I am glad to bo able to announce,
that Mr. Low has commenced a trail
from the Columbia river near the saw
mill to a point on Canyon Creek by
which it will be easy to convey provisions by horse up to the head. Heretofore the prospectors who were willing
to take a pack of 75 or 100 lbs. ou

est portions of the Selkirk range were
the only men who have ever seen the.

There is, if the information of men
who have been in there goes for anything, up the waters of Canyon creek
one of the best countries for mineral
leads in the province of British Columbia. The creek itself contains a largo
amount of gold and this gold without
doubt came from some of these leads
of quartz. But the country has uet
been travelled at all. Before a man
could get in tliere fairly his provisions
necessitated his coming back. By this,
trail he will be able to take a larger-
supply in and consequently be able to
remain and bunt and bring back some
of his find lo the assay office. Of
course the amount of money to be
spent on the trail is, I believe, very
small, and quite inadequate to fulfil
the requirements, but more may be
forthcoming in the future. Then
again there is another thing which
may be brought about by the coinplo.

hi Ufa hi hMui}, Campafiy,
OUR   friend, Mr.   Mara, did condescend to give the electors of Golden on
Saturday lust an opportunity of hearing bim speak.     There are, I believe,
very   few   who   have ever hoard him
speak   before, c-erybody,   at   leas*   a
great many were asking.   'How does
Mr. .Mara speak, cau  he speak at all?''
Now this is uot a little strange that as
long as Mr. Mara has   represented us,
we should   not  have hud bim address
us before.     Mr.   Mara explains it by
saying   that   he has no pretentions of
being an orator.    That's  true enough,
though he, if   he were a diligent pupil
even, might   have  improved through
all the years he has spent at Ottawa,
but why does he come now?     Not because he   has   improved bis powers of
oratory, for it is at the present that he
has ''no pretension, etc."   No! Things
are slightly altered.      Mr. Mara knew
that ha had his sheep  securely in the
fold as long as there was no opposition
for  the  membership, so he neglected
you.     Now   he   finds you scattered,
very much  scattered from hiin too, he
will also, I think, find some difficulty
to corral East Kootenay  again.     Mr.
Mara by his perfect indifference to tbe
wants   of   tho majority has estranged
himself   from them, and  nothing will
now bridge the  gap.    I do not know
what he could have  been  thinking of
when by way of  introducing a corol
lary to one of   his   statements he said
"then all   the electors tbat sent those
men. there must be corrupt "    He wss
speaking of  the members of a Conservative  government    when    he  said
"those men."   It was quite a "break"
to   make  at a public meeting.     Perhaps   he   was-like   Sir     Mackenzie
Bowell was a little while buck - think'
ing of  the   "traitors" at the time be
was   pleased  "o   make the statement.
All in all it   weut very well.     Everyone was I believe, except   himself perhaps, and  this   because heretofore he
has  not  been  accustomed to have a
dissenting voice.
He has, they say, no intention of
visiting Fort Steele, and the few supporters he had there think this beyond
the limits of endurance. "He could
come to Windermere but he could not
find time to visit us." This plan of
leaving Fort Steele out in the cold ol
his sunny presence is certainly nol a
politic one of his, Has lie ever lieen
to Steele?
Poor Donald too feels that lie has
given them the cold shoulder. lie
wat asked at the depot there ou
Suuday if he intended holding a meeting, when he stated that lie was afraid
he should uot have time, so iu consequence of this many there are afraid
also that they will uot have time to
return him to parliament, and again
he seemed to kuow uo one there except
a few of the B. B.'s. 80 good-bye Mr.
Mara, you have our sympathy and
that is all.
A prominent resident in Cariboo
writes to the Inland Sentinel, Kamloops : "The disgraceful disfranchisement of voters in Cariboo by abolishing polling slntions in Chilcotin,
Quesnelle  Forks, Horsefly  and Soda
Creek, opposition strongholds, has
cost tbe Liberals at least 120 votes,
while Mara will lose probably 3 votes.
You can however, in spiie of these
tactics, count on a considerable majority for Bostock in Cariboo."
We all   hoard on Saturday lust how
this   wholesale robbery  of   votes was
done.     Mr.   Mara  explained it very
nicely, but his very deportment while
doing   so   was   calculated   to call for
serious doubt, whether   he was an accessory to this said robbery.    Look at
tbe  face  ol   the  thing, why should
theso   places   which   lire particularly
Bostock camps   be disfranchised more
than   any  other  place.    Thnre is no
other   inference   possiblo  than that it
was   because   they are opposed to the
government.     Who  knew that these
places   were  opposed  to tbe Government?     Who   better  than .Mr. Mara?
We cannot   blame bim, I suppose, Ior
looking after bis own interests.     But
wa  sympathise   with him if  lit Is so
short   sighted   as to think that   such
tactics will advantage him any in tho
future.     By this it is shown that any
place may be disfranchised so to speak.
By   tactics  as these Mr. Mara thinks
he can see land in the distance, but its
merely a fog I can  assure you sir, and
then again Shakespeare says :      " 'Tis
double death to drown in ken of shore"
The   aforesaid- contemporary says:
���'By the   delinquency of   Mr. Main in
failing   to  take   timely steps to have
tbe voters' lists revised, and tlie necessary   facilities   for   voting   supplied,
fully hull   it is estimated, of properly
qualified residents   of Yule-Kooteiiuy
and   Cariboo have been robbed of   the
privilege of   voting.     This same Mr.
Mara is again soliciting the suffrages
of the people."
Mara'. Meeting Closes with Loud and
Prolonged Cheering far the Queen,
Laurier und Bostock.
For the first time since he has
represented Yale-Cariboo, Mr. J. A.
Mara faced the electors here Saturday
night, and it is safe to say that the
result was not gratifying to him. If
there is any pluce in the constituency
which has a greivauce against Mr.
Mara it is East Kootenay. He has
certainly neglected them heretofore,
and this fact was abundantly exemplified at the conclusion of the meeting
when three cheers were giveu for The
Queen, Laurier and Bostock. Mr.Mara
was not in it, so to speak, from the
lirst. Mr. McCutcheon followed on
behalf of Mr. Bostock, and his knowledge of ' Mr. Mara's delinquencies as
representative of the district enabled
hiin to make it rather warm for that

In speaking of tlie bridge disaster at
Victoria tbe Province says: ���
The bridge wus built iu 1885 by a
San Francisco company at a cost of
���m.COO for the Provincial Government, aud was, we ate assured by experts, a good enough bridge at the
time for the purpose for which it was
intended, i.e., the ordinary vehicular
uud passenger traffic of a city of the
then Victoria's size with, we may
assnme, tlie usual margin of safety,
say five tin~.es tbe strength needed for
actual requirements. So far so good,
but what happened? When the city
limits were extended tho bridge was
taken over by the Municipality. The
Municipality in turn, cither made or
confirmed arrangements previously
arrived at with the Tramway Company for the passage of cars in total
unconcern as to whether the bridge
was or was uot strong enough to
stand tho additional traffic. The
Tramway Company seems to have
quite coutent to assume what it ought
to have proved; it laid down tlie track
not in the centre, but upon one side of
the bridge, thereby adding enormously
to the undue strain. It persistently
loaded its curs with us much human
freight as tbey could be made to carry,
quite regardless of the state of lhe
road bod over which they hud to travel.' Warning was given three years
ago of what might be expected when
the bridge partially collapsed. Bnt
the warning fell on .loaf ears. Xo
precautious were apparently takeu by
anybody; nothing was done. On the
day of tht accident no measures of any
kind were adopted to regulate or mini
mise the traffic. Accounts vary as to
the number of cars, which, at the
moment of the accident were on the
bridge at the same time. Some say
there was as many as four; some say
three; some only two. The truth will
doubtless be brought out during the
tho enquiry, but be this as it may, it
is abundantly evident tbat no steps
were taken by anybody to provide for
the safety of the public on the occa
sion of all others when they should
have been taken, and the fact is a
scandal and disgrace. Individuals
have paid with their lives for corporate neglect, and it is certainly to be
hoped iu tho interest of public safety
for the future that the day of reckoning may be a rude one.
A Remarkable Cure of Uhenm_tl.ni.
Westminster, Cal., March 31, 1894.
���Some time ago, on awakening one
morning, I found that I had rheumatism iu my knee so badly that, as I
remarked to my wifo, it would be impossible for me to attend to business
that day. Remembering that I had
some of Chamberlain's Pain Balm in
my store I tent for a bottle, and rubbed the afflicted parti thoroughly with
it, according to directions, and within
an hour I was completely relieved.
One application bad done the business.
It is the best liniment on the market,

Mr. E. King Dodds.
There are not a few people who are
asking who Mr. Dodds is. It may be
summed up this way in all respect of
course: Mr. Dodds is a gentleman
who has been imported from Ontario
for this campaign, and the burden of
the speech-making from the government point of view devolved upou hiin.
His ignorance of B.C.'s requirements
and conditions prevailing in this province compelled him to fall baok on
one of his ancient campaign harangues
and he regaled the audience with a
speech which has done duty on many
a stump In the agricultural districts
of Ontario. Mr. Dodds omes to B.C.
as au exponent of the blessings of protection and to tell the people here of
the wonderful develo ^leut In the east.
He must havo a poo- idea of tbe intelligence of the peo'le here if he imagines that they can bo influenced by
such moonshine as he talked at Revelstoke. For when he talks of there
being a scarcity of skilled mechanics
in such places as Toronto we all know
that be is stating what is not the fact
As Mr. E. King Dodds will address
meetings ir Victoria, Vancouver and
New Westminster it might be well for
the people here to learn something of
this wonder of eloquence. He is a
sporty gentleman, who obtained considerable notoriety in the east, when
as the advocate of the brewing and
distilling interest he appeared upon
every anti-temperance stump in Ontario. He is an old campaigner, and
no one has ever been deceived into believing that he was doing it entirely
for his health's sake. This is the
kind of a man who has been sent or
brought to bolster up the government's
already weak case in this province. It
is safe to predict that he will influence
very few votes in British Columbia.���

The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to the merits of a new
improved apparatus, for testing and smelting various kinds ot ores and miner*
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc.
Manufactured by a chemist aud metallurgist who thoroughly understand!
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, the miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, coupelliug, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, roasting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slug aud metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and kuock-dowu bottom.
It is of the cupola type, with extension when smelting ores; capacity 1000
to 5000 pounds per heat; also smaller size, capacity from 1WI to -JOU pound*
per heat, according to the character of i res,
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
This furnace is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported over a mountainous country by a pack burro,
that is complete and ready to be set up at any dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tout
of ore a day.
On lowftradooro. picked nt the damp, this little furnace will pay for it*.

This   weak  I rings anoiher consignment of   topper   ore.from this district
bound for Trail, West lioutenny.   Mr.
McNeish    who.baa  lieen working! be
property for  several month's bus now
made an attempt to bring soine iettun��
back, tho-igh the disadvantage, under
which he has   to labor are indee 1 dis-
ooiiragilig.     Iu   the   first   place  the
mine   is   situated  some little distance
from   navigable   waters and has to be
reached by an  indifferently good trail.
Then   the   .'istanee   from a reduction
works is no small matter fur consideration, for   the ore.has ot   ue0ess.ily'to
be handled several   times after leaving
tlie mine before it  cun lie placed at the
smelter.     The   mine   from   Which it
comes   is   the   well   known   Hidden
Treasure;a Coppermine situated ou the
Spilleinacheoii   River   ubout IIO   miles
from Golden on the C.P.R.     Early iu
the fall Mr. D. D. Munn of  Montreal
bonded   the   property but much to bis
loss allowed it to run out.     The bond
was   taken   on very leusonable teims
br   the  would-be  purchaser, but   he
was   nnt   in   luck   so   to speak, and
missed his venture.   The property has
been   proved   since to be a very valuable  one, and  some of tho ore taken
out of. an exceedingly rich character.
For instance  the vitreous  copper ore
found there   will analyse 64 per cent,
metallic copper, ulso the carbonates go
as much as 51  per cent, copper, showing that the ore is of  an exceptionable
character.     The   amount   of   ore   of
course is at present   undetermined lut
sufficient  bus  been shown io warrant
a larire body.   However only time and
work   can   prove  this but if   such a
property   wero   only   situated iu any
part of the otlier   Kootenay tlie people
would be going wild over it, but being
here it is  passed  unnoticed by tho investors in   mining property, or rather
the investors   ot   laud  with which to
form a stock Co.
Quite an excitement has occurred at
Donald this week abaut tlie lich
strike of placer diggings on the Blue-
water near that town. Casslar went
out some two weeks ngo to prospect
for gold on tlieBlucwater und returned
to town last Sunday, with very good
evidence that gold and thut iu apparently paying quantities existed in the
Blue Water. He had with him some
gold he extracted. It is not of the
same character that is generally found
in the streams of East Kootenay but
is a finer gold nnd is disseminated
very evenly through the gravel. He
states from 5 to 10 cents may be obtained from each'pan of gravel. The
accompanying material such as
"black rand," etc., are very prmising
���ml show well. Six claims have been
staked In the last week. We hope
they have found it rich.

E. King Dodds arrived iu town on
Tuesday lust nnd in the evening met'a
large aidiencc of ladies and gentlemen
iti tlie Oddfellows Hall, where he rehashed the little piece he gnvent differ-
���nt parts of tlie const. Iu opening
Mr. Dodds gave us a loig dissertation
on tbe benefits of protecti-in. The
hireling from Ontario, ivho evidently
imagines that Toronto is the bub of
tho universe, then, touched lightly on
the famous R'media) Bill. In defence
of this measure he utterly failed to
prov* that people who do not support
the. reckless, corrupt and unscrupulous
Sir Cliai'les Tipper and his Coercion
Bill are not fouls and fanatics. In
winding np Mr. Dodds nave us per
vration lhat savored somewhat of the
race track.
Mr. Marchant of Victoria followed
our horsey friend and gave hiin seme
hitter pills to swallow. He contrasted
Mr. Hewitt Bostock and Mr. Mara
and it must be acknowledged that the
cjrnpiiisoii was unfavorable to our
late representative. He then went
into details regarding the benefits the
N.P. hns coufirred upon the Dominion
of Cann'ln. Mr. Marchanc who certainly knows more about British Columbia than Mr. Dodds, drew a very
harrowing picture'of the evils t|iat the
blighting curse protection hns showered upon this fair province of ours. In
closing Mr. Marchant appealed to the
people to vote right, and to teturii Mr.
Hewitt Bostock as their representative
wbo will givo an honest support to the
statesman who is easily the grea'est
Canadian of any race and of whom his
own people can pot be prouder than are
the English Canadians. On taking
his sent the eloquent Victorian was
applauded to the echo and he must
have felt that he had done his duty
nobly and well.
As the meeting was supposed to be
a Mara one Mr. Dodds, who had been
taking voluminous notes claimed bis
right to have Ibe last word, and in
his last word made what might be
vulgarly called a few bad breaks.
