Atrial trip was made a short distance  out from the shore, and then the_  noble little craft- was headdd down the'  lake towards this city. As she hove  in sight three shrill whistles were  given, which were answered by shouts  and the waving of hats and handkerchiefs by the largo crowd of people  who assembled at the wharf lo witness the event of tho arrival gf ,the  lirst steamboat, at Moyio Qity. The  boat nassed tlie wharf, went on,- down  the lake a short distance then returned  and landed, where sho was gazed upon,  'with admiration hy the'crowd which  had gathered around.' Capt: Edward  \Voods, one of iKb best known river  pilots in'Britisii Columbia "and one of  lhe men wh-3 had charge of the building of the boat, handled the wheel  .md was-ably a--si? ted'by L. E. -Saultcr,  while./, i'f Musg.-t.ve manipulated the  engme. and handled it well, too, for  tins' trip was,..run without a single  .-il'ip or break in his department,  ^imongthe prominent men on board  were Judge "\V. H.' Eraser, J. M. Lindsay, one ol the proprietors of the Lake  Shore hotel, TV. T. Jameson and llobt.  Ktii/Je.  After fhs-'ijfat luul reiiMained a short  lime at the--wharf, all who wished to  no aboard were given a 7ide 'to the  foot, of thc. lake a nd back," and in the  evening a trip was also made to Finch  Bro.'s sawmill, a distance of about  three miles"above Jtoyio City on the  upper lake. cMany'who did not have  an opportunity of Having a rule in the  afternoon took advantage of this trip,  and a delightful ono it was. The lake  was perfectly calm, and the only  sound to be heard was that of the  working of the' machinery. The tfip  through the narrows; which connects  tlie upper and lower Moyie lakes, was  quiet exciting, as it was the first attempt to run a boat of its size thrqugri  that narrow channel, but tho run was  made without the least difficulty.  At a point a short distance above the  narrows on the opposite " side  of the lake Finch Bro:'s sawmill is located, and here the boat tied up for a  ���time while some lumber was being  loaded, and then the run for home  was made, and all on board were loud  in their: praise  of  Moyie City's  first  steamboat.  The building of the Echo was begun last fall by Capt.' I. B. Sanburn,  but belordd'its completion was purchased by G*. .Campbell aud A. T.  Clark of this place and' Chas. Theis  of Fort Steele, who is also, interested  in the steamers .JNorth 'Star and J. D.  FaiTcll on the Kootenay river. It is  51 feet in length and has a carrying  capacity of 10 tons. It is equipped  with all' the requirement-) of a first  Ola's-*** boat, and the speed which she  makes is a guarantee of its exception--  ���,lly feood nii-dol. It will ply tne lake  between Moyie City and Swansea, at  ���tho head of the lake, for freight and  passenger truffle,, and will also-be  used for excursions etc, '. ,   '   .  When it. is taken:into consideration,  that U*ss than one year ago where  Movie Oinv now stands there were  but'a few log shacks and but, one or  ,��������� small boats on tin* .lake, and  nothing but a narrow trail leading  i:il��� tlio Place, one can readily see the  rapid brides which .ho has made, and  A-AH'srollbyitistobe hoped..that  .tlho whistle of the Echo will still echo  th-ou-'h the surrounding mountains  1 ii ium into Moyie City when she  has a population of 10,000 inhabitant,.

Shooting;  Ail'ray Kcar Kuslcouook.  , /Louis Lamont7irrived heie .Thurs-  dp.y evening from Kuskonook, the  pre-ont western terminus of thc  Crow's jMest road. Ho reports being  almost an eye "witness to a shooting  affray which occur ret] near McLean's  camp, about 11 ;niles at this sido of  ,Kuskb*iOok, last" Monday morning in  which one man was killed and another  badly wounded.  It seems that an Irishman, whose  name we could uot learn, was acting  as fireman ol a gang of Italians on a  piece of work near that camp, when  "no beca'mo involved-in a quarrel with  twofjf-his men and 'discharged them.  The two discharged'daKOS went to the  cauip to get their time, but were unable to succeed for some unknown  reason. They again returned to where  they had been at work and renewed  the quarral with the foreman and in  the excitement oue of them pulled a  gun, which was immediately knocked  out of his hand and picked up by the  forema'n. Thc two infuriated dagos  then turned on thc foreman, and the  latter to defend himseli shot one of thc  men twice through the head and the  othor through the hip. Pic then  dropped his gun and fled for his life  towards Kuskonook, pursued by three  of the dagos armed with Winchester  rifles. Great excitement prevailed  among the dagos who had gathered  around the wounded men, but they finally become reconciled. Medical assistance was summoned aud the twoun-  fortuuato men were removed to the  hospital at Kuskonook, where the one  who was shot through tho ' head died  the next morning at four' o'clock.  Thc other man's wounds arc not at all  serious andlfo will soon recover. The  "man who dojiio=-the killing- gave, himself up to 'tlie authorities when he  reached Kuskonook. He claims the  shooting was done in self defense.  Gold Commissioner's Visit. '  i  J. F. Armstrong, the gold commissioner for the East Kootenay district,  was here the early p^rt of the \yeek  looking after the government's interests. The fourth of the laqd of the  Lake Shore addition, which belongs to  'the government, will soon be put on  the market.  <( Mr. Armstrong also inspected the  wagon road between Fort (Steele and  this "place. He reports it being in  very bad condition in' sorno places,  and says the government will take the  matter in hand and^fix it between the  head of the lake and Cranbrook, the  portion-"which he considers needing  fixing most. When 'asked regarding  the' portion of tho road in East Kootenay between this place and Goat Uivor  landing, he said that the tote road was  still in the hands of the railway company, and would be until tt-.e railway  was completed. Th^t at tfte' expiration of that, time, if there was traffic  enough Jo justify keeping the road  open and in repair, the government  would most certainly take the matter  in hand and do so.  LOCAL BRIEJ'S.  Jluilri.:��a IV or It Vi-ogrcssing;.  From one end of Moyio lake to the  other, a distance of about 10 miles,  the grading of the Crow's Nest road is  now being pushed with all vigor, and  it will not be long until that portion  ot the road will be completed. On account, of the road running close to the  lake shore, the contractors did not  have the amount of snow to hinder  them that the .'contractors of other  portions''of th'ei road, had to contend  with, and they consequently have had  few delays.  ���McBeth and Peters, whose contract  is near the head of the lake, expect to  finish their work about the latter part  of June, and Cowan & Co. are working  full forces' on the tunnel and will  probably have their work completed  about the same time- Between hero  aud the foot of the lake squads of  men are also at work blasting and  grading. The right of way through  town has been cleared and the graders  will soon be here. As yet the depot  site has not been decided upon, but  it is generally believed that it- will be  located about on the lino between the  Moyie City townsite and the Lake  Shore addition.  Moyio Citv's First Show. t  The spacious hall in connection with  the Lake Shore hotel was comfortably  filled with people last Monday evening to witness the first theatrical performance ever given in this oily. Bin  and Viola, the stars of���the company,  made a decided hit with their farce  comedies, singing and musical specialties. Mr. McCleary's rendition of the  Mocking Bird and imitations of' the  railway-train and fox hunt on the  harmonica are especially worthy of  mention, and Miss Viola proved herself a balladist ot more than' average  ability, and fairly captivated the  audience with her sweet, lyric voice.  Tlio War Still Goes On.  M. McGinnis and A. Doyle, who arrived here yesterday from Fort Steele,  say that the latest dispatches from the  United States report the war still' rag-  giu with all. fury.* That the United  States up to that time had captured  15 Spanish vessels, but that Spain had  captured, the Monitor, one of the  United' States' best battle, ships. It  also stated that the ���insurgents were  marching towards Hayana.  Doyle I'aid tlie Penalty.  'Thomas* Davis, alias Doyle, alias  Sullivan,-was executed at Nelson one  week ago yesterday, and paid the penalty for tho cold blooded murder of  a laborer named Dennis Connors''at  Kuskonook on the evening of the 13th  of last February. The -execution  passed off without a hitch, the hang-  man 'doing:his work in a thorough  manner.        , ���    '     "'������''        ,    ���  Boats Keaclied fort Steele,  The steamer J. D. Farrell at Fort  Steele last Thursday evening, and was  met at the wharf by the band and a  large crowd of people, and tho North  Star arrived the following day. The  water in the Kootenay riyer is rising  rapidly, and it is thought that regular  trips can be made during the remainder of tho season..  W. c.S.

Rose, one,of* the clerks in McMahon Bro.'e store/is building a pleas*  ure boat which promises to be one of  the swiftest boats on the lake when  completed.  Chas. Diamond, who was   out prospecting for S. A, Scott last  week, succeeded in staking  two  claims a few  miles from town   which  are   reported  to havo splendid surface showings.  E-jMiles Lawlor left  this week  for  Coal Creek to look for   a  business   lo-'  cation.    If  satisfactory  arrangements,  aro made, Mrs. Lawlor will soon  leave  here to join her husband.  Ben Murphy succeeded in making a  catch of 20  pounds of  fine  speckled  trout one day   tho   fore   part   of  the,,  week, the result of about  two hours'  fishing in the Moyie river.  Dan McDougald has just completed  building a boat for his own use. He  has christened it the "Gem," after tho  well known mining camp in the Cceur  d'Alone country of that name.  Ed Woods, who had charge  of  the ,  building of  the   steamer. Echo, will  leave tomorrow for Fort Steele  to  accept a-position from   the  government  to take charge of some bridge work. '. .��� ���  Work on D.J. Elmer's hew store in  the Lake Shore addition is steadily  progressing, and Mr.' Elmer will soon  leave for Nelson to purchase his stock  of goods. ' The building is 16x40 foet  in size, and is being well finished.  Jame3 Cronin, one of the owners of  tho St: Eugene mine, is expected here  from Spokane about tho 10th of May,  when active work will, be commenced  on the wagon road between (the mine  and this place, preparatory to building the aerial tramway.  The Moyie Leader plant has been  installed, with F. J. Smyth in charge.  As yet, he has given no reason why he  spells his name with a "y."���Cranbrook  Herald.

SATURDAY, APRIL 80, 189,8.  ���     r   *- . \  ITS FUTDltE ASSW^D.      ���  Considering   that the JJoyio   City  district is practically but a  fc\v  years  , old,   and  that  its  development   has  ' . been slow on account  of the  lack ,of  transportation   facilities,  during that  '   time enough wo,rk haa--been  dpns to  demonstrate b.eyond all doubt  that it  embraces within its limits the greatest  galena and gold ore bodies to, b.o found  in British Columbia.  "While (there are niany extensive  ledges, the one upon which the "St.  Jkigene, Lako Shore and a, number of  other proinising properties are located  must be admitted to be the (Strongest.  This mamnTjOth body of ore^ can be  traced for rpilos hack from the past  shore of Moyio lake, arid now it is believed by men of experience in mining  that it is a continuation of this same  lead which crops out equally aa prominently on the west shore of the lake,  directly opposite this place.'    '  At present the St. Eugene mine is  ��� the king-pin of the whole district, but  thero is tho strongest foundation for  the statoment that within a year4here  ���will bo'at least a dozen otherLmines  that will oroato as great a sensation as  that property. Mining men who have  been referring witli pride to the phc-  . nonienal,developments made by Rossland, now admit, after familiarizing  themselves with .the mines of this  section, that this will be tho futuro  mining center of the whole north.  To the average person, not given to  outbursts of enthusiasm,, these statements seem unreasonable, perhaps  beyond ,the probability of fulfillment,  but time will demonstrate that, those  assertions will be founded on truth.  Jtis now about time for another  great mining camp to make its appearance in the East Kootenay district, and if * millions of dollars worth  o^ rich ore in sight constitutes a rich  camp, then this is the place and Moyie  City will be its center, and it will take  place, in tlie front rank with such  .towns as Butte, Leadville and Cripple  Creek.'  of the nation, and maybe, in the oral.  a political revolution which would  drive., him from power, and which  might bring another dynasty to the  throne. Itis not .surprising that he  has decided to dnft v?i{.h f,ho war  sentiment pi his ccqntry.-^Spokesman-;  Review.  i Wfit iiUliTIiil 'liliaHila.1 Hindi jmllfiti HHWlli  i��a��������� nnirifciiiia  NO 1'OSTOFFICK VET.  Moyie City is yet without an officially appointed postmaster and post-  office, notwithstanding that she is  over a year old and one of the most,  if not the most, important points on  the Crow's Nest road between Fort  Steele ancl Nelson, lt is safe to say  that it costs thc people who get their  mail at this oflice from "f."30 to $50 per  month. They pay this money for a  privilege which should be granted to  them by the government froe of  charge. Beside this, Mr. F. I. Moore,  who is voluntarily acting as postmaster, does not receive one cent of  compensation for his labor, nor can  he lay claim to a salary until lie has  been officially appointed.  Tlie people have waited on the de-  piirtni'-nt to establish an office here  for such a length of time that now  patience has ceased to be a virtue.  Why the postofiice inspector has deliberately ignored the petitions -and  pleadings of thc people of this place  for a better mail service is hard to  understand. He bas indeed been  very lax in performing the duties  of his office in this instance, in fact it  , looks as though he has held his job  ; just about, long enough.  PREMTKB 9AGASTA.  Premier Sagasta has been a' conspicuous figure ih Spanish politics for  more than half a century. He is no  nov ice at, war or political crisis. He  has been a conspirator and an exile.  Once be was under sentence of death,  and was driven in disguise to France,  with the political bloodhounds of  Queen Isabella in close pursuit.  His is now a severe alternative. He  understands the temper of his people,  and knows full well the danger of  yielding to the United States' demands  for Cuban  freedom.   The alternative  war with the United States, the  loss  Cuba, the complete impovrishment  A question has arisen in the United  States, since ^yar lias be��v". cjeclared, as  to the power of the presidej*)(i to call  out the dift'eyent ctafce ruili(.iq.s in {lie  event of their con-ices being neeqed.  It is asserted by acme that {.he president as commander "in *c|iief of the  army has the po*jver to oj^1| clireetly  into tha service of the. nation the  militia wjthouL going through the,  formality of requesting the troops  from tho governor pf the state to  which tli,'ey helong. It is generally  recognized by authorities on military  law that the lftethod Gf getting militiamen into the, ''cervico oj tli.fi Tedera}  government is through the request of  tho governor for trpops. Tho latter,  as commander in chief of the militia,  may then give the niilitia an oppqi-'  tunity to volunteer, but yoluntpering  is not^oon^pulsory, for the militiamep  have bopn enlisted only in {.he sof-jripe  of the sta(.o for use only in tho statp.  The Moyie City Leader printed its  initial number last Saturday. We epp-  gratqlato Brothpr Smyth on the cap.  ital appearance of  the  first nuniber,  i  and particularly on the healthy tppp  of independence , and self-reliance  which characterises his writing. J.I is  a propitious omen for the whqlp dis?  trict.���rFort Steele Prospector.  Some people seem to be under the  impression that the Slocan City News  has suspended publication and that  its plant is now being used in ppb-.  lishing the Leader. That is a inis-  take. The News is still' running and  controlled by D. R. Young, who is  also publisher of this paper.  There are now enough children in  Moyie,City to justify the establishing  of a school, and parents are becoming  vory anxious that one   be  established.  Fort. Steele now has a postal savings  bank, and thus little by little the East  Kootenay towns are coming to the  front.  St. Eugene Hospital.  The formal opening of tho St. Eu*  gene hospital wil take place tomorrow  at three o'clock iu the afternoon.  Father Coccola will perform the ceremony of blessing the new institution,'  and afterwards will deliver an address  to those present". The Mission brass  band will be in attendance, and the  children of the Mission school will  sing a number of selections.  The new.hospital is a very handsome frame structure 4oxG0 feet,-two  and a half stories high, with basement  and a two story wing 18x26 feet. The  building stands in a plot of two acres  of level ground some distance back of  the mission buildings, and close to the  St. Mary's river. It is a very pretty  situation; the location, could scarcely  be better selected for hospital purposes.
