All Is Well at Kiinberly.  London, November; 10.���The war  office has received the following- dispatch from GeneraL Buller, dated Capetown, Wednesday evening, November  8: "Colonel Kokewich telegraphs from  Kimberly November 8 that all is well  and there has been no serious attack as  yet.

London, November 10.���The English  war office gets but' few scanty., reports  and feels gloomy over Ladysmith.' The  Boers, it believes, are planning a sudden fierce onslaught, which must occur  soon; General Buller's forces will ad-  rance from. Durban to the interior.  The announcement that 3,000 Boers  with big guns left Praetoria on their  way to the southern border is said to be  merely a ruse to hide the real destination of the force, which is believed, to  be Ladysmith. Those best, qualified  to express an opinion object to ..the  quietness of the Boers, which is ominous, and they expect shortly to hear  of large accessions to the Boer giins in  position and a severe bombardment of  the beleagured camp.

London, Nov. 7.���Dispatch from  Capetown says an encounter at Lady-'  smith resulted in a great jvictory for,  British who captured nearly 2,000 Boers  Yesterdays dispatches disproves the  continential story that Ladysmith had  fallen. The dispatch revives anxiety  in another direction however'in that  White, instead of acting wholly, on defensive persists in, his sortie, thereby  risking other disasters. Generally,  however, the cheery tone of the dispatches'shows no anxiety . as regards  the ability of the garrison to' hold- its  own.  The movements of Capetown Boers  awaken fears that the British have  underestimated the forces to be  met. It -is said . J. that , "the  Colenso garrison .' saved all its ,  .stores.

W.  S. Fletcher is erecting a- large building  on Deadwpqd ;street. which; will -be used,  for this purpose; and A'i Fisher and  associates.arebt^ldiug another, at -the  corner of Silver and Greenwood streets..  Mr. Fletcher, will'ask'"for '^a license to  sell liquor oh.; the premises, and a  movement is on foot that' only one  music hall be licensed until, the city .  has a population of 6.000. .Mr. Fisher  very naturally objects to this. Both  are being opposed by the licensed victuallers, who last Wednesday week presented a petition" from the citizens  asking that no such licenses be granted  until an'opportunity:, were givqnfor a  full discussion of the matter.  The trade licen'se'bylaw,was amended;  last week by making the fee for itinerant insurance agents $100 for every six  months, and S50 the limit  allowed  by  the act for jewellery- peddlers.    A!t the  same time, music hall or theatre licenses  were   fixed 'at..$75   for    every    three  months. ��� The question of  the sale of  liquors on  such  premises  must come  up under the liquor, license  bylaw,  so  Aid. Galloway  gave'' notice  to  amend  this bylaw by fixing license for sale  of liquor in music halls at S200'for  six  months.    That    only    four   of   these  should be granted and that only one be ���  granted, until  the. population   reaches  6,000.      This /bylaw    was    considered  again, when  Mr.   Prihgle   represented  Mr.     Fletcher's     interests.     It     was  amended at his suggestion so  that the  license   to   sell   liquor   in music   hall  premises   will   be   $200   for every six  months,  the  building  to  cost not less  than $10,000, and after the first license  is  granted  no second license shall be  granted  unless  the   building cost   at  least S2S.OO0.    The fight was made last  Wednesday   evening-;    City    Solicitor  Lcamy started it by   holding  that  the  bylaw was bad law and   would   be  upset in the courts.    Mr. Pringle wanted  to know in what respect the bylaw was  bad law.  Aid. Wood and   Galloway   supported  the bylaw.  Mayor Hardy claimed that no business should be protected by the council.  Aid. Fisher said, that Aid. Wood and  Galloway were not anxious to protect  him when Fletcher started a..sawmill  in opposition to his during dull times,  but they were now very anxious to  protect Fletcher when he (Fisher)  undertook to build a music hall to compete with Fletcher.;  John Si Holland addressed the council and stated that he and associates  were prepared to'build a music hull in  the city but not a S25.0OO one. They  were quite prepared to.run nothing but  a respectable show. The discussion  went on for some time, Mr. Leamy  again asserting that the bylaw was  bad law. that the council had not  power to restrict business in this way.  The council, however, passed the bylaw, and Mr. Leamy at once tendered  his resignation, but it was hot  considered.  ���tr*  a  crq   .  ���<>>-���  -O"  :>i  ) B>  H     -  {**��"  /Sep  > to  KSj'i-t zr���_, n  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  i. i(. iiaJ-i-i:ti'.

'  The Medical  Officer of Health  Makes a Suggestion to the Council.  Dr. Schon, the city healtn officer, has  written to the council in reference to  the disposal of refuse and also to an  economical method of securing electric  light. Dr. Schou suggested that a  committee be formed ��o enquire into  the practicability of burning the solid  sewage and refuse in one of the blast  furnaces attached to the smelter which  is about to be erected. Dr. Schon had  a conversation with Mr. Paul Johnson  on the subject and he saw no difficulty  in being able to burn it.  His object in bringing the subject before the council at so early a date was  that arrangements might be made with  the smelter company so that any modification of construction of furnance to  meet requirements .might be effected  from commencement. There can be  no question as to the efficiency of 'this  process of disposing of this solid refuse;  the next question to be considered will  be the disposal of the liquid part; This  can only'be carried out by a system of  drainage throtigout the city, the house  slops, etc.,'being drained to a series of  tanks; these being subject to a chemical  process, after which the principal effluent might be allowed to find its way  ultimately into the water course.  "Some very expensive plan of drainage  for this rapidly increasing town may  become necessary in the future, but I  think theadoption, such as I am suggesting, would not cost a very great  deal and would answer the purpose for  some time to come."   Dr. Schon suggested an.other idea to  the effect that the city burn all its refuse and thus be able to generate electricity to light the town. This has been  successfully done in England, notably  in the parish of.Shoreditch, in east end  of London, and has proved not only an  excellent means of disposing of refuse,  but also a source of profit in the process.

Spokesman-Review Correspondent Writes  i ;About the Big Reduction Plant, j  f,"WejdonH care ��� about contracts,.' as  we propose tosmelt ore:so ^cheap that  the mine owners will come to us. How  cheap? Well, from three to four dollars  a ton; so that, until this rate is lowered,'  there will be no chaiice of the ores  going to other smelters until we get  what we want."  This statement was made by Paul  Johnson, M. E., superintendent of the  smelter department, of the British  Columbia Copper Conipanyi'in' answer  to a question put by the travelling correspondent of the Spokesman-Review.  The anssver was. made with a conviction that carried weight. The  smelter now being constructed at  Greenwood by. the big company owning the Mother Lode mine,-will be. a  custom smelter, and the above statement, made by the superintendent of  the smelter, was no idle boast of what  they intend doing, but was the first  authoritative information on this important subject given out for publication. .  On the outside little has been heard  of what the British Columbia Copper  Company is doing. That the company  has ample funds at its back has been  more than demonstrated by the extensive and elaborate development of  the Mother L,ode���now regarded as the  biggest mine in a country of big mines  ���Boundary Creek. It will also be  remembered that that the company in  order to develop the Mother Lode property brought into the province the  most extensive and complete plant of  machinery for such a purpose. Now  that the mine has turned out so .well  the company is erecting its own smelter  plant to treat ores.  BUILDING THE.. SMKl.TKK.  Today, . in company with ��� Superintendent Paul Johnson, the correspondent was shown over the site of the  smelter and found SO men hard at work  grading the site, blasting out rock and  building foundations. The site is  barely 12 minutes walk, by trail, from  the center of the city. It is on a fairly  high elevation above Boundary creek  and lies between the railroad spur  running to Deadwood camp, which !  crosses the elevation at the highest :  point, and the  main  line of the Co!- i  uni.bia & Western railway; at the lower-  end. From the Deadwood camp ���spur  a ��� branch , will', be i'ruh'; ; to -take the  Mother Lode'ore directly to the smelter bins, and a branch from the same  spur a little lower down will bring in.  custom ores, coke and supplies, and a  third spur from the main line.will take  away the matte and copper 'bullion,.  The site is an ideal one for a smelter  in every respect:   '   "  'GKAVITV DOES IT.AT.L.  ';���'���'���  The plans for the smeller, .show it to  be arranged on an absolute gravity  system. The smelter will start with a  capacity of 300 tons daily. Starting  from the upper end the ore will be  dumped from the railroad cars into  storage bins with a capacity of 4000  tons. From these ��� bins the -ore is  dropped into cars that will contain 15  cubic feet of ore, and these are run  into a sampling mill. The: sampler  has a capacity of 300 tons every 10  hours. The ore first goes through a  No. 5 Gates crusher, then to a Brunton  automatic sampler. One-fifth of the  ore goes as a sample, and the other  four-fifths continues down to the bins.  This one-fifth sample '. then goes  through a number of crushers until it  finally reaches a fineness'that gives an  absolutely truthful .sample of the whole  product.  Following this one-fifth sample on  its journey, it becomes interesting to a  layman unversed in the smelting  business to note the '���number of times  it is crushed, resnmpled and pulverized  before it comes to the correct proportions to be used by the assayer. From  the Brunton automatic sampler this  sample is again crushed in a No. 2  Gates crusher to the size of one inch  and a half. Then it,goes into another  Brunton sampler and one-fifth passes  through an elevator to the original  :height from which it started, while  the balance goes to the bins. This  one-fitli sample then passes through a  Dodge crusher and comes out in lumps  three-eights of an inch in size, but  only one-fifth is retained. This  passes through rolls that crush it to  one-twelfth of an inch mesh. Again  it is divided, ouc-lifth this time t^oing  to sample grinder where it is cut down  by hand and the s;iniij!c goes to the  bucking room to be passed  through   :t  Cl'lltill UW.l  Oil   1'illfi!

Nkvbk   in   the  history of 'municipal  government  has  there  been   a  worse  piece of stupid bungling than that connected   with   negotiations looking   towards the securing of electric light and  the construction of a   tramwaj . .  Had  the council   taken   advantage-of  ever  particle of genius at theirdisposal they  could not have succeeded in mi sin an aging the  affairs  more successfully nor  .placing the city in a . more  unenviable  posi'ioiu     They  gave  encouragement  to business men of standing,   and  repute  to  submit  propositions and then  treated   such   propositions  with   contempt.      Thej-  attempted  to  use   the  bonafide business proposition   of  business men   for   petty 'purposes.     The  negotiations    have   been   a   series   of  petty acts of men   without  fixed  opinions of their own and without sufficient  courage'to  take  a decided   stand  on  anything.     Instead    of   occupying   a  dignified position in   the  matter,   they  placed  themselves  in the hands of one  syn'licate and then had   not the manliness to treat fairly with that syndicate.  It was so easy to secure  a  fair  bargain for the city and.at the skme  time  deal justly with all parties that-'incom-  peteiicy is the only excuse to  offer  for  the miserable fiasco that.has been  en-r  acted.    The position   of  the ]city   was  one of great advantage.     There  were  three  strong  syndicates   in   the   field.  When the first  two propositions were  submitted   the   council   should'   have  taken,  them   under   advisement   and  evolved a proposition  satisfactory to  the city.    In the meantime Mr. Sutherland or anyother bonafide party should  have been free to  make offers.     The  city could then have said   "Gentlemen  we are prepared to do this.     Are you  willing to accept ?"     If more(.than one  party accepted, the choice could then  be made and the matter  finally settled  without     unseemly    wragling..      No  party could then feel  aggrieved, nor  could anyone    say- he had   not   been  fairly treated. As it is P. Welch & Co.,  can 'very  properly  charge the council  with  discourtesy  and  injustice.     Mr.  Sutherland has even a stronger griev-  ence than P. Welch & Co.    He was led  to believe that the council would tceat  a business" proposition  in  a business  way, but he was placed in the position  of having'his proposition treated with  contempt and then   used as a weapon  to injure those he was ready to meet in  fair competition   but  in no other way.  The failure to secure   either electric  light or tramway would  hurt  the city  less  than  the establishing of the fact  that those representing the city are incapable of caro'ing on   business in a  business like  way.     The city  cannot  afford to treat men like P. Welch & Co.  or the Dominion Copper company with  discourtesy.      They   will   not   permit  themselves to be used as  tools by the  city. ...:���.. ���  -,    ���;  We have not one word to say against  Mr. Mcintosh and his associates and  they are in no way responsible for the  small, tactics that have been used.  Nothing that has been done should  prejudice the ratepayers against them  nor their proposition. They came into  the field with an offer and asked no  favors. They are prepared to carry  put everything contained in their  agreements. Their proposition was  entitled to careful consideration but so  were the offers of the othercparties in  the field.    .  Thk   current   issue   of.   the  British  contains  an  is found endorsing the unwarranted  criticisms of a gentleman who cannot  rise above the dictates of pretty  jealousy.  Thk creation of a music hall monop-  ly can not be justified. ', That the intention of the by-law passed by the  the council is to create such a monopoly  is palpable to everyone. If music halls  are to benefit the town, they should be  encouraged not restricted. If it be  detrimental to the best interests of  the city to allow the sale of liquor in a  music hall, it should not be tolerated.  The wording of the by-law cannot alter  the purpose for which it was passed. It  simply abolishes-competition because  no man will invest S25,000 in a building  to be used for such a purpose.  Ik Greenwood had a council that.  were capable of transacting business  in a business like way what a glorious  opportunity presented itself to make  the city one of the largest in the  country. The is a-tide in the affairs of  city as well as in those of men that if  taken properly lead on to fortune.  Did Mayor Hardy get a telegram  from Hugh Sutherland on Saturday  last? Did he place that telegram before the .municipal council? If not,  why not ? _.   Duncan McIntosh ...can make as  strong'a talk in advocating an electric  light franchise as he does in extolling  the riches of the Winnipeg.  It is reported that certain gentlemen'  willcollaborate and publish an expurgated edition of '"The Light that  Failed."  \Me ��Sa *^a 4^* *^�� i^.t^.ify*fyiify<fyjj��jj��nfy*fy��fy*fy,tfytfy,tfy, ify t& *��> t& t& JR. <A> JR. t& JL ��fi��  CORNER  COPPER AND CENTRE STREETS.  oo  fit  4!

Hugh Sutherland Submits a Reasonable Proposition, "But the Council Refuse to Consider  It ��� Question of Prices ��� Several Lively  Tilts.   .,'  Electric lighting has stirred the people to take a new interest in municipal  affairs and eloquent city fathers no  longer have to waste their similes or  epigrams, upon ...the . dismal looking  walls of the court house. An audience  braves the ( vitiated air of a poorly  ventilated building in order to drink  in the wisdom that is dished up by the  members of the municipal council.  Probably no .-other city in the Dominion, was complimented by so many  flattering offers to give it light arid, in-'  cidentally to give the denizens of Phoenix an opportunity to enjoy the comforts of a strictly:Up-to-date city.; First  " P.

That within ninety days of the final passage  of a by-law by the rate-payers, ratifying an  agreement to be entered into between the City of  Greenwood and the proposed company embodying the said proposition, the proposed" company  will instal, equip and put in. operation ah electric light.system for the;use.of -the publics and  supply-any.person.unpersons .within the;Iimita  of the city electric light at the following rates :  .For incandescent lamps of 16-caudle power,  $1.35 per "light" per "month' "for all night light;  SI per month for stores and all places of business, and 05 cents per mouth for-private houses.

Mr. Pringie asked for ah adjournment until Wednesday evening in order  to give Mr. Sutherland an opportunity  to submit an agreement along the  lines laid down-in his letter. The Dominion' Copper company whom Mr.  Sutherland represents were practically  the first inj the field to open negotiations looking towards the securing of a  franchise for electric light and tramway- Immediately upon the receipt of  a.telegram Mr. Sutherland left Winnipeg for Greenwood and submitted a  proposition much more favorable than  any that had heretofore come before  the council. The council were no  doubt anxious to guard the interests of  the ratepayers by securing the very  best bargain. They desired an opportunity to ���; compete for the franchise".  It was only necessary to point out that  they would allow the use of meters to  show how much more favorable their  proposition was. .- With meters the  people were charged for the light, they  used and no more.  Mr. Shaw, representing Mr. Mcintosh, objected to any adjournment.  The council had decided to consider  Mr. Mcintosh's proposition and they  should either grant the franchise or  refuse it before negotiating with others.  Mr. Sutherland had been in the field  for some months' but did -nothing.  Any adjournment would be unfair to  Mr. Mcintosh,  Mr.  Mcintosh pointed out that  "we  poor devils were forced to  put  up  good  hard money with  the city,  Mr. Sutherland hasn't done so."  . Mayor Hardy stated that the city was  at  present  doing   business   with, Mr.  Mcintosh and that they couldn't deal  with two parties at; the one  time.    If  they dropped Mcintosh  and  negotiations with Sutherland failed, it. is  not  likely Mr. Mcintosh, would be ready to  reopen the negotiations.  Mr. Pringie replied that they didn't  ask that Mr. Mcltosh's proposition be  thrown aside; all they wanted was to  place both parties oh an equal footing.  It was the duty of the council to make  the very best bargain possible.  Mayor Hardy: "We will look after  that. We haven't passed the bylaw  and will fix it to suit.ourselves."  Aid.' Sutherland proposed that the  Mcintosh agreement be taken up; Aid'.  Fisher seconded the motion.  -Aid. Galloway advised the.council,to  make haste slowly.". The; people would  certainly not sanction a bylawi know-  ing.a much more favorable proposition  had'been submitted to the "council.   ,-.  Mr. Mcintosh wanted -the1 matter  settled. He wasn't going ;to' wait an  indefinite time. He wanted his proposition accepted or rejected. >;He wasn't  preparel to amend his proposition to  suit Mr. Sutherland who" quoted lower  rates than were ever quoted before. If  his proposition didn't suit the council  all they had to do was to return his  checks.  Aid. Sutherland's motion was then  carried.

Continued from page 3. .  120-mesh seive. The ore then'��� goes to  the, assayer. It is mechanically as  true a sample of the whole of the  original ore as can be obtained. ,  The balance of the rejected ore drops  again into cars,and is run into the ore  mixing bins, each holding 150 tons.  There are 38 of these bins. From  these bins th��- ore is fed into the fur-  nice. For the present one 300-ton  furnace will be built, but the plans  provide for live more, which would  give a total capacity of 1800 tons  every 24 hours. The furnace room  will be 60x40 feet in size. -The"'boiler  room , is 45x50 feet, and the blower  house 45x60 feet. The boiler room is  planned so as to be extended to hold 12  ,100 horse-power boilers, and the' same  is true of the blower room to hold  seven No. 7 Connersville blowers.  Each blower will furnish a blast for  one furnace, leaving one blower for  reserve. Each,blast furnace will have  a size of 44 inches by 150 inches at  tyers. ��� ���  THKKE HUNDRED TOKS A DAY  The plant will start with one furnace  which on the kind of ore to be treated-  copper-will be of a capacity'to smelt  300.tons in 24 ^hours' Nature has already provided these ores-from Dead-  . wood camp-with the necessary iron, ore  and lime in right proportions to flux  the silica in the ore. In other words  the ores are practically self fluxing.  The furnace will be of a new design'to  preheat'the blast so that the smelting  will be done on: the socalled pyritic  smelting principle, which means utliz-  irig the sulphur for fuel and" thereby  only using half the amount of,coke for  fuel necessary tinder, the Old system.  The coke will be supplied'from the  Crow's Nest mines and about 20 tons a  day will be" required. -..%  On a level immediately beneath the  blast furnace department will be the  convertor department, where tlie' molten matte is taken down from the blast  furnace and poured into convertors lined.with silica and blown up to blister  copper with 98 per cent, copper, besides silver and gold. The "'.bullion  from the moulds is brought directly onto the railroad cars arid" shipped to  electrolytic copper refining works in  eastern states for final treatment.'.  The work already1 accomplished includes the grading for the boiler, blow-  house and blast furnace departments  and the building of solid stone retaining walls. The side spurs mentioned  have been surveyed and work on the  roadbeds will start next week.* Two  temporary buildings, one for thesuper-  tendent and one for the head foreman  and draughtsmen, have been erected.  It is hoped to have the smelter built  and in full (.last by June of next year.  In the meantime the employment of a  large number of men in building of  same will add a nice payroll to the  city. ���-...-'  While the smelter is being built  mainly to treat Mother Lode ore-, yet it  will also be a custom smelter that will  have much to say in regulating the  price of treatment throughout the  Boundary district.    Beside the Mother  Lode in D^adwood camp, such min. s a*  the Morrison, Sunset, Buckhorn, Arlington-Burns group, Iron Top and  others in the same camp will by the  time the smelter is completed be ready  to ship to ore. The Mother Lode mine  is only three miles by the railroad  from the smelter and these other mines  are hearer. The fact that the company  announces such a cheap rate of smelter  treatment as S3 and $4 is expected to  give great encouragement to the  owners of low-grade copper ore bodies,  within a reasonable distance to the  smelter, to prosecute more than ever  their development to a shipping stage.  The British Columbia Copper company  is out for business and is announcing  this low rate through the Spokesman-  Review does so to show that a smelter  can be run profitably to treat low-  grade ore at a most reasonable cost  and without the necessity of using  power other than that generated by  coal. The cost of running this smelter  by the use of coal alone will, as regards the power plant, only amont to  five cent per ton of ore treated. The  advantage of steam compared to'elec-  tricity or water power is that one can  always rely on it and not have any interference in smelter operations which  is the annoying experience of a number of plants where they have introduced electrical power.  Of the gentlemen at the head of the  smelting department of the British  Columbia Copper Company, PaulJohn-  son, M. E., the capable superintendent,  it can be truthfully said that few men  in the smelter business have so wide  and extended an experience. He is ��� a  graduate of the Royal Technical High  School and Mining Academy of Stockholm, Sweden. He has in turn been  superintendent of the Helsingbore  Copper works.

The City of  Greenwood is proud to claim Mr. Johnson as one of its citizens, as for the  short time he has been here he has  perhaps done more than any other one  man to help along the industry that is  destined to make this place one of the  coming cities of the province.

As the bylaws are published iri the Boundary  Creek Times, their is no necessity for  going into details here. Voting day  has be&n fixed for Nove,inber 23rd.  Before preceding with the consideration ' of the by-laws, the following  routine work was considered:  The Standard Publishing company  again asked the council to purchase 25  copies of the Kootenay annual, but the  request was refused. ,  Dr. Schon's letter dealing with sanitary matters was placed on file.  The' committee reported that Mack-  inaws and rubber boots, had been purchased from Rendell & Co. -  The consideration of the British Columbia Copper company's application  re purchased of land, was deferred to  Monday evening.  When the by-law dealing with the  sale of liquor in music halls came up  for third reading, Mayor Hard3' advised the council to not take chances of  expensive litigation by passing the bylaw.  City Solicitor Leamy again said   the  law was bad and that the firm of  Hal  lett & Shaw had already been retained  to quash it.  Mr. Shaw stated that he had been so  retained and thought the by-law could  be quashed. The council passed the  third reading, Aid.
