This districl i.s rapidly forging
aheiul ami srivcs promise of befouling ono of the largest producers of mineral in the province
Tho indications are that a large
amount of capital will be invest-
ctl in the l^ort. Steele, districl
diirino; ihe coming' year, with
transportation tacilities Jor the
easl side of the valley, a large
amount of ore will be shipped.
Numerous companies during the
p,t<M year have thoroughly ex
plotted their mines, and have
considerable shipping ore on the
dump, all of which ,bespeaks si
prosperous season for Ihe com
ing year. Increased trsuispurtsi-
iion is needed iu many portions
of the district,
W-iudertnere district lists promising mines aud shipping ore
which has to be ha lulled many
■Mimes before il reaches its desLi
nation. Sand creek and Bull
river mines have considerable
.shipping ore on the dump. Machinery is needed for Wild Horse
sind the JEst'ella mine on Tracy
creek can become a shipper inside of thirty clays. It is plain
to be seen'that increased trans-
portal ion'is needed all over the
district.  , ■
When you hear a man preaching about his honesty, keep your
h.iud on your pocket-book.
Success should not be measured in dollars and cents, but by
intelligent ami persistent endeavour—the giving to' the world
some thought or thing that will
make life better and happier.   r

' The thoughts and enei'.^ies ol'
the mining men of this district
are now being directed to the
great quartz possibilities that
permeale the mountains in Ihe
vicinity of Fort Steele.
Tho development of the copper
properties on the north fork of
IheSt. Mary's river means another impetus to the mining resources of this district.
In no section of British Colum
bia is   there   more   i*eal   active
mining  operations  than   in   the
Fort Steele district.
The Fort Steele dislrict is
iavored by an adequate water
supply, ore in abundance and of
a grade that will pay a good
profit, easy of access, wanting
nothing but good railway facili
Lies and cheap transportation.
The largest mining di.sli iei in
British Columbia is the noted
FoTt Steele district.
From the best authority it is
learned that a large amount of
railway construction will be commenced in South Esist ICootenay
during the coming summer.
The big tonnage ol average
•yrsido ore, when effectually
treated, make larger and more
permanent mines than shipments
only of picked material.

in the veins with lavish hand to
