FORT STEELE, B. C. SATURDAY, JUNE 2o, 1898.
No 26.
this year Mr. Smith went to
work with u small force of mon,
determined to prospect and if
possible locate the vein proper,
In running an open cut just
ubovo the No, 2 shaft a large
body of iron carbonates was
found. Beneath this u body of
unchanged iron, which proved
to be the cupping of tho vein.
Thon the hanging wall was encountered; thon 20 foet of solid
galena, A crosscut has boen
run through the ore body, cross-
cutting the lead east and west.
The vein dips at an angle of 4")
degrees, and trends a little east
of north. The ore is a finegrained steel galena similar to
that found in the North Star
mine. Mr. Smith returned to
the mine on Friday.
The Sullivan group consists of
the Shylock, Hamlet and Hope
mineral claims, and is owned by
the Sullivan Mining Company of
Spokane. Among the principal
stockholders are Prank Hogan,
Prank Post, George Turner, W.

Smith and J. W. Clever. During tho past three years a large
amount of development work has
been performed on this property. Shafts have been sunk
and open cuts run. Oro can be
found in small quantities all over
the claims, On the Hope a small
vein three feet in width has been
uncovered for a distance of some
iii iff; and the finding of this large
body of galena and tlie hanging
wnli has settled Uie question as
to what was the true vein.

COUNTY COUKT OF KOOTENAY.
Hearty Welcome Extended to Judge
Forin by the Local Bar.'
The lirst sitting of tho County
Court of Kootenay was held in
tho Opera Houso, Port Steele,
on Monday, Juno 20th.
lleforo the legal business of
Ihe day was called, Barrister
Koss asked permission to make
a few remarks, which was grunted. Mr. Ross then, iii a few
well-chosen words, extended to
liis Honor, in the name of the
local bar and the general public
of Past Kootenay, a hearty welcome. Mr. Ross stated that it was
20 years since a County Court
Judge had visited East Kootenay: that the smallness of the
present docket was due to the
fact that a number of cases had
been settled by arbitration, and i
others had been sent to county
courts at other places, but now
that lhe local liar had a chance
to plead their own causes in
their own town, cases would be
reserved for his Honor's next
visit, Mr. Ross elosod his remarks by again
Honor to Port Stoele.
His Honor, in a few pleasant
remarks, thanked Mr. Ross and
thi.' gentlemen of tlie bar for
their kind welcome, and explained that Fort Sleele hud been
si ile-tracked in the past or. account of ils boing so much out
of the way and the greal loss of
dime in getting to and from lhis
locality; also to lite fact tliat the
legal business of West Kootenay
was large and increasing. His
Honor slated that there was
more business transacted in West
Kootenay than in all llie rest of;
Hie   Province;  that he had de-|	
livered 250 judgments last yeur. \"m b*V the next boat, and there i.s

REFUSED WOEK  ON RAILWAY
More Trouble Laborers in a Destitute Condition Turned Adrift to
Starve.
On Tuesday morning a large
crowd of Italian laborers arrived
at Port Steele in search of tho
Government Agent. They wore
entirely destitute, having neither
food, money or blankets. As
Government Agent Armstrong
was away on official business,
the boss oi' spokesman for the
party applied to Constable
Barnes for food and assistance.
The s:ory as told by these men
is as follows:
They were hired by an employment agent at Boston to
work on the Crow's Nest Railway in British Columbia. They
were shipped from Boston to
Montreal, tlience over the C. P.
R. to. Macleod, thence to the end
of the track, then along the line
of construction to tho various
camps, but no work was furnished them. On foot thoy have
traveled through the pass to
Steele seeking the employment
promised them, but met with tlie
invariable reply—no work.
Upon thoir arrival at Steele in
a famished and destitute condition, and in the absence of Gov
eminent Agent Armstrong, Constable Barnes waited upon Judge
Porta and appealed to him as a
judicial officer for advico as to
whal could be done with the unfortunates. Judge Forin, upon
interviewing the Italians, suggested thai the constable take
charge of them and see that they
were fed.
Judge Forin immediately telegraphed to Hon. A C. Blair,
Minister of Railways, a detailed
statement of ihe above facts,
and requested him to act in lhe
premises, and advising thai llie
importation of such n class of
labor should be stopped.
Lale on Tuesday evening a
deputation of citizens of fort
Sleele selected a committee to
provide sleeping accommodation
for the unfortunates. While lhe
committee was wailing on Recorder Edwards, Mr. James
Quinlivan went lo the Italians
and tendered them the use of his
barn as a lodging house, which
was accepted, and rightly, loo,
as it rained quite heavily during
the night.
The following telegram, received at Boston, would indicate
llinl alien labor is being brought
into   tlie  counlry   contrary   to
law:
"Toronto, .Mav I'd, 1898.—To

A later report says thut some
thirty laborers are camped this
side nf Cranbrook. There are
but three men in llie outfit lhat
can speak English. Thisoutfil

contract to work on lhe railway,
and have all  been refused work,
church gave in their report. Il
was found that fell had been
subscribed. It was intimated
that the Church Building Board,
Winnipeg, had decided to grant
$150 for the erecting of a church
it Port Steele, half to be given
for the purchase of material, the
other half to be given on the
completion of tho building. Tho
Society thanked the Building
Board for their decision, and instructed the Rev. J. G. Duncan
to tender the thanks of the meeting to the secretary, Mr. Colin
Campbell, Q, C, Winnipeg,
The progress of Die talent
scheme was then brought up
from which it appeared that 882
had been already secured for the
Building Fund. Mrs. Mclnnes
intimated tliat the funds of the
Society stood at 857. Thus, the
amount available for the building
of the Port Steelo Church is
8480, Already the first lumber
from Mr. Hanson's, Wasa, is laid
on the ground and there is every
reasonable prospect of a church
being buill, though much needs
to be done yet. The trustees are
expected to have a meeting
shortly. The Society felt encouraged by the progress made,
and resolved to continue their
efforts.
The Sabbath school roll has
now readied lib.

Kootenay frost for the Government candidate, The Colonel
was literally snowed under, and
at the close he left the hall withoul the applause generally tendered to a welcome and agree-
ible candidate.
The meeting was called to order by Col. Henderson, who
acted as chairman, and then Col.
Baiter addressed the audience,
He went over the same old platitudes that we have been regaled
with at Fort Steele, Wardner
aud Coal Creek. It was the same
old story of a muchly troubled
aud basely slandered Government. His speech was weak
from start to finish, and it was
plain lo all that the chilly reception the Colonel is meeting with
all over the district is slowly but
surely bringing the Colonel to
his political grave.
The same old explanation was
offered as to the railway grant.
The Colonel was opposed to it
personally, but then what could
i poor man do? There he was,
ill by himself, and it was a question of defeating the Government
or sacrificing liis constituency.
He could not see ihe Government defeated, so he voted for
the Government and betrayed
and sacrificed his constituents,
the gallant Colonel remarking,
"I was not u minister then!"
Bul you got your reward, eh.
Colonel: They made yuu ti minister.
Mr, Carrol, of St, Eugene Mission, asked the Colonol if il were
not a fact and a matter of his
lory thai John  Bright, William
Kills and Mr. Gladstone, when
in opposition to tho governmenl
und upholding the rights of their
constituencies, sooner I Iiuu vote
against   their  constituents,   re*
signed.   Mr. Carrol then asked
the Colonel, "Did you  resign':"
■'No!" said  the Colonel, and  il
was evident  to llie large audience that   the  Colonel  was in
deep water.  Ihal   he   mighl  as
well  throw up the sponge and
declare himself defeated, as his
replys to the various questions
were weal; and nol lo his credit,
Mr.   Huillie   was   introduced,
and in a very able manner gave
the Opposition views and platform,    ll was plain  to lie seen]
tliat the Kootenay frost hud disappeared nnd tliat  the audience
was wilii llie speaker, and the
J generous  applause  which   wns
; stock sad- freely  tendered spoke volumes
purs    and as to what mny be expected from
i Moyie Cily on  the duy of election.
Mr. .1.   A.   Harvey thon addressed ihe meeting in favor

his audience, composed almost
entirely of workinginen who may
not be "brilliant," but are rational ami sensible enough lo
protect themselves against such
| unscrupulous demagogues und

Herald.
Mr. Baillie was called down by
a requisition signed by sl workinginen asking him to stop over
and address them OU Opposition
topics on Sntunlay. June 15th,
This may be hard on Mr. Baillie,
but it  is political  death  to the
Colonel.
Cranbrook Herald: "One of
the most amusing features of tin*
present political campaign is to
view tin* bnquets which Editor
Baillie throws through the PltOSPECTOH to Candidate Baillie.''
The editor of the Herald is mistaken. Grace is the amusing
cuss that is throwing those
sweet-smelling boquets lo the
Opposition candidate. Mr. Bail-
lie's lime is all taken up wilh
campaign matters, attending
strictly to Col. Baker and the
Governmenl party.

THREW   DYNAMITE   BOLTS.
Cruiser Vesuvius at Work on Santiago Forts.
Oft Santiago de Cuba, Tuesday, June 14.—(By'the Associated Press Dispatch Boat
Dandy, via Kingston, June 15.—
The dynamite cruiser Vesuvius
joined the Heet yesterday and
was put to work immediately.
Ensign Palmer, of the New-
York, went on the Vesuvius,
with Lieutenant Commander
Pillsbury, to explain the location of the batteries.
A few minutes after midnight
the Vesuvius was within half a
mile of the beach west of Morro.
The Oregon's searchlight played
on the battery while the black
nose of the cruiser pointed at
the westward batteries. Lieutenant Commander Pillsbury
gave the word to tire and Lieutenant Quimby opened the air
vent. There was a slight hissing, a sort of coughing noise, but
no report, no flame, no warning
to the Spaniards who were hiding in the darkness. Thirty seconds later a dull roar broke the
silence of the night. Two hundred pounds of guncotton had
exploded on the hillside below
the battery. The ships on the
blockading lines two miles away
shook with the explosion. The
li -ing of it til-inch shell is a mere
crack compared to tlie deep and
mighty roar. Clouds of earth
thrown up from the hills seemed
to stand out against the sky.
Another package of guncotton
was dropped on the other side of
the battery and may possibly
have struck the torpedo boats
anchored below. Before the re-
eehos of the second died away
the Vesuvius sent a third charge
hissing out. To the right, on the
brow of the hill, where the battery seemed to be, into the. air
tlew tons of earth and the smoke
covered the land for half a mile,
The Vesuvius retired at a 16
knot rate. Two flashes came
from the hill and two Spanish
shells flew beyond the cruiser.
The test was regarded as high-
• ly .satisfactory, and there is intense interest in the fleet over
this first trial in warfare of a
dynamite cruiser.
New Orleans Had Practice.
The United States cruiser New-
Orleans, having been ordered by
Rear Admiral Sampson to destroy the new emplacements of
half a inilu east of El Morro, on
which a number of Spaniards had
been working, took up a position
at Ti o'clock this morning about
-MID yards from shore and 2,000
yards from the Morro battery.
She opened upon the emplacements with her rapid-fire gnus.
Red clouds of sand rose on the
hilltop where the emplacements
were building. Following the
Ifith shot the Morro batteries replied with one shell that fell
near the stern of the flagship
New York, After 20 minutes'
#un practice Admiral Sampson
signalled the New Orleans to
cease tiring. Then, as she retired, the Morro batteries sent 1(1
shells after her without damage.
Admiral Sampson hoisted the
signal "Firing well done," tho
first compliment of the kind
from the admiral.
been given, and lhat, too, near
the shores ol Germany, Ciel et
Terra tells us that the well-
known Isle of Boruholm, situated
in tlie Baltic nml belonging to
Deumai'k, acts like n huge magnet. Although the magnetic
force of the island is not so great
as to draw out the nails from approaching ships, as is told in the
old stories of magnetic mountains, nevertheless the attraction possessed by the rocks
of the island has consequences
that are often disagreeable for
ships that pass near by. Especially does tho island exert
such an influence on the magnetic noodle of the compass that
tho course of the ship may be
considerably altered by it. This
effect is noticeable within a radius of nine miles around the island. The rocky reef situated
just beyond Bornholm has similar magnetic properties,
A magnetic Island,
"It has been pretended," says
Lo, Revue Si'icnUllipte, "that
whon ships approach mountains
Unit contain masses of magnetic
iron they experience an attraction that they lind it difficult to
resist.   A proof of this has just
The Time Niagara Dried Up.
It seems almost incredible that
at one time in its history the
greatest and most wonderful
waterfall in the world actually
ran dry. Nevertheless, it is an
established fact that this occurred on March 29, 1848, and
for a few hours scarcely any
water passed over Niagara Falls.
The winter of that year had been
an exceptionally severe one, and
ice of unusual thickness had
formed on Lake Erie. The warm
spring rains loosened this congealed mass, and on the day in
question a brisk east wind drove
the ice far up into the lake.
About sunset the wind suddenly
veered round and blew a heavy
gale from the west. This naturally turned the ice in its course
and, bringing it down to the
mouth of the Niagara River,
piled it up iu a solid, impenetrable wall.
So closely was it packed and
so great was its force that in a
short time the outlet to the lake
was so completely choked up,
that little or no water could
possibly escape. In a very short
space of time the water below
this frozen barrier passed over
the fulls, and the next morning
the people living in the neighborhood were treated to a most
extraordinary spectacle. The
roaring, tumbling rapids above
the falls were almost obliterated,
and nothing but the cold, black
rocks were visible in all directions. The news quickly spread,
and crowds of spectators flocked
to view the scene, the banks ou
each side of the river being lined
with people during the whole
day. At last there was a break
in the ice. It was released from

Talk of Spain's desire for peace
is idle until Spain shall ask for
peace in tho only quarter where
it is to be had. It is nonsense to
go about Europe asking peace of
tho powers. They are not making war on her, and none of
them will burn its fingers meddling in this war unless Spain
shall charge it with a definite
proposition or basis for peace.
Arid no power will convey a
pioposition which has not some
chance of acceptance by the
United States. Unless tho national temper changes, Spain
never will make a proposition we
cun accept, She i.s not yet ready
to give up Cuba. In another
month she will have lost Porto
Rico and the Philippines. Tho
facts of the war will keep ahead
of her standard of concession,
PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS.
To    the     Electors
Kootenay:
GENTLEMEN!
At the request of a large number of electors friendly lo the
cause of good government in this
Province, I consented to be
a candidate at the Opposition
Convention held in the Opera
House at Fort Steelo on June
2nd, and was tliere selected as
the Opposition Candidate in this
district.
I therefore take this method of
briefly stating the grounds on
which I oppose the present Government, and the public policy
whicli I think ought to be pursued in this Province.
Monopoly of the Land.
(1), During a period of yoars
past the Government has been
guilty of parcelling out to monopolies huge sections of the public lands, In this district alone
five-sixths of the available agricultural land has been given
away as subsidies to two projects.
The first of these is the Canal
that was to connect the Columbia
and Kootenay Rivers at Canal
Flat, as crazy a scheme as was
ever hatched outside of a lunatic
asylum. But still the Government gave its promoters 80,000
acres of the best lands in the
valley. The second subsidy
went to the Canadian Pacific
Railway as a grant for the building of a railway from Nelson to
per month,"
Crow's Nest Coal Lands Deal.
There ure 144 square miles of
coal lands in the Crow's Nest
country. According to Prof.
Selwyn's official report to the
Dominion Government, each
square mile of this laud contains
49,052,000 tons of coal. This
wealth is incalculable. Every
mining man in East and West
Kootenay has to depend on this
coal for smelting purposes.
Col. Baker, through his influence in the Legislature, obtained
at practically no cost to himself
a charter for the British Columbia Southern Railway.
The Government of which he
is a member gave him all the
above Crow's Nest coal lands in
connection with the railway
charter.
__a  „ _.„— .-i    Col. Baker sold this charter to
Robson in West Kootenay. This j the Canadian Pacilic Raihvay for
was a most shameful pillaging of $86,000, or some such amount,
the lauds of East Kootenay. and the charge against him is
The Yukon Railway **llat he and  a number of his

last session to give §1,0(111.000 of j ^wallh.al'^r' *?? retalned
the people's money to subsidise
of    South    East
inference is this, that he Is at
tlu* heck nnd call of the monopolists who profit by cheap labor.
Hon. G. 11. Martin, a member
of the Government in defence of
the Chinese, said recently in the
Legislature:
''I have had men from Ontario
on my ranch, aud I got them
very cheap, hut the bost man I
ever had on my ranch was  a
Chinaman, who worked for $15

into the Yukon. The Yukon
gold tields are not in British Columbia at all, so that .$1,000,000
of the money paid in taxes by
the people of British Columbia
is being spent to boom a rival
mining camp, and all because
some merchants at Victoria and
that empire of coal lands for
themselves.
Thus, what the Government
gave to build a railway has been
diverted by Col. Baker and his
friends to private uses.
There is coal enough there to
supply the Continent of America
for ion years, and to create 100
multi-millionaires. Those coal
lands should

boom, which everybody knows\8\™\ *? il f'!w f hemin** ""liis diverting capital aud the life-1 viduals to make them and-their
posterity wealthy coal  barons,
practically for all time,
It is believed that there is a
flaw in the transfer of these coal
lands, and if the Government is
defeated at the elections, an
effort, which hits a good chance
of being successful, will be made
to have theso lands returned to
the people.
Government Officials.
The officials throughout the
length and breath of Iliis Province have been chosen wholly,
or almost wholly, from one class,
—the pampered favorites of the
Government. It is time that the
common peoplo of Canada, as
distinguished from dudes and
other society bric-a-brac, should
have some of the plums of our
public offices,
blood out of the East Kootenuy
and other British Columbia mining camps. But for this Klondyke boom, the Fort Steele District would be humming with
activity, and yet the Government is spending $1,600,000 of
the people's money to keep this
Klondyke boom going.
Chinese Labor.
The Government for many
years has been the persistent
opponent of every form of restriction of Chinese immigration.
Col. Baker has recorded his
vote iu favor of Chinese labor at
nearly every session of the Legislature for the last ten years. He
has resisted to ;he last every
effort that has been made to stop
Chinese Immigration.   The only _
THE   PEOPLE'S   PLATFORM.
I believe that the public policy of this Province should be
directed in manner as follows:
(1.) The adoption of a policy directed towards ultimate ownership of railways by the Government.
(LE) That public lands be reserved for actual settlement, and
that such legislation be enacted as will prevent the holding of
large tracts by speculators and company promoters.
(3.) That when a grant of laud is made in aid of railways and
other public undertakings, the Government retain an equivalent
interest in such undertakings by way of control of freight rates
or otherwise.
(4.) That tho status of existing grants of land be thoroughly investigated with a view to compelling the opening up of the
same to settlement where the conditions upon which such
■rants have boon made have not been complied with.
(5.) That the system of transfer and registration of land be
simplified and made less expensive while securing absolute validity of title.
lfi.) The discouragement by all constitutional methods of the
immigration and employment of Oriental laborers, und the amendment In accordance therewith of the Coal Mines' Regulation Act,
7.) The abolition of the present corunt practice of administrating the public road money In the interests, of the government supporters,
(8,) The honest management of provincial assets in the interest to the public.
Thore are of course many other matters deserving attention,
but the above, Gentlemen, are in brief the views which 1 hold, and
the reason I am now seeking your .suffrages i.s that 1 seek to get
into a position whore I will be enablod to advance those views in
the strongest possible manner and witli the fullest effect,
If you have confidence in my trustworthiness and ability to
stand for your rights antl privileges, anil for the general interests
of the people, then I shall be gratified to have your loyal support.
Yours respectfully,
Wm. Baillie.

Sir Joseph Chapleau Dead.
Montreal, .1 unu 18, —Sir Joseph
Adolph Chapleau, formerly lieutenant governor of Quebec and
secretary of state of the dominion, and one of the greatest
French-Canadian statesmen,, is
dead.
He was born November 9,1880.
In lull" he set out for his native
country of Terre Bonne with
only 10 shillings in his pocket to
run for a seat in the legislature,
His eloquence made a deep impression on the constituency
and In' wns elected. As un orator he Inul no equal in Canada,
He became Queen's counsel in
1858, antl ti year later achieved
celebrity as counsel for Louis
Rod's associates, charged with
the murder of Scott. He wus
provincial secretary in Debour-
chovillo's ministry in 1875-77.
At the defeat of Uie.Inly government in l-7'.i he became premier
of Quebec, In 1882 he accepted
a portfolio under Sir John A.

Boston Herald: The acquisition of territory by the nations
of the world, our nun included,
is probably to be in the future
more a question of power than of

Europe had held oil' before in

and the same considerations are
likely to continue to operate upon them.
The Departure From Tampa.
Tampa, Fla., June 18.—When
the last transport disappeared
from Port. Tampa the count
showed .thai there were ilii vessels bearing the army of invasion. These Eli transports were
accompanied to Cuba by 16 warships. Many of the transports
were literally black with soldiers, the great loads of humanity causing the vessels to draw
nil the way from 10 to El feel of
wnler.
'I'he departure of the lleet wus
;i most picturesque sight. Prom
the time thai lhe lirsl vessel
loaded with United States soldiers loft the buy until the last
ship here disappeared there wus
not tho slightest confusion or incident. Every vessel cleared
easily and perhaps with lessditli-
OUlty than would have happened
i*i an;,* olllii* Southern poi I.   due
of Ine striking features before

effect given bj the electa ic lights

ll is believed that many of lhe

road from the lake to the divide

As soon as the wagon road is
completed, so that supplies and
tools may be taken in. the work
of grading will be actively pushed all along the lino of the proposed railway. The work would
have been commenced today, but
lhe rain has delayed operations
for a day or two."

views   ill  full   to   the   electors.
The speaker, whospent four and

last year, slated that Col. Baker
had not the ghost of a show in
thai riding.   The people in one
part of  Easl.  Kootenay  blamed
Col.   Baker for attempting to
move   the   Government   offices
from where Ihey are at   presenl
locatod lo Cranbrook, in order,

thought,  to boom lhe town in
