"Address    .'   <
oTiiH Koori.NAY Mail,
Boyelstoko, B.C.
That mining is undoube'rlly, the industry of greatest benefit to British
Columbia, which will bring the greatest amount of money to the country
and wealth to its people, is undeniable.
Already tbe mineral production is
chief in the country's list' of exports,
and it has but," now commenced. To
this production South Kootenay is by
far the largest' contributor; a result
which is iu a great���perhaps the greal-
' flst���measure due to the untiring
efforts of its Press which, in and out
of  season, 'has   kept   its   merits   as   a
mineral  field before the notice of the
-     * ii '
investing world.
That North Kobtenay, containing
such well known camps as J3ig Jlend",
Lardeau, Trout Lake, ' 1 llocillew.iot
and others, has mineral of equal richness, quantity and variety as contained
in South Kootenay, is, hy prospectors
and mining men well qualified to judge,
readily, admitted. Yet; its development has been comparatively slow,
which ".is in a great .measure due, no
���doubt, to'the fact that its resources
have not received that degree of public
Attention which  their worth deserves.
This, however, will no, longer be (at
least from tho want of publicity,) as the
KoofKNAY "Mail, the only paper iii all
North Kootenay, lias now changed
ownership and ever}' eil'oi f will 'bo
jnade in the future to do full and adequate justice, to the mineral wealth of
this section and press, its claims ,to
public' notice.,     . ' 1V
The policy of the Mail under its
iiew management will be to advance.
at  all  times,   the   country's   good:  to.
:\i!iswonh.    It   is   argued ,that pr<
peclors should be all.jwvd to iccord   at
Kaslo as they would then tint have ,to
cioss the divide ,to Trout Lake. ��At
present the only way _fri.ii-. L.irclo-
JJuncau to Kaslo is hy the Jhincau
river, which this very article says 'is
"a,very rapid stream which requires
the presence of a person thoroughly
conversant with the methods of navi
gating such waters to be at all possible
as a- moans of access." Need more be
s-iid as to the present best' place for
record, Trout Lake,'or Kaslo. The'
writer himself would no 'doubt prefer
rather the crossing of a divide, to
navigating to Kaslo by the Duncan'
ri\Vr which "he repeats is dangerous
for even tin expert boatman."
The Claim writer did not evidently
consult the wishes of the .majority of
claim owners in this district of L.udo-
Duncan who are almost entirely in
favor of the Trout Lake ollice, and in
his desire to bring men down the
Duncan river to reoord at Kaslo he
does so froti^the motive so innocently
expressed elsewhere that it would
prme of inestimable benefit to Kaslo.
No doubt' , '���
'Mh& Claim urges the' necessity -of
building a trail from head of Koiucnay
Lake to-Hall Creek and estimate, its
costal i-2,7o0. While the' people of
Kaslo are welcome to .-ill they can get,
it is necessary to explain' that obt;
people, of Trout Lake properties, are
almost till perfectly content, with their
piesent br lindanes 'and outlet and in
the present state of depletion in winch
West  Kootenay is a Country to Be
0 "     Prcud Of.    .
The following very conservative
article, which recently appeared in the
Eu()iuccriiui and Miithiy Joiiriud, is
woithy of lepiodtiction as a s.-imple of
the attention now being jsaid to the
district.      It,   might.,    however,    have
a. McNeil;

the public purse  is,   it' is   well   to   bv
careful and economical in- its   t-xpendi- i during 1S'.)7>  was , very
with perfect t ruth said'more.    For instance it  quotes   the   output ot   West
Kootenay for] S-)3ias $],87.),0(;(), whereas
it should be so.-iio ij-2,175.0!!') or possibly
even more :
Judged by the standard of tlie Hand,
We-lralia, or Cripple Crook, the. district ol" West Kooten-iv, Hi Wish Col-
uiiib'a, can hardly be regarded 3'et as
one of Ihe foremost producer- of the
precious met a Is. But if t he almost in-(
credible difficulties in the way of the
development of the country, arising
both from its large area and l ugged
nature, and from the fact that while it,
is politically a part of Canada, it is
geographically tributary to the United
Slates, be iaken into account, the advance, it has made since 18.11 is most
sf i iking. West Kootenay is not a
single ore bell, like Cripple Creek or
tho Hand, but a collection of mining
camps of widely dilForanfohai act eristics
scattered through the mountains which
fringe1 (ho course of the' Columbia
river from the -49th to the olst, parallel.
���In 1891 a little desultory mining was
being cai ried on at the Hall mines on
Toad Mountain, at Ainswortb, and at
the lllue Bo)i"mino on Kootenay Lake.
Means of Communication with the outside woild there, weie none except
during the summer months, and,,only
a low sample, shipments of ore had
borne witness to the'possibilities, of tbe,
country. , << ,>
Now there are no fewer than five
short linos of. railway On continuous
operation connoctiog the different producing camps with the main waterways by which llioir output finds its
way to the smelting and refining
centre-. And railway construct inn is
mil/ by any moans at a stands-till, but
i- being pushed forward in ail directions
to keep''pace with tiie requirements of
(lie mines. "
In 18!)1 there was not   a   single   producing mine in the country; now there
;ii e no fewer than  IS  properties  which
are actually   producing   and   shipping

ii; ;,t THE KOOTENAY jIAIL.  PAGE 3  TO THE POLE ,  IN A BALLOON.  HOW  ANDREE  W1IL   ACCOMPLISH  HIS JOURNEY.  Interesting Details About the Extensive  Preparations Now Uuder Weigh���������  The Start to be Made Late in May  or Early in 'June���������The Balloon  Being Constructed in Paris.  An exchange gives some   inlet ehting  particulars about .M. Andree,   the  balloon expert, for whom I lie natives and  re'-idents   of   Northern    Canada  have  been rccjnested  to  be on   the  lookout  by     the     Ilud.son'.s     JJ..y     company.  Andree 1ms thc; courage- of- his convictions, and he believes that   the  undertaking planned by  him   is  not hy  far  as dangeioils and   nii'n-e  feasible  than,  the trip   upon   which  Nansen   entered  some two years ago.    For a long   lime  ,   Andree had been figuring and  experimenting   and  planning,   until  hi:  has  reached a point where no detail of  the  pending join ney has been left' untried.  The aeronautic exploits of   Mr. Aud-  ���������   ree, have   become _ known    all    over  the world, and   he  has  made a   name  for himself as one of  the   moat  audac-  1    ions nie'n that ever ascended  in  a  balloon.  Once  he  went up  from   Stockholm  ' , and crossed the gulf of , Bothnia,   lauding on the bluires of Finland,  a deed  never before dried.    Another  time  iie  .sailed in his balloon .from   tho 'city, of  Gothenburg, on. the'western  coast of  Sweden, to the Island nf'Gothland,   in  the Baltic; {raversing  the  distance  of  2.J0 niilet. in-live hours. "The noticeable,  feat are of his doings An these and other  , similai,   occasions  was  not that  with  the help of chance he' performed  feats  never before accomplished, but'I hat in  ,   every instance the aim   to   be  reached  'stood   clear  before  him  and   that   he  'reached   that   aim   along, the     roads  mapped out in advance. ���������  The little expedition of   which  Andree will be the head,  will   be  made up  , of   three  men,   Andree, 'Nils  Kkholm  and Nils Slrindberg.   Kkiiolni is a man  of IS ye.:is. a  sci.-nti-l,  bv   natural   inclination and bv   siibsecp'.ent   develo.-  nient.    For the  last   twenty 'years . he  has   been  devoting  his  undivided  at-  tentiou to ,sthe study  of  meteorology,  in lrf'tihc acted  as  the  chief for  the-  ,  Swedish   expedition,   to    Spitzheigen,  which   was  working  m   conceit  with  t similar expeditions from   this  countr\  a:ul ten European countries.    It is generally asserted tliat the result achieved  by the Swedish  expedition   surpassed  those gained by any one  of the other  expeditions, and that this  was  chieJlv  ' brought about liy   the  excellent  work  done bv Kkholm.    At the present time  Ekholiu is, by jijl  European  students,  considered an authority u.i the. hraiiuh  ��������� of  natural  science  to   which'lie   has  devoted himself. ,   '  The third member of the trio of explore!?, is a very young man, only 2-1  years of age. Yet Nils Slrindbeig has  -already succeeded in making a name  for himself as a physical student of  high standing having paid special attention to electric phenomena. He is  .also an expert, photographer, and n.s  such will be of great use to the expedition.  " Pole Nord," er "The North Pole,"-  is tbe name Mv. Andree has chosen  for" the ' gig.in' ic balloon which is to  carry him and his fellow explorers lo  the pole. Tt will .have a diameter of  ���������some 05 feet and it will hold nhout 160,'-  ,000 cubic feet. ' At present it is being  built ;it Vanguard, a suburb of Paris.  Tht"' silk (o be usi'd has been especially  ordered from the best looms of Lyons.  Three thicknesses of silk are to be  Used. To join them together a new  kind of varnish has been especially invented by Mr. Andree. When ready  the .balloon will be practically gas  proof.  1 {ringing down from the  balloon are  the guide ropes, weighing 2.200 pounds.  They arc made of cocoanut  (ibei,   the  lower end   of   them   being   saturated  with a" mixture of vaseline and lard   in  order io enable them to float on   water  and glide over  the  ice   without  being  torn to pieces.    Mv.  Andree   is giving  careful   attention   to  these  items,   in  which lie is won; i.������ see the safeguards  of  the   expedition.   They   have   been  submitted to the  most exacting  tests  before being attached to   the   balloon.  First, the ends of the ropes were  fixed  iigainstall rapidly  turning  wheel   with  rough surface and was allowed to stay  in such posit ion unl il   the  turns  made  by   the   wheel   repi cseut ed   a   way   of  more   (ban   sixty   miles.    At  the  con-  ciiisioiioi  the   tests   (he   line-:  showed  iii) marks whalcccr of the rough treatment to whic h tiiev had   been   subjected,    lint no;, satisfied   ..iili   tin-,,   Mr.  A'idiee   sub.i'u.'ed    tlc'iii    to   another  still more i gi i lest.

Circulars concerning the expedition  have been spiead all over the countries;  adjoining the Arctic regions. With  the assistance of the English, Russian  and Danish government they have  been en tried to every ' point .within  these regions where civilized people'  are residing, as agents or- representatives of these governments or their  subjects.  Another feaiuie of the equipment  will be a small colony of carrier pigeons, trained at (he expense of the  great Stockholm paper the Aflonblcdct.  The slatio:i to which the pigeons are  being trained to return is located in  the noi theruniost part of Norway.  There are 102 of. them.  A great p;u t of thc equipment of the  expedition has been donated hy" merchants from all quarters of S.M'.len,  the old king heading the' list with a  subscription of ijiT.aOO and IJaron Oscar  Dickson following him with a similar  amount.  Dining the latter part of May or (he  early pari'of June the expedition will  leave the Swedish port of Gothenburg,  finboaid the steamer Virgo, which  has been chartered for the purpose.  The steamer will at once head tor the  islands of Spitzbergeu, a group of t wo  large and' several ' smaller islands  located between four and five hundred  miles to the north from the Scandinavian peninsula.  '< The first business oT the explorers  and Ithe crew of the steamer,'in which  several skilled workmen are ' incl.ided,  will be to erect the house to be used  when fitting and preparing the balloon. ' <���������    '  Along the top of the house is built  a balcony from which the balloon is to  be(handled when it is to be raised for  the stail. ,, .      , '  Finally, when everything is ready,  tho balloon tilled and impatiently tugging on the restricting lines; tlie gondola fastenedl under 'the gigantic gas  filled globe, and the" three courageous  men that ai e to 'make - the trip ready  and at their |(osts; then a few shoit  words of command will be heard and  t le .-a oi's and laborer.* will let the  ropes glide out of their hands. The  swelling balloon lloals majestically  upwards to be caught and carried  away by the southern breeze. A , last  shout of- farewell !( And Andree and  his two comrades are off for th'e pole.

A I'imvs-fferatd's New York special  says: -"Thomas Edison has succeeded,  with the aid of the X ray. in pcn'etiat-  ing the human body with the naked  eye, the successful experiment Laving  been made last, week. .He looked into  the lungs and heart and examined tl e  arteries, muscles and b!o..d \ i-s^t-Is of  one of his assistants. With the powerful cathode light behind the i.i bject,  he looked through a screen of prepared  chemicals, and is said to have, plainly  seen thc workings of the various organs  of the body."  SAMPLES OF  READY WIT.'  Rough but Rich���������Smart   Sayings by  Smart People.  The reply of Lord Rothschild to an  English .-snob is given as a good sample  of ready wit. Ic happened at an assemblage of wealthy people in England  not long ago. Rothschild was surrounded by many men of learning, and  was con versing with one who always  allowed his detestation of eveiything  Jewish to overcome ordinary good  maimers and common politeness. Coni-  inenli'ig'upon the beauties of a place  which this gentleman of standing and  position had visited in his travels, he  so far forgot himself as to add to one  of his remarks: "And I was- informed,  loo, that (here are neither Jews nor  hogs to be found there!" < '  Tt was Aii unp.-irdonableafl'ront under  such circumstances, iind the great  lit.ancicr.'douhfless felt (hat it merited  a slinging retort, for he immediately  responded: "Is, that really so, sii\J  Then you and I should certainly pay  that spot a visit. Wershnul<l he great  curiosities." '  The son of an English earl, staying  in A'ienna, was one evening atadinni-r,  to which also had been invited'nome of  the ' most distinguished ladies and  gentlemen of that city. One,of the  ladies,' noted even amongst her intimate fiiends for saying shrewd but  ungracious tilings,' considered , the  Englishman worthy of her somewhat  .embarrassing nbsci vations,, and -siiiil-  ingly asked him how it was that the  English people'genei ally spoke French  so indiU'erently.^    , ,-  " Why, my lord," she added, encouraged bj- tbe smiles of some of tiie  others, "we Ai<������t ri.-ms use (hat tongue  with the same freedom as" we do our  native la'.igii.iire."  ".Madam," vv as (he biting rejoinder  she bad little anticipated, " L can only  account, for it by the fact that you have  twice entertained the Fre.nch army in  your capital, and we have never permitted them to enter ours,!"  At the first peri'ormance of Duma.-;.  " Etrangerc '" every body appeared to  be so pi ('occupied and woi e such a  serious countei:;inee that Marshal Can-  robert. who happened lo be present,  remarked ic, and inquired the icason.  .Madame Urohan, it is recorded, an c.ver-  ed :  " We are on the. eve of a great battle,  and I suppose f. ar.dt'ects us as you see."  "Feair"the   iuaisbal  said,   lookinu-  round with il pir/.zled air.  Ma.lame 'Briiii.-ii,' immediately summoned an attendant and' briefly s-;1jtl :  " Pjcard. ,i dictionary foi the marshal."  A neater or'wittier compliment in  fewer words it'would be impossible lo  produce. , , -���������  A lady once venlmed to publicly  reprov.j a well-knowii London soci 'ty  man for his over-fondness��������� of good  living. The_ gentleman' made himself  conspicuous by the way he gorged himself at, a diniiei to which he and othe.s  of tbe upper ten had been invited., To  make matters worse lie wa.ssul.iricntly  unwise, or thoughtless enough, to attempt to excuse himself with the remark (hat: "In eating well 1 praisV-  the food,"' thereby.-using a well-knnv. n  quotation.  Il was an opportunity not to be lost  by the somen hat disgusted and witty  lady sitting at his elbow. ���������   .
