tjjjfie ElmoreProcess
Refuse Petroleum Saves Good Ore at
Rossland.
Mill Closely Resembles an Ordinary Concentrator, Save for
ir the Oil Features—Five Men Handle
Twenty-five Tons.
RosBland's first oil process concentrator is now in full swing at the
I^ Roi No. 2. For a.time the works
will be, closed to the public,, but
visitors will soon be .admitted.
The mill building is qolidly constructed of heavy timbers .and «ub-
stantial stone and concrete foundations. The Structure is on the "step-
down" gravity plan, each floor being
utilized for a separate stage of the
process. .,,,   ,  , .    ,,•
Ore dumps of 20,000 tons supply
the product to the concentrator over
a surface tramway. The, initial
stages of concentration at the Elmore
oil mill is common to all such plants.
The ore is reduced to three inch size
in a Blake crusher, and then to Jjialf
inch size in a gates crusher, whife a
Trent rotary mill crushes it to a. 20
mesh fineness. The plant is erected
in two units of 25 tons capacity
each, with a Trent mill for each
unit. ,, •
Wilflcy stables receive the material
from the rotary crushers, and ■ the
first concentration is performed hero.
Tbe material saved ou the Wilfleys
is collected in launders and handled
in thc manner common to all systems of concentration.
Then the oil process commences.
The residue from the Wilfleys is conducted to sets of horizontal iron
tanks, fed with refuse petroleum
from 2000 gallon oil tanks. Thc
horizontal tanks are styled mixers,
and are arranged in sets of three,
one above the next. Each drum is
revolved slowly by a spiral shaft
and thc oil picks up thc mineral as
a result of the affinity which is the
underlying principles of the Elmore
process. At the end of the upper
tank a quantity of oil carrying mineral is delivered, while the balance
of tbe contents of the first drum
passes into the second drum, and
thenoe to the third, the last drum
collecting such mineral as remains.
The balance of the process consists of apparatus to recover the oil.
The oil bearing mineral passes into
a centrifugal separator, revolving at
a speed of one thousand revolutions,
per minute, the effect of which is to
throw out the oil. This does not recover all of the oil, however, and a
further recovery is made in a perforated separator, also operating on
the centrifugal principle. From the
perforated separator the concentrates
arc drawn ready for shipment, while
the oil is returned to thc tanks for
further use.
Such oil as remains in thc concentrated product is valuable as a binder in the briquetting process at the
smelter. Arrangements will probably be made for steel care to ship
the concentrates in bulk.
Five men, per 12 hour shift, constitute  the crew at  thc works, and
only a slight increase is necessitated
when the process is applied on a
considerably larger scale. The machinery operates continuously, tbe
system works automatically, and
the men confine their attention to
keeping things in running order and
handling the concentrated product
as it, comes from the final stage of
the. prqeess.
Victoria, Nov. 5.—Hon. Richard
McBri.de completed his cabinet this
evening after a long executive meeting.
MoPhillips resigned his position as
afvjjroey-general, being sueeeedetiby
Cileries Wilson, who has been prcsi-
dsWt.of the council. Wilson is succeeded in the latter office by F. J
Fulton, of Kamloops. Both were
were sworn in late tbis evening.
WJlson will go back for re-election, thc byc-elcction being pulled
off in about two weeks. Fulton
docs not have to be re-elected.
Later—There will be another
shuffle of portfolios. McBride will
leave the department of lands and
works, uikidg that of mines, and
combining with it the provincial
secretaryship, while Green goes to
the lands and works department.
The cabinet, as reconstructed,  is
as follows:
Premier, Minister of Mines and
Provincial Secretary	
 Hon. R. McBride
Minister of Finance	
 Hon. R. G. Tatlow
Attorney-General	
 Hon. Charles Wilson
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works Hon. R. F. Green
President of the Council	
 Hon. F..I. Pulton
Thc second steam shovel for use
in handling ore at tbe (Iranby mines
has arrived in Phoenix, ami has been
set at.work by the company. This
shovel was loaned by the C. P. R. to
sco if it would do the work required
of it, and is proving quite effective
in tbe .No. 1 quarry, where it is now
now being used. It is of a different
make from thc first steam shovel
employed at the mines, which has
been at work successfully for some
months, and while not especially
adapted to handling ore, is a more
powerful machine than the first one.
A third steam shovel manufactured
by thc same makers as the first one
installed, is expected to arrive from
the factory in Ohio stiine time about
the latter part of the present month.
Ore is being loaded directly into the
railway dump cars by tbesbovel that
was set to work last Wednesday.
"Quo Vadis," as presented by Mr.
Harold Nelson and his company, is
a dramatic success and unequalled
in the history of the stage of Western Canada. Mr. C. P. Walker, of
the Winnipeg theatre, has given his
star a scenic and electrical equip-
mqnt equal to that used in the larger
cities, the entire Carpenter produc
tion, which was used in Chicago and
other large western cities of the
United States, has been purchased,
together with a lighting plant which
will allow superior and realistic effects. The costumes have all been
prepared under the direct .supervision of .Mr. Nelson and the models
taken from tho most eminent classical authority. No expense has been
spared to make this the dramatic
sensation of the year. In Marcus
Vinicius, Mr. Nelson has a .part
which particularly suits his romantic and artistic sty It* of acting, besides affording him opportunities for
great power. His costumes and armor have been procured at great expense, and are remarkable for historical accuracy, He has surrounded himself by a company of exceptional stength, eaeh one being
especially selected for thc part taken.
Mr. Nelson will produce "Quo
Vadis" hereon Tuesday evening,
Nov. 10. in thc Biden opera house.

Divisional Engineer F. F. Busteed
of the Pacific division of thc C. P.
R., has been promoted to the super-
intendency of the Kobtenny-Boundary division, with headquarters at
Nelson. Mr. Busteed succeeds I). G.
Koss, who resigned on account of ill
health. He formally took over the
work of his new office last week, and
last Friday he made a tour of inspection over his division, accompanied by Robert Marpole, superintendent of the Pacific division.
The two new furnaces, Nos. 5
and li, were blown in at the (Iranby
smelter tbis week. This makes four
Urnaccs now in operation at the big
reduction plant. Nos. I! and 4 are
cold at present, but will probably he
blown in before long.
The tramway constructed at the
(Iranby smelter for the purpose of
carrying away the slag while in a
molten state has been completed, and
the engine and rolling stock were put
in motion last Wednesday for the
lirst time. Aid. M. S. Martin is the
engineer on the day shift, with II.
('. Kerman as brakeman.
The Marldor-Goulding company
gave one of the best literary and
musical entertainments ever presented in tbis eity at the Biden

Postmaster Hull has been advised
from Ottawa that ou and after Nov.
1st no correspondence may be sent to
points ill the Yukon nortli of White
Horse exeept "letters ami post
cards; newspapers from the office of
publication addressed to public
libraries, to newspaper offices and to
individual subscribers, and transient
newspapers."
li. A. Brown returned to the city
Monday, after spending two weeks
hunting and trapping forty miles up
thc North Fork.
Latterly the Athelstan and Jackpot, in Wellington camp, have not
been shipping quite as much ore as
formerly, owing to the difficulty in
getting teams to haul it to, the Winnipeg spur.
* *   *
The Mining World, of Chicago,
will soon issue a special British Columbia edition, in which special
prominence will be given to Boundary mines.
* *   *
It is said that the ore ihipments
from the Emma mine, Summit
camp, will soon be increased to 300
tons daily, which will require an increased force of men.   '
* *   *       ' '"
With'the completion .of the new
ore pockets at the Old Ironsides
mine, now under way, the Granby
company can load a train of ore
without hardly moving1!- oar.
The Greenwood syndicate who are
developing the Ruby, near Boundary Falls, are running a tunnel to
tap the ore body. They expect to
run into shipping ore in a few days,
wl.cn shipments will be made to tbe
Boundary Falls smelter.
* *   *
H. M. Fuller, who is developing
the Gobi Bug for a syndicate ot
Spokane and Greenwood people, hns
'our men at work on the property.
Some exceedingly rich ore is being
e ctracted, and as a new vein is being opened up the outlook for the
Gold Bug is very bright.
* *   *
The cost of mining at thc Athelstan is lower than at any other mine
in the disti'iet, as the ore is soft and
easily mined. The glory hole is assuming large dimensions.
• *     *      *
Arrangements have been made for
the construction of a otl-ton Elmore
oil  concentrator  by thc Rossland
Power eompany, subsidiary lo the
War Hagle-Ccntrc Star mines. The
plant will be supplementary to tin-
water cyanide mill near Trail.
* *   *
(lootl progress is being made with
the foundations for tbe converter
building for tin- Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood, and the l.'i.Vfool
brick smokestack is also going up at
a rapid rate.
* *   *
On account of tbe heavy eastbound
traffic on tbe Boundary railway, including ore shipments from Republic mines, a helper engine is now

Cascade and Farren.
£    #   #
Owing to repairs necessary to the
ore crusher at the Mother Lode
mine, shipmenis of on: have, up to
tbis week, been somewhat reduced
for   a   time past.    Some of  tbe re
pairs were made at the Granby 'machine shop in Phoenix.
X    *    -Jf.
Work has been practically suspended for some little time on the
Seattle mine, up the North Fork,
which is under bond to the Trail
smelter people. It is expected, how-
'"'"•. that Supt. Hutchens will resume operations there shortly.
*    *   *
The final payment on account of
the Elkhorn bond will be paid on
December 1st, says the Greenwood
Times. The payment will lie mr.de
out of the proceeds ofthe ore. Since
this property was taken over by Jas.
Sutherland Phil "McDonald every
installment of thc purchase price was
paid out of the proceeds of thc mine,
and the cost of development, labor
and material was paid from thc
same source. Few properties in
British Columbia have such a flattering record. Usually money, and
lots of it, has to be furnished to
place a mine on a paying basis, but
the Elkhorn paid from the grass
roots. Fourteen men are now employed in the mine. An incline
shaft has been sunk a distance of
176 feel, and ore is being taken from
a drift from the bottom of tbe shaft.
Tho vein averages 12 inches in
width, widening often to two feet.
The ore is now being shipped to the
Greenwood smelter without sorting.
The smelter is giving a reasonable
rate, and by treating all the ore without sorting a big saving is made.
The average value is about 8100 to
the ton. The vein is strong at the
lower level, and it looks as if the
Elkhorn would soon join its neighbor, the Providence, as a dividend
payer. A new blacksmith shop, an
ore house ami shaft house have been
built lai tin' property. This fall a
horse whim will be placed in the
shall house, but iu the spring a modern mining plant will lit- Installed.

Joseph Martin has come out in
an open letter in defense of John
Houston. Birds of a feather flock
together.
If the members who have been
promised, or are seeking, portfolios
form a syndicate they will have a
good working majority in the next
house.
The days of waiting for population are drawing to a close. Canada
has been discovered, or rather rediscovered, for over half a century ago
the Irish famine and the clearings
in the Highlands of Scotland drove
great swarms of settlers into Upper
Canada, and raised it from the position of a series of straggling settlements into a powerful and populous
provime Tbe west seems destined
to have a similar rush. Figures
issued at Ottawa recently show that
the immigrant arrivals in Canadafor
the nine months of the present calendar year ending on October 1st
numbered 108,014, or 30,182 in excess of the total for the same period
last year. Of this year's immigrants
43,187 came from thc British Isles,
32,408 from the continent of Europe
and 82,321) from the United States.
In 1!)02 the immigrant arrivnlswere:
British, 10,097; continental, 25,236;
the United States, 20,017.
Thc annual Christinas Cantata
and entertainment of Knox church
Sunday school will be held in the
Biden opera house on Monday evening, December 21st. The executive
of the school regret that it is necessary, for this year, to depart from
their annual date of the 23rd of December, it being impossible to secure the opera house for tbis date.
A cantata has been ordered from
Chicago through Prof. Richards, and
it is purposed to make this the most
enjoyable and successful entertainment in tbe history of tbe school.
Fred Elliott, the barrister, left
today for Yorklon, N.W.T., wber-
he will engage in the practice of his
profession in the office of his
brother.
Rev. J. R. Robertson will conduct
morning and evening services in
Knox church next Sunday. Subject for morning sermon, "Christ's
First Temptation;" for evening sermon, "Is the Young Man Safe?"
The young men are specially invited
to be present at the evening service.
Geo. A. Fraser, M. P. P., returned
this evening from a two weeks' visit
to Victoria.
Louis G. Fowler and bride, nee
Miss Shepard, returned yesterday
from their honeymoon trip to thc
Sound cities.
Harold Jackson, who recently
opened the City market, now secures
his incut from the Union Meat company, who own and operate a
slaughter house near Phoenix.
Josh Anderson has been confined
to his home during the past week
Buffering from a bail attack of the

A Yale-Cariboo Candidate
Dr. A. C, Sinclair, of Rossland,
was in the city last Wednesday on
way home from Midway. Mr. Sinclair, who is thc best and most favorably known man in this section
of the province out of public life,
is being mentioned in connection
with the Liberal candidature as a
member of the federal house for
Vale-Cariboo. His friends urge in
support of his aspirations the fact
that he is practically the father of
Liberalism in this district. The
doctor has devoted the best efforts of
bis life in advancing the principl s
of bis party, and to further thc cause
of good government. He sticks this
nomination only, and thinks that
younger men should bo willing to
await their turn. Thc doctor, being
well advanced in years, cannot afford to wait, and any younger niiin
who would attempt to sidetrack him
at his time of life deserves the censure oj all good Liberals.

When Robert came home from tho
day's work Mary Bald Bolemnlyi "Rub-
bert, I want ye to punish McPherson an'
gie him a gufd skelpinV
"Dod, ay I Tho wean's line. I'll no
skclp him," replied Robert with a fund
glance at wee McPherson, who waa sola*
Boring off small pieces of the cat's tall.
"He trim wee Mollie (loon the well,
an' she was sair drookit an* about
drooned."
"He's the wean," snid the father,
though with a cautious admiration,
"Whit dae ye want me to daet I canna
skclp hi in."
"Yi* munna gie him ony cunnn'-cake
the niulrt; lie disna deserve it. Tell him
so, Rubbert. McPherson, stop mutllat-
in' the cat, nn' dowkle to your paw."
"Aweel," said Robert, gloomily. "Come
here, noo, McPherson."
Wee McPherson finished the cat's tail
'with one last snip and walked over coek-
ily to his parent. "Whit wey do a cat
greet when ye cut aff Us tail, pawl"
"McPherson," snid Robert, affecting
severity, "yer maw is fair ail'rontit.
Whit wey did ye trun wee Mollie doon
the well? Didna ye ken she canna
soom?"
"Whit wey canna she soom, paw?"
"Fine wean I1' said Robert.
"Haud yer tongue! spoke up Mary.
"He's no fine."
"McPherson," said Robert, nerving
himself for the blow, "yer maw says ye
are no fine, an' ye are no to have ony
curran'-cattB the nicht."
"Boo-hocl" bawled wee McPherson,
and Robert wept with him. "Mary," he
whispered, "I'm thinkin' the wean's been
punished enough. He's unco tender of
hairt, Dod, ay!"
"Hoots, mon! But nweell" replied
Mary. "Ye may gie him the curran'-
cake now, Rubbert."
Wee McPhersor seized the currant
cake and retired trl'imphantly to a corner, followed by the 1 md glances of both
parents.
"He's such a wee dnvill" murmured
Mary, softly.
"Dod, ay!" snid Robert.

"Cat," a domestic animal.
"Cockily,"   pertly.

"The," definite article.
"Trun," to throw.

"Well," a water supply.
"Work," labor.—Chicago "Tribune."
Overcoming the Obstacle.
"Yes," Baid the young man who was
taking the young woman for an auto
ride, "the auto has its advantages; but
still there is a great difference between
it and the pood old horse."
"Oh, yes; I suppose there is" answered the young woman.
"For instance," went on the young
man, "with the horse, when one was
driving with the pretty girl, he could
hold the lines in one hand, or wrap them
about the whip, and—and—and hug the
girl."
"Oh-h-h-hl you awful thing!" exclaimed the blushing young woman.
They sped along in silence for several
miles. At lost the timid young thing
said:
"But I should think that difficulty
could be easily overcome."
"What dilliculty?" asked the young
man.
"Why, that—what you said about the
times when the men took the girls driving behind a horse, and—and when they
wrapped the lines about the whip, and
when they—they—oh, when they did
what you say they did."
"I don't see how it could be overcome,"
said the youth. "If you stop thc auto
it's liable to start up of itself and upset
you in the ditch, and a fellow simply
has to keep both hands busy while it Is
in motion."
"1 know," faltered the girl; "but—but
it seems to me there would be a way."
"I'd like to know what it is."
"Well, couldn't the girl—couldn't she
hug—hug the mant"

Ill "Lives of the 'Lustrlous," a blo«
rraphlcal dictionary just Issued In Eng<
land, it If maid that when Hall Caint,
whose resemblance to Shakespeare) la
well known, landed In New York on a
trip to America, he was accosted by
the late Ignatius Donnelly, a stranger
to him, with the words: "Lord Bacon,
I presume,"
Some of the late Lord Randolph
Churchill's friends once tried to have
Lord Salisbury reinstate his errntlo
lieutenant. Salisbury listened to them
patiently, and then asked: "Have any
of you ever had a carbuncle on the
back of your neck?" "No," was tho
reply. "Well, I have," retorted his lord?
ship, "and I don't want another."
At a dinner-table In London the conversation turned on speaking. Curran
stated that he could never speak In
public for a quarter of an hour without
moistening his lips. '*I have the advantage of you then, Curran," said Sir
Thomas Turton, a pompous and pretentious member of Parliament. "I
spoke the other night in the House of
Commons for five hours on the Nabob
of Ou:le, and never felt in the least
thirsty." "That is very remarkable,
Indeed," replied Curran, "for everyone
agrees that it was the driest speech of
the session."
Dr. Gordon, who was the first minister of the church in Jamaica Plain,
about the year 1771, was a Set tchman,
very stern and arbitrary In his manners, and precise and orderly In his
own habits. The following anocdote of
him Is recorded In the family journal
of one of his old parishioners: One
Sunday, while preaching, he had begun to develop his theme with tho usual "firstly," and got through that and
"secondly." Then, turning the leaves
of his manuscripts he said: "Thirdly,"
a second time "Thirdly," and again in
great embarrassment, '"Thirdly!" Just
then a little girl in one of the front
pews stood up and said: "Plense, sir,
thirdly flew out of the window some
time ago."
John Townsend Trowbridge, one of
the few surviving intimates of Walt
Whitman, relates these anecdotes in his
"Reminisce.ices" of the "good, gray
poet" In the "Atlantic Monthly":
"When, at dinner, preparing my dish
of salad, I remarked that I was employed as his critics would be when
his new edition was out, he queried,
'Devouring Leaves of Grass?' 'No,' I
said, 'cutting up Leaves of Grass'—
which amused him more, I fnncy, than
the cutting up dll which came later, As
the . fternoon waned, and he spoke of
leaving us, somebody placed a book
before trie face of the clock. I said:
'Put Leaves of Grans there. Nobody
can see through that.' 'Not even the
author?' he said, with a whimsical lifting of the brows.

Curious Bits of News.
Recently an American cyclist
wheeled through La Mancha, in Spain,
and in all that bleak region found no
one who had ever heard of "Don Quixote," much less of Cervantes.
Dogs are to be used as river police
on the Seine. At Gibraltar, curiously
enough, dogs are mainly used for smuggling across the frontier, while on tho
St. Bernard they hrve once more been
established as 'first aids" to the frozen.
Burnham, the famous scout, found that
on the Klondike trail every kind of
dog could be taught to draw sledges.

Goubet, the French Inventor of submarine boats, has devised a model of a
boat Intended to run under water and
to convey passengers between France
and England by means of a cable
stretched across the Channel. Perhaps
his strongest argument for an underwater passage Is that the stendlness of
motion would prevent seasickness, the
traditional terror of the English Channel. The submarine boat "Fulton"
lately lay undisturbed on the bottom off
the Long Island coast while a tempest
overhead sent many vessels to destruction
The keepers of the big cnbrns In the
Central Park Menagerie and the New
York Zoological Garden do not Hnd it
easy to supply their venomous charges
with the kind of fond that they specially prefer. In their native land cobras live chiefly on smaller nnd less dangerous and objectionable snakes, but
although every effort Is made to collect
harmless snakes to satisfy the appetite
of the imprisoned cobras, nt some seasons they have to lie content with rats
and mice, which they do not particularly like. Other* varieties of captive
snakes are fed mainly on toads, mice,
rabbits nnd English sparrows.
Smoking in church Is a Dutch custom. Dutchmen are such Inveterate
smokers that one of them Is rarely seen
without his pipe. He finds himself unable to deprive himself of the Indulgence, even for the short period of a
church service. A similar practice exists In several churches In South America. Smoking In churches In Great
Britain Is sold to have been prevalent
at the end of the sixteenth and the beginning of the seventeenth century.
At one time smoking was carried te
auch an excess In Serine Cathedral that
the chapter applied to tho Pope for
power to repress the abuse. Urban
VIII., yielding to their wish, issued a
:,ull, which was promulg'' id January
30, 1G42. In Wales smoking In church
was Indulged In as late as 1850. In one
Church the communlon-tnble stood in
the nisle. and the farmers were In the
habit of puiting their hats upon It, and
when the service began they lighted!
th«*lr pipes and smoked, without any
thought of Irreverence In the act.
