The number of bonds now be-  kig taken on properties is a cer-  lain  indication   that , the    Port  "tecle district is attracting more  liiid more attention.  The new strike of galena on  the Defender is highly regarded,  and the owners are thoroughly  prospecting the claim.  ��Work in the shaft on the Estella has been discontinued, and  the men are now engaged in running the new tunnel, which is  being extended to connect with  the shaft.  On the properly of tlie Tracy  Creek Mining Company the work  is .progressing with satisfactory  results.  A   -Brief   Account    of   Development  "    Near Tobacco Plains and Elk  River.

He said -Mr., AI. Phillips has some promising properties, among them the Long-  worth, upon which little work-  has been done aside from assessment.    The work  on   the  claim  consists of a shaft  down  eleven  1  feet in depth in a lead nearly  four feet in widtli. carrying copper sulphides and,tellurium, the  latter, carrying, gold. Uu_the  back* end of this claim there are  several rich stringei s - carrying  the same character of ore.-. This  claim is located across.the gulch  from Little Copper mountain.

There, are  indications of seven leads traversing the'property, varying in  width from six inches 10; twelve  feet. Two of these loads carry  galena and some copper pyrites,  .the other leads consists of different varieties of iron pyrilos arid  copper. The properties are well  situated in-regard to timber and  water'supply, with a good trail  to the claims from -Port' Steele.

There are twelve quartz  leads on those claims, cutting the  formation, each carrying copper  and galena, with'some gold and  silver. No. 1 tunnel on. the  Happy Prank- is 48 feet in  length"; No. 2 is in 53(i feet. An  open cut was run which shows  a face of eight feet. On the contact a good seam of ore was encountered carrying coi^per' sulphides.  The Sweet May owned by Mr.  Scherf has three leads cutting  the formation north and south,  with a slight clip to the east.  The development consists of an  open cut of seventeen feet, at  the end of which a shaft was  sunk, having a depth of 27 feet.  The"ore is copper sulphides assaying $10 in all values. The  hanging Avail is quartzite, the  footwall porphyritic quartz. Two  hundred feet above this lead is  another lead with five, inches of  clean copper sulphides. Aside  from a little surface work no development has been done on this  lead. Below the main lead is  another ledge carrying gray  copper in talc. Assays from this  ore have returned a value of $104  to the ton.  The Jennie, the adjoining  claim, has an open cut, and a  tunnel driven in 5J8 feet. The  ore is galena and copper. Mr.  Scherf and several others are interested in the property.  The Last Chance owned by  Pred Tampion so far shows only  surface work. There are a number of other claims in the district, showing a greater or less  amount of development. The  district? is .seemingly" a very  promising one. and the surface  indications are excellent, the  leads strong and well defined,  and the quality of the ore in  most instances would justify still  further development.  general - .surrounding  conditions creek.  appear to be favorable.    So. far  the values of the  ore .from   the  various croppings has, not  been  fully ��   determined,       however,  samples which were taken about  (a month ago from the croppings  of the galena ledges gave a value  of from !iU7 to $120 in all   values.  What will be done in the   future  has not been decided as the  de-  'taiis^Tave not been fully  outlined, although it .is  possible  that  several men will be kept at work  this winter,   preparatory  to  an  extended     exploration'' of    the  property in the spring.   ,  E.

The life of  the - bond  is  one   year.      This  claim  has  been  well spoken of.  It is situated one half mile south  of the Pollen group and lies   between  the Tlardscrabblc owned  by Pred Hazen, and  the Alice  owned  by  Dewar and Murphy.  There is 12 feet of a lead  carrying  copper  and  galena  on   the  Emerald, and if is said to be one  of the best showings in that sec  lion.

JFOKT STEKLE MINING DIVISION  .An Expert   Opinion   of  Its   Mineral  Wealth.    A "Region of Vast Promise and Huge Ledges.  The Port, Steele Mining Divi-  sion of East Kootenay district  (comprises a large tract of country lying in'the extreme south  oast corner of .British Columbia,  bounded on the - south by  the international boundary  Jiiic. on- the east by Alberta,  ' one of the North West, territories; on the west by the "district  of West -Kootenay,' and on the  north by the water-shed between  lhe Columbia and Kootenay rivers.  The main valley' which is from  live to .fifteen miles in width, is  J'ormed from the Kootenay river  'which Hows in a south easterly  .direction for'li'O miles though  lhe district, separating the Pur-  .eell from' the-Rocky range of  -mountains. The intervening  country consisting of bottom  lands intersperced with ��� hay  .meadows which lie along the  .bank of the river andcits numerous , tributaries, while rolling  bunch grass hills, sparsely tim-  ��rcd with h'r,   yellow   pine.' and  ��� iamarac, extend back to the foot  of the mountains, affording every  facility for horse aud cattle  ranching, also farming on- a  .small scale.     But  it is  well  to  ,,bear in mind,  that, the- prosperity of' this district depends "en-  ! t.irely on the development, of its  mineral  wealth,   the possession'  of which has now  been   proved  "beyond the shadow of   a doubt,  sind it is only a  matter  of  time,  and we believe a short  time  at  Jjh'at,'' when this portion of  Brit-  '"ish Columbia will take" its -place  jlmong the.great mineral producing regions of-the continent.    A  grant change  has   taken   place  within the past year.     We have  ��� now several ore ' producing*  iMi'nes," freshvlocations and new  ���discoveries are being made,' and  "jflevelopnieiit work is'being pushed forward with much more zeal  and vigor on the different mineral belts, showing up valuable deposits of gold, silver and cop-  jxir.  Fort  Steele,   the  distributing-  point for the district, is situated  ' .on   a    bench    overlooking    the1  Kootenay at its confluence  with  Lhe St.  Mary's river  and  Wild  '.Horse   creek,   and   eight   miles  .from the Crow's Nest railway. It  will become in  the  near  future  one of the most, important places  In" the  mining  industry  of  the  (district. . I  Up   Wild  Horse  creek  about  Jive miles from Port Steele is the  .old Kootenay placer camp, out of  ���which millions in gold dust have  ibeen taken.    Two companies are  ait present engaged in  hydraulic  mining, besides some  chinamen.  .11, is a picturesque spot, with its  ' .ancient buildings. Chinese quarters   and   old   graveyard.,   surrounded by piles of debris,  bare  'bedrock   and     high    cut-banks,  showing the immense amount of  -work that has been done   in  the  ;past,    during   the   palmy   days  when gold could be got. in plenty.  Just for the digging:   and  without doubt there is a large extent  K_>f ground to  bo  washed- which  will  pay  well   for  the  trouble.  'iBut the chief interest from  now  on. .will center in the gold "quartz  properties  in  the   vicinity,,   as  jiumerous claims have been staked off on the main creek and  its  .tributaries.       Recent   development, work  and   assay   returns  :sliow that there are valuable deposits of  gold  quartz  within  a.  radius of four or five iniles of the  old placer camp, which are only  ���waiting for capital and, labor  to  'be worked to advantage.  Following the mountains north  from Wild Horse creek, a mineral belt extends for a' distance of  .thirty miles. There are numerous outcrops with good surface  rihowings on which many loca-  iions have been made..  Wild Horse.creek includes the  famous Big Chief, Dnpunt, L>ar-  diiiielles, Lilv May, Noble Pive.  and oilier i'ree-iiiilling gold  groups. In the sam*1 camp are  large deposits of galena, viz.,  The Kootenay King, Watson and  others. ' Gray copper and galena  are found iii the Dibble group,  Keystone and Percy and others;  while copper pyrites seems to be  distributed in large quantities,  carrying gold and silver, through  the entire mineralized zone of  thirty miles by twenty.  Tracy, Lewis and Wasa, with  Pour-Mile and Six-Mile creeks,  may be mentioned now as being  an extension," to the north, of  the same mineral belt.  The whole of this section is  highly mineralized the ore values  going as high as two thousand  dollars to the ton. Copper in its  various.forms, galena, high and  low grade: gold quartz, and  nickel are all to be found; usually  in large deposits. �� There is no  better field for investment than  this section. 4_  The Estella, Rover, Rams-  horn. Golden ' Fleece, Lewis  Creek Mining Co.; Tracy Creek  Mining Co., Wasa and Mammoth  all bear witness to1 the extraordinary shqwings of ore to be  found in this locality.  To the south ,the Bull _ river,  section, adjoins, showing large  deposits of gray copper, copper  pyrites, and gold quartz. The  most notable locations0 are the  Mabel, Chickamun Stone, Griffith group,'Empire, Blue Grouse,  and Tontine group. This takes'  us to the'Elk river section with  its copper showings. Prom here  to the international boundary  line is one succession of copper  .prospects, many of them with  excellent showings.,'Indeed, this  section,, so far, seems to -be a  copper belt solely, the ledges  being strong, ��� well defined and  continuous. \ The , country rock  includes slate, quartzite, diorite,  schist, porphyry, etc' The Burton; '' Wynstay, Happy 'Prank,  and others to numerous to' mention, are in this bolt. i   ���  This ends" up therRbcky'Mouu-.  tain" range- of mineral prospects  on the east side of the Kootenay  valley-in South East  Kootenay.,  North of this division the mineral belt runs through the "Winder -  ermere division where there are  some most excellent showings of  ore)   viz.,    the    Delphine,    Red  Line, Hot Punch, - Swansea  and  others, and thence  through   the  Golden   division,   forming, altogether    a    mineral    belt     that  probably has no equal.  -   On the west side of the valley  to the. boundary of West  Kootenay are some of the best known  camps in East Kootenay, to wit,  the  North   Star,   Sullivan,    St.  Mary's, Moyie and Perry creek.  Moyie is a camp  lying  by'  itself some thirty miles from Port  Steele. This belt contains galena  in large quantities.   The country  rock    is    a    metaphoric    slate,  lying  nearly  horizontal  with  a  slight dip to the east:    Through  this the ledges, true fissures, traverse, and are of great strength  and   continuity.     It  has  lately  been demonstrated that these fissure  veins  occur  on   the   west-  side of the latter;   the development  work   showing   up   large  bodies of high grade galena-.    As  most of  the  Moyie   mines   are  shipping ore they  may be considered as beyond  the prospect  stage, and practically determine  the permancy   of   the   ore   deposits. '.'..  Perry creek at  present  holds  its position as the premier  gold  camp, but we.imagine .that Wild  Horse  creek  .will    be    a    most  ���worthy  rival.     The  ledges   on  this creek are wide,  strong  aiid  continuous, the main ledges  being traceable for nearly   twelve  miles.     The   country   rock   includes slate,  diorite and  schist,  in.-which the veins occur.  . Most  of them are perpendicular.' veins  haying a strike to the north aud  south.      In   this   vicinity    many  copper   and  galena  lodes  have,  been recorded, so in time we expect. ;to nee if, develop into a good  active mining camp.     Some  of  DouQlas  Corsein  (CM-MP.)

' St. Mary's river includes the  North Fork, Alki, Mathew, Baker and White Fish creeks. This  is another copper country, the  country rock being chiefly syenite, hornblende, and schists with  slate and diorite. Tlie ledges  are strong, wide aiid continuous,  free on walls, sometimes heavily  iron capped, carrying pyrrhotite,  copper pyrites, galena, mispick-  el, etc. This section offers extraordinary advantages to large  companies, (the great drawback  at present being ��� want of transportation), as considerable development is required Lo pros-  pect these huge ledges. The ore  bears a striking resemblance to  that in West Kootenay, the pyrrhotite being exactly similar and  the occurrence iu similar conditions. In course of time ..this  section is,bound to be one of the  largest .copper producing sections in .British Columbia.  The North Star, and   Sullivan  groups,   last   but,.certainly  not  the   least.      This belt contains  the   largest   known   deposit   of  (silver-lead) /galena  in   the  district, if not in the world.'  These  two large group of  mines,   over  two hundred, are situated about  twenty    miles    west    of     Fort  Steele, have a bright future  before them. ;As the only shipper  in" this section -for  three  years  the North  Sfar  has kept East  Kootenay well before the public,  and is still���doiiig so by  its  further developments.     The 'Sullivan is following its-good example, and we trust to see the time  when these properties  will  re-;  quire a smelter  for each  mine.  Through' this _ belt 'runs  a' very  strong vein of mineral  carrying  pyrrhotite and copper pyrites in  a silicious-matrix .which occur.in  a contact fissure t between slate  and diorite.. This ledge'is traceable for, a considerable distance,'  ,thus giving indications of being  permanent and continuous.    The.  country rock is altered slate and  schist, and bears some  comparison ,to  that  around  the  Moyie  mines, but the ore deposits do not  occur in the same form.       ' ,    ,  . The great feature pi"  this  district  is  tho  extraordinary, preponderance of eruptive rocks and  the infinity of veins that seem to  run in every  conceivable direction, all of them carrying mineral.    As the country is still in its  infancy it, is  only fair  to , trust  that it  will  become   one   huge  mining camp.  If one ledge out of  fifty-turns out well,   it  will  be  hard   to  find  its equal   in   any  known part  of   the world,   and  o  the diversity of minerals gives  every investor an opportunity to  support his preference.

Transportation Notes.
According to the Libby (Montana) News. Capt. Miller who
owns the si earner North Star
has in contemplation the putting
of the steamer in commission to
run from Libby to Tobacco
Plains, in order to make a mar-
ket for the products oi the
Kootenay valley.

To get into Nelson the Oreat
Northern has resorted to strategy.    "A  visitor  from   Nelson
' says that the new electric street
railway company is laying heavy
steel railroad iron along' Baker
street, and that he would not be
iHirprisod if it will turn out a
scheme of Jim Hill's to enter the
city with his passenger coaches
from Spokane on the Nelson &
Fort Sheppard line," says the
Rossland Record." Our informant says that the excuse for
putting down the heavy rails is
thitt lighter ones cannot be had
is not credited, and that it seems
not at all unlikely   that the  de1
'"sire of the people oJ' Nelsoli and
ihe Nelson & Fort , Sheppard
road to enter the town is lo be
- accomplished by-strategy and in
a. quiet way, which could not be
done,oiherwi.se on account of the
'opposition of the'C. 1^. 11..    The
'president of the si reel railway
company  i.s   .president .of    the
-C if rand Trunk, which is pointed
out as another reason why the
rumor might be true.*'

'    ' The North Star company  will
contribute s."iO,00()   towards  the
co.st, of llio  branch /line  to   the
mine, but th'is amount will bo refunded by  a   rebate' of  ','>ii.\   per
cent of all charges on all u;eight
of the company going over" the
.line" until HVof.-raO^OOi) is fully  repaid.,
fi   Thirteen  miles  of  the  Lardo
branch of tho .Canadian   Pacific
-is graded -and   five   miles   more,
well under way.    The  contractors say,that if the rails "wore  at
hand: a train could be run  from
'Lardo  to   Duncan,  City   within
thirty days.
There is a vast amount of
speculation regarding the north
and south railway which was to
be built, up itha valley of the
Kootenay, and continued on to
Golden. ,11 has been stated that
lhe C P. R. through its'London
agents are negotiating for tho
charter^ and another statement
is made that the Greaf Northern
will buikl the road. The people
of'this valley are indifferent as
to who will build the ...road, providing that it i.s built. "We are
informed that a definite statement will bo made regarding the
construction of this road, in a.
few days.
The recent rains have "played
the dickens with the railway.'
While bill Few pari iculars can he
obtained, il is learned that two
bridges have been washed oui between the Fort Steele junction
and Maclood, and I hat a big mud
slide is liable to detain all trains
for a, few days until dry weather
sets in.
Rossland from August 3rd tu 5th
has been published in pamphlet
form.
The fall meeting of the members of the Canadian Mining In
stitute will be held at Nelson, B.
C, on Tuesday evening Sept. 12.
Among those who will contribute
papers are: Howard West. A.
R. S. M.. New Denver: W. Pel-
lew Harvey. F. C. S.. Vancouver: S. S. Fowler. E. M.. and
R. R. Hedley. Nelson, and William Blakemore, M. E.. Fernie.
A meeting will also be held at
Rossland, when a paper relating
to the geology and mining practice of ihat district will be presented., The Boundary district
will subsequently be ' visited.
The visitors will be banqueted

The  Rambler.
The town- of New Denver's
situated in one of the prettiest
places iii West Kootenay. JSro
where could there be a prettier
lownsite. ' Tlie effect however is
marred by the .unsightly stumps
which are v in evidence , every
where, even, in the' prmcipn]
streets. This was the condition
of affairs two years ago and'
there is no reason to believe that
it has changed. There are a few
slumps about Fort Steele which
could °be removed without detracting from the°appoarance of
the town. . u
Fort Steele is more fortunate
than most mining towns, in that
there is few public offences
against morality, the average
westerner does, not parade his
virtues, nor does he atieinpt to
hide his shortcouiinus. Then'
are. however, times aud cccit"-''
ions when in the exhuberenco of
his  spirits,   ho   will   give utter
,     i1 i
nice   to   hinguag'e -which   i.s not,1
speaking of the  Coeur d'Alene
country, that it i.s now in  better
shape than it  ever  was. before,
and is now being steadily  developed.     And that the output for
the present year will exceed that
of last year notwithstanding the
recent trouble.     The mill of the
Bunker Hill and Sullivan -which
wa.s wrecked by the  mob  a  few
months   ago.   has   been   rebuilt
and is now   in  operation.      The
Sunset Peak country is now  being opened up, and the Northern
Pacific Railway  is  constructing
a branch to thai point.   The outlook for the Coeur  d'Alene  wa.s
never so good.
