BIG SALE OF LUMBER  y  Winnipeg   Dealer   Buys   Nearly  ���   2,000,000 Feet at Moyie.  One of the largest lumber  deals ever made in Southeast  Kootenay was put. through last  week by H. Cameron, manager  of the Moyie Lumber & Milling  company, when ho sold to ii. ''.  Graham of Winnipeg, 1,800,000  feet.of lumber. The lumber will  b" shipped" out of the yards as  fa,st as the cars can be  loaded aud taken away. This  practically disposes of the stock  of lumber on hand.  The sawmill and timber limits  of the L. '& M. Co., have been  taken over by ETPCameron and  A. P. Stephenson, and they* are  in a position to make a deal ���for  the disposal of the entire holdings of the company. -If a sale  is not made within a reasonable  length of time they intend to  operate the mill themselves.  Bids on Scout Ships. '  closed to- the free coinage of  ���silver on April 10th. President  Diaz has issued a decree for the  reform of the monetary system  authorized by congress in December lasi. Thedecree establishes  tho "'peso," or "silver dollar at a  value of .71 cents gold, and the  theoretical unit of the Mexican  currency ' is defined to be tho  dollar or -'peso" of 7.r> cents gold  An' important feature of the  decree is a provision for a reserve exchange fund which ut.  first will consist of si0,000.000'  or 15,000.000 and may be increased! The original plan did  not provide for the immediate  establishment of this fund, but  it, is now deemed wise to start  with one , simultaneously with  the beginning of the new mono- j  tary system.  GUGGENHEIM'S IN THE  NEW   COMBINE-  American-   Smelters'   Exploration  Co. Elects Its First Board  -���=        of Directors     =^-  DISTRICT  MINING NEWS.  Washington, D.C.. April 15.���  Bids were open at the navy department, today for the construe  tion of the three scout ships  which congress authorized., last  year. Considerable interest is  manifested in the construction of  these'ships as they are designed  3to possess greater speed than  any other vessels' in the navy,  save the little torpedo boat de  .stroyers.�� The cofct is limited to.  (Ji 1,800.000'each. , ���  President Diaz Attends.  Of Interest to Those Engaged in  the   Development of the  Mining Industry.      t  City of Mexico, April 15.���The  formal' opening and' dedication  today of the new building erect--  ed in the Mexican capital by the  Mutual Life Insurance Company  of New York was dignified by  the presence' of President Diaz  and a .number of0other leading  men of the republic. Others in  attendance included Charles R.  Henderson, Dr. G M. Grant,  Robert A. Grannis; Jr., and a  number of other general officers  of the company who came from  New York.  The"new"building cost Si,000,-  000 in gold and adjoins the magnificent postoffice, erected of  steel and stone and constructed  ou American methods.  And Why?  Nowadays the people of South-  oast Kootenay talk about the  Kootenay Central Railway, the  , Corbin road, and a road into the  Flathead. En a casual manner  old timers note the past, present  and future conditions of tho K.  C.R.  What's the mattei; with the  Provincial government. and  what are the promoters of the  K.C.R. going to do, and why?  Because it could not give  any  assistance, a number of members  not being in line with the future  progress   and   development    of  this district.     Build  the.road,���  because it   is needed to develop  the   great   Fort  Steele   mining  district.   ' Build   the   road���because    the     promoters    always  wanted to���always expected to���  always  planned   on    doing   it-  sometime--and   it  has'now. been  made  so  easy,   and so enticing,  by  a  bonus  of  &3.200 per mile.  ��� that-the promoters cannot afford  to iose the sum of ��595,200. with  a  possibility  of getting 40% additional, of a cost of over 815,000  per--utile of construction.  Placer gold is not the only  attraction that Wild Hors<_ creek  has to offer. Several silver-lead  properties are being developed.-  The outlook is favorable for  the Bull River company to start  operations about May 1st. '  The Sullivan group of mines  has reduced its working force  owing oto the large amount of ore  oil hand. As soon as the smelter  is in operation, work at the mine  will be resumed.  '    ' ' '  St. Eugene���cThe groati "showing of silver-lead ore in this mine  continues to be the chief topic of  conversation among mining men  Its production; wiU'earn for the  owners this month ��25,000, fully  one-third of the Dominion lead  bounty.  The' Bull, river group of iron  mines has been developed to an  extent that enables its owners to  crown grant. 30 locations.  'Quite a bit of work will be  done on .several properties on  the east fork of Wild Horse creek  this year.  The immediate constraction of  the Kootouay Central railway,  and the development of a,largo  number of rich prospects in the  vicinity of the town, of Fort  Steele, will turn, the attention  of mining people of British  Columbia this way by the thousands.  James Nelson and Kris Kohle  are. now engaged in doing the  annual assessment work on a  copper property near St. Mary's  Lake, p !" ���       ,. ,  Frank .Tracy with, a .small  working force has commenced,  development;work on a group of  copper claims near the head of  Whitefish crecjk.  John .!?. Larsen is running a  tunnel several hundred feet; to.  reach an old channel on Wild  Horse creek. The - gravel coming out of the tunnel is rich  enough to pay all.expenses.  From present indications the  Sulliya,n group of .mines,, near  Kimberley,* will soon develop  into a, producer of great value.  The work of preparing for beginning operations, this season,  on Wild Morse creek is going.on  actively in all the placer mines.  New York���The American  Smelters' Exploration company,  organized and incorporated ��� in  New Jersey a few weeks ago,  elected a board of. directors and  other officers today. The board  is composed of men connected  with the American Smelting &,  Refining company and with the  United Lead company. E. \V.  Nash, president of the smelters  company, is presidenfof the new  company, and Barton Sewell,  president of the United Lead  company, which is largely controlled by the smelters company,  is vice president. The directors  elected consist of Daniel Guggenheim, E. W. Nash, Barton Sewell. Murray Guggenheim. A.  R. Eilers, E. R. Guggenheim,  Simon Guggenheim. Edward  Bush,' E. L. Newhouso, Karl  Eilers, S.

After a long struggle the government decided lo recognize the  rights of the prospectors and the  way is now open for the full  development of the resources of  the country and T have no doubt  that the result will justify the  expectations of those who have  in the past visited the district  aud have made examinations.  The country is easy of access,  being only forty miles from Melton, Montana, on the Great  Northern, and the same, distance  from Eor.nie on the CP.lv.

Mexican Silver.  An oil expert by the name of  Win, Forrest from Petrolea has  this to say about the oil regions  near Fernie, says tho Ledge:  When 1 was in,the Flathead  about five years ago I met a  party of Amoncans under Professor Hermann, who had just  returned from the oi! fields of  -Russia. Professor Hermann  said then '.hat Canada was not  aware how valuable a region she  possessed and that Pennsylvania  never presented as promising  indications of oil as the Flathead  valley did.  When I tirst went into- the oil  country I found it difficult, to locate the exact region described  by Dr. Selw.\n. After searching  the district for a few days 1 detected the smell of the oil and  following up the scent came fo  the oil springs-two miles a.way  from'my, starring point. Tlii* oil  which i. found was on Sage, creek  and Kis.h e-ria crock and on another unnamed creek between  them, and soon Phillips creek,  ten miles away', all these streams  being branches of the Flathead  river. '    '���     ���  I have been iu close touch  with the oil regions ever since,  making constant trips into the  country, going in   repeatedly   to  The Russian fleet, including  seven battleships were steaming  north on April 12.  Frank Morse, of the Grand  Trunk Pacific, only wanted  15.00,0 acres" per.

The Japanese will have more  than 1,000,000 men in the field  by Autumn.'with a proportionate  increase in artillery and cavalry.  Much railway talk has been  going on in town during the past  week, and but little information  is obtainable.  For the information of its  readers Tuk Prosp^ctou pre-  sen is the presem condition ot  the Kootenay Central-railway,  under which ils charter is held,  , The Dominion Charter was  assented 1o on May23rd, 1901,  and sect ion'7 reads, as follows:���  The Company may lay out. construct and operate a railway of  .the; gnagc of four feel eight and  one half inches/as follows: ���  (hi Emm Fort Steele to Elko  or some, other convenient'poiut  on the Crow's Nest Railway be^  tween Elko and Wardner, thence  on either .the "oast or west side  of Wigwam River, or by the  most convenient route, to the  international boundary line.  lb) Prom For\ Steele to  Windermere, by either the east  or, wesl side of .the Kootenay  River.' thence to' the town of  Golden on the main line of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, and  may build aiid operate ;-such  tramways in connection therewith, noi exceeding in any one  case ten miles in length, as are  from time to time authorized by  the Governor in Council.  .  not  to  exceed   four  years from  the said first day of August.  From the reading of the above  Act, ii will be seen that the" K.  C.R. to save".�� their [.'.subsidy,  granted in 1903, must .commence  construction before August 1st,  1905. "   ���  K.C.K. Final Deoision.  Section  The Smelter Bluff.  As has been expected for some  time, the smelters at Trail aud  Nelson havo closed down their  five lead stacks, because of their  inability to secure ores. The  smelter people state that tho  Slocan mine-owners are not  living up to their agreements for  supply made when fhe lead  bounty was granted; bin there  is another side to the story, and  that is the feeling aroused by the  iniquiious .sliding scale ot  charges for treatment inflicted  by the local smelters, which bear  so hardly upon the Slocan ores  It is strange, too. that the St.  Eugene mine should have been  .allowed to. send 2,100- tons of  lead concentrates to Europe, last  month instead of being'"kept at  home for local treatment. -There  is something wrong somewhere.  and l lie. .truth will oiif one ,of  t'iose days. , In the meantime,  what a condition for the mining  industry'to .be in!���Slocan   Drill.  and Mrs. Lucas were visit- I  tlic residence of   Mr.   a,'rid  . .1.

In 1904. the above section was  repealed and Ihe following substituted therefore:���(1) Section  12 of chapter 71 of the statutes  of 1901 is,repealed, and the following substituted therefor:���  :'12 Tf the construction' of the  railway is not commenced, and  fifteen per cent ol the amount of  the capital stock is not expended  there, within three years from  the passing of this Act, or if the  railway is not finished and put in  operation within six years from  tho passing, 'of this Act, the  powers conferred upon the Company by Parliament shall cease  and be null and void as respects  so much of tho railway as then  remains uncompleted.

Much railway talk has been indulged in throughout the past  A"L-ek and . speculations as to  when construction, will-'be com-  ���nonced .are rife. Some have  even offered to bet hard cash aud  one man is said to have offered  ,23 to *] that the contracts will  be let and construction, started  by June 1st next. And so the  talk runs, yet very lii tie new information has been gleaned on '  the subject.  However, The Outcrop learns,  on , what     we     consider    good  authority, that the final decision  of. the  C.P. R.   willj.be reached-  early next week, when it will be  fully determined' whether, or not  construction   on   thejr;Kootenay  Central    Railway   through   this    .j  valley   will   start this year, at a  meeting to be held in   Montreal.  So after all'there is good reason  for  the  people  here to talk and ���"  speculate   on    this    interesting,  subject,   for  have  we  not been  O '    .

And as the bonus is a substantial  one  there  is  no  doubt but that  the provisions will   be  complied    '  with,   even  should  the road not  be .started immediately.  The very latest news from  Golden is that Chief Grant of  the survey party , has been  hurriedly summoned east, and  here if is thought be has gone to  lay his report of his survey bo-  fore the meeting iu Montreal  next week.  Erom the last issue of the  Golden Star the- following is  culled:  A representative of The Star  this week' had an interview on  this all-important .matter with  parties known to be able to  speak with authority and from  what transpired in the course of  conversation we gathered that it  is, after all. the intention of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Co. to  begin the construction of the  Kootenay (.'mitral Railway in the  immediate future, notwithstanding all reports to the contrary,  and carry it to completion, if  possible, before the snow flies  again. Our informant also says  the estimates, of'the company for  the curreni year include an item  sufficient to cover the cost of  construction of the entire line  from Golden lo Fort Steele.  Couple this with the present activity openly displayed around  the C, P. R. yards hoi e .and it  would seem'to convince anyone  that tlie assertion contains more  truth fha.ii poetry. However, we  have every reason to believe  (hat, tilings will shortly- assume  definite shape.  Col.
