James T, Dixon, ihe manager of the
Mount Sicker and British Columbia
Developing Company, leturned from the
coast hist S-ftturday,) nnd il is not yet
known whnt the intentions of tlie company are with regard tu future work in
this vicinity,
It is rumored thnt the survey of the
railroad to Ibe Suflivau will start as
soou as the surface uf the ground will
permit. The suow is rapidly going so it
is hoped it will be commencing very
soon.
The New Goldflelda of British Columbia are Commencing work on their
bonded properties ou the ist of May.
These properties adjoin the Sullivan property. Until the arrival of Mr. Lowles,
engineer for the compauy, Mr, Elwell of
Kimberley, will be iu charge of the work
O ily a small force will be put on at first,
but later this will moat probably be incensed. The diamond drill will be on
the ground during May by which a grei t
deal of p ospecting work will be done.
Mr. Charles Estmere bas been doing
considerable development work on his
factional claims adjoining the Sullivan,
but on account of tbe enormous amount
of surface water the work had to be suspended for a time.
A siding is about to be pnt in at Pinch
Sl Jones mill, in order to handle the enormous quantities of lumber that they
are shipping this summer.
Stipendiary Magistrate J. F. Armstrong visited Kimbeiley on Thursday
last, and held a meeting of the police
and small debts courts.
Mr. and Mrs. Prank Robbing returned
fiom their trip to the west ou Thuisday
the nth.
Aime Campbell has retired from the
retail store business and is uow the
occupant of the Kimberley Holel, iu
which place we all wish him success.
Paul Hundley is now constructing an
additional to his livery stable, which will
be badly needed tbis summer. Kimberley hns belter prospects for a bright
season this summer tban any towu in
East Kootenay. The copper properties
in the St. Mary's River district will be
extensively operated upon, which will be
sufficient, in itself, besides more developed properties in the immediate
neighborhood, to make things hum In
Kimberley. Rumors of concentrators,
etc., nre heard in tbe air, but ihe roar of
them will soou be heard.

Publicity is all that the Kootenays
need to attract capital for tbe proper
development of lhe many meritorious
pnipei lies in this portion of tbe province-
The mineral is here, and in paying quaii,
lilies, hut it takes money and lots of it
lo make a mine, no matter how rich the
tleposit may be. Any person who is
aiding in tbis w *.k of publicity is doing
a power ot good for tbe province as a
whole and the individual prospector.
And it is Along this line that Andrew F
Roienberger, of the Prospectors' Exchange, of Nelson, is coming to tbe front
as a positive ami absolute benefit to the
province. Ile has adopted a novel
method for getting the capitalist and
prospector together. He wants to place
himself in touch with the prospector. If
the owner of the prospect has anything
that met its serious consideration; if he
has .t property that warrants tbe investment of oapUal( and will be willing to
shara the responsibility and chances
with tbe capitalist, to develope his prop*
cily, he can ilo business by getting in
touch with Roseuhcrger, The man with
a -wildcat need nut waste any time with
Roienberger, He deals in legitimate
property only. He does not bundle
stock in any way, he simply handles
mines. He is not a promoter hut a
legitimate dealer in legitimate proper-
lies. Such men are needed in every
milling country. The prospector, rut
until)*, is not in touch with capital. To
bring success to the investor and Ihe
prospector, a middle mau is necesaary
and he must be oue who has the confidence of both mine owner and capitalist.
Those .in South East Kootenay who
bave good properties will do well to
communicate with Mr. Rosenberger at
Nelson, send him samples of your ore,
give him full information and the results
will probably prove beneficial,

WINNER   OF   FIRST   PRIZE.
Ity Mm Hli'itla Leitch
To discuss Soulh East Kootenay and
compare its former condition, its later
growth and progress, ami its future great
possibilities, we must understand clearly
to what portion of the province we are
confined. The western boundary is the
height of laud which forms tbe watershed between the waters of the Kootenay lake and rivet. Ou the north we
have the height of laud separating tbe
Columbia river, (lowing north, and the
Kootenay, flowing south, To the east
is the summit of the Rocky mountains,
and ou tbe south the forty-ninth paral
lelof latitude. South East Kootenay is
a rich country, now on the eve of full
development and expansion.
The wonderful wealth of this district
haa long beeu known and in the early
days of placer mining it almost rivalled
Cariboo in its yield of millions. The
lapk of a railroad, however, proved a
great drawback to the development of
the country. Poor means of communication and the heavy cost of transportation, combined with the rich discoveries
in more accessible parts ofthe province,
retarded operations aud prevented the
progress In development which would
have reached immense proportions bad
the circumstances beeu more favorable.
But such wealth could not long remain
hidden. This new mining empire, which
was hitherto a sealed region, was opened
in 1898 by the Crows Nest railway, a
branch of tbe great transcontinental
railway,   the   Canadian   Pacific.      The
completion of this branch, which leaves
the main liue at Dunmore Junction and
extends soutli through the mineral fields
to the camps in the iHJiiudary country,
bas removed all obstacles und bas opened
lo the world a vast tract of land second
to none in its boundless mineral resources.
Extensive mining operations are being
carrietl on in Soulh Fast Kootenay.
The North Star and Sullivan group yield
immense quantities of low-grade silver,
and the St. Eugene, Lake Shore and
others ou Moyie lake are famous for
their silver-lead deposits. Tl\e copper
properties on the Hull aud Elk rivets are
promising, ami placer mining is extensively carrietl on, on Perry, Weaver and
Wild Horse creeks. These are but lew
of the mauy successful ventures in mining investments. Fast Kooteuay also
possesses oneofthegreate&tcoal deposits
in tbe world. This coal will supply coke
for West, as well as East Kootenay
smelters. Already the Fernie coal mines
ou the Elk river have made large shipments of coke, and are supplying West
Kooteuay smellers,
Nor are minerals the only resource of
South East Kootenay. Unlike other
mining districts it has large tracts of
fertile land especially adapted to farm
j. roduce and stock railing, aud settlers
have tbe advautage ot being able lo get
a good cash price at home markets.
Another source of wealth to East Kootenay are the vast timber limits. There
are miles of unbroken forest land, tall
tamaracks, stout pines and gigantic firs.
Lumbering is one of tbe most important
industries in tbe Kootenays, and lumber
is shipped from there to all parts of the
Dominion.
South East Kootenay Is young, yet it
bas severat towns with bright and promising futures. Among othersare Feruie,
near the coal fields, headquarters for
mining supplies, Elko, Warduer and
Moyie, towns on the line. Kimberley,
the terminus of the North Star branch,
Fort Steele, the pioneer town, and Cranbrook. the divisional point of tbe C. V.
R. on the Crows Nest line, aud the
future great commercial center and
metropolis of Soulh East Kooteuay.
Truly, "South East Kootenay Is All
Right."
It is necessary that such a district
should have one commercial and government center, and that center should
he the most accessible from all parts of
tbe district. Geographically, Cranbrook
is most favorably situated and as a suitable railway ceuter, the towu bas no
rival.
Craubrook is an ideal western town.
It Is beautifully situated with mountains
rising on all sides, a rural park skirting
its limits, nnd a sparkling stream flowing
from far above the town, down one side
of Baker bill and over the green prairie
to the northeast of the town.
Until a few years ago the town waa
practically unknown. Although the
property was purchased by Colonel
Baker about 15 years ago, the present
townsite was not laid out till 1897. Tbe
colonel's residence on Baker hill was the
first step toward tbe now progressive and
up-to-date town, which is the headquarters for the transaction of all important
railway business concerning the Crows
Nest line aud Kimberley brancb, all
customs business for the district, and
banking busiuess for tbe towns of Wardner, Fort Steele, Kimberley and Moyie.
A great deal of lumber business is also
transacted iu Cranbrook. These various
conditions are fast making a uame for
the town.
During tbe past Cranhrook has not
been able to boast of superior, or even
ordinary, educational advantages, owing
to the rapid increase in tbe number of
school children, and the fact thut the
government grant for a echool, applied
for in one year, waa not supplied till the
next, aud was, consequently, insufficient
when received. At last, however, the
schoolboard has succeeded in providing
for that need, and has erected a handsome two.story building. This, with the
old building, affords ample accommodation.
Nor are the morals of Cranbrook
neglected. The town supports five
churches aud has Ihe good uame of being the best church going town in the
Kootenays.
The people of Cranbrook are justly
proud of their town, and Cranbrook, iu
turn, ought to be proud of its people.
There are no petty jealousies existing
socially, aud uo narrow-minded criticisms about other towns. Tbe people
are generous in their opinions and liberal
in the dispensation of good things.
They have never failed to respond heartily to auy action taken to further the interests of their town. Nor do they forget what they owe to the widespread influence of The Herald and its popular
etlitor, who, since coming here, has ever
shown thc greatest interest in the welfare of the town, who bas takeu an active part in all local enterprises, aud who
never fails, when Ibe opportunity --fiords,
I to sound the praises of "Beautiful Cran-
I brook "
WINNER   OF   SECOND   PRIZE.
! By Miss Minnie Grant,
South East Kootenay is a district with
great possibilities. Its healthy climate,
beautiful scenery and boundless resourses
are euought to make any place prominent. Hut peopled as it is with hardy, intelligent men, who doeverytbiug for the
benefit ofthe community, this portion of
mir fair Dominion will certainly become
a pride to the nation.
Its rugged mountain peaks, beautiful
green valleys and grass covered plains
could alone attract scores of people,
bul atlded to tbis there are coal, silver-
lead, gold, copper and iron deposits,
therefore prospecting is being vigorously
carrietl on with  most gratifying results.
Feruie is the center of the coal fields,
the value of which can only be ascertained by actual search, The eleven
overlying seams make a total thickness
of 148 feet of coal exposed, aud there are
indications of tbe presence of iron uear
them. Large daily shipments of coal
are being made, and 106 new coke ovens
are being constructed.
Moyie possesses valuable deposits of
high grade silver-lead. The principal
property, St. Eugene Consolidated, is
the second largest lead producer in
North America.
Elko is a growing towu at tbe crossing
or Elk river, forty-five miles east of
Cranbrook. It is in the midst ofa fertile district with splendid water power,
which, wilh the trade of Tobacco Plains,
will make it prosper.
Another town making rapid progress
is Michel. This station sprang into existence within the last year and u half,
and has uow one large store and mauy
cumfortable dwellings.
Fort Steele, situated on the Kootenay
River, about twelve miles fiom Cranbrook, is the present judicial ceuter of
South EaBt Kooteuay. Close behind It
are the mining properties of the Wild
Horse, which are becoming rapidly developed.
Twenty-two miles from Cranbrook, at
the terminus ofthe Nortli Slar brancb of
the C. P. R , is tbe town of Kimberley.
Near it is lhe North Star miue, which,
with a cupital of J|,000,000 is paying
dividends of 1 percent monthly. Here
also is the Sullivan which pays for development with the profits of tbe shipments.
Apart from the mines there is another
source uf wealth in tbis remarkable district. We can safely say, that there are
in this vicinity, extensive oil fields ouly
walling development to become very
valuable, and if the talked of new railroad is opened up in this part of the province, means of transportation will be
much cheaper, which will be a great
benefit.
But all tbis must have a commercial
center, aud ideal one is found in
Craubrook, situated in a delightful
valley between the Selkirk and Rocky
Mountains, It is nestled near the loot
of Mount Baker and is furnished with
excellent water from the surrounding
bills. Farms and ranches dot the prairie
at tbe foot of (he mountains, where fruits
and grains are grown abundantly, and
large herds of cattle graze on splendid
bunch grass, Not far from Cranbrook is
the town of Creston, located in tbis
farming district which is being experimented on by the government. But, to
return to Cranbrook: It is growing
rapidly and is getting all tbe modern improvements, such as electricity, waterworks aud graded roads. Many well
stocked stores have a large trade, and
the number of hotels, churches, banks
and schools are scattered about among
the comfortable residences that make
such favorable impressions on travellers.
The railway shops and the three sawmills employ a large number of men, the
latter having a daily total output of 70,-
000 feet of lumber.
Comparing the Cranbrook of today,
with that of some years ago, you are
struck with the almost miraculous progress that has been made. We can
scarcely believe tbe old time prospectors,
when they say that a few years ago this
,tretell oflaud, tbat is so thickly becoming inhabited antl adapted to the
use of man, wns the home of wild beasts
and Iudlaus, who roamed about at will.
Aud if it continues as it 1ms begun mauy
nf us will see the day when Cranbrook,
as llie center of this great district, will
be second to none in all that makes
wealth, with the huge chimneys of
smelters looming up above the giant
branches of magnificent trees, and un tbe
gentle breezes will be wafted the sound
of saws, making havoc among the beautiful pines that now form a protecting wall
around this lovely valley. We dlso expect to see, iu a time not far hence, on
the brow of one of these green bills, a
fine structure containing the government
offices ; and looking from tbem, we will
see trains coming from every direction,
laden wilh ore to be smelted and converted iuto machinery in tbe great me-
liopolis, "Beautiful Craubrook,"
Football Concert.
Next Tuesday evening a concert will
be given under the auspices of tbe
Cranbruok Football team. There should
be a large attendance. A good program has been prepared.

Al the end ofthe month of March the
St. Eugene Consolidated Miuing company declared a dividend for the three
months previous amounting to f 105,000.
At the present time the mine is partially
closed down ou account of the low price
of lead, but will resume operations as
soati as ibe lead market warrants it.
During the close down about 50 men
will be employed in the miue. The
force which will be required to operate
the diamond drill will also be employed,
as tbey have a contract which will take
two or three months to complete. In
this way during the close dowu there
will be more men employed in tbe St.
Eugene than are employed in some
mines in lhe country when ruuning full
force.

J.   C.   U'-UQAN   DEAD.
J C Mcl.igan, founder, editor and
chief owner of the Vancouver World,
died on Wednesday of lait week. Probably there Is not auother man ta British Columbia who will be to greatly
■tssed as will the deceased. He came
to this province when it was yet youug,
and when Vancouver was only two years
old he started the World. By his ■><
derful energy, strong wilt and great
abllitv he made tbe World, in a new
town and a new country, a power that
was felt and recognized not only in the
province, but all over Ctnada. Tbe
World was a daily eiponent of tbe mar*
velous .resources of British Columbia,
and day ln and day oui it has thrown Us
luflaence for tbe good of tbe province
aad tbe betterment of tbe conditions of
tbe people. Politically, Mr. McLagan
waa a Liberal, but he was not a hidebound partisan. This fact was beautl
fully Illustrated during the heated campaign last fall, wben Sir Charles Tupper
visited the coast. Politically, the
World was doing all In its power to
elect the Mberal candidate, yet Us editor published one of the best articles
written on theConservative War Horse's
trip across tbe continent. It was full
of kindness, respect and jmrnallstlc
courtesy, just inch an article that tbe
dead journalist would write of a political foe who commanded his personal
respect.
Vancouver will miss the mau who has
bean a potential power in the advance-
meat of the Terminal City, and his
death Is a great loss to that community. Hit friends will miss him and his
enemies will breath easier now that he
bas gone, The Herald can only tay
tbat such a man, doing what he has
doue, bat earned all the reward that
comet to humanity when they enter
Into the eternal sleep.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.

Tbe man who goes Inta a new country
on a aboeatrlng and cleans up a bunch
of money, is the last one who should
kick if times get a little quiet,
Tha shipping mines of Soulh East
Kootenay are great producers. Tbey

As a rt-Hult of much conflnnmeut

In figure and complexion, but. also
suffer mora or less from serious bodily derahgemohts ns tho result of thin,
Walory blood and exhausted nervous
system.
More than ulnu-tenths of lho coses
of diseases peculiar to women aro dl-

tha nerves, mid ean bo cured thoroughly and permanently by taking
mild out iloor exercise, breathing
plenty nf pure, fresh air nnd using
Dr. Chase's Norvo Food to form now

It takes time to build up tho system anew, to fill tho shrivelled arteries With now, rich blood, rostore tho
wasted nerve cells, and renew tho activities of the bodily organs, but tho
persistent   use   of   Dr.   Chase's   Nervo
Food win accomplish those results
and bring health and happiness to

A. W. McVittie came down Irom
Blairmore on Friday morning and returned on Saturday. He reports that
the Blairmore district is booming iu
good style now and says lhat crowds of
men are waiting for the survey of the
towusite. Mr. Geho, who is operating a
coal property about a mile and a half
west ofthe depot, is supplying tbe C. P.
R. wilb 50 tons a day, and tbe engineers
say it is the best coal used on the line
for steam purposes. Mr. Geho has sur*
veyed his owu townsile, but it is for hts
employes only, not for public sale. The
property owned by Messrs Baker, Proctor and Fishburn is being developed
steadily and will probably make one of
the richest coal mines ofthe Dominion
Messrs. McVittie and Little are developing a property about five miles east of
Blairmore which bids fair to be the finest property of the district. Already a
40-root seam of pure coking coal has
been opened up and their men are now
uncovering numerous seams of a width
of from four to twelve feet. This property consists of about 8000 acres and
will certainly cause a stir when opened

when lhe train pulled out, the dog tiled

Robinson hi Vancouver.
Vancouver World; J W Robinson, of
Cranbrook, a well known lumber dealer
of the interior, who has been in the city
ur a few days, left for home this, Friday,
afternoon. "We want the railway direct
from the coast in the worst way," he
snid, "and competition if possible. As
it is now in Kast Koutenay we get most
of our goods in a long haul from Winnipeg an<l the east, and in West Koote*
nay the whole trade goes to Spokane,
We are just as anxious to have the road
as thc people at the coast are, aud we
cannot have it any too soon. Things
will be busy around Cranhrook this
year," he remarked further. "The C.
P. R will do considerable work, as tbe
company is enlarging its roundhouse aud
workshop, aud it is the intention to put
the Cro* s Nest Pass line inlo the best of
shape. Then, too, the work which will
follow the granting ofthe charter to tbe
Crows Nest Southern railway will make
things very busy iu Kast Kootenay.
Mr. Robiusou is a former resident of
Vancouver and nt oue time was on the
World stall' He expressed his grief at
the death of his former chief, and paid a
tribute to his memory by saying that a
worthier man never lived.
