The Oranby" smelter is now,  undoubtedly, with its stand of  two copper converters, the Jarg- ,  est copper smelter in Canada.  As there seems to be no trouble  in regard to the supply of coke',  it is expected ���that the smelter  will he able lo operate indefinitely lo its fullest capacity, requiring some increases'in the working forces both itt mines and  smelter, where-now close to 700  men are employed.     "  ,  The Canadian government will  do genera] diamond drill pros-  peeling for quartz in the Yukon  district, two drills having been  purchased for the 'work. One .is  at While Morse, where it will be  used lb explore the copper veins  and the other will be sent to  Dawson, to work on the gold  ledges.   7  Mining is quiet at Moyie.

Wood  and water abound in inexhaustible quantities and the close  proximity to gold quartz mines  and other attractions make this  an ideal camp.  It is claimed, that upon the  construction of the, Kootenay  Central railway? the next mining  district to attract the attention  of the mining world will be the  country embraced in the Fort  Steele mining district.  Investments iu Southeast  Kootenay mining properties as a  general thing have proved satisfactory lo lhe investor.  It is well known that iu the  Fort Steele and Windermere  mining divisions there are large  deposits of zinc ores associated  with silver and lead values. At  present these are absolutely  valueless and the only thing that  will bring them to a market is  tlie" immediate construction of ������".'  the Kootohay Central railway.
