CAMP BOUNDING FORWARD
Shipping at Rate of 400,000 Tons
Yearly.
ANOTHER CONCENTRATION PLANT
War Eagle and Centre Star Are to Build Near Trail-
Le Roi No. 2 Is Shipping to the Greenwood
Smelter.
Fatally Injured
Winnipeg, Sopt. 12.—William
Buckland, a Melita farmer, became
entangled in a separator belt while
threshing today, and was whirled
around the wheel, receiving fatal
injuries.
The partioular news of the week
is the final decision of the War
Eagle and Centre Star mines to
erect their concentrator on the
Columbia, river, not far from the
confluence of that river and Stoney
creek. The plant will begin with a ■'
capacity of 200 tons daily. Water
for the plant will be obtained from
Murphy, Rock and Stoney creeks,
being teken at lower points than
those rights already possessed by
the oity and need not necessarily
conflict with the municipality. The
long standing feud is now possible
of amioable settlement if this mining company is willing. As for the
water rights belonging to the Trail
«roe1ter these have been surrendered to the new mill on the condition that the water used be returned into Stoney creek.
The new mill will, therefore, be
some fifteen miles from Rossland
along the .railroad track, though
barely half that distance in a
direct line. The railway people,
the owners of the Trail smelter,
are also willing to grant an exceeding favorable freight rate.
What the Trail smelter is getting out of the bargain is not immediately apparent nor has it
transpired. But the treating of the
concentrates by the smelter and its
consequent ability to produce a
higher grade matte is an advantage.
Also the presence cf concentrates
which contain no silica, helps out
the question of flaxes, and the
Trail smelter will no longer be dependent upon iron ores to supply
it with necessary flux, and consequently will be in a better position
to demand a higher rate for smelting such ores. This may be considered another advantage. It is
rumored, however, that the real
reason why the Trail smelter has
been bo considerate ia that the
works are to be sold to the Gooder-
hama, the owners of the mineB now
in treaty with it. The truth or
falsity of this cannot at present be
ascertained.
The reduotion works to be erected
are in consequence of the Buooessf ul
experiments carried out last year
by Gerald Hopkins at Silica, and
there oan be no donbt as to their
commercial practicability. It is
certain than $8 ore oan be suocess
fully treated at a handsome profit.
Beyond this Manager Kirby has
not committed himself but he has
openly expressed hia opinion that
eventually $5 ore oan be mined at
a profit.   The process used is sup
posed to be a secret, but sufficient
of its nature was dieolosed in the
action brought by Gerald Hopkins
against the War Eagle to show tbat
the main concentration was in the
use of vanners and tables, using
water freely and oyaniding the tailings. The point is how the iron
and cyanide will agree. The original manager of the Silica works,
Lionel Webber, insisted that he
had succeeded in counteracting
this by eorne elaborate process of
syphoning.
The Le Roi No. 2 is not shipping
this week to Northport, and has in
consequence of the visit of Manager MoAlister of the Greenwood
smelter, transferred the treatment
of its ores to those works-.
The Velvet is still shipping fines
of whioh there are about 1500 tons
on the dump capable of yielding a
small profit.
The Le Roi No. 2 concentrator is
making rapid progress, and the
only thing delaying the mill at
present is the arrival of a second
Chilian mill, whioh must be installed before the concentrator
can be properly at work. Within
the course of a very few weeks
now the capability of the Elmore
process of. successfully treating
Rossland low grade ores of a silici-
ous base will be thoroughly demonstrated to the mining public in general, not only in Rossland but
elsewhere sb the momentuous experiment is being carefully watched.

GOODEVE   NOMINATED
Rossland     Conservatives
Choose Their Standard
Bearer.
A. S. Goodeve was chosen standard bearer by the RoBsland. Conservatives at their convention held
last evening inMiners' UnionjHall.
The vote was {practically unanimous, although C. E. Race was
also proposed. Mr. Race desired
to withdraw, but the chairman, A.
H. MaoNeill, pointed out to him
that he had not been seconded.
This, however, was thereupon done.
On being subsequently asked to
pledge himself to to the support ot
A. S. Goodeve, Mr. Race declined
to do BO.
Mr. Goodeve, as ia well known,
is a prominent citizen of Rossland,
and a pioneer, having been twice
may or of the oity (before the strike)
and has always been closely identified with municipal affairs. During the oandidature of Governor
Mackintosh and of John McKane
Mr. Goodeve did yeoman service
for the Conservatives, and his present nomination is only dne him by
his party.
YET ANOTHER
EXCITEMENT
Fresh Rush Is  Made to
Poplar.
TOWNSITE PANS ALLUVIAL GOLD
No Places for the Houses-Placer
Diggings Are Discovered
Everywhere!
Poplar, Sept. 12.—The latest excitement at the oamp has arisen
through the discovery that practically all the gravel beds in the'
valley here are gold bearing, oolora
being obtainable everywhere from
the moss down. This was observed last Monday, and as a result
over forty locations were made the
first day, and about thirty since.
Tbe Poplar oreek townsite has
been staked not only for a preemption, mill site, half a dozen
mineral claims, railway land,town-
site and by applicants for purchase,
but now has placer poets struok all
over it.
It is believed that the townsite
people have the title to the surfaoe
all right, but if the gravel is as rioh
as it is at present thought to be,
there will not be much surfaoe left.
British Tourlete.
Calgary, Sept. 12.—The distinguished party oi British parliamentarians and capitalists, whioh
is headed by lord Ly venden, passed
through the oity this morning on
their way west to the Paoific ooast.

found guilty of forgery, was today
sentenced by Judge Perdue to three
years' imprisonment,

courts, increases in Judges' salaries,
and consolidation ot municipal
lawB each year.
Liberal Members Protested

were filed today against the election
of three members elect of the legislature, all Liberals. The protested

TORIES AT VANCOUVER
Great  Struggle   for   the
Nomination of Wednesday Next.
Vancouver, Sept. 12.—Notices
for the primaries are just out. The
meetings will be held on Tuesday
evening next. On the night following a convention of the delegates
selected at the primaries will be
held to nominate five candidates.
Up to a short time ago the name
of Broderiok Bueoombe stood well
up on the list. Buncombe's chances
of nomination were good, until
Bowser discovered that there were
too many names on the slate, and
ooncluded ttiat his own should
be there.
There are a dozen other aspirants
for the Tory nomination. Prominent among these outsiders are J. A.
Russell, A. H. B. Maogowan, and
D. Donaldson. 10

AUTHORS       -
AND BOOKS
What the Magazines are
Saying
ARTICLES OFCURRENTCOMMENT
Some Recent Books and Periodicals
—Topics Interesting' General Readers.
Lippincott'e Magazine for September, is an eminently readable
number, and contains a partionlar
good story by E. G. Stevenson,
"The Blade That Won," as its chief
feature.
The Smart Set 1b quite up to its
usual form and has some
oharming verses by Ella Wheeler
Wilcox, a scholarly contribution by
America's leading literary oritic,
Brander Mathews who, if not bo
profound, is certainly more sane
than Goldwin Smith and a pretty
story by the ever welcome John
Strange Winter.
The North American Review is
running a serial by Henry James,
and contains as its leading artiole,
a timely review of the work and
influence of the late Pope XIII.
There is alBO a literary oritique of
Shakespeare's English by Brander
Matbew, whioh will be welcome
to scholars, although on so well
known a subject.
CaBsell's Magazine is a bright
number, containing a serial by its
editor, Max Femberton, and in addition a olever storiette by Clifford
Ashdown, who is making his mark
in the "Adventures of Romney
Pringle."
The Pelineator,. eminently a
woman's magazine, contains its
usual plethora of accurate informa
tion with regard to the fashions of
the day, and has several bright
storiea written, of courBe, from the
point of view of the ladies.
Sports Afield, a Chicago publication, is written altogether, as its
name implies, for the sterner sex,
and appeals solely to men
The current number is quite up to
date and is worthy of many readers amongst those who are devoted
to sport.
Among the later books recently
to hand is to be noted a short story
by P. Marion Crawford, "A Man
Overboard," which is not quite
after this author's usual style, nor
is it pitched in his favorite Italian
background. It gains from the
change and is as weird a story as
any that have ever come from bis
pen.
The "House with the Green
Shutters," by the as yet little
known George Douglas, is a fine
bit of character study by one apparently well endowed by nature
for its delineation, and moreover
the tale lias quite sufficient plot
with it to carry the condemnation
of W. D. Howella who is said to
have been of the opinion that all
the stories were told. In this connection a rather good story is told
of Howells, in relation to a certain
Bohemian club in New York, whose
denizens kept a blank wall for the
effusions of eminent literatteurs
when first introduced within its
hospitable doors. Howells on such
an occasion was desired to contribute something, signing his name to
the same, to be in company with
many another celebrated name.
He, puzzled, did not know what to
write, and finally in desparation
scrawled "I can't think of anything," and signed his name. A
olub wag, noting the quite characteristic inscription, wrote below:
"Quite bo!"
"The Intrusions of Peggy" by
Anthony Hope, needs nothing to
recommend it. All know of Anthony Hope's worth and a book by
him will probably be sought by all
who have not read it, and by many
who have,wishing to renew a pleasure once enjoyed.
"Blaok Rock" by Ralph Connor,
a story pitched amid the rugged
scenery of the Selkirks, descriptive
of the life that is passing around
us in the strenuous west, is sure to
find many readers in the Koote-
nays.albeit Ralph Connor ia strong
er aB a tale teller than as a portray
er of charaoter.
"The Virginians," by Owen Wis
ter, is a remarkably good study of
the west, by one who knows the con
ditions^well; the conflict between a
certain phase of emasculated Chris
tianity, and that type of 'muscular"
Christianity, exemplified by such a
manly oharaoter as Charles Kings
ley, iB well brought out.
OUTSIDE

The Klondyke mines are suffering from want of water.
Tin has been discovered in paying quantities in tbe Transvaal.
The Broken Hill mine, N. S. W .

work in the near future.
Once again the Empire State-
Idaho and the Bunker Hill & Sullivan Mining company have become
involved in litigation. Suit has
been brought by tbe Empire State-
Idaho against the Bunker Hill
company to recover $75,000 for ore
which, it is alleged, was unlawfully
extracted from the plaintiff's

In view of the hostility of the
labor unions to the Los Angeles
Times, says a writer in "Printers' Ink," referring to the latter's
list of the three dozen best dailies
in the United States, the Lob Angeles Herald, with a somewhat
smaller circulation, should be put
in tbe list. Organized labor has
deolared its purpose of warfare
against the Times, with a threat to
include the advertiser who shall
use that paper. As it is not part
of an advertiser's programme to
become involved iu a quarrel in
which he oan have no possible interest and would doubtless be put
to some loss, it would seem better
policy to choose the paper not engaged in strife.

BIO BEND.
A new disoovery has been made
on MoCullough oreek, of a vein of
white quartz from five to twenty
feet wide, running through the
Florence, Minto and 0. K. claims,
and has been traced for over 3000
feet. Five assays have been made
across the lead and average 173
ounces in gold and $15 in silver,
which practioally gives the rook a
total value of $3500 to the ton.
Both the hanging and foot walls
are sohist, whioh, to the width of
2f> feet on each Bide of the quartz,
is also very rich, averaging about
$93 in gold. A tunnel has been
driven for 20 feet on the vein, and
numerous open cuts across it, thus
proving its continuity.

NEW RAILWAY  POLICY
How   Laurier   Will Meet
the Grand Trunk
Claims.
Before the close of the present
session legislation will be introduced whereby a fund will be created
from the sales of Dominion lands
for the purpose of satisfying all the
obligations of the government in
connection with the Grand Trunk
Pacific line. The intention is to
permit settlers who take up homesteads to'purchase an additional
160 sores adjoining their locations
at $3 or $5 per aore, or whatever
the price may be.
The lands in the Northwest are
rapidly rising in value, and the influx of the settlers continues to increase. Before very long the fund
will have reached a handsome figure. Thus, instead of tbe poliey
that prevailed under the old regime, of giving the lands to railway
corporations without benefit to the
country, the lands will hereafter
be disposed of and the proceeds
turned into the public treasury.

TRAIL SMELTER NOT IN   FAULT
But United States Smelters ara Much

THE NEW COMBINE.
The new combine between the C.
"P.  R.  and the War Eagle-Centre
Star,  whioh  has   been so lucidly
expatiated upon by our contemporary, the Miner,this week, despite of
the alleged fact (not real fact) of its
being owned by its editorial writer,
will prove of some interest to Rossland   people.    Briefly  it may  be
said to be an arrangement arrived
at between this oompany and the
Trail smelter, for the erection of a
concentrator, and the possession of
certain   water   rights.     Whether
that paot was arrived at through
the rumored possibility of the departure of the mine manager,  or
whether through the open hearted'
ness of the Trail man, is beside the
mark.   The parties to the  agreement have nothing for publication,
but it is understood that the' dispute for the water rights on lower
Murphy oreek has been settled in
favor of the mine, as long as it returns its water into Stoney creek,
presumably    above    the  smelter
flume.   The smelter also claims to
have the first right on Rook creek,
but has never as yet produced documentary  evidence of the contention, so  that  the water of   Rock
oreek likewise may be used under
similar  conditions.    The smelter
also conoedes   a favorable freight
rate for the ores of the mine.   On
the other hand the mine will erect
its concentrator on the Columbia,
presumably,   again,   near   Stoney
oreek, and will send its product to
the  smelter.   How   the   arrangement will work, remains to be seen
in the future.
The  mine   will  now  probably
. drop its claims to water rights on
the upper portions of the streams.
It must  either do so or   use tbe
water.   This  latter   it cannot do
unless the concentrator were nearer
Rossland.   But   the dispute  with
the oity will  probably assume its
old form once again.   At present
the city is taking water from Rock
oreek, and letting the overflow go
down Stoney oreek and Trail oreek,
via the Centre Star  gulch.    This
does   not  affect  the smelter, but
might affect the concentrator, if it
draws water* from Rock oreek. The
olaim would be set up that the city
has the  right to take the  water
whioh it requires for city purposes,
but not a drop more.   Hence water
taken from Rock creek would have
to be returned, if not used.   Then
the question again arises, what are
"city purposes"?    Do they inolude
industrial   purposes,  or   do they
not?     Forewarned   is   forearmed,
but at the same time it is no use
begging trouble.
That the War Eagle and Centre
Star seem at last really about to
begin work, is a distinct source of
congratulation to the camp. It
is true that the concentrator will
not be in town, yet the ore for that
concentrator must be mined in
town, aud therefore just as soon as
the concentrator gets to work, the
foroe of men on these mines must
People in general, despite the
success of the experiment of a government smelter in New South
Wales, think that any reference to
a government smelter is wholly
wild talk. Why? There have
been two instances of late in this
proviuce, which show at all events,
the evils of the present system.
And when there is an evil, some
remedy for it ought to be sought.
The one instance is that disclosed
by J. C. Drewry, of the St. Eugene.
He deolares that the mine is ready
and willing to ship. But he says
that the Btnelter at Trail now
wisbes to oharge $3 more per ton
than it was ready to accept the ore
at last Maroh, before the bounty
had been secured to the production
of lead. As the World said at the
lime in discussing the question of
bounty, that it ought to be so paid
that the bounty should go to the
mine. If the rate which the Trail
pmelter quoted last spring was one
that would ensure the smelter a
profit, and there is absolutely no
reason to suppose that the smelter
would treat the ore at a loss, then
the extra charge of S3 is simply an
attempt to gain an additional and
an unfair profit. To satisfy these
demands the smelter is closing one
of the best lead mines in cimp.
Now a government smelter would
relieve the situation inasmuch as it
would be worked to pay expenses
of operation, and a fair interest on
the capital outlay. Hence it would
tend, not to supplant private smelters, but to maintain smelting
charges at a fair level.
Manager Cronin of the St. Eugene
has made a complete denial of the
interview published a.few days ago
with Mr. Drewry in the Roasland
Miner. The interview in question
stated that the St. Engene mine
would be running full blast today
if the Trail smelter had been willing to grant the same rate they
offered in March last.
That the smelter was now trying
to hold the mine up for $3 more
per ton than they offered at that
time, and that the St [Eugene company wonld not be held up by any
railroad corporation or smelter.
Mr. Cronin contends that the Trail
smelter is dealing fairly with them,
and that the rate offered last
March was not by the Trail people
but by some of the [United   States   •••••••
smelters.
Mr. Drewry says he was not cor-
reotly quoted and that the interview was a rehash of a conversation which several mining men had
at the Rossland club one night in
the presence of the Miner reporter.
NOTE AND ;COMMENT
Another American invasion is
feared in England, according to
United States press reports. The
clay of Devon and Dorset is to be
all bought up. Unfortunately the
chief clay deposits are in the Midlands not in Southern England.
The Miner is weeping over the
amount of patronage that it cannot obtain, and ends with the tear
ful desire that those business peo
pie who do not patroni/.e it, should
not be patronized by the public
Considering how much the publio
is indebted in the present condition of things to the polioy of the
Gooderham Blaokstock [syndicate,
the owners of the Miner, the public
ought to look askance upon all
those who do patronize it.
All kinds of   summer  drinks  at the
Strand.   Green & Comerford, Props.
Same Old Story
The oft bruited rumor that the
Gooderham Blaokstook syndicate
have purchased the C. P. R. smelter at Trail, is again abroad, and
seems this time to have some coloring through the result ol the late
negotiations between the War Eagle concentrator and the Trail reduction plant. Of course it is well
known that the Gooderhams have
for long had a longiug eye on this
fine plant, and as their representative here is just aa obstinate an the
Trail representative of the C. P. R.
works the only chance of peace ie
the surrendering of the whole authority to one man. Either the C
P. R. had to buy the mine or the
Gooderhams the smelter.
Two prizes will be given at the Alhani-
bra Bowling alley, every two weeks for
the largest score made.

AT THE CITY COUNCIL
Question   of   Liquor   Licences Brought Up by
Hotel Hen.
MARKET
REPORTS
The oity council had a quiet
time on Tuesday whioh was an
innovation on recent practice. The
matters dealt with were the filling
up of the north swamp whioh is
again urged on the Great Northern
Railway oompany; a scheme of
reduoing the interest on the overdraft by making the bank concerned take debentures to that amount,
the interest on debentures being
half that of the overdraft; and a
petition presented by the liquor
sellers whioh was referred to the
oity aolicitor and polioe commissioners.
Tbe purport of this petition is to
have a number of licenoes out down
from the 40 permissable under the
present bylaw to 24, the actual
number now issued. It is urged
by the presenters d the petition,
whioh is baoked by the signatures
of several merchants, that the oamp
cannot support more than the present number and that as the saloons
and hotels petitioning have kept
up their lioenoes and consequently
contributed to the revenue of the
oity while times were dull they
ought to be protected when times
are improving.
In order to deal with this the
present bylaw will have to be altered and the question immediately arises should hotels be included

OUTSIDE POINTS OF VIEW
i;     What the Outside Newspapers are Saying.
TRADES    UNIONS
It has been charged that trades
unions, says an exohange, have
not bettered the conditions of the
workers, yet Btatistios Bhow that
wageB have been doubled in the
past fifty ye»rs, with the hourB of
labor considerally reduced, and the
cost of living only advanced
C per cent. During this period
working conditions in factories and
workshops have been vastly improved, eduoation has been made
cheaper—in some instances free—
and parliaments have been com
pelted to pass legislation protecting
workmen in many ways. All of
whioh, and more besides, has been
accomplished by trades unions.
Therefore the statement that the
workers are no better off by reason
of trades unions is not in accordance ^vith faots. It is not claimed that trade unionism is a cure-
all for the thousand and one sooial
evils, but it isol&imed and has been
proven, that trades unions lighten
and brighten tbe homes of those
who toil for a livelihood,
now it's done.
As far as Wall Street is removed
from lawn tennis, says the New
York Times, as far as the Times,
of London, is removed from Mr.
H. L. Doherty, so far are two recent criticisms of American traitB
removed from each other; yet in
effect the two are identical. Apropos of recent failures, in Wall Street,
the Times, while admitting the
wonders sometimes achieved here
in finance, comments: "It is one
of the weak points of the Amerioan
mind that people have never learn
ed that the rules of safe conduct
in business cannot be disregarded
with impunity." Apropos of the
American tennis players he has
met (and vanquished) Mr, Doherty, while admitting that they
reach heights of brilliancy beyond
his countrymen, aays that they
do not pay attention to the rudimentary principles of the game."
There is more than a coincidence
here. Frequently as we startle
the world and dazzle ourselves with
our achievements, the solid Briton
has a way of pegging along so as to
keep up pretty well with the procession.
I'lUVATU OWNERSHIP.
The Dominion Coal company,
says the Toronto Telegam, has encountered misfortunes which would
have been charged op to the principle of public ownership if the en
terprise had been a municipal
work or service. Private ownership handled the Dominion Coal
properties so that the capital was
.$18,000,000, tbe stock was selling
at $1.40 1-2, the net earnings were
$1,555,000' or 8 5 per cent on the
par value of the stock which had a
selling value of $25,000,000. Pri
vale ownership is still in control
of the Dominion Coal property
which has a capital of $18,000,000,
with the stock selling at 80, with
net earnings which must pay S per
cent on the par value of stock
which has a selliug value of $15,-
000,000, and shows a shrinkage of
$10,005,000 in the selling price of
the Block within tbe last two years.
No journal advocates the public
ownership of coal mines. There
is nothing in,the principle of private ownership which ensures
efficiency. There is nothing in the
principle   of    public,  ownership
which entails inefficiency. Every
mistake that is made in experiments with the principle of publio
ownership is used to discredit the
principle. If public ownership is to
discredited by the occasional Iosb
of taxpayers who own a municipal
enterprise, why should not private
ownership be discredited by the
losses of investors who own industrial stocks.
LEAD FURNACE SLAGS
Their Composition Must Be
Accurately Known at
All Times.
The greater part of ores are
smelted in order to separate the
valuable metals from the valueless
earthy gangue. The oreB which
are not smelted are treated by
some chemical process, such as the
cyanide and the chlorination processes for the silver ores and several others.
The various processes of concentration in concentrating mills,
where the Wifley, Calmett or Bart-
ett tables, Prue vanners or similar
devices are used, are simply a preliminary operation whioh renders
the ore more valuable and able to
stand the cost of smelting. But all,
or nearly all, of the ores concentrated in mills have afterwards to be
smelted either in a lead or in a
oopper furnace. In Colorado the
ores of most of the districts, such
as Leadville, Aspen and the Ban
Juan, for instance, are lead ores
and smelted in a lead furnace.
In smelting the various constituents of the rocks containing the
values have to be eliminated as
slag, and for that purpose have to
be combined in fixed and well
known proportions. There are
three main types of slags, according to the proportions of the compounds, called eingulo silicates, bi-
silicates, and Beequi-silicates, according to the various proportions
of oxygen and silicum combined
in. the slag. Good slags ought to
contain no more than three-quarters
of one per cent of lead, or half an
ounce of silver to the ton.
Numerous assays are made all
the time, and smeltermen know
exactly and continually the compo
sition of their Blags. The fusibility
of a elag depends on the percent
age of silica and on the character
at the base. Well composed Blags
have a decided tendency to crystal
lize.
An iron flux actB in three different ways: It gives* base for the
silica in the ore, next liberates lead
oxide from its combination with
silioa, after which it is reduced by
means of the carbon, and, lastly,
whnn reduced to metallic compounds
by means of carbon, it acts as a
precipitating agent.
Alumina has generally a subordinate place in the lead slag.
When it is present in large quanta
ties it is a question if it acts as an
aoid or as a base. It is known in
a general way that with a high
percentage of silica alumina acts as
a I)»eo, and with a low percentage
it acts like an acid.

MILKAMEEN CITY, I C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of camp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of thiB distriot. The Nickel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramwayB and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter ac Similkameen City which will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in.North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princet n and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townBite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Pacific Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining oentres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for iu Similkameen,   Come in before tbe boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Paoifio railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make thiB town a railroad oentre and divisional poiut, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will become tbe main through lines, being the shortest route from tho interior to tbe coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite. which is located in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.

SYNOPSIS.
Phra, who dies and lives again, in
Britain, begins to recount his early adventures—He speaks of the pirates.
.   CHAPTER I (continued)
Yet even these cruel rovers did
me a good turn. We were short of
water, and had run down along a
lonely coast to a green spring we
knew of to fill water butts and
skins. When we let go in the
little inlet where the wsll was to be
found, another vessel, and, moreover a pirate, lay anchored before
us. However, we were consciously virtuous, and, what was of more
consideration, a larger vessel and
crew than the other, so we went
ashore and made acquaintance
round the fresh water with as
villainous a gang of sea robbers -as
ever caused the blood of an honest
trader to run cold in his veins.
The very air of their neighborhood
smelled so of treachery and cruelty
we soon had but one thought—to
load up and be gone.
But this was a somewhat longer
process than we wished, as our
friends had baled the little spring
dry, and we had to wait its refilling. While we did so, I strolled
over to a group of miserable slaves
turned out for an airing, and cowering on the black a :d shudelees
rocks. There were in that abjeot
group captiveB from every oountry
that fared upon those seas, and
some ethers besides. The dusky
peasant of Boeotia, that fronts the
narrow straits, wrung her hands
by the fair cheeked girl snapped up
from the wide Gulf of Narbo; the
dark Numidian pearl fisher cursed
his patron god; and the tall Achaian
from the many islands of Pelopon-
nesian waters grit his teeth as he
cowered beneath his rags and bemoaned the fate that threw him
into the talons of the sea hawks.
I looked upon them with small
interest, for new taken slaves were
no great Bight to me, until I chanced, a little way from the others,
upon such a oaptive as I had rarely or never seen. She struck me
at once as being the fiercest and
moBttbeautiful creature that mortal
eyes ever lit upon. Never was
Umbrian or Iberian girl like that,
never was Cyprian Aphrodite
served by a maid so pink and
white. Her hair was fiery red
gold, gleaming in the sunshine like
the locks of the young goddess
MeduBa. Her face was of ruddy
ivory, and her native comeliness
gleamed through the unwashed
dust and tears of many long days
and nights. Her eyes were as blue
under her shaggy wild hair as the
sky overhead, and her body—grimy
under its sorrow stainE—was still
as fair as that of some dainty princess.
Knowing the pirate captain
would seek a long price for his
property, I determined to use a little persuasion with him. I went
back to my men, and sent one of
them,- proficient in the art of bowstring, to look at the slaves. Then I
drew tbe unsuspecting scoundrel up
there for a bargain, and, well of out
sight of bis gang, we faced the red-
haired girl and discussed her price.
The rascal's first figure was three
hundred of your modern pounds, a
sum whioh would then have fetched
the younger daughter of a sultan,
full of virtue and accomplishments.
As this girl very likely had neither
one nor the other, I did not see
why it was necessary to pay so
much, and stroking my beard
in an angered signal, with my
hand, as my man was passing behind the old pirate he slipped a
length of twisted cloth over his
wioked neck and tightened it with
a jerk that nearly started the eyes
from his head, and brought him
quickly to his knees.
'Now, delicately minded one,' I
said, 'I don't want to fight you and
your crew for this maid here, on
whom I have set my heart, but
you know we are numerous and
well armed, so let us have a peace-
ul and honest bargain. Give me
a fairer price;' and obedient to my
signal the band was loosened.
Not a sesteroe will I takeoff,'
spluttered the wretoh, 'not a drachma, not an ounce.'
'Cornel cornel think again,' I
said persuasively, 'and the oloth
shall help you.' Thereon another
turn was taken, and my henchman
turned his knuckles into the nape
of the swarthy villain's neck, until
the veins on his forehead stood out
like cordage and the blood ran
from his nose and eyes.
In a minute the rover threw up
his hands and signed he had
enough, and when he got his breath
we found he bad knocked off a
hundred pounds. We gave him
the cord again and brought him
down, twist by twist, to fifty. By
this time he was almost'at his last
gasp, and I waB contented, paying
the coins out on a rock and leaving
them there with the rogue well
bound. ■ I was always honest,
though, as became the times, a
trifle hard at bargains.
Then I cut the red maid loose
and took her by the elbow and led
her down to the beach, where we
were secretly picked up by my fellows, and shortly afterwards we set
sail again for the open main.
ThuB was acquired the figure
head of my subsequent adventureB
—the Siren who lured me to that
coast where I have lived a thousand
years and more.
It was the inscrutable will of
Destiny that those nhining ooins I
paid down on the bare hot African
rock should cost me all my wealth
my cash and credit at many ports,
and that that fair slave, who I
deemed would serve but to lighten
a voyage or two, should mock my
forethought, and lead my fate into
the strangest paths that ever were
trodden by mortal foot.
Iu truth, that sunny virago bewitched me. She combined suoh
ferocity with her grace, and was so
pathetic in her reckless grief at
times, that I, the immovable, was
moved, and softened the rigor of
her mischance as time went on so
muoh as might be. At onoe, on
this, like some caged wild creature,
which forgives to one master alone
the sorrows of captivity, she softened to me; and before many days
were over she had bathed and discarded her rags for a length or two
of cloth, had tied up her hair with
a strand of ribbon she found, and,
looking down at her reflection in a
vessel of water (her only mirror,
for we carried women but seldom),
she smiled for the first time.
After this progress was rapid,
a nd, though at first we oould only
with difficulty make ourselves un
derstood, yet she soon picked up
something of the Southern tongne
from me, while I very fairly
acquired the British language of
this   oomely  tutoress.   Of her I
learnt she was of that latter ooun- 	
try, where her father was a chief;) bet baok,  and  a   bystander had
glistened in unoared-for brightness
upon her shoulders like a tissue of
golden threads. Her mother was
loth to part with her, and fought
like a tiger when we separated them
It was only after the dealer's lash
had out  a dozen red furrows into
how their ooast village had been
surprised by a Southern rover'a
foray; she knew not how many of
the people slain or made oaptive,
and herself oarried off. Afterwards
she had fallen into the hands of
other pirates by an aot of sea barter, and they were taking her to
Alexandria, hoping, as I guessed,
in that luxurious oity to obtain a
higher prioe than in the ordinary
markets of Gaul or Italy.
What I heard of Britain from
these warm lips greatly fired my
curiosity, and, after touohing at
several ports and finding trade dull,
ohanoe clenched my resolution.
We had sailed northward with a
oargo of dates, and on the sixth
day ran in under the high promontory of MasBilia, whioh yon moderns oall Marseilles. Here I rid
myself of my fruit at a very good
profit, and after talking to a brother
merchant I met by ohanoe upon
the quay, fully determined to load
up with oil, wine, stuffs, and suoh
other things as he recommended
and aail at onoe for Britain.
Little did I think how momentous this hasty decision would be I
It was brought about partly as I
have explained, and partly by the
interest whioh just then that oountry was attracting. All the weapons and things of Britain were
then in good demand: no tin and
gold, the smiths roundly swore,
were like the British; no furs in
winter, the Roman ladies vowed,
were so warm as those; while no
patrician from Tarentum to tbe
Tiber held his house well furnished
unless a red haired slave girl or
two from that remote plaoe idled
sad and listlessly in his painted
porticoes.
In these slaves there was a brisk
and increasing traffic. I went
into the market that ran just
along inside the harbor one day,
and saw there an ample supply of
Buch curious goods suitable for
every need.
All down the middle of a wide
street rongh booths of sail oloth
had been run up, and about and
before these crouched slaves of
every age and condition. There
were old men and young men—
fierce and wild looking barbarians,
in all truth—some with raw, red
scars on chest and limbs they had
taken a few weeks before in a last
stand for liberty, and some groaning in the sickness that attended
the slaver's lash and their condition.
There were lank-haired girls
submitting with sullen hate to the
appraising figures of purchasers
laughing and chatting in Latin or
Gaulish, as they dealt with them no
more gently than a buyer deals
with sheep when mutton is cheap.
Mothers, again—sick and travel-
stained themselves—were soothing
the unkempt little ones who cower-
ed behind them and shrunk from
every Roman footstep as the quails
shrink from a kestrel's shadow.
Some of these children were very
flowers of comelinesB, though trodden into the mire of misfortune.
I bought a little girl to attend upon my ship who, thongh she wore
at the time but one sorry oloth,
and was streaked with dirt and
dust, had eyes clear ad the southern sky overhead,  and   hair that
beat her on the head with the flat
of his sword, that she gave in and
swooned, and I led the weeping
little one away.
So we loaded up again with
Eastern things, suoh as the barbarians might be supposed to like,
and in a few weeks started onoe
more. We sailed down the green
ooast of Hispania, through the narrow waters of Herculis Fretum,and
then leaving the undulating hills
of that pleasant strait behind, turned northward through the long
waves ot the blaok outer sea.
For many days we rolled up a
sullen and dangerous ooast bnt
one morning our pilot called me
from my breakfast of fruit and
millet oakes, and, pointing over the
green expanse, told me yonder
white surf on the right was breaking on the steep rooks of Armories,
while the misty British shore lay
ahead.

Newfoundland Sealskins
The success of tanning experiments has made a great demand
for Newfoundland sealskins. Orders
are in for about 500,000, while the
total number 'available will be
materially less. Although these
seals have beeu taken indiscriminately for 300 years, there ie no sign
of depletion. The annual catch for
the past ten years averaged 2G0,-

One of the great experiments lying before this camp, to which little publio   attention has  hitherto
been   paid,   despite of  occasional
newspaper   comment,   is that   of
direot or pyritio smelting.   This is
a method of smelting whioh mixes
the ores in suoh manner as they are
self fluxing and consequently but
little coke has to be used and  no
dead flux,   For in a furnace of 150
tons capacity il 25 per oent coke is
used and 15 to 20  per   dead  lime
flux in addition, the  capacity  of
that furnace is reduced  one third
while the  costly  of handling  is
equally   great: while   large   sums
have to be paid for  coke and for
lime, the former being especially
expensive. Tbe trouble, is of course,
in the getting of the proper ores together.   Where this is attempted
from widely separated points there
is a ohanoe for the railway  to get
in its deadly work and "charge all
the traffic will bear."   Then again
there is trouble in the   marketing
of the ores to the refineries and the
transportation   of kthe matte   in
which the railway have yet another
opportunity.   Then again there iB
the nuisance of the necessary water
under the present conditions where
a dog in the manger can get in and
hold-up a whole camp.
But pyritic smelting in itself is a
success and one that is famous in
Mexico, notably in the Sierra
Madres. There it is claimed, and
the claim is well authenticated,
that direct smelting has been done
as cheap as 90 cents to the ton and
a usual figure is $1.50. And, oc-
oording to the London Mining
Journal, the ore treated does not
run more than $9 or $10 to the ton.
And the mines here spoken of are
laboring under several heavy drawbacks. In the first place they
are 50 miles from any railroad
whioh when reached is 400 miles to
the nearest refinery where the
Guggenheims apparently have the
full control and are tho only buyers in the market. Moreover the
railway iB by itself and the charges
would make ShaugbneBBy's hair
rise on end. The coke used is 8
to 10 per cent instead of about four
and that coke has to be transported
for half a hundred miles by pack
train. Such being the conditions
in Mexico where pyritic smelting is
carried on most advantageously it
would seem as if there would be an
opportunity right in the Kootenays.
It iB true that the chemical analysis of the ores is not the same and
there would be some greater difficulty in tbe metallurgical work,but
Kootenay could give Mexico points
on smelting. There is the question
of the water supply which could be
arranged if an all wise government
could only see that it would be to
tbe advantage of a oamp to have
the first right to all water inasmuch
as it would be to its advantage to
let that water equitably in its own
interest. And to protect munioi
palitieB from hot headed mayors
and stupid aldermen it were well
to make  that first right inalien
able. If the government would
build a refinery as proposed much
transportation would be saved and
much of ' the inordinate charges.
Similar effects would follow from
the erection of a government railroad. The greed of the monopoly
holders iB driving many people into
the socialistic theory of the government exploitation of all natural
monopolies. They may be mismanaged and they will be mismanaged just as long as tha accursed doctrine of "to the victors belong the spoils" prevails but suoh
mismanagement will not be a circumstance on the present holdup
grafts that are cutting the throats of
this camp, and of many others.

The Baseball Club will end this
year out of debt, thanks to the
management of that optimist, Al.
Davis. Al. has been hard up
against it of late but is not a whit
discouraged. Tbe boys are going
down to Colville towards the end
of the month and are practicing
strenuously in the meantime so as
to give the WashingtonianB a surprise. The material is here but
praotiee is sadly laoking.
There is a game in sight for Sunday, September 27, but there will
