Thore are a number of promising properties . in the vicinity  of Port Steele owned by poor  men who lack funds to develop  their claims.  The mining outlook, for South  East Kootenay this year is most  favorable at present, and with  natural impetus which it will receive from the building.of a  smelter at Marysviile, and increased transportation facilities,  thexfuture surely looks rosy for  the district.  There are a number _o'f promising prospects being steadily  worked by their owners ou Tracy  creek.  A good deal of interest is being taken in the nickel deposits  on Wild Horse ei'eek.

Since'ping-pong was introduced at an afternoon tea, at ��� the  Imperial Hotel a short time ago,  the game has become quite popular in ' Steele. The amusement  has^ been- quite a fad iu London  for   some   time,   and it   is  not  *. y  strange that Steel ites should  take it up with some fervor. The  name .ping-pong probably, comes  from the sound the vellum-cover-  ed racket makes as it strikes the  celluloid balk back in return or'a  "smash"cover the six-inch net on  the dining table to the opponents  court.

A Stout Imperialist.   ,    r ^"  '   ' $  Toronto,   Jan. 29.���Honorable  George E. Foster delivered an  address on imperialism last  night. He held that the best,the  future held for .Canada was  national life in conjunction with  the old country that gave her  birth. Some people, he said,  seemed afraid of the word,.imperialism, but there . was no  reason why underatrue imperialism Canada should not, hold all  her present power, and' at the  same'time be a closer component  and integral part of the British  empire around the world. " Tho  two great reasons why imperial-  ism^was a'grow ing' power were  sentiment from , within and  pressure from without. r The  power from, within was a strong  loyal" feel ing to institutions, form  of government and general lines  progrcss��and civilization typified  by the mother country.'?0 The  outward pressure was the .hostile  sentiment, with, .which almost  every "country in the word regarded Great Britain.
