When completed,  the new smelter will treat the ores  of the company's mines and such  other mines within a leasonable  radius as will bo found convenient.  To a'Province representative .YMr.  Nylin said his company now owns  twenty-seven claims iii the vicinity  of Golden and was operating three  camps which gave employment to  about fifty men.  THE COST OK THE N1CW S.Mi;) TJCJJ  will be in the neighborhood'Jf $20,-  000 and it, will be comi/jeted in  about three month?., Th^smelter  will be equipped to treat silver-lead,  gold and copper ore?, and while it  is primarily designed to handle the  ores mined by the company, its  capacity, will be su/Iicient. to treat  all the ore likely to offerAiithin  workable distance. "'In fact," said  Mr. Nylin, "wc already have  su/Iicient promise of business from  neighboring mines to keep the furnace busy. Our smelter will be  run with .'water power, and is designed to be operated with the most  careful regard to economy. We  will save, for one thing, the expense  ,of fuel'and firemen." c  -      , WATKK POWEIt   ' ;  for'running the new smelter will be  drawn from Hospital Creek, a  stream which flows in the neighborhood. The conduit will consist  of a' ditch about two-thirds of a  mile long; and "some 800 feet of pipe.  The necessary pipe for tho conduit,  as well as- material for the proposed  buildings, .will bo 'purchased by  Mr. Nylin in Vancouver, and will  be shipped this week. * , ��������� '  ' "In connection .with the smelter  site,", continued Mr. , Nylin, i:we  have demarked ' v,  ,' ���������' " "a TOWNSITE ', ���������" -e  called North Go'l'dcn, where 200, Jots  have already been surveyed. Up  to'datc our company has expended  about $45,000 on mine '.exploration  and investment, and if things turn  out as present prospects indicate, it  is our intention to erect an aerial  tramway, ata cost of about $25,000  next spring."  The company is- also erecting a  three story building in Golden, in  which it will  ' COXJJUCT A STOKE  on the co operative plan.  ���������One apartment of the building is  to be set apart for a newspaper, to  be known as the Golden Star, which  will be issued weekly.

'It  should be improved as ' soon as  possible. There are no city funds  available for the work, and if there  were the city would not be justified  in expending civic moneys on what  is not a public street. The city has  repeatedly been reminded of this  by the C.P.P.. who claim the street  as their private property. Yet it is  lhe only means of access to the rail  way station. It is clearly the duty  of the C.P.R. to keep this road in  good condition, and no doubt if  representations are made lo Supt.  Kilpalrick by tbe City Council 'he  will take steps to have the road  improved. A few cars of cinders  dumped along the road would greatly  improve it. Wc suggest the City  Council take the matter up,at tonight's meeting and appoint a  deputation to wait on Supt. Kiipat-  rick in regard to the matter.  ,\nd  n. c.' ma tens  I'AYMKXT.

Mr. Rosenberger and tlio Kxcliange  have done much, to promote the  best interests of ihominingindustry,  of (he province. They have persistently refused to have anvlhine-  to do with properties other than  those of merit and they have never  lent themselves to wild-cat miningor  wild-cat townsite schemes. Jntakind  this stand they have given offence  to parties, and interests whose  methods are any thins but creditable to them and this is one reason  why they have been made the subjects of unscrupulous at tack.', A  mining 'enterprise backed by Miv  Rosenberger or���������,theMines Exchange  will always be found .bona title and  well worthy of examination.

This trail  LEAD MINING.  Manager Roy, of Silver Hill  mine, says of the best means of  improving the silver-lead industry:  "China and Japan should be oiir  market'for both silver and lead,  and if this country "is willing and  goes about the matter properly we  can capture the market offered to  our ��������� hand by the trade of the  Orient.  "Today tho price of lead is about  #24 a ton to us, not as much as we  pay for a ton of oats to feed our  horses, but.aboul the price of hay.  This is caused by the lead trust  and the' combination of smelters in  the great republic lo the south of  us, where the mine owners get oi  cents for their lead. How can wc  work with such a difference in  prices, especially as their mining  and transportation charges are  lower than our own ?  "What ve really  need, lo revive  the industry and keep il on proper  basis,so that we ��������� can ,work   right  along, and what wc must  have   or  else shut down qur mines  is three-  quarters of a cenlper pound bounty  to make us two cents, and then,  1  am sure, we   could   work   all our  tnincs: -The government at Ottawa  have gone to great expense to push  all kinds of   industries,   and   J do  not see why they   would   not help  us open up our mines so as to allow  -us to  compete with the world and  al the   same   time   create a great  market   for   all   kinds of   eastern  products."'  WASTING AWAY.  The Sad Condition Of Many Young  Girls.  f i  Mothers Should be very Careful When  Their Daughters Complain of ���������  Headache. Fickle 'Appetite,  or Heart Palpitation.  Many mothers neglect the health of  their growing daughters.   Not wilfully  of course, but,because they think   the  occasional headaches from which they  suffer, fickleness of appetite, and   pale  cheeks, an* the natural   result of   the  merging of girlhood into  womanhdy^l...  Tii is is a serious mistake.   There is'no'  period   in a girl's life when she   needs  more   attention, and unless the   little  troubles nre successfully treated, more  serious  ones���������perhaps   decline     and  consumption���������are     sure    to     folioiv.  What   every young girl needs at   this  period   is a tunic  medicine that   wi  give   her' a rich,   red   Mood,   strong  nerves,' and bring her safely   through  a critical period in her life.   For   this  purpose there is no other in the world  can   equal Dr. Williams'   Pink   Pills.  Thousands   of girls throughout   Canada   owe   their    present  health   and  happiness     lo   this   medicine,     and  thousands of others who arc   suffering  would   soon ho strong   if thev   would  give   Dr:   Williams'Pink*Pifls a   fair  trial.'

Miss Beamer says: ���������  "Sonic year? ago J became very ill,  and my friends feared I was going  into a decline. I was pale; suffered  from terrible headaches; my appetite  was poor, and I grew very thin. I  became so weak that i could hardly  walk. J remained in this condition  for several months,1 during which  time I tried ..several medicines, but  none helped me in ihe least. Then  my mother got me some of Dr.- Williams' Pink Pills, and almost from  the outset (hey helped me." As 1  continued (he use of the pills, the  severe headaches left mo;* my appetite  returned and J gained in weight. In  fact, J wns soon enjoying perfect health  and have since continued todo so'.  1 attribute this entirely to (lie use ,of  Dr. Williams' PinkPiKs, and will be  glad if' some oilier weak and ailing  girl will profit by my experience.  Pale and sallow cheeks, dizziness,  headaches, palpitation of the heart,  and (he' feeling of weariness (lint  adlicts so many.young girls will soon  disappear if Dr'. Williams'Pink 'Pills  aroused.

Judge   S'pi'oat   lias   addressed   the  ���������������������������j?    , following jiioinorandum  to   the   City  Fathers :  There are some things here, , in  Revelstoke, that require more attention than they receive.  First���������No ��������� useful    communication  exist, with the farming and other  industries on the   opposite  side   of the  "     Columbia River.  Second���������The qctual City is severed,  for a niile, by a railway embankment  without a legal crossing.  Third���������The   Big   Bend road has no  .   established base, but rambles into the  City through Dominion   and   private  lands.  Fourth���������The large park, given to  the City by the Dominion, is in a  state of nature without approaches.  Fifth���������The   eight-acre     cemetery,  donated by Mr.  Farwell, has ho   pas-  , sable road to it; except by committing  trespass, which must cease. ,  Sixth���������The City has built   a .large  , brick house J3lock on No 53,thc relation  of which to the  Farwell  estate, is not  yel determined. .  Seventh���������Streets and alleys have  been shut,'or proposed to be shut and  appropriated, as if .the area closed  were not part of said estate.     ��������� .    t  These surely, (not to mention" other  things), are singular facts in a centrally situated town, eighteen years  old, which has been incorporated since  181)9. They point to some'dcfimlt,. in  time past, chielly on the part of the  authorities concerned. *>  J shall not deal afc present with all  of the.above matters, but .only with  the imminent closing of the Big Bend  road and of the road thence to the  cemetery, in consequence f of the ap-  propriation, xo other uses, of Villa  Lots Nos. 1, 2.' and 30, which, in turn,  brings to the front the question of  ��������� -���������--;.-        "KAII-W.VY CROSSINGS."  '       A,'simpler , question     than   this  question of crossings could not besub-  n ittcd to'u'ny business mind, yet very  "few persons here seen to   understand  ���������     it.      .'  The lands nt Revelstoke arc part of  the hinds granted for C.P.K. purposes,  to the Dominion; in pursuance of" the"  . 13 tli section of the Terms of Union by  the li. C. Act of 1880, ,ns amended in  1883 and 1884, the Company being  authorized to receive grants of tlie  land'from the.Dominion in aid of construction. A , reserve was placed by  the Province, upon the'"Belt" in 1883  for the purpose of conveying the lands  to the Dominion.  '   The Railway, Company,   upon   the  location of   its   line,   proceeded  with  "   construction:      This   was   going   on  east and west of the  Columbia   River  in   1S85,   when- the   town of Farwell  was staricd, and the need of a crossing  was at that t'itiie the subject of correspondence   between    the    Provincial  Government and the.C.P.K. Company.  '   '  In the registered plan of the. .town,  such crossing was shown at 'the west  ���������-   end   of  Douglas   Street���������the    whole  width of the street.".  All   this,' however,   owing   to, the  course that events took, as the. result  of disputes   and'  litigation,   cuts   .no  particular liguic'now, and the fact'is  only mentioned   here  to explain, the  tradition, in tlie minds of_many,'as  to  4 a   Douglas   Street    crossing,   which  ^ really ' wns   never   n   suitable place,  ' >   ,      owing lo the lowness of the   embank  k * merit there.  It was ata later time, following the  surveys of the town by the.. Dominion,  ' that the crossings were dealt with and  the ��������� practical   question   of the hour,  with respect to them, is only   embarrassed by references*to earlier history.  On the 18th of February; 1890,  the  Dominion, under .its   above   powers,  patented   to 60-100   acres   known  as  'Tarccl No. 1" to the C.P.R. Company.1  J    Ibis is the right of way strip, YL00 feet  wide,   vunnhig  from   the   Columbia  River to the cast limit of the   Farwell  1   Estate, hot 6 group 1, according to the  B. C. Government   Survey; D (the Dominion local surveys, , I presume, not  i not"having been then   completed' and  approved). The usual power ns, to  crossings that might bv deemed expedient remained in'tlie Crown.  . This power wns exercised in the  Dominion ollicial plans of Revelstoke,  dated respectively, 31st Oct., 1890, and  22nd June, 1892; by the indication  thereon, of the places of two crossings,  to connect the town north of the track  with the town south .of the track.  One of these crossings (which may  be called "No. 1") is where the wide  ,*. street, t hut runs along the east limit of  Villa Lot No. 3 (Louis Benoit's) strikes  the C.P.R. track. Obviously this  ' crossing is in relation to the Big Bend  wagon road along said street.  The other crossing (which may be  called Xo. 2) is near the bridge where  lhe street that runs along the south  limits of Villa Lots Xo. lO.(Levcsque)  and No. 12 (Allen) strikes the said  truck. Thi- crossing No. 2, without  doubt, is in relation to the Villa Lot  settlement, which alr-ady is becoming  .important.  The embankment at bolh these  places permits of overhead crossings.  The abovc,is in short, how the crossing  qm stion stands, and consequently in  dealing' with it now tlie Dominion  Government need not be   approached,  * unless in t$e very improbable event of  recalcitrancy or of a   proposal to sub-  ��������� stituto other crossings. The latter is  hardly practicable as the oflicial plans  are of record, and have been referred  to in all transfers of property, the  indicated crossings being presumed to  exist.  So   much   as   to     the    Dominion  Government.  Now as to the  Villa Lots, and it has not been finished  to the railway crossings but has been  deviated easterly through a portion of  the Farwell Estate and through* a 15  acre C.P.R. Parcel, as explained in the  above letter, ii which deviation must  now be forthwith corrected. -  I may remark here that the description of the west limit of the City is not  clearly worded in the Incorporation  Act, and, whether the City or the  Province is entitled to collect taxes on  some of the lands in that quarter  may be a question, but, it is said that  the city line is 800 feet from the right  of way.  Be this'as it may, the obligation to  open these 800 feet cai: hardly be upon  the city, as the continuous' default  from 1892 and the particular deviation  from the official Dominion plan, on  the part of the Provincial Government,  took place before the corporation  existed. It is not expected that the  Provincial Government will raise any  question as to'this work.    .  Without its completion and a crossing the costly Big Bend road will be  useless.  .The above default of the Provincial-  Government many years ���������ago, which,  probably, arose, from inadvertence,  does not,absolve the corporation from  responsibility in the premises. There  has been no change in" the main facts  of the situation since the city was  incorporated in 1899, and the obligation of dealing with those facts as to  the crossings and of subserving .the  public interests generally, ns to all  matters I have,mentioned, has been  upon the successive councils. I cannot as.a.non-resident pretend to know  what, precisely, has been done or  attempted to be done, but the general  impression in the public mind is that  the action of the corporation has been  inadequate. / Its duty to act, now, is  imperative to avoid a deadlock, in the  circumstances above described.  IN CONCLUSION *  so far as appears, blame does not  attach to the C.P.R. Company in connection' with the present situation.  The company is not responsible to the  public in the sense in which the Provincial Government and the corporation arc responsible in'their respective  spheres. It is no part of the Company's duty to initiate action as to  crossings when the parties, responsibly  concerned, remain inert. ^  "The Company has' not.,yet closed,  as it might, have done, and must now  do,' the passage of the deviated road  through its valuable parcel No. 3, and  it stood the risk for .years of a  dangerous level crossing where, as  travel increases, serious accidents may  occur. .-  COI������Y OK LETTER.  .

P. YR. "parcel 3". and  they would,have to get a dangerous  open crossing, near a curve, established upon the terminal section of  their trunk waggon road. It may be  safely assumed that,,neither the Dominion Government, nor the Railway  Company, would agree to any such  proposals  Nine���������A regrettable result of the  deviation is, that it exposes tbe Provincial Government inequitably[though  of course without real ground] to the  charge of taking sides in the peculiar  rivalries which exist naturally among  the residents in different parts of all  long narrow towns.       ������.  Ten���������The obvious remedial course  ���������if 1 may venture to suggest one���������  now is to continue.the road (it should  have been done at first) as per the  Dominion surveys^ for 15 or 20 chains  to its end at the railway track, and  for the Provincial Government to ne-  gociatc with the Railway Company  for an under-crossing ut such road  end. There must be a crossing, and  that is the place for it according to  the YDominiorf survey plan. The embankment is high enough, there for  an under-crossing. I should think  that from -the point of view of the  Company, a safe under-crossing at the  end of the said road, would be a good  substitute for the present open 'crossing at Wales Street, with its ' ever  present danger, both to road and railway traffic.  Eleven���������The bank descending to  the lower ground, which,exists about  ten chains from the track, is, in tbe  opinion of road makers, no impediment  to tbe aforesaid extension, being composed of gravel without'rock's in place.  You could "negotiate" it With" any  grade desired, ��������� nnd at a reasonable  cost greatly . less than the probable  amount of compensation for severance  of lands on all deviated route [supposing the latter could be maintained at  all, which is doubtful].

PROVINCIAL OOVI'llN.MI'.VT  J have to say that its position in relation to crossing Xo. J, is stated at  length, in the appended copy of my  letter of the 27th August, J00J, for the  information of tho Hon. Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works.  The wide street a hove referred to  which rims from .!. Ma ley's to the  town, on tin* Dominion ollicial map,  has heen roughly opened but the road,  us made, severs at least  two four-nerc  as ,long as 1890, surveyed and. made  a 'plan of the town, and in 1892, the  same Government surveyed into villa  lots, and made a plan of the lands  lying to the northward of the town  through which the said road .passes.  These two.plans are of record in ' the  Department of the Interior _ at  Ottawa, and all transfers of lands  here have been made in'reference to  them.  Third���������Tlie plans show tho streets  both inside and outside of the city;  and the 1892 plan show's, markedly, a  fine straight highway 50.33 chains in  length and 66 feet wide,running north  from the Railway track, and designed  evidently, ��������� in relation to the said Big  Bend road, (which road has been made  under'my direction, at nn earlier time  through* the then iinsurveycd. land.)  The official survey by the Dominion  Government, in 1892, preserved ��������� the  location generally, but- of course  strnightenet the.line of the road or  street. ���������     "- .  Fourth���������The Crown, thus having  made", ample and suitable, provisions  for streets and roads in the said plans,  was debarred by good practices estnb  lished'in such matters, from making  changes under any powers as to highways, reserved in its land grants and  patents, except for very pressing public reasons.  Fifth���������Nevertheless, the Provincial  Government, in 1897 (which.was before the incorporation of the city) as  the road approached Kevelstoke, set  aside the oflicial survey of the Dominion Government, nnd entered the city  by a remarkable deviation.  Six���������Having mnde the road generally  along the line , Dominion highway  shown upon the said plan of 1892,  they suddenly, when within 15 or ' 20  chains from the railway track, swerved  the road in nn easterly direction, ran  across and severed Farwell land, and  land held by the Dominion, and by  the C. P. JR. Co., and entered the town  at the north end of Wales Street, by a  dangerous open crossing near a curve  of the track.  Seven���������I cannot fi-nd any evidence  that the Dominion Government or  the Canadian Pacific Hail way Co. or  private land owners along the route,  have recognized this deviation. The  Dominion survey plan of 1892 remains  unchanged, and lands are sold and  bought every week, with recited reference to it. Hence my above opening  remark, that the way in which the  -13ig liend waggon road enters Kevelstoke is not satisfactory. The terminus or terminal section, is, so to speak,  "in the air." The rule has been disregarded that the provision of a suitable secure "Base", is the first need, in  making any lino of communication.  Eight���������What may have influenced  the Provincial Government in making  this singular deviation, and afterwards  in .leaving the deviated route in ������,��������� position, of insecurity, can only be conjectured. I myself on the spot after  examination nnd enquiry, cannot  make head or tail of it. The deviation affect the rights and interests of  more than a hundred properly owners.  The Provincial Government, n order  to maintain it, would have to got the  Dominion Official map changed; they  would have to compensate the owners  of severed lands, including the   loi'gi-  When your child���������whether a big  child or a little' baby���������suffers * from  stomach or bowel troubles of any kind',  is nervous; fidgety or cross and doesn't  sleep well, give Baby's Own Tablets.
