koodoo, Feb. 15—King Edward, ac-
rompanied hy Queen Alexandra, this
morning inspected at Buckingham Palace 350 oflicers nnd men of Strathcona's
Home, His Majesty piesented the regiment with the King's colors and gave
medals to the men. A detachment of
Guards held the lawn on tbe west terrace aud the Canadians were drawn ud
in front of (he terrace. The company
included Lord Roberts ia full uniform,
Gen. Buller, tbe Duke of Connaught,
Joseph Chamberlain, the secretary of
state for the colonies, Lord Strathcona
and Mount Royal, wbo organized Strath-
coda's Horse, and many army and court
oflicers. The royal standard was hoisted
over the palace by the King, wearing a
field marshal's uniform, and tbe Queen,
in deep mourning, appeared on the terrace accompanied by tbe Duke and
Duchess of Argyle, Prince Charles of
Denmark, and the Duke of Cambridge.
His Majesty shook hands with Lord
Roberts aud General Buller, and the
band of the Coldstream Guards played
God Save tbe King. Col. Samuel B.
Steele, of Strathcona's Horse, was presented to King Edward, wbo proceeded
to inspect tbe regiment. Returning to
the terrace the King handed a medal to
Col. Steele. Then tbe ollicers and men
filed past a table and the King presented
each of them with a medal. The King's
Colors were brought in by an escort of
Grenadier Guards to the foot of the steps
and His Majesty presented it to the
Canadian cavalrymen, saying tbat it bad
been the intention of his mother to present it lo the regiment and that be now
did so in her name aud in his own, The
color was borne to the regiment, the band
playing God Save the King. Afterwards
the Canadian: marched pant and the
King addressed tbe troopers as follows:
His Majesty's Address.
"Col. Steele, officers, uon-couiniission-
ed officers and privates: I welcome you
here to our shores on your return from
active service in Soutli Africa. I kuow
it would bave heen the wish ol my beloved mother, our revered Queen, to
welcome you. Alas! that was Hot to be.
But be assured she deeply appreciated
tbe services you have rendered as I do.
1 feel sure lhat in entrusting the King's
Colors lo you, Col. Steele, and those
under you, you will nlways defend it and
do your duty as you have done during
(he past year in South Africa, aud will
ilo so ou all future occasions. I aui glad
to kuow that Lord Slrathcoua is bere
today, as it is owing to htm that Ihis
magiiiik-ent force was equipped and senl
out. 1 can only hope your short sojourn
Knglnnd will be agreeable and llial
you will return safely to your homes,
friends and relations.    He  assured  that
ilbei 1 nor the British nation will ever
forget lhe valuable services you have
rendered in South Africa."
Col. Steele's Reply-
Col. Sleele, thanking the King on behalf of the regiment, assured bim that
tbe people of Canada would Jul wnys do
us well as Strathcona's Horse, if not bet
ter, and added that lhey were "always
n-n.lv in defend the (tug, tbe King, and
the rights of the British empire." After
three cheers fur llie King tbe officers
were presented to His Mi-ijesty, v ho
book hands with tuid thanked each one
of them.

London, Feb. 15—-The colors presented to lhe Strathcona Horse is a silk
standard wilh a silver plnle on the stall
beaiing an inscription showing the King

Businesslike Strsthconas.
Montreal, Feb. 15.—The Star's London cable snys: "Though the Strathcona Horte ouly landed this morning
they occupied places within aoo yards of
Buckingham Palace, the roof and precincts of which were crowded witb spec-
trtors. Among tbe troops lining the
royal route to tbe bouse of parliament,
tbe Strathconas, clad iu dark overcoats
with grey-colured hats, and carrying
rifles, looked businesslike and bronzed.
Tbey were In striking contrast to the
georgeously uniformed Guards. In the
interval awaiting tbe arrival of tbe royal
procession, the Strathconas were greatly
amused at a staff officer, witb an eyeglass
and cocked bat, wbo trotted past tbem
with an air of most superior idiocy. The
sun shone forth brightly, but it was bitterly cold. The Strathconas, regardless
of discipline, beat time wilb their feet to
keep warm.
Irish Will Flgbt the King.
London, Feb. 14 —Mr. John Redmond
in tbe course ot an interview in the lobby of tbe house of commons, said: ''At
the meeting of the Irish National party
today it was unanimously decided thai
In consideration of Ireland's present condition, deprived of constitutional freedom
and overtaxed by fingllsh rule, against
which we must tver protest, tbe Irish
members would takl no part in Ilie ceremonies inaugurating the new reign.
The resolution was unanimous.
"So intense is tbe feeling amongst us,
tbut lor the flrst time in ju years, 80
Irish members met In a united party in
Westminster today, They determined
on a vigorous campaign against ibe new
King. They intend not only to discuss
11 isl) questions, but -.o interfere in every
Britisb question which may arise."
THOUGHTS   ««
 AND FANCY
I.;.
../.,
Superintendent Bu*v, who now bas
charge uf tbe Crows Nest division, was
for a number of years
Believes In Of* private secretary to Sir
flcial Politeness William Van Home
when that gentleman
was president of tbe C. P. R. While
acting in that capacity be naturally had
to meet a vast number of people, and it
was during those years that he bad inculcated the idea of being courteous to
tbe public. "It is the duty of any railroad man, if be is holding a position
where he comes iu contact witb tbe public. They are paid to be pleasant, and
the public pay for all courtesies they receive. I will always tind time to treat
any man right that comes to me for information, and I will insist that every
man who works for me must do tbe
same." Such sentiments as these and
the carrying of Ihem to actual fruition, is
one of the factors that is giving the uew
superintendent such deserved popularity
in this field.
Jack Warduer, sou of the well known
James ti, Wardner, passed through Cranbrook   Tuesday ou his
Cold Winter      way   to   Chicago   from
Id Dawson        Dawson.   He had a few
moments to spare and
made a hasty visit lo The Herald office.
Speaking of Dawson he said they bad
had an unusual winter and that bis trip
out to Whiteborse was tbe hardest he
bad made during several years' residence
iu the Yukon,   He saw George Shier
just hefore be left, and at Seattle he met
Tom and Martin Crahan.   He expects to
return to Dawson iu u few weeks.   His
father is interested in  a big copper proposition in the Katcliikau country aud is
on the way to another big fortune.
James Cronin, of the St. Eugene miue,
was in  town yesterday.    Mr. Cronin is
one   of   those   sensible
[■reeling at        mine   * -vtiers who, bav-
•*5 Above ing done well iu Britisb
Columbia mines, is endeavoring lo take life 11 little easier. In
consequence, be generally spends bis
winters with his family in California.
Speaking ofthe cold weather experienced
tn the Kootenays this year, Mr. Cronin
said be saw more sulTering in San Diego
this winter with lhe thermometer at 45
degrees above zero thau he ever saw in
British Columbia during tbe coldest
weather. The people talked of the terrible cold, and walked around the streets
all muffled up aud shaking as if chilled
to the bone.
Referring to tbe coal supply of British
Columbia, lhe other day,  A. W. McVittie, who bas been large-
Brest Quanti-    ly interested in exploit-
ties of Cos)        ing  several  deals,  said
that the people have no
idea of the wonderful deposits of coal in
the   neighborhood of the   Feruie  coal
fields.   lie stated that there are tracts
of land there tliat  have  shown on careful examination and analysis lo hold deposits thai iu quantity  and quality  will
even exceed the wonderful mines of the
Crows Nest Pass Coal company.     He
Bays also that tbere is every reason to
believe that within five  years tbere will
he enough coal opened up to supply the
entire west for 50 to lco years.
THE   LAST    DANCE.
The Entrc Nous Club Closes a Very Successful Season.
The Kntre Nuns Hub closed its successful series of dances Monday evening by
an open session at Wentworth halt,
when about 40 guests were iuvited to
participate with the club members in tbe
last dance. The gentlemen were the
hosts on that oceasitn and right well
did they perform their part, ably assisted,
of course, by the lady members, who had
charge of the refreshments. The ball
was decorated in evergreen and the
club's colors, white and green, and presented a most pleasing appearance.
The grand march was inaugurated at
9:30, and not until nearly 3 o'clock did
the sound of music and merry voices die
away. Refreshments were served and
every arrangement was perfect. The
patronesses of the club, Mrs. Leitch and
Mrs. Costigan, have every reason to feel
proud of the success of their organization. It bas been a good thing for tbe
young people of Cranhrook, and a starter
for another organization of a similar
character for next year.
NEW   ST.   EUGENE   HOSPITAL
Description of This Institution Which Has
Just Been Opened.
Last Friday evening the St. Kugene
hospital building was formally opened
under tbe auspices of the Cranbrook
Ladies Hospital Aid society. A program consisting of songs .and addresses
was presented, and many kind words
were spoken for the Sisttrs in charge,
aud the great work lhey had accomplished in bringing to a successful issue such
a magnificent institution.
Mrs. J. R. Costigau presided at the
piano, and musical numbers were presented by Miss Finniss, Miss Flossie
Magee, Mrs. Reid, and short addresses
were delivered by Rev. Fortune, Rev.
flowering, John Hutchison and Dr.
King. Refreshments, consisting of
coffee and cake were served, and the entertainment closed with the national
anthem.
Tbe Ladies Aid society that bave
taken up the work of assisting tbe Sisters, now numbers no members. Mrs.
Costigan is president, Mrs. Brown vice
president, Mrs. Rogers secretary and
Mrs. Morrison treasurer. It is the object of tbe organization to do all in their
power to carry on the outside work and
impress upon lhe minds of the people
throughout the district the great benefits
to be derived trow having such a complete institution. They will, during lhe
coming year, devise means to raise fuuds
for the hospital, and they are anxious
that every lady in Cranhrook should be
identified with the work.
Tbe New Bulldlig.
The St. Kugene hospital,  which has
just been completed, ranks as one ofthe
very best institutions of its kind in the
building al some central point became
apparent When the necessity arose, of
course the next thing was to build, for.
wben lhe Sisters take hold of a work
they never fail to carry il to a successful
end.
The present site was selected, tbe land
being a gift from Col. Biker and bis son,
V. Hyde Baker, and work commenced
last summer on the new structure by Mr.
Navin, the contractor. With all speed,
consistent with good work, tbe building
was pushed forward, until last mouth,
wheu it was completed in every detail, a
magnificent monument lo the Sisters
aud the people of this district.
The main building is 4S by 72, three
stories high, and an addition 20 by 30,
with a veranda S by 50. There are about
30 rooms in all, and all are well lighted
aud have high ceilings, while the halls
are large and airy. The building is
plastered throughout and finished in
tamarack, oiled aud varnished, Kvery
conceivable convenience ts afforded.
Tbe house is heated by hot water, lighted
by electricity and tbe water supply is
secured direct from tbe C. V. R. pumping plant. The kitchen is large enough
to cook fur a regiment, with every uteu-
sil needed in the culinary line. On the
second floor are the dispensatory, the
operating and dressing rooms, all fitted
with every convenience. Tin operating
room is located iu tbe southeast comer
and cau be flooded with light, uight or
day. Dr. King, lhc physician iu charge,
says that it is one of ibe besl he bas ever
seen.
A walk over the building quickly
shows the stranger that the people of
ST. Rl'GENK HOSPITAL
Kootenays, and for ita size, there is not
a better equipped or more conveniently
arranged hospital in British Columbia.
As is well known to most of The Herald readers, the original hospital was
built at the Mission, five miles from
Cranbrook. For the time tbat answered
the purpose, but* after the railroad was
built and the population of towns along
tbe line began to increase, the need of 0
South Kast Kootenay are fortunate indeed to bave such an institution, where
tbe sick aud injured may receive the
best of treatment. The management is
in charge of Sister Mary, of Nazareth,
and sbe has six assistants, which number will be increased by the end of tbe
month, At the present time there are
20 patients, and there is comfortable accommodation for 40 or 45.
Died.
On last Saturday morning February
16, a baby girl was born to Mr. and Mrs.
R. E. Beattie. Both mother and baby
were doing well until this moruiug when
tbe baby begau lo fail aud soou died.
The parents ofthe little one who tarried
such a brief period on tbis earth have
the heartfelt sympathy of the entire
community.

SIXTY ENTOMBED ALIVE
A Horrible Accident in a Coal Mine
at I'nion City.
THERE'S NO HOPE OF RESCUING ANV
An Explosion in the  Mine  Closed
thc Shaft Cutting Off  all
Avenues of Escape.
THE  MINE  BELONGED TO DUNSMIRB
Vancouver, B. C, Feb 15 — Sixty-five
coal miners are imprisoned iu No. 0
shaft of the Cumberland coal mine on
Vancouver island. The only exit is tbe
mouth nf the shaft, which is tilled wilb
a bugb volume of flame. There is considered to tie no possibility for the unfortunates to escape. Details of tbe dis.ii-
ter are meagre.
Kescu. Party Was Helpless.
As soou as practicable after the ucci-
lent the men ut tbe morning shift in
No 5 shaft urgquized a rescue party.
No. 5 shaft is situ red about a mile tiom
No 6, but tbe two workings are connected by a tuunel and through ibis channel ou attempt was made to reach the
unfortunate fellows In the wrecked shaft.
Tbey had not cut tbeir way many yards
through the debris when tbey encountered tire, which rendered the place uu-
teuable and obliged the party to desist.
The hopeless message came back by telephone tu the surface conveying tbe
heart breaking news tu anxious relatives
of tbe imprisoned men whose urging was
not necessary io induce tbe relief party
to return to their apparently hopeless
task. Overcome at last by gas ami
smoke they reluctantly withdrew from
No. 5 aud commenced work oa a long
cut hum No. 4, tbe only other means uf
reaching the men. Work 011 tbis was
prosecuted with the greatest vigor until
au abatement ofthe fire in No, 5 enabled
them to return there.
All Hope Given Ip.
Vancouver, B. C* Feb. 16 —At No. 6

(core miners are entombed. Tbe colliery management are now fighting the
fire by flood. A special from Union late
tbis afternoon states th3'„ No. 6 ii closed.
Fire hose streams are pouring into tbe
No, 6 ihrougb a gutter constructed to
carry the water of an S inch main into
the mine. All the unfortunate miners
are still entombed. Pending the result
cf the flood no further action can be
taken. All hope had long since been
given up that any men in shaft No. 6
still lived.
SAND   CREEK   SIFTINGS
Railway News From Fort Steele.
The railway rumors in circulation and
the confirmation of some of tbem, has
awakeued much interest in Fort Steele
There seems to be no question but construction on some road will be commenced tbe coming sensou. One charter to build from Crawford Bay to Fort
Steele bears tbe earmarks of the Great
Northern's aggressive policy—in fact.it
is openly stated that this great corporation is bask of the enterprise. The
Great Northern will, without doubt,
build from some point ou the main line
to tbe International boundary, and will
also build through to Klko if a charter is
granted, It is also laid that a preliminary survey has been made from Black-
foot, Mont., east of tbe main range to
some point on tbe Crows Nest line. Tin-
object of this is obvious, as it will give a
down hill haul for the product of the
mines, both east aud west. Ii all of this
is accomplished there is no reason why
a road should not he built up the valley
to connect with the road fiom Crawford
bay, thereby perfecting the system ofthe
Great Northern in Kootenay, connecting
closely with thc Kaslo & Slocan, Kootenay Valley, Nelsou Sl Fort Sheppard
and the lines in the Lardo now operated
by the company. Iu addition to this a
road from Argeuta, at the head of Kootenay lake, into the Windermere couiilry
is one of the probabilities of the near
future. The scheme is a brilliant one,
aud will, without doubt, be carried out.
In addition to these enterprises for the
betterment nf the district, the Canadian
Pacific will probably construct the long-
talked-of uoith and south line, and if
the recoiinaisauce made Inst fall is followed it will bring the road practically
to Fort Steele.
It is difficult to obtain definite infor-
matiou regarding the plans of the great
corporations, hut enough Iih.s leaked out
to make it an almost certainty tbat one
or more of tllfSC rom Is will beconstiuc-
ted during the coming summer, which
will mean greater activity iu this district than was manifested during the
construction Of lhe Crows Nest Hue.
[from The HenU Correspondent]
William Langley returned from a visit
to Sand creek on Friday last. He reports considerable work going on in that
section. At the Waterfall Breckenridge
Sl Lund vave a small force employed.
The tunnel is now in no feet. There
has been a change in tbe formation and
small seam-, of talc, iron and quart**, are
coming in, which is a v.rong indication
that the lead is not far distant.
McBain and son are developing the
Beaver, the shaft is now down 35 feet
nnd in a crosscut at tbat depth the lead
has beeu encountered. The ore is copper, carrying gold, The work so far is
showing up the property in good shape.
Bishop Bros., the owners of the Jessie,
are engaged in developing that claim.
The tunnel is now in 230 feet, and in
prosecuting work a large body of quam
has been crosscut which will run well in
gold.
Tbe Bstella, it is said, is looking remarkably well. Late reports from the
pioperty are to the effect that if there is
a mine in the country it is tbe Kslella.
Captain McDonelt, formerly of the
mounted police, paid a visit to Fort
Steele last week. He came to attend a
meeting of the stock holders of the hm-
pire mine.
It is reported that a deal has been
coutummated ou the Blue Grouse, one
of the well known Sand creek properties.
Tha details of the transfer have uot been
made public.
SMALL   POX   NEAR.
Dr.   Pirber,   the   Dentist,  Is   the   Victim
at Fernie.
Word was received yesterday morning
that there was a case of small pox at
Fernie, and later it was given out tbat
Dr. Barber was the unfortunate. Dr.
King was in attendance, and he telegraphed to Constable Morris to have
Rev. Holford's home placed in quarantine, aa that gentleman In.d just returned
from Fernie where he had visited Dr.
Barber. This waa done immediately.
The Royal hotel, where Dr. Barber is living, is quarantined, with about 30 people. Mr- Sheppard, wbo went up to
take charge uf the station until the agent
got out of quarantine, went over to the
hotel, and it is reported, was locked up
also. Dr. King says there is not much
danger of the disease spreading if catc
is taken.

He say1* under such conditions the lead-
lilver mines of this province can compete with tbe world.
Cranbrook
CRANBROOK   IS   A   WINNER.
At no time has Cranbrook ha*l such
brilliant prospects as at Ue present
and at no time haa there ever been
such a feeling of confidence In the (
ture as prevails now. The people of
Craabrook have ever been workers for
their own good, and for the gooJ of tl e
town as a whole. Their policy has been
to do all in their power for Cranbrook
aad South Kast Kootenay, with malice
for no other town In the district, and
this policy has been a winner, lt has
won friends in all the towns throughout the district. It has caused people
la other communities to speak favorably
of Cranbrook energy and Cranbrook
liberality. It has prevented any bitter
antagonism on the part of other people
unless It he wltn those who might be
narrow and prejudiced In their views.
It has, altogether, had a most beneficial
effect and the results are apparent to
eveu the most casual observer.
Last year with no great corporation
to Invest thousands, witb no Industry
to swell the total, Cranbrook broke her
record In the amount of money expended ln Improvements. And the coming
year, If one nay be permitted to judge
by the present Indications, Cranbrook
is going to experience ber greatest
growth.
In fact, a review of the situation will
convince any one that the season ol
1901 is going to be the most prosperous
tba district of South Mast Kootenay
haa ever experienced. Tbere will be
more work ln the mines; there will be
more development of new properties;
tbere will be more work on the railroad
since construction; there will be more
trains running tban at any time in tbe
history of the road, and all of this
energy, tbis increase of men, this Investment of money, will contribute to
a greater or leaser degree to tbe prosperity aad growth of Cranbrook, the
natural, logical and business center of
these operations.
CraDbook Is a winner.
BUSINESS   IS   BUSINESS.
The extra expense to tbe government
In holding government offices at a point
twelve miles from tbe railway, ln a
year's time aggreate quite a considerable sum. The people of South Kast
Kootenay would like to see their con
t-ftQl-pnce considered. The time to do
that, Is the present. Cranbrook Is tbe
natural center of this district, uo mat
ter from what standpoint the question
is considered. The people of tbe dis
trict concede this. The matter now resolves itself Into a business proposition,
It la time to drop politics and
get down to business. It Is lime
to deal wltb tbe problem tn a
business like manner, and cease
to consider the desire of a few \w
dividual**. No government can afford
to permit a continual disregard of the
well known maxlum--the greatest good
to tbe greatest number.
There is only one thing to do. Give
tb* people of this district government
offices at some point on tbe railway, and
let that point be one that will be tbe
most coUTeutent to the whole district.
The tendency at the present time In
Caaada is toward governmental ownership of public utilities. Aud. U might
be remarked on the side, that such a
course is the only solution to the per-1
plexlng problems now confronting the |
people.
The people of Canada, if tbey so will,
can make Jim Hill, the Crows Nest
Coal Company, or any other "corpora-
tion, look like thirty cents. The people are the sovereign power, and the
sooner they appreciate the fact, the
better.

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
Several papers are suggesting Rep
raantatlre Galliher as a member ef
Prlmler Laurier's cabinet, In event of
British Columbia being given such an
honor. Mr. Galliher is ai able man,
and were he to be named for the position, The Herald predicts that be would
acquit himself In a most creditable
manner.

The Toronto Globe truthfully says
Anything In private hands, whether
a railway, a coal deposit, or smelter,
may be Canadian in thc morning,
American at noon and French or German in the evening. Capital does not
recognize political boundaries.
The time is rapidly approaching when
Cranbrook should be Incorporated,
There are many logical reasons for tbis

To see a class of people scaring away

Mr. T, Kde, real efitate and mining
broker, notary, etc., of Fort Steele, has
opened an office in the Quail Block, aud
is prepared to handle real estate and
mining property of all kinds.
Mr. Tuttle, of the Royal, as soon as
the frost leaves the ground, will erect a
three-story addition to the Royal Holel.
The new addition will have a frontage of
twenty feet on Victoria Avenue and will
overlap the present building. Mr. Tuttle
may be depended on to make the new
addition up-to-date in every particular.
Mr. Sherwood Herchmer, brother of
Mr. II. W. Herchmer, banister, reached
Fernie Ihis week and in the future will
make this town his home. He bas just
returned from South Africa, where he
went with the Second Canadian contin

Amos Buck, a miner employed in No.

that few men bave come through alive.
He lit a saltpetre fuse attached to a 16-
incb charge of giant powder in an upper
bole. After retiring and waiting what
he considered long enough for the blast
to go off, he came to the conclusion tbnt
the fuse had gone out, and walked up to
it, lit nnother match and was reaching
up to light it again wheu it went off.
The explosion loosened several tons of
coal and threw Ruck up against the
mine cars several feet away. Strange to
say, he was but little hurt considering
what he had gone through. One ear
aud the side of bis head is bruised and
bis right shoulder injured, but in a week
or so he will he all right,

| MINES   ft*ft*Ft
 AND MINING
The St. Eugene.
Nelson Miner:   James Cronin,  mnn
j ager of the St. Eugene mine at Moyie
was in the city over night en route to
Trail where he has business in connection wilb some ore shipments lo the
(smelter. Tbe Si. Eugene mill is still
! shut down and has been iu this condl-
j tiou for the past four weeks. The scarcity of water is the present cause of the
I stoppage of the mill. When the flume
j from Sunday creek to the mill was completed last fall it was believed lhat all
danger of shortage lu the water supply-
was removed, but llie loud cold spell upset all calculations and the property is
now confronted with the same conditions
hs existed last summer in the dry spell.
When Mr. Cronin left Moyie. the conditions were improving and he anticipates
that the mill will start at the ilrst ofthe
week. A contract hns been closed by
the St, Eugene people for lhe salt- of six
months run of the mill for delivery in
Germany, The concentrates which will
aggregate too tons per dny when the
plant is operating to its full capacity,
will be transported across the continent
lo Portland, Maine, transhipped ihcrc to
Antwerp atul then forwarded (0 one of
lhe German reduction works. Tin

Tbe Smeller Situation.
Nelson Tribune: Mr. D.ewry, in
speaking ofthe present smelter situation,
expressed himself as In favor of having
refineries established here at once. "Il
will bave to come to this, and lhe sooner
the better." said be. "Arrangements
are being made at the present time toward ihis end. The government should
give a bounty ou every ton produced,
nnd by so doing place us ou the same
footing as the American smelting and
refining companies. The bounty should
be granted for at least three year*. The
Dominion government has been petitioned nml no doubt some action will be
taken al the present session Tbe present number oi smelters Is sufficieul to
treat only 40 per cent of the a I er-lead
ores produced, but il proper legislation
was framed and the enterprise encouraged a number of new mullets would be
erected, when then tbere would be no
difficulty iu securing treatment for all
ores mined " He said a refinery would
probably be built at Trait. "If refineries are not built here," snid Mr. Drewry,
"the silver lead Industry will, in a short
time he paralyzed. The present trouble
is the cause of many silver-lead mines
shutting down, ns it is impossible to find
a market for their ore,"
In speaking about the money mn.ket
of eastern Canada, Mr. Drewry s aied
that it was very close, and thai very little money could be obtained for British
Columbia mining purposes.

Work at the Alice.
While on bis Kasl Kootenay tripT.
G. Procter inspected the work at the
Alice mine which he is developing In the
Itlteiesls ofthe York-Manchester syndicate, says the Nelson Miner. Development is now largely confined to a luuuel
designed lo lap the vein nt a depth of 250
feet. The lead should be encountered
at a distance of 500 feet of which 210
feet has been driven. Iu connection
with this a shaft has been started from
lhe upper levels lo furnish air to the
long tunnel. A carload of clean shipping oiu is sacked at the mine ami will
lie moved when the roads aie in better
shape. At present the Alice mountain
is bare of snow.
II mi nn Wanted.
Ottawa, Feb, id.—The lead miners and
smellers of Canada are arranging to
muke a request to lhe government for a
bounty of f, 1 per ton up to 100 tons per
day on pig lead produced in Canada,
The extent of the bounty in no case will
exceed ion tons per day.
Mining Notes.
Theru was a meeting ofthe slockhold
ers ot the Empire mine at Fort Sleele on
Friday   last.    The   business   transacted
was uot made public.
Work is progressing on the Anchor
properly at Kitchener, and as they approach the lead tbe prospects look
btigbter. It begins to look as if the company had a mine in that property. Ac*
tive development will continue.
John Hutchison has secured n bond on
the Copper Grant, the promising copper
property near the boundary, located by
M. Phillipps. Au assay from Trail
shows 23 2 per cent copper and f$ in
gold. Mr. Hutchison is negotiating with
a Boston syndicate that may take up the
properly. There seems to be no doubt
that there is a great copper belt along
that district, and that there will be some
rich properties developed in a few years.
