Tliere is ono instance in this town that
exemplifies this to a degree. In fact
its nothing more than the stronger

Ladies and gentlemen, be alive to
your own interest. There has recently
been discovered, and is now for sale by
the undersigned, a truly wonderful
"Hair Grower" and "Complexion
Whitening." This "Hair Grower" will
actually grow hair on a bald head in
six weeks by the use of this wonderful
"Hair Grower." It will also prevent
the hair from falling. By the use of
this excellent remedy boys raise an excellent moustache iu six weeks, Ladies
if you want a surprising head of hair,
have it immediately bv 'he use of this
"Hair Grower." We also sell a "Complexion Whitening" that will in one
mouth's time muke you as clear and
whitens tho skin can be made. We
never knew a lady or gentleman to use
for a year or two but the lots I two bottles of "Whitening," for they
were never offered lor sale, and for | all suy that before tbey finished the

Only a few days since I, as editor
of the Golden Eua was "called down"
so to speak, in Western parlance, for
making a "positive assertion" in these
columns about the tax, that tax which
affects nearly all of us. The gentleman said he had, nc it wus he was
nearly coming 100 miles on purpose to
correct, tne. saying he could not write
but he could talk But seriously I am
glad that I interviewed him on the
subject, though at the time I wns
slightly under a disndvantnge, not remembering the exnet words I had used
whereas he seemed to remember them,
and this fact quite flattered my vanity
thinking previously that nr one
thought sufficiently well of the opinions expressed in the Golden Eua to
have committed the sentences to memory. Now the grievance was this. I
said in the number anted April 25th
the following:
"It is certainly an injustice to force
the miner to pay an additional S."> to
work in a mine. Beforo a man can
locate, hold, ordeal in a milling property he should, and most right'*- too,
bo made to pay this tux, for my part I
would rather see a double tax placed
upon such men than to see thc miner
taxed a cent for the privilege of working for his bread. It is tbe option ol
any to meddle in mining but a man
must work lor his living und its unfair to burden optional and compulsory actions alike. Besides it casts a
cloud over the mining industry which
it has no right to do.
"I should like to suguest to the Executive Committee of the B.C. Minors
Association that they would be conferring a great bei.efit on East Kootenay if they could accomplish this end
I should like also to propose that the
fee be made $10 for all persons locating
holding or dealing in mining properties in the Province, but thut miners
should be free to work in mines which
they have no interest in."
When writing the above I must j
acknowledge that I had not East Koote-1
nay particularized iu my mind and I
that I wrote what I thought about the
matter. I for my part would much !
rather pay $10 for a free miner's certi-
cate and see the miner who is working
in the mine free, than the present
sta'e of things. As to this plan conferring a benefit ou East Kootenay, I
must again acknowledge thnt I am
wrong, for the fact that I am premature iu my remnrks. At present 'bete
nre many more locators ol claims than
actual working miners, or if preferred
most of them have claims in some
part of tho province. But this will
not exist long. The couatrv bus nor
yet got n start and as soon as
it does start, and not till then wil! the
aaid benefit be conferred. I must
apologize for getting a little ahead of
hnd made
' application for tlie same land lor a depot site. Of course we all understand
how the thing runs. Our poor settlors have to "get off there," and if
"I guess not," well we shall have to
see about putting you off. To resort
to law iu the mutter would be folly,
and would only ndd to your loses.
Now whose fault is it thut the bind
hus become so nnd so. It is without
doubt the Government's. Why did
they not see that the land was not
taken up before thev disposed of it
again, Lot tlie C.P.R. have it by all
means if tbey want it, in fact there is
little use in trying to prevent tliein,
but the Government should see tbat
the citizens are protected, in fact get
their rights, and in this case they
have certainly neglected their duty.
Mr. L. H. Estelle, an old and much
respected citizen of Golden, built a
large bouse on one of the lots of the
former town siie of Golden, and these
lots acknowledged to bs open. Ho made
application to buy if, got no satisfactory itiformiilion when it woulil be
open for sale, and is now ordered to
"get off there." Bv who? The C.P.
R. of course. Now I think most of
tlie citizens hero will join with ine in
saying that this is an injustice to our
follow citizen and that something
should be done to put the matter right
He, after going on in good faith, is
suddenly deprived of his expectations
or in otlier words the lot if his in
deed would be worth $1,000. Now I
suy ngiiiti that the Government should
as in duty bound, either allow him to
buy bis lot and give him a deed or
compensate hiin for his loss, for certainly his loss was occasioned by tbem
this I think is only fair. Mr. Mara

to examine a mine and was particular
to select all the samples of quartz with

adroitly sprinkled some flour gold over
them. The assay went so high that
the mine was bought and the machinery oidered, but at lust one of the men

The split between the Liberals and
the Irish members in the British House
of Commons has been tbe absorbing
feature of foreign news during the
past week. The Liberals are bitter
against the Irish for supporting the
Government on the Education Bill and
say it is a gruat blow to Home Rule
for it has alienated from it the non-
Conformists. This break will post-

The Colonist goes out of it's way to
say : "',Ve huve no reason to believe
that Mr. Bostock is not an honorable

last Saturday's issue, but it was only
a few days previously that the Colonist opened its columns to Home-Payne
to make one of the most contemptible
insinuations against Mr. Bostock's
reputation in the old conntry that we
ever read. The Colonist'.-, reparation

the International gold mine, which is

not yet decided what character of

say on the subject, but as a corollary
they bring out, "which goes to prove
there never will be, elso tbey would
have been found.*' My dear friend
Ihey hnve been found, they have not
been worked is true enough, but there
are extenuating circumstances. Thero
might havo been other causes heretofore, but at the present time, want of
capital is preponileratory one. There
was a time I believe, at least thu old

that capital was no object, and everybody who had u surface prospect could
