M.  CARLIN,  General  Manager.
Dated at Golden, B.C., January I3th, 1899.
Thursday week witnessed exposure of
a state of things in British Columbia
of which few people have been aware.
The proceedings of the House ou that
day are enougia to -raise from one end
of the couutry to the other a cry ot
gratitude that the "Province bas seen
the last of the Turner administration
and the corruption tbat has attended
it. The Semlin Governineut had
brought in a measure to repeal the
extravagant land und money grants to
railroad charter-mongers. The principal charter-mongers to suffer by this
action on the part of the Government
wete the Mackenzie k Mann syndicate.
This syndicate lolled up all its forces
to defeat tho Government in their
effort toslop the spoilaitiou nnd robbery
of tho public estate. Every voter
ought to lay to heart tbe lesson lhat is
thus taught of the necossity for the
future of keeping the Government, out
of the hands of men like the Turner
party, who lent themselves to such
discreditable administration. To their
further discredit be It said, the Turner
party still strove to the last to back
up their attempt at publio spoilation.
Tbe Province thus describes the dis.
graceful condition of things that the
Mackenzie-Maun syndicate strove to
bring abuut iu tbe Legislature:
���'Excitement ran high in tbe chamber and corridors of the legislative
assembly this afternoon and tnis evening when the bill introduced by the
attorney-general to repeal certain acts
respecting aid to railways waa under
discussion on its second reading. In
other words the bill aimed to cancel the
agreement which was made by the late
government with Mackenzie and Mann
to build the road known as the Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern Railway
company, which was to run from Fen*
ticton to Boundary Creek and from
Penticton to ths coast. That a battle
royal would result was auiticipaaie.l
snd that Mackenzie and Maun would
put up a strong fight to hold the government to tbe agreement which ilie
late government exploited as a portion
of its railway policy was certain but
it was perhaps hurdly to be anticipated
tliat so desperate a lobbying would be
attempted at that which was unsuccessfully worked this afternoon.
"Mr. Lukes, the coutiaientiiil agent,
of Mackenzie and Maun, has been in
V'ieioriii lor some* time past and -the
atmosphere has been growing notice
ably sultry when V. V. k E. matters
have beeu discussed out of the bouse.
This afternoon und evening a great
array of legal talent has beeu abuut
the house aud members on the government side of ths house haie been buttonholed at every possible occasion.
"Messrs. Bud-veil, Gregorj, Davis,
McNeill and Dull hava all lent their
honeyed accents towards tbe defeat of
the bill, while Mr. McLean, one of ths
original holders of the V. V. k E.
charter, hns been on baud to do his
best towards helping things along. It
is beyond question that etery member
of the government party was sounded
and sounded thoroughly and it is
alleged that threats of no uncertain
nature were offered to some. The
opposition was not bothered, of course,
the vote from tbe speaker's left was
certain to go against the bill.
'It was left to Hon. Mr. Cotton to
effectual1}- close any possible breaches
in the government ranks. He made
by all odds the best speech of the session. He laid bare the position that
the Turiierito party had adopted in the
matter of its peculiur arrangements
with Macknzie and Mann and closed
with a vigorous denunciation of ��� lie
lobbyiug tactics which had been introduced in Ibe legislative assembly.
During his remarks he made a pointed
reference to the cual lauds ou the
Crow's Nest route, a teference which
brought a weak enquiry from Col.
Baker, whose interests in thi region
referred to are too well-known to ueed
" Hon. Mr. Cotton was heartily applauded at tbe close of bis speech aud
received warm congratulations from
the government supporters. The success of the bill is now assured
"I don't mind a fair amount of
persuasion,' said an honorable member
as hs walked down with your correspondent to-night, ' but I decidedly
object to this bullying by fed lawyars.

The Kamloops Standard takes us to
task over our statement tbat the Semlin Government was getting its bank
overdraft on practically as good terms
as the British Government. "We are
surprised at the erndito editor of tbe
Standard, for he should know better.
British consols carry 2j to 2| per com
interest, and eonsols always carry less
interest than casual loans like a bank
overdraft. The British rate for such
casual accommodation could not therefore be less than 8 per cent (the rate
arranged by the Semlin Government).
Wo don't make these statements without being able to back them up and in
proof of what we say we refer our
contemporary to Clarke's "Money
Market," table facing page 9. This
work is quoted approvingly by the
Financial News, Journal of the Institute of Bankers, and Commercial and
Financial Chronicle, and is evidently a
high authority.

Another groat discovery has been
male, and that too, by a lady in this
country. "Disease fastened its clutches
upon her and fur seven years she with
stood its severest tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed incessantly, and could not
sleep. She finally discovered a way to
recovery, by purchasing of us a bottle
of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, snd was so much relieved on taking first dose that she
slept all night; and with two bottles
has been absolutely cured. Her name
is Mrs. Lntber Luts." Thus writes

In the House on Thursday Hon. F.
C. Cotton thus replied to the opposition charges in regard to the civil
service: "With regard to the statement that these positions had been
filled up by the friends of tbe Government, he declared tliat te be absolutely
untrue. No men had been dismissed
to make room for a friend of the Government, and ho was quite sure that
the permanent officers of the service
recognised to-day that as long as tbey
did their duty tbey had nothing to
feiir. and that the Govern
desirous to make the service a permit
nent service, and for that reason to
take the service out of politics. He
could state on the part of some of the
principal officers, that they entirely
approved of that being done because it
removed them from uny fear of sits
pieiou. It wus only right this should
lie mentioned because of the gross
falsehoods sent abroad as lo dismissals
from the public service, and ho now
challenged anything to show him any
dismissal made but on publiu grounds
Chamberlain's Cough Ruinedy.
This remedy is intended especially
fcr coughs, colds, croup, whooping
cough and Inliuensa. It has become
famous for its cures of these diseases,
over a large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonals have
beeu received, giving accounts of its
good works ; of tbo aggravating and
l.eriitateiu coughs it bas cured J of severe coble that have yielded promptly to
its soothing effects, anal of the dangerous attacks of croup it has cured, often
saving the life of tbe child. The extensive use of it for whooping cough
Kas shown that it robs that disease of
all dangerous consequences. For sale

Tbe Winnipeg Tribune thus refers
to the bill which Hon. Joseph Martin
lias just introduced to cancel a number
of the land suba-idies which had been
granted by tho late Turner administration to charter hunters and railway
exploiters: " During the last year or
two of government by the late administration, Mr. Turner gave uway au
empire iu public lands, iu fact he acted
like a man who had been smitten with
a mania to get rid of every possible
acre of public domain. It seemed to
make uo difference who the applicants
were, all they bad to do was to form a
company aud ask for a slice and they
always got it. The public already
know what a colossal sacrifice was
made by the Turner government when
it gave to the Crow's Nest Pass company that immense coal treasure in
coal laud, and many oiher sacrifices,
perhaps not so greut in individual
magnitude, were made. The new government has put a stop to all that,
and has practically declared for government ownership of railways. In
order to put its policy of preserving
the public domain and conserving tbo
public interest, into execution, Mr.
Martin has introduced a bill lo cancel
a number of land grants voted by the
late government to railway companies,
but not so far availed of, The aotion
is right, and wiil be generally commended. We need more Joseph Martina iu public life in Canada to-lay."
Strong Ipeeeh by Hon. T. C. Cotton,
In introducing the bill te repeal the
extravagant grants of money and land
to charter mongers as made by the
Turner Government, Hon. F. C. Cotton, Finance Minister, said:
"When these subsidies were repealed
the government would look into the
matter of lotting new contracts for the
road and Mackenzio Mann k Co, if
they were beiter able to build the roid
than any other firm, and very likely
they were, would havo their chance
then, but was that ths matter that
was bothering the opposition and the
people who were seeking to defeat the
"No," said Hon. Mr. Cotton, "that
is not the trouble at all. The trouble
is   that it   tho acts are repealed   the
cp Tins house in every way so that
no one could go to his seat without
being cross-questioned as to how he
was going to vote. It is an outrageous thing that this sort of thing
should go on in this legislature but
" am sure
that it will pass with a big majority
these lobbyists   will understand they
had   better keep away from the pre
cincts of this house."
The government, continued the finance minister, did not go about with a
placard on its back announcing its
great railroad policv, but it was a
business government and would go
about its railroad work in a business
way. These persons who went about
with railroad charters spent no money
eicept perhaps on a few lawyers. They
did not build a mile of road nor did
they intend te. The V. V. and E.
scheme was the Fraser River k Bur-
rard Inlet scheme under a new name
and had been brought forward to re
coup those who hud lest money on
that scheme. The present government  WOULD   HAVE  NOTHING   TO DO
with  thesm paver ohakters.    It
when tbe sophistries of the opposition
were made clear to the people and the
full purport of the bill became known
the government's aotion would be even
more thoroughly endorsed by tbe provinoe.
Hon. Mr. Cotton said that the oppo.
sition bad sought to show that by in
traducing this bill an attempt was
being made by *he government to
break down a railway policy. Whore
was this railway policy? What had
it ever done? The Crow's Nest railway had been pointed to as an object
for the pride of the late government,
but a more damning instance could
not be quoted. It had resulted in the
province being robbed of millions of
dollars of coal lands. It had built up
a few millionaires in the east and had
made one or two rich men in this province. Tbe coal lands themselves
could have built half a dosen such
May I ask why the coal lands did
not build the railway?" asked Col.
Baker, who had  been writhing in his
Because those lands had been so
manipulated that they were not avail
able," returned Hon. Mr. Cotton, adding pointedly, "I cau well understand
why it is that my honorable friend
does not like that matter touched
Mr. Turner replied briefly, characterizing the bill as one of repudiation,
as a bill which aimed to break the
sacred obligation of the province. He
accused the attorney-general of making
distinctly political speech while neglecting Ibe provincial points of the
measure which he was putting before
the house.
The bill to repeal the charters was
passed by 21 io 14.

Kidney diseases are the most insidious of all diseases common to
humanity ; within tha past few
years medical science has made
wonderful strides in coping with its
ravages. South American Kidney
Curo has proved rich in healing
power, and every day testimony is
piled up for Us great curative qualities. Where kidney disease exists
it is generally indicated by certain
changes in the urine, such as mucus,
sediment, albumen, brick dust, acid
and blood���pain is not necessarily an
JEp accompaniment, which only aggravates the insidious nature of ft. Testing and experimenting bas disclosed
the fact that the passing through
these organs of the solid particles
in the ordinary course of circulation
do in a remarkably short while clog
up, grind out and impair them so
that the functions of these organs are
not performed and disease lays hold
on the patient with a ruthless hand.
Kidney diseases require a solvent-

Rheumatism is a

is* just oue way to
do this. That is,
to keep the digestion and assimilation perfect and
the liver and

All cases of

promptly cured
by Dr. Pierce's

Discovery. It
creates a keen,
hearty appetite,
corrects all dis-
wders nf the digestion, and all r.-rakne-ss

perfect, the Hvcr active, the blood pure and
rich with the life-fcivin-j elements of the
food, the nerves strong and steady, and it
drives all impuritu s mid abnormnl acida
from the blood. It allays inflammation and

" 1 have been ufflh'tcd with rheumatism and

Srove, Geauga Co.. Ohio. "I suflfeml untold

and am well of both diseases."
Dr. Pierce's Plcnsnnt Pellets cure constipation. Constipation is tbe cause of
many diseases. Cure the cause and you
cure the disease. One "Pellet" is a
gentle laxative, and two a mild cathartic. Druggies sell them and there's

''Some five or six years ago I had a bad
cough and got so low with it that I could
not sit up long at a time," writes Mrs. Mit-
tie Gray, of Now London, Union Co., Ark.

three days when I felt like a different per^

and it cured my cough. I have not been

took cold nnd commenced to cough ajtain;
I got a bottle of the ' Discovery' and it relieved me at once. I think it is the best
medicine in the world. It saved my life.
I don't think any one would die of con

Oatly Two Men Know the Trick.
There is one expert in Philadelphia
who, it is safe to say, stands entirely
alone in his specialty. He ia Jam*??
Toaghill, who has charge of the piling
of coin bags at the snbtreasnry. Not
only does he hare charge of the piling
of the bags, bnt he does it all himself,
for there is a secret connected with this
work that is known to only one man ia
the country besides the Philadelphia expert.
It does not eeem at first glance to bo
> very difficult task, bnt those who have
tk d it and failed can bo counts by
hundreds, while the first man to do tho
work properly without a knowledge of
the secret having been imparted to him
is yet to be named. Not so many years
ego there was only one person in the
country who conld do the work. "Where
he obtained his exclusive knowledge uo
*>io knows. On a trip to Philadelphia he
met Toaghill and the two became fust
friends. As a mark of his esteem tho
original expert taught Toughill tho art
uf tailing up money securely, and that is
as far us the knowledge has been extended.
The work consists ot piling up bags
containing 1,000 silver dollars each as
high as tho vault will permit. -When
built by the experts this silver wall is
as Solid nnd substantial as if built of
bricks and mortar, und it is well this is
so. If one of these walls should be constructed on wroug principles it would
surely full, and a full usually means serious injury to some one. Many men
have been hurt in attempting to learn
the art, and now Toughill and his
ftiend, who is in the west, occupy the
field alone.-���Philadelphia Record.
In Extremis.

worker upon the adjacent railway���who
Wos supposed to bo dying. The summons was brought by another old man.
the older brother of the stricken one.
Whilo ho was bustling about, making
preparations for departure, tho clergyman forgot momentarily the social
status of his visitor and asked, "Is he
in extremis?"
The old man was not going to be
beaten. "Aye, he's right in, your reverence." After a pause he added as a
clincher: "Clean in, poor chap. Right

as "the sickle of the sphinx." It is
now in the British museum and is believed to be nearly 4,000 years old.

needed something to make blood and
build up my system. My blood was watery
and thin, lacking* strength and vitality.
Last January a friend said:���" Why not
try Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve PilU?
They will supply the oxygen vour blood
needs and give you health and strength."
I told him I was very skeptical as to any
benefit that could be derived from any
proprietary medicine and had no faith in
them. There the matter rested until four
months ago, when reading so much about
what Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills
have done for so many people with impoverished blood, I concluded to give
them a trial. I have taken four boxes and
my unbelief so far as Dr. Ward's Blood
and Nerve Pills are concerned has been
entirely removed. They are a splendid
blood builder and strength restorer, and
an invaluable medicine for weak, enervated people. This has been my experience, they having given me strength of
body and strong healthy blood.

The Profesalonal Burglar.
Tho professional burglars belong to a
special class, stereotyped and exclusive,
forming a community of their own. These
men take a peculiar pride In their "profession," nntl n certain amount of union
exists between its members. If a burglar
Is In trouble, his friends will pay for the
defense, though they nro not above betraying each otlier occasionally if circumstances require it. Tho receiver of stolon
goods works hand in hand with theso men,
and without them tlio profits of tho robberies would bo small.
It la difficult to state ns to how fur ths
love of excitement and adventure instigates the burglar to crime; but that lt
plays an Important part, of this there can
bo no doubt. To creep along house tops
In the dark, to mount ladders and lay wire
traps for the upsetting of Inmates sliould
they run out to givo nn alarm, to screw
up theilonrsof dressing rooms and tampocr
with domestics, all these pursuits doubt*
less have their fasc'titatlon to tho criminal
mind.���Gentleman's Magazine.

Exposure Whilo at Sea Brought on an

Excruciating Agony.
Mr. Geo. W. Shaw, of Sandford, N.
S.. follows tho occupation of a fisher-
man.nnd liko all who pnrsne this arduous calling, is exposed freqnently to inclement weather. Some years ago, as
a result of exposure, Mr. Shaw was attacked by sciatica, nud for months
suffered intensely. He says the pain ho
endured wns something agonizing, and
he was not able to do auy work for
some months. His hip was drawn ont
ot shape by tho trouble, and the doctor
who attended him said that it had also
affectea the spine. After being under
the care of a doctor for several months
without getting relief, Mr. Shaw discontinued medical treatment, and resorted to tho use of plasters aud liniments, bnt with no better results. Ho
wns advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and finally decided to do so. After
using them for a conple of weeks, he
found a decided relief, und in about
two months' time overy traco of tho
trouble had disappeared, and ho has
not since been troubled with any illness. Mr. Shaw says he occasionally
takes n box of pills to ward off any possible recurrence of the trouble.
Those attacked with sciatica, rheumatism, and kindred troubles, will

It has hitherto been supposed that in
Egypt the practice of embalming the
bodies of the dead and forming them
into mummies was the most ancient
-method of sepulture, bnt Professor
Flinders Petrio, the well known Egyptologist, hns by recent excavations
thrown quite n new light upon this
question of the ancient method of disposing of the dead. At Deshasheh, a
placo about SO miles sonth of Cairo, he
has discovered a series of tombs, in the
coffins of which ho has fonnd complete
skeletons from which the flesh has been
carefully dissected, evidently previous
to burial. The coffins ore of admirable
workmanship, are made of sycamore
and aro in perfect preservation notwithstanding their 5,000 years' burial
in the sand. It remains to be proved by
further excavations whether the mutilation of the bodies was performed as a
ceremonial rite or whether this removal
of flesh from the bones points to cannibalism on the part of the ancient people���Chambers' Journal.

Very few people escape the enervating
influence of spring weather.
There is a dullness, drowsiness and
inaptitude for work on account of the
whole system being clogged up witli impurities accumulated during tho winter
Tlio liver is sluggish, the bowels inclined to be constipated, Hie blood impure,
and the entire organism is in need of a
thorough cleansing.
Of all "Spring Medicines," Burdock
Blood Bitters is the best.
It stimulates tlm sluggish liver to activity, improves the appetite, acts on the
bowels and kidneys, purifies and enriches
the blood, removes all poisonous products, and imparts new life and vigor to
those who are weak and debilitated.

Thunder Hill is a place where a
great deal of money has been sunk by
the Thunder Hill Company with unsatisfactory rasults. Anxious to sse
something of the locality and its prospects we recently visited this scene of
activity of former days. "Tho visitor
to Thunder Hill will find the best of
accommodation at J. Bullmnn's ranch.
There are no better hosts in the Province than Mr. and Mrs. Bullman and
a visit here is both pleasant and entertaining. Overlooking the Upper Columbia Lake, with its stretches of
comparatively open surroundings, it is
an ideal place for a mine, so far ae
climate, timber, water and communication are concerned. The well-known
mining engineer, James Brady, pins
his faith to Thunder Hill as confidently ns ever and he declares that it is but
a matter of time till bis ideas as to
the profitable working of these large
ore bodies existing in the district are
proved to hare been right from the
start. We hope Mt. Brady maybe
right for the realisation of hit prophecy would have a most healthy
effect not only ou Thunder Hill and its
vicinity bat on tbe whole of East
Kootenay. Leaving Thunder Hill on
a beautiful morning lart fall we were
able to travel on horseback over the
wholejof the locations at Thunder Hill.
The lead on which the locations art
made it believed to be identical witb
the Narth Star fissure.
Thisgroup is situated in the vicinity
of a pretty little lake, called Sun Lake
and consists of three claims : Sunset
No. 1, Elk, and Elk No. 2. A good
deal of development work has bttn
done. This consists of a cut 20 feet
over the width of the lead and exposes
a body of well mineralised grey quarti,
studded with iron pyrites, which
doubtless carry tbe values obtained by
assay for precious metals. Further
south there is another cross-cut, then
a tunnel showing" up tht lead to a
depth of thirty feet. Assays from
average tamplea of tht ore body here
expossd wsre made by Messrs. Cowell
and Harvey. The assays made by Mr.
Harvey averaged $7.20 in gold and .85
in silvsr. Mr. Cowell's assays showed
an average of $12.12 in gold and $4,50
in silver. There is another short tun-
uel showing up a further section of
the ore body. The lead is an iramtnst
body, and is divided into tbree sections by two slate horses, but for practical purposes it is one, and measures
140 feet from hanging to footwall. Its
direction is north and south with a
dip of apparently CO to the west. Wt
noticed soms outcrops of nice rose
quarts, which is such a favorite with
gold quarii miners. Tne development
work has been well designed as pre
liminary work to show up the featurts
of the lead. The property is located
ouly two miles from the lake and there
is a wtgou road on to tho ground.
There ia also first-class accommodation for workmen, there being a shack
nn ths ground, 82 ,feot by 12 feet, and
divided into two rooms. The property
is of course only in the prospecting
stagee but with suoh an immense ore-
body and the splendid facilities for
miniug which would in reality ho
quarrying, there is a fortune in thit'
property if th* values are maintained
at anything like those stated In tha
assay t.
On tht stmt ltad but further to tha
south is tht Thunder Hill mine whioh
has the history  which la regretted at
a failure.   The ore-body ia about 40ft.
wida  and   work   waa begun on what
has   since  proved to be a chimney of
galena ore.     A curlout feature of tht
lead at the point where work was be
gun on it waa that it had thifttd 50
feet to the east on its northern ttrikt.
Tht chimnty of   ort on   which  work
wat begun wat about 40 feet in diameter.   Tht mint wat practically worked
quarry  fashion,   the  rock  being
blasted out of a bugt face from holes
driven by large steam drills.   It could
tbut be worked  most tcooomically if
tbt value were there to repay the cost
of operating.   The ore averaged $22 in
ailver  and  gold, and  wt don't know
tbt percentage of lead contained in tht
galena.     There was no persistent ore-
body loch at it generally found in tht
galena mlnet in thit distriot but tht
lesd   wat  disseminated    in    grains
through tha quarti.     A concentrator
wat built on tht lake and a tramway
of a mile and a half run from tht mint
to tht conctntralor.   The wholt of tht
appliances   wtrt  well   and  carefully
selected and arranged and lt is a most
unfortnaatt thing that a mint to well
equipped should today bo forced to lie
idlt.     It shews the necessity of thorough dtvtlopmtnt of the most promising prospect to make certain that the
ore-body it of tuffioient volume to justify the establishment of the proposed
plant btfort anything it done towards
putting in plant and maohlntry.   Tht
mint  wat  In charge of Jat. Brady,
M.E., and he maintain! that tht pro-
ptrty it all right if operated, at tht
naturt of tht ore-body is tuoh that tht
ort will bt found in chimneys, that is
bantu gangut  alternating  with ort-
shutes.     A tunnel hat been dtiven 90
fttt, and there it a good thowing of
ort in tht tunnel.   That there appears
to bt a rtaionable prospect of tht exist-,
once of payable values on thit property
would  appear  to be evident from tht
fact that of 18 iscks of ore shipped tt
England for treatment before tht mine
was put in working thana the yield of
gold alone waa $9 per ton. We don't
think there hat ever been a clean-up
of the concentrator, so that the returns
then are uot known. If there is tbe
value, the property has everything
else in lis favor to make a great mine.
The property consists of   four claims.

Thit group is west of the Thunder
Hill group and is located on the western of two large leuds running north
and south through the country here.
It consists of four claims. There is a
good cabin on the property and a certain amount of development work has
been done. Power drills have been
used in development, and there Is on
the ground a steam boiler used in tbs

Kootenay, is in the oity, Mr. Colemorgan reports that there is considerable
activity in that section in the way of
prospecting snd general development
work. The Swansea, ht reports, to be
a fine copper proposition. Thit property hai been opened by a shaft which
hss been eunk to a depth of 90 feet.
Tbe shaft was sunk on the ledge. Tht
dip of the ledge oaussd it to leave the
shaft when a depth of 70 feet had been
attained. Crosscutting had just been
commenced at the 90 foot level when
the property was purchased from F.A.
Mulholland and associate! by the Derby
Mining company. The ledge is soms 15
feet wide and oarriea an average of
about 17 per cent copper and something
over $3 in gold. There are good shipping facilites. The ore can be sent from
Winderniere|by boat to Gollen, on the
main lint of tbe Canadian Pacific railway, from whence In can be taken to
tmelteri by rail.
