■ It is stated on good authority
that a number of professional
claim jumpers have arrived in
this vicinity recently. This is
undoubtedly a good country for
prospecting and legitimate mining, but when it comes to claim
jumping and its intending evils,
the citizens and oflieers should
prepare to givo them the kind of
reception they deserve,
C. P, Venosta has invited a
few of his most intimate friends
to meet The Hon. Col. James
Baker M, P. and Minister of
Minos, and Col. R. L. T, Galbraith this evening at Hotel

A number of mining men, including Col. A. E. Head, Maj.
John M. Burke, Gen. Chas. K.
Warren, Doe, Roddy and others,
were congregated in the Pros-
[icetor olliee Wednesday evening
hugging the only lire in town and
discussing old times in California
mid the Ciicur d'Alenes. Good
stories wore the order of the
hour, and many tho hearty laugh
enjoyed. Col. Head lold of llie
clays when nuggets weighing iVn
and $70 wore picked up on the
surface in California, and Muj,
Burke entertained with tales of
tho Cooiir d'Alenes, Prank 11)-
gan lold of the early days iu
Oregon, and the General told of
the Helena boom. From miiiii
tho conversation drifted into
fishing, and many were the till
told of "fishes and fishes". But
when Doc. Roddy, who had kepi
comparatively still during the
evening, told of catching 088
trout in two hours and 30 minutes, the crowd quietly arose one
by one, and repaired to the Central, where consolation wus
sought and sorrows drowned.

therefore taken preliminary steps
to secure such means us will bettor promote the object, 1 have In-
diculod, such as securing land
for Smelter site, Tramway, water

Mark crook to a point six miles
above its mouth at St. Mary's
river, and also a contemplated
lino of tramway from the mouth
of Mark Creole along lho north
bank of St. Mary's River to Porl,
Stoele. Tho advent of the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway in the vicinity
of Cranlirook will give necessity
for a spur to be built lo tap one
of those arteries, provided lhe.
oul, put, is in such quantities us
tho surl'aeo indications of thoso

would give two competing transportation lines lo Ihoso mines, ll

In course of lime continue lliu

The government also hikes
back50,000 acres of coal lands
given ns a land grant, to the
British Columbia Southern. This
coal land will hu divided into
blocks, ami the government will
have lirsl choice and llie railroad
company second choice of blocks.
