The .Sullivan  Group of" Mines, which .have  been closed do'wii for several  years, has resumed 'operations  and a force of thirty meu are  now employed in taking out  ore.

The, .lower bins, at, the  junction of the railway and tramway, are tilled with ore, and the  first shipment -of ore to the  smelter will be sent out today.  A large coal and coke supply  has been received at. Marysviile,  and a trial run of one or more of  the big lead stacks will be made  as soon as a sufficient amount of  ore has been received at the  smelter.

The East-  ern demand for British Columbia was very Ifix'during the last,  half of 1901,, but the prospects  are very bright, for this year.  The local trade was "all that  could be expected during the past  year,, and prices were such as  warranted a reasonable profit. It-  is expected that in the Kootenay  valley, owing to the construction  of the Kootenay Central railway  and building operations, the  demand '"' '  will be     ' quite  heavy        this,       year, and  much heavy construction is  promised in the vicinity of Port  Steele and Bull river, and,along  the line of the Kootenay Central.  The output for the year 1905  in Southeast Kootenay- is estimated at 70.000,000 feet divided  among the following milling  companies:  Crow's Nest Lumber Co 10,000.000  Kafet Kootenay  Elk Kivcr , ' ���'  King .

The future of Southeast Ivoo  touay lies in the fullest development of the mineral resources  of the-district, also the agricultural, cattle, raising and hnnbei  industries. With the exploitation of the "silver-lead, cbppei.  gold am! placer mines, the immense coal fields in the CrowV  Nesl Pass operated to their fullest extent, tlie construction of  the Kootenay Central Railway,  the establishment of local smelters and refineries, the Fort  Steele mining division will take  rank as a mineral region "of vast  importance.

C,  FEBRUARY  11. 1905.  @%e $fvo&pZJctxn:.  SATURDAY,  I'A'Ai.   11. 190.L  Flathead Wagon Road.  Continued from 1'aoe 1.  The'valley ol Miis cr^ek is   wide  and levt'l aud ascends very gradually so thai, ihe cost  of ��radiiifr  this   portion   will   he   vt'ry li��'hl  ��� but the clearing will be more ex-'  pensive than before as it is  covered with moderately large  spruce limber.     We cross in this  -.   portiou of the road  J. Gregory's,  lot 699H, A. W. Vo well's lot 0990  , H., Watt's lot 0994, S. L. Gal-  brail h's lot 0992. G. Douglas' lot  00WA, and R. L.- T.'GalbraiuYs  lot 15991, passing close ���to J. D.  Gordon's lot. U9flf>, M. Langley's  lot 0997 and P. Cameron's lot  0sj99. We then descend this  tributary to its mouth on .the  Flathead ftiver (elevation 5000  feet) a distil nee of less than five  miles passing through a wide  valley' 'with gradual and even  descent, the grading ��� of* which  will be very nominal. The<clear-  ing also will be very light passing as it does through small jack  . pine  and   willow.      En   this dis-  ��� lance we cross J. B'. Langley's  lot-0989. W. J: Langley's lot'69^0  G. M. Judd's lot 0n09',and.T.  Biigg's lot 0802 besides several-  other licenses which have not  ���yet been surveyed., All these  claims mentioned have line coal  showings on them and it is the  intention ol the owners to develop them next, season. ���We  have now travelled a distance of  2(> miles "H/om Crow's Nest  station and reached the Flathead  river in the center oi"the Flathead coal and oil district from  which point any , portion of the  said district. , can be reached  easily. A brief comparison of  the .features of the two routes  show a strong preponderance in  favor pf thc Crow's Nest." while  in   the case of the Fernie route,  . 'Hie climb to ihe summit' is' 8840  feci, and that of;the Crow's Nest  is l37u feet, makingLa difference  of almost 2000 feet.    The height  ' of the summit in the former case  is 800 feet higher than the latter  which will make quite a difference in the depth ofJ,snow ou the  sleigh road for winter traffic besides  causing   the   road   to   be  ��� virtually closed up for a longer  period in the spring and fall.  The maximum grade ou0 the  former is 10 per cent, on the  latter not over 7 per cent. The  cost of building the Crow's Nest  road will not exceed 87000 which  is about half that of  the  Fernie  ,road. Work on the Crow's Nest  road can be commenced earlier  in 1 he spring and with the same  force of men can be ready for  use in -half the time. For VA  miles Ihe Crow's Nest route' will  pass through a country open to  prospecting and development  while the Fernie route will pass  through none.  1 therefore hope that, the government before deciding on any  one route will examine each,  both from the point of view of  economy, of expense and grades  and their respective values to  the prospectors and licensees of  this portion of British Columbia,  ��� ' Thanking you in aiiticipatiou  for the use of your valuable  space.
