Young accompanied  by N. A. Wallinger visited the  Perry creek gold mines Tuesday  last.  The gold output from the Wild  Horse placers will bo increased  by over 100% this year, over that  of 1000.  The present year has been one  of consider:!bio aolivil.y in development worlc throughout, the entire district.

For a long time tho  world's supply ofJ nickel came  from "New Caledonia a French  penal colony. Jn 'that- country  they mine a silicate of nickel and  the industry has reached considerable proportions. About' 12  years ago ,a large body o[  phyrrhotite ore was encountered  in the construction of the C. P.'R  in the Sudbury district. Nickel  was discovered and Cleveland  capitalists got control of large<  tracts of mineral lands, for in  Ontario, the mining laws;1 are  framed in the interest of" capital  ���**- TJ t t ,        *- ���>  and   tho   prospector ��� has   little  consideration.     Tlie-ore is free  from interfering elements and is  mined in most cases very cheap:-  ���ly. Probably-the largesl'inining  plant in the Dominion, has grown  up.from the development, of the  Sudbury nickel. There are'two  smelters with eight furnaces,  which with tho mines give deployment to nearly 2,0,00 men  and under, the control of the  Canadian Copper Company. The  company are working seven  mines and runs twelve' miles of  railroad connecting the mines  with the-smelters.  ��� The nickel on Wild JTorse  creek is silver gray in colon and  is associated with lime. Arsenic  and antimony are coiislittionls of  the ore. ' Those are interfering  elements and Ihe ore will require  different trealineht from other  known nickel ores.  As nickel is usually treated on  tho ground to save freight rales  on ore, ���and the matte only  shipped to the refinery Llio possibilities of a. deposit so close to  Fort Steele are only - limited by  the ex lent of the ore body. It, is  unde'rstood that the work* done  on the Crace Doro ledge since  'Monday has uncovered tlio ledge  about -10 feet and that the indications are considered highly  favorable. . ,  Seeping- Oil Found In Many  Places.

Mineral  The mineral resources of East  Kootenay,, wil 1 compare favorably  ��� with any section of British  Colli.nhia at a   period showing  the  sn me development.    To be sure,  other  portions.of  the  province  have been developed io a point  where ore is being'taken  out in  quantities,   and   furnishing em  ployment. to a  large   number  ol  miners,   which   has  had   the resultant   effect    of   building   up  prosperous communities, but  no  portion ever gave such" promise.  Minerals of-all  kinds  are   found  within    the    borders    of   East  Kootenay.    Gold, silver, copper  and lead. , In the vicinity of Port  Steele there are immense lodges  of gold quart!'., low grade., large  deposits   of   copper   and   other  precious and useful minerals.   Ln  '    the, early HOs  there  was a gold  excitement on Wild Horse  creek  and within four years &!0,000,000  was taken from."the  auriferous  gravel above Brewery  Creek,   a  small     tributary"-   of   tho   Wild  . . Horse.    The diggings  extended  for about a mile;  large  sums of  money jwcro expended   in  hui'ld-  1    ing iluines and  other  heqessary  , work, but the'big pay was taken  ��, out  in   four   years, ' although a  vast amount of gold  has  been  '   taken  out since,   and  il is estimated v that   nearly   $30,000,000  has been the output of,the mines  But this is an old story and mining  people   who   were   on   the  ground in the   "good  old   days"  are still   in   the  llosh' and lake  pleasure in recounting the' story  of  the -hardships and the large  amount of money they were once  in   possession .of. 'Those  days  '   arc .past and'you   and' tlie 'old  participants ar.e in' the' sere and  yellow leaf. have  come  to  the  front, and now the  , district bids fair to duplicate/the  wonderful output of forty  years  ago,   "aye,   and   exceed   it   too.  .Following the Argonauts, came  the*' quartz   miners.      Valuable  ledges were uncovered, .but, ow-  ���   iiig to the distance from   trans-  ', portation were not available, and  it  is  only within the  past   four  years that any great amount oi  metalliferous   mining" has  been  done���during    which   time   the  mountains on either side of   the  , Kootenay   valley    and   on    the  tributaries of   that stream   and  .   the Upper Columbia,  have  been  well prospected and many   valu-  '  able gold, copper and silver-lead  veins have been discovered.  On the St. Mary's river, a  tributary of the Kootenay, there  < arc wonderful surface showings  of copper, but too. far from  transportation lo be of immediate value. On Perry creek an  English company is developing  some quartz ledges, and are exploring the giound to determine  the method of treatment before  installing machinery. The  " famous Norlh Star and Sullivan  mines in East Kootenay; fortunately they have railroad com  niunicalion and the owners,aro  able to market their products.  Near Fort Steele there are  promising properties on. Tracy,  Sand and Lost Crooks and the  Wild Horse. ' Wagon roads have  been built very near the mines.  The Windermere country . is  showing up remarkably well,  shipments having been made, in  some instances, from time of  original location. Other mines  are being'operated by New York*  and Montreal syndicates.  There is no section  of   British  Columbia which  offers   a   belter  field for legitimate  mining   than  East Kootenay.
