Black Bear Mining Stock.
Others are doing it.
During the infancy of any enterprise   the   power   of   the
almighty dollar is simply omnipotent:   NOW is the time to
buy Black Bear.
When LeRoi was first stocked
a certain railroad   conductor
i bought  13000 shares at three
cents, a total outlay of $390.00
Three years ago he sold the
same shares for $65,000!
The sale of Black Bear stock
at 3 1-2 cents will dose on January 9th, after which date it
will be impossible to buy at
such low prices.

General French Wins the First British
The Next Few Weeks Will Witness Some Terrible Struggles
for Supremacy.
Boera Defeated by French.
Relishing, Cape Colony, Jan. i.—General French has completely defeated ihe
liners nml occupied Colesburg, The
general continued to keep Uie ltuers on
the move ond pressed tbem closely Saturday and Sunday, giving Ihem no time
to make n prolonged stand, and when
ilny broke he was within striking dis
tance of tbe enemy. Kast night all tbe
cavalry, artillery and infantry, llielatler
riding in wagons to increase Ibe general
mobility, started upon a night march
with the ohject of turning the Boers'
right. Tbe flank operations were successful. The infantry and field batteries
immediately made a feint attack on the
Boer front, and vhile tbis was pio-
oecdtug around tlie enemy's right flank
,is arranged. Tbe program worked
without a hitch. The Boers were utterly surprised and finding their retreat
threatened, fled in disorder to the east-
ward, leaving Colesburg iu General
French bauds.
Buller's duns Turned 0a Hint.
London, Jon. 2,—Tbe Standard's correspondent at Prere Camp telegraphs on
January i saying :
Sir Charles Warren's division is now
nearly completed. Us headquarters will
be at Kstcourt.
It is rumored here that the guns which
were captured from General Buller al
Colenso have been mounted in the hills
commanding the drift of the Tugela
river at Springfield. The Boers, it appears, captured 620 rounds of shrapnel
when tbey took the guns.
General Buller's difficulties have been
immeasurably increased by the enforced
delay since tbe last engagement. He
now bas before bim a series of walled
and fortified hill*-*, running sixteen miles
along the line of Ihe Tugela. These are
swarming with the enemy, posted in
positions of great strength and bristling
with gnus, while tlie river in front is in
full flood. The coming bottle will certainly be the stiff est and probably the
most momentous of tlie entire campaign.
Vancouver Men are Patriotic.
Vancouver, B. C-, Jan, r,—Considerable disappointment bus been caused
throughout this province by lhe failure
ofthe Dominion government to include
iu the second contingent regiment for
South Africa a company from British
Columbia. Prominent citizens of Vancouver have decided to raise a troop of
IOO mounted infaiilry, providing horses
and defraying all expenses.
At a meeting called by Mayoi Garden,
it was decided to try to induce the government to accept this corps. Three
hundred applications have beeu received from voting men of this city aud
districts All are skilled horsemen and
good rifle shots, and many oiler lo provide their own   mounts  and epuipmeiit.
Shells Drop In Lad) smilh.
London, Jan, i —Tlie fnllow'iig heliograph message has been received by way
ofWcenan irom Ladysmith, dated Wednesday, December 27:
"The Uoers are actively bombarding
the town. Oue shell struck the Devon*
1 hires, killing Cnpt Dafzetl and wounding seven lieutenants, Dent, Twiss,
Tiinghinu. Cuffy, Byrne, Seafe and
A later dispatch from Ladysmith hy
way of Weeiian, da led December 29,
says: "All well. The Uoers hnve been
liring plugged shells containing plum
pudding and the compliments of the
season. They nre still fortifying their
positions aud are evidently determined
lo muke a linn stand."
Knew Whal Me Was Talking About.
II is worthy ol note that from the first
Lord Charles Beresford asserted that the
war office was uot sending enough troops
to South Africa. With 120,000 preparing
to nail or already in the field, he reiterated his warning, ami called for still
more troops and more complete naval
preparations for any emergency. This
was before General Bullet's check at the
Tugela. Lord Charles Beresford ki.ew
what be was talking about when be said:
"The wnr is one of the biggest upon
which we Iihv-* ever embarked." The
war oflice is now addressing itself to its
work In the spirit to which he sought to
arouse it when the war began.
A Splendiml Surface Showing on liic
Pedro Property.
Steele Accepts.
Montreal, Dec. 27.—Lieut.-Col. Steele,
ofthe Northwest .Mounted Police, who,
with Mra. Steele, is spending Christmas
in Montreal, 1ms received a telegram
from Hon. Dr. Burden, offering him fhe
Mounted Rifles. The colonel immediately wired his acceptance of the appointment. Col. Steele said that his
impression was that tbe Mounted Rifles
would be divided iuto divisions, one consisting of the Northwest Mounted Police
and recruits from the Northwest and the
other consisting of cavalry regiments
east of Manitoba.
Considerable   Development   Work
Outlined    for   Properties
Near Cranbrook.
Pen i.
The directors of tha-JCoolenay St Algoma Mining company at a meeting a
few days ago, passed the accounts (or
(be work on tbe Pedro and were much
pleased with the report of A. W. McVittie' concerning the showing of thnt
claim. The report shows tbut the ledge
has been stripped for a distance of over
200 feet showing ore throughout, the
ledge averaging about three feet in
width and appears to widen with depth.
The ore is rich enough te ship nnd wilh
a proper equipment nf conceuttating
machinery, would pay handsomely. The
compauy has contracted to spend $Hix>
more in the spring in sinking and drifting on the ledge, and wben thc values
have been ascertained at depth there will
he no trouble about securing the ueees
sary cap'tal for the complete working of
the property. It has become evident
tbnt the Black Bear and the Pedro are
uu the same ledge, aad though tbey are
about one mile apart the show ol the
same ore on one property must benefit
the olher. Thus the magnificent surface
showing on tbe Pedro brighten the pros
peels of the Black Bear while the undoubted value of the ore now being
worked at a <?epth of nearly 100 feet on
the Black Bear is very encouraging to
the owners of the Pedro. It has been
decided to call a general meeting of the
stockholders of lhe Kootenny St Algoma
on the 13th of February of which due
notice wilt shortly be given.
Sand CreeK District.
Percy Bishop came up from the Sand
Creek district yesterday, and reports
matters In good shape there. A force of
eight men are at work on the Umpire,
and the property is sho wing up in a
most. HfUuftirtory manner.
The Bishop boys are now running a
uew tunnel on their property and are iu
about 100 feet, making altogether about
350 feet of tunneling on tbeir property,
ibe ore in the new tunnel is growing
better as the work advances, and the
genera] showing is better than it has
been before.
McBahne is 5*iii working on his crosscut tunnel, and haa run about ninety-
five or 100 feet, but has not yet reached
the lead.
It looks now as if there would be an
immense amount of work done in the
Sand Creek district ne xt season,
Among those who will do development
work is Mr. Boyer, foreman of tbe
Chickamonstone, who has some excellent properties on Little Sand creek,
about five or six miles north uf Empire
Copper Cliff.
The work on the Copper Ciiff at Palmer Bar which was suspended during
the Christmas holidays has been resumed
and two men are now at work sinking n
shaft on the properly witb ore showing
iu the ledge of sufficient richness to
tempt any mining man. The proof lhat
pay ore exists in the Palmer Bar-Union
Jack hill, will be of great benefit to numerous claim owners iu that vicinity. It
is difficult to believe {that so mnch ore
should Be showing on the sin face over
such a large extent of territory without
any adjoining body of marketable ore
existing, but so far the efforts ot energetic miners have failed to discover anything but the rich surface deposits, The
business-like way in which Mr. Steele
and his associates are going at tbe work
deserves success, and all owners iu lhat
neighborhood will be pleased if Ihe
showing ou the Copper Cliff continues
to improve with depth.
Theo Gold Copper
flining CompanyLimited
This company has been organized to operate the Excess, Copper Crown and
other properties.' There is a shaft on the Excess 63 feet in depth, and the showing
at this time is of a nature that places this property amonjj the best prospects in South
East Kootenay. They are situated about five miles from Cranbrook and Fort Steele
and one-eighth of a mile from the Crows Nest Pass Railway.

McCoy Detesti Maker.
New York, Jan. 1 —Kid McCoy again
placed himself in tbe championship class
by defeating I'eter Maher in a brisk,
well fought buttle of five rounds before
tbe Coney Island Athletic club this afternoon. The fight was scheduled to
last twenty-five rounds aud the purse
was to have been $20,000, but tbe alien-
dance was not so large as had been ex*
pected, and before tlie light was begun
the principals agreed that the winner
should receive the gross gate receipts.
The battle was hard fought from start
to finish, but McCoy was far the cleverer
man in ring tactics, dodging, side step*
ping and hitting powers. He showed
lltmself to be a good ring general, ever
watchful for an opening, and never fall
ing to take advantage of one,
Maher, although credited with being*

the editor of The Herald requested A. U.

This was done, and it was dine iu a

Reference is made to this m itter simply
to Sit this paper iu a proper light before
tbe people of Fort Steele, who may have
been misled by misrepresentations iu

no credit lor this act, for ft is the duty
of any newspaper to do the best it can
for tbe district in which it is published.
As a newspaper, it has not tho moral
right to discriminate against communities to satisfy tbe personal spite of one
or more individuals, aud The Herald is
pleased to stale that such a policy has
never been asked by the people of Cranbrook. The Herald believes in Soulh
East Kootenay, and in llie prosperity of
the lown-- in this district. tt has taken
this position from llie start, and will adhere lo il to the end. Yet, it thanks the
Moyie Lender for staling su plainly lhe

Get in line, everybody, and pull for

a whole is prosperous, the towns in the

Kemhle (wbo wanted to havo finished

Kemhle—J have n fairly good opinion
of her myself.
Mrs. BInir—And it is so convenient
thnt they ngree so well; the old dears

Mrs. Blair (tolerably successful in a

Kemble—Yes, it wns very absurd.
Mrs. Blair (her memory reviving)—
Pardon me, you were,

Kemhle—Clever is tho right word, it

"remorseless hand of fate" would hnve

Mrs. Blair—To sum up. we hnve been

Another Voice—Your husband is unl

When one observes the ill-dressed
