-icve that every mile of that country from
the time you leavo (ho coal belt that I have
mentioned, until you f_;et down to Hope,
will ha pouring in i'a wealth at itationi
located every four or five mil's.
I have uo hesitation in saying, from tltt
developments that have taken place in
British Columbia from ooe end to the other,
extending over an area of 400,001) square
miltP, that there is scarcely 10 iquare
miles iu that Province hut contains gold-
beating and bilver-bcarii-g mur z, copper,
lead, icon and other metals iu immeutie
bodies. The output of our mines, during
the last year, was not up to the expecta
t.ions of �� great number of ui, hut it c.*n )v
very easily explained. In lliitibh Columbi i
is iu all other gold-bearing countries where
< hey first discover gold in the una and in
; ho gravel beds of extinct river channels,
guld could bo got out very easily and re-
turns wire obtuined almost in a fiw diye
or a few montls work. Like California,
Nevada, Australia and South Africa we
have been iu a tratisittou state from the
primitive way of mining gold in the gravel
benches and iu tho old stn urns theie. \Y��
have ut lant turned our attention to quartz
niiiing, vchtc!) is of a permnneut. clinrjcter

levelop those quartz miuej. tjiartz ledgc--

100 feet in some instances, before a infQcien'
bud of paying on is re-tubed, aud as a geu-
t-nd thiog the further down they are driven
the richer tho lodes become. A great dual
of the ore is refractory. The precious metal
ts found in combination with iron, I al and
copper. It Is not free milling ore. Smelters
have to be creeled at a vory great cost, and
[ am happy to say that, while most of out
ores are not free milling, they carry euch u
large percentage of copper aud lead that it
pays for the mining and smelting aud other
expenses connected with it and the miner*
have the gold free for their pruflt. That
U why I say that as Urge a rtturu hat-
not been made as many of us expected
Juiingla*t year from Ihe amount of development and tho amount if attention that
has been called to that poittou of the
Dominion. I hold in my hand here the
report hrmiffht down by tho .Mini-iter of
Mines in the province of TjritUh Columbia, ' Vf gives one an idea of the ecnr>
inuus strides that are being made in the
mining of precious metal* in that proviuce.
The returni are Ur the year 18115 and
1811(1. la point jTltf&r mining, i>i 1805
there was $4S1,033, worth of gold pro-
duced; last year the production hod
increased to $o-!3,02G In quarz mining, in lM!l."i wo producod ?7M,'J71
worth, and last year tho output had increased to$I.!M4 ISO. In silver the output
in l.Sll.-i waa-8117Vs'-i-JK, la��t year It was ?.��,-
100 000. In copper in 1SU.1 the output was
flT.ol-'. last year the output was
$190,101. . Our total output for lasl
y-ar was withiu a few dollars of ?fi,000
000 in gold, silver, coppor and lead, and
that ii merely tho hegiontr-gof in enormou-.
output in the ii'iar future. I would draw
the attention of the House to a peculiar
tact; you rarely hear anything about our
rich silver minen. It is all about o<ir gold
mines, Up to the piesent time, during the
last two years, from ��1 to %'\ worth of tAvisc
bus been producod in that provinc. for
every dollar that hat been produced in gold
People are bewitched bv go'd. Demonstrate to investors that you can make $100
per day for 20 yeari in a silver mine, and
take a gold mine and demonstrate with
equal certainty that you cm mafeo $50 per
day, and you will find that 19 out of 20
will take the gold proposition in preference
to the silver one. What I wish to call
attention to with referouco to silver mining
li that the lead mined in connection with it
last year amounted to ��743,000. Our silver
bearing ore is argentiferous galena. Nearly
one-third of (ho total value of our lilvet
oroi is in the lead they carry. In the past
nearly all the silver ore has been hhippea to
the United States. The duty on
the lead was T of a oent per pound and I am
sorrv to boo the proposed amendment to the
tariff iu tho United Statu will raise it to
l.J cents per pound. Notwithstanding
that, I believe our silvi r mines are so rich
that they can afford to pay that ex*
Inordinary duty. I am satisfied alio that
the raising of the'duty on our lead will
result in inducing British capitalists to go
in there and establish smelters to do all the
smelting in our own country. A few years
ego when advocating the eatabM��hment of a
Dominion miut here, I remember making a
statement, and I think hon. gentlemen will
find it recorded in the official report 11 then
predicted that within five or six yean, in
all probability, the province that I have tho
honor to teureient wculd ho producing pro-
hilily four or five trillion dollars in gold and
silver. I rometi l'tr dial Inotly that my hon.

Some Fro3poctor's Luck.
Tho prospector who fails to strike it rich
this summer can take a crumh of oomfort
in the old superstition that the finders of
honanz* mines always come to violent eo^f.
tn the minds of many old-time hunters this
idea is accepted as an undeniable f.iot, and
they will be intensted In the number of instances confirming the idea whioh somebody
has dug np, According to this search**
after truth, tho finders of no less than forty
of the richest mines in the world have died
by violent m-��ins. Of these two were shot,
three we' c- engulfed iu their mines, and the
others disappeared never to be hoard of
again. Dutch William, who discovered the
Cariboo gold field, died a pauper, Marshall,
who found the C>1if>rnia placer gold, depended upon public charity for some tiiw
before his death. Montana Plummer, who
found one of the richest mines in the world,

tiurelu '���' and " Nine-mile Olarks " were all
hilled in dr.inken rows. Johnny Horner of
the Horner mine went Hit broke and shot
himself. The owner if the Homea'akc
mini turned highwayman. Bill F��ir-
weather of tho Aider Huloh mines killed
himself through his dissipation aud execs-
ei. The Indians killed Colonel .Storey. An
avals ���cbo finished the discoverer of toe

throughout tho list. Yet most of us would
take our chances on dying similar death1*,

Through Solid Rock to Pay Oro.
We can conceive of no more honorable
way of securing money than to get it from a
natural sourco Our mountains are full of
mineral wealth, gold, sliver, copper, coal,
iron and lead. The values heretofore mined
are hut a drop compared with the va-t
amount still remaining. Capital is required
to open theee mines ; once open and productive, year after year tboy will enrich
their owners, and us a profitable investment
thoy are incomparable with any other to be
found. Select something which has a reasonable showing, something worth the expense of development, and instead of scat*
tering your means in three, four or a dozen
placci��� unless tbey are ample to develop all
���confine them to the development of one
I property. The mnro spent In proper development the gtotter tho vuluo of the
Investors should bear in mind that however flattering tho proenoot, it is generally
a long road from tho discovery of a vein,
and the bottom of a 10-foot shaft, down
through tho solid rook to pay ore, and this
road has to bo out with steel, inch hy inch
requiring months and even years of uuceac-
ing toil.
hen, other things belnst equal, those
properties showing tho greatest amount of
development should command tho attention
of the investor in preference to those having
less development, as they an thu most likely tn briug earlier returns. Again we say,
mining investments judiciously mado are
the moat profitable of any lo be found, and
we are glad to note from the Increasing demand for such Investments that they are
rapidly gaining tho attention and confidence
of capitalists who are noted for their careful
oon'lderai ion of every proposition in which
they risk their money.
1st. See that the Titlo offered to yon is
clean, clear and legal.
Snd. Study what the lease (If any) calls
for; it's provisions, it's future payments,
it's demands.
.3rd. Note carefully the work done; the
depth, the width of vein, the amount of
ore in sight, the grading of the quartz, the
kind of machinery necessary for the  work.
4th, Develop nntil yon have enough
paying oro iu sight to justify the putting in
of machinery. More money has been
wasted by the premature ptaolngof valuable
machinery on poor claims than profits have
beon made on good developed properties in
tho first year of mining,
5th. There are plenty of rioh claims In
the market. Goon imestments in sound

There are other companies whose success Is
most problematical.

From Our Own Correspondent.
Indignation Meeting at Fort Steele.
Committee of Investigation
The Important mining district of Eat1
Kootenay, whoso aiei It about two-thirds
the site of the Kingdom of Oreeoe, it now to
be tub-divided soda OoldCommissioner and
Assessor and Collector appointed for each
divition. The northern dittriot will contain the Donald and Golden miniog divi-
lions and the southern distriofwill contain
the mining divisions of Windermere aw)
Fort Steele. . The present Oold Copume-
aioner, Mr. J.'F. Armstrong, who had his
heed office at Donald but resided at Golden
will be moved to tho toothern dittriot, and
hit head office and residence will be at th��
City of Cranbrook. The new Commissioner
for the northern division will be Mr. Orif
fith of Donald, tut it has not yet been decided whether kit residenos will be st
Donald w Golden. Mr. Frink Lang will
remain Assessor and Collector for the northern district and 0. M. Edwards the present.
mining recorder at Fort Steele will be the
new assessor and coUeotor for the southern
divition snd will alio reside at Cranbrook,
where the offices of the Administrator Ann
Coiumiailoner of ths Southern District will
be, Chit will create a vacancy in tho office
of Mining Recorder at Fort Steels. Ths
southern distriot of Esse Kootenay hat be-
earns so important that in all probability
there will bo a mining recorder's office established st Moyie City, which with the
mining recorders offices st Tobacco Plains
snd Windermere will give four rscording
divisions for ths southern distriot.
Tho most central point in southern Easl
Kootenay for these offices Is undoubtedly
Cranbrook. It la ths ohisf divlsionsl sta-
tlon on the asw railway and a considerab.e
townaite bss been laid out, snd it will in
ths near future be * place of some importance. It is the osntsr of ths radii for such
towns ss Bitten, Moyie City, Perry. Johsn-
twaburg, Kimberly, Dalgarduo, Wett Port
snd Wardner. Many of thess towns have
now a larger population than what Fort
Stasis had sis: mouths ago, snd soms of
them will shortly be vary formidable rivals
to this mining town.
Ins telec'toa of Cranbrook for the seat of
the Gsvsraauat sfBoes has however not
frivsn general satisfaction to tho people of
Fort Steele sod "The Prospector,1' the
organ ol this town has denounced in em-
phstk language ths selection of Crsnbreok.
A meeting of the "select few" snd others
has been held snd a committee sppointsd to
Investigate the nutter, to ssosrtsln from
ths Provincisl Secretary il ths statement it
true snd to invite the Commissioner of
Works to visit East Kootrasy. Ws mutt
confess we cannot see the object of this
committee or why ther- should be any kick
against the selection, unless it be that Fort
Steele arrogates to itself ths similar position
that ths three tailors lu Tooley Street, London, ones arrogated to themselves as representing the inhabitants of Great Britain,
and Fort Steele fancies itself the southern
division of E at Kootenay instead of only
lot SI in an erst of 600,000 squire miles.
Fort Steele is losing nothing by ths change,
but it, along with ths other
ten towns in Southern Estt Kootenay it
gaining something considerable. The seat
of ths Government offices instead of being
170 miles away will be within 12 miles of
Fort Steele snd not much over this dis'anoe
from ths other towns which turround Cranbrook. The visit of the Minister flf Works
will bo a welcome one to E ut Kootenay
and ths people at ths northern end will
have aa opportunity should he come to Kut
Kootenay of pitting In a word to have
Golden made the center of ths judicial
system sf Eist Kooteoay, as it it by far the
most Important town a it.
Fort Steel* Liberal Association.
Ths psraaneot organization of this Association was completed at a meeiir g held oo
the 21th Jans, by tho election of the follow-
lag officers i���Prteldent, F. P, Norbury, J.
P.; Vice President, T. MoNaught j See-
Treasurer, Hagh Watt, M.D ; Advisory
Committee���Messrs. Cummlng, Oraulck,
Durlek, Dempsey and Judson Langlry.
Among other business transacted ths following resolutions were carried unanimously:
" That this Association unrest its etrong
disapproval of ths manner in which the new
mail contraot waa 1st; sftor celling for
tenders for s weekly service, accepting none
of such tenders, but letting ths oontrsct
privately to a different individual under a
different contract."
" That there being now over 3,000 people
receiving mail at ths Fort Steele office, this
Association strongly condemns ths proposal
te give Fort Steele only a fortnightly service for the winter beginning from October;
that in its opinion the service should be
twice a week nntil railway conttruotion it
" That u fifty per osnt of the correspondence going from Fort Steele ie with the
south, thst being the quicker and more
natural roots for tuch correspondence, it
ie the- opinion of this Association that a
subsidy should be piidfor a weekly mail
service to Toososo Plains, Montana, to connect with the semi-weekly pott from thi re
to Ktlltpell; that by to doing there will be
prevented a considerable loss of revenue
now canard by the irregular conveyance of
such oorrcspoudeuce southward.
The Engineers Bu3y wlth-the Rail*
way Survey.
We had a talk last week in Fort Steele
with Donald MoCombes formerly of the
Canadian Northwest Mounted Police, who
has now mads hit future home in British
Columbia, and taken up hie abode in Fori
Steele and who had just arrived from Alberta by the way of the Crow't Nest Pass.
He left Let hbrldge with a companion aimed
Frank Ship, on Friday the 2,'rth day ol
���June Isst and srrived in Fort Steele on
Saturday the 3rd dsy of July being thu
nine days oa the travel. During the whole
of thoir journey they hsd not s single dry
dsy snd the only protection tboy had from
the down-pour of rain was a wagon cover
whloh they utilised st a shelter snd nndei
which they slept at night. Tney came

their travel did not see sny game, but lived
on ths provinder thst they brought with
them, obtaining occasional supplies by the
From Lsthbridgs to F"rt McLsod s
distance of about 32 miles there is a good
wagon-road, wbioh is continued from there
right on to the Crow't Nest Lakes, tome
dittance up the Pass, After leaving Mo*
Leod tbere is a good aioppiug-place st
Pincher Creek about 30 miles away. The
next stopping-place Is 30 miles onward at
the Crow's Nest Hotel close to the eastern
month of the Pass, It is, however, nothing
more than a good stopping-place, ss it doss
not possets sny license���being within the
district of Alberta. Some few miles np the
P��ss are sulphur springs possessed of medicinal properties supposed to be good for the
cure of oertain ailments. The hotel is the
most convenient stopping-place nssr there
���nd wat erected chiefly for that purpose.
The party left this hotol on Monday morning ths 2Sth of June snd oo Jnno the 20th
its members were in British Columbia. The
Pass is about 70 miles in length from foot
hill to foothill; its breadth runs from 150
yards to one mile and a half; the scenery
in it wss considered very striking. Fort
Steele is reckoned sbout 12) miles from the
Crow's Nest Pass Hotel. After emeigiog
from ths Pass, the Elk river whloh tuts
doss to its western end was followed down*
wsrds until ths Kootenay was ttruok when
thit river wss followed upwards te Fort
Steele. On their journey tboy saw ths appearance of coal io several placet, their
horses' feet pasting over seams that were
jutting out from the ground. From the
month of the Pats there is sn excellent trail
all the way to Fort Steele. It wss while
thit trail was being constructed thst the
immense measures of coal���supposed to be
the largest in ths world���were discovered.
Coming down ths Elk river, which is s
rapid flowing stream, aud whioh gradually
becomes a magnificent stream of swift rushing waters, widening out in some places
nntil it is nearly 150 ysrds broad, they taw
three or four places admirably adapted for
mining townt. One place that particularly
impressed them was nssr Pack Bridge st
the Elk River Creasing. Here it magnificent water power and a plana most suitable
for a smelter. Ihe wator flows with great
velocity through a canyon over which the
bridge it laid, the width being about 40
feet. Then is abundance of timber for
lumber���while the coal fields are close by.
The mineral properties now located in the
oerghborhood are considerable,
la the course of their nine dsys treval
they taw no trace of suy sotoal conttruotion
work being dene on the rsilwsy, but thsy
corns across three parties of surveyors busy
making turveyt for the new line. There
were from tea to fifteen persons in esoh
porty. The first party waa busy near tbi
Crow's Neet Like. The second party was
encountered after they had entered British
Columbia about 15 miles westward from the
divide or boundary of tbst Province sou
Alberts. Ths third psrty was on the Elk
river. Three psok trams consisting ol
abount fifteen animals eich were engaged
in carrying supplies to the surveyors, Thi-
head packer of the outfit was an ex-othcer
of the British Army. MuCornbei tried to
eitract iuformetiou from the surveyors
when sotnsl work was to corameuco but
could not sliot any newt.
Mining Activity.
There hss been great activity in this mining division during the hurt tin months, at it
hat been the principal division in Kut
Kootenay that has attracts) moat attention
as it waa first mads known during those
recent years to the outside world who are
interested In mines sad mining operations.
The other divisions sn now becoming centers of sttractlon and prospectors and mio
ing men are rapidly going to ths other
divisions in Eist Kootenay where valuable
Aids are now being made. To enable our
outside readers to form somo idea of the
greet activity the/, baa been going on iti
Fort Steele division during the ieittls
monthi ending 30th June, 180", we give tin
following figures whioh wo have obtained
through ths courtesy of Mr. Elward*.

One of the Future Towns of East
TVs town is situated on Lower Moyie
Like shout two miles from its southern
end.    It lies cl> s-r to the buse of tho moun-
in on which are located the oelohrated St
Eugene, M yip, Queen nf the Hills, and
l.v.u of Strom mineral properties. The
Movie Likes which are formed by the
will -n ing of llio Moyie River are two of the
driest shee s of water in Southern East
Kootenay. They are from JO to 12 miles
long. Their u-i'lth does uot exceed a mile
and a half. Tney are au ideal body of
-eater for boating, fishing and bathing.
They have rloo r-horrs and -rood beaches.
Fish is plentiful, of excellent quslity and in
��;re,-t variety.
This tnwii which has only come into existence in llio course of this year already
por-sessis two general stores, three hotels,
pack ttslile, assay office and blacksmith's
lorco. Its present poptt'ation 't about 100,
while lli.ie will be shout double that number of a II rating population out on the hills
prospecting and developing the mineral
olafms, Tne town is on tho main trail from
Bonuor's Ferry to Fort Steele, and it distant from the former place sbout 70 miles
ami from the latter pluas about 30
miles. It it also sbout 30 miles from Coat
River. Wardner on the Kootenay River is
about 14 miles away and a good wagon
road it now being conttruoted between the
two townt ami through Wardner all lit
supplies will come until ths Crow's Nest
Pass Railwsy is constructed. The survey
of this line passes direotly through or
rather a little above tho plotted portion of
the town. Cranbrook which is to be main
divieional center on this line and a tnwn of
considerable importance lies about 20 miles
to the north, From there the wagon load
fiom Fort Stoele lesdt down the Movie
River to ths bsad of ths Upper Like,
Boats now ply on the lakes and transit asn
be obtained to and from the town by-
means of these. Io a short time a s'cam
launch whioh is now being built will be on
ths lake, because Moyie City is not to be
the only town on these lakes. It hat already a rival at the head of tho Upper Lake
io Sifton City.
Moyie City will he one of the Important
points in East Kootenay and its site has
beeen well selected. Good timber is plerr
tiful and there will be abundance of cheap
lumber as the whirl uf the taw mill will
toon be heard on the thoret of the Lakes
There it a good day bank within two miles
of tho towo te supply brioks and s Urns
ledge has been discovered a little distance
further amy so there will be so lack oi
building material.
The turvoyed portion of the town whioh
extends over 40 acres it laid out in twelve
blocka. Nine of these contain 20 lots each
which are 30 feet by 120 feet. Its st reels
are 6S feet wide while its lanes or allies, are
It) foet brood. Its four principal streets
are Queen's Avenue, Viott-ria Street, Tavistock S reetsnd Medovs Avenue.
Tne streots hsve been cleared and graded
Tbere is a beautiful mountain close by snd
a reservoir it about to be cons'ruoted into
which p-irt of i-s waters will be diverted,
and an ellicieut snpply obtained for the use
of the inhabitants of tho town. The fall ol
this stream is sufficient to supply power f- r
an electric light and telephonic plant foi
the town.
Ihe best devnloped mine in E ut Koote*
usy���ths S'-. Engeno mine is doss by���on
whioh constant work it being done, as well
on n'her mines in the neighborhood. The
St. Eugene alono has now over 6000 tons of
ore ready for shipment. Considering the
dai'y output that is now going on among
those mines it is no exaggeration to ssy
that by the time the railway reaches Moyie
City iu the beginning it the year there will
be from 16,000 to 20,000 tout of ore ready
for shipment. Good miueral derm, of the
same character of ore as ths St. Eugene
also exist on the opposite tide of the lake.
Chisf among thess it ths Cariboo Marsh
miueral claim, belonging te the Alberta and
Kootenay Development Company, upon
which development work it beiog done and
in all probability this mine will soon become
s shipper.
Moyio City msy never be a phenomenal
town of s mushroom growth but it has the
nucleus of a good lively, hustling place ol
four to five thousand inhabitants, and
whars then will be always a good snd
healthy business conducted. Nothing has
bees dons to work np sn excitement by
11 faked" advertisements or boomttert
dodges. There is no need for it. Its mining and natural location, surrounded by
pastoral wealth, is tuch that it is quickly
attracting intending settlers aod butiness
men and iuducing them to make it their
future homo,

its hardihood would never have attempted

The Americans hero which number about
one half of the population were most euer*
getiu in c-Mrrating the 4th of Ju'y on the
5th. The 4th of July fell this year on a
Sunday, but their enUiuaUim and patriotism were not deterred by that fret for the
stillness of tho early Sabbath morning was
broken by loud reports from exploded
dynamite, as if numerous field pieces were
going off. Tile darknoss of the midnight
had scarcely passed away ere there wus
illumination by fire works. The great celebration was on the following day when
sports and games were held. Sims good
purset were given for horse races which
were held in the main avenue of the towu
and many of the ovents wsre well contested.
There were also foot races, jumping, and
wrestliny on horsi luck. Toe committee
who had charge of the arrangements deserve great credit for the manner io which
the entire programme wss curried out.
There waa a further display of fireworks in
the evening snd the proceedings were dosed
by a dance in the Steele House. Many of
the buildings belonging to American citi*
/.cut were tastefully d>unrated withiltgs
and bunting. The " Proepeotor " office
wat most artistically draped and the proprietor deserves praise for ths effective
manner iu which the flags and bunting
