Hospital at the Mission.
It is learned that M. J. Haney
during liis visit to St. Eugene
R, C. Mission on the St. Mury's
River, made arrangements with
Father Cocolla for the nursing
ot sick mid injured employees
on the Oow's Nest Railway by
by tho Sisters at the Mission.
;\ number of additional Sisters
have been sent for to undertake
this particular work.
No More Timber Leases.
The Provincial Government
has issued an order that hereafter no more timber lenses or
permits to cut timber will be allowed on the railway reserve,—
that is, for lli miles on each side
of the Crow's Nest Railway line
as now located. Pre-emptions und
purchases of land within the re-
servo may still be made.
Dibble Group Sale.
The tiniil payment of 18,000 on
lhe Dibble group of mines on
Lost Creek has been made, although not due till next July.
Hon. Geo. E. Poster is at the
head of the purchasing company. The property has been
worked pretty steadily for somo
months past, and is now looking
exceedingly well. It is proposed next sumnier to employ a
largo force, and the Dibble will
likely bo ono of the first ship:
pers in this ilistrict next season.
Wanted- A Postofflce.
Wardner is still wanting a Post
office. A postmaster was appointed some time ago, but no authority was givon for tho opening of
an office. P. 0. Inspector Fletcher
was written to about tlie matter
md has sent the following reply:
"Referlng lo the notification sent to
you of your appointment to ihe post-
mastership of the new (tostotlteo ivhleh
it is proposed to establish nt Wardner,
I beg to say thnt the department bus
now under consideration the establishment, of an International inuil route
between Port Steele and Tobacco.Mont,,
and it is proposed to provide for the
niail service of the now postolflce at
Wardner by this route to and from
Fort Steele us well us Tobacco. When
authority is received fur the establishment of the route, which I expect will
now be shortly, lhe postoltlce ut
Wardner will be opened ut the same
time, und the necessury supplies und
Instructions will be forwarded to you.''
That is a decidedly Fletcherian
letter: it is nothing to the purpose, because it still leaves
Wardner lacking the ordinary
cross-roads facilities of a post-
office. We were promised this
mail service to Tobacco Plains
long ago, tenders were called
for and some favorable bids received, but nothing has been
done. As a department of pal-
terers with public business, the
postoffice managers in this Province have earned a fine reputation.
Since the above was written
word has been received that the
Postoffice at Wardner will be
opened on tho 1st of December,
but that the Kalispell mail service will not begin until Jan 1st.
Important To Miners.
By the advertisement of the
Minister of mines in another
column it will be seen that the
regulation with regard to relief
against forfeiture owing to lapse
of free miner's certificate, heretofore in force, has been repealed,
and a new regulation issued.
Miners should read this advertisement carefully and govern
themselves accordingly.
Ball.
Tho ball given on Wednesday
last in the Opera House by the
ladies of the Church of England
in aid of the organ fund was well
attended, considering the inclement condition of the weather.
A most enjoyable time was
spent. The "basket sale" was
very successful, and altogether
the organ fund must have been
considerably iuiguincnted by the
proceeds.
Dividing New York.
Now York, Nov. 12.—It is said
that one. of the first bills to be
introduced in tlie legislature will
be one providing tor the creation
of a new state, by permitting a

A Yellow Legger.
There is a man who calls himself "Professor" Hardman, hull
ing from Montreal. He professes to know something about
minerals. He visited East Kootenay this year, and us a result
the following is published in the
B. C. Mining Record:
'■Professor Hardman, of Mont
real, has been ou a visit of inspection io the International and
Burns Basins, near Golden. He
expressed himself highly pleased
with what he saw of the mineral
prospects of tlie district, and informed the writer that he looks
forward to the northern portion
of Enst Kootenay proving more
valuable as an ore producing
section than the southern, as
here the deposits are of a more
favorable character than in the
south, and carry higher values."
In the above "Professor"
Hardman discovers himself to be
a ''Yellow Logger" of the most
pronounced character. None
but one of that ilk would ever
hazard so absurd a comparison.
To speak of one section of East
Kootenuy as being a better mineral section than another is on
the face ot il an extreme absurd
ity, iind lo suy thai he "looked
forward to" such a thing is but
still further lo display his ignorance. Of what value is llie com
parlson of one mining district
wilii another, or what is to be
gained if one district Is better
than another? The "Professor"
who talks that way writes himself down most effectively an
ass.

THE TROUBLE ON THE C. N. E.
A Traveler Gives His Experience
Along the Line - Treatment of the
Men Described- Put in Jail for
Debt   Feeding Bread to Horses
Deficient Medical Attendance.
G. Northup, a Toronto business man, who is looking out for
a business location in British
Columbia, came through the
Crow's Nest Pass from Macleod
last week. He had seen some of
the particulars given in THE
Prospector regarding the condition of affairs along the line
and also a denial of these particulars and lie came to this
office to give the facts as he
found them to exist on his journey through. In a general way
he spoke strongly in denunciation of tl.e manner in which tlie
men were being treated and gave
the instances which we detail
below in support of his remarks,
"There appears to be a disposition," he said, "to take advantage of the men iu every shape
aud form. At one of the camps
about 00 miles west of Macleod,
a gang of men were charged
§5.75 each for transportation
from Mueleod to the camp.
These men had walked all the
way, they told mo, but their kits
had been carried on the Company's or contractor's waggons,
I don't know which. They refused to submit to thi' charge,
and going back to Macleod all
wero placed under arrest and
confined several days in the jail
or barracks, the arrests being
made by the Mounted Police.
They employed a lawyer (from
Calgary, I think), who secured
Iheir release. They propose
bringing an action for false arrest, and I should think they
had a good case. The law must
be very different in tliat country,
or otherwise it is a very highhanded proceeding to put men iu
jail for what at the worst was a
simple breach of agreement.
They were apparently summarily arrested for alleged debt, a
thing tliat cannot be done in any
other part of Canada.
"Had these men any formal
agreements with tlio Company?
Yes: or at least some of them
had. I saw one of them. It was
shown me by a man I met between Michell Prairie and Coal
Creek. It was made ut Ottawa,
and the conditions were that the
man was to have three mouths'
work, and were to be paid 81.50
per day, with board at 84 per
week, and he was to be charged
one cent per mile for his trans
portation from Ottawa to the
work. He left Ottawa, he told
ine, on the 2Mth of August, and
had begun work nine days afterwards, on September 0th, west
of Macleod. Tho work was not
constant, hut ho had worked
whenever he had got a chance.
On the Kth of November, he finally quit work, and asking for
his time, was told that he was
still in debt to the Company. He
had been charged 822.50 for railway fare, had bought about 85
worth from the Company's
stores, and this with the charges
for doctor's fees, mail service,
etc., together with the loss of
time to which he was obliged lo
submit, had, according to the
way il. was figured out, brouglii.

no hope of improvement, and he
lind quit,
"Thu latter batches of moil
Uml wore brought to the work,"
said Ml*. Northrup, "were not
charged railwuy fares, and when
this fact became known 11 iu
creased Ihe sense of injustin
under which tlm lirsl men who
came were laboring, and brought
tilings to a climax.

and Coal Creek there are proba- j of blankets. Board was charged

they have run out of grain and
hay and are feeding the horses
on bread, a diet which to say the
least is unusual.
"At ono of the camps at Michell Prairie I found a man walking in the soft snow with the
solo of one of his shoes pretty
well off, and the side of the foot
protruding. I asked him why
ho didn't get a new pair of shoes
from the camp store. 'Shoes!'*
he reiterated with a fierce oath,
'You can't get a shoe in this
camp.'
"At another camp I found the
men totally without covering,—
no tents, cabins, or anything
else, and they were sleeping un-
Whnt Haney Says.
The Phospectou Ims no desire to do Mr. Haney or anyone
else an injury in this matter.
From certain fads we had
learned, it seemed thai Hie men
wore being treated unjustly, anil
we made these facts public in
order to prevent lhe men being
imposed upon. Mr. Haney seems
to think that everything is being
done properly on tlie Crow's
Nest Railway, and we give liis
side of the case as follows,
clipped from the Nelson Miner:
" The facts are," said Mr.
Haney, " that certain men came
from the east whose fares had
been advanced by the company
der the branches of trees, which
they threw together to make a:alul,h(*.V were Siv6n to uute*
stand they must and agreed to
repay this fare. In   fact   they
signed contracts to this effect.
A few endeavored to evade this
payment and consequently there
has been trouble.   They endeav-
covering.
"The men complain bitterly,
too, that while they are charged
a monthly fee for medical attendance, the doctor is seldom there
to attend them, and the service
a mere pretext for medical attendance.
"Under all these drawbacks
the men are getting away from
the work as quick as possible.

all through seem to be just about
as bad as they could be."
Mr. Northrup was asked if he
desired to be known as giving
this information. "Yes;" was his
response, ."I am giving these
facts for publication on my own
responsibility, and with the
object of having the situation of
the men improved by drawing
public attention to it."

EAST KOOTENAY MINES.
Tho Formation   An Opinion  as to
Their Value.
(WesternMining World.)
li is wilii pleasure that n casual observer notes tin' interest
taken in the mines in this dis
trict; for instance Hie great collection of oros lliul was exhibited
ut tin' Spokane Pi nil Fair, it
wus om' of ilu' finest assortments
taken from any new mineral dislrict 1 over saw. mul its equal
would be hard to find. Many
prospects hero show shipping
ore from Hie grass roots, The
formation of tin* country is granite, porphyry, slato, diorile,
quartette, and lime, besides several varieties ot shale und sliisis.
which vary according to location
ami elevation; mul some volcanic
agency has been brought to bear
upon the different formations, so
as to divide them up into straits
or dykes averaging from u tow
feel to several hundred feet in
width, thereby forming oither
perpendicular or dialated contacts; and by continuing investigation 1 find the quartette dykes
are the best mineralized of all
and in many cases on the sur-
face. It shows mineral all over
the surface of the dyke.
If any mining man will take
the time and trouble to travel
over the district and make a fair
investigation I do not think he
will have any doubt as to its great
merits as a mineral producing
country; and the time is now
ripe for the conservative milling
man mid capitalist lo turn his
attention lo lhis section. 1 believe them thut invest here first
will get quick mid easy returns

here has been similar in circumstances to all other new milling
districts in I lie west, lt has had

and cheap stock boom; now that
they have all passed away and
