TO ASSESS WATERLOO.
Company will be Reorganised on an
Assessable Basis.
The Waterloo Mining- Milling Com.
pany willdisorgani&eand reincorporate
as an assessable company with ils old
capitalization of 1,250,0110 shares of n
par value of 10 cents per share. The
the new conipany will give one share
of stock in theold company upon the
surrender of the old sto-'k.
At the meeting of the stockholders
held recently 1100,000 shares of stock
were represented nnd voted by actual
holders or hy proxy.
The amount fnr which the stock is
assessable is four cents per share, payable ill. a rate not to exceed two mills
per share per mouth. This assessment
will tiring the company $30,000, and it
was the belief of the stockholders
represenledal the meeting that not
more than one half of this amount
would he needed to demonstrate thnt
they had a mine on a dividend paying
tiasis.
The Waterloo property is located in
''amp McKinney, Within the past
year the stock has mercurialized in
price frnm one cenl per share to 12
tents, untl brokers consider it one of
the most widely disseminated stocks
on lhe local market.
Tlie ore is similar to that of the Car
i In ui, in the same camp. The vein hus
faulted repeatedly, necessitating con
siileralileextra work. The recent re
ports frnm the property are said to lie
favorable, and ah hough lhe mine has
been idle for some time, the manage
men I is sanguine that a few weeks
will place the preperty in good shape.
THE WAUCONDA.
More riachlnery for the Mine Arrives ut Midway.
Two more carloads of machinery,
being the balance of the plant fur the
Waucnnda mine, Toroda Creek, arrived in Midway on Tuesday, and is
lieing hauled lo the mine hy the
teams of lt. Meyerboff, who has the
or tract for hauling all of the machinery, for the Wauconda.
Aliout forty men are now emp'oyed
in erecting buildings and getting
ready fnr the mai hineiy as, soon as it
arrives at lhe mine. Some lii tlu delay
has lieen occasioned in getting on with
the work, caused hy the part of the
plant that was needed Hrsl lieing
shipped last. But as all of the machinery will l>e at the mine in the
course of Ihe next few days, nn more
delays of ihis nature will lie experienced,
Wilh the installation nf a compressor
md reduction planl at the Wauconda
and machine drills taking Ihe place of
ihe linn.1 article, great results may lie
looked for from tbis promising mine.
Economy in Mining.
The steady pressure from the necessity ot making savings and economies
somen here in the costs nf metal production, to offset the steady downward tendency of metal selling prices,
luis been the cause of many improvements in the mining and metallurgical
aris. The eiilightemrnt that Hntls its
birthplace in necessity, dealing wilh
the economics of mining has, clearly
defined the line of division lietween
production and consumption lo be nn
the production  side of  Ihe  ultimate
BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.
The tonnage of ore shipped by the mines of the Boundary
District during September, to 25th inst., so far as ascertained.
is as under :

the current year to September 25, 264,408 tons, making an
aggregate of 362,189 tons.
consumer pays iu one sum Is costs from
hi* standpoint. This wime sum re-
guided from the other end consists of
many items of separate Hat costs, at d
running wilh the separate Nat costs,
one or more separate items of profit.
In the development of the business
of mining, each of these ileitis has it,
turn been taken Into consideration l-y
tbe producer, and lhe effort nuidu to
make in it the maximum possll le
economy and saving, primarily in
maintain or increase the profit margin
agninst the constantly decreasing sale
prices. What itiay he termed the
trade handing nf the metal by middle
men between the lust producer, who
by labor or material added teal value
to the metal, and the consumer, wl.o
puts the metal directly into reproductive use ns capital, has been more or
less largely eliminated, and an economy of interest, on capital between the
taking of metal front the mine and its
delivery to the consumer, Thu etude
sum so saved increased the prolit
margin at Hist, hut in the end lhe
competition of Increasing production
tends again to ibe wiping nnt of tit*
piotit margin and forces additional
economies aud savings.
At ihe mine the mining costs have
received material reduction ihrough
the improvement in methods aid
machinery by which capital, whit h
has been becoming cheaper, is substituted for labor, which has been becoming denier. The metallurgical
costs huve received an even tins, r
searching for reducible terms. In the
aggregate enormous savings and economies have lieen effected hy the de.
velopuient nf processes by which all
the metals of one ore, o- the several
nietnls of several oies, interacting, lie-
tome all letliicid and utili/.able, and
by the constant improvement iu
mechanical appliances permitting, as
wilh mining, I he substitution of cheap-
er capital lor dealer lalior. The metal
manufacturing arts, long regarded m
entirely separate industries from ihe
metal mining and mrt.illoigy, huve
been added to and cuUlliined wilh Ihe
Iai ter to secure fun her savings ami
economies. Notably is this so in iron,
in which the single husiness now comprehends every slep from the ore, fuel
aud flux in the ground, to the finished
finally consumable article. The same
development is beginning iu lead mining, in zinc mining, and in copper mining.
The marked feature of the economic
changes in every item of these savings
and economics iu metal mining is tlte
substitution made of cheap capital for
dear labor. The la bur cost, irrespective nf the rate of wages, has not only
heen kept down, but it has been diminished, There has heen a constant
tendency to the cheaper production
with the higher wages. What was
observed long since as a law of Knglisli
industry generally, has proven particularly true of tbe mining industry,
which is distinctively American.
While it is by no means to be assumed that Ilie limit of saving and economy has been reached in tlie general
items nf cost considered above, the
margin of such saving and economy
has been reduced well down to its ultimate minimum, and it would seem us
if the one remaining cost item—transportation—was "the reducible item" of
lhe cost of metal production, The
problem nf freight cost in metal production is tint new, ami it cannot lie
said to be unstudied. Yel it has
been an item that, perhaps, more
lhan any of the ol tiers, hns seemed a
direct cost charge on the consumer
rather than on lbe producer. The
latier has nnly exceptionally given it
lhe effective analysis that has brought
results in saving.) and economies, In
lhe iron industry and iu the petroleum
industry this has been done with exceeding skill and success. In the general metal mining industry, however,
transportation remains whal may, to
the practical exclusion of all others,
be termed "the reducible item," The
consolidation of mining businesses has
reduced time between production and
consumption as a cosl item. Invention
and better technical skill have reduced
the waste of material und labor cost
items. There yet remains tn lie at;.
complished the reduction of space between product ion and consumption as
a cost item.— Mining and  Scientific

MONDAY. SEPTEMHEItmi. IIMI.
There is a marked difference during
the past week in the mining develnp-
iiienis of Ihis district. The satisfactory
returns from ore fnun iheliodie.whit'h
has prompted ils owneis lo make regular weekly shipments from lhe mine
lo the Oreenwood smeller, puts new
life into that portion of Hodie cainp
that is in thn immediate vicinity of the
Bodie mine, for there are a number of
properties on which considerable work
has been done, hm on which operations
hive been suspended pending the tte
suits received from receiittlevelopment
work nn the liodie, which work has
demonstrated beyond a doubt the rich
iicss of tbat mine. Work will now
he commenced on these properties
mid diligently continued nnlil their
win lb has been proven, for the values
of lhe ll.nlie ore are siitllcienily high
to encourage futther development in
that camp as the owneis of surrounding claims are almost certain that if a
ledge of any sine he encounter, tl tbey
have a paying mine. The arrival of
Ihe balance of the machinery for the
compressor and reduction plant at the
Wauconda mine is another encouraging Indication of ihu early advancement in lhe mines nf Toroda creek, It
Is also pleasing to mile that work has
been resumed tin lhe (ioleonda, in

believe that there is a decided revival

If you want, to Hnd not wbo the live
business men of any town are you have
only to peruse the local newspaper and
you will Hnd their names. Anyone
carrying on a business of any kind, no
matter how small, in a, town where a
newspaper i.s published will, if alive to
his own interests, advertise his business, Take the successful busine.-s
man and ask him to what he attributes
Iiis prosperity, and iu nine cases nut nf
every ten the question will meet wilh
the same reply: To advertising. Thousands, nn the nther hand, who have at
some time in their lives been engaged
in business, but have been unsuccessful, can attribute iheir failure to the
fact that Iheir names never decoraiett
lhe advertising columns of a newspaper. Tliere is a lime in lhe history
of every town when it may tint he
necessary to advertise, thai is when a
town is so small that il only contains
one business house of each kind,  but
I hat Is only in exceptionally new places,
and   most   of  the  towns   of   even
this comparatively uew province have
pasted ibal.  stage, and Ibe business
mail of almosl any town llnds tbat be
is mil Ibe only pebble  nn   lhe   beach,
that ''There are olhers."    Let once
competition lie engaged in, in any line
of business and il is the utmost folly
for anyone of them  to  expect   to  lie
successful without advertising.   Sun e
business men have an idea that all that
is necessaiy to advertise iheir husiness
is to have their names printed in large
letters on a sign,  nr nn the building
occupied by them.   This  idea is entirely erroneous.   In the majority of
cases the man who withholds his patronage from Hie newspaper ami thinks
all Ihnt is necessary to draw trade his
wav, is to have his name painted in
huge letters across his place of husiness
is entirely mistaken, for generally this
class nf people offer such poor inducements to i he public in exchange for
the coin of the realm, that Ihey would
tin far beti er if they bad  no sign, fnr
then they might   em rap the unwary,
not knowing whose place they were
drifting into, hut  once  the name of
the proprietor is seen, that is enough,
the woiild-be customer passes along,
for the man who does   not advertise
has tn resort to such petty methods of
getting hold of the almighty dollar in
order to make a living at all, that his
very name becomes offensive to Ihe
public,   Tlie  local   newspaper is the
hest means liy which the puhlic are
made acquainted with tlie names of
lhe live business men of a place, of
course yon  will  Hud men in nearly
every town, who cull themselves business men, that do not ndverlise, but
they are dead as far  as  the business
world is concerned.   In   this  age of
keen compel il ion in every conceivable
line nf business, such people have to
give way, sooner oi' later, lo men of
business met hods who are abreast of
the times,

The upset price Axed was for corner
lots $150, for lots next to corners $125
und for other inside lots $100. In several instances where there would otherwise have been competition there was
an understanding that the purchasers
having already huilton the respective
lots should not he run up loa higher
price than ihey .should offer themselves.
There were 108 more lots on the list,
hut no business was done iu connection
with these. The government has Inst
considerably by the long delay in offering the. hits for sale. Had they
lieen offered when railway construction was in progress it is very probable
that all would have been sold and >t

Opening a nine.
When tbe shaft nf the mine is sunk
ou the vein or  deposit,  in   the  early
stages of the development, the en Otis of loo common occurrence  to  Ilml
that the ore on I he sides of lhe sbafi
has been stuped out,   because  il   was
easy of access and conveniently mined
al small cost, says a scientiflc mining
journal.   Tliis is generally the prospector's Hrst error, and Ihe desire for
ore is in excess of Ihe means al hand
if acquiring it at greater dentil, and
on  that account prospect shafts are
seldom suitable for Ihe main working
shaft of Ihe mine.   When a shaft cuts
ir passes through an ore chute on the
vein when the mine has passed tlie
prospectsl age, Ihe temptation is presented lo extract the rich ore on the
sides of the shaft.    If Ihere are no
mining regulations in the district ui
no mine inspector,  these errors are
sure to bapp ti    The shaft of a mine
whether on or off the vein in the entrance tn the workings and should he

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here-
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

British Columbia Fruit. . Barlletls wns entirely ii mallet  of ..,
Tht. flrst carload of British Columbia P-"lrftllBe' the   skin-  presenting tin
fruit to arrive in Winnipeg this season ' ro"Kh,s'1 hnmn patches so fnmillai' in
was run on the Maephorson Fruit com. Ontario Bartlett. and also a cnmld'r-
pany's Biding lale Moudny afternoon,
snys lhe Commercial, Considerable
Interest, attitches to Ihe arrival of ihis
car, In Ihu pust shipments of fruil
in.in British Columbia l» ihis market
have not been satisfactory, and though
nil fruil handlers recognize t lie Bne
fl.ivor, many were nf the opinion that
Ihis fruit could tint he successfully
shipped for lung distances, Tliis sen-
Bon ihe British Columbia government,
acting through the Fruit Growers'association In purely educative instill],
linn) undertook to lest lhe mailer, In
July Mr. R. Jl. Palmer, special rom
missioner of the department of »gri-
ahle irregularity of shape, The opinion was expressed that the Winnipeg
market, baying been educated to the
appearance of the Washington Bart-
lett, was likely lo beshy of the British
Ooiumbia variety, fora time at least,
until Iheir preserving qualities beeoine
more widely recognized, This fruit
was all from Chilliwack, and Jir,
Metcalfe slated that pears especially
Bait lefts, from the Okanagan district,
would present a much more attractive
appearance, To sum up, it was gen
erally admitted that the condition in
wbich thi» ear arrived disposed of the
question of the practicability of ship-
*
ernl ions is the arrival of the car of
.fiuit above referred le, in charge of
.1. C Metcalfe, of Maplohurst fruit
farm, Hammond, II. ('., Hrst.vice-president of the fruil growers' association,
The ear was six days in transit, antl arrived here fully iced and temperature
iu a very satisfactory condition, It
inniii'tieil 800 cases (10,000 pounds)of
Italian prunes and eighty cases (4,000
|iiniiiil-)or It >t lift I ami Hiissnik pears.
The packing exactly resembled that of
the cars from California and Washing
Ion, lhe boxes being arranged with
good airspaces and thoroughly stripped
tn Imiil I hem in place.
Jl 'ssrs, HiiIiIit, Scotl uud Bright at
tendril the opening of ihe ear, on behalf of lhe Fi uii Exchange of Winni-
nipeg, The plums were opened liest
and proved a very line sample of Italian prunes, uniform iu size, beautifully
colored, of excellent Savor, and wilh a
noticeably small pit, Tin. cases were
the usual four basket crates, and ibe
baskets contained ihree layers each,
and were neatly faced, There was
o il) onecrillclsm offered on the packing, lunl ihal was Ihey were not pack
ed ugiil enough iu the layer to prevent
movement of the fruit, This also affected the weight. This was due to a
misunderstanding on lhe part of the
British Columbia people, their Idea
being tliul. each crate or ease slinulil
only contain twenty pounds, whetoas
the average crate from Washington or
Oregon contains about twenty flve
pounds, This, however, was prononnC'
eil merely u mul irr of detail.
Tlm pears were next examined and
some boxes near the top of tlie cur
were fun .1 In he a little over-ripe,
havli>* -      gathered rather too late,
The Bit   ark    pears  presented a liner
appearance   (han   Ihe Barlletls, nl-
Hi iugh lite variety is noi considered as
illiire, came through and discussed P|nB* B^'8'1 Columbia fruits to this
the situation with Ihe fruit men and ■'""'ket, The fails that these plums
the railway.   The result of I hese tlelili-1,lnfl I'ears come   later   in   the  Season
than the Washitigions will he no
detriment to their market, value here
as soon is itis understood that the supply can be depended upon, the average
housewife would greatly prefer to put
upas much fruit as possible in cooler
weal lier,
The plums will retail on the Winnipeg market at $1.25lo $1.80, ami tlie
pears at $2.76 to $3.00 per box,
Mr. Metcalfe will be here for a few
days and will then return to British j
Onlitinhin and make a formal report, tn
the Fruit Growers' association. He
will also call at the principal lowns uu
his return trip in inquire into the manner of handling the fruit—whether it
is done chiefly through wholesalers or
Individual enterprises, and also as to
Iho prevailing prices in these towns
and us to tbe possibilities of increasing
ttiule.
