A number of men are at  in   the   St.   Eugene,   and  Lnrgo Bodies of Rich Ore   Awaiting  ' Development.  Since   the  golden   days of '154  there   has   been   more   or   less  altojition  'paid    lo   South    East  Kootenay,   more  for   its'placer  mines than quart/, mines. In fact  it is only a short time  comparatively,   since   any   considerable  attention has been paid to quartz  mining.  , But now the   time  has  arrived   when,   to    the   quartz  miner, must South   East.  Kootenay look for iis wealth.'   During  the past two years, three, groups  oi  mines  have  been  developed  and placed on a shipping basis,  the ' output   from   these ' mines  have   proved     that   they .rank  among   the ' big   mines'of   the  world.     There  are  also a large  number  of  claims   upon   which"  more or less development work  has been performed, "some being  systematically      developed      in  order to bring them up to a point  of being mined for .profit,   these  are exceptions, ' while  hundreds  of claims with excellent surface  showings are lying idle for want  of, funds  to   continue^  development.     A   Prospector   representative visited  Boulder creek'  on Sunday last, on a tour of' inspection of��the  several ..mining  properties in  that vicinity, and:  was astonished to-see 'the large  amount of work done there during the past two years.  BIG  CHIEF  GROUP. �� '   '"  The location of. the Big' Chief  group of  mines  i.s  on the west  side of Boulder creek about four  miles from  Wild' Horse   creek',  and not over 'nine miles   from,  Fort Steele.    The property consists of three claims,' Big- Chief,  Ames and Golden Coin'.   ' There  is two distinct'ledges or veins on  the Big'Cbief, a small one three  feet   in- width,   which   can ��� be  plainly seen for over six hundred  feet, this vein has a ledge matter  which   carries   iron,   lead   and  copper, it is said that the values  in this vein  will^ average-.about  ��70 to the ton.    The  large vein  upon which the  work  has been  done is 2S feet wide, tho ore is a  sort of porphyritic quartz carrying   free   gold.       Development  work consists of several tunnels  and   drifts. , the   lower   tunnel,  which   has   been  drove  close, to  100 feet, is not in   ledge  matter,  if   this   funnel-   was   continued  until tho ledge was encountered,  it would surely demonstrate' the  value   of   the   property.      The  cross drift in tho No. I tunnel is  some 40 feet in length and  cross  cuts both ledges, the ore  in  thc  large   vein. i?s   a    free    milling  quartz.     After a careful inspec-"  tion of Ihe mine,  fhe conclusion  is formed, that  with  systematic  development, the Big Chief is all  right,   and   would   make   a   big  mine.  MIDAS.  The first, properly which is  met iu climbing the trail to Ihe  Dupont group is the Midas,  which is an extension of the Ida  on thc south casf. and has a  strong lead about 8 feet in width  that carries fair values in.gold.  This property is owned by the  Nortii Star Mining Company,  H. Brown and P. C. Andrews.  Some five hundred dollars has  been expended   in  development,  from the Big Chief group.   Here  we found, what is said to be  {he  largest showing of gold   bearing  rock  in   the   district.      A   porphyritic dyke, some 200  feet  in  width,   and  extending  the   full  length of the Dupont, claim, the  ledge or dyke carries small gold  values.    There is a tunnel  some  200 ' feet    in    length     running  through   the dyke,  following a  three foot pay chute, and which  has a depth of some (50 or 70 feet  this pay chute pays well, yet we  are inclined to think that a cross  drift    at    this   poiiit, ' '.'end   of  tunnel," would have determined  not only   the  width, of the pay  chute,   but   would  have shown  what .values were contained in  that portion of the big dyke.' At  the,contact of  the dykes,   what  is.-said  to  be  the foot, wall, is  about a foot of rich ore.    ���  On the Quintan an open  cut,  six by eight feet shows  a  large  quantity of concentrating galena  ore.    A shaft down ' some eight  oi ten feet, is in ore." From the  surface showings, which, can  be  seen  for ��� a' distance of three or  four hundred feet, the  ledge  or  vein is.from six to thirty feet in  width, having an average  width  of about  10 feet.     If a tunnel  was started at a short' distance  below the cut, at forty  or  fifty  feet it would tap the ore body at  a point  immediately under the  cut and shaft at a depth of about  50 feet this would determine to a  great extent the size.of the vein,  also i   the     values     contained.  Development work  consists   of  one tunnel   in wi)   feet., No.   2  tunnel in 200 feet, No.. 3- tunnel  in 30 feet and open ciit and shaft  There are  several'other   small  veins'which 'traverse this  group  which  are  said  to contain fair  values in gold. , It is the opinion  of .mining men, that with- development, the Dupont (group  will  make a big mining property.

On   Sunday   night  about   11  o'clock, two masked men entered  the   saloon    of   Mr.   Benny   at  Sirdar, aud ordered those  present  to  throw   up   their   hands,  backing up their statement  by a  show of guns.

It   is  said that  the  parties  who'committed the  hold-up went  east towards  the  Crow's Nest Pass.    The robbers  overlooked a roll of bills amount  ing to $70Q which was concealed  behihdthe bar.

Wo are heller  without, llio things lost,, and  those received instead are of  priceless value. We lose a, heart,  of stone and get a heart, of llesh.  Selfishness departs and charily  takes its place. Jt is of great  advantage to exchange the wood  hay. and slubble of wae1o for the  gold of love, the silver of kind  words, and the precious stones  of character, especially as the  (rial will he by (ire. The loss of  dross is gain, aud to receive tlie  gift  of  Cod   is   man's  greatest,  riches. _    What Christ's Friends Gain.  For'following Christ one must  have   bettor��� motives   than   thc  hope  of social  or   material  ad-  ,���vantagc.       Thai   disciple   who  made such things his aim was of  all men the worst disappointed.  Yet  it,  pays to be a Christian,  '   pays richly and   in   many  direc-  , lions.'    The  Master, i.s   loyal to  Uis1 friends.  'He sees to'it  that  they lose nothing on His account,  The choicest of Jiuimin friendships, the goodness that lies at  the heart, of earth's good things,  the essential  beauty, sweetness,  and  gladness  of life,���these arc  the birthright, of every one   who  knows  tho   Father  through the  Son. .  r  Tho Kind of Losing That Gains.  Jesus  was  talking   lo  a  rich  man on the subject of obtaining  eternal   blessedness.      Mo   told  hi lib that  lo  attain   it   he   must  ' ti  , detach his supreme dependence  from1 the' wealth of this world,  lie must give it away in order to  get something better. This  offended tho^inquirer, who had  "great possessions": and led our  Lord fo remark that such as lose  ���-all for His sake certainly gain a  "hunch-eel-fold now in this time,  , and in the world to come'eternal  life.'" ���>  The Master would not have  anyone think that losing is-al-  wavs a sure condition of gaining  more Multitudes have given  away goods iind gold "without  getting'anything better, or back  again. �� But no 'one ever did  lovingly" give away- of this  world's weal tli, v or work for  others in order to honor Christ,  without receiving a return "in  this time." The wealth, and  weight of influence which once  were predominatly in possession  ��� of tho pagan and unchristian  people of' the earth, and now in  the coffers and care of people  bearing the Christian name. It  pays in coin to be a consistent,  consecrated, outgiving child of  Cod; and it, pays still more in  character    and    peace   of   con  science.   1 The only, drawback to the de-,  velopmonl of the mineral industry of this district is lack of  transportation facilities.

R.  and  the  Crow's   Nest   Coal  Company does not appoar likely  to bo  settled  amicably  for, according to tho latest, advices, the  matter  will   have   to bo fought  out in the courts.    Lt is   not unlikely   that   the .issue   will   be  much     wider    than    the   mere  question of railway building.    It  is said that both companies' have  failed to carry out the provisions  of, their  agreements  in   relation  to the coal areas and the' B. C.  Southern bonus and.land grants.  The C. P. R. also claiin   that.it  is a matter for the government  to take up,,, charging that  the  Coal  Company,'.have failed   in  many   important   respects   and  broken their agreements; ' 1st in  failing  to  supply the    requirements of the  Province;   2nd  in  charging the B. Q-consumers a  higher price than stipulated, in  the charter;93rd that not having  made their selection of coal areas  within a stipulated time they are  not now entitled to them.
