Our local fruit inspector is now
thoroughly convinced that there is no
telling by the appearance of a bundle
what it contains. A short time ago a
man wns seen coining from the depot
carrying something wrapped in a
gunny sack, which to a fruit inspector
resembled trees, and accordingly in his
official capacity proceeded to do a

eating the existence of any woolly

Another report is thai A and B. Companies have sailed for Southampton

The Canadian Pacific Kailway handled 34,000 tons of ore from the mines

what will the tonnage of the country

It is safe to say that the output of the

that tbe pyritie smelter is only two
miles and thiee quarters from Midway,
while it, is three miles and a half from

Pit Burns' Oood Luck.
The following is taken  from  tho
Nelson Miner.
"Some years ago when Patrick
Burns was just beginning to gain his
reputation as the 'cattle king of the
west' hu assisted a young Knglisli mining expert whu waa in financial nnd
other difficulties. The young man was
grateful and always made it a point to
keep in touch wiih Mr. Burns, in the
hope that some day he might lie able
to repay him for the favor shown. Hut
as time went on the Englishman
drifted toother parts, and for a few
years Mr. Burns heard nothing of him.
Less thnn a year ago, however, a letter
came frnm this mining engineer. He
had located in Mexico, and said he
had discovered some very rich copper
deposits. He had not tbe funds to
develop the property, and he was
anxious that Mr, Burns should take
hold of it, because, as he expressed it,
there were millions in it. Mr. Burns
had enough faith in his friend to send
a man down to look at the property.
This man came hack with a continuation nf the repot t of the Englishman.
Then Mr. Burns consulted with Mr.
Bruce White, of Nelson, and the conference resulted in Mr. While's departure for Mexico. When Mr, While left
Nelson he did not say where he was
going, and so far as the newspapers
were concerned, they never knew—
until now, Mr. White went directly
to the property aud examined it.
Everyone who knows Bruce White
knows bim to he one of the most con
servative mining men in British Columbia, and when he came hack and
told his associate, Mi. Boms, that the
property was a wonder, Mr. Burns was
sure the Englishman had nnt overestimated his find. When a man gets
hold of a good thing he usually likes
to see it for himself, and so Mr. Burns
decided to pay a visit to Mexico. He
did so, and has only recently returned.
He didn't go to confirm Mr. White's
tilted iU Ml . Bttl'IIB inn oik

securing the coin rolling Inlerest, li. is
said  to be  a  veritable mounlain of
copper and to he one of lhe hirgesl deposils of oopper on the conlinent, The
property is within a few miles of the
sea, which renders the transportation
of ore easy. Sleain wagons carry the
output of the mines to the water,
where it is loaded on steamers and
curried to the nearest, smelter. Already there are over 200 men at work
on tlie property, Il is reported that
Mr. Burns was ottered $2,000,000 for
bis interesl, but that he refused to sell.
Mr. Burns admits that a high figure
was offered him, Imt lie believes that
when the property lias lieen fully developed it will command a greatly increased price, should he then be inclined to sell.
It is understood that Mr. Bruce
While is interested with Mr. Burns in
the property, hulas Mr. White is out
of the city, confirmation of this report
could not be had.

The announcement of the proposed
establishment uf a Canadian mint has
not heen received wilh expressions of
l*rat ideal ion by bankers generally.
Tbey claim that it is an unnecessary
Innovation which will have no effect
on monetary condition*:' in Canada.
Tne question of Ihi effect may he left
in the hands ot experts in political
economy, in which peculiar science
they will lie aide to And arguments for
the proof of almost any view which
may lie taken. What interests the
miner more is the establishment of
assay nflices where he can have his
gold tested and stamped, its value
marked and settled, without unnecessary expense and delay, and without
iminstiii-,',  to  him   most important
natters, into the bands of unknown,
and perhaps unlrusted authorities.
Bankers argue that guld is only a pin-
duct, just as wheat or pork, and that
when sold out of the country value is
received, The fanner does not bave
to send his raw product tn Washington or London, or some other foreign
city tn Hnd a market, and the miner
claims as clear a right to aid in the
advantageous sale at home of his product, no matter where its ultimate
destination.—Toronto Telegram.

for the defence.
The causes that led up to the MTPsI
date hack aliout a month. Mr. (.'inn
tilings, it appears, owned a quarter
interest in the North Fork nf Kettle
River Improvement Oompany,   li i»
alleged thai after lie hul I xi niililli'il
hy tbe Provincial Government of (he
cancellation of the ftnnchlie, he showed
10. SpraKKti, lumber merchant, a tele-
grain purporting to have heen received
from 0.0, Young nf Boston mul in
which  Young offered   five  hiiinlr
I
dollara for (JillliinlugH quarter interesl
In the franchise, Mr. SpaggBtt, heing
unaware of I lie circilllillanoes ami lie
ing Interested as a sawmill owner on
the Kettle river, was Offered the qilitr
tor Intel ist fnr the snine fit-ore. He
Accepted the terms ahd in part pay-
llietil, itis alleged, assumed nil niili
Kation of Mr. Cumming* umounliiig tn
one hundred and I w em ynine dollars.
Hul.sei|iieiitly he learned til.it the
seller had heen so notified hy the Pro
vitieinl Government prior tn Sprag'
Rett's purchase. Acting upon the advice of lt, A. Diekaon, his counsel, Mr.
Spraggelt demanded and obtained
restitution. Mr. Spragnett, who had
been handed the alleged dieputch from
Young lo (lummiiiK*1, aiihmilted it tn
the local agent of the Spiikane North-
erli Company, who pronounced it a
foi|*eiy. Tlie telegram, it appears,
waa typewritten on a hiank form of
that company. Thu facts having lieen
liioughl to the Attorney-General's attention the present proceedings were
ordered to lie instil tiled.
To Enlarge (Iranby Smelter.
Montreal papers of a recent date
contain reporU of an interview with
J. P. Graves, general manager of the
MinerOravea ayndicnte. Mr. Graves
is reported to have said (hut the planl
will lie increased as nnnn its the nen
furnaces can Ih- Imiil, in order to provide a daily ripaciiy of IZit) tons.
Asked what was the value xxf Iho lowest grade ore which tlie smelter coulil
use, he replied t
We are mining nnd smelting at n
jmrtit all ore that linn a value ot SjlOa
ton and upward." He added that
shipments of matte have lieen made to
Kngland aa well aa to New York.
The smelter, which has a guaranteed
capacity of 5(1(1 tons daily, broke all
recorda on the 5ih Imu, when it treated 886 tons In 21 hours.
In ap-nking of the smelter the Grand
Foi ks Gatette says t—When the Oranhy Smeller waa Hrsl. rumored to he es-
tahlishedat Grund Forka there waa also
a rumor that a refinery would be put
in when lhe smeller was Imiil. Then
tha plant was local i-d hei o and it was
rumored still more strongly that we
were lu bave a refinery.
Finally the plant was in actual oper
atlon and Mr, Minei announced that
the refinery would certainly he limit.
That was only a month or so ago, and
he did  not   refer to  Ihe   refinery as
possible before 18 months at the earliest. Yet already the first move Is be
ing made forthe cHiiil.lishnieut of the
projected refinery planl.
lt is reported 00 good nnt hoi iiy thai
Mr. Graves on hia present trip to New
York will purchase the machinery fnr
a convenor plant to be put in at the
local smeller at once, aud that the pro
duct ot Ihe smelter will ho reduced to
metallic copper liefore being shipped
to the east.
Eastern transhipment will still be
necessary In order to bave the gold
and silver values extracted, bul hy
use of the converter the bulk of the
matte can he greatly ..diced and a
considerable saving effected, noi only
iii fieight charges but In tbe rettnery
charges as well.
This is the Hint step Itl the direction
of a refinery and would seem to indicate lhat. the smelter company is mor
than satisfied with the operation c
their plant and intend proceeding wit It
the projected Improvements al mice.
lf Ihey have found the insinuation
of a converter necessary before the
plant haa been operai Ing three mom lis,
It Is only natural to helieve thai  they
ill bo ready to take the final step and
put in a refinery liefore very many
months have rolled by.
