We understand that an Eastern syndicate have taken a bond  on the Doherty group of claims,  which are situated on the west  bank of Wild Horse tcreck, overlooking the old placer ground  which wa.s worked iu the early  sixties.  The group comprises four full  claims, the principal" oim being  the Doherty. on which a large  amount of development has been  done. An incline tunnel is down  lOn feet,, with a cross-cut of ten  feet, all in solid ore; other work  has been done on the group,  which would bring'the lotal development to about L'iiO feet of  tunneling".  ��� .The ore is a free-milling gold  quartz, and there is without  doubt a vast body, carrying  values from &J 0 to &>0 per ton,  the values improving as depth is  obtained. One remarkable feature in connection with this  property is that all tho work has  been done, by-the owner, Colonel  George" Doherty, with, his own  hands; and without outside help  of any kind/ The Doherty group  is easy of access," and so situated  as to render development work,  comparatively easy, and allow it  to be done very economically.  ,  While1 we are not at liberty to  announce the consideration to be  paid for the group, we may state  that a good property has been  secured at a fair price." A'  moderate, cash payment has been  made, and ^provision made for  regular quarterly .payments dur-'  ing,.sthe existence of, the bond.,  The payments though not large,  will be sufficient to enable the  Coloneh to take life easier, and  visit the outer-world when so inclined.   , ;  The parties undertake fo do a  fair amount, "of work", and propose to continue driving the  tunnel, cross-cutting' at regular  intervals to determine the exact  width of .the vein, which ��� the  Colonel has not.been able to do. ,  . The parties interested in this  deal were brought .together by  Mr. Henry Kershaw, who is' also  in communication with several  other parties who are expected  to become, inteiested ..in proper-.  ties in South East Kootenay.  Minister Loomis,   who  has just  ai'i'ived here from Venezuela,   is.  Very reticenl as to his  experiences in Venezuela.  Although Ihis fact is fairly  well disguised at the state department/it is known now that  Minister Loomis was called home,  c  to prevent an open rupture between him -and the Venezuelan  officials.  Tho attitude of this government isr that Venezuela must  either give guarantees of secu r-  ity and respect for 'Americau  officials and citizens in that re-,  public, or they will bo enforced  by the United States.

'The  panorama   of   a  new industrial era is about to be  spread before us, giving  an  opportunity to measure the results  so  far  accomplished and to estimate 'the   benefits    that   will  accrue from the construction of  the  Kootenay Central Railway.  In doing so it is our aim to guard  against the,<prejudice of self-interest or the peculiar  predelec-  tions and wishes of communities  created by' the railway corpor  ation which parted the way east  and  west  through   this 'district  bringing prominently��into . view  .ephemeral and artificial  activity  as  a  means "of1 revenue. u That  economic maxim which measures  the prosperity  of a people .by  the   environing   resources   and  their ability to ' usefully  employ  them, has received a marked exemplification in   the  relation  of  Fort Steele, and other towns  on  the line of the proposed   Kootenay Central Railway.

It is momentous not vital   to   us.  and yet we do not under estimate  its value in   the  rapid  development of  the   vast   mineral   re  sources of the Fort  Steele  Mining Division,  We shall hail with equal  pleasure the advent of the Crawford Bay and Fort Steele Railway. It will be another tremendous lever in the potentious  uplifting of the mineral resources of that portion of the district through which it will  traverse. We welcome these  railways with all the enthusiasm  which a true knowledge of our  proud position and unrivalled  resources should, warrant.

Buttrick"  gave  to   the-city   of Waltham,  Mass!   a -free   gift  of   $60,000,  which  went   into effect'on   his  death, October Sth,   1894.     The  gift has never been  claimed,   on  account of a general kick among  llie    citizens'" of   the   pCity   of  Watches'' as to where the library  building should bo'crccted.      As  Buttrick lived on tlie north   side'  ot Charles River, the  people of  that .side have a claim that  cannot be ignored.    The good ; poo  pic  of   Waltham , wore   highly  pleased  with   Ihe gil'l,   but the  city   is   divided   against   itself.
