four or live while men mining gold

West Kootenay was a terra incognita, aud with the exception of a few
miners on tlie llig Mend of the Columbia river, no part of the whole
district except Wild Horse and vicinity had a single resident. The Canadian Pacific Railway was in course

dlnary steam users coal Would   cost
$2.iMl per ton, and there would   also
have tu be udded lo ibe calculat	
the wages nf a certificated engineer,
and, possibly, tbe wages nl a fireman
also It is, therefore, sale to say
that, in general, the cost of stean

hoi so power per hour, In the casi
of uu engine winking ;,].. days iu tbe
year, and Hi bums a day, the cosl
ot coal derived .steam works mil at
$03,1)0 per horse power per year. In
the particular case from which those
figures are deduced, a 20-hursu power
boiler required oti Ions of coal during
the month of October, working In
hours a day. To tliis expenditure
was added tail for wages, and $10 I'm
depreciation, Any one can mnko llie
calculation from this data.
No doubt iu saw mills, where tho
fuel costs Very little, tile expense ,.,
less, but then there is to bo consider-
d ihe interest on the immey invested
i an expensive plant, aud also depreciation, su t ha l even iu t host-
places steam power must cost, from
$70 to $76 per horse power per year.'
In this connection it may he pointed
out as an interesting fact that ihe
Ureal Northern l.umner Company, ol
Vancouver, which started business in
December, l!)0.i. is using eleclrli
power supplied ihem by Ihu Vancum
er Power aud Light Company. It Is
reasonable to think  that  Ibis  lumber
itipaiiy is using the power they Hud
tin- cheaper ami most convenient.
The Hull River Powet uud l.ig'at
Company is now installing a plain
which will afford u means of cheap
production of industrial goods, which
cannot fail to greatly stimulate both
trade aud manufactures of all kinds
in Kast Kootenay.
With such a plant we shall have our
electric light ready fur use at any
hour of the day or'night, Without be
iig al the mercy of the vagaries of
steam engines. The electric range is
now a recognized udjunct of all really
first-class hotels and restaurants,
possessing the beautiful feature thai
it produces heat in exact proportion
lu lhc necessity of the article being
cooked, wit bunt Inordinately heating
the apartment in which it is set up.
Electrical radiators, for in tenia I
heating, me also coming into general
use In modern houses, especially in
ihe residential portion ol the eastern
cities. By means of a switch we can
produce the amount ol heat wo need
iu any room aud have that Ilea!
maintained with perfect steadiness, a
feature in must agreeable contrast lo
the old-fashioned slovo, which hardly
knows a medium between a roasting
boat aud arctic frigidity. Iu future
Iho man-of-ilic-house will need only i
press a button, and the good angvi,
electricity, will save him tho necessity of chasing out to the wood pile,
and laying the seeds uf a domestic
rebelliuii as he try's to get a fire
started. How many thousands of otherwise happy homes have been wrecked hy the'exactions of the tyrant

then, with those pestilent destroyers

With electric power mining property

all that will bo needed is a dynamo

nihil dynamo will do ihe hoisting,

Watching over ull Is the quiet little

on the exact amount of energy the

These facts have struck many practical minds, with the result that, one

When the great Niagara is made to

might say, instead of being a mere

understand   that    term In tbe east.
We  do   not   have   lo   make   loads,    lul
the simple leas.,n that we can run a
truck anywhere wc need through tho
open woodlands. That is why you
gm tangled up going down to the siding. We run the roads wherever we
have any need for the horses to go,
or, to    sneak correctly, the   trucks
" Out umber is of exceptional
growth, and veiy sound. This saves
no end of waste, both in tftne and
material. We can reach every acre
of qui limits with the trucks.
"We started in business here in
July, 1003, and I am clad to say
have done well, ilmii^b the limes
huve nol been sn very good. Still,
we have sold pretty well alt out lumber, and will have to do some logging during the winter to keep up
Willi our orders.
■ 1 think the talk about depression
is somewhat exaggerated. There has,
of course, been some oi it, arising, in
my opinion, from a tendency amongst
the lumbermen lo cul pines This
will Boon right itself, AH will b«

The mill ami its appurtenant

up the mirth, wesl and east forks of
Palmer's Bar Creek, are the properly
of Albert   Edward Walts, one   time
Lodge No. 178, Brotherhood of Railroad Carmen of America, Cranbrook, B. C.
Government from the people ot
Southern Alberta asserted that suchji
a combine positively existed—indeed, j J
it still exists—and cited iu proof that £
whereas in 1001 boards cost but $10 If
pet thousand, that at the date ot the
petition they bail advanced to $21
per thousand. It also showed that
during Ibe same period Hooting bad
advanced from $211 to $31 per thousand, while shingles ami lath Increased proportionately. Those figures
speak fm themselves, bnt as a further
emphasizing ol their grim significance
it must be stated that while they
were steadily advancing, enormous
quantities of American lumber was
being poured into Manitoba, free of
1I11I), ami sold at prices with which
it spell ruin Im tbe British Columbia
manufacturer to contend. To still
further drive homo that argument, we
find that Mi. .1. W. Coburn, of the
l.adysiniib I,umber Compauv. stated
111 i'he Viet,11 ni Colonist ol November nth lasl, that notwithstanding
lhc fact thai Ihere were then lKII,-
000,000 teei uf lumber iu British Columbia ready for shipment to the
North West', still no less than 450
ear-, of material had been shipped
into Manitoba ami the adjoining provinces dining the previous mouth ot
Octohel from ihe Stale of Washington alone.
The only practical means of dealing
wiih this luiiiber dealer's association,
whieh has proved as injurious to the
people Within the scope of its operations as it has to the lumber in-
dustrv nt British Columbia, seems to
have been bit upon by the forming of
the Lumbermen's Manufacturing Association, winch will fight the dealers with an improved type oi their
own weapons, and meet them on their
own ground, ihere to contend for the
welfare of the ranchers, setllers and
ordinary consumers.
In tliis brief interview of the general conditions of a most important
industry, lhc suggestions of Mr.
I.eiteh hearing upon the necessity of
improved methods of logging, and, indeed, of better business methods ot
management all round, should not he
lost sight of. They will, doubtless,
press themselves on the attention of
those whom thev most concern, without any undue laboring of the point.
The matter nf the revision ot the
tariff on American lumber imported
Into Canada, may be safely lett to
the officials and responsible men at
the head of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association, who may rely on

This firm erected its mill on St.

Lumber Co. aud Leask aud Slater
(now the Cranhrook Sash and Door
Company), alone having precedence
of them in Ibe lumber Industry ot
this district.
For greater convenience in handling
of their bigs ihey erected a dam
arross St. Joseph's Creek, whereby
a pond ot rather more than an acre
in extent was formed, from which the
logs are lifted to the mill as lequir-
d. The mill has a dally capacity of
40,0110 feet, working the ordinary ten
hours sidfl. Its plant Is entirely
modern, consisting of two boilers',
working al 133 pounds pressure per

by the Waiernu.; Company, and drive

When Mr. Cronin was giving the
materials for ilns article, he spoke
of ,i certain new strike which had at-
traded much attention when the
knowledge of il became cnrrenl
through the Movie Loader, and verv
kindly suggested that lhc writer
should have a look at the scene thereof, aud he in a position to describe
whal lie saw with his own eyes, ami
leave nothing lo hear-say evidence.
The writer jumped at the chance, for
mine managers do not care, as a rule,
lo have strangers making Inspections
of their properties. If mini' owners
had lo show what Mr. Cronin makes
mi mystery about, it may very well be
said that they would be glad enough
to make exhibition of it. He Ihal ns

Cronin had made the suggestion for

" I remember," said a gentleman
lo Ihe writer, " Ihe lirst day I came
to Cranbrook. It was in the middle
of July, and the country was everywhere scorched with a long drouth
at the time. I walked in the direction of Mr. Archie Leltch's residence
over a road Inches deep in alkaline
dust. Here and there a gopher scuttled through parched, withered grass
ihal rallied like so much wire. It
looked as il lhc Sahara could not
he more sterile, and that agriculture
war. a thing out nf the question. Hut
looking around I noted ihe splendid
finest growth, and wondered where
tht: giant pities got infill' moisture
Irom 7 They are nol deep moled
trees hy any means, ami it therefore
appeared lo' tne that tliere must he
water a few feet below Ihe surface.
Siuh I fniiml to he Ihe case. Dry
though the SlU'faco may he, sliil Ihe
lite-giving moisture is never far
down. My after experience nf ibe en-
lire country around hero convinces
me Ihat, with irrigation, even St.
.losiph'.s prairie would he made lo
flourish like a garden."
That limy he a Hide strongly put,
hut the broad, sound sense of the
statement remains. With Irrigation
the land in the imiiicdinte vicinity of
Cranbrook, thai Is the parts lying
within a mile or so nf Ihe cily, nre
capable nf producing everything
which the more favored portions outside tbe mile radius are able lo pul
on the maiket. Wherever water is
found, there you will lind luxuriant
vegetal ion. The worst nf the land is
good if water were available ; where
it is available Ihe conditions are
occupied.   From   Wasa lo Klk river,
_ along    ihe   valley of    tlie  Kootciuy,
* I theie are   thousands or acres of i-i ij
* land mi which no settler has . w i ul
*|up a stake. This land has a consid-
m orable amount of Cottonwood Iree.i
J growing on il, and also small sir ib,
ifijhut none of it presents any dlUlctlty
Hi in clearing.   The soil is a deep, black
loam of grcal depth, capable of growing cinps almost indefinitely Without
the necessity oi manure, since it is
chiefly id vegetable origin. Around
Fort Steele there is a considerable
amount of prime laud sliil unoccupied, and the same may be said ol llie
laud to the wesl of Cranhrook < <-
tending along llie C. I*. K. Here
there must hi' about 1,1100 acres t f
beaver meadow which form part nf
the Maker eslate, and is open to local ion.
Last summer nuHo a number nf immigrants came iu all Ihe way from
Wyoming in their prairie schooners.
All have found suitable locations iu
tin- Immediate vicinity of Cranbrook,
and one id' them, Mr. James M.Taylor, is now doing splendidly with a
milk ranch close In Ihe town ; Mr.
Taylor gets Hi cents per gallon for
his' new milk. Many or the iniiiii-
granis who pushed in here lasl summer have gone     oil   to   llie    beautiful
Windermere country, and are doing
well, so Mr. Taylor savs.
The best land can be had from llie
government for S"i an acre, and sec
mid-class laud lor $3.50. The lands
owned by the I'. P. H. can be had
mi Ihe same terms, hut nu ralltel
more advantageous time allowances
than the government permits.
The farmers have the best market
in Canada for Iheir produce in the
nearby towns, and iu the lojtglng and
milling camps. Tlmse latter roiiulre
large quantities of hay, oats, butler,
eggs, beef and pork.
The prices tn be bad arc something
startling, when eompnred with those
prevailing in the old Country. Hm
ter realizes SO cents a pound, oi
about equivalent lo a shilling an.I
threepence in F,nglfsh coinage. I'-iCgs
sell al IU cents a dozen, or nne shilling and eighl pence.   All other pi ices
In the late summer the   Cranbr
prairie is far from being a picture of ol farming produce arc equally high
fertility, but water can he got   any- Mr.    0,   (I. Powell    now   occupies

When   we exclude   St.   Joseph's and .,,„,   , ,   ,

her, of course, interferes lo some extent with agriculture, hut its deitsiiy
is as nothing when compared with
what is being successfully dealt with
iu Ihe neighborhood of Nelson and the
good, hut those grown on a loamy
soil with a considerable mixture of
sand are specially excellent. Thev
are a reliable standby, uml if stored
in a properly built root house will
last from one season in the beginning of the next, without showing
any sign of deterioration.
Wheat is nol much grown except as
feed for poultry, but used in lliis
way is a most remunerative crop, On '
lite Powell ranch oats are expected tn yield ")0 bushels to
the acres in average years. Last i
season was one of phenomenal drouth
there having been no rain of conse*i
quence Irom April to November, j
N:Mwnh.-:, Hiding this very scri-u::
drawback the oat crop did well,
though there was a falling of! as
compared with more favorable veals,
'I'he crop did not do at all well on
Ihe higher ground where it caught
none of tbe suh-irrlgtttion from the
Kootenay river. Mr. Powell had 130
acres of oats last season.
Alfalfa should prove a successful
crop on any ground of sandy or porous nature, where the roots have a.
chance ot descending in their search
for moisture, but where tliere is a
hard, impervious subsoil the crop
woflfl nol prove a success.
Timothy is seeded iii with oats as
a first crop on bottom land, and is
a money-maker. On high ground it
will need irrigation. At present (5th
December) it sells in car load lots,
laid down, al $10.30 per ton. Meadow bay sells at $11.35 per ton in car
lots lifid down in Cranbrook. In Ibe
spring and early summer timothy
s.'lls al $30 a lou, laid down.
Mr, Powell has fattened two-year-
old steers off bis own pasture which
dressed 000 pounds. Beasts of this
weight sell iu Cranbrook at from
$.18 to ilu each, n line remunerative
price for range cattle, and it may be
said ihal there is any amount of
range land to be bad in the district.
Tbe dairying industry has not been
exploited to any extent, as those
who have milking stuck in the vicinity of the towns prefer to sell the
milk direct to consumers.
P.iulirv fanning is a highly successful and most paying business.
Ktrgs sell al iO cents ,\ dozen, and
chickens at IR cents a pound, dressed As egg-producers, the Brown
Leghorn is tbe correct bird for ilie
country, ami for the general utility
fowi tlie Hull Orpingtons are exeelleul, being good layers am! hard t"
he surpassed for the table. Turkeys
hardly pay at present, nnr will they
until the country is more settled up.
This country is particularly well
adapted f,.i fruit culture, especially
apples, Mr. Powell's experiences
With Hie Duchess of Oldenburg and
Bed Asirachan correspond with tlmse
nl Mr. (lalhr.iith, of Fort Steele. Ho
will plant out four acres next year
In addition to what be has at pres
cut under fruit trees. Cherries grow
Well along the valley of tbe Knot,
eiiay river, Ihe May Duke being the
best tree for ihe locality,
Tlie general conditions of agricul-
tuie ale entirely excellent all through
the East Kootenay district, aud for
mixed fanning tliere are thousands
of acres still open for location. As
was sai.l before, the C, P, R. offers
really good terms to settlers of the
lands of Kast Kootenay. These Include Ihe whole of tbe Lake Windermere country, ihe most, tieautiful
land iu British Columbia from tbe
agricultural standpoint, That sounds
gb.wing, but it does lint exaggerate
iu llie slightest degree.
At Ihe present nmmeiit the logging
and mining camps are the very best
markets for llie general farming
produce of lho North West, and the
hniiie markels are almost wholly dependent on ihem for supplies. There
are not emougli cattle in the Cranbrook vicinity Io keep its market fed
for two months, ar.d .so it is with
other farm products. Intending sct-
tlers fivm other places, who read
this paper, can form an idea fiom
this fact what a field lies open to
them in this vouio;, thriving and
progressive country.
Wi.,Tv.r called Canada " Our I.adv
of the .Snows,'' did ber an incalculable amount uf harm, and all for the
.sake a pretty locution, a trope, a
mere turn of liierary craftsmanship.
Taken by and lar^e. as the sailors
say, such a description is nothing
slmrt of a libf-1 on British Columbia.
The climate d.-pt-iids ..n ihe altitude.
Cranhrook is 2,900 feet above sea
level, .us! though it freezes healthilv
those nights, ' as we draw on to
Christmas, still you see the majority
of the people going about without
overcoats, mils r.r overshoes. In the
Kootenay valley it is still more genial, hut if you take a trip up the
mountains, you will get all tbe cold
you want, and that even in the blaze
of s*immer, when the humming birds
arc whirring in the gardens of Cranhrook and beds of wild flowers, Yes,
humming birds. Plenty of them, too,
and of many varieties.
Farm wa-^es arc high when measured by eastern standards, and still
more so if compared with those paid
in the Old Country, being fully irom
eight to twelve limes as high as in
Ireland, For gor,d men $40 a month
with hoard is about the average. For
young man with a knowledge ol
farming, no better means oT finding
out the conditions of the country can
be suggested than to hire out with a
respectable    rancher,   save    up   the
wages, and keep an eye on the pns-
siliilitiis around here Let lorn then
put the savings into a homestead,
register It under the Homestead Act,
and fuitil tin- advice of Horace Orecly
" Oo west, young man, arid grow up
with the country." We have the
country right here around us, and
when you sec il, you will love it, on
we all do
" Wages and ibe expenses uf living
are high," said Mr. Powell, " bui I
do nnl look upon them in the light
i a disadvantage, since the hitch
prkes we get for everything we pro
uce renders them a matter ol very
mall moment If wages ate high,
nen can live better, dress better and

Ihing expenses are high, we live

Slates, Including Uie wheal belt of
Kansas. I have also been tlnoiich
ibe North West up as far as the
Peace Rivei, hut after all my wanderings I have never seen so perfect
a country as this is for mixed farming iu point of climate, soil and ease
of ciearlng.
"There is no general condition prevailing in Ibis country in prevent
any man who understands his business and is steady and Industrious,
making a thorough success of mixed
and dairy farming amongst us. When
all is said, it is Ihe farmer who is
the backbone of a country. Farming
may not afford a very attractive occupation In the man in a hurry to
get rich, hut, is the surest business
of all, and will leave a splendid heritage  to our descendants."
