On Tuesday afternoon a party
consisting' of Messrs. Tom Taylor,
M.L.A., G. B. Batho, J. C. Kirkpatrick, and J. J. Atherton (representing the Eagle), visited the concentrating and chloridising plant at
Five-Mile, owned by the Silver Cup
Mines, Ltd. The party were received by Mr. Swinney, the genial
manager ot the company, who personally conducted the visit of inspection and acted as mentor and
A brief glance at the liappy faces
of Ihe men employed, and the conclusion arrived at was complimentary to the fare provided for the
inner man. Our representative
chatted with several ot them, unci
to his query of "How's everything ? " the answer would come,
"Great! "
About 75 men are now employed, nnd in another month the
total staff operating will reach close
on 206. It is expected that too
Ions of ore per" clay will then be
found necessary when it was decided
to build the mill. This line leaves
the main line some 3,000 feet vertically, and 6,000 feet horizontally
below the upper terminal, and runs
direct to the mill, with a vertical
drop of 1,100 feet. At the junction
of the lines, bins are provided, into
which the ore frtim the main line is
sizers, and from there the ore,
which has now the appearance of
powder or cement, is received by
the Docld buddies and modified
Wilfieys, of which there are six on
the 4th floor. From here it passes
to the fioor below, on which are tbe
Vanners and Wilfieys, and at this
point the lay mind  receives its first
discharged,   and   from  these   bins j impressions of the wonderful system
filled into the buckets of the supple- of     concentrating    the
mental line, and  by them delivered metals,
direct into the bins at thc mill.
Tlu second and third class ore
dumps accutnmulated in the development of the "Cup" workings
are at present not being treated at
the mill, as the recent snowslide
completely checked progress in that
direction. But the obstructions
around the latter mine are being
cleared away, and at present the
mill is treating with ore from the
Nettie L,
The mill is erected on a hillside,
sloping down from the  road to the
South Fork, at an angle of about
t 20 degrees, admirably adapted for | *,he C(.m,:.,ny
From the mouth of the Sunshine the laying out of the mill in benches
tunnel an aerial Irffmway has been : or doors as has been done. The
constructed to the valley of tbe 1 subsoil is sand and gravel, which is
South Fork. The upper terminal a good material lor foundations, and
is just sufficiently below the tunnel admitting of excavation at a low
to admit of suitable bunkers, while cost.   The mill has been laid out in
thc lower terminal is just across the
Fork and on the wagon road, about
3 J-J miles from Five-Mile. The
tramway is of the standard Riblet
type, 7,200 Ieet long, with a drop
between the terminals ot 2,600 feet.
The cables are i-inch and f-j-inch
in diameter respectively, and the
buckets have a normal capacity of
1,000 lbs. The tramway is operated
by two men, one at each terminal,
and is capable of taking u load up
of equal to ��0 per cent of the down
weight. Tbe plant is a splendid
piece of work, and is working as
smoothly as the flight of a bird.
A    supplemental   tramway   was
floors, arranged in steps, the ore
being received at the highest point
and gradually descending by gravity
through the various processes.
The following is an approximate
arrangement of the mill, and the
treatment the ore receives.
On the first floor are the ore-
receiving bins which have a capacity
of 200 tons. Here also is the
crusher. From this lloor the ore
passes to the next one, wherein are
20 stamps pounding away clay and
night ; they are divided into four
batteries of five stamps each, the
weight of the stamps being f,ooo
lbs. each.    On the 3rd floor are the
There the naked eye could see
the precious metal lingering to be
further treated, while the water
.which is being mechanically shaker,
carries away the powdered rock to
the drying floor, and from thence to
the 7th door, on which there are two
Howell-White roasting and chloridising furnaces. After being treated
in the furnaces, it is extracted and
allowed to cool off, after which it is
received by 10 pan amalgamators
and five settlers. Here can be seen
the precious metal, for which men
ave dug and delved, and for which
owning tlie plan
have spent untold wealtif to produce. When above, at a distanco
of 70 feet, we saw the ore being
dumped into the bins, at this end
ihe metal is pouring steadily from
the ejectors into pannikins, and we
As will be noticed the plant is
partly a concentrator and partly a
chloridising plant. Tbe mill and
the process of concentrating adopted have been designed by Mr.
Attwood, the company's consulting
engineer, to whom great credit is
due. There is not another plant
laid down of its kin in the length
and breadth of Canada, and the
company owning it are deserving of
Ihe highest praise for installing of
the plant, and Ferguson is proud of
the company and overjoyed at tbe
good results.
The Dundonald Speech.
Verbatim Iteport <��r tin, Spoecl,

" When a nation is at war, aud when
national danger stares that nation in
the face, it entrusts tho promotion anil
selection for tho advancement to the
general whom it entrusts to lead ii.
Political intrigue for personal advancement other than that deserved by military ellleieney is dormant in the times
of national terror hoar, hear). Hu*.
whon peace comes and all is quiet, and
the vigilance of a nation for its national interest is at rest, political wiles
and political schemes then begin to
weave their nets, the nation no longer
at tbat time, being watchful. But I
care not, gentlemen, who tlio man is,
if he advances one man or penalizes
another on account of tho political
color of his party, I say tbat man, whosoever that man may be, is not a friend
of his country (applause). Recently,
gentlemen, a gross instance of political
interference has occurred. I sent a
list of officers of the Thirteenth Light
Dragoons to the Gazette, the Thirteenth, commanded by an efficient gentleman whom I seo here now. 1 pent a
list of these officers to tho Gazette. 1
was astonished to receive the list back;
with the name of one officer scratched
off and Initialed by the Minister of
Agriculture, Mr. Sydney Fisher. That
gentloman was a man I considerod'well
equipped to serve the KId*-1 in tho
Thirteenth Scottish Regiment (applause). Dr. Pickle, Mayor of Swoeta
burg, chosen of tbo people, ono of tho
champions of Missisquoi. What better
man to serve the King? (hear, hear).
I feel certain that had Mr. FisherY
life led him to soldiery instead of ta
agriculture, be would teel Annoyed,
perhaps on personal grounds, at the
extraordinary lack of etiquette involved in scratching the name of -i
gentleman put forward by a man whose
business it is to lind sufficient officers
for the militia (applause). But on personal grounds, gentlemen. I don't lithe least mind. Lack of etiquette
affects mo littlo; I havo beon two
years in Ottawa, gentlemen laughter).
It is not on personal grounds that! in
form you of this, but lt is on national
grounds (hear, hear), f feel, gentlemen, anxious, profoundly anxious, that
the militia of Canada mny bo kept frfie
! from party politics." (Hear hear,
and loud applause.)

hoped It would not be granted. Senator Templeman said ono result of tho
bounty was that all lead pipe used In
Canada would in it few years be manufactured in British Columbia.
Senator Lougheod���Why not convert the bounty into a duty ?
Senator Tomploman���It would not

FRIDAY,   JUNE 24,   1904.
At the present time, while the
eyes of kings, statesmen and diplomats are' riveted on the far East,
the eyes of the financial world are
directed to the Lardeau, and especially to the mining camp at Ferguson. There is an object lesson
right here, and as we have no "wildcats " for sale, and as our boom
days are passed, we wish to point
out to the hard-headed man of the
world that the townsite of Ferguson
now stands a living monument to
the wealth of the hills surrounding
us. Shrewd tradesmen ol the town
who were lar-seeing enough to anticipate a permanent township have
realized their hopes, and are reaping a reward for their enterprise
and confidence. There is not a
man in this town but who has unbounded faith in the belief that Ferguson is to become the greatest
raining centre of the country. It is,
or should be sufficient for us to
point out that if the output of ore
of the camp did not warrant their
making it their headquarters, they
would soon " fold their tents, like
Arabs, and silently steal away ? "
We desire the right class here, and
we are prepared to stand by any
assertion we make. We are
not floating any company; rather
are we extending an invitation to
tbe " fancy " to pay us a visit. We
are not in the pay of any combination or combinations of groups,
The town of Ferguson sinks or
swims as a mining centre on its
merits, and tor our part we are prepared to stay right with it.
We know more men have been
fpoled in the mining business, and
more men have burned their fingers
in the stock markets since the precious metals have been sought afler
than any stickler for statistics
would care to tackle. The primary
cause of a bad bargain in nearly
every instnnce is the lack of knowledge of the subject. Wc have
said that thc eyes of the country
were upon us. Why ? It is because the solution to the transportation problem has be;n solved, and
unlike Mahomet, who had of necessity to go to the mountain, we have
had it. brought right here. It is because we have in our camp the
smartest piece of mechanism for
the treating of low-grade ores
mind of man ever conjured. " In
rock, and out���bullion." It is too
well known that we have " on
sight" enough of such ore to keep
many ol thesemills pounding, for us
to indulge in any panegyrics on
that truism. We would say to the
capitalist or to the investor : Here
we have the ore and the facilities,
That Lord Dundonald did not
use discretion in his speech at the
banquet we all agree, but his being
fired by the powers does not lessen
the great respect which every true
Canadian or Britisher holds for the
brave resourceful soldier who held
such exalted ideas of our military
honor that he in an unguarded
moment denounced political intrigue for personal gain. Nor docs
the choice vocabulary of insulting
epithets directed to him diminish
our regard for bim, or a greater
respect for Ihe premier who calls a
Britisher a "foreigner."
The sincere sympathy ol everyone will be extended to the people
of New York in the great affliction
they have sustained, for there are
many saddened homes in the great
city as a result of the terrible disaster which occurred in New Vork
Harbor on Wednesday, 15th inst.,
in which over 700 persons perished.
A sad ending to a pleasure trip of
women and children.
Tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock,
all residents should shut down
and wend their ways to the school-
house, for there the annual meeting
of the school trustees will be held to
transact important business, and for
nomination and election of a trustee,
which position is rendered vacant
through Mr. J. Q. McKinnon retiring, and whose term of office has
expired, and is eligible for re-election.
The occasion must be taken advantage of bv all, as public meetings
are few and far between. If any
citizen has been brooding over any
fancied or real grievance, and there
is any kick held in reserve, this will
be an opportune occasion to lash
out. But we must be consistent,
and " For the children " must be
our watchword.
