parts of tbe district of the most promising kind. The doctor reached East
Kootenay via Spokane and the Kootenav any Columbia rivers. He spent
tome timo In the southren part of this
district visiting the prospective cities
ot Wardner, Sifton City, Cranbrook
and Fort Steele. In hie opinion Sifton
City is tbe most promising of these
sites aa a spot for a smelter, being
most ceatf kliy located regarding the
mines al present in operation and having plenty of water for all purposes,
whioh the other places lack. He
visited several of tha mines in operation such as the North Star, the St.
Eugene aad others and thinks that as
soon as the Crow's Nest line Is completed the results from theee mines
will rival thoas of the west distriot.
The doctor le intir-eiii In tbe Snilll-
maobene valley but was unable to visit
bis properties'this trip. He is, how-
returning In a week or 10 daya,
when he will visit the mines on that
river and make preparations to begin
work on his claims, if not tbis season
at lesst on Us opening up next spring.
He thinks Oolden admirably situated
to secure the whole trade of northern
Eaat Kootenay, of the mineral wealth
of which he has heard and believes In
so confidently. The doctor is interested in mines tn every distriot ot
British Columbia and Is satisfied tbat
the results will justify his faith in the
mineral wealth of the province as soon
aa communicative lines can be opened
up permitting ore to be ebipped at reasonable rates. Dr. Lefevre says that
tba fertile valley between tha Selkirk
and Rocky mountains should oiler an
inviting field to cultivators of the soil
ae the indications are that in the near
future the mineral wealth of the hills
will attract thousands of consumers ot
the agricultural products whioh oan
be grown in the valley.

On Monday afternoon a most de*
plorable accident happened in the station yards at Donald by whioh the
yardmaster, Archibald Smith, a former Torontonlan, lost his life by having bis foot caught between a guard
and main rail and before he could extricate it he wu struck by a shunting
train and 14 cars passed over his body,
which was frightfully mangled. The
unfortunate man, wbo wu formerly
a conductor on the 0. T. R. in Ontario, and who had only been in Donald a couple of monthe, leaves a wife.
and four children to mourn his loss,
The body of the deceased, who waa
Insured in the Trainmen's Order, waa
taken charge of by his brother Qdii*
fellows at Donald and shipped to his'
family, who reside at Toronto Junction. An inquest wu bald on Tuesday
and although tbe switches were under
repair nevertheless it wu thought by
the coroner that tba company should
have bad tba necessary blocks in place
to protect against accidents of this
kind, aad a censure wu placed upon
the C. P. B. for lack of caution.
Freight Conductor Bison, who runs
on the Pacific division, bad the mis*,
fortune one day thia week to lose all
the fingers and part of ths thumb of
his left hand while coupling oars west

FRIDAY,  AUGUST 18,  1897.
A special feature of
our business.
We havo received from Mr. Semlin,
chairman of tbe Opposition party in
the B. C. Provincial Parliament, a
circular issued by the party. The
programme proposed is a redistribution
of representation, reorganisation of
the civil service, vigorous and effective
prosecution of publio works, discouragement of Chinese immigration, res
vation of coal lands in the same way
| as other minerals; timber to be disposed of by open competition and in
such quantities u the trade demands;
agricultural lands to bs reserved for
actual settlers; repeal of the mortgage
tax; amendment.of the law in regard
to free miners' licenses, so that a man
shall not be compelled to take out a
free miners' license before be oan work
in a mine for wages; provincial aid to
railways in the put having resulted
unsatisfactorily, both u regards eeon.

provincial control both of the raising

We notice in tbe United States
newspapers that, there is considerable
less talk now of pressing tbeir alien
labor law into effect against Canadians. Have they at lut realised
that "What's sauce for the goose la
sauce for the gander?" The thrust
given tbem by the C.P.R. on the
Crow's Nest Road in retaliation in
refusing to employ Americans, and
still later tbe Imposing uf doty on
American goods going into the Clon*
dike, seems to have struck home.
With such districts in Csnada u the
Clondike, the Cariboo, Slocan, and
East and West Kootenay, to which
the Americans are now rushing, we
surely ought to "do onto others
tbey would do unto us."

There wu considerbile oommotlon
among the Chinese population of Oolden on Sunday afternoon, and on
enquiry being made ft was learned
that a Chinaman had been accused of
stealing 140 from one "of his kin���
hence the rumpus.
After much tongue thruhing and
ki-hi-wa-ing tt wu decided by the
Celestials that tbe fracas should be
settled according to the customs of
China, and accordingly the acoused,
Lee Qee, accusor Wong Gin, and
Crown Prosecutor Wong Ping, repaired to the cemetery, provided with
tbe following artioles: One ohicksn,
one butcher knife, two wax tapers,
several small Chinese candles, and a
silver coin. j
An Era representative, on being
informed that blood wu to be split,
Immediately borrowed a bioycle, procured a crack pace-maker, and started
for the cemetery at a break-neck gate,
arriving there in time to witness the
trial, which was u follows: The
tapers and candles were lighted and
planted in a semi-circle at one end of a
grave; the prosecutor then tied the
chicken's legs, and placing it and the
coin before the burning tapers ordered
the trial to proceed. The accusor then
came forward, and aftfer taking the
oath, which ie accomplished by per
forming a devotional exercise before
the tribunal of justice, got on his
knees and tried to convince tbe Chinese deity that Lee Qee Was a bad man
aud should be suspended bv the cue to
the tallest available tree for having
catch'-- hie 40 dollee. Lee Qee then
took the oath and gave evidence in hia
defence, protesting his innocence and
explaining that he thought some lats
oatoh'em Wong Gin's 40 dollee, allee
ssmes. He then arose from hia knees,
seized the ohicken and bntoher knife,
and having severed the chicken's head
amid many exclamations from his
countrymen, he pocketed the piece of
silver and left for town, thinking no
donbt tbat he catch'em pretty good
t'lng and play Chines game some more.
A bystander then uked Wong Ping,
the prosecutor, why he did not kill the
chicken and put it out of ita misery,
but that personage exclaimed; "Let
chicken die; Lee Qee die allee samee
chicken. He cate_'em hellee, you bet"
We would riot advise the law makers
of Canada to copy tho Chinese system,
u if they did chickens would become
a very scarce article. McKinley would
raise the dnty on importations from
the statea, and u a consequence all
our "golden eggs" would be batched in
Uncle Sam's treasury vaults, which
would bs giving him too big a corner
on the wealth of B.C. and the

Miss Amlna Kelly, a well-known
and much-esteemed young lady living
at Haplewood, N.B., writes:���"I eon
elder it my duty to let yon know what
yonr wonderful-medicine has done for
me. In April,, 1896, I began to lose
flesh and color, my appetite failed, and
on going upstairs I would be so tired
I wonld have to rest. I continued in
thie condition for three months, when
I wu suddenly taken ill and not able
to go about. Our family doctor was
called in and he pronounced my Illness
chlorosis (poverty ot the blood.) At
first hie treatment appeared to do' me
good, bnt only for a time, and I then
began to grow worse. I continued
taking hia medicine for three months,
when I wu eo discouraged at not regaining my health tbat I declined
taking it any longer. I then tried a
liquid medioine advertised to euro
cases like mine, but did not obtain the
slightest benefit. I had become terribly
emaciated and Weak; there wu a constant terrible roaring noise in my head;
my feet and ankles were swollen, and
I wu u pale u a oorpee. One day
while in this oondltlon my father
brought home a box of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pllle and uked me to try then,
In lees than a week I could elt up, aad
in a couple of weeks I oould walk quite
a distance without being tired. My
appetite returned, the roaring in my
head ceased, I began to gain fleah and
color and below I had need a half
doxen boxes I wu u healthy as I had
aver been in my life. My friends did
not expect me to recover, and are now
rejoicing at the wonderful change Dt,
Williams' Pink Pllle have wrought b
me. If my statement will be tht
meana of helping somo other discouraged sufferer yoa are at perfect liberty
to publish it."
The above statement wu sworn before me at Maplewood, York Co., N.B.,
this Hth day of May. 1897.

A   Remarket.-.   Care   of   Chronic

any permanent relief. Not long ago a

bought and took a 60 oent bottle, and

making an Interesting experiment in
tbe growing of Kafir eon. It ia
somewhat like maixe in appearance,
but hardy. It ia a valuable forage
plant. Mr. Ooldle's Idea it to

widely grown by the ranchers af the
Columbia Valley.

considerable amount of suspicion.
A Windermere farmer haa resorted
to a novel method of getting a road.
He saya be finds that the Government
will make roads for miners, but not
for ranchers, eo he has located a
mineral claim in the valley where he
wants a road. As the Government
has ao far refused to give bim a road
to bje farm, he will apply lor a toad to
his mine, and is in hopes that be may
get it ao that hit purpose will be served
all the same.
The smart transportation of the
Upper Columbia Navigation Company
has evidently mada the route by Golden
and the Columbia River the favorite
route into Steele. The Dochess has
frequently had large passenger lists of
lata. On Monday last she again took1
21 passengers np the river, and the
trip waa rendered specially pleasant by
a concert on board, the passenger list,
comprising several clever muslolans,
who willingly contributed to the suo-
oess of tbe entertainment.
