At Ilic Empire mine on Sand  creek work i.s being steadily  pushed with satisfactory results.  The railway company is fully  alive to the Importance of this  miction. Mr. Macleod, C. E.,  .has personally inspected the  mines in that vicinity, and as a  result a siding;.will be put in at  iji-anston to facilitate shipments.  There are three or four cars oi  ore now ou the dump ready for  shipment.    "   vantages which a permanent exhibit of ores mean for the lown.  Such an exhibit has been frequently .suggested for Fort  Steele, but for some reason the  Board of Trade does not seem to  take much interest in a matter  of such manifest importance.  Nothing will so well advertise a  town so well as an exhibit, of the  resources of the surrounding  country. It i.s to be hoped that  someone will take the matter  in  MINING DEVELOPMENT.  hand and make a collection I'or  permanent exhibit.  AT TOBACCO PLAINS.  Mining- Activity in That Section.  International Boundary Not Defined.  |  At the Golden Five.  i' T. D. Thomas came in town on  Thursday from "the Golden Five  group.    He came down to meet  ''  Mrs.   Thomas  who   arrived   on  Wednesday.    Mr.   Thomas  says  fhe work at the Golden   Five   is  progressing rapidly.    So far tho  work has been/confined  mostly  ^ to the surface,' but  now* cvory-  \   thing is in readiness lo  run   the  ���'    Jf>0 foot tunnel to1 tap the  ledge.  The, work will  be  continued  all  winter. -_ ,  T>*   Prospective Sale of the Bear  Group.  h      'Negotiations are now pending  for the sale of the Bear group of  mines to  an  English* syndicate  represented by a  Golden  man.  The Bear group  is, located on  Bugaboo '   creelc    about    thirty  ���mile's     north    of    "Windermere.  There i.s an immense showing of  copper ore on the' property, four  J'eet in a ledge twenty feet wide.  Recent assays gave  a   value  o'f  '%i2'.1.44 per ton in copper.  The property'is admirably'situated, being.low down and^only  ten miles from the Columbia river.* aud can be reached at any  time of the year. The owners  are'Robert iMcKeeman and D.  S tad lander.  Tho ledge on the group can be  IA,'A traced for four iniles, and already  '/'')' there are eight claims located on  y'' the ledge.  ��  I'  Iii,  ty*  li  , The Montana Claini.  Ii. A. Olson, who has had ~a  contract for work on the Montana claim on Tracy creek, came  down from lhe properly, a few  days ago, having completed contract. . He says the shaft is now  down 84 feel, and a crosscut from  the bottom of the shaft has been  run for twenty feet. The foot-  wall was encountered after run;  ning through a four-foot vein.  ������'.Mr. Olson will probably receive a contract lo continue the  work. The Monlana is in a good  locality, being in the vicinity of  lhe Minnie M. and Tiger, .lohn  .L. iind oilier well known claims.  R. L.   T.   Gaibraith   returned  from a   trip  to  Tobacco  Plains  last week where he went on ofticial business in connection   with  the, Indian    Department., , Mr.  Gaibraith, furnishes The Pkos-  iMjxrron  the  following'interesting information   regarding  that  section;of East ICootenay:  ���   "At Tobacco Plains  ou   Phillipps creek a great deal of  mining   development 'is  going' on.  The proprietors aire  talcing   in  supplies and work  will  be  continued alf'winter.  On the  Minnie.  Victoria  and  Olympia    claims   on   Phillipps'  creelc there is an-immense"showing of copper" ore.     Hugh   Mc-  Cool   of   Marcus,    "Washington,  wilL put on a force  of men   this  winter to ascertain the value  of  the property. Considerable work  has been done  on  the   Morning  claim' on the same creek,   across  the international boundary.  ���   Phillipps, the new port of  entry tit Tobacco   Plains, vis  making satisfactory progress.,    The  town now boasts of an  excellent  hotel conducted by F. Roo.  who  is also a first-class caterer.    Mr.  Roo  has  in  connection a  good  general store well equipped with  merchandise   and   miners'   supplies.    There is  a  good  school  admirably    conducted   by   Miss  Dimlop, formerly of Vancouver.  The at ton dance keeps up remarkably well.  * A number of prospective settlers have recently been in the  country making inquiries for  land. There is no section of  East Kootenay so  well  adapted  In East Kootenay. ���Get   Capital   In  By Advertising- Its Resources.  Since the golden days of '04  there has been more or less attention paid to East Kooteuay,  more for its placers than quartz.  It is only a short time, comparatively, since any attention has  been paid to quartz mining but  now the lime has arrived when,  to'the quartz miner, must East  Kootenay look for its wealth.  The other resources of the  Kootenay valley are limited, and  the mines must be developed to  a point of producing. When it  i.s considered that I here are no  producing mines on the east  side.of the Kootenay. the necessity for greater effort, than has  yet been made, becomes apparent. There,are a large number of claims upon which more  or less work has been done bid  two. however, can be said to be  in a position to ship ore, and  upon these a vast amount of work-  has been done to demonstrate  their capabilities in that direction. Several other claims are  being systematically developed  in order to 'bring them tip to a  point of 'being mined for profit.  Thosejire the exceptions, while  hundreds of claims with excellent surface showing are lying  idle/probably for want of funds  to go on with development work.  To the owners' of these'it maybe  said that capital stands ready to  develop any meritorious prospect  and it should be encouraged' to  come hi:  There are other things , which  should .be done to bring the  country before the mining public  and that is advertising . its .resources.

The -.now in the mountains is no deeper than the snow  in the mountains about Denver.  The elevalion of the Kootenay  Valley does' not exceed L'.*>00 feet,  and the snowfall is n6 greater  than on other sections. Last  winter trains on the Crow's Nest  line were run ou schedule time.  The mines in the vicinity of Fort  Steele are being worked all winter. Never within the history  of the country has there been  more than ten days of extreme  cold weather. It is an ideal mill-,  ing country.  The County Court.  ,   With over seventy cases on the  calender the November  term  of  court has  been   adjourned   until  February  for   the   reason   that  Jucige Forin has too much to do.  Tn view of this fact it is  certainly the duty of  the  Government,  either to rearrange  the 'judicial  district so the work of the County  Court judges can be more equally divided.'or to.appoint a judge  for East Kootenay.    The  object  in calling attention to this   matter  is ' to  have  t lie   authorities  take such steps (as will   prevent  a  recurrence   of   this   state   of  a Bail's.     There are a number of  important cases on "the  docket,  and adjournment of the court on  o  short notice is causing attorneys  and litigants .much' trouble  and,  expense.  MANITOBA ELECTIONS.  Special to The J'kospkci'oh.  Winnipeg, Man. R���The  general election held yesterday,  the  tenth in the history of the province,    was    perhaps    the    most  keenly contested, and most even  in result of,any ever held in   the  Dominion.

Yi1 loops, and proposes to have a  ���jl l-'oo'm' where it will keepiiminer-  t\*a.l exhibit, mining literature, and  register with descriptions of  ^mining properties in the district.  ��') The people of Cranbrook are  %i evidently fully alive  to  lhe  ad-  Jor   fruit   culture    as    Tobacco  Plains.  A mail now leaves Phillipps  every Monday at 9 a. m.. returning from Elko the following day  with a large amount of mail for  the settlers. *  South of Tobacco, Plains the  international boundary has never  been defined, and in the location  of mineral claims there is bound  lo be some confusion. ��� It is the  general opinion among the miners in that section lhat the Dominion government should ask  for a joint commission with a  view of determining the boundary.  r To Work the John L.  Word has been received from  Spokane to the eu'ocl lhal work-  on the John L. claim on Tracy  creek would be resumed in a few  days. .1. H. Conklin. the manager is expected about the: 1.">th.  Il is also learned lhat the sum of  ��l(l,00d is now in lhe troasury  avaliable for development.  -To Compel Mines to  Resume ,Work.  According to the Rossland  Record:���'-The Provincial Government's quietly taking a hand  in the Slocan labor situation and  by the, tacit threat of doubling  the output tax it will endeavor  to make the mine owners'of that  section reopen their  properties.  "Tho Provincial Government  is notoriously ill-pleased at tht  attitude of the Slocan mine own  . A Christmas Entertainment.  The ��� teachers of . the Port  Steele public school are arranging "for an entertainment, at "the  Opera, 5Houso sometime before  tbe( Christmas holidays. The  youngmeople have been in training by}Miss Bailey for'sometime  past.' A*''* It' is "'"expected''/that  speeches, and' readings will be  given bv the local clergymen  and others.      ,   *-  ers in closing down their properties. Now it is intimating  that unless the operators there  comply with the eight-hour law  aud recommence operations, the  present mineral tax of one per  cent on not smelter returns, will  be doubled. Such a move, so  the administration represents,  Avill be necessary to gain the estimated revenue which would ordinary go to lho.vproviucc were  the Slocan mines working at  their normal capacity."  Such legislation would have  the contrary effect. It would not  force the Slocan mines to resume but would throw the tax on  Ihe producing mine--., with the  natural result of probably slopping all milling in fhe Province.  Lake Shore Deal Closed.  A The  deal  on  the Lake Shore  property  at  Moyie  was   closed  last  week, Avhen. J.   C.   Drewry  paid over $75,000 to. the  following parties:    C. C.

The  first rehcrsal.   since  the  reorganization of the Fort Steele  bras.-, band, took place  on   Monday evening last.    It was a great  gratification     to     fhe     musical  director A. Ore/, that the  members ol the band, were so-far .advanced;  A. He expressed   himself  as more than   Satisfied   and   that  in ;iAshorl>time, if the interest .is  kept up, the 'band' will   be  equal  to 'any   similar  organization' in'  the eastern cities.  Mining Notes.   '  Another, vein   of   high-grade  ore<has been  uncovered on   the  Delphine, one of lhe Windermere  properties.  ��� There is an enormous amount  of,,ore on fhe Paradise group on  Horse Thief creelc. So large is  the vein that it is impossible to  determine its extent until it is  more thoroughly developed.  Recent assays made of ore  from the Empire mine gave the1  following results:���28.S-1 per  cent copper and six ounces of  silver. A lolal value of ��107.84  per" ton. (.  A boom has struck lhe soutli  half, of the Colville reservation,  iu Washington. A number of  rich discoveries have been made  and the rush at present is that  way.  The labor troubles in the Slocan seem no nearer being settled  than when lhe strike' was first  inaugurated. -Neither Ihe mine  owners or the miners show any  disposition to yield.  Work will be continued all  winter on several well known  Perry creelc properties.  Latest News From the Transvaal.  Slll'ciul lO'l'IlK 1'iIOsl'KC'IUK  London, 7.���Fred IC.
