LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Government Agent Armstrong
wont down to Sund Creek to inaugurate a new waggon rond to
a settlement ho has christened
Jjangley, The Government contributed $200 towards the rond,
which is six miles long, aud the
settlers themselves, who number
seven, did the work, Mr, Ann-
strong states that there is some
good laini still open for settlement in that dislrict.
Messrs. Gilpin & Lindsay are
putting all addition about 12x60

Malcolm Mclnnes has returned
from a visit to Calgary, coming
via the Crow's Nest Pass. He
found the railway graded from
Macleod to the Pass, the ties
distributed and everything in
readiness for tho rails. The
track has been laid only about
ton miles out fruiu Macleod, but
a greal deal of tho most difficult
work had been dune and the remainder would proceed very
rapidly. Mr. Mclnnes reports
times good at Calgary, a more
bnyant reeling prevailing in the
business community than for
years past.
Tho Crow's Nest Railwuy tote
road, with its horde uf dollar-a-
day dagos, has almost reached
tho Kootenay Rivor. They will
continue on down the Moyio to
Kootenay Lake, after whicli they
will be discharged and sent adrift
to prey on the people of the
counlry. As the railway contractors were responsible for
tho bringing of those Italian
paupers into this country they
should also bo charged with the
responsibility of putting them
across iho border again. Lei'l
hero, they will largely Iimi their
way into tho jails and penitentiaries. Query?—Wore uot these
foreigners brought into Canada
in direct violation of the Alien
Labor law?
Business all right—No kick

Since the purchase of tho Port
Steele Opera House by H. D.
Henderson and those associated
with him, the work on the building has been resumed. It is intended to put in a nice little
stage, and during winter time
weekly performances will be
given. One half of the upper
floor will be given up to a hall
for societies, a much needed convenience in lhis city; while the
other half it is proposed shall bo
devoted to tho purposes of a
club. Some ornamentation is to
bo added to tho exterior of the
building, and when all has beon
suitably painted, tlie building
will present an attractive appearance.

PYRAMID KOOTENAY MIN13S.
One of tlie Most Promising Camps in
British Columbia.
The extensive development
work that has boon dune this
year on many mineral locations
on Pyramid Creek lias shown beyond any manner of doubt thai
a great mining camp will nexl
year lie established on thai
Creok. The most extensive op-
orators there are tlie Pyramid-
Kootenuy Company. Since June
last Capt. T. D, Perry has had
25 men constantly employed on
tho 1-1 claims owned by thai
Company on the Creek, and on
each of them not less than $500
worth of work has been done,
while on several two or three
times that amount has been
done. This will permit of the
whole of thorn being crown
granted this winter. The shortest tunnel or drift that has been
driven on any of them is 35 feet,
and the longest 72 feet. The
Ci unstuck so far seems to show
the greatest lead. The ininoral
is copper and silver; the paystreak is not loss than 12 feet
wide, and of extraordinary richness, a fair sample across the
vein assaying fully $1,000 to the
ton. Tho Granite, Washington,
and Milton claims are the next
most important. They all carry
galena and copper sulphides.
Next spring, as we mentioned
last week, a waggon road will be
built by the Company across
from tlie head waters of Pyramid
Creek to Mathew Creek, theneo
down that stream tu connect
with the St. Mary's waggon
road, and thus secure a good
line of communication with the
Railway and Rivor at Fori
Steele. Next your also a largo
air compressor plant will be put
in. and it is not improbable that
a couple hundred men will be
employed in the Company's
workings.
During the past summer these
claims have been visited by Professor Carlyle, the Provincial
Metallurgist, and several other
well-known mining exports, and
all pronounce them of wonderful
richness. Besides tlie 11 claims
owned by the Pyramid-Kootenay
Company, there aro a number of
others of almost equal promise,
but nothing more than assessment work has yet been done on
them. Work on the Pyramid-
Kootenay group has now been
closed for the season.
generally, and llie workingmau.
Thoy must have forgotten aboul
it, so we allude lo il here by way
nf refreshing their memory. Al!
they need to do would be to reduce lhe wages of tbe men a few
cents inure a day. anil il would
then lie found thai after tin* men
had satisfied Hie demands of the
company's boarding-house keeper and the company's doctor, hail
bought a plug of llie company's
tobacco, and had gazed once in
the direction of llie company's
paymaster's bag, tliere would be
nary a niclilo left tu bay whiskey
wilh. Why, the thing's as simple as rolling off a log. As il is
now, when a man has got to the
end of a month's work, and gol
through a merry little burl with
the company's boarding-house
keeper and storekeeper and whal
nol, tliat, which remains to him
is such a gauzy and intangible
trille that he can only smile.
And he can smile only about one
time, too. Tho temptation In
perforin the wickedness of this
bibulous cachinnalion should be
removed by such prudent deduction from his wages as wo have
mentioned above,—nr if not thai,
then lot the unctuous boarding-
house keeper finish the thing up.
To put the counlry lu all the expense of proclaiming the Public
Works Act and bringing in some
troops of Mouutod Police to
worry Hie heart oul nf thehonesl
licensed victualler is loo bad. A
man like M. 1. Haney, who draws
$30,000 a year nf Government
money because of his skill in
removing temptation in the
shape of wages from railway
navvies and the like, should nut
have needed this hint. He should
have completed his work ami received tho applause and lasting
adulation of every licensed publican in the district, besides the
undying homage of the sweet
boarding-hoiiseman, the incense
of whose worship would then
ascend forever into the heavenly
Haney's sacred nostrils.

Tlio C. N. R. tote road that is

MB. HANEY'S DUTY.
Public Works Proclamation—How to
.Avoid It.
Ill a short time a large number
of men will be employed along
the line of the Crow's Nest Railway at various places from the
summit of the Rockies to the
west of Moyie Lake. The Railway Company intend to have the
Public Works Act proclaimed
along the route of the Railwuy,
which will put a complete stopper on the sale of intoxicating
liquor Within three miles on each
side of the route of the road.
This will close up all liquor licenses within the area specified,
and a strong force of Mounted
Police is In be brought in from
Hie Northwest to enforce the
Act. The penalty for the first
infraction of tlie law is a lino of
$40, or three months' imprison
ment; a second conviction will
occasion the same fine, and tlio
guilty one will besides bo sent to
gaol for six months, These are
pretty heavy penalties, There
iis nothing said iu the Ael regarding a return to people who
have paid license fees, of lhe
proportion of tbe fen fur Hie unexpired term. It will certainly
bo somewhat tough mi lhe dealers tu have in close up their
linsiness, and get no advantage
from the license fees thoy have
paid.
'I'he railway company might
have secured immunity from lhe
operations of the liquor dealer
iu n much simpler, more satisfactory, and less expensive way,
alike lo llieiusulvos, the country
Elk River Tunnel.
It is reported that Engineer
Cranston has at length discovered a method by whicli the Elk
River tunnel on tho C. N. Railway may be avoided. It will
necessitate a -15 foot cut being
made.
The Shooting' Unjustifiable.
Tho Coroner's jury which investigated the doath of Hie striking miners at Lattimer, after an
hour's deliberation, rendered the
following verdict: "That from
tho circumstances of the case,
and the evidence offered, the
said Clement Platock aud others
came to their death by gunShol
wounds on September lllth, at
tho hands of Sheriff .lames Martin and his deputies, and in this
we, the jury, do all agree, and
wO'do further say that tlio sail
Clement Platock, and others
were inarching peaceably and unarmed on the public highway,
and they were intercepted by the
said SherilT Martin and his deputies and mercilessly shot In
death; and we do further find
that the killing was unnecessary,
and could have been avoided
without serious injury to either
person or properly; and we lind
finally thai tlie killing was wanton and unjustifiable,"
The verdict wus not unanimous, lour favoring it and two
dissenting,

TROUBLE ON CROWS NEST R. R.
Canadian Workiugmen Refuse to Submit to Imposition.
Whal has all along been expected tu occur nn llie Crow's
Nesl Railway lias uow taken
place. During iliis week between HO and inn Canadian working men arrived al Godfrey's
Camp, situated aboul 15 miles
above Coal Creek, They came
out from lhe East ou an agreement to work I'nr $-15 a month,
In be charged $3,50 por week fur
board, and tn have their railway
passages nut free.
Ou arrival al lhe Camp they
found that by some counting-
house manipulation a month was
lo he made up of llu working
days, and as during the llu days
in a calendar month tliere an*
four Sundays on which no work
would be done, tlie working
month was lo cover a period of
ill days, lhe four additional days
tu make up for the Sundays.
They also found that they
were lo be ohargod $30 for transportation, the amount to be do-
ducted off their first earnings.
Tliu board they wore to gol
for $3.50, had when thoy reached
Godfrey's camp risen to $5 per
week.
Crawford's camp is tn bo used
as a whiter camp, and the men
located tliere to cut oul the right
of way over a long section of llie
railway between this and nexl
spring. When the new Canadian
arrivals found how Ihey wero to
be treated, Uiey held a meeting
to take lhe situation inlo consideration. It was shown that a
direct breach of agreement was
contemplated by Ihe Railway
authorities, Tn begin work nn
lhe terms proposed, would mean
that at 'he oud nf tlie lirsl month
they would slill lie $5 in debt to
the Company.
The agreement respecting
transportation, wages and board
are in writing, and a resolution
was passed refusing lo submit In

lo be inllicted, to return Eiistmid

Company for breach of contract,

state that after paying for oats,

of all this is thai supplies are

A proclamation of the same
nature in this district would not
only work a hardship on people
who have established hotels al
various points along the line,
but would be quite unnecessary
to achieve everything that the
proclamation is intended to
achieve. The object of course
is to prevent drunkenness
among the employees of the railway. Thero is much to be snid
in justification of anything that
will effect Unit purpose, and as
has been mentioned in another
part of this paper a good deal
has already been done to minimise the chances of that contingency. But in proclaiming the
Public Work's Act ill this district
it should not be proclaimed in
"blanket" form covering n slated
area for u statod period, for
iustanco, this winter the work-
over the wliolu of llie line will
not be general, but large gangs
of men will bo oiiiployed nl various widely sepiiraled points
where work of a eluirnelor that
can lm economically carried
on in Uie cold weather will
lm proceeded with. At Klk River
and Moyio Lake doubtless thoro
will ho largo gangs of men cm-
ployed this winier, and tho proclamation should lliorol'oro be of-
fi'i'livc only within a cortain
distance of those points. This
would serve Uie whole purpose
of lhe proclamation of tho Acl
as elToctivo'ly as if it were made
to apply lo lhe whole lino, while
at tho same lime it would avori
an injustice lo licensed vicinal
lors located at points on llie road
where bodies of workmen will
nol be. employed Ibis winter,

PIKE PROTECTION.
The Committee on Fire Protection, unpointed at the former
mooting, reported lhat they had
considered lln* subject, and found
thai lhe waterworks would now
be completed at so early a date
tliat lo do anything of a substantial nature in llie wny of erecting tanks, ele.. would be useless,
as by llie lime they were com-
pleted lhe introduction of the
Company's water system would
have rendered them unnecessary. However, tho work of
forming a brigade would begone
on Willi, und implements would
be provided for their use. They
would also urge a most careful
inspection by tho Fire Wardens
of all buildings iu tlie cily, and
such measures us wore possible
to prevent Ure would be taken.

Il wus nuts for him, to be sine.
The only possible rivals of the
delectable Cran-berry knocked
out hi one round and finished

so, but no doubt he thought it
singular that lliu Railway's Laud
Commissioner should como armed
with all the secrets at Hie end of
his tongue as to where a railway
whose line had not yet been located and the location of which
is a inatter for the Dominion

A Rod-Handed Revenge,
Word comes from Nelon,

reached thero to the effect that
Manager Keaue of the Cariboo
at Camp McKiuney, who shot
and instantly killed Martin Roderick last winter on lho suspicion tliat he was Uie mail who
relieved Geo. B, McAuloy of the
Cariboo gold bricks, was shot
from his horse, some time Thursday by an ambushed assassian
on the road between Camp McKiuney and Hock creek and not
far from the scone of the celebrated holdup,
Keano left llie Cariboo mine
Thursday morning intending lo
ride to Midway on. business and
Thursday afternoon a putty of
prospectors found his dead body
lying iu the road.
He had been killed Iiy a heavy
bullet which struck him in lhe
left side of the abdomen and
ranging upwards camo out under
the right arinpil. All lho surroundings would seem to indicate that he was murdered by
someone who lay in ambush al a
turn iu lhe road ami lired before
he had an opporluily lo ilefeml
himself.
No tritco of lho niurilerer hns
boon found aud no clue lo his
idontiiy can lie obtainod, but it
is supposed the murder was coiu-
mit.;d in revenge of Hie killing
of Martin Roderick, by Keaue,

murderer was tlie brother of

Approvance of the Oity and District as Seen by Official Eyes.
The fifth report uf tho Department of Agriculture of Hrilisli
Columbiii has jusl beon issued.
li contains tho following, whicli
is uut without interest lo the
people uf this city and district:
Furl Steele is the must southerly point visited in Eusl Kootenay. li is unparalleled inuil llu.'
uppor country fur lliu beauty of
its situation ami surroundings,
and being, as it is, lho centre of
a lim' agricultural ami rich mining district, and mi tin* line of
tin.' Crow's Nest Pass Hallway,
there is every reason lo believe
that this section will, ere long,
attain a first rank in lhe districts
uf the Interior. 'I'he lown, in
which there are several stores
aiul hotels, is situated on a high
bank overlooking the placid
waters uf the Kootenay] the
laud lying tu ilu* back i.s level,
ami uni very far away are the
stately Rockies. Tlie river,
whicli is navigable fur steamboats down tu ihe boundary and
up tn Canal Plat, is spanned
with a good draw in it, whicli
connects roads leading lo (.'ran
Creek, utu* uf tho Hnest ranches
in tin* country, and wilh Sl. Eugene Mission un St. Mary River,
which debouches into llie Kootenay just above tin.' bridge, Tlie
road from Windermere, with the
exception uf some rather steep
gradients un the Columbia and
rather dusty, in good, tlie distance being-- to Canal Flat, 28
miles; fruiu Canal Flat to Sheep
Creek, I- miles; from Sheep
Creek tu Wasa, I" miles; train
Wasa tu Furl Steele. KI miles;
in all about 76 miles. Above
Wasa i- a ferry across llie Kootenay, by which access i.s had to
lhe road leading tu the tanious
North Star and Sullivan groups!
of mines. There is a public
school ai lhis point; the Sis'ers
of Charily also have an exeellenl
schuol for native children at St.
Eugene Mission, where practical
education in agriculture is afforded by the operations carried
on under (lie auspices of llie
Mission. Tlie fruit trees inspected all looked woll.
Mr. C. M. Edwards, Mining
Recorder at Port Steelo, reports;
Tin* summer, generally, has been
free fi'uiii frosts, and Ihe fruit
trees lately planted have thrived
well; un une Siberian crabapple
tree, only three and a half feel
high, ihere were counted sixty-
live apples. 'I'he winter, un the
whole, ha.-, been very mild, Willi
the exception uf aboul eight
days uf very cold Weather al lhe
end uf November,
Mr. li. I..'I', (lalbrailh reports;
Wheal, uut.-., barley, peas, and in
favourable localities Indian corn,
are grown, tlio yield being nbout
utu* third less lhis year un lie-
cuniil uf lhe very dry season. It
would be belter to buy Hour Ihan
lo mill wheal here. Peed hugs
and make bacon and pork, which
always bring a good prion aud
ready sale. The production of
wheat fur milling purposes is
mil pi'ulilable; labour is loo high,
and lluiir can be imported cheaper. The principal grasses are
timothy, rod top, and blue joint;
clmer is nul much used; hops
can be successfully cultivated.
Prints given fair yield, considering that lhe lillie orchards
were only planled a few years
age; the crops were nol affeeled
by frosl ur weather, nor by posts
of any kind.
Cuttle raising is a successful
industry; horses have not. been
pi'ulilable; nut a profitable dislrict iur sheep; swine and poultry imi prosecuted with any system, though roinunorativo; llie
real cause is, however, Ihal su
lew ui the [manors are married,
as iilteii ihe fanner lias lu leave
homo from time to lime to attend
lu other matters, and there is nu
one left lu look after lhe chickens, etc Tin* farmers are too
far apart tu establish a creamery; thero is plenty water for irrigation.
Yellow pine, black pine, bull
pine, lir. tuinaruc, sprue* and
cedar are easily procured, mostly

there lasl spring lo got employment, bul found it impossible,
owing lo all tho domestic positions being taken up by Chinamen. She became almost dis-

that there was u big demand for
men. "I conceived llie idea,"
sho writes, "that I should dun
male attire and masquerade ns a
man. 1 weigli 105 pounds, am
tall and have been list d to bard

Both properties were located
