The Dominion productioh^of  gold for'1901 was *69,407,994, an  increase of nearly $5,000^000.  Copper showed a better tone  on the London market,'closed  15s higher, with futures at ��>v\..

Grant,  the manager of' the Moyie Lumber Company. The fire was  under control   in  a- short,time.  v J  Au investigation of tlie premises  showed that the fire was the  work of an incendiary, old 'rags  saturated with coal oil. shavings  and kindlings had been placed in  a closet under the stairs, and in  an alcove in the dining room: A  watch was kept upon the ' house  during the remainder, of , the  night. Constable Drutnmond is  keeping a strict, watch for the  incendiary, but as yet Has not  discovered any suspicious circumstances pointing toward the  discovery and arrest of the firebug.  SOME OF OUR MINIS.    ii  Placer   and, Quartz    Mine*   Which  Will Be  Worked ��� During th��  r Current Year.  Fort Steele, judging from' the  many promising mineral ,loca-'  tions in the vicinity is destined  to become a large aud flourishing mining centre. Very few  people realize the number and  value of the numerous gold  quartz and placer -; properties  within a radius of ten miles.  Up Wild Horse creek i.s oi  course, the most important mineral bearing region of this' locality.    Next comes tho mines situ-  big companies, and another out  fit  i.s engaged  in  drifting just-  back of the-lndian Agency close  to town.

"aurora.     ���   ��  Tom Rader one of the owners  of the Aurora, returned from  Spokane on Wednesday. The  owners are well pleased with  the condition of -the mine, and  intend to place it on a shipping  basis during the .coming summer  A   FIRE  BUG   IN  TOWN.  Within the past week Moyie  has been twice visited by firej1  and in the first case, it'is the  supposition, and in the second,  evident, that it is the work of a  tiro-bug.  Last Sunday evening about 8  o'clock a bright light was noticed  in the upper story of Mr.  Nugents house, and in a few  minutes the issuing ol* dense  volumes ol smoke plainly showed  that the building was on fire.  Tn a short time every man in  town was on the scene, and, as  the water mains werci'rossen, the  bucket brigade formed a line  from the lake to the burning  building. .As. the Nugent house  was doomed,   all efforts  of the  Hon. ' Colonel Prior,  Minister of  Mines,"who will  ii a i  contest the-Victoria by-election,  against E? ��� V/Bodwell. ��� , *  Political Note*. u  / In ho.election campaign in the  city of Victoria have the follow-  ings of opposing candidates organized more quickly than in the  tight' at present .going on between Cot. E.,'G. Prior and Mr.  E. V. Bbdwell.  Hon. C." Ci; Pooley has beeu  elected speaker of the legislative1  assembly/ succeeding the late  Hon. J. P: Booth.  It is reported that Win'. Sloan,  Nanaimo, will run for the seat in  the legislature made vacant by  the death of the late speaker Mr.  Booth.   ^  During' the' debate on the  speech from the throne, Tatlow  of Vancouver accused Premier  Dunsmuir of betraying his former supporters in failing to ' reconstruct the cabinet. Tlie  premier denied this and the- lie  was passed.  It can be readily imagined that  the*. Bodwell-Prior bye-election  will'be of a torid naturei  fire brigade were directed ���towards the saving of the adjoin  ing building, which was accomplished. Mr. Nugcnt's loss will  include building, furniture and  $280 in gold. Subsequent investigation as to the.cause of the  fire indicates that the house was  robbed aud then set on fire.-  HERE'S  ANOTHER.  Again    on   Tuesday   evening:  A Wave of Patriotism.  When   Sir.   John   Macdonald  conceived    and    advocated' his  ���'National Policy," he saw clearly tho necessity of   his country;  when  he   used that necessity to  help him bacic Lo political powe.-  he wasas much the politician as  the patriot..   .Today, all Canada  is uniting in that polii-y and   the  trade  question  is  being eliminated from party politics.    Jf this  merges the two parties into  one  and abrogates party government  so   much   ihe   worse   for   party  government.     It i.s much' better,  even when rts.suIts are  the same,  to place country bul'oro   politics.  ���Canadian Magazine.  Hotel Arrivals.  IMPERIAL:  Fred Morrow, Calgary' ,  K. J.

Melton,  ated on Tracy creek, and any  one looking at'-the map of this  section of South East Kootenay  would be astonished at the number of locations, and how they  are distributed, on every creek  from Bull river to Sheep creek.  Starting from the town of Fort  Steele and following up the bank  of Wild Horse creek, a- distance  of two miles of  rolling country  is ci'ossed  before  reaching the  foot of the mountains, where the  Wild  Horse,,passes   through " a  canyon in the first range -of  the  foothills.'   Right  at the'mouth'  of    this    canyon    considerable  placer  work  has been  done,in  the past, aud there is no, doubt,  with the present improved' machinery,     and     the   additional  knowledge gained by  past experience, a large extent -of"Jthis  ground  would-'be found" "to pay  well, and not only that, there, is  every probability,of striking old  channels with"' rich, pay sttoaks.  Crossing over the first range  of  foot hills, the formation of .which  is;3 slate   and quartzite,   and on  which' there are several locations  of gold quartz, we come to"*Brewj.  ery. creek, which flows into Wild  Horse from  the  north,  and on  the   east   bank,   iu    the- angle  formed by"'t=and the main creek,  is the placer ground controlled  by Robert Dore which has payed  well in  the past and has every  prospect of turning out  well in  the future.    There are a number  of gold and copper propositions  with    good ���' indications,     well  worthy of being developed   in  this vicinity.     The Grace Dore,  a nickel property is located near  the mouth of Brewery creek.  About   a   mile   up  the creek  from   Brewery,   is -the   ground  owned by the Invicta Gold   Mining   Company,   and   the   upper  portion of  the holdings of this  company is leased "to a Chinese  company who have been continuously engaged in  hydraulicking  for the  past five years, taking  out good pay'.     Opposite to this  is  the  Nip & Tuck, which was  recently .purchased    by   David  Griffith from Vancouver parties,  and  which  has  paid during the  past year not only the  purchase  price    of    the    property,     but  several  thousand    dollars   over  and above it.   Above the Invicta  ground,   a  syndicate formed   in  Fort Steele, are engaged in sinking  for  the old channel of Wild  Horse, and from present appearances  there  is every  indication  of their meeting with success  as  the    gravel    now   encountered  prospects  well    in    tlie   yellow  metal.      Adjoining   these   properties,    is   ground  worked   by  two or more Chinese companies:  that the ground is a paying proposition   is   bourne   out by   the  faet that,   ic   is   worked   kvery  year,   but  it  is  hard to find out  the extent of the  outjmt,   when  asked, how the ground was paying, the celestial will reply, "Me  no ^sabby".       Aside   from   the  companies     above     mentioned,  there are  several  small outfits  working on  both   sides   of the  AMONG  THE QPAKTZ  MINES.  On.the east side of Wild Horse  and overlooking the placer mines  are  situated a large number of  gold quartz  properties,   among  the most prominent are the Dar-  denelles   group   upon   which   a  large  .amount   of   development  has beeu performed.    Au extension     "to '    the       Dardenelles  on      the ���   "east     is     the     Tit  for   Tat   group.      On the  west  side of the creek, also overlooking tbe placers   are 'the   Bald  Mountain  and = Doherty   groups  of claims., gold propositions upon  which  a  large'amount of work  has been performed.  '  On Boulder creek  a  tributary  of Wild  Horse,   are < found   the  Dupont and Big Chief group of  mines.

The.company will be enabled to fulfill in every respect  the purposes for which it was  organized, and if so desired it  will be'enabled to offer its securities for sale on the, exchange in  the same manner and with the  same freedom now enjoyed by a  scoi'e of commercial institutions  coming under Canadian charters.
