The assessment  work on nearly every claim is  being, done ��� regularly. The  country ��� is remote from, transportation; but that is the/only  drawback to the district. Placer  mining is being prosecuted  vigorously aud the output of  placer gold will he increased  considerably over that of last  year. They have big bodies of  silver-lead ores, and large free  gold quartz veins, and there is  no question about the camp being a prominent one when the  Kootenay Central is completed  to it.

Toronto, 0nt..'.< July 4 5.��� The  irrigation scheme which the  Canadian Pacific has now under,  way is undoubtedly the largest  undertaking of its kind on this  continent. It embraces an area  extending from Calgary' foi- 1.50  miles, and runs (50 miles north  and south. Through the center  of this tract the main line of the  Canadian Pacific runs.' The  .greater part of three years has  been devoted to reconnoissance  and preliminary surveys of the  proposed canal scheme and the  land to be served therefrom, and  the result shows that about one-  half,   or   1,500,000  acres  of the  A, Weekly Budget of News From  the New Placer Camp.   -  W.

Armstrong with a���force of 16  men are now at work at Galloway, with Port" Steele' and  Golden as their objective point,  this' is the final step before  actual construction. ���  The above news will be very  satisfactory to the people of  Fort Steele, who have a. natural  anxiety to learn just what was  the intention of the promoters  of the K.C.R. It would seem  that the matter is settled, aud  the people of this town, and the  mining men of the district surrounding can lay their plans accordingly.  The building of- the K.C.R.  will stimulate, mining development to a wonderful degree.  The commercial importance of a  north and south road in South  east bKobtenaybcannot be over  estimated^ and the people will  look with pleasure towards any  railway which will, tend"to the  material development of. the entire Southeast Kootenay district.  Forest Fires.  The season of forest fires is  here and,already a large amount  of local damage has been done  south of Wardner. With the  probability of an .unusual hot  and dry summer, it. becomes  necessary ,- that precautions  should be taken to prevent the  starting of forest fires.  Coal lands believed to be worth  millions, are being fought for by  Spokane men who have made locations in Southeast Kootenay,  British   Columbia.     Ex-Senator  (j  George Turner, Senator Levi  Ankeny, Thomas,Greenough, A.  J. Blethen, P. Bryne and dozens  of other prominent men are interested in the fight.  Rival interests: The Spokane  group, the Rossland group, the  Nelson group, the Laidlaw  group, the Janes group, and  other groups innumerable, have  been staking claims, abandoning  claims, and jumping claims until  there is' now'a tangle of such  huge size that its creators are  aghast at their own handiwork,  says the Spokesman Review. '  Unless all the maps in existence lie, agents for various  groups have been staking claims  and jumping claims until the  actual ground , will not begin to  hold the locations.' Tt is manifest . that some of the locators  will either get no claims at all,  for which they have put up good  money, or else they will get  mere, fractions, much smaller  than the mile square locations to  which they are entitled under  the law.  ' The fight for the coal, lands is  only starting and it is likely to  wage through Canadian courts  for years.'  The lands are southeastfof the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal,,, fields,"  and are in the how famousjBlock  4593i,^It forms a-fcriauglje-bound-  ed'onithe'-^est-'by the Canadian  Pacific land, on the south ,by' the  American Hue, and on the northeast byr the Rocky ' mountains,  which' mark the boundary between British Columbia and  Alberta.  Andrew Hacketl, of Spokane,  staked the first group for the  Spokane Palls Gas Light Company in 1902. In August of 1902  Fred Ritchie and Ross Thompson of Rossland, staked the  Rossland group. A few days  later Mr. Hackett formed the  Spokane group, and staked the  first 50 claims, on what he believed was block 4593. The rest  were staked a year ago.  So strong was the demand for  locations that a little later Mr.  Hackett formed1 the Anderson  group to norih of his first one.  The nominal locator was  Hackett's friend A. L. Anderson  of Rossland. and now numbers  120 claims.  All the maps in existence show  that it would be impossible to  crowd 120 claims, each a mile  square into that little space.  Mr. Anderson, the locator who  has been piling up the locations,  cheerfully defies the maps by  saying all of them are wrong  and that there's plenty of room  for even more claims. None of  the people he has staked can dispute him. for none have been ou  the ground.   .  While this has been going on,  troubles have been piling up for  the original Spokane or Hackett  group. Nelson people sent a.  surveyor into the Flathead, who  staked 120 claims, many of  which overlapped the Hackett  group. Fred Ritchie asserts  that his Rossland group covers a  part of the ground, which  Hackett staked in 1902 as part of  the Spokane group, Hackett. retorts that Mr. Ritchie's locations  are not on Block 4593 at all, but  are west of it.  South of the Spokane group is  the Grand Porks group of 50  claims,   some of  these have got  tangled up with Rossland group.  East, of the Hackett group is  the Andrew Laidlaw group of 32  claims,, which' are said_ tojiave  been jumped by the Nelson  group. Mr. Laidlaw spent  several weeks on the ground and  is perfectly satisfied thai it was  vacant ground when he located.  Southeast of. Ihe Spokane  group is ~ the second Laidlaw  group, and' south of it. is the  Chamber of Commerce group.  The provincial government  has announced that it would  grant licenses to all claimants,  upon tho payment of $100 license  fee, but would not,undertake to  determine the rights of any of  the.contestants. "  The result has .caused turmoil  at Spokane. Inevitable litigation faces the locators. .There  is no certainty of the outcome.  In order to protect their inter-,  esls someof the various groups  are forming incorporated companies, to which each locator  will turn his claim and receive a  pro rata share of stock. There  is no  question  of the enormous  value  of  the , coal lands.    They  'i  shpuld;be'worth millions. ,   It is  now   a -question 'who   will  get  them.    '  DISTRICT.MINING NEWS.

HACKETT VS. C0VELL.  I  $50,000  was Paid Flathead' Coal  Boomers.  In the Superior Court of  Spokane, Edward Covell, of  Moyie, has brought suit against  Andrew Hackett, of Spokane, to  compel said Hackett to divide  with plaintiff the fees paid by  the locators for their locations  in the now famous Hackett  group in Block A'AA'A in the Flat-,  head country.  Tt is alleged by the plaintiff,  Covell. that a partnership was  formed by the parties, to carry  un the business of locating men  on coal lands iu British Columbia. The charge for locating  the, claims was *l.r>t) each, and  the aggregate fees paid "amount--  ed to .$*>2,-00(). and before the  partnership was dissolved,  Hackett,' continued ., locating  claims and collected a total of  '{'50,000, which 'Hackett lias refused to account or share with,  plaintiff.  It ,is said that the claim on  which the big showing of coal.  55 feet,wide, is'made' in Covell's  name.

Located June lillli. lilOI. ,  Mary Shea. Locator ���   .  ^7 John 'I'. Uluff,' Ascnl  The gre-A.1 valley of the Kootenay -river is, 'within the ten-mile  bell, underlain by an nnfossili-  J'erous rock-scries which has  lilhological characters dift'erent-  iatin"' il i'rom all the rock-tev-  rancs to the westward. This  senies is largely composed of  jrT-a.y, heavilyu bedded quartzites  with iliiii, micaceous partings.  Ji forms the'western extension  of thi; socalled ������Cambrian"  Quartzite ' formation which, ac^  cording0to McEvoy, covers niost  of the disiric't of East Kootenay.  The ' (luavtzito, has been faulted  clown againsl the much older  crystalline mass just noted in  the (eastern) part, of Mie belt situated between Priest river and  and Rykort mountain." West-of  the, Kootenay flats, the dip of the  cjuarLzite averages about (i0( to  the southeast; east of tho river  the same formation reappears  from beneath the rivet- alluvium  with an average dip of 10�� to  the east. This sharp.discqrdance  of attitude is well marked for the  whole ten miles along'the valley  between the boundary line and  Creston ' junction, and points to  the fact that the Kootenay valley  is located on a principal zone of  fracture-displacement. McConnell-has found similar evidence  on the shores oL' Kootenay lake.  The valley owes its origin either  directly to the subsidence of a  loug narrow block of the mountain-built crust of the earth (then  n fault trough or "graben") or,  us i.s more probable, il is the result of'rivov-excavation on a zone  of roclf rendered weak by the  shattering aud faulting. In comparatively recent geological time  the normal river-profile of the  valley was altered and.Kootenay  lake came into existence. At  One time it extended with its full  width of from two tofour miles  far to the southward of the  boundary line. The fifty square  miles of alluvial , fiats .and  sloughs between .the line and the  outlet of the river is a true delta-;  area. The river is still building  up its flood-plain which foriris'  some of the richest arable land  in British'Columbia.  CATTLJO  UA1S1NG.  The whole of the Kootenay  valley is well suited for cattle-  raising during the summer, as  the ground is covered with  luxuriant grasses and fodder  plants.- The winters are short  and hay for about one month  must, be made.

Miller  both well-known in London,   established, au advertising agency  in this city .with offices on   Carl-  ing streeU " Since- its inception  the business has steadily   grown  until it has now become a strong  factor   in- the,Canadian   field of  advertising,   and at present the  firm is handling some of the best  advertising accounts  in Canada.  In September last the firm found  it    necessary    to    find    larger  quarters, and moved into a hand  some suite of offices in the Bauk  of Toronto Building where r,hey  are still located:    The entire interests   in   the  business  of Mr.  George'Miller  have  now   been  taken over by Mr. M. M. Ferguson,' late of  Lawson  &   Jones,  who will devote all  his time  to  the interests of the  new  firm.  The change took place Saturday  morning.       Both    Messrs   McConnell and Ferguson are young  men   and  popular  in   this  city,  and the business is sure to prosper under the'new management.  ���Lopdon Free Press.  NOT1CJ3.
