MINES   BONDED.
We learn that the Midnight   Mineral olaim has
been boncfed to Spokane parties. The Midnight is
an extension to the North Star on the north.
We are unable to learn the amount of *l,e bond,
but it is in the vicinity of *J50.000.
B.C.Kingsbury and others of Spokane are interested
in the deal.
; i mi iiiii iiii i i
A deal is in prog
A deal is in progress for the bonding of the
Quantrell.Utopia and the Stonewa 11 Jaokson,to a
Butte outfit. These olaims are situate on the
North Star hill,
Other parties are'seeking to bond a block of
. four olaims on the North Sta r Mountain ,and it
is possible that the deal will be corisumated.

TRANSPORTATION.
It is a matter of the utmost importance to the
mining industry of this distriot,that the Kootenay river,between Fort Steele and the Boundary
should be improved. There is now four large
steamboats plying on the river,transporting large
amounts of ore. And the demand for transportation
is steadily increasing,next season the demand
will be increased three fold. The amount of ore
shipped this year will be in the vicinity of
6.000. to 8.000.  tons. The possibilities for next
are large ,it is estimated that it will reach
20.000. to 30.000. tons.Some action should be      l
taken by the Dominion Government to further the
mining industry of this distriot and improve the
only outlet for ore, that there is at the present
time,
INCREASED MAIL SERVICE.
The mining interests of the Fort Steele districl)
has assumed such proportions that it'is  impossible for mining men to   transact their business
with a weekly mail. Hundreds of letters   ,goes
out by the boats to Jennings,thence  to all parts
of the United States and Canada.  A letter going
out by .boat reaches Victoria in four days,it
tak*s four days fora   letter to   reach Golden,
on the C.P.R. Letters going to Spokane,, and othert
mining centers reaoh their destination and returr)
answers are received in    seven days.
We would suggest that the P .O.Inspeotor pay Fort
Steele a visit and look over the   sl tuation ,and
we think that we oan satisfy him that  the* demand
for increased mail service is an actual neoessi-
tyand should be granted.
