A Vancouver Wholesale Merchant is Well
Pleased With Cranbrook.
John oppenheimer, of Vanctuver,
presiilent of Hit* wholesale grocery firm
of oppenheimer Brothers of Vancouver,
Inta been in South Bait Kootenny the
past two weeks looking over tlie country. Mr. Oppenheimer visited this country 30 years an", coming lu by the old
trails from   tlie  south  nt the time the
fume  of  lhe   Willi   Horse  placer mines
luul extended throughout the civilised
world.    Comparing the two   trip-   Mr.
Oppenheimer said that he fouud a vast
difference  in the country on this trip,
and every indication of a rich and prosperous section. Me expressed lhe opinion that wuii the tail transportation the
development uf this country would In*
rapid and Unit the results would attract
tlie attention of thu mining world.
'The people of Vancouver i.re'Iooking
toward Must Kootenay with anxious
eyes, ns they consider it their legitimate
field for trade," said the gentleman,
"and will exert themselves lo secure it.
If the coast cities can s.cure the rates
they arc entitled to, and 1 have no doubt
that they will, Vancouver will be in a
position to deal with the people ofthe
Kootenai) s in a most profitable manner."
"What do you think of Cranbrook?"
"You hnve here a magnificent town-
site, one of the finest I ever saw in a
mountainous country. And it is most
admirably located for becoming a pros*
perous city."
Mr.  Oppenheimer  left on  the train
Monday night for the west.
A Loaf of Cake Found Deep In the Qround
a Few Dsys Ago.
One day last week while the men engaged in digging the cellar for Thos,
Leask's new building ou Baker street
they mnde a find when down between
three or four feet that was a surprise.
Resting safely in the solid ground was a
loaf of cake. It wus crusted over with
the earth and was in a most excellent
state of preservation. How it came to
be buried so deep in the ground is a
mystery, but it is generally believed that
some time in the past a party may have
camped on the ground, as there is a
spring near at hand. A small hole may
have been dug for baking purposes and
this loaf accidently dropped in it and
was left. As years rolled by the place
was covered up more deeply, only to be
brought to light by the march of civilization.      	
It is Moving Along Toward Prosperity With
the Country.
The new town of Elko seems to be
forging along to prosperity these days.
The railroad company has built a fine
station aud double section house there,
and one of the largest water tanks along
the line. The water is brought a mile
front the mountains in a two inch pipe,
giying a supply nud n fall lhat will supply not only the needs of the company
but the town as well. Lots have beeu
purchased for a large hotel that will be
constructed at once. The customs office
at Crows Nest Landing will be removed
there, a postoffice is lo be established at
once and a stage route to Tobacco Plains
with three mails a week. A school has
been applied for and a teacher will be
ready within a short time. Several industries nre negotiating with the town-
iitc company for lhe use of wnter power.
How Fire Risks anil  Insurance May Be Re.
iluced In Cranbrook.
Editor of Thb Hbram>; Hear Sir:—
The matter of fire insurance rates is one
of Interest just now when onr town is in
a state of rapid growth and I lake the
liberty (with your kind leave) to give a
lew hints on how rales may be kept
down. The cause of high rates is the
fact thai wooden buildings bulli adjoining nr close to each other nre in greater
danger of being burned than buildings
lhat are isolated or nearly so.
Isolation, iu insurance parlance, means
that a building must be 100 feet from ibe
next or (hat a brick or stone wall divides
it from the next.
Now it seems to ine that on our principle streets it would be a paying investment and al the same time n great precaution for the owners of buildings to
erect a brick wall here and there and
thus jlividc up blocks or rows of frame
buildings, ns thus they would not only
materially reduce their insurance premiums but also greatly lower the risk of
Thnnkiug vou fur the use of your
space, I nm, air, yours respectfully,
JniiN Hutchison.
Death of Mrs. J. C. Brown.
I. ied — Friday, October   7,   1S98,
Anna I.ockhurt Drown, of pneumonia.
The news ofthe death of Mrs. Brown
was a shock to the community. Although it was known that she was seriously Ul with pneumonia, yet no doubt
wis entertained as to her final recovery.
But the disease secured too firm a hold,
aud her naturally strong constitution
succumbed. After four days of suffering
death came to ber relief. Her husband
hardly left her bedside, and for three
days and nights before the end, never
closed his eyes iu sleep. Saturday after*
uoou the remains were laid to rest in the
small cemetery ou the east side, short
services being held at the grave by Rev.
Dall, ofthe Presbyterian church.
The deceased wus born in Edinburg,
Scotland, 35 years ago, and iu 1891 came
to Canada witb Lady Adelade Cochran,
and lived at Midford, In 189.1 she was
united iu marriage to Mr. J. C. Drown,
at Winnipeg. The family had lived in
Cranbrook only a short lime.
J. W. Arthur Has Words of Praise for
South East Kootenay.
1   MINES AND MTl-flNG.    1
Indications Tend to Show Much
Activity This Winter—Float
From Different Ranges.
J. W. Arthur has relumed from East
Kootenny where he has spent the summer looking after bis extensive mining
interests, says lhe Spokesman-Review.
This is bis second season iu the Fort
Steele country. lie says it will not be
his last. He is better pleased than ever
with tbe eastern division of tbe Koote'
nays and believes it is destined to a
greater future as a mineral producer
than the western portion.
''Last year was location time in the
Port Steele district," said Mr. Arthur
yesterday, "This year has been devoted to assessment work and now tbe district is at the point where steady development is about to begin ou many properties.
'The railroad is going to he a big
thing for the country. The effect of it
is being shown already in the greatly iu-
xeased activity in tbe mining camps in
all parts of the district.
One of the biggest mining enterprises in Kast Kootenay is that under control of Mr. Telly, who is crown granting
32 claims 011 St. Marys about midway between tbe North Star and St. Eugene
mines. He represents large English
apttal. The properties are in several
grsups and the ore is copper-gold, Tbe
assays are said to run as high as 22'i
per cent copper and several dollars in
Trscey and Perry.
Tracey creek is one of the livliest in
lhe district this year and there is considerable development work going on. For
free gold ores Perry creek beats them
all. There is one lead of free milling ore
on Perry creek that I have traced myself
for tt miles. At least two of tbe proper-
lies on the belt have been developed to
a depth of ioo feet and there has been no
indication of the ore turning base. Tbe
Sour Dough group, one nf the most
promising ou the belt, is reported bonded to the British American corporation.
It comprises six claims. The price is
said to be bigh but I did not learn the
exact figures. Ores on that lead assay
$40, J.50 and as high as $75 at a depth of
100 feet. I panned rock on eight claims
011J the lead recently and got colors
every time and some of them were excellent showings.
All through the district the summer's
work is showing excellent results, I
have yet to hear of any creek or camp
here the development undertaken this
summer has not been abundantly satis-
ictory to the parties interested. Some
assessment work has been done that was
not profitable but it was only because it
lid uot go far enough or deep enough to
show what the claims contained. It has
been a busy summer and the way has
beeu nicely paved for capital to come in.
Capital Coming In.
Capital is already seeking invest
ment iu the mines of East Kootenay. I
closed a deal a few days since for the
sale of the Minnie M and Tiger group on
Tracey creek mountain. It is a concentrating proposition, lead aud gold bearing. The price was a good one for undeveloped claims but I do not care to
name the figure. The Port Steele Development company, limited, was tbe pur-
baser. Tbe same company has bonded
and bought tbe Moyie aud Queen ofthe
Hills properties and owns the townsite of
Kimberly, one of the coming camps of
the East Kootenays. Kimberly is about
midway between the Sullivan group and
the North Star mines. Iu such a neighborhood it is bound to grow.
'The Halls Mines, limited, of Nelson,
is operating five promising properties in
East Kootenay. They are copper propositions. One is on Sand creek, another
011 Wasa, another on Doublet* aud two
on Horseshoe gulch. The compauy is
still looking for more claims. Representatives of two or three other big syndicates have been in the district but I
did rot learn their names nor tbe parties
they represent, but I know that they
have tied up a number of the leading
properties of the various camps.
The Sullivan Strike.
1 One of the biggest things I have seen
iu the country is the strike on the Sullivan group. I was at tbe mine soon after
the big 30 foot ore body was laid bare. I
liked it so well mat I wrote to my friends
in Spokane to buy all the Sullivan group
stock they could get hold of. The ore
looked to me as it It '-would average
about $40 with some of it running considerable ligher. Willi the shipping
facilities tbat are coming such an ore
body is n bonanza. The Sullivan group
is a mine beyond a doubt.
"Five miles of the Perry creek bottom
has been lately leased for placer mining.
The London Development compauy,
successors to the old Nip & Tuck company of Wild Horse creek, has taken the
lease. It is a big hydraulic proposition,
With a bed rock flume properly placed
the returns should be large."
Henry Kundret. Jay Usher itiid L. C.
Hoffman were in town Sunday on their
way to Fort Steele. They hnd been
over the Perry creek district and Sfeel
confident that there te a great future in
store for tbat section.
Oust Theis, one of the owners of many
good properties on Perry creek, was in
town Tuesday. He reports everything
in good shape in that district and says
tbat several properties will be develop,
d this winter.
II. ti. Foster, of Kamloops, was in
towu tbe first of tbe week on his way to
Moyie to look after bis interests in the
Moyie mine. He will put a force of men
ut work on Ibis property aud continue
development throughout the winter season.
Tiie Watson claim near Elko is giving
promise of beiug a great mine. "Daldy"
Smith is in charge of the development
work for the B. & A. wbo have it under
bond, and has two shifts of men on.
Tbe property is showing a good body of
ore, carrying copper, gold and silver values, giving a total of from $60 to -f km.
Tbey have a tunnel in about 140 feet,
and every shot is showing up better.
O. Youngchrist arrived from Windermere Saturday and will make Cranbrook his home this winter. Hebrought
with him some attractive looking specimens of copper quartz from some of his
claims near Windermere. Speaking of
South East Kootenay be said that he
looked to see a great mining boom in
this territory that would result in a vast
amount of valuable work being done.
Thk Hhkai.d is in receipt of a prospectus sent out by Col. II. M. Went-
worth, formerly of Tine Hi-kai.d staff,
but now of Spokane, giving tbe conditions of the "Storm King," ti copper-
gold claim in Squaw Creek camp in
Washington. The colonel adopts a novel course iu presenting his prospectus by
.making oath to everything be sets forth.
He evidently has a good thing aud it is
to be hoped that he may lealize upon it.
Mr. McDonald, who has control of the
Empire claim on Sand creek, known as
tbe Major Steele property, was in towu
recently on his way to Lethbridge.
When asked if the Halls Mines company
had succeeded iu securing a bond on the
Empire, Mr. McDonald said thut they
had not and that the property wonld be
developed by a private company. He
lso stated that the bond held on the
Dlue Urouse, lhe Langley brothers' property, by the Halls Mints company, wus
conditioned on the company securing
control _f the Empire. Failing in tbat
they Mould throw up tbe bond on tbe
Blue Grouse.
Ed. Smith, manager of tbe Sullivan
group, was iu town last Friday with a
bunch of ore that was to be sent to Spokane for the fruit fair exhibit. And as
au evidence of tbe hustling qualities of
Mr. Smith, the story of getting tbat ore
might prove interesting. Thursday afternoon he was in town when he received
word that the ore was wanted, and Mr.
Wade was going direct to Spokane the
next day, the ore must be iu town by
the following morning. "I'll h^ee it
here," said Mr. Smith, as he jumped
into his rig at four o'clock in the afternoon. And he did, but to accomplish it
be drove to Kimberly, and walked from
ihere to the mine, got up the men, went
to the shafts and 111 hied the ore, brought
it back to Kimberly and bad it in Cranbrook ready for sucking at seven o'clock
the next morning.
I Will Build lhe North Star Branch in
the Spring.
The Earl ol Ava and Mr. C. D. Oeddes View
tbe Sights of Cranbrook.
The Earl ot Ava, London, and Mr. C.
D. Geddes, Edinburgh, arrived iu the
city yesterday from tbe west. Both gentlemen had been doing West Kootenay
and were anxious for a trip over tbe
Crows Nest line. Thk H«rai,d representative saw Lord Ava and asked bis
opinion ofthe Kootenays ami Craubrook.
"We visited most of themiuingcamps
of West Kootenay, but of course have
seen little of East Kootenay. This ts a
great mining country and is bound to
increase in wealth. I am particularly-
impressed with Cranbrook. It is a beautiful place, situated as it is on a level
plain surrounded by these magnificent
mountains, aud should be quite a city."
Both of the gentlemen left on the early
train this morning for the east.
Killed an Elk.
T. G. Proctor, of the Halls Mines company, spent several days in town recently leaving Monday night for hia home in
Nelson. Mr. Proctor had just returned
from a bunting trip up the Elk where he
bagged a magnificent elk bull, bringing
the antlers back with him for mounting.
These animals are very scarce along this
range now, and Mr. Proctor's success is
unusual in consequence.
Just Received at C. A. Ollpla's.
A large car of fine furuiture, including
Upholstery |and Iron Bedsteads, which
will be held two weeks at Cranbrook, after lhat time the balance will be removed to Fort Steele. Make selections now
while stock is complete.
A School Meeting.
William Burns, inspector of schools
for the Kootenays, returned to Ctaubrook Monday after visiting other
schools in this district. While here he
conferred with other parties Interested
in school matters, and as a result a meeting has beeu called for Saturday evening
at 8 o'clock at the rooms of Manager
Smythe, over the bank. It is expected
that arrangements will be made for the
use of the Church of England for a tern
porary school, and that a teacher will be
secured without delay.
Qas at tbe Mill.
M.tking- His Annual Inspection of
the C P. R. Lines—Other
News of Interest-
A. Moffett, of the Cranbrook Lumber
company, is tbe first oue to introduce
acetylene gas in Cranbrook. He has
placed a plant at the mill, aud uow has
the office and several of the rooms in an
adjoining building lighted with this new
illnniiiiant. The mill will also be illuminated with it, to expedite work during the short days this winter. The
light is clear, bright and steady and in
many respects superior lo electricity.
I), D, Mann returned last Friday from
his trip to lhe North Star mine. He
was well pleased wilh the appearance of
his prnpeity and has arranged for an immense amount of work to be done this
winter. It is also quite probable tbat a
snow road will be constructed from the
mine to Cranbrook and ore handled
here for shipment this winter by rail.
The distance is not so much greater than
to lhe river where all the ore shipped
heretofore has been hauled, and the road
can be easily constructed.
Speaking of the branch line to be
built from Craubrook to lhe mines, Mr.
Mann said that after looking over the
(■round be bad come io the conclusion
tbut is was too late iu llie season to inaugurate the work Ibis year, but he added, "the people may rest assured that
we will he on the --.round as early in the
spring as the conditions will permit."
This settles the branch question for
this season aud it is uo surprise to anyone for the fact is fully appreciated that
woik could be continued only a short
time, except at great cost, as tbe frost
will soon be too deep to permit of anything in the way of railway construction
light work. As soon, however, as
the condilioii of thegrouud in the spring
will permit it, active work will begin on
the construction of this brunch road
from Craubrook to Kimberly. In the
meantime other details connected with
the construction Will be satisfactorily aril ged.
Mr. Mann left with bis family for the
east 011 the train Saturday morning.

SALAD   and.*
A member of Til 1, Hkkai.D -taff made
a trip from Lake Kootenay to Cranbrook
recently, and during that brief journey
bad an opportunity to fully appreciate
the difficulties of travel over a line on
which the rails bad just been laid.
There were a num hereof fellow sufferer.,
and the burdens of the journey were
borne as [lightly as circun.sUees would
Coming from Nelson the boat lands
the pa'seiigers on the trestle that is
built across tbe swamp and lower end of
the lake. Tbere i.s an incline on which
one walks to the trestle about 50 feet
above, and then tbere is a jaunt of about
one mile over tbe bridge. To a tight
rope walker inch a joumey might be a
pleasure, but to Uie ordinary mortal who
is accustomed to plantjhts feet on terra
firms at regular intervals, it is a different proposition. Sometime the ties
were iu position and sometime tbey
were not, and then it would he necessary to take to the stringers and with a
satchel in one band and nothing but air
iu the oilier, do tbe best you could.
Failure meant a ducking or broken
limbs, aud success meant-—well it meant
a good ileal. It was a great procession
thai bubbled and hopped, crawled and
jumped from tie lo lie. until land was
reached: but fortunately the passage waa
made iu safety, although there may
have been a few more gny bain at the
(1, aud tbe knowledge that at (his
place Paymaster Bernhardt bad been so
badly hurt a few days before, did not
help matters any.
From the end of the budge to the siding, lhe real terminus of the road at ibis
time, is about four miles, and as there
seemed to be a total lack of street cars
nd omnibuses, the line of march was
continued to ibe end At the siding it
was learned tbat no train would leave
until the next day. Thai meant a wait
of abont 30 hours. A vacant log shack
constituted depot, waiting room and hotel, and into this tbe passengers filed
tbeir way. Here during the long hours
Ibe crowd talked, told stories and nodded in that miserable half slumber that
leaves the mind wretched and tbe frame
Among the" passengers was a foreigner. He carried a pack ir.ade up cf a
small l-;nt, blankets, axe, and several
loaves of bread. It was soon discovered
that the man was neither a tramp or a
bobo, for be dropped easily into the conversation and so'.n displaced a depth of
learning aud a knowledge of affairs that
as a surprise to all. He had traveled
everywhere and bad see:; many people,
nd bis tales of experiences were gladly
received by his comrades in sorrow. To
him a capitalist was a criminal, and tbe
power of money a menace to civilization
nd liberty, arid be dilated on the evils
of trusts and monopolies with the ease
of a sandiotter of California or an anarchist of New Vork.    But now and then a
ift of sunshine would brighten his pessimistic pictures, and tbe humor of his
nature be revealed. He said that tbe
best position be ever held was the time
he received J25 a week for watching a
ghost  at a railroad  station   in   Texas.
Thai was a snap, but when the ghost
quit the country I lost my job." and be
laughed in recollection of bis experience.
Tbe following day everyone was crowded into a construction palace car, which
is a box car with a partition culling the
car in half. At one end bunks are
placed on each side. Tbe other is used
for tbe train crew. And this train bad a
crew ihat secured as much fun as possible out of the life Ihey led. Murphy
was the engineer and Howard the fireman. Young Williamson was the conductor and Kelly and^GeuesV were his
brakemen. They did what tbey could
to make tbe journey easy, bul with 40
people iu a box car and, 12 of ihem sick
with fever, one can imagine tbat comfort
was hardly possible.
Among the passengers was a gentleman unaccustomed lo r'-ughiug it, and
unused to Uie absence ol clean linen and
toilet accommodations, llut weary and
woru, he had sought rest on oue of the
bunks and was doing nicely when Genest
says to the conductor: "Williamson,
this car is gelling 'crummier' everyday,"
and began to scratch. Clint Campbell,
a C. P. K. slore keeper, u-tuatked tbat
he believed the vermin was pretty thick,
as he reached up tbe middle ol bis back
and scratched {vigorously. Others who
appreciated the game followed suit, aud
iu a minute or two there was a vacant
bunk, and a nervous old gentleman was
seated in a chair between the_bunks,
reaching first under one arm and then
the other, up his back and down his
Bides after greybacks he imagined were
swarming ovei his body. And he never
left the chair until he got off at Cranbrook.
It was a great trip, full of hardships
and .danger, witb the train "Off again,
on again, gone again, Fiunegan," yet
made endurable and even pleasant at
times by the good nature and jovial dia*
position of most of tbe party. Another
mouth and all will be changed, and a
trip through to Nelson or_relurn will be
as easy as a trip on auy road in the country.

follow in this district next year there is
one tiling that should be carefully
guarded against, and that is methods
tbnt are unfair, both to the prospector
and the purch iser, and are loo often
practiced by the middle man or mining
broker.    Thu  prospector   is

methods discourage the prospector nnd

On the other hand, there are brokers
wbo look upon men wlthcapitnl as legitimate prey, and u-ge them to buy prospects at pi ices ihat should secure mint's.
Whether or not their efforts are successful, ihe results are equally ns injurious

The Vancouver World is leu years old
aud has reason lo feel proud of the progress it has made. The paper is improving each month, und when it lully icali-
zes the Importance of the Kootenay

Tbe martial spirit scorns to he contagious. The Untied States no sooner gol
through with a foreign wur than lhe
troops were called out to control it lot of
Minnesota Indians wbo had donned
their war pii.it.
Postmaster-General .Unlock is receiving great prui-e in Hugh* ml for bis International postal changes. When some of
those Englishmen live a few mouths in
lhe Kootenays and wait for letters that
never come, tbey will change tbeir snugs
of praise to wails of discontent.
Tbe plebiscite vole showed a majority
for prohibition iu each of the provinces
except Quebec. But the vote wus so
small that even tbe friends of the mens*
ure are not rnsh enough to claim tbat it
represents Ibe sentiment of the people.
The Spokesman-Review issued a special edition on the ag'.lt of last month
lhat was the best paper lor the northwestern slates -md southern British Columbia ever issued. It presented in elaborate and attractive sijle reliable data of
tbe country, showing its wonderful mineral and Agricultural resources, nnd giv*
ing much Information of historical value.
The paper was issued for the Omaha exposition and will b-* ii powei for good.

He also saw the partisans who rushed a

When tbo day's sport was over, Mill

thut tbe size of Ash, whale or sucker,

"Sure, Bob," said Sohrelner, after he

Thu result Is thut Madrid and some of tho

a standstill. This means that Spanish
factories nnd Spanish Industries of almost
every sort havo been paralyzed, Little
food Is being brought into tho country,
nnd but littlo ex-iurting Is being dune;
hence thousands are idlu.
Added to tliis is thu fart that It is the
poorer olassos who bear tho bulk of the
wnr tax burden. Tho most oppressive of
theso war taxes aro thooctro! taxes, which
are levied on products taken from tho
country districts Into the cities, nnd vice
versa. Thus tliu peasant Who earrlea
eggs, chickens nnd fruit into Madrid pays
an octroi tux on each nrtlelu nt tho city
gates ns hu goes in, and if ho buys anything in thn city he is ngnin taxed as he
goes out. Naturally the prices which tho
peasant demands fur his produce nro higher than when he had uo tax to pay. In
the enso of the very pour, who always had
a hard tiiuu to get enough to eat, these
prices nro now practically prohibitive, and
thousands in Madrid havu been for weckf
without the barest necessities of lifo.
Realizing that starving peoplo uro apt
to be desperate the municipal government
of Madrid has made etforts to keep the
populace quiet  by  distributing fond, nnd
