Columbia Valley
To The Yukon
Deputations to the Minister of
the Interior
Re Will Rare Pall Bnqulrr Made
late the Feasibility of the i so*
posed Boat*
On No 1. arriving at Oolden on
Thursday morning with the Hon. Mr,
Sifton, Minister of the Interior, on
board, the train was joined by the
Hon. F. W. Aylmer. Messrs. H. 0.
Parson, J. 0. Oreene and Haggen as a
deputation from the recent publio
���nesting held at Oolden to urge the
claims of the Columbia Valley route
as the nearest and best Inland route
to the Yukon. The deputation, by
means of one ot Moberley's maps
supplied by the Hon. P. W. Aylmer,
were able to point out the route of the
proposed road, and Mr. Sifton also
had a map, whioh had been prepared
by the Department showing a route
proposed from Edmonton north and
through the Rooky Mountains on to
the Blaek river, whence it would
strike the Liard and then run Into the
Tukon Valley. The deputation pointed out that the route Irom Edmonton
through the Tellowhead pass to Tete
Jaune Cache, and the routes proposed
from Kamloops and Revelstoke. would
also touch the same point. The C. P.
R. line tn the Upper Columbia Valley
wat muoh nearer Tete Jaune Cache
than any other point that had been
suggested, Donald and Beaver being
tht most northerly stations on the
line. The information that wat avail*
able went to thow that the proposed
route was a practicable one, and that
such a road as that proposed could be
easily and cheaply constructed. The
valleys were wide and open with
plenty ot grass and game, and the
winters along the western valley of
the Rockies were noted for their comparative mildness. Thero was also
a large area of country that such a
road would open up that was known
to be rioh gold oountry. There wat
a reasonable prospect that the Provin
oial Government would as.ist iu opening up this road. The deputation
asked that the Dominion Government
should take this route into consideration and have it reported upou along
with the outer proposed routes, and if,
at thty believod.it was the best that it
should bt adopted,as it was 160 to 200
miles shorter than tha Edmonton route
tor traffic from the eaat and something
like 600 milee shorter for trsffio from
the west. The depute* ion referred the
Minister to the reports ot Dr. Daweou,
Santord Fleming and W. Moberlv,
Civil Engineers, who made careful
inquiry into thit ronte and recommended it at tbe best route by which
to open up the North West.
At Donsld Messrs. J. C. Pitts, T.
Forrest and C Balnea also metthe Minister as a deputation Irom the people
ot that town and urged the matter on
similar grounds to these of the Golden
deputation.
The Minister ssid that in a road from
Edmonton through the mountains the
Tellowhead Pass was the best route.
He had already a report from Mr.
Moberly on the subject. He would
have the route suggested by the deputation fully enquired Into and would
give It the fullest consideration.
The deputation respectively thanked
the Minister for his courtesy.

Tom Jones
Tom Jones, to whom Capt. Armstrong paid the generous and fitting
oompllment of giving him a lifelong
past by tht Upper Columbia Navigation Company's steamers, It one of the
pioneers of East Kootenay. He came
into the Upper Columbia valley In
1888, having been with the rash ol
Slaoor miners to Wid Horse Creek.
Ince bit arrival here he hae actively
followed mining and wae ths discov-
i of the Dslos olaim on Hortethief
Creek, whioh hae the promise today
of being one of the best locations of
Ettt Kootenay. While prospecting
the Hortethief live yean ago Mr. Jones
struck the rioh float In the bed of the
river and followed it up a slide ou the
mountain tide where he located the
claim that hat tlnot been bonded to
Capt. Armstrong. Mr. Jones bee located an extension ot tbit claim, the
Alio* He also located some good
properties on Splllimaobine Mountain
in which Mr. McNeish was interested
with him. Mr. Jones is the owner ot

ROUND ABOUT THE MINES
Mr. Townsend has shut down work
at the International for the winter
months.
An away on a property held by W.
G. Neilson at Beaver gives a trace of
gold, 84 in silver and 14 per cent
copper.
The latest obtainable Pittsburg lead
quotations are: Carload lots, 4.40c;
smaller quantities, 4.55@4.66c; lead
pipe. Go; sheet lead, CJc.
P. Wattelet has transferred the Surprise, Last Chance, Magda, Agnes,
Francs and Hortense olaims, in Bugaboo, to H. E. Langis, of Vanoouver,
Mr. Harvey returned on Saturday
from his visit of inspection to Messrs.
Mltohell-Innes's property at Prairie
Mountain, Work is stopped for the
present at this property.
R. R. Bruce, Manager for Messrs.
Oiler and Hammond's syndicate, has
been visiting the Windermere district
looking up properties to be obtained
with a view to development.
Messrs. Mitchell-Innes have established a winter oamp at the Pretty
Girl olaim at Horscthief Creek and
work will be carried on all winter
nnder the supervision of Tom Jones.
Professor Hardman returned to Carbonate on Friday, having completed
his inspection of the International.
He went on to Steele next day by the
Duchess and will return to Golden
neat week.
The rise in silver from 51} to 50 j
bas stopped most of the talk of shutting down tbe few silver-lead properties that are able to keep above water
at the latter figure. -Mining and
Scientific Press.
The further development of the
Crown Point that is lo be carried on
during the winter months will inolude
the extension of the present tunnel
and the driving of another tunnel 125
test lower down.
The following claims were re-recorded on Sept. 27th: Ruth, by Captain
Armstrong; Minnie, hy M. Carlin:
Charlotte, l.y Capt. Bacon, all at heed
of Vermont Creek; Sept. 28th, Klon
dyke, hy C. Hatch, in Bobble Burns
Basin.
J. White bas made a strike of grey
copper in his claim, the Ironstain, in
Cariboo Basin. He had an assay
from it the other day by Mr. Walton,
and this gsve the result of 1.25 ounces
in gold and 281.75 ounces of silver,
valued at 8180.16 per ton.
Itt the low grade ore that pays In
the end. The Anaconda mine, which
is ��oe ot the greatest aud most profitable in the United States, yielded for
the latt half year 4.84 per oent copper, 16 ounces ol silver and 0.014
ounces gold per ton of ore treated.
Capt. Armstrong haa run the tunnel iu tbe Delos, ou Horsethief Creek,
in a distance of 70 leet, following a
stringer all the way. it is probable
that this stringer runs into the big ore
body showing above. The work wss
done uuder the supervision of Mr.
Jones.
In support of the argument tbat
just ae good gold is likely to be got
between the Parsnip River and the
Tukon as In the Tukon itself we are
informed of a Calgary man who
recently took out an average of 850 a
day In a dry gulch about the headwaters of the Liard River.
Says the Mining and Scientific
Press: A good many holders of location! are called upon to decide whether
it It best to try to hold on lo several
locations or develop one at least to the
extent of meriting a possible purchaser.
Those wbo adopt the latter course
will come out ahead in the long ruu���
or the short run.
Mr. Trueman is Interested In three
claims on Tracey Creek, the ore from
whlob assayt 819.60 in gold and 15
per cent copper. The men In oharge of
the assessmsnt work report thst the
claims are showing up well. Mr. True-
mau is also interested in three claims
on Horsethief Creek, the assays on
which run 84,50 in sold, 25 ounces
silver and 10 per eent copper.
Jas. Lewis A Son, of Liverpool, report copper has advanced to 8245 per
ton. The demand for copper promises
to be very active fer some months to
come. Durlug July, American production decreased over 6,000 tons, the
falling off being chiefly In the output
of the Arlsona mines, though both
Montana and the Lakes produced less
than dnrlng the previous month.
J. Henderson has stopped work for
the present on his olaims at the Bobble Burns Basin. On the' Brysn
claim he drove a tunnel 100 feet wheu
he struck the lead and then out
through it another five feet. The lead
is rather broken where it wat ttruok.
The ore body ie quartt and Iron, and
looks fairly well. The work at the Lincoln consists ot an open out 26 to 80 feet
wide, and 26 feet deep. This out lays
bare tbe lead, whlob presents a Hue
showing and assayed over 1| ounce*
of gold to the ton. Between three and
tour tons of ore have been taken out
and laid on the dump Mr. Hinder,
son expects tb put a winter camp in
after consultation with his  psriners.
The celebrated North Star mine of
East Kootenay has been sold to an
English syndicate for 81,000,000.
C. A. Warren has arranged to have
some development work done on Mr.
Abbott's claims on Carbonate Mountain.
Mr. Curran, manager of the North
Star mine, has purchased a sixth interest in the Coronado group on Wild
Horse.
Messrs. Shote, Forrest and Kenny
have recorded at Donald the Snow-
flake, Viotoria and Clondick olaims on
Bald Mountain.
THE MOYI- MINE.
The owners of this mine are: T.
Houghton, C. E. Fort Steele, B. C;
E. P. Davis, Q. C. Vancouver; J.
Haviland Routly, Harry Abbott, Q. 0.
and George Ross Robertson Estates,
Montreal, The property consists of
two claims, the Moyie and Queen of
the Hills. The ledge running through
these olaims Is a continuation of the
St. Eugene lead. The ore is the same,
running from 40 ounces in silver to 60
per cent lead to 66 ounces in silver and
70 per oent lead. The bulk of development work has bsen done on the Moyie
claim. Through this olaim there are
two leads, known as the North and
South leads. On the North lead there
is 190 feet of timbering completed and
about 200 tons of shipping ore on the
dump. There are also several open
outtings on this lead with a showing
of ore in all.
On the South ledge there is from 8
to 9feet of shafting with bottom of shaft
in solid carbonates. About 60 feet in
vertical depth below shaft there is
an open cutting in 20 feet, with breast
of solid carbonates and galena. Below
this again is a fine showing of galena.
Mr. Houghton, who has been looking
after the work, has been most
successful in laying it out with a view
to securing good results.
A Few Words of Advice Before
Tou Dye.
When you dye at home your chief
view is economy. Home dying economy means the very best results from
a minimum of expense, time and
trouble.
Your object and desires are
fully realised only when the Diamond Dyes are used for vour
work. If you are one of the careless unfortunates who simply take
a package of dye of the color desired
from your dealer, you will in nine
cases out of 10 suffer loss snd great
disappointment, as many merchants
will band you some common dye ruinous to your goods, dangerous to
handle and worthless as far as coloring power is concerned, and on which
a very large profit is made. If you
secure tbe Diamond Dyes your success
is sure and oertain.
Diamond Dyea bave a long record ot
triumphs in home dying work; they
bave been used snd tested in every
land, and have become friends and
family necessities. Happy woman
everywhere dye with Diamond Dyes.

A RED TAPE DEPARTMENT
One ot the most antiquated publio
institutions that Canada possesses is
the Customs Department. It is ruu
on lines that are about as barbarous
as can be. Red tape ties the whole
department round so tightly that it
seems impossible to unloose the tangle,
and to drive some idea of decent administration into the heads of the
officials. Ic is not eo long since, that
we had the department exhibiting
a scandalous abuse of power by tying
up the Navigation Company's steamer
Gwendoline for what seemed no other
motive than that of spite. Now we
have them attempting to block trade
and commerce by the most nonsensical
arrangements. Oui American cousins
can teach the Canadian Custoja House
a wholesome lesson In the way of
studying the publio convenience, and
we know of no better school where
Canada could send her chief customs
officers than into the American Custom house for a lesson. As an instance ot complaint an effort has been
made to get goods from Fort Steele
shipped through Golden this autumn
but when tbe goods arrive here the
rules and regulations of the depart
ment are so hide-bound that the local
officer dare not facilitate the clearance
of these goods in a reasonable way
The Navigation Company or other
agent must have a power of attorney
from tbe person to whom the goods
are consigned and must pay ths duty
at the Oolden office before the goods
can be got, and if the consignee has
not complied with all thia intricate
red tape ond passed entries at Fort
Steele, the goods have got to remain
in Her Majesty's bond until he does.
This means a loss of a fortnight to
three weeks before the matter oan be
put right by mail. Meantime a man'a
business may be ruined while he is
attempting to comply with all the
humbug that is asked ot him before he
can get his goods. It is time the old
officers who are responsible for this
disgraceful state of things were replaced by live men, wbo would recognise
that the world does move, and that
the systems that might do years ago
wont do today. We should then have
the necessary simplification of the
customs system, and modifications
made which would meet the urgent
business requirements. We hope the
Minister in charge of the Customs
Department will take immediate steps
to have the service improved in the
direction required by the public
demands.

What a V. t. OBeer Says of Them.
Burton F. Bennett, dietrict attorney
for Alaska, says:
"The world at large may not realise
it, but there are men up north who are
walking right into death. The snow
is probably flying on White Pass and
if not soon will be. Many propose to
winter at Skagway, but from what I
can learn hundreds do uot propose to
stop there, nor will they return to
civilization.
���They have tbe gold fever at no
body of men had it. Every time they
hear of a ttrike in tbe Yukon country
they get cratier than ever. They will
not nop for mow. They will not
stop for storms. They will keep
pnshiug over White Pass all winter.
I am satisfied that while the snow is
coming down with all Its fury on the
pass, und the wind is blowing awful
gales, this winter you will see men on
White Pass. It is the most damnable
rush I ever heard or read of. These
men do not know anything of the horrors of White Pass In the winter time,
yet they keep on, and just about the
time that winter is at its worst some
of tbem will be caught on White Past.
They will never escape. There is gold
in tbe Tukon country. Why, the
people with all the newspaper talk do
not know what the rush will be in the
coming spring. From tbe letters I
have received from the States, there
will be 10,000 people hi Alaska six
weeks alter the spring ruth hai commenced."

The principal proprietors of the
Columbia River Sawmills are Toronto
people. W. McKensie Is the president,
W.G Neilson, secretary and treasurer,
and M. Carlin manager. These mills
were established at the mouth of the
Beaver in 1889 by F. Robinson, proprietor of the Revelstoke sawmills.
The company at present employ 76
men, oi ot whom are engaged at the
mill and 40 are located at the lumber
camps. The mill is driven by water
power, the supply being obtained from
Quarts Creek at a point about a quarter of a mile distant from the mill,
and the water is conveyed thither
by a large flume fitted with overflow end rock gratings. Tbe
power is supplied by three turbine
wheels, one of 187 horse power, one of
66 bores power and the other of 46
horse power. The mill buildings cover
a large area of ground, with the motive
power, belting, gears and pulleys, and
some of the machinery on the ground
floor, and the bulk of the machinery
on the upper floor. The logs are
drawn to the upper floor by means of a
jack ladder, which extends into the
boom and is adjustable according to
the height of the river. Thence the
logs go on the travelling bench whioh
feeds a large circular saw capable of
cutting 40,000feet a day. From this saw
the lumber runs over a long series of
rollers wbioh carry it to the gang saw
where the stuff is cut that goes to
make No. 1 lumber. Thence it passes
through the edging machine, whioh is
arranged so that the waste pieces are
automatically carried into a shoot and
dumped into the river. The lumber
then passes Into a trimming machine
for trimming tbe ends. The plant
also Includes a draw saw for outtlng
lumber into lengths, machine for
making lathes and an ingenious ar.
range-neat for outting cordwood and
automatically loading It on the car.
The conveniences for loading cats are
specially good, a stage having been
provided fitted with rollers for handling the timber, and eloping to tbe oar
track on either eide. On a stsging bf
the upper floor are two planing
maohines and beneath thie run the
travelling timber wagons on which
the dressed stuff Is loaded and removed to thi yard for storage. There is a
third planer on the ground floor.
The sawdust from the mill is run into
tbe river by elevators. The mill is
well fitted up with tools and appliances for repairing and keeping tbe
plant in order. Theee appliances include two automatic saw sharpeners
for gang and circular saws respectively. There it also a machine shop
for filing the planer knives. A fire
hose is kept ready for emergency.
Iu the yard something like 800,000
feet of lumber is piled ready for market. The output of the mills Is mainly sold in the east. The company
have extensive timber limits running
from a little south of'Oolden for,
about 30 miles down the Columbia
River and aoross the mountains
lo Revelstoke. The timber consists of
spruce, fir and cedar. The company
have been very bnsy lately turning
out piling and large bridge
timber to the order of the C. P. R.
for the Crow'a Neet Road.
There are two out camps, one about
three miles from the mill end tbe other
at Blaeberry. Nine teams of horses are
employed in hauling logs. The employees are accommodated at the mill
boarding house wbioh Is run by Mr.
and Mrs. MeCrimmon. The mill boom
is one of the btst we have seen being
built on strong piling driven into the
bed of the river and supported by a
substantial none crib work. There ie a
���team mill at thi month of tht Beaver but tt hat not bsen used for some
yean. The mill presents the appearance of a small town with the houses
of the workmen, blacksmith shop,
churoh for the use of all sects and a store
run by the company for the convenience of the hande. There is also a
library and reading room whieh le
well supplied with the news and the
illustrated papers and which appears
to be well patronised. What strikes a
visitor to the mills Is the exceptional
cleanliness and methodical arrangement. The fact that the main line of
the C.P.R. runt alongside their yard
gives tbe Company' specially good
facilities for shipping their lumber.
W. G. Nellson, J. P., hee bsen general manager of the mills since 1889;
W. B. Robertson Is thi accountant,
and joined the company about a year
ago; W. Higgtnson le tht mill foreman
and hu held thie position for the
paet three yean, and 8. Harding It ih
charge of the shipping department.
Owing to water power being und the
milli have to shut down absolutely
from the middle of November till April.
During that time special attention ie
given to cutting and running oat the
for tbe C.P.R. and to getting, logo lo
nedlnees to float down when the
watar opens for tbe lesson's cutting.
Now thst Mr. Carlin hae joined tbe
company it is their Intention to push
business end tbe result will no doubt
be an Incteaee In the number of men
employed by Ibe company, and In
greater activity about the Beaver,
which It in a fair way of blooming a
mlntog ae well ae a lumbering oentre.

their sympathy
la -rdnd with

any human being

There are thousand, of men who
ne recklessly risking their Uvea while they
go about their common every-day avocations. They over-work, they do not take
���ufldeat tin-* from business or labor to eat
or sleep or rest, or to care for their health.
Outraged nature throws ont danger signals,
to which tbey pay no heed. They suffer
from bilious or nervous disorders, from
sick headache, giddiness, drowsiness, cold
chills, flushing, of heat, abort-ess of
breath, blotches on the akin, loss of appetite, uncomfortable sensations in tbe
stomach after meals, loss of sleep, lassl-
tude and trembling sensations. These are
the advance symptoms of serious snd fatal
maladies.
All disorders of this nature are cured by
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, ft
restores the lost appetite, gives sound and
refreshing sleep, makes the digestion perfect, tbe liver active. It purifies the blood
and makes it rich with the life-giving elements of the food. It is the great blood-
maker and flesh-builder. It makes the body
active and the brain keen. It is the best
of nerve tonics. Thousands have testiiied
to its merits. No honest dealer will urge
upon you a substitute for the little extra
profit It may afford.
The nun or woman who neglects constipation is gathering in the system a store
of disorders that will culminate in some
serious snd possibly fatal malady. Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are a safe, sure,
speedy and permanent cure for constipation. One little " Pellet" ts a gentle laxative, and two a mild cathartic.

Tear. Ago.
Some years ago Mrt. D. O'Connor,
of Guelph, Ont, tufered from the
tortures of indigestion, neuraliga,
heart trouble, noise in the hesd, sleeplessness, despondency and weakness.
Her case was an exceptionally serious
one, as her troubles had been dragging
her down for over twenty-five yeara.
At the time her case quite baffled the
best doctors.
Getting wearied with medical treatment that gave no promising results,
she was fortunately directed to that
life saver, Paine's Celery Compound,
and like thousands before ber, she
found a new life. Mra. O'Connor wat
recently atked the question. "What
it your present opinion of Paine's
Celery Compound?" She answered as
' /ollows:
"In reply to your communication regarding Paine's Celery Comoounjl,
would say that I cheerfully recommend it to anyone suffering as I was.
It did for me ull that woe required.
'My advice to every one 1 come in contact with is, 'Always keep a bottle of
Paine's Celery Compound in the
house.' Several people hare used it on
tny recommendation and have been
beoeBttel. Tou can use these lines

Kidney Trouble Cured
A Well Known Hotel Keeper
Relates Kls Experience
He U-aSsM- OMatly From Kidney
Trouble and ladlgeMlon���He Doctored for a Long. Time Without
dotting any Belief
The march of the world's progress
is forced, protracted and continuous,
the competition for supremacy is keen.
The man of business must keep rank
if he would secure any covetable measure of success. The watchfulness,
vigor and thought involved in modern
superintended}- produces a severe
strain on the physical and mental
powers of modern business msn, and
exposes them to the attacks of certain
diseases. Considering that muoh depends on health In tbls struggle, it
behoves those who would be victor-
leas to guard against the first approach of disease. Neglect of early
adjustment ot digestive and kidney
disorders is often fraught with dire
results, added to thit Is the unpardonable triflling with health by experimenting with all kind of worthless
decoctions. It is simply invaluable to
make the acquaintance of a safe and
effective remedy such as Dr. Williams'
Viak Pills. James MoPhereon hotel
keeper In the village of Lancaster,
Glengarry County, has done business
for a number of yean tn Lancaster,
aad having successfully catered for
patronage ot the travelling publio
therefore is favorably known not only
at home but also abroad. In conversation with a newipaper reporter he
enumerated tome of hit ailments and
how he waa cured. About two years
ago he said, "my whole digestive apparatus seemed to become disordered,
Some daye I could move around, then
again I would be obliged to go to bed.
I trisd several things but with indifferent success. Occasionally I felt re-
leived but in a day or two the old
symptoms would return with a more
depressing effect. This kind of thing
went on until I became troubled with
mykldneys, which was a very annoying
addition to my sufferings. I waa
restless with a sensation of sickness
it the stomach, with intermittent
pain in the email of my back. I was
miserable enough when I consulted
the doctor who probably did me some
good, because I felt relieved. The
doctor's medioine was tsksn and his
directions obeyed, but I did not improve. I had heard of the fame of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. My wife believed in them and urged me to try them
I am glad I did so for after taking one
box I felt battel, and I continued taking the pills until I was couipeltely
cured. Thit inmmer I had an attaok
ql the same complaints and found Dr.
William's Pink Pills aa effective as
before. I had thit advantage, my
knowledge and belief in tbe pills saved
me from costly snd tedious experimenting such as I had undergone previously. I may further add that both
myself and Mrs. McPherson have derived much benefit from the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink PiUs, and I can
cordially recommend them to those
suffering similarly."

Greatest Mine In the World
Tbis distriot is coming loon to the
front and one of the most aspiring locations in Moyie ts the townsite of Sifton at the north end of the Moyie Lake,
and distant 12 miles from Cranbrook
and 21 miles from Fort Steele. A
semi weekly stage connects Fort Steele
with Sifton and runs to Moyie City,
eight miles south of Sifton. The
stage fare is (2.76. At the time of

yan is manager of the freighting
business.
At preeent tt is bird to lay when
the ohiet town of Moyie distriot will
be located but there ii bound to be an
important town there. A good many
believe Sifton posesses the most advantages and the owners are waiting
to see when the C. P. R. line will be
located before laying out the town.
As soon ai the definite location has
been fixed upon the townsite will be
put on the market.

The centre of attraction in the Moyie
district is of course the Eugene mine,
and adjoining it is the St. Peter.
These mines are owned by Messn Finch
Larsen, White, Cronin and others,
and an acknowledged to constitute
one of the largest silver-lead proposition- in the world. Then an 6000
tons of on on tbe dump running 65
ounces of silver and 70 per cent of lead
to tbe ton, Sixty thousand tons of
on have been blocked out, of an
average value of 160 per ton, or in
other words the owners have $3,600,-
000 worth of ore ready for transportation aa toon at the Crow't Nest Road
is open for traffic to enable them to
get it ont. 1700,000 have been offered
for the property but at the present
time It ts not for sale. The mine is
1400 feet above Moyie Lake and within
three quarters of a mile of when the
railway will pass. Connection will
be afforded by a tramway two and a
half miles in length.
Weet of the lake what Is appanntly
the same lead has again been struck,
with showings similar to those of tbe
Eugene, and claims have been staked
all over it. Messn. Knits-el, Johnson
and Sanburn have bonded the olaims
eaat of the St, Eugene to Mr Barr, of
California, for $60,000, $1,000 payable
in 60 daye and $2,000 payable in
