 '-IV ir-* ol Log A*��  Vol. IO.  FORT STEELE, IS. C, SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1904.  No 21.  THE KOOTENAY VALLEY  A Horticultural Centre for Fruits  of   all   Kinds.  The valley, in the midst of  which i.s situated tho town of  Fort Steele' is destined in the  near future to be of considerable  horticultural importance.  Probably no part of British  Columbia is better adapted for  fruits of all kinds in the greatest,  perfection, and the question may  well he asked. "Is .not fruit  growing the most prolilahle industry for ranchers lo lurn their  attention to?  Practically all tlie loading  varities of apples will prove  ���.successful iu' Ihe Kootenay  valley. ���  ���   A  large  number  of trees will  bo"sol. out. this year.      Mr. A. B.  i ,;  Smith, Tracy creek, has contracted for 1.000 trees to be delivered this fall. R.- L. [J\ Gal-  braith, early'Ihis spring,' received ������' about/ ;"i00 frees which  have been set. and'are doing  well. ' Dr. Watt, A. Baie, L.  Patmore, ChasLevott, and A. B.  Grace haves fruit trees which are  in a most satisfactory condition.  Berries do extremely well; altogether, ' the Kooienay valley  gives promise of being a line  horticultural    centre   for   those  I)  fruits most great!v in demand.  I he Herald is significant of  ihings in this line, which is:  ������Now ,thal the people have declared "for incorporation let us  have if " If would seem lhal  they ihi! .--people" should incor-  l>ora,te,and "us"' should have il.  Another   thing  that should be  taken     into     consideration    is;  every     lown    has    alternating  periods  of  prosperity   and   depression.       During    periods   of  prosperous limes towns  are   incorporated by those  having  the  least, at s'.aire.    When depression  comes,   the   boomers   move   on  and leave tlie double   burden, of  taxation ind debts on  those who  remain.     As well as talcing   into  consideration   the  capacity   and  character   of   the   persons   into  whose   hands   municipal affairs  are   likely   to-fall,   il   would be  well   for   the   people   to inquire  into the permanency   of   the   re-  sources from which the   present  prosperity is derived.

Where to Obtain Good Soil���Good  Water and Climate. ,  T  A number of Companions from  Cranbrook, Michel and other  towns in the district attended  thc convocation of Rocky Mountain Chapter on Sunday last  Rev. W. T. Johnston is spending all the time ho can spare  from his studies, in making calls  throughout, his congregation.  He is highly spoken of in all the  homes he has visited.  George Watson, Harold Nation  and Joe Taenhauser will leave  for Fording river, some time  next week, to assist in surveying  coal areas controlled by the Im-,  per ial Coal Co.  The session at Ottawa is drawing to a close, and it does not,  appear as if the Laurier government had done anything for the  interest and benefit of British  Columbia.  Ottawa, May 17.���At a railway  committee today the bill to incorporate tho Crawford Bay and  rSf. Mary's railway company was  reported. It is for a line flii  miles long in British Columbia,  to connect Kootenay Lake and  Fort Steele.  If is understood that a I a conference the Provincial 'government announced that,there would  he no, summer session to consider railway projects. The  government is now engaged in  working out a plan whereby the  necessary aid lo projected railways can be furnished which  will be presented at the next  session of ihe Legislature.  Who and'What?  The ci nest ion of incorporation  is still being agita,ted at. Cranbrook.  The benefits to bo derived from  ��� incorporation      and   , municipal  government are too manifest and  numerous, ��� to, need reciting" ��� or  enumerating.  Incorporation means simply  system; and system is just as'  : essential to a town's prosperity  iind progress as it is to-ordinary  business. The question "for. the  people of Cranbrook io consider,'  is how sound will bo, the system,  and the competency of those-into,  whose hands is 'placed the management of affairs. When incor- At, the coal mines in Michel  poration is used for graft, or and 'Morrissey the forces oin-  when the affairs of a. municipal- ployed only work about half the  it.y falls into the hands of incoin- time. At Coal creek there is  petent people, it. is disasterous. more work in progress, but  A statement, in a recent, issue . of I miners arc not making fulltime.  Slowly but surely Southeast  Kootenay is .growing in importance as a mining district.  Turks Fight Armenians.  London, May IR.���The Central  News correspondent at Baku,  Caiicasia, reports a serious light  between Armenians and Turkish  troops at Chelcuzan, in which  the Turks lost 130" hi killed and  wounded, while the leader and  many others of the Armenians  were killed.  -      Half-time in Coal Mines.  HE'accompanying sketch   of   Elk   River  gives   a fair  idea  of  the "volume '���"and   availability, of  tlie   walerpower   of  the falls'.- '<__        ���    ' <-' .'���,.���-.  iWith ther development of mines must necessarily-come smelters. To'operate smelters successfully, every economy must bo  used to make if profitable. The'most essential conditions to thi*-.  are cheap power, cheap fuel and diverting lines of railroads to  mineral districts and Ihe markets for bullion. The existence of  these conditions in Southeast lCootenay arc beginning to attract,  attention. In the vicinity of Elko is one of the finest waferpowers  in the west; here also the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific  railroads form a junction, and it is also likely to be the eastern  terminus of the Kootenay Central, and it being in- the immediate  vicinity of the great collieries of the Crow's Nest Coal Company,  it is not likely that these advantages will bo long neglected.  Mining Notes.  With the single exception of  the St. Eugene mine, the general  state'of the mining industry of  this district- remains quiet.  When completed, the Kootenay Central railway will supply  the long desired connection between Northeast 'and Southeast  Kootenay and open- up a rich  mineral section, which already  contain some big mines.  A. C. Mitchol, accompanied by  D. Newell, visited the big iron  mines at Bull river, also several  copper properties in that vicinity  Wednesday. He will report on  a number ol the- mining properties situated in the Kootcnay  valley, to the promoters of the  K.C.R.  The old placer camp of Wild  l-lorse creek is now the scene of  active operations. Wafer has  been turned into two of the big  ditches, and piping." has., commenced.'��� By==the latter part, of  next week alMthe,"placer mines  will be in operation.  T,wo hundred and seventy-live  men are now employed at the St.  Eugene mine. The concentrator  is running day and night, the  plant "which is used for! tire'  treatment: of'tailings .is giving  excellent satisfaction.  Geo. E. Henderson, ;; president  of the Gold River Mining Co..  left Chicago May Kith for Fort  Steele. Mr. Henderson is accompanied  by   several   Chicago  capitalists and experts, who will  examine and report on, tho company's property on Bull river.  Will Reside in' Steele.  , F. C. Malpas, manager of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce  of Cranbrook*, will reside al Fort  Steele. He has purchased E. C.  Smith's cottage and grounds.  Tho cottage and site.'is one of  the prettiest in the country, Mr.  Malpas' reasons for change of  residence are sanitary .condition,  climate . and picturesque surroundings. Mrs. Malpas, Miss  Ethel and Master Fred have  been slaying al the hotel while  the household uriods were being  removed and Ihe new house put  iu order.  Telegraphic Items.

Ml ' *  i;l.OW,TO   AMERICAN   MILLERS. ,  ' Washington, D.C, May 20.���  Reports received here show that  the influx pf Russian wheat into  the' large-, Western European  markets this year has seriously  crippled the export business' of  American millers. The' crop  was large in Russia, and, owing  to the fear of war in the Far  East, it was rushed quickly to  market. Much of it was shipped  lo Holland. Belgium and England before it was sold, in order  to insure the shipper a market  based upon its value rather than  upon what the Russian government thought if was worth, iii  case a ukase forbidding exports  was issued. This has .cut otV  a large percentage of exports  from the United States and Canada and a still further depletion  in the trade is expected to result  To Begin Boundary Survey.
