MINING  NEWS.
A rich strike is reported on Messrs
Miti'lii'll-Innes' claim, on Horse Thief
creek, known 41s the " Pretty Girl."
A recent nssny for gold from the quartz
ledge on Mr. Watolet's clnims on Buga-i
boo creek, shewed u value of (21.20 gold
per too.
Mr. 11, K, Walton, assayer, Into of
Fort Steele, litis established an assay
ofHce in Golden, and is prepared to make
reliable assays of all kinds of ores.
Mr. Denno has been awarded tbe
contract for 50 feet of shafting and 180
feet of tunnel work on the Standby and
Maud S., owned by Strncey and Jolilto.
Prof. Ilardmnn arrived In Golden on
Monday and proceeded to the MoMurdo
district to make an examination of the
International group of claims, lie wus
accompanied by Mr. B. J.Touusond.
Mr. l'ollew Harvey, M.E., of Vancouver, arrived in Golden on Tuesday
afternoon and at once proceeded to
Carbonate, whence ho goes to Prairie
mountain to examine the group of claims
now being developed by Messrs Mitchell-
Inncss.
On Wednesday the Bald Mountain
Mining Co. shipped to W. PellewIIurvey
of Vancouver a sample ton of free milling
ore from their claims on Bald mountain,
near Donald, for tho purpose of having a
mill test made. The company intend to
loso no time in finding out the exact
value of the large vein recently struck.
It is probable that at an earlv date a
wagon road will be constructed from
Bear creek station into the McMurdo
district. The distance from Carbonate
to Prairie mountain is said to be 42 miles
while the distance from Bear creek to
the same place is not mure than 14 miles.
Such a road would be of immense benefit to a largo section of the McMurdo
district.
Messrs. \\\ II. Leo and W. II, Kinnis-
ten of Calgary passed through town on
Wednesday on their way to Calgary.
They have been Inspecting the Bald
.Mountain Group and stale that they
found everything very much to their
liking. Several assays have been re
ceived recently all of which go to prove
that the Company have one of the best
properties in the country.
Messrs,I. Adler and G. Upton paid a
visit to Vermont creek last week to
obtain further samples of the copper ore
loiind on the live claims located on the
divide between Vermont creek and Cupper creek by Tip Johnson and Mr, Upton.
Tho samples brought io by them are
from the surface uiul are magnillcent
samples of copper pyrites. There is an
immense showing on all five claims.
Messrs Lee and Kinnistcn of the Bald
Mountain Co. have been at Donald during the past week making arrangements
for the shipment of a ton of ore to the
sampling works in order th have a
thorough test made of tbe quartz found
in the tunnel. If the result proves satisfactory, machinery will at once be
procured with a view to working the
mines. As the ore is free milling, it will
be treated right at tlie mine, whero all
necessary watei power can be procured.
Sir. P. Watelet came down on Monday
from bis claim at tiie head of Bugaboo
creek, bringing with bim a ton uf ore
from the Surprise claim. This has been
shipped to the Smelter at Everett,
Wash. II this sample shipment. givcB
satisfactory returns it is the intention of
the syndicate to begin at onco the construction of a sleigh road from the
Columbia river to tho head of Bugaboo
creek aud ship out the ore with teams
during tho winter months. Mr. Wtttelot
goes to 'Everett to see to.the proper
sampling of tbe ore.
Mr. ll. Taylor, a West ICootonay pros-
pector, is at presont in Golden. He was
in the early days of the Slucan Interested
in some of the prominent Slucan silver
properties, but sold out ut the lime of
the first drop iu silver. This summer he
lias devoted to prospecting in East
Kootenay, coming iu by tho international boundary line and working north.
lie has covered a good deal of the country between the boundary and Golden,
and is now on hiB way north to thu
Blueberry to look over that country,
He says that he has seen some splendid
prospects in East Kootenay that can now
lie secured for small figures. These same
properties, if in West Kootenay, would
be snatched tip eagerly at ten times the
amounts asked for them. He and bis
partners located throe claims on ihe
divide between Horse Thief creek and
Xo. 2 creek, about 12 miles west of tlie
Columbin river. The ledge is about 20
feet wide and bus copper pyrites seat-

Messrs T. E. Wilson of Banff and (
8. McCarter of Golden have bonded to
the Outline Mining Co. of Vancouver for
$15,001) two claims on lee river, south
east of Lcaticholl, On these claims is a
quartz ledge about three feet wide,
carrying large quantities of grey copper
oro. The ledge crops out over the entire
length of the claims between walls of
shale and syenite. An assay from the
surface gave a retail of $(i0 in gold, 23:1
oz. iu silver and 9 per cent, copper, or a
total value of about (200 to the ton. Mr.
Willis, the manager oi the Channe Co.,
on his return from the coast, will put a
force of men at work opening up the
claims.
N.W.T. MINING  REGULATIONS.
A good deal of discussion has been indulged in by the papers iu general regarding the mining regulations recently
passed by tbe Dominion Government
with respect to tlie Yukon, but strange
to say there has not been very much discussion as to those of the old regulations
in force which deal with quartz mining.
This is probably accounted for by the
fact that up to this time quartz mining
has not been carried on to any very
great extent in the Territories.
The recent discoveries of large copper
deposits on the eastern slope of the
Rockies will however before long give a
great impetus to quartz mining in Alberta and the objectionable features of
the present regulations will then make
themselves more apparent. Under the
present state of the law any person desiring to secure a claim must stake out
Ihe ground personally and under no circumstances is permitted to do so by bis
agent. This is not as it should he if it
is desired that the people should be encouraged to develop Die mineral wealth
of the country, Many men who might
otherwise be inclined to interest themselves in mining do not care to undertake the physical hardships attendant
upon a trip into the mountains.) twenty
or thirty miles over a rough road and on
tbe hurricane deck of a cayuse.
Will the gentleman who prepared and
submitted those regulations to Council
lie good enough to give us the reason
why it was made imperative that claims
should be staked iu person and not by
un agent as is permitted iu this province?
Again under the present arrangement
u person staking a claim anywhere between the foot hills and l.uggun is compelled to make his record at the Dominion Lands Office at Calgary, though
there iH a Dominion Lands Office ut
Banff, where stub records could just as
welt he made and kept.
Then tho regulations us to transfer of
milling interests are of the worst possible type, particularly in cases where the
whole interest is not transferred, It is
needless to refer to those in detail but a
reference to the regulations themselves
will at once shew the need of a change,
if Iho transfer of interests is to be effected in a simple and expeditious manner.
Tbe sooner the Dominion authorities
adopt tho mining laws in force iu this
Province aud provide convenient places
for records, etc., to be made, tbe sooner
will the mineral hinds on the Eastern
slope of the Rockies lie explored and
levcloped,

East Kootonay Coppor Deposits.
The recent full in the price of silver
has caused some investors in Ihe Kootonay to turn tlieir attention to copper
gold properties, and a galena proposition
must indeed be a high grade one that
will al this time uttrnct capital. Those
interested in mining in East Kootenay
have reason to bo thankful that this
district is not a producer of silver alone,
but that il is u copper and gold producing district as well. Throughout the
whole of the district, from tlie international boundary lo a point several
milts north of Gulden, there have been
found large leads carrying high percentages of copper ore of various kinds���-in
fact there is scarcely a river or creek in
the district upon whose borders there
has not beon discovered valuable copper
deposits which await only the advent of
capital to open them up and place East
Kootenay in the front rank us a copper
producing district. The eastern slope of
the Koekies, in the district of Alberta, is
also shown to contain large tracts where
splendid showings of copper can bo
found, some recent locations there being
of a most promising character indeed.
Thus while we are firmly of the belief
that the depression in the silver market
will uot be of a lasting character, wo
liuve the satisfaction of knowing that
our  district  is  not  wholly dependent
reason he retarded to any great extent
in thoir progress, li the owners of
purely silver und lend properties will
exercise a little patience, we predict that
they will yet reap a harvest from their
investments.

tho Boutli oufltoru portion of lin&t Kootonay thu Government has ul>:n expended
largo HiiniH in tho building of wagon
i*0iula and trolls, connoctiug ii;'..' principal
now towns nnd mining eampd with tho
present business eontre of South Kooto-
nuy, tho flourishing town of l'ort Hf.'uk'.
The main lino of the Canadian Pacific
Hallway traverses tho northern part of
tho district, und tho Crow's Nest 1'asfe
branch of thu same railway now in
course of construction will cross th.*
southern part of thu district from East
tn West. It is moro than probable that a connecting lino will be
built along tin.11 vulfey of the Columbia
and Kootenay rivers as soon as thu output of tho mines and tlie agricultural
products of the valley will warrant tlie
uonstruction of sueh a lino. The results
of development during thu past season
fully justify the expectation thai, before
very long the construction of such a road
will bo undertaken, Until products aie
rapidly increasing' and demand
shipping facilities.
The numerous largo ami rapid streams
which fall into the Columbia and Kooto
nay rivers and Columbia lakes will furnish unlimited power at convenient
distances for transmission to tho mines
by electrical plants to"bo used ns required
for mining, milling ami oilier purposes.
No mining division in the province has
better natural facilities for mining) milling and shipping ore on a hirgo fKiolcand
at low rates. When the railway through
the Crow's Nont Puss !h completed, eolte
from tho Crow's KoBt conl fields can be
delivered at the 8meltorfl in this, district
nt rates that will enable thorn to handle
nil the smelting ores of tho district and
compete with smeHorB at the most
favored outside plneos,
.v.iN'ixi; locations.
The first mining camp south ofGoldon
is at Canyon Creek, flvo miles up the
Columbia Hiver from Golden, Here
Mt^srs. Mitohell-lnnes have built a dam
und Hume to divert the water of tho
���creek and allow tho gravel in thu creek
lied to be worked. f*!iafts have been
.mink in two places to bed-rock and a
tunnel 300 feet in length has boon
���driven, This work was done chiefly
during tlie season of latin. A considerable quantity of placer gold has been
found in Canyon Creek, ami the prospects arc that highly fuUisfaetory results
will be obtained there.
A few ir.ilua further south on Kiftecn-
..Milo Creek, near the summit between
the Columbia Kiver and thu north fork
-of the Spilhimaeheun Kiver, is a promis-
ilng copper property now timid devclup-
beiUg thu Toronto, Lancaster and Simeuu
ehiirtis, Mr. Mammon of Toronto owns
tho Constance and Atlanta, which are
also Crown granted. Sheriff Retlgravo
has two Crown granted claims and Mr.
Granger also has one. Thu diilicnliy
nut .Tubiloe Mountain appears tube
that the ore does not appear in any
well defined lead, but is found in pockets
or chimneys. All local mining men
agree in the opinion that Jubilee mountain contains immense Quantities of high
grade copper ore hut that the oro bodice
can only bo located by using a diamond
thill, by which means th;) whole of the
claims on tho mountain could ho cheaply
and thoroughly proBpectcd. It would lie
well if tlie several owners of theso claims
could come lo some arrongomenl whereby all those claims could be thrown into j
ono group and thu work of oponing-up
this copper-lined mountain bo curried on
by the owners jointly.
Bugaboo crook Hows into tho Columbia
river a short distance below Spllllmu-
cheou landing. This creek rises in Ihe
glaciers that are found upon the divide
betweon Kast Kootenay and thuLnrdoau-
Duncan river district, and it fiows
through a beautiful and, in most places,
heavily wooded valley about 2d miles in
length.
A ptud: trail loads to tho head of the
creek. There is no mining camp in the
northern district that can bo more
cheaply furnished with transportation
by means of a WOgon road than the
camps ou Bugaboo creek,
lion. Mr. Aylmer hnsdonoa large
amount of development work on a gold
properly sitimte about sewn or eight
miles-from (he Columbia Kiver. This
property should be a valuable one in
view of Iho easy means of access to the
river. At the head ui thu north fork of,
the Bugaboo there is a magnificent
group of claims being operated by Van-
���ouvor capitalists whose Interests are
wing looked after by Mr. 1'. Watelot,
M.K., of Vancouver. Iiiimense quantities of ore have already been mined ami
a shipment Is wo understand now being
made notwithstanding tiie expense ami
difficulty of getting tho ore to the river
under existing conditions. Tho ore is ot
an exceedingly high grade and carries
gcldi silver, copper and lead. If a sleigh
or wagon road were constructed to the
head of the creek this ore could lie
brought to Spillimnoliocn handing for
one qunrtor tho amount it now cost.i to
transport it.
At the head of tho middle fork of tiie
Bugaboo tiiere is a group of four claims
being developed by tho Golden & Fort I
greater j Stec|u oeveiopmoilt Co. under the man-1
nvrement of Mr. Mercier who located the
claims and has an interest in them. A
largo quantity of Idgh grade ore is ready
for shipment from thene claims but until SOtnothing is done towards improving
the trail the Company have decided to
dolcy shipment. Thu amount expended
ou the Bugaboo trail this year by the
Government was about -$160 and the
woret portion of the trail was loft untouched. There seoma to be something
wrong about this in view of the f.ict that
iu other portions of tho district wo find
trails being built hy the Government to
places whore uo appreciable amount has
been expended ns yet in development I
work,
At the bead of the south fork of the
Bugaboo thero are two claims located
by Messrs. lleffner and Mercier. These
claims curry good values in gold, thu
character of the lead being quart:', aud
iron sulphides similar to that found in
large bodies in thu McMurdo district
which lies some five miles further north
and to which district we shall in a future
isnie make reference with a view to
assisting in making more widely known
a portion of the l'rovinoe which must
sooner or later take ils place as one of
the richest and largest producing mining camps in the west.

WEST   PORT.
South East Kootenay's IVIlnnoapollj
���Its Principal Point.
West Port is near the head of the
navigation of the Upper Kootenay und
is presently tho chief point and distributing point in South East Kootenay.
It is situated ou the west side of tlie
Kootonay Kiver, nearly opposite Fort
Steele, und is the port (or that town.
All steamerfl discharge their postioilgors,
freight and merchandise for Fort Steele
nt this town. The custom house ware-
bouses are situated here, and llio volume
of trudo done at this point is iiicreasiug.
The place as selocted foi' the townsite in
admirably selected for a growing commercial town. It is a level wooded
stretch of land extending southwards
along the west hank of the Upper
Kootenay Kiver. This level stretch ol
land extends backward for some considerable distance right up to a bluff which
rises up about a hundred feet. Tlie site
is at the confluence ol the f't. Mary's
liiver with the Kootenay Hiver, which
runs along the north side of the town.
At high water the site suffers from an
overflow of the St. Mary's Ulvor, but
this can bo easily remedied by banking
the river and improving the channel.
When this is done the site will be one of
tho best sites along the Kootenay Hive;*
tor a business und eoiuiuciTial town. If
South East Kootenay goes ahead, which
it   is   bound   to  do,   West   l'ort   will

und River, lh'- Dawson suggested the
construction oi a railway in the far distant future from the navigable waters oi
the Btlckoon to tho navigable waters oj
the Mackenzie, a distance of 7i0milc
When It/. Dawson made his snrvoy, tlie
mineral wealth of tho Yukou wan known
but none wore aware of Itsgreat richness
and Dr. Dawson's suggestod route for
inter-comniiiiiicatioii was more for the
purpose of opening up a portion of " Canada's (inat Reserve" forhorsurplus
population, when that epoch period in
Canada'.-: history was reached,
The Provincial Government has already granted charters for the construe*
tion of railways to the Yukon, and one
of the routes selected is by the Stickeen
River and Luke Teslin, but when the
railway will he constructed, if ever it is
constructed, is another matter. TI
route however is 11 good one, if even it is
somewhat lengthy over land. Tiiere are
comparatively few hardships to encounter, and good toed all the way during the
Hummer season for both man and beast.
All that the C.I'.U. propose doing in tlie
meantime is to run a line of steamers
from Victoria to Stickeen, and tliis service cannot now come into operation
until the oitrly summer of next year.
Whether roads will ho constructed aud
Btages conic into operation, the same as
in the Cariboo, time and trallle alone
can determine.
..< The following article in a recent issue
of tho Vancouver World seems to indi-
caio pretty clearly the policy to be pur
sued by the C.I'.U. with regard to the
proposed all-Canadian route to the Yu
Icon. If this route proves feasible it will
put an end to the agitation that has been
worked up in various quarters us to
other proposed routes overland:
"It muv now be accepted as a settled
fact that the agitation for an all-Canadian route to the Yukon gold-fields will
result in the carrying out of that desire.
The World has the very best of authority
for stating that with iis customary sagacity, foresight, as well ns widely spread
business interests, the Canadian Pacific
Hallway Company has decided upon proceeding at the earliest possible period
with the construction of a standard-
gauge line of railway from a point at or
near Glonora. on the Stickeen river, to
the bead of navigable waters of the
Yukon, The decision to accomplish tliis
important undertaking was arrived at by
the executive of that company this week
Instructions woro at once wired from
Montreal to General Superintendent
Jlarpolo, in this city to select the most
competent men to proceed to the locality
and to make a survey of tho country
and the feasibility of constructing a line
of railway connecting the waters of the
Stickeen with those of Teslin hake and
Yukon, l'.y to-day's express there arrived from Kootonay Mr. 15, J. Duchcs-
nay, who is superintendent of tho
Kootonay division, as well as being an
experienced engineer and railway locator, who is charged witli the work of
making the preliminary surveys for the
proposed line. That gentleman, with
.Mr. Marpolo and Mr. Cumblo, chief
resident engineer for the C.I'.U. Co.,
went over to Victoria by the Charmer
this afternoon, in order Io consult with
Premier Turner and inspect Ihe maps,
etc., relating to the Stickeen River and
the northern section of this Province in
the Lauds and Works department, This
done and other Information collected
Mr. Ilucbesnay and his party will at
once proceed north to the scene of his
operations, where considerable work is
being done by tho Provincial liovern-
ment in connection with the building of
u trail or wagon road from Glonora to
Teslin Lake. Xo time will ho lost hy
Mr. Duchesany in the prosecution of the

Upon the receipt of his report the necessary machinery towards ensuring the
accomplishment of a modem line of
railway from Glenora to Teslin lake will
be proceeded with. So that the work
will bo well underway by this time next
year.
