Ic is reported  that the  Rossland strike has been called, off.  i  It is interesting to note the  progress made in mining during  the past year in British Columbia  It is reported that 40 stamps  will be installed ou Perry creek  this spring.  The Rod Line mine near Windermere has sent a trial shipment of ore to New York.  Placer mining ou Wild Horse  creek is rushing along.  _, The greatest wire-rope  ���way system in  Rib Tiutol Spain.

The  copper  market  has been  -  dull and weak for the past week  In New York lead has been  quiet and unchanged at $4. At  London lead was Is 3d higher.  The  ores  of  the  St.   Mary's  district carry good values in gold  'and copper.  ��� If will  pay  prospectors to be  .on the lookout for platinum.  Platinum is not found in ledges  but in black sand containing  ii largo percentage of magnetic  iron ore and a-varying quantity  of gold.  In all placer mining' districts  large .amounts of platinum have  been thrown away by the miners  who did not know the value of  the product.  Three hydraulic plants will  begin working in the spring on  Wild Horse creek.  The regular clean up at lhe  Perry creek placer mines is sa.id  to have averaged $15 to the man.  Not since tho early 00's has  Ihere been more activity shown  in placer mining than just now  in this district.

THe Department of Mines has issued an approximate estimate of,the mineral production of the province for the year  1901:  The tonnage of ore mined from lode mines in the year  past i.s about 871,832 tons, equal to an increase of 317.036  over the year 1900, a little more than 57%.  The gross value of the copper output has increased 206%  over 1900. While lode gold has. increased -\6��/ and silver  147.' .���,*'*������ * ,\-  There has been an increase in the output of all metals with  the exception of lead, 'the low price obtainable' in ' this Province for lead ores having discouraged this class, of mining,  except .when accompanied with good silver values. 0.  ' Roughly speaking, the increase, made in 1901 over 1900 is  25% on gross value of output of the Province. This' will be  a very agreeable surprise to many, as the circulation of reports giving a contrary irhpression has caused'a very despondent view to^beTtaken of the progress of th% mining industry  during 1901."which does not seem warranted by the facts."

'  A large number of prospectors and miners in the vicinity  of Fort' Steele are' getting their  outfits together' in anticipation  of an early spring. There is no  doubt but there will be a large  increase in development of  quartz mines during the present  year, and a number of shipping  minos will be added to the list of  producing mines.  . Placer   Alining'   in  South East Kootenay.  There are comparatively few  people who know anything -'of  the extent of the placer "mining  in ' the Fort -.Steele, district.  There^is a popular idea that the  days when placer mining can be'  carried on jvith its'meed of .profit  has ��� passed. , This ���- idea is held  for the reason it���is claimed, that  placer, fields have *"' been discovered and the wealth extracted  long ago. ,  The truth about placer mining  however,' is that future years  will see a larger yield of placer  gold than in, the past. As a  proof of this fact it is only  necessary to note- the amount  that is being taken out year after  year by the companies that are  now engaged in  that direction.  with any.of the mining towns in  the province. ���  Capital will not overlook a low  grade proposition if the ore  body is large enough, and not  too expensive to handle.  The Canadian Smelting Company will erect ' a refinery at  Trail, B. C.  Buy Panama Canal.  The   supplemental   report  Neaviug1 Completion.  A vocphI report, from   Elko  is  10 tho offoot 1,800 men are now at  work on lho construction of  the  Crow's Nost Southern mil way in  this district.    The Chief of Con-  si ruction ha.s been   notified   that  the steel .will    be  laid   to" tht:  boundary by Fob. 10th; and that  all, preparations  must  be  completed so as to avoid delay  from  that   point   to   the   coal   fields.  Track laying from the boundary  will commence on Feb. 10th and;  be completed   to  the coal fields  by the middle of April. 7  It is reported that a trial  line  will  be run from Elko north as  far.-as Winder mere, early  in  the  of j spring.' 7 17  The Wild Horse diggings  were  first worked.'in 1863 and 64,  and  the   crude, appliances of  those  days were  used .to   advantage,  and millions in gold were  taken  out.     After a   while   howevei",  many of the "old  timers'"  abandoned   the   diggings.      But. as  years   have   passed   since   that  time, from $10,000 to $��0,000 has  been  the  yearly record for the  district.     Gold remains in la-.ge  quantities   on  Wild  Horse and  Perry creeks,   Moyie and   Bull  rivers, only awaiting modern appliances for its  extraction,   and  the    future    yield   will   surely  prove as  in  the past that there  is large quantities of placer gold  yet to be taken from  the  rivers  and    streams    of   South   East  Kootenay,   and  lhat the palmy  days of Wild Horse creek are  not passed but on the  contrary,  yet to come.  Duties Commenced.  Mrs. .Anderson the assistant  "matron at the EJort Steele  hospital arrived on Sunday evening last and at once commenced  her duties. r Mrs. Anderson  comes "well recommended and  will prove a valuable assistant  to. the 'natron. She is .not' a  stranger in the Kootenays having lived at Ainsworth 'for5 a  number of years, where her late  husband was Constable and Recorder. He was acting recorder  at }Vild Horse creek during Gold  Commissioner Vowell's time, he  was also stationed at Donald and  Roger's Pass. ���  P  ANNtTAI*   MEETING.

Although the .contrary was  contended by the American  Smelting; &, Refining Company  officials, the organization' has  been made,?'as results show, to  provide against participating in  any losses which may arise from  lower prices in-the lead market,  contrary to the statements-that  tlie combine, would be able to  maintain prices, they have now  announced that the price" to be  paid for lead-for another stated  period will only''-be maintained  so long, as*the") miners continue  to curtail the output, and  tlie ; price to, be paid  producers under this new contract is less than was paid during  "the first period. Rates for  smelting and refining are (.maintained and in some  details even  "advanced, notwithstanding important reductions-in cost have  been introduced. Lead purchasers will always have market conditions to confront, but they may  be,, assured that so long as the  purchase and sales-of their ores  and the pig or bullion'therefrom  are controlled by a corporation  without competition, they alone  will have to.bear any Josses arising and at the sama time assure,  a profit to thea smelting corporation.,   It would seem .preferable  -for the miners to build and, operate their own smelters and, refineries, and to make7 their own  sales if they are to continue to  do business, and that this will  be done seems sure if the miners  continue to retain and operate  their, mines. ,��� Outside the absorbing of the mines by' the  smelter people,' this is-the only  solution.���Mining.

Senator Pettigrew of Pennsylvania has introduced a bill in  the United States Senate which  provides for an ad volorem lax  of 25% on all silver ore, bullion  partially smelted or in mass entering, the United States from a  foreign country.  The measure will be fought by  the big refineries and smelters  as it will result in keeping out a  large quantity of silver ore which  is now imported.  The Mining and rOngiiieeriiig  Review, San Prancisco, in comment says, "Ou the other hand  the bill .should be supports! by  the silver miners of.*the United  States, as it will be the means of  enlarging the market for silver  ore and bullion. If the demand  should becqme sufficient and the  price attractive enough, the sil-  ven mines of the United Stales  should supply all required by  foreign buyers of fine silver".    '{?'
