'  Profits of.&iS.OUO are estimated  to have* been earned by the Le  Koi mine in,the month of February. '  Lt is announced  that, the O.   P.  Li. will not demand freight  rates  in   advance jou^ ore  shipped to  ��� Antwerp. "���  The Great Northern railway  has decided upon an active competition,for Slocan ores, particularly zinc. 'Rates may bo expected to drop.  A  meeting  of lead mine owners has   been held in Sandon endorsing   the   selling  of surplus  lead outside  the   Dominion, and  ' yet retaining the  bounty.  The capacity of the Granby  . smelter at .Grand Porks will be  increased to -|,S00 "tons a day.  The annex will have eight furnaces instead of six, as originally  intended. '  ��� Southeast Kootenay people  are agitating the' establishment  of a smeltei'iat some point in the  Kootenay valley. That ��� the  smelter iwill" come jn time goes  without" question. '  ," G. O. Buchanan, dispenser of  the Dominion.lead bounty, says  he looks for a good year for t he  Kootenay  silver-lead miners.  Tom Roberts returned on Saturday last from Weaver creek.  ,. He reports tho Weaver creek"  placer miners ' as having done  well, making good pay1 during  the past winter.  Word comes of a 300 barrel oil  well in the Flathead district:  Botwee gold, silver-lead, coal  and oil Southeast Kootenay  ought to be ar very good country  to take right hold of and stay  with.  The. weather during the past  week has been very favorable  for commencing placer operations. There is no .snow except  on tho higher levels, and there  is an abundance of water.  At  Coleman,   Alberta; the International Coal   <fc  Coke  Co.,is  .   extracting HfOOO tons of coal per  month.   ,Tlie0 coal   is of a super-  ' "Tor"quality, and the entire output  '  is taken by the C. P.It.  , An order in council has been  gazetted, placing petroleum oil  on the free list when imported  by mining companies for use in  the concentration of ores. This  is a concession to the Kootenay  mining industry.  Much attention is now being  given to the "old gravel channels'" which abound in .Southeast  Kootenay.  Wild Horse creek sets a splen-  . did example for. the district dn  the matter of investment in   and  ''.''encouragement.of placer mining.  Indications  multiply   to show  that the coming season   will   be  the   most active one   known .in-  mining-interests in this vicinity;  . Fort Steele, for many years.

TO AID SILVER-LEAD MINING  Nelson Board of Trade will Support- Plea of Mine Owners.  . The meeting called to form a  Rifle Association was held'-at the  Strathcona hotel on the evening  of the 23th, Mr.   R.   L.   T.   Gal-  The Nelson Board of Trade  fully endorses the arrangements  arrived at; by the representatives  of thoflead mines and smelters,  and thai the,government be respectfully asked to make the  concessions asked,for up to June  .".Oth 1903, but such * concessions  not, to be continued after that  date. .''... , _        (  The resolution was only con  curred.in after satisfactory assurances had'been received from  the silver-lead miner's delegation,  and the smoltormen that all iuJ"  forests had been duly considered  and safe guarded in the memorial referred to-and after almost  numberless questions had been  put and replied to.  The delegation from the silver-7  lead Minos Association wa.s: A.  C. Garde of the Payne mine,  president: ."John L. Rctallack,  .lames Cronin of the St. Eugene:  N. Cavanaugh and George- D.  Pol tor, of Sandon. The smelter-'  men were W. Tfc. Aldridge. manager of the Trail smelter; D. W.  Moore, of the same plant, and ,1.  J. Campbell who spoke for the  Hall Minos smelter.  UKNISI-'IT  Tllfi   ST.   ICCOKNIO.   .  W. K. Aldridge. said:���"'The  new arrangements would bring  about the resumption of shipments that otherwise would not  be made and this will enable the  giving of be ft or rates. The St  Eugene mine would start, up on  slight* encouragement from the  government, and that what was  asked for would Lie granted. A  contract for ore had already been  signed hy the St. Eugene with  Ihe home smelters and all that  was wanted now was a friendly  intimation from the government.  The smelters under the arrangement would have all the ores  necessary lo keep them going,  and the St. Eugene had practically guaranteed tlie supply.  Much development wa.s now in  progress in other mines and Ihe  smoltormen had faith that the  supply of ore would be forthcoming. -."Rather tli an , take the responsibility of handling the  .whole available tonnage they  had given better rates lor a less  quantity. The rate' given tlie  St.'Eugene for the entire output  was higher than the one now  given the mine 'for..'the less  amount guaranteed." !    ���  The Kootenay valley is an  elevated region, most of the area  having an elevation of from 1,300  to 2,300 feet above sea level,  The  valley,of   the Kootenay  extends  from   the   International  Boundary to Windermere, a distance  of  about   130 iniles with a  soil   so  fertile   that   everything  grows   luxuriously,   and   where  many   happy   homes   are found.  Stock   raising is carried on lo a  large  extent and  is a profitable  business. ��� The  mountain  sides,  and    benches,   afford     splendid  grazing,in summer and   the  soil  is   so   productive   that   hay   in  abundance for winter feeding is  to be had for cutting.  All kinds of vegetables and  grain are raised, and the mines  furnish a constantly increasing  markefPfor produce of-all kinds.  As tine and well flavored apples  as can be found in British Columbia are raised in the Koolenay valley. The soil and climate  being just suited for apples and  kindred fruits. " ���  The mountain sides are heavily  timbered with pine, tamarac and  fir, which with the advent of the  Kootenay Central railway will  make lumbering a prominent industry., During the past year  larsre tracts of timber has been  secured by capitalists, with a  view of producing lumber on a  large scale as soou as the railway is built through the valley. '  There is an unlimited supply  of water, and- there7 is water-  power enough going to waste to  supply power to every mine and  lumbering plant in the district.  The climate for ten months in  the year is unexcelled. The  summer'is long and pleasant.   It  O 1 ' -,  is warm without being hot and  is always'healthy and invigorating. The winters are not r'.goi"  ous. no deep snowfall, and there  is no freezing blizzards like those  of Alberta and Manitoba.  MINING.  It is true that the mining interests have .. retrograded for  several years owing to the 'conditions of the silver lead market,  but they have passed their lowest ebb, and,at present the mining industry is rapidly recovering. Better railway transportation will give an added impetus  to all mines situated in the main  range of the Rockies, and in the  Windermere district.  The mineral deposits are so  extensive and the developments  of the district so favorable, that  with a favorable market for  siver-leatl ores, Southeast  Kootenay can with increased  transportation and cheap freight  and treatment rates, produce a  larger tonnage than any other  mining dislric-t in British Columbia.  Wild Horse Creek, Perry  Creek and Bull Liiver have boon  noted for their rich placer mines  It is claimed that on Wild Horse  within an area, of two miles,  there has been taken out  $20,000,000 in gold.  of tlie whole. The appropriation lor the Kootenay electoral  district is $12,000.  Hi quarters where reliable information may generally be  gleaned, it, is asserted that a  summer session of the provincial  legislation will be held, and lhat  it will ,be called for a comparatively early date.  Jn Prince Edward Island last  week, the Conservatives captured Second Kings constituency  by 00 majority. The indications  are thai a change is coining,  that, the electors are tiring of  Liberal rule and are disposed to  give the'Conservatives a, show.  DISTRICT MINING.  SOLD HIS RANCH:  W.
