EDITORIAL     NOTES.
In East Kootenay there are n
class of men who endure toil and
hardship in their efforts .to discover the hidden treat-tire, They
are the pioneer prospectors, and
without them our mineral wealth
would remain hidden. They
should have their reward, bul it
too oflen happens that thoy
plaoo such oxti'iivugant value on
their findings that it frightens
capital away. This uot only pre-
vents the prospector from realizing u return Ironi his labor, hut
it tends to retard tho active do-
l velupuiciii of the district, The
'wise thing fui' ihe prospeotor to
do is in place a fair valuation on
his claim, which will bear inspection, iiiid the result in tho
end will be to his advantage On
the other hand capitalists should
not haggle over a fair price when
a really good proposition is laid
before them.

Railway projects of all sorts
are in the air, and a number of
them will remain there.
Thee is gold in the mountain,
there is silver in the hills, and the
prospector, that will prospect
and attend to his business faithfully is sure to get there, and
be rewarded.
We have a gun club, but they

of this district when energetic

the proper development of our
immense mineral resources, and
wo must use all Iho means possible to obtain these results.
Let anyone pause and think of
the future ot this district, of tliu
vast number of mining claims located, and of the vast mineral
resources in the various singes
of development, and ho will no
longer doubt that the Fort Steelo
mining district is on the eve of
wonderful progress and great
prosperity.

The question of the duly ou

Colorado smelters says:
"1 contend that the duty on
load ores should bo three-quarters of a cent a pound, whether
such ores are more or less valuable for lead or silver, and tliat
the duly on refined lead or on a
base bullion should be double, or
11 cents per pound.
"The clause in the present law
which lixes a duty of three-quarters of a cent per pound on oil
ore when more valuable for lead
llliiu silver is wrong, is prohibitive, unjust, and in the nature of
a discr'uumiiiation against tho
poorer mine. Further, it assesses
a duly iijioii the ganguo of the
ore, whicli is of no value whatever and has no bearing upon
tlie production of the American
mines, since tlie lead is the metal
whicli has to pay the duty, ll
should take llie same duty
whether the lead is more or less
valuable for load or silver. In
the last few years the national
lead trust (so culled) has succeeded in keeping the price of the
domestic lead at seaboard points
from tlu to 40 cents per lliu
pounds below the cost of foreign
loud, laid down, duty paid. They
have done il by importing considerable quantities of foreign
load at limes when the domestic
price was advancing too high,
Warehousing tho sunn.' in New
York for its effect upon the domestic price, which, being accomplished, they have either withdrawn thi.' lead niid consumed ii
or I'u-exportud it, us would prove
nuni advantageous lo the trust.
'I'll..- consequence is tli.it the duty
ou foreign refined load should input ut such a figure us would
tend iu limit this particular
transaction and su would portnii
American smelters, in times
when the domestic market is
being manipulated, lo smelt foreign ores in iiuiitl nnd oxporl llu:
resulting refined lead necessury

If a; this point tlio blossom rock
is barren, or spoon, pan or othor
simple test gives no satisfactory
return, however promising and
"lively" tho country formation,
enclosing rocks or vein may lie,
ii is considered "no good," and
the field is abandoned. Tho apex
nf a shoot or chamber, when put-
cropping, may often he covered
with loss than a saddle blanket,
wedge shaped, with the point
upward, and blind on either side.
A week at the longest of desultory pick work with no good returns, in un extensive virgin
territory, convinces the novice
that tin- F.I Dorado is just ''over
the divide." There will be more
finds recorded when the prospector, having discovered a fruitful
territory, if it is in human possibility, camps right there for
the season, and, if necessary,
when the lode is blind, trenches
to rind the source of "float," and
cross-cuts every 20 or thirty feet
along the line of tho lode claim.
Stay with il; persistency will
win. Tho provalant fault of tho
old timer is apt to be that ho is
too positive, too bigoted, and is
generally married to certain (to
him) favorite formations, and
will havo no good in others. To
illustrate: The Montana minor
insists on "granite" as a necessity in the country formation-, tho
Californian, in "contact," or in
close proximity "slate" is a prime
factor in a gold boll, etc. They
do not appear to consider that
nearly all kinds of rock are combinations of two or more minerals, and many kinds of their
favorite formation, a few "fruitful," many "hungry." Nor do
they realize generally, how the
deposition of mineral is affected
by proximity of other rocks
Everyday experience and discoveries verify the trito but true
saying that "silver is in veins,
and gold is where you lind it."

Mr, E. A. Elton, of Fort Steele
East Kootenay, B. C, passed
through the eity yesterday en
route homeward for Ottawa,
where ho has been on a mission
to the government to obtain
better mail service for his district, and incidentally to press
tho needs of the Crow's Nest
Pass Railway. Mr. Elton has
been a resident of the East Kootenay for a 'number of years, and
is exceptionally well posted on
tho formation of the country, its
products, tho mines already
iu operation and what they
promise.
' A reporter, who fortunately
ran across Mr. Elton, ventured
an assertion that the gold boom
in East Kootenay in the sixties,
had burst owing to the exhaustion of the mines.
"That is true in a sense," replied Mr. Elton, "but what was
placer mining? If a man could
wash out §20 a day he could make
money, but as soon as he failed
to get that much, it became
necessary for him to move. There
are throe companies re-working all the old placer mines by
hydraulic process, and are malting good inonoy at it."
"Wouldn't    the   oxislence of
placer minus Indicate tlie presence of free milling gold ore
somowhoro.'"
bituminous anthracite and comiel
Riding along the Crow's Nest
trail, which follows the bottoms
adjoining Elk river, tlio coal can
bo seen for miles as it crops out
between alternate ledges of sandstone high up on the mountain
side, some of the seams being
over 30 feet in thickness. Prom
Coal creek summit down to
Michel creek, a distance of over
100 miles, coal oan be seen in
places all the way. South of the
proposed route nbout ten miles
are found large quantities of coal
oil pronounced by experts to be
of superior qualities, while at
the entrance of the Kootenay
valley numerous veins of high
grade copper ore have been located.

Tho National Matte Smelter.
A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities whero
lead ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of \1 to 80
tons per day. It is tlie simplest
method of gold and silver ore
malting, and concentrating that
is known to-day.
It requires no extraordinary;
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the smelter after it is started. Tho sulphor in tho ore is its natural
fuel only, and its cost has no
comparison with any othor process of concentrating,
We are prepared to furnish any
