NELSON GETS
THE REFINERY
So   Says   Jay   P.   Graves.
General Manager of the
Granby Company,
He Has Just Returned From
the East Where He Met
Many Capitalists.

I mind   saying, ho'vcver, that on  many
days our slag loss is only .3 per crnt.

REPUBLIC    ROAD.
In the opinion of Jay P. Graves,
one of the most solid, mining men in
the west, Nelson will have the lean
refinery. Mr. (Iraves has just returned from the east where he came in
contact with some of the leading capitalists; who are interested in this
country. His words, therefore, carry
great weight as he is a man who does
not speak unless he knows what he is
talking about. In course of an interview with the Spokesmau-Revie.
Mr. Graves said:
'Unless some one else builds a Canadian lead refienry we shall do so.
However, I think it settled that the
refinery will he built at Nelson, B.C."
"Will the Canadian l'acfiio railway
build it?''
"That is rumored, but I am not in
a position to say."
This was in the   course of an extensive interview, of   which   the follow
ing aie extracts:
"The Granby Consolidated company
will go ahead at once with the building of its copper lefinery. , We are
getting the preliminary information
bb fast as possible, and it is only a
question ot time befoie ground is
broken," Baid Jay P. Graves, thc vice-
president and general manager of the
Granby company, who is just back
from the cast.
"The location of the plant Is still
unsettled. Recent developments have
left the bite uncertain. Wherever it
goes, however, it will bo a plant employing from 300 to 400 men, for we
must bave a smelting plant in connection with it. A refinery gets so
many different sorts of matte that it
must often run tlie material through
a furnace in order to fit it for refining,-
"We were considering some months
ago to build a smelter on the Coast,
but we were not able to get contracts
for sufficient ore to justify a plant.
Therefore we do not expect to com-
menoe work ou a Coast smelter this
year. We were negotiating with the
Brittania people to treat tbeir ore.
We made them two propositions. One
was for them to equip tbe mine and
furnish us the ore. The other was
.or us to equip the mine and have
them furnish us the ore. They did
not favor either plan, however, for
they are trying to sell."
"Does the relinquishment of the
plan to build a smelter on the Coast
mean that you are not considering
the Coast as a refinery site?" Mr.
Graves was asked.
"Not necessarily," he answered,
"although that might be a factor in
determining the site.
"The Granby company is planning
to enlarge its smelting plant at_Grand
Forks as soon as circumstances will
justify. With two furnaoes we are
handling 625 tons of ore a day. Wei
shall have two more furnaces and two
new converters in use by September 1.
Then we lan handle 1,250 tons ol ore
per day. Already we are able to treat
8") ore at a small profit, and we hope
lo be able to treat still lower grade
ore. Of course our ability to mine,
smelt and refine thiB marvelouslv low
grade product is due to our very complete plant, and to the fine fluxing
qualities of .the ore itself. We are
working all the time to reduce operating costs still further. Now we are
planning to put in Bteam shovels to
scoop the ore from the open quarries
into the ears. That will do away
with shovelers."
"It is Bald that some of the northwestern smelters are losing only .3
per cent, of copper in their slag,
which equals a copper loss of only 81
a ton. Is that a fair average for
Boundary ores?' Mr. Graves was
asked.
Yankee like, he answered with another queBtion.    "So   they   Bay   that

Notice ol appeal was filed yesterday
by Whealler and Wragge in the case
of Vice and Williams vs. Brydges for
the stopping of proceedings, on the
verdict rendered recently by Judge
Forin pcud'.ng an appeal to thc full
Oourt.
"Cayuse" Brown is dead, says the
New Denver Ledge. He hid been
prospecting over in the Little Slocan
and returned to Slocan City tired out.
Some time last {Friday night Brown
came into the residence of Judge Ilar-
lison, with whom he had discussed
convivla'ity during tbe day, and went
to bed on the floor. Arsing in the
morning the Judge and a oompanion
wbo slept with him went into the
liquor limits for a dash of Scotch.
They noticed Brown on the floor but
thought he was asleep. Upon return
ing to the house tbey tried to awaken Brown and found that during the
night he had gone up the flume. The
inquest gave whiskey the credit for
the demise.
A good story is going the rounds of
he oity which is asoribed to the pop
ular principal of the publio school,
aud is said to have occurred during
tbe closing exercises preparatory to
the holidays. Ab a fitting closing
ceremony the principal suggested the
singing of a hymn, and intimated his
intention of leaving the choice of it to
the children. Instantly the inevitable small boy put up his band and
requested that tbey he allowed to sing
the well known hymn, "Here We

(SPKCIAI, TO TUB HINF.Il.)
Rossland, B. C. July 10.���The
Miners' Union vote is reported almost
unanimously in favor of a strike,
about 400 ballots being cast. At a
meeting held tonight tbey decided to
strike on all the properties of the
Rossland and Great Western group tomorrow morning at 7 o'clock. The
question of a strike on the other properties of tho camp is still under consideration.

Washington, July 10.���The position
of the British government relative to
the various raining and other concessions in the Transvaal is fully disclog.
ed in a blue book oovering this question, which has lust reached Washington. The subject is of the verj
first interest to the state and war departments, as some of the most
weighty problems now confrontinp
them is a result of claims from various concessionaries in tbe Philippinet
and Porto Rico. Claims of vast amount
are in abeyance and Great Britain"!
action may   furnish a precedent.
The issue was made last September,
when SU Alfred Milner, the South
African commissioner, promulgate.!
the first older giving notice that th.
British Government reserved tbe light
to recognize or modify any] concession
made by the late South African republic, "without proper authority"
or contrary to law, or the condition.'
of which have not been duly complied
with, or which appear to affect pre-
judically the interest of the  republic.
Tim last clause was of the mesi
sweeping character and the British
government appointed a commission
to pass upon the whole subject. Thi
commission has made an exhaustive
report, act out in the blue hook. It
lays down some important principles.
One interesting statement in the beginning is this: On the 1st of Septem
ber, 11100, her late Majesty annexed
the territories and obliterated thi
sovereignty of the South African republic. It is clear that a state which
has annexed another is not legallj
bonud by any contracts made by the
State which ceased to exist, and that
no court of law has jurisdiction to enforce such contracts if tho annexing
state r.fuses to recognize them." The
commission also asserts the right to
"examine whether the reports it is
asked to recognize have in fact been
duly acquired," a point -it interest in
the Cuban cable controversy. It also
accepts Sir Alfred Milner's most important suggestion in the declaration
that the new government Ib justified
in cancelling or modifying a concession "when the maintenance of the
concession is injurious to the public
Interest."
The conclusions of thecomminsslon-
ers have not yet been accepted and
enunciated by the BritiBh Government
itself, so far as the blue book shows.
The correspondence is brought up
to April 10, last.
Mrs. H. Hume is still feeling the
effects of her trying experience in the
Kootenay rapids but is rapidly recovering.
Mr. John Toy, contiactor, returned
to the city yesterday morning from
Fernie, where be has been figuring on
some contracts in that town. He
describes business as very good and
very much better in his line than it
is in this city.
A pleasant evening was spent at the
Baptist church at their social last
evening. An Interesting programme
was rendered by the choir followed
by an equally inteiesting programme
of refreshments and ice cream served
by the ladies. There waa a fair attendance. A collection was taken at
j the close in aid of the choir fund.

Toronto, July 10.���Chief Conservative Whip Taylor was in the city yesterday discussing with lion. G. E.
Foster, the question of his candidacy
for Addlngton. Taylor says the nomination can be secured for Mr. Fostei
if the latter wishes. Thc crop bulletins gathered throughout Ontario
show that grains, hay and roots will
be above the av. rage. Apples and
peaches are largely a failure. Small
'fruits are abundant. Some damage
has been caused to the wheat] by the
Hessian fly. On the whole the harvest promises to be a good one. The
steamcr Garden City met with an accident to her machinery on tho lake
last evening and lay helpless for a
couple of hours with a hundred passengers aboard. The Chicora and
other steamers passed but did not re-
spond_to calls for assistance. At last
the steamer Lymon went out aud
towed the Garden City in.

The Canners Association deny the
story.
Rossland, July 10.���All trackmen
on tbe C. P. It. between Robson and
Rossland went on strike today. This
makes the trackmen's strike on the
C. P. R. In Kootenay and Boundary
complete. Both regular men and extra gangs are effected, probably 100
men in all. The Kootenay men were
not organized when the main line
trackmen went out, but this now has
been accomplished.
Vancouver, u.lly 10.���Mr. Breinner,
labor commissioner, stated to The
Miner correspondent tbat as he bad
received many communications from
all over the Province regarding the
workings of the amended alien labor
act, especially since the C. P. It.
trackmen's strike, be would like to
lot the public know just how matteis
stood in thisj respect. In the lirst
place in answer to many wbo had applied to him to take the initiative in
prosecuting for alleged violation of
tlie act he would say that the matter
was entirely out of the bands of the
Dominion Labor department, hut the
law had been so changed and simplified that the humblest citizen could
act on his own account in tbo most
expeditious manner. Formerly it was
necessary to secure tbe consent of the
Attorney General of Canada before
any action could be taken. According
to the amended act section 3, it is
possible to put the act in operation
by obtaining the consent of the Attorney Genreal of Britisli Columbia or a
Supreme Court judge, while the ael
is not cognizable before a judge of the
Supieme Court, County Court, Police
Court or a Stipendiary Magistrate or
Recorder. Under the old -lause the
written consent of the attorney general of Canada Jhad to be obtained.
Older the new act tho penalty for violation of the law is not to exceed 81,-
000 or to bo less .than 850; formerly
the pe.ialty was Sl.ooo in aii eases.
Formerly section 5 provided that
relatives and personal friends living ill a forcignjeountry could he provided with employment in Canada.
In the amended section "personal
friends" is put down as too elastic.
Section 8 of tbe old act is entirely
repealed. The old act woulJ seem to
apply to citizens of the United States
only. Thus a foreigner could enter
in_ contract labor. The amended
clause provides that tbe act will apply to any person resident in thc
States.
Mr. Bremncr quotes section 1 of tbe
act in its entirety to show its wide
range: "It shall he unlawlul for any
person, company, partnership or corporation it any manner to piepay tbe
transportation or in any way to assist
or encourage the importation or immigration of any alien or foreigner
into Canada under contract or agreement, parole or special expressed or
implied, made previous to the importation or immigration of sti-.h alien or
foreigner to perform labor or service
of any kind in Canada."
Montreal, July 10.���This morning
there have been important developments in tbe C. P. R. strike General
Manager McNicoll was waited upon
by a deputation from Winnipeg iep
resenting engineers, flieraen,trainmen
and telegraphers who presented to
him resolutions passed at the meeting
in Winnipeg.
Ottawa, July 10.���Thomas Murray,
the member for Pontiac in the House
of Commons was married this evening

Vancouver,   July   Hi.���Mr. Chas. S.
Hurter,   in   charge   of the   projected

the C. P. R.   strike is  unfortunate at.
this time as it may Interfere with the
prompt arrival of the  supplies for the
oflice.   The   interior appointments of
the   building   will   bu completed   by

everything   that   can   be done   in the
way of hurrying up   the despatch and
transit of   the   supplies   he    will   do.
Mr. Hurter. when   spoken to   regarding tho action of  the   Government   in
appointing an American   to tbo man
agement of the otlice in   preference io
a Canadian,   slated   that he had been
requested   to  take charge by the Canadian Government and had not volunteered   hiB   services.    He had left   an
Important position as head chemist of
the Carmiclmel   Reduction   Works to
accept the engagement,   lie bad heard
that the question   of   salary combined
with the necessity   of   getting  an experienced man immediately had something   to   do   with   it.    In   fact  one
metallurgist In   Vancouver, certainly
eligible   for   the  otlice, as  he   wonld
jndge from his reputation, had volunteered to  the   Canadian  Government
to accept tbe oflice for the modest stipend of 80,000 a year.
Mr. Hurter added that although he
was a native of Boston, he could certainly be depended upon serving the
Cauadian Government to thej best aL,

Silas.I. McGregor, representing the
S. Dessau Company, New York, im-
porteis of diamonds, carbon and b'orz,
is at the Hume, lie came dhoctly
from New York ani is the first traveller to visit Nelson lo dispose of
diamonds used in diamond drils.
These expensive carbons now bring
$ls per karat, and look to an ordi,
nary outsider, as if tbey were worth
about two-bits a tub full. They uro
black and resemble charcoal or pumice
stone. They are also very porous and
Ily no means look, as tbey are, the
haidest substance that is known.
No file could make the slightest
.scratch on them and they will out
white diamonds. Some idea of the
value of these precious stones may be
gathered fiom the fact that a Miner
reporter yesterday saw 835,000
worth, tbe contents of an ordinaly
envelope, that Mr. McGregor carried
in his vest pocket. They come from
Brazil where natives find them in
crevices in the rocks in the bottoms
of rivers. The only places where
they have yet been found are where
no while man can live on account of
the climate. Burt/., (f which Mr.
McGregor also eairies many samples,
are white diamonds with a market
value of S- a karat, and are used for
diamond drilling only where the
ground   is   soft.
In conversation with a Miner reporter Mr. McGregor said that, diamond
drills are now being used very extensively in tho Michigan and Minnesota iron and copper ranges, in the
Pennsylvania and Ohio eoal regions
and In tlio Missouri lead districts and
in all metalliferous mining camps of
the United States and Canada. The
diamond drill has been the means of
bringing a great many of those conn-
tries into prominence aa it has discovered ore bodies whose existenco
would Otherwise have been unknown.
Increased interest is being taHen by
mining men in 11. C. in diamond
drills and if they come into general
use. here, Mr. McGregor thinks they
will assist greatly in tlio exploitation
of many new ore bodies. Mr. McGregor will visit the most important
mining camps in this country before
returning east.

A correspondent of The Rossland
Miner Hays there nre plenty of opportunities foi the profitable investment
of capital in llrifsli Columbia, Capital is timid, and bus taken fright at
Legislative interference wit!: tlie various laws alTecting the mining indus
try, but after all said and done,
there remains the fact that mining
can be made to pay, and in the end
this fact will dispel the fears of capital and restoie confidence. Then lie
goes on to say that the newspapers in j
the mining districts should give less
attention to complaints and more to
the duty of enlarging on the re-
Houieee and opportunities which the
Province has to oiler ai a reward
for investment.
Every community lias one 01 half
dozen of these very superior persons,
who can teach tne newspapers their
duty and instruct tbem as to the
manner of performing it. If there
are evils of legislation or administration it is important to make tbem
known, for it is only by complaint
that we can hope to have them remedied. The newspapers are doing a
valuable public service if they call
attention to the weaknesses or defects
of our mining laws. If they are
wrong, let us have them put right,
That is the only sensible course to
tuke. We should be a poor sort, indeed, if we sat down under defective
laws and accepted them without a
murmur. Beiuute a newspaper calls
for amendment, it does not follow
only in veiy weak minds���that it has
lost confidence iu the countiy. We
do not know of any newspaper in the

an abundance of excellent oppoituni-
ties for the profitable investment of

If those laws were as tbey ought to
be, however, the opportunities

What are the nawspapers doing but
calling attention to the resources of
the Provine and enlarging on them'.1
What would be known of those resources if it were not for tlie newspapers? If the circulation of knowledge respecting them depended upon
those very superior persons we are
afraid their fame would be of limited
extent. One newspaper in any one
locality does more to make the advantages of the Province known, and to
attract attention to them, than the

who put on such grand airs, with so

we have a rich countiy rich iu opportunities, in which capital may be

If the management of the new Vniir
paper, The Mirror, founded on The
Miner, keep it up to the standard of
the first -Umber, tbey will deserve
prosperity whether tbey achieve it or
not. It is an extremely creditable
production, and should appeal strongly to the support of the people of Ymir
and district.
Mr. Dooley has been paving his
respects to the doctors, through the
mouth of his friend and ghostly adviser, thus: "Father Kelly says th'
stylea+v medicine changes liku th'
eyles iv hats. Whin lie was a^boy they
gave ye quinine fr whatever ailed
ye, an' now they give ye sllirycbnine
an' nex' year they'll be givin' ye
prooaic acid, maybe. Ho says they're
timlin' new things th' maither with
ye ivry day, an' ol' things that have
to be taken out, until th' timo is
comin' when not moie than half iv
us'll be rale an' th' iest II be rubber. Hesaysth'y ought to enforce
th* law iv assault with a deadly
weepin' agin th' doctors. He says
that if they knew less about pi/.en
an' more about gruel an' opened

Orillia is a pretty little town in
East Simcoe. Ontario, situated on two
lakes, Simcoe and ('ouehieliing. It
has a pretty little park, with a pretty
little beach. Mr, Tarte was there

"The Canadians may be slow about
some things," says the Spokane
Review, "but they are not so when
It (ionics: to hunting down criminals
aud giving them their deserts."
Would The Review have the kindness
to enumerate some few of the things
about which Canadi.ns are slow?
The country, perhaps, hat been a lit
tie slow In development, especially
when put in contrast with the United
States; but that is owing to reasons
well understood. The United States
was supposed to be more rich in resources, and it had the attention of
the emigrating element of Kurope.
Canada had to wait its turn. Tbat
has now come, and for a few years
past its progress has been greater, relatively, than that of the United
States or of any other country) in the
world. As a people, aside from those
conditions that were subject to natural influences alone, they will bear
comparison with their neighbors, not
only in respect to the administration
of justice but to any other matter or
tiling becoming the character of an
enlightened and   enterprising nation.

ABOVE THE FALLS.
A Little Girl Falls Into Cottonwood
Creek at the Darn.
At certain times it is the custom
to open the electric light dam ilood
gatos, to allow the rush of water to
wash out the silt and mud that has
accumulated above the dam. Tuesday afternoon was the date selected
for one of these periodic emptyings,
and the dam bavin/ beeu HI lea to the
fullest e~tent, the gate was opened
aud tlie water went out with a roar
as usual. About 100 yards above the

was stauding on the bank watching
what wus going on. With the current caused by the sudden lowering
of the water the section of bank on
which she stood suddenly crumbled.

water. She was swept along, her
clothes keeping her afloat for a short
time. Fortunately for her a boom
la stretched acioss a Bhort distance
above the dam, to pievent driftwood
coming down on the dam. As she
tloatcd up to this she wildly clutched
it, and with wonderful agility for
her age scrambled up on it and to
shore. If it had not been for the
dam boom she would have certainly
gone through the gates and down
over the falls, with undoubtedly fatal results.
Several bvsttanders witnessed the
affair,but it happened so quickiy that
there was no time to rsnder assistance, the little girl owing her life to
the boom.

the aggregate amount of difference

which will result from the reduced

the assessment was changed accordingly. J. A. Sberling appealed on his
assessment of 83,000 which was left
standing as assessed. The assessment

one tluil a cool evening and night will
follow, A few of tlie city doetois
who were interviewed said tbat the
amount ol Sickness In summer in Nel-
h���n. compared with other points was
exceptionally small. As near as
could be learned Nelson's birth rate
compared with tho number of deaths
riming tbe year, was about in the
ratio ut 5 to 1. As a number of
those that died came here for treatment, many being already in a dying condition, it can bo seen that
the city is undoubtedly a healthy
one. While in Montreal in one week
some lfll children between the ng?s of
twelve months and five years died, in
Nelson during the fifty-two weeks
erminating July 1st there were but
hicc deaths of children between the
ages specified.
Even allowing for   the difference in
population,   the   immense   balance in
favor ol Nelson will at once   be   pcr-
civetl.    In   towns   of   similar size to
Nelson In   the   Eastern   States    and
Canada the deaths of children   during
thc summer   frequently   in one   week
utnumber   that of Nelson for the en-
tiro year.    In a new country the children aie undoubtedly   one of tbe best
nides  to  show   its liealtlifnlness  or
the reverse. With adults so many circumstances have to be taken into   account in figuring out   causes of death
that it   is  hard   to get anything like
accurate   idea.      When     u   child
passes   the   first   year    milestone   in
af.ty, the next four or five   years   of
ts ti-e under ordinary   cierumstuuees
an generally be   taken   as indicating
he    salubrity   of   its   surroundings,
he few   exceptions   but  proving   the
ule.   One of the points about Nelson
hat   most   imptesseB    the   observant
isitor troiu the east,    is   the   sturdy,
eiltby  appearance   of   the children,
specially the younger   ones,  that are
cen on the   streets.    The   reason   for
his is not hard to   find.    Nelson's natation at a healthy   altitude  in a eli-
naCc zone little exposed to   extremes
f heat or   cold is  one   great   factor.
Another   is in the superb   water   and
diainage systems  of the   eity, and in
the   open   and   well planned   streets,
in   the residential parts of   Nelson   a
ow of houBes is the exception, nearly
ach   liouse   having   its   own   garden
plot.   The healthy breezes   that blow
all summer ovei   hundreds of miles of
ine forest, mountain   and lakes, also
io   their   share   in   keeping    disease
way.    Nelson is  emphatically a city
ol homes���is   something that is   very
searoe in the   west.   Each   year  sees
the tourist truffle to Nelson increasing
it a rapid rate, and  even the   present
eason, despite   the   trackmen's strike

A Fairview coirespondent writes
There is a fuli face of milk white
quartz in the west drift of _the third
level of the Stemwinder, now in 00
feet. No attempt bus been, made to
ascertain its width. Tho vein on
the second level is_ from IH to 20 feet
between the walls, while the aver-
ago width iB from 0 to 8 feet in other
parts of the mine. There is a noticeable increase in values. Foreman
Campbell lecently took 10 samples,
the average of which gave $7.'10 in
gold and silver. The showing; is exceptionally good, and the valueB are
the best averages from the mine.
The Stemwinder is a low grade free
milling proposition, but it promises
with the most economic mining and
milling to become a profitable producer. Richard Russell, manager of
the Fairview corporation, limited,
owning the Stemwinder, is in Montreal in conference with tbe leading
shareholders. He writes to the office
here that arrangements are progressing to reorganize the concern on an
assessable basiB. The new undertaking is to be culled the New 1<"airview
Corporation, Limited, capitalized
to tbe same amount as the old���$1,-
000,000 in 4,000,000 25 cent shares.
These shares will be exchanged for
the old company's stock as paid up to
22 cents, leaving 3 cents a share to be
called up. The levy will probably be
a few mills per month. As the old
corporation has about 1,000,000
shares unissued, the 3 cent assessment
will be confined to only 3,000,000
shares issued. This would bring in
890,000. Out of this the mortgage
due to Gooderham _5 Blaekstock
would be repaid. The rest would be
used in purchasing additional stamps
for the Tin Horn mill,'in remodelling
it and in equipping the mine to handle a large daily  tonnage.

If the results of the two assays do
not correspond exactly, the brick will
be again melted  down  aud properly
stirred to give uniformity to distribution of metals in tbo heat. When
the assayer and the customer is satisfied, the customer will receive forthwith minted gold for the gold, silver
