( Col. George Doughertyis hard  at work ont hi.-, elaini.'on Wild  Horse crook. Tho tpiartz has  the appearance of being rich.  A   strike  of  considerable importance   is   reported   at.Hard-  ��� scrabble creek a tributary of the  ��� Skookum Chuck. , 0  The Estella is on.' of the   best  "prO])0i'ties   in'  the    Port  -Steele  district. ,  The slock of the Sullivan mine  cshow.s a "slight decline.    The recent strike of eiyh'! loot of  solid  galena, and a   steady   output   of  tit)   tons "daily,   should   call    tor  c better prices than a re'quoted. ���  Jf is reported  ihal   tho  North  ,      Star mine lins an enormous body  *   of ore blocked out which i.s   estimated  from r>q, oooo  to ,100,000  tons.  There   is'every   reason to be-  *- liovo   that   considerable mining  ^property will change hands during  the  coming   week.     These  ��� deals if consumated will  bring a  large amount of money into   the  district.  From Windermere comes favorable reports of minora] development. ^ A.recent strike in the  Paradise" mine., and placing! of'  large quantities'of ore on*'the  Columbia" river for transportation as soon as navigation  opens.  The Tracy creek country is  again'attracting attention. A  large mining deal is under consideration which is ox peeled to  be closed in the near luture.  ��150,000 is tho amount   involved.  The recent snow has not  stopped work on any of the  properties in the vicinity of  Tracy Creek.  The American Smelting and  LiGriiiing Company claim that the  freight rates on IhoC. p. (.��. .in.  unfair, and they refuse to renew  contracts for Ihe purcfuiso of  , lend ores, until a lair rate can be  secured.  A continued relusal ' of the  smelling company to lake British  Columbia ores would mean tt  serious loss, and possibly the  closing down of a largo number  of mines.  The probable ellec.t. of the  American smelter combine's  action will be to loi;.;e the construction of a lead smelter in  South East Kootenay.  While tho British and Eastern  Canadian investors are inclined  to leave British Columbia alone.  United Slates people aro making  money out of the mines of this  province.  The Crow's No,-,l Coal Company are now taking out about  I.N 10 tons of coal daily.  South East Kootenay is coming forward wilh ureal strides  as a producer ol silver-lead  ores.
