JOHNSTONE,  -Collector of Cubtoms.  LONDON MINING CAPITALIST.  It  V  I  He l'Mta NelMB on. a Tour of the Koot������  enay Country.  The Kootenay country is being visited  by a gentleman" whose "travels through  -^this-.-region__are, likely to redound to its  advancement.  .The. gentleman is Alex  ~" McLean, of the fiim of McLean & Co., 138  Leadenhall street, London, -E. 0., who  who arrived in Nelson last week. The  fact that the reports ot the riches of  British Columbia have attracted the  attention of this firm ia a matter of congratulation to" the district. The house  of McLean & Co., dealers in' mines and  ' mining properties^ is one of the oldest in  the metropolis. They have offices aud  deal in mines in Australia, New Zealand,  Africa, "Montana and the "Brazils and  arc known as one of the most prominent  and successful firms in the business.  When the Mineb asked Mr. McLean for  ��������� his opinion aa to the prospects of the  Kootenay.country, he replied that it was  rather early for him to vouchsafe nn  opinion. , The district is very young nud  requires n great deal of development aud  large expenditure ot money on this work.  "It all depends on the opening up," said  he. "If the opening up is good it will  make a reputation for the camp. The  fact that a man bores a hole to locate a  tunnel or   shaft  is  no   indication tbat  * there is ore there in paying quantities.  Unquestionably you have plenty of mineral here, but mining is as yet only in its  ' infancy jn the'district. Your prospectors  have not done "enough; tbey are too  poor. But capital will come this way as  the country and its resources become  better known."  ��������� Mr. McLean left for the Slocan country  on the Kokanee yesterday, accompanied  by W. J. Skyner of this city. The latter  gentleman has received the appointment  of agent for McLean & Co., in British  Columbia, and he is to be congratulated  upon securing such a desirable connection.  STRIKE-ON THECP-R.  Situated at the foot of the Slocan lake  these'rival towns "are progressing rapidly. On Sunday last at- Slocan City  the new' Presbyterian, Church was  opened. Rev. Mr'.-.Be'at'y, not .A.... M.  Beatty of Vancouver faine, looks after  the flock here and has a hard proposition to \york. '.'-,'"  Brandon has a public'school under  the guidance of Miss Rath. It ,is attended by about^20 children, only "one  at present coming frond.Slocan City.  The hotels at Brandon are a credit  to any new town. Slocan City-has  also one or two good hotels.   ' .V,  These towns have a very good future  before - them," as when the railway  'from Slocan - lake to the -Kootenay  river is completed, which will doubt-  less'be next year, there will be considerable .traffic between the mines  tributary to these points and the smelters at Nelsonand Trail.     A  There are. quite" a-number of prospects on Springer Creek and Ten Mile  Creek. being developed, and" -which  will in all probability ship considerable  ore during the winter.' The Enterprise;  oh Ten. Mile.,creek, is undoubtedly a  mine,.and sofar'Avork- done on other  properties has shown good results.  The Old Glory, worked by a Seattle  Company, is taking out ore and will  ship in two weeks. The Batchelbr has  been bonded by Mr. D. Breinrier, and  he is working three men "on it. -The  Two Friends and Arlington are"* doing  well. .

McDonald, Drewery and  Riley, members of, the*, Winnipeg  board of trade, bought lots in Sloran  City'and were well pleased with the  healthy look of the townsite.  "Under Mr. Campbell-Johnston's able  management much work is being doue  on the Bondholder 'group,' this is a stock  company owned principally in Vancon-  .ver.__.Tne^group_con'sist8joJ_foiii_clainis.v_  Work, was commenced on August 20tlf  and twenty two men have been at work  continuously since and as soon as the  ground "will allow more .will be put on.  Surface', crosscuts- show- up the  vein the full length ot the claims, 600 0  feet, and assays on the surface were as  high as 316 oz silver. The ore is a dry  ore carrying a small -per centage ot lead,  zinc and copper; Oh the Pine Log claim  a crosscut tunnel has been run 40 feet  cutting the vein, 'a drift run 30 teet on  the vein.-in shipping _ore, from 6 to 15  inches wide, iiud-a. shart is down 15 teet  also showing ore. -Near the junction of  the Pine Log and Bondholder a tunnel  has been, run 50 toot along a 8pur of  tho main vein, to tap the main vein which  shows up 100 feet higher on the bluff. A  crossoot tuunel is also started 125 feet  lower down the hill which is expected to  cut the vein, in 83 feet. There are two  parallel veinB showing above themaiu  lead which carry' nrgentite and sulphides  of silver. Bunk and cook houses to  accommodate 40 men, and manager's  cabin are erected', and a contract let for  making a Wail to.vjoiu the main trail up  Ten Mile. This is a very good showing  for five weeks' work, and the company are  to be congratulated on securing such au  energetic manager. '- >  Waterloo,  - ;The Home-Payne company has made  a", cash offer ot 350,000 for a claim'just  located by John" Empey at Waterloo  camp about half a mile couth of the  Aaron Star mineral claim.. The width of  tlie vein, is said*-to be fifty feet. It beam  free golcl and very high assays have been  got from it.        "    - '    -  -  Waterloo camp springs a sensation on  the public this week. - A number.- of  samples of free arilliug _ gold quartz  brought over from the Maud S., a claim  situated not far from" the Apache and  about a mile south of the Aaron's ' Isle,  were assayed by Richard Marsh and went  as follows; No. 1��������� $14.40; No. 2, $&60;  No. 3,"$38.80; No.".., $96.80"; No. 5,'$103.-  20; No. 6, $13.60; No. 7, $47.60. The ore  from which these assays were obtained  was taken from various places for a' distance of 300 feet along a ledge sixty feet  wide.'-' The samples ,were,made np by C.  B. Etneir, one of the owners of the Maud  S.- There are three claims",, injthe group,  the Maud .S., Silver"Thread, and Snow  Drift. The ledge runs through all three  claims, but it was not found to be as  rich anywhere as on the Mand S.. Some  of the quartz was thickly studded with  gold, but the samples' for assay .showed  no gold that "could be seen without a  glass.    '    _.   " Slocan.."  There are over 300 men working round  Slocan Lake. .  ' Dr. Rankin Dawson, who is in the  Slocan, is expected to complete a bond  on the Alpine Group for $60,000.

The Thompson Group on Four Mile  Creek was bonded last week- by Dr. Bell-  Irving for $40,000 paying 5 per cent cash.  .- The original pick with.which the first  discovery of ore'in the Slocan was 'made  by Eli Carpenter is  on  view   at  New  Denver.      . *."���������"- .    . .  dicate represented by ,Capt.

It is now down.about 20 feel  and shows considerable pyrrhotite.* As  the ore in the old shaft was always white  iron, it is hoped by the management thai  the change in character may prove to be  indicative of better values. '  " Saturday week, the Colombia & Western railway hauled more ore to the  smelter at Trail thau has been done in  any one day since, it-.began opeiating.  The day's work consisted of four trains,  amounting to twenty-seven cars, of about  twelve tous each.

The vein is entirely filled  with ore six to teu inches of which, next  to the hanging .wall, is arsenical iron.  The Mugwump people are jubilant.  ��������� .For some time past Lookout, mountaiu  has been regarded as "one of the most  promising sections ofthe mineral belt  around Rossland. - This has been chiefly  owing to the marvelous . development - of  "the G. R. Sovereign! -' Enough work has  been doue on this claim to demonstrate  that it contains two strong veins of good  grade ore. One of these veins, the smaller, and most northerly, passes through  the Imperial aud Boice claims, which belong to the Imperial Gold Mining "Company. The other vein, on whioh the  Sovereign people are doing most .of their  work at present, passes into tbe ��������� Emma  R. and E*-. V. Debs. These two claims,  with the Prince of Wales, constitute the  group which-W. H- Taylor & Co. have  sold to B. F. Shanbut, of London England. Mr. Shaubut purchased them for  some friends in the old country, and the  consideration is uudeistood to be between  $40:O0O and $50,000. -*..    '   _  ONE   MILLION . DOLLARS.

The news of a strike of the telegraph  operators on the C.P.R. has caused  considerable speculation-in Nelson as  to its cause and probable duration. A  great many people who wished to go  over the'road were uncertain as-to  whether or not the trains were running. It was reported yesterday that  traffic along the line had been fully  resumed, but this statement was again  denied by some who said that the  trains were running very irregularly,  The situation,lso far as we have been .  able to learn, is very uncertain.

Strong and willing bauds lifted Woods  from the floor and conveyed him as  gently ae possible to hisjbed above.  Meanwhile Dr. La Bau was notified and  aa speedily ns possible the sufferer was in  the hands of the physician.'  Woods describes his assailant as a  young, well dressed man of light complexion, and wearing a light suit. As fust  as his legs could carry him he ran in tlie  direction ot the water front, - and his  fleeting form was soon enveloped in thc  darkness of the night.  Two or three parties went to the jail  and roused Constable John Miles from  hia slumbers in order to have him preveut  if possible the escape of the culprit. Tho  other, constable, O'Loan, could not bo  found anywhere and did not put in an  appearance on the scene during thc time  the Mineb man was abroad.  The supposition is that the would-be  murderer was a house breaker, and was  looking for some suitable tools in tho  blacksmith shop with which to ply his  trade. Certain it is that a man who  would attempt to commit murder under  the circumstances and with the slight  and natural provocation which'Woods  gave is capable ot any.desperate deed,  and is ,a*"very dangerous character to be  at large.  Prompt and effectual steps should be  afonce taken for his immediate apprehension, and it is -hoped the proper officials  will do all in. their power tc bring the  desperado to speedy justice. Not ouly  did he murderously assault one. of the  most widely known and popular of  our citizens, but the fair name of Nelson  as a peace-lovfbg and law-abiding town  is at stake.  This morning it is learned that Dr. La  Ban's diagnosis of Woods' wound reveals  the fact that the. bullet struck the shoulder bune and then deflected,'entering the  right lung, where it now lodges nndj  from whence it 'is almost impossible to  extract it. This makes the  more serious than it was at first) supposed to be,* but no immediately fatal re-  salts are anticipated. It is supposed  that the bullet- is of small caliber.

It  is devoutly hoped that a large number  of his countrymen will follow his  illustrious example and go hence.'  Sandon has a newspaper. It was  "established there this week by  old Mr. Lowery who runs the New  Denver Ledge.    '   ,  Rossland .has  only  fifteen  saloons  and the sentiment of the inhabitants  ** is divided between the * proposition to  build a church or another saloon.  The Victoria Colonist would have its  readers believe that it doesn't think  much.ofrMr. Bostock, but its ideas in  this respect are* somewhat offset by  the fact that Mr.. Bostock thinks still  less of the Colonist.  It is" respectfully suggested to the  powers that be at Victoria that in the  appointment of auctioneers for the  sale of Government lands, there are  several Canadians competent to perform the work and cheerfully  willing'  to do so.  > _________,  Some prominent Boston women have,  signed a protest. against the docking  of horses' tails.   That is to say they  -are once more in advance concerning  matters  that are  behind.    In other  ' words.tbey come to the front with a  greivance in the rear. Woman, lovely  woman, is an indispensable anomaly,  but we opine she will offer no objection  to the docking of this tale.     *  "'"" MrrCbarles'-StrBarberwho-for two1  years has served the Miner faithfully  and well as.its editor, has retired from  that position to engage in other, and  more .congenial pursuits. . Mr. St.  Barbe is a newspaper man of experience and ability, and readers of this  : paper will learn of his retirement with  regret. We are glad to know.that  Mr. St. Barbe will continue to make  his home in this metropolis of the  Kootenays.  Our contemporary, the Ledge, prints  a red hot revolutionary article from  an unknown correspondent. This in  itself is a little unusual." The main  drift of the article in question is in-  digation at being draw n into the defensive and offensive policy of Great  Britain, by mean's of Imperial Federation. In face of the thousands of loyal  Canadians who are willing to volunteer  their services to the Mother Country  when there is any chance of a row,  this pigmy squeal from a traitor goes  for little. .= He, doubtless, would very  much rather belong to some nation, if  he could find one, where there was no  chance of any. fighting to be done at  all. He can go; we have no need for  _. cowards undei the old flag.  We made some remarks in our issue  of the 12th, anent the Big, Tree Gold  Mining Company. They were quoted  from the columns of the Engineering  and Mining Journal of New York. The  name of the company should have  been the   Big   Three.   Since   then   a  ''good deal has been said about thi?  company which was capitalized at  $3,500,000. We have received from a  firm of brokers in Rossland a prospectus of this company in which the  El Dorado is said to consist of about  40 acres.- Our contemporary, the Rnss-  lander, says that it is so small as to be  - scarcely worth mentioning, and that  instead of three claims the company  only owns two, unless the proprietors  choose to throw in another claim they  own called tlie Mascot. This seems to  be rather a promiscuous way of promoting a company.  According to the London Mining  World Euglish people are only awaking to the fact that this "colony," as  we are patronizingly styled, is a good  place for investment. The Mining  World says:  "Everybody is now fully convinced  that British Columbia is a marvellously  rich gold field, and that it will not pay  longer to neglect- it. Investors and  speculators have been a long time  awakening to this fact, but now it has  taken serious hold of them, and their  belief, by this gradual enlightenment,  bas become, perhaps, all the stronger.  The present belief in the colony is in  strong contrast with the ignorance and  apathy of the past. Less than five  years .ago it was difficult to persuade  any one to look at anything connected  with British Columbia. Now all are  eager���������and'" will presently . be more  eager���������to hear all they can about the  colony's progress and achievements."  CANADA FOR CANADIANS. ���������  Considerable comment is occasioned  by. the rumored appointment of Dr.  Bowes, an American citizen, as health  officer, at Rossland at a salary of $125  a month. There are competent Canadian physicians in Rossland and elsewhere who would. be glad of the  appointment, and, just why our government should go out of its way to  appoint a foreigner is rather puzzling.  We do not w,ish to say anything  against the doctor because he is an  American, .but we have plenty of  elegibSe and loyal subjects of the Queen  to look after' .before we can afford.to  be generous to our amiable cousins  across the border. A Canadian would  never receive such an appointment in  the domain's of your Uncle Sam unless  he had taken out his papers of citizenship." If Dr. Bowes chooses to-take  the oath of allegiance to the British  Crown in order -to obtain the rights  and privileges that we Canadians  enjoy, well and good; we will in that  rase withdraw any objection' to his  election to any office he is worthy to  enjoy. - But in the meantime let us  keep Canada for the Canadians.  Every day, some of the brightest of  our young men are going across' the  border to make homes and reputations  for ' themselves, because their opportunities for advancement are curtailed  by reason of their enjoying no honor  in their own country, so to* speak.  Their abilities are not recognized, their  hopes are not appreciated, and their  aspirations are frowned u >on bv their  own people and ' those who should  encourage them. The government is  in a sense the parent of the people and  itis to the government that the people  look for encouragementin the development of everything that will tend to  promote the welfare and progress "of  the country. Surely then it is nothing  but right that the government should  use every possible endeavor'to keep  the bone and sinew, the .brawn and  brain, represented by young Canada,  within our own borders; ahd where  desirable appointments, or other'  means of recognition, or encouragement to men of ability, are to be made  let Canadians be selected. They have  a right to expect this, and it is both  humiliating and discouraging to a  loyal Canadian to have to remind our  government of this fact.  ���������The-Seattle-E.-I. -is -another-news-  paper that is publishing long "articles  about "Canada's great hope" of being  permitted to be annexed to the Uuited  States. This is fool talk. There is no  annexation movement in Canada, but  we'll tell the P.-I. that if our mines  continue to make such good showings,  we will before long have the whole of  Seattle and all its spare, capital annexed. That's where the only annexation movement is visible just now.  Matters at Leadville appear to be as  serious as at any time- during the  strike. The trouble began on June 20,'  whe_ the men in two or three ofthe  leading mines walked out. The union  scale of wages in Leadville was $3 a  day for everybody; but in 1893, when  the price of silver dropped below 60  cents an ounce, an agreement was  made t hat $2.50 should be accepted for  some classes of work until silver should  return to 83 cents. This agreement,  the miners afterward declared, was  unfair as many of the mines paid large  dividends. It was to enforce tbe original scale of $3 that the men struck.  About 3000 men are involved. Within the last two weeks several mines  have resumed work and last* week the  output was 1200 tons daily, against  20rXJ tons before the strike.  Our list of new incorporations, taken  fi om last weeks Gazette, is a remarkable one. It contains the * announcement of the Olive company with a  capital of twenty millions, which has  been formed to buy what is little more  than a prospect. The London Hill  Company is also announced. This is a  company to take over the well known  property 'on the north side of Bear  Lake belonging to Mr. T. J. Pioctor  and Major Moerkerke. The ore is dry  and of a high grade. A great deal of  development work has been done and  if the ledge is cut in the lower tunnel,  as they expect it will be, in another  forty feet, the property will be exceedingly valuable. All sensible men are  glad ' to see the straightforward  method  adopted by this company of  boldly offering their shares at par.  The Reco is also consolidated. This  has for some time been known' as one  of the richest claims in the, Slocan.  The old original spelling" of the .name,  Rucceau, is we suppose now to be forever dropped and its Americanized  version, Reco, adopted in its place.  We understand these shares are also  offered at par. The. Athabasca Company is formed to take over Messrs.  Neelands claims on Morning Mountaiu  just above the town, which was recently bonded by Mr. C. D. Rand.

ON THE MINES  OF BJUTISH COLUMBIA.   ���������  vestment,  present a  have been  In ihe - Domiuion Parliament ou tbe  16th September, 'Mr. Bostock moved,  Th.it in the opinion of this House it will  be iathe interest of immigration a_u thc  development of the Dominion that tbe  government should collect,"through (be  department of agriculture, all th?-;in formation*'possible with respect to the mining interests of British Columbia and  * the, other provinces of the Domiuion, and  distribute-it. He gave the output of tbe  minerals and its value up to the 30th  June last for the district of AVest Kootenay, coupled with other statistics, in  oider to show tho extraordinary richness  of the ��������� mineral deposits of the province,  and emphasized (he need of takiug proper steps,to attract the attention of capitalists to the province. Proceeding he  said: Those Ggures show the amount of  business _���������.._}*��������� done in the country; and  tbe large field wnich exists there for iu-  It is only natural that al  number of companies should  floated in this country for the  purpose of interesting investors in the  " mining development that is now goirig-  on, but we find that these companies are  being put upon the market of EasterL  Canada in a very loose and unsatisfactoi y  manner. It will be a great drawback  and disadvantage- to that count ly if  some steps 'are not taken to check the  indiscriminate floating'-*������������������* such companies  in which the prospectuses issued are  most unsatisfactory and contain exceedingly misleading statements. ��������� From the  way such prospectuses are drawn up  they would appear to be drawn upsoleJy  for "the purpose .of misleading the investing public. 1 have here a prospectus  which has been published in one of tiie  papers in the East���������the prospectus of a  miue called the .Nest Egg aud Palo Alto."  In that prospectus the names of leading  men in the province of British Columbia  are printed as being cauiiected with this  mine, but after it was brought out iu  Toronto one' of the gentleman whose  nanies appeared *ou the prospectus wrote  that he had nothing to do with it. It  will be interesting to the house if I read  one or two replies given by gentlemen  " whose names are mentioned in this  . prospectus as being connected with the  mines. Mr. Turner, premier'of British  Columbia, wrote as follows: "I know  nothing about the prospectus of the'Nest  Egg^ and Palo Alto. I do not guarantee  auy statements made by George A. Case.  He .has no authority to'" act for me."'  Mr. Turner is one of the gentlemen  whose uames Appear as beiug interested  "-in the Nest Egg, and of course, being  premier of British Cohimbia, his.naiue  would. natuially tend to make in ves"  tors in the East think that the property was a good one. Mr. E. V.'  Bodwell, a leading lawyer in Victoria,  wrote: "I am not in a way responsible for the prospectus of the Palo  Alto of Nest Egg .mines. I doonot  know what statements it may contain.  I do not know Mr. Case, and he does  not represent me; .1 own some shares  in the Palo Alto, but have no interest  whatever iri the Nest Egg. No one  has any authority-to deal with tuy  name in connection with either the  Nest Egg or Palo Alto. The .name of  Lieut.-Governor Dewdney, the present  * Lieut.-Governor of British Columbia,  was also mentioned in this nrospectus.  He was in England when this prospectus was brought out, but Mrs.. Dewdney telegraphed that theLicut.-Gover-  nor was not in any  way responsible  - for the statements made in that prospectus. This is a very good specimen  of the way in which these prospectuses  are being' got up, and the use that   is  Cybeing made at the present time of the  names of leading men in the province  for the.pu.po__ of getting investors in  the East, who cannot learn a great  deal of the development of that country to put their money into these concerns. , 1 hope the government will see  their way of taking hold of this matter,  and that they will be able to introduce  some legislation that will prevent  prospectuses of this kind being placed  upon the market, ond that it will hold  those interested in getting up these  companies responsible to the public  generally for the-' truth of the statements tbat they make in these prospectuses." A leading newspaper in  Rossland,  speaking   of   these foreign  -companies,   says:��������� "Especially   some  .provision should be inserted in the act  which will prevent foreign companies  -from disposing of their holdings without consulting their shareholders, and  even in opposition to their wishes." 1  may say that the paragraph has reference more especially to oue company  that was organized'and floated under  the laws of the State of Washington,  whose directors were enabled to entirely override the wishes ot the share-  * holders, and dispose of the mine in a  way that was a great detriment to the  shareholders and a great damage to  the  camp   generally.     Now   in'  the  , Province of British Columbia we are  very anxious to see foreign capital  brought into the country, and we  recognize the undesirable character of  some of these companies that are now-  being floated on the market in thc  East. If this sort of thing is allowed  to continue,  and  the investors lose  GAZETTE.NOTICES.;.''-',  I From' thc B. C- Gazette of 21th Scpt.,*_$U6].  A delegation from Toronto is asking  for Sj?50,0il0 for the' exhibition next  yeai.  Mr. Bostock made an admirable  speech on the railway loan delimitation bill and strongly argued its passage.  Mr. Prior strongly urged the appointment of Mr. Eberts to the vacant judgeship and trusted that the government  would not -appoint' to- the position one  so utterly unworthy as Mr. Joseph Mni-  tiu, who-ie name, ho understood, had  been spoken of in connection with the  matter. -   -,.���������'���������  Hon. Mr. Laurier urged Mr. Prior not  to take stock in everything he saw in the  newspapers. In regard to Mr. Martin,'  Mr. Laurier continued, Hen, Hugh'John  Macdonald has referred to him in highly  eulogistic terms, stating' that he-- was  qualified to fill any position in the couutry. ' However, the case was much more  pressing .than he was aware of. He had  been surpiised to learn that the Vacancy  had .-existed for eight months and the  government proposed to fill the vacancy  at an 'early date. It is obvious, however,  that the late administration was to blame  Cor not making the appointment  The following is Hon. Mr. Foster's  resolution which wasvdefeated by the  government with a majority of Ufr:  "That since 1779 the Liberal party of  Canada has in the main evinced uncompromising hostility- to the principle, and practice of protection, as applied to the producing interests of  Canada; that during this period they  have, from time to time, advocated (a)  commercial union will the United"  States, (b) continental free trade, (c)  unrestricted reciprocity . with the  .United States with discriminations  against Great Britain and other countries, (d) free trade as practiced'in  Great Britain,-and (el tariff for revenue only, in" which there should be no  vestige of protection.  That the authoritative platform of  June 1898, declared that "the customs'  tariff of the dominion should not be  based, as it is now upon the protective  principle,"'which is denounced as radically unsound, and it wasresolved as  the contention pf ������the party that*any.  tariff changes based oh that principle  .must fail to afford substantial relief  from the'burdens under which the  country labors. "  That the government, through its leader, has determined not to introduce any  measure dealing with the tariff during  Llie present session.i      ,i  That the platform of the Liberal party  aud the utterances of the leader of the  party, and the principle organs and supporters have led the couutryto believe  that a radical change is imminent iu the  principle upon which the tariff is to be  based. -\  That the uncertainty and delay consequent upon these announcements will  result in great" disturbance in business,  and serious loss to the commercial and  producing interests of the country":': ���������  That this House, while.willing to allow  reasonable time to perfect "details, is of  the opinion that a declaration of the principals upon which the government proposes to base its tariff revision should be  at once made:  And-tbat no tariff will be wise, or satisfactory, which does not proceed upou the  basis of an adequate and sufficient  protection for the interests of * the  country."

The sum paid, or the terms of the sale,  are not yet made public, nor is anything  said of the plan likely to be adopted in  the working of these properties, but it is  intimated that it will be on a much larger  scale than heretofore, and that probably  smelting and refining works -will be  established on or near the site, to render  unnecessary the heavy charges for hauling the ore. The investment ofso much  British capital at one deal in Trail creek  district means that more will follow, and  that British Columbia mines may be said  to be almost sure to occupy the attention  of London men of means, as South Africa  and Western Australia have in "times  past.'

A practical and simple method of matting  sulphide ores, such as nickel, copper, gold and  silver ores. In localities where lead ores and  fuels are scarce and almost unattainable, our  pyritic, water jacketed ..Matte Smelter has  been recognized with highly satisfactory results, and-has been thoroughly tested on various pyritic, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80 tons per d.iy. It is the most  practical, cheapest and'simplest method, of  gold and silver ore matting and concentrating  that is known to-day. .- ���������   '      _  It requires no extraordinary skill, no lead  ores, no fluxing material, and no fuel of any  kindfor'thc smelter after it is started, lho  sulphur in the ore is its natural fuel only, and  sits cost has no comparison with any otnerpro-  cess of concentrating. .-   '.'""������������������ ���������-  We are prepared to furnish any size or capa-,  city plant-** complete to substantial .mining  people, set it up and furnish our men to run it  for them on easy payments.
