THE MINING OUTLOOK
A    Large   Increase    in   the
Output.
THE   SHIPMENTS   INCREASING
Rapidly   and   a Number  of Mines
are Nearing the Shipping
Stage.
Last week the Miner made the assertion that its increase ir size is due to
the improved business and mining outlook. In order to conclusively demonstrate that there is in the district an
"improved business and mining outlook," a comparison will bere be made
between the condition of the mining and
smelting industries as they are today
and that obtaining twelve months ago.
And the contrast may first be made in a
few short sentences exhibiting the
total tonnage of ore shipped from the
district mines and treated at district
smelters as at May 31 of last year and as
at the present time respectively. By
May 31 of last year less than 3,000 tons
of ore had been shipped from the district; today tbe aggregate of ore shipped
exceeds 230,000 tons. Twelve months
ago not a single ton of ore had been
smelted in the district; today the total
of ore treated at district smelters exceeds 185,000 tons, whilst more than 43,-
000 tons of Boundary ore has been reduced at outside smelters. Add tbe
statement that twelve months ago there
were onlv about 000 men regularly employed in connection with the mining
and smelting industries of the district,
while today there are at least 1,000, and
the tale of progress is briefly told.
But at such time as this, when tbe
district is surely, though it may be
slowly, emerging from the period of reaction that inevitably followed tbe completion of railway building and the cessation of other large expenditures of
money, bringing for the time a degree of
prosperity that was necessarily, from its
nature, but temporary, it is perhaps
well to more closely analyse the reason
for "tbe faith that is in us," that iB of
course the faith in the improved and
still improving conditions that, today
mark our progress, and that warrant
the business men of tbis town, the
metropolis of the Boundary district, in
"loosening up" a little, and in anticipating a returning prosperity, based not
upon tbe uncertain foundations of a
temporary enlargement of the number
of men employed in tbe district, but
upon a steadily increasing pay roll giving every reasonable indication of permanence. And herein lies the secret of
the large measure of success that has
hitherto attended tbe building up of
Greenwood���its business men and its
public institutions have alike known
when to "take occasion by the hand"
and so to benefit both individually and
collectively from the exercise of a characteristic public spirRedness that recognizes opportunity and takes advantage
of it.
Going then into detail, and viewing
the situation from the standpoint of the
business center of the Boundary district,
it is here insisted that the local mining
und smelting industries were never
more nourishing than now, nor were
tbey at any previous time so full of
promise of increased activity and consequent large results us at the present
time. Measuring the importance of
what may justly he designated the producing mines of the district by their
output, and taking them in the order of
their present average daily tonnage, the
conditions attending the operation today of the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill
group, the Mother Lode and the B. C.
mines, may with u lively sense of satisfaction be contrasted with the circumstances surrounding their development
a year ago. Then, the Old Ironsides
group had not shipped a single ton of
ore, nor was it as extensively equipped
with machinery and plant as it is today.
Now, its aggregate of ore shipped to the
smelter is about 152,000 tons and preparations are being made to greatly enlarge its plant and general equipment
and to within three or lour months
double ils output, hy increasing its
daily tonnage from (iOO tons to 1,200
tons. Last, year at this time this growing enterprise was widely regarded very
much as an experiment, the success of
which was, to say the least of  it,  prob
lematical ; tbis year the statement reported to have lately been made by the
general manager of the Miner-Craves
mines to the effect that the new plant
to be put in by his cumpany, with accompanying improvements, will probably have cost in the neighborhood of
$250,000 by the time it is completed, is
accepted as a matter of course, so substantial has been tbe progress made by
tbe associated companies concerned in
this great enterprise during the past
year and so well have they thereby
earned the confidence of the people of
the district. And concurrent with
these preparations for greatly enlarged
operations at its mines is the corresponding enlargement of the company's
reduction works at Grand Forks, than
which when the additional furnaces, the
copper converter, the increased power-
generating plant, and other appliances
to be put in during the next ensuing
four or five months, shall have been installed, and put into running order,
there will exist in the province no more
modern or complete reduction works,
and not only in the province but probably, so far as copper smelting is concerned, in the whole Dominion.
Next is the British Columbia Copper
company's enterprise, in which, for
the reason of the close proximity of the
company's works to the city, Greenwood is more directly interested.
Though of later and less extensive development than the mines of the Miner-
Graves companies, the Mother Lode
mine is one of the largest and most important, mines in the district.    Like the
���will bring to the town more trade and
accompanying commercial importance
as a producing center.
The operations of the B. C. mine,
though on a somewhat smaller scale
than those of the mines already dealt
with, have been, and still are of substantial benefit to tbe district. This
mine was lirst in the district to maintain a regular output of ore, having
commenced shipping in January of last
year, whilst the Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill group did not commence until the
following July, and tbe Mother Lode
until October. True, its monthly output during the five months ended May
31, 1900, was a very modest one, having
totalled only 2,522 tons for the whole
period, yet it served a very useful end,
since it took away the reproach previously attaching to the district, viz.,
that with all its claims to importance
it had not yet com raenced to give any
return for capital expended. With this
small total shipment of twelve months
ago may now be contrasted the aggregate the B. C. has sent out to this date,
about 38,000 tons. Here, too, operations
are on a scale that promises a gradually
enlarging output, and one that will contribute Its quota to the upbuilding of
the mining industry in the Boundary
district.
Turning now to properties that are
not classed among the regular ore producers of the district, there are several
that are much nearer the stage of continuous shipment than they were twelve
months since. The Snowshoe, for instance,   is  now  known  to possess large
its  manager  in   claiming  for it that it
will   shortly   he   mi   the shipping  list,
whilst its neighbor, the  Blue   Bell,  mm
has an excellent showing of  ore  at   UIU
feet depth,  in  contrast  to its u ll prospected condition of this time  last   year,
and the prospect that it  will  shortly be
equipped witli a power plant for furl her
development,    The   recent   resumption
of  work on   the Rathmullen company's
Maple   Leaf  claim,  after  a long period
during which nothing was done on  il, is
' one more indication of progress,   whilst'
] the Rambler, farther north, has latterly
improved to an extent that is attracting .
I the attention of outside capitalists  to il
I as a desirable property lo get hold of.
Last  week  the   Miner published   full
particulars of the Jewel group, iu   Long I
Lake  camp,  and  this  week  it  has the
pleasure of announcing that instructions
have heen received lo  resume   work on
that property.   Mere, again, is a reason
for confidence in the outlook, for this
resumption of work is a result of a conference between the mine manager and
his directors, to fully advise whom upon
the position and prospects of the property the manager a few weeks  ago went \
i to  England.    The Jewel, as was shown ;
J last week, has had a deal of development
work done on it, and so much gold-
quartz ore  has been blocked out in   ils
' workings that mining engineers of good
standing have not hesitated to regard
it as a prospective early dividend-payer.
. It is well known that the putting in of a
stani]i mill and the installation of a
plant for cyanide or other suitable
chemical treatment of the ore vim some

Old Ironsides and Knob Hill group it
has been considered of sufficient importance to have been tbe subject of a
special article in the New York Engineering and Mining Journal, the leading
in in ing publication in Hie western hemisphere. Twelve months ago this mine
had not sent any ore to the smelter, nor,
save a few car loads sent, out for test
purposes, did it commence to ship until
last October, and then only on a comparatively small scale. Today its shipments average about 350 Ions daily with
an early increase to at least 400 tons
per diem being prepared for. Last year
though amply equipped for development
purposes, its plant was much smaller
than that now in use at the mine, which
is the largest yet installed iu the Boundary country. Here too mining on a
greatly enlarged scale is being prepared
for, while tbe company's smelter is to
have its treatment capacity doubled ere
the current yoar closes and a copper converter is to be added to its plant, Tbis
smelter is another substantial evidence
of progress and one that is materially
enhancing the prosperity of (ireenwood.
Started only three mouths ago it has already treated with a single furnace 83,-
000 Ions of ore, and the manager of the
works claims that this furnace has made
a world's record for copper smelting.
I Whether this he so or not matters little;
i il is sufficiently encouraging to thr busi-
| ness men of (ireenwood to know that it
is a successful and permanent industry
and one that as it grows���as grow it must
bodies of ore, the existence of which was
not proved a year ago.     Further, recent
advices indicate that arrangements only !
in   contemplation last   vear have lately
been consummated, and that as a result
I this mine is to be adequately equipped,
so as to allow of its being  made to  put
; otij  a comparatively  large quantity  of
'ore. Then there are the Brooklyn, Idaho
and   Rawhide, of the Dominion Copper
company's  group also  in   Groenwood
camp. All three of these Here idle
twelve months Since; now they are together employing between SO and 100
men, and a lot of new machinery is he.
ing Installed, for the more extensive development of the lirst named two. In
their case, as iii that of the Snowshoe,
the owning company  purposes having
. its own smelter, and though it is hardly
probable that the erection of reduction
works will be proceeded with   this year, j
i the fact that the establishment of such
works is included in the plans of these ',
companies, respectively, tends to increase confidence iu the future of the
district. Then the present position of
the Winnipeg, in Wellington camp, is
much more hopeful than il was lust
year, for reorganization has been accomplished and a body of ore opened tip
that has inspired shareholders with confidence in the management and an assurance thai the property will yet prove
a profit return]iiii mine. In Summit
camp, the R. Bell, with workings at a
level about 130 feet deeper than that being run a year ago, appears  to  warrant
time since determined upon by ihe management ; it, was simply a question of deciding which process would give Ihe best
results. This has apparently I n determined, test BhipmUUtS having heen
made last year, so now il may he expected thill lie null an.I plant will be
put in during the current year. Of this

In anticipation of an early rcsun.ption
of work mi the Jewel, in Long Lake camp,
the Miner last week published a full ami
interesting report on this, the best developed gold-quartz mine ill the Boundary district. The Jewel group, as was
then mentioned, comprises the following mineral claims; Jewel, Denero
Grande, Gold Drop, Massachusetts, and
the Imperial and Exposition fractions.
The development dune on the group
totals 2,410 feel, ni which 7l!l feet is
sinking and raising and 1,001 feet cross-
cutting and driftim;. The present main
shall on the Jewel has been ,-unk 348
feel 011 the incline. As this shaft is
near the boundary line between the
Jewel and Denero Grande, the drifts
iron, it to the south run into the latter
claim. Al the 120-foot level the drift
extends 250 feet north and 170 feel south.
At the 230-foot level the north drift is in
740 feet and the south 10:1 feet. The
330-foot    level    has   not    yet   had much
work   do in   it,  tin- north drift being
only in 72 feet whilst the south drift is
US feet. A crosscut on the 230-foot level,
started 575 feet north of Ihe sh-.iit, runs
83 feet east and 85 feet west Raises,
giving connection between the levels,
add 2110 feet more of work done. Then
there is a prospect shaft down 51 feet
and, on the Cold Drop, another down lill
feet. These workings have exposed
from 15,000 to 20,000 tons of ore. Before
the lowest level was run the mine was
carefully sampled by a well known mining engineer, D. J. MacDonald, who at
thai time estimated that there were 11,-
000 Ions of ore blocked out down to the
230-foot level, and found that the average of 35 representative samples he took
from different parts of the mine was at
the rale off 18.311 per loo of 2,000 pounds.
It was understood when (iilliert Mahon, manager ill British Columbia for
the Jewel Cold Mines. Ltd., left Greenwood for England, two or three months
ago, that a result of his conferring with
the directors would be that 11 policy of
active development would be adopted
and that a stamp mill and a cyanide
plant would in all probability be installed. A series of tests, some of them
of ore in bulk, had been made with the
object of determining the chemical process promising the h.-st treatment results, so will, the information thus obtained before them the directors were
in a better position to decide this important question than bofore these experiments   had   I n   made.    It   is not
yet known here what their decision is

Mr. Sproule asked if the statement
was true that the Company had obtained t'ue consent -jf the federal government
to go ahead and build its line under a
provincial charter, after declining to
sign the non-discrimination agreement
necessary to secure the charter from
parliament.
The premier said that when the bill
left the committee it. was understood
that the promoters were to sign that
agreement; hut as tbey did not sign it,
the government could not consent to the
passage of the hill. lie understood that
the company bad a provincial charter,
but as the government had not yet received a copy of it, he could not make
any further statement.

whicli will now be wound up.
The Sunset group includes the Sunset,
Crown Silver and C. (). D. mineral
claims, which adjoin the .Mother Lode.
Altogether 8,363 feet of work have been
done underground iu development of the
Sunset and Crown Silver, besides prospect holes and test pits on all three
claims. The Sunset shaft was lately
deepened to about -100 feet. Some 700
feet of drifting and crosscutting have
been done at the 2110-foot level and about
1,000 feet at, the lilt) foot level, from
which also a winze has been sunk lill
feet. The Crown Silver shaft, started
at a considerably higher elevation than
that on the Sunset, is down 265 feet,
with 190 feet of crosscutting and drifting at the iri()-foot level and 748 feet, at
the 250-foot level. Some ore of good
grade was opened up in these winkings
and the prospects are considered favorable for excellent, results at greater
depth.
Lately three surface openings exposed ore that appears tube in sufficient
quantity to admit of shipments being
regularly made from them to the smelter. Two of these openings are on the
Sunset and one on the Crown Silver.
Those on the Sunset are on the east and
west sides, respectively, of the hill that
shows so conspicuously the ore eroppings
on this claim. Manager Harry Johns
states that the cut on the east side
shows 25 feel of pay ore and its limit is
not yet, reached, whilst on (he west the
ore shoot is 12 feet in width and uf better grade than that in Ihe east cut.
The open cut on the Crown Silver is
down 10 feet and is in good ore, for the
better working of which a cut is being
made lower down the hill. This cut
will, it is calculated, when it reaches the
ore give a face of 25 feet, to break down
from. Altogether Mr. Johns thinks the
property is looking inure favorable for
good results than he ever saw it do before I le has a force of 110 men at work
above ground and expects to be shortly
in a position to put on more. Negotiations with one or other of the smelters
will shortly be concluded, so that the
ore now being taken out may be shipped.
The plans for work in the near future
include the running of a crosscut al the
300-foot level and another at the 400.
It is also intended to put up a raise from
the 100 level to catch one of the shoots
of ore lately opened on the surface.
The Sunset is well equipped, the machinery and plant being equal to all
likely requirements for some lime to

LEACHING  COPPER BY SULPHUROUS ACID.
E. I'. Jennings read a paper before 1 he
Canadian   Mining   Institute al  lie last
 still*   nn   li i-   subject,  and   an g
other thine- he said :
The writer has had occasion in the
course of his professional work to investigate a unique process of leaching
copper ore- by the use of sulphurous
acid, which has been patented in the
United stales by James XV. Seill, of
Salt Lake City, Utah. The process,
while yet in the experimental stage, has
features which will make it of interesi
to members having deposits of copper
..re remote from transportation, fuel
and Muxes.
The native ...vide- and carbonates of
copper are readily soluble in sulphurous
acid with the formation of cuprous sulphite. This salt is Insoluble in water,
but soluble in water containing sulphurous acid, ft-  which the copper can be precipitated by driving
off the excess of siilphurousaci.l by heat.
The precipitate is cuprous sulphite and
contains-111. 1 per cent of copper. This
salt is a heavy, crystalline compound of
a dark red color, which settles readily
from the solution and can be washed by
decantation, dried and reduced to
metallic copper by fusing on the hearth
of a reverberatory furnare. The process
is suitable both for sulphide andoxidized
ores, the former being lirst roasted to
expel the sulphur and convert the copper compounds into oxidos, as sulphur-t
ous acid does not attack sulphides. The
ideal ore is one carrying oxides or carbonates of copper in a silicious gangue;
lime and magnesia are objectionable, as
thev dissolve in sulpurous acid and.
while they do not materially interfere
with the reactions, they consume a certain amount of sulphur and so increase
the cost of the process
In practice the ore is crushed to pass
20-mesh screen, placed in covered tanks
filled with water containing sulphurous
acid and kept iu a state of agitation by
forcing a current of sulphurous acid from
the gas geneaators through the solution ;
this brings each particle of ore in cm-
tact with the acid and also keeps the
water saturated with sulphurous acid
gas. All the copper will pass into the
solution in from 1 to 4 hours, depending
upon the physical condition of the ore.
The charge is now drawn into a settling tank, the sands allowed to settle
for a few moments, when the solution,
which carries more or less -limes, is decanted into a filter press thai separates
the solution and precipitating the copper as en pro-en prous sulphite, which
settles rapidly to the bottom of the tank.
The solution from this tank is run into
another tank while -till hot aud freed
from the small amount of copper thai is
in solution as sulphate by means of a
little lime. The precipitates are dried
and smelted to line copper. The plant
can be so arranged that nearly all the
sulphurous acid except that, combined
with the copper can be saved and used
again.
One pound of sulphur is required to
convert 4 pounds of copper into sulphite,
and another pound of sulphur will keep
the cuprous sulphite in solution, but the
greater part of this second pound of sulphur can be recovered. In practice
about 1 pound of sulphur is required to
treat II pounds of copper contained in the
ore. The sulphurous acid is produced
either by burning pyrites or sulphur;
the former can be obtained in mosl
mining districts and the latter occurs in
great beds in Utah. When the original
ore is a sulphide it will furnish,by roasting, ample sulphurous acid for its own
treatment.
The  advantages of  the  process over
the     sulphuric    or    hydrochloric    acid |
method are:    I.   Cost of the chemical
is   low.    'J.   II   i-   in'Herat.'d ..lithe spot
hy the use of a very simple plant.    .'I.   Ai
relatively small amount of  the chemical ,
used.    A. The copper is   separated   from
the solution by heal alone.    5. The copper produced is practically free from impurities.
Sulphurous acid produced by roasting
pyrites is Ihe cheapest chemical procurable in the we-lerti country and the
plant is much simpler than that used in
making sulphurous acid. A unit of copper converted into cuprous sulphite requires but half the sulphur lhal would
be required to convert it into cupric sulphate. Cuprous sulphite is precipitated
from the sol 111 ion wil bout the use of I he
scrap iron, whicli is a greal advantage in
remote districts, tn southern Utah, for
instance, scrap would cost from $111 to
$50 per ton and from _."._. to 3^jj pounds
of iron are required to precipitate 1
pound of copper from sulphuric acid
solutions, owing to the large amount of
basic salts formed. Sulphurous acid
dissolves very small amounts of other
metals tiiat may be in the   ore   and   ihe
precipitated cupro-suprous sulphite is
practically pure and furnishes pure copper by a simple smelting operation.
In experiments made by the writer on
ores of the Triassic sandstone ..f northern Arizona, 95 per cent of the copper
was extracted by leaching the ore lor I
hours; the ore  was a  mixture of  bine

further expenditure. To mine on a
syndicate basis, where Ihe money is put
up as it. is needed for development work
or to meet payments on purchase price,
is to my mind an economical and prolit
producing method to adopt. Tbe unloading of the hundreds of wildcats on
the unsuspecting eastern public, and tin'
conse.pi.mt dropping of an Immense
amount of money, should have the effect
of bringing these eastern people to their
senses, and making Ihem see that,
they have gone entirely the wrong way
about it to make their fortunes from the
richly laden hills of the great Pacific
province. One hundred thousand dollars spent, on the lloor of the stock exchange does not drive a tunnel a foot
farther in a mining property in British
Coin mhia, and consequently it does not
assist in the slightest way to make that
$100,000 one cent more valuable, df
course gambling and love are the only
two instincts that are universal.
As long as the public is willing to gamble on mining stocks and go into it
merely with that end in view, they can
he left lo look after themselves, and do
as they please about it. As a gamble
they must he prepared to lose their
slakes, and on account of that loss their
loss they show themselves hut poor
gamblers if they complain and berate
t he country as one possessing no mineral
riches. They can be dismissed, but
those who invested in mining slocks as
a business, and put up their money as a
business transaction, should now look
about them for a means of recouping
themselves. The only way lo do this is
to deal directly with the properties ; to
put money into the ground instead of
into the pockets of the stockbrokers,and
in lime they will reap their reward.
The investments thus far have been altogether loo preeipitinus, and those putting up the money did not lend the
smallest fraction of the business instinct
thai has made them successful in other
line- to the safe-guarding of their mining invsstmonts. In this way, they
have lint themselves to blame; and
again, they cannol condemn th.'country
on account of the fact that they foolishly
pill up their money without knowing
what the returns would he. The country is wonderfully rich, und if the money
spent on account of it is spent in it. investors may lie sure of large dividends
promptly realized."
LYNCHINGS    EXTRAORDINARY.
At a recent dinner in London the conversation turned on the subject of lyneh-
ings in the United States. It was the
general opinion that a rope was the chief
end of man in America, filially, the
hostess turned to a United Stateser.who
had taken no part in the canversation,
and said :
"You, sir. must have often seen these
affairs'."'
"Yes." he replied, "we take a kind of
municipal pride in seeing which city can
show the greatest number of lynchings
yearly "
���eh. .I., tell us about a lynching you
have seen yourself!" broke in half a
dozen voices al once.
"The night before I sailed for England," said the Stateser, "I was giving a
dinner to a number of intimate friends,
when a colored waiter spilled a cup of
soup over the "own of a lady at an adjoining table. The gown was utterly
ruined, and the gentlemen of  her party
at once seized the wait er, I ied a rope
around his neck, and al a signal from
the injured lady, swung him into the
air."
"Horrible!" said the hostess with a
shudder. "And did you actually see
this yourself'.'''
"Well, no," -aid Ihe Stateser, apolo
gelically. "Jusl at Ihat time I was

Victoria Day Celebrated at the
C. P. R. Terminus.
A    SUCCESSFUL   CELEBRATION.
Everybody    Who    Had   Time   and
Money   to  Spare  Went  to
Midway.
Everybody wenl to Midwai yesterday.
! (>vor live  hundred   went   by train, and
half as  many by rigs from Oreenwood.
There were several hundred from Phoenix and (iran.l forks; Camp MeKinney. Lock Creek. West Bridge, Rendell,
Carmi   and   Anarchist   n main   also
-enl representatives to help raise the
dust of Eholt's ranch, and il wa- dusty.
There were Si washes and Klootcl.es
from every poinl on the Kettle river,
Chinese, Japanese, bronceo busters and
horse thieves. Every one of them riding
cayuses and sending skywards clouds of
the excellent soil of Eholt's ranch, w hicli
the .Midway company has failed to irrigate this year. It is possible that the
directors of the company in Montreal
have nol yet decided thai spring has
arrived on the Kettle river, or they may
have postponed the annual recurrence
..I'Ihe season lo allow of a more formal
opening next year.
Midway's excellent brass hand met
the Greenwood contingent at the railway station, and played the visitor- in
to town, ll may be here stated that the
Columbia and Western Bailway company made some mistake in locating
11 site torn railway  station   at Midway.
The   mistake  is  only  a   slight    ���a
couple of miles nearer [ngrini mountnin
than Midway. The sporting event-
were started immediately after the
train arrived and were well contested
throughout. We have not space to give
a complete li.-l of the horse racing. The
lirst prize iu the men's bicycle race was
captured by Bert Melntyre of the
.Mother Lode mine, ��ith MeJIurdo, of
(irand (lurks, second. Thegirls' bicj de
race was captured by Carrie stalling of
Greenwood, with Pearl Butler, also of
(Ireenwood second. The men's 100-
yard fool race was the closes! even!
of the. lav. There were four en tries,Chas.
Wilson and f. .1 Mitchell nf Greenwood,
and Kruger and Suiil h. Wilson won,
brine aboul 11 fool in the lead of
.Mitchell. In the 220 yard race Mitchell
won easily, the others nol lini- ing,
there being no second prize
The   football  match,  (ireenwood  vs.
Phoenix, was won by the latter with one
goal to none.   The  ganii ul.l   hardly
be called football, bul -imply two parties
of individual kickers. There was really
no alien.pi at team play.

looked for.
.1. W. Nelson has returned from a visit
to the neighborhood of Rendell. He reports things as quiet up in the West
fork country.
Mrs. C. M. Shaw was very ill last
week, so ill that tier condition caused
grave apprehension on the part of her
family. She is now sufficiently recovered to be about again.
Martin Welsh has returned from Spokane. Although the sight of his injured
eye is likely to be somewhat impaired
permanently, he sought the services of
a specialist in time to prevent entire
loss of sight in that eye.
A sneak thief was given "two months
hard" by Police Magistrate. Hallett last
week and now the city has one man at
work for it who is not on its pay roll.

a cure of the larceny disease.

It is not the intention in.the foregoing
j to attempt to convey the idea that in no
I single instance has there been what may j
or may not be properly classed as failure.
Indeed to suggest that thi.-, urindeedany,
mining district has no failures to mar its
record would be folly, for in no mining
camp is it to be expected that all prizes
and no blanks will be drawn. What in
their present condition may be designated failures though, may not have
had a 'fair show" to prove themselves
otherwise. It may be that with the
best of management and with most experienced direction the Golden Crown,
War Eagle, Buckhorn, and others that
might be mentioned would have in like
manner disappointed those who found
the money that has been spent on then),
unfortunately with poor results. Under]
such conditions though, there would j
have been the knowledge that they had i
been fairly tested. Now, however, there
is room to doubt that they would have
been landed on the rocks. Yet admitting that these and other ventures in
the district have been failures there still
remains much to he proud of in the
achievments of the past and assuredly a
solid and substantial basis for confident
hope and belief in the future.
