 VOL. 1.    NO. 17.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY,  OCTOBER 2, 1897.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  B... Ill DEPOSITS.  _>  v.'' ���������  Dr. Dawson   Cannot  Imagine  How  Anyone Can Consider Them  Hot Permanent.  Dr. Dawson, head of the Dominion  Geological Survey and nn authority  upon all matters connected with the  geological formation and mineral deposits of the province, was.inferviewed  in Victoria.  "I have never heard, nor can I imagine," said he, "any reasons for (he  idea which appears to be entertained in  some quarters that tho mineral deposits of British Columbia are not of a  permanent nature. There has not, it.  is true, been sufficient work done upon  oven the most promising properties,  to prove their extent, and it is of course  to be expectf d that amongst the total  number of claims recorded there will be  the usual percentage of worthless anrl  valueless ones. That is the enso in nil  mining districts, and does not apply  more particularly to British Columbia  than it does to other places. As is  mentioned in my report of 1885, thc  mineral deposits are most likely to  occur at thc point'of contact with the  granite formation, and prospectors on  thc islands of thc Gulf would do well  to pay particular attention to that important fact."  Turning to thc region which is just  now attracting so much attention���������the  ' Klond j kc���������and the different routes suggested ns being most feasible, the navigability of thc I-Iootalonqua river was  brought.up. And upon this subject  Dr. Dawson lins information gathered  from various sources which would scorn  to answer in the affirmative the quos-  , tions which have been propounded ns  to the feasibility of the proposed Stic-  kecn route.  From measurements taken by him  at thc mouth of the river, which would  indicate that, the Iloo.alonqua is of  great volume, and from thc reports fur  nished by Indians, it seems to Dr.  Dawson more than probable that, beyond the danger of low water being encountered at certain seasons of the  year, there would not be any serious  hindrance to navigation, and this  opinion is borne out by the published  report of Mr. Hays, of tlie U. S. Geological Survey, The latter gentleman  who went up the Teslinlnke from Tnku  . inlet, has fumi-hed some valuable and  reliable data upon this point, and from  his Statements Dr. Dawson is apparently very strongly of the opinion that  the all-Canadian route via Telegraph  creek, then to Lake Teslin and the  iHoo'alonquan river, may be looked  ���������upon as being not only feasible, but  actually preferable to any of the many  ���������which have been suggested.  Asked i.s to what he thought; would  he the effect upon the silver properties  of the Slocan of the recent fall of silver, the Doctor confirmed the statements of other gentlemen who have  devoted some considerable attention to  - ������he question. "Properties such as  some of those in theSlocan, when the  lead values are high','can be-worked at  _v profit even with silver at' a- much  lower price than it is quoted at to:day,  and the enhanced value of lead, caused  hy the shutting down of some mines,  such as those in the Cceur d:Alenes,  has added considerably to the advantages possessed by the Slocan people."  In regard to the report that the inevitable result of the closing ��������� down of  .the mines in the states of Washington  and Nevada, consequent upon, the fall  in the price,of silver, would be-, a reaction, which would bring up the  value of the white metal,; Dr. Dawson  said that he looked more to the cheapness of the production, the high percentage of lead and the increased price  of the latter metal' to warrant the belief in the continued increase of value  , of the Slocan Properties. "Of course,"  Tsaid he, "it cannot be denied that ih  view of the present very unsatisfactory  position silver occupies in the 7market  of the world, investors^'look with an  eye of suspicion upon investments, in  such properties, but, taking into consideration   the   large   bodies   ������f    ore  con-  geographically, and although with  those districts which by name are  familiar to most, I have in my special  branch of work become more familiar  than many, I must confess that the  task of visitinsr. much more that of  even hurriedly scientifically exploring,  it is all moro than one man cm hope  to do."  HUDSON BAY IS NO GOOD.  fl ul If If MIL  The Treacherous Lake Claims Three  Pleasure Seekers.  Johnson,   Strohm   and   Snellman   Were  the   Fated,  Ones.  It is of no Value   From   a   Commercial  Standpoint.  St. Johns, Nfld., Sept. 27.���������The steamer Diana, with  tho  Canadian   government exploring expedition   on   board,  arrived here to-day from Hudson   bay,  where it has boen making  an   investigation as to thc navigability  of   those  waters for (.'rain laden ships.     The expedition mndo six t,ripn through   Hudson strait, visited   Cumberland  sound,  explored the const of Baffin  land,   discovered a large  lake in   tho   interior,  trawled for   codfish   without   success,  surveyed both shores of Hudson strait,  visited Fort.Churchill, obtained   a   lot  of information from the factors   there,  steamed 30 miles up Ungava river nnd  reached Fort Chimo.   The.   expedition  reports unfavorably upon th'e commercial value of  the   Hudson   Bay   as   a  steamship route, owing to fogs, shoals,  icebergs, want of lighthouses   and  the  country b< ing bleak and   barren   with  no communication to ci\'ili_?.d regions.  The expedition will return in   w   week  to make a final run through thc   strait  to determine exactly when navigation  closes.   All explorers are well.  The Trail-Robson Road  Completed.  The last spike in thc Trail-RobBon  road was driven on the morning of  September 20th, and the construction  train was the first to pass over the rails.  The following day a train load of cykc.  war. brought down from Robson to  Trail, and a regular passenges service  will bu inaugurated as soon as tho C.  P. It. affords the proper'connections for  Nelson.  A Find of Free Gold.  The Royal Gold company, which  owns 11 group of claims on Grouse  mountain, has recently rnrde a find of  free gold on its properties. Recently  a wide ledge of promising quartz wns  encountered and less thrnn two feet  from tlio surface a seam was uncovered that.glistened with free gold visible  to the naked eye. D. D. Birks of ��������� the  Royal Gold . company yesterday said  that the company intended to spend  about $600 immediately in development work, as the find of free gold has  greatly encouraged therm  A LINE YIA  CHILCOOT PASS.  It Will  be Built   via   Dalton's Trail  Fort' Selkirk.   . 7  A company is formed and seeks incorporation for the purpose of building  a railway line through Chilcoot pass  and by Dalton's trail to Fort Selkirk  and the Yukon. While the route is  longer than via White pass it will be  comparatively little longer than the  Stickeen or Taku route with tli3 great  advantage of having one terminal on  deep water and the other terminal in  the center of the gold mining district,  be absolutely clear of river obstructions on the Yukon, and in a country  that is rolling with good indications of  mineral, arid, which has plenty of  wood. The company that gets this  franchise willhave a good thing."  A deplorable drowning accident occurred last Sunday afternoon, by which  three unfortunate men mot death  quickly and suddenly. Thc particulars are as follows :  On   Sunday    morning   thc   men   in  question, who had all been working  at  the Noble Five mine,  came  to   Bennett's boat house  and asked for a sailboat,  not getting it  they went  aw������v,  but returned after dinner, about  half  past one, when they rented.,a row-bout,  from  Bennet nnd  started  out on  the  lake,   going   as   far   as   tho   mineral  springs.     Some  time  afterwards they  again put out 011 tlio water  and   when  about opposite tho long sand point, in  some way  their boat capsized, throwing  thorn all  i'lto tho water.    Two of  the men,  John Snellman and   Charles  Strohm   sank   from   sight  almost instantly, thc other,   William Johnson,  lv Id on to the boat for some time, but  finally slipped off and went, down  like  his companions.     Several  parties   on  shore who witnessed lh������ brief struggle  of the men put out nt once and picked  up   thc   boat,    but no  traces   of the  bodies  could bn seen.    Dragging  for  the men was  at once, commenced  nnd  kept up until  Tuesday morning, when  Johnson was found by thc searcher in  waler about 150 feet deep  Thc remains wore removed to the  fire hall. A gold watch, nr. empty  leather wallet, S13.50 and a few minor  articles wore frund in tlie clothes of  Johnson. Dragging was continued for  Snellman and Slroi m, and the body "of  Snellman was recovered about throe  o'clock yesterday afternoon in about  thc same place. Mc had ?125.G5 in his  pockets and a silver watch which hail  stopped at ten minutes to three, thc  time they down. Search is still kept  up for thc body of Strohm, but to this  hour 1 p.m. wi_h.on_.si_ ������������������'?.������������_���������-.,  Tho three men were supposed to  have been on their way to thc fair at  Spokane, and report says thoy carriu i  considerable money. Johnson was a  carpenter by trade and had been working of late at various mines in the  vicinity. He came originally from  Telluride, Col. "  Tno spot where the first body was recovered is about 200 yards distant from  shore, and fisherman Lindsay, Alex.  Lindroot and Ole Lnwson were the successful searchers. The water was not  particularly.rough at the time, of the  accident and how the men upset is unknown, unless the common report that  they had been drinking is .true.  William Johnson has a sister living  in Spokane. She was notified by Chief.  Adams of her brother's death and telegraphed them not to bury her brother  till she was heard from again. Later  she ordered the body shipped to Spokane.  This will.be doi e- to-morrow moaning, no inquest being deemed necessary by. Mayor Green, who received  instructions from the coro'iipr to use  his own judgment' and proceed accordingly-     ''.  . ���������   '���������. : '; .,;���������  Snellman will be buried this afternoon by the city, as no one seems to  know where his friends arc.���������Kootenaian.  able to the white miners, wiio can Always find shelter or provision, with  them.  Prof. Carr-Harris, who spent three or  four weeks examining thc, washing  operations at thc Granite Creek mining  property which is managed by Mr.  Robert Stevenson, says that the prospects there are excellent.  Thc Klondyke excitement, he continued is aa strong among the miners  there as it i* in thc east, and probably  three out of every four will leave for  that country next spring. That country will prove a very important market  ior many years for tlie beef, cattle and  flour of Ontario, Manitoba and the  .Northwest. In this onmiection he remarked that in his opinion the great  route into the Klondyke country will  be h_" way of Edmonton, and he pro-  prsesto draw the attention of thc  government to that fact.���������Montreal  ���������Star.

Of course in a ceu.ii.ry- so extensive as this it is almost impossible  to say how much is yet to be seen; and  of course there is a vast streteh of land  in the northern portion which is yet  ^absolutely unknown country. Between  the Omineca arid the Stickeen river  there is for instance a stretch of land  _vhich is very imperfectly known even  The Jennie, Ainsworth, the No.' 5,  and another claim, nil ' adjoining tho;  noted Highland mine''at Ainswortr.';  have been sold. The sellers are Henry  Croft aiid' S. Thornton Langley, of.  Rossland, and the purchasers are Wilr  kinsou. Brown and Tomlinsori,; Eng-  ligb,capitalists. The sum paid.for thc  group was $15,000.    ..  Prof.  Carr-Harris    and   His   Western  - Prospectors.  The Payne Tramway.  '���������'' James Sheeran and his partner, Dan  O'Ray, have a contract of hauling the  material for the new tramway for the  Payne mine. The., tramway will be  nearly a mile and a half in length and  have three tratjks. Two six mule  team., driven with a jerk line, are doing the work.  Mr. Sheeran says that lour teams  are now engaged in hauling ore from  the mine down to the railway, and  that the output of the mine at present  is 76 tons per day.  . Prof. Carr-Harris, of the School of  Engineering" in connection with  Queen's University, Kingston, who has  just returned from a. two months examination ot the gold and silver hearing deposits of., tlio Similkamcen dis-:  trict, B.C., reports that these, metals  have been found there . in very large'  quantities, and that while the fall in  the price of silver is somewhat of a  drawback, still thero are great prospects  ahead. At Summit City silver leads  belonging to Messrs. Robert Stevenson  and Peter Lundcrsen have assayed $120  to thc,ton. v Another drawback is .the  'heavy expenditure for transportation.  It cost $20 to $50 a ton to bring the ore  to the line of th_ C. P. R. Travelling  through the mountains is principally  done on horseback along one horse  trails a couple of feet wide. The Indian  horses, however, nre cheap, running  from five to fifteen dollars each. Prof.  Oarr-Harn's speaks very highly of the  willingness of the Indians to carry  freight. There arc many Chinefie. there  who engage in alluvial gold washings,  and they arc noted for groat economy  in their working operations. . Both the  Chinese and Indians are most   hospit-  Tho Silvertonian of Silv.rton' has  this to say of ex-Chief Hamilton which  many here and 'elsewhere would rrgref  to learn wns the truth. . However our  motto is 'Lot Justice be done though  thc heavens fa1!'":  On his coming to this place, ho stirt-  ed out. ns ho said, to put down gambling ; but two of our most prominent  hotel proprietors-wore, reacntly waited  upon by two well-known "tin-horn"  gamblers, who assured those hotel men  that if this matter, that of gambling,  were placed by them in their hands,  under their care, gambling would not  be disturbed at their hotels. They assured those proprietors that they were  authorized b}r Mr. Hamillo.i to say  this There would doubtless be a "rake  off" lor Mr. Hamilton.  The course, pursued by Mr. Hamilton  since bis coming to this ; lace has been  too flagrantly bad, to permit us any  longer to keep silent regarding it. We  take it up only because wc, in ���������common  with all with whom wc have spoken to  about it, arc strongly of ihe belief that  thi��������� state of things should bo shown  up. Wc would bo better without any  constable than to havo him inflicted  upon us any longer. -:wd wc _ask the  government for his immediate removal  from this place. Jn this, we. voice tho  sentiments of thc better class of the  community. Thc best way to keep  down crime ind to havo the mining  camps retain their old reputation of  law-abidingncss would seem to ho what  wr/riavc heard one of our townsmen  advocate, to extend the jurisdiction of  the Northwest Mounted Police so ns lo  include these mining camps, and to  place therein.ai.sufficient number of  them to properly maintain law and  and order.... Men of the stamp ;of Mr.  Hamilton, at leastwill not do so. His  ifluence is apparently too markedly,, in  the opposite direction.  Following the publication;.-of .'-.the  foregoing Mr. Hamilton had Mr. Cameron, editor of tlie Silvertonian, arrested for criminal libel, and the charges  arid action of defence have thrown the  town into great excitement. Two,  ���������petitions are now in circulation, one  for the dismisal of Hamilton,- and the  other to raise means.to defend Cameron; If thc accusation is true, Hamilton should,'of course go. If it 'is untrue, Canaeron should receive the proper consequences. "We should thinkf  however, Hamilton was too old a maii  to allow himself' to fall into such a  net. The case before the court will  explain all. .-'���������.'���������'      ' ^  The latest r.port is that Hamilton  has left the force. He had his option  of being suspended.or resigning,and he  took the latter. Erom what can be  gathered, this has arisen out of some  irregularity in arresting. Cameron, of  the Silvertonian, for libel and some  others for selling liquor without a  license. The allegation is he was partial in thc discharge of his duties; but  nothing more.serious, has as yet' come  U> light.  A meeting was held in the Virginia  Block Thursday evening for the purpose of devising some means by which  a more commodious fire hall could be  built and the adding of more necessary  hose and apparatus. Mr. Grimmett  occupied thechair.The meeting waswell  attended. A although several theories  were advanced, nevertheless the ultimate, end was that .nil present were  unnniniouMy in favor of meeting the  neces.arj demands.  The building required is 16x20 in  dimensions, two stories high with a  00 loot tower for the purpose of storing  and drying hose after being used. It  could replace the present structure op-  Jn passing upon the matter Mr. Justice Drake came to the. conclusion that  tlie price paid was inadequate, so much  so, as to show a conclusive arrangement between the directors and Doneen  to benefit the latter at thc expense of  Ihe shareholders. In view of the fact  that the British Columbia statutes had  not been followed he set aside the conveyance, giving the plaintiff judgement  for costs and ordering thc conveyance  to be delivered for cancellation.  Notice of appeal was given.���������Nelson  Miner.        '    .  Ul Bill  positi* the Goodenough. Mr. Harris as-  Miring them tlie town ould have free  use of the lot. Thc equipment lor the  new hall that is rcvuircd is nn extra  quality of hose to replace the prc-ient  hose as they are somewhat the worse  of wear. The sum required for this  purpose roughly estimated will amount  to about, ������1,000, thc hall itself costing  in tho neighborhood of $000.  Mr. Harris willhave underway shortly a 515.000 Ore protection system and  with the. present operating sys'em will  eclipse anything in Ko'tenay thus  placing Sandon foremost us having the  most complete system in the country  and will be able to cope with any emergency that mav arise. Thc source from  which thc pressure is to be secured is  the creek and is to be worked on the  hydraulic system. An addition of  seven hydrants are. to be put in, equally distributed through the town.  A committee was formed of the following citizens: Messrs. Grimmett.  Sandihmds, Switzcr, Thos. Brown, Crawford ami Buckley to canvass thc town  for subscriptions for this purposo.They  also intend holding a fireman's ball to  raise sufficient money to buy the hose.  There is no doubt but that these  tjcntlemcn will secure the necessary  funds, and every citizen will generously  l-copon-d  .vhen oniiod upon.     It w_E l-lsO  stated by thc chairman the local government pro.miscd thc sum of $150 to  the town of Sandon towards fire protection at the last meeting of thc legislature, but as yet have not carried out  that pledge, but there is no question  but they will fulfil it at the next sitting of thc House.  After thc cl.se of the. meeting a large  number of those present nut their signatures to a petition drawn up subscribing sums ranging from $25 toUlOO,  which shows to what extent those  present realize the necessity of  a new hall and increased apparatus. .  B. C. ill II EUROPE.  Mining  Stocks  Being   Briskly  i    Europe.  Boomed  I  Toronto, September 21.���������Mr. De Put-  ton Gliddcn, one of the members of thc  Approved Investment Co., of  London,  Eng., is in the city.    He  has   just   returned from London, and is on his way  to Colorado and Montana,where he has  considerable business interests.     Min"  ing business  in  London   and   Europe  generally, at present, Bays Mr. Gliddon,  is only fair, the folks'over there having  not yet recovered from   the   smash-up  of the Kaffir circus and the collapse in  West Australia.     An   effort   is   being  made, however, to boom British Columbians, and some of the stocks arc  now-  quoted  but progress is   very   slow   as  yet.   Excellent  work   is   being  done,  along   the   lines   of   Making   British  Columbia be'ter known, by thc British  Coin    bia Review,  which can   hardly  fail to stir   up   interest   before   Jong.  British Columbia is being talked of in  Paris also.    La mine, of that city,   the  foremost mining paper in   France,   i_  taking nn interest in Canadian mining,  and the   management   recently   asked  Mr. Gliddon to contribute   articles   on  gold   mining   in   this   country.     Mr.  Gliddon believes that if it   were  gone  about   properly, a   large   amount    of  capital could b_   obtained   in   France  and Belgium  for   thc development   of  the mineral wealth of the Dominion.  Asked whether the Klondyke excitement would help other Canadian, mining in the cities of the foreigner, Mr.  Gliddon replied : 0 "On the whole I  rather think not, fur the Klondyke has  been wrongly talked of .as part of  British Columbia, and the British Columbia men have encouraged that talk,  with tho result that the idea is abroad  that the provincehasan Arctic climate,  and that, work can be carried on only  for a couple or three months each year.  The excitement is certainly less than  it was, and the new Klondyke syndicates and companies are finding it  hard to raise tho capital .they desire.

The Justice mill Was ground nothing  but shorts the past week, that is the  docket is short itself. One of the demimonde tried an action for assault against an inmate but tailed.  G. Dumsall had A. McLcod find $1.00  for a brusing. The parties live at thc  Sopher mine.  A case of contravention of thc  vincinl Fire Act is coming up   in  police court to-day.     ,  Pro-  ' thc  THE CAMERONIAN.  Work on the trail to the Cameronian  mine on Lemon creek, has commenced,  and a force of men have been put on  the property, when on. for shipment  will be taken out. The property is  owned by a Sandon company.  , Last Saturday afternoon; Mr. Justice  Drake handed down a decision in the  case of R. T. Daniels vs. the Gold Hill  Mining company that is of great interest to every foreign corporation doing  business in British Columbia, ���������. It  'covers'11'legal point-''that may effect  many companies and to an extent protects stockholders in foreign compan-  whose properties arc under the jurisdiction of British Columbia courts. .  The action was brought to set aside  a conveyenee by the directors to E. J.  Doneen, a brother of one of the. directors, on the ground that it   was ' made  fraudulently, without lawful authority,  without- adequate   consideration   and  with intent to. ..defraud   the   creditors  and shareholders of the company. The  transfer involved the Gold Hill  mineral claim at Rossland and was  made in  Washington in   pursuance   of   powers  given   to   the   directors     under    thc  statutes.of the   state   of .Washington  which gives to directors of a company  all the power of a corporation.   It was  registered here as a   foreign "company  .but   the   British   Columbia,    statutes  direct that property'of   a   corporation  can only be sold by resolution   passed  nt a general   special   meeting   of   the  stockholders'representing at least two-  thirds in value of the paid up   capital  stock of the corporation,  which  meeting shall be held in the province.   Thc  property in 'question sold for $1,200   at  a meeting of the directors held in  the  state of Washington and testimony introduced went to show that the actual  market   value   of   the   property   was  about $5,000. :  Eugene Eyl,     K. & S.   lineman,  building a house on C avenue.    ���������':  George Irish is building a barber,  shop next to Niven & Bell's store.

Air. and Mrs. McCready are the reciepients of many  congratulations.  The Whitewater mine will double  its output this month, shipping 33 cars  for the 30 days of September. There  arc now 65 men on the payroll and  this number will be considerably increased. It is a fact patent to all acquainted with this property that it is  in a position to become one of the  heaviest shippers in the country.  Since work was commenced on the  mine no ore other than that removed  in actual development work has been  shipped. ��������� ��������� ���������   ���������  Isaac Waldron has taken a contract  for another 400 feet on thc long crosscut on the Whitewater Deep mine.  The calculation is to tap the Whitewater vein 400 below' any present  workings on the ledge. With the'completion of this tunnel another will be  commenced on the flat, close to Bell  Bros', sawmill, within a few yards of  the K..&S. tra.k, and run probably  1,200 feet to tap the ledge still lower.  The Whitewater Deep consists of five  claims, the property of . Barbarian  Brown and others, under the management of W. A. Boss. The wort is  being done on the Fresno Fraction.���������  Ledge.  It is reported that gold is found on  Kaslo mountain that assays $96 per  ton.   Robert Kane is the discoverer.  A half interest in the Poor Man  mine has been sold to English capitalists for ������100,000. It is not a poor  man's payment, however.  The following were the shipments  from the smelters last week: Matte,  Trail smelter, 60 tons; Hall Mines, 200,  tons.   Total value, 5112,453.82.  The Star mine has now its break  fully repaired, though it never was as  as oad reported in some of tho papers.  It was a rush of water that loosened a  part of a hanging wall in No. 4 tunnel,  lhe full force of miners is now on  again, and everything is going on as  before.  The Arlington, the biggest mine at  Slocan City, has shut down because of  inability to pay the hands. This is  not the fault of the mine, however, as  there is plenty of good ore on the  dump to meet ail demands.  W. H. Brandon is pushing operations hard on his mine, the Canadian  group, between Silverton and Sandon.  This it what he has to say of Sandon  mining;__There is unusual activity  among mining men at Sandan, and the  output of the camp will, no doubt, be  largely increased, as at present all are  preparing to take advantage of raw-  hiding and additional miners will be  put to work in thc near future on the  larger properties, while many new  claims have been developed during the  past summer to such an extent that  they are now in shape to swell the out- ���������  put, so that the future for the winter  is exceedingly good and the transportation companies will be taxed to their  utmost in handling the output of San-  don's mines.  An old prospector who has recently  been working on Harrison lake was in  Seattle on Wednesday and exhibited a  specimen 01" rock, which, he claimed,  was taken from .. considerable body of  ore, and which assayed Sl,590. He  had another, a picked specimen, which  he "claimed assayed $27,000. The "  miner said that these were on the  same lead as the recent finds made on  Mount Baker.  On  the   Golden Star mine   in   the  Kamloops district a tunnel run in to  strike the foot wall shows the ledge to  be 40 feet wide,   with a pay streak a  foot and >i half wide.   A shaft sunk 15  feet on the foot wall  about   100 yards  from  the tunnel shows ore   which assays $53.15 in gold and copper.   One of  the great advantages of the Kamloops  district is that there is no difficulty in  shipping,  it being possible to drive a  wagon to any of the mines.  i ,'f. 11  In Rossland and the Sloean.  The Miner has received a lengthy  telegram from Montreal, signed by J.  B. McArthur, president cf the Rossland  board of trade, to the effect that yesterday he had an interview with Vice-  President Shaughnessy, of the C. P. R.,  and learned all particulars concerning  that corporation's policy in regard to  the Kootenays. Mr. McArthur declares that. Mr. Shaughnessy is the  authority for the statement that the  "C. P. R. interests in Kootenay are  infinitely greater than those, of anyone  else, and we must deal with them in a  ig way." . ��������� '  The dispatch also states authorative-  ly that the C. P. R. intends to invade  the Kaslo ������ Slocan territory and by a  system of tramways to the twines take  the cream of the trade enjoyed by the  little Kaslo and Slocan between Sandon and Whitewater stations.  Mr. McArthur says further that the  C. P. R. is planning to control the  transportation to and from Rossland.  The big road will build into Rossland  via China creek fiat..  While the G. P. RJ is not going into  the smelting business, thwse who are  closely identified with it will do so,  and arrangements arc practically completed for the erection of large reduction works at some advantageous point  on the Columbia river, which will treat  Rossland ores. This plan includes a  scheme for gathering together ores of  the different mines situated on the  different mountains around Rossland  at one general depot. Every .hipping  mine will be made tributary to the  C. P. R. by lin������:s of aerial tramway.  from the mines to the railway track, to  the total exclusion of other roads.  Mr. McArthur concluded his telegram with an expressiou of hope that  mine and mineral claim owners will  "get in and drill."  i'N I  M  I  i t-11  if.

THE IRISH FAMINE.  ��������� ��������� It /must, be  evident to   those   who  ��������� give the matter attention that  there is  "������������������     yet much   to -.correct. in   the  governmental' manag.merit even of advanced  ;'   England.     Periodically famines,'that  call for the sympathy .of the world, occur in several of her colonies, '��������� and the  question of averting- their   recurrence  never receives, proper attention.-at'the.  ,.'���������"'  hands of her parliaments.    It is   true-  ���������'     that  often,  visitations occur  that are.  7 beyond the mind of man to foresee or  "the   power of his  hand to avert;" but  there are certain consequences to foi-  '   low   certain causes, that any body  of  men, like .the parliament of England,  ought always to have a, knowledge of  :���������'.,.    trom   the   written"1 pages:   of   history.  Early" in  the  seventies   there was a  . famine in Ireland that, after exhausting  the sympathies,of all of .Britain's colonies, recorded   its victims  by hundreds  of   thousands,   and'  from   newspaper  ��������� reports there is   likely to be, a   recurrence of it again through the failure of  ,   the potato crop, which is ..the mainstay'  of.   the population.      Of .course   the  English . parliament ' and -government  " ' . could not foresee1'this, approaching failure of crop, but they-should see.   tak-  ;,-   ing into account the   business pursuits  of the people, that the country is oyer  ,    populated,   and that with any partial  failure of crops, famine and starvation  are the   inevitable  result.    Years ago  ������������������-.'.  there was a large.employment of labor  on the island   in. the   production,  and  Vnamitacture   of linen,   but   by   England's policy  of Free Trade, this has.  ���������������������������' all been mined, and now the people���������  the country   being  without timber ".or  minerals���������have to fall back almost exclusively on agriculture, and whenever  .his   becomes   subject to   any   partial  ,  failure, as it,does in even the most' fav.'  '���������'   .������red times,,: famine,-is the   certain   re-  '  -suit.    Let us now look at a  few statistics   to' show that   the English   parliament, are guilty of criminal -..gleet   in  mot   making   a   reasonable   provision'  ...against-   the 7 suflerings     of    Ireland  Tthrough ihis occasional cause.  All things considered   there are but  32,500  square   miles of land in  Ireland, and deducting "gentlemen's" estates reserved as sacred wholly for the  chase,   roads,   townsites,   bad. lands,  ���������etc.   16,000 square miles is a reasonable estimate for tillage,   and the pop-,  ulation of the country, is about five and  .���������a quarter   millions,   that is there   are  ���������.about 3 28 people to be maintained on  every acre   of available land.    Even  with good crops   any reasonable man  must know that living that way is next  (to starvation, and   there is   always   a  ���������chance of less than good crops.     The  surprise is that   630 Commoners with  [Lords proportionate will sit in parliament and vote away millions, on   this  tthatand' tlfe other, of money   that is  not worth more than   tsyo or three per;  ' icent. .and   no thought of a scheme to  .avert .-.the probable, ��������� at any time, destruction of their people in Ireland.    A  .ew millions spent   in sending the one-  ithird of Ireland's   over-crowded   population  to   Manitoba,   the Territories  ���������or   British   Columbia,    would   avert  .these disastrous consequences,  and be  .3oing a serviceable act to our partially  settled   provinces besides.    We  say it  .'again, the surprise that common sense  with a. little regard-  for  their fellow  beings,  does not  urge the   legislators  and capitalists of England   to an   act  like this which   is .the only thing   that  can. permanently  relieve   over-popu-  ilated Ireland.  It is a matter for surprise that   after  the visits of the provincial ministers to  the Kootenay co.untry  during the past  summer and seeing what is being done  here, some vigorous step is not  made  towards   constructing:   wagon   roads,  building the   necessary  court  houses,  school houses and other much needed  public improvements,   so great- is... the  progress  of the   territory.     The first  house of any. permanent- character was  erected in Nelson some ten, years,ago,  which   may he regarded   as the   commencement of settlement, as Nelson is  the oldest town ih southern Kootenay,'  and now there is   a population of not  less than thirty or thirty-five thousand ;  and   .were;- there,     suitable      public  improvements to'meet the demand   it-  would eaisly be a third greater..   Surely this   condition , of things   ought' to  move the   government ,'to   something  like the necessary action  to meet   the'  necessities of tlie country.-  CANADIAN   TRADE.

Burn, 011 being asked as to the state of  business in tlie east," confirmed previous repor.s of other financial men  that busiheis has begun to improve,  and that there is an ercellent'outlook  for a further advance in that direction.  This improvement is due,, Mr. Burn  ���������says, in, oh. opinion of many, business  irieri, .partly 'to, the' revival of trade  which has undoubtedly set in in the  eastern states, and also to a, great extent to the fine crops'which had been  gathered in .most parts of''Canada, and.  the materiaPad vance in tlie, price of  most, if- not all, of them.      ,'"' ,r  With   reference to; business,matters  in Hnnitobn., Mr. Burn having just arrived,  was   unwilling  to  express  any  opinion.

He says, like Adam of  old, it was his wife who was  to blame  ,as far as there is. blame, in  the matter.  He told her it was in   Slocan City the  .disease was,and that it was only fever;  that the wife told   the reporter   it was  Slocan City, and the reporter confused  it with   Sandon,   but  this will not  go  down.    Th.va.rticle  so described San-  ���������don, in   its drift, that  no   other place  could have been  named.      If it   was  Slocan City that  was named, why was  it said the town was' built in   a gulch,  across  a stream, etc.?    The  reporter  knew none ol Sandon's natural peculiarities, and   would   not   have   given  ithem if not (old them, and they would  never have   been   brought   up   if the  place had not been named.    No ;  we  :fear Brechtnell  has not improved  his  ���������.case by his letter.  Mr. B. E. Walker, of Toronto, gen<?r-  a:l manager of the Canadian l.ank of  Oonmieive. who has.relurned e:ist..ifl<t  spending some ti-nie looking over the  '���������lining sections  of British   .Columbia  was'interviewed and lias lhe   folio.wii"  ... (       .... r-  to say   regarding   lhe   wealth    of this  Country :    "lam', very much impressed  with what the British   Columbia,  mining'districts-were going to do   for   the  Territories in consuming moat,   butter  and ,(lour; also for their own   province  in the consumption of fruit.   Business  was just beginning, and. was^capiible, of  tremendous development, as  the   area  is opening up.."   Mr. Walker   spent .,.-1  good .many  days'   in   Kootenay, -arid  went all through pretty,carefully. ��������� Silver mining and mining in   the  galena  ores were in a very lively state; twenty  or  twenty-live   mines   were   shipping  ores now.   At Rossland and at Nelson  there were enormous   amounts' of   refractory ores   that   were   waiting   for  better railway facilities   and   cheaper  smelting,    lower   miners', wages   and  cheaper food and coal.   Such a   reduction of charges will make tlio future, of  Nelson and Rossland entirely different  from the present.   There is very   littlo  shipment of ore going on now at either  Rossland or Nelson, there   being   only  one mine at each place.    Apart   from  these, they are largely, living on 'their  prospects.    Avery   different, state   of  things exists  in   the   Slocan   country,  which is receiving an income of SI 0,000  a day from ores shipped.   Mr.  Walker  regards the Slocan country as regularly  started in its mining career.   He dwelt;  upon the importance of cheaper   trans:  portation and the opening   up   of   the  Crow's Nest Pass ; this, he said,   would"  bring cheaper coke, that meant cheaper   smelting;   cheaper   transportation  would mean cheaper food,which would  mean smaller wages to  mines; and all  this would mean the   profitable   working of a Jarge territory that cannot now.  be developed.     No   doubt   there   was  any ariiouh _f gold "and silver in British  Columbia,    and   mining   would   yield  great   results ; .though , personally   he  did not believe tho average, results  per  man to those   engaged   in   the   work  would be as good as those attained   by  raising wheat and hogs, and   fattening  cattle.  In the miners' camps Mr. Walker  saw practical evidence of the vigorous  demand for agricultural products.  Everything that could tempt thc appetite was supplied ; the miner would  not work unless he is well fed. The  territory near thc Rooky Mountains  going to have thc Jirst chance of supplying the mining di.triot. He was  very much pleased to see that most of  the food seems to be Canadian ; he had  fancied the Americans were supplying  the greater portion. They were, however, supplying many other things that  should be sent in fr_i._ Canada..  British Columbia's Capacity to raise  fruits, said Mr. W.ilker is enormous,  and the fruit growers will have a market in their own country, as well as  in the prairie towns.  From the point of view of an outsider it appeared to Mr. Walker that  ono 1 hing needed more, thanv anything  else in British Columbia, is some  means of preventing thc enormous annual destruction of valuable timber  by fires started from sparks from railway trains, prospectors' camp fires,  etc. As.thc mines are great users of  timber, the preservation of the splendid forests is the more important.  i.

Lately Dorfkie met with   a riuinbt-r of  reverses which  crippled liim  financially.   : He had accumulated  enough  money since his residence, thereto pastor a 40-acre tract of farming land and  to equip  the farm' with stock  and the.  necessary  implements   for tilling  the  soil and harvesting the crops,  but this  year .his crops   were   poor, his  oxen  : died,   and   Iii- -poultry   were   carried  awav   by   hawks,   ho--'.'that.-'-while, his  neighbors saw plenty''on haild to carry,  them through the coming long winter,  the old  plan   saw starvation looking  ���������;'. into   'the. faces, of himself and  three  .daughters.   Something' must be done  Hnd   the .wary old   Fihlander   set to  ��������� ;'.'���������': thinking out a scheme for replenishing  ,; his .depleted  exchequer.   .At last an  jdea carne to him, and he lost no time  v jn shaping jt into a lucrative scheme.  ',':' He loved his three,daughters and they  Joyed liim dearly, but they had dozens  of young* men lovers, .and v.sooner ,or  ',later they would leave him  to live the  remainder of his days  iii poverty and  ' loneliness, i   Why  not   realize   some-  .'.. thing on his daughters?   It was agood  scheme  and "he  proceeded., at once  to  carry it out- 'The: old man,   Dorfkie,  Warning   to  held   a   conference .with-���������his "th.rre  daugters,   and . unfolded' to them;, his  plan for making '. dney.   Tie proposed:  \ at first to have  an, auction," and  to sell  ���������   tliem,   one!' by   one, / to   the   highest,  bidder,; but the  young women.shrank  from   such, a-   barbarous   suggestion,  ���������though they signified their willingness  to acquiesce in any legitimate scheme  of     money-making   that    the -father  -... might devise.   , At last tlie . old', gent,  :   thought it might be' a good scheme to  have a raffle; and so informed the'threc  dutiful young women.   They objected  at first, on tlie:ground that they might  : be obliged to aceopt men as theirhus-  bands,' who '.were "unsatisfactory-:-" to'  r, thein, but  when the  father promised  that the tickets should be sold  to per-  "p'onp only "who wepc acceptable in  all  respects, there, was nothing left for the  girls to do but to assent,; and this they  readily did.   So it was whispered about,  the  neighborhood ore  day last week  that Farmer Dorfkie had decided  of 22: summers.'   ' This  time, the winuing,.ticket   was held :by  one of the richest men in  the. town,  b.ut, unfortunately, he was  a  married  man witlra large family. 'This caused  a   long   delay,    in   the, proceedings,  during' wliich   the     entire'   audience  entered     into   a   heated - discussion  as    to, what    disposition   should- be  made   of-the ticket,.but it was "finally  agreed that the lucky  number should  be   sold at-auction   'then   and ..there.  This was'donp,  and. after considerable  spirited bidding, the 'second daughter  bec1 me,  the   prospective   bride   of ra  middle-aged widddwer,   who paid   ������50  for the prize.   Then came the,raffle for  the youngest, and t lings were progressing smoothly-enough   wlien  an error  was discovered  which, caused   a bitter  altercation between two ticket holders,  and  came- near precipitating   a free-  for-all   light .among r ..lie ' spectators;  Through-    carelessness    the   'winning  number had been duplicated, and .then,  were'  two claimants for ..the   hand  of  daughter No.:,8..   At length   ;i.   general  i"ow was averted, however,, by the adoption of a  happy suggestion.   The two  claimants resorted to a "freeze out" for  a'termination  of thc mattor',", and   for  two hours they set at a card table, surrounded by an excited crowd of friends,  manipulating  the   pasteboards   for   a  bride.   -Slowly thc stack  of-chips in  front of the unlucky player dwindled  to a paltry few, and.atlast ..bis, oppoiir  ent swept the board, and the game was  decided'- in   favor   of: ,a .young,man  named Gustav'Johnson,  who labors by"  the day   on  the farm  of his  father.  Truo'.to their promise the three daughters will allow themselves  to be led to  the altar -by ihe three, lucky -ivlm-ieTS,  and the three weddings will take place  within a month, upon   which occasion  a   great daiice   will  be given   in the  school-house;to all ,'thc people   of the  settlement-,..

The tickets  ypentlike hot cakes at SI apiece, and  within a few days the loving   father  ���������.' had exchanged his basketful of:paste,  boards for a, like measure of shining  .silver and gold. In his anxiety to  dispose of all- the tickets, Mr. Dorfkie  forgot his promise :to discriminate in  favor of the best looking and most  prosperous suitors in the settlement.  He took everybody's dollar in' ex-  pha,pg_. for.-a ticket, and the corise-  ouehee was that every man in the  village, married or single, rich or poor,  homely.or handsome,   had possessed  , bimse}f of one or more chances for the  hand of one of the fair daughters long  before the time se���������t for the raflle. . 'The  day came for the great event, and the  school house was packed to the outer  door with men, women and children.  People in the neighboring towns had  heard of the novel atlair, aiid came  j'rorrt all d.rections to witness this final  proceeding. Two hundred and fifty  tickets upon each girl had been sold,  and the arrangement was that each  prize should be disposed of separately  under the auspices of a committee  selected out of tlie audience. Tickets  numbered to correspond with those  sold were placed in one box, and another box contained 249 blanks and  one number marked "Prize." Two  young girls were then selected to preside over the boxes anil the- drawing;  commenced, thi>..tickets being removed  from both boxosl-ihiultaneously until  the lucky number drew the prize. For  half an hour the audience sat in suspense, wlnle the two girls slowly withdrew tne numbcs and compared them  Under the vigilant eyes of the committeemen, but at last thc number 115  was responded to by the exclamation  "Prize!" and the first raflle was.over.  Then followed ���������    ��������� ���������  .Seattle, Sept. 30.���������One of ,'��������� the most  distinguished passengers to arrive in  this city on the steamer Queen from  Alaska, was Burton-F.Bennet, who  was sent north by Grover Cleveland t������  fill, the office of .United States district  attorney for Alaska.' .���������';������������������  '     -.''  "The world at large may not realise  it," said Mr: Bennett, "but there' ,are  men.'- up north, walking 'right, into  death. Snow- is probably flying on  White Pass, aiid,if not, it soon-will.- be.  Many,propose to winter at Skagwa-y;  but from what I can learn, hundreds  do not propose to stop there, nor will  they return to civilization, .They, have  the gold fever, as no other body of men  have had it. ,;Every time, they hear of  a strike in the' Yukon country, they  get crazier than ever. They will pot  stop for snow ; they will not stop for  storms. They will keen pushing over  White Pass all -winter.. I am satisfied  that \yhile the snow is coming down in  all its fury on the pass"and'the wind is  blowing, iii awful gales this winter, you  will see men on the White Pass. It is  a frightful thing to think of, but it is  true. These men should be stopped.  I will not be surprised to learn of  manydeaths up there this winter. It  is the most damnable rush, ever heard,  or read of. These men do, not know  anything about the horrors Of White  Pass in -the,-Winter time, yet thev keei_  on. Just about thc time winter is;'at-  its worst, some of them wiil.be caught  on White Pass. They will, never  escape. '..,-'..  "I am satisfied those who remain : at  Skagway this winter will be all right.  Spring will soon be with them and  they can start for the, north. Once  there they will all come back rich if  they are willing to stay and to work  for a fewyears. There is gold in every  body of water, big or little, in Yukon  country. People, with all the newspaper talk, do' not know what the rush  will be in thc coming spring. , From  letters I have received from the States,  there will bo 10,000 people in Alaska  six weeks after the spring rush commences. I think that reports about so  much crime in the vicinity of Skagway have been exaggerated. We are  doing what we can to seothat order is  j������X~*-'  There* is  implanted   . i"  every,   man   'a  love   of   life  strong; enoujrh  to, make    liim'  tremble, and  kneel   before  dea'tli when lie  thoroiiK-ily recognizes its.- approach'.' .,/,   The  trouble with-  men  ,is   that  they do not recognize   death  unless it comes  in some violent  . ?^or rapid   form.  Ji' Consumption  " kills more men,,  ' than wars, fam-  , ines,   plag-ues  'and! accidents,  but its approach  -is-insidiousj and men do not, realize that  they are ih its clutch.    While consumption  is n perm disease, the bacilli will not in/  ���������'vacle:..oniid and healthy lungs;   The lungs  must first be in'a diseased.condition.        . ;  First a:'man  feels' a little out of sorts]  : Probably he ,is-overworked and has given  too little time, to' eating-, sleeping and restr  ing.    His appetite falls off.    His digestion  geis out of order and his.blood does.not  receive :the  proper amount of life-giving  nutriment.   The liver becomes torpid 'and  the blood is filled with impurities.    These  are'pumped into evety ���������or'ran of the body,  ..building up unhealthy, half-dead  tissues.  The most harm is done at the weakest-spot,  and' most .frequently that: spot is .in  the  lungs.     A slight  cold ,4eads  to inflammation,  the bacilli invade the lungs  and we  have a case, of consumption.  Ninety-eight per cent, of all cases: of-  consumption , are . cured by Dr.- Pierce's  Golden' Medical Discovery. It is the great  blood-maker and.flesh-builder. It restores  the lost appetite, makes the digestion perfect," invigorates the liver, purifies the  blood, builds new and healthy flesh and  drives out all impurities aiid disease germs.-  It cures weak lungs, spitting of blood, obsti- -  nate coughs and kindred ailments.
