The new compressor plant just ordered for Le Roi will be the largest
ever built in Canada. It is to be
manufactured at Shorhrooke, Que., and
will be powerful enough to operate 40
drills. Tlie contract calls for completion in live months. The plant will
be located on the Black Bear ground,
which claim adjoins the Le Roi on the
west, and excavations for tbe foundations of the buildings have boon commenced. The mine will shortly re-
commence a big daily output, and a
much larger force of men be employed.
The output prom sed is to be moro
than double ils greatest record in the
past, being no less tin.11 .'100 tons a
.lay As the bottom levels are now ii.
vory rich ore, 1100 tons a day will represent what may be termed a good-
sized fortune l.e Roi must take precedence oror all other gold mines in
the great Northwest, not only for tho
quantity of ore shipped, but also fruits richness. Some assays of rock
from the bottom of the shaft '4li0
feet) made this week gave the astonishing result of $280 in gold to the ton.
A daily output of H'2^0 ore would
mean $84,COO every twenty-four hours.
Think of that, ye Cripple Creekers and
ye capitalists of the effete East! To
those looking for good mining Investments we would state that there aro
hundreds of mines iu this camp that,
may equal l.e Roi at the same stage of

SO.MI3 weeks ago I brought before tho
readers of Till: Golden Eua a subject
of no common interest to the free miners of East Kootenay. It was the
action of the Perry Creek Mining Co.,
and at the same time asking for further information. I havesince received
some, and now take the opportunity of
communicating it to those who feel
interested in the subject. "Uld niel
ibi apes" is very near the point. Where
there is attraction there will surely be
admirers. If the property under dispute is of any value, it should and
will be sought after, even for the good
of the community. It is to the interest of every one residing in East Kootenay to see the Perry Creek gold property in operation and not allowed to
remain as a monument of the many
losses of capital to deter others from
investing in 'he country. Tbe property can, I feel assured, be profitably
worked if properly managed. A portion of Perry Creek was leased to
Messrs. .1. W. Ridgway and Geo.
Schrouder of Perry Creek ou the 21st
dav of Octolr-er. 1887.
A part of the lease read as follows :
'Tin said li ��� ens, the executors, nd-
. aii'i assigns will expend
in tne mine while working of the
premises demised by this Indenture a
sum of money of not less than liftien
hundred dollars during thc first year
ol the term hereby granted and not
less than three thousand dollars during each and everv year of the remainder ol the said term and will furnish
to the Gold Commissioner ol th-i district in each year of the term hereby
granted n statement iu writing verified
under the Oaths Ordinance 180!) by the,
said lessees or their agents of the expenditure aforesaid during each year."
and again it reads: "i hat if the said
lessees their executors, administrators,
or assigns shall cease for the space of
one venr to carry on milling operations
much   higher wa;
his   demands   are  sometimes so great
that, it often prevents the operation of

some of them that the columns will be
furnished. They will he richly sculptured and the motto of the nation presenting each, will be inscribed at its
base. They will also have the name
of the tuition presenting each'set in
gold, silver or aluminium letters at
the top. Eight hundred smaller columns, composed of .Mexican onyx and
aluminum will also be used.
At the American end of the building,
above thu main entrance, will be inscribed : ''United States of America,'*
and at the Canadian entrance, "Ontario, Dominion of Canada." Above the
central entrance will bo tlie word "Utii-
tarious," Inside the building sieel
girders will he used for the purposo of
support; iron columns will also he
placed between the lloors. Forty-seven
million, live hundred and twenty
thousand feet of lire proof flooring will
be required, which it is estimated will
cost at least $475,21 0. The structure
will have 11,1)1)2 windows and a correspondingly large number of doors.
The first ten stories will be used tor
dynamos and other apparatus for generating electricity.
At   the  extreme  lower front of the
.. ... . ,      ises
is  certainly  an   injustice to Force tlio'
mines to pay an additional $5 10 work
in a mine. Before a man can locate,
hold, or deal in a mining property he
should, and most rightly too, he made
to pay this tax, for my part I would
rather see a double tax placed upon
such men than to sie ths miner taxed
a cent for the privilege of working for
his bread It is the option of any to
meddle in mining hut a man must
work for his living and it's unfair to
burden optional andoompulsary actions
aliko. Besides it casts a cloud over
the mining industry which it has no
right to do.
I should like to suggest to lho Executive Committee of the B.C. Miners
.Association that they would be conferring a great benefit 0:1 East Kooteiiny if they could accom) lish this end.
I should like also 10 propose that the
fee lie made $10 for ull persons locating,
holding or dealing iu mining properties ill tlie Province, but that miners
should be free to work iu mines
which they have no interest in.
