forty members left Cranbrook
for Fort Steele on Thursday
evening, Leaving hero about 7
o'clock they arrived at Steele
about 0, and in half an hour were
silling down before well-laden
tables. A pleasant hour or two
was spent in the dining room of
the Imperial and than the drive

party and is to be congratulated
on the success attending it.
Reoreation Building.
Some weeks ago the readers of
these columns will remember a
discussion took place in regard
to tho erection of a building for
the purpose of a reading room,
game room and gymnasium.
The proposition then placed before tho public proved to be too
large, and the matter was
dropped, A great many young
nia-n requested Rav. J. P. West-
man to und rtake the erection of
a building; suitable for such purpose, with a guarantee of good
support, As a result the building is now being eroded and in
about two weeks will be opened
to tho public. We understand
the idea is lo open with some
large public fund ion. Further
announcement will be made later,
and the plan outlined more fully.
The Staples Lumber Co., also
North Star and East Kooienay
kindly came forward and expressed a desire that the work
go on, and have assisted very
materially in the success so far
attained.
SEISMIC DISTURBANCE
Shook Felt in Many Parts of The
Provinoe and in State of
Washington.
Nelson, Jan. 2—Nelson in
common with other sections of
the province, was visited by an
earthquake shock yesterday
morning. While it was not very
severe and did very little damage,
the shock was severe enough and
lasted long enough to give all
those who felt it a very definite
idea of tho possibilities of such
natural phenomena.
It occurred at 9 minutes to fi
a. m., and lasted about 10 second.
Every building in town was more
or less shaken, some severely
enough to startle the occupants
from their beds.
Rossland, Jan. 2.—At 5.42
o'clock this morning two distinct
and heavy earthquake shocks
were felt here. The first lasted
two seconds and then there was
an interval of five seconds and
then came a second series of
vibrations which lasted for five
seconds. It shook the plastering
off the walls in a few places and
knocked dishes off shelves, breaking a few. Trail and Nelson experienced a similar shock. They
sent messages to this city inquiring if there had bean another
powder explosion ascribing
shocks at first to that cause.
Victoria, Jan. 2.—Earthquake
shocks were reported from two
stations to the meteorological
office today. Kamloops reported
a disturbance at 5:30 a. m. The
shock was travelling southeast
and northwest, and lasted ten
seconds. Rossland also felt it at
5:50. Tho seismograph record
here is taken off the instrument
and developed only at the end of
each week, so it is impossible to
tell until Saturday whether it
was registered here or not.
Grand Forks, Jan. 2.—At 5:30
this morning Grand Forks was
visited by the most severe earth
quake shock ever experienced in
the past 15 years. Thu shock
lasted about a minute and made
many buildings tremble. It appeared tb come from a westerly
direction.
Spokane, Jan. 2.—Spokane
was visited by the tirsi earthquake in its history at fi o'clock
this morning, when many persons were awakened by a decided
trembling, which lusted fully liO
seconds. The vibrations were
east aud west.
Revelstoke, Jan. 2.—An earthquake shock, lasting several seconds, was felt this morning at
5:55. No damage done beyond
making the windows rattle and
startling the inhabitants.
Ymir, Jan. 2.—Two earthquake shocks were distinctly felt
here at 4 o'clock and li o'clock
this morning.

West and East.
Sometimes those of us in the
west may think we have rather
hard times, but in order to show
a comparison between ourselves
and those of the east we publish
the following, taken from a leading publication in a town of over
two thousand, surrounded by a
thriving community.
"That "Chief" Bissett oarns
his salary of 1B37E a year, besides
Ihe $10 paid him for acting as
truant officer may be gleaned
from the number of duties he
has to perform. He is town
constable, street commissioner,
looking after the cleaning and
grading of the streets, inspector
of sidewalk construction,  keeps
Lib on the ileotrii lights when
burning, sanitary inspector, tax
coll letor, for which hi gives a
$5000 bond, serves or posts all
notices, looks after the town tank,
runs tht! gasoline engine at the
river at intervals, collects poll
taxes and looks out for canines,
for which he also collects taxes."
If we could hire meu that
cheap we could soon afford to
buy the waterworks and electric
light system,

EAST KOOTENAY.
The Banner Mineral Produoing District in British Columbia.
British Columbia's mineral
production for the year 1905,
shows a material increase over
that of 1901. The estimated production, by districts, is as follows:
 * 4ii0,l)0O
Cusstair aud Atliti	
     503,500
East Kootonay	
  1,1127,500
West Kooteiuty	
.  ... 8,700,000
l.illooet	
       30,000
.... 5,051,500
  2,874,500
Miscellaneous	
760,000
Total	
....$20.98,3.000
All increase of 20,500,000 lbs.
of lead, or 50 per cent, more than
the production of 1904, is very
satisfactory. The sources of
this production were as follows:
East Kootenay 24.000
Ainsworth and Slooan  ;i,iill8
Other purls of li. 0     73S
Total, tons 2S,li:ili
The coal production is also
very satisfactory. Vancouver
Island mines produced 690,178
tons. The Crow's Nest Pass
collieries produced 746,092 tons.
The quantity of coke made was
271,433 tons. At the Crow's
Nest Pass ovens 261,933 tons,
and the Wellington colliery ovens
9,500 tons.
By far the greater part of the
net gain of $325,000 made in silver is credited to East Kootenay,
where the St. Eugene and Sullivan groups of mines are located.
The above figures indicate that
Kast Kootenay is the banuer
silver-lead, coal and coke producing district of the province.
The St. Eugene silver-lead mine
is the largest producer of lead in
Canada, with the Sullivan group
second. The Crow's Nest Pass
collieries are also the largest
producing coal mines in the province, and producing the largest
amount of coke made in Canada.

Intermediates vs. Seniors Contest
New Year's Day.
The second game between the
I. H. C. and Seniors took plaee
nt the Columbia Rink on New
Years Day. A large crowd assembled and all were given, at
times, an exhibition of good
playing.
The game was called at 2:30
by Referee J Staples, who as
usual, acted his part well. Rev.
.1. I' Westman was official time
keeper and R. S. Baron and
Fred Haynes were goal umpires.
Following was the line up:
SENIORS.

One or two observations might
be made. The players should
guard the "off-side" a little closer and not cause the whistle to
be blown so often, and if we
might offer a criticism we would
suggest lhat more playing be
done by good passing and not
lifi the puck quite so much, The
on lookers prefer to see quick
passes, aud in addition Ihe great
lifting days are over; hut leaving
this aside there were some ex- '
cellent plays and the boys are
to be congratulated ou the improvement made in a week.
Al Ihe face off Morris got the
puck and some lively passes took
place, but nothing was done for
15 minutes, Thou Tula' shut ou
goal and was successful, two
minutes later Patton got the
puck and with a swill shot from
center made it 2-0, Shortly after
Gallon does the trick and makes
it Iln for Ihe I ll. (',, and thi--
ends the first half.
lu the second half Morris gets
the puck and scores in two minutes and then the game gets interesting. The Seniors remember Christmas and are determined to start the new year
aright, but Morris scores in two
minutes and now il is 5-0 for I.
H. C. But now after face off
is the fire. Graham gets the
puck on face-off and it is Graham,
Chapman, back to Graham to
Prest, who scores in one minute.
It was a clever play and just
here we would remark ou the
good passes of these three, and
had all played in the same manner and not done so much lifting
the score would have been different. Again Prest scores from
center and almost immediately
afterwards Graham finds the
goal. Now it is 5-8, aud the
crowd gels interested and some
get on the fence with enthusiasm
and urge on their friends. The
Seniors have hope, bul soon Morris makes it 6-8 and despile ail
efforts thus il stood when time
was called.
For ihe 1. H. (', we would mention particularly the good work
of McConnell in goal, and Greer
excelled himself at point, always
in his place and perfectly cool
and sure. Patton was good and
shot well. Gallon is swift and
passes well, and if he or Morris
halve any show the score mounts
one Hamilton makes a good
rover and is quick, while Tale
showed Ihe need of practice, bul
did well in the game.
If such clean games continue
we can assure the boys ihal they
will he patronized and a deep interest will be manifested in their
sports.

Communicated.
Editor The Prospector i
Sir:—1 bos 1° submit for consideration whether it would not
bo more beneficial to the public,
if poll ti sal aspirants and editors
would bend their talents towards
the discussion of principles that
shall benefii Canada. Our premier stated that British Columbia had paid the Dominion government 115,000,000 moro than
tho province had received.
There is no question in our minds
about the justice of British Columbia paying ber share towards
national support, and we very
much question whether it is not
ber 'i wn fault if more is paid,
National revenues are principally derived from tariff, and
this tariff is so adjusted us to
draw tho largest possible revenue from the profits without regard for anything else. He-
sides the large sums collected in
this way they aro often published as a cause of rejoicing
when it should be looked upon
as our shame. The present pol
icy of low tariff is taking nearly
one hundred millions from our
circulation medium (gold) to the
United States yearly, thereby
depriving us of a sufficient volume of money for Canadian use,
so that our country and provinces have to borrow and pay oul
vast sums as interest,, and giving
special favors to syndicates and
millionaires who oft-times rule
the people with a rod of iron.
The United States found out
what money borrowing mount to
them when McKiuley was elected, when a high protective tariff
became a law, and since that
time the States have loaned several billion dollars. Along these
lines out- City of Cranbrook
should be greatly interested.
Had the same tariff laws now existing in the Stales prevailed
here in Canada, and in the province, since our town of Cranbrook came into existence, Cranbrook would have been twice its
present size. This combined
with individual efforts lo produce, as far as possible, all that
we need and sell or trade to
others. The surplus is what
makes a prosperous community.
A short time since when talking
to a Scotchman about his class
of freetraders being an injury
to Canada because they permitted the States to take our circulating medium from us. and finding himself at a loss for a reasonable argument to refute our
statements, exclaimed, "and we
will have to go there, too "
We hail the approaching dawn
of a brighter day. Free traders
like Dr. King and our Liberal
editor of the Herald have no objection to a tariff on lumber to
equal that of our neighbors to
the south. British Columbia
elected seven representatives
professing like ideas into an ostensibly free-trade camp at Ottawa, where we hope they will
bloom into a more congenial
party, one that will have Canadian interests iu their hearts
and minds. Canada is far too
reckless with its circulating medium and for Ihe actions of our
premier's financial economy we
should feel truly thankful.

Good Manners.
Hardly anything is of moro
consequence than politeness in
a boy or girl, One mother tells
her children, "Always use good
manners at home and then, when
you go among strangers, you
need never be alarmed, for it
will be perfectly natural to be
polite and respectful."
