There are 2."),000'tons of ore in  the Estella mine ready' foist oping,   i  '  ' Most of the-old placer mines  of the Fort Steele district are'  being reopened. , ���  The future of Fort Sleelo is  dependent upon the development  of its vast mineral resources.   -  The,north and .south 'railway  ,"through    the    Kootenay.. valley  ��� wrill open up a promising mining  district.

This is the iron age, and,large  deposits of iron are found in the  * Fort Steeledistrict.^  Since the first'of January oyer  four hundred quartz claims have  been located in this district. -  i- i if?  Nickel is now being mined on  tVild Horse' creek.  The developments of the  past  -  year indicate a healthy and prosperous condition of the mining  industry of the Fort Steele district.     '   ���  Good roads and  trails  cannot  fail to prove'an economy   in  the  opening  and   prospecting   of   a  . mine.  The gold production of the  world for 1900 was 12,457,287  ounces valued at ��257,514,700 ,  The silver output of the world  amounted to 178,7*6,790 ounces,  the largest ever known. "  Wild Horse creek was the  scene of a mining excitement in  the early '00s, the gravel, was  mined by ��� the most simple  methods. Largo     hydraulic  plants, manyL miles'of ditches  and Humes contribute to a large  and increasing production of  tjold from the bars of the histor-  ic creek.  The sale price of lead has been  reduced by the American Smelting & Refining Co., from *3.<)0  to ��3.40 per hundred pounds.  The official report of"the Colorado commission of mining indicates that there was &)0,314,0l!>  worth of precious metals pro  dncod in 1900. This vast amount  is the production of a state that  has been under development for  nearly forty years.  The total production of British Columbia for 1900 was  ��:',S.:S(59,751, which is not so bad  for a comparatively new country  whore quartz mining has been  developed during a period of not  more than ten or, twelve years.

FUzgen.l.ci,  a" scrapper of local repute,  made a vicious attack" -' uptfn  Stove .Powell, -.Ihe" weapon employed being a ��� double-  billed axe.  The particulars as reported by  a' PpbsrrCTOK 'representative  are as follows': . Constable  Barnes while in pursuit of other  parties, had hi smitten tion drawn  by a remark- made by one on the  other side of some bushes saying  "God damn you, what are ybj.i  doing Here?'* then ,a blow was  struck. Roundingo the bushes  Constable Barnes saw a' man on  the,ground and J. Fitzgerald  standing over him with adoable,-  bitted axe in his hand. ��� Barnes  took Fitzgerald by the arm and  told   him   that    he   was -under  f     i  arrest, but Fitzgerald did not in-  tend to be arrested that ./way,  and immediately^ attacked the  officer. ' Constable Barries;  who' having recognized Fitzgerald, and knowing that he was  a tough customer, had pulled  his gun, and when the attack  upon him was made sailed in,  striking ,the would be murderer  over the head with his gun. It  was nip and tuck," the .officer  having all he could do to hold  his man and prevent Himself being injured; but after' hitting  his prisoner some half dozen  times, the thug wilted, and the  officer landed him a prisoner at  the jail.  No reason is .known why the  attack was made on Mr. Powell,  who never met the would be  murderer, and was not even acquainted wiih his reputation as  a pug and all round bad man.  Mr. Powell received a severe  cut on the left side of his head  narrowly grazing the skull  whid? was laid bare. He had a  very narrow escape from instant  death.  Fitzgerald on Saturday appeared before Magistrate Armstrong upon a charge of assault  with a deadly weapon. He was  committed for trial at a court of  competent jurisdiction at Nelson  A   Portion of the Plant Will Be  Operation March 1st.  R.   J.   Sanders    and     L.   F.  Williams,     directors     of      the  Sullivan Minings Company, visited  Steele  on  Monday  last, and  Mr. Williams had  the  following  to say about -the ^improvements  now    going   on   at   Matfysville.  "The contract has been,let for  the grading of the  smelter site.  If the  prevailing  weather con  ditions continue for three weeks  longer we shall have everything  undercover,   and  brick laying  for.the roasters will commence.  It    is '-'not   expected   that   the.  smelter will be blown  in  before  May 1st.    But with  the  roaster  in  operation  a large amount of  ore  will  be roasted in readiness  for smelting.-' The question of a  railway to themine has not been  settled.     The'O.   P.  R.   are in  favor  of running  an arid tram  from   tlio  mine  to  the smelter,'  this would cost in the  neighbor-  hood'of 825,000, while the lowest  estimate for   a railway -to   the  mine was $80,000.   The'company  prefer the1*railway as' it will enable them to get  in  machinery,,  supplies etc.    It is'expected that  the mine will start up aboul>  the  middle of February.

C���The new  Hay-Pauncefote treaty has been  signed by secretary Hay for the  United States and Lord Paunce-  fote  for' Great1 Britain.     The  principal point of difference  between  the  new and  the   failed,  treaty is the withdrawal of Great  Britain from tlie joint guarantee  of  the neutrality  of  the canal,  thus leaving the United  States  the sole guarantee.-   The section  of  the' old provision respecting  the ' right  to fortify   the   canal  leaves the   right   by   inference  optional with the United States.  All  commerce  passing through  the canal will fare alike.    There  will be no discrimination in rates  of  the United  States shipping.1  The full text of  the  treaty will  remain a secret until the  senate  shall   break   the    seal'  of   confidence.

In early  .days before the advent of the  Crow's Nest Railway, a number  of large steamers were plying on  the river between Fort Steele  and .lenning, Montana. Merchandise was coming into the  district, ore was going out, but  - this vast tonnage was turned  over to tlie railway, the steamboats out of commission, idle for  the want of energy and push to  compete with the railway'for the  carrying trade of the district  This state of affairs may be  changed in the near future. Applications have been made to the  Steamboat Company for tenders  for the transportation of ores to  the south. Said tenders have  been received, and said to be  satisfactory, and we may confidently expect that the coming  spring will see one if not two of  the old familiar steamboats navi  gating the waters of the Kootenay river.  *    *    i<  As a result, the railway situation  will be improved.
