Northern    mines  will   erect   a   -10  slump   mill   on  '   their.property'at Poplar creek.  Development hk slow in Ihe  . copper district ol' Ihe St. Mary's  river, but what is being done  shows to a certainty that there  are large copper deposils in that  district.  Work  is   to   be  resumed   this  spr-ng   ul,   the   Poorman-Tiger  group  ol'  mines, on Wild Horse  creek  divide.-     The property is  '   owned by .John P. Larson.

That the   Gold   Creek   Mining  'Co.,   in   the   Bull   riverdistriot,  will install a milling plajil  on its  properly this season there is   no  ...lojlger any doubt.  Australia has produced   up   to  the end  of   1003, the  enormous  ��� aggregate roi" ' *? 1,^15,750,1-15 ' in  gold.  ��� In the. mines of Great .Britain,  .'including the mining of metallic  aiid non-metallic products; there  are employed' tinder and above  ground'WO, 000 persons.  ��� The production of silver in  South. Africa for L903 was but  475.070 ounces. f There ' are no  wholly silver- mines, in South  Africa, the silver being extracted mainly from gold ores. *  Work on placer properties,  situated on Perry creek is bahig  pushed, and considerable machinery is being installed.  ' Another rich' placer country  has been discovered. It is on'  the 'Nahaani river, near Ihe  junction of , Laird and. Dease  rivers', iu northeastern Brilish  Columbia.  Since lirsl discovered tho  Payne mine has shipped 50.000  ton's of, ore valued at over  $3,000,000.  The Payne mine is shipping-  its zinc -ore to Antwerp, the  Ivuuhoe'to'lola, and the Bosun  will shortly send its product, to  Colorado. The Lucky .Jim, is  '.expected to be the largest zinc  shipper of them all, and will  likely export, to Kansas ���Koote-  naiau, Kaslo.  Since its discovery, and the  construction of the Crow's Nest  Branch, the St. Eugene mine has  shipped, according fo the mines  report, approximately -hJ.OOO  tons of ore valued at &1,130.000.  The North Star, at one time  the largest dividend paying mine  in British Columbia, has shipped  37,000 tons, valued at * 1,750,(100.  bou, and will return early iu  August, again racing'across the  ocean.  - This is a-par!--of- th'* com pre  lien-iive scheme for the improve  .neni of,Ihe niivy worked out bailie'genera! board, of which, Admiral Dewey is president It :.s  intended further to impress the  world with the serviceability of  American naval ships and develop any weaknesses that less  severe -tests have failed to reveal. Oivhis'way to Etirppe it  is probable Admiral Barker,  commanding the,- squadron, will  i nee I the Brilish North Atlantic  licet, which is" to be soul racing  across the ocean in a similar test  of siieed and endurance.  KOOTENAY CENTRAL RAILWAY  Sverything   Points   Towards   Its  -'   ��� Immediate Construction.-���  ASSOCIATED BOARDS OF  TRADE   MEETING  Unanimously Approve'the Lead  Bounty Memorial to Dominion  Government.    \   '���  At a meeting of the Executive  council of the Associated Boards  of Trade of the Koolonays, held  ;iil Nelson Aprjl l:!lh, ii was resolved; -'thai the Associated  Boards of;,Trado of eastern British Columbia, iif convocation as-  -einbled. da hereby endorse" the  memorial of the Associated Silver-Lead miners and the smelters of.

The,consl ruction of the Kootenay Cen Ira I railway, ami the  building of a smeller at Elko are  mutters in which the people of  the Koolenay valley are especially interested. They feel com  lident that they ciinnof be delayed but a short lime. "It,is felt  that the opening of the Flathead  reserve will bo quickly followed  by Atho construction of Ihe  Koolenay Central. Thi.s will  give a. great slimulus to mining  in. ihe vicinity of, Fort Steele,  also in Ihe Windermere district,  where if is 'proven that very  large and valuablcoro deposits  ,exists. '  ��� "    .,'  Much activity is manifested, in  the direction of the immense timber areas^of the Kootenay valley  - We have been informed that  an eastern syndicate have' secured an option ou C.P.R. tim-  her in the vicinity of Canal Flat,  and there is a strong probability  thtil. within 00 days arrangements will be period ed whereby  a mill of large capacity will be  installed cu the Koolenay river  near Canal Flat. This is based  lo a considerable extent on the  promise'that the Kootenay Central Railway Company will commence immediate construction.  A recent telegram received at,  Steele during the past week  from the east indicates that this  promise will bo kept, and it is  quite ' probable that the long  looked for railway'will be under  construction inside of 90 day's.  ��� New's'Notes.  able for the Conservative  candi-  late. ,     ,  The Nelson Liberal-Couserva-  iive Association is-on-' record "as  being in line with the McBride  government.

She was  born at-Kingston, Ont., and ,\vas  "27 years of age, her, father's  family moved,from Deseronto fo  Peferboro^ Ont., where her  father was manager of the Rath-  drum Co.    There she Jived  until  11  her marriage to'Mr. J. CJ. .Cumin ings.  On (.Easier Sunday, morning  she gave birth fo a little ,baby  girl at Cranbrook." Everything  appeared well until last Friday  when she suffered anrelapse, and  since then her condition was unsatisfactory, but not sufficienkto  causo'any serious alarm until the  morning of fhe I2th, when she  sank very rapidly. Peritonitis,  iu a very virulent form set in,  and an operation became the only  possible chance. This however,  proved of no avail, and she died  at about ii-U0 of the same day.  Her husband,who had left her in  a most-satisfactory condition, for  a few days, returned from his  short trip just in time to be with  her the last day.  Mrs. Cummings was a favorite  in social circles, and endeared  herself to all.

Fort- Steele is the centre of ai  district unsurpassed for scenery,  good hunting and fishing''the  world over.  The lown of Elko is situated  on" the line of the Crow's Nest  railway at the western outlet of  the Crow's Nest, Pass  This point, which is  wilhin 12  iniles  of the  coal   mines  is the  nearest ��� railway    point    to    the  Montana line,   and   in   the- near  future is destined lo become  Ihe  railwa.y     centre    of    Soulheasi  Kootenay."  At the present time,  Elko, has direct connection with  the Crow's Nest line,   and   what  is known as the Jennings branch  of the Great Northern railway.'  , There  is  a  magnificent water  power,   the  fines)   in  Southeast  'Kootenay, and abundance of saw  logs  and   mining     timber    sur-  roundingpl. also copper mines in  the     immediate     neighborhood.  Elko,    with   its   natural- advantages, is an ideal spot for a large  city;   and   is , destined   to be the  smelting  and   railway   centre of  Soulheasi Koolenay.  The completion of-the Crow.'s  Nest line has brought Elko within six hours ride of "Nelson.  Rossland and other well ' known  centres of West Koolenay; also  within two hours ride of towns  "situated iu Montana, south of the  International boundary.  . ���A.ll roads and trails in fhe  southern portion of 'the Koolenay valley centre at Elko., The  South Koolenay. Pass, which is  the most direct, and = easiest  traveled trail, .is the .principal  route in to'the now famous Flat-  head valley, and ' -at, prosenf  makes "Elko-the natural' supply  and' outfitting point for 'thai  district.. f.  The opening of" the Flathead  reserve will be of immense advantage loJSIko. The trail to  Wigwam river and Lodge Pole  creek is now open. Prospectors  and locators of claims can secure  all ' necessary supplies, ' pack  animals etc., for a trip into that  district at Elko.  As a rail way .center. Elko, has  two branch lines, connecting  with transcontinental railways;  and the Kootenay Central and  Corbin road, will, when completed make connections al this  point. ���  Will Govern Oi) Locations.  The following decision of a  United States court, will- govern  oil locations in tho Flathead  valley, south of the boundary,  in the slate of .Montana.  OPEN   TO   I'EACliAliLK   RNTKV.  It is not essential ' to the validity of an oil or mineral claim  that the discovery oi oil or mineral within its limits shall have  preceded or .shall coexist with  ihe posting of the notice and the  demarkation of the boundaries,  but tin* discovery may be made  .subsequently, and when made  operates to perfect the location  against fhe world, save, those  whose bona lida rights have iu-  lervened. Where no discovery  uf oil is made under an oil claim  Ihe local ion is. not in the actual  bona lida .possession ni, the claim  and it is open to peaceable entry  by others. ������>������*  The Crow  "o.,  iwo  shifts   and  Ne.st  Pa.s.s Lumber  are.    running  cutting   100,000  uf lumber daily. The machinery  lor the new band mill has arrived  and will be installed iu the near  future, this will increase the  production of the mill.  The Fernie Lumber Company  has finished logging and has  now 0,000.000 feet of logs in the  mill yard.  ���SOUTHEAST KOOTENAY LANDS  Reserve   Will   bo   Opened   Next  -   Month���And Licenses Granted  -    to Bona Pidc Locators.  The Vancouver World has  given publicity and credence to  a report thai the Provincial Gov-  ei'iiineni is arranging, to deal  with the lands in Blocks 4f��9o  and -IfiU-l," reserve lands in'  .Southeast ,Koolenay, in such,a  manner as to recognize as preferential the claims of Americans  m teres led in fhe coal and oil  properties'of these blocks. It  declares that it is the Govern-1" '  m'ent's intention fo issue licenses  during the monllroipMay. <-  it also stales that the govern1  'ment has practically 'arranged  already to granf licenses in the  favored tract to provincial representatives of Spokane, Seattle  and Philadelphia capitalists al-.  most exclvsively.  The only absolutely true fact  in the above statement is that  the govern ment will issue licenses .to prospect Tor coal and oil  in irhe reserve biocks'.durin'g 'the  coming niontli.   ,  There is no possible doubt  bin, "that tlie McBride government * inlends to deal with- the  Flathead valley, a'ud Elk river  reserve lands in the very best  interest ol tho country, and thai  all bona lida locators will be  honestly and faithfully dealt  with. J I is well known that the  executive is anxious and more  o settle the South-'.  and question  honestly, in the interest of the  people of this province.  When   the   time   'for    action  arrives, which will be the expiration  of   tho  year   in which the'  Dominion   government   can   disallow theact  of  the.   Provincial'  government   in   the   matter,  the  McBride  government   will   take  action   on   lines   that   will   safeguard   ihe   interests   of locators  and province.  lu the meantime, all kinds of  Grit fairy stories, reports from  disgruntled locators and would  he investors, are being circulated, who do not care how much  I hoy hurt the d'slrict and province, as long as . they can liud  something to placate their feelings and worry the government.
