An association has been formed at
Fort Steelo for the purpose of advancing the mining interests of this section
of East Kootcnav. The project has
beon discussed for some time, for it
has become apparent to all those interested in the advancement of the country that something had to be done to
bring to the notice of the outside
world the numerous valuable mineral
deposits that were laying idle for the
want of capital to develop them The
association is called lho Fort Steele
Mining Association of East Kootenay,
B.C., the constitution being formed on
broad enough lines to include all those
who are in any way interested in the
welfare of the country.
After several meetings the constitution and by-laws have been adopted,
the officers elected, and everything has
been now placed on satisfactory basis
lor the transaction of business, and
-with a paid-up list of over forty members there is every probability that the
association will be quite successful in
its aims: which are, to establish a
bureau of mining information and
cabinet at Fort Steele, for the purpose
of being in a position to afford all
necessary information concerning any
mino or mineral claim in the section.
All members being impressed witli
the necessity of giving into the
Secretary nil the data and assays
of any of their own claims or any other
that they have knowledge of; by
which means we hope to be in a position to given reliable description of all
mineral claims, that is as to their position, width of vein, character of reck,
amount of assay, in fact all that is
generally1 known of a mineral claim in
its first stages. And further than
that,.from time to time papers will be
written descriptive of the different
mines and mineral deposits of the section and sent out for publication in
the leading newspapers of the Province
and adjoining States. Such papers
will be subject to the approval of a
committee appointrd for the purpose,
so as to do away with, as much as
possible, the danger of any highly
colored or unreliable report being published abroad, which might cast discredit on our Association; by these
means we trust to make our influence
felt in the section, and expect the
hearty co-operation of all classes, be
they miners or not, for it is only by
the development of our mines that any
real progress is possible in this section
of British Columbia.

Banff, Ai.ta., Mch. 10th, '95.
Mr. Editor,���*'One of the Boys"
in his letter last week has omitted the
names of several who were still unmarried on my last visit to that "town
of fair ladies "���Donald.
The first that strikes my memory is
jovial Geo. Sutherland, with his hearty
laugh and his big heart, (two thirds
reserved for the fair sex), who was
about the only bachelor who got out a
cutter and took the girls for a ride
when I was in the town.
Then Charlie Baines surely has not
left the town, nnd his small stature
would not render him ineligible.
Surely T. Downey is not yet married
for though he worship-jed at the
shrine of beauty, still he never seemed
to "come to the point." Blythe too
was well known as a ladies man and
though his appearance was tho reverse
of his name still some ladies fancy
thnt still of beauty.
I suppose that Tommy Coughlin
and llillv Bonus Iieing so near the
fatal leap are no longer considered as
bachelors. But how about Al. Vye,
" Protty " Honderson, Jim l.iiphum,
Billy Jordan, Bob Hylnntl, Arthur
Denman, Bob Collie, Joe Laiizo, Mat
Otto, "Kid" Hopgood, and last but
not least Cassie, for though Hassle
says that he is married 1 don't believe
it, for what business has a married
man buying bonnets for young girls.
Hoping " Ono of tho Boys " will continue his admirable catalogue.
I remain,
" One or Them in Si'ikit."

J. C. BROWN,    -    MANAGER,
Golden, B.C.
Gentlemen: -
In response to the widely expressed
desire of representative men in various
parts of vour District I have decided
to come forward as a candidate at the
forthcoming elections, in opposition to
the present government.
As this is such an enormous district
I am. of course, personally unknown
to a large number ol you ; but I n.ay
state that I have large interests at and
around Ducks and Kamloops, and am
very desirous, for yonr wellare and
mine, to see this Province progress
more than it has done the last few
I am opposed to the policy of protection whicli has been pursued for the
last sixteen vears, as being unfitted to
the requirements of the country and
benefitting the Lw at the expense of
the many.
I join in the condemnation of the
corrupt manner iu which the administration of the affairs of this country
has been carried on during the time
that the present party has been iu
I consider:���
1. That a customs tariff, if imposed
at all, should only he for the purpose
of raising a revenue, not for the purpose of | rotection:
2. That freer trade relations witli
Great Britain and the United States
would immediately benefit this country :
3. That under existing circumstances and the peculiar nature ot the
country mining machinery should be
allowed to come in free of duty '.
4. That the natural resources of
the country should be the first to be
5. That in order to accomplish this
end the country should be opened up,
the rivers made navigable, and increased facilities for communication anil
transportation afforded:
6. That the mail and other contracts let. by the government should be
put up to public tender:
T. That the strictest economy
should be observed in the administration of the public service, and all unnecessary expenditure should be stopped:
8. That all complaints in regard to
the disposal of government lands and
issuing ot titles should be inquired
into uud any grievances redressed, and
llie surveys iu the railway belt completed as quickly as possible.
As this district comprises so large
an extent of country it will be impossible for ine to visit every polling division und become acquainted with the
electors, but I shall make a point of
visiting as many as possible aud holding meetings for the purpose of placing
my views on public matters before
yon, nnd learning froiq you thu local
requirements ot each district.
I have no objects ot my own to serve
bv asking you to support ine, but I
have time that I can give to promote
the interests of this District, the Province, and the Dominion, and I shall
devote it to that purpose.
For these reasons I ask yonr support ut the approaching Dominion
Elections, nnd trust you will see fit to
give it to ine.
Yours faithfully,

Lnrine was pretty, petite and 18. She
had a nice situation at the Pharmacie de
Siam, .in the Rue St. Honore. She had
no one dependent upun her, and all the
money she earned wa* her own. Her
dress was of cheap material perhaps, but
it was cut and fitted witb thut daintiness
of perfection which seems to be the
natural --if*, uf the Parlsiemie. ao that one
never thought of the cheapness, but admired only the effect whioh was charming.
She was bookkeeper aud genii* assistant
at the pliuriuaeie ami luul a littl* room of
her own across the Seine, in the Kue de
Lille. Sin* crossed the river twice every
day -once in trie morning when the sun
was shilling, and again at ni-ini. wheu th*
radium lights along the river's bunk glittered like jewels iu a long necklace. She
had her little walk through the gardens of
the Tuileriee every morning after she hud
crossed the Pont Royal, but did not return
through the gm-il. ns In the evening, fur a
park iu the morning ia a different thing to
a park at night. Uu Iter return she always walked along the Hue de Tuilei-iea
until ah* came to ths bridge to see the
gleaming white statues III the sunlight.
Her favorite statue was one of a woman
who stood ou a pedestal near the Rue de
Rivoli. The arm was thrown over her
bend, and mere was a smile ou the marble
lace wlii-rh was inscrutable. It fascinated
the girl as she i.siked up ... it. and seemed
to be lhe morning greeting to her busy
day's work iu the city. It' no huh was in
sight, which wast.tteu the case at 0 o'clock
in the morning, the giri kissed tu* tips of
her lingers, mnl tossed the salute airily up
lo the alatue, aud the wotuau ol stoiio
always sullied bad: ut her tin, strange,
���t.vsucal smile whicli seemed lo express-
th.ii it knew much more ol thin world anl
it* wny. ; him uid tin. little Purislonu* who
daily guzed up .tl her.
Lnrine was nappy, as a matter of course,
for wus not Paris always beauilful? Did
not the sun shine brightly? Aud was not
the air alwaia clear? Wiint more, then,
could a young girl wish! There was one
thing wiiiou w���� perhaps lacking, but that
at last was supplied; ami then there wus
not a happier gin in a,l Paris thau Luriue.
She aluiu.il crieii it nluiul to her favorite
statue the nent moru.ug, for it aeemed to
ber taut tile smile liud broadened since she
bad passed it tne morning betore, and she
felt as if tha wuuiiin ut stone guessed the
secret uf the woman uf dean.
Luriue had noticed him fur several day*
hovering about tue piiarmaoie, and looking
iu nt ber now and men; sue saw it all, but
pretended tu: to see..
On* night he followed her aa far as the
bridge, but she wulked rapidly on, and
he did nut overtake her. he never entered the plu.rmu.ie, but lingered about as if
waiting for a ulianee lu sneuk to her.
Lur.ne had no uue tu cuutfde in but the
wumau of stone, and it aeemed by her
smile that sue uuderstuod already, and
there was uo need to tell her tnat lb*
inevitable young man had come. The
next night u* loiiowed ber quite across
tue bridge, and this time Luriue did not
walk so quickly. Girls in her position
aie not supposed tu have formal introductions to uieir lovers.
"Quod evening," waa all he said to her.
She glanced eidawa. a shyly at him, but
did nut answer, aud tlie young man walked on beside her.
..you com* this way every night," be
uid. "1 have been watching you. Are
you offbdedt"
"No,  sh* aatd, almost la a whisper.
������Then may I walk with yoa to your
home?" he asked.
"You may walk with me as far as the
comer of the Rue de Lille," she replied.
"Thank you!"said the young fellow,
and together they walked the short distance, and tliere lie bade her good-night,
after asking permission to meet her at tlie
eurner of th* Rue St. Honor*, and walk
bum* with her tli* next night.
"You must nut come to tho shop," sho
"I understand," he replied, nodding his
head in as: nt to her fn-bee. He tuld h.rr
his nuuie was Jean Dnti't, mil bymid by
she called him Jean, and lie rail ad Imr
Luriue. 1 Ie never haunted tli* Pha.maci*
now. bnt waited tot her at lb* corner, and
on* Snuday be took her for a little excursion ou tbe river, which she enjoyed exceedingly. Thn* time weut on. and Lnrine
was very happy. The statue smiled ils
enigmatical smile, though, when th* sky
was overcast, then seemed to her a subtle
warning In tne smile. Pel baps it was because they had quarreled the ulght before.
Jean had seemed to her han.li and uufur-
Eivmg. He hnd asked ber If sh. oonld not
ring him sum* things from th* Pharmacie, and guv* her a list of three chemicals, tb* nam** of whleb be had written
en a paper.
"Yoa can easily get tbem," he had said:
they are in every pharmacie, and will
never be missed."
"tint," said the girl tn horror, "that
would be stealing."
The young man laughed.
"How tnuoh do tbey pay yon there?" hs
asked. And when sh* told bim, he laugh-
ad, again, and said:
"Why, blew yon, if I -rot so little as
that I would take something from th*
shelves jyjry dnyjud sell It"	
l'-e girl looked: at mm in amazement,
and he. angry at her, turned upon his heel
and left her. She leaned her arms upon
the pa-upet if the bridge, aud looked
duwu Itiiu the dark water. Tne river
aiways fascinated her at night, aud she
often puiistil tu look at it when crossing
tbe liriugf, shuddering as she .lid su. She
cried a liuleas sh* tlinugnt ��f ins abrupt
departure, and wondered if she had tiei-n
um harsh -Aim hiui. After all, it was not
very much he naked her to do, and they
did pny her so little ut the pharmacie.
And llien, perhaps her lover was poor, and
needed tlie ar litres he had asked her tu get
Perhaps he was ill. and had aaid nothing.
There was a touch ou her shoulder. She
looked round. Jean was beside ber, bnt
Ihe trown had not yet disappeared from
hia brow.
"Give me that paper," h* said, abruptly.
She unclosed her hand, and he picked
the paper from it, and waa turning away.
"Stop!" she said; "I will get you what
yon want, but 1 will myself put the money
in the till for what they cost"
He stood there, looking st her for a
moment, uud then said:
"Luriue. I think yoo am a littl* fool.
They owe yon ever so much more than
that   However, I mutt have th* things,"
and he gave her baok tbe paper with the
"Be sure yon let no one see that, and be
very certain that yon get th* right
things." He walked'with heras far as the
corner of line de Lille. "Yon are not
angry with met" he asked ber before they
"I wonld do anything for yon," she
whispered, aud then h�� kissed her goodnight.
She got the chemicals when the proprietor was out, and tied them np neatly, a*
was her habit afterwards concealing tliei-
in the little basket in which she carried
her lunch. The proprietor was a auarp*
eyed old lynx, who looked well after hia
shop and Lis pretty little assistant
"Who bus been getting so much ohlorate
of pctash?" be risked, taking down th* jar,
and looking sharply at her.
The girl trembled.
"It is all right," she said. "Her* la the
money iu the till."
"Of eonrui'," he said. "I did not expsot
you toglvn it '.way for nothing. Who
bought It!"
"An old nun ' replied the girl, trembling still, bnt the proprietor did not uotic*
that���he was oountiug the money, and
found it right
"I was wondering what h ��� wanted with
so much of it. If he come* in agaiu look
sharp!, at him, and be able to describe bim
���o tne. It seems suspicions." Why it seem-
jd suspicions Lnrine did not know, but
she passed an anxious time Until she took
the basket iu her hand aud went lo meet

Secrets of Their Live..
Every man's life, no matter how humble, would furnish nn Interesting book if
cleverly written. You can't always tell
by a glance at a man what bis past has
lieen. There is a humble- carpenter ill
town wbo was the prize orator at an Eastern college. Not far from the home ot the
writer of this there lives an ugly, decrepit
old woman who was considered iu her
youth the handsomest girl in Kentucky.
Poems were written iilsmt her, men went
crnsy over her, and duels were fought by
jealous admirers. Yet she married a
worthless man who got drunk and abused
her. Tha intensely religious life followed
by another niiui lu towu is tlie result ot
remorse over having caused the death of n
comrade a great many years ago. A woman who was once presented nt court in
England Is not admitted to the lajst society
In Atchison. A highly respectable citizen
sends $1,000 a year away to the conscience
fund nt Washington. Young people nre
interesting for what they are, but the
older folks are more interesting for what
they have lieen, if they could lie induced
to tell the story.���Atchison Globe.

I'll* Sweet Chilli.
A sweet child sat at it table near me in a
restaurant not long ago. He was a child
of the Lord Fauntleroy type, and its
mother's back hair had that hopeless,
tired-of-Iife look that only the possession
of thnt sort ot offspring can give. The
sweet child was frank in hia comments on
everything he saw.
"Oh, mnl" said he, pointing to a man
whose ears were so arranged that they
could freckle on the under side, "get on to
them ears."
"Hush.Georgle," remonstrated the mother, visibly embarrassed, "tbe gentleman
will hear you."
"Huh!" said Georgia, "if he couldn't
with them ears he ought to be ashamed.''
And only the strident voice of a waiter
somewhere in the distance broke the silence.

The entertainment for the lienefit of
tho public ,'icliool was held lust Friday
evening at the Dolgardno Hall and
was a great success, not only iu attendance but ulso from a (iuiincinl point.
The hall was filled with an attentive
audience and when the chairman, Mr.
Galbraith. proceed .-il to open the entertainment with an address, not a
vacant seat was in the room, whicli
speaks well for tlio interest the residents took in its success.
A very careful programme had been
prepared and wns faith fully curried
out. The first piece on the list wns an
instrumental duett by Prof. Farquhar-
son on the violin and Miss Bailey on
the organ, it is needless to say it was
well rendered, then followed songs
and recitations by tlie pupils of the
public school, and the creditable manner in which they acquitted themselves
showed how carefully they had been
trained. Master Herbert Clark followed witli an excellent rendering of a
"Psalm of Life," which was well received. A reading by Master Roy
Leeper, of Dallas, Texas, was attentively listened to, then a duett by Mrs.
Jennings and Mrs. Sucksmith, ���' Far
Away" was admirably given, their
sweet voices blending nicely together.
An amusing recitation by Mr. P. Will-
lnott, entitled, " Fort Steele from 1893
to 1895," full of local "hits" kept the
audience in good humor and wns very
much enjoyed. Then a song by Mr.
F.Woods, "Killaloo," it is needless
to say was well sung and showed Mr.
Woods possessed a finely cultivated
voice. A charming recitation by Miss
Bailey, "Edinburgh after Flodden"
was well received, then followed n
short play in which Masters Clark
and Leeper and Miss M. Wade were
the principal actors ami the parts were
so well sustained by the trio that the
audience was kept iu roars of laughter.
A song iiy Mr. Samuel Hodson followed
"I stood nt the Bridge," his clear
baritone voice told well in its rendition and he was loudly applauded.
An amusing charade came next in
which Mr. Justice McVittie, Mrs.
Levett, Miss E. Frizzell, Mr. James
Murphy and Mr. .Samuel Hodson took
part, each sustaining their role admirably. Mr. Hodson, us a " had hoy "
was simply perfect, Mrs. Levett ns
mother, graceful nnd natural and Mr.
Justice McVittie as a crotchety "old
father" was illimitable. Miss Frizzell
as daughter, excellent, and Mr, James
Murphy as "our cousin" was perfectly
nt home in his part nud showed from
his acting that he had carefully pte-
piirod nnd understood the spirit of the
play. Mr. Justice McVittie brought
down the house by introducing the
celebrated advertisement of C.rlin &
Lake's wonderful astral oil. It wns
full of local hits and was no respecter
of persons, from the Indian Agent to
the bridge foreman, recorder and constable, none escaped, and the audience
was kept amused. Then followed the
" shadow pictures " which were much
enjoyed and the evening's entertainment was brought to a close by singing "God Save the yucen." The
success of the evening's entertainment
was in a great measure due to tho indefatigable exertions of our public
school teacher, Miss Bailey, ably
assisted liy our popnlnr Ch ef Justici
Mr. McVittie, who superintended all
mutters i-otitiented with tbe stage, etc.,
aud scenic effects, and to Mr. Join
Giassick ivho lent a willing hand to
irect the stage, gratuitously nnd cheer
fully. We believe It U the intention
to have another entertainment after
tlie Easter holidays.
A very enjoyable evening was spent
recently ut Wasa. Our host Hanson
gave an invitation to a number of
ladies and gentlemen from Fort Steele
to a ball. Dancing was kept up until
midnight wlien an excellent supper
was sat down to by the guests. It is
well known thut our friend Ha..son
docs uot do things by halves and all
the delicacies that could be thought of
were on the table. Mr. Hanson and
his genial assistant William Blade
weie most attentive to the guests aud
before leaving, it was voted tlie
dunce" of the season. Too much
praise cannot be given to our worthy
friend Barnes, who left nothing undone to make the visit of those who
accompanied him to Wasa pleasant.

II. E. Forster and Charlie Edwards
are visiting Hyde Baker at Cranbrook,
they intend paying F. P. Norbury a
short visit.
The ladies of Fort Steele have decided to give a literary and musical entertainment every Friday to which all
the gentlemen have been invited, and
we understand that the gents intend
inviting their lady friends to a similar
entertainment on Wednesday evening,
this will make time pass pleasantly.
Mr. Robt. Jennings reports his
work at Wild Horse Creek getting
..Ioiir satisfactorily, he is now down
125 feet anl no bed rock yet.
On Sunday evening last divine service wns conducted as usual at the
public school room, bv Mr. Galbraith.
His subject was "The Prodigal Son,"
which was listened to attentively
The attendance at these services is
very good and shows the deep interest
tho people take in them. The singing
hy the choir was excellent.
Our old pioneer, Mr. David Griffith,
left us for London for a three mouth's
visit, per last stage.
We wish him a pleasant voyage and
a safe return to his home in Kootenay.
Mr. William Fernie, J.P., sent the
ludy treasurer a handsome subscription to our organ fund.
At a meeting recently held in the
school house, the Mining Association
