Superb Contest and all Previous Sailing Records
Left Behind.
New York, Oct.   a ���It looked early
this morning ns if   t-iir   Thomas   Lip-
Eton's   wish    (or strong breezes arid   a
;'���'Smooth sen hail licon g'l'-nted,  for at 8
o'clock   a   grand   :'l-milo breeze wns

there wns sciueely   any   surf.     There

.Just   night's storm   had nil blown   to
sea, tho sky was beautifully clear anil
j tlio aii   bright   anil sparkling with   a
touch of 'Autumn   chill   in   it.     Conditions   of wind and water weio ideal
and   promised   a   rare   day's race bo-
itween     the   two     big   yachts.      Sir
Thomas   Lipton   was   out  early   and
tubbed his hands with a glee wlien he
-came or, deck the Erin.    This is what

would havo a good   race.     The Shamrock should do well today.   True, Mr.
Morgan   says   tbo     Colombia    wants
"wind, hut so do   we.      If   the   breeze
keeps up   we   will bave   a fair tost of

from the transport to tho yacht Erin.
The sea was choppy and the small
boats were tossed about in a threatening manner.      ,
a. On both boats every   sail seemed   to
��� set to perfection and   as tin wind had
slackened   a little both   captains   sent
Up their largest   club   topsails,     The
Shamrock was first to drop   her   tow.
\JTlio Columbia soon   followed suit and
both yachts behaved   magnificently in
"���g'thc splendid breeze.
B  In   the   second   raco   between    the
Shamrock   II.   and    the Columbia for
vl'lilie Aiii.irba's cup the wind was fresh
inrom the north   northwest   which   re-
^mnaiuod     true    and     maintained   its
ffflatrength   throughout   tlio day.    In   a
Inglorious   whole   sail    breeze    which
'o*vhoeled the big cup   contestants  down
Mpo their   lee rails were awash  in   the
.''"."forming sens, Ilcrreshof's  white won*
���<|gdor, the   Columbia,  today   beat   Wat-
ton's Hritish creation over a tri-
ngular course of BO miles by two
iljfuilnutes and 52 seconds actual time.
HcVith the 48 seconds which the Sham-
,*Krook must allow the American boat on
^Hccount of her larger sail plan the
jSSt'oluuibia won the second raco of the
Henries by three mintues and BU
ygscconds, the fastest race over sailed iu
a cup eontost. It was not only a
loyal struggle from a spectators'
point of view but it was absolutely
decisive as to the merits of tho two
racing machine-,. There was not a
achting sharp who witnessed the
race today who is not convinced tbat
the defender is the abler boat high
or low, beating, reaching.or running,
'and Sir Thomas ami his merry Brit*
'-, ish tars are doouiod to return home
| empty handed. Again the ancient
piece of silverware brought across the
western ocoan fifty years ago is safe,
again American supremacy in marine
architootnre has boon vindicated.
Sir Thomas has boen wishing for
wind thnt would bury the Shamrock's
lee rail and today bo had it. The
w'nd today was strong and true,
blowing around 10 knots from the
northwest and at ovory point of sailing except perhaps running before the
wind in which the defender has
nlready taken the measure of the ohallenger, tho Yankee sioop proved her
self abler than Watson's model. From
the time she. dossed tho starting line,
one minute and 84 seconds behind the
niugbuiitu until she picked up and
passed ihe Irish boat,tbree miles after
iinding   the   second   mark,   Colum
bia's pace was faster and she behaved
better than her rival, Keaching for
tho first mark, ten miles down Long
i Island shore with the wind abaft tile
beam, sho gained 113 seconds. In tho
close reach foi tbo second stake she
gained thirty seconds and in the
thresh to windward on tlio leg home,
she gained two minutes.
Wot, perhaps as thrilling as tho
remarkable contest of Inst Saturday,
today's race wns nevertheless stirring
from start to finish and as a muiine
speotado it oould hava hardly been
surpassed.
It was an ideal October "lay also.
There was just enough frost to clear
the atmosphere and make tho whole
couiso visible from the shore. The
breeze from the land piled up little
swells, but it was not strong enough
to whip the froth out of the racing
waves until it whitened tho face of
Iho sea. Its claws caugbt the black
smoke from thc stacks of the excursion fleet and white steam from their
exhaust pipes and toro them into fragments. The ensigns and Hags with
which tho vessels weie dressed stood
out like painted bonrds. The tall
canvas clouded racers heeled as the
wind smote them until their crew
could with dilliculty keep their footing on tiie slippery sloping decks and
tho spurting spray was tossed thirty
feet high as they shook their noses free
of the foam crest, On the thresh to
windward their decks wero a smother
of white and fountains of foam curled
away from their bows. The Yankee
victory began with the start when tho
crafty Hair,by a system or manocuvor-
ing convinced his opponent that he
wns trying to cross the lino first.
Captain Sycamore promptly took the
bait and iusbing his boat into position sent her away almost in thc
smoko of the gun. Thereupon Capt.
Ban* having accomplished his purpose, tacked back on tho line and hold
off for over n minute. Then with a
Hying start he wont over just before
the handicap gun was fired. None of
the patriots were disappointed until
the experts explained that there was
no windward berth in a reach where
the boats cou'd lay their conrsD
Straight for the mark and that the
position astern where ho conld keep
his eves on every move of his rival
was the commanding one. lie could
watch the Shamrock liko a hawk,
knowing that when the gap between
tbem was closed, the race was his.
For tho first Iii miles no ono could
tell which ship if either, was gaining,
so closely wero thoy matched. But
gradually it became apparent that, the
Columbia waa overhauling tho challenger. Slowly, foot by foot, the
white boat gained. Hoth wero going
at a terrific pace. The patrol fleet to
leeward steaming ahead at intervals
of four hundred yards had no dilliculty in keeping tho excursion fleet
clear of the winged giants. Everything in the fleet had to crowd un
steam to keep the raceis in sight and
the gait at which they were going loft
tho tugboats and somo of the steam
yachts astern. The guide bont which
staitod 15 minutes before tho racers
dug out at a fast speed, but she was
hardly able to log oil the distance
aud get the float overboard before
tho racers were on her.
As the bouts approached the outer
mark, a stream of signal flags were
set on the revenue cutter Gresham,
the flagship of the patrol fleet instructing thorn to change direction by
the right flank. The petrol boats
swung around to line ot west and
charged down upon the excursion
fleet. Tlie latter with hells clanging
in the engine loom for more speed
turned tall.
Leaving the fiist mark on the star
board hand, the racers gibed ovur
then' big tooms and went for the ten
mile mark, tho Columbia gaining
slowly but surely. Tbey hud covered
the fiist ten miles in a little over
twenty minutes. When they swuug
around the second mark they took in
their baby jib topsails and hauled
their wind for tbe beat home.
Both yachts heeled until their nnder
bodies were lifted high over the water
and their lee rails dipped a foot in the
swirling billows. In live minutes
after rounding tne last mark, it was
apparent that Columbia was footing
faster and pointing higher. The rush
of the leviathans on the final tack
was magnificent. The excursion boats
black with poople from gunwale to
pilot houses gathered about the finish
as in a great horseshoe. As tho white
flyer came on with a big bone in bet
Lentil well in tbe lead the patrol skippers with theii hands on thoir whistle

Black Damp Interferes With
Rescue Work In Extension Mine.
Victoria, (let. 8.���The air is full of
political rumors, It was generally
understood that the Dunsmuir government, having been defeated in their
attempt to elect a minister in New
Westminster, would resign after tbe
visit of the Duke of York, and today
thoir resignation was looked for by
the public. Hon. 1). M. Eberts, attorney geneial in the Dunsmuir government, it was said, would be recommended by Mr, Dunsmuir to the
lieutenant-governor as his successor,
A long cabinet meeting was held this
afternoon but nothing definite was
decided upon, although from aftor
events it seems probable that Mr.
Eberts was given ti".*o^to see whether
he oould rally enough supporters to
ensure his success should he form a
ministry. He met several members of
the legislature this evening tut what
assurances, if any, be received of support is not known. Mr. Dunsmuir is
being urged by many to continue in
ollice.
Black damp was found in such
quantities in the Extension mines
today that ihe woik of reopening the
mino and continuing the i-can-.li for
the bodies had to be stopped. The
presence of so much of this damp
strengthens the theory that the hie is
out.
The Now Vancouver Coal company,
at Nanaimo, today completed their
new railway to the llnrwood mine
and will commence shipping from
that mine immediately. This will
greatly increase the output of tho company's coal which is in so much demand in Sim Fiancisco.

LABOR (JAINS IN AUSTRIA,
Buda Best, Oct. 8.���Although the
newspapers here today publish congratulatory articles on the order
und fairness of tho parliamentary
general election yesterday, which resulted in tho return of large labor
majority for the government, the fact
remains that there wero serious encounters in many districts, necessitating military interference, during
which the troops fired and killed or
wounded a number of pei sons. The
ogvernment has been obliged to declare some of the results invalid owing to the coercive measures of the
local authorities.

CLARE WALLACE KECOVERINO.
Woodhiidge, (int., Ocl. 3.���ThiB
afternoon Hon. Clarke Wallace was
reported as improving. Prospects
now for his complete recovery are said
lo be bright.
���I. K. Clark, superintendent of the
Fisher Maiden group, near New
Denver, in at the Phair. In spjailing
yesterday about tho development of
the Fisher Maiden,Mr. Clark said that
the property has improved wonderfully in the past fow months. It is
being opened byja series of live tunnels and work has been commenced
on No. 5 tunnel which is in for a
distance of 80 feet. In each of the
five tunnels ore of a pay grade has
been found. The most work has been
done on No. 3 level, whore the ore
shoot has ben drifted on for a distance of '150 feet. The vein varies in
width from 10 to 35 feet, carrying a
paystreak of from nix inches to three
feet in width which consists uf a high
grade dry silver ore, which gives
smelter returns of as high as $346 to
tho ton. No attempt has yet been
made to slope oro since the new management took hold in July of the
present year.
The company is now erecting commodious bunk and mess houses, large
enough to accommodate 10 men, and
intends to put on un increased dc
ve'opmont force as soon as the structures ure completed. A new trail has
just been completed for a distanco of
one mile, to a connection with the
wagon road running to Silverton.
This is preparatory to shipping ore to
the smelters. Tho shipments will be
commenced just as soon as the sleighing is good.
The management is greatly pleased
with the result of the development
aud considers that it has a mine of
more than ordinary value. It is cei-
tain now that this property will soon
be one of the larger shippers of the
Slocan.
Tlie Fisher Maiden group, after
shipping about 200 tons of ore became
entangled in a lawsuit, was shut
dowu and lay dormant for about four
years. In February of last year the
legal troubles wero adjusted and in
July Mr. Clark was appointed to
superintend the property and he lias
made u mine ol it just the same as he
made a mine of the Arlington aftor il
had heen dormant for several years.
Mr. Clark says there are several
othor pioperties along Four Milo
crook which only lack capital to make
them mines.

Charles Earle, who has tho contract
for making 1,250,000 brick for the
smelter of the Sullivan Group Mining
company at Marysville, East Kootenay, is in the city. Ho reports that
he has a brickmaking plant in full
operation. lie has a 70-horsepower
engine and brickmaing machinery
capable of turning out 80,000 brick
per day, and expects to have his contraot completed some time during lhe
present mouth. The desiro of the
management of thc Sullivan Grunp
Mining company, lie says, is to orowd
construction on the smelter so that
the reduction of ore may be commenced just as soon as possible. There is
plenty ot ore resorves in the Sullivan
mine to keep the smelter in operation
for a long period, and it is certain
that tbe other mines iu East Kootenay will ship their output of silver-
lead ore to the smelter for treatment
whon it is finished and ready for
operation.
F. H, Oliver, managing director of
the Morrison Mines, limited, whicli is
operating tlie Morrison mine In the
Deadwood camp, three miles from
Greenwood, was at tho Phair last
evening. ilo is on route from Spokane to Deadwood camp and roports
that 20 men are actively engaged in
developing tho Moirlson. The biink-
eis at the mine aro finished and aie
filled with oro and there is a large
quantity of ore in sight In tho mine.
The datu for the commencing of shipments has not yet been set, but it will
not bo long boforo the Morrison is
placed on the list.
Big Water  and   Light
Proceeds.
With the month of September at an
end practically all the real piopertv
taxes of the eity havo beeu paid and
the city knows its financial position
for the year unless some unfoiseen
expenditure becomes necessary.
As to rates of taxation, water, light
and sewe-s and other matters coming
under the contol of the council,Nelson
compares most favorably with othei
cities of Hritish Columbia, The into
of taxation this year was I-I'.j mills
on the dollar on the assessment of
laud aud 2}., mills on improvements,
whicli wero assessed ut one half their
actual ruluo. This rate was what
was required to meet only the interest
and sinking lund on the bonded in-
I'ebtedess of the city, all other expenses being met out of prolits fro*_i
tho electric light and water plants,
licenses,sewer rentals and iiil.'cojlunc-
ous receipts.
This low rate of taxation on real
property, and particularly tho different and veiy low rate ou Improvements gives a vory noticeable exemption to those who may make Nelson tholr home and invest money in
its improvement.
Municipal statistics are to bund
from the oitie.s of the province and
only two of these have a lower rate,
namely Cumberland, 3JU nulls and
Columbia, 10 mills. Tbe rates of surrounding citico were as follows.
Kaslo and New Westminster, 24 mills;
Greenwood, Kamloops, Rossland and
Vancouver, 20 mills; Victoria, 2!
mills; Vernon, 15 mills, and Bevel-
Stoke, 16.28 mills. Twenty mills or,
tha dollar seems to be the common
rate.
In a city taxing 20 mills, the advantage in fa/or of Nelson would bo
shown by the following comparison.
Suppose a man to own a lot worth
$1,000 and erect thereon a $5,00(1
building. In the former cities he
would be assessed for 81,'KlU on the
iaed aud one half the value cn the
buildings, %'i,au<], or a total of 83,Dill).
His taxes would be 870 with possibly
a rebate of one-sixth or $11.00 foi
prompt payment, making the net tax
858.33. The Baino property in Nelson
would pay 11*^ mills on 81000 or
$11.50 and 2':, mills on 82,50(1, or $0.25
on the building a total of if20.75,
scarcely moie than one-third. The
difference would be still greater the
more valuable the balding erected.
A $1,000 lot with a $20,000 building
thereon in Nelson would pay 830.50 in
tuxes, in the other cities with the ro-
bate $183.33,
All these cities collect trades
licenses which are usually tho limit
that the Municipal Act allows; Those
in Nelson are: Saloon, $500; ictail
liquor store, 8100; hotel, $300; wholo
sale liquor, $100, retail trades, $10;
lawyers and some other professional
men $25 a year.
The electric light rates are lower
than thoso tn most surrounding cities,
miming from 75o per light por month
down ID 30c in proportion to the number used and tbo class of building, yet
tbey yield un estimated profit ol
$15,000 a yeai over in d above running
oxponscs. fho water rates aro also
moderate for a up-couutry city being
prepared on the basis of $1.00 per
mouth for a four-roomed house increasing with 20c for each additional
room, 25c for bathroom and 25c for
closets. On these rates 10 per cent
rebate is given for payment in advance for a quarter of a year. A
meter rate, stated in cubic feet, but
calculated by gallons, runs from 75c
per 1,000 gallons down to HOC according to quantity used. Theso rates are
moderate but they yield a handsome
revenue above running expenses,
811,000 is the estimate for this yoar.
The bonded indebtedness of Nelson
is 8275,000 aguinst which tho city
holds assets   valued at $225,000 after a
reasonable amount for depredation in
value from cost has been written   oil.
Theso  asRets   contain   tho   nucleus of
timo to come, only comparatively
small additions from timo to time
being required. Its lire department is
supplied with ample hoso to reach any
building in the city, hose wagons,
hook and ladder truck, chemical
engine, several llabcuck cxtlnguisbtra
and a team of horses. The city also
owns the Bra ball and city ball with
four lots on which the) stand, steam
roud roller and stone crusher and 10
U3res of park gonad. There are 12
in'los of water mains, extending to
practically every liouse within the
corporation limits; 7'.- miles of
sewers, and 13!.. miles of sidewalks.
The assessed value of the property o)
the city this year is 82,330,070, A
Municipal association ha.s been formed
In Vancouvei which Is proparing information t" in tubulated und circu
laud. When this work is done and
tlio results of investigation published
a comprehensive comparison may be
made in which Nelson will make an
excellent showing. Some may differ
from the details of the course Ihut
has been pursued in tho past but the
general results must bo considered
good. It may be mentioned that so
far thc only members of the council
who has drawn an indemnity for his
services has been the mayor, who Ibis
year is allowed $1,200. lu this the
aldermen have been more patriotic to
their city tuan is common among
members of city councils in British
Columbia. Mayor Net-lands accepted
no Indemnity when In- held Iho ollice.

Grand Forks, Oct. 3.--While grading on the V. V. & E. railway
through i field on tho much of Jay P.

was uncovered. The discovery was
promptly slaued by one of the
graders, 'The first assay gave 870 in

Mr. Iliock stated that time did not
permit him to make an exhaustive examination of tho district but he convinced himself that tho coal occurs iu

undoubtedly existed there, but
Whethet in paying quantities or not
would depend upon prospecting and
further development work. Thus far
no real woik has boon done except at
two points where the outcropping
were uncovered and opened up to the
extent of a few feet. The coal, be
said, wns undoubtedly of the bituminous vaiioty and of good quality He
brought baok a considerable quantity
of specimens. Asked whether the coal
fields would prove permanent and of
couimorciul utility, Mr. Brock replied
that it was impossible to decide until
the measures had beeu further prospected and opened up. A good deal
would depend upon the conditions
under which the coal hearing rocks
had been formed besides further work
might disclose other coal seams and
it would be possible under favorable
conditions that tbe seams would De

Inquest on Victims of Torpedo Boat
Destroyer Cobra.
London. Cot, 3. -The InqueBt over
the remains of the victims uf the disaster to tbe turbine torpedo boat destroyer Cobra was resumed at Grimsby
today. A diver testified that he found
tho Cobra broken, the end of the
forward half was jugged and looked
like that of a cane broken across a
person's knee. He did not find any
truce of Cobra's having touched a sand
liar or a wreck. She broke olf close
to one of her boiluis. The stern half
could not be discovered, though the
liver searched for ten fathoms around.
The jury rendered a verdict that the
men had been drowned through the
unexplained buokling cf the Cobra
ind added a rider to the effect tbat
ihe Cobra had been too lightly built.
This seems to dispose of the suggestion
of faulty navigation on the part of
Lieut. II. Smith, commander of the
Cobra.

There is still a chance for tiie
Shamrock to win. although it is admitted that it is a very small one. but
as ihe British often win in the face
of   great odds il may yet he   possible
British courts do not reoognlie the
divoices of Hritish subjects when they
have been seemed in American
courts. Mrs. Minnie Woods found this
out to her sorrow when she was convicted   of     bigamy     in   Toronto   on
Wednesday.    The convicted woman is   f,,r t),e shamrock to eniry off the cup
The victory would   be   more   accept*
able under such circumstances than if
a Hritish subject and married a Mr
llurkhardt. who secured a divorce
from her in Michigan on the grounds
of extreme cruelty. Then ti.o fair
divoroie married a Mr. Pureill and for
this Bbe was arrested, ttied and con*
victed of bigamy.
In charging tlie jury tlie judge, before whom tbe case was trieti, cited
thc Russell case in whioh it was
decided tbat Hritish law did not
recognize Ameiican divorces obtained
by British subjects on the ground that
they would nut be sufficient in England. The cireu'i.stunces of the Russell case, quoting from memory,
wero as fulio.vs: Russell was married
in England and did not agree with his
wile, and left her. and emigrated to
Colorado. There he became enamored
with au American woman, and obtained a divorce from his English
wife. He married tlie American
nnd returned to England and was arrested for bigamy. The case was
tried before tbe House of L.ords and
the defendant pleaded guilty and was
sentenced lo a short term of imprisonment, This fixed a precedent for like
cases, as shown by the (act
that the judge in the case at Toronto
quoted it when charging the jury.
The divorce law-; of the United
States aie extremely lax and it is virtually the case lhat any married individual who desires to be divorced can
obtain the coveted decree with very
littlo trouble. Abuses have crept in
nnder the loose law and in some
states legal separations can be obtained easier than in others and large
numbers of dissatisfied husbands and
disgruntled wives lluck to theso places
In search uf what tbey cull, ''single
blessedness." The evil has become so
great as to constitute a national blot
and scandal and a strong movement is
now on foot to make tbe divorce laws
of the states uiilfotm. Under the pernicious system the shyster divorce
lawyer bus become an institution und
for a consideration he will undertake
to manufacture evidence, where none
really exists of sufficient weight, unless exposed, to convince the eouit
that lt should grant the divorce.
Tbe effect is baneful, as it tends to
violate the sanctity of married life
and to destroy   the home,   and is pur

THE EXTENSION DISASTER.
It would seem
means could be
such    deplorable
which     occurred
as though some
devised to prevent
disasters as that
in     the   Extension
colliery near Ladysmith on Monday,
in which 17 men lost their lives and a
valuable plant and much propeity
were destroyed. The cureless use of a
naked light was probably the Close of
tbe disaster for the account says that
the fire caught from n lamp setting
fire to a blanket, which would have
heen impossible if the light was of
the safety kind. Explosions of Ore
dump or coal dust caused principally by
using naked lights is one of the most
fruitful causes of deaths in coal mines,
although falling ground claims more
victims than do explosions, In Great
Hrituin last year in coal mines theie
were 098 accidents and in these there
were 048 deaths. This is a death roll
whicli is nut very comforting to look
at und sIiots how perilous the occupation of the coul miner is. Theie
are no statisitos available as to what
the loss of Jile in this province last
year was in the coal mines.
Thu remedy tu prevent fires and explosions is the use of covered lights,
hut miners get careless even in mines
bcie tiie management endeavors to be
very strict in this rcspcot und the
result is a disaster like tho one al Extension colliery.

Granby People to Mine Ore
Cheaper   Than   Anywhere Else.
Smelling   Charnes   Will   Be

Orand Forks, Oct, 8.���S, II. 0.
Minor, of Montreal ami 0 ran by, Quo.,
president of the Granby Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co., bus just con-
Oluded his annual vn.il to the lliiuml-
ary country. Mr. Miner, mho is ae*
OUtnpanied by Mrs. Miner ami Miss
Miller.leaves for tlie east tomorrow.
The fortnight spout in this section
proved a busy one: there was tbe in-
siiuitlon ol* the Granby smelter at
Grand Fork:: as well as the big group
of mines ut l'hoenix, besides tbo bold
iiifr of important conferences with -lay
p. Grave*!, general manager,and A. C.
Flumerfelt, assistant general man.
agar, respecting general matters of
polioy, future enlargements, eto. To
your correspondent Mr. Miner said:
liritisli Columbia, in developing by
regular anil proper methods of procedure, in my opinion will be alrijrlit
so far as is miniug interests are ccn-
ecrner*. The days of "fakes" nre
piaotically over. True development
and equipment, properly done, will
ensure the future of the province
With its enormous bodies of low giade
ore. But honest work must, be done
instead of "playing the stick mar-
kot," and leaving the mines to tako
care of themselves. I am firmly convinced tbat the stability of Grantl
Forks as a cen ler, backed np by the
proiiiicinp* ability of Phoenix, He*
publi'i and other camps, is ensured
that smelting in and around Grand
Forks will iio on by leaps and bounds
for some years to come, The Granby
company alone will soon bave iu operation four fiiriiiicoa representing a
capacity of 1,3,(1 Ions daily and tlio
next step will be six furnaces; and
in probability in tbo near future
double smellers, each with practically
a daily capacity of 3,000 Iocs, will be
installed.
Tbo work, I may sny, bas gone on
exactly according to plans aud calculations, save a little hold-up on account of the machinists' ttirke at
Chicago. Development at our Phoenix
mines Including tbe Knob Ilill aud
Old Ironsides has proceeded during
the past twelve months on a larger
scale than ever. Strange as it may
appear, the ore bodies aie so vast that
it is difficult for any engineer to calculate the ore iu sight. It is the
opinion of prominent engineers who
vary more or less in their calculations, that the ore in sjght runs all
the way from eight to fifteen million
tons, and it is not difficult to estimate
with treatment facilities of anywhere
from .11)1), uun to 1,000,00(1 tons annually bow many years the present
ava'lable tonnage will last without
another day of development.
As a rule I object and decline lo
make statements respecting these ore
reserves on account of tbeir vastness,
but the Held of inpeclion is open to
all visitors lo see for themselves,
Furthermore, I think tbe country ut
large ought to be satisfied that we are
proceediin. along linos oi true and
legitimate development. It iB onr
hope to restore largely tbe reputation
of lliilish Columbiu us a mining suction.
In view of the largeness of our ore
bodies, we are adopting a new process
known as the *'cave*iii'' system and
whicli hitherto bus not been applied
to copper mining. After careful investigation ive ascertained that we
can adopt the methods used in iron
milling in Michigan   uml   Minnesota,
Hy means of large open cuts in a
mountain of ore we cun break down
the ore and load it onto the cars with
sleaiii shovels thereby obviating all
tiuibi'iing and pumping, and reducing
to a minimum tbe cost of handling
the whole mass.
It is conceded so far as our smelling
operations are concerned that we are
treating oros at a less cost than any
other smelting plant in tbo world.
Moreover we intend to beat our own
record by at least '.'5 per oent., an
achievement flat will bo due to complete equipment and tho increased
quantity of ore handled.
For the benefit nf "Doubling
Thomases," added Mr. Miner in conclusion, 1 may say that practically all
the expense of increasing the plant at
the smeller and at l'hoenix is oomlng
out of tbo ground without a penny
being nsked from tbe shareholders.
Instead of striving for dividends too
soon we are building up with our
earning a very large and important
mining and smelting proposition,
which wc trust will be sure and permanent for all our investors.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the boating* capacity of the stove, and in connection with the dellcctor^ring forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w;th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of fire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and pro'ucls of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the ste ve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the ha:k takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it intensely heated, through the top adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according- to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft cod, thu.*, deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving' of
fuel over any other stove on lhe market. The stove will hold lire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
