Reconstruction of the Brandon and
Qolden Crown (lining Company.
Th* following circular has been addressed to the shareholders nf the
Brandon and Golden Crown Mining
('(■iiii*iiiiV. limited liability :
The proponed re-construction of the
company of which ymi received notice
some weeks ago has heen accomplished,
the necessary resolutions having lieen
passed unanimously at a lueetiiiK at
which more lhan six-sevenths of the
stock was represented. The new company has lieen duly organized and the
agreement for the transfer to it nf the
undertaking has lieen executed and
registered.
As the liquidator's notice, which
prohahly is eow in ynnr hands, informs you, each holder of shares in the
old company, is entitled within a
limited lime lo claim an equal number
of shares in the new company of the
same par value ($1,001, hut subject to
calls u. an amount not greater than
live cents a share. The new directors
think it an opportune time to place
hefnieyitii the position of the mine,
and losl ate what they believe to he
ils pros|»ects.
As ynu aie aware the Golden Crown
isa full-sized mineral claim (1500x1500
feel) in Wellington canip,siiiiatewiih-
in two and a half miles of Phoenix Inroad. The wnrk done on itis as follows : There is a prospect shaft of 63
feet, a tunnel of 3_t feet, and a main
shaft vertical, wilh double compartments, iiii feet deep, tiuibeieil and
built in a very permanent maimer
throughout. A( the 100, 150 and 300-
font levels there is in all nearly 2,900
feet of work, consisting of crosscuts,
drifts, raises, winzes, and slopes. The
plant consists of a 80-horse •lower hnri-
zonliil return lobular I-oiler, a 30 nurse
power hoisting engine, a 12x18 Rand
straight line air coinpiessnr, a :KtxS air
receiver, four inarliin* drills, a 10x7x10
Knnwlrs sinking pump, a 4x8x1 Snow
duplex pump, a plat form cage and all
necessary accessories. There air two
large ore l>ing,v,|ram«ays, etc., and
,kink, l««irditig and other houses, all
well built. The ahove work and plant
have entailed an expenditure of about
ninety thousand dollars.
Ore to the extent of over 2,200 tons
was, during 1900. shipped to the smel-
j I its, the it-turns from which ran from
I $8 to $21.98.   There are strong reasons
j for thinking that these returns were
! not nearly as large as the ore was en-
j titled to, hul in any event the charges
fir freight and smelting, then obtain*
] ing, wete so high ($7.00 a ton) 'hat the
j company's pmtit was much less than
it ought to have been.   The freight
| haul waa alxiut 120 miles while now
tliere are Iwo sinelieis  within  a  dis
' tance of twenty-two miles  by  rail.
I The cost of freight awl tieatiuetit at
present is little more than half what it
: waa when our nre was smelted, and it
is expected that still further reductions
will he made for treatment.   If when
we shipped,   the  rate,  had   been  as
favorable as they will he fur the future,
the mine wonld easily hare paid for
ita own development as it proceeded.
Theohjecl of Ihe reconstruction is
to pay the debts lhat ate against the
mine, and t.i develop it to the extent
necessa.y to locate its principal ore
li-xliesand get them into shape fir
economical and continuous shipping.
To do this it is necessary that the
shareholders should cooperate and
that the call on the stock should he
paid. Al least a niouih and a half
musl elapse Mween calls, and the
ilirectnisdn not propose to make auy
call greater t han one cent. They lio-ie.
moreover, that all the calls need nol be
made, Ihere is gi awl reason to believe
tbat after the Hrst twn or three have
been met. the debts arranged, and
work re commenced, lhe treasury stock
can lie sold fia- enough lo make further calls unnecessary. It is pro
posed (hat (he further development
wnrk shall he done thro.igli a print ical
mine manager who will reside on the
property and who, with the assist nice
of a consulting engineer, will lie ahle
to do the work to lhe liest advantage.
The directors consider the mine's
prospects bright. Few mines in the
Boundiry country stand higher in the
opinion of mining men, few produce
ore of as high a grade, tliere is every
indication that ore will la- found in
paying quantities, nnd the facilities
for mining aud shipping and smelting
are, for Ihe future, excellent. A spur
track from tlie ('. P. K. line leading to
I'hoenix runs right into tlie property
under the on-Inns. The tad ihat the
railway company huilt this specially is
itself a strong proof of the mine's iep-
illation. They had nn examination
made, and ii|«ni tbe repoil received
Imiil the spur.
The head olllce iff the new company
is at Brardmi, Manitoba, nnd I he directors ill • as follows: Hon. Hugh J.
Macdonald and William I.. Parrish of
Winnipeg ; Hen. Senator Kirchoffer,
His Honor Judge Cumberland, George
R. Coldwell, K. C, Andrew Kelly,
Frederick Nation and Joseph B. t'urran
of Brandon, and William A. Fuller, of
Greenwood, B. c. These men aie
.representative of all classes of the
shareholders. Alining them are a
number who bought their stock when
the price was near its highest point.
They are one and all deeply interested
in the mine and they promise a careful
and economical management of its
affairs,
The secretary will lie glad to receive
from each shareholder, on the blank
fnnn sent out by the liquidator, the
necessary claim for stock in the reconstructed cou pany at an early date,

FIRE AT ARMSTRONG.
Disastrous Conflagration the  Result
of a Crszy Man's Action.
A disastrous Are visited the town of
Armstrong on the Kith inst., and resulted in the complete destruction of
the tnisiness part nf ihe town. About
two o'clock a, iu. tire was discovered
in the store of Hardy, Wright & Co.,
and within an hour or so 18 buildings
were reduced to ashes.
An old man named Eagles, who was
evidently out of his mind, said that -i
number of people were trying to poison
him, and in revenge he set tire to the
store of Hardy, Wright & (Jo. He
was arrested aud sent lo Kamloops
jail lo await trial.
Following is an estimate of Ihe loss
and insurance, prepared hy a business
man of Armstrong, and which is probably not far out; Wood, Cargill Co.,
loss J85,000, insurance $18,000 : Hardy,
Wright k Co., loss 97,600, insurance j
*4.D00 : B. Francis, loss $3,000, instil- i
ance $1,5011 ; Bums k Burns, loss
$2,000. insurance $1,500 ; Fraser & Pat*
chett, loss $2,000. insurance $1,000 ; F.
Bernard, loss $1,800, insurance $700 ;
C.Addcson. loss $1,000, insurance $450;
Hawkins Bins., loss $11)0, no instir
unee; I. Fair, loss $800, insurance
$400; I.O. P.-hail, $8(1). insurance $300;
Masonic hall, $1,000, insurance $400.
The following were uninsured : Hardy,
Wright & Co., warehouse $300; Dr.
Vankleek, oflice effects $100; T. Daniels, household effects $250; W. Bilker,
household effects $150; W. T. Marshall, potatoes in car $150. Olher
losses of minor amounts have not yet
lieen estimated.
Nothing dismayed by the disaster,
the enterprising business tirms nre already making arrangements lo rebuild, and Wood, Cargill Co., Hardy.
Wright k Co and Burns k Flurns
bave started business again in hastily
constructed sheds. General sympathy
is everywhere expressed over the
heavy blow sustained by the thriving
town uf the Spalluuiclieeii.
That Hope fountain Pass.
A despatch to the Nelson Miner
from Victoria, dated Aug. 15, says :
News hns just been received litre that
while the government exploration
party was laboriously toiling In the
summit in Hope mountain, Smith
Curtis, believing that the government
move was designed in favor of the
Spence's Bridge route, t-mk two men
and found a feasible route Ihrough the
mountains. One of Dewdney's men,
who wns sent to the railioad puss, to
spy out the land, found a |Hist with
the words "Smith Curl is, August 2nd,
3,050 fee(, nnd don't yon forget it"
Curtis went in from Princeton up tn
the new government townsite of Tul
auieen, then up Tulameen river to
Railroad creek, from there to the head
waters of Coquehalla river, thence
down Coquehalla to Hope. In three
weeks Curtis is going in again (o Hope,
with a Victoria civil engineer, taking
all levels and gradients up Coquehalla
from a point where he left off. He is
also going lo explore the pass called
Similkameen Pass and closer lo the
boundary. Curtis made the announcement of finding a feasible route at a
banquet held at Princeton last Thuts
day night on the occasion of the completion of the government bridge
there. The announcement is creating
great enthusiasm in the Boundary and
Coast districts.
IN SHERIDAN CAMP.
Work on Various Properties Meeting
With Success.
Resumption of work in some of the
mines has again brought Sheridan
camp into notice. Sevcial months
since there was a general closing down
anil with a single exception the close
down was tight. D. M. Snyder, Ihe
man who made the cninp what it is,
was in Republic Inst week nnd gave
the following Information :
"I have had a force of men working
for a iiiiinliei of dnys on the Kitiie
Clyde and Rebekah claims. They are
pari of Ihe holdings of Ihe company
that own the Zalla M. Theobjectof
working these clninis now is to have
them in shape to he shippers by next
spring ns hy tba( time we expect an
millet for our ores through one of the
railroads that, nre being constructed
between Grand Forks and Republic.
We know that we have a greal mine
in the Zalla M. and ns the Ki!lit* Clyde
and Rebeknh are on (he same ledge we
are confident th;it when fairly well
opened, we can show thai 'bey loo aie
mines of fnr more than ordinary richness.
"The Kittie Clyde has been opened
to :i small extent in many places
throughout ite entire length. It shows
a well defined iedge with good walls at
all points, and there appears to he a
preuy uniform grade of ore. I mu
sinking a shaft mi the property near
the southern Ixmtidary line. It lias
reached a depth of 50 feet, It was
liegun liefore Ihe close down, and presented such an iiivilingappearance that
I decided to continue it. The depth to
wbich it will lie extended is a matter
that I have um yet fully decided, bul
il will be continued for a consideral le
distance, and then the ledge will be
drifted upon, ntnl I lie ore sloped out.
The ore that is coming ullt of the shaft
is uieelinirmy expectations. The walls
are smooth nml haul and go down at
an angle that will render the extraction of ore easy nnd cheap.
"The Rebekah joins the Kittie Clyde
on the north and is but a short distance sour li tif the Zalla M. The ore is
similar lo lhat ou th" Kittie ( lyde but
the vein has not heen exposed t<i the
same extent. I have a shnfl on the
claim that is ahoul 50 feet in depth. I
have encounteied some good looking
ore, but as I have not yet crosscut the
ledge its width is a matter of specnl -
tion. Howev-r, as lhe ledges in the
camp vary in width from three to
seven ftet, it is leasonabie to believe
that it will prove to he four or live feet
in width. Work will be continued
until I have determined its value. If
it proves 'o be ns promising as now
seems probable, it will he put in shape
lo produce ore in shipping quantities
at the earliest possible dnte.
"No work will be done on the Zalla
M. for some time unless the present
plans aie discarded. The mine is in
tine shape to produce a large amount
of ore, but ihe cosl of transporting it.
by wagon to Midway, the nearest
point of railroad communication, wns
so grenl ihat in justice to the stockholders it was decided some time since
to close ilown. When the conipany is
satisfied that il can have the b'iie(i( of
the roads projected between Republic
andGrand Forks il will at once resume.
The mine is opened in such shape thnt
ore can be broken on a week's notice.
It is equipped Wilb a lluve drill com*
pressoi plant, and openid by shaft anil
tunnel to a depth of SOO feet.
"The Phil .Sheridan, which IS inule-
bond and lease to .Ijiiiics Oronlli, is
showing up in Hue shape. The shaft is
almost 100 feel in depth. The ore body
is four feel in width and good for
about $100 per (on. I did not go down
ihe shaft, hut an examination of the
dump convinced me thai Ihe claims
made for the property lire not fill from
the ical facte. The ledge has grown
stronger and more uniform i i width
and value from Ihe surface tothe pit-sent level. There is every leason to I e*
lieve thnt the claim wili turn into an
extensive mine under Mr. Cronin's
management, He has already a big
shiptin nt ready for transportation lo a
smelter."
Killed in a Vancouver Mine.
Vancouver. B.C., Aug. 12—There
was an explosion today in Extension
mine No, 3, on Vancouver island. The
only man known to be below was
Qiiinn, the Ore boss, who was probably
killed. Search parties have lieen unable lo enter yet owing to the afterdamp.
The mines are not working at present owing to the San Francisco dock
strike, heme ihe men were not below
at the time. The cause of ihe explosion
is unknown.

Reconstruction of the Brandon and
Golden Crown flininc Company.
The following circular ha* been Addressed to the shareholders nf the
Brandon and Golden Crown Milling
Company, limited liability *.
The proposed re-ci mst run ion of Ihe
company of which you received notice
some weeks ago has heen accomplished,
the necessary resolutions having lieen
passed unanimously at a meet ins: at
which more than six-sevenths of the
stuck was represent ■-(!. The new coinpaiiy has lieen duly urbanized and the
agreement for the transfer to it nf the
undertaking has heen executed and
registered.
As the liquidator's notice, whicli
prohahly is now in ymir hand*, in-
forms yon, each holder of shares in the
old company, is entitled within a
limited lime to elaini an equal number
of shares in the new company nf the
same par value ($1.00), hut subject to
calls to an amount nnt greater than
Hve cents a share, The new directors
think it an opportune time tn place
liefiiieymi the position of the mine,
and lo state what Ihey believe to he
its prospect*.
As ynu aie aware the Gulden Crown
isa full-sized mineral claim (1500x1500
feel) in Wellington camp, situate within two and a half miles of Phoenix hy
road. The work done on it. is as fol
lows : There is a prospect shaft of SI
feet, a tunnel of 322 feet, and a main
shaft vertical, with double compartments, iiii feet deep, timbered and
buill in a very permanent manner
throughout. At the UIO, ISO and 300-
font levels there is ill all nearly 2,300
feet of work, consisting of cross-cuts,
drifts, raises, winzes, and stupes. The
plant consists of a OOhnrse puwer hnri-
ziiui.il let urn tubulin- boiler, a 30 horse
power hoisting engine, a 12x18 Rand
strniglit line air cnmpiessiir, a 30x8 air
receiver, fnur machine drills, a 10x7x10
Knnwlrs sinking pump, a 4x0x4 Snow
duplex pump, a platform ciige and all
necessary accessories. There me two
large ore liiin,i,(riimuiiys, etc., and
.iMiik, boarding and other hoo*es, nil
well built. The above work and plant
have entailed an expenditure nf about
ninety thousand dollars.
Oii> lo the extent of over 2,200 tons
was, during 1900. shipped tu the smel
let's, the returns from w Inch ran from
$8 to 921.90, There are strung reasons
for thinking that these returns were
not nearly as large as the ore was entitled to, hut in any event the charges
fir freight and smelt ing, then obtaining, were so high (97.00 a ton) that the
roinpany's pmflt was much less lhan
il ought to have lieen. The freight
haul was about 120 miles while now
there are two sinelieis within a distance of twenty-two miles by rail.
The cost, of freight and treatment at
present is litlle more than half what it
was when our ore was smelted, and ii
is expected that still f nether reducl ions
nil! be made for treatment. If when
we shipped, the rates had been as
favorable us they will he for the future,
the mine would easily have paid for
ilsown development as il proceeded.
The object of the re construction Is
to pay the debts th.it are against the
mine, and to develop it to the extent
uecessaiy to locate its principal ore
bullies and gel them into shape for
economical and continuous shipping.
To do Ihis it is mcessnry Ihnt the
shareholders should co operate and
that the call on the stock shnuld lie
paid. Al least a month aud a half
must elapse lietween calls, and the
directors do not propose to make any
cull greater t han one cent, They hope,
moreover, that ill the calls need not lie
made, there is gnod reason to believe
that after ihe Hrst two or three have
been met. the debts arranged, and
work re commenced, the treasury stock
cm he sold fin- enough lu make further calls unnecessary. It iB pro
posed that the further development
work shall be done thro.igli a practical
mine manager who will reside on the
property and who, with the assistance
of a consulting engineer, will Iai able
to do the work to the liest advantage.
The directors consider the mine's
prospects bright. Few mines in the
Boumhry country stand higher in the
opinion of mining men. few produce
oro nf as high a grade, there is every
indication that ore will he found in
paying quantities, and the facilities
for mining and shipping aud smelling
ara, for the future, excellent. A spur
track from the C. P. R. line hading to
I'hoenix runs right Into tlie property
under the ore bins, The taut that, the
railway compuny built this specially is
itself a strong proof of the mine's reputation. They had an examination
made, and upon the report received
built the spur.
The head olllce in* the flew company
is at. Brandon, Manitoba, and tin-direr-
ton aie as follows : Hon. Hugh J.
Macdonald and William I., I'-ii'iish uf
Winnipeg j Hon. Senator Kirchoffer,
His Honor Judge Cumberland, George
R. Coldwell, K. O., Andrew Kelly,
Frederick Nation and Joseph B. Curtan
nf Brandon, and William A. Fuller, of
Greenwood, B. C. These men are
representative of all classes of the
shareholders. Among them are a
number who bought their stock when
the price was near its highest pnint.
They are one and all deeply interested
in the mine and they promise a careful
and economical management of its
affairs.
The secretary will he glad to receive
from each shareholder, on the blank
form sent out hy the liquidator, the
necessary claim for stock in the reconstructed con pany al an early date.

FIRE AT ARMSTRONG.
Disastrous Conflagration the Result
of a Crazy Alan's Action.
A disastrous Are visited the town of
Armstrong on the 101 h inst, and resulted in ihe complete destruction of
the business part nf Ihe town. About
two o'clock a, in. Hie was discovered
in the store of Hardy, Wright k C>„
and within an hour or so 16 buildings
were reduced to ashes.
An old man named Kagles, who was
evidently out of his mind, said that a
numher of people were trying to poison
him, and in revenge he set, Are to the
store of Hardy, Wright A Vo. He
was arrested and sent to Kamloops
jail lo await trial.
Following is an estimate of the loss
and insurance, prepared hy a business
man of Armstrong, and which is probably not far out; Wood, Cargill Co.,
loss $35,(100, insurance $18.000; Hardy,
Wright k Co., loss $7,1)00, insurance
$4,000 ; B. Francis, loss $3,000, insurance $1,500; Bums _ Burns, loss

Null,ing dismayed by lhe disaster,
the enterprising business Hiius are already making arrangements to rebuild, and Wood, Cargill Co., Hardy,

That Hope flountaln Pass.
A despatch to the Nelson Miner
fnun Victoria, dated Aug. 15, says :
News has just been received litre that
while the government exploration
party was laboriously toiling to the
summit in Hope inountain, Smith
Curtis, believing that the government
move was designed in favor of the
Spence's Bridge route, took two men
and found a feasible route through the
mountains, One of Dewdney's men,
who wns sent to the rail mad puss, tn
spy out the land, found a |sist with
the words "Smith Curtis, August 2nd,
3,050 feet, and don't ymi forget it."
Curtis went in from Princeton up tn
the new government townsite of Tul
aim-en, then up Tulameen river to
Railroad creek, from there to the head
waters of Coquehalla river, thence
down Coquehalla to Hope. In three
weeks Curtis is going in again lo Hope,
with a Victoria civil engineer, taking
all levels and gradients up Coquehalla
from a point where he left off. He is
also going to explore the pass called
Siinilkauieen Pass aud closer to the
boundary. Curtis made I he announcement nf tlnding a feasible route at n
banquet held at Princeton last Thins
day night on the occasion of the completion of the government bridge
there. The announcement is creating
great enthusiasm in the Boundary and
Coast districts.

IN SHERIDAN CAMP.
Work on Various Properties Meeting
With Success.
Resumption nf wnrk in some of the
mines has again brought Sheridan
camp into noliee. Several months
since there was a genenil closing down
and with a single exception the close
dnwn wns tight. I). M. Snyder, the
man whu made the cninp what il is,
was in Kcpublic last week and gave
the following Information :
"I have lmd a force nf nien working
for a iiiiiiilici nf days nn the Kittie
Clyde ami Hebeknh claims, They are
part nf the holdings of the conipany
that own the 'An I la ,\l. The object of
working these claims now is to have
them in shape to he shippers hy next
spring as liy that time we expect an
outlet for our ores through one nf the
railroads that are being constructed
between Gland Forks and Republic.
We know that we have a great mine
in the Zalla i\l. and ns the Kiltie Clyde
and Rebekah are on (he same ledge we
are confident that when fairly well
opened, we can show that ihey loo aie
mines of far more than ordinary richness.
The Kittie Clyde hns been opened
to a small extent in ninny places
throughout its entire length. It shows
a well defined ledge with good walls at
all points, and there appears to be a
pretty Uniform grade of ore. I am
sinking a shaft on the property near
the south, m boundary line. It has
reached a depth of 60 feet. It was
begun before lhe clnsi.- down, and presented such an inviting appearance (list
I decided to continue it. Thc depth to
which it will lie extended is n matter
that I have not yet fully decided, but
il will be continued fora considerable
distance, and I lion the ledge will he
drifted upon, and thu ore sloped out.
The nre thai i.s coining out of the shaft
is meeting my expect at ions, The walls
are smooth and hard and go down at
an angle that will render the extinction of ore easy and cheap.
"The Rebekah joins the Kittie Clyde
on Ihe north anil is hut a short dis*
til ii ce som li nf the Zalla M. The ore is
similar to that on (he Kittie Clyde hut
lhe vein has not heen exposed to the
same extent. I have a shafl on the
claim that is aboui 50 feel in depth. I
have encountered some gond looking
ore, but as I have not yet crosscut the
ledge its widlh is a mailer of specul. -
tion. HotteV'f, as the ledges in the
camp vary in widlh froni three to
seven feet, it is reasonable to believe
that it will prove to be four or Hve feet,
in widlh. Work will be continued
until I have deteimilled iis value. If
it proves ro be as promising as now
seems probable, ii will be put in shape
lo priiiliice nre in shipping quantities
at the earliest possible date.
"No work will be done nn the Znllii
M. for some time unless the present
plans arc discarded, The mine is in
Hne shape to produce a large amount
of ore, bill the cosl of transporting it,
by wngnn to .Midway, the nearest
pnint of railroad communication, was
so great I Iml in justice to the stockholders it was decided some time since
to close down. When lhe coinpaiiy is
salistied lhat It call have the h'lielit of
the load* projected between Republic
amlUrand Forks it will at once resume,
The mine is opened in such shape that
nre can be broken on n week's notice.
It Is equipped wilh a three drill com*
pressoi plant, and opcilltl by shaft ami
tunnel lo u dept h of 300 leet.
"The I'liil Sheridan, which is iinde-
bond and lease to Jnmes Crniiiii, is
showing up in line shape. The shaft is
almost 100 feel in deplh. The ore body
is four feet iu width aud good foe
about $100 per toll, I did not go down
the shafl, but an examination of lbe
dump convinced mc that the claims
made for the pioperty nre not fill from
the leal fuels. The ledge has grown
stronger and mole uniform i l width
and value frnm the surface tn (he pits-
en( level. There is every reason to believe thai thu claim will turn into au
extensive mine under .Mr. Uronlll'a
management, He has already a big

On the head when it says : "We trust
thut when the Duke and Duchess of
Corn nail visit this country there wili
be no 'precedence' nonsense. We have
no slate church in Canada, and all
ciLiz-us are on an equality. In public
functions in this country all men are
equal; and we do not want any exhibit ions of snobbery in connection
with Ihe royal visit."
Elsewhere in this is-.ua we publish
ti.e provincial game laws, which
should he carefully pi i used by
all sportsmen. A numher of our
i-ilizeus are under lhe impression that
the open season for grouse commenced
on the 15th of this month, but such is
not the case, us the close season for all
game iu the province lasts till the 1st
of September, upon which dute some
birds and animals may he legally Ink
en. This mistake arises over thc fact
that in the stale of Washington the
open season for grouse does begin on
the 15th of August, but, those laboring
under the impression that a similar
law exists north uf the boundary line,
.and act accordingly, are apt to find
that knowledge, under cerlain condi
tions, is an expensive article.
Hon. Edgar Dewdney, accompanied

on this trip Ihey are the guests of the

mountain and if they do not get lost
and miss the old survey route that

they will have an exceptionally pleasant journey, as mis route was found

Reports obtained from Steveston aud

places, there is a great scan ity of cannery employees, and pries several
times as large as are being paid on
the Fraser are said to be the rule south
nf the boundary. The labor market is
iu such acondilion that unless Ihey
get Chinese from tbe Canadian
side, the canneries cannot operate
to their full capacity, so that
little objection if being put in the way
of the Orientals going over to Washington slate. A man just, relurned to
Ihe city states that iu Blaine, everyone
appeared to he glad lhat Ibey were
able to get help from the Orientals
from the Canadian side and lhat litlle
or no hindrance was put in the way of
the Orientals coming there, so far as
official action was concerned. Ou I h
Fraser river, there is no scarcity of
cannery help, although Ihe canneries
at this time of the year naturally do
not desire to lose their most expert
hands in (he packing of flsh. On the
other hand, from the standpoint of
labor during ail the seasons of the
year, the loss of Chinese from the
Canadian side will lie fell— nut vei y
keenly.—Vancouver Province,
And although our census returns for
the next ten years may not show such
an increase in population as we might
desire, we will endeavor to assuage
our grief by the thought lhat We are
rid of an undesirable class of people,
Will someone with the good of our
country at heart please stand on the
boundary line and make it a point to
men that none of them come back.
...» c»|jeuiru una iiiinisueu a iiieine
for considerable comment, and In some
section much disappointment has been
expressed. The opinion has been advanced by certain political organs thai,
the census ret urns of 1891 were tampered with by the Conservative government lo suit party purposes, and this
may or may not contain some truth.
The Spokesman - Review, a paper
which usually takes a broad view of
matters affecting the Dominion, and
di*play» little of the jingoism so common lo many American papers, speaks
as follows :
The latest census returns of the
Dominion of Canada show un inei ease
of only about (100,000 over I lie llgures
of 10 yean ago. The previous census
gave the Dominion a population of
4,823,875. It is claimed now by those
whn would account for the small increase during the decade that the re
turns of 1891 were padded. There has
heen evidence that the country Iihs
heen growing right along, and the fact
that the increase in the entire Doinin
ion has heen only a litlle over half a
million can be explained only on th
theory that the census of 10 years ago
was incorrect.'
Naturally, the Canadians are disappointed, hut the fact lhat the returns
of this year show hut a slight increase
over those of 10 years ago is no cansi
for sorrow if it is true that the census
of 1891 is an unreliable guide to go hy.
The people in all the cities and lowns
of the Doniinion ought to he alii" to
tell from prevailing conditions whether
or not there has been prosperity, and
iu tbis way decide at least to their own
satisfaction, if there has been au increase in population. It is probable
that there are few localities outside of
Quebec where there has not been a
decided inei ease.
It was not to he expected that Canada would show a growth anything like
that in the United States. Iu the lirst
place, there are no large cities in the
Dominion outside of Montreal, Toron
to, Quebec and Ottawa. There could
not be that large increase which has
heen so marked in many of the important centres of this couhlry. Moreover, the population is not swollen liy
(he immigration which has heen such
a factor iu building up parts of the
United States. In a single year lhe
arrivals in this country from foreign
lauds have been more than the entire
increase in the Dominion population
in a decade.
Canada is growing, however, and
ihe increase represents the liest kind
of citizens. Perhaps hoineseekers have
found greater attractions on this side
of the Hue, hut it is only a question of
time when agiieulture and manufacturing will draw people lo the land
north of us, and in some sections lhe
growth of population h ill probably be
as marked ns il has been in some of
the favored localities of the United
States,

THE REPUBLIC MILL.
manager Jacklln*- Denies the Report
That it Could Not Treat Republic Camp Ores.
0. V. Jackling, late man wr of the
Republic mill, declare* that thu cloning
down of tbe mill was dim solely to in*
ahility to «et enough nre fur running
thu plant.
"The Republic mine reached a point
where it was unable lo supply Ihe mill
With ore save on the most limited
se iie," said Mr. Jackling. "Managvrs
of other mines in the camp were indisposed to make contract for their product. As a result the mill bad to
close.
"The charge bas been made that tbe
mill wus nnt suited to the ore found in
the lower levels of the Republic. That,
is not true. The mill was completely
successful. From the lime that it
started up tn the close of operations,
we recovered Bl per cent of all the
gold in the ore submitted lo us. We
recovered 86 per cenl of all the rallies,
including silver. There seems tn he a
misapprehension with regard to an increase in the amount of silver with
depth. The silver values of the He-
public mine did not average 11.50 per
on, The greatest assay in silver ever
gotfrtJiiia -liipment of Republic ore
was Ave ounces, or less than $8.
"The mill was in operation somewhat less lhan nine months. In lhat
time we handled custom ore from the
Tom Thumb, tbe Ben Uur, the Quilp,
the 8an Pull, the Black Tail, the Pearl
and the Lone Pine-Surprise. The
average of those oiv.s was three and a
half ounces, or about 82 per ton in
silver. That was ahout 15 per cent of
the value ol tbe ore,
"Owing to inability to get ore, the
mill never had a chance tn work nt its
full capacity, which was 6100 Inns a
iiiuiitl). Consequently we never had a
chance to show what the mill would
do in the way of economical operation
under normal circumstances. How
ever, we got ore sufficient to run nn
three fifths capacity during April and
May. Then we were able to get treatment costs to within a few cents of the
estimates on a 200-ton per day basis,
Wiih a full tonnage the mill could
treat ore for a less price lhan was ex
petted.
"The mill Is a complete success, and
I am satisfied that when conditions
change in camp it will get a tonnage
up to its full capacity. The completion of the railway into Republic will
benefit the mill hy reducing costs of
operation. The mill will fully hold its
own in competition with the smelters.
"I have resigned the management of
the company since theie is nothing for
ine to do with an idle mill. My relations with both the Republic Mine
conipany and with the mill corporation
continue to be nf tbe most friendly
sort. Officials ot the company are
satisfied that the mill has done all that
could lie aoked of it."
