A meeting ol the directors of ibis company was held tin Monday night at McVittie St Hutchison's ollice and the

A contract has been entered inlo with

the many shareholders iu Ciaubrook.

The Cblckamun Stone.
Charles Theis, one of tbe owners of
the Chickamun Stone mine on Bull
river, bas this to say regarding the properly to the Spokesman Review ou hia
return to Spokane: "While up there
this lime I sampled one oie dump on
which are about four cars of ore assoi ted
ready for shipping, A thorough sampling
showed $45 33 copper, fa 90 silver aud
20 cents gold, a total value of (55 42 per
ton. On another dump of a new shaft
just started for au air connection we
have obtained i-S.'i per cent or fott 45
copper, 817.70 silver and 62 cents gold, a
total value of $86.77 l-er Ion. I think it
likely tbnt tbe Chickamun Stone will
ship the first trainload of ore out of Hast
Kootenay. We expect to ship out eight
carloads about the time we get tbe road
completed. We have obtained a freight
and treatment rate of {10 per ton at the
Trail smelter, a rate which will enable
us to ship profitably and which is calculated to encourage development. We
expect to sink on tbe mine to a depth of
600 or 7C0 feet. We have stalled a winze
from thc tunnel level and a shaft is being sunk on the vein at a point toward
which the drift is driving. When we
have proved thc mine as good at depth
as it shows on the surface, we shall go
down tbe hill lo the level of Bull river
and drive in a working tunnel which
will open the veiu to a depth of 600 feet
in running 800. Work will be put-bed
aggressively on tbe mine."
Mr. Theis says tbat other properties
are working on Bull river, and thc camp
Is a most promising one. A feature of
that part of the country Is the strength
of the veins. He says that tbe one on
the Chickamun Stone bas been clearly
traced for 2985 feet, and that two claims
are located on tbe lode line with the
center end stakes of each claim driven
into ore. 	
Moyie Mines.
Moyie Leader: A. P. Lender*-: arrived
here from Nelson this week to take
charge of putting in tbe tramway for the
St. Eugene between the mine and the
concentrator on the shore of the lake
near the C. P, R. track. The tram will
be about 3100 feet in length and will be
of tbe double rope pattern, the latest
now in use. The tram will be fitted with
twenty buckets for tbe present and it
will have a capacity of fifteen tons per
hour. Nine derricks will be required lo
bold these cables up. Most of the
foundations for these derricks are built,
and carpenters are now working on tbe
terminal near the ore bin at the mine.
As soon as the ore bins aud terminal at
tbe mill are completed the cable will be
strung and tbe tramway wilt be ready
for operation.
Work is being systematically pushed
In every department of the Lake Shore
mine, and every indication shows that
J, C. Drewry and his company mean

lhe bricklayers are now building the
furnace. The three shifts working in
the new tunnel arc making good progress. The new two-story office is about
completed ami received its last coat of
paint Ibis week.
Palmer Mouilala.
Work is progressing rapidly on the
tunnel on Ihe Belleview group, under
(he supervision of John Hamilton. Two
shafts were started from the surface, but
water interfered with progress to such
an extent tbat tbey were abandoned and
a tunnel run to cut tbe ledge at a depth
of about ico feet. Tbe result will be
known in a lew days, the tunnel being
within about fifteen feet of the expected
location of the vein on Saturday last
when the property was inspected by A.
W. McViltie, who reports that it is the
cleanest piece of tunnel work In the dis*
trlct. The property lies on the east side
of Palmer mountain ou the edge of a
deep gulch through which runs the
north branch of Palmer Bar creek, and
the surroundings are wild and picturesque enough to almost euable one to
forget the black flies.

Minion Notes.
Robert Cox has returned from bis
claims on the Upper Wild Horse, the
Empress and Bowery Girl. He has two
men at work there and is feeling very
good over the appearance of lhe property,
Lund & Breckenrldge, who have a
contract on the North Star branch, have
taken a working bond on the Copper
Belle and will begin work at once. A
tunnel is already in n distance of twenty
feet, and it is thoughl that about fori)
feel more will strike the ledge, when
there is every reason to expect a fine
body of ore.
Work on tbe Pay Roll is going on
steadily. Tbe inclined shaft is now
down over twenty five feet from the bottom of the drift and shows a ledge of
over five feet iu width, The horse" of
country rock i.s giving place to quart/
which is coming in stronger for every
foot gained in depth. There are very
clean walls with gauge of talc which
cautimies to carry values high enough to
allow of shipping at a profit. There are
about ten inches of this ore on the hanging wall, and it is being carefully saved,
the owners intending to rawhide it lo
lhe railway next winter. An encouraging feature of this property is the group
of small ledges running at tight angles
to tlie main ledge and assaying very
high averages in gold aud tellurium. Il
is reasonable to suppose ihat at the
junction wilh the large ledge similarly
high gold values will be found, and
when lhe development work reaches
that portion of the ledge we may see a
boom tn Pay Roll stock thai will cause a
flurry iu mining circles.

Some one has said lhat The Herald, in
stating that Craubrook iu the supply

makes the claim but gives no reasou
for it.
The Herald is obliging, if anything, at
all limes, and tbe task imposed by our
ethic is such an easy one that it gives
Tbe Herald special delight to reply to
the request.
First, Nature has made the site of
Cranbrook the natural center of this
vast district of South Kust Kootenay.
not only so far as distances are concerned, but also by the conformation of
the hills and valleys, ll is impossible
to travel from one portion of tbe district
to another, either by rail, wagon or
trail, without coming to Craubrook, aud
to reach auy and all portions of the district there is no place so admirably situated for tliii purpose as is Cranbrook.
Take us un illustration of this fact lhe
distances and direction of tbe surrounding towns. Ihose reached hy rail to the
east are Wardner, 22 miles; Cranston, 34
miles; lilko, 44 miles; Coal Creek, 60
miles; Pernio. 63 miles; to the west,

will be made more emphatic ou the cunt

give lhe Perry creek, St. Marys and
North Star districts direct rail connection with Cranbrook.
A concensus of opinion of the people
today who are familiar with the coudi
tioua would show without a doubt that
Cranbrook is the recognized commercial
center, and the trend of trade the past
few months has established this point
beyond any further question. The
wholesaling of the district is done at
Craubrook. This towu supplies the
lumber, the mouldings, the sash and
door fittings for Ihe district, except iu
one or two cases where there are .small
sawmills lhat furnish plain lumber ouly.
Tbe Port Steele Mercantile company
aud Sherlock it Bremner do a large und
increasing wholesale busiuess iu groceries and fted throughout the district.
M. Mclnnes it 'Co. ship thousands of
dollars worth of meat supplies out every
month, Maggs St Hughes are doing a
big busiuess in carpets uml furniture in
all the surrounding towns (.. H, Mine:
the hardware dealer, is increasing his
force to meet the demand for business
coming from various points iu the dis
trict. Aud so on in all classes or trade,
This condition is but the natural result
of location. livery town iu the district
cau secure communication quicker with
Cranbrook than with any other one town
in the district, which makes this town
the logical center for all lines of trade.
Por that reason Cranbrook merchants
carry large aud varied stocks, which
simply adds to the place as au attractive
trade center,
linjoying such advantages it is not
strange that Cranbrook is growing in
Importance and population, Tht
growth of every other town in the dis
trict materially assists in increasing
Cranbrook's growth, and it is foolish to
assume that the people of Cranbrook entertain eveu to the slightest degree, at
antagonistic feeling toward their neigh
boring towns. Ou the contrary, oue cun
hear any day iu Cranbrook, confidence
expressed in the growth of all thc towns
in the district, because the people uf
Cranbrook know that the resources ol
South Kast Kootenay are of such a character that wide spread prosperity must
follow tbeir development. There is no
room iu this district, nor is tbere any
occasion for petty jealousies. Because
Cranbrook te so situated as to enjoy lhe
benefits accruing to a place that is the
natural commercial and miuing center
it does not follow that the natural te-
sources tributary to tbe other towns in
the district will not cause tbem to forge
ahead and enjoy the prosperity that such
conditions will produce.
The development of lhe mineral resources immediately tributary to Craubrook is furnishing lhe most satisfactory
kind of evidence that Cranbrook is lap-
idly becoming the mining center of the
district. Conditions nre improving
weekly, and before Ihe close of this sea
son, a great change will huve taken
place In this respect. Already Craubrook is the supply point of 11 laige territory that is being prospected and developed, and the merchants of this town
are enjoying Ihe benefits of a trade
greatly increased in consequence.
Another, factor thai is largely contributing to tbe growth aud prosperity of
Cranbrook, is her increasing importance
as a railway center. Already the C, P
R. has located machine shops, carpenter
shops, round house and extensive yards
here, and have at work a large force ot
men. Tbe further fact tbat Cranbrook
is the divis'onal point ofthe Crows Nest
line greatly increases the resident payroll. And now that Ihe North Si-
branch is building from this town, the
railway business in Craubrook will be
Increased many fold, and this point will
he made headquatters for all C. P. R.
busineBsIn Soulh Bast Kootenay. That
means a constant payroll of such propor
tions as to be a permanent and direct
benefit to every resident and property
owner in Cranbrook.
Yes, Cranbrook seems to be all tight.
Spokane this year has raised twice as
much money for its October exposition,
and is determined to have twice as fine
a show in every particular. Besides
fruit and   agricultural   exhibits, which
have been had al former fruit fairs, this
year there will be added a stock show, a
lairy show, a poultry show, a ruining
department aud a miuing machinery de
partment. Bach one of these departments will be as fine a show in its line
as ever was seen on the Pacific const.
Thousands of dollars are ottered in prizes
and premiums. In the mineral department there will be gold, silver and
bronze medals, and diplomas awarded,
Iu all tbe Other departments tbere will
be the most liberal cash prizes given.
The Prospector objects to The Herald
saying that Cranbrook "seems" all right,
laiming lhat the word "seems" imitates existing doubt. As Brother Keeler
does not seem to be familiar wilh the
vcrnuculur, The Herald takes pleasure iu assuring him that Craubrook
IS all right, as is being emphatically attested by tbe growth in the town, the
constant increase in business and the
confidence of everyone in lhe future of
the recognized supply center of South
East  Kootenay,
The editor of the Rossland Miner is
much perturbed over the change of lhe
sentence of Pasto, tbe Italian who was
convicted of murdering a man in Cranbrook, from hanging to life imprisonment. The Miner Bhould remember that
the evidence was circumstantial to a
considerable exteut, and tlmt the law
has been upheld by imprisonment for
life. It whs not a "bad man" murder,
but simply the unfortunate result of a
drunken carousal.
More money is being expended ibis
ye-r in thc way of mining development
in this district than ever before. And
what Is more, the work is bringing forth
the most satisfactory results. South
Uast Kootenay is looked upon today us
one ofthe most promising mining field*
in British Columbia, and it will fulfill
every promise.
The Greenwood Miner, under the
management of R. ti. Gosnell, has
jumped to the front as one of British
Columbia's best weekly newspapers. It
is a paper tbat shows character, and will
prove a potential factor in the upbuilding of Greenwood, a fact that the people
of lhat towu should appreciate.
The Trail News makes the statement
that every resident of Trail should Bub-
scribe for lhat paper. The News is
right, aud The Herald would add that
every resident of Cranbrook should subscribe for The Herald. All are readers
of the paper, but many are not subscribers.
lvach town in the district of Soulh
Kast Kootenay will be a much better
ami a much larger town two or three
years hence than it is now. Soulh Gust
Kootenay has unlimited possibilities,
and each town will receive benefits as
the resources are developed.
The republican judges of the United
States are issuing edicts against labor organizations, while the republican Unittd
Stales attorney general declares that

familiarly known as trusts.
Many meu whu were fawning about
Joe Martin a few weeks ugo, are uow
pushing to the front to give him a parting kick, and some of these very men
are the ones who secured their positions
through Martin's influence. Such is the
ingratitude of politics.
The benefits of the North Star branch
arc already being felt in Craubrook, It
makes this town lhe commercial center
beyond any further question, and it only
needed the building of this road to convince a few doubting Thomases that

Capital and Labor should work harmoniously, but Capital should not labor

The list of attraction!* thn* year is a
very 1( ng one, and in every case it is
now aud different from last year.
Among these attractions may be uotcd
tlu Virginia State Colored Band. Tbis
iH a negro organisation which not only
comprizes a Hue brass band of twenty-
live pieces, Imt also produces a number
of special features i-itch as cake walks,
plantation scenes, coon daucea, pii-nu-
uiny BtiugB, etc. Tbis aggregation is
highly spoken ol wherever it has appeared its ii great mirth provoker.
Cottons Donkey Circus is said to he
ouo of the finest tilings in its line and
something entirely new. The comical
and abHtird situations which cau be produced by (he scientific use of several
donkeys, men and boys art? more than
cau be imagined. This feature proves
u great relaxatrn for old uud young.
Tlidre will be the Imperial troupe of
Japanese jugglers. Tbis troupe came
over to attend the Omaha Exposition,
and tbey are the princes of the urt of
balancing and jueglin'g which has been
cultivated to snob n high pilch by tbis
clover nation. Diana, Qneou of (he
Light, is another nt traction. This is
u serpentine danap similar to that
which made Loic Fuller funious.
This year Prof. Herbert will appear
with oua of the greatest troupes ot
trained dogs ever seen. This troupe
includes Dink, tho famous diving dog,
which dives from a fifty foot ladder
iuto a tank of water.
Prof, Hand will, as in 'previous fairs,
provide tlio fireworks. These this
yoar will be largely of tlie nature of
tbe lntest mechanical devices as fiery
serpents, set. pieces, stars, and a-variety ot beautiful rockets, shooting stars,
showers, golden luid, wheat sheaves,
etc., tbut have made this great pyrotechnic artist famous nil over the Dominion.
Tho last to be named in this list is
u balloon ascension aud parachute drop
under somewhat novel conditions. A
female aeronaut will go up in a bai*
lo:u seated ou nu ordinary bicycle, and
when many hundred teet in the air she
will release the parachute and drop to
tho ground and ride back tu the place
of ascent ou her bicycle.
