deuce ui' th i lornier, ami aa;! ai'niiiet
nu proof ina the latter; but I think ihe
latter more probable, because I capni.l
conceive oxygen penetrating even a
lllni uf cyanide solution without nt
mn xidising lbe cyanide tu eyunale,
whereas in the other case, as suggested
In me liy my iii,-ml Mc. Ellis, lbe lias,
coin hydrogen may be ai once seized
bv lbe excess uf cyanide present and
iiniinnuiacal compounds formed, However, we ilu nnl concern ourselves
much with lbe reactions of pure gold,
hut as a matter of lac! wu cannot find
llaii oxygen plays any part in the
cyanide extraction uf gold from ores.
Wo have treated an ore with cyanide
with freo access of air, and then ;< par.
idle] experiment was done wilh boiled
Wilier, lbe In,llle   lilies!  In   Ihe stopppr,
with solution ami ore and the stopper
sealed, The extraction was the suine
in linlh cases.
We have sn fur only considered ores
which ace refractory from chemical as
well as mechanical causes, bin ores urn
frequently found in which the gold is
refractory from a purely mechanical
cause, which is lbe extremely line division of the gold, Tbe cyanide process
is quite ns applicable In (his class of
ore as lu nny other, These ores are
generally spongy anil nbsorbant, and
this we Iind enables us to dispense with
stirring the ore and cyanide solution
together, the same end being ueeoin-
plished by allowing lb" cyanide solution to pet colalo slowly lhrough the
mass—a clear saying in power,
The advantages claimed I'm- the cyanide process uver smelling and chlorination nre—as compared wilh smelting it requires no furnaces nnd no coal,
am! nn fluxes, and ibus tuny lie used
successfully in remote situations where
smelling is utterly Impossible .As
compared with ehloriiiution, cyanide
process involves im roasting, therefore
no furnaces and nu fuel. Moreover.
by the cyanide process,ores containing
lend, zinc, nr earthy carbonates, which,
ciiiiiiui be worked to profit by chloriniu
linn, may beas easily nnd profitably
treated as another. Fur chlorination,
nlioul 7 per coiil uf Ihe weight of the
ore iu be iieaii-il often has in be carried in ill 'e iii ibe form uf blenching

Mr. Malcolm MeCuaig left last Sunday for Vernon.
Mr. J, Monitgliiin of Camp McKinney

mill.
Mr, 11. 0. Walters is examining the
Deadwood, cuup, and has secured a
pond on oi|i! of the principal claims.
Admiral Shorls lias a bran new
Biigiuo iii his Imai on Okanagnn lake.
IJran and Shorls generally go together
anyhow,
Mr, H„ McLean bus been given a contract to finish up the work on the rock

.'- '. li, ia"^':,^".jfcl^.'j' .".'■ ,..,■—.,". .\sm
done the road will be complete between Camp McKinney ami Okanagan
Falls,
Tins season's wheat crop in Grand
Prairie averaged 1,800 pounds to the
acre.
2JThe Cariboo Mining Co,'s tennis are
busily engaged hauling out, concentrates to Penticton and returning
with freight.
Mr. 0, Scott McCrae's new house on
his ranch near Deadwood camp is completed and is reported to be tbe finest
bachelor's hull in the country.
J. Taylor and G. W. Rumberger are
sinking on tlie Vancoi)ver (Wellington
camp) and have got down twenty-two
feet.   The ore looks line.
Mr. Lafayette Spenser has laken up
a pre-emption on Greenwood creek one
and a half mill's west of the Summit
on the new road and is building on it.
Mr. T, Ellis is busily engaged rounding up beef steel's. These will be
driven to Hope, and will., iu all probability, bi' the last drive made this season,
Messrs. Dunn and W, McCormick
have built a cabin on Ibe Gem, Dead-
wood I'niiip, and intend putting in the
winter developing this claim. Tlie
Gem docs not belie ils name.
Mr. II. W. liayiiiei' of Kelowna has
been appointed agent for the Woodstock Wind-Motor Co,, of Woodstock,
Out. This firm makes one of the best
inlndinills manufactured in Canada.
The ditching, clearing anil fencing
of the meadow and the re-loeolion of
the road, wilh the Improvements,
gives to the locality around Spring
Station quite a presentable appearance,
Five hundred loi)s of good hay has
been put up this summer on Ihe
Haynes estate, yet, if the meadows
were properly drained, three or four
times this amount could easily be procured.
Arrangements are being made, we
are informed, to work the Cariboo
mine, Camp McKinney, all winter. A
diteli will be dug from Rice creek so
that water can be brought to the mill
in pipes without freezing up.
The salary of one of our worthy postmasters has been raised recently to
such an extent ($3.03 per month) that
the surplus of his income, if not invested iu an insurance policy, is liable
to cause him a good deal of worry,
trouble and anxiety of mind.
Mr. R. Walpole, who was up Boundary creek last week after big game,
went out via Grand Prairie on Saturday, The party went fifty miles up to
McCrae's peaks and secured three gout
and some good deer heads. They saw
cariboo but could not get near them,
Mr. L. Christian's road gang are now
working near "Jolly Jack's'' old cabin
about four and a half miles east of
Camp MeiCiniiey. They struck some
rather heavy ruck lately, but have got
through it, The gang working up
Rock creek have reached the top of tliu
bench.
.Mr. afi'B. Smith, provincial auditor,
paid a visit to Camp McKinney and
Osoyoos last week. Mr. Smith is a
shareholder In the Alice and Emma
(consolidated). This was his lirst trip
to this section of B. 0„ though he is
perhaps belter acquainted witli the
Province than any other man. in it—
especially with the far north.
The Eureka mineral claim, whicli
lies thirteen miles up ihe north fork of
Keltlp river on the west side of the
valley and is owned by Messrs. Jus.
Satilter, and Geo. Craik has the same
kind of surface showing as the Broun
mine iu the same section—a large iron
capping carrying a small percentage of
silver and copper with traces of gold.
Not much development work bus been
done on it.
An objection having been raised by
the U, S, authorities agaiust the mail
being carried from Oro to Osoyoos by
the stage running on this side, as their
contract with their own mail carrier
calls for his delivery of the same at
Osoyoos, it is possible for the future
that the singe whicli has been running
from Penticton to Ono will now make
its terminal point south at Osoyoos,
and not Oro as hitherto,
Three gentlemen fl'Pin town, U.S.A.,
nre now lining out at Penticton pre-
preparatory to trying their powers on
the large game of Hie country. Tlioy
Intend trying Mdntyre's mountain al
lirst for sheep, and failing in this locality, will proceed at once to the
Ashnola, and will also try the Siinilkaineen mountains for gout, and as Ibis
should be a favorable time, owing lo
the recent snow that has fallen in tlie
bills, good sport should he thejr reward.
Messrs. Jos, Soulier and Geo. Craik,
who own lbe Eureka claim up the
north fork of Kettle riyor, passed
through Midway last Thursday on their
way to Camp McKinney where they
are interested in the experiments now
being made with the mineral rod.
They reported a wholesale robbery
froii) their cabin on Mr, Mr, Cram's
ranch, It appears tlm.!, the latter went
down to Grand Prairie about a fortnight ago lo help at the haymaking,
and on his return to lu's place up the
river ful|tic| that- everything of any
Yilllio |n his palijil had been stolen,
Thpai'ljclcs carried oil' were one riding saddle, pne pack saddle, several

a wt J unusual event ina country where

The Okanagan river at Penticton is
still being crossed hy ferry boat, aud
when this is to be done away with is
Ihe question asked by many,

Osoyoos lasl week and we are sorry lo
learn thai his mother, wlm was laken
sick aboul two weeks ago, is sljll very
seriously ill, no improvement up lo the
present lime having laken place.

Mr, Sifodgrass has about completed
his conttact for (he cutting of timber
for lbe townsitc company al. Okanagan
Falls, and as soon as he gets through
wilh it lie will start culling for Ihe
new hotel which he contemplates erecting at ibis point!
It is understood that ore will be
crushed for outside parties by the
Strathyre Co,'s mill at Fairview, and
Mr. T. Elliott contemplates running
some through out of the Smuggler
inine. By its appearance il should pay
well, being a very free milling ore.
Tlie first party of the season to go
forwaifl to the Ashnola country after
big liorn consisted of James W, Low-
ther, Esq,, M. P. for Westmorland,
Ellg,, accompanied hy Mr. Ernest
Fiirquhar, They started from Ponticton
last week and went iu by way way of

Mr. W. T. Smith has purchased for
American parties the Mountain Hose
and Emma cli'iins from J. .Scholield
and the Minnie Moore .'rom John
Keough and Or. Bulls iu theSuuiniil
camp. A considerable portion of the
purchase money has been paid down.
It is, we understand, the intention ol
the purchasers to sink on one of these
properties, So as to make a thorough
lest of lbe extent of the ore body, Mr.
Smith is expected back shortly from
Spokane. The Emma and Minnie
Moore are on the main lead and (lie
Mountain Hose on a side vein.
