Hot Springs News


The Hot Springs News was published in Ainsworth Hot Springs, in the Central Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, and ran for a little over a year, from September 1891 to October 1892. The News was initially published by John Houston, an outspoken journalist who would later embark on a successful political career, which included four terms as the mayor of Nelson and two terms in the provincial legislature. Houston left the News in May 1892, and the paper was subsequently published by David Bogle and Percy Whalley until October of the same year.
