Array Dail) Edition No. 193.
Nelson, British Columbia,   Wednesday, December 21,   1898.
Ninth Year.
Owing to an accident to tlie Canadian Pacific Telegraph wires caused by
snowslides resulting from the present
thaw, The Miner is unable this
morning to publish tho usual amount
of telegraph news. The wires went
down shortly after midnight when
only a small portion of the service bad
been received. Tho Minor regrets
that it must disappoint its ��� reodors
this morning but it is owing to circumstances over which, of course,
it has no control. Assurances have
beeu received from the Telegraph Com-
pany that tho defect will be remedied
at onto and that tomorrow morning
The Miner will contain its usual com
plote summary of the world's latest
visit to Lord Salisbury, tho British
Premier, at Ihe hitter's country residence, Hatfield House, Hertfordshire,
While tbo visit is said to bo of a
purely social nature, there is reason
to believe tbat Lord Salisbury and
Mr. White will discuss Iho attitude
of Great Britain towards the proposal
that the United States build the Nicaragua canal and with the view of arriving at an understanding regarding
the Bulwer-Olnyton Treaty.
Frightful Explosion of Powder Magazine in China-
Square Mile of Houses Wove Leveled to
the Ground by tlie Explosion.
London, Dec. 20.���A despatch
from Shaughni to a newspaper here
says that a powder magazine situated
in the centre of tho Chinese onmp
at Hang Chow has exploded aim thut a
square mile of houses hail been levelled. It is estimated, according to
the same authority, that 8000 soldiers
wero killed including tho general commanding the forces. Tho American
and Frouch missions are both reported
to havo been damaged but it is said
thero wero no fatalitios in them.
A Boulder  Works   Havoc   Noar   Bennington  Palls.
��� Tho train service yesterday between
Nelson and Robson was greatly retarded, the evening train especially being
over two hours late. The delay was
due to one of those accidents so common iu mountainous regions, and
against which no precautious can
About noon yesterday an immense
boulder came rushing down the mountain sido and plunged onto and tore up
the track finishing its course in tho
river. As soon as the nows of the ac-
ideut reached Nelson, n wrecking gang
were despatched lo tbe spot, near
the power house of the West Kootenay
Power and Light Company at Bou-
nington Falls.
Some of the rails, however, had
been carried away, and it was impossible to repair the damage yesterday, hence the delav in the arrival of
the trains. The train from Robson
came up as far as the break in the
line, uud tho passengers then got ont
and walked on to where another train
was in waiting to convey rhem to Nelson. The boulder is supposed to have
been started by a suowslide higher
up tho mountain.
Major Laurie, who fought with
Kitchener in the Soudan, is reported
to hii'io said that the Sird.u owes bis
life to a spider, The spider made a
nest in tbe top of his gelruet just before the buttle of Athhura. He recognized at once that the spider bail
obosen to constitute itsulf his mascot. Accordingly, he left the insect
undisturbed and went through the
battle without a wound. Grateful
for tbe protection linn c'early given
him by the spider, he n! lowed it to
remain in his helmet and ��� qnsaqnpntly
ibndurmnn without injury. He then
shipped lifilim" and spider home and
followed in poison to tell the story
to bis fiancee. His prospective mother-
in-law was so impressed by it that she
made bis bride a wedding present of
a diamond spider.

produced a great uproar. Tho Premier,
M Dupny, replied: "I should havo
thought that the Dreyfus affair had
already done tho country enough
harm. M. Fournior's new proposal
would be most pernicious. The country want and has an efficient army to
safeguard her independence and we do

Mr. E. Jacobs, special correspondent
of the Vancouver News-Advertiser iu
Iho Boundary Creek district, has
contributed a very intereating review
of the mining situation iu the Boundary Creek district, au exerpt from
which is given below.
The mining iudustry during the year
uow closing, has made ateady aud material advances, until the outlook is
today such as to give confidence that
the district will, in some measure,
pass during the coming year from the
stage of merely prospective to that of
ascertained value. There are several
mineral claims uow beiug developed
which appear to warrant this expectation, notably the Mother Lode, iu
tho Deadwood camp; tho Old Ironsides,
Knob Hill and Stemwiuder, in Greenwood camp; the Winnipeg, in Wellington cump; the B. O. iu Summit
camp; the City of Paris aud No. 7,
in Central camp and the Jewel in
Long Lake camp. Of courae the lie-
coinpliahment of this desirable transition is dependent upon a continuance
ul ocurv aiid srstiuintie- development
work. Thero are other claims���that
either have already attracted much
attention or may reasonably be ex
cepted to come into prominent uotico
ere long, conditionally that they, too,
be thoroughly prospected. It is both
gratifying, as regards tho preseut and
assuring tor tho future, to know that
more capital, wherewith to proseonte
this very essential dvolopmeut work,
has either already beon provided or
will in due time be available. One
only noeds to remember what baB
beeu done ou tho several claims named
above; that with two exceptions,
they are already equipped with steam
plants, nud that all but No. 7 are
still being vigorously opened up, to
feel satisfied that the Boundary Creek
district will during the coming year,
bo given opportunity to demonstrate
to some extent that its mineral resources are both large and valuable. But
this satisfaction must not be permitted to induce a relaxing of efforts
to prove without room for any
doubt that tbe district muy well claim
to be n wealth producer.    It is
that it be kept constantly in mind
that us Mr. W. A. Carlyle, lute Provincial Mineralogist, observed in his
official report on the district, "the
future of these camps reata greatly!
upon results of the development
It may be of interest to mention
some of the sources from which capital
baa been obtained. The Mother Lode
group has been equipped with the
largest mining plant yet brought into
the Boundary country and in being
developed iii a manner plainly Indicative of extensive and parliament operation by capital subscribed in New
YorkT' these properties being owned
by the British Columbia Copper Company, Limited, of that oity. The
Old Ironsides Mid Knob Hill are owned
by two coinpunies, named ufter the
respective claims, the principal stockholders being resident in Spokane,
Wash., anil in Eastern Canada, these
companies having their headquarters
in Monternl; the Stemwiuder is one
of a number of claims owned chieflly
by Messrs. Mackenzie, Mann & Holt,
of Toronto, and others interested
with them; much of the Treasury in
the Winnipeg Mining and Smelting
Company was subscribed in North Dakota ; about $1,00,000 has been expended by some English capitalists, who
eventually organized the British Columbia Copper Syndicate, of London
England, in purchasing equipping
and developing the British Columbia
claim ; tbe Oily of Pans has been
furnished with a plant by a Spokane
company which is doing excellent
work on the group, of which this
olaim forms one; the byndicate ol
New York capitalists which, before
ihe organization of the British Columbia Copper Company owned the Mo her
Lode as well, spent about $15,11(11) in
acquiring the No. 7 and several neighboring claims, and about $10,000 in
prospecting   them ;   whilst somewhere
about 160,000 represents  the expend*

Lake claims by Ihe Prospecting Syndicate of British Columbia, represented

MoFarluinl & McMahon, prior to the

Jewtd Development Syndicate, Limited, which is now further opening
up tho Jewel, * Thus it will bo seen
that capital has already been drawn
from England, from New York, North
Dakota and Washington in the United
Stntes, and   from   Montreal.   Toronto
aud other eastern Canadian cities.
These by no means represent all the
capital from outside, for not a little
money has come from other Canadian
aud Unitod States centres, aud Scotland, too, has contributed a share. Yet
they serve to bIiow that Boundary
Creek is already having widesnread
Precise particulars aro not available
to me just uow, other duties having
lately too largely engrossed my attention to admit of my paying personal visits to ihe several mining
camps in the district, but I believe I
am well within tho mark in estimating the uumhor of men at preseut on
the combined pay-rolls to bo not loss
than 150, whilst possibly it may
be nearer 200. This reference to the
number of mon employed brings to
mind the question of provision for
their safety. It cannot be snid that
this serious subject has as yet had the
attention it calls for. The district
has twice beeu briefly visited by the
Provincial Inspector of Mines���once hy
the first occupant of thut office nnd
Inter, when, twice within u fortnight
life wns lost iu district mine workings, by the present Inspector. It is
noteworthy, though, that with n few
exceptions provision���made first at
the Jewel aud later at the Mother
Lode���for the protection of men employed underground is generally inadequate to ordinary requirements of
snfety. A mnrked improvement ill
this respect may, however, be looked
for as devlopmeut work assumes a
more permanent aspect.
The miniug records of 1898 of the
Kettle River Mining Division (of
which Boundary Creek juat now forma
the most important port) show in comparison with those of 18!Hi and 1897, a
very marked decrease in several im
portaut particulars, but there are three
main reasons to which this may fairly
bo attributed. First, the returns are
to November !10, and so for 11 mouths
instead of tho full year; next, the
division was sub-divided early in
July 1897, so that aince that date numerous records have been made iu the
new Grand Forks Mining Division.
which, to make the compensation well
and fair, should he added to those
now under notice; and lastly, that
aa organized syndicales and companies
acquire individual claims or groups
of claims, und the Intervening country
becomes more thoroughly prospected,
tho number of location records must
necessarily dec-ease, the scone faa the
work of the prospector being re. v. i-
ed, with the natural result thai these
"advance agents" of mining work-
seek "fresh fields and pastures   new."
Location records ami the number of
Froe Miners' certificates issued during
1S98, therefore, for these several reasons, show much smaller totals. It is
evident, though, that these decreases
do not uecessrily involve retrogression.

Insure ehanw
Interest in the mining industry of
British Columbia is steadily increasing. This is apparent not only from
the newspapers of Eastern Canada but
of Great Britain. The fact iB alto
gether an agreeable one, as it augurs
well for the future of tbe Provinoe,
whoso enormous mineral wealth is be
yond computation. Many of tbe
leading newspapers in tbe East, those
of Montreal and Toronto for instance,
attach so much importance to tbe development tbat is going on here that
they give largely of their space to British Columbia mining news. It is
not a little gratification to observe
tbat Tbe Nelson Miner is more quoted
than any other of tbe Provincial papers. And thereby hangs a subject for
a short sermon.
It is the desire of the preseut management of The Miner to make it
tbe indisputable authority on British
Columbia mining news. There is
only one thing to prevent this; we are
not sure, indeed, that it can be prevented, but it may be delayed. Nelson is the mining centre of the Pro-
Tinoe. That claim may be disputed
for the moment; but a short time will
demonstrate to the most doubtiug
that it is a fact beyond question. It
ii the commercial centre, aud will remain so. Everything will converge
towards it iu the course of time, and
circumstances are conspiring to make
that time a brief one. It is in the
heart of a rich mining region of great
extent. North, south, east, and west,
the prospect is the same���certain aud
rich mineral development. Nelson
will be the centre around which the
principal mining operations will revolve. Nature has assured the situation, and The Miner, ns far as lies
in its power, will do its share.
It remains only tbat mining men
and men interested in mining development shall do theirs. We want the
moat reliable mining news that is to
be obtained, and we want it the instant it becomes news. For this, much
vf ill have to depend on our own enterprise. Whatever energy, and nn expense consistent with a small Daily
struggling to establish itself, can accomplish we can promise; but it will
be uphill work without the sympathy
and oo-operatiou of the mining publio, and that other publio whose interests are identicnl. If these will help
to make The Nelson Daily Miner the
authority ou mining uews to which nil
outsiders cnu appeal with confidence,
they will be doing a service to The
Minor of course, but thoy will bo doing at the nnme time a sorvico of eveu
greater value to Nelson uud to the
district of which it is the natural
oentre. For everything thut contributes
to the success of its lending newspaper oontributes iu even lnrger degree
to the success of the community in
wihch it in published.
There is uecessarily no connection, it
may be snid, between reciprocity in
lead ores nnd its products und pelagic
sealing in the neighborhood of the
Pribyloff islands. That is quite true.
But in respect to the Behring Sea
affair the United States is asking a
sacrifice from Canada, and n sacrifice
all the benefits of which will accrue
in time to the Uuited Stutes. We are
asked to surrender our rights in the
open sea. Iu respect to tho Atluutic
fisheries we are asked to surrender
privileges to whioh, under treaty,
the United States hns no olaim, We
nre asked to surrender and yield all
along the line. It is possible thut the
Canadian Commissioners at Washington may do this, in which case a new
treiuy to please the heart of Mr. Joseph Chnmberlain, who is so bent gu n
friendly nlliance with the Uuited
States, is easily within roach, without
the faiutest reference to reciprocity.
But recipocity is the price we ask
for the concessions demanded of us.
We can bave no earthly object in surrendering our rights in Behring Sea
or in the Atlantic if we obtain nothing in return for our complaisance.
No one disputes the right of the
United States to make her tariff to
suit herself. For some reason she has
thought it expedient to make one that
is anything but favorable to Canada;
it hits Canadian trade very hard.
We are anxious that our neighbors
should let down the bars a little, so
that it will be possible to do trade
with th6m in certain products on
equal terms. If they will do this we
are willing to make any reasonable
coucessions in respect to those other
matters. But if the concessions should
be made without receiving a measure
of reciprocity, or a lowering of hos
tile duties, the Canadian Commissioners nre likely to have nn exceedingly
lively reckoning with Parliament nt
its next session. And if a measure
of reciprocity be obtained, it is quire
possible too that it may he insufficient as a return for the concessions
which the Americans declare are the
least they will consider.
When the Joint High Commissioners
���t Washington disperse in n day or
two to enjoy their Christmas holidays,
they will no doubt have a good idea
whether a treaty is within the probabilities. It is reasonable at least to
assume from tho fact that they will
oontinue the negotiations after the
holiday period that the prospect of a
happy issue is still hopeful. But if
we are to put any confidence in the
reports that come out from Washington in greatest numbers, there seems
little hope of a reciprocity clause, and
without a reciprocity clause it is not
easy to see how a treaty of any kind
ia possible. It is true that Canada
may consent to some final disposition
of suoh vexing questions us the Behring Sea affair, the Atlantic fisheries,
coasting regulations, the bonding privilege, border immigration, and suoh
like, without stipulating for a trado
arrangement that would give freer nc-
oeBg to the American market; but
lt ia    hardly   likely  she  will do so.
A Toronto despatch a few days ago
conveyed the intelligeuco that Mr.
Wm. Mackenzie and associates were on
the way to Havanu to purchase n streot
railway franchise Fuller information from tho East reveals a rather
singular state of things in connection
with the mattor. The franchise was
a eouces8ion from the Autonomous
Government, which iu name at least
has beeu the ruliug civil authority in
Cuba since Spain proclaimed responsible government for tho island. The
concession is said to have been a
huge fi mill, and the public sale of the
franchise, advertised for Thursday
last, wns prohibited by the Amerienn
authorities, bonded by President McKinley himself. It is even said'that
the visit of those two American wnr-
ships to Havana wns for the purpose
of stopping the sale. Mr. Mackenzie
has evidently ruu up against a very
large sized snag.
Our excellent contemporary, the
Rossland Eveuiug Record, is disposed
to be indignant because no one, "at
home or abroad," has challenged its
estimate of Rosslaud's population,
which it puts at 8,000. We are afraid
there aro many in the Province who
would like to challenge that part of its
distribution which gives, out of
these 8,000, 260 "sporting mon" and
125 "sporting women. " With these exceptions British Columbians generally
will be glnd to concede tho 8,000, and
will rejoice when the number is

Now Hint tbo oity bus not possession
of the Eleotrio Light plant, steps are
beiug taken to endure nn Adequate
wator power. Clearwater Greek, called by some the headwaters of tlie Salmon River, and Roaring Crock have
been staked, and n flume will bo built
to divert their waters into Cottonwood Creek.
Mr. MeCnllocli, tbe city engineer,
lias inspected the new creeks, anil,
after a series of tests, lie estimated
that 430 miners' incl es of water cau
now be obtained from Clearwater
creek. Considerable water will alio
be derived from Roaring Creek. Tbis
additonal will, it is expeoted, make a
great Improvement in tbo Electric
Light service in town. Tbe arc lights
will be turned on, and the residential
portion nf the town, from which the
lights aro now cut off, will again be
lighted up.
It will bo necessary to build a flume
about three miles in length to carry
tho water to Cottonwood Smith Creek,
and, once this is done, the authorities
are confident that tbe present unsatisfactory service will be remedied. It
is estimated that tbe building of the
flume will not requiro moro than
three weeks time and tbat by tho middle of January the service will be first
class in evory respect. A large staff of
men will be put to work as soon us
tho engineers complete their part of
the work.
Some   Mongolians Engage  in   a Bout

There was trouble in Chinatown on
Monday, and the aggrieved Mongolian
appealed yesterday before Police Magistrate E. A. Crease to obtain redress.
His namo was Lim Yet Lou, and he
is employed as a cook in the tenderloin
portion of the town.
Mr. Lim, etc., is a peaceful gentleman and constitutionally averse to
trouble of any kind, but notwithstanding ho succecdod in amassing a black
eye ou the day mentioned, and be wns
most anxious that retribution should
fall on tbo head of his assailant. It
appears thut on Monday be visited
Kwong Lee's laundry to get tho washing for the establishment where he is
employed. Intent on his errand, he
forgot to close the door after coming
in. At this dereliction of duty. Kwong
Lee's Tartar blood boiled Ho swore
at him. and Lim swore at him. During this outburst of enraged uiigram-
matical profanity tbe door still remained open. Kwong Lee could stand
it no longer and arising iu his might
he smote Mr. Lim. Lim fell prostrate. After A time he gathered himself together, and went slowly but
Tindictivoly up to tbo City Hall where
he laid an information.
When brought up Kwong Lre
pleaded guilty, bht slated that lie bad

Last Night's Meeting Postponed Until
Tomorrow Evening.
The meeting of tbo Nelson Curling
Club, to be held last evening, wns
postponed until Thursday night when
it will be held in Judge Forin's chambers at the Court House at eight
o'clock, sharp. The meeting will con-
aider the report of tbe committee appointed to make arrangements for securing ioe for tho uso of the curlers
this winter. Tho outlook at present
is not as bright as the curlers would
like but they still havo hopes of securing two sheets of ice whether or
not they can come to terms with the
builders of the new rink.
Howovor, such a small mailer as not
securing ice should not stand in the
way of tho completion of the organization of tho club and tbo procuring of
stones as there will be plenty of opportunities for Nelson curlers to visit
neighboring towns and test their skill
against other Kootenaians at local
bonspeils. Affiliation with the Kootenay Association should be effected ill
order that tho club will be iu good condition for next season. By that time
it is expeoted that the ciuling club
will have a riuk of its own us a joint
itouk company oan easily be organized
to oroct one next summer.
The fact that curling stones nro on
the free list will enable the club to
secure a supply from Spokane at a low

I A Spokane, Wash, mine operator
says lhat he "will never again hnvo
anything to do With the organization
of a treasury stock corporation; almost
every failure iu milling operations
hereabout may be traced to tbat pernicious system. " He goes too far in
such wholesale denunciation of a system thnt nt times does not deserve
such general verdict, yet. ns n steady
business proposition I be Sookane
operator is finding out, as a good many
before him bave discovered, tbat tbe
assessment system is the only satisfactory one. True, 10 tbe inexpert
encod or credulous there is a charm in
tbo words "paid Up and non-assessable " on a stock certificate or in a
prospectus, but that is only a nioely
sounding phrase. Those who mean
business and contemplate continuous
working of the properly find fewer
obstacles in the assessment plan thnn
in any other co-operative system that
was ever deviled.
Another society, which will help to

got together with a viow to organizing such a club, and a meeting will
shortly bo called for that purpose.

Mr. R. E. Lemon   is the Recipient of
a Useful   Present.
' Tho numerous friends of that well
known and popular old timor,
"Bob" Lemon, wore very much struck
with the efficient way in which be
presided over the recent resurrection
of the bodies in the old cemetery, so
muoh so, indeed, that they dubbed
him the "Angel Gabriel." It was
generally felt, however, that one
thing was lacking to enable Mr.
Lemon to perform bis exalted duties
with due pomp and circumstances.
The city had neglected to provide the
modern'Gabriel with a trumpet, and
a number of citizens tooknpon themselves to remedy this glaring instance
of civic neglect. Accordingy, on Monday evening, as Mr. Lemon was
seated in the yueon's Hotel, a deputation came in, and, witb the solemnity
befitting so important au occasion,
presented Mr. Lemon with a handsome
and serviceable trumpet.
Mr. Lemon overwhelmed by this unexpected token of the general appreciation of his gilts, at first could hardly
find words to express himself. He
soou recovered himself, howevor, and,
with apt fluency, ho gracefully replied
to the deputation. So fur as is known
Mr. Lemon has not yet used the instrument,   but,   when    the  occasion

There is yet too little snow on the
ground for rawhiding or sleighing.
Additional suow is wanted for theso
purposes. With more snow shipments would greatly increase. The
Emily Edith mine will be joining
the list of shippers early iu the year

The Molly Oibson Company is
making application for a Government
grant in aid of a wagon road up Kokanee Creek to the mine. The Com.
pauy has spent a good deal of money
on tho existing trail but, proper transportation facilities are sadly needed.
Tho proposed road would bo 12 milos
in length, and the total elevation to
the surmounted is only -I."i00 feot. Tho
Hon. J. Fred Hume, minister of
mines hns ondorscd tbu application,
thus this important mining section
will soou bo opened up. Tho hills
on both sides of Kokanee creek are
almoBt completely staked. At present no oro is being exported to the
smolters. Tbo output of the mine is
being rawbided down to n point just
above No. 1 Creek, whoro ore houses
have been erected, and it will be kept
there until there is sufficient snow to
permit of it being hauled to   the lake.

Recent assays from the Red Rock
mineral olaim givo tbe most encouraging returns of 8! por cent copper
and 50 ounces of silver to the ton.
The olaim, which bolougs to Mr. L.

west of the Hall Minos wagon road.

Two mining divisions have been established in northern British Columbia, the former Bennett Lake division
being divided, one portion retaining
the old name and the other being
known as the Atlin Lake mining division. The definitions of the boundaries are ns follows: Bennett Division���Commencing at a point where
the northern boundary ot British Colombia intersects tbe west shore of
Tagisb lake; thence southerly, following tho west shore of the suid lake to
its southern extremity; thence southerly along the height of land betweou
the Lynn canal aud the Taku river
to the international boundary;
thence following the said boundary
northerly and westerly to tbe intersection of the northern boundary of British Columbia; thence east to tbo point
of commencement.
Atlin Division���Commencing at a
point where the   northern boundary ot
British Columbia intersects the
height of land between Tosliu and Atlin lakes; thence southwesterly, following the height to tbe watershed
between Pike lake and Kateene river;
thence southwesterly to the eastern
boundary of tbe Bennett lake mining
division; tbeuco northerly along
the said boundary to the northern boundary of Brtish Columbia;
thence east to the point of commencement.

Toronto World: Iu all probability
another big Rossland mine will before
the year is out fall into the hands of
Toronto capitalists. Yesterday afternoon a local broker, on behalf of Hon.
George A. Cox und several associates,
obtained uu option ou a controlling
interest in the Jumbo. The bond
allows tin senator a short time in
which to examine tbo property, and
he ha* tho privilege of within that
period taking ud 251,000 of the half
million "dollar" shares at which the
property is cnpitaliaed. M. R. Gal
nsha of Spokane is the chief owner of
the Jumbo, and it is through him
that the present deal will, if it eventuates, be put through. As already
indicated, tbe present capitalization
of the Jumbo is 1500,000, and it is
understood that if tho Toronto men
got hold of it they will reorganize the
company with a capital of 11,250,000
giving the old stockholders two shares
for every one they now hold. From
40,000 to 50,000 shares of Jumbo stock
are held in Toronto and other Ontario
# *   *
Another mine tributary to Nelson
is showing np well. The Rossland
Miner says: Two chunks of retorted
gold, the result of the first ten-day
clean up at the Porto Rioo, were
brought to Rossland on Monday by A.
B. Irwin and W. H. Corbould of the
Canadian Pacific Exploration Company
whioh owns the now famous property. The clean up proved even moro
successful than was expected. Although a number of inevitable delays
attended the first trial of the new mill,
due to short water supDly, yet in 10
days the works handled "over 140 tons
of ore. Definite values have not yet
beeu learned, but it is evident that the
ore has au approximate value of $40
per ton. One of the pleasing features
of the clean-op is the discovery that
the mill has saved 94 per cent of the
assay values. Most ot the gold is recovered on the plates About 20 tons
of concentrates was saved. The concentrates are more than usually high
in the proportion of iron, and on that
account an exoelleut smelter rate can
be secured for their treatment.
The Porto Rico is working about 40
men at the mine and mill, aud the
employes of the mine from a little colony of their own at the property, six
miles form Porto Rico siding on the
Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railway.
Four machine drills are at work in the
tunnels aud stopes, aud enough oro is
already in sight to operate the mill
at a capacity of 25 tuns daily for tho
next eight mouths Development work
will be actively pushed. The oro can
be handled very economically, as it
is dropped through the chutes of tbe
upraise from No 2 to the No. 3 level,
whence it is curried for a distance of
2,500 feet by a gravity tramway to the
Mr. Irwin returns to tbo mine. Mr.
Corbould, who is managing director
of the company, leuves this morning
for his home in London.
