spent two yours of study iu Germany,
at the Leipzig Conservatory of Music,
According to a proclamation in another column thn Provincial Legislature will meet, "for ths dispatch ol
business," on February 8th. Speaking
of the approaching session the Van*
couver World says:
"Ths tedious and protracted manner
in which the legislation of British
Columbia is conducted during the sessions of the house of assembly has been
a bye-word in the past. It is to be
hoped that expedition and promptness
will characterize the deliberations of
the forthcoming session. In the interests of the people und economy,
there is no reasou whatever why the
whole business should not be got
through within the period of one
month or five or six weeks at tbe
furthest. What is accomplished elsewhere, where the work ia many times
greater than that to be transacted here,
surely can be accomplished���if only
the windbags and obstructionists can
be kept in order no matter what side
of the Speaker they msy be ou."
The Victoria Times commenting on
the above says:
"The government has this matter in
its own hands. If it were to meat the
assembly with business properly prepared, and with the sole idea of furthering the publie interests, a long
session would not be necessary. We
may expect such a reformation from
the Turner government about the time
when the Ethiopian dons a white skin
and tbe leopard exchanges bis spots
for the tiger's stripes. If the government did really effect such a change aa
the' World suggests there would be
some room for hope that it would pro*
perl.v transact the business of the
province."
In the development of our mines are
we not iu great danger of fostering a
lot of professional sharpers? We are
afraid if some better wav be not adopted, tho people of the world will soon
look upon British Columbia as one vast
gambling hell, wherein "skin" games
predominate.���The Pathfinder,

War Eagle mine is sold and sold to
Canadians. The purchasers are a Toronto syndicate headed, it is believed,
by Messrs Gooderham and Blackstock
and the price they paid for tbe property
is ��S5O,CO0 cash. The mine is in
splendid condition, producing 125 tons
of ore per day. and is shape to pay
dividends of 950,000 per mouth for a
long time to come without further development. It is, however, being
further developed right now, and the
winze from the Ko. 2 tunnel, which is
of three compartment size, is down
nearly 70 feet and is all in ore. This
ore is not only in larger mass but of
higher grade than any heretofore found
in the mine. The long tunnel driven
through the Iron Mask is new close to
the edge of tho War Eagle gronnd, and
when extended to the bononza chute,
iu which the winze is being sunk, will
give a further depth ol 250 feet ou tbe
vein.

The "Nelson Tribune," a little while

An Incurable Cured.
AFTER TREATMENT  IN  CAN-
ADA'S BEST HOSPITAL
HAD FAILED.
SATURDAY, JAN, 9,   1897.
Save The Caal ..anils.
"The Miner" takes the ground that
it is at least not becoming in Col. Bak
er, minister of mines for the province
of British Colombia, to be interested
in a corporation, which proposes to
absorb every acre of the coal lands in
the vicinity of the Crow's Nest Pass,
thus depriving the miners of the Kootenay country of any assurance of cheap
fuel. Holding the official position he
does Col. Baker should defend the interests of the miners of Kootenay, and
not be up to his eyes in a scheme, which,
if curried out successfully, would be
fruitful ot the most euduring wrongs
to them.
We have no hesitation in recording
our unalterable opposition to the continuation of the charter of the British
Columbia Southern. It has repeatedly
been given a. renewal of its charter by
the British Columbia legislature. The
last time it came up for renewal was
last winter. Tbe company never had
any capital, but was primarily and
essentially a scheme to trade on. There
is no reason to believe that the B. C.
Southern has ever had any substantial
prospect of building the Crow's Nest
Pass railroad, and nobody considers it
a serious factor so fur as that part of
the business is concerned. There is a
well founded belief that the company
was organized in the beginning and
has been kept alive solely for the purpose of selling out to tbe Canadian
Pacific or some other company
The coal lands were given to the B.
C. Southern on condition that it should
build the Crow's Nest line. It this line
should not be built by it, or at least
under its name, the coal lands subsidy
falls to the ground and the lands go
back to the province. These lands
should never have been bartered away
in this fashion and we hope the provincial legislature will take steps to
cancel the charter this winter.
We want the Crow's Nest Pass rail
road, hut we want it in the right way
We do not want it at the sacrifice of
the most valuable heritage that can lie
given to the mining industry by the
province which is to be enriched and
* made great by that industry. If these
coal lands are worth anything they nre
worth many millions of dollars; indeed, their value as an adjunct to the
mining industry ill the province is not
to be estimated in dollars and cents.
Ths Miner is going to do its utmost to
bring this subject forcibly to the minds
of all good citizens in the province, and
it will leave no honorable means untried tn prevent the consummation of
the project of Col. Baker aud hia
associates.���Rossland Miner.
In the late war 1 was a soldier in
the Fir-it Maryland Volunteers, O.im -
pany O. D.iriug my term of service I
contracted chronic ilinrrhcun. Since
then I have used a great amount of
medicine, but when I found any that
would give ine relief it would injure
my siemach, until Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and diarrhoea Remedy was
brought to my notice. I used it and
will say it is the only remedy that
gave me permanent relief and no bad
results to follow, I take pleasure In
recommending this prepsratirn to all
of iny old comrades, ivho, while giving
their services to their country, contracted this dreadful disease us I did,
from sating unwholesome and uncooked food. Yours truly, A. E. Bundinu,

Kaslo  are  much   annoyed, but   that
Kaslo  is.    Speaking for myself, who
lias a right to say that I um a citizen
of  Kaslo, I   must   suy that 1 am not
annoyed ;   let tne explain :    The other
day   some   of   our    sojourners-the
American  citizens who are staying a
little while with us I mean of course-
all   ut   once  found   out .that they���
through  a   wise  amendment  to the
municipal  act  were  cnlv   American
citizens and not British subjects there-
tore hud not the whole suy in running
the municipalities of West Kootenay.
You  may  guess   that the American
citizens  of  Kaslo   were "vory much
annoyed,"  but to suy tbat Kaslo was
was   very wrong, very much off so to
speak.     There   were otliers that were
very  much  annoyed too, they were:
some of the papers of West Koo'.enay,
those  which  were rnn by Americans.
I hope I ain not  wrong in saying that
the  Nelson. Tribune  is one of these.
Seven months ago I knew the ''Tribune"  very well and must say I liked
it,   but  now , well,   things have
changed,���you .understand.
Being neither a Canadian or an
American I perhaps huve no right to
express an opinion on this subject, but
if there is ono thing that is becoming
too obnoxious for anything it is the
audacity ot some of the Americans
who have lately come across the line,
some of those particularly, "smart
"Alecs" who have for some years been
visiting the various mining camps as
they have sprung up in the Western
States. They are now visiting British
Columbia aud are very anxious te show
ns how to "ruu things." We see
them coming, we see their designs.
and they are very "vory much annoyed" because we cannot see their
way of thinking. We all kuow how
it ia they como over here, without
money, loaf around town until another
find" is made somewhere, when out
they go with about 20 miners' certificates each, uud they do some greut
staking toe and ull for $2.50 per claim,
back they go to town to sell their
olaims. Yon see regular shoals ot
them in West Kuoieuay just now.
Mind you I sny nothing against the
American capitalist coming here and
buying our minerals, they are very
much entitled to it if they pay for it,
as we are in the States, but I do not
think it quite a correct policy for us to
stand by and see the loafers of which
I speak seize it all and curry it awuy
lo the Slates again. I am inclined to
think thut our laws are not strict
enough on this point. Wbv should
uny others than British subjects he
allowed lo stake land here, why not be
on equal footin* with the -tutus on
this point. Mind you the Americans gen
ernlly nreuli-igltt,.nice people, but there
ure some thut ure otherwise, und it is
the nice people thut,' we should encourage to become citizens with us.
We have uo use for any others. It is
perfectly siukeuiii'- to see how some of
our sojourners ure claiming the whole
province us it were. Tbey appear to
have no rospt-ct for their neighbors
goods, and if thev have heard the
tenth commandment they entirely forget to observe it. British subjects
begin to find this thing becoming past
endurance, antl hope that something
will be done to put an end io ihe
wholesale appropriation of '.heir birthright by outsiders.

From the Newmarket Advertiser.
We suppose there is not u resident of
Newmarket who does not know Mr. J.
A. Moffutt, who does not know of his
years of suffering and who hua not j
heard of his release from a life of helplessness and pain through the medium
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Indeed
we doubt if iu the annals of medicine
there is a more remarkable restoration
than has been accomplished in Mr.
Moffatt's case, and he deems it bis
duty to mankind to make the facts
known through the columns of the
Advertiser.
Ten years ago Mr. Moffatt was working in the Newmarket Hat Factory.
Through the influence ot tha damp
room, aud possibly some carlcssness in
regard to his health, he was attacked
with a severe cold whioh eventually
settled in his limbs. For some years
he was un almost constant sufferer
from rheumatic pains and spent much
money iu treatment for the trouble,hut
with no result beyond an occasional
temporary release from pain. Finally
te make matters woite he was attack
ed with malaria antirheumatic fever
He was then forced to go to   Toronto
(Sept. 1895) Mr. Moffatt had so far recovered that he was a frequent con-
tributer to the columns of the Advitis-
er and procuring a horse and buggy he
was engaged as local reporter for the
paper. The once utterly helpless invalid is now able to go ubout, and to
get in and out of his buggy without
any assistance, and is at his post of
duty whenever called upon.
Thus we find that after years of Suffering and helplessness Dr. -Williams'
Pink Pills have proved auucesslul after
all other remedies and the best of medical treatment had utterly failed. With
such marvellous oures as this, to the
credit it is no wonder that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the most popular
medicine with all clases throughout
tho land, and this case certainly justi
fios the claim put forth on its behalf
thut it "cures when other medicines
fail.

that he was afflicted with torticollis
(wry neck), During the first six
months in the hospital he was under
thn treatment of the staff electrician,
hut the powers of electricity entirely
failed, nnd nfter a consultation of physicians it wns deemed advisable to perform au operation. Six weeks later a
second operation was performed. The
operations proved successful only in
so fur as they afforded temporary relief.
Ho remained in the hospital fro* November, 1890, till January, 1892, and
with all the modern remedies and up
pliances known to the staff of that well
equipped institution no permanent relief could lie obtained, He was then
ulvised to go home, partly iu the hope
'hat the change might prove beneficial,
mil instead he continually grew worse,
uid in March 1892, was again forceil
to take to his bed, and those who knew
of his condition did not believe he had
long to live. At this time every joint
ni his body wns swollen uud distorted,
ind he suffered the most excruciating
'irony. If a person walked across his
bedroom it intensified the puin ns

of hopeless suffering he renin 1 tied lied
fust lor eighteen months, ull the while
ising nil manners of medicines from
which relief might, lm ho|ied for. Then
he was put under the treatment of a
relehnitiid Toronto specialist, but with
no better result. After this lust experiment failed, he determined to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, ui the mme Hint
discontinuing all o'he treatment. At
the end of three mouths there was h
very noti.-tiblo improvement in his con
dition. and so much so thai his mother
thought he could tie lifted outside. He
was still so wank, however, thut he
wns only able to remain up u few minutes ns liefore. When taken buck in
bed he felt a sudden tingling scu*-<tioi>
going up from his to**s uud through
his joints and spine. The next maun*
ing when be invoke the pain had left
the body and lodged in the arms, mul
thou for so'iiie weeks the pain flitleii
from pluce to place in tho arms and
then disappeared, uud he has not bud
a particle of puin since. All this time
he was taking Dr. W lllains'Pink Pills
and slowly hut surely regninin,' his
strength. Then au invalid's couir whs
procured, and he was wheel.--! out.

The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to the merits pi ��� new
improved apparatns. for testing and smelting various kinds of ores and miner-
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc.
Manufactured by a chemist and metallurgist wbo thoroughly understands
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, tbe miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, coupeliing, fusing la
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, roasting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slag and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe und knock-down bottom.
It is of the cupola type, with extension when smelting ores; capacity 1000
to 5000 pounds per heat; also smaller size, capacity from 100 to SiOU pounds
per heat, according to the character of ires.
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
This furnace is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported over a mountainous country by a pack burro,
that is complete and ready to be set up nt uuy dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will uot pay to ship, and muke his good pay out of oue to two tons
of ore u day,
On low-grade ores picked ut the dump, this little ruruuee will pay for Itself overy week, besides wages und expeuees. Let someone else do the risk in
mining, and stick to a certainity.
What We Furnish and What it Costs.
A Handy Prospector's Furnace, 3 feet in diameter by 6 feet high, cupola

Pear Sir i
I send you copies of Tim Oolden
Eka and Port Steele Prospector containing paragraph*, on proposed cable
between Golden and Fort S eele. There
is great need for such service ns the
distriot is qow an important one an d
a large voluinn of trade passes along
between the two places.
In fact a series of publio meetings in
favor of the formation of a cable will
be held at Fort Steele shortly when the
formation of Provisional Committee
will he commenced, and I presume you
wil be agreeable to set on this committee, and do what you can to assist in
carrying out the wishes of yqur con-
Stitutents.
When the other meetings are fixed
Intimation will be sent to yo-i so that
you may attend, should you so desire.
A similar request has been made to Mr.
Bostock the Dominion Member. Meantime communication is being held with
the Dominion snd Provincial government department* as to how best the
scheme oould be carried out, and if
vqi) oould give any hints these would
lie appreciated.
I have only lately come-into the
valley end feel the defective means of
communication very much, and so
does every person in the valley with
whom I have name in ooniuot. At
' all informal meetings held the idea has
been heartily taken up.
I am, yours faithfully,
