find it.    It is situated in tbe sou* b east
ern corner of British Columbia, am)
covers many stjuare tnUesofrlcb mining,
timber and agricultural lands. Until
late years, these mint- bave uot been
extensively developed, although in 1S64
and following yeais many millions of
dollars where taken out of Wild Horse
and Palmer Dar creeks. The principal
mineral is galena. The most important
mines, now shipping ore, are tbe St.
Eugene and Lake Shore mines at Moyie,
and the Sullivan group and North Star
mines at Kimberley- Besides the galena
mines'there are rich coal fields at Fernie
and Michel. The Fernie coal mines are
now being largely worked, and the 210
coke ovens are kept burning continually.
The timber Is another great resource of
South Kast Kootenay, as tliis district is
thickly wooded, and lumbering is one of
tbe principal industries. South Hast
Kootenay has mauy important towns:
Cranbrook, Fernie. Moyie, Fort Steele
and others. Of these flourishing towns
Cranbrook is tbe natur.il center of the
district, both as regards its situation and
its convenience to olh>*r parts of the
district. It is situated on a broad, level
flat, some mites in extent, and has the
Joseph and Smith creeks running
through it, supplying it witb pure, fresh
water. It is a division 011 tbe Crow's
Nest railway, and is the home of the
superintendent of Ihe division. The
round bouse and work shops, which employ over a hundred met), are in the
town. The C. P. R. yard is quite large,
holding over 500 cars. Tbe station
is large and comfortable and tbe freight
shed is commodious. Cranbiook is also
the junction of tbe Crows Nest and North
Star railways.
Cranbrook   commercially is the acknowledged center of South Hast Koot-
The Bank of Commerce has a branch
here, and does busiuess for many ol the
surrouuding towns.
There are three saw-mills in Cranbrook, the Craubrook Lumber company
slatted iu 1X97, aud have had no alack
season yet, Robinson Sl MeKenzie and

good business.
The hotels are numerous, being seven
in uumher, and afford good accommodation to the public. The Cranbrook was
tbe pioneer hotel, but when tbe town began to grow a little the others came
thick aud fast.
Cranbrook boaste ofoueof the best run
newspapers iu South Hast Kooteuay.
The news of the town and district, and
the current events ofthe world are all
accurately recorded. Its circulation, too,
is considerable; it bas now completed

years of publication has doue much to

The educational system baa not been
all that could be wished, but Is becoming better. Tbe number of school attending children is 140. Three large
comfortable rooms have been provided,
each presided over by a capable teacher.
To a town the size and age of Cranbrook the churches are a credit. No less
than five roomy churches have been
erected, all of which arelargely attended,
so much so, that Craubrook has the
name of being the best church-attending
town in tbe Kootenays,
When we see the residences and stores
lhat now fuiui Cranbrook. we cau hardly

the town consisted of tbe old customs

rumored that the mill is to be run two or
three days each week, and some ore
taken from the dump to be ruu through,
Iu all probability tbis is what will be
done, and will be continued until tbe
mine opens up in full force. Tbe St.
Eugene is too good a property to be

Tbe Crows Nest Southern railway bill
h-js passed tbe railway committee, ofthe
house of commons, and the chatter will
be granted, The vote was uuaiiinujs,
and was based on the following agreement:
Agreement between tbe Craws Nest
Coal company, lhe Crows Nest Southern
railway and His Majesty tbe King herein represented '■•* the government ofthe
Dominion. Til* ; eatuble recites the
■ tauten 1 lor a charter
be coal company and
ny for divers good and
lions do hereby coven*
nmeut .*.*-> follows:
hex b\ the action of
tbe coal company in regard to the piices
at which coal or cuke shall be sold, nor
by the action of the railway company respecting the cost of transportation,
whether by discrimination rebates or
otherwise, nor by the action of both inch
companies, either acting by themselves
alone or iu connection with transports-
tiou agencies without the international
boundry lines, shall coai or coke either
or boih be sold for consumption outside
ot Canada or to consumer's outside of
Canada at prices wbicb discriminate uu-
fairly against consumers iu Canada.
12.1 If at anytime upon satisfactory
evidence being given to the governor*
generalin-caur.cil ke should be of opinion that tbe spirit of this agreement is
being violated and every such case, and
when aud so often as such violation occurs the governor-ger-eral-in-coucnil
may impose upon tbe ccal company aod
tbe railway company such restrictions
and conditions respecting sales or supplies of coal or coke and tbe transportation thereof to or ior the use of consumers outside of Canada for such a length
of time and within such times as he may
think fit. with a view to preventing such
unfair discriminations.
Ij) The order-in-ccuncil imposing
such restrictions and conditions shall be
published in the Canada Gazette, and if
after such publication ibe coal company
sell or supplies coai or coke or the railway company transports coal or coke
contrary to the terms of such order, the
company so violating tbe terms of such
order shall pay, and hereby covenants to
repay to the government as liquidated
damages for such breach the sum or £3
for each and every ton of coal or coke io
sold or supplied or transported. The
amount of such damages to be recovered
by action by tbe attorney-general of
Canada on behalf of the government In
any court of competent jurisdiction.
(4 ) The reason for requiring the laid
companies to en:er into tbis agreement
being tbat at present it is believed by
the government that there is no eff-clive
and satisfactory competition by other
coal and coke producers iu Canada. It
is agreed lhat when t.y order of the
governor-general-in-council it is declared
that by the opening of other coal mines
or the manufacture of eke by others
such effective and satisfactory competition has arisen that this agreement shall
terminate with respect to coal or coke
both, according to the nature of such
Mr, Sifton accepted the suggestion
that the lasl clause should be  amended,
provided that Instead of tbe agreement
terminating it should only be suspended
during tbe continuance of effective and
satisfactory competition.
