MINING IN SOUTHEAST KOOTENAY,  On   a Stable Basis���Unusual  Ac-  . tivityin   Placer  Operations���  Qu'art'z Mining Looking Better  It is generally conceded 1 hat  mining in Southeast Kootenay  is gradually assuming a bettor  and more secure position tlian il  hdd in 100*J. and is now on a  more stable basis than il was for  the past two years.  Placer gold mining has held  its own during tho past year. It  i.s expected, from ihe extensive  preparations made during ihe  ,efirly season, thai the yield of  of gold will 'bo considerable  o larger than .that of L002.  In the Ft,orf Steele Mi nine  Division loss than 1,000 tons of  lead ore were mined in 1003. as  compared with '67.000 tons in  1000. ' Silver-lead ' mining in  Southeast Kootenay has been at.  si very low ebb "for .the past two  years: in fact, most of the lead  mines suspended operations, the  owners claiming they could not  . -bo'worked at a profit under the  then existing circumstances.  , The effect of the Domini on  bounty on lead ore has stimulated development und equipmenl.  The o St."Eugene is, once more ou  i the shipping list, and has a  force of MOO men employed. it  is reported that, the.output of  th'is mine will'be at least ."-.0,000  tons for the current year.  . AMONO   TrfE'l^A'CER,  MINES.   ,  [n  the   rich "mining region of  the  For;t' Steele raining division  x- preparations"a;re'tfeing ' made  to  . carry on hydraulic mining on an  extensive .scale. .    '*    ,,  The Gold River Placer Mining  Company have secured rich  gravel deposits on Bull' river,  and are now engaged in excavating . and preparing 'for the  foundation of the big flume,  which" will be LOxfi feet, and  nearly two miles in length, and  will furnish abundant water for  mining and industrial purposes.  Fifty men are now employed,  and it is expected that next  season the mine will be fully  equipped*and in working order,  one of the producing mines of  the'district. ,  ' On'Wild Horse creek five companies are engaged m placer  mining, one'lVuh'dred'meu. mostly Chinese, a reemployed. Pout-  large ditches, carrying from 600  to 1500 inches of water are in  constant, operation.' Twenty  inch steel pipes convey waler to  the giants. The gravel deposits  cm this historic crock, have  yielded large quantities of the  yellow metal in the past, and  continue to yield I'rom $20,000  to $1)0,000 every year.  ��� On Perry creek three companies are working, each on a  ���different'principle.' a Near Old  .Town the- Theis Company is  sinking a��� new shaft to bedrock,  work oh the old shaft having  been profitable. The Perry  'Creek'Hydraulic Mining Co; is  constructing a flume two miles  in length and- will yfork bench  diggings by hydraulic power,  commencing near the falls;  while the East Kootenay Placer  Mining Co., further up the creek  has taken in -a railway steam-  shovel With which to raise the  gravel from bedrock, and is now  perfecting the machinery for  handling the gravel ..between  steam shovel and flume.  QUARTZ   MINING.  Quartz mining is looking forward, and in the near future, has  expectations of great success  .Reports from the camps indicate  art abundance of ore, rich in gold  silver  and   lead.      The   Estella  group, on Tracy creek, will  probably, commence shipping  during the_current year. There  i.s no railway in this section, but  the proposed Kootenay Centra I  railway when completed, will  furnish adequate means of transport at ion for ores mi nod in this  portion of the district.

Fourteen Feet of Rich Ore Located at a Depth of 1,000 Feet!  One of the most important discoveries made at Moyie since the  St."Eugene mine was first located has been'made recently in the  finding of an ore body carrying  Higher values in silver than anything yet struck, says the Moyie  Loader.,  'This was first encountered in  making an upraise from the No.  I tunnel, the lower tunnel on the  S t..- E n ge n e, 1000 fee t in, and  about 1000 feet, below the surface." When first struck no information was given' out con-  corning if. till it had* been  opened, up, > and' it has now  proved to.be 1-L feet in width of  solid''gliltoring ore. It will be  several months ; before the full  value of the find is known, but  enough work has beeu done to  show'its great importance.  Tho force at the mine and concentrator is, being steadily increased and'there are now 280  men employed here. Ou the last,  payday ��2."),000 was paid out by  the mine' management and this  will be increased greatly the  next payday.  ,   Fraternal Meeting.  was  a  large  attendance  at the  school   picnic        Sports   of   al  - ii  kinds were participated in by all  of ihe school children aiid suitable prizes were awarded.

The smelter will start  with a capacity of 2."i0 tons. It  is being built especially for the  Sullivan mine, and whether we  shall take custom ore depends  'upon whether the output from  the Sullivan mine is sufficient to  keep the. smelter, running to it*;  full'capacity.

Buchanan, inspector of  lead bouiitios.ais in the cily and  is making- his headquarters at  the Strathcona. He says: "The  product ion ol lead at present is  at the rate of ;:!0,000 tons per  annum. J. do not know that it  will continue at tlial. rate for a  year, but if it did it -would make  30,000 tons of lead. This is  caused largely by the heavy  shipments of the St. Eugene  mine, which is producing ITiOO  tons of metallic lead per month.  This output was never exceeded  in this country but. once, and  that -was in 1U0O, when the output was Ml,000 tons, the production that year having been stimulated by the extraordinary  prices in London. The country  is'in a bettor condition to take  care of its lead than if has over  been."  In speaking of the amount  earned by the load producers under the bounty act Mr. Buchanan said the claims by the end  of June would aggregate*180,000  "Asked if-some claims were not  held up which were sent in between .Inly and October last year  Mr. Buchanan said ���'Thcroare  some such, but an amendment to  move all doubt as to the date  when the bounty payments were  to begin, has passed the  commons and the sena'.e. and F  presume we will have ol'licial  notice of it iu a few days."  ''How about the payment of,  the 40 per cent .that was withheld?" he was asked, b  "The act says that the government may pay the 10 per cent on  proof that all the ore has been  smelted in Canada.
