says the Spokesman-Review. Mr
Cronin is not optimistic iu regard to the
lead situation. His mine is the largest
lead producer iu Canada and is one of
the largest in the north went, hut it is
practically shut down now on account of
the low price of lead.

Robert Dore, one of the Wild Horse
pioneers, has had a varied career and he
aud Dan Griffith were among the crowd
that came into East Kootenay when it
was a wilderness. The following article
printed a number of vein's ago in the
Golden Miner gives a good idea of conditions that prevailed timing those early
■'Robert Lake Dore was the liist pioneer of East Kootenay and tbe discover'
er of the fabulous richness of the placer
diggings on Wild Horse creek. He has
been engaged in milling business during
the greater portion nf his lifetime
When comparatively young lie war. attracted hy the spirit of ndveuture to California and came to that country in June
1850. Along with u coubIu ha was engaged in mining in that country until
May 185S when he first came to llritish
Columbia. He started from Sin Francisco to Victoria and went up the Fraser
river in a smalt boat. He mined on
Emery's bar and iu the autumn went
back to California. lie left California iu
1S62 for Idaho where diggings had been
discovered and in the fall of 1863 he
started out with a prospecting party of
seven to go to the headwaters of the Columbia river. He had received a letter
from Montana telling him that gold had
been got iu a creek at its headwaters bj
h halfbreed Indian called Fiudloy. This
creek is now known as Findlny creek
and although close lo the headwaters oi
the Columbia it empties into ihe Kootenay.
"Winter came on mul n.- , *-.re unable
to get in so they returned lo Walla
Walla valley where the party spent the
winter. Ou March 17th, 1864, they left
for the Kootenay country. There were
no trails nnd they had no guide. Dore,
however, made ihe acquaintance of an
Indian chief called Spokane Gaery who
drew him a good map of tbe country
ami by that map they travelled and after
a journey of aboul 400 miles struck the
Kootenay river about four miles ninth
.if the St. Mary's river. Tbey saw not
a white man in the whole course of that
long travel.    The rivers were crossed OU
tufts and the horses were made to switt
over. They bad 25 horses for pack ami
'.addle uses. They had lots of grub when
they started but it was giving out by tbe
tune the Kootenay was reached. This
river whs crossed and the first camp was
pitched on Bummer's Flat. This was
about the beginning of April 1&O4 The
Kootenay Indians they found very
friendly. They remained some little
time on Bummers Flat and from there
three of the boys went on to Findlay
creek, but finding nothing they cume
bnek, but by this time gold hail been
struck rich on Wild Horse creek. The
creek had no name but on their arrival
they saw a stud horse near its uiuutli.
He was alone nnd 30 they named the
creek Lone Horse creek, but the name
was afterward changed into Wild Horse
creek. Mr. Dore went up this creek to
prospect. After prospecting for several
days nothing was found hut after moving further up the creek about four miles
u creek claim was sttuck then bar diggings were found. Mr. Dire found the
liist gold right iu the bottom of the
"When encamped on Bummer's Flat
it party of ten came in from Montana
under Jack Fisher. They were also bound
for PlndUy creek.   Tbey went there but
came back discouraged, tn the meantime Mr- Dore had moved his party up
the creek and were busy prospecting,
The water iu  the creek
57 per tiny, hut Mr Dore has paid as
high as JS per day.
The cause uf tbis great influx was thnt
the moment Mr. Dore struck it rich he
sent bnek to Walla Walla for pack trains
to come in with provisions, aud also sent
out news us to the richness uf the country. People soon came Hocking iu. Provisions were very scarce until the puck
trains got tu. Mr. Dorr's party lived for
one month on flour and coffee without
sugar. Four hundred pounds of Hour
was all they bad to serve them Provisions had to   be   freighted   from   a   long
distance, and the cost ol freight Irom
Walls Walls wai from 75c to $t per lb
Tbe price of flour was fi 50 per lb.,
bacon was the same price.     There were
lots uf drinking saloons but there was
comparatively very little drunkenness,
The tlrst Chinaman came iu in 1865   He
kept a lodging house.
"The first government officials came In
about three months after the camp was
formed, By that time there were 3000
miners at work on the creek. The first
gold commissioner was Mr. Haines
.Mr. Dore speaks highly of Mr. Haines
He says,   'lie was  a   perfect gentleman
and tt very flue man." Law uml order
were maintained by a committee of about
fifty of which Boh Dore was president.
Tlie members of the committee weie selected by him. The only serious offence
was prior to tbe advent of the gold
commissioner and wns a murder committed by Yeast Porter Bill, a desperado
from Montana, who shot a man called
Tom Walker. Yeast Porter Bill succeeded in escaping from the ciitnp, but
as soon as the president of the Law uud
Order committee heard of the occurrence
lie followed in pursuit, and overtook
lilm near Brewery creek. He was rolled
up iu his blankets and asleep. He wus
waked up and with lhe aid of Mr. Dore's
shouting iron was persuaded lo hold up
his hands, allow his pistols to he removed and walk back Into camp.    He
was given a fair trial.    A judge, sheriff
and jury were elected, who tried him,
but be was acquitted. The committee
were not satisfied so be was told to clear
out within half an hour, which he did.
Intimation was also made throughout
the camp that if any person drew a pistol or knife in camp short work would
be made of him. Tbis had a most
tranqullisiug effect ami the camp was
one of the most peaceful camps in the
north. Shortly after this event the
Commissioner came lu. liis arrival was
not expected so early or else the prisoner would not have been so tried but retained for the commissioners aiaposai
of him.
The commissioner had only a recorder
with him aud a constable was appointed.
The claims were all properly surveyed
aud laid out, and there were no disagreements. Everything remained orderly iu
the camp. Tne extent of a claim was
mo feet, but original locators were entitled to 15-1 feet.
The diggings continued good for four
years, then a new excitement broke out
down south 111 Coeur d'Alenc which tool:
uwiy a great number. Mr. Dore sold
out aboul ihis time and went north tt
Peace river. This would be in 1870 lit
afterwords with a large parly explored
the east side of the Rockies opposite
Wild Horse creek, for traces of gold going through the mountains, hut they
were unsuccessful. Eight ot them then
crossed over the mountains and came
back into Wild Horse creek where they
sunk a big shaft. They went down a
depth of 80 feet aud bad to stop, as they
had uo machinery to pump out the
water. This shaft is about three miles
above the ground owned by the Itivicta
Placer company. This shaft is now
owued by another company, who has
done some mure work on it, It is an attempt to discover the old channel of the
Wild Horse creek.
Mr. Dore's next resting place was up
in the Cassair, where he abode one winter, then he wandered on to Alaska.
Tbis being the north limit he returned
south and got as far down as Uld Mexico. Prospecting through Arizona, New
Mexico and Colorado some few years of
his life time.
The District is Looking Bdlcr Than
And Development is Demonstrating; the Large Ore
there was great difficulty in getting
down into the bed ofthe creek, s> the
bars were prospected and many of these
were found to be very rich. Mr. Dole
himself put iu his first sluice boxes aud
the gravel was so rich that they had to
wash up about three times a da/. The
largest cleanout tu one day was 250 ozs„
about J4500, With ,the aid of a howie
knife and an axe Mr. Dore made a
wheelbarrow which assisted operations
so extensively that four men working
together with the aid of the wheelbarrow
would average about $7000 per week. A
ditch was also put in, the water iu
which could readily have cold at fi per
inch per day. Mr. Dore afterwards constructed a larger dtlch called the Victoria ditch and which still exists .it this
day. This ditch held '2500 inches of
water and was sold for four hits, 50 cents,
an inch per day. The cost of its construction was $45,000 and it look two
seasons to finish it. By ihe time it was
finished there was a great change iu the
camp. There would be about 3000 men

Marys vil.e Tribune,
A few years ago if one mentioned
Kast Kootenay one was Invariably asked) "Where is It?'1 To-tlay things are
somewhat changed, East Kootenay is
distinctly "in the public eye," Toronto
and Montreal know where Eist Kootenay is. New York, Chicago anil San
Francisco know where lusi Kootenay
Is. London, Berlin and Pans also
know where East Kootenay Is. Why '
Because the known wealth of the
mountains In out district has „rut abroad
Where is there a mining man lu any of
the great centers named who hns not
heard of the Sullivan, the North star,
the St. Eugene sod the Crow's Nest coal
Ileitis and has not a pretty good Idea ct
their woik' It la an accepted fact that
K 1st Kootenay has come to the front
as a mineral producing region. Let us
see what Kist Kootenay is producing
and then let us look Into iti luteir
wealth awaiting only the adveut of
capital and railway communication.
First let ui visit ihe great c >al pro
duclng region of the Crow's Nest Pass.
There Is enough coaWn that region to
supply the whole of the American ecu
tliient for years to come. The estimated output for ltlOl was about 100,000
tons of coal and 100,000 tons of coke
There are in operation 134 coke ovens
at Fernie anil 812 at Michel. The output of 1002 will leach at least 500,000
tons. New openings are being made at
variour. points and shlpplnn wlil-.com-
inence early In this year. Now ut ns
look, briefly only, at the Movie district.
t>u,t„w 101.11, »«onrding to the report of
the minister of mines, tne at. Bugeut
mine produced more lead than any
other single producer in the province
or nearly as much as the combined output of the Slocan district. It shipped
during tlm year 17,000 ton-- ore valued
Dt 81,000,000 and paid $310,000 In dlvl-
dens. The Society Girl, situated on the
lame lead has shipped trial shipments
and Is being developed in inch a waj
that It will soon be a regular iblpper
The same may he said of tne Anrora en
tne opposite side of Moyle lake. Agate
the Windermere district, a district of
undoubted worth as a mineral country
awaiting only the Don Horse to give Its
riches to the world. Such properties
s the lied Line, tbe Silver Belt, tbe
Paradise and Pelphlnc, the Silver King
are household words. Then the Ball
river country with Its vast deposits of
Iron and Its great silver, gold and copper deposits. The Star Group of mines
lu this region are too well known to
need discretion here.
Tnen the Perry Creek district with
Its paying placer grounds. Wild H nse,
that historic creek that produced stime
820,000,000 In the early T.O's and has
been producing ever since, palmer's
Dar with its silver lead properties,
Tracy Creek with the famous .Ettella
mine, which by the way will ship as
soon as navigation opens.
Then to come nearer home the Sullivan Group and the North Star two of
the greatest silver lead producers In the
province situated, so to speak at our
very door. The North Star having
paid 8237,000 In dividends, of which
$117,000 was paid last year. The S.illi-
van has been a regular shipper bul profits have been put into further develop*
Then last but not least the tipper St.
Mary's country which Is directly iribu-
Uiy to our town, ls only In Its Infancy
but will be a producing section al a
very early date. Such properties as
the Great Diue and the Hard Scrabble
a rich copper property, the other a
silver lead mine, cannot remain lu the
back ground when railway communication Is established. Nol only Is Kast
Kootenay, as has been shown, a mineral region, but it ls a timber country
of no small merit. At the present t!m-r
theie are lltteen saw mills producing
approximately about 400,000 feet of
lumber per day  and  employing about
100 men.    Tula lumber flnds a ready
inirket In lhe vast provinces to the
eait of us.
As an agricultural country Kast
Kootenay Is well to the front. The
Windermere district ii a farmer's paradise. There In the fall of the year may
be seen vast Acids of wheat, oats and
other cereals while cattlej and sheer,
graze at will on the magnificent range,
the Kootenay Vail, y above and below
