LIMITED  CINDER   CONCRETE  / STANDS HARD TESTS  It is claimed by those who favor the  more general and extensive use of cinder concrete that as it has proved it-  ' self capable of successfully supporting  great weights and withstanding unusual strain and stress when used in  -floors, there are no valid reasons why  the same material cannot satisfactorily replace other and heavier materials used in wall construction.    :  The advantages 'of cinder  concrete.1  construction, it is said, will be many,  chief among them being a great saving  in dead load in the walls of buildings,  thereby affecting a great saving in the  cost of steel structures.   A plan which  has been proposed, and which may be  tried on a projected building in this  city   before  long,   contemplates   pouring the concrete floor and walls of the  story; immediately beneath, as one operation.    It is pi-oposed    to'   weather  proof the walls with a" coat of gunite,  after the method used by the cement  gun companies' on a great number; of  important structures throughout Canada and the United tates.   The use of  this material will result in thoroughly  sealing up every void, in the concrete  and allow any finish that the architect  may desire. V  Cinder concrete is no longer in the  experimental stage. Its fireproof and  weight-carrying capacity are no longer  questionew.    Cinder concrete walls of  a test house erected at the Columbia  University testing station, in Brooklyn,  have stood an experiment lasting over  forty hours, divided into four-hour per-  iods, during which they were subjected to heat 1,700 degrees   Fahrenheit,  followed by an immediate application  of cold  water from  a'high   pressure  main.    These walls  were constructed  by two Columbia undergraduates during their vacation and the tests were  conducted  under the  direction of Ira  H. Wilson, engineer   of   the   National  Board of-Fire Underwriters, and Prof.  James H. McGregor of Columbia University.    These walls are  believed  to'  have stood,»a  greater fire  and water  stress than any walls ever tested,  '.   ■  ■ ■     * ■ i  Cinder concrete has  the advantage  of being much cheaper than other  forms of concrete and vast quaiuities  of its component parts have been daily  going to waste in the past when its  use was chiefly restricted to sidewalk  construction. In recent years, however,  cinder concrete floors have been used  in hundreds of important buildings  with complete satisfaction.  (condition.    Most of the stock in  company is held in Rossland.  A steadily increasing pile, of zinc  concentrates, is piling up at the Rose-  bery plant of the Rosebury-Surprise  Mining company in the Slocan, due" to  the fact that things are at present  not favorable for .the profitable marketing of a zinc product.  MINING  The outlook in Sandon for the season is regarded as being very favorable. With the going of the snow, activity is, increasing in all directions  and' many inquiries are being received  from outside points with regard to  mining prospects and properties.  The tramway of the Wonderful  mine, near Sandon, is in shape and  was given its initial tryout last week.  It is about half a mile in length and  has one span of over a thousand feet  in length without a tower, probably  one of the longest spans in the dis-j  trict.  Several copper claims have been located 35 miles northeast of'Lac !a  Hache; also at the head of Gun, creek.  A < branch railway may be built from  the P. G. E.

The "Iron Trade Review" says:  "Better business is appearing in all  quarters of the iron and steel market,  clearly marketing a  rebound  in  confl-  j dence after the weeks of passive waiting induced by the Washington price  wrangle. Buyers apparently are bringing themselves more nearly to a ccn-  j viction that no great concessions from  | present price levels may be expected  under prevailing conditions.    There.is  more disposition to accept the situation at its face value and to plan for  the future.   While business still is of  a spotty character, the stronger senti-  ment applies to all lines and where orders have not yet appeared  in  more  liberal volume prospects have'improv-  jed.   The situation compares favorably  with the moderately broadening mar-  iket that ruled before the government  [price plan was brought forward. Nothing shows the new temper of the market more plainly than the renewed in  ,terest of buyers. '   ■    -.
