R.O.Jennings has returned from a business trip
to Spokane.    About the  1st of AprII,Mr Jennin-cs
accompanied by H.L.Amme left Fort Steele in a
oanoe for Jenninga Montana,en route, via the
O.N.R.R. for Spokane.   Mr Jennings,haa several
olaims In the vicinity of the North Star property,whioh he has developed to considerable extent,and demonstrated that  there was a body of
.mineral similar to the galena in the   North Star
Having proved that he had a good property, and
reallzeing that it required capital to further
develope it into a producing mine,he conceived
the idea that Spokane was the plaoe where a com
pany could be formed to  w'rk a- good property,
provided that the proper showing of ore ,as to
quality,and quantity wJO. be .--lown;hence his
trip to the great miniris; oentre of the North
vest.    The result,baa been just what might have
been expeoted from a description of the property
and samples of the ore with which Mr Jennings
had taken from the mine, for the inspection of
the experts,at the City of mining men,non that
know ore when they see it, men that know where'
to look for good property,pushing men,that have
mined themselves,that know,that to suooeed in
mining ventures you must   seek your mine in a
new distriot,then putting their shoulders to
the wheel,"in the shape of capital" proceed to
develope the mine,and show it up for all that
there is in it. These are the kind of men that
Mr Jennings met In Spokane, The result was the
forming 'of a oompany to work the Deane and the
All-Over,the oompany has plenty of capital,and
will commence work aa soon as the neoeasary pre-
parationapan be made. Mr Jenninga , a peaks very
highly of Spokane as a City,and a mining centre,
and aay'a that there is more push,and aotivity
in mining at Spokane,than any place in the North
west. Mr Jennings returned last Friday.vla Kalispel,and reports the. wagon road in fair oondition,between Tobacco Plains and F.ort Steele.

A special dis pat oh from London says!- That
a positive statement name to night from a-leading finanoier of that city that England has' concluded a treaty with Spain.The final message to
me is this;Within ten days Europe will be startled by the official announcement of this aot.
I give the statement with that reserve whioh -its
national importance requires, pointing out only
that the sensitive money interests of the oity
are often better Informed on suoh matters than
any other part of the community,except the highj^
est official authority. Suoh a treaty would have"
a vastly important bearing upon the Cuban question in the United States.

We have been informed that, there many men
on their way to   1'ort Steele in search of employment,this is no place for men in searoh of work,
as there is nothing for them to do,and at least
two men for every job that turns up,here at the
present time, Men   that wish to prospect-, and
have funds enouK    to carry them through the season will find tbr.t th".:  is, just the right plaoe
to oome to,as we have a mineral country that has
not been prospeoted to any great  extent;but for
mechanics and laborers there is absolutely nothing for them to do.

10^ down   the balance in three payments of

THE    3.C.  BOOM.
A leading stockbroker in London writing to a
friend here, 3ays, There is nothing doing in
African stocks and mining shares,on aocount of
the troubles there,and the uncertainty of life
and property;and as this state of affairs is
likely to continue for some time", He says, that
all eyes are turned towards British Columbia,
and    especially the Kootenay's and Cariboo for
the investment of gapitai; He  Is of the opinion
that a large amount  of money will be sent out
for investment,and B.C. will have good times for
many years to come.
ADEN.
It is reported that there is a whiskey den,
close to the line at Tobaooo Plains^n full blast
The attention of the Montana authorities is oal-
led to it,in hopes that  an effort will be made
to close it up,as it has a demoralizing tendency,and will cauae trouble.

Every dollar'3 worth of gold and every dol
lar's worth of silver taken out of our mountains
ia a benefit  to every business man in the Province of British Columbia. This money goes where
you little think. It helps every Industry. It
builds up every business. With it the mining man
pays his grocer, his butcher, and his baker. He
pay a the hardware man,' the merchant and the deal
era in all kinds of supplies. With it he aupport(j
his family and gives to his children the advantages in education and training whioh every boy
and girl in British Columbia should have. He
helps and encourage a the farmer by giving him a
market for hla produce. Without this market,
whioh we hope to build up by suooeaaful mining
industry,what oan the farmers of the Northwest
do?
The proper facilities of transportation often
it may be aald in nearly every inatanoe, make
successful mining possible, and without which
many, losses urc inourred whioh under favorable
oiroumstanoes would be turned to profit. It en-'
ters into the question of successfully operating
more mines than any one cause, for it enters-
largely into them all. ,,',
