Of tho (iompauies Act of British
Columbia,
Tho Spokesman-Review ol recent date contains an lntbrvlihv
with some jJeli'soni wlioeipi'esse's
his disappointment because the
tendency'_ mining legislation \n
tho provincial Legislature has
been In the direction of protection t'6 the i'niiier, and pi'btCction

qnoto from th'ei'iHorv'iew it (fow
of tho istatciiietvl'i ,'mn'flcf, Ad to
whicli prominence is given. I'lrst

pany fails to comply with lhe
law a lino or forfeit of $50 a day
is imposed, which means SUISO 11
week, or §15110 a month."
Now where is lhe hardship?
heretofore one minors' lieense
was issued at * cost of $">, his
only capital, his brawny arm, his
stock- in trade, his pole pick, A
company composed of five to five
hundred men with a capital stock
of millions of dollars, and the
owners of War Eagles, Le Rois,
North Stars, "ad iinituni" had to
pay only tho $5 per annum for
this sum—the company of many
mon, had the same rights as tlie
individual miner: to prospect,
own, develop and transfe* mining properties, but he, had not
tho right that they had; ho could
not form a company, publish a
flowering prospectus and issue
stock to be taken up by the public,
Will any fair minded person
say that an injustice lias been
done tho wealthy corporation in
asking them with their extraordinary powers and privileges to
pay from SO to 100 dollars where
the ordinary miner and prospector pays $-) only having the pro
tectiott thereto?
Thero is another feature in
this legislation which deserves
notice. Prior to the passing of
the "Companies Act" at tho recent session of the Legislative
Assembly of British Columbia,
companies having every concei-
ible powei'i and aggregating
millions, tons aye hundreds of
millions of Capital (on paper
only) were formed. The result
was that pei'Sons disposed to
prey on tlio pitblie, could with il
mineral claim, good or bad, it
made no difference, form a company, issue stock "fully paid aud
nonassessable" at from one Cent
on the dollar to Bilb htindredj
"tindtr tile laivs of British Columbia." lit will be understood,
th'e cbnsetj hence Was that hundreds of thousands of dollars
have been drawn oiit of the
pockets of the public both In
Canada and the United States,
by jlitpef Corporations*! In it
great many Instances the public
who were looking for a "good
thing ijiietip" were swindled, and
in many instances the country
was Cursed. lit the face of these
facts; Was it not time that the
Legislature stepped in iiiid pltt
some nifiilsiti'si of prohibition on
the foriilatibn of Wild Hat companies ttnsl eiit'pbrations to the
detriment of honest and logiti-
niati? 'Mining industries?
The person interviewed goes
on to coiliplain of the provisions
of tho Companies Act, compelt

the Act to Make returns Under

McLeod, July Oth, L807.—
[Special to Tlie Prospector. |—
Private advices here sny Unit the
C. P.B. officials have telegraphed
Capt. F. P. Armstrong, manager
of Upper Columbia Navigation
company, asking for rates on
passengers in lots of .100, GO, 35
and 25, and also for individual
rales for passengers from Golden
lo Steele.
It is also learned that work-
will begin at once, on Lethbridge
side, and also at tlie Kootenay
river. It is said that between
300 and -100 men and about loo
teams will bo put to Work on
this division at once, and construction will be pushed as fast
as possible.
The permanent survey is completed from Lethbridge. to McLeod, and tho road is cross-
sectioned to the intersection of
Rock creek and Elk river.
It is expected that these men
will leave (lolden about July 11
or 12, and wlll reach Steele
about the 16th or 17th, where
they will separate illld start for
different points along tho proposed route.
It is understood that the contract calls for the completion of
the road not later than January
1st, 1809,
ly unavoidable. It is unnecessary
to go into explanations, I want
imply to close by giving you my
real reason for writing to you on
his subject, There is no necessity whatever for tlie peoplo of
Port hlteelo drinking the "muddy
water' of the Kootenay. Let us
unitedly refuse lo pay for this
"muddy water," and insist that
the wnler driver shall get up
energy enough to go just a little,
•1 very little farther along the
road to tlie Peuwick springs and
they will enjoy tlie drinking of
water unequaled for purity and
excellence anywhere.

The article referred to by the
writer, In regard to tho Water
Works Committee, was not written but for 0110 solo purpose,

some definite action is to be taken

Mail Service From the North Is
Now Worse Than Before.
The stage from Golden, Carrying mail, arrives hero now' at 7
pi nl. Thursday and departs at H
a. m. Friday. This is a good
thing—or to become more slangy
and quote tho inimical Chimmie
_ addon, one might ask, "W'a't
'ell are We going to do?" Tlie
postoftice, through lhe Charitable
kindness of some one, was kept
open Until 10 p. m-, on last Thursday, but in the ttrriticjain whicli
occurred 011.0 was more than
likely to be shut out entirely,
making it absolutely impossible
to 1'eccive mail lind itnswBr it ill
time to .get it btlt by the next
stage. This causes a layover of
ono woele, to which one can add
another week- from herd to Golden, and then, for instance, taking Pt. Paul or Beattle as lhe
destination of mail matter. It
takes almost, three weeks to
rCach said point. If answerett

What General C. S. Warren Thinks
of the Lucky Star Group,
Spokanh, Wash., Juno 28.-
[Spocinl. | Tlie Lucky Slur group
of mines, lo miles north of Porl
Steele, has changed hands.
Donald McKay and John M.
Burke secured a bund on the
property n short time ago nnd
Ihey yesterday sold a qiuirler interest to Francis McClelland,
representing a syndicate of St.
Paul capitalists, ?10,000, which
is equal to the bund on the entire
group. D. (', f'nlsoii and General
Warren bought an eighth interest j
each in tlie properly. The other
half interest is retained by
Messrs. McKay aud Burke. The
terms of the purchase require
that the inonoy be paid by July
l. Today I). I'). Lancaster lofl
for Fort Steele with u certificate
of deposit for tho full amount of
the purchase money, which ho
will pay over upon his arrival,
"The surface showing on the
Lucky Slur group is perhnps the
groiitesl in all Hrilisli Columbia,''
said General Warren, when seen
today. "Col. E. A. Head nl San
Francisco mid myself recently
examined tho property. Colonel
Head, who is one of the mosl
prominent mining men in the
west, and it stockholder in the
famous Homestako mine of the
Black Hills, said thai ho considered it the greatest deposit ol
ore that ever existed, not even
excepting lhe Homeslake, My
opinion "I it is Ihal il is the
greatest reef ol' Tree milling gold
thnl hns ever been seen. Wo
made assays from eleven samples
taken from the surface, obtaining
im average resell of Sl por Ion.
The group consists nl' six claims,
comprising ovor 800 acres, nnd
is located ulioul. throe miles from
the Kootonny Rivor. II is simply
nu immense quarry proposition,
having every convenience for
treating llie ore. Day und nighl
shifts are now nt work sinking n
shaft under contract. If surface
showings and assays count for
anything we ai'0 assured of the
greatest gold bonanza that exists
in the country."

HOLflHR BROS,,   PROPRIETORS, INDEPENDENCE  My.
Americans Colebrate Their National Holiday.
A Splendid Day's Sport, Ended by
a Danoe at tho Steele House.
A .delightfully pleasant day,
fielded to by llm presence of quite
.a largo crowd in town, made the
4th of July celebration one long
.to bo remembered by tlio residents! of Port Steele, The town
was decorated in holiday attire;
British and American [lags bowing ji'imtly to the slight breeze,
whicli k.ept tho warm rays of the
sun from making it uncomfortable, The pc.es wore run in lho
afternoon and, without an exception, were all run on their merits, and in each race it was evident lo all that tho best horse
won. In ihe third race "a good
thing" wns already to be uncorked, ;'.::il no doubt would hav.
gone through without any trouble if.Skiioloun.Ioe had beon able
to keep hi.-, big bay in the track:
but mi ihe contrary, when the
big fellow reached lhe vacant lot
opposite The frospeetor office,
ho seemed lo tako a sudden notion to ".switch" and go the other
way. Suiting his notion, to action
he suddenly turned, and despite
iSkoukiiiii Joe's brawny arms, the
bU; bay took his course oil into
tho grass, leaving a clear Held
for Nigger, who won galloping.
The match race between Nig;
gor and Houghton's Roaney
ended rather unsatisfactory for
tho plungers and wise people, as
quite a large sum had been bet
on the result, Dan Burke had
the mount on Roaney and Kid
Lee rode Nigger. Burke got off
lo a false start, although everybody close by substantiated
Burke's statement that the starter said "go," and dropped the
flag. Ho run the entire distance
and claimed tho race, but was
forced to run it over. The race
was the prettiest of the day. It
was a ease of run from the jump,
and at tho wire it was a hard
matter to separate them, consequently Judge Barnes gave the
only decision possible and called
tho race a dead heat. All bets
wore drawn.
In the evoning a dance was
given at llm Steele House
which was largely attended and
highly enjoyed by all who attended, Tlio program of lhe
day was as follows;
1—100 Yards horse race—Nig'
gor Isl, Roaney 2nd,
2-,'M) Yards hurse race—Nigger 1st, Bonton Slid.
8—.100 Yawls flint race- Tul
