The output of silver from the Broken
Hill mine, in New South Wales, Aus
tralia, for the latter half of 1800 was
2,502,163 ounces Hne and of lead 17.831
tons. The corresponding figures for
tbe Hrst half of the year were silver
2,218,234 ounces >nd lead 17,823 tons.
Them wero during the closing half of
the year 95,154 tons of ore treated in
the mine reduction works, averaging
lead 18.48 units per ton and silver
22.68 ounces.
During the year ended September
30,18119, the War Eagle mine, Rossland
produced 51,213 tons of ore of a smelter's gross value per ton of $16.28 or a

For the three months ended December
31, 1899, the output wus 22,603 tuns
valued at Ihe smelter at $17.71 per ton
gross or $11.71 net. The cost of development and extraction during the
f ot mer period was $6.29 per ton and
during the latter $5.22. The net prolit

The United Verdo copper mine,
Arizona, owned by Senator Clark uf
Montana Is reported to have paid divi

from products for the year 1800 are
slated to have been of a value of
$0,305,808 and its expenses $2,000,310
leaving a prolit of $3,735,522. Its receipts for the year averaged 13.3 cents
per pound fur the mine's output uf

14.301.182 lbs uf lellned cupper, tbe
yield thus being 1.28percent, uf cupper
from Ihe rock stamped, The average
return was 25.0 lbs of copper pur luu,
Fur several years previously the product had been nver 1.60 per cent, of
lhe rock stamped, or at least 30 lbs of
copper to the ton. The average cost
of the copper Was for 1808 8.17 cents
per pound and for 1800 10.06 cents.
The average receipts for the two years
respectively were 12.14 cents and 17.13
cents per pound, So although the average yield was lower and the cost
consequently higher, the better price
obtained gave a prolit of 6,17 cents per
pound for 1890 us compared with 3.07
cents for 1388.

Much indignation was aroused at
Camp McKinney last week by the appearance in tbe Greenwood "Miner" of
a paragraph, referring to that camp,
headed "a deserted village," and Thk
Advanck has lieen requested to direct
attention tolhe fact that this reflection
nn Oamp McKinney is entirely nnwai-
ranted. The "Miner." however, as
became a journal having regard tn the
good reputation it. had earned for
honest intention aud reliability, in its
latest issue acknowledged that, it had
lieen mis informed and published
Information setting forth the true
position at McKinney, which is a
favorable one. Under these circinii
stances there Is, therefore, now no
need for THB ADVANCB lo do more
than Join the "Miner" in ils good wishes for the continued prosperity uf
Oamp McKinney.
Tbe Greenwood "Times" last Wed
nesday published what was intended
to be a smart or severe criticism uf
the special correspondent for tbe
Boundary Creek district to the "News*
Adverlisei". wbo resides in Midway.
Thk Advance is not concerned about
the correspondent —he can take care
of himself, if nt any lime he think it
worth while to reply to the abuse with
which, failing fact s to controvert bis
statements, the "Times" is in tbe habit
of assailing bim. We aredetei mined,
though, tbat tbe mendacity of the
"Times" in asserting tbat Midway
"isalinost deserted because uf bis con*
nectiun therewith," shall not pass unchallenged. Tbe simple facts are tbat
to-day tbe population of Midway is
more than double what it was when
tbe "News-Advertiser's" correspondent
came to reside in tbe town, and the
nunilier of huildings has increased
more than ninety per cenl. We do
not desire to expose the neak points
of our neighbors, hut we would remind our Greenwood readers that tbe
repeated publication of mis-statements
In the "Times" about Midway can only
lead tu reprisals, which ut least will
do Greenwood no good and may
possibly do it harm, seeing that it has
some decidedly weak places.
It has nut been made public what
sort of a bargain was nude between
Hon. Smith Curtis, Provincial Minister
of Mines, and certain prominent citizens of Greenwood Inst week, in connection with the continued agitation
tu seenro lho removal of the Mining
Recorder's office trom Midway to
Greenwood, but the promise of the
Minister, if lie made one, has a decided
appearance of political jobbery—for
vote catching purposes and nothing
else. A minister desirous of acting
justly to the Kettle River Mining
Division as a whole would not commit
himself to so serious a step without
first ascertaining what would best
suit the convenience of the mining
community, or at any rate giving
miners and prospectors, whose interests and convenience should he his
first consideration, an opportunity of
making known their wishes in the
matter. With so much country to
the west of Midway now heing prospected, this taking in the Main Kettle
Kiver and its numerous tributaries,
including the West Fork, and as well
Rock Creek and on up to Camp McKinney, ton distance of from 90 to
40 miles west and north-west of Midway, and with so many location
records now being made from
this country, any milliliter not
possessed hy an all-consuming desire
In secure votes would, in common
fairness, look closely iuto the matter
ao as to acquaint himself with the
needs of the district. Itis evident to
all who know tbe posilion well that
the greed of Greenwood property owners rather than the convenience of
• majority of lhe miners and prospectors is at. the bottom of this determination todo an injustice to Midway in
particular aod the district in general.
The move can only he made at greater
eventual expense In the province,
There is, too, another aspect—will the
Governiuenl re-convey lo the Midway
Company tbe block of land conveyed
on the understanding that the Government oflice was to be located al
Midway or will it retain the land,
holding virtually hy breach of faith ?
Three carloads of Winnipeg ore, recently shipped gave returns of $18.
$22. and $24. per ton respectively. Altogether thus far nine cars have heen
shipped from this property.—Phoenix
The manager of the Sailor mine,
Camp McKinney, wires in reply to the
syndicate's secretary that good values
are shown hy the assays just made.
The figures are 1*57.50, $21.21, H18.n0 and
$15.96. per ton.-Toronto "World."
Tbe Rossland "Record" says: A
proposal has been made by the Hon.
G. E. Foster to the Rathmullen Company to sell the Maple Leaf claim, in
Snmmiteauip, to a subsidiary company for development. This will he
acted on at a meeting on April 25.
The Rathmullen would then develop
the Ben Hur claim in the same-district.
Mr. F. H. Latimer, C. E., returned
last week from 20-Mile Creek, in the
Similkameen district where he had
been surveying tbe claims in the Nickle
Plate group. J list before his departure
from there, the engine house and
blacksmith ahopa belonging to the
company caught fire by some means,
and were totally destroyed, with a
a considerable quantity of tools and
machinery; but the company will at
once put an an increased numher of
men and rebuild. Mr. Latimer speaks
highly of the prospects nf that locality,
and alao of the rich indications in the
vicinity of Olalla, the new town near
Keremeos, and predicts lively times
there in the near future.—"Inland Sentinel."

At a meeting of the directors of the
Cariboo McKinney Mining Company,
of Camp McKinney, held at the company's office on Saturday March 21,
after careful consideration it was resolved that it was desirable to proceed
to increase the stamps from 20 co 40,
and it was consequently resolved that
money enough should be reserved to
accomplish this purpose, and a dividend of 1 per cent was declared for
that quarter ending April 80, 1900.
The new stamps will lie ordered
within ten days, anil should be running
within a couple of months. The action
of the directors is based on the manager's report that a three years' supply
of ore is blocked out and that to do
justice to tbe property the capacity of
tbe mill should ho doubled.—Toronto
Will He do It.
If Mr. F. Carter-Cotton will take
the liberty in good part, we would suggest to him to drop his opposition to
the party lines movement, fall in with
bis natural associates, nnd go into immediate training as a candidate for the
Commons in the approaching Federal
elections. He is a clever man, and it
so determined can make trouble for
others in the Provincial contest; hut
fnr the present at least there is no useful place for him in the local field,
while at Ottawa there Is scope for his
abilities and opportunity for doing his
Province good service. Shnuld Sir
Charles Tupper carry the country, it
is more than probable that British
Columbia would he given representation in the next Cabinet, and we do

The following is taken from a letter
on the Similkameen District written for
the "Engineering and Mining Journal,"
New York, by C. A. Bramble;
At Keremeos a large amount of
work has been done on tbe various
properties throughout the camp, The
ore here is for tbe most part copper
pyritas and sulphides in diorite and
On the Opulence, natiye copper occurs in very considerable quantities.
Assays from this property are as high
as 02 per cent, copper from picked
specimens, the average heing about 20
per cent, copper, with very light gold
and silver values. On the Dolphin a
fine ore body has been opened up hy a
tunnel 80 ft. in length, the same body
heing shown up, both below and above
the tunnel, hy open cuts. On the
Roadside, a shaft nnw down 20 ft. has
disclosed a lot of sulphide ore. On the
Golindagroup a crosscut tunnel i»
now in 130 ft. and tbe indications are
that the main lead on this property
will soon be cut. Work is ahout lo lie
resumed on the Copper King, which
has a shaft down already some 90 ft.
On the Elkhorn group considerable
surface work has been done and a considerable amount of copper sulphide
and pyrrhotite disclosed. On tbe Bullion Mountain group bodies of high
grade copper sulphide have been
o|iened, and the management has com
menced an 800 ft. cross-cut tunnel,
which will tap the principal oredepoait
at a depth of ahout 70 ft., besides opening at least two nther leads of leas
size. The Searchlight tunnel, now in
90 ft., is being driven farther, the indications bring excellent.
At present the Black Brothers k
Woodcraft are huilding a new trail into Upper Keremeos Valley, and ns
soon as it is completed, supplies will he
taken in, and they will commence tbe
permanent development of their Gem
Mountain group of claims. On tbe
Dividend group a body of lion carrying
copper has just been cross cut for a
distance of 80ft., without finding the
opposite wall from the one where
work was started. Sinking will now
he commenced on thia showing, and
it is presumed will be carried on permanently.
Taken altogether the mineral showings throughout the Keremeos Valley
Camp, and especially In the vicinity of
Olalla Creek,where the largest amount
of development work of one kind and
another has been done, are in all respects exceptional. The long tunnel
on the Bullion Mountain group is being
driven and should show up some
heavy bodies of mineral. Arrangements am now being mode to bring
machinery into the ramp, and when
installed the work will go forward in a
min:!) more rapid manner than is possible by hand work only.

A Dastardly Trick.
About midnight of Friday, 30th uit.
a number of largu stones, were thrown
at the front door and windows of the
house owned by Mr. John Douglas,
situate near the Lancashire House
One stone was hurled through the
wire Mind and glass tearing down the
inside window blind and roller. It it
understood that the identity of the
perpetrators it tbis dastardly trick
has heen ascertained, but that criminal
prosecution has been deferred so
aa to give time for an apology and pay'
ment of the cost of repairing the
damage, and so avoiding proceedings,
It is interesting to note, in this connec
tion, that there is at present a prisoner
in tbe local lock-up "doing" 30 days
for window breading at Cascade.

Thursday, Wth ulto. This is Mr.
Burns' third visit during the two years
Mr. A. A. McPhail haa been in charge
of the school. The flrst took place
shortly after Mr. McPhail commenced
his duties aa teacher; the second was
paid ahout a year ago and on that occasion the inspector reported that the
school had considerably improved
during the year. Last week the inspector stated that "the school had
greatly improved in every respect,"
adding that not only did the pupils
know much more of the subjects
taught them, but they were much
sharper than he had found them on
the occasion of his previous visits.
lt is hut fair to the teacher to mention that the school would prohahly
have made even a hetter showing and
tbe attendance would have been larger
but for the fact that the recent vaccination of a number of tbe children had
interfered with loth tbe attendance
and progress of the scholars. There
are now 61 on tbe roll, but only 31

is by no means an average attendance,

A OoM American OM.
The gold statue of "The American
Girl," whirh is to be exhibited at the
Paris exposition, was successfully cast
on Mch. 21. Miss Maud Adams, the
actress, was the model, and Bessie Potter Vennah was the sculptor, The
statue mounted on its base, will he six
feet in height, the figure being of Miss
Adams' own height. It weighs 712
pounds and the bulliou used is valued
at $187,001). Miss Adams' gown is nf
the simplest sort. It is a summer
dress of chiffon. Lace ruffles extend
its length and gathered at the
waist ihey give a kind of blouse effect
at the bosom. The sleeves aie tight
from shoulder to wrist The arms
drop to full length on both sides, Tin-
hair sraveshack from the f ir"he.ul and
is parted slightly to the left. The
pose is that of taking a step forward,
MMway to Curlew by Water.
Major Leckie, general manager of
the Republic Co's mines and Mr. .1. C,
Robertson, engineer in charge for the
same company, bave been in Nelaon
for several days arranging to have
some barges constructed. These bilges will l-e used on the Kettle Kiver,
from Midway to Curlew, iu order to
shorten tbe haul to Republic. This
route is contemplated on account of
the soft condition of the roads betw een
Grand Forks and Curlew. Several
steamboat men have been employed lo
survey the Ketlle River and ascertain
the feasibility of the plan, to examine
the channel and waterway and to locate the most desirable place for landings. If this scheme lie found practicable, it will divert to Republic In-ight
which is now going in from Grand
Porks and send it lo Midway. This
would have a serious effect upon
Grand Porks trade. It Is not likely,
however, that the C. P. K. will make
a very strong effort to prevent i he
carrying out of the proposed scheme,
on account of the recent attacks made
on tlieC. P. R by lhe press of Grand
Porks.-Nelson "Miner."
