A work that is of urgent importance
in view of the promised activity in
mining along the Kicking Horse, is
the opening of the old trail to connect
Golden with Field. This would give
access for packhorsrs to thn many
streams tributary to the . Kicking
Horse. T. E. Wilson, of Banff, who
has paid particular attention to mineral prospects in tbo Rockies, assures us
that some of the prospects located
there are exceedingly good, und he has
bonded some of t hem through Mr. McCarter, of Revelstoke, to St. Paul parties, who propose to do extensive development work. He says that the
want of access for horses is at present
a great drawback to that portion of
the district, and he contends that 8300
would make an excellent pack trail
through the canyon. For the past
few years he has kept open at his own
expense the trail from Laggan to Field
but between Field and Golden the
route has been a closed door. There
can bo no doubt that In view of the
large amount of traffic that will come
from the prairie into the Tete Jaune
Cache goldfiolds this coming season
the opening of a trail through the
Kicking-horse would be a great public
boon, giving a short pack trail
through the Rocky Mountains. The
opening of this trail would also be of
immense advantage to Golden, as it
would concentrate traflic here and
aid in making this town what it
is destined to be-the great outfitting
point for the northern country. It is a
pity that this trail was over looked in
the Board of Tr ide deliberations the
other day, but Mr. Wells M P.P. will
no doubt see the importance of the
scheme proposed, and if it can be doss
for 1300 as suggested by Mr. Wilson
he will be quite justified in obtaining
a diversion of the sum required for ihis
cured in il days by tbe use of Dr. Agnew's
Ointment. However iiniia&iible this may
seem, a few applications will convinee. Many
are cured who have been disfigured for years.

Letter to C. A. Warren.
Mr, C. A. Warren has jnst received
a letter from P. White*, who left Golden last spring to explore the northern
country, going through by pack train
from Ashcroft. At the time of writing
(Mar, 30th), Mr. White had just arrived at Atlin. He speut tbe first part
of the wiuter at Teslin lake and left
there for Atlin middle of February.
Ha bad a very hard trip through, all
his borsw having died last fall, and he
had to save what he could of his outfit
on a hand sleigh. Theie were hundreds of people on the trail in the same
fix. Mr. White says tbe old miners at
Atlin have great faith in the camp,
but that tbe alien law bas put a damper ou the field for the pre.eut. Everything iu the shape of a creek is staked
for miles around, and on Pine creek
some of the claims have ns inanv as
nine stakes on them, and the claims
there have from three stakes upward
on each. These are recorded several
times. No wonder Mr. White remarks
that "everything is in a perfect

A great deal of discussion is going
on throughout the mining camps as is
the eight-hours dav for miners. The.
mine owners are opposed to tbe innovation and the men support it. With
some experience ot the eight-hour system we say emphatically that is tho
best system of labor, and is being adopted where-over the relations between
the laborer on the one hand and the
employer on the other are conducted in
a reasonable aud lair spirit. Any experienced mining engineer will throw
in his weight witb the men in this fight,
as he knows perfectly well that 8 hours
is long enough for any man to keep
underground and do good work. Besides the eight houis ahilt is clearly
the best method of running a mine.

A Thief and a Gun.
The Columbia River Lumber Co.'s
mill wss the scene of a bit of a sensation on Wednesday night. A nkin
named John Nutt had packed up'a
quantity of harness from the harness
r.-oni of the (.remises and was making
off with it about midnight. Toe
noise made hy the thief about the
premises at tliat hour of tbe night attracted the attention of Mr. Grady,
the Company's storo keeper, and ho
went out with his gun to see what was
up. Seeing the thief making off with
his swag he called on him io bold up.
The iliief rum the faster but u abut
from Gr.-ul>'s gun brought liiin to u
standstill, and ho was then taken iu
charge by Grady and A. McMillan,
who brought kirn up and delivered him
over to Coastahlo Lang. Nutt was

In a half column write-up of the
Lyceum Company, whicli is playing
Calgary this week, the Calgary Herald
says : " The Lyceum Company opened lust night at the Opein house what
promises to be a most successful engagement. The company itself was
almost completely unknown to Calgary
playgoers, but the members of the Calgary Cricket club, under whose auspices '.he performances are given, secured
a full house for the opening night. If
one may judge by tho unanimous expression of genuine pleasure on the
part of the audience, there will be no
lack of patronage during the week.
The dresses were very handsome and
the staging beautiful. We have not
room to give a fuller criticism than
this or ne should have a treat deal
moro to say in praise of the Lyceum
company, for it is by far the best
theatrical company that lias visited
Calgary for many years, and the
thanks of the titulars going public are
due to the Cricket club for their enterprise in bringing such u good thing io
the town."
The Lyceum Company appear in
Columbia Hall on Monday and Tuesday nights next. Flan of ball at
Field's Drug Store.
A murder of the most coldblooded
and unprovoked nature occurred in
broad day-light in this city on Saturday. Fbilip Walker, a young -married
man, was the victim, and Casimir, an
Indian, the assailant. Walker was
splitting fire-wood iu his yard, when
tho Indian came up behind him and
fired two riflo shots at*, him, in quick
succession. One bullet penetrated the
left shoulder, the other pierced tbe
livor and lungs. Tbe Indian at
once made oil to a canoe and crossed
therefrom to the Reserve. Walker
died a few minutes after. Walker was
a very quiet, inoffensive man. The
Indian could have no possible motive
for the crime, save thirst for a white
man's blood. The affair has naturally
created great excitement in Kamloops,
and tbere was no lack of officers to go'
after the murderer, who has uot been
caught by latest accounts.
The murderer was arrested yesterday

Proposal for Increased Representation,
A special to the Rossland Miner
says : A meeting of the British Columbia Liberal members of Parliament
mid Senator Templeman, was held to>
discuss the question of redistribution.
They recognise the necessity of getting
un additional member to represent!
Kootenay, Bostock's constituency being too large. This matter wes talks!
over at length but nothing definite*
was done. The difficulty is to get ths
island members to consent to drop ons
member for Victoria city, as an additional representative cannot be given
to the province before the census it
Senator McDonald will ask ths senate if tho government will giveincreas-
ed representation to British Columbia.
On this the Miner remarks: It
wonld appear from the tenor of ths
dispatch of onr special correspondent
nt Ottawa, thnt there is little hope of
obtaining, for 6ome time to come, an
additional member for this constituency, now represented in the House of
Commons by Mr, Hewitt Bostock.
Despite the fact that thoKootonays are
prosslugly in need of additional parliamentary representation nnd that thst
interests of the city of Victoria might
quite well be left to one member, there
is not enough publio spirit in ths
Island members to concede the claims
of the great mining district, and they
may lie expeeied to fight against any
measure for a fair redistribution. The>
time has long gono by when tha olty
ot Victoria should be looked upon a��
the central point of the Province- of
British Columbia.

Death   is   an
enemy that
-must be
knocked ont
in the first
round, or he
is pretty sure
to conquer in

A weak

impaired digestion and a disordered liver
mean that a man is fighting the first round
with death. Unless he manages to strike
the knock-out blow, it means that death
will come up in the second round in the
���juise of some serious malady. When a
man's stomach is weak and his digestion
is impaired, the life-giving elements of the
food he takes arc not assimilated into the
dood. The blood gets thin and weak, aud
he body slowlv starves. In the meantime
he disordered 'liver and the sluggish bow-
ds have forced into the blood nil manner

There is another universe whioh 10

no les.i wonderful and stupefying than
the iniiiiito Is stupendous. Scientists have
told ns of the atoms and molecules of
which they say material things are com-
posed, ho small that although instruments have been perfected to bring Into
view remote stars, nothing has as yet
been devised to mako visible these in-
jlnitcsimul bodies. Were a drop of water,
s:iv thoy, magnifietl to the size of the
earth, one of the molecules therein would
appear of the magnitude of an ordinary

ute, Everything else appear* gigantic
and enormous and man himself Is a titan.
His words are as thunder and his walking as tho quaking of the earth; his
thoughts are beyond conception and his
motives as the stirring of unknown
winds. He Is a being of dignity nnd consequence and what ho docs must affect

The Blood is the very essence of life.
As it courses through the system it carries
with it, if pure and rich, nutrition to every
cell in the body. If impure, it spreads
disease. If thin and watery, it fails to
nouiish, hence we have weakness, debility and decay.
It is Ihe wonderful power B.B.B. has
in purifying impure blood, making thin,
watery blood rich and red, that is at the
bottom of its marvellous success in curing
Those who are pale, thin, weak,
troubled with blotches, pimples or eruptions of any kind should take B.B.B.
It makes the pale check rosy, tho skin
clear and smooth, and infuses new energy
