Twenty three McGill University
students, .'iiTiuiipiinii'il tiy their pro*
frssur visited the Boundary country
lust week. The parly hus heen in the
province slncu ahout thc first of May,
Tlie object of the excursion is for the
purpose of ediicaiing the students in
actual in in i uk The putty is in charge
ot Dr. Porter, who ig at the head of
the mining department of Mi (iiil. He
is assisted in Riving, the boys instruction!! ahmit mining in B. O. hy Prof.
Adams, one of lhe McGill faculty.
The programme, which was urrunged
in .Montreal hefore leaving, of visiting
only one mine in euch cump is heing
curried oul, it heing thought that
time could not he found to visit, all
the mines. The students are kept
very husy and aie gaining much information; Dr. Poller suys that the big-
gist surprise the party received
throughout the tlip wus the mines of
the Boundary.
Nnw that lbe students urn visiting
the Province Ihe following description
of ihe capabilities und facilities which
the mining and met allurgy liranch of
McGill University possesses for special
Instruction iu this very important
Held of knowledge,limy pi nve nf inier-
est to mosl of our renders :
It may he premised that McGill
University was the first university in
Canada to make mining a subject of
insl ruction. Twenty nine years ago
Dr. Harrington, nim is still actively
associated with the university, now in
the capacity of Greenshields Professor
of Chemistry and Mineralogy, Led tir
er in Assaying, und Diteclorof Chemistry und Mining Building, iiiiniumced n
series of lectures on metallurgy and
mining. The following session saw
Ihe graduation of lhe Hrsl McGill men
in this course. Since then the work
has heen kept tip without a break, Hrsl
hy Dr. Harrington, then, afler many
years by Mr. VV. A. tiarlyle. Ma. E.,
(who was afterwards Provincial Mineralogist for British Columbia); then liy
Mr. ,1. E. Hardman and now liy Dr.
Porter. The ordinary mining course
at McGill consists of preparatory
scientific work in general engineering,
extending over Iwo years, followed by
special advanced work in mining,
geology, metallurgy (including assaying), mineralogy, surveying, etc ln
addition the sl orients uie required lo
spend two months at actual Held sur
vering and six weeks ai practical min
ing, each summer, these practical
studies comprising lhc chief work of
what are known as the summer schools.
Thus the usual terms al Ihe university
are added to, and in this wny practically the whole of whal would otherwise liu the summer vacation is occupied, partly liy surveying and mining
and partly liy home study. These
summer schools involve a visit of
several weeks' duration to some mining district, tlie itinerary of which has
been first arranged by the professor.
In 1808 the "slimmer school" students
were taken lo some large coal and gold
mines iu Nova Sent in and in 1HIHI
lo the anthracite legion of Pennsylvania and Ilie great Iron and steel
works near Philadelphia nnd New
York ; iu WO attention was given to
individual work by lhe students in a
number of different milling and engineering enterprises tu the Kast, and
now iu 1001 British Columbia is lieing
visited. About twenty students are
availing themselves of tbis exceptional
opportunity of obtaining Irom personal observation and instruction on the
spot, a knowledge of the mineral resources of tliis, the banner province-
iis legrirds milling—of th" Dominion.
They are iiccompunhri by Dr. ,1. B.
Porter, professor of Kilning i Dr. V. D.
Adams, professor nf geology, and Mr.
F. W, Draper, assistant professor of
metallurgy ; so that the advantage* of
the trip may lie Utilized lo the utmost,
Kuch student receives a printed outline of ihe points to be observed in
each class of mine and smelter visited.
A'< be goes along he lul.es full mites,

itinerary informal lectures are deliver
ed upon lhe geological characteristics
of the country being ttavelled through
and the special features of the mines
that are to lie visited are pointed out.
At the end of the journey memoirs,
either upon the whole of the works
visited or some portion in detail, must
lie written by each student during the
remainder nf the vacation, and these
will he of great value in furnishing a
permanent record of the expedition,
In 1805 Mr.-now Sir W. C, Macdonald, of Montreal, already Ihe greatest of McGill benefactors, foresaw the
present rapid developnienl of the
West, and begun to lay plans to provide what is now understood to he thu
most complete mining and metallurgical establishment possessed by any
university in tbe world. In December,
1HIIK, ibe completed Macdonald Chemistry and Mining Building of the McGill University was formally opened.
The Mining and Metallurgical laboratories, sit bate in the lower part of the
structure, aie fully equipped. They
are thus described in the McGill calendar.
These laboratories, with Ihe lecture
rooms and library,! he professor's office,
and looms tor apparatus, supplies and
fuel, are very conveniently arranged,
individually and with regard to one
another, and occupy Ihe lower part of
the main building and the whole of
both wings. The total floor space covered is approximately 17,800 square
feet, divided us follows :
Mining and Ore-Dressing Laboratory
and Milling Room, 5,000 square feet;
Metallurgical Laboratory, or Furnace
Room, 4,000 square feet ; Assay Laboratory, 2,6(0 square feet; Wet Assaying
Rooms, 5(0 square feet ; Technical
Lecture Room, 7,"i0 square feet: Library and Drawing Room, 750 square feet;
Offices, Stores and so forth, 4,000
square feet.
The two rooms flrst mentioned aie
of great size, and lire the chief laboratories of the department. In these it
is possible to take any ores of gold,
silver, copper or lead in Ihe condition
in which they come from the mines,
and lo 1 rent them from beginning to
end precisely as Ihey are treated in
the ore-dressing works and smelting
plants of the mineral regions. They
may therefore be considered as constituting a small commercial plant for
tbe actual production of metals. They
differ from commercial plants, however, in that an ordinary nre dressing
stiiblisbment or smelter is designed
lo treat tbe ores of only one district
unri sometimes of only one part of a
dislrict. The University laboratories
must, of course be adapted to all ores
now found or likely to he found in lhe
Dominion, and therefore contain a
greater numher of pieces of apparatus
than are to he found in one rummer
ciul establishment, although probably
110case will come up when all of these
machines will he used for any one test.
The Milling Room is equipped wilh
a complete workin planl, capable of
treating, if necessary, 10 to 'Al tons of
ore per day, the chief pieces of apparatus lieing: Rock crushers of three
kinds (Blake, Dodge and Comet.) to
break the large pieces of ore to small
size. Stamp mills, of tm and 050 Ihs.
respectively, forthe line crushing and
amalgamating of gold ores. Hunting
don mill, for crushing and amalgamating. Rolls, both coarse nui fine, to
reduce 01 es to powder when necessary.
Ttommels and selves for sizing the
crushed ores. Adjustable Hart/., Ool*
Imu and slide jins, wlih 2 and 4 coin-
part men ts, for concentrating minerals
by gravity, Revolving, bumping and
belt tables. Fine ninner, Willley table, etc., for separating valuable minerals contained in fine sands and crushed rock, Plates, pans and barrels for
amalgamating gold und silver ores.
Spii'/.kusten. spit/.lulteii, magnetic Sep
anilors, coal washers, huddles and
various other special pieces of ore-
dressing apparatus.
The machinery above mentioned is
not in miniature ; it i.s of full size, such
us tbe graduates -vill afterwards Hud
in use in working establishments, and
is provided witb hydraulic lift, belt
and bucket elevators, hand trucks, etc.,
It is, however, so arranged that each
piece can Ihi worked by itself, and
taken apart and cleaned up ; and such
of the Iai get-pieces us cannot be used
for small quantities of material are
duplicated in miniature hy working
models for handling small lots of material, The laboratory, while thus
adapted lo illustrate continuous work
on a comparatively large scale, is even
more perfectly designed for experimental work on as small a scale ns is
compatible with accuracy of result.
The motive power used in the laboratories is electricity, generated in the
university power and light station,
and utilized ihrough a number of electric motors conveniently placed near
Ihe machines to be operated. The department is equipped with the most
approved    apparatus   for   electrical
make constant and accurate determinations of the amount of power used
by each machine, mid for any especial
condition Of use.
The Metallurgical Laboratory is fitted with a water jacket blast-furnace,
21 inches inside diameter, with the
necessary blast apparatus for Blocking
lead and copper; also with a hand
reverhcriilory furnace, a Bruckner-
cylinder furnace, an English cnpellii*
tion furnace, and several crucible furnaces.
It has also a lead-lined rhloiinalii.il
barrel for high pressures, with filter
press, air pump, etc., and several small
vats, barrels, etc., for the chlorination
and leaching of silver and other ores,
also both large and small cyanide extraction plants for gold ores, these being the new methods which are revolutionizing the gold metallurgy of the
world and producing such extraordinary yields In the mines in South Africa,
the United States and Australia.
In audition to the above named
apparatus, the department is Hlted
with an electric fiu-miie, and with a
full equipment of electric pyrometer*
of both the LaChutrllieraiidCullendar
types. It also hus a Mahler calorimeter and several other less elaborate
calorimet 1 ic Instrument s.
The two main laboratories ate very
large and well lighted, and are each 2ft
feet high in the clear. Close to Ihem
are the rooms for storage of ores, fuel,
etc., etc , fiom which clear level passages lead to the elevators and connect
with lbe crushers and furnaces. There
are also several overhead hoists and
travellers. Material can therefore lie
moved from one point to another with
the greatest ease, and pieces nf apparatus can be readily taken apart and,
if necessary, moved by the since
It is not the purpose of the university
to use these laboratories for commercial work, although tbey are quite
large enough for such service. They
arc tote used solely for educational
work and for investigation; and, owing
to their thoroughly practical nature,
instruction given in them will be of
immensely greater value to lbe ."Indents than could lie the case if the
work were done only in miniature. At
the same lime, the investigation mude
liy means of such apparatus will be of
great use to lhe mining and metallurgical community, us they can be carried ont in all lespecls under working
conditions, and will, therefore, lie free
from Ihe disturbing causes likely lo
interfere with attempts to reproduce
commercial processes on a small scale.
The Assaying Laboratory is equipped
with a large soft coal assaying furnace,
and wilh a complete set of small muffle and crucible furnaces, some of each
being arrange1! for gas and gasoline,
and ot hers for coke and charcoal, as iu
some parts of the Dominion one of
these fuels must be used, while in ot her
parts another is found more desirable.
Connected with this laboratory is a
room with pump, bullion and assay
balances, and others equipped for wet
analysis of ores, and the olher chemical work required in connect ion with
the main investigations.
George W. Knit hei of Chicago, managing director of the Chicago & Briiish

of the Tribune is foolish to entertain

The lust issue of the Sandon Mining
K'vieiv contains thc following ;
"While eight or ten men were sitting
in a hotel at Midway one evening last
week, two masked men entered with
six shooters. One asked for all io hold

other relieved two of the nien of $550,
giving a Hrsl thought to the pockets in
which the wallets were found. The

No doubt the ahove was copied from
a despatch scut out from Midway regarding the recent hold up at limk
Cieek, as nothing of the kind occurred
at Mlilwny. Such carelessness in copying despatches not only has lhe effect
of furnishing the puhlic wiih unreliable
news, hut also makes the public uncertain as to the reliability of any infor
in iLiuii that is gleaned from papers
thu occasionally give space to such
incorrect news items.
The visil of ihe McGill summer mining school io Briiish Columbia is an
event of great Importance to this prov
iuce, but more particularly to the
Bouudary district. Although the students had read much of ihe mineral
resources of this district, they were
greatly surprised when they visited
the mines and saw the extent of the
ore bodies. Hitherto Ihey never
tlniiight that such large oi e bodies existed in this part of the province.
From this it can lie clearly seen lhat
su far nothing hiu been written regard
ing the mines of the Boundary thai
has given un idea of the great mineral
wealth it possesses, and thul there is
no way of oblaining un idea of this
but by visiting the mines, This the
students found when they visited the
Oul Ironsides and Knob Hill in I'hoe
nix camp and the Mother Lide, in
Deadwood. Their being convinced of
the wond'U'fiil mineral resources of the
B miidary country by it personal in-
spection of a few of its mines, should
prove a great advertisement for the
district, as the students of McGill will
doubtless have a good word to say
for ihis piovince, and more especially
the Boundary country, as a very promising Held tor milling investment.
The government of Briiish Columbia
has prepared a pamphlet dealing wilh
tii. mineral resources of the province,
i ir use  in   ihe Glasgow exhibition,
Ineu sh uld prove of great benefit us
•luui.d be the means ol furnishing
thousands nf people wuh liiftiriiiatton
concerning this great mineral province,
British Coliiniliia will nut have a com-
mis-louer ut ibis fair, but its interests
will be ably looked afler by Dominion
Commissioner Scott, and by the curator of mines for the Dominion, who is
A. K. Smart, formerly of Midway.
The pamphlet wus compiled by the department of mini's. It bears an attractive lithographed cover on"which are
written ihe words, "British Oulunihia,
the Mineral Province of Canada."
There is also u miniature map of Canada, showing the relative position of
this province to lhe rest of the Dominion. A map of the British Isles is
given a central position in Ih it of British Colunihia, in order to emphasize
the size of this province. A view of
the Purhament buildings occupies a
position on (be frontispiece, while
tliere are several cuts illustrating lhe

of the proyinuc, together with its mining laws, mineral out put, etc., is given

The action of Mr. Kaulback, member of parliament for Lunenburg, N.S.,
In bringing the question before the
House of Commons as lo whether ships
registered in the Dominion are entitled
to My the Canadian red ensign the
world.over, has proved that the Canadian flag is British, uud is entitled to
a Hoya Scotia ship.owned by Mr.Kanl
hack, lo haul down the Canadian flag
on penalty of a fine of IJ500, which Mr.
Kaulback claimed was in defiance of a
warrant of the British Admiralty, to
substantiate his claim Mr. Kaulhuck
obtained a copy of the Admiralty
warrant, which he read as follows i
"Whereas we deem il expedient
tliul-Canadian registered vessels shall
be permitted to wear the red ensign of
Her Majesty's fleet, with a Canadian
coat of in ins no the fly thereof;
"We do, by virtue of lhe power and

arms on the fly, to be used on hoard
vessels registered in the Dominion,
"Given under our hand and the seal
of the office of the admiralty Ihis 2nd
day of February, 1802."
In accordance with this permission
the Doniinion Government adopted a
regulation in regard to the Canadian
ting as follows :
"The area of the shield shall in no
case exceed one-fourth the area nf the
l'nion .lack of the particular ensign,
The shield shall he placed centrally in
that putt of the flag which is beyond

This is the correct Canadian red en-

Those who will not work, neither
shall they eat. The principle involved
in that sentence is admirable, but it is
very commonly applied lo the wrong
class, It is generally thrown in lhe
faces of Ihe poor, whilst it should I*
applied to tiie rich. The flrst enuncia-
tor of the principle was himself a poor
iniin, and his sympathies were uot
with the rich, hut wiih his own class.
If tlie rich man were not allowed to
unl without working, we should not
have such a boom in the millionaire
business, Tha man who eats a dinner
and has nol earned that dinner must
have stolen it, Such is the opinion of
many Ad vanced Thinkers, and whether
il is true or not, nothing hut. good can
result, from considering the subject.
The remarks are produced by the published statement, that iu the Canadian
Presbyterian Church there are nearly
four hundred ordained ministers without- charges, and in the other churches
the proportion is equally great. So
laige a number of educated men living
ou the people—mun who eat but do
uot work -is a heavy strain upon those
who do work. The question has Isien
proposed—ought u Christian clergy
iiiiui to work und earn his living and
thus perform his Christian duties
without payment, lt would seem ud"
for a Church of England clergyman to
earn Ids living all the week by, say
shoeiiiakiig, and perform his Niuid.it,
services without payment and earn
on his clergyman's duties of an even
ing after closing his shoe workshop,
hut when we see that many hundreds
of men, educated tor the Christian
ministry, are hanging around wailing
for a profitable job, it is time to give a
sensible and unprejudiced condition to
ihe matter, The Founder of Christianity, ought (he clergy to walk in
His footsteps.

A. F, Oliver, Secretary,
At the Inst general nieeling of Ihe
company lhe stockholders failed In
uli'i I auditors, and ns the nctions nf
the managing director huve heen ques-
tinned hy a, few iriespnusihle hrnkers,
the directors feel it their duty to show
how the money has heen expended hy
culling this extraordinary meeting,
Ii has heen claimed hy two firms nf
lirnkers, one at Greenwood, B. 0., and
the ollmr at Spnkano, Wash., that the
moneys nf I he company hnve nol heen
properly handled, They have so intimated in their Weekly liullelins which
ihey hsuc once a week to their correspondents. Owing tn the ahove nun-
plaint the directors of the conipany
recently visited the mine in a Imdy
and are ihnrnughly satisfied wiih the
condition of the mine and thewayln
which the money Inn heen expended.
They have also employed Mr. Hoy H.
Clarke, a compel enl mining engineer,
in make an examination of the mine.
His report, logetiior with a financial
sluteinenl, will he nniil.'d to the stockholders as siinii as completed, which
will he in ahoul ten days.
In Fohruiiry last ilm assessments
were discontinued, us the company had
entered Into a contract with the Standard  I'yriiic S Iter  Conipany,   to
smelt nut less thnn 2.(01 tons of ore per
month, hut in said contract was a
c'nuse providing Ihal unless a ratlrnad
spur wus Imiil nnd cnmpleled tn the
mine within IK) days the contrncl
would liecinie mill and void. The con-
tract did not stile Ihut the smeller
coinpaiiy should hullil lhe spur, Iml us
sunn ns lhc contiact was signed the
smelter people deposited Ijfi.iVK) and
the Morrison company (jUVi'-O in the
Dank nl Montreal to the credit of the
(), P. tt, company for the purpose of
griding the line, Shortly afler this
the railroad company allowed the
smeller oompany tn draw down I hell
niiinev, This was done without nntl-
lying ihe Mnirisim company, and iu
consequence of this the contract wns
made inoperative, In discontinuing
assessments the directors Ihink Ihey
were justified, ns the contract was an
excellent one for the mine, and we
hud nu reason to ilonht that it would
he carried out hy the smelter company, I
After lhe contract was cancelled it1
then became necessary to again levy,
assessments, as the mine had run in
debt and hnd heen workingsleadily by
the directors advancing money to meet
the bills and payroll. At lhe time of
the Insi assessment the directors hud
gond reuBon to believe that they would
have no trouble to contract wiih lhe
B, 0. Copper Company's smelter, and
lhe two cents was levied to pay nil' indebtedness, lo place ijii.'KK) to the credit of the (!. P, li. conipany fnr the
grading nf lhe spur (which Ihey demanded), and to run the mine Inr two
months, when we hoped to have Ihe
spur in and ready loship. But upon
the recent shipment of Iwo cars of ore
to their smelter for trail Ihey claimed
that our ore carried ion much sulphur
and they could not handle same. We
are just in receipt, however, nf a wire
from this smeller asking us to shin tun
cars more as a furlher test, and il i.s
still possible we can make salisfacton
arrangements for the treatment of oui
ore. The Inst, two assessments will
pay all Indebtedness against lhe mine
nnd carry nn development up to iihnut
I he flrst of October. In the meaniinie
we hope to contract for the output of
the mine to Mime une of lhe smelters
in ihe Boundary country.
We wish to stale fnr the benefit and
prilled Ion of the stockholders thnl lhe
mine is in a posilion today to maintain a large daily tonnage, and as sunn
ns the 8' c nil level is opened up, whi' li
is now being dune und will praclicnlly
he completed in IX) days, we will theii
he in a position (if tht. stockholders
desire) tr sell the properly at a good
figure. We wish to guard the stuck
holders against the weekly bulletins
Kuiilislied hy ihe aforementioned bin
ers, and which tend lo depress the
stock thu it may lie iHiught in fir
their rlienls. Neil her of the broker
age firms in question are in good standing iu their respective cities, and il
Would he well for any stockholders,
shnuld they do any husiness with them,
tn send Iheir slock Ihrough a hank
with draft attached,
Afler the charge of misuse nf the
company's funds was made lhe directors offered to allow the disturbing
element lhe privilege of sending un
exp'il, accountant to the office of the
cnnipany forthe purpose of examining
llm hooks anil lo pay them fur their
lime and all expenses in connection
therewith. This they have refu-eil tu
accept, whieh in iiself is conclusive
'evidence (hat Iheir nnly motive is In
depress the slock.
The annual meeting of the company
will be held on October 1st, and ive
trust all stockholders who are ahle
will he present in person, or he represented by proxy, that they mny see
fnr themselves (he condition of ihe
mine and its finances.
