PYRAMID CREEK MINES,
Tlie Iiin Tinln Mining Company, uf Spain, whicli owns the
grealosl cupper properly in the
world, is also the real owner of
a most valuable group of mines
uu Pyramid Crook, in this district The claims number fourteen in all, and on several of
them gnnil development work
bus boon dono. Al 0110 pluco
Ihere isn dump of silver-copper
ore valued ul ?5,000, und a force
of forty men ure now nt work.
Nexl year it six-drill ai'' compressor is tn bo put iii, and preparations are already being made
lo receive it. The camp un Pyrninid Crook i.s properly tributary to Fort Steelo, but 011 account of the trail up St. Mary's
River lining practically impassible fur [nicks, nearly ali Hie supplies have so far been taken in
via Pilot Hay trail. To get in
that way tbe Selkirk divide has
lo be crossed, an arduous job
lhat would ho wholly obviated if
tliu St. Mary's trail were in
shape. Tlie Pyramid Company
intend next year to use Hie Sl.
Mary's trail to bring in their
compressor and other materials,
but a great deal of work will
need to be done on it before it
can bo used. The Company, wc
are informod, nro now asking
bids fur a wagon road from the
headwaters of Pyramid Creek
across to the upper reaches of
Matthew Creek, thence down
llinl creek lu ils junction will)
Sl. Mary's River. This will be
a comparatively easy route, und
wilh the Sl. Mary's wagon ruad
in guml condition there will be 11
gnnil line of communication established between this city and
tbe Pyrninid Camp. The merchants of Fort Stoele will be
losing a tine opportunity for increasing their trade if they fail
lo lake timely action in supplying Hie Pyrninid Creek Cam])
as cheaply and efficiently as
merchants elsewhere can do,
and tliere will nu doubt be keen
competition fur the business.
SOMETHING WRONG HERE.
The ways of the Custom Huiiso
authorities are past finding out.
There is a collector of customs
at Fort Steele, but apparently
be is frequently forgotten about
on the outside. When a parcel
of gnnds witli duty payable is
coming through to Fort Steele,
it seems to be 11 matter wholly of
chance as to whether it will be
stopped en route, and orders forwarded to the unfortunate consignee here to pay the toll on it
before it will bo allowed to go
uny further. Sometimes Fort
Steele goods are thus dumped
off ut Calgary, sometimes ut
Donald, very frequently at Holdon, uud occasionally al the
coast, We have numbers of instances in miiiil where grevlous
hiss nml consequent vexation
havo oecnrrod from iliis cause.
Ilul one instance moro serious
llinn any oilier Ihal has formerly
lakon   pluco  is  now  reported,

Walorworks Company hnvo beon

Imagine lho company's chagrin
when last week thoy received a

lhe customs officer ut Goldon
that the pipes wore lining hold

forwarded funds at onco, bul lho
senseless und stupid proceeding
of stopping the shipment al Golden has occasioned a delay of

THE SUSPENSE IS OVER.
Attorney-General    McKenna,
of the United Slnles, bus announced bis opinion iu Hie matter
of Section 22 of the new American Tariff Law. He buhls iu
effect that goods coining directly
into lho. United Slates from foreign countries, through Canadian
ports, are not subject tu discriminating duty of 10 per cent. He
also holds lhat foreign goods
shipped from countries other
Ihan British possessions, in Hrilisli vessels, are not subject lo
tlio discriminating duly. This
decision bus brouglii a great sigh
of relief from tlie breasts of
Canadian and New England railways. II moans that the bonding privileges are to be maintained in favor of Canadian
roads. Jiul tho New England
railroads would have boon sure
in lho end to suffer more than
lho Canadian roads themselves,
because tlio latter would have
been helped by tbo retaliatory
measures which Hie Canadian
Government might have put in
against the United States, had
the section boon sustained by
the Atlorney-General. The Immediate result of lhe decision
will be lu release an immense
quantity uf merchandise, now
waiting on Hie rails at Montreal
and other Canadian centres, until the matter wns settled.
AN M. P, P'S OPINION.
Robert Macpherson, lho Vancouver's workinginen's member
of tin' B. C. Legislature, bus
spent some liitlu liui" this
summer prospecting 111 Easl
Kootenay, and he has given his
notions In the News Advertiser
like Ibis.
"Nu, I was imi very fortunate
in my prospectiug," suid Mr.
Mticphorson, "I jusl staked une
claim and nn inure. That was
iu lhe neighborhood uf the Sullivan group and Ihe Nurih Star,
up lhe Sl. Mary's river, nn Mark
ereek. Thai is lhe besl district
in East Koolonay fur ininoral
llial we Imve been in. I have
been ull through the country un
the west side of Hie valley uf lhe
Columbia and Koolonay rivers
and prospected lho country
pretty thoroughly from Golden
In Fori Sleele."
"Are tliere ninny prospectors
in the district?"
"Vou will lind prospectors in
almost every creek 'ir river you
come lo."
"Whul of their success?"
"Tlie must nf ilium lliul I mot
ire disappointed with lho success
Ihey havo achieved. Some uf
them think thul they have found
properties Hint mny develop well
but the majority of them appear
to believe Hint East Kootenay
will never be su great a country
as West Kootenay so fur as the
precious metals ure concerned.
Il is uu undoubted fuel Hint there
is mineral there. Eust Kootenay
may be called a copper counlry.
There is somo galena. The North
Slui', St. Eugene, uud lho Sullivan group ure ull galena mines,
Thoy ure nil good mines; others
have got lo bo proved."
"How is Furl Steele progress-

THE PRICE o." SILVER.
Our despatches today shew a
decline uf '■', cenls sinco lasl Saturday. Tin' price is 531. Hut
thore are indications thai the
market is strong and again upward. The London bankers have
boon kicking up a greal row because of the announcement "1 the
Governor of the Bank of England
ihni ii was determined in hold
on.'-liifh   of  silvor  us   reserve
against tl irctilation   nf   ihe
Bunk of England notes. This
action of ihe Governor's, as our
readers will ron ber, is in accordance with ihe oplion permit-
tod by ibe Acl of Parliament of
1814, which was enacted fur lh"
purpose nf maintaining the hi
metalic parity. If the llrilish
Government and ihe Govornor
of iiii! Hani; do imi become
frightened ul the violence uf ihe
opposition now being made by
lhe Bankers Association, lhe
tendency of the Governor's action will bo to give silver a permanent strengthening. Bul il
is evident that the protest bus
already had some olfect, for the
price is down again. However,
if our quotations next week
should show nn improvement,
und Hie Hank of England's position remains linn, ns ii is now.
Ibe prospect for steady and advancing prices for lhe white
metal will be boiler than il has

THE question of the incorporation of Furl Steele is
now fairly before the people nf

whether or nut they desire municipal government. Tin.' advantages Unu would result from incorporation ore nut fur a moment
to be doubted. Thoy un' very

tho promotion of its success for
the future.
The residents of Korl. Sleele
all agree that tlie sit.' uf tlie city
i.s une uf the must beautiful nml
healthful in llie world,—therefore un excellent place uf residence, They all are certain thai
in tlie adjacent mountains there
is u mineral district uf greal
richness and llinl must always
givo employment tu many men,
uml scope fur the investment uf
much capital, They all believe
tluu Fort Steele is so situated
Uml it is the natural emporium
of business for the district, These
things all being true it follows
that Furt Steele must grow in
population aud commerce each
year with n rapidity commensu-
rale wiili ihe raining development uf Uie district. Why thon
sliuulll there be any hosilaiicy in
taking lho noeossary stops now
lu provide fur llie systematic unit
orderly government of the oity.

Privell,  president   of  tho   Big
Four Mining and Milling Co.,
which owns the Big Pour claim
on La r'k'iii' Mountain, while on
his way from Nelson to lliu Big
Four claim yesterday afternoon,
was held  up by an   unmasked
highwayman  some  four   miles
from Nelson, right on llie trail
lo the Big Four mine.  Mr, Priv-
itt happened to notice the legs
of u man sticking out from behind a large tree, and this sight
aroused his suspicions und he at
once drew his 11 Colts, and at
the same time lhe robber slopped
from behind the tree and levelled
u long barrelled rille at Mr. Priv-
iu.   Ai this moment  the rille
was  snapped   and missed  tire,
and the next instant both men
hnd  fired  ut each other,   The
robber's   bullet   wont    through
the crown ol Mr. I'rivilt's high
hal. while Privitt's shot barked
the tree against which the bold
robber was leaning.   Tlio robber
then started to run towards the
timber, und as ho  neared the
Ihiclicl dropped lo his hands and
knees, and while in this position
received another shot from Privitt's 41. which brought him to
his feet and he sniggered into
the thicket,  leaving a trail of
blood behind him.    Xoi knowing whether   lhe   robber   had
friends in ambush or nol.  Mr.
Priviti decided not to follow him
alone into the brush, and was
just starting for the Big Four
camp when he heard a rille shot
in the thii'ket where the robber
had entered,   .Mr.  Privitt supposed   thai   lhe wretched   man
had taken his own life to end his
sufferings.    Mr.   Privitt    then
made all basic to the Big Four
cam]) and gol a number of his
miners to return with  him to
search for lhe robber's body, lint
us ii was thon dark they could
nol lind il.

A largo oxporlonco in loading

uml foroign niiiiiiirlos, THIS YEAR'S BUILDING.
Fort Steele Adds Many Naw Housos
to Its List.
This oily Ims reason to be
proud ol' whal it has done In the
way of now buildings this year,
The list given below wus prepared by William Baillie Eor the
uses of the Port Stello Board or
Trade, and wus produced ul the
meeting on Tuosdny night last.
Many of the now buildings aro
ol' as substantial and pormanonl
a character us lho conditions
admit of, some of them being
quite handsome structures,
The largest and most expensive building put up this year is
tho St. Mary's Inn, and it is to
be hopod—indeed there is no
doubt of it—that Mr. Titus's enterprise will moot ils merited
recompense, Ho bus added u
very comfortable slopping place
to the city,
The must important buildings
erected tins your, from a public
point of view, are nf course the
Government buildings und lho
school house. Furl Stoele being
the seat of Government iu Kust
Kootenay, thoso now buildings
became a necessity, llie ones
heretofore used fur su many
years being quite inadequate In
the growing needs nud importance of the city and ilistrict.
Tliere is now accommodation for
the Government Agent, Mining
Recorder, und Assessor und Collector, on the ground floor, with
a basement for the storage uf
vuluuble records, In lhis u vault
should be pui. At the wosl end
of lho building there are live
cells for tlie incarceration nf
malefactors, und thoy seem tu be
stout and strung colls, tun, such
as thoy should bo. though il is
tn be hoped lliul there will be
little use fur thorn.
On lhe second floor of llie
building is tho court room,where
next your we hope to see an Eust
Koolonay County Court Judge
presiding, instead of being compelled to wait upon "The Law's
Delay" us it is exemplified in the
Tardy Justice of West Kootenay.
A jail yard is to be buill ui the
back of the building, uud il is
snid that il wns to obscure this
gruesome object us much us possible from public sight that Government Agent Armstrong, with
u fineness of sensibility that is
rare among Scotchmen, determined to have the building erected
iu a slantindicular position on
the piece pf land whioh it occupies,—a circumstance that gives
play to lhe most outrageous alleged jokes ns to why Armstrong
did it. But the building is u good
and substantial one nevertheless.
Work is just beginning on the
new sohool house. It will huve
accommodations for fifty pupils.
It should be twice us big, aud an
additional appropriation will be
needed from the Provincial Government ut the next session of
the Legislature Let Colonel
linker make a note of thai fact
in time.
Tho building operations huve
been chiolly notable for the number of excellent store buildings
that' havo boon erected. Fort
Sleele is fortunate in possessing
a good number of thoroughly
prugressivo general merchants,
and soiling llie prospect ahead
for gnnil business, have not liesi-
tatud lo provldo themselves with
tho nocossary accommodations,
These buildings are not, expensive in the way thai buildings in
long established places aro. bul
thoy nro so far as Ihey go substantial uud crndilublu.
Willi hotels Korl Sleele is well
provided for u new town, The
Sl. Mury's Inn, International,
Venosta, Oriental, nnd Levin
House hnvo boon added lhis
year, while extensive Improvements have boon made lo the
Delgardno, Stoolo, und Central
Hotels, The traveller cun nlways lind excellent accommodation at tlie well-kept hoslolries
of this oity.
Some very tasteful resiliences
have been added this your, notably those of George Watson,
|{. L. T. Galbraith, T. Siarbird,
and F, Jones, whicli are all very
pretty and comfortable placos to
live in.
Coventry's new Opera House
is one of the most useful additions In lho oily. It. is just whul
wns nei'iled, and llio proprietor
is sure In ilu well with il.
