The North Star was, the lirst  mine in tho district to ship ore.  aiid the St. Pugene has been developed into the largest, silver*  load producing' mine ��� on the.  American continent.  The Sulliva.li Group  of  mines  Tat group is an extension ui the  Dardnliells on the soutlieasi nnd  is also a very promising - pro-'  perly.    ,  The Golden Five group is located in the forks of Wild Morse  and has been developed lo a considerable extent, by means of  l Illinois. The orois'a silver lend  carrying gold values.  The Maid Mountain. and  Dougherty claims are located on  lhe we'.**l ,-jide of Wild Horse, and  have received a considerable  amount' of developmeni. Moth  properties; are considered free-  gold propositions.  Far up, on the oast fork of  "Wild - Horse are situated the  Gracio and Charlie claims.  Theso'claims have been developed by a largo open cut. and a  tunnel Ha feet in length. The  ore runs about ss per ton and , i.s  considered a perfect, llux for all  lead products. !

"  It is a, remarkable commentary  on   the  condition of lead mining  duced by want of rain places us  in a, A-ery serious condition about  tilling our contracts in'due time.  The total of the contracts culls  for ;':}.0ih' tons, and avo have until July I. IW7>, lo complete the  total. The October production  of ST2 tons brings the lotal to  date, up to JJ.ON tons.

Tlie Kooienay King mine situated on Victoria Gulch, has-been  worked for a number of years.  The property has a. large showing of silver-load ore upon-thc  surface. A tunnel is being run  to tup fhe,ore body at a depth of  about OOP foot. Results from  present' development work- -in  tunnel and drifts are' said to be  most satisfactory to the owners.  Ear up the Norlh Fork .of  .Wild 1-Iorsc creek is located the  Tiger Poorman group of mines',  ji'iiumber of tunnels have been  run and the ore body has been  shown up to a depth of 700 feet.  The ore runs high in copper,  gold and silver-lead. A considerable amount of ore is now on  the dump awaiting, shipment.  On Moulder creelc, a tributary  of Wild Horse creelc. is situated  a number of crown-granted  claims, known as the Mig Chief  group. "Phis property has been  partially developed, showing up  a, I roe-gold quarl/.-load which  lias a width of :2s feet. On the  opposite side of Moulder creek  Irom lhe,Mig Chief, i.s situated  the.

The   Tit  for  l.niTOK Pitoyi'i-x-TOK,       '   ,/----���  Dear Sir:��� ���  . ; Residents, 011 th'e east side  of the Kootenay are naturally  anxious to learn definitely* what  i t   *-> ,    f  rowu: . is to be, taken -"by ' fhe  KoototiiiyCcnlral. and have been  somewhat disturbed by certain  rumors, whoso source cannot be  readily traced, that our- long-  looked-for road is to bo built on  the west side of the river.  If. may tend to quiet, the'  fears of our friends if  you will permit me to publish  the description of the route a.s  given in tho company's charter:-  Sec. 7, fa)���"Prom Port Steele  to Elko, or some other convenient point 011 tho Crow's Nest  J-iailway between Elko and Wardner: tlience on either fhe cast or  Avesf side of Wigwam river, or  by the most convenient route to  the International lioundary  line".  This means lhat the road must  run from Fort Steele (not West-  port) lo Elko: but if Elko is not  lhe chosen crossing, then il  must bo some other point on the  C.N.I*., bclmrn Plko and Wardner, but iii-il/ier Elko )n>t: Wardner.  The Northerly division of the  road, (a.s described) 111 sub-section (b) must also run "Jroin  Fort'. Steele," by way of Windermere lo Golden. If cbuld not  otherwise be made a continuous  road. Mesides West port is not  Fori, Steele.  Muf the clause of Ihe ������Subsidy  Act is even more definite:  (iii. "To Ihe Kooienay Central  Railway Company for a Iin o of  rail way .from Golden to fhe International Boundary r/V-'Winder-  mere and Port Steele, and cross-  ing the Crow's Nest Railway a.f  or near Elko."    -.���''���'  If the C.P.R. chooses to give  us a westerly connection in. <t<l<li.-  liuv, lo that, "at or near Elko,"  no one here will think of objecting���in fact, we shall be. glad to  have ,it���but such  a ' road   would  be a brii.iic/i of the B.C. Southern  (the.Crow's Nest) and could not  bo built under tlie ICootenay Central charter, nor could it claim a  dollar of the subsidy voted fo  the Kootenay Central Company.

So far there are no  signs of weakening of the ore as  the drift progresses easterly.  ������In running the east drift on  the I'.'lOO. or shaft level, rtho  development 'Avorlc there has  boon very satisfactory. Since  the first of May this drift has  boon extended :-!S0 foot, and in  all this distance only about 20  feet of the drift showed tho vein  ihat was of an unprofitable  quality.

Compared with the last three  .years, fhe present situation of  the mineral industry in Southeast Kootenay is admittedly a  vastly improved one, and full of  hopeful possibilities.  The zinc industry of British  Columbia has been wonderfully  stimulated by the large and constantly increasing demand. Zinc  has beconia a noted feature of  the mineral production of the  Kootenays. Q  A foreign corporation can not  acquire mining properly in British Columbia without registering iu British Columbia provincial law.  The most important consideration in mining operations is ihe  net profit that can be made, and  tho next most important matter  is the cost of conducting practical operations whelher the enterprise be profitable or otherwise.

The London Times reports  lhal, there is '*a serious overpro  duction of Seok'h whiskey, with  a, consequent depression in  prices".- This does no},, however  prevent I lie general sale of  counterfoil Scotch whiskey at  the usual .prices over here.  A si'k'iilist of Sicily announces  Ihat liroiithiiig* coal dust will  cure consumption i lis discovery  i.s now within' l,he reach ^of  palients of -noderaie means; aiTd  should atlrac.1 consumptive  visilors 1o the C'-row's Nost coal  areas.  Mow fliii.1i I'oslon has sol lhe  seal of critical approval on  ���'Parsifal", the'kite Dr.' Wagner  has indeed good reason lo feel  spiritual]v oucourasj'od.    ,,  Voung ,c;oiiple*- , who are  married in auloi.iobiles are. always exposed to the danger of  un early falling'oui,. c  ' A wild rumor has gained credence to tho effect'Ihat Qbm Paul  Krugor buried a lot of gold,  somewhere m Africa .before his  banishment,. ' We wonder if tiny  woman regrets thai he is dead.  Three duals have already been  fought over tlie assault on Minister of ' AVar , .And re al Paris.  Unless arbitration quickens its  pace, some one may get hurt before this filing is over.  - The Dominion parliament  has  been summoned to meet   on Jan-  i r ���  nary 11 th next.,  In the-bright, Russian lexicon  there is no such word as mediation. We don't know what the  ���Russian word for if is, and even  if we could loll you you probably  wouldn't be able lo pronounce if.  St. Petersburg is joyous over  the Idea of double-tracking'fhe  Siberian railroarl', .apparently  without considering that it will  make so much the easier the advance of. Ihe .lapane'se , on  Moscow.    . -   .  - The progress o�� events at  Belleville must leave Sir Wilfrid  Laurier in some doubt as to  whether the (-'rand Trunk Pacific  Railway or the bogus ballot box-  carried the country.  Winter shows an extraordinary  forbearance in. allowing Indian  Summer to linger so long on its  front door step.  ,  The llood of American settlers  pouring  into   Canada  continues  *'*- 'f JA=r '' v"'/-*i i^.  r     ,,K('i.rS.-.
