House.
The recent additions to the Colombia House have made ic one of tbe
finest and best equipped hotels in the
inland districts of British Columbia.
Tbe new portion of the building is 61 ft.
by 30 ft., and three storeys in height,
a tower seven feet square gracing the
corner of the new wing. On the
ground floor of the new section are two
offices and a line puhlio ha]1. The
offices are each 14 ft. by 14 ft., one on
each side of the hall. That on the
right will be used as the town office of
the Upper Columbia It LuinlerCo.,and
that on the left will he the room of the
North East Kootenay Miners' Association. These offices are plastered
throughout aud nicely furnished wi-.h
a handsome centrepiece on tbe ceiling
of each room.
The Public Hall is 46 ft. by 30 ft.,
with a stage nine feet in depth and
running the full width of the room.
The floor space affords accomodation
for 271) people. Complete arrangements have been made for thoroughly
lighting the hall and for heating it in
winter. The plastering of the hall is
an exceptionally fine piece of work and
refects high credit, on the skill of Mr.
Winn, of Calgary, who was entrusted
with it. The ceiling is divided into
four panels,, with a large and handsomely designed centre flower in each,
ani arranged so that from each centre
flower a chandelier and gas bracket
will be suspended. Mr. Winn made
tbe moulds on the premises from which
the centre flowers we re built in sections, each Dower beiwr 6 ft, 2 in, in
length. The main beam is set off by
a two inch bead. Around the panels
runs a deep moulding ol tasty design
while a bold cornice round the room
sets ot the whole of ihe elaborate work
of the ceiling to a nicety, the designs
and moulds for these having also been
made by Mr. Winn in tbe room itself.
Mr. McNeish has been fortunate in
getting an artist of Mr. Winn's skill
to undertake this part of the work.
The hall has been supplied with a first-
class Karti Piano and will be found by
dramatic and concert companies and
lecturers to be one of the bast equipped
halls on the road.
I'IRST rLAT.
Access to the upper portion of the
new building is provided from the
main entrance of the former building.
On the first floor of the new building
are two parlours, one opening on the
balcony and lighted by a bay window,
and the other opening into the tower,
which with windows ontbreeaidesgjvrg
an all-round view from the ante room
of seven feet square thus crested.
These parlours are respectively 14 f-et
by 14 feet, and 16 feet hy 14 feet. On
this flat there are seven bedrooms each
12 feet by 14 feet. A covered stairway
at the back answers the purpose ol a
fire escape,
SECOND FIAT.
On the second floor le another parlour opening to the tower and of the
earn* dimension* a* the one on the
first flat. There are also eight bedrooms of 12 by 14 feet each. This flat
also connect* with the oovered stairway at tb* rear of the building. A
dost shoot connects with the varioue
floors for the convenience of the domestics in their daily cleaning up round,
a* by means of this the sweepings are
shot to the ground without the necessity of travelling up and down the
stair-cases.
The new addition gives the Columbia
House the accomodation of forty bedrooms, fivesitting-rootni", dining-room,
billit.rd.room. two offices and hall.
Brick chimneys have been erected to
afford a complete system of heating,
and the chimneys run the full length
of the building, the foundations having been sunk four feet in the ground.
The hotel is handsomely and comfortably furnished throughout and should
prove a favorite with Mr. McNeish's
guests. The contract for the building
was let to Mr. J. Henderson and has
been most creditably carried out by
him. The building will be lighted
throughout with acetylene gas, and
the installation is now being completed. Electric bells, with a full system
of Indicators, have been fitted up. A
well-fitted bathroom has also been provided and is supplied with abundance
of hot and oold water. The building
I* plestered throughout, this work
having been entrusted to Mr. Winn,
who ha* made a first-class job of it.
Mr. McNeish proposes to ley out as
a lawn the grounds between the new
portion of th* building and hia private
residence, and he ia snaring no effort
to gain tor Ih* Columbia House a premier place among the hotels of B. C.
We wish him ibe success he deserves
in his enterprise.
The Bennison Mine.
Great Body of Rich Ore Optned
Out.
The No 1 tunnel on the Bennison
mine hns been driven 180 leet, a crosscut being now driven on the vein.
When Major Clohecy left the work
appeared to have reached the edge of
the vein. The extension of the cut on
the Boston vein has exposed a body of
ore at least 30 feet in width, whereas
this lead has hitherto been supposed to
be only 14 feet wide. It will be remembered that the smelter test of ore
from this lead went from (60 tc $300
to the ton. The value of tbe new development is therefore evident. More
than lhat, this lead has been discover
ed by Major Clohecy on the other side
ofthe mountain; within the boundary
of the Boston claim, and near the International, and the ore is of tbe same
class as on the ISenuinon side, consisting of a rich grey copper. There is
not a mine in British Columbia today
with the fine prospects of this mine.
The owners regard it as a " world-
beater" and from what we have seen
ol ibe property we must say we consider they are f .Ily justified in this
opinion. There is nothing in British
Columbia today to beat it.

ROUND ABOUT THE MINES
Ralph Hughes and A. H. Logsn
have made an important discovery
olosi to Wells's Landing, the locationsI
being within three miles of the Col-
umbia River. The ore is a copper-gold
deposit and lies between lime ami
granite formations. The lead seems
to be an enormous one, the mineral
showing being 60 feet wide. It is intended to do some development work
on the property immediately. Four j
claims hare been staked on the discovery, one of them being right alongside
the Vermont (.'nek sleigh road
S. Yuill has completed the Quartz
Creek trail that was promised last
election by Col. Baker. This trail runs
from the Bald Mountain trail, off the
C. P. R. line at the Columbia Hirer
bridge, crosses the Porcupine River,
and runs to Quartz Creek, a distance
of 18 miles. The trail will give access
to the claim* bon led by the British
America Corporation and on which the
Company are about to do development
tr'ork.

UPPER COLUMBIA
NAVIGATION CO'S CHARTER
"With reference to the article in lust
issuo on the Upper Columbia Navigation and Tramway Company, we are
assured that the Company had nothing
whatever to do with the canal scheme
between the Upper Columbia Lako and
the Kootonay Rirer, and that as a
matter of fact the Navigation Company was not in existence at the time
that canal was projected. It is further
pointed out to us that the statement
that the Company has monopolized
the Valley lands is untrue., as the
Navigation Company's land rights aro
based on very different conditions from
those of the other charters granted in
the district. It is true the Company
was authorised to take up an area of
public lands for each mile of tramway
that it built, the laud covered by snch
rights amounting to somewhere about
1(1,000 acres; but on the other hand
there wero conditions attach ing to
these lands which prevented tho coin-
pan}* availing itself of its right, except
to a very small extent, covered up to
the present by threo lots of land aggregating about 1,000 acres. The
position in which the Company is
placed will be evident from the following clauses of the charter :���
" 1. It shall be lawful for the
Lieut-Governor in Council to grant to
the Company the pro-seeds (as hereinafter defined) of such lands, not exceeding two thousand acres for each
mile of tramway to be constructed by
tho said tramway Company, aud not
exceeding in all 10,000 acres, as shall
he selected by the Company in accordance with the conditions hereinafter
contained, from the area bounded as
follows:���On the north by the Southern boundary of the Canadian Pacific
Railway blocks; on the South by the
fiftieth parallel of north latitude; on
the East by the eastern boundary of
the electoral district of East Kootenay;
and on the West by the western boundary of said district, upon conditions of
their commencing and constructing
the said portion of the line ofthe Company within the time and according to
the terms of their Act of Incorporation, and upon the further condition
that the said Company furnish due
security for such construction in the
manner hereafter mentioned.
3. The lands, tha proceeds of which
are to be taken by the Company, shall
be pre-empted, leased or acquired in
the manner provided by tho land laws
of the Province in force, and shall be
in blocks of such size i.h is provided
by tho said laws, provided that the
said pre-emptions shall be cf full size
of lu'O acres.
4. Upon the Company desiring to
select any lands which it may be in a
position to provide with an occupant,
in accordance with the provisions of
the Land Acts, it shall notify the
Lieut-Governor in Council of such
facts and of descriptions and amount
of land which it desires to tele&t, and
of the nature of the same, and of the
particular provisions of the Land Acts
under which tbe same is intended to
be acquired; and it shall therefore be
lawful for tho Lieut-Governor in Council, upon the recommondatton of the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works, showing that all the conditions hereof and of tho Land Act hare
been compliod with, to order that the
proceeds of such lands, whether the
same be in the shape of a bonus or
rent for timber, or grazing leases,   or
payments for lands pre-empted, or in
other shape whatsoever, shall be payable to, and collected by the Company,
but all provisions of the Land Acts respecting the rights acquired and the
conditions thereof shall be observed by
the person entering upon tbe land,
with the exception that wliere by the
Land Act payments are required to be
made to the Government, the. same
shall be deemed effectual iF made to
ihe Company."
From the above clauses of the Company's charter it is therefore evident
that the Company has no block of
land set aside whatever, und cannot
have any hinds set aside until such
time ay it hns settlers ready to go upon
the land. This article will therefore
remove the apprehension that has
existed lhat the Company had a blati*
Uet charter over some 1(1,000 acrc'3 of
land in the vicinity of Spillimachene.
As a mutter of fact the Company finds!
it wolf'nigh impossible to ake tipj
land under tho terms of the charter
and these lands at SpiJlimuchone are
just as much open to pre-emption
direct from the Government to the settler as the lands an; open to the Company to pre-empt whenever it can [get
a settler who will take up a piece of
land. The Company cannot put more
than tho Government price on lands
which it may so pre-empt, aud it is
thus in a very different position from
the C. P. R. and Kootenay land
charters, as these companies havo the
right to levy what price they like for
the land included in their charters;
and they have quoted as high as ��.f.'.
per acre for some of their lands, An
injustice has therefore been done the
Company, for winch we express our
regret, as we do not wisli to misrepresent the position of any individual or
corporation. The public generally
have been under the impression that
the Upper Columbia Navigation Co's
charter was subject to the same terms
as the other charters in the district,
and now that the facts are Ix'foro us
we are glad to learn that it is not,   so.

iBrt^^^^j   J mnt,yas a thou-
I U&^^^tir^Ks^-n sand babies have
died in a week.
Of course, in a
crowded city,
with its unsanitary d istrictft,
ni n n y of these
deaths would
have occurred
any way. The
fact remains that this tremendous mortality
���ras to a great extent due to the lack of
Inherent resisting power in the victims.
These babies when boni had iu their bodies
the seeds of disease. The deadly heated
term only shortened the period of their
sufferings,
If a woman wishes her babies to be
healthy and strong mid able to resist the
usual ailments of childhood, she must take
proper care of herself in a womanly way
during the period of gestation. A woman
who Buffers from weakness and disease of
the organs distinctly feminine is unfitted
forwifehood and motherhood. Dr. Pierce'a
Favorite Prescription is a wonderful medicine for ailing: women. It acts directly on
the delicate and important organs concerned. It makes them well and strong.
It allays inflammation, heals ulceration,
soothes pain, slops exhausting drains and
(riven rest and tone to the tortured nerves.
Thousands of women have testified to its
almost miraculous merits. Many of them
have permitted their names, addresses,
experiences and photographs to be repro-
duced in Dr. Pjerc*��'a Common Sense Medical Adviser. This great book used to sell
for Si.50, now it is absolutely free. It tells

Repaired.
A medicine that is constantly and
incessantly working needs   repairs ai
certain intervals.   ,
The oilman frame, worn by mental
and physical toil and subjected to the
worries and cares of our modern life,
has need of repairs and bnilding up
In the hot summer weather nervous
energy is at a low ebb, and as a con*
���sequence, nervous debility, terrible
headaches, dyspepsia aud a run-down
condition make Ufa a burden for
thousands.
Paine's Celery Compound is the
great repairer and builder when weak
ness and sickness prevail This great
medicine has the power of rapidly repairing the tissues and purifying the
blood. It bestows the proper nutriment to all tho weakened tissues,
bringing strength and true vigor, thus
averting breakdown and collapse.
Thousands of lives are now fast
wearing out that can be prolonged and
made happy by ihe present use_ of
Paine's Celery Com] ound. Its use today will save months of sickness,
misery and suffering, Take no substitute; get only "Paine's," the kind

It seems that the little trick of the
Government in regard to the Cassiar
elections did not come off as anticipated. Tho returning officer has reached
Victoria aud appears 10 have fixed the
nominations before theGpv't agent arrived. The returning officer^is the
authority for tbe statement that there
is not ono government candidate in the
field for Cassiar. G. A. MoTavish is
a pronounced Oppositionist and Cunt.
Irving and C. \V: 1). Clifford, who are
tho oilier two candidates are running
ns Independent und have disavows]
the Government, This means thai
the Opposition artj practically certain
of two Cassiar seats, thus.giv.ingthein
22seats ns against the Government's
It!. The Opposition will therefore face
Parliament with a strong working
majority. We must take this oppor
tunity of congratulating the supper
ters of the Opposition in this district
on the splendid victory that has .been
achieved for the party, a success which,
in face of the difficulties of the contest
and the large majority that had to be
overcome, is almost unparalelled in
Canadian politics.

THE GOLDEN EKA, FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1898.
Besult
of the
Elections.
As Others   See   Us.
The Opposition Party Congratulated on all Hands.
The Morden (Man.) Chronicle, of
Thursday last says : "The present
Turner Ministry is the lineal descendant of several Ministries, under different Premiers, but governed by identical principles of high-handed extravagance, and maintained in place by a
bold quality of' nerve' that passed for
ability. In any part ol Canada, outside of British Columbia. Premier
Turner would scarcely be considered a
fourth rate man, and j et he is a brighter man and more forceable than any of
his colleagues. This may seem pretty
bard on the colleagues, but ic is certainly true that a more incapable lot
sf men never before combined to form
a government in Canada. With an
impoverished country of 05,000 while
inhabitants, the Government is responsible for the construction of Parliament buildings costing over $1,000,000.
Practically a<l the desirable land* in
the Province have been given away to
railway charter manipulators, and the
public debt has been piled up as near
as may be to the end of the burrowing
power. Under villainous management,
British Columbia has become the most
scandalously encumbered Province iu
the Dominion, and has practically
nothing to show for the debt incurred."
NEW BROOMS WANTED.
The Ottawa Journal I'eclures : "The
Turner Government, to maintain p w-
er, seems to have been going it wild as
regards railway subsides, and to have
displayed a lack of scruple.and to have
resolved to other ways which would
not give one much confidence in its
work. It will be just as well to have
new brooms in."
CoSORA.mATlO.NS.
' From the Toronto Telegram : " British Columbia is to be'congratulated on
its heroic effort lo defeat il.e Turner
Government. The position of the
government is wotse than it looks, because its slight inferiority to the Opposition in the number cf supporters
in the legislature is representative of a
still greater inferiority in the number
of supporters in the Province. The
Turner government arranged the con
���tituencies to suit itself, and if the op.
position has even a slight lead in tho
legislature it must have a large majority of tbe popular rote."
PARTY LINES IN PROSPECT.
The Rossland Miner says: "By
the result of the elections last Saturday a new order o: things politically
has undoubtedly arisen in British Col
nmbia. From now on the struggle for
th* control of the public affairs of this
Province will be conducted nu straight
party lines, audthenoxt general elections, whenever tbey iniy bi, will, it
is safe to say, see candidates for legislative honors appealing to the electorate as Conservatives or Liberals."
OOVERNMENT LIES.
In his speeches in this district Mr.
Hunter described Joe Martin as an annexationist. So the Winnipeg Tribune
replies: "The tomfoolery cry was
raised against Mr. Martin at au election iu this city, and he defeated his
opponent by 400 or BOO votes. The
Government party is hard up for material when they raise theory that Mr.
Martin is an annexationist. He is the
kind of Canadian that Canada is not
over-stocked with, much to ber loss,
The designation, annexationist, applies
with a good deil more force to the
Turnerites, whoss policy is to annex
the public domain to monopolies and
railway corporations,"
A BAD REPUTATION.
Thus the Province: "When the
smoke of the battle clears away, the
Government forces will consist of a
corporal's guard and a reputation for
dishonesty that stinks in the nostrils
of mankind."
A   DISGRACEFUL   TRICK.
The Province says: "The Cassiar
nominations are typical of the corrupt
and shameless Turner administration.
The same spirit of disreputable trickery
that has characterised the methods of
Premier Turner aud his associates in
all their dealings with the peeplo is
shown here in tho most conspicuous
manner. If the people of British Columbia stand this sort of thing they
are fools. It is ,i rank, glaring, barefaced and fraudulent attempt to prevent the expression ot tho people's will
at the polls and corrupt t'.ie spirit of
Good Government, Political adventurers who resortio the tactics that
havejml come to the liglit lo^arding
Cassiar are no better than those who
play with loaded dice and marked
cards,"
THE OUTRAGE CONDEMNED.
Referring to tho Government trickery in conneutioa, with the Cassiar
election, the Columbian says: " Language (ails to adequately characterize
the outrage pf the tiling. It was an
out-age sufficiant to everlastingly
the

THE OPPOSITION LEADER.
The B. C. Mining Journal says: "A
large crowd of old friends und enthusiastic supporters of Ur. C. A. Somlin
met him at the depot on his arrival in
town, after the election returns were
in sufficiently to show that the Opposition had wou a victory more or less
pronounced, and with cheers and con
gratiilatory speeches welcomed him
home and escorted him to his hotel.
No man in British Columbia, in
publio or in private life, has more
friends than has Mr. Charles A. Semlin, soon, as it now looks, to be premier of the province, and the future of
the province while directed by himself
and advisers will, we feel certain, be
free from any accusations of official
corruption,"
THE CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION.
Hon. D. W. Higglns who is acknowledged to be the best informed man on
parliamentary law in Canada expresses the opinion that tbo Lieutenant-Governor should refuse to sanction the
payment of special warrants or con-
firm appointments made since the 9th
inst. He should also, Mr. Higglns
Gontendi,demand that negotiations for
tbe issue of the 15,000,000 loan should
be suspended and a cable sent to London to that effect at onco.
damn any Government-the creation
of a rotten borough like Cassiar, with
a representation that enables the three
hundred odd scattered and comparatively uninformed and Indifferent voters of lhat iiiolar al, out-of-tlie-world
region to prac cully nullify the voice,
in the Legislature, of from fifteen bun,
dred to two th jus,., d voters iu the
centres of popul .tlou nud intelligent
political sentiment of the Province I
But, to this indescribable outrage, the
Government have added the cool, highhanded villainy of so manipulating the
elections, iu this rottenest of rotten
boroughs, as to bar the Opposition
from even entering the lists I"

Mr. C. H. Parson, as Manager ofthe

At one time tbe C. P. R. proposed to
build a branch line up the Beaver
Valley, simply for the purpose of making the magnificent scenery here available to tourists.

A. H. Mitchell, of Columbia Valley,
who was returning officer at the election, writes informing us that the
statement is not true that he opened
the poll at Shorty's and then removed
it to his own house. It appears that a
number of people in the valley understood that tbe poll was to be at
Shorty's, and were annoyed to find
that the returning officer had fixed his
own house, which is out of tbe way
from the main road, as the polling
booth. Shorty's was undoubtly the
proper place for the poll being held
as it was so much more central.
Messrs. Mercier and Macaulay were
the victims of a bard circumstance at
Spillimimachono the other day. They
came down from Bugaboo and had been
waiting for the boat, when Mr. Mercier went into Spillimachene House to
have dinner, wa ch being kept meantime for the boat. As soon as it was
seen the men rushed out, but the boat
swept by at full speed and Messrs Mercier and Maoaulay were left, feeling
very ingignant that although their
signal was seen, the boat did not return to pick them up. Capt. Bacon's
version to the story is that the flag
whioh should be put out as a signal to
stop was not there, and he was not
aware that there were any passengers
until be had got so far down stream
hat he would have to turn the
Dutchess, meaning half an hours delay. Siill every effort should be made
to accommodate the travelling public,
and it was decidedly hard lhat these
men should be left, even after thev bad
succed in calling the attention of the
boat.
There la no joy in this world equal
to the happiness of motherhood. A
woman's health is her dearest possession. Good looks, good times, happi
ness, love and its continuance, depend
on her health. Almost all ol the sick-:
ness of women is traceable directly or
indirectly to some deraegmeut ol the
organs distinctly feminine. Troubles
of this kind ore often neglected because
a vety natural aud proper modesty
keeps women away from physicians,
whose insistence upon examination
and local treatment is generally as
useless as It Is common. Dr. Pierce's:
Favorite Prescription will do more
for them than 99 doctors in   100.   It
ill do more than the hundredth doctor can uuless he prescribes it. It is a
prescription of Dr, R. V. Pierce, who
for 30 years has been chief consulting
physician of the World's Dispensary
and Invalids' Hotel at Buffalo, N. Y.

AGONIZING     PAINS.
ttndared ��y Tboe* Who gweT.r Prom
Sciatica--A Victim Tails Bow to
Obtain Belief.
Probably no trouble that affliots mankind causes more intense agony than
sciatica. Frequently the victim is
utterly helpless, the least movement
cauaing the most agonising pains.
Those who are suffering from this
malady the following statement from
.Mr. John Hayes, of Hayesville, York
Co., N. B , will point the road to relief and cure: Mr. Hayes says:-
" For upward of twenty years I have
suffered from weakness and pain in
the back. Some four years ago my
trouble was intensified by sciatica settling in my right leg. What I suffered seems almost beyond description. I
employed three doctors but all to no
purpose: I had to give up my work
entirely, and almost despaired of life.
This continued for two 'ears-years
filled with misery. At this time I was
advised to try Dr, Williams' Pink
Pills, aud after using six boxes both
the sciatica and the weakness in tbe
back which had troubled me so long,
were gone. I was again a well man
and feeling fifteen years younger than
before I bagan the pills. Nearly two
years have passed since I discontinued
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and in that time no symptom of the
trouble has shown itself. Under God
I thank Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
wha- they have done for me."
Mr. Hayes voluntarily testifies to
the truth of the above statement before Edward Whoseud, Esq., J, P.,
and his statements are further vouched
for bv Rev. J. N. Barnes, of Stanley,
N. B. 480

A Manly Candidate.
Says the Nelson Tribune: ��� "Wolls,
the defeated Opposilion candidate in
nortoast Kootenay, is made of pretty
geod stuff. He was defeated by a man
upon whosesupport he relied. TIibsuc-
cessful candidate's major)y was a narrow one. The! e were certain irregularities cummiied which were sufficient iu
themselves to upset the election, but
Wells has announced that he will not he
a party to a protest. He says that his
opponent got a majority of tbe votes
and that is sufficient for him. When it
is remembered tbat the party in whose
interest Wells made tho race, won a
majority ofthe seats contested for, and
that in the event of reopening the constituency he would be almost certain
of election, there is much to applaud iu
Wells' manliness."
Ou the same neglect the Kootenay
Mail says' "Mr. Wells,style could be
followed with advantage by some
beaten candinates and does him considerable credit."
Cranbrook.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce
has opened a branch at Cranbrook and
