In the vicinity of Fort Steele  tho usual number of prospectors  are in the hills, .but, the main  work is being done in operating'  "the, placer inities, and developing'.quartz .'mine's on Wild Horses  creek.

' There were three huugry men  led by Mr. Byron, formerly of  Perry creek, who reached camp  last Friday. They had been, up  Iron creek.prospecting, and ran  short of grub, knowing our  camp was down the Bull river,  they started, not knowing 'the  distance, and tramped two and ai  half days. They thought thatj  spuds placed before them, looked  like oranges. If they did not,  they cost fully as much now-a-  days.  will   cross   on  the  southeastern  portion of the claim.  The Chickamun Stone Mining  Co. is incorporated under the  laws of British Columbia, and is  controlled by* Spokane capitalists. The head office is at Spokane. There are four parallel  leads which traverse the claims,  which ' have - ar^ total a width' of  twelve feet, fn the main'tunnel  which -Js now uf about 125 feet  there is two feet of solid ore  carrying gray copper, ' the  balance of the lead is a concentrating proposition. The ore  has a. valuation of from 835 to  $110 to the ton. There is about  300 tons oT ore on the dump, besides some 50 Ions of sorted ore  ready for'shipment.  The future workings of -the  mine will be conducted on an  extensive scale, and shipments  of ore will commence as.soon as  the necessary .transportation is  afforded. ' There seems to be no  doubts in the minds of the owners that the Chickamun Stone  will be a mi ike of more than  ordinary merit.  Lillooet Bye-Election-  Victoria.

Wodntisday \vas payday at the  St. 'Eugo'ne mine and 825.020  was the exact amount of money  distributed ..anxxngst the employees. While business was  good, the to*wri was quiet, and'  orderly. A good portion of tlie  money was sent out of town, to  Rossland. Nelson . and other  places where many of the miners  owed accounts and have,families  living. , Very-' little money was  spent for whiskey, and it is  doubtful if a man lost his  position through" being unable to  work 'the following day.  The   concentrator   has     been  , t-  running J or several days past on  about a' two-third feed, owing to  the��scairity of water for washing  the' or*}. However, a pump is  being installed and water will be  pumped from tire lake to the top  of the mill and used for this purpose-1. This pump will be ready  to run in two or three days, and  then it rs thought there .will be  no further difficulty. A shutdown for lack of water is not at  all likely.  Manager -Oronin has apiece of  the first load pipe turned out at  Trail smelting and refining  works. It is an inch pipe'and'is  without a Haw. Mr. Cronin  says there i.s no liner lead pipe  made in the world than is now  manufactured at Trail, and that  there i.s a good demand-in the  United States a.s well-as in Canada for it- He gives the C.P.R.  people great credit, for their en-c  terprise in establishing so important an industry, and in his  opinion W. H. Aid ridge, the  company's sinellor and refinery  manager, has done more for the  silver-lead industry than any  oilier man in Canada. To Mr.  Aldridge ho contends is almost  solely due the success of the  Trail refining plant.���Moyie  Leader.
