Cranbrook Notes: 0050.0300

Editorial Notes.

            Cranbrook is the attractive point in Southeast Kootenay these days.


            The more people know of the resources of Southeast Kootenay, the better satisfied they are that money invested here will bring good returns.


            The real development of Southeast Kootenay will begin after the completion of the railroad to Kootenay lake.  It will then be possible to get in material, and machinery from the east or west at figures that will encourage people to go ahead.


            Anyone who will take the trouble to investigate will learn that there is more work being done in the way of mineral development in Southeast Kootenay this year than is generally believed.  New prospects are being opened, assessment work is being performed, and all that is being done goes to demonstrate that this is a great mineral country.  With the railroad completed, next season will see hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in mining in Southeast Kootenay, and it is fortunate for those who have invested in Cranbrook that this city is the central point of this whole mining section.  Cranbrook needs no booming or praise.  A map of Southeast Kootenay tells the whole story.
