entertained ii doubt from the day
that he purchased an interest in

Tliat a smelter is to be erected
there is now definitely agreed upon

be greatly beneficial. Many more

SAYINGS \Y>
AND OTH Kit WISH
Mr. Heinze is known as one of
the most energetic and successful
you ig mining men of the West. He
has a'm'ple'means at his 'command
and will have the smelter completed and in operation in less
time than a smelter was ever built
in before. '
- One hundred men will prepare
the ground and t.he machinery will
lie shipped from. Butte not .later
than Sept. 10th. Prior to that
lime the contracts for the brick
and stone work will have been let.
It is expected that the entire plant
will be in operation before the end
uf November.

Preftbyterians Meet.
The meeting in the Presbyterian
church on Wednesday evening was
very   largely   attended.    After the
formal opening Rev. Ih\ Robertson
preached briefly of the use to which
ihe Bible should be put—a light to
dispel intellectual and moral darkness.   Rev. C. W. Gordon of Winnipeg then sang "I shall be satis-
lied " and   the "Land o' the Leal,"
accompanying himself on the guitar.    He is a very superior singer,
his equal is not often heard.   The
clearness, softness  and   melody of
his voice made his rendering of the
"' Land o' the Leal " especially pleasing.    His address  followed, and
was   of   a   lively   and   interesting
character,   principally  concerning
missionary work in the West, complimenting  the  energy which had
erected   this    church    here.      Or.
Robertson spoke again, this time of
the western missions of the Presbyterian  Church, of which  be   has
been   the superintendent for fourteen years,dwelling.especially upon
the , work   contemplated   at   Ross-
lainl.   He said that whal they had
seen of, the life and energy of the
town had decided them to send an
ordained minister to lake charge of
this pulpit when H.J. Robertson,
the student missionary, returns to

A. Chemical Engine  Best  for BosbIiiiuI.
To the Editor of the Prospector.
Sin,—I notice in your last issue
that at a meeting of citizens the
tire wardens were empowered to
purchase buckets, ladders, ropes
and what other appliances were
necessary for the extinction of fire.
This is a step in the right direction.
RueketSj bidders And ropes are a\-
ways to lie found in a well-equipped
lire station. But these adjuncts
will be of little avail without the
tine thing necessary—a fire engine.
U may reasonably be asked, "Of
what use would a fire engine be
here, where there is no available
Wiiter supply?" A steam fire engine or hose reels would certainly
be useless in Rossland at present;
but a chemical engine would fill
the bill, and give us a fire extinguisher that would hot only be
a guarantee of security from conflagrations bllt Would also cut down
our insurance rates considerably.
Revelstoke has no water system,
but she lias a snia.ll chemical engine which hits been of great service. It is a single cylinder, of (I
think) 60-gallon capacity, mounted
"on two wheels and drawn by hand.
This engine, with about 150 feet of
best rubber hose and all the necessary tools and appliances, cost in
the neighborhood of $800'. Vancouver has a two-horse, four-wheel
chemical engine, from the same
makers. 1 do not know the exact
capacity, whether 100 or 200 gallons, and the price was something
less than $2,000'. Many towns and
cities in Ontario are equipped with
these Chemical engines, and from
anything 1 have heard to the contrary ttiey have given entire satisfaction in every instance.   Toronto

than by public subscription, as to

mean the same period as waiting
for the water works—-and it would

many handsome and commodious
buildings, could not raise that sum

The trouble between the Dominion Government and the Province
of Manitoba is no nearer settlement
than it was months ago. On the
contrary) expressions in the east
are assuming more of an angry
tone.    Here are some of the latest:
"A rumor has been telegraphed
from Winnipeg to the effect that if
theGreenway Government does not
offer some compromise on the
school question they will be dismissed from olV.ee by Lieutenant-
Governor Schliltz. The consultation of Premier Bowe'l, Minister of-
Interior Daly and BieUtenant-Gov-
ernor Schultz is supposed to lend
color the report.
The Kingston Daily News (Conservative), in an article headed
"Foolish Manitoba," says:
" Does Manitoba want to be
whipped into subjection by force of
arms? Is it aching for ii third

continue to insult the Dominion

is excellent, but Lady Aberdeen

But the fact that one cylinder can
be refilled while the other is being
emptied, necessitating no stoppage
of the flow from the nozzle, marks
the great superiority of the double
cylinder. Ever since these chemical engines have been in use in the
Queen City they have done almost
all the work of extinguishing fires,
being always the first to be called
out.

That" newspapers supply just what

correct. They usually supply a
better article, morally, than the
public demands. It is well known
to publishers that such publications
as the " Poiice Gazette " and various
" Suns," " Mercurys " and " Blades"
have larger sales than other publications whose publishers exclude
sensational and immoral articles.

majority of publishers could increase their revenues from 25 to 100

more than that. Though making

at the end of two years. What,
then, is the best, safest and cheapest course to adopt for protection
from fire in the interim? A double-
cylinder chemical, with hose and
all appliances, could be set down
in Rossland for a trifle over $2,000.
This sum should not be dillicult to
raise, spread over, say, twelve
months, as the manufacturers gave
that length of time to the Revelstoke people. The Provincial Government gives a min.' nutn sum of
$250 a year to all towns in the
province for lire purposes, and our
town is as much entitled to it as
her older sisters. Then, again, the

iVliasc  of  such an   engine.     These
are within their reach, and in the

public a better paper morally than
it demands.

CAMPBELL BROS., Rossland, I Have Changed Their Titles.
Extract-.from ,a newapn.per correspondent's notebook: ,, ;
"AH day long we niet miners and
prospectors' tramping along, and
every now and then heard the report of blasting-in the mountains.
Prospectors are everywhere, "and in
the opinion of a man'in a position
to judge there is' likely to be a
second Rossland between that
thriving camp and Boundary. As
for the minors and prospectors we
met, their story' was' always the
same. It is'no use pr6speoting any
more round Rossland. Every bit
of land is staked out all rouiid it
and for a dozen utiles east of it.
There are splendid mines and prospects there, and it' is a first-rate
camp, but those who arc looking
for anything there now must be
looking for dirt, not mineral."
It is undoubtedly true that not
('lily the.suburbs of Rossland,but a
iarge proportion of the adjacent
country, are covered .with prospectors' ,'■ stakes, and .within
that radius the, prospector,, as a
prospector,, finds his occupation
pone1, but as a mine-owner and
prospective millionaire the pros-
Jiector is .still very much in ievidence in Rossland. lie has assumed a more distinguished title,
that's all.
How llossland Whs Started.
A oorrespon-dpnt of the Province,
■'fter writing an interesting description of a horsebaek journey from
Boundary to Rossland, says:
"Practically we -have nothing
now on Sheep Cflbek, and yet Sheep
Creek—or rather the C-olvilie Indian
Reserve and a- belief that it was
about to be thrown Open, for settlement lias had a ileal to do with
the development of this district.
For years it had been known that
there were rich diggings in the reserve, and scores of American prospectors have made expeditions into
the country iir Spite of the law.
However, they never managed to
effect their purpose. During the
last two or three years a number of
them have been waiting, as it were,
on the edge of the promised land;
for the signal to go in and possess
it. That signal has not'come yet,
but in the meantime, for want of
anything' better tb do, they have
been prospecting on the Canadian
side of the line, the restilt being the
discovery and subsequent development of Rossland and the surrounding district."
Itedllf-.tioii Works A .ISJne   Ilevelopmcui.
Persons of limited experience in
mining seldom realize how much
development must be done in a
mine before a mill or reduction
works of any kind are necessary to
treat the ore of that mine. The
West is strewn with mills, smelters
and concentrators that have never
turned a wheel or have worked but
a few months.
The only eafe rule is that a mine
should have enough ore in sight to
net the cost of a mill or reduction
plant and show a good profit bo-
sides before works are begun.
Smooth promoters and inexperienced superintendents many times
persuade the owners or investors
that such and such a plant for reducing their ore is needed, when
but little work lias been clone and
the ore that can ' positively lie
counted on would not run the proposed works a month. The result
of this is often a large and useless
expenditure for machinery, on
which the promoter probably gets
a commission, and when the short
run has been made the startling
discovery is made that the mine is
out of ore, and there is no more to
be found. The investors have lost
their money and feel that they
have been gulled some way, and
curse mining for ever after as a
delusion and a snare, if not worse.
Ordinary care and a business sense
would have saved this result. Develop your mine thoroughly and
build your work's'according to the
ninount and quality of your ore.—
Bpbkahle Mineri
Missed Its Opportunity*
The .Province, speaking of the
recent activity of smelting rumors
in Wesf^ Kootenay, says : " For a
time question of the site for a large
custom's smelter seenis'to-'have subsided. The agents of the great
works of the United Stales who
were here have temporarily left thp
country. ;This is doubtless partly
owing to the decision of the Hall
mines to erect their own works.
Had they made a bargain, as they
might have done with the Kajnsas
City Smelting,Cp., there is.np.doubl
that .that institution, one of the
largest of its kind in the States,
would have put up extensive works,
and Nelson would have, become q
smelting center. It remains to lie
proved whether, after all, the Hall
mines would not have- been- better
advised to submit their ore to treatment, .by people who thoroughly
understand the business, without
any risk, than to undertake the
building 'and working of a smelter
themselves. The previous history
of the working of the Silver King
mine certainly does not encourage
public opinion here to regard its
new .venture as a probable success!
If a failure results, the management will be liable to severe censure
for not adopting the safer course."
Hon- lie Worked n Mine.
'' IfoW dp we work a niine?'' exclaimed the Sheep MonntiHtieer;
"Well, you unsophisticated, undeveloped outcropping of th'e land of
the rising sun, I'll proceed to en*
lighten your beclouded college-bred
understanding."
The college-bred voting man from
the land of the rising'sun sat down
»n a 800-dbliar-to-tKe-fcon chunk of
ore artd'turned his undivided attem
tion to listening to a discourse 'oil
mineralogy.
" We first prospect around until
we find a tunnel in on the jugular
vein and a pile of ore'on thedump;
then, If the other feller ajnt lookin',
we junip'the claim". Then we pro
eeed to sink a shaft on the float,
gather all the gangue and sack it,
being careful to preserve technical
phrases in ininenilogical science in
so doin'. Then ' we prospect the
stockholders with an assessment,
and if they don't come down put
in a blast! At this point we call
the roll, grab a No. 4, warranted
not to rip, wear, tear, ravel, cut or
run down at the heel, ragical, tragical, irrasive smelter, and run up
our stack. If the other feller holds
the best hand the stack will diminish, and we consequently drift for
a pay streak. If we don't get
through driftin' by fall it's the first
thing we go at in the spring. We
now concentrate our efforts, and if
the silver panned out don't' have
the eagle stamped on it we sample
the outcroppin' in every saloon
within ti radius of ten miles, and
take a chew of terbaccer. Then we
get to work in earnest, salt the
dump, and go east and sell all the
stock we can. We return, renew
our grub pile, pack it into the
cabin, and wait for spring to open
up and the snow to go off. During
this .period we amuse ourselves
playing seven-up for the drinks.
We then import a niinin' and civil
engineer, run a few levels, cross-cut
for another assessment, get it, cave
in ! the shaft and abandon (he
property. Then," and the Sheep
Mountaineer paused a moment to
catch his breath, but the moment
was fatal to his learned discourse,
for the college-bred young man
from the land of the rising sun
feebly reached for his pick, staggered slowly to his feet, looked wildly
through the limpid atmosphere towards the summit of Sheep Mountain ami disappeared behind the
giant outcroppings of Ihe Big Eliza
lode.—Lump City Miner.

pA^PtpowN, Rossland, Aug. 24.
Probably few people are awaro
that not far from this famous- mining town there is another place
Which is gaining a large population
as well as gaining favor. ' I refer
to Camptown, which is situated on
the heights north of Rossland. The
Vancouver elepient is in the ascendency,, apdithay are,a great people,
mostly ,real estate, men, As Max
O'.IieJl says of the Americans, we
arc a greitt nation, having a population of sixty millions, mostly
colonels and captains.
On. first striking Caniptown you
noti.ee with . pleasure the life and
bustle which is going, on around
you-the: continuous hammering
of the carpenter and builder, the
cheery .voices from the different
camps, the crackling of the fires,
and the. appetizing odor arising
from the good things in the frying-
pan. Sometimes you are startled
by the. cry of anguish when some
poor.unfortunate happens to grasp
the heated side of the pan; and
again there are those who arc continually ','chewing the rag," who
are-always grumbling as to'who is
to cook, and this and that does not
suit them; but Iam'glad that these
are only exceptional cases and
mostly used in fun.
■ At night it is a picturesque and
weird sight to visit the different
camps, with their groups of human
faces encircling the fires, passing
their time spinning yarns and telling, I have iho doubt, many a good
fish story.
The night I spent in camp my
partners were' a little 'under the
weather'with'bad colds,'so we retired early, but not' to sleep, owing
greatly   to   the   continual- boom
caused  by blasting at the mines,
... ■
reminding one'of the bombardment
of Alexandria, and to the sudden
exclamation from one of the camp';
ers who professed to have-stniek
the only hard'sptit on ' the face of
Mother Earth.
It may not be out of place to
enumerate (for the information of
those intending to start camp life)
the articles we have in our camp:
Cue sheet-iron stove, frying-pan,
tin cups, kettles, spoons, knives,
forks, etc.; for seats we have a couple of nail kegs, a piece of plunk
with supports for a table, and a
few shelves for our eatables, which
usually consist of rice, bacon, ham,
beef, honey, potatoes, milk, etc.,
and we are all willing to aflirm
that we live like railway magnates;
in fact, one member of our camp
circle is complaining of gout, no
doubt induced by the high living.

Joe Mulhattan, the ablest prevaricator on top of (lod's green
earth, is in San Francisco. Mr.
Mulhattan is the author of the petrified copper forest of Arizona, the
vinegar mine of Montana, the Arizona tree which devoured birds, the
rinding of the whale that swallowed Jonah, the big mammal
being identified by Jonah's name
being carved on the whalebone; the
geese that weeded the garden patch
and had gourds about their necks
containing water, so that the other
geese might step up and drink, and
many others. His latest is about
an Arizona mine that assays $6,000
a ton, of which he is desirous of
disposing of his interest. A careful

A Seven TJUten Winner.
The following paragraph from
iln- Mining World of Butte city
may have been read by you, gentle
reader, before, but as it concerns
the man who has undertaken to
erect a smelter at Trail, you may

he is by some of the most, influential moneyed men of the East, Mr.
Heinze is recognized as one of the
most progressive young men of the
West, and Ihe 'frail Creek people
may justly pride themselves mi
getting him interested in their
country. This alone establishes
beyond a doubt the fact that the'
boom now on in that section has \
triore than ordinary merit behind j
it. and we may look for an era of I
development that will exceed even
< Ii nerai Warren's fondest hi p is.
Tb • general was one of the pioneers
of frail Creek, predicting with all
: be whcmcnoi   he possesses  that it
would   be   a  seven  times winner
and the general makes feW mistakes
in.this line."
