The West Side of the River Leads
in the Number of Claims
The report or J. ti. Armstrong to the
minister of mini's shows that during tlle
year closing December 31, 1900, there
were only 154 new mineral locations on
the east lide of the Kootenay river, as
compared wilh 313 on the west .side.
This in what The Herald has maintained
•ml hns been argued ns one of the many
reasons for the government to make
changes regarding the location of the

As was predicted the output of galena
nt the St. Kugene mine for lhe month of
June was enormous nnd amounted lo
3,800 tons. The mine was running
steadily throughout Iht* month, with lhc
exception of a few days wheu it was
necessary to close down for some shaft
repairs to lhe machinery, Kor the lusl
few days it hns been rumored thnt a shut
down wns to take place, but although a
few men hnve been laid off thc mine is
still steadily running and is likely to
continue. Another rumor has heen
afloat that the St. Kugene had been pur
chased by the American Smelter company, hut this has been denied by the
manager, Mr, Cronin. Thus, although
there are various rumors afloat, the mine
is steadily running and is likely to continue throughout the season.

Fred Roo sends the editor of The
Herald a most cordial invitation to visit
him in his new home at Roosville, on
the Boundary line. Tbe invitation is
written on a wild goose hide, nicely
tanned, and sets forth some of the advantages of llie place. He promises to
have hem*, deer, moose, ducks, geese
and grouse run down the canyon for us
to shoot at while we sit ou the front
porch of his lintel. The scenery, be
says, rivals tliat of Yellowstone Park,
Glacier Canyon or It mil, tbe climate is
superb, while the social advantages are
ofa nature that will make a man regret
that he does not reside permanently iu
that charming community. He gives as
a guarantee of all he says Messrs. Gurd,
Peltier nnd Bell, who have visited that
ueck of the woods lately. The Herald
mau feels inclined to accept the invitation nl the earliest opportunity.
There is a good story that hails from
Fori Steele. It seems that when the
question of renewing tbe licenses for tbe
hotel for the ensuing year came up in
that lown, three of lhc proprietors
thought it would he well to bave their
license reduced as the town bad decreased iu population The present license is
$200, but if the town did uot have 200
male and female adults, it would be reduced to ^125. These three meu wanted to keep that $75 each, if there were
legal grounds for so doing. With this
idea iu view, Messrs. Stewart, Mathers
aud McN'i'i-h took a census of the town
aud found by stretching the limit to the
utiii'.st tbat there were just 183 adults,
and therefore nude application for the
legal reduction. "But," said one of the
hotel men to The Herald man, "they
told us thut would never do, because if
tbe fact was mnde public lhat Fort
Stc.de had only 1S3 adults the towu
might lose the government offices. We
made the application, nevertheless, but
our friend Grace said Ihe bonrd would
uot consider It. He took tbe voters'
list that included men who have not
lived iu Fort Steele for a year or more,
and by counting iu men from Kimberley, Perry creek, Moyie, Cranbrook,
Klko, Sand Creek, Fernie and other
points, scraped up 232, and shut out our
petitions, and each of us is now $75 out. '
The School Tern Finished Last Friday With
aa Appropriate Program.
The public schools of Cranbrook closed
last Friday with appropriate exercises.
A large number of visitors were present
and at 11 o'clock tbe pupils from the
various departments gathered in Principal Mclntyre's room. Rev. Bowerlng
was selected as chairman. A program
consisting of songs and recitations by
the little ones and short talks by some
of the citizens present was presented.
At ths close the various certificates of
merit were awarded and the schools
closed for the summer vacation.
A Valuable Find.
Victoria Post: The shores of Vancouver Island occasionally yield n; other
treasures than gold, copper, coal and
iron. A gentleman, whose name we are
nol al present permitted to divulge, recently obtained from a West Coast
Indian a lump of queer looking stuff,
wblcb the aborigine had found drifted

inland. Tlie while man, having a suspicion as to what bis unwholesome prize
consisted of, took It tbis week lo Mr. W.

Hayer on Broad St. On testing the stuff,

The celebration of Dominion day In
Cranbrook under the auspices of tbe
Craubrook Koot Ball club waa all the
auccens that could'be expected uuder Ibe
circumstances. Tbe day waa fine and
the program prtsented was interesting
aud at limes exceedingly exciting.
There was a large si-ted crowd present
throughout the day, and from a sporting
aud financial standpoint the ce.ebrstion
was a success.
The only damper on  lhe day was ibe
failure of the Fernie and North Star foot
ball teams to put in an appearance.   It
bad been understood  lhat  both teams
would be here, but foi some reason tbey
failed to show up.     As a result tbe contest for the Beattie cup could not take
place, as only one game was played, aud
tbat waa between the first and second
elevens, which resulted iu a victory for
the firsts.   What   will  be done  aa  to
further contests is yet to be determine!).
Tbe day opeued with  a football game
between   lhe  youngters  of  tbe  town.

those present were well satisfied with
tbe events.
Artlillc Work.
To paste paper on the wa'l is not a difficult matter, but to do it in an artistic
manner Is entirety a different proposition. During the past week Pieper &
Currie, the well known pap, r hangers,
have been papering aeveral rooms in R.
K. Beattie's residence, and have done
work lhat will compare favorably wilb
any that can be found In any cily in tbe
land. The combinations of colors are
perfect blends, and the workmanship Is
ofa nature that will bring forth enconl-
urns of praise from tbe most critical Individual. The sidewalls and ceilings are
papered in a manner tbat gives one tbe
impression that tbey are covered wilh
oue solid piece of paper, while the
borders are placed on In a way lhat produces a most pleasing effect. Tbe
beauty is greatly enhanced by the
artistic arrangement of moulding that
sets off the work to the very best advantage.
Pieper & Currie make a specialty of
this kind of woik, and a man wbo hao
his houae papered once by them will
never regret it, because lhe work will remain a thing of beauty and a joy forever.
