An Eagle representative sought an
Interview Wednesday with Mr, Donald
G. Forbes, manager of tbe Great Western Mines, Ltd., and the Silver Cup
mine. Mr. Forbes answered the questions that wero put to him ln a free and
open manner. On being asked if the
recent transfer of interests, and the
change in the directorate and management bad tbe effect of altering the
plana of work previously mapped out
to" the season and the employees at the
mines, Mr. Forbes said it bad not, but
the work was being carried on pretty
much at under the former management.
Mr. B. Crilly, however, does nut go tn
fie Silver Cup now as he formerly did,
but hia attention is confined to tho Nettle L.
The new management have, however,
made one important change in relation
to the Double Eagle Co. wblch Is practically owned and   controlled by tbe
Great Western Mines, Ltd. Under the
new regime the Double Eagle properties will nnt he developed extensively
tbis summer, bit next winter the management hope to push development as
rapidly as possible and endeavor by
spring to *;et, some of tbe Double Eagle
properties In shape tushlporesteadily.
Il Isiielleved that tbe May Ilee could be
put/in position to make heavy ship*
ments. by a.few mouths work being
done,. The writer waa through the
workings s short time -ago and found
everyt'iin/ looking good. The management have closed tbe May Bee .'or
tbe balance of the summer anil the
foreman, Jack I'erisiau, and his men
have been transferred to the Nettle L.,
thus increasing the force at ihis mine
considerably.
Things are now in shape at tho Nettie L. to ship a large quantity of ore
during the balance of the summer and
full and there is no reason why steady
shipments should not be made from
this on. A now dining rnnm mid conk
house are being everted which will
give belter accommodation to Hie men,
anil will provide fur an Increased num
ber of employees that it will be found
necessary tn hum
A compressor plant Is expected to ar*
rive in a few weeks to be inttaliod at
the mine as early as possible.
THE SILVER CUP.
At tbo Silver Cup mine very little
change has takon place undor the new
management. Tho force, however, has
boen increased and it will be still further increased very soon. A tunnel is
being driven that, when completed,
will be 370 feet long and it will tap the
ore body 370 feet below tho old work-
lues and abuut 000 feet below the surface.
A compressor plant is to be installed,
also at the cup, in the early fall, when
with the facilities thus afforded th>*
mine should be a bummer next winter
and the tonnage of ore shipped from
the Ferguson camp next yoar should be
very much Increased over this year.

Tke Phoenix smelters treated over
.50,000 tons of ore the first six months
of the year.
Electric trams nn tbo Duncan river'
is tho latest scheme for affording the j
mines on tbe Duncan river, aide of the |
Lardeau country an outlet tor their;
ores. Jaraos Carson Murray, formerly
of Rossland, writes from Trout Lake to
state that a syndicate of Now York
and Minneapolis capitalists are maturing a scheme to take up all the timber
on the Duncan river that they can secure, and tbat they propose constructing an electric tramway on the river,
with aerial trams up the creeks running into the main Duncan. Thi. further solves the problem of transportation for the Lardeau, as the new branch
of the Canadian Pacific does not afford
facilities fur shipping ore from the Duncan side of the divide.
The American capitalists have an
engineer named Gray ln the Lardeau
at tbe  present time, inspecting the
country generally and reporting on the
titnhcr and mineral prospects.
Mr. Murray States lhut there is considorablo excitement over recent
strikes In the Old Gold camp. On tbe
Guinea Gold property a lead was discovered showing up ore that runs 1.200
to 1,600 ounces of silver per ton, while
on the Pedro, which Is being operated
hy the recently organized Mario Marilla company, a lead has been opened
up In which tbe ore carries leaf and
wire native silvor. The assays of
these samples containing native sliver
give enormous values.
As,*** director of tho Cariboo Creek
Development Syndicate of Kossland,
Mr. Murray has reeenily vieited tho
syndicate's claims on Cariboo creek
and Is muoh pleased with tho prospects
for the property. Ho states that wben
he went in tho claims were somewhat
difficult of access owing to tbe lateness
of the season, and tbat It bad been de
termined not tn prosecute work actively
until it, was possible to get in supplies
and tenia under tbe moat fuvurable circumstances,
J. W. Westfall, manager of the syndicate at I.urdeau, writes to state that
he has gone over the Effie and Colonial
claims, owned bv the company on Carl-
boo creek, and llmt he finds the properties all that have been said of tbem.
The ledge on the 3flle la. strong and
well maintained, carrying a quantity ol
clean ore, though essentially a concentrating proposition of moro than ordinary merit. Tho Colonial, which adjoins, looks equally well,
In addition to the claims mentioned
the syndicate owns a group In the im-
| mediate vicinity of the Guinea Gold
| priperty, on which bonanza silver ore
was discovered a few days since, and
! the value of "these holdings Is subslan-
' tlally enhanced by the strikes In the
I Vicinity.���Rossland Miner.
t'omatock  Fraiiirty.
One of tbe most encouraging prospects up the north fork is the Comstock.
The tunnel which waa being driven on
tbe ledge of this property is now in 116
feet and rood concentrating ore bat
been encountered throughout.
Sample! taken from tbe end of this
drift, and recently assayed gave retulta
of tii In gold, 7 ounces silver, and 4
por cent copper. As tbose samples
were fully 00 per cent rock, It is readily seen that the concentrates from the
ledge would be ot nu mean value.
The ore consists of Iron pyrites, copper pyrites and galena in a gangue of
quartz* and calclte.
The Cleveland company owning the
Comstock are well pleased with tbe results ol their development work thus
far and will no doubt In the near future
extensively open up tbis promising
property.

Prem er Dunsmuir has been inter-

ifhinstl as "an interview*.d"*-than
he di i as a poliiic:an at home:' According to the report of what Mr,
Dunsmuir said, he took advantage
ot the opportunity to let it he known
i hat Canada is a country of opportunities and great possibilities, and
that British Columbia is not the
least important of the several provinces that go to make up the Do*
minion. One statement he made is
of interest; he said that the govern*
ment are preparing an exhaustive
report on copper, iron and steel
pulp', timber and other industries of
importance to the province. It is
ro be hoped that the report will be
nf some practical service, some*
thing more useful than the general
run of government publications.
There- is a great field for advertising the resources of the province in
the judicious use .of printer's ink,
but the.publications emanating from
the goverrttttent must be up to date
���tnd deal fully and in a masterly
manner with the subjects discussed
and this cannot be said of the so
tatted "Bulletins" or the annual reports that come out months after
their latest data are as old as the

Tha EI,nore Process.
It wuuld be a  remarkable thing if
tbe Elmore proce..** of oil concentration
did for Bilti-ih  C'oluiubiit   what  the
cyanide process did for thelUnd.   In
���outh Africa that percentage of the
-/���old which could not be outurht oa the
plates had to bo sav.tl, or elao very
many of the mlueacould not have been
made to pay, and nil of the mines would
have  been obliged   to restrict their
worki.'.'-a to the richer sputa.   Tbe development of thu cyanide process solved the problem, aud *n:tdn the Rand
the greatest sold Held In the world.
In British Columbia the problem is entirely different.     In   the  process of
-.mcltiii..' the amount of   fold lo-t la
very very small.   It la practically all
saved,   But In British Columbia there
ib an enormous tuumtxo of mineralized
rook which In lis crude form will nut
���stand tbo coat or smelting*   The heavy
sulphide ore wblch contains high values la cheaper to smelt than ibis low
���Trade sllinlous ore*   A small percentage of tho latter can be mixed in the
furnace, charge, but ua it exists In tLe
ratio of probably teu tons to one, thia*
does not advance its utilization much.
It ia this ore which the Elinui-u process
attacks.   The affinity between metallic
substances und oil is well known.   If
only a very littlo oil is poured Into the
atroara of water concentrator, it will
counteract the principle of gravity In
saving tbe richer particles, and flout
tbem triumphantly past every known
device for Intercepting them.   The Elmore process Uses this affinity between
oil and metal instead of gravity to savs-
the metal.   Experimentally it hus boen
proved successful.   It remains to bt*
seen to what extent it Is capable of
practical  application.     If   successful
tbe limits of Its application to our low
grade ores lire not easily set.   If we

Great Klondike if lues.
One of the most remarkable discoveries ever made in the Klondike
region uf the Northwest Territory of
tbe Dominion, was recently repotted
byjohu Hepburn, wbo made the (Is-
covery and is now on his way to London to organize a compauy for tl e
operation of the property.
The ore deposits are said to consist
of a quartz conglomerate, wblch in extent and richness as well as in adaptability to treatment aud development Is
without doubt the greatest thn world
baB ever seed. This deposit is on Indian river, twenty-eight miles from
Dawson. These tree milling deposits,
rich lo freo gold, are eight miles long
from one and one-half to four miles
wide, and have a depth of not far from
.'���00 feet, There is enough free milling
ore showing gold and assaying from
tlOO to 1200 per ton to keep 20,000
stamps working for 100 years. All reports say tbat tbe Immensity of tbe
deposits cuonot be estimated and tbat
tbeir wealth would make that of the
famous Band minos of South Africa
look insignificant. Mr. Hepburn bas
secured 130 claims on tbis great dike
and says that one uf these claims, tbe
only one examined by a competent en,

inore than 184,000,000.���Oros and Miael.
