18 Oro Denoro is sltuato at
lw° townsite on tho C. P. B,
miles in a direct line from the
famous Phoenix copper-gold
camp. The property was Iqcat-
etreight years ago by William
Corbett, who later obtained a
crown grant. Mr. Corbett dug
a great many prospect pits and
trenches showing ore over acres of the claim so that it. was
of ten spoken of as a mountain
of ore and has always been
counted on to make a mine. A
thousand feet of tunnel and
shaft work has been done on the
In January last Smith Curtis
was instrumental in organizing
the Denoro Mines, Ltd., of which
he is managing director. This
company acquired the Oro Den-
oroand intheiniddleof April last
six men under the superintendence of B. H. Anderson (now
superintendent of the Le Boi,
at Bossland) began development work. Three ledges
which were known to intersect
tho C. P. B. line, that crosses the
property wero attacked and
stripped of earth and rock capping with a view to shipping by
quarrying tlio ore. In a few
weeks tens of thousands of tons
of pay ore wore exposed. After
$1000 bad been spent the property was able to take care. of
itself, one of tho rare cases
where a large low grade property would pay from the grass
Subsequently a contract was
made with the Boundary Fulls
smelter which is claimed to be
the most favorable rate ever
given to any mine in the province, tho rate being on a sliding scale downward, according
to the excess of iron. The ore
is also rich in lime so that it is
not only self-fluxing but is capable of fluxing n largo proportion of silicious ore.
The excellence of the Oro Denero ore will be apparent when
compared with the self-fluxing
ore of the Granby company at
Phoenix, tho actual net cost of
smelting which that company
states to be $1.35 per ton. As
the smelter i.s doubtless making
a gootl profit on its contract for
the Denoro ore by using it to
flux other ores for which it

which will be maintained during the winter.
The ore bodies of the Oro Denoro cutting as they do up and
down the hill are as easily quarried as any in the world. For
a great many years to come no
hoisting or expensive machinery
will be needed,
With the cheapest qiMfy , uig 3
and the lowest treatment eharg-
es and with excellent pay values it should not be long before the Oro Denoro becomes a
dividend payer.
Copper mines have always
been an attractive investment
because as a rule they are more
permanent than other mines
and pay larger dividends. The
Bio Tinto copper mine in Spain
has been worked over2000 years
and is still the largest producer
of that metal in the world.
Taking tbe present working
mines of the United States that
have paid over $5,000,000 iu dividends, it will be found that seven
of them ai*e copper mines that
have paitl $153,000,000 profits of
an average of $23,300,000 and
Hve of them are gold, silver and
lead mines that have paid $41,-
800,000, or an average of $8,000,-
Altogether too much emphasis has been laid upon the
Boundary copper ores lieing
low grade. The contained metal values tire less than in many
other mining districts, but the
costs of mining aim sweltinj.,
ure also very niu'h less. Tbe
expression therefore should be
a relative term. In fact all the
big dividend-paying mines of
world with very few exceptions,
whether gold, silver, copper,
iron or coal make a profit of
but $J or $2 per ton and many
of them a less profit, but their
big inexhaustible tonnage
counts. No one thinks of calling the Butte copper camp a
low grade one, yet $10, $12 and
$13 ores owing to their refractoriness and to expensive deep
mining aro not so valuable as
that, of course, was sorted ore, j pressed it. "If the Hendryx
hut it is thought that which is; system could handle that stuff
being taken out,-now will go at| successfully, it could deal with
least$30 to the ton,and as itcan
be mined and treated for $15,
there should be a good profit
in Boderiek Dim ore. Work on
the property will be continued
throughout the winter.
The Emma.
At the Emma mine, Summit
camp, ore is to be shipped from
the south side of the claim, on
the B. C. mine spur, a small
steam hoist having been placed
therefor that purposo.
Blue Jay.
It is understood that the Blue
Jay, in Skylark camp, will bo
worked again. It is one of the
original locations in that catnp.
Wauconda Will Resume Work.
The Wauconda mine will resume operations within a month
and possibly within the next
ten days. One or more of the
ledges cut by the big tunnel will
be drifted upon for some distance. An effort will be made
to fully determine the value of
the property. If tliere is a good
pay shoot in the mine tho officers are determined to know
it beyond the possibility of
question. The lust six months
the mine was operated the management could not have been
worse and to this is attributed
the failure and shutdown.

and be it known that tliere are
but four of tho large mines in
Butte that make on their ore
a larger profit per ttm than is
made by the Boundary copper
mines, and two of these four at
most make only a few cents per
ton moro profit. For instance,
the big Anaconda mines, capitalized at $30,000,000, and which
havo paitl $23,000,000 iu dividends, made for the year ending
1st June, 1903, $1,002,000 profit
on 907,227 tons of ore or $1.78
per ton, but this includes profit
on smelting, converting and refining, all of which are done by
the Anaconda company. Hud
it to send its ore to reduction
works and pay our extra freight
rato on its metals to the New
York market, its profits would
be loss thin $1 pjt* ton of ore
Other Butte dividend payers
made during tho yoar a profit
of 90 cents, 83 cents nnd 18 cents
por ton on thoir ores respectively. Mi'. Walker recently in the
Boston Commercial figured that
the big Boundary mine owned
by the Granby conipany , can
make $1.80 profit per ton of ore.
Altogether the outlook for
the success of lho Oro Denoro
is very bright indeed. The action of the management in procuring at every stop the highest
and best expert lidvice is mos
commendable, antl if followed
by other companies in the initial stages of development of

Owing to the derailing of a
car near the Snowshoe last Saturday, no shipments were sent
out from Phoenix camp that
camp that day, but the next
day the shipments were unusually heavy. The regular quota
from the Granby mines is now
(il cars, or 2,000 tons per day.
The Snowshoe mine cannot ship
to the limit of its capacity as j lnofiern
the smelter is unable to Imdle'
its entire output.
After a short cessation of
shipments the Sunset mine,
in Deadwood camp, is once more
sending dii-vn i.s ore to the
company's smelter at Boundary

ger made a rich strike on the

Republic Mine Handed Over To
The stockholders of the Bo-
public Consolidated Gold Mining company, which owns the
Bepublic mine, have adopted a
resolution to assign all the property to Secretary W. G. V. Lap-
skil for the benefit of the credi
ors. The papers of assignment
have been prepared and only
lack the formality of signatures
to be complete. Thev will
probably oe execmeu sotm nun
filed for record.
Attorney W. J. 0. Wakefield,
representing the company, in
referring to the matter said:
"With some changes the. Bepublic mill could be arranged for
the installation of the Hendryx
system. I expect such a plan
wiil be carried out. If there is
no ore from the republic mine
to treat, there is plenty of ore
from other mines in that camp,"
The mill was the property pf
ihe Bepublic Power & Cyanid-
ing company. It is said to bo
one of the best constructed
mills in the west. Everything
about the plant is of the most
construction. Even the
ore cars have axles with ball
bearings. The mill antl equipment is said to represent an outlay of nearly $500,000. but it
failed to work successfully.
The mill company made a
common law assignment of all
its property to Mr. Lanskil
about eight months ago. He
was the secretary of both that
company and of the mining
company. The milling pioperty includes the plant, water
rights, etc. Tho debts of the
milling company are said to be
between $200,000 and $300,000,
and the debts of the mining
company are about $200,0(10.
There is little hope that anything will be left to the stockholders of eithei company after
the debts aro paitl by the assignee.
Hendryx Process for Kootenay.
The problem of handling the
low grade refractory iron ore
from the Kootenay mine at
Bossland has apparently boon
solved in tests of it mude here
with the Hendryx process of ey-
aniding, suys the Spokesman
C. M. Fassett, who has been
conducting the experiments,
said last night: "We have completed four runs ol ore which
comprised the most refractory
product lhat Mine Manager
William  Thompson could    se
I time ago returned $195 per ton, 'cure,' As   Mr. Thompson   ex
any ore in the mine. I do uot
feel at liberty to give figures,,
but I can only say that the results showed a handsome saving. The cost of reducing it
should not be greater than for
handling Bepublic ore. The
Kootenay ore crushes easily,
and Uie high percentage of iron
- composing nearly half of the
rock—does not seem to consume the cyanide unduly or to
interfere with the precipitation
of the metals."
As Mr. Fassett has expressed
the belief that Bepublic ores
can be treated for $1.50 a ton,
it would appear that the cast
of reducing Kootenay ores by
the same proce.su would bo well
within that margin. The living in freight, and smelter
charges under the present system of reducing tlie ores pn m-
ises to be the factor that will
put the Kootenay on a paying
basis. It has an enormous tonnage of low grade iron ore, running from $5 to $10, that ca.n
hardly be handled under existing conditions.
Cheaper Coal is Bound to Ccir.e.
(.'heap coal, the great need i'i:

There is more coal in Albert i
and British Columbia than is
buried in tho Allegheuies, and
it is only a matter of time before so much or it will be on the
market that the price will lie
hammered low enough to meet
the ordinary needs of commerce
and the manufactures.
The greatest fields of the
world are between the Kooky
mountains and the coast, the
Crow's Nest L'ass fields, covering hundreds of square miles,
has possibly the finest bituminous coal on the continent and
in inexhaustible quantities.
J. J. Hill, who is largely interested in these fields, has declared the deposit to constitute
the greatest known fields in the
world. There may be something to compare with it in the
frozen depths of Siberian soil,
but the secrets of that remote
region are still locked in ils

fields are reached by two rail

candidate iu the late election, if

If not, why notP   Tho district
of which the city of Vancouver
is a part has been represented
by a Liberal in  the Commons
since 1896.   Joseph Martin was
at the head of the poll in the
local election held in 1900.   For
gome reason the Liberal ticket
made a poor fight at the general elections held   on   October
third last.   There has been sufficient time since to do a good
deal towards perfecting the organization of a party presumably fairly well orgauized before
that date.   It is strange   that
any party in Vancouver or any
other city would allow themselves to become disorganized;
it is oven more strunge that
the party went into  the last
general election without a leader.   One would us soon expect
to hear of any army going to
battle without a general, or a
ship to sea without a captain,
as to hoar of a political party
going to the general elections
without a leader.   There was
every   reason why   a   leader
should have been selected under
the     circumstances.     Joseph
Martin on account of opposition to him within the Liberal
ranks resigned the leadership
shortly before    the    election.
The Liberal councillors should
have advised the appointment
of a successor ' to Mr. Martin.
Their failure to do so permitted Mr. McBride and his followers to state upon  every   platform in the province that Mr.
Martin's ^retirement was   only
temporary, that if the Liberal j
party were successful he would
again   assume the leadership.
No  unpredujiced  person   can
come to any other conclusion
than that the signal  defeat of
the Liberals in    the   general
election and  the recent  bye-
election  was due to  the fact

about other people aud the, gossip who unburdens her mind
of her own grievances. Of the
two the latter we believe is; the
I most vicious. At least the one
has the natural craving for
"news" that to her warrants .a
discussion of other people's affairs; the other is simply a
blackmailer who, to gain sympathy opens the door of that
sanctuary, the Home, to every

We wish every dairy farmer In the
land could possess and read the year
book of tho United States department
of agriculture for 1902, says Hoard's
Dairyman. On page 145 Is a chapter
devoted to "Dairying at Home ■ and
, Abroad." written by Major Henry E.
AlvortI, chief of dairy division. Major
Alvord spent a number of months ln
the summer of 1001 in Investigating tbe
dairy conditions and practices of the
lending dairy sections of Europe. Hlf
conclusions are bused on a sound, practical knowledge of the best practice In
America, and he draws some very instructive judgments from what he saw
und studied. On tbe question of dairy
entile he says:
"Dairy cuttle constitute the foundation and oil Important factor of the Industry." How docs this comport with
the ideas of thousands of dnlry farmers
in the United States who think that
beef blood, dual purpose blood, any and
all sorts nf blood, Is good enough with
them for a "foundation?" Ue further
"Wc have no dairy, cattle of our own
tn America. We have* adopted those
original nl In nnd brought from other
countries, Even ow 'native' or 'common' stock or 'scrubs' are but mongrels
of another continent. It la Impossible
to estimate the debt of the dairy farmers of this country to the breeders of
Ayrshlres and Guernseys and Holsteln*
Krieslnns and Jerseys In their native
lu nds, These nre the four races of cattle upon which mainly rest the present
and future prosperity and progress of
dairying In America."
Those are strong words, yet we cordially believe them to be true. If true
what sort of work Is nny dairy farmer
doing for himself or his country who
breeds beef blood Into his herd? Does
he see tbe future as It should be seen?
