Mc Is Reported   lor  Cuuraj-cuus anil  Intelligent Action.
The   Herald   is  in   receipt   o( 0 letter
from  Sydney J   Muikbaiu,   fuuiitrly  of
Craubrook, but now in South Africa, enclosing a copy of general orders calling
attention lo ihe bravery of Corporal J.
Hendry, of eastern Canada, nnd Trouper
William Stewart, well known iu this
district am) a former resident of Sand
creek. The portiou ol the order u-IjIiuk
to these men is as follows:
"The inspector general desires to
draw attention to a very commendable
piece of dispatch riding successfully accomplished by No. A, 1676, Corporal J.
Hendry, No. 5 troop, and No A, 1S84,
Trooper W, N. Stewart, No. 13 Troop
"A" division. These men left Botha-
ville ou 28th February with Important
dispatches for Colonel Kekewich ut
Woliuaraiibtad, 40 miles distant. In
their first attempt Ihey were driven
back by Boers, and trying again on the
ist March, were a second time forced to
return, but the third time they were successful and managed to get to Wolma-
ranstad. Here they found tbe Boers in
possession, and were pursued by them.
They fortunately got 011 to lhe spoor tf
Colonel Kekewicb's column and follow*
ed it up, reached bim in due course.
Tbey were both strange to tbe country
and the plucky and intelligent manner
in which they carried out the Important
duty entrusted to ibem is worthy of the
highest praise, and has been lully reported to the commander-in-chief.

II Is Reported That They Have Nine
Feet uf Oaleua.
The Sullivan Is Preparing to Resume Operations In the
Near Future.
Mining news this week is further evidence ofthe fact tbat Smith liast Kootenay is a vast treasure house of precious
metuts. The latest and oue of the most
satisfactory pieces of news received for a
long time, Is that of 11 big strike of gu-
leua on the North Star property. It ia
reported that last week while operating
the diamond drill a vein of galena ore
was struck that showed between seven
and nine feet. This is exceedingly gratifying, since it demonstrates that this
celebrated property will continue to pay
dividends for a long time to come
Arrangements have been completed
for the North Star to commence shipping, and tbis also meaus a large addition to the force. This increased work
on that property is a good thing for tbe
district, and simply emphasizes the fact
that South East Kootenay is bound to be
a marvelously rich section.
The Aurora.
Tom Rader of Moyie, wai in town last
week. He is one of the owners uf the
Aurora property, which is located just
across the lake from the St. Eugene, and
was feeling very good over a strike of
three feet of galena, iu a new portiou of
the claim. Work has been inaugurated
on tb s part ofthe claim owing to water
in the shaft, and the change proved to
be a lucky one.
The Sullivan.
In all probability work will be resum-
1 on the Sullivan in a very short time.
Just as soon as the smelter at Marysville
is near completion active operations wil-
commence at tbe mine. Mr. Hull, general manager of the properly, is in the
east uow, aud white there will arrange
with the railroad company for the con-
Iruction of a tramway to bring the ore
down from the mine.
The St. Eugene.
Tbe new boilers thai have been in*
tailed at the St. Bugene are of far
greater power than the old ones, which
would indicate that tbe company is pre-
paring for an iminenne atuouut of heavy
woik. Everything is getting in shape
about the properly for work, and it is
generally conceded that operations will j
he resumed withiu n short time.
Perry Creek.
Messrs. Thompson and Hunks are busy
pumping the water out of their mine
three fourths of a mile up tbe creek
from Old Town. When the water is all
out they will put in a large new pump.
The mine has been closed for two or
three months, consequently it was full
of water and a big j »b to get it all out.
It will Like them two or three w.eka yet
to clear it. This is the famous placer
mine Lhat yielded  su  well last summer.
Mrs J. O. Trow of Wisconsin, arrived

Creek Mining company's camp.
Gus Tbies has leaied an interest in
the Thompson and Banks property and
work is being pushed as fast as possible.
Oliver Burge bas been clearing and
beauiitying tbe park around Old Towu
making It au ideal place for picnics.
Old Town, Perry creek, isjustanice

The recent rains are clearing the snow
trout the mountains, giving lhe prospectors a chance of which they are taking
nd vantage every line day.
Jimtnle Larfoti has left his Interests at

ti.   II.  tiilpln'a  Business  Shows  Immense
The name of Gilpin Is familiar to every
resident in this part of South East Kootenay, and men and women from over a
large territory trade at that store. G
II. Gilpin first located in Fort Steele at
the time ol the big boom iu this district.
Later he established a branch in Cranbrook and afterwards closed his Fort
Steele store and opened a branch in
Moyie, A few mouths ago he closed his
Moyie branch and concentrated his business in Cranbrook, figuring that as tbis
was the center of the district he could
better command the trade of the tributary territory from this point. To carry
out this idea he arranged to enlarge and
extend his business by preparing for
more room and increasing his stock.
A uew two story building, 24 by 100 feet,
with a cellar 70 feet long, was built, just
in the rear of bis old store building and
connected hy a passage way. The former building is two stories, 115 by 24
feet thus giving him 12,000 square feet
of store room. The original store room
facing Baker street will be used for dry
goods, groceries, clothing, boots, shoes,
etc. The rear room on the second floor
will be used for packing and shipping
purposes. The second Boor of the new
building facing Armstrong avenue will
be devoted to furniture, bedding, carpets,
etc. On the first floor of this building
the front part will be used for china,
stoves and tinware, Bnd tbe rear part for
machinery, feed and goods of that character. The various departments are being conveniently arranged for the display of the many lines ot goods carried
and purchasers once entering tbe store
vau find almost anything wanted in any
line. In addition to the large store
rooms, Mr. Gilpin has an oil warehouse
in another part of the town,
These additions to his business shows
Mr. Gilpin's confidence in Cranbrook
aud the district. And he is not a plunger, but a conservative, careful business
man who looks ahead aud prepares himself accordingly.
Such a store is a credit to Cranbrook
and a credit to the district, and Mr. Gil
pin is to be congiatulated for bis energy
and his success.
Further Evidence  of the Riches  of
This District.
Great Steel Works Will Be Built
There In the Very Near
The whole district of South East Kootenny is greatly interested in lhe development of the iron mines at Kitchener,
which has beeu carried ou under tbe
supervision of W. Blakemore, the well
known mining engineer. He has spent
the winter in Montreal, and last week
came west, going to Nelson. On
Monday he passed through Cranbrook
eiirotile to Pernie, aud The Herald man
was fortuuute enough to meet him at
the stutton.
"Is it true that there will be no further
development work nn tbe Kitchener
iron properties," was asked of the gentle ma 11 .
"Absolutely so," Mr. Blakemore replied, "simply because it is not necessary to expend any more money iu thai
direction. I have been satisfied from
the start tbat we had a big thing, and
our investigations and assays the past
winter have demonstrated that we have
one of tbe best iron properties known.
We hnve it on tbe best of authority that
our ore runs higher in metallic iron and
lower in sulphur than the famous Lake
Superior Iron. There is nothing more
to he done now, until tbe time is ripe
for the establishment of steel works and
tbe development of tbe mines. Tbe
state of tbe market and tbe general condition of affairs iu the province would
not justify the large expenditure which
this would involve at the moment, but
the company is prepared to go ahead on
the lines outlined as soon as such a
course is justifiable. Meanwhile plans
are being prepared and tbe necessary
preparations being made for the erection
of a steel plant and tbe actual work will
be inaugurated at no distant date. This
season no work will be dace on the
property except the necessary assessment work on properties bonded. The
company bas crown granted sll tbe
claims which it has purchased."
This means that South East Kootenay
has proven beyond all question that it is
the richest district in all of Canada, having within its boundaries all of tbe ele
uients of great wealth, and lhat the development means aucb changes in this
district that the mind of the average
man today cannot comprehend what
tbe future will bring forth.
Mr. Blakemore goes west in a few
days to examine coal property tor the
Similkameen Valley Coal company and
other property that promises great re-
turna to the investors,
Railway Nates.
Work is to be commenced shortly on
the Dew stations to be erected st Creston,
B. C, and Frank, Alta. The extension
is also to be built to tbe freight shed at
The new standard train rules took effect on the western division on May 1.
Tbey ere almost identical with the rules
force on the Grand Trunk and the
larger American lines.
Breckenriilge & Lund have secured
the contract for grading the new croas-
ing sidings being put in between Fort
Steele junction and Wardner, between
Wardner and Jaffray and between Crows
Nest and Hlairmore.
Thc bridge over the Kootensy river
at Wardner was turned last week for tbe
lirst time in two years Captain Armstrong intend-; to b ring his steamer, the
North Star, up the river as soon ss thc
w ater rises sufficiently to admit of it,and
Bridge Inspector Stocks made a test ot
tbe bridge in anticipation. The steamer
is now tying about half a mile below
Wardner wailing high water.
Word has been received as to the appointment of uew license commissioners
Inr this district. The names are J. D.
McBride, Cranbrook; E. A. Elton. Fori
Steele; Mr. Whimster, Fernie. Constable Barnes was reappointed license inspector.

Marysvllle Tribune
All that bas been said to the contrary
notwithstanding Marysvllle stands, today, with as bright a future before her
as any town In the Kooteoayi, Naiur-
ally situated as the gateway to tbe
upper St. Marys country, that home of
mineral wealth, that section second to
none In the whole piovince, from a
mining point of view, she will without
doubt become a great mining center.
Situated as she Is as the only outlet for
the North Star and Sullivan hills aud
the mining district behind them. She
must be a good town.
As tne location point of the smeker,
she must be a pay roll town and that
pay roll tf necessity must be a large
one. Marysvllle Is also the center of a
large lumbering aud raochlng district
which, In turn also, must add Tery
materally to her wealth. Again, as the
starttog point and as ibe base of supplies for tbe construction of the proposed railway to Pilot Hay on Kootcoay
lake, she will become a great railway
After a few moments con-*ideratlono f
all these advantages he must be a
skeptic Indeed who doubts Marysvllle**
future greatness.
We doubt If there Is a town In the
whole length and breadth ot Uts great
Pacific Province that has so many
advantages both natural and commercial. A look at the townsite will convince any one, let him come from any
quarter of the globe, tbat we have a
most beautiful piece of earth on which
to build a town. The rivei ou one side
with s background of mountains rising
skyward covered, as tbey are, wltb tt
and tamarac Is a picture for artists
to dream of. Tbe creek on tbe west
side, a fast Sowing mountain stream,
the Dome of millions of brook troat, Is
as pretty sight as ore could wish to see.
The seemingly endless park like conntry
on tbe east sod north bouadarys of tbe
town Is great change from tbe cisso
wooded heavily uuderbiusbed counlTj
so peculiar to tbe Mountains. In fact
from a scenic poiut of view Marvsvllle Is ao Ideal townsite.
Of coarse we cannot live on scenery
in Marysville any more than we can In
any other town, and there is no reason
to do so. Marysvllle will without doubt
be a great pay roll town for many
years. Mechanics of all kinds wilt be
wanted here to assist in the reduction
of tbe ores that will be treated by tbt
ssselter company, laboreis will be Deeded, carpenters and builders will be in
request to aid In the building of the
many residents and other building*
which will rapidly be erected; Marysville will be the supply poiot for tbe
miners and prospectors of the district,
and therefore It wid be tbe home of a
large number of merchants and traders.
In fact Marysville position is now aa'
All tbe elements lhat go towards
making a good town are here and therefore Marysville must be a good towo.
Those who are lucky enough to have
property in Marysville can rest assured
that ax no distant date, tbe bread that
tbey have thrown on the waters will
come back with a very substantial Increase.
We say again as we have said before.
"Stay with yoar district and your town
because they are good places to up to,"
will b« a good thing for the town.

The Entrc Nous s Success.
The Entre Nous club gave ita last
dance of the season Wednesday evening
at Wentworth hall. This club waa organized last fall, and during the winter
has given a number of dances tbat have
proven a great success, and done much
to add to the social reputation of Cranbrook. Each dance has been well attended, aud the young ladles and men
in charge are to be congratulated upon
tbe pleasant time afforded those who
have attended.
The success of the undertaking means
tbat lieu-after the I-.litre Nous will be a
permanent social institution In Craubrook, and one whose entertainments

Marysville Tribune.
K. D. Saunders oue of the member*
of the board of control of the Sullivan
Group Mining Company arrived lu
Marysvllle on Wednesday.
Mr. Saunders was seen on Thursday,
by a Tribune man and he said 1 "I have
come here In absolute charge of tbe
work of construction and shall remain
here during ft. W. Hull's absence la the
east. While I shall make as few
changea as possible, there are some
which 1 have found It necessary to
make. A. L. Antiln is severing bis connection wltb tbe company and his place
will be taken by a uew superintendent,
st an early r-ate. All work wilt be
pushed forward with great raptdty- I
cannot aay tbat tbe work baa progressed as fast as I bad hoped it would but
there Is no doubt that It will now go
ahead as fast as money and men can
make It go, and we intend to nave an
absolutely up-to-date plant so as to be
In a position to treat our ores to perfection."
Tbe Bachelors' Ball.
Considerable interest Is being manifested iu the Bachelors' ball, which is to

to make the event one of tbe best In the
social history of Cranbrook. The invitations sre out and are both neat and

af a commission to investigate ibe al*
leged Irregularities In connection with
the administration ol th ■ Liquoi License
act in thla dtsttlct. fnie, we di I uot

which have been circulated foi lhe past
year or two, simply because ive have no

formation which justifies the pollcj
which u has pursued in connection with
this matter it certainly deserves credit
for lhe stand it has taken, but if ou the
other hand u is Inspired lo give circulation to tbe.se rumors foi some selfish
motive aud having no prool with which
to buck up its articles, thai pnper cei
tainly deserves lo be censured.
In regard to Coiuinissionei Stork, the

doubt bis integtlly'for a moment. Th ■
oilier two commissioners aie com para
live strangers to us, mid wc certaluly
would not clrculule vague tumors to
their discredit without having substantia] proof tlmi tbey are correct.
The Free Ereab is entitled to an apology relative to The Herald's statement
that nothing had appeared In lhat paper
regarding the proposed investigation.
The article was overlooked by The Herald, As tu circulating rumora, The Herald has taken the stand from the start,
that since such rumors are in circulation
it is only just lo the people at large and
to the Individuals affected, lhat an in
vesication should be held. It lhe rumors ure without foundation, it is time
that this fact should he known. The
Herald has uo selfish motive, unless the
desire to promote the best interests o1
lhe district may be considered selfish.
It hus uo axe to grind, uo friends to
boost into ollice und no enemies lo displace. It wants to see fair play in the
district where ii is published. If there
has beeu any crooked work in the giant
ing of licenses, directly m Indirectly,
the public is entitled io kuow the facts,
If nil this talk is simply Ibe woik ol
some disappointed'' and vindictive individuals, it is time thul this should be
known ami the official atmosphere
The Herald is pleased lo see lhu- Free
Press speak so highly of the integrlt) ol
Mr. Slork. who some time ago favored
this paper with liO view-- on ibis matter.
The Herald Is convinced that Mr. Stork
will greet au Investigation with pleasure.
Innocent men have uo fear of investlga
tion. There are others who will be
pleased to see an investigation, ami The
Herald believes that the Free Press is
among that number, Why should those
connected wilb lhe commission be subjected lo abuse aud slander when they
are innocent. The members are all old
residents of the district, They should
be protected. It is not right to drag
their names through the mire unless
tlierei.sciiu.se. Let the truth be kuown
and put to rest for nil time this most uu
fortunate matter, This is not a movement for the display of malice; il is one
for honesty nud fair play The llerubl

You should if you don't. It gives the news of

The dislrict as a whole contributed in
revenues during lhe yeare'ndlugjuue 30,
1901, $98,876.14, ihe north ridtug giving
$14,714.77. and the south riding J77 041.-
27, There is a discrepeiicy of $6220.60,
as this amount cannot wiih accuracy be
apportioned lo either ol the districts.
But here is where the mill; ill the
cocoa-fill is shown, fhe north titling,
represented by Hon. W. C. Wells, cabinet in in is ler. man with a pull, etc , with
revenues amounting to $14,71*1 27. receives for roads, trai s  and bridges, JaS,
646,65, while S mlb East Kooteu iy, with
revenues aggregating $77,941 27. gels in
return for such Improvements, ibe paltry
sum of 815,703 yo.
Aud yet the papers of that little baili
wick grew very indignant a Jew mouths
ago when Tbe Herald stated 111 plain
language, that this riding, witli Us vast
interests, its greater population and its
greater need, bad been discriminated
against hy the Honorable .Mr. Wells, in
favor of bis homo riding,
This year the same discrimination Is
shown, since the two ridings, with revenues far fiom even, aie given lhe
same amount in the appropriations* ft4,-
500, It is such rank wotk as this that
is disgusting the province with the
Dunsmuir outfit.
When British Columbia's government
gets through With   Its  railway grunts, it
can economize by cutting down expenses
on its immigration bureau. Wi.t-n llic
lam) is nl) given away the Immigration
buieaii will no longer be ueeded.
The Herald hns added nbout thirty
five names m its list during the past
week, and not a single subscription was
solicited. The people recognize in The
Herald R district pnptr. ,
