Harrowing  Tale of Cholera  in
San Francisco Examiner.
Causes Excitement on the Outside
and the Sending of Menu
Inquiring Telegrams.
Last Saturday a number of telegrams  were  received   by different
citizens of Sandon   from points all
over Canada and the United States,
asking about the  cholera and anxiously inquiring if friends  were all
right,   r or three tlays it remained a
mystery  how  the   outside   public
could have got the erroneous impression that there   was cholera in Sandon, or anything else to cans.* alarm.
But on  Tuesday  the matter was
cleared up by the arrival ofthe San
Francisco Examiner of September 3,
with the following  astonishing telegram, dated  from Tacoma, and un-
der a double-column '���scare" head:
''Cholera  makes  way to Sandon"s
homes���Plague  in a town of the
North���Alarm among many jieo-
ple in B. C���Residents leave* to escape the danger of early death-
News of the  calamity' received
from a Tacoma woman^s husband
���Miners desert claims which last
year had been purchased at fabulous prices -Houses over a sluggish stream   The place visited by
the dread scourge located over 100
miles from Rossland.
"Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 2.    Word
was  received   here   today by Mrs.
John W. Breciitel from her husband
at Sandon, B. C, that the people are
fleeing for their I ires from that town
on  account of cholera.   Sandon is
situated on a narrow gulch leading
to Bear  Lake, about  150 miles to
the east and north of Rossland. Tlie
houses are built upon piles and posts
over the small  and sluggish stream
which  runs down  the gulch; the
stream  acting as the sewer  for the
entire camp.   With   thc subsidence
of the  spring  freshets and partial
drying up of the stream, tbe serious
conditions began  to create alarm,
and life became almost unbearable.
Doors  were  kept   closed and  all
means  possible were taken to lessen
the evil, but to ho pur[��ose.   A short
time ago cholera broke out, gathering its victims at an alarming rate.
Sandon is the center ofa rich silver
bearing country, and it is  looked
upon as one of the  most promising
silver camps in the entire Rossland
field.   Last year a great rush  of
miners and speculators made Sandon a  lively  mining  camp,  and
claims on the narrow gulch sold for
fabulous prices.   Now many of tbe
richest claims have been abandoned
on account of the scarcity of miners.
No estimate of the number of deaths
has been received."
When this was read in Sandon
thc first impression it gave was one of
amusement at the glaring ignorance
displayed as to everything concerning Sandon. "Inhabitants fleeing for
their lives;" "Sandon situated In a
narrow gulch Jeading'o Bear Lake;"
"the houses built on piles over a
small and sluggish stream:" "life
almost unbearable;" "many of tlte
richest   claims   have been   aban
dotted;" and all the other misstAte-
ments made it look as If the funnV
man had taken the telegraph editor s
place. Indignation, however, that
such a report about the town shonld
be published broadcast was freely
expresst*d in the most* vehement language.
As a matter of fact, then* has lieen
but one death in Sandon since last
April, that of a child from natural
causes altogether. The healthful-
ncs* of the camp is remarkable, aud
especially so, being a new mining
camp. The sanitary* work is thoroughly done, the water works derives its water from a system of pure
mountain streams, and no place in
British (Vrluiuhia or in the United
States Is in healthier condition than
Sandon at the present time. In
fact, the doctors here have so little
business that none of them can afford to advertise.
Sandon people are still in the dark
as to who is thc author of the libel.
The John W. Brecbtel mentioned in
the dispatch has been running a
barber shop for some months down
on Reco avenue, but has sold out.
and left last Sunday for Tacoma.
There is a difference of opinion as to
whether the man is "nutty", or
whether he Is sore on tin*'town.
There is a iawailri.it v that he merely
wished to discourage his wile front
coming to Samion, and wrote berk
harrowing tale of the conditions existing for that purpoae. If this surmise is tlte correct one, Brecbtel has
certainly a Mm nuchauscn ability of
no small ca Ii Int.
But, however this may be then*
can be but one opinion of contempt
for a newspaper, so called, that will
print so important and hurtful an
article iu its columns without attempting to ascertain how much,
any. Irani there was in it. Without
doubt, the Examiner has established
its reputation in Sandon aa an ex-
|a>nent of cheap sensational journalism, without conscience or sense.
Any reputable newspaper would
have taken the trouble to telegraph
Ui Sandon and have fonnd out as to
the facts before printing such a dispatch from a correspondent in a distant city*. A journal that will publish such an untruthful article to go
before the public and frighten relatives and friends outside In guilty of
a criminal action, and should' la*
suppri-ssed by law.
Urgent Mill In the World.
The Tread well mine on Douglas
island, Alaska, will soon have tbe
largest mill in the world. Its capacity will la* 30) stamps and the cost
of treating the ore Is variously esti
mated at from 80cents to $1 jar too*
There are 7,000,(100 tons of on* in
sight. The next largest mill in the
world is one of 2H0 stamps in South
Tlie Illecillewaet district* hitherto
rarely noticed, is coming to the
front with some splendid showings,
the Blue Bell being the most r<*eent
surprise up tln-re. This claim con
tains several stringers ten to twelve
feet apart and from a foot to three
or four met wide, containing verv
rich derosits of smelting ore running
high in all values. Tbe claim is la-
ing developed.
It is estimated that there is over a
million and a half dollars worth of
ore in sight at the head of Libby
and Fisher creeks, in Western Montana.

friendly relations with a foreign state.
This element has little or no influence
upon the public administration.   Then
there are million* who are quite indifferent and do not even employ the English language for ordinary intercourse.
These people also bear no relation to
the foreign policy as it effects England.
In fact vou can go over the various
classes of citizens in the Republic and
find that those elements which, in a
warm   rontroversy,  could   compel a
friendly policy towards Great Britain
are disorgAnlsed, ineffective and practical! v impotent.   This fact is perfectly
well known on this continent; Englishmen who are governed by preconceived
notions, or are influenced by pleasant
social experiences, hesitate to accept it.
They often  ask:   how are hostilities
staved off if the maintenance of international friendliness is so frail a structure ?   Mainly by the immense financial
and commercial interests at stake, and
also because the United Statesians are
a practical ->eople and do not believe
in any war unless it will bring solid
advantages and is pretty certain of success.   The situation is now understood
by the Imperial authorities; the people,
we infer from numerous letters in the
English press and editorial articles.
Then look at the advertisement which
Canada would secure through such a
radical departure from conventional
methods. Half tlie wealth of the country could be exploited for the benefit of
individuals and the other half for the
profit of the country as a whole. Thus
the Yukon will become the trial ground
for a peaceful conflict between individual and collective effort.

The lives of each one of us are links in
an endless chain.   Whitter, it was, who
describes life as "a cry  between the
silences."   That is a lonesome view of
it.   We are living expressions of the
dead who rest from their labors.   One
generation is but the custodian of that
left by the preceding generation; we of
today are tbe custodians of the future;
our lives will mould the lives of those to
follow.   An unborn generation is within
us. For them our every-day life is preparing a gloomy or a glorious morn. We
are shaping the Uvea of those to follow
by our strength or by our weakness. To
live means to turn the back on inaction.
A slothful life is not a real life. We
must be eternally- doing. Enemies ?
Yes. Human nobodies have no enemies,
but he wbo goes forth with noble purpose is bound to run counter to the

I was sitting1 ont on the guards of the
Telegraph, one of those elegant packets
of the line which carries passengers and
freight between Pomeroy, the salt
center of the Ohio Valley, and Cincinnati, late one night in July.
It was too warm in the stateroom and
so, with coat and vest off and slippers
on. I had gone out to sit on the guards
and catch the breeze made by the onward motion of the, packet, and to enjoy
the soft moonlight and its weird effects
of light and shadow upon the water and
trees ihat fringed either batik.
It was after midnight, and the merry
party that had made the cabin floor
vibrate beneath their flying feet, had
deserted the dance and were tossing
about in their heated staterooms vainly
imagining that they were sleeping.
The Telegraph was taking on a great
pile of freight���pig iron. The negro
roustabouts, each with a great pad ou
his shoulder, were coming and goiiur
like a long line of heavily-laden ants,
chanting a strain all the time, that
seemed to encourage them to greater
The time, the words all seemed barbaric, and closing my eyes, I no longer
saw the packet rocking on the water,
with her great beauty of outline and
colon uor the huge pile of pig iron, nor
the sleeping town at whose landing we
were lying.-
A great sandy desert, dazzling from
the hot light of the sun, lav stretched
measureless before me. The water
elms over there were the tufted palms
of an oasis, and the dusky negro roust-
vbouts had been transformed by tbe
magic wand of the moonlight into'Arah
camel-drivers who were chanting their
barbaric chant to their camels.

The mate VLively now !r haa ceased,
when suddenly away back aft I hear
the plunking of a banjo. Plun. plunk,
pliinkety, plunk, plunk. Not the high
clear "plink" of. the silver-rimmed
beauty, which was the rage of society,
but the deeper "plunk" of a genuine
old-fashioned banjo, the pride and the
joy of a whole plantation of negroes.
Listen!   Someone is singing:
"HamLineit am tweet, and hst-ou rnest am good
Possum meat mat hery, bety Boo.
Oh bow I wish you'd fret um, Oh bow I wish you
Dai water tniiynn tu.n<*ing on m vine."
It was first chanted by the ptaver
alone and then the chorus was taken
up by the whole crew of roustabouts,
who had just come aboard from Ave
hours of the hardest labor, and yet. toil
all forgotten, their deep mellow bass
and their clear tenor voices sang out
above the noise made bv the wheels of
the boat, making ont of that senseless
ditty the sweetest musk I have ever
I asked the clerk, who had brought
his chair out there, if he could get them
to come forward where I could gee
them. He went aft and called them
and they came.
There were about ten of them, all
great powerful-looking fellows but one.
e had a banjo. He was a slender fel
low, below the medium height.of bright
yellow complexion and glittering little
black eyes. Climbing up the capstan
he hugged his banjo to him as a monkey hugs a kitten and then struck up;
"Ise trabelllnfr brtck to Pixie.
No more l^K-riDeta wander. .
Rich and deep came the mighty roll
of base and high and clear the tenor.
It seemed that the very moonlight
vibrated with the melody.
"I went down to Htilloh town,
Yah, my Lawd, irwine to inert you ���
Hull-frogs kicking houses down,
III meet you by and by."
''That is the worst darky on the
globe," said the clerk.   "He does noth
ing but pick that banjo nnd spread that
mouth ol his front ear to ear."
" Where is he from r I asked.
"From everv where and goiug back,'
was the replv.' "I'll last a cold hundred
that he and that ban jo have been from
Pittsburg to New i Irleans 50 times, ami
he has always got plenty of money.
He's a great i-ntp-sliooter, and with all
that wide grin he is a very devil. He
will use a razor or a knife quicker than
greased lightning."
''Does he work ?"
"Who, Billv:*��� No, siree. He says
that a gentleman never works."
'How does he pay his way?"
"With that blamed old banjo, and
shooting cra|��s Those darkies drew
their pay todav, and they won't have a
red left hv the time we reach the levee
at the citv. Billy will have every cent,
they will (have some nasty euts, aud

easy bed in mother earth. Just listen
to liim sing. He knows there is a harvest to gather."
'���Ho* the tjorn. Hue de eon,. Moses.
Hoe the oorn, 1*11 m.t��t yi��u by and by."
"Yon notice when he talks or sing**,
he does so like a regular Sambo, but
that little yellar devil has had a good
education.' That flat talk is part of bis
stock in trade," continued the clerk, as
Billy flung his banjo in the air. and
caught il, still keeping perfect time
"Will they shoot craps tonight''" 1
"Yes, keep still and I will get them
started," was the reply.
He called Billy up the steps and said
something to hiin. He went back down
the steps, and suddeuiy called out:
"Go away, bsnjer, dis nigger am tired
ob yo noise. Come lebea, come Teben,
Ise" got you niggahs right in deat* old

Soon, with .eager dark faces, tbe
crowd were gathered about tbe two, as
with glittering eyes sll aflame with the
gambling fever,'thev alternately shook
in their hands the little bl.-uli-dotted
allies of ivorv.
The sat or knelt, a compact intense
group, every nerye alive with the fa*
filiation of the game. Their dark faces,
picturesque in the moonlight, some with
tips parted and white teeth gl a ning,
they looked like a band of pirate* dividing their lot, their ill-gotten spoils.
The dark gambler was winning, and
he showed it in the trembling wav in
which he shook the cubes, in the flam
ing eyes alight with greed for gain.
Tn the songs I had beard or seen the
jolly, careless aide of the negro. I waa
now seeing him in a dangerous and
darker mood. Billy appeared utterly
indifferent to his losses and was merrily
leading his opponent on. Suddenlv
with a fierce oath be challenged the big
fellow for a greater stake. Carried
away by his own eagemess.the brawnv
Titan accepted and threw on the deck
a handful of bills and coins.
Billy's eyes gleamed as he heard the
noise of the coins. It was his turn to
"Come seben, come Teben. um ah I"
The yellow hand gave a queer tnrn,
upon the deck rolled the white culies
with s rsttle. They righted themselves. Every one leaned forward
breathless with eagerness.
"Niggah, dat money Is mine," shouted Billy.
'Sam, dam's not do same bones dat
you trowed." said one of the group,
snatching st the same time at the
ivories. But Billy plucked them out of
his hand and grabbed the money from
the deck with a curse that was more
like a growl from between his set white

something gleamed with an angry flash
In the moonlight. The rouster had

A flash and the knife with a horrible

One of the favorite arjrumenU of the
*in*_-le jrold sUndard advocates In excusing the coinage by all nation* of a
���liver money that is not worth one-half
the amount stamped on its fsce, i* that
under a single standard all money in
circulation is lm*ed upon and backed
by gold, and therefore, while of itself
a silver dollar or a bank note may be
of very little vahie. the gold behind it
puts into it the value printed or .stamped
on it* face. Thi* is probably the most
reasonable sounding explanation of the
<|ue*tion from a gold-bug standpoint.
But let us look deeper iuto the question
and find what they have to back their
According to the be*i obtainable sta-
Untie, the world's total supply of gold
is but *t,Tr*)/iitt),0Oi). The annual production of gold in not more than one
hundred million. Suppose this was sll
mined into money, it wonld add lea*
than H cent* per capita to tbe world's
circulating medium provided none of
the stock on haml -h.��uld be lost or dete
troved. But the loss from abrasions
and from other source*, would consume
every dollar of the output. The total
production of gold since I4,*ri is 18,5*04,-
tV tt.iii., ami the world's present stock of
gold is but ���a.THO.Otsi.iaai. which show*
a lov*. bv abrasion aud from other causes
of ���l.iii.'ktt.'ssj since ll'��.\ besides the
h'tss of the whole stock of gold on hand
at that time. If the output of gold can
keep the present stock good it is all
that can reasonably be expected of it:
it isprohsblx more than willbc realised.
With a single gold standard, then, we
cannot hope to add a dollar to tbe cir
culating medium for all time to come,
and it will remain at about four billion
Taking tbe single Htandard advocates
al I heir own argument, let us now find
Ibe amount of subsidiary money, silver
and paper, based as they say upon gold.
!>r Adolph Soetbeer. the great German
statistician, an acknowledged authority
tin the question, gives the total production of silver and grid since thediseov-
erv of America a* follows: QoJd, f8,*_ni.-
��*,�������>, sllvtv, Ift,7_6,0?_,0i-). From
these fljrures it will be seen that silver
is lx*tter ahle tt> l*ack up the gold than
gold the silver, since the value of the
white metal production is more than a
billion dollar*! greater than that of the
yellow. But we wilt not take the total
production of tlte metals as a basis.
I.el us look at the approximate sttn-ks
of monev in the princnial countries of
tbe world, taking our tignres from the
Treasury Department

Again we find a difference of one billion

greater metal W based upon the
These figures show
then so must the corporate, municipal,
and individual debts, which, according
to our best authorities, are estimated
at three times as much more, making a
grand total of more than ���100,000,000,(XM)
What now, have we based npon the
stock of gold valued at t8,780,000,000 ?
Here it is: Silver, ���4,(I42,700,000*, paper,
t2,tWj,878,00i>, indebtedness of the
world, national, corporate, municipal
and individual, $100,OtX),000,OOQ.
These astounding facts are not to be
overlooked when considering the financial question. We hear men talking
about an "honest" dollar, limited legal
tender silver, and the ''sound** financial
Kilicy of civilization, when it can easily
l seen that thev know nothing about
the question, ft will readily be seen
from the figures given above that the
present gold standard policy of most
nations is the weakest the world has
ever known, and that the world cannot
long continue on so shakey a financial
basis, and that silver must be replaced
in the position it held in the financial
make-up of all nations prior to thirty
years ago. It must be made a money
of final redemption, full legal tender for
all debts, public and private, coined at
the same ratio with gold that it is now
coined, and as freely as gold.
It is claimed by the opponents of silver that under free coinage the silver
mining industry would be stimulated
to -till further production, and that in
cxmseqnence the money of the world
would be largely increased in volume.
Let it be conceded that this would be
the natural result of free coinage, what
would be tbe effect on the business
interests of the world? The danger of
a people having too mneh money is not
so great as the danger of having too
little. As the money was increased in
volume the business* of the world would
revive; better conditions would prevail
in all lands. Instead of poverty,
squalor, vice, and starvation the poor
classes In sll land* would have an opportunity of earning for themselverat
least some of the comforts of life.

A Shipload to be Taken up Early in
Ute Spring-Tiiere'S Millions
In it They Say.
A correspondent writing from Washington to the Minneapolis Journal says:
It is generally understood that among
the first bills introduced at the next
session of congress will be several to
charter railroads for Alaska. Two or
three 'corporations have already been
formed with this object in view, and
some steps have been taken already to
secure the right from the Canadian government to extend the line into the
Northwest territory.
It will be an exceedingly difficult feat
of engineering to connect the water* of
the Pacific with the headwaters of tlie
Yukon by any ordinary method of railroad building, but a well-known engineer
of Albany and of this city, R. M. Fryer,
has devised and patented what might be
called a cantilever railroad system,
which, apparently, can be constructed
for very tittle money, very rapidly and
in any country where a foothold for a
"sheer pole" a few inches square can be
obtained. Capitalists have taken hold
of this new railroad system, which wss
originally intended for use in some of
the Centra) American republics. It ia
now more than likely that the first railroad in Alaska will be s radically new
departure in railroad building, ft will
be an elevated road, propelled by electricity and will afford the noval spectacle of a railroad .'carrying its freight
beneath ita tracks. Besides cheapness
and rapidity ef construction, the Fryer
system seems to afford great edvsntsge
over a surface road in that heavy snows
would never interfere with it* operation.
A few days ago a letter was received
in this citv addressed to Senator Wolcott
of Colorado, from one of hia constituents
in Colorado Spring*. Wolcott is now in
Europe with his monetary commission,
snd the communication therefore fell to
hi* secretary. It was an application for
tbe office of receiver of the land office at
Klondike, The petitioner said he was
fully qualified for the office*. He detailed his services to the party, and said he
thought he* wss entitled to something
eqtjallys* good, and the laud office at
Klondike would be just about his sixe.
In the interval* of his duties be could go
out sad dig a little gold. Hi* petition
wss indorsed by a huge number of the
leading merchants and politicians of
Colorado Springs. Senator Wolcott'*
secretary promptly answered the sspir-
ing applicant in formal language to tlie
effect that Klondike is now in British
territory, but if the time should come
when it is annexed to the United States,
hi* application wonld then receive the
distinguished consideration of the Senator. One would think by this time that
most people in this country would be
aware that tbe Klondike is not American territory, but this will evidently be
news in some parts of Colorado.
"Those who go to the Klondike to dig
for gold will not be the onlv ones who
will come back with fortunes/' said an
old army officer at the club recently.
"People who go n- there with a good
legitimate ;*on*ereisl scheme have got a
sure tiling and no risk. I have been
thinkingever since this excitement began
whatan tm paralleled chsnce ttsffordt lot
shrewd men to mske fortunes. If I were
only s little younger I would go myself.
Ihd it ever occur to you that there is s
fortune to be made by tome enterprising
man out of onions np there in Alaska 7
Wby, it's a sure tiling, and yon will see
that somebody will think of it. Any
msn who will take a vessel load of onion*
up the Yukon ss soon ss nsvigation
opens up .aext spring; can come home
and retire. Onion* will be worth s nugget apiece up their next abring. There
will be thousand* of people hibernated
there for eight or nine months thl*
winter with nothing to eat but "salt
horse" and canned goods, without a
mouthful of fresh food during the whole
time, and bv next April most of them
will have a" touch of scurvy. There is
nothing which will relieve this terrible
disease so qutcklv as onion*. I have frequently seen it in the army when we
have been compelled to make long
marches across tlie western deserts, or
have been for long separated from our
base of supplies and unable to get fresh
vegetables. Ar* soon as we reached civil-
ratio* the men would take to eating
onion*, and get immediate relief from
them. They are the first thing sailors
always buv when they come in from a
longvovage. A cargo of onions fended
on the Yukon next spring will literally
be worth a fortune to the enterprising
trader who will take them up there, and
wonld be tlie mean* of saving a good
many lives as well."
The Great Canadian lievelopment and
Mining Com pan v, contemplates a gigantic enterprise���the building ot a wagon
road from Edmonton to tlie gold fields.
In this work the company has not only
the hearty co-operation and support of
the Dominion government snd the Canadian Pacific Railway, but it is hacked
by ample capital to push the work to
completion. Capitalists of Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, whose wealth is estimated at millions, are hack of the
scheme, tbe capital is ready, the charter
secured and Mr. Powell has been appointed manager of the enterprise.
The survey party started from Edmonton about the 1st of September and will
work sll winter building bridges, stables
snd store*. None but men employed

The plan is to build one toad by Uie way
of Lurd river, one of the main branches
ol the McKenxie river, and another by
way of Pelly river, which is one of the 4
headwaters of the Yukon.
Stables will be built so aa to provide

The company will give a man transportation and food for one year for 9800.
The plan is (o issue a certificate on the
coupon plan good at the store* for rood,
which will be nemtiable. The latter
feature it is thought will be especially
attractive, sa the companies now contracting to take men Into the digging*

district aod have done well are now in
Winnipeg and are warning |a*ospectors
against going via Edmonton. One said:
"I don't believe a msn would reach tbe
Yukon diggings in a year, no, not in
eighteen months, going via Edmonton
route. About the last .stage of the Edmonton trip would he down the Porcupine river. At the end of the Porcupine
trip the traveller would then have to go
back up stream between three snd four
hundred miles, with a six-mile current
against him alt the way, to reach tlie
gold district. Besides, he would encounter almoat impsasable swamp* snd
rapid*, snd if he ever got through at sll
would hsve the toughest kind ofa time.
Tlie Edmonton route will be all right
when they build a railroad over it," concluded Uie gentleman with a laugh, "but
I imagine it will be some time before
that is built. Meantime, f would advtne
people who have any thoughts of it not
to risk the hasartlous trip via Edmonton."

There ia juat now a large demand u'Mtn the treasury department fbr small coins to assist in
tbe movement of crops. Director
of the Mint Preston aaya tbat tbe
coinage of subsidiary silver and
minor coina will be continued until a sufficient stuck haa been accu
mulated to meet the current demand. The available number of
ailver dollars In the treasury baa
been reduced aoout 8,000,000. aod
it ia probable an order will be issued nest week for coining into
silver dollars some of the bullion
purchased under tbe act of 1890.
No silver dollars have been purchased for some time Tlieir coinage will be reaumed because they
are needed to meet the demand
arising from the revival of busi*
ties*. Tbe bullion purchased under tbe aot of 1890 can not be used
in tba manufacture of aubaidiary
coin* and must be converted into
silver dollar* whenever ita coinage
becomes uec*jeaary.

Labor Datj.
Labor day became a public institution in thia country in 1893.
It waa the government, under the
late 8ir John Thompson, at the
tepeated request* ofthe Dominion
Trades and Labor congress, which
saw fit to enact the law whereby
the first Monday iu September of
each year was inaugurated as a
public holiday, to be known as
Labor day. By this fact is shown
state recognition of tbe claims of
labor as "a great social aud industrial factor," s government ac*

On a Tour With Etjes on Politics
and Railroad Matters.
Mayor W. Tcmpleton, fl. R. Maxwell,*!!. P., D. 0, MacDonell, C. N.
Davidson and D. Menzies of Vancouver, prominent members of the Liberal party, passed through town
Saturday.' Mayor Templeton is
prominently mentioned for the ottlce
of Lieutenant-governor if the Liberals are successful at the next
election. Mr. MacDonell said they
were getting information about the
inining districts iu order to talk intelligently to eastern people. He
would not say that their trip had
anything to do with politics, but
said they were going to turn down
the provincial government at the
next election if possible. Thc party
returned through Rossland and the
Boundary country. They are Iif
terested * in the 'proposed railway
from Vancouver along the international line to the Columbia river,
and the principal object of the trip
is in the promotion of tnis line.
The Klondike Boon and British
The Klondike boom has already
had an important effect ih stimulating abroad itltcrest and inquiry,
concerning British Columbia. and
the recent formation ofa British Columbia market on thc I/.ndon Stock
exchange is plainly confirmatory of
this view. Whether it is altogether
desirable that this province should
lie associated with the latest gold
fever, or that the cause of the awakening interest in ber mineral resources should be produced on tbe
suppositional richness of thc Yukon,
is a matter of serious question. It
is, of course, impossible to doubt the
richness of.the deposits of thc placer
ground on the Klondike and Its tributaries, and there can be no doubt
but that the yield of gold from the
new diggings will be extraordinary
if not unprecedented; nevertheless,
it is almost certain that owing to the
peculiar climatic conditions and gctf-
Sraphical position of thia inhospita-
le region the mortality, distress
and disappointment among the miners there will this season be terrible,
and a reaction of the present excitement is inevitable. A number of
stock companies have, moreover,
been organized in the United States
and in London to exploit and investigate the Yukon and Klondike gold
Holds. Possibly in nine cases out of
ten  these  so-called  companies are
Ealpable swindles, but even when
onestly promoted enterprises of this
nature are, under the circumstances,
}>re-ordained to result in loss to those
bolish enough to risk money in the
undertaking. It is a well known
fact that even otherwise well informed people in England are ignorant to aa extraordinary degree in
the geographical position of the remote colonial possessions, and to emphasize this statement it is onlv necessary to point out that manv or
ihe Influential old country financial
publications have lately told their
readers that tbe Klondike was a
British Columbia river. If, therefore, a reaction to the Klondike
boom seta in, the prestige that British Columbia has gained by such
slow degree* will necesaarily suffer.
If, however, we could but assure
ourselves that the recent sudden increased growth of interest in England, aa evinced by the formation of
a proper market for British Co! urn
bia wining shares, was the logical
result ofa recognition that our mining industrv was now estaWisheil on
a permanentlv solid footing, we
would have ample rcason fbr congratulation. ,   ,
We would, however, particularly
remind our readers that investment
in the dividend-paying and devel-
oped mines of the Kotxenay is inn*
nitelv later, if not certain u> tw more
remunerative, than to risk money
with the companies proposing to ae-
duirc propertv in this latest El Dorado of Yukon. It is only a Question of time when thc rich placer
ground in that country will be
worked out, while the er*4abli��hed
mines of Kootenay are likely. In the
course of thc next few years, to be
placed on a still more profitable basis
than they are today. It will be
time enough to Invest mAisy in the
Klondike when better transportation
facilities are provided thcf-efhan,
and quartz mining (for it is possible
rich ledges will be diivovered then >
takes the place of gravel washing.-
