SATURDAY, M'C'H 20, 1897.
Some two or three weeks ago it was
suggested  in  these columns  that a
Hoard of Trade should be organised in
Golden and we are glad to learn that
the  proposal   has   met with a hearty
reception   by the business men of the
place.     The Town Committee which
i'or-some years past has done efficient,
work for the place and district will on
the 24th instant wind up its business
affairs and thus render necessary the
formation   of  some  new association
representative of the business interests
oi   the plane, which association shall
be  charged   with the duty of  taking
action   upon   public matters affecting
our  local interests.     No time should
be lost in  calling a public  meeting of
business  men to make  arrangements
for the formation of a good live Board
of Trade as there are various questions
of  vital  interest to Golden, likely to
arise within a very short time.     The
rapid development of the district will
be the means of raising  new public
question*   from  time  to time and no
body ef  men in tb*  district,can command  such   influence  as  a Board of
Trade made up of  representative business men who know best the needs of
the district.
* * .
Mining associations are being formed
all over the Province and it occurs to
us that on* section of the proposed
new Board of Trade might well be
made up of the men in the Golden and
Donald mining divisions who are devoting their time and oapital to the
development of the mineral resources
of these districts. The necessity aud
advantages of such an association of
mining men must be seen by every oue.
At the present time there is no person
in the vicinity to whom an investor
can apply to obtain tbat information
which is requisite to enable him to
form a proper estimate of the extent of
the mineral deposits of this part of the
mineral deposits of this part of the
country or the amount of development
work that has been accomplished.
Such   an   association   as that mentioned   might   be of  great  benefit tu
themselves aud this milling district if
thej* would establish in some convenient  and central place in Golden, and
under the care of  some good man, an
office or room where specimens of all
the  ores found   iu the district can be
exhibited   to  the   public and   where
owners of mining properties can leave
full particulars of  their various properties  together with copies of  assay
certificates, reports, etc.    At the present time we find mine owners offering
their properties for sale and expecting
people to buy them although they cannot furnish sample* of the ore for assay   purposes, nor  can   they furnish
assay  certificates,   the same having,
through carelessness been lost or mislaid.     The  establishment ot such an
office and tb* collection of  all this information  would assist materially in
the  disposition   of  the propertlet bv
sale or  development.     We ar* on the
eve of  a great boom in East Kootenay
and the  McMurdo district and one or
two other* an the "hope" of .Golden.
The Local Legislature is "pegging
away" down yonder at Victoria putting through a few private bills which
give away the water rights of the Province to anybody who has cheek
enough to ask for them, also passing
some acts to clean up certain ��� 'ambiguities" which seem to have crept into
earlier acts of the Legislature which
partake of much the same nature as
those above referred to.
* *
The wise and sensible motion of Mr.
Forsteij, in  the Local House, has been
ruled  but of  order by the Speaker as
contemplating the expenditure of public money.   The purport of t'.ie motion
was that the Dominion, either by herself or with the assistance of the Province, should build and control a railway from the coast to the Crow's Nest
Pass; or  otherwise the Province with
the assistance of the Dominion should
build   and  control the railway.   The
House seems to have acquiesced in Mr.
Speaker's ruling.   His ruling was cer
tainly the most effective way of breaking all discussion on a subject which
is so essential to the well-being of the
people  and  to  the prosperity of  the
Province.     The  ruling-may be in accordance  with precedent, or the rules
of the House.     If  either, the sooner
precedent   is  destroyed and the rules
alterod  the  better  it   will be for the
freedom of discussion. '  The more wc
consider  the ruling the more puzzled
we are to understand the reason,---"the
expenditure of  public money."    Why
tnat should have been the most powerful   reason   for  the discussion in the
House.   It may be unparliamentary to
differ  or  dissent   from the Speaker's
ruling, but when ruling i* inedplicable
to  tbe  lay mind we may be pardoned
for expressing some surprise,
We were puzzled at a similar ruliug
when a petition for the establishment
of a Land Registry office for West
Kootenay was presented to the House.
We knew something was wrong somewhere and very properly blamed the
member for presenting an incompetent
petition. But are ail petitions and
resolutions incompetent when import*
ant business affecting the people's welfare is attempted to be brought iuto
the House bv either ot these methods,
If this be so, it is time there were a
drastic change.
We  could  understand
" hands of building railways and colonization roads between Parry Sound
"and James Buy, and all along the
"North Shore.

above statements���some of which we
do not admit���we enquire how stands
British   Columbia  in   regard to the
Dominion?   Our   Province gives  far
more to the Dominion than shs receives
in return,   If all tbe revenue collected
in our Province were retained for its
use, there would be ro need of subsidies from the Dominion. *  Part of the
revenue contributed bv us hat gone to
develop the resources of Ontario and
why should there be abjections to more
of that revenue being paid back  to us
to enable us to develop - ouu. mineral
wealth.   British Columbia i* the largest province in the Dominion and promises soon to be the richest and most
prosperous.    We do not want any aid
from Ontario, but we want soiue of j
our revenue paid back to us -so us 'o
develop -and the more we develop the
greater will be our revenue.   Has- Ontario become jealous  of her Western
Sister?   If there is to be rivalry,  let
it be the rivalry of friendly emulation.
Bust Kootenay Mine..
Mr. W. Pellew Harvey of Vancouver, a graduate of the Cornish School
of Mines iu England, whs interviewed
in Toronto by the Globe and among
other things Mr. Harvey said:
"East Kootenay," "has been very
much neglected in the past, as there
are undoubtedly vast bodies of ore
there which will sooner or later"he the
means of adding considerably to the
wealth of those who nre lucky enough
to get iu ami ��� rocure properties at a
time when they can be acquired at a
reasonable cost. The hick of lacilties
for transportation hns stood in the way
of more rapid development. This, however, will be overcome by tho building
of such lines as the Crow's Nest Pass
and, whether th* line is built by tbe
C. P. R. or the government, the liene*
fits derived by the owners of properties
will be enormous.
'It is in East Kootenay,' continued
Mr. Harvey, ��� that the great coal field*
are located. These have to be looked
to as a most important factor for cheap
smelting in East ami West Kootenay,
and the Crow's Nest Puss railway will
be the means ol opening np these fields
and laying down coal, and cuke where
it is wanted."

another case of the same kind of gloves

__*"�����; A Senator Fer Kootenay.
The following is from the Mining
Record:   "If rumor is to be relied
upon there will be a vacant senator-
ship   in  thi*  province  before long.
Should this turn out to be the case we
desire to point out to the Government
that tbe representation of British Columbia in parliament is not equally divided. The Coast get* tbe lion's share.
Viotoria has two members in the Commons, Nanaimo one, Vancouver oue,
New Westminster one, and the great
district of Yale*Cariboo only one:    In
the Senate there are  two   from the
Coast  and  one  from  Cariboo,    but
Kootenay is entirely left out in the
cold.   So far as the Commons is con
corned tliere can hardly bo a change
made in the representation until after
the next census, and this will nieau
practically that Yale-Cariboo will have
to get along with one member for tbe
next ten years.   Yet during that time
tb* population of Kootenay alone bids
fair to more than double tbat of all the
other sections of the province put together.   We see, then, before ua an injustice, being done an important district
which apparently cannot be remedied
for  years  to  come.   The  Dominion
Government, however, has it in ita
power, if it to desires, to grant a par*
t al remedy whioh,  although  not all
tl.at conld be desired, would be better
than nothing. When a vacancy occurs
iu the senatorial representation of this
province, let the position be given to a
Kootenay man.   This would leave one
Senator for the Coast, one for Cariboo
aud one for Kuoienuy- a fair division.
To appoint a Senator (rom the Coast
would be au injustice to Kootenay,
whicu to-day is one of the most important sections of British Columbia-
one whiuh will have more population
and produce more wealth during the
next few years than all the ortier parts
oi the province combined.    We would
like to sea this questiou takeu up by
the people and press of Kootenay so
that tbe  Dominion  Government  may
be made .fully aware of public feelii'g
on the subject."
No���Kootenay doesn't want any
Senators aud the whole country can
get along very nicely without them
and save the expenditure uf half a
million dollars a year. There are too
many .Senators already -There are not
enough members of the House of Common*. Kootenay needs more repre
sentatives of her people-A Senator is
not .responsi ule to tbe people-He
doesn't care a " hang" for the people
He represents the Government that ap<
point* Iiiiu. Instead of Yule-Cariboo
having oue representative iu the Coin
mom she should have three or four.
If the Mining Record will explain what
earthly ute the S.mator is we might la
inclined to argue the question as to
how many Kootenay ought to have,
At the same time the Record might ex
plain of what earthly use are a lot ol
them who are now in tbe Senate.
Somo time ago a deputation of Railway men waited on some of thu Ottawa
authorities and asked that they la-
given repi-eseiiiution in the Senate.
The reply wus ������ what good can we do
you in the Senate ir1 If yo i want a
man in.a place where ho cun be of use
to you elect him tu tbe House of Commons.

Reg-istmr General. Langly A Co.. Wholesale Druggists,
Victoria and Vancouver, desire us to
{lublish tho following extract from A
etter of Cliaa. M- Gutfeld, ol Beedloy.
Fresno Co., Cal., as lie handles the
���remedy referred to and wants his customers to know what a splendid medicine it is:
"It is with pleasure I tell you that
by one day's use of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy 1 was relieved of a very
severe cold. My head was completely
stopped up and I could not sleep at
night. I can recommend this remedy.
A oold nearly always starts in the head
and afterwards extends to the throat
���nd lungs. By using this remedy
freely as soon ns the cold has been contracted it will oure the oold at once and
prevent it from extending to the lungs,
The East Kootenay Mining and Developing Company have acquired by
bond and purchase, several valuable
properties on Perry crook, Bull antl
Elk rivers. Mr. D, W. Jackson, representing the company is preparing
to commence work us soon ns possible
on the Purry creek properties. ���Prospector.
The annual report of tho Canadian
Pacific Hallway Company whicli wus
issued last week contains the following
reference to the construction of the
Crow's Nest Pass railway j The directors feel that they cannot too
strongly urge the immediate construction of n line from Lethbridge to u
connection with your Columbia and
Kootenuy railway at Nelson, a distance of .125 miles, and, anticipating
your approval,they have already taken
stops towards tho commencement ol
the work at the opening of the spring.
Yonr directors confidently expect reasonable assistance at the hands of the
Dominion government,
There is nothing which indicates the
rapid growth of business in Kootenay
so strongly as the spread of banking
institutions throughout the country.
Rossland, Trail, Nelson, Kaslo, Snndon
New Denver, Kamloops and now Revelstoke all have brunches of great Canadian banks established. The Bank
of Montreal, Bank of British Columbia
Bank of British North America and
Imperial Bank appear to be vieing with
each other which will get in first. No
sooner is the branch of one bunk established than another soon follows,
and as bankers are generally conservative in their mode ol doing business
and do not go where trade will not
warrant it, the conclusion whicli may
be safely reached is that our mining
towns ure ut present in a very prosperous condition.���Record.
The Toronto Weekly Sun says: '-In
the meantime, what is the necessity ?
Why should Canadians be further impoverished to build the Crow's Nest
Pass Railway? So fur all that has
been claimed is that it is necessary to
enable our merchants and manufacturers to secure the growing trade of the
mining.camps, that the mining camps
may draw supplies of potatoes aud
flour from the district about Lethbridge
that it will bring to the mining camps
a kind of coal suitable for making coke
which is now brought all the way
from England, that it will open up a
district, of great miueral wealth, and
that it will counteract or destroy the
American influence in that region now
established." What is that but the
old spirit that has been keeping Canada in the background fer decades past?
We are not only doing business ou a
back street with the shutters up us
well. ���Freo Press.
Southern East Kootenay has been
only partly prospected and that in only
the more easily accessible sections. A
number of very prominent properties
have been located, some indicating
enormous richness. Prospectors who
bave been in that section for several
years say that vast areas have uot
been explored, although enough is
known of the surrounding country to
convince thorn that the interior offers
tbe venturesome prospoctor rich rewards. Tba routs of the proposed
Crow's Nest Pass railway passes
through this section and, iu anticipation of its speedy construction, there
will unquestionably be a widespread
exploration of that district. Tlie great
difficulty that attends even the partial
development of claims already located
(��� the lack cf trails. Most of the trails
Already opened owe their existence to
the independent work of industrious
find determined prospectors. Thus far
the government has expended only a
few hundred dollars. There can be
no doubt that this large and practically unexplored section offers remarkable inducements to prospectors.���

What They ask for,
We will send freo of charge to any

useful and valuable articles :
A desk tablet in leatherette with lead
pencil, calender and adjustable writing
block, elegantly stamped in gold.
A leathor pocket match case with
brass striker.
A 100 page alligator leather memorandum book, gilt edged and ruled.
A leather and celluloid cigar case,

An elegant canvas; corered pocket

memorandum book.
Aa a compensation we only ask, if
you are a resilient of a town or village
containing the number of inhabitants
mentioned below, to send the names of
merchants who deal in clothing or Dry
Goods and from whom you nro utiable
to obtain Shorey's mako of clothing or
Rigby Waterproof Cloth or Clothing.

1200 inhabitants send 2 names,
From a village or town of 1200 to
6000 inhabitants send il names.
From a village or town of (iOUO or
over inhabitants send 4 names.
Our reason for making this offer is
that as a consequence of making n
superior class of clothing a demand
has been created ior our goods, and it
has been claimed that it was sometimes
impossible for people to get our make
from their dealers who probably could
make more profit by selling an inferior
class of goods. We wishto investigate the matter and intend arranging
that everyone shall be able to obtain
Shorey's Guaranteed Clothing, uo matter in how obscure or out-of-the-way
place they mny reside.

Conditions  In Britain,
In the Globe appears the following
paragraph: " Mr. D. D. Mannn, a Montreal contractor, who has just returned
from England, states that iu Manchester be found workmen so scarce that it
was difficult to procure labor. As his
business was in connection with the
Manchester railway he should know
the condition of the British labor market. According lo paotection theories
the British workman should all bo idle
through the influx of foreign goods.
Tbe trouble with such theories is that
they never lit the facts." Reports from
"the Old Country" generally agree
in stating that the industrial condition
there is good nnd the unemployed
scarce, in which respect they differ
materially from the reports from the
protected United States. It may be
well to note further that said reports
indicate a small imigration from Britain during the current year, and therefore a small increase to Canada's
population from that source. Canadians, however, are not. so selfish as tn
feel regret if a wave oi prosperity keeps
the British workiiigntuti (rom leuviug
his own country.
Au English company now seeks to
develope the Yukon country on a large
scale, if they can como to terms with
the government. A bill of incorporation will be asked from Pui-litinient
with power to do a general trading
and transportation business, The company does not ask financial assistance
from the government, except what is
implied in a guarantee of ii per ceut ou
a million dollars' worth of bonds.' No
monopoly is intended, although the
development plans of tho company include the construction of many miles
ef railway. They will utilize tho
White Mountain Pass to gain access to
tbe country,
