The  throughs from, the   grrzzly  and  the  smaller-  crusher feed 'on  a  belt conveyor,   running at right -ingles  to,, it  and which  is  carried orr   a carriage  running on a   trac     over the   main  storage  bins.     Over  this  belt is suspended   a powerful   electric   magnet  which picks up any bits of steel or iron  iri the ore.     By moving  this carriage  the ore can be fed into any eif the bins  desired.     From  the bins  it is fed  by  Challenge feeders  to  the 40 stamps.  The stamps drop 101 timi'Si- minute, a  distance of seven and  one-half inches,  and weigh 1,050 pouuils.    No amalgamation   has been attempted eitherin  the  battery or on the plates for  the  hist'year and a half, as the saving effected by amalgamation  was found to  be. so small, anel the gold could be collected in the cyanide plant anyway^  This .was one of  the'many changes  made in'the mill since Mr. Jones  became manager, although   be has been  with the property as mine superintendent for over 12 years.  The stamps crush to 12mesh iiuel  have ji duty of live tons per stamp;'  The screens used are of the steel slot  type.  COXCENTUATINl}  PLANT  The pulp passes  to four  explicated  Spitzkasten.     The coarse   is  fed   hy  these to  eight corrugated  belt Fine  Viinners  and  the fines  to  10 smooth  belt vanners and 12 Deister tables. The  tailings from the corrugated belt van-  ri_rs'arev're-eI6vafci_dr'-b"y'::it~'8iaiHi--pHmp  to a tube mill and re-ground. The finely ground proiluct  tlien joins the feeel  to the 16 smooth  belt vanners and 12  Deister  tables.     Churtz   pebbles   are  used altogether in the  tube mill.    At  first coarse ore and pebbles were used,  but by using  the Churtz  pebbles, ob-  taineel from Denmark,   it was found  that the  output of the  mill'was  increased  and the life  of the lining was  much longer.    Two-fifths  of a pound  of pebbles are  used to one ton  of tailings.     The  tailings  from the Deister  tables and smooth belt vanners go te>  a set of cone classifiers.     The slimes  from  the  classifiers go  to   the slime  plant anel the sands to the sanel plant.  About j240 tons ofconcentrates, containing silica 14  to  16 per-  cent'and  iron  2S to 30 per cent, the  iron being  arsenical iron, are produced per month  anel  shippeel  to   the  Tacoma smelter j  for-   treatment.      These   concentrates  contain  from 70 to 80 per cent of the  values saved.  CYANIDE   PLANT  The sand plant treats 120 tons per  day. while the slime plant treats SO  tons, that being about the proportion  of slimes to sands produced. The sand  plant has 12 tanks; six on each floor.  The tanks are six feet deep by 32 feet  in diameter. The sands,are treated  twice with cyanide solution, first in  one of the lippei tanks and then iu one  of the lower, the whole treatment occupying 20 days.  The slime plant tanks are all on one  lloor and the slimes are agitated for 12  hours in one tank and allowed to settle once arid then are. thrown overbite! the No. 2 tanks, where they remain for- about 30 hours. From the  No. 2 tanks they are taken to two  Oliver filter presses, where they are  washeel with a barren cyanide solution, which is sucked through them to  wash out any gold-carrying cyanide  they may contain. After being pressed dry by the suction provieled by the  vacuum pumps they pass to the tailings launder.  The cyanide solution troni the sand  plant and the slimes plant is fed into  a solution tank with zinc dust, with  which it becomes thoroughly mixed  in the tank. It is then pumped with  the zinc elust anel precipitated gold  through two Merrill presses, one 20-  franio and the other 10 frame. These  are kept locked and the gold precipitate   is   all  collected   in   them,   from  sulphuric acid solution and then with  water dried and melted into bullion,  and | The barren .solution from the presses  passes to the sump tanks and from  there it is pinniped to the mixing tanks  oil the upper sand plant floor, where  it is-: brought up to standard strength  and used again.'- The consumption of  cyanide is tliroe-eighthsi of a. pound, of  zinc one-quarter of a pound and of  lime.four..pounds per ton of ore treated while the 'extraction of gold is averaging 95 per cent, although last month  it was nearer 97 per- cent of the total  gold contents of the ore:       ,  The-important changes that have  been made in the niill and which have  brought about the increased saving  were completed about 18 months ago.  They consisted of iibolishing amalgamation altogether, '.'theVinstallatinii of  the tube -mill for the fine grinding of  the sanil tables -tailing's, the addition  of the 12 Deister tables for the con-  centratiori eif the fine-slirnes in the  concentration', plant, the addition of  the Oliver filter- presses for the slirnes  treatment, anel the abolishing of the  use of the zinc boxes arid the installation of the Merrill filter, presses and  tank treatment of the':'.solution with  zinc dust instead of zinc shavings fentile collection of the golel precipitate.  The changes have brought the values  in the sand tailings down to about 25  cents and in the slime tailings to about  60 cents per ton.  INCREASED CAPACITY  The capacity of the mill has been increased from 4,000 tons' per month to  over 6,000 tons, while." the additional  cost of treatment is nominal.  Before these changes were maele the  slimes were till  saved without cyaniel-  ing in the slime pond.,; This pond contains over 6,500  tons of slimes which  will  be pumped  back  to  the   slimes  plant for treatment at some later date.  Under  the former   management   the  tailings were not saved; but under the  | present management the tailings were  iVU Siiyeel'befor-irthe Infttiillii Dion eif the  changes  mentioned could   be effectetl,  and  these   will be  also  pumpeel hack  and i-etreatcdat a-lsiter elate.  POWER   PLANT  At the power house compressed air-  anel  electric   power are generated by  duplicate   steam    and    water   power-  units.  The air compressors and generators  sire direct connected   te>  water-  wheels.      When   using water   power  the   connecting   mils   of   the    steam  cylinders  .-ire disconnected and if any  accident occurs   to the flume line or-  the water  becomes low  these can be  connected  up and steam raised in the  boilers with a delay of only four hours.  Water- is taken   from Twenty-mile  Creek  and  conveyed by a  flume  line  four feet by   four feet and 13,000 feet  long toaforehay  412 feet above  the  power  house.     For storage purposes  there is a dam at an elevation of 7,000  feet. 400  feet across  and 16 feet  high  on the east fork of Twenty-mile.   This  forms a lake  one mile  long and  one-  half mile wiele.   from which the water  cm be discharged into  the creek and  caught at the flume  when   the water  becomes low.  The  main  generator is ,-i 300 K. W.  2.200 volt    Wcstinghouse  direct  connected    to   a   400-hor.sepower    Doble  water wheel of the Pel ton type on one  end.     The   water  wheel is controlled  by a .Lombard governor. The 30-horse-  powcr  exciter    is   belted   to   the line  shaft.    On   the other  end   the generator can   be direct connected   to a 500-  horsepowr-r Goldic tV. McCulloh Corliss  condensing  engine,   controlled   by   a  Rites-Inertia    governor   when    it    is  necessary   to use  steam  power.     The  lights for the town and  plant are supplied by a. 100 Kilo-Watt generator direct connected to a Pelton wheel. This  is  the only  unit in   the plant which  has  no steam   connection.    The main  unit of the  compressor- plant  is  one  two stage cross  compound steam condensing Corliss gear Hand compressor,  supplying 2,100 cubic   feet of air at 125  pounds,   driven   by  a   20 foot   Pelton i  wheel direct  connected  te>   the  main  shaft.

The Canadian Postmaster-General, Hon. L. P. Pelletier,  arrived.'here this evening. The principal object of Mr. Pelletier's visit is,  if possible, with M. Ohaumet, Under-  Secretary of Posts and Telegraphs, to  establish a reduction in cable rates  and iin introduction of two cent letter  postiige  between Canada arid France.  The Postmaster-General will be joined Saturday by the Canadian-Premier,  Hon. 11. L. Borden; the Canadian  Minister of Justice, Hon. C. J. Dolrer-  ty: the Minister.of Marine anel Fisheries, Hon. J. D. Hazen. and Hon. A. E.  Kemp, Minister without portfolio.  Mr. Hazeri will confer with Delcasse  the French Minister of Marine- on the  subject of reciprocal shipping regulations notably twith respect to < an increased number of lifeboats on steamships plying between Fiance and.Canada,'and on the possibilities of improving trade'between the two countries.  Great importance is attached to the  visit to Paris of. the Canadian ministers, on account eif the close relations  between .'France and Canada, anel an  imposing programme of entertainment  has been arranged-in their honor.'This  includes a. trip to Versailles and banquets by the British .Chamber'of Commerce and the France-American- Commission, the latter to be ���������.presided'over  by Premier Poineare sind'M. Gabriel  Honotaux, the president of the commission.  HOSPITAL DONATIONS  Mr-si Wirth, flowers; Mrs. S. L.

Arrangements Are   Progressing for Entertainment of the Visiting Geologists  to the World's Congress in  Canada in 1913  Excursions will be maele to various  parts before, during and after the congress. It will be after the congress  that parties"will visit British Columbia anel the following is an outline, of  the route to be taken:  ''--Examination of the intrusive contact of the grarioiliorite fit Nelson, the  gold-copper deposits at Bossland, the  gold-quartz veins at Sheep Creek, the.  copper- mines at Phoenix and Greenwood, the silver-lead' mines eif the  Slocan district, the Nickel Plate-gold  mine at Hedley..and the pre-Oambrian  rocks west of/the Kootenay river will  be maele by the members of the  Twelfth International Geological Congress in September, 1913.  Fifteen days will be devoted to the  trip via the Crow's Nest line from Toronto to Vancouver.  Those participating in this excursion will travel over the main line of  the Canadian Pacific Railway directly  to Medicine Hat, in the province of  Alberta. From this point the journey  will be by way-, of'.the Crow's Nest  branch line passing through the mining centres of Lethbridge, Fernie.  Nelson Rossland and Greenwood.  At Midway the party will be -'divided,  some of the party returning to Nelson  and Revelstoke on the mainline by  way of tlie .Arrow Lakes. The remainder of the party will -proceed te> Vancouver, passing through a mining region of which the principal places are  Hedley, Princeton. Tnlaineen and Nicola. Between Lethbridge and .Ferine  sections of the Cretaceous coal measures  will be examined. At Frank the party  will be given an opportunity of viewing the notable rock slide which occurred in 1903.

Bank hold-ups still figure in Vancouver's bill of crime. The, Central  Park branch of the Northern Crown  Bank was the last to be robbed.  The coal-miners are on strike again  at Coleman, Alberta. There were one-  hundred and fifty went out on 25th  ult a nil several hundred more the following day.  Rural mail delivery is becoming  popular and the Post Office Department are beseiged with applications  for the service. Most of the applications are from Ontario.  Half the Rainbow's crew are going  back to England and the ship is to go  out of commission in consequence'.  The term for which the men hail taken  service litis elapsed.  The Railway Commission sitting at  Calgary gave out a very important  decision last week. It was to the effect that where a railwav company  removes a station away from a town  they must also stand the expense of  moving the town.

The  boiler  plant consists  of  three  150-hiusepower  tubular return boilers  made by the .Tencks Machine company,  iiuel two 100-horsepower tubular return boilers, made, by the Vancouver-  Engineering works. A. 100-horsepower  Mumford is used" for heating the mill  and buildings with steam at 10 pounds  pressure.  An interesting anil effective feature  of the air compressors is the location  of the intercrioleranel after-cooler tanks  in an excavation in the tailrace. The  constant flow of the abundance of  water thus provided assures a maximum of condensation and provides  much drier air for the 17,000 foot pipe  line to the mine than is ordinarily  obtained.

The piobibi-  tion seems to be  just another of those  instances where an excess of religious  zeal   will   elefeat  its   own   object, anel  instead   of   promoting   morality     will  tend to lessen   the hold  of the church  upon the masses: for the public, meaning no harm  and   being  unable   to recognize any  harm  in the little diversion of a. ball game  in  the  pure open  air  on a Sunday afternoon, are hound  to   resent    interference   of  this  kind  with what they conceive to be their innocent pleasure. AVhat has precipitated  the present  ukase we can only  guess,  but in all probability  it is an  echo  of  the incident which  occurred over in  the   Boundary  district a    few   weeks  ago   when   customs   collector    Robt.  Kerr took upon himself to turn at the  boundary line a number of spectators  anel players   from Republic   who were  on their way   to play   a ball  game:  on  Sunday at Greenwood   and   the  matter    got    into   the  papers.     That   of  course  would   be   the   signal   for  the  Lord's Day Alliance  to stick  in their  oar- and get busy.    It is very true that  the Lord's Day Act is a Dominion law  forced on the country by the Alliance  and their supporters, and  as a Dominion law it is up  to all portions of the  Dominion to  obey   it. subject   to  any  provincial restrictions, but   it must he  remembered   that   there   is   a   safety  valve   clause  to   it    which   permitted  each province to reserve for its Attorney   General     the    right     to    decide  whether or   not  a  prosecution   might  take place   for infraction  of  any  particular clause of the Act.    Quebec and  British Columbia elected   to  make the  reservation   anil thereby  arouseel   the  pious horror   of   many   in   the   east.  Having done so  it is  now left  to   the  Attorney General  of this province  to  decide individual cases on their merits.  We do not know  whether  the chief  constable has issued this  order  about  Similka.nieen base-ball   off his own bat  or hael his instructions from higher up,  but    if   the    Attorney   General    has  yielded to the Alliance  for action  in  this  case he has shown a weakness  even where there is no gate charge  nor no prize nor stake being competed  for. 'Under the circumstances it  would appear that if the Attorney  General is supposed to have decided  this case on its merits he has been  most'unfortunate, in the recognition  of those merits.  The order clearly goes too far and  no conviction could be obtained from  a prosecution under it for the. Act  itself will-not .bear it out. To issue  an order of this kind under the circumstances is only to bring law and  authority into-public-contempt.  THE   ���������-..

After Winston Churchill, first Lorel  of the  Admiralty, maele   that   noted  speech introducing his new naval programme, laying the responsibility for  it plainly  on Germany and acknowledging  his  perfect accorel  with  the  views  anel  attitude  of Canada's  Premier,   and after  his sentiments  were  even   more   strongly   emphasized   by  Premier Asquith, it will   t;ix the sidestepping powe-rs  of our Sir Wilfrid to  find   a  suitable  pretext  on   which  to  line   up   his   compatriots   in   Quebec  against Borden's proposals which are  now   known   to   and   commended  by  Asquith anel  Churchill but which will  not  be announced in Canada   or elsewhere until they are submitted by Mr.  Borden   to his cabinet in Ottawa and  then    announced    to   the    Canadian  people.  Readers of British Columbia dailies  cannot fail to have  noticed  the  wonderful   improvement in the   character  of the news that now fills the columns  and is served   up   to   readers of  these  papers throughout   H. (J.    while  it   is  still fresh.      Formerly the   bulk of the  news contained by them  that was not  home   brew and  dealing   with  the affairs of the province alone.was for the  most part  about happenings   through  the   United   States   about   which   the  average British Columbian   reader did  not care a button, and the very small  amount of  space given to news of the  eastern provinces and to British news  fresh from over the water at the heart  of empire was meagre indeed.    Worse  still, it  had filtered   in   to British Columbia papers through American channels   anel   in   transit had   taken   on   a  tinge  of coloring  that was   decidedly  pale after  all that was  at all national  in character had been lopped out of it.  Too  much  credit  cannot be  given to  those  who have been  responsible for  bringing about the change, and national as their news service is now becoming we  believe it is only an approach  to what  they will  yet be able to give  us when cable rates are cheapened.

Mrs. Frank Richter was in Hedley  on Monday on business and took advantage e>f the opportunity to niake a  few calls on her friends in town. She  went on to Princeton next day.  F. H. French was called to Vernon  last Saturday by the serious illness of  his mother. He expected to make  Penticton on Saturday evening and  get the boat up the lake on Sunday.  John George, who was one of the  leading promoters of the B. C. Portland Cement industry at East Princeton on One-Mile Creek, went up the  valley on Thursday last and visited  the works.  The present week has witnessed a  marked decline in the flow of the  water in Twenty-mile. If it continues  to recede like this for a week or two  more they will have to steam up the  boilers again.  There has been pretty good fishing  in adjoining streams during the past  week. In Twenty-mile Creek tho fish  have been biting quite ravenously but  so many are under- size that a good  many have to be returned to the  stream.

The  ���������load was made up of apricots and  early apples but a few days later he  promises to set the mouths watering  with the luscious peaches that are  now ..commencingto come in. The  cool.inoist weather which has proved  troublesome to the haymakers has  also hindered the ripening of. fruits  and.as^ a consciiuence the full tide of  the peach'crop will be delayed a bit.  W. A. McLean, who has charge of  the provincial trunk'-' road beyond  Princeton came down on Saturday'to'  visit his family over Sunday and went  back again by Monday's train. The  work in the immediate vicinity of  Princeton was delayed in consequence  of a 'difference of opinion among the  residents as to where ib should come  down into the town. The services of  locating engineer Cleveland were  necessary to settle the -matter and lie  made atrip there at the end of the  week.  Penticton had a gala day em Thursday last to make up for the comparative failure eif the' .Dominion Day celebration which was spoiled by the rain.

Go on that's not right is it?  Sure olel sport duty must be done anel  the law enforced.- Y.ou know you  fellows should not do such a haughty  thing as to play baseball on Sunday.

Although there is plenty of activity  in and around Kerenieos during the  fruit season and the majority are as  busy as they can well be, one has only  to look arounil to see a ileal of business which might be got for the town  if residents -would all pull together.  There are certain kinels 'of business  that will not come unless it is gone  after and when we see it going past to  others who have hael the enterprise to  go after it we have no right to blame  those who get it but only ourselves for  our slackness and lack of unity.

It is rather a strange commentary  on church union and those who claim  to favor it to find members of one  church who have been out nt another  service heading for home at the same  hour when there is to be a service of  the church with which they have  voted to unite, and vice versa. It is  surely a funny way for unionists to  unionize. Can't we look things squarely in the face and even if we do not  lind it convenient to attend all the  services of both denominations let us  try to show some consistency and try  to cultivate a little of the union spirit  so as to get ready for the great event  in case it "really should take place one  of these elays.
