Th.-* following is the list of ore  shipments and lead returns of  Trail smelter, from Southeast  Kootenay mines during November l'.ilH.

'  North Star oil:!,tC):''lbs. of ore,  which netted ll*-!, \72 lbs. of lead  From the returns now in from  the Hall and Traif'smelters. it  is shown that the big producing-  mines of Southeast Kootenay,  the St., Eng-ene and North Star,  produced (>0% of ,the total production of lead, in the Kootenays  for the month of November.  There is no doubt but"t hat the  Port Steele Mining; Division  will, this year, again lead all  other mining districts in the production of lead' ,in British  Columbia.  The glitter of fhe stupendous  success of the St. Eugene and  North Star mines during the  pasi year should not, be allowed  to obscure the fact that there arc  a number of properties in Southeast, Kootenay, now under development, that will in the near  ,future, help to .increase the  mineral production of this'district.

That trade will be stimulated  beyond calculation is a certainty  bin, with all the benefits direct  and indirect that will accrue  from the construction of this  railway, the prospect of giving;  to the Canadian Pacific an almost  direct route, and a comparatively easy grade through the Rocky  Mountains is a most, economical  point, and a large portion or  passenger and heavy freight  traffic will pass over the'Koolenay Central on its way to the  Pacilic Coast.

He will report for duty during  the coming week.  in four months the St. Eugene  mine has produced and marketed  a quarter of a million dollars  worth of lead ore.  The Fort Steele meat market  will receive a large consignment  of geese, turkeys and chickens  next week in time for Christmas.  T. Clary, Sheep creek, D. Barlow and C.

At fhe regular meeting of fhe  Board of License Commissioners for Cranbrook district, held  in Cranbrook Thursday,;licenses  were renewed for the Imperial,  Windsor and Sti.'atheona hotels.  The minister of trade a,nd commerce, has ruled that, claims I'or  additional bounty upon lead  found in ore as the result of re-  assay of -samples cannot he  ���recognized.  Southeast K'ooleiiay has at  least live principal coal fields,  those at, Coal creek. Michel.  Morrissey, Fording river and  the Flathead district.  A gas coal of good grade such  as thtii' lonnd, al Fording river  will readily give 10.000 cubic  feel of gas to ihe ton.  In the Crow's Nest areas, the  coal scams vary from -I io GO feet  in thickness.  .i   *  Mining in Southeast Kootenay  possesses certain features that  place it in a class almost by  itself. Success' comes slowly  and is attained by implicit, adherence to business^ principles  and the exorcist*, of economy and  sound judgement.  The increase in production of  minerals and the prosperity of  the mineral resources of' Southeast, Koolenay will not be attained until the completion of the'  Kootenay Central railway.  1 In addition io the mines oi  Southeast Koolenay that already  belong ,t,o tho dividend paying  class, there tire a considerable  number located in 'the main  range of the'K'ockics, that, will  be developed and profit by iho  construction of the- Koo1,ouay  Central railway.  Tho promise of great activity  in the mining sections tributary  ���to the town of Port Steele Avill  be fulfilled -next spring. Mon  arc- de^elop'uiic their properties,  and extensive preparations are  being made for work next year,  but what guarantees activity in  mining next year is 'ho construction of the Kootenay (Central  railway , , ,  The Tiger-Poorman group of  three claims have developed  three feet of line, ore, and the  properly in consequence will ,bo  worked continuously next year.  The'earth has' begun to give  up its treasures in Southeast  Koolenay. No one knows what  the ultimate harvest will be. but  the mining district in the  vicinity of Fort Steele will go  forward with leaps and bounds  upon the completion of the  Kootenay Central railway.  The gold quartz mines of  Southeast Kootenay are situated  in the mountains tributary to  Wild Horse creek and those  tributary to Perry creek.  In the mountains of Southeast  Kootenay are many varieties ' of  ore bearing gold, silver, lead,  copper and iron, and among  them are some which are typically free milling gold ores.  J. (.!.
