1). Smiiuu-is nml .Mr. Hull, large owners
<>i Sullivan slock, have beer it Marysvllle mid tlie Sullivan m'm the past
week arranging the preliminaries for the
smelter and refinery al Marysvllle, and
the working of tlie Sullivan mine on a
large scale. Senator Turner returned
Tuesday evening to Cranbrook, and left
Wednesday fur Spokane. Speaking of
ibe movement undertaken by Ills company, Mr. Turner Raid that the low pi ice
nf lend had made ii practically Impossible for silver lend mines having ore of
ordinary grade to make nny profit by
sending their output lo Ihe smelters iu
the United States, and pay the exorbitant freight and treatment charges imposed by tbe smelter truit. What the
Sullivan com pa iiv proposed doing was
to build a smelter tit Marysvllle, near its
mine in Smith Bast Kootenay, Contemporaneously witli llie erection of the
smelter, it is the intention lo put up a
lead refinery. It is contended by Sena-
ror Turner and bis associates, that by
smelting tbe ore in British Columbia,
refining it in the same place, that they
cnn find a mirket for their lead and that
mines of a comparatively low grade can
Lit its he made lo pay. As far as a market Is concerned, lirst, there is ihe home
market to Ue supplied, and then there
are llie foreign markets. The American
lead trust pays four cents h pound for
lead to United States  mine owners, aud

Superintendent Mclntyre, ol tlie public schools, has uudertakeu to establish
a school library in Crauhrook, and in
doing so, should have the hearty support of Ihe people. The idea is one that
is heiug received with great favor
throughout Canada, and the following
from the Canadian Teacher, contains
some good points on the subject:
Tbe primary Hcbool ia not the only
school iu which busy work is profitable,
Iu almost every school there are odds
anil ends of lime which have no specified work, or there are pupils for whom
the work of the average pupil does not
furnish sulticient em ploy merit. There
are very few pupils who spend their
long winter evenings profitably. All
have some spare time every week which
they can devote to reading.
For all circumstances like these, the
school library is a great helper. It becomes au au assistant teacher for many
hours of school time, and au auxiliary
teacher for many hours outside the
school. More than this, its teachings
are in line with the work of the school;
for everything that is put into the school
library may be read profitably by the
pupil who will read it. Much also thai
is found in the library is in line with the
woik being done in the text hooks and
seives to supplement it No better as
sist,tut teacher can be found than a well-
selected school library.

distance, where the regular Perry creek
and Mission road would be joined. This
improvement would mean a big thing
for the people of Perry creek, and should
receive favorable attention from the
government. Short cuts to supply centers are necessary to advauce any district, and this road offers an excellent
opportunity   to demonstrate this   fact

F, Robbius. general manager of the

financial agent, were iu lown Friday and
Saturday. These gentlemen are completing arrangements for a trial ship,
uient of 100 tons of ore to Antwerp for

the mine and shipped direct to Antwerp
via Montreal. It is au experiment, but
if il proves satisfactory a contract will

J C. Drewry, nfter his recent trip
through South Mast Kootenay, was seen
11 Nelson hy a Miner reporter, and Ihe
following article is the result:
Mr. Drewry baa just been through
ICast Kootenay nnd expressed himself nn
linn zed at the progress that has l»eu
limit: there. The country was going
ahead by leaps and bounds, though the
utside world seems to know little about
it yel. At Moyie 85 men are engaged
developing ihe St. Kiigene. A three-
compartment shaft has reached the depth
of 105 feet and though within 41*2 feet of
the lake the water has caused no trouble
When ibis shaft is down 140 feet it it
the intention to run a level at 125 feet to
catch the north and south ledges and
Irift on them. The Sl. Eugene is not
likely to commence shipping- until the
tail market bus a more favorable aspect.
At Marysvllle there is much activity
through the construction of the smeltet
which the Sullivan people are going to
rect. Twenty men have started making bricks, for which water ha* been
brought through a ditch a mile and a
half long. The company will have
plenty of water for power purposes and
already has applied for 2000 inches for
manufacturing purposes.
There is noteworthy activity in the
railroad line also, said Mr. Drewery. A
corps of engiueers has been working for
several weeks under tbe direction of
Chief Engineer Lumsden between Kim-
berley and Marysville. They have completed the survey from Kimberley to the
Sullivan mine, and from Marysville to
the smelter site. This line will handle
tbe ore between tbe Sullivan mine and
tbe smelter. More important to the
hast Kootenay district generally, the
Canadian Pacific is alive to the situation
in tbe St. Marys river valley. Presumably to head off the Jim Hill Interests,
who obtained at the last session of tbe
legislature the charter for the Crawford
Bay & Port Steele road. Engineer
,u":sden has received instructions to
proceed Immediately with the location
of a C. 1'. R. tine up St. Marys valley
westerley from Marysville. Furthermore this work has 'ieen started, a big'
crew of surveyors is at work, and when I
left the line was located for four miles
up the river The significance of this
move will be apparent to anyone who
has given the proposition any thought.
Mill the boys had the nerve to stay with
it, nnd are prospering today in conse-

Perry creek will be a lively camp next
spiing, and a large number of men will
be employed in these diggings.
Oliver Btirgehas fitted up the hotel at
(lid Town in a most comfortable manner, and visitors to that camp will be
well taken care of.
Tbe Perry creek people are agitating
for a bridge across the St. Marys to con-
nect then wilb Marysville.
The new road that is being hui't on
the north side of Perry creek to French
creek is about completed and will form a
great help in getting in supplies.
It is now conceded that tbe bed of
Perry creek is one immense deposit of
gold and it only needs capital mid work
to bring tbe wealth to tbe surface.
Steam Shovel lor Miolai.
Phoenix Pioneer: Au era was marked
this week in tbe mining history of tbe
Boundary country, when the Oranby
company, after due examination of tbe
capabilities of the machine, placed an
order for a steam shovel for use at the
Knob Hill mine. The Grauby company
is welt knowu to be iu the forefront to
secure anything and everything that can
help the management in the operation
of the properties it owns, mid this is out
another step in the same direction.
During his recent trip to the iron and
copper mines of Minnesota mid Michigan, William Voleti Williams, superintendent of the Grauby company, paid
particular attention to the use of steam
shovels there, and found tbey where a
great  success,    On bis return,   afler due
consultation with the management of
the company, it was decided to utilize
one of them here at the Knob Hill.

The probability of an election in the
near future has aroused the campaign
spirit throughout ihe district, and there
U considerable talk these days an to
probable candidates and ihe policy to
be pursued In the election. It Is pretty
generally corceded that the elecilou
In mis district will be held on party
Hue-,, The liberals seem to favor such
action, and it Is presumed iiut the conservatives would not be averse to it
Niiurally, there will be an unusual de-
gree of Interest manifested w this
course Is pursued, and the election ot a
m unber will arouse greater excitement
tluu on any former occasion.
There are several receptive candidates In the Held In event of an election,
ami one avowed one. K. 0. Smith, the
present member, will stand again, and
judging from the general political drift
ai this time, Is the choice of the Liberals for the place- J, It. Costlgan, who
was a candidate at the last election,
has declared his Intention lo arhliatc
with ihe Liberal party, yet he will
hardly be j candidate, although his
name Is oiten spoken In this connection
J A, limey- the 1'ort Steele barrister,
Is referred to as llie one who would he
selected to lead the Conservative hosts.
He has made no public declaration but
ii is pretty generally understood that
Ilnklsls willing. W. It. Koss may cut
quite a figure In the calculations for a
candidate. He Is rather coy when trie
subject of politics Is mentioned, and
aays tittle but listens a great deal.
Cranhrooli may put a Richmond In the
field, bnl as yet nothing definite has
been done. It Is understood that Pet
nte, wllh Its largely Increased population, Is desirous of having a personal
rrprcrientatlve after the nest election,
bin auy move that tbe people of that
town may make will depend entirely
ii t mi certain developments.
It Premier I ijnsmulr makes good his
di tiaratlon that be will not resign, bul
proposes to hold on until the house
votes lilrn out, there cannot well be any
election until the house convenes In
Jinuiry. And It is possible that the
premier, with the help of .loe Martin,
may arrange matters so well that his
enemies will be put to rout and hi
friends smile serenely with Ibe know!
edge that victory Is theirs.
