PERRY  CREEK.  ' Reservation Opened.   '  'Great interest is  being  taken  , . <  in ,,1hc  opening  of  the Colville  Indian, Reservation which ihe U.  S. Government has announced is  'to   lake   place    sliorlly.       The  country is said to be of  extreme  fertility, and a. rush   similar  to  that    which    took   place   when  Oklohomo was  thrown 'open   to  settlement is  being  looked for.  The Reservation is in ,1ho Northern part  oJ   Washington  Slate,  and  close  lip  to   the   Canadian  Boundary.    The principal   place  in the neighborhood are Molson,  Chesaw and   Bolster  which  are  within a lew miles of the boundary   line,   and   they   are    most  easily reached by   the  Canadian  Pacific Railway's ,new   Boundry  creek extension to Midway,   the  distance from   that point  being  only   1!)   miles to Bolster. 2fM to  Chesaw and 23-1 to Molson   by  a  good wagon road.     ln the  past  difficulty has been experienced  in getting freight  shipments  to  those   parts   owing  to  lack   of  Customs facilities, but  this  will  now be completely overcome  as  the United  States  Government  has'0 just   assigned   a    customs  officer  to  Midway  to   facilitate  the transfer of American freight  to these points.  One   of   the Camps that is   Rapidly  Coming- to the Front.  Charles Thies and  John   Fink-  paid a visit to  the  Perry  creek  country a short time ago. ~They  visited a number  oj   properties  in Ihe vicinity of  French   creek  and express themselves as much  pleased   with   what   they   were  shown.    Among  the  properties  visited were those of the   Kootonay    Perry    Creole    Company.  This  company   is  doing   a vasl  amount of .work in   their  tunnel  to catch the Ruby load.   Sixteen  men  are  at present   employed.  They also visited ''the  'Antelope,  O. K., Roy and Standard claims,  and were well pleased   with   the  surface showings.   These claims  are  near  the  mouth  of French  creek and adjoining  the   Koole-  nay     Perry     Creek    property.  The  Antelope  is  developed   by  assessment work alone but   it   is  a,,  most     promising     prospect.  Three  assessments   have    boon  done on the 0.

The Shakespeare claim is improving as depth is attained, the  shaft is'now down 13 leet. One  tunnel in ISO. the cross cut has  been run 30 feet and no walls  have - been encountered.

Tjih PuosPEOTOit, owing to  the statemenl of Mr. Shaugh-  hossv that surveys for the north  and south road would bo commenced in Ihe spring, has nothing to add on the railroad question which would be of interest  lo its readers. It can only be  said that The Pitosi-iccjTOU has  constantly maintained lhat the  railroad would be built, and had  strong hopes that some work-  would bo done this fall. When  the surveys are commenced and  construction following. East  Kootonay will present a different  appearance than il does now.  New lite will be put in the people and Fort Steele will go  ahead.  Will Pny a Dividend.  While this is not given on   the  authority of the management,   it  is said that the SI. lOugene mines  at  Moyie,   lOast   Kootonay.    will  .pay   a   dividend   on   the    1st  of  ��� November, and   from   that   time  |on a dividend will be paid every  ! throe"months.

This  ledge is known to  bo 36 feel wide the quartz carrying   good    values.      Heretofore  most, of the work has been   done  on another ledge on the property  from 3 to VI foot wide, this is developed   by  a  tunnel   100   Toot,  with cross cuts 10 feet each way  and  lias  shown  up the claim to  good advantage. '  It is learned that a deal is on  for three claims north of the  Kootenay Perry Creek Mining  Company's property. This deal  it is said will give several thousand dollars to the owners. No  details have been given. ���  The recently located claims at  the head ol the crook are all  showing up well.  Perry creek promises to be  one of the stable camps in this  section, and another season will  witness great changes. The  properties are being taken up by  wealthy mine owners and the  field will be thoroughly developed.  Tracy and Lewis Creeks.  Work' will shortly be  resumed  on IheJonn L.    A contract   will  probably   be' let   to   exlend   the  tunnel 100 leet.  Assessment work has been  completed on the Rains Horn  owned by Grundy Aukhus and  Dad Spragne. This claim is located on Six Mile.  The owners'of the Si. Lawrence, a claim located on Lewis  creek, have just completed running 10(i feet, there ��� is a fine  showing of copper on this property.

Tlx'-'only liberal party in Fort  Steele  held   a    meeting   at    the  Steele     House     last''   evening.  What   was' done rcould   not    bo  a  learned, but it is presumed the  situation as far as Yalc-Kooiena.v  Cariboo is concerned was definitely settled.     �����.  For pure political cussednes.s  the liberal party carries away  the bakery. We have been  awaie of the fact, that so far.  Iheir interest in labor, has been  to use the labor organization lo  pull them through to victory.  Now it is said that -if the labor  party-of West Kootenay dont  pull Chris Foley from the contest, a straight liberal will be  put in the- field in Nanaimo.  against Ralph Smith, and possibly defeat him. A Mr. Sloan-  is lo come out as a straight, lib-  oral candidate, if the liberals of  this constituency dont succeed  in getting Mr. Foley to withdraw.  Trooper   Fuller,    Honored   By   His  Friends. - Parade,   Reception  and Banquet.  Trooper Joe Fuller of  Strath-  conn's Horse, who was invalided  from- South   Africa,   arrived   in  town  on   Monday  evening, and  on,Tuesday evening was tendered a Banquet at the Steele House  by   his   friends.      The   occasion  was one long to be remembered,  when Mr. Fuller appeared in the  banquet   hall,   he   was met with  such an ovation 'a->   would   have  completely     unnerved     a      less,  modest    man   than   Joe.       Hit  friends had met to do him honor  and they certainly succeeded  in  giving him a glorious and friendly  welcome.     The  tables  were  loaded    with     (he   goods   that" ,  the .Gods  provide.     The  mem\  embodied  all   the   delicacies ,of  the .season",   to   be washed down  by  draught    nectar   from   Sea- <  grams and   other' famous  distilleries, and beer   from   the  Port  Steele. Brewery.     While   there  was no rcg-ular arrangements  of  toasts,   \hcro   wore    plenty   of  them.     It  was   late,   or. rather  early in'the .morning before   the  banqueters left the feslive'board  and some of them were   keeping  up  Ihe   celebration   until, after  daylight.    . '  One of thca features of the'  evening was th6 parade which  took place before the banquet,'  the "hero" of the evening was  in a buggy drawn by friendly,  hands through the ..principal  streets, proceeded'by the pipers.

Capital is badly  needed to put the country on a  firrii foundation with other districts in British Columbia. This  section is full of mineral which  will be made available in lime,  but wailing is wearisome, and  many are becoming discouraged  at the lack of progress which is  being made. All things, comes  to him who waits, and the people  who stay with"the> country will  reap a'Vicli reward.  The tone of the press would  lead an unprejudiced man to believe that the conservatives  will  , i swveep the country at the forthcoming election. ��� The liberals  are doing their utmost.-by jolli-  'fication and abuse, to bolster  up  1 their waning lorluncs, but it will  be' without avail their doom is  'sealed." ���    '  The approaching general eloc-  . Lion-seems to cut a  very small  '    figure in this constituency, 'inter-  .j ,    '  est in�� politics 'are at a low ebb,  ,. ( o you hear but little political   dis-  1     'cussion on the streets, the explanation   of   this   may arise from  ���'      ' several'caiisus.    That the cancli-  <       dales are not known lo  any  e'.v-  '   - ,*   tent,   that   the   dale   when the  election is to lake place has , not  been   set,   that   the quiet voters  <���    are in greater niimbersfhis year,  aud are moved  by  a  doterniina  lion lo'ineef their duly as voters.  a  A I X  The indications arestrong that  the Conservatives will have a  larger popular vote this year,  than they had in Iriilll.  The charge of designs and  methods is one of. the old misused party cries, the fact, is, that  eighteen years of Conservative  prosperity: ^ should outweigh  four years of Liberal extravagance.  There is,;i very decided awakening in favor of good roads all  over the Province.
