The Well Known Smelter Man Seeks
New Field for Operations.
The following in reference to tlie
smelter which .lames Ureen proposed
tn build in the Boundary country bus
lately appeared in several of the daily
papers :
Tlie plan which had been under consideration liy James Breen for the
erection of a smeller iii lhe Boundary
country has been brought to an end.
The smelter will not he built. Il is
understood that thn'e was some disa
greenient in regard to tbe enterprise
between Mr, Breen arid bis associates.
Mackenzie & Mann, railway contractors, who are the owners of the Brook
iyn group in the Boundary country.
It was to treat the ores of the Brook-
ly group that the smelter was planned.
Mr, Breen, whose experience with the
Trail and Northport smelters gave him
unusual knowledge of British Odltinibia
copper ores, was retained to carry mil
Ihe enterprise, He i.s back from Toronto and the east, where, after a conference witb the principal backers of
the enterprise, it jvas decided to cancel
all plans,
Mr. Breen, however, is going alie'ld
with plans For building a smelter. He
and David Folheringliaiii, long associated with him in smeltlngenterprises,
md Herman Bellinger, superintendent
uf the Heinze smelters at Butte, have
completed plans for building a smelter
on tlie east coast of Vancouver island,
40 miles north of Victoria, B. 0, It
will have an initial capacity of about
jiOO tons per day. Two stacks will be
constructed at tlie start. Plans will
he made for increasing the capacity as
fast as ore can be secured. Hermann
Bellinger will leave the Heinze smellers at Butte to accept the supervision
of the lnetalliu'iiical department,
Messrs. Breen, Fotheringham and
Bellinger will furnish the funds forthe
enterprise. Work will be Commenced
at once.

C. P. R. Will Have Competition.
According to the following tlie Great
Northern, Norlhern Pacific and Burlington railway systems are to lie consolidated, and Ibal afterwards the consolidated company will acquire lhe
Canadian Northern, a railway now
under eniisl ruction, whicli, when completed, will practically parallel the
Canadian Pacific from Port Arthur to
the   Pacific  coast.     The dispatch   is
dated St.. Paul, Minn., October lllh;
and rends :
''It was disrlosed today thai the
legal department of oneof the inten st
ed roads bad discovered a plan whereby the Burlington, (ireat Northern
and Northern Pacific may he consolidated, operated and brought under
one central management without violating tlie laws of the various stales
which prohibit the consolidation of
competing lines, Frnm tlie results
thus obtained the latest phase of tlie
situation is the formation ofa financial
company to purchase the Burlington
as Ihe parent company, Ihis i nnipany
following with the purchase of the
stock of the (ireat Northern and Northern Pacific. It is declared that lhe
state laws cannot tomb this organi/.a-
tion, as the Burlington is in no sense a
competitor of thn other roads. The
proposed merger, it is said, provides
that the Great Northern stoi k shall be
transferred to the new company at 200
and the Norlhern Pacific at 125. There
is in the opinion of eminent railway
lawyers here do reason why an inde.
pendent conipnny shall not have the
custody of these two stock-., and if this
independent company is the Burlington, reorganized as an individual company, no law can successfully attack
tho arrangement, ll is a technical
evasion of the law, because J. J. Hill
and others would own the independent
company. It is further declared that
ihe plans contemplate the merging of
tlie Canadian Northern, the road which
recently acquired the Northern. Pacific's lines in Manitoba, and which,has
nearly completed a line from Port
Arthur to Winnipeg, and intends tu
build on west lo the Pacific coast,

A nOUNTAIN OF QUARTZ.
Wonderful Discovery by an Old Prospector of Tanana.
Peter Dow, an old prospector, and
party have returned to Dawson after
iwo years in Ihe Tanana country, with
a story of awondeiful quart?,discovery
west of the Tiilvana river, which they
have told to lhe Victoria, B. ('., correspondent of a newspaper. Dow says of
the lind :
"From the summit, look'rj 'A.'xr-i,
the stream, we could see far 111 the dis-
nince a huge range of iiioinnains,higher than any iu the vicinity—immense
rags and bluffs, covered with what
seemed to be a fresh fallen mantle of
snow. Tbey appeared to be aboui one
bundled miles distant, mid the range
seemed fully that extent in lenglh,
For four days we travelled toward the
white mountains, determined to ascertain whether or not that whicli we saw
was white snow or pure white quartz.
Tlie day before we reached Ihe mountains we could see the Character of
them by the Boat which covered the
lied nf the creek. It was fairly cm ei ed
with broken pieces of white porpbyric
quartz, Fnun a distance of several
miles could be seen huge veins of ruse
quartz from ten to thirty feet thick
running along the side of tlie mountain and traceable tor hundreds of
feet.
"This range lies on Ilie noi ill side of
the r'ver and runs from east lowest,
connecting on the north with black
granite and on the east wiihblueslate.
We tested some of tlie quartz and
found traces of gold in every piece
handled with sueh crude tools as wo
had witli us.
"1 believe that the range of white
mountains is one enormous mass of
mineral."

their royal highnesses. Even royally
Is not exempt from poetical persecution. 	
An exchange aptly remarks :—A
newspaper is often censured for what
it publishes, but never a thought of
com mendation is given it for what it
does not publish. Not a week passes
o'er without an editor doing some
kindly deed, either Io tbe individual
or community, by refraining to mention some incident that would show
things up in an unfavorable light. A
newspaper's first duty and care should
be to advance the interest and well-
being of the community iu which it
exists, and the smaller the sphere of
action the more guarded it should be,
People would do well to consider this
and it would tend to make Ihem more
lenient in their judgment of the struggling scribe,
Elsewhere in this issue we publish
a report lhat has appealed in several
daily papers to the effect that James
Breen has decided to build a smelter on
Vancouver Island. The report reads
as if the building of a smelter on Van
couver Island by Breen and his associates would mean that the Dominion
Copper Company would not build a
smelter for the treatment of the ores
from its mines. Tlie fact that Mr.
lin en has severed his connection with
the Doniinion Copper Company and
has decided to build a smelter of his
own elsewhere, will not prevent that
company from going ahead with its
original intention of building a smelter
somewhere in the Boundary country,
and possibly at as early a date as if
Mr. Breen had remained with the
company, His going to tlie coast does
not affect the situation in the least,
other thau thc temporary delay tbat
will naturally take place pending new
arrangements for carrying out the
company's plans in every detail,
Result of a Poker (lame.
The case of the Royal Bank of Can-
ada vs. John M. Harris, manager of
the lteco wine, Sandon, was disposed
of before Mr. Justice Irving last
Thursday and resulted in a victory for
the bank, It was nn aclion ou tbe
part of the bank to recover the amount
of a couple of promissory notes signed
by Harris The bank came into possession of the notes as security for discount made upon a note of a man
named Clarke, The total amount of
the notes, together with inteiest, amounted to $051. The defence to the
action was that tlie notes represented
a portion of a gambling debt. They
were given at the close of a big gambling game in Sandon in November,
181)7, during the progress of whieh
John Harris is said to have lost
close upon $10.0;i0 in cash and Reno
slock. In the game there were Clarke,
.Sam Arthur, a man named Peterson,
uinl anol ber named Hank, and it was
currently reported Ibat they made a
special trip to Sandon for the purpose
of playing with Harris, Afler the
amounts of the game hud ben squared
up Harris claimed to have discovered
that he had been cheated hy the men
with whom he was playing and he
l hereupon took such steps as he could
to stop payment on the cheques that
he had given as well at prevent the
transfer of the Reco stock' By the
judgment of lhe court the Royal Bank
of Canada will recover the sum of $ISfl
wilh inteiest, the amount remaining
due to lhe bank by reason of tho discounting of the note of Clarke as se
curity for wliieh discount the notes of
Harris were hypothecated.
The Wauconda mine has a larger
number of men on the payroll than at
any time in the previous history of tlie
mine.
Two carloads of mill ruachiuery from i
the Rossman company at Minneapolis,
which arrived at Midway tho latter
part of September, has at last been
placed on the ground and will be installed us quickly as possible,
The last carload of machinery for the
mill was shipped from Minneapolis the
Hrst of October and is expected to arrive at any time. The mill building is
completed and some of the machinery
is already in place. This includes the
boiler and engine, mortars, rolls and
some of the amalgamating pans and
settlers,
The machine shop and sampling
building, located at the mouth of lhe
tunnel, was completed some time since.
Since that time the Root hlower has
furnished abundance of pure air tu all
the workings of the mine,
The Uates rock breaker and rolls are
now connected up, and by the begin
ning of this week the sampling mill
will be in full operation. This mill is
a perfect counterpart of the machinery that will be used in the big mill,
and has one third of the capacity of
the amalgamating pans that inv now
being installed. This will enable daily
tests to be made of the ore that is be
ing broken, and a thorough knowledge
obtained at ull times of the value of
the ore.
The rock cut that was necessary for
the laying of the tram from the mine
to the mill is almost completed and
within a few days will be ready for
service.
The reservoir that was constructed
some time ago for the purpose of retaining Ihe waters of Wauconda creek
is a good piece of work and will enable
the null to he supplied with all the requisite water at the lowest stages.
The flume that carries the water from
it to the mill is practically completed
and the water is now running therein.

Ready to do Cross Sectioning.
A press despatch of last Tuesday
from Phoenix says:— For several
weeks Engineer McCarthy and a force
of 15 surveyors, representing the V.,
V. & E. railway, have been stationed
close to Phoenix, expecting orders any
day to start the work of cross sectioning for Contractors Stewart and
Welch, who have heen awarded Ihe
work of grading for the Phoenix
branch of this line from (irand Forks
or some point on the Kettle river.
Many rumors have been afloat as to
the real intentions of the V„ V. k E.
people, one of which was that they had
still in mind reaching Phoenix from
Midway via Boundary creek, Greenwood and 8iimmit camp, ln support
of this the engineers under Mr. McCarthy have broken camp here and
are now engaged in running lines from
Midway to Summit camp. In case
this route is finally adopted, the present survey from Summit camp to
Phoenix would still be used.
The advantage of reaching Phoenix
by Ihis new route is claimed to be that
the mileage from the Ketlle river
would be considerably less, and at lhe
same time by following Boundary
creeu two more smelters could be
reached and the expense of reaching
several more mining camps Would be
greatly lessened,
KAILWAY     INC. WD
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

The Neill Copper Leaching Process,
Thlt process is a treatment Rased on
Uio use of sulphurous ueiil for the re-
covery nf copper frnm the oxide and
cai'lioiniti' ores. These minerals are
reacted upon wiih sulphurous acid
with the formation of cuprous sulphite.
This ; It is not soluble in water, but is
ii lulile iii water containing Sulphurous acid—that is, the leaching solution
mils' bave an excess of the acid in il
over that required to make the function. The copper is precipitated hy
iMvingotf the excess of acid hy heat.
The precipitate is cupro cuprous sulphite and contains 49.1 per cent of
copper, It is a heavy, crystalline coin-
pound, of dink red color, which settles
readily from the solution and can he
washed by decantiitioii, dried and in
dnced to metallic eopper hy fusion on
the hearth nf a reverheralnry furnace,
Very small amounts of nther metals
are dissolved and the prod net is a very
pure copper. In practice the ore is
crushed to puss a twenty-mesh, put in
covered tanks and kept in a state uf
agitation while a current bf sulphurous
acid Irom the generators Is [orbed
through it. The cupper will puss into
solution in from one of four hours.
The solution is drawn off through n
filter press to separate the slimes, The
latter and the sands arc washed once
with water, wliieh is washed over with
the next chatge. This solution in tbe
precipitating tanks is heated with exhaust steam, preoipitattng the copper
salt. The plant can be at ranged to
save nearly all the Bulpblirous acid except, that combining with the copper,
One pound of .sulphur Is required lo
convert four pounds of copper into sulphite, or, with the Iosb from the excess,
one pound ponverts three pounds, The
sulphurous ;*iis can he obtained either
by hurtling pyrite nr sulphur, Roast-
lug a oopper sulphide ore'to an oxide
will provide ample acid for Its own
treatment, A test on a mixture of
copper carbonates and some oxide in a
silicious urn gave llj per cent extraction, The reenvety of the copper by
llio alone etfeols a great saving over
leaching, where Iron is required In ore*

With my winnowing wings,
Waking the gray, ancient wood
From hushed imaginings ;

Or a vagrant sip-,
Lifting nodding hlado or petal
To my cooling lips.
Far from gloom of shadowed moun.

Without passion, without sorrow,
