Reported That 0. B. Smith  and Associated Secured  II fid PHUT  In Skylark Camp���Vein of Very High  Grade Ore,  A report is current here and at  Phoenix that O. B. Sic.ith, superintendent of the Granby mines, and his  associates have bonded the famous  Skylark miue from the owner in Butte.  The report could not be con firmed since  Mr. Smith left for the east a few days  ago but it is generally accepted as  true.  The Skylark is one of the oldest and  best developed claims in Skylark  camp. It was located in July 1893 and  bonded to the Spokane and Great  Northern company who went to work  shortly afterwards and during the  winter of 1903 04 shipped about 100  tons to the smelters, the first class ore  running ISO to 300 ounces silver and  $15 to $20 in gold; the second class 90  to 150 ounces in Silver and up to $75 in  gold per ton. In the autumn of 1897  another shipment was made to the  Montana smelter by the present  owner. On the claim is a vein having  a northerly and southerly trend with  an easterly dip of high grade silver-  gold ore varying in width from three  inches to 18 inches wide. The pro  perty is developed by an incline shaft  100 feet deep and about 300 feet of  drifting and some surface cuts.  Considerable work was done on the  property in 1898, under the superintendence of C. E. Ruger of Butte, but  owing to lack of transportation facilities it was then closed down and the  owner never resumed operations on  the property. Several parties attempted to secure it under lease or bond but  without success.  It is hoped that the report that O. B.  Smith and his associates have acquired  the property is true since it is sure to  become another dividend" payer'"on  Greenwood's high-grade belt.  BESSEMERIZING PLANT  At The Smelter of The B. C- Copper  Company, Ltd.  The current issue of the Mining  Record contains a well written and  well illustrated article descriptive of  the B. C. Copper company's reduction  woiks. Regarding the Bessemerizing  plant it stales :  '���A Bessemerizing plant has been  installed and the product now turned  out is 99 per cent, blister copper instead of 4i> per cent, copper matte as  formerly. This plant consists of two  converting stands, equipped with five  shells of the trough type, 84 in. in  diameter and 126 in. long. The con  verters are tilted by power supplied  by a hydraulic  accumulator.  For the purpose of conveying the  molten matte from the blast furnaces  to the converters, and for moving the  shells from their stands to the re-lining platform, an ' electric travelling  crane is used. Four motors operate  this crane, which is equipped with a  main hoist of 40 tons capacity and an  auxiliary hoist of ten tons.  The fumes from the converters are  taken off by an independent stack,  having first passed through steel boxes  at the back of the stands, a suitably-  shaped steel flue of twenty squa'e feet  cross-section, and finally a brick chamber of 285 square feet cross-section, in  order to collect the flue dust, before  being conducted into the stack. (The  brick chamber and stack are shown in  illustration No. 1. and the boxes and  steel flue in illustration No. 2.)  The converting plant is housed in a  steel building, 46 ft. x  90   ft.   with   a  lean-to of 60 ft. x 30 ft. At one end of  this building is located the re-lining  machinery. The silicious ore used for  the linings passes directly from the  sampling mill, through a 7 x 10 inch  Brake crusher, aud a set of 24 inch  rolls, into a bin, from which chutes  lead to a 6-ft. Carlin mixing pan.  The clay used as a bond for the silicious ore of the lining is delivered by  similar means into the pan which  automatically discharges the mixed  product, ready for tamping, in front  of the converter shell. (Illustration  No. 2 shows the shell in the re-lining  stand at the ieft of the picture).  ' Tne blast for the conyerters is furnished by a Nordberg blowing engine  with cylinder 40 in. diameter and 42 in.  stroke (see illustration No. 3) having a  capacity of 5,000 cubic feet of air per  minute, at 12 lbs. pressure. This  compresser is operated by a rope drive  the fly-wheel being 18 ft. in diameter  and power furnished by a 300-h. p.  variable speed motor, operating at  2,000 volts.  A bnquetting plant, of a capacity of  100 tons per day, is to be at once installed to handle flue dust and concentrates. This will- consist of a  mould briquetiing press with lime  slackers, mixers and conveyor belt,  the flue dust being automically fed  from a bucket elevator. This plant  will be operated by a 40-h. p. induction  motor.  Prior to the installation of the above  described Bessemerizing plant the copper matte producted at this smelter  had to be sent elsewhere to be converted into blister copper. Now this work  is done on the spot, and in making  provision for it the B. C. Copper Company has advanced another stage in  the progressive policy it is steadily  pursuing. The total tonnage of ore  treated at this smelter during the three  years and a half it has been in operation is in excess of 5000,000 tons. 'Mr.  McAllister has been in charge since  the early part of last year, after haying been for some time assistant superintendent . at the Tennessee Copper  Company's smelter at Copperhill,  Tennessee, U. S. A., and his modern  and economical metallurgical practice  has been the chief factor in making  the smelting works a commercial success."  LIBELLING  THE COURTS  Chicago Capitalist Credited  in Butte Paper With  C. P. R. OFFICIALS  Greenwood was visited this week by  prominent C. P. R. officials. The  party was headed by Robt. Kerr  general passenger agent and with him  were W. R. Mclnnes chief of the  fre ight department, -F.-W. Peters,-assistant chief E. J. Coyle who has  charge of the passenger department in  the west, J. S. Carter passenger agent  at Nelson, and Harry McDonnell of  the freight department at the same  place. They travelled in Mr. Kerr's  private car and went to Midway on'ithe  regular passenger train. They visited  the smelters at Boundary Falls and  Greenwood and spent the night here,  leaving in , the morning by rigs: for  Phoenix and Grand Fork&. The visit  has no particular significance as the  chief officials of the big road.always  come west once a year.  ELECTIONS THIS FALL  Mr. W. A. Galliher, M. P., of Nel  son, was in Toronto recently, and  while there "Big Bill Galliher, as he  is popu'.arly known in his constituency  gave the Telegram his views as to the  date of the elections. Here is the interview rs published in the Telegram :  "No, the Dominion elections have  not been fixed, but they're as sure as  if they had They'll take place this  fall without fail," said Mr. W. A  Galliher, Liberal \, Nelson, B. C,  Xo a Telegrarr    'p.esentative.  'Any changes likely  to  be  in   the  cabinet?"  "None that I know of."  "You noticed the report about Mr.  Ainsworth?"  "Yes, but I'd place no credence in  that."  "What about G. P. Graham of Brock-  ville?"  "What place is there for him in the  cabinet? If any new blood is to be introduced introduced introduced into  the cabinet, British Columbia must  get the first chance. Just now it has  only a minister without portfolio."  Regarding The   Bench���The Providence Case.  A Butte newspaper to hand contains  the following:  "While up in Canada the other day  I saw a specimen of British justice,"  said M. S. Hyland, of Chicago, at the  Thornton today. "The manager of a.  mining company was prosecuting a  clerk for'padding the payrolls, and the  evidence was so conclusive that there  could not be any doubt of the man's  guilt and the flagrancy of the theft of  the company's money. Lord Somebody, who occupied the bench, when  asked for judgment, remarked: "This  case is so palpably bad, the crime is  so plainly evident, that I cannot believe it possible for any man in his  right senses to commit such an outrage I cannot conceive how a man  could do so rank an injustice against  the laws of Canada, and I must give  him the. benifit of the doubt . and believe that he was not responsible for  Hi's conduct. i:The prisoner is therefore discharged.'....  "Another instance I ��� noticed. An  American was obliged to give a surety bond in the sum of $i0,000. He secured the bond from a reliable surety  and bonding company in the United  States. His lordship wanted to know  if he could not" just: as well have secured a bond in Canada. The American thought he could, : but the rates  were more reasonable in Uncle Sam's  domain, 'Well' drawled the lord, ,1  will continue this matter for a week,  and in the meantime see if you can't  get a bond in Canada.' I guess those  Canadians don't know how to plug for  one another."  . The Mr. Hyland mentioned was  here a shqrt time ago and the state-  -ments alleged.to-have^been-..made.iD.Yi..  him doubtless refer to the application  for an injunction against directors of  the Providence Mining company. The  merits of the application nor the reasons for the making, need not be discussed here but Mr. Hyland's strictures  on British Justice should not pass unchallenged. The statements with  which he is credited are so outrageously untruthful, that one is slow to believe that a business man���even a  Chicago business man���would be guilty  of libelling the judiciary of a neighboring and friendly country. It is  more likely to be the pipe dream of an  irresponsible newspaper reporter.  Of course assailing the bench is a  popular pastime in the Republic to the  south and lynch law is almost the rule  there now, not the exception There  is not th; same high high regard for  the bench nor the law that exists on  this side of the line. It may be possible then that Mr. Hyland intimancy  with Chicago courts has led him into  making statements regarding the  courti here that are in no way warranted by the'facts.  The incidents said to have been  quoted by Mr. Hyland never took  place in a British Court. Nor were  the statement with which "Lord Somebody ' who occupied the bench," is  credited ever   uttered.  There is. the thing of which Canadians are justly pound and that is the  integrity and incorruptibility of their  bench and the people of this country  are not slow to resent wild malicious  reflections made by irresponsible men  for the other side who have no respect  for their own judiciary and evidently  none for that of a country who is more  j blessed in matters of this kind than  j the boasted land- of Liberty.  j    The Star  Bakery  for  pastry that's  ' good. boundary creek times.

John Houston is full of good  ideas. In discussing the recent  attempt of the provincial government to collect from the Granby  anc Le Roi company alleged arrears of taxes, he says in the  Tribune:  "The question mine and smelter taxation came up in Rossland  ��� And now Phoenix finds it  uecessary in the public interests  to make the town less open.

Both claim  that to the cost of smelting-  should be added a reasonable  smelting profit and a reasonable  sum for depreciation of plant.'  While not combattiug- these contentions, The Tribune maintains  that no deductions should be allowed mining companies for any  expenses incurred outside of  British Columbia; but that all  expenses incurred in British Columbia should be deducted from  the value of ore and the mineral  tax pair! on the value after such  deductions were made."  <UNION  FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER 9, 1904  RESIDENT SUPREME COURT  JUDGE.  Now that Mr. Justice Drake  has retired from the supreme  court bench and his successor is  shortly to be appointed, the time  is opportune to direct attention  to the desirability of having a  resident supreme court judge in  the interior. A great deal of the  litigation with which the supreme  court has to deal originates in the  interior and there is no good  reason why litigants should be  compelled to bear the additional  expense occassioned by the fact  that all judges of the supreme  court reside at the coast.  The Myers Creek News is now  edited by a lady in the person of  a Miss Georgie E; Blaine. The  change of editors has not detracted from the merits of the  paper. However Miss Blaine  like a sensible woman has taken  a partner in the enterprise and  he is a man. After .all even a  newspaper cannot be conducted  without one of the sterner sex.  these properties with Smith-Curtis and  others.  While not expressing any opinion in  rpg-aird to Highland Valley, having  first to report to the principals, he  admits that the expenditure to prove  the values would be light. The visit  of Mr. Willaims is of considerable  importance to the mining interests of  Ashcraft, as his reputation is so  thoroughly good thoughout British  Columbia and the mining states to the  south, that his opinion will carry  weight.  Mr. Sussam is the representative of  the American Metallurgical Company,  one of the largest dealers in copper in  the United States. He ;ook several  specimens of ore with him to Spokane,  which he selected from various parts  of the Highland Valley properties.  BR MATHISON.

At noon today one of the Boundary  district's pioneers passed away in the  person of Adolphus Ferguson. Mr.  Ferguson was taken ill at his home a  few days ago and was ordered to the  hospital by his medical adviser. The  immediate cause of death was heart  disease.  "Fungus" as he was popularly called  was born in Kent, England, about 62  years ago. While still a young man  he went to Shanghai, China, and engaged in the silk trade amassing a  fortune. He returned to England  where he met with financial reverses  xnd aftermards went back to China.  About sixteen years ago he came to  this province settling in New Westminster where he engaged in the dairy  business. He lost everything in the  Fraser river floods of 1894, and came to  the Boundary in 1896. He engaged in  mining until about three years ago  when he started the market garden at  the northern end of the city.  Mr. Ferguson was a splendid type of  the English gentleman. In appearance he was an exact replica of John  Bull and the striking similarity was  commented on wherever he went.  Generous to a fault and of a particularly sunny disposition he left many  friends but no enemies.  Mr. Patterson his partner is making  arrangements for I he funeral which  will take place tomorrow afternoon  from Gulley's undertaking parlors at  3:00 p. m.  Wise and  Otherwise  Pat. Kennedy who has valuable  mining interests on the West Fork  has returned to the city after a year's  work on his properties.  The railway Commission held a sitting at Nelson yesterday.  Mrs. J. W.

Yolen Williams, until recently  superintendent of the Granby mines,  believes in the Similkameen. He  recently made a trip through the district and in an interview in the Spokesman-Review he predicts a great future  as soon as transportation facilities are  secured- He said in part:  . "The Similkameen country in southern British Columbia looks to me like  a mining district of great promise.  The district has long been known for  its gold and copper, and now the prospectors are excited over a silver lead  camp which they think will make a  second Slocan. It is on the summit of  the trail between Princeton and Hope,  B. C. I wanted to see it, but I was  deterred by the advice of the natives,  who told me that the rain then prevailing in the valleys would probably  prove to be snow on the summits, and  the trip promised to be a hazardous  one.  "I went into the country by way of  Kamloops on the Candian Pacific railway, whence a stage runs weekly for  130 miles down into the Princeton  country. The roads are the finest  mountain highways I have ever seen  and the trip isa delightful one. It is  a paradise for wood, water, grass,  game and fish, and the mineral ottt-  cops are beauHf il.  The propectors do muck of their  work with the aid of a compass.  When the prospector strikes it good  Diitcrop and determines its strike, he  takes his bearin s rind travels on foot  a quarter of a mile, confident that he  will get the lode there with a little  snrface work. The undergrowth and  the timber are pretty heavy, and the  prospectors need a compass, too, in  getting back to camp.  "The Morning Glory group, in  which I am interested with three  others, is on Otter flat, about 18 miles  front Prirceton. It was staked four  years ago, and we have not clone much  work. However, we have a fine showing nf chalcopyrite with &old aud silver, which give assays around S50.  "At Nicola I found the people confident of Having a gr^at"c6arcamp,a"nd  they were using their own coal for  domestic purposes and for smithing.  "The people generally in the Similkameen are discouraged ever the delay  of the railway to run a road through  the district. The camps can do noth-  iag without transportation, and many  of the prosbectors are getting disheartened by the interminable wait.  "The Nickle Plate mine at Hedley,  B. C, which is controlled by the  Rogers interests, is running its 40  stamp mill, and should have a gre.it  future."  SIR THOMAS IS COMING  There is reason to oeleive that Sir  Tomas Shaughnessy, president of the  Canadian Pacific Railway company,  will take a trip through the west in  the near future, and a number of the  principal directors of the company wil  probably accompany him.  It is some time since Sir Thomas  visited the Kootenays. but the industrial progress of the last eighteen  months, of which he is fully aware,  demands a personal inspection of the  district.  II is said that the party will visit  every western branch of the vast  system, and that impertant developments of great general interest are  certain to follow.���Rossland Miner.  MINERAL ACT.

Bratinan   of    Chicago,   who  , visited this district  a  short time  ago  has given out the following interview:  "I am deeply impressed with the extensive   development  that   has   taken  place  in  Greenwood  camp  since   my  "last trip west a year ago.     Public  attention   was  then  almost  exclusively  devoted   to  the Providence  mine, the  ���first property to demonstrate  the high  grade fissure veins on  both sides of  Boundary creek.    A large  portion  of  the dividends  regularly  dispersed  by  the Providence go to Chicago  investors. ' The Providence is looking better  than ever.    Although a depth of only  300   feet   has   been   reached   the   ore  reserves'are estimated at over $125,000.  This  is  a' good showing when   it   is  ��� realized that 60 per cent of the pur  chase price has been paid for out of  the profits, exclusive of dividends'  earned since, the incorporation of the  ���company was affected. A new compressor plant was ordered from Chicago a month ago,  . "The Elkhorn during the past year  has also demonstrated the possibilities  of the camp by paying hundsome dividends every three months. Other  high grade properties in the same  camp are being developed and give  promise in the near future of rivalling  the older mines. I refer especially to  ���the-13.'P. U. and the Helen, both of  which,  obtained    substantial   returns  . from  recent shipments to   the   Trail  ' smelter. The Helen may yet prove to  be the bonanza mine of the Greenwood  camp.. It has a lead averaging ten  inches wide and the ore varies from  $150 to $200 per ton, 90 per cent of the  value being gold.   In  the  Providence  ��� and Elkhorn, located in the north belt,  ��� the silver values on the other hand,  predominate. I went through the  workings of the. Helen, whose ore  reserves are estimated at $75,000. This  forms a good object lesson of the profits in the Greenwood high grade belt,  as the Helen was a mere prospect six  months ago.  "I am   interested   in   the   Barbara,  which is separated from the Helen   by  , only one claim. As a member of the  Chicago syndicate which purchase I  the Barbara some months agd,T shall  have an encouraging report to make to  my colleagues on my return to Chicago.. The plan of development has  been'intelligently carried out.     At the  ��� 90 foot level the showing at the bottom of the shaft is simply magnificent.  '���' The vein is from 15 to 18 inches widej  " and recently the values have increas-  �� ed from $55 to $75 per ton. .

I also visited the Strathmore  and Defiance, which are destined to become steady shippers.  "After-leaving Gieenwood I inspected   the   Betts   and    Hesperus   group,  situated   on   Hardy     mountain,   four  miles from the Granby smelter. These  properties  are   controlled by Chicago  capitalists, the principal shareholders  being Charles J. Magee, John  Clancy,  W. W, Bishop, W. M. Thornton, M. S.  Mosler and T.  H.  Rae.    A large ore  body  has been opened up   since my  last   visit.      A   phenomenal    surface  showing has also been opened  up disclosing 30 feet of solid gold-copper ore.  The group can be worked as a  surface  quarry    as   well   as   by   tunnels and  shafts.   A compressor plant will be installed  this  fall  and T.  H.  Rae, the  general manager states that  ore shipments to the Granby  smelter will  be  started   with   the   completion   of   the  Phoenix branch of the Great Northern  early in January.    The main ore body  is  over 25  feet  in  width and several  crosscuts veins will  be  cut later at a  depth of over 200 feet.    The values are  about $12 in copper, gold and silver per  ton.   I am a large shareholder  in  the  company and am well pleased with my  investment."  quite exceptional opportunities of  gathering material for the vivid  sketches with which he has enriched  western literature.

There is now in the press of William  Briggs, Toronto, a  volume  of  unique  interest, a selection from a remarkable  series of   reminiscent   sketches contributed to the press by the   Hon.   D.  W. Higgins of Victoria,  late   Speaker  of the Legislature of.British Columbia.  The   interest   excited by  the stories  while running serially  was so  spontaneous and so widepread that publicat-  ' ion in permanent form become a necessity to meet the demand from all quarters;   Morgan^ in "Canadian -Men and  Wemen of the Times," states that Mr.  Higgins, who  is. a   native   of   Nova  Scotia, went to California in 1856, and  founded The San   Francisco Morning  Call, which he published until his removed   to  British   Colurebia in  1858,  where  he   founded,  in   Victoria,  The  Morning Chronicle,  which was  afterwards amlgamated with The  Victoria  Colonist.    He   continued    to edit  the  latter paper until  1880,   when   he sold  out to engage in other   interests.    For  nine years he presidad as Speaker over  the Provincial Legislature and  served  his city a.nd Province in various other  capacities.     Entering    the    Province  while it was yet in   the Hudson's  Bay  Company's  hands,  Mr.   Higgins  has  been closely identified with   the social  industrial and political   changes  that  have    since   occurred.
