The Spoknne Spokesman Review of
last Tuesday contains i h** following
article, which corroborates to the extreme degree nil statements made by The
Herald relative to the smeller proposition:
A smelter will be built nt Marysville,
Il C, to handle the silver-lead ore from
the Sullivan group of mines, Work wi 1
begin at once. It is expected that the
plant will he ready to treat ore by April
I next.
The smelter will have a daily capacity
ol 150 tons when first started. Additional facilities will be installed when busl-
ss warrants the Improvement.
vliou! f 125,000 will be needed to build
the  plant.    This  will   be  furnished   by
leading stockholders of the Sullivan
company, who will take a mortgage on
the mine as security at 8 per cent inter-
A bonus of 500,000 shares of stock
will be given the men who put up the
A meeting of the company has been
called for November i, in Spokane, to
vote on the proposition of increasing the
capitalization of $3,500,000 to $3,000,000.
As the controlling interest in the company is belli by men who are pushing
the smelter scheme the meeting will
doubtless quickly transact the business.
A new manager for the company will
also he selected at the meeting. At
present there is no manager.
The sile for the proposed smeller was
selected by Senator George Turner, of
.Spokane, B, W. Layton, of Wapskonc-
lii,, Ohio, and George Hull, of Toledo,
Ohio. Senator Turner represents the
western interests, and Messrs, Layton
and Hull represent the eastern investors,
These gentlemen bavejust returned from
a week's visit at Ihe mines, Tbe site Is
on the St. Marys river, at the mouth of
Mark creek, between Cranbrook and
Kimberley. There is a magnificent
waterpower and the location is pio-
nounced an ideal one by the gentlemen
A line body of clay was found near the
proposed site and a contract was practically agreed upon with Hurley Brothers,
of Northport, to furnish the brick. The
tir 111 will move its brickmaklng plant to
Mutysville at once and start on the big
job of turning out a million and a
quarter ol brick Negotiations are also
under way to I ave a sawmill moved to
llit* site. There ia. plenty of limber ad-
1 icent and the lumber will be sawed in
time to season before building iu the
winter months.
Tbe company expects to mill ami smelt
Its ore at a QOSt ot not exceeding f[2 per
ion. There are 150,000 tons of ore on
the dump and in sight, according to the
itatement of H. \V. Layton,
•'The loan of $125,000 will be equally
divided between eastern mid western
interests," said Mr.   Lay ton,    "We will
experience no difficult? on that score, as
both intercuts stand willing to put up
ihe entire amount on such good security
as we consider the Sullivan group."
Senator Turner, Colonel I. N. Peyton,
Sd Sanders,Colonel W. M. RIdpath and
Major J, M Armstrong will provide the
Spokane end of the required sum.
Willi reference to the alleged proposed
deal by Kdwiu Dutatil, ol Kosshiud, in
connection with Colonel W M Rid path
Itir the sale ol tbe mine, Mr Layton said:
"Some time ago I was Informed Ibat
an English syndicate had made mi offer
lii buy out Ihe company at J5 cents per
share. This oiler came, as I understand
it, through some man iu the lliitish
America corporation. I do not even
know who he was. The offer was never
considered al a directors meeting and
practically no attention was paid to it."
Senator Turner declined to discuss the
alleged Mutant  deal.
Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting-
' garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one. hut we put material in our suits which some tailors
.   would not think of selling at less than double our price*

Mliilnif Notes.
Hob Johnson and Charlie Diamond
have located rour claims on Goal river,
near ihe Kitchener iron mines. They
have a four foot ledge that gives a fine
showing iu grey copper and galena. The
rock brought into town by Mr, Johnson
looks good to any mining man.
The b'g iron deal on Hull river was
closed up at Cranbrook. In fact, a great
many mining dculs are being closed iu
Cranbrook. Verily, this town is a mining center.
Made for a tilorlous Time od
That   Day.
Prank, the most recently organized
town in Alberta is to be formally opened
on the null aud to commemorate the
event a grand fete is to be given by the
Hon. H. I„ Frank and Mr. S. W.
tbe promoters of the coal mine at that
place, who have prepared an elaborate
priigiam for those who elect to become
their guests on that day,
The new town of Frank is situated
about two miles east ol Hlairmore. 011 a
broad level tlat, stretching from ihe base
ol Turtle mountain across the valley of
middle fork of the Old Man river to the
mountains to the north of the river. It
is one of the moat picturesque spots in
the Canadian Rockies and an ideal sue
for a town.
The celebration in honor uf the opening of the town is to be 011 a y trJd scale,
There is to be a lacrosse game between
tbe lacrosse teams ol I ,eth bridge and
I-'ernie and a foothill game between the
teams of I'incher Creek and Hlairmore,
and in addition there will be a list of
athletic sports, to include foot racing,
jumping, puttiug the shot aud other
Iu the matter of prizes for the contestants in the various games and sports the
management of the atl'iir has adopted a
pretty aud most excellent idea, Instead
of offering cash prizes medals will be
given at all the events; the idea being to
give the contestants something worth
preserving as a souvenir of the occasion.
Carrying out thut idea a solid gold
medal suitably inscribed will be present
ed to each member of ihe winning
lacrosso team and a silver uiedi 1 to each
member of the losing team, mid the
same plan will be followed with regard
to the football game. In the other
sporting events a solid gold medal will
be given the winner of tbe contest and a
silver medal to the contestant taking
second, There will alio be a boys race
in which of the contestants will be given
a silver medal. Tbe aggregate value of
of the medals to be thus bestowed will
be upwards of $500.
In addition to the amusements enumerated there will be dancing both afternoon and evening, and the day will be
made melodious by the presence of the
Macleod baud. The ball will be given
in a spacious hall in the new hotel just
completed. The floor of the dancing
hall is said to be the finest in the northwest.
That part ol the celebration which will
doubtless meet with the greatest popular
approval is the fact that everything on
that day will be entirely free to everyone. A French chef has been secured
to feed the visitors and it will be his
especial duty lo see that the appetite of
the multitude is amply satisfied, while
ice cream and lemonade stands will serve
light refreshments throughout the day.
There is to be absolutely no charge for
anything and all who avail themselves
of the hospitality of Messrs. Frank and
Gebo will be made welcome and will be
expected to indulge their appetites aud
inclinations as best pleases them.
The only expense that will attach to a
visit to Frank on that day will be the
railroad fare, aud in that connection it
may be staled that the C. P. R. is making special excursion rates which will
render the expense of the trip very
A feature of ihe entertainment provided Foi the day which will prove very
attractive, is mi opportunity that will lie
given all visitors to inspect the coal
mine, The mine cars will be lined with
canvass to prevent any soiling of the
cloths, and ml who desire, both ladies
and gentlemen, willl be given a ride
through the main tunnel, a thousand
leet underground to the face of the vein.
The cars will he kept running throughout the day in order that all may have
an opportunity to view the workings of
the mine.
In making the arrangements for tbe
event great cure has been taken wilb a
view to providing for the comfort and
enjoyment of all. no matter how great
may be the attendance, and there can be
no doubt that those who visit Frank on
the loth will spend a most enjoyable
A special train will be run from I.eth-
bridge by the Canadian Pacific, and
another from Cranbrook. Both trains
will stop at all intermediate points to
take passengers. A special excursion
rate will be made. The trains will make
the return trip both east and west after

The work 011 the Moyie waterworks is
now steadily progressing ami already
the pipe has been laid on Queen's avenue. Men are now at work oil Victoria
street and here the pipe has been laid
for quite a considerable distance. It
was thought by some that the water
supply would not meet the demand, but
the dam has plenty of water to supply a
town much larger than Moyie. Thus in
a short time Moyie will have as good a
water system as any town in the Koote-
The situation at the St. Eugene has
not changed and about the same number

Montreal, Aug. 30.—The general manager of the C. P, R, this morning confirmed the report that the strike of certain of its trackmen bad been called off,
n understanding having been reached
iih the committee of the trackmen
here. The understanding arrived at is
practically on the basis recommended
by the different conciliation committees,
who have been in the city for some time
past. The reinstatement of strikers not
guilty of violence, consistent with promises uiade the new hands, and the possible granting of a schedule to a certain
portion of Its permanent staff are features
of the settlement, but no further advances have been made in the wages
granted in June last, immediately prior
to the stiike.
The final settlement lias been recommended by the conciliation committees
as fair and reasonable, under all tbe
circumstances, it is understood thai
both parties are satisfied.

east, will meet in Cranbrook. There
will he about 16 ministers present. On
Wednesday evening a public meeting
will be held and an address delivered by
one uf the visiting hrethern.
Modern Job Work.
The only test of modern job work is
the work itself. That is the beauty of
all work turned out of The Herald office.
ll is modern, because it is executed by
modern printers, who use modem faces
of type and modern methods. Take a
job from The Herald office and compare
it wilh work turned out of some country
offices, and you will see the force of this
statement. Printers are not born, they
are made, aud it takes several years of
close work under good instructors to become a gootl printer. The Herald
printers ate men of long experience in
city offices. They know how to please
the people, and that is why The Herald
gets orders for job work from all parts of
the district.
The Clover Leal Mining Compan>.
This company has a group of three
claims silualed on the west slope of Palmer mountain, about seven miles southwest of Cranbrook, H. C, and about two
and a half miles from the Crows Nest
Pass branch of ihe C. P. R. The prop-
erty is easy of access and on the claims
there is an abundance of timber and
The formation is a quartette and slate,
with dyhorite running through. The

Wall ledge to a depth of 50 feet, Which
has widened so that Ihe entire six feel ol
shaft, is all ledge matter, with twe
sepaiate pay slieaks at the bottom of
the shaft, consisting of eight inches of
black sulphieds aud four inches of galena, carrying values from $31 to ?n6 in
gold silver aud lead. On account of surface water accumulating iu the shaft,
making the work impossible without
machinery, the plan of development was
changed and a tunnel of 175 feet is being
run. This will crosscut ihe entire mineral belt on the property aud tap ihe
shaft lead at a depth fo 110 feet, The
tunnel is now In «5 feet, and there are
very strong indications that an ore body
is near at hand.
The company is using every available
means lo push development work, with
the idea of lapping the ore body, which
promises to be one of the largest iu East
Kooienay, judging from surface indications and the irou-slale capping running
through the property. Conditions aie
favorable at this time for mr.king Ihe
property a valuable one, and giving tbe
camp a bright future. Mining men of

sake, people, stop being such "knockers,"
if you haven't faith in your own town
how can yoil ex, ed it to get better } Do

Never in a thousand yeais. I have been
in your stores here nml liml that yon hnve
good stocks and your prices are reasonable. Vet I don't see yon getting any
outside irade, and even a good many of
your citizens send to Timothy Ralotl or
some other outside store for their cloth-
imj, their dress goods and even groceries,
and some of your business men send out
of town for their printing, and yet you
wonder what is the mailer wilb Kaslo.
About four fifths ol you want some com

Change your wiiys, have some backbone
nml stand by your town. Have some
faith in Its stability, improve your property, patronize home industry, stop
belly-aching about haul times, stop your
petty ijiiarelliug, don't be jealous of
your neighbor, help, him along, expatiate on tbe advantages of your town.
Above all pull together and believe
Kaslo first, last and all the time. Prosperity will never come it you sit down
and growl and wait for it- Be up and
doing; make your town what il ought

In Fabled Story
A wild boar was whetting his tusks against the trunk of a
tree. A fox passing bv asked why he did this, seeing that
neither hunter or hound was near. "True," said the boar, "but
when that danger docs come, I shall have something else to do
than to sharpen my weapons."
Putting on fire insurance is sharpening your weapons. When fire comes you can't do it.
