IMPROVE THE  KOOTENAY
Situated as we are, inn narrow
valley, with at present only one
moans of transportation, and
Unit by water; The residents
and minors of Fort Stoolo mining
district have petitioned the
government for the Improvement
of the Kootonny riven Tlie necessities ot this improvement,
have boon presented in a forcible
manner. The possibilities for tho
future were shown lo bo largo-,
hi fact, that if a small amount of
money expended at this time
would be of immense benefit to
tlie mining interests of this section, that there was only five
gravel bars that obstructed navigation to sucb an extent tliat
steamboats could not ascend the
river al a low stage ot water,
some MOO tons of urn was shipped
down the river last season. Tim
coining yciii' at least twice tliat
amount; or more wlll bo shipped
it the necessary moans of transportation aro afforded. Four
large stoiimboiils wore plying on
tlio rivor in l8fiB, In 1807; Wo
lonrii tliat at least six and possibly morn will bo engaged iu tho
transportation of pre, The North
SUir Co, will ship somo ti, or 8000
tons. Tbe Dibble mine lias ore
for shipment, a copper property
in thn vicinity of Bull rivor lias
ore on tho dump ready for transportation, and al least one of tho
Moyea group will ship this suu-
n. The shipment of this large
amount of ore, moans everything
lo this district, it will help develope into producing mini's othor
properties, so thnt by the tune
tho Railway reaches litis dlstricl
thoro will bo many producing
mines to supply the road with
ore. The onward progress iu tlio
development of our vast mineral
wealth should not bo retarded at
this lime by llio refusal of
the government to expend a few
thousand dollars in improving
the rivor. $8,QQ0 well expended,
wouid extent! the season of navigation at least two months, this
gives the district six months of
navigation in place of four months. There-is no doubt, that an
nnmouso impetus would bo observed at onco in mining in the
district, also that a largo amount
of mining machinory would come
into the district during tho coming season, At this particular
time thero is no reason why tho
government should rcfuso to improve the river, Fort Stoole bits
become a port of entry, iiiitchin-
ery, merchandise of all kinds
can come in in bond from nil
parts of the dominion. Tlio revenues of the district will also
largely increase lo the benefit of
tlio government, for tlio working
of thoso mines, anil the shipment
of ore is a source of revenue to
tho government, Tho more
mines developed, tho moro ore
-Snipped, an additional revenue.
We would call the attention of
oui' member to tho crying want
of this district, and trust that he
will use his inllitonco at onco in
the matter so that by tho time
navigation opens, thoro will bo
nothing to obstruct the transportation of our mineral wealth to it
place of treatment,
fin- Scotchman's Prayer.
"Gracious Providence! Bless
all ta Macdonalds, and ta Mac-
donald's children, tor sons' sons,
and ter daughters' daughters,
for a thoosond years lung syne.
Be gracious to Send us mountains
of snuff and tobacco, and rivers

About one your ago llio peoplo
ot Fort Steele uml tho southern
portion of East Kootenay petitioned the {joveminent' for an increase, of the mull snrviccstntiug
the facts, which wore recognized
by the government and their request granted. Today wo llnd
ourselves in the identical position wo wero in ono year ago.
The mining industry has increased over 200 per cent, and
other business in the same pro-
portion,our population has, and
is still on the increase, but our
mail service has retroceded to the
old fortnightly mail of clays past
and gone, never to return, but
the mail of yo bygone days, bobs
up at the first fall of the beattti
ful snow.
The whole southern portion of
the district are a unit in their
outcry for improving, and a proper mail service. And surely a
district which promises so much
in the near futuro " to the dominion, " is entitled in common
justice to a moro liberal treatment
and better mail facilities.
We might also •remark, that in
denying us this advantage, the
Postal authorities adopt a " cent
wise> dollar foolish" policy, since
nothing so greatly tends to promote business activity in a
country as a good mail system,
and in a rich mineral land like
this, activity encouraged means
a largo return in revenue to the
national ex-cheqUet-i
Many parties take advantage
of the southern stage route and
send their mail to Kalispell, as
the stages make a round trip
each week: Why cannot we have
the same from the north ? We
do not want to petition the
government every year for an
increased service, but we do
want; and must have a more
timely mail servicei Our miner
al wealth is unsurpassed in any
portion of the dominion, butmin
iug deals cannot be consummated
with a wrttched slow mail. We
trust that the government will
grant tho late petition which the
residents nf this district have
forwarded to tho Postmaster
General. For the purpose of

The representative men of

be no interruption in the weekly

The people up there wore so

they did not think it neoessary

I have stated to the petitioners
that the cost of per extra trip
Would be If65,00 and that if the
service is granted I Would make
a round trip in a Week. But in
tliat case I think you should
make Fort Steele tho terminus

Mine.
SOUTH     AFRICA     COMPANY
Will Bo the Purchaser-History of
tho Proporty—Who the
Owners Are.
Tho reported sale of the Helena and Frisco mine in the
Coour d'Alones, which was given
exclusively in The Spokesman
Review on Sunday morning, lias
boon in a manner confirmed, It
was loarnod moiiday that negotiations for Its salo are in pro-
gross and that the deal, if
consummated, will cause the
property to pass into the hands
of a South African development
oompany. Tlie price was ascertained.
This proporty is one of the
best known in tho Coeur
d'Alenes. Charles Pierson located the San Francisco. Billy
Haskins and his partner had
located the Badgor; tho latter
was bonded to 0. B. Hardy for
$20,000, A. M. Esler of Helena
camo into the camp and took a
bond on the San Francisco, and
later took the bond off from
Hardy's hands, paying therefor
S4,000. This enabled Hardy to
hold on to another claim, the
Black Boar. The bonds on these
claims wero taken up by the
Helena Syndicate, other claims
were also taken in, and the group
is now what is known as the
Helena & Frisco. Tho principal
owners in tho proporty 'ttre ex-
Governor Htiusor, A. M. Holton,
Peter Larson, A. M. Esler, John
T. Murphy, Horvey Barbour, H,
M. Parchen—all of Helena. The
capital of tho company is $2,500
000, divided into 500,000 shares.
According to the Engineering
and Mining Journal, up to August, 1898, the company had paid
$475,000 in dividends. It is certain, however, that dividends
have been paid since that time,
for only a few weeks ago a dividend of 4 cents a share was
declared,

After sending the niessago to
Senor Canovas tho committee of
national defouso paid a visit to
Captain General Weyler, who
applauded their action and said
he considered it important for
Spain. Tho congratulations of
the united party, ho said, wero
important as indicating their
patriotic purpose.
A telegram from Clenf ugoos
says groat enthusiasm prevails,
and that a patriotic subscription
is on tho way to aid in the increase of tho navy.

i<es6S6S«»-at PROPOSED CABLE
BETWEEN   FORT  STEELE  AND
GOLDEN,
A movement has been originated for
,the construction nf u entile between
Fort Steele unci Golden, suitable either
for a Telephone or Telegraph, so that
telephone or telegraphic messages can
be sent between the towns namel anil
other iiuerniediate points The ont't'a distance is about 130 miles, It Is proposed
to connect the cable with the ('. P, R.
telegraphic communications at Gulden.
Then the cable would be laid along the
bed of the Columbia river, which is n
comparatively sluggard stream with a
steady fall up tn I "until Flat at the head
of the Columbia Lakes, tlience it would
be taken along the bed of the canal
which I'linncet this lake with the Koot-
t-iiiiy. and then down the Kootenay to
Fort Steele. The cable might be carried
farther south from this point and secure ti connection with the telegraphic
service on the American side, It is expected that some difficulty might be experienced in the Kootenay as it is ti
more rapid flowing stream, but this
difficulty might lie overcome by enclosing the cable in a wooden cover to protect it from sudden changes in the
stream. This cable would be an immense
boon to all classes of the inhabitants in
the valley between Fort Steele and
Golden. A lnrge and increasing traffic
is now passing between these points. Important places reached by this long
route, and the only means of communication Is a weekly mail. This is too slow
for merchants, freighters & miners who
require speedy Information in regard to
their business and also being of great
advantage to the people for general
purposes, it would be most useful to the
government (or police and other departmental matters, It is proposed to form
a strong provisional committee, so as to
bring pressure to bear both upon the
Provincial and Dominion governments,
and n number nf meetings will shortly
be held in the furtherance of the movement,

visited un Italian man-of-war,
and the commander denied his
right to interfere. When dawn
came the Minneapolis appeared.
Captain Fischer told his story
and Admiral Thos. Q. Selfridge,
jr., said I "We'll give you all
the assistance you want. You'll
take the refugees safely out of
this port if I've gut to bombard
the town."
"The admiral ordered a barge
with a detail of marines and blue
jackets over to the British ship
with orders lo hold her sate from
attack. The American consul
was sent for ami it was agreed
that the Boyne should sail at
once under escort of the Minneapolis. The Armenians have just
landed on Ellis island."

why he had entered port without

riots in Smyrna three or four
days before The din of another
Bdnilict reached the curs nf the
Boyne's captain about seven
o'clock in the evening, and the
Isries of the victims assassinated
came over Ihe waler. An hour
afterwards a small boat came
alongside the British steamship
and an aged man begged permission to go on board. With him
were six others, three of them
women, all Armenian refugees.
Captain Fischer assented, fed
them; cared for them and gave
them the protection of the British Hag. Captain Fischer said
he was bound for America and
in order to be on the safe side
the refugees registered as passengers,
" Not long afterwards a boat
load of Turks under an officer
rowed up alongside and the
forces came aboard. Captain
.Fischer admitted lie had the ref-
ugb'tiiJ en his ship, but refused to
deliver them over. He drew up
his erev.' ot brawny men, and the
Turkish officers said they would
