IA Dollar?
An interesting figure on Crnnbrook
streets fur a couple ol duy? lasl week was
Dave Griffith, one of the sturdy pioneers
of the district; one of the very few who
cume into the country in 1864 aud has
stayed wtth it to good purpose.
In   the  winter  of '64-65 there were
some thousands of meu 011 Wild Horse
creek engaged in placer mining.   Some
spots were wonderfully rich, equal to
auy in  British Columbia, and fortunes
were made aud speut as freely as in the
Yukon.   When the richest of the diggings  were   worked out and thousand
dollar dirt could no more be found) most
of the  adventurers scattered over the
country hunting uew banks of golden
earth,   but Mr.   Griffith,   with  s long
headedness and obstinacy, which uiay
fairly be called his most marked characteristic, stuck to the creek which had
yielded him much gold, and mauy of the
good things of life.   Year after year, as
the original owuersof claims left for uew
diggings, their old holdings fell into his
possession, until  he had acquired fully
half of the workable gravel of the creek,
aud became the sole owner of the Victoria !
ditch, which carried the most valuable
water right of the camp.     Theu  Mr.
Griffith might have settled down to enjoy the fruits of his patient and watchful efforts, but the inborn energy of the
man kept him busy at all sorts of work,
and today his rugged frnme aud business
ability give 110 hint of retirement from
the most active participation in public
affairs.'   If anyone wishes to understand
the difficulties and hardships of taking
gold out of gravel in the olden days, let
him drive to Fort Steele, and five miles
beyond up Wild  Horse creek, and get
Mr. Griffith to show* the points of inter-
'iiiu1eij?s*:"'aVea'"o'f"giouu'd"wliich is now-
level with the present creek, but was
once over a hundred feet high 111 auriferous gravel, the miles and miles of ditches
around   the mountain sides,  the huge
boulders moved in the search for gold,
and remember that the nearest point for
lUpplies   was   Walla   Walla,   nearly   a
thousand miles away, that the Indians
on the trail were generally hostile, nnd
then digest lhe fact that these old timers
walking under greal difficulties produced
over fifteen millions  of dollars!   Such
as the starling point  in  history ol our
South Hast Kootenay district.
; From tlie Irse Pms ]
Miss liackett entertained & number of
frlenda Ui the Victoria parlor* on Wednesday evening. Whist and dancing
were Indulged in foi a few hours, after
wnich all repaired to ihe Bpacioui dining room, where a long tabic was sei
and a most sumptuous luncheon pio-
vided. An exceptionally pleasant even-
tag was Spent by all p'ssent.
A Slav bov about ;, years of age had

The Pincher Creen Echo says large
deposits oi good tire clay has been discovered ntar Livingston. One of the

A Wholesome Tcndcacy.
The recent transfers of mining proper-
lies on Sullivan hill will tend to give
outsiders confidence in liast Kootenay
mines. This is ns it should be, a disposition on lhe part of claim owners to
meet the purchaser on common ground
« have the effect of giving stabi'ity
to the mining industry of the district.
['he placing of ficticious values on a
prospect will draw capital from the
country-) and once it has been diverted
t is difficult to get il back. The pur-
baser of a claim takes the greater risk,
in ihat he musl expend large sums to determine iis value; il it proves worthless
he is the only one injured, in which case
llu* prospector Is the beneficiary. If for
some cause Ihe sale is not consumated,
lhc original owner has n property considerably better developed than when
he bonded tt.
While in mining there are no more
risks Ihnn iu any other business, the
element of chance which enters inlo all
mining ventures iuak<**s it an aitraclive
business not only loathe speculator^ but
to every one who invests a dollar iu
Dividend paying mines are few and
fai between, although so mui'h is heard
of lb fin. lu looking over llu-list ol
dividend payljlg mines one will be astonished at the comparatively small
number which aro producing wealth in
Canada and the United States, It is not
without Ihe expenditure of vast sums of
money which will make a dividend
payer ofa properly,
It is said that il costs ten dollars to
produce one dollar in mining. Of course
this includes all work in prospecting nud
development and it would seem that
this evidence is practically correct; for
instance, in this mining district hundreds of thousands of dollars have beeu
expended in explotiug properties,
thousands of claims have beeu located,
hm in the entire district only two mines
are  paying  dividends.
The Fernie Boys Succumb to a  Score ol
Four to line.
The Cianbrook Hockey team went lo
Fernie last 1'hiiis lay, accompanied by a
crowd of rooters. The game was a very
good one in many respects and several
of the Cranbrook boys distinguished
themselves by their individual plays,
The score Btood—but, no, we will let
the story be told entliely by the Ferule
Free l'ress, as follows:
The Cranbrook hockey team came to
Fernie 011 last evening'-; train and played
a match in the rink with the Pernie
boys lhat night. Play started shortly
after S o'clock, and it was not loug before the Cranbrook boys scored, They
soon did the trick again, and il was not
until lime was almost up for the first
half that the home team scored their
first and ouly goal. In lhe second half
Craubrook scored two more goals, the
game finishing with a score of 4 to r iu
fiutfmoaiy ftas tf-.e Lust -jam. They art
all splendid skaters ami sure on their
feet. Where tbe Fertile boys were at
tbe worst disadvantage was their inability to "lift" scarcely any of them being
able to get the puck off lhe ice, whereas
everyone of the visitors could lift clear
from one end of the rink to the other.
Those who saw the match here and the
one al I'mcher say the Fernie boys did
not put up nearly as good a game as at
Pincher, For the home team Dan La-
fortune put up the best game. Milt
Kastner, who usually excells in any
game he plays, did not seem to be himself last night, and lliough usually as
firm as a rock, did not put up anything
like ihe game he did at Pincher. The
Cranbrook learn Ins a jewel of a goal
keeper. The game throughout was conducted in a most friendly manner, uot
the slighest sign of ill-nature appearing
at any time on either side, Mr. Sanson)
acted as referee, and a fairer or more
impartial judge it would have been impossible to get. On oue or two occasions he found it necess iry to rule oft a
Craubrook man for a few minutes, but
did it in such a gentlemanly mauner tbat
not even tbe Craubrook boys said a
I11 addition to tbe team, about twenty
friends came wilh the Craubrook boys,
and although lols of jollying was indulged in, there was nothing in any way
offensive, as is often the rase at snch
games, A return match will he played
at Cranbrook iu the near future.
After the hockey match an impromptu entertainment was given at
George Levasseur's holel, in which the
talent of hoth tov.ns participated. It
was a very enjoyable affair and nn't with
the hearty approval of the large crowd
The different positions ou lhe Cranhrook team were played as follows.

To Mine British Columbia Coil.
It was some time ago announced that
the Gooderhaui-Blackstoek syndicate
were going into coal mining lu Southern British Columbia. They have secured an option ou the coal fields of the
Nikola Valley, through which the C, P.
K. has planned to ruu its extension of
the Columbia & Western Railway, aud
near which the proposed Mackenzie &
Mann Hue to the coast is lo pass, Tbere
are said lo he 100,000,000 tons of coal of
high-class ijnality in sight in the deposit
secured by the Toronto syndicate,
The difficulties between the shipping mines of South East Kootenay
and the C P. R, and smelters have
all been adjusted. This means an
immediate revival of activity in
mining in this district, and the resumption of the heavy shipments
that have attracted the attention of
the mining; world to the rich mineral deposits of this territory,
The St. Eugene, of Moyie- has
consumated a deal by which its
output for several months will be
sent to Belgium, and this insures a
working of that mine to its full capacity. Work has been resumed,
and the force already has been
largely increased, and more men
are being employed each day.
General Manager Robbins, of the
North Star mine, has just returned
from the east, where the difficulty
has been adjusted, and that company will now ship its product to
Nelson, Trail and Everett. This
will mean an increase in the number of men employed on that property, and full time for all of them.
The Sullivan mine has already
made arrangements for the shipment of ore to the Trail umpltcr
pany to greatly increase its output,
as soon as a spur or tram is built
from the railroad to the mine.
These are most favorable conditions, since the continuous shipping
bp these three great properties, will
mean prosperity to the district, and
continue as material evidence of the
fact that South East Kootenay is
one of the richest mining territories
on the American continent.
At the opening of the season of
1901, the first of the new century,

Views ot Mr. Robbins.
Mr. F. Robbins, general manager of
the Norlh Star mine, returned last Monday from a prolonged trip east. While
there, he, in connection wilh other otlic-
ials of the company, arranged the question of rates with the C. P. R , nnd also
as to handling of the ore with the smelling companies, Air. Robbins, hi speaking of the recent agitation in regard to
smelter and railway rates, said that he
believed it would result in a great benefit to British Columbia, as lhe action of
the American Smelter trust demonstrated
tbe fuel there should be smeiteis on this
side of the liue to take care of the ore.
The smellers of Trail ami Nelson could
not handle the ore lhat was ready for
them. The increase iu the output in
liast and West Kootenay the last two
years has shown that increased smelting
facilities me needed, and this fact may
prove attractive to capitalists looking
for n field for investment.
While in Montreal, the Herald of that
cily pr luted an interview wilh Mr. Robbins, iu which that gentleman set forth
lhe situation iu this district as follows:
"Britisli Columbia," said Mr, Robbins, "is producing much more silver-
lead ore than the people of the section
know about. On the first of Inst year
there was not a single shipping mine in
the East Kootenny district, and uow
there are three mines producing as large
a tonnage as the entire Slocan or West
Kootenay district. The production is
practically 72.000 tons, or double that of
the two Kootenays a year ago.
"Withiu tbe last yenr a branch ofthe
Canadian Pacific has enabled the mine
to ship its product much more expeditiously than before. It wasfoimerly customary to ship by wagon lo the Kootenay, then down the dangerous rapids to
Jennings. Mont., all the ore being
smelted In the States. By using the
branch line and a tram we have built,
nil our ore is now handled by Canadian

The Sullivan mine has beeu shipping
on an average of 40 tons daily, varying
from 55 to 25 per day, the variance beiug

things done here iu the near future. He
has just returned from a trip to the Sullivan mine and expresses his opinion of
this properly as being the biggest thing

yet an infant and appears to be a well
defined ledge with a great future before
it. He says be is surprised at the growth
ofthe town during recent years and
thinks there are great opportunities

The Sunday Alliance.
0;i Friday evening of last week the
Rev. J. G Shearer, field secretary ofthe
Lord's Day alliance, delivered a stirring
address to a large audience, from the
subject! "Our Imperiled Canadian Sabbath."
In his opening remarks Mr. Shearer
plainly informed his audience that
neither he, nor the alliance he repre
scuts, had a word to say iu regard to the
religious observance ol the day; that,
necessarily, must he left to the conscience of each man, but they did wish
to secure it, or retain it, as the case
might be, as a day ol rest to all classes
and conditions of people in tbe Dominion
The Sabbath is imperiled byirrelittion,
the greed of gold nnd the desire for
pleasure, said the speaker, and the
masses must toil for the gratification of
the above-mentioned. Mr. Shearer
demonstrated that the alliance was tbe
friend of the working men. Those who
heard will not soou forget the pointed

Cranbrook is concerned. Since tbe
time the town was surveyed and the hrst
buildings constructed, the progress has
been steady and sure. Last year, with
nothing to boom it but its natural resources as a business aud mining center,
the towu made greater advancement tban
at any olher time in her history. The
past bas demonstrated tbe fact tbat wilh
the growth of other towns in the district
and lhe development of the mineral and
agricultural resources, Cranbruok, as lhe
logical center of the rich territory, has
forged ahead with the rest. Nol only is
this true, but the fact is fully appreciated and frankly conceded by the peo-
pie of the whole district.
Cranbrook stands without a rival in the
district, simply because Craubrook is interested in the growth and prosperity nf
every other town in the district. Cranbrook wants to see Moyie, Fernie, Fort
Sleele, Kimberley, Wardner, and all
other points go ahead. Their prosperity
meaustbe prosperity of Cranbrook.
There is a great future ahead for this

Tbe agitation for the designation of
some point on the railroad (or the transaction of government business is a legitimate and logical one. It is time that
the convenience of the people of the district should be considered by the government. Out ol about 1700 voters ou the
polling list, over 1300 of them live at
points on the railroad. To force this
large majority of people to extra expense
and Inconvenience is an imposition of
the rankest kind,
Government business, like any oilier
business, should be done in a businesslike way. The government should represent the people, and the people of
