'   Some good looking copper ore  has been found on the.-' Mystery  group ofr claims, located on  Whilefish crook, during the past  month.  During tho past year silvor-  leael mining has bqen very active  in Southeast Kootenay.  Among the most promising  mines in the Wild Horse district  is the; Tiger Poorman uroup of  mines, belonging to Jolin P.  Larsen of Fort Steele. ,  Perry Creek i.s the center of a  -rich placer miniiiy district, and  has- become important as a drift  mining camp. In fact three important drifl mines are being operated.  The' Theis ceimpany have a  shaft sunk and are .drifting on  bedrock. 'The Perry0 Creek  ��� Hydraulic Co. are also prospecting ,l heir "gravel by drifting on  bedrock. The principal objec-  rive point of the Thompson Co  is the finding of an ancient  channel, an unknown area of  virgin ground,'the oxislen.ee of  which'has been proveu���by drifts,  in "shafts sunk. A number of  men are engaged in active mining operalions, cb'ielly in taking,  out pay, gravel from the old  , channel of Perry creek, now being tapped by these,drifts.  ,Tlic most important gold fields  in Southeast, Kootenay arc on  W,ild Horse creek four miles  from the town of Fort Steele.  .There are vary good , reasons  for believing that, the strong,  'well-defined veins upon wh ch j  most of the. important golel  quart//veins are located, which  arc practically untouched, will  become producing mines in the  near future.

East Kootenay practically con  tains every variety of mineral  wealth that i.s knejwn to' exist in  North America. The great  ���wealth of the district has, been  known for years, iind in tho  early days of placer mining it  yielded millions, but lack of  means of communication and Ihe  heavy cos I of transportation of  supplies and machinery have retarded mining operations. The  construction of the Kootenay'  Central rail way,. which will be  under construction" during the  coming spring, will remove the  impending obstacles. The railway .which will traverse "the  Kootenay valley, north iind  south, through the richest part  of the Fort Steele mining district, will give a marvelous iml  pulse to the work of development, and by this new avenue of  communication, give access "to  this region, 'and a new mining  empire will bo opened,up  Notwithstanding the disadvantages under which Southeast  Kootenay has labored during life  past year, mining1-' operations  have been carried on successfully  and on a large -scale at Moyie  and Kimberley, and with the,  now in sight, adequate means of  transportation the work e>f development will rapidly .increase.

Jt Js believed that the prices  for iron ore will be about 50  cents per ton higher in 1900 than  they were the past, season. This  would mean about 83.50 , for  Mesabi Bessemer and 83.10 to  83.20, for non-Bessemer. The  old range ores average about 50-  ceuts higher than the Mesabi .  ores. Whether the "Bessemer  Ore association,-'which has always had a finger in the market  of recent years, will be revived  the coming season; appears to be  au uncertain'question.' The association could not agree on the  output and prices the past season  so dissolved. Some think that,  the association will begin a new  life in 1905. The prices on Lake'  Superior iron ores for l!)05 i.s a  live     subject " now. Mesabi  Bessemers arc selling at prices  that promise 83.50 and better for  the coming "year, and 83.10 to  83.20 for non-Bessemers.

In fact some ores are  now selling for next year's de- '  livery on this basis and if the  situation in iron circles continues  fo strengthen, if is expected that  even higher prices may prevail.  --Nelson Daily News.

Tin* I'x-'i.'ilir.ioi) of l!,*e Northwest MiMinieil P-'liwi to discover
;i path between'Dawson City and
the;' Mackenzie Riveir will be
watched with much interest. It
is evident that severe as the
winter is in those latitudes, it is
regarded as a better season for
covering ground than is the
summer., This is due to the fact
that Jack Frost is' a great road
maker and the husky dog an unequalled draught animal in such
trackless snowy wilds.
Few countries have ever been
better served than has Japan by
Admiral Togo aiid the men of
his lieet. The service has been
one of enormous difficulty j hardship and danger. ■ Since May he
has been almost without intermission at sea in all sorts of
weather, and' constantly on the
lookout to prevent either egress
or„ regress" from Port Arthur.
The work is not unprecedented,
for, as we know, Nelsejn watched
the harbor of Toulon from May,
1803, to August, J805, during all
' that period being oui of his ship
but three times. Nevertheless
the task of the Japanese Admiral
has been a giant one, it has been
admirably accomplished, and his
countrymen may well say well
elono. He has but toc meet the
Baltic squadron to complete his
service to his native land.
