Mining Association of B. C
Goes After Candidates With   A
Long List of Questions.
Rossland, Aug. 26.—The executive of the Mining Association of British Columbia in session here to-day resolved to curry the war for reforms in connection with mining legislation,
iuto practical politics.
lt was moved by Messrs. Gait
and Howse that ull candidates
for election to the legislature in
the present election be interrogated as to whether they were
in favor of the objects aimed at
by the association nnd as to
whether they would support
the aims of the organization by
their votes and influence, if
elected. This was iu a general
sense, but the following were

Making Urge Improvements
Large improvements are going forward at the smelting
works of the B. C. Copper Co.
utGreewood. A large brick
chimney is in process of construction to take the place of
the metal stack now iu use.
A substantial foundation of
stone and cement 21 feet square
is being luid, on which a chimney 120 feet high is to be built.
The structure will gradually
diminish to the top, where it
will be 12 feet inside the diameter. About 220 thousand brick
will be used in construction.
After the uew chimney is completed connection will be made
with the lower part of the present one without much inconvenience or delay to the work
ed, but when they ure once
started again Mr. Plewmau
looks for their being kept up
uninterruptedly for u long time
to come.
Machinery For The Bodie.
W. G. Madison, superintendent of the Bodie Mining compuny, owning the Bodie mine in
Bodie camp, has arrived at the
property to superintend the installation of the new machinery
for the milling plant.
The machinery consist of a
ten stump amalgamation-cyanide mill, a sawmill and a power
plant for both. The sawmill
will have a capacity of 15,000
feet per day and the power
plant will furnish between 50
and 60 horso power. The machinery occupied three cars. Ib
is now being hauled from Curlew to the mine.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 21), HUB.
Estimating- "Ore in Sight."
The definition of what  constitutes ore in sight is receiving
considerable discussion among
engineers nnd mine operators.
The personal equation bus entered into its use rather more extensively  than is   compatible
with tho  doSniteness   that an
art that is ultimately to he  an
exact  science   should   possess.
Almost any ono who has a mining claim that it i is desired to
sell writes for the promotion of
the sale a   descriptive   paper
which by courtesy is referred to
as a mining report.   The use of
the term "ore in sight in these
literay documents   is free and
elastic.   Any rock   in  place   is
ore in sight iii  many of  these
compositions.   Others estimate
it as being any of  the mineral
deposits  exposed  liy   a   mine
opening, quite regardless of its
payable or nonpayable quality,
and quite regardless whether
of any ore body only one face-is
exposed, or three or four faces.
Perhaps the closest limitation of
the application of the term is
to ore bodies which in the workings of a mine are  exposed ou
not loss than three sides, which
only  include the mass of ore
which in pluce contains   the
pay mineral.    The first use of
the term is simply an evidence
of ignorance of the meaning of
the words by the user of them.
The second use is a cureless onei
The close limitation of the third
Use overlooks the practical circumstances of mining, and can
suggest misleading conclusions,
though it  is  fully  exact and
correct in some circumstances.
Broadened a little it will answer
very    well.    Ore    in     sight
should have a constant, unvarying meaning, and should with
out explanation always describe
the same definite thing.    It is
suggested that "ore  in sight"
should mean a body of rock in
place, exposed by mine workings on no less than three sides,
which, removable by the most
economical mining methods applicable, shall contain of estimable recoverable values at least
the  cost,  of   obtaining  them.
, This is .sufficiently elastic to include as ore in sight the waste
rock, not  containing payable
values,   which   in   the   most
economical mining is unavoidably taken out nnd treated with
the latter.   It does not include
such   barron rock where   the
economical mining methods sep
urates  it from  payable   rock,
bofore     it   receives    'metallurgical   treatment.    For example, a 1-inch wide streak of
pay   ore,   if   separable   from
the waste thut must  bo mined
cut to get it,   may  be   ore  in
sight.    The same streak that
cannot lie separated from the
waste  may not   be    ore    in
sight.—Mining&Scieutific Press.
the Department Th JflOO, aud
yho'ha8).beeu ijiiitnately connected with til} tlie efforts made
to iferease Cti!hadf«!j;trado with
that country. It uml scarcely
be atlded that Mr. Moore will
always be found ready to af-
brd enquirers any information
in his power regarding the
markets for Canadian agricultural products.
Fruit pulp.—During the past
few weeks considerable correspondence litis reached the
markets division from Orent
Britain, with especial reference
to fruit pulps, particularly rasp
berry. The fruit crop in the
united kingdom aud on the continent is very poor, and consequently there is a consdorable
demand for foreign, or rather
colonial, fruit pulp. The market
is now bare of supplies, and as
new Australian will not arrive
before March next, an excellent
opportunity is offered for Canadian cannors, if they have the
goods to fill orders. Unfortunately, it appears that the Canadian raspberry crop was also
short this season. The dinners
have, however, been placed in
possession of all theiiiforniurion
a'; Mr. Mooro's disposal, and considerable business has already
resulted. All the pulp avail
able will doubtless bo disposed
of at once at good prices.
Cider apples.—In view of the
short' fruit crop there is likely
to be a good demand in Britain
for boiling and cider-making
apples. The Department has
received advices from the Canadian High Commissioner in
London to the effect that one
firm would tuko 5,000 tons oi
each of the above sorts. Mr.
Moore is now in communication
with the leading fruit shippers
to ascertain whether tbey can
fill the order. The possibility of
shipping cider is also being in
vestigated. A trade of this sort
would afford facilities for selling tar advantage the*, immense
quantities ofcull apples whicli
uow goes to waste in this country.
tfp<MMtufifsfoi- South Africa,
Recent letters received, at the
Department indicate that ou account of the drought the grain
crops in the Transvaal will be
short this season, and that in
consequence there is likely to
be a good demand for Canadian
food products in the, sister
colony.

The Extension of Markets for
Agricultural Products.
For a number of years tha
Department nf Agriculture has
paid particular attention to the
development, of our export trade
in agricultural products. During the South African war the
Department undertook to fill
a number oL! very large orders
from the war office, and as
result hay, flour, 'oats, meats,
jam, etc., to the value of over
$8,009,000 were purchased in
Canada for the maintenance of
the army in the field. This
Work was carried on under the
direct supervision of Prof.
Robertson, Commissioner of
Agriculture and Dairying, but,
at the beginning of the present
yoaiy it was decided to create a
distinct extension of   market

Work on Hesperus Progressing
Favorably.
Work is progressing favorably on the Hesperus group, in
Wellington eamp, which is lieing operated by a company controlled by Chicago capitalists.
When work was commenced on
this property a couple of months
ngo, the ledge was opened up on
the surface by a series of open
cuts on the "glory hole" system
of mining practiced in the
Boundary. Since then a crosscut has been run to pick up the
ledge, and a drift run on the
vein for about fifty feet. It is
the intention to crosscut the
vein a little further in, and then
to decide as to the future plan
of development, a choice lying
between sinking and crosscut-
ting at a consiberably lower
depth.
The Hesperus vein averages
about eighteen feet in width,
and carries average values of
about $15. The ore is a self-
fluxing pyrrhotite product that
will command a low rate st the
smelters. The crew has been
confined to five men up to the
present time, but at an early
date the force is to be increosd
to ahout twenty. In the meantime while things are being got
in shape for handling more ore
at the smelter, the immense
stoiies at the company's mines
will be filled with ore us well as
the smelter and mine ore bin
capacity.
