The talk against the Lumber Co.
getting a subsidy of $3,250 towards
the building of the proposed railway
bridge across the Kicking Horse seems
to have taken effect The Co. have
written the Government that under
the circumstances tenders had better be
called. The need of a bridge has been
repeatedly brought to the Government's
notice and it is too bad that the work
should now be delayed in this way,
A bridge that would not carry the
heaviest C.P.R. engine would be of no
service to the town. There is not only
the Lumber Co, to consider, for the
upper country trade, the shipment of
ore requires the connection with the
Columbia Hirer. That a lower bid
than that of the Company will be re
ceived seems out of the question and
in the meantime we are done out of
the bridge for a yesr.

Through the efforts of Mr. Robins���
to whom  all  credit is due for having
accomplished it   u concert was held in
the Alexander Hull on Tuesday night.
We were i-lud to see so many who appreciate   the   cause and were asked to
thank   them   for their attendance and
especially   are   thanks due to the performers   who   so   willingly  did their
best to muke it a success.     Of course
the   musical   talent   ill   Golden is not
targe, ic   is   not   in fact as large as it
should be  lot the size of the pluce and
any   one attempting to give a concert
with   '-Home" tulout only has quite a
task and I am sure Mr. Robin deserves
���to a marked  degree-our thanks for
the noble work he did.   Mrs. Mercier's
piano   solos   were   played with much
skill and were very much appreciated.
Songs  were sung by Messrs. Mitchell-
Innes and Plowright.   Miss Woodley's
club swinging wusu treat and she was
forced to repeat the performance before
tho   audience   were   satisfied.      Miss
Brownrigg   in   her recitation showed
not   a  little   dramatic  talent, and of
course was "called buck again.-'     Mr.
Glassford also  delighted thc audience
with one of his grand recitations.  Mr.
Robins also kindly gave his visitors a
flute solo, which took very well.   Refreshments  were then   taken and the
evening passed off very enjoyably. The
concert was given in aid of the Methodist Church  here and we hope it will
not be in any way the last.     The receipts were ��-12.75.

Tne long monotony which has been
witnessed in Golden was at last broken
by the bachelors giving a little dance
on Wednesday last, the time was
chosen, though*very unfavourable, because the musical instrument was still
in the hall, and it is without doubt
the want of music here lhat prevents
so much all our attemrts at giving entertainments of all kinds. Mrs. Wood-
ley very kindly allowed hor piano to
remain over for another day. We extend to her our many thanks and hopo
it will be in our power to reuder her iu
some way an acknowledgment for tho
obligation. This being the first dunce
for some time, we were getting quite
rusty and could not, oi course, keep it
up long. Mrs. Mercier supplied the
music though she was kindly assisted
by Miss May Harrison whose two-
steps were the thing of the evening,
and for which we have to thank her
for her kindness in supplying them.
Refreshments wero taken about 12
o'leock and the dance broke up at 2:30
after a very enjoyable evening. As
wo have now started 1 think it not ad-
Tisuble to give up all hope of having
another in the near future. Could not

Srlitor Goi.iien ERA:
SiK,- In writing to you on this sub'
any   value  except   as pasture, yet is
assessed at five dollars an acre,
Yours obedt.
F. *W. Aylmeu.
ject I have no wish to tako part in the
wordy controversy now going on in
your columns, but the correspondence
wus opened by Mr. Avlmer with so
much politicnl spite and has since be
come so personal, that your readers are
not likely to gain much information
on the subject unless it is from a third
party. As I havo had a good deal to
do with the project I should like to
lay the caso before your readers.
And first let me state thnt its revival at the present time is not due, ss
one would gather from Mr. Aylmer's
remarks, to the fact that the elections
are close at hand and Billy Bott must
be conciliated.
tt is somo venrs since the Government was usked by our member to
have our principal lukes stocked with
suitable fish. To that end information
was furnished the Fisheries Department as to the nature of the principal
lakes in the district, i e., the Columbia
and Premier Lakes. This included
the depth, character of the bottom, the
kind of weeds growing in them, their
temperature in summer, ete. We got
favorable replies, and the only reason
the work has not been already completed is that the appropriations to the
Department are comparatively small
and many other parts of the couutry
have made similar applications.
Latterly, however, the matter has
forced itself into the notice of the
authorities for reasons which have in
the past been overlooked. At the
month of the Fraser River is a point
of land lying to the south of the 40th
parallel, on which are leverul American canneries. In spiteof the protests
of our Government thesecanners refuse
to i'0-ipcrate in any way with our
people in making regulations tending
to the preservation of the salmon on
Fraser, Now if there were a butchery
on the Coluinliia in Canadian Territory
the Canadian Government could sav to
���he Americans : "If you will not help
us to protect these fisheries we must
protect ourselves, and to do this end
we will tuke spawn from the Columliiu
River und turn the fry into the Fraser "
The scheme is quite feasible as even
Mr. Aylmer will allow. There are
very few spawning --rounds iu the
Amerioau tributaries of the Columbia.
The Pen.l d'Oreille and other large
streams generally have a bad canon
near their mouths which prevent the
lish going up.
Apart from these considerations, the
Department are anxious to get Columbia river spawn us the salmon are by
far the best on the Pacific coast and
bring u liefer price in the market.
It   is   a   verv   great   pity that    a
measure which would lead to so much
I ���{-..nl   'o   x-0   lisirict should be so be-
in ill-,    ii..     i resident uud surely such
| tactics are not calculated to gain votes
i for the Opposition candidate.
Your obedient servant,
Golden, April (ith, 1801.
Ix at least a week from this date the
Columbia river will be again open for
navigation, and it is believed on all
sides that we a.io on the dawn of a
more prosperous season than East
Kootenay lias ever seen. There hns iu
previous years been some attempts
made to boom the country around us,
but these were never - ns things have
proved���made upon any substantial
basis, some people were - to use a common expression - going to "raise Cain"
nnd so they did for awhile-that is if
exciting tlio people in the neighborhood cun lie culled doing it. but it was
raised only to fall again, into a much
worse condition than if there had been
no raising. Tilings have, however
now about reached bed rock, and consequently are bound to rise. It would
be different of course hud we no mineral
here, no one will dispute that I believe
We have not -with one exception any
paying mines in operation ut present,
but we have hundreds that could be so
worked. The cost of mining in British
Columbia is not half so much ns it
was six years ago and not only is the
mining cheaper but we have nearer
and better markets for our products.
There is at present no region discovered in Hie Province that can show bettor mineral prospects Ihull we can in
East Kootenuy and particular!) in the
McMurdo couutiy. There are there
numbers of quartz veins which will
average more ill gold and* silver than
any locality iu West Kootenay. There
have been many influences at work io
delay the development of the country.
But I feel confident that they will be
now no longer iu force und that we
aro now on the eve ol a new era in our
mining industry.
Tub present situation of tho British
Empire, ns regards its political relations to otlier nations and thc many
responsibilities it hns iu connection
with its mi,Id-wide and scattered
territories, is particularly interesting.

"We tako pleasure in recommending
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy because
it is praised by all who try it," says
J. W. Cox & Son, druggists, Marsh-
field, Oregon. No one afflicted with a
throat or lung trouble can use this
remedy without praising it. It always
gives prompt relief. It is especially
valuable for colds as it relieves the
lunvs, makes breathing easier and aids
expectoration. A cold will never result
in pneumonia when this remedy is
taken and reasonable cars exercised.

A Distinction with a Difference.
The Nip & Tuck Oold Hydraulic
Mining Co., Ltd. has been formed to
acquire the placer milling lease and
property known as the Nip & Tuck
claims, situate on Wild Horse Creek
in Fort Steelo mining district, and to
carry on the business of mining. Capital 835,000 in shares of $5 each. The
head office is at Vancouver. B.C., the
Directors are A. W Creery, J. M.
Buxton, and W. H. Curnsew, all of
Vancouver. J. H. Kinnard is Superintendent and Manager at Fort Steele.
Mr. Kinnard is pushing the preparatory work, aud expects to have every
thing in readiness, by the time the
new machinery arrives, but will commence washing the gravel if there
should be any delay arising from the
non-appearance of the coming machinery. Mr. Kinnard is a thorough
placer miner, having had thirty-Six
years experience in California and
other   places. ��� Fort Steele Prospector.
The Invictn Oold Mines is the name
of the English company, engaged in
hydraulic mining on Wild Horse creek
Thu new superintendent, Mr. James
Young, uud Mr. Alexander Mitchell
who will attend to the financial affairs
of the company, arrived at Fort Steele
ou the 14tn ult. The gentlemen immediately went to Wild Horse, to look
over the property, and will commence
preparatory work at onc.i. Mr.
���jkel'tchley has been appointed Asst.
Superintendent. A number of men
have lieen employed to complete the
new dam, put iu new head boxes connecting the ditch with the dam, new
pressure boxes will be nude, a tie-*'
sluice will be run on the China claim,
also a new flume to the edge of the
bunk, an Electric light plant will be
put in. The company will employ
about forty men. working two shifts.
Supt. Young and Mr. Mitchell, left on
Tuesday via the stiige for Vancouver,
where they will purchase HiCO feet of
piping, and two No. 4 Hoskins Giants
and other machinery lor the mine.
Large results are looked for, nnd there
is no doubt, that if manacud properly,
a good clean-up will be the result.
Ilrlilah  Opinion.
There is no doubt but that considerable interest is being shown in Eng-
and towsrd the Province of British
Columbia, as future fields for mining
speculation. Iu a recent issue of the woll as at Lardeau, on both of whicli
Montreal Gazette is contained the foi-' properties   gangs of men have been nt
of the Lillooet, Fraser River & Cariboo
Gold Fields, Limited, the oilier directors of which company are Mr. Henri
Rosenheim, the celebrated bunker ol
Pnris, who, as director and chliirniun
of the successful African.companies,
the East Rand and -inglo-Fi-ench, lii^.
had one of the most successful mining
careers in Europe. Baron de Machiels,
of Machiels, bankers of Paris, and Div
Goldschmidt, together representing
the European side of tbo original syndicate, whose names are household
words in European financial circles.
The other London directors, besides
Mr. Home-Payne, nre Hon. Forbes
Vernon, ageut-generul ot British Columbia, and Mr. Northall-Lnurie, lately
senior partner of the firm of Xort hull-
Laurie & Co. In British Columbia
the board is represented by Mr. Frank
S. Barnard, M.P , vice-chairman; the
Hon. J. A. Mara, and Mr. Farrell.
The company bus a capital of i'i'Ol),-
000, of which ��250,000 has been pnid
"A reporter, in talking with Mr.
Home-Payne, learned that this was
that gentleman's third trip to Canada,
and that be wus first directed to this
country through the large interests
held by his clients in Canadian Pacific
and kindred securities. Mr. Hoi ne-
Pnyne says that, before leaving London, he found everyone greatly pleased
at the change fur the better duriii-j tho
year, in 'he outlook for Canadian IV
clic and other Canadian securities,
uud greiiter confidence was generally
prevailing in financial circles. ' Mr,
Home-Payne's present trip is more
particularly devoted to :he Lilli >et
Company. This com, nny already
owns some forty claims iu the Province
of British Columbia, but has only expended some ��15,000, up to the present time, rut of i's paid up capital of
��250,000, the balance being invested
in British consols, and ready for use
in the active develapment of the properties they now own, and such others
as they mny acquire. Mr. Horne-
I'uyiie says thut there hns been great
interest awakened in England over
British Columbia.
"While passing through New York
the other dny he found friends there
who were anxious to learn particulars
of the province, nnd who were willing
to join in mining operations out there.
If the results show any encouragement
there will, no doubt, be a great boom
in British Columbia this year. The
principal workings in the province, in
which the company is at presen) interested, consist of an important quartz
reef iu Barkerville, near Curiboo, and
an apparently rich gravel deposit in
connection with it, which the experts
of the company have heen inxestignt-
Ing, and which looks as rich us anything yet discovered out tliere. The
company also owns a predominating
interest in the 'Bonanza' reef, the
'Ample' reef and the offshoots thereof
at Lillooet, which look exceedingly
well, and which in likely shortly to
be among the most promising mines in
the province. Tha company is carrying cn active operations in prospecting
the ancient bod ol the (.'rryoos 'Jreek,
in the vicinity of Lillooet,which, after
being vainly searched for by other
companies, for so long, I as been discovered by their engineer,Mr. Hughes.

The attention of Prospectors nnd Miners is culled to the merits of a new
improved apparatus, 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 who thoroughly understands
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, the miner, iliechemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, ooupelling, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, rousting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slug and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and kuoek-ilowii bottom.
_ It is of the cupola type, with extension when smelting ores ; capacity 1000
to nOOO pounds per heat; also smaller size, capacity from 100 io L'OO pounds
per heat, according to the character of i res.
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
This furnace is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported oyer a mountainous country by a puck burro,
thut is complete and ready lo be set up at uny dump of low grade ores, thut
otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons
of ore a day.
On low-grade ores picked nt the .lump, tills little fiii'iiuce will pay for Itself every week, besides wages and expellees, Let someone else do the'risk in
mining, and stick to a certuiuity,
What We Furnish and What it Costs.
A Handy Prospector's Furnace, il feet in diameter hy 5 leet high, cupola
type with knock-down bottom, made of No. 10 Steele plate, and stiffened with

Editor OOLDEN Era :
Deaii Sui,��� In yonr hatte of the
4th inst. Mr. P Louke refers to tlie
Bismuth ores of Messrs. Dainard and
Low and the assays of Messrs Fowler,
'Cowell, a London atmlyist and myself,
all of which show considerable percentages of this metal, whereas ut a
later date samples taken from a pile of
the same ore give no returns to Dr.
Dawson (his department) and himself.
The assays originally made are conclusive evidence of the presence of bismuth, the failure of the latter two to
find it shews thut (i.e. provided they
are competent analysts, and there is
no reason to doubt this) the samples
vary considerably in composition, iu
ray opinion the bulk of the ore does
contain bismuth, whereas samples
taken off the top of the pile may not do
so. Elsewhere in your paper you allude to u difference of opinion regarding the concentrating properties of a
certain ore, ..sexpressed by some western smelting man and the writer, probably he spoke from casual observation
of the ore, whereas I did so after practical experience with the same covering a period of over four year and
application to analytical duta, during
this time, several outside tests have I
know confirmed my opinion thut the
ore is difficult to concentrate. Are
you aware that my sample iu this ^articular case contains not more than .0
p.c. silica with antimony, zinc, lead
aud iron as sulphides and the little
sillver iu the ore was contained to the
extent of 40 p.c. in the zinc, I think
not, or you would not make the statement that "the silver is contained in
the galena only, consequently it is not
a bad concentrating ore." Knowing
the facts as I do I think you will admit that your decision is not bused on
fair reasoning I am not in a position
to give, you a full statement of my
workings of this ore, as of course I
act for a client in this case aud the information is private, but I may say
that he is perfectly satisfied with the
report sent to him hy me. You will
oblige ine by giving this the same
prominence as you did your note on
the subject. I writ* this for your information and not in any way through
��� spirit of bad feeling.

New Drltlsh Route to the I'uclttc.
I have jnst received a lecture delivered at the Imperial Institute on the
17th Feb. lHDii, by Col. J. Harris,
F.R.G.S. on the new British Pacific
route to the Pacific, after giving a
short history of the settling of Canada he says:
"I will now come to the heart of my
subject and call you attention to the
map on the screen showing the new
British Route to the Pacific. I will
take you from Liverpool through Hudson's Straits to Churchill harbour on
Hudson's Bay, and from there to Sea-
falls and from there to Prince Albert,
called the Garden and Park of the
Great Northern Territory, from there
through the richest wheat growing
land in the world to Calgary, joining
the Canadian Pacific Railway, bringing ns into  communication with San
Francisco and   Vancouver, or in other
! words, s ivlng   thi-en   days   to I.idia,
, China, Japan. San Francisco  uud our
Pacific Colonies, also effect ing a saving
of ill   per bend on immigrants, ��3 to
��4   a   head   on   cattle, -Cl per ton on
wheat   anil   other   cereals, and   upon
I merchandise   from   DO  to 40 per cent.
This simple statement will  show the
immense   value   of   the   short route.
I Having   taken   you   over the route. I
I will  now  give yon extracts from the
opinions of   practical   men, reports of
Government   Commissions relating to
the proposed routp."
An impression has long prevailed
tliut Hudson Bav and Straits could
not be navigated for ordinary purposes
of commerce on account of the ice. It
1HK4 tho Manitoba Legislature appoint
ed 11 Select Committee to procure evidence and report upou the practicability of establishing a system of communication via Hudson's Bay and they
reported thut: '-No evidence has been
given that goes to prove that Hudson's
S; raits and Buy proper ever freeze
over, or that the ice met with in those
witters is sufficient to prevent navigation at any time of the year,"
Rrltlalt  I'liclllf.
We should certainly give the present
provincial government our many
thanks for not entertaining the proposition set forth by the promoters of the
British Pacific railway nnd we express
our hopes that it continues to reject
them us coined. The company ure
trying again to enter into fresh negotiations concerning it. The basis upon which they are now trying to
stand is a proposition thnt calls for u
largely increased land grant with a
decreased cash, still in the neighborhood of $120,000 a year for 2a years,
aud as I have seen it remarked -possibly forever, for all some people appear
to cure. With a deficit of close upon
one-third of tho entire revenue of the
Province and a considerable increase
in the taxation to bo borne by the
people, I think it more than likely
that the scheme will soon be drooped
���as it should be , for some time to
