Of Interest to Those Engaged in  the   Development .of~-the_.  Mining Industry.  The  unconscious   influence of  -   environment ha.s its, intlnence in  the mining business..  'According to mining statistics  compiled by the provincial government, Southeast ICooienay  was very much in evidence as a  ' silver-lead producing district.  Interest in Southeast lvooteuay mines, i.s promoted by the  result of legitimate and conser-  vative enterprise, backed up by  a. knowledge of the geology of  the district.  The possibilities of the mining  industry of East Kootenay are  better appreciated,, every year,  as the actual returns secured  from prior operations demonstrate the profitableness of the  venture. '  �� Promise of greater activity  than' ever before in the camps  around Fori Steele the coming  season is assured. In every  direction from town ' there are  indications to ��� show that the  coming season will see more  wor'.* done on old and new ��� pro-  ��� ��� perties than for years, and with  splendid result.-.  The   merits  of   the Bull river  1  iron mines will soon^ be   known;  it has attracted,the attention   of  Canada's largest oiJerating company. .  " "    ;      - y.   -  < The season  of  1904 is ended,  and   Southeast    Kootenay    has  ' doue ���its  share  of  development  ^ud-production; but uot as much  vir would have been done, owing  to a large shortage of water 'for  concentration.  There are a great many good  showings, of gold bearing ledges  on Wild Horse creek, partially  opened up, awaiting capital to  develop them.  Indications point to the ' renewal of active operations at  Bull river on or aboul March 1st  There is a= general demand for  Bull River Mining & Power  stock among local mining men  in Steele.  The working force at the  Sullivan mine is being gradually  incroased.     c  Satisfactory conditions prevail  at Kimberley. and good reports  from the North Star and Sullivan properties are of common  occurrence.  The  entire   Kootenay district  , is suffering now from tho   heavy  , charges of  iho   West   Kootenay  smelters.  The production of tho yollow  metal is on tho increase in the  Fort Steele mining district.  There is no reason to suppose  that the steady increase will not  continue during the year, as the  old reliable Wild Horse creek  properties will be in active operation, and the Bull River placers  will soon begin to add'to the  output of gold.  . Ten years ago, or in. 1895, the  North Star mine commenced.to  ship, and it ha.s practically been  inactiveoperation-ever since.  The Slocan Stair zinc will be  shipped by the Great Northern  railway. Hauling has commenced. '������. ."���'.'  The silver-lead mines of British Columbia have paid dividends  amounting , to 83,300,000 since  1892. '  The  Marysviile  smelter   will  use   the 'Huntington ��� Heberlein  process    for    treatment   of   its*  ores.  The Imperial Coal & Coke Co.,  which owns an extensive area of  coal lands at Fording River. B.  C, has found that certain of its  seams carry a good grade of gas  coal. "Tests show a 'production  of aboul ten thousandcubic feet  per ton. which should qualify  this coal foi- gas production  when the western country needs  gas.   Chinese New Year.  SILVER-LEAD MINERS'  ASSOCIATION  Friday, February 3rd was  Chinese New Year, and as such  was celebrated by every Chinaman in Southeast Kootenay.  At Chinatown, on Wild Horse  creek, some 40 Chinamen are en-  r  gaged in placer mining. ' lt was  in the old town where the big  celebration took place on Friday  evening when tho new year 2037  from the death of Confucius  commenced. ��� 0  r a ,  Every resident of Chinatown  kept open house, and. out of  curiosity  a   number  of   citizens  I r  visited old town, made New Year  i e  calls, just to see how the almond  eybd celestial entertained.  Wou'd Tax the Gross Recovered  Value of Ore.  NEW FURNACE FOR SULLIVAN  The Silver-lead Miners' Association,' ai a meeting held in  Nelson Jan. 31st formulated the  following resolution to the provincial government on the subject of the two per cent mineral  tax: . '     ,  (1) That a commission be appointed consisting of one mining  representative lor each district  with full powers to investigate  the subject of mining, taxation  and arrive at an equitable basis  on which-to'adjust the same.  (2) That in the opinion of  'this association a tax of �� of 1  per cent on the gross recovered  value of ore would be fair.  It is estimated that the proposed 'new basis of taxation  would have produced a revenue  of ��75.000 last year as against  ��65,000 collected under the two  per cent tax. " ,  possible to speak quite as highly  for during bis residence in Eng  land," several anxious questions  oetw'een the United States and  Great Britain have come up for  adjustment, and their settlement  has been due in no small measure  to his exertions. He understood  the English people, and he liked  them as much as they liked him:  and it should be some salis!action to him to know tliat ,h��* returns to his own country .having  helped to bring about a belter  understanding between the two  English-speaking nations than  has ever before in their history  prevailed." .

Another lead smelting furnace  with a capacity of 250 tons a day  is being built by the Union Iron  works here for the Sullivan  Group Mining- company of  Marysviile, B. C , of which  Charles Sweeny is president.  The 'smelter already has^two  furnaces, but the smaller will  probably not be used. - The  larger may -blow in within 30  days.-under the direction of F.  D. Weeks, an old smelter man,  who is iu charge.  The Union Iron works, is also  building a 250 ton converter of  the Haberlin typo to reduce the  amount of sulphur iii" Sullivan  ore. The    converter���which  should not be confused with a  copper converter handliug matte  ���will be used as an experiment,  and if satisfactory another one  will be installed. The Sullivan  smelter is being fully equipped.  The Union Iron works has  built five smelter furnaces, two  for tho Boundary Falls smelter,  two for the Sullivan aud one for  the Turk. In addition it has  done the reconstruction work  for the Northport and the  Granby smelter! ,It works about  li'5 men, under the management  of J. M. Fitzpalrick.  Canadian1 Skating Championships.

Feb. 4.���The English  press continues to ring with high  praise of Ambassador Choate,  announcement of whose intended'  retirement has been received  with a feeling of genuine regret  that- is absolutely without precedent. ' The. following paragraph from the current issue t of  "Black and While" is a fair  sample of the friendly sentiment  that has found expression in  uowspapers and periodicals  throughout the country.  "Ln   all   tho   long   line of distinguished men who  have filled  the post of American  Ambassador at the Court of St. James's,  none has enjoyed a wider  popularity than Mr. Choate, and none  will   be   missed    and   regretted  more  sincerely  on   this  side of  tho Atlantic when in the  course  of a few months ho presents,   as  he has decided to do,  his  letters  of recall.      Wo  in England have  come   to   regard   the   American  Ambassador as much.more  than  a diplomatist.     He is, in a way,  a public institution, and the part'  that he plays in our social life is  almost as active and intimate as if  lie were one of our  public  men.  On all sorts of ceremonial  occasions and 'celebrations the.Amer--  ican   Ambassador., is   invited    to  deliver  orations,   which   are;invariably models of   felicity,   and  winch are..unchilied by that   formal iiy   and   reserve   imposed by  tradition   on'   tin.'   utterances   of  other.diplomatists.      The  art of  apt and graceful speech ha.s been  cultivated ��� to   a,   high'   degree of  perfection    in- the   States,,   but  none   of   Mr.  Choalo's predecessors   has    excelled    him   in    its  practice;     and    his   withdrawal  from   our   midst will indeed be a  sensible   loss   to   many   sides of  our   social   activity.'       Of    his  qualities' as. a  diplomatist  it is  Washington, D. C, Jan. 30.���  Senator W. B. Heyburn of Idaho  introduced a bill in the senate  today authorizing the Spokane  International Railway company  ���to construct and ' maintain  bridges across the Pend d'Oreille  I river near Lake Pend d'OrieUe  and across the Kootenay. river  near Bonners Ferry. The railroad is being promoted by D. C.  Corbin of Spokane, to make a  connection at the International  boundary between Spokano and  the Canadiau Pacilic. The rivers  to-be "crossed are navigable, and  permission, to bridge^ them must  come from the, federal govern-,  ment.  LOCAL NEWS.  Fred   Bmmore, was   at   Cranbrook'Friday on business.  ,M.

Mr. Cameron, Fort Steele  Junction, was in town on business Thursday.  During these, winter days,  when mining is quiet, and snows  lie deep on British Columbia  hills, there is a revival of discussion among mining men' up  north over the perennial subject  of the 2 per cent lax on the  smelter returns of all ore mined  in the province.  That tax ,is a sore subject  among many operators, who say  it is the bane of the low grade  producers of the province. The  Le Hoi of Rossland, has made'" a  particularly bitter light and has  refused to pay 813,000 in back  taxort claiined by lhe province.  Asa, result, the'government'has  seized the mine for debt.  The'entire tax paid by producing mines is covered by that 2  per cent clause, and there is no  other charge on ,; surface  or      on       improvements. [f  a property i.s, not developed by  the outlay of at. least 8200 a year  it pays 23 cenis an acre, or $18 a  year.''for a full sized claim.  Under this ��� tax the entire  revenue paid tpuhe province by  all the producing lode, mines ih  it, according to the latest "reports, was about 860,000 a year.  Tlie' Coeur d'Alone mines, in  idaho, alone, paid c8l00,000 in  taxes last year under ,a law  which provides for a-'tax on net  values, after both mining and  treat ment expensesQu-e paid.  The Victoria Colonist contains  an. absurd funny " letter ...on the  2 per' cent tax in the form of a  letter by1'Missouri'1:  L "Bullcon" Wires '"Convivial." "  , Suppose a company in London  or Toronto with a much watered  stock and a, very poorly managed  mine in British Columbia is going to hold a meeting of shareholders in a few weeks, and the  directors are up against it to explain to their stockholders ho.w  it happens that they can not p.ay  dividends on the watered stock;  under such circumstances the  following code cable would probably   be  sent,  to   their Rossland  easily be seen when one considers the mineral output of the  country is about 815.000,000. and  the monstrous 2 percent tax on"  this industry brings in a revenue  to the province oi some 870,000,  oi- approximately less than \ of  1 per cent.  '���' -The board has much pleasure in stating that the health of  the statf in British Columbia has  heeu up to the normal, and from  present prospects the lawn tennis  reason will be a good one.  , ���������It is with much pleasure  your board also announces its  linn and abiding faith in the  future outlook of the company,  and it i.s with mucli diffidence,  they suggest to the shareholders  that an increase in directors'  fees commensurate with the toil  and labor they have undergone  during the past year is now in  order.
