The  Kaslo and  narrow guage railway is onr means of  travel anel feillows  most   of   the   way  lhe bed of Kaslo-creek.     Mining and  lumbering camps are passed and sumll  towns that have sprung  into  aclivity  in a day  and  perhaps will  vanish  as  rapidly as they, have appeared.   This  railway has tlie most dangerous appearing roadbed vve havo  ever   seen.  In many places it clings lo   a  rocky  cliff vvith barely track room while  far  below a thousand feet, one sees  tree-  tops and finds himself on an overhanging cliff   which threatens  to  fall  the:  moment the train is  on  it.     Instinctively I clntche'd ��������� the  e-ar  railing   and  thought of my.life 'insurance   policy  securely resting 'at home.     Winding  about with Lhe valley vve continue lo'  climb     higher,   and   after    rounding  Payne mountain we arrive in Sandon  the most unique-town  in  the   Kootenay in many respects.    .Siiniion is in a  valley,   between . I wo towering hills,  not more than a stone's  throw  apart.  On one side above the tovvn   is the   IC.  & S.'i.iilway.'hy which -vve have come,  which here linds its terminus,   excepting a spur which  rims about a  mile  further- up  the   valley   lo  Cody.    On  the oppii.-.ite' side of llie town is the  friend of this province, t.he reliable  C.  P. R,.'  whose' branch  line  ends  here,  having come in from New Denver and  I he Arrow Lake.---.     Too much  cannot  be said   in   praise   oFlhis  delightful  transcontinental line, lhe C.P.R.     Its  facilities for travel nre t.he surprise of  the tourist anel have been   most  influential in making British Columbia the  coming province;.' For elegance, safety  and rapid transit, .for its   hit ere. I  in  anel care for its passengers' it -is   ideal,  'luid'ono'sooivcouius "to ,",iook-'upon   its.  bands of stejl as  some  living   thing  that brings   ns   news   of   friends  and  home.* But to return lo   the   unique  town of Sanlon.     It. has  one  end  nt  the head of the valley, lhe olher about  a mile below.    It has  but one street,  roughly speaking, and  nearly all  the'  dwellings  aiv   built   to   face   it,   anel  Carpenter    creek, ' a  sparkling   little  stream, runs through the  town.     Far  up the hill. at. the bead of  the  valley,  is the Slocan Stiir silver mine,  whose  ore is hi ought by lr.-_nir.-irs  to  a  concentrator iiboul    halfway   down   the  hill and from tliere packed  by horses  to the railway below.    On  the left is  another mine, the Rico,  on  the right  the Ruth, mid dozens of smaller mines  abound in the  hills   on   every  hand.  Higher-Still one sees a mighty glacier,  "nt whose foot lies a grassy   glade   far"  ibovo the   timber   limits.   Sandon   is  essentially a silver-lead  mining tovvn  and trails" to claims run in every, possible direction.    Hotel accommodation  is most excellent, tlie town  is orderly  and quiet; no  Chinamen   are  allowed  within its borders, and   most  efficient  water,  electric light,  Hre   and  police  systems    are    here.   The   Methodist  denomination  alinie  has    a    church  building   which   is   us   unique   in  its  situation as tlie town itself.     Built on  the side of the mountain and supported  by cribbing below, it (lnds the ground  on one siele 111 feet above the ground  on the olher and is reached from  the  city by 1!.' step-:,  nearly all   built  by  the enterprising nnd zealous pastor.  Rev. A.M. Saiiforil, B.A.   It is a ne.it,  commodious    and  pleasant   place of  worship and rellects great credit on  the    denomination   whose   members  are small hut who are all aennsecrated  Rem-roiis people.     With Mr. and Mrs.  Sandfonl we spent a me ist enjoyable  time    and  tlicit-  genial   manner and  arduous zeal for their work   has   endeared them in onr memory as well as  to the hearts of the people of Sandon.  The Sandon Mining Kcview, published  by Mr. Clitr, whom we hail  the  pleasure of meeting, is a credit to the town  and     doubtless     will     do    much    to  add   to   its   business   enterprise   and  commercial importance,   Mr. Clifl is a  ready, intelligent and   pleasing   platform speaker and occupies a fiist rate  position  in   tho  advocacy   of  proper  political intei ests of, which his sound  judgment and careful thought render  him an able supporter.    Such   is  Sandon and its interests a city of eminence,  of hope of great possibility, of order  and of mines.  Rev. J. A. Sipprell.  Sainton, August 15,1800.  PROPOSED   LARDEAU   BRANCH  A General   Idea   of What  the   C.P.R.  are Doing and Will Do  The proposed Lardeau railway vvill  in all probability lead from Arrowhead  along the northern shore of the Arm  to Thomson's Landing, thenco to  Trout Lake City with a spur to Ferguson and along the western shore of  Trout Lake to a townsilu known as  Dawson, situated on Liirdeau creek, at  ��������� a point where Healy anil Tenderfoot  creeks empty into it, owned by a Spokane syndicate', thence through the  valley of the Lardo creek to the head  of Kootenay lake. From (his point  and Kaslo the C.P.R. vvill run barges  as is now done on the Arrow lakes  between Arrowhead, Nakusp and  Robson to connect the terminus of the  Crow's Nest with their Lanleau  branch anil the main line here, and  also their Slocan branch, which, by  the time the Crow's Nest reni-hes  Kootenny lake from the east, will be  built to Kaslo from Whitewater, thus  giving the C.P.R. practically a monopoly of the trade of both the Koole-  nays. The C.P.R. are also reaching  out ofter the Boundary business, but  are very apt to again run up against  Mersrs. Heinze and Corbin, who vve  believe are by no no means disinterested in that promising mining and  agricultural country.  WHY NOT INREVELSTOKE ?  The   Government   Sets The   Standard  Wage at $3.00 in the South.  The Slocan Sun says: "It is a  gratifying fact lo know that laborers  wages in Koolenay have at last been  raised from $'2.50 to S3.00 per tiny.  Heretofore it has been the rule that  the wages paid by the government for  such work vvas Llie standard, and for a  time wages on roads, trails, etc , was  $2.50 per day. We are informed that  the workmen recently employed on the  Duncan river trails were al. first offered $2.50 per day but refused to go unless Ihey were paid $3.00 which Lhey  reaelily secured. Recently in Sandon.  a parly advertised for laborr-rs, eiiTer-  ing .$2.50 per day but none responded.  When an olTer of '���������"'..OO was made the  help required was obtained. Novv LhaL  lhe olel rate is restored, it is sincerely  hoped they will never go below that  figure.''  The n~-~r.-vr.i_ hopes, this may be a  pointer 10 the laborers of Norlh" Koo-  tenay ; the rate being only $2.50 here.  $3.00 a day is I it tie enough and it  shoulel be ile'inaiieled. lo correspond  with lhe price of living. -   -  DONALD'S PRIVILEGE  of  What  the    Golden     Miner  ' Says  Donald's Opportunity  Donald should capture the Big Bend  trade! If the storekeepers in Donalel  have any enterprise they will not  capture this trade but vvill retain it  and extend it. Donald is the proper  centre for outfitting for thai country,  as it now possesses tlie. necessary  means of communication in a good  substantial trail, which vvill shortly  lie replaced by .1 waggon rond, and is  35 miles nearer thnn Revelsloke.  Because Revelstoke has succeeded in  obtaining some of the workshonl that  were located in Donald and tliereby  aii increased trade, it does not necessarily follow that it is going lo secure  some of Donald's trade. . The C.P.R.  did Donalel an injury in removing tlie  workshops: but Donald's existence  does not depend.upon" (he" C.P.R., but  upon'the exert ions,of liqi..citizcris. ' II.  has a fine.mining ancHuinbering country all around it: ' It is the, i-oinmonee-  ment'of ths greal. roael to' the norlh,  where all outfitting should lake place.  Ct has novv the Big Bend trade. It can  secure the trade to the mines up the  Beaver valley, and vve have no doubt  that Donald will soon become a great  prosperous centre. The C. P. R.,  although it brought trade to somo  stores, was an incubus upon the enterprise of the citizens, Now this has  been removed and vve have faith in  that enterprise that will establish  Donald as nne eif the most flourishing  towns in East Kootenay if the citizens  will only believe in themselves, put  trust in their own energies, push their  trade, let theoutsiele world know what  stuff her.citizens are made, of. Donald  will soon go ahead.  Galicians Driving  White   People  Away  Five thousand immigrants from  Michigan, Kansas, Nebraska, North  Dakota. Iowa and "Wisconsin have  been induced to settle in the Dauphin  and Edmonton district. Few of iheni  came empty handed. If Mr. Sifton  woulel pay more attention in getting  Lhis class of immigration nnel less to  Galician elenieiit. the people of Manitoba and the Territories would be  devoutly thankful. While people  from the Territories are. constantly  passing through Revelstoke. bound for  other lands, having become entirely  disgusted with the Galicians and some  of them have absolutely given away  their farms Lo get out "of their dirty  seUliiiii-iits. It, i3 a disgrace to lhe  country to pawn olf such a puck of  cuttle on any com.try. - Mr. Sifton  should be compelled to'"spend a, week  amongst these people  The Spokane Fruit Fair  To tho Editor of the Hkkald:  Remarkable Progress in North' Kootenay  When ono stops long enough to  glance back over the record of the  past seven months, since the lirst of  this year, in mining circles there ".jean  only be a feeling eif vast satisfaction  experienced at'the truly remarkable  progress made in the opening up anel  development of the mineral resource's  of this section. So steady has been  our march of progress that many of  our gootl people overlooked the wonderful strides taken in their anxiety  for the wild, feverish activity of ii  great broui. If such vvill but take the  Lime to look back carefully over the  growth of oiii" mining ineliu-try since  January 1. 1803, vve feel assured that  Ihey vvill find nothing but encouraging showing and will return to their  daily round of business more firmly  convinced than ever thai this district  is tlie best in British Columbia, at the  present date to which tliey could pin  their faith.  MR. SEMLIfTS CABINET  Three  of  the   New   Ministers   Named  and Take the Oath of Office.  The  Victoria  Colonist   of   Tuesday  says: Premier Semlin has  decided  to  I'l.'iain to himself the administration of  the   public   works  department.     Mr.  Joseph Martin  has  reconsidered   the  matter, waived his personal  ambition  for    the    time,    and    accepted     the  attorney-generalship.    Mr. Cotton has  been selected as finance minister and  has also accepted.   These three min-..  islers were  duly  sworn   in   yesterday  iifternoon. anil the members to com^  plete ihe cabinet, vvill  be chosen 'and  installed before the close oT the week.  The peculiar features of Mr.  Semlin's  cabinet  making   are   many, not  the  least, conspicuous of them  being lhat  while   two   of   the   most    important'  portfolios are given the cily of   Van-^  couver,    Lhe    whole    of     Vancouver-  Island has been absolutely disregarded."  The ceremony of swearing in occurred   yesterday   afternoon,    the    nevv  ministry    at    once   assuming   oflice.-  The probability's that the other selections vvill be made today or tomorrow."  Mr.-R. F. Green of Kaslo, is  frequent-    .  ly mentioned on the streets as a strong  candidate for minister of railways anil  of mines: tbe provincial secretaryship~  and control  of  the education   department being  retained-iu  conjunction,"  anil a place, being found  for someone  from Nanaimo to ad in in ist er.  As an alternative. Mr. Forster, of  Delta, is spoken of. although it is"  more probable that he will be slatctl  for the speakership to the disappointment of Mr. J. M, Kellie. Mr. C. B.  Sword may be askeel to become presi-~  dent of the council without portfolio.  The chief interest in yesterday's development; centres'upon  Mr. Martin's  withdrawal of his  refusal   to  support  '  j Mr.   Semlin   in   his   leadership.   The;.,  consensus   of   opinion   is that  ho ha*. "  I changed his mind not one iota, becoming attorney general  with  a  fixed deter 111 in a tion to squeeze eiut the premier  before many months have passed. - In -  explanation of- hi.8_xbjLilige;of/,base, he  himself says: -     ���������   -.  -      \  "After I had refused Mr. Semlin's offer of the attorney generalship I was ~  waited on by 11 nuinber  of  opposition '  members of the house at Vancouver, '  and they urgeel :._e to find some way if  possible to meet Mr. Semlin's views, so  that the opportunity of the hour might  not be lost.    On  arriving hero I found^  the situation   very critical: and   while -  you can quite understand that it is impossible for me to lay bare my position  as f understand  it. f  came to the conclusion that the only course to pursue '  wus to accept  Mr. Semlin's offer. __In  doing this I   have the entiie  approval  of Messrs. Forster, Deans  anel   Ralph  Smith,   opposition   members-elect,' at-  present in  the city anil the position |I,  have taken vvill be acquiesce! in bv the-  othei_niembers-of.tlieopposition.''- - --  Kevelstoke Station, Revelstoke and  Troul Lake City,  B.C.

The career of a modern prodigal was  traced from childhood to manhood,  through a life of dissipation, which  culminated in an attack: on the life of  another and subseeiuent imprisonment,  to his reformation aud reception into  the Salvation Army. There was a  good deal of pathos in the play, bnt  this was relieved by a vein ol genuiii-  hiimor. The drama, was rendered all  through in suc-ii a way as to reflect the  greatest cretlit, on the members of the  cast, vv ho displayed but little of the  amateurishness' which might have  been expected.  Last night a concert was given at  Tapping'., hall by thu members of the  band. Adjutant, Hay presided and a  long and varied program was rendered,  consisting of vo.al aiul instrumental  selections, t-lub swinging and speeches  by the chairman. Bandmaster Forrey  aiid I__nd**ine:i Foulke and Mc-Phee.  Si art-el y a hitch occurred in the whole  proceedings, which closed, after an appeal by the adjutant for converts, at  10 o'e-lock.

Thoy floated white and shimmering  on lho smooth surfaco of lho lake,  whoso waters wero nnripplcd by a siu-  glo breeze.  Even tho (solitary dragon fly, which  had flown across a littlo whilo ago, had  disappeared, and lho frog would not begin its croaking till oven tide. Thus nothing but rest, still and dreamy, lay on  tho surface of tho'trauquil water.  Many a secret lay hidden in I lib deepest depths of tlio bountiful lako and all  sorts of fanciful stories wero recounted  of its fathomless mysteries.  Thore grew tho beautiful Water Lily,  with,her delicate linoanients, ami her  fragile, spreading roots sepmed to bo always searching in vain ior a firmer  hold, and whose winsonio society vvas  'eagerly sought for by nil her neighbors,  Tho tall flags hovered arouud her and  were continually whispering and making salutations to hor.  Otton hnd sbo petulantly closed her  beautiful loaves, vyhcroupon they vvouid  promiso to leavo her in tranquillity, hut  whon sho again unfolded her petals or  mado even tho smallest movement it  was a pretext for renewed whispers.  All theso foolish adorers hnd novct  yet asked of tho-Water Lily why she  |)iis~cd all hor timo gazing upward toward tho sky, although tbey might well  hnvo observed that lho Lady Moon  -.bono there in all her splendor. When  the foolish ones slept, tho Moon's rays  jrew brighter and brighter, glinted full  across'the lako and embraced lhe liuvver,  which was transformed by lovo into a  Will-o'-tho-wisp, ,.which danced nnd  flirted constantly vvith its beloved.  Tho Tulip was tlio llrst to bo aroused  by this Will-o'-the-wisp, for as he had  lived nt court be was used to watching  and slumbered lightly. HoQ'drew himself up with grout austerity, tor ho saw  lhat the Water Lily was a persd] of  doubtful reputation, who allowed herself to bo embraced in a most unbecoming manner by tbo Moon, danced about  liko a siren, threw asielo nil "modesty  nud provoked nud (eased her neighbors,'  vvho nevertheless ruvered her and looked upou her as qui to a saint.  So tho Tulip lost ub time in relating  his discovery to his nearest neighbors  in the flower world.  Tho Forgotuionot opened its blue  eyes so wide, so wido in -their innocence, that thoy actually remained larger than when they first saw tho light.  Tho Lily of tho Valley, who tenderly  loved tho Water Lily, wept bitter tears,  whereupon tbo Tulip grow bright red  with anger and continued to ropeat his  story to tbo surrounding plants, vvho  drow together in groups uud chattered  aud recounted it to the South Wind,  who was  jnst  then passing over, them  Tho Wind ropeattd it to tho Flags, te  tho Water, lo tbo Clouds, who frowned  in nngor aud immediately covered tho  Moon with a veil.  Tho tail bluo Gentian, perched liko a  cavalier on tbo slope of tho mounti.it),  had hoard tell of tho beautiful Water  Lily. 'lieimagined that.thoro lay at the  bottom of his heart a spirit of iiro equal  to tbat of tho Will-o'-the-wisp.  He had ior some time been enamored  of lho Edelweiss and would gladly havo  feud led her volvoty leaves. Ho was nil  tho moro iu lovo becauso tho two castles,   tiuder  tliu  walls  of  .vhom he regarded as a more poot and  would not oven deign to glanco at, tho  worililo.s.' Reed, but stopped up his ears  with a weary, scornful air when thu  Reed thought good to rnsllo.  Prince Narcissus did not care to harm  tbo I.iiluirimui. Ho folt pity for it,  though hu could havo uuniiiiliitctl it  vvi tli ouo waft of his pungent perfume.  Tho Poppy and the Dandelion weie,  for bim, personages of too low born ex-  traitiein, and for a trillo bo would hnvo  nilopted a rude manner toward lliein.  Hut with Cavalier Cent inn it was  qui io a ilifi'erunt utl'air. Jlu liud comii  down from his heights and defied all  th(..*,e who wero enamored of the Water  Lily. Narcissus had accent ed his challenge and had overwhelmed him with  his pungent, oilur.  As his reputation for valor was now  firmly established ho would havo liked  fn his vanity thousands of voices tn be  raii-oii in his praiso and grow angry  when tho frogs croaked a roquiom in  compliment to thu fallen cavalier.  However, such is lhu way of tho world.  As lung us ono is alive it refuses lo pay  ono homage. Ono must tlio beforo being  appreciated and honored.  What would Narcissus havo said had  ho known that ihu Edelweiss took ilm  veil on account of her (loop sorrow on  tho death of tbo cavalier Uoiitiau:  Toward evening, whon ho had rested  from thu 1'aligiiQ of the day, ho cried in  a voico so loud as to bo heard all around:  "Como to mo, thou beauteous hermit, so white and puro. Thou art meet  and fit io lio my own princess."  Hardly had ho pronounced theso  words when lio was attacked by pricking pains, which seemed to bo burning  him on all side:-, but he determined lo  grasp and conquer his enemy.  Ho .succeeded in catching hold of thb"  Will-o'-tho wisp aud grasped it so firmly thai, it was soon inert and grew colder and colder and heavier and heavier,  Evonlually tho burden became so great  thac ho let it full at his feet, aud thero  lay ii mcii-tians jewel, whito as the  Water Lily, but bearing iu its depths u  marvelous blending of all tho colors in  heaven and on tho cnrlb, with n fire us  vivid as that of lho Will-o'-tho-wisp.  Suddenly tho Reeds- wero pushed  aside, and a long bearded gnomo issued  from tho lal~o and gazed wilh gogglo  eyes at tbo novyhorn Opal.  Lost in admiration, bo hastened to  pick it np. Its etl'iilgenco was so brilliant that ho thrust it into a lantern  which ho woro slung round his neck  aud,set out to rejoin his follow gnomes.  Ou reaching them ho cried out:  "Come and {-"eo what a magnificent  gom lI havo found."  His companions laughed at him, saying:  "Why, it is bnt ri Will-o'-tho-wisp."  "  "I tell you it is an Opal.  I picked it  np, and its firo scorched my hand."  "Yet 'tis but a Will-o'-tho-wispl"  Tho  poor   gnomo  was  furious with  anger aud exclaimed:  "I know that it is, an' Opal, and yo  uro jealous because lam wealthier thai]  ye nil!'-' _  .  Ho preserved his treasure for somo  days, hut ho perceiveel that it dwindled  slowly away us its rays grow fainter and  fainter���������so faint, indeed, that it scarcely seemed to shine.  "Take ifc back .to tho lake," cried his  companion. "Perhaps it may there recover its ofi'ulgeuco and beauty."  So tho gnouio wont sorrowfully back  to tbe lake, hoping agaiust hope. Ilartl-  Jy liael hu opono- his lantern when the  fianio sprang out, nud, iucrnnsing perceptibly in size, glided "noiselessly over  tho surface of tbo water lo the center of  tho lake, whoro it disleuded and separated itself iuto broad green leaves,  whence emerged tlio chaste Water Lily,  -which-onco -aioro-lifled���������its-fair-faoo to-  gazo on tho resplendent Moon.���������Carmen  Sylva (Qncoii of liounianin. in Ludy's  Realm.  dwelt, wero separated by a deep chasm  For all time cavaliers have given proof  of their easy consciences nnd have do-  jimmied moral perfection from their  own wives only. Tho cavalier brandished his lance in the sight of the Filch  wo.iss, to mako helievo ho wns going  a-jightiug,(.and tho Alpino Roses admired him ns ho passed nnd blushed  and regretted that tho cavalier Cculiau  hnd" set out in search of adventure instead of contenting himsolf with tboii'  churms.  But the Edelweiss was of too proud  aud ancient a linoago to show tho least  regret at his.dopavtnro anel remained  frigid aiid cool in her velvet robo near  tho terracoof horcastloand barely bowed hei" head us tho cavalier couched bis  lanci) ou passing boforo her.  Some timo afterward a falcon, wheeling overhead, perceived tbat this indifference was bnt assumed, nnd spoke lo  tho Edelweiss of tho water in tho valley  celow and of tho beautiful white Lily  whieh reigned over it. 1?_ told her bow  the cavalier Gentian hnd fought with  nnd been vanquished by Prince Narcissus, whoso perfumed darts had causi'd  hiin to fall senseless to the earth. Tlio  Edelweiss did not allow her emotion to  nppe.ir, but sho felt n cold fchivor run  throughout her frail body and would  willingly hnvo listened to further details, but th'a falcou had already llov.ii  away, and her diguity did not permit  her to recall him.
