On the Morrison Pending the Taking
Up of the Option on the nine.
Ous Peterson, superintendent of the
Morrison mine, located in Deadwood
camp, is in the city for a few days,
says the Spokesman, and stated yester
day that the Boundary country was
never iu a more prosperous condition
than at the present time.
The Morrison mine has closed down
for a short lime, (lending the taking
up of lhe option on the property. The
mine itself is looking well,   The dia
uioiiil drills have 1 tin into some line
looking ore bodies, but their extent is
as yet. unknown. Mr. Peterson said
of the property:
'The Morrison mine hns immense
ore bodies. The ledges are from fill In
Sl) feet wide in places, and Ihere is any
amount of ore. The average values of
the ores will lie about $5 or $0 to the
Ion, mostly in copper and gold. We
have la-en working on the 300 foot
level and have over 3,1X10 feet of development work done on'lie mine. As
soon as lhe railroads reach Ihe camp
we can ship 100 tons of ore per day,
"It is rumored that either lhe Ureal
Norlhern or the Canadian Pacitlc will
run into the WestVork district next
slimmer, and it is also stated thnt Ihe
('amidinn Pacific lias made a proposition to the government to that effect.
"One thing thnt has made the camp
advance Ihis reason is the great in
crease in tonnage. The Graves com
pany has increased the tonnage of thai
group three or four fold, while the
British Columbia Copper company has
doubled its production. The Mother
Lode, the Ironsides and the Sunset
.people are actually quarrying out the
nre and are mining it at a cost of almut.
50 cents per ton. The Sunset people
have been opening up stopes and aie
ready to supply the smeller with any

Victoria, March 6.—The house is
holding a night silling tonight, presumably at the instance of lhe governiuenl to prevent the opposition members from attending E. V. Bodwell's
uieeting. Hon. R. McBride has a
motion before ihe house asking the
mivcrninent tn table forthwith alt
telegrams and other data hearing on
the alleged contract wilh Mackenzie k
Mann, and Ihit will probably reach a
vote as the government refuses to disclose the documents. Earlier in the
daya motion was made hy McBride
asking lhe government 10 issue a writ
forthwith for the vacancy in North
Victoria was defeated by a straight
party, vote of 10 to 16.
At tonight's session the opposition
continued ils demands for telegrams
hearing on lhe Canada Northern contract. R. G. Tatlow asked if Greenshields, who is pushing the scheme,
was ihe same man who was described
hy Col. Prior as making hundreds of
thousands of dollars out of one of the
most disgraceful railway deals in the
history of Canada, naming the Drum-
nioiid county deal, Tatlow tollowid
this up with a charge against the
premier that he had a side agreement
wilh Mackenzie k Mann wheHiy lie
sold his Coiuox and Cape Scotl charter.
This ihe premier failed to deny. Mr.
Dunsmuir finally moved lhat tin* house
adjourn unt II Tuesday, and 1 his elicited
a storm of protest from Ilie opposition,
whn charge the government wilh inability lo meet the contention of lhe
opposition and wilh adjourning lo
avoid an exposure of the governnient.
The government carried its point,
however, .md the house adjourned, all
the opposition ineiiiliers going to the
theatre, wliere Bodwell was holding
one of the biggest meetings in thc history nf the city. Here thc government's course was used wiih great
effect by the speakers and the general
feeling now is that Col. Prior's defeat
is certain, and the government's fale
is involved in that of Prior.

An association for lhe protection of

The trouble ahout the seat of the
leader of the Opposition arose in Ihis
.way. The Government in the first
instance refused lo decide who should
have ihe particular seat, which by cus?
torn and long usage has always been
accorded to Ihe leader of the Opposi*
lion. Some lime before the session on
Monday began Mr. McBride's desk was
placed in the position usually occupied
by the leader of the Opposition. When
he came in he found it so, nnd took
the seat. Mr. Martin came along aud
objected, but in place of referring I he
matter to the House to decide, remained standing a little dislance hark of
the seat. When prayer!, began and
the members stood up Mr. Martin
came forwaid, seized Mr. McBride's
chair, pulled it back and stood in front
of it. Immediately upon Ihe conclusion of prayers, and not before, I pushed my chair forward for Mr, McBride
to occupy—an acl of courtesy which I
had a right to do. Thereupon Mr.
Martin threw himself against my chair
and against me, endeavoring to puafr
the chair and myself hack, whereupon
I resisted and started lo push Mr.
Martin and his chair over, when a
number of'the other members' look
part in a general scramble over the;
possession of the chkir.1 There Were
two acts of aggression nn Mr. Martin's
part liefore I Interfered with him ;
first, in his seizing and. pulling away
Mr. McBride's chair ; and secondly, in
his thrusting himself wiih great fone
against my chair and myself. In addition to tny undoubted right, to resist
force witb force, it had heen made
quite apparent that the Government
was utterly helpless, as it luu) not
dared to decide the matter at the proper lime; and it was therefore a case
of every man heing a law unto himself
and protecting his rights as hest he
could. There was no al tempt made by
any member to hit or injure any olher
member. So far as I know there was
no real anger sho\vn hy any one—on
my part there -vas none, but I was
fully determined not to allow bulldozing to prevail, as it would likely lead
to other ful ure attempts of it from the
same source.

The association will also ask thn Attorney-General to Introduce a bill to
amend the provincial game act Chang
Ing it so as to bring these fish named
under tlie act and to add a clause to
prohibit the sale or exposure for sale
of trout at any time, and to provide a
penalty fnr the offences.  The assocla
tion is called the Kootenay Fish and
Game Protective Association, and ils
Intention is procure the organisation
nf similar associations at other points
in l he district.   Nelson is deserving of
greal. credit for taking Ihe ini'iative in
endeavoring to have the present laws
pertaining to game amended so as lo
prevent   the   streams   which    no*
abound with trout and nther kinds of
fish being lishad nut, and the association should receive every assistance to
carry out its good work from the pro
vincial and Doniinion governments, as
well as other associations heing formed
to work in conjunction wilh it.   We
have evidence nf the necessity of such
legislation as proposed by the association here in-the Boundary country,
where trout are caught nt any time of
the year that those who enjoy angling
find it convenient to catch them.   Not.
only would this evil he remedied hy
the proposed legislation, but the offering of trout for sale would also lie prevented, and this would, perhaps, lie of
more real benefit in protecting the fish
than the observance of a close season,
for during the months not included in
Ihis portion of the year, Imt comiiara
lively few llsli  are caught,  and  although these lew are caught at an unfavorable time, yet the greatest draw-
lia-k lo increasing the number of fish
in the streams in this portion of the
piovince is Ilie large number of able
bodied  men  who devote Ihe whole
summer season tn  catching lish and
offering  them  for  sale,    There are
many men who make a regular bus!
ness of tliis sort of thing ; they have
certain  places  lo supply  with their
catch, and by this means gain a livelihood. But if ihe required amendments
he made lo Ihe present laws as  requested   by  the. association, and the
laws strictly enforced, the si reams of
British Oolumhla will continue lo teem
with I rout, where ru the other hand,
if no sleps were taken tn change the
present regulations, in a very short
time there would  lie a noticeable reduction in the large stmii of fish for
which the streams of ihis province are
fn moils.

contracted to supply the (irand Forks

known as Howe's shaft.
The death is announced of J. H
Illume, photographer, wbo was well
known in Ihe Boundary country, having for a numher of years visited the
different towns, where lie would tak
photographic views, and his familiar
face will lie greatly missed. Speaking
of his death the (irand Forks Gazette
"J. II. Illouie, the photographer, died at the residence of M. H.
Burns,' in the North Addition, on
Monday alteitiiHin, death lieing caused
hy a complication of diseases. The
deceased was 47 years ol age and was
well known here, having been iu the
photograph business here for the past
three or four years, He was well liked
and respected liy l hose who made his
acquaintance, and his demise will lie
deeply regretted. Mr. Illouie came
hetc from California, hut nothing i*
known as to his antecedents, Shortly
More he died he was asked if he had
any word to leave for his relatives aud
replied th.it he had not a relative in
the world lhat he knew of. He mad-
a will More he died, leaving his real
estate and olher property to friends.
Work was commenced last Monday
nn the new piece of road lieing built
lietween here and Ingrim's to avoid
the steep grades of the old wagon
road. This is a much needed improve
ment, and when completed will admit
of much heavier loads being buuled
than could formerly he brought over
the old road. It is generally the cast-
when any work is done on the roads
in this district the men employed to do
the work are brought from elsewhere,
and the present work Is no exception,
for all the men employed to build this
piece of road wete brought here by
road foreman Finley, with the exception of thiee, who arc from Midway.
There is no excuse for importing labor
io carry on any governnient. work
around Midway, as there are plenty of
good wen In tho lown who aro only
too anxious to receive employment,
hut when they asked Mr. Finley for
work were informed that he had all
the men he required. The government
should not put nien in charge of work
who employ men outside of the district where tho work is lieing done. Of
course there may be au excuse for
giving employment to a few outsiders
who may Iw thoroughly familiar with
road and bridge construction and can
render more efficient service than
those unacquainted wilh such work.
hutto have the majority of lbe laborers brought from other places, it W

The Metallurgy of Hold.
The. tiii-lnlliirgy of gold wiih not. regarded as n very complex ni-t 25 yenrs
ag i, nor win it very generally considered thai there wort many possibilities
of improvement and changes in it.
Gold hearing ores at lhat lime were
olnssifled ns heing eil her ores the gold
iu wliieh was principally recovei-uhle
by amalgamation, or ores the gold in
which would nut amalgamate. The
former made gond mines, the latter
made very bail mines. Thai was about
nil there wis to it. When the ore in a
mine changed in character to that the
gold was no longer ainnlgaiiialahle the
mine was no longer any account. The
really goml miner of iliose simple mining days was the one who knew enough
lo quit a mine after Ihe ore turned
bane, before lie put back into the mine,
iu the effort lo amalgamate gold that
would not amnlgaiiiate, the profit that
he had gained from ores the gold of
which did amalgamate.
The chlorination process and a trifling amount of smelling were the only
openings onto ollu-r lines of ore. treatment, and they were quite limited in
application. Smelting was associated
wilh costly and complex manipulation
and wns really only suited lo silver
ores carrying a great deal of lead.
Chlorination had a limited application
to conceiitrulHS from certain ores
which lirst gave up most of their gold
to amalgamation. Concentration of
tailings was considered dilHrult and
uncertain, uud a report on a gold mine
lo tlm clfi-cl that the tailings hud lo he
concern rated and chlorinated was
enough lo discourage its exploitation.
Ali this is ji resume of history familiar enough, when recalled', lo thu older
gold miners, but to some extent at
least, news to thu younger element
who have been nursed into a master-
ship of the art ou the cyanide process,
ijonce.nl nit ion and matte smelting.
Quite unconsciously, yet naturally, the
beginnings of an art are apt to he considered our beginnings iu it, aud advances in thc art are apt to be unconsciously regarded as being nnly the
advances we ourselves made*
The total of advancing changes in
gold metallurgy is an exceedingly
great, one when Ihe beginning stage
and tlie present condition an- contrasted. Looking nt tlie intervening stages
it becomes comprehensible thai the
inesent coiulillon is itself a stage or
step from wlilllh still olher advances
are to lie inaile. The end of what can
bo done is not yel. Much successive
discovery thai, cheapens the cost of
recovery of gold fiom ores adds in a
geometrical rutin a new muss of oris
from which recovery run be made,'
It cannot be alliriueil i hut, the limit of
|jhiapncsK  has  been   attained,    The
cyanide process when first applied
commercially claimed to lie. the end,
yet the cyanide process as now applied
is cheaper. Also there is now a snhsti
tute for the cyanide process, cliloro
hromiiratinn, which i*i claimed still
cheaper at both points, percentage of
gold recovery nnd cost of treatuient.1
It may be possible thai it may not today be all lhat is claimed for it, but it
cannot be affirmed lhat it will not I*)
tomorrow. Concentration, when the
