Conducted under the nuspices oi.tlie  Fort Stoolo  Miners'   Association.  .IAS.  .AllUiAW.  II.   W. KoSS. Sec.  issued the circular seems 1o,have  Ibeeii  to ?bring pressure to bear  upon the government to remove  |.the i'per cenl tax   on  output of  mines, aud emiql ;t law giving  I crown grants'to placer properties  Southeast  Kootenay as a  Smelting Center.    ���  Pew mining section's enjoy the  advantages and opportunities  I'oi^suceessful smelter operations  as does Southeast Koolenay.  Successful ore- reduction must  have   cheap   I'uol   and    such   ;t  variety of ores as to be self-fluxing: This is why largo reduction  'works   have   in   many   instances  .i,nni,��-nEioi-iiialiiiil :it,���noints���re--  mole from mines. A- groat  variety of ores are needed to insure fluxing .charges containing values. These, are seldom  found iii one locality, and in  most instances ores wore  drawn  from groat distances to smelters  near the supply of fuel.  A few years ago the people of  Rutlo hailed with delight fhe advent of the 'Northern Pacific  railroad because they could ship  ' lite ores of their mines to seaboard and thence to Swansea  Wales. The Coour d'Alcnes today, by reason of-having but  one class'of ore, ship their product to Omaha. Denver and  points ' east   ,of    the   Missouri  river.  liy ihe,development of coal in  Monlana'the smelting situation  has (-hanged and great/ prosperity to' the mining industry has  come as a    ,��� �� - .  ,, Until" recent years tho charges  for smelting varied from Si0.00  to &KUI0 per ton. Coupled to  this were 'transportation charges  of an ecpial amount. Those penalties naturally rendered unprofitable anything but the highest  grade ores.  In'this rospect the Kootenays  enjoy unusual advantages.  Ores are reduced, at less cost  in West Kootenay than any  other place in the world: in some  instances as low "as ��:;..">U per Ion  Several condition.-- conlributC'to  this result, but to the cheapness  of-colco may be given the greatest credit.  The largest item of cost, however, is the transport til ion of  coke.' This coke is shipped from  East Kootenay, and with tho  "cost of transportation oliminatcd  and other conditions being c<|nal  it is plain thai Southeast Kootenay offers an inviting Held for  the successful , opcralion of  smelters and ore-redact ion  works. In' I ho midst of the  metal mines is the largest area  of tho best coking coal in the  world: and, as to the other conditions., they are all that, can be  desired. In the matter of Muxes  they are all- at hand. In most  instances lliey are contained in  fhe ores, and where not, they  exist in abundance in tho locality  Climate and walerpower are  going to waste, whose use some  day will work marvels iu our  midst. These latent resources  only need the touch of the industrial genius .to transform  them into sources of great  wealth.  Smelting as   a Business.  No business has paid Ihe   promts  on   the   capital   invested -as  has the business of smelting.  Tlie Boston and . Colorado  Smelting Company, of Argo,  noar Denver, Col.; started with  a small capital a few years ago,  and has paid- since then,  dividends on $1,250,000.    I  The. Grant .-Smelting .Company  commenced    with   a-capital    of  Si00,0011,   and   it   is  now paying  dividends on $:',,000,o0().  The    Kansas    City   Smelting  Company   commenced   a  comparatively small capital, and  it   is   paying    dividends    upon,  several millions of stock. ,  About fifteen other such establishments have grown up in  the w'ost, in the last twenty years  and have been making money at  an iinusual rate.  The reason for this is not far  to find. A custom' smelter bears  fhe same relation to the mining  commnnity'that a well-conducted  bank does to the business of'a  town; except, perhaps, the  public knows less of the secrets  of its vast profits. It is the mineral broker through which the  wealth of the mines, "pass, at  whatever margin il wishes'to  exact. In many instances only  enough has been left the miner  to allow him to work his mine.  Smelting companies that do a  strictly custom business show  unquestionably, for the amount  invested; thor largest profits of  any .industry in America. There  are instances of capital iiivosted_  in- smelting companies being"  turned fi\;e times in one year,  and each iiine ��� the: margin has  boon twenty per centP of the  amount handled.        .   '    '< :  .A"smelter assumes no risk. It  simply buys ores at a greatly reduced value, then attaches all  sorls of penalties for smelting: deducting for moisture,- assumed loss of values in reduction,1 discounts and commissions  for marketing bullion etc. Yet,  notwithstanding all those drawbacks the mining industry has  grown out of all proportion to  sin ell ing. This i.s especially  the case in localities not  favorably situated for the operation of smelters. Tho essential  qualities for a smelter situation,  are cheap fuel, diversied char-  actors of ore and diverging lines  of railroads.  These things aro rapidly assuming shape in Southeast  Koolcnav.  Industrial Notes.  Rcoenlly a twenty-four dollar  nugget was picked up in , the  sluice-box of the Thompson  shaft on- Perry creek.  The Kootenay, Placer Mining  Company on Perry creek, has  purchased .from Nils l-Janson a  sawmill to be set up near its  property, to equip the mine with  Humes and buildings. The mill  was hauled to the mine during  the week. -  , Oplion to  purchase  has  been  DISTRICT   NEWS   NOTES.

The .advance iu the price of  cad is put ting a new aspect upon'  the mining' sit tuition, which is  likely io stimulate all branches  of the industry, but if is probable tint it will be some time bo-  fore ii��}jMl'eet will be felt. Some  time ago the management of the  St. Eugene stated that it would  not resume operations until lead,  reached \3 pounds. This does  not "iii^an.    however,    that,   the  government be urged to resist to  the inmost ihe said claims of  C.P.R. in the'Elk River valley.

March I ..���Parliament opened this' afternoon  with the' usual, ceremonies. The  session promises to be a long  and busy one. In the first place  the government has a long and  important, bill of fare for presentation and in addition to this a  large number of public and  private bills are to bo introduced  Railway legislation, it is expected, will be,the question of paramount importance, 'and the  struggle between the Trans-Canada and fhe Grand ��� Trunk railways will be watched with interest.

They already' have a charter and  added to this, have .the support  of many of Sir Wilfrid Lauricr-'s  followers from Quebec.  Tlie revision bf fhe tariff is another1 matter that will demand  much attention. Tho deputation  that will be present from all  parts of the Dominion will, keep  fhe grass on Parliament hill well  worn, for the indications, are  that the session will extend far  into the summer.  ' The redistribution bill will  also bo disposed of, and this requires much attention, for every  member of the _00 constituencies  in Canada that will be affected  will have something to say about  tho measure. Among the other  important government measures  will be a .bill providing for a  railway commission, and a bill  providing for the settlement of  sfr kes by arbitration. ,The  Alaska boundary affair will also  be'one of the important matters  of discussion.
