Vancouver, Sept. 15.���������Seven hun  died tons of ore, valued at $10,000  by a conservative estimate, was'  shipped last week from the Britannia  copper-gold mines on Howe Sound  to the Crofton smelter at Osborne  Bay, Vancouver Island, where it will  be treated as soon as the furnaces  are blown in. It may-lie one, two,  or three months before all the Crofton furnaces are working, but ��������� by  that.time there will be an immense  tonnage at the works ready to feed  the plant. . .. |  The Britannia ore storage bins on  the, wharf . "at. Britannia Teach are  now being refilled with 'ore from the  mines, three miles back in the mountains from the salt water. As raj)-  idly as the bins are filled the ore  will be removed to Crofton. The ship  .ments' of concentrates has nut yet  been commenced, but they will shortly be ready for transportation across the Gulf.  While it   is estimated   that the  average value of the ore  being shipped  from  Britannia  is  $15   per ton,      it  may  be  woith   much   more   in  reality.   Even_ at   the  figure   mentioned,  the shipments  will  net a substantial  profit after the payment  of1 the cost  of     mining and treatment at       the  smelter.

The Union Brewing Company, of  Nanaimo, bas taken a'Jong step forward not only in their own interest  but in the interest of the farmers of  the vicimty in installing in connection  with their big . brewery a com-,  jiiete malting plant.

Some     years since,     Victoria  parties undertook the manufacture ot  malt but failed to make it a success, ���������  on   account, largely     of the lack   of  good barley.
