Some of the details  will be made1 known later  Strangers visiting Fort Steele  go away wilh the'impression that  tlio mines in our vicinity must of  necessity make our town one oi  great importance.  ,A crown grant is being applied  for by the owners "of the Big  Chief mine.   ' "   ,  Reports from , the different  mining sections are to the etl'ecjL  that there is an unusual amount  of development work being done  In fact, never in the history of  the district has there been such  activity. , .

An English court, recently re-  .   quired     to' - define    the-'   word  '���mineral"  held" that,   the   word  ���   "includes every substance   that  d, can be got from, underneath   the  -    surface of the earth-for the. purpose of profit".,  ,, Ail-umber 61"people have been  .    looking    over   the  'mineral , ro-  = sources,   and , they   all 'express  .  surprise at the showings on   the  claims  in   the ^neighborhood  of  Port Steele. '  .  f "A  large deposit of,coal  has  been discovered on the east  side  of   the   Kootenay    river    from  ' ' Thunder Hill.    The coal is   said  lo be of good quality.  It is no idle boast to  say  that  the mines in the.vicinity of Fort.  Steele were never  more llafter-  "ing.  Before another year rolls by  the Kooienay Central Railway  will have been constructed lo  Fort Steele, aud there will be a,  number of shipping mines added  lo the list of producing mines of  the district. ,  The man who slays with the  Fort Steele district will be  strictly in it.  There is more inquiry for mining property in South Wast  Kootenay just at. present Ihan  ever before. We can. safely  count on a. prosperous year.  Skookum Chuck  is  si, district  which,   unless   indications   fail,  promises fo be one  of   the  most  iinporliinf mining sections tribu  tary to Fori Steele.  South Kast Kootenay wil! produce n. vast, amount of ore this  year. , The tonnage will probably be as great as from any  other section of the Province.  Development work on the  Martin claim is progressing.  The Transvaal gold mines will  have lo pay $">(>,000,000, half of  the cost of the Boer wiir.  It is certain that there are few  districts in.'this Province offer-,  ing greater inducements to capital, "than the Perry and Wild  Horse creek pincers;.  The Bank's Bro's are taking  out some rich 'looking, gold  quarto    from     the   Dardanelles  raised lo $(i,0()0,()(���() and the taxes  will be $2-10,000. - Even1 this assessment, is fully 10 times less  than the real value of the pro-"  perty!  Nothing will more fully conserve the interests of fhe mining  industry than the application .of  correct business inelhods in securing capital for invesiihunt.  The mining outlook :il -Fori  Steele is very bright.  Chicago capitalists.arc expected at Fort. Steele, in the near  future. They ''will inspect the  Perry creek placer minus.  The most valuable copper ore  is red oxide (cuprite) it generally  carries gold and silver.

If all reports are true the Wild  Horse creek district bids fair to  be one of the most important  sections of the Fort Steele mining division.

There  has  been a great amount of development work done in the district, enough to  satisfy  capital  and promoters that with facilities  for   marketing   ore.   that    thi.s  section of the pi-ovince  will become a large and constant producer.     The fact that this district has an abundance of mineral,   many mines that are actually  producing  and   shipping   large  quantities  of ore,   and  a   large  number  that  are   under various  stages   of   actual  development.  also   that   it   is    practically    a  virgin  field  with great possibilities, has become known' all over  the   world.       These   facts,   together with the knowledge  that  railway communications arc to  be extended  to Fori Steele this  year,   and   possibly  lo   Windermere,   ha.s  caused   mining   pro  moters and capitalists to look to  this   district   for    mining    properties.  f. X <  With large bodies of ore. copper, gold, silver and lead veins  widening out, development work-  progressing rapidly, a bright  prospectof a railway this year,  Fort Stcelo can confidently  await still further development  and    the   approach     of     future  high in the world's roll of honor and  fame, has been published by the Chicago.

THE PROSPECTOR,  PORT STEELE, B. 0., JUNE 22. 1901.  ��he U$X0&pi>��t0x.  SATURDAY, JUN'E ��>, 1901.  A Wana Welcome.  Skagway heralded Uie arrival  of the Canadian Paciiic Navigation Company's steamship  Islander in its port on her lirst  ,_ trip by tlie following glowing  report, which appeared on tlie  front page of tlie '��� Daily Alas-  lean:"  ���'Sunday afternoon half of the  population ol Skagway accepted  the cordial invitation of Captain  .Foot  to inspect  the   steamship  Islander.       Captain    Poot   was  personally in charge and  he was  very solicitous to see that every  body  had  a  chance  to  see the  tine,ship and partake of the good  things. He was most ably assisted by Agent Dunn, Mr.   Humphrey and  every  member  of  ihe  crew.     They   were  all   just as  polite  and  attentive as  though  those aboard had paid their hard  cash to be taken care of.  [t would be difficult to give an  accurate    description     of     the  vessel   and    her    appointments  without going into the minutest  details.     The  ship's exlerior i��  well remembered by many Skag-  wayans,    but   the .interior   has  been so completely changed that  it was absolutely unrecognisable  yesterday.       The    iittings   are  most elaborate  and   the  decorations  arc all  of artistic merit  -and , present/a harmony of view  which.is indescribably grand.  The  dining saloon -is   exceptionally large for a  ship  of  the  proportions of the Islander.    Its  finish could scarcely be liner,   it  would  seem.     The. furnishings  of the ladies' cabin, the lounging  roonrand other parts are of  the  finest.     One 'of  the  attractions  which   is always  looked  for by  .... the sea traveller  is a chance to  ��� promenade. Tho     Islander's  cabin is so located that a splen-  0 did walk can be had around it.  But it <>is  in  the'state rooms  J     where the well being of the pas-  seuger       has    been     zealously  guarded.      Every , arrangement  and detail which  could  possibly  contribute   to   the comfort has  beent   provided.       Prom   main  truck  to. kelson,   from   stem to  stern the ship  is  kept scrupulously clean.     As'many wended  their way up town after viewing  the vessel and enjoying the hospitality   of   Captain   Poot they  were constrained to say she was  the finest  vessel with the most  popular skipper on the'run.  On the way -up there were  many musicians ou board and the  last, night out a concert was  given, at which T. R. Humphrey  presided.  The Test of Sincerity.  Every man fools   instinctively  that'all the beautiful  sentiments  in the world weigh less than one  single lovoly action:    ancl   that  while tenderness of  feeling and  susceptibility "of generous emotions are accidents of  life,   permanent goodness is an   achievement and   a quality of tho life.  ''Pino words," says one   homely  old   proverb,    "butter   no   parsnips";   and  if  the question  be  how  to  render those vegetables  palatable,- an   ounce   of   butter  would be  worth   more   than all  the orations of Cicero.  The conclusive evidence of a  man's sincerity is that he gives  hi msolf for a principle. Words,  money, all things else, are comparatively' easy to give away:  but when a man makes a gift of  Jiis daily life and practice, it is  plain that the truth, whatever it  may be, has taken possession of  him. Prom that sincerity his  words gain the force and pertinency of deeds, and his money is  no longer the pale drudge 'twixt  man and man, but, by a beautiful  magic, what erewhile bore the  image and superscription of God  NOTICE.
