The ore passes from the lower trani-  way tipple  to two jaw crushers  by  which it is reduced to li inch size,.and  is conveyed then to the mill bins, having  the capacity  of 1000 tons.     The  crushed ore ,passes   automatically to  the four 10-stamp batteries made up of  1050 lb stamps.    Formerly each stamp  dropped 6 in, and 106 per inin. Within  the  last three months such  changes  were made as to give the stamp a 1\  inch drop and 90 per inin.     The result  is said to have been an  increase in the  crushing   capacity   of 600    tons per  month   for the  40  stamps,   without  making any change   in   the   screens  which are 20-mesh.    Certain  installations of new equipment in the mill are  being made without interrupting the  regular operations.     When  the new  equipment is ready the batteries will  crush to only 16 mesh, the pulp wili,be  classified 'by 8 Bunker Hill   screens,  the coarse  product to be concentrated  over 8 corrugated belt vanners; the  vanner tailing will be pulverized to  100 mesh  in a 100 ton Gates tube-mill,  haying Montana-Tonopah lining.  The  tube-mill product will  unite with the  fine'.'from  the  Bunker   Hill   screens  (which  runs  less  than  60 mesh), and  after   being   rcground   will   pass   to  classifiers   and hydraulic   si/.ers;   the  coarse from  the latter is to be concentrated on  16 smooth-belt vanners, the  fine from    the/'steers   passing  to   10  Deister tables.     The middling   from  these  tables is to  be reconcentrated  over  two other similar tables.     The  tailings   from the   smooth-belt    machines  will pass to the sand vats; the  tailing from the Deister tables to the  slime vats.    This shows the method of  separating the sand from the slime.  No part of the sand will reach  the  leaching vats coarser than 60-mesh.  The cyanide plant, as formerly constituted,  provided for leaching the sand  12 days in the upper vats and 14 in the  lower,   but when   the   new   methods  shall be in use, by the time this is iir  print,  there  will  be only  the single  treatment of the sand, and the proportion of sand will be but 25 per cent  of the whole.   The plan is to collect  the slime in four 200-ton settlers, from  which it is  to be pumped into six 200-  ton agitating tanks, wherein mechanical agitators aro to be used.   The gold  solution  is to be decanted from   the  agitating  tanks and  treated  by  two  Merrill precipitation presses, in which  zinc dust is  used.    The slime residue  in the agitating tanks���������that remaining after   decantation���������will   pass   to  two  Oliver1 Milter presses, the solution  to  pass  to  the precipitation presses,  and   the  caked "slime  into  the river.  There is  no crushing  in cyanide solution, the first cyanide, being introduced   into   the sand  vats  and   into  the  agitating tanks.    Under  old arrangement and  methods  from   15 to 20 percent of the total saving has been made  on  the  amalgamating plates,  55  percent  by  concentration,  and   the  balj  airce by cyanidatiou.     Since January  1,   1010,   the  total  extraction reached  98 per cent.    Discarding  the amalgamating    plates  is   being   considered,  though   this  may not be done.    The  concentrate product, the base of which  is arseno-pyrite,  amounts to 200 tons  per- month and li'iis high in gold.    By  coarse-crushing in the stamp batteries  followed by regrinding, it is estimated  that   the   capacity  of the   mill  can be  increased from 160 to 200 tons per day.  The  consumption of cyanide   per ton  of sand and  slime treated amounts to  !, lb., a.nd  costs l()c per ton.    The cost  of  mining and  nulling,  as shown by  the last   three months  operating, was  a little   less that .$5.00  per ton  of ore  treated.     Recent experiments  led  to  Continued on 1'nge l''uor  A carload of motors and other electrical equipment from  the Westing-  house Co. for the Hedley Gold Mining  Co. came  in last week.    The building  over the Oliver filter presses has been  all closed in and the new corliss engine  is almost set up and  ready for the  steam.     This  week! they, are getting  ready to raise the  big smoke stack for  the new boilers.     This is no light job  as the smpkestaek is 80 feet:long"and 5  | feet in diameter and is set upon breeching supported by masonry.   All possible .speed-'..-is'- being made   with  the  work of installation to get everything  housed rind in  working order- before  winter sets,in, but the delay in getting  the machinery sent forward  by the  manufacturers' is"'"proving' a   serious  draw  back.   Most of this machinery  was contracted for early in the spring  but'some of it has  not yet been shipped.  Editor of the Oroville Gazette Tells of  .      His Labor Day Visit  K. V. OPERATIONS  TO IMPORT GAME BIRDS  Prairie Chickens   to  be Secured  From  Manitoba to Stock Districts  Taking advantage of the provisions  of the Manitoba Game Act in this respect Hon. Dr. Young has communicated with  the  responsiblt!  minister .of  the sister province requesting permission  for   the  securih.s-,   through  the  chief game warden of Manitoba, of a  number b/f thebirds^ jfiiiid)inimals indigenous to the prairie province.   It is  expected that this step is preliminary  to the introduction  of a considerable  number of prairie chickens   for   the  purpose of  stocking   those   areas of  British Columbia  favorable for their  development in numbers and strength  The Columbia grouse,' more generally  known  as the prairie chicken, shares  with the grey goose the honor of being the great game  bird of Manitoba  and there are many districts of this  province in which  undoubtedly it can  be acclimatized successfully, to prove  o. valuable addition  to the great game  asset of British Columbia.  HONOR THE FLAG  In Future the British  Ensign Must Have  First Place in Procession.  In Winnipeg hereafter there will be  no processions in which people; can  display all kinds of notional flags  either excluding or relegating to the  background the British flag.  A recent bylaw states that iir every  procession or parade in which the applicant for any such license shall display any national flag or flags, the  said applicant shall display the British  national flag unfurled of not less than  four arrd one-half feet by nine feet in  size at the head of such procession or  parade. If any flags of other nations  are displayed in such procession or  parade, the. same shall be unfurled  under or- behind the British national  flag, and for every flag of any other  nation so unfurled or displayed at  least two British national flags of the  same size and dimensions.  ON   THE GOLF LINKS  There was a. smaller turnout on Saturday last for the golf foursomes, but  those who took part in the afternoon's  play had a good time. In the first set  L. C. Rolls and Mrs. Rotherham were  opposed by A. Megraw and Mrs. Jones  the former couple winning on a. score  of 35 to 37 with handicaps deducted.  Tn the next set It. James and Miss  Bond beat H. A. Hincks and Mrs.  Janrieson, score -ID to -12. The greens  since the last work wa.s done on them,  are in better shape by far than they  ever were before and as a result we  may soon look for some lowering of  J.he records.  The secretary reports responses to  the call for- payment of dues as fairly  good. ft is expected that another  game of foursomes will be played orr  Saturday coming.   -Or-   Tim Kootenay-Boundary fruit crop  has doubled during the past year-.  Ffty-eight car-loads of apples is the  estimate made.  The 'following" generous' tribute to  the camp by editor Dallam of the Oroville Gazette is but another.evidence  of the neighborly spirit which has always actuated his newspaper work  and shows that no sectional prejudice  ever prevents him advocating the  claims of the whole district regardless  of boundary lines.; Of this first trip to  Hedley he says: \ ,      ;  "When our Canadian cousins take a  holiday they enter into the spirit of  the occasion and make it a holiday in  fact as well as in name. Moreover these  gatherings are pleasing to visitors  from this side of the line, because our  neighbor's are hospitable people aiid  no matter how large the crowds they  are always Orderly and good riatured.  The weather was at times .-showery,'  but a little water did not dampen the  ardor of the participants, and the programme of sports was carried through  from start to fiinish and were, very interesting. These consisted of horse,  races, foot races, gun club -.shoots,- base  ball game, etc. Tlie crowd was not as  large as might have been expected,  but that did not detract from either  the success or pleasure of the occasion.  "Hedley is a mini tig camp, and owes  its existence to the Nickel Plate mine,  one of the richest mining projects in  British Columbia. Unfortunately when  the town was established the table  hinds were included in Indian reservations, and the founders had to do the  best they could under.the;'circumstances, selecting a narrow canyon, in real-  itv the bed of Twenty-mile creek for  a site. The site is grandly picturesque,  as close at hand, oh both sides of the  gulch, the mountains shoot up precipitously to a great height. To a timid  stranger: the town looks as though it  invited destruction, both from flood  and avalanche, but the residents evidently entertain no such fears, as the  town, what there is of it, is substantially built, and there are a number of  cosy and substantial homes. The various stores carry large and well selected stocks, a bout every branch of business is represented, and the people  seenr happy, contented and prosper^  ous.  "The chief  resource  behind Hedley  is the mineral wealth in the surrounding mountains,  and if rich  mines will  build up a city Hedley in time will become one. of the most important places  in British Columbia. The Nickel Plate  mine is a wonder,  and its fame has  spread far and wide.    An  enormous  amount of money has been spent in  mills and equipments, but the product  of the  mine has repaid  the  expenditures over and oyer again.     There is  an immense  reserve of high grade .ore  in the  mine that will pay heavy dividends for years  to come.     Time prevents any detailed description of the  property.  It is one of the best eqippod  properties along the border-, the stamps  are   constantly  falling,   and   the.  ore  yields a large and steady income.   But  the rich deposits of the neighbor-hood  are not confined to a single property.  There are a number of other holdings  in tbe  vicinity that have just as good  evidence of riches as  were apparent  on the  Nickel Plate when   that group  was   first opened  up,  anil  several of  them   will   he   under   active  development before many months.   Out.' property right above the town,   the Kingston, has  recently  been   bonded   by a  company   represented  on   the ground  by A. ('reelnran, formerly of this place,  and   he expects   to   commence  work  this fall,   Considering its hacking, few  towns iir   the northwest has  brighter  prospects ad head than Hedley.  Work Actively  Progressing at Merritt���������  Material Laid  Down at Midway  Survey Work at Penticton  The Kettle Valley people were a bit  slow about getting to work,  but recently   matters    have   been   moving  more satisfactorily.     Work has been  underway at Merritt   for a couple  of  months or "more, and  recently further  contracts were let on the Merritt end.  At Midway ''material is being assembled and'-..work is  likely  to begin any  day.     At Penticton  also   things are  commencing  to   move.     The   Herald  tells of the arrival there of the surveyors and  outlines  the   work   they   are  undertaking.    The Enderby Press also  gives  the  substance  of  an   interview  with President Warren.    It says:  ',:' "Mr. J. J. Warren, president of the  Kettle Valley  railroad,  passed down  the Valley to Penticton on Monday.  Mr.   Warren goes  to Penticton   to go  over the work of locating fire line into Penticton  with   Mr.   McCullough,  tngineer of the system who  has just-  come over the  proposed  route from  Merritt.    "We have surveys into Penticton  from both   the south-east and  north  west,"  said Mr.  Warren  in  a  recent interview.  "But we have never-  linked  them together,   and this work  will now be done."   "If we can get  the necessary  heavy timbers and crib  work   into   Penticton    this   fall." he  continued,  "we will  commence work  ���������on. the   building of our  wharf," Regarding , the   construction    of yards  and, roundhouses   in   Penticton,  Mr.  Warren  stated  that these  would  be  built to  take care of locomotives and  cars as soon as construction work was  far enough advanced.  ENORMOUS INCREASE  Extent to Which the Fruit G jwing Industry has Developed in the  Okanagan  (Enderby Press)  Okanagan J^ake is a very  busy locality this month.     The fruit crop is a  mammoth one compared with former  years:  prices  are high,  demand firm'  and the quality of the fruit  the best.  Canneries are  running   full   time   at  Kelowna, Peachhmd and Summer-land  taking care of the over ripe fruit.    As  an indication of the. enormous increase  in the  yield over former years,  the  record of Summer-land may be quoted.  Last year but few trees,   comparatively speaking,  had come into  bearing,  and the output was 10-caiioads.     This  year it is estimated that the   output  will run near the 100-carload mark.

It is pleasing to know   that the  differences arising out of the Newfoundland   fisheries    have  been  finally settled hy the Hague Tribunal  to which  body  it had   been   referred, and   it is  still more pleasing   to  note that  this  time everybody appears  to  be satisfied,     each--  side    claiming     victory.  There were in all   some seven points  up for adjudication   and  out  of   the  seven two   weie  decided   in   favor  of  Britain's contention   and five for  the  United-States.    Britain   find  Canada  are disposed to regard the contention  involved in the points decided in Britain's favor   as  of far greater importance than all the others put together.  Altogether, there is an entirely different feeling   concerning   the decision  than that which  prevailed after the  Alaskan   boundary   award    of   seven  years ago.

Tliat    paper  stales that Premier  McBride has been  approached   by   Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier  through the medium   of .John Hendry  and offered his choice of any portfolio  in the Laurier cabinet with the agreement of accession   to the  Liberal leadership if he will abandon the Conservative  party before the next election.  United   Ua.nada. in   making  the. statement claims to   have  obtained  its  information from a  prominent resident  ol Victoria and   to  have  had  it confirmed by one  of Sir AVilfrid's  most  intimate   friends   in   Quebec.

The lay-over at Oroville which  would entail loss of time both going  and coming, is responsible for the  small representation from the Siinilkaineen.  A short time ago Mr. "W. T. Shatford, on behalf of the S. 0. Land Coin-  pand, signed a deed bequeathing to  the Municipality of Penticton one of  the most beautiful lake shore frontages  in the Okanagan Valley. It is proposed to call the new resort Shatford  Park.  Mr. .1. R. Brown, Indian agent, was  in town on Tuesday. Since the division of the district and the apportionment of the Okanagan and Similkameen reservations to Mr. Brown he is  able to give closer attention and hence  the visits of the agent to this valley  are likely to he more frequent than  heretofore.  O. H. Carle, fruit jobber, is keeping  the stores well supplied with Keremeos fruit, and just now the Crawford peaches which are in fine, condition, are very much in demand.

Hunters in this vicinity see very few  prairie chickens and are of impression  that the close season should have been  retained here as well as in Okanagan,  Kainloops and Kootenay electoral districts. It will be noted that the government tire importing prairie chicken from Manitoba to stock certain  districts where there are none, which  would imply a scarcity that would  scarcely warrant their slaughter in  other portions of the province.  There was it vigorous snowfall at  the Nickel Plate for a while last week,  which was a forcible reminder of what  is in store. Altogether the past summer has been a cold one in comparison with former .summers. A glance  tit the weather report for the week  just past will show the mean temperature here in Hedley to he 20 degrees  lower than the same week of last year.  To some epicures hogs may be all  right in the pan but to others they  would look much better in the pen  than parading on the sidewalks on the  front street. Neither is it an edifying  sight to see a couple of hogs stern to  stern on the. sidewalk fighting oil: a  band of yelping clogs that are trying  to outflank them while dogs and hogs  are each trying to outdo the other in  noise and discord.  The idea that the mountains around  Hedley are too high for agricultural  purposes received a vigorous jolt from  the disphiy of apples grown by Anton  Winkler on his ranch adjoining the  town on ground about 2500 feet higher  than Hedley. The apples are of the  Alexander variety and are large,  shapely and highly colored. Those  who took up this land were not counting on it for fruit growing and were  well enough satisfied if it should produce grasses, grains and the. hardier  vegetables, but here is evidence that  even in a season which was thought  earlier on to have beerr rather trying  owing to spring frosts, it is seen that  these tipples have come through in  this shape. Land in these valleys is  bound to become a valuable asset even  if located on the mountain side.

The article  from start to  finish is a deliberate  mis-statement of  facts  regarding  the fruit-growing industry  in the  piovinceof British Columbia and the States of Washington  and Oregon,  and calculated  to knock  the districts named,  at least among  those  who  are  not acquainted    with  the vagaries of our old friend.    In the  two  columns  of vaporings  on his experiences  in Canada and the Western  States  he does not even hint at  what  we  should   consider  his nost interesting experience;    It is too bad because  without blasting  his   reputation   for  veracity   he   could    have   given   the  readers  of the  Post a few  columns of  intensely  interesting  reading matter.

Though she had complained for some time past of not feeling well the. serious nature of her illness was not known either to her  physician or friends until a few days  before her death, the disease making  rapid progress as it neai-etl the end.
