I'e'linin Nursery <r'n  (!. lOlton   ��� IMfe'e ��  MINERAL FLOAT     J  The turning camps of the Fort  Steele mining , division, will  speak in no uncertain sound,  when sufficient transportation is  afforded to the output bf "ore, for  mines situated in the main range  ��� ol Ihe Rocky mountains.  Some Nelson publications will  awaken some morning, and find  the Crow's Nest, Southern' railway under construction.  During the past year the own-  vcrs  of  1,110 ..mineral  claims recorded  their assessment   work.  The slowness  and  unsatisfac^  -' .tory conditions of  railway construction in 'South  East'Kootenay, illustrates the  truism  thai,  mine owners can't develop  mineral properties without/ adequate  riieans of transportation.  ,A promising group, the De  Mornac, Fcmmp do Rose,' Lady  ' Ilorlense, La Belle. France and  ' Cpment, form a very promising  group of clajms that are siiuatcd  on Maus creek, three miles from  Fort Steele.  The Try Again mineral claim  >situated on Six'Mile creek, has a  line   showing,   the   ore   carries  gold, , silver, and  copper.     The  surface assays show  a   value of  "   $2:3 to the ton. "'       '     ,  "Lone  Star and   Equator   are  .situated,on the east fork of Wild  Horse crook-, the ore is,a safllor-  ' -itc,    carrying   gold,   silver   and  .   iron, assay returns give a  value  .of Si)  in   gold  and 2.'! ounces in  silver.     J  Some 15 or 20 very promising  claims are located on the south  ��� fork of Elk river. The ore on  all of' these properties carry  copper in more or less quantities  , i The Spirit claim was tlie first  quartz claim locatod in the Port  Steele district, a large amount  of development work has .been  performed, the ore is'a galena.  The deal on the Hidden Hand  group was closed up last week.  A considerable amount of development work is now going  ahead on a number of properties  on Tracy creek. ' ,  The showing on ilie Approach  claim, close to town, continues  to improve.  The owners of the Carbonate  King group, report " that property is improving with every  foot lhat, the tunnel is drove.  A. line, body of galena, .was  struck in tho Aurora, claim last  weelc.  It. is reported that the B. <���().  Gold.Fields Co. have purchased  a large interest, in the'Estella  mine.  The Granny smelter will put  in two additional furnaces,  which will increase tho capacity  to 1,200 tons per day.  1 n the event of a railway be-  ing constructed in the Kootenay  valley, it will open up a mineral  section of vast extenl.  Mining in tliis section has already begun to feel the effects  of spring, many prospectors  have already made their appearance.  The development of the Carbonate King property, is attracting attention. The ledge matter  carries values in silver and lead.  During the. present .year, capital seeking profitable investr  merits, will be. attracted to the  rich mineral resources of South  East Kootenay.  The outlook for  the  prosecu  tion,of mining and mine development, this spring in the mines of  Ilie Fort Steele district. was  never so bright.        , ���  There arc now a large outfit of  civil engineers surveying tho  Jennings-Tobacco Plains route  to Ihe Fernie coal fields.  Indications are that Sand creek  and Bull river will soon'become  one of the important copper producing camps in the'dislriot.  WINDERMERE   NEWS.  L.ATEST  TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.

The town of Windermere is  situated -on the east side of  Windermere Lake about 70 miles  nortli of Fort Steele. I'he popu-  lalion'mimbers about 200. There  are two general supply stores,  two hotels and a number of  private residences. Many ranch-  ersiare located at tii i.s point. As  a mining district, Windermere is  rapidly coming to the front,  many promising claims have  boon' located, and during the  past year a large amount of development worl?<" has been done.  Tlie Paradise mine has been  added to tho shippiirg mines of  the 'Province.

What Fort Steele Needs.  Tub Prospector proposes to  have a room where it will keep  a mineral exhibit, mining literature, and a register with descriptions of mining properties in the  Fort Steele district. Nothing  will so well advertise a town or  district, as an exhibit of the resources of the surrounding-  country. Tho large collection  now on hand at The Piiospisc-  toij office will form thc.neuclus  of tho exhibit. Claim owners  arc requested to assist in the  forming of this exhibit by sending lo this office specimens from  their properties with a description of the same, which will be  properly registered and labeled,  so that, all can see whore and  from which mine the ore was  obtained.  Fort   Steele   the   Center   of   a   Vast  '��� Mineral District.  ft is with great satisfaction  that we note tlie steady development of ��� the  mineral  claims ' al I  d i i  over the Fort, Steele district, and  when we consider that over, 50%  "of these locations and mines, are  situated within'a radius ,of 20  miles of the town'of Fort Steele,  we may well be satisfied with the  direct march of improvement to  wards the future metropolis of  South East Kootenay. The con-'  servative mining promoter and  capitalist whose readiness to in-  vest'iiv the mines in and around  Fort Steele, and in fact all over  the district, is the most practical  endorsement of the groat mineral  resources of the Fort' Steele  Mining Division of South East  Kootenay. ��  , Railway Notes. ,  ''The.

Washington, March 28.���Tho  British government has protested against China's making a. convention with any power touching-  territorial or financial affairs until the present troubles in that  country are concluded. The  protest was made through Sir  Earnest Satow, Ihe British minister at Pekih. '   . '. ','  The effect of tlie British action"  is  to   place  the  United   States,  Japan/and Great, Britain:'in   for  mal opposition .to the signing  of  a convention by China with   any  Metal Market.

Nelson Fears a Rival "In-South East  Kootenay.  There, are' few people in the  Kootenays, who do not clearly  see why the Nelson papers are  protesting, so strongly) against  the granting of a charter to' the  Crow's Nest Southern" railway.  The following article is interesting, from the*5fact that it gives  the true reason for tho Nelson  opposition:  "Nelson lias, had very few  friends iu its development as a  commercial centre. Why should  it sacrifice its greatest friend,  the C. P. R. to further the interests of a few monopolists*'���  Nelson Economist.  From reading the above, it is  made plain, that Nelson would  sacrifice the prosperity of South  East Kootenay. in its desire to  become the commercial centre of  the Kootenays. It is also made  plain that a commercial rival in  South East Kootenay is what is  most feared, not Jini Hill, or his  gigantic monopoly the Croat  Northern railroad.  With a north and south railway through the Kootenay  valley, South East Kootenay  will prosper, its mineral resources developed, its coal production increased, tho towns in the  district increase their population,  and there is no doubt but that  the business of the , district  will  A   PKOIMCKTY OF  MI'CH   1'KO.MfSE  S])CCI;il to TifK I'KOSIMX'TllK.  The  bond  on   the Red   Line  grpup, which is situated  in  the  Windermere   district   has   been  taken up, the final payment having .been made last Monday, and  is now the property of'Paulding  Farnham of New York city.  ' In July" IHflii.   .Messrs.   Collett  and   Starbird,   of   Fort   Steele  secured a bond on  the Rod Line  group, consisting of three claims  Red Line No 1, Red Line No   2,  and the Iron  Cap.,    The  claims  arc situated on McDonald   creek  in the )Vbnlermere district.   The  amount"of the-bond was ��fiO,OUU.  This property.is considered" one  of the best in that country.  ���   On  the  Red   Sine  No   1, is a  strong  lead   that can  be traced  over the three claims  that comprise the group.     Tho   ledge   is  well    defined     and    shows    up  strong.    At,the opening on ,this  claim, is an immense body of ore  which measures 20 feet in width,  and 12 feet high,   Avhich  follows  down the Red Line No 1 towards  Iron Cap'creek: running through  the Iron  Cap  claim,- making  a  continuous vein from  Red Line  gulch over the summit" to Iron  Cap gulch.    The ore is iron  and  copper  sulphides,   the   average  value'being "about $70 to the ton.  About 100 feet east of  this vein  is another strong lead, which' is  also traced .into  the  Iron   Cap  claim.', upon     which'    a    large  amount   of   development    work  has been' done. ��� No ,1   tunnel, is  some 350 feet', No 2 -W feet. No 8  1L0 feet,   this  tunnel   i.s in ore.  No -I tunnel i.s in ,I.i   feet.     The  1,0  'galena vein lies in a   lime,   sla'tc  and quartxite formation'.     l  Work on the property will be  continued as long a.s the supplies'  in camp hold out. As soon as  the season will permit, a  sufficient amouut of supplies will  be taken to the mine, and work  will be vigorously prosecuted  under ' the management of  Thomas Starbird.  We learn that Mr. Farnham  has a bond on the Contention  and Iron Cap fraction, which  will be taken"up,on May 1st. .  This deal has a, particular interest to the people of Fort  Steele, as it' is on the line of the  proposed Kootenay Central railway, and there is no doubt, but  that it will become a shipper as  soon as transportation is afforded.     ���    . ,  Round,trip fare 'ftiO.OO from all  points, exclusive of sleepers and  dining cars.

From Our Own CoiTcspmHk'iii.  ,   A-large number of prospective  settlors have recently arrived in  the  country  and   have taken up  land.      The   land   taken  up   is  along tho proposed route'"of  the'  Crow's Nest Southern railway.  " South   of    the    International  boundary,the land has all   been  taken,   the construction  of   the "  proposed branch  of the   Great  Northern     railway,     ."Tobacco  Plains and Jennings road" is the  particular   reason, .why    these  lands have been gobbled up.  South of Tobacco Plains, the  international boundary has never  been defined, and in the.'location  of mineral claims there, i.s some  confusion as lo where location*  shall he recorded.

That.it  is  a  mineral district in  all  that the  name  implies  has been  demonstrated   and  proved  by the output of silver-lead from the North  Star,   St.   Eugene and" Sullivan  ���   mines, which have shipped7 over  35,000  tons   of   ore.   valued   at  1(1,500,000.    The  largest bodies  of coal found  on   the American  continent   are   situated   in   the  Port Steele district.  *   *   . ��������  The  coming   season   will   no  doubt be the'beginning of an era  of increased prosperity  in  the  Fort Steele district.    Heretofore  the ore  producing   mines   were  limited to the inadequate  means  of      transportation,      "a     line  running  east aud west through  the    district'1    consequently    a  large portion of the district  has  been laboring under a disadvantage in  not  being able to show  and  prove by actual  shipments  that we   possessed   more   than  three valuable mines.

Tho" cry  I'liiif; ou( on tlio busy street A  few blocK-s .away, il boy had  struck ;i horse that was standing  fjiiielly, just lo see liini start.  Ho had started, imd now everybody on the si reel, and none  niore anxious lliau the boy, was  1 Tying lo slo]) liim.  11' iho cry had "one  up, '"Slop  lhat   example!"    people     would  have thought it the ravings oi* a  maniac.    Yet somewhere.on lhat  stroot was n man Unit had��'Slart-  ed something worse Ihun  a runaway horse,     lie had   started   a  habit    in     lhat     boy,     by    his  example, that all tho town might  never be able to slop.  And  if" some one  hud   cried,  < ''St'ip that boolr!1' no one would  have  suspected   Unit  the writer  of   a   hurtful   story    had   been  brought to see that he had started an evil, influence  thai   might  novej- bo stopped.  If people .should cry out after  all the dangerous inJlucnccs that  need to be stopped, but" cannot  always, the street would bo a  baticl of sound,-,: "'Stop y6tir  . hast j- words!'- ''Stop that  thoughtless jest!" '-Stop thai  ribald song!"' "Stop my pernicious, leadership!"' Instead of  lotting loose frantic horses,, and  mad dogs, and wolves, let us  try lo start doves, and angels ol  blessing, good influences that  will need -no stopping.���John  Eranklin.  Through tho Dark.  oSome years ago 1 stood at the  mouth of one of the Chicago  .tunnels, showing my little' son  tho dark passageways under tho  'river. As he peered info tho  darkness lie seemed frightened,  and hekVmy hand with'a firmer  ,   grasp.       ��    '  I said lo him, "You would not  dare go through that 'dark,  gloomy place, would you?"  * Looking into ' my face confidingly,' he replied. ("Papa, if you  would go with mo, *and T could  hold your hand, T would not be  afraid."  His childish faith and confide.ice that ho was safe while  clinging to his father's hand was  a lesson to mo that I have never  forgotten. Lt. has taught me  that, no matter how dark and  rayless "a pathway 1 may bo  called to pass through, or what  doubts, trials, and difficulties  con I rout me, there i.s One who  says, .'���Fear thou, not, for I am  with thee; be not dismayed, for  I am thy God. E will strengthen  thee: yea, I will help thee: yea,  E will uphold thee with tho  right hand ol" My righteousness". ^-Di\ O. F. Presbrcy.
