From a mining standpoint, the  ��� big copper belt tributary to  the  ��� St. Mary's river is in a   nourish  ing condition.  Another   industry  whicli   will  > when   fully   developed,    be    of  groat importance Lto   the   Fort  Steele district,   is  the   big iron  beds at Bull river.  Port Steele is becoming a  groat supply point for the mining camps tributary to the town.  The prospects for the future  of the Fort Steele district are  bright, and a number of important mining deals will soon  be closed up.  Like other mining camps, Fort.  Steele is afflicted with the  "Knocker'' and is suffering in  consequence."  If a man cannot say a good  word for the district at large, he  should have gumption enough to  keep his face closed.  Taken all-together no district,  in the province has more reason  to bo thankful and hopeful than  the Fort Steele district.  Although there is a wide  difference between the mining  and lumber interests of the Fort  Steele district, they are 'of  special importance to the district.. ' '  The purchasers < of the Bull  river iron beds are Butte men  full of  energy  and   push,   and  possessed of ample capital lo  work the big property on a scale  proportionate with ils .importance.  Actual results have demonstrated that,iii  the   Fort   Sleek*  i  district, with 'depth, the ore  bodies become larger and richer.  The Fort Steelo iron beds will  enjoy the distinction soon of  being lhe largest iron mines in  Canada.  The capacity of the smeller to  bo erected at Marysville will be  IHO tons a day.1  Another year will prove the  Fort Steele district lo bo the  greatest mineral producing district of lire Province.       -  SMELTER   AT  MARYSVILLE.

W. Gebo, representing  Ii. L.  Frank  of Butte.   Montana,   for  the  sum of ��120,000,   the  bond  extends ovei a period   of. eleven  months. <l  For the past month there has  been rumors galore regarding'  the Bull river iron mines. First  it was announced that the C. I?.  R. was in the, field and had secured the property, then it. was  said that the Crow's Nest Coal  Company had secured an option  on the group of mines; aud while  there is no doubt, that both of  the above companies were trying  to secure the property it is now  evident lhal, while recognizing  that it was the. biggest proposition of its kind in Canada, "yet  they were slow in coming' to the  front and closing up the deal.  On Sunday last Mr. S. W.  Gebo,arrived ih Steele, and soon  was in consultation with Jas. T.  Laidlaw who had control of the  property, y Arrangements were  hastily made, and- on Monday  Mr. Gebo visited the mines. Tt  is needless to say that he wiis  astonished at the immense showings of hematite iron which con-  of the district are the largest on  the American continent, the iron  beds at Bull River and Kitchener  when developed will rank as  high; and ihere are several  mines that have reached a point  of producing.  The great future of the district  depends largely on cheap and  convenient, transportation to  bring the varied resources, so  favorably located, to industrial  centers, or the establishment of  manufacturing industries in the  district. 'With coal mines sufficient, to monopolize,, all the  present transportation facilities,  with by' far the larger portion of  the district without transportation, mines developed, ��� ore on  dumps, the district awaits until  the necessary transportation is  afforded.    , ��  In conclusion we may say  that the Fort Steele district can  pride itself in the fact that a  world of valuable.rminerals are  concentrated inside its boundaries.

X  <UE' meeting of the shareholders of the Kootenay  'Central  Railway,held   at   Fort  Steele on  Monday  las'f demou-  -strated the progressive  interest  taken by  the   Company   in   its  efforts  to  build  a railway from  the      international      boundary  through the Kootenay valley and  --by-the=best possible route.    Tlie  experience of the past is  ample  ��� assurance that more railway connections is  needed,   the district  1    can never"have adequate clevel-  ,    opment until the north and south  ,  railway is constructed/'  The coal mines in. the  district  can only be developed to the ex-  'tent of an  output of   5,000   to  10,000 tons daily by securing the  best''railway   connections   possible.    In considering  this   proposed ' railway  development  wo  niusUreinember tho.large mineral  areas along the proposed  route,  and  the  possibility  of shipping  mines capable of producing   tho  "necessary lonuage. ,]n considering this toiinage', it is safe to say  that if this line was in actual op-,  oration   today,   as  far  north as  Windermere,   a  tonnage  of  not  less then 500 tons daily could be  obtained.     The   proposed   railway will open up a prospect of  smelting development which will  " be of importance to the  mineral  development of1 the  district;   it  ���will also enable   the   big   Bull  river iron mine to reach a  point  of development which is  clearly  impossible   without ,a   railway.  In the Fort Steele district  we  have an immediate prospect of  tho enlargement of an  immense  coal   industry,  big smelting enterprises, the rapid development  of otir vast*1.mineral   resources,  the   establishment   of   immense  iron and steel manufactories, enlargement   of    the   lumber   industry., and many other more  or  less important industries, all depending on   the construction  of  this most important, railway.  *    *    *  It is an assured fact that a  smelter and possibly a lead refinery will be built in the Fort  Steele district. This is one of  the most important steps, which  haa been, taken during the pasi  year to further the mining progress of the district. It will  have a tendency to open up a  large mineral area, to hasten the  development of our mines, and  will build up f a home smelting1  and refining industry, that'will  be of great advantage..,to South  .East Kootenay.  The Fort Steele district is rich  in minerals of all kinds, -within  its borders are found the largest  coal areas on the American continent. Further railway accommodations are necessary for the  rapid development of our mines,  and thosej with branch lines and  spurs wili.be provided, and there  is reason to believe that an era  of incroased  prosperity   is now  coming.  #    *    *  On Monday last all labor  organizations iu Canada wore a  unit in the celebration of,, Labor  Day.'

I don't savey  much   dictionary,   and  that  air  . enamoring business   may   be a  new  name for   an   old ailment  since  the   microbes   came   into  fashion.  ' I would advise you   to  try and throw it olf,  "if quinine  and whiskey in conjunction,'' ''or  straight," don't stop it, try bleeding,   bleed    somebody    else' if,  necessary;   there  is a "charm in  .that kind  of surgery.,    I have  known    lots    of    stout "hearty  fellows  afUicfed  as you say you  are,   lo   convalesce   being   bled  once,   and  some by bleeding the  .other fellow, it sets up a sort of  sy in pathetic action and they   become ' guileless- as .in- infancy.

It is a sort of clearance and a clean  bill  of health,  that gives a fellow a vast volume  of  scoperasity  to  exercise   and  train his talent in. * No Lucky, 'I  would not recommend your  takr  ing out a miner's license, better,  far   bejjtei"   take    out   a   saloon  license   near   some   prohibition  stronghold,  and  make glad the  heart of your fellow mortals.  You are anxious to know what  is .the best mineral to prospect  for. Well, generally, speaking  gold is the Rtuff,r,'but it is not  necessary to confine your ambition to that entirely. You  might.stake any kind of an old  prospect having the,, right kind  of a contact, and strike your pay  streak way down east, and as a  rule iu that case work it for all  it is worth,-and don't be scared,  until you strike a house and then  see that it is on the other follow.  The lead business is all right in  its way, but don't get stuck on it  all together, some enterprising  prospectors,. 1 have known to  get full of the article when  working a gold lay and bo everlastingly lagged iu.  You say that you are not content to be simply a hewer of  wood and a drawer of water, and  aspire to a wider sphere, well  that spirit ought to be encouraged, it is a noble trait for  one of your tender and succulent  nature to rather aspire to be a  clipper of coupons and to draw  checks of six tiguros. I see my  dear Lucky you have most of the  ingredients in your make;up that  go to make a success in this life,  aud all you need is the proper  lluxing.
