Applying For a Charter.
The C. P. R. advertise that they
intend to apply to the Privv council
for a charter for a line from Three
Forks to Bear Lake, six miles in
length. The plans have been made
and are now in the hands of the superintendent. There is a very general opinion, however, that this line
will never be built, but that the C.
P. U. will obtain control of the K.

The Wonderful Trouble.
There has lieen much speculation

has been stirred up in Spokane over
the management of the Wonderful
groan of mines, near Sandon. So
far the evidence has all lieen given
by the investigators, who claim that
the company paid for six claims and
only got three, but as Manager Field
mys they only paid for three and
three are all they will get, the
chances are they will only get three.

CHAPTER 6
THE VIRGINIA COTERIE.
A Social Organisation to Make
Amusement for Eoert|bodq.
The Virginia Coterie is an organization formed in Sandon this week,
to give a series of high class social
parties during the coming season, in
which amusements of different kinds
will be furnished, to enable those
who do not dance or who wish to
vary the evening with other forms
of social games to find entertainment. Dancing, however, will be
the main feature. The first entertainment will be Thursday evening,
November 4, and thereafter every
two weeks during the season. Virginia hall has been engaged, and
the other rooms on the same floor
will be usedfor tiie social features.
The Sandon orchestra will furnish
the music, which guarantees there
will be nothing wanting in that respect. J. A. McVichie will call.
The supervising committee is Wm.
Sudrow, W. I. Williams, Robert
Hammond and John Gable.
The Virginia Coterie will be welcomed by the people of Sandon as
filling a long felt want. The majority of people like to dance, but there
are a great many who would like to
attend the social' gatherings, but do
not care for dancing. These will
appreciate the innovation made for
their benefit. The Coterie intends
sparing no pains in making a pleasant evening for all its guests, and
will introduce riew ToVas for each
evening, making it novel and in-
eresting. Tickets have been placed
on sale at Donaldson'sdrug store, at
fl. 	
ALL SORTS.
John Cameron, who ha�� been in Edmonton
for three or font weeks, returned this week.
He says Edmonton U feeling the effect of the
Klondike boom very mneh.
The Klondike sailors have arrived at the
Victoria.
The tire hall U now well under way. Chief
Maginnis is building it.
After the end of the present month, the
nteamer Alberta passenger service, leaving
Nelson at a a. to. and Kaslo at 4 p. m., will he

Pitts Bros are making a foundation on their
lot oppo-ita Black's hotel for a store building
ilxl i feet, two stories.
The last trip this season on the Bonner's
Ferry route wUl be November tlth and 7th,
after which date this service will be continued.
A Trail Blarer cigar lightens the cares of toil
and gives to the troubled conscience the peace
of innocence.
A pleasant dance was given lest Mondey
evening in the new Central hotel, to be opened
shortly by Messrs. Pierson a Fischer. The
affair was under the supervision of Mrs. Garter and Mrs. Fisher, and was largely attended.
The regular services wUl he held at the
Methodist church tomorrow, at 11 a. m. and
1:15 p. m. After the evening service a short

THE KLONDIKE NEWS.
A Copy of Uie Datoaon Paper in
Sandon.
A facsimilie copy of the Klondike
News, of date of July 17th, the first
paper published in  Dawson City,
was shown in Sandon this week.   It
is a little four page, three column
paper, and the subscription is 120 a
year, or 75 cents a copy. It gives
stability to the reports from that
region, and its items, reported in a
matter-of-fact way, are interesting.
We copy a few:
Claim 26, above Discoverv, on
Bonanza Creek, still maintains its
output. Mitchell A Densmore are
working 28 men on it and the dirt
washes out about 14000 to the box.
Peter Aimslev, a miner working
for Harry McCullogh on Bonanza
Creek, was brought before Captain
Constantine last week, charged with
carrying concealed weapons. He
pleaded not guiltv. He was fined
*50.
A little excitement was occasioned
in the new Hun key Creek district
last week by reason of s strike for
higher wages on the part of the
miners. Tney were receiving 11.50
per hour and struck for $1.75. After
a short consultation their demand
was granted.
Henry Eckley filed transfer papers
with Gold Commissioner Fswcett,
deeding his claim No. 9 on Bear
Creek to Mark Angell. The consideration was f65,0Ua Mr. Bcklev
will take over 1100,000 with him
back to the States. He will leave
here next week on the Portos B.
Weare.
A nugget was taken from claim
60, below Discovery on Bonanza the
other day larger than the one Bert
Hudson found in No. 6. J. O. Heat-
wood owns the propertv. This Isst
nugget is worth 1893. The Hudson
nugget weighed in  for only $257.
Log cabins in Dawson are renting
at |75 per month, with none in the
market. Newcomers are obliged to
raft in logs and build their own
cabins.
There Is much dissatisfaction
among miners and trades people
over the fiction of the river companies in limiting the amount of gold
they will carry at esch trip. It Is
said thst the Alice took with her
onlv about 1300,000, and the Healy
wjll not take so much. As a conse
quence it is estimated thst there is
over a million dollars in dust and
nuggets awaiting' transportation at
this point.
Married���At two o'efock Isst
Monday Captain Constantine of the
Mounted Police celebrated a verv
pretty double wedding, the charming Miss Gussie La More, formerly of
Juneau, becoming Mrs. William
Swlftwater, and Mist Violet Ray.
mond becoming Mrs Prince Antone.
Mr. Swiftwater came to Klondike in
the early rash. He located claim
IB, El Dorado, and Is now a millionaire. Mr. Antone also owns a very
desirable claim. The Indies came to
Dawson City together, and were
married the third day after their
arrival. We wish them all happiness.
Died���Frank Belcher, of Penney!-
, vanla, aged 28 yeara, died Wednesday night of typhoid fever.   He bad
about 135,000 stowed la his cabin,
aud had just sold his claim for 125,-
000 more. It was his intention to
leave on the Healy, but fate willed
otherwise. He was burled in Prospect HUI.
THE   HOCKEY   CLUB.
Enthusiastic Meeting Tueadau Boon*
ing and Organisation Effected.
A well attended meeting was held
inthe parlors of the Filbert hotel

for CrueKa to Animals.
John Msdigan and Richard
Mstheson, of Three Fwks, were tried
before Jnstices Lily and Ssndilands
last Tuesday, charged with abuse of
horses. The complaint was made
by Constable F. R. Mountain. Thc
evidence went to show that the
horses were in bad condition from
sore backs snd did not get enough
to eat. Mstheson wss let off wjth
an admonition aod Madigan was
fined 125 snd costs.
A Retnarfcable Case.
A remarkable case is reported
from the east of a man who is enjoying perfect health, haa good digestion and does not softer from
rheumatism, and strange to say is
not using Dr. Horsemana liver pills
nor Mrs. Squills celebrated M.C.D.

44 Where there are placers there
are lodes," is a statement often made
with the u--eunuice of "where there
is smoke there Is fire." We hear it
now frequently with reference to tlie
new deposits of tbe Yukon. In this
esse it is almost entirely a matter of
surmise, because there bas not been
yet any freiiersl exploration lor lodes
there, attention having been concentrated naturally upon Uie easily
worked placers, sod prm-iecting in
the bills being difficult, tor vsiious
reasons. There may be workable
veins of gold quartz above the placers
and there may not 1 here sre vague
reports as the the existence of some,
but it does not follow necessarily,
either in the Yukon or elsewhere,
tbat where there are placers there
are worksble lodes.
A plscer deposit of gold or tin Is a
natural concentrator ot mineral that
existed in solid rock. The eros'.on of
wind snd water acting through Im
measurable time has worn down the
earth a surface in msny places to a
tnsrveious extent In this kind of
disintegration stable minerals like
gold and cssslterite, which sre of
much greater speciHe gravity thsn
their origitjsl matrix, were concentrated In water courses, Just as they
are now concentrated by men In
sluicing. But nature has concentrated millions and millions of tona of
material where man baa to concentrate comparatively few.
The discovery of such s nstural
concentration, an illuvial deposit,
does not however, Imply that its
source will be found, or If found, thst
it will be workable, because the
original lode may nave been eroded
entirely, and therefore no longer\n
existence; tbe plscer gold or tin may
have come from a dissemination in a
great mass of rock which It would
never pay to mine, or from Innumerable veinlets which were never
exploitable; or the aurUerous debris
may have been carried far from its
original source by glacial action, so
that no connection between placer
and lode can be established. It Is not
to be Inferred from these suggestions,
however, that there are not cases
where placers have led. direct!) to
mother lodes. Numerous it-stances
can be cited where they have done
so, and vice vena. Tho conclusion
Is simply tbat no general rule can be
laid down, and the existence of rich
placers does not In itself imply tbe
existence of rich, or even^<>rkable
veins. ,,     n .
The plscens of BreckenrWge, Colo., j
were dist-ovcred at the time of the
Pikes Peak excitement {\*W>) and|
have lieen worked more or less ever j
since,    producing   a   good   many
millions ot gold.   Tbelr origin lYoni!
lodes near by can be traced with
reasonable certainty, nnd some of
tbi-se lodes have been worked prt> {
litsblv,   but the pnaluctlon of the|
lodes has not vet been a tithe of that
of tbe placers.   At the bead of French
gulch, which wss very rich, there Is
sn immense auriferous dike inusrsee* j
ting the slate country  rock.    The
dike Itself is generally low grade, {
but In tbe Joint plane* of the slate |
adjacent to It there are veinlets ot ex* i
ceediuglv rich ore In which the won
derful specimens **t wire and crys>
talinegokl fbr which IkwkenrWge
to fatuous are found.   Both tbe dike
and the veinlets in tbe slate have'
heen worked,  but so far neither of
them profitably.   There was a sltn
liar experience st l.*-a��Jvillc,  where,
the mine* which were discovert**! st
the bead of California gulch never j
yielded what the wealth ofthe gulch I
h Atom wss thought to lndksie.   In
these instances nature in long eras I
effected probably a rich concentration
of gold from an immense amount <f
very low grade material. I

SANDON,  B.   0.,   OCT. 3a  1^7.
OUB  NATIONAL   CORMORANT.
From the Crows Nest Pass comes a
cry from the laborers ol the C.P.K.
which should receive prompt sttention
from the Dominion Government. In
another column will be found an extract from the Spokesman-Review,
which illustrates tbe methods by
which tbe railroad oa obtains labor. It
is a story of wrong snd heartless deception which all Canada knows that
soulless corporation to be rally capable
of.
The statement as given to tbe
Spokane paper has sll the appearance
of fact, snd is more than corroborated
by Alberta journals, wbo state that
the services ol the Mounted Police
are being freely used to round up
laborers who quit working on the
railroad. This is apparently s modern edition of the southern fugitive
Slave law of olden limes, revived snd
transplanted to what we are wont to
tei rn the free soil ot Canada, for tbe
special benefit of the C.P.R.
It Is plainly seen that the standing
policy of the company Is the same
now in the Grows Nest Pass, ss It hss
been hitherto In all other psrts ot tbe
line, that Is to obtain the cheapest and
lowest grade labor whether it be
Italians, Chinese or Hottentots. Tbe
interests of the laboring class as a
factor in this community never counts
with the C.P.R. That this oormorsnt
monopoly can afford to treat its workmen on tbe Crows Nest Pass road, snd
elsewhere, as hmnau beings, may be
gathered from the feet that fbr the
first week of October of the present
year its earnings were $668,000
against $877,000 fbr tbe same period
last year. This vast increase of income contributed by the people should
be controlled snd used fbr tbe benefit
of tbe people, snd such is tbe case In
all othereolonles of Britain. Under
existing conditions the increasing
revenue of ������our* National Highway
serves bat to enrich a gang of sharks
who are revelling in the luxury of
European capitals white the overworked snd underpaid workers of
all grades in their employ, may, in
order to obtain living wages, have to
go on another strike.
We do not suppose that when the
present Minister of Railways exercised tlie power verted in himotdietat*
but to tbe C P.R in tbe matter of coal
limits, and other so-called rights,
fraudulently given them by tbe Mac-
DonaJd-Tupper combination, tbat be
eoold have thought them capable of
SOcD a slwrt^ftted policy as that of
farther embittering tbe people against
them on the ground of outrageous
treatment of workmen. But we insist
on the government taking up this
matter of the treatment of white men,
decoyed on false pretences from distant centers cf populstion, dumped
down in a desolate region at the
mercy of a corporation wbo have
about as much consideration fbr the
just treatment of workmen as an
African hvena.
CANADA'S    ABILITY    TO   BORROW.
Canada's credit is good at home
and abroad. The ease with which
she floated a $10,000,000 loan Isst
week in London is proof of this. The
money was borrowed st a very low
rate of interest���2.73 per cent���the
loan to run 50 years. The Isst Can-
sdian loan wss for &50GlOOrj, floated
in 1^)4 and the interest psysbleon
it is 3.16 per cent. In 1885 a loan
was floated lor $4,000,000 st 4.08 per
cent Of Canada's total delft, $14.'%-
000\OCO bears 4 per cent Interest,
���?.!7,00G,000 bears 3| per cent. $52,-
000,000 hears 3 per cent, $27,000,000
5 percent snd on 11,000000 6 per
cent. Tbe Isst loan Hosted to on the
most fa v rable conditions of any, and
indicates that Canada's credit is yet
good In the financial world. More
titan half of the bonds were token by
Canadian banks and Ittsursnee companies.
It is a favors hie condition fbr any
country doing business on a credit
basis to be sbie to borrow money at
a low rate of interest. Csnada Is
very fortunate. But the question
arises, when Is this borrowing Itosi-
ness to stop? In twenty five years,
from 1871 to 1895, the net debt of
Csnada increased from $77,706,.
517to$353,0r74k9-i7. The last issue
it bonds indicates thst it is still increasing, with no probability of its
being lowered.
Much has being said since the late
bond issue about our country's good
credit all of which sounds patriotic
and fine, and we would not attempt
to dampen anyone's pstriotism, bnt
laying aside all sentiment, to It not a
poor financial policy that compels s
country to vast and rich in resources
as Canada to float bonds year after
year to keep ber head above water?
It Canada's credit ia good enough to
borrow money on, and pay Interest
fbr fifty yean, ts not It good enough
to stand behind gold snd silver dollars of her own mintage, equal in
weight and fineness to the gold and
silver coinage of England or any
other nation 7
He was appointed Chinese itrtsjjts'ctor

succeeded In bringing snoot tbe dismissal of anv of the men he lias ac*

Personal Experience Written by a
Miner.
We left Quesnelle on the llth of
March with 11 sleds and 21 jiien, two
men to a sled with one exception,
but the men all airree now that one
man is the best. Our loads were not
heavy, 300 hundred to a sleigh, and
wheii we got to open country we
made an average of *20 miles a day.
The sleighs were live feet long,
eighteen inches wide and four inches
high, with one,and one-half inch
runners, which were found tod narrow. Two inches to three inches is
what I shall use if 1 go in again, as
a three-inch runner will stand if
there is any crust at all, whereas our
runners cut into all snow that was
not quite hard. We had an example of this, one of our party's being
two inches.
From Quesnelle we followed a
trail that two Indiana from Stuart's
lake had made two weeks before.
For the first 75 miles the winter trail
is very hilly, following the old tele-
frapli trail all the way, and our
ardest work came there. After
passing the Blackwater and Mud
rivers, however, it follows a chain
of small lakes, among which are
Bobtail, Grouse and Chinkat. as far
as Stony creek. On getting there
we found we could hot make Stuart's lake in less than three days,
and as we were just out of grub decided to go to Fraser lake, where
there was a Hudson Bay company's
post, about 25 miles'from Stony
From Fraser wemadeStu-
lake in two days and laid off
three days. From there the
runs up to Manson creek by
wav of the Nation river, but as we
had had a little experience of traveling on lakes we decided to go 100
miles ont of our way and keep to
them if possible.
On leaving Fort St. James on the
southern end of Stuart's lake, which
we did with sorrowing hearts, as it
was there we * had our last taste of
potatoes and fresh milk, wc struck
due north to the mouth of Peace
river, which we made the first night,
about 32 miles, then up the river to
Cross or TremWeur lake and from
there up Middle river to North Tat-
lab lake. After getting up it about
40 miles we struck the toboggan trail
that Indians made for necking into
Manson creek from Kszleton, and
then left the lake, going due east
about 70 or 80 miles, getting into
Manson creek on the fitn of April.
As soon as we struck the Indian
trail we had a picnic, as the toboggans had packed it hard and firm,
and there were old camps about
every three miles along it, relieving
us of the necessity of making a fresh
camp every night. We carried a
fly, which is the same as half a tent,
cut from the ridge pole down. It Is
warmer than a tent, as a large fire
can be built sll along the face and It
* will draw the heat in the same manner as a reflector camp oven does,
aud besides there is the reduction in
weight. We had two pair of single
or one pair of double blankets, and
afthough the thermometer often went
as low ss 30 degrees below zero we
always slept warm.
The snow at Manson creek, where
the companies that are operating in
Omentca are located, disappears
about the 10th of May, so thst operations ean commence at a comparatively eaf&date there.
The trail In the summer is from
Stuart's .Jake by way of the Nation
river. The feed is good along this
trail and about every 15 miles you
will find creek bottoms with gra*s
enough to feed all the pack trains in
British Columbia. About 15 mires
from Stuart's lake there is a prairie
covered with rich wild grasses and
wild pes vine, tt is about live miles
square and quite level. A large
creek bounds it on two sides, and altogether a finer proposition for a
stock mneh could not be found.
Then again, about 10 miles further,
on the north side of the Nation, there
are about six miles of valley laud
that thc trail passes up that arc also
very rich in grass.
On coming out this fall we came
from St. James on the Stuart lake to
Soda ereek In a canoe, a distance of
25*2 miles, in four and one-half hours.
The rivers are easily navigated, canoes snd scows coming down the
whole way all the summer. You
come down the Stuart river to thc
Nechaco and from it to the Fraser.
The country around Manson creek
contains some of the finest hydraulic
propositions in thc country, and
next year there will be numemus
companies operating there, besides
those that are already operating
ground there.
There are two sawmills on the
creek within a mile of each other,
capable of turning out from 8000 to
5000 feet a day, and one has already
out about 75,1U) feet.
Chinamen are scattered alt through
the country, and often make 15 a
day by rocking.
