TO TREAT ITS OWN ORES
Smelter Facilities Will be Provided-

The limp is fust approaching when
the Sunset Grown Silver properties in

Que.   The group adjtiins the Mother
Lode mine on the east.   A ennespiiii-
denl of The Advance was up at, the
Sunset last week, where he found some
40 miners employed underground and

help on  the  Btirface,    Since  Harry
Johns was appointed superintendent a

of work has lieen done in exploiting
the Sunset and Crown Silver claims.
At the present time, while un stopes
have been opened four sections of ore
hHve heen blocked out in the Sunset
iiiine, sufficient Mr. Johns says lo enahle liini at a week's notice to break
down and ship '.HI tuns per dny.   A
thiee compartment, 2.000 ton ore bin
is  hearing  coiiip'etinn   nnd   will   he
ready for  use  when   untiled,   Some
Ij'lite this month then, will he shipped
from the mtinufactnrv ill Sllerbiookes
Jeiuke's double cylinder, duui.le drum

at the shaft is deepened fiom liineto
time.
J. N. Greenshields. n director, antl A.
A. Monroe, secretary-treasurer of the
company, hoih of Mont real, are ex
peeled to visit the mine liefore Ihe enil
of the month. Now that the Sunset is
rearing Its shipping singe the tpieslinn
nf treating the ore has to be taken up
This is the principal mission lhat the
i wo officers have confronting them on
their arrival. It hns been street gos
-ip for some days lhat lhe Montreal &
Huston Copper conipnny nre afler Ihe
Standard Pyritie smelter on Boundary
creek. Neil her Harry Johns, superintendent bf tile mine, nor E. .1. Wilson,
manager of the smeller plant, will discuss for publication tliis feature. It
would not, however, surprise many if
such a deal were made. Tlie company
i.s Laekeri by men perfectly capable
tliiiiiiin'ly of purchasing outright ot
building their own reduction works If
that is found lo be necessary for the
most economical treatment uf tlie output of the mines.
The Sunset mill" is opened to a depth
of 400 feet by a double compartment
shaft. Kneh compartment is 1.1x5 in
the clear. The total number of feet of
win kings is 11,1)05 feet lo da'e. Devel-
npiiient is being carried forward on all
levels. At the 100 fnol level develop
ment has pi oven a shipping ore hody
—principally magnet Ite—800 feet in
length by 115 in width. Sufficient
work has nol yet been dune on I iie
south drift ou the 'JXI foot level to
prove the size of this ore body, but
i his is being carried on as rapidly as
possible. Along ihe northwest drift
uu the 200 an ore body was opened up
for f!7 feet. The om at this point is
more heavily charged witli pyrrhotite
nnd cari led more gold and less copper
thnn found elsewhere. Two or lliree
carloads, as a test shipment, weie sent
lu the Ti nl smelter, giving ret urns in
gold.of from $16 to $20 per ton.
In owlet to prove this body of high
grade sulphide at (.'ienter d pth the
drift on llie 300 foot level is being ex
tended towards it. Some 110 feel have
yet lo be driven to encounter il and
Superintendent Julius estimates that
iu about four weeks' lime this should
ho accomplished,
At the Crown Silver claim work underground for the time being hns been
abandoned. There is it Wl foot, shaft
wiih levels opened at 1,71 and 250 feet
limpet-lively. The total number of feet
lure is 850 and proved the exis'ence of
ri ltd In 115 font ore Imdy of fair values.
Ahoul, 850 feet south fiom tlie shnfl-
work is being prosecuted in an i udea
vi ir lo uncover the ledge hy surface
crosscuts. If this is successful a quarry
will he opened,
In connection with the idea nf open
ing a tpinri y—similar to Ibat in oper
atlon on the nther side of tbe hill by
the Molher Lode—the management of
the Montreal end is using pressure lo
get the Canadian Pacific railway to
give thc two mines additional railway
facilities. Facilities have already been
put in to handle Ihe ore from Ihe Sunset, New the company desire an additional spur lo lie built, starting from
Ihe opposite side of the gulch and lo
circle around, under the quarry workings on Ihe Crown Silver and contin
iting so as lo end immediately hehind
thc builif house. This spin in needed
not only for carrying away the Crown
Silver ore, but for bringing in coal,
mine timbers and supplies for the Sunset. Surveys have heen made with
this end in view.
For some weeks past a considerable
amount of surface work in the shape
of building has been accomplished. As
mentioned, a 2,1*00 ton ore bin is near-
ing completion, This hin has three
compartments for different grades of
nre. It is alongside and ahove the
railway spur, having a frontage of 50
feet six inches. From the foundation
to the top of the bin is 4(1 feet. The
structure is limit of 12x12 main timbers
and is substantial throughout. Con
netting the sifting floor of thc bin
with Ihe shaft platform is an 82 foot
tramway. Both bins and tramway
will lie roofed In.
The new boarding house recently
completed has heen opened for use,
with Mrs. MacKenzie as stewardess.
This huilding is frame. The main portion is two story, 50x80 ftet in size,
with a commodious kitchen annex.
The large dining room lakes up most
uf lite ground floor space. Upstairs are
seven rooms for Ihe officers and kitch-
o li■ I}>. Outside are meal, storage and
root houses.
Under n instruct ino is a new two
story bunk house 20x18 feet in size. It
will contain 17 bedrooms, sufficient lo
bouse 81 n ell. Architect John 0, liob-
rtson, who prepaied Ihe plans for the
ore bins and other buildings, and wbo
is personally supervising their erection,
expects to hnve the hunkhouse completed within the next two weeks.
The old btuik and hoard inir h**«s»
buildings have been completely remodeled, providing sleeping accommodation for 21 men, The assay and superintendent's oflice building is also being
overhauled, When all this outside
work is completed Ihe employees of
the Sunset and Crown Silver mines
will have as comfortable quarters as
nny mine in the Hound try. All tbe
structures are lilted with electric lights
nnd tbe hunk and hoarding houses
have hot and cold In i hs,
LOOMIS CITIZENS
Are Indignant and Send Out Statement Regarding Hagerty.
At a mass meeting of the citizens of
Loomis and vicinity, held on the evening of November 8, the following slate
ment, prepared hy a committee appointed at a previous meeting, was
adopted hy a unanimous vote t
We, the citizens of Loomis, Okatto
gan county, Washington, in mass
meeting assembled, 111 answer to the
malicious and untruthful statements
recently uttered by one J. M. Hagerty
through the columns of the Spokesman Review and endorsed by said paper, concerning the mining industries
f Ihis district and the aclion of the
citizens nf this community in tarring
and feathering said Hagerty, in the
exercise of Hint freedom of speech
vouchsafed to them as citizens of tills
country', hereby express Iheir sentiments fully anil clearly regarding
these mutters, in addition lo the statements and resolutions heretofore published :
We denounce in unmeasured terms
as untruthful and misleading the
statements of Hagerty concerning
ihe industrial interests of Okanagan
county, and particularly the property
of the l'jilniet Mountain Tunnel company and the Washington Development Syndicate, its promoters and
managers and ils proposed plan of
operations,
Having access to all the published
statements and reports of the Palmer
.Mountain Tunnel company and the
proposed plan of Ihe Washington
Development Syndicate, involving the
consolidation ofa large number of very
valuable properties in this vicinity, including the entire property of the Palmer Mountain Tunnel company, we
Hnd after an exhaustive and critical
examination that Haggerty's state-
inents in every respect are not in ac.
cordanre with the fuels as known hero
nr as stated in the public reports or
private records of the conipany ; and
while no community mote deeply deplores an unlawful act or more readily
brings lo punishment tin offender,
which was duly attended to in this
case, we feci ns a community outraged
hy the dastardly attempt at publishing
Ihis misinformation when nil reliable
data concerning the same could hnve
been hnd for the asking, nnd in view
of the fact, that we regard the perpetrator thereof as wholly irresponsible
financially and incompetent as a mining man, having no knowledge of the
questions involved either practically
or theoretically, all avenues of legal
redress Iherehy ineffective, nnd the
outrage he commit ted by attempting
tti injure a whole community in order
that he may satisfy a personal grievance, we feel thai Hagerty received n
well deserved and justly merited rebuke at the hands of Ihnse he sought
lo injure nml that it was not committed hy a mob of hoodlums but by the
justly indignant and hiulily incensed
members of an outraged community.
It is a matter of profound wonder
and astonishment t.i the people nf this
community, naturally tributary commercially lo Spokane, that a newspaper of the supposed standing nf lbe
8pokesnian-Heview would readily accept, publish aud champion statements
Which upon their fare bear evidence of
emanating from personal and sinister
motives and calculated to injure vital
business interests in a field where it is
extensively patronized ; and the challenge of Mr. Hagerty to have the Palmer .Mountain Tunnel expected by
said newspaper for tlie purpose of gratifying personal venom is not only
trifling nnd silly hut absurd, ns exhaustive reports hy mining engineers nf
well known ability upon tlie properly
have re|ieaiedly lieen made and show
such conclusive merit as to render the
assistance of the Htigerty-Review combination entirely superfluous, and we
think the course of said newspaper in
this affair—one so depreciatory of the
enterprises of one of the richest sec-
lions of the state—renders it unworthy
the confidence and support uf any self-
respecting community,

Ontario Cattle for B. C.
An Ottawa press despatch of 'a recent dale snys that G. H. Hadwin, of
Duncans, B.C., secretary of the Dairymen and Live Stock association, of
British Columbia, is in the city, In connection with a large purchase of
young cal tie in Ontario for the Const
province.
Thro.uii the Dominion live stock
commissions, lie lias placed an ordtr
for eight or nine carloads of minimis.
These are "stockers," that is thin
yearling animals. They will he taken
to the ranches of British Coliimliiaand
there fattened, The ranchers of tile
Teriitoiies have been securing "Blockers" in Ontario, but this is the Hist
purchase for British Columbia in this
connection. This year Briiish Colunihia lias abundance of hay, and, moreover, animals can feed on grass all
winter, there being only a few inches
of snow. The province has a shortage
of "stockers," hence the step to get animals in the east, A "stocker" purchased now will be sold for beef in
eighteen months. If the experiment
proves successful a large trade in
'Stockers" will likely follow. Thia
trade is altogether distinct fiom the
trade in thoroughbreds, This year
British Coliiniliia took almut $15,000
worth of thoroughbred stoik from
Ontario lor breeding purposes. Tho
animals have proved satisfactory and
the Pacific province will probably take
as much or more next year. The meat
from "stmkers" is sold in thu local
Dawson market. Meal still sells at
about 50 cents per pound iu Dawson.

MONDAY. NOVEMBER 25. I8U1
To successfully edit a paper io Nel
son a man musl bu both mentally
and physically capable nf protecting himself."* Occasionally an editor
hicks the hitler quality ns well as the
former iiiid the result is disastrous.
The way of tlie transgressor is hard.
The "Montreal  Witness" wants to
know why Canada is not sdndin'g another regiment   of soldiers  to help
fight the battle of the strong againsl
the weak in  that hot-bed  of  hellish
contest, the British colonies in Smith
Africa.   ('lunula, it says,   has already
sent snine 4,000 men, but by reason of
their being one yenr enlistment men
thoy have nearly all returned, and today the principnl colony of the so
called glorious empire is entirely without representation nf a tialiniinl Or pa-
triutic character ill that country. Australia  ntnl     New  Zealand    uu     the
other hand,   hive still   a large force
of colonials at    the  seat   of warfare,
and   iheir  men  aril    still     proving}
to  the eyes and minds ot   skeptical
and competing nations  thnt  blood is,
after nil, thicker than water and that
the lie of colony to homo bind is much
more than a mere uijittei of sentiment.
"Why," asks the Witness, "is not the
tocsin ringing calling tn arms the mnn-
ly sons of Camilla to help end tin  iniquitous  war ?"   and  for reply   echo
nnswi'is why.   Without wishing to be
prestiiuplnous might we be allowed  to
tell oui'ideas of why  tbe  tocsin does
not ring.   In the Hrsl  place the  contention nf nur Montreal contemporary
Is entirely wrong  when   it snys that
Oartttda is  Without representation  in
that part of the world, for if so then
wh.it hns become of Hint grand hody
of men li d formerly  by  Git Howard
and called thu regiment of Canadian
scouts, and what, ton of the 1,500 men
we sent out early tliis year as  pnrt of
the Baden-Powell police force; if they
tiro not Canadians and representative:
ol the back I id 1 it*  and  sinew of oui
country's suns, then  our comprehension nf Ilie situation  must lie a very
much mistaken one, nnd one that had
heller he changed before further time
goes by.   And ill the second place the
idea of comparing Australia and New
Zealand to Canada is somewhat  pre*
]i isterous on the very face of if.   Canada in grimier p.irt  is, or  rather   has
linen, n country of an hostile  or   alien
race.   The Knglisli to-day  nre  in the
Dominion through  the  might of the
sworn, nui iii.-lc possession I- .Uu  out,
come of superior strategy and generalship rather than the spontaneous sub.
mission uf a race lhat, no mill ter how
much  Ihey iiiny    to-day   appreciate
the benelit of Ilritish tide, nre si ill and
always will remain an alien nice.   Australia again is nut a conquered nation.
There litis been no contest of Ihe skill
of a'Mini teal th  and  n   Wolfe fur the
right of possession and even   the  race
problem, of the subjection   of   the
red   uinn,   that  hns been the cnttse in
Canada  nf so much  oppression   and
bloodshed, is one that is almost unknown in the colonies of the  Pucifle,
Our comrades there  are   without exception suns of  the anil  of England,
born in Australia perhaps, yet of British parentage, ihus it certainly is right
that we shnuld expect a more marked
ft e.ing of homeland devotion and loyalty from these colonies lhan  we can
ever see nr expect tu see  in   our own
Dominion.   And yet, another reason
why the Witness is wrong in coinpar
ing Australian action to Canadian- in
.,111 .uiii,,   ubw,.j,(«W[i.i.w..'   ,v"    "I
plication to Australia as it wrongly is
to day to Canada.   So far as lhe boys
themselves are concerned none of these
points might have very much weight
with Ihem, but with them  there is a
much deeper and perhaps a more snr
did reason thnn any  we  have quoted
wny Canada does  not  send  another
contingent,    Is it not 11   fact  lhat
while in Africa more lhan a fair share
of hard labor and  marching devolved
upon our boys, nnd many a time less
than a fair share of rations and clutli*
ing was doled out  to  Ihem.   Our returned warriors do   not soon forget
these tilings, nor do  they forget the
hardships endured Ihiough the incompetence of otticeis, Colonel  Otter and
others, nor can they if they wanted lo
forget tbe fact that to many of them
the Imperial gratuity promised, sn far
has failed to reach their  pockets, mid
in many instances their arrears of pay
have in some mysterious  way passed
the pockets waiting for theirrecetpt.
The hoys too can't forget the medal
trouble,  nor thu    nlHeeis   the   cold
shouldering dealt out to lliem  hy the j
powers that be, who, seemingly afraid
that the officer from  active   service
would ask too much, promptly put the
power of asking in some cases fnr beyond their reach al, all.   When the
time comes for tlie return of Ausi tali
aus lo their homes without appreciab
le exception they   will, and  for the
same reason that holds good in Canada
the Government of the Common wealth
will he without  representation   .villi
the Imperial army.   No matter how
much the Governnient at Ottawa may
he willing  to send    men,   and even
granting tbat they  have already offered a contingent, the almost Impossible nature of the task set. the recruiting officers will lie enough 10 act as a
deterrent to the Ministry of Militia.
Newspapers and officials can prate to
their heart's content ahout the success
of the labor of raising the police force.
That force was not a success, lhc clnss
of men asked for were not forthcoming
and the recruiting  officers on many
occasions had  to lower the stnudnrd
of elHciency to a very  low  point before they could get the number wanted.
We don't advocate a shirking of col
onial responsibility, for so long as Canada is an integral part of Ihe Briiish
Empire just so long should it uct in
unison and assist iu hearing the bur
dens of the mother-land, and if ns it. at
present is Ihe ctuse, that the land lias
got herself into a tight corner, help
should enme to relieve it but. thnt only
when the question of expediency and
jiistillcntion has been settled satisfactorily, and when it can be proved Ihut
tbe younger, in benefitting the older
ifluinMin la -loino. nothing injurious to
herself. The question theu is for ns to
answer what is to our best advantage
Does the sentiment compelling the offer of power mean more . than thai
compelling a country's development,
and in the answer lies the best reason
why today I here is no fourth contingent sent.
Ottiiiula is young in years and in ex
perience, and for its proper development it needs till the muscular as well
as brain power lhat can be given to it,
and apart from unwillingness to go .lie
cause of past treatment there is the
greater reason that can be given.
Canada today can neither spare its
sons or ils money. The one is necessary for ite growth hs a nation of
giants, the other for ils development
along the lines of peace and commercial progression.
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kooten-
ay 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.

Tht (ireat North Country.
On the train from the west Thursday
nfiertionn, snys the Winnipeg Ooili*
mercial of a recent tlnte was, C. C.
Falrohield, who hns all summer heen
in charge of a Dominion governiuenl
survey from Hiliiiontnn through the
Peace river country, Mr. Fairchlld is
returning to Ottawa, where he will
present his report, on the summer's
wurk. He was oliliged to leave the
district sooner than intended owing lo
a painful accident which he sustained
in having his shin hone splintered hy
nn axe. He was then .ihont 4-20 miles
northwest of Edmonton and was compelled lo travel to the nearest N. W,
M. P. post at Lesser Slave lake hefore
he could get medical attendance. Mi.
Kail -child gave an interesting, account
of his work in the Peace river country
to a reporter, who met him at Ihe
station,
••The country throughout which I
travelled," said Mr. Fail-child, "while
prohahly not heing, as has often been
claimed, a veritable garden, has a
truly wonderful climate with rich ng-
ricniliiral resources. The climate even
at the far northern point which I
reached,—It took ine two months to
get theie,—never gets as cold as the
winters do here. Tlie rich limher lying to the no: Ih of the Peace river
antl the magnificent expanse of the
Orand Prairie counlry to the south
will niak.j it some day one of the richest, districts in Canada. I left Edmonton on June 1 last and travelling hy
watet and pack horse traversed with
a party of twelve men lhe Peace river,
lhe Spirit river, Smoky river and the
Wappeta districts. Travelling as I
did in the wet season of the yoar up
stream it was not until late in July
thai I got over the ground to he covered.   I left there Oct. 7,"
Mr. Fail-child stated that they had a
inoRt excellent fall and when he left
there was no sign of cold weather, In
the Peace river district ahout twenty
families have locaied who are all doing
well and raising good crons. The Indians in the district have lots of game
this fall, moose and bear heing very
plentiful,
Tlie government has spent about
$5,000 throughout the Peace river
country this year improving the portages and roads, and egress and access
out and into the district is now much
improved. The engineering tlifllnilt-
les to be met with through Ihis district Bhnuld n railway company wish
to open it up would be very easily
overcome.
Word from Bolster says lhat some
of the richest galena yet struck in the
Myers Cieek camp has lieen ■ found on
lln* Delale, on which the shaft is down
00 feel,
At a nieeling of the (Ireenwood city
council last Monday night it was decided to pay the $1,000 verdict secured
by Waterman against the city for
damages aod close up this unfortunate
suit,
Teams are now hauling ore from the
Ruby mine, near Boundary Falls, to
tlie railway siding hetween that place
and Anaeondo, The ore is heing treated at the B. O. Copper Company's
smelter.
It is reported that a new hody of gold
quartz ore has been struck in Ihe Jew
el mine of the Long Like Company,
believed to ho on the lend that tin'
prospecting shaft has been sinking on
for some time post, Owpig to Ihe rap
id raise in the hill the lead where now
encountered will give about 500 feet
hacks. This greatly enhances the value of tho Jewel mine, which already
had a large quantity of ore, averaging
in value aim ill $12, blocked out in the
old workings.
