"The Granhy Consolidated Company
will gn ahead Ht. once with I he building of its copper refinery. Wc are
getting the preliminary informal ion
ii8 fast nn possible, and il, is only i.
question of time hefore ground is
hroken," said Jay P. Graves, the vice
president and general manager of lhe
(Iranl.y ('.nnipany, who is just hack
from the east, lo a Spokesman Review
"The location of Ihe plant is still unsettled. Kecent developments have
left sil e uncei'.ain. Wherever il goes,
however, it will lie a plant employing
from 'At) bo 400 men. for we must have
a smelling plant in connection with il.
A refinery gels so many different
sorts of inalle that it must often run
the inatenal through a furnace in
older to Ht ii for refining.
"We were considering some months
ago io i mi.I a smelter on lhe Coast.
Init we were not able to get contracts
for sufficient ore to justify a plant.
Therefore we do not expect to com
inence work on a Coast smelter this
year. We were negotiating with lhe
Hrittauia people to treat iheir ore.
We made them two proposit ions. One
was for them to equip the mint' and
furnish ns the ore. The other was for
U* &> equip the mine and have them
furnish us the ore. They did nol
favoreiiher plan, however, fin ihey
are trying losell."
Does the relinquishment of the
plan to huild a smeller on the Coast
mean that you are not cnnsideiing Ihe
Coast an areHnery site?" Mr. Graves
was asked.
"Nol necessarily," he answered, "although that might l« a factor iu deter
mining Ihe site."
Unless some one else huilds a Canadian lead refinery we shall do so," he
continued, "However. I think It. settled
that the reHnery will he Iniilt at Nelson. B. C."
"Will the Canadian Pacific railway
huild it?"
"That is rumored, hul I am not in a
position to say."
"The Granhy Company is planning
to enlarge its smelling plant at Grand
Forks as soon as circumstances will
justify. With two furnaces we nre
handling 625 tons of ore a day. We
shall have two more furnaces and two
new converters in use hy Seplein'«r I
Then we can handle 12511 tons of ore
per day. Already we are able lo treat
$5 ore at a small prolit, and we hope
to la* able to treal still lower grade ore.
Of course our ahiliiy to mine, smelt
and refine this marvelously low grade
product is due lo our very complete
plant, and to the Hne fluxing qualities
of ihe ore itself. We are working all
the time lo reduce operating costs still
further. Nov. we are planning to put
in steam shovels to scoop the ore
fiom the open quarries into the cars.
That will do away wilh shovelers,"
"It is said that, some of the northwestern smellers are losing only .8
per cent of copper in their slag, which
equals a copper loss of only HI a Ion.
Is that a fair average for Boundary
ores?"   Mr. Graves was asked.
Yankee like, he answered with another question. "So they say lhat
the smelters are making a copper loss
of only ,8 per cent in slag?" he said,
"Are there any of them thai are really
keeping then slag loss under .11 per
rent? I do nol care lo say what our
exact loss is, for that i-. nobody's husiness but our own. I don't mind say
ing, however, that on many days our
slug loss is only ,2 per cent.

A Greenwood Sprinter Beaten at his
Own dame.
W. W, Smith, of Rossland. was de-
fealed in a 100 yard foot race on Columbia avenue yesterday hy Fred
Milchell, of Greenwood. Thc race
was to deqide a $1,00(1 bet, and Smith
deliberately fouled Mitchell in such a
manner lhat, Harry Jones, who had
Iwen requested to judge ihe event, had
no course qther than todeclare Mitchell
winner.   The loser won the $1,001) bet.
If the sto*y told of the race is correct,
and as the principals have left town
there is no means of securing Iheir
side of the tale, the affair was one of
the biggest "double crosses" ever
pulled off in Rossland.
Fred Mitt-hell is a well known Green
wood runner. At the Grand Forks
celebration he ran well, but was beaten
by Billy Smith of liossland. A few
days ago a local sport wrote Mitchell
stating Ibat a Rossland man who had
lecently made a turn netting him
several thousands in cash was prepared
to bet a couple of thousand that Mitchell could beat Smith if they came
together again. The writer suggested
that Mitchell come over here with a
wad, make a race and then let Smith
win, on which the parties would divide
the "sucker's'" money.
Milchell came oyer withacool thousand and another local man was put up
as the sucker. Mitchell's partner came
along and carried a wad. The race
was arranged after several day's delay and Mitchell's partner was on
hand to wager his thousand on Smith.
The "sucker" was also pre.ent, and
when he. offered to bet his money on
Mitchell, the latter's partner was ready
wilb the Smith wad.
When the men came nut to Ihe starting point, the situation was Ihis :
Milchell and his partner hud $1,000
wagered that Smith would win Ihe
event, thc understanding heing that
Mitchell would fall before Ihe lape
was reached and thus allow .Smith to
win hands down.
Smith's friends had $1,00(1 wagered
that Miichell would win and they
knew just ahout where Mitchell would
do his "accidental tumble" act.
Fully 1600 people witnessed the race,
hut not a cent was bit in Ihe crowd as
far as can he learned.
The men left the starting point near
thc Allan house together, Milchell
leading somewhat. Thirty yards
away from the scratch Smith closed
up on his opponent and about -Kl yards
from Ihe scratch he gave Mitchell a
shove in tile middle of the back that,
landed him ten feet off the course with
a badly scraped leg.
The foul was premeditated and could
not be overlooked. The only course
open tothe judge wan todeclare Mit
i hell Ihe winner on Soiit h's foul. This
left the Mitchell outfit in the hole as
far as the bet was concerned. They
had wagered their money that Smith
was going to win out, and the stakeholder paid over the coin to the local
■nan who was to have heen the

for some one to set Ihem lo work.
About 50 men came in from Spokane.
Six cars of "outfitting" came in on the

The hridge across the Columbia is
locaied just east of the postoflice, "on

bin's addition are being sought by people who contemplate locating there.

ly inopportune, coining ns it did immediately after the collapse of the B. A.
C. The enpittilizattnn of the new venture is relatively speaking small, while
nn ample amount has been set aside
fill' working expenses. The Snowshoe
is one of '.he most promising 'copper
mines in the most promising cump in
the Boundary district. Th" men enn
nected with its direction are nnt'mar
ket manipulators, hut reputable men
of affairs, most of whom nrenssociated

mil an n means of extract ing money

The cnndlti.ins all point lo the conclusion thnl ihe faith of the promoters in
the value nf the property is justified
and their confidence, thit the undertaking will he a profitable one is not
likely to he disappointed.

There are different stages uf alteration, of course, lietween the above-
mentioned limits, one piece of rock
not infrequently showing various degrees of inetiiiiinrpliihiii.
The microscopical determinations of
a number of specimens of this highly
altered limestone have revealed ihe
presence of the following minerals,
most of whicli are seen in each s|H*ci-
men ; quartz, plagioclase, enidole,
garnet, aiicite, magnesium aud calcium
ciii'lsinates, acl.iiuiollte, kaoline.pyrite,
chlorite and serpentine,
Into this muss of rock sheets of porphyry, varying in thickness, from four
or live feet lo 80 odd feet, have in-
traded, the intrusions having upper
einly followed more  or   less   closely
the bedding of the limestone. A microscopical examination of these sheets
of eruptive rock reveals the following
minerals: plagioclase, orthoclase, mle-
rocline, Inutile aijil a little quartz, and
thc decomposition of these minerals,
viz : chlorite, eartionates and kaoliuite j
Au analysis of two different, varieties
gives respectively, silico 82.69 percent,
and lime 2.117 per cent, and silica 53 21
per cent, and lime 5.52 per cent.; specific gravity aliout 207. It will he
noted that the porphyry is not mineralised at. al1.
Cutting through '.he ahove described
rock formations are several faultings
having a general northerly or southerly strike, with a slight dip to the east.
There does nol appear to have heen
any great vertical displacement, Inu
there are Indications ofa more or less
extensive lateral movement. It is in or
near this faulting that the ore is found
extending into the country rock in a
lense-shaped ui-iss so far as developed,
having nn extreme width of aliout tt'i
feel hy about 2G0 feet in length. This
extends from the surface of the ground
to a depth of nearly 800 feel, below
which it has not as yet heen followed.
As will he seen from the cross sec
lion herewith the ore lies in close contact with each porphyritic intrusion,
hotli above and helow it, the only effect
having been a possihle slight throw uf
the ore to the east. The ore itself is
chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and some py-
rite, with a small quantity of gold and
silver. On the edges of thr main ore
body hunches of specular iron and zinc
blende occasionally oc.ur, but never in
Ihe ore mass. The specific gravity of
the ore is 8.05 to 4.00. Garnet rock is
the inineial most intimately associated
with the ore, occurring around lhe
edges of the ore Imdy and occasionally
in musses in the midst of it. A noticeable feature is the entire absence of
oxidisation of Ihe ore hody, at the outcrop in elsewhere.
The main ore mass is made up of
inoienr less horizontal sheets of ore
varying from a few inches to several
feet in thickness, possibly maintaining
very much the form of the original
bedding of limestone, of which it is
probably a replacement. There is no
cementing of these layers, consequently great care has to lie exercised in
breaking the ore, for if too large an
excavation be made without careful
timbering nm. sheet will fall from the
nne above it hy Its own weight, li.
has been found necessary to timber
the slopes with square seta throughout, tliere being no other practicable
method of supporting the ground.
The sets are made of ten-inch square
limbers and are placed with Hve fool
centres.— Briiish Columbia Mining
