A  Illli-TOlt  NEEDED.
At the present   moment  there are
several families residing iu Gulden and
a   goodly   sprinkling   of   inhabitants
ganerally.     The lumber mill and tie
camps  together employ abo..t 75 men.
The Golden  Smelter probably will run
iu tho fall, this will  bring many more
people to the town.    The districts surrounding this, with  the exception of
Donald, aro  also  within  reach   from
this   point and  none have a medical
man.      Il   is very   strange  that some
young practitioner  who is struggling
perhaps fur an existence,  competing
against ntlinliers and age, which goes
u long way towards success in so many
eastern towns, docs not turn his attention  this  way and take it upon himself to ascertain a little more about the
probability of success  if  established,
here.     We candidly think that about
8100 a month could be made by a well
qualified man inn short time,especiiilly
if   he added to his regular profession,
thai of a drug st o>-e, as so in any do in the
mountain.      It might also he possible
if the case were brought  before the
proper  authorities to obtain a small
grant as a subsidy as it is known lo
the (iovernmetit  that we are badly in
want of assistance in this matter.     If
this  happens to catch the eye of any
doctor who has a wish to know more
of     the   circumstances,   information
based on facts nnd   figures   will   lie
willingly sent by the malinger of the
Elt.v.      In mentioning this great need
we   voice the  opinion   ami often expressed one too, of   the entire population of this town  und of the friends

A petition lias been drawn up in

append : ���
THE PETITION of the undersigned resident taxpayers of  	
I iu the district of East Kootenay, humbly sheweth :
THAT the development of tho country depends to a great extent upon the
facilities for the transportation of ore troin the mines to the Navigation and Railway dues.
THAT one of tho most prominent mines in the district is that known us the
North Star.
THAT the North Star Mining Company hnvo already spent on making trails
and carriage of supplies and machinery from the Kootenay River to
the mines about (tweuty-ftv-e hu.i Ire.l dollars) $2oC0.
THAT the same Company have also spent a large amount iu freighting and in
the development of their mine, thus affording employ incut to many of
our men.
THAT the Golden Mining and Smelting Company has made a proposition to
the North Star Company for the purchase of this year's output of the
mine ou terms which would bo acceptable to the Company if there
were a wagon road from the mines to the Kootenay River.
THAT the distance from the mines to the river is about IS miles, and that we
hear tho North Star Company have made a proposal to tho Government, whereby they would build this road provided tlio Government
agreed to repay to them, after oOO tons of ore had been hauled over
the road, the cost (not to exceed ijd,000) of the part between Mark
Creek and the Kooteiuty River, which part would lie a trunk road and
would Iks serviceable to all other minus iu the St. Mary's district and
which would consist of fourteen miles of tho easiest part of the road
to construct.
THAT we aro informed the residents of Fort Steele have already sent in a
petition in favor of the construction of tlie road and that no action
has yet been taken on it by the Government.
THAT the construction this season would ensure the ore being brought to
Golden for smelting and would therefore h; of great benefit to the
whole district by affording employment to a large number of men at
the mines, iu transportation and at the Golden Smelter, and givo a
great impetus to till tho business enterprises, besides attracting the
attention of the outside world to our mining possibilities.

B.   LANG,:
THAT much valuable time and considerable loss to the inhabitants of the
district has resulted from this road not having been built at the
earliest part of the season, as ore cannot now be brought to the river
in time for tho opening of navigation.
Smelter hands are^ always well paid; JTHAT all further delay will result in further reduction of the amount of ore
