[ mention- a single name in connection with the affair. We
stated that the Old Abe was
jumped, also the grounds for
said 'jumping, and quoted the
law as provided by the statutes
in such case. If Mr. McKeeman
did jump the Old Abe, and which
he acknowledges that he did, in
the Outcrop article, he simply
accuses himself.
The true  facts  in the matter
are as follows.      "Mr.   McKee-
, man knowingly jumped the  Old
Abe.    Upon his arrival   at   Port
Steele    from    Windermere. ,he
looked  up  the  records    at   the
government office and found that
the work was not recorded.   The
-,-. work was done, and  done  while
he  was foreman   at   the   wiine,
•Why did he, a.s a, stockholder not
record the work'!   he  knew  the
work   was  done.      He, met  the
attorney -of   the   company,   why
did   he not  tell    him   that   the
record was not made.     M r.   McKeeman at one   time   held   i'.lVOO
shares of  Old   Abe  stock, sold
1,500,   and   now  holds 1,000.    If
he  wished   to   protect  himself,
why  dobs  he   not   record   work

The Fort Steele Mining Division of -Soutii East; Kootenay  comprises lhe drainage urea of  the upper Kootenay river and  its tributaries .south of Finley  creelc. it is about SO miles in  length and 80 ir;"<js wide, and  has a'total area,'of "bot\veeiP(3,-l00  and 7,000 square miles. If has  an area ' larger than some  empires, it is a fount ry of'vasl  ir.ineral resources,' over 15000  mining locations have been recorded, and a number of dividend  paying mines are located iu Ibis  district. ���  The   most  pressing  necessity  at the present time, is a,  system  of.      advertising       that  ,    will  0  thoroughly   adverb,   ,,   the   vast  mineral resources ol the district.  "As a   promoter  of  legitimate  mining ' throughout    Hast    and  West Kootenay Mr.' Andrew   F.  Rosenberger   has  been signally  successful.    ,  This    gentleman,  highly     esteemed     in     mining  circles   because of  his  straight  forward   method of doing lousiness, and the vigor  and   energy  with   which   he   prosecutes   the  work of his* clients,   making  an  honest'   representation   of  facts  whieli governs all his operations  hY bringing  the  prospector  and  mine   "* owner    in��    touch   with  capital.   .Thai, tho .investor,   the  mi no owner, and ;tll   parties  interested   may   safely  rely   upon  ���the   statements    made   by   Mr.  Rosenberger.      ' <- "  iVIr.Rosenbergcr,jn fhe   interest of the mining industry of the  Kootenays,   has   opened    -'Tins  Pkospkctok's   Exchaxuk, V   in  .Nelson.   o Si nee  the  opening   of  the Exchange, Mr. Rosenberger  has been very successful'in   thi.s  ' n=s\v departure of mine 'advertising. ' ���   ��� _  -,   The  prime  object of the Exchange is to bring  fhe  prospector  and   mine  owner   in    direct  touch   with'', the  buyer.     To accomplish this end the  Exchange  'has beenjidvertising extensively  in   tho   mining  country,   with a  view of awakening the  prospector and   mine   owner to his own  best interests.     If you  have a  reasonably   good   prospect,   all  you  have  to  do  is to write the  "Exchange" giving a brief description of your property,   naming price,   terms etc,���samples  of your ore should also   be  sent  Avith your report.���Tt is  not expected that you send- an  expert  report, but just a letter  written  * by  yourself   stating  what   you  have to -oiler.     After receiving  your   report   at   the   Exchange  your property   will  be listed in  the   weekly   report -which   is issued   by   the  Exchange,    which  will   be   found  on   tile1 at   The  Phospkutou oflieo. <  ' One of the main objects of the  ''Exchange" is,to get  people  to  buying mines, and get thcniiihto  legitimate"-mining.     We  a,re  informed by Mr. Rosenberger that  he   has   many  applications from  tlie   east   tor   mines  which he is  unable lo supply. The Exchange  has a, line exhibit of 13 ri fish   Columbia oresj  and  desires   lo  secure  a  good   exhibit,  from each  mining district.  The Exchange is visited by all  fhe Eastern people who visit  Nelson and to have a complete  display of ore from a district is  a good advertisement for that  district.  Mr. Rosenberger offers to exhibit ore from any of the camps  free of charge, and is desirous of  securing a good exhibit from  this camp. We would suggesl  that we go about it at once and  make a large collection of ore  from this' camp and forward it  to the Exchange.
