Onlffary Rinks Knocked Out--Trophy
HcinalnH iu ttotdon--Flay 1h Not
Tot Finished -- The Curlers Ball
Wan n SnceesN. j11
The Golden bonspeil opened early o
"Wednesday morning and, although
the piny is not finished, the contest fo
the Columbia River Lumber Company's trophy remains between our
local rinks, both of the Caltjary rinks
having been knocked out in their first
game.
The Calgary rinks, which were made
up from tho following gentleman,
Messrs. Kinnisten, Spafford, Parslow,
Johnston, Skinner, McLeod, Meldru
Doll and Van Wart, arrived in town
on Monday's No. 1, which was over \2
hours late, and, owing to the non
arrival of tho Sandon boys on Tuos
day's No. 2, the draw was not mado
until late that evening.
The ball wns set. going on Wednesday morning nt 4 a.m. when Houston
defeated Kinnisten in a well contested
game by a score of 11 to 9. At the
same hour Brock (who had collected a
2-year-old rink) didn't i\o a thing but
shut Skinner out to the "rocky" 'line
of li) to 3. This left the balance of
Ihe play with the local curlers and tbe
finals will likely be played this evening and tomorrow.
The Calgaryitos returned homo ou
Wednesday's No. 2 and, although they
had not brought their luck with them,
oil expressed themselves as having*
had a good trip and a pleasant sojourn
and intimated that next season they
would try to change their standing
with the mining town sweeps.
Tho trophy presented by the Columbia Elver Lumber Company for competition at the Golden bonspeil is a
very handsome one, and has been on
view during the week at C. A. Warren's store. The Golden men are to be
congratulated on retaining this fine
trophy.
THE OUBLBnS BALL,
Tho curlers ball came off ou Tuesday
evening in the Oddfellows hull, when
all the visiting and local wielders of
the besom turned out and on joyed n
pleasant tripping of the toe with a
host of Golden'ti fair sex.
The committeo had been unfortunate
in the line of string music, two gentlemen of violin famo whom they had engaged failing to turn up, and Mrs.
Mercier, who so kindly responded on
short notice, furnished the bill on the
piano in first, class style, many of her
selections being rapturously applauded.
A number of extras were also played
in splendid time by Mrs. Erickson. of
Field, and Mrs. C. H, Parson and Mr.
G. H. Mitchell, of Golden.
During intermission refreshments
wero passed round by the members of
tho committee aud their many assistants, and everybody enjoyed a pleasant after-lunch chat on the pros and
cons of a ���trip to Klondiko and other
local tit bits.
The gathering dispersed in tho vicinity of 3 o'clock, everybody expressing themselves as having spent a
pleasant -evening and vouching that,
unless the unforseen turned up, they
would be delighted to attend again on
a similar occasion.
The committee desire us to tender
their most grateful thanks to the
many ladies who so kindly provided
tho bounteous an poly of eatables for
the evening's ropast, and also to Hon.
F. W. Aylmer for having placed his
room at the disposal of the ladies.
BOUND ABOUT THE MINES
A Brewery Creek placer lease has ���
been bonded for -$15,000.
Closing quotations: Bar Silver 50Jj

Col. George Poherty has bonded a
half-mile of Brewery creek placer
ground to T. C. Proctor of Nelson.
Mr. Gnrd intends doing some further development work on properties
which his Company holds in the O'-
tertail district.
J, Dolmage has been entrusted with
tho development work to be done on
claims at Ottcrtail belonging to the
Anglo-Canadian Syndicate-
According to the Prospector, within
a radius of 12 miles of Fort Steele
there nre at least seven claims that
Till become shippers during tho coming summer.
C. Hatch and A. Langlands had to
abandon work on Sunday mine at Ottcrtail owing to,the quantity of water
that is coming into the shaft. This
shaft is 30 feet deop and is down in
ore.
W. A.Carlyle has resigned the office
of Provincial Mineralogist to till the
position of superintendent of tho British American Corporation, Mr. Car-
lyle's resignation will bo learned of
with widespread regret.
Mr. P, Watelet, who is largely interested in several mining claims in East
Kootenay, is in Vancouver. A deal
will probably go through by which
Mr. Watelet will dispose of a portion
of hie interest, at a satisfactory figure.
P, F. Matthias, of ltevelstoke, will
occupy tbe position of local manager
fer the B. 0. Gold Fields Co., Ltd., In
place of H. W. Sherlock, resigned. J.
D. Graham is   now manager   for the
Province of tho Gold Fields   Co's interests.
C. D. Williams, representing the
Canadian Rand Drill company, has
sold to 11. O, Jennings of Fort Steele,
a big power pump for use in th* hydraulic mining plant which the Jennings company is installing on Brewery Creek, n confluent of the Wild
Horse, Mr, Jennings contemplates extensive development of tho property,
which comprises nearly a mile of
ground. He speaks very encouragingly
of the mining development around
Fort Steele.    Kosslnud Times.
A new discovery of gold has boon
mado ou Pelly river. A Mr. Boyleson,
has received a letter from his brother,
via Lake Lindcmnn, stating that he
had struck a rich placer bed on the Pelly, near its junction with the McMillan
river. Ho advised his brother in ""he
following language: "Drop everything and come right away, if not too
late in the season, I am dazzled with
gold. One pan turned me $226 and I
an down only 10 feet." Mr. Boyleson
dropped everything and went. Ho
dosed his tent store aud started iu
"light" for Pelly River. If the diggings oontinue to pan ont as well as the
discovery hole, another Klondike has
been struck. Gold has been always
found on the bars of the Pelly, but not
in such richness as Boyleson reports,���
Chicago Tribune.
W. A. Carlyle, provincial mineralogist, says his decided opinion is that
the law regulating the location of
mineral claims in this province should
be amended so that within GO, or perhaps 00 days, after the staking of a
claim a certain amount of work on the
claim before it. can be recorded should bo
mado impeatalve. He says ho does not
specify that tho amount of work to be
done should equal in value 8100, as this
amount would bo both excessive and
prohibitive."     He   ekes that in Colo-

HISBRAL ACT AilENDNKNTri.
The Kootenay Miners Protective Association propose that tho holder of   a
mineral claim may do several years'
assessment work upon the claim in ono
year, aud secure a certificate for each
j* 100 worth of work performed, which
certificates shall bo sufficient to keep
the claim alivo during the period coveted by the sumo. Tho amendment
is offered witli a view to meeting the
wishes of those who desire to leavo
thoir claims for one or more years.
Another amendment proposed has
for its object the extension of certificates of record of work douo upon
claims, for a period of (JO days. This
is to provide for cases in which miners
are delayed in their efforts to reach
the rocord office and record assessment
work. The amendment would give all
such a period of (iO days in which to
make good their lapse. With a view
to checking any abuse of this privilege it is proposed that an extra fee of
five dollars be imposed upon all who
avail themselves of it.
A somewhat similar amendment is
desired to the section of the mineral
act requiring the performance of ��100
worth of assessment work upon loco-
tions witbiu the year. It is asked
that tho rule for (>0 days grace he applied to this section ns well. It was
pointed out that a miner might locate;

SERIOUS POSITION IN ALASKA
A Itar-patoh From dipt. Roy to tho
li. s. Government���Law and Ont or
Being Disregarded*
Capt. P. H. Ray, of Fort Yukon, recommends that the United States Government take steps effectually to check
immigration to tho interior of Alaska
of all persons not full)' supplied to last
two years. He gives ns a reason that
thero is no way of earning a living,
and no placer discoveries havo been
mado within the last eight months
eithrr iu Alaska or tho North West
Territories,
There is no employment for any
large number of people in any capacity.
All values are speculative. There is
no fixed standard for labor. There is
not now or likely to be within 12
months adequate or efficient means of
supplying the people now in Alaska or
the North West Territories. He is of
opinion that only seven per cent of all
the peopio who have entered during
tho past year havo earned their living,
and hundreds are now scattered along
tho rivers destitute of food, clothing
and money. People coming in have
not hnd the faintest, conception what
to do to earn a living and, spending
the money they bring, become dazed

Of the subjects mentioned in the
Speech from tl.o Throne the Stickine
Railway matter commands most attention. Public opinion is deeply stirred over 'he concessions granted by
the Government to Mackenzie A Mann.
The members of Parliament from
Manitoba and the Territories are practically a unit iu their opposition to the
monopoly clnuse, and will strenuously
insist upon its being modified.
Tbe announcement of tile 10 year
monopoly in Yukon traffic to Mackenzie
it Mann has lead to tho withdrawal of
many applications for Yukon railway
legislation, the total of which was 32,
A vast amount of money has been
spent in lawyer's fees, advon isirig. etc.,
and possibly Parliament will be asked
to reimburse tho applicants. Some syndicates, notably the Rothschilds-*,
which want to build via D.ilion trail,
will make a bold bid for their legislation
Hon, G. E. Foster ha* given notice
for detail* of the fast Atlantic service,
anil also for full particulars respecting
gold dredging rights given to parties
in tho North West.
A bombshell was exploded by the
announcement of the Government's de-
terminal ion to investigate every subsidy granted to the Diuinmond Cou ty
railway and every transaction connected with the acqoirenien1 of ihe road
by the present Government. Notice is
given by Sir Wilfrid Laurier that he
will move on Monday for a special committee of the House of Commons, with
power to send for persons, papers and
records. Sir Adoiobe Oarou and Hon.
W. B. Ives are said to be certain to tie
deeply involved by the revelations.
Mr. Jameson, M. P. for Winnipeg,
has given notice of his promised resolution for a railway com mission,
and Intends pushing tbe same to a
conclusion.
On February Hth Hon. Mr. Blair introduced his Kailway Bill in the
House. He made a long speech, showing that if the Government did ��� ot '���������'
it would ba guilty of incompetency
and deserving of - io censure of the
people. While the Government hud

Messrs, Mackenzie and Mann were the
only ones who it met able to do the

Mr. Foster put several questions,
showing that trade would be hampered
by Ihe United States at Fort Wrangel,
Hon. Mr. Haggart characterised tho
bargain as monstrous. The Government was giving one-half ol the gold
bearing territory awny.
Mr. Clarke Wallance opposed the
contract. He said that the Company
would make $20,0U0.G00 out of freight
and passengers during the  first   year.

THE CONNACHER ESTATE.
GROSS MISMANAGEMENT
BY SUPREME COURT.
Tho way in which the Connacher
Estate has been managed or rather
mismanaged is a disgrace to all connected with it and particularly the
Supremo Court of British Columbia.
The principal asset in the estate was
the Kootenay House, Golden, with
the furniture and stock. Several of the
business people of Golden were creditors to a considerable amount, and the
course taken by any business man
would naturally bo to dispose of the
assets at the earliest opportunity, pay
the liabilities, and hand over the balance if any to the next of kin entitled
to receive it. Instead of this, however,
we are informed the property was dealt
with in 'Jiieh u ridiculous way that
no rental was payablo. Then after
this condition of things had dragged
on for 11 bout a year it was sold by
public tender through the Supreme
Court Tho tender which was accepted
required, it appears, that a good and
I valid title should be given for
the whole of the ground covered
by the building ��� a condi
tion which it was utterly impossible
for the estate to fulfil as it had no
such title to give. Tho building is
said to bo in part on two streets and
also on tho adjoining lot. Any luisi-
I uess man would have known that
j ho coul 1 undertake to sell only
such title as he had got and
as a matter of fact offers wero
received for the property to take
the title as it stood, ono of which
should have been accepted and the   es-

your part of the country in the near
future, t am anxious to hnd out certain things about which I can get no
information here, and would appreciate
it very much if you would answer a
few questions to the best of your
knowledge.
If a party of us Minneapolitans
should come to Donald could we get
down the Columbia River from there
in row boats, o^' are thero too many
rapids and canyons? Is the fishing
and hunting good, aud what kind of
game and wild animals ate to be found
along and in tho vicinity of the Great
Bend?
Is there supposed to be much gold in
that nart of the country?
Could we buy row boats thore and
tents and other supplies, or should we
ship them from here?
Wo would want good serviceable
boats, quite largo, that would carry at
least four persons and supplies. Is
the river narrow or wide, and does it-
flow through gorges and canyons or
generally through a wooded valley?
About what time in tho spring does
tho snow and ice break up?
Are thero any settlements along the
river from Donald to tbe Bend, or is it
a wild, unsettled region?
Any information you can   give   or
newspapers   that you  could  mail me
will  be greatly appreciated.    Hoping
to hear from you soon, I am,
Yours very truly,
J. F. Richards,

DEAR Slit,��� In reply to your enquiry
regarding my knowledge of the Dyke
Cure for Intemperance, I have to say
that it was brought under my notice
about a yoar ago, and I specially interested myself in a number of cases
that were treated by it. In some of them
tbe results were remarkable, several
parties who were confirmed inebriates
becomingentirely changed and remaining till tbe present time sober and useful citizens. Several other parties
treated at the same time I have lost
sight of, but do not oersonnlly know
of a case out of a half a dozen in which
the treatment was not successful.
With best wishes I remain.
Yours sincerely.

Interesting Notes for
the Ladies.
Success   In   Dyeing;   Means  Pleasure
and Profit.
Beware of crude and worthless imitations of Diamond Dyes. See that
your dealer gives you the "Diamond"
whan you ask for them.
Diamond Dyes have a world wide
reputation; their work is of the highest order, and their success is deserved.
There are 48 colors in the Diamond
Dyes for dyeing wool and cotton
goods; each die is perfectly true to
color, and as reliable as pure gold.
Diamond Dyes color anything any
color. They are fast to soap, washing
and nun. an 1 surpass all others in
br'lliancy.
Diamond Dyes are the strongest
dyes made, hence the cheapest, one
package is equal to three of any other
make.
Never be deceived by the false claims
of imitators of Diamond Dyes. If
your merchant asks you to accept another make of dyes, be sure he it after
large profits, and never thinks of your
comfort and success.

Wells & Richardson Co.,
Dear Sirs:-For the past15 yoars I
have been troubled witli diseased kidneys. I am engaged in the manufacture
of cheese and am obliged to work more
or lesa in a stooping posture. At times
I found it almost impossible to work
owing to severe pains across my kidneys. Often, after working in a stooping position for a time, I would find it
very difficult to straighten up at once,
and could only do so after repeated
efforts.
Of late years while laboring under
these severe attacks, I became very
nervous, and continually had tired,
worn out feelings. My rest at night
seemed to do me no good, and I always felt tired in the morning.
I had been taking various medicines
and was getting worso all the time.
At last I decided to give Paine's Celery Compound a trial. I procured a bottle and took it according to directions,
and found its effect wonderful. Before
I had used the first bottle I began to
improve; after I had used the second
bottle I felt as well us ever I did in my I
life. It had banished all aches and
pains, my nervousness was all gone,
and the tired and worn out feelings
were banished. I can go to betf now
und sleep well, and rise in the morning rested and refreshed,
I have recommended Paine's Celery
Compound to my friends who were
suffering from, tbe same troubles as   I

Of
Attractive Woman.
Why is one woman attractive and
another not? The most admirable and
tttractire thing about an attractive
women is her womanliness. Everybody admires a womanly woman. Sho
must have health, of course, because
without it she would lose the brightness of her eyes, the fullness of her
cheeks and her vivacity. Heal health
must mean that a woman is really a
woman. That she is strong and perfect in a sexual way, as well as iu every
other. That she is capable of performing perfectly the duties of maternity.
Horn* are born with what is called
"constitutional weakness." Those
who do not enjoy perfect health, need
only take the proper precautions and
the proper remedy to become perfectly
* weU and strong. Dr. Pierce'g Favorite

A late London cable says: It is apparent now thnt Germany has deserted
Russia, and that tho Kais.r takes the
side of England and Japan, The Russians hate the Germans, nure bitterly
than any other foreigner, and in the
sumo way, the Germans, especially in
the eastern provinces, aro more bitter
in their sentiment towards Russians
than they are toward tho French.
This is due largely io the memories of
cruellies and the rapines perpetratod
by Russian troops during thfi past.

Tho Winnipeg printers have resolved: 'That we protest against the
prevalent practice of business houses
of sending to the east for their printing and stationery supplies. "Wo consider the practice unpatriotic, and detrimental to our growth nnd general
Interests, depriving, as ft does, a largo
number of employment and permanent
residence, besides being unnecessary."
Some of tbe business pcr.ple of Goldon
who send their printing orders east
might lay the above to heart. What
sort of a town would Golden be if the
people sent east for stores and supplies
which they can get just as well in tho
j own?

Interest to thousands of Canadians,
Rev. Mr, Elliott says ho feels it his
duty lo tell of the medicine that cured

"good will to men" could induce him
to allow his name to bo published in
this connection. Tho testimonial is
entirely unsolicited.
"I Buttered so soveroly from Lame
Back that I could not tnm, nor get
out of my bed. I began using Dodct'r
Kidney Pills, and my pains and lameness soon disappeared. I consider
Dodd's Kidney Pills a good, honest,
reliable medicine for the diseases they
arc recommended for."
These are Mr, Elliott's own words,
and such is tho result every timo
Dodd's Kidney Pills are used. Any
person who suffers from Bright's Disease, Diabetes, or any other Kidney
Trouble, after having the assurance of
such a worthy and eminent clergyman
as Rev. Mr. Elliott, deserves no pity.
The euro is within easy reach, and if
they refuse to stretch out a hand to
grasp it, no one can be blamed but
themselves.

permanently cure Lumbago, Dropsy,
Paralysis, Heart Disease, Gout, Sciatica, Gravel, Stone in Bladder. Female
