'    '   "'  It is said that there is a movement on foot for the''erection of  a smelter in this district.   ��  A large number of prospectors  are in the hills, and new discoveries are expected daily.  Thirty thousand'' tons of lead  ore were shipped from the mines  ot' Slocan and South East Kootenay during the first six months  of this year.  In all parts of the Tracy camp  development of mineral claims  are iii full swing.

The important discovery of  large bodies of iron ore in tho  Eort Steele district continues to  command the attention of mining men all over the Province.  Iu the soulh eastern portion  of the P'ort. Steele district, there  exists oil fields that arc as extensive as any on the continent.  It, is understood that the  Cioldon Irive group oHnines 0:1  Wild Horse creek will start up  in the near future.  The prospects oi' the Dupont  group of mines are said to be  encouraging.

From Our Oun C'lMTtiip'omleiii.  Phillipps. July 2b.'��� Construction is now well, under way on  the Jennings-Elko branch ,of the  Great Northern Railway. The  principal camp is at Grave creek  and the contractors have opened  a large general merchandise  store at that point which is'doing business with all comers. Jt  is rumored that this is to be the  point of junction of the cut-off  on the main line between Kalis-  poll and Jennings.  ' ,Thc steamers North Star .and  J. D. Farrell are making regular  trips as far north ��� as White's  Landing, carrying supplies for  the di.l'orcul caihps along the  river.  -  Captain   Armstrong , of    the  North   .Star    visited , Phillipps  < . t ... f        i.  during the past week and ho re-'  ports that, tho boats- will ..run  across ihd.boundary Jine as far  north as'the Crow's ,Ncst "Landing- " . , '  ,'iMi". Hoover, U. S., Customs  officer.' from Jennings, visited  Phillipps last Sunday. It is  probable that he will be stationed near the line after the railway  is constructed, and that he will  have two assistants to look after  Uncle Sam's interests.'  The people of Tobacco Plains  are looking for a" boom, and expect that there'will be quite a  town in the vicinity, probably alf  the boundary line, or at ��� the  junction of the Elko line with  the main line at or near Grave  creek. ^  A petition for a liquor license,  for a." hotel near the Elk River  crossing was being circulated  during the week by Harvey  Eitzsimons, which received  quite a number of signatures, [t  is likely that, the' crossing will  bo a lively point during construction and good accommodations should be provided for  travellers.  Crow's Nest Landing will also  be a good point, and it is  rumored that a license has booh  or will be granted for a hotel at  this place.  Mr. Brandenburg who has  charge of the produce on the  Plains for the contractors is  kept a hustling handing out  truck for consumption.  The haying is now in full  swing and the crops appear to  be first class in every respect,  other crops also are looking fine.  Ovor   25,000   Tons of   Ore, Blocked  ' Out, Delayed for Lack ot        __,,  Transportation.  There is now no possibility of  a doubt but, that (he Estella will  bo one of the largest producing  mines in lhe Fnr\ Steele district,  and that, lack of transportation  is what is holding back* lhco'property a.s there is a large ainonnr.  of ore blocked out.  ' Work has been chielly confined  to tho Estella and Rover claims.  On the Estella there is a quart/  vein some four feet in width  dipping into the mountain, on  which a tunnel has been drove  which is,, now iu some HOO feet.  In this funnel,' there is a considerable amount ofvgray copper  with copper carbonates and some  galena. This tunnel when completed to a distance, of ten or  eleven hundred feet will tap the  big galena lead at a depth of  GOO feet."    '       , *  ,. The Rover or No. 29 tunnel' is  in k'00 feet, following iy wall the  entire distance. At several  points the ledge has been crosscut showing a width of about 12  feet, the ore isa galena carrying  fair values in silver. , When the  Estella tunnel is' completed, an  upraise of 1(50 feet will be made  to the Estella tunnel, thus furnishing ventilation, and sloping  facilities on at least..five ' levels.  It is estimated that there is not  less than _.o,'000 tons of concentrating ore ready .for stoping.  On .,lhe Estella dump there is a  considerable quantity of copper  ore, on-the-Rover dump a conservative estimate places the  amount of ore at'not? less than  1000 tons. , ,  : ��� The owners , arc . perfectly  satisfied with the conditions' at  the mine, |but, shipping wil'J not  commence until the- necessary  means of transportation is'  afforded.       , ���  inonls- made so thai - when lhe  mill is again started its output  will be increased.  It is said that after certain repairs in the mine and at the mill  are completed, operations will  be resumed.  AURORA.  O. S.

Moyie, .J���uly i?:].--���Tho ��� future  of Moyie as a great mining camp  depends upon the constant working of the big mines in that  vicinity, yet the- growth of the  town, and the development of  the, mines has been retarded by  the conditions of the lead market  though there has never been  any question as to the quality or  quantity of ore, in and around  the town of Moyie. It is con  coded that nothing but the building of a smelter and the home  treatment of ore, will enable the  big mines to keep up a large and  constant output.  ST.   RUGENE.  A small force is, still at., work  in' the mine, the concentrator  was closed down during last  week, but was started up .on  Saturday, run three days, and  again closed down, and as the.  men'have all been laid off, it  looks as if the shut down .would  continue for some time.  The compressor is still in operation, and a number of drills  at work in the mine.  District Notes. . '  The Fort Steele mining district will not entirely depend  upon its gold, '.silver," load,  copper and coal products.  Enough is know to state that the  supply of iron ore in the district  is practially inexhaustible.  A section of the Fort Steele  district that is believed lo be  rich in mineral resources is that  portion of the main range of the  Rockies between' Elk river and  Sheep creek.  Though it has been"7 generally  understood from the time of the  tirst exploration, that the mountain ranges of the district were  rich in minerals, it has been only  during the past' two years that  systematic and persistent devel  opment and prospecting has been  performed.  Fort Steele Division.  The Fort Steele mining  division comprises the drainage  area of the Kootenay river and  its tributaries south of Findley  creek, and occupies the extreme  south eastern portion of the  province. On the east it, is  bounded by the watershed of tho  Rocky mountains and by the  North-West Territory of Alberta  on the south by the United  States boundary line: to the  west by West Kootenay,' and  northward by the height of land  forming the watershed of the  streams flowing into the Kootenay river d south of Findley  creek. Approximately 80 miles  in width and the same in length,  it has a total area, of between  (i,000 and 7,000 square miles. |  MARTIN   CLAIM.

Some tine samples of iron ore  was brought in from the Iron  Mountain group of minus, situate  on.frqn creek a tributary of Bull  river. The preliminary work  already done on these claims has  proved that there undoubtedly  is a large body of iron ore.  There are three distinct ledges  or beds of iron which traverse  the claims., The first ledge uncovered was over iiO feet 'in  width, and since then two other  large'ledges has been discovered  oue.-TiO and the other 2."> feet,  wide, i. The ledges have 'been  traced for a considerable distance.

There are just as good  prospects and   mines  in   the   main  range of  the  Rockies as there  ever were in the Selkirk or   any  other mountain range.     This  is  the general verdict of the many  mining    men    and   prospectors  who have prospected and located  mines in the Rockies.    They aro  convinced that ore is here and in  large quantities, and nothing but  capital to develop our mines and  adequate  means of   transportation is needed to make tho mines  situated in tho   Rockies   producing and paying mines.

All's well in the World."  ,    So wrote   tlio   poet,   anil   so  think many devout souls.     But  so��.ie*ofus are lemptod to  think  that God is not "in His Heaven"  and  that all   is not "well in the  world".    , There    are    frightful  conditions ol'  life  and   tragical  occurrences Unit counlerfeil 'the  conviction that a wise  and   holy  God overrules  all.     Many   men  "'  have denied God altogether, and  lived  and  died   in skepticism of  the'Eternal.    'Other   men   are  agnostics and   say   they cannot  tell whether there be a  God  or  no.    They  have  been.''confused  �� by the  conflicting  testimony of  history and science and religion,  and have settled down  to   the  conviction  tli'al,   if there   be   a  '    God, it.is useless to try to know  Him.    Many of these are honest;  doubters;   but there  are others  who live as if there were no God  simply because such  a state of  .things   is    congenial   to   them'.'  With them ','The wish   is  father  to the'thought".    Such are   not  true men and are sinning  away  the possibility of ever becoming  such. -       ���' i '  But how may 1, a true and*unquestioning man, know whether  these spiritual, things, are so"-  Over and over 'again' this  a Lies! ion is forced upoii a man. J  say a man, for many so called  ' men never rise 'high enough  above tho animalr to, ask such a  question. How may L, a thinking, intelligence with aspirations  .after better-things, ' know that  God is? ,0   '   ,   ,  ' Does it not" seem that a clue  lies right here? 'Heed God when  ., ho 'speaks to���yon.~ -"Ho .spoke  'loudly to many of us last. week.  Think now. did ho not? Were  you not moved to1-face "many  questions? Life ��� and ' death  problems they were. .. Ho said,to  you. '"For what is your life? Lt  is even a vapor, that appeareth  for a little" and then vanisheth  away." '  To some of us there came a  'different speech, arid to some it  brought confusion and suggestions hard to interpret: but the  important thing is to feel assured  that it was God who spoke. Nor  is it easy, for anyone to put that  thought away, it came with conviction, and had we not forcibly  ejectedjt had remained with us  to stay us in our lives. What  there was in the message difficult  to understand. He had made  plain. If you really wish to  'know God, you must follow out  this suggestion." Christ said:  "He that willoth to do my will  shall know of the doctrine,  whether it be of God"'. There  is a way to know the truth and a  way to be free from doubt, and  he who wills lo know shall know  "Aud ye shall know the trutR  and the truth shall make' you  free".  '   NOTICE.
