Streets Appropriation   Cut   Down^What
the City Fathers Are Doing
The Streets Committee has bee;, busy the past week in revising their estimates for the street improvements to be done this autumn. This is
owing to the Council cutting- down the appropriation for this v.ork to $.,200. Probably the most important suggestion, by far, made iu regard to
the work is that of the Mayor's, that w engineer be employed at once to survey the town, giving all street levels, and provide profiles of all streets.
By so doing all work done now will be permanent, The cost of this work, it is said- will not exceed $150.00. But it is work that is absolutely
necessary, and the city will bt fortunah indeed if an engineer can be secured for this modest sum.
The $tre?ls Committee are now -ailing for tenders for much of the work they propose to complete this year.
The Streets Committee has aisu ander consideration a lighting scheme for the city which will be placed before the electric light company as
soon as possible.
The eighth regular meeting of the city
council was held on Monday evening.

days. A letter was read from Mr. R,
Tatlow, Minister nf Finance, rearieutinn
thennmuntof tuxes to be refunded to
the city bv 'lie government.
Bin. Tatlow explains that the executive
consider the n quest that six month*
taxes be refunded lo the city mo't rea
nonuhle and he assured the council that
they would be justified in borrowing
money for the immediate requirement?
of the city as the Itixee would without
doubt be ultimately refunded.
Mayor Ooburn said that the bank wr*
willing to advance the sum of $3,000 to
•he city, on the security of <hia letter.
The letter was handed to the Mayor to
he deposited in the bank on the receipt
qf the above sum.
Several small accounts were presented
and handed over to the 0nance committee to bj paid if found rorrecr.
The streets cominit'oe, which bad
been appointed to inves'igate adratnige

effect tbat Mrs. Stephens was not at

this question, tbat it was necessary to

was done on the streets. Ue suggested

Aid. Buveridge thought the council
con Id not well f>pt\r*j tde money to employ an engineer. His Worship then
recommended that a sufficient fl<>m he
retained from the moiicy pet aside for the
'■•rent work to pay itn engineer. Aid,
'Hair thought the employment of an
engineer was unnecessary, and Aid,
IConny was in favor uf employing one.

At the public miiriir.g In Id on the

I. < Willi informed the citizms that tev-
eral deatl s had occurred in the li-wn,
the cau»e being attributed by medical
men to the poisonous sulphur Bundle
coming from the Tyee mnelter. Mr,
Blair stated thai the local doctor had
tilven certain men c^rtlficatee to live at
Extension because if they continued to
rc.'id'• iu Ijtdynimtli the tin ike would
undoubtedly kill them. Both of these
tceutlcmen must have been misinformed,
for upon inquiry we find that no de»;h
that has ever taken ph.ee in Ladysmith
has beeu attributed to the cflaotB of tho
smoke by any medical man tbat has hi
hi y time prartiaed in the city, nor have
thw local doctoiB given any men certificates in live at Extension in order that
they might escape tho Milphur Bmoke,

Of Tyee Smelter Manager-Excellent
The tana il report ol Mr. Tbos. Kiddie,
emelter manefir lor the Tym Oopsrr
Company, appear, below, In which iha
Temlti of the year's work are given in
detail: _
During the year the following additions and eatotiiion, have been m»il»:—
A general office coneis'ing of a main
vault and cellar was built. In nidi'r to
provide additional roasting capacity <md
vpread theroaet piles over a larger area
to facilitate their removal, eight additional roaat beds were udded tlminit tl e
year, and trestles emended with cuttings
between, An tbe primp general plan ns
thoiealreadyinstalled. A hrick-ineklnii
plant, consisting of two ona-horse power
pug mills and drying shed, whs Instilled
for the making of raw nre Ones in'o
brlok form. The buildings are 133 feet
by 80 feet and 100 feet by 81 feet, The
pu.e mills are tho ordinary brick miking
mills, while the drying floor is a bottom
heated floor, fired from both ends, with
flueaof red brick tiling Viet ween each Are
box, with two separate stacks, oi.e for
each set of [nrnaces, tbe dues being- covered with clay and rolled, forming the
drying: floor. TjIb has p oved a practical and very economics mode ol drvinir,"
the capacity of tbe plant b.ing 8 000
bricks, equal to 28 tous of ore per day.
A similar one-mill plant, 58 foet by 30
test, for tho making of Hub dint into
brick form, was erected west of the
amelier bull ling. The burnt ore tramway between tbe roast yard and tiio
emelter was doubled in order to handle
the increased tnnnrg1 ol ore for the furnace. Tbe coke track of the Gtqalmatt
A Nanaimb Railway Ontnpany was extended 159 feet and ground graded 150
feet by 3.) feet by 6 lent, ami floored «ilh
2 inch plank, fur tho etorage of coke
against any pcaaible accident or short*
age; and uu the east Bide of the burnt
ere bins a temporary sampling mill whs
erected for the paint ling of ou«tuniaroe.
The E. & K. By. Co. supplied and »e
installed a (1 lo. Daplrx Bteam pump,
placed at high water mark in tbe Imtoott
and connected with our fresh water e\s-
tem. A dam of slag was run acros? to
the "spit,*' which gifts a large reservoir
of (alt water at all stages of the tide lor
fire or slag shottiag purposes. In addi*
tion to the above wo are now laying a
4-in. pipe line to connect with the ally
water mains. These, with nor mpiily
from Rock Creek, put ua iu a safe p.idi
tioo against fire, or pOBoible accident to
the R ick Creek flume.
During the year a large amount of do-
Ishing work has been done to the plant.
Steam plpos covered, boiler feed-water
beater put in,additional cast-iron A tor
plate, laid in tbe smelter shed, and steel
plates on the charging platlorm; caet-
tron flume plates for slag shotting; engine and boiler room roof covered with
corrupted iron; a machinery plied or
etorage warehouse, 20 feet by 30 feet
erected; electric light system extended;
drains dug and the grounds around tlte
emelter and office generally cleared and
graded; while the machinery, plant and
buildings have at all limes been kept In
thorough order and repair.

Roasting—During the year we have
toaited and trammed to the smelter
34,947 tone of ore, the roasting operation,
being etrried on without intermission
•nd with tatislaotory results, In order
to treat tbe large accumulations of raw
ore fine, (some of which had previously
been amelted, produlug a low grade
matte—which was Blow, troublesome and
ecpenaive), experiments were instituted
with ■ view to binding the flue sulphide
o t into brlok lorni whioh could be roasted in heaps, instead of the orthodox
practice of routing in mechanical furnaces and afterwards briqnettlng the
toaited fine,. The final results of these
experiment, were highly [satisfactory,
both aa to the oxidation of the copper,
line, iron, inlphur, etc, and the hard-
nan of the brick producod. After confirming those experiments on a larger
icale, and tbe results being satisfactory,
tbe brick-making and drying plant wag
erected at tbe north end of the roaat
ward, while boriionlal oscillal log screen!
were need under the nre bins to screen
the mine fines to % in. size and less, reducing by 50 pet cent, the qnantiiy to
be made into brick!, the oversee being
unt to the roast Itrape direct. The line
en i« trammed direct to the pit of tbe
tug mill,covered with water, shovelled
into the pug mill and made into trick
form, as in elnp bri.-k making, and then
diled on the drying floor, which rtqiirea
twenty-four bourB. From there the
bricks are wheeled direct, to tie roaat
berle, plied and burnt.
The brick produced after burning is
hard, eorpaot and stands rough handling and u»age; beingenffldentlyclnter.
el it forms a porous homogenotiB mass,
and is a valuable addition to tbe furnace
eha'-trr t f oidinory burnt ore. increasing
the furnace capacity at leaal 1:5- 'one per
diy. The oxidation of tho copper, al re
aid iron is remarkably oouipiefa, aver-
ag", aaniples nl large piles of burn!, hri. ira
giving 1.5'percent, to 2 5 per o.rir.Mtl.

Burnt Ore—The average analysis of
the burnt ore tiaumed at the eoin 'or
during tho year is an follows: Iron, 10 50

waa 10.28 tons of ore to 1 ton of matte,
Dtv ding the above operation into two
periodsof eix months each, we have for
the Orat period uo average ol 105 tons of
ore Bmelted per day, aud for the Becond
an average nl Soil tone per dty,aa in-
creaao of 77 tons smelted per day. The
Binultiug operations during tha year resulted In a steady increase in the amount
of ore Piiiellod per day, a result due to
several factors, Viz.: experience io handling this ciaas or ore; to experiment;
purchase of Euitahte fluxing ores;
clinngeB in tlte manipulation ol the furnace, and the siihrlilutioo of burnt
bricks for raw ore flues in tbe furcate,

The meeting of the Sociali.U held upon the Pavilion green last, Mondty night,
wis fairly well attended, The lecture,
which wjtfi given by a Mr. Klummck,
was perhtips evt-n morn idotic than mich
matters usual I v are. Thes|ieakerV main
object seemed to ha t*< give Utterence lo
the ni'»Bt stupid and vulgar c'ant.* phrases
he iMiild p'.isrtihly eitll to memory, and at
times duriiij/ tbe .mirre of his Isctnre
mi" m'uh' easily be pardoned for fallim*
n uler the noprepvion that the discourse
was nnc nn uthoiem instead of Hucialism,
In speuking '»f clerics tho lecturer became most scornful and eluded to them
as "skinners," and althouktb bo declared
that sociallem promoted Christianity,
be strongly advi^d hie hearers to keep
clear of the eunn\
He Bvm[ialh;z-<1 with the Ladysml'b
miners becau-e they had no union, aid
besought the "while tUve" to cast oil'
voke and live bereaftera life of freedom*
It seems that the leotare on Socialism
was not tbe only purpose ol Mr. Klaru-
Mck, for he concluded by ofTurliig for
sale bonks at tbe price of five cents, to
support his wife ami children, He said
be considered tbe man who infeuacd to
liku work a fool, and npm this point
only is it possible for same people to believe that ho spoke truthfully.

they weregling to meet worthy men at*
