J. Frank Collom, managing director
of the Arlington, spent several davs
iu Spokane this week, on his way here
from San Francisco. He was in consultation with Prof. J. S. Parks. M.E., 1 ble"width"
who examined the Arlington last Sep
tember, with regard to th»» new mill
to bo erected by the company on the
property in the spring. Mr. Collom
was also in the east and while there
purchased much of the equipment for
tht! plant.
In order to thoroughly tost ores of
tlm Arlington character, Prof. Parks
is installing a plant in Spokane, and.
in --peakingof it, Mr. Collom said:
The trial plant is a unit half the
size of the unit; which will be installed. The mill will have an initial capacity of f>0 tons a day, but that can

serious fall in the market price ol
those metals. Hitherto the whole of
tlie mining work had been in the development of winking a high grade
silver vein, which, although broken iu
its centre by a well defined fault, had
not, so far as its development had advanced, shown signs of pinching out:
in fact, it was understood that this
vein could be traced for a considerable
distance from their property. What
might also prove to be an important
factor in the value of the mine was the
fact that another vein had been discovered on the propeity of considera
As thev would have learn
ed from Mr. Fowler's report, steps
were lieing taken for the prospecting
of this vein, at a depth of some 150
feet below its outcrop, nnd should this
vein open up in the same manner as
thev were hopeful it would do, the
value of their property would lx* very
considerably enhanced. From surface
indications this vein, whilst, not expected to produce ore of so high a
grade as the liest they were working,
was of greater width, and should
therefore produce a large quantity of
concentrating ore, for the treatment of
which th*" mill is adapted
In a letter received that morning
from their engineer. Mr. Fowler, it is
stated that this new vein had lieen

least, what   thev  believed to lx* this

ore from the vein worked showed a
large percentage of /inc. which had
not hitherto been marketable in British Columbia; in fact, its presence
over and above S or 10 per cent, was
penalized by the smelters. Their
management, therefore, found the
b"st results, under the circumstances,
by so arranging the mill 80 as to produce two products one high in lead

"We have shipped about BOOO tonsjsequently, had  to await a favorablt
cal market in Canada for British
Columbia ores, the benefit of which
would tend largely to remove the disabilities under which they were at
present laboring.
Their engineer informed them that
a much better demand had arisen for
zinc ores than had hitherto existed ,and
they were therefore hopeful of better
things in that respect. The poor result of last year's work was to a large
extent due to the fact that the whole
of the work done at the mine had to
be carried on in a very costly manner,
namely, by hand lalxir. During this
year they had the advantage of machinery, and, consequently, were in a
much better position in that respect.
On the other hand, thi! condition of
the metal market was infinitely worse
than it was "then.
During the last two years the market prices of silver and lead had
gradually fallen, lead from something
like £18 to under £11 per ton, and
silver from about 2s (id an ounce to
22 8T6d per ounce, which their directors could only view with the greatest
concern; so much so that it became
a question whether it would not be
better to temporarily shut dowu the
mine until better prices prevailed
They had given this matter consinera-
tion for some time, but had delayed
taking definite steps, in the hope that
bedrock had been reached, and that
the markets would improve. But that
had not been the case. Their directors were therefore again seriously
considering the question from that
point of view. Owing to the geological character of the mine, he did not
think damage would result from a
temporary suspension of operations:
but while silver and lead stood at such
extremely low prices, it Beamed only
a matter of prudence that this step
should lie taken. He Ixigged to move:
•'That the report aud accounts to December 81, l90l,now submitted to this

motion, said he visited the property
