where everything is kept that is needed in the mining business.
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

Inowi,
Tbe Macdonald Chemistry ud
Mining Building of the
McGill University.
Nearly all of the residents Id the
Boundary district are more or less interested in mining snd anything that
pertains to it. This is but natural
since upon the mining industry de
pendstbe future of this district It
follows, therefore, tbat most visitors to
Montreal from the Boundary country
are pleased to bave an opportunity of
visiting the mining and metallurgical
laboratories of the McGill University
and of then* learning from the courteous and enthusiastic Macdonald Professor of Mining and Metallurgy something of tbe capabilities and facilities
this branch of the university possesses for special instruction in this—
from a British Columbia poiut of view
—very
Important Field of Knowledge
Thanks to the kindness of Capt, R. 0.
Adams, of Montreal, the writerrecent*
ly had tbe pleasure of meeting the
Profeswr, Dr. J. Bonsall Porter-
whose affixes are: E.M., A. M„ Ph. D.
(Col. Univ., N. Y.), M. I. C. E„M.Cau.
Soc. C. £— and of ascertaining from
bim something of the work of the
university in this direction.
It may be premised that tbe McGill
University was the flrst university in
Canada to make mining a subject of
instruction. Twenty seven years ago
Dr. Harrington, who is still actively
associated with the university, now in
the capacity of Greenshields Professor
of Chemistry and Mineralogy, Lecturer
in Assaying, and Director of Chemistry and Mining Building, announced a
series ot lectures oa metallurgy
and mining. The following session
saw the graduation of the Snt McGill
men in this course. Since then the,work
has l-een kept up without a break, first
by Dr. Harrington, then, after many
years hy Mr. W. A. Carlyle, Ma. E.,
(who wss afterwards Provincial Mineralogist for British Columbia); tben by
Mr, J. E. Hj,itlii,:,n and now by Dr.
Porter.   The
Ordinary Mining Course
at McGill consists of preparatory scientific work in general engineering, extending over two years, followed by
special advanced work in mining,
geology, metallurgy (including assaying), mineralogy, surveying, etc. In
addition the students are required to
spend two months at actual field sur
veying and six weeks at practical mining, each summer, these practical
studies comprising the chief work of
what are known as the summer schools.
Thus the usual terms at the university
are added to, and ;in this way practically the whole of what would other
wise he the summer vacation is occupied, partly by surveying and mining
and partly by home study. These
.summer schools involve a visit of
several weeks' duration to some mining
district, the itinerary of which bas
been flrst arranged by the professor.
In 1888 the "summer school" students
were taken to some large coal and gold
mines in Nova Scotia and last summer
to the anthracite region of Pennayl
vania and the great iron and steel
works near Philadelphia and New
York. The itinerary for the summer
of 1900 has not yet been arranged, but
it has been suggested tbat next years'
practical field lessons shall be given at
British Columbia mines. Whether
this province will be then visited or
not will depend on circumstances yet
to lie considered.
In 1886 Mr.-uow Sir-W.C.Macdonald, of Montreal, already the greatest
of McGill benefactors, foresaw the
present rapid development of the West,
and begun to lay plans to proviile
what is now understood to be the most
complete mining and metallurgical
establishment possessed hy any university in the world. In December
1898 the completed
Macdonald Chemistry and Mining
Building -
of theUfBOUI University waa formerly
opened. The Mining and Metallurgical
lahoratariea, situate in the lower part
of the structure, are fully equipped*
They are thus described in tbe McGill
calendar for 1880*1900.
These laboratories, with the leclure
rooms nnd lihrary, the professor's office,
•nd room* for appratus, supple „nd
fuel, are very conveniently arranged
individually and wilb regard to une
another, and occupy the lower part of
the main huilding and ihe whole of
Initb wings. The total fino.- space coy.
ered is approximately 15,000 square
feet, divided as follows:-
Mining and Ore-Divssing Lahora*
tory, or Milling Room, 3,500 square
feel: Metallurgical Laboratory, or Furnace rioom 3,000 square feet; Assay
Lahoiatnry, 2,500 square feet; Wet
Assaying Rooms, 500 square feet; Technical Lecture Room, 750 square feel ;
Library and Drawing Room, 750 square
feet; Offices, Stores and so fori h, 4,000
square feet,
The two rooms Hrst mentioned are
of great size, and Jare ilie chief lalwra*
tories of the department. In these it
impossible to take anyoies of gold,
silver, copper or lead iu the condition
in which they come from the mines,
aod to treal them from beginning lo
end precisely as they are treated in
the ore-dressing works and smelting plants of tbe 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 nidiuary ore-dressing establishment or smelter is
designed to treal the ores of only one
district and sometimes of only one
part ofa district. The UniversityLaho.
raiories must of course lie adopted lo
all ores now found or likely to be found
in tbe Dominion, and therefore contain
a great numher of pieces of appratus
lhan are to tie found in one commercial
establishment, although probably no
•:ase will come up when all uf these
machines will be used fm any one lest.
The nUling.Room
is equipped with a complete working
plant, capable of treating, if necessary,
10 to 20 Ions of ore per dny, the chief
pieces of appratus heing;—Rock Crush*
ers of three kiods ("Blake," "Dodge"
and "Comet"), lo break the large pieces of ore to small size. Stamp mills
of SU0 and 950II* , respectively, for the
fine crushing and amalgamating of
gold ores. Huntington mill, fur crushing and amalgamating, Rolls, both
coa**e and Hne, to reduce ores to powder when necessary. Trommels and
sieves for sizing I be crushed ores. Adjustable Harlz, Collom and slide jigs,
with 2aud 4 compartments.for concentrating minerals hy gravity, Revolving, bumping, and Ml tables. Fnie
vauner, Wilfley table, etc., for separating valuable minerals contained iu Une
sands and crushed rock. Pla'.es, |Htns
and barrels for amalgamating gold and
silver ores. Spitzkasieu, spiulutteu,
magnetic separators, coal washers,
huddles and various olher special pieces of ore-dressing appratus.
The machinery above mentioned is
not in minature; it is of full size, such
as the graduates will afterwards find
in use in working establishments, and
is provided wiih hydraulic lift. Mt
and bucket elevators, hand trucks, elc,
eie. It is, however, so arranged tbat
each piece can lie worked hy itself, and
taken apart aud cleaned up; and such
of the larger pieces as cannot be used
forsmall quantities of material are
duplicated in minature by working
models for handling small lots of
material. The lahoratory, while thus
adapted to illustrate continuous work
on a comparatively large scale, is even
more peifectly det-igned for experimental work on as small a scale as is
compatahle 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
the machines lo lie operated. The
department is equipped wilh tbe most
' e—      ..i..„,.;„.,l
pproved appratus for electrical
measurements, and is thus able to
make constant and accurate determinations of tbe amount of power used
by each machine, and for any especial
condition of use.
The Metallurgical Laboratory
is fitted with a water-jacket blast-furnace, 21 ins. inside diameter, wilh lhe
necessary blaKt appratus for smelting
lead and copper; also with a band
reverheratory furnace, a Bruckner-
cylinder furnace, an English cupel la-
tion.furni'e,   and   several   crucible
furnaces.
Il has also a lead-lined chlorinatinn
barrel for high pressures, with filter
press, air pump, etc., and seveial small
vats, barrels, etc., for the chlorinatinn
and leaching of silver and other on s, also both large and small cyanide extrac-

"Outing" furnishes a most interest
ing sketch ofa moose limit of which
the following is an excerpt '.—
"A hunt In the Maine woods ; limit
of time,   two   weeks; sole object, a
moose.   The leaves have fallen, the
undergrowth    has become comparatively clear, and the moose have left
the lakes and   streams and sought
shelter in the more thickly wooded
hills and ranges.   The rutting season
is over, and nil the fight has left the
hull, who busies himself In selecting a
"yard," some well protected hillside,
where the tender tops of the moose-
wood and maple will furnish him food
during the heavy snows.   The sportsman in quest of moose in Maine-arrives
at the little station nearest the bunting
region, puts up at the country hotel,
listens to stories of the heads carried
out of the woods, and is assured by his
guide of the   plenlifulness of game.
The next- morning— what joy I   The
ground is covered with snow, soft and
velvety, four or five inches.   Just the
right depth, not too  much  for fast
travelling, yet just enough to cushion
the leaves and deaden one's footfalls.
The ln,liter, with    whatever  rifle he
fancies, and the guide with bis pack
make an early stall.   Three or four
miles over one range, with h   <• and
there a view of a distant  lake,  or u
glimpse of a long stretch  of crimson
and   hlue hills, down into a swamp,
across  treacherous brooks, when lol
moose-tracks.   Immediately the hunter's spirits mount hiuli his strength is
doubled,  and every sense is on tlie
alert.   The guide examines the track
critically . it niigh* he a young bull.
At nny rate, it will probably lead to a
yard or to other moose to for the next
three or four hours the trail is followed
through bogs, over fallen treetops and
under the overhanging boughs, which
the guide scrutinizes closely.    Bark
freshly peeled from young lives, bushes
bent over, and the fresh tracks the
guide decides were mode during  the
early morning.    Tlure are three in
the hen), big trucks, and frnm the hark
scraped off the trees, there is evidently
a bull amongst them.   The trails cross
and   wonder about   aimlessly.    The
beasts are jxissilily in the near neighborhood.   Now great caution must In-
observed.   A lluger is wetted and held
up to Hnd the a ,ci  position of the
wind.   Taking note of the general ap
pe.iiiinc'e nf the sum),hiding hills and
valleys, the guide lends the sportsman
cautiously lo leeward of a certain narrow little valley, wliere they again discover the  trail,   which,  fortunately,
leads up the  valley   und  aguiust the
wind.   Creeping-, half crawling, they
cautiously select a place for euch step.
The signs grow fresher every uiiuute,
and the hunters grow more alert and
careful.   Just as they reach the top of
a little rise, a black object is seen to
iniivt amongst the growth some hundred yj'lils distant.   Crouch low and he
ready.   A   moment  later the object
turns, and presents a hroodside showing a fine pair of horns.   Now, quick
hut take careful aim.   Bnngl   once,
I wice.   Shoot again as he runs—three,
four—yea,  more times if necessary.
The old hull stops mid weakens, then,
staggering, falls heavily in the ground,
dead.   A moment to realize that   he
has actually killed his moose, und then
the triumphant hunter pruduces a flask
that he and his guide may di ink  to
their success, and   to   euch   other's
health- -and to everybody else's good
health.   They then till their pipes and
sit down to enjoy a little of tliul calm
contentment that follows the complete
and successful accomplishment nf one's
most cherished desires,   The next day
is spent iu 'blazing' and 'swamping
out' a way by which the  moose may
lie hauled out, and after much labor
and difficult driving, he is hauled InUi
cump on u sled."
A1 brief History of Midway aod
a Summary of its Advantages.
A Picturesque Townsite Affording
Special  Inducements  for
Business and Residence
Purposes.
It is very generally admitted that
Midway is the best natural site for a
town in Hie Boundary district. It was
formerly known as Eholt's, after the
original pre-emptor of the land. It
was purchased from Mr. L. Kholt in
1»)2 by Capt. R. C. Adams, of Montreal,  P.  Q„ an.', several  associates,
The original townsite was platted in
IStti by Messrs. Kirk k Ritchie, provincial land surveyors, now of Rossland. The town was named Boundary
City, but as another place had already
been similarly named a new name
had tobe found for Iliis town before
registration could he seemed. Opt,
Adams eventually decided upon the
name of Midway for lhe reason ihnt j
the lown is situate about midway in
British Ooiumbia between the Rocky
Mountains and I lie I'acilic Ocean. The
flrst Townsite Agent was the late Mr,
H. P. Pnliiiciston and the first sale of
lota was made in ISM in Mr, Johui
Douglas, who si ill resides in the lown.
A Picturesque Townsite.
Midway certainly is a most picturesque and beautiful site for n town.
Occupying a broad, level plain at the
confluence of Boundary Cieek with
Keitle Biver and at the meeting place
of ihree valleys, with lhe intervening
mountains rising around ii, it commands general admiration. But Ihe
advantages that attach In its singularly
favorable local inn are nol scenic alone,
for, lyimr in the nnly natural pass
tlirough the mountains east und west
f.u a long distance, it appears destined
to liecome an important poinl nu lhe
chief highway through the districl.
Here meel three main wagon roads
which come in from the Okanagan
country and Cump McKinney on the
west, Ihe mining camps ,,f the Colville
Indian Reservation on the smith, and
lbe extensive aiea of mineral bearing
country comprising the Boundary |
Creek district^ lying immediately lo the j
north, -Here, ion, f,,r some time will
be Ihe terminus uf the Columbia and
Western railway now nearlyconipleted
and which will give rail connection
wilh the Knutetiny and thence northwards to Ihe ('. P. R. iiuiiii line nr cast-
wards via the Crow's Nest railroad.
And when competing railways shall
come in it will be here that a riuiil from
Spokane via Hep'iidic and another
froni lhe tinluu liia River up iheAineri-
can Okanogan via the Palmer Mountain and Meyets Creek mining districts,
will junction, These important natural adv-uilages therefore appear to
warrant lhe expectation that when
trade uud population shall have
adapt cl themselves lo more permanent ]
conditions than now prevail Midway
will become.
