Tt���is said that��the French syndicate represented by E.

So large is  the vein that it is impossible to  determine its extent until it is  more thoroughly developed, yet  it is shipping large quantities of  ore. .  Work has commenced on  several well known properties  on Perry creek.  The Perry creek placers will  soon receive considerable attention.  The success of the American  mining speculator is proverbial.  He'keeps his eyes wide'open,  spots the needy prospector, and  follows in the wake of the good,  anil gets in on Ihe ground lloor  of the best prospects located.  Considoring'lhe amount of development work done in this district, it is safe to say that no  section of British Columbia, give  such promises of high grade oro  as the Fort Steele district.  It is a fortunate thing i'or this  district, that a number of strong  companies aro securing properties in this section.  On  the  Estella   group   much  development work has been done  '.'the  total  development   consists  of  1400 feet of tunnels and 200  feet of shafts. .',   ������������  The Bill Nye has over 100 feet  of tunnel, besides several open,  rock cuts.      ;  Big Chief developments consists of over ;i00 feet of tunnels  and drifts. ��� '''���    y, , y    j;  British Col u m bi a s h o u 1 d be  the source of the silver-lead industry,' ' and   its    refining,   the  manufactured   lead   exported   lo  China and eastern Asia..

Partial  MOYIE NEWS.  of   the  St.  MINING DEVELOPMENT.  In   South   East    Kootenay.--Transportation for Ore Wanted.  Since the. golden' days->of   1.S04  there   has   been   more,. or   less  attention   paid   to   South   Fast  Kootenay, during the early days  more to placer than   quartz.      It  i.s    only    a    short     time   comparatively,   since 'any attention  was   paid,to   quartz  mining but,  now the time lias  arrived,, when  to the quartz miner; must South  East    Kootenay     look    for   its  wealth.    The other resources of  the Kootenay valley are limited,  and'the&mines must be developed  to  a   point  of producing.  "And  wheirit is considered that' there  are mines on the east side of (he  Kootenay  river upon   which   a  vast amount of work  has boon  done,'and which can  be  said  to  be'in si position lo-ship  orotund  that is only a q'uestion of  trans-  portation, when those mines will  btb. placed-  upon    the   list   of  shipping inines. ; i        '<  It is apparent from tho work-  that has beeu done, aiid that a  number of, properties" aro in 'a  condition to ship ore, the question of railwsiy transportation is  almost as vital as the development of claims.'. Alining properties must be systematically developed in orefer to bring them  up to a point of being mined i'or  profit, after reaching such aeon-,  dition, the question of transportation is the sole factor in the  rapid development of the district.  .

Disappearance of Mr. Charles Clark.  The toAvn has "this  week been  thrown ,into  a' fever of excitement by  the disappearance   of  Mi-.   Charles   Clark,   for   many  years Collector of Customs.   For  a month or two. past ,Mr.   Clark-  has  been  suffering   from  a con  dition of nervous prostration accompanied     by      neurasthorine  symptoms and  some   insomnia.'  On Wednesday forenoon  lasl   he  left,  the 'house   unnoticed,   and  since, then   his  movements can  "only  be  Avith  great uncertainty  traced.     The   fear.   howeA'er, is  that in   a lemporary aberration  of  mind   he   may   have   slipped  into,,the i'i ver and beeu drowned.  There Avas nothing  whatever  iu  Mr. Clark's domestic financial or  ofiieial   relations ** to give cause  lor him doing an injury  to  himself:   but  if this  has been the  case it could only haVe been in a  moment of temporary aberration  which  deprived   him  of  all   responsibility for his actions.

Nothing   is   politically   right  that i.s morally -wrong.  Tho world has only begun lo  soo that no country is groat and  no cause just thai does not help  on tho world's happiness and tho  world's good.  Tho true tost of civilization is,  noi iho census, noi' tho size of  cities, nor the crops���no, hut the  kind ol" mail tlie country turns  out.  History tells us that Chiribaldi  relinquished the conif'orls'oj   his  home at Caprora for some years,  to light the battles of  his   king.  The   magic   of   his   name,  ,the  lire of "his patriotism, his genius  for command,   wrought   marvels  J'or  his   country.      lie refused a  reward,   but   tlie   grateful   king  prepared   ac surprise   for,   him.  AVhen he approached   his  home,  he, saw   ho 'object that he could  recognize.        T-lis  ' rough" and  .tangled farm'had been  changed  as if'by enchantment into elegant  grounds,    with    roads, '  paths,  lawn's,   gardens,   shrubbery and  avenues.    His cottage was gone,  and   in   its  place stood   a villa,  replete with   every  convenience  .within   and  .without.        As   he  walked   I'rom   room'   to    room,  wondering   what  magician 'had  worked this  transformation,   he  saw  a  full   length   portrait   of  King   Victor. Emmanuel,  which  ��� explained ���' the r   mystery.,     If  Christian   mon   were  'generally  agreed   upon   the sacrificing  of  a their    personal    comfort'    that  righteousness and  purity   might  prevail in the land^ would   thoy  not    Iind,   sooner    or   later,   a  similar  transformation   in   iheir  ��� own   surroundings,   and   better  than all else, would thoy not find  revealed   in1 the  lives   of   their  dear ones, the likeness' of  th'eir  Victor .King, Emmanuel?  > As silently as the cycles'of the  seasons move, and as resist lessly  tho laws of cause and effect worlc  out for every godless man' "and  every godless land the fearful  judgment of divine retribution.
