Some three years ago Messrs. Mitchell-Innes were attracted to the district
of North East Kootenay by the reports
of its mineral wealth and prospects.
They took up a placer property on
Canyon Creek and spent considerable
money in preparatory work, which
they hope to resume before long. They
also took up properties on Toby Croek
and Prairie Mountain, on the latter of
which they have dono considerable
work. Last year the mining boom in
the Windermere district set in, as the
result of discoveries on Horsethief and
Toby creeks. Mr. W. G. Mitchell
Innes was one of the first to secure
locations on Horsethief Creek, and do-
velopment work was done on the property which is now known as the
Pretty Girl group. A company was
formed in London among Mr.Mitchell-
Innes's friends with sufficient capital
to fairly develop the properties which
he had acquired. This Company was
registered as the Golden British Columbia Limited. The development
work on the Pretty Girl group having
resulted in the discovery of a body of
excellent copper-silver ore, the Company was re-orgar,ised this year with
a larger capital (��60,000), and during
the present season work has been
pushed on at the Pretty Girl under the
foreuianship of Tom Jones, one of the
pioneer miners of the district. As a
brief review of the Company's operations will be of interest to our readers,
we have obtained from Mr. W. G.
Mitchell-Innes, manager of the Company, the following particulars of the
season's work.
IMt.-alKIE   1IQUXTAI-*.
This property consists of fourteen
claims. The work this season has
been limited to the necessary assessment, and has consisted of the continuation of the shaft on the Amy claim
of the group. In this shaft the lead is
widening out, and presents a good
well-defined ore body. Two tunnels
have also been driven, ono of 28 feet
and oue of SO feet. Further work will
be done on this property next season.
If the property gives satisfactory results with continued development it
will be ono of the biggest things in the
���pnuuE hou: tain.
The company also became interested
In the new copper discoveries made by
J. White and D. McDougal this season on Spruce Mountain on the Middle
Fork of the Spillimachene, The property is known as the Copper Ridge
group and development work has been
going on since its discovery.
On the Old Chum claim of this group
a tunnel has been driven for a distance
of 200 feet, and a shaft is now being
sunk on the body of rich grey copper
ore exposed in the open cut. This
siiaft is now down to a depth of 25feet
and will be sunk to GO or 70 feet.
There is a very good showing of ore in
this shaft. At Law's Creek, on the
siimo group, an open cut is being run
across the out crop of ore on the Mine-
haha Fraction, and it is intended to
run a tunnel on the lead here at the
best point. There is a gold-bearing
ledge running through the Old Chum
and Minehaha claims and this is now
being developed by way of stripping
over its hingth. It is also intended to
drive a tunnel at least 20 feet in
length on this lead. Two camps are
employed at' present on this group ol
Work has also been done this season
on the Dragon, Vulcnn and St, George
claims. The Dragon is a copper proposition, from which excellent assays
have been obtained, running about $50
ill value. Mr, Mitchell.Innes has
stuck well to North East Kootenay
and has the best wishes of the whole
district in the success of his enterprise.

Tbe transfer is recorded of the Eagle
Cliff claim, on Canyon Creek, from G.
Cassels to H. Estell.
Messrs. Kimpton, Starke and Harrison have about 35 horses engaged in
packing out ore from their claims dn
Toby Croek.
Messrs. Kimpton, Starke and Harrison have sent out to C. E. Well*, C. P.
R, agent here, a flue sample of 50 lbs.
of ore from their mine on Toby Croek,
to be forwarded to tlio Boston exhibition.
Capt. Bacon brought down on the
last trip of the Hyak seven tons of ore
from the Swansea mine for shipment
to tho Trail smelter. The Captain will
run the Hyak to Windermere on the
12th and 24th to bring down the other
shipments of ore now being got out.
T. Mercier, who has como in from
the Bugaboo, informs us that the
development work on theMorcier group
has improved the appearance of the
proper'.y a great deal and that the
Government export, Mr. Robertson,
was very highly pleased with what ho
saw of the prospect.
A meeting at Trail lias adopted a
resolution asking Mr. Bostock to
impress upon the Dominion Goverment
the necessity of amending item 273 in
the tariff act, so that lead ill bars and
sheet if smelted in Canada and sent to
a foreign country may be reimported
free instead of being subject to the
present duty of 25 per cent.
The Nelson Miner says: " Silver is
up to 65 516, aiid with it rise the
spirits of the Slocan. Every point of
increase moans much to that rich
region where production cannot be too
profitable to overtake the predictions
of well-wishers who believo the Slocan
to be, mile for mile, the greatest mining district in the world.
A meeting of the North Eust Kootenay Miuers Association will be convened early in Nov. when the officeis
and members can conveniently attend
Tho last meeting lapsed for want of
attendance and owing to so many of
the members being away in the mountains, but there is every reason to
believe that the Association can lie
reorganised during the wintor months
and will do as good work as it did last
J. M. Kellie, M.P.P., was in Golden
this .veek intending to look at some of
tho recent copper discoveries in the
district. Owing to the snowfall on the
mountains he considered he could not
see the properties well under the
circumstances and left on Wednesday
for the west. Mr. Kollie is representing a syndicate who have secured
about ten properties, including Mr.
Kellie's interests on Prairie Mountain,
where work will b': commenced as saon
as possible.
Within the short space of 30 years
the Calumet and Hecla mine has
yielded in dividends the enormous Bum
of $53,850,000, while its actual present
value is estimated at $55,000,000. For
several years past the Calumet and
Hecla has paid quarterly dividends ot
over $1,000,000, and its average net
earnings have exceeded ��'i,000,000 per
annum, or $20,000 for overy working
day of the year. To develop this groat
property cost $1,200,000, which has
returned more than forty fold. Twenty
thousand persons are dependent directly upon this one mine for their daily
bread and butter and the wages of the
workmen are the highest paid in any
mine of the kind in the world.

Major Walker.and Mr. P. McCarthy,
of Calgary, are doing work on their
copper property on Cascade Mountain.
The Elton property is looking well as
the result of ll,e work already dono on
it. For over a year Mr. P. McCarthy,
has been trying to interest a company
in Lonlou in lhe proporty in which
lie is interested at Illocillcwaet, and u
provisional agreement was emered
into last spring that thoy should send
out their managing director, who,
with the Company's mining engineer,
should examino tho property. This
was done and the Company have now
a number of men at work under another mining engineer. Thirty tons of
ore have been taken out, half ol which
it is proposed to send to San Francisco,
and the balance to Denver for tost
treatment. If that proves satisfactory
a sale will bo consummated.
Importation of HIj-li-Grmlai Stock.
J. L. Mackay arrived in Golden last
week with four c '-'iids of cattle
whicli the Company t\.r which he is
manager havo sent (or stocking tho
range which they had taken over In
the Columbia Valley. The stock included four pure bred Hereford bulls,
three pure-bred Durham bulls, ami 21
tlior.ug-lired heifers, of which seven
wero Herelords and 14 Durlinins.
There were also 60 calves, and a number of bioeding cows, nearly pure-braid
Durhaiiis, making 112 hoaal ot cuttle
in all. The shipment also inoluded
three pure-bred Yorkshire pigs, ono
Shropshire Down rainfor theMaokay's
ranch flock, and a number of Plymouth
Rock fowls.
The stock was imported from Prince
Edward Island and Nova Scotia, and
this importation marks a new period
in the history ot ranching in the Columbia Valley, There is no better
stock country in Canada than the
stretch ot country from Golden to Canal Flat, and visitors to the district
have been impressed with the successful results of stock-raising here by
thosowho have systematically gone
in for it. There is no doubt that
there is a great future for stock-raising in the Columbia Valley, where
ihere must always be a superior local
market, owing to the limked area of
laud available, aud the great mineral
resources of the district and consequent employment of  a laigo popula-
Gdlilen School.
The additions and alterations to the
Goldon school havo now been completed and have had the effect of making a
groat improvement on the old building.
The addition is 12 feet by 40 feet,
making a clear floor space of 40 feet by
32 feet. Two ventilators havo boen
put in. also two stoves for heating the
building during tho wintor months.
It is intended to utilise a good deal ot
the added wall space for blackboards.
A capital arrangement is in the lighting, the windows heing behind the
children, thus affording the most approved method of lighting for public
schools. The Golden school continues
to forge ahe.ul under the tuition of Mr.
Bales nml the average attendance is
now 48, as agaiustnn average of about
30 when he look charge, nn increase of
50 per cent. As there are iu tbo district a Dumber of children of school
age who are not attending school the
attendance might easily lie increased
sufficiently to wan-ant another teacher
lieing added to tlio staff of tho school.
There is a roomy porch, provided wilh
hat pegs for tlio use ot the children,
also a wood shed. Twelve new forms
made by Houston & Co. have been put
in. J. Henderson was the architect
and contractor for the building und
the way in which he has done tho
work is very creditable to him.
As the attendance of children at
school in cases where they are not receiving other education is compulsory
in th's Province, parents ought to
comply wilh the law and help the
school on all they can.
A Promising Centre,
The Hon. F. W. Aylmer has purchased from J. L. Mackay the block tf
land at the Salmon Beds. Mr. Aylmer
intends laying this out as a townsite.
Ho has a thorough knowledge of the
district from his long residence and
has regarded this piece of land as an
ideal townsite, being a natural junction for Toby, Horesethief and No, 2
("reeks, for tlio road between Kast and
West Kootonay over the divide, and
being tho only available site for a
bridge over the river for miles around
tliat locality, From the configuration
of the country an overhead bridge can bo
built thero so as not to interfere with
navigation aud yet bo always available
for traffic. As one of the pioneers of
the district we wish Mr, Aylmer huc-
ceas with his enterprise. Applications
have already been made to Mr. Aylmer
for a blacksmith's shop, store, and
hotel, the need cf which has been
greatly felt at that point during the
past summer by tho many prospectors
and mining men who have been
obliged to land or camp there.

Tht*  Copper Market.
The Mining Journal, London, in its
issue of the 2nd inst., makes the following interesting remarks upon the
copper market:
"This market is affected by considerable manipulation, and some of the
American producors, whose vocation
really is tosell large quantities of copper
to Europe (the United States being at
the best only consumers of part of
their own production), have lately not
only refrained from selling their own
stuff, but havo gene on buying copper
here in the open market, with the view
of improving prices and eventually
getting the European buyers to pay
them for their American copper higher
prices than those that havo been ruling;
from this it will bo seen that the position is to a great extent artificial.
Although this has up to the present
improved prices with us, there is
among dealers and consumers shaken
confidence, and we have to expect that
one of these days these purchases will
cease and be followed by heavy sales
of American material. Taking all
these facts into consideration, and
bearing in mind that the bulk of copper produced gives to the producer an
BiiormuB profit, it is not astonishing
that people prefer to leave the article
alone under present circumstances and
at present-prices, notwithstanding the
the "trumpet blowing, on the part of
some brokers and other interested
Tho two most critical times in a
woman's life are tho limes which make
the girl a woman, and the woman a
mother. At these times, Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription is of incalculable value. It strengthen! and invigorates the organs distinctly feminine,
promotes regularity of the functions,
allays irritation and Inflammation,
checks unnatural, exhausting drains,
and puts the whole delicate organism,
into perfect condition, Almost all the
ills of womankind are traceable to some
form of what is known as "female
complaint." There are not three cases
in a hundred of woman's peculiar diseases that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Proscription will not cute. 537
Ssveral residents of the district have
written asking us whether the Government intend keeping tho celebrated
Government team. Thoy point out
that it is an unnecessary expanse *o
keep a team of horses all the year
round for the sake of doing a month or
two's work when the work which this
team does could be done so much more
cheaply by the teams of settlors, who
have to keep horses in any case. Wa
have no doubt that the Hon. Mr,
Semlin will investigate this matter
along with the other abuses of his
department, and tbat tho Government
team, like others, will have to go to
make room for a better and more
economical method ef making and
maintaining the public roads,'whereby
tho settlers, who are the backbone of
the country, will have an opportunity
of carrying out these works with
better results than hitherto.

Exposing Their Tricks.
In an interview at Kelson, Hon. J,
F. Hume said: "A commissioner was
about to inquire into several doubtful
transactions which had come to light
in the lands and works department.
" One transaction wbieh would be carefully inquired into is what is known
as the Jevon contract. Mr. Jevon
had a contract with the late government in connection with the parliament buildings, and he received from
tho late government, just before the
elections, the sum of $30,000 which
it is contended, ho had no right to
receive, and for which no value was
received in the shape of work done.
It is claimed by the present government that this was a sop given for
political purposes.
11 On paying out this sum, the Turner government received a full receipt
for all work dono iu connection with
tho work; but,nevertheless,another bili
was soon received amounting to $!(��,-
000. The Turner government actually
referred this claim to arbitration.
Needless to say, the present government ha I cancelled the arbitration
agreement,"���Nelson Miner.

When Mr. Hul; was in towulast
week we interviewed him with reference to the complaint made about the
nuisance caused at thu Hospital by the
slaughter-house. Mr. Hull sand he
had boon to sco thecause ol tho trouble
and had found the sluughtor-liouse
well kept. He considered that, there
was something very inconsistent in
the oiiicials complaining about ^the
sl��ughtur-house, especially as, on
making enquiry, he found it difficult
to ascertain the origintof the complaint.
Mr. Hull further complains that the
authorities, have, located���the public
nuisance ground a few hundred yards
from the Hospital, and he considers
that atnder the circumstances part of
the nuisance complained of must arise
from that. Mr. Hull said he had been
very willing to meet the people of
Oolden in any reasonable way iu
regard to this slaughterhouse. On a
former occasion they had complained
to him when it was located behind A.
C. Hamilton's stables und he had then
said that if the people of the town at
that time would select u place where
it would no longer be a nuisance to
them he would remove it to that place
The people selected the present site aud
he removed it there at his own expense.
He now considers ic unfair that he
should be asked to again remove it
from tho very site which the poople
themselves hid already seleoted as
being least likely to_cnusa nuisance;
especially seeing that he hud bought
from the Government the lot on which
tbo slaughter-house stands, and had,
at the time when he purchased it,
pointed out the purpose for whicli it
would be used. He had also incurred
considerable expense in erecting crib
work as a protection againt encroachments from the river. Mr. Hull blames
the Hospital authorities for locating
the Hospital on its present site seeing
that the slaughter-house was there
when the site was selected. Under the
circumstances he considers that he is
not justiiied in again incurring tho
expense of removing the slaughterhouse. If the people of the town with
the slaughter house removed as being
a nuisance he is willing that it be
done providing ho is provided with a
suitable piece of land und is recouped
for tho expense occurred, in which
caso he would hand^thom over the lot of
Iand,occupiedby the present slaughterhouse.

Speaking of Golden; a writer in the
N. W. Magazine says : " Across the
Columbia, rising in forest-clothed
beauty and melting away in the distance, we see the Selkirk Mountains,
while parallel with thein, o. the eastward side, rango upon range, rise the
western slopes of tho Rockios, Golden
is a rapidly-growing mining town of
1,500 population, and is tiie point of
departure for the East Kootcna/ mill

Premier Semlin was tendered a
magnificent reception in the Town
Hall of Ashcroft last Monday night.
Everyone tamed oat to do honor to
the Leader of the new Goverement. He
was presented with a congratulatory
address as follows:
To the Hon. Charles Augustus Semlin,-
Sir,���It is with unmixed pleasure
that we of this District, where
you have resided, and where
your daily .presence and influence
have been felt, where everyone knows
you, aud feels glad of the faot, have,
on this your temporary return to our
midst seized the opportunity to tonder
to you our warm aud sincere congratulations on becoming tho Prime Minister
of the Province of British Columbia
and the bearer of the highest gift of its
We know, Sir that tbe higher the
position the greater are the attendant
responsibilities, but are confident that
your integrity and ability, the two
qualities of your character met forcibly demonstrated to us, coupled with
your experienoo as representative of
our distriot, and aa late Leader of Her
Majesty's loyal Opposition will enable
you to become known and respected as
thoroughly by the whole Province as
we kuow and respect you, and than
this we can ask for you nothing
That your sphere of action and usefulness has been increased is a matter
of congratulation no doubt to yourself but also to your friends, to your
constituents, and to 'he whole
You have for four years fought an uphill battle ia which you have overcome
many difficulties, and availed yourself of every opportunity���a battle
which we here know hns been fought
at great sacrifice of vour own interest
aud has caused you many weary
hours���but your efforts have been
crowned with success, and that success has come at a time whioh called
for a man to fill the first position in the
land, and the Province feels confidence
iu its selection,
Hitherto you have been our renresen-
tuive, but today we meet you for Iho
first time as tho representative of the
whole Province, aud feel condfient that
overy resource of the whole Mainland
and island will be looked into and
that the reigu of sectionalism, favor-
. i.' Ism, uaipotiaau and cowardice, before
D.'ro ig corporations, is past, and tho
icigii of liberal, progressive, just and
fair administration cf ihe affairs of
Hie whole Province is at hand. Such
air, we feel assured, is your ambition
intention and aim.
We are wili) believe that theclosin.-
years of ai old century and the opening years of a new one are fraught
with affairs of importance, and on you
Sir, it rests to control tho destinies of
this Province during all tbat time.
We feel confidence in the result.
This Province has nil the natural
resources to make her great that Ihe
British Empire had in the days past.
We hope under her flag in the near
future to show her our possibilities,
our capabilities, our wealth, and to
take rank as the first Province in our
Dominion -that Dominion which now
Is the greatest of tho British possessions, and the development of this
power lies in your hands.
In conclusion allow us, Sir, to once
more cordially congratulate you on the
proud position which you to-day bold,
and to ox press the wish that you may
long be spared to guide the destinies of
British Columbia.
Hon. Mr. Semlin replied in fitting
terms to the address.

"I am tired and weary of this continued life of misery snd suffering I"
This is the heart wail of thousands of
poor, nervous sleepless men and
women crazed with headache, rheumatism, neuralgia, dyspepsia and blood
troubles. Such people usually are
filled wi'.b gloom nnd despondency,
memory fails, and they are often
found on the straight path that leads
to the dark grave.
Have courage, suffering brothor and
sister I Paine's Celery Compound has
cured thousands of cases in the past
far more desperate and terrible than
yours. It has proved an agent of life
to others, and it will certainly do as
much for you in this your timo of adversity nnd distress.
What will yOur decision be sufferer ?
Will you allow the many symptoms of
disease and death to more fully develop,
or will you, by the aid of nature's
medicine, Paine's Celery Compound,
strike just now  at the root of your
trouble and be made sound, healthy
and bappy ?
The ablest physicians admit that
Paine's Celery Compound is the only
true nerve food and medioine that has
ever been given to suffering humanity.
It strengthens and builds up the nerves,
tissues and muscles, it purifies the life
stream, casts ont disease of every form,
giving a fresh existence and a long and
happy life. A trial of one bottle will
convince you that Paine's Celery Compound is a life-saver and a disease
banisher. 535

They Mislead and Deceive Inexperienced Women.
Home enemies in the form of package dyes and dyes composed of a large
proportion of common soap and very
little coloring matter, are creating
great loss and consternation in many
homes. These deceptive dyes that
only benefit the manufacturer and retailer wilh fat profits, mislead aud ale-
ceive inexperienced women. Tne
women who regularly uso the Diamond

Dye users find in the Diamond Dyes
all that lhe manufacturers promise -
purity, fastness, fullness of color and
great brilliancy. To those who have
been deceived by cheap, trashy dyes,

amount which the members should
contribute to the funds of the church,

require them to give one-tenth of
their individual earnings. The committee to whom the matter was referred, reported to the conference In favor
of the principle of the people giving a
tenth of their incomes to the church.

Reforming the Civil Service,.-Semlin
Government Iwlll Appeal to tbe
The Winnipeg Tribune reports the
following interview with the Hon.
Joseph .Martin, attorney-general of li.
C.: "Mr. Martin smiled when the
reporter told him of the reports that
had come over Ihe wires of his inves-
gntion of the government offices and
Sliding of officials therein who could
not give a statement of what they were
employed to do. In reply to questions
on this line he stated that thero had
been undoubtedly a number of unuecs-
sary offices under tbe old government
and that they proposed to immediately
set to work to reform these things.
He could not predict how much of a
saving they would make in the running of the machine of government,
but at all events they would introduce
economical methods and put things on
a businesslike basis. He expected a
very considerable saving. It was im
possible to compare the cost of government in British Columbia aud Manitoba, because the former province
controls its lands, mines, etc., nnd
these while sources of revenue require
departments to manage them.
Asked how much of a majority the
new government bad Mr, Marti i said,
in bis usual off-hand manner, but
looking not in the least worried over
it, that tliey had iione. That is if the
independents voted against the government ii would be in the minority.
"But the governmont don't seem to
be worrying over the situation?"
queried tho reporter.
"Of course not for in that case
there would lie an appeal to tho coun
try. Mr. Martin didn't finish the
sentence, but it was evident that bo
felt no feor in the evont of another
general election."

Hit Right Leg Swollen to Three Times

and for a Tear and a Half Doctors'
Treatment Failed to Help Hloi.
From the Fort Hope Times.
"It was nearly as largo as that telephone pole." Theso words were used
by Mr. Jas. Crosgroy, for eight years
a resident of Port Hope, Ont, Mr.
Crosgrey is in the employ ot Mr. R. K.
Scott, who has a feod store on Walton
street, and is well and favorably known
in town and vicinity. Less than two
vears ago Mr. Crosgrey was the recipient of much sympathy on account ot
a ^severe affliction which hefel him,
depriving him of the use of his right
leg, and from doing any labor except a
tow odd days work. His recovery was
wrought so suddenly and completely
that the Times considered the matter
would be of sufficient interest to its
readers to obtain an interview with
Mr. Crosgrey. In substance Mr. Crosgrey told the following story of his
illness:- "In April, 1895,1 was laid up
for seven weeks with typhoid fever,
and after I recovered from the fever
iny right leg began to swell. It was
very painful indeed, and iua few weeks
it was three times its natural size-
nearly as large as that telephone pole,"
and he pointed to a stick of timber ten
inches in diameter. "Nothing tbe
doctor did gave me any relief, and I
consulted another with the same result. I suffered for nearly five months
when I noticed that the swelling began
to decrease and I became hopeful of
recovery. But the improvement only
continued for a short time and then
the swelling became greater and two
big ulcers formed on the insido of the
leg above the ankle. These ulcers
were right through to tho bono and
you could put that much into them."
and Mr. Crosgrty indicated on his
thumb an object an inch in length
"For the next year and a half I was
treated by four or five doctors but my
leg and the ulcers wero as bad as ever.
The doctors pronounced the disease
phlebitis or inflamiition of the veins
They didn't seoui io know what to do
for ine, however, and I despaired of
getting well." Mr. Crosgrey's relief
camo in a strange manner, almost by
chance one might say. He tells of it
this way:���'I had a relative living
near. Tees water, named William Baptist. He heard of my condition nud
sent word to me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. His reason f jr recommending them, he stated was because they
had cured him of serious trouble iu
both legs, when all else hud faiiod.
decided to try thorn and in less than
five weeks the ulcers wero completely
healed and tho swelling in my legs disappeared. The ulcers never returned
and my leg is just about ns sound as
tho other one. I know that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills alono cured ine when
doctors and all others medicines failed
and I am willing that the details of my
illness and cure ho made known." Mr.
Crosgrey, who is 41 years of ago, is now
at work every day. The nature of his
work, that of lifting heavy bags of
flour and feud, is proof ot his complete
recovery. Ho is a life long friend of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pillsand never lets
an opportunity pass of speaking a good
word for them.

Rates to Westinlnaiter Exhibition.
Mr. E. J. Coyle, District Passenger
Agent, Canadian Pacific Railway Co.,
has i sued a circular giving effect to
the following rates in connection with
the Westminster exhibition : ���
Illecillewaet   $1440
Glacier  14.90
Beavcrinouth  15.00
Donald  15.95
Golden   1G.45
Palliser  lfi.85
Field  17.45
Hector    17.70
Laggan  18.G0
Those rates nro excpiionnlly low, in
fact the C.P.R. has been more liberal
iu its endeavor to foster and make successful the Provincial Exhibition to be
held iu New Westminster than the
railway companies make for similar
exhibitions in Eastern Canada. It is
expected that the attendance from the
interior will be very large. The rate
is made as an experiment, nnd heavy
ticket sales will no doubt cause the
C.P.R. to treat future Provincial exhibitions in a liko liberal manner.
Iu addition, the railway company
has arranged for tho free transportation of exhibits. Shippers of exhibits
will puy regular rates to New Westminster, and providing same do not
change hands they will be returned
free to starting point and tho exhibitors refunded charges paid into New
Miners! The way for yon to succeed
is to make known the resourccis of

send news of your finds to the Goldish
