Minnie M. and Tiger Incorporated.  N. 'A.* Wallinger 'has been  spending some time in Spokane.  His friends here 'wore getting  alarmed at his prolonged stay  and hard organized a search party  to go out for him. when fortunately he put iri his appearance  early in?the week. He was not  idle during his absence having  succeeded in organizing the  Lewi's Creek 'Mining Company,  'Uking'in thft"\\v.]i leu,,,-, n M.infiio  M. and Tiger mineral claims'.  The new company si arts out with  a capital of i?100,000. divided into  one million shares with ten cents  as the par value. Thc first shares  were put on the market at. 2-]  cents pe,r share. The matter of  tho.incorporation is in thc hands  of Mudgetf,' Kouthe cv Co.. well  known' mining brokers of Spokane.  The Minnie xVl. and Tiger are  claims well known in this section  and are well thought of. Mr.  Wallinger says: -'So far as developed the ore is principally  concentrating. The company  will go on and develop the property with a view of making it a  producing mine.  Six Feet of Solid Ore In the Bottom,  ,   of the Shaft.  A strike of more than ordinary  importance was made on the EstelJa group early this week.     lit  the bottom of the fi2 foot shaft a  solid body of ore was encountered six feet across the shaft. The  shaft was sunk on   Ihe   hanging  wall and how wide the  ledge   i-;  at that depth was not ascertained but. that  there is  six   feet  of  ore is known positively.  Tho ore is of high  grade,   the   '  values being in lead and copper.

The Estella may now be considered a mine  having  passed   the  prospect stage.. , If  there  were--  more properties  in   the  district'  showing the same amount of development', the question 01  railroads and capital would be prac-  .tically settled.

In  an interview with a representative of Tjiio PiioapiiuTOK Mr.  Walsh said: -'Capitalists in  Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa  are making iiujuiries' regarding1  the mineral resources and mining outlook- for East Kootenay  and 1 expect a number of them  will bo out here as soon as the  suason is more advanced. My  business here at the present  time is to look- after and superintend the working and future  operations of the Big Chief."

"To whom was llie Big Chief  rebornled?"  "I am mil al liberty lo say, at  present, however you will lie informed in good time.

There has during tho past year  been a vast amount of  speculation as to what  certain .railway  projects, which at different limes  had been agitated, would amguufc  to.    The rumors were, so   vague J  that there,has been;" tip  to  the  present,'    nothing  ���.tangible , to-,  grasp,' and the people have lived '  largely in hope.    That a' railway  must 'ultimately  come  into' the'  district there-seemed  to  be   no  .doubt, but;which of the railways .  will be first,in the field'? "Fii-nt 11  is tho C. P.   ll.. Wen "again 'the  Great   Northern,       It   will   no  doubt cause   some, surprise   Ui>  learn that it is neither, of 'them',  but a road  which   will   be  built.-  and operated by an'independent  company.     A company has been  organized in London, and il ha.-?  been    underwritten,    to   build   a. -  road    from     the    .international  boundary, following closely  the  mountains on theeast side of the-  Kootenay valley lo Golden.     It  said from a reconnaisance. which  has been taken, thai there are no  engineering difficulties  to  overcome., and that the road  caliber  built al'a  minimum .cost,   much  less than is usual in a inountaiu   ���  country.    Surveyors have  been  in the field foi- sonic  time   working quietly in small parties.    So  quiet    have   been   their   movements that but few people   have  been aware  that actual   surveying i.s being done.-  There'is no question  but  that  the large  number  of surveyor;-*,  which    were   at   Kalispell   last'  week   are   connected  with  this  survey.     It is generally  known,  that there is a small party at EI'  ko.   where   they   havo  been   for'  several weeks waiting for orders  lo go on: there   is  also another  party al Cranbrook.      Two   surveyors came down from Windermere last week.      It will only he  a short lime before they will all  bj actively in the field and something definite known.  The building   of  |]*is   road   as  indicated will force the C. P.

I I '���*  N"or  would   the  railways  pay  this interest obligation, foi', even  under the  careful   management  of some oL"the most expert  rail-  IP     way men of the day the  history  of Canadian   railways   has   not  been, one  of   striking   financial  success.     The total working cx-  ���pG-iihCS of the railways in Canada  -since  Confflderation, have   been  i?7o,0:2.),n:,l,   and   the    earnings  ^IS-I.SIO.fjr.f). or a^deficit  of  over  AS.0OO.0Oo.  . The loss for the lis-  '���a.l year ending  .lime  last   was  over a quarter of a .million  dollars.     Il'is  therefore   most ovi-  ���<lfinl, Ihat the question  of  Cana-  dniivuing her own   railways   is  noi, today, wiihin the   range  of  practical politics.    ,  The   alterinilive    proposition,  Mint of the creation  of  a   board  of   railway   commissioners   has  J moil brought before   the   1 louse  thi.1-. session as mentioned   above  by .Mr.   Knlherford,   Macdonald,  Alan.      His 'resolution   declares  that   Llie   said   board    shall    be",  ������clol lied with full power   to   enforce I ho provisions of  the Rail-  Ava.yAci,   and   to   prescribe  and  enforce the observance  of  such  regulations, as may'be necessary  iu the public interest".      A   useful and interesting  debate   took  place thereon nnd the ma I lor has  not. yet been disposed   of,    but  from  Ihe very general  support  given on both sides of the Mouse  to the project,'it- is "Hot .unlikely1  i;that a-practical solution may, at  least iii part, be found to be one  of the ,most perplexing problems  of the .hour.,.'. Il is at all'events  evident that the -Government.,is  fully alive'to the. situation- and  prepared to do whatever is prac-  ���ticab'leyin the promises.   7 '  , An   Old   Country -paper  comments thus upon the trade silnation   between   Canada " and   the  United Slates:���'-We   note   Ihat  one,of the inevitable   results  of  interfering with  free'trade  has  conic about between Canada and  th'e United States���in .fact  they  are    always    happening.     ,Tho  United'   Slates   Government    in  their'endeavbrs to protect home  industries admit Canadian  logs,  in the rough duty I'reo from Canada,  and  enterprising   Yankees  do not allow these logs to.go far  in their territory,   but have  established saw   mills   as near  as  they can to  Canada  lo 'receive  the rough logs and convert>thom  into dressed  lumber,   the  latter  having loo heavy"a. tariff 'placed  on it fo be imported at  a  profit.  The    Ontario    Legislature    has  however passed an  act.   prohibiting the  export of  the   rough  logs  to  the  United   Stales,   requiring the lumber to be dressed  oil their own territory.      A   nice  little retaliatory war may bo expected to em-Hie and already it is  suggested that in case the United-  Slates  enforces  any  retaliation  on their neighbors tho latter will  meet"it prohibiting the export of  crude nickel which is alone  mined in Canada.      What   an  object  lesson tho case affords   to   those  who would  try   to   work   in   Ihe  thin edge of the  wedge  of   protection in England."  "(loud   liiorniiii*.

The editor, of the Cranbrook  Jrlerald is much exercised at what  he considers a gross injustice to  the people of Fort Steele in. that  the mail now conies from the  Junction to Fort Steele instead  of from Cranbrook. Inquiries  have been made and it. is ascertained that the present arrangement is perfectly satisfactory to  Fort Steele merchants and  others. They are now enabled  io get their eastern mail early in  the morning. The mail from  Moyea is delayed, but the  amount of mail from that town is  inconsiderable and no one is  nraclically inconvenienced there- icontribute a number of articles  b',- ' I on the mode.     The  lirst article  It is leayni"d that the present | which will appear is an exhaus-  ���Lrrnngemoiu.-, is only a teiupor- jtivo article on "fashions in over-  ary one and in a short time none jails."

The Fort  Steele district will stand on its  own merits, and the people here  invite an examination of its  mineral resources.    r '    (  '    Profits in Hining.       ��� i  Dcspite'its load of  fraudulentiSOLD  claims and wild-cat schemes, the  mining industry has  paid  more  dividends, compared with other  industries   started   in   the   last  thirty years, than any   business  known, says the New York Tribune. ��� Compare  the  profits  in  mining with tho  profits  of  the  150,000-odd  miles   of' railroad,  with    the aggregated   liabilities  of nearly'10,000,000.000 then you  will see whichJ pays}  the most.  Under thc wing of mining there  exists some of  the   safest   and  most profitable  of all   business.  Take  for .instance   thc    twelve  great   companies,    the   mineral  pawnbrokers.    '   The     smelting  companies that do strictly a custom   business   show    absolutely  and unquestionably   the  largest  profits of any industry in America     I know-of-jnstances where  capital invested in smelling companies has been turned live times  a year, and each  lime  the "margin has been over 20 per cent of  the entire amount handled.  o '    A New Feature.

The   engineering   department  of tliu Croat Northern   has   pre  pared   plans   and   specifications  for a number of bridges along its  western branches  which   neces  sitales    an     outlay    ol   nearly  *1.000,000.      Plans ' for :���>:>   new  bridges are complete; and others  * are  in   preparation.      Some   of  those will be splendid   examples  of engineering skill, and all will  be uji lo date aud substantial.

Equipment of the Anaconda.  The Anaconda Copper M.  Co.  is well known.     The   purchase,  equipment,*and  development of  its'mines represent .an  expenditure of ��72,000,0(10,'e\yery   dollar  of which   wa.s  taken0from   the  mines.     Thc company produces  nearly   one-iifth  of tho  world's  annual copper product.     It  employs TiOOO men and owns ninety-  one mining- claims.   ,  lis   great  .smelters   and ��� refinery  at   Anaconda cost, 5��l,00(),0i)0:  l'00  cars  or (},oud  ton's  of oro  are 1 alsen  from the mines daily.    ,The veins  of the Anaconda vary from 10 lo  100 feet in width aiicl ail but, inexhaustible.

Canada is big enough and  im-  I portanl enough lo  have  a  mint  \oi her own.    There is no reason  why Canada should play 'secon'd  [fiddle to any' nation in the world.  [She ought to have her own gold  lc:oinage,,arid it should ' be  made  [in   this   country.      The    bank's  juaturiilly oppose the  idea,  as  a'  ,larger circulation of gold  would  ^'interfere with the output ot their  i-oapcr    money,   and ��� the   profit  [arising therefrom.    But the bus-  liness of the country demands the  ��� *���*���  [largest volume of money ' possi-  Ible. Furthermoretthe,,people of  [Canada want lo have a Canadian  ���"gold 'coinage-���a .coinage   that  than exposed to ensure a continuous output for fifty -years. It  produced during '98 122,000,000  pounds of copper besides several  millions of .dollars in gold and  silver.  " Homely Observations.

When George Shier bought  out the VonoslaHotel last spring-  it was to enlarge tho International 'of which he was the proprietor. Since that time improvements have been going on which  are now" nearly completed. A  large well lighted office is one of  the needed improvements-, so seldom found in the average hotel.  Back of thc office is'a large dining room, which, when if becomes necessary can be converted into a dancing or banquet,  hall. This room has been painted and papered, and is as cosy  and comfortable- as any dining  room in East Kootenay. The  rooms in the second lloor- have  been papered, and many of them  newly furnished;, there are  twenty-tli roe sleeping rooms in  all.  On the lower lloor the bar  room has been enlarged. The  stairway having been taken out.  Baclc of the bar room is a pleasant card room and a commodious  room for commercial  travellers.  The new dining room was formally opened on Monday evening 011 which occasion Mr. Shier  entertained a few friends at a  choice little supper, which was  washed down by Pomcry Sec.  The hotel is now second to  none in East Kootenay, and it**  popular proprietor can'now sit  back and waif for tho rush.  FOR FULE PARTICULAR'S ADDRESS  - - .   - , i      '  1 1  ,    ��� iP11 ,  H.
