and conditions were not. Bitch Hint
moro cntdng could well he bought
Around the Hlx-ineh casing, extend
ing down novernl hundred foot, is nn
eight-inch Clttilng, which hud boon
lined when  the drilling   wus   begun,
and nt the depth ut which the re
duct ion wus nuyde to six inches the
smaller caning was put down. The
drill has been idle now lor many
mouths.
Recently u Mr. McCloary came
here from Arkansas. He hud heen
tn poor health iu that, country and
was looking tor u place where coudl
tions were different, lie was an old oil
mun, und bud followed tlie husiness,
chiefly with thn Standard Oil Co.,
from boyhood. He spent many
years with tho Standard as an ex
pert looking up new oil fields and
examining prospects. Ho has visited and examined the oil Ileitis all
over thu world. He had quit tho
husiness and hud no intention of engaging in it again. In examining
into tbe resources of the country
after be arrived, be heard of the
discovery of oi.1 at Kintlfl hike and
other places along tbe main range,
and after going over the situation
with the ollicers of the Kintla Lake
Go,, and getting what information
he could that wuy, he made a trip
to Kintla Lake, and examined the
district carefully.
He reported that conditions are
much better than ho bad expected to
find them, und while be Is not willing to say thut oil can surely he
found in paying quantities, he is
hopeful that such is the case,
sanguine is he ttin't he has offered to
go to the well and take charge of
getting it in shape to sink further on
a basis thnt will call for a comparatively small outlay by the compuny.
His theory of the case is that as the
well was drilled "wet" It tilled up
with1 water, and there is a column
of wuter six inches in diameter and
1300 feet high. . This would effect
ually prevent any oil rising as the
great weight of the wuter would
press the oil back, if it were there.
He thinks it probable that at ubout
700 feet down, judging from tbe'log'
of the drilling, the drill went
through an oil Hearing sand und
but for the weight of the column of
water, oil would have jbeen secured
ut that depth.
The plan to be adopted is to draw
out all the casing; and when tbe end
of the six inch casing is reached,
join it to the eight-inch by means of
a reducer, and proceed with tbe
drilling. In all there are nearly
2200 feet of casing and much more
than will be necessary to reach the
depth it is intended to gu at the
present time. Mr. McCleary has a
special patented, contrivance which
will be used to exclude -wnter from
the well as the drilling proceeds, and
if oil is encountered there will he no
difficulty about getting it to the
surface,
Mr. McCleary does not hold out
the hope that oil will he found in
great quantities. He says the
quality is too high to look for a
great production but that with such
oil as is found iri the seepages an'd
has been taken from the drillings, a
great amount would not be required
to make it profitable. Inter Lake

ON    THK   DUMP.
Despite the drop in Sullivan stock
there is considerable buying. The
people of Kust Kootenay have great
faith iu the mine, now that it Is
being run on busiuess principles.
The Iron deposits of Southeast
Kootenay warrant extensive development, and tbe erection of reduc
tion works.
The truth is that nature so deposits her treasures that no single
generation oan discover uud exhaust
them all.
Important progress is being made
on several mining enterprises In
close  proximity  to ('ranbrook.
WHAT ORANBROOK HAS.
('ranbrook it tbe capital city of
the Cranhrook district. One half of
the entire population of tbe district.
live here, and it is larger than all
other townH combined.
Cranbrook bus all the government
buildings, and all public husiness in
the district must be transacted here.
It Is the seat of the judicial and
executive branches of the government.
Oranbrook has public schools, and
all religious denominations are represented by handsome church editiees
Cranbrook has many miles of graded streets und sidewalks. A sys.tem
of waterworks, electric lighting
plant, telegraph and telephone sys
terns that unite with every town and
camp in tbe district;
Cranlirook is the hub of the district. All roads und trails centre
at this city. Iflvofy to.wn, camp und
hamlet is fed and .supplied from it.
Oranbrook is the homti of families,
and Hie abode, uf a tixed Mid steady
population. It Ik the social, political, banking and commercial head
quarters for the entire district.
BBPORB AND  AFTER.
Hints to Municipal Voters. It is
customary for several weeks previous
to an election for tbe candidate to
be very observing to the wishes of
tbe   citizens.       Promises    for future
reform ure not stinted, und If sue
cossful, what he or they will do for
tho city would llll a lurge hook.
After the oloctloil the situation is
changed. Tbe citizens are the ones
to bow down before tho successful
candidate, and gently suggest that
there arc certain promises to be ful
tilled, certain wauls of the city to
he curried out; but alas, the sue
cossful one hus no time for consider
mi', (he wants id those who elected
him. For weeks heloie the election
Hie electors were sought for by day
and by night, in season and out of
season; the balance of the year the
nloctors have ample time to point
out what is needed in the city, slug
their title ot woe and point out to
the mayor or alderman, that, ho is
their mayor or uldermun, but don't
remind them or him of promtsos
made and long forgotten, nor of the
short weeks tbat be bowed to the
mnjOSty   of  the   people.
Moral See that the pledges or the
city olllciuls elected are curried out
in lull, or compel them to step
down and out.
'l'n WHOM  IT MAY  CONCERN.
Advertise the resources of this district. Now is thu time. The poo
pie in the eust are turning their eyei
this wuy, and it. would be well to
give them something to talk about.
Cranbrook has a richer country surrounding it than any similar district on earth, and all that is needed to build it. up, is proper advertising.

POLITICAL    POINTERS.
A report from Ottawa is to tbe
effect that 11. tl. MacPherson.M.P.
for Vancouver will he appointed
warden of the penitentiary at New
Westminster.
The Asiatic immigration question
was dealt with at some length by M.
S. McCarthy, M.P., in ins address to
the Trades and Labor council on
Monday evening at Calgary. Upon
the general question be sided with
labor, branding the Oriental influx as
unfair competition. It could not be
expected tbat the white man could
compete against the Orientals.
One of the Big Seven of llritish
Columblu has been appointed as
warden of the Westminster penitentiary. It would not he out of place
if Laurier and the machine found
similar jobs for the balance of the
big seven.

In Dominion affairs, this province,
as shown by the influx of Orientals,
is ripe for a change in the Federal
government.
Sir Fred. Borden's political career
has ended. He will not be a candidate for Kings next election. It is
uj) to the Laurier government to find
a position for him.
It is reported that the Lord's Day
Alliance on the whole is satisfied
with the Lord's Day Act, and will
not ask parliament to pass any further legislation dining the approaching session.
It Is Time. A report from Ottu-
; wa is to the effect thnt Mr. Aylesworth is to retire nnd will be replaced as minister of justice by Mr.
Pngsley , and that sir Federick Borden will tuke a back seat in favor of
J, M. Gibson as minister of militia.

Politics and the Bench.
Toronto Mail: Tlie judical
appointments of llm presenl
iittawu governmenl are Sometimes prudent; hut In inn many
cases thoy lack thai quality.
Tlie latest, lluit nf Mr. Llltl M"" ce,
M. I' , nf Nova Sootin, lo lite
bench of llis province, iscei'tainly
open to question, by reusiin of
the conditions appertaining I" it.
Laurence was returned to parlia
ment at the last geiioralelucllon,
During the session of 11100-7oom-
plaints came from Nova Scotia
touching the state of affairs in the
courts. It was represented that
owing to a vacancy un lhe bench
and the illness of one of llie
judges the business ol' the courts
was at a staudstill, The menus
of giving relief was lhe tilling
of the judicial vacancy, and lhe
government was petitioned to
take such action at once.
To Ihe appeals of the public
Ottawa was deaf, li refused In
make the appointment, and as a
consequence much injury was
done by the law's delay. The
statement wus freely made at the
time that the only reason for the
refusal of the government to appoint a uew judge was the circumstance Ihal the place was wanted
tor Mr. Laurence, Uie member
for Colchester. It was whispered that this politician wns required lo sit through the session,
and lo vote for till the evil
transactions, and Ihul afler thus
qualifying he would receive as
his reward tlie judical ermine.
Mr. Laurence did not deny
this report; nor did thu guilty
government. As a matter of fact
denial would have been useless.
Thai the politician in question
was designated for the bench
was true, and the truth ol' Ihe
report lo ihateffecl lias been admitted by the apnolutment just
made. Mr. Laurence has served
tlie government in Parliament;
now ihe government rewards
him Willi a position of honor and
emolument This appointment
is one of a number ot lhe same
kind ll is strikingly suggestive of the Laugelier appointment in Quebec. In that instance,
the judge-to he sal through a
session ol parliament witli Sir
Wilfrid Lnui'ior's written promise thai he should have lhe
next judicial vacancy iu his
pocket.
Whal we have in the Laurence
case is tin illustration of another
phase of th" Laurier system. A
public man is sent to parliament
to'gunrd the public inleresls He
has uot been there long when his
independence is impaired by the
intimation that the governmenl
has valuable positions iu its gift,
and thai one ol* them is for htm.
Thai iniin lias Hie choice of serving tlie people, and losing the
job, or nl vnling for all the
wrongs, and slipping into a fat
officefor life. That he will throw
away the ntlirois iuiproiinble.aiid
in nine cases nut of ten he takes
the bail. Tlm lime was wlien
the preservation of Hie indepen
deuce of parliament wns it Lib
oi-:iI principal; but this was before lhe evil men secured control
of the parly.
