A Description of the New Plant at
Boundary Palls.
The construction of the pytitic smelter a few miles east of here on Boundary creek is progressing rapidly, All
the hrlck and masonry work is about
completed and Ihe hig limbers for the
main huilding are being put up so that
one gels an idea of the importance of
the undertaking that the Standard
Pyritie Smelting Co., limited, has embarked in. Last Tuesday, with Andrew Laidlaw, the managing director,
tbe site was visited. A force of over
40 men under the foreinauship of Hum
Young is at work on the superstructure
of tbe smelter.
The site secured for lhe pyritie smel.
ter is an ideal one. It comprises almut
HO acres of land on the weal side of
Uouudarv creek. The smelter in located on three natural benches, just
above Boundary Kails, and has a frontage on the creek of half a mile, A
valuable feature of the site is that it
includes a number of acres of the finest
limernck to Iw found anywhere in the
district. It can be quarried and laid
down in the hins for less than SO cents
per tou. A flume one mile long brings
the water from a datn to a 10,000gallon
tank, so there will always he an ine-t-
hanstible supply for uses of the smelter
in tbe water jackets and for granulating the slag. There is ample room to
the easl andeouihfordumpingthe slag.
Railroad facilities are provided by the
Columbiu& Western branch of the Canadian Pacific, which runs through the
site. Sidetracks and spurs which can
he built at a nominal expense for grading have already heen staked by a Canadian Pacific railway engineer. Tbe
main wagon road between Greenwood
and Midway also passes through tbe
property, so il is accessible for both
wagon nnd railway.
Nearing completion is the assay oflice, a frame building 20 by 24 feet iu
size, situated ut tbe north end of the
site, A. B. C. Davis it the company's
assayer and metallurgist. He has bad
many years' experience in pyritie
smelting, having been connected wilh
the Cleopatra smelter at Ouray, Col. ;
the. Beunu Vista S. k R. Oo, and the
Bust on Gold-Copper Smelting Co. at
Leadville, Col. He has already taken
np Iiis duties at the smelter.
Immediately In front of the assay of-
lii e is ihe general business office. It
is a substantial two story structure 23
liy 88 feet in size, containing three
large offices and five other rooms,
Other outbuildings consist of stables,
carpenter and blacksmith shops, supply warehouse, elc.
The smelter proper is all under one
roof. The outside dimensions of the
building ate 182 feet length by 120 feet
width. From the charge floor to thn
roof is (il feet und from the furnace
floor nearly 80 feet. The construction
of the building will require aliout 400,-
000 feet of timber. Mut>t of the heavy
timbers and truss work are in place.
On tlie west side of the structure is
located thenamplingdepai ttiienl.   The
machinery for the department consists
of tno 80 and two 48 inch automatic
samplers, one 7 hy 10 inch Blake crusher, two sets 12 by 20 inch rolls and two
belt elevators.   East  of this department are located the bins for sample
discard.    Next comes    two parallel
rows of ore storage hins, each hin be*
liu* if; •■ • m '• ". wi h --; tht   'i i :i"li
."■. ■   in th ■   . -    gii.ii ace lime aim
coke storage bins.   Ali thi se hins are
practically in the center of the huild
iug, and overhead, crossing the  ore
bin.- are double rows of railway track.
N'exl cmie- the furnace department,
wilh a floor running 60 feel east from
the  retaining wall  and  140 feet in
length.   The walls for the dusl.flne are
completed, as is also the concrete hase
for hoih the stuck und furnace,   Tbe
inn and  cold  blast  pyritie  smelting
furnace to be installed here will he 40
by HH inches  inside nt tuyer lines,
having exactly the Same cubic capacity
as thnse in uie at the Granhy smeller.
The metal smokestack when in place
will ri*e 112 vet. above  its base.    Its
diameter is 9 feet H inches.
In lhe southeast corner of the furnace department will be located a No.
7 llonniaville blower and a 75-horse
power engine for it, two 80-horse
power engines for operating tbe sampling works. The Iwo boiler smokestacks will he of 28 inch diameter hy
00 feet in height.
From the mainline of the Columbia
IV Western railway three sidetracks
«ill he built. The first will be a sup.
ply truck, running parallel with the
main line fot al'out 1501 feet. The
x track to convey on. tn tlie smelter will
be IdOO feet long, and within :!oOt'e.*t of
the smelter will form n V running two
parallel trucks into the liullding over
the ore hins. In the south end a spur
will be put in to the furnace floor for
coal, The transportation facilities are
admirably urranged for the economical
handling of ore and other material,
Tlm smelting plant, manufactured
by the Denver Engioeiring Works Oo.

was given on June 21, is en route, and
on its arrival will he quickly assembled,
•o that hy the end of  the year the
start operations,    ino  mi.......  (
used ia what is known as the Standard new combined hot and cold blast
pyritie furnace. Tliis furnace allows a
high per cent of silica aud utilizes I be
waste heat of the fiirnmo to produce
the hot blast, thereby largely decreasing the cost of smelting the ores. In
other words, lu tbis system of smelt
ing, the expense of roasting ores (driving otf the sulphur) which is practiced
in thu majority of smelting works, and
which often exceeds half the cost ol
smelting, disappears entirely, for this
very sulphur Ib used as a prime fucloi
in generating the heal necessary tn
carry on the smelting, and in soon
cases sulphide ores may be smelted for
less than what it costs to roast them
by hand labor under the old system.
Tbe Standard Pyritie Smelting Co.,
Ltd,, is a subsidiary nf the Standard
Copper Co.,'Ltd, This last company
has its head oflice in Quebec city, Quebec, and its registered office at Greenwood. The Standard Copper Oo, is

Development work on the Reming-
lon adjoining the R. Bell mine, Summit camp, has lieen commenced.
The Granhy smelter continues to
hip thirty tons of matte daily to
New York. Thebest treatmentrecottl
to date is 7«7 tons in one day. Thia
howing is remarkable, as the guaranteed capacity of the plant is 500 tons
The government trail hetween Grand
Forks and Franklin camp on the Easl
Fork of lhe Kettle river has just been
completed, Capt. W. H. Denshrowe
has charge of the work. He reports
that the trail is first class in every
respect and will solve Ihe question of
the cheap transportation of supplies,
The gradient is an easy one. Wilb
eight of his men he covered forty-four
miles on the homeward trip, on fool,
in one day. He considers Franklin
camp a low grade camp with a few
properties yielding high values in copper, gold and silver. Capt, Denshrowe
says it will he an easy matter to extend a railway to the camp. He
speaks of the limber wealth up the
river us very valuable.
A pleasing feature of the meeting
was the announcement that the last
car-load shipment of 22 tons, gave a
net return of $30,20 per ton. This ore
came from a new discovery, known as
the No. 2 north lead, at Ihe 300-foot
level. When the reorganization goes
into effect something like $10,000 will
he available for immediate use and if
it is thought advisable to levy Ihe
balance at the rate of half a cent per
month, $5,000 per month for the next
eight months will lie procurable. That
is from an assessment of one million
shares, tn this must lie added tho proceeds of the sale of the additional
quartet of a million shares in the
treasury, This should, with the development nnd exploration work already done, lie sufficient, it Is thought
to prove the value of the property.
Friday evening at the office of tho
Winnipeg Mining ft Smelting Co. at
the  Winnipeg  mine  in   Wellington
camp, a meeting of Ihe stockholders
was held with a view  to ihe re-construction of tbe company, pursuant lo
notice,    Rossland,    Greenwood  and
Phoenix  shareholders were   present
and about eight-tenths of the capitalization was represented.   Mr. Richard
Plowman  the secretary, represented
personal stock uiul proxies for eastern
shareholders    for     750,000     shares
ont   of   the    1,000,000.    The    new
company to lie known us Ihe  Winnipeg Mines, Ltd., will have a capital of
$1,250,000 divided into shutes of tbe
par values of $1,00 fully paid up to the
extent of 95 cents per share.   It will
allot to the shareholders of the old
company share for share, and place
the balance of the 260,000 shares in the
treasury,    The meeting wae unanimous, resolutions being passed to effect
are-organization, on Ihis basis.  The
difference of five cents will he paid as

Marcus Daly one of the lending mine
owners of the world died in his apartments in the Hotel Netherlands New
York last   Monday   morning.    Sis
weeks ago It. was known thnt lie rnultl
not posslhly recover, Init. with a grim
determination he hns hung on to IiIn
•lender threads of existence.   He sul-
fured from dilation of the heart, and
and Bright'*  disease.   While his lire
was slowly eliding itwity one of the
llgures mosl frequently seen aliout the
corridors of the Netherlands hotel, nt
which be lay, was VV. A, Clark, whn
contested a seal iu the United States
minute as a repieseiitative of Mtintuiui.
Thus to the very end the lives nf these
two men were thrown inlu sharp con-
trast.   The presence of Senator Clark
under tbe same roof that sheltered
Mr. Daly serves lo recall lhe relentless
warfare that these two men waged
each against thu  other for almost a
score of years.
Montana's recent history has lieen
largely the history nf the (.'lark Daly
feud. The scars left try the strife are
tn he found in the state from Knit As-
sitiilioine clear across to Port Missoula,
Yet these two giants of finance were
•tone lime close personal friends untl
business aasnilates,
It was in 18HD thnl Man-its Daly
sold his interest in the Alice mine, und,
witb Clark, purchased a large tenet ot
land, on which it tlie now located the
Anaconda copper properties. Clark
was even then a wealthy iiiiui, and
while Daly stayed at. home In plan
f*reat improvements and to manage
the properly, Clark went lu Pans on
pleasure bent,
He returned to Montana, to find that
Daly had gone far ahead with the
work of iniproveinenl wit boul consult
ing him. Clark was diss.iti-.Heil, and
demanded that I) iiy either buy nr Mil,
Daly was embarrassed somewhat
financially, Imt succeeded in raising
the sum demanded liy Clark and ink
over his interest. Since then he hns
taken $SMim,U«l out of the Anaconda
min*»—a fact «huh has not made his
old-time associate happv.
Ont of this transaction has grown h
feud which has attract.d more thnn
Procrastination is the thief of time.
Do not put off until to-morrow what
you can do to-day. Now that times
are improving throughout the Boundary Country in general, and in Midway
in particular, the number of lot sales is

nounoed thai the batobet wns buried.
If he told the iruth, the bloody weapon was resurrected hefura election
day. In Daly's strongholds Chirk was
l(t«rally cut otf the ticket and his Ke-
publicau opponent was cisilv successful.
When Montana became a state, a
dual legislature was nigani'/.ed. Clark

Again in INUI, when the coveted seal
lu the senate seemed within the g.nsp
ot Clark, the relentless Hgnre of Marcus Daly loomed up, and Ihe prize was
once  more snatched  from  the  oui
stretched hand.   In the MonUnn leg
Islature that year there were thirty-
live Democrats and thirty three  It"
publicans.   Clark was the caucus noni-
linee of hisparty. nine
I Democrats, and he refused to permit
them to abide by the derision of thc
caucus.   He wns appealed lo hy Gorman, Whitney and  Hi ice to lift his
hand in order lhat another seal in the
senate might he tilled hy a Democrat
Daly's reply Was :   "A Democrat, yes,
Clark, never 1"
Then came the Iml lie for senate capi
tal. The cities that coveted the prizt
were Helena, Unite City, Missoula,
Bowman and the despised Anaconda,
It waa supposed thai Helens and Unite
would tight it out. Clark lives in Butte
and spent his cash liberally for his
home town. When the votes were
counted Helena led and Anaconda was
second. Then Olurk obtained revenge
by throwing bis strength tn Helena,
which finally won.
Then camo the third light, for the
senatorsbip.   Clark won, hut it wns an
empty Victory.   Daly curried the con
test 10 Washington and Clark was
unseated after a sensational hearing
that lasted practically all of the last
session.   When before ihe senate as a
witness  Marcus  Daly acknowledged
that he had oontrlhuted $£».<«> to help
defeat Clark. "But," lie added, "I have
not   Ihe  slightest   personal   feeling
against Mr. Clark or lhe mouthers ot
his family, and any statement of tht
kind Is a villainous lie."
