Mining News.
It, is reported that the Silver King
mine in showing up better all the
time, altlinugli the management arc
extremely reticent as tn giving out
any Information to the press, concerning UiJ progress being made, It was
learned from some of the men employed at the mine that since tho
completion of tho new one thousand
fiut shaft about the l.st of July last,
Hint the mine has been shipping from
130 to Hill lolls of ore per day. The
ore at present is being taken principally from the six, seven and eight
hundred foot levels, and some extremely rich oie has been taken out
lately, I lin values having apparently
unproved with depth. There lire
now llli men employed al the mine,
that being tbe number on the payroll
for Angus;.
The Lardeau Eagle has good reasons
for believing that the Silver Cup mine
wiil work a force of about It) men
this winter, and ship anywhere fiom
son lo l.oon tons of ore. If this Information proves tc be correct, the
payroll of Ferguson will bo strictly
all right tbis winter, since thore will

from tlie No. 2 Lo Roi dump to the
Trail smelter, and 1,200 tons was
mined in tlio Josie and shipped to
Northport. The total output for the
year to date now reaches 233,318 tons.
M. Dempster stated it was the intention of the Republic company to work
on a large scale throughout tbe winter. Hi:, principals were well satisfied
with their visit and weie willing to
expend much money, New quarters
would he built at tbe mine and a big
lorco of men employed, under ln��
superintendency or If. ('. Oampooll-
Johnston. A wagon road would also
be constructed from the old Springer
mad to the Republic, giving an easy
access throughout tho winter Operations would bo in full Hiving before
the ftnow dies.
Last week's official Gazette contained thu ccrtilicato of incorporation of
tbe Slooan-Republio Mining .t Development Co., which will operate the
Republic mine The capital stock is
placid at .1,600,000, in if I shares, and
the company is licensed to do a genoral mining business. On Monday Vi.
D. McGregor started out to run tho
lines ami levels for tho proposed

will greatly help all (be piopertios on

During the last week or so tho force
on the Enterprise has been increased
to aa men and it is the intention to
btil! further increase the number and
work tho mine full-handed all winter.
At the mill 25 men are employed
putting the finishing touches to the
machinery and setting up tho compressor. With the air drills in placo,
a vast amount of development will be
done, and a great deal of ore taken
down foi treatment. Hy the end of
noxt week the mill and tramway

jealousy.      The newspapers, however,
take delight   in pointing  out that the
C/ar used the most measured language
in     replying   to   President     Loubet,
whose utterances aro here regarded as
an ill disguised intimation of Franco's
thirsts fcr revenge on Germany.     Ail
tbo Czar's  utterances   in   France  nre
bore regarded as meaning no inteifer-
ence on  the  part   cf   Russia   in   the
affairs  of other nations. ,
The German papers report with satisfaction the utterances of M. Do
Cassngnac and other French Chauvinists, to the elTeot that the Franco*
Russia alliance is devoid of any practical advantage for France, and means
lier final renunciation of the lost
provinces. The Char's words "unreasonable principles'' are here understood to be a gentle hint to France
not to misinterpret the alliance in the
direction of the recovery of Alsace ami
Lorraine. Hence the German press
concludes that the Czar's visit does
not change tlie status quo and that
Franco must be content with the bloodless victories gained over Germany in
winning tlie Czar's favor.
The tariff discussion giows warmer.
Tho expressions of tbe Chamber of
Commerce against the bill are becoming more frequent and sharper. The
utter direct their attack chiefly
against tbo system of niaximinal and
minimal duties on grain, Tbe Conservatives advocate an extension of the
double system tn rough the other
schedules. The K roust Zoitung (Con
servative) points out that the Dingley
act olTors a model to follow, by permitting a twenty por cent, reduction
of all duties for reciprocity.
The affairs of the United States,
however, naturally occupied much attention this week. Considerable biographical and anecdotal matter about
the into President MoKinley anil President Roosevelt has beeu printed.
President Roosevelt's probable policy
and the possibilities of cubinet
changes excite general interest. Tlio
Vossisobe Zeitung discussed lengthily
the Unitod States eoal exports, and
concludes; "It is only a question
of cheap ocean freights, when American coal will play an important role
in the world's commerce. Tbo report
thereof would bo assisted hy the tariff
reduction which President MoKinley
and President Roosevelt have advocated since American coalers wero
able to get return cargoes.

the inference drawn from theit answers was that they believed Czolgosz
to bo sane.
District Attorney Penney says that
he has received no intimation that the
defense will not be ready to proceed
with the trial on Monday morning.
It will be held before Justine True-

tbe dimensions, as given in the estimate referred to, are correct, and. as
.he ore seems to be of unifoim value,
there is no good reason to doubt that
the mines are capable of producing
the sum mentioned. There are, of
course, weak points about the statement, as for instance a smelter could
not be run continuously, as it would
bave to be shut down occasionally
for repairs. Of course, the sraeltei
capacity could be increased so as to
be twice 1,3 lO tons and in this way it
would talie less time to turn the
values in the ere into money. The
quantity of ore is there and the values
are pre ..'lit to tbe amount of iflTfi,-
000,000 above the 31*0 foot level, if the
figuring of the -boom.**. Pioneer man
is correct, uml Ils extraction and reduction arc mere matters of detail.and
with a sufficient equipment of machinery, a large force of miners and ample
sniciter capacity, it would be possible
to extract and redtics the ore in the
limits mentioned in live instead of no
The immense deposit ot ore in tin
Phoenix camp gives a dim Idea of
what Immense quantities of wealth
arc looked up In the mountain! of
Kootcnny and Yule. The Rut to camp
in Montana has produced about 8000,-

believe that the Phoenix camp, with
its much linger ore bodies, will have
when it is as old us Unite yielded as
much wealth as the Montana camp
The Comstock lode produced in round
numbers, about*$400,000,000 and the
NelsOu division whon a lew mon
mines like the I'mir, bave been exploited .'ind the district is a little
older .should have as large an amount
nut to thu credit of its mines. Eureka
county, Nevada, produced about 8130,-
000,000 and there Is one mine in the
Rossland camp, the Le Roi, the Deal
dvoloped property there, which, it is
claimed, provided it can be worked
down to a depth of 5,0(10 feet and the
values bold out, will yield alien!

this is too large a sum for a single

gking of tbe matter says; "Agitation for the establishment of n smel*
ter here ii having the desired effect.
.Mayor York has had two inquiries
from responsible outside parties, asking for information on the subject.
The eity stands ready to do everthing
in its power to encourage the location of a smehcl, am', tin* townntc
company will give a free site. Thut
is u good start, and it is being helped
out by tho   constantly   increasing   ore
hip'i ts from tbe division. So much
capital is liecoiiiing interested in tlie
camp, and the demand for dry ore is
such, that it is a certainty Influences
will be brought to bear to make Slo*
can a smelting ci ntro, The need is
grcu and the opportunity favorable."
Thu development of the dry ore belt
iu the Slocan is assuming considerable Importance, and is evidently an
important asset of that section. With
tbe increase in the quantity of wet
ore reduced by thc local smelters
there has come an augmented demand
for dry ore. which is essential for
fluxing the ores whien carry a high
percentage of lead. This has caused a
demand for dry ore properlies and
mineralized groun.1 even suspected of
containing this class of oie has buen
Bled on, there is a great deal of development ill progress and from mines
of this class shipments are being
made. The smelters reduce the dry
ores for a low price so there is
a proiit in them even when thoy arc

under tho stimulus of the dry ore
boom is getting its second wind.
Tl.c venture ol a transatlantic telephone is to be made by this American
Telephone and Telegraph Company,
which bought out. for thiee-quartors
of a million dollars the invention of
1'iofccsor 1'iipin. Thnt invention is
believed to have solved tho question
of long distance telepnony. It is bo
lieved that a cable telephone line
under the Atlantic could transmit
messages with about three hundred
times the rapidity of a telegraph cable
and for much nunc moderate charges,
l'rof. Puplll's patent covers thc discovery that by the insertion of little
inductive coils in the telephone wire
at  distances of one eighth ol a  mile
the electric current   is   renewed,    and
made operative for any required distance. Applied to land lines it enables
a very thin coppei wire to be as effective us a heavy wire is now.
The old controversy over sulphurous
fumes and theii disposition has
broken out again, this t inie at Ilnck-
lown In'Tonnesiee, says the Mining
and Engineering Journal. Recently
some farmers in the neighborhood applied foi an injunction to restrain the
Tenessee ('upper Company from operating its works, on the ground that the
suplhurous fumes given out wore destroying vegetation aud were nlso in-
juiious to health. The nsuiil temporary order was granted, but alter the
full beaiing in the case tbe court decided to refuse a permanent Injunction, aud permitted the company to
continue operations. Tlie complainants can, however, bring individual
suits for damages. A feature in the
case was tho presentation to the court
of a petition signed by 8,000 citizens
of Polk County, protesting against thc
injunction. Presumably nearly all the
pelllioneis had an interest In seeing
the mines at work, as they constitute
the only considerable industry of Polk
county, Whether the court decided
tlio ease ou the balance of benefits
conferred by the mines over injuries
Inflicted, does nut appear. It is not
likely, however, that o company,
whicli has invested a large amount of
money in mines and plant, will le
stopped; and the Tennessee court does
cot seem disposed to 11V it.

base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment lakes in lhe cold uir through a duct at the
rear of lhe fire pot, thc healed air being discharged in a circle at the top
of lire pol, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. Il can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or

to the heating capacity.
Where lhe stove is operated according to directions wc guarantee it to
consume all (lie gas contained in soft coil, thus deriving the. benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on lhe market. The stove will hold fire from

fiom tbe country adjoining Winnipeg
most, of them Hessian varieties of
apples, of a si/.e and llavor that sur
prised the delegates, who had no idea
that apples were grown   in .Manitoba.
Mr. Titsworth, of Hyde & Tits
���worth, stated to a Miner reporter yes
terday that the retail fruit trade was
n,iw at its liveliest, tiie wholesale
branch not being so brisk. During
the week largo quantities of plums
had been received from Washington
which had the effeot of lowering the
'Wholesale price. This was followed
by n price cutting contest among the
retailers of which the consumers bad
reaped the benefit. Ontariogropes had
also come in freely and the price liud
dropped considerably. Apples were
still firm and crabs apples wore
scarce for this season of the year.
Pears wen- probablj as low as thoy
wonld be lliib season, the dealers huv
ing cut prii"s on tturn In competition

Well told never gets old. Once more we would draw your attention to the STRONG points in our TEA
and COFFIiK, that is the flavor. We have been sending out so much Tea and Coffee lately that we feel
we are doing thc few who have not yet tried these goods, an injustice by not informing them of the fact, so
that they may go^vith the majority, buy the best, and have their spirits revived with a cup of delicious Tea
or Coffee. They arc both good, we Know it. If you haven't tried them how do you know, how can you tell
your neighbor who sells thc best.
Remember it is with Tea and Coffee, as with all our goods, if you don't like them send them   back,   but
our Tea and Coffee never come back, where they go .hey are used.
