In connet'lioii with the above statement we are also told llle money for
lbe building of lbe Columbia and
Weslern is now forthcoming, und thai
next spring Hill see ihe work of cuu-
j struct ion on lbe roud commenced, We
nie snuif.yhiii sceptical upon this
point, and yel. there may be suine
liulli in tlie rumor, seeing lhat the
recent U, S. elections may huve hud u
marked influence upon European
financiers, as alsu ihut lhe 0, I'. II.
may be awakening to lbe fuel I bul if
lhey or some one iutiinalely connected
willi ihem, docs not lake advantage of lbe presenl Ilebr/.e charter,
there is every prospect of lhe contiol
suppose., but rather thai the company
may lie brought to recognize its own
hest interests, and Ihe interests of
those who Ion certain exlenl. are die
pendent upon them.
800,000 shares, representing the capitalisation pf the company, 250,000 shares
only of treasury stoek are on llle lour-
((at, iniil Ihese are being quoted ut
present at 111 cents pur .share. It isin-r
our calculation upun the market value
of lbe slock, Ibis gives lo lbe inine n
valuation of isail.oiK). Should Hie
present rate of prolli lie kepi up it will
lie seen it would lake only ai.oiil ihree
and a liulf yen rs tor lbe mine to fay
for itself, or iu oilier words to earn a
sum equivalent to tin- open market
valuation now placed upnu the properly. Ten rents n share for ninu
llionlhs is equivalent lo l.'i.l cents per
share per nullum, ami as the shares
an* quoled at III cents, this represents
ii pii-Hl of nlioul '62 per ran. per nullum ou Hie capital invested.

To answer Ibis query is pel Imps

A PRACTICAL AM) SIMPLE METHOD
of matting sulphide ores, sueh ins nickel,
copper, gold und silver ores, in localities
where lend ores and fuels are scarce and almost unattainable, our pyritic, water jacketed
Matte .Smelter has been recognized wilh highly
satisfactory results, and has been thoroughly
tested on various pvrilio, sulphide and arsenide
ores, in capacity ol'i to Nl tons of ore per day.
It Is the mosl practical! cheapest, and simplest
method of gold und silver ore mailing and con*
"Mtrattug that is known to-day.
It requires no extraordinary skill, no lead
ores, no fluxing material, and no fuel of any
kind for (lie smeller afler it is started. The
sulphur in the ore is its natural fuel only, aud
its cost has no comparison with any ot her process of concentrating.
Wc are prepared to furnish any size or capacity plant complete to substantial mining
