What a  Correspondent   Thinks   of  the
Denver Luwyer's Letter.
Mr. R. B. Kerr is a lawyer who
iives in New Denver. The Tribune
is a newspaper published in Nel-
;son. In the latter there appears a
^communication a column in length
signed by the former. The subject is an episode which occurred
in the Kaslo police court a few
,days ago.
The writer says, "thirteen quiet,
-well behaved women were dragged
before  the court   (in Kaslo)   and
,compelled    to     make    the   most
i shameful confession  that   can   be
.extorted   from   a   woman,"    after
-which they were fined, etc.    These
women  were   summoned   upon   a
.charge of being either   keepers   or
inmates of houses of ill fame. They
���were proceeded   against  under  the
Dominion statute and   not   under
any city by-law.   They were  not
.compelled to  appear in   court   at
. nil.    Some of them did not appear;
. and in the case of thosp who  had
m  defense,   their   appearance   or
.otherwise was immaterial.    All of
the  thirteen   pleaded   guilty   and
.that they could do   by   proxy   as
-well  is  by   personal   appearance.
The regular  correspondent  of   the
'Tribune says  that   they   paid   or
promised the fines imposed, with a
.smile or laugh almost of derision.
Mr. Kerr says if they  had   been
prosecuted for selling liquor  without a license he would   not   have
said a word.    If Mr.  Kerr  knows
them all to be guilty of that offense
he   is   probably   better    informed
than   the   Chief   of   Police,    who
.should profit by the hint  and   remember where to look for  a  competent witness for the  next   occasion; but it may be remarked  that
. quieCwell behaved women do  not
sell liquor without licenses.
��� :   Mr. Kerr suggests that men who
:are frequenters of the houses  kept
by these women be prosecuted, but
_later in his letter he waxes hysterical over a report which he says he
has heard the effect that the  Kaslo
.authorities   really   do   intend    to
start on a "more extensive crusade,"
. and he appeals to the Anglo-Saxon
.: spirit    of    the    people   who   live
among these mountains and says
that they will form a combination
. for defense, &c.
Perhaps Mr. Kerr fears that the
Kaslo police in their hot pursuit
-of the frequenters of Kaslo houses
of ill fame will raid New Denver
and he would like an Anglo-Saxon
garrison at Bear Lake to hold
-them in check.
The cold facts are that no such
high tragedy was enacted in the
���police court as Mr. Kerr imagines
That gentleman is simply indulging the characteristics that he has
bo often exhibited in the law courts
and on the political platform, viz.:
that of getting his facts from his
imagination and supplying his
lack of argument by a whiningly
pathetic tone. His screed would
be unworthy of notice except for
the villainous slander against^ the
men of the district implied in the
remark that the wives and daughters of citizens would not be safe if
there were not prostitutes in the
-country. This is a statement grotesquely and gratuitously false, as
the women who were pioneers in
this country will not be , slow to
testify.   In every camp and town
respectable women have lived
months or years not only unmolested but in full confidence that
their safety was guaranteed by
every man in the mountains.
If there is a class of men in the
country now degraded to the level
that Mr. Kerr imagines, it is because the honour of womanhood
has been made cheap by the unbridled license that has been given
to prostitutes���a license to which
the Kaslo authorities appear to
have given a much needed check.
Mr, Kerr is fighting on the wrong
side. He should not allow his
sympathies to get the better of his
judgement. He should remember
that���
Vice is a monster of such hideous mein
That to be hated needs but to be seen,
But seen too oft the once repulsive face
We first endure, then pits*, then embrace.

Things-look-blue Lowery was in
town yesterday.
Rev. Procunier preaches in Kaslo
next Sunday, 11 a. m. and 7'30 p.
m. in Jackson Hall.
Capt. Roadley will take the ball
team to New Denver tomorrow, at
the urgent request of the Denver
boys to play ball with them Saturday.
Mr. Archer is expected to return
this week from the .Okanagan,,district where he lias been about three
weeks caring for his mining interests.
It would be more to the point
for the Nelson sprinter to cover the
Kaslo sprinter's money than quab-
ble about the place where the race
is to be "pulled off."
The smoke from the clearing of
the Kaslo & Slocan railway has
drifted over to Edmonton and has
reddened the eyes of the citizens of
that enterprising city.
Robertson church [Presbyterian]:
Sunday services, 11 a.m.; 7'30p.m.
Sunday School and Mr. G. 0. Buchanan's bible class at 2'30 p. m.
All are cordially invited.
Engineer Fielding is making a
survey of the town, establishing
a base line that is intended to be
permanent, and from which lines
may be run during all future time.
A public meeting is called for
Friday evening at the church to
consider organization of a literary
society and mock parliament to
run during the coming winter season.
A subscription from Nanaimo
and a request from a Montreal paper to exchange, arriving on the
same mail, are pointers indicating
how extended is the interest that
is being taken in Kaslo.
A daughter each to Mr. and Mrs.
Shannon and Mr. and Mrs. Alex
Sproat is a birth record that New
Denver is bragging about. The
Phospector wishes health, wealth
and happiness to the new arrivals.
A coroner's jury, after hearing
evidence regarding the accidental
death of Gustave Swanson attached
no blame to anyone. Deceased
was struck by a rolling log while
at work in one of the railway
camps.
Al Hoyt, of New Denver, has
started out to see the world and
when he has "viewed it o'er" will
decide on a new location. He
spent Tuesday night in Kaslo under the protecting wing of Geo.
Henderson.
That is what all who attended
said to those who were not present
at the concert in the Presbyterian
church last night.^The program
was pronounced the best that has
been presented to a Kaslo audience for a h>%lorig time, and to
the program committee, Mesdames
Keen and McPhee and Messrs.
Fawcett and E. Foyle Smith, is
due much credit! for this. The
ticket committee, Mrs. Kennedy
and Miss Cameroi, attended well
to the finances, wi h the result that
the concert netted jthe church upwards of $G5. THe many-colored
flowers-^principaTly pot plants of
Mrs. Livingstone'% and cut flowers
from Dave Kan|'s garden���and
other decorations which gave the
room such a beautiful, inviting and;
attractive appearance . were collected and arranged .by' Mesdames
Livingstone and. Kennedy and Miss
McGregor.
Mayor John Keen presided.

Col. Robert Irving, secretary of
the Kaslo & Slocan Railway Co. is
in a position to know a great deal
about the plans of railway and
other capitalists interested in
Kaslo and the mines of the Slocan.
He is one of those who firmly
believe that a smelter will be
erected and operated at Kas]o.
Mr. Irving does not vouchsafe
the information as to when work
on the smelter .will begin but the
inference is that it will be soon
after the completion of the Kaslo
& Slocan railway.
88,000 Reward.
Rewards aggregating $2,000 have
been offered for the capture of one
Symes who murdered Lewis A.
Conlee in Lincoln county, Wash.,
on the 24th of last month. He is
supposed to have escaped to British
Columbia..	
New Tunnel  on Alpha.
A tunnel has been started on the
Alpha about 300 feet below the
old . workings. It will be run
about 60Q feet to cross- cut the
ledge, -. ��� .
Mr. Briggs, one of the original
owners,, regards the running of
this tunnel as the most important
work yet undertaken in the Four-
mile district.

Water   Works    ami    a   New   Municipal
Building Tor Kaslo.
Mr. H. Pirn, representing the
Canadian General Electric Company Ltd., is expected in shortly
with estimates for supplying the
city with water.
It is understood that the idea is
to supply the city with pure water
from the lake pumped by electricity generated by the power now
running to waste on Kaslo river.
A question has arisen as to
whether the same generator could
not be employed to light the city
and thus earn sufficient to meet
the current running expenses and
repairs.
If such can be accomplished it
will certainly be a great boon to
the citizens and and an inducement to many to build who are
now waiting developments only.
MUNICIPAL BUILDING.
We understand the.drawings are
nearly complete for the new municipal building which the council
propose to erect at the corner of
Front and 4th streets.
When complete the accommodation will be as follows:
On the first floor, clerk's office,
police court, fire hall, firemen's
reading and smoking room, police
office and through the latter will
be the passage to 10 cells  for   the
tion. She spoke nicely and made
hers one of the best numbers on
the program.
6. "Love's Own Song," sung
with excellent expression in a
melodious Voice, by MrB. Keen.
Mr. W. M. McKeracher gave the
Frenchman's Version of the fall of
Adam and Eve. The piece was
humorous, arid Mr. McKeracher's
French dialect recitations are always well rendered.
8. A solo sweetly sung by Mrs.
McPhee.
9. A pianoforte duet by Mrs.
Keen and Miss Twiss merited and
received a hearty encore to which
they responded by repeating some
of the best portions of the piece.
10. Solo by Miss Minnie Brown,
which was also encored.
11. Miss Lindgren's recitation,
rich in tender sentiment as shown
in the lowly life of two orphan
children, and so excellently���we
might say perfectly���spoken.
That Miss Carney's'exhibition of
Indian Club Swinging was appreciated .was evidenced by the hearty
encore she received. It, alone, was
worth the price of an admission
ticket.
Mr. Twiss' solo, a sailor's song,
was well received, and he had to
respond to a merited encore.
15. Reading, Rev. Procunier.
16. Mrs. Jardine and Miss
Maggie Ediams sang a beautiful
duet.
A solo, in a rich and very strong
voice, by Miss Twiss, ended the
program.
Cod save the Queen.
Contractor Stewart presses the but
tonthat will send a current of
electricity through the half-carload
powder he has placed in a drift
behind a huge ledge of rock which
stands in the way of the railroad
around Payne mountain there is
apt to be a tremor that will rattle
the glasses and make the bartenders seasick^	
The Moguls.
"They did not talk much but
bat went through to Kaslo,"' says
a Nelson dispatch to the Spokane
Chronicle relative to the visit of
Vice-President Shaughnessy and
feupts. Marpole-and Abbott.
Probably the Kaslo & -Slocan
Railway, which they can neither
crush nor control, has impressed
them with the fact that it is not a
time to talk but to act.
The Lcland.
Under the management of James
Delaney the Leland enjoys a steady
trade. The new $100 refrigerator
which Jim put in a short time ago
pays for itself every fortnight, and
his free lunches are obtaining more
than a local reputation. The Leland is a house the most fastidious
can patronize.
Oxyilonor.
Allpersons interested in the Oxy-
donor "Victory," a machine that
cures' disease without medicine,
will find the agent from Spokane
at Mrs. Taylors Lodging House,
Kaelo, where all questions will be
answered. A machine on exhibition and orders taken.
F. M. Gibson and E. G. Smidt
have returned from Grizzly creek
where they have some mining properties which are looking well.
They were 20 miles beyond the
head of Kootenay lake, and while
out encountered two or three other
prospecting parties.
Si Robinson, the actor at the
Kaslo Theatre, was happily surprised Monday evening when Mr.
Holland, in behalf of every other
member of the company and attache of the theatre, stepped on the
stage and presented him with an
entire new Buit of clothes. The occasion was Si Robinson's 50th
birthday. He was overcome with
emotion at this manifestation of
the regard of his friends.
ity" oe"un-wise eiiougt
On the second floor there will be
provided a council chamber, committee room, and two other rooms
useful for a barrister or other professional man to rent. There will
also be a large public room 46 ft.
x 27 ft. which can also be made to
produce a little revenue.
The council hope to completely
finish the building this year before
they go out of office, but if on o'ose
examination of their income, in
September it is found impracticable, then provision Will be made
to enable the future council to complete the building with the minimum of expense.
Bids will probably be invited
some time next week, and on Saturday week we hope the bid of
some fortunate home contractor
will be accepted and work proceed
at once,	
Thirty Bridges.
Plans for over thirty bridges are
being drawn in the Kaslo office of
the draughtsman for the Kaslo &
Slocan railway. Of this number
the longest one���420 feet���was described in a former issue. There
will be three "other notable structures, built on the Howe truss
plan. The one across Kaslo creek
above the 15-mile house will have
a span of 60 feet. The Payne slide
will be crossed by a Span of SO feet,
while the longest span of all will
be 140 feet and will-be across Carpenter creek between Sandon and
Cody a short distance below the
Noble Five slide. Timbers for
these bridges are now being transported to the several localities and
excavations are being made for
solid foundations on which to place
the piers.

THE'. PROSPECTOR
BY  W.   D.  PRATT.
The Northport News has doubled
its size in keeping pace with the
-growth of its town.
The Tribune indulges in a good
'ileal of croaking about the Prospector. It is the hit bird that
flutters.
The coarse  paragraphs   appearing weekly in the  Nelson Tribune
are unquotable as they would  dis-
��� grace any respectable paper.
That mono-metallists lack confidence in their position is evident
from the manner   in   which   they
' seek to confuse the people as to the
'true issue.
If reports are true, three more
papers will be started in Kaslo   in
' a few days.' We haven't learned
what lunatic asylum the projectors
'escaped from.
The   Miner    says     Forty-Nine
' creek bears in its name the date of
its discovery.    More likely  it  was
'discovered in the early 60's by  one
'.of California's '49-ers.
The Nelson Miner is publishing
a serial containing a full account
of the progress and present condition of the Kootenay mines. It
will be a valuable addition to the
literature on that subject.
. There are questions of special
interest to Canadians and other
questions which are of special interest to Americans, but the question which deals with   the  pockets
' and property values of each alike
is the financial question.
MORE RAILROAD BUILDING.
That the C. P. R. contemplates
more railroad building in Kootenay will not be doubted. It will
probably ber-in three sections. 1st,
Three Forks to Sandon. 2nd,
Sproats Landing to Trail creek.
3rd, Slocan Siding to Slocan City.
It will then lack only the 16 miles
from Denver to the foot of the lake
of having an all rail line from
Nakusp to Trail.
NOT HARD TO LEARN.
Is the monetary subject too abstruse for the common, every-day
man to understand? Is it necessary that a man should be a
hanker to obtain an intelligent
idea of a question which concerns
him so deeply? Is the banker any
better qualified to steer the finan-
cial ship than men who do not
trade in money?
These are questions that are being asked every day by thousands
of people.
There  are two  Bets  of  replies
furnished to them.   Those who are
interested in maintaining the present state of affairs insist that the
, .subject WSi complex one, incapable
of   being   comprehended    by    an
ordinary man, and that only those
who have made a business of deal-
. ,ing in money can be   expected   to
discourse   intelligently   respecting
matters affecting money.
,   The London "Statist," a prominent organ of the banking class of
T3^rjjgBrigJra��^fepeatedly urged the
'."jlae^ffraf^the question of the Btanf.

Wttd*fci
d   have   on   more
n assented to this
f is no good ground
for accepting it. No evidence can
be adduced to show that acumen
of the peculiar kind necessary to
receive deposits and successfully
discount notes and loan money in
other fashions fits a man to decide
the value of a standard. He may
do all the things pertaining to
banking and still be utterly ignor-
norant of the first principles of the
science of money.
A banker's relations to money,
as a rule, are the same as those of
a grocer to sugar. The grocer in
buying and selling the commodity
referred to keeps well informed
concerning the markets and is prepared to take advantage of them,
but it rarely happens that he
makes an accurate study, or any
study at all of the causes operating
and which may affect prices in the
remote future.
It is not necessary to the success^
ful conduct of a wholesale grocery
business that' the grocer should become intimately acquainted with
the laws promoting beet-sugar culture in Some countries, or those
which deter the importation of
cane sugar into other countries.
It. is not part of his vocation td
narrowly watch all of the chemical
discoveries with a view of determining whether beet sugar may be
manufactured so cheaply at some
future day as to preclude the possibility of cane sugar being raised
in successful competition with it.
Abstruse inquiries of tliis kind
he leaves to students. With him
sugar is a question of today, tomorrow, or at the outside two or
three or six or eight months. If
he can calculate correctly for such
brief periods he succeeds.
The banker's motto, like that of
the grocer, must necessarily be
modeled on that of the French
king who laid down the rule that
the present Was only to be considered, for after him might, come the
deluge without disturbing his
serenity. ���
The banker, like the broker, can
make money on a rising or falling
market, and therefore he needs not
concern himself about the remote
contingencies, and aB a rule he
does not.
If he does, then lie steps outside
his business and adopts the methods of ord inn ry students, for there
is nothing in the daily routine of a
baiik which can help him to solve
the important problem whether the
world is better off with an appreci-

uting measure of value or one that
has some claim to be regarded as
stable.
There is no source of information
bearing on the money question
which the banker possesses exclusively. He does not collect the
-statistics of production of the pre-
'jions metals or their consumption.
He does not even take the trouble
to keep close account of their transfer.   The people do that for him.
If the people were to withhold
the information bearing upon the
:money question which their servants gather, the banker would be
"wholly in the dark, for it would be
impossible for bankers to organize
���a bureau which would furnish approximately trustworthy intelligence. Their conflicting interests
would prevent anything of the
kind.
It is only disinterested students
:and statistical bureaus carefully
'operated by men responsible to the
people for any misrepresentations
they might make who can furnish
"data from which satisfactory con*
'elusions may be drawn.
There are doubtless plenty of
bankers who are well informed
upon the subject of money, but all
"such must have derived their
knowledge from the study of broad
facts. Their narrow experience as
money borrowers or lenders could
not equip them to decide a ques-
* tibn that touches the whole world,
"" and1 tne literature of which is   as
* extensive as the history of all time.
If you, my reader, or I, wish to
"studythe question; wfe have exactly the same facilities aS the
''hanker. The statistics he must
"use, the facts he cannot avoid considering, are as procurable by us
: us by him.

As to the inferences, the reader
may draw such as he pleases. We
are all given headpieces. Some
know how to use theirs better than
others, hut he who uses his at all
must certainly be a better man
than the one who takes his opinions ready made from an interested source.
It is from this interested soUrce
that we have been too trustfully
accepting all our ideas about
money for many years.
But we have not escaped the
penalty of being too credulous. We
have reaped a heavy crop of adversity because of our indifference.
While we have slept the enemy
has been busy. He has sown tares
in our wheat, the tares of inextinguishable debt, but as he deals in
tares of that kityl he does not repine because the harvest iB a heavy
one.
It is for the people to determine
whether the attempt to eradicate
the tares shall be mftdei ;

B. C. Restaurant
Since we are handling the reigns at the B. C. Restaurant alone things, are booming.       It has been
whispered (but not by angels) that we were liable to take a trip on the hog train, but not so long as we
continue to receive the liberal amount of patronage we have at present hath the hog train any horrors
for us. We use the BEST OF EVERYTHING, treat our customers and everyone else the best we
know how; and are prepared to get up especial dinners for small parties at short notice, in good style
and at reasonable price.       Hoping to receive your patronage.       Yours Respectfully,

Here is a very good illustration
��of how reports travel and spread
jfill over the country.
Up to three months ago not a
-word had been spoken or written
for many years about a telegraph
line to Alaska. About that time
-the Prospector interviewed Mr.
Wilson, Supt. Western Div. C.P.R.
telegraph, regarding telegraph construction in British Columbia, and
.elicited from him some remaks concerning the advisability of repairing the old line to Fort Stager and
continuing it to Juneau, Sitka and
(the Yukon.
Copies of the Prospector containing this interview were mailed
to Alaska papers. It was just
what our Alaska brethren had
been waiting for and under the glaring headlines;
"ALASKA TELEGRAPH LINE.
Notice is hereby given that thirty days after
the date hereof we shall apply to the Bonrd of

A REALITY,"
The article was reproduced and
.commented on by the Sitka Alaskan, of May 18th, due credit being
given to the Prospector.
The scare headlines in the Alaskan attracted the attention of the
Seattle and other coast papers.
They took up the subject and dis-
pussed it. From them it reached
the interior papers, and last week
the laggard Nelson Tribune got
hold of it. Thus in two months
was the circuit completed; from
Kootenay to Alaska, thence to Seattle, thence to interior points,
thence to Kootenay again.
The incident illustrates how reports will travel when once committed to the types, and how much
the Prospector is in advance of
the Tribune.
