Says the Pi-OTinco: "The new British Columbia government has
record for itself in this regard that is
a gratifying reversal of the rule.
Everyone of its pro-election pledges
has been kept and it has also iniiugur-
ated much uaaa-f.il legislation ��� .
or nothing was said ubon ef ��� it
attained office. Tlio repeal of tho
nicitj-rnRa) tax. the reduction of the
rale of interest on tho b.init overdraft
from four to three per cent., ibe ami-
mongolian legislation, tho throwing
open of railway reserves to progpeotors,
the repeal of lhe aat molting; a six
months- residenci* compulsory in the
case of barristers coining from oilier
provinces, the alien exclusion act us
regards the Atlin country placers are
all feathers in the new government's
cap of which both ihe government and
the pBovince have every reason to be
prouJ. The now government has done
more for British Columbia during the
few mouths it has been iu office, than
the Turner government did (luring all
the years that it mismanaged tho
country's affairs. In fact it may be
said lhat up to the present British
Columbia lias never had a government." _
True to their pledges the Simlin
Government have introduced legislation to repeal the mortgage tux.
Says the Cranbroou Herald: '-The
Windermere district, promises- to be a
rich one, anal that community will take
a grant step forward this year."
The Kooteuay Mail remarks
"Tho Turner party is looking for a
new name and it has beeu already
called the B. C. First Party. Does
this stand for Big Corporations First
Party ?"
Truly everything looks well for the
mining industry. Following on the
rise in copper there is a substantial
ris-i iu lead whicli a-.alvaiicual 20 cents
at New York on Thursday, the closing
pi-iiso being 4-4..-10.
eighteen years ago since I lirst had the
pleasure of knowing Mr. Martin aud I
have nover known a man whose
private und public life has been conducted more with honor and high
principle, is it not a notable thing
thoy have nothing to say against him?
All thoy tell j-oh is that he was thrown
over by his party."
How have iho mighty fallen ? The
Turner party ban ao thoroughly fallen
into disrepute that in the iSel-aoo election poor Mr, Farwoll lost his deposit,
just as would havo happened to any
Tui-noi-ite opposing Mr. Wells in North
East Kootenay.
The Semlin Government ore fulfilling
their election pledges to the letter.
They have repeuled tlio act allowing a
tive million loan and are contenting
themselves with a loan of a million
and three-quarters, over half of which
is required to wipe out tbe legacy of
bunk overdraft left by the Turner government. The Government have also
knocked out the extravagant susidiet
provided by the Turner Goveinmeut
[oi-C.P.U.,Maekeu2ie&.Maun and British Pacific railway schemes. This
prompt and decisive action has creatod
consternation among the charter-mongers who have hitherto been robbing
-.lie Province
For the first time in the history of
ths Province the Government is en*
rleavoring to put the finances of the
Province ill such shape that the revenue will overtake the expenditure, so
that the reign of debts aud deficits
may lie at an end. Retrenchment will
be effected by the cutting down of
extravagant salaries and doing away
with useless officials, while more
money will be available for publio
works and education than hitherto.
This is a grand policy, and one in
which we wish the Government all
success. It is certainly a policy that
will meet wilh the approval of the

Says the Kamloops Sentinel: "The

not dominated by Turnerisoi in any
form, The Colonist forgets that Victoria has a corner on that commodity,
such as it is. If the North Eaiat
Kootenay election hail beeu decided by
a poll this would havo been strikingly
demonstrated if only to show that the
raising of tbo sectional cry in Victoria
recently is a thing to ba resented."
* The Winnipeg Triliuuo says : "Hon.
Mr. Martin seems to be duplicating in
British Columbia much of the useful
legislation which, as attorney -genera!
in the Greenway government, he put
through the Manitoba legislature.
His latest measure is one :.o deprive
civil servants, soldiers und sailors, of
the franchise. The bill which we
have in this province, covering the
same ground, has been found to work
admirably, and we believe tbat it is
generally recognized to be in the interests of tbe civil servants themselves,"
A wtiter in the Nelson Tribune pays
tht following tribute to Hon. Joseph
Martin, Attorney-general of B.C.:������
"The opposition appears to level its
guns against our attorney-general,
their cry 'Joe Martin, Joe Martin,' is
it not a notable thing that tbey have
not word to bis discredit?   It is neatly
Great activity is promised in lhe
north during the coming season and it
looks as if Beaver is going to boom up
into a live townsite. It is proposed to
put a steamer on ths Columbia River
to run from Beaver as far as Surprise
Rapids, where there will he a two mile
portage, and then anothor steamer
will connect and run right up the Columbia to the Big Bend and thence 40
miles up Canoo River to the Big Jam.
This will transport freight by water a
hundred miles, or to within sixty
miles of Tele Jaune Cache.
The Revelstoke people are also abont
to bid for this trado by putting a
steamer on the Columbia River north
of Revelstoke. That, route however is
40 miles longer and will be a most
difficult one to handle, owing to the
numerous rapids and several portages
will he required; wherea's on the route
from Beaver is a first-class water way,
with the exception of Surprise Rapids.
Truly North East Kootenay is entering ou a new period of prosperity.
Tha late W. G. Neilson, M.P.P. had a
very high opinion of the outlook for
Beaver as uu important townsite in
tbo future owing to its being the necessary point of connection between tho
Upper Columbia River and Canoe River
with the C.P.R. line at its most northern point. Mr. Neilson's ideas on this
score seem to be about to be realised.
Donald will he the best point for
land traffic from the north to connect
with tiie C.P.R., but until a wagon
road is built the traffic frotn and to
Donald must bo limited to pack trains.
T: e existing mail arrangements be-
iweou Uolden and Wiilderiuers are
found io he very unsatisfactory iu
that there is often not snffia.ient lime
to answer correspondence and fill orders hy return mail, as the lime-table
is now arranged, The mail is rarely
sorted betoro about six o'clock on tho
dey of arrival at Golalen, and is supposed r.o close again a, bout eight o'clock

advantage lo our business meo if the

day at lenst. We suggest te the
Golden Board of Trado that they
sliould make some representations to
the jioittul authorities on the matter.

Tbe Now Brunswick elections have
resulted practically in the wiping out
of the Conservative party in that province, only 4 Conservatives being returned as against 42 Liberals. The
light was largely between the liberals
as represented in the Dominion House
by Mr. Blair, and the conservatives as
repra-sntited in the Dominion House by
Hou. Geo. E. Foster, indeed it is considered that the result of tho election
must be that Mr. Foster cannot even
gain his own seat st the next Dominion elections, the County of York,
which he now represents, having re*
jected all four of the candidates pat up
by tho Hon. G. E. Foster.

Problems to lie Considered.
London, Feb. 13.���The president of
the chamber of shipping, at thn annual meeting of tbat body today, referred to tbe excellent relations between Great Britain und tbe United
States, but said there wore certain questions whioh must bo faced, for instance
that of the neutrality of the Nicaragua
canal. He trusted tbat tbo foreign
oflioe would not agree to the abrogation
of the Olayton-Bnlwor treaty unless
tbe neutrality of the canal aud non-
prtferential rates in it* use were guar-
.Intend tho Act.
Vancouver, Feb. 14.���Juntos Lambert, wbo has returned from Atlin, in-
uauo*. to suggest to tho goverumeut
some further alterations ia the placer
wining act. He states that speculators,
practically Americans, liavo staked ont
many placer claims in tho Atlin district, but have not recorded them. A
newcomer does not know this. When
be arrives in the district ho sees the
stakes aud is about to pass on when he
is accosted by u man who says that for
t*50 ho ean get tho newcomer one of the
staked out claims. The new arrival
may not hnve $."i0 to spare and has to
go further afield. He cannot waste
time to make a two days' jnnrnoy to
see if the claims are recorded. Tbe
present placer mining act, Mr. Lambeit
says, sbuuld be umeuded so that all locators be obliged to placo their names
and tho number of their miues' licenses
an the stake just in the same way as is
provided by tbo quartz mining act. If
this was done, Americans and others
would not, Mr. Lambert thinks, be so
easily able to speculate at tho expense
of lenitimate minors.

" Handsome is that handsome does," is theold theoretical adage, but after all it's the
skin-deep beauty that's attractive. It would take a big lot
of handsome doing to compensate for a skin that is
diseased and whose appearance is distasteful to all who
it, and the torment of the
patient whose daily burden it
is to bear it about. Da.

Paris, Fob. 17.���M. Felix Fa-are,
president of the republic of France,
died at 10 o'clock last night after an
illness of three hours. Death was from
apoplexy. The president was OS years
of age last Jauuary. It had be-11 known
for some time that his beart was weak;
Imt the first intimation that he was
sick was given at half-past six this
afternoon when a message was dis
patched to Premier M. Dupuy,announc
ing thnt tne president was ill. M.
Dupny immediately repaired to the
Elysee. All medical efforts proved
futile, and tho president died ou the
stroke of 10. The Hag over the Elyseo
was immediately lowered to half mast
and the news was dispatched to all the
officials and tho members of the cub
inet. General Znrlindcu,military gov
ernor of Paris, the grand chancellor of
the Legion of Honor, tho prefect of the
Seine,tbo prefect of the police of Paris,
and tho presidents of the senate nnd
chamber of deputies promptly arrived
at the Elysee.
The report spread rapidly through
tho city, and largo crowds soon assembled iu tho vicinity of the palase.
Abont 0 o'clock, M. Fauro, who was
then in his stndy, went to the door of
the room of M. LeGull, his private secretary, which is contiguous to the
study, nnd said: "I do not feel well.
Come to me." M. LeGall immediately
wont to tho president's aid, led him to
a sofa, and called General iJiiillond,
general secretary of the president's
household; M. Blonde], under private
secretary, and Dr. Humbert, who happened to bo at the Elysee attending a
relative. The president's condition
did not appear dangerous; bnt Dr.
Humbert, on perceiving that he was
rapidly getting worse, telephoned for
Dr. Lanne-laoiigue, and Dr. Chonrlet,
who arrived with M* Dupuy, and were
joined later by Mr. Bergeroy. Thongh
M. Faure still retained consciousness,
the doctors soon recognized that the
case wns hopeless; bnt it was not until
nearly 8 o'clock that tbe members of
the family wore informed of the real
state of affairs. They then came to the
sofa win re the president lay upon 11
hoBtily improvised bed. Soon after he
began to loose conscionsness, and despite all efforts, expired at 10 o'clock in
tlio presence of tho family and M,
Dupuy. M. Dnpny commnnicnted the
sad intelligence to M. Lonbet, presi
dent of tho senate; M. Paul Deschancl,
president of the chamber of deputies,
the members of the cabinet, and to
other high fnuntioiiaries, after which he
addressed the following dispatch to all
prefects and sub-prefects iu France:
"I have the sad task to announce to
you, in the death of the president,
which occurred at 10 o'clock last even
iiig, as the result of an apoplectic
siiokc. Kindly take the necessary
measures to inform the population
immediately of the monrning thnt has
fallen upon the republic. The government counts upon yonr active vigilance
.it this painful juncture." It was not
until 11 o'clock that the nows began to
become known to the general pnblic in
Paris. From that timo began 11 continuous arrival of publio men. Street
orders, however, were issued, and only
members of the cabinet wero admitted
to tbe Elyseo.
The president was apparently aware
of tho serionsness of tho attack, for he
said: "I feel myself failing; I am
gone, all gone," and he expressed a
desire to see his wifo and children
When Madame Faure and Mademoiselle
Luoie Faure entered the room tho president exclaimed: "Jo suis bieu souf-
frnnt. Je ?uis perdu," ("I am
suffering greatly; I am lost.") M.
Faure remained on a sola, repeating
that he had no illusions as to the issue
of bis case. His wife came to him and
he bade her an affectionate farewell.
It was a touching scene. Ho thanked
her for the affection and devotion she
had constantly shown him, and then he
bade farewell to bis daughters, the doc-
tors and his personal attendants, thanking all for their cure nud devotion, and
asking them to pardon any hasty words
he might have uttered.
M. Cambion, French ambassador,had
already retired for the night, when the
news was broken to him. Ho expressed
the greatest surprise and sorrow.
Very painful it was to witness the
distress of Madame Faure ami the
children. Only when wilh the greatest
difficulty could sho be induced to leave
tbe death chamber, and even then she
insisted on remaining iu M. LeGnllo's
room, apart from tbe children, ia order
to give free vent to her grief.

Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills have
done me an incalculable amount of good.
I think they are the best, surest and
quickest acting cure for nervousness,
unhealthy action of tho heart, insomnia or
sleeplessness, anemia or impoverished
blood, loss of appetite, general debility and
ill-health. For nine years, before 1 commenced taking Dr. Ward's Blood and
nerve Pills, my heart was weak and in an
unhealthy state. Its action was so much
impaired that I could not walk across the
street without suffering great distress,
my beart fluttering and beating so rapidly
that I could scarcely breathe, causing
faintnesa, loss of strength, and leaving
my nerves all unstrung. My sleep was
very much disturbed, I had no appetite
and there was little strength or vitality in
my blood; I was always excessively
I have now taken tbree boxes of
Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills and
since taking them I have not been away
from my business an hour. Before taking
these pills it was a frequent occurrence
for me to be away from business. As a
result of taking Dr. Ward's Pills my heart
is perfectly healthy and strong and gives
me no distress or trouble whatever. They
removed all nerve trouble, made my nerves
strong and gave me healthy sleep. These
pills also made my blood rich and strong
and gave ma a healthy appetite. Dr.
Ward's Pills bave given me perfect health,
restoring my lost strength, in place of
continual ill-health, weakness, heart
trouble and nervousness. In justice I
cannot speak too highly of this wonderful
medicine. Signed, Miss N. Millward,

Tha Blood Is a Vital Element-It Must Be
Kept Pure. Rich and Red���Only In This
Way Can Young Girls Attain Perfect
In tbe early days of her womanhood
every girl���no matter what her station
in life���should be bright, active, cheerful eua happy; her step should be light,
her eye bright and ber oheeks rosy with
the glow of health.' But the reverse is
the unfortunate condition of thousands
of yonng girls throughout the Dominion. They drag along, always tired,
never hungry, breathless and with a
palpitating heart after slight exorcise,
so that merely to go np stairs is exhausting. If a doctor is consulted he tells
them that they are anaemic���tbo plain
English for which is they have too
little blood���and unless a powerful
blood enriching, nerve-restoring tonic
snch as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People is taken to restore health,
decline and an early grave is only too
likely to follow.
The benefit which follow tbe use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in oases of this
kind is amply illustrated by the foi-
lowing testimonial from Miss Ida Bookman, of Marksville, Ont. Miss Bookman says: ^'It gives me much pleasure
to acknowledge tbe benefit I have derived from the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. My health was completely
broken down; I became ao weak I
conld scarcely walk across a room,
waa very pale, bad no appetite, and
gradually lost flesh until I was merely
a skeleton. I was subject to palpitation of tbe heart, dizziness and violent
headaches. I was under treatment
from two doctors, but noither seemed
to benefit me and I went on in this
way for abont seven months. Having
seen Dr. Williams' Pink Pills recommended I determined to try them. Before I finished the second box I began to
improve, and by tbe time I bad used
eight boxes I was as well as ever I had
been, and had gained 23 pounds in
weight. I am grateful for what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done for me
and freely give this testimony in tho
hope tbat it may benefit some other
girl suffering aa I was."
More pale and bloodies? girls have
been made bright, active and strong by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills than by any
other means. Mothers shonld see tbat

"With gratitude I can testify to the
wonderful curative powers of Burdock
Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little
son, Freddy, was afflicted with salt rheum
and was in a dreadful condition. His legs,
from the soles of his feet to his body, were
entirely raw, and ran a bloody water,
which appeared to burn and itch until he
was often in ��reat agony.
" After trying several remedies, we resolved to give B, B. B. a trial.
" You can imagine with what delight
and gratitude we saw our boy entirely
cured after using one bottle and part of

of the second bottle, and from that time
till the present he has never had a sign of
salt rheum or a sick day. You need not
wonder that 1 think there is no other
medicine can equal Burdock Blood Bitters
to purify the blood and build up the health
and strength."

This question was asked, a few days

made in last week's papers to theabore
"It is true," answered Mr. Griggs,
emphatically, "I was cured by Dodd's
Kidney Pills when every other medicine I had tried had utterly failed to do
me any good.
"When I was advised to try Dodd'a
Kidney Pills I did not think they
would help me any more than other
medicines had. I was so sick that I
wat willing te try any means, if it
gave a hope, or a chance of cure.
''Well soon after I started using tho
Pills, I began to feel different. I found
in a week or so, that I was actually getting better. I kept on taking the medicine until I had used three boxes.
After that I didn't need any more. I
was cured, completely and permanently. You may know what I think of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, when I tell you

The fall intensity of living is reached ouly by the perfectly healthy. Sickness discounts the capacity for enjoyment. If his body it all out ef order
and run-down, ho will not be able to
enjoy anything, no matter how full of
enjoyment it may be for other people.
If he is just a little bit out of order, if
he "is not sick, but doesn't fuol just

things ill a half-hearted sort of way.

the syenite iimift uitour.
Right opposite Vermont creek group of
claims is the Syenite Iiluff group, consisting of the Syenite BluS, Black
Horse and Agnes. The owners of
these claims are: - Syesite Bluff, H. G.
Lowe, H. B. Alexander and A Jackson ; Black Horse, M. Dainard; Agnes,
H. B. Alexander. These claims afford
au excellent prospect either us a silver-
lead proposition or bismuth-antimony
property.A groat porphyry dyke, which
bas been mistaken for syenite and so
gave the name lo the property, traverses the u-ouiituiii from east to west
and into it run many stringers and ore
systems of which it doubtless contains
the matrix. The mineral system on
this sido of the rauge is a continuation
of lhat on the Hutli group, separated
by the deep channel gored in the heart
of the mountain system by Vermont
Creek. A good dual of work bus been
done on these properties in days gone
by and ore has been shipped from thein.
The Syenite BluS claim is the lowest
of the three and is located along a
steep rooky face. Tho development
work cousin's of a tunnel driven for a
length of 45 feet along a quartz vein
which is exposed on tht surface aud
then a cross drift of 7J feet in length
is run. The lead is of white quart!!,
lift, wide aud runs along the porphyry
dyke, with stringers running into it
showing high grade galena. Higher
up the hill there is a grand shewing
ef galena on the face of the bluff and
along this a tunnel was driven. This
lead has a strike of 30 degrees went of
north and a dip of .'14 to the south.
Instead of following this load, the
tunnel, however, was run straight in
for a distance of 175 feet into barren
ground, then run at right, angles for
75 feet with no better result, und then
the work wns stopped. A big quarts
vein was however .cut in the tunnel
with a strike of 30 west of north and a
dip of 50 to tbt south. The ore is a
nice galena and pyritic quartz, and 7",-
toua were shipped for treatment at the
Golden smelter, but as the smolter was
never fired tht lest win not made so
far as we are aware. Higher up the
mountain side there is one of the best
prospects wo have seen in the district
in the shape of a showing of iron
oxides about ton feet in width, one of
the best indications of mineral leads to
be found in tho country. This lies
between schist, and mctamorpbic rock
and is well worth exploring. An open
cut has been run into it a distance of
15 to 20 fust and shows some line
galena ore. Hiuher up the mountain
side there aro exposures of high grade
galena, aud some tests have shovrn
that the property ought to possess
value as a bismuth proposition. The
property ia from uli appearances one
worthy of exploration with every
promise of goo-1 results, lt is a property that'could be cheaply worked if
the ore-bodies are found to be of sufficient extent auai value io justify operation,
It is not only for galena ores that
Variuour. Creek holds a premier place
as u point worthy of attention, but it
has probably one of tha biggest aud
most, promising copper pvospecls found
in British Columbia, This is the Anaconda Group, iocateal by Aletsrs. Upton
aud Johnston eighteen months ago,
and in which Messrs. C. Cui-twright,
M, Dainard mid A. Logan are now also
interested. The leads ou which these
claims ate Ideated are immense bodies
of quart a, standing up above lhe country rock or covering the surface wiih
their float, Tho main lead can be
traced from Copper Creek over the
summit to Vermont Creek und again
over the next summit to Crystal Creek
The exposures cau be distinctly seen io
the tteep mountain face on the right
bank of Vermont Creek aud excellent
ore wss obtained from the outcrops
here at the time of the discorery.
Following up lhe divide between Vermont ami Copper Creeks the first exposures appear at a point b'00 lest above
the trail, or about 5,400 feet above sea-
level. The mountain slopes ar an
angle of 45 degrees, affording good facility for development work by tunnelt
or adits and lor the shipping of ore by
gravitation tramway to the valley
beneath. The main leaal has a strike
of 40 degrees west of north.
Development work has been done at
several poiuts on tbe lead and where-
ever opened it shows ore. About halfway up tbe mountain sido a smaller
lead with a strike of north -lo west,
runs into the larger and terminates
near the summit of the mountain iu au
immense chimner of apparently rich
copper ere. This chimney of ore is
about 30 feet across, The main lead
crosses the summit at uu altitude ef
about 8,400 feet, giving 3000 feet of
surface exposures of ledge. The prospector will go a long way to get anything else like it. The main lead lies
between syenite and elate and it about
4 feet in width at its narrowest point,
where the syenite . cuts in on it. . It
runs in average width from eight to
ten feet. On the Copper creek slope
there is one of the finest showings of
copper ore to be teen on this lead that
can be found anywhere. Tbe group
consists of seven claims, tht Copper
King on the Copper Creek elope, the St
Lawrence, Anaconda, Eureka and
Mother Lode, on the Vermont Creek
elope, and the Alice and Blue Bell on
the divide between that and Crystal
Creek. The dip ef thest leads it
nearly vertical, 85, to the south, Tbe

The following letter from Mr. O. A.
Brown, secretary of the Windermere
Mining Association to Mr. Hewitt
Bostock, MP., shows well the promising outlook for the Windermere district :
Windermere, Feb. 10, '99.
Hawrrr Bostook, Esq., M.P.,
Sin,���A�� a meeting of the Windermere Mining Association held here on
tbo 25th of last month, I was directed
to lay before you the viowt and wishes
of the Association in relation to securing tho construction of a telegraph
line between Golden and Windermere.
It had come to the knowledge of the
members that the Golalen Board of
Trade wat moving actively in the matter and they believed that it would be
oxpo'lient to address you earnestly iu
regard thereto. Since the Government
is accustomed to granting approprla
tions for publiu works like this, and
because trade, population, and mining
affairs demand it, tht members of the
Association earnestly desire you to
ute vour utmost endeavors.to induce
the Dominion Government to construct,
or cause to be constructed and operated,
as quickly as possible, a telegraph line
between tbe places uamed above.
This matter is of such vital import
ance that I feel justified iu giving you
at length some of tht reasons why it it
a prime necessity.
Windermere is nearly 100 miles
away from railway and telegraphic
facilities. Trade and population are
fast increasing, and there is much to
warrant the belief tbat they will increase many fold during the present
year. There are in this Mining Division over 800 mineral claims, many of
which are already proved to be valuable properties, and some ot them
genuine bonauzas. Probably more
than half of the whole number are
destined to become paying mines.
Upon these claims the development
work will be performed during the
year, at a cost of at least $80,000.
Many of the claims will be worked
extensively, and much ore transported,
which will involve au expenditure of
probably more than $80,000.
The B. C. Government is providing
for an expenditure of several thousand
dollars upon roads, trails aud bridges
in this division. Several mining towns
are sure to spring up during the year.
In this town of Windermere much
building will lie done, new Government
offices, a school house, lodging houses,
dwellings, ono or more storot and
hotels, nnd some buildings for other
purposes. In addition to uli this it is
safe to pndii-.t tbat during the year the
number of mineral claims in this alivi
tion will he more than doubled. Spring
will bring a great influx of prospectors
and it is possible, if not probable, that
moro than 1.000 mineral claims will be
added to tht number thnt already
gracca this division.
Placer mining here, toe, ie destined
to play a prominent part. There are
thirty-five miles of bars on one stream,
waiting to reward hydraulic workings,
and the bed of the stream itself will
yet have to give up its treasurei. Two
law mills are secured.
Now I am not stating these things
{or buncombe, but am simply saying
what I, as a miner and prospector of
some experience, either know or honestly believe. You ask, why then has
not your Windermere district come to
the front ere this? . I answer-the
country has been new, and transportation and telegraphic facilities have not
been had. Give lis these two things
and miners, prospectors, residents and
capitalists will do the rest.
Now in order to make this division
-what I have stated and predicted for
it, many mining men, speculators, and
capitalists must come, Mott. if not
all, of these will have families or business interests elsewhere; and in prder
that suoh men may be induced to remain here long enough io gain a requisite knowledge of the country; and to
buy, bond, or undertake the development of our properties, tbey must be
given facilities fur communication, at
nay time, with their families, partners
uud agouti at home.
Many a deal it lost because of tho
inability of a would-be-investor to confer with tome one whose consent,
approval, or aid he desires.
Mail facilities ars not what the
business interests of this valley demand. A letter leaving hereon Sunday reaches Golden late Monday evening, usually too late for an answer to
go by the Tuesday morning's mail.
The result is tbat ont week's time it
lost. Under the new arrangement,
which ia abont to taka effect, this
trouble will oot be remedied.
Again, a letter mailed here for soma
distant point Ilk* Vancouver will hart
answers reach here in net last than
eltven dayt, whiltt from more dittant
pointt like Montreal, still another
week's delay ocours. Navigation fa-
cilitiei art of a very unctrtain and unsatisfactory charaoter, "What wonder
th��n that mining affairs bus have not
received tha attention that they merit,
Do what you oan to itcure the
building of the line and you will havt
our luting gratitude.

"Ono Sabbath afternoon I read one
of yeur books, and found that Paint's
Celery Compound had cured many
people. I thought I would try a bottle,
and bought ono that afternoon, and
commenced to take it according to directions. The relief was almost instant.
I continued the use of the Compound,
with the result that I can now sleep
