S. II. C. Miner Says It Can be Oot
in the Boundary Country.
In the course of a speech In reply to
u toast, at n banquet tendered S. II. I'.
Miner, president of IlieCrunby Smellec
Company, recently, Mr. Miner made
reference lo the inillinn industry of the
Boundary country us follows :
"I desire to refer lo some of the great
mines of the continent, mines of which
I huve cognizance, und in some of
which 1 am Intel est ed, The Calumet
\- Hecla is one of the richest in the
world. Its very name represents something fabulous, yet it ranges in value
from 1{ to 6 per cent copper, an aver*
age of ill per cenl. This signifies $6.60
ore, taken on the unit husis. hot last
year the mine cleared $10,000,000, pay*
inn $8,000,0u0 to the shareholders, The
dividends it has paid 10 date exceed
$68,000,000,   Every ton of rock bus to
he raised from a depth ranging from
4,000to6,000feet. In other words, ji
depth of nearly u mile hns been attained. Dpwards of $10,000,000 has been
expended for equipment, and 86 years
hns heen occupied in bringing tho
workings to this stage, nnd yet the
mine does not curry n cent in gold values, The ore is milled, treated and
senl to New York at a net cosl of from
lltotlj cents per pound.
"In the Tamarack, which has the
siuiii- lode as the Calumet, $400,000 wjis
expended in Hve years in Binking a
shaft to catch the lend at a depth of
■l.'li) feet. There were no surface
showings, but an engineer assured the
owners wliere the ore could I." found.
The opinion of lhe export, hoih In regard to cost, depth nnd time, has been
verified almost to the lei ter. With a
pur value of $25 the shares lo day are
worth $20(1. Last year the Osceola
mined 1,860,000 tons.
"In recent years efforts have been
directed to effect every economy in
mining, equipment and transportation,
the idea entertained being to bring
smelt ing 01*68 not exceeding $5 to ll
profitable point, Coder such conditions husiness is created for an Immense population and enormous profits
are made on the large turnover, I
s;iw the limits of Phoenix and realized
thai we hnd a world heal er.    We have
kept clear of the markets, not attempting to protect our shares. We have
10,000,000 tons of ore in siirlit that can
be treated under the conditions I described a moment ago. We demonstrated I hat at the smelter to-day. I informed our smelter superintendent,
Mr. Hodges, n yenr ngo th it we iiiust.

Reasonable handling charges when
fully equipped, little economies hero

80-drill plant in the near future and
will be ill n position within 15 months
to treat 2,000 tons of ore a day at Brand
Forks, I expect these figures will he

The Michigan mines, operating their
ow ti refineries, turn out finished copper
at a cost of (I cents per pound. We
have not yet worked out upon ion of
the troiitnieu' problem, We must
erect our own refinery, Copper matte,
after treatment In New York, nets
ahout 1IU cents per pound here. Well,
we purpose to have this New York

The Toronto Telegram, in a recent
editorial, compliments the Laurier
Government on substituting a Thursday in the middle of October for the
last Thursday in November ns Canada's
Thanksgiving Day, but the Telegram
Is not satisfied with I his change alone,
It suggests thnt Thursday be changed
to Monday.
Dr. Burundi) of Knglaiui, the famous
reclaimer of the young in an Interview ut Toronto recently expressed
himself as surprised nl. the evidence of
prosperity existing in the Doniinion
compared wilh his visil of seven years
ago, He stated Ihut the slock of Cun-
adiuns has gone up to the lop notch in
England wilhin the past yeai, ndding
that it was a great thing to lie u Canadian in London nowadays.
Much inlerest hus heen taken iu
Eastern Canada, as well us it, this Pro
vince, in the application fur a charter
for the Kettle Hiver Valley Railway.
The Toronto Telegram makes reference
to it ns follows :
By a majority of one or two votes
the British Columbia legislature hus
decided to charter the Kettle Biver
Valley railway despite the opposition
of l he O. P. R. The chartering ot all
independent line to Grand Korks is the
first black eye which Ibe 0, P. R. bus
received at the bunds of u Ounudi.-in
legislative body for many a long day.
An opposition which stood by the people seems to have been the foundation
of n successful attack nn the 0. P. R.
monopoly. The opposition was recruited by a sufficient number of government supporters to puss the charter
for a competing line. When the cor
potations do not own both government
and opposition, as uf Ottawa and Tor
onto, the light for public rights is not
always a losing battle,

taken part in milking lhat count ry
what it is to-day, so that the early
completion of lhe road is not only it

which the people are Justly entitled tu.
The Liberal Choice.
Tin. News-Adverliser, in making
reference to the doubling of the mineral tux of 1 per cent by the Provincial
Govemment, says:
Notwithstanding the practically
Unanimous protest of the metal mining
industrialists of tin- province, the pro
posal for the doubling nt the present
mineral tux of 1 per cent bus been carried, Mr. Turner's policy of increasing
expenditure hy leaps and bounds, and
fur in excess of revenue, rendering this,
in Iiis and his colleagues' opinion, inevitable. It is specially unfortunate
that in levying this added taxation no
discrimination is made lietween high
uml low grade ores, lt will, us a rule,
be far easier, for example, for $100 ores
from the Slocuii to pay a 2 per cent
duty on ore output, after deducting
freight und tre.ument charges, thnn
for Boundary's copper gold ore to pay
1 per eent on the output of $8 nml $0
ores, afler making like reductions.   A
2 per cenl duty on the latter class of
ore will lessen only too appreciably u
none too large present margin for pro
fir.
The announcement is officially made
Ihal no more pn per mall will he des
patched for points on the Lower Yn
kon rivcr by the United States postal
officials until next spring win n the
river is again open for navigation, All
papers which are mailed for these
points in the various offices throughout the United Slates will be held at
the Scat lie office during the winter
This course, it is claimed, is necessary,
as all mail which goes np the Yukon
after lbe river closes must be curried
on lhe hacks of packers, or by means
of dog-teams. While letters can be
thus carried, paper mail is very bulky,
and the post-office authorities have
decided lo hold it in Seattle till spring.
The innil for Dawson, however, and
points on the river between thnt city
and Bennett, will continue for Ihe
present to be carried as usual, Tbe
White Pass Railroad simplifies lhe
matter of transpurtating paper mail
to all points on the Upper Yukon. It
is understood, however, thul paper
mail for Ihese points will nlso lie dis-
conlinued us soon as the upper river is
rlosed by the ice.
Hkvklstoke, Sept. 6.—The Liberal
convention was held at Revelstoke to-
day al 10 a. m., every portion of Yale,
Cariboo and Kootenay heing represented, Amongst the visitors were
Senator Teiiipleman, Geo. R. Maxwell,
.1. ('. MrLiigHii and Smith Curtis.
Hewitt Bostock, nominated by Curtis,
was elected by the convention enthusiastically and unanimously, but replied
iiy wire from Vancouver : "I appreciate most deeply the most generous
and unanimous expression of the convention. I regret exceedingly that my
desire to meet the views cannot prevail over circumstances which make it
impossible for me to accept."
A long list of resolutions was passed
thanking Bostock for his past services
for Bullish Columbia, including a
census every five years to readjust const il ueiicies and per capita tax, cabinet
representation, division of constituency into three, all public charters to
have a clause allowing the government
to purchase, approval nf the enforcement of the fair wage clause, and the
establishment of a Iniieau of raifway
statistics und bureau of conciliation,
doubling per capita on Chinese and un
net on lines of the Natal act, establishment of tbe Dominion Inn can of mines,
endorsements of Ihe Laurier government, congratulations on preferential
trade, imperial penny peslage and
contribution nf men and money in the
defense of the empire in South Africa,
uud acting regarding homestead fees
in Biiiisb Oolumhla, In addition
there wns the following : "We recognize wilh approval the nclion of tile
government in the provision made for
ihe free return into Canada of lead of
Canadian origin smelted in Canada
but refilled abroad, and iu view of the
large production of lend bullion now
going iti in Canada (u production thai
u few years since did not exist) aod in
view nf the gieut Inequality of duties
levied on lead products and other material used in the manufacture of
paints, such duties ranging from nothing lo 35 per cent of the value thereof,
the convention would recommend that
the tai iff of customs of lead products
and such other material used iu tbe,
manufacture of paints coming into
Canada be revised and put on a parity
wilh euch olher, and with Ihe duties

people to beware of "wildcat" mines,
have the good grace to define the
term, Let him do so and every condition he applies will be met by pio-
ducing a great mine which, at one
lime, possessed the alleged attributes.
Is a mine a "wildcat'' because the
slock in lhe coinpaiiy owning it is
selling at a nominal figure? If so,
then the Granite Mountain waa a
"wildcat," fnr its stock was sold for
its stock was sold for less than ten
cents a share, yel it puid over $18,000,-

These mines weie once only prospects
