Thomas, manager of the  Golden Five group of mines,  was in town ou Monday and furnished Tin-; Pkospkctou with  the following information relative to the property:  ''Work was resumed last summer and has been continued during the winter with <i small  force. The new tunnel has been  driven on a cross vein to tap the  main vein upon which a shaft  was sunk several years ago. In  running this  tunnel   a  body  of  mill-  ore on these claims is fre<  ing. i  VJ KINO   A.N'I)   UK1CSKNT.  These claims at present show  but' little work, they were slightly developed last fall. The showing is an excellent one. The  chiini apparently takes one of  the leads of the Estella, group!'  WASA.  - Not far distant on Wasa creek  is tho Wasa belonging' to N.  Hanson/ This claim has been  considerably   developed   in   the  ore  cutting  the  formation "has   l)as1' and the  work  wil1 -b��   re-  been  followed on the   hanging  -wall, varying iu width from   six  inches to one foot. Mr. Thomas  is of the opinion'that in 25 feet  he,will tap the main ledge, which  will give a depth of 100 feet; at  t.his point lie expects to find at  least four feet of free milling  orje. He will drift on the vein to  a- point under the shaft and then  upraise to connect., The vein  upon which he is now working  increases in width as the work  progresses.  The old workings'on the shaft  in the main ledge also increases  in1 width, the ore shoot on the  surface being, only one foot in  width, and at fifty feet it is r2J,  feel. wide. The ore from the  tunnel and shaft will average in  value :fvlf> to the ton.  A few years ago; the property  attracted1 considerable attention,  biii"j"or reasons not known work  was discontinued,' and, but a  small amount . of development  was done at intervals'd'uring that  time. ' '.<���'���      ��� '      ''   '  There is  on    the  sumed in a short time,  an  excellent   showing  property. , ,  ,  MINN J K  M.   AND  TJOKlt  This is another promising  property which bids 'fair with  further development to make a  mine of large proportions.' "Work  has been suspended during the  winter but will be resumed in a  short time.  ;       The Bull Rive:- Country.  The   exploration   of   the   Old  Abe and Chickamon Stone mines  have culled attention of the mining men and pros]lectors to Hull  River, as being a.good   field   for  exploitation, a number of claims  have been located,   and  the   result of  some  preliminary  work-  has been most satisfactory.   The  claims are not far from the  railway, and if there is ever a smelter  erected   in   the  district,   the  properties on tlie east side of the  river  are   most   advantageously  situated.  feet of work done on the ground.  The group consists of , four  claim.-, and the lead has been  traced through three of them.  The opinion of those who are  familiar with the property is  that it is one of great promise  and will yet be heard from.  LATEST   TELEGRAPHIC    NEWS.  Old Abe.  O  In the crosscut of the Old Abe  theie is five,feet of ore of excep:  tioual'good giade. Mr. Harp  took some of it to Rossland with  him. The 'result of an assay  was 17% copper, or a total in ail  values of #14.' ,  v.i  The Sullivan Mines.  There is a decided'increase   in  ihe stock of the Sullivan' mines.  This is no more than was expected t by ' those'familiar   with   the  jjroper.ty,    the    only    cause'   of  suprise  is   that  it continued 'at  such a low figure so long.     The  mine,must soon  rank   with .the  North Star, as a mineral producer.'   Every day adds to the value  of the property.    In,a short time  shipments   will   commence   and  'then those who failed to take advantage of the low price at which  it. has been ruling will regret it.  There is  bo  more  promising  a  mine in the Province.        '   ,  The Big- Dipper.  The Big Dipper group of  mines on Sullivan Hill is being  extensively developed under the  management of N. 0. McKinstry.  So far- as can be learned there is  plenty of galena in the workings  although it is noL in place, there is  every indication that the property will turn-out well. "A Spokane syndicate owns the property. The lloat one the surface  of the Big Dipper gave' some  wonderful assays, going as .high  as one hundred ounces in silver  and 50 per cent lead.  Pleased With the, Old Abe.  Wm.' Harp of Rossland paid a  visit tb the Old Abe on Saturday  last. He expressed himself- as  being much pleased with the appearance of the property, 'in fact  it was much better than had  been represented. Mr. Harp will  pay Fort Steele another visit', in  the course of a few weeks.  Will Develop the Dibble.  It is learned that it is the intention . of the owners of the  Dibble group of mines, to commence extensive development on  the property this summer. The  Dibble, is one of, the group of  mines which,'first attracted attention to the ' quartz leads of  this section. , There are several  other claims in the vicinity of  the Dibble group which will be  further exploited during the  com inn- season.  \  Mining- Activity- on Tracy and Lewis  Creelis.  As spring advances work in  the'mines in the vicinity of Fort  Steele is going gaily on. From  all of the camps there arrives  word of increased activity.  OX   TRAUY   (JKKlSrC.  The Tra'cy Creek Mining Company ' operating   the   John    L.  group,     are'   developing    their  properly   with   a   small    force,  they are much encouraged   with  the   showing   made  during  the  winter.    The incline  is   now   in  100 feet and cross-cutting   under  the big dyke has commenced. At  this point the ledge is forty feet  wide, showing values across the  vein.    Ah tho  work  progresses  the force will be increased'.   The  owners are of  the   opinion   that  they have  a   property   of  more  than ordinary merit.  THE   1IO.VTAXA.  The owners of the Montana  have great faiUi in their property. The shaft is now down  J00 feet with good ore in the  bottom.  Mr. Olsen has finished a contract, and contracts are to be let  for still further development.  OKKUON   AXD  MONTAXA.,  These claims owned by .J. p.  Larson and Don McKay are lo-  ^ carted on Lewis creek. There  are.four men at present employed in development. Up to the  present , about $4,000 worth of,  development has been done. The) iug developed with a small force.  - Mining- Notes.  The 13. C. Copper Company  operating tlie Mother Lode mine  near Deadwood, in the Boundary  country have just, signed a contract for the installation of a 40-  drill compressor plant. ���  Under the caption "The Prospector in 1900" the Rossland  miner says: ���    --1   ,,   -  \ "In East Kootenay the Fort  Steele. Windermere and Golden  sections will be over-run by the  fortune hunters. That good luck-  will attend some of them is certain, for these 'portions of East  Kootenay have large veins filled  with high grade ore.  - There is considerable activity  in the Ainsworth camp on Kootenay lake. This is the oldest  camp in West Kootenay. and  there are a number of splendid  mines in that vicinity -  J. E. Saucier is now out of the  active management, of several  companies in East Kootenay represented by him, viz.. Copper  Crown and Excess, known as the  Tlieo Copper & Cold Mines. Ltd.  the St. Mary's and Pay Roll.  This Pubspiwroit is not, informed the reason for the displacement of Mr. Saucier.  Liich ore is being found in  the Siinilkameen country. On  one claim the streak will run  over ��80 to the ton.  Langley Bro's. will start work-  on their claims on Sand creek in  two or three weeks and thor-  ougly develop the property  this  0 . The Montana.  Robert Abernathy and A. Bain  of Spokane, who' arc  interested  in the Montana mines on   Lewis  creek, paid a visit to  the  property ou Saturday last, returning  on Tuesday. ,'They-reiiort,being-  well pleased with the appearance  of'the* claims.    The shaft is now  down 100 feel, and a con tract has  been let to Olseti and  Adams, to  run a tunnel 7:T feet,  'about   150  feet below  the   shaft   opening.  When the ledge   is  encountered  it is the  intention   to  drift  and  make an upraise to connect the  shaft.     In  the  recent 'work  in  the shaft the"work was in galena  for the last forty feet.  To a Prospkgtou representative Mr. Abernathy  stated  that  he is satisfied that they have the  beginning of a mine      Tlie 'last  assay gave  a   value  of ��00 per  ton in all values.     Some copper  has been  encountered  but it  is  not associated with  the  galena.  The ledge upon which the  work-  has been done has been crosscut  for 44 feet and the hanging wall  not yet found.    The pay  streak-  is five feet wide of an  excellent  grade of concentrating ore.  The ledge is an , immense one  and has been traced for a long  distance.  Mining- Notes.  At the* Dupont the work  is still going on with encouraging results. Superintendent Nelson says it is looking  well and improving as the work  progresses.  .7. Y.

Several parties are going out  this spring lo prospect on Skoo-  ktim Chuck.' The ^development  of several claims in that .section  last summer0wi!l cause'considerable al tent ion,to be paid to that  district:  'The tunnel on the Quantrell  is now in 42 feet with an excellent showing of ��''alena'.'  ,' A large amount,of work, is being done on the Sullivan mines.  Shipments from this we'll known  property will commence in a few  weeks.  The dividend of $750,000 declared by the Le Roi mine, with  a balance of half ' .that sum  carried forward to the new year;  is the best advertisement British  Columbia mines could have. ' It  is worth tons <oi' prospectuses. ��� -  It .will'not,be many years before" Siist Kootenay will boast of  a number of dividend paying  mines. Everything points (that  way.    There will be a genuine boom'1  hi East Kootenay mines .before  the season is over.' The , attention of mining men is being attracted to this section, as being  the only unexplored section of  the province.

These areas may  be  described  as  extending  from   the  summit of the main range of the  Rocky Mountains   to   the  coast,  .and from the international boundary to a point extending into the  Arctic  circle,   and    within   this  -vast domain all of ihu  precious  find useful minerals abound. The  country is still in an   undeveloped state, although iu the. past attention has been attracted to the  ijountry chielly from the marvel-:  jous;'placer, deposits in Cariboo  and the Port Steele' district of  South East Kootenay.    It was  only a, few years ago when prospectors started, iuto  the mountains tO:seek for the sources of  ie average Canadian lias a  wlioie.some respect for an industry which can add to the world's  wealth to such im exlent. As a  result tradecouclitions are changed, and instead of holding off the!;  large merchants see the advantage to be derived, and although  lute in tne held they 'are now  seeking'to b.uild up irade in the  Province, particularly ��� in the  mining centers.  This is but ��� one advantage  which" British Columbia niustcle-,  rive from mining. Large towns  ���will spring up wherever'there is  producing mines, this is notable  as at Nelson, Rossland,,, Sandon  and Kaslo.    ,,  Of all the many undeveloped  mineral sections of the Province  South East Eootenay, and particularly that portion known as  the EortrSleele Mining Division,  seems to the uiosl promising-:  there is no part; of British (-Columbia where minerals are' more  generously diffused, nor can any  section show such a variety.'  Wherever prospects have been  opened up the ledges are strong'  and carry good values. In the  main range of mountains extending from the boundary line of  Montana.to Golden and beyond  are found nearly all of the useful minerals'including coal.'' c  il is an attractive country, and  must bring in the capitalists,who  are seeking investment in mines.  The Kootenay valley itself is  eaiiable of supporting a ' large  population The arable laud  within its borders js adapted to  all classes of-food supply, which  in itself is an important factor in  a mining section, but few localities in a mountain region arc so  favored.  This combination of mining  and agriculture is a peculiarly  happy one. , It means that supplies such, as breadstulfs. vegetables, etc;., need not be shipped  iu. as is the case in most mining  camps: and the mining is so far  effected that the supplies mentioned can be delivered at the  various   mines   at   a    minimum  cost.     There is also in tne footer  hills of the mountains, excellent  grazing lands, sufficient for  thousands of heads ol cattle.  This industry is important.  A country possessing the advantages mentioned, cannot fail  to attract mining men who are  looking lo the economical side  of mineral development.  Sou tii East Kootenay and the  section known as the Port Steele  Mining Division, so happily situated, must of necessity become  prominent in the mining world,  and but l'ew years will elapse  when it will take its place among  the great mineral producing sec-  lions of the American continent,  and becomo as well known as  Colorado, Montana or West  Kootenay.  day.      1  willi   the   whole ��� pi  ,'thaf labor   i roubles  i"  ��� lo an end and ih;>i  ;  ' vciir i- new in ->i'_rhi  im   verv   well   pleased  ice.    1   hopej^f,  are  cemiim  prosperous j  for   firii ish  Columbia."

Kiuiber- ' [n a country like the United
States, wherein are large areas
of mineral lands, much of it un-
prospected and a very small frac-,
lion of'it developed: wherein the
people are generally prosperous
and a , large number' of them
wealthy: wherein i mining has
been the beginning or the whole
of many 'fortunes, .and where
those fortunes are still largely
employed,in the business,' constituting a safe precedent: wherein 'method and appliance advance
first, and the technical side of
the industry is represented' by
most-competent, men—it would
seem in such a country,' lhat the
homclv termed business of
'■grubstaking" should be profitable employment for incomes beyond reasonable requirements.
There are men to be picked out
from many, and yet there are
not a few. who possess tho qualifications necessary to successful
prospecting. Hardy, energetic
intelligent and honest should be
the label on a man before he is
entrusted with the funds of his
backers. In addition he should
possess some knowledge of mineralogy, geology and lithology;
but more important .than these
is experience. Assuming that
thi- kind of a man is to be had.
suppose him to be furnished with
a monthly allowance—say. $100
-— sufficient to support and transport Hi in, pay for assays, etc.,
j and assume lhat he will keep
! constantly at work for three
1 years. 'Phis would bo an invest-
jment of *."iG()0—a less amount
! than is usually asked for the
'commonest kind of a prospect.
Jt is almost certain that within
the throe years the man would
find umi  prospects  worth  &J00O
i and one worth $K(5.0()(i.  Of course
the would have io   he  considered
