SATURDAY, APRIL 3,   1897.
What has become of the movement
for obtaining telephonio or telegraphic
communication between Golden and
Von Steele. We bave not heard anything about thie movement for some
time. We should like to know what
the promoters are doing to obtain this
necessity for the district. This is a
mutter that concerua the inhabitants
of the northern portion, ss they are
fairly well satisfied with the telegraphic cotnmun cation they already
posies*. We know a series of meetings
was held at Fort Steele, resolutions
passed and memorials drafted, but be
yc.ud that nothing further appears to
have been done We doubt even if tbe
memorials have lieen sent iu. . Tele
phones or telegraphs or any other public work will never be obtained by suoh
spasmodic efforts aa these. The movement must be kept up in season and
out of eeaaon until the
Government doee construct thia
means of communication. The Dominion Government is too much like the
unjust judge and we must act the part
of the importunate widow if we ars to
obtain thia boon. The widow's claim
was a just one snd so is ours. No
body can dispute this���even our unjust
Judge admits this fact. Then let us
importune until tbe Government like
lhe unjust Judge of old gives way and
concedes our just and lawful rights.
Then don't let us remain inactive and
wait und wait until we become a mere
set of waiters. There must be more
earnestness and activity displayed.
Somo people seem to imagine if a prom*
ise is got from the Government and a
pledge ie given by the sitting member
that is sufficient to accomplish what
is desired. Leave tbem alone-and
when will tbe accomplishment be concluded-a long time bence. We want
our telephone or telegraph now when
it is moat required, and chat speedily
as it is sadly required to aaaist in the
development of our distriot and for the
transaction of business. Our member
-Mr. Bostonk-we understand, is
pledged to do bis utmost to get this
connection between Goldon and Fort
Steele. But even however willing be
may be, lie can do little to obtain the
means of construction unleea booked
up by his constituents. His constituents do not appear to give bim the
necessary backing. It surely cannot
be because they do not desire this telephone. Unmistakably it ie mnch
warned, but tbs want will never be
supplied by pasaing simply mere resolutions snd expressing pious opinions.
The peo,de in Golden will gladly and
willingly render sll assistance, but
this movement is s matter more for
tbe people of Fort Steele, and unless
they take up the matter mors enthusiastically than they appear to bs doing
it will be a long time beforo they ob
tsin telephonio communication with
thu outside world.
Is our editorial coluamns of last week
we mske an appeal to onr readers snd
��ll those wbo sre interested in East
Kootenay to supply the editor of The
Golden Era with full and complete
information aa to the resources of our
District���particularly  mining.     Our
District is uot as well  known as it
should be.   We do not kuow who is to
blame for this fault.   We ahall do our
best to remove it, we therefore renew
our appeal for information.   Strangers
have not been fully made aware of the
great mineral wealth that is iu the
District, and they have been deterred
from coming-in and fi iding out, partly
from the want of acourate and complete information, and partly through
the fault of the people-caused to some
extent from jealously in withholding
information.   An investor would come
into the District prepared to do business if he found matters satisfactory.
He finds out Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C
luive good claims to sell.     He   interviews Mr. A and finds that according
to Mr. A's opinion his is tbe only good
claim in tbe Diatrict,   aud thut  the
other two, to quote the classical phrase
are "No Good."     He next interviews
Mr. B and finds that according to his
view, Mr. A's claim is not worth holding, and thai his claim is by far away
the best claim that has been located in
tbe Distriot, and that Mr. Ca claim is
a poor shew.     Mr. Investor next goes
to Mr. C, and finds out according to
C's shewing, that nothing can equal
or excel his claim for satisfactory results, and any person having anything
to do with either Mr. A's or B's claim
would be sure to drop the money.  The
investor does not make any further
enquiries     He has formed two opinions which seem  to  him  conclusive.
First, there is nothing worth  holding
in the Distriot; second, that if  tliere
is, veracity is at such a terrible discount it will be safer for hiin to keep
elear.     All three claims are equally
good, but each of the owners  is so
afraid that his neighbor may get a
deal before him; that he decries his
neighbor's claim iu order to enhance
his own aud get in before his neighbor.
He, however, simply defe its  his own
ende���with the result that nsither he
nor hie neighbor can dispose of tbeir
Happily tbis state of matters is
rapidly becoming a forgotten item iu
tbe past and Mr. A, Mr. B. and Mr. C
now realise the fact that they can help
encb of themselves better by giving
rather than abstaining from giving information even about their neighbors
property. Each now realises if he can
aaaist his neighbor in making a good
deal, he will also assist himself in
making his property to be known as
being situated in a good locality, thereby securing the next best ahance of
making a successful deal. We want
toassistour neighbors who sro our
reading public in making our District
with ita great resources known to the
cntside investing world, by giving ua
full and com plats information aa we
can obtain in our mining, runoiiing,
farming and lumbering industries.
The investor is now coming iu. He
ie finding out our resources, He ie obtaining better information, but he haa
to eome snd seek it. We want to send
our infoamatiou out, spread it far and
wide, eo the inventing public can read
thie information and induce ite mem-
here to come and see the District, its
resources, und ihs wealth we havo It
is above and below ground���It ia growing oo the mountain sides-It is feeding on our benches and prairies���It ie
hid under ground, waiting to be disinterred and brought to light. We
require money to develop the wealth of
our resources aud enritb our Distriot
and its people.
We are hopelul tbat the artiolee we
publish will tend in this direction,
what is required is to make the Disi rict
and its resources known. Out roadere
and our friende are invited to assist us
in procuring and sending to us accurate
data concerning the District and its
resources, which we will utiliee and
genersliss in our special artioles. In
eo helping ue in our efforts they are
individually helping themselves not
only to increase their own material
prosperity but Uso the material prosperity of bis neighbor and of the whole
commnnity in onr District.

Tub Toronto Globe has enunciated a
railway policy which is worthy of consideration. It is not altogether advere
to the C. P. R. building the railway
through the Pass. Neither is it adverse
to the Dominion giving fair and reasonable aid, but it insists that, that
company shall surrender its monoply
in Western Canada and make substantial concessions, if the company will
not agree to the conditions then no
more grants of any kind to the C.P.R.
The conditions to be imposed are:
(1) The surrender of the provision
in the C. P. R. charter which pi-events
regulrtion of the rates.
(2) Control of thn coal lands if built
under the oharter of the British Columbia Soutborn.
(ii) Maximum fixtn rates for carriage of wheat, stock, coal and other
staples of British Columbia, Manitoba
and tlie Territories.
(4) Approval by the Governor-General in Council of the construction
(5) Absolute reservation of control
[-through the Puss and running powers
for other railways.
(II) Regulatiou of local and through
charges throughout Canada by a
national railway commission.
The Toronto World goes further and
maintains there are three things which
the Government of Canada should do:
(1) Veto the Provincial Act giving
the Crow's Nest coul to the B. C.
(2) Seize the Crow's Nest Pass under the right of eminent domain and
prevent the C. P. R. from going
(3) Repeal the clause in the C.P.R's
Act which allows it lo build iu any
This discussion may be very fine and
highly academic but it is not going to
assist in building the railway. The
people of East Kootenay want thia
railway baiit and we believe are willing that a fair price should he paid to
get it and are not too particular who
builds it or contracts it so long as they
are assured of fair treatment iu the
matter of rates.

.Ur. Pellew Harvey, F.(~.S.,on the Bast
Kootenay Mining Intlu.try.
W. Pellew Harvey. F.C.S , mining
engineer, of Vancouver, B.C., wbo has
just returned From a four mouths'
visit to England, whither he weut to
reiort on gold mining properties passed through Winnipeg last week and
was interviewed by the Free Press ol
that city. Mr. Harvey is a man of
wide experience and undoubted ability,
having spent seven years iu British
Columbia as an expert for several of
the lamest corporations operating
there Iu the course of that interview-
Mr. Harvey referred to the high grade
ore that existed in East Kootenay and
instanced tbe great North Star mine,
with au ore yielding 45 to 50 per cent
lead, and from 45 to 50 ounces ol silver per ton. This ore is almost self-
fluxing. He then referred to the copper and the coal deposits qf the Crow's
Nest Pass, also coal oil. He bad made
a number of assays of this coal and
was in a position to say that it is as
good as any in Canada and far above
the average. ���
When asked about the general feeling among capitalists iu England concerning Canadian miues, he replied
lhat in meeting mining men ol influence in England and Scotland a great
interest waa evideut in tbeir desire for
knowledge. They will, however, act
very carefully, tbe experience which
they gained in Africa and Ausiraliu
having cost them dear and will greatly
effect the investments in Canada, He
hail been commissioned by London
people to investigate the deposits of
copper lately found near Kamloops
chiefly on account of the prumiaiug
returns which were received from
Welsh and Liverpool smelters, after
treating ton lots of ore which be took
over for^tliat purpose. The ore is
sasily m.tphl without any additional
We have similar ore in East Kootenay which has also been treated by
Welsh smelters. Our mineral wealth
in British Columbia ie inure abundant,
mote diversified, and richer than that
uf South Africa or Australia. All that
we require for success is tbe confidence
of capitalists.

Mr. Wan Taylor, of Xsntvill*. Attacked with
Kidney Trouble ..So-Called Curs* proved
UmI.U, but Dr. Williams' Flak Pills So-
stored His Health.
From the Kentville Advertiser.
There are verv few employments
more trying to the health than that of
a railway engineer. The hours of labor
are frequently long, meals irregular,
and rest and sleep hurriedly snatched
"between ruus." One of the troubles
which viry frequently attaok railway
trainmen is kidney disease, which up
to a lata period has been looked upon
as a disease difficult, if not impossible.
to totally oure. Although there exist
numerous remedies claimed to be cures,
the truth is that nothing had been
found to successfully oope with this
terrible diseass until the advent of the
now world-famed Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Chancing to hear one day that
Mr. Wm. Taylor, a resident of this
town, had been cured of kidney trouble
through the agency of Dr Williams'
Pink Pills, a reporter called upon him
at his home to hear from him personally what he thought of his cure.  Mr
Taylor is an engineer on the Dominion
Atlantic Railway, his run being between Halifax and Kentville, and he is
one of the most popular drivers on the
road. When asked by the reporter
concerning concerning his illness he
said * '-It was in the spring of 189S
that I. had a severe attaok of kidney
trouble,brought or. by continuous running on the rosd, and I suppose it is
caused by the oscillation of the locomotive. It affected rae but slightly at
first, but gradually grew, worse. I
consulted a doctor and then tried two
or three varieties of so-called cures.
Borne helped rae for a time, but after
atopping the uee of them I grew worse
than ever. I had noticed numerous
testimonials in the papers concerning
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and reading
of one cure that was almost identical
with my own I decided to give them a
trial, and purchased four boxes at a
cost ot $2. But it was $2 well spent
for I was completely cured by the use
of tbe pills, and have not been troubled
with my kidneys since. I can therefore recommend thorn to others slmi-
lary afflicted.
The experience of yeara has proved
thst there ie absolutely no disease due
to a vitiated condition of the blood or
shattered nerves, that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will not promptly cure, and
those who sre suffering from such
troubles would avoid much misery and
ssve money by promptly resorting to
this treatment. Get the genuine Pink
Pills every time and do not be persuaded to take an Imitation or some other
other remedy from s dealer, who for
tbe saks of the extra profit to himself,
may ssy is "just ss good." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills curs when other
medicines fail.

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, aome indicating
enormous richness. Prospectors who
have been in tbat section for aeveral
years say that vast areas have not
been explored, # although enough is
known of the'surrounding country
to convince them that the Interior
offers the venturesome prospector rioh
The route of the proposed Crow's
Nest Pass railway passes through this
section, and, in anticipation ef ils
speedy construction, there will unquestionably be a widespread exploration
of that district. , The great difficulty
that attends even the partial development of claims already located is the
lack of trails. Most of the trails already opened owe their existence to the
independent work of industrious and
' determined prospectors. Thus far tbe
Government has expended onlv a few
hundreds of dollars Kaslo Kooten-

The London correspondent of the
'.New York Sun gives the following in*
.formation regarding tbe great jubilee
pa-jfeant of June 22: The one aim of
-very human being in London ou that
day will be to seo tbe Queen and the
royal procession. The number of persons who will bo possessed by that
purpose cannot be estimated at less
than six millions. It will probably be
more. It will undoubtedly be the
largest number of men and women ever
.assembled together in the history of
the world. This mass'iig together of
humanity will be the real marvel, the
really memorable event of that day.
The spectators themselves will be the
great spectacle. The most impressive
sight the correspondent ever witnessed
was the silent multitude, three millions
in number, wbo lined the Champs Ely-
sees aud the Bois de Boulogue last
October waiting for the cutry of the
Czar into Paris. Drivinr- the whole
length of the route just u..;' tre the profession passed along, it seemed like
riding along the dry bed oi a river,
witb sll humanity for its banks. A
crowd of 10-000 or even 100,000 is
within one's comprehension ; it is sn
assemblage made up of units When
,t.ie number mounts into the millions
It is no longer a crowd, it is no longer
human. It is a new and mighty creature, having attributes like uuto no
Other. In its presence is almost awe.
There is revealed the meaning of the
words: " The voice of thc people is tbe
voice of God."
We supplement this information:
���J*he_iroces*ion will start from Buckingham Place and proceed to St. Paul's
.Cathedral, where an open air service
will be held; It will afterwards go to
the Mansion House, tha official residence cl the Lord Mayor, where an address will be presented to Her Majesty.
The procession will then pass over the
Raver Thames to the south side and
proceed through Lambeth, recrossing
the Thames by Westminster Bridge
and jtben back to Buckingham Palace.
The procession will then pass through
the mos-.aristocratic, the most wealthy
and the most miserable parts of London. What a contrast between the
fash onable west end and the dingy
slums of La-mbeth!
The bast Heginjeiits of the British
Army will be used instead of police, tu
line tbs streets through which -the procession wi'l pass, ft will be a most
gorgeous one. The Queen's carriage
will be escorted by the Prince of
Wales on horseback. In the procession will be represented troops from all
parts of onr Empire. Prom the far
Commonwealth of Australia���From
the Great Dominion of Canada���from
the mighty Confederation in South
Africa���from our tributary kingdoms

will be represented. The carriages

An important circular letter from the
Bureau of statistics in the Provincial
Secretary's Department, Victoria, baa
been issued to all the merchants, traders, dealers and importers in the Province desiring information as to (he
value of goods imported and the freight
paid thereon; and also requesting information as to the value of wood,
fish, fruit and other products sent out
Irom the Province. The object for
tbis is to procure a reliable statement
us to the actual amount of oar trade
with the rest of the Dominion. Down
Easterners seem to think we bave not
got any trade, and that our Province
gets more consideration from the Dominion Treasury then she is entitled
to. The Bureau of Statistics desire to
show we have got a trade and a large
one too, and thut our wishes are not
half considered cqmpared with the importance of our trade. It is to be
hoped that all those who have received
this circular letter will lose no time in
filling up the Schedule which accompanies the letter and returning ir. to
the Provincial Secretary's Department.

s.-.il   Duu.th  at Two Well-known In*
mate* of the Town.
We have the melancholy task this
week of chronicling tbe death of two
noted inmates of our town. Their
death was sudden and unexpected, the
result of a railway accident which occurred late last Saturday night, or
early on tha Sunday morning. Intelligence was brought to town early on
Sunday that Seldom Fed and Ex-Bays
had met with a serious accident on the
railway, that the former was killed
and the latter so iujursd that recovery
was hopeless.
The intelligence waa alae only too
true. Old Seldom Fed and E_-Raya
were two well-known characters about
town. They had been about all winter
and although their presence was tolerated, their actions were sometimes considered a nuisance. They were inoffensive iu their nature, but their habit
ol roaming about at all times and in
places where they were not desired oo.
casioually gave offence. Timid ladies
nnd children whom they met iu these
rambling rounds -tave tbem as wide a
berth as possible. They were however
harmless; and did not stand in much
dread of the inhabitants of Golden.
Tbey were an object of derision to the
canine species wbo often made them
the abject of their sportive frolics.
Pedro generally beaded the fray���but
Bottles was never nu active partisan,
he regarding them witb passive indifference.
Old Seldom Fed and his companion
Ex-Bays, the object of many a gibe
and geer and ridioule continued to hang
about tbe town and it appeared as il
tbey were to be in our midst for many
a day, when an unkind paragraph by
an unknown author appeared in our
columns suggesting that a man with a
big dog should chase them away. Why
they deserved thia indignity can only
be known to the writer or that paragraph. Thia waa the nnkiudest cut ol
all they had experienced since their
lirst arrival among us. How the information was conveyed to them, we
can only conjecture1, as we have not
been able to obtain any reliable information on thia point. The information
must/have reached them iu some way
as they seem to have taken the suggestion to heart and resolved to depart
before tbis indignity wus perpetrated
on them. ,
They were last seen alive on our
streets on Saturday' night about 9 o'clock and had then no intention of quitting town. Their resolution seems to
have been a sudden one. They nius'
have left the town sometime after tbis
hour and proceeded in the direction of
Donald, with what intention we do
not know ; whether it was to make
that town their future place of abode
shall never be known. If such was
their intention tbey evidently had
changed their minds after proceeding
along t he road as far aa Connor's ranch
because they seemed to have left the
road at this place and determined to
return back to Golden by rail. Alas
the best laid plans gang aft aglee.
Coining down on the railway, and a
little east from tbe ranch theyseemedto
have been overtaken by n heavy freight
train coining from the direction of
Donald���and apparently without any
warning of whistle for breaks down
tbey were speedily numbered among
the victims of a railway accident. The
death of Seldom Fed must have been
instantaneous but Ex-Hays was sadly
mangled and was in lingering agony
when the relief party from Goldeu who
hud been apprised of the accident
reached the place On its arrival it
was at once seen Old Seldom Fed was
beyond earthly aid, and that no medical skill could avail to save the life of
poor Ex-Ruys.'bi- even give tase to his
sufferings. After consultation it was
considered the most humane thing that
could be done would be to put an end
to his sufferings, instead, of allowing
.the agony to be prolonged.
The assistance of Archie and a fellow
townsman waa invoked, aud they
speedily arrived on the spot with
Remingtons and ss speedily terminated
existence by two well placed shots and
Ex-Rays instantaneously joined hie
companion in the far away land of beyond. .
Old Seldom Fed bad arrived at a
mature age but his companion was not
so full in years and neither of them
had reached the allotted span. We
will not say a gloom-was cast over the
town, but they were the subjcot of
many a mournful reference in the
course of tbat day.
