In h Position to Compete

"He 's ail right." That is what
Jhe people of Kaslo think and say
about A. Guthrie, the friend and
leading contractor of Jim Hill, the
man who is building the Kaslo &
Slocan railway, Mr. Guthrie remained in and about Kaslo two
weeks, and just before starting east
to attend to his larger interests
said, "I am going to leave the
building of this road with Charlie.'
Now, Charlie is not a mere lad, as
one would think from the old
gentleman's expression, but an
experienced railroad builder himself. Charles Ffolliott built 80
miles of road in Minnesota last
year. He is now superintendent
of construction, paymaster and
general Ty-ee of the Kaslo & Slocan railway.
Several nationalities are represented among the sub-contractors
Jas. McDonnell is a Sentchrpnn,
Jim Welsh an Italian, Pat- Welsh
an Irishman, and so on.
Tbe contracts between the chief
.contracting firm and the sub-contractors were signed a few hours
before Mr. Guthrie's departure.
Jas. McDonell gets the 3 miles nearest town and already has about
100 men shoveling dirt. Jim
Welsh, the Italian, whose original
name was Welcke or something
like that, has the next three miles.
His partner is Jacketta. They
graded the five miles of the Nelson
.& Ft, Sheppard from Fivemile
point to Nelson. They have
hauled their dump-carts and
several loads of supplies out to
(their camp about 4 miles from
��own. Pat Welsh has the next
$ miles. Then conies Cameron &
Porter with 6 miles; McLean, Mc-
Beth & McLean with 9 miles; J.
W. Stewart with 3 miles. They
have all gone across the boundary
to ship in their equipments, and
.are expected to load the Str. Nelson
down Saturday night. Jack
O'Leary has 3 or 4 miles on the
other end of tho line. As he hatl
hut a short distance to move his
outfit, he is now on the ground,
waiting for the engineers to get
through locating. A njw line has
been run from Bear Lake to Sandon, which keeps on a nearly level
grade and is several hundred feet
higher above Three Forks than the
.old survey.
The bridging, tie and track] ay-
ing contraots are let to Porter Bros.
There will be abuut a dozen
tfamps along the line, and the
number of men will be little less
than a thousand. The 15th of
��very month will be pay-day.
Dave McBeth is considered the
most original character on the
Works. His quaint sayings would

of Minor Interest.
That there is renewed interest in
the Lardo country is evidenced by
the fact that representatives of
about all the chartered companies
operating in Kootenay have either
been there the past week or are going soon. The Dominion government, too, is taking an interest in
that section. A gentleman of this
city recejyed word, yesterday, from
Mr. Mara that the government had
ordered an miginepr to proceeed to
the Lardo-Duii^an river, examine
it thoroughly and report on the
feasibility of making it navigable

The First Accident.
The first accident in connection
with the construction of the railway occurred yesterday. A man
known as Overland Joe, an old
stage driver, who has been working in restaurants this winter,
while driving a 4-hnrse team for
Jim Welsh was thrown from his
seat by the wagon striking a
stump. A wheel passed over him,
breaking bis leg and crushing his
chest. A- physician was called.
The unfortunate man is at the
Lakeview. He is 56 years old and
the chances are against his re
covery.
Welcome Alberta.
Tho new steamer Alberta arrived
at Kaslo Wednesday evening, and
was met at the landing by a large
concourse of citizens, headed by the,
Kaslo band, it being the lirst appearance of the latter. The'firing
of cannon (dynamite) was a feature of the ovation tendered the
Steamer,
On board were Geo. Alexander,
capitalist, owner; Capt. Hay ward.
Purser Wau^h, attended by other
officers and crew. Among the passengers were J. D. Marsden of Pilot
Bay and Jap King of Silverton.
A large number of landsmen and
landswomen went aboard and inspected the fine furnishings.
After three cheers for the Alberta,
three cheers for Capt. 'Hayward
and three cheers for the Kasiti
bai.d, the crowd dispersed. THE '��� PROSPECTOR
BY  W.  1).   PRATT.
Opinions   may    differ     as     to
ivbether R. B. Kerr, of   New   Dent
Ver, isn't developing a   remarkable j
agility in   getting  down   on   the
wrong side of the   fence   whenever i
a political campaign comes   along, i
but there will be no   difference   of
opinion as to his   having acquired
the distinction of being the leading
political speaker in Kootenay.
,  As such his opinions on the approaching Dominion   election,   as
it concerns this district; arc interesting. 9 ' ''
'   When asked whether he favored
u convention for   the   purpose   of
nominating an independent candidate,   he   unhesitatingly   replied.
that he was not in favor of it.   He
went on to say that there   is   not1
room in this district for three can- j
(delates to run, and that  there are
not    three   available   candidates, i
That it must be a direct   issue   be- j
tween free trade   and   protection, j
with Bostock as the leader of   the j
forces on one side and Mara on the
'other.   He further said   that   no
man could properly   canvass   this���
large district���including Yale-Car-
i.bou and East and West  Kootenay
-at an expense of less than   five
thousand dollars, and that Bostock
and Mara are the only   men   who
have or can secure that amount   of
money to spend.

B. KERR
WHICH SHALL IT BK?
Edward Meek says in the Canadian Magazine: Canada is eyi;
dently destined to be a nation of
two languages at least. The loss
or suppression of either the French
laYjguage or the English language
would'be a calamity to civilization.
A nation withtwo such languages,
as the English and the French is
far ��� richer intellectually than a
nation with only one language.
The Manitoba representatives
say: One flag, one language,4'one
school. '��� '���
WIIICKK DOBS KOOTKNAY COME   IN?
The Prospector pleads guilty to
having violated at different times j
one of the plainest rules of,  news-|
paper etiquette.   It has done this
in common with every other news-,
paper in the district.   The offense j
consists in referring to the editors:
or publishers of   other   papers   by -
name, or as the editors or the pub- ]
Ushers, when etiquette requires that ���
only the paper itself should  be  re--
forred to.   The rule   is   that   the i
editor and the publisher sink their
identity in the   paper.   It   is   all j
right for the N. Y. Herald to call j
the N. Y. Sun,  a  vile  and  dirty j
sheet, but it would not be right for
it to call Chas. A. Dana a vile and
dirty man.
This matter of personal criticism
and abuse between editors may be
interesting to readers but it is
liable to be curried too far. Here
is a recent instance:
The Rossland Miner says: Where
in the world did Senator John L.
Wilson find out that we are a people who believe in free trade? It
would be easier for him to find a
gold bug in the state of Idaho than
a free trader in West Kootenay,
always excepting the editor of the
Nelson M iner who i? a free trader
because he was born one. He is a
good example of what scientists
call arrested development. His
mental development was arrested
when he left the shores of merry
Epgland, no longer merry, worse
luck, but in a most grievous slough
of ruined agriculture, falling wages,
and increased pauperism, and he
has never iearnt anything since.
We are not denying but what
the Rossland Miner says in the
above paragraph may be literally
true; we only quote it as an instance where personal journalism
is carried t"b far. The Rossland
Miner should have contented itself
by .saying that the Nelson Miner
is an example of arrested development, and left out all reference to
its editor. In every newspaper
office, editors, publishers, reporters
and everyone connected with the
paper go to make up the paper.
It represents them all. They are
to the world as though they were
Hot. The paper alone is responsible and subject to criticism.
There are, of course, editors who
in ay be criticised or commended
^personally,   That is because they
The estimates just submitted to
parliament show some very substantial reductions���as far as the
Northwest is' concerned, the
mounted police vote being reduced
$155,000, while* the total reduction
on Northwest government, mounted
police and Indians is $241,825.
The total reduction:from the total
vote of last year is about a million
and a half, but to this amount is
yet to be added the supplementary
estimates. As the estimates do
not include any sum for the Hudson Bay railway, it is altogether
likely' that at the close of the session, while economy has been studied with regard to the Northwest,
it will be found that it was only
that more lavibh expenditures
might be made elsewhere. Our
old friend the Trent Valley canal
figures to the amount <tf $803,000,
the Soulanges canal $450,000 and
the total of canals for $2,527,420.
There is no additional amount
sufficient to complete the Edmonton bridge even after the town puts
up the $15,000 asked in cash. But
the $25,000 of last year appears ns
as a remote and probably we ought
to be thankful for that.���Edmonton Bulletin.

The lliUHli Fires.
Monday,' three distinct fires
raged in timber, in dangerous
proximity to town. - There- had
been several calm, drying days.
On the day mentioned giists of
wind Came up and caused fires
which till then had been submissive and harmless 'to spread rapidly. All the forenoon men were
righting the fire in the dry timber
which surrounds the school house
in its new location, the residence of
Geo. Kane, and the. village wbich
has recently sprung up in their j
vicinity.
Shortly after noon an alarm, was
sounded by the, mill   whistle   and
responded to by the Kaslo fire  department, tmd volunteers,   A bush
fire was getting  dangerously   near
the sampler,   threatening  to  envelope it with   a   cloak   of   flame,
The fire  was  easily  warded  off.
Two or three cabins in the  ravine
above   the   mill    Were    burned.
Meanwhile  dense  smoke   arose
on the hill above the town and' as
'it partially obscured  the  sun  a
pallor���a   pale    atmosphere���o'er
spread the town, all  the  inhabitants of which   appeared   in   the
streets watching the  unusual  occurrence: as we  might  fancy   the
inhabitants   of Pompeii watching
-the volumes  of Btnoke  and   lava
'roll  down  the  mountainside  on
that fatal day that has  been  the
inspiration   of   many   articles   of
prose and song, not  the   least  of
which is McCauley's Last Days of
Pompeii, beginning:   Hear, fairest
Italy     Some of the   descendants of the few who escaped   that
day from Pomp iii are now shoveling   dirt  on   the   Kaslo & Slocan
railroad and are enveloped  by the
smoke from our   bush-fire  which
has now swept through all the timber between tbe creek and   David
Kane's house, the latter being easily saved by back-firing.
of the timbers seems to be wholly
without ' foundation. Tbere : Was
nothing to indicate that the timbering was at fault. Manager McDonald states that just before coming ont of the mine the night 'shift
put 'in some heavy shots and when
these went off it broke down' an
immense amount of ore, An unusually large cbunk of solid ore
seems to have struck and broke
one of the cappings on the upper
floor. Having started, noticing in
theshape of timbers could stop it,
and every floor was carried away
to the bottom.
The damage was not heavy.
In less than two days everything
was running smoothly as usual.���

Mr, Jas. Shields,
Kaslo, R. C,
Dear  Sir:���I   arrived   here  on
Feb. 8th.   It was a long trip but a
very pleasant one.   What I see of
the country I don't like.   It is very
hot���120 ih the shade.   Water  is
scarce and bad.   Water varies in
price from 6 cts. to 25 cts. per gal.
Beer is nearly as cheap.   Otherwise the camp is very   reasonable
in charges.   Tbe mining camp  is
150 miles from us  yet,  that  will
take us to the center of the gold
fields.   From Sydney to Fremantle
is 2,400 miles; from Freemantleto
(Coolgardie 400 miles.   There  are
.stages running from   here  to  a'l
parts.   Customs   and   everything
strange, but I am catching on fast.
They estimate that there are 18,000
tnen on the fields, and I   am   sure
three-fourths of them  are   broke.
What I can bear about the mines
there is more boom there than gold.
English capital is paying  for  it.
Fever is very bad here���dying like
sheep.    Coolgardie   is  a  typical
mimng camp��� all canvas.    ������__
We are anticipating a  trip  90
miles tomorrow for prospecting. In
the next letter I can tell you   more
About it. Yours Truly,

THE .WORSHIP   OF  GOD   A.NU  MAMMON   ACCOMPLISHKP.
When  the   Yankees   first   started
their nation
They felt   they   were   creatures
of dust
And they freely acknowledged their
weakness
In their motto, "In God we trust."
And   so   firm   were   they   in  the
conviction
That the Lord was their  staff
and their rod,
���That they Stamped on  the face of
their, dollars
Their faith and belief in their God.
But they soon  grew too  busy to
worship
In the tedious fashion of old
So,   to   fix   up   the   matter  with
conscience,
They transferred  their  faith  to
their gold.
And now they all worship by proxy,
In a way that is easy and odd,
For they put their   trust   in   the
dollars���
And the dollars trust in their God.
A llenimicable  Advertisement.
The advertisement of Turner &
Kirkpatrick printed in large type
in the Nelson Tribune is so different from the usual advertisement
us to be worth reproducing. It
reads:
Hardware. Just arrived from
Montreal a carload of hardware
via the Great Northern railway,
only two weeks on the road, the
quickest time on record. And
right here just note the dpference
in dealing with a concern managed
by a plain everyday business man
and the concern at whose head
utands a bloated knight (thepomp-
.ous Yankee knight of her majesty's
realm, who has foresworn the country of his birth for Canadian
wealth and British honor?)' who
expects his fellow citizens to fall
down and worship him and patronize the C. P. R., the most
gigantic institution of legalized
robbery that ever existed in this
,or any other civilized country; the
latter takes 30 dayn to bring freight
600 miles, 20 miles per day, and
tinder a compliment to get it at aH;
while the former brings it 3,000
miles in 15 days, and everything
in first-class order. To prove the
truth of the above statement call
jind see, etc.
