PRINCETON, NOV.   J,  J902.
RICHARD RUSSELL SPEAKS OF      I     With the careful management the prop-
THE FAIRVIEW STEMWINDER   erty is   now getting,   economic   mining
New 200-Ton Cyanide Plant Will Be
Ready at the End of the Year—The "
Deal With Englishmen Not
Concluded -Vet.
x" Sometime about the.end of December the new joo-ton cyanide plant at the
Stemwinder will be ready to start operations and the full battery of 46 stamps
dropping," said Richard Russell, managing director of the new Fairview corporation to the correspondent of the Vancouver World.
" The capacity of the mill will be fully
175 tons per day. Meanwhile we are
bending our energies to putting the mine
in such a shape that a continuous supply
of ore will always be available. With
this in view we are pushing forward
stopes on the 200 and 300 foot level:
winze is being sunk on the ore body ot:
the 300 foot level and further prospecting of the big ledge carried on."
Asked regarding the report pf the sale
of  the assets of  the   corporation   tc
English   syndicate, he continued : "
s f>me time past the directors   have h
in communication with responsible  ]
pie in London regarding   a deal  for
property.    We have an offer of $960,
less commissions, and should negotiations
be successfully carried   out, it will   real
ize to our stockholders about 23 cents pet
share.    Meanwhile I am daily expecting
in camp John Hays Hammond, the noted
American mining engineer, and an Eng-
' lish expert to   make an   examination of
the mine.    On the   strength of  their report the deal   naturally   hinges.    Meanwhile we are pushing   forward   the construction of the cyanide   plant   and the
opening of  the mine at   greater   depth.
In fact, I might say that the Stemwinder
never looked   better, and I am   gratified
to announce that as greater depth  is attained a   noticeable   increase   is   bad in
value," he concluded.
Mr. Russell allowed the correspondent
to examine reports made by Charles Os-
tenberg, the company's- superintendent,
regarding the mill runs. The following
extracts speak volumes as showing the
encouraging increase in values as depth
is attained. From a crushing of 2,358
tons of ore from the dump—extracted
from the upper workings in the early
history of the development of the mine
—the average value was $2.82 per ton.
From 14,000 tons taken from the mine,
of which 1,100 tons was from the second
level,'the average was $4.44, while from
a two-weeks' run of ore from the 300 foot
workings the returns gave $8.50 per ton.
The extraction ranged from 73 to 82 per
cent, of the values. Losses in slimes
amounted to about jo per cent, in values;
and this will all be saved when the cyanide plant is in operation, as the superintendent hope* to create a new record in
extraction of up to 85 per cent.
ling, there appears (unless the
unforseen happens) every reason to believe that the New Fairview Corporation,
Ltd., is on the eve of -becoming a substantial dividend payer. However, if the
deal for the sale of the property does go
through it will be to the English investor, instead of the Canadian that the profits will be distributed. After the many
months of hard work, and no little opposition, Mr. Russell has the satisfaction of
seeing the property to which he has given unstintingly the best of his time and
attention, becoming what he has always
enthusiastically upheld it would eventually become—a profit payer.

£ T$ick$l Plate Company Expect to Put
'in Plant at Hedley Before Y
Spring Opens.       tV
David Tfoans. who hasnlled the office
of assayer and chemist for the Nickel
Plate Company, stated in Spokane that
his company would by spring have a
sixty-stamp mill and concentrator plant
in operation at their mines near Hedley,
in the Similkameen country. The mine
are owned by M. K. Rogers, of Seattle
J. R. Toole, of Montana, and the estat
of Marcus Daly. The property, which
originally cost $60,000, has had o'
$600,000 additional expended npon it.
A tramway is being built to   carry 1
from the mine  to the   mill.    The ore
peculiar, being an arsenical iron ore, but
with the peculiar feature of carrying free
gold also.    It has been   ascertained that
is milled! tile TClHahlcTer of the gold is
held in the arsenical iron ore. It, however, is easily concentrated, at a ratio of
ten or eleven i,nl& one, and it will make
a higr/grade product, which can be shipped to the smelters. Such a product will
be in good demand by the smelter men.
The people of the Similkameen, Mr.
Evans says, are confident that railway
transportation will be furnished very
shortly, as they expect that the Canadian Pacific or the Victoria, Vancouver &
Eastern will build through the district
to the coast this year.
NICKEL PLATE FLUME
AND   TRAM^
WAY
The contract for the building q£jj dam
on Twent£_Mile Creek, and a flume from
the dam to the mill site has been let to
a Mr. Mjjnson, a railroad contractor of
Grand Forks,~wHrTstarted to work this
week wltE'a force of fifty men that he
brought in with him. The dam will be
about two miles above the site selected
for the stamp mill.
The contract is said to be a large one,
as the course the flume will follow will
necessitate some heavy rock work. This
is the most favorable time of the year for
the building of the dam on account of
the water bsing low in the-creek.
Only a few men   are   now workinj
the Nickel   Plate   mine, every available
man being employed on the outside.

A TERRIBLE CALAMITY.
HE
Fuller particulars received during the
week in regard to the burning of the Big
Tepee hotel at Fairview on the 22nd of
Oct., show the disaster to have been
much more terrible one than at first
thought.
Two are dead, and a numbe
injured that their recovery is <
The   school   teacher who w
to death, was »et-Aiiss-Moore

who had taken Miss Moore's pli
short time before the fire.
She was warned of the danger by Mr.
French, an employee of L. W. Shat-
ford's, and came out into the hall to es
cape, but returning to her rcom to get
some clothes, she wes overtaken by th(
flames and  destroyed.
The other death was that of JVlrJL-Ma
thias, manager of the hotel, who got oul
safeTyTbut perceiving his wifetwith her
babeifi her arms at a window on the
ondstory he returned to rescue her.
the meantime the fire got so close to
Mathias that she jumped to the ground,
injuring herself to s'uch an extent that it
was found necessary to send her to the
Vernon hospital. Mr. Mathias in fighting his way back through the fire was sc
badly injured that he djed shortly afterwards.    The baby escaped unhurt.
Mr. P. Green, who jumped from a
third stXMayffindow. struck the ground
with such force as to split his foot.
Miss Hunt, who has been employed
the hotel for some years, was only saved
from burning to death by the heroism of
Mr. Jno^ove, the Fairview druggist.
She lost her presence of mind and refused to jump, and he was compelled to
lift her bodily through the window and
drop her to the ground below. Both
hips and both legs were broken by the
force of the fall.
Mr. Love then followed her out of the
window. He had both hands so badly
burned that it is feared they will have to
be amputated.
Dr. ^hitg^wsho jumped from the second story, escaped with a sprained ankle
It is not certain yet how the fire started, the first reports being that it commenced in the basement, while  later ar
rivals from Fairview say it was caused by
the explosion of a lamp hanging in the
hallway.

ANXIOUS TO RETIRE.
It is rumored that Premier Dunsmuir is anxious to retire from his
position as head of the British Columbia Government, and. it is
thought he will likely recommend
Hon. D. M. Eberts as his successor ; although the claim is made
that the Premier agreed to retire in
favor of Col. Prior when he indue-.
ed that gentleman- to take field
against E. V. Bodwell in Victoria.
It is difficult to see how any change
could be made for the worse, and
the probabilities are that the re-or-
gatiized government will be short
lived under the leadership of either
Eberts or Prior, unless McBride
and his following can be induced ; o
re-enter the fold. A dissolution of
the legislature and an appeal to the
electors is the most sa'iis" c:ory
course open for the forming of a
stable government. This district
has no regrets over the retirement
of the present premier. Had he
been a progressive and statesmanlike leader, this rich section might
now have been enjoying- railway
communication with the Coast.

PARTY GOVERNMEN^y.J
The advocates of introducing
party lines into British Columbia
-politics can see something of the
evils of the system in the Lisgar
election trial recently held'in Manitoba. Evidence was brought out
showing that money was freely used in the interests of the Libera
candidate for the purpose of buying votes. It is more than likely
that the election trials now pending in Ontario will show a like
state of affairs in that province.
Such revelations   are instructive
as showing that no system of   gov-
BOTTEED UP.
Says the Rossland Miner . "The
Similkameen country is bottled up.
It will continue to be bottled up until it has railway connection with
the outside world. The McEeans
will keep it bottled up until they
get a subsidy from the Dominion
government to add to the provincial subsidy already promised,when
the C. P. R. will proceed to build
the road, giving the McEeans a big
rake-off of the bonus. Not until
then can we expect the powers to j
be to uncork the bottle."
It is quite possible the Mirier may
; right, but the indications are
that Jim Hill is going to take a pull
at " the bottle " before" either Mc
Eean's or the C. P. R. get around
to it.

The Stemwinder.
Information has been received
from Fairview to the effect that it
will probably be found necessary to
stop some of the stamps at the New
Fairview Corporation's stamp mill,
at the Stemwinder mine, until such,
time as the cyanide plant in course
of installation shall be ready for the
treatment of the tailings, for which
the storage room provi lei is" taxed
to its utmost capacity. As these
tailings are estimated to contain
values to the amount of $4.00 per
ton it would involve a loss should
they be permitted.to escape, so it is
considered best policy to reduce the
quantity of ore being put through
the stamp mill for the few weeks
necessary to complete the cyanide
plant and get it in operation.
Thereafter it will be practicable to
keep the whole of the 46 stamps in
the mill dropping. The lowest level of the Stemwinder is stated to be
showing still further improvement,
with the ore body widening out beyond earlier expectations.—Midway Dispatch.
Dying as Fast as She Could.
• William Pruette, the singer, was
one of a group of married-men who
were discussing housekeeping and
servants the other evening in a
Philadelphia hotel corridor. He
told of a girl who served him and
Mrs. Pruette well enough while
they were living in a New York
flat several years ago, and who one
day went to Mrs. Pruette in tears
and asked permission to go home
for a few days—she had a telegram
telling that her mother was ill.
"Ofcourse, go," said Mrs. Pruette—" only, Maggie, do not stay
longer than is necessary. We need
you."
Maggie promised to return as
soon as possible, and hurried awa3'.
A week passed without a word frcm
her ; then came a note by mail,
reading :
"Deer Mrs. Pruete i will be back

Pyritic Smelting.
It is a fact that true pyritic smelting has not yet been entirely accomplished (by true pyritic smelting is meant the fusion of sulphide
ores without the aid of other fuel
than the sulphur contained in the
ore itself,) still runs of 24 hours at
a time have been made, without
any outside fuel, but slight irregularities compel a olowout, and sc
partial pyritic smelting, or the addition of some coke to the charge is
used at present. Lange defines
matte smelting as : "The smelting
of ores composed of, containing or
giving rise to sulphides, for the purpose of collecting their values in a
less quantity of artificial sulphides."
Pyritic smelting, then, is simply a
division under matte smelting in
that the wasting and smelting operations are carried on at the same
time in the same furnace. ^The advantages to be gained by pyritic
smelting are enormous, and if the
true process can be developed thefe
will be no further fuel bills. As it
is, they are reduced more than half.
There is no time wasted, nor skilled labor required in roasting, and
the extra expense of building a
g roasting plant, just for the purpose
of destroying the fuel which nature
stored in the ore, is avoided. The
process is   not   appiicable to   high
lead and silver ores, as the lead
will volatize ^Afid carry ofF values
with it, ijor.^vjjppsible to work oxi
dized orep ^.^bjs way. Being in
itself an oxidizing process is of use
only for the, fusion of sulphides, as
an*oxi?fe-ore has in it nothing of a
calorfic nattuje.' -This is why it has
not found favor Wjith the highly sil-
icious and oxidized ores of Cripple
Creek, and not because the process
has proven a failure on ores that
are suited for such treatment.-
