ROSSLAND, B.C., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1895.
12,00 per mi,
THIRD   YEAR   IN   KOOTENAY.
TENTH   ISSUE   IN   ROSSLAND.
A FIRST-CLASS KNTKHTAINMENT
Was  the  Presbyterian   Concert  In  the
Opera House on Monday.
for the second time in its history
Rossland Opera House was the
|ne of a large gathering on Mon-
' evening last, the occasion being
pncert in aid of the Presbyterian
irch, and the excellence of the
Nisical   talent  displayed  was a
phasing surprise to the audience.
The hall was what may be called
"comfortably packed," that is, all
the   seating   accommodation   was
fully   taken   up, and   very little
standing room  left.   The price of
admission was 25c.-, and the funds
of the church have been augmented
very considerably by the night's
receipts.   The opening remarks by
the chairman-, Rev. J. E. Wallace,
were very brief.   The overture was
" Remembrance of Naples," a very
pretty waltz, the orchestra being
composed entirely of first-class mu-
Bicians, who, although  they had
had but one preliminary practice
together, rendered the piece in a
style that proclaimed   their proficiency and demonstrated the facl
that  Rossland   possesses   musical
talent second to no city in the interior. The musicians were: Messrs.
J. Sumpf, first violin; E. A. Church,
second violin; W.J.Cramer, bass-
viol; T. M. Graham, cornet; E. J.
Webster, flute.   '' Our Jack's come
home  to-day" was  then renders
by Mr.  Clute, the   chorus   being
sung by Mesdames Marsh, Disney
and   Damp,   Miss   Kepkey,   and
Messrs. Henderson and Baillie, Mis;
Maud Kepkey accompanying on tht
piano.    Mr. Clute then  gave as a
solo " Rocked in the cradle of th.
deep," and was followed  by litth
Irene Lewis, a chubby-faced, golden-
haired tot of ab.out six years, win
recited  " Grandpa's  Specs" in   a
most amusing manner,  and woi,
the first encore, to which she prettily responded. "A night in Naples''
was finely rendered by the orchestra, and then Mr. A. Wilson, in the
character   of   an   aged   " oullud
gen'lum." gave a most entertaining
discourse on the prospects of Rossland.   This stump speech was one
of the hits of the evening, and tht
audience was not niggardly in its
applause, and kept it up till he reappeared. His portrayal of a quack
medicine fakir was equally good.
Mrs. Marsh sang "Answered" with
fine effect, and received an encore.
Master   Cranus   Graham   gave   a
clever violin solo, and was rewarded
with considerable applause.    Mrs
Disney's contralto voice came out
sweetly in "A song and a rose," for
which she received a vociferous encore, and  the audience would not
be appeased till she returned to the
stage. The chorus " There's a letter
in the candle" was finely rendered
by the quartette of ladies and gen-
• tlemen mentioned above, and then
Sam Welle?, Esq., sen. (Rev. J. E.
Wallace), in a dialogue with Sam
Weller, jun. (J. S. Clute), gave his
ideas on " valentines." Miss Fanny
Graham, a young lady of 9 years,
received an ovation at the end of
every verse for her very clever rendering of " You can't play in our
yard."   She responded to the encore with a verse of the same, and
retired amid prolonged applause.
The band showed to excellent effect
in the rendering of " She's such a
love" schottische.    This was  followed by the pretty duet, "Hunting-
tower," by Miss Maud Kepkey and
Mr. Clute. They received a hearty
encore and repeated the last verse.
Mr. Henderson, who possesses a
fine baritone voice, received a well-
deserved encore for his rendering
of "Aileen Alannah," and in response gave "Sailing" in an
equally creditable manner. The
last item on the programme was a
dialogue between Sir Lucius OTrig-
ger and Bob Acres, represented by
Rev. J. E. Wallace and Mr. L.
Richardson. There were two scenes,
"The Challenge" and "The Duel,"
and both Characters were ably sustained in each. Mr. Richardson
appeared to best advantage when
Bob Acres' courage was " oozing
out at his finger ends." The National Anthem brought a most
pleasant entertainment to a close.
The accompanists were Mrs. Damp,
Miss Kepkey, Miss Maud Kepkey
ind Mr. W. Ross. Mr. Wallace
desires to return thanks to the public for such liberal support and to
the ladies and gentlemen who took
part in the programme.

(L.S.) ,. S. Y. WOOTON,
Registrar of Jolut Stock Companies.
The machinery for the R. E. Lee
and Maid of Erin is arriving.
Geo. Pfunder retains his interest
in the Colonna. Only his partner
sold.
An increase of eight men on the
Cliff and fifteen on the Josie. This
will do for a starter.
Some very j'ood rock carrying
$18 in gold is shown from the
Cambridge, in  ne south belt.
The holders of the Homestake
bond have met by appointment
the prospective purchasers at Spokane.
A sale at Spokane of large interests in the Josie places the commercial value of that property at about
$125,000.
John Lowering has sold the LU-
tle Pittsburgh group on the south
belt to a Victoria man for $5,000.
John is going to have a good time
now.
Geo. Hughes of Three Porks, gets
$50,000, of wh'ch $20,000 is cash,

and Covington Johnson, arc now
in San Francisco telling the bonanza kings about the mineral
wealth of Slocan, Toad Mountain
and Trail Creek.
J. B.-McArthur's mining interests are getting to be extensive for
one not primarily engaged in mining. He made a shipment from
the Rambler last week. He is also
offered a good price for the Idaho
No. 2.
The sale of the Cliff mine for
$150,000 and the Consolidated St.
Elmo for $75,000 will set that
much more money to circulating in
Kootenay. The owners are all
identified with this country and
will spend the money where they
made it.
In the Fool Hen—-adjoining and
lapping on the Rossland townsite—
John Stussi and Pete Genelle have
a very promising prospect. The
ledge is six feet wide and so well
mineralized that Mr. Stussi believes that a few hundred dollars'
worth of work will bring them to
shipping ore.

ABOUND   THE   CITY.
The Salvation Army.
F.  W. Bauer, a bold Salvation
Army scout stole within the gates
of the city a few weeks ago and escaping     without    being   hanged,
drawn and quartered, reported t°
the officers of tho army that there
were many sinners and piles  of
ducats in  Rossland.   Straightway
two detachments were ordered to
besiege the city.   One of the forces
is from  Vancouver, the  other is
from Spokane.   They entered  the
city without opposition  and now
occupy Donohue's citidel.    Ensign
Shea and Captain Jessie E. Milner
are in command.   Captain  Rams-
dell, Maud Davidson, Bessie Diamond and E.  Juhlen   are  brave
leaders of the warriors.   They propose to "hold the fort" until Monday.   The Salvation Army people
are pretty good people.   They are
inveterate solicitors, but are also
foremost in works of charity, and
the Prospector hopes  that their
labors in Rossland will be crowned
with as great success as they have
been elsewhere.
Not a dull day this week.

audience.
The fine cottage on LeRoi avenue
near Spokane street,, is being built
by John Stussi, and is t,o be occupied

and thankfully sing its praises.

HOW TO LIGHT OUB STUEETS.
What is Rossland going to do in
the matter of street  lighting this
winter?    Are we going to have the
electric light or find our way about
the streets by the light which comes
from the store windows?   There is,
.if Course, a possibility that one of
'he various parties now seeking to
put in an electric plant may succeed in doing so within  the next
inonth,and then again they may not.
With our systeYn of sidewalks and
crossings some kind of street lighting  is  absolutely  necessary.     As
gas is not possible and electricity is
not probable, there only remains
•■he   old-fashioned   method'  of oil
lamps.   These could  be placed on
posts at various points where they
would do the most good, and about
twenty would be sufficient for the
business portions of the town.    A
man to clean and light them could
be obtained at a small figure, as it
would  not  occupy more  than an
hour of his time every day, and the
lamps could be purchased at about
$2 each.    There are business firms
enough in the town to enable tin
matter to be carried out successfully—with a very small subscription from each,    Now, gentlemen,
don't put off this important matter
until the winter is half over.    Tht
lighting of  our  streets   will  be n
boon to every resident, an  attraction to every visitor, and a sourw
of pride to all who assist in instituting and maintaining the system.
THE UNBOKS CITY.
That there will be a city in
Kootenay whose population before
ten years from to-day will be toh.
with five figures, and that will be a
wholesale distributing and smelting center, is quite within the range
of probability.
It will be on a water course.
Rossland expects to become tjie
jeading mining and smelting city
of the district, but it is not in the
race for distinction as a distributing point. Revelstoke, Nelson and
Nakusp are aspirants. Revelstoke
is too far north and too far away
from the leading mines. Nakusp
has dragged sleepily along too long
to receive a rude awakening now.
Nelson is in the lead with its Government support, banks and a
smelter building. It is a favored
town. But even Nelson is not
secure. It was once frightened of
Slocan Siding, and is destined to
experience a greater scare in the
future. When the wealthiest corporation in Canada, the C.P.R.,
and the immensely wealthy smelting company, of Swansea, combine to build a city in Kootenay,
they will select a virgin tract
of ground, and will erect
thereon as extensive smelting
works as all others in Kootenay
combined. Wholesale houses, equal
to those of Winnipeg and Vancouver, and all the chartered banks
—being on the inside—will be
the first to select locations on the
new site, and the new city will be
ushered in with a population not
of hundreds but of thousands.
Where will it be? We do not
know. If the location is decided
npon it is kept a close secret in the
■offices at Montreal, London and
Swansea, but if we were seeking for
it we would rendezvous within five
miles of the junction of Kootenay
outlet and the Columbia river.
NEEDED   IMPROVEMENTS.
There are two or three much-
needed improvements that should
be taken in hand by our townspeople before the winter sets in. As
the Provincial Government is now
receiving a considerable revenue
trobl Rossland it is only fair that
we should look to the Provincial
Government to help us make the
town a little more pleasant as a
place of residence and our streets
safer for pedestrians on dark nights.
We allude to the yawning chasms
on our main street and the breakneck ladders and steps in our sidewalks, caused by the hurry which
the exigencies of the case demanded
when the houses were built and the
lack of anything like proper supervision by the authorities (whoever
they may be) when such a fine
thoroughfare was being created.
Everyone has been allowed to build
at his own sweet will and according to the then inequalities of the
foundation, and the consequence is
that every few yards one has to
ascend or descend a flight of steps.
This system is most dangerous after
the stores are closed and the streets
in darkness, and it will be surprising if the winter passes without
some accident occurring in this regard. But it can hardly be expected that the Government will
assist in giving us level sidewalks.
That might have been obtained at
the outset had the level of the
street (when graded) been taken.
What we want the Government to
do is to lay out a few hundred dollars in filling in the holes on the
main street. There is a huge cavity
right in front of the post-office. If
a stranger should happen to come
out from the glare of the lights on
a dark night when the snow covers
everything he might step off the
sidewalk to cross the street at that
point, and would be fortunate to
■scape a broken limb. It is really
lime that something was done towards grading Columbia Avenue.
Bow much longer is it to remain
in such a scandalous' condition?
Barring its width it is no better
than the wagon road to Trail, and
in some places worse. If the citizens do not make a move in the
matter they may rest assured that
the Government will not.
Another great improvement, and
one that cannot much longer be
delayed, is the opening of Washington street from Columbia Ave.
to the present schoolhouse, or at
ienst the laying of a sidewalk for
lhat distance. This would not only
give a straight road to the school,
• ■ut people would be able to find
their way to the Methodist church,
which at present is reached by devious back-ways and unsavory
alleys, and is hardly discoverable
except by the initiated. The Gov-
vernment should contribute toward
these improvements, and no doubt
would, were the matter brought to
its notice by a petition. It rests
with the citizens themselves to take
the first steps.
two weeks ago and appropriate
four acres of the reserve for a
building site and play - ground,
We believe that the trustees themselves are in favor of the plan.
It is feared by those who have
the interests of the school at heart
that no more than the $600 appropriated can be obtained this
year, but the Prospector has observed that in the matter of roads
and other public improvements,
where an actual necessity exists
for the use of more funds than
have been appropriated for that
specific purpose, the Government
has been able to "dig up" from
some reserve fund, or to anticipate
a future appropriation.
A necessity exists in Rossland
for a schoolhouse that Will cost
several times the amount of the
appropriation. The Government
can do as well in the matter of
schools as it docs in the matter of
roads. It can meet the necessities
of the case regardless of specific
appropriations, and we do not
doubt that if the citizens of Rossland present the facts and make a
persistent demand for sufficient
money to erect a schoolhouse they
will get it.

SCHOOL AND  SCHOOLHOUSE.
The trustees of the Rossland
school, Judge Newton, Geo. Taylor
and C. McNaughton, are giving
close attention to their duties regarding it, but their powers are
so circumscribed by statute that
they cannot accomplish anything in
the way of building until the Government comes to their assistance.
The appropriation of $600 is so
small as scarcely to be considered
at all. It wouldn't much more
than lay the foundation for the
four or six room school building
that Rossland will need by the
time such a building can be made
ready for use.
We have yet to find a person
who believes that the schoolhouse
should be built on the lots down
by the creek, which were offered
by the townsite people. Everyone
prefers a more elevated location.
The only townlots suitable are in
the northeast corner of the Thompson pre-emption. Unless lots are
given there, the Government will
please the people best by acting on
the suggestion of the Prospector of

When it became generally thought that
the viee-rega! party would visit the gold region
.if which. Rossland is the center the following
lines wero written by a resident as a mark of
respect to their Excellences:
O'er the ocean, up the lakes and rivers,
Through the hills and forests comes the noble
Earl of Aberdeen, with message frpm her
gracious Majesty'the Queen.
That this far
Distant part is not forgotten; that the
New-born village, with its sons and daugh'ers,
Is watched and guarded with keenest interest;
With as much attention as the proudest
City.   This the genius of the British
System:  Where'er our hag's unfurled, safety,
Ease and comfort reigns supreme.

Bonnie Scotland, come from Windsor Castle,
Ireland's friend and helper,   Come, seventh
Earl of House of Aberdeen; come, welcome
tlcrald of the Queen.
We are here to meet
Thee, we are here to greet thee for thyself .
And thy noble lady: foremost in the
Bright walks of peace; foremost in the raec for
Lifting up the weak and lowly, and in
Justice to all Subjects of the Empire,
Conic, o'er Rocky Mountains, thro' the Selkirk
Ranges, and the Arrow Lakes, in bosom
Of great cliffs and canyons; come to mountain
Sorges, view our life of pleasure..
Man is
Hover lonely standing on the benches
pf the mountains, with all gifts oi God in
Nature ever at his service.
Hark the
Falling waters, the singing birds, and the
Murmuring in-the brandies; sip the fragrant
Odors from the lfow'ers and bushes;
Feel the mellow breezes u p from the great
Pacific, like odors soft and tender
As to mottier's breath on infant.
Who can
Cease to love the mountains? emblems of
Great convulsions id the globe we stand on.
Love them for their beauty, love them for their
Grandeur, love then! for their wonder; ay, for
Something less deserving—for their gold and
Silver, heaved up thro' great Assures made by
Gases in the lakes and labyrinths, held by
Only three leagues deep of solid matter.
But the gold is precious for its beauty;
Ay, and for its uses—for it "answers   '
All things." Hence the hill that yields it we fall
Down and worship.
Tis not here iu sands and
Shoals drifted by the winds, die tides and
Freshets, but is housed in solid rocks, all
Standing without limit, for all the world
To ilock to, as shrine of worship!
Come, then,
Visit this our hamlet, weak in numbers,
But rich in gifts the gods have kept through
Ages, to be servants at a time most
Needed. I"1
And if 'tis thy wont, like to the
Inca king of old, conie, ijoble Karl of
Aberdeen, come now, and fill a spacious
Room with gold.

Mrs. Cumso (reading)-A butcher

The Indirect Benefits.
If British capital finds large and
satisfactory1 investment1 in the development of the immense and varied mining resources of the' province, the in^jreot benefits to other
enterprises of trade and business
generally must be very considerable, besides which the favorable
attention thus attracted to the
country will, undoubtedly, lead to
the investment of British capital
in the development of other of the
rieji natural resources of the province besides mining. This development of its recources by capital,
and the population that must follow, is just what the province
wants, and, if fully realized, must
inaugurate an era of real and substantial progress and prosperity
such as we have hardly yet had a
taste of.—Columbian.
