A 400-TON SMELTER
Will Shortly be Erected near Midway
by the Standard Copper Co.
THE PYRITIC SMELTING SYSTEM
Makes it Possible to Treat Low Grade Ores at a
Profit-Will   Furnish   Employment  for   a
Large Number of Men.
Andrew Luidlaw, General Manager
of the Standard Copper Co,, accompanied hy Iiis solicitor, A. M, Whiteside,
drove down on Wednesday of
last week In look over tin* Bile for
the smelter which is shortly to be constructed between Boundary Falls and
Midway. Thn Bite which has heen
selected Is on Ken's ranch, It Is an
ideal location for a smelter and in Mr.
Laldlaw's opinion Is lhe most suitable
location to be found any plane ln the
district,
Mr. Laidlaw visited Midway lust fall,
and shortly after leaving here went to
Denver and Leadville t" watch the
operations of pyrltlc smelters there
and iilsu fl see the results of the lests
iiuide nl Boundary ore. These lests
were satisfactory In every wny. In
Colorado ore running fnun J8.60 u> $12
a ton is trented at a profit, Tlie conditions here nre still more favorable as
the ore in practically Belf-fliixlng, and
in nny event lime can lie secured here
al a lower cost than in Denver. Mr.
Laidlaw is not at liberty In publish the
assays and analyses of the ores from
the different properties, but the average analysis per tun of ore! shipped to
Leadville from lhe Mother Lode, 13. ('.
and Gulden Crown mines, was as follows i

A, B. 0. Davis, manager of the Stan*
rtiird Smelting Company, Denver, lmd
tbis to suy in reference lo lhe samples
senl by Mr. 1' Idlaw :
"Replying to your Interrogatory re-
guiding lbe 1(1 samples of ore assayed
mul analyzed by me, as to their adapt
ability to the pyrltlt or copper matting
process, would say that I encountered
nothing in nny of snid samples thai
wnuld render Ihem ohjectlonal for said
process. As a mutter nt I'uct Ihey are
highly desirable, and 1 might especially
emphasize the fuel regarding the R,
Bell, Marguerite, Hesperus nnd Phot)
nix samples. Wilh the possible addition of a small per cent of lime they
wonld appear to be self-fluxing. The
opinion is bused on actual connection
.villi pyritie or matte smelting for the
past three yenrs in the  capacity  of
assayer, chemist mul metallurgist of
the Cleopatra smelter, at Ouray, Col-
irado, the BettliH Vista 8. and H. Com-
pany, and the Boston Gold-Copper
Stnelllilg Oompany at Leadville, Col-
nriido.
With so much encouragement from
smelter returns, and owning such
promising properties its the Marguerite
mul Standard, Mr. Laidlaw had no
difficulty in Interesting strong Btianoial
men iu Quebec iu the Standard Copper
Coinpaiiy. The president of the conipany is Win. l'riee, a millionaire lum
ber merchant, Hun, Adelard Turgeon,
minister nf colonization and mines,
Quebec, is vice-president, ami II. T.
Mncbin, assistant provincial treasurer,
is treasurer. Tbo capital of the coin*
pany is $600(b00, assessable to par, and
the registered olllce of the conipnny is
at Greenwood. A few days ago the
company paid .1. P, Harlan and Dr,
MacMartin, New  York,  $11,250, the
final pay nt on the Marguerite.  The
order for the pyrltlc smelting plant
waa on June 21 placed with the Denver
Engineering Works; The plant has a
guaranteed capacity of 21)0 tons daily,
but Mr. Laidlaw has made arrangements for a power plant of double that
capacity and the huilding will be erected for a 400-ton smelter,
When the smelter is running it will
employ about UK) men. Its operation
will mean much for Midway,
The Standard Copper Company,
Limited, hns by contract with the
patentees secured the exclusive right
to erect and Use the standard hot and
cold blast pyritie furnaces in the
Boundary district, This system of
smelting gold, silver and copper ores
allows a high per cent of silica and
utilizes the waste heat of the furnace
to produce lo produce the hot blast,
thereby largely reducing tbe cost nf
smelling the ores. Another grenl advantage and s.iving is Unit the ore nuiy
be dumped direct from tlie mine cars
Into the furnace bins. These advantages will allow the company to smelt
ni less expense than by any olher system and enstlre large dividends. Had
Midway selected the site for the smelter it would have been placed in exactly the same spot chosen by the Standard Copper Company, It is far
enough away from the town to escape
most of ibe disagreeable smoke nod ai
the same time is close enough for Midway to benelit by its operation,
The importance of a smelter at this
point is not found simply in the money
thnt will be expended in ils construction or in keeping iJ in operation after
, it. is constructed. The money thus
expended Will, of course, he of much

People with long memories may be
Able lo recall the ideas generally held
as to lhe plea unit holiday (rip lhe
First Canadian Contingent was to
enjoy. The following little extract
from General Sinith-Dorieu's brigade
orders gives some sort of picnic the
buys are having! The 10th biigade
hns achieved a record of which any
infantry might be proud. Since the
date it was formed (12, 2,1000) it has
marched 020 miles; often on half rations : seldom on full. It has taken
pan in the capture of ten towns, fought
in leu general actions, and on 27 other
days. Iu one period of 110 days il
fought in 21 of them, and marched 327
miles. Casualties between 400 uud
500.   Defeats-Nil.
It wnuld take at least three volumes
to hoi,I all the literature published in
the various newspapers ahout tbe cut
worm, but if put in bonk form we
doubt very much if it would prove of
imprest, to the average reader. One
authority says a mixture of Paris
green and bran has leen found efficacious in checking their ravages, Audi her learned professor, wild has made
a lifelong study of tbe cut worm, suggests the use of fire crackers or Chinese
bombs, while a third, who at some
time in his life has evidently become
attached to a sheet nf the sticky stulf,
feels certain that tangleioot Hy paper
in large quantities would in time
greatly decrease tbeir numbers.
Would it not be well to use ull these
remedies at once ? Taken collectively
they should prove effective in killing
the little insects, in fact they might he
used for larger game.
Ulilixcd, Already there hns been
completed and put into use l."i,000linise
power on the Canadian side of the rivcr
by the tame company. The combined
companies have already spent sonic
$5,000,000 uud have plans foi the expenditure of aboui $15,000,000 mure,
which sum has been placed at their
disposal. In intimate connection wiih
the plans of 1 lie companies are others
for the manufacture of iron and steel
and the construction of ships at Col-
lillgWOod, ou Georgian Bay, where the
Government and the municipality have
grant eil large concessions. The power
plains now under way on ihe Auiiii-
can side consist nf a canal two miles
long, now half built, debouching into a
wide forehay and passing tlirough a
stone power house, 1,308 feet long, sel
crossways of lhe sl renin. III this house
ure lo be set 820 wheels und 80,500 burse
power dynamos, Nearly all ihe power
lo lie derived from Ihese plants hns
been contracted for and will be used
for tbe manufacture of carbide,steel,
paper, alkali and olher products. The
canal is designed to use aliout half the
regular outflow of water from Lake
Superior,
Eastern Canadians seem to think
Ihal Briiish Columbia has no grievance
against the Chinese and Japanese.
What do they know about it ? There
are only a few of the Mongolians in
the East and they urea novelty. Their
numbers are so comparatively few
ihat the demoralizing elfei t they bave
upon labor is not felt, They forget
Unit in this Piovince the sons of Canada are being compelled lo compete hi
the labor market with a lol of these
rice-eaters and thul if steps be not
soon taken to pre ventlbeir immigration
In Ihis country the laboring man in
the West will gradually lie dragged
down as near to their level as it is possible for a white man to go. Tbey are
a curse to this or any other civilized
country, but the average Easterner
does not think so. They love the poor
heal hen like a brother. They would
like lo have him mix with society and
adorn their drawing rooms, with white
servants to wait on him. British Columbia wnuld be very much pleased to
kt the Easterners have all of them.
Bul if a few thousand of lliem were
turnid loose in the east to run the
laundries, cook, work on the farms und
iu the lumber regions of North Ontario, ready to work for half the wages of
a white man, and thus shutting out
whites in every avenue of industry,
Eastern Canada would have a different
opinion of tbe Celestials, They would
ibeii see why it is that Briiish Coliiniliia is opposed to Orientals, but until
the East has had a sickener uf au overdose of Chinese they will not, understand why it i.s that this Province in
particular is so much opposed lo them,
hut in the meantime it would be well
for Eastern Canadians to refrain from
expressing an opfnton about something
they know noiliing at all about.
fc
The promise of $8000 by the Provincial Government for a wagon road
from Westbridge to Beaverton is wel-
ronienews to Ilia entire district. This
amount if properly expended will
build a good road between the two
places, hut it wnuld be well for the
Government to prolit by Lheir experience in building the road between Kock
Creek and West bride, A good road was
build between these two points, hut it
cost ui much muney. A less expensive
road would have done equally as well,
If the Government undertake to build
It pays to fight your own battles.
That is now tlie motto of the municipality of Richmond, They have found
that it comes high In call out the soldiers of the Queen. It costs money to
give 200 of the gallant hoys a week's
outing. The good peiiple of the uiuni-
cipulity of Richmond will in future
think twice before issuing invitations
to a whole regiment. One. of the officers of the Duke of Connaught's Own
is authority for tlie statement that it
will cost the municipality for the services of the militiamen the sum of
$1,000 in all, possibly even a shade over
that amount. In tlie first place the
payroll will amount to $2,000. Then
Ihere is Ilie steamer's bill for transput-
I atlon of the militiamen to and from
Steveston. Two trips of tbe Comox at
$250 a trip will cost a total for transportation of $200. Allowing 50 cents
per day I o each man for provisions will
amount to something in the vicinity of
$700, Then incidentals will add to
tliis tidy little sum, perhaps another
$71X1. They should bave profited by
the experience of Belleville, Ontario,
That city culled out the Toronto and
Belleville Volunteers during the Grand
Trunk strike of 1877, when traffic east
and west of Belleville was practically
suspended for a couple of weeks, it
was regarded as the last resort for
keeping the line open, mid the conveying of Her Majesty's mails lo and from
points east and west of the city.   T

Again Canada romes to the front,
and will soon be able to claim the
greatest water power system in lbe
world. The Cleveland, Ohio, Engineer
says: There is in process ot building
a canal two miles long, carrying a
stream of water 22 feet deep and more
than 200 feet Wide, big enough for the
larger ships, that is to supply force to
turbines and dynn inns capable of generating 40,000 horse power,   The fall

the municipality of Belleville was responsible for the calling out of tbe militia and therefore should bear the expense thereof. We nre sorry for the
municipality of Richmond that it
should have trouble with the fishermen
and sincerely hope lhat no like difficulty will arise over llsbing in the Keltic
River at Midway, but if it should we
will not bring the coast militia here on
an excursion. We will hnycolt the
fishermen, be they white or any of the
colors, by refusing to eat the little
speckled trout.

Is There Any Difference?
An English journal recently wondered whether tbe pronunciation of
tbe ignorant classes or of some nf the
cultivated classes is the worse, Fur
instance, the groom says: "'Arry,
'obi my'oss." But the curate savs,
"He that hath yaws to yaw, let him
yaw."   And the doctor's wife says:
'Yawge, please go to Awthab and
awdab the hawse, and don't forget to
look at the Hah."   And the vicar savs;
'If nur gracious sovering lady wur-ah
to diet'"

Nickel in the slot machine,
Tell me what you really mean,
When I put yon through yonr paces
Why are you so shy on aces?
As lhe laat live cents I try
Why are you hut seven high,
When the next man's venture brings
Him a row of solid kings?
Why are you so coy and fickle
To the wooing nf my nickle ?
What's the push and what's the pull
Needed to procure a full ?
Why must I forever wait,
For the vision of a straight?
Why is it you never rush
To the top a royal flush ?
Tell me, what on earth the use is
Of so many trays and deuces?
Don't you know your action jars
Would be smokers of Cigars'?
Just once more before I sup-
Show your little aces up.

International Wheat Corner," which
appears In "The Fortnightly," di clares
thai prefacing the suggestion with the
statement thai Russia and America
supply nine -tenths "f lhe world's
wheat, Russia, In 1800, proposed in lhe
roiled Slales to combine to corner the
wheat crop  of that year,    A rlw,
ihe writer said, declined tu entet the
deal, and the Secretaty nf Agriculture
demolished the elaborate stai ist les and
arguments of Russia, declaring thai
supply and demand is the suh- regulator of value,
"li is nol tbe flrst time such a combine has been suggested," said the
secret ary of the London Corn Exchange
lo-dav, "hul. I did not know ii had
actually heen proposed, India, the
Argentine Republic, Australia and
Canada would, in a shnrl time, lie ahle
