 Vol. 3.���������No. 45. -  EE7ELST0KE; WEST KOOTENAY,.B.C., FEBRUARY, 27, 189-7.  $2.00 a Year.  Illecillewaet,  The first stimulus to mining in Wc*-~t  Kootenay was given by the construction of thc'C. P. 11. across the Selkirks  in ISSo. As il appi one-heel the Rockies  the mi-.1i to .Silver City begun,"and as it  went westward Cathedral and Tunnel  mountains were next pro.-pocl.ecl. Tnen  the Ottertail iiiid Hear Creek sections  were .scare-hod and indications of higher; grade ore weie found. When tin*  Selkirks were ri*nched, however-, in the  neighhorhodcl of Illecillewaet. the Uo.-il  . gel Mill better arid assays from surface  roc-k went up in lhe hundreds.    A rush  followed and   numerous  'claims   were  i    i  ' ' -'  staked which on accounl'ol their* propinquity to the railway attracted much  attention, and thc- Illecillewaet camp,  the first in West TCnolcnay, vvas started. ,i  The first incsjl promising claims discovered at Illecillewaet, were t he Jumbo, Tlnppy Find and Crystal, located in  ISSo'li^D.

Mofvinnon  were located iu \S6\ also soveial' others  of later  note.   These   "finds"  drew  a  number  of   people   to   the  camp and,  several transfers and bonds took place."  In ISiStj.-tlsn, the Jjimho made-., Lho lirst,  , trial shipment  fioin   the camp, one of  ten tons(U. England)and  every thing  was bright for the new  camp.    In  'S7,  (lie prospects  were still   brighter-, and  , yet, more people came in.    The Lanark  macle'tlie first regular .-.hipment of ore  from it he camp, .one of about 200   tons,  and thus earned the distinction not   onlv of sending outthe' first shipment cif silver-lend ore from the di.-trictcif W.

The.-e shipment-   with   those of  smaller size, including one from Ihe Is-  . ahellaof ten'tons which gave the* highest returns in the  camp, amounted  to  237 tons with a silver value of .$17,931,  and this was   the   ainoitut "cif the   first  ���������year's shipments from West Kootenay..  That year' also,  1.SS7,   larger   in'iprcivo-  ments took place, the town of Illecill'e-'  w.-iet   grew   rapidlv,'  roads and 'trails  were made, and it was-1 In- camp of tin  'i _ j , -  tainty of good true  leads, there  is  no  reason   why' illecillewaet   should not I C!OLDi's.v,������������������ These properties,' owned   by  merit.

To-day,  the fields in South ICoolenay  are   well  filled, al tent ion   is   once   more   being  turned   noli h wards, and   the   premier  camp   of -Kootenay���������Illecillewaet���������is  again in many months.    It   now   bids  fair- to once again join the cither divisions'of the district in swelling those ore  shipments which it was fii-.-t to begin.  This flesh impetus, for   there   i.s   al-  \v;iyJ ii cause for each  effect, was  first  given in '05  by .Captain   John   Grant,  who took an option on the*' Maple Leaf  and commenced work.    Then the han-  ark Co. stalled, and   confidence  begun  ton turn.    The Lilloool, Feasor River  & Cariboo  Gold  Fields   Co., combined  with   llie   haiiai'k  Cn., bought out last  you- lhe. Maple;   Leaf   and   adjoining  claims   for   $100,000, and   commem-ed  with great eneigy  to  open   them.    So  oncoiiingcd have they   been    with    the  results of their-   work   that   I hey   have  now put up an airiul tiam and  erected  a large concentrator to haul and   treat  the ores.

With Mr. Ke.llic we fully ngiee. that,
such capitalisation as is now going on
'"* is reckless and will icsult hat infnlly.
P.ut will the. piosent. bill check the
over capitalisation L whon for 8*215 a
million dollar company can be   floated.
, If this million' dollar flotation is unnecessary or harmful why not put on
a fee lhat will check it and put on fees
for smaller sums that would be aii�� inducement to incorporate at. Then
again, is section (20 requiring a tenth
of the capital paid up iu cash the fair-
thing to the poor promoter. While
urgency is necessar y with the bill it
needs careful' revision by the committee and the House.
