Array 1/  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MARCH 14. 1<J02.  No. 3-frr A 7,  Mi*: Kerref. In the Canadian Mining Review,  Exjlalitf the Cheap Mining Methods in the  Boundary���f he Mother Lode Mine.  It is ttsually the case in new districts  presenting a varieLy of new: conditions, that a good deal of preliminary  work must be done to determine the  best methods of mining and treating  ores. This has been in the Boundary  district, the ores of which, as a rule,  are of very low grade, occuring in deposits of great extent without well defined walls.  it is the purpose of this paper to describe 1lie methods of mining at the  Mother Lode mine in Deadwood camp  near Greenwood, arid" |the * reasons  which have led up to their adoption. ���  The ore deposit here outcrops at intervals for a distance of about 2000  feet, the width in explored portion  averaging perhaps 140 feet although  the absence of any defined walls prevents exact measure being given. The,  dip is 70 degrees easterly, and pitch  toward the south at an angle yet.uu-  determined. Only the ground to the  north of the shaft, which is located  centrally, has been developed by a  northerly drift from shaft on the 200  foot lepel, the drift exte.tding-to apparent end of ore. The deposit was  crosscut at intervals of about 100 feel.  Similar work was also done on the 300.  level. A .winze to iiirfacc, about 500  feet to north of shaft, afforded good  ventilation.  It was the original intention to sort  all the ore from the mine, filling the  stopes with the waste, and .with the  rock blasted���'������'���. firb'm'. the walls'-. or elsewhere obtained. " Th this eiid a system  of belt conveyors was arranged whereby the ore from the shaft was dumped  into a No. 5 Gates crusher, thence passing over a three foot wide picking  belt  to the ore  bins.    The waste was  dropped into side pockets falling upon  another belt system, whereby it was  conveyed to a bin at lop of winze,  whence it was to be dropped into the  the stopes.  It may be sade thatjthe term "waste"  is, getierlly speaking, merely comparative, for the Whole of the ore bo.ly  (with exception noted below) contains  copper, gold and silver in varying degree, and waste is merely rock with  lesser quantities, of these, metals  The 'sorting and '*: con yeying belts  worked to a nicety, but the smelter-had  been in operation but a short time when  it became apparant that its capacity  for self-fluxing ores was much greater  than had been thought possible, and  consequently smelting costs were  lower thaii had been thought possible,  and consequently smelting costs weie  lower than had been figured, A direct  result of this was that the definition  of 'waste" was altered, and its quantity  Treatly diminished, And further, that  the cost of sorting uul this diminished  waste was- approximately equal to  smelting it; for even the poorest of the  rock contains.some values to offset' iu  part the smelting charges. These conditions necessitated the abandonment  of the filling plan for stopes. Also the  sorting of ores was suspended, save fot  certain ores from 300 level, where the  waste happens to be totally barren and  easily sorted out. The filling system  having been dropped, it was then planned to timber the stopes iu the ordinary fashion, but this plan was abandoned on account of high cost of  timber compared with ore contents.  A third alternative was next adopt  ed in one stope���that of timbering the  whole of the floor of stope heavily,only  the excess of ore from above** ���being*���  dropped; through slut tes'.'conveniently.'  placed,. ; This plan, was going-nicely������  uutiit.he.roof of stope was "some 20 feet  over timbers,.when a mass'of ore be  came detached frbriiroof, which., mass.  weighed -soiiie; :hivi-ured; tons.

The   crosscuts   already existing were used,  and  other-  cut  were  needed under the  centre of  each stope.  "From   these crosscuts upraises were made 30 feet apart.    These  were made 10 to 12 feet  high, and were  then connected by second  and parallel  crosscuts.*   From these latter crosscuts*  the stopes were opened out the proposed  width,  and .then-carried vertically  upward, the'short, upraises  being cribbed euicl furnished with gates for load  ing.    Between the stopes, pillars 20 to  25 feet in': thickness  were  left, these  being-'frequently pierced to allow intercommunication and ventilation.  In tlie stope where the wreck occurred, a .very heavily timbered passage  .cori'esporidiiitr to a crosscut was bi'iit.'*  chutes being placed,;'.t 30 foot intervals.  The.empty space was filled with porphyry-blasted front a blanket dyke,  which extends through all the ground  yet explored.

Over one hundred people, attended  the Socialist meeting* at the city hall  last Friday evening to hear Mr. R. B.  Kerr, of Phoenix, deliA'er an address  on ''Direct Legislation."  :*;Mr. Kerr opened the address by re-  ieiTing to the New England town  meetings, and gave Brookliite, Mass..  as ;'atx' example. Although ���*. the popul-  .attoii of that city is over 15,000 the  voters, still meet seven or eight times  an anally* and pass laArs.for themselves.  They : have never yet had ao'nayor or  ^city council. Prof. Parsons, the celebrated lecturer, recently compared, the  municipal governments of Brookline  and.Boston, much to the advantage;of  the former. The expenditure of Brook-  Hue amounts to over a. million dollars  yearly, and the city is modern and  up-to-date in,every particular.  The. referendum aiid initiative are  the principles of direct legislation.  Greenwood furnishes an example of  the 'referendum as all 'money'by-laws  have to be voted on by the rate payers.  Direct legislation in British Columbia  vvould 'mean that all. laws*.-passed by  the' legislature : could* be .voted on by  the people if they (the people) wished  it.* Sontli Dakota has direct legislation, anda laAV theredoes ;,not 'go into  effect until sixty'.da\;;*�� after it has been  passed :by' the legislature.; If in. the  meantime five per cent of the voters  sign ;a*; petition : to have the.bill voted  6,nkl>y.**'*."th*o.*.i people,; it is^theu pnti-tq rc-  fefena.tiin. This explaihs.tlieiiieaning  of initiative���:l certain percentage of  the voters petitioning, that a billbe put  to refereddu m, or vote of the people.  Messrs. BrbAvn'aud Curtis introduced* a^'bill at Victoria during tne last  session, granting of charters and franchise to be put to Arote of the people,  but the'.!)ill was defeated. Oregon and  Utah are about to inti oduce direct  iegislatioo. 3ati Francisco has referendum and initiative, requiring 15 per  cent of voters to sign petitions, while  Seattle requires 25  per   cent,   almost  to look out foi thcmselvee.  Fifty  years'ago  Switzerland   was  more mi<ler the heel of class rule than  any other -country.  Now they have the  finest system of  government   in  the  Avorld. Direct Legislation enables the  voters to vote on-every question intelligently.       At      elections |     at      present, so inanny different questions are  embodied iu one platform that theycan-  iiot be voted on  intelligently.  In the  last election in' this province a yot<er  had either to vote for Joe Martin  and  all   his   principals   or    against    Joe  Mar,tin    and     all      his     principles  ciples, and as a great many voters w-fire  in favor of a   Coast-Kootenay .railway  but opposed to Martin, they could not  vote as they wished. Direct legislation  w'ould effectually solve this difficulty.  At elections the people tvould be able  to vote for the best, man, irrespective  of party, and later on, say once or twice  a year could  vote on   individual questions. In Switzerland a man who   has  the interests of the people at heart is  always re-elected.   If the Canada Northern 'raibva-y. subsidy were put to a  vote. th�� people would be able to vote  for their OAvn opinions and convictions.  The initative and referendum is the  principal plank in1 our   Socialist platform and we will work and vote till we  get it,   It is the key to all reformers.  Important public questions are how  laid on the shelf frormyear to year,and  no question is brought forward which  will for ainoineut endanger the ?ife of *  the party.in power.,  Questions were asked by the audience,  short speches ;,were made Messrs Galloway,   Caulfield,   Dr.  McRae,   and a  member of the Salvation Army.

Mr.  Kerr quoted the prayer of Henry Ward  Beecbi.'i- iu this connection, "Lord keep  us from despising our rulers, and make  them behave so .that we cannot despise  them." He showed by the following  illustration the looseness of our form  of . go'vvriirnent. Suppose that the  KusseU-J,;-Lvv-Cai:ilield Co. elected their  clerks to jict as managers of th-** business and gave them sole power to act,  keeping no check ou them. If a customer .should come in, and failing to  get vvlmt he Avutitetl through the fault  of the cleili, should turn to the real  owner, th�� clerk would say "He's only  tlie owner (the people); you've got tn  io.ixitie.ss v.-ith uie as I'm tha manager (the government).  Mr. Kerr referred to tlie ln.nii.se.-.  which tlie government of B. C. pro-  p*>ses ���.'���ranting to Maekoii/iie & Maun  and the Canadian Northern. These  great questions should be voted on  direct ly by the people. As it is now,  tliat is sought which will clo most to-  Avunis in .tin t.*t in irfg the present government in power. Mr. Eberts accused  Smith Curtis and Mr. Brown of talking to the gallery.in other Avords to the  poopi-J.

Evervbod v . in   tne  Boundary coun-  "   *    . t  try   ought    to   welcome   the   coin iug-.  of more railways* Cheap transportation and cheap fuel are imperative in  the development-of this region, and  although J. J, Hill doesn't appear to  think that rail way competition means  cheap Tates we will take our chances  on general betterment at least if  another railway should come. The V.  V. & E. road has had much to contend  within its effort to get into-the Boundary. It has had to ni3ke an up-hill  fight with the government and lately  it has been opposed by local interests  at Grand Forks. The latest reports  are to the effect that the effort to check  <*his road's progress in* the valley lms  been thwarted and that by making a  short detour and avoiding Manly's  ranch the road has been able to proceed.  Grand Forks had trouble Avith the  Canadian Pacific at the time it was  building, but that road appears have  forgiven and forgotten. And uoav the  obstacles placed in the way of the  second road may ultimately do tti'eni  good. Railroads are 'accustomed to  fighting and presumably admire tliose  qualities in localities. Green wood's  policy has a lways been of the oppo.-Jte  type. The toAvnsite owners Avere  liberal t.o the C. P. R. in the matter-.'of.  townsite subsidy and the people of .the  Boundary Creek valley are ooav  anxious to welcome another road.  Whether or not their spirit of fair-play  and liberality will redound to their  benefit will remain to be seen. ' We  trust so.  BOUNDARY REPRESENTATION.  The attitude of the Associated Boards  of Trade in regard to representation  tor Boundary in the provincial legislative appears to be misunderstood.  Even so Avell informed a gentleman as  Hon. Smith Curtis somewhat slightly  misunderstood the attitude the Board  took, as evidenced by the following  quotation from a letter recently received :  "I was very much surprised to see  that at the meeting of the Associated  Boards of Trade at Kaslo a resolution  Avas passed asking ihat the Boundary  country be given but one representative in the local legislature.  "I haw, ever since I have been in  the legislature, been advocating Hint  the Kettle River Mining Di vision, Avi I li  the possible addition of territory extending to Lake Okanag.ni, be given  a representative; ulso that the Grand  Forks Mining Division be given a  representative."'  Mr. Curtis shows commendable neal  in the matter and the Bot'indary appreciates it. The thought of the convention howtver Avas rather in favor of  not insisting upon the full rights of  the Boundary until si full measure of  redistribution was passed, meantime  asking for a special act that shall  divide the Rossland riding' and give  the Avestern part, or the Boundary, a  member for the present session of the  legislature. The convention desired  to recognize the right of the Boundary  to representation as a general principle, leaving the distribution of seats  on a basis of population to the government.  The people of the Boundary nuinber-  ing'over 6000 between Cascade and McKinney claim the right to two representatives under the census, the pre-  Tlie Post-Intelligencer of Seattle  recently discussed Couan Doyle late  book "The war in South Africa, its  causes and conduct"' in a spirit very  favorable to the British. The follOAV-  ing quotations from the artiele are  worth clipping, coming as they do  from a. source outside the empire :  ''While necessarily pro-British, it: is  written clearly and cainiiy, by a man  who has had the largest opportunity to  know the real facts, and. whose character is such that it must be recognized  that he would not willfully misstate,  any of them, however he may be'prejudiced in the coiiciusions^Avhiclr he  draws.  "Leaving aside the portion of the  book of largest- historic value, that  which describes the conditions leading  up to the war, and turning only to the  discussion of the manner in which the  Avar has been conducted, it is hard to  resist the "conclusion that the charges  of barbarous cruelty made against the  British soldiers in the field are based  on very slight evidence.  "The defence of Dr. Doyle isnot  \--aguc and general, as are the charges,  It is supported by documentary evidence,' by letters from Boer men and  women, and from many ministers of  '..the gospel who are on the ground, including some Dutch ministers heartly  in sympathy with the Boers. He also  includes letters from Boer officers still  in the field, thanking the British for  the exceptionally kind treatment of  their \yives and families. He cites  statements from the foreigu military  attaches and from fo-reign Avar correspondents -who attended the army,  some of whom were, in sentiment most  ardent pro-Boers, all agreeing *. iii  hearty praise of the personal conduct of  the British soldiers.  ��� *   *   * . * :  "Of course it is not to be expected  that Dr. Doyle's book will have much  ellject upon those avIio have have permitted their prejudices to warp their  judgment, but tu those who are open  to conviction it will certainly cause a  doubt as to whether Tommy A ileitis in  South Africa is any worse t li j-i- lbs  average soldier of any nationality in**  an enemy's country. Indeed, it leaves  the -impression thai he is far better.
