The People of South Eaat Kootenay Do Not
Favor tbe Move.
It is evident from the result of the
vote taken last Thursday on tbe prohi bi
tion plebescite, that the people of South
East Kootenay are nearly all of one
mind regarding tbe question. Through.
out the district the vote was very light,
and the majority returned at each polling place was overwhelmingly against
prohibition. At some of the precincts,
no votes were cast, and at all the others
the vote was very light The returns
were as follows:

Mr. Sprague, one of the best known
mining men iu South Kast Kootenay,
and one who has done as much as anv
man iu British Columbia for this part of
the Province, paid hi-* first visit lo Cranbrook last Saturday. A year ago Mr.
Sprague did yoeinan service in llie
States spreading the knowledge of this
district's richness, and thousands of iol*
lars have been invested here as a result
of his work.
Moyie Leader: The 70 ton ore bill at
lhe Lake Shore mine is finished and lhe
trestle for the car truck is well under
way. Work hi the tunnel will begin
about Monday. , . W, J. Tierney relumed from Craubrook Friday. He was
over to inspect the workings on the
Gertrude and Kmtiia claims, Which art-
located about five miles from lli.it place,
near the" Union Jack mine, and owned
by himself aud Charles Diamond, Work
to the extent of a 12-foot shaft has been
done and there Is uow a 6 foot ledge of
excellent looking quartz in sight.
Jerry Murphy brought a fine sample of
ore iuto THE HERALD office this Sjgek,
It is from the Copperine, one of IheTwin
claims owned by j. R. Harvey and himself on Perry creek, about four miles
from old town, and eight or nine miles
from Craubrook. It is from the surface
and shows heavy streaks of copper,
while au assay gives over $10 in total
value. Jerry says that they have got a
large body and that it grows better us
depth is secured. They will develop*
tbe property next spring, and f_el confident that they have a good thing.
Mr. Kean, who is extensively interested
on Tracy creek, drove in Saturday, com-
ine dlrert to Cranbrook. Speaking of
that district, Mr. Kean said: "Cranbrook would do well to look for tbe business In that section. The government
road from Bummers Flat to Tracer has
just been completed at a cost of ttioo, A
road could be easily secured from Cranbrook to Tracy. Going from Crrnbrook
to the Mission the road is uow all ready
for travel. From the Mission it Is a
level stretch down the St. Marys to hummers Flat, and there you strike lhe new
road to Tracy. This route is eight miles
nearer than around by the way of l-'ort
Steele, aud no hills except the one at the
Misslou. There will be plenty of business from there this winter and next
summer from the Estella mine, also
camps on Lewis creek, Wasa, Luroy and
Speculators, Several of these will be
shippers, ond it would pay Cranbrook lo
have tbe ferry put in again for use ou
this road."

The North Star mine, owned by D. D.
Mann, has been a constant shipper for

road bed has been commenced at the
new shaft, connecting with the main

the railway to the mine is completed.
Wlonlpci Letter.
Editor Thk Hkkat.d: The eyes of all
having money or enterprise to go on
with are turned to the rich country opened up by the building ofthe Crows Nest
Pass Railway line, and tbe towns which
are springing up along its route.
Amongst the latter Cranbrook comes
in for a great share, Fernie making a
goad second. In spite of all that has
been said and done in regard to dissem-
enating of the facts regarding these go
ahead towns, the reports that are brought
back by visitors are at times conflicting
as to their respective sizes,

Mr. Haney said lie would have the rails
laid to Kootenay lake by the first part of
October, railroad men scouted the Idea,
To build a ro id through a mountainous
