 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
INCREASING SUNSET SHELTER.
Will Treat Eight Hundred Tons Daily
by Next January.
By the first of January, 1903, the
Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls
will be treating 800 tons of ore per
day. Albert I. Goodell, the superintendent, who has returned from
Montreal and New York, states
that during his visit east the Montreal and Boston Copper company,
owning the smelter and the Sunset
mine, decided to immediately begin
the installation of a second furnace.
Plans and specifications are being
prepared, and the order will be
placed in a few days. This will include a new blower, enginer, boiler,
etc. Before blowing in the present
furnace, Mr. Goodell is steel-jack-
etting throughout, thus replacing
the iron jacket. He is trying to
arrange a freight tariff from the
various mining camps to the smelter, and as soon as this is satisfac:
torily arranged with the C. P. R.
' the smelter will be olown in. Capt.
Harry Johns is spending a few
weeks in California, but he is shortly expected home to resume the active management of the Sunset
mine.
With a second furnace the Sunset smelter will be in a position to
handle a large quantity of Republic
ore, and as it is expected that the
railway from Curlew to Greenwood
will be completed early next" year,
a large tonnage is expected from
that high grade camp.—Greenwood Times.
Demand for Copper.
Europe will need a vast amount
of copper during the next four
months because of the increased
consumption there and lessened exports from here, and because contracts with copper producers will
expire, and then American consi
ers must of necessity become large
contractors for their wants. We
estimate that the consumption for
the ensuing four months of this
year will be fully 50,000,000 pounds
per month in America, and that
contracts will be made for export
before December, which will aggregate 12,000 to 15,000 tons per
month. This should carrV.-'htne
price of copper legitimately to 13 or
14 cents per pound in this country,
and advance the price in London
;£io to £15 per ton.—Ex.
Matrimony Defined.
Archbishop Ryan visited a small
parish in the mining district of
Schuylkill county, for the purpose
of administering the sacrament of
confirmation. In examining a
class he asked one poor, nervous,
frightened little girl what matrimony was and she answered that
it was " a state of terrible torment,
which those who enter it are compelled to undergo for a time to prepare them for a brighter and better
world."
"No, no," remonstrated the pastor; " that isn't matrimony. That's
the definition for purgatory.*'
"Leave her alone," said the
archbishop, with  a   twinkle in his
eye; " maybe she's right. What
do you or I know about it?"—

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
PYRITIC  SMELTING A SUCCESS.
Machine Smelts Ore Direct From Mine
Without Roasting or Crushing.
The test of the Garretson pyritic
smelting furnace, made at Crofton
on Saturday, was quite as successful as anticipated by the gentlemen
interested. It must be remembered
that Saturday's trial of the Garretson furnace was not a "blow in" of
the Crofton smelter ; it was simply
a test of the working of the new
furnace in which the proprietors ofl
the Crofton smelter have only such
an interest as all practical metallurgists have in a new process which
promises to revolutionize the treatment of ores. The furnace did all
that its inventors claim for it, and
the test would have proved an unqualified success had it not been for
an unforseen accident which did not
occur in the furnace and for which
it was in no way responsible.
The Garretson furnace demonstrated that it could smelt wet ore
direct from the mine without previous roasting or crushing, with the
least possible consumption of fuel,
that it could reduce the low grade
ore to a very rich matte, and it was
on the point of converting the matte
into pig copper when the accident
referred to intervened. Enough
was done, however, to convince all
concerned that the furnace is capable of performing all the work
claimed for it when it is in perfect
running order.
The furnace also did a trick
which has been held an impossabil-
ity by metallurgists—it reduced to
matte, without fluxes, low grade
ore very heavily charged with bar-
ytes. This puts an end to all doubt
as to the possibility of smelting the
low grade ores of Mount Sicker at
a fair profit, and assures the success
of copper mining on Vancouver Island.—Victoria Colonist.
