The latest development in the Illnck
Bearsluwi the ore to carry good gold
values as greater depth is attained. In
sampling tbe vein at a depth of twelve
feet to determine what character of ore
carried the best values, the following assays were obtained: Galena, So 6
per cent Jlead, 37 ounces silver,
value $99 97, Galena ami iron pyrites, copper 2 per cent, lead 29.8

Tlie foot wall, showing a great deal of
mineralization, wns assn ed and gave:
Copper 0.3 per cent, gold "■ jounce; total
value, $7.30. The above assay returns
make an average value of $61 i,(i for lhe
entire vein. The vein is now widening
out and has every appearance of opening out iuto a large ore chute. The
property has every prospect of making
one of Kimbetley's best producers of
mineral. The change in the location
liue of the North Star branch railway
has materially benefitted the property,
as the track will be within fifty feet of
the ore dump. Work Is being pushed
on the Black Bear in order to get as
much depth as possible before the railroad is completed. Mr. Estmere is confident that if the vein continues to show
up aB it does now the property will pay
for the cost of development by shipping
the ore which must of necessity be
taken out.        __
On Saturday last tbe affidavits were
sworn by the manager of the Lake Shoie
mine fur water rights on Wilson creek.
The water will be carried six and one
hall to the Lake Shoie aud will give 3S0
inches of water, which means power
enough to run a very large concentrator.
Work on the ditch and Hume will be
commenced as soon as tbe water right is

Mining Notes.

More miners and prospectors are coming to Cranbrook each week to secure
their supplies. And the number will be
greatly increased as soon as the North

congratulations were offered the party

happy one in every respect,

Clark jumped and escaped injury. But

bruised and cut about the head and face,

Fort Sttele Prospector. Sept. 2: About
9 o'clock Friday morning smoke was
seen issuing from the upper floor of the
Hotel International, and inside of an
hour the hotel, together with the building of T. C. Armstrong, occupied as a
liu shop; C A. KUugensuiith's, occupied
by M. A. Beale as offices of tlie Dominion Express company, aud a small building of C. Leutner were totally destroyed
involving a loss of probably £30,000.
The fire raged wilh great intensity,
and the buildings opposite narrowly es
coped destruction, Iuside of two min
utes after the alarm was sounded the
fire brigade was on the grouud and had
streams of water ou the fire. It was to
their heroic efforts that the town was

But little was saved from the International, and it may be counted a total loss
lor Mr. Shier.
It is the first lire of any magnitude
that has visited Port Steele, and the
streets were thronged with people, aud
all ofthe male population were engaged
iu saving property. That the Oriental
was not destroyed was due to the fire
brigade, whose efforts, when it was apparent that the International and adjoining buildings could not be saved,
were directed to saving the buildings
opposite, the iuflamable nature of the
building making it herculean task, but
it was accomplished aud the loss was
mostly from water.
There was uo great excitement. The
members of the brigade worked like
beavers, and received commendation
froui all of the citizens, Many of the
firemen rushed into the flames enveloped in wet blankets, while some were
somewhat scorched.
The porter of the hotel was burned
about the head, but not seriously in
jured. There were no other accidents
How the fire originated no one seemi
to know, as the flues iu the portion of
the building where the fire started are
all of brick. Smoke was first discerned issuing from the attic, and it is
thought it started between the two
buildings comprising the hotel.
Oue individual whose name could not
be ascertained rushed out upon the
porch shortly after the alarm was given,
clad in his underwear, aud slid down
one of tbe posts to the street.
Loss by Fire.
The total loss on the Fort Steele fire
was about (20,000. The insurance was
small. That's poor judgment nnd poor
business. You mny be next. We are

A Citizen Says Craobrook Is del iin 1 Mighty
Little Benefit.
Why dou't this part of the district
receive any benefit from the money appropriated for wads and bridges"" asked
one citizen of another in the Cosmopolitan hotel yesterday. "Take the work
that has beeu done this year. Aside
from a little bridge and some work ou
the Mission road, what has there been
done that would be of any benefit to
Cranbrook, or properties tributary to
Cranbrook ? Of course, there was not as
much money appropriated as the dis
trict should have, but it would seem
that this part should receive what it is
entitled to. It looks as if all the money
was beiug spent in other places. I don't
understand it."
As uo one seemed lo be able to give
any explanation, the questions remained

The Port Steele fire should be a lessou
:o every householder in Craubrook.
Had it not ben for the Rre proteclion
enjoyed by Port Steele, the whole town
would have probably been swept by fire.
Will the people nf Craubrook wait until
they have Buffered severe loss in that
way before they take decisive action ?
At this time there is plenty of water.
but UO facilities ior using It, There is
no hose, uo carls, no buckets, no ladders, no organisation, nothing but the
absolute certainty that if a fire starts it
hIU not atop until tbere ts uolhlng left
to burn.
Suppose, for instance, Unit n Are
should originate iu the Cranbrook hotel,
tbe Commercial, or the Mclnnes oi Hanson blocks? What could be done ? The
people would be helpless, and Halter
street, withiu two hours lime, woul 1 be
a mass of smouldering ruins. Many of
thc busiuess meu would lie bankrupt,
and the town would suffer a loss thai
might be irreparuble. Do lhe people of
Cranbrook fully appreciate what Hint
would mean? Dou't ihey know that a
town without buildings or business is
uot a town .' Don't lhey know lhat
properly would at once depreciate, and
that lots selling now foi fiouo to (1500
would go begging at hall the price.
But, some one will say, "1 don'l own
any property,'* 01 * I have uo building
on my lot, therefore a lire ciiniiol hurt
me," That is a mistake. Every individual in the town, whether be ts u
properly owner or whether lie is without
property and without a stock of goods
to lose, in Interested In fire protection.
If Baker street was swept by lire tonight
how many men would be without employment lomorrow morning? Those
who sit now in fancied security
and contentment, because tbty are
drawing a salary al the end of each
mouth, would be confronted with a
change in conditions thai would force
home to thein the cotivictioil that Ihey
are interested in the proteclion of the
town. It is to Ih*.- Interest uf everyone
that proper facilities for lighting fire
should be provided.
In the laugunge of a statesman in the
