At tht let jam in tht Kicking Hone
gavi no appearance of breaking op
and tht watir wit beginning to overflow on tht tut itiit ol tht bridge,
the Oolden Town Committee waited on
the Government Agent, Mr. Griffith,
on Saturday morning and asked thai
he should take steps to open thi river.
Thi committee itated the C. P. B.
would co-operate with the Government
in opening tht river.
llr. Griffith replied that there wss
not a dollar available, but he would
telegraph to the Government and to
Mr. Niblock, of the C. P. B��� and it
the work was authorised, as he hsd
no doubt it would be, he would consul.
Mr. Erickten with a view to having the
work put in hand.
Later in the day Mr. Griffith received information from Mr. Niblock thai
the C. F. R would co-operate, and
Col. Baker wired "Take any itept you
mar deem advisable."
On Monday morning a gang of men
wat put on under J. Good to examine
the river and locate the jam. After
several trial blasts it wss found that
tbe jam wat on the second bar belon

Owing to the mow and slush beneath,
which backed the water. The C.P.B.
men, who had been engaged in banking
the river to prevent the water over
flowing the tide tracki, were then
ordered lo join forces with the Govern
ment. and Mr. Grifflith offered time
and a half nnd a free tupper to those
that would join in the work of open
ing the river. The ice Wat 18 inohe-
to two feet thick and a tttrt wis
made to out a channel through the
length of the block, powder being
largely uttd in the operation. Ai

At a meeting of the directors of the
War Eagle Consolidated it watdi
oided to continue the present policy ot
deferring ihipments ot ore until rail-
wty connection is made with the mine,
when tO a ton will be saved in reduc

Major Clohecy declared the Kootenuy
Consolidated Company will act unless
they get that toad up the Beaver
valley.
The Manitoba Free Press ttvt: "A
party of five prospectors left on Friday
for tin Peace River country after a
day's atop over in the city, to spend a
.ear or two. Their names were Bruce
Wirk. M. F. Welch, W. Billing, 0. E
Sirhullz and J Byrne. They all come
from Detroit and are going out on the
advice of a gentleman who ment many
veers in that country. The party have
gone in hy the Elraouion route and
vill camp by one of ihe big northern
lakes until spring."

Another Tertian of the Afl-ln-L.tter
From John Haekny
Te Ihe Editor of The Golden Era.
Sin,���In yonr lut ittui ot Tub Era
you htvt concocted an editorial whicli
I challenge as a tltstie of elaborated
falsehood from beginning to end. An
editorial is expected to contaiu fuels.
and an editor of any newspaner is
held responsible for what that editor
ml contains, and especially so in the
case of to respectable a pa per as the
Golden Era. Either you linvedrawn
largely on your own imngiuntion, oi
yonr informants were somo of those
who never contributed t cent or took
any interest in tht building of tin.
churoh at Windermere.
The erection of a Presbyterian
chnrch at Windermere was undertaken by Mr. McKinuon, the Piesby
lerian Missionary, who obtained ..
considerable turn for that purpose tiom
the funds of the Pre-diy erisn Board.
I wrote out headings for a subscription
Ust in aid of that building and my
family and other promo-ors com ri bun d
and collected so that I am in a position to know that the church in
Windermere wus built tor a Presbyterian church and nothing else. Nm
eveu a hint, mucli less an uinlerstniid
ihi-, thst il might be used for a school
Your insulting charge thnt I, as th.
writer of a letter, nne of the trustee-,
as you designate me, in rid using tu
give the building as a school, ha. e
caused the church *o Mt an example
of gross breach of faith. The publi
city of such a statement it t liM oi
my oharncter. a malicious lie. Al one
ot the Building Committee I have
acted in good faith. The buildiup
Hiiished for the Presbyterian l.od.i.
my authority ended. I would uoi
in .ir pan authority that did not belong
to me, ind commit an tggregioiu-
blunder and incur blame.
Immediately after thia request came
to tne I wrote to the Superintendent of
Missions (Dr. Robertson) informing
him of the withes ot the Winder... te
people and stated that Ihe church
building was idle, io lhat tht Church
Authorities could arranut for them
snivel. I am anxious io tee a public
���chool opened iu Windermere instead
of trying to frustrate it. The oi tiling of a school in Windermere is very
much needed for tbe children there,
and the opening of a church for th.
adults of Windermere is also very
essential. Yours truly,

THE KOOTENAY HOUSE LICENSE
The question of the license of the
Kootenay House has been a subject of
much discussion since our last issue,
and wo take this opportunity of saying
that we entirely concur with tbe action
of the Stipendiary Magistrate in refus
ing the license. Mr. l.riflitlt could
ed in any other way.
consistently with his duty, in tho
face of the facts. A public officer
always deservos credit for, and the
support of the public in, doing his
duty, For some time there have been
reports as to gambling carried on, and
the amount of money lost, ut the Kootenay House. At the beginning of last
week the son of a well known rancher
in the district reported to tho Magistrate thut he had been put into an
incapable state at the Kootenay House
and then been skinned of over 1800,
Constable Cox saw the landlord of the
Koctenny House anil he agreed to
refund 8(iJ0, taking a receipt for the
amount "on account." An effort was
then made to get the other 8200 alleged
to have lieen   lost. Tbe landlord
offered half this amount in full
settlement, but this wns refused nnd
so tho mutter stands. The licenses of
the Columbia House, Queen's Hotel,
and the Kootenay House fell in at the
sume time last week aud in faco of
the facts reported to him Ihe Magistrate dare not grant a renewal for tbe
Kootenay House to the parties who held
the license when -this affair occurred
or anyone connected with them. He
thereforo refused the license, but said
that if a unanimous   peiitiou   were
rence, but in the public interest and
safety no license should be gtfen to
tho house while those who were mixed
up iu this affair are in any way connected with it. We want to tee Golden a clean town. So do many of our
fellow citizens, and It there was any
chance of this license being renewed
we know that an overwhelming petition would at'once be sent in against,
it. It is a question whet hor the police
should lei ihe matter stand whoro it
is, and whether it is not their duty to
go further and to enter n prosecution
on the facts within their knowledge.
THE C. P. R. RATES.
Tho Hon. Mr. Sifton is deserving of
the public thanks for his pronouncement in regard to the C.P.R. charges.
Il was a condition of the concessions
for the Crow's Nest road that the rates
should be reduced, but no reduction on
this section of the line has yet boon
announced. Oolden suffers and has

inflicted on the town by a rata which
is equal to a through rate to Vancouver and back again to Oolden, an extra
haul of 1000 miles. Such an anomaly
should not exist. Surely it would bo
better for the C. P. R. to mako these

there sre those in Golden who want to
see the hotels decently conducted
rather than ns a danger to the public.
They had the courage of their opinions
and refused to sign the petiiion. They
thus saved the honor and ��� credit of
their town. We have nothing to uy
against those who signed the petition.
Some no doubt signed it for business
reasons, or for the sake of the trade of
the house, or as a mattor of personal

man put his name to it as a mark of
approval of the conduct of the house in
the matter complained of. We trust
our fellow citizens have ten much

Swansea, E. K., November 18.���
Tlio weather has been a little disagreeable for the past few dtyt, but
doee not retard to any extent . the
improvements going on in this locality.
The 0. P. R. supply read from Wardner to Goat River is nearing completion. As soon as road gangs connect,
work on Moyie Lake will bo be proceeded witb. The men, 50 in number,
working west of the road, are at the
foot of upper Moyie Lake, whilst Mr.
David McBeath has 250 men coming
east with the rosd. He it now this
side of Goat River summit, some 40
miles from Kootenay Lake, There is
agap to be completed of 28 miles, whioh
will be done in nbout two weeks. W.
H Armstrong, superintendent of
division from Swansea to Goat River,
somo 80 miles, is expected here from
Vsncouver with plant to carry on the
tunnel und heavy rook work along the
lake about the first of December.
Fully 1000 men will be employed at
this point during the next six months
on grade of railway, timber, and tie
making.
The survey of tho townsite of Swansea is nearing completion, Lots will
be put on the market nbout tho first
of tho yesr. Wo will then have telegraph communication with For! Steele.
A newspaper will bo established here
early next month, We have now
three good hotels for the accommodation of the public. All are doing a
good business.

and is sawing at the rate of from HO to
90 thousand feet weekly,

The Golden Town Committee are
seriously to blame for their neglect
over the ice jam in tho Kicking Horse.
They know the river, and they offered
to givo their services when elected to
watch over the interests of the town.
Yet it was Saturday morning before
they saw the Government Agent on
the subject. They took no further
interest or part in having the work
put in hand or arranging it, whereas
we think they should have given the
C. P. R. and Government agent all
the cooperation and assistance in their
power.
The inqueston on the fatal railway
accident in the Calgarv district last
week shows the necessity fur legislation to protect railway employees
from overwork. Overworked employee! and railway accidenit go together.
The driver stated he had been 48 hours
at a stretoh on duty, and similarly
exhausting services bad been demanded
all along. It the C. P R. will not
limit tho hours of their employees in
their own interest, then it will be
duty of the Dominion Parliament to
devise leglislation to meet the care.
The World hat been making a greet
noise and abusing the Government
because Mr. Templeton has been made
Senator Instead of Mr. McLaggsn.
We desire to say thut the action of the
Government meeti with the lull
approval of the Government supporters
In this part of the country where the
World is regarded ii a time temr
ai thown by iti scandalous support of
the Turner Government in ordei to get
the crumbs thit fill from their table.
We notice thit the World now takes
iti politics from the Dummuir organ
at Victoria, ind ridicules the recent
Liberal Conrention. So much for lu
loyalty to the Liberal party.

suffering from a trouble quite commou

slokness the doctors deemed an operation necessary, Mrs.Saunders wisely
refused to submit to the decision of the
medical staff, and decided to trv the
virtues ol Paine's Celery Compound
After being blessed with a complete
oure, Mrs. Saunders wrote aa follows
It li with muoh pleasure that I

Paine's Celery Compound. I was a
great sufferer from severe attacks of
neuralgia in the left ovary. At timet
the attacks were so aocute that I
thought I would Ion my reason.
"Several doctors treated me, and I
wai a patient in St. Joseph's hospital,
Hamilton. I obtained no relief from
medical treatment. The doctors said
unless I had the ovary taken away I
could not be cured.
"Instead of submitting to tbe operation I used Paine's Celery Compound,
and I am thankful your valuable
medicine cured me. I feel like a new

THE PECULIARITIES OF THIS
WORD.
No -.sme on Earth *o Famous
-Wo Name More Widely
Imitated.
No name on earth, perhaps, is to
well known, mora peculiarly con-
it ructed or more widely imitated
than the word DODD. It possesses a peculiarity that makes it
stand out prominently and
fastens it in the memory. It contains four letters, but only two letten
of the alphabet. Everyone knowi tbit
the first kidney remedy ever punned
or sold was named DODD'S. Their
disco-cry startled the medical profession the world over.and revolutionised
the treatment of kidney diseases.
No imitator has ever succeeded in
constructing a' name possessing the
peculiarity of DODD, though ihey
nearly all adopt nktnes as similar as
possible In'the sound and construction
of this.' Their foolishness prtreiits
them realising that attempt to imitate
increase the fame of Dodd's Kidney
Pills.
Why is the name "Dodd's Kidney
Pills" imitated? At well ask why are
diamond! and gold imitated. Because
diamond! are the moit precious gems,
gold Ihe most precious metal. Dodd's
Kidney Pills are imitated because they
are the moit valuable medicine the
world hai ever known.
No medicine wai ever named kidney
villi till years of medical research
gave Dodd's Kidney Pills to the world.
No medicine ever cured Bright's dis.
ease except Dodd's Kidney Pills. No
other medicine has cured as many
cases of Rheumatism, Diabetes, Heart
Disease, Lumbago, Dropsy, Female
weakness, and otlier kidney di-euses
as Dodd's Kidney Pills have. It is
universally known that Ihey have
never failed lo cure these diseases,
hence they ire io widely md sham-
lessly imitated. 24lto

that Mr. Bostock displays in hi* constituency ii remarkable. Since hli

the publio requirements of the dlitriot,
and. although hli term of office hit
little more thin commenced, ho hai
dune much in tht way of obtaining

needed for publio worki. But tht
strongest claim that Mr. Bostock hu
on thi good will of tht general publio
ii hit hatred of political corruption
and monopolies of all kinds. Ht hat
informed the Miner that he It intently
