In conversation with a representative of The Pkosi-kctou  Mr.   Rogers  expressed   himself  much pleased with what he  had  .������'.en  and   been   told  of  the'resources  of  the  Fort Steele district and said he lirmly- believed  rho district offered great  opportunities  for  the  investment   of  Capital in mines.     ���'If you  have  such  a variety of ores, aud such  .large  borlies  the  future  of  the  country is assured,     f  am ' more  than surprised al what has been  shown me and J .shall take.pleasure in talking of East  Kootenay  Lo   m,y   friends.^    There   is  no  doubt that with but little  adver-  ,   .tising  thi.s  section   will become  as. well knowji as any section  of  your province. , .  ft is"the intention of our" company to do  some  extensive  development on   the' Golden   Five  group,    from �� what- ��� has^Jieon  teamed, I believe we will hayca  mine.   ' As .you .know  Spokane  people have been largely instrumental in  exploiting  the  mines  '  of    Trail'   Creek., Slocan    and  Boundary and I believe yon will  . $pe them  in East Kootenay before the summer i.s oyer."  ���'  Mr. Rogers has been  engaged  in   the  real  estate'business   in  ."Spokane  for  many -years,' a,nd  lifts boon one" of'thO' motet suo-  ��cessful.   Ho is a-careful and conservative man.."   It  is 'sure  that  if   Lhe" Golden  Five   proVos.all  th'Al is  hoped  other capitalists  ���will   follow  and  many'1'mines of  lfr.e district will bo opened up.  making a strong effort to secure  the position of general manager  of the reorganized Hall Mines  Company. Mr. Jouett was, for  a number' of yeai'S ~coTfn*e~cted"  with the Nelson Miner.  A. T. Pollett left Kossland on  Monday last for East Kootenay  to taIce ' char-re of the Ho.skins  group for tlie li. A. C. lie will  work ten men.  There is great, activity on all  the claims on North Star Hill,  and it is probable that many new  ore bodies will be uncovered during the coining summer.  Tracy creek promises to be  one of the best camps in this' vicinity. The amount of work  which is being done on the different claims will surely make it  a Valuable ore producing section.  One hundred and fifty Ions of  ore aro being daily shipped from  the North Star and Sullivan  mines.  Some tine ore is being taken  from the Martin and Trilby  claims on Luke creek.  HOT TIME IN CRANBROOK.  The Montana.'  Late advices from the Montana are fo the effect that in the  shaft at the depth of forty feet  ore was encountered. The shatf t  wa.s continued to the 100-foot  level. At thi.s depth there was  from three to four feet of galena  carrying from ��ft to ��14 in gold.-  and 2;V-to 40 per cent lead, and  0 to 17) ounces in silver.  [n the crosscut running north  from ,the sixty-foot' level the  lodge is from seven to eight feet  wide of good concentrating ore.  "ARRANGEMENTS COMPLETED.  The Dupont.

George MV Cosgrove  of  Spo  J-aue arrived in town   on  Satur-'  Any last and left immediately   in  company  with   Robert   Dore  to  ��� visit the Grace Dore,  the  nickel  property on   Wild   Horse.      Mr.  y   Cosgrove   returned   to  Spokane  o�� Monday.  W. S. Rogers came down'from  t.lit; Golden Five group of inines  on Tuesday last.. He is-much  pleased with the progress made.  There is considerable hydrau-  Jio mining now being done on  Wild Horse. So far there have  J Mien no clean-ups.  W. A.

Mr. Mahon, who is to have  charge of the work, left Montreal  last Monday, and in a few days  after his arrival work will begin.  As stated in a former issue of  The Prospeutok work on the  property will be continued night  and day for a few months, when  it will be examined by a competent English expert, and if his  report is favorable, machinery  will be installed and development continued on a large scale  The    Martinites'    Idol   Scored   to   a  Finish   -Tho Martin-Smith Gram-  r^r-flphone   is Downed  by   East  Kootenay Politicians.  Then: was a hot time at Cran-  ! brook   on    Wednesday   evening  last, when   a  joint  debate  took  place between   Messrs.   Harvey,  Costigan   and   Baxter.     At one  stage of the  proceedings  it  became so loud that the ladies who  were in the   hall  commenced   lo  leave.      Personalities   were  indulged in   and   the   lie   passed.  The only speaker who  kept his  head was Mr. Harvey.  Messrs. Costigan and Baxter  both scored The Pkosi'eutou,  which by the way is the only  paper-in .the riding that is of  sufficient importance for theni to  pay attention to, thus acknowledging the political influence of  The Prospector. No damage  was done?  Costigan roundly scored {.Martin. Baxter tried to renew,,the  polish on> hi.s idol Joe Martin.  Costigan covered il with tntJd as  the battle of words proceeded:  Baxter was completely rattled  and was willing to quit.  From what, can ' be learned,  Mr. Harvey, speaking in the interest of William Fernie, was  logical and forcible, and' he had  thebest of the argument. Between Messrs. Harvey and Costigan, ���- Mr. Baxter thought lie  had run up again a Kootenay  cyclone.   c  Notes of the Meeting.  Politicians, like death, Jove' a  shining mark, arid' .The Pros-.  pecto'u'S large circulation aud  acknowledged influence make it  a fine target.  From all accounts the Gran-  brook'meeling"was a most,dig-  nitied one, and the bandying of  epithets was worthy of a meeting in the tenderloin district! of  any city.    ,  "You're a liar!" said one of  the debaters, at which many of  the ladies taking exception to  the coarseness of the' remark,  left the hall.  Our own  Mr.   Harvey  was  a  notable exception.     He  did not  lose his temper and.carried himself in u calm and dignified man  ner.  by Mr.   Baxter of  Mr.   Smith's  candidacy, no denial   was   made  of the   statement  that   lhe  J?J00  deposit was telegraphed in.  The   following  questions   are  I propounded   for  verification   or  'denial by Mr. Smith:  Did he not communicate on  Wednesday to Smith-Curtis that  he wished him to name another  candidate, a.s he wished to with-  d ra w:  ��� Was noi Dr. Kins;, T.

There seems to be no  reason why Kimberley" should  not be to Kast, Kootenay what  Wardner and Wallace aro to the  Coeur d'Alene.

The famous Payne mine near  Sandon is proving, a paying' investment for the new owners.  At the annual meeting held in  Montreal a few weeks,ago, Mr.  Haud, the manager, submitted a  report, which was most 7 encouraging.

That Joe Martin is in the field  for candidates in the different  constituencies is enduced from  the fact that the campaign fund  of Mr. Martin's party supplying  the deposits for the different  people who consent to run. This  is purchasing a following with a  vengeance.  The silent candidate lets another man do his talIcing.  E. C. Smith, and his "grama-  phone," T. S. Baxter, went to  J^ernie on Tuesday.  11 was not denied thai on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday  of last week. Mr. Smith desired  to withdraw.  It was not mentioned that at  one time Mr. Baxter was  seriously considered a.s a  candidate for this riding.  . Mr. Smith -was liotfoi'tuiiale  in his managers and advisors.  From what can be learned --they  lack the persuasive'eloquence'to  catch votes, and, not. strong  enough"., mentally to give force'  and.dignity to his campaign.  After (lie election tlie. 'Messrs.  Langley will fully appreciate  the fact that they are novices in  the game of.politics; If requires  men of sounder judgment and  greater experience "''to ' carry a  political campaign to a successful termination.  Confirmed the Report  of Mr.   C.   F.'  Hannington,���Telegram From  Chief of Construction.  I  La.-?t week The Prospector  published a telegram which was  received by Mr. C. F. Haning-  ton. stating the survey of a rail'  way from Fort Steele Junction to  Windermere would be commenced at once. The alarm was at  once sounded by those interested* in the-Martin candidate, Mr.  E.���'C. Smith, that it was a,, political trick and at a most opportune time.  " The Prospector in the ih-  teresi of the jjeople of Fort  Steele, immediately wired Mr.  Shaiighnessy, President of the  Canadian Pacific Railway,' to the  effect that a rnmorrwas in circulation that the* North &'' Soulh  railway survey was ordered. For  the benefit of those doubting the  message received by Mr. Han-  ington we publish the following  telegram, received from W. F.  Tye, chief of construction on the  C. P. Ry.  Ottawa,' May 20.

Jndcpeii-  dent candidate for this ricliiii-,  held a meeting in the Opera  House on Friday evening. The  demonstration was the largest,  ever held in Eon Steele. Hands'  [���laying, Hags Hying, fireworks,  bonfires and an immense crowd.  After Mr. Fernie had made a  very able speech, which wa.s received with great interest by his  -tudience, he was followed by  C. F. Haiiington, a civil engineer  ���vho read from the platform a  f��legrain from Montreal instructing him to at once proceed with  preliminary work on survey of  line from Fort Steele. Junction  fo Windermere, taking in the  town of Fort Steele.  This will give'Fort Steele railway connections.  Mr. .). A. Harvev followed Mr.  Haniiigton. -with a very -able  speech.  ' Mr.',' Ed.   Clark   and    several  others made short addresses.  The deinoustration before and  after the meeting was lhe largest ever seen in East Kootenay.  The prevailing opinion is that  Martin's candidate'will be snowed under, and that Mr. Fernie  ���wjll be elected'with a large majority.    ������ ' ,     '  It was announced at the meet-r  jug that E. 0. Smith had withdrawn, but this was a mistake,  but would have been true, were  ib not for the fact that Mr. Mar-  fin or some of his friends  wired  i  fn the necessary nomination fee.  Mr. A. W.  Bleasdell  acted  as  .chairman of'the meeting.  The    meeting     closed     with  cheers for the Queen.  oiu" iiiiiliiy   did   the   work.   hi>  I>ri"-<'ii1 diMJinici.it ion of tlie very  thiiii".*-   he   wa*   paid   lo  do.   all  point to the fact that he   is  ever  ready'   to  sacrifice   principle   in  fhe interests of .Joseph Martin.  A friend of labor!    We defy anyone to find a  strong   labor  man  in Manitoba who   will   say   that  Joseph Martin was ever  considered a friend of labor there.     He  never showed his  sympathy   for  the laboring classes,  and   never  had   their  support   as   a   labor  party.     He  showed   hi.s friendship for labor in this  Piovinee  by making  a  combination  with  James Dunsmuh-. and by defeating a bill to protect white miners  from cheap coolie labor.  Those who vote for Joseph  Martin have absolutely no guarantee that those principles which  he now espouses will not be offered as a'sacrifice on the altar  of his selfishness and ambition.  He is as dangerous to the Liberal party as he, i.s to the best interests of the Province. The  only hope for either lies incrush-  iug him completely in the coming election.���Greenwood Miner  VI ill*     iV'' i  winch 'wu'  -   il   Nn'  dd irivc  h  lhe snap  a nee  .lose.  away.  L'beinl Meeting:.  The Martin faction of the Liberals of Fort Steele held a meeting on Saturday evening. There  were some twenty or twenty-  five persons in attendance. As  far as can be learned nothing of  importance wa.s transacted, except to introduce to the elect  Mr. Baxter of Vancouver, who  will do the sneaking for Mr.  Smith during the campaign.

Pkosi'k-jtoi'-.  There is a   prevailing   opinion i Hgement   lo  that the majority (if  the  miners  and people  of  Fort  Steele  are  objecting to Mr. E. C.  Smith on  personal grounds.    This   is   not  | so, but tiie true_fact is.  that  we  'are objecting to Mr. Martin, and  as Mr. Smith has declared   himself in favor  of  Joe  Martin   we  must necessarily oppose  Martin  as an enemy  of  labor  and   the  best interests  of  the ' Province,  hence, men that run as a Martin  "Icandidate  must   be  opposed  on  the same grounds.  .-.  i A  MlNEK  (Sr'PliOSPECTOK.

There was a large bonfire in the  evening. Music, speeches and  cheers for the Queen. George  Scott sang an'English war soiig,  Ike .Watson a Scotch ballad, Dad  Sprague gave a humorous recitation. W. H. McFarlane toasted the Queen and. ,the President  of the United States. The evening wound up in a ,very joyful  had   a   jolly  manner,   everyone  sood time.     .   ���  W. H. M.  A Two-Edged Sword.  There  is   nothing ,in   Joseph  Martin's  career  that   would   induce any honest   and   intelligent  elector   to'vote   for   him.      An  ji.vowed   Liberal,   he  has  taken  .advantage of every opportunity  . lo knife  the  parly:   an  avowed  ��:noniy of   railway   corporations,  lie   has  been   found   doing   the  ' dirty work of every big  railway  ���company for a consideration: an  avowed friend of labor,  he  was  ready to make combination with  lilie enemies of labor  to  destroy  Iiie    (Jovernment     that     was   a  friend   of   labor.      Martin's   de-  muiieiafion of the Liberal Government, his sneering   reference   to  ���tin. honored lead.er of the party,  should force all true Liberals   lo  repudiate this  traitor.      A   professing Liberal   who  disparages  the  cause   of   a    leader    whose  ���words ha\e sent a thrill through  ihe   hearts  ol" British   subjects  ���wherever   found,   and   who   has  done more to cement  the  different  parts  of   the   Empire  than  any living man, should be crushed by the  great  Liberal   party.  A decent Tory is infinitely  pre  ferable  fo  Joseph  Martin.      A  Tory will fight when the  opportunity   presents   itself,   .but'  he  does not use the stiletto nor does  }ie stab in the back.   "���<  Martin struts about the country,as an enemy of railway corporations. His connection with  the Northern Pacific, railway in  Manitoba, his acceptance of a  ���fat'.fee from the Canadian Pacific- Railway Company to keep his  month   shut  while    lawyers    of  His,Chance is a Poor One.  A party of miners 'were, discussing Joe Martin's chances' of  election. ��  "I,think Joe's show,5s a damn  poor one in South, East. Kootenay", remarked a well-known  minor. "'Martin is a smart man  but his ruin or rule policy kills  him. rle has the ability, and if  he was honest and had a conscience, he would get there, but  he has not got any. " ,   ���  California Minerals  San Francisco.���The yield and  value of the mineral substances  of California "during tho year  1*399. according to the report of  the slate mineralogist, were $20,-  3KS,-K>0. The value of the gold  products was $ I :">,?}:{(). 031, copper $!5.9,J').5!J-I and petroleum $".'.'-  (HiO,'7r)M. As the total in moral  product i'or the previous year  was .valued at *l,7,^H9,07i), the  increase for 1S99 is Si!,<r_>4.H81.  Disinterested Joe Martin,  .loe Martin iu the present contest, is posing as the most disinterested man in fhe Province.  He positively declares that, he  has the welfare of the Province  at heart,; that his. railway policy  is not for the purpose of catching the Frasor river votes, but,  for the benefit of the Province  at large.  Joe Martin is one of the largest shareholders in the Sunset  Copper Mining Co., Ltd.. which  is situated on Copper Mountain,  at Princeton. The proposed railway that is to do. so much-, good  for the Province, will cross the  lines of said property, or very  close to it:, and''"'Disinterested  Joe Martin" would clean iip the  nice little sum of $200,000 or  more. :  Mr. Martin has a disinterested political drag-net, he wants  to catch the Labor vote, Liberal  vote and. the incredulous vote.  He would   try  for  the  Temper-  tin.  Martin has become a sort of  nightmare to the -people of the  Province.    '  The greatest event in the po-  liticarhistory of British Columbia, will be the turning down of  Joe Martin on June U.  Take  nothing   from    nothing  and what will remainV   Joe Martin and  his  Midway-Vancouver.  railway.' "    ,  Unlucky Thirteen. It- is said  that Joe,Martin has only twelve  candidates in the field besides  himself, Joe making thirteen.  , On June 9���Busted Martin can-,  didates, busted railway propositions, and busted election promises, will be auctioned off at their  real values, 10 per cent less 0.  E. P. Davis to Liberal party:  ���'What do you now think of Joe  Martin?" Liberal Party:������"He  seems to be comfortable* seated  as Premier. , He had a Rider,  and a Beebee. but wait until the  next house is iu session,' 'there  won't bo standing room for him.''  There i.s no necessity for further agitaiiou over ihe eight-  hour law. Eight hours a day is  long enough. We believe and  know from past experience, tnat  eight-hour'shifts give larger and  better returns to the mine-owners.  The announcement  that  Lieu-  u  tenant-Governor Mclunes had  called upon Joe Martin to form  a government, wa.s one of those  political'errors caused by an irresponsible factor in "British Columbia  politics.  The spectacle presented by  Joe Martin not knowing ''where  he is at" is a painful one. Am  nearly a.*-, he is able to define hi.s  position, he is in British Columbia for Joe Martin and nothing  else, hi.s motto is ������rule or ruin,"  but the electors of this Province  will see that the only party ruined will be '-Fighting Joe Martin". The people will lake the  matter in hand on June lfith.  the investment of  capital and at the same time  safeguard tho interests of labor.  _ The liberal expenditure of  money throughout the whole  Province on roads, bridges,  trails,and other works necessary  for iis proper development.  :���!

Nomination    Finds" Martin -In   the
Soup.—The Beg-hming: and End
, of His Government. ,
Victoria. B. C. May I'd.— To
day in the thirty eight constituencies -in this province candidates were formally placed in
nomination to contest the'general
election,'and which«will result in
the retirement of Joe, Martin, to
political obscurity, and the restoration of stable ^government
and public confidence.
,01) iiie eve of nomination, he
had only been successful in inducing" eight men to follow his
banner. Yet 'others of ' the
standard bearers of the government ha ye only been secured
upon a vague understanding that
should a miracle occur tuid
Martinism -be sustained, , its
founder and head and every constituent part will stand ready to
step down and out in favor of J.
C. Brown, should the party vote
for his leadership.
Mart in will not consent to this
he himself has offered in both
Victoria and Vancouver, and for
ten scats he has found it impossible to secure candidates in his
interest. There could be no
more eloquent admission of defeat.
Politics in West Kootenay.
Bx-Governor Mackintosh after
mailing a tour of tho riding says:
•'I can report a strong ante-Martin feeling all over the district,
a strong feeling which indicates
a great, Iriuniph for opponents
of Martin. Martin says that be
will have at least :2r> seats, but
my information is that he will
not have six.
WAS LO   lillUNli.
Kane backed out, of the tri-
party meetings arranged in this
riding. In consequence R. A.
Green aud John Kane are putting up a very ..-stiff tight." Green
is indorsed by all the Miner's
Unions, including Slocan City.
