The fact that at this time, passed
the middle of May, the snow is nearly
seven feet deep in the mourtaius, has
given rise to the fear of a repetition of
tho disastrous floods of 1894. Everything points to this end. The mountaineers who were here nt thut time
say that the conditions which prevail
now are much the same as those which
caused tbe t'liuds in the summer of
1894. Should the present cool weather
continue nnd the snow which is now
disappearing but very slowly, remains
until the first of next month, severe
floods are inevitable for hot weather is
sure to follow us a natural consequence

Till: Toronto Globe of recent dute
gives a lengthy sketch of the political
situations in the various ridings of
liritisli Columbia, Respecting Yale-
Cariboo, the writer, who is a resident
of British Columbia, snys: The last
constituency to be discussed is that of
Yale Cariboo, in which for the first
time a Liberal is in the field with his
policy of tariff reform, no coercion aud
pure administration nailed to the mast
hand. He is a gentleman of means,
one who has vast interests iu the d!s-
triot us well us elsewhere iu the Province, und is n Liberal of the English
nuliO-1, In Mr Hewitt Bostock Mr.
J. A Murn, who hr.s represented the
constituency -or ruther the Yule division of it-since 1877. is meeting with
a foeman worthy of his steel. Mr.
Bostock lias been iu the field for some
time. He has made, and is still making, a personal uanvass of the riding,
a tusk which, in consequence of its
cxtensiveuess, is not by uny menus nn
easy one. Being n resident agriculturalist, miner, inventor, and capitalist, he has already secured u strong
hold on the good-will of the electors.
He became a candidate of his own volition, but the Liberals are giving bitn
their solid support. Should there tie
no change in the sentiments of the
electors ere polling dav the chances
will be largely iu favor of Mr.Bostock.
Mr. Murn hus been a resident of the
riding for many years. He, too, has
large interests therein, hut for some
reason or other he is not popular with
the electorate. Some allege tht.t he is
intensely selfish, and in dealing with
public affairs tlie manner in which his
vote or conduct is going to affect John
A. Mara is his first consideration.
With his brother-in-law, Mr. P. S.
Burnnrd, M.P. for Curiboo, he is
largely interested in transportation
concerns in the interior, a fact which
does not strengthen hiin in the estimation of those for whom they carry
good, or passengers, the belief being
general that the rates charged are excessively high.
Nelson Tribnne: 'lhe Crow's Nest
Puss railway loan was dropped by the
government, and the fact is deplored
by the News-Advertiser, of Vancouver.
That paper is inclined to hold the
opposition responsible for the dropping
The News-Advertiser is wrong. Had
tbe government meant to make tbe
loan, they would not have waited until thc lust day of tbe session before
introducing it; they would have introduced it early in tho session, and it
would have been passed. The session
was frittered away in attempting to
puss legislation thut would not benefit
tbe people of Ciinudu, however much
it might please n religious faction. The
News-Advertiser lays the Illume ac tbs
wrong door. Instead of laying the
bluine at the door of the opposition, it
should Iny the blame on the six members from British Columbia who voted
for the second reading of the Remedial
Bill, One of the six is trying to get
buck to Parliament from a district
through which the Crow's Nest Puss
roud will run, and whose prosperity
would be increased by its building It
is the plain duty of every elector in
Kootenay to place the blame where it
belongs, and il they do John Andrew

parliament of tbe Dominion of Canada.
Any one who has ever had an attack
of inflammatory rheumatism will rejoice with Mr. J. A. Stumm, 220 Boyle
Heights, Los Angeles, over his fortunate escape from a seice of that distressing ailment. Mr. Stumm is foreman of Merriam's confectionery estitb-
lishment. Some months ago. on leaving the heated work room to run across
the street on an errand, he was caught
out in the rain. The result was thai
when ready to go home that night be
wns unable to walk, owing to inflammatory rheumatism. He was taken
home, and on arrival was placed in
front of a good fire and thoroughly
nibbed with Chamberlain's Pain Balm
During the evening and night he was
repeatedly bathed with this liniment,
and by morning was relieved of ull
rheumntic puins. He now takes
especial pleasure in praising Chamberlain's Pain Bulm. and always keeps a
hottle of it iu tlie house. For sale by

Rosslaiid Miner: It is now definitely decided that the C.P.R. will not
build directly iutu Rosslaiid this year.
It will build from opposite Robson to
Trail and will utilize the narrow gauge
for whatever Rossland business it may
get. It is proposed to lay a third mil
ou the ties of the narrow gauge and
linnl standard gauge curs over the roud
with the narrow gauge engines of tlie I rulers we have (lj A tariff that pro-
Columbia and Western.    It is dimmed  tects the rich man at thoexpenseof the
Donald  Doing..
With mere luck than she is entitled
to, Donald on Saturday evening the
9th, had the good fortune to have a
political meeting nnd to hear, in the
Oddfellows hall, the views of the Liberal party explained by intelligent
Mr. Pitts, who nade an admirahle
and fair-minded chairman, in a few-
pithy sentences introduced the speaker
of the evening, Mr. Hewitt Bostock,
who showed very succes.fully to the
Donald what be was driving at and
told them succinctly and clearly why
they should oppose the present government and the C.P.R.
Mr. Bostock's arguments were in
short, that  under our present paternal
that this bus been done before and can
lie worked successfully again. This
decision of the C.P.R. is in line with
every otlier move it has ev.'i* made in
the Kootenay country. It is quite
evident thnt Mr. Heinze has hypnotised it just as he hypnotised the Provincial Government into giving him a
land   grant   for a railroad lie had ai-
poor man; (2) That this much vaunted
tariff has protected and made a few
millionaires at the expense of the rest
of the Dominion; (8) That discrimination has lieen used in the awarding of
contractt, particularly the mail service in British Columbia; (4) That we
have in this enlightened age of ours a
company created, backed up, and kept
ready built.    If the C.P.R. can do tht ' going by the peoi-IjB of CANADA that
business   ot   this section on the basis I hus ths supreme impudence to tell nvm
proposed we shall be greatly surprised.
Of course if the Conservatives carry
the country at tlie general election Sir
William Vun Home may secure some
protection for Dominion (?) interests in
West Kootenay  whicli will compel us
how thev   will exercise one of the few
God-given   rights    they    ha��e-the
Other points very effectually touched
on were, the great Remedial Bill, Sir
Charles Tapper's  idea of how Cana
dian politics should be remodelled to
suit him and another Family Compact
established in this Canada of Ours.
However as these points were not exactly local the Liberal standard-bearer
dismissed them without, discussion,
nnd in closing appealed to his auditors
to vote according to their consciences
and to disregard the consequences
Mr. Bostock was followed by Mr, A.
G. M. Spragge, who is an advocato of
the C.P.R , who ol course is an advocate of the perpetuation of Tupperism,
and who of courso as a LAwYElt is
looking after No, 1.
Mr. Spragge is, as he said himself, n
lawyer but-and wo suy it with
pain-he is a terribly poor logician, he
utterly ignores the middle term, in
fact be uses what we think John
Stuart Mill might quote as a glaring
example of tbo undistributed middle.
Of course Mr. Spragge spoke as a
lawyeii otherwise we should not have
mentioned these facts, but facts is
facts us thu gentleman in question
knew to his sorrow when he attempted
to give us facts and figures.
Mr. Carney followed the lawyer
who looks after the legal interests of
our town, and with true Irish wit
metaphorically speaking, turned Mr.
Spragge inside out, this operation was
not to our legal friend's liking, and an
unseemly exhibition of temper is under
uny circumstances, for a man who indulges in farensic arguments, slightly
infra dig. Of course this is Mr.
Sprugge's uffuir not ours.
Mr. Carney in his able speech knocked-to use au Irishism���smithereens
into the beautiful ideas advanced by
the M.P. who holds that boats must
run ou the Columbia without fear of
obstruction, even if it take tin appropriations for the ivhole district,
Mr. Carney's open challenge to the
Divisional Superintendent ...isa telling
stroke, iu fact u knock down ulow, so
much so thut when the eloquent gentleman bud sut down amid tumultuous
applause, nobody seemed willing to
take up cudgels for the other side,
which iu our town amounts to the
C.P.R. Mr. Pitts therefore very appropriately dismissed n lovul und essentially Bostock audieuo with the
National Anthem.
The pedagogue who has lately had
more time than money aud who certainly hns less bruins than either resumed his duties on Monday last.
Mr. Aylmer and Mr. Leake were in
town last week listening to the supporters of the little Frenchman.
Whether the arguments advanced had
the desired effect on them time alone
will tell.
Mr. George Bolton, a cousin of Mr.
Harry Bolton and direct from the old
sod, arrived iu town last week und
will make his home with us for a
month or so.
The adrance agent of the theatrical
company either disagreed with the
show or the show disagreed with him
as he hus returned to town and his
Mr. A. G. M. Spragge, accompanied
by Mr. R. M Murpole left on Monday's
No. 1 for Kumloops. It isMr.Spragge's
intention to give Main's supporters oi
i hat place !��� few pointers on how to conduct n political campaign. Hs is well
qualified to do so und if he succeeds in
espousing his friend's cause as well in
Kumloops us he did in Donald there is
uo question but that Mr. Bostock will
have even a bigger majority there than
he will have at Donald.
In fact it is the honest wish of all
Liberals that Mr. Spragge will follow
up Mr, Bostock and Mr. Carney. His
peculiar style of eloquence helps their
chances wonderfully.while it is almost
certain to be hurtful to those of the
commodore of the Columbia river

In perusing the columns of last
week's Era I must compliment the
Editor, there being u lot of useful information on mining matters. I am
sure the general editor and boss David
would not rcfttso to publish any useful
correspondence. I culled at his office
last week and found him up to his
eyes in business. I found him very
gentlemanly anu courteous In taking
a lonely stroll around Golden I was
agreeably surprised at the appeorauce
of the place, and I am informed there
is a lnrge amount of business done con
sidering its size. Mr. AlcDerinot, of
the log store does quite a general
trade. He is introducing something
new in th* way of ladies bicycles.
Mr. Chas. Warren a modest bachelor
and the geninl post master of Golden
is alive to the wants of the people in
keeping a nice stock of general goods.
His assistant Mr. Brock is quite a
ladies favorite, always has a smile and
a good word for the Indies.
There is tlie general store ot H. G.
Parson, whicli, I am informed, k'.eps
an A 1 stock of dry goods and groceries
and in fact all kinds of general goods.
With regard to his staff of clerks I
will leave that to <he public to puss an
opinion on. H. G. Parson is always
found at his office. If lie should succeed and make enoug'i money tc retire
and go into politic?, I would advise
tho government to give him an appointment in the finance department.
There is Hull Bros, meat market,
managed by Mr. Woodley, who is
committing murder every day in trying to supply tbe people with good
meats. What about Mr. Oreene, proprietor of tlie Queen's Hotel, the leader
of tho liberal party. I found hiin a
jolly, good hearted North of Ireland
man, has a head as large ns his body.
H. D. Hume, proprietor of the Kootenay house a jolly, quiet sort of fellow,
always has a good word for all. Billy

The British Columbia Minors' Association is taking steps to test the
validity of the claims of the assessment uut which imposes a tax ou tliu
gross output of quartz mines.

from Ousis, iu Utah, conies the report
thut u ptyschaporia kittgi or prehistoric crab lias been found which is
coveted with silver. Capt. Richards
also says that "the lime which finds
a market at tlie smelters contains au
average of 95 a ton in silver, and thut
this paid all costs of production and
transportation, leaving tlie value of
the lime u clear earning"
Mr. Aylmer wits down from his
mine at Buguboo on Sunday last, uud
reports favorable of the work doue
there, He is driving a tunnel of some
length to strike tlie lead, which lie
thinks to reach ubout tho cud of June.
His property is without doubt one of
the most valuable in tlie district, and
if when he reaches the vein at, a point
further along the lode, it proves to
carry more gold than tlie croppings it
will bea very valtiubie property indeed
We wish hiin every success.
inet is mora tbau the people of Canada
will stomach. Hundreds of Conservatives in British Coliiniliia will stay nt
lioini* or vote for Grit candidates,
rut her than vote the Tupper family
into o.'Iice. No self-respecting Conservative in Kootenay will vote for
John Andrew Mara on that uccount,
for they know that he is u man without the slightest trace of independence
in Ii is makeup. Were he elected he
would siiiii'ly be one of the 'flippers.
Some very eminent men are agitating for a new division of tlie ..ear.
permitting ns to have thirteen mouths
in pluce of twelve, and they suggest to
put llie new plan iuto vogue on Jun.
1900. If such a plan wore adopted
the first twelve months would have
just twenty-eight days and the new
month twenty-nine and thirty days
in leap year. Tlie advantage of this
appears to be that after a few years
there would be no need to refer to a
calender, as the same day of the week
would have the same date throughout
the yenr. For iussiitice if 1st January
were Monday every .Monday through
ihe .vour would come on the 1st; 8th,
loth and 22w\ ot euch mouth. The
change of ihu moon would be on or
about the same dales ull the year
round, and many calculations ol like
interest, dates of maturing notes,
changing High days would be very
much simplified.
