The ptoady output, of silvi  lead ore from the mines of Moy  and in the vicinity of Kimberley  is now beginning to attract the  attention of .the mining world,  and it is safe to.assume.thai, before winter sets in there will be  more attention given to East  Kootenay than-at any time since  the early gold excitement. Last  month the St. Eugene Consolidated was the second largest producer of silver-lead ore on the  American Continent. When  production from a mine so little  Itnown among mining" men,  reaches such proportions mine  investors naturally inquire  where is East Kootenay if there  are properties developed sufficiently to produce such an  amount of ore why there must  be others equally productive,  the result is that- mining men  will visit the country to see what  there is here.  At the North. Star Mine 100  tons of ore is going out- daily as  steadily as clockwork, while the  Sullivan is sending out 25 tons,  which amount will shortly be  increased to fiO or 75 tons. The  production of the North Star  could be easily doubled.  All of these figures are significant and are the best advertisement a country can receive: It  is an object lesson which attracts  investors and  makes a country  known-   -  ���  - :  Mining Motea.

The   following   from    "Brad  street's" has a peculiar  interest  for every resident of'British Columbia..! and rwill  be  read1 with  much satisfaction, from such an  authority it has an"added  value:  "Official  statistics  show  that  the total mineral  output   bf  the  province of British Columbia for  the year 1S90 amounted to  $12,-  3SU!,131,   as   against  ��10;090,861  for 189H, an increase  of  81,480,-  270, or 13 2-U per conl. This would  have    been, largely    increased  but for the shutting down of several mines, owing to-the passage  of a law prohibiting miners from  working over eight hours.    The  coal mines of the  province  during' 1H99   turned   out   I.:J00.;J2-I  tons of coal and   34,201   tons  of  coke,  an  increase over   1S9N of  I79,4n5l tons of coal   and   a   decrease of 700 tons of coke.     The  total value of  coal   produced  in  the   province   during   1S5I5I  was  $3,918,972.      The   gold   production   for    lQi)9,    including    both  placer and  lode  gold   amounted  to *4,202,47;i.    The yield of placer    gold   was   $1,341,90(1.    over  double that of  1S98.   when the  yield was $043,340.      The   large  increase was due to   the  discov  cries in the  Atlin  lake  district,  which   yielded $800,000 in gold..  The    output   of   gold   obtained  from  lode  mining  in   1899  was'  $2,807,073,    au     increase    over  185)8 of  $000,300/     The  amount  of copper produced in the  province during  1899  was   7,722,091  pounds, an increase over 1898. of  only six per cent.

Within   Nine   Miles of Pekin.���Emperor and Empress-Dowager  Alarmed.  Washington, Aug. 1-1.���General Chaffee's dispatch of three  words was received late this  afternoon and sent a thrill of exultation throughout official quarters. The dispatch read as follows:���-'Chefoo, Aug.,. 10.���Arrived at liu Si Wu ' yesterday,  CHAFFEE".  I  London. Aug. N.���The Shanghai correspondent of" the Dailv  Express, wiring yesterday .says:  ������Tiro Allies at noon yesterday  were within twenty miles of fe-  ,   kin." .      ,  Once more the press of England remarks upon the ability of  the American government to secure news ahead of   the   rest  of  -   ihe world.  i r  "It is fo (Jiiiieral Chalfee" says  the Daily News, '"that we are,  again indebted for news from  the front. Not a single dispatch  from Sir Alfred Gassele has thus  far been issued from the war  oftico."  Washington, Aug-   I-I.���Since  the battle  of Yang  Tsung,   the  advance to Ho Si  WtiT was  accomplished in three days, a distance of eighteen miles, this was  four days ago, and at  the  same  rate of j)rogress, the allied forces  are within  striking  distance  of  Pekin, nine miles.  ���    Berlin,    Aug.    14.���The 'Em-  press-Dowager'had declared her  intention to leave Pekin before  the' all.ed army  reaches  Pekin.  The Chinese minister here  telegraphed  to  both   the   empress-  dowager  and  the emperor   not  to leave Pekin but quietly await  the arrival  of the international  forces.  Vancouver, Wash., Aug. 14.���  Government pack trains number  4 and 5 left today for Seattle  for service in China. Each;train  is composed of fifty ��iules and  fifteen -horses,' and the, usual  number of packers, hostlers unci  ' cooks.      ' �� , ,'     '  i ^ i  Chinese reports are,being distributed far and wide in' the  southern provinces of .alleged  .successes in the north..  ' ,,  The Chinese are trying' to engage a foreign electrician to lay  mines  in', the   entrance 'to- the  ' river. ,  New York, ' Aug. 14.���The  general, advance of the allied  troops in the held at Tai Tsung,  began this (Wednesday) morn-,  ing. The orderls"to rush to Pekin with no rest.  p-"ten 1 ions towns  cannot  boast  of .-,uch accommodations  as   can  be found at the Noith Star,   the  table is well supplied, the rooms  are commodious, and the  house  is lighted with  gas  throughout,  and    in    its    appointments   the  house reminds one of a  summer  resort hotel: it  is  a surprise to  the traveller to find such a well-'  kept   house   in   the   mountains.  The   other ��� hotels are  all   well  managed and apparently doing a  good business.  There are several business  houses well stocked with goods,  a drug and news store, and an  excellent livery stable.  That Kimberley is to forgo  ahead, no one seems lo doubt:  th�� future np Kiruberl<'-'V !i��s in  the l.ict. that, ij-.oso1 who have  invested there bob' ve it will lie  second to no town in Ea.-,t Kootenay. it is"growing rapidly, .-ov-  erai families have moved in during" the past few week's, and a  number of pretty houses have  been constructed recently:,, in  fact the town has every appearance of permanency, and no one  is brave enough to say aught  that is not favorable.  The North Star mine is only  throe miles irom the town'by the  wagon roa'd. The Sullivan, two  and a half mile's.   ;.'       ' ��  Other "mining j properties in  that vicinity show a' greater , or  less amount of development, and  will no doubt in time add to the  material prosperity ol' Kimberley. ;  The town is now connected by  a railway with the outskle world,  and'the effect that the railway  had upon the town was startling,  property advanced rapidly, and*  the population was largely increased.     The  mines  began  to  m Fort Steele  D  Cranbrook  ��������  ss  "ft.  fi "5**, n  [Retail  DEALERS  IN  /*r��  #  *��  '^  %��  &'  erai     Merchant  Most Complete Stock In East Kootenav  g GROCERIES  '   CROCKERY  MENS   FURNISHINGS.^-  *  -M  X  s  *  GLASSWARE  BOOTS   and   SHOES  Giant   Powder  Fuse   and   Caps  ship 'ore, lL,r> tons :going out  daily, the pay-roll of the' mines  was increased, machinery for  the economical extraction of ore  was installed, all of which added  materially to the prosperity of  the town.  ' More might be written of .the  different mining properties i.n  the vicinity of Kimberley, but  that will be reserved for some  future issue of T.m-: Prospector,. '   r'.'"'  I  KIMBERLEY.  The Gem of the Mountains.  There is'every reason lo believe that Kimberley is destined  to become one of the prosperous  towns of South Bast Kootenay.  It is near two of the big product  ing mines, the North Star and  Sullivan, in fact there is 110 other  lownsite available near 'these  properties, and therefore commands^ position which no other  town can hope to rival. 11, has  been styled by an enthusiastic  citizen, as the Leadville of ICasl  Kooleiiii^y, and it certainly occupies a similar position lo thai  great mining city.  Kimberley is only two years old  and is a lusty   infant   out   of   its  swaddling  clothes,   and   is   now  putting on metropolitan airs.    It  is beautifully   located   on   .Mark  creek,   about  six  miles above its  continence with  the.  St.   Mary's  river,it is .such a location as is not  frequently   found   in   mountain  towns, the  ground   is  comparatively level,   and   on  Ihe  north  side of the creek rises gradually,  to the  sui rounding   hills.     The  owners of the lownsite made   no  mistake when they took:,,11 p   tlie  land'.-   The.town boasts of several excellent hotels, the principal  being tlie North .Star; which'',,is  presided over by-that " prince'of  good follows" Harry'Drew;.��� well-  known in the  North   West,   and.  in East Kootenay.'     Many .more  Treat Boers as Banditti.  "For a moment the Chinese  question is eclipsed in public in:  terest by the report of the Pretoria conspiracy to murder British officer .'and to kidnap. Lord  Roberts. This is the talk of the  clubs where the correctness of  the report is'not doubted, though  some cautious persons believe  that the ploii may turn out. a  smaller affair'than it seemed, at  first sight. The revelation will  at any rate strengthen the hands  of those who have been loudly  exclaiming for weeks past that  Lord .Roberts has been absurdly  moderate in hit, methods and  that there must be an end of misplaced leniency, which has only  01 icon raged the Boors to prolong  Their resistance after all chance  of successfully opposing the  British advance in thocficld is at  an'end.  They are in favor  of' treating  the Boers now in arms as   mere  banditti instead of soldiers,  and  they argue thai the  pacification  of the country will be indefinitely postponed unless: drastic examples aroproinptly made. They  say,that snipers,  train wreckers  and burghers,   after talcing  the  oath   of   allegiance,   should 'be  promptly  shot  and   their   properly   confiscated.      The   fact   is  that lOnglisliineii   are   beginning  to lose their temper over the   irritating delay of   the   I lour  war  and   Lord   Roberts,   if  his  own  prudence   and   sense of justice  would   permit,    might   adopt   a,  rigorous   policy    of    repression  without   being    condemned    by  public opinion at home.
