The Seattle company on Wlldhorse

to shut down for repairs, the pipe-line
having broken down. On Perry creek
the hydraulic plant Is completed and
a little preliminary test yielded a nice

Moyie and Bull rlver3 and Wlldhorse

City Asks that Restricted Hours
For Use of Water Services
lie Closely Observed
Mr. A. C. Blaine returned this week
from Sinclair Hot Springs where he
spent a few days recently.
A meeting of the executive of the
Prospectors' Association Is taking
place this evening, Thursday, and thc
progress of the East Kootenay Prospectors' Development Company Is among the business to come up. .The
nine thousand dollar issue of stock
now before the public has not all been
absorbed yet, and it ls particularly desired that those intending to teVe up
shares do so this week, bo that the
proper allot tment proceedings can
take p'are without undue delay. Some
personal canvassing In behalf of the
new company has been in progress
during the week with fair results, and
it la hoped that everyone who possibly can will get into the list of shareholders.
Rules and regulations are made for
the benefit and well-being of the majority, and the request made by the
city authorities in regard to the restricted hours for the use of garden
water services ls no exception to this.
Two hours ln the morning and two
hours at night still glfes ample opportunity for garden enthusiasts to
keep their lawns, vegetables und flowers fn good shape. The aim ts not
to deprive anyone of water, but to prevent any careless wasting of the water, when natural conditions are tending to a lessened supply. The city has
issued Its request to the people at
large in a polite fashion, but there
are stilt some who may be seen making use of the water for the gardens
at all hours of the day. This is not
"playing the game," and It would be
only Just and proper for these people
to fall ln line with those who are trying
to be careful with the water supply.
It Is not as if only those who disregard the regulations would reap the
result If the waste of water continued. Everyone would be caught in
tbe water shortage, through the
thoughtlessness of a few.
A word to the wise Is sufficient.

the Crow's Nest Pass League, will
hook up with a combination team from
Cranbrook nnd Wycllffe. Hillcrest is
bringing a composite team, the pick
of their league, and so should be able
to provide the fast local team with
good opposition, The combining of
Cranhrook and Wycllffe will give the
locals a team strong in every department, and one that should take a
lot hefore It goes down to defeat. The
respect with which such a team Is
looked upon was demonstrated by the
fact Fernle would not consider its entry as such In the baseball tournament

Incorporated in tiie animal report of
the B.C. Department of Mines for
1920, whicli has just been published,
ure some Interesting references to the
mlniug resources of tliis district, being the result of personal inspections
made by Mr. A. G. Langley, Resident
Mining Engineer for District No. 6,
and a general summarizing of conditions as affecting the district. By
way of introductory, Mr. Langley Iiub
the following to say of tlie year's pro- |
gress ln mineral development in his
The mineral industry of the prov
ince has suffered during tite year from
the scarcity of labor, whicli in some
cases has been accentuated by strikes
called by thc O.B.U, Early In May a
strike was called by this union iu
the Slocan Mining Division greatly

exception of the Silversmith Mines,
Limited, which company saw fit to
accept the terms of this union. Labor
is now more plentiful and the Slocan
ls getting back Into Us strfdo once
more. It ts reported that from ahout
November 15th the various mines have
had full crews working and that the
strike has been definitely broken.
The outstanding feature governing
this year's production of lead and
zinc lias been the continuous operation of tlle great Sullivan mine by the
Consolidated Mining ami Smelting Co.
Under adverse conditions this mine
has greatly exceeded last year's output, and has been able to supply the
smelter with a steady stream of ore,
thu offsetting tlie decrease in tonnage
from other sources.
In view of the high coat of labor
and supplies, conditions cannot be
considered ideal fur the mining of gold
ores; It Is therefore encouraging to
note that there have heen now an Important developments in this direction during the year, which leads to,
the conclusion that ns soon as conditions become more normal, and the
ounce of gold represents a greater
purchasing power than at present.
even greater activity will be witnessed among the gold properties.
Mining operations on a small scale
have not been greatly affected by tiie
labor situation, and it Is safe to say
that the pas tseason has been an ex*
ceptlonully busy one in the hills for
the small operator, leaser and pro.
pector. To my knowledge, many results obtained among the .prospects
have been very encouraging, and lt Is
fully anticipated that next season will
see a number of new names on the
shipping list, providing market eondi
tions are favorable.
The production of coal from the
Crowsnest fields shows a substantial
increase over that of last year, the
total output being over 800,000 tons.
In this district during the season
three soldier prospecting parties were
assisted by the government. Two of
these chose the Big Bend district
north of Revelstoke. and n'third the

Some of the figures In regard to-the
mineral production of the province,
published in the annual report of the
Department of Mines, make good reading for those interested En the East
Kootenay section. The total mineral
production for tho province fer^ 1920
is valued at $86,648,684. Of this sum
the East Kootenay Is responsible for
J9.294.94S, and the West Kootenay
$3,049,731. These figures Include minerals of ail kind:-., metalliferous, coal
mines and non-metallic also. Only
one district, the Coast-Southern, Including Vancouver Island, produced
greater mineral wealth than the East
Kootenay, the total from that section
being given as $13,521,238.
The East Kootenay total Es made up
as follows: Fort Steele division, miscellaneous minerals. (81*500; collieries, $4,203,244; metalliferous mines,
$5,074,204- Windermere* Golden district, metalliferous mines. $130,041.

Copper, Lead and Zinc
Copper production has been hard
hit by adverse conditions, and according -to the report no production
■was registered from this section last
year. In 1918, the output was placed
at 9,679 lbs-, valued at $2,361. and in
1919 this dropped down to 1,768 lbs.,
valued at $435. In the Windormere-
CTolden division the 1919 output Is
placed at 12.640 lbs., value $2,436. and
In 1920 at 1,953 lbs., valued at $341.
In the output of lead oro there is
again an increase noted fn production
from the Fort Steelo division, and a
decrease from Windermere-Guidon.
For the past four years tli* figures
are as follows:

There seems to be good
grounds for believing that tliis
district is on the eve of some
very tangible advancement in
respect to the mineral resources. Not only is the nature of
these resources becoming better
known, ami also their extent,
but the steps being put forward
for their development are such
as commend themselves to bard
headed thinking men. Then:
is little or none of liie happy-
go-lucky bit-or-niiss type of de
velopmenl that characterized
some of the work in the old
boom days. Conversation with
the men who are working steadily out in the bills makes it
abundantly clear that they are
shaping I heir efforts along very
clearly defined and well
thought oui lines. They are eliminating Uie haphazard from
their milling and basing their
work on real practical experience and proper scientific
and engineering knowledge.
Out of such rationally planned
and well directed efforts, it
does not seem rash to predict
that success will come.
Perusing thc reports pTes-
sented on this district and its
mineral resources by practical
mining men, as summarized
elsewhere in this issue, one is
struck by the note of optimism
that pervades them. Nature
has put the minerals within our
reach—the problem is how to
get at this new source of
wealth. Tliere is no divergence of opinion as lo wheth
er the district has the minerals
or not; neither is there any
question as to the ultimate outcome of their promise. More
than that, there is a general
agreement that the lime is ripe
for some forward steps iu the
matter, and Ihe East Koolenay
may soon find Itself embarked
upon a new era of develop
ment iu this field.
Tlie fonnutlon of lhe new
Prospectors' I) e v e 1 o p
menl Company, and the forth*
coming visit of the parly of
American mining engineers in
a short time, are two other factors whicli ought to make for
a spirit of hopeful optimism in
respect to the mining outlook.
The former may wield an immense influence if II is work
ed out along the lines mapped
out by Ihe promolors; and the
latter though more of a transitory occurrenec, may still be
counted on to leave some impress on the situation. These
men know mines and prospects, and if Ihey see that East
Kootenay has the bright future
In mineral development  that
It is a pity that this district
could not have been represented in some properly accredited
fashion at the big convention of
the Western Canada Irrigation
Association at Vernon this
week. Irrigation is going to
prove the main factor In
working out the problem of bigger agricultural production in
this section. Tliere is plenty of
land available, but it lacks the
proper degree of natural moisture to ensure good crops.
Wliere the water has beeu applied to the land intelligently,
the results are immediately apparent.
Tliere was a time not long
ago either, when irrigation in
western Canada was looked upon as one of these new-fangled
notions that come and go, the
notion of a dreamer, nice to
think about, but highly impractical. Time lias changed these
ideas, however, and now there
are districts in the province
from which millions' worth of
irrigated products are sent every summer to distant markets,
where tha output without irrigation would not. be as many
Irrigation has been proven
adaptable to varying conditions.
Prairie grain farms are now being successfully treated as irrigated ranches, and quite extensively. It is the review of
irrigation under widely differing conditions that would bave
proved of distinct benefit to tbis
section. Thousands of acres
adjacent land must
brought under irrigation before
the agricultural possibilities of
the district are in any way to
be realized. The greatest difficulty to be faced in this instance is not the proximity or
otherwise of the requisite water supply, but the task of bring-
into line all the different interests, landed and otherwise, who
are concerned. Here again
would be apparent the value of
learning how other districts
have met similar situations. An
other year Cranbrook should be

As ihe numerous court charges against the Vancouver Sun
are being ventilated, one characteristic of the cases becomes
noticeable. The Sun levelled its
charges, not so much against
individuals, as against the provincial government, the responsible head of which is Hon. John
Oliver. In not one ease, how-
over, has the Premier seen fit
to come out flat-footed with a
denial, leaving the electors at
liberty to draw tlieir own conclusions.
In the matter of the Campbell liquor warehouse deal, for
instance, it seems passing
strange that when charges of
payment in excess of value arc
made, the person to resent them
most appears not lo be the Premier, who by virtue of his position must stand as thc representative of the people in the
matter, bill the vendor of the
property. In common prac
tire II is the purchaser who tuk
es up the position of Ihe aggrieved one, bul here is a case of
tlie party of the second part be
lug quite satisfied with a deal
handed out which the party of
the first part reels compelled to
get court vindication for. A
Strange slate of affairs truly.
One may not sec eye to eye
wllh the Sun in all things, but
if iis charges are as devoid of
foundation as ihe Premier asserts, what has he lo lose by
coming out into the open lo
refute them?
Must liaise Revenue   Uui Howl
It goes without saying Ihat tlle profile that wltl accrue from the sale of
liquor will be considerably less than
is popularly expected and will nol furnish lhe requisite surplus with whicli
the government might feel disposed to
embark upon new enterprises In tho
ordinary way. Por this obvious reason
it is highly desirable thut the tlrst
opportunity should be taken to increase the annual revenue o( the province, not only to replace sueh diversion of the provlnciul funds to the
municipalities as the legislature may
decide, but nlso to enable tile people I
to get a more appropriate benefit from j

The uniirinctpled way in which tha

crisis. Instead of management we
have had mismanagement; instead of
organization we have had disorganization; and instead of honesty we have
had the most open dishonesty. Such
statements as these would carry little influence were they not supported
by publicly-known facts.
The existence of such a grave condition leaves open to the Premier
threo alternative courses: First, to

Tlte German Moral rode
Ttie hlghost court of the German
empire has laid down thnt uo deed,
however wicked, which is committed
by order of the German slate. Is a
punishable crime. That is tlie clear
result of the aeiiuitlal of Lieut .-Commander Neumann for torpedoing tin
British hospital ship, Dover Castle.
Tliere Is uo controversy ahout the
material facts. Neumann himself
told how he had sunk the ship, killing
several of her crew. It was not his
doing if any of those ou board escaped with tholr lives. Tlie sole defence
was that tliis flngrant nml deliberate
violation of the elementary dictates of
conscience, of tlie natural law. and of
the express provisions of the law of
nations, wns committed in obedience
to tho orders of the German admiralty.
The court held that these orders exonerated the man who did the fhur-
ders from all responsibility. That Is
the supremely Important outcome of
this series of trlnls.--Loiidon Time 8.
VICTORIA, n.C.— The preliminary
report of tho provincial Minister of
Mines shows that more than thlrty-

Gathering Raspberries,
In the heart of the small-fruit
country on the north side of tbo
Fraser River in British Columbia,
where every landowner has his commercial patch of raspberriea, amall
or large, one of the best examples
of what a perfectly developed, well
run fruit farm on a small acreage
can be, is the Maple Crest Farm at
Hatzlc belonging to Mr. A. E. Dann.
Mr. Dann is an Old Country gardener and was brought up on his
father's fruit farm of 200 acre* in
Kent; as the conditions for fruitgrowing are much the samn in British Columbia as in England, lib ex*
Serience is his greatest asset out
ere. IL* believes that thero \s far
more profit in the careful and thorough cultivation of the small |wtch
than In the big patch carelessly looked after.
The soil in this district Is naturally
rich, well-drained and therefore particularly well-adapted for small fruit
but Mr. Itann uses farm-yard manure when possible and plenty of
rhemical fertilizers as well.
He has an acre in strawberries,
the "Magoon" variety, which are
best suited to the district, and in a
good year realixes $1,200 on these;
half of this must be allowed for expenses of picking, packing, crating,
earlage, etc., so that he clears a
profit of $600.
He hns uvei an acre of £oose-
berries, mostly grown from cuttings
which he struck himself, "Pearl"
which aro the earliest, "Oregon
Shampion," the main crop and "Joce-
lyn," the late ones. There nre 1,100
bushes in full bearing which average a gross return of ?1 per bush,
more than half of which ia clear
p refit.
Gooseberries, of course, are fa?
ihcaper to grow than strawberries
Decause like all bush fruit they last
for a Ioiir term of years without
fieedinji renewal.
Mr. Dann has over nn acre of raspberries, "Cuthberts" and an unl.nmvn
traricty much grown in the district
that surpasses even the "Cuthberts'?
for earlinesB and heavy yields. Three
tons to the acre Is an average crop
or 300 cniles for which lliu lowest
price is fl per crnte, fo it will he
seen tint tho iiroflts work mil much
tha same as for •twff** aiul rasps.
Thore is an aero of loganberriei
and though these do not bring io
sueh good pricos as rasps, the crop
lasts much longer and pickers can
pick double tho amount in a day, se
the profits work out the same,
Logan growers are Tory anxious to
see a plant for bottling logan-joke
started in the Province and we hope
this will come ere long.
Over an acre of "Thornleos" blackberries are grown aa those ara con.
sidcred better than "Snyder" which
are too seedy or "Evergreen" which
are too late. They do not bring in
such good prices as the other fruits
but the crop is heavier, lasts longer
md the expenses are less, so that ai
Rood $600 is cleared on these also.'
There are about one and a quartei
acres of red and black currants
some of the red currant bushel
reaching the prodigious sixe of 0 ft
in diameter and producing over Ml
lbs. of fruit. These bring Tn a irrusi
return of $700-$S(Ml per acre.
Mr. Dann has also fifty Boussock
pear trees which invariably yield i
good crop and are a variety particularly free from disease. Thi*
district has learnt the imperative
necessity of co-operation In handling
their fruit. The area of production^
has assumed such vast proportions
in tho last few years that unless the
produce had Keen handled on business lines nothing short of disaster,
could have occurred, both for tha
individual and for this industry Iq
the Province.
Cold storage facilities aro abso-j
lutely necessary and the expense ofl
this can only be met by every grow-j
er joining the exchange ln his district. Last year the Hatak Fruit
and Mercantile Exchange ahippoot
six carloads of rasps to Winnipeg]
and not ono crate waa spoilt
A traveller from the East told Wit*
Dann that he saw several crates ofl
rasps from the Hatzic district laat
summer In Fort William and thej!
wore all in perfect shape.
This year the Exchange expects lo
ship over 500 cars of fruit and tho
strawberry yield alone Is expected ts
total from 800-1000 tons. There aro
about 2,800 acres ln British Columbia under small fruit and tho valua
of last  ysart
benefit them in the (umpiring and Instructive addresses that have been arranged*
Tho convention will hist four days,
opening at. 2.30 p.m. on Wednesday,

which will enable tho delegates to
catch lhe trains going north aud
south. The Lieutenant Governor of

The opening addresses on the second
day will be given hy L. C, Charlesworth, president of the Irrigation
Council ot Alberta. Then will follow
a preliminary reporl of the Resolution's committee, and addresses by
Dr. John A. Widtsoe, president of the
University of Utah, and the Hon. T.
1). Pattullo, Minister of Lands for
British Columbia and President of the
Western Canada Irrigation Association. The subject of Dr. Wldtsoo's
address is "Excessive Irrigation and
Its Dangers" and the Hon. T. O. Pattullo will speak on the irrigation situation in British Columbia.
Thursday afternoon is to be devoted
to a tour of tht surrouiuPtiR country
when some uf the locnl Irrigation
works will be visited, and the delegates will afterwards be taken to the
Coldstream Ranch, where refreshments will bt served. At the Cold-
itroam Ranch the Hon. Duncan Mfir-
ihall and C. R. Yuill will give addresses, the latter on the subject of "The
Construction of Dams and Spillways."
This address will deal largely with
tho Irrigation works that the delegates will see in the -afternoon.
Theso addresses are scheduled for
Friday morning. An address on tho
-Growing of Forage Crops under Irrigation" will he given by R. IL Hel-
mer, Superintendent of the Dominion

A denial of the frequently-met
allegation that increased railway
rates ara responsible for the present
business depression was made by
William Sproul, President of the
Southern Pacific Railway Company,
at lhe convention of th* National
Association of Credit Men at San
Francisco last week. Mr. Sproul, after alluding to the so-called "freight
blockade" that occurred in 11)17,
"Just aa it was lightly alleged
then that the railroads had broken
down, so now it is readily alleged
that the increase in railroad rates i-s
responsible tor the stagnation of
business. Because transportation is
so important a factor in business it
would be a serious charge, if it were
true, that the railroad rates had produced the present stagnation in business.   Hut it is not true.
"On the contrary, lhe railroad
rates were not raised in time to enable tho railroads to move the commerce of the country in its active
period when the business of the
country at large could easily absorb
the Increase. The fact is that the
rates were raised and business declined at al-oul the same time, but
one hud nothing to do with the other
as a related matter.
"In proof of the suggestion, let me
call your attention to the water rates.
The rates by waler have been on the
decline. Yet private owners are
laying up their ships. The United
States Shipping Hoard's ships are
laid up by the score because business
is stagnant. The cause is found in
tk* sheer inability of business to pel
back on a peace basis. That is thc
reason business has halted.
"Yet the call of the day is that
railroads reduce their rates because
business is bad. This call for reduction comes from nil sources anil
on all important commodities and
from all sections of the country. 1
venture the opinion that if all the
railroads of this country were, by
some edict, to reduce their rates ono-
lmlf on every kind of traffic everywhere, there would be no a DP reel a ble
Increase in the volume of business
moved, but the railroads would bo
prostrate In one common disaster
that would shako the nation and call
credits into question."

Illicit Purveyors Still lit Business There and Oolug Strong,
According to Reports
Tlie art of bootlegging, a branch of
legerdtuiain which became no highly
developed In this province In the days
of tiie prohibition uct, wus slated to
die a natural death on the advent of
the government control measure, so
it was announced. Some tendency iu
thia direction is said to bo apparent
in some of the interior districts, but
at tlie Coast things do not seem to
be working out In quite the same
way, -accroding to word received. Liquor was going to be so cheap under
t[ie government control measure that
ilie bootlegger would not be ablQ to
compete, and anyway, who was going to buy from the bootlegging gen-
wheii there would bu respectable
stores to go to, and from which one
could emerge with a bottle under their
arm. or a case on tlieir shoulder, as
It might be, without any question, so
long as one's permit was found to be
hi order? Hut the bootlegger is not
giving up his lucrative calling without a struggle, uud tliere still seem to
be quite a number of people who will
patronize him. It has been learned
that so far tliere have been no prosecutions brought against anyone for the
possession of private stocks of liquor
which have not been sealed according
to tlie provisions of the Liquor Control Act.
According to the requirements of
the uct, it was compulsory that all
possessors of spirituous or malt liquors report their holdings to the
Liquor Control Board before the act
came into force June 15 In order that
stocks might be labelled by the official seal. This provison was not rigidly enforced owing to a more or less
general lack of understanding of tlie
intent of the new act.
A thirty-day extension of time was
granted and within that period all
owners of private stocks of liquor were
required to report the possession of
"wet goods" to the authorities some
time so they might be duly registered.
The liquor commissioners feel that
in most instances the law is being observed but some apprehension Is felt
over tlie fact thut the bootlegger la
still doing business at the old stand
at the coust. and after hours and on
Sundays tlie man with tlie ready cash
has no difficulty ln obtaining a supply.
A quiet investigation of conditions
reveals the fact that there in still a
great deal of "Illicit" whiskey available there, -anil to apprehend the culprits Is no small task.
While many constant users of the
essence of tlte highlands observe the
law when it Is convenient to do so.
still the many uulabtllcd empty bottles thrown out on Sundays and holidays, to say nothing of the receptacles
whicli never saw a government seal,
lead to* tlie Impression thut "tliere is
something rotten in Denmark" and
investigations of private stocks is n
question absorbing the attention of
the liquor commissioners.
While it Is expected and, In fact,
known that liquor is being held by
some private owners without tlie requisite government seals, tliere has
beeu a certain leniency on the part of
the authorities.
Rather than visit tiie premises of
a private individual who was thought
to bo the possessor of liquor hold as
Imported stock, no searching parlies
have been sent out. Tlie hoard has expressed no particular concern over the
Individual who stored liquor for tils
private use but wlio resented what he
termed an interference with his liberty according to the British "North
America Act.
.The commissioners admit frankly
Ihat the bootlegger with a stock secreted for illicit use will bo hard to
catch and "watchful waiting" lias been
adopted as the easier policy.
However, the continuance of hoot
legging, it is ndmitted, is causing no
little anxiety and every consignment
of imported liquor which reaches a
destination through other channels
than a government store is being closely checked us is possible tinder a system still in Its infancy, largo stocks
are known to have arrived In the
province recently.
One of lfie commissioners lias declared thut no quarter would hereafter ho shown even where it was believed that the imported Intended to
uso the liquor personally, and seizures in tlie future are expecled.
Another Source of satisfaction lo
the purveyor of illicit liquor at the
Coast is the closing of the government
stores on Wednesday afternoons, the
legal half-holiday. The regular buyer ln need or a supply for the holiday
must either buy before 1 o'clock or do
And with holidays lending an incentive to make merry, the bootlegger
chuckles. In tho country districts
where the stores close on Thursday

Some Fires Due
To Carelessness
District Forester States Almost
One-Third of Fires This Season From This Cause
(Creston Review)
Up to the middle of July a total of
.12 forest fires hud been reported in
East Kootenay, according to Normau
Moore, district forester, Cranbrook,
who was here ou an official visit at
the end of the week.
While the loss so far to merchantable limber has been comparatively
light, a disturbing feature of the
blazes is noted In the fact that eleven
of them were, undoubtedly, due to the
caroleasncBB of fishermen in throwing
away lighted cigarette or cigar stuba.
Willi 'he province just entering upon
the two driest mouths of the year tiie
season is looked forward lo not without misapprehension, notwithstanding
the fact that exceptionally severe legal penalties are meted out lo those
found guilty of causing liies under
these clrctiinstances.
Outside of this disturbing factor
forestry protection for this season is
exceptionally promising. Due to providing camp sites for tourists and picnic parlies losses due to camp fires
liavo bet n reduced from 40 per cent. In
1918 to ll per cent, in 1920. In handling the general run of fires still
greater efficiency is expected this
year due to the greater experience of
the fire wardens and patrolmen—the
former now being equipped with motor cars and can cover their territory
much better; the enrollment of volunteer f're-figliting corps available when
called upon. 14 of which are fully organized in Kast Kootenay, with three

the Boundary Trust property—at a
cost of about $80,000, by a syndicate
of tw<>uty-slx local citizens, Is one of
the* most Important deals that have
been negotiated In the vicinity for
somo time. There are <158 acres in the
Almond property, owned by Oovorn-
ment agent R. S. Almond, and 167
acres in tbt Boundary Trust, originally tbe 8pr«ciftt Baueb.

In connection with local fire patrol
work the district forester states that
Jim Long is doing even better work
than lust season, being promptly on
the job when a fire is discovered, nnd
putting it out or getting it under control quite as expeditiously.
In lho output Of forest products Mr
Moore staled that for the first six
mouths of tliis year there Is a falling
off ol' 40 per cent, as compared with
tho same period last year, and the decline applies alike to lumber, logs
posts and poles. About the only
thing moving right now is poles, and
tlie export of these is not heavy, while
the heavy cut of ties earlier In the
year has been mainly responsible for
holding up the production of lumber
For the whole year tlie comparison
witli 19*^0 will be even less favorable
than the first six mouths' figures in
dlcate. There will, of course, be some
lagglnfl this coming season, but tt is
not likely to be extensive from present plans nnd market appearances
While many of tlie East Kootenay
plants have operated for part of the
season Mr. Moore does not expect to
see more than nine running after tlie
first of August.- one of which will be
the Winlani mill at Wynndel. which
Is said to bo operated advantageously
as to maximum cut at minimum cost,
nnd is handling an exceptionally fine
class of logs.
With the starting UP of the Home-
seekers' Agency mill at Wynndel there
are now olght sawmill plants in Creston Valley, with a daily capacity of
possibly 17'..000 feet. The Homeseek-
ers' mill is cutting on u limit of 2000
acres on Duck mountain, the object
being to get the arable part of this
area cleared of timber so that It can
be offered for sale to prospective settlers, several of the men who will settle on the laud being now employed in
the mill crew.

Located within a short distance of

Group. When visited In May the
group of claims were as follows. Rob

Ihe property is being operated by the
.(..lobe .Mining Company, of Vancouver,

connecting the workings with tbe

Bull River Iron Deposits
Tlie Hull River iron deposits are
situated neur tlie summit Mount
Fenwlck at uu elevution of 6,500 feet.
The property comprises a group of
seven Crown-grunted claims and
fractions covering an area of 375
acres. Access can be gained from the
town of Bull River, on the Kootenay
Central Railway, by wagon road for C
miles to tlie base of Mount Fenwlck,
and thence by trail which follows a
fairly steep und uniform grade to the
id cabin situated at an elevation of
bout ...i-uii feet, or 4,000 feet above
ihe railway,
Tlie workings are mostly confined
in ihe south-westerly Hide and are
scattered over u large area, from the
nmuill io ltoo feet below. The titlt-
ide. covered with grass and underbrush, is sparsely timbered with small
balsam aud juck-pliie, which would
le ample fuel for camp requirements.
Further exploratory work would ap-
pear advisable* but Just where and
how this should be carried ou can only be determined by an extensive ex-
amlnatton und careful study of tbe
geological conditions. This work should
bo done witli n view of .proving the
existence of a sufficient body of ore
bf suitable grade to warrant the large
expenditure which would be necessary
to provide power und transportation
facilities in order to carry on mining
operations on a large scale. Abundant power is available at Bull River
falls, nt n distance of three miles,
while the property is within a reasonable distance of the railway.
Tlie development of a large body of
hematite ore within a short distance
o! the Crowsnest coalfields would certainly prove a most valuable asset to
British Columbia. '
Achilles Group
Tho Achilles Group ls sometimes
known as the Kvans group owing to
tiio fact that C and W. Evans, of
Mnry-*.ville. have been actively engaged on the property for a number of
yenrs. It was reported on by J. D.
Galloway in 1915 In the Minister of
Mines' report for that year. At the

have boon thoroughly examined. The
following remarks regarding the
