The days arc past for tying up  properties on 'long time bonds  and cxhorbifant prices in this  district.  Owners have for the most part  decided to take reasonable prices  on short time.bonds.  , Capital is rapidly developing  the district and the present,  season will see some large trans  actions.  Engineers who have recently  examined, the great mineral  ledges on the headwaters of Wild  Horse creek declared that in a  very few years t he , riches oi  South Africa _\vill here be discounted.

Railway Matters.���Visited  the   Coal  '  Mines.���Items of Interest.'"  Railway matters'in South East  Kootenay were the subject of  strong.representations made by  those favoring a railway to the  south. ";,  An announcement extremely  gratifying to consumers' of coal  and coke was'madq, by',-Manager  Drury oi' 'the' St. Eugene'mine,  which* was Jto the effect that if a  charter was granted d'or a railway to.the south, thus -enabling  the Coal Company to erect the  700 ovens at  Michel, and 160 at Fernie, the  company would, guarantee to  supply the smelters with all the  coke they require at 2i> cents per  ton less than they are now paying. ��� ' .  VISITED   THE JJOAL  MINES.  ��� Editor Simpson, of the Cranbrook Herald, in company with  W. Kay; Chas Armstrong and  Ceorge Levassur, visited the  coal mines on Friday of last  week. Tho party had an experience which they won't forget, after having been through  tho working, ' which extends  more than a half mile under  ground, Editor Simpson suggested thai the mine could be best  seen from the outside, and when  a, shot was tired from an adjoining chamber, the whole party  were of tho same opinion.  Saturday last was pay day at  I he mine.  "no bonus being required" construction to commence at once.  This is a business proposition  and should be granted.       <-,  A'leak has been discovered, in  the C. P. R. treasury, which is  having a good effect on several  Nelson publications.  Tlie C. P. ii. announces a reduction of 20% on local passenger rates from coast points "not  bad for, a grasping monopoly"  says the Nelson Miner. Will the  Miner state how the "grasping  monopoly" is treating the Kootenay towns on the Crow's Nest  line.    No reduction there.  WILL SEND DELEGATES.

At Fort Steele they will .secure  horses.', to  take themselves and  t i ��  supplies, through the' land of  promise. There is good land in  the Kootenay valley, and the C.  P.

' Give  the settlers a square deal, and  let\them' 'make a home in South  East Kootenay; is what should  be, done by those wlio .hold' the  lauds in this district.  The C. P. Ii. has offered to  build the Coast -Kootenay railway without .a bonus from the  government. They forgot to  mention when they will build,-  probably in a year or two, when  they will want a bonus, all rivals  being then out of the contest.  Englands New Grand Master.

C, March 22.���The  .Nelson Miner ��� today publishes  the following special railway  notice. Ottawa, March 21.���At  a meeting of the railway committee today, a> bill of the British  Columbia Southern, railway,  which is really the C. P. Ii.  evoked lively criticism from the  western members., The company sought power to build  branch 'lines throughout the  Province, whenever .authorized  by the Governor in Council, and  to get a five years extension of  time to complete' theM road.  Western members protested en-  oi'getically against allowing the  company to blanket the whole  Province of ��� British Columbia  with a Charter, as it had been  done in Manitoba, and stifle the  development of the country.  Finally Mr. Blair's suggestion  to give the company one years  extension iu which to begin  work and 1o limit its power to  build a branch line from Fort  Steele to Golden was adopted.  J. C. Gemmel, solicitor for the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, on being interviewed by  your correspondent today said,  that he had no word of any  settlement between his company  and the C. P. Ii. whereby the  latter was to stop opposition to  fhc Fernie branch.  RATES REDUCED.  Cut   of  Twenty   Per Cent   on   Coast  Division.���No Cut  on Crow's  Nest Line.  The C. P.

Will Urge the Dominion 'Government  to Assist Mining in General.  A special meeting of ihe Fort  Steele Board of Trade' was hold  in the rotunda of the Imperial  hotel. The meeting was called  for the-'purpose of discussing  matters of importance, the necessities of the district at largo. J.  A. .Harvey, president of the  Board, occupied the chair, and  in his opening address, stated  that the object of the meeting  was to consider the proposal to  memorialize the Dominion Government in relation 1o the establishment of a lead refinery in*  the Kootenays. ' Mr. W. W..  Beaton, representing the Kaslo  Board of Trade was introduced,  and said "that he had been ap  pointed as a representative of  the Kaslo Board of Trade, to  'visit the towns in South East  Kootenay, for the purpose of  organizing a delegation to visit  Ottawa ' and lay, before the  powers that be all the requirements of0 the-' Kootenays , as' a  whole. He also stated that local  matters of vital importance  would be ii considered. The  Boards of Trade in West Kootenay -had inaugurated a 'movement, .that' was' of especiafim-  portance, towards the establishment of a lead refinery in' Canada, which everyone here, interested in mining, knew would be  the making of 'the Mining, industry: it would be the means of  Increasing , *'the capacity^ of  smelters already 'constructed.,  and the erection of others of a  still larger capacity, more active  and increased development, >and  an increased mineral output,  which means increased prosperity to the Kootenays." To  send small delegations was a  mistake, the only way to attract  attention was to send a large and  o  imposing delegation of the business men from 'all parts of the  Kootenays. to Ottawa, and place  the requirement and .,necessities  of the country before the government.  ��� W. R. Ross,.li. L.T. Galbraith  J. T. Laidlaw and C. F.  Hannington addressed the meeting, declaring that the importance of establishing reduction  and refining works in the  country was,a necessity,' as was  also an opeu door railway policy  and that in sending a delegation  to Ottawa a step in the right  direction was being made, and  that the government would more  readily recognize . these necessities when they beheld a large  delegation of the leading business men of the Kootenays  marching into Ottawa.  The following- resolutions  were proposed by C. F. Hannington, seconded by .1. T. Laidlaw:  Whekeas, lead mining in British Columbia has grown into a  most important industry, giving  employment to a large population in the Kootenays, and increasing the general prosperity:  and,  Wiieueas. no means of refining base bullion exists today in  Canada, thereby necessitating  the shipment fo the United  States of the lead product of  Canadian smelters, and a much  higher rate for refining lead,  than formerly existed is now being demanded by the American  Smelting    and    Refining   trust;  and, .'.-.��� '  Whereas, : the establishment  of a lead refinery, readily accessible to'the smelters of, the lead  producing  districts,   would   un  doubtedly lead to the erection of  more furnaces: and!  Therefore be it resolved,  that in the opinion of this Board  the establishment of a luad refinery, in, an accessible part of  Canada is the1" surest and best  means of fostering and encouraging the lead mining industry of  British Columbia: and that this  Board most respectfully urges  upon the Dominion Government,  that it aid and assisi this new  and important industry, until  fully established, a bounty be  graiifed for three years of &5 per  ton on pig lead, the. product from  ores mined, smelted and refined  in1 Canada.  'I'llis Board would also point  out. that in British Columbia  fuel is cheap, and of excellent  quality, that it is an undoubted,  advantage to have a refinery  near-the smelters, ^and the pig  lead refined in.British" Columbia  could compete iu the markets of  tho Orient, which would , not ��� be  the case with lead refined in the'  oast. -   ' '        '  The '. above   resolutions   were  carried   without    a    dissenting-  voice.       , ' ,  M. A. Hauvey, Pres.  E. A.-Er/roN, Sec  It was moved by W. R. Ross,  seconded by ii. L. T.

'.Harvey.*   -Galbraith.'  Ross and, of hers,   addressed  the"  Board in regard to an opeiv door  policy to railways, that the  disr  tricf required adequate means of  transportation.     that     a    railway ' through^   the ' Kootenay  valley  north  and, south  was  a"  necessity:  and that  this  Board  favored   and   requested   that a  cnartcr be gra.uted to tho Crow's  Nest Southern railway.  ���   li.    L.   T.   Galbraith, , moved,  that a vote of thanks be tendered  to W. W.

The motion was carried  unanimously. ,        '   ,  ',  Mr. Beaton in a  few  remarks  thanked the Board, as the repre-'  sentative of the Kaslo  Board of  '  Trade.

IN a question of so vital impor  tance to South East Koote- j  nay as railway ��� transportation; I  are the people of this district to  be considered: or ai-e they to be  ignored? Much has been written  and spoken concerning, the "immense   mineral   wealth' of  this  i k o  ,  district, and this  fact  has   been  demonstrated and proved by the  i" largely increased and constantly  increasing output* of silver-lead  ore and coal mined in the district.  Newspapers in'West Kootenay,  more particularly in Nelson who  do not, or are not willing, to display that .degree  of familiarity  ,   with the subject under discussion  which   the   importance   thereof,  demands,   are  trying  to   create  unneccessary 'alarm at  the pro.  posal of granting a charter for a  railway to enter from the south.  In West Kootonoy wc find rail-  , ways    traversing    the,   district  ���   north and south, easl and   west,*  American  as  well' as |Canadian  roads.   <In  the applications for  .charters, and the construction of  these   roads,   those   avenues of  commerce    which    has' enabled  West Kootenay to rapidly   troad  tlie road to active  development  and   prosperity;    then   did   the  newspapers pi' Nelson place obstructions in the way  of  obtaining those charters?    Or   would  1 they   object   to   a   charter   for  another  road  to enter Nelson?  We are  inclined to believe that  their columns would be filled with  choice editorials in favor of said  charter being granted.   The proposed railway for which a  chapter kas been applied for is over  '200 miles east of Nelson and will  traverse  South  East Kootenay,  not entering within tWe  borders  of West Kootenay.    It is   being  promoted  in  the interest of the  mineral and coal productions  of  tke district,    ia   which    it.   will  traverse, without said  railway,  the  resources, and industries of  South East Kootenay must cease  to become progressive and active  wealth     producing    industries,  without necessary transportation  the wonderful and immense mineral resources of a district which  is larger than the whole of West  Kootenay must linger along  delayed by lack of  transportation,  which  is  denied  by   a> district,  when  in  need  of similar-means  of transport secured a land   subsidy in this district to subsidize  a railway constructed to promote  transportation in their  own district.  needed outlet for the productions  of this district. The only solution of the fact that Nelson  papers are objecting to a railway in South East Kootenay is  6��6��88�� or that they fear a commercial rival in the near future  in East Kootenay.  * * *  South East Kootenay is steadily advancing along the path of a  great mineral prosperity/ In  order to aid' and foster this great  prosperity the people of South  East Kootenay are demanding  from Ihe Dominion and Provincial Legislatures a railway to the  south.  * *    *  It would seem to be impossible  for the Provincial Legislature, to  refuse a charter for a railway to  the south when the people of  this district are unanimous in  asking for it.  ,       *        *r        *      ' ���' '  A railway to the south i,s of,  vital importance to the people of  South East Kootenay. It means  the rapid development of the  mineral resources of the district,  the opening up of large ��� agricultural areas, increased population  increased revenues lo the government, increased prosperity to  every business enterprise, and  the entire ^population will see  and feel this prosperity when  the railway door to the south   is j  opened.      ��� j  ��� **_*,  Railway communication to the  south.,will bring about the erection of smelters in the Kootenay  vallev.  ��6r *4i. kA# ��gv  '**  Headquarters  for   Mining   and   Commercial  Men  The  All    Modern     Conveniences  FORT    STEELE,   B.

Jf   you   want,   lo go  down, tlie lirst tiling you lmve to  do is lo do .violence  to   tlie   fine  instincts of  the   body;    if   you  w.anl to ��o down, you mnsl withstand     the    eloquence    of    the  affections;    if   you   want  to go  down, you have to trample under  fool your sense  of  self-respect:  if you \viiii) to go down,  yon   always have to burst   some social  bond thiit, holds you like a  golden   J'etler;    if   you   wan),  to   go  down, you have to argue against  your noble understanding; if you  ��� want   to  go down,   you have to  light u  bit lor  bailie'   with   Iho  majesty   of   conscience.        The  most difficult .thing (hat any man  ever lias  to  do   is   lo go down.

Then  fix  your eyes  upon  the  fadeless   vision of immortality: for whoever has  that  hope or expectation  in   his soul  cannot be balked or daunted.  Will Live to Buov It.'
