THE GREAT FALLS SMELTER.
The lliu plant of the Bust on and
Montana company at Oivat Falls ic
runniiigat full cApKOlty. All the departments of the great plant are kept
busy. Hardly a week passes but, what
new additions are added. It. was predicted hy the lute Charles 0. Parsons,
who was the Hrst to advocate Great
Falls us a suitable location for the
erection of a lui^e smelter, thnt some
day it would be possible to prod.ice re*
lined copper at a less figure than in any
city in the world, No doubt this mis
been realized. Since Supei inlendeiit
Klepetko has lieen installed many
new and valuable improvements have
l*en made and the cost of reducing
copper to a refined slide has reached a
point where it can lie but lilllc improved upun.
The. annual report of this company
will he oul next week, and it is learned
that tlle contents of the same will be
highly gratifying to the management
as well as to all concerned.
Oneof the features of Superintendent Klepetko's report last year was his
recommendation that the blast furnace
department be increased, und Hiatal-
raiigenieDt.be made to mamiraetui-e
its own supply of coke. These suggestions have been considered l.y the
managing directors, The capacity of
lhe furnaces has been increased fully
one-third. The plan of the company
has been very conservative, as well us
not to give out any Information concerning the company's future plans,
hut to a casual observer it is readily
seen that the Improvements now in
progress, when completed, will greatly
increase the capacity of tlie furnaces
as well as the refinery. Thus the output, of reflnen copper for 1806 will
greatly exceed that, of the pasl, year.
The Great Falls Tribune says that
although silver is low in pi-ice and
nearly all the thousands of picks and
shovels which were once in use in the
mining camps lie idle, the smelter of
the United .Smelling company affords
employment, tu quiten number..f men,
whose daily wages contribute to the
support of the business men of Great
Falls.
The scene in Ihe vicinity of Giant
spring is, however, a desolate one, in
con.paeison witli the activity there
when silver sold at $1 and above.
Then the smelter wus running al ils
full capacity, (lav and nighl, and men
were lo be seen -.bout every portion of
the building, but when silver dropped,
men were laid olf, one l.y oue, until,
last summer, lhe furnaces became cold
and all hands were idle.
But a few months ago lhe mines thnt.
had been shipping lo other smelters,
ou account of the Great Northern's
discrimination against Great Falls in
freight rates, resumed shipments In
Gi-eat Falls, and work was resumed al
the silver smelter.
Only one of the four furnaces at Ihe
smelterU now in operation, but between 125 and 160 men are employed
in handling Ihe ore and pulling il
through (he various processes lo which
it is subjected, Tlie pay roll is over
$10,000 per month, and under the
present management ihis money is
spent lu great Falls, wilh Great Falls
merchants, aud not, as heretofore, sent
to Helena.
Ahout 1,000 Ions of ore per day has
been llle average amount treated during the past month. The smeller is
now receiving all the ore from all Ihe
Neihart mines,, the ore from the prlu
cipal niines in the Trail Creek distiicl
in British Columbia, lead ore frum the
Poornian and other mines m the Cueue
d'Alcnes, and ore from lhe vicinity of
Castle and other points iu Molilalia.
The receipts from Ihe Trail Creek
district are gradually increasing iu
quantity. The output of lhe Neihii.t
mines lia.- slighlly decreased recently,
tlie Broadwater having reduced ils
force In order to prepare for renewing
work with au Increased for.-.*. Other
Neihart mines are also preparing lo
increase their output, and lhe receipts
nt. the smelter from that, camp will he
doubled within a few weeks.
The smeller officials believe Hint the
sliver unlike! hns a gradual, though
slow, upward tendency and, while Ibe
i ise, if any, will probably not be sufficient to cause any more mines to be
reopened, llle output of those mines
now in operation will probably l.e in.
creased. There is not lllicll ground for
hope lhat Ihe force at the United
smelter will soon lie matetlally increased, but it. is certain that, under
existing conditions, the smelter will
continue lo lie opeiaiti'das al present.—

SEND TO WALES FOR THEIR COKE.
It has occalioi.cd some surprise that
that the Hull Mines company should j
send to Wales for lbe coke for use at
the smelter al Nelson. Inquiry has disclosed the fact lhat Welsh can be delivered at Vancouver and .hipped from I
there to Nelson at. a lower rate lhan!
can be obtained from Oonnellsvlllf lo I
Nelson.    It has  been  demonstrated
that the coke made on the coast could
not be  used advuntagemisly, owing
largely to an excess of ash, said to be
17 per cent.   Another advantage of
the Welsh  product  was that it has;
only 5 per cent, ash and IU per cent. J
more call......   The Connellsvllle coke
has nlmiilR per cent, ash or 8 per cent,
less carbon Iluin Welsh coke. In fact
the coke from Wales is the purest and
best made in tlle world. The coal is
carefully prepared, being broken up
an.l washed and run over jigs to remove all of the Impurities possible before being pul in the ovens. This fact
is probably wbal has influenced the
owners of the smeller to order coke
from Wales—a probable lower rate of
freight and purer article.
The Diinsn.uii-s are building an extensive coking plant at or near their
mines. The same objection may be
raised to ihe producl as to tlle coke
produced in this stale, as from what
can be learned there is a great similarity in all the coals of the const.—

WIRE SILVER IN THE NORTH STAR.
The Norlh SI..r is all right, as the
developinenl of lhe mine progresses
something new turns up causing a sensation of wondei as to what lhe fui.ur
richness.if the mine may l.e, says lhe
Foil Steele Prospeclor, The new lind
is wire silver. In running the several
drifts, lend crvsluls have been found
in considerable quantities. Being so
plentiful no particular notice has been
paid lo Ihem, bul now iu a small seam
In the louf of the drifts more crystals
are found, nud in and around the
crystals is wire silver. How much of
Ihis seam and foe what distance this
will continue is hard to tell, hut lliere
Is sufficient lo Indicate lhat. as depth
is obtained the ore will become richer.
There are several rich streaks in Ibis
mine at Ihe presenl lime, one on Ihe
fool wall, about two or three inches
lllicll thai runs IHI to 100 ounces; then
tbe small seam lb.it carries 2(11 ...luces,
and now the new discovery of wire

This will surely prove to Il.e owners
of ihe mine ihe necessity of reduction

RAILWAY EXTENSION,
At a public ineeling held in Vernon
(....Monday, live Lib inst.,resoltilions
were passed liy Iliose present, urging
the government in gnaw, all possible
assistance to railway extension in ihe
southern portion of Yale district,an
action very uuicli to l>e commended,
and one which shows thai the people of
(hat city are awakening lo a sense of
Iheir true Interests iu endeavoring to
•obtain uullelsti on. llwir-wndislrii-tand
inlets into ihe fast developing mining
ramps,foe the greal an....nil of produce
»f all kinds that could, be raised and
made available for r-*isiunpliim, if
transportation facilities were only established lhat would allow them lo
ship theii' produce to a market. Tliat
lhe people of the norlheru portion oi
Ihe district all" not thoroughly conversant with the exigencies t.f llie case
an it affects I he southern porlion, does
not iu anyway, or rathcrshould uot,detract from llu. motive of their good in-
lent ions towards l.hedistrict as a whole,
and therefore it is wilh some surprise
we Holed the editorial comment of tlle
News relative lo I be roud-el of certain
individuals present at lhe meeting referred lo. One fael should not be
nr.vlook.d by the citizens of Vernon,
and lhat is I bat three charters are
being applied for—one from Christina
bike to Copper camp, which is evi.
dciitly backed l.y the Spokane and
Ni.rl.liem, company; one from Trail
rrevk lu .Vuiict.m, backed l.y slrong
locrfgii capitalists, incorporated willi
whom we may mention the syndicate known us the Montana Ore
Purchasing company, of Butte, who
are represented by Mr. Heinze, and
one from Penticton In Cascade City,
backed evidently l.y lhe 0, P, R„ or at
least thoroughly countenanced by
officials of that corporation. This being: the case, the district through which
lliese roads are designed to traverse is
evidently iu a fail' way of being fur*
uished trauspottat-in facilities in the
neaii list-re, if tlm government can
,,nly be prevailed upon to adopt a line
»f actioiir sooj-whtti .liferent to that
arconled th* chatter sought by Mr.
Corbin for the building of a road
through the same territory, or at, least
a portion of it,, some years ago, and
which, acl ion mi the part of the gov-
rriwu-riit was greatly instrumental in
causing the loss to Ihem uf lhe member who formerly represented Ihis district, and who now holds the position
nf agent general lo (lie province in
London.
The question, however,, foe tlle people of Vernon seems to- have resolved
itself into one of giving a cordial sup-
jin-r to the coii-paiiy willing to> furnish

may be attained, by granting a charter

Then again if it can be shown that

believe, a .on.'.' difficult, matter than at
first thought it. appeals, to devise a
means that will successfully prerent a
repetition of the practice iu fat me. If
our legislature can discover no absolute preventive against, the practice,
yet may lhey he able to make it a
more dillicull matter for au individual
to get possession of another's property,
and with this end iu view we would
offer the suggestion that it would be a
good thing if the party desirous of
making a record of a mineral claim, or
in fact a pre-emption forlhaiiualter.be
obliged to furnish, under oath, a statement selling forth upon whal grounds
or technicalities his action is taken
and can he justified before ihe is
allowed to make his record. And further, that if his claim, after being
recorded, be contested by tlie former
occupaul, that the grounds »r technicalities as set forth in his sworn state;
meat made before his record was
granted, sliall be Ihe only one upon
which lie shuuld be allowed to base the
defense of his claim when the same is
brought befoie the court. This, of
course, would only apply in cases of re-
local ion, For the better understanding of our suggestion it may be well In
furnish a few examples: Take, for instance, if ii miner finds a claim whicli
he considers has not heen properly
slaked, Ihe stakes not being the regu-
Iul ion size required by law, or Ihe
wording upon lhe stake does not conform with the record, or lhe assessment hns not been properly carried
out and recorded, nr any other technicality exists which may be construed
as a sufficient excuse to invalidate a
title, the specific technicality upon
which Ihe parly desiring relocation of
llie ground bases his claim should be
set forth under oalh as before stated,
and upon th s and this alone, should
Ihe court l.e called upon loajudicale,
A ease in poinl was Ihe one recently
before llie gold commissioner's court
here, in the suit Pailerson, v. Lancaster, In whieh as lhe defendant did
nol put iu an appearance to defend his
net ion, Ihe court, even lo the piesenl
lime, is entirely in ignorance upon
what technicality, if lhe jumping was
nut done ill a spirit nf revenge, Lancaster could possibly justify his relocation ot the Roderick Dim claim.

Mr. Slimm. acting agent fnr the Barnard syndicate, returned from the
coast recently, and is at present engaged paying attention to some of the
i.esl properties in Ihe Boundary Creek
district. Before leaving for the coast
Mr. Miiiiihi spent two or three months
looking over properties here, and the
- fact t hn t be hus returned would give
an indication that the capitalists he
represents are favorably impressed
with the mining properties and Ihe
chance presented of investing some
of llieir surplus capilai.
Mr. R, Wood of Greenwood City
came ill uu Friday night's stage from
Peiiliclon aud proceeded home on
Saturday. Mr. Wood has just returned from a1 lajsiueas ;Wip- toliie

successful in interesting capital in
some mining enterprises. During his
visit to Victoiia be waa enabled to
meet a number of prominent men,
government officials and otherwise,
and was indefatigable in bringing to
Iheir notice the pressing needs of this
district.
. Quite an epidemic of influenza or la
grippe or some distemper of the kind
has been raging lu. this neighborhood
the past week or two, and an astonishing number of our citizens have fallen
under ils influence, ,and aa a consequence have felt extremely miserable.
The epidemic has undoubtedly visited
us in a mild form, and asaconsequence
no very serious case of illness can ha
reported, yet many there are who are
willing to testify they felt quite had
enough. The oft repeated and very
rapid changes of tlie weather recently
may be accountable for the epidemic,
The assistant commissioner of lands
and works, Mr. L Norris, came down
from Vernon on Tuesday last, and
during tiie past week bus lieen paying
attention to and gathering information relative to the manyand urgent
needs of the district this summer.

Some of the prominent, citizens nf
Grand Prairie have enmbined together
as charter members, .and-, have in con
temptation the. establishment of .a

Hu-ceMul, and'no doubt they will be,
in establishing the lodge, it,will lie the
first institution of its kind in this lower

their hiethren, aud more especially is
this felt in case of sickness,
been given here this winter, as besides
good music and dancing, a very pleas
ant and sociable time wus spent by
the many who graced Ihe occasion
with Iheir presence. Over thirty
ladies were present, all of whom eii-
tered thoroughly inlo the enjoyment
nf the occasion, as witnessed by the
fact that at times there were no less
than live sel-s upon the floor at the
same time, which tested the capacity
of Ihe hall lo afford iiccumminlatiuii to
so large a number nf dancers. As
usual, the ladies having the management of the affair excelled themselves
in matters of arrangement, as betides
having the ball pleasantly decorated
for the occasion, lhe repast placed before the guests at the hour of midnight was of great excellence, as attested to by those who partook of the
same. The object of the entertain*
inenl .is well must not he lost sight nf,
as besides furnishing an np|a>rtunity
for the wary an.l unwary bachelor to
la'come possessed of a valentine, the
occasion was embraced l.y those gentlemen present, lo contribute Inward a

At an ...iily hour on Sal unlay morning the gathering dispersed, nnl, however. More each and every one had

None but good reports are being received from the Cariboo claim inCamp

SHOUT IN HIS ACCOUNTS.
Charles Warwick, Ihu provincial
government agent at, Westminster, is
lyiug under arrest in Victoria jail,
charged with stealing a large sum of
money. A couple of days ago a telegram from Mr, Warwick to tha
premier-staled that he would lie down
Friday on some important business.
That evening he arrived from Westminster and acknowledged to the premier that he was short in his accounts
hy snme $7,u00. Biuken dowu hy
anxiety and sorrow he could not keep
his secret longer, aud hod come to
throw himself upon the mercy of the
government. He wanted to make
restitution, but he had nn ready money
available, though he had some life in
siirunce policies upon which something
could be realized, and the remainder of
the missing sum he offered to make up
by having an amount kept back ftom
his salary.
Tbe premier and the other members
of the government, though pained at
the unhappy position of one who for
years hud been u trusted servant, felt
it tn lie their duty to see that the law
was carried out. The case was placed
in the hands nf Superintendent HusBcy
and on Fridny evening Mr. Warwick
was quietly arresled at the Angel
hotel and sent out to the'provincial
jail,
From what cnn he learned it wuuld
appear that Mi*. Warwick hud been interested in some real estate in Westminster, und the dull' times had seriously impaired ils value aud embarrassed him financially. He had iu the
course of his duty as government agent,
to handle a considerable nun.mil, of
money and had an official account at
the bank.
