S. Adler on being interview-oil nt the
Kootenay House said: ''I have been
in the Parsnip River country and the
Omenion. When they talk about tiold
in Penco river that must hs the locality they moan as there Is no -told east
of the Rocky Mountains. The Peace
River begins where the Parsnip and
Findlay River join. The Parsnip
River is as big as the Columbia. That
is a wonderful country for gamo���
fowl, moose and bear, while the rivers
are also stocked with large trout, I
am certain that the country is Im-
mensly rich for gold. As good Duds
will be got there and in tho Cassiar
district as in the Yukon. I have seen
lumps of gold taken out there from
Defoe Creek weighing as much ns 16
to IT ounces nud the gold was such in
Walker Creek that after putting it
through the sluice boxes and panning
it out, it was so porous that if you ran
your hands through the wash you
could press it together with the points
ol yonr fingers, which would be covered with gold. This shows lhat the
gold was not water worn and could
not have travelled, but had evidently
been deposited there from the wearing
down of honey-combed quartz. I
have never seen the- like of it
anywhere else. Near Dease River the
gold was of such higli.'-uality that it
was worth 119 to $22 per- ounce, but
the curious thing was that as you
went higher up the creeks the qunlity
became inferior and diminished in
quantity. Let me add that Irani what
I have seen of the country there the
Stickeen route to Tesliu Luke is far
ahead ol any other of the coast
C. Wilson, who has been up the
Canoe River by what the Revelsioke
Herald describes as "tlie Gulden Era
air line," says "I know the country
as far as St. George on the Frnser
River. It is only 20 miles from Canoe
River to Tete Jamie Cache and u
stream and valley run nearly all the
way so that thero are no mountains io
cross. The route suggested is the only
really good moans of communication
inland with the Yukon as the country
is good Lravclliuu, whereas tlio ro.nl
round by Edmoton is bad travelling,
that country consisting nf so much
swamp and muskeg, while it is about
twice the distance compared with the
way up the Columbia Valley."      .
J. Barr, who has had a lot of experience in the Rocky Mountains said:
"The Moberly trail goes aa far as
Wood River and is a capital line ol
road. There is only one really bad
place In it and that is near Wood
River, where there ia a slide whicli
would require to be cleaned out eiv-r.
spring. The trail runs about three
miles up Wood River to clear the
canyon. The Canoe River comes in ��
little above Wood River, and from
there to Tete Jamie Cache It is about
90 miles, being 14 miles aero-a from
Csnoe tivor to Tete Jaune Cache Up
Canoe River the country is a wide
open valley-1 think about ten miles
wide, and easy traveling. From
Oolden to Tete Jaune Cache there is
no trouble in the world. I estimate
the distance from Oolden to Tete
Jaune Cache at 170 miles. It is '100
miles from Edmonton to 'fete Jamie
Cache and the country is swampy and
bad to travel, whereas you have a
good dry trail by the Columbia and
Canoe River. Thu Canoe River is the
best river for the length of it that I
bave ever seen for travelling by. Tliere
would be no rock cutting whatever in
making a read up there. The river .8
alao good for boats. I hava taken IWO
pounds up Canoe River without uny
difficulty. 1 thiuk a trail could be cut
tn connect Moberly trail with Canoe
River for ISO a mile and a good wagon
road would probably cost about $7C0
to $800 a mile. II the Government
wont do It let the people raise the money
to open the road. 1 will give $60 towards It myself snd shall be glad to
give all the assistance In my power."
J. DOIj-AO-'h opinion.
J. Dolmage said: "I know the
way round both from Edmonton to
Tete Jaune Cache and also that along
the Columbia and Canoe Rivera, to
Tete Jaune Cache. I travelled both
these ways in 18811, having gone from
Edmonton to Tete Jaune Cache and
then down Canoe River and thence to
Revelstoke. Part ol the way from
Edmonton Is good aud part is low
lying marshy country very bad to gel
over. The country down Canoe River
is excellent for travelling and a splendid road cau be got by that way
at little cost. Then again the road
from Oolden to Canoe River would
have this advantage-that It is only
about hall tbe distanos ol ths road
(rom Edmonton, whioh ts a vsry round
about way."  '
M. Carlin said: "I know the Edmonton ronte to Tete Janne Cache well aud
bave travailed that way. Is It a
wretchedly bad road. From what I
have seen ol the proposed vvav by
Canoe River I think an excellent road
cau be gut that way,"
In proof of tbe above statements it
is stated by a Winnipeg paper that the
large party which recently set out
from Edmonton has had to turn back.

They are highly pleased with the

a ton upwards and tbey state that the
tests showed beyond doubt that the
ore is free milling. If this is so it is
the first true free milling strike that
has heen made in East Kootenay; It is
therefore most important. Twenty

Miss This Opportunity!
Wo have on several occasions drawn
atlention to llie mischief that in likely
to he done by   the  demonetisation   of
silver,   and   to   the fact that British
Columliiu must be a  terrible   sufferer
by   such  a policy.    Still so dense and
blind is the ignorance of many on this
important subject that   they   ridicule
any   attempt   that   is   being made to
draw public attention to the question.
Level headed men like the directors ol
the  Bank of England nre alive to the
mischief of demonetising silver and   it
is   with pleasure that we see they are
prepared to do their share towards devising   a remedy by proposing to hold
one fifth of the bank's reserve in silver.
This will do much to break down   the
senseless prejudice that exists against
the white metal.   The Salt Lake Tribune puts the matter very well when it
says:    "Our   belief is that the money
powers of the .vorld will very soon he
obliged to retnonetise silver   at   some
ratio.    It   will   be   that  or a crash
which   will   convulse   the    business
world.    Tho reason   why is   that as
men lose faith in the ultimate restoration uf silver thn white inetul will continue to decline until there will   come
a  grand   scramble  to unload tlie old
stocks of silver, and prices   generally
of   all  products   will  follow the gold
basis, aud then tbere   will   be   chaos
and   general   repudiation.   The   rich
men of this world cannot stand an upheaval of that kind.   The most  conservative statisticians   estimate   that
half   the yearly product of gold is absorbed in the arts.   Some insist   thut
nem-ly alt is used up that   way.     But
if  it   were   not so, the whole.au.ount
reliance and the cessation of borrowing
of any kind. With such a wealthy
territory na that of the Dominion we
say advisedly that there should be the
necessity for neither a loan policy nor
a deficit. The income should be arranged to meet the expenditure and
should not be exceeded unless temporarily under extreme conditions. The
debt is already so large that it will
take more than half the customs
duties to pay the annual interest on
it, and if it grows at the rate of .the
present year we shall find that it will
absorb the whole of the customs and
there will be no available means of
carrying on public works, The Star
says: "The total amount voted in
connection with the public debt Is
$13,016,857, which leaves less than
six millions of revenue from customs
for use in defraying the running expenses of tbo Dominion. Of this, the
Provincial subsidies alone demand no
less than $4,239,600; thus reducing
the amount of the customs collections
available for Federal purposes to about
a million and three-quarters, Now
the point of Importance in this connection is that tbe public debt Is still
growing. The sufficiently grave
situation indicated above lias not
made our political masters afraid to
increase the debt with light hearts.
Some years ago the then Oovernment
had a lucid interval when it declared
its policy to be that henceforth tbe
country must live within its income.
But the pressure of those who think
no more of a non-spending Government than the toper does of an emtpy
whisky bottle was too strong, and
the merry round game of borrow and
spend went on. It has not been
checked since."
The prospects of Oolden and' the
Columbia Valley were never better
than they are today. Good news
comes in from all sections of the mining districts as the result of more extended development work. The farmers have had good crops. Two firms
of English capitalists are arranging to
put into East Kootenay, in time for
next spring, ample capital for the development of every prospect in the district that justifies further expenditure,
and both of these companies will have
their head-quarters at Golden.
Then there is the fact that the
Columbia Valley and its extensions
form the nearest and best route to the
Yukon gold fields, with rioh oountry
on the way. It seems pretty oertain
that the Dominion Government will
make their proposed wagon road to
the Yukon from Tete Jaune Cache,
and whether Kamloops, Reyelstoke or
Edmonton is favored as the connecting point in preference to Donald,
the Columbia Valley route has the
advantage of the Moberly trail to
Canoe River, leaving only 80 miles to
connect with the Dominion road at
Tete Jaune Cache. In such a case
private enterprise would go in and
make that connecting road and so
secure to the Columbia Valley the
traffic which must in the nature of
things seek tbe shortest and best route
to the railway.

It is high time that we spoke with
no uncertain sound as regards the
way the Provincial Government are
neglecting the means of communication
to the mining ceitres of tbis part of
East Kootenay. Mr. Wattelet and
the Golden and Fort Steele Company
have now shipping mines at Bugaboo
but owing to bad means of access
they cannot get ore nut at anything
like reasonable cost. The shipment of
ore which Mr. Wattelet is making to
JEvere-t will cost him $100 a ton, of
���liich $35 is for transportation
from the mine to the Columbia River.
We have also to point out the
necessity that exists for a good wag-
road being made into the
Spillimachene country, especially to
tap the head of the middle and north
forks. Another place where a road
is urgently required is up the Beaver
Valley to give access to Pra.rie Mountain, Healey, Logan, and Bennison
creeks. There haa been a good deal of
work done up tliere this season nnd
the mineral wealth of that country
is proved beyond doubt.   These roads
Among other reforms that the Cabinet that will replace the Turner Government must bring about is the reorganization of the Provincial
Surveyor's office. This branch of the
public service s-ema to be in a hopeless muddle. A case has been brought
under our notice where it took something like four years for tbe survey ot
a farm to get through this slough of
despond, and much the sume trouble
seems to be experienced in regard to
mining claims. The department require a plan of adjoining claims and
ought to supply copies of these when
nsked to do so. Instead of this they
refer surveyors at this end of the district to tho office at Donald, and the
plnns are not there either. This
necessitates no end of annoyance aud
loss of time. As a matter of fact the
Surveyor-General seems to know very
little about the details of his department and has yet to learn that be is a
servant ol the public and bound to
meet tlie public convenience. It is
time there was a Minister at the head
of affairs wbo would put this department on a different footing which
would ensure prompt and civil attention to the public business.
When a crime is committed, no matter
in what corner of the earth tbe criminal
tries to hide, he knows that probably
somewhere or other on the look-out is a
detective waiting to lay his hand on him.
When any
disease attacks mankind and
hides ttaell
in the human system,
no matter
how obscure
or complicated the
disease may
be, Nature
among her
great force
of detective
remedies hss
one that will
hunt down
tnd arrest
that partlc-
���������hhm-   - liar disease.
Lung and bronchial disease, are among
the most baffling complaints which doctors haveto deal with; because it isn't the
lunga or bronchial tubes alone which are
affected, but every corner of the system
furnishes a lurking pluce for these elu*
rrive maladies.
They change and reappear and dodge
about the system under numberless dis*
f-uiscB. They are almost always complicated with liver or stomach troubles, nervousness, neuralgia, or " general debility.''
The test detective remedy which Nature tans provided to search out and arrest
these perplexing ailments is Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. It lays an arresting hand directly upon the poisonous,
paralyzing elements hiding in the liver
aud digestive organs.

The action ol the Bank of Ergland
in announcing its intention to hold
fifth of its reserve in silver conditionally, has hud the effect of restoring
the white metal and reviving its price.
The decision of the bank, if given
effect to, will do more to reunite the
interests of the British Empire than
any net of statemanship. It is a
practical demonstration of tbe policy
of the Bunk to endeavor to secure a
more stable condition of things. Of-
course The Times and other English
newspapers which are but the tools
and mouthpieces of Lombard and
Wall streets, are raving because they
see in this an attempt to break down
the monopoly possessed by the
power of gold. Notwithstanding this
the Bank will have the support of by
fsr the greater portion of the Britiah
Empire in the policy which it bus so
pluokily announced in the (soe of the
powerful opposition whioh the directors must have known would be hurled about their heads.

a great deal of iriorrcv. Had three doctors
treating me. My throat ulcerated, and I
lost my voice. Could sca-cely taIk eo a
person could understand me. The doctors
called thc trouble bronchial affection; said
the larnyx wus badly affected. I was almost dead when I commenced taking Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. My
neighbor, thought I would not live a
month. I was almost in consumption, but
thought I would try the ' Discovery.' From
the first I commenced to Improve. I have
taken it right along and with a few more
bottles think I will have as good health as
ever. I owe my life to Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. I have been the cause
of several in this town being cured hy it."

News From the Yukon
Letter From Archdeacon MoKny
Mrs. McKay,   wile  of  Archdeacon
McKay,   who  recently  left  for  the
Yukon,   has received a letter from her
husband.   He reached  Dawson  City
on July 19th.   On the way the  party
had   a thrilling experience.   By getting their  boats  through  a canyon
they oould avoid a long nnd severe
portage.      But      the     task    was
such a dangerous one    that   after
examining  It aeveral of the party advised giving  up  the  attempt.    The
Archdeacon went on an exploring expedition  through  the sanyon on his
own acoount and decided that if   two
ol  the  party wonld go with him, he
���was prepared to risk the  trip.   The
result was that tbe Archdeacon, with
his well known pluck and Intrepidity,
was  able successfully to negotiate all
dangers and transportation was made
in two  honrs that would otherwise
have taken a long  time.  The  Archdeacon  says  the  gold  deposits  ate
something wonderful.   Ho will build
a cabin at Dawson City which he will
make his  head quarters  for  winter,
and he  will either go out prospecting
or take work at the current wages   of
$ 15 a day till  suoh  time  as  opportunity offers.

With Yonr
Mr. Lumsden, Engineer-in-chief of
���the C. P. R., was in Golden last week
on his way through to Steele.   He Informs  ns  that  there  are at present
nine engineering  parties at work on
the Crow's Nest Road,   and  of these
Ave  parties  are working west of the
Kootenay River.   Mr. Earle is working west of Moyie Lake; Mr. Cranston
is doing the  section  at  Moyie Lake
���which is a heavy piece of  work  involving a lot of rock cutting and tun
neling; Mr. Heanington is engaged on
the work from Kootenay Lake to meet
Mr Earle; Mr. Garden   has  In  hand
the section between  Cranbrook  and
Moyie;  And  Mr.   H. W.  Armstrong
is  doing the seotion between  Cranbrook and Elk River.    Mr. Lumsden
says that the C. P. R. construction
road will be completed over the Crow's
Nest Pass Road Into the Kootenay
Valley within three or four weeks.
"My sufferings a year ago from the
kidneys and stomach  were  dreadful.
I was in suoh a state that I could not
live, and concluded there was no use
trying other medicines.
"I was  advised, however,   to  try
Paine's Celery Compound, nnd finally
I decided to give it a trial. Before I had
finished the first bottle I had improved verv much, and after the use of a
few more bottles I had not been so
well tor long years, and am altogether a different person. The use
of Paine's Celery Compound also
banished my nervousness. I can therefore recommend Paine's Celery Compound to any one suffering from kidney, stomach and female ti onbles." 164

In replying to the address presented

suid it wasa wrong thing lhat a railway company should be allowed to
ruin a town by removing from it after
P'-ru le hud bought their lots and had
built on them on the reasonable
grounds of it being periiumeut. It
would give hiin much pleasure to endeavor to have -statutory provision
whereby a railway company in such
cases slionll pay compensation to
people whose property might be destroyed thereby.
We congratulate Mr Griffith, Gov.
eminent Agent, on the wny he is getting to work. He returned this week

Owing to the activity on these creeks
he let a contract for the opening uu of
a trail up Dutch Creek and over t he

proposes to make nn inspection of the

necessary to put this important trail
into good condition.

that the public should have equal
rights with the Golden Lumber Company in regard to right of way on the
