Great Falls, ,Feb. 12.-In the discus
slon of the Edmonton route to Dawson
City and the gold fields there has alt
ways been one difficulty. There is usu
ally no report of any one who has fol
lowed the trail continuously. The fol
' lowing letter from a gentleman at Dun
vegan will settle the feasibility of the
route for the greater part of the way.
The gentleman writes as follows: "In
speaking of the country north of this
(Dunvegan) I will give you what I
know about it, and I have lived here
for some 11 or 12 years. There is no
white man's trail from here over to the
Liard, although perfectly practicable,
but there has hitherto been no incen
tive to travel there. Right here at
Dunvegan there are Indians and half
breeds who have gone within sight of
the Liard's banks with horses. They
did not follow any trail, but pitched
about hunting. Jack Graham was seen
across the Nelson and presumably he
got there or else he would have re
turned. Ogilvie's pack trail is a myth
as far as a horse trail is concerned. Of
course, Ogilvib did see trails, but they
were man and dog trails. The horse
trail starts from Hudson's Hope. The
party sent out to explore the route to
the Pelly (Inspector Moodie's police ex
ploring patrol) traveled on ice up the
Halfway river to a point at which the
above-mentioned Hudson's Hope trail
crosses the river. You must know,
however, that from St. John to this,
point on Halfway river there is a -prac
ticable trail for pack horses. 1 have
never heard of any cause why this ov
erland route should not be perfectly
practicable. Once at the foot hills there
is plenty of feed for horses, but in the
middle pass there is very little for a
day or two. In going by the middle
pass you would not go by the Liard
river unless you crossed it on the west
side beyond its junction with the
Dease.. The route deviates from the
air line set down by Gairdner & Harri
son's map, but in my opinion will be
the route used. Inspector Moodie and
party went by this pass, and when last
heard from they were on the summit,
Dec. 22. and with the probability of be
ing at Fort Graham by the Ist of Jan
uary, and from there a good trail ex
ists to Sylvester.
"I will mentton a route wimen does
not seem to be receiving any attention.
This is one from Lesser Slave lake to
Peace river crossing and then over
land on the north side of Peach river.
This country is fine prairie land for 60
miles, terminating 25 miles north of
Dunvegan, and then on to a point
where Inspector Moodie left the icq on
Halfway river, not touching Fort St.
John at all, which would be fully 20
miles south. There is no reason why
Fort St. John should be touched at
all. By the route from Lake St. Ann
to Fort St. 'John you have the Little
and Big Smoky, the Bear, the Clear
water, the Pine and then the Peace
river to cross. All of these have banks.
compared to which the Saskatchewan
is a mere rut. On the north route
that is, north of the Peace-there is
not one river with the banks more for
midable than the Sturgeon at St. Al
bert, and then there are only two. You
do not cross the north Pine river at all
unless you turn from your direct
course and go to St. John. After leav
ing the Peace the North Pine runs
northwest for eight or ten miles and
then seems to run parallel with the
Peace toward the Halfway river, but
it soon comes to a head. This is the
pack trail now used by the Indians
on the north side, but they always go
into Fort St. John because they want
to, although they say the direct route
is to go across country and it is much
shorter to Halfway river. In the win
ter time by ice to Fort St. John is the
best, but you must travel before the
8th or 10th of April, possibly before, say
the last week in March. Hay and beef
are for sale here by Bremner & C'o.
There is plenty of hay to be purchased
at Peace river crossing and Lesser
Slave lake. This winter has been mild,
with very little snow."

THE DEAL IS ON.
L. S. Woodbury Has an Option From J.
L. Bright on the Spotted Horse.
Great Falls. Feb. 12.-This evening
the Standard reporter had an interview
with LI S. Woodbury regarding the
status of the Spotted Horse mine at
Maiden. For some time contradictory
stories have been printed in one of the
local papers, sometimes affirming and
sometimes denying that Mr. Woodbury
had an option on the mine from its
owner, J. L. Bright. Mr. Woodbury,
who has just returned from a trip down
the Great Northern, said that he had
not only an option on the Spotted
IHorse (which he drew from his pocket
and exhibited), but that he had a let
ter from Mr. Bright confirming sul'h
option. More than that. he had met
Mr. Bright and had a long conversa
tion with him, and in that conversa
tion Mr. Btright had tAld him that if he
consummated a dtial he should wire
him and he. Mr. Bright. would imme
diately come to Great Falls and sign all
the papers necessary to ierfect the
change of title.
Mr. Woodbury stat-ed that so far as

TO CHANGE THE ROAD.
The Servr Rapitdly Pregrslyeig is the
Biteems et Riaevltli-Pr.Wspetisg
Aee o d Arminsgtl.
Belt, Feb. 12.-A party of Great
Northern surveyors are still working
on the benach land west of Belt creek
and are progressing rapidly in the dl
redtlons of Riceville. While it is not
posible to learn anything definite,
everything seems to indicate this sur
vey is really being made with a view
of changing the present roadbed and
doing away with the heavy grade out
of Belt. At the present time, coal
trains must all have a helper to the
top of the hill, a distance of five miles,
2O cars making a full train for the two
engines. The Neihart train on her trip
down from Neihart is compelled to set
out 12 or 15 loads at Belt, not being able
to handle her full train up the hill. The
extra that is now making special trips
to Barker must also reduce her train
here. In order to keep the business
moving an extra train crew must be
sent out from Great Falls- to Belt to
pick -up these loads. All this is very
expensive and it is believed- the rail
road officials are going to try to do
away with it.
It is said the new survey will strike
the present roadbed at Riceville. At
that point there is a natural and easy
grade from the creek bottom up on to
the bench and a single engine could
haul the heaviest train without help.
There would be but little grading on
the proposed new route and another
advantage is that all danger from high
water and unsound bridges between
Riceville and Belt would then be re
moved.
The Sand Coulee Coal company,
which is owned by the Great North
ern, now have diamond drills prospect
ing on their coal lands about one mile
west of Armington. The parties in
charge are very reticent regarding the
results they are securing. It is be
lieved, however, they are entirely sat
isfactory. They are also driving two
tunnels on Niel creek, which is about
half way between Kennedy's addition
to Belt and Armington.
Through the courtesy of the men in
charge, a Standard correspondent was
allowed to enter the tunnels and pro
ceed to the face of the drift. In the
first, which is in, perhaps, 100 feet, they
have four feet of coal of a very fair
quality. In the other, which is in a
distance of 60 or 70 feet, was found
five and a half feet of good, clean coal
which, it is said, improves as they get
farther from the surface. Fifteen men
are now employed at the drills and in
the tunnels, and it is said if the pros
pecting now going on proves the coal
to be as good as it is believed to be, the
property will at once be opened up and
worked extensively.
In all probabilities the work of the
Anaconda company will at some time
extend so far into the hill that it will
be a' paying proposition for them to
sink a shaft and hoist the coal to the
surface. This would probably be a mile
and a half- or two mileS west of their
present tipple and upon the bench land.
The railroad company, in addition to
saving the great expense occasioned by
the present heavy haul out of Belt.
would be enabled to name a much low
er freight rate on coal from these
points to Butte and Anaconda.
Everything seems to indicate that the
Armington mine will soon be working
and that some radical changes will be
made on the Neihart branch of the
Great Northern. Some of the old resi
dents have been heard to remark that
they believe J. J. Hill is exercising his
wonderf"l gift of being able to look
into th. future; that already he sees
coming, the fulfillment of the prophesy
of the Ne.ihaart Herald, which was
copied in a recent number of the Stand
ard. and that he is preparing for a rush
I of business from this part of the world
in the not very distant future.
MINING IN FERGUS.
Miners at Gilt Edge Paid in Cash Instead
of Promises.
Great Falls, Feb. 12.-Mining enter
prises over in Fergus county are being
handled in a style which is new to that
country. From the beginning there was
nothing but fraud and chicanery in the
management of the Gilt Edge until L.
S. Woodbury got control of it, and later
E. W. King of -this city. The miners
had been in the habit of scrapping for
their wages and more often losing them
than seeing the cash. With Mr. Wood
bury a new order of things began. The
miners were paid and paid promptly
whether the management made a cent
or not. It is evident that Mr. King is
carrying out this same line of procedure
if one may judge from what the Argus
says. In its last issue is the following:
"At Gilt Edge the mill is now hand
ling about 80 tons of ore per day and
this will probably be increased soon to
100 tons. The ore is being taken from the
Gilt Edge and Fraction lodes, and while
of low grade, when worked in large
quantities and under careful manage
ment, is bringing the company good re
turns. There are few idle men in the
camp, yet the demand for laborers is
amply supplied. At present some 65
men are employed, the mill hands
working in two shifts and the miners
in three.
"E. W. King, manager, says that as
soon as the legal controversy over the
titles is settled, if his interests be suc
cessful, many improvements will be
made. Among these will probably be a
gravity tramway for the conducting of
the ore from the mines to the mill. But
so long as the title to the properties is
so heavily clouded it is unwise to make
heavy Investments.
"Mr. King presents striking con
trast to 'Honest Bob.' who shone so
brilliantly at Gilt Edge for a brief
space. When Mr. Ammon moved he
had shining gold bars to show the curi
ous., but when pay day came his em
ployes got a 'stand-off.' To use Mr.
King's own language, 'I prefer to show
the employes a little more gold and the
public a little less.' With a mining
camp 'no news is good news.' and Gilt
Edge is no exception. Every man is so
busily employed and so promptly paid
that he hdfs no time for 'high jinks' or
fairy tales."

Great Fills, Feb. 12.-The latest from
the gold finds on Hay river is contained
in a dispatch from Prince Albert, which
says that "word has just been received
by Bishop Pascal from northern mis
slonaries that gold in large quantities
has been dlscovered on the Hay. Buffalo
and other rivers running into Great
Blave lake, a distance of about 700 miles
north of here. The information is con

route is a comparatively easy one. The
discovery was made by a party of 27,

WANT AN INJUNCTION.
To Restrain Treasurer Geletherpe From
Selling the Hospital.
Great Falls, Feb. 12.-This afternoon
the Sisters of Charity of Providence, in
the state of Montana, petitioned the
district court for an Injunction against
W. H. Gelsthorpe, the county treasurer,
to restrain him from selling the Colum
bus hospital property to pay the de
linquent taxes of 1897. The petition
sets forth about the same facts as those
in the former case wherein the district
court ruled against the county and
stated that the institution was one
of charity, not self-supporting, and
not an organization for the purpose of
making money. The sale of the prop
erty was to have taken place to-day.
The former case was to restrain the
treasurer from selling the property for
the taxes of a previous year. Personal
service was acknowledged by the
treasurer and the sureties on the un
dertaking were Gold T. Curtis and H.
H. Matteson, both of the First National
bank. Brady & Freeman are attorneys
for the plaintiff.
Deputies Cut Oft.
Great Falls, Feb. 12.-This afternoon
the county commissioners cut off three
of the sheriff's deputies, the one at Nel
hart, one at Belt and one in Sand Cou
lee, This leaves the sheriff with an
under sheriff, a jailer, one deputy in
the city, one at Sand Coulee, one at
Cascade, at Belt and at Sun River. The
sheriff has not yet decided which of his
men he will allow to go.
Bitten by a Dog.
Great Falls, Feb. 12.-Freddle Lauer,
a small boy residing on the west side,
was bitten this morning by a dog be
longing to the Harrity family. The
boy's parents made complaint and the
dog was killed by the dog catcher. The
bite was in the fleshy part of the leg
and is not thought to be very serious.
UNCERTAINTY OF EVIDENCE.
Interesting Incident Where Circumstauese
Did Not Tell the Truth.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A citizen of Galveston, who believes
that Durrant was innocent of the
crimes charged against him, told the
following incident, which shows the
fallibility of circumstantial evidence.
"One case which came immediately un
der my observation occurred in Lon
don, England, some years ago. A
young man, known to be somewhat of
a spendthrift and a dissipated charac
ter, was accused of murdering his un
cle, whose heir he was.
"The evidence showed that on the
day of the death of the old man the
nephew had called on him just pre
vious to a hunting trip into the coun
try, with a shotgun in his hand. The
servants in the house heard the two
men quarreling, then there was an in
terval of silence, and finally, after
some minutes, the report of a gun.
When the old man's room was reached
his body was found lying on a sofa
with a charge of buckshot through his
heart. His nephew's weapon was ly
ing across a table near the body, with
one of the barrels discharged, but the
owner was nowhere to befound. The
officers were notified and the young
man was tinally located and arrested
in a neighboring village. He was,
after an incarceration covering a con
siderable period, brought to trial. The
damaging evidence noted above was
brought out, and the prisoner attempt
ed a defense which, until the last day
of the trial, appeared extremely weak.
"On the day mentioned, however,
the young man's counsel created a
sensation by bringing into the court
room an exact representation, consid
erabljy reduced in size, of course, of
the room in which the tragedy oc
curred. In this miniature room was
arranged a dummy, representing the
deceased, the sofa, the table, the gun
and all details complete. On a table
entirely across the room from the one
on which the weapon was found was
placed a glass of water, it having been
brought out in the previous testimony
that such a glass was in the room
when the tragedy occurred. The attor
ney, by means of a strong light and
reflectors, then introduced into the
room a ray of light which was ar
did the sunlight on the day of the sup
posed murder. Then the attorney
lproves, by means of scientific instru
ments and established facts, that at
the time of the report of the gun was
heard a ray of sunlight had penetrated
the windows of the room and shone di
rectly on the glass of water. From
there it was reflected onto the stock of
the gun, which was an old-fashioned
affaiir and when the cap was reached
by the ray the gun exploded, the
charge entering the body of the dum
my lying on the sofa. All of these
facts were demonstrated by the use of
the miniature room, and when the case
went to the jury it rendered a verdict
of acquittal without leaving the box.
"Of course, a case parallel to this
might not occur again in 1.000 years,
but it goes to show that circumstan
tial evidence should not be allowed to
take away the life of a prisoner. It
might be proper to confine a prisoner
against whom circumstantial evidenec
is particularly strong until some new
facts come out, but I do not think it
is right to convict and execut.' a pris
oner on circumstantial evidence no
stronger than that which hangedt Ilur

SOCIAL CUSTOMS IN SIAM.
Popping the Quesilon Done By Proxy.
Wedding Ceremony.
From the Rangoon Gazette.
The Siamese live in bamboo houses
built on piles from four to six feet off
the ground. The root of the house is
always of the dant palm, of which a
plentiful supply is obtainable on the
margins of rivers and streams. The
only door of the house-a folding one
is merely closed when the occupants
are away. Locks, bolts, etc., are prac
tically unknown. In villages consisting
wholly of Siamese thefts are uncommon.
Generally between the ages of 20 and 25
a man, as sooq as he has tilled sufficient
paddy (rice)' ta1id to keep him going,
seeks a homQz or himself. Girls are
given in msartMre from the age of 15.
The parents or near relatives-or in
their absence qgme headman-manages
the asking in marriage for the intend
ing bridegroom. The parents, or who
ever have been asked to do so, proceed
to the house of the girl's parents with
betel leaf rolled in the shape of cones.
If it is intended to encourage the man's
intentions the cones of betel leaf are
taken, and perhaps eaten. If they are
left untouched it is equivalent to, and
understood to be, a refusal; so after
some ordinary chat the emissaries re
turn. If accepted a visit is shortly after
paid again: this time with longcloth,
betel, etc. At this visit the date of mar
riage is arranged. Some old man is
called in to fix a propitious day. At
these meetings it Is necessary that the
mother of the girl should be present;
the presence of the father is immaterial,
though he is always informed of what is
going on. The girl herself is generally
in an inner room listening to what is
gong on outside. ,
On the morning of the day fixed for
the marriage, relatives and friends from
far and near who have received Invita
tions, verbally given, assemble at the
bride's house. Here a sumptuous break
fast is found ready for one and all.
Country liquor, which is in abundance.
is imbibed at intervals by groups of
men playing cards for small stakes. At
the appointed hour the bride and bride
groom, dressed in their best, kneel side
by side, first before their parents and
then before all those who are looked
on as elders, and simultaneously make
three bows to each. The palms of the
hands are placed together, and then
before the forehead. In this position
the couple bow their heads down to the
floor, on which has previously been
spread a cloth. After this a selected
guest gives them some good abvice,
and then they mingle with their friends.
As each guest enters, he drops into a
brass tray kept in some conspicuous
part tof the room as much money as
he UAjuord-e- sort at dowry. Some
give a rupee. some ten, some more,
some less. Presents in kind are also
permitteL~; ;thus a rich man may give
a pair o2a fiaoes instead. To go to the
wedding feast and not give something,
however, small, would be considered an
unpardonable insult. Elopements are
not infrequent. The couple gener
ally go away at night to some friend's
house in the village, and shift for them
selves after a few days. After a month
or so, or as soon as the storm has blown
over, third parties are sent to see what
the feelings of the girl's parents are.
If, as is not unusual, they are willing to
forgive. and it is shown that their re
ception will not be a warm one, the
couple pay a visit, taking rice, vegeta
bles, etc., as a peace offering. Then
matters gradually adjust themselves.
Odd numbers are lucky. There are

How to
Cure Catarrh.
Every sufferer from Catarrh should
know that it is impossible to cure the
disease with sprays, washes, inhale
tions, etc., which are universally used.
In fact, the experience of growlin
worse all the while is proof that the
treatment is all wrong. Many
who have been under treatment for
years and met with disappointment in
stead of benefit are willing to doubt
that there is any cure for Catarrh.
The trouble is that all of the treat
ment they have received has been mis
directed, and has not touched their
trouble. Catarrh is a stubborn deep
seated blood disease, and everybody
should know that to simply treat the
surface, that is, the local irritation,
does not reach the disease. A blood
remedy is needed, but it must be a good
one; a remedy which goes down to the
very bottom of the trouble and forces it
out. 8.8.8S. (Swift's Specific) is the only
one which can have the slihtest effect
upon Catarrh, for it is the oaly one which
goes to the seat of the disease, and per
manently gets rid of it. This is the only
reasonable way to treat Catarrh.
Mr. B. P. McAllister, of Harrodsburg,
Ky., had Catarrh for yers. He writes:
"I could see no improvement what
ever, though I was constantly treated
with sprays and washes, and different
inhaling remedies-in fact, I could feel
that each winter I was worse than the
year revions.
"F nally it was brought to my notice
that Catarrh was a blood disease, and
after thinking over the matter, I saw it
was unreasonable to expect to be cured
by remedies which only reached the
surface. I then decided to try S. S. S.,
and the results were gratifying, for
after a few bottles were used, I noticed
a perceptible improvement. Continu
ing to take the remedy, the disease was
forced out of my system, and a com
plete and permanent cure was the
result. I advise all who have this
dreadful disease to abandon their local
treatment, which has never done them
-any good, and take S.S.S. (Swift's Spe
ciaco), a remedy which can reach the
disease and cure it."
To continue the wrong treatment for
Catarrh is to continue to suffer. Swift's
Specific never fails to cure even
the most aggravated cases. It is a
real blood remedy, and cures Catarrh,
Rheumatism, Contagious Blood Poison,
Eczema, Cancer, Scrofula, and all other
blood diseases. S. S. S. is guaranteed
