As much more was probably received at the Grand Forks smelter, and the receipts at Nelson  was well ,u]), as a furnace, with a  capacity of 200 tons daily is  running stead il v. This means  that lOjOOO'^ons of ore mined in  the province are treated every  week at smellers in the province  These smelters use'coal'.and coke  from mines and ovens in Kritish  Columbia, and-every 'ton''of the  haulage goes to railways whose*  operatives Jive in British Columbia."

A smeller in East Kootenay is  a much needed institution In  this district is found everything  requisite'for thcsnccessliil operation of a smelter in abundance  With ihe St. Eugene, mine having a"daily output of ll!.") tons of  concentrates,'- which represent  about l.'iO Ions of crude ore. the  North Star putting out ldd tons  daily, the Sullivan ."id tons,  means that a,.smeller having a  capacity ol 300 tons daily would  find'sufficient ore to .become operative.

Native  cooper, has  been found iu the Caldwell mine,  and in a number of properties on  the Sl. ,Mary's river:   gray  copper,   rich, in   silver   and  gold is  round on Tracy creek.     'On   the  headwaters of Wild Horse creek  large  deposits  of   gray   copper  have been located, and with  few  exceptions, on account, ol lackol  transportation,    little    has   been  done for Iheir exploitation.      As .  a     copper     producing   district.  South Fast Kootenay presents a   ,  lielel of great promise.  t The Chamber of Mines.  For several months past a  large number-of representative  mining men and bankers have  been' interesting themselves in  developing a movement which  should bring lo the knowledge  ,_pf the mining investors in tluj  large financial centres of Great  Britain. Europe, the United  States and Canada, something of  the resources of Southern British Columbia, and the de\elop  inent which has been going on  during the pasi two or three  years, and the erection r,f large  smelters, concentrating and milling plants, covering the same  period.  The large production of silver  lead ores in the Slocau, Aim-  worth. Lardeau. La rein Duncan  and South Fast Kootenay also  came ii]i for discussion, ll there  fore seemed proper ihal some  central organization should ho  established for ihe purpose of  gathering ibis dala and having  it published as widelv as possible.  ll was therefore adopted "that,  an association io be known as  ihe Chamber ol Mines of South  ern Brilish Columbia," wiih the  words 'Koolonays and Yale  bracketed in. should be es  liiblisho'd." And that a eniiiinil-  lee of four, with a president,  should be appointed to act lo  gel her for the purpose ol communicating with the representatives n| )|1(. mining, smelling  and transportation inteiosts, soliciting their active and earnest  co-operalion in'the carrying on  of ''.this .Chamber of mines.    :  Mr. .}'. B. McArthur was elect- "  ed president. Messrs. C. P.  Chamberlain. J. F. McKae, and  N. F. Townsend were appointed  a committee to solicit membership and subscriptions to the  Chamber. ��� '������-'.������', ���'-'' THE, PROSPECTOR, FOKT STEELE, B. Cr'NOVEMBEli^. Jt,  00.

A    District,   of   Grout   Promise    and
Producing Minos.
i   Tin.:    Pkosi'IOctok    ii;is    frequently  called   atteinion   lo Hie
i wonderful    resources   of   South
East   Kootenay.      It   i.s   beyond
f|UUst,ion   thai,   Hie   mineral   resources oJ' this particular section
c-aiinol, be excelled.     Mineral   of
all descriptions lias been   Joiind.
The Jirst, exhibit sent to Spokane
attracted uuiversaj attention and
was the moans of brin.n'iii^'  capi-
tal   into   the..country.    .At that
lime   howeVer,,  East,   Kootenay
had bcoii scarcely heard ol"  only
as  a  memory  of  I lie scene o.| a
fjruut   gold ; exciteinenli   in    the
early days ol' lsOU-li."), and as being-in'ore  roniofc-tihun   Halifax.
'• The condilions.  ha.ve .changed,
the  district,  i.s  easy   oi' access,
within the past li\re  years mines
in this section have  been   developed to u pouil where  they  are
shipping    lar^e ' ijuantities    of
' crude-ore and concentrates. The
Sl.'Eugene liiine is-no\v acknowledged to be the largest producer
of silver-lead ore on the  American continent.    The North  Star
has forged lo the front,, and   the
Sid li van   i.s  lairing  a first-rank
ainongthc big. producers. There
are other  properties which  bid
Jair  to'make  as good mines as
those mentioned.    Of course the
skeptical will say. they are  not
developed, this is,true,   neither
was   the   North    Star    or   St.
Eugene live year.s" ago.     There
are a dozen-properties within   1;"
