A Uepatatlra   t.   th.   Government
Aleut on the Matter.
On Monday a deputation consisting
of Messrs. M. Dainard, *W. McNeish.
0. B. MoDormot snd E. A. Haggen
waited on the Government Agent, Mr.
Griffith, tn ask him to represent to the
Government the necessity of a road up
the middle fork of the Spillimachene.
Mr. Dainard was spokesman and
pointed out that the road referred to
would open up an extensive mineral
country on which more money had
been expended than in any other part
of the distriot. This road would be a
trunk road, branching up tbe
north fork and to the Vermont,
Copper, Carbonate and Sprucetree
creeks and the Cariboo, Burns and
International basins. The distance he
estimated at 27 miles to the head of
the middle fork, as, while it would he
longer up the first summit to get a
good grade, a deal ot distance could he
saved by a rook cutting from (he second summit down to tbe middle fork.
In reply to Mr. Griffith, Mr. Dainard
estimated the cost at 120,000. If the
road asked for were constructed it
would enable some of theee olaima to
be operated, as at present capitalists
would not take them up owing to the
difficulty of access by tne pretest
Mr. Griffith asked whether it wonld
not to better to take the road out at
Weill' Landing, as there seemed to be
a good waggon road up the hill at
that place.
Mr. Dainard replied that while that
road might suit the steamer it was
only 400 (eet lower than the present
trail, and was about 10 miles further
south. It waa also at a point where
the river could not be forded owing to
the wide and deep sloughs, and It was
Important in a road of this kind to
have it so located that horses and
vehicles could be got across, as at the
present landing at Carbonate.
Mr. McDermot said he knew the
toad by Wells' Landing and tbe part
facing the river was the best part of
ft. The sloughs were so bad that
access oould not be got across the
river at that point.
Mr. Grifflith said thit made the
third trunk road that had been asked
for, aa roads were also wanted up the
Beaver and Bugaboo oreeke. It would
be a good thing if tbey had a miner's
association in tbe distriot who would
advise the Government at to the roost
important work to be put in hand, ae
the Govornment could not very well
do all these roads at once involving aa
they did an expenditure of 120,000
eaoh. It wat a question whether it
was not better to make one good road
in a season and ensure a shipping
mine, than to spread the expenditure
over several roads-
Mr. McNeish said it was most important to secure one good shipping
nine in thc distriot.
Mr. Griffith suggested that the matter should be considered by a public
meeting, and a statement of tbe facts
and views of the publio submitted to
him in writing.
Mr. Haggen said he wonld call a
pnblio meeting to consider that aud

W. G. Mitchell-Innes returned from
his visit to the Pretty Girl claim at
Horsethief, Thursday week. The development work done consists ot a
cut 18 leet long, four feet wide, and 15
feet deep, and the walls and floor of
which are mineralized throughout.
The company have built a substantial
aback, and bave made a new trail from
near the Delos, up to the top of the
mountain; it is well bridged and is one
ot the best trails in the district. There
was no snow at the time of the trip.
The lead, which has shown two feet
ot ore, has assumed a wedge shape,
and is widning out while the ore is
Improving as they get down on it, till
there is now an ore body seven teet
wide of practically solid oro. Mr,
Innes brought in some magnificent
samples of grey copper ore with him,
a specimen of which may be seen at
the Goliiks Eka office. Mr. Innes is
also arranging to take a quantity to
London, for which city he will leave
about the 20th. The work at the mine
was shut down this week, and Mr.
Mitchell-Innes expects to return to

In his address to the shareholders
ef the Waverly Mine Company, in
London Mr. Grant-Goven said: 'There
were nineteon of these properties, and
the Waverly was selected first for
separate management. The mine is
going to astonish Europe when it
Starts shipping. Experts had verified
these opinions and had also apoken
highly of the Tangier property, which
waa registered as a joint-stock company and tbe capital for which being
privately suscribed by the directors
and their friends and the shareholders
ot the Goldfields and Waverly companies. Mr. Pellew-Harvey, of Vancouver, the agent for Vivian A Sona,
of Swansea, has assayed aome ot the
Tangier ore, and says that the specimens were o�� ���.���excellent smelting quel
ity"���a very important poiut, because
there is no zinc in it���"and worth
��22 12s. per ton of 2000 pounds." Mr.
Grant-Govan also referred to Mr Otto
Abeling's experiments in the matter of
concentration of carbonates from the
74 foot vein of the Waverly. It is
understood that these carbonates will
concentrate seven into one; and at Mr.
Grant-Goven in hia letter aaid: "If
thit thould prove to be ao, then tbe
value of the Waverly miue ie almost
beyond computation, as the company
has such an abundance of carbonates
now in sight." Mr. Abeling's report
will, of course, be checked by other
experts. The company is now
anxiously awaiting further tidings,
which will decide whether the ore is
self smelting or concentrating. It ia
hoped that at leaat 1000 tone ot this
Waverly oro will be ahipped and consigned io Messrs. Vivian A Sons, of
Swansea, thia winter, and the company has the decided assurance of the
engineer that "the value of the consignment will not be less than ��20,
000 sterling." The directors of the
Waverly are already hoping that they
will be In a position to pay a substantial cash dividend to their shareholders in the coming spring.
In conclusion, Mr. Grant-Govan
said he would undertake to say tbat
the Waverly alone can ship 1000 tons
per week for the next few years that
will net the company ��10 per ton profit. They had the Waverly, Tangier,
Oldham, Montague, Detroit and other
properties, and he felt justified in saying that the day waa not tar distant
whsn the Goldfields ot British Columbia would be recognised as "one ot the
moat successful and dividend paying
corporations," They might say hs
was over optimistic about mining
operations. He should rejoin that
���the Waverly tor one was not a mine
at all in the problematical sense ot the
word, but a sound and already proved
investment." At which there was
naturally mueh cheering, tor it waa a
very encouraging speech and lull ot

It appears that a number of men
were at work raising two scows onto
skids, when one of tbem, a young
Englitman named E. R. Orpwood,
about 27 years of age, had his head
crushed ao badly that he died two
hours afterwards at the Golden Hospital, to which place he had immediately been removed.
When the miahap occurred Orpwood
was engaged in working a jack under
one corner of a scow and had just
raised it high enough to place the
skids, when by some unforeseen chunco,
the jack canted to one side and allowed the scow to drop and swing with a
great force against another scow
which was laying close by. Tho unfortunate man, who was in a sitting
posture at the time, was unable to get
clear and his head was caught between the corners of the scows and

Next to the road to enable tbe
Kootonay Consolidated Company to
work their property next season, one
of the most urgent works that should
be curried out by the Government in
this district is the construction of a
wagon road into the Snillimachcne
country. As was pointed out by tho
deputation which waited on the Gov-
eriiicnt Agent, the Spillimachene country is ono of the first whose mineral
wealth attracted attention in East
Kootenuy. A great deal of development work bus beon done there and it
has been proved beyond doubt that it
will hare a large number ot shipping
mine--, as noon as the proper means of
access is nltoi'ded. The Government
must already have drawn a large
revenue from that district and it is
gross neglect on tlio part of tho authorities that mines that can tre placed on
shipping bn3is, nnd add to tho wealth
of tho country, and the emplo. ment of
labor, should hnve to lie idle for tlio
want of that access which it is the
duty of tho Government to give. Here
its a road thut gives access to the extensive nud rich mineral valleys of
three forks of n main watershed, the
north, south und middle forks of tbe
Spillimnchenc, together with their im
pcrtant tributaries of McMurdo creek,
Copper and Vermont creeks, Burns and
International basins, all of which are
proved to be rich in mineral deposits.
The Beaver and Bitgnboo roads are
also most necoasiuv works to give out
lets to properties which are ready to
become shipping mines, These roads
will havo to be made sooner or later.
Surely it is worth while on the part
of the Government to make an effort
to build these roads during the com
ing session of Parliament. If the
Government cannot meet an important
subject like this, theu their system of
finance must be altogether weak and
inefficient, and. the sooner they deviae
some effective system of local novcrii
mont, by which the piople of such a
district as Goldon can help itself, and
have tho means for constructing the
roads it wants, the better will it be
for tho mineral industry and the
Province as a whole.
We find that tliere are a number of
settlere who have merely squatted on
their land and have neither made
entry (or it nor pai I the en'ry fees,
although they have dona considerable
improvements on the holdings tbsy
have taken np. These settlers aro in
a serious position and they don't seem
to know it. Their position is such
that if anybody came along who waa
sufficiently mean spirited to do it, they
could ''jump'' these holdings and the
improvements effected ' on them by
making tbe necessary entry and pay
ing the fee. ' It may be said  there is

We congratulate Constable Cox on
the action that he has taken to stop
sly grog selling by unlicensed persons, Where a lisenoe is held it is
much easier to trace breachs of the
law and mischief resulting therefrom,
but where liquor is sold by unlicensed
persons, as it has been in Golden, then
the hotel keeper is wrongly blamed
for the mischief that results and the
real offender escapes unpunished. The
Chinaman who was brought, up on
Monday seems to have had very little
regard for the law, and came very
nearly causing serious trouble on a
recent occasion by his use of firearms.
The Chinese want to be taught that
they must obey the law, and when the
Chinaman who got the liquor treated
the court with contempt in refusing to
answer the questions put by the magistrate, the officer did thu right thing
in sending him to gaol. Wong Pon
evidently took that course to screen
Mack Joe, and the Chinese want to be
severely taught that this sort of thing
will not be tolerated. Wheu white
people interfere with Chinese they are
generally severly punished, aud when
Chinese break the law they ought to
feel its effects just as they are so ready
to avail themselves of its protection
when injury is done them.
The excellent suggestion made by
the Government Agent, Mr. Griffith,
to the deputation whioh waited on
him on Monday, should not be lost
sight of. "United we oonquor, divided we fall," applies to Golden just as
much as any other place. At the
present time there is no representative
body to take up questions affecting the
raining interests of Golden and there
is ample scope for the operation of
such a body. Trails and wagon
roads are required, a smelter is wanted, different ores are found, tbe profitable methods of treatment and shipping of which could be better ascer
tained by a miner's association than
by any other way. The ores ot this
district cannot be beaten, yet when an
exhibition is held anywhere we find
other distriots represented and Oolden
not, for the simple reason that there
is no representative body to take up a
matter of the kind, and individuals
cannnt be expected to give time and
attention, and pay expenses out ot
pocket for the public good, without
some aid and backing by their fellow
townsmen. Advantage has been
taken of the suggestion made by
Mr. Griffith to call a meeting

The Hon. Mr. Sifton is to bo congratulated on the improved conditions
which he is bringing into operation
in the Tukon. He has got the right
hang of the duty of the Government
in thin .mutter and of securing the
wealth of these great goldfields for
Canada. He has decided nn un improved mail service and the establish'
ment of a bank to issue currency,
purchase the gold from the miners,
and undertake the safe transportation
of gold where required. The regula<
tions reserving alternate claim's will
be abrogated, but the policy ot the
Government will be to collect a royalty
on the output.
A good deal of discussion has been
aroused in financial and other journals by the repeated appearance of the
name of Premier Turner and other
British Columbia ministers on the
directorate of mining concerns. One
Klondike company, especially, has been
criticised because tt is claimed that
Mr Turner's directorship gives the
company early access ot information.

Nervous Prostration, Dullness anil

Pink Pills cwnie to her Rescue after
Hospital Treatment Failed.
From the Fort William Journal.
In the town of Fort William lives a
brave woman, who for years has by
dint ot constant labor kept the Wolf
from the door and her little family
together. From morning till night
she tolled to provide contorts for ber
loved ones until nature at last protested against such a constant drain
on her strength and so she began to
lose health. Soon the slender frame
became unable to bear its dally load of
toil, and tho poor mother was at last
forced to give up the unequal contest,
and become a burden where she had
once been the chief support, Nervous
prostration, heart disease, constlpa
tion, and other names were given to
her malady by local physicians, bnt
months passod during which* she
suffered untold agony, without finding any relief from her sufferings.
Palpitation ot the heart, dins-mess,
extreme pain in the cheat, loss of appetite and nervousness were some of
symptoms of the disease, gatherings
that caused excruciating pain formed
at the kuee joints and other parts of
the body, and at last she became perfectly helplesss and unable to walk or
even sit up. At this stage she was
advised to enter the hospital, that she
might have tho benefit ot skilled
nurses as well as the best medical
treatment; but after spending some
time there without obtaining any relief the uoor woman gave up all hope
of recovery and asked to be taken
home. So enunciated and weak Had
she become that her frienda were
shocked at her' appearance, and was
so utterly hopeless her condition that
it was like mockery to speak hopefully
of her ultimate recovery. What then
was the astonishment of all who had
known her dreadful condition to hear
that she had at last found a remedy
whose magic at once demonstrated
the fact that where there is life theie
is hope. The name of this remedy
that worked such a wonderful change
in audi a short time waa Dr. Williams' Pink Pill., and after taking
five boxes she wns able to walk about
and visit her friends. Her strength
gradually but surely returned and in s
few months from the time she began
nslng the medicine she was able to
resume her work. The subject of
this article, Mrs Jane Marceille, is
well known, and her youthful and
healthy appearance today oansos peo*

She attributes her restoration to her
family, solely to tho virtues to be
found in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
her experience she hopes, may put

Disease germs propagate with lightning-like rapidity. Once in the blood,

kill them. This is whar. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is for. It
parities the blood. That meana that it
kills the germs, but that is only part
of what It does, tt assists digestion
by stimulating the secretion ot digestive fluids, so promoting assimilation and nutrition; purities and enriches the blood and so supplies the
tissues with the blood they need. It
builds up strong, healthy flesh and
puts the whole body into a disease-resisting state.
