The next event, and one that was
was watched very closely,especially by
local horsemen, was the trotting race,
All ihe horses that entered, with the
exception of one lhat was from Greenwood, were local horses. In Ihe Hist
heat Nellie, belonging to J. Keightley,
came in ahead, wiih lieu, belonging to
.1. McNicol, a close second. The next
heat reversed Ihe order of things, Ben

the (ireenwood station waiting room
and put llieiu inin liox cars, and were
willing to ride iu this novel way rather
than miss the celebration. Others
who did not care lo ride io ihis primitive method, hired rigs and drove
down.
Ki nm the lime Ilie train arrived
until the visitors had reached the
grounds Ibo band played Incessantly,
Although every rig In town was
pressed into service for Inking tlie
visitors from lhe train to ihe grounds,
the aceninmnil.ition was entirely in-
iideipiate, and although the station is
fully half a mile from lhe grounds,
lhc large crowd reached Ihe entire
distance, in fact the large townsite of
Midway was practically covered with
people. They seemed to pour into the
lown from all directions,
Consideralile lime was lost froni lhe

one half mile was covered in a remark

was neglected. A number of booths
on Iheginund provided lemonade, ice
cream and served lunches, and a good
business was done.
A word of praise is due to the .Midway band, who discoursed sweet
music throughout the day, which entertained thevvisltors between Ilie different evenis and instead of innking
the moments nf waiting seem tedious,
they passed all too soon.
The commit toe wjis very fortunate
in obtaining the services of Lieutenant
Leckie, .1. W. II. Smythe n nl .1. W.
Nelson of Greenwood, as judges iu lbe
horse races. Their decisions were fair
and.gave.satisfaction, No kirks were
registered which shows dearly lhat
no horses were favored. Tbe judges
are to be complimented on Ibe way
Iheir decisions met 'villisuch universal
favor, every one who knows anything

itis a ditllcull position lo Mil io ihe
satisfaction of all.
Another very iniportn.nl and difficult

The following information regarding
the mining industry in the Boundary
country wns prepared by 13, Jacobs
and appeared in the Oreenwood Boiud
of Trade Report, which was issued
recently j
In reviewing Ihe prospects and condition of the mining industry of tbe
Hoiindary district  it  is necessary  to
direct attention to several facts lending lo show that a comparison with
I he older and hetter developed mining
districts would not be fair to the form
er unless due allowance were made for
the attendant, circumstances unfavor
able to it.   The lack of railway transportation facilities prior to last yenr
Involved heavy and almost, prohibitory
freight charges on machinery, plant,
material   and   mine  stores.    Power
plants in use at its mines are, except in
four or live instances, consequently nf
comparatively small capacity and de
velopment. work has  necessarily been
slow, ihe more so since the data npces
snry for lhe advantageous working of
i lie mines can not he so speedily obtained where big bodies of generally
nv grade ore have to be opened up.
Then whilst the branch railway lines
lo several of th" principal mines have
hen completed, the smelter at. Green
wood has only lately been put in oper
atlon.    Il  has though  proved a dis
tinct success, as, Ion, hns thn tat Grand

progress, and a copper converter is  lo

new furnaces.   Further,  Ihe distiici
has not yet, except in a few instances,
had lhe benelit of the expenditure of
any considerable amount of outside
capital.   So ii has resulted that, with
only a limited amount nf capital avail
able,  actual mining operation* have
been much restricted,  whilst Ihe previous absence of suitable transporta
tion and smelting facilities greatly retarded  progress.    The prospects for
early improvement are, however, very
encouraging.     With    transposition
and ore reduction needs largely pro
vided for, several of the mines setiled
down upon a producing basis and so
encouraging the further expendilure
of capiiiil for their adequate equipment
and more extensive operation, the contemplated early resumption  of work
on properlies thai  have been closed
down and the general local experience
that values improve with  depth, the
outlook is becoming increasingly satisfactory,
Within a radius of about eight miles
of G"cenwoo(l there are a dozen mining camps, in each of which numerous
mineral claims have been locaied. Of
these camps ihere aie five that, as n
result of the comparatively large
amount of development work done iu
Ihem, have coin" into prominence,
These are Deadwood, Greenwood (also
known as Phoenix), Summit, Welling
ton andOntial (alsoknown asWhite's)
camps. Mosl of the ore shipped from
the dislrict mines has so far heen the
product of the three first named
cainns, Greenwood camp having a
long lead in this connection, wiih
Summil camp next and Deadwood
camp third on ' he IM, The positions
of lhe Ial ter two are, however, likely
to soon be reversed, for Ihe daily output nf Deadwood camp is now more
than twice as large as that of Summit
camp, Wellington and Central camps
hnve both i-ased shipping for the
lime, nor does il. appear as if tbey will
again send out any considerable quantity nf urn for some, time fo come.
With the single exception of the No. 7,
iu Central camp, there does not seem
to be any properly in either of'lhes'
two camps likely tn maintain regular
shipments of ore during the ensuing
Slimmer, On the ol her hand it is very
probable thai, before the snow flies
this year lhe output of Greenwood
camp alone will be larger than the
present tolal tonnage of the whole of
tin- Rnssiand mines, nml that both
Dead wood nnd Summit camps will respectively Increase (heir output.

V,. P, Jennings read a paper before
thc Canadian Mining Institute at ihe
lust meeting on Leaching Copper Ores
hy Sulphurous Acid, and among oilier
things he snid :
The writer has hud occasion in tlie
course of his professional work to investigate a unique process of leaching
copper ores hy the use of sulphurous
acid, which has been patented in the
United States by James W. Neill of
Salt Ijike Oity, t'lah. The process,
while yet in the experimental stage,
bus features whicli will uinke it nf interest tn members having deposits of
ropper ore remote from transpnrtal ion,
fuel and fluxes.
The native oxides and carbonates of
copper are readily soluble in sulphurous acid wiili the formation of cuprous
sulphite. This salt is Insoluble in
Water, hut soluble in water containing
sulphurous acid, from which the copper can he preclpl'aled by driving otf
excess of sulphurous acid hy licit. The
precipitate is 0U| rntli sulphide and
contains 40.1 percent of copper.   This
salt is a heavy crystalline compound of
a dark red color, which settles readily
lii,in lhe solution and can he washed
by dfcaiiLitlinii, dried uud reduced to
metallic copper hy fu-ing on the
hearth of a reverberatory  furnace,
The process is suitable both foi sul
pliide and oxidized ores, the former
being Hrsl rousted to expel lhe sul
phur and convert ibe copper com
piiunils into oxides, us sulphurous
acid does mil attack sulphides. The
ideal ore is one currying oxides or cut-
donates of copper iu u silicious giiiigue;
lime and magnesia ure objectionable,
as they dissolve In sulphutousacid uml,
while they do not materially interfere
wiih the reactions, ihey consume a
certain amount, of sulphur aud su increase I he enst of I he process.
In practice the ore is crushed to pass
a '*l mesh screen, placed in covered
tanks tilled with water containing sulphurous acid and kept in a state of
agitation liy forcing a current of sulphurous acid from the gas generators
through the solution : this tilings euch
pal tide of ore in contact with Ihe acid
and also keeps Ihe water saturated
with sulphurous acid gas. All the
copper will pass into solution in from
I to I hours, depending on the physical
condition of lhe ore.
The charge is now drawn into a settling tank, lhe sands allowed to settle
for a few mOUIOIItS, when the solution,
which tarries more or less slimes, is
decanted into a lllter press that separates the solution und precipitating the
copper   us    flipro cuprous     sulphite,
wl luh settles rapidly to lhe bottom of
is run into another tank while siill
hot aud freed from the small amount
of copper thut is in solution as sulphate
by means of a little lime, The precipitates are drii d and smelted to fine copper. The piant can he so arranged
lhat nearly all lhe sulphurous acid except that combined with the copper
can l>e saved and used again.
One pound of sulphur is required to
convert I pounds of copper into sulphite, and another pound of sulphur
will keep the cuprous sulphite in solution, hut the greater part of tbis second pound of sulphur can be recovered. In practice aliout one pound uf
sulphur Is tequlred to treal 8 pounds
of copper contained in the ore. The
sulphurous acid is produced either liy
burning pyrites or sulphur; the former
can lie obtained in most mining districts and the latter orctirs in great
beds in Utah. When the original ore
is a sulphide it wiil furnish, by roasting, ample sulphurous acid for its own
treatment.
Tlie advantages of the process over
lhe sulphuric or hydrochloric uold
method are: 1. Cost of thecheinicul
is low. 2. II is generated on Ihe spot
hy lhe use of a very simple plant, .').
A relatively small amount of the
chemical used. I. The copper Is separated from the solution hy heal alone,
ii The copper produced is practically
free from impurities.
.Sulphurous acid produced by masting pyrites is the cheapest chemical
procurable in the western country and
lhe planl is much simpler than that
used in making sulphurous acid. A
iiiiii uf copper converted into cuprous
sulphite requires Init half the sulphur
Ihut would be required to convert it.
Into ciipric sulphate. Cuprous sulphite
is precipitated from the solution without tlie use of scrap iron, which is a
greal. advantage in remote districts.
Ill southern Utah, for instance, scrap
would cost from $40 to $50 per ton and
