is assured. Those who have left for

this issue. In view uf the Tact that

rivers and mountains also abound in
legendary lore sufficient io furnish the
qunsi-historiun food for reduction for
a life time.
There is no hotter criterion to judge
of the progress and culture uf a community iliiin is to he found in nu examination of its educational resources.
In this respect Golden has kept full
pace with tier progress in other lines,
and there is no town of her size in the
province posse.-sing a better system of
education than is to be found here.
The instructions afforded are amply
practical, great attention being paid
io the preparation of pupils forei.ir-.nce
into that greatest of schools���the
world. The public school system is
under tho most excellent management.
Scarcely a vacant olKce, store or
bouse is to be found in town.
The climate is one of the most delightful to be imagined, being conducive to longevity.
All lines of business are well represented nnd tho merchants, while having no cause to complain of a rush of
trade, are each doing a good and growing business. There is room for more
enterprises here thut would be uf advantage to the town and should prove
sources of profit to their projectors.

"What lias Golden to back it up and
secure prosperity in the future?" She
Ims unlimited foiests, unknown qunn-
tities of the precious minerals, a rich
fanning country, the finest stock nnd
range country in thu world; she is the
bend of navigation ou the Upper
Columbia, mid she has a smelter, and
is n first class fur market.
Golden is indeed a jewel set in a
gold and silvetl mounting as the mines
in- tho surrounding nud tributary
mountainous country are rapidly being
developed and will soon become world
famous producers.
Every commercial traveller will tell
you Golden is his best town: that
more goods ure sold here and collections nre prompter thnii elsewhere.
esome j shines like n sapphire on the swelling
bosom of the richest stretch uf country
the sui. ever shone upon. She is a
town of happy homes und prosperous,
enterprises. Happy is the lot of the
dweller within her gates, fortuuate is
the possessor of un enterprise in her
midst; for bis prosperity is assured.
In a detailed review of the commercial interests of Golden, there are certain business institutions deserving of
more than the usual allotiue.it of space
for the reason that they have assumed
such proportions us would be hard to
set forth iu a small space. Conspicuous among this class of houses is that
of G. B. McDermot. This business
had its inception ubout nine months
ago yet that short period has been
sufficiently long to demonstrate the
reliablity and stability of the enterprise, the premises occupied for busi*
ness purposes consist of a store build'
ing and live huge warehouses. Tho
building occupied as a store is a decided contrast to the stock carried. The
store is constructed of logs, is long,
not very wide and tho ceilings are not
high. Occupying every available foot
of space iu the interior is a mammoth
stock of goods that would creditably
grace any town in lhe Province. The
stock comprises dry goods, notions,
gents and ladies furnishings, hats,
cups, boots, shoes, hardware, medicines, groceries, provisions, crockery,
in fnci everything usually carried in a
Hist class emporium. As showing
the extent of business transactions it
may be stated : the freight paid during
the past nine mouths bus exceeded
SH.OOOj the turnover has been 8(15,000
during the same length of time. In
purchasing many lines of goods are
obtained in car lots such us--Hour,
canned goods, etc. ���and the saving of
freight, luck of middlemen's profit,
nml lower lirst cost enables the firm to
sell cheaper than many small dealers
can buy at. At the inception a policy
of selling for cash only and at ouo
price to all was adopted. This, by
competitors and others, was decried ns
indicative of failure, but objectors
failed to lake into consideration the
palpable   fact   that   selling   for cash

The Progressive   Commercial
Metropolis of Eastern B.C.
(Continued from Page 4.)
In presenting for the consideration
of our readers both at home and abroad
descriptive reviews of the various industries and commercial enterprises of
Golden,'it is necessary and important
to select representative establishments
and consider more particularly those
whoso success has made tbem conspicuous und gained for the proprietors
and promoters positions prominent in
the mercantile history of the country.
With that end in view we call attention to the Golden Lumber Co.. an
institution upon whose success in a
good m insure depends the present pros
perity of this town. The business
had its inception about two years ago.
The plant comprises all tbe necessary
buildings nnd a modern plant for the
daily production of 35,000 feet of
manufactured lumber. The principal
product is Douglas fir, while cedar
also receives some attention. This
lumber finds a ready market at a profitable price in tbe prairie country.
From one hundred to two hundred
men find employment with the Company to handle the output of material
used in its operations uud Uie.e workmen are employed at good remuneration
and who spend their money nnd buy
their sup dies in this town. There is
no line of business in Golden thut is of
as much lienefit to the town or that
circulates regularly us much money
and makes times prosperous as this
enterprise. The Company have very
extensive and valuable limits all of
which are accessible to floatable
streams. The supply of material on
the limits will at the present rate of
consumption last for many years to
come, and it can easily be seen that
such an industry situate in Golden is
and will bo of immense value to its
success and prosperity.
The transportation business, especially in thoroughly competent hands,
is an important factor in the upbuilding
of the town and the general progress
of the community and is un element
that has largely conduced to Gulden's
reputation as a commercial centre,
With reference to so well known u
company as the Upper Columbia Navigation & Tramway Co.. but little can
be snid that is not already known to
the citizens of this district. This
company was incorporated by special
act of parliament on April S, 18111, for
tho pur|-ose of transporting passengers
atid freight on the Columbia river,
conducing a tramway and stage lines,
etc. Tne terminals at present are
Fori Steele and Golden with the latter
as the initial .mint. Four steamboats
are owned while three, the Duchess,
Gwendoline and Hyak are regularly in
commission during navigation. The
Duchess is the finest boat on the river,
is 100 feet over all, 145 gross tons,
nnd is especially adapted for passenger
business of which it receives the bulk.
Special trips can be arranged for by
hunting, tourist parties and others.
A tram wav one mile in length connects the C.P.R station with the b*mt
landing. All the freight nnd passengers for Fort Steele snd intermediate
points go via this line. At tho close
of  navigation  a  stage line, running
every alternate Tuesday makes the
��� rip. The company is officered by T.
B. H. Cochrane, president; C. H. Parson, Sec.-Treas., and Capt. F. P. Ann-
strong, manager; gentlemen whose
names would give solidity and stability to any enterprise wilh which they
might connect themselves.
H. O. Parson, who. on July lllst
lust succeeded Curlin & Lake, in whose
service he had been for the past eight,
years, occupies that firm's old premises in the Alexander Block, and carries
a large and complete stock of nearly
everything required iu the town and
neighborhood. He also conducts a
wholesale liquor business for the purpose of which he has n bonded warehouse. Mr. Parson believes in giving
close attention to all orders, whether
large or small, and in handling only
the best goods at the lowest possible
profit. His already extensive business
is rapidly increasing.
Although   Golden possesses a number  of  hotels of  a  meritorious and
praiseworthy   character   there is not
one thut enjoys a better reputation or
a   steadier   trade   than   tlie   Russell
House.    This hostler, cume under its
present popular management lnstspring
since which time the trade has steadily increased.    The house is located on
the south side of the river and contains
twelve nicely furnished sleeping apartments,   besides   parlor,  office, dining
room,   bar   room,   sample  rooms for
uo.uinerci.il   men,   etc.   The    dining
room bus a   comfortable seating capacity for 20 guests.     The table is supplied with the best  the maiket affords
and is unexcelled in town. The cuisine
is   presided over by n competent chef.
The bar is supplied with the choicest
of   imported   aud   domestic wines, liquors and   cigars of  standard manufacture   and   recognized   purity.     A
specialty is made uf serving pure wines
and   liquors   for   medicinal and communion purposes.     Mr. C. E. Hamilton, or   "Roxey"   as  he is familiarly
called, is  a   popular  and experienced
"mine host."   He has conduced caravansaries  at   Field, Banff  and other
places.     He has been  in this country
for twelve years.     Mr. Hamilton is a
thorough believer   in the value of this
country  as a field for  mining and as
an   evidence   of   his   faith  it may be
stated he has a force of men at present
at work developing his own prospects
in the Spillimacheeu district.
By mention of this establishment
and its premeditated adjuncts���parlors
for the preparation and service of the
luscious bivalve and frigid luchiferous
confection -we in no small way endanger the exchequer of the young
men who dance attendance on the
charming beauties of Golden. However we will trust to the aforesaid
young men's ability to magnify the
deadly results'of tyrotoxican and other
poisons to protect his accumulated
capital. H. J. Starforth is a native of
Scotland and became domiciled in
Golden on May 8th. removing here
from Prince Albert. The store occupied is nearly opposite the railroad
station. The stock is varied and comprehensive und comprises books, stationery, newspapers periodicals, wall
paper, fruits, nuts, cigars, lobaccoes,
etc. Within a few days an invoice of
holiday goods aud toys will be received
that will deligbt the children, those of
mature years and will aptly correspond with pocket books of the most
plethoric character or of the most
emanciated form.
"Fate cannot harm me, I have
dined to-day," would be a correct consensus of opinion of the patrons of the
Maple Leaf Restaurant. This business
wus well and favorably known when
it was formerly operated, previous to
the fire, and it is reasonable to suppose it will again secure ils old time
and popularity. The building occupied is located between the Kootenay
House nnd Queen's Hotel. Meals and
lunches are served at all hours, day or
night, in a first class style. Every
delicacy and substantial of tbe season
is on hand. Lunches are put up (or
travellers and a specialty will be made
of unterini* for weddings, parties, ban-
ques, balls, etc. Mr, Frank Field,
the energetic proprietor, has resided
here for 10 years, coming here from
Oregon, Personally, he is ��� gentleman of affable, urbane manners and a
shrewd business man who is sure of a
pronounced success.
How many times have you gone into a so-called barber shop and been cut
and scraped and rasped and butchered,
and made up your mind that in the
future you would wear a full beard?
And then! the very next time you!
went into a shop where artists the
equal of Joe Lamontagu were employed
you left the shop at peace with yourself and the world in general. Mr.
La.nontngn is a native of Montreal and
came to Golden- from Calgary two
years ago. At the time of business
inception there were two other shops
and the harboring career has been au
exemplification ol the survival of tlie
fittest. The shop owned and occupied
is 16x24 feet in size. In the spring
bath rooms will be added. A general
barbering business is transacted and
satisfaction is gaarauteed. Mr. Lamontagu is a popular energetic young
business man and a fair representative
uf one of Golden's progressive citizer.s.
As has been stated the Golden Gen
eral Hospital of which Capt. Ann
strong is president, is one of the
meritorious institutions of the town
aud one that is worthy of the support
it receives. The hospital is a model
from a sanitary ur medical standpoint
and is under efficient medical supervision. Dr. J. N. Taylor is a native
of Oitawa and received his medical
education and degree from McGill
University of Montreal, class of '92.
For a year he was home surgeon in the
Montreal General Hospital and came to
Golden in Sept. 18!";', to take charge of
the hospital. Under his direction the
hospital has been a pronounced success. Dr, Taylor is well known as a
member of the Capitals, the Ottawa
Lacrosse club and champions of the
world. Dr. Taylor is a public spirited
citizen of this town and a thorough
believer in its steady growth and progress.
Although it is generally considered
that the immigrants from the Flowery
Empire are-conservative to backward
uess yet Golden possesses one who is
the reverse of this class and one whose
success might well be emulated by-
others. Wa Kee has been her*: about
two years and owns and occupies a
two story building 20x110 feet it. size,
located opposite the railroad station.
The stock comprises confections,fruits,
nuts, cigars, cigarettes. Chinese and
Ia| anese staple and fancy goods,
bread, cakes, pies, etc. The trade enjoyed is large and increasing. For
holiday trade a large stock of goods
suitable for presents is carried. Wa
Kee the proprietor, formerly worked
at Nelson and Beaver where he was
well liked and a general f-vorite.
When coining here he obtained readily
a good trade. He has signified his
intention of becoming a citizen of this
country and is one of the most intelligent and progressive of Golden's
Chinese population. He has erected
two buildings in the last two years,
one being occupied by Yee Lee.
It is not within the province of this
publication to determine or investigate the authorship of the trite expression " Cleanliness is next to Godliness," but it is agreed by all to be
true especially when good laundry
work can be done. Golden is fortunate in this respect, possessing an
establishment whose productions will
compare favorably with steam laundry
work. This business is conducted
by Yee Lee and is owned by Quan
King. Quan King has resided here
for two years and came here from
Vancouver, DC, He was in partnership with Wa Kee, at first. This
business was destroyed by the small
conflagration one year ago last October and dissolution took place nnd the
present member retained the business
name. The premises occupied consist
of a two story building 25x40 feet in
size located at the rear of tho Columbia Hotel. All the laundry work is
done by hand and this preserves the
clothes, and makes them last longer,
and gives them a finish equal to Troy
work. Orders are solicited from a |
distance and work may be sent by
mail or express with the positive assurance of en early return and the
best quality. Quan King and hia
former partner are the two representative Chiuete business men in Golden.

Mr. J. H. Semple has a large number
of friends who aru patrons of the store
while Mr. Joe Luke, formerly of Carlin ft Luke, is ever ready to greet old
patrons iu a manner delightful personally ' bs well as professionally. Mr.
McDermot is a .native of Ontario Co..
Out., and was for a number of years
Fisheries Inspector for thn district of
Ontario. He has resided here three
years and has bud 25 years experience
in general merchandise. He is a highly
respected business man of ability and
cne who has carved his way to his
present prominence with no other tools
than eiuitable dealing, fair representation and ii, est goods at bed rock
Gol.'.en was not the desirable place
of business or residence is is to-day
when Mr. Warren ca.ne here but l.e
and kindred enterprising spirits have
combined to place her in the enviable
position she now occupies, The business had iis inception in 1889 under
the Arm name of Durick ft Warren.
This title continued until four years
ago when the present energetic owner
assumed sole control. The premises
occupied for business purposes consist
of a store 35x40 feet and two warehouses 25x30 feet and 15x20 feet in
size, respectively. The stock is a
select, one and is well arranged and
displayed and consists of dry goods,
notions, furnishings, clothing, hats,
cups, hoots, shoes, drugs, hardware,
groceries, provisions, crockery, etc.
There is no need of anyone sending
elsewhere for anything in this line as
qualities are equal and prices as low
right here. In purchasing many articles are obtained in car lots and this
enables the store to s*ll cheaper than
many/a small firm can buy at. G. H.
Brock- is employed in the capaciy of a
clerk. The trade enjoyed is large and
was obtained by always selling reliable
goods at the lowest prices. Mr. C. A.
Warren is a native uf Oshawa, Ont.,
and came to Golden i . 188J. He
occupies the office of postmaster-a
position whicli he acceptably (ills to
the satisfaction of ull parties. He is a
fair representative of Golden's upright,
honorable and progressive ...un and
ono who believes in advancing every
effort made fer the improvement of
Golden and the development of the
If there is one thing above all others
that the residents of any (own, borough, city, villii,*e or liainlot will
point to with a greater deg.ee of pride
tliuii another, it is a suitable place for
tho aci-.o.ninodiitioii of travelljrs���n
hotel under suitable management and
run in a first class, up lo date manner.
The people of Golden point with pardonable pride to tlie Kootenay Hotel
and say to all who may a*.k ��� ''Yes, it
is a good hotel and one of which wo
are justly proud." The Kootenay is
located directly opposite the railroad
station and is in the rent re of the
town. The office, bar, billiard, reading and sample rooms are. on the
ground floor. The dining room is one
of the chief attractions of the house
and is also on this Door. The table is
supplied with the choicest viands and
delioicies of . the season, cooked to a
turn and served in a manner acceptable
to the taste of the most fastidious
The table linen, in its immaculate
whiteness, end the bright, clean silverware, tell to the stranger a story of
what is to come, even before a perusal
of the menu card. The chef de cuisine
of this caravansary is one of rare
ability and teems to know the wants
of each guest. The public parlors
and sleeping rooms are situated on the
second floor.".*  The sleeping rooms are
justly famous for their scrupulous
neatness, and are home like and comfortable at all seasons. The bar
maintains the same high standard of
excellence as'does the rest of tbe bouse
being supplied with the best brands of
wines, liquors nnd cigars. While under this roof everything in reason is
done to couduce the comfort and well
being of the guest. The time is not
long- six months -since this bostlery
passed into the bauds of its present
gonial proprietor, Mr. Horace D.
Hums, but of sufficient length to convince all who have been fortunate
oiiough to enroll their mimes among
its patrons, that tbey could not have
found a safer or more agreeable haven.
The opinion ...av be ventured I hat each
day will win new laurels for the house
and new personal friends for the
proprietor.       '
As Golden increases in sine and commercial importance she carries with
her a goodly number of business institutions that have been closely identified with her growth, nnd she is proud
to-day to have many of thmn enrolled
as leaders in her commercial circles,
for it is undoubtedly her push-along
business men and eucrgetic citizens
that have given her her prominent
position in the commercial snd financial affairs of the eastern part of British Columbia. A firm well deserving
of a place in this class of enterprising
business enterprises is Houston ft Co.
This business had its inception iu 1893
under tbe title of Houston ft Wilson
which co-part net ship existed for about
one year when the present firm mime
was adopted. The business is also
called the Golden Sash ft Door Factory
and Machine Sho'i. The premises
occupied are desirably located contiguous to the tram way and consist of a
two story building 22x50 in dimensions
with an addition Iti feet square. The
lower floor contains the machine shop
and the upper floor the wood-working
depart ment. The building contains a
complete plant of the latest michanic
appliances for the production of a
superior grade of doors, frames, sash,
balusters, newels, rails, moldings nnd
other platting mill work; and for repairing engine boilers, and mining and
saw mill machinery. A socially is
made of repairing mining machinery
aud orders from long distances are
regularly received. Ever alive to his
own interests and that of the town
Mr. Houston will install a foundry as
soon as the trade in that department
justifies it. Several first class mechanics receive coi.4ta.it employment at
good remuneration. The establishment is one of the producing establishments that does more tbau i.s share
to advance the best interests ot Oolden
The standard size stock liud a ready
sale in the prairie country east of hern.
Mr. W. L. Houston the popular pro-
prie'or is a native ol Bruniptou a town
about 12 miles fro... Shcrbrooke, Que.
Iu that locality be learned his trade
and occupied a number ol. positions of
trust' and importance. He was much ine man for two years and was
afterward foreman in a paper mill iu
Scolstown, previous to coming here.
Seven years ago last July he located
in Gulden nnd ei-icu-d what is now the
Golden Lumber Co.'s mill and plant.
In 1893 he started li is present enterprise. The business is conducted
with energy, ability and liberality and
is sure of a prosperous career. In conclusion we desi.e to slate that the
facilities for doing business and the
qualifications of the management ure
unexcelled in the Province.
To the avocation ongaged in by the
gentleman whose name forms a caption
to this sketch is due the beauty and
solidity of a town. When the hygenic
and sanitary laws are understood and
obeyed the structure becomes not only
a building of beauty and solidity but a
resort of bei.lt li fulness. The leading
representative of .tliU department of
commercial energy in Golden is Mr.
Jus. Henderson. Mr. Henderson is a
native of Scotland, where he learned
hie trade, who cume to this town from
Toronto tour years ago. He does a
general carpentering, contracting and
building business; wiites specifications
and draws plans when desired ; does
jobbiug and shoy work. Since locating here he has doue almost every job
in the towu from and including all the
large ones to the small ones. On
every job undertaken entire satisfaction has been given. ������ Mr. Henderson
has had 20 )ears experience in'.his
line and his work is not based on
theory of the hatchet and saw kind
but is the result of experience. He
thoroughly understands .every .esee.i
tial detail of the business.
