Canadian     Review    Misinformed  About Kootenay Lead Ore  Resources.  The Canadian Mining  Review  has  always   been   characterized  ', by independence and fearlessness  It earned this   reputation' under  the   regime  of   its   owner   and  editor, the'late H. % A, Bell;    it  is trying to sustain the   role, but  at limns the effort is too obvious.  ���In   the   April   issue just to hand  is an article purporting   to  deal  �� with, the   lead   situation   in this  province,   which,   instead of being the product of a1 competent  ���    expert   discussing   an    intricate  subject   from   personal acquaintance, is a curious volla podrida"  " compounded of some impressions  gathered from the Slocan Stand  ard.   a  soupcon  'of   Ihe   Nelson  Tribune, and smatterings , of  an  interview with the managers  of  tho Hall Mines and Trail   s'molt-  ' ers   who   have   recently  been in  '���Mohtroal, iii led in by   the   inferences, deductions,and guesses of  ��� ithe person who .wrote the article  Jt' would be (|nite easy to  assign  ' each portion of the article,, to its  ' source! even to the allotment -of  its mistakes:  but out of consider-'  ution for our readersi we refrain.'  In   fairness   to   tlie   Kootenays,  ^howevor, we, must  endeavor   to  1 correct the false impression tha'j  will be created if the dictum   of  the'Review is  accepted   without  question.      The   first   misstato-  jnent  is   that   the  deficiency   in  .tonnage  is   ''the   result . of   the  over-estimation of the. resources  of th" silver-lead mines  in West  '  Kootenay/'     pTJiis   is ,an    uu"  , warrantable  conclusion, and, in-1  ' deed, a pure  assumption.     Nor  is  the  statement  supported   by  tho , pseudo-geological    explanation' offered   in  the next paragraph that "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  high silver values.     Since1 that  time      there      have    been     no  fresh discoveries of  new  silver-  lead bodies which have promised  any  tonnage"     Is   this   either  true as a statement of fact, or as  an explanation of the failure  of  the Slocan to supply the estimated tonnage to the smelters?    As  to the first point, we will answer  the  Review's  editorial   from its'  own   news columns, in the sanio  issue.' The following paragraphs  ore  quotod  from   pp.  85 and 80  under the head of Mining Notes.  B.C.:"  "Tlie Reco mi no in tho Slocan  declared ' a March dividend of  ��19, t(-)4, amounting to 2 percent.  The total dividends paid by the  Reco to date amount to *5{2G,LMO.  "Tho Ottawa mine, in tho  Slocan district, has developed a  new ore chuto during the last  few weeks. This new chute contains six inches of high-grado  silver-lead ore, and it was found  on the west vein, which is now  called the 'Noble' vein. The  chuto was cut at a depth of about  ' 100 feet from the' surface, and  assay values are reported to run  as high as 850 ounces of silver to  the ton.  "Tho Skylark Development'  Company took over the Skylark  mine in November, 1001, and  since that date has oporated tlie  property so successfully that a.ll  expenses of milling and marketing  have  been   met.   payments  inents returned from - 1 GO to SJ00  ounces of silver and three-quarters to one ounce in gold per ton.  Today the first-class ore yields  from ��12:") ,1o, $140 per 'ton;  second-class, ironi *>3r* to .$40.per  Continued on Page ���'*���  , Among the' Craft.

WANT TO BUILD  Kootenay  Central  Built  the    Special    Road  This    Year.  to    be  arranging for the building and  extension of the St. Mary's wagon  road, a road up Elk,river, and  the Flathead valley road. The  wagon road up Wild Horse creek  will receive attention.  FERNIE- NEWS  KOOTENAY CENTRAL  Latest    Information   Says  Miles, are to be Constructed  Immediately.  Ten  From Oo!(]<>n Star.  The very latest report to reach  us,is fo the.effect tli'at ten miles  of the Kooteuay, Central railway  will be built this year and that  the same will/commence, in the  course of a few days. The report is a reliable one and, we  trust there is a semblance of  truth in'it. The Kootenay Central has received more frocc advertising, in the pnst'than would  pay for its construction and it. is  about time something was done  to  merit   the  confidence  of tho  *���  people: rlt has been frequently  announced of-late that the beginning of ootistructi^M operations was only a mailer of a  low day's; but tho days are, long  ones,aud have worn into months  and yet there has been nothing  done beyond location,"'which has  proved the feasibility of'6 the  road from one,end of the valley  to the other. We are, however,  informed that this time the work  will actually begin on the first  ten miles of tlie road from this  end, and now there is nothing  for it but to await developments.  The sooner something is done  the-better will it be for all concerned.  ,  From  Wilmor Oulu'-up.  Mr.' Win. Whyto, 'of Winnipeg, second vice-president pf the  Canadian Pacific Railway, while in the east recently was interviewed by the Montreal Star, from which the following is extracted asjt is of much importance to every person in this valley: , -  r "The prorogation of Lite Legislalu'/re of JJrilish  Cblt(inJ)ia, ,M'.r. Whyte asserted, had forced the eom-  pany %o*(tfofAiiidoih some work which it had contenb-  plaled doing in that province, for ihe reason that the  necessary legislation had not been, forthcoming.' On,e  of these works was the construction of the" Kootenay  Central Railway front, Golden to Ward iter, it, distance of'200 miles.",  "In this connection Mr. Whyte said, that tlie mining ind,'n,stries in British Columbia, were n.ow in. a  nbach belle/''position- than they had been- for some  years, the reason being that the prjee of'copper and  slicer are looking up." .  At first reading of the above it. might be thought, thai it is  "all off" with the K.C.R. But, hold on! Read it again! And  note that Mr. , Whyte speaks only of the Kootenay Central���he  makes if the special road to be started this year. That is most  important. It goes fo show that his company want to 'build this  road, indeed, are anxious to construct, it over and above .all other  lines it has now in contemplation iii this province. 'Then what  may wo expect this company to do? .Note that Mr. Whyte said,  "forced the company to abandoned".. Now when a company like  the C.P. R say they want to build, doesn't it mean'that the biggest  -and harde.iL part of the battle is*fought? - Tt certainly does mean  that, uncj. further, it means that they will carry it through. They  want to build a,nd they have now only' the details, tbM arrange. it-  may now-be considered with certainty that the. Kootenay Central  will be constructed through this fertile valley at no distant date.  .Wants to Bet $500.  One mail in this valley, Upper  Columbia, is said to be offering  to bet siifiO that const ruction on  the Kootenay Central will ��� he  started this year and others are  offering smaller amounts, but no  one will take a het. ��� Wilmer  Outcrop.

Of Interest to Those Engaged-in  the  Development of the  Mining .Industry.  In the kootenay Valley.  Farmers in the Kooteuay  valley have practically finished  seeding aud everything has been  put in tho best shape possible.  A large number of fruit trees  have been planted this year,  much greater than ,in any previous year.  The acreage in wheat, oats and  barley is large, a great deal of  now land being cropped this  year.  ,.A most welcome rain fell on  Thursday which was of great  benefit to the growing crops.

The contest is expected to be  fast and interesting as Duffy has  been anxious for a long time to  meet again the man who knocked  him out in four rounds and took  his "title ot white welterweight  champion away.

' ������  Tho Doherify���This property  is situated on Wild Horse creek.  Colonel Doherity still continues  to develop what he considers to  be one of the largest free gold  quartz mines in British Columbia.  . Golden Five group���A report  from Spokane from tho owners  of this proporty is to the effect  that development work will commence at an early date.  Stemwinder���It is roported  that the owners of this proporty  will soon put a number of men  at work developing the proporty  a wagon road will bo built to tho  initio. It is also said that  machinery has been secured and  will be shipped to tho mine as  soon as possible.  Is there anything in it.���There  is a rumor around that the Mackenzie-Mann mines on Huckleberry Mill will be consolidated  and a company formed to operate property.  There is nothing doing at the  Marysville smelter as yet, except  "hot air", but tlie big load stack  will be blown in about .June 1st.  A large amount of ore is being  roasted preparatory to smelting.  Shipments of ore from the St.  Eugene are very much on the increase each .month. The. mine  still holds the reputation as the  big silver-lead producing mine  of Canada.  Manager, G.   E. Henderson of  the Bull River Power and Mining Company" is expected at  Steele every day. Upon his  arrival it is evident, from the  preparations now being made,  that there will be something doing in mining matters at,Hull  river before long. ,  The Fort Steele mining district continues to be tho center  of attraction, and a considerable  number of old time prospectors  are preparing for a trip into the  mountains. ��� "  Mining men are unanimous in  the ' opinion that Southeast  Kootenay will be in the immediate future, upon the building  of the Kootenay Central railway,  a great mining district. More  attontion is being paid to development work,' "hi" the camps  tributary ,to Fort Steele than  ever before.  , Tt is reported that the Sullivan  mine will resume operations  about June 1st.  Common reports has it that  the Marysville smelter will he in  operation on or about June 1st.  Everything is running on a  most satisfactory basis amon��  the placer mines of Wild Horse  creek. There is plenty of water  not less than 5J,000 inches,  running through the big ditches,  and thehistoric old camp looms  up as one of the most productive  and prosperous placer minim"  camps in British Columbia.  An   excellent   body of ore has  been   uncovered    in   the   Ti��ei  Poorman gi;,oup of mines.  The profits of the St. Eugene  Consolidated Mining Company  for the month of March amounted to the enormous sum of $77,-  000, ��ays the Moyie Leader.  This is according tb"tlTc"fiiiancial  statement of , the company recently issued by Manager James  Cronin. This throws the profits  of any other 'mine in British  Columbia in the shade, and i.i  more than the ' War Eagle' and  Centre Star mines in Itosskuid  earned iii three months. The  St. Eugene stands,as the greatest silver-lead 'mine in Canada,  and has few superiors on the  American     continent. ft     is  shipping regularly over ICO tons  per day and has mammoth ore  reserves lo draw from. Three  hundred men are given ��� steady  employ moil t at wages as good, as  that paid in any other mining  district in the world, and the  most kindly feeling prevails between employer and employees.  Truly Moyie,is a wonderful mining camp, and as yet if is in its  infancy.'      '  '  Movements of Steamboats.  Steamer Ptarmigan arrived in  Golden on Tuesday night from  Wjndormere, where she was laid  up during the past winter. The  steamer experienced no difliculty  in making ihe trip, the water being at a yooil stage.  It is said that the steamer  North Star, which has been lying  high and dry on the gravel bank  near the. wharf,' has broke her  back. If this , is true, and wo  arc unable to verify it at present  it means a serious loss to the  Upper Columbia Navigation Co.,  who went to tremendous expense  in bringing her over from tlie  Kootenay river a few years ago.

The. little daughter of ,.J.  Campbell, Coal Creek, had a  very narrow escape from drowning on Sunday last.' She started  to cross the narrow two plank  footbridge on Coal Crook and  when on the way < over "the  springing and, swinging of the  bridge threw her off her balance  and she fell' into the wafer.

As to the second point, we  quote tin; manager of the Hall  Mines smelter, who evidently  did not prompt the Review on  this point. In an interview reported in our issue of yesterday  he said:  , ���"When the eight-hour law was  passed'and pi-ices dropped, leud  miners lost heart and stopped  developing ��� their properties,  thinking that the ore. gathered  from sloping, without the. expense ol' development, would  pay. Thus when the revival  came through tlie granting; of  the lead bonus and through the  increase' of prices, tlie lead  miners found themselves with  their ore in sight overtaken.,  often with little money in their  treasury to recommence development, and with a black eye administered to the industry owing  to the depression of tho'previous  years preventing the uiltux of  capital. Hence, while there was  plenty of ore. in their mines" in  the lower levels, there was, a  lack of money to extract it.  The resource's have not been  overestimated, the veins' have  not   been    exhausted,   the   ores  i  have not, changed so that the  zinc ores are the only ones; that  carry high silver vulues. The  resources are there; all that is  lacking is the capital to do Ihe  necessary development work,  and, that is coming. Nor is the  Roview any happier iu its references to the government, bonus.  We all know it's doe'p-rooted objection to ''pap',' in any' form,  aud" wo do not, (lemur'to its  dictum that "if thoro is an actual  deficiency of load ores in the  country, the question of smeller  rates, bounties or'of government  'pap' is entirely apart froni' tlie  solution of the problem." Hut,  since such is not, the fact, but  the very reverse,, perhaps ihe  Review in its omniscience will  tell the poor,, benighted load  miuers of the Kootenays how  they are to sell their product in  competition with the American  Lead Trust���the very i.rusl that  put them out of business without  commence their  advertising  for  this y*';ir, using a series   of  four  adverti-M-menis.      from       which  twelve insertions will   be   made.  The first in the series deals with  the  ash> pan- feature  of the furnace, and from a perusal   of  the  ad. the advantages of an ash-pan  in a furnace, and this one in particular,   can   be   readily   understood     The second ad describes  the- large,double   feed-doors, explaining the ease with which the  "Sunshine" furnace can   be  fed.  The third explains the necessity  of u water-pan   properly   placed  and    used,     while    the     fourth  covers the 'very   important  fact  that     the    "Sunshine"   furnace  burns   any   kind   of  fuel   und is  supplied   with    both ' coal    and  wood grates.  While the McClary Co. are  lame users of daily newspaper  space they do not think that an  advertising campaign could be  made successful  in Canada with-  ��� c  out using the high-class weekly  publications, oJ which they have  over one hundred on their list. .  ~*��  LANDS AND WORKS.

This is also an  answer to the somewhat didactic  and .oracular utterances of the  Review on the survival of the  fittest���that an industry that  cannot become self-supporting  had better die a natural death.  If this were put into practice  there would not be one industry  left in' Canada. After thirty  years' bonusiug aud protecting  of the^steel industry, its bouuties  have been increased last year lo  save it from destruction at the  hands of its great American  rival. And, the same is true of  all our industries. The fight is  an unequal one between a giant  and a dwarf, and as long as the  tremendous preponderance in  population and wealth which  now belong to the States prevails, and that country maintains  its protective policy, Canadian  industries can only survive by  following suit. It may be a disagreeable .necessity: it may  violate' theoretic conditions: it  may clash with economic ideas,  but it is business.���-Nelson  Tribune.
