ccses for the I refitment of ore. ure now
vogue, each claiming llie right of
preference one from llie other, tlmt it
would be well for those Interested in
the developinenl. of mining properties,
to pause, consider nnd enquire, before
making choice of nny particular process fm- ilm treatment of ore lu wliieli
Ibey themselves ure Interested.
Some of the varied excellent qualities
of the Crawford mill are herein set
forth by one claiming acquaintance
wilh the practical working of the
same, in which the writer snys:
In offering ilie following remarks I
would preface them by saying that
there is no intention of uil'Ogating lo
the Crawford mill the ability of being
able to get the full nssny value fi'oui
ores, but to point out Unit when ores
nre of n nature Unit can lie treated by
llie mill it is by fur the most desirable
process, on account of its simplicity
and cheapness, combined with efficiency, of any at present before tlie
public, For a country like British Columbia especially is it suitable, ns u
large proportion of the guld in this
country i.s either low grade or combined with sulpburuts, whicli, by other
mechanical processes, requires tlie use
of concentrators, iiinitlguuiuting puns,
etc., etc., while these ores can be
treated ut small cost, and lu one operation, by the Crawford mill. Extensive
ledges and rich deposits exist wliieli
only require a chciip and effective
method of treating refractory ores to
amply repay the expenses of operation,
Numerous exhaustive trials with llie
Crawford mill have proved it to be a
cheap, rapid and effective method of
treating such ores unci concentrates, of
both high and low grades, und Ibis
witli a plant of the simplest description, It is self evident that on a low
grade ore u small increase in tiie percentage saved Is of no commercial advantage if accompanied by u material
increase in tlie cost, nud, therefore, u
cheap and continuous system of work
is tbe real necessity for a fair saving In
be effected, in stumps, one tiling mil
to be lost sight of, i.s lbe probability of
direct loss in careless milling uml Inexperienced amalgamation, Now milling is one of the—in fact the—grea
part in gold saving, nud if it is performed carelessly, or the amalgamation
is iii other Ibnn first.clnss bands, one
limy bid gooil-bye to liny profits thai
should come from the mine, in tlie
Crawford mill this is automatic; and
lliere is no neeesssity for an amalgamator, as the mill does Its own amalgamation. The gold being under lock ami
key the amalgam is safe.
Tbe Crawford mill will extract In
one operation, and at small cost, gold
contained in ores, whether the same be
classed free or refractory, ulitl dispenses
with the ouinherous, complicated and
expensive    apparatus    now   ill   use,
whether of a chemical or mechanical
character, thus removing lbe absolute
prohibition which at present exists lu
tlie successful working of many mines,
where, after tlie free gold bus been extracted, a large amount of concentrates
are produced, which have to depend mi
liana- expensive methods in order in
remove tin- gold they contain,
While recognising the general attach-
incut of raining engineers in tho use of
slumps, It is by no melius universal,
nud gruve questions are being asked by
men prominent in tlm profession ou
tbe subject,   Mr, A. II, I'mil,  lu an
without wanting
renewals,
The percentage saved naturally
varies wilh Uu* cliarnctei of the ores
treated, whether lhey lie liuril or soil.
uinl ,-ilso with the constituent elements
of Uia ore. Thus ii larger amount nl
free milling ore can be treated in a
given time  Ulan of u sulphliret ore,
With a relatively varied percentage of
gold saved, If, however, the ore car*
ries mure than 2.5 per cent uf pyrites,
in order to secure a high percentage of
saving, the capacity of the mill hns lb
be proportionately reduced,
Tlie amount and character of tlm
saving depend upon the speed with
whicb ibe mill Is drivel) and the adjust*
inent of the water supply, This, to*
gather with thcuccuratesetting of tlie
mill upon a llrni and abblsuteiy level
foundation, constitutes essentially nil
the points for which nn expert Is required, When these points have been
carefully considered nud adjusted, the
mill niny be classed us automatic, and
will require the attendance of one man
only, Five mills, or the product from
60 tons every 21 hours can be handled
ns cheaply—so far as the cosl of operating the mill is concerned—ns from
one mill, with the exception of the
extra power required to drive the five
mills, ns after the mills are adjusted
and the speed and water power regulated, one Inan can properly look after
(Ive mills. An ordinary travelling derrick or crane, when in place, will open
llie mill easily iind quickly, if from any
cause the wearing purls require, examination or renewal.
The position which the bath of quick.
silver occupies, and its method of operating upon llie gold, constitutes un Im-
pnrliinl. factor in the economy of the
mill, it is essentia! Hint, pure waler
shall be brought in conflict with tho
mercury. The mercury is uol in until ny ground up vi Ii ihii material,or
brnuglil iu i utricl tb I litelious elements, which iviiuid I"- eiilcilluled to
sicken tlie meri'liry, It thus exercises
its full power for amalgamation, and
can lie recovered with barely u trace of
loss. Tin- quleksilvi imili i uu be renewed ul uuy lime when necessary
without opening tlie mill or disturbing
its operations, except for u very brief
period.
It luis been fount! by experiment Hint
the use of hot wiiler In the mill is very
advantageous, und by lis use the ure is
more rapidly disintegrated, Tin- action of tbe quicksilver when hunted is
more pronounced, and hasten- the
amalgamation of the gold, The engineer or superintendent In charge will
readily determine tho- best mode to do
tills,
The Crawford mill Is portable nml
light. This iiieiins not only the saving
uf a large outlay in transportation, but
also In the erection of the mill at the
mine, both in the cosl of foundations,
uinl Hm lbe lllllt' lime it lakes to coin*
ineiice work. Thn driving power islcss
lliiin tliu Btampuilll, Kiglit-hoi'M-
power is nlioul ivliut is requisite In
drive ii single mill.
Another feature Is the low consumption of water. This necessarily VIll'ioB
according lo tho character nf the d>e,
but may lu* said to be from tm to l.fiflO
gallons per ttiuiifi'i'i'iTiislii'tl.   Nlunjp-t

While crossing Keltic river at the

allowing tlie team to drop through
into deep water. After being in the
water for some time the horses were
.landed with much difficulty.
Merry voices, combined with tlie
jingling of hells, awoke the echoes of
.slumbering little Rock creek tin Friday
night lust, when a sleighing party composed of some of Midway's citizens
.drew up to the hospitable home of Mr.

Tlie Inst, coltl snap is favorable to the

a day or two more Ihe ice iu tile river
would have gone out, which would
have meant great trouble in gelling iu
tlie piei-s, and perhaps a oessatiilli of
work, its lbe river rises very rapidly
when a general thaw sets In. If the
frost, holds fora week the piers will be
in position, and nothing will then retard the completion of this very necessary public work.

very nasty wound.
Mr. Alex. Stuart, whilst engaged iu

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
Some Important Hills I'.-irllimiciit  \\ 111
Bo (ailed Upon to Consider.
LONDON, Fob. 5,*—The fourth session
of tbe thirteenth parliament of Queen
Victoria opened at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The Queen's speech was as
follows:
My Lords and gentlemen i My relations with foreign powers remain
friendly nnd on a satisfactory footing,
Au agreement lias lieeu concluded after
protriicled negotiations between my
government and that, of the French republic for the settlement of the frontier between my colony of Sierra Leone
and tbe neighboring French possessions. I regret to say the war between
China nud Japan still continues, I
have maintained a close nud cordial
understanding with tlie powers Interested in these regions and I shall lose
no favorable opportunity of promoting
Hie peaceful termination of tlie contest.
In consequence of reports whicli
reached my government of excesses
committed by Turkish troops, regular
or irregular, on Armenians in Asia
Minor, 1 thought it right, in conjunction with oilier powers, to make representations to tlie Porte, The sultan
bus declared his intent ion of severely
punishing nny of his ollleers or soldiers
who have been guilty of such acts', and
has sent a commission to conduct an
investigation on llie spot. Delegates
from the powers whicli have consuls al
Ei'zeroiim will iiccuiiipiiny this commission.
[amnappy to observe the striking
fuel that in Ireland offenses of all kinds
against the law have sunk during the
past year lo Hie lowest level hitherto
marked in official records. A proposal
will be Submitted you for remedying
defects which experience has brought
to light ill the workings of the law of
landlord and tenant. In Ireland und for
dealing witli certain evicted tenants
whose situation still constitutes u peril
to social order.
Bills will lie presented to you dealing
with Church, disestablishment in
Wales. Bills will also be submitted
for Ihe popular control of the liquor
tin-ill' and the abolition of plural voting and provision for Ihe payment of
tlie charges of returning officers at
elections | for the unification of London and for facilitating the construction of light railways, which will, I
trust, benefit the districts in view af
the agricultural depression; for tbe
promotion of conciliation in trade disputes and amendment to factory accounts; for tlie completion of a system of county government in Scotland
and for further legislation for the
crofters.
I WHY SHOULD WETAKE EXEflCISE.
Ten reasons for tlie necessity of muscular sno-ity,
1. soy roan who does not take time for
exercise wiil probably have lo take time to
be ill.
2. Body and mind are both gifts, and
for ilie ;mi >a a*- of tiitan oar Maker will
hum o. responsible,
3. K.etiise gradually increases the physical powers, and gives more strength to
resi-t sckucsB.
' '■Jxeroise will do for your body what
Ini t-tiiiii induing wiil do for your miud
—educate nnil strengthen it.
5. Piaio nailed a man lame because hs
exerci-ed llie mind while the body waa allowed lo suffer.
6. A S'liiinl body lies at the foundation
of all tlml a-iies tu make lifea success. Exercise wii.' lu-ip tuejve it.
7. Exercise will help a young man to lead
i, chaste life.
8. Varied, light and brisk exercise, next
tn sleep, will rest tho tired braiu better
tliati .--tiling else,
9. k-«sl will rust if not used, and the
body will become diieased 11 not exercised.
10. A man "loo busy" lo take care of
his health Is like a workman too busy lo
sharpen bis tools.

CORRESPONDENCE.
To lbe Editor ol The Advance i
Sih—The way in which Her Most
Gracious Majesty's mail, save the
murk, for Kettle River is now scheduled, one would naturally think that
this deplorable part of British Columbia bad been discriminated against for
liiirue niistleed, or perhaps for too much
hnpnrtunation, Whichever, or what- j
ever the cause, there is no doubt that
tlin hulk of 'he people on Kettle River
nre most unjustly inconvenienced,
Why the niuil carrier should be fprced
to lay over foi three days at Penticton
passes the limit of conception allotted
to the average biped in this snubbed
and sat upon community, Why the
mn il carrier could not be allowed to
Illy liver I he three days at Kettle River,
and so give ovei y one a chance to answer mail at a decent, Interval instead
of being forced to hold l.nck their return mail a whole week, is the question
eiHih ne is asking Ihe other in Ihis
part if the wnrld. This question Hobs
imt touch Midway t Rock Creek, I
know, inil. for :il| that, it touches the
bulk of the people, and a change of
starling point fnnn Penticton tu Grand
Korks would nni inoonVeiiience either
Midway or Rock Creek, but simply as
far as correspondence goes, place them
on the same fooling as Kettle River
aud Grand Forks, The mail arrives at
Kettle River from A p. tn, to 7 p. m,
and at Grand Forks from 7 p. in. to 8
p. in., leaving again for Penticton on
Ihe following morning before 8 a, ni,
Under these circumstances how is it
possible tu get and answer mail? Well,
I will answer that question; it is simply impossible, The only alternative
is to answer the next week. This last
service has been a retrograde movement and has pieced us in a worse
position than when wc. only received
mail once a month, for then wu did
have a chance to answer by return. It
js not n safe surmise to make that the
next move nf the postal authorities
will be not to carry any return mail at
all, and Ihe move after that to tell us
lo curry our own mail, and pay double
postage on it for the privilege.

THR cill.VF.it STANDAItl) AM) PRICES
IN AMERICA.
The Statist \—"A corr'.'spondent asks
us what we meant in last week's issue
by saying that if the silver standard
were adopted in America it would lend
to a ruinous fall in prices for the time
being, and he argues that, on Ihe contrary, it would cause an enormous rise.
In one sense he is right; in another he
is wrung. It would cause a rise in the
United 8tat*s in silver, a gold dollar
being intrinsically worth more I ban
two silver dollars. Gold prices, when
translated into silver, would, of course,
appear immensely higher. But we
were considering laetwei k whs t would
liapf oq outside of the United States ns
well as inside, and more particularly
the former, and it is quilt- cleat that
gold prices fnr nil American secuiities
would fall abroad, Fur example, the
railways would recoivt, their revenues
in silver, nnd they ,"iuld pay llieir
dividends in the same mei ul, It is in
the highest degree improbable that
they could raise rates in silver to twice
what they are at the present time when
expressed iu gold. Therefore, the Iirsl
effect would be a great decline in the
railway receipts, measured in gold.
The struggling companies whicli now
have a very great difficulty in plying
a dividend, would then be unable to
pay dividends at all. Even the better
companies would probnbly for u while
be able to pay no higher in.'s in silver
t ban they hare been paying in gold,
and that would mean a great reduction
in dividends received abroad. Further,
the currency bonds are payable in
whatever happens to lie the current
money nf the United States ut the
time, and the Interest on these would,
consequently, be paid iu silver, After
n while, of course, matters would right
themselves, The rise in silver prices in
llie United States would make ordinary unthinking people suppose that,
lhey were doing greatly better i end
Ihe whole of-the debtor class, being
able, if tile change took plane, to repay
I heir debts In silver, would really be
immensely tienc-fltted, Their debit—
for the moment, at all I'ventS'-would
Iw cut down hy one-half,
 .*.	
roMMEMHIII.I. EN TEH I'll IRE,
ll Is proposed tn introduce steam
ploughs Into Spiilluincheen. Mr, JI. F.
Young, who hi ought the first header
into the valley, Is the principal promoter of this new enterprise Ti e
header has turned'out a eo ipletu si c*
cuss, Mr, Yuiing having it-a, able iu
nnu day tu cut and stuck twenty-live
acres of wheat wi.u 'ii horses and
nine men, Not only, however, did it
harvest the grain quickly, but it also
saved tlie wild mils from being scattered a|| over tlie Held. The header
Imving, therfore, proved itself to be a
complete success, Mr. Young proposes
lo go further and make wheat growing
more   proiltahle by   using  a  steam
plough. It Is estimated, that a (Mini
plough (winch could lie laid down In
the Upper Okaungaii or Spallumchonn
at an approximate cost of $2,600) can
Iw made a prufltnhle Investment, for
pot only will it plough up n large acreage iu ii short space ol' lime, but will
also plough much deeper than any live-
lior-se team, especially in the summer
liliia, wVn the alny soil is linked hnrtl.
It would thus enable the fertile soil
(which in Spalliiinclieen goes down a
great depth) to he brought up to the
surface. Outside of this, the saving in
horse feed would be very great, the
large ranchers in Spalluiiicheen using
up several hundred dollars worth of
oats every season when ploughing
alone is being done. Mr. Young proposes to use a tiaction engine, which
will be easily run along the hard ''inked
soil, and not the cable system, Anything in creation which will enable
wheat growers in these hard times to
put in their crops ut a smaller expense
nnd thus enable thein to reap u larger
profit than nf lute years, ought at least,
to be given a fair trial, nnd Mr. Young
ought to be well backed up In his experiment.
 I-*-.	
STOOD  THE  TEST.
For some time past the appearance
nf the Alpha inine in ils lowest level
has been steadily improving, und ilhns
been hoped that ere lung tbe lowest
tunnel would ut leasl Iiiul out whal
wns uut1! i-iieaib the great surface blowout The strike that has been made,
however, Iuu greatly exceeded the
most sanguine expectations, antl the
Alpha may be put down now us une of
the greatest mines in the slocan country. On Tuesday the drift mil luto
solid ore, nnd tlie whole face of the
tunnel is now In good, uleau shipping
ore. This proves that the ore chute is
continuous for al, least 105 feet from
the grass roots, and continues dow n ns
big and with as clean oie its on the
surface. It is almost impossible for
any one not a practical miner In realize what this strike means to tbe camp,
But if one considers that practically
from the surface of this ore body ova
800 tons of ore wen* shipped which
netted in the nighborhood of $40,000
over freight and treatment, one gets a
hazy notion of the or" that can be
mined and sold 'vi.en stupes are opened
U|i from ihis loiter level. Besides
which it is a great proof thnl the
chutes of clean ore in the Slocan ureas
a rule solid and continuous. Tlie mines
go down. One prospect after another
is having the lest of development up-
plied to it, and one after another is
standing the test, All Silverton is rejoicing,— Slociin Times.
