Are that destroyed tbe Fairview Hotel in the early hoar* of last Wedne*-,
day morning the following particulars
were obtained hy telephone from Oamp
McKinney through the courtesy nf
Henry Main, druggist, of that town
who hastened to Fairview on Wednesday morning lo tender assistance
there. He says that Frank French,
manager at Fairview for Shatford k
Co., general storekeepers, gives the
following version of what occurred so
far as lie remembers. He was sleeping on the second floor of the hotel,
and was awakened hetween two and
three o'clock by a sound like the cracking of Are, but thinking some one had
lighted a Are in the open fireplace in the
large puhlic oflice on the ground floor
of the hotel, did not take much notice
of the matter. Presently, though,
ihe sound appeared as if children were
playing downstairs, so he got up and
opened his bedrooVi door only to And
flames coming in. He shut the door,
put on part, of his clothing and
then rushed through the flames to
ihe door of the room occupied by
Miss Louise Hmith, the school teacher,
the flames not yel. having got that far
along tlie hall. He broke open the
door, dragged Mine Smith from tier
bed, and carried her along the hall
farther away (mm tbe flames. Bid
ding ber remain there whilst he returned to his own room to open or
break the window from which Ihey
would be ahle to jump safely to the
ground, he rushed luck through tlie
flames, broke the window down, and
then relnrned through the Are once
more for her. But she had meanwhile
disappeared, so he turned lo try and
get out alone. By this time tlie Hre
nearly Ailed the hall and he thinks a
gust of flame caught him and knocked
him down and he remaindered no mo re
until be found himself outside the
burning building lying on the ground,
but not- much burned,
Mr,  Main states  that   Phillip  H.
Matthias, the manager of the hotel,
although burned, got  outside after
having gone downstairs t» where he
found the place was on Are,  As by
this time the staircase was in flames
be clambered up tn his room from the
outside seeking his wife and child, but
they were not there,  Here the Are
caught him again and burned all his
clothing off his body.   He was rescued alive, but so badly  burned that
after   lingering   in   unconsciousness
ahout Ave hours death put  an  end
to  his sufferings.
Mrs. Maltlas jumped from the window of her room with her child. Her
back is injured but the child escaped
John Love, druggist, of Fairview,
was sleeping on the third floor. As
soon as he |found that the place was
burning he hurried to waken Lime
Hunt, the housekeeper, whose room
was on the same Aoor, He got her
from her room,* hut finding no other
means of escape/dropped her from the
window to the ground helow and then
jumped himself, but not until after
one of his hands had lieen so much
burned that he will likely lose part of
it, and his face had also been injured.
Fortunately he landed on soft earth
and so escaped other serious Injury,
but not so Ibe unfortunate Miss Hunt,
whose thigh bone was broken, back so
injured that her body was paralysed,
and a hlood vessel in the head broken.
This young woman is being nursed liy
Miss Flesher at the home of Oold Com

despaired of.
A man named Allen, employed as
a Areman in lhe boiler house at Ihe
Stemwinder mine will also likely die.
He Jumped from the top story and
broke his ankle bones and received
olher injuries that caused paralysis of
the lower limbs. Another man named
McKinley, also broke his ankle in

The Consumption Situation.
Unless one ha* made himself fatuilar
with the consumption situation in Canada, it is hardly possihle to appreciate
the greatness of the work lhat has
lieen undeitaken by the trustees of tbe
Free Hospital for Consumptives at
Graveoburst, A representative uf
this journal chatted the olher day
with Mr. J. 8. Ituherlsim, Secretary
of tbe: National Sanitarium Association, under whoie auspices this hospital has been mahliehed. We learned
that though the doors weie opened for
the admission of patients only in the
end of April last, there are now aixty
patients in residence, and tbe applications on the Secretary'* desk ore so
many tbat the trustee* have given inst ructions to have the accommodation
Immediately increased to Id) patients.
They have undertaken ibis additional
expense purely on faith, and io response to the pitiful calls that are coming to the office every day from applicants.    '
'•W.thin the pis', 21 hours." said
Mr. Robertson, " I have received ap
plications for admission from Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick. Quebec and
Manitoba, In each of these cases the
patients, if they are ahle lo pass the
medical examination, will be admitted
absolutely without a single cent being
paid for their maintenance, and will
be kept in lhe institution as long as
their condition makes it necessary.
A careful estimate of the requirements
of the institution, witb 100 patients
in residence, shows thai ut least $20-
000 will lie required to maintain this
number during the year,"
"But," the inquiry was, "is there no
endowment in connection with this
"Not a farthing," was the reply of
Secretary Robertaon, "The original
huilding was the grant of two well
known Toronto citizens. But outside
of this lhe institution has heon fur.
nished aud will require to la! maintained solely by the contributions of
the great mass of the Canadian people
The trustees have felt ihal the money
required will be furnished ; nevertheless, il is a heavy undeitakingforthein
and it will be a calamity, with the
death rate of consumpl inn throughout
the Dominion: reaching 8,000 a year,
for the doors to lie closed against applicants because of insufficiency of
funds. Just at the present time, with
the huilding extensions that are going
on and patients crowding in as the
winter approaches, the financial needs
are very urgent."
Contributions for tlie hospital. ,in
large or small amounts, may lie sent
to Sir Wm, R. Meridith K-„ Vice*
President of the National Sanitarium
Association, 4 Lamport avenue, Toronto ; W. J. Gage, Chairman of  the
Work on the hig building for the
200 Ion cyanide plant of the New Fair-
view Corporation, Ltd.; is progressing
rapidly. During the erection Superintendent Charles Ostenburg has a force
building the tanks, a* tbe company
has adequate facilities to manufacture
ils lumber, thus avoiding the execs
sire expense and freighl charge and
effecting a saving nf fully 50 per rent
in cost. Meanwhile there have been
stoied ready for treatment sufficient
tailings, the value of which, when they
are treated, will fully pay for the cost
of the new planl. From the results
of the present small experimental cy
aniding plant it has been demonstrated
that the whole of lhe tailings, after
leaving the tables where the high
grade sulphreta are extracted, can be
run direct into the tanks and treated
at a very small cost, which should in-
crease the profits on the Stemwinder
ore considerably. In fact, the management .has every reason to helieve
that the plant will establish a new record on ryaniding hy saving 88 per
cent nf the tailings.
Ai the mine the ore body at the 300
foot level is lieing further exploited by
a winze following the footwall side of
the vein, The policy of lhe management is to develop, a* tapidly as possihle, the ore resources of the different
levels, so hy tbe time eveiything is
ready to be put in operation at the
46 stamp mill and the cyanldiug plant
there will he an almndance of ore for
('rushing. Ther* are.now o»«r 800O
tons of broken ore in the stopes. At
present onediill I* more than sufficient
to keep 11 stamps running.
With regard tn .tie values it Is sat
iefscinry to note that the greater the
depth the higher the values, A two
weeks test, with 14 stamps, on ore
taken exclusively from the 300 foot
level, gave the following returns. One
hundred and sixty eight ounces bullion, $1030; 5 tons high grade suphret,
yalue per ton 6211, $1055 ; 60 tons low
grade concentrates, value |ier ton, $18
$9110 iflUO tons tailings, value per ton
$3.70 62220; total, $5805, giving a
value of $0.60 per ton, In addition to
these value*, ahout; 10 per cent was
lost hy heing carried off in the slimes,
hut thl* will he saved by the cyanide
plant. A second mn of ore from the
same level, of 846 tons, and 454 from
the second level, or a total of 1300 Ions
milled, resulted as follows; one htuid
red and thirty**eveti and one half
ounce* bullion, value $1557,87 ; 7 toius
sulphreta, value $146 per ton $t015;
00 Inns low grade sulphrets, value per
ion $15.85, $00500; 1100 tons tailings,
value per trim $2.80,$!1080; total $0010 87
showing an average value of $2 07 per
ton In addition, to slime loses, lu
comparison with the ores milled from
tbe dump, with values ranging from
$2 to $.! per ton, lieing ore extracted
from the two upper levels, the results
are most favorable. With.the use of
larger screen* there is no doubt, says
the management, that with the full
46 stamps running, from 160 lo 172tons
of ore per day will la! treated.
In discussing the cx|ierlnieiual tests
of the Stemwlnderore, Supi-rinlendciit
Charles Ostenburg said ; in our llr*t
mill test we found that, we eoiito not
by the use nf Frue vanners alone, make
■ncriitrates high enough in grade to
net 00 per cent of tbeir value, ae the
freight and I reatment. charges are excessive, Consequently, I constructed
tables whirh separate the slimes from
the sands and classify ibe concentrates
taking nil a streak Which roniiijns tbe
galena, currying a high pecci ntage of
silver and gnld. nml bringing the shipping product to a value of from $)5(i;i()
$01X1 per ton. The shipping ntnl treatment charges nre no more on this
grade of ore than on the lower values ;
in fact we also receive the I, ad values,
which on the lower grade were not
aliened, and now obtain (Xi per cent
of the gross value. The lead saving
alone pays for lhe treatment charges.
The second product which we run
over the Fine vauneis and saved in
the shape of low grade concentrates
was worth about $15 lo $25 per ton,
and was treated hy the small cyanide
plant with whicli we made an extraction of 75 to £5 per cent, with a perfect precipitation, We expected to
run a considerable portion of the sand
over wiih this mineral, and have but
a small loss in tailings. However we
found that when we treated ore from
the third level, especially, which was
of u higher grade, that fully a third of
our values was being lost, as even the
slimes contained values ranging from
$2 to $4 per inn.
After many tests the management
concluded thai nothing remained but
to erect large cyanide tanks, now in
process of construction, nnd treat the
whole product nf the mill, us *it,h our
present small plant we have demonstrated that Ihe whole of the tailings,
after leaving the tallies where the
high grade sulphrets are extracted can
Iw run direct into these tanks and
treated at a very low cost, with consequent handsome profits. I expect lhat
the large plant will be finished about
the flrst of next year, and meanwhile
only enuugh stamps are Mug operated
to crush the ore taken nut in development.
For some weeks pnst, the press of
British Colntiihia has been publishing
stories regarding the sale of the mine
and mill of the New Fairview corporation, limited, loan English syndicate.
President. Richard Russell to day staled lhat tne property was under consideration, pending an examination by
John Hays Hammond, the noted American engineer.
Should the deal eventually go
through the - company will receive
$800,000, making an average of 23
cents per shine. The consideration is
iionflnally stated as $000,000 in the

receive the price mentioned, the balance nf $100,000 being commissions etc.

A few days ago, a gentleman came
into this office aud asked for a map nf

It has separate divisions, for land,

we are painfully aware of-the hard

Is scarcely fair to the prospectors to
have their claims sampled and the
results published wilhnut their

in Aspen Grove camp, taken from the

21, (Special to   Thk  Disp\TTH,)-The
owneraofthe Nickel PlHte mine and
group of mineral claims are proceeding
with lhe construction  of  a tramway
and waler Hume preparatory to installing a OO stamp mill and concentrating
plant.    This  mine  and tlie   several
neighboring  mineral claims forming
the group are situate on Nickel   Plate
mountain, which lies towards the head
and on the east watershed nf Twenty
Mile Oreek, a tributary of the .siinilkauieen River.   The inountain reaches
an altitude of aboui 7,000 feet, and it
is well covered   with mineral   location*, but little Important  develop
ment work ha* lieen   done  outside of
ihal on the Nickel  Plate group, the
owner* of which are understood to lie

Marco* Only,   The Provincial Mineral
ogist, who   visited   the pioperty lasl
year, ihus refer* to it  in  the annual
report for 111)1 of tlie Mini-ter of Mn
of British  Columbia; "Nickel Plate
camp may be put down as a gold camp,
for all hough Minus  copper   is found,
the chief value he* in the gold, whicli
seem* tn be  associated   with arsenn-
pyrities, and does not appears to be
found lu any extent  witb the  iron
pyrites in lhe absence of arsenic.   The
rock formation of the mountain, from
a hasty examination,  ap|iear  to be
composed of very highly altered  sedi
mentaries, interspersed with planes ol
igneous rocks—audesites, etc.,   whicli
are so exposed a* to produce  I he appearance of being  bedded,   It would
ippear as though on thi* property the
ore liody consisted of a highly silicifled
hand ur bed, now so much altered
that its original character is obscured,
The ore-hearing body on which the
discovery waa originally   made outcrops on the face of the hill at an al
tilude of fl,30D   feet,  striking nearly
horixontally along  the  bilUide and
dipping into It at an angle of almut 17
degrees*   It has a total width of about
40 feet, overlaying a bed or sheet nf
apparently Igneous rock, the mineral-
ixation lieing strangest near such contact,   The mineralization, which, to a
certain     extent,     is     disseminated
throughout the ore-bearing   body,  is
much more pronounced along lines of
Assure in the hody,  and   naturally
varies in amount along such  lines, sn
much so as lo render sampling of the
mine very indefinite.  The  mineralization cousisis of iron pyrites with a
considerable   proportion   of   arseno-
pyrite, with  which latter  the bigli
assay value* obtained in thi* mine are
associated,     From selected   samples
assays of considerably over $100 per
Ion in gnld have  been obtained, but
ihe ore as mined will not mn nearly so
high, proliahly not much over $20, per
ion.  This propeity has been developed by tunnels entirely, the configuration of the hill rendering such the best
method, since, approximately, two feet
of tunnel gain one foot in depth.   For
the past Ihree  year* active develop
ment work has been carried on conlin
nously wiih a force of almut  20 men.
No oro has been shipped nor ha* any
been taken from the pro|ierty,   '-'
■uch as has been broken In process of
developnienl bus been stored  In  the
mine ready for shipment or treatment
when the prop"!' facilities are afforded.
Consequently  no authentic  data are
available as to just what   the ore as
mined will run, but, as before slated,
it is estimated iu lhc neighborhood of
$20. |ier ton.   A sample taken, representing roiighlv lhe assorted ore, gave
im assay d($MS0in gold,   1.08 oz. in
silver per ton and 2 per cent, copper,
while another sample   taken,  of the
lower grade ore, gave $8.80 in gold.

information has been obtained : The
Nickel I'late ore is an arsenical Iron,
carrying gold, but, singularly enough
there is fieegolddisseuiinated through
the very middle of the arsenical iron,
It is an extraordinary formation. A
number of milling men have examined
the ore, and, although a little puzzled,
they are none the less well pleased
with Ihe outlook. From 10 to 4(1 per
cent, of Ihe lotal values can, it is es
tiinated, be saved on the plates after
lhe ore is milled, The remainder of
the gold is held iu the arsenical nre.
It is easily concentrated, however, al
a ratio of 10 or 11 to one, and it will
mike a high grade product which call
be shipped to lhe smellers. The propeity wus bought aliout three years ago
by the Int* Marcus Duly on lhe advice
of Mr. Rodgers, who was then in his
employ as a mining engineer. About
$«),«»> was paid for it. Since hen
money spent in development and the
purchase of neighboring claims has
brought the expendilure up to about.
