Greenwood Smelter
The New York Mining Age says
that the big furnace afe the Greenwood smelter should give an output afe the rate of slightly over
5,000,000 pounds of copper a year.
A second blast furnace will no
doubt be blown in very soon.
This will bring the production up
to double this figure. A third furnace is usually held in reserve,
but, with the prevailing high prices
of copper, it is quite on the cards
that an attempt will be made to
bring this into operation, wifeh a
view of still further increasing the
company's output. From a metallurgical standpoint, there is no
necessity of keeping this furnace
idle. Its utiliation is only dependent upon an ample supply of ore.
With three furnaces working, the
company should be able to turn
out between 14,000,000 and 15,-
000,000 pounds of copper per year.
Operating profits from one furnace would be at the rate of about
$30,000 per month, or, say, $350,-
000 per year with copper at 20c.
per pound and estimating production cpets at 13c. per pound. Two
furnaces will, of course, double
this figure.

There's a man in Chicago who can

Since any work was last done on

It seems that the prospectors of
Ferguson have tired of waiting for
the so-called capitalist and are now
either taking ore out themselves
with a vew of shipping it or leasing
their properties to practical miners.
The main drawback is the lack of
good trails, nevertheless D. Morgan and E. Garrett have a carload
of ore to ship from Gold Gulch.
J. Livingston has a nice shipment

The Florence Silver Mining Co.
is building a wagon road from the

feet, where the company is putting
in a 2,000-foot pipe line with a 250-
foot fall to generate power for the
mine, according to information
from Ainsworth. A wagon road
is also being built from the mine
to the Highland concentrator,
where the ore from the Florence
will be treated until the company's
own mill is ready. A contract
will be let for the hauling of 70
tons of ore per day to begin on
September 1st and to continue until the company's mill is completed,
which will be about a year hence.

notion. The clergyman no doubt
had read in his boyhood that long
ago the King of England, France
and Prussia could make war when
they liked and conclude peace
when they pleased without consulting their nobles or their common people, the privileges of the
latter indeed being confined to
paying taxes and being killed.
Had he taken the trouble to open
any modern history book he would
have found that those old times
have gone never to return, that if
a King of England desired to be
impeached and dethroned the readiest way for him would be for him
to undertake to declare war without the knowledge or authority of
his ministers and of Parliament.
As a matter of fact he could not do
it if he were so foolish as to
try. By his own dictum he could
not move a single soldier into the
field or send a ship to sea. Even
the Kaiser nowadays has to consult his Chancellor and Reichstag
before beginning hostilities. It
stands to reason that if the British
Parliament has the right to declare
war, which is involved in its right
to keep in office a Cabinet that is
bent on doing so or to expel it from
office, as well as to refuse the grant
of a shilling for military purposes,
the Canadian Parliament possesses
like authority over the participation or non-participation of Canada and has all to say as to whether at this moment she should augment or diminish her contributions to the Imperial cause.
Obviously it wonld have been
better for his own sake if the Winnipeg clergyman had spent a little
time beforehand in acquainting
himself with the elementary features of the case. The growth of
constitutional liberties in England
and her colonies may not be in his
line, but as a teacher of religion he
was bound to speak the truth and
therefore to avoid going off at half
cock on subjects he had not mastered. If clergymen would only
bear in mind that the blunders of
which they are guilty in discussing
mundane affairs detract from their
influence in the pulpit and tend in
some measure to discredit religion
itself, they would not appear so
often on lay platforms without
preparation for the task awaiting
them.

WATER NOTICE.
Fresh Air Treatment
In 1841, when William Thomp-
f.n Osborne was twenty-nine
years old, a group of able physic-
i:nformed him that he was about
to die. He was a consumptive
and his ease was considered hopeless.
William Thompson Osborne died
last week at Newbttrg, N. Y., at
ihe age of 103. Till the end he
was hearty and vigorous and
thoroughly enjoyed life.
For Osborne, after hie had been
definitely condemned to death,
took to living in the open air. He
loved the out of doors and and determined to enjoy to the utmost
the few months of life remaining.
This was long before tha outdoor
treatment of consumption had been
put into practice. Osborne merely
lived in the open because he enjoyed it.
An Antiquated Idea
Speaking at Winnipeg on the
"dishonour" of holding a general
election just now, a clergyman
made light of the theory that the
Government is entitled to know as
soon as possible whether the country approves of what it has already done since the war began
and is willing that it should provide England with a still larger
outlay of Canadian men aud money
iu order that the struggle may be
brought to a successful issue as
soon"'as" possible. "What," he
asked with scorn, "has Canada to
do with such a question? Peace
and war are wholly within the
prerogative of the King; the Im
perial Parliament has very little to
say about them and it follows the
Canadian Government and Parliament have less."
This, of course, is an erroneous
