Toronto Jau. 15. The Toronto
News publishes the following Interview
with Gio. Goolorham on the freight
simiuliir-ps ft affects son theru British
Columbia:
'���If ihe Canadian Paoiflo does not j
reduce its fralghl rites on ore all mines
iu British Columbia which are Subject
to toils of 'hat corporation, will have
lo shut down eventually," j
"And that means tho War Eagle
will__discontinue operations sooiif-r or
later?" |
"Assuredly, the W.*r Eaple, as well'
as others."
Snoh were the statements  made by |
Goo. Ooo'ierlism, president of ihu War
Eagle Mining company,   io a News re- !
portir this morning,  and  li nctjoutu-a
for the rapid full in lho choice of that!
stock  ou oxrhaii-.-e.-i during  the past
few days. Value at Hto-.'U*. has dud.n-1
wit-ho t apparent  reason, an.l outside
operators when   questioned professed |
to ho iizuorant of any  reason for  thu
fall.
This morning, however* there was a
rumor on the street to the effect that
the Gooderhsm*Bfttck'&l'ccK syndicate
were at war with ibe C.P.R. and had
threatened unless ibat corporation j
showed more liberality iu its freight
char-.et-.ou ore, they would withdraw
all 'tTi'ofr Internst-s from British Col-
umbia. I
The following is an extract from an .
B,Yticle In thi* Toronto Globe headed
"EXCESSIVE FREIGHT RATES":- j
������While lo.ial charges uro based on tiie;
endurance noini of every line of industry, modified only by the prospect of
fftfg-ht-way'on corapeiion, every euler-
prise is kept on the ragged ed^o of
failure. The farmer, too is held clo3u
to the level of a bare existence, and tlio
geueVal outlook is most discouraging,
Two causes bine tended to stifle cjin
plaint, the fear of winning offiiumi'
uration and the absolute power of the
railway, Me'rchants, ranchers and
miners know thut the company holds
the power of commercial life or death
over them, so they feel constrained to
iftafce tbe best bargain they can und
keep silent about their grievances. As
local rates are based on tbe cost of
hauling by team, tbe rate across the
continent is adjusted uccording to ihe
tflst 'Of ViVsS��l transportation a'rouim
C-iue Horn. The rates tu inter modi ute
points arc not less hut greater tban are

being tha same as ilie rate to the const,
plus tho rate buck io the point of destination. The rate to Rovelstoko is
equal to the combined charges to Vancouver and buck to that city. A continuation of this state of affairs!'*
simply impossible. Some remedy must
be found, audit will be well for the

Hit Dreamiway place la down by the brook.
In a nol retreat where tall trues grow;
The mosa is salt lu the shadowy nook,
And there's music made by the water's flow,
And you lie at ease and upward look
And dream the happiest dreams you know.
A great rock shelters the Dreamaway place,
Affording ever the coolest shade;
The preen leaves waver like filmy laet���
A fairy veil o'w the whole spot laid���
'And lilies bow with a winning grace
On the edge ot the brook in the -quiet glade.
Oh, the Dreamaway place la a remedy aurt
For worry and heartache und petty care,
And the wild bird's song ran always cure,
And a tonic lurks in the ������-.-iilcil air!
The spirit groweth strong mid pure
With an hour's repose In Dreamland i*t*o.

We luid been talking about tbe generally humdrum lives led by nine men
out of teu. ami tbo sud eyed mau wbo
hid hitherto kept silent stiid ns he settled hack Into his chair nml put bis
feet on tbo rnil of the hotel piazza:
"Frum my birth to the present time
1 huve had but oue thing happen to me
tbnt was In the smallest degree uuu-
mull, aud that related to my marriage,
whicli was a little out of the ordinary."
Ho spake with a sleepy drawl that
piqued curiosity, aud I asked him to
tell us whnt hnppened If It wouldn't Interfere with his nap.
He smiled and yawned and snld:
"I was burn aud brought up in Laramie, Wy., nud so was Arabella. Arabella Is my wife. I bad known her all
her life aud bad always loved her, and
rim had done the same by me, and the
course of our nffectlous ran as smooth
as molten mctn'. In 1880 I decided to
marry her, and tbe day was set for
April 2*~t, nud we invited all our friends
uud looked forward to a huppy but
commonplace wedding.
'Must ono week before tbe ceremony
I was called up to North Dakota on a
business mntter which I did not think
would detnlu me more than threo or
four days.
"Arabella did n tittle weeping on my
shoulder, womanlike, nml said, 'What
If you never como hack?' Rut I said:
'Nuw, you know perfectly well that I
always have boon as regular us clockwork. It's ouly a few hundred miles
a wny. nnd I'll be buck aud we'll be
married exactly at 4 o'clock on April
25. uud It will bo the least exciting and
yet happiest wedding that ever took
place.'
"1 went up to North Dakota, ami the
Inst ten miles of my journey I hud to
mnke on foot. While I was walking
along it began to snow, and inside of
nu hour n blizzard was raging, and I
bad to put In for shelter at the bouse of
a lane stranger unnied Smlthson, who
kindly gave tue supper nnd told me
thut It would be suicidal for me to go
any farther; that a Dakota blizzard,
the last one of the scusoii. but perhaps
the worst, was upon lis.
'"Wben cau 1 return?' snld I. He
told uio tbnt If tbe blizzard was n real
energetic ono It would be two weeks
before 1 saw home and mamma. You
may imagine my feelings. Hundreds of
miles from Arabella with less thnn a
week luterveiiiug before our marrlnge,
ami uo wny of gettlug word to her! Of
course sbe would think me faithless.
"1 told the stranger my troubles, nnd
be sympathized with me. but said thai
Uo human being could live out lu tbnt
Rtnruit uud when I looked out of the
window I believed bim, It was terrific.
1 Imd been lu tbe New York blizzard of
1SS8, and it was a sultry summer's day
to this one.
"There was nothing to do but to grin
end bear it. Maybe It would stop sooner 'linn my friend thought. He might
be an alarmist, but it grew worse, aud
by oust morning it seemed to bo only
Just beginning to get In its flue work.
The mercury weut su low that I'd hesitate to sny Just wbat the thermometer
recorded for fear of beiug considered
au exaggerator. The snow fell nt the
rate of a foot nn hour ou tho level. The
lnni.se was soou covered up, and we
would have smothered In time If my
friend bad not happened to hare n tin
ventilator tbat ran 50 feet up in tbe air
for Just such occosious.
"Not to make n long story, It was Ave
days before tbe snow stopped, nnd tben
we were suowed lu to tho depth of 50
feet Aud we were dowu to our last
loaf of bread. But the thing tbat worried mc most was the fact that It waa
my wedding day. I sat lu tho pitch
darkness, for our otl had given out,
wondering what Arabella would do
when I didn't turn up. Suddenly we
heard a voice coming down the ventilator.  Smithson groped his way to It
" 'Who's there'/' said be.
"it's tbe parson. Have you food
enough?'
" 'No, Indeed,' said Smlllison.   'We're
dowu to our last lonf. How are yoti
able to be about, parson?
'"Why, this Is the queerest storm
that ever happened. All Dakota north
of us Is covered, but yours Is tbe last
house in tbe track of tbe storm. South
of bere tbe ground is perfectly bare, so
I hitched up and brought some provisions along and drove to the edge of
this mighty snowbank, and then I put
on my snowshoes ond climbed up. It's
lucky you bad su-jb a long ventilating
pipe. How are you goiug to get out?
Shall I drop aome food down the pipe?
"Smithson told bim that we had not
eaten anything for ten hours, aud wa
were beginning to get up an appetite,
and the next mluute a bundle of pork
and beans was dropped dowu to us.
"if you can tunnel south of your
houso for 20 feet, you'll come out ou
clear country. I'll go home and get
my shovel and dig toward you, and you
oigbt to get out soon.'
Tunltbson thanked the dominie, aad
we tackled the baked beans, and they
tasted like Neapolitan Ice cream. Then
we felt like working. But I was feeling pretty serious, because I kuew that
Arabella was beginning to worry. However, I fell to with a good will, nnd after two hours of hard work we met In
the snow tunnel, the minister and me,
and a minute afterward we walked
out to open air and saw the strangest
sight that could be imagined.
"North as far as the eye could reach
the country lay covered 60 feet deep
with an arctic snowfall. South of us
the grass was Just beginning to show
green, and skunk cabbages were already pushing up through tho earth.
And In front of us stood the parson's
lonely house, with a box of a church
next door to tt and not another building In sight.
"We grasped the parson's band and
told him be was a white man If ever
there was one, and then I asked him
what chances tbere were of* my being
able to get back to Laramie.
"He told me that the road to tbe station was completely blocked, and It
would be two days before I could get
through. Two days! 1 Instinctively
pulled out my watch. It was 3:50. iu
ten minutes, parson,' said 1, 'my wedding will be due In Laramie, and Arabella is even now waiting for mc'
"He was expressing bis sympathy
when we heard a roaring noise, and
Smithson said: 'Run for your lives! A
cyclone!'
"Tbe tbree of us Instinctively dived
Iuto tlie snow. Then we heard a muffled roar, and tbe earth shook, and It
was all over, dust to make sure, we
lay lu the suow for a few minutes, aud
theu we crept out. Such n scone ns
met our gazel The church and tbe parson's bouse were the ouly movable
things tbat hadn't moved. Trees were
leveled ou all sides, and the plains In
front of us were full of debris from various states.
"Just lu front of me were half a hundred crates of eggs, whipped to nn omelet by tbe wind; a bunch of bananas,
a white horse aud a library of books
labeled 'Cheyenne Free Library.' And."
stuck lu tbe snowbank wuh n woman
In a gray traveling dress. The parson
pulled her out, wondering If It wus a
neighbor, but I, catching sight of her
face, recognized her as Arabella! Arabella In her wedding dress, my friends!
"Of course tbe uext day's papers ull
over the country had full accounts of
the awful cyclone that hnd struck Laramie and had ruu uortheast Into thu
Dakotas, but uot a word about Arabella except the fact that sbe was missing
and her mother wos frautlc.
"Now, you may say that It was her
woman's love that guided her on the
back of the storm to where 1 was, but
even If so lt was a remarkable occurrence.
"In a minute sbe opened her eyes,
and then she sat up, aud tben she saw
me. She was always quick to take lu

several years, my appetite was poor,
and 1 was easily tired, but it was
the fretpient sharp pains and violent
palpitation of my heart which caused
me the greatest alarm. 1 tried many
medicines, und was treated by several doctors, but in vain. Finally 1
became so poorly that 1 wus not
ablo to do any household work, and
was frequently confined to my bed.
At the suggestion of one of my
friends I decided lo try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. After taking a few boxes
I began to gain new strength and
vigor. The pains in my heart were
less frequent and less severe, und in
every way my health was improving. I continued using the pills until
1 had taken eight boxes, when 1 had
completely recovered my health. I
have gained in flush; my appetite is
good, and I uiu aide lo do nil my
iiousfho'd work without feeling the
awful fatigue I was before subject
to. I am very thankful to Dr, Williams' Pink Pills, for they have truly
released me from much suffering, and
I hope that others may be induced to
try Ihis wonderful medicine."

THE NEW FURNITURE COMPANY.
Tbo London correspondent of Tbo
Now York Sun says "that the most
promising market is offered in tho
United Kingdom for American furniture manufacturers," and also adds
that "by sending good furniture enterprising manufacturers will find a
trade awaiting thein which will pay
handsome profits." The Canada Furniture Manufacturers, Limited, which
came into existence laBt week, with
a capital of 93,000,000, is well
equipped to do a very large export
trade. It has absorbed the Furniture Manufacturing Exporting Co,
of Berlin and Liverpool, and also the
Anderson Furniture Co.'s English organization. This will give the new
company ample facilities to competo
with the United States factories successfully. In connection with this
we might add that the Canada Furniture Manufacturers, Limited, offer
a portion of preference stock to   the
��� public.   It Is one of the best invest-
* ments offered.

linml nnd tlu- 1*'inure.
The difference lietween the masculine
disposition before and after marriqge was
forcibly Illustrated yesterday in one of
our largo shops, where two of tho lords of
crentlou waited for dilatory women wilh
whom they hnd appointments.
Both had chosen a point of vantage at
lhe silk counter, where they could see every oue who entered, nnd from 11:55 to
12:10 ufter Mr. Married Mun���every onlooker know he was nmrried by his im-
patience���looked at his wntch on an aver-
nge of twice a minute and gnawed Ids
mustache continuously nml so savagely
that the saleswomen iu bis Immediate vicinity edged awuy and watched events
curiously.
At ton minutes after the noon hour the
situation wus relieved by the nppcaraoce
on the scene of u pretty little womnn, a
Hushed and hurried little woman, who
eyed her liege lord askance as she approached.
"I'm sorry I'm a few minutes late,
���lack," she snid, "Imt that dreadful tailor
wouldn't lot tno go until he'd basted tho
lust seam to his satisfaction,"
"I'm sorry also," responded her companion coldly, "for your tardiness will
necessitate my going without my luncheon. This is the lust appointment I'll
ever mnke with you." Ami away they
went together, milady looking injured
and milord majestically offended, though,
como to think of It, W, minutes isn't such
a grent spacv of timo nfter nil.
The other man was not married, That
was evident from his patience and the
beaming glance with which he received
the winsome bit of femininity for which
he wnlted, though Bho wns n full half
hour behind time. Perhaps when the
words have been snid over his bend tbnt
give him nn Inalienable right to find fault
he will not be so amiable, but ho wns
now.
"Am I late?" asked the young woman,
with u Hue disregard for the evidence of
the clock right in front of her eyes.
"Oli, a trltle," replied her cnvnlior disingenuously; "but it doesn't make u particle of difference, I've been very much
amused nt the crowd."
Of course he hadn't been nt nil. He'd
been striding up nud down, looking uml
feeling ns out of place as a bull in n
china shop, but ho wouldn't hnvo said so
for worlds.
All of which Illustrates the fact that
marriage is n sort of furnace in which is
transmuted bearish uess uud thnt appalling plainness of speech that lends to tho
courts sometimes, Hnt why this should

GOLDEN is the key to the Upper Columbia Valley
the head of navigation on the Columbia Kiver, and the
centre of an extensive stock-raising and ranching country, extending from the headwaters of the Columbia River
in the south to Tete Jaune Cache in the north.
The important mineral discoveries recently made in
the Oolden and Windermore districts, together with the
fact that trai.s|.ortation is now assured at nn early dare
by a railway running the length ot the Columbia and
kootonay Valleys, from Golden to Cranbrook, ensure grent
activity'in the mining camps of North East Kootenay.
Nojfssiiations are also proceeding, which will ensure tlie
operation of the Golden Smelter within the next few
months.
THE GOLDEN TOWNSITE now offered forms
the only land available for the extension of the building
area.
Present prices are favorable to investors, who will
find it to their interest to purchase before a further rise
takes place.
Plans may be s-ften and prices and terras obtained on
application to **
No sate of lots is valid until purchaser receives agreement for sale signed by Townsite Trust-sea.
