Cuiiiidlun Pacific Hallway..  l'us.'e 2  J     MINERAL FLOAT     J  There is plenty of good free-  milling gold quart/, on Perry  creek.  At present all the roads, trails  and bridges in South" East  Kootenay are in excellent condition.  The big dividend paying mines  ' , of British Columbia are situated  in the,Fort Steele district.   ,   ,  The St. Eugene has paid  dividends amounting to $2l0,000.  The North Star *117,000.^/  It  is the opinion of experts  - - that several properties-on Alki  Creole contain immense copper  deposits.  ' Capital is needed to , make  further development that will  - add a large number of ' producing mines to this district  -  It is stated that* the Perry  Crook Gold Mines Company,will  install a 40-stamp mill on their  mines next spring.  Placer mines on Perry creek  have laid in supplies( for  exten-  ��� sive winter working" - b'  Tho ��� placer deposits on  Wild Horse creek are only seven  miles long, and has been continuously worked)for 39 years,  . , and as yet shows no signs of exhaustion.  The North Star mine has been  a steady and constant producer;  for several.years. , This  year it  - is  the. largest dividend  paying  ��� mine in British*Columbia. '  The * St. Eugene miue the  largest-silver-lead producer in  British Columbia "last year,, is  practically shut down.       ' ,.  Development  on   the Aurora  proves ��that   the'"ore   body   is  , widening out.   It is a good promising property.  ��� Of all,the, many reports made  by experts on this district there  is none but expresses the greatest, sanguinity of its great riches  The^ores of the Alki creek  district are for the most part  high grade copper.  Experienced miners rarely ex<  pect tofind the true course of a  vein until they have sunk several  ; hundred feet and have gotten  down to what is known as "solid  formation".  Many groups of mines are being opened up in the St. Mary's  river district, and several are  making good showings.  Tho copper situation is unchanged in the United States.  Copper is strong at 17 cents.  There will be a moeting in  Now Yorlc this month by mine  owners to discuss the lead situation with the lead trust syndicate.  The men who create the mines  of the future require encouragement and to secure laws favorable to that end.  In South East Kootenay the  districts that are attracting attention are Wild Horse, Perry  and Weaver creek, in which  placer mining is the chief occupation.  The old time prospector of the  early sixties formed the foundation of the Port Steele mining  district.  In every range of the mountains in the Fort Steele, district  development work is being  pushed with great vigor.   ,  The St. Eugene is one of the  best equipped mines in British  Columbia. .   ,  It is the intention of the Wis  consin company which bought  the placer.[diggings on Perry  creek to thoroughly equip and  work the'property on an extensive scale.  Gold 'mining  is, the most/fas  cinaiing,, safe, lucrative  and   independent "occupation     iii    the  world.  Everyday, week,'month and  year marks with emphasis the  fact that the mineral resources  of the Fort Steele district are  boundless.  New development in the (Id  placer, mines of the Port Sterle  district is the dominating feature  which enlists attention 'to this  section of South East Kootenay.  The coal industry in Souih  East Kootenay is yearly becoming more and more import afi I.    '  REDISTRIBUTION.  OLD   ABE BONDED.  Thirty ~ Thousand    Dollars   is ' the  ,       , Amount of the Bond.  The Old Abo group'of mines,  situate'on Bull river, has boon  bonded to W. .1. JLawrey, representing the,Green Mountain Consolidated Mining Com puny of  Rossland for sv.n.'ooo. 'The life  oi the bund is 13 months. Tiie  new owners have a, small .force  at work developing the property  Present development work'done  on the ,'property consists of  several tunnels and drifts. The  lower tunnel.is in oyer 200 feet,  and a cross1 -drift at - that < point  shows,that the lead is<24 feet between walls, with "a pay chute of  four feet of ore. ��� The upper  tunnel is in about 80 feet, with  three feet of ore. * The results  of assays show 17%'"copper, or a  lotah value , of I $-14 to the ton.  The' ore Lcontainsncohsiderable  free gold. "      , *    '  The.owners will-make another  inspection of the mine in about  ten days with the view of , making a cash proposition'for the  property.  Present developments would  indicate that the new owners  have secured a remarkably good  property?   Masonic Gathering-.  There was a large gathering  of the,Masonic fraternity in Fort  Steele on Saturday last. The  occasion being an emergency  convocation of Rocky Mountain  Chapter R. A. M. There were  present representatives from all  over the district. During ihe  day and evening two teams of  three were exalted to the Royal  Arch degree.  Immediately after the initiatory services the visiting companions and member's of Kocky  Mountain Chapter assembled in  the spacious dining room, of the  Imperial Hoi el to partake of a  banquet which had ,been prepared by Manager , Reineinan  under the auspices of the Chapter. The banquet was all that  could be desired, nothing was  ommitted. and every one present  were loud in their praises of the  good things which were served.  After the edibles had disappeared, Most Excellent Companion Armstrong, acting as  toast master proposed 'The King"  responded to by Companion  Galbraith in appropriate remarks, and on account.of tho  lateness of the hour, the affair  closed with the singing of "God  Save the King".  This  event will  long  be   re-  How It Can Be Accomplished.  Redistribution  which   is   agitating   the   people    of    British  Columbia  at  this  time will   be'  found to'be not so easy of accom  plishment  as   many   appear   to  think it will bo.    It,is  a   matter  of   history    that   redistribution  heretofore has been accomplished by party  government.      And  logically, we cannot see that it  can    be    accomplished   in   any  other   way   than  it  has  hereto  before been.     For instance not  by     a", coalition ' government,  which, the present local government undoubtedly is.     To  illustrate,   it  is  natural   that   both  parties  to  this  coalition   would  seek to prevent their- .'respective  constituencies being reduced or  cut off, to very possibly the ad1  vantage  of  the. opposite party.  And it is only necessary to  consider this matter carefully to see  that any redistribution by such,a  government would prove ineffective and fall   far short of   the  wishes and expectations ' of the  Province at large. It is conceded  however,   that redistribution is  necessary,    and    being    nee'esj  sary, some effort must and should  be made" to meet the wishes and  demands of the electors, though  the conditions  certainly. do  not  point to its being done  as  effectively as the demand requires.  Bearing theforegoing in mind  and the absolute need in-.the in-  terest of the Province that redistribution should be taken in  hand, it is suggested ��� that the  .Legislative Assembly as its'first  work next session,,, should pass  an acfenabling the Chief Justice  of the SupremeyCourt and'his  co-judges to make" a redistribution on fair and impartial' lines.  Such' redistribution when made  would be .beyond question, on  account of the standing of these  gentlemen, by either party, and  at the same time it is safe to conclude it would be fair; impartial  and more equitable - than if attempted by the present coalition  legislature, and most certainly  to be more satisfactory to" the  Province in general.  The foregoing is recommended  by The Prospector as a safe  and impartial means of obtaining  this much needed'adjustment of  seats in the local house.

Thcamount appropriated by the  house last* session for South  East Kootenay was small, in fact  the smallest for any district in  the province, and inadequate for  a district as important, as the  Fort, Steele district.  As the small amount appropriated was intended lo cover  the entire district, strict economy was practised by those in  charge. The result, has been  that not a dollar has been wasted  the roads and trails this year  have boon constructed in a  manner that rcilccts great credit  to those in charge. The future  cost of maintenance will be small  the bulk of the future appropriations will be used in constructing new roads and trails. 'If roads  and trails are ; well constructed,  as they have been in this district  this year, the future amount to  be expended.,in repairs'-will be  reduced to'a minimum.  " Moyie Mining- News.

The edition contained  an able review of tho history, of  New York- journalism during the  past century and, contained a,  fac-similc copy of the lirst, issue  of the Evening Post.  Loudon, Nov. Hi.���Visitors to  London this Call have .had the  pleasure of seeing some splendid  specimens of London fogs and  have realized,fully the force of  the saying the most impenetrable  of all fogs is the London fog.  This year no amount of damage  has been done by these, un  .welcome visitors and science is  at a loss as to what'can' be done  ���to-prevent their coming. More  than that it is doubtful if science  for a long time will be able to in-  terforesj with the ''fog fiend's  visits.-1 -What may bej a useful  outcome of " tho study .of the  phenomena i.s the possibility of  the fogs beiug foretold, aii'd such'  warnings, if they arc fairly re1  liable, will bo of great value to  the business community, and so  far as that, goes, to Londoners at  largo.  i*  Tt docs not often happen that  two princes are ordered to the  front with British regiments at  the same -time, but, this .has  happened in tho case of Prince'  t o  Arthur of Connaught and Prince  Alexander.of Tect, who arc both  officers of the Seventh Hussars.  It wa's only last May that Prince  Arthur got a commission, but  Prince Alexander has already  been out to South Africa and obtained a, D: S. O. there. The  Seventh Hussars arc now considered quite as fashionable - a  regiment as the Tenth Regiment  to which tho late Duke of Clarence was attached.  There has-been a marked subsidence of feeling in the country  if not in the army, respecting  General Buller's dismissal. , One  of the military journals still  champions hi.n with indiscreet  zeal, and contends thai the condemnation of tho luncheon  speech-on the grounds sot forth  in the official memorandum can  not be justified.' Bailor himself  has gone into retirement in  Devonshire, and may well ask to  be delivered from his friends,  oven more indiscreet than himself. There has been some loose  and reckless talk about a hostile  demonstration toward Lord  Roberls by the men who fought  under General Bullor, but, Mr.  Broderick in. reality is responsible for the final action of the  War Office ".and   Lord   Roberts,  -;��������������������� !>���       -. -' ,  like .Ihe  King,    acquiesced   reluctantly.
