A NEW INVENTION.
Copper Ore Can be Treated at a Low
Figure.
A new invention in smelting that
Las liable to revolutionize the president method of treating ore has been
used and found sufficient, says the
Spokane Chronicle. Fred Parker,
an attorney of North Yakima, was
in the city yesterday. In speaking
to a Chronicle reporter concerning
the Hydro Smelting & Refining
Company, of Tacoma, in which he
is interested, he said :
"We have been working on this
experiment for the past five or six
years, and have succeeded in getting down to a point where we can
use it commercially. We have a
plant erected at West Seattle with a
capacity of 20 tons, Where we have
been making our experiments.
One of the chief features of the
smelter is that we burn oil, the oil
converted into gas by a method
protected by a patent. This gives
a peculiar white heat that does its
work well. We are able to secure
4,400 degrees of heat and can control it any place above 100 degrees.
SAVED FULL ASSAY VALUE.
" We have recently made a smelter run of five tons of oro, purchased from the Tacoma  smelter at the
ilue of the ore. This value
per cent, copper and other
hat are unimportant. Under the Tacoma process the ore
must be roasted to get rid of the
sulphur before smelting. The values then saved are about 80 per
cent, and a 40 per cent, copper
matte. This shows the success of
our plan, when we can save more
than the assay value. The high
grade copper matte is also in demand as more easily treated.
' We have spent between $35,-
000 and $40,000 in experimenting,
and have now reached the place
here we know we have something
of great value. We have recently
purchased 175 tons of ore from Tex-
ada Island, and the consignment is
about due at Seattle. About April
15 we expect to start the smelter on
a steady run.
CAN TREAT ORE FOR $2.50 PER TON
"This is the first time I have
said anything about the new smelt
er for publication, but I am so
thoroughly convinced of its worth
that I will put in a custom smelter,
after the make of the one we have
in Seattle, on Camp creek in the
Cle Elum district. I am putting
my own money into the smelter, I
am interested in a number of properties there, and besides treating
the ore from them will take custom
ore.    The smelter will start with a
capacity of 50 tons per day.
There is one great   advantage
the new system has shown over the
;d   besides   the   saving of values,
id that is the cheapness of smelt-
ig.    The fuel used by our process I
ill cost but 50 cents per ton, while
the other   expenses will   be about
the same as in an ordinary smelter.
We will   be able^.to treat   ore   for
$2.50 per ton.
We should be glad to get ore '
from this side of the mountains,
id later on will make an endeavor
1 do so. Bob Young, a mining
engineer of Tacoma, is president of
the company ; A. W. Catton of Seattle is vice-president and manager,
and B. Maclean is secretary."
"MINES AEE MADE, NOT POUND'
Ossasionally, as the saying is, a
mine pays from the "grass roots."
This is a very rare exception, says
the Black Hills Mining Review.
The records of the largest mines of
today all show that many thousands, and in some cases, millions of
dollars were expended for machinery and labor to open up the ore
bodies, sufficiently for their economical and profitable working,
before the mines paid expenses and
dividends. Everyone knows that
time and money must also be put
into large   undertakings   in  e**,
other business, bef
can be expected ; a
so in mining. Bt*
profits in mining
greater than the pr
er business.
THE TBTJE MOTIVE  OF TEADES
UNIONS.
vas given regardless of member-
hip to their order, and whether the
ick had money or not to pay for
ittendance. We are glad to see
that the county commissioners have
donated script warrants of $1,000 to
reimburse the union for caring for
and burying the dead who were
not members of the union. The
warrant was drawn to J. L. Butler,
who cashed it at 85 cents, and in
addition drew a personal check for
$1,000 and presented it as a gift to
the union. The work ofthe union
can be appreciated by the fact that
they disbursed over $3,000 in caring for the sick and burying the
dead. The transactions reflect the
greatest credit on each and every
one connected with them.—Mining
Reporter.

News has been received in
city that oil has been struck in the I
Kootenay oil fields, just twenty
miles northeast of the Kintla Lake
oil fields, on the Canadian side.
•The company operating there has
sunk a well 320 feet, and at that
depth there has been secured a
large flow of natural gas and a
small How ot oil. The drill has
struck under the edge of the over-
thrust, as it is technically called,
and may not have to go much deeper to reach the cretaceous formation
in which the lake oil is to be found.
Those in charge of the operations
are greatly encouraged, and drilling
will be continued as rapidly as possible.—Great Falls Tribune.
