HOW GOLD IS EXTRACTED.
The ordinary method of gold extraction, as almost everyone knows, is to
crush the ore lo a fire powder and run
this over amalgam plates of quicksilver. Th nnl.I is precipitated upon the
plates, and afterwards scraped ..If. Bul
liy this means, even l.y the besl de*
vices, only aln.nl half the gold values
are saved. Tlle rest goes nlf in a kind
of slim.* which is known as tiillliiira.
In South Africa the amount losl l.y
this met .luui is alums! exactly one-half
In other words, if tiie ore runs from $8
or $10 in Hie Ion, only $1 or $5 in gold
is gained. Il, is here lhat cyanide comes
into play. The "tailings" are gathered up and deposited into huge vals
containing a weak solution of cynnide
of potassium. This chemical compound hns a peculiar affinity for gold
und takes il up jusl as water dissolves
salt or sugar. The gold is held in s.ilu.
tion. When this leaching process, as
it is known, is complete, when all the
gold has lieen dissolved out, the gold-
laden liquid Is run through a kind of
filter made uf bright zinc shavings cut
very line. This precipitates the metal,
and afterwards when tlie solution uf
cyanide has lieen run olf, lliese zinc
shavings are put in clear water and
thoroughly shaken, with llie result
that the gold falls off and is deposited
in the liotloni of llie tub. Here it is
gathered up and put lhrough the refinery, und conies out, sometimes nl
most pure and si.iiietiii.es in a ionise
bullion,
Where ores are of low grade lhey
nre nut. put through Ihe stamp mills nt

nide. Tins is the case Willi theClippIl

ores of New Zealand and niniiy other
countries, In New Zealand 80 or 00
per cent of the gold values is ohlnined

I But Il.e new process bus mil always
been so successtiil. In Ollifiillll.l, for
example, It bus so fur U'eu found ..f
little value. Then, too, there Is among
milling men, or was until very recent
ly, a decided prejudice against lhe new
method. When il was lirst brought
out. (ive or six years ago it was hailed
as a panacea for every ill thai gold
mining knew. It wns to treat every
sort of ruck, and all with equal success.
And iu so many instances il signally
failed Unit ninny experienced men concluded that it wus not worth much of
anything at ull. The truth lay be
tween the Iwo extremes.
It would not be easy to make an ap
proximately accurate prediction as t.
the probable future production of gold
Competent experts have estimated tiie
total calculable value of llie gold-hear-
ing beds about Johannesburg at about
$2,500,000,(100, and those of all the
Transvaal at about, $_,S-0,000,(X)0, And
they calculate further lhat Ihe output
of the Transvaal by 1000, nr at teust iu
the year following, will reach the extraordinary total of $100,0t)O,(XI0ayear.
All over the world there is a similar
activity which even if it dues not lend
to equally prodigious results, is at
least sufficient to indicate a steady and
uninterrupted increase of the world's
store of gold.
Last year the United States, Africa,
and Australasia each put forth $44,000-
000 of the yellow metal. Russia was
only a little behind with $34,000,01X1.
Each of Ihese sums represents a heavy
increase uver 1801, and a vastly greater
product than lias been known in any
year within this generation, This in.
crease is all due to scientific treatment of large bodies of low grade urea,
ores  which  never cuuld  have   been
1 rented befure. Nor is lliere anything
lo indicate thai these low grade ores
are la'ing exhausted, but on the contrary It Is probable lhat yet larger
hi-lies will lie made to yield their
riches. The increase of the world's
output for llie last live years has aver,
aged 12 per cent, for each year, If the
rule of increase for lhe next five yean
averages no mole Ihall 10 per eel.I,
still the total for 1000 will reach the
stupendous sum of $320.1)00,0110. Thai
wuuld mean an output for the nexl
five years of $1,1)00,-00,1)00, or mure
than In any decide since 1800. II
would 111.am au output uf lhe lei. years
from 181)1 tu2000 uf norl. $2,000,000

Thai is equal lo nil lb.' yelliuv inelal

COLUMBIA RIVER AND WESTERN.
If the C. P- R. does not see its way
lo extend its Rolwoii-Hossland railway
westward to Okanogan lake this year
there is another ready lo fill lhe gap.
As is well known F. A. Heinz,* has applied for 11 charter fur a narrow gauge
railroad from Trail lhrough Rossland lo
the Boundary camp and Okanogan
lake. This road will be aboul 200 miles
lung and second in importance only to
the Crow's Nest. Pass mail aiming lhe
mads likely tu be built this year. Iu
an interview iu the Butte Miner lasl
Monday Mr. Heinze is quoted as fol-
lows:
"The matter has not shaped itself so
that it can lie given out for publication,
Of course it is no secret tliat the Boundary district has nn railroad and that
its vast weall li lies dormant on account
of Ihis fact is alsu 110 secret. Naturally there isa movement on fool to
supply this lung felt want, tint 1 am
not iu a posiltou lu give the details."
" Is It an assured fact thul ihe railroad will he built?" was asked.
"Yes, I think it is. I am positive
I liat the cuuiilry needs a railruad, and
needs it badly mid it wuuld be a paying Investment. The uul ural resources
of the country through which the proposed extension is contemplated, are
great and Inexhaustible. However,
specific detail us lo its plans nnd personnel uf the contemplated movement
would be premature In give out at Ihis
time, Within a very short time the
plans unit specifications may be ready
for publication,
As shown hy the map Ihe railroad
leaches all Ihe numerous mining
camps of the Bnunilary district. Il
will be a narrow gauge mad equipped
with mogul engines and llie largesl
capacity of freight curs. The capital,
it is understood, has been subscribed
and ready to be paid in as soon as a
few minor details of right, of way. etc.,
are completed. At all events, il. Is expected that the road will la. finished
by next fall and iu full operation by
Nov. 1."
A CANADIAN MINT.
Seualor Mclnnis of British Columbia,
made lhe following remarks iu the
Senate on the debate ou the speech
from the throuei
" In regard to the paragraph which
relul.es to I he development going ou in
British Columbia, more particularly in
the mining regions, I may say tliat. I
am very much pleased lu find Ihal.
what I staled on llie floor of the house
some years ago is receiving attention,
Al lhat lime I urged upun the Government the necesily of establishing
mints to enable us lo coin our own
money, pointing out thai Canada has
produced within tlle lasl 25or 30 years
over $85,000,000 of gold, whicli has all
heen shipped out of the country and
coined silver In the United States ur
England. On that occasion 1 predicted that Brilish Columbia in tin. near
fm ure w.nild liecome one uf the greatest silver producing countries In lhe
world. A great many bun. geulleiiieu
thought at the lime that] was drawing largely upon my Imagination, but
I am happy In be able lo luy nuw that
during the lasl year over $750,000 of
gold aud nearly $2,500.1X10 of silver has
1 11 laken oul of ihe province.   In all
probability lhe annual output of silver
alone will shortly aiiiuiiut to from
$7.(100,01X1 to $10,IXXI.IXX), because must
f Ihese mines are jusl now beginning
lo Is* developed, Many of them are
inly iH'ginniug to ship ore, bul thai ore

I make .1 unto of what. I mentluncd
a few years ag..-I do not think lie was

tliat llu* house was led by tlle late Sir
John Abbott—1 hope be will take into

then made, and Uial hewill in tlie near
future establish a mint Iii Canada, li

OIL IN EAST KOOTENAY.
One of the various resources of Kast.
Kootenay waiting fur developinenl is
iu the southeastern corner of the district. This is a section of counlry hut
little known and which is separated
from lhe remainder of the district by a
high range uf muunluins. The Manual outlet of the valley is down lhe
Flathead river into Montana, and Mullen rest railruad is lhe Great Northern,
Some years ago attention was called lo
Ibis section through lhe finding of
crude oil in lhe possession <>f soon*
Sloncy Indians who annually hunted
in that valley, and lhey were induced
lo show some millers where lhey had
obtained the oil, which they, the Indians, were iu Ihe habit of using as a
medicine for complaint- of all kinds
The surface indications are good, nnd
two different kinds of oil have belli
obtained. On Kislineena creek, 11
short distance north of lhe inlet national line, a black oil, niniili.it In lhat.
nf Pennsylvania and Obi., nils is found.
But on Sage creek, Mime eight miles
north, lliere is found un oil ihal is
nearly pure, of a liglil yellow color,
which niil burn in a lump as it collies
from Ihe ground. Close, by lliere is
natural gas escaping fnnn the liedrork,
which burns freely 011 ignition. Some
uf Ihis ull sent lo the Geological .Museum at Ottawa caused considerable
excitement and comment, and was
pronounced a fraud ou account of |U*
purily. Dr. Selwyn, the head uf llie
department, made a special trip into
the valley, and was sill prised tu find
Ihe oil genuine, and also Ihal Ihis oil
was I.mud iu the Cumbrian formation,
which was something unknown, as all
the oilfields hitherto discovered liave*
been in the Trenton limestone.
Directly due east of Sage creek and
on the eastern slope of lhe main ridge
of lhe Hocky muunluins, iu Alberta,
(here are plenty of surface indications1

indications uver such a wide urea and
in the same furiniillou would go to
show that lliere is a large oil Held

LIGHT IN DARKNESS.
A new light lias lieen discovered by
Prof. Willielm Cnurad Roeulgeii, of
Wurzburg, Germany, whicli scientists
asserl will penetrate wood, allium! I issue, aluminum, uud lend, The oilier
metals for the most purl, remain opaque. Tills new light is developed hy
menus of a Crook's 111 be and au cirri 1 i-
cal current, ll Is said that by menus
of the new light Prof, Roentgen photographed Mont Blanc tin a night when
it was sodark lhat the outline uf Ihe
innutituin could uol lie seen with lbe
aid of au opera glass. Yet the pli,a,,
graph was perfect. Prof, Campbell
Swiiituu, by Ill-lilt of Roentgen's discovery, photographed the skeleton nf a
living Iuu ni, phosphide of lime, hone
matter, being opaque to ihe new light.
Prof. Swinloii also phologriipheil several coin iu a leather pocket hunk, only lhe images of thi' coin appearing.
It wuuld seem thai lhe practical application of ihis new light io scientific
investigation might luban great re\e-
la thins for Ihe future,   Ii is true thai
of llie nietals are opsquc (o il, bul llle

used also iu delecting irregularities in

being Imperfect.
Tbe value of lhe new light along Ihis
line appears as boundless. A lin,r**iin-
aginary view uf ils application, is that
it might some day enable (be prosper*

A restaurant of the kind known as
" chop-houses" has been started nt
(irun.I Forks. This will lie a great
convenience in many ways.
"Dutch Jake," a celebrated character from Spokane, and at one linn, iiniil-
lionaire, was in Midway lasl week. He
hopes to reliieve bis fortunes nn the
reservation.
Another new stage line lias sprung
into existence, which will cuter tu the
traveling public between Grand Forks
and Marcus, the, coining summer. This
makes three lines already running ■, between these two points.
It is rather a curious fact that the
29th of February which was Saturday's
dale, does n.il occur again for eight
years, 1000 not heing a leap year. The
ladies should carefully note Ibis coincidence and take time by tlie forelock.
Verliuni sap.
Sixty horses are nniv lieing used nn
tbe different stage lines lietweili Marcus and Penticton, and soon this mini-
lier will lie increased, Alsiut half lhe
nun.1.cr is being made use of by Messrs.
Manley k Averill upun the line which
tuns between*' Marcus, ('rand Forks,
nnd Mid nay.

The herd of cattle In-lunging In Kerr

whicli nun,ber fortv liciul, ill* nil four
anil five year old steers und spayed

heavier than local bred beef.
Mr. ti. ti. Fowler left on Morrison'*,

been iu Ibe Boundary creek camps for
many months past, .-ind is connected
wilh the Thompson aud Fowler deal

New York having a two-fold errand,
vil, to visit n brother who is at presenl
lying sick unto death, and to .cumuli
with the syndicate who are desirous
of making iuve.sl me.ils heie, on matters nf business connected with the
sa.iie. Mr. Fowler expects to return
in iiIkiiiI ii luoiilli. and his appearance
will lm eagerly luuked forward to,
The postal mil li.H-i.lics are awakening tu the necessity"of furnishing guod
l.iuil accuniinoilalinn ill points of importance which have recently sprung
inl.it existence, and .us a.-insult a pust-
officii will he opened at Greenwiiud
Oily today, urrangen.eiits having been
made with Mr. Miller, the contractor
who carries the mail between Pentlc-
ton and Grind Furks, for au extension
of service tu this thriving little town,
A guod poslollici' at this point will he
a great, convenience to a large number
of miners, and will certainly l.e much
appreciated by them, as it will do
away with tlie necessity ot their hilling tn come as formerly, several {idles
every week to gel Iheir mail. The

is a marksman of peculiar skill, as the
numerous trophies which adorn his
walls testify. Hut il was not until the
other day tliat t he deadly accuracy of
his aim was proved beyond dispute,
when Mr. Ingrim gave ail exhibition
of his prowess for u wager. A ten
cent pieoe was used as n murk aud inserted al a distance of fifty paces in
the liark of a pine tree. Mr. Ingriiu
