" -'Wo did not'tarry long at the  mines,- for . the  good  people "of  1  Port1 Steele had extended an invitation to a banquet in their old  historic town.     Tha ��� pace set by  Whirlwind Peters was last, there  was no limb to tarry by tlie wayside, no time to take a nap while  t,he    train   was   being-   loaded.  'Every man had to be on deck in  rime or he stood a good chance  <���>�� being left behind.   The return  jrrm was made to Doris- where a  KHimbur  of .two  and  four-horse  fleams awaited to take us tO'Fort  Steele.    It is about 8 or 8A; miles  ' from Doris  to   Fort  Steele.   * I  ���wmnot speak for all   the  tosuhs.  Only   one   or two  got' tnrough  without, some  accident* or  mishap, but no bones' were  broken.  �� juurped'inlo tlie  first  sleigh. 1  <��i.mo to.      We wero not the first  no start, but heavens! you should  Riave seen us when we once  got  started.      No  man  would   have  -placed his money on .our  team,  they weresmall, lean, long  oar-  t\f],  shaggy-haired  pair of  llea-  ktitlen greys.    There were other  tine turn-outs, and the four-horse  fa'.iunK were picked  on  as   winners.      There   was  no question  About it there was going to be a  race.      All   wished  to  win  and  cheered their driver.   Our driver  had only  one  name,   "Slivers",  and he is a dandy. ..   Stage-driver Barnes can take a back seat.  ,-iSlivei's" jumped up on the seat  'ii,nd gave our, flea-bitten, horses  fche word���Adam and   Eve  they  were named���and away we went  into   the   darkness   among   tall  timbers and; stumps.      "Slivers  tlid not coax them  he ������wore at  fchem in, several, languages,   and  swore that he  would cut   beefsteaks off thern if they allowed  another team to pass.    We were  upset, piled one on  top   of   the  .other among broken   seats,   and  -Slivers" was under  the sleigh  twit he held on.    'The   box   was  only righted on the sleigh and  we were orderedt to jump'in.  Some protested to' riding,'with,-  out seats but that was ,,110 go.  "Slivers'", allowed that,, the seats  and blankets could go to h���.  Then' one on ^top* of another  we piled in, and everything else  was left behind. ,We. only hit  the high places and finished our  wild ride just thirty minutes  ahead of all the 'rest! Every  load had , , a very .sex-  citing .experience except ��� one.  Their horses threw up the  sponge and refused to go.., The  chaps in that sleigh walked lo  town. It was rare fun to listen  to the stories that each had to  tell. Some vowed that they  would never go sleigh-riding on  a Kootenay trail again.  The'Fort Steele,band was out  to meet us, and, when all had got  together we sat down to one of  the finest spreads that has probably ever been prepared in  Kootenay.- The board of trade  and citizens of Fort Steele will  never be forgotten by the excursion party of the C. P. R.  This the last banquet and after  the inner man had been satisfied  the to'asting was commenced  with great vigor. * The visitors  had a, right royal welcome; and  they had men among them who  knew how to return thanks.,  There' w^bro a number who made  eloquent speeches among-.the"excursionists, and the representative men of Cranbroolf, Fernie  and Fort Steele.  Precious Metale.  'The majority of people when  asked to name the most precious  metals, usually mention gold as  first, platinum second arid silver  as third," said the proprietor of  a large assaying and refining  establishment iii New York, to  the writer, recently. "If asked  to name others, some might add  nickel; and a few aluminum to  the list. Now let us see how1  near the truth they would be.  Gold is worth about $2:"0 per  pound, troy, platinum $.180, and  silver about $.1.2. Nickel is worth  about 60 centsiand pure alumin  um from 50 cents to two  dollars  to the troy pound.  "We will now compare these  with the prices of the- rarer and  less known metals. To take  them in alphabetical order, barium the metal which Davy isolated from its ore, baryle, in  1808, sells for $950 a pound, when  it is sold at all, ���and calcium is  worth $1,800 a pound '.' Cirium is  a shade higher; its"cost is $160  an ounce, or $1,982 per pound,  but they do not reach the highest point, chromium being'$200.  Cobalt falls' to about half the  price of silver, while didymium  the metal isolated by Masander,  is the same price as calcium.  Then comes gallium which is  worth $3,250.por ounce.' With  this metal the highest price is  reached, and it may well be call  ed the*rarest and most precious  of metals.  "Glucium is worth $250 per  ounce, indium $150, iridium $685  a pound, janthanhnn. $175, and  lithium $160 per ounce. Nidium  costs $1.28 per ounce; osmium,  palladium, platinum, potassium  and rhodium bring, respectively,  $640; $400, $130, $32 and $512  per pound. Strontium costs$128  an ounce, tantaum $154, tilurium  $9, thorium $272, vanadium $820,  yttrium $144, andzinconium $250  an ounce. *  "Thus we see that the commonly received opinion as to  what are the most precious metals is quite erroneous. Barium  is more than four times as valuable as gold, and gullium more  than 162 times as costly, while  many of the metals mentioned  are twice and thrice as valuable.  Aluminum, which cost $8 and $9  a pound in 1890, is now produced as -cheaply as are iron, zinc,  lead and copper."���Washington"  Star. . .

The writer with a few friends  undertook a prospecting trip  through tlie Windermere Mining  distiiet of East Kootenay, where  he intended to remain a few weeks  having found that, that region  vvasiof sufficient importance to  warrant more than a passing* inspection. '"^I,  Windermere,   situated  on  the  east bank of the  Lower Colum-  <t=  bia lake, and some 75 miles north  w ,      >.* *  of Port Steele, is the outfitting  point for all journeying into the  promised land where the silver  shines like fish scales as it <jlft-  over the mam  fo  )f T  (ipv i'.iti'  mni on it* northern hide is located the Mineral King.

Tlie owners  of the property are Hen Able  and Ed. Perry of Windermere.  On the north fork of Toby creek  and some six miles northward oi  the Mineral King, is   the  center  oiy>, beine* similar 1o liiiil   of   the  Sitting      IJull     therefore    high  :ra<ie.  The grciit advantage  of  this property   is  tlie   oase   with  which it can be opened mi.    The  lead extends almost along the  summit of a high ridge. J.Sy  driving in short tunnels atdili'er-  ent points along'the ridge, the  ledge can be tapped hundreds of  feet beneath the surface. This  property is owned by George  Geary of Port Steele and others.  Similarly circumstanced are the  of   the   mining   activity.      The Sinclair,     Pet.    Equitable     and  Dolphene and the Six Hundred  and Sixteen are located on tho  north slope of the creek. The  Dolphene shows a lead averaging on tho surface 2 feet in width  with IS inches of clean ore, but  by sinking on j,he lead it rapidly  grew wider, until when down 25  many others too numerous to  mention, many of which, will  pay from the surface and carry  ore,of a high grade quality.

The most valuable mines so'far discovered are  on Toby creek, Horse -Thief  crook, and their tributaries.,  These streams are about 45 miles  long and flow in a  northeasterly  ' direction where I hey meet' and  com bine do JJorm the waters of  the'grand old Columbia river in  its unceasing flow lo the sea.  HYoin the Columbia river the  valley extends back* about' 15  tnilos.to the loot of the mountains on llie'west, which rise in  j successive heights until they become a dazzling light far above  timber lino, "whore their toweling peaks are crowned with snow  , and ice.  The formation of the country  chielly consists of lime slate,  quart/ite and schist. ' These formations extend back' 20 miles at  least from the foot of the mountains, where a granite formation  sets in and extends, presumably,  to the top of the range. The  principal leads so far discovered  are found in the ' lime -.slate and  quartzite. and on Toby and Horse  Thief creeks, up to ihe granite  formation indicated, there is one  great mineral field with ledges  of*high grade galena, grey cop  per and other ores, running due  north and south. As there has  been no'prospecting done north  of Horse Thief creek,  it'  is   not  ,yet known how far the leads extend in,that direction.    Like  all  ent owners Messrs. Starbird and | Mathers and. T. H. Taylor of  Collett have an incline "shaft' Port Steele. ' Continuing up the  dowu 60 foet. - The lead shows j main fork of Horse Thief creok  a width of 4 feet with   1(5  inches i and nearing the  granite  beL a  of clean ore in the face, which  assays from 120 to 800 ounces in  silver and 60 oer cent lead.  I Whilst in the camp a rich discov-  'ery was made'byBaptiste Mori-  geau, on tlie south side of the  little north fork and opposite the  Dolphene. Tho character of the  ore is the same as that on the  Dolphene and Hot' Punch, the  lead being about two feet in  width. This property has been  bonded to R. R;. Bruce of iJon-  don. England, who intends  working a force of men during  the winter. Following the main  mineral belt over the divide into  Boulder creek, a tributary of  Horse Thief creek, a country is  entered in which a number of  rich discoveries have been made  during the past summer pand  fall. Among other fine propjer=  ties are located the Sunrise, Sunset, Sunlight, Mary G.,Jack\Pot,  Cracker Jack, Gipsy Girl. Black  Bull, Sitting Bull and (.the Bull  That Never Sits, all of which  have exceptionally good ��� surface  showing with high grade ores  that will pay from the croppings,  rather similar to the now famous  Slocan region. The leads are  found either near or abpvc timber line, aud according to ane-  roidal   measurements   ^200  feet  other uew camps little  development has been done, yet. in seme  instances,    sufficient  work    ha.s  been done to reveal the fact that  the leads continue  rich   beneath  the surface.    On copper creek, a  tributary of Toby  creek,    there  have been 53 locations made during the past summer.      Among,  many other line locations i.s   the  Morning Glory.      The   ledge on  this claim is  4   feet  w ide,    well  mineralized, and   carrying  both.  copper   and   gold;    the    assays  show 20 per cent copper and  %V.l  in gold.      The  Troy or and Copper King, also have good surface  showings, and carry ores of  the  same    grade   as    the    Morning  Glbry.    .The  leads  on   Copper  creek are,.as a nils, from I to(5 ft  wide, and run from $-15. to $60 in  above sea level. The Sitting  fiull, Mary G. and Colorado  mineral claims, which are located  on the northern slope of Boulder  creek, are under bond to a Nelson syndicate for the sum of  ��-10,000. The ledge is from 3 to  ���1 feet wide and assays .from 90  to 843 ounces in silver and 48 per  cent lead. The ledge can be  traced on the surface for -1,500  feet. The owners are Wellington Kinney. Baptistc Morgeau,  E. J. Johnston and George  Shirks. On the opposite side of  the gulch from the Sitting Bull  the' Cracker Jack group of claims  is located. This group consists  of seven claims, tlie Cracker  .Jack, Reform, Massey, Well  Done, Nick of Time, Black Bull,  and Stemwinder.      The width of  copper and gold values. Crossing (the lead i.s from -I to 10 feet,  the  point,is reached where a great  many, discoveries of galena ore  have been made duringitlie latter part of,, September. The  ledges are from 20'to -10 feet- in  width, but as yet ho assays have  been obtained from any of the  ores ih the locality so that their  value is not yet known.  , The writer has seen many well  known camps throughout Colorado, Utah, Idaho aiid Washington and has never met with  such exceptionally fine surface  showings combined with so high  a grade of ore. Surely this must  make a now Eldorado almost beyond even the dreams of the  prospector. Away to the north  and northwest of Horse Thief  creek extends a magnificent panorama of mountains, with fields  of snow and glaciers intermingled, on which the sun's hot' rays  during the summer months make  no impression, and under which  God only knows what wealth lies  [ridden. , =���  One of the chief needs of the  country at present is a bridge  over the Columbia river at the  Salmon Beds, and also tho repairing of tlie bridge across  Horse Thief creek, which was  partly destroyed by fire a few  years ago. This' would enable  one to cross over in safety without taking desperate chances pf  ^drowning or losing a whole outfit by attempting a dangerous  ford. A wagon road should be  built'from the Salmon Beds up  Toby creek as far as the north  fork, and up Horse Thief, creek  to the junction of La.w and Boulder creeks. By means of these  public works a.great many properties of low grade, ore coujd be  profitably handled.  Water arid timber are in great  abundance throughout the whole  region. _������'.���''������  ' Imagination could hardly picture a.'more desirable country,  and in'the midst', of these surroundings and evidences ofboni-  ��� licences of Providence, the hardy  prospector must surely realize  that this section of (.he country-  holds out to him, speedy and  sure'returns for honest toil.
