Major Clolleoy Du.orlboa the BounU

Work Dune on Thuiii��Thu Cliunne
(Tho World.)
Major Clohec.v, of Everett, Wash.,
is a uuest at the Hotel Vancouver, Hn
is a gentleman ol Urge mining experience, having been engaged for io years
in tIiut great industry in tbo United
Stale*. He arrived yesterday fmm
Victoria, his visit there ll living been
for tho purpose ot interviewing the
Govorninont ou tlio qu.sllon ol building a wagon roud from Golden to several mines in which lie is interested in
East Kootenay. Instead of paying SB7
pur ton for ii'uiiS|iortutiou of ore as ut
present, the building of the roud would
reduce the cost to only a low dollars.
In conversation with a representative of the World last night the Major
said that about two years ago lie visited the Golden district aud us a result
the Idaho and Alaska claims on Copper Creek, the Crown Point in McMurdo Basin, and tlio Boston claim on
the Selkirk Divide were secured by
him. On his return homo to Washington he' interested in the venture
several American and English capitalists and the Kootenay Consolidated
Company, a close corporation of live
members, was formed to work the properties. The work of the coiiij any lias
been carried ou in a thoroughly business like manner under the superintendence of Major Cloln-cy, and has consisted of extensive development ou
each of the company's properties.
So far the most of tho work lias
been done on the Beunisou group,
which gives every promiso of turning
out very satisfactorily. The mineral
indications in this pint of the country
form an extraordinary feature of the
locality. Hundreds of tons of float
consisting of galena, gray copper und
quartz, can he seen all around and appear to have come from the denudation of the big vain of the Boston.
List year a irinl shipment of IU Ions
was packed out under great difficulties
from the Boston*claim and it gave a
return cf $io per ton from the Everetl
smelter, The average assays are about
SH.'l to the ton. Tlio oro was gray cop-
l-er and was t.ikeu out of an
open cut made 150 feet holoiv the sum
mit. Nine veins run piu-Hliel on the
Boston and they are from two and a
half to 12 feet wido. Mr. Susmati,
Canadian Paoilio expeit, and Mr.
Hnrdmnii, Professor of Mineralogy
of McGill University, both speak
very highly of tlio property, tho former
stilting that it contained the largest
body of ore of the kind that he hud
ever seen.
Incidentally Major Clohec.v spokn of
the propeilies owned by the Chaniie
Mining Co., of Vancouver. He made
diligent inquiries about them, because
he was interested in any development
work going on in the vicinity, and
had heard trustworthy and very fluttering statements of the prnspiTiii of
the company's claims. One man who
had u record tor caution and truthfulness told him that the development
work on the Clianno properties bad
disclosed conditions so favorable that
he acknowledged himself much surprised.

"In a manner which warrants its
being dealt with, ,\et nor specific
enough to cull correal, comes tlm rumor to tho Mail, that thu redistribution measure proposed by the Government in ty include Donald ami Uohb-ii
-portions of N. East Kootenav with N.
West Kootenay proper. While there
would he ni thing lint welcome for E.ist
Kootenaians in any scheme lor mutual
advantage, the Mail believes that this
proposal, if correct, is not one of thnt
nature, and feels su.e the E ist Kootenaians concerned will take the same
view of it, Their addition to us would
mean, probably, the loss of Trout Lake
&ud Lardeau divisions with which we
are closely related ami which we will
not. relinquish without a struggle, If
it does not mean the loss of those divisions or other territory, then there
is no need to put North East Kootenay
into this riding as it has already sufficient voter* registered to eutltld it to a
member. If North East Kootenay is
added to our already large riding it
will be very unfair if two members are
hot. given to it. unfair on the basis of
membership now accorded io Lilluoe',
Cariboo and oilier places. There are
now about H.'iO registered voters ami
applications to vote, iu f.e Revelstoke
utttce, which is nearly twice as many
as has thet'ariboo wilh lis I women-hers,
and more than Cassia r, East and West
Lillooet aud S.anh N.nminio, with four
members between them, can tutal up
together. Where then is the justice
or point in adding N. E. Kootenay'*
vote to this, when it is already large
enough to claim its own representative.
N. E. Kootenay, too, has grievance
in this respect. It has already, we are
credibly informed, 6i)Q voters. This
is more than Cariboo has with two
members,doublfi what Casslar has with
one, more than Cowichan Alherui with
two, aud Esquimau with two (scrotal
other oxainples could be given of inequality J and if these constituencies
deserve representation in the legislature surely Ni E. Kootenay docs even
still more so.
'But apart from numerical facts
altogether, 'herd isauotherreason why
these districts should havesep.raie
representation, that is the question of
dissimilarity or divergence of interests.
The interests ol these two -ections are
entirely apart. That of Golden and
Djuald is dirocte I and extended to its
main artery uf Traile, the north Columbia-Root en uy valley, that o I Revel -
stoke to its c injections north and
south in the Columbia Arrow Like
valley. Of course each centre has its
trails, area of east and west, but the
main interests of each place is not across tne divide, or not one with the
other,hut lies with enllrely different peo-
plesand centres. There is not hing much
in common in trade or influence he
tweirU Revelstoke aud Golden Donald
sections, their spheres are different ami
they are each sufficiently largo and in-
llueiitial euough to he given recognition by representation in a House containing many members from aniticial
and unnecessary constituencies, The

A Home Treatment,  known ns th.
Dyke Cure, by which Every Victim of Jntumperunee can b.
Permanently Cared.
FRIDAY, MARCH 18,  1898.
We are informed on pretty good
minority that tha Turner-Pooley
combination propose as one of the features of their redistribution policy, to
amalgamate the North East Kootenay
and Nort West Kootenay districts in
one electorate, That would mean that
the Nakiisu district, which properly
belongs to Revelstoke, would be cut off
from there and added :o one of the
southern constituencies of West Kootenay. Golden and ihe Columbia Valley
would be joined with Revelstoke,
when the two districts have no interest in common whatever. The interests of Revelsti'ke lie in the valleys to
the south and north. The same applies to Golden, and it is utterly ridiculous to combine in an electoral
district interests of so varied a character. We ure informed that the object ot the move is, if possible, to
secure a seat for Col. Baker at the
coming elections; but the resort to
such trickery is not the way to gain
further support to this Government in
its corrupt policy. It must rather
have the effect of alienating support
they would otherwise have. Such a
policy could only have a serious effect
on this part of the district and would
mean practically its dis-enfranchise-
ment, No*, that the Govern.ent would
take that into consideration it it answered their purposes, but to the people of Golden and Donald, and to the
surrounding district, it is a very seii
ous matter- It means making all this
district tributary to Revelstoke, and
against this every man who has a
soul ot his own ought tokick - aud that
most vigorously. If the report of this
move proves to be true, public meetings
ought to be held at Donald and Gol
den and every step taken to checkmate it in the interest of the people
and of their district.
It transpires that the Provincial
Parliament resolution that a Committee should be appointed to consider the
best means of obtaining cheap capital
for farmers required the consent of the
Turner Government before it could be
adopted, and Premier Turner blocked
it by refusing consent. Thnt gentleman
made a speech on the occasion which
brands him as either grossly ignorant
ot the first principles of statesmanship
or as making a deliberate attempt to
mislead the House and the people. He
said there were a dozen different industries as important to the Province as
agriculture. In this hs goes directly
against the consensus ot opinion of the
economists and of statesman who
have made it ti.eir business to study
this matter. He then went on to tell
tho House of the failure of the pol cy
in New Zealand, forgetting to tell the
truth, tbat the policy had been such a
boon   not  ouly  to the farmers but to
Fonght Catarrh for Fifty Tears.
Eighty Years ol Age When Victory Came���
Dr. Agnew'a Catarrhal Powder the One
George Lewis, of Shamokin, Pa., says: "1
was troubled with catarrh for 50 years. I am
80 years old, 1 used a groat many catarrh
remedies, but Dr. Agnew's i atarih.il Powder
was the one medicine that gave immediate
relief and cured me of the disease." At Ottawa, U. M. >iorlhrop, a prominent member

John Ross, the well known railway
contractor, died suddenly.
The above would make a very appropriate advertisement ot enquiry as
to where the public estate has gone
and is going. A return presented to
the Provincial Parliament on the motion ot Mr, Williams, M. P. P. gives
some astounding revelations. It shows
that clote ou eight million acres ot
public estate have been given away to
railway charier-mongers, and another
two millions applied for and to be given no doubt in dun course. Nearly
four million acres alone were given to
the Columbia and Western Railway,
only 187 miles in length, and the reservation fot Col. Baker's pet job, the

there no patriotism or public spirit in
the people of the Province when such
scandalous appropriations of the public estate are made to the friends of the
Government without protest? How
long is a continueiice of this polioy to
he tolerated? Can the people not see
that it means a sorry day for British
Columbia iu the future, and that this
policy is the hatching ground ot those
monopolies which will arise and at
tempt to crush ihe people, resulting in
labor troubles and riots such as tlio
United States hns weltered in of late
years as the product of a similar
The Nelson Tribune says: "The
Province has a very wily set of financiers at the helm ot state. When the
fiscal returns were presented to the
Legislature, there was shown a deficit
ol something like 8300,000. It has
since been discovered that these figures
should have been doubled, as the public accounts comities last week showed
up an overdraft oft 190,IM. which hns
encroached upon this year's revenue.
Instead, therefore, of having money
to go upon, the Province is met with a
most serious deficit. It was policy
tor Mr. Turner and his colleagues to
present as flashy a balance sheet ss
possible, bat his "cooked" accounts
have been ruthlessly exposed. He hss
thus been robbed of an important item
with which he hoped to tickle the
electorate in the approaching elections.''
Refering to Chinese labor in coal
mines tho Nelson Tribune ssys: "The
Dunsmuirs, or in fact any similar corporation, may break the law at will,
knowing that punishment cannot be
meted out to ihem. No oilier country
can expose a similar situation, and the
wonder is the island has been bulldozed so long. Signs multiply, however,
that the constituencies will swing into
line with those of the mainland and
condemn the careless law-givers the
next balloting."

These symptoms are by no means trivial,
and are indicative of disorders that may
lead to consumption, nervous prostration,
malarial troubles or some serious blood
disease. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best of all medicines for men
and women who suffer in this way. It re-
stores the lost appetite; it gives sweet, refreshing sleep; makes the digestion perfect,
the liver active and purifies and enriches
the blood. It is the neatest of all nerve
tonics. It is the great blood-maker and
flesh-builder.   It cures 08 per cent, of all
cases of consumption, weak lungs, bron
chltls, spitting of blot	
and kindred ailments.

It is also an unfail

Dear Sir,- In reply to your enquiry
regarding my knowledge of the Dyke
cure for Intemperance, I have to say
that it was brought under my notice
about a year ago, and I specially interested myself in a number of cuses that
were treated by it. In some of thein
the results were remarkable, several
parties who were confirmed inebriates
becoming entirely changed and remaining till tho present time sober and useful citizens. Several other parties
treated at the same time I have lost
sight of. but do not personally know
of a case out of half a dozen in which
the treatment was not successful.
With best wishes, I remain,
Yours, sincerely,

To New Subscribers to "The Province."
'���The Province" claims that it has the largest circulation west ot Winnipeg, and that claim has never been questioned or challenged. It is now
letermined if moriev and energy can do it. to increase its circulation until it
can prove that it lias THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN CANADA. To
attain this object the directors have arranged with The Province Publishing
Company, Limited Liability, for the supply of
One Hundred Thousand Copies flmiS* Map of the Klondyke
To every NRW suscriber who sends ��1.00 to "Tho Province," Victoria or
Vancouver, Canada's onlv high cluss weekly, "The Province," will send for
one year from the date the subscription is received to any address in Canada
or the United States (United Kingdom $1.00 extra), together with one copy of
the above map.    The map has never been sold for less   than   Fifty   Cents or
The Province" for less than a Dollar. Bv taking advantage ��( this unprecedented offer, whi^h is only possible in the case of New Subcribers who
enclose their money with their order, they get the two for the price of one.
This offer will be withdrawn as soon as the special edition of one hundred
thousand codpiea is exhausted. It is the must generous offer ever made by
any newspaper in any part of the world to obtain new subscribers. Every
subscription booked under this arrangement means a direct loss to the publishers, cut a large circulation means more advertising at better rates, and in
this way "The Province" hopes to make good tho deficit. Send 81.CO to "The
