SAMPLING  ORE,
Mr. W, Pellew-Harvey hus recently
returned tiom a trip to England, aud
iu conversation wilh a Vancouver
World representative, in part said:
In conversation with many mining people
wliilc away, the question was asked an to
whether the ores sent to Aiiiericiin smellers
were wimpled at the works or before shipment,
t lind to inform them that such wus nut the
ease, when il wus pointed out for the mine
owner to receive full advantage in operation
and in competition from all sources, sampling
works should certainly be eslablishcd al one
or two central shipping points, My opinion Ik
ilmi such an opening possesses tlie best chances
outside of mining development, and there
should undoubtedly be public sampling works
in Kootenny.
That such a question should be asked
hy people so far away from British
Columbia, shows how keenly alive
mining men iu other parts of the world
are to the true advantages lhat should
he derived from mining operations
successfully carried on. Not. only to
Kootenay would the sampling works
he a benefit, tint to olhei portions of
I the province, and in fact. t,o any sec-
i lion from which ore is being drawn for
export to foreign smelters. Concentrating plants should also he added, as
hy this means the hulk of much of the
ure (hat is now being seui out of
Brilish Columbia could he reduced,
thereby saving materially the freight
charges against ihe bullion in the ore
shipped, By ihe adoption ofa process
of wet concentration, it is a question
whether or not many hundreds of
thousands of tons of ore could nol be
healed and made ready for market
aud shipped out of districts such as
Boundary Creek, even under lhe present existing circumstances governing
transput tatlun.

OXFORD  WON.
The atth annual boat race helween crews
representing the universities of Oxford and
Cambridge wis rowed on lhe lini inst., over the
usual course from Putney to Mortlake, a distance of four und a (|ii;irter miles. Oxford won
by barely two lengihs in ID minutes I:! seconds.
Oxford 1ms now won .11 uut of lhe,'it races rowed
and has been tlie winner eight years in sue
eesHion.
Betting was 5 to 1 on Oxford. The usual
crowds assembled at, all points of vantage
ttlon-j lhe course,
An admirable slarl was made al, 2.24, Cum-
bridge got off sharper than Oxford,ami atthe
Duke's Head, a minute after the Blurt, had the
nose of llieir hunt lu the front, Tiiey were pull.
ingMlo the minute, while the Oxfords were
striking 'M, with llie long clear pull ho characteristic of the 1MI7 Oxford crew. It soon begun
tu tell, antl al Claspers Oxford wusai|uarteruf
a length ahead and coming away, booh having
half a length lead. At Waldon s Oxford's men
were rowing well within their strength and
pulling in most admirable style. They passed
the Crablrcc wharf (hree-quaJtcrs of a length
io the good. Cambridge Boon spurted and succeeded in Blightly reducing Lhe Dark Itlues
lead, though Oxford was rowing in the most
perfect furm, which could not be said uf Uam-
bridge, Oxford shot under Hammersmith
bridge a length ahead, amid uprorious cheers
from the dark blue partizans ou both hanks.
There Cambridge began to feel the effect uf
Oxfords wash and at the Lead mills.one mile
six furlongs and lifty yards from Ihestarl, the
race was prgclicaly over. Oxford was coming
right away and leaving Ihe Cambridge bout
as If il were standing siill. Al the |invcs,oue
mile 1 furlough tin vardfl from the start, Oxford
was rowing,'ft and Cambridge was striking:t2,
wiih lhe dark blues increasing their lead Io
lliree lengths at Humes Hriilgc, where Oxford
was sliil hi perfect form, and ll was very obvious llml Cambridge had hod enough of it,
Some of the light blues were palpably dismissed
al Humes Bridge Fernlo called for a final
ellbrl nud for a lime I he Cambridge crew gained
on the Oxford. The hitter, however, wlthoul
undue spurting passed the judges' boat easy
winners by a hare two lengihs iu the second
