Mining and Smelting Costs in
the   Boundary District.
Interesting Letter in the London Mining Journal on
This Subject.
DI?
Rising  Generation   Will
llntiiild C. Cainpbell-Jnh nslon, a
well known mining engineer of southern British Columbia, recently spent
some time in the Boundary investigating the low cost of smelting in
Ihis section. He has written his impressions for the London Mining
Journal, and they are of more than
ordinary interest. Mr. Johnston claims
that smelting is done cheaper ill the
Boundary than anywhere else in the
world. While he does not say so in
so many words, it is evident to ull
tbat he refers particularly to tho
practice at thc (iranby smelter,
where the marvelous results are due
to tne superintendent, A. B. W.
Hodges.
Following are extracts from Mr.
Johnston's article, aud they are
worthy of special note by any one at
all interested in the development ol
the mining mdustry in British Co-,
lumbia:
"Doubtless if metallurgists and
mining engineers laid from the first
known the characteristics of the copper deposits of British Columbia, as
shown when more thorough development has exposed the structure
and gailgUeS, these men would have
hesitated in many eases to have advised their clients to have investigated. Capital, however, started thc
operation, and later proved tht de
posits to extensive, carrying less
than 2 per cent of copper per ton,
with values of gold and silver, in the
Boundary district, they were tempted to go through to a successful
issue.
"With high priced labor, dear
supplies and costly transportation;
the task was hank and required capital to equip the mines anil smelters
with every necessary labor saving
device. Now Ihe difficulties have
been overcome, and steady profits
are accruing. Further capital invested in copper as a commodity is
coining in, and by benefiting from
the pioneers' experience is saving
large sums in the initial stages, recognizing that British Columbia is a
coming factor in the copper production, and one to lake the place of the
world's old mines dying a natural
death from depletion.
"Tabulated from the 'Copper
Handbook, 1904,'from thc provincial minister of mines' report for
1903, and with private professional
advices, it is established unquestionably that the cheapest smelting
practice extant is in British Columbia. This is 'not said in a boastful
spirit, nor is this fact going to prevent our metallurgists from pressing
forward, antl accomplishing costs of
less than 85 cents a ton smelted in
tho future, though many will accuse us of summer1 madness.
L "To bring about these visionary
results we mustsce what the pioneers
have learned to date, and must in
that can bo introduced. The first 'nni7MI\l/,(-'AiTil 0/
lesson learned is that thc cost of
smelting is crux, and that the tnin-j
ing department is to be made only a!
minor detail. Nature with her!
chemistry has severely asserted her- Monday, the 22d, Troubles of
self, and demands that (o smelt
cheaply her laws of fluxing or producing chemical combustion for! Commence Anew,
clean slag and rapid melting must
be complied with. This means, then,
that tbe ores of one mine alone cannot be smelted singly, antl experience has taught that the right kinds
of custom ores citnnot be regularly
depended on, and that competition
for ores is keen among custom smelters, a cause of raising tbe price and
reducing the profits.
To make good slag to save   the
copper and bullion, a gootl smelling
mixture of valuable ores must lit-assembled, some carrying  excesses of
lime, some excesses of iron and some
silica.    A smelting company, therefore, -has to own and develop sullic-
ionl mines to satisfy their requests,
and   such   mines   are plentiful   in
British Coliimbiu.   A company after
having provided itself with the various raw material   necessary  for  a
perfect furnace   mixture, after having made provision for the cheapest
method to mine and .assemble   the
same, then gives its attention to the
best smelting practice. Metallurgists
have   agreed   that the blast furnace
executes the most work in  tonnage,
and that the  icverbcratory furnace
executes   the  best  work—that   is,
clearer slag and higher recovery of
values,
Farming and timber cutting ar
industries in British Colunibiaas well
as mining, and it is not long before
the sulphur sfnoke destruction will
have to be Stopped. This means
acid manufacture and local electrolytic refining, utilizing the ninny
water powers, so preserving another
large profit to the smelter. Wil'
drawing with cheap power and other
methods to locally manufacture copper will create larger profits still.
"If those interested in copper as a
metal and in making a profit on legitimate mining for its own sake,
will invest in British Columbia copper mines judiciously, with the requisite capital to cany matters to
gain all profits, then there arc ninny
large deposits here waiting to yield
substantial dividends for long
periods."

Salvatore Cortes*, In a very t-eadabu
artlcle In the "World's Work" on King
Victor Emmanuel of Italy, says that after the assassination of his father, Queen
Marghmta was very anxious that King
Humbert should he buried at the Superga
at Turin, where nil the rest of the House
of Snvoy lie, with the exception of the
great Victor Emmanuel. Moreover, hor
Majesty did not wish to wound the susceptibilities of the papa-1 par'y by a
state funeral In Home. King Victor, pale
and tired, entered the room where the
Queen was, exclaiming: "Well, that is
arranged—my father will have a fitting
burial In the Pantheon." "Victor," oiled
hit mother, "1 sec vou want to break
my heart. You offend my religion as
well as my affections." "I am sorry,
mother," he said gently, and then added
Bternlyi "the religion which is offended
at a martyr being buried in his own
oapital and lying beside his own father
needs radical changes."
A story Is told of Labottehcre at the
very beginning of his editorial career. A
friend eame in one day, and, seeing a
quantity of books around, which had
been sent in for review, offered to bet
Labouchere that there was one book be
had not gotin the office.  Labouchere en.
?uired the name o: the hook, and his
riend promptly answered, "A Bible."
With a laugh, Lahotichere offered to
bet ten pounds thnt he had even that
book. Turning the conversation in another direction, he furtively sent a note
out into the clerk's office, telling tlte
boy to go downstairs and ask the booksellers underneath for the loan of a
Bible. Presently he returned to the subject of the bet, and, calling his assistant
in, asked him whether he hnd a Bible
in the office. The clerk produced the
booh, which Labouchere handed over to
his friend, giving himself away, however, as he did so by saying sotto voce to
the clerk: "1 hope to goodness you didn't
forget to cut the leaves!" Of course the
English Bible does not require its leaves
to be cut.

- WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sago brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Kooky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
■This you can'do by traveling on,
the Bio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express tniins make
close connections with all trains easl
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is tbe best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard antl tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cais,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.
For additional details address J.

Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.

out every vestige of catarrh.    "I   wasif-y.;<4

A radical change In un ohl methods and prices bas been much- by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the nowspvper world have
been upon Tbe News fnr the past few
months, during which time several
departure*) have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at thc price of SI.DO a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction ill price.
But just us the dollar magazine has
taken bold of the people, so, we venture to.predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based n„t only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tin- intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club tin-Toronto
News with our own paper at §2.2f> a
year in advance. Such a. combination presenta many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you nil
Hie home and district news, and
Ihe big 12-page daily keeping you iii
touch with events ull over, the world.
Send us your subscription to The
