A Large Excursion Visits tho Pioneer  City of Southeast Kootenay.  The steamer Nortii Star  arrived at Steele on Monday  evening, having on board an excursion party from Rlko. Owing  loathe fact that, the west bound  train on the Crow's Nest line  was soine six hours late, il was  quite late in tho evening, when  the excursionists reached town,  though everybody on board enjoyed tho trip,up the river. . <  Dance at the Opera House.  , On Monday evening, after the  arrival of tho North Star, a  dance was given in the Opera  House, where the excursionists  and_.towns people tripped lhe  light,   fantastic'  until   the "wee  Yeandle, J.

The Rover vein of the Estella  mine  has  been   opened   up   by  The Estella is a Big- Mine With  an  Enormous   Amount   of    Ore  '        Ready for Shipping*.   ,,  On Saturday last t.he Rover  vein was cut by what is known  as the Estella tunnel af a depth  of liOO feet.,"     ' ���".     ,   ~  The- principal, development  work on the'Estella. group has  been the exploiting of the Rover  vein.' The ore is a galena in a  concentrating form. The Rover  tunnel is now in over 1000 feel,  following the wall, the vein having a width of' from \2 to 18  reef.  The Estella tunnel which is iu  l,0;i0 feet, crosses the Rover  tunnel at nearly a right angle,  at a depth of 200 feet below the  level of the Rover tunnel, it is  at this point that, the vein has  been encountered, and found to  have a width of six to eight  feet. The ore is similar in  character to that found in the  Rover tunnel.  An up raise will now be started to meet the upper tunnel,  which when completed will give  natural ventilation to the main  working tunnel, also an enormous extent of ledge matter for  slopping iu both claims. Mr. C.  Hungerford Pollen, F.G.S., the  manager, who is now in England  is expected at Steele during the  current month. In a. recent in  terview Mr. Pollen stated that  he expected to haw an air compressor installed, and drills  working before the. middle of  the summer, and the present  force considerably enlarged.  The concentration plant lately  purchased by the company will  be brought in as soon,as the  necessary means of transportation is provided. Application  has beenmade for a, mill site on  Tracy creek.  . Before the close, of the present  year we may expect the.

The excursionists from Elko  proved no wallfio.wers and just  got right in and kept , the tladies  busy tripping the light fantastic  -without intermission until  supper, which was welcomed by  all. After supper, ,the dance  was on once more, aiid the sun  was creeping over the mountain  tops \yhen the weary dancers  concluded it was  time  to  bring  i r>i v  the evening entertainment, to a  close." ..���',.  The dance was a complete  success and the, Elko excursionists were loud-ju',their compliments lhat were ��� accorded' to  those in charge. The niusic  was good and would have done  credit to a much larger city than  Steele.  Cranbrook vs. Elko.  The Cranbrook base ball team  won the base ball game at Steele  on Tuesday defeating the Elko  team by a score of 2'6 to :!0.  McMillan pitched and Bertram  caught for the Cranbrook team,1  Lamphier and Wilmot occupied  the same positions on the Elko  team.  The summary of the game is  as follows: o  Going; to Purchase.  , Mr. Simon of Victoria is looking for a large tract, of land near  Fort Steele upon which he iu-  tends placing his sons, who will  engage in mixed farming and  fruit raising.

The batting  of the Elko learn at times was  good, and some long drives were  made. The feature of fhe game  was two home runs made by  Wilmot, which brought in two  men each time. One of the particular features of the contest  was the rooting and cheering  given the teams by their adherents. The game, though  high scores wore made, was a  good exhibition of amateur  base ball, and up lo the last,  inning both teams had an even  chance of success,  --immediately after the game  was over tlio Elko team boarded  the steamer North Star; which  was waiting to take the excursionists on the return trip to  Wardner, and the Cranbrook  team later on returned to Cran  brook.

In  two days the sum of ij'aOO was  contributed. The event will be  properly advertised, ,. the programme ' will include horse  racing, foot, races, ball, game,  foot ball," tug of war and a shooting tournament, it will beGseen  that a good day's amusement has  been provided, ft is to be hoped  that there will be a large  influx  of   visitors  o  towns.  from '  neighboring  IN   THE   LOCAL   HOUSE.

Tlie Coal Creek Mines.
Tho Coal Creek mines are  situated   about   six   niilos from l he
town of Pei-nie with which   they
are connected by a spur of   railway   running   from   the   Crow's
Nest   Branch   of   Hie   Canadian
. Pacific railway.   There aro three
workable seams here which give
employment to about one  thous
and men, and  in   addition   about
two hurt'drd'd men are'engaged in
a ad   about    the   colce   ovens   in
Pernio.    Coal creelc va I ley is al
most shut inb'y* flie surrounding
mountains, and it is  late   in   the
morning  when   the  sun.i.s soon,
and   early   in   tho evening.when
lie drops behind lhe  loi'ty mountains on tho west.
'■   IX  Till';   MliVKS.
'The mines are worked from
three levels. The best and most
modern system of ventilation is
by tho fun which exhausts tlie
i'oul' air  and creates, a, vacuum
, into which the,pure air enters.
' Tho fan used at Coal creek i.s   of
: tho usual description,, the motive
power steam, the ventilation in
the face of l.ho^niinels.^and ends
i.s affected by means of  brattices
14       ,     ,
or temporary-partitions' of thin
boards or canvas placed midway
in thc'drift and extending to
within a few "feet of Ihe face in
/.which ' the men 'are a-l. work.
Railway tracks'and truck's were
much in,; evidence 'within the
mine: the motive power electricity ' is ' used in the main
tunnels, but in lhe drifts horses
arc utilized. , Not all the coal is
taken out, of thc mine as development proceeds, more than half
being left in place at 'many
points serving as naturat .pillars,
to the roof. ,Tho main tunnels
are lighted by electric incaudos-
ent lamps. ■ *   - '        _j-'   '
The buildi.i.-'is al the mine include - fifteen^ double-story
coltnges accommodating ^(1 to, "n
families The.various offices arc
both,commodious and,substanl ini
and include the ' following. 1 wo
fan and on'gme houses, locomotive sheds,- carpenter's 'shop,
warehouse, stables:- food'.sheds,
