FORT STEELE DISTRICT MINES.
A Section of British Columbia Whicli
Gives Great Promise.
The mines of tho Port Steele
district are beginning to receive
the attention of capital and investing mining men. There hns
been a great amount of development work done in tho district,
enough to satisfy claim owners
that, with the transportation facilities afforded by the Crow's
Nest Raihvay, that this section
will become a big producer.
This is emphasized by the fact
that the North Star company,
the St. Eugene, Lake Shore,
Moyie and Sullivan Group will
all be in a condition to ship as
soon as the railway reaches this
point.   Tlie North Star will also',
recent strike on tho Hope. There
is no reason to doubt that this
mountain has an immense body
of silver-lead oro underlaying
tho glacier deposits on tho sur
face.

Taking it altogether the Port

among tho producing milling

ON THE LINE OF CONSTRUCTION
Life on the Road-Mew Towns-Other
Matters of Importance.
(Corroaiionilciico nf Tilts Puosi'KCTon.)
Lifo iii Ihe railway camps is
not a sequence of dreary monotonies, whatever we might untied-
pate from the hum-drum routine
which characterizes tlie life of
ordinary railway navies. Labor
gives him no opportunity for
ennui, and lie has even kaleidoscopic variations of existence
which In him are springs of joy,
Hard work, ii is 'rue. is always
there, but ho has i'n' choice of
frequent change; of habitation,
and the shifting scenes have a
charm withoul which he would
fall into absolute desuetude. The
concern which niauy manifest for
him when he draws n miserable
pittance ns the wages of months
of toil would hnrd ly be so keen
if he could bo followed in his
hillnrioiis migrations from poinl
to point and watch his apparent
satisfaction in "going broke."
What are wages to him who can
"blow" a hundred as easily and
promptly us a Dominion dollar?
for it may be s'ifely said that he
who gets one dollar per day is us
rich at the end of the month as
lie w!io gets two or three. Tho
fact is that little or no expenditure of labor money would be required in building the Crow's
Nest i'ass Railway if tho company would appease and satisfy
the abnormal appi tites of the
laborers along the line.
Among the wise, report bus il
that the tine will be built on
store clothes and tobacco, and it
might be true if we add whiskey
to the joys of lifo along the
grade. Thai this remark has
some significance is plain to
those who are intimately associated with the class of contractors who have been selected to
perform lho work of construction. There is absolutely no
difference, so far us the appreciation of financial responsibility
is concerned, between the bosses
and the navies, apart
from the interest the boss
takes in the work. They have
no money, but are rich—iu promises; and no concern i.s manifested except when tho menace
of an execution appears. It is
only when face to face with the
Crown's writ that they pay.
The crimes along lhe road,
however, are surprisingly small,
considering the vicious element
which comprises the contingent
of camp followers. This happy
state of affairs is duo to the innate fear of Canadian justice and
llie scrupulous surveillance of
the efficient corps of Northwest
Mounted Police, into whose
hands theonforcementof the kiwis committed. Offences are almost wholly confined to the illicit traffic in whiskey and misdemeanors of u petty nature. No
ono can travel over tho line without a fooling of admiration for
the .system whicli can produce
such excellent results, the absolute security of lifo and proporty
in a region infested wilh rogues
and adveiilurers from every
clime.
Until recently lhe health of
the men on lhe grade bus been
good, but aboul Christmas diphtheria broke out iu lhe camps
near Coal Creek and boforo
medical skill could come to the
aid of lho sulferers, two died.
The droildful scourge has spread
to n considerable extont along
the Hue, Iiiii everything possible
is being done lo check its
course.

of the town of Crow's Nesl Lake

The Maine was a battle-ship of
the second-class and was regarded us one of tho best ships of lhe
new navy. She was built in the
Brooklyn navy yard, nnd is ,'lis
feel, long, 57 feet broad, 21.0
mean draught and 6,682 tons displacement. Shehastwo lb-inch
vertical turrets and two military
masts, and hor motive power is
furnished by twin screws, vortical triple-expansion engines, having n maximum horse-power of
0,293, capable of making a speed
of IT. IE knots. She curries four
10-inch nnd six 6-inch breech-
loading guns in her main battery
and seven six-pounder nud eight
one pounder rapid-firing guns
and foui Ci.iiings in hor secondary battery and four Whitehead
torpedoes.

There is nol a back number in
the fleet. With tho exception of
the Cushing torpedo boat, which
was put into service in 1890, not
a ship in tho Heel has been in
commission for live years. They
are the flower of tbe new navy,
and the sixteen lighting machines
are manned by iiii" officers and
8,881 men, besides the marines.
Tho batteries of the heavy ships
are simply tremendous. When
in action the fleet will be throwing shells from seventy-eight
rilled guns, with an addition of
fifty rapid-tiro guns. All this is
for long-range business, and is
in addition to the secondary batteries of low-calibered guns. The
torpedo fleet is armed with lif-
teenl 18-inch Whitehead torpedoes, and tho ships themselves
are lilted with tubes for sending
out iwonly-lhiyo more, makinga
total effective battery of twenty-
throe mui ine engines, besides Ibe
Vesuvios, mounting three dynamite guns.

Many indications point that wny.
Rossland, one of the principal
centers of the mining industry,
has been recently visited by
ninny representatives of big European houses—uud there is no
doubt lliul Brilisli capitalists ure
paying grout attention to the
mines of this rising colony. Concerning its vast mineral wealth
all doubt has long since been put
to sleep. A counlry which by
intermittent mining, mostly of
the placer order, has produced
minerals to the value of £20,000,-
0H0 iii twenty years, and one district of which, West Kootenuy,
has produced ■''850,000 in two
years, has answered all the questions of the mineralogist. As to
tho permanence of the gold deposits, ono or two fads are olo-
quent enough. Placer mining,
out of which the early prospectors reaped abundant fortunes, i.s
now giving place to tho more
scientific process of working the
gold-bearing lodes, and the production of lodo mines has risen
from $189,440 in 1892 to "84,257,-
171) in lHIKi. The mines of the
Rossland dislrict alone produced
100,000 ozs. of gold Inst year,
and mines nre already developed
in Kootenay which will be capable of producing 11(1(1,0011 of gold
per annum, when lhe necessary
smelting appliances are erected
and railway communication is
opened up, In nny case tho output is expoctod to be doubled
this year. Mining opporations
are now being initialed on it really colossal scale, and energetic
development, backed by ample
capital, is till that Is required,
The days of haphazard mining
by individual prospectors are
practically   over, inasmuch   as
! even with the presei
lack of facilities the cost <
froighl und treatment is no more
than §1.0 to -Ml per ion, so that
the margin of profit is enough lo
turn a Rand miner green wilh
envy.
What British Columbia now
requires to place her in the front
rank of mining countries is, first,
capital; nexl, time and railway
communication. Sho is gradually obtaining the latter. Il i.s
eusy now to raise capital for any
good British Columbian enterprise, and the Canadian Pacilic
Railway is pushing its road right
into lhe heart of Koolenuy. By
this means lhe cost of transhipment and treatment the oro will
he reduced to such a level that
nol only high-grade properties,
but low-grade properties will
also bo put on a remunerative
basis. And it has to be borne
in mind that whatever happens
to reduce the cost of mining and
bring low-grade ores within llie
reach of profitable working,
means an extra margin of profit
to the richer mines. It is an all-
round benefit. Wo shall doubtless witness a great rise in tho
mineral output of British Columbia in 1808, and, if we mistake
not, u real "boom" in the share
market.
Crow's Neat Commission.
The proceedings of the commission appointed lo enquire in
to the grievances said to exist
among the labourers on the
Crow's Nest Railway will be
watched with interest not only
by the parlies affected but by
the public generally. If lhe
commissioners really moan to
hold an honest enquiry, where
witnesses will he heard fairly
and nn impartial report given,
then a vast amounl of good will
be done, but if Ihey are simply a
whitewashing commission acting
on instructions which preclude
free judgement, then il were I'm*
better that Ihey stayed at home
altogether, and saved the country thn expense Incidental to
their proceedings.
