Took Chinese Medicefrie.
Chinese medicine is- a constant
source of wondeiment to the
druggists and a case in point-
came under the observation of
a local apothecary A Chinaman
had a severe attack of la grippe
and went to a man among his
countrymen who was supposed to
be learned in the.irt of healing
the ills which flesh is heir to. He
gave him a ball of "medicine"
and told him tojsfciveoff as much
as would cover a dime and to mix
it with Water a'nd take it three
tiiiies a day. Tiie "medicine"
had the effect of making him
more ill instead < i curing him.
As he was very ill he consulted a
well known local druggist, who
asked him what the Chinese man
of medicine had prescribed for
him. The Chinaman handed him
the ball and an er ami nation dia-
closetl thai it wcti'tt fefitutfiMiair
from the stomach of a cow. Hair
is indigestable even in the stomach of a bovine and it collects in
a ball there, and is only extracted
after death. The presumption is
that the Chinese "medicine man"
procured this particular ball from
the slaughter house of P. Burns
& Co. By cutting off portions of
it and taking it in water the
stomach of the patient was filled
with a laige number of small
sections of hair, which must of
necessity irritated the walls of
the stomach. The wonder is that

called medicine is alive.���Rossland Miner.

(By C, F. Morison.)
Part II.
I passed my first night in camp
with Joseph Trutch and Edgar
Dewdney, both of whom were
afterwards lieutenant-governors
of this fair province; and here in
this camp I ate my first meal of
that ambrosial food, bacon and
beans; but perhaps being a little
too worldly minded, I speedily
gave it up again to the intense
amusement of my companions
and my own discomfort.
BOSTON BAR.
Next morning I proceeded on
my pilgrimage towards Boston
Bar, having the previous day
crossed the Fraser by a rope
ferry, where afterwards the
Alexander suspension bridge waS
built. The section of the road
between Chapman's Bar and Boston Bar, about twelve miles, was
very rough and hard, large portions of it blasted out of the solid
rock. The scenery here was absolutely grand, the trail winding
round almost perpendicular
bluffs, with the Fraser winding
and boiling on its way to the sea
hundreds of feet below. 1 passed
a night at Boston Bar, a small
mining village, I imagine now'
deserted.
Next day 1 arrive] on my Work'
ing ground, the contract 35 :..*iles
from Boston Bar to Lytton City;*
built by that best oi friends and
bosses, the late Tom Spence. It
It was a remarkable fact that the'
construction of this stupendous
work was carried out by men
who, with the exception of
Trutch, were not engineers at all,
but carried their work through
with the help of those great
teachers: experience in the rough
and good horse sense. My boss
was a baker by trade, and his
foreman, a Yorkshire man, Geo.
Pelton by name, was an old California miner and a most splendid
fellow.
. On this part of the road lay
the celebrated Jackass Moun-
tian, which I have no doubt at
least two old pioneers now residing in Hazelton will remember
well. Oh ! the weariness of toiling up that almost Jacob's ladder
of a trail and down the other
side; for pack animals it was
something awful. The road was
built around the side of it���mostly
crib work and blasting���at a
height of fully 1000 feet above
the Fraser. It broke the man,
McClennan, who took the sub-,
contract, which I had the labor of
writing out, for $20,000.00.
After completion this was a delightful drive in the stage behind
six half-broken horses, round
sharp curves, with the boiling
torrent below; but under the expert driving of Steve Tingley one
was as safe as in a church.
LYTTON CITY.
Lytton City consisted of a dozen houses, and wind���always'
wind in Lytton. Lytton was a
busy place in 1862. The hotel
was kept by Mons. Hautier.
There was a large store owned by
the Oppeheimers, and another by
DeNouvian, a partner on the contract, together with a Hanoverian
gentleman, George Landvoigt'

CONFLICTING SURVEYS.
There is a tangle in kh.d*.matters in the Bulkley Valley that,
like the long deferred creditor,
will have to be faced, and disposed of by the Provincial Government at some time.
The principal difficulties come
from the conflicting surveys in
the nine townships numbered
from 1 to 9, and which were first-
surveyed several years ago by a
surveyor named Poudrier, and by
which name the survey now
goes. Being found faulty and in
some cases the lines not being run
out, J. H. Gray, P.L.S., was sent
to remedy the trouble. The way
he remedied it was to make a
new survey of the whole tract
without much regard to the previous survey,
This ("ray survey brought
about changes in almost every
section line, resulting in the moving of almost every pre-emptbr
who had a location in the district
involved. In some cases the lines
are moved a few feet and in
others the difference between the
old and new surveys amounts to
several hundred feet.
Those who had* located under
the old survey naturally resisted
the idea of having their farms in
one place and the land to which
they were eventually to hold title
to jn another; or as one of the
ranchers expresses it, ' 'owning a
portable ranch." 'There are a
number of ranchers who filed
undor* the Poudrier survey who
cannot in the"namjS��Qfjustice be
compelled to give the best part of
their ranches to conform to a
subsequent survey. On the other
hand are those who have filed'
under the Gray survey who would
be 'equally injured should there
be a reversion to the previous
survey.
Without going -into the subject
in detail and taking'up each separate case, the conflicting surveys have resulted in such a
bangle that neither Survey can be
finally adopted without working
a hardship ot) a nurhber of deserving men, who, with the best
intentions, filed on a piece of
land ai il whowantthe same land
they filed on.
Before a land office was estab-
liseed at Hazelton mistakes occurred and since then, September, 1907, other mistakes have
een made which have tended to
! still further confuse the situation.
Conflicting titles arising through
the application of Couth African
war scrip, purchase of land from
the Government and pre-emption,.
are numerous throughout tne
settled portion of the Omineca
district. Some people would lay
the whole blame for the matter
on the Provincial Government;
some would make John Flewin,
former agent at Port Simpson,
the scape goat, while others want
to saw off the whole responsibility   on   the   local   Government
Agent, F. W. Valieau.
Without entering upon a defence of Mr. Valieau, it might be
said that he cannot be blamed for
things that happened befop he
took office, nor is he at fault that
the necessary records were not
furnished him foft-.about eleven
months after he was installed at
Hazelton.
Mistakes, like accidents, are
bound to happen in government
affairs'as well as in private, and
.cussing the Government and its
officials at this stage of the game
is not going to help matters
much. There are 1 wo ways out
of the diffic ilty: Let things drift
along ,unti] the courts are asked
to take a hand in 'the matter, or
have Royal Commission appoint "1 with full p were to settle
all disputed over Jand matters, on
,       .       ���    that 1, At     c<     i       'ri'j   ���'
a basis of-v; ifyj Such a Commission was asked for some
months ago by the Conservative
Associations of this district and
recommended to the Government
by the local agent.
If-these matters in dispute are
allowed to go to the courts it will
be a ease of ' 'heads, the rancher
loses, tails, he is broke.'"
A Chinaman invited to write an
editorial for the Charleston News
and Courier delivered himself of
a warning to the United. States
against Japan, which, he says, is
preparing to take the Philippines
away from the United States.
His expression of opinion islnter-
esting, not so much because it
enlightens the United States concerning the, possible-, attitude of
Japan towards the United States,
but because it shows that the
average Chinese mind harbors a
great distrust of the Japanese,
which probably is not wholly uncalled for.--Rossland Miner.

Charles -Kpence, DeNouvian and
Landvoigt are all gone; they were
good fellows and always treated
me with the greatest kindness,
and their memory is always green
to me.
Captain Ball was magistrate at
this place, with that fine fellow
Fitzgerald as "constable, who Was
afterwards gold commissioner in
the Omineca, and who laid his
bones there.
I spent the summer on the road
looking after stores, etc. It was
while employed in this work that
I had the honor of an introduction
to that prince among men, Sir
James Douglas, the best gover-
nor this province ever had���a
thorough gentleman and a most
courteous one. He had a most
difficult work to perform in the
colony- -a great gold rush of all
sorts and conditions of men to
be dealt with, the great wagon
road to build, an official staff to
form, and numberless other
tilings to be done���with little or
no money to/lo it with. To my
c< rtain knowledge he offered to
pledge all his own personal property for a loan of $450,000 from
England. Needless to say he got
the loan at once without the Imperial Government exacting the
pledge.
I also saw that terror to evildoers, the never-to-be-forgotten
late Chief Justice Begbie, going
up country on circuit, swinging
alongthe road in his shirtsleeves
and tiinging at the top of his
splendid bass voice; also the Rev.
John Sheepshanks, now Bishop of
Norwich, England, on his usual
mission tup to Cariboo.   Re WuS
a very fine man and renowned for
his keen appetite; on this point I
may refer my readers to James
H. May of Hazelton.
I witnessed many accidents to
pack animals on the mule trail,
one of which had a comical side to
it. A mule fell over a high bank
into the Fraser; on his descent
the diamqnd hitch gave way and
his pack, consisting of baskets of
champagne, was scattered ai ound
in charming confusion. We
thought the mule would certainly
be killed, but after bumping over
rocks and logs, into the river he
went, undergoing total immersion, he swam ashore sound in
mind and body. Some part of
his pack was destroyed; what was
ieft the owner sold to our camp
for a mere song; so behold us at
6 p. Ol., feasting on bacon and
beans washed down with "Napoleon Cabinet" out of tin pannikins. Alas for McAliscer and the
Four Hundred !
through hell's gate,
Afler the contract was finished
from Boston Bar to Lytton I was
moved nearer to Yale onto a con-
contract Spence & Trutch had
taken between Sailors' Bar and
Chapman's Bar. To get there a
party, consisting of six young
Australians, Trueworthy (captain), a colored number one bowman, Timothy, cur small but great
cook, and the writer, were advised to take boat down the river,
which we did, running through
the canyon of the Fraser. It was
a grand sight, but calculated to
turn your hair white; the Skeena
is "not in it." The passage
through Hell's Gate was perfectly awe-inspiring.   At this point
the  river   is   verv   narrow   With     Take notlesthat N-dlto Blomstwwn, ot Denver

his hand we were to lay into it.
We approached nearer and nearer
to the rapid, the noise, increasing
to a deafening roar; up went the
hand, and pulling with all our
might we flashed past the rock
and floated into calmer water,
feeling rather proud of ourselves.
It was intensely exciting while it
lasted. A boat following us two
days later, through some mistake
in steering, ran on the center
rock and split in two. Allot' her
crew, seven in number, perished.
A few miles below we passed
under a bluff where blasting operations were being, carried on.
They had just lighted the fuse
and yelled to us to pull for our
lives, which we most certainly
did. Bang! went the blast, and a
huge piece of rock weighing at
least five hundred pounds fell into
the Water just by the steering
oar; a little closer and the writer
with his chums would now be reposing at the bottom of the Fraser
���how much we have to be thankful for!
We arrived at Sailors' Bar late
in the evening, and after making
camp and eatingSupper we were
only too glad to turn in. Good
night, gentle reader, good night.

Charles Spence, DeNouvian and
Lsmdvoigt are all gone; they were
good fellows and always treated
me with the greatest kindness,
and their memory is always green
to me.
Captain Uall was magistrate at
this place, with that fine fellow
Fitzgerald as constable, who was
afterwards gold commissioner in
the Omineca, and who laid his
hones there.
I spent the summer on the road
looking after stores, etc. It was
while employed in this work that
I had the honor of an introduction
to that prince among men, Sir
James Douglas, the best gover-
nor this province ever had���a
thorough gentleman and a most
courteous one. He had a most
difficult work to perform in the
colony���a great gold rush of all
sorts and conditions of men to
be dealt with, the great wagon
road to build, an official staff to
form, and numberless other
tilings to be done���with little or
no money to/Jo it with. To my
(j. rtain knowledge he offered to
pledge all his own personal property for a loan of $450,000 from
England. Needless to say he got
tbe loan at once without the Imperial Government exacting the
pledge.
I also saw that terror to evildoers, the never-to-be-forgotten
late Chief Justice Begbie, going
up country on circuit, swinging
along the road in his shirtsleeves
and flinging at the top of his
splendid bass voice; also the Rev.
John Sheepshanks, now Bishop of
Norwich, England, en his usual
mission trip to Cariboo.   Ke WuS
a very fine man and renowned for
his keen appetite; on this point I
may refer my readers to James
H. May of Hazelton.
I witnessed many accidents to
pack animals on the mule trail,
one of which had a comical side to
it. A mule fell oyer a high bank
into the Fraser; on his descent
the diamond hitch gave way and
his pack, consisting of baskets of
champagne, was scattered ai ound
in charming confusion. We
thought the mule would certainly
be killed, but after bumping over
rocks and logs, into the river he
went, undergoing total immersion, he swam ashore sound in
mind and body. Some part of
his pack was destroyed; what was
left tho owner sold to our camp
for a mere song; so behold us at
6 p. m., feasting on bacon and
beans washed down with "Napoleon Cabinet" out of tin pannikins. Alas for McAliscer and the

After ithie contract was finished
from Boston Bar to Lytton I was
moved nearer to Yale onto a con-
contract
his hand we were to lay into it.
We approached nearer and nearer
to the rapid, the noise increasing
to a deafening roar; up went the
hand, and pulling with all our
might we flashed past the rock
and' floated into calmer water,
feeling rather proud of ourselves.
It was intensely exciting while it
lasted. A boat following us two
days later, through some mistake
in steering, ran on the center
rock and split in two. All of her j |
crew, seven in number, perished.
A few miles below we passed
under a bluff where blasting operations were being, carried on.
They had just lighted the fuse
and yelled to us ito pull for our
lives, which we most certainly
did. Bang! went the blast, and a
huge piece of rock weighing at
least five hundred pounds fell jnto
the Water just by the steering
oar; a little closer and the writer
with his churns would now be reposing at the bottom of the Fraser
���how much we have to be thankful for!
We arrived at Sailors' Bar late
in the evening, 'ind after making

party, consisting of six young
Australians, True worthy (captain), a colored number one bowman, Timothy, our small but great
cook, and the writer, were advised to take boat down the river,
which we did, running through
the canyon of the Fraser. It was
a grand sight, but calculated to
turn your hair white; the Skeena
is "not in it." The passage
