Mining in the Kootenays
Development Work is Progressing-New Strikes are
Showing up in Good Advantage.
Considerable attention is now being devoted towards the mineral development of Southeast Kootenay.
This district produced enormous
wealth from Its mines ln the past,
and it Is very certain that there arc
great undeveloped resources at the
present time. This district has vast
areas of cnal, and coke is manufactured in quantities sufficient to supply a large number ol smelters aad
renuerlcu than at present In operation In Ilritish Columbia. It ls altogether Mkely that these resources,
Including the big sli ver-lead mines,
the copper mines ol the St. Mary's
district, and thc iron deposits ol
Dull river, will, as soon as the necessary transportation is afforded by
the construction ot tho Kootenay
Central railway, continue to attract
the attention of the promoter, and
It Is likely that Rngllsh and American capital wlll Und It convenient
and profitable to come Into this nearby mining district.
NORTH    STAR    MINK
The North Star mine has been
worked extensively in years past, and
at one time was the largest silver-
lead producing mine, also the largest
dividend paying mine in British Columbia.
The faith in the intrinsic worth of
the property and tbe tenacity displayed byi Mr. N. McLeod Curran, its
manager, has been about all that
tbe stockholders have had to sustain
them in working thc property. It
looks now as if the owners are to
have (heir reward.
A new strike of ore has been encountered, up the hill, between the
"old Kellogg shaft" and the wagon
road. The management has drifted
In about 900 feet, and a body of excellent ore reached, and the new discovery wlll be cross-cut to ascertain
Its extent.
HTKMWINDRR MINE.
The owners of the Stemwlnder have
not done much work during the post
year, being satisfied with the amount
ot ore known to exist at the present
time. The extent of the ore body oa
revealed hy the diamond drill Is
about 60 feet wide and has a depth
of nearly 100 feet, the ore is similar
to that found in the Sullivan Oroup
of mines, and as soon as a cheap
method of treating the ore is known,
the Stemwlnder will be placed among
tbe producing mines of the district.
The discovery was made near the
water level of Mark creek, and has a
trend northeast, and from Indications
seem to extend in a northerly direction under Sullivan mountain, and
In a southerly direction under Huckleberry bill.
As the openings, in the shape of
diamond drill holes, and drifts, are
located several thousand leet below
the two big silver-lead mines, it is
sipeeted that future development wlll
reveal the most extensive as well as
the most wonderful ore body In the
province.
HULUVAN OROUP OF   MINEH.
That the Kimberley district wlll
become ono of tho richest and most
productive silver-lead sections nl
Urltish Columbia Is the opinion of
mining men who own property in
this vicinity. The taking over or the
Sullivan (Iroup hy the CoiiHoliilatod
Mining and Smelting Co., and thc
conditions of the lease, is a sort ot
guarantee that something will be doing in the near future, and that the
Sullivan will once again he placed In
the list ot producing mines. Previous development shows that a large
amount of ore has been blocked nut.
The tramway has been recently Improved and a new   cable    installed.
Prom recent repotts received from
Kimberley, are to tho effect, that all
In all the Sullivan ls In splendid
condition for Immediate work.
PLACER   MININfl.
No mining region, embraced in the
Rocky mountains is possessed of
more interest, historical or otherwise, than the placer fields nf Wild
Horse Creek, and Perry Creek.   Hold
was discovered in the early sixties
on Wild Horse creek, and for nearly
50 years the historic old creek lias
poured forth its quota of gold to enrich tho world.
Placer mining on Perry creek has
also been a paying investment, It
was on this creek that a huge steam
shovel »as at work. This niachiiie,
though au experimental une, while in
operation proved successful. The
lnutnlatinn of the immense hydraulic
plant nl thc Perry (,'reck Hydraulic
Cninpany, and its success of the past
live years has demonstrated that the
placer gold nf this portion of the
district ls derived from the gold-
bearing rooks ol the Selkirk mountains.
It. B. Ourant, is now engaged in
doing the annual assessment work on
a gold quartz property which has all
the car marks of a valuable mine.
Some eastern capitalists have secured title to placer ground near Old
Town, and are now engaged in sink-
a shaft to bedrock, some 80 feet.
Machinery will he Installed, and
there is no doubt but that succesB
will crown their efforts,
the establishment "i n serai-ate Oa
nndinn nnvy is really a slop towards
Beperatlon from Clrc&i Orltsii nnd
the Empire, So far as ti„ i ouser-
vntivr party is concerned il must be
firmly and positively understood ttint
it hns neither pnrt oi lot with any
such proposal, and with any sm-li
reading of Imperial rolatious. King
Edward is our   King and Canada is

THK  PREMIER'S    IRRBVE

SOVEREIGN OR
SUZERAIN?
Laurier's Extraordinary Utterances at Toronto
A Covert Suggestion of Secession.
Ottawa, Jan. 19.—Sir Wilfrid Lnurler In his speech in Toronto of the
Sth ol January gave utterance to an
extraordinary view or the relations
between Canada, our King, and the
rest of the Empire. According to
thc report of thc Globe he said under
the suzerainty of the King of England. We arc his loyal subjects. We
bow thc knee to him; but the King
ol England has no more rights over
us than are allowed him by our own
Canadian Parliament.
The statement that King Edward
is merely our suzerain is either grent
loosement of statement or a declaration of something like secession
from tho British Empire. King Edward is our King, not our suzerlan.
A foreign power or monarch who has
rights of control over an alien and
subject country, is a suzerain, An
instance which is recent and which
will remain iu tho minds ol all is
that of thc Transvaal. British contention before the so called African
war was that the Transvaal republic
was under the   suzerainty of   fireat
Britain. Under that arralngcment
the Transvaal was Independent and
was subject under the British interpretation to a certain degree of control of Its foreign relations. There
was nn idea that Great Britain's
enemies would be thc enemies of the
Transvaal. There was no Idea 11
Great Britain went to war the Transvaal also would he in war. There
was no idea that If Great Britain
became involved in war the Transvaal would send a single man to
help her light her battles. The Transvaal had a seperate flag. Its citizens were not English. That is what
suzerain meant, and it is understood
in Ottawa that the Premier has been
commending his suzerainty Is the
term which Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
seen fit to apply to our relations
with our King, with the Mother
country and with the remainder of
thc Empire.
It Is understood iu Ottawa that the
Premier has been commending his
navy proposals to certain of his followers by representing to them that

HILL & COMPANY
In the course of Ids speech at tho
Ontnrio (dub in Toronto. .Sir Wilfrid Laurier is understood tn imve
caused great amusement among tho
diners by the following mock-lament
over the obBtlnato Tories of Toronto.
"Oh! Toronto, thou that klllest
the prophets! thou that stonest
those that are sent to thee! How
often would 1 have gathered tliy
ctiildren together nn 11 hen nnthers
her chickens under her wings; but,
all my efforts have been In vain."
It will bo seen thnt tills is n parody ol perhaps the most deeply uf
fecting utterance in the history ol
the world the lament of tho Snv
lour of man over the eity of Jerusalem as he entered that wicked ami
rebellious elty to conimenee his Pas
slon. Today we see that utterance
parodied to make a Jest loi a politl
cal dinner. Then from his expres
slon of sublime sorrow, to express
serlo-cotule lament ol a politician
who is sorry because a eerlnln rlty
does nut. vote for his candidates, it
is an expression of Irroverance that
In early and moro revernnt ages
would have been rogardoil ns blasphemy.
