Dangers of the Rapids.
Malcolm. McDonald and W. Tolton,
of Beaver, the latter partner of Scott.
who left for Tete Jiiuue Cache last
week, returned to Donald j-rstcrday,
and reported the first fatality nttuch*
intc to the Tete Jaune Cache gold excitement. It will be remembered that
McDonald and hit mute, A. Mnchette,
left Golden �� fortnight ngo in a boat
which iliey built here, taking with
them 120011m. of provisions. At Kin-
biieket Lake thoy were joined by Tolton, and deaidod to run tho rapids on
the Columbia River between Kinbasket
Lake aud the confluence with Canoe
River. All went well till tho boat
reached 21-mile rapid, niue miles from
Cauoo rivefr. where bout struck a rock
and upset. Tolton and Machette in
the boat at the time. Tolton saved
himself by stronuoue efforts'and Machette was drowned. McDonald was
within a mile of the scene ot tho accident when it happened. The supplies
were all lost and Tolton and McDonald
decided to return by tho trail to Donald and come on to Oolden. This is
the second attempt that McDonald has
made to reach the Cache and he hus
met with such misfortune on both
attempt:! that he has had to return.
The rapids where the accident happened are well-known to be amongst the
most dangerous on tlio river, and
claimed many a victim in tho days of
tho old placer mining excitement.
Some anxiety is felt for Scott, who
is on His way by boat expecting 10
pick up his partners at the mouth of
Canoe River. There was no means of
warning hiin and as be is very short
of supplies he is in danger df undergoing great hardship il not losing his

Mr. E. A. Haggen,
Goldeni B.C.
Dear Sir.���I enclose you a ltttter received from the Minister of Public
Works in reference to the protection of
the hank at Carbonate. He evidently
couside.'S that this is a Provincial
matter und X think that his contention is the right ono. Believe me,
Yours faithfully,
Hkwitt Bostock.

ot Canada, Ottawa 20th May, '1)9.
Hewitt Bostock, Esq., 11.P.,
Dear Bostock,���I am in receipt of
your letter of Ma.v the 19th re encroachments of tho Columbia river on the
roadway and in reply beg to say that
the Government ennnot undertako to
protect the shores of the rivers. Giving additional depth of water for navi-
gation purposea and protecting the
shores of rivers are altogether different
things. It is out of the question then
for the department of Public Works to
entertain the idea ot spending any
money in the way you suggest.

Prospectors   Coming
From Other Points.
Wining Companies get to Work.
Wonderfully Succesful Flotation of the Certainty
Our predictions that 1809 will prove
a bu.inei- year tor North East Kootenay
ure being realised. Prospectors are
coming in from Revelstoke and other
points, attracted by the well-known
gold-copper prospects of North East
Kootenay. We havo to thank the
boom in copper for this lucky turn of
the tide aud now tboro is every prospect that the great utoros ot wealth
undoubtedly lyiug in the mountains of
North Ea��t Kootenay will he developed
in a business-like way. The flotation
of tbe Certainty Company in Quebec,
with head*qiinrters at Waterloo, hns
boeu a wonderful success, and 275,000
of the 1,500,000 shares of the nominal
value of $1 representing* tho capital of
tiie Company were disposed of iu u
fortnight, so thnt tho Company lias
ample funds in hand to take up prospects und develop them in a businesslike way. The directors uud officers
aeoui to be the right mon. They are
putting their enterprise on a sound
tooting and we hope thut the result of
development work will he to prove that
they have a copper mine that will be a
steady producer and dividund payer.
In the Certainty group on Fifteen Mile
Creek, Mr. T. A. Knowlton has laid
before this company a promising prospect, but it ie only by underground de*
velopment thai its value can be proved.
We are glad to say that the Government are assisting tiie enterprise in
every legitimate way, and this week
mini were put on under the Company's
foreman, J. Noble, to get the Fifteen
Mile Creek trail opened out so that
supplies can be got iti. As soon as
the snow is off the mount-tin, probably
by noit week, work will bo started on
the mine, and pushed forward With
two shifts. The Company's operations
arc in charge of E. A. Haggen.
An English and an American cyndi-
cttio are al*o negotiating about
properties on Fifteen Mile Creek, whicli
gives evei-y promise of developing into
a good copper cainp. This camp hus

The Kootenay Consolidated Mining
and Development Company have put
funds in the treasury for the effective
development of both the Bennison and
Crown Point properties this season nnd
work will be bugun on these at an
eni'ly date. The many friends of
Major Clohecy, who haa proved one of
the best and most business-like of
mine managers in the Kootenay*!, will
be glad to see him back iu Golden to
push on the development work.
The Golden British Columbia, nnder its active Manager, W. G. Mitchell.Innes, also intends making things
hum. Mr. Innes appears to have
secured some good things for his Company aad wc all hope they will turn
out as they promise   .
A move is heing mado to get a diamond drill into Spillimaclicno mountain to test tbe copper deposits there.
H. Croft, M.E., will bd in Golden
shortly to put in work on the iino cop*
per prospect which his company lias
secured ut Spilliniachene.
Tho Swansea will go ahead, and the
improvement in the prospects of this
mine under development hus astonished
R, A. Kimpton and his partners in
tho Dolphins have pushed on work on
this property most creditably and
their work has boon a splendid example to the men who take up prospects
and lie down beside them A-nltlng for
something to turn up,* instead of opening up their ground and showing what
it contains.
Windermero line also two good men
at work iu Messrs. Starbird and Collet
aud these gentlemen have done much
to bring Windermere to tho trout as a
mining camp by their active development work.
The owners of the Lucky Jaok group
of claims at tbe Burns Basin have also
started active development work and
John Henderson went out on Friday
with men and supplies to drive a tunnel of 100 feet.

Departure of Prospectors.
Thn first pack train of ten horses,
carrying about a ton of supplies, weut
out this morning for Tete Jaune Cache,
This comprised Sprott's anil Deacon's
outfit. Another party will start tomorrow and further parties will follow
almost daily. The large party being
sent by W, G. Mitchell-Innes will
leavo Golden on Sunday morning. The
boat has been completed and launched
on the Kicking Horse. Siie is named
the Good Luck and will be in command of Capt. Hatch, who will take
her down the Columbia to Beaver. A
carload of supplies has been shipped to
Beaver, and this and other boats sent
by rail will be loaded up there and
taken down tho Columbia river. The
pack trains will meet tho boats at Surprise Rapids and portage the supplies
there. After being lowered through
the rapids, the boat will again loud up
and take the supplies to the rapids
below the lake where they will again
unload to tho puck train. This plan
of operation will have the advantage
that it will lighten tho travel for the
horses, especially over the snow clad
summit between Donald and Bush river
F. Holiday, Morin and party will
stari ou Monday. Freds services as
an experienced prospector have been in
demand in packing up in a suitable
way for the trip tbo supplies derived
from the different merchants. He has
also beeu Commissioned by the Government to build a bridge over Wood river.
As this has been a dangerous crossing
the work will be a great convenience
to the gold-seekers travelling the trail.
The secret of Price's rapid return to
the Cache is out. He has evidently
written A. Stewart, of Edmonton,
stating he was going back to locate
gold quartz. At least this is tho
statement of theEdmontoo Bulletin.
Frauk Berthiaume is taking the two
Government boats that will be placed
on Bush river down with him. The
boats are being shipped to Beaver and
will betaken down the river from there.

An Associated Press dispatch from
Taconm announces that the largest
stamp mill iu tho world was started up
on May IH by D.O. Mills at the Tread-
well mine, un Douglas Island, Alaska.
The new milt contains IJ0 batteries of
five stamps each, with a crushing
capacity of four tons to each B't&mp
every ��4 hours.
The Tread well and its associated
mines now have 850 stamps in operation. They cfush 3620 tons of oro
every 2t hours, averaging about $4 per
ton in gold, or Sl4,000daily Oue third
of thiS output is settled in concentrates
and shipped to the Tacoroa smelter.
The clher two-thirds, or 89,380 per
day is the amount of gold actually te-
leaded on Douglas island.

also reiterated their views ou curtailing the expenditure on the wagon,

money for the opening up of the Win-.
ing camps by trails, as this policy*,,
would be much more beneficial td the
district for the present by promoting'
the development of the mineral resources.
It wai- also decided to point out tC.
Mr. Wells that the success of the Tete,

because thia particular organ ii shackled by disease���and yet how many times has Dr.
Agnew's Curo for the Heart brushed against tho grim reaper and robbed him of his victim.
Diseases of tbe heart are by far the most treacherous of ailments which afflict humanity���ruthless
to old and young alike���not insidious but violent, for when the heart foils the whole system
suffers violence. Discussing causes here will not
console the suffering one. The one great yearn of
the heart-.sickened patient is how to get relief and x
cure. Dr. Agnew'a Core for the Heart stands preeminently to-day as the star of hope to sufferers front
heart trouble, and so far past the experimental period
that thousands to-day proclaim, in no uncertain sound*,
the belief that were it not for this great remedy they
world have long ago passed into the great beyond.
Most eminent doctors, whom heart cases have baffled, have
tested Dr. Agnew's claims, and to-day they prescribe it in
their practice as the quickest and safest heart remedy known
to medical science. What are the symptoms ? Palpitation, fluttering, shortness of breath, weak and irregular pulse, swelling of
feet and ankles, pain in the left side, chilly sensations, fainting
spells, uneasiness in sleeping, dropsical tendency and as many
more indications that the heart Is deranged. Dr. Agnew'a
Cure for tbe Beart is n heart specific; and no case too acute
to find relief from it inside of thirty minutes���a powerful cure.
Mrs, Jno. Fitzmtrick, of C.ananoque, Ont,, after having been treated
by eminent physicians for heart disease of five years' standing, waidla-
cliaryi.il from the hospital as a hopeless incurable. She suffered from
acute pain and palpitation, her feet and ankles swollen, and there was
every tendency to the dropsical form of heart disease, but the lady procured Dr. Agnew's Cure for the Heart as she declared, as a last hope.
One dose relieved her of a very acute spasm In leu than thirty minutes,

Contractors and Carpenters Have Sot
Selected the Arbitrators to
Settle the Strike.
Winnipeg, May 20.-��� The holiday
had the effect of delaying progress in
the settlement of the carpenter's strike.
The greater part of the day being spent
iu getting the men together to decide
on an arbitrator to represent them iu
the arbitration proceedings. Several
names were proposed, bnt the contractors would not accept them uud the situation remains unchanged.
Some misunderstanding seems to
have been caused as to what should
qualify a man to net as au arbitrator.
Mr. Geo. Gnlt was nominated by the
contractors us their representative, and
accepted by the carpenters. The Bricklayers' union held a full meeting last
night r.t 10 o'clock, when the following
resolution was unanimously passed:
"Until the two arbitrators are appointed to i ome to au arrangement iu tbe
carpenters' strike, tbe carpenters, bricklayers, stone cutters, and masons refuse
to continue work, and u full meetiug
will be held at I). Ill) o'clock Thursday
to further consider the whole question."
A deadlock was caused in the carpenters' strike situation this morning by
the refusal of the contractors to accept
the member of the arbitration board,
ncmiruted by the strike committee.
The strikers hare up to date nominated
Messrs. J. Appleton, of tho Franklin
Press, and Gee. Saults, of the Free
Press job department, both of whom
wero rejected by the contractors on tbe
ground that they were not business
men. The strikers this morning nominated Mr. William Scott, manager of
the H. A. Lister Creamery company,
and submitted his name to a joint
meeting of the contractors and strikers
beld this morning in the rooms over the
Criterion. The contractors reserved
their decision nntil evening at tl
o'clock. Both sides are determined to
proceed with the arbitration and a settlement may be looked for in the near
Winnipeg, May SO.���The two committees which are handling tbo strike
arbitration for the carpenters and contractors decided on a man to represent

that work will bo resumed today.        ,

hotel iu Wiuripeg bare beeu started
and periodically rerired, only to bo
dieptored by tbe non-niaterialiratiou of
the alleged project. These rumors were
usually inveuted by people whose
wisnes were father to the thought.
Now, howerer, tbey are to have their
wishes realized, for the company have
at last taken np the question, and have
decided to erect a fine hotel here.
Mauager Whyte announced this fuct
yesterday. He stated to a press repre-
sentatire that the hotel will bo a modern one in erery particular, and of an
nrchitectual design tliat will be an ornament to the city. As to the size of
the building, Mr. Whyte wonld uot
giro detuils, but said it wonld be in
keeping with requirements, leaving the
inference that it will be a very large
one. Regarding the site, Mr. Whyte
was nou-comn-uuicutive, as it has uot
yet been finally decided upon. It is
likely that the foundation will be put
in this year, and the building completed in 1900.

Trick Jewelry.
All sorts of trick jewelry is to be
fonnd both for men and women. A
sporting man has a representation of "n
favorite racer in a pin, and by pressing
a tiny bntton it is set in motion and
gallops along as natural as life. A humorous lawyer has a watch with a concealed reservoir of perfumery which can
be sprayed into the face of a friend
when it is being wonnd, if the owner so
desires, and a woman with a heavy
bracelet can give too inquisitive friends
an electric shock. The up to date bracelet is quite heavy enough to allow the
insertion of a battery.
But all these things are as nothing to
tbe "Klondike tooth." It is a gold shell
lo fit on over a tooth, and the great delight of it is, as the vendor says, that

Built Like n Sliurfc.
A ship repairer who has a shop front
ing the river and near the Lake Street
bridge has conceived something new in
his methods for propelling boats. In his
shop he hus a beat nearly completed
whicli resembles a man eating shark.
It is 18 feet in length, as narrow as a
racing boat and designed to hold one
person. The tail and fins, which are
elastic plates, act precisely like those of
a fish and are manipulated by internal
The principal advantage claimed for
the boat is the small amount of force
required to propel it, for when the
plates are moved and bend tbe action
of the water on tbe convex part will
produce a push forward, when they
springbuck by virtue of their elasticity.
and another push will result, thus to it
large extent utilizing the movement of
tbe waves. If this invention proves
successful, next summer will probably
see tbe park lakes dotted with vessels
looking more like marine creatures than
pleasure craft

Some Tennessee Riflemen.
A yum is told iu Manila, and it concerns tbe prison and two Tennessee volunteers. A Filipino convict had climbed
the prison wall and was running for
dear life through the open. Two long
legged Tennesseeans were on guard
duty.   They knelt to fire.
"I don't gness it's more than 300
yards," said one qnietly.
"I reckon it's most 500," said the
other, as if he were discussing the
The prisoner was running like a deer
and rapidly approaching the undergrowth around innumerable little huts,
where he would be Bate.
"Call it 400," suggested the first
Tennesseean in a conciliatory tone.
They adjusted their sights, aimed
nnd fired. The escaping convict fell,
and the, two Tennesseeans went ont til
bring in what was left of htm.
"If he's hit in the head, it's my
shot," said one.
"I aimed low, acco'din to a'my regn
lations," drawled the other.
The convict wns found with one bnllet

Drunkards, and especially peopl. suffering from delirium tremens, "see snakes'
(says an eminent oculist) because of the
presence In certain veins of the eye of
dark, pulsating blood, as a result of alcoholism, which produces snakes In appearance and motion. Hitherto lt has
been supposed that the "snakes" which
men reported having seut in their alcoholic
delirium were simply creatures ot th.
imagination. Now we are told that then
hallucinations have an actual basis. Statistics on this subject collected by tbe oculist show that 95 per cent of the visual
hallucinations experienced In delirium

A Pushing; Young Woman.
In a number of local business houses
the novel plan of a yonng woman who
has started out to earn her own living
is being much discussed. With a satchel
hung over her shoulder the new toiler
enters a store or office und announces
that she hns patent leather shoe blacking for sale and proceeds to dilate on
its virtues.
Finally she insists upon trying the
polish on the shoes of one of the men
present, and, dropping to her knees,
she starts to work before the astonished
victim has had time to summon up
courage to say "Nol" After putting a
high polish on one of the shoes the
young woman stops to extol again the
good qualities of that which she has to
sell, and then she urges the man to bny
a bottle.
The price being rather high, the business man generally declines to purchase
at first, but after the woman has risen
antl he realizes that he is to be left with
one shoe brightly shined nnd the other
untouched he consents to make the purchase. The woman then polishes the
other shoe, hands over a bottle of the
fluid, receives her money, smiles and

But the Lawyer Lost HI. client In
the Hove.
A good story Is told of a Kansas City
lawyer. He Is more of a corporation lawyer than anything else, but once in awhile
he has been called upon to show his knowledge of criminal law. It was not so very
long ago that he was In Oklahoma, and he
undortook the defense of a nogro who had
killed a white man. Tho feeling against
the negro was Intense, nnd it had been
only through the most strenuous efforts of
the officers that he had been permitted to
live for his trial. It was very evident that
an unprejudiced jury could not bo obtained In the little placo whore tho crime was
committed, and it was the intention of the
Kansas City man to ask for a change of
venue. After he had worked on the case
for some time he ascertained that the
judge was going to deny anything liko a
change and that his man was to be tried
and hanged as soon as possible. The lawyer thought long and hard ovor the matter
and finally hit upon a scheme which he
thought would bo successful in influencing
the court.
By the liberal use of money he succeeded in securing a dozen men who, when the
nogro was brought into the courtroom,
wero to cry: "Hang him! Hang him!"
The lawyer thought that this would bo
evidence of the prejudtco against his client
that could not bo overlooked by tbo court.
Tho day for the trial arrived, nntl the
defendant was brought into court. As
soon as ho mado his appearance a dozen
shouts went up:
"Hang Is 1 in 1 Hang lilml Hang the
black scoundrel!"
Tho cry was taken up all over tho courtroom, whilo the attorney smiled to himself
as he saw his littlo scht-iuu succeed; but.
to his horror, tho cries redoubled in force,
the crowd surged in nil irresistible wavu
toward tho prisoner, and before lt could
bo prevented tho negro was taken out
and hanged to a convenient tree.
The youug Kansas Olty attorney now
confines himself entirely to corporation
law and politics.
Cure of
Perhaps you've suffered with constipation for years, tried all the pills and purgatives you ever heard or read of, without
getting any more relief than the one dose
of the medicine afforded.
Then you were left worse than before,
bowels bound harder than ever, the constipation aggravated instead of cured.
All the miseries of constipation���Headache, Sick Stomach, Biliousness, Pimples,
Eruptions, Blood Humors, Blotches, Piles,
and a thousand and one other ills crowded
back on you again with redoubled severity.
Wouldn't you consider it a blessing to
be cured of your constipation so that it
would stay cured ? So that a repetition of
all the suffering you have endured would
never come again? Burdock Blood
Bitters can cure you���cure so that the
cure will be permanent.
That's where it differs from all other
remedies. It makes a thorough renovation of the whole intestinal tract, tones
the bowel wall, acts on the liver and
stomach, and causes all the digestive and
secretory organs to so work harmoniously
and perform their functions properly and
perfectly that constipation, with all its
attendant sickness, sufieringand ill health,
become a thing of the past.
M iss Arabella Jotie, living at 99 Carr>6re
Street, Montreal, Que., bears out all we
say in regard to the efficacy of Burdock
Blood Bitters in curing constipation permanently.   This is her statement t
" For over a year I suffered a great
deal from persistent constipation and
could only get temporary relief from the
various remedies I triettjintil I started
using Burdock Blood Bitters. I am thankful to .say that this remedy
has completely and permanently cured me and

And Catarrh of tho llowels.
From the Tribitno, Dcsoronto.
Our attention was lately directed to
the wonderful cure effected upon a resident of Deseronto, which illustrates in
a very marked way the merits of that
widely known health restorer -'Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills." We refer to
tlio cure of Mrs. Druce, wife of Sidney
[Juice, caretaker of the High School
building. Being desirous of giving
our readers the facts, a reporter of the
Tribune called at Mrs, Druce's residence
and is therefore enabled to present our
readers with tbe following facts, which
can be vouched for by many ueighbors
and friends of tbe family. Mrs. Druce
had from the early age of ten years
been a sufferer from rheumatism and
had endured an untold amount of suffering from this dire disease. She hud
tried scores of different medicines to
dispel the malady but in vain. Doctors told her it wns impossible to eradicate the discus.* from her system and
she had at last become resigned to the
belief that rheumatism was incurable.
In addition to rheumatism, about seven
years ago she began to suffer from
catarrh of the bowels with its attendant headaches and depression of spirits.
The pain of the rheumatism and constant headaches -wore her out. The
doctors described opiates which only
dulled thu pain, but did not repel the
disease. The two diseases continued
to make steady headway and at times
she felt such pain that she oould not
even allow her husband to raise or
move her. The neighbors thought
she would never get up again. All
kinds of remedies were suggested
aud many of them tried, but all in
vain. Providentially, as Mrs. Druce
expressed it. the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills was mentioned. It Was
not until the end of tbe second box
that sh. realised any benefit. She then
began to realize that she wns regaining strength. Before she mentioned
thi. to others her husband also observed the change, for he remarked one
day "those pills are doing you some
good, you look livelier than you have
for some time." She continued tbe
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills until
she had taken fourteen boxes, with the
gratifying and almost remarbte results
that she was completely cured of the
rheumatism and catarrh, not a solitary
symptom of either trouble remaining.
Mr, Druce was present during the interview and confirmed all that his
wile had said and was as delighted as
she in praising the virtues of Dr.
Williams' Piuk Pills. Mrs Druce
said that out of gratitude for this wonderful restoration to health she had
told scores of other sufferers from different diseases of the virtues of tbe
medicine wbicb hnd been tbe undoubted means of prolonging her life. She
hoped thnt others would follow her
plan of giving the pills a fair and prolonged trial hs she was confident that
in the end success would surely fellow
as in her owu case.
The Protest Withdrawn.
The election protest, against the return of Mr. W. C. Wells for North
East Kootenay was set down for hearing on Wednesday last at the Supreme
Court, Victoria, but the petition was
withdrawn by tbe representatives of
the Turner party. Tbe whole thing
was a piece of bluff from the first, with
a view to inducing Mr. Wells to modify his party position. They found
however they had got hold of the
wrong man and it did not work.
At a regular meeting of the Board of Licence Commissioners for the forth East Kootenay District to be held in Government office,
Ooklen.at 4 o'clock in the afternoon of Thursday, June 16th, 1809, the following applications sliiill be considered i���
