Some Points on a Metallurgical
Triumph. ���
Oan Be Worked on a Small or Large
'    Soale���Will Bust the Smelter Trust.
If from the multifarious metallurgical patents, devices and processes perfected during the'last ten years we were
asked to select the most meritorious
and the one most likely to have a far-
reaching and beneficial effect upon the
mining industry, we should without
hesitation declare for the lately introduced Vulcan smelting and refining
furnace, a furnace which in the short
space of a year has not only completely
overcome the usual prejudice with
which any departure from accepted
methods is received, but which has in
addition gained enthusiastic commendations from the most conservative of
tho old style smelter men. Recent
mention has been made of the phenomenal results being obtained by this
furnace, from ores hitherto considered
aB undesirable for smelting purposes,
the smelting costs ranging from 35 pec
cent, to GO per cent, below the cost of
smelting ln tho latest tuyere furnaces*, I
and the recovery being an average of
98 per oent. and higher of precious
metals and coppor in ore, tho products
ranging from 60 per cent, copper in
mattes to 96 per cent copper pig.
When it 1b considered that fully one-
third of tbe gold, two-thirds of the silver and every pound of the industrial
metals aB copper, lead, iron, etc, (the
single exception being aluminum) produced annually are recovered from the
ores by smelting, it may be conceived
the vital importance attaching to the
introduction of a furnace having a wide
range of duty, simple in construction,
rapid in its action, economical in fuel
and labor and readily manipulated by
unskilled labor.
In the construction and manipulation
of the Vulcan furnace the discovery of
no new physical or chemical laws is
asserted. It is a smelting furnace, us-
, ing oreB, fluxes, fuel and air as other
smelting furnaces and governed in its
action by the same immutable laws,
Its increased efficiency lying in Its ex-
extreme simplicity and the novel, as
well as scientific, application of a new
method of carrying out the old laws.
Smelting is a chemical process.
Proper proportions of basic ores, as
iron, lime, etc., are mixed with certain
acid ores as silica, etc., and these are
charged into a furni.ce witb a sufficiency of fuel (carbon), The fuel is
ignited, air Is forced in to aooellerate
the chemical action known as "combustion," the air gives up its oxygen, as
do the metallic oxides in the ore, to
unite with tho Carbon and form carbonic oxides and acid gates. The
energetio union of the oxygen with the
carbon creates an Intense beat, which
acting upon tho basic iron and lime
and the acid silica oauses their dislnte*
gration, and recombination into the
complex product known as "stag,"
thru which, by reason of their greater
specific gravities, the metallic or semi
metalllo coppor and lead, carrying the
preolous metals, settle into tbe cruoible
beneath, to be drawn of! into mounds.
If the air is heated before entering the
furnace greater chemical activity results, economizing fuel and smelting a
greater quantity of ore In a given time.
Sulphides and arsenides must be oxidized before their metalllo contents
oan be recovered, by smelting in any
form but as a very low-grade matte or
spelss, either of which will require expensive and tedious after treatment to
recover tbeir values.
The tuyere furnace, now in common
use, is confined to tho reduction of ores
carrying tbe oxides and carbonat��s of
tbe various metals.   The lower part or
base of the furnace Is the "crucible"
for collecting the metals, whioh filter
thru the slag.   A few inches above the
crucible the shell of tbe furnace Is
pierced  with a series of equidistant
openings to reoelve the tuyere pipes,
thru which air is forced into the furnace under high pressure by a powerful
positive blower.   Between eaoh tuyere
there Is a "dead space" in which partially smelted ore tends to hang and
form the nucleus from which heavy
mosses extend into the furnace, checking its action and necessitating a periodical stoppage of operations; while
the furnace is opened to remove the
caked ore, the result of which opening
is to cool the furnace and cause an appreciable loss of time, fuel and labor.
As, from its construction, it is not possiblo to economically reduce raw sulphides or arsenides io such a furnace,
these ores must undergo a preliminary
roasting" In specially built roasting
furnaces to partially oxidlsse away their
sulphur or arsenic.  When tbe crucible
of suoh a furnaoe needs renewing the
furnace must be "blown out," allowed
to cool off and remain idle many days
until the new crucible lining is tamped
in and dried.   The lost time, together
with tbe waste of labor "and fuel" in
blowing In" and "blowing out," adds
materially to the smelting cost of the
ores treated in suoh furnaces.
Now any construction of furnace
which will permit of rapid adjustment
of blast to the demands of the ore being treated; which will eliminate the
blowers, with their concomitant engine
power, skilled mechanics, line shafting, pulleys, belts, expensive system of
air pipes; which will smelt oxidized,
carbonized, sulphide or arsenide ores
with equal, facility: which requires no
extensive and costly roasting furnaces
in'which to prepare the sulphide ores
for- smelting; whioh has the effective
hot blast as en Inherent feature; which
wllll economize fuel by utilizing the
beat units created by the oxidation of
the raw sulphides or arsenides wben
beta--** smelted, (these heat units being
a totnl loss where the oros have been
previously roasted); which will permit
of the crucible being repaired without
checking operations, as in the present
tuyere furnaces; and, finally, which will
occupy but a fraction of the area under
cover demanded by tuyere furnace
plants tif equal capacities; which, aside
from virtues peculiar to itself, will
have all the merits of the tuyere furnace, with none of its defects;such a
furnace will certainly bo welcomed by
the mine owner and metallurgist,

Word was received here during the
week that C. W. McCrossan had secured an option on the Triune fi*om the
Ferguson Bros. This practically, means
that Mr. McCrossan- will become the
lucky owner of this famous property.
We understand that it ts the purchaser's intention to put the Triune in with
the Metropolitan, thus giving that
company oontrol of a promising prospect and a developed mine. When we
take into consideration that the tame
men who are interest in this purchase
practically control the Vulcan smelter
lately erected in Ferguson, we can see
at a glance tho importance of this
news to the district in general and
Ferguson in particular. This purchase
will practically assure Mr. McCrossan
of unlimited supplies of tho highest j
grade ore with which to run his smelter and when tho other mine owners
of the district seo that tho smelter
treats Triune ore successfully they will
cease to regard it as an experiment and
will be only too jjldd to dispose of their
ore to the Lardoau Smelting and Refining Company.
It is noe'dless for us to dwell on the
merits of tbe Triune as an ore producer.
Its fame haa traveled to the uttermost
parts of the earth. Tho Slocan which
was famous as a grass-root producer,
had nothing to compare with it in richness and extent of ore bodies. The
few hundred tons whioh havo been
taken out of the property have only
gone to prove its value aB a producer.
As a mine it is practically untouched
and has every appearance of being
able to produce more oro each month
for,years to come than the total shipments up to date.
Thftt.purchase will moan active development of the mine as the shareholders will soon find out they have a
big dividend payer and will undoubtedly be anxious to secure all tho profit
they can from thoir investment.

In a world filled with millions and
millions of acres of land waiting to be
filled, when one man can raise food for
hundreds, yet millions are on the edge
of famine, Who can comprehend the
stupidity at the bottom of this truth?
Is there to be no change?
Are the laws of "supply and do-
mand," invention and soience, monopoly and competition, capital and legislation always to be the enemies of
thoso who toilj Will the workers always be ignorant and stupid enough to
give their ea'fnings to the useless? Will
they support millions of soldiers to kill
boos of other, workmen? Will they always build temples,jind live in dens
themselves? Will they ever allow
parasites and vampires to live on their
blood? Will they remain the slaves of
the beggars they support? Will honest
men stop taking off their hats to successful frauds? Will industry in presence of crowned idleness forever fall
upon its knees, and will tbe lip's unstained by lies forever kiss the robbers' and impostors' hands? Will they
understand that beggars cannot be
generous, and that every healthy man
must earn tbe right to live? Will they
finally say that the man who has had
the privileges with all others has no
right to complain, or will they follow
the example set by their oppressors?
Will they learn that force, to succeed,
must have thought behind It, and that
everything done, must rest on justice?

An impression seoms to prevail in
certain eastern Canadian centres, unfortunately fostered by a number of

Poorest Paid and Most Abused.
The most abused man in the ranks of
organized labor is he who tries tp better the condition of his fellow workers.
It does not matter how sincere he Is, or
whether he Is paid for the time ho
loses; and it is often the case that the
man who does the most work iu this
line is the less thanked, not to say paid.
Employers call him an agitator, and
assert if it were not for him they
could hire cheaper help. Employers
do not stop to think that the poorest
paid people in the land to-day are the
officers of the labor organizations. If
some of tbem had to do tho work gratis
that is performed by good and true
union men they would throw up tlieir
hands in holy horror. -The conservative labor agitator is a bonefaotor. It
is through hi.3 efforts that fair wages
and short hours are granted; it is he
who fights the battles of his many followers, and It is he who is first dl-
charged when occasion requires a laying oft' or a reduetion of expenses. He
is a bold, bad man���In tbe eyes of the
employer. And yet this same agitator
may have a large family to support,
and tho time ho loses Is his own loss.
A labor organization without an agitator might as well not exist. Tho men
who stump the corridors of the legislative halls looking after labor legislation are also dubbed agitators. What
should you call the well paid lawyers
who look after the interests of corporations around tbe capital? They are
not agitators. Oh, no! They must be

There   is    nothing   "academic1
about the Globe's system of extending the principle of private ownership of railways, says the Toronto
Telegram.      Private ownership of
railways in Canada always implies
public   ownership   of    the   money
which builds these railways.    Public ownership of the money which
builds railways ought to imply a
permanent   public   interest in   the
ownership of these railways.    Private ownership ot railways-and public ownership of the, money which
builds   these railways  are an   ill-
matched pair.    The insane, wicked
folly of the Laurier system is that
the country must largely pay the
cost of building the railways which J
political favorites can then sell to
the highest bidder from New York
or elsewhere.    That fine old story
system of  using public funds   to
build railways for private benefit did
not originate with the Globe or its
leader.     Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier  has
merely carried that evil system to
lengths which it could never have
reached   without   the   approval of
Ontario liberalism.   The Telegram
continues that public ownership of
the Crow's Nest pass line and the
Mackenzie-Mann line from Winnipeg to Lake Superior would have
put the C. P. R. on its good behavior nnd made control of the C.
P. R, useless  to any United States
"community of interest."   The people owned  the   land,  money  and
credit which built these roads.   The
people   could    have   owned   these
roads also if they had not listened
to the Globe's chatter  about the
beauties of a far-off railway commission.   The country's first duty
was to stand up for the' easily applied principle that public ownership
of lhe money which builds railways
shall imply public ownership of the
railway which is created by the expenditure of that money.

Betting is running high and now

The Socialist Leage here misses the

"Sooialism Is organized eo-o peration,"
is tho latest definition of the cult. If
that be so, then Socialism has achieved
a wonderful victory in England, where
the organized co-operativo system has
attained marvelous proportions. There

the figures and facts published, that
co-operation there has been successfully
managed.���Ladysmith Leader.

���The St. Louis "Mirror" says: "The
development of the consolidation idea
renders all protest against ultimate Socialism futile and foolish."
Private monopoly of natural resources, of social functions, or of the
indispensable utilities of produotion, is
the enemy of freedom, and tho inevitably the result of competition, must not
be permitted to remain as a permanent
form of society. Neither will it remain;
it is as certain to go and be succeeded
by the next great economic stage in
human history���Socialism���as individual production has been destroyed by
the capitalistic mastery over machinos.

The Portland "Oregonian" says:
Socialism is in the air.   It has conquered the ranks of labor  and permeated tlie schools of learning."
Tbe Boston "Daily Post," after discussing the trust outlook, remarks:
"What is to come of all this? It is one
more long step towards Socialism,"
A soft answer may be tbe steam from
