Much  is expected of it, and though at the  present time there is only one_r_ine,the  Mother Lode, that, can be classed in  the permanent shipping list it will not  be many months' before others will  have reached that desirable stage of  development. This-is more particularly true_ of the Morrison; the Crown Silver and Sunset mines, owned by the  Montreal and Boston Copper company;  and the Marguerite, the property of the  Quebec Copper company, limited. To  this list the Greyhound, Great Hopes,  arid' Buckhorn will eventually be added. The most important announcement to be made regarding this camp  is the early resumption of development  on' the Ah There, the property of a  local company. This means, now that  work is in progress on the Bntte- fraction, adjoining the Greyhound to the  north, that five contiguous claims will  be undergoing development simultaneously, on, what is generally conceded  to.be one continuous ore belt. Another good item of news was the bonding last week by Harry Shallenberger  of the Alameda. - The claim is owned  by Louis Bosshart, and' is believed to  be a. valuable piece of ground on account of-its joining to^the" south, the  Mother Lode group. Little development has been done but if Mr. Shallen.  berger is successful in lifting the bond  he expects to have a considerable force  at work exploiting the claim. Outside  'parties' have of recent date been paying, particnlar attention to Deadwood  and as there are yet quite a number of  good "claims lying idle, it offers exceptional advantages for the employment of capital- willing to take the  risks- of developing " piospects. In  years to come, providing the sanguine  expectations of owners of properties in  this camp are realized, it promises to  become a second Butte in its production of copper-gold ores. Then like  that famous camp every fraction and  idle piece of ground will be wanted  and the speculator of'today will reap  handsomely on his investment,"  especially will this be so of claims adjacent- and -surrounding-the- Mother  TOO BUS  TO WRITE  ADS.

Lode. It is natural to suppose that  from now on deals will be more frequent.  The Ah There claim" belongs to the  McRae Copper Mines, limited. . About  a year ago this company was brought  out; the claim-purchased and development started. After some- surface exploration, tracing ,the ore body of the  Greyhound onto this claim, a shaft  was started, a hoisting plant purchased  and then came the unavoidable discontinuance for-lack of funds. Since last  spring no further work was possible  until.now when the directors of. the  MicRae Copper company and the gentlemen at the head of the Western Copper company, owning the Greyhound,  got together and made an agreement  whereby the last company undertakes  to run a drift from, the 100-foot level of  the Ah There shaft to connect with  the Greyhound shaft.  On the Greyhound the shaft is down  130 feet, with a level penetrating the  ore body for 25 feet at a. depth of SS  feet, iu the shaft arid a second level  opened up at a depth of 100 feet. In  this last level the crosscut east was  run 40 feet and had just encountered  the ore body.on'.its dip,.when work was  withdrawn from that point and concentrated in obtaining further depth  in the shaft. Just now now the shaft  is being -lined and the station at the  100-foot enlarged. This completed the  shaft will be continued on down to the  300-foot level. It will be remembered  that in November a deal was consum-  ated -whereby William Price, of^Que-  bec, who is at the head of the Standard  Copper- company, secured control of  the shares of this company. The company is capitalized in the sum of $1,-  500,000. The present board "of directors, elected immediately after the sale  are:. President, Andrf-w Laidlaw; vice-  president, F. Oliver; secretary, E. F.  Massamfand-WilHam and H. E. Price  directors. The concern is in a splendid financial condition and much is ex-  oected from the Greyhound. -The  claim has one of the large surface ore  showings of Deadwood camp, being  400 feet in width, and opened up for a  distance of 1,300 feet in length by surface cuts. .    *  Adjoining the Greyhound to the  north is the Butte fraction owned by a  syndicate - of Greenwood __ operators.  There.has been some surface wofk~performed sufficient 'at least to demonstrate the continuity of the Greyhound  ledge, if it may be so called. "Work  was started on this claim last week.  -The next claim north is the Great  Hopes. The development is in charge  of Fred Oliver. A force of men have  been running a crosscut 'tunnel for  some time which has penetrated the  hill 541 feet. From time to time  stringers of orejiave been cut through  but its objective, thebig. showing disclosed on the surface and partially developed by shaft, has not been reached.  -The last claim on this belt under development is the Marguerite, which,  with a fraction, belongs to the Quebec  Copper company, -limited, with registered office in this city. The head  office of the company, is in Quebec, the  board of directors being composed of  wealthy manufacturers' and bank  directors .of that city.. Andrew Laid.-  law is the resident managing director  and John Massam, superintendent.  The Marguerite is credited with having  some of the richest ore in the camp.  As an indication of how the ore runs  the following figures will prove interesting. In copper -the average of 20  assays gave 3*81 per cent, giving a  value, figuring copper at 16 cents per  pound, of $12.28. An average of 21 assays for silver gave 3 1-5 ounces, valued  at $2.04, and the gold contents of 23  samples averaged 2.88, or $5.75. The  total average gave 520.07 per ton in all  values. The present company started  active operations last June, in  thorough prospecting the property and  in the sinking of a new permanent  working shaft. This shaft, a double  conipartment, is located midway between the Nos. 1 and 2 veins, on the  east side of the claim. It is down 100  feet. At this depth a level was opened  up and a crosscut run east, to a rich  ore body containing chalcopyrite in a  a.heavy magnetic iron gangue,.a distance of 90 feet. From this ore some  extremely high values have been obtained. The west crosscut is in 65 feet  mostly iron sulphide of a low grade.  On the third vein on the extreme west  side of the claim, a crosscut tunnel  has been started to tap the ledge at  depth. Recently an order was placed  with the local branch of the Jenckes  Machine company for a 25-horse power  hoist and engine, a No. 5 Cameron  pum, hose, wire rope, cars, bucket and  the. necessary complement of tools.  After the installation of this plant development  will  be  more rapid than  heretofore,-arid-it is the expectation of  the management to be in a position to  shortly place the mine on a shipping  basis.  In- previous articles the Times has  notedat length the.development of the  Mother Lode���the banner mine of the  camp. For four years it has been undergoing a systematic and continuous  era of development and today has  i eached the stage where big stopes are  being opened up and it is nearly in a  position to turn out 600 tons and more  each 24 hours, as will be needed when  the.smelter is blown in. The mine is  developed by a main working shaft  now down 325 feet, with levels at the  200 and 300 respectively. On the 200-  foot level a big orcchute has been  opened up for. a distance of 400 feet in  length and proved by crosscuts to be  from 80 to 100 feet in width. On the  300-foot level considerable development  has been done and a fine ore chute, if  anything richer than that found in the  No. 1 level, exploited. At the present  time considerable -additional machinery, which, when finally in working order, will give the mine the distinction of : having the . largest and  most up-to-date plant in the district, is  bejng installed. Included in this new  plant is a cross-compound condensing  Corless-valve Ingersoll-Sergeant air  compressor, with a capacity from 35 to  40 drills; four large boilers, a hoist  and a complete outfit of minor appliances necessary for working the  mine on a most economical and profitable scale. When this" is jdone the  shaft will be cartied on down to the  500-foot level. To date the mine has  sent*down to the Greenwood smelter  something over 4,435, tons of ore.  Other properties in Deadwood camp  under development are the Morrison  in the "extreme north end, and the  Buckhorn in the' extreme south. The  superintendent of the former mine,  Fred Oliver, is at present in Spokane,  but has announced that by the end of  the year** a complete report of development will be given out to the shareholders, as by then he hopes that  the Morrison will have been added to  the shipping list.   _.  A. E. Bielenberg has a force on the  Buckhorn. Work has for some time  been prosecuted in the 100-foot level,  where a crosscut south is being driven  to encounter an ore body, some 160 feet  of .work having been- done in this  direction.* No work is, bei ng attempted  at the 200-foot level for the present.  MINING NOTES.  A.   E. 'Bielenberg"has  bonded the  Durango claim in Deadwood camp.  At a meeting of the directors of the  Winnipeg Mines, Limited, held at the  office of the-company,'at the mine,  Wellington camp, Friday evening, it  was decided to notify the shareholders  of the levy of the first assessment of  one cent per share.  The Ingersoll - Sergeant company  have -sold to Mr. Keffer, a three-drill  Ingersoll-Sergeant compressor foi use  on the'No. 7 property in Central camp.  The shipment was made from Rossland stock and has already been delivered at Greenwood.  W. J. ''Porter, one of the heaviest  shareholders iri the Brandon and  Golden Crown Mining company,limited  is at present in Brandon, Manitoba,  where he went at the request of some  of the directors to lay before the resident stockholders of that city a plan  for securing additional capital to continue the development of the property,  which has been closed down for some  weeks.  L. M. Rice, well known in this city  in connection with the construction of  the Columbia & Western railway, has  issued from his Seattle office a map of  thc camps of the Boundary Creek district. ..The map is a large one, and  from the author's exceptional opportunities in surveying thc country, is a  sufficient guarantee of its accuracy.  The surveyed claims arc given as also  the general topography of the distr ict.  H. A. King &.Co., are the distributing  agents for Greenwood.  The past week a far livelier interest  has been manifested in shares of local  companies than for some considerable  time past. Sales of Morrison at 2_4 to  3 cents were numerous. Winnipeg was  in demand both by local buyers and in  the east. The "straightforward manner in which the directors are going  about to place the mine on a substantial -footing is evidentally meeting  with the approval of many who have  faith in ultimate outcome of the property under good management. The  consequence is that the market has felt  a buoyoncy in^the demand, for these  shares, prices ranging ' from 4 to 4%.  cents. Waterloo is the only Camp McKinney stock traded in, at a price  around 2% cents. There is a generally  credited report that the winze being  sunk from the 65-foot level is in a good  body of quartz. However there seems  to be an evident intention by the  parties "in. the know" not to take the  general public into their confidence,  with the off chance perhaps that holders will loosen up and that they may  be able to "reap a good harvest when  the-.���'bulls", at the Spokane end feel  like pulling the wires for a general  boom. The splendid showing being  made in thc Review mine,in the Myers  creek -camp, has justified interest in  this -property and some trading has  been done at 5)4 cents. From all indications there should be a demand in  the near future for shares in several  companies operating in Deadwood  camp.such as the McRae Copper Mines,  owning the Ah There, the Deadwood  Copper, company, owning the St. Lawrence and others, when work shall  again be started on these claims.  SUMMIT HOTEL BURNED  Loss Over $12,000 with Insurance of  ,    $7,500.  Summit City suffered by a disastrous  fire last Thursday evening in the destruction of the Summit hotel, owned  by James McNeil. The building was  a substantial two-story frame, plastered throughout and with its furnishings and stock of liquors was valued; at.  over $12,000. With the exception of a  few household effects everything was  burned. The fire is believed to have  originated in the hood over the kitchen .  range,, but this is not certain, as when  it was fire noticed by some of the  guests, at 8.30 p. m��� the kitchen was  all in a blaze. There being no fire  fighting apparatus of any description  at hand the few occupants of the hotel-  and nearby neighbors devoted all their  energies to saving what was possible.  At the time of the fire Mr. McNeil was  visiting at Eholt and was** appraised of -.  the fact by his attention being called  to the appearance of a big conflagration in the direction of Summit City.  On his arrival the bulding was burnt "-"  to the ground. Fortunately Mr. Mc- , **  Neil carried considerably insurance  amounting to $7,500, divided among  the following companies, the Imperial,  Lancashire, Cauadian and , American.  R. S. Day, manager in the province  for _ the Imperial, was ' up at Summit  this week investigating the fire ��.nd  adjusting the loss.  J. R. Portet, insurance agent of this  city, was among the'guests, he having <  gone to see Mr. McNeil with a view to j  obtaining a renewal of one of the  policies which only had a few more  days to run before its expiration. Instead of getting a renewal premium  his company will be forced to pay out  a considerable sum as its proportion..of _"���-.. ~  the loss.  II  I-  'i>  I  I  THE CITY COUNCIL.  Mayor Hardy presided at the council  meeting Monday night and 'Aid. Ban-  nerman, Sutherland, Galloway, Crop-  ley and Sullivan were present. W. E.  Hodges was appointed auditor for the  eity. Leamy & Gray were paid $250  without prejudice as to their account  against the city. A by-law reducing  hotel licenses to S300 a year was read a  first and second time. Mr. Winnett's  oharga against M. Eildermann, city .  driver, was further considered by council but no definite action was taken.  A by-law was introduced to increase  the fee for peddlers and transient  traders up to the limit, viz., $500 per  annum. The by-law in reference to  laundries will be amended ro as to  name a section where laundries will be  allowed.   P0UL1MER-NELS0N  i  i  I  Yesterday evening, in the parlor of  the Hotel Windsor, H. E. Poulinier  was united in marriage to Miss  Emma Nelson, of Ephraim, Utah.  Rev. H. B. Balderson, pastor of the  Methodist church, officiated afthe ceremony. The bride arrived on yesterday afternoon's train from Ephraim,  Utah. Harry is a well known pros - ���  pector and miner, and his wedding  came as a mild surprise to even his  most intimate associates. The young  couple will reside in one of the cottages  at the Mother Lode mine where the  groom is an employee.  A DENIAL.  In a letter just received from Mr.  W. E. Hodges, of Greenwood, that  gentleman sends nie a clipping from  the "Vancouuer News-Advertiser,which  I enclose. I absolutely deny having  made the statements Sir.

Nothing will help to allay the senseless race cry quicker, or at any rate,  nothing^will destroy its effect so soon,  as an understanding of the fact���and  it is a fact���that the government's majority is not dependent on Quebec.  Even were it so Quebec, has as much  right to make her voice heard and her  influence felt as any other province,  but if Quebec were left out of the cal-  ���culation altogether, there would still  be a Liberal majority. But it must  never be forgotten, that the apparent  hostile majority in Ontario is entirely'  due to the Tory gerrymander, for by  their own admission the opposition has  lost 10,000 on the popular vote since  1895. When a fair redistribution on  the basis of the next census is made  and it will be made before another  election, the fact will be patent to the  most casual observer that, when able  to give an honest verdict, Ontario is  Liberal like every other province in the  Dominion.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  Municipal Taxpayer draws attention to the condition of the cemetery.  The city should see'that all the ground  set apart for cemetery purposes is  properfly fenced. *"  The following is taken from a letter  of Dr. Jakes, published in the last issue  of the Greenwood Miner:  "Furthermore, I may state that the  list of names to compose the committee, as, published'by Mr. Ross, does not  correspond with the original list presented to him by the friends of compromise, but reads as amended by  him." V.  The list of names to. compose the  committee was embodied in a communication signed by Duncan Ross  and presented by the friends of compromise to Dr. Jakes. That com-  mnnication is in Times office and any  ratepayer is at liberty to compare it  with the list published and he will find  that no amendment has been made.  deferred until the city is in a better  financial position. I confidently believe that by the exercise of wise judgment, the finances of the city can be  placed upon such a sound footing that  necessary public works can be constructed without placing excessive burdens upon the present taxpayers.  The credit of the city must be restored  and maintained. Litigation should  be avoided and I am in favor of au  amicable settlement with tliose who  have just claims against the corporation. ������' ��� '  If G reeuwood is to occupy the prominence to which she is entitled by natural advantage," the city must be  brought into the closest touch with the  surrounding mining camps. During  1901 every effort should be made to  secure the construction of the tramway  without imposing additional burdens  on tlie ratepayers beyon:! those to  which they are already pledged.  The strength of every city, particularly one situated in the heart of a  mining district, lies in its workingmen  and its future depends upon them. I  am in favor of recognizing their claims  to proper protection. I believe eight  hours should constitute aleg-al day?s  work and this . principal should be  adopted by the municipality. Generally  speaking, I am in favor of  municipal work being carried on by  day labor, but in the' event of contract  work being necessary, I would insist  that contractors should pay the current  wage. . ��� -y  ��� . .'  I am opposed to the employment of  Chinese and the encouragement- of  Chinese immigration and any power  granted to the corporation by the  Municipal Clauses Act should be exercised to the fullest extent in restricting  their employment in the city.  The mayor's time should be devoted  to the work of the city,. I am not rich  enough to do this without compensa_.  tion and if elected T will expect a sufficient sum" to properly represent the  city without loss to myself...  The first of each year, estimates  should be prepared giving each section  .of the city an equitable share of the expenditure and these estimates should  be religiously followed.

To The Editor:���As you are an aspirant lor the position of chief magistrate of this city, and apparently very  conversant with the duties of the present civic administration,can you kindly  inform me, through the columns of  your paper, the names of the aldermen who constitute the cemetery com-  tee. My reason for asking is because  I desire to draw their attention to the  fact: "That in all common charity"  is their duty to see that some protection (in the shape of a log fence at  least) should be constructed arouud  that portion of the cemetery in which  is supposed to be laid the remains of  those unfortunates which the pale of  civilization debars the privileges of  consecrated rest. I observe in that  plot one unfortunate mound under the  sod of which rests a fallen woman and  over which dogs, cattle and wild beasts  may roam at will, and I would suggest,  that as thc city pays for the service of  a caretaker, he be instructed to devote suflicient time to remedy the negligence.  I do not claim to assert that thc city  is entitled to follow my suggestions,  but the Good Book says .that "Jesus  Christ died to save sinners," and  surely the cemetery committee of the  city of Greenwood, B. C, can condescend to protect from the devastation  of beasts the remains of a poor outcast. Municipal Ratepayer.

Concentration of ores by the  \ Use of Oil  ) :   5  I  FULLY DEALT WITH  )  In a Paper by Chas. M. Rolkef, Well  /       'Known Mininir Engineer, Who  I investigated the Process.  y  "Cast week thc Times dre\r attention  to a new process of concentration by  oil. Through thc courtesy of Mr. A.  L#. McEwen, a mining engineer well  known here, but at present in Sumptcr,  Ore., we publish an article recently  published in the Mining Journal. The  Journal says:  "A paper on this subject was recently read before the Institute of Mining and Metallurgy in London by Mr.  Chiis. M. Rolker, a well known mining" engineer, who has been engaged  by an influential mining firm to,report on the Elmore concentration process as in use at the Glasdir mines,  'North Wales. On the report of Mr.  Rolker, a small company was formed,  called the Ore Concentration Syndicate, limited, of 4 Bishopgate street,  (within) London, E. C, for the purpose  of continuing experiments with various  classes of ores and introducing the  process, where adaptable, into actual  operation. The following facts will  interest a, great many mining men as  opening a new method of treatment to  certain ores which yield unsatisfactory  results by ordinary concentratio'n machinery.  "The -process   is  based ..on a very  curious property of oil and greasy substances  of   attaching  themselves   to  metallic. and/ bright mineral surfaces  in prefereace'to rocky or earthy ones.  Experiments,and some resulting pat-  ' ents. have- shown .that thin oils will  . float off metallic surface minerals from  ��� a crushed rock containing them, but it  ' was  found ''impossible either by dry,  '.damp, or wet treatment of such ores to��  prevent an impracticable waste of oil  by its attachment to the waste largely,  as" well as the concentrates.   A step in  another direction was made at the De-  Beers  diamond  mines,    where thick  grease is   used  on a shaking inclined  surface,'������over' -which- the-broken rock  passes,   and  to which any diamonds  present attach   themselves   and   are  picked off at intervals. ,'  -  "Mr Elmore hit on the idea of mechanically mixing a thick residual oil  with a flowing stream of pulp from a  stamp battery or other wet pulverizer.  He found by experiment that the use  of a helical trough within a revolving  cylinder furnished with baffle plates at  intervals, produced so thorough an  agitation of oil and water as to insure  contact between the oil and minerals  to which it is capable of attachment.  Experiments on the length of cylinder  necessary to get a high "extraction  then led to the adoption of three cylinders, one above the other, driven by  worm gearing. After trying many  methods of separating the oil -from its  collected minerals, it was found that  -this could be done most._perf_ectly_b.v a  centrifugal hydro extractor, which  yields- the concentrates in an almost  dry condition, and returns the oil free  from mineral, to re-circulate in the  cylinders. The novelty of the Elmore  process consists, therefore, in the intermixture of oil with crushed ore and  water, and then separating the oil  from the collected minerals by a  specially constructed centrifugal separator. As stated already, previous attempts to use oil had been mechanical  and commercial failures while the  present improvement has not only been  fully worked out in detail,-but .is now  established on on a regular commercial  scale by the treatment of 50 tons of ore  per day at the Glasdir mines, in North  Wales, where about 5,000 tons have already been crushed and the concentrates sold to smelters.  "At the Glasdir mines the plant consists of two five-feel Huntington mills,  which crush wet to 30 mesh. The pulp  flows direct to two sets of three each  revolving cylinders, entering the upper one, where it is- joined by a small  stream of thick ���mineral oil, and passing out at the lower end of the cylinder, when it drops into a small pointed  settler box. The water and ore pass  out at the bottom of the settler into  the second cylinder, and the oil with  its collected mineral flows off the top  to the hydro-extractor for separation of  the concentrates. In the second cylinder oil is again addedj the discharge  again passes to a settler, and .the pulp  from its bottom_to the third cylinder  for the addition of more oil. The final  discharge of the third cylinder goes to  a much larger and' more perfect settling .box to fully float off all the oil.  The oil from the three settlers passes  to a hydro extractor with a solid basket  and projecting flange above. The  mineral  packs  on   the inside of the  basket, and the oil overflows by the top  arouud the flange, to be pumped again  into circulation through the mixing  cylinders. When- the. centrifugal machine is fully charged with packed concentrates r it is" stopped and these are  dropped through a: large opening in  the bottom of the pan, and are treated  to a further draining with addition of  hot water in a'.'.second centrifugal. ma-.  chine, this one being.'.filled with a perforated basket.  "The ore successfully worked at the  Glasdir mine consists"of a-fiue impregnation of iron and copper pyrites in: a  hard black slate. It contains, on the  average, as worked, only about one per  cent of .copper and one d-wt.'of gold,  per .-.ton. An elaborate and expensive  concentration mill was "'erected by a  German firm- to treat this ore. and it  was a complete-failure, both, mechanically and commercially. The tailings  were fullof fine float mineral, and the  concentrates were imperfectly cleaned.  It was following the failure of this  concentration mill that the oil process  was/developed by successive, experiment, and having in this case proved  the advantages of the method over  well known concentration machinery,  trials have since been made on a  variety of ores from different parts of  *.he world to determiue new fields "for  its application.  "Some copper ores from South Africa  which have been very wastefully  treated in the past, owing to difficulty  in concentration, caused by the presence of magnetite, have been in small  tests enriched from 6 per cent to 40 per  cent of copper. Another copper ore  from Mexico, where the presence of  heavy garnets interferes greatly with  concentration, has given very promising results by yielding a concentrate  of 23 per cent copper from mill'tailings.  In both these cases the final tailings  after the oil process was quite poor.  Free gold seems easily caught by the  oil even when quite coarse, although  there may be no advantage on "such  material over existing processes. Some  of the copper ores from the Mount  Iliyell district seem well adapted to the  treatment, and experiments with tel-  luride ores from Western Australia are  being made which appear very promising."'  "Generally, it would seem that the  process has a future in cases of difficulty by water concentration arising  from brittleness or lightness of  minerals to be separated,or from heavy  gangue accompanying the minerals,  such as have spar, magnetite, garnets,  rhodonite, etc It does not seem to  matter how finely the mineral breaks;  if it is a mere scum on the water surface, contact with,the oil* in "agitating  cylinders seems to be insured. , Where  water is scarce the process has a great  advantage, for the rock can*be crushed  with the minimum quantity for a concentration plant, and by settling can  be used over and over again, a little  muddiness of the returned water being  no disadvantage. In practice it has  been found at Glasdir that very little  attention is required for the control of  the process, that considerable variations .in quantity, of oil supply and  temperature are allowable, and unskilled labor can be made available.  The plant is much simpler than that  of an ordiuary concentration mill, is  not expensive to install, is subject to  little or no wear or tear, and can be  put below any wet crushing machinery.  Material as coarse as 20 mesh can be  concentrated.  - "As regards the cost of treatment,  this may be taken as the same as equal  in labor to equivalent" concentration  plant (the cost of crush ing-is,of course,  common to both),, plus the cost of oil  and any royalty for use of process.  The loss of oil has been found to be in  Wales, one and one-forth gallons per  ton of ore treated, and may be taken as  varying according to ore and other  conditions be. ween one and two gallons per ton.

Nothing will helo to allay the senseless race cry quicker, or at any rate,  nothing'-vill destroy its effect so soon,  as an understanding- of the fact���and  it is a fact���that the government's majority is not dependent on Quebec.  Even were it so Quebec, has as much  right to make her voice heard and her  influence felt as any; other province,  but if Quebec were left out of the cal-  ������ dilation altogether, there would still  be a Eiberal majority. But it must  never be forgotten, that the apparent  hostile majority in Ontario is. entirely  due to the Tory gerrymander, for by  their own admission the opposition has  lost 10,000 on the popular vote since  189S. When a fair redistribution ou  the basis of the next census is made  and it will be made before another  election, the fact will be patent to the  most casual observer that, when able  to give an honest verdict, Ontario is  Liberal like every other province in the  Dominion. ..,' ;   :  EDITORIAL, NOTES.  Municipal Taxpayer draws attention to the condition of the cemetery.  The city should see'that all the ground  set apart for cemetery purposes is  properfly fenced. *  The following is taken from a letter  of Dr. Jakes, published in the last issue  of the Greenwood Miner:  "Furthermore, I may state that the  list of names to compose the committee, as published'by Mr. Ross, does not  correspond with the original list presented to him by the friends of compromise, but reads as amended by  him." ;.  The list of" names to. compose the  committee was embodied in a communication signed by Duncan Ross  and presented by the friends of compromise to Dr. Jakes. That communication is in Times office and any  .ratepayer is at liberty to compare it  with the list.published and he will find  that no amendment has been made.  THE CEMETERY.  To *HE Editor:���As you are an aspirant for the position of chief magistrate of this city, and apparently very  conversant with the duties of the present civic administration,can you kindly  inform me, through the columns of  your paper, the names of the aldermen who constitute the cemetery com-  tee. My reason for asking is because  I desire to draw their attention to the  fact: "That in all common charity"  is their duty to see that some protection (in the shape of a log fence at  least) should be constructed around  that portion of the cemetery in which  is supposed to be laid the remains of  those unfortunates which the pale of  civilization debars the privileges of  consecrated rest. I observe in that  plot one unfortunate mound under the  sod of which rests a fallen woman and  over which clogs, cattle and wild beasts  may roam at will, and I would suggest,  that as the city pays for the service of  a caretaker, he be instructed to devote sufficient time to remedy the negligence. '  I do not claim to assert that thc city  is entitled to follow my suggestions,  but the Good Book says-that "Jesus  Christ died to save sinners," and  surel3* the cemetery committee of the  city of Greenwood, B. C, can condescend to protect from the devastation  of beasts the remains of a poor outcast. Municipal Ratepayer.  MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. 1901-  To the Electors of the Municipality of  the City of Greenwood:  Ladies and Gentlemen:���I am a  candidate for the office of mayor at the  approaching municipal election and respectfully solicit your votes and influence. During the campaign I will  have opportunities of explaining my  views at length. Briefly stated, I am  in favor of the following-:  The present state of city finances  and the stringency of the money market make it impossible to enunciate  a well defined policy of public improvements. An adequate system of waterworks is necessary aud also some suitable plan of sewering the city, but  these and other improvements must be  deferred until thc city is in a better  financial position. I confidently believe that by the exercise of wise judgment, the finances of the city can be  placed upon such a sound footing that  necessary public works can be constructed without placing excessive burdens upon the present taxpayers.  The credit of the city must be restored  and maintained. Litigation should  be avoided and I am in favor of au  amicable settlement with tliose who  have just claims against the corporation. ���    ��-    ���  ���  If Greenwood is to occupy the prominence to which she is entitled by natural advantage,' the city must be  brought into the closest touch with the  surrounding* mining camps. Dining  1901 every effort should be made to  secure the construction of the tramway  without imposing additional burdens  ou th"e ratepayers beyoml those to  which they are already pledged.  The strength of every city, particularly one situated in fhe heart of a  mining district, lies in its workingmen  and its future depends upon them. I  am in favor of recognizing their claims  to proper protection. I believe eight  hours should constitute a legal day's  work and this principal should be  adopted by the municipality. Generally  speaking, I am in favor of  municipal work being carried on by  day labor, but in the" event of contract  work being necessary, T would insist,  that contractors should pay the current  wage. ,     *  I am opposed to the employment of  Chinese and tlie encouragement- of  Chinese immigration and any power  granted to the corporation by the  Municipal Clauses Act should be exercised to the fullest extent in restricting  their employment in the city.  The mayor's time should be devoted  to the* work of the city.. I am not rich  enough to do this without compensa_.  tion and if elected 'I will expect a suf-.  ficient sum* to properly represent the  city without loss to myself..  The first of each year, estimates  should.be prepared giving each section  .of the city an equitable share of the expenditure ��� and* these estimates should  be religiously followed.  I am your obedient servant,'  -- Duncan Ross.  CHURCH NOTICE  THE   BANK   OF  Roman Catholic church, Greenwood,  B.

THB GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES  December 20,  1900.  Concentration of ores by the  Use of Oil  FULLY DEALT WITH  In a Paper, by Ciias. M. Rolker, Well  ���Known Mining Engineer, Who  Investigated the Process.  X.ast week thc Times drew attention  to a ne\v process of concentration by  oil. Through the courtesy of Mr. A.  ** Iy. Mc_3*-veii, a ruining- engineer well  known here, but at present in Sumpter,  Ore., we publish an article recently  published in the Mining Journal. The  Journal says:  "A paper on this subject was recently read before the Institute of Mining and Metallurgy in London by Mr.  Chits. M. Rolker, a well known mining' engineer, who 'has been engaged  by an influential mining firm to report on the Elmore concentration process as in use at the Glasdir mines,  North Wales. On the report of Mr.  Rolker, a small company was formed,  called the Ore Concentration Syndicate, Lfimited, of 4 Bishopgate street,  {within) London, E. C, for the purpose  of coutiuuing experiments with various  classes of ores and introducing the  process, where adaptable, into actual  operation. The following facts will  interest a great many mining men as  ��� opening a new method of treatment to  certain ores-which yield unsatisfactory  results by-ordinary concentration machinery.  . "The -process   is  based _on  a very  "curious"property of oil and greasy substances   of   attaching   themselves   to  metallic arid, bright mineral surfaces  in preference'to rocky or earthy ones.  Experiments and some resulting pat-  -7,en*^'have";rshoyfa that thin oils will  '. float off metallic surface minerals from  y7.aiCtfushed rock containing them, but it  V.was"':'fdu'nd'"impossible either  by dry,  damp, or wet treatment of such ores to*  "prevent an impracticable waste of oil  by its attachment to the waste largely,  as1 well as the concentrates.    A step in  another direction was' made at the De-  Beers .diamond  mines,    where   thick  grease < is   used  on a shaking inclined  surf ace,'* ���over' -which- the broken  rock  passes,   and   to which  any diamonds  present  attach   themselves  and   are  picked off at intervals.  "Mr Elmore hit on the idea of mechanically inixinga thick residual oil  with a flowing stream of pulp from a  stamp battery or other wet pulverizer.  He found by , experiment that the use  of a helical trough within- a revolving  cylinder furnished with baffle plates at  intervals, produced so thorough an  agitation of oil and water as to insure  contact between the oil and minerals  to which it is capable of attachment.  Experiments on the length of cylinder  necessary to get a high extraction  then led to the adoption of three cylinders, one above the other, driven by  worm gearing. After trying many  methods of separating the oil from its  collected minerals, it was found that   this coi_ld be done most perfectly by a  centrifugal, hydro extractor," which"  yields' the concentrates in an almost  dry condition, and returns the oil free  from mineral, to re-circulate in" the  cylinders. The novelty of the Elmore  process consists, therefore, in the intermixture of oil with crushed ore and  water, and then separating the oil  from the collected minerals by a  specially constructed centrifugal separator. As stated alrea'dy, previous attempts to use oil had been mechanical  and commercial failures while the  present improvement has not only been  fully worked out in detail, but .'is now  established on on a regular commercial  scale by the treatment of SO tons of ore  per day at the Glasdir mines, in North  Wales, where about 5,000 tons have already been crushed and the concentrates sold to smelters.  "At the Glasdir mines the plant consists of two five-feet Hnntingtot. mills,  ���which crush wet to 30 mesh. The pulp  flows direct to two sets of three each  revolving cylinders, entering the upper one, where it is ��� joined by a small  stream of thick 'minera-oil, and passing out at the lower end of the cylinder, when it drops into a small pointed  settler box. The water and ore pass  ��� out at the bottom of the settler into  the second cylinder, and the oil with  its collected mineral flows off the top  to the hydro-extractor for separation of  the concentrates. In the second cylinder oil is" again addedythe discharge  again passes to a settler, and..the pulp  from its bottom.-to the third cylinder  for the addition of more oil. The final  discharge of the third cylinder goes to  a much larger and'more perfect settling box to fully float off all the oil.  The oil from the three settlers passes  to a hydro extractorcwith a solid basket  and projecting flange above. The  mineral packs  on   the inside of the  basket, and the oil overflows by the top  arouudthe flange, to be pumped again  into circulation through thc mixing  cylinders. When the. centrifugal machine is fully charged with packed concentrates-it is stopped and these are  dropped through a large opening in  the bottom of the pan, and are treated  to a further draining with addition of  hot water in a second centrifugal -machine, this one being filled with a perforated basket.  "The ore successfully worked at the  Glasdir mine consists of a fine impregnation of iron and copper pyrites in a  hard black slate. It contains, on the  average, as worked, only about one per  cent of copper and one dwt. of gold  per ton. An elaborate and expensive  concentration mill was 'erected by a  German firm to treat this ore, and it  was a complete failure, both mechanically and commercially. The tailings  were full of fine float mineral, and the  concentrates were imperfectly cleaned.  It .was following the failure of this  concentration mill that the oil process  was developed by successive experiment, and having in this case proved  the advantages of the method over  well known concentration machinery,  trials have since been made on a  variety of ores from different parls of  "lhe world to determine new fields 'for  its application.  "Some copper ores from South Africa  which have been very wastefully  treated in the past, owing to difficulty  in concentration, caused by the presence of magnetite, have been in small  tests enriched from 6 per cent to 40 per  cent of copper. Another copper ore  from Mexico, where the presence of  heavy garnets interferes greatly with  concentration, has given very promising results by yielding a concentrate  of 23 per cent copper from miirtailings.  In both these cases the final tailings  after the oil process was quite poor.  Free gold seems easily caught by the  oil even when quite coarse, although  there may be no advantage on such  material over existing processes. Some  of the copper ores from the Mount  Lyell district seem well adapted to the  treatment, and experiments with tel-  luride ores from Western Australia are  being made' which appear very promising-'"  ���-Generally, it would seem that the  process has a future in cases of difficulty by water concentration arising  from brittleness or lightness of  minerals to be separated,or from heavy  gangue accompanying the minerals,  such as have spar, magnetite, garnets.  rhodonite, etc. It does not seem to  matter how finely the mineral breaks ;  if it is a mere scum on the water surface, contact with the oil' in agitating  cylinders seems to be insured. Where  water is scarce the process has a great  advantage, for the rock canbe crushed  with the minimum quantity for a concentration, plant,' and by settling can  be used over and over again, a little  muddiness of the returned water being  no disadvantage. In practice it has  been found at Glasdir that very little  attention is required for the control of  the process, that considerable variations .in quantity of oil supply and  temperature are allowable, and unskilled labor can be made available.  The plant is much simpler than that  of an ordinary concentration mill, is  not expensive to install, is subject to  little or no wear or tear, and can be  put below any wet crushing machinery.  Material as coarse as 20 mesh can be  concentrated.  - "As regards the cost of treatment,  this may be taken as the same as equal  in labor to equivalent" concentration  plant (the cost of crushing is,of_course,  common to both), plus the cost of oil  and any royalty for use of process.  The loss of oil has been found to be in  Wales, one and one-forth gallons per  ton of ore treated, and may be taken as  varying according to ore and other  conditions belween one and two gallons per ton.  "By thc Elmore process, at the  Gladir mine, between 70 and 80 per  cent of the values are saved."  Perfect healer of skin diseases and  piles. Cure guaranteed by Miller  Bros., druggists, 25c.
