Gluts Elwood, an old time prospector returned to Steele ou
Monday, he says the Port Steele
country is good enough for him.
No liner weather can be found
iy pare of the world at this
1: ui wo are now enjoying
i.i Port Sleele.
Harry McVittie is captain of
the now boat, "Jim Wardner"
lately constructed at Port Steele.
Mr. Forsyth's cottage near the
south end of Riverside Avonuo
is nearly finished and will bo one
of the prettiest houses in town.
A party of surveyors left Port
Steele in the now boat "Jim
Wardner'' to survey tho new
town.

greatly in evidence in connection
with the various petitions got up
of late for the future well being
of the district,
Tho Groat Northern Kail way

last Saturday, ho reports the
roads in bad condition, between
JSlk river aud Six mile Hat, there
are many trees across the road.

The boys were evidently ou to
Mr. Todd, and done everything
possible to prolong his stay at
Port Steelo, they fastened some
half dozen syrup cans to the keel
of his boat, thereby showing a
desire to assist him ou his way
down tho river. We have heard
that boys occasionally can a dog,
but this is the lirst time in tho
history of J. A. Todd that his
boat was canned.
C. P. Venosta & Go's report
for lust week is most encouraging, enquiries and visits from

interested in real estate while
mining matters are no whit behind. Messrs Gilpin, Linehatn,

Of course we meet here in Port
Steele the same specimens of
calamity howlers wo met years
ago iu other districts, good meaning, though over cautious individuals, who are afraid to work
a prospect except they lind a
vein of §20 gold pieces, well
cushioned by a gangue of §100
bills, but you meet such men in
every new mining camp. Then
again you havo a class of would
be geologists, who are inclined
to bo formation cranks. You meet
them hero, in this province,
whicli has so many geological
structures, contact veins of all
descriptions, true tissues of am
airing sine, and a good average
value of precious metals. You
will find groat areas of granite
traversed by immense veins of
gold quartz, caught at every
angle by a perfect not work of
extremely rich scums and fissures
of cpjartz carrying the yellow
metal, which without doubt sup-
plyed the immensely rich placer
diggings, which have been so
successfully worked in Iho past,
and which are at present being
worked at great profit by new
and improved machinery.
The mining history ol' the Port,
Steele Mining Division of East
Kootenay affords a striking illus
trillion of tho forced miopia! ion of
milling to circumstances, and its
present activity iu llie face of
adverse market conditions is a
proof of tho point we desire ti
make, viz. "That mining ns tt
legitimate business, will bo capable of greater profits in Ibis
district, than in any section or
region on tlie face of the
earth."
If we consider the output of
thu Port Steele district, with the
mines of Cripple creek, and use
as factors the amount of development work done in the respective
districts, wo can better comprehend the great and rich mineral
belts of East Kootenay.
"Cripple crook one of the best
mining camps on llie American
Continent, had without doubt a
great output in tho lirst your of
its existence; but lot us compare
the output, with the development
work it required to obtain this
amount of wealth, and then wo
will havo factors whioh will illustrate that our statements are
based on facts, indisputable

3000 more on the dump. The St.
Eugene did not ship, but has
0000 tons ready for .shipment, tlie
Dibble has 50 tons of very rich
ore to ship.
Comparing tlio amount produced por foot of development in the
districts mentioned, we lind tliat
the Port Steele district produced
$212 per foot, and Cripple crook
?20. This is a grand showing
for Fort Steele.
Wc hope, and our hopes are
based upon the logic of circumstances, tliat British Columbia,
and especially tlio Fort Sleele
mining division of East Kootenay, may be eventually transformed from an ore shipping district,
to a smelting centre: But as long
as our "Honorable Members
gathered together in Legislative
Assembly" seem so much occupied with questions of importance,
lhat it is impossible for them to
give due consideration to a question of such importance "to this
district, and tlie province at
largo" as the Crow's Nest Railway, or to consider tlio mining
resources uf tlie province in thoir
proper relation as to their becoming revenue producers, or
tho actual wants of these outlaying mining districts, we cannot
undertake to form an estimate us
to what, the productions of tlie
Port Sleele district would be for
llie coining year.
in the district there are nearly
loo mineral locations recorded,
in 1800, there were recorded 1105
certificates of improvement and
it is safe to say that upon tlie
advent of the railway at least 10
per cent of these claims would
bocoino producing mines.
