M.  ��J  Over $200 to the Ton From Last Shipment of Sally  Ore���Two More Cars Now on the Way  to the Smelter.  Last week Ralph Smailes received  from the T-rail smelter a cheque for  $4,143.50, being net smelter returns for  20 tons of ore from the Sally mine on  the West Fork of Kettle river. One  car of ore is now at the Midway station ready for shipment, and another  has been hauled as far a Westbridge,  a total of about fifty tons of an approximate net valne of $10,000?  The mine, or rather group of mines,  is distant from the terminus of the  Columbia and Western railway at Midway about fifty miles, and sixty from  Greenwood. The property, is owned  by the Vancouver and Boundary Creek  Mining and Development company,  the principal shareholders being residents of Greenwood.  The group is located on Wallace  mountain at Beaverdell, near the  junction of Beaver creek- with the  West Fork of the Kettle river. There  are twelve claimsin the group, through  which run nine or ten parallel leads in  an easterly -and westerly direction.  Shipments so far have, been made  from the No. 1 lead, but development  work is being done on the ;other leads;  The ore now' being shipped is taken  from a tunnel tapping the lead at a  depth of about 135; feet. -The paystreak is 30 inches wide'and very little  sorting is required. All the leads in  the group, with the exception of No.  2, are in granite.  . No. 2 lead? the largest and* it.is believed the richest, lies between granite  and diorite, and averages about - five  feet in widthv^,^s%-*,ys.,^f,pr,e,.frora this;'  lead assayed as h'gfi as 900 ounces in  silver and from that down to 140 oz.  The lead has been prospectvd.by op-.n  cuts across the group, and on the adjoining claims to the east and west.  This lead is now being systematically  developed with a view to. the commencement of regular shipments at an,  early date. The other leads run from  12 to 18 inches in width, and have all  been prospected by surface crosscuts.  At present 27 men are employed under Superintendent Vacher. who has  had charge of the work : since the company commenced operations. Besides  development work being done on the  No. 1 and No. 2 leads, this force mines  from twenty to thirty tons of shipping  ore per week running about $200 to the  ���ton-^===-^=^*-==^-=^^^?^^^  railway,   the  latter amounting to between $15 and S20 a ton.  The Sally is at-an elevation of 4,350  above the level of the sea, and is nearly  2,000 feel above the valley of the West  Fork. The Sally group was located  in 1897 by Stewart 'nnd Felto, who  sold it to the present owners.  . In all about fify claims have been located on Wallace mountain.. The only  other property tliat has shipped to any  extent is the Rambler, s'tuated about  a mile from the Sally in au easterly  direction. It is claimed, that the Sally  leads run into the Rambler, Standard,  Black Diamond and other claims on  Dry creek. On the Rambler two men  are taking out abo.it a ton of shipping  ore weekly fronv a 3-foot load. West  of the Salley all the leads have been  picke'd up, and work is now being done  on the Duncan ti.ider bond. This  claim has a numbor of similar looking  surface showings to thos,e found on  the Sally.  With the building ol the Midway  and Vernoa railway, which is now assured, Wallace mountain will become  the greatest silver producing camp of  British Columbia. ��� The leads have  been uncovered and shipments made  from the Sally on one side and the.  Rambler on the other side of the  m6untain,which proves that the leads  are continuous for between two and  three miles'east *ind west. This alone  means that some forty claims will;;be'-  come shipping mines? There are also  the'silver-gold claims of Carmi, Cranberry, China, Kelly and Beaver creeks  and the -iarije-bodies' of'.-low.r-grade  ores some distance-'up Beaver creek.  There is no reason to doubt* the state-"  ments made by mining men and prospectors who are /familiar with the  country, that the camps of the West  Fork-district are capable of producing  a much larger tonnage than those of  the Boundary.  wm%\  ���'*Q'iAjz'*d''  The first shipment was made from  the Sally in April 1901, when 16 tons  were sent to the Nelson-smelter and  returned gross values of $95 a ton.  The second snipment was in February,  1904, when \ car conta'ning 42,820  pounds, sent to the Trail smelier, returned 3.519 ounces of.silver, valued at  $1,876. The following month a second  car was shipped to-Trail. The lot  weighed 43,424 pounds, and contained  4,778 ounces silver and 2,086 pounds of  lead, together valued at $2,627. This  carload netted $2,318 above cost of  railway transpenation and treatment  In April, 1904, 32,206 pounds were  shipped, containing* 3,175 ounces of  silver and 840 pounds of lead, from  which the gross amount realized was  $1,698. ' '  At that time "there was no wagon  road between the Sally and Beaverdell, so shipments could be made only  during the winter season, the ore being  rawhided down Walace mountain to  Beaverdell and hauled from there in  sleighs to the railway station at Midway. As a consequence no further  shipments were made until last February, when 41,829 pounds were sent  to Trail. This gave 3,994 ounces silver and 2,761 pourds lead, and having  a gross value of $2,376. The fifth car  lot shipment was made in March last.  This contained 42,577 pounds, giving  4,798 ounces silver and 3,108 pounds  lead, and having a gross value of  52,690 This ore averaged 225.40 oz.  silver to the ton aid 7.30 per cent lead.  The railway and treatment charges on  this car amounted to 3311.76, leaving  32,378, from which must be deducted  the cost of mining and hauling to the  Tne Crescent?   -  On the Crescent tlie work is at present confined to sinking on au ore body,  which, although not the largest, carries the best values. The shaft is  down 75 feet with drifts on the 40-foot  level. The ledge is about 18 inches ou  the level and is solid ore, running  without sorting tip to $150 in gold and  arsenical silver.     Five   carloads   are  now readv for shipment.~rThTee~sh~i��ts  are working with the intention of sinking to the 100-foot level and then running a drift to connect with another  shaft farther up the hill and on another big vein. Much work has been  done here on a body about two feet  thick. Open cuts have been run on  three other ledges ou the Crescent  ground. Several men are working on  a surface cut in a low grade ledge a  short distance above the second shaft.  It has now been proven to a width of  over 100 feet on the surface. The ore  appears to be of a silicious character,  aud carries considerable values in gold  and copper. A tunnel will be run from  the nearby shaft to tap this body at  depih. The Cre.it Morthern tracks  run only a short distance from this  property, so if the low-^rade lead turns  out wed no ditlioultv will be ex per ir  perieticed in getting transportation.���  Anaconda News.  The EPU.  Repairs to the IS P. U tram will be  completed this week. The new head  is being put in, and two cars of ore  wi.l be shipped as soon as the work  on the tram is completed. Drifting is  being done at the 200-foot level, and  in future regular shipments will be  made from the mine.  The Preston,  The shaft on the Preston is down 50  feet on the ore. Drifting is being  done at this level. A tunnel is also  being run on the ore from a point  about tinee hundred feel from the  shaft.   This is 80 feet in ore.

Percy F. Godenrath is going to'.publish a book, entitled "Mother Earth's  Treasure Vaults." The book will contain reminiscences of the pioneers of  the Boundary and Similkameen districts. The price of the book will be  25 cents, cash. The author, in the  opening paragraph ot his prospectus,  says: " With the primary- object of  placing before the reading public a  blende of short stories sorted from the  lives of those who delve in the hills in  search of MotherEarth's hidden  treasure vaults, the promoter of this  journalistic venture formed a small  syndicate of pencil pushers."  "Better than ever in its history and  everything pointing ahead hopefully,"  was the wav in which S. H. C. Miner  sooke of British Columbia in an interview in Vancouver. Mr. Miner is one  of the most largely interested of  Eastern men in British Columbia resources.: He gives a direct denial io  the report that he was withdrawing  his money from British Columbia investments. He was retiriug-as far as  possible from active management but  his money .would remain, as he did not  think he could place it better. Mr.  Miner is a quiet man, but he became  almost enthusiastic when he spoks of  the Granby smelter and the mines at  Phoenix. "Why,'' he said, "our is  the onlycopper-mine^in^tlie-world-that  is being operated by a steam shovel  I am very glad that I ever struck British Columbia."  THE WASTE DUMP.  Districts rich in high-grade ore cannot be depended upon for permanency  as can the larger bodies of low-grade.  Coke was first made in the United  States in 1841.  In 1810 the "United States produced  iron to the value of $6,081,000.  The compressed air rock drill is the  invention of S. Ingersoll, who in 1871  applied for patents. The Ingersoll-  Sargeant Drill company grew out of  this invention, and compressed air  drills are at work in all lands.  The presence of very small quantities of foreign metals produces a brit-  tleness in gold. In this respect silver  and copper are less deleterious than  are lead and iron. Tellurium also imparts this undesirable quality to gold,  Blue vitrol is a by-product of both  copper refinitijj* and silver refining  plants. In works ofo the former class  old and foul solutions are used for this  purpose, while in the latter case the  copper solution ii obtained when the  silver is precipitated by metallic copper  Practicallj* the only lode tin mining  of an}* extent in the world occurs in  Bolivia, which is the second tin mining region of the world, aud the largest  producer of lode tin. In the Transvaal tin is also hein:: f<;und in veins,  but the industry has nut yet assumed  any importance.  The oiling of large jimvcr plants is  frequently accomplished by a gravity  system   whereby   a   reservoir  is  con  nected by -.suitable piping with the  sight-feed and control ing- valves which  distribute oil to the various bearings.  Compressed air may be used for filling  the overhead tank.      :  It is stated that animals working underground may impaove rather than  deteriorate. The equable temperature  of the mine is supposed to account for  this in a largo degroe. Only a year  or two ago a pony was brought to the  surface, having been in the Green  colliery, Wishaw, for over thirty years.  An asbestos shingle has recently  been patented, which is composed of  asbestos fibre and hydraulic cement.  These shingles sre much stronger  than slate and and lighter in weight.  They are made in squars four and a  half inches ou a side, with two corners  of the square truncated. . They are  made iri three colors���gray, slate and  brick red.  The steam turbine has reached a  stage where it may be considered a  competitor in central-station power  production. One of these machines at  the Donnersmark mine in Silesia has  been in operation for two years. It is  estimated that the actual running time  has been 17,200'hours, and that over  three billion revolutions were made.  On being taken apart lately no trace  of wear was shown.  From one-fourth to one-third of the  gold annually mined goes into use as  money or bullion reserves carried by  banks and national treasuries. The  remainder is disposed of in the arts for  purposes of personal adornment, etc.  A considerable part is lost permanently  by abrasion of coins, shipwreck and in  fires. Some is withdrawn by hoarding.  No estimates of real value, are available for showing the amount cf gold  absorbed by each of these channels  into which gold naturally enters.  It is stated in the engineering supplement of a recent issue of the London Times that so encouraging have  been the results obtained during the  past two years at an experimental  plant near London,in tests for utilizing  peat for the production of sulphate of  ammonia, that a complete recovery  plant is being erected in the midst of  the peat lands of Carnlough, Antrim  county, Ireland. While the drawback  to the use of peat as industrial material has hitherto beeu the difficulty  and expense of freeing it from its inherent moisture, it is claimed that the  presence of up to 50 per cent of moisture is a positive advantage in the new  process, and that there is a recovery-.of  60 per cent of free ammonia in the  form of sulphate, which is a valuable  fertilizing agent.  It has been stated that within the  next six years most of the better-known  Transvaal mines will have gone out  of business? owing to the exhaustion  of the ore bodies. Their places will be  taken by the so-called deep level mines.  While it is of course true that every  mine has" a finite life, yet we do not  p'ace much faith in these predictions.  We have heard them so often in regard to other districts* that we prefer  to wait and see. The Ti ansvaal mines  are naturally shorter lived than the  Western mines; owing tojhe fact that  ii the Transvaal there are no extra-  lateral rights. Yet, as a matter of  fact, the deep levels mines are mainly  owned by the companies operating the  so-called outcrop mines.  One   Dollar  Saved   Represents Ten  Dollars Earned.  The average man does not save to  exceed ten per cent of his earnings.  He must spend nine dollars in living  expenses for every dollar saved.

Similarly the question of climatic  changes has been studied and certain  resulting diagrams prepared to show  that these falls are more frequent in  the winter than in the summer.  The underground falling of earth is  not without parallel incident in the  movement of extremely large surface  masses, amounting in some instances  to the slipping of an entire hill, with  consequent loss of property. Periodical slips of thecsame hill are of known  occurrence, so that certain areas become known as unsafe. The contri  huting causes of these surface move,  ments are apparently as inexplicable  as are those producing underground  falls, the British inspectors of mines  considered that systematic timbering  and continuous working of the mines  were , the two greatest factors for  safety. The first item is efficient, but  doubtless too often neglected. As to  the second, it is not universally accepted, but there appears to be suffi-.  cient ground for believing that mines  may suffer from irregular working,  owing to the fact that less attention is  paid to timbering and repairs?than  when operations are continuous.  In the meantime those most closely  identified with these conditions regard  the problem as of paramount importance, and are giving it the attention it  demands.���Mining Reporter.

A Baker street merchant remarked  today: " The policy that has broken  the railway monopoly in British Columbia is beginning' to break me. Iti  the last two months I have lost twenty  five regular customers, who have been  forced to leave Nelson."���Tribune.  It would be interesting to know  what steps, if any, are being* taken by  the provincial government to prevent  the importation of mangy cattle from  the Northwest. That the disease is  rampant there i.s a fact well known to  stock raisers. Is it equally well known  to the provincial government? If so,  what are they going to do about it?���  Kamioops Sentinel.  Seventy-live Liberals and three Conservatives voted in the railway committee in favor of railway competition  in British Columbia, while-forty-nine  Conservatives and eleven Liberals  voted for railway monopoly. The contrasting figures are significant as to  the attitude of the parties towards corporations.���Winnipeg- Free Press.  . The idea that British Columbia can  be shut off trom connection with the  railway systems of the United States  is one of the most preposterous^* unjust that ever entered the brain- of  man. The physical configuration of  the country points to the freest possible communication. Imagine any-  one attempting to cut Ontario off  from connection with the Michigan  Central or the New York Central !���  Toronto'News.   -=���  A hard-working journalist is in  trouble in Victoria through taking a  pot shot at a man who imagined the  wife of a journalist needed his sympathetic protection. The journalist is  held pending a preliminary hearing,  and the man who caused, the trouble  wrote a letter to tlie press saying he  would leave.the country so as not to be  a witness at the hearing, but he took  good care to get the letter in print before he left the country., He was immediately arrested, and is held as a  witness. Every "newspaper man on  the coast should stand for the journalist who is iu trouble. Their calling is  one that keeps them from their homes  and families at hours when most-men  are abed, aud if'their, homes are invaded by sympathetic protectors bent  on destroying; the home life of those  who are absent, pot-shooting is what  they deserve.���Nelson Tribune.

Princeton stage was. late Monday.  On making inquiry the cause was  learned -a mishap on the way. One  of the hind wheels came off and allowed the axle to plough through a  mud hole. When the passengers had  scrambled out they formed themselves  into a committee of ways and means.  The axle was cleaned and the wheel  put on again, but on a dry axle. What  was to be done? There was no dwelling within miles; the driver was in  despair; the*male passengers had gone  their limit, when a lady passenger  came to the rescue and produced the  one thing necessary���a lubricant.  This she fished out ofh-T traveling  baj in the shape of a bottle of castor,  oil, and then all went merry as a marriage bell. Moral, "don't travel without a suitable loosener." Castor oil is  an old stand-by; good alike for babies  and stages. God bless the ladies!���  Hedley Gazette.  Publicity in mining operations is receiving much consideration in all parts  of the world. In the presidential address recently delivered before the In-  stitute'of Mining and Motallurgy, W.

It would appear that if  anything is kept concealed about a  mine, some astute individual is pretty  sure, sooner or later, to find it out."���  Mining World.  As bodily illness aud infirmity affect the mind, causing the atllicted to  grasp at the last straw offered by the  patont medicine fakir, so in like man-  tier failure to discover gold sometimes  causes men otherwise sane and sound  to engage in the most ridiculous performance of placing their faith in that  talisman.' the divining rod. One of  the latest instances ot recourse to this  extraordinary method of mining, involves the dignified directorate of a  foreign mining company. It is encouraging to note that the diviner  "felt yold all around him.'" It i.s also  noteworthy that he hastened to protect his reputation with the o/.ialifyjng  always   regard  a  mine   which   makt-s I clause that the "metal was 330 feet i;e-  great difficulty   about  letting  visitors j low the present depth of the shaft." It  of a dredge and decided to commence  dredging in the valley "where it was  known, from results obtained, that  there was gold." We venture that a  complete recovery on the part of the  directorate will be marked by the use  of diamond drills instead of divining  rods, and the employment of mining  engineers in place of wizzards claiming to be controlled by spirits of the  departed���Mining Reporter.  The Sidney Herald complains that  the government in Australia costs a  great deal too much. Parliamentary  government costs the commonwealth  and the states over half a million  pounds sterling per annum, a considerable percentage of which goes to  pay the salarii-s of ministers and allowances of members, who number 660  in all, or more than twice as many as  England had when its population  equalled that ot Australia at,present.  The herald points out that were the  membership of the house ot" lords and  commons in these latter days proportionate lo the federal and stale parlia  incuts of the commonwealth, it would  need to be multiplied tenfold.. The  people had hoped that federation would  ensure a reduction in the cost of government, hut instead of a saving being  effected the new arrangement has ma-  go underground and will not give in- | may be assumed that the latter remark i terially increased the expense.
