a way
for thoso very prospectors, who when
they get to Wrangel might find a
sleigh road built for them, Mann is
chaffing like a lion in bondage. He
wants to get 5,000 men to Wrangel,
and although live steamers are leaviug
here a week thero is not room in them
for half a dozon men that has not been
engaged for in advance."
The Eamloops Sentinel says: "Dissatisfaction exists throughout tho

sent out from Winnipeg, Port Arthur

which could have been filled quite efficiently by men who for years, past
have been working on the Pacific division. Men whoso services have entitled thorn to promotion have in this
way been passed over in favor of new
I men from the east. All the prizes, so
to say, of  this   divisions,   are   going
I to men from eastern divisions, on the
face of it a very unfair condition of
things, though possibly there may be
some reasonable explanation for the
course pursued."

It is refreshing to find Such a prominent and respected clergyman as
Rev. Mr. Elliott taking so pronounced
a step as ho has done, in publicly re-
oommending Dodd's Kidnoy Pills. His
experience with this wonderful medicine is exactly BlnUarto that of Aurora
people. There is no medicine to be procured that can approach Dodd's Kid
ney Pills, which never fail to cure.
Bright's Disease and Diabetes, so
long said to be incurable, are cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, as easily as a
puff of wind blows out a candle flame.
They havo been used in this town by
scores of people who were given up to

It is the duty of every man to lighten the sufferings of his fellows as
much as possible, and for that reason,

A telegram from Tacoma states that
on December 15 last bench claims
were discovered on Six Hill, above
Eldorado in the Klondike. A stampede followed and many claims were
taken up. Not far away, and 200 feet
higher up the Eldorado Creek still another bench has been staked out. It is
said ono claim owner there opened a
rich pocket not over 10 feet square
from which he has taken $8,000.
Referring to Mr. Carlyle's proposed
amondment of the Mineral Act, the
Nelson Tribune says: "While there is
support for this measure in the Slocan, yet the general opinion is strong'
ly averse to having the present law
governing the point in question altered. As is well known, there are
certain sections at the heads of various creeks that aro seldom free of 6now
for a period longer than six weeks or
two months, and it would keep a man
hustling to get a claim staked and
work commenced within the proposed
time, let alone finishing it, were he fortunate in finding a ledge the first dsy
he was out and the snow were to keep
off. Were a claim staked in November or December, it would not permit
of sufficient time for the assessment to
be done ere it would lapse. While the
working of the present act insy be
cumbersome to a certain extent, it permits of more freedom to the prospector
than the proposed change would allow.
Better leave well enough alone."

The unhealthy
.man may gain the
pity and even the admiration of men and
women, but it is a question whether such a
man ever thoroughly gains their respect.
The man whose arteries bound with the
rich, red blood of health carries with him a
force and an intensity that command respect, even though he be slightly inferior
mentally to the weak, nervous man. While
no medicine in the world will add an inch
to a man's statere, there is one famous
medicine that will fill the veins and arteries with tbe rich, red, bounding blood of
perfect health. It is Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. It is the great blood-
maker and blood-purifier. When the blood
is pure and rich and red aud plenty, and
filled with the life-giving elements that
nourish every tissue of the body, it is impossible for a man to suffer from ill-health
of any description. When every little
blood-vessel in the lungs quivers with the
rush of healthy blood, it is impossible to
have unhealthy lungs. When the walls of
the stomach are nourished with healthy
blood, dyspepsia and Indigestion are impossibilities. When the liver Is supplied
with healthy blood it is bound to be active.
The skin that is nourished with healthy
blood will be clear and fresh and glow with
health.   " Discovery " is sold by druggists.
