A Great Future in Store  For the District.- r  Late advices from . Windor-  . mere are most encouraging.  Numerous locations have been  made, and altogether the district  promises to be a center of great  ruining activity.  The Paradise group is  one of  ' th��i most promising  in   llie  district; ' it Is   located   on   Spring  ���creek; Prom the surface il show;  tsd ore of a ."-hipping  grade,   and  ���WiLs readily bonded for tflOo.OoO  sind   .subsequently    bonded    for  *jr��0,()0(.)  to  ihe   Golden   B.   C.  Syndicate of  London,   England.  Tho present workings show sand  , carbonates   and   galena",    which  will average $o0 to the  ton,   al-  ihough much higher assays have  been made.  ��� It i.s a   remarkable  property, and is being 1borough -  '   ly and systematically* developed  '_ 1 iii.s winter.  The Paystone group on Horse  Thief creek, owiied by Li. 0. Jen-  ���siings, Robert Mokeeman and  Dan Stadlander, i.s being developed this winter. Mr. Jennings  interest'in the property is'pergonal and in no way connected  with the Kansas City -Smelting  A" Refining Co.  The Red Line i.s another prop-  , e.vtv ej-oneou.slv reported  to  be  under bond to, the Fraser & Chalmers syndicate, i.s being developed"   thoroughly,  this '.winter.  Thomas   Slarbird   is   managing  ,* i^iu property.    A rawhide  trail  has 'been' completed "from;; tlie  mine to .Pelevbo'ro, to enable srip:  plies to be brought  in  and  the  ore to be packed out.  ', The Del-,  phine is another property 'which  '����joy's the. distinction ' of .being  1 the first mine in the district from  . -which  ore   has  'been    shipped.  Work'is being continued on  this  property dining-the winter.'- Ore  /or shipment is being  extracted  .and taken.to tl^e.ColumlSia.'river  for shipment in Ihe spring.   '  The coming .season Will' witness great changes. Many more  jnities will be developed to * a  point where shipments can .��be  .confidently relied upon. The  building of the north and  south  a; reek, i.s one of the most promising claims in the district. It is  a silver-lead proposition carrying high values in gold. The  lead is about six feet in width,  and i.s exposed on the surface  for'-a distance of :��000 feet, or two  full claims. Assay returns give  a value to the ore of 51) ounces  in silver, and #^4 in gold, with  a high percentagein lead.       >'  EAST KOOTENAY.  re-  In  Has Other Resources  Than   Mining  East  Kootenay has  othei  sources lhan'that of mining,  the Kootenay valley from the in  ternational boundary, to  (.olden  lies as fine  u  tract   of  farming  land as can be found   in   British  Columbia.     Enough,  in  fact,   if  properly cultivated.��to supply a  large population.    But few mining sections are so well  favored  that the camps can   be  supplied  with homegrown'products.   The  necessity   of  sending  away  for  cere'alSj tubers etc is,, done away  with. There are now many tarms  under high cultivation, and there  limits can be extended.     Water  for irrigating purposes is_abund-  ant.    From what can be learned  the conditions  in  the  Flathead  valley are similar to those in the  Kootenay, and there, wheat sufficient   is, raised  to   supply   two  mills at Kalispel,   and  the  flour  produced in these mills  is  more  than-   sufficient   to   supply   the  home .demand,  and  as  a result  Kalispel Hour may  he  found  in  all parts  of  northern' Montana  and  Idaho,   and   even   iii   Fort  Steele.    With increased population mills  ,will  be  built  in' the  Kootenay valley, and [ Kootenay  brand of  flour ^.willr^be., as - well  knownas Calgary. 'Winnipeg -or,  that of any other section.       '  THE QTTANTB.EIX GROTnK'  Is Being- Developed.   A Good Show-  ___. ing' In Reported.  The Mount Sicker and B. C.  Development Company (Limited)  a Scotch corporation have commenced work on the group of  claims owned by.them and known  as the tyMiantrelJ group, located  in the vicinity of tlie North Star  mines. R. 0. Jennings has  charge of the work. Ho just returned from   the   property,   and  to arepresentathe ol'Tiuo Puos-  i,    *���  I'KCTOK said:  The group consist.-, of the  Quant roll, Utopia. Midget fraction, and Stonewall .Jackson.  The work thi.s winter will be confined to the three  latter' claim.s.  i}  The development, was only commenced a few day's ago but so  fur there is every indication tliat  the property is a good one. The  c��tppingcupon which sinking is  being done i.s principally iron  carrying galena, and. it is improving- all ^f the time. On the  Quantrell considerable work has  has been done in the  past. There is an excellent  showing of galena in  the  work":  '"#=*"��� ' ,' ' ; , ,'  Aside from assessment* work,  the present development, is ,the  first which has been done on the  property.-, The probability is  that thework will be continued  indefinitely .'r \ ' " ,/,  ��� The proximity of'the group to  the NorthsStar mine makes it a  particularly attractive proposition. ,   ���   : -    >->".    -  J. B. LANGLEY RETURNS.,. V.  to secure certain information before proceeding with the debate.  His critics estimate that the unexpected presence of Prentice on  the Government side, and the  absence of Joe Martin. w,ho did  not return from Vancouver until  this evening, were the important  factors in influencing the leader  of the Opposition. Anyhow, the  Government fairly met the challenge, offering him procedure  over all other business, and had  the satisfaction of finding him  unwilling to engage in the test  of strength.

Owing to the recent storm but  little   news   from - the    outside  ���ramps has reached Fort  Steele,  but what   lias   been   received  is  *j��>        most   encouraging.      The   force  oti the Chiekamon Stone is push  ing development and   .shipments  -will commence before long.      At  the Empire  there, is   no   letting  up on the-work planned   by  the  management.  A small number of 'men are  ���employed on the Dupont and Big  ���Chief mines and they are making good headway. The work  ��� at the Golden Five group is be  ing prosecuted with vigor. At  xhe Estella the management are  going ��� on with development,  -which ii]i to date is satisfactory.  From Copper* Creek.  A. W. Jileasdell has just received word from his pjjrtner,  *who is> doing work on the Lake  View group of mines on Copper  .creek, one of the tributaries of  .Skookuiii Chuck, lie says the  !e.a,d i.s eight feet wide.

It was almost impossible  to go much into tlie' detail of  miueral ..development.- Still .it  ���serves the purpose of letting 'ihe  outside world know the resources of the district. The good  work so auspiceously begun vrill  be carried on during the year.  The Palmer mountain tunnel  iu ihe Okanogan has been driven  2700 feet giving a vertical'depth  of*li'00 feet. Tn running'this  tunnel fifteen veins have been  cut and drifting has commenced  on eight of them. ���  The stock of the Sullivan mine  shows a, slight advance over last  week. The recent discoveries  on the property, which have enhanced its value; should call for  belter prices than'are quoted.  ' It is reported that tho new  strike in the North Star mine is  the most important ever made  in the property. The extent of  the discovery has not been made*  public, although it is said there  is anywhere, from eight to  twenty-five fc-et of ore.    ���  It is persistently said iu speaking of the l^ed Line group, in  the Windermere district, that it  i.s owned by the Fraser & Chalmers syndicate. Fraser**.t Chalmers have nothing to do with  the property, their business be-  in<i- purely that of manufacturing mining machinery. What  has given rise to this report is  the fact is that their New York  agent is interested in Ilio Ked  Line. ,  Will   Develop    Properties.j on -Sand  " ���  ^f   .^Creek. and-Moyie'r '-, #<���'"',  ������ " J. 13.

The claims  on Sand creek are said',to.bo  among the 'best in ' that section  and give promise of being mines.  Which Will Be Erected In' Fort  Steele In Short Time.  The members of the Fort  Steele brass band have decided  to erect-a new building which  will answer the purpose of theatre, practice and dance hall.  The building, will 'be thirty by  'seventy feet. The stage will occupy twenty feet of the hall, the  stage proper being twenty feet  square and eighteen feet high'.  > /Phis' will be well equipped  with scenery and all the accessories of a small' theatre. Fifty  feet of the room will be for  dances, public meetings etc.  The room will be clear for  dances. When completed the  room will be the best of its kind  east of Nelson ��� The construe^  tion of the building -has been  commenced.  Railway Notes.  The bridge . across the St.  Mary's, now under construction  by the North Star Jiranch railway, will be completed in about  two weeks. Steel has been laid  on a portion of the grade, and  it is learned that the trade will  be laid to Kimberley about the  2.")th of Ihe present month.  The first carload   of5 ore  over  o  tlie North Star Branch railway  will be shipped'from the Black  Bear mine.  There will be four liues run  I'or the north and south railway,  and the surveyors will start the  work next week. ���.  Do Not Forget the Hospital.

They will also be pleased  il" anyone desiring to take advantage oJ the benefits which subscribers are permitted to enjoy  will also leave their names at the  .-same place.  The members of the 'Kootenay  Club are agitating'the subject of  a new club building to be erecf-  ed/pn Riverside avenue, between  Ml-s. Levett's _and,_,the, office of  J. -A. Harvey., The details have  iiot'.all bee,n. arranged, but.the  probabilities are that it will be  built early in the spring. ��� Plans  for a building-will be submitted  'at the next meeting of the club.  Jti'the meantime the subiect will  be" thoroughly investigated and  the best methods of- raising the  amount required will bo discussed."  There is a strong probability  that the secret orders, of which  there are many members'in Fort  Steele, will jointly build a hall  suitable for their meetings.  While no definite plan has been  formulated the subject, has been  discussed in all its bearings.  Several new cottages will be  built in the early spring.  At a re-  ters  of  Winnipeg.

'   Mining: Failures  A  great  many   failures   made  in mining are due  to  the   inexperience  of   the   managers.      A  thoroughly trained businessman  who has  had ,no  experience  in  mining    or     ihotnllurgy     could  .scarcely be expected   to  outline  J.licj   plant,   mechanical   methods  and operation ,of a' large   mining  .concern/yet there are those who  .essay such  tasks., ^is  many   I'ail-  mres   attest.      Where companies  .or individualsare seeking mining  investment: it will pay them well  not Only to employ a man  to   report on the property, but to  en-  .gage   a  competent  engineer  of  known experience to arrange the  mining and   milling plant:   and,  when built, to place each department of the concern in charge of  an   experienced  specialist,   who  iij B     has achieved success elsewhere.  Thi.s will insure the best results:  fi,nd.   having  done  this,    it   the  (j    venture   prove   unprofitable,   if  k   will be known that it  cannot   be  1   made profitable by-others.'"

H,  Britain the Great. ���  Britain is the only secular em:  pi re .which in the hour of danger  could rest secure iu the love of  her willing people.  ' 'The British Empire is not  among the nations appointed unto death, for no empire over  went down in decay and ruin surrounded by such supporters aside children who are gathering  lo the help of Britain in the hour  of need.  The peoples to whom Britain  has brought peace and liberty  are represented in the petitions  of the Hindoo priests, who pray  in their own way I'or the continued greatness of Brilain and the  glory 'of    the    Empress-Queen.  The native princes of India  are  t '  ready to place their swords and  fortunes in the balance for Britain's sake, and Briton'sare gathering from the far part of the  earth. All these circumstances  show that British freedom is  bound up with British greatness  and that such a, precious heritage  will never be given up wilhout  a struggle which will shako the  world. ���7V)'-o''''o  Teler/nun.

Although the woods are  full  of  Gournay, in a recent issue of  Li'Economist Franca is, ' as to  what becomes of all the gold,  says the Canadian Mining ' Re'-  vicw. How has the world used  itv up and still fails to have,  enough? The answer given is  by no means complete; but the  writer notes that Ihe.arts aiid industries probably absorb about  riTi,000,000 worth of the metal  every year. ,- Another,, twerily-  'five to,fifty million  sterling.-he  *- u ~  thinks, goes into the coinage  of  the various gold-issuing, States,  but all this is lioi. new  gold,   because greater or less amounts of  old coin are every yeai;remitted.  If we take a mean  therefore  of  about t"40,1)00.OlK) a year  as  the  amount of. new  gold   made   into  coin, including the  consumption  in'the  arts,   we  seem   to   have  about ��.").000,000 used up  in  excess of the output. Whether that  be so or not���rand we  must   not  forget the prodigious  efforts  of  Russia to establish 'a gold  currency���it   is   certain    that    the  world has not yet given 'any   indication of having too much gold  Many states still remain  unprovided with   the   metal,   and   not  least the markets of greal  countries like England, France.  Gor  many, Russia.���, Austria, and.  last  but far  from   least,   the  United  States.    At ,all "great   monetary  centers tho cry at present i.s   I'or  more  gold   to  enable  credit   lo  work-   wilhout  friction,    and   to  prevent rates of interest on loanable capital  from   rising   to  the  height  that would   produce disaster.         Hebrews in the Army.  It is interesting to note that  among the troops mustered into  the service of the British War  Office are several companies composed exclusively of Hebrews.  Tu Bombay there are two companies of Hebrew soldiers, and  the army register shows that  thousands of Hebrews have enlisted in the British army in recent years, most of 'them., being  now with the army iii South  .Africa.  -   3*   ��  <W *i   a   :f,  A Madlciaa CJio-i: In Uiolf..        ��?

There does not seem to be any

is a train over'the road at present nearly every day.'but it, has
no schedule and is hot a daily

prospect for regular service before spring is not good." In the

Another interesting visitor to
the capital during the past week
was Mr. P. Labry of Manchester, England, who talked enter-
taingly of the Boer war. *• "The
end of the war will no doubt see
England supreme all the way
from the Capo to ■ Zambesi'', he
said. "The Boers had every advantage in men, munitions and
position ai the outset, and they
have won a few battles. But
Britain's sea power will enable
her to win in the end. Although
the navy may not fire a single
shot during the Avar, victory Avill
be due to it, not only because it
will make possible the transport
of unlimited troops and munition, but because it will proven I
any European nation from talcing part, no matter-how much
they wished to do so. "
