The Supply Point of the Fort Steelo
District and East Kootonay.
Fort Steele is the geographical
centre oi this district, also the
commercial centre. Iu the past
the entile business of this district was done at Sleele. At tho
present time Foit Steole commands the commercial interests
of South Eastern Kootenay.
More capital is invested at this
point than all the rest of the district combined. It is the distributing point in this region.
Fort Steele has a larger population than all other towns in the
district combined. As a residential town it has more natural
resources, is superior to any
other point in the district, and is
beautifully located ou the Kootenay river.
Other towns may tell of what
they will have in years to come,

There aro ono hundred and
twenty-two residences at Fort
Steele.
The above facts show conclusively where the commercial
center of the district is. Thore
is no necessity of our saying iu
1891) wo will have this or tliat.
We leave that part of the business to less favored towns. What
we do claim is that Fort Steele
has at this time more business
houses within its borders, that it
has double the number of residences, and has a larger population than all other portions of
the district combined; that Fort
Steele is the geographical centre, the commercial centre, and
the centre of population of the
district.
Mining News.
Reports from all over the Fort
Steelo district tend to confirm
the opinion so frequently expressed in The Prospector
that tlie mineral resources of the
district are enormous, Wo have
an immense scope of couutry,
with countless veins of gold, silver and copper, and limitless deposits of fluxing materials for
smelting purposes. So general
has become the interest in the
Fort Steele district that a largo
influx of capital may be expected
hero this summer. Even tho
most prudent and cautious of_experts are forced to tho conclusion that this district is destined
to become one of the largest and
most profitable fields of mining
enterprises in tho world. Thore
is no doubt that the district will
be properly and honestly developed, and the near future will
give adequate means of transportation.
CUT IN TWO.
Attention is directed to the advertisement ol the Vancouver World
which appears in another column. That
journal, owing to the tact that it now
possesses the latest and most approved
appliances for producing its several
editions—daily and twice a week is-
Bues—announces a reduction in its subscription terms, which practically
amounts to a cut in two, on previous
rates. The World being an up-to-dato
newspaper is always enterprising and
the step now taken cannot fail to make
it an acceptable purveyor of news and
welcome visitor to its numerous patrons. The typo from whicli it is printed is set by machinery—thene being
four Linotype machines in operation in
the composing room. The printing
press is a Web one, turning out complete copies at the rate of ISO a minute
or 11,000 copies per hour from stereotyped plates and oil a large roll of news
print paper. This is the only newspaper printed outside of Toronto, in
tho west, on a press of its construction
and with such rapidity, lt is a sight
well worth seeing, aud when in Vancouver make il your business to give
The World office a call. AU will be
welcome and the whole process will be
fully explained. Read the advertisement.
CHURCH   NOTICES.
ST, JOHN'S CHURCH.
Service will be held every Sunday eveninsr in St. John's Church
at 7:30 o'clock. Sunday School

Margaret Claim.
The Margaret claim is situate
on Four-Mile creek, about six
miles from Fort Steele, and is
owned by S. L. Boyer and others.
Tho ledge matter is similar to
that found in the region north of
Steele, and carries gold, silver
and copper. The vein on the
surface is 10 feet wide, with several small feeders cross-cutting
the main lead. Considerable
work has been done on this property, and at present two shifts
are working. Grey copper, copper pyrites and bromide of copper are found in the ore, which
has a value of £48 to t?45 per ton.
Assay returns show VA per cent
copper.
The Babylon.
The Babylon, was located last
August by H. W. Molton and is
situated on Palmer's Bar creek.
The ledge inatter is about 70 feet
in width, with several streaks of
rich ore running through it
There is one streak of flake gu*
lena two feet in width, carrying
(15 per cent lead and about -l i
ozs. in silver. Another lend curries gold, tellurides, chloriuos <>l
silver, and copper, and can be
traced tho full length of the
claim. The hanging wall is syenite and the foot wall trap-rock
and diorite. A tunnel is now in
1)5 feet, with a depth from the
surface of 18 feet.
Steele district and there are
millions of dollars worth of ore
in sight. It has been under development for a number of years
and only the lack of adequate
transportation facilities hns pi*B
vented tho property from taking
a foremost rank among the si 1 v
mines of the world.—Spokd/ie
Chronicle.
From private sources it is reported that the main ledge or
vein has beeu struck on t
North Star mine. The new d s-
covery is said to havo beon male
at a depth of 100 feet, and tie
vein is 10 feet in widtli and of a
higher grade than on the sir-
face.
Sold.
We learn that a small fraoti in
lying  between   the   O.  K. aid
Dreadnaught, on the North Star
mountain, has boon sold to Si
kano parties.
Little May.
This property is situated
Perry  creek,  and  the  owners
in
ig
have been actively engaged
developing the property duri
the past winter. A tunnol has
been run a distance of Isl font.
The ore is a free gold quara.

Emphatically True.
The Cranbrook Herald lays
great stress on tho point tliat
poople going from one part of
the district to another must pass
through Cranbrook. When the
Herald gets older, it will view
the fact of the people passing
through that town in a more
serious light. The Herald, however, has not sacrificed truth in
presenting the proposition.
Cranbrook is a splendid town —
to pass through.—Wardner International.

Try-Again Mineral Claims.
Try-Again mineral claim was
located last year by W. J. Wat
kins and A. Lee, and is situated
about one and one-half miles up

face. The lead can easily be
traced for a distance of 800 feet
and is capped by a slide of syen
ite. A tunnel is now in some 20
feet, with a full breast of oro in
the face. Assay returns give
$5.(S5 in gold, 4 ozs. in silver,
and 18 por cent copper.

1 Special despatch to The Prospeotor.]
London, March 5—The Queen
Regent of Spain has sent an auto
graph letter to Queen of England,
the New York World correspondent learns from a high source, imploring help. Queen Maria
Christina begs that Queen
Victoria will use her influence to
prevail upon the British government to support Austria and
France in an attempt to secure
European mediation.
This extraordinary step has
been taken by llie Queen Regent
because of the cold reception ac-
corded by the British government to tho representations of
the Spanish ambassador respecting mediation. Queen Victoria
Immediately forwarded a copy of
tho Queen Regent's letter to
Low Salisbury, whose polioy
will not in any way be affected
by it. England will tolerate no
policy of bolstering up Spanish
rule iu Cuba, The opinion pre'
vails lhat the government will
be pressed from the Liberal
benches of the house of commons
lo recognize lhe independence of
Cuba as soon as the United
States.

Washington, March lil.—The
naval appropriation bill, as reported to the house today, carried $35,688,058, an increase over
last year of $8,704,482 and over
tlie current estimates of $2,514,-
824. For increase of the navy
tho bill allows to he constructed
by contract three seagoing coast
line battleships, designed to carry
the heaviest guns, displacement
11,0(10 tons, with the highest:
practicable speed for their class.
with cost, exclusive of armament,
not exceeding $8,000,000 each,
one to be named the Maine: six
torpedo boats and six torpedo
boat destroyers to cost not exceeding $2,840,000, and one gunboat to take the place of the
Michigan, lhe cosl, exclusive ol
armament not over $260,000, to

of these seagoing battleships is
to be built on the Pacific coast.
Contracts for construction of all
of these vessels are to be made
within sixty days of the enactment of the hill.
Mr
line
BOARD   OF   INaUIEY   REPORT.
Established   That   Explosion   Came
From tho Outside.
The .summary of the report is
as follows: When the Maino arrived at Havana she was conducted hy a regular government
pilot to buoy No. t, to which she
was moored in from live and one-
half lo six fathoms,
The state of discipline on
board and the oondition of her
magazines, boilers, coal blinkers,
and storage compartments are
passed in review, wilh the result that excellent order prevailed and no cause for internal
explosion existed in any quarter,
Al H o'clock on the evening of
February Ifilli everything had
been reporled secure and all was
quiet, Al in miiiuics past 0
o'clock the vessel was suddenly
destroyed.
There were   two distinct ex*
been forced up, so as lo tie about
four   feet   above   the  surface of
lhe waler. therefore about 84
feet above where il would be had
she sunk uninjured.
The outside bottom plating is
benl into a reversed "V" shape,
the alter wing of which, about
lu feet broad and '12 feat in
length (from frame 17 to frame
25), is doubled back upon itself
against u continuation of theilc
same plating extending forward.   ;P
At frame 18 the vertical keel |;
is brokeu into'and bent into a | j
similar angle formed for outside1
plates. This break is about six
feet above the surface of the
water and about 80 feet above its
normal position.
In the opinion of the court this
effect could have been produced
only by the explosion of a mine
situated under the bottom of the
ship at about frame 18 and somewhat on the port side of the
ship.
The conclusions of the court
ire;
That the loss of the Maine was
not in any respect due to any
fault or negligence on the part
of any officers or members of her
crew.
That the ship was destroyed
by the explosion of a submarine
mine, whicli caused the partial
explosion of two or more of her
forward magazines: and
That no evidence is obtainable
fixing the responsibility for tho
destruction of the Maine upon
any person or persons.
I have directed that the findings of the court of inquiry and
the views of the government
thereon be communicated to tiie
government, of Her Majesty the
Queen, and I do not permit myself to doubt that the sense of
justice of lhe Spanish nation will
dictate a course of action suggested by the honor and friendly
relations of the two governments.
It is tho duty of the executive
to advise congress of Ihe result
and in Ihe meantime deliberate
consideration is invoked.

being those of
'iimidorook. On
) reports person-
his description
lintod with the
country would bo led to suppose
that thero wero a dozen claims,
most of whicli, presumably, wore
located by a lunatic, judging by
tlie bold statements therein set
forth, and whicli, by tho way,
constitute a very poor opinion of
the rest of the country, if they
nro tho most important.
The true facts are that last
year saw the opening up of ono
of tho largest copper-gold regions that has ever boon discovered, and this wo say advisedly,
as over 1,642 claims were located
last year. From White Giouse
mountain across the forks of the
St. Mary's, adjacent and parallel
to the mineral belts containing
lho Nortli Star and Sullivan
groups, trending northerly to
Cherry, Skookum Chuck and
Findlay creeks, is a mineral zone
that will surprise any one who
looks ovor the ground. Almost
all the oros of copper occur here,
as also loud sulphide, arsenopy-
ito, mayuotite, pyrrliotite, graphite, <'lc.
Tho ledges generally are wide,
easily traceable, freo on the
walls, apparently of great
strength, and often iron capped,
the country rock including mica
and talc, slates and sliists, syenite, hornblond, orthoclase, gneiss,
diorite, etc.
The oftoner ono roads the report tho loss ono likes it. The
total elimination of the northern
part of tho district is, to say tlio
least of it, insidious (it might
even bo called criminal), aud although Southern East Kootonay
is mentioned, it might just as
well be left out, as nine-tenths of
the facts are omitted, and in the
oilier lentil a groat deal i.s left to
tlie imagination.
Tlio Innumerable gold-bearing
ledges on Perry creek are passed
ovor with a slight reference to
an experimental mill, put up by
an experimental man and run by
an experimental amalgamator,
To dismiss thus summarily and
thereby condemning such a
promising oamp is unwarrant
able, and i.s exactly on a par
with the assumption without enquiry that few discoveries wore
made.
Wild Horse creek, with its
large and increasing bodies of
high-grade grey coppor ores, is
nol even mentioned; such groups
as the Coronado, Colossal and
Dodo bring presumably outcrops
of imagination; while Tracy,
Lewis, Sheep,' Wasa, Wolf, Six-
Mile and Pour-Mile creeks discoveries are severely left alone.
Why this should bo is not apparent, and we feel moro than
dissatisfied whon wo remember
the excitement caused by tho discoveries on Luke creek, St.
Mary's prairie, Elk and Bull
rivers, not taking into consideration the numerous discoveries
and extensions in the vicinity of
Moyie.
It might possibly be that Col.
Baker has loo much work- to do
on account of the many positions
lie holds, but it is no excuse, as,
if he tiiids that ho cannot do justice to all, he is bound to resign
that or those positions to which
ho i.s least titled. As to this
country the mining interests are
of paramount importance, and
we maintain that we have not received that attention to which
we are entitled as his constituency, nor have wo been accorded tho slightest justice in this
iniquitous report and we feel
bound to put on record our deep
dissatisfaction.
