It will not he noeoss-ary to wait

under which Bostland, Nelson ami

li<utetmnt*governor, in council, in
oinpowsreC to grant Incorporstion
'" anv town making applkaUon for
ii U'foiY September 1.
The geneim) tenor of the inter-
view* tfiven below but briefly ex-
presg the reaaom. for nml Sgainst in-
-���orporatton, ami it may Ir expected
that these gentlemen will express
themselves more fully ��t the meet-
ing called for Monday- evening. One
gentleman will trpeak at length on
the nec<-s*ity of improving Keco .iv.*-
nue, bv forcing 9vm of thc build*
ings back to the proper building
line, and bv grading tne street and
putting In sidewalks that will do
away with the pret*ent ate** and hen
ladders. Then it i* proposed that a
new channel for Sandon creek shall
DO made, and the creek bv crib work
confined to that channel instead of
being permitted to meander at will
all over the townsite. In this connection Will come iu the iple-ttion of
a sewerage system, and something
tleeideilly unplea**aut will, no doubt,
be said ofthe condition of the back
yard*, of most of tbe buildings.
On the other hand, the minority
will exmvKs its ft-ar* of an increased
ex|veuditure and heavier taxation if
Sandon is made a municipality, and
���will U* met with jfcbe very general
opinion that those who pay the taxes
should have the right to say how
the money must be exi*end'*d. Others will argue that the town is not
sufficiently advanced for such a step,
and to combat this thc case of
I'ntoiuown on Vancouver inland,
may be cited. That has a {Kiputa*
tion of but St'lO, and yet i*. incoriH*r-
attsti. The imputation of Sandon Is
altont -'*!) and i* growing rapidly.
Also, Handon has already a respectable income, ail of which tiow

For u Beautiful Boulevard From
Sandon to Silverton.
Now that New Denver has subscribed -52500 for the Sandon, Three
Forks and New Denver road, over
tf2O0O of which has already been
placed in the bank, renewed interest is felt iu the matter in Sandon.
A subscription list was started, P.
Burns siffnin-f for -1250, Henry (.ie-
gerich for &00, Bruce White for
1300, and a number of enter prising
citizens for smaller sums. Nearly
$1000 was raised, when James Mc-
Donald, who has the matter in hand,
was called away from the city. No
canvass has yet*been made in Three
Forks, but as the road is really of
greater consequence to her than to
either of the other towns, there is no
doubt a liberal subscription will be
made. Several leading1 citizens have
already expressed this opinion.
These subscriptions, with the
amount appropriated by the government for the purpose,'^3300,' which
is now in the bank at New Denver,
will build one of the finest wajron
roads in the country, and Silverton
will next be called upon to assist in
improving the sleigh road from New
Denver into a first class wagon road.
When thus improved we shall have
one ofthe finest drives in the Kootenay���or in any country where thc
difficulties of road building ait* similar, and each of the places mentioned will be largely benefitted by
thc increased travel. It is also believed that it will lead many mine
owners and engineers to make permanent homes on Slocan lake, especially those with families, on account of the healthfulness of the
neighborhood and its social features.

O. F. Wegener was in Sandon
this week and left the following card
in The Paystreak office:
Whan, is Jack Qnincy, tha minim pro*,
peetor?
Quincy la wanted a* a witness to save the
life of an innocent man wbo is to he han**d
in Seattle, Wash., in a few weeks unless Jack
<Vuiiuy can Im found quickly.
(juincy worked in the old Cariboo district
up to April, Mat, then left for Rowland, and ia
now prospect inn somewhere in the Kootenay
country.
Any information given abont fjiilnrv'*
whereabout* since lftal will lie an act of humanity to a poor, innocent man and his unfortunate family. It will only cost oue cent
to send postal cant with information to

P. O. Box t*M, Rowland. B C.
The condemned man is Henry
Craemer, who was convicted of murdering a woman and oiie child for
the purpose of robbery, in August,
1K'4. At thc time of the trial the
defense claimed that a missing witness, Jack t^uincv, could prove an
alisolute alibi. Mr.Wegener At once
commenced the scare'i for Quincy
and has Iteen after iiim ever since.
He has traced him ini' West Kootenay, and found that... was in Trail
last November. Craemer was sentenced to hang o.i April 23, but a
stay of execution for throe months
was secured. An appeal to thc supreme court of the United Stab** was
taken recently, which will delay thc
execution until January or February.         ^_
W. E. Terrell ofthe Cody sawmill
denies the rumor that the mill has
changed hands. He has let a contract to Mr. Moore of Tacoma to cut
a million feet of lumber at the rati;

now situated to furnish any and all
kinds of lumber at any time.

How Quantrell Worked a Bluff When
Covered With a Rifle.
Current stories regarding the
career of Qoantrell, the noted guerilla, who hamtssed the Union soldiers,
have resulted in bringing to light the
fact that his most thrilling, and probably his meet narrow, escape from
death oegtured in Danville. Qoantrell ma-teUtt one excursion through
this part of Kentucky, bat it was a
bold dash and he left a trail of blood
behind him; more than one federal
soldier or sympathizer being found
with the Qoantrell mark -the bullet
hole in the forehead just between the
eyebrows. On the day of Qoantrells
close call he had arrived in Danville
from Hustonville, in Lincoln county
At Hustonville he had halted to lay
in a fresh stock of horseflesh, and
there some of his band bad murdered
a union officer. A woman wbo had
been in Hustonville preceded the
guerillas to Danville, and when
Qoantrell reached this city she recognized him and spoke to him, calling
him by name. Quantrell simply
smiled and said to her: ' Why, madam, you were never more mistaken
in your life.   I am Capt. of the
federal army.'1
Qoantrell and all his men were attired in federal uniforms, and were
jxxsing as federal scouts. They halted in Danville, and as federal soldiers were in the habit of passing in
and out of the town in small squads,
no particular attention was paid to
the guerillas until they bad been in
the town five or six hours. The
woman who bad accosted Qoantrell
upon his arrival believed that he had
deceived her, and she told a yoong
federal lieutenant, then in town,
what she thought about tlte men who
had arrived that morning. Qonan
trell and his men were going about
town pretty much as they pleased,
lounging around the hotels and saloons, feeling perfect security. The
lieutenant, from the description furnished by tbe woman, snd from what
he had heard of Qoantrell, was con
vinced that tbe fine-looking fellow
masquerading in federal clothing,
was none other than the guerrilla,
and determined to kill or capture
him.
The lieotenant procored a carbine
and started upon a hunt for his man.
He finally caught sight of him walking down the main street of the town.
Qoantrell was alone. He walked the
length of several squares down one
side of the street and started op the
other side, the lieotenant with the
carbine In his wake all the time,
waiting for an opportunity to corner
hia man. About the middle of the
main square Qoantrell entered a saloon, stepped to the bar, and called
for a drink.
Jost k% Qoantrell reached over tbe
bar railing to take op a glass, he
glanced into a big mirror against the
wall and noticed the federal lieotenant entering with the carbine ready
to tire. Qoantrell very coolly set the
glass down, turned about and faced
his pursuer. Tlie carbine had bv
this time been brought to the shoulder of the lieutenant, its raowic was
within three feet of the goerrillas
breast, and the eve which looked
down the shining barrel was keen
and cool. Qupntrell dared not make
a false move, and he was jowerlcss
to protect himself by force. His
heavy overcoat was buttoned up to
his chin, making the pistols buckled
at his waist useless. He gazed at
the lieutenant very complacently lor
a brief period, smiled, and said:
"How now, comrade; what are voo
going to do with that gun?"
���Shoot voo like a dog if y<*o move
a muscle,* was the reply.   "Yoo are
Qoantrell.   Yoo have played it for a
long time, but now you're my prison
er.   March into that room there."
Quantrell glanced to an open door
at tbe end ofthe bar, but didn't obey
the command. It was not his intention to do so. His nerve wss sor-erh,
and hia self txtssesaion complete.
''Ah, I see/ he remarked quietly.
������You take me for Quantrell, but yoo
wrong me, I assure too. My resemblance to that scoundrel has been
most provoking. Permit me to call
my orderly sargeant and I will show
you that I am as true to the union
aa yoo are. He has ail of my
papers."
The lieotenant looked surprised a��
well as somewhat tv infused, and
Quantrell noted his ilisromnture.
This was a signal tor tbe deception
to be redoubled, and so he continued:
"I have also heard t4oHt*aaboot the
guerrilla being in this section. To
my certain knowledge he is now in
Kentocky, and yoo are simply making a tool of yourself. Vol down your
gun, and as long as we are in the
same cause le* os be friends.*'
The lieutenant, completely nonplussed at Qoantrell a cool effrontery
and considerably abashf**l, told him
to call his orderly, but kept tbe car
bine ready to fire. On the street not
faraway Qoantrell saw some of his
men talking, and he called to one of
them to enter. The man went into
the saloon, and as soon as be saw his
chief covered with a carbine drew his
heavy revolver.
"Stop,'- shouted Quantrell. -'Not
so fast. Put np your pistol. Our
friend here has heard that I am
Quantrell. It's amusing. Show him
our papers from tbe secretary of wsr,
in order that his embarrasfucnt may
be ren��ved.B
"All right, captain/ was the reply,
as the man began feeling in an outside pocket for his pa iters, still hold
ing his revolver, however, in his
right hand. He approached the lieu
tenant as he started to withdraw his
hand from his coat, but instead of
bringing out tbe papers he suddenly,
with the qoickneas of a wildcat,
sprang upon the yoong federal, felted
bim to the floor and held him fast,
with the mozzfe of the revolver
against his head, as he cried:
"These are the jjapers yoo are look
Ing for.   We always have them on
hand for such as vou.   Must I give
bim the old mark, oaptain ?"
"Nojletthe gentleman up, "replied
nuan trell,
The lieotenant arose and was dis

**The most thrilling incident I ever
saw in a eourtroom," renitirked a
Western attorney the other oaf,
**a*as in Southern Kansas. Tlie senior lawyer*** the county was a distinguished-looking and courteoo* gentleman *of the old school.' who hat1 little
patience with the joking always
going on during court recesa. He
was exceedingly nearsighted, but
had a habit of laving his fflaasc* on
tbe table during his s'teeebea to the
jury. One day, as his back was
turned to the other lawyers, caeca"
them picked up the gtaaara, and with
a bit of mucilage (aatenet! to Ibe
lenses pieces of tissue r*��ja*r which
exactly covered tbe glass- not par*
Ocularly noticeable* but at the aaroe
tiiiu* i-reventing vision through them.
Bom the owner of the gtaaaea came
bark to thc table to examine mnne
Bipers for reference In his addresa
e put on the glaatea. looked at the
paper, adjot.tod them again-ami
then a pallor ovenu-mt-1 his face tbat
was pitiful to see.
" My iini, gentfomen, I am blind!
I ha vt- feared  it for vears!'he ex
claimed, antl drepjjied hb head on his
hands.
"For an instant tlw d-unnmm waa
boshed. Kvcn the practical foker
must have felt remorse at theevl
dent suffering of hb victim. IVforr
anyone coold tuvak or the sheriff trap
for order the attorney lifted hb hc-ad,
took off tbe glasses and he had hb
sight again. Hb face flushed as be
robbed the tissue paper from the
lenses and he stood up, an angry and
excited man.
"If I knew who did that dastardly
trick, if I knew wbo had l*f*t*oghtthat
minute of grief to me*' he broke oat,
I swear I would kill him.'   He left
the courtI'joiu  and  thc judge ad

MOUNTAINS  OF   ICE.
To thc average mind the territory
Is a small piece of land" with few outlying far to the north ani rosssssing
but few points of interest to any one
other than the trader eager to swap
brightly tinted calicoes for luxuriant
tors, the other in pursuit of the
phantom Fortane, the missionary
with an earnest zeal to save the savages, and the ubiquitous tourist who
considers tbe country as a place to be
viewed only from the deck of A
steamer. The latter class stand
aghast when informed that Alaska
comprises in area almost as much as
the entire United States east of the
Mississippi. With unmistakable incredulity tbey receive the statement
that there are mountain -peaks contained within our boundaries so high
andsomightv that other mountains
in the United States are as mere mole
hills in comparison, and when told
of our marvelous glaciers and vast
ice fields wonderment is no longer
concealed and they realize for the
first time the immensity of the
country which to so many is but as a
sealed volume.
Paragraphers are eveniond of referring to Alaska as the land of perpetual snow ai*?. Vc, sn imputation
the journals of the far north quickly
and righteously resent, for where
could more ideal weather be found
than the past winter in this portion ot
the territory. Yet there are sections
within our borders where the snow
and ice are perpetual and the synonymic appellation so often connected
with Alaska is peculiarly and truly
applicable. The largest glaciers,
the highest mountains, and the
broadest ice fields are never seen by
the average tourists, they being back
and beyond the beaten line of travel
and only reached by the most intrepid and indefatigable voyagers.
In the vast moraine of ice back of
and surrounding Mount St Elias the
State of Rhode Island could be
placed and would be Only as a fly
speck on a sheet of spotless paper, the
State of Doleware might be dropped
into a crevasse and its sides would
never be scratched in its descent to
the bottom. Visions ot glaciers as
seen from an excursion steamer are
confined to the Takou inlet and
Glacier bay. Soon after leaving
Wrangel tbe first mountain of ice is
seen in the distance looking like a
frozen river emerging from the
clouds. The sea is glassy and a procession of small bergs, broken away
from the glacier, floats silently towards the south. It is nature's dead
march to the sun, to be melted in its
burning kisses snd to lie transplanted
into happy tears. Wild ducks fly
past and from its eyrie a bald-headed
eagle surveys the scene, deeply,
darkly, beautifully blue, apparently
conscious that he is the symbol of the
republic.
At Glacier bay on the first sight of
Muir Glacier one draws comparisons
and mentally notes that these are
glaciers and glaciers. In Switzerland a glaeier is a vast bed of dirty,
air-holed ice that has fastened itself
like a porous plaster to the side of an
Alp, and distance alone lends enchantment to tho view. In Alaska a
glacier is a wonderful torrent that
seems to have been suddenly frozen
when about to plunge into the sea.
Down and atmut mountains wind
these snow clad serpents, extending
miles inland with as many arms fre
quently as an octopus. Wonderfully
picturesque is tho Davidson glacier,
but more extended is t_ltc one named
In honor of John Muir which marks
the extreme northerly point of the
route travelled by the excursion
steamers. Imagine a glacier three
miles wide and 300 leet high at its
mouth. Think or Niagara Falls
frozen stiff, add thirtv six feet to its
height, and you will have a slight
idea ofthe terminus of Muir Glacier,
in front of which your steamer anch
ors, picture a background of mountain IbXW feet high, all clad in a
mantlejof perpetual snow, and then
imagine a gorgeous sun lighting up
the ice crystals with all the hues ofa
multi colored rainbow, and you will
have a vision such as wtuld have tie-
lighted the soul of Raphael. The
face of the glacier takes on the color
of aquamarine, the tint of every particle of floating ice, big and little,
that surrounds the steamer, and sometimes profes such an iraiwdiment to
navigation. These glacier* are constantly moving and tumbling headlong into the sea, and as thc huge
masses fall thc ear is startled by sub
marine thunder, the echoes of which
resound far antl near. Down, down,
down, goes the berg, and wtm to the
boat in its way when it again rises to
the surface.
Far to the north of Glacier Bay,
some'J00 miles, He the monarch** of
a!! thc glaciers, of which it has been
said that the world offers no othei
such field for thc study of glacial
panorama. The extent and rapid
move and change of these vast seas
of ice are comparable in their immensity to nothing in any other part
ofthe globe. Their r*roportiona are
simply Brobdignagian, as the Muir
glacier is as nothing to them. Bell
ring's great glacier, behind Cane
Suckling, is f>erhsps the ntost extend
ed; the Agassiz and Guvotare likewise enormous, the whole system
forming a province of glacial ice
measuring hundreds of miles in
length, and thousands of square miles
in extent Indeed, it would be diftl
colt to estimate within 10,000 t**unrc
miles bow extensive they arc, but
with that proviso one might say the
whole of the St. Klias glaciers covers
not less than 40.000 square miles ol
ice of a thickness averaging M0 feet
and this in a latitude but little north
of England. This is exclusive of the
other ranges and refers only to the
country between thc Chilkat and
Copper rivers. The great Agassi*
Glacier Jsnow bel ieved to be the
Malaspina plateau ho named by the
Geodetic Coast Survey. It measures
GOO square miles and is to a certain
extent buried by the immense moraines which cover a fringe of its
coast line. The old navigators were
uncertain of the na .lire of the plateaus around Mount St. Elian, as Van
couver described the Agasslz glacier
as a ���'barren country, co,ii*x*k*<l of
loose stones." La Peroost, another
navigator of nearly a century ago,
spoke of it as consisting of "maifses ot
snow and ice covering a barren soil,
unembellished by a single tree *���

GRABBING IP CLAIMS.
Three Large Syndicates With a
Lightning System.
"Businessmethods' '���which moans
a combination of capital to grab
everything in sight���are coming into mining affairs with a rush.   A
California promoter started from San
Francisco some day*, ago with 150
old-time prospectors to make locations for a   wealthy syndicate all
over British Columbia.   By the time
snow flies the promoter hopes to have
staked off a goodly  share of the
province.    In  the * Lardo district
there are two of these syndicates
gobbling up the mineral lauds. One
of them has 35 prospectors in its employ, and carries  along a notary
public to make affidavits of location
and   send   them  to  be  recorded.
These aftidavitsare being sent to the
inining recorder  once  a week   in
Pitches of from 50 to 100.     Five
months work at this rate will stack
up a considerable number of claims.
The other syndicate, which is working on the sanb' ''business metlv>>ls"
in the same district, started in with
a smaller nuni'ver of prospector-*, but

Fire Valley Strikes.
A *jeven-foot vein, Igtwecn walls
of granite and slate, has been discovered in Fire valley, 25 miles up
the Kettle river, by* a iir<>spector
named Olds. The Silver Blend and
the Star, two projierties nearly op-
������osite Fire valley, on the east sine
of Lower Arrow' lake, are said to
have excellent showings. There are
nine other claims in the vicinity, on
three of which development work is
being done, and there is promise of
a prosperous mining camp in the
near future.	
Cariboo Greek Placer*.
A large tract on Cariboo creek,
West Kootenay, was located three
years ago as placer diggings, but
after some time the diggings were
ahandoned as unprofitable, and the
adjacent country has since developed into a quartz camp. Recently
a mile and a half of this same country has been leased from the government by a syndicate for placer
mining, and the washing for gold
will shortly be recommenced
large scale.
