This ninii is SO per cent hetter than the

per Minister of Mines' report, 1000,

he continued. "It ims heen partly

is under wny to exploit It, on ilu- :i00-
foot I 'vel. If it holds out the mine
will he in position lo give us regular
tonnage. We shall need fully il(M) tons
u day to justify ns in operating our
smeller, mid 100 Ions, whieh is its
maximum capacity, would he better
still. Witl, such low grade ores as
these, running annul $5 to the lon.it
is necessary to work the plant to ils
limit in order to gel economy of operation.
"Tbe smelter IIS it slanils represents
an investment of over $100,00!! by Montreal und Quebec people, who form
the Standard Pyritie Smelting Company, ll needs a few lahor saving devices, Iml otherwise it is ready to be
blown in at any time. Up lo date,
however, it luo.not even been warmed.
The trouble has been tn get custom
ores. The boundary ores generally are
so low grade that they will not pay
t wo profits. A tonnage sufficient lo
work a smeller has not been opened by
any . f tie- mine outside nf tho«e that
have close smelter connections. The
development of lbe Sunset, however,
promises lo put ns in position to start
our plants.
"Why did we cancel uur contract
with the Moirisi.n people to bundle
their ores? Well, the Morrison pre is
a heavy sulphide, carrying ahout 20
per cent sulphur, tt must he tousled,
and it is otherwise bind to smell.
TViu-n i took nvi'.'i'.i- management of
the concern 1 decided lhat the terms
proposed for handling Morrison ore
were not favorable for us, and we
dropped the project, The Morrison,
howevei, bus gome good ore.
''What rate enn be olTeied by smellers in Ilie Boundary no customs ore?
I see lbe Snowshoe pc.pl' in their
prospect us say thai they have assurance of n $11 rule, li was Hrst proposed to make them a $2.1-10 rate by
one nl the I wo Biiuudlll'y smelters in

shoulil say thai tin- cosl of running
most of the ores of the district into u
50 per cent matte is ubout $2 a Ion.
The slug lo-ses are very light. 1 understand thnl the (lieenwooil smelter is
making a copper loss of only .2 or .3
percent in the slug. For that mutter,
at the (.real Fails smelter we rim
along steadily witli slug losses of 25
per eeni, I understand Ihnt the Montana Ore Purchasing Compuny at
Butte, under tbe miiilitgement of H.
C. Bellinger, is making aliout the

Work on Ihe tunnel nnd shaft is to

Bodie is considered one of lbe most
promising properties in 'lie Bodie

Coal on North Fork.
Joseph Wiseman, a prospector,
claims lo have discovered coal on the
North Fork of Kettle river, 00 miles
from Grand Forks. He ret urued there
Insl week, bringing with him specimens
weighing over twenty pounds. Al the
Granby smelter they were pronounced
to be bituminous coal. Wiseman
states thnl he discovered three pnrallel
seams averaging four feet in width.
Un was nut fill nil several weeks ngo by
George A, Fraser and R. R. Gilpin, for
whom he located 1,2.10 acres,

general opinion of those present that
the nnly method to be adopted was
the a«s. s-nient plan, and Mr, Wider
was appointed to ud as temporary
secretary wiih a view i.i corresponding wilh the Spokane und other shareholders. About -BO.OOO shares were
represented and it wns the opinion

The Victoria Post has no doubt Ihal
changes are impending in Ministerial
circles. What opportunities it has for
ascertaining the secrets of the government we do not know, but It se "ins to
have a fairly accurate knowledge of
the situation as it presents itself from
tune to time.   Wc quote in full the
on enls   and   prognostications   as
published iu ils last issue ; "It is veiy
unlikely lhat lhe Hon, .lames Duns*
iiiuir will meet Ihe next session nf the
legislature (piovided ihe ornamental
short se»siou does not lake place) as
Premier of Briiish Ooiumbia, He is
thoroughly disgusted with lhe job.
As bis caliinel goes floundering ubout
from one limit of incompetency lo number, he gets sorer and sorer, and it is
hecomiiig daily more difficult to hold
him In Hue. He does nm understand
Ihe fineness of politics. He docs not
understand why the government, having started out on such a proposition
us special constables lo bulldoze slrik-
ers, should withdraw fiom its position.
The wall of dismay thnl went up from
Dennis Murphy, F. .1. Taylor, John
Houston, and R. F. Oreen curries no
meaning loa mind like bis. He sees
merely weakness nnd cbiciinery, where
Ihe others see what tbey are pleased
to cull policy. And he bus pretty
nearly reached the point nf saying,
'For goodness sake let me go.'
"Tint being sn, the members of the
cabinet, are in a horrible quandary.
They dare not take in an outsider.
Dun-mull' dare not recommend that
an outsider should be culled on to
form a government. That would let
loose the Hoods of desolation. Whal
then is to be done? Pi entice wouldn't
dn. Wells wouldn't do. McBride
wouldn't do. Eherts wouldn't do.
There is only left the sheet anchor of
reaction, J. H. Turner.
"But if Turner goes to England, the
government is gone uny  time that
Dimsiuiiir chooses to jump the traces.
Therefore Turn 'r will not go to England ul present.    Turner is practically Pc-mlTof British Columbia at the
present   time.     Dunsmuir    does   nol
even take ihe trouble to attend meetings  nf the   executive,   und   his discharge nf his duties is quite perfunctory when  he does attend.   Without
Dunsmuir and Turner the government
would not lust five minutes ; without
Dunsmuir and wiih Turner ii would
lasl live nuinllis.    Of course the government   would  have to go on  will,
only live inembers of the cabinet.   To
n a constituency so us to bring an-
minister in  wnuld spell ruin

.   No member of a Turner cab-
mid be elecled in any mainland
|luency, and if elected for some
the  way   small constituency,
■ wnuld In- extremely doubtful,
'-"      .era   enough   would   leave   the
nmentto detent it hopelessly.
"In the   meantime  the  cabinet   is
clinging to Dunsmuir with leeih and
toenails ; but Dunsmuir is not clinging
to them hy a very large majority, aud
is lik- ly at any moment to precipitate
a serious crisis."
Witli n ctisis would probably come
a dissolution,us it is hopeless to look
for stable and progressive government
from a cabinet depending foi lis existence on such combinations ns may he
afforded hy the present legislature.
ll is the worst caricature of a deliberative assembly Ihe province hns ever
lind. It is impossible il can survive
ils full term, and ils demise will U-
something lo rejoice ut. In the Nelson riding there will be a feeling of
profound relief. The election of the
present member was a fluke, and it
bus ever since been a regret. A disso-
lu um wnuld be the most welcome

Fire in Republic.
Repuiimc, Wash., July 90,—What
looked like n serious blnze broke out
about ISO o'clnck this morning in an
unoccupied frame building formerly
tenanted by u man named Rutherford
as Ihe Combination saloon and restaurant. For a while it looked as if
the greater part ii nut all of the town
was doomed, The building, a u ere
shell of a wooden affair, was located
on the east side of Clarke avenue, between Fifth and Sixth streets, uud
burned like tindet. As the place has
lieen empty for three or four months
past, the origin of the fire is a mystery,
unless the woik of an incendiary. The
adjoining buildings, both brick struc
lures, were almost ablaze several
times, and the roof was hadly scorched
on one of them. Thiji, beyond the
total destruction of the Rutherford
building, is the extent of the loss, and
it seems certain that at this hour (2:^0
a.in.I the lire is under complete control.

There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as .soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
not a speculation, it is an investment.

The Mine Is now in a Position to
The ore bodies of the Boundary
country are low grade. To ensure adequate returns from the investment of
capital among Ihe requisites aie cheap
minion, cheap transporlalion and
cheap treatment. The Greenwood and
(iijtnl.y smelters have solved the latter
problem for ill no place in the world
are gold-coppet ores treated at a less
cost than at Ihe two Boundary smelters. But little complaint, has heen
heard regarding the transporlalion
charges of the Canadian Pat-Mc Railway company, and the construction of
Ihe Great Northern into the Boundary
country insures, to.a large extent,
competitive rates, stront* bids for tonnage and minimum charges for hauling the ores from the mines to the
smeller. Mine superintendents, loo,
are rapidly solving the problem of
cheap mining, and from the "glory
holes" at the Knob Hill and the
Mother leotle the ore is quarried at a
very low cost.
The latter mode 'of mining, introduced at the Sunset in Ueitdwuod
camp, has demonstrated that.therein
a large ore body in the property and
also given its dtp so that it can be
more accurately encountered at the
lower levels. Last May Superintendent Harry Johns decided In make a
surface crosscut, or tunnel Ihrough
the hill, beginning 2.1 feet helow the
collar of the mine's working shafl, In
making preparations for thin tunnel an
ore linily was exposed and this was followed through the hill for a distance
of Ho feet. The dip of the ore body is
about 45 degrees westerly. This cross
cut or tunnel came out at (he other
side of the hill iii 275 feet. An upraise
was untile from about the centre of the
tunnel to the surface, a distance of 81)
feel, after 80 feet this upraise caught
the ote body and continued in ore to
the surface. Taking this ore hody
front the tunnel lo the surface Mr.
Johns llgures about 200.000 tons of shipping ore, that can be quarried out
easily, alfording an output of IVKI tons
a day while It lasts. Mr. Johns is at
present getting this body into shape
nml in a short lime will make arrangements to open the same body in the
lower levels,
This can he done from the four and a
half by Ave double compartment shaft
which is down to the 400 fool level. At
the 200 foot, level a crosscut has been
rim north 680feel and smith west 250
feet. The ore body was tapped in Ihis
level 4011 feet from the shaft hut has
not yet been explored. Seventy-live
tons of Ihis ore were shipped to the
Trail smelter last year,  the returns
lieing $10 in gold, the smelter allowing
nothing for copper values. Itis understood that sueh arrangements can In*
made with Ihe local smelters as will
allow copper values, increasing the
value of the nre to $20 a ton. The ore
between the surface tunnel and the
apex of the hill is low grade, hut with
cheap mining aud present rates for
treatment will allow a margin of pro
Ht. At the 100 foot level a drift was
run to connect wilh the old tunnel in
which is a 00 foot winze about 80 feet
from its mouth. A station has been
cut at the .100 foot level and cross cut
started. But little wmk has recently
been done on the Crown Silver belonging tn the same company. A quarry
has been opened on this property,
showing gond nre,
The mine is in gond shape to hloek
out the ore bodies on (he lower levels.
The plant consists of a 20 drill com
pressor, an 80 horse power hoist, and
Iwo 80 horse power lioilcrs. Thirty-
live men ure at present employed on
the property.
The Sunset, Crown Silver and other
adjoining claims are owned by the
Montreal k Boston Copper company,
the principal shareholders being Montreal and Boston capitalists. They are
fortunate iu having an eflleienl supei-
inlendent in Harry Johns, win. has
everything in ship shape and who will
from all appearances soon demonstrate
that his judgment was not at fault
when he maintained that the Sunset
.vould yet make a big mine.—Green

Which Is the Best.
It is told of a certain scholar and
literary man, who wns putted up with
self conceit, that, as he was lieing
rowed across a lake, somewhere in
Europe, he fell into conversation wilh
Ihe boatman, and said: 'Have you
ever studied philosophy? When lhe
answer came 'No,' he said: 'Then a
quarter of your life is lost.' Then he
said : 'Did you ever study science f
The answer being the same, he replied:
'Then anot her quarter of it is Inst. Du
you know anything ahout art?' 'No.'
'Well, then, another quarter of your
life is gone.' Just then a violent squall
struct the boat, and I he boatman turn
edand said: 'Sir, can you swim?
'No,'came the answer. 'Well, then,'
the boat iiiiui replied, 'the whole of
your life is lost.'
