cheap for cash. For price,

information apply to
Mr. Dorman, assistant, post  office
inspector was in  town  on  Monday.
He was seen  by a Ledge reporter
and said:  'T have just returned from
Three Forks where I opened an office
and .appointed Mr..H. H. Pitts, postmaster.    They will be'supplied once
a weeK with a mail made up at the
Denver, office.   The mail for New
Denver  will  beginning . with  this
week go in on Fridays and come out
on.'Tuesdays.   This  will  give  the
people  more time  to  write    their
letters so as not  to 'miss. the mail.
From Three Forks'Ilnten&ecltohave
gone to Kaslo, but found that it was
impossible to  get through   by stage
owing to  the  soft condition of.; the
roads.    I will, go around by  Nelson
to Kaslo, Lardo ahd other- points.    I
hear quite a number. of complaints
here about  the   Nakusp postmaster.
Bnt I hear similar complaints everywhere.    I have to protect the post*
master as well as the people.    Unless
specific changes in,writing'are made
against a postira ftlr, nothing-can be
done as  general t charges   verbally
made do not  amount  to , anything:
The salary of the,! Nakusp' office is
very small, considering tlie amount
pf-business done at. this point, ^nd the
position or1 postmaster is  not   an envious one,"   Mr. Dorman is a mild,
even tempered man and »eems to be
qualified for the business   he   is engaged in.     . , ,
Trout Creek Valley.
R. S. Burton and S. Walker have
been preparing for the past week to
make a trip down the river to Trout
Creek Valley, about 23 miles from
Nakusp. They will take lumber
and' sufficient building material to
coustruct two houses. This valley
which contains about 30,000 acres of
fertile land was discovered last Juno
by Messrs. Burton and Walker. They
'took up their claims early in the
summer and already there are thirty
actual settlers and more coming in.
Those who know say there is a splendid pass to Slocan lake from the valley, and about 11 miles up Trout
creek there are signs of placer work
having been done years ago. Land
in this valley shoul be very valuable,
as being within easy, distance of
the mines everything will find
ready sale at high, prices.
The Cariboo Election.
Ashcroft, B. G, Oct. 4.—The election to fill the vacancy in Cariboo
caused bv the death  of Mr.   I.   B.

house and that a site has been procured on Broadway and _ a building
will be erected as soon as passible.
The government has ' been notified
and a teacher is expected here in
about two weeks;;' The people of tin's
young town deserve much credit for
the liberal manner in which they
%ave responded; to Mr. McDougall's
efforts to have a school established
here.

The Nakusp & Slocan Railway.
Work on the railway is be'ng
pushed forward with all possible despatch. The bridges are being put on
as fast as the timber can be sent out.
Thetrack is laid ; about four miles
out of town. Everything is being
well done and although the grade is
as much as 1400 feet in 14 miles, i-
will, when finished compare favor*
ably with any .mountain rofd on the
continent
Supt. Wilson of the C- P. R. tele-
gaaphline was in town this week.
He states that Nakusp will have

Captain Fitstubbs wras in town on
Monday, and made arrangements
with the Inland Corskaction Co., to

tion of those who "all into the meshes
of the law. This is a move in the
right direction and will be appreciated
by all good citizens of Nakusp.
Mr. B. Rodd, of Nelson is spending
a few days in town.
The Kootenay   came  down river,
yesterday with GO tons of steel rails.
It is reported that the water is too low
•for this steamer and that the smaller
steamers will take her place.
Messrs. Frank S. Barnard, M. P.,
Wulffsohn, Loewn and Campbell,
directors of the Nakusp Land and
Improvement Co., were in town -or a
few hours on Monday evening.
D. A. McDougall, the popular landlord of the Leland Hause is renovating his hotel. He is fitting up the
third floor by adding sleeping.accommodation for twenty people.
This' will be appreciated by the
travelling public
J. M. Heney, contractor for the
last five miles of the A &.R. railway
was in towrn this week. He was on
his way to Nelson to hire teams to
work on the grade.
■ Genelle's sawm' 1 under the able
management of Mr. Reid continues to
ran almost night and day in order to
keep up with the demand for bridge

men at the nf 11 and in the woods

Magee & O'Toole shot four fine
geese one day this wreek. Con.
Doherty secured some of them and
gave a goose dinner on Tuesday.

with a force of gentlemen in reduced
circumstances has been busily engaged in blasting stumps and grading
the street in an artistic and practicable manner. When finished it will
make a beautiful thoroughfare. Dan
has our thanks for taking tlie stumps
away from the front of this office,

The Mission City News does not
think much ofthe Independent party
or the forthcoming convention at
Kamloops. Among other things it
says:
There ia nothing in common, nor
in sympathy between the members of
the Independent party. They represent views widely different. * * *
Parties are generally formed by a
number of individuals rallying
around some principle or principles
with which they are in sympathy.
The would-be division in this province is devoid of any such principle
and farther more the Independent
party is composed of men holding extremely different views on the leading iquestions of government. To
harmonize these differences is a hopeless, task.
The News proceeds to dress these
so-called Independents down in a
vigorous style and contends that 'If
the people of the province are ex-
pectedt,to support a party they have
a right to know what are the objects
of their existence. To snpport: a
change for the sake of a change is
just like a man wasting his shots in
the air without an aim or a purpose."
Our cotcmporary has no faith in your
for-sale-to-the-highest-bidder Independents, for which in the estimation
of the News there is no room in British Columbia. It does not approve
of the action of a few hot-heads who
arecworking up a scheme to divide
the province into two parts. Every
loyal citizen will give the hydra-
headed monster, secession, the cold
shoulder. The policy now-a-days of
all patriotic men should be creating
sectional jealousies and animosities.
Your so-calied Independent, carne-
leon-like, changes his views and expressions to suit the locality, and the
people he is haranguing. At declamation he is an adept, but wrhen
asked to make known the policy of
himself and his associates he is unable to do so, because they have
none. With such' diverse compOii-■
ents as makes uo the Opposition how
long would it be possible for.it to
hold together? The people are beginning to size up artful dodgers like
Messrs. Cotton, Brown and Kitchen,
who are straining every nerve to get
at the treasury ofr the province/ But
the indications are that it will be
many a long, day yet ere such governmental ihcapables, als ^tthese uji-
doubt^iy.^yould be, will be given
the opportunity they arer;, at present
struggling so hard to secure. When
that time comes the truest and best
friends of this province may well exclaim, God help British Columbia!—
World.

Aii Englishman registering as Mr.
Gray at one of thehotelsi fo Taebma
is said to have dropped $2,200^ at one
of the  local  gambling  places.   On
Wednesday evening Gray went out

at the bank of British Columbia, and
in a short time was returned to the
hotel overcome with stimulants.    It
is said he was robbed of $500, one
man getting  $200 in a .bunch.   A|
witness'to his losses at the,Monogram
saloon says he had the batik  nearly
broken and went  out  to " dine  attd
wine, only to return bent on breaking  the   roulette   bank.     He   wa*
maudlin and the man at the wheel
is accused of calling wrong numbers
and  raking    in   bets  accordingly.

England notes, on one bet, and quit
$2,460  loser.    The  gamblers  were
watching for him to play on Thurs*
day.   His wife and relatives are distracted.    He   did  not  develop  the
passion  for gambling until Monday
night, although' he has been on'^the

1 It is now asserted, that the Tacoma,
taxpayers had to'dishurse^i, 500,000
more for the water works than tlieir
worth.   The supply was deliberately
over represented to an extent, that
will call for fully this expenditure to
make good the deficit.   .
Telephone communication is now
established between Spokane and
Everett b}' way of Portland. The
line will be one of the longest in the
world, only second to that of 900

The Victoria police are stopping
Saturday night drawings ; for pipe
prizes, as coming within the scojie of
the laws rendering lotteries illegal.
A Mr. Morris was profitably conducting a series of these, but has now desisted at the urgent bidding of a chief

law.
The opium smugglers of Washington State allege that there is now
such keen competition in the business, that there is nothing in it for an
' 'honest smuggler."
The Dominion Government ha-s, at
the request of the Hon. Colonel Baker
decided to extend its coast telegraph
line from Victoria as far Alberni, a
distance of 20 miles. It is considered
that the line will be useful, not only
in reporting wrecks, but also for commercial purposes in connection with
mining and industrial interests.

Yes, Canada is Slow.
The Buffalo Times tells us that Can-
a da is sure to be slow, says the Hamilton Spectator.    Well, a good many
banks in the United Sisates are;slow
to be sure of their  ability to  meet
current demands.    However, it must
be confessed that Canada is a little
slow.    Her population  has increased
' only seven-fold, while   that  of the
United States has increased six-fold.
Her railway mileage is only a little
greater  in proportion to population
than that of the. United States.     Her
fbreig'n  trade is  only.; 50 per ceiit.
greater  tlian* that  of*   the   United
States."   Her shipping is only three
times as great in proportion to population as that of the United States.
The Canadian farmer gets only 20
bushels of wheat to the acre, while
the  United.  States  farmer  gets 13
bushels.    Yes, Canada is slow.    We
ought to be ashamed  of ourselves.
because any comparison between the
Dominion and the Republic is possible.    If we cannot beat the United
States more than that, we should go
and put our heads in soak.

~ There is evidence that the people of
Canada are becoming'^increasingly
temperate in their use of or abstention

Twenty-four years ago the amount of
sprits consumed in the Dominion averaged oyer one and a half gallons
per head, while last year the average
was below half a gallon per head.

For many years Heidelburg University had had the honor of owning
the largest barrel, or "tun." as they
call it, in the world. Tney have had
the honor, although it does not really,
belong to vhem, for Arizona has a
barrel that makes theirs fade into in-
sigriiiicence. The one at He'del-
burg will not hold liquid, neither
will the one in Arizona. In this
they are the same, but are different
in many other ways. Arizona's barrel is the work of nature, and it' is
on a high peak of mountain, about
live miles Irom Aguas Calientas,
which is in the Cataliha Mountains,
about sixteen miles from a railroad.
The barrel is one of those peculiar
rock formation, and is about 200 feet
high, and the top of it is at least
2,030 feet above the valley. It can
be seen for miles before the traveller
gets to it, and its appearance is most
deceiving. It requires no effort of
the imagination to see the large
utensil of Bacchus perched on its
peak with a glass under a faucet as
if ready to be filled. A large fissure
in a certain spot forms a biinhole. It
does not look like a barrel unless
seen fromj the plain; on all other
sides it is simply a rugged rock.
It is a soft granite formation of volcanic origin, and is crumbling to
pieces all the time. It is so soft that
half a dozen men with picks could
knock it to pieces in a few days.
