Mr. George O. Buchanan, Supeiin-  tendent of the Federal Lead Counties  says the Kootenay mine-owners have  recei\ed $121,000 in bounties, the production for the nine months of the  fiscal \ear being S.000 tons of metallic  lead. The- lesumption of the St.  Eugene and other mines is expected  to bring the production.to 15.000 tons  in the remaining thiee months of the  fiscal year. The,previous year's total  was slightly over 9.000 tons, so the  bounty has already .had a-marked  effect.  \ Russian Reform.
