All indications are that inside

to East Kootenay-as a'possible

will be-that capitalists seeking

the continent, and as it was  the
second largest producer of silver
lead last month,   with   tho   present development, it is  to  determine  .what    may    be   expected
when tho property is  thoroughly opened up.    He  further  said
that it would not bo long before
500   men   could   be   employed.
Others who  have  critically  examined, the property do not hesitate to say it is a wonderful mine.
Recent advices are to the effect
that a big strike  of

other/side of, the lake. ■".-In''regard to. this property the theory
has been advanced that, the  St.

the same lead.
There are great possibilities
for |;he mines of Moyie, and The

to'see the town, the size of Wal-
the north and south railway is

no doubt but that its construction will commence next year.
This road completed will make
the entire mining region east of
the Kootenay river easily acces-

in store for East Kootemiy and
the" man who stays with the
country will reap the harvest.

About Windermere.
'■   F.   A." Mulholland   while   in
town on Thursday ,was seen0 by
a representative - of The Prospector.'    Mr. Mulholland is enthusiastic over the  Windermere
district an-J predicts a'.great .future'for it.  ' He  says: '"I  have
travelled    through' the 'miniug
sections' of the province and do
not hesitate to say that nowhere
are there such°mineral showings
as/are found in the   Windermere j Victoria;
district? -There are fully twenty jConklin,'
claims which have from  one  to
thirty tons  of shipping'ore  on
the dump, and a number of them
much more.  The principal drawback of course is lack  of  transportation facilities, although for
a few.months in the year steatn:
lers   operate ,on   the Columbia,
but these will be  inadequate  to
handle the ore-when  the  mines
are opened up.    Within the next
year there will be great changes
ih the country, and a number of
mines  will  be developed   to   a
point    where   continuous   ship-,
ments can be relied upon.
, Mr. Mulholland has large interests in that section.    Tie returned to Windermere yesterday.

The   Opposition   claimed,   on
the division on'a, bill,   that  the
names    had    been"  called    for
record.    The speaker said   that
he had not heard the call but the
three Opposition  members  necessary arose and said  that they
had requested the  names  to" be
called.     It  was  then  that Mr.
Martin took  occasion  to'attack
the Government and to accuse
the Speaker of showing  partiality.-   An  uproaru-at  once  arose
and during the row  Mr.   Martin
was heard to declare that if the
I Speaker did ,'not show  a  proper
impartiality  he,   Martin,' would
take stops to force him ,'to do so.
Provincial Secretary Prentice
remonstrated with   Mr.   Martin,
who  at once  attacked   him   in

to make acontinual nuisance of
himself by always  interfering.'
Sharp   words   followed   aud   a
lively scene ensued which finally
however, quieted down.

a controversy with the Attorney
General over discrepancies in

The Cost of Testing- a MCiue.  .Several   inquiries   have   been  received   from  eastern   persons  regarding the   probable  cost  of  the examination of mining'properties, and  leading  brokers  report that they are constantly  in  receipt of letters, asking for information   on  this   matter.     In  many of these  case   the  writers  exhibit a  remarkable   ignorance  of what is required of  a   mining  engineer in the examination of a  mine.    One broker was asked to  employ a competent   man  at' an  expense not to exceed $.">t" io examine a placer mine in the western part of Routt county containing ne-irly 2.hod acres.    As travelling expenses would amount to  more  than   twice  that  Mini,   no  one has yet  been  found  willing  to go, and in aii examination of a  placer   property   recently   com  eluded,   an  expert   was  on   the  ground nearly six weeks   in  arriving at an,approximate conclusion   regarding   the   value   of  a  tract of I'.r.Oo acres.

Holding a Mining- Claim.  ,  The locator of a mining  claim  who fails to do the required   annual   assessment,   but   who   resumes work upon the' claim  before any other party has made a  location   upon   the. same  claim,  has been given by   tho  courts  a  quasi title in cases where another party  had  located   upon   tho  claim subsequent) the resumption  of work by the original  locator.

Less than two  years ago tlie examination   of  a  ..largo mine in this slate involved  the making of 1100 assays  at  ;i  cost of more lha'ii ll.'iOO, and the,  ' treatment of moru  than 500 ton's  Of ore.��     in addition to these ex-  'pensoa must  be  taken1 into account travelling expenses,  hotel  bills and incidentals, such as the  purchase ol necessary tools,  tlie  employment of extra labor,   etc.  Average engineers expect lo  receive as fees not lo.^s than Si!")  a day and expenses.    Tli i.s is not  extravagant, as few even at that  figure make more' than an   ordinary professional income during  the year, while many aro   fortunate   if  they-  not   the   average  wage of an'ordiiuiry bookkeeper.  Engineers of established reputu  tion make much higher charges.  There are  several   engineers  in  this state who will not look at a  mine for, loss  than  s?V,000,   and  many instances can  be cited  in  which the engineers  fee,   exclusive of expenses, wa.s a.s high a.s  $3000.    This class of'expert   engineer, as a rule, declines to  examine   anything  but  developed  mines,' or make  general  reports  covering large areas,of  mineral  territory, which include geological and   topographical' features,  water supply, engineering possibilities and matters of that kind,  which  require   exceptional   skill  and experience.     On   the  other  hand, there are in  tin--,  city   not  fewer than   im1  good   enuinoei^  who will   make   examination*  ol  small   mines   and   prospect*   for  sinO to ?C>i'''  and   expenses,   depending upon the distance   horn  Denver and  other   factor.*  mentioned.

Judge!  Hallet's  decision   has  not   been!  reversed  by   any   higher .court, j  His decision in,effect is that   the  annual, assessment work  required by, law is not for the  purpose  of keeping"alive the title  to  the  claim, but to' preveut  that   title  from collapse:  that  it  made   no  difference  whether   the   annual  assessment work in question was  done or not. so long as  the  first  locator had  asserted' his  rights  in the following year before any  at tempi had been" made  to  relocate the claim., That is. if a man  did not do the   lqquired  amount  of work up to a certain time  his  claim   lapsed:   but  if. ��� ho\vever,  ho began work on the* claim dur-  in the following year, before another location intervened, he reestablished his rights, his-location , then   being  practically   an  original location,  and  no  other  locator could claim   title  by   relating   back  any  of  which   the  first locator  had  not  taken   advantage of in lime.     The action  of the  original   locator  in  such  cases is risky and he is liable   to,  have trouble.      if he fail to perforin the   necessary  assessment  work his claim is  jumpable   under the law. and it   is, better   to  take no chances as  those   taken  in the case in question.
