This is the style of argument that

All praise is due Mr. McPhillips

narrow considerations and to view
the matter in its true light. He
recognises that the interests of the
province are above that of any particular city or section, and we believe the best people of Victoria

EDITORIAL NOTES.
We cannot help expressing surprise that the Inland Sentinel of
Kamloops, the great champion of
labor and all things good, has not a
word to say in praise of Smith Curtis, the truest friend of labor, and
the masses, in all Canada.
One in four is fair fishing. That
is the phrase Victorians can use
when they talk of honesty among
their representatives in the local
house. McPhillips stands alone for
Victoria and the province.

Nature of Wyoming Platinum Ores.
The finding of platinum in the
copper ores of the Rambler Mine,
about 50 miles southwest of Laramie, Wyo., caused considerable
comment in the mining world a few
months ago, and there was considerable speculation as to how the
metal occurred. In a recent number of the American Journal of Science, H. L. Wells and S. L. Pen-
field state that by alternate treatment of covellite ore from the mine
with strong boiling nitric acid and
caustic soda solution, a concentrate
was obtained from which a few glittering, highly modified crystals
were isolated, weighing approximately 0.00004 gram. These fused
on heating gave a sublimate of
Crystalline arsenious oxide, and the
residue when dissolved in aqua re-
gia gave, on evaporation with ammonium chloride, yellow octahedral
crystals of ammonium platinic
chloride. The crystals, therefore,
were doubtless sperrylite, PtAs2,
but the authors do not assert that
platinum may not occur in some
other form in the ore. Professor
Wilbur C. Knight has published in
the Engineering and  Mining Jour-
that the Rambler ore is generally
platiuiferous, running from 0.06
ounce to 1.4 ounces per ton (0.0002
May 24,1902.
to 0.0048 per cent), and that it may
prove of commercial importance.
The authors express the hope that
copper ores will hereafter be carefully examined for platinum, siuce
the occurrences of sperrylite seem
to show its association chiefly with
ores of copper.—Engineering and
Mining Journal.
