ore bodies exposed in that property a
detailed sketch of the mine will we
believe be ol more tban passing interest
to them,
The property is situated on the west
side of Hewett monntain and extend*
(rom the summit down to tbe Galena
Farm Flats. It is distant about four
miles from Silverton, a wagon road from
town running to the foot of the hill ami
a trail covering the steep ascent to the
The company operating it, a close
corporation, took over the property about
two years ago while it was but a mere
prospect and has already accomplished
some 3000 feet of underground development work upon it, besides building :i
wagon road, bunk-house and accommodations for 'Ah men and ore bins and
other necessary buildings.
The situation of tbe mine is such that
it can be operated to a gieat depth by a
system of tunnels, all of which can lie
driven directly upon the vein and of this
fact the compauy is taking ample aib/un-
t«ge. They have already completed
three tunnels into tbe big ore bodies,
cutting them below the apex of the ore
shute ut depths of 240, 860 and 450 feet
and when the No6, tunnel is completed
the big ore shute will be tappeJ at a
depth of 000 feet, while a tunnel if driven
irom the bottom of the hill would tap it
at least 1000 foot deeper. Thus it ia
seeu that tne mine cun be operated for
yeais without any pumping, hoisting or
other expensive machinery, thus greatly
lessening the cost of operating this mine.
The ideal situation cannot be better explained than in the words of one of the
miners, who said: "If I were making
a mine, I could'nt improve on the
Hewett, except move it a little nearer to
a saloon."
At tho month ol No 3. tunnel is situated the company's blacksmith shop
and ore-house. Iu tbo latter building
what little sorting the ore requires is
accomplished and at the present time
thia ia piled high with sacked ore, a
large pile of which is also stacked up
outside and is being added to at the rate
ol over ten tons per day. Thia ore is
awaiting transportation to the smelter
whicli the present bad state of the roads
greatly delays. The ore-Dins are kept
full nt ore which is sacked sewed and
piled up as fait as three men can handle
it. It is here that a good opportunity is
had of examining the ore as il comes
out of the different workings in the
mine. The ore is what is known aa dry
or siliceous und as a rule carries but a
small percentage of lead or zinc, but,
carries values in silver ranging from 50
to 1000 ounces to tbe ton tbe average
being aliout one hundred ounces. Pieces
can be picked up almost anywhere Irom
tbe pile showing streaks and blotches of
grey-copper and  ruby-silver.
The ledge is a true fissure vein cutting
diagonally across the formation, whieh
consists of a eeries of slate, porphory and
g.anite dykes. The strike of the vein is
east and west whb a dip to tho north.
The No 1. tunnel ia in some 200 feet
! an'd some ore has been taken out and
Hliipped from this point, but, as Ibe ore
is neither as regular nor of as high grade
as in the lower tunnels, work (or tl.e
l'i.-. ent has been suspeuded in that
portion of the mine.
No 2. tunnel is in a depth of 520 feet
and an oprniBe has been put up for some
distance and two slopes started. The
ore ahute is here tapped at a depth of 350
leet and a large amount of ore has been
taken out and shipped. In the stopes
above thia tunnel the vein shows to be
well defined and regular having about a
20 degree pitch to .the north. The ore
here stoned is from three to six feet wide
and of a good shipping grade. This
stoping has beeu confined to the rich
streak lying next to the footwall and as
shown by a level and stope driven about
50 (eet below it from the upraise between
the No 2. and 3. tunnels, there is a body
of ore yet to be taken out here ove r
eight feet wide 1, ing near the banging
ttinnei not only is the ore of higher grade
but tbe ore bodies tapped are of such
magnitude that the visitor can hardly
believe his own eyes. At a distance in
from the mouth of this tunnel of 545 feet
a drift bas been run north ,4hto what was
supposed to be the hanging wall, which
is now in 85 feet and has encountered
ore Ibe whole distauce.' A cross-cut
run at tbo face of this drilt back towards
tbe main tunnel shows for 30 (eet a mass
of high grade shipping ore over 12 feet
wide and practically no sorting is required for this ore as it is s mply broken
down and sacked in tbe mine ready for
shipment. Back in tbis drift a raise
bus been put up aud stoping is being
curried ou. In this stopo from two to
four leet of clean ore is exposed and
some of the richest ore ever encountered
iu the mine is being tuken out here.
An upraise has been put through from
No 3. to No 2, a distance of 100 feet at a
point in No 3. tunnel 565 feet in from its
mouth. About hall way up tbis raise a
level and stope is being driven and it is
in this slope that tho visitor is able to
form some idea of tbe size of the vein
and width of the ore body. Here the
payorc is over 10 feet wide and the vein
at least 20 feet in width. Owing to the
difficulty pf getting timbers up to the
mine at this time of the year this stope
at present is being carried up from eight
to twelve feet wide, leaving from four to
six feet of rich ore, next to the footwall,
to he extracted later on. This stope is
all picking ground and the ore is taken
down on canvas and sacked in the stope
ready (or the smelter. Two miners, one
on a shift, in this stope mine and sack
from 50 to 100 sacks per duy. No blasting is necessary and the principal work
consists of sacking ore and putting in
What is known aa No 6. tnnnel baa
been .-lulled on the vein at a point sti'j
farther down the hill and will when
completed to it point below tbe present
workings he 1100 leet in length and tap
the ore bodies at a depth ol 090 feet.
lt is tbe intention ot this company, as
announced in these columns last week,
to at once enlarge tlie accommodations
at tho mine for their employees to ut
least double its present capacity and also
to erect a tramway from the mine to the
foot of the lull. With these improvements the company expects to be able
before the snow tomes again to be able
lo send out at least one carload ol ore
per day. So iar 11ns \ cur there hns been
shipped 520 tons of ore and it ia only
lack of letter trniisporlalfon facilities at
present that prevents them from being
able to send out fronr 500 to 6J0 tons per
month to the sunelltr.
Tbe Hewett mine is neither a show-
mini' nor a stock proposition, bnt a
bonanza thst lortuuately baa fallen into
the hands of business men who are
working it as a business proposition
enriching themselves and benefiting the
country at tbe same time. The foreman
P. Diryer is a practical mining man of
many years experience and the local
management is in the bands of Cross k
Co., who are also part owners.

The several choruses showed a good

an enjoyable reading, us did Mrs R. Calbick, who favors a Silverton audience too

by Mrs   Beneduui   highly   amused   her
hearers.    Mr. Worden, of Slocan, was
pleasing in bis solo und witty encore, and
Mra Mat heson also received a hearty encore for her singing.   The younger ladies
sang a rattling chorus which appeared to
upset them at times.   Miss Brandon and
Miss Hunter pleased aa   usual   In   their

was perhaps the most enjoyable number
nf the evening,  although the children's

The citizens of Silverton met in masa
meeting last Tuesday evening to consider
the question of joining in with the various Boards of Trades of tbis district in
sending a delegation to Ottawa to urge
upon the Dominion Government the necessity of aiding the lead industry of the
Province. Wm. Hunter was called to
tlie chair and J. G. Gordon was elected
secretary. A thorough discussion of the
subject followed and Mr. Hunter was
urged upon to represent Silverton among
tha delegates. Business reasons, however prevented him from accepting the
position, and it was decided that a resolution should be drswn up and copies sent
to 8. 8. Fowler, who will go from Nelson, and G. O. Buchanan, a representative from Kaslo, to show Silverton's sc-
cordance with the movement. It was
decided.that the matter could safely be
left in the bands of such men as  these.
The following resolution waa passed.
"At a meeting of the people of Silverton,
B, C. interested in mining, held on the
21st day of March 10(1', it was unanimously resolved aa follows :—
"Whereas silver-lead mining in British
Columbia has grown into a most important industry, giving employment to a
large number of man at remunerative
wages, supporting tli_e population of an
extensive area in the Kootenay districts
and adding greatly to the general prosperity ;
"And whereas the increase and development of this industry would be certain
under favorable conditions, one ol the
most important of which—a vital condition indeed—is that every mine owner
would at all times be able to have his
ores smelted and refined at a reasonable
charge for freight and treatment;
"And whereas the demand for these
silver-lead ores by smelters iu the United
States has almost ceased while the capacity of tiie smelters now operating in
British Columbia is totally inadequate
to treat the output of these mines, many
of which hare already lessened their output, while others  have  closed down in
consequence thereof;
"And whereas no means of refining base
bullion exists to-day in Canada, thereby
neossitating the shipment to United
States refineries of tho silver-lead products of Canadian Smelters, and a much
higher rate for tlie refining of tbis product is now being demanded by the
American Smelting & Refining Trust
than that previously charged therefor,
high aa that had been regarded by mine
owners here;
"Aud whereas no tendency is observable to increase the smelting capacity in
the Kootenays while the demand for the
payment of excessive charges for refln-
ing continues;
"And whereas the establishment of a
silver-lead refinery readily accessible to
tbe smelters in the silver-lead producing
districts of British Columbia would undoubtedly result in the speedy erection
of additional furnaces and would thus afford the silver-lead mining induatry the
relief whicli it now so urgently requires;
"And whereas the successful opeartion
of such a refinery would necessitate the
employment of a large amount of capital,
not only in the erection and the equipt-
ment thereof, but also in the purchase ol
bullion and its transportation to the
world's maikets;
"Therefore be it resolved that in our
opinion the establishment of a silver-
lead refinery in an accessible and central
position ia the surest snd best means of
fostering and ei.uouraging thc silver-lead
mining induatry of British Columbia—is
indeed an immediate necessity to its further and continued existence, now so
heavily hampered and greatly depressed
by thn said condition of affairs; nnd this
meeting respectfully urges upon the
Dominion Government tbat, to aid this
new induslty until it would be fully established and able to dispense therewith,
I a bounty be granted for a tei m of years
of five dollars tier ton on pig lead, the
product ot ores mined, smelted and refined In Canada.
"This meeting would also point out thut

To the larger mines in Republic the
mill rate war is at an end. D. C.
Jackling has stated that "more satisfactory terms can be given shippers
than were at first submitted, if the
mines will guarantee such quantities
as will justuy the milling company in
reducing the rates." President Ayer
of the company confirmed this statement wulle in Spokane and as a re-
su.i. at least two of the Republic mines
will send their ore, the Lone Fine to
take advantage of the rate and the
Ben Hur to test their ore.
This statement by the prominent officials of the Republic Milling company is *t"> first oincial assurance that
a settlement could be reached without
the mineowners giving in to the rates
of the mill.
The Immediate output of the camp
is about as follows:
Maurice Downey, superintendent of

perday of a value of not less than
$16.50 per ton.
' W. M. Crummer, superintendent of
the Quilp, Black Tail and San Poll-
There would he no difficulty in taking
out 200 tons of shipping ore from the
Quilp every 24 hours, an ....s could
be kept up for an Indefinite period.
There would be no difficulty In taking out 40 tons da..y out of the Black
Tail, and keep it up.
Matt Hodge, superintendent of the
Princess Maud, says: I should experience no difficulty in producing
from it 50 tons dally.
Philip Creasor, a large owner of the
Lone Pinc-Snrprise—We can take out
100 tons a day now and within three
months we could put on machinery
and Increase the output 200 tons
George Miller, superintendent of the
Ben Hur—We can easily produce 25
tons daily from the mine, and will do
so when there Is a marnet for the
John W. McCann. manager of the
North San Poil—We are in shape to
place 20 tons of high grade ore on
the dump each lK hours.
E. J. Eldridge oi the California—
We are not prepared to take out more
than 10 tons per day at this time, but
within 90 days the amount can be and
will be Increased to 30 tons per day.
Mr. Hewitt of the Chico—We are
prepared to take out 30 tons of ore
dally from the mine whenever lt could
be treated with a profit.
Manager Wyatt of the Mountain
Lion was not Interviewed, but he
stated the day previous that he could
take out fully 200 tons dally from that
mine, and continue to do so for a year

Must lie Settled by April 1—Strike
Seems Inevitable— 1'reii.deiil Mitchell Talks—Mine Operators Refused
to Confer Will. Union Men.
HAZELTON, Pu., March 18.—By iiniini-
nioiis vote the delegates to the United
__w.no Workers' convention, which has been
in session in this eity for nearly a week,
decided to suspend work ut all anti.raeite
mines unless Ilie operators agree to meet
the miner** executive board in conference
before April 1. A strike seems Inevitable.
The operators have steadfastly refused to
reoognize the minera as a body and there
is not the remotest indication thut they
will pay any attention to the demands
made by President Mitchell and other
members of the executive board that they
meet the miners in joint conference to ud-
just grievance^
The convention adjourned after adoption
of tlie resolution, and resident Mitchell and
the officers of the three anthracite districts
held a session nt which plans were discussed on bringing about the desired meeting
between operators and miners.
In an interview President Mitchell admitted the probability of a strike, but said
he would prefer to make no definite statement in that respect pending negotiations.
He laid, however, that the delegations weie
a unit in their approval of the action
Referring again to the possibility of a
strike, lie said: "Words can not express
how wc regret being forced to consider
such a step. The miners' union stands for
peace, but peace upon a Ilrm foundation."
T. I>. Nieliolls, president of District No.
1, said tonight: "Conditions which nre
unfair still exist and a joint conference w ill
be necessary to adjust them, The operators should not be afraid to meet the men
in joint conference if their contentions on
scale matters ure just."
The most important demand which the
millers would make, it is said, is recognition of their union, which was not insisted upon during the strike last year/and
u uniform wage scale. In order to bring
about the latter condition a slight advance,
it is said, will lie asked for by the men in
the Lehigh, Schuylkill and Wyoming regions. Considerable hiltcrncss has been engendered among the delegates by the refusal of the mme owners to confer with
Fonr I'rrlshed.
Missoula, Mont., March 18.^-At Olive, a
station 45 miles west of here, a speeial car

Whilo the smelters at Nelson and at
Trail are glutted with lead ores, the
products of the few mines still working in the Slooan, and wh^le there is no
certainty that any new lead stacks
will be built in the near future, any
talk of an export duty on lead orea is
sheer nonsence. An export duty
would raise the price on smelting exactly as a protective import duty does
raise the price of manufactures at the
home factory, as then there would be
no competition in the least for the ore.
The Trade Budget takes exoeption to
this view, but it is the raw truth and
the fact is recognized here that an export duty, if put on now, would kill
this district
The Trade Budget compares the lea^
mining industry of the Slocsn to the
lumber industry of Ontario and contends that smelters would spring up
here as saw-mill sprang up in the
woods, But the Trade Budget forgets
that it is rather hard to compare a sawmill with a smelter. While the latter
wen being built the district would be
deserted, and tbe Slocan could not lie
dormant for a year without ruining
hundreds. In addition to smelters,
there niuat bo a refinery and white
lead works to take up the products of
the K'ri'ltirs. When these are built
so that tbe change of systems will not
jolt the breath of life out of us, theie
will be time to talk of an export duty
on lead ores and an import duty on
lead products.
One writer, who favors the Chinese
policy of shutting out foreign competing railroads, declares that Rossi Mid
and Nelson, the two towns having foreign connection, are filled with Americans living in and off tbe country. He
deplores this as being an injury to
Canada and a gain to the United
States. In the same way, we suppose,
he would look upon the fact of hundreds .. ' 'sands of Canadians lieing
in and making their living in the United States as being favorable to Can-
ana. A great deal of nonsence is
being written about the Crows Nest
southern connection, and the writir
referred to is not one of the least nonsensical.
If, as is confidently expected, the
deputation from the Kootenays, who
go to Ottawa asking for a bounty on
refined lead, succeed in their effort, the
lecal Government will be overlooking a
big bet if they do not get in and build
the refinery themselves and collect the
bounty. This would not only give
practical encouragement to the mining
industry but would be a money making
proposition direotly and indirectly.
Mr. Green is working along this line,
but so far he lias only elicited a statement from the Government that they
are urging the Dominion Government
to grant relief to the industry,
