To the editor of the Post-Intel I i
geneen���The plan of Arthur Jordan
of Sandon, B. C, wbo advertises to
mke a party of prospectors from
Ashcroft, B. a, to Klondike in sixty
days, has caused a good deal of bitter talk here nnd remarks to the effect that people should be warned
against uking the trip this fall. The
trail ts open and good moat of the
way from Quesnelle to Masleton, but
from Haamton to Telegraph creel
tbe old telegraph trail has been nn
used for pany years and is absolutely * impsssable for pack trains
untH thousands of dollars worth of *fd  nmterial  to  the men at work
to Noam Lake.
W. H. Annati-ong left with a par
ty for Movie lake last Wednesday,
sad will at once commence the construction ofa wagon road frnm that
point to tbe foot of Kootenay lake, a
distance of about 60 miles.   A force
of abont 300 men will be employed
and it is honed to have tbe road
coaipletedwathlB-tOdnjra. Tbe com
ptetion of this work will give n eon
tinuous nnd of easy grades from
Kootenay lake to McLeod to be need
Ibr the tiam_nortation of
along the line of
the Crow's Nest
this portion of the
supposed  that the
have the work done
die of next summer.
Now. as to living on thc country,
it is not nractkmble for a party to do
so, and it would be folly to attempt
the trip without ample supplies.
��ah nre plentiful, but game is
searee; from Ouesnelle north for 300
miles there b practically no game
along the trail, not even grouse or
trail. It is not possible for a large
party starting now without dogs to
^torongb to Klondike before next
August, and as a''quick and easy
route," it Is simply Idiotic to start
this fall. Parties intending to tak��
this route should start from Quesnelle not earlier than the latter
of May, as thegnmi will be too
for feed before thst time
Meet of this route is known to be>
tbrougfa a mineral eountry, and
there nre large areas of verv prom-
jaingec4Mj*��*ry to prospect. (H_tlneeai

SANDON. B.  C,   OCT. 16,  1897.
We have been given to understand
from a few scattered remarks which
have appeared from time to time in the
local press that the province of British
Colombia la desirous of attracting attention in the great markets of the
world in order to obtain capital and to
increase its population. It haa certain
valuable commodities to offer in exchange���at least we are told so���such
as minerals of different kinds, valuable
timber, extensive fisheries, and fruitful farming lands. The owners of tUis
natural wealth have in their wisdom
seen fit to offer their goods in Lonrfnr���
the greatest market in the world,
If a fruit-grower at Agassis has a tew
tons of idoifferent apples to dispose of,
wonld he send them to,sav, Baskervilie
or'Frisco? It is* we believe, usually
considered prudent when endeavoring
to obtain a looting in a new market in
which there ia keen competition to
send the best samples. Western enterprise, however, has proved the fallacy
of these old-world business maxim*1 we
presume, for the samples of Britisl Columbian mineral properties which have
been offered ia this market have in a
large number of cstaes been mere shoddy,
and among those few which have been
sold how many have been honestly
worth the money paid lor them? In
this mart, where the nations ofthe
World are clamoring to sell their warm,
sentiment has been permitted to in-
flu ce b i j 11 ��� ���. and our Colonies have
beeu favored sometimes undulv. The
confidence of the British investor was
rudelv shaken in regard to Westralia,
and this lesson has not been forgotten
British Columbia had nearly everything
in its favor when it came on the market;
favored it with great natural advantage*
as regards climate, water communica
tion, sixe aad extent of ore bodiea,timber
game, etc.; it had found favor in the
eves of shrewd American investors; and
the pu-rt-drstrings of Europe were inclin-
edto loosen.AJittle money was invested,
more or less tentativclv, and of the
results practically nothing is known.
Directors indulge in Utopian forecasts,
aa usual, but the public waits in vain
to ascertain facts. Whs* is being done
on these pt*t-*-pertie*��� are there no mine
managers? If there is no return on an
investment it is at least some satisfac
faction to i know how tbe monev has
been spent. Tbe (Government officials
have dona little or noth.ng to make
known the t*esourcee of their province,
and yet they hope to compete in this
/Treat market withesublishedgoldfield*
which spare no time or trouble in order
to give the public the most complete
and reliable information concerning
their progress. This selfish and shortsighted policy would almost lead one to
believe that those in whose hands the
fortunes of tbe province mainlv rest
have no belief in its future and are too
busy lining their "own pockets at the
expense or our ill-informed public.*-
London B: C. Review.
Charles E. Stanfieid,  the returned
Klondyker of Helena, Montana, says :
"The summers 'at Dawson are much
like those of Montana, and one wears
the same kind of clothes he would here.
The sttmmersare quite pleasant in the
town, bat In tbe diggings tbe mosquitoes make life a burden and one must
wear a frame covered with mosquito
netting over the head to enjoy anv
comfort at all. In the winter, which
���jets in about the middle of October, you
cannot dress too warm. Mackinaws
and heavy woolens are tbe beat kind of
winter clothes if one remains in camp,
but if vou travel you must have a
heavy robe to sleep in. Aaoodi-obeof
fox.lvux or wolf coats from 1180 to fWO
Horses are worth ��*�� and there are
onlv about 75 in Dawson. Dogs bring
from two to $150 and I have known
them to sell for ��t*). Moose tueat is
the onlv fresh meat thev get and* that
costs 7.*�� cents a pound. King salmon
brings 25 cents n pound aad nine head
of beef steers *Sat were brought in
while 1 wan there sold for I600D.
���The health of Dawson is good.
There had been but 12 deaths up to the
time I left, nine from natural esuses
and three bv accidents. Tbe town is
governed by 2s mounted police and a
gold commissioner. The latter settle*
all disputes of suy nature. He is a
veritable king, bus la a very iuat man
and no complaint of any kind baa ev, /
been made again** him. The order
that is maintained is perfect and
although even-thin-** is run wid*? open;
thev have yet to hive their first seritwjs
row- or shooting iwrsns. No unch thing
as a fight is ever seen although there is
whiskev enough mid. Tbey have a
prohibition law in tbe territories, but
tbe Dominion government seems to
want to be very lenient with the Americans, who constitute 75 per cent of
tbe population, and the law is not enforced. There is a dance house, a
variety show, five faro games, three
roulette," four stud poker and four etap
games always running In town. There
are any number of saloon* and drinks
over the bar cost 60 cents and cigars,
the best, TO cant*. Ch-uapsupa sella tor
an ounce of gold a bottle, aad gold
there goes for 117.    -
"The Government does not discriminate against Americana sad in favor
of Canadians, aa I have heard tdnce I
returned, nor do they tax miner* unjustly for their outfits who come into
the country. I don't know what thev
have done"since, but up to August 20th
the government had never charged the
10 per cent royalty that hi being talked
about so much.
���'Of the 5000 people In llawson, ton
are women, 78 of whom are ofthe
sporting class. The trading of the
town is all done by two coiapaniea, but
there will be more business houses in
tbe spring.
'���With regard to tbe coming winter
there, I believe there will be a great
amount of suffering. Hundreds of people are going in and not one in ten is
properly equipped for the winter, besides I believe It will be absolutely impossible for the transportation companies to take enough provisions to cuppiv
those who were already there when the
rush started and those who go without
their own supplies. I cannot see how
there can fail to be _*reat suffering and
deprivation. I believe, though, that
the government will send out all who
have noi provisions. If thev don't,
some of them will go hungry.' It mat-
be that tbe Buffering from want of proper housing may be obviated bv sending those who get in too late to build
cabins to Circle City for the winter
That place lias been deserted and there
are plenty of good cabins there that
could be used. If they don't do that I
don't know what will become of the 2fr��
people who are now on the wav up the
river on the steamer Hamilton who will
not reach Dawson till too late to mi-
pare for winter, and those who follow.
"I do not feel that 1 would be doing
mv duty if I did not state that there
will not be work enough far more than
-xJOtlor 4000 men In the diggings next
year, and there are that manv there
now, or will be before the winter is over
who will want to work, for the Dvea
trail will lie kept open ait winter and
nien will be going in all the time.. No
man should start for the Klondike,
therefore, looking for work, and no
man should go without he has a vear's
provisions and means to get them in.
It taken junt about S700 tobiiy supplies
- for a year and get them there/'
