'trinsiibrtatton'facilities!;   \)f j /','    z V  , The .advantages to be derived from  the development of the high grade  properties' in the vicinity of the city  are many. The individual properties  will not employ a great number of men  it is true* but. the aggregate will be  reasonabley large. They will be men  who will make their money in Greenwood and spend it in Greenwood.  Their head offices will be here, not in  New York or L,ondon. Big mining  companies contribute much to the  growth and. development of a city but  the benefits arising from their undertakings are not so direct or speedy as  thoscwhich^the.small investors bTings  the men who dig the wealth out the  ground; and. cbhvertsit into cash right  in the city. There is a!lso the additional  advantage, that the high grade proper-  tiesjare'nearly all on the hills overlooking the town. The men who will develop thein will live in Gtreenwood and  make their homes here.  They also give an opportunity to the  man with small capital and plenty of  energy to.make -money<���..Already men  .without*, means'but 'with acknowledge  of mining and plenty of muscle are  negotiating:, to secure leases. : Should  ���     ���  . v.y.

He  kept  bright  and clear in his mind the idea  that if   opportunity   ever  offered   he  could find the Lead.   Two   years since  lie again came to the district to find a  railroad run ning within 1300 feet of the  spot lie remembered so well and the  boundary   line of  the   Province  the  boundary of the City  of Greenwood.  The claim had been crown granted.  years  ago, being Lot I in the district,  and the only way ! he could hope to get  a cliance to find the rich lead was to  get a lease and bond on the property,  After long negotiations, th'is he succeeded  in October last in doing,   associating with himself Mr. Whitwell a  mining man of experience from New  York, who has been, operating in this  district for the past three years.   Together they went to work with tare intelligence, good-judgment   and   hard  work Anally located the lead in place  and it has not, belied the bright promise held, out by ^the rich float found  ten years since.   TheyThave now six  men at work and taking'out ore from a  vein three feet wide which will average  every pound as it comes from the stope  $200 per ton.   The whole story  is one  more instance of the principal of "stick:  toitereneas" which is absolutely necessary   En   mining'.     Mr.   Fowler  is a  stocky  built, blue eyed Scot, hardy as  his Jia-tive "whim", one of the kind  who like  to  think of all the world as  their home, and although Arizona sun  aud Alaska snow  have bleached   hia  hair white he is still able to weild a  pick_orihiammer=with!_the best of them. _  Bringing his ripe experience and sound  judgment to bear he has no hesitation  in   saying, he ,is   convinced  there is  plenty  more reins as good as the one  he is working within sound of the  fire  bell of Greenwood, which only require  some Intelligent hard work to uncover.

Amongst them was William  Fowler one of those typical pioneers  who has; followed   the   profession of  prospector for the last .thirty years, thie  pursuit of his calling during that period taking him into all thegstates, provinces   and   territories   between    the  Dakotas and the Pacific and from the  Yukon to Old Mexico.    During that  summer prospecting was being carried  on  in   an  energetic  manner on   the  "Providence"  lying    on    Providence  creek, a small tributary of Boundary  creek.    Mr. Fowler was not working  on the claim but happened to be on the  ground   when   float   consisting   of a  boulder  weighing   about  a ton and a  half and assaying $+78 to the ton was  found. The parties owning the claim  redoubled their efforts to find th? lead  from which it came but without avail.  Mr. Fowler located some ground but  Railway Men Will Take Out Ore For  s  Granby.  B. "3. Porter oi Porter Bros., the well  ktlowti railway contractors, has confirmed the report that h is firm has secured a contract for taking out a large  amount ot ore for the Granby minea.  The contract will practically revoluti-  ouiz<|��ninin^ in Phoenix camp. Aa U  general iuiown, the whole hillside is  solid ore and instead of mining iu the  ordln ary way, the railway coatractors  will proceed just as if they were making a big cut for a railway grade. The  ore will be loaded on the cars by means  of derricks.  The only difference between working  oa a railway and at the Granby mines  is that on the latter contract union  miners will be employed.  It is expected that the railway contractors will be to take out large quantities of ore at a very low figure.  REWARD.  Wanted to know the whereabouts of  David Henderson of Greenwood, B.

The West Fork district should come  rapidly to the front this summer. A  sufficient sum has been placed iu the  estimates to complete the wagon road  and there are some hopes of securing  the construction of ihe Midway and  Vernon r.ailway. Major Ainslee  Meg-raw has been appointed deputy  mining recorder for the West Pork  district and has opened a sub-recording  office at Beaverdell, This means a  great convenience to the mine oirners  and prospectors who have property iu  the district.  The development of the West Fork  country has been retarded by a combination of unfortunate circumstances,  the chief cause being the miserable  fiasco in connection with the construction of the wag-on road. There is no  more promising mining, district in the  province? but reasonable facilities  must be provided to those -who are  anxious to see its develppment. The  outlook for the necessary aid to development is bright and the coming summer shonld see a large influx of popuL:  ation into that district.  NEW LEGISLATION.  Two bills were introduced in the  legislature last week in response to  representations made to the government by the delegates from the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia. One is an important measure from a labor standpoint.  It stands in the name of the attorney-  general and provides for the payment  -of----wages -of-labor-performed���in -the  construction of public works. The  necessity for this legislation waa made  apparent by the oonstruction of the  liardeau railway last year. The contract for th^ construction of the road  was awarded P. Welch & Co,, who  were in every way capable and finan-  ancially able to meet all obligations  connected with the undertaking, but  owing to heavy- contracts elsewhere  this work was sub-let and the sub-contractors went broke leaving the. workmen with time checks which could not  be cashed. The new measure provides  that on a< 1 public works claims for  wages must be satisfied before the contractors are paid in full and that every  company incorporated under any  general or special act of the legislature shall be liable for the payment of  the wages of all workmen employed in  the construction of any. work done by  the company.  The other measure provides more  stringent regulations for the preservation of forests from fires.  The holders of miner's certificates  are reminded that all certificates expires on May 31st. In order that they  may hold their claims, renewals must  be secured on or before that date.  $25.00 Reward  The above reward will be paid to any  one giving' information that will lead  to the conviction of the person who  stole a pick from the house of the undersigned on or about 6th inst.

Self Denial Week  The Work Done By The Salvation  Army  The Captain of the local army corps  informs us that the Salvation Army  throughout this /territory is now ac  tively engaged in preparation forthe  annual Self-denial week, which will  begin on Sunday May 25th. and end  Saturday May 31st. The purposes of  the army self-denial week are now universally known, and recongized as  worthy of every support, in this  country especially. Under the leadership of commissioner Evangeline  Booth, the army has made very satisfactory progress, and is on a sound  footing, its social institutions number  thirty five, and latest annual- report  shows a most satisfactory result,  Among the aborigines of all continents the Salvation Army desires to  to raise this year $25,000. Five thousand of this is intended to be appropriated toward the acquisition of a  central training, home at Toronto, as  Miss Booth realizes with the advance  of the times more thorough and up to  date training of Army officers becomes  imperative to! the continued success  of that organization. The public will  doubtless cheerfully give to the army  collectors, in due recognition of the  valuable work which that unique organization .does amongthe poorest and  most needy of our land,  50.00 in cash will buy'-a.'seven drawer  new Singer sewing machine.

Houston also got into ;tu altercation  with speaker Pooley -who asked him to  take his seat. This Houston refused  to do and the speaker appealed to the  government to protect 5i Un from insult  but the government were afraid to act.  The long looked i'or nulwuy bill was  brought clown by message on Monday  evening. It provides Uie aid already  stated for the Canadian Kbrthnni  and  34,000 a mile for a portion of tlje  Coast-Kootenay line and 34,300 a mile  for the most difficult part. A laud  grant of 1,000,000 acrca is also given to  the latter road.  Aid for the Midway and Vernon road  is not metitioned.lu the bill, but the  G-overnment organ, the Colonist lias  an inspired article, urging tne granting of the necessary aid to build this  railway and it is possible that a separate measure dealing; ".villi this road  will be introduced. Should this be  done, its chances of passing will be  excellent as many of the opposition are  i:i favor of assisting tliis project.  Another Big Order  Six Weeks at Hard Labor.

Firemen's Races and Base Ball Are  the Chief Attractions.-  Greenwood's gala, day, May r,4th,,is  g-oing- to be properly observed this  year. Judg-ing- from the,large.number  of letters received by Secretary Ehrlich  of the celebration committee, in -which  the writers tell of the various .teams  that are coming to take part in .the1 different events, and the' many friends  who" are coming' to boost the teams  along. The town will be crowded with  visitors. The committee are hard at  work perfecting the necessary arrangements and it is safe to say that when  Victoria Day comes rouud everything  will be in ship shape so that the visitors will be given a royal time.  Among those who are anxious to  seek fame in the contests here on the  24th is the War Eagle and the Centre  Star hose team. Mr. Ehrlich, has received a , communication from ,the  secretary of the organization in which  he states that his team : will come with  a' determination to capture all the firemen's races and incidentally the big  purses hung up in connection therewith. This team has been organized  for the purpose of giving lire protection to theCentre Star and War Eagle  mines. A team from'the Rossland tire  department is also likely to come, as  well as the Nelson team.  Grand Forks is going to send a. big  contingent over to the celebration. The  hose team from the peaceful [prairie  city are coming an��l its "ball twirlera  will try conclusions with Miller's colts.  Then Phoenix will have its hose tearii  here and probably abase ball team, if  one can be organized and trained before that date. And Chesaw is coming  over. The Myers creek town will send  horses and base bailers. The latter  believe that they can shut out any.of  the Canadian teams and are ready and  willing to back up the faith that is in  them.  These are only a few of the attractions. Next week the Times will tell of  further events for the big day.  lime and pyrites), lime ores 20per cent,,  low grade matte 10 per cent., slag 5 per  cent., coke coal, which costs at the furnace in question about half the price of-  coke.   The charge of fuel added is thus-  about 5 per cent, of the. total.    Whilst  the furnace is at work slag is run.off  continuously, whilst the matte which  contains gold, silver and copper, in the  original charge is tapped out from the  bottom   of   the  furnace ,,as required.  "When  copper contents of such matte  amount to 45 per cent.', it is standard,"  and can be sold to the large^copper rie-  fmers.who will extract from it the gold  and   silver.   If  this   standard is: r:6i  reached,   the . matte   is. passed again  through the furnace till it is enriched  to the necessary degree.   The'slag'cpn-  tainsonly traces of gold and silver and  is thrown avvay". A plant,  capable ' of  treating; '40 tons of ore per day,''and  yielding 3, to; 4 .tons of standard matte  costs, it is'statedjbut a couple of thousand pounds, and stamp;mills are\ribt I  required, since it is unnecessary to pulverise .the .ores before passing' them  into the furnace.'' Mr. Koch holds that  this method is likeley.tortake a great  development in ithe future,   and will;  with the cyanide process, be response  ble for a large proportion of,the world's  outjiut of-gold.    The process of extraction by chlorihatioh will, on theother  hand; tend to dissappea'r, as it is only  suitable when ores free from lime, and  water, also lime free, aire both available,   though    at    Cripple   Creek   this  method is so far the favorite.  Pyritic Smelting  Some mining men still have faith in  the Pyritic system of smelting as may  lie seen by the following article re^  cently published in London E'ngeueer-  iuSr; ' '"' ���   '.- -���' ':. ,, y:  Sulphur in gold."ores has long been  one of the banes of the mining engineer, since with the'usual methods of  gold extraction it has been necessary  to remove the sulphur pretty'completely by roasting beforeattemptirig,to recover the precious metal. -In a paper  recently read before the Engineers'  Society of Western Pennsylvania, W.  F. Koch claims that this sulphur, so  far from being adeliterioiis ingredient,  may often be a positive advantage if  the older methods of treating such  ores are abandoned, aud the gold is obtained by "pyritic" smelting. In this  case the sulphur, instead of being  wasted by roasting it off, serves as fuel,  replacing an equivalent quantity of  coke. The ores charged into the furnace arc quartz ores, lime ores, quartz  and lime ores, quarlz and aluminous  ores, all containing gold, in varying  amounts, and a small percentage of  copper. Mixed with these are the pyretic ores, ranging from pyrites with  quartz, quartz with pyrites, lime and  pyrites,and quartz, lime, alumina and  quartz, which form a fairly representative list of refractory gold ores. The  furnace used is a simple water-j acketed  blast furnace, having proivsioti for  collecting the waste heat which is utilized for warming the blast. This blast  should be [powerful enough to get a  hot zone right at the tuyeres, a greater  supply of air being a disadvantage,  since there is then a tendancy toaet up  re-actions in the decending column of  ore and fuel. For similar reasons the  height of ore above the tuyeres should  not be too great. The charge consists  of a mixture, in the following proportions, of ores, such as those already  mentioned: Pyrites IS per cent, quartz  ores 45 per cent,  (these usually contain  Foi- sale No. 5.Hydraulic Earn 6 to 10  gallons water'per minute, 2 inch drive,  1 inch discharge.
