EMMA GOLDMAN
IN THE TOILS
She Is Charged With Conspiracy to Assassinate President McKinley.
Claims She Knows Nothing
of Czolgosz and Denounces His Act.
J'OU
tbe
the
Chicago, Sopt. 10.���Emma Goldman,
whose speeches, according to the man
himself, fired thc brain of Czolgosz,
the would-be assassin of Piesident
MoKinley, was arrested here todaj.
Miss Goldman's manner was defiant
as sho was led into the oflice of Chiet
of Police O'Neill, but she disclaimed
all knowledge of t zolgosz and his
crime, admitting only that she mot
liim here July 12.
'Do yon know that your words arc
what caused Czolgosz to attack tbe
President?" she was naked.
"I don't, I never advocated violence. I scarcely knew the man. 1
was leaving for Rochester,via Buffalo,
when Czolgosz had a fow words with
me. He said he bad heard me lecture
at some memorial in Cleveland last
May and that he wanted to know me.
I scarcely remember anything about
h'ni, savo that his complexion wnp
light."
"Then bow do you know that this
man is the one wbo tried to kill the
President'.'"
"Oh I" with a shrug of the shoulders, "I guess that from wbat the
nowspnpers say.''
"What did yon tliink when
heard that an attempt to kill
President had been made'.'-'
woman was asked.
With a wave of her hands and an-
othei shrug of the shoulders, she answered dninfully, "I thought, Oh!
the fool."
The prisoner's manner was growing
more and more vxcited and she made
an evident effort to control herself.
In this she eventually succeeded, and
launched into u discourse of the teachings of anarchists. She declared that
anarchy did not toach men to do thc
act which has made Czolgosz despised
and hatod the world over. "Wo work
against the system and education is
oar watchword. " sho said. "It was
early last July when I came to
Chicago to visit the Isaaks' family,"
she continued, in answer to intorro*
gatlnns concerning her whoroabouts
recontly. "On the night of July 12
Isaaks was out of tbe house whon the
hell rang and I went to tho door.
Thu man who, I loam through the
newspapers,was Czolgosz, stood there.
He snid Ah wanted to see me. 1 was
about to collib tho Nickel Plate train
as 1 and Mr. Isaaks' daughter weie
about to go to Rochester. We want to
thc Hock Island depot, but I wns so
busy taking leave of my friends that I
scarcely noticed him. It was not a
timo when ono would want to make
new friends. At the depot, 1 bad a
few words with him which 1 have
told. That whk all there ever was
between us. I am au anarchist, u stu-
dent of socialism, hut nothing more
Nothing in anything I ever snid to
l.eon Czolgosz knowingly would have
led him to do the act whioh startled
everybody on Friday.''
'Not even In yout lectures'.' lie
says your words set his brain on
fire," asked tbo Interviewer.
"Am 1 noeonntable tocause Rome
cracked brained porson put a wrong
construction on my words? Leon
Czolgosz, I am convinced, planned the
deed unaided and entirely alone.
There is no anarchist ring which
would help him. There may be anarchists who would murder, but there
also are mon in every walk of life
who sometimes feel the impulse to
kill. 1 did not know surely, but I
think Czolgosz wns one of those down
trodden men who seo all the misery
which rich inflict upon the poor; who
think ot it, who brood over it, and
then in despair resolve to strike a
great blow as they think, for the good
of their fcllcw men, but that is not
anarchy. Czolgozs, (the woman pronounced tbe named with the greatest
ease,) Czolgozs mny huve been inspired
by me, but If be was ho took the
wrong way of showing it."
Police olllcials are nol satisfied
With Miss Goldman's story. When
Captain     Schuottler    and     Detcctivo
Hertz discoverd her at the home of
one Norris. at 303 Sheffield avenue,
she denied her identity.
"Hello, Miss Goldman," said the
captain as he entered tho pallor,
"Are you glad to see tne?"
"I'm not Miss  Goldman;    I   am   a
i Swedish woman and my name is Lena
Lnrson."   answered   the   woman  endeavoring   to   imitate     tho  Swedish
dialect.
"All right, I speak Swedish my
self," said the police officer, as she
poured out a few questions In the
Norse tongue. Miss Goldman did not
answer, affeoting to misunderstand.
Detective Hertz, meanwhile had been
investigating and had discovered a
pen with the name Emma Goldman
engraved thereon.
"What does this mean?" shouted
tbo captain, holding the tell tale article before its owner's eyes.
"It means that the game is np," she
said. She then admitted her identity
and accompanied the police to the
office of chief O'Neill.
Capt. Colleynn. chief of detectives,
has sworn out a warrant charging
Emma Goldman with conspiracy to
assassinate President McKinley. She
is being held at the central police
station in this city.
RAILWAY TO
THE SULLIVAN
activity in boundary.
Railway    Construction     ia     Making
Things Vory Lively.
F. H. McCarter, of tho Grand Forks
Gazette, is in the eity and reports that
considerable railway construction is
in progress in and around that town.
Che most important is the
V.   V.
E., which is building from Marcus to
Grand Forks and from Grand Forks
to Republic. Between Grand Forks
and Cascade l'.l!> mon are at work and
betweeu Grand Forks and Republic
ii()0 aro at work. On tho Grand Forks
and Republic, an enterprise which is
being pushed by Giand Forks people,
about 2.10 men are at work. Ferguson .t Co. have the contraot for this
road and have astablished supply
camps for their men and teams at
Nelion and Curlew, Wash. It is
claimed that the entire line will be
graded in 90 days, then tlie laying of
steel will be commencod and that
trains will be running by January
1st., 11102. The V. V. ... E. will, it is
thought, be completed from Marcus to
Grand Forks by December 1st and to
Republic by February or Mnroh of
next year.
A trail is being built to tap the
coal measures situated 70 milos from
Grand Forks on the west fork of the
uortn fork of tho Kettle river. The
trail will bo completed beforo snow
Hies. Some 35,400 acres of coal land
havo boen taken up. Tho seams are
from three to six feet wide, whore
thoy outcrop on the rivor bank, bnt
havo not yet been fully prospected and
mny be muoh wider. Tho coal has
boen analyzed by several different
analytical chemists and is pronounced
first class steam aud cooking coal.
The Granby smelter people bave taken
tests to investigate the find and if it
proves as good as it is thought it is
it will be opened up.
"Work is being pushed on tho Cas-
oade Power & Light company's plant
and the company should be ready to
deliver power in a short time. Tho
right-of-way for tho polo line bas been
cleared between Cascade und Phoenix,
lt is 100 feet wide and a gang of men
is now engaged in putting up the
polos.
"(Iiand FoiksJ is prospering to a
greater degree than over before and
there is not a single vacant residence
or store in the town, uud as a result
of this demand a number of residences nnd one or two business blocks
nre being orocted,
"The addition which is being made
to the Granby smelter is being pushed.
All tbe machinery for tho enlarged
plant is on the ground und is being
placed in position. It is thought tho
increased plant will be ln operation
iu 00 duys."
Mr. McCarter said nothing definite
had been learned concerning the site
of the Breon smelter.
Returning to the question of ralwuy
construction Mr. McCartor said: "A
report has been current lo the effect
thnt the V. V. .t E. branch from
Grand Forks to PhooDix would not bo
constructed. This is a mistake. The
delay is caused because the company
wishes to get tbe consent of the government to build over mineral claims
which have not yet boon crown
granted. As so on as this consent
lias been obtained the work will bo
begun and pushed to an early
completion."
Road to Garry Ore tc thc
Smelter Will Shortly Be
Constructed.

North Star Mine Maintaining
Steady Shipments���Oeneral Mining News.
Kimberley,' B. C, Sept. 8.���Tho
North Star ia shipping regular consignments ot ore daily, and will continue to do go, there being any quantity of ore in sight, and a strike of
six feet of solid ore havlAg been made
on one of the claims adjoining tho
North Star group, a few days ago, has
created a great deal of satisfaction
throughout the camp. There is no
doubt but that with the right kind
of development work, more ore bodies
will be discovered in the vicinity of
the town of Kimberley, as the indications of their existence arc plentiful,
in fact so plentiful) that it is very
difficult for the prospector to know
when he is on thc right track.
MaryBville, which is a townsite
now rapidly coming before the attention of the public, and which is situated four miles from Kimberley, is
the point where the Sullivan people
Have decided to erect their smelter
nnd refinery, and the survey of the
smelter site is now being made. The
advent of thin will be the means of
stimulating mining development to an
enormous extent, and many prospcots
around Kimberley will be turned into
shipping mines, making it a second
Kossland.
It is understood that very satisfactory arrangements have been made
with the Canadian Paoific railway
company for the transportation of ore
from the Sullivan mine to the smelter and Mr. Lumsden and staff arc
now surveying a ronte for a branch
line from Kliuberlby to the Sullivan,
and as soon as a feasible route bas
been chosen railway constiuetion
will commence and be rushed ahead
until completed.
The Sullivan mine is expocted to
open up with a large force of men
shortly, ns it will take a considerable
number to keep tne smoltar supplied
with ore, and a good deal of preparatory work will have to be done.
The Canadian Pnciflo railway company have just completed the construction of a beautiful seotion hoUBe
in this town, with stone foundations,
which iB not their rule throughout
Enst  Kootonuy.
Matters are taking a decided turn
for the better in the affairs of the
Salmo Consolidated Mining company
a ooncorn well known in Nelson and
holding valuable mineral properties
In the neighborhood of Salmo on the
Nolson A, Fort Sheppard railroad.
A geneial meeting of tbe company
wns held in Sarnln, Ont,, recently and
one of the first steps was tho election
of a new board of directors: II. II.
Ogden, M. A. Sailers, William Ellis,
\V. G. Marriott, and J, Hrunnetts, of
Sarnia; Ii. Owens, M, II., London,
Ont. i E. C. Williams, Port Huron; C,
0, Lalonde, V. P. Wisenthal and Sidney lloblm of Rossland. This effectually removes one of tho obstacles to
tbe success of the corporation. Heretofore the directors have been unable
to agree as to the management and
tho friotlon has canned the development of the mine to be in u senso a
secondary fentuie.
It was further resolved to call for
a voluntary assessment by tho shareholders, a��*giogntlng two oents per
share and payable within a stipulated
period. This would pay off any outstanding obligations and enable thc
development of thc property to
proceed.
At the record office yosterduy there
were no locations entered. Certificates of work were Issued to A. Parr
on the Paihlliioer and Moonbeam; to
Nels Ererson on thc lllne.k Hawk and
Louisa; to A. Bunker on the Royal
Charter Transfers, one-third interest
In the News Gir", from (1. W. Taylor
to R. McGregor, and one-fourth interest in the Nelson from Edward Colo
to W. T. hoggin, the consideration in
both cases being nominal.
Physicians In Attendance on
President Sure of Ultimate Result.
Steady Progress of Improvement Was Well Maintained
Yesterday.
Ruft'alo, Sept. lo.���The reports of
tbe eminent surgeons and physicians
in attendance upon tbe wounded President today committed themselves
without reservation to the opinion
that their patient %vab out of danger
and that only the possibility of complications threatened his life. They
did not say that his recovery was certain collectively over tbeir signatures
in au official bulletin. That was more
than could be rokpd in reason. Scientific men, no i' attar how strong their
convictions n igttt be, could not be
expocted to an um I the grave responsibility of ooi fidently proclaiming the
cortainty of tl e recovery of a man
lying on a led o' pain with a bullet
hole in his stou.ach. Hut they went a
long way towaids it. Individually and
separately during the day each,
with tlie exception of Dr. Rixey,
who did not leave the Milburn residence, placed himself squarely on
record not privately to the friends of
the President, but publicly through
the agency of the press that the danger point had passed and thnt the
President would survive the attempt
upon his life.
"Of course we will all feel easier
when a week has passed," said Dr.
MoBvncy, the Dean of the Corpse.
"We would like to see every door
locked and double locked, but the
danger from possible complications is
now very remote.'' As an evidence of
the supreme faith he holds Dr. Mc*
Burnev after the morning consultation made a trip to Niagara Falls and
thiB evening returned to New York.
He could reach here again in ten
hours if tbe unexpected should happen, and there should be a change for
the worse. The little piece of lead in
thc mnscles of the back is giving the
physicians no concern whatever.
Unless it should piove troublesome to
tho patient later on, he will probably
cany his grim souvenir of tbe anarchist with him to the end of his days,
The doctors sav that once encysted it
can do no harm. Thousands of men
are today walking tlie earth ln perfect
health with muoh larger chunks of
load in their Codies. The X Ray
machino is ready for use and if there
is tho slightest inflammation or pain
in tlie vicinity of the bullet an operation will bo performed.
The Vice-President, Members of the
cabinet, Senator Hanna, and the other
distinguished friends of the President
who have remained here to awuit the
issue, accepted tbe verdict of tlie
physicians today as practically conclusive nnd there was an exodus of
those who consider tbeir presence no
longer necessary. Senator Hanna returned to Cleveland on business today
to be gone two days and Comptroller
Dawes wont back to Washington tonight. Abner McKinley, the Prisi-
dont's brother, will remain a few
days longer Out his family have returned home and Mrs, Duncan Hnd
seveial other relatives cf the President have gone. Judge Day, long
asBociatod with the Preddent, returned to Canton this afternoon. Five
membeis of the cabinet still here,
will remain a fo*v days, rather as
friends who have been Intimately
associated with the President for
years than as public officials. Vice-
President Roosevelt, left the city tonight at U.ilO for Oyster llay, peifectly
confident that the Piesident will recover. So confident was he in faot,
that when a question of doubt was
put to bim lie answered with a purry.
He waa asked : "Do you remember
that President Garfield progressed for
ten days and that then just when ho
was leady to get out be collapsed
and finally died?"
Qllok as thought the Vice-President answered: "Ah, but you forget
twenty years of modern surgery, of
progress. From what I can learn also
the Garfield wound was much more
serious than thc wound of President
McKinley. I believe that the President will recover   and   believe   it  so
thorougnly       that     I      leave       heie
tonight."
I Questioned as to the mode of pro-
jcedure so far as the state was concerned, he said : "I smc no reason for the
call of an extraordinary grand Jury,
Thc grand jury now in session composed of American citizens will undoubtedly take care of tho would-be
astassio and the authorities of Erie
county, will, for county, state, and
national pride, make a vigorous prosecution. Dnlese Governor Udell is
asked to interfere, I see no need of
his cnlling an extia term or deputising an assistant attorney general to
prosecute."
Asked to the enaoting of legislation
against anarchists, be said: "I have
not thought muoh on the matter.
What has disturbed mo has been to
find a reason even for anarchy to
attack a man like''resident MoKinley.
Hero is the country where tbey are aU
owed peifect freedom of speech. Here
the ruler is a man descended from
the farm, the same as Adam. He is a
man who has no future or means
otber than that which he may manage
to save out of his salary as President.
Piobably many a working man in the
United States today has a larger
amount of real estate than Mr. McKinley. lu addition he is a kindly
disposed Christian gentleman and in
every great emergency in whicli he
could act has been a friend to the
common people. Why should ho then
be shot by anarchists?"
The President's physicians have
been impressed with his remarkable
.ecuperative powers and thc rapidity
of his improvement.
Bulletin.���Milburn House, Buffalo,
Sept. 10.���The Milburn house is very'
quiet tonight, there are few callers.
The President is said to be resting
comfortably.
Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 10.���
The following bulletin was issued by
the physicians at 10.30 p. m.: 'The
condition uf tbe President is unchanged in all important particulars.
His temperatme ia 100.0, pulse 114,
respiration 28. When the operation
was done on Friday last it was found
thnt the bullet had carried with it a
short distance beneath the skin a fragment of the President's olethes. The
foieign material was, of course, removed, hut a slight irritation of the
tissues was produced, the evidence of
which has appeared only tonight. It
has been necessary on account of this
slight disturbance to remove a few
stitchos and partially open the skin
wound. This incident cannot give
rise to other complications but it ie
coramuuii .ited to the public as the
surgeons in attendance wish to make
their bulletins freely frank. In consequence of this separation of edges of
surface wound,the healing of the same
will be somewhat delayed. The President is now well enough to begin to
tako nouiisliiuenl by the mouth ir.
the form of pure beef juice. (Sgd.)

Vancouver, B. C Sept. 10.���The
steamship Tartar brings the following
advices from the Orient: Captain
Valasco, the seuond officer, two engineers and three seamen of the steamer
Belglca, of Manila, were killed in a
mutiny on board the vessel at Cebu,
ou the lower Chinese Coast. Tho
steamer had been trading between
Hong Kong and Coast ports ever since
the first of June. Her crew of Lascars
became dissatisfied and are supposed
to have been joined by pirates in a
plot to massacre the Europeans on
board the vessel. The boat had run
into the moutb of a creek where a
load of firewood was to be taken
aboard. Tlie crew objected and armed
with swords rushed after the captain
and officers. The captain waa killed
at the foot of tho gangway coining
from tbe bridge, and the others mot
death in other parts of tho ship. Tho
first officer was ashore and has not
since ueen heard of. The mutineers
then cast the steamer adrift and sho
was picked up by nu American gunboat. The Ilelgioa Is a 500-ton boat
worth $200,000, reoently ehangod to
American register.
A disappearing mountain is the
latest sensation for tourists in Japan.
A few davs before the steamship Tartar left for Vancouver, a mountain in
lgufln district slid into a subletranciin
lake, as the re~ult of an earthquake.
When the peonle in that district went
to bed on a certain night the mountain wus in position. Next morning
it hnd sunk nearly out of sight. Its
top was surroundod by water, and it
is supposed that the wator of tho
underground lake came to the surface
and took the pluce of the base of tho
mountain. The mountain settled 300
feet.
The business portion of the important Chinese oity ot Foo Qbow was

GROTWII OF THE WEST.
The Toronto Mail and Empire finds
that the returns from die West aie
tho one bright spot in the census. It
says.
"The-better part of the censns"story
is the intimation that during the past
decade the population from the Ontario boundary westward to the Pacific
hus increased by 203,490. We now
have 581,000 people in the West where
there were but 52,00(1 in 1871. Thirty
years have multiplied the population
by eleven, aud the process of augmentation has merely commenced. We
have just scratched a pait, and that a
very small part, of the fertile soil,
while the search for minerals has
been simply perfunctory.
"The good harvests of the plains, together with the tick finds in the
mountains, are justifying those Canadians wbo from the first thought well
of tbeir own country. Now we have
experienced a steady growth under
thf Western skies. While it iB; perhaps, not so rapid a growth as had
been expected or desired, it is nevertheless hopeful for it points to still
greater progress in the future, i Increasing at an equal rate during the
next ten years the prairie and Pacific
seetions would boast a million inhabitants. The addition of eighty thousand to tbe Northwest Teiritories,
birngs the population there up to
145,000 and warrants the emancipation
of that huge district from the swaddling clothes of Ottawa control and
its elevation to the provincial status.
Under conditions of development
much less striking Manitoba became
a province and thus enjoyed com
plete local self government. Manitoba, with nearly a quarter of a million people, may also claim with fair-
neBs a forward move as regards school
lands Canada holds in trust for it.
There is no reason why that Province
should not take charge of its educational endowment and administer It
as may seem   best.
But the advancement of British Columbia by 1)2,000, is if possible, the
most interesting of all the increases.
The sea of mountains has tin red out
splendidly. Few eastern people can
appreciate its wealth. All through it
are the vast mineral deposits, mingled
with excellent ranges for cattle, and
valleys, the prodnot'veness of which
is unequalled. The Pacific coast, with
its giant vegetation, its even climate,
its long summer, and its rich soli, is
practically our tropical seotion.
While in the aggreagte the censui*
figures aro disappointing, those from
the west are calculated to give us re
lief not only because they servo to
show thnt with favorable conditions
the rate of increae there ought to be
kept up.''
ASSAYERS WILL ORGANIZE.
The assayors of the province are to
meet in this city on November 8th for
tbe purpose of forming an association
on lines similar to tluse followed by
other soientific and professional
bodies. Assayers in this province have
to submit to an oxamination before
they are allowed to practice and when
Ihey pass successfully certificates
allowing them to mike assays and
analyses are issued to them. This
course was found necessary for the
mason that a number of individual*.
who were not fully competent hung
out their signs ns assayers in this
province during the earlier days of
lode mining and often tbe assays returned by them to their patrons did
not represent tho true value of the
ore Biibmitted. Sometimes tbe assay
exaggerated the value of the rook and
at others it undei valued lt. There-
suits was that deals were made at
time on these assays which turned out

EPIDEMIC OF WEDDINGS.
An epidemic of wedding- broke out
on the United States transport Thomas
during her recent voyage from San
Francisco to the Philippines. The
vessel sailed on July 24th with throe
hundred teachers on board who had
been engaged by the government to
teach the young Filipinos to become
loyal citizens and'not to shoot at the
American soldiers as soon as they become large enough to handle guns.
Little did' the American authorities
think they were establishing one of
tho most successful .matrimonial
bureaus of modern times when I they
allowed 200 batctielors and 100 spinsters to ..ail on one vessel or tbey
would have sent the ladies on one
transport aud" the gontlenen on
another. The fatal error is seen now
when it is too late; but it wuS like
putting fire aud tow together ae the
outcome proved.
By the time tho transport seached
Honolulu thirty couples were engaged
and as soon as the gang plank was
put out they hurried ashore, sought
out ministers' and others empowered
to marry and wero joined in the holy
bonds of matrimony. Three couples,
who were a little slow, finally made
up their minds to marry while the
vessel was in the harbor at Honolulu,
and were highly indignant because
the captain would not delay sailing
for a day or two in order thnt
trousseaus might be prepared, ahd
knots tied. The vessel sailed for
Manila and has not been heard from
since her arrival there but tbe presumption is that nearly nil the remaining 07 spinsters were'under engagement and were happily married
when the vessel reached that port.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
W. A. Galliher, M. P., in talking
about the increased representation
which British Columbia will have
under the reapportionment made
necessary by the figures of the census,
stated tbat the province should have
an increase of two members, one from
Yalo-Cariboo and the other froiiT
Hurrard. If the increase is granted,
as expected, the province will he entitled to an additional senator: With
two more representatives and one
more senator the provincial delega
tion should cot quite a figure as the
total would then be eight representatives and four senators. Suoh a delegation should be able to secure
almost any reuscnabio concession from
the Dominion government. ,

BAKING POWDER
In describing   the water powers   of
the province, ono cannot but describe
what Nature has done,   nnd so be   'ed
away     by   h��i   Ktupendniisness    and
splendour.     What callous mortal   can
phicKiiiatically go and wi'.h   his theodolite  run   levels   to   ascertain   fall,
measure     breadth,     estimate   current
velocity, choose a bite   for   his works,
and  still shut liis eyes   and senses to
(he scenery around   him?     To   feebly
attempt to depict beauty,   and express
ln   empty   words   those   slghtB    that
silent and nnbidden   fill   the   soul   of
the gazer,   this is to   try to paint the
Illy      Yet how ate the  public, wrapt
np in business, and unsympathetic  to
NatQre, who see nothing of the vision
���how are thoy  to   picture   to   thcni-
sclvos  the value   of   Nature's   lavish
presents   to   us   here,  awaiting   only
tho hand of the utilitarian   to be harnessed   and   set   to   tuin   wheois  for
man's material wealth? All they have
to depend upon   is the   description   of
tho traveller.   Macaulay immortalised
the  Tiber   chafing under the obstruction of the   Koman   bridge,   Campbell
lias told us of "Isar flowing rapidly."
���vould that some poet could   arise and
depict  the   Eraser, Kootenay, Columbia, or one of our many rivers   in trie
wild triumph   of   their   -nighty   rush
towards the ocean.    We have   to   imagine   endless   ranges of  mountains,
spur on spur, with their   n^verehang-
ing grev���so different to   Scotland   or
Norway���fiee   from   vast   forests   uf
coniferous trees,down whicli the snow
water goes leaping over   thousands  of
feet of rocky   beds, insinucu* couises,
to feed the   lochs   and   rivers   at   tin.'
mountain's feet.    These looliB   act   as
reservoirs to keep a constant lupply in
their chilly depths to fill the countless
rivers all toaring and   booming   alike
past fall,   canyon, and vapid, iu their
ceaseless race to tin l'ucifio Ocean.
Tnko a few examples,   as the Krasei
and its many tributaries.     This great
river risos iu   the   Rocky   Mountains,
makes loops of hundreds of   miles  in
longth, because  some   rock formation
hus resisted its   wearing   action,   and
has driven it along a stratum of softer
mould,   then   traverses   the   province
across its centre,   and   with  irresistible energy at last forces itself through
ia uiuiinuin range above   Yale with its
"Hell's date,"   a   toiling, worrying,
��� seething,   boiling   caldron,   and    so
speeds to the groat water.     At   Spusi*
zum, where the   Royal   Rinrineere   in
the sixties, spanned   this river with a
suspension   bridge   to form a   road to
Cariboo, the stream, in 18114, rose   14,
feet, the volume of water   being  held
buck by the canyon. Look at the rieath
Rapids on   tho Columbia   in   the   Hig
Bend   above   Eevolstoke,     a     bloodcurdling sight when the   thought of a
boat appioaching crosses the mind ; at
the Illecillewae*.   river, by   the Albert
Canyon,|where tho river looks a   mere
ribbon hundreds  of feet below; at. tbe
Kootenay river, between   Nelson   and
Robson, when it leaves the lake,   and
beforo it   joins   the   Columbia.      See
hero     the   vast   rush of  water    over
rapids, over the Bonnington and other
fulls, throwing the   spray   high   into
the air, playing at rainbows with thc
sun, on through the canons   at Slocan
Junction   into   the   pool,   where   the
water risos in   mounds   JO   feet   high
with     an   unceasing     boom..     Such
pictures may be   multiplied   endlessly
from   the   Peace,    Findlav,   1'aisnip,
Thompson,   Similakmeon,   Tulameen,
Kettle,   Boundary,     Nans,     Stikine,
Skeena, Bella Coola,   Squamish, Pitt,
Stave   and   numberless   other   rivers.
That British   Columbia   must   have a
network ot waterways ia obvious from '
Its sea of mountains and the necessity
for   tho   melting   snow   to get  away
somehow.     Ali this water power now
lieu at the disposal of man.
What are the uses and manufactures
to which water   power   is   especially
adaptable?     Chietly to  generate electricity and to  convey   this   scores  of
miles, to work the mines,by pumping,
hoisting, cutting timber, moving   the
oro, coal cutting, working machinery
to crush and   concentrate, driving air
compressors to   work   machine   drills
and generate   blast   to   tbe   different
smelting   furnaces,   to   refine   copper
with   electricity,    to  produce   almui
nlum,   calcium-carbide   for    notylene
gas, to make wood pulp for the manufacture of paper, and for   a   thousand
nsee where  motive power is required.
Tho utilitarian   is here  already.     At
Bonnington Falls Ml,ooo horsepower is
' being   installed   out   of    a   possible
200,000.     The   Kootenay   River   falls
180 feet in 25 mihB from Nelson dov<n
stream.        This   installation   cap   be
duplicated     again   and    again,   till
Niagara, in its solitary grandeur  and
powei-giving   capacity,   is   dwarfed.
By forcing a high   voltage   of   _0.00n
through   the   wire   the    Bonnington
Falls supply the   Rossland   mines, 70
Wiles  away,   with   electrical   power,
and also run the streets  tramways  in
Nelson, 11 miles away. On the Kettle
river, again, at Cascade, another company is at present installing electrical

the Boundary country. On the North

year by year the outer world begins
to hear of our treasures, and comes to

What is the cost of installing power
and maintaining it as electricity?
Circumstances alter costs, but as a
very elastic basis say the cost of installation is ��40 per horse-power, and
the cost of maintenance and sinking
fund is ��4 10s. per horse-power per
annum Compare this with fuel to
maintain one horse-power per annum
with repairs, labor and sinking fund,
and tne valne of wat.r power against
all other motive power is self-evident.

When seen by your correspondent
Mr. Mi'Ilougall said that he visited his

ono who has visited the exhibition no

Mr. McDongull'fi principal mission,

accounts He had a letter of introduction from the Governor-General to
tho colonial oltlce, and waB there

tho information he desired. lie spent

However, Mr. McDougall is of the
opinion that while there are some
things that Canada might adopt in its
audit office from the British system
there are other things, which it
would be to tho advantage of llritain
to tuke from us. The oredit system in
Canada was superior to the British.

A large number of passengers fiom

International yesterday, on their way
to tbe Spokane Fair.
| A little girl named Guss was yesterday removed from a house on the land
back of East Haker street to the detention hospital, suffering from scarlet
fever.
Although there is little snow visible
from Nelson, passengers on the
steamers yesterday reported that the
mountains all along the main lake
wero white with it.
The steamer Kaslo will   be   put   on
tlie run   between   Nelscn   and   Kaslo
eommencing   either   today   or tomor
row,    taking   the   plaoe   ofthelntfr
national for the balance of the season,
The Kokanee took up a carload of
case liquors to Kaslo yesterday,
among which was a large quantity of
champagne. Evidently the citizens of
Kaslo think that tbe smelter is a sure
thing.
As an evidence of the growing importance of Nelson as an outfitting
point for tourists the fact that one
city firm alone sold ovei $::,000 of fish
ing tackle during the present season
is interesting.
The sewer to the new brewery on
Hall Mines road is nearly completed
The work was of exceptional difficulty
as the pipe had to be sunk over
twelve feet, and a ledge of rock was
enconteren at one point.
The members uf the Masonic order
in Nelson are having the large plot
at the cemetery belonging to the
Masons put in first class order. It
haa been levelled and rolled and will
soon be the prettiest spot in the
cemetery.
Plans and specifications are now
being drawn up by City Engineer
McCulloch for the new city wharf,
anil as soon as they are completed
tenders will bo culled for the construction,which it is intended to have
put through as quickly as possible.
A boy aged lr, years was brought up
before Magistrate Crease ye.itJtday
ehaiged with the use of profane laigu
age on the street. The charge was
established but on a promise of better
behavior from the culprit he was
allowed to go, his mother who was
present at the trial giving a bond of
81(H) thai tbe offence would not be
repeated.
A large audience of ladies listened
o tbe lecture given by Dr, Agnes
Haviland at Fraternity hall yesterday
afternoon, lhe doctor is a fluent and
rapid speaker and handled her sub-
jaot well. IJpr lectures are given
under the auspices bf the Viavi coin
pany, and she was introduced by Miss
It. V. Hall, the manager for Hritish
0 ilumbia. Tbe dootor claims that
them are but few well women and
that the cause is ignorance conoem
ing the anatonmy of the body and the
laws of nature by which it is govern
ed. She deplores surgery ns practiced
indiscriminately upon thc tender
bodies of women and Mates that the
treatment she advocates is both humane and successful, The doctor
considers the marriage of unhealthy
v. imon little short of a crime on
account of tbe effect upon future
generations.

Something About a Holder   of Slocan
Mining Properties.
The following about one of thc
largest shareholders in King Solomon
(roup of claims at the mouth of
Woodbury cieek, between Ainsworth
and Kaslo, shows how precious little
someone on the Minneapolis Tribuue
knows about mining:
There in a fascination in gold mining, or anv other kind of mining for
that matter that few "thor occupations possess. Prospectoi9 never tire
of the pursuit, it is suid, of minerul-
taden rock, and a man who hns a
piece of mineral land will cling to
the hope of its bidden ��ealth long
after he has evidence that the prospect is a failure. Then ho transfers
his hopes to another one.
To some men it is bread and butter;
to some pleasure first and the hope of
gain second.
Minneapolis has many men inter*
ested in mines from Alaska to New
Mexioo. The interest in mines with
a majority of tbem is a serious proposition With one Minneapolitan, however, it is as much of a pastime as anything else and his prospects are probably brighter than a hundred men
whose financial success in life depends
ou their mining luck. That gentleman is Elias Fitterling.
Mr. Fitterling is a pioneer of Minneapolis. He has lived here 47 years.
In earlier days he wns interested in
lumbering, contracting and building.
He was successful, and at piesent
time in life Mr. Fitterling has all the
earthly possessions that be ordinarily
might be expected to have any use for.
Well, he owns tbe property on Nicollet avene on which the building occupied by Tbe New Store stands, and
if tbat were all be could be classed as
wealthy. H'U that isn't all, so that
there is no particular reason why Mr.
Fitterling should bother with mining
property, especiallly property located
ten miles from tbe shores of Lake
Kootenav in Biitish Columbiu.
A few years ago Mr. Fittering became interested in the gold discoveries
>n the Kootenay mining country. He
made a trip to that country, secured
some prospects and still has them.
Two or three times a year he makes a
trip to that district, climbs over the
mountains, spends some time on his
property and returns to Minneapolis.
He does it because he finds pleasure
in it. Mr. Fitterling has recently
returned from one of his trips, but
will go back to Kaslo, B. C, late
this tall. His properties are rich in
gold-bearing quaitss and are adding
to his waaltb. He has built one concentrator and its pioduct is taken to a
smelter, where the yellow stuff is
forced from the condensed rock.

A  PRO   ITABLEINVESTMENT.
PLACE   l-^CENTIIALLV   LOCATED
AND HAS MANY ADVANTAGES.
ON ST. THOMAS MOUNTAIN.
A group of four St. Thomas mountain claims has just been bonded to
E. W. Thomas, a Philadelphia mining
man, the bond being of the working
order and the consideration named
being .11,0(1(1 payable in one year
from date.
The group, which adjoins the well
known Cascade property consists of
the Bonanza No. 2, B. C. Star, See-
Me-Hoiue, and New Bonanza claims,
owned by Steve Brailu, and Steve Bar-
bora, is a veiy promising one and is
one of the oldest iu that part of the
oo'intry,having been located in 1898.
Under the terms of tho bond work
is to be commenced at once and continued until 200 feet uf development
bas been done, and it is confidently
expected that the present good showing on the properties will be so increased by tho deveiopmeut that the
bond will certainly be taken up.

Among the townsite schemes recently projected there are none more
meritorious than Carnegie. Mr. John
Meiklejobn of Greenwood, a gentleman of energy and enterprise is the
projector of tbe enterprise and as his
name is synonomous with success it
is certain that Carnegie will come
rapidly to the front. The syndicate
wnich is being formed purposes acquiring a tract of laud close to the
chain of lake at the headwaters of
Twenty and Sixteen Mile creeks in
the Osoyoos mining division of Yale
district. Three hundred and twenty
acres have beeu applied for. The proceedings taken up to the present are
in full accordance wilh the Land Act,
but a survey of the ground is immediately . required in order that a plan
may be sent to tbe Chief Commissioner
of liiiiuls and Works and it is to de-
fray the cost of the survey and to meet
the government prices of land, together with other incidental expenditure that the vendor is forming the
syndicate. The oapital is 86,000
divided into 00 shares of 8100 each
and 3U shares are offered at present
for subscription. A number of Boundary men have already taken shares.
It is almost superfluous to point out
the large profits which are within
leach of the syndicate, but as a mere
matter of calculation, take a conservative estimate of eight lots to the
acre this would allow tor streets and
alleys, at say, $100 per lot; this would
mean 320 acres by eight, by .100 giving 8-150,100; substracticg 25 per cent
for government lots leaves 804,000, tbe
assets of the syndicate would show a
value of 8192,000. This calculation
does not take into consideration tho
high premium on lots whioh is likely
to ensure with the growth of the
townsite's importance and its surroundings.
The site is conveniently and centrally situatod in one of the very best
und richest portions of what is commonly known as the Similkainocn.
Within a radius of four miles there is
the now famous Camp Hedley, which
embraces the property whish the
Nickle Plate ownors are developing,
Riordon mountain, which has large
deposits of copper sulphide ore, Red
Mountain, the principal pait of which
is owned and worked by a New York
syndicate known as the Keremeos
Copper Co., Pearson mountain (sometimes called Independence mountain,)
which has many largo and wonderful
showings of various kinds, Apex Summit, where any amount of woik has
been done with satisfactory results,
Summit Camp or Yunnnan's, where
there are a nomher of important
claims, some of which are noted for
their deposits of magnetite carrying
coarse free gold, and it is in this
camp that Mr. Bullock-Webster is
representing English capital in development work.
There is no doubt loft in the minds
of any person who has investigated
the value of tho ore and the size of
the ore bodies as to the immense mineral wealth thoy demonstrate to
possess and all have cnlidoutl*, stated
that this locality has a future which
is second to none in the entire province. Mr. Robertson, the Piovincial
mineralogist, is among one of the
many who havo examined this section
of the country and left it with an
enthusiastic opinion of its capabilities
aod scope.
The lakos in thc vicinity have
abundance of water to supply,if necessary, a population of 500,000 people.
Any of the adjacent mining camps can
be easily and comfortably reached
without a disagreeable climb; this is
a favorable feature which is not thc
general case with townsitos In this
country. A well built wagon road,
connecting tbe Nickle Plate mines
with Pentioton, passes within a few
yards of the northern boundary of the
site and being in such a central position, the various trails to tbo surrounding mines concentrate here.
A Dominion charter has been granted to build a railroad from tho Nickle
Plato mines to Peiiticton. This charter
was applied for and granted to persons who have had overy opportunity
of judging for themselves tho enormous freight that will be handled in
the near future and their application
was made so tbat thoy could use the
charter to be used for a practical end
and not (or  hawking purposes.
All applications should be addressed
to John Meikejohn, P. O. Greenwood,
B.C., and accompanied by a chequo or
a Postofiice order for the number of
aharcs required.
