land on the road to Moyie Lake,
a distance of about a mile. This
Hat in tho spring months is very
soggy, and tlie ungraded roadway at present used becomes
practically impassable, being at
some points covered with water
lying on mud feet deep. Although a survey has been made
the Government has not made
the road. Provincial Secretary
Colonel Baker was seen about il
whon hero wilh Land Agent
Hamilton last week. He says
the work will be done in the
spring,—after the need for if
will have vanished for another
year. This road should be ypt
hi this fall. A great deal of

Many people in Fort Steelo

years bar keeper at the Oootir
I'Alene .saloon, Spokane. Ho
liod lust week' from the effects
of a blow on the head received
at lhe bauds of Carl Johnson, a
minor. The assault tliat resulted iu the death of Mr, Ross toot
place shortly after 7 o'clock on
lhe morning of September 10,
Ross had only boon on shift a
few minutes when Johnson,
somewhat intoxicated, entered
the Coour d'Aleno saloon and
called for a drink of whiskey. A
quarrel arose between tlio two,
which ended in Johnson landing
a terrific blow with ills list ovor
Ross' eye. The latter was staggered, but managed to keep his
feet, lu a moment blood began
llowing from a deep cut over his
eye,   made by Johnson's list.
Johnson was arrested, bul Ross

TEOUBLE ON CROWS NEST.
Working-men   Deserting*   in   Large
Numbers-The Cause.
During tlio past week a considerable number of men reached
here from the line of the Crow's
Nest Railway oust of here. Most
of them are "broke." They all
com e with the same tale of ill-
treatment and failure on the part
of the Railway Company to
carry out their' agreements and
promises. Lust week wo gave
some particulars. We can now
givo something more definite. J.
Kehoe, F, Forbes and D. Simmons, are three young men from
Trenton, Out. They came here
a few days ago from working
on the C. N. R. and tell the following story. They say they
were employed in tho east to
come out and work on the railway. The arrangement was that
their fares wore to be paid and
they were to receive $11.50 a day
wages, witli board at S3.50 a
week. They oame out, and
worked altogether 52 days. The
Company's account with each of
them was the following;
For Nine Week's Work.
Tn 52 iluvs (ii)$l.50  $78 00
XfssR'y fare to Miipleocl.$2l 50'
" I'ai'u Maoleod to Pass 7 110
" board, II w'ks (jb $4.5(1 411 50
" forwarding mail mat-
tor, 50(i, a month... 1 00
" do-tor, 50c. a mouth. 1 00
" lodging in Co's cabins   1 1)0—72 00
- Balance due... $ II 00
Those men also had to supply their own blankets, and of
course had to pay for tobacco
and all other supplies they got
from tlie Company's stores, so
that after doing nine weeks'
work', besides time lost iu travelling, they found themselves out
of pocket. If- what they tell us
j true, and there is no reason to
oiibt it, they are being most
grossly ill used.
.V.'/..-.-..,!*.-" •=•*   iho  pOSHl-ll
of the Company, we are told
that tt is the intention only to
withhold the amount charged
for railway faros till the work is
finished or until lhe men have
worked six months, when it will
be paid over to them. But what
authority has the Company for
doing this? When men have
earned their wages thoy are entitled to be paid. The pay is
being withheld iu order to coerce
the mon to work for wages that
are below a living wage. The
price of board is being constantly increased. The men are now
being charged §5.00 a week. Surely this sort of thing is intolerable.
In the above bill, of charges
against lhe men, the item "forwarding mail matter" is for the
service of carrying a mail bag
along tho line. If 4,000 men are
employed, the revenue at 50
cents it inoutli from each man,
would amount to §2,000 per
month in tho aggregate. It
would bo a fat job to have that
contract, seeing that the two
men who are employed to make
fortnightly trips along the lino,
are each paid only about $00 a
month to perform tlie services,
We would like to know inlo
whose pockets tlio balance of
tlie money exacted from the men
for this service goes. If this
outrage is being perpetrated in
tlie manner that we are informed
it is being done, there novel' was
a more disgraceful thing heard
toll of in tlio records of railway
building atrocities.
Another item in the abovo bill
is that for ''lodging in Company's cabins." Those cabins
are built by the Company or the
contractors for the use of tho
mon, but a moment's reflection
will show that the men are being
made to pay dearly for
the com fori s alTordod Uicim, If
the charges were kept up I'm* a
year, you could almost build h-
aliali palaces out of tlie ace e
lions.

The wholli [it'ocoodlug is an
position upon the people of ;!;is
Province,   In   a   few   mouths
these men will be out of employment, and being left with little
or no means as a result of thei]
work, will many of them be a
charge on the B. 0. public.
B. 0. LIBEEAL CONVENTION.
Party Lines Will Not Bo Bra'.vi... .*■
Provincial Elections.
According to press reports the
convention held at flow Westminister last week to form a
Provincial Liberal Association
was a great success. Tliere were
110 delegates present, representing all parts of the Province.
Aulay Morrison, M P., was
chad-man. The association was
duly formed amid great entlin-
itsni. Wm. Temploman, Victoria, was elected President, and
William Baillie, editor of Tins
Pitosi'iJCTOK,, Fori Steele, Vice-
President, Yale, Kootenay and
Cariboo. The other vice-presidents were: E. P. Davis, Q. C,
Burward; Alexlieiidorson, Westminister; John Sluggott, Vancouver Island; George Riley,
Victoria City. J. H. Kerr, Vancouver, was elected secretary,
and Dr. McKechnie, Nanaimo,
Treasurer. An executive Committee of three was elected from
eacli of the live Dominion constituencies. Tli6.se together with
the officers of the Association,
are to form the Executive Committee for the Province.
Tiie feature of tlie Convention
that attracted most attention
was the discussion of the following resolutions which wore carried amid great cheering, with
only two dissentient voles.
'That the members of this
convention declare that they are
emphatically opposed to the
present British. Columbia Government as shown by the legislation promoted hv tlio Government, and by the action * '''--.llie
Executive, and     . •. "*■. \
oirice is detrimental lo the general welfare of tlie Province."
"That in the opinion of iii „
convention it is in the best inter;
osts of tlie Liberal party to sup
port in all the constituencies oi
the Province, such candidates as
declare themselves to be fully in
accord with the resolution jusl
passed."
This means that Liberals will
join with Conservatives lo del1.
the present Provincial Gover_
monl at the election next year,
throwing Dominion parly divisions aside.
A resolution was proposed that
Liberals should support only
Liberal Candidates, but it received practically no support.
A draft of the party platform
was presented and discussed, but
being in an unfinished condition,
was not reported. The final
completion of the platform has
been left to the Executive Committee.  	
MAIL TO KALISPELL.
His surely time something was
heard from the P. O. Department
regarding the letting of the mail
contract between Fort Steele and
Kalispell. The dale has now
elapsed ou which it was to be established.
Crow's Nest Contractors.
J. D. McArlliiir, who had tlie
most extensive contract on tho
prairie end of tho Crow's Nfest
Railway has pulled out and gone
easl witli his whole outfit. The
reason of this sudden quitting
of the road has not transpired.
Egan Brothers, who had it
considerable contract on the
eastern end, aro on thoir way
through the Pass, to resume
work on this side.

IN HOT PUBSUIT.
But the Fugitive Gets Safely Off With
the Boodle,
On Saturday last J. J. Quinlivan. blacksmith, of this city,
applied to Stipendary Magistrate
Armstrong for power to arrest
one C. Riley, a man who lias
been running a water cart here,
who owed him ljil-18, and who
was making for the boundary
lino, evidently with the object of
eluding payment of his debts.
The Magistrate said he had no
authority to issue a capias, and
that there was no official iu tlie
district who had such authority
The nearest authority was that
of Judge Form, of Rossland.
and as that city is a four days'
journey from here, it was evident that he could not be got at
in time.
Mr. Quinlivan was compelled
to resort to "bluff." He telegraphed to the Provincial Constable at Sand Point to intercept
Riley, but the fugitive had already passed that place. Tho
Elk Rivor Constable was then
sent down the trail in pursuit,
but did not come iqi with his
man, though he followed as far
as tho boundary.
Mr. Quinlivan I hen l.elo_ raphe
to the U. S. Sheriff at Kalispoll
iVlont., with whom he was acquainted, to hold Riley there,
but the Sheriff has replied thai
Riley had not put iu an appearance, evidently having' turned
olf in another direction

out of the country with Quinlivan's money; but if was
.bought that if ho could be come

leaving enough "dough" ho]duel

son of Vulcan's just demands
Riley, il is said, had plenty ol
money, having carried ij'JUO. flic
■ , icoi'ds of a mining claim, mil
, ich him. besides a team ami
waggon laden with goods.
This is au instance which
strikingly illustrates one of tho
hardships under which the people* of East Kooteday labor
through not having a County
Court Judge resident here.
Here is a case in which a man is
openly cheated out of his money
because of tlie deficiencies of
our Judicial equipment, Tbo
Government, we aro pleased to
say, is being appealed lo for a
redress of this grievance, and it
is to be hoped that thero will hi.
uo unnecessary delay in having
a County Court Judge appointed
here.        	
TO BENEFIT SETTLERS.
We direct attention to the
scheme outlined on the second
page of this issue to facilitate
the settlement of the public lands
in this district. Read it careful
ly, and make it a point to give
what assistance you can in this
very important matter.
There are 111 carloads of supplies at (lolden for the Crow's

FORT STEELE EXHIBIT.

Columbia Prize Winners.
(Special despateli to Tm: Prospector.)
Spokane. Oct. 15.—The Fort

section of  the Fruit   Fair.   A
large crowd surrounds the exhibit at all times.
The Hrilisli Columbia fruit exhibit has taken \1 first. 8 second,

Fifty thousand people visited

I'he famous North Star and St,

If the intending settlor applies
to the Government Agent here,
he is in little or no butter position. Mr. Armstrong is a most
efficient and painstaking official,

absence of a survey of the public lands, and in liis lack of
knowledge of what lands are

fragmentary, and indeterminate.
Last week wo urged tliat tho
Provincial Government should
begin a survey,--which il, should
have begun long ago,—of the
public lands suitable for settlement in these valleys, but even
if it should now be disposed to
do this, which tliere is uo reason
to believe it is, it will take a
year or moro to accomplish anything that will bo of aid to settlers, Tlie Government has been
engaged in surveying lands in
the comparatively inaccessible
regions hundreds of miles to the

proceeding lo whicli people will
not be slow in attribute a sinister

Editob Prospector: Sir,—
Your article in last week's issue
drawing attention to the injustices imposed ou Canadian workmen is timely, and from what 1
know of the facts, it leaves unsaid some things that still further aggravate the wrong. So
far f do not lind fault with your
position; but I would like to

the matter: You say it is tune
tho Government interfered. But
what right have they to interfere';' The Canadian Pacific
Railway curries on its own business in its own way, aud the
Government has no more right
to interfere than they would in
the affairs of your printing office, if tlio Company breaks its
agreements with its employees,
those employees must seek redress through tlie only recognized channel, the courts of
justice. I say this, Mr. Editor,
while fully in sympathy with
the workmen aud the object you
apparently have in view. But
the Government cannot take the
law in its own hands any more
than a private individual can.
Pebby Cheek.

I Tins Prospector is woll
aware that the Government cannot take the law into its own
hands, but it, can do something
equally effective. It can put in
11 remonstrance to tlie Railway
Company against the systematic
injustice that is being meted oul
to the employees of a railway
that is being built principally by
the people's money, aud if this
is ineffective it can undertake to
espouse llm cause of the work-
inghien wlio hnvo been wronged
by breach of contract, and thus
prevent 1111 imposition upon people whose knowledge of the law
is not such as always to indicate
to thoro the means of redress, or
who, if Ihey did know, being
without money, might naturally
be expected to submit to tlie
wrong rather than undertake to
light n, great corporation in the
emu ts. Wo think il is the duty
of Uie (Iqverninent to protect
Ihe citizens of tho country in
cases such as this. Men havo
been brought far from their
homes, with no capital save
their powor tn work, uud with
the prospect of starving before

ihe neighborhood. We got together our pack train ot cayusos

Ihal now lay ahead of us. Our
expedition was iu charge of Mr.
Pernio, an old monntainuer, who
was perhaps the first settler in
tliat part of the country, having
arrived there in isil-l. He inul
been in Australia and California,
and went into the Koolenuy
country as a gold prospector,
lie was afterwards Cold Commissioner and Road Commissioner, and now lie is a Magistrate, We could not in the whole
of British Columbia, have found
a man better able to guide us
safely over the mountain trails.
Our train consisted of sixteen
pack ponies and ton saddle animals. We encamped the first
night at the junction of Sand
Creek with the Kootenay River,
it is probable that the Crow's
Nest Railway will cross the
Kooteiiay River at Wardner
small place where some building
is going on, though little business is being done at this point.
After a journey over a rough
and dangerous trail we arrived
at Ell; River on the 7th. Tin

next day to Coal Creek and
thence to Michel and Martin
Creeks. On the 14th we went to
Old Minis Lake," whence wo
drove by team to Sulphur
Springs, Next day we drove GO
miles to MacLeod, having passed
out of the mountains to the prairie. We found the construction
work of the Crow's Nest had
reached tho boundary line between Alberta and British Co
lumbia. Upon the way wo found
from two to four inches of snow,
which, however, did uot extend
beyond Pincher Creek. Altogether we drove 1)0 miles over
the lino of construction, and*
found tlie work progressing rap
icily, with every evidence of it
being substantially dono under
the direction of Mr. Haney. No
bettor man could have been selected by the C. P. Rr for tbe
work: that ho has to do. and no
better assurance could be given
of a well constructed railway and
of the very best grades than is
afforded by his connection wilh

that of the experienced engineer
who is associated wilh him, Mr.
Haney is coiiliilent that he will

SATURDAY, O-TOBEB 10, 188'
A NATIONAL CONTRAST
Wheroin  tlm  Unitud States  Differs
from Grout Britain.
(From llio Woston Mining Worlu.l
When Hamlet beseeched his
mother, the ipieen, to look upon
Iliis picture and llinl, in order lo
stir the old lady up and fret her
excited, ho little thought thai
his expression would give emphasis to the law of comparison
for nil liine lo como. 'ihe English lauguago is incapable of a
clearer distinction between contrasts than the illustration of
two pictures representing lhe
extremes, lu lhe mining world
there is a picture gallery showing greater extremes than the
portraits in the palace of lhe
Danish queen.
A quaint old painting, distinctively English in composition,
hangs in Ihe-^allery of the mineral industry of the world. It
represents Great Britain encouraging mining within its domains. Koine features of the
picture are striking, in New
South Wales 22,207 men are engaged in mining, although the
hardships are great and the
country comparatively new. A
reward of $2,500 is given by the
Government for the discovery of
a new gold Held, or any section
of the country containing pay
deposits of copper, silver, diamonds, or opals; and a reward
of $5,000 for the first discovery
of pay ore al a depth of 2,0(10
feet, ln 1896 the Government
expended $126,000 in awards to
enterprising miners, and in addition to the precious metals extracted from the bowels of the
earth 400 men produced $125,000
worth of opals Tor Ihe market
of the world, in one corner of
the picture is British Columbia,
with a revision of laws calculated
lo discourage Americans from
rushing in lo absorb the ininoral
advantages that rightfully belong lo British subjects, John
Hull stands with one hand lo his
brow peering over an area of SOU
miles by inn, full of rich silver
ore, and witli llu* otlier hand he
signals lo the Haul; of England
to give the white metal a boost
thai will keep the world from
losing interest iu it us a money
metal, lie knows that Prance
will soon be ripe lor British Columbia silver, although il lias
managed lo get along without
absorbing much of lite United
Ktates product; and India—poor,
heathenish India—must again
have the white metal or perish.
British Columbia silver will do
for India what foreign silver was
not permitted to do—save the
land from utter commercial ruin
and its people Ironi starvation.
Moreover, the encouragement of
silver will people British America with a sturdy citizenship that
will enable tlie Government to
view witli less alarm (he aggressive spirit manifested by the republic of the United States.
Withal, the picture reflects the
policy of Brilisli statesmanship
—a policy of oolf protection lhat
has challenged lhe respect of the
world if not its admiration,
Another   ilileresling    picture
that attracts a greal deal of attention represenls llie irrepressible t'onllict hi'lwei'll the (loveru-
ment of the Unilod Klnles and
the mlnoral industry of lhe He
publio. Here lhe limitless of
Liberty is seen ill the nei of
ruining llie silver industry, hy
siirrepliliously working a ile
niollelizulien nei through the
American Congress, as a resull
of a llirlaliiin which the old lady
had with foreign capitalists,
After destroying silver as money
she still Insists In compelling ilu
owners of silver properties to

Mr. Editor: Sir,—the reputation you enjoy for a knowledge
of the punctilios of polite society, is my excuse for asking you
ll question in table etiquette, Is
it the proper thing for one, in
eating an olive, to remove the
oxocarp from lhe drupe wilh the
teeth, in* sliuulll it be done wilh
the knife and fork? At one of
the best tables in the city tlie
other day I witnessed one of our
bosl ladies lake an olive from
ber plate belwoen her linger and
thumb and put in her i ith.
The chewing I lint ensued, followod li.V lhe ejection of tin pit,
