REPAIRING A SPKCI'LTY,
VERNON, B, C.
So much interest has hecn manifested among mine owners in this section
in the litigation involving the patent
rights of the MucAi'tliiii'-Foi'i'CSt Process that we print below the decision
in full as handed down by the English
court, The owners of the patents do
not acknowledge themselves beaten
however, and propose to take the case
to the Oqurt of Appeals, und if beaten
there to the Holme of Lords, The de*,
cision of Justice limner reads as follows:
"Since the conclusion of the arguments I have rciiil through the notes of
the,evidence, and have further considered that evidence and the different
points argued by council, anil in the
result 1 am continued in flic opinion
Unit, this patent cannot he sustained,
The invention claimed in the patent
is a very simple one and the cluim very
comprehensive. It is for the appllca-
lien of a solution containing cyanogen,
so as to dissolve the gold and silver
contained in powdered ores. The gold
— for I need not further distinguish
the silver — is then to be recovered
from the solution by any of the well-
known ways. The kind of solution to
he used ns the solvent is described by
the specification very broadly. It is to
he any solution containing cyanogen
or any cyanide soluble in witter (such
as cyanide of potassium), or any other
substance or compound containing or
yielding cyonogen. No special apparatus, or machinery, or device, or
scheme of any kind is required. The
solution is simply to be poured on the
ore. You may stir the ore about in
the solution if expedition is required;
or, if you choose, you may let the solution -rest, so as gradually to solve the
gold in the ore. In fact, the patent really i.s for an alleged discovery.tluit a solu
tion continuing cyanogen can he used
to dissolve out the line gold in powd
ered ore. Now, how did matters stand
at tlie date of this patent ? It was per
fectly well known that a solution of
cyanide of potassium would solve gold
in a fine state, and that the finer the
gold the more speedy the process. The
peculiar property of cyanogen that it
would solve fine gold if oxygen were
present wus well known! The chemist
in his laboratory knew that by pouring
a solution of cyanide of potassium on
fine gold he could solve the gold. It Is
true that in this coTlhtry no one hud
commercially used a solution of cyanide of potassium to extract tlie fine
gold in the powdered ore; but this is
nol. surprising Alien the following facts
are borne in mind: First, that iu this
Country very little gold ore is found nl
all, and Hint, so far as appears, up to
the date of this patent ores were not.
brought to this country from nboad to
have the gold extracted here as a commercial transaction, And, si'conly,
even if the gold in the ore had been extracted there, was no known successful
and paying method of recovering the
gold from the solution. It is proved
before me that for some time after the
date of the plaintiff's patent the patentees' alleged invention was not com*
'uiercinlly worked, because no efficient
and paying method was known of 'recovering thejgold, nnd that it Was not
until the patentees subsequently made
a discovery, which they patented, of a
new method of recovering the gold
from the solution, that the use of a
solution of cyanide of potassium to ex;
tract the fine gold in the ore was priic
ticnlly employed for commercial purposes. But the matter dues not rest,
here. Not only was the above mentioned property of cyanide of potassium
known, but in 18(17 one Rue took out, n
patent, In the United States, and the
specification of his invention was published here before the date ol the plain*
1 ill's1 patent. Hue's invention, us there
described, was (inter alia) for the ex-
trad ion of gold from tbe powered Ore.
His process was this: He took a solution suitable to solve the gold from
thu ore, and he expressly mentions a
solution of cyanide of potassium as one
that could be employed, and ho poured
this solution on thu ore in a vessel
whicli he agitated by machinery, and
he used electricity for two pnrsoseB--
first (as he expressly says) to facilitate
the net inn of thi' solution ill solving
the gold lu the ore; and, secondly, to
recover it from the solution by depositing it on a certain base in the machine.
So that, undoubtedly, in his specification he recommends the use of cyanide
of potassium in a solution us a means
and for the purpose of solving gold in
the powdered ore; nnd he was, of
(■ourse, right ill so using it, And I dii
not see that his recommendation is
rendered worthless because he also
recommends electricity to facilitate
the action of the solution and also tu
do some other work with the solution
after the gold is extracted. Then,
again, in 1SSI one Simpson took out a
patent in the United States, and his
specification was published here before
the date of the plaintiffs' patent. Simpson's process, as described In thiB speci
fication, was substantially identical
with the plaintiffs' except that the solution he mentions is not oue of cyanide of potassium only, but. of a comparatively small quantity of carlionatc
nf ammonia added. Of this addition of
carbonate of ammonia the plaintiffs
have naturally made the most, but I
am satisfied on the evidence that tin-
addition does not substantially affect
the operation of the cyanide of potassium on the ore, and that Simpson's
solution is perfectly efficacious. Why
he lidded the enrboiiate of ammonia is
not clear. Possibly because it was of
use when the ore .were what is termed
"acid"! possibly because lle did Illll
dare, having regard to emitting knowledge, to claim boldly tbe cyanide
alone. But I think a person reading
this specification would gather from il
that cyanide of potassium wns lbe
main ingredient, and was employed
because it was a solvent for the gold iu
the ore."
" Under the circumstance I conic to
the conclusion  that the date of the
plaintiff's patent, having regard   to
what was then published anil known,
there was no  real  invention  in the
plaintiffs' so-called  discovery.    And,
indeed, when I consider the evidence
of Air. McArtlnir as to bow he came to'
make bis alleged discovery, what it
comes to really is this—that, so fur aa
the  main   alleged  invention is concerned, lie wanted to find a solution of
the gold iu the ore and tried several .
solvents, and among them he tried
cyanide of potasssitint, which lie knew
to he a solvent of fine jrold, nnd not
unnaturally he found that it answered.
There being, in  my opinion, no real
invention or discovery in the npplica*
cation, nt the date of the patent, of a
solution of cyanide ot"ptftassimil to extract the gold from powdered ore, it
follows Unit on this ground alone the
patent must fail.   But  before  I quit
this part of the case I ought to say a
word about the expert evidence bearing upon it.   Several eminent  chemists were called on each side, hut tho
two sides do not agree in  thein evidence, and in their testimony I am not
only at liberty but am bound to exercise my own judgment and that judgment agrees with  tbe views of Jlr.
lliley, Mr. Mactear, and Professor Att-
lialil. who stated that, in theii opinion,
at llie date of this patent no invention
was required to discover,that usolii-
'tlon of cyanide of potassium could .be
applied to dissolve gold and silver in
crushed ore.   But, in addition lo tlie
above, 11 bin*, there Is another ground
on which this patent is bud.   Even if
the     invention    was    one    whicli
could  form   the    good    subject,   of
a   patent,   I   think   it  was   ailtiei*   .
pated hy Rue's and Simpson's specifications,   Test it iu this way:   If the patent were held valid, would not Rue's
and Simpson's processes, if now  used
according to the specifications published he liable to be stopped as iiifringt*-
nienls?'I think tiiey ccrlainly  would, ,
What chance of escape would a person have who took Rue's for, instance,
and used the cyanide of potassium es-,
pccinlly mentioned by Hue?   ll would
be said against tliut person with crushing effect that he was using the cyanide of potassium foe the very  purpose ,
pointed out in the plaintiffs' patenl,
viz., to dissolve the gold in the crushed
ore, and not the less because he tried,
to assist the process by electricity,
which might or might not be of assist-
mice, and cerluinly not the less lie-
cause he used the electricity also fur
another and different  purpose.  So,
also, a person  now using Simpson's
process would be liable I.i he slopped.
For it .would be proved against him .
that lie was using the cyanide of pol-
iissiuiii in the very way pointt.il out in
the plaintiffs' specification, and that'
Ihe addition of carbonnlcof iiinini'iiiii
made no material difference.  To lpilil
that! Simpson's was not an anticipation ,
would lead to strange result.  A person using cyanide of potassium alone
would lie au Infringer, but if llorhfisji
to mill a slight amount of carbonate of
ammonia (which is cheap and practically Innocuous) lie could nni be restrained. This would iu iisclf render
the plaintiffs' patent practically value-
less,  Now, iis the specifications nf Itac

liberty to use the processes there rti'fc
forth, und that, right is Incompatible
wilh Ihose persons being liable, if they

reasons the action must lindisinisscd."

WASHING   A   CHIME.
G. 11, Donnelly, of New York, who
made an extended slay in the gold
fields of Western Australia, gave
uu Interesting account of some features
uf thu life iu that region, " Gold in
that country," be said, is more plentiful than water. In going there you
must be prepared not only to get nothing washed, but never to even wash
yourself. You wear your shirt until
you can wear it no longer, und then
you discard it for another. Washing
yourself is not to be thought of, for
you have to buy water, und even in
that way It Is hard to get enough for
drinking purposes. People tbete would
consider it almost a crime for a man to
use water to bathe in when there are
so many poor wretches who are nearly
perished for a drink. The men there
look more like a tribe of red Indians
than civilized white men. Speaking
about washing makes me think of a
curious sight I saw while there. One
morning as I was mnkinga trip up into
the hills I noticed a digger, quite nude,
standing in his tent door, and with the
utmost gravity brushing himself all
over with a clothes brush. He was
trying to dust the dirt front his body,
employing the same means that he
would to dust a suit, of clothes."—Globe

working the claitnsowned by the Anglo-
Anierica.il Gold and Platinum Hydraulic Mining Company situated on the
south fork of the Siinilkaineen River
in Ynle District, The company was
incorporated three or four months ago
after the claims had been thoroughly
prospected and the gentlemen who had
acquired the claims had assured themselves of the value of the property,
Mr, J, B. McLaren undertook to purchase one-fifth share in the company
if he found everything as represented
and has been bvei the ground, attended by Mr. R, C, Lowry, an engineer,
appointed hy himself, and is so pleased
with it that he materially assisted Captain Scott: on his trip by recommending his brothers in Ottawa to purchase
stock.
Some of the gravel on these claims
hits lieen found to run us high us ffS. pet-
cubic yard and taking au average the
result of the prospecting shews 27 cents
gold and 0 3-4 cents platinum to the
cubic yarf. Water rights have been
secured 00 Whipsuw creek, the Wolf
lakes and the Siinilkameeu River,
either of these being ample to meet
requirements.
Captain Seott, who is managing di-
recter of the company, has now all the
necessary capital and work will be
pushed ahead as soon us possible, He
has also seemed capital to work the
Stevegson claim situated six miles
from tliauthercliiiinson Granite Creek.
It is the intention of llie company to,
as far as possible, purchase all their
supplies in this Province. Nuws-Ad-

NEW  INDUSTRY.
(Contributed.)
In times of depression like the present, when some of the old tried
branches of agriculture, owing to bad
seasons and outside competition, have
ceased to become revenue-producing,
any new industry that promises.to he
a success and as a consequence mid
wealth to llie coininuiiil.v bIIuiiIiI lie
hailed ivilh delight, not only by llie!
new, Inn also l,y ilie old resident*of
our country. H Is/therefore, not lo lm
wondered m, tlml. the experiment llnil,
le being curried out, namely, the cultivation nnd curing of tobacco hy Mr.
L, Holman, al Kelowim, Okiiiiiigon
Mission, attracts a great amount of ul-1
tentioi! and ilttords scope fur a large
ititmiint of discussion and inquiry liy.
those living in his neighborhood, as
alsoothers in different portions of the!
district. Mr. Hnlnian has pi-ul ly clearly |
proven this summer tire ndnpl ability ns
regards soil and cliiiinleof this seel inn
to produce a good, healthy and vigorous plant, possessing all the true characteristics of a merchantable article,
one which, I nil) given to understand,
compares favorably with tuber samples
grown not only in this province, but in
other tobacco producing countries.
The one and it. would seem only drawback to thesamplegrown this summer,
is the size of the steins and ribs m the
leaf, wbji'b, being so pronounced, tends
to deteriorate its value as a wrapper
for cigars. This fault, if fault it may
he considered, tends only to show that
the natural food of the plant,
such as nitrogen, potash, phosphoric
acid, magnesia and lime were present in abundance in the soil
and that all other conditions were
favorable to its growth, and this will
be more clearly understood when it is
stated that numbers of Hie leaves
measured as much, ns 36x22 inches.
The varieties grown this summer were
tbe Spanish, the Broad Leaf, anil the
Pennsylvania Seed Leaf, All these
are very heavy croppers, with a tendency to rank growth, and as it is the
aim of Mr. Holman to test, the capabilities nf the soil and climate to produce a sample of tobacco superior, or
at least equal to the finest grades
grown, some other varieties will he
experimented with the coining summer, among which will be the Havana.
This question of quality, however, will
he one of great, interest to I hose who
contemplate making a business of the
cultivation of the plant, as it would
seem quality can only be attained at a
cost of decreased production, ll will,
therefore, become a question as to
whether to raise a lower priced article,
but one of a maximum yield, or a high
priced one, of minimum yield. The
range of prices is from 10 cents to 2.00
per Ih, for the one, and for the otliei
from $1.00 to $10 One great advantage those entering upon the cultivation of this plant, will have over grow
ei-s in other parts of thi' continent, and
that is the freedom of .the crop from
ihe ravages of the lobaeco worm,
which at the present lime is ma known
to exist in this section of conuli ■.-.
One enemy however, and one whirl
will always be more or less a soun i a
aniioynuco, is known to dwell in mi
midst, viz, lin- cut worm, uj-piiiiii
which growers musl be on llieir o ■■
as it is n very assiduous enemy uml
oni' calculated to do much liitrin In lb
very young plants, A few ciii'sory aa
marks ou soil, i-ultivni.ion, hili-vestine-
etc., may not be out, of palce, and muj
be of interest to the uninitiated
Having selected the variety of seed lo
be experimented with, a hotbed should
be made and the seed sown from Ihe
first to the middle of April, thun if
propet attention is given tlie young
plants they will he ready to tronsplnnl
to a cold frame In about three weeks.
The time for setting out in tlie field
may he left to the individual judgement of the cultivator, but by no
means should the plants he set out un.
til the danger of frosl is over, With
regard to soil, a deep, friable, rich clay
loam is suitable, one that is dry and
warm and well drained, is essential,
hundreds of acres of which soil is lying
idle in this part of B. C.
If the experiment is carried out scientifically, it will be necessary to find
out. by analysis the actual constituents
of the soil to be made use of, so Ibal il.
may be determined beforehand whether
or not the necessary amount of plant
food Is,contained therein, but with soils
such as are found iu the Mission and
other valleys, (his may lie taken as a
foregone conclusion, ns it is well
known thev contain a large amount of
alkaline salts, and in sonic cases a
great deal too much. In fact it is a
question to he decided whether or not
this crop might not he a useful one
with which to reclaim some of the soils
now known to contain an excess of the
salts, some of whicli are so necessary
to the vigorous growth of this plant.
Rich as the soil is, it will he necessary
to guard its fertility with jealousy, as
this crop Is extremely exhaustive, aud
with this end in view it would be well
to return to the soil the stalks of the
plant, as they contain to the acre au
equal amount of potash as may be
found in four tons of good manure.
In transplanting, the plants should be
set out in rows, the large leaved vnr-
itics requiring to lie set 4 feet apart,
and 3 feet in the rows, Three feet
apart each way will be found sufficient
for the smaller varieties. Thorough
cultivation should he resorted to at
least once in every two weeks and kept
up until the time for topping arrives,
which operation is performed by removing the flower stalk with one or
mote of the upper and smaller leaves,
By this operation the energies of the
plant are diverted from the production of seed to that of a more perfect,
development of its leafy tissues.
When maturity is reached and the
time for harvesting has arrived the
leaves loose their deep green colour,
taking on a yellow hue, and at this
stage if the tip of the leaf be doubled
back, the midrib will break with a
clean fracture. Different methods of
harvesting are practised in different
localities. Cutting the plant at the
ground, and hanging up the whole
stalk is the most expeditions, although
not the best The other method of
stripping the leaves in the field r,
quires u great amount of labour jus:

Is much to be preferred as giving be-

The following is a statement of the
totals in Mr. ('. A. Ii. I.niiibly's assessment roll for tlio southern portion of
tlie Osoyoos District of Vale (.Siniilkameen, Lower Okanogan and Kettle
river) for the year 1805 i cattle, (1,8(11 •
sheep, 211; hogs, 17K; horses, 7(11;
number of acres assessed, 106,1011:
value of real properly as assessed,
$r>t8,031 ; number nf acres assessed lis
wild land 10,001); assessed value of
personal properly $160,085; total as-
inssed tax at lesser rate $11,870.01.,
These figures are instructive, as showing at hnw'InW.it. (igure property in
this section of the province is assessed.
Them can certainly be no kick coming
against the government on that, score.
The number of hogs (178) produced in
such an enormous area ns is covered by
the assessment roll, is ample evidence
why almost, all the bacon and pork
consumed iu the southern milling
camps cornea from across the line.
The new sliafl on tlie Skylark is now
down ninety feet on the vein, and will
be continued for iiiiiitlmi'ten feet.  The
other shaft, whicli  starled from  the
fifty-font level, and was sunk by the
S. k (i. N. Mining Company off the
Vein, has been (llli'd up.   Three assays
made of the ore taken from the depth
of seventy-five feet gave respectively;
208 oz. silver, 1 oz. gold ; 7(Ki oz, silver,
1 oz, gnld; 780 oz. silver, 1 oz, gold.
There are now over ten tons of this j
class of ore iu the shaft-house, all nf j
which lias come out from below the
fifty-fool level.   The sinking is only
being done for development and no
drifts have   been   run,   The   general
average uf the ruck taken out since the
lead was recovered Is almost 100 oz,
silver and .slightly over 1 oz. gold lo
the ton,   It could, of course, ho sorted
nut to average much higher,   On the
dump there are between sixty and seventy tons nf seconil-rlnss ore averaging
between sixty and seventy oz, silver
and about une oz. gold.   Tile letd is
opened up from 200 feet south of the
shaft to KM feet from the north line,
where it was lately struck by Mr,
Atwood,   At this point  it shows up
fully four  feet between walls on the
surface.   The ure lako.il out here has
nol yet been assayed, but is well mineralized,   It is nxprcled that another
open-cut or two will prove whether the
Skylark nnd Denver leads nre the same
