For  ���years it 'was well-known that  this big belt of tie-timber existed and-hundreds-of men- passed  it by fully knowing its wealth',  and left it to await the, coming  of a man of greater lore-sight  and the necessary enterprise to  turn it into, hard cash, while  they stood idly by criticising the  wisdom of such attempts.

DISTRICT  MINING NEWS.  Of Interest to Those Engaged in  the   Development of  the  . .        Mining Industry.  A glance at the list of dividend  paying mines in the Kootenays  is evidence that it pays to mine  for metals.  Advices from British Columbia, under date of the third instant  inform us thatthero' is such a deficiency of lead ore at tho present  time as to occasion the closing down of the lead'furnaces   at   both  Nelson and  Trail.     The  information   wo have received is to the  eltect that this is the result of the over  estimation  of' the  silver-  j lead mines in West Kootenay; there is no hint, that   there   i.s  any  (deficiency whatever in the great silver-lead mine of the country in  i "  I East Kootenay. " ���  I .  The  St.   Eugene   mine,   under   the contracts and agreements  which were entered into some twelve months ago. undertook to  supply any deficiency (up to a certain figure) which the home  smelters needed, having the privilege, of shipping abroad such  amounts, as were not needed by tho local smelters. ��� We are informed that the St. Eugene Company i.s keeping its agreement as  to  the specified  amount to be sent to Trail and Nelson, but that    ...      this amount is ribt sufficient to keep both stacks iu   operation, and  Gravel mining in  the,vicinity ,. , ��� ,        , ,        ,  of Wild Horse creek i.s showing jT,haL a 'arger amount cannot be obtained from "East Kootenay by  great activity at the present,i reason of the big contracts it has entered into with European  time. , e j purchasers.

' The' managing directors and  shareholders of the Golden Five  group of mines, held a meeting  at Spokane on May 2nd. The  object ofr the ,meeting was to  raise" the necessary, capital' to  develop the property.  ,  , Recent developments indicate  permanence, and it is probable  that.the Sullivan Group ,of mines  will bo one*"oi' the greatest, producing mines in British Columbia, iu the near future.

OF INTEREST TO MINING MEN  Validity   ot '"Advertising    Out"  Process Questioned.  very period when tho Government, bounty was granted on lead  ores, it was pretty well understood among the knowing oues lhat,  the lead properties of the Slocan had either been gutted of their  lead ores, ,or that the silver values were gradually entering into  the zinc blende of the mines, so that the zinc ores were the ones  which carried the h'.gh silver values. Since that time there have  been no fresh discoveries of new silver-load bodies which' have  promised any tonnage, and the.situation'looks; at first glance, to  be somewhat serious.' Many of the old stand-bys in tlie Slocan  country are either exhausted or closed down, or furnish principally 2iuc'ifero"us pro:    ,.

The point involved is the  validity oi the procedure I nown  as ������advertising out," a partner  who is delinquent for "his share  of assessment work on a mineral  claim. The question has never  been finally settled by the provincial ��� courts. Its importance  lies iii the fact that if the'procedure i.s hold invalid,' hundreds  of titles will be impaired.

Starts 22,000 Railway Ties.  It is doubtful' if  there is'an-  other man in Kootenay   who has  taken   up  as  many  and    varied  ,  enterprises as Capt. F. P.   Armstrong and carried them through  His  chief  business   is   running  good   steamboats   on   Columbia  river, but every fall when   navigation closes tlie Captain can be  depended   upon    to   embark   in  some   new. enterprise.      Ho   is  over   of ' a   cheerful disposition  and is certain sooner or later  to  reach his million   mark.     Moreover,   everyone   who knows him  and his work wishes him success  Last  fall   the  Captain made a  start in cutting railway ties   and  our readers have already   heard  of his unique plant and flume  to  deliver  the   ties  in Windermere  lake.       Last    Sunday   a   large  crowd gathered at  Athalmer   to  witness   the  opening of the dam  that stopped Columbia river and  raised the lake nearly   two feet.  When the dam was opened   they  saw  a boom   of  22.000   railway  ties turned loose in the, river  to  be  carried   by   the    current   to  Golden  and   there  delivered on  cars, being but the beginning of  ai   work  that  will   be continued  for several years.   Captain Armstrong is to be.  congratulated on  the success of his mill enterprise  and   also   the   forming   of   the  Windermere.Lumber Co.,   Ltd.,  to carry it through.     It has not  been  all   smooth   sailing for the  Vital  to the best development  of local mines in the .vicinity" of  Steele  is  the  necessity  of ade  quale   railway  facilities  for the  transportation of ore.  ���  Local mining development,  without railway transportation  for ore, has been long'euough iu  progress, and,all that can be expected has been done. What is  hoped for is the immediate construction of the Kootenay Central Railway, so that mining interest t.'ill not be permitted to  wane and energy diverted else-  whore.  Bull river district is coming  iuto prominence as a placer  camp, and the iron mines in this  vicinity are opening up most  favorably.  A small force has been put to  work on the Mystery claim  which is located on Whitefish  creek.  June 29th is the date selected  for the visit of the Institute of  American Mining Engineers to  the Kootenays.  Over 2,000 inches of water is  now passing through the big  ditches on Wild Horse creek,  and placer mining -, is in full  swing.  The only mining shares, in  Kootenay. for which there is any  demand are St.' Eugene,  Canadian Gold Fields, Centre  Star aud War Eagle. -The. two  former are quietly being bought  on the reported good showing  being made by the first two, and  many people think the position  of the two latter will be improved by the amalgamation of  the Le Roi companies.  ard hasi recommended an agitation on smelter charges, and the  matter has been taken up by one or two of the other papers in  British'Columbia, notably the'Nelson Tribune. It seems to the  Review that the points made by the Sandon Standard are made  without knowledge of the complete facts in the case, and which  have been published during the last twelve months; but apart  from that, and irrespective of any legitimate or illegitimate movement to obtain bettor rates for smelting, tho closure of the lead  stacks seems to us a point to the existence of other conditions than  those having reference merely to smelter charges. if there is an  actual deficiency of lead ore in the country,' the question of smelter rates: bounties, or of Government "pap", is entirely apart from  the solution of the problem. ,,   ,  British" Columbia   mining  has' had  enough to stagger under  during  the  lasv three years, owing tothe apathy of tho investing  public,   and  the  bad  odor into   which   the   whole   province got,  through the selfish misrepresentations and actions of the   boomers  who flourished from 1806 to 1901.    The Review  is  also   insistent  iu taking the ground that any industry dependeut for its existence  upon   the- supply  of  Government  aid,   either   in   the   shape   of  bounties or duties, had better be left to, die a natural   death,   inasmuch a.s   its prolonged  existence is at the expense of the rest of  the'eommunity, and inasmuch also as no amount of artificial -'feed  ing cau make tho infant strong and lusty.      Personally, we do not  think  that  the   miners  of  British Columbia, have ever given due  recognition (cortainly not publicly) to the enormous aid and assistance which their industries have received from the   two   smelting  corporations which have met the minors more than   half   way   for  the las', nine or ten years.    In this respect tho Tribune is perfectly  correct in its reference to both the Trail and the Nelson   smelters.  C.P.R. directors have known, for many years, that  the operation  of  the Trail   furnaces per se  were  not. profitable,  and   that the  smelting  corporation   was  kept  alive   through the advantages it  offered to the  transportatioTi-'company.      Shareholders,   or  even  readers  of   the  annual   report,   of the Hall Mines, Limited, have  known thai the operations of the two stacks of that company were  not attended with any dividends to the shareholders.      We  do not  here deny some of the statements made by the  Sandon  Standard,  but  we  are  inclined   to   the opinion that such statements are not  calculated to revive the industry, or to encourage  the   investment  of new.capital in tiie .country. -  , British Columbia must work out. its own .salvation in the  matter of its mines. Like aHother mining countries of any prominence, it has experienced its period of boom at the.hands of irresponsible adventurers, who have taken ���therefrom In a. few* years  the legitimate profits of many years; and have left, to their successors in the various corporations that have been formed only  legacios in the shape of deficits, bad properties, and a generally  offensive odor about all mining ventures in that country. Given  a few years of wholesome, living and.good house-cleaning, and the  disagreeable odor mentioned will have vanished, and   the   natural  compressor from' the Jenckes  Machine Company. ��� ��� This  machine is to be shipped, installed and in running order by  the first, of August.' This additional equipment w.il! provide HO  drills, there being now in use  compressor capacity for 20 rock  drills.  Moyie Leader���Six muckers,  F. Kelly, Fred Ege, P. Hartigati  Chas Held ing, Otto Wester and  R. Sheridan, employed at the  St.^Eugone mine pleaded guilty  and were each lined &2.50 and  costs yesterday, (Friday, April'  28; for���violating tlie Eight Hour  law. The case was tried before  Lewis Thompson, justice of the  peace.   > ' '  Ou the rith and 9th of March  these men. were working in the  shaft level, There was a rush  of work aiid they w'ero asked to  work overtime in order to have  the muck cleared away for the'  shift following. The latter were  reported to the mine inspector,  who in turn caused the arrest of  the men. There is also a heavy  tine for a company'violating this  law, and the case against the St.  Eugene company will come up ���  later ou.

It is further  stated tha'j surveyors who are  running the proposed line west  of Spokane have received orders  to rush tlieir work and have  everything in readiness to begin  grading not later than June 1.  The theory advanced is that  the western-outlet-for the Corbin  road is over the 'Kettle Valley  line, sometimes denominated the  "Hot Air" road. If is said today  that the road has a new name  and' will   be  called the Spokane  Win.

'Phis   is   a'   high   grade  silver-lead proposition and from  previous shipments   the   smelter  returns  show   that  the ore runs  over -iJIOO to the ton.

So  soon   as  conditions will permit Mr. Haupt  intends  employing   more   men   and   opening up  fhe   group   by   a  tunnel   at this  lower discovery.
