[From Our Own Correspondent.!
Fort Stbri.e, September 25.���The
principal event in the history ol Fori
Steele thia week was the visit ot Hewitt Bostock, M. P. He arrived on
Monday afternoon and that night a
banquet was tendered him at the Central Hotel by the Board ol Trade of
this town. This (east, the first of its
kind given here, is memorable alike
for its social and culinary success and
for tho heartv eo-operatlon of both
political parties in paying their re-
peel to their worthy representative.
The dividing lines of last June twelve
months, and all political differences,
were swept aside for once, and all
joined hands to do honor to their
At the head of the banquet table sat
R. L. T, Galbraith Esq; to his right
Mr. Bostock,and to bis left F. P. Nor
bury, President of the Liberal Association of Fort Steele, while the rice
chair was becomingly filled by J. A
Harvey. Chairman of the Board. The
customary toasts and responses, interspersed with songs from 0. A. Mcintosh, the sweet singer ot Fort Steele,
and others, succeeded the destruction
of the viands, and the singing of "Go.l
save the Queen" by everybody
brought tbe happy event to a olose.
nit. bostock's nomas and sayinos
The following day Mr, Bostock, in
company with Indian Agent Gal
braith, visited the Dominion Government Industrial School for Indian
children at Mission, ami in the evening addressed a large gathering of the
citizeni of Fort Steele and adjoining
districts in the Coventry Opera House
here. Mr. Bostock wns listened to
with much attention, and repeatedly
applauded throughout his address, and
loudly cheered at the end.
Having visited the Invicta Hydraulio mine on Wild Horse, he took bis
departure to Cranbrook ami Moyie,
thence to Wardner aud on tu Kr.llis
pel, Mont., where be would tako the
train for West Kootonay en route to
his own home.
Ths eveut which in the minds of
some wss even to transcend that of
Mr. Bostock's visit was the anxiously
looked for coming of certain railway
luminaries, to wit Colllngwood Scbri-
eber, Deputy Minister of Rnilwajs
and Canals, and M. J. Haney, Great
Mogul of the C. N. R. construction.
When they would appear was even beyond the astute reckoning of the Prospector, lor these terrestrial bodi. s are
considered somewhat erratic in their
movements, and it ia sal I there is a
Joshua that at any moment may com
mand them to stand still. However
couriers were daily arriving from the
east who reported having seen or
heard of their gradual approach. The
rate of their movements was noted,
tbe distance to be travelled compared,
aud the time of arrival at Fuit Steele
dettnitly calculated to be "Dinner,
Thursday September 23, 1897." Too in-
indefinite! Too indefinite! '���When
do theae railway comets dine?"
"Whenever tbey are hungry" replies
one. ''At 1 o'clock p.m.'' says another. "No sensible man would take
dinner at such an hour, but in the
cool of the evening shades. The atmosphere is sufficient to Inflate the
stomach." remarks a third. Tis 11.30
a.m. the atmosphere seems to grow
hot, large drops of sweat are observed
on Venosta's brow. Crowds gather on
the sbady side of the street and in
breathless silence await, as though it
were the coming of doom. With ana-
loos look they ask "Whence will they
come���by way of Wardner or descend
they from the clouds?" A sentinel is
posted on Nigger's back, a mile without the town. One dare-devil climbs
tbe slender dag pole that tops the Coventry Opera House. Hark, the shout!
���They come, they comet" as the well
known tramp of Nigger's feet are
beard upon the bridge, Far down the
Wardner trail, in a pillar of cloud
ol dust, Is seen their chariot our. Then
there was hurrying to and fro. Galbraith donned his stoutest coat of
mail; Venosta wiped away the perspiration, tightened up his belt aud
took another reef lo the bottoms of his
pant.; Harvey called together the
members of the Board of Trade tn the
quiet seclusion of the Prospector's
sanctum; Dr. Watt ordererd the ambulance to be tn readiness and the oper
ating table removed to the Prospector's
book yard; a host of would be tie contractors took up their positions in
door ways snd other points of vantage
along the supposed line of march;
Rosa was in the aet ol making inspection Irom a legal standpoint, and seeing that everything waa in statutory
array, when whirr-r-r, whip stiaj,
bang.the chariot ascended the hill and
drew up tn front of Carlin A Durlok's
Store; accompanying Mr. Schrieber
was Deputy Minister ol Justice New-
combe, while It. J. Haney was at*

struotiou P.O. Nash, and Asalataut.
Chief Engineer McLeod and two
beautiful young satellites in the persons of hie own two daughters.   Here
the party was joined by Chief Engineer Lumsden. Taking the sidewalks
in the middle of the street, for which
Fort;. Steele is noted, the constellation
moved in the direction of the Central
Hotel. Everybody looked. Who
would be the "first to beard the lion?"
All in a tried the towering form of the
vigilant Venosta was seen to stride
into the middle of tbe street frantically waving a flag of truce. He accosted Mr. Haney, who slightly dropped behind, when the following short
but significant dialogue and dumb charade took place that so often gives the
pusher ot the quill a "tip":--
Venosta-"Aw! Mr. H.ney I perceive!"
Haney���(A sido-lon. glance in silence.) |
Venosta���"I nm Mr. Venosta, mining, financial and real estate broker,
sole agon: for the townsite of Fort
Steele, with ollices in Toronto, Mo i-
treal, St. Paul, New York, London
an I Kallispel. ami have the honor tn
bo the ser-nttiry to the Fort Steele
Board of Trade."
Haney���"Ob, yes,I remember name.
I have received some letters from you
ro the Crow's Nest Railroad "
Ven.���**The Board ot Trade through
me, their humble servant, requests an
interview this alt. moon in the sanctum sanctorum of the Prospector
Hun, ���"Have noiimefor interviews
today! Am going right out to Moyie."
Ven. (in blank surprise) - "Awl
Surely not, Mr. Haney! I really
thought you would remain a week
with us at least."
, Han. "A week, a week! My dear
Mr, Venosta, no sane man would stop
a week in Fori Steele!"
Ven. (recovering from the thrust
and alone in the street) - "Humph, an
ignorant (ellow, you know!"
When the bird last saw Venosta he
was going in the direction of Dr.
Watt's office, presumably for an examination of his cranium. But the
duntor uuy. Venosta is s'l right.
In a somewhat similar manner to
the above did Mr. Hunev dispose of
several interceptions.
But Mr. Schrieber was not so fortunate, lie got a pretty tight squeeze.
Ue had been invited into the Prospector's office where be was confronted by
the majesty ot the Board of Trade
and menaced by the Editor's newly
sharpened pencil. Here Mr. Galbraith,
a skilled and wiry diplomat, wrestled
him With the spirit and tenacity of a

to convey to the Hon.) Mr. Blair tbe

The country ought to force on the
Turner Government the necessity of
providing a redistribution ol seats before next election. We believe they
will do nothing unless their hands are
forced, knowing that a policy of masterly inactivity is the one means by
which they can retain the reins of
power for tbeir own corrupt purposes. The population of the mainland has enormously increased since the
last election and if redistribution takes
place on a fair basis it means that the
balance of power will be removed from
tbe island to the mainland, and it is
time it was. West Kootenay particularly is entitled to increased representation and it would seem as if East
Kootenay should also have another
member. We suggest that the best
way ol forcing the Government's
hands in tbe matter would be by holding public meetings in the various
centres and passing resolutions demanding that redistribution should be
one of the first measures to be brought
before the next session of Parliament.
age into the ears of passers-by we
think it is time the police and the
Gold Commissioner took some steps to
protect the publio from such scandals.
We never could see the necessity of
granting a license to this house.
There were enough bars to supply the
requirements ot the publio, and if
more accommodation was wanted it
was in the direction of board and
lodging. We hope the Gold Commissioner will do his duty in regard to a
matter that has been a common subject of complaint for weeks past.
The time has oome when the town
Golden might well be incorporated,
and have its own government, and
expenditure of its own revenue. The
question of lighting tbe town must
soon come up for consideration snd we
would rather see electric lighting in
the hands of the corporation that any
private individuals or company. Then
there are the questions of beautifying
and improving the town, which under
the Provincial administration are
neglected. This and other work of
value could be taken up If the town
were incorporated and had its own administrative body. Another thing
that incorporation would do is to
cause the people of Golden to take a
greater interest in publio affairs which
at tbe present time are utterly neglected.
We have something for you
for the next two weeks.

An institution lhat tbe Mines
Department of British Columbia ought
to take into consideration is the establishment ol Schools of Mines. British
Columbia must depend mainly for the
present ou the development of her
vast mineral resorcea, and the proper
way to get the most benefit from these
is by affording miners and prospectors,
and the young men growing up
throughout the country, the greatest
facilities for acquiring the best knowledge as to mining. In connection
with schools ot mines tbe exper.s employed should visit the different centres during the winter months and
open laboratories and give lectures.
This would prove a means lor tbe men
who have each winter to seek the
refuge ot tbe towns to employ their
time profitably and help themselves in
their prospecting work aa well as iu
developing the resources of the country
in the best possible way.
We recently stated that the Government of V, C. had so squandered the
publio franchises that we should next
find somebody wanting a charter over
the nir. We notice from the Gazette
that a company has been organised to
be called the "Kootenay Air Co." This
company has not yet applied for a
charier to bottle up the air and retail
It at 10 cents a puff, but we quite believe that it the company wanted suoh
a franchise the Turner Government
would willingly help It out on tbe
chance of a commission on the sales.

Mr. Brady, M. E���   of tbe  firm  of
Brady * Moynihan, Mining Engineers
of Rossland. recently spent some time
at Canal Flat tn the course of which
he made a olose inspection of Findlay
Creek as a placer field.   For the first
seven or eight  miles above its junction with the Kootenay River, Findlay Creek passes through a succession
of deep rooky canyons, with occasional
high gravel banks, benches or bars at
a higher level than tbe present stream.
Tbe rook oansists of  slate or schists
cut by dykes of diorite and occasional
bands of limestone, more or less seamed witb quart-s.    Many quartz lodes
oross tbe creek,  some running' with
the strike of the country rook, with
other lodes that are larger aud stronger, cutting across these.   These leads
are more  or  less   iuinre-rnated   with
iron pryites, copper and other sulphurets, such as usually accompany gold
in quarts.    Galena is  also frequently
present.   For the next .five miles up
stream the creek goes through deep
deposits of gravel, forming   benches
and terraces on either side from 20 to
2U0 leet above tbe bed of  the present
stream,   and extending back from a
few hundred leet to  half a  mile or
mon.   These immense gravel deposits
seem to have been formed by a large
anoiei.t river coming in from the north
and flowing out through the canyon
at the south branch of the Findlay
Creek,   and  they bave since been out
through  by  the more modern stream
now forming the Findlay Creek and
its tributaries.   The present bed of the
main branoh of Findlay Creek is from
10 to 15 feet below the surface of the
gravel deposit, except perhaps at the
mouth of   the creek.    The preseut
channel of the ancient river appears to
have been on the south branch,  where
it would appear to have been deeper
than the present channel of Findlay
White Tail Creek, the modern representative of the great river that once
came in from the north, has dwindled
down to a stream of 60 miners' inches,
having its source in a shallow lake or
pond about a mile and a half above
the canon.
The bed rook of the great gravel deposit ie chiefly soft talcose, ohloritio
and argillaceous slates, graduating
into harder schists on the side hills
and into granite rock on the summits.
The slates carry Innumerable seams,
veins, lodes aud irregular masses of
quarts, with sulphurets of iron, copper, lead, Ac The dykes are composed
of a greenish, fine-grained diorltio
rock, alar seamed with metalliferous
quarts occurring iu place, forming the
falls and rapids of Findlay Creek, and
in some eases the rim rock of the old
The ween consists of sand, olay,
gravel and boulders, wilh a falas hot
torn ol ferruginous gravel cement In
many places and at varying heights
above Findlay Creek. Good prospects
ol fine and coarse gold are found in
this cement, and the ground below tt
has never been properly tested. Fair
prospects with the pan oan be got
along tbe creek. The river bed, lower
benches and bars have been worked at
different times with more or leas profit
���by white men first some 25 years
ago, and by Chinamen dnrlng the last
10 years. The latter made from 72c
to 11.60 a day per man with rockers
and short sluices.
Above this the stream flows through
alt. mate stretches of gravel benches,
flats or bars and rook canons for the
next three or four miles. Many of
these henohes prospect well and can be
easily and cheaply worked by the hydraulio method. The formation is a
schistose diorite, harder than below,
and showing less quartz. There is
plenty of water and the boulders are
not too large. A ditch five miles long
has been constructed and will carry
about 600 miners inches of water. The
available head at tbe lower end le 200
feet. There Is another ditch about
two and a half miles long whioh oould
be utilized and work oould be oarried
on for six months of the year.
This group of olaims Is distant two
miles from the present wagon road
and is on a hill on the west side of tbe
Columbia Lake. The country rock is
slate, with dykes ot greenstone striking northeast and southwest, and dip*
ping northwest. .The lode Is 26 to a
hundred feet in' width, and is a gold
bearing quartz, well mineralised
with iron and copper pyr-
ities, and a little galena tn places.
Several open cuts have been made
across the lode in the quartz, and a
shaft bas been sunk to a depth of 80

A test made by Messrs Cowell _ Wallinger,
of Steele, ran W.50 to 112.40,
Tbe Sun lode at its most prominent
out crop is probably 70 or 80 feet wide,
An open cross cot bas been run some
40 feet in quarts oarying iron and copper sulphurets. Cowell A Wallln-
gar's assay of this lead gave a return
of gold 88.18, and silver 88.13. It is
estimated that 200 tons a day of tbis
ore could be got ont and that it would
average 15 to 16 in gold per ton. The
method of treating the ore would be by
milling and concentrating by vanners
aud then reducing the concentrates by
cyanide or the leaching process.
This group consists of five adjoining
mineral-claims: Jupiter, Mars, Juno,
Millsiteand North Jupiter, covering
an area of 160 acres, The group is located west of the Columbia Lake and
there is a good wagon road right on to
the property from the concentrator
landing, the distance being two miles
aud a half. The country rock consists of various slates with occasional
belts of diorite and limestone. The
strike of tlie country rock is northeast and southwest with dip to the
northwest. The lodes occur in a
prominent ledge, 260 to 600 lost above
the surrounding oountry, running
north and south, outting the seams
both in strike and dip at considerable
angle. Two and sometimes three
paralled outcrops of quaita occur
mineralized with iron pyrites and
grey copper, and from 20 to 200
feat wide all along this ridgs. On the
Jupiter lead there are two prominent
parallel out orops, with quartsttes nnd
altered schists between them. The
west lead is very large, and shows
upon the surface on the North Jupiter,
Jupiter and Juno, and has been prospected by an open inolined out 150 feet
long east and west, showing oie all
the way, This cut is 26 feet across
the lead in depth and bas not reached
the footwall. It is all in quartz showing galena, copper pyrites, grey copper, and carrying from tl to 85 in
gold, and from one to M ounces in
silver per ton, The outorop on the
east lead Is also very large and is exposed on the North Jupiter and Mars
olaims. The work done consists ot
several open outs, all showing ore
tbat will assay. It is estimated that
this ore oan be treated for 12.60 to 18
per ton.

The Great Medicine a Suva -ure for
Rheumatlam and Sciatica
Thousands of people die annually of
rheumatism, yet every case conld have
been oured if Paine'e Celery Compound
had been used in time.
Too many men and women show a
marked indifference when, in some
form, the dread diseass commences its
agonizing work. Some foolishly im-
magine that bright, warm and dry
weather will banish the intruder, and
they determine to trust themselves to
time and circumstances. Others
place their hope in warmer clothing
and the frequent use of llnaments,
while others experiment with electricity and baths.
As the days pass the careless and
indifferent find themselves deeper in
the mire of suffering, and they experience all the countless twinges
and agonies ot the disease.
They have chills, pain in the
hae., quickened pulse, constipation, loss of appetite, coated tongue,
and tbe joints swell���usually the
knees, elbows and wrists.
Now la the time of extreme danger,
Now the sufferers realize that they are
paying the penalty of their earless*
ness. Many will be helpless and use-
leas; we shall see tbem with stiffened
muscles and joints, and limbs twisted
and drawn up.
Some will ask the question, "Is
there truly a cure for euch helpless
rheumatics?" We say unhesitatingly
there is. The agent that cures effectively and scientifically Is Paine's
Celery Compound. It has cured

Mr. Sturdivant said: "Florence
was taken sick with scarlet, fever and
we immediately called in a physician.
He prescribed for her and we followed
bis directions closely, giving our
little patient the best ot care. After
two weeks the fever subsided, but
Florence was left with a very weak
back severe pains were constantly in
the back and stomach. We did all
that possibly could be done to relieve
our little sufferer, but to no avail.
Tbe difficulty seemed to baffle the
efforts of the physician.
"Finally at the end ot four months
of treatment, we found our patient
completely prostrated. At this time we
called another physician, who agreed
with the diagnosis of our own doctor,
and said that the trouble resulted
from the scarlet fever. He prescribed
a course of treatment and we followed
it faithfully for three mouths, but instead of improving Florence failed,
'Mrs. Sturdivant and myself were
completely discouraged, A brother ot
my wife, who was visiting nr, advised
us to use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and I purchased a box of
the pills nnd began to give them to
Florence. This was in October 1896.
After using the pills for a short time
we could see an improvement. Her
strength began to return and she
would sit up in bed. Her appetite
wns restored and she ate heartilly.
We also noticed a gradual brightness
in her eyes.
"Weeagerlypnrchased a further supply ot the pills and watched with de-
light the change for the better that was
wrought daily. From sitting up in
bed at times during the day and at
times standing on her feet, Florence
finally became strong enough to walk
a little. She gained in flesh and
strength rapidly aud the pains gradually left ber. In a month's time ahe
had recovered her health and strength.
"We cannot praise too highly the
value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
am positive that without their use, our
child would have been today in the
same sad condition of her early sickness -a confirmed invalid-if Indeed
she had had the strength to withstand
so long the ills ot her affliction.
