The following petition lias been
forwarded to llie Postmaster
General by the residents of l-'ort
Tu the, Tlie Honorable, The
Postmaster General of Iho Dominion of Canada.
We the the undersigned citizens of Fort Steele, having heard
with regret, that our weekly mail
service wus to be reducod during
the ooming winter to ft semi-monthly mail, which at this lime
would bo detrimental to the milling and commercial interests of
Port Sleele.
At a mass meeting called, and
held in the Public School ro.oin
nt Port Steele on October 26th.
It was resolved that a committee of four be appointed lo draft
and forward a petition to tho
Postmaster General, stating lhat
it is absolutely necessary to the
increased business and prosperity
of Fort Steele that the weeldy
mail service be continued and
lhat the round trip lie made in
seven days. We trust that you
will give this nmtter.yourcareful
consideration, and your petitioners will over pray.
Tho above petition received
128 signatures in two hours and
many did mil have an opportunity
of signing on account of the mail
closing ul I p.m. and il. being
necessary lo forward the petition
at once.
In commenting on tlio above
article, we will say, that last
winter a similar petition was forwarded lo the Postmaster General slating thi' fact that a weekly
mail wasa necessity to Ibis district, why at Ibis particular time
when our commercial and milling
interests ure steadily increasing,
our population having increased
IHO per cent, in Ibe last year, a
large amount of capital already
invested in tho distriot in mines,

British Columbia, Jncli Welch
who has just returned I'ruiu Fort j
Steele, Brilisli Columbia, where i
he has been engaged in mining'
lor about 18 months, is nl the
Cosmopolitan, and in conversation with a Herald reporter lold
something of ihe mining interests
of that section and incidentally
mentioned that Mr. McQuaid hail
hold of a first class mining proposition in the shape of a bond.
The property is on Weaver creek
not far from Fort Steele. The
mine hits about; live feet ofquunx.
There is some 3' 10 tons of ore on
the dump running. aboul Si'a tu
the ton in gold. Mr. McQuaid
has a bond on three adjoining
properties and lias made a location of an extension of one. He
is in lirst class health and Mr.
Welch says expects to be in
Helena very soon.
Fort Steele is situated about
Kill miles north of Kalispell and
almost To miles due west of the
famous Crow's Nest Pass. At
present the place is without railway facilities but Mr. Welch says
that there is every reason to believe that a railroad -will be
eonstriicted into the district next
year when the Canadian Pacific
completes the branch from Fort
McLeod, N, W, T. to Fori Steele
and on through to Nelson, British Columbia. The road is
graded as far west as the Crow's
Nest Pass. It is generally understood that the line will be extended next year, With the advent
of the railroad ho predicts a boom
for the district. At present there
are somo 500 men in and about
Fort Steele. Tho mining is
placer, quartz and some silver
and lead, He is interested in
the former in a property known
as the International in which Col.
0. P, Chisholm, Congressman
Hai'tnian and other Bozeman people as well as Sam Schwab and
other Helena people are interested. Mr. Welch has been busy
driving a tunnel -100 feet in order
to tap what is supposed to bo it
channel of Wild Horse creek.
Before driving a tunnel a shaft
was sunk for prospecting purposes and ground struck that
went 7!i cents lo the pan. That
ground will be worked hy means
of this tunnel and Mr. Welch
expects very favorable results.
He is in Montana for the purpose
of conferring witli the other interested parlies and expects lo
return to Fort Sleele in a week
or ten days. He snys ihe placer
mining season there commences
about the middle ul' April and
lasts until November lath. There
is always an abundanco of water.
One of ihe largest placer mining
companies is the Invicta, an
English properly, This works
about lu men. The company has
about H) feet of gravel nnd is
treating Uie same by the hydraulic process. The stock of the
company has recently advanced
in London from 20 to:.'!! shillings
per share which lends him lo .believe Ihe company isdoing holler
than ever before,
Among the silver lends he
ineiilions very favorably tlio

The camp's mail at presold
arrives once a week via Golden,
a station on the Canadian Pacific.
An effort is being made to have
a mail route established between
Kalispell and Fort Steele. This
will be a boon to' the Americans
there and thoy comprise a majority of the inhabitants, as tlie
mail for this country at present
reaches there by a "roundabout
way; it has to go to Seattle and
Victoria, then east hy the Canadian Pacific.
In high water boats make the
trip from Jennings, Montana, on
the Great Northern up the Koot-
eiltiy to Fort Steele carrying
freight and passengers. But the
water is low now and one must
make the journey either to Kalispell or Golden or across the
mountains lo Nelson on horseback. Mr, Welch and seven
others came out of tho country
in a very novel manner. Thoy
built a Hat boat and lloated down
the river to Jennings. He found
the trip not altogether disagreeable at this season of the year.

mon held up the store employes
while the third went to the bank

not quickly obeyed, 'ind the robber fired again, whereupon the
cashier's hands went up. Tho
manager of the store was then
forced to open tho bank door, and
after gathering up all the money
in sight the robbers marched the
cashier and store employes into
the street with hands up. Thoy
then rushed out tho buck way
with they booty.
Citizens attracted by the shots
had pretty well surrounded the
building by that time, and boiu

two of whom, Charles Jones and
William Smith, were killod by

The National Matte Smelter,
A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities where
lead ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
hits been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide, ores, in capacity of 2 to 80
tons por day. It is the simpllest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating that
is known to-day.
It requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the smelter after iI, is started, The sul-
phor in the ore is its natural
fuel only, and its cost has no
comparison with any other process of concentrating,
We are prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining people, sot
it up and furnish our men to run
it for them on easy payments.

Ill our issue of last
staled that James P.
had organized a wonll
uie of Montreal capitalists to
invest hi British Columbia milling
properties. As soon its he returned to Rossland ho began
looking up a proposition for his
people, and ho soon came to tho
conclusion that The Miner has
long held—-namely, that the
townsite of Rossland was tho
biggest gold mine of them all.
Having come to this conclusion Mr. Wardner set about
securing an option on all the
unsold lots on tho townsite, Today ho holds an agreement, on
which ho has made the lirst payment, to deliver to him 8-12 lots
for the lump sum of §176,000.
This property includes every
unsold lot on the townsite, which
moans every lot south of Thompson avenue except one half block
and two-thirds of the lots between Lo Roi avenue and Thompson avenue,
This is tlie biggest, real estate

there is no necessity for National
club to put up the §10,000 purse,
as at tho four-round go at the
pavilion §1-1,000 was taken in. As
a ten-pound sot-to between Sharkey and Corhett is likely to bo si
linish light, at least tho same
amount would be taken in.
Danny Lynch said last night the
National athletic club was about
to offer a fair purse for a finish

for Sharkey, and in ease Corhett
does not agree to a dale for a
fight, he will post the balance of

London i—"Peddler" Palmer,
of England, who holds tho title
of champion bantam-weight of
the world, defeated Johnny Murphy, of Boston, in a twenty
round go before the National
Sporting Club, Tho quarters of
the club were crammed to their
utmost capacity, many fashionable sports being among the
spectators. The opinion among
Johnny Murphy's friends was
that he had cut out a tough job
for himself, and Palmer was a
hot favorite at odds of (i to -l.
When tlie pugilists entered the
ring it was easily seen that both
had paid strict attention to training, and it was also plain to
sports that thoy were in for a
long and tedious flghti Palmer
meant to take no chances, but to
win on poiutSi At no stage of
the twenty rounds did ho attempt a knock out. He punished
the American very little, and in
fact there was very little blood
shod. Palmer, however, always
had the light in hand, and al no
stage was Murphy dangerous.
The Londoner depended mainly
on his loft hand; The glove was
seldom out of his rivals face, and
scarcely more than a donon right
handed cross-counters wore ox-
changed. The major portion of
these were delivered by Murphy,
but ho was unable lo got near
enough to do any damage. Palmer's right-handers wore of the
slightest possible kind: Tlie
affair was Voted very lame, tho
only redeeming feature being
Palmer's cleverness andMitrphy's
gaimmess, There was very
little applause at the llnisli.
