On-July 17th, 1897, the Pitos-  f��B<"ron called the attention of  tins residents of Port Steele to  nhri fact Unit' Col. Baker was  lining his position asf'u member  is j the 'government to , boom his  T.own of "P.eautiful' Cranbrook."  and t&Jj&t'ore to the detriment of  Fori. Sieele.  Wo learn today, from a source;  -^hicliAA'o doom perfectly-reliable  uhat once more Col. Baker is at  u}313 old game of townsifc boom-  'ing:. It is only two A\'t:'eks since  ghe Colonel returned from England, hastily he rushed to  o'-fjciautiful Cranluxiok", called  .together the'.select few, , intimat-  Kisgr that now w:as the: lime lo  down Port Steele.  Tho l?roviiioi-:l House meets  sin Jan. nth and T must be Llie re. jpcyiicy of the LIotl James Baker  and I have every reason to think that such a thing should con-  ihiil our scheme 'will ' win.   , Let j 1imnv\yhou there is a possibility  of corn coming   to   the   mill   by  given out on the authority of the  member that it shall be the Cov-  ernment headquarters for East  Kootenay.  Cranbrook' from a   mining  or  mineral standpoint has no standing.     We honestly make'the assertion that in our opinion there'  is not,twenty ineiividuals  in   the  town that owns or is personally  inlorosteel in  mining.      On   the  contrary fully 7f> per cent of. all  Ihe mining property in the  district i.s owned,   or controlled  by-  the people of Port Steele.     It is  a piecc"of unadulterated gaul on  the part of the   present  member  to   intimate   that   his   town   of j  "Beautiful Cranbrook" can ever J  be more than what it is< at  this  moment���a  .railway   town   with  an attachment called  ^divisional point.    ,  Port ' Steele? as _ a central'  point and as the largest and most  prosperous town in South East  Kootenay, has been for -Jf. years  the residence of whatever government officials there were in  I he district. But it seems thai  il    is   not   consistent    with   the  terest in the aforesaid smeller,  with the privilege to select a tie-  pass over the main line east or  west, for there'is no use of being  a divisional point and owning a  railway without proper passenger travel. The first sprouts of  these phantom industries may  not be apparent to the inquisitive, but they are all'there in  "Beautiful Cranbrook"' just the  same, for if you be in doubt  there is the assuaging voice of  tho townsifc agent to're-assure  you.   '  o ,  L.

( ,*r  The C. P. B. Will Build tho Branch  ��� JCme at Once.  ���''' The Canadian Pacific Railway"  has at last'announced its intention regarding the railway connection to 'be givcyi to Ptjrf  Steele. -  ^ oration J.'no will 'oave >chr  main line-'at a point .near the  Port Steele June;lion, following  the meandering of the Kbofeiniy,  river to Port Steele. Thence by  the direct roule to Windermere,  making connections with the  propewd route from Arrcnv Lake,  to Windermere.  It is expeototl that the surveyors will connivence running preliminary lines from Port 'Steele  within the next tern day.--. Three  hundred men are expected- at  the Port Steele Junction where  a large camp is to be made, and  actual work on the line lo Port  Steele be commenced  It is the intention of the company to continue: this branch up  the A-alley. on the west bank of  the Kootenay. thence west to  North Star and Sullivan mines.  The above news avi'11 be very  satisfactory to tho people of Fort  Steele, who have had a natural  anxiety to learn just what the  intention of the railway company wa.s with respect to this  place. There wa.s never any  doubt felt here but that. Fort  Steele would have  railway   con-  llie u.-'.ual ������eremonial. A military  guard c/i' noiiur attended the lien-  tenant-governor, aa'Jio opeiH-cl.lhe  house, delivering the speech from  the Ihrone in person. ' There  were bid.' four absentees, the  principal among 1hem. being  ox-Premie "Turner, whods no\\  en route fur.n England.  "The first business was* the  election of a speaker, ��� Thomas  Forsior, member for the Delta of  New Westminster district, being  chosen tor the position, Mr.  Kollie movTiig and Colonel Baker  acting loader' of the opposition,  seconding. The performance  compared badly witli the ceremonial of 0Lormer years, although  tho croAvd I axed the accomodation of the house to the utmost.  The government iiaft gained  another supporter. Ah-.' Alox.  Henderson, oPNcw Westminster,  having signifieel his intention-of  joining hands with them. This  leaves the government, after the*  election of a speaker, with a ma-  jority oi tour. Old parliamentarians express the opinion that  this i.s sutlicient to carry on the  business of the country, although  enemies ' of tlie government  prophesy an early defeat.  Among the most important pronouncements of the government  policy, iudicateel by the speech  from the throne, is the abolition  of the employment of Japanese  in the coal mines, the reason  given being lhat the better protection ofjjho white laborers is  necessarv.

This represents him as preparing assiduously for a coup, which he is  fully resolved to execute. Prince:  Victor, turnover, is hostile lo  useless manifestations. His  brother Prince Louis Napoleon  will be found beside him "'on  the day of action." They are  "closely united in warm and sincere affection."  TALK   IX   VAXCOl'VKK.    \  Vancouver, Jan. "..--Alucdi  talk is, hoard in town over the  announcement in the speech from  the throne at the opening of the  legislature today that a bill will  be introduced to exclude aliens  from 1aking up or working placer mining claims within the  province. The importance of  this is iii no way to be gainsaid  as it will shut out United States  citizens from the Atlin country,  completely anel will preserve its  richness for British subjects  alone.

We trust then that the government of Canada anel our provincial authorities Avill encourages  railway building in this province  by (��very means in their power.  Build More Railroads.  The Chinese government has  practically decided to lake steps  al an early date to make considerable extension of railways in  the empire. We trust that the  Provincial Legislature Avill see  their way clear to assist, in building more railways in the Port  Sieele district.  Bequostod to Resign.  Mr. J. D.

The Boston dispatch says  the  &��m  in  copper' mining  stocks  which began a  month  ago has  irJuecomo a scramble for the abtive  ,.-stocks at .times of  late,   with  a  ft-savy   volume .of 'trading,   and  jtRffice^ up several  points.      The  leeasan for this is said  to  be   in  Ifcust'thata combination of  New  York capitalists aims to control  . f2s& copper output of the country  5ttud has started in to buy  up  all  Siva .available stock of the leading  ^companies, with the idea of pool-  wig it on some  basis  not  made  fiaj-own as yet, anel probably  not  fitiBy decided upon.     Already a  .majority of tho stock of some of  ftfoe largest companies  is  in  the  -sewitro] of the syndicate, and the  -whole deal is likely   to  be  com-  pfasted within the next 60  days.  There are varying ���stimates of  Rise capital of the proposed com-  jKurry, running all the way  from  ^���200,000.000 to *~>00,000,000.    As  s-u general rule,   trusts,   coinbina-  ifems or syndicates,  as  at  present formed and concluded in  the  fct,rge ctommorcial centers of this  <nr any other country, aro a 'detriment, unci an   injustice  to   the  tixeo^le; but this particular one is  .smi   exception   to  the rule,   and  would be tho means of giving the  twkiing interests of  British  Cc>-  lisrmbiaa   boom,   which   in  turn  wt^ldbefelt by  all  other  lines  ���rariE business throughout the  Pro-  -wioee.'.'' ���        .   '''���'���   '  ������'���.��� ,' Gold Production.'-  ETery banker:lias .his  eye  on  ���fibs enormous gold production of  ������'���d&i�� world.    From .figures at'hand  're appears that the world's gold  ' ���gnwdu'ctiion  for   1897  was $240,-  '.���.eS^OOd, coinage value,' and that  ra. Jess .than ten years'.the.annual  yield   has doubled and is now  greater than the  combined  pro-  ^mrkkm of both gold  and  silver  myears ago.     The estimate of  tifae   gold   production   for  1898,  foa^eeljon  the large  returns  al-  ireadyln, is $275,000,000.      The  ������/MiOiiey  stock  of  gold  Jan.   1st,  1894, in the whole world,, was  *8,9(35,900,000���the supply ac-  cumukited since gold began to be  used as money. ' The five years'  production,'since, including the  estimate for 1898 will, Jan. 1st,  1899, be $1,997,000,000 coinage  value, or 27 per cent, of the  world as it stood just five years  before. If the increase continues  we have a bigger question than  we,now appreciate..  Reciprocity in Coal.  The  belief  is general  in  the  Eastern States  that the   movement in behalf of lower duties on  coal between the  United   States  and Canada has taken on an entirely new phase and is no longer and effort on the part  of  the  manufacturers of the Northeast,  and on the Pacific coat  to  bring  in coal  from   the  British   Provinces   in   the   East,   and  from  British Columbia for use in their  furnaces:  but  it is primarily a  movement   on   the  part  of  the  great bituminous.coal producers  of the United  States  to  extenil  their trade with Canada.    Strenuous efforts are now, in progress  on this line.   The story runs that  the control of the situation  lies  in the hands of Stephen" B. ' El-  kins, who owns biturninuousconl  mines   in   Maryland  ,und   West  Virginia, too far from tho Canadian border for him  to compete  for the Lrade  in   that direction.  It i.s said that  he  is  exporting  coal to Africa and- other distant  ports, that, he sends some of his  product to the  Eastern   States,  and, 'therefore,  is well satisfied  with the tariff as it is.    He is reported to have used5his influence  to prevent a change in the rate,  saying that he would nc)t consent,  unless the producers in the Middle West wanted it.    That condition was fulfilled,   anel  then he  desired to wait until the  Pacific  coast had been heard   from.     A  petition is in circulation 'on the  coast for a induction of duty,and  it is generally supported by the  manufacturers, in this part of tho  country.     Hence,   the   pressure  on Elkins is being continued with  the hope that he  will  give  way  anel   lower   duties   bV  secured.  Canada is practically  the chief  market for the   bituminous  coal  of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and the  adjacent region. , Tho mine owners   there   sell to  Canada foui  tons' of coal for every' ton which  is sold by Canadian mine owners  to the United States.    If British  Columbia is excluded' the difference is 20 to 1.    If lower  duties  can be secured on this coal from  the Middle West; -it will be of  immense advantage to that  part  of the country, with no offsetting  disadvantages   of   consequence."  Hence there is a strong desire of  having reciprocity   in   coal ' between the two countries, and the  movement has  reached  such   a  stage that .its friends are hopeful.    The financial  interests  involved- aro    enormous,    and    a  great number of people are also  concerned.    These interests employ not less than 340,000 men representing Ij 700,000 people, not'  including many thousands more  included in the clerical forces.  Prospecting- for JCineral��.  Iu prospecting for minerals  the first thing to be ascertained  is, whether there are any minerals in that locality and of what  description. The next question  will be as to the precise spot in  which it will be most likely to be  found. Suppose we wish to find  galena, which is known to be in  the vicinity, we must, in order to  in.-a.re success, know the accompanying formation���that is. the  rock in which the galena is embedded. Knowledge of this  character multiplies the chance  of finding the mineral. In many  cases we select the rock ace-om-  pauying the mineral, or such a  vein of dead mineral as has an  extensive range, no matter how  far, or high, or low it may bei  from tne ' supposed vein, we  judge the. distance, and if the  rock wher��iir the mineral is bur-  Wher'o  the ", vein , runs   parallel  with tho formation, as is the case  in gold regions, there-is not much  difficulty in finding  a vein, but  where the mineral veins traverse  the strata at angles more or less  defined,, the object is not so readily obtained.     When nfragments  of ore or float are  found  on  a  hillside, it  is  evident  that   the  vein must have1"* higher location  for these  fragments  must  have  come down  the  hill.     If   fragments are found in" a stream   the  vein that supplied them must be  higher up the, stream;   and  the  farther up the lighter the material,   as   heavy  minerals  do not  drift  far  as on account of their  weight they are easily destroyed.  Galena    never   drifts  far   in   a  stream, it is always found  close  to its source.     If  the current is  strong enough to move the fragments of galena, it is soon ground  into such a line dust that it can  be carried off by the most gentle  current.    Therefore, native metals,   and   sulphurets   of   metals  are ' always   found   near    then-  source, becausejtuey cannot move ���  far without destruction.  =t-  CARLIN  & DTJRICK  GENERAL  ' K ' i'  Fort  ''"   Steele,  MERCHANTS  'Ees't  Kootenay.

This conclusion is erron-  ous, says B. F. Giltner, in Ores  and Metals, as we; shall see from  "observed,.fact.s.���   To r.say that no  placer of gold   is  derived  from  lodes carrying ge>ld would not be  the exact facls.0   From observation and experience  it has  bceii  demonstrated   that    where    the  richest     placers      exist,     "that  near    by     the     least     number  of     ge-ld     mines     have     been  found.    The reason for this condition is obvious,  because, first,  there must bea-prime condition  in   which,   and   on   account  of  which, gold occurs.  Now, the source and prime  condition oPthe gold must be the  first consideration, and we must  first dropping a cube  of   pyrilo  into the  solution iind   then   by  placing    souk-   chip*   of   wood,  dried   srra--:s or   loaves   into   ihis  solution, which causes  the  gold  to, percipitato   onto   tho    cube,  thereby creating a veritable nugget.    The black protoxide which  which encase?.-, the grains  which  aro frequently found in  the auriferous gravels and sands, is but  the excess of '.sulphur  resulting  from thia chemical change. . The  general   rule  to  be  followed is  this, that the  finding  of   great  placers   is  no evidence  of   rich  lodes, but where rich placer golcl  is founel it is evident  only   that  the country from which the gold  is derived is equally  impregnated throughout, exposing a large  surface  area   upon   which    the  water and air have  opportunity  to act.

The water'.carries the gold down in  the  lower  level,until if comes in contact by  its flow   with   something which  must cause a redisposition of the  gold in the gulch or valley below.    The"1 "chemical' conditions  must be exactly  right   to cause  the gold solution, and again must  "be right for the;, see-ond deposition,'   which   makes   tlie  placer  gold. J Ticino river in Italy furnishes no placer  golcl   until   its  waters have swept through Lake  JMago'rie, the gold bearing rocks  b.'ing   entirely  above the  lake,  thus-showing that the conditions  necessary for   the 'redisposition  of the gold are   not   right   until  the solution has passed through  the lake.    The Rhine gives more  .placer gold near Strasburg than  it does near   Basle,   though   tho  o  latter place is nearer, the mountain than the former. The Danube river sand rcarry no geilel  from Passer to'Efl'ording, but iu  tlie plains below the latter place  large .quantities of placer gold  have boon taken out.  The same conditions exist in  the river Ems. Tlie sands of the  upper river, where it flows  through the mountains, contains  no golcl: but from the plains of  iStcyor to where' the river flows  into the Danube, gold has been  washed      from      the   ���auriferous.!      .

The form  of the nugget is dependent upon  its matrix in which the nugget  was moulded during the time of  its accretion., Nor must it be  presumed that a nugget remain-  erf in its first bed until it was  discovered. The groat floods  now and then may have disturbed  if . from time to time, until it  would have assumed a globular  form or irregular shape. The  'placer gold found in the bogs of  Guiana. S.

These'  slates are highly impregnated  with pyrites, which is the ideal  condition for the deposition of  golel brought down from ��� the  mountains above. Thus it will be  seen that placer gold grows by  accumulation. ('  The. same .conditions exist in  Alabama and Georgia, where the  placer gold is'found in the flu rial  sand that �� I have mentioned  above; and I could mention-many  'others like the above������ in the  Rocky Mountain placer dig-  srinscs. It'is evident, that in Amer-  ica nearly all the, placer grounds  carry black protoxide of iron.  Now; where did this black protoxide come from, as the form of  iron is only sei-cemclary and tlie  sulphides of iron the secondary  condition'! Now, let us sec what,  causes this chemical change.

'Tins services of a  gentleman well known in this  province. Mr. RE. Gosnell, late  provincial, librarian, have been  secured to organize the reading  centers' in British Columbia, and  under his direction there is.no  doubt that the movement will be  highly'successful. He will henceforth devote his time and' energies to the work. The; Times  will later on be able to publish  fuller particulars of what is contemplated and actually done, under this: system, but for the  present it will be sufficient, to  give a few outlines.  The*, association have published  a series of studies in-subjects of  wide   aiid   general.' interest,  the  cents for a certificate of examination. It is therefore within the  reach of all. rich or poor. Of  course, such low fees are only  possible on the basis of large  popular .classes, 'and 'owing to  the popularity of the system the  association has been able' to  carry, it out on a self supporting  basis.  'Mr. Gosnell expects that', the  system will meet with special  favor in British Columbia where  the opportunities for securing  higher education have been, so  far, fewer than' in the-eastern  provinces, and where access to  reference libraries is practically  out of the' question, no other  epjalification being necessary  than intelligence, ordinary educational acquirements and a desire to improve. He is particularly hopeful of the success of  the political course, as it involves  a course of reading of such universal interest'and importance.  In this, as in all other studies,  the aim is to present without  prejudice or bias an outline of  the original history, development and principal tenets of the  various schools of thought. Expensive or any other books of  reference are unnecessary, as  the text books provide, extracts"  from the various authorities fully  sufficient to supplement tho. text  of the lessons. To those, of  course, who can afford it aids in  the way of reading the works of  the best authors are highly advantageous, but the system affords a well selected digest, in  all the studies, of the statements  and opinions of standard authorities, a feature in itself of inestimable.-value.  It,is; the intention of Mr. Gosnell to prosecute the work vigorously, so as to take advantage of  the vnnter season, during which  if can be best carried on. He  states that all that will be enacted of ,. readers, to, complete ' a  course,'is. one half hour of solid  reading each day.
