PORT  STEELE,  13. C.  SATI/^DAV, JUNE 3, 1899.  No 22.  BIG MINING DEAL.  Several Bull River Properties Sold  to Spokane Capitalists.  A deal involving the sale of a  controlling interest in'the Chickamun' Stone, Mabel. Oregon and  Riverside mineral claims on Hull  river, was consummated on Monday. W. E. Johnson, the well  known mining man, conveying  the property to Charles Theis,  president of the Port Steele  Mercantile Company. The price  for which the interest   was  sold  ��� has not been made public, but ,it  ��.*��� thoughfto be a large figure.  This property is-not unknown t>.  the people of Fort Steele ahd has  been favorable commented on by  '\ those who have seen it. *-  The development of the prop-,  ��-rty consists of ,one''tunnel- H>('  .��cet, and two incline shafts 27>  feel and 10 feet respectively! A  carload of shipping ore is now  on' the dump, "having been" taken  "c from'the present workings.   The  .   ore is all high  grade  giving   an  ' juverage assay .value of #150 to tlie  ton in -gold and' copper. The  yeiri is from 12 to 30, inches in  width,and l.ios in the center of a  porphyry dyke 130 fee.t wide.  ''     Tlie work of further exploring  the property'will  be  continued.  '    'Seven men will be put at work  - next week, and as fast   as  room  can be made,this number will be  increased.,,. , .    ,  The properties will shortly be  incorporated, and the new company will go on with systematic  development. ' The upper tunnel  'will be run 11 "/feet further to a  point immediately aiiider the  rihaft at which place a vertical  depth yf TOO feet'will be, atlain-  �� od.    The lower tunnel .will be 'a  ; ( cross-cut for, 101 .feet ;or\to -the  ,',--|Kjiiit "of  inlersec'tii'ou--" with, the  7vein. \nd ������"drifting 'on   the' Vcia  ��� Vi.ll be  continued  for ,221 ,, feet,  immediately "under the shaft and  27*) feet from the surface.   In the  K upper tunnel an upraise will be  made to the surface,  and  in  the  "  lower an   upraise, will  be  commenced to connect with   the , upper workings.    In  the new company Mr.   Johnson   will   hold  a  "substantial block of stock.  tt is said that Peter Larson,  lbe well known railway contractor, and Mo-ritz1 Thomson, of the  Centenial Mill. Spokane, are associated with Theis in the deal,  but as Mr. Theis left town on.  Wednesday morning this statement could not be verified.  still a vast amount of work is  being done by companies aud individuals. So far as my observation goes the greatest values  are in the Selkirk's. I have never made any special examination  of the .mountains on the east side  of the valley, although I am informed that there are some good  mines there and the surface  showings are excellent, but I am  more impressed with the formation of, the mountains on the  west side of the valley,  i* I venture to assert that the  Windermere country will inside  of three years assume the prominence which has been accorded West Kootenay."  CONFIRMS  THE   REPORT.  be effected in a few days and  then the public will be made  aware of the details.  W. M. Violet was in town from  his properties on the Nortii Star  Hill. He' has sunk' a shaft in  the vein of the Bunker Hill to a  depth ol' IH feet, at which point  ho has an excellent showing���  two stringers of lead carbonates  one IS inches wide,tthe other 11  inches. He is much encouraged  at the outlook.  Dan Howe", a well knowifpros-"  pector, has a group of claims on  St. Mary's lake,which the development shows to run high in-silver and lead.

Vroui Our   Ovjii Correspondent  Ottawa, May i��0.��� That   Canadian affairs  continue  to  attract  wiry much interest in England-  interest of   an   intelligent   and  practical kind���is more evidenced by tlie   attention  which  has  iieon paid toMr.Fielding's budget  speech.    Exceptionally extended  -cable reports   we're  supplied  to  the British  journals,  and   these  ���were extensively u��ed, not only  Ix'ing given unusual prominence  in the news columns of the ' various" papers, but occupying a first  .place in the editorial page of the  ' nRiiue issuu. The general tone of  these editorial comments is  warmly congratulatory on ,the  irreat prosperity which the country isenjoyiiig. and next to that,  very general comment wa.s made  ��� upon the Minister's remarks  stmmf the failure ot\the British  manufacturers fo lake advantage  of fhe preferential tariff. ��� The  tHj-anufacturors  themselves    are,  , L->y most writers, blamed1 for this  condition of afl'airs, which "-is in-  .stiinced a.s ��� another example- of  tlie lack of enterprise and'quick  sidaptibilit1,' to changing' trade  condition.s'to which   the  British  1 maniifacttirer  has" too  often   to  plead gu'ilty.  ��� ���  ���"    o  CJANAUA'S I.O.VAI/1'Y        AI'I'KI"-  > '     ���       ,.

The  Daily Telegraph observes for example: "The great thing is that  our kinsman in the Dominion  have'given one of the  strongest  ��� proofs in Iheir power of the rc-  iditv of the ties which bind Emr-  fand and  her colonies  toaether".  change of policy, but the Canadian electorate, to whom the  Government alone is responsible,  is fully alive to the significance  of the change.  DISHONEST    AI'I'LK   EXHOUTEKS.  ' The tremendous importance of  my excuse  the matter must be  for again referring to the folly  of certain Canadian fruit" exporters in the policy they are adopting, by, persisting in dishonest  shipping of fruits to England,  apples particularly. Before the  Agricultural Committee of the  House, two or three days ago,  officials of the Department declared that the cause of the present unsatisfactory condition of  the Canadian export apj)le trade  in the British markets was the  dishonest and suicidal practice  of, packing ��� barrels with poor  goods placing a* layer of prime  fruit at the top and bottom of  each barrel. The British trader  is not accustomed to that kind of  so called sharp practice,   and   i"  duced by the Minister of Finance  has met with an unexpected   obstacle in the  form   of  a   protest  from   the   Ontario   Government  that fhe proposed   act would  be  an infringement upon Provincial  rights.    It is contended that the  matter in question, i.s simply one  of property and-eivil right coming within the legislative authority of the Provinces, and covered by the principle that although  lhe Dominion can incorporate' a  company to do business as a  legal   right   throughout' Canada,  such company, when incorporated, must carry  on   its   business  subject to Provincial laws  as. to  many details covered by the bill  now before the. Federal   Parlia-  inen.' 'It is not   likely  that lhe  bill will be pressed   this   session  inasmuch as ten or, twelve of the  most important societies in Canada that would be affected by the  act. have formally petitioned the  Government to allow the matter  to stand until next year, in order  Sullivan Diamond Drills  Most  accurate  and   most  economical   prospecting   drills  made.

A BEALE  V  "Without asking us for rcciprpc-  J-ty,1 without demanding that we  should grant.a preference' in favor of Csinadian bread-stuffs for  instance,���which would only tax  the British worl*man's food.���  'they have, voluntarily given us  concessions of considerable value  out of sheer gratitude for goner-  a  \ ous treatment in the past. . This  is what has moved the hearts of  fhe ' English people, aiid has  stmong eft her things, led to the  renunciation of the Gorman and  Belgian people. The full fruits  of a policy, so liberal and patriotic as thi.s, wilh not'be reached  un mediately  he once  has , reason  to  distrust u> allow tho several grand lodges  one with whom he has  business  relations, he will'not only  very  peremptorily refuse to dp, business with that man again, but lie  is very naturally inclined  to  be  suspicious of all' traders  in -the  same  class.      The   Federal  Department of Agriculture has done  very much to advance the .inter  ests of those Canadian producers  desirous of developing the British market, but one' or   two experiences such as are referred to,  above, wi)l do more to kill business   than   a   year's  intelligent  and practical effort  by  the  Department can do  to  develop  it.  The greater  facilities  for  shipping, the improved accommodation   provided   by   tho  different  steamship companies, the excellent work done by the.  Minister  of Agriculture  last  summer' in  England,   to .interest, importers  in our-goods, -have  created  opportunities for,, trade better than  ever existed before,, but  as  Mr,"  Fisher pointed out to  the  Committee:���," All     these   improvements must meet with comparative,,   " defeat "     in      .obtaining  the       object     in      view,      "until our own apple producers and  puckers,   right   here   at   home,  adopt an honest system of packing and grading the fruit".

What   a   signiticent    comment  -such articles as Ihat from which  the above is an abstract, are upon  tlio criticism of Sir Clutrles Tup-,  por and many of his  supporters  in the House,  that  the  Government was guilty of unstalesman-  like disregard for  Canadian   interests when they inaugurated a  preferential policy without seeking to force from the old country  concessions in return.    As a stu-.  ,rlent of  history,   having  a   full  knowledge of that characteristic  spirit of independence which has  marked the past of  the empire,  Sir Charles knows that the  besl  possible way fo make John Bull  obdurate and unconciliatory is to  uMtimpt to force his  hand.     He  is a mighty good-natured old fellow, and can be led .almost  anywhere,'but if he ��� gets   the  idea  that am attempt is being made to  ooeree him,' he! is more .stubborn  than any mule yet created.    The  late Government failed to appreciate this fact in all the eighteen  "years' of power, .the  present7 administration "got.on" to Ttitroiii  the start, and not,only.-hinve the  i'jrttish  people   understood   and  ���vtvey thoroughly appreciated rthe  l'LJOGllKys   JX  Till-:   N'l'ST.

Reddy are at outs over their  lownsite schemes in British Columbia, and the first named has  sued the latter for $8000, says  the Spokesman Review. ,f Mr.  O'Farrell says that early in 1 rt!J7  he and others furnished funds to  Reddy to buy a. half interest in  the townsites of Moyie and Kim-  berly ,\vith the understanding that  O'Farrell was to have a tenth interest in the townsite of Moyie  and'an eight interest, in Kimber-  ly. Reddy took the title in his  own name, and it is said sold $0.  200 worth of lots in ..Moyie and  $8300 in'Kimberly. (t Later, it is  claimed, Reddy, by G. J. Reiner,  his attorney, in fact, "conspired  to clei'i-iu'd plaintiff of his, interest in the townsites, " and January 8, 1898, sold the half interest  in each town to P. J. McMahon.
