A Rich Copper Claim.
Messrs. Jones and McNeish have
five men at work on The Hidden Trail,
a valuable copper claim on .he Spilli-
michene mountain. There is a line
showing of ore on this claim, the vein
measuring 50ft. between walls ; 3 or 4
feet average from DO to 40 per cent
copper, and 20 feet averaging from 10
to 12 per cent, the balance being
gangue. From 10 to 12 tons of ore
are already on the dump and the owners intend . working all winter. The
claim is about 7 milcsdista.it from the
Columbia river, first class water power
nnd abundance of timber is to be had
close ac hand,
The property was visited last week
by Messrs. D. D. Mann and Win.
Mackenzie, who were highly pleased
with the prospects and have secured
an option on the claim till Dec. Tth.
An expert will be sent in to examine
the property and if he reports favourably one of the most important mining
deals in the history of the country
will probably be consummated. It is
the intention of the owners, however,
if no deal is made with Messrs. Mann
and Mackenzie, to greatly increase
their force of men and make a shipment of ore early in the spring. They
are to be commended for their pluck,
which will no doubt in due time be
amply rewarded.

and tlie residua ground with mercury
and a very little water, so as to make
a very thick paste. For some reason
however, which has not been fully
worked out, the yield is seldom higher
than if tbe concentrates ate amalgamated without being previously roasted. Doubtless much of the gold remains in ibe form of excessively thin
films, which are difficult io bring iu
contact with the mercury ; and if. as
is usually the case, the stuff is not
roasted quite "dead," the coatings of
ihe gold are formed to u greater extent
than before, and more harm is doue
than good.
At tlie   present   time   there are but
three methods iu use which can fairly
be held to apply   successfully  to large
classes of concentrates.    They are, the
treatment   by   smelting, by   roasting
and by   chlorination, and   by cyanide
solutions.    The first method is u little
difficult   to   apply,   for     a   smeltiug
establishment   requires   the su,.ply of
great   quantities of   several   different
kinds of ore, of which the concentrates
can only form one.      If large amounts
of   galena are   present, smelting, preceded by  preliminary   melting, is certainly the most satisfactory method j
but   except   in a   lew   localities, lead
smelting is   impossible, owing   to the
absence of   suitable ores, while pyritic
smelting, though   more widely applicable, is yet in its infancy.     A pyritic
smelter   would   doubtless   be u great
boon, but   no   single   outlying   ...ine
could look   forward to   setting up uue
unsupported.    Roasting and chluri.ui-
tiou is more hopeful, us even so small
a quantity as a few   tuns per week can
be treated iu this   way at u profit, and
us with smelting, the presence of large
quantities   of  either  copper,  zinc, or
lead is almost fatal to success, and the.
process   requires   some care and skill.
Finally, the  cyanide process, though
not applicable to some varieties o( concentrates, promises success in numerous cases.   The percentage of  extraction is usually good, but the decomposition cf   cyanide is  occasionally considerable, but   this   ...elhod  li.iS been
unable to   entirely  supplant chlorine*
trou with certain  classes of   material.
In conclusion, tho   maxim   mav  be
reiterated that in gold  mining no part
of   the   values   in   the ore should be
allowed to   escape   without   nn effort
being made to recover it.   Thu guld in
the concentrates   may   not umoii.it to
more than two or three per cent ol the
lutal quantity : but if it can bu obtained   easily   with   little cost by almost
automatic   machinery,  its   loss   may
make nil   tli*   difference  between success mnl   full tire, and   in
business, no profit is to be despised.���

From a legal standpoint, one of the
most prominent barristers in the city
is the authority that every claim is
illegally staked, some being under the
old and some under the new act, whilo
the specific demands of neither have
been fulfilled. The same gentleman
also affirms that each person who has
affected the landscape by driving iu
stakes is liable to arrest for perjury if
bo-and sometimes it is she -has recorded tbe claim, as they must have
sworn that tliere is gold, when it is
not known lor an absolute fact that
such exists ou the identical ground
How frequently mining companies
totally ignore the concentrates it. their
gold ores, and allow them to escape,
This is no do.ibt often due to the difficulties encountered in saving them,
and to fear lest the cost of efficient
machinery should prove to lie excessive
Nevertheless, it is probably still more
often owing to the belief (hat the concentrates could not be made to yield
the gold which tbey contain, even if
they were saved. Their refractory
nature is certainly a bar to prosperity
of many mines, and a careful consideration of how the pyritic material can
be most profitably handled is a most
important part of the duties of the
..lining engineer in charge.
The condition in which the gold
occurs in pi-rites has been much discussed by chemists and physicists, and
is perhaps stiH a moot point. It was
formerly supposed by the highest
authorities to be present ns a sulphide;
then it wns contended that, though
���iirnlly metallic, the Hold was dissolved
in the sulphides of the base metal, so
that its state ngt-regation wus one of
almost infinite fineness of division.
More recently it has been shown by
careful reseuichos that gold in pyrites
is entirely in the metallic form, and
occurs in extremely thin plates gilding
thc faces of the crystals of sulphides
of iron ami other base metal compounds
It has been likened to the mo.t-r in a
brick wall, the bricks representing tbe
crystals of pyrites ami the mortar
being the gold, but the whole being ou
so small a scale in nature that tbe
edges of the gold films can with difficulty lie obsericd with the aid of a
most powerful microscope
This fact as to' the usual condition
of gold in pyrites must bo borne in
mind when the problem ol how to get
it out is faced in particular cases

San Francisco, Nov. 1.���Theodore
Durrant, was to-day convicted of the
murder of Blanch Lnniont fur which
be has been un trial since July 22nd
lust. The jiir-' was out 20 minutes
and arrived at the verdict on the first
ballot. As there was no recommendation to mercy the punishment was
lixed at death.
The scene in the court rouin when
the verdict was announced will never
befurgot.en by those who were present. Judge Murphy finished his charge
at 3.30 and the jury at once retired,
Although there was supposed to be
little prospect, of a verdict being returned liefore 8 or !> o'clock this evening the throng of spectators who had
remained iu tbe overcrowded court
room all the afternoon to hear the
Judge's charge, settled tbeinsehes
back iu their seats to await the return
of the jury. Mrs. Durrant and the
prisoner talked and laughed as if un
acquittal were a foregone conclusion.
They were surrounded by half-a-dozen
friends and the ouversation was animated when it became whispered about
that the jury had agreed upon a verdict. In uu instant a hush Fell upon
the little circle that bud gathered
around the prisoner. Durrani's face,
always pallid, assumed u ghastly hue
and his mother wns Speechless. The
door ut the rear ol the room opened

When ihe gold is in the main locked

except by the few wbo sat nearest
them. As tbe last words cf the verdict were uttered, Durrani, made a
spasmodic effort lo arise to his feet.,
but before he could do su, bis mother
with a half sigh, half groan, threw
her arms around his neck and sank
back into her chair. His mother's
grief seemed to make Durrant forget
his own position, and for the next few
minutes he sat with his arms around
her neck, trying to soothe her. The
long strain of the trial, however, had
completely shattered her self control,
and it was some lime before .Mrs. Durrant could leave the court room, Dur-
rant's father was not in the room
when the verdict was returned. As
soon as tbe Jury retired ho went out
into the corridors, not believing that
the jury would return fur several
hours, and he first learned that his
sou had been convicted when a cheer
went up from the crowd in the buihl-
ing as the news spread.
Durrant recovered 'lis old-time composure us soon us he left his mother
nnd prepared to return to the County
Jail. With his overcoat swung carelessly over his arm, be walked leisurely out of the room, twirling his slight
moustache with apparently as little
concern as if he were merely a spectator, instead of the principal tiguru in
the exciting scone. Aside from the
spectators. Mr-. Noble lilanch La-
niont's aunt, and Maul Luinuiit, the
dead girl's sister, were apparently the
nippiest perspns in the room. When
lhe verdict was announced, Maud La-:
inont arose from her seat, ciasped her
hands, and then cried of sheer excitement. Mrs. Noble mixed smiles with
tears, and shook bauds with a number
of friends who crowded round to congratulate her.
As soon ns Durrant left the building
the crowd surged out of lhe room uinl
gathered around tlie door out of which
the prisoner usually came to reach tbe
prison van. Fearing that some violence ..light be offered io the prisoner,
l.e wus taken out of another door aim
driven by u circuitous route to the
County Jail.
The ense will be appealed Io the
Supreme Court, and it is expected
nearly a year will ellipse before a decision will he obtained. While it is
not thought thut any error bus been
committed, the defence has embraced
every opportunity io take exceptions
to ibe ruliugs of the Court. General
Dickinson took exception to three
features of the District Attorney's
argument to-day.- He also took an
exception to  the charge of  the Judge.
A Hint from Furls.
Lady cyclists who affect what is
called rational dress, alias knickerbockers, may take n hint from whut is
taking place in Paris. A rumor was
spread recently that the Prefect of
Police intended to issue an order prohibiting women from wearing masculine attire within the fortification".
Hearing ol this, the professors of tlio
great teaching institutions have presented il petition to M. Lepine, praying
him not to make bis order imperative
in   the   Latin   Quarter.    The   reason
Itainlliis returned bore, bringing the
first authentic news of the result ot his
mission, The King of Ashantee ro*
jeirted the British ultimatum. Tho
King snyu lie prefers war to accepting
the terms of the Hritish and adds that
he is fully prepared for it. The terms
of tht British ultimatum were that
the king should have a British commissioner i�� his country and that he
should place Ashantee under tho protection of Great Britain. He had
until io-diiv iri which to reply. A
strong force of Imperial and native
troops is now to be despatched to Coo-
massie to bring the king to terms.
Sir Francis Scott, inspector-general
of tlio Gold Coast force, now in England, will leave for West Africa as
soon as possible to organize the expen-
ditionnry forces which are expected to
begin to advance by the middle of
December. In tbe meantime troops
will be sent here from Lagos and other
places. A strong body of Hussars
will take part in the expedition.

The ciitcrtainment. in aid of the
Presbyterian Church, Donald, which
took place on Hallowe'en night was a
decided success, and those who had it
in band must have felt satisfied.
Every chair in the Oddfellows Hall
was occupied. The chairman, Mr.
Colquhoun, was in n happy mood nnd
carried out the programme without a
hitch. Space will nut permit ns to go
over tho lengthy programme, making
special mention of choruses, etc.,
which were all admirably rendered.
In instrumental music, Miss Walker
gave n piano solo which wns so well
received that she had to respond to an
encore. The violinists Messrs. Jordan,
Sumner, Macpherson and Mncpherson,
and Messrs. Ciithereto and Behan on
the harmonica, liisconrsed sweet music
through the evening, every number ol
whicli was well received. Mr. Foster
sang '-Sailing" in good form and was
heartily encored nnd responded by
singing 'The Midshipniite." Mrs.
Glassford sang "Maids ol Lee" which
was illustrated, Mrs. Manuel playing
the accompaniment. The young maids
Miss Smith, Miss Newman mid Miss
Hart looked charming, (tbo lovers in
the background) and Mrs. Mitchell,
Mrs. Palmer, and Mrs. Latvson made
excellent old maids. Mr. Sellar*. sang
tbe '-Roll of lhe Drum" and being recalled sang u comic Scotch song. Mr.
Glassford gave a recitation "Mary
Queen of Scots," ami sang " Come
under my Plaidio." The quartette,
'���Sweet and Low," by Mrs. Manuel.
Mrs. Foster, nnd Messrs. Foster nnd
Glassford was sweetly and feelingly
rendered. "The Smith Sisters," tine,
handsome, talented nnd gorgeously
decorated young Indies, Miss Smith,
Mrs. Foster, Miss Newman and Miss
Hart, each a particular star representing Poetry, Painting, Music and Song,
allowed plainly what she did not excel
iu. Miss lirownrigir, of Golden,
touched the hearts of the audience liy
relating the pathetic story ol "Hostler
Joe," and is assured of a warm welcome any time she mny visit us. The
evening's entertainment was brought
lo n close by the singing ol '-God Save
the Queen."
Mr. W. A. Carlyle, M.E., lecturer
in mining at Mi-Gill College, is understood to have declined the position of
Government mining engineer offered to
bim by the Hon. tlm Minister of Mines
fur British Columbia. This is an important appointment, and in view of
the great progress being im.de in Ihe
milting of lhe precious metals in that
province wc trust political i.u'nonce
will not bo brought to bear in the interest of any applicant lor the position
but that a first class metalliferous
engineer with a thoroughly practical
experience in mining and milling will
be secured. Of course, first-class men
cannot be secured for nothing, but th��
expenditure of n few thousand dollars
per annum on a live Mining Inspector
will prove in the long run money well
invested in the interests of the province.���Canadian Mining Review.
