One of the strong coal mining  companies which has recently  been incorporated and which  will take an important part in  the production of coal and coke  is the Imperial Coal and Coke  Mining Company.  Kaslo will grant a bonus of  $50,000 and ten years' exemption  from taxation to the Canadian  Smelting Company, if they will  erect a smelter in that town.  There is an ever increasing  demand for more smelter capacity in the Kootenays. and thi.s  demand will continue, for the  reason that thousands of men  are prospecting and developing  what is destined to be one of the  greatest ore' producing sections  of the earth.  .James Tizo transferred to Ira  E Fierce of Marysville, a one-  fourth interest in the Morning  Star mineral claim situate about  four miles from Sirdar and two  miles north of Duck creek.  ���crlain weird Took  lhat   ele ItfLTi, no insurance  Matters Political.

The  general impetus which has been  iii evidence in tho ...��.��� volopmoni  of the. mines since ISilS and  which reached its climax in 190"  was nor, deterred in I.IU'J. notwithstanding -the fact that the  preliminary figures com piled by,  the director of the mint show' a  decrease in tho gold production  of ��G,0'00,000. This loss i.s readily cxplainecl by the falling off  of the Cripple Creek output due  to labor troubles.  While J902' was. in. every respect a memorable year for the  mining industry--Tone.which witnessed the greatest amount of  new development work oyer  undertaken for a like period-^  yet 1903 will take rank as a satisfactory sequence to a ineinor  able year.  In the West, particularly in  Colorado, Arizona and California  operations, of the mines have  been hampered by labor difficulties, each of which found a local  reason to aggravate it. While  the dissension between the miner  and operator has been settled*in  California and Arizona, a considerable amount of ill-feeling  still prevails in this stale.  Aside from the usual skirmishing which follows the announcement of a strike of ore. several  important discoveries were made  during the year. Tonopah, Nov.  in keeping ,vith its'record, furnished tho sensation of the year  by the continued strikes which  were made at various parts of  the camp, increasing the area in  which it was originally supposed  that rich ore would be found.
