might find an easy solution in tbis

between Kamloops and Calgury, hence
it is a very difficult matter to get these
cheques cashed at any place except the
bars where a good deal of the ready
cash finds its way. The merchants
receive so many cheques and so little
cash iu payment for goods that they
seldom have cash enough on band to
pay these cheques hence the men ranst

Development Companies,
The columns of eastern paper* are
filled with' advertisements containing
particulars as to the formation of mining development companies to operate
in British Columbia and elsewhere, in
Canada. Tht.se development companies are just wb��t the country most
needs and in their endeavors tp opim
up this country and at the- same time
make money for their promoter* and
shareholders the Era wishes them uu-
bo Hided success every one of them ���
But it hns occurred to us that those
companies whose directorates are en-
Mrelv composed of gentlemnn resident
in Eastern cities far removed from the
scene of active operation* have r.ot the
same prospects of ultimate success as
the companies whrse directors sre resident in close proximity to the mining
districts wherein the operations of the
company are carried on, for the reason
that those resident close to the iceno
of operations nre the better able to obtain reliable information from source*
wholly independent, of the persons dialing directly with the companies and
the danger of "wild cats" being unloaded oil the company I* greatly reduced. In addition to thi* a company
whose director* and manager* are- on
the spot are better able to act promptly
in' acquiring properties which very
often means that the youipauy can procure properties for a' good deal less
moriey.. than a company can whose
transactions must be passed upon by a
board resident thousands of mile* distant. 'We are firmly of opinion that
among the best stocks in tbe market
to-day ire the stocks of purely development .companies and that of the best
of these are th* stock* of companies
whose official* are right on the spot
prepared to handle any property that
appears advantageous to tb* companies'operations.

What Onr Drat'ier E-ll*nra Think of
Vni-iuna Mult.-. 4 ,,t Int. n.t |�� na.
SATURDAY. FEB. .0, 1897.
The Nelson Tribune thus refers to a
matter which is of vital Importance to
the people of East Kootenay ss well as
those of West Kootenay.
To such fair minded men as there
������' may be in the provincial legislature,
Thi Tribune direct* their sttention to
tha claim of West Kootenay district to
bsv* a land registry office established
within its limit*. For years the people of West Kootenay have been obliged
tb put up -with, the inconvenience of
Having sll matters ot registry snd
sssrch attended to at the land registry
office st Victoria. I* it not time tbat
the legislature cessed to study the convenience of the lswyers of Victoris snd
give the people of West Kootensy tsr*
dy justice? There is more business
originating in West Kootensy thsn
there is in Victoris, and it will be very
stupid of the legislature if it permits
the present injustice to continue.
If the resident* of West Kootensy
bsve good grounds for complsint
(whioh we are prepared to admit) thsn
the residents of East Kootenay have
doubly strong reason* to offer why
tbis District shou d also be provided
with a registry office. Ksmloop* hss
��� -land registry office but tor tome res-
son or other the government in its
wisdom hs* seen fit to ordsin tbst instead of East Kootenay being included
ib the Kamloops registry; sll papers
affecting bills to land in East Kootensy must bs sent s tew hundred mil**
beyond Kamloops to be registered;
namely at Viotoria. This arrangement
no doubt suits tbe Victoris people snd
particularly Victoria lawyers, but it is
a most unfsir arrangement for the
-resident* of East Kootensy who sre
celled upon to have their land transaction* delayed almost indefinitely.
< For Instsnoe a resident of Fort Steele
wishing to register papers effecting
Isnd might consider himself lucky il
he got h * papers back inside of six
weeks so loug as only a bi-weekly mail
1* furnished.
There exists nn good reason why
suck s registry should not be establish
ed at Donald or Oolden. If the government agent for the District has not
time to fulfill these duties then let him
be provided with a olerk who will relieve bim of a lot of tbe clerical work
whieb he is now celled upon to do snd
thus ths expense ot sn additional
officer will be avoided and a registry
oflUs will be within reasonable reach
of all parts of ths Distriot.
Or if the govern ment for sny reason
esnnot mske suoh sn srrsngsment ss
above pointed out, surely it cau he arranged that East and West Kootenay
be joined lor registration purposes and
that a reslrtrv office be established at
Revelstoke. Thi* would be a thousand
time* batter thsn ths present ridiculou*
and unbusinesslike arrangement, and
for ths present at least might satisfy
tb* demsnds of'our people In this re*
���pset.    .

It Is rsther amusing to observe in
almost every .mm of sou* of onr
Canadian new��p*p*r�� severe comment
upon ths methods adopted by some

* *   ��     -  .
It is to be hoped that the legislature
at the present session will take the
trouble to look into tbe existing Act
respecting licenses and abolish some nf
tbe provisions therein contained which
savor of the dav* of our forefathers
and are no longer adapted to the requirements of this Province. We refer
particularly to tbe licenses imposed
upon working miners and upon person*
desirous of carrying on a banking business. At present every miner must
pay $6.00 for a license to work, whioh
payment entitle* him to a free miner's
certificate a* well. Thi* came man ha*
also to pay a poll tax of 13.00, and
thu* for the privelege of doing a bit of
work in the couutry a man ha* to pay
���8.00, while the ���' bum" who hang*
around and live* off what the miner
earn*, escape* with a payment of 13.00
poll tax. There seems to be something
hardly square about such a deal as
.   *   ���   '
Them again a man with mean* wishes to start a private banking business.
There are place* in the province where
inch an institution would be a great
convenience to the people and at the
same time money in it for the banker.
But before this man can open bis
door* he mutt disgorge 1400 of hi*
good coin for the privelege of lending
money to his neighbors. Doubtless
one reply of tbe legislature to a request
for the abolition ot suoh license fee
would be tbst it is desirsble :o keep
the fee np in order to prevent irresponsible people from launching In suoh a
business. But doe* anyone think for
a moment that a paltry 1400 wonld
stand in the way of men who Intended
to *tart such business with tbe deliberate Intention of defrauding theyubiic?
surely not! But that same 1400 would,
and does, stsnd lu the way of men of
responsibility snd means who would
engsge in tbe business but tor sueb an
exorbitant license fee MOO represents
the profits on s Isrge smount of capital, but there would be no complaint
if the government wonld abolish ths
fss and require private bankers to deposit with the government a reasonable
amount as security, ths money to bs
invested by ths government at (air
rstes of interest snd ths Income paid
to ths depositor.
���   *   *
Tins matter Is of peculiar interest to
the people of East Kootenay for ths
reeson that all banking business now
has to be transacted either at Calgary
or at the Coast, and the result Is thst
n large amount of business that could
bs kspt in the distiict I* now sent outside and the profit* from that buslnsss
also go away from onr midst.

The statements made, according to a

Canada, at the ftiningConvention uow
being held in Montreal, to tbe effect
that Canada would never be a successful mining country, and that British
Columbia would not produce as much
, old in the coming as in the past thirty
years, may well have made a sensation.
A short time, sgo they might have
done some harm, but they come fortunately jnst a little too late, In view of
accomplished facts, to produce any

the motive whioh prompted them. We

From the Tilsonbury Observer. ���
The Rev. C. H. Back hns Is s resident
of Bayham township,' Elgin county.
Ont., and there I* probably no penon
io the county who I* better known ot
mora highly esteemed.   He is a mini**
ter of th* United Brethren Church. Be
also farms quite extensively, supsriu-
trading th* work and doing quite a
���bar* of it himself despite his advanced
age.   Bnt he wa* not always sble to
exert bimself s* be can today, as a few
years sgo he underwent an illness tbst
many feared would terminate bis life.
To s reporter who recently hsd a eon*
vsrsation with him th* rev. gentleman
gave the particular* of his illness snd
cure, with  permission  to mske the
ststement public.    The story as told
by Bsv. Mr. Bsckhus is substantially
as follows:���About three.years ago he
wa* taken ill and the doctor who waa
called in pronounced hi* trouble an attack of ia grippe.     He did not appear
to get any better snd a second doctor
ws* called in, but with no more sati��-
faetory result*, so far sea renewal of
health was concerned.   Following the
la grippe pain* of an excruciating nature located th.ms.lvss  in  hi*  body,
He grew weaker and weaker until at
last be  w**  perfectly  helpless.   He
could not sit down nor rise from s sitting posture without assistance,  with
thi* assistance he gained bia feet he
could hobble but a few  steps when he
wa* obligsd to bs put in a ohair again.
For five months these agonising pains
were endured.    But at last relief so
long delayed earns.    A friend urged
him  to try Dr. Willlsms' Pink Pills.
He yielded to the advice and had not
beta taking them long when th* longed for relief was noticed coming.    He
oould move more easily, snd the stiffness and pains began to leave his
joint*.    He continued the us. of the
pills for sons* time longer snd the cure
Was   com piste.     Seeing Mr. Backhus
now  it  would b* difficult to think of
bim as the crippled and helpless man
of those painful day*.    Mr. Baekkn*
- la now   past  hi* SOth year, but as he
���aid,   "by  the aid of Dr. William*'
Pink Pill* I .m  as -tide a* thos* ten
year* younger.   You can readily judge
of tht*  when I ttII you I laid forty
rod* of rail fence th is yean   I sm glad
to add my testimony In favor of Dr
Williams' Pink Pill*."
'     Dr.  William*' Pink Pills strike at
th* root of th* disease, driving It from
tbe system  and restoring the pstlsnt
to health and ���trength.    Iu easts of
paralysis, spinal  troubles,   locomotor

pills are superior to sll other treatment
Thay ar* also s specific for th* trouble)
which  mskss tbs lives of somsay
