The hum of Industry ia already beard

as West Kootenay, The day is not far

What a Traveler Through East Kootenay
Has to Say of (he Town.
Mr Basil 6. Hamilton In the Golden
Miner: By far tbe greatest competitor
for the trade of Fori Steele is Cranbrook
(■•Beautiful Cranbrook"), from which il
is twelve miles distant northeast. Cranbrook is sixty iniles nortli of the international boundary line, near to the
Dawdney trail, the great line of traffic
to Southern British Colombia Iu early
days, aud not far distant from the one
which leads to Walla Walla. When
travelers were few aud lhe population of
the country scanty 1 Craubrook first be
came a place of importance; this it derived from lhe fact that -the customs
house and necessary buildings were
established theie. Around the town are
situated home very fine farming lauds,
adapted either for pastoral or agricultural uses; near by is a supply of timber that will last for years. The principal mines of this part, including tbe
North Star, St. Eugene and Sullivan
group**, all making large outputs, will be
iu close communication with the town,
and will have a down haul for their ores
all the way. Coal fields, from the product of which coke will be made, are
sixty miles distant, at Fernie. Iu the
treatment of ores by smelter it requires
on an average twelve tons of coke to
treat eighty-eight tons of ore. These
two substances must be brought together
at a point where smelters may be located;
here is the place required;'plenty of
room aud central, with easy grades for
the hauling. In addition to this, there
is lhe furiher and greater advantage
that in aud near Cruubrook there is not
only limestone, bul a variety of good
ores suitable for fluxing. If it were not
for this, the good ores could not be
treated without bringing fluxes a considerable distance. The townsite has
three creeks running through It, which
yield 700 gallons per minute; two springs
water which never freeze. They are so
situated that there will be no difficulty
and Utile expense in forming from them
a supply for au admirable system of
waterwoi ks.

The Lake Shore Mine.
Moyie Leader: The bin at the Lake
Shore mine is full to the brim of clean
ore—nearly ten carloads—and there is
plenty of ore on every baud in the mine.
The chute of ore In ihe upraise is continually widening and lhe ore becoming
of a higher grndc. As soon as the siding
is finished the owners will begin ship*
ping aud adding to the working force.
Siding for the Mines.
Moyie Leader: The building of the
siding in Moyie Cily for the accommodation of the mine owners is no longer
in doubt. The grading was actually begun last Thursday aftertioou and is now
beiug pushed as rapidly as circumstances
will permit. It will be a siding, not a
spur, as was first supposed, and will be
500 feet in length. The building of the
siding assures the mine owners that they
can immediately commence shipping
ore and they will commence making
preparations at ouce with that object in
view, It will only take a week or ten
days to complete lhe grading and laying
the steel.
The St. Eugene ore bin at the siding
is well tinder way and will he ready to
receive ore by the time the siding will be
in shape for lhe cars. A gangway is being built from the sleigh road to tbe top
of the bin so that the sleighs loaded with
ore may bu hauled up over the bin and
easily unloaded. It is very substantially
built, and is ao situated that the ore can
be run into lhe cars through chutes
withoul extra handling.
Americans have sold to British interests about $11,000,000 worth of mining

Porks or Cascade City, Mr, Aldrich is

The rumor lhat the Brilish-American
Corporation would move their newly acquired smelter plant from Northport to
Say ward 1 so as to have all their possessions under the British flag, is without

the corporation's office manager. The
law of the state of Washington lhat no

Great Advancement.
Colonel James Baker returned last
evening from England, where he has
been for the past four months visiting
his old home and attending to business
matters that will efentnally result in

V. Hyde Baker, who is just recovering
from a long siege of sickness, and also

A representative of Ths Herald
called on the colonel at bis home this
morning and found him both looking
and feeling well after his sojourn abroad.
He was pleased, however, to return to
Cranbrook, and expressed great surprise
aud pleasure at the progress the towu
had made since his departure last
"I find on my journey back," said the
colonel, "that Craubrook is most favorably spoken of by the people wbo have
visited South East Kootenay, ami that
the whole territory has materially advanced in the opinion of the people.
The true worth of this section is beiug
appreciated by the people on the outside, aud the next few years will be prosperous years for the entire district. I
will go on to Victoria Saturday to be
present at the opcuing ol the legislature.
It was decidedly inconvenient for me to
return at this time, as I was iu tbe midst
of business negotiations iu London that
really demanded my presence. But I
will return to England early in the
spring to carry forward certain matters
that are now pending.
"I declare I was surprised at the
change that has taken place in Cranbrook since I left. When I got off the
train last evening I found a crowd on
the plationn that made it difficult for
me to push my way through. Then I
noticed store buildings and residences
had beeu built in great numbers since I
left. But, as I have always said, Cranbrook is all right. She will grow on her
merits, and this territory will be a most
prosperous oue."
Tbe colonel will leave Saturday morning for Victoria, and expects to be there

Reasoner, and in the future will have exclusive control, Mr. Ksake hu had
many busiaess matters to occupy his
time, but these be has succeeded in closing up so that in the future he will de*
vote bis entire attention to the management of the place. He wilt change the
policy that has prevailed in the past, so
that in the future the Commercial will
rank with the best Hotels in tbe Kootenays. He has one of the best hotel
buildings in the country, and its location

make many improvements both down

material changes that have been made
in the furnishings dming tbe past few
Mr. Kaake proposes to be ready for
the increased business tbat will come to
tbe hotels, as well ss every other line in
East Kootenay next spring, and when
he starts to do anything ef the kind he
generally succeeds. With more time at
his disposal Mr. Kaake will make the
Commercial hotel one of tbe best and
most favorable known throughout the
mining districts of British Columbia.
The Time aad Place to Bay Clothes.
Cranbrook is fortunate in having a
first-class tailor from the east, who has
done high-class work all his life. John
A. Leask has come to Cranbrook to live.
He has bought property here and erected
a building, and last week received tbe
largest and finest invoice of suitings ever
brought into East Kootenay. If you
care what kind of clothes you wear it
will du yuu good to see them, and it
won't cost you a cent. If you want a
suit of duihes that will fit you ami look

they will surprise you, take advantage of
the opportunity presented and call upon

E. H. Irvlte. Well Known It Cranbrook.
Dies at Butie. Mont.
Those readers of Thk Herald who
knew Mr. B. H. Irvine, of Butte, Mont,
during his stay in South East Kootenay
will read with regret the news of his
death recently tt Butte. Mr. Irvine left
Crrnbrook last fall sick with the fever,
but alter e siege of sickness at tbe home
of his son-in-law in Butte, be seemed to
mend, but took a relapse and after 1 few
weeks of illness passed nway. The Buite
Inter-Mountain, commenting on Mr.
Irvine's death, hss this to say:
E. II. Irvine, a nctice of whose death
appeared in yesterday's Inter Mountain,
was bom in Kentucky October it, 1H37,
and eniigiated to Missouri with his par-*
cuts when a boy. He married Miss Ann
Eliza I-'orbis in Missouri in 1859, an 1
afler residing for a short time in Atchison, Kansas, in 1864. started over the
plains fur Montana, arriving in Virginia
City the same year. In 1865 Mr. Iivine
was engaged iu placer mining near Race
Track, Montana, and made Deer Lodge
his home until 1887, when he removed
to Butte. Mr. Irvine bad charge of
some of tbe largest mining enterprises
around Pioneer, Pike's Peak and Yam
Hill in the early days. He was also instrumental in the establishment of tbe
Deer Lodge college, and is said to have
spent a fortune on tbat insiitulion. He
was unfortunate, however, in most of his
business ventures, and the last two summers he spent in prospecting in the Port
Steele country, British Columbia, where
he bad acquired some mining property
which gave promise of again placing
bim in comfortable circumstances. He
was stricken about two months ago witn
the lllueta tbat resulted in hia death.
Prom his early boyhood he was a member ofthe Christian church and was one

It is time lhat thc Dom'mum government took notice of the outrageous ar-,
t.uigenient that new prevails regarding j
tha collecting of cut'omaf ou ihe people
ol Cranbrook. Under existing eondi- )
lions goods coming from the States from
the east are, as a rule, held at Macleod !
by the customs officer there, notwithstanding an officer is located at Wiml-|
Her, a much nearer point. There are
several llistauces where goods have been |
held in this manlier, and letters, tele-
grama nnd pleadings hove hid uo effect
whatevert and the people have been
lurced to be deprived of their goods
without cause and without reason.
Again, there Is no lunger any need of
nu officer at Wardnei as the population
of lhe towu has been reduced to a mint-*
Ilium, while tbe population nud business
ill Craulirook is iueieasing. It hardly
Hecras possible that the government can
have a proper knowledge of these conditions, for Tint Hl'.KAi.n dues not believe
that it would impose such hardships
upon Ibe people of ibis oily. It is a case
for tbe customs department to give immediate attention, und Mr. Bosb-ck
might win laurels fur himself by Insist-
elating that this portion ol his constituency be favored with reasonable customs
arrangements. The remedy, and only
remedy, is to pluee au ollice in Cran-
biook at ouce.

loud bowling, deep growling and
screams of rage startled me. back
into the world. 1 fuuiull thu grizzly standing over me, while all
around, not more than 20 yards nwey,
were groat gaunt, hungry coyotes.
They had gathered in groat numbers.
and I saw in a moment what bad saved
my life thus far. 'Ihey were afraid to
venture upon the bear whilo he held hte
prey, and he could not begin ripping up
his captive while they stood around,

twice but a dozen times. The very fad ■
lhat I am here to-day, gentlemen, is
due ton gnug of coyotes that would have
torn me inlo a good' ninny frngiut'.-ils if
they could have bud their way.
"Hut  the brief respite euine to   an
end. Tho bear, tlredof being defrauded
of his meal, decided to drag it to some

upon the coyotes and then, rushing
hack, .setzeil my shoulder again nnd
started nd' in a trot. A few moments of
agony were followed by anolher fainting apelt, nnd once more, happily. 1 was '
unconscious. When 1 rccoveredl tho
same howling, raging pandemonium
was going on around me. Added numbers hud made the coyotes more courageous, nnd they were pressing close
upon lhe grizzly. Tie had not yet begun
to devour tne. Tie would stand'over me
and growl for n moment and then matte
onslaughts upon the enemy, scattering
them like chaff. As 1 turned to watch
him in one of these violent attacks I
was startled to find that I wns lying
jlisl before the door of   one   of   my
brother Pfed's bearpens tn tho lower
mountains. It wns a little house, built
nnd roofed with logs securely clamped
together. Tho door*was raised and
fastened to the lever that connected
with the trigger inside, I had helped
to build a dozen jnst like tlie tine near
at hand. At first my thought was of the
grim joke it would1 bo on .Ned's bear
trap to have his brother devoured by a
bear right in front of it. • Then something else occurred to me. The bear
enme back and Stood over me. His
mouth was open to shut down on my
neck nnd finish this n.turv fur inc. 1
could feel liis hot breath on my
face, when the coyotes made a rush, and
oue of them actually seized my foot.
The grizzly rushed nfter them furiously. Now was my opportunity. With superhuman exertion burn of a highly
dosperntc condition or affairs  r rose
upon my, uninjured knee, antl half
scrambled half rolled into the pen. lie-
fore I wns well hi I could hear the huge
brute coming on n run, 1 crawled tin-
other foot further—too lute—no, I
reached tho trigger with the tips of my
fingers, and down shot the ponderous
door, scraping tho grizzly's nose as it
fell.   1 wus shut up in Ihe bear pen.
"What n moment thnt was In my life.
If 1 were to live a thousand years 1
should never forget il, Uuw the brutes
did rage oulside, A hundred times they
walked around the pen, the bear oilieuit-
ing as chief mourner, and the coyotes
skulking after him antl howling dismally. As for me, I lay slretehed on
the ground inside and laughed nnd
cried,, and cried and laughed, for my
nerves were gone all to pieces, nnd I
bail u spell ofl what would have been
hysterica if I had been a woman. Sometimes I varied ibe.pcrformance by fainting comfortably away, with such n
blessed ficnse of security, and when I
waked again I cried und laughed some
more. I staid shore nnd kept bouse in
that bear pen I don't Know how many
hours, and all the time my broken leg
ached horribly.
"After awhile u fusillade of shots
roused me, and 1 saw the gvlzzly rise
upon liis haunches. Then some more
shots sounded and he fell, wilh faint
struggling motions of his arms. Tlie
coyotes rusht'il nt him first, but a few
