Scheme   Proposed  by W.

Tel-graphic Addi-su:  "ASSAY," Vancouver,it. C.
IsSte
The most important feature of the
political campaign so far is the proposal put forward by Mr. W. C. Wells
for deirelopiiiR the resources pf the District. There is no use blinking at tha
fact that this North-East Kootenay is
in a very backward condition. This
is due to ths want ef a comprehensive
scheme for opening ir. up. North-East
Kootenay haa just as good resources
aa West Kootenay and men who are
now thronging iu from there are agreed
that Rossland cannot hold a candle to
this District for the richness and extent or its mineral wealth. Why,
then, ia the District so backward?
Tho difference between the state of the
two districts lias, we believe, mainly
in this. Special attention has been
given to the Opening up of West Kootenay, and the lands in this District
have even been taken to subsidise railways in West Kootenay to the detriment ot this District. Much ha. been
said about tho District having been
represented by a Cabinet Minister.
Wall, what has he done for his constituency i1 He has booinsd his Cranl.rook
tawnaite; he has secured to himself a
nest-egg out of tha millions of acres of
land granted for the construction of
tha B. C. Southern railway; he has
secured lor himself and a few friends
some 800.000 acres of the Crow's Nest
coal lands, the finest in the world, and
estimated by an engineer to be worth
at least IIiiO,000,000. That is what
ha has done for himself in return for
i ha confluence and trust which the
elajotorsof this District have reposed in
him. But wa oannot find iu th. history
Of .1.0 District a statesmanlike act that
be haa dona for lha benefit of hia con*
A  MEOLMTBD  district
atituauts. While Parliament aad the
Government have done certain things
to promote tha interests and develop
ment of other parts of the Province,
tha bast interests of East Kootenay
have bean neglected, with tha result
that ws see today a rich District lying
in a comparatively undeveloped state,
neglected anil uncared for, its interests
sacrificed to private greed. If ever
there was a time when the constituency
required a live man to look after its interests that time is now. Under these
circumstances, the sound business-like
policy put forward by Mr. Wells in
the different addresses delivered by
him last week in the Columbia Valley
comes home to us as just the thing
that is wanted by this constituency at
the present time. Of (1)10,000 paid by
way of revenue last year by the
County of Kootenay only 189,000
was returned to the County in the way
of publio expenditure, The system
proposed by Mr. Wells will effectually
correct such an abuse, His proposal
1 .a just this: that a system of municipal government, suitable to the District, should be devised, hy which all
local revenues and expenditures will be
managed by a body of men elected ny
the people of the District say every
three years, and forming an administration similar in a measure to the
county council in the eastern provinces
of the Dominion and in England. Mr.
Wells suggests tha- this body should
have sole control of roads ami trails,
and lieing in direct touch with the
people would be likely to look after the
roads and trails ill a muoh more satisfactory manner than can be dont by a
cabinet ministry sitting in Victoria
and rarelv leaving that city. This
body should be entitled to the whole
of the mining revenue, in the same
way as the County Councils of the
mining districts of the Australian Colonies. From these rovenuos it would
lie the duty of the Council to provide
the funds for repair and maintenance
of roads and to decide upon the roud
works necessary from time to time for
opening up the raining and airricultur*
al resources of the District. The Council would submit to the Government
the estimates of works which it should
so propose to curry out, with a statement of the sources from which revenue would be provided to mnei the interest and sinking fund on loans to
provide the funds necessary for the
several works. The District would he
thus self- upporting and self administrative and It would then become the
duty of the Government to provide the
loans. . Tbe loan moneys would be
treated as a trust fund for the respective works for which they were authorised, and as the revenues came in,
whioh had been set aside to provide the
Interest and sinking funds to liquidate
over a long period of years the vsrious
loan items, these revenues would be
paid over to the sinking fund trustees
nnd by thein invested for the specific
purposes of liquidating tho lean. With
A GRAND ROADINQ POLICY
such a policy we should have within
three months a dozen shipping mines
in this District which is now kept be-
hind for want of access to the mines.
On the Bennison group for instance
the District ha* this seison lost tho
expenditure of $100,000 and the employment of hundreds ifmen in building.
tSreeting machinery, development work
and the shipment of ore, simply he
cause the owners of that mine are unable to get a means of access to it by a
wagon road of which they wero prepared to pay a fair portion of the cost.
Under such a system as that ptoposed
by Mr. Wells the necessary roa I work
would have been carried out, and the
mine would have been a shipper within
tbe next three months. The revenue
from the ore and the taxes contributed
by theowners would have been sufficient to provide ihe interest and sink-
inn' fund on the loan, while the road
would have opened up other properties
that would also soon have been on the
shipping list, not only providing ample
revenue for the loan charges, but a
surplus as well, which would help in
forming an insurance fund r.o make up
tbidetioiency which might temporarily
arise frem any other work such as the
Columbia Valley fload.    This policy
IT WILL DEVELOP  THE COUNTRY
enunciated by Mr. Wells would also
make this valley the key to the Peace
River district, snd instead of Donald
fearing extinction at the hands ef the
C. P. R. that town would come to a
position am^ng ths foremost towusites
in British Columbia, ss it would be
the most important outlet for the inland districts of the Province. Similarly we should have the McMurdo district opened by first class wsgon roads,
and it is well-known that there are
mines in that locality which would
rival the best mines of West Kootenay
as sh ippers of ore, once a proper mean*
of access could he provided to them.
The Bald Mountain Prairie Mountain,
Bugaboo. Horsethief, and No. 2 Creeks,
Jubilee and Spillimaohene mountains,
Toby, Dutch, and Findlay Creeks
would all be placed in the same position where the circumstances warranted the expenditure. As a check
against any uuremunerative works,
Mr. Wells makes the excellent suggea
tion that the Government Mining Expert should be available to examine
and report on the ore-bodies proposed
to bo worked before a dollar wus spent
on works to give access to thein, and
so ensure that the prospects should be
such as to warrant tho expenditure
and to provide the ret rn�� sufficient
for the interest and sinking fund required to extinguish the loan. In this
way public works would be limited to
legitimate enterprises and there would
bo no waste of public money, Mr.
Wells has thus, it appears io us.   put
IMPORTANT    CONSIDERATION
before tho people of this constituency
a proposal which is probably the most
states;!.anlike, and certainly the most
busiiiess-liko ever put before the
country. It means a now period of
prosperity to this Distriot. It means
tho proper development of our mines.
It means the piecing of the District in
n foremost placo hs nn exporter of
ores It mean* ample work at good
wages available io the laborer, Ii
means to the rancher a market at his
door for his stock and produce, with
assistance to the struggling settler
from road works and freighting from
tbe mines such as will provide biin
with a comfortable income till he can
get his farm into remunerative condition. This ia a policy thatevery Weil-
wisher of the District will support.
Mr. Wells has offered the people of
this constituency his service*. He has
told them in plain unmistakable language what his policy will be. He has
the highest reputation as a business
man and a man of integrity,     It now
TUB HAN AND HIS  POLICY
rests with the voters to say whether
they will choose the man and his
policy. For our own part wo believe
the people fully realise the disidvan-
tsges under which the District has
labored in the past, and that they
will ai this election go to  tbe  ballot
box with one determination, and that
is to have a change from the scandalous state of things that has been prevailing in the past, and to endeavor to
take advantage of the policy put forward by Mr. Wells to ensure the sound
and legitimate development of the District in the future. Mr. Wells has
been successful in his own business ss
the result of his assiduous attention
to it. Ho uffers if elected as the. rep-
lesentutive nf tbe District, to give the
same attention to the public business
that he has hitherto devoted to his
own, and we have every reason to believe that the results will he eminently
satisfactory to ths District and to
those who may show their confidence
In Mr. Wells by voting for him at the
polls on the 9th of July.
Mr. Wells at Columbia Valley.
On Tuesday week Mr. Wells addressed another Meeting at Columbia
Valley when nearly uli the electors in
the district were present. M. Dainard
was voted to tin chair, Mr. Well*
concluded nn interesting address amid
applause. In reply to Mr. Mitchell
Mr. WbIIh went fully into his proposed
plan of loc.-l government for the more
efficient management of the affairs of
the District. He condemned the centralisation of matters affecting the
public reads and mining development
nt Victoria, nud contended that what
was wanted was a system of County
Government, such ns they had in the
east and in tho Australian colonies, by
which the people of the Distriot would
he directly brought iu touch with their
own affairs. Por instance it was absurd that the main road passing by
their doors should be administrated
from Victoria, when it could be hand*
led to so much better advautago by
themselves.
In reply to Mr. Watkins Mr. Wells
suggested that instead of the present
system,   the  maintenance  of
fill the trust which the public hsd reposed in him he would return to the
Provinrc the valuable eoal lands out
of which he had beaten the people,
(cheers).
Mr. Conkrite asked if Mr. Wells waa
mixed up with tho combination owning tbe Beaver and Golden lumber
mills.
Mr. Wells replied that he was not
connected with it in any way.
An elector asked Mr. Wells's opinion
about the employment of cheap Asiatic
labor in the mines.
Mr. Wells said he was opposed to It.
In reply to a question from W.
Smith, Mr. Wells said that the to fee
imposed on men working iu mines
ought to be abolished, but that the fee
for a miner's license issued to prospectors should not be increased unless the
miners themsolves wished it.
In reply to another question Mr.
Wells stated that if elected he would
make such arrangements as would enable him to give his time to the interests of his constituent*. He considered he was entitled to some consideration at their hands for the scandalous
manner in which Mr. Neilson had treated him (cheers). As to the statements
that Im had underpaid his men he repeated the challenge he mads at Wind*
artnere and Columbia Valley and appealed to an eleotor in the audience
who had worked for him to confirm
the position he had maintained, that
he had treated and boarded his men
well, to which the eleotor replied "That
is right,"
An address was also given by Mr.
Haggen.   This concluded the meeting.

tiers living on them, thus helping out
the ranchers and ensuring the road being kopt in good repair when a mishap
occurred, instead of the delay and loss
of time now occasioned by having lo

Mr. Watkins :   That is right.
Mr. Mitchell endorsed Mr. Wells
view, and gave instances of the hardships to which the ranchers were sometimes put under the present absurd arrange ment:, fr.  ...
Mr. Atcheson complained that if a
rancher now wanted a job on
the roads be was told thst* were plenty
of men about Oolden.
E. A. Haggen also addressed the
the meeting, which was a very cnthus

they wanted $i)5 an acre for it, though
they hnd not paid the Crown a dollar.
J. Conkrite remarked tliat these land
grants had effectually shut out settlers
from getting laud in the valley.
Mr. Wells t: en referred to thelieavy
cost to which applicants for water

returned ho would do his utmost to
have the grievntico remedied.
Mr. Conkrite said Mr. Wells was
right about thai and he himself had

THE GOVERNMENTROADPOLKY
A trip over the Golden Fori Steele
road is apt to open the eyes of the
traveller to tho fact that the present
method of maintenance pursued in tbe
District is utter folly, extravagant in
cost and bad in results. The road has
for some time been in a disgraceful
state, particularly at' aSpilllinaohene,
Galena, and Columbia Valley No oue
along the road has hnd any authority
to put it in repair, and this state of
things has had to continue till the
Government team could go out from
Golden. This is an absurd and costly
system and ought io be stopped at
once. The proper 'way to maintain
tho road is to let it iu five or ten mile
lengths to the settlers along the roud,
under a proper contract, binding each
contractor to ke..p hi< section in an
efficient state of repair. Public tenders
should be called for tho different sections, nnd the work should be let to
the lowest bidders. This would also
help out tho ranchors till they get their
farms into a proper state Of cultivation.
Hitherto these public works have been
reserved for certain f-vorites.generally
the friends of government officers, or
toadies to the corrnption of the Turner-Pooley ring. Let there be an end of
this tomfoolery and let the public in
terests be attended to in a proper manner. We should have taken up this
matter before,both in the public interoit
and tliat of settlers along the road,
but the first time that we heard the
matter fully discussed and attention
drawn to the iniquity of thn present
system was on the way between Fairmont and Canal Flat, and at Mr.
WellB's meetings st Columbia Valley
and Carbonate. Mr. Wells has pledged himself, if returned, to a reform of
the existing state ol things.
by everybody whom we have seen frem
that end of the District. The people
there now recognize the extent to
which the Colonel has used them as a
catspaw, and they know that to return
him would be to placo him in a posi
tion to ruin them and their District in
order that he might boom his pet
townsite at their expense.
LAND SHARKING.
On s tour through tho valley last
week a settler who knows well the
history of the District pointed out to
us how .lii.OOO acres of the public lands
hud been given to tho Kootonay Valley
Lund Company for the ditch at Canal
Flat called a canal, which did so much
harm that it nearly drowned out several of tbe settlers, and had to lie filled
up at a cost of $2,0CO to $.1,000. Then
he complained of the grant of some
1G.000 acres of laud to t;ie Upper Columbia Navigation Company for the
building of a tramway which was now
uuused and useless. But the cap was
put on all, when he pointed out to us
the huge blocki of laud which the C
P. R. hud received in the Columbia
Valley for building a roud in Wesi
Kootenay, and which was not of the
slightest interest or benefit to tho Dis
trict. "Is it any wonder," said he,
" that this valley will give a block
vote for the Opposition candidate who
pledges himself to hurl from place and
power the Turner-Pooley-Baker Combination who have so notoriously
abused the trust reposed in them?"
Such a question could only, receive oue
answer and that answer means the
death-knell ofthe present government,
whose actions have closed the Columbia Valley against settlement and de.
prived the District of the position
which it should have occupied,
We think that all who read in onr
last issue the report of the address by
Mr. W. C. Wells, at Windermere, will
have been impressed with its straight-
out, practical character. There was a
ring about it that showed Mr. Wells
meant business, and that lie had a
thorough grasp of the politicsl situation, as well as of the necessities of
the District to accomplish the development of our mineral and agricultural resources.

should like to know how much independence there is likely to be about
him in this campaign?

Under the laud laws of the Province
a saltier ought to lie able to take up
iho host agricultural land at SI per
acre. By their special legislation in
favor of charterinoniror*, this vnlley
has been absolutely closed against settlers, who would otherwise havo been
glad to have taken up laud hero. The
intentling-settler has instead been
placed at the mercy of the land sharks,
who, having been wrongfully granted
a monopoly of these lands, now put
from So to $10 and upwards per acre
upon thein. People who wish to settle
on the lands of the valley have thus
cither to pay the land sharks the extortionate rates they demand, or go
without land. Col. Baker and his
supporters ought to be ashamed, now
and forever after, to raise their heads
before their fellow citizens whom they
so cruelly wronged.

There are d.ves ��� the chemically pure
and scientifically prepared Diamond
Dees-that have brought blessings to
millions of homes for long years, and
there aie the vile preparations and
mixtures of imitators who, as fur as
*.ryle of package is concerned, get as
near the ''Diamond" as thoy dare go.
But vv ha' shall be said of the contents
the ingredients-that the women of Canada are asked to dye with? Little more
can he added to what has so often appeared in the press of the country.
Thefi imitation dyes are simply deceptions; they are ad .Iterated aud dangerous preparations, hurtful to the hands
of the user, and destroyers of valuable
garments and materials.
The manufacture of Diamond Dyes
is reduced to a science, and today they
are the only dyes that dare guarantee
their work ��� that dareproclailncertain
yic'o'ry For every user who will follow
t be plain directions.Diamond Dyes have
a wide-spread popularity; other brands
of dyes are hardly known outside of
iho greedy, long-profit dealers who sell
i hem to theuiisuspecting public. Avoid
all-imitation package dyoa aoyou
would avoid spurious coins.

COL. BAKER AT FORT STEELE.
We have it on (tood authority that
one of the features of the arraHKement
between Col. Raker and the C.P.R.
was that the Provincial Government
should assist the booming of the Cran-
brook townsite by the removal of the
Government officers from Fort Steelo
to that point. The gallant Colonel
himself confirmed this assertion in a
recent conversation with a friend. The
statement has been sworn to in tho
form of an affidavit and oan be produced should the Colonel deny it. Is it
sny wonder that Fort Steele should
gi7e a block vote against the man who,
while the representative of the District,
hns endeavored to damage I he townsite
of Fort Steele, and who, if returned,
would be in aposltion to reward his
faithful followers ot Fort Steele by using his position and influence to build
up Cranbrook at the expense of the
original townsite. The defoat of Col.
Baker for tho Sou'h Riding of East
Kootenay is regarded as a cer'.nin.y
It is undoubtedly a fact that our
grand-
. mothers;
the pioneer women of
the coun*
try, led
more laborious
lives
than the
housewives of
to-day.
In   spite
of  this
fact, they
bore
their husbands
.*- -*---*--* ���- ��� healthy,
robust sons and dauKhtera, and did not
become weak, complaining invalids as a
consequence.
There are probably several reasons for
this. One in, that they lived more In the
open air, and another, and probably the
most Influential of all, ia that they were
Icsh prudish thou the women of to-day.
They were not n-hamed to know something
of their own physical ntnkcup. They were
not too nice lo take euro of their health in
a womanly way. Women now-a-daya suffer untold tortures in silence, because of
weakness and disease of the distinctly
feminine on-anisnr, rather than consult a
physicist-, or even talk upon the subject to
their own husbands. They imagine 'that
troubles of this description can only be
cured by imdetgoing the disgusting examinations and local treatment insisted upon
bv the average modern physician. Doctor
Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures all diseases peculiar to women iu the privacy of
their own homes. It does away with the
necessity for examinations and local treatment. It acts directly on the important
orsraas -concerned, making them strong,
healthy and vigorous. It (its for wifehood
. and the burdens of household duties. It
allavs inflammation, heals ulceration and
soothes pain. Tt tones and builds up the
nerves. It banishes the discomforts of the
time of expectancy and makes baby's advent easy and almoitt painless. Thousands
have testified to its merits.

Is true nevertheless,
that a large percentage of the wo*

Wells k Richardson Co.,
Gentlemen: For more than twelve
years I was afflicted with kidney, female and stomach troubles, and had
been attended by five doctors, and tried
jtudicine after medicine, without any
good results. My sufferings a year
ago from the kidneys and stomach
were dreadful. I was in such a state
thst I could not live, and conduced
there was no use trying other medicines.
However, I was advised to try Paine's
Celery Compound Before I had finished the first bottle I had improved very
much, and after the use of a few more
bottles I had not been so well for ninny
years, and am now altogether a different person, The use of Paine's Celery
Compound also banished my nervousness. J can therefore recommend
Paine's Celery Compound to any one
Buffering from kidney, female and
utomach troubles,

My nomination as an Opposition Candidate in the approaching General Election for our Legislature, culls ou me to state to
you briefly, the course, which in my opinion, I should take if
elected no vour Representative.
So far as I have been abln to measure the feeling of this
Constituency, it is one of disappointment in the administration
of our Provincial affairs. Iu the present contest lam glad to any,
we aro not so divided on party lines, as to debar us from taking
our choice of men throughout the Province for the ensuing Parliamentary term, nnd it is to be hoped that an independent effort
will be made in this direction. Holding the opinion, as I do, that
the record of the present Government, in the disposal of Public
Lands, nnd their administration of the Provincial finances, not
having been such as to command my support, it is tny plain duty
for the* present, te claim vour suffrages as an Oppcsition Candidate. This does not necessarily mean that I must place myself
in such antagonism to any administration, as to defeat what
should he my primary object as a Representative, namely, the interests of my own Constituency.
Nor does it mean that I am in full alliance with the Opposition party as it has stood before the Legislature during the past
four years. For this reason, if no other, I would ask at the
bands of ray Constituents, if elected, a free indulgence of my own
judgment as to the course I should adopt in this particular respect,
I look for at least a reconstruction aa the result of the General
Election, and that we may have an Administration fully meeting
the demands of our rising Province.
The large appropriation of $5,000,000 under the recent Publio
Works Loan Amendment Act, while indicating a generous tendency in the disposal of public funds, cannot meet the approval of
interior Cons Ituoncies. We are interested in something raoro
than building up our terminal cities, and the exclusive welfare of
districts immediately tributary to tbem. It will therefore, be my
first contention thar, substantial justice should be given to the
Eastern portion of this Province, as compensation for the enormous appropriation made directly, I consider, in the interest of
Coast Constituencies, for which we too have to bear our sbaro of
tho burthen. Iu this connection, 1 may say tbat the terms subsidizing the Teslin Lake Railway have my approval as a legitimate business transaction, apart from other considerations, and
which aro, first; whether there Is an urgent necessity to build, at
present, the southern portion of this line, ami secondly, whether
we have not been too precipitate in snatching from the Dominion
Government, �� responsibility which rightly belongs to it, in the
Interest of'Ei<slerft Provinces, morn than to British Columbia.
We have, within ourselves, sufficiently attractive features in our
vast mineral resources, to (ullv warrant I lie investment ol capital
aud influx of population, or in oilier words, we have our own
affairs, to which it miulit he btttet, oi present, that wo givo our
undivided consideration. I menu by this that, being so wholly
dependent, as we are upon tho opening up and en rgotic development of onr mines, the further construction of rouds, and increased facilities of interior transportation, becomes an imperative
necessity. To this I will urj-o ihe oonelnei'ation of tbe Government, nnd trust that in justice to iliis, the Extreme Eastern Cori'
stituency of tho Province, further appropriation will be now made,
and that we may have, at least, what f.airly hflongs to us.
My election at your hands, I would accept ns n mark of confidence and trust, sufficient to determine me In guarding faithfully
the position in which you shall have placed ine as your Representative. In my appreciation of this trust, and an earnest
endeavour to serve your interests, I sincerely hope tliat it will not
be expected that I aro to defeat, or rlak the opportunity given me,
by such a thankless allegiance to party measures as might thwart
what I consider my imperative duty towards developing the
material resources of the North Riding of Esst Kootenay,
Anticipating and thanking you fot your support,
I am at your service,
W C. WELLS.

Since taking charge of the Windermere school, Miss Gibbons has given
the utmost satislaotion as teacher, The
attendance has steadily grown to an
average of 16, while there are 18 on
the roll. Miss Reld, formerly governess at Bighouse, took a great interest
in the school whilo resident at Windermere, and presented each of the pupils with a pretty gift-book at  Easter
Our Windermere correspondent
writes:���Word reached here this morning that part of the Dutch Creek

WILDER AND STRENGTHENS:!.
That ta the Term nn Ottawa Lady Ap.
plica to Or. Williams'Pink IMUa
Among many in Ottawa and tb*
vicinity who have been benefitted one
way or another by tbe use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, the
Journal has learned of the case of Mrs.
Gilchrist, wife ol Mr. T, V, Gilohrist,
a grocery at the corner of Fourth Ave.
and Cedar street, and is well known to
a great many people in Ottawa as well
as to the villagers of this suburb of
the Capital. Mrs. Gilohrist states that
while in a "run down" condition during the spring of 1897, she was greatly,
strengthened and built up by the uso
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Speaking
of the matter to a Journal reporter,
sho stated that while able to go about
nt the time sho was fur from well;
her blood was poor, she was subject
to headaches, and felt tired after the
slighest exertion. She had read at
different times of cures effected by the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
deoided to try them. She was benefitted by the first box and oontinnod their
use until she had taken five boxes,
when she considered herself quite recovered. Mrs. Gilchirt says that she
always strongly recommends Dr, Wil
Hams' Pink Pills as a builder and
strengthened when any of her friends
are weak or ailing. 442
