Review of Progress: 0052.0469



            Whilst the total sales of the Mountain mills during the past twelve months slightly exceeded the total of the preceding year, prices ranged about $1.50 per M less.  The total sales approximated 400,000,000 feet, and there is on hand at the Mountain mills some 200,000,000 feet, about 30,000,000 feet more than at the close of 1910.  The chief cause of the practical demoralization of the market during the latter half of the past year was the dumping of American lumber of low grade at less than cost on the prairie market, thereby making it impossible for the Mountain manufacturers to secure an even break on any sales they made of this class of material.  American competition was not felt so far as the higher grades of manufactured lumber were concerned, the home (American) market being able to take care of all the upper grades manufactured.

            Recent reports from Ottawa indicate that the government propose to enforce strictly the customs regulations governing the importation of rough lumber and if this prove to be the case, an equitable measure of protection will be provided the mountain millmen, which should prove a valuable stimulus to business.  The prospects for a heavy demand for lumber from the prairies during 1912 are extremely favorable and if a stop be put to the dumping of American rough lumber in the prairie market, the Mountain mills should be kept busily employed supplying demands.


            Notable features of the past year’s mining operations in this district were the discovery of two new bodies of ore.  One at Kimberely, on claims owned by the Canadian Consolidated Mining and Smelting company, adjoining the Sullivan group.  This ore body is said to carry heavy deposits of silver and lead, with a smaller proportion of zinc than is carried in the old Sullivan workings and in the North Star group.  Development work is being pushed rapidly on these claims, with very satisfactory results.

            The other find of first-class importance was on Perry Creek, a rich gold bearing quartz.  Heretofore the operations on Perry Creek have been confined to placer and the discovery of this rich quartz body may be looked upon as the beginning of a new era in mining activity.

            There has been very little placer mining done during the past season on Perry Creek, but on Wild Horse Creek, back of Fort Steele, the Chinese miners worked steadily all summer.  Whilst no definite reports have as yet been received of their clean-ups, it is known that the season’s work was highly remunerative.

            The main work of the Canadian Consolidated M. and S. company, in this district, was carried on at Kimberley, the St. Eugene mine at Moyie being practically closed.

            The total shipments of silver lead from this district since January 1st aggregate 25,000 tons.

            The anticipated early opening of the Kootenay Central railway has led to the resumption of work on some of the older properties, that have for a long time past been idle, and once that railway is in running order the ore shipments from this district will show a marked increase.  Elsewhere in this issue will be found additional notes covering the mining operations in this district.

            There is every justification for the belief that 1912 will witness a marked expansion in mining operations throughout this section of the province, particularly so if certain tests now being made satisfactorily solve the problem of treating our zinciferous ores.  One of the earliest outcomes of the solution of this problem will, in all likelihood, be the erection of a zinc smelter at Marysville.

            There is good reason to anticipate great activity on Perry Creek during the coming year.  Reports to hand indicate that strong financial interests will undertake the development of the recently discovered quartz claims, and it is quite likely that the Guggenheims will actively proceed with the operation of the placer claims in which they have secured an interest.


            Although quartz mining has been going on in this section for over twenty years, and mineral mines have paid and are still paying well, general interest in mining has been quiescent for some time, due partly to the want of adequate transportation – partly to the operations of ill-advised and ill-equipped companies of small financial status – partly to the exorbitant prices asked by the owners when their properties were in demand and partly to fashion.

            We have insight a very varied list of mineral bearing lodes, some of the outcrops being exceptionally well defined, but most of them are concentrating properties where transportation is most important; these are more often than not held under crown grant in which case annual work is not requisite as long as the taxes are paid, and the owners seem reluctant to do any further work until such time as they see some chance of making a profit.  As one can readily understand this does not conduce to progression but rather stagnation; and investors, very often, and they can scarcely be blamed for so doing, follow the line of argument, that if the owners have not sufficient confidence in their property to continue working, they should not expect strangers who are not expected to know as much about the local condition as the owners to fall over each other to obtain possession at exorbitant prices.

            Quick returns with small profits should be the slogan of every prospector, and there is no doubt that following this advice consistently would in time increase the demand, create interest and tend to prospect more country, as very few prospectors can afford to pick up new properties while still holding old ones.

            We have in this country several mining camps, the biggest of which is the Tracy Creek camp, including all properties on Wolf, Wasa, Lewis, Tracy, Six Mile, Grundy, Four Mile, Spirit, Victoria and Tackle Creeks.  This is essentially a galena and copper camp, the showings being very strong and well defined, the show property being the Estella group with its large ore body of zinc galena in sight and its cross ledge of copper pyrites with tetrahedrite.  A consolidation of the interests in this camp would give a strong mining company an investment that would tax their administrative ability but would be a financial success that would be the making of the country.

            Similarly the St. Mary’s and Whitefish camps principally copper, have excellent showings, particularly those on Alki Creek and Whitefish and it is safe to predict that the future copper camp of B.C. will be situated in this locality, as nowhere else can be seen such wide and continuous lodes as in this section and all containing copper pyrite.  These camps cover an enormous scope of country of plutonic rocks, as a glance at the map will demonstrate, and it would be a bold man indeed, who after inspection, would advance a derogatory opinion.

            The chief point of interest now is the Perry Creek camp with its continuous ledges of free milling gold quartz.  These are distinctive of this locality which is very circumscribed east and west, but in a southerly direction extends on to Goat River on West Kootenay.  A good deal of desultory prospecting has been done in this camp but no systematic development has been attempted and until this is done no data can be furnished that would enable investors to get a line on the capabilities of the camp, but there is no doubt with regard to the quality of the surface ore as lately exposed.  One may possibly mistake other things for gold but there is no mistaking gold when in sight, and particularly when found in several places.  The ledges in this camp are very continuous, running for miles practically north and south.

            Then the Skookumchuk camp is calling for notice.  This camp is generally a base metal one carrying copper chiefly, with galena and cobalt and nickel as side issues, the properties here are little developed, but the outcrops and indications are excellent and fully warrant further work and so with Sheep Creek, Wild Horse, Lost Creek, Sand Creek, Sheep Mountain and Tobacco Plains camps, all of them with good showings, although the work in most places has not been of a permanent character.

            In this short sketch I have not included the Kimberley and Moyie camps.  These are well known and include dividend paying properties of world-wide reputation and a descrip- (Continued on page six) tion of which is hardly called for; still they may be noted as showing what this country is capable of, and it is natural that if sufficient attention can be drawn to our mineral deposits, investigation will follow, with investment to back it up and it would not be long before this division will take the place it is entitled to, viz., second to none.

            The progress of the city during 1911 was certainly along lines eminently safe and sane.  Many new buildings were erected, both for commercial and residential purposes, but none too many of either have been built.  Such civic improvements as were got underway were entirely necessary and represent wise expenditure of civic money.

            Brief reference is made below to some few of the more noteworthy building undertakings of the past year.

            It is only necessary to mention the post office building.  That is a Dominion government undertaking that will fill a long felt want.

            The Hanson block, now all but ready for complete occupation, is one of the most substantial business blocks in the city.  It will be occupied, in the course of a few days, by the Royal bank, the fixtures now being placed in position.  The bank will have very handsome and commodious quarters, centrally located.  Adjoining the bank premises come the offices of Messrs. Beale and Elwell, making in many respects the most commodious and conveniently situated real estate offices in the city.  Adjoining Messrs. Beale and Elwell’s offices is the new cigar store just opened by S.A. Reid, a very comfortable rendezvous for the lover of good smokes.  The last store on the ground floor is at present unoccupied, but that it will soon be seized upon by some up-to-date business man is a foregone conclusion.

            Upstairs on the first floor, one passes first the handsome suite of rooms secured by the popular dentist, Dr. F.B. Miles.  Very costly and attractively furnished is this suite of rooms.  The front outside suite of offices is at present occupied by Lawyer Geo. H. Thompson, we say at present, for in the very near future George Thompson will likely occupy rooms specially provided for county court judges in the provincial government offices.

            Beyond Mr. Thompson’s offices come those of R.B. Benedict, the energetic and ever obliging secretary of the board of trade.

            To the rear of the first floor are the rooms of the new Cranbrook club, now being tastefully and handsomely fitted up for occupation by the clubbites of the city.

            The second floor is entirely given over to bed rooms to be used as an annex to the Queen’s hotel, which will give that popular hostelry some of the choicest sleeping apartments in the city.

            The furnishings throughout the Hanson block are first-class in every respect.

            The Imperial hotel addition is another decided improvement to the city’s hotel accommodation.  This new structure is also nearing completion and will be a decided credit to the city.

            Campbell and Manning’s fine building on Hanson avenue is about completed.  A feature of this building is the magnificent basement, which has been leased by Hort Campbell and will be fitted up as a bowling alley and billiard parlor.  Cranbrook will be able to boast of the most complete bowling alley, in every respect, in East Kootenay, when Hort Campbell gets his fixtures all in place.

            The two stores on the ground floor, for which tenants have not as yet been secured, will be among the choicest in the city and will speedily be rented.  The second story is divided up into some eighteen bedrooms, leased to the Hotel Cranbrook, and a nicer lot of bedrooms it would be hard for any hotel to secure.  These rooms are being quite elaborately fitted up, every provision being made for the comfort of the patrons of the Hotel Cranbrook in George Hoggarth’s well known generous manner.

            Whilst the Hotel Cranbrook is thus making temporary provision for the care of their large clientele, it is the well known intention of the proprietors to proceed this spring, with the erection of a large brick addition to that popular hostelry.  This will make the hotel Cranbrook even more popular than it is today with the traveling public.

            There is prospect of a large addition being built to the Cosmopolitan hotel early next spring.  This is to be of brick.

            Another handsome addition to the city’s commercial buildings, erected last year was the concrete block for the Cranbrook Jobbers Ltd., where a large and steady increasing wholesale trade is being carried on to the direct benefit of this city and all associated in the enterprise.

            The Cranbrook Steam Laundry represents another large investment of capital and a move in the forward direction.  Cranbrook is big enough to support an all white laundry and the patronage Mr. Davis has so far met with is sure proof that his confidence was not misplaced.

            The Agricultural hall, an enterprise of our local Agricultural association, is another noteworthy structure of the past year.

            To enumerate all the improvements and enlargements made to city stores and places of business would occupy more space than is available in this issue, but that a great deal of money was expended along these lines during the past year is the surest evidence of the solid prosperity of Cranbrook.  The merchants have abundant confidence in the city’s future and do not hesitate to meet the demands for increased space and accommodation by expending money freely upon their premises and additions thereto.

            The predictions in the building line for this year of 1912 are very encouraging, but the Herald prefers to relate accomplished facts, and if only fifty per cent of the present talked of buildings are undertaken there will be a mighty interesting story to tell in our review of the city’s progress at the close of this year.



            The most noteworthy feature in connection with the past year’s municipal improvements has been the excellent start made with the installation of the sewerage system.  This important work is being carried on under the supervision of the John Galt Engineering company, of Winnipeg, who are acting as superintending engineers, on a commission basis.  Rapid progress has been made on the work, started the first week in October.  The early advent of snow and severe cold weather retarded progress somewhat, but the indications point to a relatively early completion of the entire work and well within the estimated cost.

            The construction and completion of the new city hall and jail, is another item in the municipal improvement program of considerable importance.  In appearance the new city hall is quite an imposing building.  It’s interior arrangements are somewhat unsatisfactory in that quite inadequate accommodation is provided for the city clerk’s offices.  The council chamber is a handsome room, but it might well have been limited somewhat in size to provide more accommodation for the really important office of the city clerk.  In other respects the building is a commodious and comfortable one.  The jail accommodation is good as far as it goes, and a great improvement over what has existed in the past.

            The expenditures on street grading and new sidewalks during the year amounted to $3,500.

            The waterworks were overhauled during the year and improvements made in the dam and reservoir, the latter being thoroughly cleansed out and enlarged.  As a result the pressure has been increased and the quality of the water improved.  The estimated receipts from the waterworks for the year are $20,000 for the eleven months to the end of November, $17,605 had been collected.

            The assessment for the past year compares as follows with that of 1910:

            Estimated value of buildings                                                  $1,007,000

            Value of land                                                                               821,000

            Total valuation                                                                        $1,828,000


            Estimated value of buildings                                                  $   970,000

            Value of land                                                                               742,000

            Total valuation                                                                        $1,712,000



            During the past summer a marked activity in local real estate became noticeable.  City lots which for several years had been regarded as more or less valueless changed hands at good prices.  That section of the town, which had been regarded as permanently unsuitable for building purposes, as a result of the installation of the sewerage system, has been dried out and has enlarged the number of available business sites in close proximity to Baker street.

            Whilst the transactions in local real estate have not been characterized by anything in the nature of speculative buying, sales have been numerous and at good figures.  The bulk of the purchases have been made by local men for more or less immediate use.  The Townsite agent reports sales for the year amounting to over $80,000.

            Several blocks of acreage on the outskirts of the city have also changed hands and four of these have been subdivided into building lots and have met with ready sale.  The Townsite agency also opened up a strip of blocks to the south of the city, formerly held in reserve.

            The real estate transactions of the past year, with the promise of exceptional activity during the coming twelve months, suggests the probability of something in the nature of a boom to city real estate during 1912.

            During the past year farm lands in the surrounding districts were in great demand, and a great deal of stump land, with only small clearings, sold at prices varying from $15 to $25 per acre.



            The past year was a busy one from the builders’ point of view.  More buildings of a permanent character were erected than ever before in the city’s history and the start thus made promises to be followed up this year on an even greater scale.

            The Herald has secured figures, more or less accurate, of the total building carried out during the past twelve months, showing the substantive total, upwards of $190,000 was actually expended and the buildings completed.  A start was made on buildings representing an outlay of upwards of $150,000, and these are now well underway or nearing completion.

            The buildings in course of construction include the new post office, the Indian school at St. Eugene Mission, and several private residences.  In addition to the numerous stores, additions to hotels, etc., upwards of forty private residences were erected in and around town during the past twelve months.  A notable feature of the year’s building operations has been the steady increase in the use of brick, a locally manufactured article that is giving entire satisfaction.

            The prospects for the coming year in the building line are very encouraging.  It is hardly safe to take for granted all the proposed buildings, but it is reasonably certain that several now being discussed will be gone on with.  Among the proposed buildings is a large brick addition to the Hotel Cranbrook, a start upon which will be made early in the spring.  Another important structure which will likely be under way early in the spring is an addition to the Cosmopolitan hotel.  There is prospect of an addition to the present government buildings in the shape of provision for a jail, and, possibly of a land registry office.



            The hardware merchants report greatly increased sales, with collections well met and cash sales averaging 25 per cent of the total business.  More attention has been paid to the wholesale end of the business than in former years with very satisfactory results.

            Dry goods and men’s furnishings: Merchants engaged in this line of business report a greater volume of business than in the preceding year, but with smaller cash sales to credit sales in proportion.

            The butchers report a steadily increasing volume of business with a scarcity of live stock and a consequent increase in price.  The chief by-product, hides, has found a steady market throughout the year at prices ranging from eight to ten cents per lb. f.o.b. Cranbrook.

            Local grocers report a volume of business slightly in excess of last year, with prices at about the same figure.  A more careful policy of handling credit accounts was inaugurated during the year.

            The furniture business was hard hit during the closing months of this year by reason of the coal strike, a number of railway employees who, under normal conditions would have made considerable purchases in that time, refrained from so doing owing to the possibility of the railway companies making greater reductions in their working staff.

            While at times retail payments were slow they were quite up to the average of previous years.



            The only failure reported throughout the past year in the city of Cranbrook was that of a small firm of tailors and cleaners and their total liabilities were insignificant.

            During the past twelve months the following business changes took place:

            W. Kerr disposed of his livery business to J.A. McDonald.

            The Wentworth hotel was sold by P. Matheson to J. McTavish, formerly of Moyie.

            McCallum and Co. hardware sold out to F. Parks and Co.

            Tyson Bros. sold their half interest in the East Kootenay Butcher company to J.M. Doyle, who is now sole proprietor of the business.

            Quain Electric company sold to Davis Bros. Electric Co., Ltd.

            The Moyie Leader, one of the pioneer newspapers of the district, suspended publication.

            The Moyie branch of the Imperial bank closed.

            Frank Desrosier, butcher and rancher, Jaffray, sold to John Fournier, Pincher Creek, Alta., consideration $28,000.

            The Empire Electric company was organized by Maurice Quain and J. Davis.

            R.P. Moffat opened up the Model Variety store.

            E.G. Gwynne, formerly of Moyie, opened up a confectionery, stationery and cigar store.

            S.A. Reid opened a cigar and news stand in the Hanson block.

            W. Halsall purchased W. Hill’s dry goods business.

            The Cranbrook Jobbers Ltd., was organized.

            F.M. McPherson, formerly of Lethbridge, opened an undertaking business in connection with which he acts as manager of the new furniture department installed by the East Kootenay Produce and Provision Co.

            Raworth Bros., jewelers, opened a branch in Lethbridge.

            C.T. Davis, formerly of Spokane, has established a first-class up-to-date steam laundry.

            P. Matheson, proprietor of the Imperial hotel, has erected a large addition to his present premises.

            A.J. Mott established a new garage, erecting a commodious brick building for the purpose.



            During the past year a vast amount of work was done on the roads and bridges throughout the district.  Upwards of $80,000 was expended on roads and over $40,000 on bridges.  For the coming year even larger appropriations are anticipated, the works recommended by the local Conservative organization and Superintendent Reid, in fact, call for an appropriation largely in excess of $200,000.

            Some details of the proposed works may be given as follows:

            Main trunk road, Wardner to Goatfell, $39,000.

            Trunk road, Cranbrook to Kimberley, $12,000.

            Trunk road, Cranbrook to Fort Steele via Mission, $28,000.

            Trunk road, Fort Steele to Wasa, $22,000.

            Marysville to St. Mary’s Lake and Whitefish, $7.000.

            Wasa to Mud Creek, $10,000.

            Wasa to Skookumchuk roads, $6,000.

            Wycliffe to Cherry Creek, $3,000.

            St. Mary’s Prairie settlement roads, $3,000.

            Perry Creek road from Crothers to Shorty Creek, $4,000.

            Kimberley roads to Sullivan, North Star and Stemwinder, $4,000.

            Wattsburg and Weaver Creek roads, $1000.

            Curzon to Kingsgate, $2,000.

            Society Girl road, $500.

            Wasa to Tracy, $1000.

            Wycliffe to Cherry Creek, $3,000.

            Gold Creek settlement roads, $9,000.

            Roads from Fort Steele to Wasa, to Wild Horse, to Bull River, upper and lower roads, to Westport Junction roads, and to Rocky Ford, $22,000.

            Westport to Mathers, $2,000.

            Mission to Wasa, upper road, $1000.

            Mission to Wassa, lower road, via Mathers, $9000.

            Mission to Wasa, via Marysville, $3000.

            A total proposed expenditure on roads of upwards of $160,000.  In addition the following expenditures are contemplated on streets adjacent to and outside Cranbrook city limits, $5,000.

            Fort Steele, $4,000.

            Marysville, $500.

            Kimberley, $500.

            Wardner, $500.

            Moyie, $1,000.

            Miscellaneous roads not enumerated, $12,000.

            Plant $6,000, bringing the total estimate to close upon $200,000.

            In addition to these generous estimates for road work there will be a large appropriation asked for bridge purposes including a vote of $35,000 for the proposed bridge across the Kootenay at Gateway.
