On  Pyramid and Alki creeks, there  are properties owned by the  Pyramid Mother Lode Company,  on which largo sums have been  expended in' developing, and it  is said that these mines are in n  condition lo ship as soon as  transportation is afforded.  The building of a smelter at  any point on the line of the proposed railway, will put the Kini-  berley mines, with their silver-  lead production,^ in direct, touch  with the .smelt,er. ' Tin; dry ores]  of the St. Mary's, and Kiinberloy  wet ores, will be sufficient to  supply a large smelling plant  with ample ore for the succoss-  ful operation of both smelter and  railway.

Dur'mg'thc past two or throe  years, a, large number of claims  on Crawford creek and a number  on Canyon creek, have been developed to such an extent that  shipments of ore will take place'  this summer. So rapid has been  the development at this point,  and so great the variety of mineral wealth found on Crawford  creek, Canyon creek and on the  headwaters of the St. Mary's  river, that a smelter has become  a necessity. The. application for  a charter to build a railway from  Crawford Bay through the valley  of the St. Mary's to Fort Steele,  the granting of which is the only  solution to the deVelopment of  the mineral resources in this  neighborhood.  On the St. Mary's River and  its tributaries arc a large number oi properfie-s  under  various  remarkable feature  with respect lo the situation of  the proposed sincltei", and the  mines of the district, is the fact  that it is a- down grade from  every point above mentioned to  the site selected.  Who Is Mr   Hj-ams.  The man that is backing up  the smelter proposition in South  East Kootenay. is Mr. G. N  Hymns of Boston. Mr. Hyams,  was formerly General Manager  for the Lewishons, Copper  Brokers of New York. lie was  also consulting engineer for the  Butte & Montana Co.. at Butte,  also consulting engineoer for the  Amalgamated Copper Co. Mr.  Hyams is reported its worth at  least i?i:>,000,0u0. He is opposed  to the American Smelting combine, and will tight; the corporation to a finish, if lie is interfered with in his proposition^  He will prove a, valuable acquisition to the mineral'industry of  tho Proviii< o.  Vast   Mineral- Belt,   On   Which  There,are  Located Hundreds  ' of Promising- Locations.  Within ten miles of Port Steele  which is ihe supply centre of a  largo mining country, .north,  south, east and west therefrom,  arc numerous good properties  that will become producers and  shippers as soon as the necessary railway facilities for transportation are afforded.  It has been demonstrated by  actual development, lhat a mineral zone of varying width extends from the international  boundary, norlh. for a distance  of over one hundred miles. A  large number of locations have  been miiilc on this mineral belt.  '  Within this mineral zone,  which is of lime, slate, spar and  quart/he formation, are a nmrf  ber of strong ledges, with' surface croppings that have a varying 'width of from .10 to 200 feet,  there arc, likewise, various cross  ledges and veins that are deflec-  lions from the main ledges. The  ore carries copper, gold, silver  and lead.  ,   ~-  Aboul IhreCamiles above the  forks?of Wild Horse creek, ,,this  mineralized zone, is- about two  miles in width, and is covered  by a large number of locations.  This and the immediate locality  are covered by the Coronado.  Dodo, Colossal.

Construction  Three  Big  Ledg-en  Encountered and  a Fourth Close at Hand.  ,Wliat is  known  as   the  Ruby -  lead was struck last week on the  '��� i  group of claims owned by the  Kootenay Perry Creek Gold  Mines, of London England.  The claims are the Pearl.'Elk'-.  horn, Running Wolf, Ruby Fraction, Reindeer and Last Chance. ���  Development work consists ,of ���  a main'tunnel which  is  now  in  0:10 feet. This tunnel was driven  on   the Elkhorn,   and   the   ore.  body has been tested thoroughly .  One    hundred    feet    from   the  mouth of the tunnel there is one -  cross,cut of 40 feet,   at, ^00  feet'  another cross  drift of 20 feet,  and   at   300   feet,   still another  cross drift of .'10 feet.        ^     '    ''  The work which was particularly-engrossing the attention of  the management was to develop ���  the Ruby veiu,1 and for this purpose a /cross  drift to   the west-  was drove,   after having drifted �����  240 feet the lead was  encountered, lo make sure that it'was' the  vein a drift of IT. feel was  drove1 ���  in  solid  quart/..     The  ore   is a"  fr'ee milling gold quartz.,        i/ (   -  A  cross  drift  to  the east   is  now being run to catch the Pearl  vein, .this drift is now, in :!(! feet,  aud  the formation ^gTves   indications that the vein is  close  at ���  hand.  There are three strong  leads   ���  running'through   t'lus  group of-  claims.    It has been demonstrated that the vein on the Running  Wolf   has  a  uniform   width   of   -  twelve  feet,   there  is  no doubt  but the  vein on the Elkhorii- is  the  same  one upon which work  is' being done  on   the Running  Wolf.  The Ruby lead has been opened up on the surface for more  than a thousand feet, and has a  varying width of from thirty, to  sixty feet. It is an enormous  ledge and values are high near  the surface. This is the particular ledge which was struck last  week.  What is known as the Pearl  vein lies to the east of the Ruby.  These cross cut tunnels were '  run with all due consideration of  the existing conditions. The  dip of the veins absolutely determined, and the distance the  cross drifts were to be run was  ascertained, and the result has  demonstrated the correctness of  these calculations.  It is estimated that there is  between ."ion and RiOO tons of  milling quartz on the dump.  There is no doubt but that'  these claims are destined to become one of the larger, ir not the  largest gold producing mines in  British Columbia.  t  '   L  ', '/  Among- the Craft.

'.���''.'  The past year has been chiefly  one of development; this year  will be one of production  throughout the Kootenay valley..  The construction of the KqotOf  nay Central will,be an important  factor to the large shipments of  ore. Mining in the past has been  hampered by lack of transportation facilities, there is plenty of.  room for the various means that  may be afforded for the shipment  of ore during the present year.  .. *    *    * I;  The Kootenay River,'-extend-  The'need of a local smeller  this district is a pressing one.  The Fort Steele mining divis  ion has developed into a mining  section of undisputed promise.  We expect an influx of capital  during the summer months.  ,;The early construction of the  Crow's Nest Southern, and' the  Kootenay Central railways is exciting a wide spread interest.-  /Phe Pkospkctou is published in the interest of the mining  industry-of South East Kootenay.  The Fort Steele mining district promises to be one of the  liveliest mineral sections, of the  Province this year.  The Northport Smelter in t'he  near future, will use Crow's /S'osf  coal and coke.  It is reported that there is a  movement on foot to establish a  smelter in South East Kootenay.  B. C.  ���._Finest*>Liquors and - Cigars.  a.

A boy smoking a, cigarette, who pushed himself to the  fronton Lord Roberts arrival at,  Swindon, lie admonished with  the remark "Jt is vovy rude for  a, boy of your age to smoke1'.  Tlio  boy   is   not likely to forget  , the rebuke; and it is to be hoped  that he and other -juvenile  smokers will profit by it.  This incident recalls another  that, happened a few years' ago  when the Field Marshal was  staying at, Dunbar.     As  he  was  ' taking his afternoon walk to the  links, he was, met by a si,nart  soldierly man, who had evidently  been waiting to see him, and  saluted. The General slopped  enriuived' the man's name and  regiment, and exclaimed: "AY,  I mind you. .There were two of  you of the same 'name in your  company." ' '   ,  Then fixing his keen kind eyes  on the man, ,he said^fin=a���low-  lone: "But why have you been  drinking'/" , "Only a glass and 11,  half and a mug of ale. my  Lord".  ��� "Only a glass and,a half and'a,  mug of ale loo much my man'".  Don't, you   do   it.'"      Putting 'his  ' hand into his pocket Lord Roberts took out a silver piece 'and  . j t  placed   it,  in     the    man's   hand,  "Doii'l you do it".'  > "No. 1 wont, my lord",''replied  the man. '. "You- pass your,  word'?" "1 do my lord". ,'-That's  well and I trust, you. Don't do  it.' You have passed your word  keep if.
