The Herald & Printing
That the mines in the vicinity of Cranbrook are now developing Into greal producer*, aa waa predicted by the Herald
nearly two years ago, and attracting wide
attention throughout tlte mining world
is an indisputable as well ns gratifying
fact. The combined output of the North
Star. St. Eugene and Sullivan mines will
now approximate 15 car loads a day-
equal to a full train-load with the light
engines in use on the Crows' Nest line.
Superintendent Parker, of the North
Star, was in Rossland, recently, and was
interviewed by n representative of the
Rossland Miner, as follows:
" Mr. J. L. Parker, superintendent of
the North Star, is ln the city on a visit,
and will remain for several weeks looking after hla private business. The
North Star, which be took charge of
last October, bas been shipping to Great
Palls, Mont., for the past two months,
He said: 'About 75 tons per day ate being shipped. The ore averages about
$63 to the ton. It Is a silver-lead ore,
averaging 55 per cent lead, and the balance of Lhe values In silver. The wine
is now paying a handsome profit and
will continue to do so, as there'is 16,000
toss of ore in light. The-eastern and
western boundaries of the ore shoot are
not fully determined. There ia a strong
probability that the new strike will contain more ore than the old one. which
was considered good enough to capitalize the company at 11,500,000. Thevalue
of the mine has, therefore, been nearly
exactly doubled by the new strike. The
possibilities of finding other ore bodies,
in following the plans of development
since Mr. Frank Robbins took charge as
manager, are boundless. I consider that
the North Star is one of the beat proper*
ties in British Cola-mbiaj and I doubt
whether any other mine in the province
has more ore actually In sight than bas
the North-Star.   ....
Mr. Robbins,who bas been the consulting engineer of the company in the past.
has now assumed the actual management
of the Norlh Star, and now resides at the
thine. While being the consulting engineer, he has really been Uie manager,
although not In fact until-receutlv-
" The w»g* -scale was recently raised by
the management of the North Star, and
is the same as in force and effect in the
Slocan. Tbe miners are pleased with
the advance, and mutters are running
along'on a-satisfactory basis at the in ine.
In fact we -sever have had a-a-f labor
troubles Ihete.
' **. A five drill compressor haa been installed and is giving gootl satisfaction.
The air is used for three drills and also
for the pump iu the shaft.
"The Sullivan, which la about four
miles from the North Star, is being rap-
Idly developed by the old LeRol crowd.
They have aboat fifteen men at work.
There is a great showing of ore on the
"The Black Hear, at Kimberley, is being developed by Mr. Charles Kstmere.
This property is reported a good one.
" There Is considerable talk about thc
St. Mary's-country. ■ In fact, most ofthe
men winking at the North Star have
prospects there and work during the winter and look after theirclaiuisdurlugthe
summer. I have talked with these men
and from the great faith which lhey
'-show these properties must be worth
looking Into, ot lhey would network the
way they do in order to hold their
"Mr. Pollen,sLondon man,has bond*
-ed seven or eight claims up there, and
has been working a force of men this
-winter. He haa been tbere the past two
years and is a good mining man.
Some of the meu have claims in the
Windermere country, and acem to think
■well of them.
The St. Eugene ia now employing
.150 men, and la oue of the great properties in the vicinity of MoyL:. A 35» ton
per day concentrator has been built,
nnd Is lo be operated shortly. Messrs.
Gooderbain & Blackatock of Toronto,
-and Mr. J. C, Drewry of this city, are
largely interested In the St. Eugene. It
Is considered to be a very large and a
promising proposition, and the parties In
control are pushing ita development with
a great deal of energy.
"The snow haa been on the ground
•vet since I have been in Kast Kootenay
and tbia limited my observation, but from
what X have seen of It I consider it to be
a good mining country."
Another ''Labor Knocker."
The Le Roi, In West Kootenay, Is operating a limber leaner, which is something of a wonder in ita way. It does
the work, it is claimed, of about 12 timber (ranters, (men). Tbe timber is put
in the framer-f and in an incredibly short
lime it has a nice tenon upon it Tbis Is
UhefiiBt machine of the kind ever used
>In  British  Columbia.    It costs  about
St. Eugene siding ready to be shipped to
the smelter. Thia is from the first ore
pnt through tbe new mill. Tbere are
tome changes to be made in tbe siding,
but the work of a few more days more
will finish this job. The mill is being
run at nights for the present in order
thnt the carpenters may woik on ll
while it is shut down during the day.
The mill now runs at its full capacity
and grinds out 125 tons of ore during lhe
13 hour shift. The electric lights are
working Bplcud-dly.

Wu Succcsilally Orfaaiitd With a Good
Membership Tuesday Night.
Tbis association completed its organization laat Tuesday evening and elected
the fottowing gentlemen as officers:
President, Dr. J. II. King} vice president, A. W, McVittie} secretary and
treasurer, John Hutchison; governing
committee, R. K. Beattie, J. W. II.
Smythe, Dr. P. Green and P. Rankin.
The club rooms will be on the second
floor of the Watt block where ample
room will be afforded for the purposes of
an organization of this kind, as well as
being situated In a most central location.
The advantages of an organization of
this kind ar? too manifest to require elucidation.
The club started out with a membership of 35 which will soon be increased
to 50 persons. The club rooms will probably be In charge of Charles Kates, who

A Cat-aatropfae levolvlog Two Pels, Wherein
ths Cat Didn't Come Back.
Tom Wellman has a dog—so have
others, but it Is of this particular dog,
Barney, that we have to relate. Tom
swears by Barney, possibly At him sometimes, bnt others do the most of the
latter. The other day Barney came
home without his collar and wearing a
kind of fatigued expression-«-all the
same tome men wbo have been attending
a late session of the "lodge" or " club."
Tom missed the collar and arrived at
the conclualon tint someone had separated tbedog and the collar with felonious Intentions, so he offered up prayers
of thankfulness for the safe home coming of Barney and -invoked—'1 invoked"
looks better in cold print, you know-
all aorta of maledictions upon tbe head
of the cbllarer of the collar.
Time squares all things, and it was
not so very long after thia little happenstance before Barney returned- one day
from a round of social calls, and was
-again inside of his collar. And firmly
tucked between the collar and his neck
was the following neatly written notelet:
Cranbrook, April 19.
Will you please keep this dog at home
as he killed our cat, and I do not want
hlm here any more.   Resp'y Yours.

Mr. William Wilton, who unfortunate*
ly cut himself ou the knee with a broad-
axe several weeks ago, is the. patient
whose leg Dr. King amputated at SL
Kugaue hospital recently, instead of an
Indian, hs unreported- in the Herald
last week. Mr. Wilton Is the father of
Mrs. A. Sheppard, of this place and
highly esteemed by his acquaintances,
whose sincere sympathy he has iu his
great affliction. Dr. King, who performed the operation, says that Mr,
Wilton la convalescing.
The Losl Wasn't Losl for Keeps.
McCtclIan. the tie contractor, who recently disappeared bo unceremoniously
from Jaffray, hus been seen, it is alleged,
both at Klko and Pernie,-all right and
apparently a very much alive corpse. It
is also alleged that he told au oflicer at
Ferule that he would return as soon as
he could straighten hit financial, affairs.
For ■ Church Bell.
Father Ouellette will solicit subscriptions to aid in the purchase of a bell for
use on St. Mai) 's church. There is not
a church In Cranbrook lhe happy possessor of a belt. In addition to being of
use for devotional purposes, it would be
of great benefit for sounding an alarm
in case of fire.
The Premier Teatfftt.
The premier of British Columbia, the
Hon. Joseph Martin, aa previously an*
nounced, will address -the citizens of
Cranhrook at Forrest hall tonight.
There should be a good attendance, aa it
is only fair to hear MnMartin's side of
tho political battle now being waged.
Evidently a Gang Who Have Been Operating Along the Une.
Had Broken Open A Sealed Car
Loaded with Merchandise
ior Kimberley.
Last Saturday night, as Tom Rookes
was pensively sitting in liis. pen in the
office of the Cranbrook hotel, rehearsing
his "gags" for Monday night, a man
entered, and after peering cautiously
around very confidentially asked Tom if
tbe house did not want to buy a case of
eggs; he said they had bean picked be?
fore ripe and would keep, intimating that
he would make lhe price ap low that the
Craobrook could set 2 bit meals at an
enormous profit. Tom, smelling a rodent instead of eggs, lold the fellow, iu
that hypnotising manner of his, that he
would take an invoice and see how eggs
panned out; if he would return in about
au hour negotiations might be
resumed. Au hour elapsed, the fellow
returned and brought the eggs; Constable Dow was conveniently by ahead of
him, however, and in dne lime appeared
ou tlie scene; he told the fellow the uight
was chilly and Hint the Hotel Morris bad
an eggstry room on the ground floor that
would be placed at hia disposal; he accepted. The CouBtable then went to the
yards nnd found that a sealed car containing merchandise for -Kimberly had
been broached. Little had been taken,
although three men were concerned;
the plan-was to-sell the goods, then get
and deliver them. It is thought they
otepartof a gang who have been operating along the line. Monday the prisoner, who gave the name of Alexander
Fraser, was sentenced by Judge Arm-

The following excerpts from .the police
court reports of the Penile Free Press
will give people an idea nf tbe class of
laborers—a new and undesirable class—
which will henceforth be in considerable
and incieasing evidence iu the labor and
also criminal affairs of British Columbia.
It is no exaggeration to make the broad
statement that no more -objectionable
class could -become established in the
province.   The Freo Presa says:
"The stabbing affair reported in the
last Issue: was ventilated. In. the police
court on Wednesday and Thursday before J. P. Armstrong. S. M. Mr. J. II.
Harviy, of Port Steele, appeared as
Crown prosecutor, while Mr. II, W.
Herchmer defended the prisoner. The
case took up a lot of time aa all the evidence had to be gone- over through an
interpreter. The prisoner, Zebih, waa
sent up for trial, but the magistrate in
committing him Beverely censured Hume
lor his part in the affair, for it waa quite
evident that  he   was  very -much  to
Another of tbo flame.
" Ou Saturday evening another cutting
affair took place in a shack near the coke
ovens. In this case the troubleseems to
have arisen out of the strike at the coke
ovens. John Solus, a Slav, was oue of
the strikers but had goue to work again,
For so doing, he claims that Mike Dor-
kin, another Slav and a striker, started
abusing him. During the wrangle Solus
had beeu cutting tobacco with a pocket*
knife, and claims (bat Dor-kin struck at
him ond he threw up his hands to de
fend himself, when Dorkin received a
gash about seven inches long In the left
forearm. Dorkin, on* his part, claims
tbat Solus made a thrust at him with his
knife and that be put np bis arm to
shield his breast and received tbe blow
in the arm. Another Slav also swore
that Solus struck at Dorkin with a knife.
The magistrate considered tbe evidence
sufficient to convict, and sentenced Solus
to three months in the common jail at
Nelson, with hard labor. Mr. Hatvey
also prosecuted in this case.
Still Another.
On Sunday night a third case of stabbing occurred this time up at tbe mines,
Thia one seems to have been -over 1 a
woman. Frank Brisco, a Slav, has been
living with a woman who is not hia wife,
John Batsho, another Slav, wanted the
woman. He went to Brisco's on Sunday
night, found Brisco in bed with her, and
at once started to carve him np, but was
too drunk to do much Injury, the main
cut being alongside the right eye, about
two .inches long,-with several statelier
gashes on tbe body. Bateho, on the advice of hla counsel, pleaded, guilty and
was let off with two months in jail wiih
hard labor. Mr. Harvey prosecuted and
Mr. Costigan defended.

Clothing prices cut squarely in two.
The man who is unsuccessful in business
is obliged to see some one else almost
give his goods away, and. the buyer is
the one who profits. In addition to their
own large stock, Hill Bros, are placing
the Maggs & Hughes stock of clothing
on their shelves, and they can't afford to
let it stay there. In consequence men's
$15 suits go (ot $ 7.50; fio suits for $5 00;
$2.75 boy's suite for ft 37^, etc. Odd
pieces at any old price. These proportionate prices will be made on alt clothing. Rather tough, but the dealer, who
acquires too large a stock has to stand
the consequeuces, and tne wise purchaser reaps the benefit. Sacrifice clothing

week, and all other goods at very low
prices in the meantime.

There can be little if an? doubt that
iu a short time lhe Sullivan, situated
northwesterly from Cranbrook, iu the
North Star district, will become one of
the greatest silvei-Iead mines in British
Columbia, if not on the continent This
conclusion a Herald reporter bus arrived
at after au Inspection of the property.
Nobody can see iulo the ground, hut the
fact tbat tbe formation at present is perfectly so'.id and thai tbis mammoth
ledge—asit now appears io be—will " go
dowu" eventually, is evidenced as «i r-.
proceeds by lhe fact tbat it shown a disposition to straighten up, the dtp now
being 45 degrees as compared with 20
at flrst.
A Massive Body ci Clean Ore.
Ore, ore, ore—ote everywhere. Fifteen
meu, not five.as erroneously reported in
Rosslaud, have been at  work  all winter
u the Sullivan on development under
the direction of Supt. Birds-all, a practical as well as theoretical miner, who is
apparently the right man in tlie ri^ht
[place, a loug experience in the mines
of the United Slates, as well as other
countries especially fitting him to cope
with the somewhat unusual conditions
prevailing in the Sullivan.
In tbe north drift the miners are completely enveloped by clean, solid galena.
At a distanceof 65 feet iu lhe drift un
tlie No. I level, it is still ore, 6x; feet,
and how much mote is as yet undetermined. There is a backstope of from
300 to 400 feet, solid ore to the apex;
lhe width of this ore body bas so far
been demonstrated to be from 7 to 30
feet of clean galena, with but one wall
encountered in a distance of 46 feet; in
ibis distance there would remain from 16
to 39 feet of good concentrating ore.
The clean ore in itself, however, is a
body of mineral wealth equalled by bnt
very few known to ibe mining world.
In the No. 4 shaft a depth of 60 feet
has been attained; work hid to be discontinued for a time, however, on account of an inflow of surface water; in a
short time it will be resumed. In tbis
shaft there is seven feet of clean ore at
present, and lhe end not yet found. The
ore lies iu a monocline or terraced form,
and has an average dip of about 40 degrees, and as depih increases inclines
more and more to the vertical. It is the
intention of Supt. Birdsall to go Ihrouj-h
this ore, siuk a sump, and then follow
tbe ore, which has a northeasterly dip.
Shipments sad Valaes.
The management has mvle a contract
for hauling tun tons of ore to the railroad, to go out at lhe average rate of a
car-load per day. A siding is being
pnt in on the North Star branch, and
Supt. Birdsall says the C. P. R. Company
is showing a disposition todoeverytbing
reasonable to facilitate the shipment of
ore from tbe mine.
The average value of tbis large, solid
ore body is n bout f-45 per ton.
An Air Compressor.
In about six weeks a 7-dr.ll air compressor will be installed. This will insure much more speedy development,
and the North Star branch will be kept
very busy hauling ore before lhe clow of
Ibe summer season, wiih iwosuch mines
as the North Star and Sullivan to supply
As has heen reported, the "Old he
Roi crowd," or a portion of it, is developing the Sullivan. Those knowing the
mining history of that crowd, knows
that any proposition taken bold of by
them means success, it the ground holds
the inalen.il   to   make   success  out of.
That crowd made a mine out of the
I.ekoi under very adverse condiiioni,
and the development of tbe Sullivan in
comparison will be as child's play for
The Sullivan compsny have been of
substantial beuefit to Cranbrook also,
arid benefits from that source will continue to increase and accrue. Kvery-
lllilig possible to purchase at Cranbrook
to be used at the mine has been bought
bere; hence it follows tbat tbe immediate vicinity as well its Ibe entire country
will profit through tbe Sullivan's becoming an additional producer.

Moyie Leader: Since it baa become
known that J, C. Preivry of Moyie wasa
possible candidate for the legislature
from Soulh Mast Kootenay, the people
have become neutrally interested in the
mntler. They recognize lhe importance
of having a candidate ftom Moyie, and
believe Mr. Drewry to be the right man
Mr. Drewry will return lo Moyie about
Mny t, when in nil probability he will
decide lo run. If he decides to run
there is tin question but Moyie will go
solid fur liim and he will gel his share of
tlie votes in the other portions of the
disliict. Drewry isafHvorile wilh the
people nnd would ht* a winner. A large
number of the representative chizeus of
Moyie, consisting solely of voters, nut
this week for lhe purpose of,selecting a
representative. Mr. Drewry was believed
to be the most suitable person, and it
wits decided to make evety effort lo induce him lo run. Drewry, it is believed,
will favur the retention of ibe eight*
hour law, and will in every way represent the people of" South East Kooleiiay
fairly ami impartially if elected.
'Tiie Ferule Free Press says tlmt lhe
people of Hast Kootenay are not solid
for Ptemler Martin. Well, who said
tbey were? The Tribune, in commenting on the delegates to the convention
said the delegates from iuist Kootenay
were solid for Martin, and so they were.
Southeast Kootenay had one delegate iu
the convention, and he veiled solid for

Wrong again, South East Kootenny
