Comment, on tbe Grandeur of tbe
Seenerj- of Britiah Columbia.
Dr, and Mrs, J.-H. Stallard, of San
Francisco, who are on their way to
Toronto to attend the meeting of the
British Association, stopped oii at
Golden on Monday (or the express
purpose of making a trip up the Columbia Valley as far as Windermere
Lake and return. Both the eminent
doctor and his lady, who had already
spent a fortnight in the Selkirks in
the vicinity of Mouut Albert and
Asulkan Glacier, and who also intend
to pay a second visit to Lake Louise,
near Laggan, were overflowing
with praises of tbe magnificent and
unlimited scenery of both the Selkirk
and Rooky Mountain ranges, and were
not at ail backward in declaring that
the mountains ot British Columbia
afforded sights more numerous aud
equal to Mount Blanc, Monte Rosa,
and Gorner Grat, the most famous in
all Enrope. The doctor, who represents tbe Lei ind Stanford University,
the University of California, .nd the
Academy of Sciences, of San Francisco,
expressed himself as much please.!
with the business-like appearance of
Golden. He thought, however, that
the town would be much benefitted if
more vigorous sanitary regulations
were put into effect. While in Toronto
Dr. Stallard will use bis influence to
Induce a number of tbe European
scientists to make a trip through onr
province, aud we wish him every success In his undertaking.

Danger of tbe Preaeut State of AiTulr.
Cati.lng an tCpl.len.le
Dr. Duncan, secretary to the Provincial Board if Health, and Cupt.
Philllpi-Wollay, Provincial Sanitary
Inspector, will report cn the result of
their vNIt to Golden. While generally
satisfied with the sanitary appearance
uf tho town, they find cause of complaint in the cluset system in vo-i-ite
us dangerous to the water sppply.
Oolden has a splendid water supply in
the wells sunk in the river gravel, but
the fact that the water in the wells
rises and falls with the Kickinghotse
river shows the porosity of tlio gravels
thrnuith which the well water drains.
The present closet system must therefore sooner or later affect the purity of
the water supply and poison it with
infectious germs, such as typhoid,
which might cause a serious epidemic
in the town. Dr. Duncan aud Capt,
Wolley are therefore of opinion thut
for the future sanitary safety of Ooldea
it is absolutely essential that the earth
closet system should be instituted, audi
that as soon as possible.
Dr. Duncan has recommended Dr.
Taylor for appointment by the Government as Health Officer for Golden, and
it will be bis duty to see that tha
sanitary laws nre complied with.
We are quite satisfied that the
Government Health Officers are right
in the views which they express, and
we hope that the people ot Golden will
co-operate with them in giving effect
to a system which will avoid the
present danger to the public health.

OteO ���*-
During laet session Senator itfclnnes
introducer! in the Senate the question
of the establishment of a mint for
Canmlii. There seems to have lieen
very little interest taken in t lie matter;
yet the subjoct is on*, of tli.' must
important that could have occupied
ihe attention of the Legislature. The
Senator who introduced the subject
hal gone to a lot of trouble to work up
information for the henoflt of. Iii
fellow senators, lint, when he lent him-
sell to the denunciation of tho paper
money system of Canada he adopted
views that are not consonant with the
science of money nor with the history
of, nud experience in, the use of paper
money. Just as Sir Archibald-Alison,
in iris celebrated history, proved beyond question that the virtues of a
soundly managed paper currency saved
England from becoming a province of
Prance, so a well regulated paper
money is of ten times more value to a
country than any gold or ail ver money.
Those who spoke on the question,
however, seemed to be under the impression lhat the main object of a
mint waa to make and circulate gold
coin in Canada in the same wny as it
is circulated In the United Stales. Now
we think the fact is incontrovertible
to (very student of the money problem
thnt the present gold system of the
United States has. proved a curse to
that country, and hence the great and
growing agitation for tbe restoration
of silver coinage. As a matter of fact
the minting of gold is carried on nt a
loss in every country in the world,
and if thc main object of a mint for
Canada were to mint gold then we
havo no hesitation in saying that this
country would he better without such
a mint. Hut il the object be Io mint
lioth gold and silver, and If the intention is to provide a full supply of
silver for small chiingo, then we admit
that such a mint would not only be a
serve to.the crown this monopoly'of
the mint. Thong- several of the
Australian Colonies have a mint it is
in reality a branch of the English
mint, and these branch mint! are not
allowed to mint nny silver, although
demands have been repeatedly made by
the colonial governments that suoh a
concession should tie made. The only
object in minting gold in Canada
would Iio for the purposes ol bank
reserves, as a gold circulation in any
country is a national waste, and, to a
country like Cenada, a naeless innovation. With silver It is very different.
The supply ol silver money is far loo
limited, and this limitation is a hindrance to commerce. It was stilted in
the course of the debate that owing to
the short supply of Canadian silver,
particularly ill the west, tlie banks
were forcd to send for supplies of
American silver to kcop things moving.
Thnt is a scandal on the financial
administration of Canada. 'With her
own mint, nnd the abundant production of silver Irom her own mines,
tliat difficulty could soon lie removed.
With ample paper and small silver
currency Canada might have ample
money for her commercial needs and
conld set the world an example in a
money system that would bid defiance
to financial crises or external disturbances such as must continue to be a
curse tn the United States under the
gold and banking- systems in vogue
there. These systems have their uses
we admit, hut snob uses are audi ns
should not. lie tolerated under any
established government. They are
criminal in their designs and objects,
and are simply a part of the machinery
that enables monopolies to flourish in
thc sister land* till the toilers will
rise in open revolt and the very foundations of the nation will be sapped by
the feuds between capital and labor.
There are not wanting signs of an
attempt to bring about a similar state
of things in Canada, and a gold
circulation wonld be one of the strong-
eat engines in the development of tbat
whioh every lover of Canada would
willingly do his utmost to avert.
We have just seen en article which
the Fort Steele Prospcc-or published a
month ago pitching into some remarks
that we had made on the political
position. The foresight of the Era
has already been shown to be far
ahead of that of the Prospector, for
we denounced Col. Baker aa a politician
and all his works, while our contemporary yet drew its Inspiration from
singing his praises. Yet within three
weeks of its laat eulogium on tha
gallant Colonel the,Prospector had to
turn, a somersault , Then again the
Pr* spoctor most unfairly misrepresents
us. We bold, anil have always held,
thnt the only .way to secure good
.���representation is for the representatives
of a political party'to meet from all
parts of a constituency and to select
the best candidate: that can be got.
Our contemporary wants to make ont
thnt' we seek to dictate to lhe people
at Fort Steele. We 'never made any
such ridiculous, proposition, and wa
reckon that il we were to misrepresent
our contemporary in a similar way It
WOMAN'S    Fg_NCjlISE     IN
AMEB.CA.    '
Recently a paragraph has been
going the rounds of the Toronto and
other portions of the Canadian preet
giving a shocking description of the
alleged working of woman's franchise
in Kansas. As we are supporters of
tbe cause of that franchise, and have
seen enough of the working of ita to
know thnt it is right, we recognised
the article in question to be a lying
slander on the women of the sister
nation, We rent it on to a lady in the
state referred to, and have received the
following reply from her: ���
ToruKA. Kansas, July 7th.
"Tour communication, with en
closed clipping, is received. If the
accuser of 'A Kansas Town' will
amend thi charge by naming the exact
locality where such a state of affairs is
alleged to exist we will investigate
and give you the result. To the best
of our knowledge and belief there Is no
Kansas town where 'oock-fighting,
craps, and poker are popular pastimes'
to any suoh extent as intimated. I
have lived in Kansas nearly 40 years,
and have had nt least average opportunities of observation, but my waking
snd sleeping hours have never been
disturbed by such 'game*.' Such
things are not carried on publicly in
Kansas. While the enfranchisement
ot women will not result in the immediate coming cf the millennium, it
is a long step towards it. When the
Cieator. said 'It is not good for man
to be alone' He left no recorded
exception of civil' government. We
infer that He was aware that nations
and states would need the feminine
tact, patience, faithfulness in details
and similar qualities that women are
admitted to exercise in domestic affairs.
Although women have municipal and
school suffrage here there are very few
office seekers among them. They are
more than willing that men should
hold the reins, but they are very particular in regard, to the character of
men who are candidates for office. It
is well understood that a man must
have at least a decent moral record If
he expects to receive the womens' vote.
Women who vote feel a growing
interest iu school and city affairs, In
this state, after women were allowed
to vote,- they secured a law requiring
cities to employ police matrons to care
for female prisoners. Last eve a large
delegation of Topeka women asked the
city council to enlarge the womens'
ward at the city prison tbat tbe
children and unfortunates may be
kept separate from tha more vioions
and depraved. Their request was
granted. There are -a few instances
among many in which the enfranchisement of women has led them towards
the things thst make peace. To my
mind this awakening in woman a
sense of responsioility towards their
brothers and sisters I* one of the beet
effects of their enfranchisement. Tha
results may not be immediately apparent, bu-. tha tendency ia towards
the light of a better day when the Ron
of righteousness shall arise wilh heal-
in His wings for tnie weary world."

would prove a great source of revenue r -"'V ******' Co!
to the government.   This,is evident
from the fact that the British Government makes an average , prpfit.. of
��2!i,000,000 per annum by ihe'robn-
opoly of the minting ol silver for the
whole of her colonies. It was stated
in the course of the debate thai Canada
haa the constitutional power to establish her own mint and do her own
coinage. If that Is so she then possesses a privilege that has hitherto
been refused to every other colony.
Indeed, so late as 1883 we believe it
was, instructions were issued to the
various Governors of the colonies not
to give their assent to any bill relating
to the currency or to minting until
such measure was first submitted to
Her Majesty's advisers. The object of
-uch provision wu evidently to pre.

controlling interest in our contemporary we beg to inform it tnat the Era
is In just as independent a position In
that resneot as is tha Prospector, and
another thing we can claim ir that the
Era is run Just as honestly in lhe
Interests of th* distriot, without any
of the nonsensical booming so evident
in the columns of our contemporary,
and which in the. end injures the
district in which tt la prsellsied. Suoh
4 policy is only in the interests of
speculator, and townsite boomers. If
our contemporary has ao little er
of common juttloe as to attempt the
ridicule of woman franchise,', then wa
are riot surprised that its
judgment is equally exeroiaet) In tha
misrepresentation of others with a
view to enabling it to eppasir to assume virtuous indignation -at oar
expense. Thi*. avldently entertains
tha Prospector, and doss nol harm ai.
DETrf LpttOT. ;J$ljp*NIE8.
In the interests '<of houa-4de mining
in the district It la our duty to draw
attention tb the manner in which two
local companies are operating. We
rtfer to th�� Alberta ahd Kootenay Co.
and, the Oolden and Fort Steele Co.
Neither of these companies has enough
capital paid up to thoroughly develop
one genuine mine.. Yet .these companies were formed professedly for
development purposes, arid if they
stuck to that" tbey might tp some
extent do good work by way of preliminary development, for that is really
all that their capital warrants them
in undertaking. Instead of this they
have adopted a three-stake boom policy
which is the curse of any mining
district, and have men staking out
prospects all oyer the country. Such
a policy can only result in injury to
the eompanies themselves and to the
district in which they are operating,
We hope to see the directors of each
company take into consideration the
policy of which we make complaint as
a matter of publio interest, and that
they will adopt a system more within
their province and means, namely the
selection ol prospects within ihe distriot and the prosecution of preliminary
development work on suoh prospects.
Such a policy would he more in the
interests of thn district and of the
companies referred to.

The following reference to the ex-
hlWt at tha Chatham Wagon Mann*
lecturing Company at the Winnipeg
Industrial Fair is from th. Manitoba
Fias Press:
Tha Chatham Manafaetttrlog Company, of Chatham, Ont., are to be
found In tha centre ot the machinery
hall, where their novel combination
wagon box, hay and stock rack has
attracted considerable attention. The
many improvements lately made in the
Chatham wagon so grestlv adds to its
beauty, lightness, durability, ease of
draft and carrying capacity that it has
been fittingly called tha New Chatham.
Canadians will note with pride that
the Chatham wagon steads without a
rival on tha continent, the judges ut'
tha World's Fair having glvsn it an
unqualified certificate in the shape ot a
bronse medal and diploma, One of
the great Improvements in connection
with the Chatham is Van Allen's
patent giant arms, pronounced by the
judges ot vehicles at the World's Fair
to be the greetest improvement ever
made in wagon building, which does
away with the old time breaking potpt
of axles, renders miss rods unnecessary and the axles unbreakable. An
examination of these axles shows how
the weight ef the load, Instead ot resting In the centre is thrown upon the
axle close te the wheel, wbioh anybody with a moment's thought can see
to be a vast improvement. Then the
malleable adjustable stakes, which ana
practically unbreakable, admit of tbe
bolster being plated from end to end,
strengthening it, and making It possi
ble with a lew minutes' work to alter
width ol bolster to admit-a larger box
rack or platform If desired. A most
welcome feature in connection with
these wagons is tbe new combination
box, hay and stock rack. It is so
simple the ordinary box can be taken
off in about a minute, weighs very
little, aud if desired can be msde into
�� stock rack or high box for carrying
full bags ot wheat untied in a few
seconds. Premier Green way purchased
both of these implements. The firm
also show an improved oscillating bobsleigh and a lorry which is unequalled
for durability in' Canada. The exhibit
is in oharge ef Mr. D. R. Van Allen
and Mr. A. E. Merritt, two gentlemen
from the headquarters at" Chatham.
They will go te the fairs at Brandon,
Carberry, and Portage la Prairie,
where they will be pleased to point
out all the excellencies of tbeir display,
and ail farmeta should take particular
pains to see tbe new Chathrm wagon.

A Fashionable and   Money   gavlag
Home dyeing la now one of the true
home arts, a work that is artistic, an
occupation that haa become pleasant
and fashionable. People in easy eir-
-cumstances who give their attention to
the work of home dyeing also find it a
���most profitable recreation.
Tbit increased interest in dyeing
work, and: the great success that
attends It, comes from the use of the
���celebrated Diamond Dyes that are so
-easy to use, so true to color, so pure
and brilliant, so fast and unfading.
A costly wool or silk dress that haa
become spotted or faded can in a very
short space of time be marie equal to
new. No garments or materials need
be thrown away or sold to the secondhand dealer because of lost or dingy
���colors. An outlay of from ten to
twenty cent's tor Diamond Dyes will
recreate every piece and save many
If you have not yet begun the work
of home dyeing, let us assure you that
you miss a pleasure, and lose money
aa well. Look np your, faded and dis*
colored garments at once, and use the
Diamond Dyes; yon will be surprised
with your success. 09

We notice that there is active agitation in tile east for a road Iieing
opened to the Yukon. Well, the route
ia ready and only awaits to be put
into condition (or traffic. We refer to
the way by the Columbia Valley,
which Dr. D.iwaon described years
ago as sCording 800 miles of valley
and terrace land without crossing a
mountain. This route would connect
with the C.P.R. line at Donald, and
would open up the rich mineral country
ot Cariboo and Cassiar on the way to
tha Yukon.
"Last summer one of our grand
children waa siok with a severe bowel

We hear many complaints about tha
want of expedition in tha delay in the,
delivery of C.P.R. telegrsms. We do
not know what is the cause of the'
trouble complained of, but one' reason
may be found in the Donald transmitting office where, we believe, the staff
is not large enough to cope with tlie

grains Is an lmportahi matter to the

taken by the officers who are responsible for the more expeditious woVklng

ware males and 6 females. The total
number of hospital days was 883,
making an average stay io hospital of

alcoholic wbo dlad two daya attar
admission. Tha percentage of daatha
waa 2.7.

Tbe improvements in tha kitchen
and bath-room have proved great eon*
venieuces. The extension of tbe general
ward will provide a much needed
Increase ot accommodation when completed. The new operating room, with
ita new and modem accessories, will
also be a great improvement on the old
one. Since the old operating room baa
bean fitted np as a dispensary the
facilities for dispensing have hi
greatly Increased. The fencing of the
ground, has, bssidss adding to the
beauty of tha premises, vary effectively
kept wandering twine, oews, eta., at a
more convenient distance than formerly. I hope in tbe sear future to

We have received word that tha
party of Alpine climbers accompanying
Prot. Fay, of Boston, succeeded on
Tuesday In reaching the summit of
Mount Lefroy. This Is the same
mountain on whioh tha late Mr.
Abbott, of New York, lost his lite
Isst August in attempting to scale.
An understanding haa been arrived
at between tbe Upper Columbia Navigation and Tramway Co., Major Clohecy, and C. Cartwright, by wbioh a
wharf will be built at Carbonate at
tbeir joint expense. Such a whart
will be a great public oonvenienoe in
view ot the prospective activity In the
MoMurdo district.
We are Informed that a trail It urgently wanted along tha right hand
side of the Ottertail river so aa to give
access to Frenchman's creek. A considerable amount of development work
Is likely to be dona there and wherever
miners show their determination to do
development work they should be assisted in every possible way.

Traamamt Outcome.
There ie mora worry ��M.neo.ed with
the routine life of the average clergyman than moat people Imagine. His
duties are multifarious, aad it ia little
wonder that he frequently becomes the
victim of nervous exhaustion, insomnia, eto. In thia condition Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills aot more speedily
upon the nervous system than any
other medioine, and promptly restore
the user to a normal state of health.
Rev. Wm. Clarke, a rialng young
Methodist minister stationed at Orono,
Ont, says:���"I have derived great
benefit from the uee of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I fonnd tbat when I attempted to etudy I would, become
drowsy and could not apply myself to
my work. My digestion waa very bad,
and my nervous system seemed to be
out of gear. At first I paid but little
attention to the matter, bnt found
myself growing worse. At this time
I was stationed at Fort Stewart, Ont.,
Md waa boarding at tha borne of a
Storekeeper, wbo advlaed me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I decided to do
to, and���thanka to thia medioine���I
am again restored to good health,
Under these circumstances I feel it my
duty to say a good word (or Dr. WU*
Hams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills oure by
going to the root of the disease. Tbey
renew and build up the blood, and
strengthen tbe nerves, thus driving
disease (rom the system. Avoid imitations by insisting that every box
you purchase Is enclosed In a wrapper

The necessity of some Improvement
being effected to the trail between
Carbonate and McMurdo Basin Ia
urgent. Recent storms have blocked
the way with timber, and as a large
quantity of supplies has to be sent In
to the camps doing development work
the trail should be attended to at onoe.
