PER  WEEK,     THEY   ARE   CONSIDERED  VERY FINE  EATING  - There are at least a score of mines in  district that are working-steadily right  along1 and with generally satisfactory  results. Most prominent among- these  are the Miner-Graves group���the'.Old  Ironsides, Knob Hill, , Victoria and  Grey Eagle���War Eagle and Snow-  shoe, in Greenwood camp; Golden  Crown and "Winnipeg, in Wellington'  camp; the City of Paris in White's  camp; the B.. C. and K. Bell, in Summit camp; and the Mother L,ode, Sunset, Morrison and Buckhorn, in Dead-  wood camp. In addition to a number  of other properties that are .'advancing  beyond the prospect stage; there are  numerous claims upon which more or  less work is being'done and some of  these look very promising. It is evident then that despite the prevailing  quietness of business throughout the  district and the comparative absence  of activity iii the direction of new  enterprises heing undertaken, thereis  much that is encouraging in the present position." In fact there is room for  satisaction in two particular respects.  One that the substantial progress now  being made in mining matters is distinctly upon the merits of the mining  industry, arid the other, which is the  direct outcome of this progress, is that  the district may now fairly claim to  have_entered upon,the'  SHIPPING   STAGE.  In support of this claim it may be  poiuteu'-uUL -Lhat "the ii. C, Old ironsides, Knob Hill, Golden Crown, Winnipeg are sending out ore regularly,  three of them to the Granby smelter at  Grand Forks, and the others to the^C.  P. R. smelter at Trail. Compared with  ol ler districts having more extensively  developed mines, the total shipments  from the Boundary district, of course,  appear small", but there is good reason  to believe that following the early installation of new and larger plants  and the provision of other facilities for  mining, raising and shipping ore, the  output of the mines and the consequent  increase in the quantity of ore sent to  the smelters, will rapidly increase and  will, ere the current year closes, attain  a total that will prove a most convincing object lesson as to the importance  and value of the Boundary's contribution to "the staple products of province. The number of cars of ore sent  out during July was as follows:  B. C. mine... ; *.'. ,:...,.   87  Old Ironsides    64  Knob Hill .....���.;......'    31  Golden  Crown..............7.7-;...    36  City pf Paris    20  Winnipeg. ', ;    14  Total number of cars .252  It will be seen that the Mother I/ode  mine does not appear in the above list  as a shipper. The reasons for this are  that notwithstanding that this mine  has an enormous body of ore opened  up by drifts and crosscuts, so that  stoping is quite practicable in at least,  half a dozen different parts of the mine,  the more powerful air compressor plant  and hoisting engine ordered have not  yet been received, the ore-sorting plant  and appliances are not ready for use  and the-company's smelter is not yet  completed...:_ It is unlikely, . though,  that much Mother I^ode ore will be  sent to Trail, for by the time the mine  is in shape to ship freely the smelter  now being erected at Greenwood,"  principally for the purpose of reducing  the ores of this mine, will be ready to  treat them. Before referring further  to the district smelter position, it may  be mentioned that alittle pre additional  to that stated,,above.- was*���.6Td-tti_l*t"_fl*r  .month, but as it'was only for test purposes, no account is here taken of it.  'WORK AT IHK SMEW'ERS.  With nearly everything else in readiness for actual smelting to be commenced at. the Granby smelter, and  ore arriving right along, the unavoidable delay caused in connection with  the development of the water power,  which must be made available before  the furnace can be blown in, is much  to be regretted.- 'However, there is no  use iu being- impatient since so large  and important an industry may not  'hastily be set a going with any reasonable prospect of being maintained in  operation. Adequate power, fluxes,  fuel and other requisites must first  haye been secured ere a start can be  .made.^_It.Js^stated^thatrworki.on^the;  dam across the North Fork of Kettle  river, is now so far advanced that the  water maybe turned into the bigflume  any day. So it seems that President  Miner's expectation to have the smelter at work'and everything running  soomthly in connection with it and the  output of ore from his company's  mines within the next week or so is  likely to be realized.  The Greenwood smelter, though not  nearly so far advanced towards completion as the one at Grand Forks, is  making a good showing. During July  much work was done by the force of  bricklayers engaged in lining and  roofing in the'big dust chamber with  brick. More trestles to carry the rails  along which the cars of coke fluxes  will be run have been constructed.  Quantities of brick and lumber for  completing these have been received,  and the yard has been cleaned up iny  readiness to. receive fuel and other materials. Trestles are now being put up  at both ends of the upper ore bins, to  furnish more room for handling cars  delivering ore at the smelter. The  cast-iron columns and heavy top-  plates of the furnace have been placed  in position so that the putting together  of the water-jacket and other parts of  the furnace can now be undertaken at  any time.  wijat The* shines are doing.  As already stated the Old Ironsides  shipped 64 cars of ore during July and  the Knob Hill 31 cars. As the first  shipment was not made until July llth  the 95 cars sent out represent three  weeks' shipments. The delay in completion   of  spur lines to the ore bins  nnd in getting sufficient ore cars necessitated a temporary reduction early in  the month   in the number of men employed upon this group of  mines.    Below ground the month's work included  1*^0 feet run in further development of  the Knob Hill and 128  feet of   the adjoining Grey Eagle.    In the  Old Ironsides and "Victoria stoping ore and getting  it  ready  for shipment  occupied  most" attention.    On   the   surface  the  capacity of the electri. light plant was  increased  from  100 to 200 lights, and  lighting   of the  interior  workings of  the mines and of both sets of ore bins,  as well as of the many   buildings was  fully provided for.    With the 10-drill  air compressor plant shortly to arrive  are two 9xx2 hoisting'etigines.    One of  these   will  replace   the smaller hoist  now at the mouth of the Old Ironsides  No. 1 shaft, and the  foundations have  already   been   prepared   for   it.    The  smaller   hoist   will   be   taken   under  ground for use there.   The other larger  hoist will  be placed in the Knob Hill  main tunnel and the  station, near the  shaft, starting at about 350 feet in the  tunnel,   is   being   enlarged  to   make  room for  it.   A  40x80 frame building  is being erected at the mouth of No. 1  shaft, to house the new hoist and other  Old Ironsides plant.   A contract has  been entered into to put down switches  and otherwise give more room  on the  railway  spur  near  the Knob Hill ore  bins. A diamond drill is on the ground  to  be employed tor several months in  generally prospecting the outside claims  of the Miner-Graves group.    About 110  men   are at present  employed at the  Old   Ironsides   and   associated   mines  and altogether-there is a general air of  progressive activity about these properties.  .7 ,  .-",-  At the War Eagle the east crosscut  at the 100-foot level is now in 205 feet  from, the main shaft, and the west  crosscut 170 feet. A raise from the  end of the latter, for an air shaft, ran  into ore at 50 feet up. A drift was run  11 feet in this ore and then connection  ^^vf^^*)^��^-pixsspect-' hoi erpre**  viouslj- sunk 25 feet from the surface  in ore, so that practically some 50 feet  in- depth of ore occur in these western  -v"brkings. Assays of average samples  returned $21.60, with values principally  in copper. An upraise is to be made  from the end of the east crosscut to  connect with a prospect shaft in which  some nice looking copper ore was met  with. About 15 men are now on the  payroll at this mine. "  The raise from the 100-foot level of  the Snowshoe mine to the surface has  been completed and a station is now  being cut out on. the level, preparatory  to resuming", development work at the  200-foot level as soon as the new 70-  horse power boiler, daily expected,  shall have arrived at the mine and  been instelled. The crosscut tunnel,  -below-the-raihvay-line^was-last^-week  in 235 feet and was being further extended. At 180 feet in a crosscut has  been starte:!, to determine the width of  the ore at that point. There were 25  men on the pay roll with a probability  of an increase after additional power  shall have been provided.  WELLINGTON CAMP.  There is an increase in output from  Wellington camp to report for July,  the Golden Crown having sent out 36  cars of ore during the month. Work  in this mine is still restricted to stoping and hoisting ore from the 100-foot  level. The Winnipeg continues to  ship from three to four cars of ore per  week. No new development has yet  taken place at the 100-foot level, at  which a crosscut is being run with the  expectation of cutting the shoot of  good,grade ore occurring at the 50-foot  lovel. Ore is still being obtaind on  the 50-foot level and from the open cut  alongside the railway spur. There is  little change at the Athelstan, but  some nice ore is being opened up on  the J. and R. where a prospect shaft is  now being sunk. Nothing is being  done just now on the Hartford.  SUMMIT    CAMP.  The report lately published in several  newspapers that the ledge had been  cut on the Mountain View is incorrect.  The rock being passed through is more  or less mineralized, but no ore has yet  been encountered in the crosscut.  Work is being continued though, it being thought that there is ore not far  ahead. Better results have been obtained on -the R. Bell, where the' cross  cut from   the vertical shaft, at the 80-  '#  Wi  .���^ssssasege&gsgeg&e&tjc-tg^  City 61eaning$  *Sg-:6'g-g-S-e'g-6l-i  F. H.

The attendance was good and  the proceedings which included vocal  and instrumental music and dancing*,  were much enjoyed.  Forest fires have been prevalent in  the district lately. One got a good  hold on the mountain across the Kettle  river from Midway. Another burned  fiercely near Eholt for several days;  and still another in the woods between  Skylark camp and Phoenix.  A prospector named Fidele H. Gag  non, 37 years of age, died rather suddenly at his camp near Eholt last  Thursday. Dr. Kingston cei titled that  the cause of death was epileptiform  convulsions. The body was interred  at Greenwood on Saturday afternoon.  (Coutiimed on I'ag-e 3.)  W. H. Norris, of Midway, spent two  or three days in the city last week.  He has lately been kept very busily-  employed irrigating his orchard and  vegetable garden on the old Murray  ranch and as a result of his labors1  both fruit trees and vegetables are I  looking very well indeed and are making great growth.  It is announced that the marriage of  Miss Irene Haynes, second daughter  of the late Judge Haynes, of os��voos,  to Mr. R. H. Parkinson, P. L,. S., of  Fairview, will take place at Fairview  early next month. Miss Haynes was  very popular at Midway where she  lived with her mother, Mrs. Dowding-  until the latter left the district last  January. Since then the young lady  hrs resided at Fairview with her sister,.  Mrs. C. A. R. L,ambly. August 8  1900.  THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.

Premier Dunsmuir has already given  ' an earnest of his intention to observe  public opinion in the matter of restricting-Chinese and Japanese immigration. He has dismissed Chinese  employees from his own mines, but in  order that the public may have some  assurance that his political actions  should be aloiiy the same lines he  should discipline his supporters in the  railway committee. At a recent-meeting of the committee an amendment  to the bill incorporating: the Vancouver  & New Westminster railway was  - moved by Mr. Mclnnes. This amendment provided that - no person should  be employed in thc operation or construction of the railway who could not  read the act of incorporation in a  European-, .language or whose name  was uot on the register of voters, or  nnless he was a Caucasian  or Indian.  This amendment was of course intended jprhuarily to include 'Chinese  and Japanese from employment on thc  railway. The amendment was strongly  opposed by Mr. McPhillips of Victoria  and others. After a long discussion a  yote was taken and 'the amendment  was declared carried on the following-  division.  For���Messrs.

This vote is certainly a very instructing one and indicates very clearly who  are thc strong opponents of Chinese  and Japanese and who are, in spite of  their protestations to the contrary,  favorable to these undesirable im-  migrants.  ASSOCIATED BOARD OF TRADE.  The meeting of the Associated  Boards of Trade was most successful.  The Associated Boards represent the  business men of Kootenay and Yale  and the resolutions which were adopted  'in convention should have the earnest  consideration of thc government.  < liven wood is to be congratulated upon having the convention early next  year aiul The Times feels sure that the  representative business men who will  be present will receive a cordial welcome from the citizens.

All the cabinet, except Hon.  James Densmuir, the premier, came in  for gonerai reflections in which the  Esquimau and Westminster members  were dubbed lnossbacks.  After the rising of the House, Houston proceeded to town, and meeting  Mr. Rod Tolmie credited him with  canine decent, adding : "We'll fix you  when you come back to Kootenay."  Rod replied : "I'll fix you now,!.' and  proceeded to pommel him. A punch ou  the jaw knocked him out.

A municipality, like an individual,  can always see many excellent opportunities for the investment of money,  but the former is much less likely to  appreciate tie fact that it has gone as  far as the safety or profit line in investments, and should go no further  until it has realized on former outlays.  The facility with which "a municipality  can* goTh'to debt is apt to obscure this  truth. It is often obvious that a certain expenditure will increase the  value of some municipal property. But  it is not so obvious, though quite as  true, that the expenditure contemplated  must lessen the value of .all other  municipal .property. Every, addition  to the debt of a municipality lessens  the purchases iu the stores, lessens the  deinand for manufactured goods,'and  depresses propc*rtionately every line of  business. It is not the average burden,  but the total burden, that falls on the  productive activities of the municipality. If all the customers, of a certain  merchant should make a slight reduction in their weekly purchases it might  ruin his business. The average reduction might be slight, but the aggregate  enormous. And if this general reduction in purchases is due to -taxation  through excessive municipal debt, the  burden may' be sufficient to turn the  balance between progress and retro-  .R_____sloii_._���^    i^        .

August 8, 1900,  MYERS  GREEK   DISTRICT.  Review Tunnel Thought to Be Near-  ing Rich Ore.  Chesaw, Wash., Aug-. 8.���The Review tunnel his reached a length of  300 feet. The work for the past month  has been in ledge matter and they expect to strike rich ore in a very short  distance.  A full force of men is working at  the Crystal Butte anil the tunnel has a  large quantity of the rich ore for which  the Crystal Butte is famous. The mill  will be put in operation ag.iin as soon  as a sufliciet-t supply of ore is blocked  out. A new foreman was appointed  last week.  The Owl property, on wliich a wonderfully rich strike was made some  time ago,- continues to improve with  development. The ledge is about three  feet wide and can be traced for several  miles.  A party of eastern owners of the  Buckhorn is on its way here. The  work on the 400-foot.tunnel is progressing and the showings are good,  Last week 35 feet of work waa done  on the Ben Harrison. The ledge was  followed into the Yakima ground. The  property is one of the best in camp,  and-great things are expected.  The work on the Yakima is still being vigorously carried on. A 120-foot  shaft has been sunk and the vein is  solid and enormously la.ge. The ore is  the same as the Ben Harrison, the adjoining claim, and it is thought by  some that the two veins will unite at a  great depth.  The Kfeno was sunk 40 additional  feet this lust month and the ore taken  out assays very high. The ledge is  about live feet wide.  Six men are working od the L,one  Pine. They completed a SO-foot shaft  last mouth and hod the satisfaction of  seeing several stringers unite in a  good-sized vein, carrying high values  iu gold.  THE   STEAM   LAUNDRY  Successfully Opened and Now Running  Full Blast.  I'\ T. Abbott, the hustling manager  of the Greenwood Steam Laundry, is  ���an old railroad and newspaper man and  v a strong believer in advertising. He  believes in bringiiiy- his business to the'  attention of the public. Of course  thii'e is no connection between this  fact and an exciting runaway that took  place in Greenwood, Monday, but it.is  nevertheless true that' the good people  of the city were afforded a splendid opportunity of seeing how swiflM-he  laundry's waggon could go. Mr. Abbott  strictly maintained that. the horses  were alone responsible for the exhibition. They started from the laundry  came dashing down Deadwood street,  made a neat turn to Silver street and  were stopped by a telephone post near  Holden's paint shop. The damage to  the wagon was somewhat serious.  With such an exciting first day the  laundry is sure to be a sutccess. It is  entitled to snch distinction if a first-  class plant and good management  -count. - The plant is _the_bes_t _iu__th___  province. The power is supplied by a  30 horse power boiler and engine. The  plant comprises two double compartment and one single '. compartment  washers, a 1900 Nelson &. Kienter  mangle, a 28 inch centrifugal extraction dryer, starching machines, and  all the other appliances necessary in a  fully equipped laundry.  The laundry has sufficient capacity  to guarantees prompt and efficient service for all the orders furnished so that  there is no longer any excuse for patronizing Chinese laundries.  DEATH OF MRS.

THE    REENWOOi) WEEKtt TIMES.  ^W^^ri--',;' "a  ���  REVIEW OF  Continued from Page 1.  foot level, cut a 10 to 12-foot vein at  43 feet in from the shaft. This is being- drifted on in the expectation that  any day similar good ore to that showing in the open cut, higher up the hill,  may come in. This drift will give a  vertical depth of about 157 feet.  The B. C. mine maintained an average daily output of more than 60 tons  during July, the quantity of ore sent  to the smelter during the month having  totalled 1,900 tons. Ore was raised  from all three levels. The old shaft  house was taken down and a new  building 30x70, to include changing  room, store room and shaft house, is  being erected. The main shaft, now  down 272 feet, is to be sunk deeper  and other development work is to be  undertaken, besides raising sufficient  ore to provide for working expenses.  The cage will shortly be put in and  thereafter it will be practicable to raise  100 tons of ore per diem without interfering with the progress of development work.  DEADWOOD CAMP.  Two   specially    important   developments   took place   in   this   camp last  month,   viz.,   the   cutting   of   ore   in  quantity  at the   300-foot level of the  Mother L<ode mine and the striking of  a body of good ore in the Crown Silver  shaft.    Full accounts of both of these  occurrences   have  already   been published in the Times.    Additional information is to the effect that not only is  the crosscut   started   from the   north  drift at 100 feet from the Mother L<ode  shaft,  but still in ore,   of which some  20 feet have been  passed through at  .the time of writing, but the drift itself  entered ore at 120 feet and at 125 feet  shows much improvement.   These developments   at  the 300-foot level are  particularly   gratifying,  the   more so  since   the ore   in the crosscut is now  giving    average   assay   values   that  promise    excellent   smelter   returns.  Development work at the 200-foot level,  has not lately.disclosed anything new.  X.ast   week  the two 100-horse  power  boilers, with fittings,smoke*tacks, etc.,  to supply power for the larger compressor plant ordered last March, were received at the mine, but there has been  an unavoidable delay at the  manufactory in"shipping the compressor itself.  The main shaft of the Crown Silver  had by the first of this week reached a  ���depth of 145 feet.    The ore came in ac  87 feet in depth, so the shaft has now  been in ore for 58 feet.   The size of  thc ore foody'���_ has not yet been ascertained, but since the 4 feet 6 in by 7  feet  shaft is raJi in ore it is by no  means sraalL   1\beJviention is to continue sinking' to.3Q0 [Ee.e�� and to crosscut at the 150-foot level &r#&.,and afterwards at th,e 300-foot level.   "TOie cross-cut at the 150-foot level will likegj- be  .commenced three or four days fcenge.  ���Both the Crown Silver and the adjoining Sunset are owned by the Montreal  Boundary Creek Mining company.   Aj  car load of the ore was recently sent  from, the   Sutuset  mine to the Trail  smeiter,-��or the purpose of obtaining^  bulk  test of the g*�� met with a few  weeks ago in the crosscut at the 200-  foot level of this mine.  Other properties in Ueadwaod camp  at work during the aaaonth w,e*;e the  Buckhorn, Morrison, Greyhound., Qr&at,  Hopes, Marguerite and Gold Bug., but!  no developments of much importance  have been reported from these. The  payroll for the camp numbers about  120 men in all.  OTHER    CAMPS.  Of the two raises that were being  put up from the main tunnel of the  City of Paris and Lincoln, in While's  camp, one is completed and the other  well forward. The former was in ore  all the way and the latter will give access to a body of shipping ore known  to occur above. The output of ore was  .smaller during July than June, for  latterly only two teams were employed  in hauling ore to the Granby smelter,  but an increased production may> be  looked for after the development work  above referred to shall have been  finished. Work on the Majestic company's Lexington claim has for several  weeks past been chieily surface prospecting, the tunnel being very wet at  this time of year.  The Ethiopia is the only property at  present working in Long Lake camp,  excepting, of course, claims upon  which the customary assessments are  b.ing done. A crosscut is being run  at the 100-foot level of the Rambler, at  Pass creek, where indications are  favorable for a body of good ore being  shortly encountered. There is little  worthy of particular mention being  done in the other camps of the district.  who   arrived   in  the -city from Camp  McKinney last Wednesday evening, it  was ascertained that matters appear to  be progressing favorably at the Cariboo mine, which is at present the only  mine in Camp McKinney upon which  much work is being done right along.  The vein has been followed in the Cariboo company's Okanagan claim at the  400-foot   level   for 350  feet without a  break.   The ore,   too, has been satisfactory, both as  regards quantity and  quality.   The vein   runs   from six to  eight   feet  in width and carries good  gold   values.     Earlier   experience   at  shallower levels of the mine was lhat  the   ore   was  not continuous and the  breaks met  with in the vein added to  the cost of mining without proportionate results  in the gold yield being obtained.   Now  it  appears, the lead improves as  depth  is   gained,   so that a  profitable   future seems to be assured  to the mine.   Between 50 aud 60 men  are  regularly  employed,  this pay roll  being CampMcKinney's present mainstay.  It is probable that the Sailor Consolidated company, which now owns  the Minnehaha and other claims in the  vicinity as well as the Sailor, will  shortly resume work. There-is also  some talk of the Lemon company  starting up again before long.  Jay P. Graves and M. Yolen Williams  managing director, and mining superintendent, respectively, of the Miner-  Graves companies, have let a contract  to Smith Bros., contractors, of Greenwood, for the* erection of a business  block at Phoenix. The site is immediately opposite 'the Old Ironsides hotel  and the cost of the building will, il  is stated, be about $5,000.  'Albert Blair, a miner,' met with an  accident in the Golden Crown mine  last Sunday night. After taking out  of the bucket a lot of steelthat had been  sent up from below he was returning  by the ladder to the 100-foot level  when, thinking he had reached the  bottom of the ladder, he let go his hold.  He was still three or four feet froin the  station, though, so he fell heavily,  breaking the large bone of his right  leg about midway between the knee  and foot. Dr. BoncheVof Phoenix was  summoned to attend the unfortunate  man, and next ; morning Superin-  dent.W. J. Porter drove him down to  the Greenwood hospital, ' where he is  now under the care of the mine surgeons, Drs. Jakes and Oppenheimer.  MINERAL ACT.  . Certificate  of Improvements.

This system of  smelting gold, silver and copper ores  allows a high per cent of silica and  utilizes the waste heat of the furnace  to produce the hot blast, thereby largely decreasing the cost of smelting the  ores. Another great advantage and  saving is that the ore may be dumped  direct from the mine cars into the furnace bins. These advantages will allow the company to smelt at less expenses than by any other sj-stem and  ensure large dividends.  Mr. Laidlaw aud his solicitor, A. M.  Whiteside, went to Boundary Falls today in connection with a site for the  smelter. Negotiations are well advanced to secure an ideal site and Mr.  I/aidlaw expects to be able to make a  definite announcement in a   few   days.

Andrew L,aidlaw, of the firmof Mas-  sam & Laidlaw, arrived in the city  Monday evening and registered at the  Armstrong. He is accompanied by  Mrs. Laidlaw and will remain in the  district for several weeks. Mr. Laid-  _law will open an office in the city as  his company, the Standard Copper  company, intends beginning the erection of the pyritic smelter at an early  date.  Shortly after leaving here last winter Mr. Laidlaw went to Denver and  Leadville to watch the operations of  ^ytitic "s'melteVs" there and "also to see  the results of the tests made of Boundary ore. These tests were satisfactory in every way. In Colorado ore  running from $3.50 to $12 a ton is  treated at a profit. The conditions  here are still more favorable as the ore  is practically self-fluxing, and in any  event, lime can be secured here at a  lower cost than in Denver. Mr. Laidlaw is not at liberty to publish the assays and analyses of the ores from the  ���different properties, but the average  analysis per ton of ores shipped to  Leadville from the Mother Lode, B. C.  and Golden Crown mines, was as follows:  Gold at $20 per oz  $ 8:80  Silver at 60c per oz      1.22  Copper at 16c per lb., 4.4 percent   14.08  Total - .$24.10  Per Cent.  Iron '. :.27.1  Silica �� 28.4  Zinc  7  Sulphur .-. 17.2  Iu addition to the above assays and  analyses were obtained on ore from the  following properties: Oro Denoro,  Summit camp; Humming Bird, Brown's  camp; Pathfinder, Brown's camp; Lily  K. and Twins, Brown's camp; Winnipeg, Wellington camp; Strawberry,  Summit camp; Sunset, Deadwood camp;  Bab, Bunker Hill, Florence, Golden  Eagle, Brown's camp; Standard, Dead-  wood camp; Marguerite, Deadwood  camp; Phoenix, Deadwood camp;  Hesperus, Wellington camp; Morrison,  Deadwood camp; R. Bell, Summit  camp; Jim, Wellington, camp; Greyhound, Deadwood; Buckhorn, Dead-  wood camp; Hartford, Wellington  camp: Athelstan, Wellington camp and  others,    In every case   the   analysis  showed them to be well suited for  pyritic smelting, and in some instances  even better than the ores shipped to  Leadville. They are greatly superior  to the ores being treated regularly by  the pyritic process at Leadville which  will not run above % of one per cent  copper on an average and which will  not average better than $10. to the. ton.  A. B. -C. .Davis, manager of the  Standard Smelting Compay, Denver,  had this to say in reference to the  samples sent by Mr. Laidlaw :  "Replying to your interrogatory regarding the 10 samples of ore assayed  and analyzed by me, as to their adaptability to the pyritic or copper matting  process, will say that I encountered  nothing in any of said samples that  would render them objectional for said  process. As a matter of fact they are  highly desirable, and I might especially emphasize the fact regarding the R.'  Bell, t Marguerite. Hospertts and  Phoenix samples. With the possible  addition of a small per cent of lime  they would appear to be; self-fluxing.  The opinion is based on actual connection with pyritic or matte smelting for  the past three years in the capacity of  assayer, chemist and metallurgist of.  the Cleopatra smelter, at Ouray, Colorado, the Beuna Vista S. & R. Company, and the Boston Gold-Copper  Smelting Company at Leadville, Colorado."  With so much encouragement from  smelter*' 'returns^ and" 'owning-such-  promising properties as the Marguerite and Standard, Mr. Laidlaw had  no difficulty in interesting strong  financial men in Quebec in the Standard Copper "fcompany. The president  of the company is Wm. Price, a millionaire lumber merchant, Hon. Ade-  lard Turgeon, minister of colonization  and mines, Quebec, is vice president,  and H. T. Machin, assistant provincial  treasurer, is treasurer. The capital of  the company is $500,000, assessable to  par, and the registered office of the  company is in Greenwood. A few days  ago the company paid J. P. Harlan  and Dr. MacMartin, New York, $11,250,  the final payment on the Marguerite.  The order for the pyritic smelting  plant was on June 21st placed with .the  Denver Engineering- Works. The  plant has a guaranteed capacity of  200 tons daily, but Mr. Laidlaw has  made arragements for a power plant of  double that capacity and the building  will be erected for a 400 ton smelter.  Where is the new smelter going?  Grand Forks, of course, claimed it from  the start, but the Times is in the position to announce that the smelter o  the Standard Copper company will h*  erected on Boundary creek at no great  distance from Greenwood. The exact  location has not yet been determined,  but it will probably be Boundary Falls  about three miles below the city.  When the smelter is in running order  it will employ from 60 to 100 men. Its  operation will mean much for the city  of Greenwood.  The Standard Copper comoany,  limited, has by contract with the  patentees secured the exclusive right  to erect and operate the Standard Hot  and Cold Blast Pyritic furnaces in the  Geo. B. Mechem and family, were at  the Imperial this week. Mr. Mechem  and boys left for Denver, Col.  Word came today that the night  train from Spokane to Rossland ran  into a south bound freight and thajt  three men were killed while several  of the passengers were badly injured.  No particulars could be ascertained.  Mr. Hayden, vice-president of the  New York Central railway, his wife  and son made a pleasure trip over ihe  C. & W. on Monday, accompanied by  Captain Troup. Mr. Hayden travelled  in his private car, attached to the  regular. ' .     -  A. R. McKinlay, Toronto; Ed. Fcrg--  uson, Nelson; J. Prentice, Hamilton;  James Beveridge, Vancouver: W.

The mill  was working up to 5 o'clock Monday  afternoon and the men were around  the mill until 10:30 ut night. The fire  started about 11:30 and there being no  appliances for fighting fire, it was  soon burnt to the ground. The machinery is badly damaged but certain portions of it can be repaired anil again  used.  McPherson Bros, intend to rebuild  the mill at once.
