One of the biggest, if not the biggeat,
mineral strike made in this dletiict was
made this week in the Hewett mine,
near here. The strike, which consists
I six feet of shipping ore, was made in the
No 3. tunnel ut a depth below the outcrop of the vein of over 4C0 feet.
It appears that a stringer from the
pavstreak. which the miners were
following, struck off into the ledge matter
and as it had some fair ore in it well
worth taking out it waa followed for
some distance, leading to Ihe finding of
this new ore body. From 60 to 80 sacks
of ore are being taken out daily while
driving the tunnel through the new find
and when sloping is commenced upon
it that many tjns can be rained.
The finding of this body of ore at this
depth giveB permanency to the mine
and goes to prove thut not only do the
ore bodies in lhe vein retain their values
but also increase in size as depth is-
.ittained. Like most strikes made it was
un looked for and came us an agreeable
surprise to the management.

Editor Silvertomax:
Dear Sir:—
For some time nast the pages of a
paper which is possibly known to some
Silvertonians, I refer to the New Denver
"Ledge," have been graced by the effusions of a writer who appears to be possessed of a blind hatred of everything
that is decent, and respected on that ac- .
count by right-minded men. As a protest
against this weekly sacrilege I address
these few lines to you in the hope that
you may find space ior their publication.
It is true that the articles in question
emanate from the editor's "upper stope,''
but I do not, on that account, regard
them with with any degree of superstitious awe; on the contrary it appears to
ne that anyone perusing the products of
the stope in question will come tn the
conclusion that they consist largely of
waste matter, and that they lack hoth
silver to make them witty and lead to
give them weight.
In the fiist place, it will be granted, I
think, that the discussions of religions
topics should be carried on with due regard to the opinions and convictions of
others, and the editor of the Ledge errs
greatly in conducting his anti-religious
crusade with no other weapons than those
afforded by abuse and senseless vulgarity
If religion means nothing lo him, he
should, at any rate, bear in mind that it
means a great deal to others, whose
opinions are at least entitled lo respect.
It is not my intention to take up the
cudgels on behalf of any individual creed
in opposition toothers, as I am not anxious to descend to the level ol the Ledge,
nor is it at all necessary that I should
endeavour to do so, toy only object, as I
say, being to protest emphatically against
the scunilous remarks of the writer in
question, and attains! his ill-conceived attacks upon religion generally.
if Ihere be no Supreme Be ing (as I s"|>-

in every other department of knowledge
he has made sine and iuniiHiian progress
—only in the matter nf ihe tuiperuuinral

The Ledge's latest eftort in this matter
of religion is to suggest a scheme for a

The Gordon Mining & Milling company, operating a group of seven
claims a mile west of Erie, in West
Kootenay, is reported to have recently
encountered two good looking stringers of ore In Its crosscut tunnel. The
tunnel is ln about 150 feet. Assays of
$14.40 and $22.20 are said to have been
obtained from these stringers.
Work has been started on the Iron
Horse group, adjoining the Enterprise
on the Ten Mile side. Mark Manley
has returned from Spokane and at
once started preparations for work.
Recent reports Indicate that the Sullivan group In East Kootenfty is looking better than ever. It has been definitely decided to build a railroad spur
from the Kimberly siding to the mine
and this will probably be completed
within three months.
While enlarging the station In the
tunnel level of the Morrison at Greenwood, preparatory to sinking a winze,
the drills broke through what was presumed to be the wall of the vein, and
are now working in a rich shoot of cop-

$10,000 Stolen.
Des Moines, Iowa, Feb. 11.—A dispatch
from Manila, Iowa, gives meager details
of the theft of an express safe said to contain $10,000. When the passenger train
from the north on the Sioux City ft Da-
knt.i branch of the Chicago, Milwaukee ft
St. Paul railroad arrived at 10 o'clock two
truck loads of freight of the American
Express company were unloaded from the
express car to be transferred to No. 1 east-
bound on the main line. The trucks stood
on thc platform for a short time. When
No. 4 arrived and the packages were being loaded the absence of a small safe,
said to contain $10,000, Wat discovered.
Train No. 4 was held an hour and a search
for the safe was prosecuted, but without
result. No clue to the robbers or their
method of operation is known.
Sioux City, Iowa, Feb. 11.—Three
men, believed to have been Implicated
In the theft last night at Manila, Iowa,
of a United States Express Co. safe,
said to contain $40,000, were arrested
at that place this morning. They were
traced by their tracks ln the snow. The
men are John Jackson, John Stovall
and Charles Hayes. All live at Manila
and are well known. Their reputations
heretofore have not been bad. They
stoutly protested their Innocence. Mrs.
Jackson, wife of John Jackson, was also arrested, but at a preliminary hearing she was released. The three men
are ln jail, having been unable to furnish bonds fixed at $12,000 each. None
of the money or valuables has been recovered. The safe that was stolen contained ln tbe neighborhood of $40,000.
Two thousand dollars was in cash and
the remainder ln drafts, checks and
various valuables. a .
out was about 90 tons and that ore will
be sent in future as fast as teams can
be secured. At this time only about 20
tons per week can be shipped.
Another stratum flve feeet wide has
beeen encountered in the big Wauconda
tunnel. Two assays have been made
that are decidedly encouraging. One
sample was taken across the face of the
ledge abont a foot below the roof and
the other about a foot above the floor
of the tunnel. The former gave $11.40
per ton and the latter $13.60.
The raise in the Quilp is producing

Mr. .Tackling states positively that
there was not the least doubt that

200 tons per day will be treated. The
treatment is about as perfect as It Is
possible to bring It. The results have
more than met expectations and are
getting better. Up to date 7,000 tons
of ore have been treated. Mr. Jackling
says that $14 ore can be treated with
The development during January In
the various mines operated In Republic

There are numerous reasons for this,

a railroad will be constructed into the

hopes that were once entertained for
the successful operation of the custom

London, Feb. 11.—A comprehensive
view of international conditions revcais
only improved prospects for continued
pence and harmony. From the British
standpoint Queen Victoria's death appears
to have strengthened rather* weakened Qreat Britain's position among the
nations. A sutlicieut time has elapsed since
Victoria ceased to reign for the foreign
office to feel the political pulse of the capitals of Kurope and the brief examination,
commenced in no spirit of cocksureness,
resulted in a feeling of satisfaction and
security at Downing street. The foremost
factor in this, naturally, is Emperor William's attitude. Responsible oiliciais here
m.ikr no attempt to conceal their elation,
at the circumstances attendant upon his
majesty's visit. Tliey do not shut their
eyes at tlie dissatisfaction the emperor iias
saused among certain sections of his subjects, but rely implicitly upon the imperious force of tierniany's ruler to successfully Overcome the internal opposition
engendered. Closer relations undoubtedly
now exist between Great Britain and Germany. Lord Salisbury and Lord Lons-
doune are quite prepared to hear Count
von iliielow, the imperial chancellor, satirically lielitlle lhe effect of Emperor William's visit, but in Downing street this
will bc taken as meant purely for home
Aicri-ement With  I'nrtiiinil.
"The alliance between (ircat Britain and
Portugal scarcely needed the \.-.. of King
Charles to render it stronger. Vet the
continued stay hen of the ruler is believed lo lie likely to bring Portugal and
Qreat Htituiu in closer touch, thus rendering easier the work of their respective
government*. As far as the diplomatic
phase goes the Associated Press is officially Informed that nothing new lias resulted
from the king of Portugal's stay in London. The mutual responsibilities iu connection with Delagoa bay were too well
known previously to need further discussion. Thus Portugal, Germany and l!i ii.nn are believed to he more
closely united than ever in their history—
united by a compact that in the opinion
of leading British statesmen is stronger
than ever the dreibiind, which is yearly
becoming more of a tradition than a working agreement.
The only feature of thc recent international happenings regretted at Downing
Street il the emperor's decoration of Field
Marshal Ijord Roberts with the order of
the Black Kagle. It ia thought In- majesty went almost too far, in view of the
hostile comments the German press is in
the habit of showering on Great Britain's
South African campaign.
".Still,"' say the oflieials, "Emperor William never does things by halves."
According to dispatches in the British
press, French Anglophobism seems to huve
abated since the queen's death.
Austria and Italy are put down as sure
to do nothing contrary to Emperor William's wiah. It is easily seen that Emperor William is the dominating figure in
Boropean a Hairs. To this Great Britain
has uo objection. She has made it poasi-
ble nml trusts to benefit by it. Relationship between the reigning families of Europe is nol held to be of much account
among the chancellories, hut so fur as it
goes, it is believed that King Edward
VII.'s personality will tend to improve its
degree of potency.

Des Moines, Iowa, Feb. 10.—Mrs. Nation's tour through the western port of the
ei.iln took on a new feature und was a
triumphal one to the KanSas aaloon
Kiuaeher. She made a dozen addresses
from the platform of a Koek Island pas-
nenger train to as many crowds in the

damage but drawing sueh a big crowd on

to stop the crusade. In thc evening she
addressed 'MOO people in the Y. M. 0. A.
The journey from Council Bluffs to Atlantic was made quietly, the hour being
too early for many people to be out to
see the crusader.
At Atlautic the first visitors swarmed
into'the train and as Mr*. Nation saw
them coming down tlie aisle she cried out:
"Hello, boys, glad to see you. Shake
hands. Ood bless the hoys, the young
men; I tell you 1 just love you all."
The first large crowd of the duy was at

Over $2,000,000 will be asked from the
legislature for the state institutions and its
officers for the ensuing two years. Already there ure oilier appropriation bills
Introduced asking for 91,000,000 more in
round numbers. This will give the legislators a problem ot' how to imiKc an available revenue of less than -jy.OOO.OOU satisfy
demands for more than 13,000,000.
Estimates have been prepared by the
state officers for the needs of their departments, proposed new- buildings and salaries. They show an increase over the appropriations made two j-ears ago, in some
instances of considerable amount. The
need for new buildings at several institutions is argued, also the alleged increased expense of running the offices and institutions. With the exception of the grain
commissioner and the lish commissioner
all the estimates for the departments are
given as prepared by the officials
or deputies. The fish and grain commissioners are absent and estimates for their
departments arc based on former appropriations.

East London, Cape Colony, Feb. 11.—
Details have been received here of severe fighting at Tabaksberg mountain,
40 miles east of the railway and about
midway between Small Deel and
Bloemfontein. Major Crewe, with a
composite column traveling southwest,
sighted the mountain on the morning
of January 21. He heard heavy firing,
and knowing that Colonel Pllcher's
column was on the other side of the
mountain, he concluded that this officer
was In action. Consequently he hur1-
rled forward, only to meet the Boers
streaming down, and evidently retiring from Colonel Pllcher's lyddite
shells. Immediately Major Crewe
brought three 15-pounders And a pompom to bear on the Boers, who. however, were found to be so numerous
that It was impossible to head them
off. Orders were given to return to
camp about two miles from the mountain. The column rested until 4 o'clock
In the afternoon, when the march was
resumed southwest.
Major Crewe was just touching the
southern point of the mountain when
a terrific rifle fire opened from a large
force of Boers in ambuscade on the
mountains. The flght soon became general, the Boers" attacking the British
on both flanks and the rear. The British pompom jammed and became useless. Major Crewe grasped the situation and by a brilliant move got the
convoy Into a safe position. Between
7 and 8 o'clock ln the evening the Boers
charged the position and turned both
flanks. The British ammunition became exhausted and Major Crewe was
obliged to retire and abandon the pompom after the advance party had endeavored to save it and had sustained
a severe loss. Rear guard action was
fought by Major Crewe Into the camp
where the wagons had been laagered.
Entrenchments were thrown up during
the night.
When morning came Major Crewe
started to join General Knox, 12 miles
to the southwest. The Boers Immediately re-attacked him, compelling him
to fight a second rear guard action for
a few miles. General Dewet personally commanded the Boers, and they
were estimated at 2500.
Major Crewe's force was only 700.
Eventually the British officer joined
General Knox and returned to Bloemfontein. Lord Kitchener has highly
complimented Major Crewe on hiE
Pretoria, Feb. 11.—The columns
working eastward occupied Ermelo,
February 6, with Blight opposition. A

unJer Louis Botha, retired eastward.
About 800 wagons with families passed
through Ermelo on the way to Amater-
day and a very large quantity of stock
is being driven east.
A peace delegate, under sentence of
death, and other Boer prisoners, were
taken by the Boers. All the reports
show that the Boers are exceedingly
bitter.    Fifty Boers surrendered.
Louis Botha, with 2000 men, attacked
General Smith Dorrlen at Orange camp
at 3 a. m., February 6. He waa repulsed
after severe fighting.
General Spruit was killed, General
Randemeyer was severely wounded and
two cornets were killed. Twenty of
the Boer dead were left in our hands
and many severely wounded. Our casualties were 24 killed and 53 wounded.
Our movement to the east is reported
to have thoroughly upset all the enemy's calculations and created a panic

Prior to last election James Dunsmuir declared that he would discharge

mines. After lieing elected, nnd made
Premier of the Piovince, he, with a
great flourish of trumpets, declared
tbat he had discharged all his Chinese
coal miners. A few days ago a
disastrous explosion occurred at one of
his mines, and what do we find? That
out of 61 men in this mine 20 were
white, 35 Chinese aud nine Japanese.
It is perhaps under the circumstance
fortunate that there were no more

had been employed would this explosion have occurred? How is

In   Southern   Alberta    and    East
Kootenay there are thousands of acres
of coul  lands,   some  developed, some
partly developed, and the rest,   by tar
the greater part, undeveloped and only
partially taken up.    We hayo talked
within th») last few weeks with those
who   have  gone over these coal fields
and have   seen seams  five  miles long
and twelve   feet   thick,   magnificent
outcrops and deposits.    In Blairmore,
Pincher   Creek   and   Livingston   are
mines being opened, in addition to the
thousands of   acres of coal lands held
by the C. P. R. and by the Dominion
Government  in East Kootenay.    All
these in addition to the Fernie mines,
paving an output of 1200 tons of coal
por day.    Within   a   few months the
output from these  mines could supply
fifty  times more  coke and coal than
British Columbia is now using.    Shut
out   railroad   competition   from   the
district and none of the new mines will
be worked.    The question is not one
of a scarcity of  coal but a scarcity of
market.   Tho coal industry of Western
Canai'a premises to be a great one if
allowed to prosper but nothing will be
done   unless   railroad   competition   is

Will the smelting industry of the

tneatiB. llle C. P. R. being in the

the industry. At the present time
when there is little competition
between local smelters for ore the
cinch is not felt, but let that time
come when the CPR smelter must

smelterH be able to tlo it dependent
upon the C P R railway for th ir

owns twenty thousand acres of coal

to cinch the ether coal-owners, does it
seem likely that they will allow them
to compete in coul? We have seen the
CPR chocking townsites, rival to
their own, in the Crows Nest, and in
the same way will they hold back the

It must be rather astonishing to the
people of Eastern Canada to note liow
intensely patriotic the Canadian
Pacific Railroad Company becomes
when once Winnipeg is past on the
way west The patriotic cry has been
woiked to death anyway in Canada,
and at any rate has not the slighest
reason for obtruding into the present
question as to whether Jim Hill and
his Great Northern iato be allowed an
entry into the coal-fields of East
Kootenay and Southern Alberta.
Tbe C. P. R., in the first place, is
not a Canadian owned railroad and
the people of Canada owe it nothing
for any favors received. It was
built, as al! know, with Canada's
money, but now ia controled by foreign
capitalists entirely. It u Canadian
only in name and at the present time
is doing just what ita officials and
newspapers claim that Jim Hill will
do—building up American bities at
the expense of Oanadian ones. It
plays a cinch game wherever it has
the opportunity; it hauls American
freight cheaper than Canadian; it has
the Kootenay smelting industry at its
mercy, and now wants the people of
Canada to confirm it in ita monoply in
the West and to choke off any competition whatever. And the hook is
baited with a Union Jack.
We are told how inimical it would
be for the mining and smelting interests of British Columbia to allow a
railroad from Montana to enter our
coal fields because it would divert the
shipments of coke from our smelters
to those of Montana.    It would also

Last year the international ,coul
trade ainoutited to nearly 7,000.000
tons. Canada imported 5,433,000]
tons and exported 1,484.570. Ontario!
is supplicl from Pennsylvania, while'
at three points Canadian cual is exported—at tho Atlantic coast, at. the
Pacific and at Fernie and Letlibridge.
The traffic is so mutual and the countries so inter-dependent that free trade
in coal would lie beneficial to both.
Putting an export duty on B. C. coal
would be ruinous to East Kootenny's
prospects of prosperity in the coalfields.
No boundary linps exist in railroad matters east of Winnipeg and
none shall exist in the went. What i8
good for one must help the other.
The 0 P R is not British Columbia,
neither is this Province a preserve fur
that system. We cannot expect,
competition from another Canadian
road in Southern British Columbia,
but we can and do expect competition
by roads from across the border.
Sentiment has nothing to do here, it is
a question of relief from the cinch
