FRANK COAL MINE IS ON FIRE  Burning for Twenty-four Hours���  Now  Undjr   Control���Was  Fired by Gas Explosion.  Frank, Albt., April 18.-���A fire  has been burning in the main  Lentry of the coal mine of the  Canadian-American Coal & Coke  Company at this place for the  past 21 hours and is not yet sub-  ' .dued, although ��� it is reported  under control and the hope is  expressed that it will be extinguished within a lew hours.  , It is not definitely known how  the fire started but is presumed  to have been caused by a minor  explosion of gas setting'fire to  the timbering of the tuunel. The  fire started in room 29 and had  been, burning some time when  discovered. The alarm was  given at once and that portion of  the mine was immediately closed  in an attempt to smother the  fire. ,        , ,' '    '  It was stated tonight that the  fire had burned to No." 12 man-  way, which means a distance of  several hundred feet along the  tunnel, but that the  smothering  .process was gradually making  headway aud that.all danger of  serious damage to the mine' was  cpast.  ' It appears, that the greatest  danger lies .in the as yet unsettled question  as  to whether  feet in length, extending- righ  across the valley of Coal Creek.  It will be fitted with all modern  appl.ances for screening, picking and loading the eoal''ari<rtEe  coal shipped for domestic purposes will be free from slack and  dirt.  The capacity of the new tipple  will be 4,000 tons of coal daily,  and, will cost ��200.000. The contract calls for its completion by  the 1st of July next.  , Was Big" Payday.  G. H.

Of Interest to Those Engaged in  the  Development of the  Mining Industry.  The mining companies oper  ating in the Kootenays;--B.C..  are estimated to have paid ��7,-  500,000'in dividends todate.  Southeast Kootenay has coal  enough in" sight to supply the  Dominion of Canada for generations to come.        , n  One of the greatest needs that  Southeast   Kootenay  lias   today  Mr. C. Huugerforcl Pollen was seen by a Colonist reporter  al  f ' ' '  the Driard hotel yesterday, having just arrived by way of Seattle.  In response to a request for news respecting'railway matters. Mr.  Pollen said:       �� "'  "The action of the government'in closing the session without  carrying out any measure of, assistance towards building the  Kootenay Central Railway will cause a great deal of disappointment throughout East Kootenay. Along tbe entire length' of the  route, which traverses .Golden, Windermere and Fort Steele mining divisions, timber, mineral and coal properties are being held  in expectation of early transportation being afforded. <, All in the  district have been straining their-resources to hold on to their  properties, in spite of the high taxation now in force: r with a  diminishing prospect of getting their properties on a producing  basis,   a great deal of retrenchment will have to take place.    The  L / f  company, has like the rest, patiently held .on .to its- mining and  other properties, on which many thousands of dollars have been  spent in the last few years.    The company, cannot be, blamed  for  fa j i i  not commencing construction, nor can the plea.that it was, unwill-  iug or unable to do so be put forward as the reason for the failure  the fire has worked  its   way, up is a cheap and efficient system of of  legislation   being ,put through this season.    The most distinct  the chutes   into   the   rooms   of transportation, so that industries' guarantees for immediate and continuous construction were offered  as yet undeveloped   may  in  tl a both 'at this  session' and at the last wm t ho ut'avail.    The subsidy  future   add.to  the  revenues of ��� or]gltlfa\y granted the Kootenay .Central Co.^ was allowed to   lapse  ,   broken coal  overhead.     If 1hat  ' proves  to  be the' case   it  will  >   doubtless  be some ntime before  the  fire can' be  entirely- extinguished, but those in a  position  to know express the belief  that  the   fire   has   not   reached- the  ���'gob'" and if lhis<proves true it  will mean nothing  more  serious  than a rotimbering of tho tunnel  'the distance burned.     Company  officials stated ibis evening  that  they did not believe the damage  would   be   more   than   nominal  The  worst    phase  of   the situ-  , ation appears to be that the  fire  " will  necessitate-the-closing of  the  mine  for some  time, while  re-timbering is in progress  thus  throwing the large force of men  out of work.  ��� Territorial coal mine inspector  F. B. Smith, has been notified  and is expected to arrive here  today. H. L. Frank, president  of the company has also bpen  sent for. ��    Drowned in Twin Lakes.  W. E. Cook, C.P.R. operator  at Port Steele Junction, was  drowned at Twin Lakes, one  mile east of the .1 unction. It is  supposed that he swam out to  get a duck that he had shot, and  taking cramps he was unable to  reach the shore again. When  he did. not. return for supper, his  wife notified Mr. Powers, arid a  searching  party was. sent out:  �� His clothes and gun were fom d  on the shore of the lake, and his  body was found on Sunday morning. The Order of Railway  Telegraphers made up a subscription  to  send  his  body for  -'burial'at Miirnkirk, Ont. ,Cook  was 27 years old and leave a wife  to whom be has - only been  married three months, to whom  the sympathy of human people  is extended in the deep sorrow  .   that has fallen across her path.  E. .1 Roberts, chief engineer  for the Spokane International  railroad, returned yesterday,  April 17th. from a trip over the  surveys. He said: "The work  at Coal Creek has been awarded is progressing very well and the  to 'Hey land Patterson, of Pitts- north end will be definitely lo-  burg. The new tipple will be cated in a few days. , I think the  built entirely of steel,  some 850 ifirist contracts   will   be   let next  New Tipple at Coal Creek;  The contract for the new tipple  this district. *  , The Sullivan group' of claims  is at present pushing develop  merit' work with a small, force.  The ore bins at ihe smelter, and  at the terminal of the tramway  are all filied. As soon' as the  smelter is in operation the'working' force at the mine will be  largely increased..  Fifteen-cent copper may spur  the owners of copper mines in  the St. Mary's district to increased development. The  smelting company at Marysville  has promised to put in a copper  reduction plant as soon as the  necessary amount of ore is in  sight.  It  is  rumored  tliat the North  o  Star mine will resume operations  during the coming mouth.  As noted in The Prospector  last week'mining operations in  and. about Fort Steele are becoming quite active.  Operations will soon be resumed at Bull river. Manager  G. E. Henderson has announced  that he will bo hore about May  1st. This will give employment  to about !!0 men.       > 'J  Southeast Kootenay is essentially a country of mines containing silver lead, copper and  gold. In part they always have  and still do comprise the great  natural wealth of the district.,  ' The work of preparing for beginning placer operations' on  Wild Horse creek this season is  about completed. Water was  turned into the big ditch last  w iek, and the company operating the Fisher ground has commenced mining,      '    ' ',       '  Corbin to Let Contracts.  tons of material will be required,  and  the   structure  will  be   8o0  week.    I was over the proposed  route as far as the boundary."  in 1902 by the former holders of the charter.' . The, present company ��� took up tho charter, on the'coudition that, the subsidy was  renewed^y the provincialgovernment. The government of the  day', in reply, gave written assurances tliat this would-be done.  and these assurances have been verbally renewed ever since. At  the close of last'year's session, and again during the recess, while  touring' the district, the Premier made the most encouraging  statements from the company's point of view, and tho company  felt justified in expending'several thousand dollars more than was  obligatory under its charter in surveys, which have just been com.-  pleted, between lilko and Golden,'so as to be in readiness for immediate construction. �� . .  "At an early date in'the session, when tho prospect of railway  legislation began to look gloomy, I urged that the Dominion government, in conjunction with such companies as have Dominion  charters and subsidies likely to be jeopardized.-for a general  measure granting extensions to all such companies until the province could decide upon a railway policy. This suggestion was  unheeded, arid this company���aud, I suppose others���may be compelled, to commence construction without proper justification or  security for its finances. Naturally, only such work as is compulsory under the charter will be done by us ^  "The difficulties in the^way of companies wishing to operate  in British Columbia at present are so great'that one cannot be surprised at the lack of capital coming from Europe���that is, if what  has occurred to us is at all characteristic.  "With regard to the interests of the Canadian Pacific Railway-  in the Kootenay Central, a conditional arrangement, made to  regulate traffic, gives the Canadian Pacific the opportunity to  assist in the construction under certaiu conditions. This arrange-  ment was not of a nature to require'the consent of the Lieut.-Governor, , nor , did it secure the building of the railway. It .was licit  understood that the C.P.R. would make proposals regarding tlie  building over that route to the provincial government, as they are  reported to have done in connection with some general scheme.  In such a case, this company offered to withdraw all its demands,  provided a satisfactory guarantee to construct the line was given  by the C.P.R either to this company or the government, but their  proposals were rejected. Whether they were.more favorable than  those offered by us I greatly doiibt.  "With regard to the extra taxation required to meet our subsidy  I should say that British Columbia is like a,man with a large farm  who hesitates to go to the expense of a plough to til J. ...the soil. The  assistance we are asking is the'.��5,000 in throe per cent, stock,  which was formerly granted, to the company, and except for a,  technicality,1 is still legally due to it. What, with the expenditure  of from three to'four million dollars required fo build the road,  the contribution from -he province would bo more than met by tho  increased revenue from'timber., mineral and coal. The timber reserves are large and the mines low grade: neither can be profitable without a railway.  "Everyone grudges the high taxation at present,- when there is  no prospect of either working their properties or of selling them.  With a larger population, and when the country is productive, an  infinitely larger revenue could be drawn without it being felt."  Koolenay silver-load miners  will soon he up againsi the real  thing, a British Columbia load  trust.  The Canadian Smelting,Works  at Trail, B.C., practically con-  trolls the Caimdian load market.  Il uots the top price of the  Canadian market. The Hall  Mines' smelter at Nelson, is to-,  day smelting more lead than is  the Trail smelter, but its products' is all handled by the  Canadian Smelting Works.'  All this has been very, nice iu  the past, for both the smelters  and their allied co-partner the  Canadian Pacific Railway company, and the load miners of  Kootenay have been forced to  dance to lhe music, smelting  charges':-' of this triple headed  combine.    ,  But dangei to the plans of the  combine is in sight. The red  glare of tho "lead stacks of the  MarysvilJe smelter will soon be  seen, and tho'Marysville smelter  with a capacity, equal to that- of  the Nelson or Trail smeller, will  soon ''butt." into this combine1 iu  a very rude manner. The new  smelter at Marysville -will have  a. big advantage over, its competitors, in having an unlimited  supply of oi'e from ils own mines  and will produce at least" one-  third' of the lead production of  tho Kootenay. Heroin lies the  danger lo the present combine,  and efforts arc now being made  to bring1"info the combine the  Marysville - out lit. and there  seems' to be not Che least'doubt  but' ���success, will'- crown their  efforts. f The "Italian hand of the  C.P.R., i1" the. pointer which,will  direct, the movement's and regulate the price's of the British Coin mbia load trust.  SILVER LEAD .ORE  Sullivan Company Will Bring the  Production up to 24,000 Tons  of Lead  Annually.  To Establish Steel Industry,  There is a movement, on the  Pacilicjioast J'or the establishment of a stool mailing industry,  says tho Nelson Tribune. The  first stop has boon tho formation  of a syndicate under tho title of  the Pacific Stool Co , with headquarters at Seattle, and a subscribed capital of ��500.000. A  furnace is to, be erected this  season and the smelling of iron  ores will be in progress^ before  the end of IijOo. The importance  of this to British Columbia, lies  in tho fact that we have the only-  pure high grade Bessemer ore  that has 5ret been discovered in  the west. J n the states of Washington and Oregon arc large  bodies of low grade hematite,  magnetite, and Unionite. all containing high percentages of  silica and sulphur, and some of  them too high a percentage of  phosphorus to make pig except  by the basic process. We have  in.the Koo.tenays extensive deposits" of the best hematite', yet  fouud oh- the continent with the  maximum percentage of metallic  iron, the .'minimum of sulphur  and phosphorus in negligible  quantities. This ore will bo required by any Steel lnaking'plant  established with in ��()'('.). to lOtO.  miles of its occurrence. , ��� Without,  it neither a, high gi-atio foundry  pig nor a Bessemer steel can be  made. .The now railway connections; being made between the  Koolenay s'and the Coast by way  of Spokane will ensure cheap  transportation, and if Canadian  capita.l'doos not- build up flie in  dustry on -ihis side. Canadian  ore will do it across llie line.  ���Fishing lias been good   in   the  vicinity   of" Steele .Tor   tlie'past-  two weeks,. an;  baskets ha ye bei  lown.  ~,evei'!ii  u   brousrht  irood  into  From the Nelr-on Tribune.  "Trail and Moyie,'' said G. O.  Buchanan, the disperser of , the  government lead, bounty, today  in an interview, "have been^so2  far ther bright ' and bustling  places on my route, but now a  third town is going to rank with  them as a locality where there  is plenty of work going, and  where the tradesman is not  starved. , This_placo_is Marys^-'  ville. ���  /'Starting from Cranbrook on  the main line of the Crow's Nest  branch  of  the Canadian Pacific,  a  branch   line   runs   across, the  prairie   country,   following the  St.   Mary's  river  to  the foot of  those   mountains  lying east "of  Kootenay  lake.     Here0are situated   the   Sullivan    aiid   North  Star   mines      Five  miles below  this' point   is    the "'Marysville  .smelter,   which *is   now   being  erected,  and  which   will be one  of the most up'td-date plants���in  the country.     It will have two  stacks of a capacity of ,100 tons  each of lead ores daily.     One of  these stacks is practically ready,  and  about   a   month hence  the"'  smelter   will   be   reducing   100 -  tons'daily.    A Spokane man, W.  G.   Smith,   is  in charge  of the  mjne'and smelter,   the company  being the Sullivan , Group  Mining Company.    In charge of the  smelter is Superintendent F. D.  Weeks.-'    The  roasting' process  to be - used  is  fhe  Huntington-  Iiiberlein. and that is now being  installed    under     the. ��� personal  direction of Engineer  Hiberlein,  tho  inventor.    .Fluxes  and dry  ores are being obtained from the  Republic   camp and   from   the  Hunter V. mine near Ymir. The  output of the smelter   when  the  two stacks  are  running will be  about, 30 tons of load   daily,   and  the  smelter  will .probably take  care of over �� 100,000 of  tho lead  bounty yearly.    With a hundred  men   employed  at tlie mine, not  counting the North Star, and 130  men  employed at  the smelter,  things' will   be  humming in the '  St. Mary's country, and  indeed,  right  now   there  is an influx of  people.    The valley is also  well  suited   to  ranching, being ' open  prairie and in places fine timber.  ���'The Trail smelter is  looking  after  about  8,000  tons of   lead ���  yearly,    and    the    Hall   mines  smelter is doing rather  more,"  replied   Mr.   Buchanan    in   re-   .  spouse  to  a  query.      "Hence if  the  Marysville smelter does as  well as I expect there will be an  output of at least 24,000 tons  of  home-smelted lead yearly.  "Yes,   that is  more  than the  demand.    The Canadian demand  is about 8,000 tons, yearly for pig  lead,   about  7,000, tons   more in  the form of paints-.     Up till now  the   Canadian   market   has   not  supplied the demand for  paints,   .  as the paints have been imported  This  will  be,   changed., by   the  erection this year of.the big corroding works' at Montreal.   That,  will   bring  up  the Canadian demand  -.to. about  15,000  tons annually.    In addition to this there  i.s another market1 in   the  Orient,  into which Canada has been permitted to cut, principally I fancy  through   the   exertions   of   the  Trail .smelter. :������   That,   howevor,  is .probably tiotniuch larger than  3,000 to I,OUO tons annually.  .   "Thi.s increase of the. lead output is largely due to   the  action  of   the  lead   bounty.

Continued from I'age 1.  doubtless  be  devised, of dealing  with   Llie   tfroat.   p'-oblom  facing  tlie production of lend in Canada,  , which is that oi' a market.      The  St. Eugene und the Sullivan look  as  if they   were going to be the  large producers, but the  Slocan  properties will have their  share  of the increased prosperity,   because   of   their -zinc   products,  for  which' they   are    now   beginning to,find a  market.     The  Slocan  lead  ores  arc  being replaced in many places with  zinc  at  depth,   and   tho'treatment of  that zinc'is one 61 the chief parts  of the problem before mine owners.     Just as  soon   as  George  Alexander at Kaslo,  for  the  instance in"poiut, will,have erected  his zinc plant this   summer,   the  1   Ruth,   Antoihe  and   Jackson,���  .1  understand,   will   all   be started  up.     And su ii goes through the  Slocan generally.  ,  Oi-e   in   that  camp   is   often   in   small ledges.'  and   ihe   lead   eoi.U'iii.-  iiia,\  not  cut   much   tiguiv,   but   in.   theso  small'ledges there '���:��  oito; l.u'<_'-  profits, because it is   high iiraflo  ore, running 200 and ',',0,o   ounce.--1  to the ton,' as has been found   on ���  the Reco and others. ' j  "The  question   that  is  "raised againsf'lhe present   juncture," coutinui d   Mr   Hiiciinnan  ��� " that      of       the     ���  marketing  of ,���  the-     ores,       is       histori  cal.     In   the  first   place, we all  wanted  a  duty   on  lead such as  that iu force in the United States  The agreement was made by the  smelters  to  share   the   benefits  with the miners,by giving  them  60  per cent, of  the  duty   paid,  and  gave  them   the  bounty instead.   A bargain was then made  ' that the bounty which is paid to  , the    mine    owners    should   be  shared by the smelters, the latter  to get 40 per cent, by an equivalent advance  in smelting'rates.  This was in lieu of the i?5 bounty  on refining, which was rescinded  - on the granting of the bounty ron  lead direct lo the producer,   and  in consideration of the statement  that the smelters were charging  only  Sio  per  ton for the reduction  of lead   ores,  a sum wliich  th6y   claimed    was, inadequate.  Ac bargain,    however,   has   not  been carried-out.   The treatment  charges     have     not    been    in  creased.  "Yes, there is an additional  charge in the shape of a ��20 a  ton cut below Lou don'prices. In  a Go per cent, load ore this would  run to &1S per ton. If the ore  ouly ran to 30 per cent, lead���  and many of the Slocan ores  drop bel6w that figure���the  charge would be $0 per ton.  "This $20 charge is made for  the cost of refining and of  marketing the ores in London.  It is not. hiizh. and in fact, the  fi��rui"<'�� I h-ive M-i-n produced by  the smeller iiioii til conventions  .���i,nd meeiir!:s for'years past���-  figures that have b-'en unconlra-  dict.ed b.v mine owners fiiihlinir  their own batl'es- -show tha.t tho  difficult   oi   access,   i^   worth an  effort to get.  "But,    as    the    figures   have  shown, there is a market, or will  be shortly, for about 18,000,tons  of lead annually in Canada.   The  Sullivan   smelter  will brinir the  output up to 21,000 tons or more,  and   there   is   the  crux  of   the  difficulty.    T have heard it stated  iha.t onr smellers may   bull   into  the' United   Suites   market- and  pay the duty.     But,there is also  the  leud   trust    to    consider���a  trust tliat  is said to have about  closed   every   avenue    to    that  market,       There    is   also   the  market to the Orient.     To  gain  an increased share of that  will  cause a hard tight.     The bounty  has  three  years  to'run, and in  the  meantime  the smelters and  mine owners   may  think  out a  way for themselves.  ����� >;  .1.   ���*���  v  ORT  LANDS AND WORKS.
