II was our intention this week
to go into a detailed description
«f the necessity of the Improvements cited above, but lack of
space prevents. Next week we
will give the details, and as we
tire by no moans sure that we
have set forth all that is required, we would be glad if In the
meantime our readers would
send us in suggestions as to any
olhor works that are necessary.
We desire that a fair appropriation shall be made to all parts of
jhe district, and when wo have
''hilly learned all that is reason-
' ably required, wo shall urge on
Ihe Government as strongly as
running up the stream for one
mile from its conMuonce with the
Wild Eorso. In the early days,
as is well known, some twenty
millions was taken out of the
Wild Horse in a distance of aboul
four miles above and below the
point where Brewery Creek
Hows into it, and considerable
gold has also been washed from
the gravels of the latter creel;,
ll was thought that ii' bedrock
could be reached gold in highly
paying quantities would be
found. Mr, Jennings and his
partners slurted in last summer
to get down to bedrock, with a
shaft 7x0 leei. At i'n feet depth
tho water came in on them pretty
freely, nnd a water wheel and
pump were installed lo carry oil'
the How, but afler going IH inches further they found their
pump insufficient to cope with
the waler.
Another shaft was started
ulioul i'iiii feet further down the
stream, but here again al about
i'n feet depth the waler forced
them to pui in a steam pump,
and lhis proving insufficient a
second steam pump was pui in.
This allowed them lo gel aboul
In feel further down, when they
were again slopped by tho billow. At Iheir lowesl level the
specimens of coarse gold men-
lioneil above were taken oul of a
single pan. Iwo of the colors going IS cenls. The gravel is
loose. Mr. .leunings believes
that the appearance of such
course gold indicates thai they
are now very close to bedrock',
and he went to Spokane this
week- to procure a pumping plant
large enough lo cope with any
possible billow' of water. The
plant is to be brought in at once,
and will probably be installed
and at work within a month.
The prospect certainly seems
very line.
On a lease just above those of
.leunings & (Jo., but removed to

Doherty has been at work during the summer putting down a
shaft, and al a depth of 22 I'eel
found some rich pay dirt, lie is
not yel sure that he has got to

exposed at the bottom of the
shaft are fragments. Itul he is
extremely sanguine, in this

SEEVICE    FROM
KOOTENAY.
WEST
Editor Puospectori Sir,—
I seo by your paper that a regular steamboat service twice a
week haa been put in between
Nelson and the mouth of Goat
River, where the Crow's Nest
tote road reaches the waters of
Kootenay Lake. I am informed,
too, that the White-Fraser Stage
Company i.s about to put in a
regular stage service from this
point to connect with the steamers at Goat Landing.
Under these circumstances,
could not something be dono to
got a mail service established
this winter between Fort Steele
and Nelson and intermediate
points? A lot of mail could be
got in by that route, and business be much expedited, and the
cost would, I should think, be
only trilling.   Yours,
C. P. Venosta.
Port Steele, Jan. 3, 1898.
Steele Hoard cannot be chartered until the city bus become

LlflUOR LICENSES ON C. N. Ry.
Editor Prospeotob : Sir,—
The letter of Mr. Andrew Alcorn, of Coal Creek, in your last
issue touches a matter of great
importance to all engaged iu
freighting, as I am. Every
place along the line where a license has been granted there is
a comfortable and safe place to
stop ul, but where there is no
license the accommodation is as
bad as it could be, aud it don't
prevent whisky being sold, for
you can get lots of it, awful rot-
gut though, If Mr. Armstrong
would send some one along the
road to enquire about this matter, he would see that a great
good instead of harm would be
done by a judicious issue of licenses along the line. Can't you
and the Fort Steele people help
ns out some?

RIVER IMPROVEMENTS.
Editor Prospector: Sir,—
When Mr. Bostock was in the
city lust fall ho was interviewed
by members of the Hoard of
Trade, and promised to do what
he could to get a survey of the
rivor made between here and lho
International Boundary lino, so
as to mako an estimate of thc
cost of removing the bars which
interfere so much with navigation. Has anything been done
about the matter? And I might
ask, too, what has become of the
Hoard of Trade?

l-'ort Steole, Doc. 30, 181)7.
|Minister of Public Works
Tarto has replied to the com
nninication respecting tho im
provements to the river that the
subject would have his careful
attention, The season is now
so far advanced that a survey
could not properly bo made be
fore the river is clear of ico in
the Spring. However, Mr. Bos*
lock will urge during the com
ing session that an appropria
tlon be made so lhat the work
may go on next summer. Mr.
Bostock writes that the government are lacking in Information
ns to the great need for the Improvements, and care must b(
tiiken that thoy bo properly
posted on the subject
As to the Hoard of Trade, the
law ollleers of the crown at Ottawa have decided lhat the Fort
Somo of tbo Company's Plans How
the Townsito Will Be Disposod
of The Branch Railway-Snow-
slides.
Win. Fernio, of tho Crow's
Nost Pass Coal Company arrived here from the mine at Coal
Crook last Saturday, having
mado the distance on foot rather
than ride or drive over tho road
in its present condition. He
statos that they are getting on
vory favorably with the work at
the mine. Tho grading of tho
branch lino from lho mouth of
Coal Creek to the mine is going
on briskly ; the distance is about
■H miles, aud lho intention is to
have it ready for the rails as
soon as the Crow's Nest Railway
i.s completed to the Creek,
when the iron can be got: in.
Mr. Fernio is the land commissioner of the company, and
states that they havo decided to
havo the habitations of tho
minors all located on the town-
site at tho junction with the C.
N. Railway. The mountain sides
all the way up from the mouth
of the Creek are precipitous, the
valley is very narrow, and the
danger from snowslides in the
winter will be incessant. These
conditions make it necessary
that the men should.live at the
townsite. There will be a train
of curs always ready to remove
one shift of men
to thoir homes, and after discharging these take back the
fresh shift to their work, In
this way there will be little in-.
convenience fell on account of
the distance at which the men
live from the mine, the only
thing being that they will need
to be on hand in readiness to
tuke tho train about IS minutes
before the time for beginning
work.
None of the lol': in the town-
sit* have yet boen disposed of,
:md the plan they will adopt in
disposing of them will uot bo
settled until Mr. Blakemore, tho
general manager, has returned
from the Old Country. It is
probable that none of the lots
will be sold, but that they will
bo leased to those occupying
them on some fair basis, so that,
as Mr. Pernio says, the miners
may always bo assured of cheap
and comfortable places to live
in. It may bo that the lots on
one of the streets (the main ono)
will be sold to private buyers by
auction or otherwise for business
purposes, and the remainder of
tho townsite retained by tho
Company for rental. Mr. Fernio
believes that worldngmen who
are seeking a home for themselves should not bo subjected
to boom prices in obtaining them.
The Company, ho says, will not
sock to make money in tho real
estate business,
Speaking of the prospects for
business of tho Company he
thought thoy would be ablo
sooner or later to supply the
market of Spokane and a great
part of Montana as well, for although the coal now supplied in
thoso places is aud will continue
to be lower-priced than the
Crow's Nest Company could supply coal for, theCrow'sNust article
is so much superior that oven at
perhaps twice the price it would
still be an economy to use it.
Mr. Fernio thinks that, after tho
railway has opened up the country, it will not bo long before
his Company's inino will have
reached an output of l,()iiu tons a
day.
Mr. Pernio returned to the
mine again on Wednesday.
A Troublesome Bridge   Progress  of
lhe Work   A Matter of Supplies.
The work of I ruck lay ing on
the Crow's Nest Railway was
finished westward from Macleod
to the South Fork of Old Man
River some time ago, but it will
bo impossible to got beyond that
point till the big bridge that
spans the river there has been
put in. This point is about 3*1
miles west of Macleod, or half
way from Macleod to Crow's
Nost Lake, The bridge will be
about 001) feet long and about
150 foot high at tho highest
point. Apparently no very careful investigation of the ground
at the point selected hns been
made, and when the foundations
for the bridge CUIUS lo lie put in
it was discovered that the Shifting sand would not bear the
weight and they went out. A
great deal of time wus lost, and
when the men began to experiment with concrete the weather
had become so cold that the concrete would freeze before it had
time to set. They then sought
to moderate the climate by building tires in the vicinity of the
concrete to allow it to harden
before freezing, and they are
working away on that principle
now.
Beyond the site of this bridge
tho grade is all ready foi* the
rails right into tlio Puss, and
once the iron can bo got over the
river it will not bo long before
the construction trains will be at
the Lake.
Between Crow's Nest Lakt
and Kootonay River  there an
from the mine |Vnha^ 2'000 men "ow at vvork
grading, etc,   West of Wardner,
through Isadora Canyon, past
Port Steele and on to the west
end of Moyio Lake there are
number of camps and the work
is going ahead briskly. From
Moyie Luke to the mouth of
Goat River on Kootenay Lake
tho tote road is pretty W( .
covered with teams hauling in
supplies and materials forwarded
by steamer from Nelson,
The great difficulty all along
has been the getting in of supplies, but it is likely that here-
'after provisions will be more
i.lnindiint, and thoro seems no
reason to doubt that before this
year closes the rails will be laid
through to Kootenay Lake.

NOTES OF THE LATEST NEWS.
By Wire and Post From all Parts of
the World.
Last week the body of a man
named McNaught was found in
the timber near Slocan City, lying between two logs, and the
surroundings indicated that he
had been killed by the accidental
discharge of his Winchester.
Tlie carcas of a deer was found
near by and blood stains on the
snow indicated that Mr. McNaught was following a socond
animal that had beon wounded.
The gun had evidently been discharged while tho unfortunate
man was climbing the first of tho
two logs botween which the body
was found. Death must have
boon instantaneous, as the bullot
entered the mouth and passed
out through the back of the
head. ^L—.
In the Slocan they have a
novel method of breaking the
trails through the snow for raw-
hiding. In tho bottom of a
heavy ore sack is placed about
throe inches of hay tightly
packed. The mule's hoof is
then placed inside and after
packing hay around the log the
sack is tied at the top. Nearly
all of the animals objoct to the
shoes al first and do vigorous
kicking, but after a few trials
thoy usually settle down to the
now order of things, ami appreciate tho fact that while the
homely shoos may bo objectionable from the standpoint of appearance thoy save a great deal
of labor and energy,
A warrant is out for the arrest
of Robert Stevenson, president
of the Granite Creek Mining Co.,
for obtaining money under false
pretences. It, is claimed that
Stevenson obtained a 1)11,200 diamond ring from Miss Christina
Christie of Ottawa, in exchange
for seven shnres in a mining
company, which shares ho represented to be worth #700. Miss
Christie says he guaranteed lhat
tho investment would realize he:

fourths of a mile from the town,
Thoy have uncovered a largo
ledge of good looking rock and
will start now to sink a shaft.
Win. Ptietler and A. T. Fuller
are hard at work on the Tracy,
about ono fourth of a mile above
town. They report a small
lodge of very high grade 01'C,
with the lodge increasing rapidly in widtli ns depth is attained.
Win. Kelly is working on the
Lady Elgin one mile south of
town. He has a ledge of ovor
L'M feet wide, in which there
aro some very rich veins of gold,
silvor, and antimony,
Contractor Martin Anderson
is at work night and day on the
Estelhi with four as good miners
as can be found in East Kooteiiay,-—Joe Walkins, Duncan
Brander, Evan Christian, and
Chris, Christend. They are iu
about KiO feet with the tunnel.
Logs are being got out for a
school house, church, and building to be used for miners' meetings, dances, and for public uses
generally, The little town looks
lively with all tlio new buildings
going up. Application will short'
ly be made for a post office and
school. Mines make towns and
Tracy will be no exception to
the rule, as tliere are over 30
properties that will be worked
extensively early in tho spring,
and besides this tliere are nearly
iion clninis to Imve assessment

headquarters for all the district

ihey are on the way to secure
the miserable pittance for which
they toiled on llie Crow's Nest
Railway and which has been
withheld or embezzled by some
rascal. Complaints of this kind
nre common now. While tho

The shocking  murder which: "a"' enough to have a few dol-
we report in another column in
day Is apparently but the climax
of the litter lawlessness which is
now prevalent in many nf the
construction camps along the
line of the Crow's N'esi Kailway,
at least from Kootenay River
eastward,   Fighting among the
gangs  nf   men   U  of   the  innsl
common occurrence, the brawls
sometimes terminating very ser-

frequent are the reports that
have been brought in us on this
subject    that    there    seemn    no

ent there are two licensed hotels
on the ground, two stores, and
a number of miscellaneous log

Tlie tote road from the Klk
River crossing direct to Wardner
is Hearing completion, and will
shorten tlie distance between
these points full a miles. This
road, following the right of way,
leaves Sand Point about 0 miles
to. the south and will connect
with the government road aboul
a mile and a half south of Six-
mile Hal.
Corporal McNair, N. W. M. P.
0110 of the Jubilee contingent, is
now stationed permanently at
the police station two miles
from the crossing. This station
should bo moved to the crossing
where the population is now centered. Iu case of urgent call it
might as well bo in Halifax asiu
its present position. However,
since the appearance of the police there has been much loss
tendency to fisticuffs and disorder.
At the last sitting of court in
tho Crow's Nest Hotel, ono .1. B.

sentenced to 30 days hard labor
