Spokesman Review haa the following
to aay regarding the matter:
Uelatlons between tho Cueur d'Aleno
mineownera and thu f*meltiutf trust are
on the verge of a ui'usli, It now t-ei-ui.-
iwhtired that a loud smelter and
it'Hnery, with a enpaeity of atloaM
500 tons a day employing hundreds ol
m***n, for treat!nu the ores of tht* Coeui
d'Alenes and of Republic, w'll be huili
here within a year. A similar plant
will prohnhly be erected at Denver to
luindle the surplus of the Conird1
Aleno ores, whieh can not bo treated
to advantage here.
A cupltal of $1,500,000 would be
invested in the enterprise here, of
which about $500,000 would be spent on
lhe plant, and it would be supplied by
the mlneownera of the Cueur d'Alenea.
A smelter for Spokane has been
talked of and dreamed of fur years.
Now it seems near ut hand, fur the
imnemvnera havo reached iv point,
where tbey have decided to redi.ee
their own ores.
Matters havo been prfietpMft'ed
lately by the refusal of the smelting
I'nmpi'ny to handle shipments uf oro

'���ver been reached in ihe mlnlcyl
circles nf the Np.LMhwe&t. Sicethe
loiinnion of tho Ajoerlean Snioitinj-;
& Refining Company, and Its Hecurlntj
control over nearly all.ihe leud smol
ters of the country, things.have bt*en
decidedly strained, The smelting
unmpany eoutrollefl hy the ntl^gen*

whioh the Coeur d'Alone mtneowncrs
B'jonld market their prtidnct, The

has always been charged that tbo
trust has mado enormous profile from
ihe rebates whioh it gut from thu
railways uu freight bills paid by Uu
Then, too, the smelting ehargo
have been considered high, and re-
queAts for reduutjous have been refused. The -molting trust some time
ago undertook to limit the amount t-f
ore which iho mines could put on tin
market. Tho out put wan limited to
two-thirds of the alleged normal pr-i

Against these conditions the mine-
mv ners have steadily complained
without relief, until a i-hort time ag'-
they decided to cut free frnm the
smelting trust. The Coenr d'Alem
mini's produce about 25 per cent of al1
tho argentiferous lead ore in the
United States. The resulting llghl
with the smelting trust is uertain t.i.
be a lively one, for it, i-i expected thn'

Other Prneff-H In  View,
The trend of the Investigations made
by iho com mil too is directed toward
the establishment of a me] tori5, bin
other methods of reducing ore have
been examined A few days ago a
consignment of lf**s than a car nf ore
from the Standard mine wns shipnm
to D"nver t.n he treated by the Pobl-
('roa-dalo process. Thi! inventor, Mr
Pub I, was for years assayer for the
Globe smelting works and tested
thousands of tons of Standard nro. He
believes that his new process wll'
treat it perfectly.
The prncpss ts a simple one. The
erode nre is nut* concentrated, but, Is
pulverized linally. mixed with salt, and
roasted, Chlorine gas is generated
from the Bait, which can-ins olT tin
metals in the for-m of fumes. The gnils treated to separate the various
metals, and v ruin metal ia produced.
If tho treatment Is successful, a plum
miv he erected iu tho Comic d'Aienea
to handle the ore, At present frnm i,i
to 2'l per cent of the value nf the ore i>
lost in coucentratinn, Then, too, ii
shipping tlie concentrates, freighi
must he paid on about as much waste
rook as mo, for the concentrates carr.-i,
roughly, unly about ni) per cent of lean.

Whon you peoo woman with ft bund
of white plumage almost invisibly
tinted with blue and Mi-eon and more
stroriy"ly with uolden brown ornament-
inp h'T bat, know that from ono to six
of these harinlnfia, lovable, sweet
voiced little probes were stripped from
chin to vem to supply it. And when
you boo that other woman wearing'a
cape thu cellar uf whieh reaches abovo
her ears and Lhe skirt to her slaulders.
and it, seems io be made tip of almost
Indesoernlblo sections the size of your
hand' know that eaeh section stands
for tho life ^f ono of these charming
Utile i-):;,liners. The broast of the
grebe is its enve. Its feathers aro mi
tiny and line as to bo almost spineless,
f.\j thickly set thoy stand on end, and
so delicately colored as to render
adequate description impossible.
Crested trrebes are killed without
mercy for this littlo patch of rare
feathering, and- tho little marsh one*
do not escape. There Is no bird
slaughtered for plumage more wanton,
unless it bo lhat of tho egret whieh
takes tbo lifo of the brooding bird for
u few beautiful feathers found on tho
shoulders only at noBting time aud
leaves the youth to dlo as they may.
