Sir,. ■
The report of the Provincial
Mineralogist, on the oil fields of
the Flathead is , in many ways
misleading dland'-v because"\"vMr.
Robertson, a .stranger in a wild'
country^ailed'fq-find more than'
the-^oildseepages'-'on the much'
staked off "Kish-e-neh-na'' and
Sage creeks; he at once concludes that they ' are the-only
ones known. He reports too
that he failed to find oil in a spot
where  Professor Schwyn found
?;Had the0. Provincial Mineralogist expressed a wish, I would
have sent over one of my sons,
who would have taken him to
many, oil seepages, and have
shown him the spot Professor
S.el\vyn'mentions and which still
gives'1'out oil. ' There is one
place near this latter .".point
where by hollowing out theshale
a basin is formed that-at once
fills with a clear straw colored
crude oil. The boulders on
.many, of,the creeks are saturated
with oil, showing """Sow ' very
Targe, must be the entire seepage
of oil in the vicinity of these two,
creeks, and in some other adjacent "ridges in the section of
the Flathead valley north of the
Boundary. \ first visited the oil
seepage in 1872, it had been
known to the Indians for years
before that time.
The „mistakes Mr. Robertson
made in getting' into 'the Flathead valley show how necessary
a guide is. Mr. Robertson describes the route he, followed as
the blazes of Mr. Ritchie, who
knew less of the country than-
Mr. Robertson. Had Mr.
Robertson gone a little to the
south he would have reached
the Flathead valley without going over a mountain, in place of
the ,7000 ft ridge he went over.
ATIow pass is also.mentioned and
shown on the map where no pass
exists. Moose creek,; a large
tributary of Wigwam' -river;
about the spot shown heads in a
large basin with high precipi
tous and impassable mountains
to the exit.
I hope to refer at greater
length to these oil seepages in
another issue of your paper if
you can find space for a matter
that so much concerns Southeast
Koqteiiay. . ■ S   a ■ .'.'   ..- -^     ■_

THIS year will without doubt be the beginning of an era of
prosperity in mining'matters in Southeast .Kootenay.
Heretofore we have had but three "/producing mines in operation
and during the past three years these mines have been laboring
under a disadvantage occasioned by low prices in silver and lead.
' With such,mines as the St. Eugene. North Star and Sullivan
we have been able to show and prove to- the satisfaction of capital-
ists^that we possess valuable mineral'deposits, that the placer
mines of the district were productive, and that the coal areas were
unsurpassed by any coal deposits in the Province, we may say oil
the American continent.
- The mining season of 190-1 opens under favorable.circum-
stances. The St. Eugene has commenced active operations, a
new and important strike has been made at the North Star mine,
and ^inside? of (.^thirty 'days', operations will-* be Presumed at the
Sullivan mine.   , ', '   '
Two important industries ai*e now being developed.     The"immense waterpower of Elk and-Bull, river will soon^be: harnessed,

electric plants installed, and power and light furnished to  the 'industries of the Crow's Nest Pass and Kootenay valley.
r ' r '
Deep placer-mines on Wild Horse creek, Perry and Weaver
creeks, and Bull river will be operated on a large scale, and
several new companies will open ground*on Skookum Chuck and
Finley creek, arid this year we may,expect a large increase in the
production of placer gold. .        '   d'
The commencement of active operations by the Sullivan Mining Co., and the building ofjbhe smelter at Marysville will prove
strong factors "in thed'eveloprhent of-the mineral resources of  the

i-'i? TheI installation of power plants<'at-Eikp and Bull river, will
furnish -power and light to commercial industries all over the
district. The building of a smelter at Elk river fallsiwill give to
mine owners, ,who have but a limited amount of capital, a home
market for their ore. , _      .
The big hematite iron deposits situated on Bull river will re-]
ceive .considerable attention this summer . - A ..large mumber of
these .locations .have been Crown granted during "the.past year.

new industries in active operation, the immediate construction of
the Kootenay Central railway, several new properties added to the
list of shipping mines, we may this year look forward  to a  large

JOHN MEAN.  Dated Fort Steele May IstdlilOI.    .20  ODhe ijfrotfpector:  SATURDAY. J UN 13 11, 1904  .  ' Electricity in Mines.  ; Tho report of the British Committee appointed by the Home  Secretary to inquire into the use  oi' electricity in mines was issued  early in the year, and will be a  valuable document to colliery  owners and managers. ,y  Tho ,s Com mission has , found  that electric/.purrehts for use in  mines are broadly classified into  ''continuous" and "alternating,"'  and'observes" that the tendency'  in America is to use continuous  current especially, for haulage  by locomotives. For generation  aud transmission the alternating  current is more,, desirable, but  for motors which are frequently  started and slopped, it finds that  up to the present time a continuous current has been the most  satisfactory.  It'.'is the opinion of the com-  mission that electric apparatus  which is properly set up and  used presents.no such dangerous  features as would justify the  prohibition of its use; it fully  considers the points , of broken  electric lamps with resulting  danger of,.sparks, ,of winding  from shafts, of electric coal  cutters, etc., etc.. before forming  the conclusions which the report"  expresses.  ���-The question of what voltage  should be employed has becu  considered by the Commission  which deals with the evidence  submitted, and has also carefully  gone into the matter of what restrictions should be permitted as  to the voltage of the current at  the point where tho electricity  is to be applied. The report is  followed by ( a .lengthy set of  rules which are proposed by the  Commission for regulating the  use of electricity. These rules  are too long for reproduction,  but tnoir general effect is rather  that ol' instructing or informing  the workmen than of imposing  restrictions against the use .ol  the electric current. As a matter  of fact perusal of the report conveys the idea that the Commissioners are of the opinion that  future legislation . on the use of  electricity should be along the  lines of rendering such use safe*,  and not "with vadtendency to r<��-  strict the' application of the  electric fluid. '.,-������������       A  The general treatment of this  subject as made in the. report  suggests the general principles:  that the plant should be of good  quality and so placed as to insure.'its safety from lire or  sudden shocks; that the plant  should be under  the charge  of  '1'IIK MAST*:II MECHANICS 1'IJKK TAK  SOAP heals anil tioftcus the skin, wliilo  promptly cloatisiiiK it of grease, oil. rust. etc.  Invaluable ror mechanics, dinners, sportsmen.

Albert Toilet Soap Co., Mfrs Montreal.  cuiiipeK'iit persons whose work  should be periodically supervised: thai all Ihe apparatus  should be inspected at stated  times and tested as to its  efficiency and safety: that  wherever and whenever electrical machinery is used in gaseous  mines, all such machinery should  be so enclosed as to prevent any  gas being reached by a spark,  should a machine become dirty  or deteriorated so as to generate  sparks. ��  The Rules proposed by the  Commission are, as a whole,  elementary, and exceedingly  simple of observance to anyone  at all lamiliar with electricity.  Rule No. ii is somewhat exiended  and governs the conditions under  which' low. medium, or high,  pressure vol 1 age may be employed. The Commission has  taken low pressure voltage as  not in excess of !!")(> volts;  medium, permits of any voltage  between,f2ri0 and i),">0: high voltage means any current between  050 and 3000* volts. hi the  section dealing with switches,  fuses and cut-outs, all open type  switches, fuses aud cut-outs are  prohibited, and in the section  dealing with motors is the rule  that the motor must be stopped  if the presence of fire damp is  indicated^,   ', y r ^ I  It is rather amusing to mining  men hero, who have also operated iu B.C., to hear an occasional kicker from that province discourse on the bad B.C. mining  laws.
