Every elond has a silver lining
and in that resembles the mountains of South Fast Kootenay.
KThoreisan" undoubted future
for the mining industry of the
Fort Steele district.'
The dovelopmenl'of the mining
industry of Soutii Fast Kootenay
is largely ac record of the pro-
gross of the St. Eugene. North
Star, Sullivan and Estella mines
The satisfactory progress of
mining' in this-district is indi-
'cated by the industrial activity
'now apparent.. '"        -    • -'-
Perhaps enough has been said
to impress capital with the fact
t he Fort Steele disi riot possesses
many attractions in mining,   p.
Wild Horse Creek placers
have been profitably worked for
thirty-live years. Tho existence
of an old channel is placed Lbe-
yond a doubt by recent discoveries.
The metal market   during  the
past week   has  been   somewhat
, dull and without incident._,.     .. ,
, The  great   mineral'   lodes, "'of
South Fjast KootenayYhave barely been'prospected, .in  compavi-'
"   son with theii' great possibilities
when thoroughly developed. <?
' Reports from the Fslella mine
,    at  Tracy  creek   continue   to.be
'more favorable.'      It   is said that
■  'the owners will make most of its
improvements Hi is' "year  at  the
mine, and the'erect ion of a  concentrator is assured.
'    Gold was discovered   on, Wild
Horse creek in IS('>;J.    fn the,first
five years its product ion1 amounted to £17.000,000. "  ,
The mining outlook forPtbe
Fort Steele district, and indeed,
of' the whole ,of South Kast
Koolenay, -was; never/*-brighter
than it is today.
The richness of fhe silver-lead
ores"of South Fast Kootenay enables extraordinary difficulties
in transportation to be overcome
and. yet realize a, profit to the
shipping mines.
It" is gratifying to note that
the value of the mineral prodiic-
, tion of the district still increases
The work now being done in
the Rover tunnel of the Estella
mine shows the ore to be increasing in value as well'as width of
the ore boclv.

' The- Bull Tjver iron deposits
are beginning to attract considerable attention from all parts of
the world.    '■■       '
There is now every prospect
that the town of Fort Steele,
which is the oldest mining camp
...in the" Kootenays, will shortly
experience a revival of the interest formerly extended  to it.
In  five  year's   time   the prospector, will   not be  able'to find
anybody  who   will    pay   money
down unless the mine   is   a,  pro

machinery will be used in operating the deep .placer mines on
Perry creek.

and   Aberdeen   have   been pros-
pec-ted by means/jf open cuts.
On the Knob Hill three tunnels
have been run. _No. .1 tunnel is
in 75 f«Pt,"~No.~2. fannul-30" feet
and No. :-}. runnel I.'JO feet. The
lead on the surface has a width
of 1- feet. The ore is a galena
carrying copper and gold: if is a
concentrating ore The owners
expect to reach the ledge in the
lower tunnel in about 80 feel.
On the Vulcan the ledge has
been opened by several cuts and
a tunnel 2(> feet in length.
, A force of four men are engaged in --• development work,
which will be continued during
the summer months.
A Dual Celebration. - One a Wedding-
the Other a Dance.
The dance at the., Imperial
hotel on Tuesday evening was
the most successful event ever
given in Foi-t'Steele.
The spacious rooms of the Imperial "were thronged with ladies,
and gentlemen, than which, we
venture to say none merrier assembled the woild over with a
similar object in view. The occasion being a testimonial in
honor of an event which look
place on the same evening in the
'■Old Country'' ..in which Miss
Ella Fenwick was • united in
marriage to Mv. Frederick
Paravicini,    at     Abbotts*   Ann,
i    r
Andover, Hants,'England.
Miss Fenwick is a sister of
Mr. Arthur 13. and Mr. Thomas
H. L/ Fenwick of Fort Steele. (
About nine o'clock the large
assemblage entered the dancing
hall at the Imperial. It was a
gay and festive party, and every
one entered, into the'spirit' of
making the affair a, grand
success. Promptly-al 9:1;") ihe
grand cmarch began, during
which some forty couples
marched to tho music of the
orchestra. Several difficult and
pleasing evolutions were performed, then came a waltz and
the dance was on: ■
There were over fifty couple
in attendance, besides some
twenty forlorn old bachelors
without partners, but they
proved no wallflowers and just
got right in and kept the ladies
tripping the light fantastic without intermission until supper;
which was welcomed by all and
which was furnished by the
Messrs Fen wicks from the ranch

-Great Northern Construction.
A  report,   received-from-  the
south,   and    circulated   in   town
during the past week,  is   to   the
effect .that the Cl rea,t - Northern
railway, as soon   as   the  Crow's
Nest Southern   railway   is  completed, will-commence active operations  towards, the   construction of a railway from the   vicinity of Bains Lake; north   to Fort
Steele, thence up  the Sl,\ Mary's
river   to   tap   the great  copper
belt   in   the    Purceir  range   of
mountains.      The-'reason', given
for   this -movement  on  the part
of   the  Great   Northern   is   the
necessity of providing dry   ores,
to be used in. connection with the
smelting of the/silver-lead   ores
of  the   district,  at a smelter   to
be  constructed   at  or  near   the
falls on Elk river.
The Gem of the Mountains.
. There  is  every   reason to believe that Kimberley is destined
to become one of the prosperous
towns of South East Kootenay.
That Kimberley will now forge
ahead, no one seems to doubt,
the future of Kimberley is closely allied to' tlie. active mining
operation's of .the North Star and
Sullivan mines. Other mining
properties in'that vicinity show,
a greater or less amount of development, a.nd will no doubt, in
time add lo ihe material prosperity of Kimberley. „
The town has railway connections with the outside world: a
branch line will be constructed
to the Sullivan mine. With the
North Star and Sullivan ship-'
