, Tlie Crow's Nest pass, thro&gh
which the proposed railway will
enter llie Kootenay valley, bus
an elevation of 5,500 feel abovo
sea level, this is about i!00 feet
higher than the Kicking Horse
pass, through whicli the Canadian
Pacific railway now crosses llu:
Rocky Mountains. It is reported
that the grade of the proposed
road  through the Crow's Nest
pass will only lie I per cent. The
proposed road will open up llie
largest mineral country yet discovered.   A section of vast undeveloped mineral wealth yet in
its infancy.   East Kootonny has
coal,   copper,   gold  und  silver
mines, which are being developed, this road when completed,
will be the means of opening llie
whole southern portion of East
Kootenay, it will run for u distance of 150 miles through a section of country rich in mineral,
tributary to, and dependant upon
this road "for future shipment nf
ore, and supplies" nr,', Ihe North
Star and Sullivan group of mines
numbering 100 claims or prospects.    On Perry creok, are 00
more, Weaver creek 20, Moyea
Lake and River 22,  Bull rivor
and Elk river 15, the St. Mary's
rivor and tributaries over 100,
Wild Horse creek im. Wasa and
tho vicinity of Tracy creek 80,
and the largest coal field upon
the American continent. Thus it
will bo seen that there are over
5no mineral claims on the line of,
and tributary to Ibis proposed
road.   The North Slur can ship
100 tons daily, tho St. Eugene 50
to 70, the Dibble mine has ore
sacked ready for shipment-, several  mines  in  the   vicinity of
Tracy crook  have considerable
ore on tbe dump,   On Hull river
thero are at least two copper
properties that can become producers at once, and there is no
doubt', tliat at least tea per cent,
of  tho  claims  In   11 iis district
would become producers upon
the advent of u railroad into iliis
valley.
Mining operations in tho Fort
Steele distriot are being prosecuted with vigor, nnd It is apparent
to nil. wlm visit ibis section of
country that there is a great
future for the district. Tlie North
Star and Sullivan group of mines
roinprisiug about Kill claims, aro
situated on Mark creek, a tributary of the St. Mary's river, and
aboul I'o miles from Fort Steele.
The North Star is at present the
only producing mine, and shipped
lust year in the vicinity of 5000
tons of ore, during Ihe past winter iliKiO tons of rich carbonates,
averaging iu value from HO to
|100 have been mined, also about
2D00lonsof rich galena. This
largo amount of ore is now being
transported to the company's
lauding on the Kootenay river
preparatory for shipment by
steamboats lo Jennings, Montana,
Several mines iu this group have
been sold during tlie pact whiter,
Tlie Sullivan group is owned by
Spokane parties and it is reported thai a large amount of development work will be poiformed
during llie coming season.
Ou Lower Moyio lake, the St,
Eugene has a large amount of
ore on the dump, several men
have been working ou this property during the winter. The
.Moyio claim lias also a good
showing of ore, and we learn lhat
all the claims in this group will
he developed us rapidly as possible. Tho recent strikes of rich
gold quart!-, on Perry creek, has
Caused considerable excitement,
■ i'i! it is reported that considerable machinery will go into that
vicinity this summer, On Weaver
creek another tributary of tho
St. Mary's, aro a number of gold
quart)! claims that have bee
bonded to Montana parlies, A
Mill site Iiiik been selected, and
it is snid that a Stamp Mill w

Tlie War Eagle is one of the
*pest-known properties in tlie
Trail creek district, and it is to
this mine and its enterprising
pwners that much pf the present
prosperity of the camp of Rossland is directly due, Shortly
after the propeity passed into
the hands of the present company, a diyidpnd was declared,
.and the first genuine excitement
}n tlie digtriRt followed, Prom
thai time on until the present
the excitement has. inpreased,
Until now there arp oyer 300
claims recorded in the district,
Machinery to. tlie value of three-
quarters of. a million dollars has
been installed, and an enormous
amount gf development has been
done,
Up to the present time the War
Eagle has paid $187,500 in dividends, and lias Jargp reserves, of
pre in sight,
The history of the mine is. an
interesting one. It was located
jn 1889 by Joe Morris and Joe
Bourgooise, and passed through
nil the. ups and downs, mostly
downs, to the discouragement of
of the owners before passing into
the hands of the present company, in 1894. Systematic development was commenced tho same
year, and in tho summer of 1895
tho iii'st dividend, of $87,500 was
declared, In tho following winter
the mines known as tho War
Eagle, Iron Mask, Poorman and
Virginia-wore segregated, owing
to tho difference in ownership,
although many of tho stockholders woro interested in all of the
companies.
The officers of the company
are i President, Patrick Oiark ;
vico president, John A, Pinch ;
treasurer, Austin Corbin; secretary, P. E. Lucas. Tho trustees
are Patrick Clark, John A, Pinch
A..B. Campbell, Austin Corbin,
B. C. Kingsbury, W. J. Wakefield of Spokane, and II. L,
Prank of Butte, Mont.
At the annual meeting of tho
company, on May 18 last, an
option was given to C. Corbin,
president of the Spokane Palls &
Northern railway, for London
interests. The price was then
$2 a share for tho War Baglo and
$1 it share for the Iron Mask, or
' §1,500,000 for both properties.
Previous to this time Mr. Corbin
had an option for $1 por sluiro,
or $800,000, for tho War Eagle,
This option expired on April J
Rossland, B.C. Ntiws has been

Robert Mnrpole, superintendent
of the Canadian Pacific railway
is there perfecting arrangements
for tlio immediate construction of
a broad gtjago road from Now
Denver, pn Slocan lake, down
Slocan riyor to Ward's grossing
on the Columbia & Kootonny
railway, this means that as far
as Kootenay is concerned tho
Canadian Pacific has entered upon an active and aggressive policy, In con'nnptioii with tho road
now being constructed along the
Columbia rivor between Trail
and Robson. Tho importance of
Slocan river road is easily seon,
It is t)ie most important event in
the scheme of the Canadian Pa-
pific aggrandizement yet conducted in Kootenay.
H simply moans that the C.P.R.
is making a strong and determined effort to capture the tonnage and smelting of Kootenay,
The proposed road will open up
the great silver-lead mines of the
Slocan, and give them a market
for their products at the Trail
and Nelson smeitprs.-Partieularly
will the results be great to the
formpr, as it is an open secret
that all the details for tlio changing of the Trail-copper smelter
into a silver-load stack have long
been contemplated, and the neoessary machinery ordered. It is also
reported that Hoimse has a man
in Slocan now contracting for
the future output of several of
the big mines there.
Another piece of startling news
is that a party of Canadian Pacific
railway surveyors, under C. E,
Perry as head engineer, have
loft Nelson for Balfour, and will
run the preliminary survey lines
of a road around the lower Kootenay lake, through the Port
Steele country, through the
Crow's Nest pass road to Macleod,
on the main lino of the CP.R.
This is tlie first active move
yet made in the construction of
this road,and it seems from present appearances as if the Canadian Pacific were making preparations to build and operate the
road themselves, It is reported
tlio work of active construction
will begin us soon as tho oondi-
tioiis of the weather will permit.

■Phe past year has boon chiefly
oiio of .development; this year
will be one of production. The
construction of a railroad in this
district will be an important factor to the large shipments of ore.
Tlio Improvement of the Kootenay rivor, will also add to the advancement of the ininoral resources, and tlio development' of the
sou thorn portion of the district.
Mining at this time is hampered
by lack of proper transportation
facilities, there is plenty of room
for tho various means that may
be afforded for tho shipment of
oro ihlriilg tho coming yeur.
