The Cranbrook Liberals Approve ot liis
Actloa St Vancouver.
A meeting of the Cranbrook Liberals
wai held in Leask ball on Wednesday
night, February 36, to receive lhe report
of R. E. Beattie, delegate to the British
Columbia Liberal convention held in
Vancouver on February 6. Mr. Beattie
who was one of ttie delegates of South
East Kootenay who attended all tha
meetings of the convention, whs certainly in a position to give a thorough and
accurate report of nil the proceedings.
He most emphatically denied the repotts
circulated that tbe convention bad been
packed by tbe Martin contingent, and
this was proven by tbe vote taken on
questions subsequent to the retirement
of the anti-Martin delegates. Mr. Beat-
tie fuilher stated tbat tbe delegates who
are now protesting so strongly against
the proceedings at that convention have
nobody to blame but themselves 09 they
withdrew from the proceedings shortly
alter the convention went into session,
and showed by men action in leaving
the convention at such 11 critical moment a want of interest and loyalty to the
Liberal party. Mr, Beattie gave an
eiact account of all tbe proceedings of
the convention, and said that be was
open to challenge on any statement he
had made, After giving a clear view ot
his actions, Mr. Beattie contended thut
Ihe Liberal party of llritish Columbia
should abide by tbe decision of that convention, and requested tbe opinion of
Ibis association in the matter.
Dr. Kiug, A. Moffat and W. F. Gurd
eipressed their approval of Mr Beat tie's
actions, and on motion of A. Moffat,
seconded by W. P. Gurd, u,« following
resolution was adopted:
That wc, lhe members of the Cranbrook Liberal association fully approve
of and endorse Mr. Beattie's action at
the Vancouver convention, nud that h
vote of" thanks be tendered him for tbe
very creditable manner lo which be acquitted himself us our delegate,

Dear Sir: On behalf of the members
of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, tbe Brotherhood of Locomotive
Fireman, the Order of Railroad Conductors, the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and ihe Order of Railroad Telegraphers employed un the Crows Nest
division ol the C. P. R., we desire to ex
lend to you our felicitations oh the well
merited promotion which has come to
yuu. Nothing could exceed onr pleasure
at this expression of llle company's con
lideiice in your ability, were it not for
the fact that it means yuur tiansfer to
another territory.
The twelve mouths yuu spent in
charge of tbis division were marked by
many impioveuients in the service which
contributed to the safely and expedition
in tbe handling of traffic, ami thereby
made our lot easier. The reputation
which preceded you to tbis division was
tbat of being a strict disciplinarian, and
this we found to be a fact, bin on the
other baud we found that in all your decisions you endeavored to be just and
fair; and while jealously guarding the
company's interest, you always displayed a clear appreciation otthe diflicul
ties under which we sometimes labored.
It is our earnest hope that yourself

abundant success, and tbat tbe present

There have been countless rumors regarding Marysvllle, and the smelter,
and many of them have originated In
the minds of vicious persons wbo
seemed possessed with a desire to Inure communities as well as Individuals,
The Tribune desires to state right
here that there Is no doubt about tbe
Sullivan company building a smelter;
that it will be built In Marysvllle; that
thousands of dollars have already been
expended on construction; that there I*,
no foundation in the statement or rumor
that the plant will be moved to Elko or
any other place; that Q. W. Hull, the
general manager, Is pushing forward
.-.hi* work .ih fast as men and money will
do it; and that the man or men, who
circulated the stories that Mr. Hull was
entertaining overtures from any source
for a change In the location, lu behalf
of the company or with any Idea of
personal gain, Is guilty of vicious and
malicious falsifying. Tbe Tribune
would add tbat Mr. Hull, representing
large capital Invested in these works,
is anxious tn see construction proceed
without delay, and in his management
1 s doing what he can to conserve the
best Interests of the people he represents. In carrying out a project of the
magnitude of a smelter, too often there
are those wbo would do all In their
power to create discord aud diautfsfac-
Hun. The time has arrived for a cessation of that kind of work, Spring is
uow here, and with the mild
weather work will be pushed,
tbe force will       be       Increas
ed, and within two months, tbe great
frames of tbe buildings will be enclosed ;
the roasters will be completed, and
machinery will be going Into place;
what baa been developing during tbe
cold season, will materialize as a
smelter, in fact as well as name, nearly
ready for handling tbe great body of
ore ia the Sullivan mine waiting treatment.
Moyie Leader: Moyie has certainly a
great mine in tbe Aurora, and if the
price of lead continues to advance as at
present it will not be long until this
property will be shipping ore and paving
dividends, It is estimated that already
some $6000 have heeti expended on development work on this group which
consists of five full claims. The No. I
tunnel is now in 325 feet. From this
there are two cress ruts to the west, one
40 feet In length aud tbe other 35 feel in
length. These are running at an angle
from the main tunuel aud on separate
veins, Then there is a shaft down 40
feet, This is on the vein and lhe ore
has averaged from 18 inches lo four feet
iu width all the way dowti.
The Aurora is directly across tbe lake
and on tbe same lead as tbe St. Eugene.
It has more work done aud looks better
today than did the Lake Shore group at
the time it was purchased by the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate. Tbe Aurora is owned by Tbos. Ruder, O. J. Johnson andCapt. J. B Sanborn,
Fred Ron made a big shipment of fur

Wild Horse Placers.
Fort Steele Prospector: During tbe
past year, especially tbe winter months,
there was a great deal of prospecting go
ing ou among lhe placers on Wild Horse.
The work done has demonstrated the
permanency and depth of the immense
gravel deposits, and proved tbat the yellow metal abounds in paying quantities.
The interesting feature is that not less
than six companies will work on the
creek as soon as the season opens.
Dave Griffith, wbo came down from
Wild Horse on Thursday, reports that
good pay gravel has been struck iu the
tuunel now being run to strike bed rock
in the deep diggings on the creek. He
brought down a beautiful specimen of
placer gold obtained in the face of the
tunnel. E J. Caun has also a quantity
of fine gold obtained from panning.

Slocan Drill: Things are In lovely

be holding down the premiership, with
Joe Martin's assistance, and has a following of IV C K I'ooley has been put
lu the speaker's chair, Mr, Booth being
too 111 to attend, Richard McBride la
leader of tbe new opposition of 111 mem
beis, with H F.Green, Slocau's representative, as a whip, Martin still
claims to be leader of the opposition
though voting with the government. He
and McBride had a scrap Monday for
possession of ihe cbalr designating that
position. Smith Curtis joined in the
fray, and a number of tbe other legislators got tangled up In the scrap creating a most disgraceful scene. Some
enterprising theatrical manager should
corrall the B.C. legislature and exhibit
the whole works In a dime museum.
There would be a fortune In tbe scheme.
Rev, Dowering Declines.
The official board of the Methodist
church held its quarterly meeting last

Bold la Smelter Smoke.
Omaha Correspondence of New York
World: Two years ago, while workmen were making repairs to the roof
of a building in the Omaha plant of the
American Smelting and Ketiniog company, they were amn/*d to find the
shingles and boards covered with atoms
of metal. One of the boards was taken
to tbe assayer, wbo burned It, retorted
the ashes and imparted ma startling In
formation tbat the metal was composed
of gold, silver, lead and copper.
Other boards were burned wltb like
results, and tbe mystery grew more
preplexlng. Finally some one standing
on the roof of the building had occasion
to brush from bis coat sleeves Bakes of
soot which were dropping from the
great, rolling clouds ot smoke and gas
emerging from tbe giant stacks near by.
Sbeets of common cheesecloth, cut to
lit the Interior of tbe stacks, were prepared. Through the centre of tbe sbeets
were cut holes large enough to allow ihe
necessary free draught. The sheets were
fastened at various heights lu tbe stacks
and allowed to remain In position for
several weeks. When removed and
subjected to treatment tbe chemist produced gold, sliver, copper and lead worth
hundreds of dollars.
More cheesecloth catchers were Inserted In the smokestacks, a few feet
apart, one above the other, from the
base to the crown; a semicircular steel
bouse was built, extending from the
furnaces to the base of tbe stacks-, a
blower was placed In position to cool
and force the smoke and gas through the
tteel house and up tne Hues, lo Its
passage the smoke deposited In the steel
house hundreds of pounds of grime,
which was allowed to gather and pack
for six months. That of the grime
which managed to travel through tbe
circular house and reach tbe Hues was
caught by the cheesecloth, very small
portion, practically, escaping to tbe
When the steel house became filled
with packed soot—highly Inflammable—
the mass was touched off with a common match and allowed to burn for
several days, after which It was found
that there still remained In tbe enclosure many tons of a peculiar dead-look*
log cinder, bard and worthless appearance. This cinder was run through
tbe furnaces, receiving treatment lu
the same manner as tbe original ores,
and readily yielded its precious wealth.
During January the Omaha plant
gathered a six months' "smokehouse
anl cheesecloth harvest," receiving K00
tons of cinders, which yielded more
than $33 000.
Fifty thousand dollars per year scattered over Omaha in smoke! That's
what it imounted to In twenty years.

Canterbury Outcrop : The question of
patronizing home merchants instead of
sending money away Is a live matter,
not only locally but provlncially, and lu
fact Is a burning question throughout
the whole Dominion. It seems to be a
sort of mania with many people lu
this country we send to the coast to
ftt goods cheaper; at the ceast tbey
send to the east; In the east they send
to the cities; In the cities they send to
old world; and so It goes.
Then In reiurn the people jf rach
place wonder why It tn that money Is so
scarce.    How could h he otherwise*

could bu learned of lit in there. I
spent two ilnys wandering nbout in ihe
hope of catching sight of him, uud a
private detective In my employ spent
three more, but we gut no trace. Then,
fearing thut he bnd made nway with
himself nud by the advice of tbo notary, 1 went to the police. To my great
amuzeiiieiit, no sooner hud my story
been related tbnn I wiih put under ur*

Indignantly protested, ihu Inspector answered :
"He wus yotir fl'lond.    You nre tbo

"Hut have you counted on the old

u.e case. "He'll be after you In two
h.ims. nud he has the legal right to
Idke his daughter oft' the steamer and
tint you behind the bars. I should say
lie would be a bad mnn to fool with."
"Listen, senor," quietly replied the

At the end of another half hour we

mid escape from ttie house and grounds

hours after dark one evening a boat
brought the pair of lovers aboard. Ten
minutes Inter we were under way. A
fairer girl 1 never looked upon, and she
was na brave as she wns fair.
We left port with a fair wind and
carried it all night as w« headed out
into the Atlantic, and the yacht slipped
along as If driven hy steam. We hud
got away so quietly tbat I did not look
for pursuit, but daylight bad scarcely
broken when wc found ■ steamer In
our wake. As 1 afterward ascertained,
the girl had been missed early in the
night, tho sailing of the yacht discovered, and while one steamer was headed for the Canaries a second took the
course for l'.io and was soon overhauling us.
At noon the steamer came up with
us. The brother was aboard of her,
while the father had taken tbe other

district lumber, lathes and shingles cl
all kinds are manufactured lu huge
quantities and are shipped to the Northwest Territories and Manitoba. Within
lhe bounds of the district we have also
tucb domestic industrious as brewera
and soda water factories. The greal
coming industry however of the dfstrict
is the smelting of ores. As everyone
knows at our own town of Marysvllle a
ilrst class up-to-date Btnelter ii being
erected by the Sullivan Group Mining
company. First with ttie idea of smel"-
ing iheir own ore from the Sullivan
mine and then lu the near ftuure to
connect custom (.melting with their bust-
ness. Further ihis company will erect
a lead rertnery.the first In the Dominion
of Canada, and later ou while lead aud
lead pipe works.
I'.0111 all of the above may be seen
tnat South Kast Kootenay is a progressive district, one of which any man
may be proud of being a citizen and
one iu which any man with energy aud
slick at-it-ivuess should succeed.
There are many nourishing towns In
the district, all of them growing, but at
lhc present moment none of them are
so much "In the public eye" as Marysvllle the Smelter City. The reason for
ihis Is that people who are seeking a
place in which to Invest then money
look for a pay roll town lu which to do
so. Marysvllle Is the coming pay roll
towu of ISast Kootenay.
