It would seem  ' io the average onlooker that  someone'was keeping- tlie market  well supplied at the present' ruling prices. With shipments being, made unci the amount of ore  J,loeked out, the stock is worth  more than the ruling quotations.  Tlie property bids fair to equal  the North Star mine, the, stock  -Of, which is quoted in the neigh-  ijorhood of $l./l(>. To be sure  the Sullivan is stocked for -$5,-  300,000. w-hile the North Star i.s  $1,000,000 capital.

The group consists of the  Searchlight, Louise.

Tlie upper tunnel is iii ore  .showing galena and some copper,  the other two copper and silver.  In the various openings there is  ore of a shipping grade on the  dumps".

Elsewhere will be found a brief,  description of the Carbonate  group of claims at the head of  Sheep creek. The following additional information has been  furnished. As has been.,stated  there are three openings on the  property in the first the tunnel  is in 40 feet and. in running this  tunnel about 50 tons of shipjring  ore was extracted, this ore  carries lead and copper.-  The second lead shows about  one foot of copper' carbonates,,  there isfive tons of this class of  ore on the dump.  The third lead ���shows a strip  of ribbon quartz carrying" gray,  copper, lead and iron, and is  very rich, there1 is two tons on  the dump. ,  r A new tunnel will be- started  on this lea'd further down the  mountain. . ��� '  Mr. Larson brought down  about 50 pounds of ore from, the  big lead this shows a quantity of  copper and ..galena. He also  brought about 50 pounds of cop-  per'carbonates and a sample of  the ribbon quartz. "All of these  samples may be seen at The  Pkospkctok office.  ough  says:  '���Our party ha.i just returned  to Peterborough after . a prospecting trip in the mountains  about Bugaboo creek.

"which   will   be  continuously worked next year.  Messrs.. Yates,   Williams  and  McKinnon have iflso  done  considerable   work  on  a   group  of  claims   in   the    DeCella  -basin;  which are looking well.  Mining Notes.  J. Y. Kesler came down from  the Star group -on Tuesday.  When asked how the heat affected him up there he said: "We  do not know what hot weather  is. The snow is still on the  ground and bids fair to remain  for some time.    ���-  Mr. William Bleasdell and G.  Donnelly started on, a prospecting trip last Tuesday. They  took with them a pack train  loaded with supplies.    ���  There is a rumor that". Miller  and the Swede boys have made  a big strike on Skookum Chuck.  it is said there*,is three feet of  copper carbonates on the claim.  A. H. Gracey who was scheduled to be in Fort Steele some  time ago to make an examination  of the Dibble group of mines,  left Nelson on Wednesday night  for Kuskanook to inspect a mineral claim in that vicinity.  The Pedro and cRuby Silver  groups of mines in the Lardeau  country ��� were recently sold to  Philadelphia parties for $150,000.

If  sufficient attention will be given  to tlie roads of the district, it is  sure'that many,mines   would -be  developed to a point where they  could ship ore, and the  increas-  ed, .revenue  'from   prospecting  would,more than pay   the  interest  on  the  amount   mentioned.

At present taxation is light,  and.il is. doubtful if anyone  would object, were taxes "doubl  ed, if they could be assured, that  there was to be a largely increased expenditure upon roads  and trails. "It is said that Mr.  Robertson, the provincial mineralogist, i.s strongly in favor of  an inspector of mineral claims',  and should his idea be carried  out aud an Inspector appointed  for each mineral district, the  same officer could act as "superintendent of roads, trails and  bridges.. "  The policy heretofore carried  out of insufficient appropriations  for this necessary work, has resulted in unsatisfactory services  in that none of the work is permanent,' and in the course of a  few years larger sums will have  been expended, than if the work-  had been properly done iu the  beginning.  Of cotr.se it may be  said  that  the   revenues   of   the   Province  would not permit of this  expenditure in the past.    This mayor  may not be true. The conditions, j  however, are now changed, and.  localizing the  statements made!  it is a f act th at th e .revenues, from  South  East  Kootenay  are  now  sufficient to .warrant more liberal appropriations for needed internal improvements of the dis  frict. ���..���������  day evening.

As  United      States   , Minister     Conger  Cables his Government.  Washington, D. C, July 20.���  The Chinese minister has just  received a .cipher cable from  Minister Conger at Pekin. It is in  the State, Department cipher and  is transmitted through the Tsung  Li Yamen and the Shanghai Tai  Toi.'  It contains'about fifty words  and is signed in English with  the name Conger. ��� Tho minister  has taken il to the State Department.  1 At 2:40 i\. ni. Minister Wu  handed tho Conger message to  Secretary Hay. No doubt was  expressed by the Slate Department otticials as to the authenticity of the message. Mr. Conger's telegram is as follows:  "In British Legation under  continued shot aud shell from  Chinese troops. ���Quick relief  only can prevent massacre. "  The message i.s not" dated, but  it is understood it was sent from  Pekin on the 18th.  July '20.��� Two  bearing tidings of  the unfortunates 'beset in the  British Legation in Pekin, were  received this morning. .'  , First came a short, sharp word  from Consul General Gooduow  at-Shanghai to an officer of the  State Department. He gave notice that Minister Conger had, at  last been' heard from' directly,  and that his words- were on the  way to the State Department.  Scarcely had the cheering  news reached Secretary Hay before Minister Wu came tearing  down the asphalt streets from his  Legation in, his automobile,  bearing' in his own hands the  serious message from Mr. Con-  ger.  Mr. Wu himself was ignorant  of, what he badhr his^'liaud because the message was in"' the  State Department cipher, an apparently meaningless mass of  figures and "periods.  After the work of, translating  the cipher into English had been  completed Secretary Hay betook  himself to the War Department  to convey the news to Secretary-  Root and to Secretary Long,  who were together at tlie time.  After a short consultation in  Secretary Root's office, Secretary Long upon emerging' said  heir   liiuv   before cookn.ij- him.    Minister Wu.  in this   city,   declare.-, '-hat    tlio  power.-,   have   intentionally    delayed going to tiio rescue of the  endangered   diplomat-"   in   order  lo let   their  murder  furnish   au  excuse for partition.     This is of  course, absurd, but it  serves  to  call attention lo the fact that the  allies of Tientsin are more occupied in keeping their   hands   on  their hip pockets  and   watching  each other than they are iu moving forward loyally to the  suppression of   the "Boxers.     Even  [ by concerted action   the ��� powers  will certainly not  have a  walkover.      For instance it is known  beyond doubt that -k'O.OlMJ  German rifles aud no one knows how  many more were   imported   into  China   within    the   past   year.  Twenty thousand Europeans aud  Americans, besieged iu Tientsin  are'gradually losing ground, al-j  though lighting behind intrench-;  I  ow is  time  During the last two months the recent development of the district around the North  Star and Sullivan mines and the extraordinary discoveries made would guarantee the  welfare of three or four towns. As there is  only our  metits.   The Boer war has shown  how difficult it i.s for the bravest  men to capture trenches defended by arms of precision.-    How  large an army then   it   is asked  will  l)e   required   to    turn , the  tables and drive  the  unnumbered Chinese from their defenses?  It is believed here that this  will  be done sooner or later but when  it-is  accomplished,   what  then?  Will Russia and France attempt  a grab game.     If.Europe cannot  settle the Chinese question without war among  the, powers our  civilization isbut a sham and  a  pretence.  Advertise the Town.  Fort Steele needs advertising  in the outside world.     It is easy-  enough to convince a person, as  common reason is the master  of  any argument, that Fort  Steele  is the best point in  South  East  Kootenay   for.   investment,   but'  what needs to be done is to draw  those   people   into  the  district,  who have money to seek investments.    - There is no bettor way  of doing this   than  by " advertising to  the  outside  world  what  the town of Fort Steele'is today.  Elk Biver.  The Apache mineral claim is  situated on the south fork of Elk  river. The ' development work,  consists of about 200 feet of tunnels and drifts. The, vein is  twenty'feet in width.

That is to'say, .;'it- appears���. that'  the powers, instead  of  working  loyally-   for  the suppression  of  what is undoubtedly  a  terrible  danger to the whole world have  already begun to split  into  factions oyer the chances for territorial spoils, heedless of-the-fact  that they have first to make sure  that there will be any  spoils  to  Perry Creek.  The mines in   the   vicinity  of  Perry creek are rapidly  coming  to the  front.     This  portion  of  the district is noted as  being a  gold region.

Report of the  Inland   Revenue  JOe-
pnrtment. - Chief Analyst Rec-   '
ommends that Sale of Alum
Baking- Powders he  '
The Inland Ht-venne Depart-]
ment has issued iis report on
Baking Powders (Bulletin No.
0'-'). ll contains analyses of Jf>()
fs'iui'plcs of powders bought of
dealers and manufacturers in the
Dominion, S"> per cent of which
are found to be alum mixtures.
In view of the large proportion of
this class of powder. Chief Analyst
Macfarlane recommends that legal proceedings be taken against
parties selling them, on ^the
ground that they are unhealthy
articles of i'ood,__ and believes
° that their sale will be condemned by the Courts.   *«
The analyses rwere  made  by
the the Assistant Analyst,  Mr.
A. McGill. who "hilly  discusses
1he injurious nature'of alum, in
baking   powders.      Mr.   McGill
adds:    ''In my last report I ex
pressed my conviction, based on
experimental evidence, that alum'
jn baking powders is dangerous
io health.     The' large  mass  of
evidence since accumulated  has
' more strongly convinced   me'of
the correctness of that   opinion.'
My personal opinion is decided ly
against the use of alum.     The
' health of a nation is too serious
a matter to be imperilled lightly,
~iind if it be - impossible, to- procure prohibitory legislation, if is
desirable that manufacturers  of
alum powders should be required to state the contents  on  the
Professor   Putt an,   of  McGill
College, Montreal,   who  made  a
series of experiments on the  di
gestibility of bread   baked   with
alum powders,' is quoted 'as  follows:     -'The unanimous verdict
of my,.experiments is that alum
powders introduce  into  a  form
of food of universal use.   agents
which   are   detrimental   to   the
functional activity of tho_diges-
tive ferments.   They must therefore be prejudicial to health, and
the only  course   is  lo  carefully
avoid thorn."
Following are names of baking-
powders containing, alum sold in
this vicinity, given in  the  analysts report:—

Fort Steele,
ie development of the mines, i
the  building, of  the  north  and J
south    railway,   the  starting  of
now industries  in   this section,
should make Fort Steele one  ol
the important towns   of  British
Columbia.        ..
Port Sleele is most desirably
located. In fact, there is no
-own' iu all of the Kootenays
which can compare with it.
Everyone who visits the town
speaks of its beautiful location as
tin ideal summer resort. There
are 'splendid drives, mountains
to'elimb. with good wagon roads
leading to the foot, of the mountains and trails by which their
summits may be reached. There
is good fishing in the mountain
streams and in the hundred lakes
in the Kootenay valley. »
Mount Fisher rises gradually
9,2f>0 feet and is less than a dozen miles fronfFort Steele. It is
said, that the foot' of man has
never touched its summit, this
can readily be believed. Viewed
from Port Steele the mountain
appears rugged and its western,
slope impassable, seemingly like
an immense wall. -      ■    .
A visitor to Port Steele need
.not go more-than ten* miles to
see placer and quartz mining.
There are.many mines in; which
active development is going on
and nearly all easy of access.
.-Fort Steele is an ideal spot
and before many years will, be
as well-known as' Rossland nand
Nolson.   '

a fortnight" ago the consuls at
Chefoo and Tientsin were 'authorized to spend any amount
necessary to get news from Pekin
and ten days ago Lord Salisbury received news that four
trusted Chinese hadskirted'from
as many di Herein points.' all instructed to get into the British
legation and bring dispatches if
the place was found fo be still
standing. None of , those men
have returned, but if is confidently believed that some of

on the Crow'.- Xe.-1 line east of
Wardnor, and traversing the
valley of the Kootenay to Canal
Fiat, and from tlienee down the
Columbia to Golden on tlie main
line of the Canadian Pacific railway, must be apparent to the
most superficial observer, and
an absolute necessity to the Canadian Pacific, not only as connecting the,vCrow's,Ne.-t with the
main line, but as opening up
a country of vast resources, bolli mineral and agricultural. Such a lino will make the

The Steele House
the best  for   general
in fact analysis has proven it to
. be  better   for   steam   purposes
<>    than the product ,of  any   mines'
on the Pacific  coast,   and   it   is ■
superior to the soft coal" of Ohio,
or Pennsylvania,. >
, Tn looking at the matter  from ,
a commercial standpoint it would I
seem a wise move to  build   the!
road.    Even'though  there'were
nothing   to   transport  but  coal
the tonnagc'would be enormous.
' Aside from coal there is a' vir-
■ gin field of mineral which would
be tapped by Ihi.s  road  a   large
■ number of mining prospects
would be  developed   into   mines
'under the stiuiulus,of a railway.
Some of the properties'are sufficiently developed io ship- ore.
This mineral'Held extends from
the    in tenia lional   boundary   to
"Golden and beyond.
■ ' 'The ''{.'.sources of the K'oote,-
liiiy and Coliirnhui valleys' are
not unknown .to the officials . of
the Canadian Pacific.    This-was
. made manifest when the Board
of Trade of Fun Steele mot Mr.
Shaughni'Ssy a few months ago.
, One of the member* of the board
was tolling him of the resources
of the ICooteuay valley, 'when
Mr. Rliaughncssy interrupted
him and,said, *'l know", and
then proceeded to5tell things
thai even the oldest member of
lhe board who has resided in the
valley for over thirty years, was
not aware of. it, i.s amazing tlie
amount of information possessed
by Mr. Shaughnessy.
There are several things which
may hasten construction. It is
said that the charter fo build the
, road expires this year and in order to hold tho charter construction must commence at once. It
i.s also said that construction
will commence in a short time in
order to head off the Great
Northern which ir i.s said nervously contemplate extending one
of their" Knot may branched
across tlie mountains from the
Lardo country to the rich mining campn in l.in Windermere
district. The Great Northern i.s
aggessive and iu building thi-
extension are after tonnage,
which the mineral dcwlnpmeiii
of that section will »hor!ly furnish. Still another reason assigned is that the present trouble
in China will create a demand
for Crow's Xe.st coal which must
be met. Thi> has been explained.
The physical feature-, of the
country so far as call be learned,
m ake rail way bu 11 ding com para -
tively easy, ' .Recent reports."are
to, the effect, that V nowhere, between ; Sand creek and Wild
'Horse ■ creel", a distance; of -ii

fifty feet.. One railroad man said
lie would contract' to build thai
portion of the rojid in 20 day.-,.

j     It-would then be  the  duty  of
I the''Board of Trade, to see that a
more favorable rating .is- obtained from the Board  of  Fire  Un-
derwriters. ,'

One of the   Most   Promising  .Camps
in BritisrTColumbia. .
The' extensive development
y.'ork'done during'the'past three
years 'on the many mineral locations on Pyramid creek has
shown beyond any manner., of
doubt that a large and .prosperous mining'camp will be established on that creek. The most
extensive operators there are
the Pyramid-Kootenay Co.. who
have constantly employed a large
number of men. The company
own fourteen claims on the
creek, aud'on each of them close
to one thousand dollars worth of
work has been done, while' on
several three or four times that
amount has been performed.
The Comstock so far seems lo
show the greatest lead. The
mineral is copper and silver, the
pa^vstreak is not less than twelve
feet .wide aud of extraordinary
richness. The Granite. Washington and Milton claims are the
next most important: they all
carry galena aad copper -sulphides.
The Rio Tinto Mining Company of Spain, which owns the
lunreM copper property in the
world, is, also the real owner of
a moist valuable group of mines
on this creek.
Messrs. Petty and Yates have
a irroup of ten or more claims on
what is known as Dccella basin.
The main lead through the Florence and Ruth claims is fully
forty feel in width. On the
Apex. Rex and Standard the
vcin^ are from fourteen lo twenty
feet wide The ore on the Florence and Ruth i.s a pyrrhotite of
co]jp**r. and on the other claims
the ore i.s a galeini carrying copper. Mr. Yates wil ha force of
men is at: present: engaged, in do-,
vftlopmenl work.;1'
Messrs. Petty,' Longley and
McKiunoi'i have a group of, ten
e'laidis. a,l. Camp Longley. On
all ..of ■"those.'■claim's there i.s a
good .showing, of copper ore and
carbonates.. ' Those ledges are
large.' On the Ross claim the
ledge is over fifty feet,' and - the
Decella has a 20-foot vein.
