WmK. Bennett, foreman on Govern

men asked (or their time, intimating
that thoy had to get out of the country
a. they expected someone would aqueal
on tbem In connection with the tlyna'
mite explosion at tbeChinese Laundry.
Bennett discharged them and had not
aten the prisoner until about a month

ol an oath explained to him, in hi.

sleeping in an upper room something
awakened him an I ho jumped out ol

wu all.ma.hed and that thru Chinamen were injured as a result of the
"blow np."

to be tried by jury in Golden at the
next sitting of a competent court.
Thos. O'Brien conducted the prosecution.

If further evidence of tbe superiority
of the Golden Tele Jeaune Cache route
over all others word wanting mention
may be made that all the machinery
for tbe mica mines is being taken in
via tbe abovo route. Already there is
a consignment ol steam drills at Bea
verawaitiagtbeespeningof navigation-
Therefore, at a time when, the boat way
to reach the vast northern mineral
fields is a matter of paramount consideration, we unhesitatingly affirm lhat
there is no ploos; that offers tho facilities forreiichini; thut fi-tltl that Golden
does. The iase Dr. Dawson, than
wlsoiu no man was more convcr
snot with this route, rejsortel Ihn.
.lie only practical route for arsiil.v.y
was via th. Columbia vall.y and Canoe
river. By this route these is uo moun*
sa'n divide to cross nnd, us stated Iu
.previous article, the wny is inter
sprrscd with good feeding grounds'
which makes It so desirable in tbo use
ol puck animals. Golden being at the
intersecting point of tl.e C. P. R. for
this natural high wny north and south,
also as a centre of Columbia river navl
gallon, there remains no choice other
lhat. it for the transhipment ol freight
to Tete Jeanne Cache and tlie great
lone laud beyond.
Dr. Dawson in his report (ays: 'I
requires seventeen to twenty days to
reach Tele Jeaune Cache from Kan.
loops, a distance ol 215 miles. From
Edmonton to the Cache, a distance of
about .150 milea, requires ordinarily
twenty-five days, but it. a vory favorable season the distance might be coy
red in twenty days." When Ihe
journey may bo made in nine days
from lho Caohe to Donnld. o. It wns
by Mr. F. Halliday and party, the
reasons aro so obvious for the selection
of th. Golden-Cache route thai further
comment i. unnecessary. Of com*
other towns and points will compete
for the business of forwarding and
���upj.Iying the northern camps to be
formed in th. development of the mica
mines at the Cache, but Oolden has
nothing lo fear from the advocacy of
spurious claims aa to tht advantages
of rival route..
We publish tbis article with a view
to aet before tho public the only real
highway to Tele Jeaus.e Cache country,

reallard pretty fnlly what tho Interview
n.citrit not only to the paper, bnt to my
'Own future prospects, and as I hurried
toward tbe residential section I determined to mnke Thompson talk or perish
In the attempt.
"I found his house without much dllli-
pulty���it wan a dark, gloomy looking man*
-*ii.n In a <iulct aide -street���and was nbout
to put! the bell ^hen the door opened sudden Iy and n man appeared on tbe threshold, Ho had on his bat and overcoat,
ond, while I bod never met the lawyer,
his general appearnnee was -about wbat 1
had expected. Wc both started back In
surprise, but he wns .the first to recover
jilinsel*.' 'Whai do yon want? be nsked.
'I'm n reporter for The -���,' 1 replied,
'and I presume you nre Mr. Thompson.'
'I amt1 he-said curtly, 'and 1 nsk yon
again what you want V That was n bad
beginning, and I hastened to tell him
briefly the nature of my errand. 'H-m-m,'
be grunted, stepping outside and closing
the door. This is a most unearthly hour
to disturb a mnn fo: on Interview.' 'Uut
you seem'about to go ont, sir,' 1 suggest*
ed. 'Perhaps you will let me accompany
you a little way and talk as we go.' 'I
was going to propose It/ be replied, 'My
wife Is sick, and I bare been sitting up
with ber. In fact, I was on the, point of
���olng ont for a short walk and some fresh
ir wben yon came.'
"I wris overjoyed at this lucky turn of
events," continued tbe story teller, "and
as we walked together up tlie street I
proceeded to sound him as to his contemplated onslaught on the police foroe. He
was brnsqup and reticent at fint. but
presently he warmed to the subject nnd.
h'-gnn to talk In a way that promised ���
muling good article.
" 'The only police protection we bave la
the city at present.' be said, 'Is the protection given to lawbreakers'nt r much
a month, and the citiaen and taxpayer
hnve to look out for themselves. It Is
mere chance nnd luck' that keep my residence In town frbm being looted. If the
police made a determined effort to stop
burglaries, they would shut off tbe revenue of tbe very gentlemen who arc helping to buy tbem bread* and meat and
chnmpagne.' He rambled on In thia vivacious vein, denounclug tbe chief aa a
fat beaded Incompetent and characterising the detectives aa a lot of blackmailing
Imbeciles until I was really obliged to pnt
on the brakes for fear I wonld be too
lute witb my'copy.'
"I thanked him heartily for tbe Inter
view, which was. In (act, a mere'mono-
logue, bade him good night on tbe next
corner'and sprinted back to tbe office at
Ibe top of mynpocd. I dashed ap the stairs
fonr steps nt a time, grabbed a pad of pa*
per nnd began lo write like mad. When
the^city editor glanced over tbe fint few
pages, his eyes stuck out of their sockets. 'Why, this Is the hottest stuff on record!' be exclaimed, i never knew Thomp-
sun to turn loose In any such style! Are
you an re yon are quoting him correctly T
'Dead certnin,' I replied, 'I was surprised at him myself and took particular
pains to fix his exact expressions on my
mind.' 'All right, then/ aald the city editor, grinning. 'We'll doable lead this! It
wtll wake up tbe town.'
"My story, as aearly aa I rnoember.
covered about a colnnin, and wben I went
home after turning In tbe last sheets 1
had a pleasant premonition tbat the
night's work wonld make me peculiarly
.solid with Ihe pnper. I got up lo a happy frame of mind next morning and went
to the office somewhat earlier tban usual,

Mr. W. iD'Ealrvmont, a well known
farmer living at Wont Pubuico, N. S.,
writes ; "1 believe it is only right
tbat I should let you know lhe benefit your medicine ��� Dr. Williams'
Fink Fills��� have been to my son,
Constant, sixteen years of age. For
several years he was almost a constant invalid, the result of un Injury
to his spine while working with his
brothers on the farm. He grow weak
and listless, hud no appetite, and for
two years was unable to work und
was for the moBt of the time confined to tho house, aud for a part of
the time to his bed. Ue suffered considerably from pains in the back;
his legs were weak, and hu had frequent headaches. At ditiymit times
he was attended by two doctors, but
got no benefit from the treatment.
Then I procured an electric belt for
him, but it was simply money wasted as it did not do him a particle of
good. One day while my son was
reading a newspaper he came across
an artlclo telling of a cure in a somewhat similar case through the use of
Dr. Williams' Fink Fills, and ha then
derided to give them a trial. After
the second box was taken there was
a marked improvement in his condition. Ue continued the use of the
pills until he bad taken eight boxes,
and they have restored him to health-
His appetite han returned; the pain
hus left his back; he has gained flesh;
is able to ride a bicycle, enjoys life
and is able to do a day's work us
well as any one of his age. This letter is given gladly so that others
may learn the merits of Ur. Williams'
Fink Fills,-and find a cure if ailing."
Ur. Williams' Fink Fills cure such
cases as the ono noted above because
they create new, rich, red blood, thus
strengthening weak and shattered
nerves. They do not purge and weaken like other medicines, but strengthen from tho   first    dose to tlie lost.

Mrv. lhe masses in preference to ihe
railway charter monger* that infest
the Dominion assd B.C. in particular.
W. .llud. to thi application of thr
British Columbia Southern Kailway to
have an esteusiou of five yeisrs added
to Iti already ample time for thi con*
���truction of th. road. Th. Hob. Mr.
Blair took a business Ilka rlaw of th.
application, and gavt th.m one year in
whleh to bsglu actual construction
othorwise thi company would forfeit
its charter.   The line from Golden to

to reap a value created by the people,
without any industry on thoir part
whatever, and It I. only fair that the
value created by the public sliould be
titled in their Intereat, In tome place,
tlse tax will prove a great burden lo
workingmen, for in addition to the t-
poll tax a -supplementary civic tax of $2

Mr. Martin said he waa opposed to
the resolution, because it de.lt witb
natter, not within the juri.dicfion ol

tion of a duty on lumber would beneflt
th. manufacturer, but operate to the

Mr. Martin -noved the second reading
ot the Legal Professions Bill, which be
explained gave lawyer, the power lo
mnke bargain, wish their client, in
regard to litigation. At preaent, he
���aid, no lawyer waa allowed to have
any intereat In any litigation outside

especially a mining country, it often
accural that a lawyer waa asked to
