KLONDIKE NEWS  The Story of a Persevering Prospector.  ���������Lost Everything in the River Last  Spring and Conies Back With $350,-  000 Worth of Property.���������The Sulphur  Creek Discovery and Stampede.���������  Condition of Affairs With Regard to  the Food Supply and Mail Transport.  (Fiom Our Seattle Correspondent.)  Seattle, Wash.', Jan. 29.���������The s. s.  City, of Seattle which arrived a few  days ago from Dyea brought down  some forty oelel passengers, the most  of whom came direct from Dawson  City. They all seemed to be well supplied with the yellow -metal, which is  at present so concerning the banking  fraternity of the world, lest so much  of it gets into circulation that it will  get beyond their control.  Among the passengers was Mr. Geo.  Brimstoii, in whom~we have been very  much interested. Mr. Briniston left  Seattle on the 10th-of Match last  bound for-the Klondike. Everything  went all o. k., the lakes were reached  and in* company .with three others,  they built a ��������� boat - and got ready to  float down the river as soon as the ice  went out. One morning they woke  up to find the river -clear of that obstruction, and they 'at .once launched  their hoat, loaded, in supplies and  started on their journey down stream,  admiring the beautiful scenery. All  went well until the month of the Little  Salmon river was reached. Here till  of a sudden they-came up to the ice,  gorged in the mouth of a canyon, and  before' they realized their situation  their boat was -sucked ' under  the. ice and they . only escaped by  jumping out. Three of the party succeeded ni' climbing" on to the ice, but  Mr. Briniston was less fortunate. He  floated under a point of ice and into an  open, channel where the swift current  c'������i'ri(*dl^J.iii)'..elown .the streain^for a  half-mile before he was rescued. "Had  he not been" a-:powerlul man, and a  gooel swimmer, lie, (to use his own  words,) would be "sleeping with MeGinty." They finally reaclied"Dawson  with nothing but the clothes which  they had ou, Mr. Briniston not even  having any hat. Not. having any  money or provisions, Mr. Briniston  was compelled to go to work. Wages  were $15 a day. so he did not have to  work very long before he had sufficient to get a "grub stake, when he  cpiit and went to prospecting.

A ton or more of mail for Dawson is  scattered along down the lakes and  river at, the various police stations.  Both the. United States and Canada  are censured severely for the dilatory  manner in which the: two governments  act in regaid to the carrying of the  mails from Dyea or Juneau to Dawson and other Yukon points, but the  aci ions of governments come like a  raise, of wages���������very slow.  CONTEMPORARY OPINION  KEEP cool.  The Trail Smelter has been sold for  good rhis time, and the C. P. R. gets  it. No better news could come to  Trail. It means that Trail is now .1 C.  P. R.town, iu all the name" implies.  It means that " Canada's National  Highway" with all its wealth and  power, is behind Trail, and that it will  push us along the high road, to success  at such a rate that some of ns will  have fill we cun do to hold our hats  on our heads.���������Trail Creek News.  OF A BROKEN" HEART.  Mayor Templeton's death was about  a trageely. At the last moment in the  contest for a second tei m'as chief  magistrate of the city his friends  seemed to have deserted -him. After  the tight wns over and he. went home  a beaten man; he told of, the shameful  lies that had been - circulated about  him, anel remarked : " These slanders  cut into my heart like a knife." _ He  never held up his head, again. A few  hours afterwards'he said: "I-am  sinking; I am a dying man." He gave  instructie ns to his wife regarding his  children and quietly went to sleep, a  sleep f 1 om whicli he never awakened,  although life remained in the body for  thirty-six hours. Many say that  Templeton died of a, broken heart, but  the doctor's verdict is. " burst' a blood  vessel on the broin."���������Rossland Times.  .:    POLICE COURT  Before J. D. Sibbald, S. M.  At 3 p.m. on Thursday afternoon  Mathew Pettipiece was arraigned before His Worship on a charge of noti-  snpport and neglect of his wife and  Family of six. under age, of South Edmonton. The prosecution asketl for  a remand of eight days to allow time  for the plaintiff to arrive. Bail was  fixed at $1000, two sureties in $500.  W. White. Q. C. appeared for the  prosecution.  ANOTHER GOOD CRY GONE  The Liberals of Bi itish Columbia  have got quite .1 ~olj befoie them and  that is to bcju.iie approval of the ion-  cessions made by the Liberal government at Ottawa to Mann to Mackenzie  to aid the Stickine-Teslin railway  and denunciation of the giant made  by the Turnei government last se*ssion  to aid the Cassiar Centi.vl. The popular outcry against the deal uiarle with  W.irlnuton Pike is the real basis of  Libeial hope of winning in ths next  piovinci.il election. The Cassiar concessions did exeite considerable indignation, p.uticul.iily in the mining districts of the piovinte and made .1 fine  election ciy. They the good, pure  honest Liberals "\ ould nevei have done  anything like that, oh. dear no. And  now to theii disgust conies along the  Laurier government capping the  Cassiar deal on e\ery point. Did  Wiirbui ton Pike get a lease of 7C0.000  r(ies for 35 yeais for 75 miles of railway���������Mann & Macken/.ie are to get an  iibsolute grant of thiee "and three  quaiter million acies lor 150. Pike  was limited to .1 certain defined urea.  Mann & Mackenzie have the whole  expanse of the gold-be.uing fields of  Northwest to pick from. Under the  Cassiar bargain a piospettor certainly  h'is some kind of a shew. He can  ���������piospect on tho loasc*cl lauds and can  compel the company to take him in a  woi king partner, if the-y v. ant to develope his discoveries. On the M.-um-  Mackenzle grant the mineral is theh-b  as soon as the lands are located. No  one else can touch it. Mr. Her&chell  Cohen should hang himself us high a  Hainan in disgust. He simply is not  in it. It is computed that the railway  will cost about thiee and a half  millions to build. For eveiy dollar  spent, Mann to Mackenzie will have an  aci e of pic ked land, which at a very  model ate estimate ought, if pioperly  handled in the maiker, while the piesent. excitement is on, to fetch them 111  at least ten. And besides all this, in  .lace ot the tremendous denunciations  of the monopoly clauses in the C. P. R.  ch.utei, ou which so much Gut  eloquence was expended lor so many  years, a complete monopoly of the  transportation into Yukon for live  ye.us. The ptovineial Giit papers aie  swallowing all this like oysters. But  with wi y faces, as they have to take it  with Cassiar flavoring.  THE DOMINION PARLIAMENT  C. B. Hume & Co.

"  pyBLIG Afcl'GTltfN  There will be sold by pulillc. action, pursuant  to the decree of Honorable Mr. Justice Forin  made in an action in tho Connty Court of  Kootenay holden at Revelstoke on 19tli day of  January^ 1S93, of.

They came across what is known as  Sulphur Creek and after discussing the  possibility of there being gold in the  favorable looking gravel they decided  to sink a shaft., Thev hncl gone down  ten feet without finding, any color  when at eleven feet they struck the  pay streak whicli was three feet thick,  and averaged $2.7.) to the pan, and on  bed lock every pan ran from $7. to  $12. _ And so was one of the best gold  producing streams in the Klondike  district discovered. When this discovery became known, the excitement  knew no hounds. Men actually fell  over each other in the mad rush for  gold. Mr. Brimstoii, in his jovial way.  said, " Why ! for three months I kept  my pack made up continually, with  live days rations in iI. so that I could  grab it. at any'time, (lay or night, and  run, for minutes might mean tho.is-  anels of dollars.  Mr. Briniston is a shrewd business  man and through this and his persevering qualities he has acquired some  of the most valuable properties on the  famous Skooki.m Gulch, All "Gold  Creek and Sulphur Creek, besides other  smaller interests. Skookum Gulch  and Sulphur Creeks are the two richest of the Klondike dis'riet and All  Gold is the next. His holdings on  these three alone at a low estimate  aie valued at $a-50.000.  'In order to give you some idea of  a Klondike stampede," said Air. Briniston. "there was Bryant creek. Well  that'entire creek was staked off within an hour and I hat at eleven o'clock at  night. Men running were in every direction nnd some actually fell dead on  the trail."  Mr. Brimston's party left Dawson  Dec. 14. They report provisions very  scarce at that place. Fort Yukon is  also reported, under martial law. Capt.  Ray and Lieut. Richardson, U. S. A.  are in charge. Rations ai'e dealt out  'daily. Those who have money pay  for them and those who have not are  compelled to saw- wood for their supplier.

CORRESPONDENCE  A Pointer for the Blighted One  To the Editor of lhe HERALD:  1>i~au Sin,���������Allow me a few lines in  regard to "A Blighted Being." He  seems Lo labor under a misapprehension that he. is boycotted. He cites a  number ol his gooel qualities us reasons  for fitness for public oflice. Honesty  is not an essential, rather the opposite.  Who ever heard of award politician  who paid his debts to the extent of  "100 cents on lhe dollar." His gain is  another man's loss.  If Mr. Tapping wishes public office  let him adopt the usual tactics. Announce himself as candidate for the  particular, office which he desires.  Solicit support and get a nominator.  Then allow the public to decide  whether he is possessed of "more gall  than brains.",. Should he be elected as  alderman on the prospective council I  would suggest that he use every endeavor to secure the position of chairman of the streets committee. He  could in that way control the vote of  the laboring men of Revelstoke.  Another Bliohtkd Being.  Among the passengei son the Corona,  which was wrecked at the mouth of  the Skeena, was Mr. D. Ferguson, who  lost his whole outfit iu the wreck. He  has returned to Victoria.  There are 120 tons of Silver Cup ore  waiting shipment at the Landing now.  As soon as there are 200 tons there,  the company will felch in the Kooten-  av to break the ice on the Arm aud  takeout the ore*,-  On Feb 15th a meeting will lie held  in the Hotel Vancouvei at Vancouver  -to adopt-a constitution foi the tiew-B.  C. Chamber of Mines. As will be seen  by tho following list of the chief objects, of the Chamber's woi k. its scope  will he both extensive and useful :  1. To ptomote and protect the mining interests luid-industiies of the  Piovince ot British  Columbia.  2. To consider all questions connected with the mining industry, and  to promote public discussion thei eon.  3. To ptomote legislative and other  measures alfee ting such mining indus-  tty.  ���������1. To collect and circulate statistics  and other information relating to such  mining industiv.  5. To communicate with and exchange information upon mining matters with ch.imbei.s of ;miim>s or go\-  I'liiinent departments of mines in the  Dominion of Canada and other coun-  li ies.  0. To proem e infoi m.ition as to  mines, mining companies, and .ill  matters l elating thereto, and circulate  the same.  7. To establish, form and maintain  a library, and museum of models,  specimens, designs, drawings, anc*  other articles of interest in connection  with the mining industiv, for the use  of members.  8. To act as arbitrators in the settlement of any disputes ai ising of mining  if so lequested.  The c hamber ia to consist of representative, associate, honoi.uy.foreign  ar.d visiting members. The representative* member*, will be the noui.niees  of mining syndicates an.l companies,  while any one directly interested in  mining can become an associate members on nomination and election and  the payment of a subscription. The  incorporation of the chambe*r is to be  procured. As n body through which  the opinions and l eeitiirements of mining men can be foi iinilnt(_*d and turned to account either by mging legislation or other ways, this chamber  seems to be woi thy of the support, of  e\ery mining man iu the province.  It recurs to the Herm-D however that  in order to make itself really effective  committees of the chamber- should be  appointed for enih mining district,  which would be able to keep in touch'  and cor-i-espodence with a central committee, located wherever seemed best'  I to the whole chamber.-  noith end of Upper Arrow Lake.

"ROM skagway  A letter has been received from Inspector Wood, dated Skagway, Jan.  11. He says that during tiie previous  week, between 215 and '.10 'men bad  arrived at Skagway from Dawson,  among them Dr. Wills, who left Dawson, Dec. 10. and passed Selkirk on the  20th. Up to December 20th. 321 persons had passed Selkirk on the* ice on  their wav out to the const;, and about  50 others before the river froze, or in  all 371 persons have come out from  Dawson bv way of the passes since the  Northern Yukon was bound up in ice.  Dr. Wills pissed Judge McGHire's  camp on tlic28bli. and that of Major  Walsh on Llie 30th. J. D.. McGregoi,  one of Mnjnr Walsh's offleei'3, who left,  Lake Bennett with an outfit of horses  nnd docs, was at the Canyon between.  Lnkes Marsh and Laburgc on Jan. (i.  Tliirtv mile river was slill open. McGregor wrote Inspector Wood on Jnn.  7l h that if horses could not be got below  Lake Lubai ge, he would go through  himself with dog teams, lh was sending to Major Walsh all the dogs lie  could spare, together with b.icon and  flour from 20 tons of stores McGregor  lias with him. If he cannot get below  Lake Labarge he proposes to build a  log house and store his provisions  tliere. going on himself by dog team.  Tagish post was getting short of supplies, and Inspector Wood proposed to  replenish Iiy employing the police at  Tagiah to drag supplies on sleds. He  also reports that U.S. customs' officials  at Skngway are still making importers  of Canadian goods pny a duty, or pav  an American customs officer $S or ,*30  a day to escort them to the boundary.  The aerial cable for the Chilcoot Pass  was to be ready on Feb. 5. It has a  capacity of siO tons a dav. The charge  is to be 15 cents a pound.  The Humbolt Mining efc Exploration  Co., who were going to drive 500 head  of- cattle! and horses across the  country over tho Dalton trail to Sol-  kirk have utterly tailed to carry out  their plans.  The "Boston Outfit," as it is called.  iB still at Pyramid Harbor, nnd Col.  Smith who is in charge, is trying to  get permission to come to Skagway  and go over the White Pass. The  Canadian Government's party are  calling for more dogs, some of those  taken up having died after tliey got  over' tho summit. As thev advance  northward it is presumed the climate  is too much for some of them. There*  is no use in sending any dogs to that  region except such as are enured Lo  the rigorous winter climate.  At Skagwav good dogs are brinocing  from $50 to " l"00 each. Hay is selling  at 850 a ton, and very little of it can  be got at that price.  Sergt. Joyce, of the Canadian police  and a party who have 3~ dogs with  them, have got over the summit safelv  and were by the middle of January  well on their way down the lakes.  Inspector Wood reports Lhat boLh  Lhe Chilkoot, and AV hito Passes are in  bad shape, the snow being very deep  and drifting.continually. The trails  of both passes_.to. the "summits^ were  gooelj^"liut��������� tlie summits l.lfeinselves-  were at times impissable. There was  considerable difficulty in getting even  a ���������.mall quantity ot stores across the  White Puss. It is believed, however,  that in February, when the sun will  have some effect on the surface, that  the snow will pack, and make good  travelling over the summit.

Considerable excitement was caused  in the city on Sunday afternoon when  it- became known that all the noncommissioned ofUcers and men of the  "D*' and "E" divisions of the North  West Mounted Police at Macleod and  Calgary respectively had been ordered  to hold themselves in readiness to  proceed at a moment's notice to the  Yukon for temporary' elut.v. The  nrders which wera received hy wire  by the officers in command of the two  divisions are said to be due to the  -existence" of_seriousitrouble_between-  the Canadian and Uuiceel States au-  , thorities in Alaska relative to the  attempt by the Americans to get provisions into the Yukon free of duty  ostensibly for the relief ot distress, but  in reality" for sale to the Highest bidder.  No exceptions have been made as to  the men who aie to prepare to go. The  orders include every non commissioned  oflicer and man. either at the posts or  on detach in ent.  The an ival Saturday from Macleod  of Major Steele, the superintendent  commanding "D" division, caused still  more excitement when it was learneel  that that oflicer had received telegraphic notice of only u few hours, to  proceeel at once to the Coast for service in the north. Major Steele le>ft on  the Pacific express accompanied only  hy his servant, and gave no infoima-  tioh as to the cause of his sudden de-  partuic. Supt. Deane, of Lethbiidge,  drove over to Macleoel on Saturday to  take over charge of thedivision in the  absence of Major Steele. It is believed  that something serious has taken place  or is about to take place to necessitate  Major Steele's presence. One thing is  ceriai", the Major will stand, no nonsense when he gets on the scene, as  tho=e who "run up'' against him during the rebellion know only too well.  Further, developments are awaited  with interest.

TRAIN SERVICE  the  DIFFERENT STANDPOINTS  What Two' Toronto Papers think of the  Yukon Railway., Deal  The Globe of Friday says:',-If the  journey lo the Yukon, which i-jnow a  matter of months, can be reduced to  - seven elays by the new project, there  will be nb disputing that the government has "chosen the most ay a liable  route offered. As to the bargain we  believe thoughtful public opinion will  consider it is fair.  .The Telegram of the same elate  characterizes the bargain as an outrageous deal, adding: ��������� "It ought to  have been possible for the government  to arrange for the building of I2*> miles  of railway from Telegraph Creek to  Lake Teslin without cnfrnncliisiiig the  interest which Mackenzie to Mann  represent with a land grant of 2*>,<J0O  acres per mile.  Contemplated   Change   to    Meet  Demands of Yukon Travel  The Cauadian Pacific Railway are  figuring upon a new fast time table  for their trans-continental train service, but everything is in a preliminary state at present. It is understood  that the idea is to have the new service i'i operation when the boats  commence running from Vancouver to  Skagway, Dyea and Wr.itigell early  next month. " Therunniner time on the  branch lines will also be changed. One  idea is for the trains from the west to  arrive a ft*w hours earlier than at  present, Mild from the east a few  hour- later.

It was bitterly cold. Day afler day  for tho last two week the thermometer  had never risen about twenty below  and had fi-e(|iii'iitly fallen below forty.  Day after day tho sun rose in the clear  blue sky and sot behind tho white  mountains on tlio horizon. Night after  night ihe stars blazed like burning  jewels in the dark purple depths of  heaven. Day by clay men looked tithe west to see the dark cloud of the  cliinucik rise to its appointed height  above the Rockies, herald of the warm  wind from the Pacific, which alone  could break the spell of the cold, but il  came not. Sue-h a long continued cold  snap was something unheard of in the  foothills of Alberta.  It was el road fully cold work goiug  down that morning to start the fires  in the little house on the outskirts of  tl.e town of Medicine Bow, Th*  woman felt it seize her very Iienit.  She had made up good fires in the two  stoves before going to bed, but they  had died down long ago. She had gor.e  to bed so early. There was not iniii-h  use in sitting up alone thinking, thinking and it was warmer in bed with tlie  liitle girl. Last Christmas it had been  cheerful and comfortable when ho was  still getting employment and good  wages. But the hard times had come  and lo:s of work and he had gone-olf.  to Kootenay in search of something to  do and it was very lonesome without  him. The little money he had been  able to leave with her was not enough  t o let her pay for a servant so she lived  Tatters went down stairs.   The blinds  were all down in   the  sitting  room,  where the big self-feeder was glowing  brightly, anel it was beginning to get  comfortably   warm.     She  pulled    at  them till they flew  up letting   in   the  bright wintry light.   Tatters was quite  pleased with herself.   She was getting  ejuite a big girl now and  able   lo  help  mamma.     She   watched    some   hoys i  coasting on a little slope  in. the   road  outside. She knew they were bad boys  because mamma had told  hor so,  but  they seemed to be having a good  time  .-mil she watched the proceedings for a  long time with great interest,   Then  she felt hungry anel listened to hear if  her mother was moving up above, but  theie   was   no   sound.    Back   of  the  self-feeder on a  chair a   pan   of   milk  and a loaf had been  set  to  thaw  out.  Tatters got a soup plate  and  a  spoon  from the sideboard  and   managed   lo  get some of  the milk   into   the   plate  and to brea~k off some bread from the  loaf.    She  made  herself   some   bread  and milk and began to eat.    Then  she;  remembered     hev      mother      again.  Mamma ought   to have some breakfast.   She  went  to   the   foot  of  the  stairs   "Mamma,   breakfast is   ready,  breakfast is now  ready in  the  dining  car."   That was what her dad used  to  shout np to lier in the morning, when  he was at home.     But  there'was no  answer and Tatters went back to her  bread and milk, first taking np out of  a cradle fmir dolls, one big one, nearly  as  big ns Tatters   herself   and   three  smaller ones.'   The four were almost  as much "as she could manage at once,  but she got them over to the stove and  Agent for the BlickeMsderfer  Typewriter  r. B.

She got the fires started  at last. Luckily she-had bought in  plenty of conl the evening before. She  went up stairs again to get warm in  the bed until the fires had taken the  chill olf the house. . Then she would go  down again and make breakfast und  she and little Daisy would go up town  and see if there was a' letter. This was  usually tin* elay his lultcrs came. Perhaps lie would-write and say'-that he  had found a. silver mine and that he  was coining home and they would all  live happy together as in the old days.  Sho was only a foolish little woman.  Tf only that dreadful pain in her side  would not keep coming, she would not  mind so much, though it was so lonesome without him and she was so nervous. s|1L. scarcely could sleep at night  at all. only dozing and waking up again  with a start, to lio sleepless and scared  for another long spell.  She mounted the stairs and went into  the room. The little girl, a pretty  child between four and five with dark  curly hair and big giey eyes, was sitting up in the bed pretending lo read  a letter for the hiuiilr'eth time which  her father had sent her. -"Deiir little  Daisy." she repeated in her high childish voice, "I hope you are quite well.  Yon aro a dear Little girl. All tlii'-st-  kisses are for you.*' It was not what  the lett"r said at all, but. that did not  diminish t.he satisfaction with which  the liLtle girl read it aloud to hers.elf  with variations a dozen times a day.  The woman chid her sharply, when she  saw whnt.she was doing. "Yon mvughty  ch.-iir and eat her breakfast. Then Hie  dolls had to be. dressed, a long job,  and they were'very troublesome and  mamma was not there to give her a  hand as usual. Bye anil bye some one  pulled open the piiit-h door and knocked at the door of the house, which  opened directly on to the sitting room.  "Come in," said Tatters. The door  was tried Inn. it was locked. "Is that  yon, you dear little thing," said a girl's  voice, "Where is your " mother?'  "Mamma is not very much better. Miss  Tempest,"-said Tatters, "She is asleep."  "Can you unlock the door,, Tatters?"  Tatters tried to turn the key, but the  lock was' too stiff for her little soft  fingers. "I can't do it," she said, '"It's  ii bad lock. I'm only a small little  child, yon must remember." Tho  young girl'outside laughed. "Tell  your mother-1 will come again this  afternoon. It is too cold to stand out  here. Good bye,. Tatters." " '-Good  bye, Miss Tempest, when I get a big  girl 1 will unlock, the- door for you."  The young girl- lteft the porch and  faced the cold-outside ngaui. It was  so bright and sunny, one could .scarcely believe if was so cold. All the air  was full of littlet.shiiiiiiiig films like  thin particles of,, ice. dancing" and  glittering in' the sein." As 'she passed  thiough the little gulden gate, a puff  of wind from'the north drove the light  powdery snow before it over the white  and frozen road.  Tatters watched her going, thiough  the double windows of the sitting  room. It was very cpuet in the house,  and she began , to feel .strange and  lunesoiiui.
