An Expensive Undertaking to Enrich the  Coal Barons of Crow's" Nest Pass.  Editor Kootenay Mail:  The. B. C. Southern Railway is, asking for a further extentron of  time   to  complete   the .enterprise.      Although  this   company   lias   been    bet'oie-  tho  country, more than six   years   wiT.liout'  ���������iccomplishing its object, it   should   he  treated with the same liberality it. has  met with heretofore, and the road put  through ns far a.s the Upper Kootenay  river at least.  ' It will there   be    con-  iK'cled    north    by   steam    navigation  with Fort- .Steele, and the mines of (lr.it,  district,  and.  to   the.   south   with   tlio  Great Northern Railway at   .Jennings,  Montana', whence coiil can be taken lo  Durrrrer's  Kerry   and   Kootenay   La!**-  and by way of Spokane lo XeI*-oii  and  Trail Creek.    Tlie friends of the li. C.  r-Joudiern have already   secured   a   Dominion charter lo   build   .smith "ulorig  tlie Upper   Kootenay   r!\er,    crossing  t-he boundary,at   Toba'eco   Plains  arid  connecting with   the   (b-e-it   Northern  Railway thus giving an   nil-mil   route  from the Crow's Jjles't mines, to  places  where tlie coal    is    wanted    for   consumption both in the ."states and   Canada, .o ,     ,    ,  It is not probable that this road can  he finished the coming season, although  .some eagerly contend that it' must be  built through to Trail immediately because the smelters of Southern ' Ivuot-  Kiiay " can't do 'without " the ,coal of  Crow's ?sTest Pass. These people 'forget in the first, place-' that from . Fori  Maeleod to Trail is nearly -100 mile-,  and that the promoter's of the. 13. C.  Southern (who at'the same time are  thc owners of Uk-so coal mines) have  been ' unsuccessfully struggling for  more than six yenrs to induct) capitalists to take hold of it, neither do they  seem lo consider that to build a road  of the length of the pi-bposed one, o\er  a mountainous distrkl not-o\en yet  located by the surveyors, crossing the  Rockies,'the Ptit-cell Range.' and- tire  Selkirk .Range in its cour.se, is a  diilictilt and very expensive under-  tYiking, and likely to meet delays    and  He Struck it Rich.  o  J.'-ICnowk-s, who has a placer claim  at lhe mouth of Lardeau creek, Trout  lake, struck it. rich one day last week.

Tlm hope  thai some people have entertained  that the B.

R. for <i long teini of  yciir-i-.  Moreover, the neces-sily for building  a new road to supply West Kootenay  willi coal and,coke, is not. so urgent as  man}', seem to believe. The main line  of the C. P. ll. taps bituminous coal  fields at Canmore, 10(i miles east'of  llevrtlsloke ��������� and the Anthracite coal  mines, 1S6 miles east. The Cm more  coal is said to be a Irrst-rpialit.y coking  coal, and coke ovens will be built as  soon as the demand is suliicient to  warrant their const ruction. The Anthracite product'is a h.ud coal of good  quality for foundry use, r-nd is *a  superior steam coal. Hero we have  on the main line of tho C. V. 11. .-ill  the coal and coke needed for use in  'West rCooteuay direct ly accessible and  available on call. The .saving of  distance and cost-of transportation to  ii on works or other manufacturing es-  tablishnients at lio-iclstoke, ns compared with Trail for- instance, would  be ;it least 150 miles in favor of Revelstoke.  The distance from Calgary to Tiail  by the proposed M. C. 8outliern will  be-ICO miles; from Calg-iry to Trail  by way of lievelsloke I"-SS miles.

The Press and Public of Kootenay are  Unanimously Opposed to=it-^  li  the   provincial   government-  had  been casting about for- some   means to  niiike. itself unpopular   with   the large  and   increasing   mining   ponulaiion   it  could not have proposed anything more  calculated   to   attain   the   defiled end  than the Assessment Amendment. Act ���������  (the  text   of   which   lias' ahead}- been  published in the  M.ur,), introduced in-,  to tii'y/iegi.slatui e   by Premier Thi tier, '  providing for a,tax of two per cent, on  lire ..gross   output   of   mines.     Iir   the  picsenl slage of   mining  development  :t, scerns   almost    inci edible   that ' the  government   would   be   guiltv of srrch  an act of folly  wili do moie, lo   ictind  .iiritish t'lrltiinbia's chief industry than  anything    its    bitterest   enemy   could  devise.  '   Tho   only    excuse,   for   tin's  liiij-chievoirs and   inequitable   taxation  is a desire on tins   pari   of tile govern-^  in.int. to add lo lire provincial revenue,  but the   met hod   adopted   will   .surely  defeat this end.  The    Hill    is,   primarily    aimed    at  fCooteiiav, .-ind'(he.   people of this section  of   the   piovince   aie   thoroughly  alive to thi.s fact,     livery public   bodv  has    entered    a    protest   again.st   its  adoption..  The press are a unit against-  it.     Massmcetings in   different   town-"  in the district'have declared the public  opposition    to    it.       JJelegates   ,frotu  dili'erent   centres   have   been   sent   to  Victoria to   oppose   it,   and   petitions  have been forwarded lo lhe legislature  praying that such a   law   will   not   be  enacted.     Tf,   in tho face ' of  such unanimous   opposition,   the- government  persists in pressing tho measure it may  expect ������to    have , the   r>uiim   mining  interests   ofr the ���������- province      arrayed  ag-iinstit.     But it. is to be hoped  that  tlio unanimity displayed by those most  interested will have the desired   effect  and thai the 'government   will   devi.se  some means, other than   the   one   proposed, to raise the,   necessary   revenue  to conduct the ailairs of  the province.  The Board of. Trade  discussed   the  matter al   its, liist-   meeting .and   for-   ,  warded    a   very  strong resokfuon   to  ���������J. iM.'Xellie,'^iVP.R'   The  'resolution,  recites   thfiu. while   the'  Board   i.s    in '  sympathy with the principle, of taxing  -  mining   property     for ,  purposes     of ,  revenue it protests against the, taxing  of the'gross output of   mines.    In   its  opinion the  tax,    it   any,   should, be  levied on'the net, profit.  Thiit lire opposition to the proposed  legislation is widespread and unanimous throughout .the district is shown  by the  ''   1'HKSS Ol'lNlOXS OX TII V. ACT.  I fl  Nelson Miner: We can , hardly  recollect.-my, Bill Hint.' has met with  .such sudden and universal condemnation as tbe new Assessment Bili has  provoked in the mining district-- of  lJriti.sh Columbia. It- is.so apparent, to  anyone who knows anything al all  about il that the ptoposal-'to lax ore  on the dump i.s both unjust and unwise that people wonder .where on  earth the government got. (he idea  from. * k The bill if il lieeoiues law  will kill the mining- industry of lit it ish  Columbia as dead *as a doornail. The.  opposition is not so much again.st, .tli<e  amount of the tax/ it is more against,  the method of imputing il. ' * If  the pi evince absolutely requires more  funds Kootenay will' contribute hex  share, but she declines (o pay more  than her proportion. There is some  irony in asking her lo do so. Only a  year or- two ago she was unknown an-i  despised. The good' people of the  eoa-t cduld not. be per.su.-iilcd lo take  any nol ice of her.' Now she' has  blossomed out entirely on her own  uiei-ils and becoi.ie one of the mining  countries of the world, they ask her to  pay a'tiix of 2 pm- cent on 'net- property  -.v. bin-they only pay three-quurtor.s of  one per cent ou theirs.

I.ee i.s of'the opinion that this  would be the must , feasible , way uf  opening Ih i.s valley for -setilemenl. lu  his report, which is addressed to thu  surveyor-general, he say.s :  There is very little hind on   the  Col-  urnhia   river   until .within  about   live  miles   of   the  mouth  ol   Canoe,  river,  where w.eenleredn valley of about 1:2,000  acres of good agr iculttir.rl   land,  about  <nre-halfrof which  is  bottom   land   not  ' subject to   inundation,   good   clay   soil  .showing ten'To fifteen f������<-t iu depth'   at  rhe cm-hanks, with a gravelly sub-soil;  the remainder lying upon low  benches  1 fifty   to   seventy-live,  feet .above   (he  , river.'   These  benches   are   also   good  clay laud, no'i'ock   or  gravel   showing  ou the  Mil face.    The  surface   ol   both  bottom and   bench   land   is   very   level  a.id uniform:,small  ceda'r,   spruce  and  b.'ils.itn limber and   considerable   biish  'in the bottoms; cedar, spruce and hemlock on the benches and mountains, all  ._small  timber and   of   no   commercial  value.    The vegelalion    indicates  considerable    rainfall     throughout     I hi*  valley, and I   do   not  think   irrigation  will   be  required :   but if so  there    i*,  abundance of water for this purpose in  the creeks flowing through Ihe   valley.  I aiii informed by   dappers  who   have  wintered here Ihiit   tbe snow  is  I'mni  three to four feet in depth, and  limber  -and   bushes'   indicate   a    considerable  snowfall.-.
