on tne land) and which hu shall owe

householders will be paying other
taxes, and as to these, of course,
tliere will be no uncertainly, but a
great many will only pay* the road
las of $2.00 per head; and who will
pay this tax is also uncertain, because, although lhe Aet provides!

municipality shall pay sueli taxes,,

Clauses Act the council is given |
power to define which of that class

whereby a householder was defined as

idea Irom lhc time Ihal he lust engaged in ihi- manufacture ol lumbei

to servo the manufacturer and look
after ihe interests of the consumer

joins with the people of Cranbrook
in wishing for Mr. Cudlelgh lhe best

may he continue to climb lhc ladder
of railway preferment. Mrs. Ohud-

Rossland, Deo. 16.—At 2 o'clock
lliis atti'riiooii about a uut of gelignite in lite thawing house ot the
Center Star mine exploded, tliroti|-li
some unknown cause, killing John S.
Ingram, formerly chief of police here,
ami also at ualgaty anil Winnipeg,
ami injuring several scores ot people.
Ingram was In charge of the powder,
and his death removed the only possible source of Information as to the
cause of the explosion. His hotly
vvas removed Irom the debris badly
mangled, Lockhart, assistant diamond drill operator, who was al
work under the Center Star oHices,
was badly cut about the head antl
legs, but will recover. Several members of the nllice stall and men in the
compressor building were hurt by
Hying glass or by being thrown violently against the machinery. Buildings in llie Immediate vicinity were
twisted out ol shape and liie windows all broken.
The big War Eagle boarding house
is badly damaged, some of the inmates being slightly injured. In the
cily the shock of the explosion caused much consternation and did a
large amount of damage. Nearly all
the plate glass windows on Columbia
avenue were smashed, many people
■iving cuts from the fragments.
I'he merchants had their Christmas
gootls displayed, much destruction being wrought among these, The
amount of glass destroyed is enormous, and heavy Importations lor repairs will be necessary. The citizens
leel thankful, nevertheless, that the
loss of life and properly was not
greater, The Center Slar, War
Eagle and l.e Roi mines will be shut
down for a few days, because of Injury tn the steam and air pipes and
compressor machinery and the practical wreck nl the buildings containing them. The damage cannot he
exactly appraised, but ii is thought
it will reach probably $50,000,
John S. Ingram loaves a widow
and five children.
The list ol ihe Injured:
K. M. Hrown, badly cut abonl
Mrs. E. M, Purcoll, liadlv cut,
Mrs. Oiiirgc Cain, cul aboui face.
Mrs. Leary Donohiie, badly cul
and bruised about face and wok.
Wm. Lockhart, nose severed.
Wm. Tomllnsnn, nose cut.
Many more were slightly injured In*
falling glass.

Victoria Colonist: Wilh the announcement ol the sale ul tho -Mc-

contained In a despatch Irom Nelson
published yesterday, mining men
quainted with the conditions In

big sted making industry in southern
British Columbia. Interviewed with
regard tu ihe sale and the probable
uiu look tui thu erection uf tolling

ul Nelxou, who Is iu ihe city, stated
iu a Coiuiusi reporter that lie bad
recoived confirmation of ihu sale, lie
is well acquainted with lhu properly
having in October made a report on
the group fur lhu owners and lhu
prospective purchasers, It is un his
report that the purchase has noon
concluded.    He said:
' I have for five years done my ut-
most tu direct attention tu the hematite deposits of Koolenay, and ever
since 1 negotiated the deal for the
Kitchener properly wilb thu Canadian
Pacific railway 1 have felt convinced
that it was only a quest inn of a very
tow years before steel would he manufactured somewhere mi Kootenay
lake, I consider that lliis deal assures its accomplishment iu tho near
future ami is a factor of pr mo Importance in the development of this
Speaking of the iron on this group,
he said it was high-grade specular
iicniaLite entirely free (rom phosphorus and tetanium, and containing
a luw percentage uf silver. The Veins
are nut iiiterslralilied lu any considerable extent with Inferior matter,
ihe uuly admixture being lime, which
wuuld render tliu mailer uf fluxing
easy ul accomplishment. There aie
Lhree well-duliued veins oil the property frum niuu to twelve feet iu
ividiu. Seven claims aru iu the
group sold.
in discussing the commercial aspect
uf the iron manufacturing industry,
Air. Blakemore pointed out that uio
cost of steel manufactured iu Lho eastern Slates and transported frum
-,UUU to 3,tWU miles Lu this province
emails a very heavy freight charge.
The present consumption ul pig iron
ni British Culumhia is ruuginy dtir
uuu ions a year, but in the neighboring States to the south—Molilalia,
Idaho, Washington and Oregon—the
consumption exceeds liw.uuu tons,
and throughout the Paeilie Northwest
ihu demand is rapidly increasing,
"Steel works established on Kooteuay would dominate the whole territory," he said, "and would enable the
manufacturers to place the highest
grade iu the market at a price at
which it would bu impossible fur eastern manufacturers to compete aud
pay the minimum charge of about
$20 a ton for transportation, At the
,iresent lime pig iron in the Kootenays costs $32 a ton, ou the coast
from $22 to $25, and in the Northwest Territories iu the neighborhood
f Calgary and Kdmunton from $30
in S-'Jfi. In my opinion pig iron can
lie produced iu thu Kootenays fur $10
tu $12 a lon, and tliere is au abundance of lime either on ur adjoining
ihe iron claims and the best smelting
fuel, namely, Kernie coke, is produced
within lfib miles and can be laid
down on Kootenay laku fur $5 a
"Why has not the industry been established ere now,'" asked thu reporter.
Because of the small market heretofore and the objection on thc part
of capitalists that ihe tonnage consumed was not large enough to justify the necessary outlay in plant and
development," he replied. "But nuw
there are modern processus which
have enormously reduced the economic
unit . The electrolytic process,
which has recently been investigated
in Germany and Sweden by Dr,
Haanel, head of the Canadian mining
department at Ottawa, has been proved lo be applicable under such conditions as exist in thu Kootenays, and
Dr. Haanel thought a production of
11,01) tons a year an economic unit,
so that 30,000 tuns would bu ample
to ensure profitable operation. But
I am thoroughly convinced that if
works were established in tho Kootenays the whole of the market whicli
1 have outlined would be secured
without question.
"I am al the present time engaged
in writing a paper ou "The Possibilities of Steel Manufacture in British
Columbia," for the Canadian Mining
Institute and the consummation ol
the McM Ulan-Rob bison deal at such
a time is most opportune," hu concluded.
The purchasers of the group of Iron
claims are Cleveland and St. Paul
capitalists headed by Mathias Huts-
ling, nf the former city. The prici
paid is said to be In excess of $"),-
000, and the new owners have announced their Intention to spend $50,-
000. in the immediate exploitation o"
their holdings. In the spring ;

The latest proposal of the C. P. R,
is to loop lbe big hill at Field. Il
will be a costly undertaking, probably requiring the expenditure ol a million and a halt. The grade on the
big bill Is the heaviest on any line
on the continent, running from '3J
to 4£ per cent., and that in a distance ol seven miles the length of lhe
grade. The loop will be an extensive one, over twnty miles, hut then
tho grade will not be more than one
per cent, although the distance is
prolonged three lold. The loop at
Glacier is only 5J miles long. The
work on the new loop will be exceedingly heavy, as it will be principally rock work, but the scenic
views will compensate ono for the
increased distance ol travel.

The pasl year has been a peach fur
Cranl k. '
The     party organ    i-s like   a sick
child.       It   has lo lake  ils  ini-ilicilie.
N'u party is perfect, and tin1 news-
paper ihal stands up fur thc mis-
lakes uf iis parly or dishonest acts
nf itmi parly, is soon recognized as
a political luui and has neither
welghl ur influence.
Honesty is m.i a bud thing to cultivate hi Ihis world, And especially   is   Ihis   lhe case   in   the  lasl,    year
ur two, since honesty is growing in
popularity. If it becomes lhe hig
thing in polities and business it will
.io hard ou some people,
When a man goes into public life
he musl expeel moro criticism than
[naise. The thin skinned man has
no business in a public capacity.
When you see a man elected by the
people Io a public olliee and then
use llial  Ofllco tu gel   even wilh     Ihe
real or Imaginary enemies ymi can
form some kind ol an idea what kind
..I a newspaper man he would make.
Such a thing as fairness to all men he
would Know nothing about or would
la- he willing iu recognize such a
principle. Such men would nol
make safe men fur a newspaper, and
ihey are mine worthless and less safe
as public office holders.
The   Herald   prints   the   news.   That
is why iis subscription list continues
to grow. More people read the Herald to-day iu Soulh Easl Kootenay
iliati any paper published iu ilns
section. Ii pays to be honest with
the people, and it pays to be cour-
agcous enough to tell ihc truth.
A man may be a fine politician bin
a miserable failure as a statesman.
The Nelson Economist says thai
Uie Herald pleases holh parlies, We
don't doubl bul ihal lhe Herald
pleases I'he lionesl men uf both parlies. This paper is always ready to
condemn mistakes iu 'lhc Liberal
party and give praise fur good w irk
done by tbe Ciniscrva'tlvcs. The
Herald believes thai ibe Liberal
p.irly has done wonders Ior the development of Canada during the
pasl nine years, aud is entitled lo
unbounded praise for what ii has accomplished. Il is no use li) kid:
against progress. Canada is pro-
grossing. There may he some men
wlm would rather see dull times

Mr,. McBride wc ,1" le d bounty
a great send-off bill failed to mention tbo bounty.
Government surplus is an easy
mailer when you increase lbe (axes
and never spend a eenl. We knew a
ninn in Kansas, a farmer, who used
lo boast of ins big bank account. Ho
had a right to because he had a
large one, He also had a wife thai
was nearly dead from overwork, he
had lhree boys who were kept at il
llko slaves, ho had a homo thai was
a disgrace to him, he had a farm
thai was not well kepi up, he bad
lust happiness and contentment
while indulging in Ihal one desire,
lu accumulate a surplus. Hoth he
and his wife would have been bel ler
off if the surplus bird nol been so
large, holh of his hoys would have
been iu belter condition if the surplus had not been so large, the unbroken fields would have been developed if ilie surplus had not been
so largo. A surplus is easy if you
use the right system, and Ihal is gel
all you can and don't, Ict go.
Mr. McBride Is entitled lo the

Children, look in those eyes, listen

The department of labor announces
ihat lhe working hours in the Trail
smelter have been reduced from 12 to
s hours per day. Feeders on thc
blast furnaces usrd never work more
I han an 8 hour shift, while all nfher
employees in the operative departments worked 11 hours on the day,
ami 13 hours on the night shift. A
man who worked a few 13 hour
shifts in a muzzle fo snvn bis lungs
from the poisonous fumes of the roast,

a relief this relaxation of the hours
will-mean, even if w 11 not earn quite
as big wages. The same scale has
been adopted in tbe Granby smeller
at   Grand Forks.
The Scientific American devotes
considerable space to the development
of electrical mining in California. It
points nut that many mines which
are situated at such altitudes or so
fur from transportation that fuel
for the use of the mine engines would
cost prohibitive prices, are now being successfully worked by electrical
power developed In the valleys from
the descending creeks. The power Is
cheaply wired back up thc mountains
again, pretty much as the power of
Bonnington Falls, near Nelson, is
conveyed In the Rossland mines.
British Columbia is blest with a
wonderful wealth of forest growth
which is capable of supplying steam
power for the mines for many a day
to come. Still one has but to note
the denudation of the forests hv such
a mine as the Nettie L., at Ferguson, to understand how very soon the
waters will have to be harnessed to
yield the power for the working of
the minerals of our hills.    In water

Mr, .l.iiniesiiii says the situation is
very satisfactory though the specillc
details of improveiiieiiLs ean iml he
illvulge*! until the plan is approved
liy lhe president.
Calgary is to benefit materially hy
llm new programme, however, as wiil
all lowns along the norlli and s'olilli
Hues. Foi instance, Ml. .laiiiie.sun
says, lhe trl-weckly passenger ou lhe

business that il will be maintained
through the winter ami will, in Hu*
spriiif*, probably he cliaptfe*! to

liouhlu passenger train .service each

On the south line the companv "ill

changed lo ii lust class passenger

coaoh and baggage cars, and will he
a very fair train. The ovonlng pas-
scngcr will also lie retained. 'Ihis
means a double passenger service
caeh way fiom Calgary in the spring,
Mr. .Jamieson explained that, the volume of traflic was most satisfactory
and thai the company was much
pleased with the expansion iliioiijrli-
otil Alberta and were preparing to
give Mn' lust possible service iu both
froighl and passenger.
"Ue will continue the track improvements of last year on Hie main

constructed lhe ten miles of line   to

"At Calgary there will be simie

for a particular purpose is easy
Because we have them for all
kinds of use. Naturally our
is far superior to that ol tbe horse
which has to cart eoal during the
week and carry bis owner lo a funeral
on Sunday. If Santa Claus saw our
horses he would pension off his old
reindeers, chop up liis old sleigh and
hire a rig from us. You should do the
same when you require the services of
a horse and carriage for any purpose.
Especially as our scale of charges
makes it really cheap Iransit.

ihat ihis is hy no means Hie case.
A scries uf vorifled soundings were
quite recently taken by Mr. McKay in

else, greatly surprised at the .shallowness uf the water. He expectw
about 400 ur atiti leet, hut Uio maximum depth was only 158 fool b

from Mr. McKay's uuu-s: "Soundings taken alung line of Sl. Kugem

were taken with a proper sounding
iruu every 254 foot on the line uf i
lead. In lhe course uf tlie soundings
no ruck was encountered, the bolloi
showing only clay and gravel. Tli
shallowness uf lhe lake points tu tli
fact that il is gradually being sillt
up by the Moyie river a ,.! um nun
her of streams falling into it, and it
may reasonably be Inferred thai
there is a very coiisldorablu depth uf

in the workings from any inrush ul

If what Paisoy Clark stales in ihe
