If reports from Pittsburg are correct
Ilie smelting and refininu problem in
likely to be solved by a discovery said to
have been lately made. Successful experiments bave been made w iib the new
process, which amelts and refines at the
i aame tune.   The Pitt sbuig Post has the
j following to say in regard to It.
"A lar^e number Of, melting and ore re-
.filing companies throughout the country
bave been interested in the discovery
made by a physician and chemist which
promises to revolutionize the present
methods of reducing all high grade
metallic ores, and reducing the co<t am
well as time required for this work down
to a matter of minutes. The process
has been quietly tested iu several Pills
bum plants during the past lew months,
aud in each case has proved fully up to
all the claims made for it. In the
interim a number of Pittshurgers whute
names are for the present wiih-hcld
have been preparing to organise and
secure a chatter lor the coutrul uf the
new process.
"The chemical discovery that has been
finally mnde public was developed bj
some yeais of Eludy by a Dr. Miller, a
man advanced in years, whose home ia
iu Ihe vicinity of Mt. Pleasant. His
experiments with his composition, which
is called a "flux," developed the fact
that by mixing it with asbestos aud
pli-.i'iim it in a ciucilile wiih raw ores,
the heat produced is so intense that ihe
asbestos becoiiu-s liquified. The action
of the flux and ust'eatos upon the ore is
almost instantaneous. Iu loity minutes
thu removal ol the dross from the top of
tbe OTUicible shows the pure copper',
lead, silver or «..-ld beneath.
"^Practical tcbls havo been conducted
with a koimI ileal of secrecy at the mills
of the Fox Copper and Bronze Company,
and in tbe mill of Macintosh, Hemphill
A Co. The results of these testf have
shown that the reduction of tho oies
placed in lhe crucibles has been almost
complete* In its action the flux rcmo\es
over OS per cent of the metals from the
crude ores, without any prior crushiug
Tins lias never been possible helore in
lhe history of mining. The specimens
uf copper and other metals that have
been taken irom the chemical baths are
declared to be absolutely pure and iu
need of uo further treatment, while the
actual operation of reducing them has
averaged about forty minim;; to tbe
"Another feature of tho experiments
that has developed is the peculiarly
free action ol the metals where the ores
that are used are of a compound character—containing two or more metals.
In such cases the new process has
caused the various forms of metal lo
sink to the bottom ot the crucible, the
heaviest flndiug a place at the bottom
and the next heaviest resting above it.
Three and four different metals have
thus been found in layers after the dross
has beeu removed from ihe molten mass
and the crucible allowed to cool.   The
cost of lhe material for iis manufacture
Can lie gained, ehemis.s will not commit
themselves regarding the practicability
of the process for commercial purposes.
The inventor claims that the formula is
a very cheap one and the cost will unl
Interfere wilh the commercial value in
the least.
••From several chemists connected with
the copper minea in the Northwest,
letters havo been received concerning
the new pn cess and all urge most
vigorous study of the matter, believing
It will prove one of tbe greatest factors

und in   no   way   does  tho one interfere
with the purity of the other. Those who
have  control of   the   experiments   that
have  lieen   made  decline lo discuss the
details  of  the   process for the present,

"One of the  chemists   connected with
the Carnegie Steel Company stated that
if    the    flux    will   liquify  asbestos   it
certainly      has     remarkable    powers,
Asbestos was known   to thu Greeks  us
the "burning stone," but this term had
always lieen regarded by modern sclent e
as mythological.   The theory that asbes-
to8 was practically   impruvious  to heat
of  any  degree   has  never  once' been
doubted until  this discovery was made.
It is now  believed that the Greek term
was due to the fact that   they believed
that if  asbestos   was  once ignited successfully it would never cease burning.
"The other peculiar feature of this flux
is the claim   of   its   discoverer that it is
practically    in destructible,   It   is   Baid j
that it can be used over and ovei  again
in the crucibles, as it passes ofT witli the

ore Is silver-lead and an assay of an average sample across 10 feet of the ledge
went: Gold, 80 cents; silver, 46.80
ounces; and lead, $24.50, a total of $72.-
10 per ton. The property lies about 14
miles of the mouth of the west fork of
the San Poil river and about the same
distance southwest of Republic.

Rumors were afloat and some of
them seemed-from authentic sources,
that the Canadian Pacific railway had
leased to C. R. Hosmer, George Gooderham and T. G. Blackstock, the three
principal owners of the War Eagle,
Centre Star and St. Eugene mines, the
Trail smelter.
Another mining deal of importance

In view of the rumors circulating In
the east of late to the effect that the
War Eagle mine might close down, and
that the deal for the purchase of the
Trail smelter had fallen through, the
secretary of the War Eagle company
recently asked the Toronto World to
contradict these rumors. He added
that the deal for the purchase of the
smelter by the Gooderham-Blackstock
syndicate is progressing favorably and
that the development of the War Eagle
mine goes on apace.
Paul Hauck and J. Altchison, the lessees of the Bondholder at Slocan, have

realizing 235 ounces of silver and 0\i
per cent lead per ton. The net receipts
from the smelter, after paying freight
and treatment charges, were $2400.
The previous car gave 224 ounces and
the first one 217, so the ore is steadily

Bt. Petersburg, Feb. 18.--M. De Witte,
minister of finance, has issued a decree
regarding the application of the increased
tariff to certain imports from the United
States. The decree is based upon the first
paragraph of article ti'2S of the customs
statute. The measure will become effective a fortnight after ils promulgation.

Washington, Fob. 18.—Count Cassini,
the Russian ambassador, this evening received a cablegram from the Riiosian foreign office continuing the report of the issue of the decree imposing increased dunes
on certain American imports into Russiu,
and took steps to infei'in the state department accordingly it is realized unit a
grave crisis has been reached in the trade
relations of the United States and Russia,
'lhe immediate ell'eet of tlie Russian decree, when ii becomes operative ou Maicii
j 1) will be to increase by 50 per cent tiie
duty on American machinery, sleel and
iron goods.     These goods   already   enjoy
i two separate reductions, 30 per cent bcin;
taken oil from the general and 20 p&!
oent from the conventional duties.      Tht
I articles referred to in the Russian decree
are machinery and tools of every kind,
manufactures and products of east iron
and steel.     Roughly staled,   the    United
I States is said, to have exported goods ol
I this  description   to   Russia   last   year   to
j the amount of about $30,000,0011. 'The addition of 60 per cent to the duty will, it is
thought, prove practically prohibitory.
j The action taken means that the Russian government  will  not  concern  itself
I with a test case nor await the issue of such
a case. However, there is an expectation
that the American importers of Russian
sugar will make thc light in their own
interests. Some im-goes of Russian sugai
are now afloat and on the way to the
United States, where at least one is due lo
arrive in the next 10 days. It is not
doubted that the consignees in the United
States will, rather than pay the counter
vailing duty, which would make it ini]Kis
sib.e to compete with other sugar, make up
a test ease.
The text of the Russian order is as
"An order of the Russian minister ol
finance directs additional tariff of 30 per
cent net on articles included in para

sent to the senate for puhlimtion an
ordinance levying 80 per cent increased
duty on the most important American imports into Russia. The ordinance was
published today in the Official Messenger
and becomes effective March 1. This action is greatly regretted in American circles, and Americans anticipate much harm
therefrom. Well infonned Americans do
not believe the supreme co'urt will sustain
the claim that Russia pays a bounty on
sugar, directly or indirectly, and regard
the action taken as hasty, though not unexpected. It is believed that little liunii
would have resulted to Russian interests

The Story Is Told by a Father Who Is
Grateful for His Daughter's
No. 91 Lincoln avenue, Cortland, N.
Y., was once a bouse of sorrow and
sadness. The danghter of George
Loncks, the pride of the household,
seemed going into a decline as'she
reached her early womanhood and her
condition oaused the greatest anxiety
in tbe family. Tbe happy ending of
the matter caused considerable excitement in the neighborhood and, when
questioned by a reporter, Mr. Loucks
made the following statement:
"About two years ago my danghter.
who was then in ber Kith year, was in
bad health. She was pale and thin,
without strength or vitality, in fact her
condition was that which is genurullv

course, worried about her and employed the best physioiaus to attend her.
Tbey studied her case and although
they did everything popsible, gave hev
no relief which waa permanent. The
late Dr. Angle had first called' my attention to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, aud my wife had beard
they were a fine tonic, so we decided
to try them for my daughter. We did
so and inside of eight weeks the primary cause of her trouble was removed and she showed a decided gain in
health, strength and flesh.
"A great many people will buy a
mediciiib and take a few deses. Then
if they are not oured they throw it
aside as no good, or take it spasmodically. We believe in a lair trial in
strict accordance with directions and
our faitb fulness was rewarded for she
was greatly benefited by them. Her
color came to ber oheeks and she continued to gain in weight and strength.
