 I>      I'*  >*  s*  ,��� v  ��>  00  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12   1902.  P'  O.  3.  Four of the Party Visit the  Boundary Towns and Mines  DELIGHTED IH11!  Claim That This is Most Interesting  Part of Dominion.  British editors have com* and gone  and the Boundary district still remains.  They were offered.everything in sight  but with that innate modesty which is  characteristic of all newspaper men  they took nothing away save the impression that they had seen one of the  . greatest mining- districts in the world.  Only four came here, but surely the  flower of Mr. Preston's flock, as it was  scarcely possible to( get twelve men as  entertaining, as wholesouled and as  enthusiastic about British Columbia  as the four who came :here. And they  represented big- papers too. There was  E. G. Le Sage of the London Telegraph, a paper credited with having  the largest circulation in the world;  James Lumsden of the Leeds Mercury, one of the best of those provincial papers that wield a powerful influence in the big industrial centres of  England;- James Proudfoot of the  Glasgow Herald, with the largest circulation In Scotland, and J. M. Howe  right from the Highlands and proud to  be connected with the chief Highland  paper.the Highland News of Inverness.  The big. four, wer.e met at Robson.by  Mayor Holland andE.'A. Manly of  Grand Forks. Unfortunately Wednesday's train in which they came to the  Boundary was an hour late, thus somewhat disarranging the plans for seeing the Boundary. They were shown  the Granby smelter and the Kettle  River valley by the Grand Forks committee. They were met at Grand  Forks by the acting mayor of Greenwood who accompanied them on a  special train' to this city. They did  not reach here until seven o'clock in  the evening, instead of 5 o'clock as was  expected���too late to be shown any of  the"mine-*"^ Several^roTninentcitiMirs"  met them at the Hotel Armstrong and  the evening was spent very pleasantly.  Mayor Kumberger of Phoenix ��� and  Anthony J. McMillan, managing-director of the Snowshoe mine, came  down to assist in entertaining the  visitors.  The visitors were unanimous in expressing regrets that the trip through  the mining districts was so hurried  that the whole party could not visit  all camps. The people of Canada were  so hospitable and there was so much to  see in this great country that it was so  easy to speijd time at various points  and so difficult to get away. The inevitable result followed. They found  themselves wtihout sufficient time to  do justice to what they easily saw was  the most important and most interesting part of the Dominion, No one  could come here without being impressed with the boundless mineral  resources, the glorious climate and the  energy and hospitality of the people.  Mr. Lumsden and the other newspaper  men gave every assurance however,  that although few in number, the  Boundary would not suffer, their enthusiasm would overflow to the other  members of the party. Their constituents would know the truth about the  wonderful district and they would do  everything in their power to remove  any prejudices which might exist.  Naturally enough three out of the four  British editors were enthusiastic Scotsmen. AH save Mr. Le Sage came from  .the land of the heather and he said  that he felt like calling himself Mc-  Sage and registering from Aberdeen.  Although from the greatest city in the  world he had made a hunt through  Canada for a Londoner but was unable  to find one���they were all Scotch.  Eloquent  speeches,   song   and   story  the visitors at the end voted their informal entertainment at Greenwood  the most pleasant of the numerous  similar gatherings since their trip  began.  Thursday morning Paul Johnson  took the visitors in charge and showed  them the Greenwood smelter. Every  portion was inspected and Mr. Johnson fully explained to them how ore  could be treated here cheaper than any  other place in the world and how a furnace could treat more" ore here than  any other place in the world. Lack of  time- precluded a visit to the Mother  Lode and Sunset but the editors were  told that the ore deposits were similar  to those of the Knob Hill and Ironsides  which they would see later in the day.  Mayor Rumberger and Mr. McMillan  then took charge of the party. They  were taken up the steep mountain road  in a four horse stage���a novelty which  they greatly enjoyed. Two hours were  spent underground at the Knob Hill  and old Ironsides under the guidance  of W, Yolen Williams and Mr. Woos-  ter.| Acres of ore, miles of tunnels  and drifts and the big glory holes were  seen.  Tired, hungry but enthusiastic,  the visitors then went to the  Snowshoe, where they had been invited to luncheon by Mr, George S.  Waterlow, chairman of the board of  directors of the Snowshoe Gold and  oopper mines, Limited. Mr. La Sage  found his Londoner and he and the  the other members of the party were  the guest of a gentlemen whose home  is in London but who dispensed hospitality with a lavish hand in the wilds  of British Columbia. Here they found  at least one British capitalist who had  plenty of faith in the mineral resources  of this province. In addition to the  visitors, Mr. Waterloo had as his guest  several local gentlemen who enjoyed  his hospitality as much as the newspaper men. In welcomining the guests  Mr. Waterloo gave an address whose  force and eloquence was sure to make  an impressioa.onthe-visitors., Hereto-?,  fore they met British Columbians  eager to defend their country against  the criticisms of capital in the mother  country but here they found an English investor in a convincing way  breaking down the barriers that had  been built up against investments in  this province. Mr; McMillan and Dr.  Jones also delivered interesting addresses and Mr. La Sage and Mr.  Lumsden in their replies eloquently  confessed that they had fallen in love  with the Boundary. It was strange  but true, that the farther they went  the more were they impressed with the  wonderful resources of Canada.  The C. P. R. courteously held the  train at the Snowshoe for half an hour  or so as not to.hurry the visitors away.  After luncheon Mr. Waterlow who is  an ardent photographer took several  views of the group. As they left for  Nelson the visitors again expressed  their pleasure at visiting- the Boundary. They would tell their brother  journalists that they missed seeing the  most interesting part of Canada. The  visitors were given three cheers and  Auld Lang Syne brought the brief but  pleasant Boundary visit to a close.  The party met at Nelson Thursday  evening and from there they went  through to Winnipeg.  Mr. Curtis Was Here  B. C.'s Cabinet Representative Visits Greenwood.  They  Are   Gathering   Information  About Mining- Districts.  Hon. Senator Templetnan the British  representative in the Dominion cabinet  and Aulay Morrison, M. P., for New  Westminister district, arrived in  Greenwood from Grand Forks by Monday's train and spent until Tuesday  afternoon in visiting the various mines  and smelters in the district. ' The tour  was not a political one. Senator Temp-  leman felt that it was his duty as a  minister of the crown to make himself acquainted with the resources and  requirements from a federal standpoint  of the great mining interior. He  visited the Boundary with Hon. Mr.  Sifton previous to the election of 1900  but that visit was a hurried one and  afforded no opportunity of' seeing the  mines. He invited Mr. Morrison to  accompany him on this trip and he as  well as the Senator are simply discovering the best portion of the province which they represent so worthily  at Ottawa.  Is Coming* Back to Hold Public Meetings.  Smith Curtis, M. P. P.. paid Greenwood and Phoenix a hurried visit this  week. He was anxious to meet Senator Templeman in the Boundary so  tnat he might be able to call the  the Senator's attention to certain needs  of this portion of his constituency. He  joined the Senator and Mr. Morrison  at Grand Forks and came through  with them lo Greenwood, leaving with  them for Rossland on Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Curtis is just as aggressive  as ever, but he hadn't time to talk  provincial politics on this hurried  visit. He is coming back however and  will hold public meetings at Grand  Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix. He  will give an account of his stewardship during the trying sessions in the  legislature. He was elected a supporter  of Joseph Martin's and like Mr. Smith  of East Kootenay he followed the  stormy petrel as long as he could  find  passed the evening very  quickly  and him,  "I regret I didn't give myself more  time to make this trip" said Senator  Templeman to a Times representative.  "One could spend weeks in this great  mining country of yours and still find  new evidences of British Columbia's  natural wealth. I would like to spend  two weeks in the Boundary but Mr.  Morrison and myself must return to  the coast by the 15th. But I am coming again. I am going to enjoy a  vacation in this district. I want to  see more ot your big properties and  drink in more of this glorious invigorating air you have on these hills. You  have a great district. It makes a man  take a greater pride in this province  and makes him more eager to assist in  every possible way its development  from Ottawa and to make fresh efforts  in assisting to disentangle the awful  muddle into which provincial affairs  have fallen."  Monday afternoon the distinguished  visitors were driven to the Mother  Lode mine where they were joined by  Frederic Keffer the general superintendent of the B. C. Copper company.  Notwithstanding Senator Temple-  man's 220 odd pounds avordipois and  the fact that he is no longer as young  as he used to be, he climbed the steep  hill right to the summit and saw the  numerous glory holes in that mountain  of ore. He and Mr. Morrison were  seeing a big Boundary mine for the  first time and no amount of literature  descriptive of the property could be  equal to that personal inspection.  Afterwards the Sunset mine and the  smelter were visited.  In the evening Senator Templeman  and Mr. Morrison met several local  liberals and discussed with them the  requirements of the district. The  meeting was an informal one but  several matters of importance were  discussed. J. R. Brown president of  the Greenwood Liberal association occupied the chair. la a graceful way  he expressed the gratification of local  liberals at the appointment of Senator  Templeman to the Dominion cabinet  and cordially welcomed him and Mr,  Morrison to the district.  In the matter of requirements, it was  pointed out that the revenue of the  post office, customs and inland  revenue, fully warranted the erection  of a federal building in the city. Both  visitors were urged to use their good  offices in removing any obstruction to  building of competitive railways in  the district and the importance of sec-  using a better mail service with the  district west of Greenwood was pointed  out.  Hon. Senator Templeman expressed  his pleasure at meeting the members  of the liberal party in Greenwood. He  was anxious to do everything in his  power to assist in the development of  this great country. He wished them  to understand that he was not committing the Dominion government. He  could not if he wished to do so. All he  could do was to voice his opinions at  executive meetings. He. believed that  Federal buildings should be built in  all cities and towns where the revenue  justified such -an] expenditure. The  revenue from the post office, customs  and inland revenue at Greenwood was  so large that it would be good business  for the Dominion government to erect  a substantial building here. The same  was true at Grand Forks. In reference to railways he would frankly  confess that he did not fully appreciate the sitaation until this visit. He  had always been in favor of allowing  the greatest possible freedom to those  anxious to build railways in this country. . Anyone ready to build a railway  anywhere should be encouraged not  obstructed. If ; railways could not be  secured without subsidies he was in  favor of granting subsidies. He did  not mean by this that every shyster  and charter monger who goes down to  Ottawa should be encouraged, but he  realized that the very cheapest transportation was necessary in the development of these low grade  The Great Northern or any  wishing to come in here  subsidy should be offered  sible encouragement and  structed.  He also realized how necessary it  was to assist in the opening up of new  mining dis^ict^.,^Sir WilHam..Mulock,1  thr postmaster-general had done great  work in his department and he felt  that when his attention was called to  the postal requirements of the promising district west, needed improvements would be mlade. In the absence  of railways, the post office department  could encourage easier means of communication in new districts and he  would have great pleasure in calling  Sir William Mulock's attention to the  urgent need for a better service from  Greenwood to Similkameen. His visit  was not a political one. He represented them in the cabinet and in the  Senate and it was his duty to make  himself acquainted with the requirements of every portion of the province.  He was glad to meet political friends  and he oould assure them that any representations made to him not only by  them but also by political opponents  would have his careful attention. He  was anxious to do something for  British Columbia and was always  ready to receive suggestions.  Mr. Morrison comes from New  Westminister where they have great  fisheries and rich farms bnt in a neat  speech he made it plain tnat he is no  narrow sectional representative but is  always ready to help the mining districts as well. He was particularly    anxious   to  do   something  for Greenwood as he round here many  old time coast friends.  Smith Curtis, M. P. P. and several  local liberals made brief addresses.  Tuesday morning the patty left for  Phoenix where W. Yolen Williams,  Mayor Rumberger and Thos. Hardy  showed them miles of underground  workings, also the big glor3' holes from  which thousands of tons a day are  shipped. After luncheon the Snowshoe  was visited and the mining situation  discussed with Mr. Waterlow, Dr.  Jones and Mr. McMillan. The visitors left on the afternoon train for  Rossland. They intend visiting  Nelson and the Slocan before returning to the coast,  A Syndicate Acquires The  Entire Property.  properties,  other line  without a  every pos-  not    ob-  Duncan Mcintosh Takes Charge of The  Property For New Owners.  A deal was consumated this week  under whbh William Fowler sells his  entire interest in the Providence mine  to those who recently acquired an interest in the property and some new  associates. As was announced in the  Times last week Duncan Mcintosh  and W. M. Law recently visited Spokane with a view to interesting financial  friends in the Providence. They were  successful and this week Mr. Fowler  relinquished his control and interest  in the property. The deal was made ��  on a basis of $50,000, Mr. Fowler re- t  ceiving $12,500 cash and the other payments are to be made within a year.  Duncan Mcintosh has been appointed  manager for the new syndicate and he  took charge of the Providence on Tuesday evening* He has two shifts at  work and regular shipments of ore will  be sent from the property.  Recently a cheque of $6,367.51 was  received from the Trail smelter being  the net proceeds from 43^ tons of ore.  It is now about nine months since  Mr. Fowler, an old timer, returned to  his first love, Providence camp. He -  secured a lease and working bond on  the Providence, a claim which since'  the time of its location, he always be  lieved would make a valuable mine.  He worked along confident that his  opinion was not in error. A sufficiently  promising showing was made to induce W. M. Law, J. A. Russell, J. J.  Caulfield and W. Macey to take an interest in the properly and the big  cheque from the Trail smelter is the  first proof that their investment was  an exceptionally good one.  Mr. Fowler did a large amount ot  work preparatory to steady shipments.  On the brow of the hill is a shaft down  g5 feet and in ore. -One^hundred^feet"-  lower down is another shaft 60 feet'  deep and in ore. At a'distance of 155  feet from this second shaft a tunnel  was begun into the hill. This tunnel  will tap No. 2 shaft at 60 foot level and  No. 1 at 100 feet. This tunnel is also  in ore. The hill has been stripped  from the collar of the first shaft to the  mouth of the tunnel and the ledge exposed the entire distance. From this  tunnel large quantities of ore can be  shipped. ,  Values as high as $40,000 to the ton  can be seenred at the Providence. In  the No. 2 shaft particularly, ore of exceptionally high value can be found.  The satisfactory smelter returns have  not only been gratifying to the owners  of the Providence but have also encouraged those leasing other high grade  properties in the vicinity.  Mr. Mcintosh the new superintendent of the Providence was one of the  original owners in the Winnipeg mine.  After the organization of the Winnipeg company he had charge of the  property until he sold out his shares at  a large figure. Since then he has been  largely interested in Greenwood and  is president, of the Russell-La w-Caul-  field company. He is an experienced  and successful mining man who with  the large financial backing of the new  syndicate is sure to have his usual  good luck in exploiting the Providence.

P.,'to the*  Boundary district  is sure to do good.  Senator  Templeman   is  a  member of  the  Dominion  cabinet  without a port  folio it is true,   but  that defect will be  remedied at a very  early  date.    He  is  sure to be given an important  department,   probably   that   of   Marine and  Fisheries.    Although he seldom  visited the  interior of this province, as a  newspaper man, he   has    doue   good  service in making known its resources  and endeavoring  to get  the province  opened up.     That he occupies the prominent  position  he does today  is because of his good service for the people.  Beginning life at the  printer's case he  has  been   in   turn,  printer,  reporter,  editor,   managing editor,  senator and  cabinet minister.     He never got out of  touch   with   the people and  today his  newspaper is. as  vigorous  in  the defence of the  people's rights as it was  when the senator did not hold so prominent a position.    He is just the kind  of man who will do things  for British  ,  Columbia  and  he is taking  the best  means of making  himself acquainted  with its requirements. The best friends  ��� of British  Columbia are    those   who  know  most about  its  magnificent resources.     There  is  a splendid opportunity for a big man   in- this province  and we feel sure that within u  reasonably short time, the province  will  feel  the beneficent influence of Hon. Senator    Templeman    in    the   Dominion  cabinet.  Mr. Aulay Morrison is one of the  rising young members of the Dominion parliament. He was lirst returned  by New Westminister in 1890 and his  big majority in 1900 was the best evidence that| his constituent appreciated his splendid services in the Dominion house. A clever speaker, a hard  worker and popular with all classes,  Mr. Morrison has a bright future before him.  Other members should follow the example set by the distinguished visitors  and make themselves thoroughly acquainted with this province. Its interests are so varied and resources so  diversified that a personal visit alone  can give one a proper conception of  his duty in assisting towards making  it what it ought to be the richest and  most populous province in the Dominion.  I  I sentative   newspaper   men    of   Great  Britain. The paper which they represent reaches every resident of Great  Britain. There are millions of people  in the mother country who are anxious  to get into closer touch with this coun  try either a settlers or investors. We  need both. The chief weakness in  this country is lack of population. Its  greatness must necessarily depend  upon the character of its people and  no better settlers could be secured than  the readers of the great- British newspapers. And we need capital to develop our great natural resources. It  would be idle to suppose however that  the British editors came out here to  boost individuals properties and to rec-  commend particular investments to  their readers. The people of Canada  have a duty to perforin particularly  those of British Columbia. It is not  sufficient to say "See what great mines  we have. Pay us a big sum for them  and we will let you develop them."  The shortest way to get capital is to do  something. The best friends of this  country are those who are engaged in  developing its resources." The best  advertisement is riot a rich undeveloped  claim but a working and producing  mine. TheBritish editors saw nothing  more convincing that the local smelters treating great quatities ore and  local mines employing a large number  of men and shipping large quantities  of ore daily. Had there been no mines  nor smelters Hierc would be no good  reason why th<=y should come here.  Work at home is needed as well as agitation abroad.  The   choice  of  newspaper men was  happily   made.    The  men  who   came  here were those who came in no critical  frame of mind but those ready to see  the best in the colonies. They were men  who realized that in order to strengthen  the bands of empire there must be  closer relation between ������he mother  country and her colonies. They came,  they saw and were conquered. They  will have something to tell their readers thatis sure to redouned to the advantage of Canada.  It is gratifying to know that from  Halifax to Victoria they were received  in the popular spirit. Every effort  was made to make their tour pleasant.  They were men who deserved good  treatment and they got what they deserved.  Strong criticism has been directed  against some of the methods of the  immigration department and the results  in the shape of undesirable immigrants, but no fault has been found  with the tour of British newspaper  men and it is hoped that they are only  the van guard of others who will come  here and go back to tell their readers  the truth   about  this  country.  So far as the mining district is concerned, the visit is sure to result in  in good. British Columbia has enough [  sins to answer for without being  shouldered with the mistakes of the  British investors themselves. The  British newspaper men will go home  and tell, their readers that the Whit-  taker Wrights and the wild catters are  not a British Columbia product; that  they are produced in London; that  there is here a large field for legitimate investment and that by the exercise of business judgement and ordinary common sense returns will be  safe and sure and as large as in any  other  country  in  the   world.  -0-CH>0<X>-00<>-->0-00<>0<^^  Established 1836.

Covert of Grand -Prairie was  in the city this week arranging a market for a portion of his great crop of  prunes. Mr. Covert by the exercise of  sound judgment and by industry and  preservance has built up one of the  best orchards in the province. His  success as a fruit grower and the  beauty of his place has made the  Kettle River Valley famous. To a  Times representative Mr. Covert stated that there was an abundant yield  this year. This is particularly true of  prunes. He will have 35 to 40 tons  from eight acres, sufficient to more  than supply the entire Boundary creek  country. His prunes will not be on  the market until early in October and  in this connection he wished to state  that housekeepers and others desiring  prunes for drying, pickling or preserving would do well to wait for the  home grown product. American prunes  for a distant market are picked green  and allowed to ripen in transit. They  reach the markets earlier but the  flavor is destroyed. Mr. Covert wishes  to sell his locally and if people will  exercise a little patience they can get  better fruit at a much lower price. Mr.  Covert will announce through the  Times when his prunes are ready so  that good housewives and others can  get a full supply.  MINERAL ACT ~  Certificate of Improvements.  NOTICE.

Last week's article in reference to  advertising was written in no censorious, spirit. No o,n.ev appreciates more  than we do the difficulties which meet  business men in* dull times and the  necessity for economy in different  way*. But^ail*} men in their own interests as well, as in the interests of the  community in which they live have  certain duties to perform. A young  and growing town need people, No  community can b*�� great or prosperous  without a full complement of citizens.  People cannot be induced to come here  without some encouragement. The  character and stability of a town is  reflected by its local newspaper. That  newspaper is as good as the support it  receives. It is the medium through  which the outside world is told the progress and the development of the city  and district in whicn it is published.  The amount expended on a newspaper  is not a charitable contribution but a  necessary expehditute just���as���it- is  necessary to. pay taxes-in'- order-that  the town may have good streets, good  sidewalks and efficients-police and fire  protection. In that sense a newspaper  is a public not a private' enterprise,  that should be. maintained .by the  public and not by a private individual.  Neither one man nor a set of men can  be expected to run a newspaper from a  purely patriotic spirit. -All that can  be expected of him or .them is to publish as good a paper:as its patronage  warrants   It is therefore the public duty ot all  business men to advertise in the local  paper if nothing-.:more than a card  stating the'-business they are in and  where they may be found. This week  three oT Greenwood's business men  who heretofore were non-advertisersior  intermittent advertisers have arranged  to carry permanent advertisements in  the Times. From a public as well as  a selfish standpoint we wonld like to  see the' good work goon, so that the  Timas could be made a paper worthy  of Greenwood and worthy-'o'f "the great  future  that   is in  store v.for this city*.  The sage of New Denver has been  discussing the. same   Subject and  he  "*s*'  sizes up the*, .matter. J^ the following  words of .wisdom :.-. Generosity, begets  -generosity.--.The- merchant -who istoo  niggardly to support a newspaper with.  live ads. has himseif to blame when  the public give him frost.' A country  and its people are known by the ads. in  the local paper.  When, times are dull and people are  not advertising, is trfre very time that  advertising should be the heaviest.���  John "VVanamaker.   -'  '���'���    '*  Ninety-nine out of every hundred  merchants advertise most when there  is least; need of . it, .instead of looking  upon advertising as the panacea for  their business ills.--New England  Editor.  Kermeen two old time miners. The  figure is $10,000. There is a vein of  rich galena ore on the property.  Conservatives  Coming  At least three speakers belonging to  Hon.

Jacobs, the Boundary represent  ative of the New York. Engineering-  and Mining- Journal sent that paper  some figures regarding the phenomenal output of the Greenwood smelter.  William A. Heywood a Tennessee  smelter man wrote claiming better results at his smelter. This elicited the  following reply from Paul Johnson M.  E.  Sir: Allow me to add some explanatory information to supplemant the  bare figures as to tonnage of the Boundary smelters given by Mr. E. Jacobs  in the Engineering and Mining  Journal of July 5, following which Mr.  William Heywood, in your issue of July  "\ 26, gave some figures as to tonnage  and other information from the plant  of the Tennessee  Copper Company.  When one talks about "pheuomenal  furnace results" he should include  more than the tonnage pure and simple,  _^1.^^as,.this.idepends���,largely���,on -the si.se._of  the furnace and the proportions of  silica and iron in the slag made, for by  increasing the furnace in length and  putting as many slag spouts on the  - side as may be required, one can put  up a single furnace that will smelt say  2,000 tons of copper ores every 24 hours.  Such a furnace I would make four times  180 inches long and 48 inches wide,  aud would have five slag spouts on the  long  front   side.  In order to show the merits of one  smelting plant over another one has to  give more figures than those of bare  tonnage; among others, cleanness of  slag made and number of men employed per ton of charge smelted. In comparing work done as to tonnage of  furnaces of different sizes to determine whether one furnace has douc  more work than another, one figures  out the daily tonnage  per square  foot  ftftft��ft��ftftftftftft��ftft��������ncuj;ftftftft��njt  1 SCHOOL  I  * ��  ��  ���*  ��  ��  �����  �����  and supplies can be procured  at right prices at  | 3.

The Tennessee Company's furnaces  art* 56 by 180 inches at tuyeres, having thus a square area of 70square feet.  The British Columbia Copper Company's furnaces are 42 by ISO inches  at tuyeres, and have thus a square area  of 43.7 square feet. The tonnage given  for the British ColumbiacCopper Com*,  pany's furnace at Greenwood doas not  include slag, matte, or fine dust re-  smelted, but only ore. I would ask Mr-  Heywood whether in his charges he  includes, besides the daily average of  33 tons of easily-melted slags, matte  and fine dust  re-smelted.  Now take Mr, Heywood's daily average tonnage for ten months, which  he gives at 495 tons of charge, and  divide this by the number of square  feet of his furnace at tuyeres, which is  70, and you get a tonnage of 7 tons per  square foot furnace area in 24 hours.  Take the daily average which Mr.  Jacobs gives as 380.5 tons of ore with  a furnace area of 43.6 square feet, and  you get a tonnage of 8.7 tons per square  foot furnace area, or 24.3 per cent more  put through the square foot furnace  area than that of the Tennessee Co.'s  furnace.  Now take the highest tonnage month of  the Tennessee furnace, February, with  561 tons of charge daily; this gives 8.0  tbnsper square foot furnace area for  24 hourd. The highest tonnage months  given by Mr. Jacobs for the Greenwood  furnace is 428.6 tons for Janurry, which  giyes 9.8 tons of ore per square foot  furnace area, or 22.5 per cent more capacity per square foot furnace area than  that of the Tennessee  furnace.  Again take the highest run for a  single day of the Tennesee furnace,  which is 657 tons of charge, and which  --��iY*5��.__.r-L-���PBs^  area in 24 hours; then take the highest  single day for the Greenwood furnace,  which is 460 tons of ore, and which  gives 10.5 tons per square foot furnace  area for 24 hsurs, and here you have  11,7 per. cant more in the Greenwood  furnace results than in that of the Tennessee furnace.  Non-professional newspaper men always talk about the self-fluxing ores of  the Boundary country, but these ores  are only self-fluxing if you make them  so by mixing the different varieties,  and I will venture to say that if we  had as much iron in our ores as the  Tennessee Copper Company has in its,  I could show up a still larger tonnage.  With plenty of iron in the ore there is  no trouble to get tonnage. Ouu daily  slags have averaged for the last six  months 39.8 per cent silica. 23.6 per  cent iron, 19,6 per cent lime and 0.321  per cent copper. The daily mattes for  the same period have averaged 50.1 per  cent copper. The slags have not been  made for copper by a colometric slop  assay, but by carefnl determinations  th -��������� t will check to 0.01 per cent in copper. The last month's slag have  averaged 43 per cent Si02, 20.7 per  cent Fe, andl6.1 per cent CaO, which  is a much harder slag to run than a  high irony slag, which runs itself.  Some years ago it was considered good  work in copper smelting to get only 0.1  per cent of copper in the slag for each  10 per cent of copper in the matte; thus  if 20 per cent matte were made to have  0.2 per cent copper in the slag,  30 per cent matte, 0.3 per cent copper,  40 per cent matte 0.4 per cent copper,  50 per cent matte 0.5 per cent copper  in the slag, and so on. As already  mentioned, the average daily grade  of the matte produced at the Greenwood  smelter during the last six months has  been 50.1 per cent copper, and the corresponding slags 0.221, which gives  0.064 per cent copper in  the  slag for  every 10 per Cent copper in the matte.  I would, in the interests of the profession, ask Mr. Heywood what the  average grede. of his matte has been  during the last several months, and  what the corresponding average of his  slags has been in copper, silica, iron  and lime.  For several months the daily tonnage  of ore put through one furnace here  has been 422.5 tons, and the total number of men employed, including besides  those at blast furnace work proper,  sample mill crew, engineers, firemen,  blacksmith, mason, carpenters and  foremen, has ben 47,which gives a daily  average of 9 tons of ore handled to  every man employed. It would be  very interesting if Mr. Heywood  would give the average number of tons  of charge handled per every man employed at his plant. As for the blast  employed, I use for each furnace a No.  7>_ Connersville blower, which give  80 cubic feet of air for each revolution,  and averages 120 revolutions per  minute, showing an average furnace  pressure at the furnace of about 1.8  inch mercury or about 14.15 ounces.  The 7l/i Connersville blower requires  45 horse-power to run at this blast  pressure, and cost $1,600.00. At an  average of 422 tons smelted per day,  each ton of ore will thus require about  0.1 of one horse-power for blast. The  total amount of flue dust produced is  1 per cent of the ore smelted. Now it  is my opinion it is all right with a  blowing engine for iron blast furnaces,  or perhaps lead blast furnaces, when  you want 3 pounds pressure or more  for a high charge, but that is a waste  of first cost in the price of the blowing  machine, takes a higher cost in running, makes more flue dust, and it is  unneeesary to have blowing machines  for a copper furnace, especially when  you make an irony slag relatively low in  silica that will run fast anyhow. With  others in the profession I would be indebted to Mr. Heywood ff he would  state the first cost and what horsepower it takes to run the Tennessee  Company's blowing engines, giving  20-40 ounces of blast, and how much  flue dust he produces in percentage of  the charge smelted.  As to charging the furnaces by mechanical feeders in preference to feed?  ing by hand���I have my own opinion  on this question, gotten by actual experience in several places. If you have  lots of iron in your charge, the stuff  will dmelt as a rule any way yon dump  it in, but if your ore varies consid-:  erably aud is hard to smelt you generally get into trouble with mechanical  feeders. Having good hand feeders  who know their business, you can  always make cleaner slags, put more  through your furnaces, and keep them  in better shape. I know of one case  of hand feeding and mechanical feeding on the same kind of ores where  the hand feeding saves in cleaner slags  alone an average of 30 ceuts per ton of  ore, which putting through 350 tons per  day amounts to $105.00 per furnace per  day. Besides, when the ore comes up  in silica so-that-you-have.to run.46 to-  48 per cent of it on your furnace for  some time, the mechanical feeder will  cause thefurnade to freeze up, whereas  with judicious hand feeding you can  keep it going until you get less siliceous ore, so can get the furnace in good  shape   again.  With the above suggested further  information as to cleanness of slags,  tonnage handled per man, and power  required per ton smelted, besides a-  mount.of flue dust produced, in addition to the daily tonnage per square  foot furnace area, one can better compare the work done at the different  smelting plants and decide which is  the more  or less phenomenal.
