At exactly 5:30 o'clock last Sunday
afternoon tho rails wero laid across
Queens avenue,' and at last, after
months of patient waiting, Moyie City
has a railroad.
■ It was a'great day for Moyie. From
the lime the puffs of smoke were first
seen issuing from the locomotive propelling the tracklayer the town was
thrown into a frenzy of excitement. Quite a crowd,went up the
grade to see the outfit at work,
and followed it along until it passed
through town. Never did a train of
cars look so pleasing to the eye, nor
the whistle of a locomotive; seem so
musical.
Since that time trains loaded with
steel and other material have been
passing every few hours day and .night,
and the tracklaying is being pushod
with all possible „speed. As .we go
to press the rails are laid about 20
miles west of here. A temporary siding was put in at,tlie foot of the lakej
which was used until yesterday, when
the outfit was moved on six miles
farther to Irishman creek.
. Moyie is already deriving considerable benefit from the railroad, as the
construction trains are carrying both
passengers and freight.

We Will Dave a Postoffice.
Contrary to the report published  in
the Leader last week, Moyie City will
have a postoffice by thefirst of October. ' - ,      *
The rumor circulated last week that
E. H. Small had refused to accept the
postofiice is.entirely without foundation. When Mr. Small was confronted
with the report he was quite surprised.
"I have no idea how the report got
started," he said, "as Mr. Fletcher and
myself had no such conversation. I
have accepted the office and will take
the oath of office today (Thursday,)
and also have a deputy eworn in.
However, the office will not bo under
the jurisdiction'of the postal department until the first of October, ,at
which time the official stamps, books,
blanks, etc., will be here, and • through
trains will ,be running"7 to carry
the mail."
Thursday night Mr. Small' and his
deputy, F. I. Moore, appeared before
Stipendiary Magistrate Sanders and
took the oath of office, The office
will remain in the store of the Moyie
Supply Co.
On the fourth page of this issue is
an editorial comment which was written and printed prior to the foregoing
information being learned. Since we
have a postoffico the comment is
amiss-

• It Pleated JVIr. Wallinger.   ,
■s N. A, Wallinger, .thft resident manager'for the Fort Steele' Development
Syndicate, inspected the workings of
the QueGn of ■ the Hills and Moyie
claims last Monday in the interest of
his company. He was more than
pleased with, the big strike which was
made about two weeks ago by Ike Wil
liams and his raen^
''There are 10 feet of ore in the face
of the drift," he said, "and all indications point towards its widening. I
wouldnot be at all surprised to see
the ledge widen to 18 or 20 feet within
'a short distance. One reason this rich
8"trike pleases me is because the property had previously been condemned
by^several. : exports, and,, mining
men.; When I first saw the property
I was convinced it was all right, only
"poorly handled, and now my convictions haye been sustained. I believe
there is an immense body of ore there.
On the surface there are • two distinct
ledges, but I am under the impression
that when depth is attained they will
drift into one large vein."
"When will "the working force on
the property* be increased?"
"Shortly after the last payment is
made, which will be in October. When
I return to Steele I will cable the
company in London of this last strike,
and will await their orders. There is
no question in my mind but the
last payment will be made, and when
done the mine will be operated on an
extensive scale."
This company haB other large holdings in East Kootenay, being also the
principal owners in the Kimberley
townsite, and the Minnie M.' and
Tiger mines on Tracey creek.
Later—Yesterday Captain James
Morrish, tlie syndicate's expert, in
company \Vith Mr. Wallinger, made a
thorough iim-sligatibn of the above
properties, as well as the St. Eugene
and Lake Shore .'nines. When Mr.
Morrish'd report is considered by the
syndicate, the final decision will bo
made, and in all probability tho last
payment will be made on the Moyie
and Queen of the Hillsi .      '
i'or a Constable.
A petition was circulated this- week,,
and signed by all the business men
and property holders,'.asking for the
appointment of J. M. Lindsay as constable for Moyie City. The town „at
present has riiounted police protection,
but they will be withdrawn'in'a few
weeks to the Northwest Territories,
they being stationed along the, liii'e
only temporarily under contract .with
the C. P. R. during the construction
of the new line of railway.
Abetter selection than Mr. .Lindsay
could not have been made. For several years he held a, similar position
in the east, giving the best ,of satisfaction, thus making him' eminently
fitted for the position. His appointment will meet with the hearty approval of every citizen of Moyie.

SATURDAY,  SEPT, 10, 1898.
3IOY/ t'S PROSPERITY.
The changes wrought in Moyie City
in  a    year   have    been    marvelous.
Phoenix like it has  sprung  iu   that
time from a cabin and a lew tout's in a
forest to the majestic proportions cf a
large and growing city,    This giowth
was not rapid but etcady,   and   the
buildings here today eland as evidence
of their permanency and tlie  well  directed efforts of their owners.
Not   only was  a, creditable   <town
" built'up, but an adequate ' amount .of
work was done in the mines surrounding and a sufficient <uaatity  of ore
•taken   out   fqi shipment to  demonstrate -beyond -the  shadow of  a doubt
the character'of these colossp.1 minoral
deposits.   Nor .has   this   work   -been
done at a .loss to  the owners,  for  in
nearly everj-caso  wherever $100 was
expended from $300 to $500 worth  of
ore has been taken out.
Now that the railroad has been built
tho mine owners will begin to ship
their ore and business in all branches
, -will forge ahead. From tho day the
•rails were laid to Moyie City . this activity has. been perceptible.
Moyie has an'ideal townsite, being
situated on the main line of a railroad
.and on one of the most picturesque
bodies of water in the country. It is
surrounded un all sides by .mines of
determined    value, ,and  has  enough
Appearing in a townsite  ad in the
Cranbrook Herald  is a map showing
the Crow's Nest road, and' most of tho
principal towns along that line.    It is
noticeable, though, that  Moyie  City',
which  13' of   equal   importance  with
Fort Steele, Cranbrook, or Wardncr,
is loft of the map entirely.    The  map
waa compiled under  tho  direction, of
the C. P. B.  company, and  of course
at their hands Moyie could not expect
any betier troatmenl.
The I-Caslo Kootenaian conducts a
column entitled Borrowed Wit; It
says: "Editors of exchanges aro invited to send us marked paragraphs,
as we find difficulty in detecting wit
in the papers of the northwest:" The
Kootcnain's "wit" man must bo possessed of an abnormally opaque vision
or ho would be able to delect the wit

timber at its command  to  supply  its
wants for years to come.
Since Moyie City has 'made such
wonderful progress during the past
year, being handicapped by having
the <■ crudest possible ' transportation facilities, her growth during the
coming 3 car will be simply phenomenal , and the prosperity which she
•will enjoy will outreach the most sanguine expectations of her host wishers.
Know "Where to Go. ">
A man went into a store in one of
our neighboring towns one da3r and
asked if he could rest four or five
hours! The proprietor, who had just
found a nest of new born mice 'in the
coffee grinder, told him he could, and
then asked him why he didn't go to a
hotel. The man replied: "I am suffering from tiorvous prostration, and
the doctor said to get a quiet placo' to
rest, and as I see you don't advertise,
I knew that I couldn't find a 'quieter
place." And with that he settled in
his chair and watched the swallows
build a nest in the cheese box.

The above is the heading of an article in the Ivaslo Kootenaian which
says:
"Complaint is made against some of
the newspapers of Victoria, Vancouver and other cities of British Columbia'because citizens of the United
States hold editorial positions on
these journals. It is a foolish bit of
hyper-criticisni which could emanate
only from thoughtless observers.
"We certainly should be as cosmopolitan as the people of the United
States. The New York World, one of
the most successful journals in the republic, is owned and published by a
Polish Jew. The Argonaut of San
."Francisco was founded and made
famous by a talented Englishman.
For many years the editorial genius of
the Seattle Post-Intclligcncer was a
subject of Great Britain, and who
would object to the Examiner because
one of its editors, Edward Cahill, is a
native of Dublin, Ireland? The proprietors and publishers of Puck, the
most popular of American comic papers, are natives of Germany. With
such examples before us, shall wo in
British Columbia exhibit to the world
a spectacle of national prejudice utterly devoid of eyery cosmopolitan
virtue?"

During the coming campaign the
Lhauer will support the man whom
it considers most capable of representing the people of South East Kootcnay
honestly and efficiently, regardless of
party affiliation. It is not in the
clutches of any clique, ring, corporation or individual, and is, therefore,
in position to use its own discretion
in the selection of its candidate to
Bupport.
When tho people of Moyie City
agree upon a man to serve them as
postmaster and his name is sent in for
tlie 'post.master general's approval,
they (should refrain, from-afterwards
sending in additional names. We
are without a postoffice today chiefly
bn account of such an error being
made. ■
J'It does beat all how cards will sometimes keep a-ruunin' all one way for
a long time," remarked Old Sclio, apropos of nothing in particular, during an
informal meeting of the Gladstone club,
as he toyed with a(stack of red chips,
which, like all their blue and white and
yellow companions in this city, have
become useless, except as counters
in'an innocent game of whist or casino,
since the reform wave came along and
closed up all the places where men used
to gamble on the green, says an Albany
correspondent of the New York Sun.
Old Scho heaved a meditative sigh, reflectively stroked his white chin whiskers, and looked up and around to observe whether an5' of the other members were listening io him. Having satisfied himself that thare were at least
tluree or four who were willing to give
willing- ears to the yarns that he spins
on the slightest provocation, or no provocation at all, he continued:
"I remember one night, years ago,
when Paddy Martin was running a
keno joint, up here in Broadway, I made
the biggest scratch of my life. It was
like this: I'm broke, an'I'm just going
out when a friend o' mine comes in an'
[ says to him: 'Lemme have ten. dollars, will ye?' He puts his hand in his
pocket nrni pulls; out ten dollars an'
gives it to me. I go in an' 1 bet just one
card, for a half dollar, an' 1 win the pool.
There was $77 in the i>ool. Well, I don't
play no more keno that night, hut 1
go over 1o the White house an' I go up
tigin the bank, au' I win $2,700. I sim-
pljr can't Iohc a bet. I win all the time
that night."
As those who had been listening were
old and well-seasoned members of the
Gladstone clnb, whose purpose is, and
is distinctly specified in its articles of
incorporation, the promotion of the
social enjoyment and intellectual development of its members, they did nob
show that they had been profoundly
impres.si.-d by Old Scho'snarrative. They
had often heard him tell similar stories,
nil of which he warranted to be true
in every detail. JJut the old man was
not discouraged by the apparent want
of appreciation on the part of his audience. With a little preliminary cough,1
which had no suggestion'of an apology .
in its sound, he .'began again:
"I remember another time, up in.Saratoga one night, I see Cull Holland
win $55 with two cents off the roulette
■wheel in Cale Mitchell's. Then he goes
over agin the faro (bank an' wins something like, $2,000."
This time the solemn-looking member, with the long, flowing, black mustache, felt himself impelled to ask:
"How could he win anything with
two oeuts? They wouldn't lot him put
it down," ,     '   , :
"Ob, yes they would, They'd let him
put anything down, even a brass button, and pay him.- too.    Of course, they
knowed him welj, a^' he'd been lc-dng
cjuiie a little money.'*,
A brief period of silence intervened,
.during which the old man gtrpk*ii his
whiskers three £imeg.     Tb-eii   1*8   resumed his fliscQ.ur&e;
' -''A^r' then again, Z-'vg eejgi^tpji n&rds
run agin aman.aUnigh,*.  .J. remember
one nighx .when j was jiea^ingr faro txuik
in Chicag-o, ther.e was a, xnsja playing—
he was .the brother of .some senator; I
forget hjs name now—An' he lose 33 beis
right straight off the reel.   Jle gets   p,
stand-off np.w an' then,' bui -he? never
picks-;ubei,off the layout.   Bimeby he
win a few bets,;but putty soon he lose
again, an-' along to'rds.midnightl guess
he'-s putty near,broke. -Ho reaches down
in his pocket and pulls out a SGO-bilJ, an
he hands.it over an' says:    'Put that on
the five.'       I put it ^n the five, an'-she
lose   the 'next turn,'' -.Well, that man
he just gave one gasp an' fell back in
his chair.       Sonic of Uig players that
was sitting 'longskle-of him began to
rub his hands, on' one. man called for
water.   They thought he'd fainted. But
i looked at him just once- an', I says:
'Oh, no, he ain't fainted; he's dead.'    Ye
see, I'd, seen a fellow-die just like that
onco before, an* I knowed the signs."
Then   the   solemn-looking  'member
spoke up again and remarked:
"Well,   now Pll tell you .people -just,
one little story.    It's little.'but it's true.'
T sec a fellow go- up against the   faro
bank up in Johnny Mnek's on<? night and,
he only has half a dollar to lx?g-in with, ;
and bfc'begins io play the high, card, and
I'm'blamed 'if he/Ion'£ beat.every turn
through a-flvhoie deaj, from'top to hot*
torn. At tho end of the deal he has about
$16:"   ,
"How much did he bet at a ,time.?"
asked the smooth-faced,' dark-haired
■merriber -with the streak, of gray .at his
■tempi ee.
"Only 50 cents, five white ehips.all
the way through the deal."
^Then he couldn't have had $16, even
if he beatever}' turn, for ;cher-e>a.re only
25 turns in a deal."
wAw, say, -you're too-particular. ' 'He
might have betaiitHe-ojore.toward^he
last.   Anyway, he had-about $16."
"Did he win.any .inoxe or did hedoso
it all again ?" inquired the member with
the .flowing gray mustacha ;and the
Elouchhati '■
"I xeally donffc knosv. ■ I came away
just then."
"You must have been broke,"
"Why?"
"Else a team of horses, couldn't hava
dragged you away."
"Oh, I don't know. I guess I've come
away winner as often as mostpeople."
"Yes, I guess that's so, too."
"Talk about being broke," resumed
-Old Scho, who had been smoking vigorously while the others were talking,
"reminds me of one time when me an*
another ^fellow out in Chicago run a
faro bank for three days with only $5
in. the bank roll. You 6ee, we had the
use of the rooms and the layout, but we
couldn't get ho money, so we just
thought wfi'd takeL a-chance. We had
several close calls. One time a fellow
had out about $200 worth of chips, but
he kept a-playing, an' of course he lose
it .all back -again. Another time some
small players got $4 of our $5, an' things
looked mighty blue for us. At last
there came along a fellow with a big
wad one night, an' the cards go agin him
from the start. Putty soon we had
about $1,000 of his money; then he
strikes a lucky streak, an' win it putty
near all back again, but he don't quit,
an' bimeby he lose again, an' he keeps
on a-losin' until about five o'clock in
the morning, when he gets up an' says
ho'a broke. An' how much money do
yo s'pose we win off that fellow?"
"Oh, about a hundred thousand,"
gravely remarked the solemn member.
"Probably abont a million, if we let
you tell it," said tho fat member.
Old Scho looked up with an expression evidently intended to be one of injured innocence.
"No, gentlemen," said he, "what I'm
telling you is the honest truth. Wo win
just $5,009 and not a cent more."
. "Is that all ?" asked the short, stout
member with the smiling face and the
stubby black mustache, in a tone* pf
deep surprise.
Old Scho took a few vigorous puffs nt
his pipe.   Then he began egam:
"Saj-, you people remember the time
when they used to deal draw poker
around the table, just like stud? Well,
in them days they used to give a prize
of $100 cver3' week over here in the
Whito house for the best hand held.
Well, one Friday night I sit in the gamo
an' putty soon I have four aces. That's
the best hand that's been held that
week, an' there's only one day left, so
my chances of getting the prize is putty
good. But a fellow who sits next to me
offers me $10 for my chance, on' I says:
'Give's yer $10.' , Some, of the other fellows says I'm fooliah; but I know what
I'm doing all the time. I know there
ain't nothing more uncertain than
cards. Sure enough, before I'd been
playing a great while longer I hold a
straight flush. An' I sell that, too.
An' I'll be darned if that wasn't beat
the next day by a higher straight flush."
"Scho, you're a bird," remarked the
fat member with great intensity of feeling, and several of the other members
looked at, the old man with renewed interest, noticing that he was getting
back into his GO-ycar-old form, when, as
all who know him will acknowledge, he
was at his best. .'
Thus 'encouraged, and refreshed with
a few more vigorous puffs at his pipe,
which perceptibly thickened the atmosphere of the room and gave the solemn
member a violent fit of coughing, he
came once more to the scratch, not the
least bit winded: ■
"The funniest thing I ever had happen
to me was one night when I was dealing
faro bank in New York. A man came
in who said he'd never played fn.ro bank
bcfore.an' he buys five dollars' worth of
him his money.   He takes it an* looks at
it a moment; then he hands it   back
again, all but $10, an' he says-to me:
'Here, take your money; Idon!twant-tc
take no -advantage of <jou.       I   only
wanted to .double rny-jnonej'.  >If it's so
easy tor a man to win who never played
£h& gapie before, what must it. be for a
piaa -who"knows how-to play?'   Well,
I nearly fell off the chair, but I don't
iet &n tnar, there's anything surprised
ine.   Z£aysi<?theEaan:    'My friend, you
■better-take your SM>ney • you win it fair
.an' square, an-" you may want it bimo-
r>y.'   Butr he won'jfc take it, so I put it
back in rhe.^rawer.an'hewaiks.out."
At this point ail the members arose,
formed a ^expici.r.ele in front £>f the old
man, bowed iow befoj£ hi'na, and Jheii
filtered out into thesiJe.n.t night.
