ASSESSMENT REGULATIONS
Hon. F. W. Aylmer   Lays   Ills   Views
Before the Miner's Association.
At the meeting of the North Kast
Kootenay Miners' Association on Tuesday evening the president, Hon, F. W,
Ayliner, read tho following paper:���
Genti.bmen, ��� In bringing before
you the question of the abolition of
assessment work on mineral claims, I
quite understand that I am laying myself open to tbe charge of being n
crank, particularly so as at the present time tbe one desire throughout tho
length and breadth of British Columbia seems to be an effort to impose
upon the prospector greater hardships
than thoso already existing.
Such a radical change as I would
submit to you for discussion is ono
that would affect the existing conditions under which the prospector
finds himself to a far greater exlent
than would at first appear, and to
make this clear to you -that is, from
my standpoint���would take me more
time to prrpare to do than I have lately had at my disposal.
Though I propose to merely glance
at a few of the many different ele
ments, as it were, contained in the
proposition, and would first ask to
what can we attribute the origin of
tho penalty now attached to the holding of a mineral claim by a prospector?
I imagine the first quartz mining of
en extensive nature in North America
was done in Mexico, and to tho Moxi-
can, a people even today not remark
able for wise legislation, I believe we
are indebted for the labor imposition
uow upon mineral claims. However,
the Mexican Government made no
grand pretensions about tho object ol
this assessment work, their law simply provided '.hat a hole six feet square
and 10 feet deep should be dug yearly
anywhere upon each minora! claim.
There was not any cry about millions
of hidden treasure lying idle and
charged to the dog-in-the-manger propensities of the prospector us tho custom is today in British Columbia. No,
the Government of Mexico simply recognized the face that the pejn was
naturally averse to useless labor, so it
imposed this penalty as a certain
means by which to prevent tho development of the minor.i! resources of the
country and the acquisition of property
by the people. Such SO years ngo was
the trend of legislation in Mexico and
���uch I believe it to be today ���in British Columbia.
A principle embraced, I imagine, in
all business propositions is that there
shall be value, secured either equal to
or greater than the expenditure. I
would ask, is there any value derived
from the assessment work done ou a
mineral claim? I hold that there is
not, that in 9 cases out of 10 yearly
assessment work is utterly wasted. It
is looked upon by the claim holder as
a mere labor condition attached to the
olaim, and is generally done in ��\ very
prefunctory manner. And I also contend that there are very few clai'us
discovered upon which a small expenditure could bo of any benefit. Our
experience in this district I think has
prcttv effectually proved this.
I would not suggest doing awry altogether with assessment work but
would, rather, leave it optimal witli
the claim holder. I simply hold that
compulsory assessment work is a mistake, and that there can be substituted
therefor conditions net only beneficial
to the claim owner but also to tho
mining interests of the country.
I am satisfied that at first there will
be great difficulty to induce many to
even entertain the idea of doing away
with assessment work���to suggest it
after so many years of existence Almost approaches an attempted act ol
desecration, but still men will gradually come to reason the thing out, then
will surely follow conviction, and al
no far distant day we will look back
and wonder what, ever induced us to
calmly aubmil to anything so ridiculous.
The mining industry as it is called
might be divided into three distinct
branches: Prospecting, developing,
and mineral production, each having
its own allotted work. To compel the
prospector to do development work ���
for such tho yearly assessment work is
sometimes most erroneously sailed - is
deliberately taking him awny from
that whioh he it competent to do
that for which, 99 times in 100, he
has neither time, money nor training.
It is claimed that were it not for
this labor penalty the prospector
would stake the whole country, record
it and let it lie idle. This seems to me
to be a most unreasonable contention
and I am satisfied the average prospector does not undergo the many hardships of his calling merely to acquire
temporary possession of a few actes of
land. But, should he be possessed of
any such mad desire I think there Is a
simple way of weaning him from his
madness���a result not yet secured by
the present Mineral Act.
The above I would submit to you
this evening, proposing to leavo for
some other occasion suggested legislation.
Mr. Ijowo said that under present
conditions then was no doubt there
was* great deal of work thrown
away.
M, Dainard said that in nine  caces
out of 10 the assessment work was   of
no account.
On the motion of Mr. Lowe, it was
resolved that the members consider the
suggestions made in Mr. Aylmers paper
and that the matter bo fully discussed
at next meeting.
ROUND ABOUT THE MINES
Course gold has boen found on Hay
River, which flows into Groat Slave
Lake.
An easy pass through tl.e mountains
has boen found near Fo��t St. John.
This solves the problem of tho feasibility of tho Calgary Edmonton route,
A son of Mr. Knowlton, of Foster.
P. Q., will arrive iu Golden iu a week
or so and will toko charge of the development operations of the Sunday
mine at Oitertail.
The Prospector expects to see several
large placer mining companies working
on tho famous Wild Horse Creek, that
has given many millions in gold to the
world in days past.
Frank Berthune wrote us from Beaver under dale of January 20th: "Wo
arrived hero all safe and found the ico
good for travelling. We will hit the
trail early iu tho morning."
The Prospctor says that the Sullivan Mining Co. will coiiunenco
operations in March. New machinery
will be plueod on the property and a
large number of men will be employed
in taking out ore.
A telegram received from Tomsk,
Russia says that a lump of auriferous
earth containing 74 1-1 pounds of pure
gold lias been found on the gold washing estate in the Mlnusslnsk district. ]
Siberia may beat the Yukon.
Tho North Star Company have late-1
ly increased their force of miners nnd
are taking out ore, Several hundred
tons have been taken to the landing,
The company will put iu machinery
and prnparj for the handling and shipping ol large quantities of ore this
season,
On the St. Eugene the lower tunnel is in 700 fee', anil iho face is showing in solid galena. There is 15,000
Ions of ore on the dump. A mill silo
has been surveyed for a 300 ton con-
oentranr, which will bo put in in tbo
spring, together with a tramway and
road to the mine.
Word comes from down Yukon that
ther is considerable excitement at Cir-
clo City. On nearly all the creeks in
the Birch Creek district mines are being located, and many are locating
mines from which th" owners are
temporarily absent. There is expected
to be many disputes. Tno district is
the largest in area ovor oponed in the
Y'ukon country, nud there was produced last summer over hnlf a million
dollars. There has been a stampede
from Circle City over tho Razor-book I
divide to look for a Croek on I he Tan-1
nanan side, upon which a miner found!
some gold prospects.
Tho Winnipeg Tribune says: "Mr.
Foulds, whoi-e sister is the wife of
Chief Factor Camscll at Fort Simpson,
has received a letter which states that
while several of tho hoys wero excavating for the foundation of n cabin on
the Liard river, where it empties into
tho Mackenzie near Fort Simpson, they
came upon rich deposits of placer gold,
the nuggets being tho size of barley.
This find Indicates that tho placer deposits are not confined to tho western
slope of the Rocky Mountains, but
that fhey oxist on the eastorn slopo as
well, which is most reasonable and
what might be expected."
At tho monthly meeting of the
Miner's Association of North Kaf-t
Kooienay, held at thu t'uhiuthia House
on Tuesday .light, llieio were present:
Hon. F. W. Ayliner, president, iu the
chair, Messrs. M. Dainard, \V, Dainard, J. A. Bates. T. Merrier, ,1. Noble.
0. Cartwright. 11. Loivn, II. Munson,
A. F. Logan, E. A. Hugged, secretory,
and Capt, Baron. As Sufficient members had offered to voluntarily subscribe Jn each towards providing iho
rent of ihe room offered by Mr. McNeish, it was resolved to accept his
offer, aud a reading or club room will
consequently be provided for members.
WAR THREATENED
The Situation Very Serloas--Jnpan U
(letting Keiuly.
London, Feb. 2.���Tho Chinese situation is becoming very serious. Japan
is most actively preparing for war and
Russia is pouring troops into the Orient. Attorney General Webster at a
public dinner yesterday said that the
United States is supporting England
with surprising unanimity. If England is killed in war it will be a quick
and glorious death and not a lingering
extinction by starvation, owing to her
food supplies being stopped.
It is definitely reported that Russia,
Germany and France are preparing for
an attack on Great Britain.
Steamer Corona from Victoria ran
on rock at mouth of Skeena River and
was wrecked. She had 238 passengers
on board but all saved.
TROUBLE THREATENED
III thu Yukon--Excite in :nt ut Cal-
ffar.V"-rht3 Mounted r>iin. Dnder
Order.,
Monday's) Herald says: Considerable excitement was causfd in the
city yesterday afternoon when it be
cinue known that nil the notioomtnie-
aiotioi] officers Am) men of ihe ���'!>" and
'\E" divisions of tho North VVest
Mounted Police at Maoleod and t'ai-
gary reactive y had been ordered to
hold themselves in readiness to proceed
at a moment's notice to the Yukon for
temporary duly. Tho orders which
wero received by wire by the officers
in command of the two divisions arts
Raid to be due to the existent:; of serious M-ouhle between the Couadian and
United States authorites in Alaska relative to tho attempt by the Americans
to Ret provisions into the Yukon freeof
duty ostensibly for the relief of dis
tress, but in reality for salf to the
highest bidder. Tho orders include
non-commissioned officers and men
either at the posts or on   detachment.
The arrival Saturday from   Manieod
of   Major   Steele,   the superintendent
commanding "D'1 division, causedstiil
more excitement when it was   learned
that,  that   officer   had   received   tele-
gtiphic notice of only a few hours,   to
proceed at once to the Coast   for   service in the North.  Majur Steele left nn
the Pacitic express accotnpanio I   only
by his servant, and gave no information as to the cause of his sudden   departure.   It is believed that something
serious has taken pbico or is about   to
take place to necessitate Major Steele'** i
presence.     Ono thing is   certain,   thej
Major will stand no nonsenso when he j
gets on the scene, as the ai who   "uu
up1' against him during  the   rebellion |
know only too well.
Futher   developments   are   awaited

PROTECTING THE TOWN.
Now is the time to tak^ action
with regard to the improvement of the
channel of tbe Kickinghorso so as to
prevent a repetition of the troubles of
the present winter. The work is one in
both the Dominion nnd Provincal
Governments should join, The Dominion Government are liable in that
Golden is a Dominion townsite, aud
his Government are about lo offer
other of their lands here for sale.
Then again tho dredging of the Columbia at aud below its junction with tbe
Kickinghorse must be part of any
scheme having for its object the effectual protection to the town. The Col-
umhia is a navigable river under control of the Dominion Government, and
this work clearly lies within their
province. As to the Provincial Government, the grounds for their (lability
are that the administration of all town
sites, with the exception of municipalities, is within their control,
and the lauds aud property of these
townsitea are subjects of the regular
taxation of the Province. It is the
duty of tbe Provincial Government to
pr itect its taxable property. The better course will he for the Town Board to
call a public meeting of taxpayers
by whom the matter might be fully
discussed, and consideration given to
tbe best method of bringing these matters under tho notice of the Dominion
and Provincial Governments with a
view to having the necessary works]
carried out. Probably the best course
will be to pass resolutions and forward
them to the representatives cf the district, in both iho Dominion and Provincial Parliaments, with a request
that they do their utmost to have effect given to the suggestion embodiedin
such resolutions.

The old man who looks out at the
world with clear and healthy eyes cannot help feeling great gratification at
the thought that bis children have inherited from him no weakness nor tendency to disease. The healthy old man
is the man who has throughout Ins
life kept bis digestion good and his
blood pure. Not one in a 1.000 does do
it. Germs go through the healthy
body without effect. Let them once
find lodgment or let them find a weak
spot, they will develop by the
million and the blood be full of them.
Instead of giving strength to the tie*
sues, it will force upon them innutri*
tious matter, and the man    will  lose
It is altogether admirable
hen a man, by dint of
ill, wrings a for-
;   from   niggardly
umstances.     The
world    is   full
of instances
where    men
have done this,
but   never   in I
history was this
accomplished
by a weak and '
unhealthy man, j
Ill-health    not |
only    weakens '
every  physical
function but every mental faculty and every
moral quality.
If ? man will
stop and reason
for a moment,  \
^ he    does    not
have to be a physician to understand the
cause? of impure blood, or its far reaching
effects. When a man's digestion is disordered, his liver sluggish, his bowels inactive, the blood is deprived of the proper
food elements, and the sluggish liver and
bowels supplv in their place, the foulest
of poisons, the Wood is the life-stream.
When it is full of foul poisons, it carries |
and deposits them in every organ and tissue of the body. Bone, sinew, muscle, and .
flesh-tissue, the brain cells and the nerve
fibres are all fed upon bad, poisonous food.
Serious ill-health is bound to result. The
man is weakened in every fiber of his body, j
He is weakened physically, mentally and
morally. He suffers from sick headache,
distress in stomach after meals, giddiness
and drowsiness, loss of appetite and sleep,
bad taste in the mouth, shakiuess in the
morning, and dullness throughout the day,
and lassitude and au indisposition to work.
Sooner or later these conditions develop
consumption, nervous prostration, malaria,
rheumatism, or some blood or skin disease.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is
the best of all known medicines for ambitious, hard-working men and women. It is
the great blood-maker and flesh-builder.
It makes the appetite keen and hearty, and
the digestion and assimilation perfect, the
liver active, the blood pure and rich, the
nerves steadv, the body vigorous and the
brain alert. Where there is also constipation Dr. Pierce's pleasant Pellets should be
used. Both of these ereat medicines are
for sale by all medicine dealers,

DEAR Sir, - In reply to your enquiry
regarding my knowledge of the Dyke
Cure for Intemperance, I have to say
tliHt it was brought under my notice
about a year ago, aud 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
becoming entirely changed and remaining till the present time sober and useful citizens. Several other parties
treated at the same time I have lost
sight oL, but do not ���ersoually know
ofacaseont of a half a dozen in which
tbe treatment was not. successful.
With best wishes I remain.
Yours sincerely,

endless medicines given me by medical
men, and getting worse, I became utterly disheartened.

told me that Paine's Celery Compound
had cured her. I used the Compound

H. K. Noodle Before the Court-Fine I
$1 and Costs.
A case affecting the Golden School
came before Mr. Griffith, at the Police
Court on Monday marning, when H.
R. Moodie was charged on theinforma*
tion of the School Trustees, with having created a disturbance iu the school
on & recent date.
"W. L. Houston, trustee, said the
trustees had offered to drop the matter
if Mr. Moodie would tender an apology,
but this he declined to do.
J. A. Bates, teacher in charge, gave
evidence as to his refusing to receive
buck defendant's daughter without tho
consent of tho trustees, as lu refused
to give him a satisfactary answor as
to her future good behavior. The
children wheio at their desks ready to
sit down when he saw the defendant
in tbe room and went across to apeak
to him,   when   he   said,   ,'What the
d in an this fuss about"   Witness
drew his attention to tho fact that the
ohiIdem were present and that was no
place to say anything. Defendant
shook his fist in witness' faco and
Said "I'll bring charges against you
that will put you out ot this. He culled witness a "G d something
and walked out of the school taking
his little boy with him.
To Defendant: ���Did not '.ell your
daughter that "I would slup her
on the mouth and make her see
stars." Said I wonld slap her on the
mouth for misbehavior.
W Bookout and R. Kenny, pupils
at the Heboid, also gave evidence as
tho language used by defendant.
Defendant admitted he had called
Mr. Bates a d hound.
Defendant said he hnd great difficulty in persuading his daughter to go
to school on account, of things Mr.
Bates was in tho habit of saying to
her. Had asked Mr. Bates to place
bis little boy elsewhere than where ho
was placed as be wished to keep him
away from another boy. Instead of
complying he said offensive things to
hie children such as that his daughter
should be sent to a ladies school, as
this school wus not good enough for
her. When she wtnt to school she
was met with the question, "was she
going to behave herself?" She replied
she always did behave. He then told
her she could not come back to school
till she saw the trustees. The whole
affair occurred before school had commenced. On hearing from his daughter what had occurred he went down
to the school. Mr. Bates was outside
as he weut, and by the time he got to
the school he was inside standing on
the platform. Asked Mr. Bates whv
he had sent Ethel home but he did not
reply. Asked a second time, when he
replied "you wilt have to see the trustees." Defendant said he should have
laid charges last summer, and that he
would do it now and have the matter
sifted. He positively denied having
shaken his fist in Mr. Bates' face, but
put out his hand to his little boy to
take him home, and turning to  Bates
told him he was * d-  hound.    Had
the school been going on he would not
have gone inside but called Bates out.
His Worship said that when tho
trustees had asked Mr, Moodie
to apologize it would have
been better had he done so.
If the Trustees were going tu allow
interruptions of that kind how wero
the childern to be taught. If Mr.
Moodie- could prove tho charges he had
made against Mr. Bates he would not
be allowed to remain in that school.
He might have children going to the
school himself aud he would certainly
not care to send them while these
charges remained unvestigated. It
was the duty of the trustees to investigate them and he hoped they would
do so. Mr. Moodie was evidently in a
hot temper but he had some provocation. He would impose a fine if $1
and costs, $2 to go to the trustees. If
Mr. Moodie had any reason for these
charges he should press them.

recitations were rendered by several
gentlemen, many of whom received
hearty encores. The gathering broke
up at a reasonable hour with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and the
National Anthem.
The Golden curlers all speak well of
tho gentlemanly and cordial manner in
which they were treated by the Calgary hoys both on and off the ice.

Dodd's Kidney Pills Havo Muny Start-
ling Cares to Their Credit In Bruce
County.-No Medicine Miule can
Approach  Them.
Paisley, Jan 31.-A marked peculiarity of the people of Bruce county is
their firm belief in Dodd's Kidney
Pills, as a sute cure for Bright's Disease, Diabetes, and all other Kidtiuy
troubles.
So many remarkable cures have been
made by Dodd'a Kidney Pills, in this
country that the people's confidence in
them is only natural.
One of those who have been rescued
bv Dodd's Kidney Pills is James
Thompson, of Paisley. Ho suffered for
years, with "an extreme case of Diabetes," and was so bad he could hardly move. Almost every medicine on
the market was tried, without effect.
Then he tried Dodd's Kidney Pills.
His recovery began at that time. Now
he is fully restored to health.
Mr. Thompson is only one of many
thousands who have been cured of
Kidney Diseases, by Dodd's Kidney
Pills. The simple, undeniable truth is
that evory person who has used them
for any of these diseases has been
thoroughly and permanently cured.
This cannot be said, truthfully, of any
other medicine that has ever been used.
Dodd's Kidney Pills stand alone, in
proud position far above any rivals.
Dodd's Kidney Pil's always cuke
