Nest branch is  too  well  known
to   need  reciting, and  also   that
much of the route now   occupied
by  the line is not susceptible to

prove the grade it will be necessary to change the route.
Since the construction of the
road circumstances have devel-'
oped the information that there
are easier grades than the ones
on the present rouie, especially
between Elko and Moyie lake;
and also that the resources there
are greater than those through

These discoveries' are situated
at the very watershed of Perry
creek and the Moyie river, and
at this particular point is one of,
tho lowest [lasses on the divide.
Jt is also slated by those who
have la ken elevations along the
route, that no where is there
more I ban a one-per-cent grade.
' It is well understood that the
(J. IJ. I*i. is considering, and have
signihed its intentions of changing the route lo improve the
grade east of the. mountains, at
places no worse than'on the west
In order lo make the C.P.R.. a
competing line with the Great
Northern into Spokane, it will
bo necessary to have an equally
well equipped road, and as the
Great Northern cuts into the C.
P. R*s trade only west of the
mountains, by means of its
Jennings and Morrissey branch,
it seems that this end of the
road would be most likely to receive attention. o
Jim Hill is putting Morrissey
coal into Spokane, a distance ol
oOO iniles, for §1.75 per ton. The
C.P.R. is charging &2 per ton
for hauling the same coal to
Nelson, a distance of lnO miles,
and it is safc-to say that he, Jim
Hill, ii doin^ it at le.-.s co.it than
the C.P.R. i.i in putting i: into
Nelson All thi*> ii on account
of better grades and equipment.
A short time atro a Great
Northern tram pulled out of
Elko with (57 ears loaded with
coal. The C.P.R. does well if it
can get out of Elko  with   twelve

, The Fort Steolo mining division is traver.ied in a north-west
erly direction by two continuous
chains of mountains, between
which lie the Kootenay valley,
which is well .suited for agriculture.
Each ot these mountain ra,nges
has been proved to contain mineral in sufficient quantity to be
profitably mined; while many oi
the streams are gold bearing.
Of   what   mining   value   this
great area is likely to prove can
be  best judged   by   an exam in
ation of the records of such pro
ducing mines as the St. Eugene.

The building cof the Crow's
Nest Pass railway opened up the
extensive coal tields of the district, which now have a daily
output of i',000 tons; which during the present year is expected
to be increased lo f),000 tons.
Fort Steele is the center of
known placer fields, which in tlie
past have produced millions in
gold. All this gold was obtained
with pick and shovel, and with ,
out the aid ot machinery. During the present year not Toss
than ten big hydraulic companie.s
with the necessary modern ma
chinery and equipment,1 will op
erate on/Wild Horse and Perry

Development of the inineritl
resources of this district' has
been slow, being delayed by the
lack of transportation facilities'.'
These conditions will he changed
by the construction of'lhe Kootenay Central railway", which will
tap the great inineritl belt oast
of the rCoofeiiay river, as well as
furnish tho necessary transportation for ores ini nod in t,hii
