CHOWS NEST COAL.
First Shipment to Fort  Steele   The
Company's Plana.
Teams arrived on Saturday
last with several tons of Crow's
Nest coal for Carlin & Durick-,
(he local agents for the Crow's
Nest Coal Company. A block
weighing 820 lbs. was leftat Tun
PltOSPECTOH office, being for-
warded by Mr. Pernio, manager,
as a sample for exhibition. It
lias been inspected by hundreds
of people, and the knowing ones
pronounce it a lirst-class article
for blacksmiths or for general
purposes. Although taken from
a point close to the cropping,
the sample is very linn and soiid,
showing no tendency to slacking. A further shipment is expected this week, and hereafter
there will be a constant supply
kept on hand for blacksmiths.
William Blakeiuoro, general
nianagor of the Crow's Nost Coal
Company, lias returned from a
trip to the old country. At Vancouver the other day he said he
had recently made a close inspection of the most modern mining plants in the United States,
especially with regard to the use
of electricity, and on his advice
tlie directors have decided to put
in such a plant. Electricity will
be. usod for mining the coal,
hauling it, driving the ventilating fans, and lighting, and, later
•on, water powor may bo usod.
Tho principal supplies purchased abroad were the firebricks for the coke ovens. Those
constitute a very important and
extensive item, and will bu
brought nearly 7,000 miles.
When Mr. Blakemore left the
mines, in September last, be located a six-foot seam, whicli lias
been sampled and fully analysed,
and found lo produce the most
suitable coke for smelting purposes. Ile left It) men at work
at the mine, and this force has
.since been increased to 50, who
are undor the immediate control;
of Mr. Smiili, the mine superintendent, Mr. Blackmore related
a remarkable occurence that hap
ponod in September last. During a storm a 80-foot vein was
uncovered on the south side of
Coal Creek, and operations have
also peen carried on there. As
the storm considerably affected
tbe valley, one of bis lirst con
siderations on his return would
be lo decide where it would be
besl, lo build the coke ovens and
set up the colliery .plant, and il
may be that lhe ovens will be removed nearer to the Elk River
Tho first installment of ovens
will bo 50 in number and they
will bo increased as tho trade requires. Mr. Blakemore will leave
for the east in about six weeks'
time to conclude business arrangements for lhe summer's
work, and will then return and
remain at the mine for' some
monihs.
Strike of Grey  Copper.
Wiii. Bossie, who came down
on Tuesday from the Coranado
mine, roports that a rich strike
of grey copper has been made in
the tunnel on the Colussus claim.
Tiic tunnel is now in 70 feat,
with considerable grey copper
showing in the face.
North Star Notes.
The North Star Co, has now
8,000 Ions of ore on the la iding.
W. Wade has jusl completed a
contract for hauling 3-10 ions.
Three four-horse teams on Thursday lasl hauled PP. Ions, mi aver
age of 17 2-3 tons per loud. Tin
sleigh road i.s in line condition
for freighting.
The company increased their
force by lhe addition of several
men the past week, and it is reported lliul in a short time a
much larger force will be em
ployed.
W. Wade will resume the haul
iug of ore to lhe landing in about
Id days.
II. J. Haney Returns.
M. J. Haney, manger of construction of llie Crow's Nest
Raihvay, has returned from his
lengthened visit to the east.
Before leaving the east lie is reported to have given out the
following for publication: The
rails will be at the Shore of
Kootenay Lake, 280 miles from
Lethbridge, by October next.
This will give the company a till
mile stretch of deep water to
Nelson, but the location of this
last section of tho road is now
revised, and the work will be
carried forward with as much
energy as the eastern sections.
The line will pass through many
tunnels and will follow the luk
and river."
Hospital Funds.
Editor Prospector—Sir.  I
notice in your report of the pub
lie meeting held at Port Steele
on Wednesday, tlie 1Mb hist, a
statement by the chairman to the
effect that tho Hospital committee wero now out of funds,
Might I suggest that tho committee draw up a full report and
publish the same in Tiik Prospector. I think I need hardly
say that I make this suggestion
in no carping spirit; far from it,
as I consider the public, should
be and aro deeply grateful to the
odios and gentlemen who have
devoted so much time and trouble
towards starting this most necessary Institution, but 1 think that
it is advisable in all cases of
public undertakings lo keep the
public fully posted, at regular
set. intervals, as to the standing
of such institutions. Believe me,
yours faithfully,
P. P. NORUURV.

THE   CLUB   CASE.
Stipendiary Magistrate Armstrong's
Decision Tho Charge Withdrawn.
Some weeks ago Provincial
Constable Barnes laid a charge
against the Kootenay Club of
selling liquor without a license.
The case was heard at the time
before Stipendiary Magistrate
Armstrong. H. D. Henderson,
president of the club, admitted
that liquor was disposed of to
members of the club in the manner usually adopted in such institutions, and in doing so he
was not aware that any law was
being infringed. There were
several such clubs in the Province, and none of thorn, as he
was informed, had boon required
to pay a license. However, the
club desired lo conform strictly
to the law.
The Magistrate said he was
not sure as to the exact bearing
of the license law on such a matter, and he adjourned the case in
order to communicate with the
Attorney General and obtain an
authoritative opinion.
Tlie ease accordingly was adjourned, and was resumed on
Saturday last, On this occasion
\V. IE Boss appeared ou behalf
of the club, :i;ul cited iiu* rulings
of tbe Courts in this and otlier
Provinces affecting such cases.
These decisions, lie submitted,
were all in favor of the chilis,
and showed thai where in :: club
or society, liquor is sold or supplied lo members, but such sale
or supplying is not tile special
or main object of the club, hut is
merely au incident resulting from
ils principal object, there i.s no
violation of the license act. It is a
violation where lhe sale or supplying of the liquor is the special
or main object of tbe institution,
The Magistrate stated that he
had received a communication
from the Attorney General in reply to the question be had laid
before him. According to this,
the point to be decided by the
Magistrate was whether the disposal of the liquor wus for profit
in the ordinary souse of that
term. Prom the evidence given
by the president of the club no
profit was being made from the
liquor disposed of.
Constable Barnes then withdrew the charge and so the case
of the Kootonay Club ended.
MUNICIPAL INCORPORATION.
Diseussed at a Public Meeting of
Citizens They Favor tho Extension of the Act.
Tho adjourned meeting of citizens for the discussion of muni-
ipal incorporation for Port
Sleele took place in the Opera
House on Wednesday evening.
Dr. Watt occupied the chair, and
opened the proceedings by calling on II. Kershaw and O. S.
Frizzell, who respectively had
moved and seconded the resolution for adjournment at tlie previous meeting, tog ivo their views
on the question.
Mr. Kershaw spoke strongly
commending the idea of incorporation, If Port Steele was to
enjoy that measure of progress
which they till believed it would
in the near future, thero should
he incorporation so that the most
might be made of our opportunities. If, on the oth,ir band, they
concluded that the cily was to
remain just about as it is, with
no advancement, il, would be folly
to incorporate, Hut they all believed iu a groat future for the
cily, and expected to much in
crease lu business and populo
tion during the present year.

amount of development   work
upon the property,    Upon the
Dodo, a tunnel is now in 40 feet,
a shaft also  has been sunk 4ii
feet.    On ihoUkou a large open
cut has been run for a distance
of 83 feet across the load, and
the face of tbo cut  is  Hi foet iu
height.   Thc ore i.s a mixture of
quartz and iron, the quartz carrying copper, and the iron gold
and  silvor.   The   iron runs  in
bands with the load, whicli has a
width of E'OO feel  on the Dodo,
and 250 feet on the Ukon,   Assays  which   woro   made at the
Great Palls smelter in Montana
give tho following values lo  Ibe
ore:—Copper ti per cent, $4 in
gold, and IB o/.'s in silvor.
Arrangements have boon made
lo thoroughly open these claims
during the coming season,  und
as soon as the railway  reaches
this   point  a  large machinery
plant will bo placed upon tlie
property,    Mr. Collett left last
Sunday   for Butte,    Montana,
where he will moot Mr. Starbird.
Ho will thorn proceed to Chicago
to purchase, air com pressors and
other machinery necessary  for
the development of these claims.
The Coranudo Group.
This group was located last,
fall by Messrs. Fletcher and McMillan, and consists of the following claims: The Coranado,
Arena, Arena Fraction and (be
Standard, The properly is now
owned by the Poison Bros., Mr.
White of Nelson, und the North
Slur Company. Some development work has been done on this
property, ami it, is reported that
the owners will proceed to open
up the claims early in the spring,
,.. ,       .-,      -,     ioxpected, arrive in a few week
and 1,i ozs. in silver, the silver     '
predominating nearest the lime I
and the gold near the slate.
Top Hand and Jack Pot. '!
These claims lie to the norlh
of the Colossus and Cornucopia,
aboul one and one-half miles up
the creek. The development
consists of two open cuts 11 feet
in length, with an is-l'oot face.
The load is about 100 feet in
width and is covered by a heavy
iron cap. Assays from these
claims show a value of 35 ozs. in
silver and %'A ill gold. There has
been located al lhis point some
1:1 or 15 claims.
There will be a large amount
of development work done on
Wild Horse Creek this summer,
also considerable improvement
on the trails. A pack bridge
will he constructed at the Forks
to enable the owners of properties lo take in supplies during
lhe high water. The trail up
East Fori, will be improved, also
the main trail up the Norlli
Fork.
Placer Miniug,
Tlio outlook for placer mining
on the Creek during the coining
season i.s exceptionally bright.
The Invicta Company will work
a large number of men. The Nip
and Tuck* Company are making
arrangements lo increase their
plant. A number of lenses of
placer ground have boon iniiile
and Boveral new eompauies will
commence operations. Among
the new companies the Hrewery

Some Important  Changes   Ton Pot*
Cent Royalty.
Ottawa, Jan. 22.—Amended
regulations governing placer
mining along tho Yukon River
and its tributaries, including lhe
Klondyke, as well as all other
parts of tho Yukon territory,
have boen adopted. The main
points and tho most important
changes aro covered by the following summary:
The general size of tho mining
cluims will be lot) I'eel. Discoverers may claim 500 lent. Every
alternate ton claims shall be reserved by ihe Government of
Canada, subject to Queen's mining leases, to be issued hi live
mile sections, with a fee of $IUH
per mile per annum, and tho usual royally. The fee for recording and renewing mining claims
will be $13.
Any niiuiber of miners, nut less
than 5 nor more than 100 miles
distant from the office of a mining recorder, may appoint a mining recorder, who will record
claims und, within three months,
and transfer the record und fees
lo the nearest mining recorder.
A royalty of lo pel- cent, on
the gold mined shall be levied
and collected by the Governmenl
officials appointed for the purpose, bul provision is made for
exemption on the annual product
of any mining claim up to$2,500,
so lliul claims which do nol produce more than$2,500 a year will
not be liable for royalties.
Provisions are made lo prevent speculation'in claims, by
throwing any claim open to entry which has not. been worked
foi' a certain number of days, unless reasonable cause is shown,
and by providing Ihal a record
shall nol be issued for more than
one claim lo any minor in lhe
! sume locality,

I'E P. Norbury, al Wednesday's
j public meeting, slated that ho
had received a letter from Stipendiary Magistrate Phillips
respecting the Klk River Ferry.
A new cable hud been obtained,
on which $16.25 customs duty
was payable. Mr. Hopkins was
in charge of tho ferry and he
was willing to pay the duly, but
Mr. Phillips, who is trustee of
tho ferry, objected to this, because iu that case the ferry
would practically become a private concern. Mr. Norbury
thought something should be
done to prevent this Important
furry slipping out of the control
of the public who had paid for
ihe cable. Ho suggested that a
Committee bo appointed to interview Government Agent Armstrong on the subject. On motion
Mr. Norbury and Dr. Walt wero
chosen to look ufler llie matter.
