Opinion of Mr. Martin, M.P.P.
In an interview with the Rossland
Miner Mr. J. Martin, M.P.P., for
Rossland, said: "The government had been agiesslve, and had done
all in its power to correct the mistakes
that had been made by its predecessors
When the matter of forbidding the
employment of Chiuese and Japanese
underground. The opposition hat1
claimed that the act forbiddin-t the em
ployraent of Chinese underground
had been passed by the late govern
ment, and that the present government bad simply stolon their thunder.
The attorney-general had replied a
once that while that waa true it hud
never enforced tbe act, Occasionally
thoie had been a foreman arrested. b<a
he had invariably given bail, appealed
the case and then gone on employing
Chinese just the same. But within
two weeks after the present government came into power all the Chinese
were discharged from the Dnnsmuit
mines and their places bud been tike:.
by white men, and white men were
there yet. The simple fact was
that tho Dunsmuirs knew that the
present government would enforce tha
law, while they were equally sure that
the late government would not.
" Mr. Martin was strongly of the
opinion that the legislation passed was
all good, but was especially proud of
the act repealing all lafid grants to
railways that hud either ma- been constructed or were not boiirt- genuinely
under construction. There was an
excellent clause in the charters granted
which compelled those to whom these
charters were granted lo deposit 95.000
whicu was to be forfeited in caso $10,-
000 worth of work was not done during tho year immediately offer the
granting of lhe churter, and the charter was to be forfeited as well.

This remedy is intended especially
for coughs, colds; croup, whooping
cough and influenza. It Ins become
famous for its cures of theso diseases,
over a large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering lestiniouuls have
been received, giving accounts of its
good works; of the aggravating und
persistent coughs it haa cured'; of severe colds that have yielded promptly to
its soothing effects, and of the dangerous attacks af croup it has cured, often
saving the life of the child. The extensive use of it for whooping cough
has shown that it robs that disease of
all dangerous cdnsi-qiieiices. For sale

The following is thesubstane.e of the
Jackson letter referred to in our last
issue as having been published in the
Edmonton Bulletin:
' " A few days ago Mrs. F. A. Jackson, of I-Mmoaton, received a letter
from her husband dated February (itb
at Swift Current, a creek running into
the Fraser rivor near its head waters
in the Yellow Head Pass. Ue reports
a rich Hnd of plucer gold on that
stream. Mr. Jackson and two helpers
Neill and McLaughlin, left Edmonton
late laa*. full with a pack train well
provisioned, bound for the headwaters
of the Fraser. Mr. Jackson had been
in that country last, season and found
colors on tne Swift Current but had to
come out for supplies before lie was
able to develop the prospect thorougly.
Hornet other prospectors us he was
leaving and told them about the stream
he had been working on and after they
had gone they discovered that it wus
very rich. They disputed among
themselve about who should stak--
liscovery claim and could not agree.
In the meantime Mr. Ja'cksongot home
to Edmonton, replenished his stock of
tupplies and set out again for the
nouiiiiiins. On Dec. 27, after great
hardships be reached the Swift Current
ind found Ihe ininei-s still disputing
ibout discovery claim. Thay all
igrccd I hut lie. Jackson, I'ad the best
ight lo it anil forthwith anpointed a
-enorder and the claim was filed in nis
na#ine. Discovery claim iu B.C. is
lf'00 feet si|iinre whereas every other is
100 feet Square.
Mr. Jackson reported having gone
15 feet into the pay dirt without sin-iking lied rook and found it worth from
$20 to $10 per day. Mr. A. SteWart,
of South Edmonton, and Mr. A. C.
Eaton, of Edmonton, who wo under*
stand are connected with Jackson's
expedition, left on Uie Snd infer, via
Golden, B.C., to join their party."
On Monday the V'cn. Archdeacon
McKay, Me.-srs Patmore, T. Forest,
Luitnoy, of Donnld, and Martin, of Beaver, started out for tbo new gold-field.
The party left Beaver station to 'akethe

the Townsite during the month of
November 1897.
Tbe town of Golden is built on a
low gravel flat through which the
Kickinghorse flows to its junction
with the Columbia, about lij miles
below. This fiat is subject to overflow, (1) during the summer freshet,
and (2) in lhe winter, when ico dams
form in the river.

a number of properties iii the district
with a view to activedevelopmen' this

now drawn to this section of East

having been made for the development
of the Certainty greup of three claims

building a trail and developing the
trep'irty will   be  commented  just as

In Giving tho News of the Great Cures Effected by South American Nervine���It has

L, M. Holmes, of Parrshoro, N.S., was

was completely prostrated. Ho consulted
best doctors, but they faiiod to help him. A
newspaper advertisement brought South

precautions to place the basements of
buildings in the floode 1 portion above
tbe reach of danger was not observed.
The summer freshet has, to some
extent, been provided against from
time to time by cribbing and mattras*
sing built along the rivet- bank above
und below the bridge, as shown cn the
tracing enclosed, tit the joint expense
of the local and Dominion Governments
and the Canadian Pacific Railway ;
but thesp. works are not of a sufficiently continuous and homogenous character to hieet the conditions of an ice
dam such as occurred last November.
The formation of this dam has been
attributed to two different causes, viz.,
(1) to the giving way of un ice jam at
some point ia the upper reaches of the
Kickinghorse, and the ultimate packing and freezing into a soli 1 mitsa of
the iee and slush thereform, iu the
channel through the townsite, ami (2)
to the formation of anchor or frazil iee
m the bed of ihe river, which obstruct*
ed the flow past the town. It is
thought tliat tlio former may bo accepted us the most reuse liable explanation
of the cause of the trouble, as it occur-
ed too early ih the season for frasii ice
to forin.
This ico datii. wliatbver the cause
may have been, backed the water up,
which found its way apparently���-lor
the ground was covered with snow-
though the inattruss ami crib-work,
over the Townsite on the north side
and over the bank on the south side
above the bridge, where uo protection
works then existed, flooding many
cellars and preventing the use of hot-
air furnaces.
To avert the flooding an at'empt was
made, at the suggestion of the citizens,
lo open a channel by cutting through
the solid pack up to the bridge, but
without avail. The expenditure
amounted to $1074.06.
Tbe ice rose at dno time to within
nine inches of the underside of the
lower chord of the bridge, and it was
only by continual chopping away tho
ice that the bridge was placed but of
danger. The under side of the chord
of the bridge is o ily 7ft. 9ins. abov^
low water level, 2ft. 3ins, above the
top of the crib, and 7ft. 9ins. above tbe
bank of the river at the north end of
the bridge.
A committee of the Board of Trade
of Golden waited upon me and urged
the necessity of immediate steps being
taken to prevent recurrence of this
winter Hood. One of the Committee
stated that in his opinion the desired
result cciihl be aceompliahbii by expending the small sum of 5300.00 in
training the river into one channel I
regret that I find it impossible to concur in this suggestion. There is nothing to show that such an effort would
be of uuy use. It. would be merely an
experiment, and, if for nd other reason
cannot bh rei-onunendod.
It is ilnfoi tuiiute that the Board of
Trade, being fully cogiiliant of the
possibility of a repetition of the flood,
did not tube steps nt an earlier date to
bring the matter to the attention of tlle
Executive. Had they done so it would
have been possible to carry out the
following suggestion for tliu amelioration of the conditions boforo the winter sets in.
Tha works that have already boon
carried out at Golden in connection
with the prevention of flood and the
protection of the river bank partake,
and unavoidably under the circumstances, of a disconnected and varied
character. Commencing at *-B" on
the tracing, on the North bank, the
Canadian Pacific Ruilway built a
round log ciib levee 6f irregular
alignment as far dawn as the bridge,
Continuing below there is* a crib levee
faced with a brush mattrass for 190
feet, then a crib 10 feet wide of sawn
luinbor partially filled with rock for
228 feet, followed by a round long crib
for 290 feet, and ths protection concluded on this side by a crib levee protected by brush and stone to point "A"
oh tracing. Below the latter point the
b��nk is cutiiiiK a'-Vay.    Oo the   South'
bank commencing at "F" there is brush
mattrass protection for 3ti8 feet, then 4
timber crjb for 194 feet, followed ,tA
turn by a crib levee protected on the
face by the usual brush and stene to a,
square timber crib at the bridge, built
by the owner of the adjacent land,
The work from point "F" to the brida-e
is expected to arrest the washing away
of the bank and prevent the flooding of
Golden South.
There are only two ways by which
further flooding either in summer or
winter can effectually be averted, and
these are either (1) by raising the .low
ground of the townsite above flood
level or (2) bv making the dyke along
the river bank high enough to keep out
the Water at all times and hy repairing
and extending lhe work intended to
prevent cutting away of the bank. ,
The lirst. proposal appears to bt out
of the question by reason of the cost,
and the second will come within a
reasonable expenditure.
In carrying out the latter it will be
necessary (1) to thoroughly overhaul
and repair tbo existing wOrks. (2) to
extend the levee and protection works
to " E " on the north and ���' C " on the
south side, and (3) to back np the
dyke or levee fl-om end to end with the
best procutable anuteriai within a limited haul, filling in at the same time
where bights or indentations in the
bank, cut by the current, have been
reclaimed by the works.
It is likely that, during the freshet,
at lirst there will be a certain amount
of seepage through the new made dyke,
but this will be ultima*ely cured by
It might be desirable to raise the
bridge about one foot but as this
Would entail a considerable outlay in
building up the approaches it may be
postponed for the present.
The cost of the several works Suggested above is approximately estimated as follows :

Before it is too late, slop that succession of colds that means nothing more
nor less than catarrh. Stop the suffering. Slop the disagreeable catarrhal dis- j

Don't neglect yourself until consumption makes its fatal appearance. You can
be cured���not merely relieved, but absolutely and perfectly cured.

An Empress' Pen.
I heard an interesting inet regarding
the former empress of the French the
other night which shotva in what direction her thoughts ran. Whenever she
has occasion to write anything about
her lamented husband, she always uses
the diamond pen which signed the
treaty of Paris, All those who participated in this historical occasion wanted
the pen as a memento. But so keen was
the empress on possessing it that she
begged that only one pen should be
used, which she thought she had a
right to retain as a souvenir. This was
agreed to. The pen takes tlte form of a
quill plncked from a golden eagle's
wing and richly mounted with diamonds and gold.���Woman's Life.

I once witnessed a phase of prompt
evolution of practical and of devotional
religion in Scotch sheepdogs on a communion Sabbath among tho monntains.
The churchyard was crowded with
shepherds, accompanied by their dogs,
which lay quietly asleep at tho feet of
their masters. The sermon wus finished,
the psalm had been sung, the tinal
prayer was being offered, and there was
no sign of impatience, but tin- moment
tho benediction commenced the devotional doggies ail roused themselves,
and before the "Amen" they were in
marching order.���"Newman Hull," an

Before using Dr. Ward's Blood and
Nerve Pills I felt weak, nervous and run
down. I had lost weight steadily for
some timei my circulation was poor;
hands, feet and limbs wore cold. I always
felt weak and mymuscles trembled. Now,
after the use of one box of Dr. Ward's
Pills, I feel like my old self I have gained
fivo pounds in weight and too per cent,

than I have experienced in years. Dr.

No one con bo healthy with tho kidneys
In a disouseil or disordered state. The
poisonous Uric Acid which it Is their
duty to filter out of tho blood, is carried
Into the system anil produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Backaches and hundreds of ills and ailments.
Any one who has the slightest suspicion
that tlte kidneys are not noting right
should take Doan's Kidney Pills. They
are the most effective kidney remedy
known. Mr. Conrad Beyer, at E. K.
Snyderl-* Shoe Store, Berlin, Ont., bears
this out when he Bays:
' 'Anyone suffering with kidney troubles
cannot do bettor than take Doan's Kidney Pills, for thoy cured my wlfo who
has beon afflicted with pain In the back
and other kidney troubles for a long
time. They have helped a great many
of my acquaintances in this town, and I
mnst say thoy are the medicine that

There is not a

who has a child suffering from skin disease in any form but
will thank Mrs. Kelr-
stead, of Snider Mt.,
N.B , for telling of
tbe remarkable manner in which her boy,
Freddy, was cured
of one of the severest and most torturing of skin diseases
by tlio use of Burdock Blood Bitters; and
not only relieved and cured for the time
being, but, mark you, after tight years
the disease has shown no sign of returning.
The following is Mrs. Keirstead's
letter t���
"With gratitude I can testify to the
wonderful curative powers of Burdock
Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little
son, Freddy,Vas afflicted with salt rheum
anal was in a dreaiiful condition. His legs,
from (lie soles ol bis feet lo his body, were
entirely raw, and ran a bloody water,
which appeared to bum and itch until he
w.-is often in great agony.
"After trying several remedies, we resolved to give B. H. B. a trial.
"Vou can imagine wilh what delight
and gratitude wc saw our boy entirely
cured after using one boltlc and part of
the second. We gave him the remainder
of the second bottle, and from that time
till the present he has never bad a sign of
suit rheum or a sick day. You need not
wonder that I think there is no other
medicine can equal Burdock Blood Bitters
to purify the blood and build up the health

the summer of 1897 I was sadly afflicted witb stomach trouble, a deranged
liver and general debility. My entire system was in a morbid condition.
I felt as i-hongli I had an oppressive
weight on my stomach and eating was
sometimes followed by nausea. My
nights were made hideous by unpleasant dreams. I tried a good physician.
He doctored me for liver trouble and
dyspepsia, bt.t without avail, and for a
year I could And no remedy that conld
onre me. I felt perfectly worn out, had
no strength, appetite or energy. I
was prevailed npon by a friend from a
distance to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I purchased two boxes in June,
1898. Although I thought myself beyond cure, yet the first box had such n
surprising effect that I took courage as
my stength began gradually to return.
I continued taking the pills and now,
after using nine boxes, I feel as good a
man as ever and am in splendid flesh
I can eat, digest nud sleep well, while
before all food soured on my stomach

The Navigation Company have engaged a Mr. Warren of the Coast to
act as their engineer during the coming season, It is feared that navigation will be later in opening than last

and the opening is much later than
last season. It is doubtful whether
navigation will opon before the first of

was able toruo a couple of trips io

until the plans have been submitted to
nnd approved by tho authorities at
Ottawa. Mr. Gamble the Provincial
engineer has instructions to visit
Athalmer and prepare the plans and
particulars for the work and he has
written Mr. Griffith to say that he is
ou his way here for that purpose.
Wo have to thank the Hon. F. W.
Avliner for a plan of lhe new town*

now townsite are nicely gut up by Mr.
Aylmer. The main strerv is laid out
from the site of tho proposed bridge
over tiie Columbia River and is b'O feot

width of till feet. The townsite has
been well laid out, access being pro
vided around every lot. There is great
faith exhibited in the prospects of the
new townsite, and one day alone lust

The Spring Medicine Recommended by all the Ablest
In all well-run mills, factories and
mechanical establishments it is customary to close down for a short time
each year iu order to repair machinery.
Unless Ihis is faithfully attended to
there will be irregularity in wcrlt, serious breaks, disasters and heavy financial lossos.
It is the same with Ihe human body.
Its varied, complex and delicate machinery has been running without re
pairs for perhaps many > ems with disordered nerves, diseased liver and kidneys, and blood charged with poison
germs and impurities. The human organs and machinery jarring, weakened and working fitfully and irregularly
must bo strengthened and made a harmonious whole, or the entire fabrio
will soon break down.
This annual work of cleansing and
repairing is always successfully accomplished when men and women make
use of Paine's Celery Compound,
Amongst the first and most pleasing
results tbat come from the use of
Paine's Celery Compound in March is
pure, rich, bright red blood that courses

were J. E. Griffith. F. H. Bacon, W

the single rink were W. Skelton. D.
