Our Lumlier Supply.
The E. .1. Schagel Lumber Co,
have let a contract for one half
million feet of saw logs to be cut
on Wild Horse Creek within a
half mile of the city. This is
tlie lirst contract of a total of
two and a half millions of lumber which tlie Schagel Company
will cut this winter in preparation for llie building operations
at this cily next spring, Mr.
Schagel has gone out to Kalis-
pell where he has some milling
interests, und will return about
the i ew year to start his mill up
here. Lust spring Fort Steele
was badly handicapped by nol
having a sufficient supply of
lumber on hand, but tliat error
is not to bn repeated the coining
■season. With two and a half
millions in readiness, it is
thought the local mills will be
able thereafter to keep up with
the demand.
THERE WILL BE TROUBLE.
British and French Troops  in Wost
Africa Will Collide.
ISpcolul despatch to The Prospector.]
London, Dec. 3,- The situation
in West Africa is very grave.
Tliere i.s no foundation for the
report of an engagement between
French and English troops but
more English troops ure being
sent to lhe locality, it i.s suid a
collision is bound to occur.
In spile of lhe cheery optimism of the Colonial offices of both
Great Britain and Prance, the
rumors of n conflict ut Nildri, between lhe French nnd llrilish
forces, is a matter of the great-
es' gravity. The reasons for
disbelieving tlie reports ure nu*
from convincing. Since the initiation of the policy of sending
armed hands from Dahomey and
Lagos, led by European officers
to assert the authority of their
respective nations, and grub anything in sight which might still
be unoccupied, it bus been obvious that a collision was bound
to occur, sooner or later, liolh
governments huve been warned
to recall these roving expeditions, and lo await the settlement of the Delimitation Commission, now sitting in Paris. It
i.s difficult to apportion the blame
for lhis slate of affairs. That
the French initiated the system
of raiding the contested territory
in West Africa, i.s indisputable,
but the ''Colonial Columbus," us
Sir William Vernon Hurcourt,
the Liberal leader, has nicknamed Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,
tlie Secretary of Stale for the
Colonies, has made what some
think a false step in following
suit. It Iscpmputed thut, when
Hie forces in process of being
dispatched tiro joined to the
troops already there, Groat
Britain will have 250 officers and
non-commissioned officers, and
4,000 troops in West Africa.
SENSATIONAL   ARRESTS.
Tho Mayor of Spokano and Soveral
Citizens Onthorod In.
A sensation was created in
Spokane recently by lhe arrest
of the Mayor of the city and
several very prominent citizens,
charged with having as oflieers
of the now defunct Citizens' National Bank, received from Postmaster Howard T. Mullon deposits aggregating #8,110.44 when
they knew the bank was in an
insolvent condition. Tlie men
arrested besides the Mayor wore
Eugene B. Hyde, capitalist, and
brother of former Congressman
Sam Hydu; Daniel F. Wetzel,
tho prominent jeweler; Arthur
A. Newbury, president of the
Spokano Mining Stock Exchange
whon thul institution wus running last spring; and W. .1.
Dwyer, nowu well-known citizen
of Medical Lake.
The money deposited by the
Postmaster was Government
funds, and efforts have been in pro
gress to Induce the Government to
submit to the loss, but this they
decline to do, and are about to
enter suit against tho Postmaster
for the amount. Hence Ihe Postmaster's action in having the directors arrested. If his action
had been delayed another inoutli
the statute of limitations would
have barred him from suit
against them. All the men arrested have been liberated on
buil,
A Big Contract.
It is reported that Messrs.
Armstrong and Glendinning
have received tlie contract for
the whole of the grading and
rookcutting on the Crow's Nest
Railway from the head of Moyio
Lake tu the north of Goat Rivor
on Koolenuy Luke. This is a
pretty big contract, about 70
miles,-—but tbe firm are pretty
big contractors. They will prob
ably have from 1,000 to 1,500
men employed.
A Bridge Wanted,
(iii Thursday a number of citizens interviewed Government
Agent Armstrong urging the
need for a bridge across Wild
Horse Creek beyond the Indian
Agent Es office, so as to avoid tbe
two or three miles of extra travel
to go found by the present bridge
Those present ut the interview
were R. L. T. Galbraith,.). Du-
rick, Ur. Wult. H. 1). Henderson,
,1. 11. Fink, und Win. Huillie.
The matter was discussed ul
some length, Mr. Armstrong
agreeing that such a bridge wns
much needed. The cosl of tlie
bridge nnd approaches he
thought might run up to eight
or ten hundred dollars, and ns
he hud no fund for the purpose
ho would huve to make u special
application to the Government,
which he promised lo do without
delay, and he thought it probable thut the application would be
grunted.
A Promising: Property.
Messrs. Watson, lloggiirth and
Usher huve given H. H. Brown
u six-month's extension of the
bond on tho Molly Buwn, Twilight and Cuckoo mining eliiiins
on Hull River. A good deal of
work has been done on tho Twilight, and it Is showing up finely.
Assays from lhe ledge give i>0
oz. silver, 7 per cent copper, und
#4 in gold, witli about (10 per
cent, of lead. The ledge is about
1 feet wide, and a tunnel is being
run in on il. Mr. Brown intends
lo push development work on
theso claims energetically during
this, winter.
Toto Road Westward.
Work bus been proceeding
very energetically on the Crow's
Nesl Railway tote road westward from Wardner and eastward from Ihe moulli of (lout
River on K'ooteiiny Lake. The
parlies expect to meet today,
Somewhere nboul the southern
end of Moyie Luke. A lirst cluss
tote road bus been made, the
error of running it over low-
lying ground which has caused
so much trouble on the tote roud
eust of Kootenay River, having
been avoided. With this road to
Kootenay Lake completed, there
will be no difficulty in getting In
supplies from the west and the
conditions for tho rest of the
season in the construction camps
will bo greatly improved. The
heavy frosts of the post fortnight will now have hardened
the i'liiiii through (Vow's Nest
Pass, uml opened communication
with the distressed camps there.
An Importation of choice cigars und tobaccos of the favorite
Brands bus just be .received al

ST. ANDREW'S DAY.
A Most Successful Celebration by tho
Local Scotchmen.
"A Ublol's alnuliK .v,' Iiiklli' nuns
All' (ulth Imil prctit It."
There could have been no happier result of the labors of the
Committee of the Fort Steele St.
Andrew's     Society    than    the
splendid celebration of the Patron Saint of Scotland whicli
took place at the Dalgardno
Hotel on Tuesday evening lust.
The spacious rooms of thut largest hotel in the city were
thronged with ladies und gentlemen, Ihun which we venture to
say none merrier assembled the
world over with a similar object
iu view. There were about lad
people present, a mini ber coming
from Crunbrook, Moyie, Wardner and other places.
The committee ure to he congratulated on the very pretty
decoration they hud made of the
ball room. It was garlanded und
festooned with evergreens which
were brightened up with many
designs in vari -colored papers,
presented a most brilliant appearance. The room is the largest in llie cily und it was jusl
comfortably tilled with dancers.
The music wus furnished by
flute, violin, piano, and cornet,
played by Messrs. Grez, McMillan, Cunn, und Lindsay, who
made up probably the strongest
musical combination thut has yet
appeared ut n public bull in Fori
Steele.
The guests begun lo arrive
about nine o'clock uml half an
hour afterwards lhe ball was
opened with a grand murch. At
in o'clock the dinner began, It
was preceded by the ceremony of
the Haggis procession, the chief
dish of tlie occasion being curried aloft while P. I, Laing fob
lowed with the bagpipes playing
merrily und following him a lino
of lhe members of lhe St. Andrew's Society. They marched
twice around the large dining
room nud finally came to a halt
ut the head of the table whore
the Haggis, with due decorum,
as befitting a ceremony of so
much Importance, was deposited.
The guests thereupon took their
scuts und the dinner began,
The heart of Mine Host Mather hud evidently been in liis
work, for no finer spread wus
ever soon in the district. The
tables, which were very prettily
decorated, fairly groaned under
the load of good things which
Mr. Mather had provided, a fuct
that will be fully borne out when
one comes to soan the following:

Before proceeding with the
dinner Mr. Laing gave n lively
skirl on the pipes, then nil sel
heartily lo work on lhe good
things provided. Mei'rinieiit und
laughter wus iu every fuee, uud
it was a guy und joyous lime Ihe
hour spent at the board, Though
the tables seated upwards of mo
peoplo, it was necessary after
the first party lind dined that a
second table should be set for
the remaining members of the
company, and this one wus of
like merry character witli the
first.
Meantime dancing hud been
continued in the hull, und thus
sped the time till hull' half past
twelve o'clock, when the covers
having been removed, the chairman of the evening, Dr. Wult,
invited the company buck to the
dining room, while the toast list
was being proceeded with.
The first toast wus "Tlie
Queen," which was drunk wilh
great enthusiasm, and was followed by the singing of tlie Nu*
tionul Hymn, while all tlie guests
rose to their feet.
The chal-.tt.an then in u neat
little speech proposed ''The Day
We Honor." This wus coupled
with tlie name of Wm. Huillie,
who gave in brief form tlie sal-
ieul points in the recorded life of
St. Andrew, aud narrated the
traditions of St. Regiilus or St.
Rule und St. Andrew, und how
the latter cumo to be chosen the
patron saint of Scotland. Mr.
Laing sang "A Scotchman Born"
in capital voice, and was loudly
applauded.
The next toast wus "Tho Lund
we Love," witli a very happy response by R. L. T. Galbraith,
who astonished most of his
friends by claiming a purely
Scottish descent, though born
(unluckily) in Ireland. He spoke
glowingly of the high eminence
of Auld Scotia amongst the
nations of the world, her poets,
her soldiers and her statesmen.
"The Lund We Live in"
brought Henry Kershaw to his
feet, and he mado a most humorous   uud   entertaining speed
raceful reference to lhe splendid success that had been achieved by Mr. Mather in the grand
spread he hud prepared for
them, and whicli they hud ull so
much enjoyed.
Back again all the merry company flocked to lhe ball room,
and dance followed dunce till the
"we sniil'ooi's"wei'e well worn
out, und thus wus closed lhe
Hnest celebration of ils kind thut
bus yot taken place in Port
Steele.
This writing musi not be
closed without giving due credit
lo the Committee of St, Andrew's Society, to whoso exertions must be attributed in large
measure the success of the celebration. Fred Binmore, us chairman of the committee, was indefatigable in his efforts, and contributed largely to the evening's
enjoyment. In the bull room,
where Air. Hazan officiated us
Muster of Ceremonies, he could
not have been spared. Messrs.
Smith and Lamont received the
guests and saw Ihem ull properly bestowed with u grace and
cure that left nothing in that respect to be desired.
In the banquet hal'Mr.McLeod uud Mr. Grassiek were
assiduous in their attention to
guests, uud Mr. Elton's und Mr.
Blnmore's efficiency us carvers
could not huve been dispensed
with. Messrs. Shier. Thompson,
und Morrison were general overseers of things, and no part of
their responsible duties wus
overlooked. The committee
could not have desired u greater
success than wus achieved.

the satisfaction wus mutual there
wns uo chance of uny possible
disagreement.
Responding on behalf of the
St. George's Society to the toast
of "Our Sister Societies," E. A.
Elton spoke of the history of tlie
two great nations Scotland und
England, occupying different
portions of one small island, ut
mortal feud with each other for
many centuries, but at length
happily joined in Kingship by
one monarch who in Scotland
wns James tbe Sixtli and iu Eng-
land wus James the First. The
legislative union came later, and
the combination hud produced
the greatest Empire the world
had ovor seen. He spoke of
Scottish bravery on tlie Held of
battle and referred to the glorious charge of the Highbinders
at Dargai, as instancing that
what had mude Britain great in
the past would still maintain her
supremacy in tlie future.
R. L. T. Galbraith responded
on behalf of St. Patrick's Society, und eloquently spoke of the
glory of the Green Isle.
Mr. Laing sang with grout
spirit und effect tho soul stirring
"Scots Wha Hae," whicli elicited
loud applause,
To the toast of "Our American
Cousins," there wasa quartette
of gontlemen from the lund of
the Slurs Stripes who spoke for
their native land, namely,
Messrs. Frizzell, Sheppai'd, Keep
und Scbugel. All spoke with
enthusiasm of tlie Greal Republic and all paid fitting tribute to
tlie Sons of Sf Andrew.
"The Ladies" found u happy
sponsor in Mr. Robertson, whose
wit and gallantry wus fully
equal lo the occasion. The
toast of "The Pross"and" The
Host" brought the list to a close,
and the Chairman in proposing
' tlie  hitler  toust  mude a most
of his conference wilh Ihe American statesmen:
"I have taken advantage of
the occasion to discuss wilh the
President und lending members
of his Cabinet many other inter
national questians which have
given rise to trouble und irritation between tbe two countries.
Prominent amongst these were
the alien labour law, lhe great
lakes fisheries, the North Atlantic fisheries, and the United
States tariff, us it especially
affects Canadian interests, lt
was plain the seal question
could not be settled by itself; il
could only be considered in connection witli other irritating and
important questions. You may
say, vory emphatically," said
Sir Wilfrid, "that there is no in
tentlon whatever of negotiating
any reciprocity treaty which
would interfere with or affect
Canada's existing British preferential tariff, This is well known
to American statesmen here,
What bus been discussed, however, is the reciprocal abolition
of the duties on coul, lumber und
fish, liny, potatoes, hurley, eggs,
und oilier similar articles. We
ure to have another interview
with the gentlemen especially
named by the President, lo talk
over these mutters wilh us, und
at present it i.s premature to express uny opinion us to the possible or probable conclusions."

Whole pages of some of the

were taken up with advertising

'Old seeker lo work hard is the
tho winning factor. There will
be awful hardships among the
people of Dawson C'uy and every
town in the gold district.
There is no escape from Yukon
until the spring comes, and there
is no admittance. The Ice king
has placed an impassible barrier
around the gold district. Letters received by me from the
west state that all the boats aro
frozen in at various points along
the Yukon Hiver and will uot be
released until spring.
To toll of all my Interesting
personal experience on the Yukon from tlie lime 1 landed in the
Alaskan territory three years
ago, until 1 brought my wife and
family to New York and surprised tlie people in the assay
office on Wall Street by walking
iiion Ihem with samples of Klondyke gold, would require a great
deal more space than tliat alloted
me. There is one thing lhat
may be forgiven for telling with
pride—I am the father of the
lirst two white boys to be born
in the Klondyke gold district.
I went to Alaska with my wife
and two little ones and returned
witli the addition of two to my
family, both children having
been Klondyke babies.
When I struck the Yukon with
my wife and children three years
ago I made for Glacier Creek on
British territory. land a partner had a claim which didn't pay
particularly well, and in order
to add to th'

claim that sold for a song is now
held at $21111.000, and innumerable instances could be given
of similiarly extraordinary rises
in value.
I remained at the gold lields
long enough to see Dawson City
rise in tlie wilderness like magic.
The boss of Dawson City, and of
the whole mining dislrict on the
Canadian side, for that: matter,
is Captain Constantino of the
Canadian police. His word is
law. lie ruled with a rod of iron,
but ihere was no murmuring,
Women came lo Dawson City
with the lirst rush from the outside world, and some of them
were not particularly scrupulous
regarding their attire or morals.
Captain Constanline, however,
11 proved lo be a Yukon Park-
hurst. I havo heard him order
off the street on penally of arrest a woman who ventured to
appear out doors in Dawson City
wearing bloomers. One girl paraded around dressed iu man's
attire, but Captain Constanline
quietly got after her and compelled her to change her trow-

the Northwest territorial law
only one saloon is allowed to

I am aware that there has been

Ho Givtit, Soma Good Advico to Intending Gold Sookoru.
Having been in llie Yukon
dulling tlie years preceding tlie
recent rich strikes, anil, with my
wife and family, having participated in all of the stirring scenes
of tho excitement attending tlie
extensive gold discoveries, I feel
that of all men I ant best fitted
to givo advice to those who intond to join the throngs that
will head for the Klondyke in
tho spring.
My first advico to the majority
of these who are preparing to
seek gold in Alaska is precisely
the samo as Punch's famous advico to those about to marry—
don't. To begin with generalities that are facts, it is cortain
that, for every dollar's worth of
gold taken from tlie Alaskan
mines a dollar is spent. Some
one must lose. A fow are lucky
and come out rich, It is a lottery, in which, besides the element of luck, tho ability of lho
bank 15 feet high by one of
George's Indians. Pretty soon
rumors of George Carmnck's
luck reached us and a stampede
in the direction of what is now
Dawson City begun.
I was then, with my family, at
Port Cudahy, my wife and Mrs.
Constantino, the wife of the captain of the Canadian Police garrison, and Mrs. Strickland, the
wife of the Inspector, being the
only white women there. My
partner and I struck for the new
found fields and located claims.
Now mark the peculiar fate that
forced riches 11)1011 the new comers, the greenhorns and the tenderfoot who Hocked to the Klondyke at the first news of tho
strike, and loft the experienced
old hands lo flounder along in
spot where only ordinary returns
could be had from the miner's
toil.
When wo old hands followed
George Carniack's trail and
reached the spot where he had
Incut ed we all jumped to the
conclusion that he had hit lho
hub of the yellow wheel and we
clustered around him, naming
tlie spot Bonanza Creek, and
holding on jealously to our
claims, totally unaware of the
fact that a short distance away
thore was a tract of soil so laden
with gold that in comparison to
it our Bonanza mine wus a delusion. Thon camo the rush and
everyone crowded around us old
miners and would have crowded
us out, but we drove the intruders away. Finding only a cold
welcome and uo nuggets at the
spot that was supposed to be the
richest in the district the newcomers took what they could gel
and struck for the small side
gulches and creek they named
Eldorado. It was from these
claims that the big fortunes wore
taken; fortunes that wu old
hands, like the fools wo were,
had forced upon tho nowcomors.

During this time my wife and
family of four children had been
at Port Canby, about 40 miles
away, where I had a log house
comfortably tilted up. It would
have been pleasant enough, and
I should probably have stayed
thero this winter but starvation
seemed to face everyone. I had
to buy condensed milk for my
two Yukon babies. It cost me iii
a can, and wo used two cans a
day. Flour cost $1 a pound.
Mooso hams were from %>4U to $sl>
apiece, and bacon cost from ifi
to §1.50 per pound. It was ruinous, so my wife and I decided to
pack our belongings and come to
New York for the winter.        i
Since reaching New York I
have been bombarded withcpies
lions from frionds and relatives
who are anxious to try their luck
in Alaska. So much nonsense
has been written about the Klon
dyke and so many erroneous
ideas are abroad that 1 intend to
start an information bureau to
prevent the mining district being over-run next spring by
people who have no business

When the Forty-Second Highlanders, or "Black Watch,"
landed in Calcutta in lho end of
1857, they were marched to the
Scotch Kirk on Sunday in their
full dross, with kilts and bon-
ni'ls. to the great admiration of
tho public, says an exchange.
Bul the mosquitos from a large
tanl; near tlie kirk smelt fresh
blood and invaded the sacred
building and soon found their
way to the unprotected parts of
the Highlanders' legs, especially
about their naked knees. For a
while the men endured it bravely. Then one soldier and then
another began to slap at the
mosquitos, until so many of them
were fiercely slapping al their
knees that the noise drowned
the preacher's voice and he
stopped his discourse so that the
men could be marched away to
iheir barracks,
HIS   JAPANESE   WIFE.
Sir Edwin Arnold anil His Spouse
in England,
Su* Edwin Arnold's marriage
in London to n Japanese lady,
presumably om* of those who returned with ii'mi from Japan a
few years iil'o. is likely to do him
a greal deal more harm than
good in every wny. In the lirst
pluee. it recalls lo lhe memory a
singularly displeasing and somewhal riilieiiloiis phase of tliu ca-
i i* of lho journalistic bard, who
excited so much amusement in
England hy his presumptions
candidature lo the ofrico of poet
laureate on tho death of Teimy
son. Ii wus ii phaso of which II
is unnecessary tospoakindotall,
hm tho charactor of which mny
be understood when it is slated
ihnt Miss Arnold,who Inul accom
yuniod her [athur to Japan, felt
herself compelled to desorl the
Toklo hoarth of her Infatuated
parent, whose notions as lo whul
constitutes pootic lisonso aro re
ported lo have boon of an oxtrom-
' ■> ■ lastic description. The pre-
nt in which the poor girl
found herself excited agooddeal
of openly expressed commiseration on the pait the Europeans
nnii Americans in Japan, and she
returned home to England alone,
saddened by the belief that Sir
Edwin was likely to spend the
remainder of his days amid the
so congenial surroundings of the
: far Orient.
■ lired   a  great  doal  oj
pressure on the pari of his
friends and employers in Europe
to induce him to return to his
journalistic labors  in   London.
1 and with manifest reluctance lie
finally turned liis back on the
Easl. nnii travelled homeward,
iwith a party of Japanese ladies
in his train, whom, however, ho
was very particular to keep secluded from tho publio view
passing through America.
In London these ladies have
occasionally figured atreceptions
and conversaziones, being introduced by Sir Edwin as somo
"very charming friends" of liis
from Japan. Sir Edwin's circle
is literary, rather than social. So
no questions were asked, especially as by some Sir Edwin is re-
garded as a poetic genius, and it
is the fashion toaccord'to genius,
no matter whether it be theatical,
artistic, or poetical, an indulgence which is not conceded to
ordinary mankind. It is one of
theso ladies whom Sir Edwin has
now married, in his 67th year,
thus calling attention to features
of the poet's existence, to whicli
people in England had shown
their willingness to close their
eyes, both as regards the past
and the present,
The marriage deserves alien-
tention since it is the lirst occasion of a Japanese woman be*
coming by matrimony privileged
to share un English title. From
henceforth the dusky dame will
have the right to stylo herself
as Lady Arnold, and lhe inferiors are expected to address her
as "my lady." There has been
an instance of a Brilisli poor
marrying a Chinawoman. There
are at least three members of
the British House of Lords who
hove married Indian Indies. The
widow of the late Earl of Slumlord, is a coal black Hottentot
Voniis. But the new Lady Arnold is the lirst .lupiinose to become air English woman of title.
Sir Edwin Arnold enjoys a
fur greater degree of celebrity
from a literary as well as a
sclontllle poinl of view in Amur-
ini (where he found his-second wife, ill llie person of Miss
dimming, of  Boston), than in
j England, In tho greal English
seals of learning the prulenslons
of lhe llllllllll'of "TllO Light or
Asia" lo n knowledge of Orenlinl

as his poetical efforts, and it is
signiflcanl that, although he
is a graduate of Oxford, he has
never yet been invested with
any of those academic distinctions and honorary degrees
which Oxford and Cambridge
are so fond of conferring upon
those Englishmen und foreigners who are regarded to have
attained eminence in science,
poetry, literature, or statesmanship.     	
Tho Pope's Condemnation.
Rome, Nov. 10.—Tho Pope
has condemned tlie Laurier-
Greenwity settlement of the
Manitoba school question. The
Pope declares that Catholics
must not attend the public
schools; that they must, liko
Roman Catholics everywhere,
loyally and obediently support
their own school system, even
whero tho Slate refuses to assist.
Still, His Holliness advises Manitoba Catholics not to be too
grasping and agressive, but persuasively, and by all peaceful
methods, to impress the jusl ness
antl fairness of their temporarily
lost cause upon their follow citizens of othor faiths, in the hope
that eventually their full rights
may lie restored.
Mr. Torts slated today that he
did nol believe that the Pope bud
ordered all Catholics lo slop going to public schools.
