J. Abrahntnson, C. Abrahamson, and
W. Abrahamson have transferred

A report comes from Republic, in
the state of Washington, to the effect
that when the Boundary creek extension of the C. P. R. shall have been
completed, the ores from the camp
will be shipped into Canada for treatment at the Trail smelter.
-Referring to the Pretty Girl Group
the News Advertiser says: "What
names these prospectors do choose.
Eyeryone will wish a Pretty Girl luck
and so it is to be hoped that the English Syndicate, represented by Mr. W.
G. Mitchell-Innes, which has bought
or bonded the Pretty Girl Group, on
Horse Thief Creek, East Kootenay,
will do well."
The lieutenant-governor-in-council
has rescinded the order whereby free
miners may obtain relief from forfeiture due to the lapse of a free miners'
certificate. The new order in council
which will do into effect on November
15, rescinds the old resignation, and
does away with tbe possibility of relief in case one's certificate expires so
owners of claims had better beware of
letting their certificates run out.
The following claims have been recorded at Donald:���Aug. 10th Grey

Bell by T McNaught, at Kinbasket

It will be remembered that early this
season several prospectors left Golden
to prospoct the Canoe River district.
They were so well pleased with what
thoy found tbat they returned to Golden foi full supplies with a view to
putting in the winter on the new gold
field. We now heat- good news of them
and that there is every prospect of tho
new field being a pronounced success,
Some of the gold from there is in
Golden and shows good nuggets of the
precious metal. The scene of the new
find is fourteen days travel from Golden, but we would warn prospectors
against going in there at this season of
the year. We hope to have fuller information for publication shortly, but
those who are in tho "know" predict a
great rush there next season. Ths
Government should take steps to have
the trail north of Donald put in good
shape, as that will be the best route
for prospectors who desire to reach
this new El Dorado.
A freight train arrived at Moberly
Ihis afternoon to pass No, 2 express.
One of the brakemeu, by name Alick
Clark,was sent out to flag the express.
It is not known how it happened but
no sooner huel No. 2 started than Clark
was seon to roll off the track and was
picked up a dead man. It is supposed
he got between the oars of tho passenger train and was struck by one of
them with such violence that he was
killed. The body was brought on to
Golden by No. S, and an inquest will
probably bo held hore by Con
Dentist Coming.
Dr. Edmonds, dentist, of Revelstoke,
will visit Golden, professionally, tbe
first week in November, and will be at
the Kootenay House. We advise all
needing him to see him early ae he is
sure to be busy.

From the Midland Free Press.
Alexander McKenzie is one of the
well known residents of Brookholm,
Ont., where he has lived for many
years. A few years ago it was thought
that an early grave would be his; on
the countary, however, he is now stout
and strong, and the story of his recovery is on the lips of almost .all the
citizens of that burgh. The writer,
while visiting in the village, could not
fail to hear of his recovery, and with
the reporter's proverbial ncse for news
decided to put to the proof the gossip
of the village. The reporter visited
Mr. Mc Kenzie's home and was introduced to Mrs. McKenzie. Enquiry
elicited the information that Mr Mc-
Kenzio was not at home, but when informed as to his mission the lady freely
consented to tell the reporter of her
Husband's case. Her story runs like
this: "Mr. McKenzie is 40 years of
age, an engineer by profession, and is
now on a boat en the lakes. About
five years ago bi began to feel twinges
of rheumatism in different parts of the
body and limbs. For a time he did
not think much of it, but it gradually
got worse until the pain wns such that
he was unable to work, and could not
get rest at uights. I would have to
get up two or three times of a night,"
said Mrs. McKenzie to try and relieve
this intense suffering. Of course he
consulted a physician wbo pronounced
his trouble soiatic 'rheumatism. The
doctor did what he could for him. but
without giving any permanent relief.
This went on for several years sometimes he would be some better and try
to work, then tbe trouble would come
on again and be as bad as ever.
He was pulled down from being a
stout man of 180 pounds to about 130,
aud was so thin and miserable that all
who kntw him thought it would be
only a matter of a short 'hue until he
would be in his grave. For four years
did he thus drag along a miserable
existence, until in the beginning of
1897 some one recommended Dr. William's Pink Pills. Tired of medicine,
with some reluctance he procured a
hox and gave them a trial. Almost at '
once a change was perceptible and as he
kept on taking them, the improvement
continued, and he was soon able to be
about, Ry the time he had taken a
dozen boxes he was free from tbo
slightest twinge of rheumatism, aal
as stout and strong as he had been
before his affliction. So great is bis
faith in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that
when he left home recently to go up
the lake for the summer, he took thite
boxes with him as a preventative
against a possible recurrence of the
trouble. Mrs. McKenzie was quite
willing that this story should be made
public, and believes that she owis her
husband's life to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People.
Rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia,
partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia,
nervous headache, nervous prostration
and diseases depending upon humors in
the blood, such as scrofula, chronic
erysipelas, etc., all disappear before a
fair treatment with Dr. Williams'Pink
Pills. They give a healthy glow to
pale and sallow complexions. Sold by
all dealers or sent post paid at 50c a
box or six boxes for $2.50 by addres; -

A startling incident, of whioh Mr.
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows.
I was in a most dreadful condition;
My skin was almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue coated, pain continually in my back and sides, no appetite
���gradually growing weaker day by
day. Three physicians had given me
up. Fortunately a friend advised trying Electric Bitters; and to my great
joy and surprise, tho first bottle made
a decided improvement. I continued
their use for three weeks, and am now
a well man. I know they saved my
life and robbed the grave of another
victim." No one should fail to try
them. Only 50 cts, a bottlo, overy bottle guaranteed, nt any Drug Store.    5

The people of Donald are being
shamefully treated in regard to medical attendance. They contribute their
full share of the cost of maintaining a
doctor, aud they have had the services
of Dr. Cross, but that gentleman has
now been removed to Revelstcke; and
tho families of the railway employees
resident at Donald are without any
raedicul attendance whatever. A medical man at Revelstoke is next to useless as far as they are concerned, and
if Dr, Cross must be removed from
Donald, then arrangements should be
made by the Company for Dr. Taylor
of Uolden to attend at Donald. The
Donald people complain very much of
the injustice done to them by the company in respect to medical attendance,
and with good cause.
The result of the dredging operations
on the Columbia. River this year ap
pears to havo been practically nil
Although the wnter in the Windermere Lako was 14 inches higher than
last year the boat could not continue
traffic so long as last season. There is
thus something clearly wrong some
where, and as the matter at present
stands the season's dredging has dons
more harm than good, so far as navigation is concerned. We don't know
where the fault lies. Mr. Roy, Dominion Government Engineer, who
was in charge of the work has bean
seriously ill, and unable to overlook it
himself, but be should, as soon as ho
is well enough to get about, look carefully into this matter, and ascertain
how it is that the navigation of the
Columbia hus been damaged insieaad of
improved by the season's operations.
The people oi Windermere have blamed
the Navigation Company for not inn*
uing their steamers longer, but we nre
assured that Capt. Bacon did his nt-
most to continue traffic till he found it
impossible to get the loaded barge up
tbe river and there was no other course
open but to discontinue traflic.

Urgent steps should be taken by the
Dominion and Provincial Governments
to prevent the recurrence of the blocking of the channel of the Kickinghorse
as winter sets in. The channel is in
such condition that a very littlo expenditure in the way of clearing it out,
und by the eonstructien of wing-dams
at the place where the channel is obstructed, would ensure an outlet for
the water to an extent that would prevent blocking by ice. The mischief
done last year, and the anxiety caused
to many by the danger of un outbreak
of the river at some unexpected point,
are still fresh in the minds of onr
readers. The proverbial stitch iu time
saves nine, and now is the time to take
it. We hope the representations that
have been made by the Board of Trade
to the Dominion and Provincial Miuis-
ters of Public Works will have the
desired elect.

Gold Commissioner about people breaking into camps in the mountains aad
taking away tools, ete. Mr. Griffith
ia determined to put a stop to the practice where cases are brought before
him, and those who resort to this sort
of thing should take warning. No
mine-owner objects to his cabin aud
supplies being made use of, but when
they are wantonly destroyed and his
tools taken away, it is not much wonder that those whose generosity is
taken advantage of in this disreputable
way begin to kick.

And Serious  Losses
from use of Common
and Adulterated
Are Used by all Wise and
Economical Women.
The only pure, harmless and successful package dyes for home dyeing
are the Diamond Dyes,
Tbe imitation package dyes and the
common soap greaao mixturee are so
largely adulterated with foreign substances that they are positively dangerous to use and handle. No lady
who values her garments*and materials
will care to risk the coloring powers of
these adulterated dyeetufts. Suffice it
to say, the colors are dull, muddy and
lifeless, and cannot stand the most ordinary washing.
The Diamond Dyes have a long rec
ord of triumphs and well-done work
that has never been equalled in the
history of home dyes. In every part
of the world they give delight and
satiafaotlon, and are hailed as true
money eavers.
f, Easy, pleasant and profitable home
dyeing is only possible with the tested
and popular Diamond Dyes.
As there are still storekeepers who
sell interior package and soap grease
dyes (or the sake of long profits, see to
it that your dealer gives you the Diamond Dyes when you ask for them.
Every genuine package has the name
11 Diamond."
It ie poor judgment to pay ten cents
for adulterated dyes when you can buy
the guaranteed Diamond Dyes for the
same price.

Trouble Brewing.
Paris, Ootober 22.���A very remarkable change has como over French
opinion on the Fashodu question during the past 48 hours. Tho attitude
of the public is moro inflamed and
much more defiant. This ie partly due
to the tone oE the British press, but
more to the threatening manner of the
British Chancellor of the Exchequer,
tbe Hon. Sir Hicks-Beuoh which Lan-
torite calls "provocation lhat Is almost
a threat of war." The Municipal
Council ol Paris ia abused on all sides
for its exhortation to the government
te if possible avert war, It is reported
that the policy of France as definitely
stated to Great Britain includes tho
retention of Fashoda.
London, October 24.���Never since
tho coinmeneement of the dispute between Great Britain and France, not
even during the most acute stage of
the Niger differences, has the situation
looked so ominous as it does to-day.
The French naval and military authorities are making feverish preparations
for war, and though calm reigns at
the British dockyards at Portsmouth,
Chatham, Davenport, it is only calm
propareduess. Significant orders have
been arriving at these yards from the
Admiralty indicating the belief that
Oreat Britain and France are on th
eve of war.
Perth, Scotland, October 24.- In a
speech at Perth on Saturday Lord
Roseberry said: " If I were British
Minister of War now, no man should
rob me of one shread or jot of honor
to whicli the great work of civilization
culminating at Omdurman entitled
Oreat Britain and Egypt, If the present government does not feel stiong
enough to bear the weight of its laurels, I am willing to take any share
it may haiid over to rae."
The Paris correspondent of the Daily
Chronicle, claims to have full authority
to make the statement that ti e decision
has alrsady been taken by the French
government to speedily evacuate Fashoda. Dulcasse, the French Foreign
Minlsierwlll do his utmost to facilitate
a pacific solution of the question.
The French ambassador to Oreat
Britain. Baron do Counsel, ia on his
way across the channel. There is
good authority for the statement that
he ia the bearer of a proposition to
Lord Salisbury, which may satisfy
loth the British and French governments.
