HIS  MOTIVE THE  PUBLIC  WEAL.
To tbe I'ditur of the ADVANCE,
Sin—Iu your issue of llie loth insl,
ymi mention my mime in connection
with Ihe committee in lhe McMynn
shooting case, Iherefore 1 most ask
you lu publish Ibis loiter in your next

I suppose I oughl to Le grateful In

When asked in undertake Ihispositlon
I did so wilh a full sense of lbe re-
spinisiliiliiy ami alsouf llie unpleasantness of this ulliee, Iiiii. 1 looked upon ii
as it public duly which snuie one had
I dealakc.   Had Mr. Hood shot Air.
McMynn, the government and ils
officials could have been trusted to
make all necessary enquiries (ind lo
p.tnisb ihe offender, if guilty. How
long would it have been in Ihul case
baton* Mr. II.mil would have been in
irons?
In ibis Instance all lbe advantages
nre oo one side—position and menus lo
llgbl I be case, and tin excuse is needed
fnr Inking lhe weaker side.
How you ciin consider it "infradig"
fnr a jusl ice of lhe peace lo act, on ibis
cniiiiultlee I am unable lo understand,
II is generally considered lhat a mail
holding such a pasltion should lie the
first lo come forward lllld uuderlnke a
public duty; apd also thai he should
be ready in assist justice nil hor l bun

Tlie cuininit.lee consider il necessary

BUCK SAND ALL RIGHT.
For years pasl, and In fact ever since
placer milling bus heeu indulged iii, ns
far as it is known lhe cusluin has prevailed of tnrowing away llie blacksand
found iu Ihe sluice boxes when washing
for gold.   II would nuw seem, judging
from experiments tliat. have been made
hy parlies mining mi the Saskatchewan
river iu All-erla, that this practice has
to I he  mirier been uu exl reinely costly
one, ns by assays iiuule  of  the  black
nd laken from mines situated ou the
river above referred lo,  tin* slartling
resull  has been obtained of $208 lu lhe
of sand, whieh ml he was nut  hnwever
all in gold, u purl Inn beillgill plaliuiim,
iinolher iiielul closely associated  with
tlie guld nnd black sand found in that
region.   The Edu.onlnli Bulliliu a paper published near lhe scene uf the ex-
periinenls,  discussing  the    question,
puinls uul; ihal Ihu ordinary pay dirt-
found  on Ihe bars of lhe river runs
about $2.50 per Ion. 511 cents per Ion of
wbich only is saved, us a result of Ihe
throwing away of llie lilnck sand.
This represcnls only one fifth of lhe
value saved lo the miner, uuderlheold
cuhdi.inns of working the claim, and
as il is coinpuled only from lliree to
five Ions..t din could lie handled in a
day by nlie lllllll, it will be seen llle n-
nunieriitinn ..us hnrdiy consistent with
the Inbur performed.
Tlle discovery that lhe greuler portion of I lie gold value was being thrown
away, has caused quite nn excitement,
Ihe result beinglhatanuiuberufclaims
have been staked out nhd ground taken
up that had been ina cuurse of years
several times abiiiiduned.
This discovery lends alsu another
view In ilie theoi y as lo the deposition
nil be gold On tin* river bars, as funnel iy it was supposed lo be brought
down euch vein- ly the river und precipitated in the form of a tine dust.
i. hereas now it is held trnui the black
sund Itself il. Is set free by a milural
course nf disintregraliou,
What effect this discovery inuy huve
upun placer mining in generul it is
lund lu suy, ns it niny be found that In
snuie locilities al any rale the black
sand may curry only un infinilesiuinl
amount of gold, and would therefore
not be worth bothering with. Thai
such conditions govern however in one
region, naturally lends colorto ihe supposition ilinl. in oilier regions lhe sunn.
conditions may prevail, Iherefore it, is
in order iu suggest, in placer miners,
ihal for lhe future, il wuuld In- well lu
apply the assay test, to the lilnck sund
fniind in nny claim, su ns lu determine
ns to whether lhe full value wus being
extruded from il, hy the simple pn-
cess of separating the free gold found
in conjunction with it.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE ADVANCE.
Midway, B. C, March 22,1807.
REPORT OF  AN  EXPERT.
Hr. Willi" E. Bverelte, the well-
known ineldlliii'i.'l.st and liiinili|* engineer ia dnwn from Rosslnnd, says
llie Spiiki'siiuiii-Hevieiv, liiinging willi
Inni his expert report (in the value nf
the Le Km inine, nlsu his report nn the
mill lest of ten tons nf low grodenre
at the 0. K. llllll, These reports were
made for the Le K.n company, and
have just lieen delivered to the directors liy Dr. Everett.   The reporl says:
"The copper value in Ihe ore was
not. included in the I .-.sl. The crude
ore curried 12 pounds ni copper per ton
nnd Ihe cnncetitriites carried "ill pounds
per (on. The piopoi-lioti of cnnceii-
ti-ates saved was 1 Ion In *> 11 ii raw ore
treated, The value of gold iu I he ore
t,iiilings can lie easily reduced liy nil-
ditioiial concentrating rapacity,
"The U K stamp pilll has len slumps
the stamps weighing Hot) pounds each,
with 94 drops per minute uud six inch
drop. Tlle milling lime of eight and a
half hours equalled 20*10 Ions crushed
per Iiiiiii- per stump, using a iJO'ii.csli
screen.
"Tiie weight nf lhe sample which
wiih taken was lil,l)8,i pounds, or tlhuilt
KIJ Ions of the low grade ore fnnn llle
waste dump of the Le Koi mine, Every
teulh shovelful of ore was laid aside
(ind lllis sample was quartered and re-
quartered down In ahout 1IHI pounds,
nnd lllis was taken as ore sample for
assay. The largest samples of rock
were broken wilh a hammer so that
they could he quartered with the
smaller fragments of ore.
"Tiie entire mill has lieen well
cleaned and the stamp hloi-ks .were
liedded in clean sand, free from any
ore or amalgam; the plales weie carefully lirushed and washed before any
pari of Ihe ore to he tented was passed
Into th1* tindery. Tailing samples and
battery samples were taken every
30 minutes. Concentration methods
on the vanners were separately tested
l.y both the live and len stamp Imi
t.eries.
"The concentrates obtained equalled
11,001 pounds when freed from moisture,
5 0-10 of raw ore inlo one ton of concentrates. The amalgam obtained was 'Al
ounces 11 dwts. and 8 8-10 grains. The
fineness of the gold Inns was: (iold,
Oifl; silver, 311. The value of uu* goii
bar, with gold at $20.57 un ounce for
fine gold, and (H reins an ounce for Ilm-
silver, equalled »07.8j as the vnlnr of
the bar.
"The value ot the concentrates obtained was $40,21, saved 41 per eenl.
of value on the,plates aud 24 per ceui.
of the concentrates in the vauuers. "
* * The total per cent, of extraction
of the value contents nf the ore was 66
pereenl.
"With increased crusher capacity
and coarser screenage t.heie will be
less metallic gold on the plates, more
gold in the concentrates, and less in
ibe tailings.
" With the same crushing capacity
and tlner screenage Ihere will be more
metallic gold on the plales, less gold in
the concentrates and less gold In lhe
tailings, provided, however, that an
increased vanning capacity to saye the
line concentiates and shines were
placed below the present vauuers on
the second vaniier floor, ' * * The
mill service at, the 0 K stamp mill is
excellent in every detail.
"The success of 10J Ions of the low
grade ore from the Waste dump of the
Le Koi mine, actually saving 41 per
cent, in free gold and 21 jer cent, in
concentrates, is nf lhe grealesl Importance to the fiilure economic wellfare
of the Le lt»l Mining and Smelting
company, I would advise lhat llie
concetltrillion test lie repealed immediately, with not less than 10(1 tons
from the waste dump, just as il conies,
without any admixture of visinle sulphide ores. If this 100 Ion lest will
prove thai your $8 und $10 waste ore
will concentrate nud mill-plale iu proportion lo the Ill-ton tesl jusl made—I
have every iiielallurgiciil reason to
assure vou thai il will actually do so-
then a new era will have been established in ihe Le Koi mining camp, nnd
a tani*ihlc value given lo llieeniiruioiis
bodies of low-grade silicious ures in
Ilie said ciunp."

the work op Ihe Skylark eluiin in Skylark camp is progressing favorably, although the hardness of the counlry

the Montreal and Vancouver Prospecting syndicate have refused an offer of
4200,000 for the Gold Drop claim, the
property owned by them iu Green-

puny $15,000, and pi uliably $10,000
more was spent in development work.
It was upon Ihe Gold Drop thediuiuond
drill was used with such good effect,
some line veins of ore lieing proven to
a depth of nearly 2(H) feet. Evidently
the company think very highly of the
