Oyster-OriterioD Stamp Mill, Com-
pressor and Aerial Tram Aro in
Successful Operation.
Export Mining Men Say They Never Saw a Mill Give Better
Satisfaction.
Tho long delay in starting tho nowly
installed works at the Oyster-Criterion
mine ul Camborno, caused by tho tard-
inoss of tlio manufacturers in Bhtpping
tlio necessary water pipes, caino to an
end on Tuesday of last week, when all
preliminary arrangements worn completed and master mechanic A. G.
Street touched tho button, figuratively
speaking, and tho different works wore
sot in motion. In a fow minutes tho
aerial tram was carrying down the rich
freo gold ore from tho Oyster dumps
abovo, and as the buckets descended to
tho ore bins at the mill at tbo base of
tho mountain, thoy wero dumped, and
on thoy moved with the precision of
clockwork on* tho endless wire cablo
back to the mine, ono and a quarter
miles up the steep mountain, to bo refilled ns thoy passed through tho upper
terminal, and down again.
At tbo same timo tho mill started,
and its ten stamps woro soon dropping
witb grout rapidity and crushing the
oro to a pulp. As tho oro is crushed to
the required fineness, a stream of water
passes through, carrying ofTthc slimes,
as they are produced, to the plates
whero Lhe precious gold is sayed and
tho baso matter carried away by the
water. The stamps are of great weight
and are arranged in a row, aud are
raised by moans of wipers and cams on
a revolving shaft turned by water
power. 'I'ho cams release tbo stamps in
turn and thoy fall on tho oro lying in
chambers below, tho sides of these
chambers being perforated to allow tho
escape of the crushed ore us soon as reduced to tho required fineness. Slimes
arc thus produced, whicli, us stated
above, are carriod by means of a
'stream of water to tho plates below.
Thc ore is fed to tlio stamps from an inclined platform at the rear. Tho feed
Ing is automatic. His customary for the
stamps to drop constantly day and
night, and this practice will bo followed at the Oy.tor-Criterion, which, by
tho way, is one of the excollont properties belonging to tho Great Northern
Mines, Limited.
Mossrs. Crilly, assistant manager of
tho company, S. A. Sutherland, a director, and A. 1'. Garrett,' superintend-
���out of the Kettle L. mine, und an Eagle
representative were present when the
combined machinery wan Blurted.
Spcnking to the IS'.iglo reporter of the
marked excellence with which everything b.arluU, Mr, Crilly said: "The
machinery started as If it had been
running a month. I was surprised at
everything running so perfectly on the
start, and it cortaluly reflects great
credit on Mr. Street."
When Mr. S. Sutherland waB asked
for his views ho said, " Woll editor, 1
have scon all kinds of machlnory running, and although I must confess I urn
not experienced In. tlio running of
quart;: mills, I will say I never did seo
machinery run so smoothly and perfectly. I will say also lhat our whole
Oystor-Crlterlon experience is a de-.
moristration of "Billy" Pool's unerring
judgment. First in selecting tho undeveloped mining property, thon in purchasing machinery, and again in choos-
iug a capable, man to .install it.
I refer of course to A. C. Streot,
who had full charge of installing
stamp mill and compressor. As far as
ifam porsunully concerned I feel more
than satisfied, I am delighted,"
The next person to bo asked wns A.
P. Garrett, superintendent of the Nettle L., of,Forguson, who has had very
extenoiyo experience in quartz mills in
the Black Hills, in southern Idaho, aud
othor places. Ho said, " Woll, yes, I
havo hud considorablo experience with
mills and also witli compressors. I did
not go over to Camborno in a critical
spirit, yot I was surprised at the excellent manner In which everything started. I have no hesitation in saying that
the mill is a good one,>und also that it
works lirst class. In fact, I have never
in all my experience seen a mill worlc
bettor. Everything as far as I can see
hus been perfectly planned, and the
workmanship and installation are just
as thoroughly cxecutod."
Wo beliove wo voice tho sentiments
of every man in tho Lardoau when wo
express our gratification with the way
things aro going at the Oystor-Critorion
mino, and wc believe the Great Northern .Mines havo in it a bonanza
property, and ono that will turn in
largo and frequent dividends to tho
fortunate shareholders. We wish, how-
over to add bofore closing this article,
our quota of commendation to thu ox-
cellont ability of Mr. A. G. Street, who
doslgned tho plant and installed the
machinery at the above mentioned mine
Wo will also back up Mr. Sutherland's
statement that the manager, Mr. Tool,
does seem to possess great powers of
discernment in judging mining properties, machinery, and last if not
least, men. Wo believe his judgment
of men has above everything olso beeu
tho means of his achieving th" almost
marvellous success that hm uttonded
his ellorts since lie begun his mining
operations in the Lardeau 10 years
since.

after being escorted to his chair, His
Honor tho Lieut-Governor re-entered
tho chamber and took his soat ou the

thanked the members for thu honor

then said:
Mr. Speaker: 1 am commanded by
His Honor the Lieut.-Governor to declare to you that he f.cely confides in
the duty and attachment of tho House
of Assembly to His Majesty's person
and government, aud not doubting that
thoir proceedings will bo conducted

cogniso aud allow, tbeir constitutional
privileges. I am commanded also to
assure you that the Assembly shall
have ready'access to His Honor upon
all seasonable occasion.:*, and that their
proceedings, as well as your words and
and actions, will constantly receive
from him tho most favorable
construction.
His Honor tho Lieu'..-Governor then
graciously delivered tiie following
speech:
"Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the
Legislative Assembly: i havo much
pleasure in wolcoming yon to tho first
session of the tenth parliament of British Columbia.
"Our financial afFalra demand most
earnest consideration on ;. our part, and
I appeal, with hope, to your patriotism
and your love for tho provinco whose
future destinies, under God, are in
your bauds. There is no reaosn why
British Columbia, with its great natural resources, should not occupy in tho
Dominion of Canada a position of which
wo may all bo justly proud.
"You havo therefore beon convenod
thus early in order that my finance
minister may be enabled to make -such
liseal arrangements as may bo necessary.
"Having In viow tha immediate requirements of tlio country and the favorable conditions for obtaining "a further loan in the Lov.dou market, you
will be asked to authorise tlio'lssue of
Treasury warrants extending ovor a
short period of years, and repayable in
annual installments,
" A considerable increase of revenue
each year will in consequence be neecs
sary, not only to meet ordinary expenditure, but to provide for the redemption
of warrants. Tho legislation proposed
will thercforo include a new Assessment
Act, and amendments to the Land Act,
tho Railway Assessment Act and the
School Act.
As part of tho plan of financial reconstruction, substantial economies iu the
civil servico have already been effected
| and material reductions in the expenditure on public works brought about.
I Theso will bo continued with a due rc-
[gard to the requirements of thc pro-
| vince,
: "My government has already taken
I up the proposed re-adjustmont of tiie
' financial relations between the province
��� and tho Dominion, as also tho question
of control of our fisheries and the rcgu-
llation of  alien   immigration*.    These
|subjects will bo earnestly and pcrsist-
jjently pressed to a settlement satisfactory to tho province.
j    "As a ro'sulfi of the recent decision in
the Alaska Boundary enquiry, a strong
feeliut--, exists iu favorof au all-Canadian
route into tho Yukon and   Northern
British Columbia, and my govornmont
i will co-oporato in any reasouabloefforts
i Whioh may bo made to bring about tiie
Iconstruction of suoh a railway.
j    " 1 am pleased to note the probability
lot thu construction, at an early date,
\. not only of another Canadian transcon-
| tlnental system having Its terminus on
���i thc Pacific ocean, but also of other important lines within our province.
"You wtll be pleai d to know thai
the Brit Ah Columbia Immigration Act
passed last session has beeu successful
iu excluding undesirablo .inraigrautj.

FRIDAY. DECEMBER *1, 1003.
EMINENTLY   SATISFACTOl-tY .
It will prove highly satisfactory
to many readers of the Eagle who
happen lo be shareholders in the
Great Northern Mines, Limited, to
peruse our first page article on thc
starting of the quartz mill, compressor and aerial tram at the
Oyster-Criterion mine, and the
splendid manner in which the machinery has been installed. This
event marks another mile post gained by this ever successful coterie o(
Lardeau mining operators who have
had to do with the formation of the
Great Northern Mines and who have
fostered lhe corporation through its
infancy, when all was outlay, wilh
nothing coming in to replenish the
treasury, and extensive development
was being carried forward.
It will be exceedingly gratifying
to these gentlemen in particular who
have repeatedly been forced to
plunge deeply into their pockets, to
enable lhe work ol mine making to
be continued until the tide turned
and gold began to flow the other
way. These gentlemen showed
courage, yet they had abundant confidence. So we say the good news
that the large and expensive plant,
whicli they saw fit to have installed,
works so satisfactorily will be mosi
gratifying, and it is news lhat they
deserve to get.
Again, it will I'o satisfactory to
these gentlemen and to the ordinary
shareholders as well, to learn that
the ore that -is being treated, from
the dumps, that showed so well under the assay test, is proving when
treated in bulk by the mill to give
even better results than the most
sanguine of the officials hoped for.
This is alter one week's mill run,
and figuring approximately what
gold was on thc plates.
PARLIAMENT IN SESSION.
The first Legislative Assembly lor
the province ot Hritish Columbia,
whose members were elected on
3 night parly lines, convened in the
council halls at Victoria on Thursday, Nov. a6.ll, Ho fat* as one can
Judge with accuracy up to this time,
the Conservative government, as
led by Hon. Richard McBride, will
be able to retain a majority [in the
house and to control the treasury
benches for the next four years. A
perusal of the speech from the
throne will reveal that the government has no pet hobbies in the
way. of legislation on the boards,
and no innovations are to be sprung,
at least nothing in the way of questionable measures. Judging by the
outline of the speech, itjfooks as it
the government was making an honest effort to improve conditions in
the province, and for this reason we
look to see the opposition lend every
assistance that can be expected.
A bill is before the house to authorise the issue of Treasury Warrants for immediate relief of the
country's bank credit. The speech
says among other things: "There
is no reason why British Columbia,
with its great natural resources,
should not occupy in the Dominion
of Canada a position of which we
may all be justly proud." That is
very true, and there is but one reason why the province does not today occupy that most enviable position ; that is on account of the
undoubted greed that characterized
many of the members of former legislatures. We all feel that under
the improved conditions the country's affairs will receive business-like
management, and we think a good
start has been made along this line.
It is most gratifying to observe
that the new government proposes
to deal at once with the condition
lhat has arisen which necessitates
the construction of an all rail route
to the Yukon country, for by taking
the initiative in this important mat*
ter great advantage will naturally
accrue to the province in having a
voice regarding the location of the
line and its terminals.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Memorandum and Articles of
Association for the Great Northern
Mines, Limited, which was printed
in the Eagle Job Department, has
been given much praise in all quarters. The Eagle always turns out
first class work, just as good as can
be done tn a city printing office.
The Daily Journal ot Edmonton,
ivhich makes two dailies for that
growing Alberta town, has reached
our exchange table. The Journal
takes the place and adopts the politics ol the late " Post," which is no
more. Conservatism should find a
ready and strong exponent in the
new daily.

The Kaslo Smelter
Tho Vancouver World of recent date
had an article discrediting tho Kaslo
smelter proposition. The writer took
pains to show why in his opinion tho
project was not feasible, and characterised reports to tho contrary as merely
hot nlt-. Tho party seemed to think it
absurd for a smelter to bo built in Kaslo that would have a larger treating
capacity than the Everett and other big
United States smelters. This merely
shows thc gross Ignorance of tho writer
regarding conditions and ore bodies in
the Interior of B C, for there aro single mines not far from Kaslo that have
sulllcient ore blocked out to keep tho
Everett smelter running constantly for
two years. The reason such mines aro
not shipping is because they are too far
from a smelter, and the rate for transportation and troatment would be too
great.
However, this matter .will bo dealt
with at greater length in a subsequent
issue, when we have more space at our
dlipoMl. '
