Each successive year has produced a
more beautiful conception of art in the
various Christinas publications. In
this year's mnnv attractions none surpass and very f iv compare with the
Winnipeg Saturday Night's Christmas
Number. Three beautiful pictures
-which, to describe in detail, would
take much space���accompany the
magazine, while the reading matter
and the work of illustration are the
best that brains can produce or money
cr.n buy Another point to bu borne in
mind is that the work bus been doue
by our own people and for that reason
is entitled to more credit. Further

First   Annual   Dinner.--A    Brilliant
Success.
Tbe first annual dinner of the Golden
Gun Club wus held on Friday night,
.'iOth November, at the Columbia
House. The committee iu charge deserve credit for the painstaking way
in which every particular in connection with the dinner wus attended to.
The dining room of the Columbia
House wns appropriately decorated
wilh emblems suggestive of sport.
Tho tables also looked as if they had
been attended to by a connoisseur of
art. The dinner itself wus a very
sociable affair, everyone present having
a good time, the only thing to be regretted is that social gatherings of this
kind are so few and lar between.
jVbout BriiO the worthy president led
the way to the dining hall and took
his place at tbo bend of the table with
tbe invited guests on his right and left
blind, viz. : Mr. J. F. Armstrong, A.
P. Cummins, G.C., and Sheriff Red-
gave. Owing to bis absence in the
Oleanagnn country the Rev. Archdeacon
McKay was unavoidably absent, and
lite Rev. W. R. Ross sent a note expressing regret at being unable to be
present. After thanks had been given
to the Giver of all good things the
assembled party (about 30 in all) prepared to do justice to iho good things
set before them. While in the midst
of their dinner the door opened and

. "The Wonmn's Council or Donald."
Donald, B.C., Dec. 2, '1)4.
Editor Golden Era i
Dear Sin,���My attention has been
called tn a letter in the (loi.M'x Era
of December 1st, headed-" Tho
Women's Council of Donald." It is
up doubt meant ns a good joke, und I
hope will be taken as such ; of its utility und goorl tusto the readers of the
Eua   will   form   their  own opinion,
. "The Woman's Council " is not a joke
but a national organization instituted
. by Her Excellency tlie Countess of
Aberdeen, who is herself its president.
This fact is, I thought, well known
throughout the Dominion and especially in British Columbia wlicro two
councils (in Victoria and Vancouver)
have already been formed : I must conclude however your correspondent is
ignorant of the fact, as he surely
would not venturo to make fun of the
.representative of Her Majesty. Lest
your citisens should bo misled by bis
epistle I would be much obliged if you
will publish  this letter together with
,, tbo copy of Lntly Aberdeen's letter to
me enclosed and also, if possible, Her
Excellency's Vancouver address as a
separate sheet of your paper. It ably
... sets forth the objects and interests of
the Woman's Council and should be of
interest to your leaders, as I hope to
be in Golden next mouth as she wishes
In connection with the matter.
Yours faithfully,
E. Moi.SO.N Sl'llACKIE.
It is with pleasure we publish the
���ibovo letter of explanation iu regard
to tbe Woman's Council of Donald and
-would say that bad we known of the
Importance of the organisation ive
would not havo published " A Much
Married Mini's" letter. While unable
, to publish Her Excellency's address,
us requested, we publish a copy of her
Fetter tq.Mrs. Spragge, also the constitution of the society. The following is the letter:
Car Victoria, Nov. 17, '!)���!.
Duau XIiis. Si'iiAotiH:
I have been thinking over our con-
..vorsalioii iu reference to the ''Woman's
Council" anil I cannot help thinking
it would bo quite possible lo organize
a Local Council iu the district of Eust
Kootenay,
Could you not have a meeting of the
ladies of Donald, of Golden and of  the
- "Other centres ami ask tbem to consider
tlm matter, after you have explained it
to tliein. If it Council is formed please
be very  careful  to  have all churches
- ami sections represented on it, as ic is
tliis feature of being a power to bring
all together on a common basis that
makes tlio muyemont so valuable.
Ii I can lu of any assifan-'e in giving
further information please lot me
know.

He had no idea thut the marriage laws
of thut state were of an itp.u.i.uig nature. Hu hud si-cnred his license and
thought that was all that wus necessary.
"Have you filed your bond yet?" said
someone to him the day before the wedding.
"What?" gasped he.
"Your bond," repeated the questioner.
"You know every man who is married
in this state bus to file a bond for the
protection of the state."
The bridegroom wus rather dubious,
but was finally persuaded that this was
a fact.
"I'll see a lawyer about it in the morning, "said he. - So he went to a friend
who was a legal light and said:
"See here. They tell me I have to
give a bond to the state when I get mar-
fled."

Wo do not hold ourselves responsible for tlie
opinions expressed by our correspondents, I
The " Hobble Hums" Mining Suit.
Editur Golden Era i*
Silt,���Begging your renders'reference to my letter of last week and in
continuation thereof:
Mr. Justice Crease's judgment states
that "lie was of opinion that tho
'Robert E. Burns' had been properly
staked und recorded," and tliut "Manuel Dainard and Dnvid Dickie proved
the correct staking."
It is very curious that directly Manuel Uniiiinil luul so sworn he ruliirued
to Golden and forth with hurried up tu
the claim und staked it. afresh in his
own riiiuieas lhe ������ Vancouver." Is he
another agent or a juniper pure and
simple'' David Dickie slated in evidence that he knew of certain reports
current as to the stakes having been
tampered with, but denied any knowledge of tlie parties concerned. As a
matter of fact they were tampered
with previous to tlie trial, McCab'u's
having been made right to a certain
extent, uud mine wrong in one particular No. 2 having bsen rubbed out.
This can he verified by independent
testimony.
It is also curious to note that McCabe. who if not an agent could only
he a jumper, sold the property for g.iUO
in all, when he knew of nud took part
in a previous sale of three-fourths ol
same property for $15,000. The "consideration," apart from this $500 mentioned hy the Judge was under an
agreement made previous to the existence of the "Robert E. Burns," and
was described as for "services rendered in management and development of
the (now defunct) 'Bobbie Burns'
claim," which claim iu their defence
the defendants saw fit to abandon
altogether. If the "Robert E. Burns''
was not rostaked by nn agent, but was
a genuine purchase, why did not the
���defendants apply for a Crown Grant
for that claim instead of the forfeited
���'Bobbie Burns " unless for the purpose
of evading the S5U0 of assessment
work required by law ?
I repent that I did not get nor take
any information surreptitiously from
the records either in Donald or Golden.
As negotiator of the ." Bobbie Burns "
it was my business to soe that the
titles were in order, and having found
them in disorder I wrote the defendants
on the 22nd Aug. 1898, in these words:
"I beg to advise you that on looking
over the records connected with the
"Bobbie Burns" I have not found that
the law has been complied within
some respects other than what is already known to you. I advi. e you of
this that you may havo an opportunity
of staying, if yon think fit, your proceedings till the matter is investigated."
On the 28th August I further wrote:
"Let me assure vou that mutters ure
not in order respecting the title."
These letters were ignored, nnd it is
to lie observed that the dates arc fully
a month earlier than the date (29th
Sept.) on which I folt compelled iu self
defence to stake oil the open ground as
the "Safety." They also conclusively
shew that the term jumped, cannot
with justice be applied to me, tjie Hon.
Judge's animadversions notwithstanding.
He defines n mining agent's calling
ns"the looking out blots in mining
titles," with the object of jumping
inferred. I am sure the many mining
agents in this country will be much
obliged to the learned gentleman for
this legal definition cf their business.
I was employed by the Government
Agent, Mr. Cummins, not to copy
records, but to make abstract statements for the transfer of the entries to
the various newly-formed divisions of
East Kootenay, and to give a system
of account keeping which would do
away with the muddled condition of
the books, and of which the Govern-
mont seemed very much in need. It is
needless almost again to say that Mr.
Moody, the recorder who lost, his situation, it is assumed., through his supposed connection with this squabble
had no hand ill it, except to the extent
thai he wns consulted by McCabe and
Askwith in their dilemma as to what
they ought to do. Hud they taken his
advice the defendants would not have
been iu tlie hole tbey occupy now.
Flatly denying all. that fo.loivs:
"He who comes for equity inust. do
equity," so far as it is intended lo
apply to me.
