that Work oa Dock Will Begin
soon.
Surveys for the Portland Canal Railway and Terminal Co. which was organized to build a line up Salmon
River Valley have been completed.
P. A. Jenns is in charge of this work.
It is understood that the line goes up
the left side of the river for a considerable distance, and crosses and re-
crosses where gradient advantage may
be taken.
The promoters of the undertaking
are reported to have decided to locate
the railway dock on the left side of the
mouth of Salmon River where there is
deep water. Surveys are being made
for the trackage facilities required at
this point. It is reported at Hyder,
where much iuterest in the project is
being taken especially, that work on
the dock is to begin soon.
The townsite at Eleven Mile, which
is to be the terminus of the railroad as
planned thus far,, is being platted and
preparations are being made in accordance with the company's plans.
INCREASE CREW ON ROAD.
The power boat Nora, from Prince
Rupert, brought fourteen men on Tuesday to add to the gang on the ore
highway between Stewart and the
boundary. The gang now numbers 50
men and more can be used. Fine pro-

IN SOLDIERS' INTERESTS.
R. O'Hanley, of Vancouver, representing the Soldiers Civil Re-establishment Commission, spent a week in
Stewart and returned to Prince Rupert
on Tuesday. During his stay here he
talked things over with the returned
men. The majority of returned soldiers here are employed  on  ri-adwork.
REPAIRING APPROACH.   .
New planks to replace broken ones
in the long approach to the wharf were
put in this week under the direction of
the provincial public works department. Although the repairs are but
temporary they nevertheless are welcome and lessen the danger to traffic.
As a matter of fact the entire approach needs replanking and fixing
generally. During this week a heavy-
load of lumber for the Bitter Creek
bridge went through. No damage except to the planking resulted.

AN EXPLANATION OF FLOTATION PROCESSES.
VERY successful demonstration and concise explanation of the
theory and practice of Flotation, the greatest metallurgical
process perfected since the practical application of Cyanidation,
was that given by Professor J. M. Turnbull, head of the Mining Department of the University of British Columbia, at the Vancouver
Chamber of Mines lecture courses. Professor Turnbull began bis
address with a short summary of the history of Flotation, which in
the first thirty years of its development was subjected to an unusual
amount of litigation, in consequence of which many radical changes
were made in the method of operation.
In the old water concentration processes it had been found in
practice that in order to separate the valuable mineral from the
gangue a fairly fine grinding was essential. As the valuable mineral
is usually much softer than the gangue the result was that much of
it was reduced to such a fine slime that it floated away and was lost
in the tailings. The principle of Flotation was therefore welcomed
by metallurgists as filling a long felt want, but the first efforts to
niak" the method commercially successful were not at all encouraging; in fact it was only about three years ago that the process was
dually pronounced a success.
One of the ilrst companies to investigate the Flotation process
was the Britannia Mining & Smelting Company, to whom great
credit is due for their perseverance in experiments which extended
over a considerable length of time. When success finally came the
results were beyond the expectations of the most optimistic.
Whereas in the old water concentration methods a 65% or 70'/f
extraction of the ore values was considered very good, flotation gave
as high as 95%, showing on an average an increase of 207. in the
saving of (he metal. So successful has the process become that
practically within the last three years the amount of ore treated
thereby has reached a yearly total of fifty million tons.
One of the prime movers in the Flotation Process was Francis
E. Elmore, who developed what was known as the Bulk Oil Process.
It is regrettable that Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines, could not
spend more time in this district.
Though he saw a lot, there is much
more that could have been seen to advantage by a man in his position. But
it was no fault of the minister, whose
launch went wrong and caused him to
lose a day. However, he did not let
the grass grow under his feet. Horses
were waiting to take him up Salmon
River Valley where a great deal of activity was seen. It is too bad the entire cabinet could not have come
along. The minister of mines, for all
he keeps closely in touch with development, saw enough to more than open
his eyes. No pen picture ever made
will convey as true a picture as the
real thing. Hon. Mr. Sloan had studied
his engineers'reports and heard much This consisCed in the addition to the ore and water mixed a quantity
about the Salmon  River section.   But| of '"' "f a ���SDecial gravity sufficiently less than water to float on the
water and carry within it th" valuable mineral. The two liquids
were then separated in a very ingenious machine, and the oil was
centrifuged and recovered from the sulphides and used again. This,
however, was found to be too costly for commercial purposes.
After much experimentation new theories were developed, ami
il. was eventually found that the buoyancy of the oil had no direct
bearing on the process. In fact, it is now established that whereas
as much as a ton and a half of oil had been used with every ton of
ore, one-third of a pound to one pound of oil with each ton of ore
gave infinitely better results.    .
It has been found that oil will stick to bright metallic particles
such as galena or copper pyrites in preference to quartz or other
gangue material, and by a violent agitation  of a  mixture*of,  for
closes astonnding possibilities.     And| example, galena and quartz in the presence of a very small quantity
of oil and three to five times as much water, the oil will coat the
valuable sulphides but not the quartz. The agitation mixes in small
air bubbles from the atmosphere, which have a strong affinity for
oily surfaces, and it is these air bubbles which act as balloons and
raise the sulphides to the surface.
One of the first successful machines was that introduced by the
Mineral Separation Company, which was known as the Mechanical
Agitation Froth Type. A working model of this type was exhibited
hy the lecturer. In this machine the agitation was obtained by means
of a propeller on a vertical shaft, revolving at about 1500 revolutions
per minute in the mixture of ore. oil and water. The ore used in
the lecturer's demonstration, which was very successful, was a
mixture of quartz and galena. Tb.9 oil consisted of two drops of
a frothing oil, such as pine tar or creosote, and two or three drops
of a collecting oil such as coal tar. The concentrate obtained was
very high-grade, while the tailings were nearly all white quartz.
Such successful results will not always be obtained at the first
test. Sometimes hundreds of tests have to be made before the most
satisfactory oil, the quantity of oil, and the proper dilution of the
pulp are determined.
Of the many other Flotation machines invented the only really
distinctive type that has become of commercial importance is the
Callow Pneumatic Machine, which the lecturer described. In this
apparatus the agitation and air bubbles are supplied to the oil, ore
and water mixture by means of oompressed air blown through a
trough having a canvas or porus bottom. The air rising through
the oiled sulphides adheres to them, raising them In the surface of
the liquid, whore tbey overflow into collecting troughs. This machine possesses the advantage nf less wear and tear, and less installation ooet.
A very striking experiment was made by the lecturer by putting
the galena and quartz into an ordinary fruit jar with the neeesaar?
water and two drops of each of Ihe two oils. This was then agitated
with a Dover egg beater, and a strong persistent froth consisting
uf practically pure galena was thus obtained. This illustrated hov
good*results might be obtained by the amateur experimenter in
very simple mill inexpensive way.
The lecturer then explained in a \ery concise manner the more
commonly aocepted theories as i" ih" reason why the nil Bhotild
attach itself to the sulphides, and why the sulphides should keep

ore ami the water.    Profwaor Turnbull alao showed Imw
what he saw was the real thing. Mr.
Sloan had heard that the Premier was
a great mine. What he saw was a
greater mine than had been described
to him. As a matter of fact it is
doubtful if anything so big was ever
discovered before. Some mining men
compare the Premier with the Corn-
stock. Others make stronger statements in favor of the Premier. An
examination  of    the  great  mine dis-
when one attempts to estimate the
value of the mine from probable ore
tonnage the figures are more than astounding. The minister inspected the
mine with particular satisfaction by
reason of being the head of the Department of Mines. His inspection of other
properties in that section was similarly
enightening. The possibilities of the
Big Missouri, Joker, Forty-nine, Bush,
etc., th.' minister can now appreciate.
But the government to do its share
in the winning of this new wealth must
extend the present wagon rrau which
the Premier people are building
through Alaska territory, to get to
their mine. Hon. Mr. Sloan was impressed by the needs of the district and
out of his trip there will undoubtedly
arise the desired improvements. Had
the minister not been delayed on his
trip he could have spent a day in the
Bear River section to good advantage.
Sound development is taking place and
the results justify the faith of the
owners. This section also need* the
aid of the Government. It is hoped I
the minister can find time to return
again this season.

WAGES GO UP AT
SMELTERS
Sliding  Scale   Makes   Pay
Good as  Copper
Ascends.
ANOTHER VIEW OF STEWART
Copper mine workers' wages
at Anyox and other camps operating under the gliding scale of
wages since last March, have
taken a $2 per day raise since
that date. The latest increases
in wages, amounting to fifty
cents per day have been posted
at the Granby company, tha red
metal having gradually risen in
two weeks from seventeen cents
to twenty-one cants per pound
in that time.
Copper producers are looking
forward to a market approximating twenty-six cants or to evan
a higher figure as soon as foreign orders are received in the
general reconstruction plan of
tha European countries which
have been at war.
