Last evening at !��.'24 the Str.
Kaslo arrived at and passed the
3rd Street wharf, towing barge
K. & S. No, 2 New Westminster
having aboard the locomotive No.
1 for the Knslo ife Slocan Railway;
and, then, for the first time the
long awaited ringing of the locomotive hell sounded upon the air
of Kaslo, and sent cheer to the
hearts of her citizens.
Everybody turned out to see it,
either an it passed the 3rd and 4th
St. wharves or after it had reached
the railway company's wharf in
the hay, where it was met hy Supt.
of Construction Ffolliott, Secretary
Robt. Irving of the K. & S. R'y

citizens. Draughtsman Wilse was

The barge had aboard, besides
fhe engine and tender, 100 tons of
rails, a carload of railroad spikes,
fhree hand cars and one iron car.
The railway officials say that,
traok-lajing will commence next
week���before the 15th at the latest.
Kaslo is at last getting a railway
���a real bona  fide railwav���built
for traffic; and not as was the
Nakusp line built for bluff.
And the builders will have the
iron horse hauling ore into Kaslo
from the rich Slocan mines at the
earliest possible moment.
Two more engines will be
brought in as soon as the work is
far enough advanced that they can
be of use,

Chas. Lundholm and his pettier went just after supper Monday
evening into upraise No. 3 in the
Blue Bell mine to go to work on
night shift. They were overpowered bv gas and fell, lodging part
way down the upraise. They were
gotten out quickly and every effort
made to resuscitate the,m; but,
while the partner recovered, Lundholm died in about ten minutes
after being taken out. He , was a

Kaslo extemporized a base ball
team Thursday evening which went
over the road the next day and
played the New Denvpr niiip oh
Saturday afternoon, getting what,
because of having had no practise,
they expected���defeat.
But the boys don't regret it at
all. The Denver team and citizens
gave them such a hearty welcome
���a reception the like of which
they say they had never seen���
treated them all the time in so
friendly a manner, banqueted them
at the close of the game, and gave
a most enjoyable dunce in the
evening: that the Kaslo boys think
the Denverites the best entertainers on earth.
A return game will be played in
Kaslo in the next two or three
weeks, when the Kaslo boys will
try to equal the hospitality of the
Denver boys.
A ball ground is being fixed up
in Kaslo and will soon be in shape
tor our boys to get a little practise.
Barrister Kerr Write* One  to  H|s   For-
i j
mer' Letter,
New dInver, J uly 28, '95.
To the Editor of the Puosvkctor,
Sir^���As your correspondent "Pioneer" has not the courage to sign
his name to his confession of faith.
I cannot notice him at present. I
always fight ill the open, and anyone who wishes lo meet me must
meet me there.. But the opening
of this subject in your columns
gives me an opportunity of adding
a postscript to my last letter,
which I hope by your kindness to
take advantage of.
I wish to ask il plain question.
Let us all clear our minds of cant,
and answer it to our consciences
like honest men and women.
Would West Kootenay bq better
off without these women than it is
with them?1 Here is the situation.
Every new mining' camp is first
discovered and opened by a number of hardy pioneers. These men
are nearly all of one class. They
are not married men, for married
men do not leave their wives and
families, and throw up good jotis
to try their chances in a new camp
hundreds of miles away. In most
cases their livelihood is so precarious that they would be fools to
marry, and criminals to have
children. Even if. they did wish
to marry, they preponderate so
much in numbers that the country
would have to be scoured for a
thousand miles around to find a
sufficient number of wives.
And now, what do these men do
for society? They go out into the
mountains, endure the greatest
hardships, and jften suffer disappointment. But their work as
pioneers enables a large class of
married men to bring in their
wives and children, and make a
living and a comfortable home.
Then these people, having all the
pleasures they want by their own
firesides, turn round and try to deprive the men to whom they owe
everything of the few pleasures
which it is possible for them to
I suppose pvery man in his
senses will at once admit that, if
all the women of every kind were
removed from West Kootenay,
there would still be plenty of un-
chastity left in the district. Only
the unchastity would take a more
debasing form. The man who
does not know that knows nothing.
The man who does know it, and
who yet equivocaf.es and dissimulates over a matter so vital to society, is a much more dangerous and
w.'cked man than the one who
draws a six-shooter in a bar-room
To those who admit the fact I
have mentioned, it must he clear
enough that nothing could possibly
be gained by ridding the country
of these women. But I go farther,
and say that the country would be
very much the loser by their absence. To many men the society
of these women is for years the
most refining influence in their
lives. Where there are many hun-:
dreds of men, a handful of married
women, and scarcely any unmarried women living in families, it is
clearly impossible for most of the
men to have any more than the
inost casual acquaintance with a
woman of the conventional class.
Yet nothing can be worse for a
man than to separate him for
years from the tender influences of
feminine society. Any woman is
better than   no   woman.   But  of

Silverton, July 3D. [Special to
the Prospector.]���Evidently my
last report was given little credence
by the large majority of your readers, the reason why being, 1 have
much reason for believing, that :-'
barlly bred public is more inclined
to heed the Blunders of a tin-horii
['capitalist" and all-around blackleg blatherskite than the simplest
truths of a humble but honest
sssayer. However, against neither
the'said tin-horn nor the said public do I hold any malice; for both!
have acted in accordance with the
natures of the beasts and different;
action could not reasonably ha, ye
been expected of them. Thomas
Ciirlyle, who certainly was pretty
well acquainted with the English
people, w-ns bold enough to say
that he believed them mostly fools:
and other philosophers of 'a 'more
cosmopolitan knowledge than he
have declared that 'the remark is
appropriately made of the citizens
of civilization. ' Coupling these
charges against the public with lhe
more common charge that "every
man has his price," we might be
inclined to conclude that the percentage of fools and knaves in
some countries is large enough to
pay for shipping.
But, for my part, though I think
the charges not groundless, I am
not a believer in total depravity,
nor do I believe in Universal de-
biiiity of the brain. 1 still oling
to my boyhood belief in the story
of Washington and his hatchet.
People are what they are as a result of their breeding and after environments,    and    I    as    firmly

called upon the writer for proofs of
his statements. The newspapers
were not by the story provoked to
any comment or investigation
whatever, but have preserved 11
stolid silence���and it was with
mtich reluctance that the merchants advanced the owners of the
big vein a small amount of food
and tools wherewith to begin development of it.
To the contrary, though nobody
whatever has even a shadow of
reason for doubting my statements,
it is generally asserted, with the
assurance of absolute certainty, in
tlie saloons, the stores and the
offices of the Slocan that I am a
fakir and that my story is a lie.
Verily we arc living in the deepest shadows of the "age of chivalry"
when reputations are held cheaper
than Chinese labor!
However, the day of vindication
and reaction is pot fur off; for the
public, though gullible, is not
malicious, and success never fails
to charm it,
The owners of the "L. II." believed my story nnd, getting grub
and tools, as well as securing the
services of three good miners to
assist them, they ut once began to
run a 60 foot tunnel to cross-cut

The work is now well along and
will shortly be accomplished.
Assays have been made as development progressed, showing
that instead of having only 17 feet
of shipping ore they have probably
iio feet more, or 40 feet of shipping
ore altogether.
Up to the time   of   my   former

Mrs. A. J. Becken
(Concluded from page 2.)
before them some half a dozen
lushed away, away to the Okanogan country, because they heard
���of a two foot vein of five dollar
yold quartz being struck there two
���or three years before.
And this week the're is a real
genuine Simon-pure excitement
-and stampede to the Fo'ot-of-the-
���Lake, thence to upper Springer
iind Lemon creeks. Fully 200
prospectors are there now, and
more nre going every day. The
���Str. Hlin.er carried dowh 3u prospectors the 24th.
Nor is Ihis rush to Springer and
Liiiion without good reason. Jn-
"ilced I do not know of any other
section in which so many good
strikes have been made in so short
a time. I think it quite safe lo
that nt least .r;0 prospectors nre
now interested in half that number of first-class prospects discovered on those two creeks within the
last three weeks. The ore is found
in porphry dykes in the granite1
and several assays of it have
shown above. 1,600 bzs. silver and
'$100 gold per ton. The ore is nil
high grade with very little galena
ami some copper. Some specimens of very rich native silver
and gold rock have been found.
A trail from the Foot-of-the-
Lake is to be built at once, a hotel
wili immediately be opened tit
Slocan City, a railroad will soon
lie built up from Slocan Siding���
such is Ihe talk, and everybody
feels sure of it.
Everybody is feeling better over
this way���and I think it would be
a shame if they did not.
J. M. M. Benedum.
We khow there is some gold in
the Red Mts. south of Silverton.
We believe there is an enormous
quantity; but liie Prospector
thinks Mr. Benedum a little too
soon in comparing the value of a
prospect to the value of a developed mine like the Slocan Star.
By the rule of estimating the value
according to the amount of ore of
known richness actually blocked
out, the Slocan Star is still worth
a large number of L. H.'si Value
should be measured in do.ll��trs ami
cents rather than in Treadwells
and Ilomestakes���don't make your
unit of value too large.
These Red mountains do offet' it
better field for the prospector' and
miner than Coolgardie or South
Africa; but, since they are so close
to us, actual smelter test will have
to be made before runny will believe, aud we hope that the owners
will soon make a Shipment to
some reliable smelter, as no doubt
they will do, and set all doubt at
B. C. Restaurant
Since we are handling the reins at the B. C. Restaurant alone things are  booming.       It  has  been
whispered (but not hy 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 ai present hath the hog train any horrors
for us. We use the BEST OF EVERYTHING, treat our customers ami 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 patronagei       Yours Respectfully,

(Concluded from front page.)
Vtiurse it is ridiculous to represent
these women as monsters of ini-
���quity. There are many perfect
ladies among them, and the man
who has never met with such has
missed an experience in life worth
Remember women are susceptible creatures, and are very much
what we choose to make them.   Let
���a man go to his lady friend and
i rent her always as a gentleman
���hoiild do, and he will find her  an I
'elevating and ennobling influence
in his life. Let him go to her with
i bottle of whiskey under his belt
and insult her, and he will drag
her down  quickly  enough   to   Hie
' i wn level.
It is because most women are so
suceptible to influence thut I say
they should always be treated respectfully, and never humiliated
by being made to exhibit thenar
i cives iii a criminal court. Tell b
woman she is degraded, rub the
fact into her whenever you have
lhe chance, uiul you will  scon suc-
"cced   in    making   her     tlegriided
'enough. Then take another woman, and always approach her
with respect, as you would your
mother or your wife: and, whether
.he be a prostitute or not, she will
be a good woman all the same, and
have a sweetening influence on
everyone who comes in contact
���.villi her. When this simple law
of nature is understood, we shall
bear no more of these revolting
exhibitions before criminal courts.
In conclusion, 1 would ask those
who still disagree with tne to read
i be first eleven verses of the eighth
chapter of the Gospel according to
St, John. Yours truly,   ,
R. B. Kkhk.
To the above, wc know not what
answer, if any, "Pioneer" may
choose to make.
Concerning the action of the
Kaslo authorities: it i" not theii
policy to molest thet'e women so
king as they remain in (heir own
���portion of town, but the matter
had received no atteHtion in so
long a time that these women were
lo be seen parading the streets in
all parts of the city displaying
their charms and bidding for custom���to the annoyance and disgust of respectability���and were
in the habit of going into business
houses and along tlie business
streets in loose costume. To check
. this nuisance the authorities took
the only effectual means at their
disposal, and acted with the approval of all who respect virtue.
This purpose accomplished, the
matter rests, as far as they al'e concerned, until the transgressors give
further annoyance and need further restraint.
Concerning the moral question
involved: I have neither time nor
space to discuss it with MeBsrs.
Kerr and "Pioneer." I do not say
that, under present circumstances,
Kootenay would be any better off
without these women. I would
only deny Mr. Kerr the privilege
of judging all men by the standard
he has chosen. Treat men as individuals, not as a mass. I admit
that when a man eats more of
animal food than is riquired to
give him strength for his work and
.fills up oni beer and Scotch (or
other) whiskey,)he needs and will
have a sewer���thus far, and thus
far only, do I admit Hie need for
-these women for whom l Mr. Kerr
plead*; howeve-jt, I not Only believe
but knoy that ������. man healthy in
mind and body, who exercises good
judgement in his eating, drink|ng
,'ind thinking is free from the
ihecessity oj committing one sin to
nvoid another.     ,   .
