DIVIDEND PAYING CABIBOO
Value of the Bullion Output for
Last Year was $160,831.
NEW POLICY ADOPTED
Money Taken out to be put Back in
Mine-May Erect a Cyanide Plant.
i At the Hiinunl meet ing of I In* Oit'i-
boo McKinney Co,, nt Camp McKinney, held recently nt the he.ul office,
Toronto, 11 Urge number nt sharehold-
ers were present.
The important feature uf lie reports
presented is ili.it the management is
temporarily passing dividends, und
putting the product of the mine hack
Into the properly, with a view to
heavier production later on. It is
this policy which has plucrd the liig
American railway 'systems on their
present excellent basis, und caused the
present Wall-street boom.
President Robert Jaffrny in his report noted that the "operations for
lbe year ended Dec. 81. 11)00, show a
net profit of $53,148.02, out of which
there were paid to the shareholders
dividends amounting to the sum uf
1,000. Owing to difficulties encouti
tered in the working of the mine,
wbich entailed unusual expense, the
profits arising from the company's
operations were not us large as was an*
ticiputi'd. Upon the recommendation
of the managing director, lhe direc
tors have determined to suspend for a
brief period the payment of dividends,
and toapply lhe earnings to the development uf the ore chutes, with a
view to a more economical working of
the mine, believing that lhe result will
tully justify this policy."
The managing director, Mr. George
B. Mi'Anlay, in his report slates that.
there has heen mined and milled during the year 15,218 tons of ore, yielding
11,11111 ounces ii gold bullion, and 557
Uins of concentrates. Ti.e ore mined
wasfnr ihe -i pari taken from the
Saw tooth and Okanogan claims, lietween the second aud fourth levels.
'The .mining of ore from your property was conjunction with further exploration of the mine and consequently
a consideralile poition of iheoutput for
the year was lire cxincted during the
process of development, from the drifts
and upraises opened up for that purpose. The development curried on
during the year has lieen to the east on
the Okanagan ground, and to the west
on the Caribou ground. The present
development of the properly includes
four shafts, the main shafl heing 370
feet iu depth.
'The breaking of the v ■■•• to au unexpected degree has added to the cost
of working the property during the
past year.
"Owing to the extend 'd breaks in
the continuity tbe vein hotli east
and wesl on the various levels, tbe increase iu the capacity of the company's inifl suggested in my last annual
report, was for the present deemed
inexpedient, Tbe exploration nf the
pnints where the ledge was found to be
broken being expensive when carried
on hy means of drifts, a diamond drill
plant bas heen secured, aud is now iu
operation. It is expected that liy ihis
means Ihe cost of exploration will be
materially lessened."
Regarding another point Mr. McAulay says : "The accumulation of
tailings from the mill having become
so great as to render necessary further
provision for their retention, a new
iIjiiu has been constructed SIX) feet below the old iliim. Extensive testshave
heen made of these tailings, and it has
been ascertained thut ey carry
values tanging from $2.31 lu $4,811 per
ton. rin- treatment of ihese hillings
ami extraction uf the values contained
therein by lhe cyanide procss i» a
question which should receive consideration at an early date, us heen
demonstrated that the erection of a
cyanide plant for the treal ment of
these tailings, and ils operation in conjunction wilh the company's present
stamp mill, will add materially to the
company's revenue. My investigations
imu the question of the treatment of
ore and tailings by the cyanide process
have demonstrated that the erection
uf such a plant at I he company's mine
will virtually be equivalent to un in
crease of WO per eent. in thc capacity
of the company's iniTl. Tliere having been up to the present time no
provision for the saving of values from
tailings, the aim hus heen tu save all
that wus possible by plate amalgamation und concentration, and in leave
as little as possible iu the mill tailings.
To this end a tine crushing of the ore
hy the stumps, yet the mill tailings as
above set forth carry considerable
values the extraction of wliieh is not
possible by amalgamation aim conceit
nation,   Witb the introduction of a
cyanide plant for the treatment of the
tailings, a coarser crushing of the ore
wnuld be more advantageous, as all
values not saved in the stamp mill
would lie saved by the cyanide treatment, the cost of which would ba no
greater than for the saving of values
in the present tailings, which hy reason of a fine crushing being thus rendered necessary, double the quantity
of ore could be run through tlie mill,
thus doubling its capacity as above
stated, and rendering unnecessary any
present addition to the number of
stamps in operation.
"The present main shaft at the
mine, a single compartment shaft, lias
hitherto answered ull requirements
reasonably well. The further develop
ment of the mine will, however, render necessary in the near future the
sinking of a new shaft, which, in order
to provide for present and Inl ure requirement*! and facilitate uu economical working of the mine, should be a
three compartment shaft. The proper
location for this new shaft, will be determined by the exploration by means
of the diamond drill now in operation
at the mine,"
Mr. McAuley winds up his report hy
saying tbat the pursuit of the policy
outlined will increase the yielding
poweroftbe mine and ils ultimate
value.
Shareholders will he glad lo learn
that the output fnr .Iiinuury, 1901,
much exceeded that for January, 1IKXI.
The receipts from bullion for 'the
year were $100,831.85, and the cost of
machinery and of working the property for the year was $83,001.1)1,
In Sheridan Camp.
Much new work is being done in
Sheridan camp and very satisfactory
results are being obtained. A shaft
has been sunk on one of the Walla
Walla group of claims lo a depth of
40 feet and ut the bottom of the shaft
the ledge has been crosscut und found
tu be nine feet wide. Near the surface
the assays gave only ahoul $5 per ton,
hut in tbe bottom of the shafl the entire body shows a value of .$10. It is
believed that by the lime the shaft is
100 feet in depth they will have shipping ore. There is a litlle copper in
the ore, but its chief values are in gold
and silver, and these are in about equal
proportions.
The Stemwinder tunnel is in 125
feet, according to reports. There
is considerable wat er coming i n at I he
face and other indications point to the
near approach to the ledge. Where
npened on the surface it showed a
width of six feet. Assays run from
$3 or $4 to $40 per ton.
A tunnel is being driven on the Deer
Bed, nnd it is in 50 feet. A shaft is
being sunk on the Deer Bed ledge und
has reached a depth of 50 feet. The
ledge is five feet wide No assays have
been made for tune, hut the ore
looks well and is believed to be much
richer than it was near ihe surface.
Some of lhe assays showed $150 per
ton. It is a silver-gold proposition,
with silver as (be leading melul. The
ore is of much the same  character us
that taken from the Zulu M.

To Agree Upon Rates.
A representative of the Republic
Mining Company will visit Spokane
this week and will confer Willi the
principal managers of the Republic
mine regarding the milling of customs
ore, when a rale for their treatment
will he submitted. If it he ugreeable to
the mine owners the camps will he
booming and there will be many new
shippers,
Tbe condition in the Republic ramp
is now at tlie point where there is but
little more development wmk tu be
dune to make the mines shippers. The
camp bus been waiting for u chance to
treat the oi es and unless this can lie
accomplished there will lie but little
use for the low grade mines to continue
work.
It. has lieen itimored that the mine
owners of Ilie district bave agreed to
stay together to secure reasonable
rates, and that if that i- not given
Ihem there will he no shipping. It is
abo reported thai the milling company
is not anxious lo construct, the'roud to
Ihe camp, as it would not lie of advantage to the mill, which is constantly lieing increased in capacity,
and which, it is said, wishes to mill all
the ore at ils own price.
This report is denied by all Ihe men
Interested in the Republic mines, who
claim the Republic mill is working in
harmony with Ihe camp and wbo hnve
little doubt thai the most reasonable
rates will be offend the olher mines.
This week tbe question will lie seitled
and the situation in th-i Republic camp
wili be determined.

sinn is lo Induce mining and oilier
business men to join ihe organization.
Mr, Dale was very successful oil tlie

"The association," said Mr. Dale,
"was founded more I Inui IS) years ago
and in the lust decade il hit's accomplished invaluable woik. It is un
organization of bona ilile Oa ifdd Ian

snie purpose of conserving the interests of Canadian niuiiiifuriurers and
for the promotion of Canadian trade
both foreign ami domestic. It rcpie-
sentsat least $100,tXX),(XX) of capital
unci the membership includes every
province except Prince Edward Island.
"Al a time when our railway companies, our banking institutions, etc.,
have their skilled legal advisers watching every move in legislation, it is imperative that' manufacturer as a class
should have their interests watched
witli equal vigilance, ion I this is only
possible ihrough organization in an
Ubsociatiun. At present every bill int.ro.
iIikviI iu parliament is carefully reviewed by nur parliamentary committee, and'its probable effect on manufacturing Interests examined carefully.
In tliis way we are warned, and prepared to oppose any unwise legislation,
tu suggest Improvements, and assist
tlie passage of acceptable legislation.
"The association bus established, und
will further extend a Bureau of Commercial Intelligence fur the use of
members. Any member desiring ut

interest is ju-t the snine with a (.'nu-
servative as with a Reform manufacturer. All tariff recommendations
made liy ihis association are p'vviously
considered iu committee, the result being, thai when ihey arc presented to

represent at least lbe views of the association,
"There are strong sentimental rea-
Sons in addition to tbe practice I objects
calling upon us to make il. lbe most

products and so counteracting that
popular prejudice iu favor uf imported
guilds.
"Uur railway committee, composed
of practical shlppeis, is carefully ac-
cumulating information relating io
Ihis subject, and endeavors in cveiy
case to see i Iuit redress is secured lor
shippers who have specific grievances,
ll. is urged on the government that
our.association should have submitted
to il change iu rates and classifications
proposed liy the railway companies
before they become law, so ihal no
unfair conditions may be imposed lie•
fore manufacturers have the opportunity of presenting their views. Further, it is now urging for the more
prompt adjustment of claims by the

MONDAY. FEBRUARY 18. IDOL
The Bohcaygeon Independent is amusingly astonished at how thoroughly
unacquainted William J. Bryan ia with
the troubles ofa newspaper man and
refers to his published announcement
as follows: Mr. Bryan haa joined the
multitudinous ranks of those who imagine Ihey were horn to run a news-
puper. He ia publishing a paper called
The Commoner, and In hia ouMlshed
announcement he says he haa for
several years contemplated the establishment of a weekly newspaper,
Poor fellow, how much happier for
him had he continued in the sweet
contemplation. *'The paper will, if
successful, ao he naively observe*, provide an income sufficient for my pecuniary needs." What retlrinj- modesty tliere must bo in his needs, and
what sublime hope is here implied.
"And this kind of work, he goes on to
say, will allow me more lime with my
family." Heavens I the simple innocence oft he maul "I expect to lecture occasionally," he says, nnd that is
an excellent idea. He should arrange
to lecture every Friday night. It will
help him out ou Saturdays, and keep
tlv* grocer in better twist. By spending his afternoons with the family,
lectin ing in lhe evenings occasionally,
and running The Commoner at odd
intervals, he will he able lo put In a
remarkably gilt edged and silver lined
time for a newspaper man. He concludes his announcement with the twn
short and pointed sentences, ''The
flrst issue will appear in January. I
shall be proprietor and editor." What
a thrilling pride reverberated beneath
his chest protector when he wrote that
lust sentence. Well, let the thrill reverberate, let the chest protector
flutter with tbe palpitations nf his
manly pride, for, poor fellow, he little
dreams of the cold hunks of experience
that lay before him, little does be contemplate the meek and humble ma-a
of dejection there will be when The
Commoner gets through mopping
eternal space with tbe majestic creature, Ihe paragon of being, that now
struts upon the glaring ttage of fame
as Mr. Bryan, Editor,
Elsewhere in this issue we publish a
lei ter from F. W. McLaine regarding
the recent poisoning of dogs, and we
quite agree with all that Mr. McLaine
has said.   It seems a pity lhat a dog
cannot lie kept in  Midway without
tunning great chances of having it
poisoned.  The destroying of dogs in
Midway by tbis inhuman method dates
buck to three years ago, when some
unknown person distributed poisoned
biiit freely throughout thetown wilh
the result lhat several fine dogs met
their death, while some cure tbat were
h puhlic nuisance escaped. An attempt
wus made by the police officer at Mid
way to discover who it waa that was
guilty of the cowardly act, but to no
purpose.   However, the fact that the
I olice were so untiring in their efforts
lo bring the guilty party to justice had
the effect of slopping it for lime and it
was supposed that all danger waa over
and all dogs were again allowed at liberty, hut again the villain commenced
his duties of distributing the fatal bait
and before it was known that Ihere
was any danger several more valuable animals suffered the agonies of
death hy poison.  That lime the heartless wretch threw poison into the yard
of T. McAuley and poisoned a St, Bernard hitch that was nursing a litter of
small puppies at the time and aa ihe
was perfectly harmless and a general
favorite in the town, it looks as if the
fiend hod a mania for poisoning dogs,
That was over a year ago and since
that time up lo a few days ago only
one ur two dogs have become victims
of the poisoned hint.   Bnl lurt Tuesday
a valuable pointer belonging to Or.
Jakes was found writhing hi pain and
upon examining the animal it was
found to lie suffering from l he effects of
poison.and in ft very short time it died.
The next day an imported Gordon setter, belonging to Mr. McLaine, met lhe
same fate, while several others that
were affected   were  brought   around
after considerable trouble.   Who Ih
guilty person is remains a mystery, as
evidently greal care has lieen taken in
every detail of tbe work of obtaining
the poison and in its distribution as
well.   Whoever is so heartless as to
kill dumb animals in this way shnuld,
if detected, receive the utmost penalty
provided for such offences.   If any one
has a grievance against a particular
dog in the town, and lhe grievance is
a just one,   let   redress   be  sought
through prosecuting Ihe owner of tbe
dog instead of adopting (he brutal
course nf throwing out poison to jeopardize the lives of every dog in the
lown. It is to he hoped that every cit-
Ixenof Midway will do his hest to
obtain any information that will lead
to the arrest and subsequent conviction nf l be guilty party.
..... .«„>_, —c mil w.ii.,11 lull tu
a recent issue of th* Cascade Record
In which the editor of that paper de
votes considerable  space lo pointing
out that a numher of Boundary papers
hod intimated that the editor of the
Phoenix   Pioneer   was  a subject of
swelled head, and endeavors to show
that he is a victim of unjust criticism.
Now if this were the flrst offence of
interfering witb other people's busi-
ness, that the editor of the  Record
was ever guilty of, or if the editor of
the Pinneer were tbe flrst person he
ever undertook to defend, we, who
are acquainted with the circumstances,
could quite easily overlook it, hut this
sort of thing bus become a hobby of
the Record man's.    Only   a   short
time ago he devoted nearly a column
to calling dnwn the  Spokesman  Review  for making certain statements
regarding W. J. Bryan, editor of the
Commoner.aiid undertaking to defend
bim against any attacks that might be
made. Judging from the Record man's
writings,  people  unacquainted with
him wnuld imagine he was wearing
the light weight newspaper championship belt of Ibe world and was looking
fora chance to extend his territory.
Did anyone ever hear of anything so
ridiculous as the plaintive wail of a
small sheet like the Record going up in
defence bf a man like Mt. Bryan, wbo
ia as capable of defending himself as
any man in the United States, and
attacking a newspaper tha'. is as strong
a power as the Spokesman Review?
Such an act is similar to hunting hig
game with a pop gun, or a dog hark
ing at a train, and will only meet witb
the same results.   The editor of th*
Record has undertaken a difficult task,
when be shoulders the responsibility
of adjusting all the little differences
tbat may arise among other news
papeis, and this task is rendered all
the more difficult when we take into
consideration the exceedingly small
calibre of his paper.   We would have
thought lhat the editor of the Record
would have ere this observed the ulti
mate fale of those who so readily
undertake lo settle little disputes between other people and would have
refrained from making such unnecessary remarks us he has been making
of Iale.   We say uf late because up to
a short time ago his paper did not
speak tbe mind ofa meddlesome man,
but that was when theeditorstayed at
home and every morning saw that tbe
machinery of the offiee was running
smoothly so lhat through the columns
of the Record the world would know
what was going on in it    But the
editor of ihe Record one tine morning
became bent on pleasure and hied himself to a neigboring town and we are I
afraid that tbe "contaminatinghellish-1
neas" of I he place changed l he editor's
way of thinking for ever since his
pessimistic editorials bespeak the mind
of one wbo is down on his luck and
felt pugnaciously inclined.  Take our
advice, editor Turner, and in  future
when shy of copy, avoid falling iuto
the fatal error of writing about things
that do not in the least concern you.
Write about anything else.  Tell us
ahout Cascade's water power.    Dish
up some more of your curry.   In fact
we can stand spring poetry tbat is
homegrown, better than such venem*
ous remarks as have lately been decorating your otherwise valuable paper,
but above all do not meddle.

Who Is Oullty ?
To the Editnrof t be Midway Advanck.
Dear Sib;—Through the medium uf
your valuable paper I should like to
express my feelings iu regard to the
poisoning of dogs around here.
Thei e has h"en for some yen is past
poisoned bait deliberately placed
around the lown, with the result that
several valuable and at the same lime
perfectly harmless und innocent dugs
huve thus been destroyed. On Tuesday a valuable imported pointer was
killed hy ihis means, and on Thursday
I lost a young thoroughbred Gordon
setter imported from England. It is
now impossible to allow a dog to run
loose, for fear of picking up some of
the bait, as well as for any stranger to
bring a dog into town. I earnestly beg
nf all owners of dogs and for those
who have at least some regard for
the welfare of our canine friends, to
help me to bring Ihe person or persons
guity of this despicable not lmd if
venting lln it spleen to justice. Thut
any one ran he so low and devoid of
one redeeming feature us to delii-er-
ately destioy any dog by such a
method is beyond my comprehension.
Again earnestly soliciting Ihe help nf
all Ihe citizens uf Midway to bring the
offender to justice, I remain. Ac.

object of acquiring information respecting the most modern copper
smelting appliances in use in lhe
States. Later he will meet Mr. Jay P.
Graves, managing director of the

Granby smelter at Grand Forks.
The report which waa circulated a
abort time ago to the effect ihat C. 8.
Morris, nt Olalla, had heen lured across
ihe line into the State of Washington
and arrested, is without foundation.
The report wis published in nearly all
the papers in tbe province and was
thought lo be reliable. Not only has
Mr. Morris denied tbe truth of the
statement but a gentleman from
Olalla was in Midway last week and
states that he has, since the date given
fnr Morris' arrest, hud conversation
with him and as the person who was
talking wilh Mr. Morris is well known
here ihis furnishes indisputable evidence that Mr. Morris is still enjoying
liberty and from what is known of
him it is altogether probable that he
will continue tn be a resident of Ihis
country, for whether Mr. Morris is
guilty or not of emW-izling the _funds
that he ia accused of, he wnuld lie put
to considerable trouble if he were to
cross Ihe line.
Ahout one hundred people attended
the masquerade ball held in Terry's
ball last Thursday evening. Owing to
the had condition of the roads caused
by the recent thaw those from a distance were rather late in arriving, so
that dancing did nol commence until a
late hour. Early in the evening il
looked as if the crowd were going to
be small bul by ten o'clock fully forty
couples were on the flour and dancing
was keiir up until an early hour next
morning. Ther*- was a great variety
of costumes, some of which were
beautiful and displayed great taste in
their make up. So close wo^ the competition tbat the judges were somewhat puxxled to know which couple
waa deserving of the prine, hul after
much discussion it was finally decided
that Bert Smith and lady were
justly entitled lo it. Among those
from a distance who attended were :
Mr. and Mrs. S.T. Larsen. Miss Abbott,
