lUnulur Monthly Meeting"Dnalneas
Truii sauted*
The monthly meeting of the Miner's
Association was held at the Columbia
House on Tuesday tiiirht. Present:
Messrs M. and W. Dainard, W. Mc-
Neish. T. Mercier, H. 0. Lowe, J. C.
.loliffe, H. G. Parson. A. F. Macauly,
E A. Hagireii, J. Noble, F. Berth tine,
C' A. Warren, Copt, Bacon. In the
absence of the President, M. Dainard
was voted to the chair.
The Gold Commissioner wrote: "I
am requested by tbo Provincial Secretary to inform you that the matter
of extra appropriations for wagon
roads in the Northern Division will receive every consideration when the estimates are brought before the next session of the Legislature."
On the question of providing a room
for members, W. MoN ish offered to
provide such, furnished and fitted with
mineral show case, for f 10 a month.
The members expressed their appreciation of the reasonable proposition submitted by Mr.McNeish, and ns it became a question of providing the
necessary funds it was resolved, on
the motion of H. G. Lowe, seconded
by A. F. Macaulay, that the matter lie
discussed at tnext meeting, and that
the Secretary notify members
A cirular was read from the Committee of the Omaha Exhibition, and
it was resolved that nothing could be
done in the matter as it was too late
to obtain exhibits.
The Secretary stated that Mr. Watts,
of Liverpool, had called on him and
pointed out tbut the mineral resources
of the Province were very poorly represented at the Imperial Institute. He
suggested that the attention of the
Government should be drawn to the
matter with a view to having the de
feet remedied. On the motion of W.
McNeish seconded by Capt. Bacon, it
was resolved to draw the attention of
the Government to the matter.
On the motion of H (). Lowe,
seconded by T. Mercier, it was resolved
to urge upon the Government the
necessity of making a ruprcsenative
exhibit of mineral resources of the district ut the coming Paris   Kxhibatiou.
An intersesting discussion took
place on the question of re-location.
It was opened by the Chairman, who
pointed out that the present system of
locating claims without doing assessment on them, and again relocating
them in the name of some body else,
was a means of doing much injury to
the Mineral industry, and resulted in
driving out capitalists who would
otherwise he ready to take up bona Adc
investments. He moved that when a
claim has been located and held lor a
year without any assesment work be-
iog done on it, except from sickness or
other reasonable cause, no person shall
relocate such claim until be has
a permit from the Gold Commissioner,
and has made a declaration that the
original holder has no interest in such
re-location, provided that if no such
permit bo granted within 60 days from
the oxpiry ol the term for assessment
work, a claim may bo re-located bv
any person, including the original
holder thereof,
J. Noble seconded the motion.
H. G. Low moved, T. Mercier seconded An aniennient that it is desirable
that the law remain as it is.
A Macaulay comidered the fa ih of
the prosont law was that u man coulii
not re-locate in his own name.
The amendment was carried.
The Chairman then moved that the
period for doing assessment work on
all claims expire on the Hist Dccembei
in each year, provided that in the cast.
of claims located between January snd
July, the period for doing assessment
work shall expire illst December of tho
same year, but in the ciue of locations
made between July 1st and Dec. 31st.
the period fur the first year's assessment snail be calculated to Dee. illst,
of the year ensuing. He contended
that by the present law the a��sessment
work had to be wasted to a great ex
tent. His suggestion would help the
\V. McNeish agreed with tbe idea,
and seconded the motion.
A Macaulay said this matter should
he discussed by a fuller meeting.
The secretary said they would not
get a more representative meeting.

C. P. R. Ball at Field.
.On Monday night tho annual ball
given uy the C. P, It employes at
Field was held at 511. Stephen House,
and that it was a pronounced success
was the unanimous verdict of the
guests of the evening. The use of the
dining hall had been granted for the
occasion, and in charge of G. Miiiette
had been nicely decoiated, while the
general arrangements made by Mrs.
Marsh, tho manageress, and the assistance that she bad given to the committee were most complete for the comfort of I he guests. The orchestra was
from Calgary .and consisted of M.
Augade (violin), W. Ritchie (cornet),
C F. Coiner (trombone), and L. Orr
(pianist). The music was excellent,
and with this and the hospitality of
the committee we have rarely seen a
more enjoyable evening spent, dancing
being kept up till 4 a.m. Extras were
played by Misses AVells, McKay, Car-
dell and Turiibiill. Mr. Comer acted as
M. C. Many of tho ladies were most
handsomely gowned, and to Miss Car-
dell, of Canmore, belongs tho honor of
being "Belle nf the Ball." The committee, who deserve much credit for
the success of the gathering, consisted
of tho following: Messrs. Flett, chairman; H. 0. Killeen, secretary; Inches,
Oriuiston, Jones, Pratt, Marsh, Johnson, McKonly, Walker, Chaput,
Spratt, Carlin, The secretary, Mr.
Killeen, devoted himself heart and

a hitch. Tho following is tho list of

Tbe annual social event of Golden
is the Hospital Ball. '.'his fixture
came off on Wednesday night at the
Alexander hall and was tho most successful of any that had preceded it.
The hall was beautifully decorated, the
handiwork of Hon. F. W. Ayliner,
Capt. Bacon, Dr. Taylor and Mr. Plow
right, and the laying out of tho supper
tables was a most effective display, re
fleeting great credit on thovtaste of the
ladios who undertook this part of the
arrangements: Mesdames C. H. Par-
Son and Plowrtght, and Misses Harrison and Holt. There was also a
magnificent supply of viands, Mrs.
Wells having arranged with tho ladies
for the supply. Chief among these
were tbe ice cream supplied by Mrs.
J. C. Greene, of the Queen's Hotel,
and the cakes sent by Mrs. Barry, from
the Kooteuay House. The Hon. F. W.
Ayliner kindly gave up his rooms to
the ladies for the purpose of laying out
(he supper. Tho music was supplied
by Messrs. Augade (violin), Ritchie
(cornet), and Orr (piano), of Calgary.
Mr. Warren acted ns M. C, and Messrs
C. H. Parson and Warren were the
general committee for carrying out tho)
arrangements for tbo bull In these'
they achieved the utmost success. The
ballroom presentod a galaxy of youth
and beauty, several of the dresses being particularly striking. Where the
scene was nil so effective it would be
invidious on our part to pick out the
most, striking. Tbo honor of being the
"Belle of the Ball" belongs to Miss
Doyle. Dancing was kept up till

H. Parson. Miss Wells and Mr. Plow-
right. Visitors were present from
Anthracite. Field, Donald and other
parts of the district but as we have
not b��en able to get a complete list, we
ba/e to omit it. 85 to 40 couples took
part in the ball and enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

This winter's experience of the overflow uf the Kickingnorse shows the
necessity that exists for some radical
action being taken to prevent a recurrence of the trouble. If. appears that
owing to the wash from the mountains
thobed of the river at its junction with
the Columbia has become filled up to
such an extent us to form bars, which
destroy tbo force of the current by tho
otherwise natural fall and which current lias not therefore been sufficient to
prevent the river being blocked with
ice brought down tbo canyon. Wo
dont profess to bo experts at ice
engineering, but there seems to bo no
doubt that tho work already done this
season at a considerable cost has been
fruitless. We dont profess to know
what would have been the best way to
do the work though'every second man
wo meet seems to know all about it
and every man who has anything to
say on tbo subject sccins to have a
differeut idea. One thing appears to
be pretty clear, and that is that when
the open cut was made it should have
been kept open. "We understand the C.
l\ !{. offered to co-operate with the
Government in doing this and that is
the course that should plainly have
been taken, as it would have avoided
any repetition of the Hooding ot the
town at nil events, oven if it bad not
had the desired effect of opening the
channel, All this, however, points to
the necessity of effective steps being
taken in tbe future. These steps should
probably consist in dredging out the
bars which have formed near the junction of the Kicking Horse and Columbia Rivers, and in addition to that
an effectivo system of dyking should
bo put In hand early in the spring.
The object of this dyking should bo to
confine the waters of tho river to a
channel so that the sweep of tho
water would keep it open. Though
considerable expense at first there can
be little doubt but. such a system would
lie the most economical in tho end.
Just who should do it is the difficulty.
The Dominion Government own tho
townsito, but tbe Provincial Government receive the taxation, so that a
fair proposition would bo that the cost
should bo divided hctweon tbo Provincial and Dominion Governments, so far
as the dyking is concerned, while the
dredging out of the obstructions referred to in the river is undoubtedly a
purely Dominion work. The
Dominion Government has just
revalued the Golden town lands
with a view to disposing of them or
asking those who have entered into
possession to pay for their lots. We
suggest that these moneys should be
set aside as a fund for tho necessary
dyking work, and no doubt means will
bo found for providing any futher
moneys required We suggest to the
people of Golden that they should be
ulive on this question and agitate it in
time, so that thers may be ample opportunity of taking steps to urge on
the powers that lo the necessity of
urgent attention being given to the
works referred to.
Mr. Msrpole has inaugurated on the
Pacific Division what is known ns the
Brown system of dealing with railway
employes. The principle of this system
is that a man who has made a mistake
or become involved in accident, and is
punished by temporary suspension, is a
much more valuable man to the company after re-instateinent. as he is invariably more careful, Tho working
of the system on the Pacific Dlvison
has given great satisfaction both to the
employes and to General Superintendent Msrpole himself.

"Some five or six years ago 1 had a bad
cough and got so low with it that 1 could
not sit up long tit a time," writes Mrs. Mit-
tie Gray, of New London, Union Ho., Ark.
"We called onr family physician, and he
told my husband that I had consumption.
All "f our neighbors thought so too. I had
pains through my chest and spit up blood.
I commenced with your ' Golden Medical
Discovery1 and had only taken it two or
three days when I felt like a different person. I took four bottles of the medicine
and it cured my COtlgll, I have not been
bothered since, until a short time ago I
took cold and commenced to cough again;

Indigestion���everything I ate hurt me and
caused me to have palpitation of the heart.
My lungs were weak, was troubled with
asthma a great deal, and was so despondent
I did not take any interest in anything. I
tried several doctors, and every kind of
medicine I could hear of, but nothing
seemed to do me any good only for a little
while at a time. About one year ago I was
almost a skeleton and had almost given up
ever being well again. A friend advised
me to write to Dr. Pierce about my case,
and 1 did so, and followed the advice he
gave me. I began at once to use the medicines that lie prescribed���' Golden Medical

Swansea, Dec. 29.���Moyle Lake
country is all bustle. Swansea and
Moyle City are both experiencing a
boom. Tho reports of heavy blasting
awaken the slumbering solitude.
Moyie valley is no more u wilderness;
liencefor'h it will lie within the pale of
civilization. Towns will grow and
flourish, mines will develop from prospects, and the iron hurst! a year hence
will startle the gentle deer as it rumbles through tunnel, over trestle, along
tho rock bound shore ol the lake and
speeds away to its destination, the
wide shore of Kootenay Lake.
Already the-several contractors have
made good progess. Co wen & Co.
have broken ground at the tunnel, Mr.
O'Neill, tho superintendent, is busy
getting everything in working order;
K. N. Brndshaw arrived yesterday to
act as foreman in tunnel; Messrs, Mc-
Beatb and Peters are building camp on
their rive miles of rock work; Murphy
& Co, are grading on their five piles;
J. S, McLean, F. McLennan and J.
O'Letuy are ult making ready on their
respective contracts. Keith's outfit of
20 teams and 00 men passed south to
Kootenay Lake yesterday.
M. O. Bunyan is establishing
stage route between Coat River and
Moyie City, Swansea, St. Eugene Mission, Steele and Wardner in connection
with boats from Nelson. Express,
baggage and freight will be carried
and tho stage trip will be made to
Ste^lo in 2�� days and to Wardner in 3
days. This means from Vancouver to
Steele in JJJ davs, either by C. P. K. or
G. N. llys. Freight will bo carried
over this route from boat landing on
Kootenay Lake to Steele in 4 days at
2c per lb, and will do away with the
freighting from Kalispcl, Montana.
A new fctrike has been triads on the
Lake Shore claim near Moyle City. A
vein of iU feet of solid ore assaying Go
ozs. in silver and 70*/, in lead has been
laid bare. This claim rivals the St.
Xinas was spent very pleasantly.
A ball at Moyie City on the night of
tbe 2f)th was tho affair of tho season,
and was ft success.

that it was brought under my notice
about a year ago, and I specially interested myself in a number of cases
that were treated by it. Jn some of them
the results were remarkable, several
parties who were confirmed inebriates
becoming entirely changed and remaining till the present time sober and useful citizens. Several other parties
treated at the same time I have lost
sight of, but do not ���.ersonallr know
of a case out of a half a dozen in which
the treatment was not successful.
With best wishes I remain.

Lbona, Flat Head Co., Montana.,
December 19th, 1897.
Editor Goldish Era.
Dear Sir, I write at this time for
a little information iu regard to the
route from your town by way of Canoe
River to Teslin Lake I road in your
paper this fall, while I was in Fort
Steele, the advantages of the Canoe
River route. Now, if that is a practicable route toTt-aliu Lake,I wish to lay
the mutter before the Board of Trade
at Kalispel and direct the travel of
Montana and elsewhere by way of
Kalispel and Golden, B. C. If your
rcuto from Golden by way of Canoe
River is practicable I think wo people
can do something down here to get the
travel to your town. Spokane is turning heaven and earth over to get the
travol from that city to Ashcroft.
Now. we have a wagon road from
Kalispel. to your town as good as there
is in any country, while Spokane has
nothing but a trail to Ashcroft. You
are uo doubt familiar with the distance. Now, what 1 want to know is
this, so as I can state facts and have
them published and circulated through
the country:
1st. If you have a map of that route
will you please send it to me.
2nd. What would be the distance
from Golden to Quesnelle. or would
that be the initial point?
From Qucsnello Spokane will do all
the advertising I intend to go myself
to Teslin Luke in the spring and will
try and take others with me, and to
my mind I think we have the best
overland route from the States there is
��� the Kalispel. Fort Steele and Golden
route. I Alii satisliud that 1 can wake
up those people of Kalispel, who are
entirely ignorant of the advantages
they have got in regard to this route.
I live 50 miles from K.aispel on the
For" Steele road, and have some mining property here. I will go lo Kalispel as soon as I hear from you. By
all means let us have iho Kalispcl-
Colden and Canoe River route to Teslin Lake and Klondike. Hoping to
hear from y >u soon I am,
Respectfully yours,
Edmojui Haokett.

The Revelstoke Herald says: The
wrestling match between W. Criitt, of

crowd. Before the chief event a wrestle
took place between Bert Lane, of
ReveU'Oke. and Shaw, of Iilecillewaot,
iu which the former came off victorious.
T> e wrestle of the evening was well
contested and an exciting match. The

both white men and Chinamen engaged

one dollar and a half per day; so here
is an example ritfht near home where
the white man is forced to accept the
Chinaman's waufl or not work. Truly
a nice state of affairs in a white man's

the filling is done by Chinamen, thus

began to doctor for it, but to no effect.
The trouble went from bad to worse,

became utterly belpess, and could do
uo more for invself than a young

my side, and my wife was obliged to
cut my food and feeu me when I felt
like eating, which was not often
considering the torture I wns undergoing. My hands were swollen out of
shape, and for weeks were tightly
bandaged, My legs and feet were also
swollen, and I could not lift my foot
two inches from the floor. I could n"t
change my clothes and my wife had to
dress and wash me. I grew so thin

anything else. The pain I suffered
was almost past endurance and I got
no rest eiilur day or night. I doctored
with many doctors, but they did me
no good, and some of them told me it
was net possible for me to get bettor.

No name on earth, perhaps, is so
well known, more peculiarly constructed or more widely imitated
than the word DODD. It possesses a peciliarii/ that makes it
stand out prominently and
fastens it in the memory. It contains four letters, but only two letters
of the alphabet. Everyone knows that
the first kidney remedy ever patented
or sold was named DODD'S. Their
discovery startled the medical profession the world over.aud revolutionized
the treatment of kidney diseases.
No imitator has ever succeeded in
constructing a name possessing the I
peculiarity of DODD. though they
nearly all adopt names ns similar as
possible in tho sound and construction
of this. Their foolishness prevents
them realizing that attemps to imitate
increase the fame of Dod.Cs Kidney
Why is the name "Dodd's Kidney
Pills" imitated? As well ask why are
diamonds and gold imitated. Because
diamonds are the most precious gems,
gold the most precious metal. Dodd's
Kidney Pills are imitated because they
are the most valuable medicine the
world has ever known.
No medicine was ever named kidney
pills till years of medical research
gave Dodd's Kidney Pills to tbe world.
No medicine ever cured Bright'* disease except Dodd's Kidney Pills. No
other medicine has cured as many
cases of Rheumatism, Diabetes. Heart
Disease, Lumbago, Dropsy, Fonialo
weakness, and other kidney divinises
as Dodd's Kidney Pills have. It is
universally known that they have
never failed to cure ibese diseases,
hence they are so widely and sham-
lessly imitated. 241to
