LUCKY   FOR  BOWSER.
It is fortunate for Attorney-General
Jowser that it is not proposed to muke
.n. amendments to the Dominium
Elections Act retroative. One of the
amendments is to the effect that any
person circulating false statements wilh
a view to a if ecting the election of a
candidate for the parliamentery honois
shall be liable to a line of $500 or two
years imprisonment. It will be remembered that Attorney-GenerU
dowser at the last Provincial campaign
gave-voice to the ialse statement that
the Liberals were conniving with the
Gra;.d Trunk Pacfic railway company
to import 50,000 Japanese to work tn
construction of that ro«d. This utterly
foundationless statement seriously
affected the chances of several candidates and under the new law "Napoleon
Bowser would have been juvtly sentenced to a fine of several thousand dollars
or to serve a term of several years in
the pen'tentiary.—Nelson Daily Ne*"s.
"SOCIETY" COLUMN.
HUSHMIU   IMMMIIY
Tweed, Mar.h 10-The coroner's
jury brought in a verdict holding
Richard Linsay guilty of criminal
neglet in connection with the death of
his wife and two new-born bahie,.
Linsay had been sent for the doctor to
attend his wife. He took a cow along
with him to sell. Succeding in this, he j
forgot the doctor, and proceeded to
spend the meney in liquor. Along with
a young son, Mrs. Lindsay gave birth
to twins. The boy ran to neighbors,
half a mile away, but before these
could reach her, she had died, togather
w.th the two ' a ies.
Owing to the bashfulness tl our reporter in
gathering news Hy "asking many questions"
(Vide solden Star' we shall (eel grateful to
all our kind friends ol the male persuasion
who have to "pay the piper" ilffiey will help
us in our search For "hociely" items, an.
thus make this column oi much Interest to
Our many readers.
Mrs. Softday was "At home" on
Jrtonday. The other days of the week
she was on the street.
Mrs. Getthere and Mrs.  Igott  were
down to the Depot every day this week
on the arrival o 97.   They are anxious
to see|if they knew any of the "Porters'
on the Drawing-Room-Car.
The "Hosiery Club" met formutua.
admiration this week at the home ol
the Preadent. There waa a large
attendance of the members. The
subject under discussion was tht
Ganthony Concert, and much advent
criticism was passed on the Club's
official organ the "Star" for not publishing a fuil report of the headgear and
other wraps worn by the ladies in attendance. Itwasexp.aintdbytheSe.retarj
that the Editor of that paper was verj
busy just now making "Gateways" foi
distant and inaccessible parts of B. C,
to which Golden was to be the entrance,
so that possibly he had overlooked thi
lesa-weightier matter of ladies wearing
apparel.
Mrs. Bedford-Johns explained that
she was "English",-and that tht
concert was truly "English-you-know",
and it was impossible for this Club tt
pass over unnoticed such an unpardonable slight on the part of  the "Star.'
Mrs Makeup pointed out that alt hough
she was not English, yet she liket
people to believe she was, and that she
always sent to London for her stockings,
so that she could truthfully say then
was a good deal of the English aboui
her; at the same time she must admit
that she had often attended two-bi,
shows which gave her much more
satisfaction.
Mrs. Dustsaw said that her frienc
Mrs. Makeup must remember that shi
had been brought upon a farm, in plain
words she was a "Hayseed", anu
ciuld not beexp cted to know anything
about "Society".
Mrs. Makeup retorted that it wa-
currently reported among the numbeis
of the Club that Mrs. Dustsaw had
been a "Cook" previous to her marriage
and that tha had no reason to cast
reflections on other peopks early training.
At this point there were evidences of
a "scrap" and the President caj'ed the
meeting sharply to order.   She wished
to explain that recent information
indicated a large party of distinguished
Canoeists would arrive at Leant-oil
immediately on the opening of l avigation
and in the interests of Golden Society
sume arrangements should be made to
give them a suitable welcome. It was
vji much moment to every lady present,
ut the people expected were of the
must aristocratic order, and it was
manifestly unfair that the ladies of
I.eaiHuil should enjoy such a monopoly.
Mrs. Gosoftly stated that this was
altogether too weighty a subject to discuss at the present meeting. She herself iiaU over slept that morning, and
.iad left the breakfast and lunch dishes
unwashed, and now it was almost
ainner-time. She would have to get
.ionic at once, or else "hubby" would
oe compelled to go and get his dinner
n oae of those horrible "Chinese Dives"
..uverustci in the last "fatar."
I Ot course that would nave her a lot
j ot work, but just to thinK of what he
.night learn there! She moved that the
Prcidrntbe empowered to pioceeu wi h
ail poas.b.e despatch on snowahoes and
investigate the Leancoii matter, and to
make due enquiry as to the date of the
arrival of the Canoe Pai ty, and hand in
i lull report at the next meeting. In
jo ooing the Club would have more rename imormatioh than could be obtained in the toiumns of .ome newspapers, (names unmentionable) and be
,n a position to give this important
subject full_consideration.
The motion was unanimously carried.
Refreshments in the shape of Coffee
and Sweet Pickles were passed, and the
Club adjourned in joyful anticipation of
the President's Report next week.
Mrs. Makeup and Mrs. Dustsaw took
opposite sides of the street, and "looked
daggers."
SESSION OF
COUNTY COURT.
ONLY THREE   CASES WERE   UP
AT THIS SITTING.
A session of the county court was
held in the Court House last Monday

J.F. Browning, who was charged
with forging two cheques, one on
station agent Wells, and another on the
Kootenay Hotel for $28,00. was found
guilty and sentenced to one year imprisonment at New Westminster.

POOR OLD GOLDEN
Something over a year ago the
"Golden Star" changed hands; and tht
plant and outfit, was taken over by h
ompany cf newspaper adventurers
with puiitnal aspiraliuns tuiurther th
I'onseiValive cats.- aiid their ownend.. |
They brought in a "Business-End'
which they hud picked up in Victoria,
and ever sincu his arrival he has don.
his littie level best to make Golden t
laughingstock lor the outside wor.d.
Hia l.rsi attention was given to tht
Golaen ladies, whose manners ana
customs did not appear to appeal tt
the fancies of tht young man from
V.cturia; and in a series uf letter,
wrinen to himself, but unuer fictitious,
names, he endeavoured, in very baa
English, to point out the faults anu
deheencies of ourfemale population
As nobody seemed to know what ht
was driving at, he soon tired of this,
and then found fault with every conceivable institution .and constitution of tht
town. '',,.-
The Fire-hall, the Fire Company-atoa
all connected with it were a d.s^rac^
anu abominati„n. The streets and th..
yards were not tit to be seen in. iivei,
one of our must esteemed s hjol-teacnt-it
was hounded down from wejk lo ween
by another series of letter, written by
the "busines.-End'"'him'seif tohimsel.,
and was made out' to be a sort of lazy
good-for-nothing ah'aichist; who wou.e.
not even hoist the Empire's Flag,
The little ins gnili ant "Golden '1 imes
came in for another outburst of wrath,
but we care nothing for that, assurmj.;
our contempory that We are quite able
totuke tare of ourselves,-but we ao
object to our old and time-honorto
residents being called a lot of olu
"Moss-backs"! We wonder how such
men as J. C. Greene, Captain Ann-
strong, C.A.Warren, J. E. Gjiilitjh,
H. G. Parson, F. 11. Bacon, Matiu.e.
D.inard and many other "old-timers"
like the name of "Moss-back"
Yet that is what the "Busineas-End"
of the "Star" says tney are in its last
issue. If you don't believe thi.', read
it and see.
* * *
Of late, the "Business-End" of the
"Star" has been busy making "Cti
ways." A few wetks ago he m hu
factured a beauty.-whereby Golu.-ii
would very shortly become the "supply-
point" for the construction work on

iVe nrght call-the attention of tne

now at work some 500 to 600 men within 40 miles of' Golden, and only some
three hours run lor a j're ght train over
a fairly good bitwf rdad; and we had
never yet heard of one of our locd
merchants being-rushed to the limit in
snipping them si ppnes. If contractors
within 40 miles of Golden refuse to get
.heir supplies here, just imagine what
a grand rush there .will be in Golden
tor supplies when the contractors are
oOO mues away!      «■«  ■
Wo congratulate, our local M. P. P.
in getting such a nice appropriotion lor
this new trail, and hope he will continue
the good work ond get some more, but
it is all nonsense lor,'the'' 'fStar" ' to
make out that it means a line of"5 connection with the „G.  T.- P.
But this is not the latest ''fad" on
the part of the "Star" Last week he
made a new discovery. Some one had
reported anew "Gold-Ktrike" "near
Hazelton, a.tt wii near thu western coast

which the province Claimed reve sic.a..

juarier-interest.   To tins  thegoyei.-
uent refused to agree, declaring thi.
svhile it wu.i satisfied wiih the first par
af the programme, it would .taelf administer the provincial interest in the-
totvnsite.   In  this way it   would   b.
impossible for the provincial lands to u.
disposed of to any person  who migu
subsequently  turn  them over to tlie
railway.
Tne executive council firmly took the
position that if the company announced
Princo Rupert or any other port in tne
north as its ocean terminus it must aa-
iiere to that declaration for all time -
that investors in good faith would have
to be protected against any possib.e
change ef terminus.
The government also refused to forego any provincial rights in the matter
of liquor licenses at the northern terminus of the company, it having the
machinery for the control of the liquor
traiiic all over the province and proposing to hold to it.
Exemption from taxation for a period
of ten years, the aarne as to be granted
to any other railway, was conceded to
tne Grand 'frank Pacific by the government.
There are also a number of other
important matters embraced by the
agreement concerning-.which practically of the executive council.

when completed, will take  the  tourist
through     scenery     of     unsmvass.u

attractiveness 01 the ij;-.rk.
In addition to this, seventy miles oi
fence have been constructed at a cos.
of about one thousand dollars a mile.
This fence is lor the purpose of keeping the buffaloes from straying, anu is
made of extra heavy wire, inn; feet
high,
One of the chef assets of the Paik
is the herds of butfaio (North American
bison), and 111 this connection it is interesting to note that Canada now owns
at lea t iour-uiihsof the buffalo in existence. In all there are in the Park
nearly one thousand of these anirna s
that have in so la^ years become suc.i
a rarity on the western plains. 'Ihe
heard was largely added to last year by
the purchase from a Montana.man of no
less than seven hundred. It is thought
that in a few years Canada will own a
big herd and there Seems now to be lets
danger that the buffalo will become extinct, as had been feared.
Besides the buffalo the Government
has a regular menageria of other ani-
.mals at the park, including moose, elk,
and deer, that-are kept in l.ige enclosures,, while the mountain lions and
other savage beasts are kept in cages
It is hoped in time to have a complete
collection of the fauna of the far west.
The number of tourists that visit tlie
park is increasing every year, and Mr.
Douglas states   hat list year, the total
number that went there was over thirty j Deeb Lodsb lVi()lU> ^mi n
