THE REDUCTION OF ORES,
Tlie Crawford Mill,
(Continued from lust week.)
The following is nn extract frtnn u
letter to the New fork Sun: " It in not
necessary to consider in any detail the
operations ul tbe Hundt (Suuth Africa)
mines; enough to suy that some IUXUHIO
tuns of ore are being treated monthly.
The ore is first crushed in stamp butteries, where, uu an average, 85 per
cent of the gold contents are secured
by amalgamation, and uf ihe '13 per
cent remaining in tlie tailings, three-
quarters is recovered by the t-yuiiitle
treatment, bringing up the total recoid
to uliout 01) per cent, The cost of
stumping may be reckoned, wear and
tear Included, at ti dollar per Ion, and
tbo cost of the cyanide treatment at
two dollars, or a total cost, lifter the
mining is paid for, of three pennyweights of gold, to secure on the average extraction of this rump about
eight pennyweights, If, however, it
were possible Ui secure by a single
mechanical operation, and at a cost
not exceeding thut of stamps, us high
a percentage of gold as is secured liy
lioth stamps and cyanide, it is evident,
that, the cost of producing gold would
be reduced hy more than one-half, nnd
large bodies of low grade ores at present unworkable could he profitably
treated. During the pasl few days I
have seen a new mill, running upon a
hard and very refractory gold quartz
in Wales—a mill which is likely to
find much favor with miners in future.
The mill is the Invention of Mr, Crawford, a Canadian. Its history is'the
history of nine new inventions out of
ten, pitched upon Ihe world wilh sellout structural deficiencies, senile three
years ago. It was first sent to .South
Africa, and the wear and tear being
enormous, wns withdrawn, Later,
the mill found its way into n mining
camp at Cave Springs, Utah, for no
other reason than because it requires
little water. Iu this cuni|i it. wns remodelled and completed, and the en-'
glneer ill charge of it in Ulali, alia
Henry Bell, bus now erected one ut
Cefn Coch, five miles from Dolgelly, on
a property belonging to Prof. Orookes,
By the courtesy of Prof. Orookes, I
have been permltfd to spend u day at
the inine und in the mill house, In the
first place I wus confronted with these
returns, which will strike experts us
remarkable, A single mill weighing
a little over four tons bus been riming
sixty days. As it crushes less than
twice its own weight in quartz in 'it
hours, the mill is about equivalent to u
Ihi-ee-stiiuip mill. Did ever such u
stump mill, running on ore that assays
only some ten pennyweights, pay the
wages of 110 men on deudwork, on sinking shafts and driving tunnels, and
pay also till the expenses incidental lo
milling and milling, with some small
surplus uf profit;' And yet this is
what, this little mill at Cefn Coch is
doing. Up to last week it hud run
sixty duys, and had secured nlioul 21X1
ounces of gold. In other winds, it is
extracting more than $50 per day."
Ih a pamphlet, written by eminent
authorities we Und, under lbe head of
concentrating ores, l he following i
"The gold in such ores is generally
partly free and partly combined with
sulphurels. In speaking of the gold
us combined With the sulphurels, lbe
miner's sense of the term, rather than
the Chemist's, is Intended. It Is held
by many authorities thut the gnld Is
seldom, or never, found actually in
chemical combinations, except in some
antimony and tellurium compounds,
but in au exceedingly line state of division, meohanlcallyintermixed wiih the
base inelal sulphides. But to mill men
this view of the cuse is without Importance, because uu a mailer of fact,
the mechanical division is so perfect
and the difficulty of grinding und
avoiding the influence of base metals
so great commercially that roasting is
necessary to free tlie gold. In this'
connection it may be worth while lo
remark thut tlie advocates of new
processes of gold extraction from tills
class of ure, based ou assumed metallic
condition of the melal Itself, often full
to appreciate tho fact of the prellmln-J
ury, Impalpable grinding being itself
equivalent to a condemnation of the |
process, by necessitating the use of
grinding machinery, which greatly Increases the cosl over ordinary processes," Sitiee this wus written, in]
181X1, Iho Crawford mill has demon-1
strated that it will I real ores to 1201
mesh, ul from $1 to $1.50 per ton, and
that Includes the whole milling of the
nre. lu ibis connection I would cull
your attention to tbe last two paragraphs of the circular, giving au account of the llllll in the Cave Spring
camp, Utuh i " One word about concentration, It is not such a simple
thing as some people seem to imagine:
in fuel. I here ure so many conditions
that influence the general arrangements of a plant, nnd the extent to
which each of the operations, constituting concentration, may he economi
cally carried, that a very careful cou-
siderat Ion of all the surrounding conditions, as well us a thorough study of
the peculiarities of the ore, ure ueces-
surv before the general scheme to be
followed can be determined. Iu raro
occasions only can tin* treatment of
ores be decided upon without extensive
preliminary experiments."
"Tbe essential merits of nny process
or machine for extracting the greatest
amount of precious metals from ores
should be, 1st, simplicity; 2nd, show*
ing the least loss in tailings i 8rd, durability; lib, economy, All these are
combined in the Crawford mill and in
one machine i und nny machine which
will increase lbe saving of gold to the
extent of paying good interest on the
invest metit should be used, Assorting
by specific gravity is one of the principal factors in this mill, It may be Instructive to note the gold pun, which is
tbe hest teacher, The gold pun separates the gold from Ihegiingue by specific gravity alone, and as Ihis pan Is
used to determine the loss in the tunings, from an amalgamating process, it,
shows the principle of gravity to he
superior to nny known process."
The following ure answers to questions put by me to u gentleman running a Crawford mill iu California;
"Have been running the mill almost
constantly; 1 am very well pleased
with it; in ii word, I regard it as the
best gold saving apparatus yet constructed ; 1 have not as yet crushed
ore having more than 23 per cent of
pyrites; I have not yet made any critical examination of tailings, for I gel.
so little trace of gold In llieni: my mill
inan is very free in his expression
that everything is saved; I do
not think our loss will go beyond 5 per cent, on nny of the
ore wo have crushed | Hie mill will of
necessity not lose any quicksilver; at
first we lost some by cnrelessnt'ss, but
latterly we did not lose nny; we use
from 75 lbs, to 100 lbs. quicksilver, owing In richness of ore; the mill will
run through easily 10 tons if crushed
one-half inch cubes or less, but to get
12toiislhioiigli theoro must lie crushed
quarter inch cubes or less; 1 mean in 21
hours; 1 have employed the mill uu
ores for neighbors, several of whom
have brought second and third lots
fm- treatment, and there are a lol of Idle
stamps iii my neighborhood ; this will
answer your question as to how mining men of experience like the mill."
The following gives some idea of n
five mill plant, which I got from thu
general superintendent of the mine:
"It is driven (the plant of five mills)
by steam power. We use a Gules No.
2 ore breaker arranged for crushing
fine, say to iine-lmlf or three-quarters
inches, an elevnl -. uf link licit for carrying tlie crushed me from crushing
floor In ore bins; Ihu feeders conveniently arranged ill froul if ore bins for
supplying ore to Ihu mills, l'ho bolts
ure eight inch and run in twenty-four
inch pulleys ou line shaft; also, the
feeder bells arc run from same shaft.
The mills ate in line, with uu over,
head trolley with tackle for lifting out
the purls in cleaning up, Aaa, so thut
we have everything arranged fill'
hiiudiness and saving tune. The ore is
a very hard slllclous talc schist cou-
talnlng veins of hard quartz; Hie latter is generally barren, and but. a small
part is milled, ll. is a free-milling
class, contiiiningiilo I per cent pyrites,
average assays $11.25 per ton, Loss of
mercury less than 2 oz, The mills
treated 101*5 tons euch for 21 hours,
using -t gallons of water each per minute, average charge of mercury 80 lbs,
The water here given equals 570 gallons per ton of ore crushed,"
The expense of having an expert to
set up und run the mill for a mouth
would be Ilis fare lo und from the
mine, and $5 per day when at work,
hut let It he clearly understood thai ir
would be useless to have the man until
you hud all tho machinery on the
ground and ready lo start in nl once
Three hundred dollars should cover
this.

liiinil I'oiniiilssioiit'i' at  Vernon   for
claims located In the Boundary Mineral
belt, that a report should he made by
tho local mining recorder, or the Gold
(iiiiiiiilasiniicr ou each application, as
io whether such pre-emption claim
would in nny way interfere with mining operations or not, und the application fora record he granted or refused
as recommended. We nre glad to be
iihle to state that in future such a
course will be adopted, as either the
Indiscriminate granting or refusing of
pre-ouiption records iu this section
would be liable to create a hardship on
one or other class of the community.
That a number of pre-emptions could
lie still taken up In the district, which
would never iu all probability inter-
Cere with mining operations is a certainty ; nlsn thntii large number might
he located over mineral ground already
held as such, The lai ter class of preemptions can only he taken up ns possible townsite and such like speculations, and in some Instances might
hamper mining operations very considerably, The plan of treating each
application for ii pre-eni ptionrecord in
Ihis section on its own merits alone
iippears, therefore, to be the best solution of the problem, and the Government are acting wisely in adopting It,
A TIMELY YVAKNINO.
Now that boundary Is getting o good
name on the outside and considerable
motley has already been turned over in
tills camp hy holders of claims, it behooves people up north who know little or nothing of milling to beware of
•putting their hard-earned money into
claims without having the properties
examined and reported on by at lenst
a practical inan of some milling experience, Those who purchase wildcats solely on the strength of pretty
free gold specimens exhibited to them,
and without knowing anything of the
character of the property thoy are acquiring, nr if it cuu be worked to a pro-
lit, have only themselves In I hunk if—
to use the vernacular of Ihe west—
they get very badly left. The unsophisticated sucker does more harm

to obtain a leave of iilisenee when

The Cariboo Mining Company, of
Camp McKinney, have declared a dividend of $8,000, to be paid on February
18. This is the lirst dividend on the
shares of this company, and considering the great amount of expense they
have been put to in the shape of improvements around the mine since it
started, some ten months ago, and also
considering the fact that after paying
this dividend they have a large surplus
of funds on band, all will agree that it
speaks volumes for the management,
and gives to other mining men a for-
taste of what may he done in some of
our camps by energy well directed.
Did you "Eber C. Smith," gentle
reader? If not we have pleasure in
introducing to your notice the former
editor of tlie Stevens County Standard
<iud the present proprietor of British
Columbia's most recent publication,
the Itossluiul Record. This gentleman
has performed the feat of discontinuing an iiiiprolilable publication and establishing, hy all appearances, a profitable une, in a remarkably short
spare of lime, which ungues well for
his business foresight and ability, and
if future issues of tlie Russia nd llccord
are as bright and newsy as No. 1 Vol. 1,
then it will be au exchange always
made welcome by I he Advance proprietors, who extend tn B. C.'s new
journalist the fraternal hand of friendship, and at, the same time niter best
wishes for future prosperity.
An industry which ought to be es.
lulilislied iii Vernon and would have
every chance of being a financial success, is a creamery, An immense
quantity of butter still comes into the
Okanagan country from the outside,
and a district which should be export,
ing butter to the coast and the mining
markets of the province still has to import it. Several ranchers lu the Upper
Okanagan have of late years gone Into
dairying more or less as a business, but
what, they produce suppliesonly a very
small portion of the demand, and' in
many instances local storekeepers refuse Ui take local butter, as the supply
will not satisfy a steady trade and varies a great deal in quality. What is
needed is combination. In these hard
times the people of a good farming
country can scarcely afford to send
pioney out, of the district for the purchase of a product which can he produced by themselves. That creameries will eventually be established at
Vernon, Kelowna and other points up
north is a certainty, and the sooner
that time comes the better.

work. Mr. Norris returned north on
Sunday via McKinney and Peiiliclon.
Such attention to its needs an Kettle
river is now receiving at his hands
leaves absolutely no room for ciiin-
plaint.
How on earth the C, P. R, are going
lo make their steamer ou Okanagnn
lake a paying institution unless they
get a larger share of the passenger
and freight liusiness of the country to
the east of Camp McKinney passeth
the understanding of anyone acquainted with the country south of Okanagan
lake. That sufficient business to ac.
complish this end can originate in the
lower Okanagan alone is scarcely
likely, as that district may be safely
descrilied as a grazing country which
cannotsupporta large population for
some time to come—a time which,
judging from present appearances, will
be slow in coming. Without extensive irrigation systems and subdivision
of the present large holdings, very little increase of population in that section can lie looked for, except in the
mining camps. As fur as tlie ores of
the latter are concerned, they are free
milling quartz propositions in almost
every instance, so that shipments of
anything else than concentrates from
the mills are certain tn be treated on
the spot, either l,y cyanide or some
similar process, Apart from Ihis fact
a great deal of the supplies of the
camps (one might say fully half) conies
from across the line, though I his would
not be the case if more reasonable
rates were given on the lake steamer.
What Ibe O. P. R. should do is In rustle for the trade of Ihe Kellle river
mining district, which now goes across
the line, and try to secure at least a
fair proportion of its freighl, This end
will, however, not be accomplished by
men' who are totally Ignorant shout
the Boundary camps and everything
connected with them, and if the
0. P. It. wants to do business with
Ketlle river it will have to become
better acquainted with its resources.

LOOKOUT FOR BIRDIE.
Hard-billed birds are those whioh Ure
on seeds,
Sift- billed birds dn not lire on seed.,but
on insects and prepared food.
Feed very little sweet stuffs, ll spoils the

Suae.
Hard-hilled birds need little for food

time, apple ur celery.
Moulting cannot be called s disease since
it is a natural process of providing the bird
with ll'-iv plumage.
A bir should bn given ils bath, lie food
