It is Stated That the Crows Nest
Line Will be Extended to
Nelson This Year.
Work te going ahead on tlie Ncrtli
Stnr branch, and outfits ami supplies are
being taken in   hs rapidly  as  possible.
Considerable difficulty te being experienced ui securing enough im-n, as lhe
demand fur labor throughout Canada
has largely Increased, Most of tin*

Nelson Miner: Work will be cotn-
menced Immediately on the construction
ol the Crows Nest line from Nelson to
Kootenay Landing, and within n year
trains will be running from bere to Kast
Kootenay points wilbout change.
The Miner some weeks ago said that
the C 1'. K. would proceed with tbe
work this fall and build from Nelson to
Balfour before winter. The delay in
starting was canst d hy negotiations
which were tinder way betwtcn the C. 1'.
R, and the Great Northern to allow the
former running powers over tbe hitter's
line from Nelson to Five Mile point, It
is understood that the negotiations missed fire, an there is no love lost between
the two big corporations and neither is
going out of its way to oblige the other.
So the C. 1*. R. will build iis own line
and fiom Nelson to Five Mile point will
have lo run partly on piles iu the lake,
as the Great Northern ia as near to thc
shore as a train can well run without
getting wet.
However, the statement that wotk is
to start immediately may be taken as
authentic, as tlie contract for supplying
tlie Umbel for tbe first twenty miles bas
been let to the Nelson Saw .V Planing
mill, which is now bringing in two
million feet of log's irom the south end
of Kootenay lake. The construction of
this piece of road will make Nelson very
lively this fall.

A Clean Show and a First-Class Performance.
Walter L. Main's circus appealed in
Craubrook lasl Friday as advertised.
Owing to the last of three sections being
delayed several hours, the management
was unable to give the usual parade, aud
the eveuing performance was the only
one given, Theie was a much larger
crowd present than was anticipated. In
fact, it is slill a question where ull the
people came from that tilled nearly
every seat in the tent. The shew was a
clean oue from beginning to end, aud
the acts presented were hy artists
Many new features were preseuted aud
nearly all of the old familiar ones, without which a circus would seem like a
Sunday school picnic. Craubrook people and all others of South Kast Kootenay. who attended the show, niay well
consider themselves fortunate to have
seen nn entertainment of that magnitude in a new country like this.

Accident al Ihe Sullivan,
The accident at tbe Sullivan property,
details of which were not obtainable lasl
week, point to a serious affair. Peter
Hanrutty had his leg and arm each
broken iu two places, aud Pat Redmond
was badly cut up. It seems lhat before
going to dinner several shots were tired
in the bottom of the shaft, the report
from which was distinctly heard After
tinner Ilanratty and Redmond went
lown the shnft to resume work ; noticing oue hole which had apparently shot
without breaking rock, they concluded
to drill it deeper, wheu au explosion
took place wiih the result mentioned.
The fnll extent of Ilauratty's injuries
were uot usveriaiued, aa il is possible he
may be injured internally. He was
taken to Kimberley, a distance of two
aud one-half miles, on a stretcher, aud
Dr. King, of Cranhrook, was called.
Redmond was not badly hurt. Superintendent Houghton did everything in his
power for lhe sufferers. Hoth men were
old miners, but su, posing the hole bad
shot did not test it, as is customary.
Oue theory advauied by an old miner is
iimt one of the shots blew lhe collar and
primer from the other, and the report
was the same as thuugh the shot bad
gone off. although under such circumstances the report is sharper than ordinary. Ilanratty was taken to St Eugene hospital where he is doing nicely
and will soon be all right.
Men Wanted.
Men wanted to cut about 20,000 cedar
posts.     Good timber.     Price 3 cents.

The Herald has been under tbe impression that there was a paper pub
liahed at Fernie, but as no copy has

weeks we have come to the conclusion
that we were mistaken.
Maybe They Do.
Referring to the general appearance
of that town, the I'oit Steele Prospector
says: "The lack of paint gives to the
town an appearance of uncertainty, as if
the owners expected at any time to pull
up stakes and depart for new fields,"

The Umpire mineral claim was bond
ed last week liy Chas. Rstwere, nf Kim
berley. An agreement lias been arrive
at by the owners and Mr. Estmere. bj
which the latter is to form a compaiij
for the purpose of developing and work
ing the claim, and the owners receiving
a certain amount of stuck iu the com
puny Un their property. This will aihl
another good property within reach ol
the smaller investors, Tlie Empire,
belter known hs the "Major Steele ptop
erty," is situated OU Sand creek, two
and (iut- li.iii miles fiom Cranston, on
the Crows Nest Pass railway.      It is one
of the oldest and best known properties
in East Kooleiiay, The property came
into considerable prominence in 1898
when the Halls Mines syndicate, of Net
sun, bonded lhe Blue Grouse, AU adj.lining claim, with the expectation of seem
ing the Empire as well. Though a great
ileal of money was spent iu tr> iug to secure the Empire for the syndicate, an
sgreettient was never arrived at. as the
owners were determined to retain an interest in the property.    Their price on
the properly was $45,000 for a three
fourths interest, placing a total valuation of $60,000 on the property Owing
to the inability of the parties Interested
lo secure the entire interests in lhe Em
pire, the bond 011 the Blue Grouse was
dropped after running n crosscut tuunel
for 2tn feet in order to tup the vein at
depth near the boundary line of the two
claims. The Empire vein is one of the
few large ledges which one can walk
upon without having to hunt for it. The
mountain has been scored off, is free
from all wash and slides, exposing a
vein for a distance of about 6S0 feet,
from 25 to 40 feet in width, carrying copper values all through the lead, varying
from S.36 per cent coppei, 9 ounces silver, trace iu gold, to 33 79 per cent cop
per, 37 6 ounces silver, $-t 90 in gold
The ore is a chalcopyrite, and is a very
desirable smelting ore Tbe property
has great advantages, in its proximity lo
the Crows Nest Pass railway, ease of access, unlimited water power and plenty
of good timber for mining purposes. Mr
Estmere is fortunate indeed to secure a
property like this to place before the
public. He expects to have tbe Empire
Mining compauy, limited, in working
order wilhin four or five weeks from
date. In conversation with a Herald reporter Mr. Estmere said: 'I have secured lhe Empire and am going to atock
lhe property. In order to get llie treasury of the compauy on a solid footing I
shall begin selling treasury stock while
the company ts being organized. All
monies are paid into the Cauadian Hank
of Commerce in Cranbrook until the
company is organized, so the shareholders take no risk whatsoever. Tliis is
done in order to get a winter camp iu
shape on the property before the snow
falls, and the season is getting pretty
well ou. I am satisfied the Empire will
pay large returns for money invested in
Kates or Ftrc Protection.
Tonight at H o'clock a meeting will be
held at the townsite ofiice by the subscribers to tbe Dominion Day fund, to
take action as to the disposal of the surplus, amounting to $175. A full attendance Is requested, as the action taken
tonight will be final.
Ual Thief and Money.
Mr. Anderson, a young man about
twenty six years of nge, who was junior
clerk in the Winnipeg branch of Mol-
sons bunk at the time the Institution
was robbed of $63,000 has been arrested
on the charge ul committing the theft,
nnd $611,000 ofthe money recovered.
The Herald Mineral Cabinet.
The Herald is securing some fine mineral specimens from various claims iu
this district. Any claim owners who
have inn thing of the kind they desire to
have placed in tbis cabinet should bring
it to The Herald ofiice where it will be

School Will Open Monday.
The Craubrook school will open in
Miner's old store room next Monday.
ti. J. Dutton, of Nelson, has been secured as the teacher. He arrived last
week expecting to commence his work
this week. The delay was caused by
the necessity of making certain lm*
pioveuieuns iu the school room.
The new Catholic church is rapidly
nearing completion, and will bt* a handsome looking building when finished.
Moyie Mines.
Tbe town of Moyie te now on the road
to prosperity as a permanent mining
cfiinp. New houses, stores and hotels
are heard of in all directions, and the
presence of numbers of miners engaged
for the work in the St, Eugene and Lake
Shore gives the place au air of business.
The concentrator being erected by the
St. Eugene company is an Immense
building and will need probably 300
men at work in the mine to keep it supplied with ore.   The wire tramway from
the mine to tbe concentrator is under
construction ami will shortly be ready
for the carrying of ore, so that within a
month this property will be workings
full force of meu and shipping daily a
tonnage that will Compare favorably
with the great West Kooleiiay mines.
The Lake Shore mine has installed au
air compressor plant, and on Tuesday
eveuing blew the whistle for the first
time, A number of Moyie citizen.! were
down al lhe compressor building and
the first pull at lhe whistle wire was
given by one of the la lies. Time will
now be regulated by Mr. Drewty's watch
and whistle. This company has secured
lots and is building a large hoarding
house to accommodate fifty meu. There
is already built a fine commodious office.
Active work wilh the machine drills will
commence at once, a number of miners
having been sent in from Kossland, and
others will arrive as soon as the compressor is working.
Six men are working on lhe Society
Girl under Charlie I-'arrell's direction.
They have struck very hard rock in
their tunnel, but expect to reach the
ledge in a distance of about auolher
forty feet. The Society Girl will probably be another large shipper before the
next year's snow falls,

Numerous prospect? are being tested
in the vicinity, but no important strikes
are as yet announced.
A Strike On the Sullivan Property.
J. Houghton, superintendent of ihe
Sullivan property, was in town this weik
on business connected with his company.
Mr. Houghton recently came from West
Kootenay where he was connected with
the Lily May, Poormaii, Commander and
other well known properties, Since tak-
ng charge of the Sullivan property be
has bean doing i*uitc a little prospecting,
ind about lwo weeks ago discovered an
jutcrepping on the Hope, and considered
t worth Investigating, and two men
were set at work. As a result a strike ot
very rich carbonates was made, that as-
says f.v o, and there is about ten feet ol
it. The two men have taken out about
So tons, and it started at the grass toots.
K Nickel find.
Hub Dore, the veteran of Wild Horse,
bus made a discovery of nickel on the
Wild Horse tbat gives promise of developing Into a valuable property. The ore
mystified Port-at first, and it was assayed two or three limes before its tun**
worth was discovered. It tuns ul* per
cenl nickel, and tbere is h 41, fool vein
oi It. Mr Dore things it rather Strange
that 3 ■ years ago he was digging gold on
the Wild Horse, and now he is still there
digging nickel.
Movie   Leader:    'lhe whistle   ofthe
Lake Shore an compressor will he heaid
about next Tuesday morning,'' said Manager J. C. Drewry. last evening. "The
delay in gelling the machinery in place
baa been somewhat longer than we anticipated, bul now everything is in readiness to commence operating the mine in
■stematic manner." This week Ilu*
plant was enclosed in a good sized huild-
Ug with a corrugated iron roof, and the
flume and the water tanks were completed. Carpenters are now working on
the ore bin near the railway, and finishing the long trestle leading thereto.
James McMillan, who is working n
property on Little Sand creek, is getting
some fine showings.
McBane and son are drifting in on
their property with the idea of crosscut-
ling the various ledges lhey have encountered.
Bishop Brothers are still working on
their propertv. They have put in abost
2x0 feet of tunnels, and have every reason to fee! confident of their prospects.
The bonding of the Empire property
is good news for Sand creek people. Jt
means greater recognition for one of the
very best districts in East Kootenay.
A gre.it many prospectors have been
in here this season, and some fine locations have been made.

Paul Johnson, the designer of the Halls

C. D. Porter, of Spokane, and J. W.

There arc several errors in tlle above,
the principal one being that tlle whole

nothing of the kind ever took place.
Hut is serves its purpose, since il brings
to hiiihI the action of the Fort Steele
board of trade a lew weeks ago, which
was, without a doubt, the richest piece
of unconscious humor ever perpetrated
iu Kast Kootenay. Like the three
tailorn of Toole street, a few members of
the hoard met in solemn conclave, ami
with serious iiit-in passed resolutions
directing the C 1'. R. lo muke surveys
without delay from Fort Sleele to the
North Star district. 01 course no attention wns paid to the silly action, but on
the contrary the road was ordered constructed, as had been intended, from
Cianbrook, and that work ia uow iu
progress as the Prospector knew wheu it
published its screed. The report that
the work had stopped entirely, as published in outside papers, no doubt emanated from the Prospector ollice, as the
telegrams all bore the Port Steele date.
The heBt way to secure news of ruilroads
and railroad building, is to secure the

Cure of
Perhaps you'vn Miflercd with constipation for years, tried all the pills and pur-
gal ives you ever heard or read of, without
getting any more relief than the one dose
oi the medicine alTorded.
Then you were left worse than before,
bowels bound harder than ever, the con-
■tipatton aggravated instead of cured.
All the miseries of constipation—Headache, SickStomarli, Biliousness, Pimples,
Eruptions, Blood Humors, Blotches, Piles,
and a thousand and one other ills crowded
backon you again wiih redoubled severity,
Wouldn't you consider it a blessing to
be cured of your constipation so that It
would stay cured? So that a repetition of
all tbe suffering you have endured would
never come again? Burdock Blood
Bitters can cure you—cure so thai tbe
cure will be permanent.
That's where it differs from all other
remedies. It makes a thorough renovation ofthe whole intestinal tract, tones
thc bowel wall, acts on thc liver and
stomach, and causes all the digestive and
secretory organs to so work harmoniously
and perform their functions properly and
perfectly that constipation, with all its
attendant sickness, sulTeringandill health,
become a thing ofthe past.
Miss Arabella Jolie, living at 99 Carri^re
Street, Montreal, Que., bears out all wc
say in regard to tbe efficacy of Burdock
Blood Bitters in curing constipation permanently.   Tbis is her statement:
" Kor'ovcr a year I suffered a great
deal from persistent constipation and

various remedies I tried until 1 started
using Burdock Hlood lib lors.  1 am thankful 1 osay that this remedy
