The people of South linst Kootenay
liuve been intensely interested in the
outcome of the Marysville smelter project, The people know Unit the Sullivan
mine is classed among the best of lead
properties in British Columbia, and that
the smelter at Marysville wns projected
far the purpose of handling the ure of
that mine. They know that there has
been large suuis of money expended up
to date on the smelter, but the silence
on the part of the company the past two
months has given rise to a feeling of uneasiness. The following article from
the Spokesman-Review will tiling relief
to the minds of in.>ny, since It indicates
that there is soon to be a resumption of
the work:
One of the inteiesting questions agitating Spokane mining circles Is the status
of the affairs of the Sullivan group of
lead mines at Kimberley, II, C. All
sorts of rumors aie current ns to the
bulldiug of tbe proposed smelter plant
at Marysville, II. C.
Several months ago the company decided that the only way the property
could be operated at a profit was to
build a smeller for the treatment of its
oie. Accordingly the capital stock was
increased 500.000 shares, which were
pledged for a loan of $100,000 with
which to build tbe smelter.
Clay suitable for the manufacture of
brick war discovered on the property,
brick kilns were erected nnd work was
begun, under the direction of Manager
Austin, preparatory 10 the construction
of the smelter. The actual construction
of the smelter wns begun and carried almost lo completion, when it was discovered that the plans would have lo be
changed; iu other words. Hint nearly the
eutire plant would hive to he remodeled.
As   a   m.mlt   Mn.mgt >    (Vmntn Stepped
down and out. nml n new mnnnger whs
secured, a Mr. Elm-ndoif, of Colorado,
The new manager made a detailed report of the conditions at the smelter
about Iwo months ago, but the directors
refused to give out anything tor publication. The refusal of the directors to
make public thc affairs of the company
has led to nil sorts nf rumors.
One of these rumors is to the effect
that over $50,01,0 hns been expended on
the -'innl. an.l that ihis umount will be
almost a total loss to the company. It
ts also stated that uuleas sddfHonal
binds nre secured the compaliy will be
unable in carry out its plans us originally Intended, It Is said that the founds-
lions of the smokestacks were defective,
and that what had not fallen down
would have to be rebuilt. In short, the
plant was said to be In such bad shape
thai its abandonment was being considered,
The Spokesman-Review Ins received
several Inquiries dining ihe past few
days relative to the status ofthe Sullivan group. The only definite Information obtainable is to the effect that the
company has no intention ol discontinuing the work on the smeller plant,
Senator George Turner, who is president of lhe company, when Interrogated
last evening said: "Tiiere is absolutely
no ttutli in the statement thut the smelter project is to be abandoned, Cm the
other hiuid, the company is going ahead
with the work, and we expect to put on
a full torce of men not later than September 1, and to be smelting ore within
60 days thereafter.
"We Bte now working a force of 10
men nnd have been right along since
Manager Hlmcndorf took charge ofthe
plant. The full force of men will be put
on as soon George Mull,   who has gener*
1 supervision of the woik, returns from
tbe east."'
Senator Turner declined to be interviewed as to Manager Bl me ml or He re-
poit and as [n whether additional funds
would be required lo complete the
Later News.
Tin- Herald in In receipt of good news,
it ha* positive In format ion timi Instructions liuve been given to resume work on
the smelter buildings and that everything has been saiisfaclorily adjusted.
Manager Hull will return from the east
in a few duj n, bul iu the meantime work
will be pushed on the buildings in accordance to the modified plaus.
under existing conditions, be handled Ht
a profit, it is belter lo leave the ore
where il is for the present.
"I do not look for much rise in the
markets for the nexl two years, so that
we must look for cheaper smelling rates
or cheaper transportation facilities.
There wus, as you are aware, a loss in
shipping the 1000 tons of ore. A profit
would have been made had the ore been
shipped direct lo Ibe smelter at the lime
il was landed at the river, but while it
lay ihere waiting fur navigation lo open
the market quotations kepi going down.
But it was necessary lo have lhe ore
smelted, even at a loss, 111 order to gel
buck part of the capital invested. Even
the test shipment ol 150 tons of the best
grade of ore made this season did not
reiurn a profit.
"The difficulty in Wesl Kooteuay today is due to lhe fact that lhe men have
quit operating their mines on investing
capital and want the ore to pay for mining it- My experience has taught me
that ore must be mined at a profit, "ap
Hal imisl be spent on devtloptnen;, hut
when ore is found It must pay for the
cost of mining it.
''There is ouly one way in which conditions can be changed so that the 1'arn-
dise mny continue to work, nml Hint is
hy lhe construction of a wagon road
from the Toby road up Spring creek
basin, which would do away with the
heavy cost of raw-hiding. That would
mnke a saving of about $2 to the ton."
New Supply ol Coke.
Nelson, B. C, Aug. 15.— Assistant-
Superintendent I-'luiuetfelt and Smelter
Manager Hodges of the Granby Conaol
idatad, arrived in the city today, returning front a trip to Fernie and Michel to
see bow soon sufficient coke could be
shipped to permit the smelters to run
again. Michel is turning out 180 tous ol
coke per day, and Fernie about 10. By
the end of the week repairs to some of
the tunnels at Coal creek will have been
made sufficient to get out enough for
running purposes. The present output
is being laid by as a reserve to be divided between all the smelters.

Mining Notes.
It begins to look as if Baker Mountain

An immense amount of assessment
work hns beeu done in this district this
The St. Marys Valley Is hound to be
one of the richest mineral sections iu all
of South Fast Kooteuay.
The more the country around Marysville is orosnected. the more the people
are convinced that it ts a very rich territory.
Out of $3,900,000 worth of copper
shipped from Canada to the United
States, the Boundary country shipped
over (2,000,000.
Mr. McPeak and hoy**, who have been
placer mining at Palmer's Bar, hnve met
with very good success, although they
are using only crude appliances.
Fred Hazen brought down some magnificent specimens of native copper
from his claim on the St. Mary's river.
There hnve been few If nny In the district that would equal it.
The tunnel in the Clover Leaf property has been completed to within about
,10 feet of tbe shall, nnd as soon ns finished development work will be resumed. The prospects for this property
nre brighter than ever.
The low price of lead nnd copper bus
caused prospectors to take an increased
interest in gold bearing quartz. South
lOisl Kootenay has tunny sections that
promises rich returns for development,
and ns a consequence the next year may
bring forth some paying gold properties
in this district.
J. C- Drewery arrived in town last
Friday, having rode over the summit
from Pilot Bay to the Great Dane property iu tbe St. Marys river. He left
Saturday for Moyie. Speaking of the
Great Dane he said the property was in
fine shape, and that the development
done the past wiutei demonstrated the

Paradise Shut Down.
S. S. Fowler, the well known mining
engineer of Nelson, expressed himself
as follows lo the Wilmer Outcrop, re-
gaiding the Paradise miue, located in
that territory:
"I make two visits a year to the Paradise, but it occupies loo much lime in
coming from Nelsou to make more frequent visits. The Paradise is looking
better now than ll ever has I do not
any that the Paradise is n mine, but It is
a very promising prospect," remarked
Mr. Fowler, quite pleasantly, but he
continued, now seriously:
"Much as I prefer not to, I must ad*
vise Mr. Hammond to close the Paradise
down. I realize thnl it will fleriously effect this district and very much regret it
hut iu justice 10 my client 1 must advise
that the workings he closed for a year,

A Sheep Country.
'Do you know," said J. W. Rnhiuson
the other day, "thai South Bast Kootenny ought to be a gootl sheep country.
We have some excellent grazing finds
here for sheep, nud the valleys offer excellent protection lor lhe winter. There
would be no trouble to carry sheep
through a winter with a little feed for
lhe most severe mouths, I expect to
see that tried here, and It is liable to become a big Industry, Successful sheep
ranching offers great Inducements as
they go into money rapidly on comparatively small investment."
W. W. Ooble's Funeral.
The remains of \V. W. Doble, who
died Wednesday morning of last week,

where services were held Thursday afternoon at 2:30. The funeral services of
the English church were first read by
Rev. Beachaui, nud then the Odd Pel

When tbe Craubrook baseball team
left for Pincher Creek aud Medicine
Hat a week ago Sunday Itwasconll-
dently expected that they would win
the game at Pincher and break even at
the Hat, but. the most sanguine enthusiast hardly dared predict that, with only
one pitcher, they would be able to win
three games In succession lu as many
days, having their rest broken In the
meantime by railway travel. Uut lhe
result or the trip shows that Manage)
Small had chosen tils men well, ami
that every man played tils position with
a determination .0 uphold the reputation of the team and prove their ability
of putting up a class of ball that should
satisfy alt that they were entitled tn
the hearty support nf Cranbrook's citizens.
The boys were loud In their praise of
he treatment accorded them by the citizens Of both towns and especially ut
Medicine Hat, where they were givea
the freedom of the city anil entertained
la a royal manner at the conclusion U
tbe games.
The game at Pincher on Monday wus
a one aloud ulYdlr, our hoys clearly outclassing tbelr opponents, and the Pincher Greeks weut down to defeat by a
score of 10 to 5.
On Tuesday the lirst game with the
Hat was played and proved to be the
closest and must Interesting of the series, score at tbe end of in**, eighth Inning aland.uk nil In favor of the prairie boys, but In tbe ninth our boys garnered in three runs and succeeded iu retiring the Hatites In one, two, three order, thus winning tbe game. The score
by Innings:
Medicine  Hat 2 0012003 0—6
Cranbrook 0 0 4 0 0 0 0 3 a—lu
On Wednesday the last game of the
series was played and the prairie boys
bad accumulated Ave ruus before the
close of their half of the inning, and
this, together with the fact that the
famous Mike O'Hara was to do the
twirling fur the Hit, nerved their man
ager up to the extent that he offered to
bet an even hundred on his team. He
was quickly accommodated and our boys
went after that hundred like a nigger
after a fat chicken on a dark nighl, aud
It took them just three tunings to make
O'Hara's reputation look like a tomato
vine after a heavy frost. Tweed relieved O'Hara In tbe fourth bul our boys
had their battlpg clothes on and continued to pile up tbe runs In a manner
tbat would take tbe heart out of a stoic
and at tbe close of tbe eighth the score
stood ]t> li iu our favor, and au tbe Halites were unable to score in tbe ninth
the game was ours. The score by innings: j

Young Jamleson's record ol pltcnlng
three winning games on consecutive
days Is one that is seldom equalled and
icver excelled, ami when you consider
tbe long railway journey and broken
rest it is phenomenal, and he should
be classed among the best of amateur
pitchers. And by that same token, we
would like to see lhe photo of an amateur catcher who is In It with Joe Ber*
tram. He Is playing ball from start to
finish and tbe base runner who attempts
to steal second Is Invariably retired.
Besides tbis his excellent work behind

to encourage a pitcher. InfaciCraa-

have an opportunity 10 show the natives

Malcolm Leilch, mnnager ofthe well-
known Leltch Brothers' flour mills at
Oak Lake,' MJu., was in town this
week. Mr. Leilch is an old resident of
Manitoba, and being a close observer oi
conditions is well posted on western
Canada. Speaking ofthe marvelous increase of business In that section, he
said: ''CHtiada lias never seen anything
like It. The land boom is ou, and nothing can slop it now. From Winnipeg
to Medicine Hat the trains are crowded
each day, and at itfoosejaw, which is the
gateway for a large portion of the immigration from the Stales, Die platform
is crowded daily with hundreds of people from the Other side hurrying to some
part of the territories in search of land.
Iu Winnipeg the sume conditions exist.
It is difficult to realize what this will
mean to Canada, for it is a working
population that is coming iu, men with
money mnl energy to develope the idle
lands of this country. And if the promise* of this year's yield is fulfilled, there
will be a greater rush than ever. The
prospects up to date were never better.
Except in a few places, the wheat will

There  are  three   ways   to  EeCUfC this
much desired Improvement:
1 By Incorporation.
2 By the formation of a com] iny,
3 By inducing the C, p. K. to extend
us present system.
The majority of the citi/.-.ns would
favor the lirst plan, since :t would place
a valuable franchise in the ban,Is of the
people, and prove a gtei', n venue producer for the town for all time to come.
In fact, it would, under proper management, almost pay the expense of an
economically managed municipality the
sue of Cranbrook, and iri lime provide a
sinking fuud to meet the debentures
used for its construction. This furnishes one of Ibe many excellent reasons
why Cranbrook  should be incorporated.
The time to move in this matter is

shaped up so lhal a bill would be ready
for r.resentaliun at tbe early stages of
the next assembly. A year or more ago
the C. P. R. went upon record as not being opposed to such a movement, provided Its Interests were treated fairly.
At that lime Mr. Bake:, who is one of
tbe large property owners here, stated
lhat although he opposed ihe movement
at that time, he would not do so a year
later. With the C. p. K. and Mr. Biker
agreeable, there would be Utile question
as to the majority ot other householders.
The second plan, of course, depends
upon the investment uf sufficient capital
to float such an enterprise, aud right at
this time that would probably prove
The third plan is feasible in every
way. The C. P. R. needs an immense
supply of water. To meet tbe demand
il has run a main from the creek, where
it has a pumping station. After this
was built, by way of accommodation, a
number of homes were supplied at a
reasonable annua! rental. So doubt if
pressure were brought to bear upon the
railway company, and the financial
phase ofthe question clearly presented,
showing the piobable cost, acd the income that would be virtually assured,
the authorities would become sufficiently interested to give the matter careful
consideration, and ultimately extend the
present system.
Tbat is the situation at the present
time and il is up lo tbe citizens. Do

An Imposition.
Last week the Rubinson-McKetiz.e
company were seeking the services of a
cook. One c»me from I'ernie but when
he arrived one had already been employed. Mr. Robinson then offered to

few days later,   however,   Mr. RoblDSOfl
was served with a summoni citing him
to appear  in  Pernie  to  defend a suit

cheaper for him lo have paid the de-

to I'ernie.    When   his   side of ibe case
wus -tnted in court judgment wus Immediately rendered in his favor and the
prosecution mulcted in the sum of fi2

This should serve as a lesson to lawyers who listen to tales of woe by irresponsible parties and make unnecessary

A number of the eastern members of
parliament were lo have come wesl this
summer on a tour of Inspection, but the
project has fallen throagh. This is too
bad. There Is a bunch of legislators in
thut part of the country who imagine
thnt Winnipeg marks lhe western line

But the crowning event was to be tho
annual bullfight, In which, Instead of
professional in at adores, young cabal-
leros, men of high social rank, were to
contend for the honors bestowed by
the fair hand of the queen of beauty.    I
Grent preparations had been made
for this special function, and long before the appointed hour the rose garlanded old amphitheater, where since
the flays of Cortca man nnd beast hud
met In nn uninterrupted series of unequal combats, was tilled to overflowing.
On ono side rose tier upon tier of
dark eyed senoritns, closely guarded hy
ever watchful senorns* on the other
side young bloods (lmelendndos), with
the tightest of trousers nnd broadest
of sombreros, heavily loaded with gold
and silver trappings, here and there

Iiy one

ii <.r ihis hit of daring, and
groans uml hurrahs rose again uml
ngnln from 10,000 throats as those two
struggled iu nn encounter unheard of
before In the history of bullfighting.
Hut never Blnco tbo days of Dram
has jealousy or desire for revenge, nor
love even, mulched human arms With
the strength of a bull, nml Enrique's
grasp must surety weaken.
To drop now was certain death beneath tho angry hoofs which bad pawed tho ground so that man and beast
were of Hie earth's color.
Then the young senor who, in tlie
role of mntndore, was to have dispatched this bull, enmo to hla work with a
coolness hardly less notable tbnn Enrique's (luring, aud braving tbe usual
disgrace of attacking the bull wben
not charging approached the pawing
animal, watched his chance and pointed tbo sword.
The bull, seeing a more feasible enemy, charged to his own death, For,
opening tlio fingers so that tlie hilt
rested iu tho palm of his hnnd, Don
Enrique so steadied It thnt the onward
impetus of the animal forced the keen
blade into the very arch of the aorta.
One moment, as If daring even this,
nnd over ho fell.
Don Enrique gave a bound over tho
neck and, alighting on bis feet, walked
forward to the queen to receive the reward for Ids daring for her sake.
Tlie crowd roared and howled and
stamped in its excitement. Beautiful
girls snatched off their silken shawls,
their flowers; cigars, bats, canes nud
handkerchiefs by the thousands came
In a shower into the arena.
But Enrique was all unheeding. Ho
wns looking for something more. Surely she knew lie hnd done it for hor

"No estn nqul." snlil the old man.
"lie is not hero.   His American aeno.
rlla and her father came for him this
morning, and they have just taken
themselves nwny on the train."
The disappointed anger on Enrique's
face did uot lessen any.
"I have left a remembrance for him,
When he returns, he will lind It, and

found Enrique's dagger driven to (ho

Mrs. James Oreer Misses a Oisallnc IO*
plusji-n It) a Close Maritin.
Mrs. James Greer, who is stopping at
Halcyon Hot Sprluga, writes Mr. Oreer
of a narrow escape she had one evening
last week. A party of guests at the
hotel were j*,,iuK for a ride on the lake
iu a gasoline launch to u point several
miles away, ll had beeu arranged to
ve at 7 o'clock, but the owner of the
launch told iliem that he would not be
ready to get away before 8 o'clock.
This did not suit a number who were
there for their health, as they did not
care to stay out too long in the night
lir, Mrs, Greer was among those who
lecliued lo gn, but a party was made up
of several gentlemen and gUU In the
hotel. When the boat had come about
a mile and a half ou the return trip, 0
sheet   of tlaiiie suddenly darled   out of
the engine and Ignited the dress or one
ofthe girls, who was at once 11 muss of
noes. In a freuzy of fear shejumpcil
into tbe lake, followed by one ol the
gentlemen. Fortunately tbey were near
the shore and the couple were aide to
get to land, but the girl was badly
burned. The engineer and two or three
of the passengers were injured by the
Humes. They all escaped in the siuiil1
boat behind and had not gotten mote
than 25 feet away when the engine exploded and completely wrecked lhe
launch. The party was taken out at a
point near where the accident occurred,
und did not get back to the holel until
the next morning. Naturally Mr, Greer
is feeling very good over llie fact that
his wife failed to be one of tbe unfoi-
t un ate party.

Oat Man Killed and Another Badly Injured
at I'ernie.
Fernie Free Press: Another sad fatality occurred at. Coal Creek nines
Wednesday morning last. Tbe uccident
occurred in what is known as Barton's
Heading, No. 1 tunnel. Two uien, A.
I). Ferguson and Ja ck McCauley, both
old ininers. bud been sent in to lay track
and warned that the roof was dangerous. However tbey seemed to have satisfied themselves that the roof was safe
as they started work without waiting to
timber the dangerous spot, according to
McAuley, wbo was slill conscious when
rescued, the roof fell without giving any
warning. Ferguson was directly under
neath and Instantly killed. McAul«-y
was ouly partly buried but received
frightful il juries, having his back broken aud one leg smashed at tlie thigh.
He was removed to the hospital where
Ors, Bunnell and Corsaii performed the
operation of setting the broken bones,
Tbe spinal cord seems to have escaped
injury, ami thc delicate operation of setting tbe broken bones and fastening iu
place with silver wire was successfully
performed. His condition is still critical mill it in doubtful  tf Le will war ra
cover the use of his legs.
Mr. Fullertou Married.
II. M. Fullertou, the traveling man,
is well known in Cranbrook where he
has a host of friends. Last Wednesday-
he surprised all of them by being united
in marriage to Miss Elton, of San Francisco. The Fernie Free Press gives the
following account of the wedding:
A very happy event was celebrated at
the Royal hotel on Thursday evening,
wheu H M. Fullertou, the well known
and popular traveller for Wilson Bros, of
Vancouver, was united in marriage lo
Miss M. Eaton of San Francisco, Cal.
Only a few ofthe most intimate friends
of the contraciing parties were present
at the ceremony, but Fernie turned out
en .masse on the street, and gave the
happy pair a royal send off. The band
was in attendance aud varied (be program by alternating Canadian and
American airs. The bride, though but a
short time iu town, bus become very
popular, her pleasing manners and
striking appearance at once won the admiration of the people, and all are mosl
hearty iu congratulating the lucky
groom, and wishing both every happiness. A sumptuous repast was served
at the Royal and the crowd dispersed to
the straius of "God Save the King."
Small Ranching.
The growth ol this district during the
next few years is going to make small
ranching a profitable business. The development of tbe coal and iron mines,
with the progress made on other mineral properties, and the consequent increase in every other line of business,
means that from Kitchener to Blairmore
there is to be a great population. This
will give an increasing market fur feed,
stock, chickens and eggs. There are
many places In the district where small
(anus could be successfully operated,
ami thc time will soon be here when
they will be iu demand. There is no
money iu the business, however, for Die
many satisfied with two or three acres of
grass and a dozen hem. Il will take
energy and business ability combined
The result will be big profits.
Important Move In Fernie.
A monster potitioti has been prepared
iu Fernie, asking that that part of the
district be set aside nnd that L. S.
Forbes, duel constable, be appointed
government agent and stipeudary magistrate, There is a good deal behind
this move, and the people of that towu
are determined to carry it through.
