Tile Smelter Question
Hewitt Bostock, Esq,, M. P., re.
turned from his Parliamentary duties
on Tuesday. He inform-, us that he
did his utmost ta get the Government
to put in a telegraph line between
Golden and Fort Steele, but that owing to the large grant that hail to be
made for tho Crow's Nest Pass Railway, anil the opposition ol the eastern
members to further votes for the west,
it was impossible to get Ministers to
agree to voles for works that Mr.
Bostock would have liked to have
seen done in this part of the constitu
ency had it been possible to get. the
necessary moneys. He had therefore
to rest satisfied with a promise of a
vote for next year for the establishment of the much required telegraphic
With reference to the dyking of tho
Columbia and Kickinghorso rivers to
protect the farm lands. Mr. Bostock
duly presented the petition recently
sent in from Golden, and has obtained
the assurance of the Minister for
Agriculture that lie will visit the
district in August, ami will .-.eo for
himself what is required. Mr. Bostock
will arrange to give the people here
timely notice of his visit so that they
can discuss the mutter with him
iwraonally, and will himself meet the
Minister on his arrival nt Golden and
show him through the Columbia
Mr. Bostock expresses his disappointment that he wus unable to
secure a better mail service between
Golden and Steele, but that Mr,
Mulock was bent on retrenchment,
and he could not be induced to agree
to the more efficient, though more
costly, service. Our member hopes,
however, to see the better service yet
agreed to by the Department.
Though ho would rather see the
Government tako in hand the con
struction and operation of the railways
ol Canada, that time hag not yet
arrived, and he considers the arrangement about the Crow's Nest road as
reasonable a bargain aa could have
been made between the company and
the Government. As to the charter
for a road through the Columbia
Valley, from Golden to Steele, that
appeared to bo a purely speculative
affair, and so was thrown out.
Mr. Bostock expresses the opinion
that the provisions of the new tariff
will have the effect of inducing the
smelting of the ores of B. C. to be
done largely In the province itself,
and hopes, as oue result of thie legislation, to see tho smelter in Goldeu
soon in full blast.
Regarding the 15,000,000 loan Mr.
Bostock says that was unavoidable as
tbe Conservative party had left a legacy ol a large floating debt, and theu
there was the Crow's Nest Pass grant
and other works that hud to be kept
Tbe editor of the Era brought under
Mr. Bostock's notice the complaints
that have been made to him about the
Golden titles to town lots and Mr.
Bostock promised to write to the department about It at once and endeavor to have the grievance rectified.
Mr. Bostock regretted his inability
to  stop  off at Golden as he had to
hurry on ro Kamloops on urgent busi* j lociility;   Donald,  by A.  Denman on

past week it number of prospectors
have come into Golden from the
southern country, attracted by tlio accounts which they have seen in the

they will shortly make for the Blue-

Mr, Earl, C. P. R. Engineer, left
Montreal on Saturday and arrived in
Golden on Wednesday morning to
start work on the Crow's Nest road.
Mr. Earl was the Engineer who laid
out the section of Hue between the
I���rckinglioi-se canyon and Rogers
Pass. Ho wus also in charge of the
engineering work on the western
.slopes cf the Selkirk Mountains, one
of the mos*. difficult und successfully
I erformed pieces of engineering on the
present. C. P. II. route. He also did a
good deal of tho engineering of the
line through the Gold Range. Mr.

When ut Douald the other flay wo
had a run through the C. P. R. shops,
lhe foreman, Mr. Hobbs. kindly favoring us with ull inf"iiiui:ion about the
work bjiug dono and tho machinery in
use. Here we saw the huge engines
used on the mountain section in various stages of repair, from tlio mere
shell to a stage as complete lie that in
which the new engines leave the work
shops at Montreal. Ono of the Consolidated engines was in process of
having a new lire box put in. Another
Consolidated, No. 402, was in for genera] over haul. A Mogul engine was
undergoing general repair. The largest
Consolidated the C. P. R. have, No.
i)14, was being thoroughly overhauled.'
One of the new ballast trucks wns
in for repair, These are most ingenious appliances and are dimmed and replaced automatically Irom tue engine
by pneumatic action.
As a visitor goes through the shops
he finds a perfect system of organization everywhere. Eucll Ulan is at Iris
post or tending his particular machine, and it is this specialization of
labor that enables aucii excellent work
to lie done at the Donald shops.
Some of the machinery n the Donald shops is of great magnitude and
power. The double wheel lathe for
turning tires is a wondei-.iind behind it
another powerful and ingeniously built
machine is the cast iron car wheel
borer for boring the axle shaft holes in
the wheels as they are received at
Donald from the foundry.    Then there

axemen will join Mr. Earl's party at
Moyie. Mr. Enrl intonns us that it
is the intention of the C. P. R. to
push on as rapidly as possible with
construction, hut he doubts whether
they will lie able to get any further

us these are the safest cast iron wheels
made on the American continent.

there is the slightest Haw on them
they are rejected and new ones put iu.

We consider that the time is fully
ripe for the organization of a Miners'
Association for Golden. There is
much work for such an association to
do here in advancing and promoting
the mining interests of the district.
This association would also have a
good effect in acting as a deterrent to
the crooked work lhat has oeon complained of in the past, while It might
be mado of great value in attracting
investors to the district, and would
also act as a means of enabling the
miners of the district to combine for
their mutual protection, especially in
the case of attempted claim jumping
or bogus litigation. Then again at
meetings of such an association good
service might be done by an exchange
of vlows regarding the ore deposits of
the different localities and of experi
ences in practical prospecting.

Now that Golden is about to develop
into so muoh importance as a railroad town and distributing point it is
necessary thnt steps should he tnken
to have a Board of Trade established
here. Such boards have been of great
service in promoting tlie interests oi
towns whore they aro established, and
we need go no further than Revelstoke
to see the splendid work which the
Board of Trade has done fnr that
town. One of the first things to be
done by a Board of Trade would lie the
securing of n reduation on freight
rates to Golden as a distributing
point. Similar concessions have been
gi anted to Revelstoke as the result of
the action of the Board of Trade. At
present the C. P. R. carry goods to
Vancouver for less than half what
they charge to Golden- Allowing for
the effect of competing lines in through
freight, there is, still ample reason
why there should not be such a dis
crepancy in tho rates for goods con
signed respectively to Golden and Vancouver. Now is the time to urge reduced rates, and we havo no doubt the
C. P. R. would givo every consider*
tion to proposals Irom a representative

prived of the advantages of any information usually conveyed by Government advertisements. A mail who
has gol through Parliament such
legislation for his own benefit as the
B. C. Southern charter and its amendments; or who got a land, grant
through giving his support in the
Legislature to another scheme of a
similar character; or whose Cran-
brook estate wus valued for purposes of public taxation at 11.80 an
acre, when he valued It at f 12 an acre
for sale to a company, and when the
inferior lands uf the Columbia valley

Complaints are frequentlySnade to
us that there is much unnecessary and
vexatious delav in getting title deeds
through the land registry office at Victoria, If the Legislature had adopted
the excellent suggestions made by Mr.
Cotton, M. P. P., at last session the
system of registration would have
been much simplified, but the Turner
Government seems too antiquated for
anything except the making of gifts
to its friends of the heritage of the
people. As they seem to he determined

Now is the time for the hotel keep-
ers und carriers between Golden and
Steele to co-operate with the Navigation Co. and with thu stage, proprietors in promoting traffic into the Fort
Steele country by this route. There
is no doubt that the traffic can be secured. We have made enquiries as to
the best method of doing it and are
informed that to bring about this desirable state of affairs it can be done
if the charges for accommodation and
so forth were reduced to the same rales
as prevail on the southern routes. It
is therefore in the interest of tlio hotel
keepers and freighters on the Golden-
Fort Steele road to consider this matter and determine to make their rates
just jis favorable tu the tiave'liug public ns, if not better than, can be got at

The action of the Senate in blocking
the legislation of the Laurier Government shows that some attention will
have io be given shortly to the position of thnt antiquated body. In a
constitution like that of the Dominion
of Canada there ia no necessity for a
second chamber and the fact that during the past session the Senate threw
out five of the Government measures
shows how that body may bo used to
thwart the will of the electors as ex.
pressed at the ballot box. As the
Senate Ib now constituted it is made
np mainly of defeated Conservative
candidates who were no use to anybody but bull dozers and boodlers

The first form on the south side of
Golden is that occupied by H. and A.
Vaohon. Fronting the Fort Steele
road, overlooking the valley of the
Columbia and sheltered (rom the north
and south winds, this homestead is
one of the choicest in tbe vicinity of
Golden. The holding consists of 320
acres, taking in part of the adjacent
slough and extending to the smelter
townsite boundary on the Bouth side.
Vaehon Bros, make a specialty of cultivating vegetables and small fruits
such as currants, gooseberries, strawberries and raspberries. A now bed of
strawberries was planted out for this
season. The Sharpless variety is
found to do well, slid Irom a small
patch 80 pounds of this Iruit was
gathered last season. Fresh beds of
strawberries are planted out every two
yoars. Apples have been found to do
well and a number of trees, supplied
from Hutoherson's nursery at Ladner's
have been planted out this season. The
soil around the homestead is rich and
there are capital facilities for irrigation, a stream from the mountains
flowing through the property. Oats,
wheat and potato crops have been put
in this spring, most of the ploughing
having been done in autumn before the
snow fell, but good wheat has been
grown on the farm when sown as late
as June. Poultry houses have been
built and Vaehon Bros, intend to increase their number of fowls to about
100. Thoy also intend going in for raising ducks. Considering that it is only 3J
years since they took np this farm

nre grown. A due stable and hay loft
have been built, and thero are also
good fowl houses with winter scratching ground Mr. Stacey keeps about
80 fowls���a cross between Luugshuns
and Blaok Minorcas.
S. D. Niklasson is the occupier of
the next property. A native of

on ihe railways, and settled in Golden
three years ago. The farm consists ol
1G0 acres, half of whicli is on each
side of the Columbia river. Mr. Niklasson does a little dairying und keeps
a good number of poultry. Ho has
cleared a parch of new ground on the
upper side of the rond, in which crops

Dr. William.' Pink Pill. Restored
Their Health and Thev Wish Other
Sufferers to Know tt���A Letter that
Will Bring Hollo to Many-No Other
Medicine Uet. 8ui.li Vi.luntu.-y
The following loiter written by the
Rev. Win. Lawson, Methodist minister at Riohibucto, N, 11.. attests in the
strongest manner the merits of Dr.
Williams' Pink'Pills, anil a perusal of
it will suggest why this great medicine le so popular in thousands of
homes throughout the Dominion-it
cures when other medicines fail.
RtomnuOTO, N.B., April 2lith, '1)7.
Dr. Williams'Medicine Co.,
Dear Sirs,���I am glad to furnish
you the following voluntarily given
testimonial, with the fullest permission to give the names and place. They
do this as a thank offering to God
and your medicine, Mrs. .Wm, Wurman of Molus River (near hare) says
her sou Alden was sickly from birth.
He could hardly ever retain food, and
his parents had but little hopes that he
would live long and the doctors who
attended him were of tbe same opinion Till seven years of age he continued in that condition. Then the
uso of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills was
begun, and under them he recovered
and is now a strong healthy boy. Mr.
Warman, the boy's father, also adds
his testimonial to the great value of
Pink Pills, saying: "I suffered for
years with a bud back, until I used
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and they
cured me," Miss Annie Warman adds
this evidence with enthusiasm and
freedom: "I was weak and sickly,
and did not know the blessing of good
health till 1 took Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I used eight boxes and have
since enjored the best of health. In
fact I am never sick now."
Here you have three members of a
family restored to health by the uso ol
vour medicine, and you would almosi
covet their good health arid genial
wavs largely resulting from such
health. They wish you to finely use
these facts to help other sufferers, ami
I am nbio as their pastor tu certify i.
the facts above stated.
Sincerely yours,
Wm. LaWKO.i,
Cu Methodist Minister.

within the past few weeks: ���Warehouse, 20x34ft., and two storeys in
height, built forjC. A. Warren ; house
for G. Rehder, two storeys in height,
and containing nine rooms; addition
of 12x18ft. to White's building for D.
Calder, chemist; addition to warehouse of 20x28ft., for H. G. Parson;
addition to Golden Hospital of an
operating room and the enlargement of
the general ward; and a two-storey
warehouse for G. B. McDermot,
Mr. Barber, secretary to the Golden
Lumber Co., returned on Friday from
a trip to the Coast and to West Kootenay. He found the lumber trade in
the west very brisk, the rates on
lumber having recently heen raised.
The activity is due to the great demand for West Kootenay. Mr. Barber
visited Nelson, Kaslo, and Sandon,
where there are so many mines now
shipping ore, Thc scene in Kaslo on
Saturday night was particularly
striking, crowds of people coming into
the town from the neighboring- mines.
From what Mr. Barber saw he came
to the~boncliision thut whnt we want
in this district Is to get some of our
mines to the shipping point. When
that is reached capital will come in
freely for Investment, and where
capital goes labor and population
The offices of the Mining and Scientific Press have been removed from 220
to 330 Market Street, San Francisco.
Cal.,���the finest business location in
that city.
We remind our readers of the excursion up the river by the Duchess,
tonight (Friday), after the sports. An
orchestra will be on board the stoamer
to entertain those availing themselves
of the crip, which will doubtless be a
most enjoyable one.
Mr. Carlin was the victim of an
unpleasant accident on Friday evening.
He was engaged in seeing that the
boom at the Golden Lumber Co 's mill
was secure against the rising waters
when he slipped and fell into the river.
As he wore heavy gum boots, these
filled with water and placed him in a
difficult position till assistance camo,
when with the aid of ropes ha wus
rescued from his perilous situation.
In view of the changes which are
about to be made- by the C. P. It.,
General Manager Whyte proposes to
make arrangements with the trustees
of the Golden Hospital to have that
institution open to the treatment of
the employees of the C. P. R. No
aotion will therefore be taken to improve thc C. P. R. Hospital at Donald.
Dr. Taylor will probably be appointed
C. P. R. su|geon for this section, and
it is reported that the C. P. R. intend
establishing another hospital at Revelstoke, to the charge of which Dr.
Proctor, the present C P. R. doctor
at Donald, will probably be appointed,
together with the duties of medical
officer to the employees at that
Some of our friends at Donald profess to be very much annoyed with us
for publishing our interview with Mr.
Whyte, General Manager of the
C.P.R., regarding the removal of the
workshops to Golden. Such a position
is utterly unreasonable. We are
the business to get news, and we shall
get it us fully and accurately as
possible. In the case in question we
went to considerable trouble to get an
authoritative statement. We shall
continue to do our liest to get the latest
and best, news of interest to our
renders, and to publish it, irrespective
ef whom we may please or offend.
When it won't pay us to run a newspaper on these lines we shall get out of
the business.
Wher. at Calgary Inst week Mr.
Wilson, foreman of the Golden Era
office wns the recipient of a handsome
presentation from the Fire Brigade, of
which he had been n member, having
been captain of the chemical engine,
The presentation took the form of ah
engraved gold locket and a pretty
address, designed by' one of the Band
boys. We quote the following paragraph from the addresB :���"To say
that your" loss will be deeply felt is to
,-ay you no conventional compliment.
It is difficult to fill the places vacated
by so many old friends who have
found it necessary to seek homes elsewhere, but you may rest assured that
wherever you go, or whatever new
associations you may make, yon "will
find no more firm friends, or sincere
wellwishers, than your companions in
the Calgary, Fire Brigade, with whom
you worked and played tor so many
years." Mr. Wilson expressed his
thanks for the kindness shown him by
his late comrades, and a very pleasant
social evening followed the presentation.
A. Campbell informs us that the
crops around Golden are better this
season than he has hitherto known
them. We hear similarly good accounts from all parts of tha Columbia
We are afraid that we shall have to
give up the Golden Town Committee
as a bad job. Another cause of complaint against them is that, through
their neglect to meet and take some
action, the grant made at last session
of the Provincial Parliament for fire
protection in Golden remains unutilized. Donsld leads the way in this
respect. The Golden Town Committee
might wake up and take a lesson fromj
the sister town in this respect,

Japanese Catarrh Cure has completely
cured me of u case of catarrh of 13
years standing. I have tried all the
other remedies, but the result was
only temporary relief. It is now three
vears since I used Japanese Catarrh
Cure, and since that time my catarrh
has not troubled me in the least. It Is
truly a wonderful remedy, the first application relieved. My wife also uses
It for severe headaches and in every
case it gives almost instant relief.
