At   the   meeting of the Miner'* Association en   Tuesday   week   a   lii.-l
tribute was paid to Ihe work which T
Hebsen   has   done in the district as a
prospector.   Mr. Hebsei has   been   a
work all winter on the claims in whirl
he   is interested at Ottertail.    He has
now got the tunnel on tbe Hercules in
a distance of 210 feet, having driven it
77   feet this wituer.    On the Phoenix
claim he put down a shaft on the lend

His claims are about nine miles from

claims. The latter is the claim on I
which development whs curried out all j
summer under the supervision of F.
Bertliuiio, who had bonded the claims
to the Company. j
We are informed on gjod authority
ihat T. MeNaiight. formerly cf Gold*!,
ami Fori Steele, has succeeded in rioat-
mg in Scotland a company to work
the Golden and Fort Steele Company's
mine on the Bugaboo, in which T.
Mercier ia interested. If the work goes
ahead a* anticipated Bugaboo will become an important camp. The Eug
lish company, who purchased the pro
perly there in which Dr. Lnngis and
Mr. Mercier were inten srod. also ill-
tend getting to work, and the coming
season should thus see the opening of
regular shipments of ore down th
Columbia rirer from Bugaboo. The
Navigation Company intend to mnk
liberal provision to encourage this
trado and development of tha mint's hi
building ore scows as soon as trade
warrants it,and by carrying the ore to
Golden at from (1 to ii nil per ton.
Arrangements will also be made to
save handling by the transfer of ihe
ore over Hie Lumber Co's tramway to
the C. P. H. station.
Referring to the annual report of the
Minister of Mines a correspondent of
the Fort Steele Prospector says: "I'
merits the contempt aud scorn of nil
those interested in mining. If Col
Baker takes so little interest in this
district and its mineral developnteni
himself, tho least he could do would lit
to get au unbiased report from some
person of standing in the district
whereby justice might be done and
external interest diucted to this sec
tion. The of'eurr one reads the ro
port the less one likis it. Tim total
elimination of the northern part of tin
district is, to say the least of it insidious (it might even be culled
criminal), and although South
em East Kootenay is mentioned, ii
might just ns well be left out, ns nine
tenths of the facts are omittod, and ii
the other tenth a great deal is left to
the imagination."

'hut the proper route* for u railway tu
open up the interior was along the
Columbia and Canon Rivers, while Mr.
Gosnell, who hns already been quote.i
iu these articles, goes so far hs to siu
that: ��� '��� The railway of the futitie is

This is a hold prophecv. and the
contemplation of its fulfilment carries
is far into the future. Yet- it indicates

to the nntural advantages of tbe gietit

for the people to consider whether it
isofany value to tho nation, ami
whether it should not be abolished
as having outgrown its usefulness. At
the last Dominion elections the Libera I
party ivere returned to power by u
large majority. They therefore became
the party to which tho rem* of Gov-
ernment should he entrusted, as being
responsible 0 the peoi le, With tho
voice of the country on their side,
thoy have therefore n right to expect
fnirphiy for their policy and admlnis
trillion, and that their policy shall not
be blocked by an abuse of its power
by tho Sonato nt tho instance of tho
minority conservative party in the
Commons. Much us we condemn the
Yukon bill tho Senate had no right,
f.'OIll a constitutional point of view, lo
set its faco ugain-.t the policy of tho
Government in such a vital matter.
and having dono so it becomes the
duty ol tho Government to devise
melius for the reform or': abolition of
tho Semite, bo that it shall' not stand
any longer in tho way of the will of
the people. Some oiiiorprislng Americans from San F-ailolsco went to
Ottawa anil addressed the S.-nato in
the internals of the American coast
Cities, The result was lhat thoy wero
able to buy and s II thnt august body
of Imbecile's to throw out the Government bill, und now lhey iho delilior-
u'ting on a bill to givo uncle Sum sole
control of   the   Canadian   Yukon   as
effectually as if it belonged to him. In
liscussiug the proceedings of this
C-nniuitteH of bond slaves, one of the
imbeciles, Senator MiicC'allum by
n une, gave expression to these extraordinary sentiments: ���
" What use luue we for the press,"
hi said, "they have no use forthe sen
ate, Tney take uo nute of our pro
oeodiugS, Why, they would go so fains to abolish the s -mire. What reason
have wo to belie.e that they will take
any noiico of iho present com
inittee." When the legislutio,
of the country is nt iiu
mercy of men whoso nets aro mon
like those of a drivelling idiot, it is
pntry clear lhat it was time tin's
house of "Old Women" was abolished
and tl.e interests of the coun ry on
trusted to men of youth and vigor o
mind. When u second chamber adopt-
tiie measures of ihu Govei'iimeii it is

to soon add to its b.ittlecry ''Dow.

Cftuld not eat or sleep. I coul not lie

wits only bv re-linn on elbows and

degree of ease. Before I bad fully taken one hoi tie of your medicine I bewail
lo improve. I have now taken in all
fourteen ho.ttles with urand results I
