With the approach of spring, says The
International, comes the unquestioned
evidences of a prosperous year for South
Kant Kootenay ami Wardner. It does
not take a mind with extraordinary
power of discernment to see that the
future for this district and this town is
to he om of Kreat promise and pros-
perty. Neit'B from over the district and
Intelligence from tlie money centres of
Eastern Canada and the States verify
the predictions made hy those acquainted with the. conditions, and show beyond
any question of a doubt that the tide is
turning to South East Kootenay. Capital will he invested in triines, capital
will be invested in improvements, capital will he invested in business, capital
will bo invested in land., capital will he
invested in town property; in fact,
inmeuee mat' of money v;il! ba brought
Into activa sorvicc in this district dnrinj
tho coming season. These mea who lire
ready lo invest in various enterprises in
South East Kootenay ar�� not making
their investments blindly. Last year
was devoted to au examination of the
field. The building of tha Crow's Neat
l'nsa road attracted their attention since
they knew that millions would not be
invested by any corporation to open up
a country that was not rich in resources*.
Yet, representatives visited this territory last year end examined the count ry
pb a field for profitable investment. The
result of thess iuvestifrtions are already
showing. The reporti must have been
eminently sr.tlsfory, s'nee thousands and
hundreds of thousands will bo invested
in South East Kootenay within the next
few morithc.
And why not? continues The International. Kov.here eke is there a
country that gives rttch positive assurance of rich returns for labor and capital
invested as South E.".st Kootenay. Hundred! of thousands of dollars are 1-eius
eipcnded in tho construction of a f;reat
trunk line of railway. Fortunes will be
invested in mines that have fortunes
already in sight, waiting for facilities
to tianspor it to market. Thousands
will go lo developing prospects that
need only labor to make them paying
���nines. There is a rich territory that ii
yet to bi prospected .There will he grow
towns, coustrucvtlon of bull.ling:
developing of mines, breaking up of
Igricultural lands, cutting of nii!li..n>: ol
feet uf lumber, in all a great industrial
���vnve that will bring prosperity to every
resident of this section who shows that
he merits prosperity.
Not long ago a visitor to this section
said: "1 could not name a place in
Canada or tlie Ststtra where such glor
ious opportunities will be presonled for
success as will he found iu South East
Kootenay the next few years." Thut
man was right. He stated the trutl
And those who cams here will tally
appreciate th* wisdom ofth* re marks,
There will ha several good towns 1
twean Crows Nest lake and Kootonay
laka, along th* line of the Crows K��
road. There will be one town that is
sure to be a hummer. That is Wnrdner,
It is in the centre of this great district
and is located ot the crossing of the
Kootenay river and Crow's Nest road.
It ia the only town ill the whole distri.'l
that will enjoy thabonefltsol a trunk
line of railway and four (ti-.imboats. It
is locsted near to tha great coal Iields.

town to-day, and it i�� improving every
twenty-tour hours. It has reached that
stage where stltcctt in already aisured,
and its growth in the liiturc will b�� both
permanent and rapid. Many oppor-
(unities exist hare for making money,
and many more will he presented within
the next few laontlis, No town in eithor

is shown by the actios ef the eastern
syndicate thai has purchased the town-
site company's iutcrest ia the unsold
lots. The membereof the company have
inverted their thousands to make thousands. They propose to it, end will jneh
the advantage thoy enjoy to a successful climax.

U. S. Mlnaral'Production for 1SS7.
Tlio mineral production of 18117 ngiiln
establislies :t record, but from proscnt
indications it will lie exceeded during
tlie year which i.*. just opening.
The production of gold in 1897 vu*
2,685,000 line ounces,valued at So.5,-198,
950, against 2,553,433 line ounce, valued
at 152,330.200, 111 18!��0. The production
in the TJaneviial was about tho same as
in tbe U. S., and it will be doubtful
which country will bold first placo until revised fij-iues are obtained. Tiiere
wan a large Increase in the gold production of Colorado,whluli has now surpassed California for tlio first timo, but tlie
increase of production in that state was
offset by decreases ill others. Tho gold
production of the [Clondlke, which was
only $2,000,000, notwithstanding the
exaggerated newspaper reports has been
credited to Canada, and tho latter bIiowb
consequently a groat increase in output.
The moet important gold producing district iu tho I.', f. was Cripple Creek,
whicli broke ils best previous record,
Other important districts oi tho year
were lhe l.lnc'-i Hills, b'outh Dakota;
Me-rcur, Utah, and tbe various camps of
the Mother lodo in California.
The production of sliver of domestic
origin ill tbe U. S. in 1X97 was Ml, 117,000
fllieouuces, against 53,483,810 line ounces | tft^"fc^W^J^tSSS|"J!
in 1800. Iti addition to this there wan a
production of 89,325,000 line ounces irom
foreign ores and bullion, against 1)3,122,
520 tine ounces lu 1M6\ The decrease in
tlie American production is accounted
[or by Ue heavy decline in the value of
silver, which compelled a number of important producers to closo down. The
falling oft in production would undoubtedly have been greater had it not been
for the high price of lead during n considerable part of the year. A \vry large
proportion���probably SO per cent.���of
the silver production of tho U.S.is deriv-
ed from tho ores in which gold, lead or
copper in the more important element
of value. Inboih ib-itish Columbia and
Mexico thoro was an 1 ncrouse iu the
prodtictoon ot silver; In the former it
corresponded more or loss to the increase in the production of lead and copper: in the latter, where business in con
ducted on a silver basis, the coat of labor falls proportionately with tlie value
of silver,ami silver mining is not affected to the same extent as in countries
which are on a solid gold basis. There
was a considerable increase in the load
production in Mexico in 1897,and an in-
erease in the silver production was consequently to be expected.
The production of lead in 1807 was
19-��,.530 short tons, valued at $13,031,348,
against 174,702 short tons, valued at $10-
881,843,iu 1806, Besides there was a
large amount of lend produced in the
United States frem foreign ore and bullion, a lar^e part of weich was exported
after desllverieation. The increase,
which was proportionately large iu Missouri, accounted for by tho high price
of the metal during most of the year;
Tlie chief sources of domestic lead supply continue to be tho Coeur d'Alono
district of Idaho, hendv'dle, Colo., and
the vicinity of Bonne Terre Mo. The
exportation of foreign lead refined in
bond during the. first ten months of the
year was 41,010 short tons. The exportation of domestic lead miring the same
period was 5,637 tons

cannot keep the sea ami light fur from
the naval bases, like old wooden sailing
ships. The very life of a moilcrn ship
depends upon ports of coaling and
refitting ucar at hand. Russia has one
such port at VladlvoBtock, but Germany
has none in Asia, tlreat Britain lias
several of her own withiu a few days'
steaming, and all the resources of Japan
are at her disposal within a few hours,
If anything could make the theatrical
German orusade more ridiculous than
the imperial rhodomontade which ushered it in, it is that Prince Henry must
buy conl at a half-dozen British ports ou
his way to China, Not only is the
British lieet on the ground before the
German fleet starts, but the latter is
absolutely dependent on British help to
make Hs journey. The Russians are
little better off, because the English and
Japanese could shut them off in Port
Arthur and Vladlvostook, and work
tlieir will in Korea and Pckin.
This move opens a new phase in tin.
game of Europeauiziiig China. Great
Britain's protest against tlio displace*,
nient of British administrators in Korea
is nn earnest of the way in whicli she
will meet the developing plans for
Russianizing the Chinese administration,
British policy apparently is to take no
part in the partition of China, either to
share it or prevent it, but to require the
most absolute guaranties for her trad,
and to protect it against unfriendliness
of administration of any part of tlie
empire in which her commercial interests are greater than all other foreigners.
To this end she will menace Russia,
oppose Germany, support Japan,exhaust
the resources of diplomacy, and, if at
last needful, will fight. This is the
notice she has just served upon Europe

Timber on Mineral Claims.
The following is from the Sew Denver
I.rdge and will be of great interest to
many of our readers in East Kootenay:
The question of the right to timber on
mineral claims has been causing some
discussion in West Kootenay. Saw mill
men, acting under a decision of the
provincial timber inspector, have been
helping themselves to tha timber on
certain claims. Mr. W. A. Corbett, of
Summit camp, recently submitted the
matter to Hon. James Baker, minister
ef mines,and that official reversed the
timber inspector ill tlie following reply:
41 You ask what right you have to the
limber ou your mineral claim. I state
that you have the riglit to the whole of
the timber on your mineral claim
provided you are working it ns such and
that if any saw mill company is taking
the timber from your land you have a
perfect riglit to stop them anil should
apply to the nearest magistrate to do so.
" (Signed)   James 1'ukhh,
" Minister of Mines."    !

Boarding-House Geometry.
All boarding-houses are the same
Boarders in tho same boarding-house
nnd on the same flat are equal to one
A single room is that whicli lias no
parts and no magnitude.
A landlady of a boarding-house is a
parallelogram���that si,' an oblong and
angular figure, whicli cannot he described, but which is equal to anything.
A wrangle is tlie disinclination of two
boarders to each other that meet together but are not on the same flat.
All the rooms being taken, a single
room is said to be a double room.
A pie may be produced any number
of times.
Tlie landlady can be reduced to her
lowest terms by a series of propositions.
A bee-line can be made from any
boarding-house to any other bourding
Tlie clothes of a boarding-house bed,
though produced ever so far botli ways,
will not meet.
Any two meals at a boarding-house are
together less than two square meals.
If from the oppositeendsof a boarding-
house a line be drawn passing through
all the rooms in turn, then the stovepipe whicli warms the hoarders will lie
within that line.
On the same bill arrd nn the same side
of it there should not he two charges for
the same thing.
If there he two boardcres on lhe same
(hit aud tl'.e amount of side of one be
equal to the amount of tho side of the
other, each to each, nnd tlie wrangle between one boarder nnd tht) landlady be
equal to the wrangle between the
landlady anil the other,then shall the
weekly bills of the two boarders he equal
also, each to each.
For if not, lot one bill be the greater.
Then tho other hill is less than it
might have been���which is absurd.
British diplomacy sometimes seems
hit alow, but British fleets seldom
procrastinate when there is work to do.
Great Britain gave Europe a lesson iu
sea power when the " Hying squadron
able to scope with any foreipn licet, was
mobilised ia the channel without draw
ing a ship oft the foreign stations and
stood ready to meet an enemy at any
point at home or abroad. Now she gives
Asia a lesson in the sudden appearance
in Korer.n waters of seventeen ships,
able to meet any hostile combination,
and able, with the aid of thirty Japanese
ships, to dominate the whole northern
Pacific coast ot Asia, to shut up the
Russian ships in port and to cut off
French and German reinforcement.
Thia celerity of action and alert
preparedness for hostilities always has
been the secret of British successes at
sea. More on tbe ocean than on the
land victory is with the commander who
concentrates hie force at the right time
and place. Napoleon died in exile because he could not fight on two elements
at once, and had no naval duplicate
suddenness with which this fleet looms
up in the Yellow sea that recalls the
appearance of Nelson in the bay of
Biscay when Villeneuve thought he was
cruising in the West Indies. That was
the curtain-raiser lor the world drama
of Trafalgar.
One must reflect upon the conditions
of modern naval warfare to realizo the
importance of England's advantage,
assuming that she has a complete under-
