Editok  Dear Sir:���  Since    , tnkiii.tr     over      Hie  Mafronship of the above 'named  Hospital   I   have   met    with   so  many kind ���responses to  appeals  for assistance to help along my  'work  Mint- I   wish ��� through the  medium of your paper to  extend  my   most, grateful   thanks to all  those who have so ably done so.  1   have  furnished   two  wards  iind renovated the  whole, build-  in*? at a  cost of &500, of which  , pari, was donated and part earnings.    I also have been   assisted  .   by our Secretary, Mr.  Smith, in  securing   a    large  .donation   of  - drugs    from   Henderson   Bros.  ���Wo have also  received   a most  liberal .grant  from   the government, which  will  pnable. me to  put the liospital in good sanitary  ,and comfortable conditions.     It,  may  seem   to  outsiders   a, great  deal to have been given, but any  who have  had  the  expenses of  sickness   in   their   homes   know  something of  what it costs for  the comfort *of those who   are  r   helpless, and when a number are  at'the   mercy  of those who can  help  by   their  loving caro^ and  attention,    even     that . ,is . not  .  enough,   so  many   little   things  * often -of   the'   most   expensive  o nature are required   to help  re-  store "'strength' and life. To those  also   who   have', devoted    their  lives  to  waft on  such  is due^a  , cheering word, and-sympathy .to  help  theni "in "'their good. work.  , When a nurse^"dons'the -cap  and  .   apron  that is not what makes a  nurse, but a heart that can' lend  its love to'its fellow creatines, a  willingness to devote< hours of  weariness, to -alleviate  the dis,-  tress of others as well as i.s .pos-  ' siblo.to  be done  by the gentle  hand of kindness.     So they also  ' should be remembered in  cheering ways and helping hands outk-,  side the hospital walls.  All donations will be received  with thanks, .such as flowers,  reading matter, old linen, etc.  While f thank the public for all  past favors, I still ask to be remembered.  Unfortunately,   when   I    took  charge   of   the    hospital   there  were- two  patients  upon  whom  death   had   already    placed   its  mark, Mrs. Di.nick and Mr. Mac-  Millain,   who  in  their last days  have been given  every comfort  and attention it was  possible   to  bestow,. have  passed   from    us.  .Other . patients      have      been  .successfully  treated,   and   have  returned totheir   former  places  in   life.      Two   weeks  ago   Mr.  Chammings was brought at midnight   with-a   compound   com-  mutated   fracture of  the ankle.  We, are  pleased   to report that,  under tlie  skilfull   treatment,  of  Dr. Watt, the fracture is uniting  satisfactorily, and we hope   that  shortly you   will learn   of   his  complete recovery.

In this district there are many  square miles w.hcro the foot of  man has never trod.  When  the   Kootenay   Central  Railway is constructed:- then the  Fort    Sleele    district   will   go  to   the  front  with  continue  the  mineral   production  of   the  province.  Owing lo the lack of transportation facilities the copper properties on the St., Mary's river  are not being developed as  rapidly as they should be.  'The future-of the mines on  Boulder creek, a tributary of  Wild T-lorso creek, are very  promising.

The "matter,  however, it is said, will not be  allowed to rest.^ His outbreak  grew directly out of the attempt  of the Boer sympathizers to  dynamite the steamship Mechanician, which was about to sail  for South-Africa with a cargo of  mules for the British Government.

Development work on the property consists of one tunnel some  35 -feet in length, running  through schist , and ��� slate, wiin  stringers of quartz'in the same.  A shaft is down eight feet, an  open cut has been run for a distance of some Ui feet. Two leads  traverse the claim, one is about  20 feet west'of the funnel, the  other just above the tunnel. It  is, 'expected that when the  present tunnel i.s driven some  ten' or twenty feet further the  vein will be encountered.

Phillipps, Aug. 21 ���Work on  the construction of the Great  Northern line from Jennings to  the boundary is well under way.  the right of way is cleared and  grading has commenced at  points along the line.-  The line north of the boundary  has been surveyed and construction will commence about September 20th.  The steamers North Star aud  J D Farrel 1 are making regular  trips a.s far north as Crow's Nest,  Landing.  The C. P. K. have laid out a  lownsite at the boundary near  the Kootenay river.  Contractors are looking over  the Crow's Nest line preparatory  to estimating on contracts.  A large number of tent.-s hnvo  been pitched in the neighborhood of Elko to accommodate  the new arrivals1.     ���  SUJ.I.IVAN.  " Reports received from Spokane are to the effect that the  Sullivan mine will soon be in  active operation. It is said that  arrangements have been completed for the erection of a  smelter f.o treat the ores of the  Sullivan and North Stiar mines.  The capital of the Sullivan will  be increased from #2.f)00,000 to  #3.000,000 in order to provide  means for the construction of a  smelter and improvements for  the further and more rapid development of the miue.

Mr. Howell is sfilkhammeriug  away on the Iowa, the tunnel is  in l.'i feet, there i.s a good showing of galena ore.  Will Build a Smelter.  Frank Uogan who was in (own  on Wednesday says: "There is  no doubt but that a smeller will  be erected in the near future on  Mark creek. The smelter will  be constructed either at the  lower falls in the vicinity of  Marysville. or at a point near  the upper falls in tlie neighborhood of the mines. A conference  has been held with Mann *fc Mackenzie, the owners of the North  The   Follow Me, Group   Situated   on  Perry   Creek  Is   Where   the  Discovery Was Made.  Hank Ellcr and ' Dan Munroe  have made a rich strike  of gold  quartz on the Follow Me group,  situate on Perry creek.  '-Early last week Messrs Eller  and Munroe returned to Steele  from Perry Creole ' and reported  that they had a very promising  property- on Perry, creek, they-  emphasized tlie statement by  showing sample'- of quartz , containing free gold. On Wednesday of last week-, after securing  supplies, they returned to Perry  creelc to further prospect',and'  develop their claims.      '   ',  Tuesday     William"'' Kidd   re-'-  turned from Perry .c'reofe  bringing in-a report that Messrs*Eller  and Munroe had .struck' the rich-'14  est vein of gold ore  ever   found,  in  South East  ICootenay.      On  returning to the claim Eller'.and  Munroe commenced sinking near  the center of a, big ledge/ that is  from 40 to :">0 feel in width.      On  Thursday' the-sha.lt had  reached  a depth of ten to twelve fee\ lhe<  last shots  tired  oxposed  quartz  containing   a   larg-e   amount of'  gold   visible   to -lhe eye, as Mr!  Kidd  expressed il.   '-Jt is lousy  with  gold".      Thu  .shaft is 5 by,  0 feet, and   in   the bottom  gold  can     be    soun     sparkling     all .  through   the   quartz.      Further  development  will determine  as  to whether the strike is a pocket  or  the  quartz   will   cany   high  values across the vein.    The big  ledge is  lying'between'walls of'  slate and syenite.  Matters of,Interest.  ��� It seems well settled that  Nelson will be the site for the  lead rolinery to be built iu the  Kootenays' under bonus from the  Dominion Government.   \  The construction of the Crow's  Nest Southern railway, with its  branch lines to points in the  Port Steele district 'will be an  important factor in the mining  situation and conditions iu this  district.  The construction of a smelter  and lead rolinery i.s under consideration.  The Wild Horse and St.  Mary's districts will bo benefitted  by these contemplated improvements, for there will be'a strong  demand for dry ores to mix with  the wet ores from flic Sullivan  and North Star mines.  Business at Fort Steele.  Trade at Wort Nicole is good,  and our merchants are preparing for a busy fall. Carlin &  Duriok. during the past week  have shipped a large amount of  supplies to Perry creek, Kimberley, Tracy and Wild Horse creek  Marysville and Klko. The Elko  shipment included two wagons.  c-  >i -���'si  THE PROSPECTOR, FORT STEELE, B. C, AUGUST 24, 1001.  lLSTAHI-ISHKn     IftftS  A.  13. Grace,  PUBLISHER    AND    EDITOR.
