POST OFFICE STORE  OIL PROCESS  A SUCCESS  Preliminary Experiments Made  by Snowshoe People.  PHOGBESS OF NEW WORKING SHAFT  Snail lloltl InKslltd, but Will Have One of  ISO ll-irte Power In the Near Fulure  Noi Shipping Lately.  As is well known, the management  of the Snow-shoe Gold and Copper  Mines, Ltd., has been making experiments this winter with the oil piocess  ��i concentration, a quantity of ore  having been sent to London, England,  f>r this purpose.' It is understood  that the preliminary tests of the ore by  oil process have been successful, but  timber experiments are. now being  in-ide One advantage of the oil  method of extraction is that by it (he  values of copper and gold saved  amount to considerably moic than by  other proposed methods. It it absolutely necessary, however, to have plenty  of water in connection with the oil pro  cess., The Snowshoe management will  continue the experiments.  The oil process is new to British  Columbia, there as yet being no such  plant in operation in tliis province. Its  chief advantage is the low cost of treat  ment of ores, which i> a great item in  low grade camps. A plant, of this kind  was brought out from Londan to Nelson by the late J. Roderick Robertson,  manager ofthe London & British Columbia'Gold Fields, Ltd., before his  death,'for'ixperimental purposes, but  so far there is no report of its having  been used.  Snowshoe Shaft Work.  Work on the new three compartment  incline shaft on;the.Snowshoe has been  steadily progressing for the last two  months and this week the 25 horse  power hoist, formerly used on the old  shaft, has been taken temporarily to  the new shaft. A little later a new-  hoist of about 150 horse power capacity, one of the largest in the district,  will be installed ai the new shaft. It  will have a power of' lifting 500 tons  every 24 hours from; a depth of 1,000  feet, and will be. fitted with skips.  Then the present hoist will be taken  back to the old shaft. The new 20-  drill compressor and boilers, now being manufactured in the east,:will also  be installed this spiing.  Three forces of miners have been  working on the new shaft���-one sinking frpm the surface, another raising  from the 200 foot level, and a third  raising from 200 foot level. This week  connections were, made with the 100  foot level, and in a short time the 200  foot level will also be connected.  In sinking this shaft the miners have  been in ore nearly all the way, contrary to tbe expectations of the management. Ore was also encountered  in making excavations for the hoist  just erected.  Owing to the fact that most of the  men were employed on the shaft, no  sloping of ore has been done for some  weeks, and consequently none shipped.  The crosscut in oie in the surlace  workings, or glory hole, went through  the ora.body some 40 feet, and then  drifted in ore about 150 feet more.  This will give a. large tonnage of excellent ore when Supt. Astley is prepared  to begin shipments once more.  C. P. R. depot. The members of the  council agreed that this is a much need  ed improvement, and will try to arrange  to get it done, if the treasury will stand  it. "���' .\'."'  '.<���     '���'. '���  ,'-.

Members Werp Appointed by Ihe Ci'y  Council.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council, Mayor Rumberger and Aids.,  Munroe, McRae, Marshall, and Gralv  am were present. A number of communications were read by the clerk.  Among them R. H. Karatofsky asked  to have a sidewalk built along First  St. adjoining the McMillan block, in  which he has rented the coiner store.  The superintendent of education wrote,  and die receiver of the town of Wellington was anxious to sell some fire  paraphernalia, etc., while there were  two more applications for the place of  city clerk, which becomes vacant on  the 30th inst. The latter will be considered next week.  A generally signed petition was presented asking the city to construct a  sidewalk on Knob Hill avenue to the  Since shipments first began at the  Winnipeg mine, some two years ago,  an average of all the cars of ore sent  out, including those which proved  almost barren, gives $14 per ton. This  is certainly one of the best showings  yet made in any mine in the Boundary district, and if it can be maintained will place the Winnipeg in the  front class of our niines.  A few days ago work was resumed  on what is known as the station vein  on the 300 foot level, from which some  500 tons or more of ore was shipped  last fall, with good results. The drills  have again broken into a fine quality  of magnetic ore, carrying gold values  largely, some five or six feet in width,  and this week a couple of cars of this  ore will'be sent down to the Greenwood smelter, as well as a car from  what is known as the railway workings.  For the last six weeks, owing to sinejter  conditions, no more ore has been sent  out, but this week shipments have  been resumed,"and. it is expected will  becontinued from this on.  Richard Plewman, managing director ofthe Winnipeg, returned last week  from New York, where he went on  business ofthe company, and it is understood that he was successful in  placing a blo-k of shares of the company. Mr. Plewman is one of those  who have always had great faith in the  ultimate outcome of the Winnipeg,  and he still believes that it will he one  of the.great mines of this section. His  many friends hope that he will he successful.  When in Grand Porks Saturday, the  Pioneer man had a talk with James H.  Kennedy, chief engineer of the V., V.  & E. railway, which is now building  from Marcus to Republic, by way of  Cascade and Grand Forks. The Jim  Hill people had just put up the $50,*  000 which John A. Manly has exacted  for his ranch, which the company had  to cross, a few miles east of Grand  Forks, and Mr. Kennedy was arranging to crowd the work of getting into  Republic at the earliest possible moment.  As is well known, the V., V.   &  E-  have all along had this camp of Phoenix as one of the chief objective points,  and routes have been surveyed, one by  way of Forth of July creek and Summit camp, and the other   by   way   of  Midway,    Greenwood    and   Summit  camp.    This work was done last year,  the surveyors being in   the   field   for  many months, getting the grades down  to one percent���an old habit of James  J.Hill's.'  . The Pioneer man asked Mr. Kennedy if the company still intended to  reach this camp this year, and the, reply most unequivocably was that they  did, and that he hoped that they would  begin work before long".     He was not  yet certain whether the Fourth of July  route or; the Greenwood  route  would  be.selected,  as  neither  one had yet  befen decided: .upon.   Possibly the rails  would be laid over both routes.     But  Mr.   Kennedy was positive that the  line would be built in the hear future.  He thought'that the new   line  would  create a large new tonnage of ore, and  not depend entirely  upon  getting it  away from the C. P. R.  If one can place any reliance   upon  the word of the chief engineer, it would  Work at Recalling Stitioai Will Begin Next  Week Tours-toy.

PHOENIX IS  THE LOSER  By Interpretation of the Public  School Act  FIRST PAYMENT WAS JUST $39 SHV  It is Merely a Question ol Wbetker Averages  Are Figured From Date ol rsymtat, Ac  cording to Act.  Under date of March 31st the  superintendent of education at Victoria  had a check sent to the City of^Phoe  nix for $350.60, which he claims was  the   amount  due the city from the  government under the new school   act  appear that there is every  reason  to Itor ti*e .firs' quarter of 1902.   The  act  believe that this summer will be an  active one in and around Phoenix on  account of r.iilway construction alond,  as there��are many miles of heavy rock  work within a short distance of this  place.  Later Developments.  Last Tuesday another injunction was  granted at Victoria preventing the V.,  V. E. people from continuing work  until argument can be heard, May 6th.  The injunction was granted at the  application of the attorney-general, the  Kettle Valley railway being the relator.  The alleged grounds were that the chart  er of the V., V. & E. had expired and  that the road was being buil' for other  purposes than those given out.  Wednesday a telegram was sent from  Ottawa that the V., V. & E. has. been  granted a charter by the railway committee of the privy council at Ottawa,  alter a hard fight with its opponents.  It is thus thought that Jim Hill has  won his fight after all, and will be enabled to go ahead with his railway  plans in this section.  Press Association Formed,  At Halcyon Hot Springs, last Saturday, the Press Association organized by the election of F. J. Dean ol  the Kamloops Sentinel, president;  Fred Simpson of the Cranbrook Herald, vice-president;Thomas McNaught,  secretary-treasurer. The officers, with  W. K. Esling ofthe Trail News, C. !���'.  Smitheiingale of the Slocan Drill,  E. A. Haggin ofthe Revelstoke Herald, and W. li. Willcox ofthe Phoenix  Pioneer, constitute the executive board.  David Bogle of the Victoria Colonist,  David Carley of the Nelson Economist,  and J. F. Dean are the committee on  legislation. A special meeting will be  called in a month or two.-  William H.Norris, of Midway, was  married on the 8th inst. to Mrs. Ida  Mandc McDonald, of Ladner, B. C,  at the latter place.  Supt. I lodges says that the Granby  smelter is now running through an  average o( 1,600 tons of ore per day.  Rev. W. A. Robins, of Greenwood,  will conduct the services at St. John's  church tomorrow at 11 and 7.30, and  will preach at both services.  A. W. More, a well known Victoria  mining broker, made his first visit to  Phoenix yesterday, and went through  the Knob Hill mine.  The-Midway base ball club has  been organized for the season with  S. A. Crowell, president; W.H.Webb,  secietary*treasurer, and J. H. Push,  captain.  George Pratt, a C. P. R. brakeman,  was injured last week in front of the  Old Ironsides ore bins, by being struck  on the head by a heavy piece of ore.  Several stitches were needed.  John Mcintosh, who was injured at  the Knob Hill mine in January, has  written from Montreal that the oculist  he travelled so far to see could do  nothing to restore his sight. Mcintosh  js on his way back,  distinctly states that the basis of payment shall be calculated on the average number of scholars present for the  six months "preceding the DATE of  payment." The superintendent interprets this to mean for the six mouths  preceeding the 1st of January. In this  case it makes quite a difference to this  city, as the average is constantly growing.  For the last six months up to the  first of January the average attendance  was 70.12, which at $20 per pupil, the  amount allowed, is equal to $1,402.40,  or $35��*6�� for the quarter���which was  the amount recoived.  For the six months to the 31st of  March the average was 76.12, or <li,*  522,40 for the year, or $380.60 for the  quarter. This makes a difference each  quarter of $30, which the school trustees and the city council think we are  entitled to by a literal or any other interpretation of the wording of the  act.  The superintendent has been written  to in the matter, but he insists that he  is right, and thus far his decision appears to be final.  For the last two seeks or more the  management of the Granby mint's in  this camp has been putting every man  at woik that offered himself. This  fact has been spread outside, and every  train brings in more men. The men  are employed largely as muckers and  carmen. There are machines enough  to break down the ore, and they, have  no trouble in doing this, but the trouble  was-to handle it fast enough at first, so  as to keep up the shipments of from 50  to 60 cars per day, divided into three  trains. Last night there were 430 men  on the pay roll, and more will probably be added.   ,,  The Granby apartment house and  the Old Ironsides hotel are crowded  to overflowing, and many men are living in other hotels or keeoing batche-  lor'shall.  Another Glory Hole.  Work has been started on what will  eventually be another glory hole at the  Knob Hill mine, where an immense  amount ol ore can be extracted, A  short distance in the main tunnel, a  drift has been run to the west, and  work has been started on the surface  just back of the Knob Hill compressor  house, and the two workings will be  connected. This work is all in shipping ore, and when the preliminaries of  getting ready are completed, it will  simplify tie-loading of the ore directly  into theC. P. R. ore trains in a most  economical manner.  In the main glory hole, or Pit No.  1, a'large amount of ore is, of course,  being taken out every day. There are  now eight raises into these workings,  which are used as chutes for letting  the ore into the mine cars in the tunnel  below; and in addition to these, two  more raises will be made short')* to  further facilitate the work in this part  of the property.  Boundary Mining Notes.  . Harry Cramer returned Wednesday  from a ten days' trip to Portland, Ore.  P. J. Dermody this week visited his  West Fork claim, where it is said he  has a good ore showing.  Ore from the Jewel mine, Long Lake  camp, is now being hauled to Burns  siding, instead of to Eholt, as heretofore. R. Meyerhoff has the contract  for hauling 2,000 tons, and gets down  about 30 tons daily,  As soon as the new crusher is installed at the Mother Lode mine, the shipments will be doubled, and shortly  thereafter the second furnace at the  Greenwood smelter.which is now ready,  will be blown in.  It is now estimated that the Sunset  smelter, at Boundary Falls, will begin  active smelting operations in about live  weeks. By that time the new sampling  and crushing machinery should be in  place, and the alterations required by  the insurance companies should be  done, A considerable tonnage is now  awaiting the Sunset smelter.

Hill,  or. his friends, have recently acquired a  minority interest in the Granby mines  and smelter. It is further given out,  but not officially, that the price at  'which the interests was bought was on  a basis of $22,000,000 for the entire  holdings. It is needless to point out  that the manager of the company has  not verified these rumors yet.  Undoubtedly, if Mr. Hill * is getting  control of the Granby Co. in this province, he will control the railway tonnage of the Boundary to a large extent,  for it all centers around the Granby  Co. and its operations. Many do not  believe that the sale has been made as  reported, but that it is merely the result  of some imaginative reporter's brain  work.  In a short time Mr. Hill will have  his railway into Republic completed,  and will be bidding for the ores of that  camp. ^It is acknowledged that the  Granby Co have made a success of  their smelting and mining operations,  and if Mr. Hill secures control of that  corporation he will control the bulk of  the freight business in th*. Boundary.  That much is self evident. Mr. Hill  is a long headed man, and he is after a  steady business in freight hauling. He  would get this apparently for all time  to come in this section if he obtained  control of the Granby Co. Further  particulars of the deal, if it proves to  be such, are awaited with interest by  the residents of the Boundary and elsewhere.  Members, of the Canadian contingents in South Africa aie continually  covering themselves with gloiy. The)  are iriade^of stern stuff. It is little wonder that the Impeiial government is  glad to have a couple ol thousand  more of these husky boys.  It is said that one of the subjects of  discussion when the colonial piemieis  meet at the coronation at London, will  be that of Oriental immigration. Will  the subject be shelved for anothei  decade or so, 01 will the premier ol  Australia tell them what can be accomplished, from his own experience ?  COINQ TO THUNDER,  The editor of the Pioneer 'ast week,  at Grand Forks,' asked the editor of  the Spokesman-Review why that paper  was booming Thunder Mountain so  strongly at the present time. The reply was worthy of the editor of that  usually excellent daily.    He said:  "Well, the Spokesman-Review has  always believed in helping the new  mining districts as" they came into  prominence, and has done so to the  extent of its ability. When the Slocan  hrst came into prominence in 1892 or  or 1S93, we gave it plenty of space.  The same thing was done with Rossland, Republic and the Boundary, as  well as other meritorious mining districts. We believe in the building up  of the entire country, although some of  the older districts get jealous wlien a  new one comes to the front."  Tber-e seerss to be no reason to  doubt that there are good mining  claims in Thunder Mountain, but some  of the matter |>ubli��hed in the Spokesman-Review is pretty strong even, in a  miningjSection of the country. It i��  now asserted that, owing to the booming that district has received, thousands of ix>or deluded fellows are now outlook may appear a little blue.for  on the way thither���the wast majority j some, of he metals just now, but I be-  of whom will, at best, find failure star jltevethat the future holds much better  ing them in the face before tbe sw��-; prospects,"  j Thefoimal opening of the Republic  and Grand Forks railway last week  was a pronounced success, even if the  party of 200 invited guests had to be  diiven five miles from the railhead to  witness the ceiemony of putting down  the last spike, which was made of gold.  Republic is blessed in that it will soon  have two independent laiiway lines.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Great Industry���There is one in  dustry in which Great Britain holds  her own.

Copper Will Oc Higher.  "Ibelieve that the coming twelve  -months will see a great impiovcment  in the market price and .demand for  all the metals," said Simon Guggenheim at Denver last week Mi. Guggenheim is chaiiman of the executive  committee of the directors of tne  American Smelling and Refining Co.  "Copper, I believe," said he, "will  rise in price somewhat, because of an  agreement between the various interests  which will piobably be made within  the next few months. I do not believe  copper will go back wheie it was before;  that is not leasonable to expect, but it  may go to 13 or 14 cents, which is perhaps a normal and natuial price.   The  Last Saiuida\'-> foi ma!   opening of  the Hot Air Railuay, lecently coniplet  ed between Giand Koiksand Republic,  was a pleasing  success.     I'he  line  is  officially known as   the   Gr.nd   Forks  and Republic laiiway 01 Kettle Valley  lines,   but   is  called   the   "Hot   Ait"  line because so many peisoi.s on eithei  side of the line at fiist thought all  the  talk about building it were ineiely "hot  aii."    Its pionioteis, however, have at  tended steadily to their   business, and  have finished the load undei the  most  adveise circumstance*.  Satuidaj u hen the sped il tiain ol  lb in roaches pulled out fiom Giand  Folks, they weie filled with guests lioni  Spokane, Rowland, Nelson, V'amouv  er, Vic'oiia, Gieenwood, Phoenix and  other Boundaiy points. Representatives ofthe following papers were aboard,  viz., Spokane Spokesman-Review, -ipo-  kane Chionicle, Vancouvei 1'ioviiice,  Rossland Minei, Nelson Minei, Giand  Folks Gazette, Giand Folks News,  and Phoenix Pioneei.  It was about four o'clock   when  the  gues.s ailived at Republic, theie   hav  ing been some delay in getting stalled.  Owing   to   lainy    weather,   (or   tluee  days no steel was put down, and   the  i.uls weie not laid quite into Rcpubli ,  but the company piovided conveyances  101 the lest of the journey,  about   five  miles.    The citizens of - Republic   co-  opeiated with the boaid of   trade   ol  that place and piovided   an  excellent  <dilation for the visitois, and then the  paity  pioceeded   to the  point wheie  the golden spike ceremony took place.  I'he spike was driven by General Manager Holland and his assistant, W. C.  Moiris.    Then the guests  repaiied to  the    train   again,   and   reached   the  Smelter City about 10:30 in the evening.  Here a sumptuous banquet was prepared bv the Giand Forks Hoard of  Trade, wheie ihere was a most enjoyable feast of reason and flow of soul  for seveial houis, several prominent  speakeis taking part, and felicitating  the management of the new railway  on the completion of the newest international link. Among other things,  it was pointed ou' that this was the  first time on record where a railway  had been built by Canadians into the  United States for the purpose of having American ores treated at Canadian  smelters. ���  It was noticable that the new rail  way is substantially .built throughout,  the tiestles-and biidges are of the besi  ki.own to engineering, and the rolling  ���uJ'k is all that can be desired. One  spea'^.*: at the bai.quet declared that  he belic\ed Republic would yet be one  ofthe gieatest mining camps in the  United States, and would be brought  to that point largely by reason of its  1 ail ways.  Mr. Holland and his associates are  to be congratulated on the  successlu  termination of their effoits.

Old papers for sale at  the  Pioneer  office at 25 cents per hundred.  Ranch eggs and oysters can always he  had at the Dominion House cafe.  'I'he following paper was written by  Fredric Keffer, M. E., manager of the  H.'C Copper Co., Ltd., which is operating the great Mother Lode mine in  Dead wood.'camp. The paper was read  before the annual meeting of the Canadian Mining Institute, held at Ottawa  in March.  It is usually the case in new districts  presenting a variety of new conditions,  that a great deal of preliminary work  must be done to determine the best  methods of mining and tieating ores.  This has been true in the Bouudary  District, the ores of which, as ,a rule,  are very low grade, occurring in deposits of great extent without well defined  walls.  It. is the purpose of- this paper to  describe the methods of mining at the  Mother Load mine in Dead wood  camp, near Greenwood, and the .reasons which have led up up to their  adoption.  The ore deposit here outcrops at  intervals for a distance of about 2,000  ft., the width in explored portion averaging perhaps 140 ft., although the absence of any defined walls prevents  exact measures being given. 'I'he dip  is about 70 degrees easterly, and pilch  toward the south at an angle yet undetermined. Only the ground to the  north of the shaft, which is located  centrally, has been explored as yet. At  the beginning ofthe stopingoperations,  the ore body has been developed by  a  FOR  in a year is a. fair profit.

For further information and prospectus, annly to the    .  ^ELSQ^;ast  northerly drift from shaft on the 200  level, 'he drift evtending to apparent  end of ore. The deposit was crosscut  at intervals of about 100 ft. Similar  work was also done on 300 level. A  winze to surface, about 500 ft. north  of shaft, affords good ventilation.  .It'was..the original intention to sort  all the ore from, tbe mine, filling the  stopes with the waste, arid with other  rock blasted from walls or elsewhere  obtained. To this end a system of belt  conveyors was arranged whereby the  ore from shaft wsa dumped into a No.  5 Gates crusher, thence passing over a  3 ft. wide picking belt to the ore bins,  The waste was dropped into side pockets falling upon another belt system,  whereby it was conveyed to a bin at top  of winze, whence it was to be dropped  into the stopes.  Definition of "Waste."  It may be said here that the term  "waste" is, generally speaking, merely  comparative, for the whole of the ore  body (with exception noted below) contains copper, gold and silver in varying degree, and waste is' merely rock,  with lesser quantities of these metals.  The sorting and conveying belts worked to a nicety, but the smelter had  been in operation but a short ,tjme  when it'became apparent that its capacity for these self-fluxing ores was  much greater than had been thought  possible, and consequently smelting  costs were lower than had been figured. A direct result of this was the  definition ol "waste" was alteied, and  its quantity greatly diminished. And  further, that the cost of sorting out  this diminished waste was approximately equal to the cost of smelting it;  for even the poorest ot the rock con-:  tains some values to offset in part the  smelting charges. These conditions  necessitated the abandonment of tie  filling plan for stones. Also the son  ing of ores was suspended, save fur  certain ores from 300 level, where 'the  waste happens to be totally barren,  and easily sorted out.  The filling system having been drop  ped, it was then planned tn timber the  s'opes in the ordinary fashion, but this  plan was abandoned on account of  high cost of timber compared with ore  contents.  A third alternative was next ad-.:|it  ed in one stppe���that of timbering the  whole of the floor of the stope heavily,  only the excess of ore from above being dropped through shutes conveniently placed. This plan was going  nicely until the roof of stope was some  20 ft. over the timbers, when a mass  of ore became detached from roof,  which mass weighed some hundreds of  tons. Everything in its path was  crushed and the stope wrecked. Luckily no one wjis h,u,rt,  Plual Plan Adopted.  A further and final plan was then  adopted. The ore body was divided  into stopes 30 to 40ft. wide, the length,  ol stopes being the. distance across the  ore body. The crosscuts already existing were used, and others cut where  needed under ihe centre each stope.  From these crosscuts, upraises were  made 30 ft. apart. These were made  10 to 12 ft. high, and were then connected by second and' parallel cross  cuts. From these latter crosscuts the  slopes were opened out the proposed  width, and then carried vertically upward, the short upraises being cribbed  and furnished with gates for loading  Between the stopes pillars 20 to' 25 ft.  in thickness were left, these being fre  quently pierced to allow intercommuir  ication and ventilation.  In the stope where the wreck ocrur-  ed a heavily' timbered passage cones  ponding to a crosscut was built, shutes  being placed at 30 ft. intervals.  The empty space was filled with  porphyry blasted from a bl.nkel dyke,  which extends through all the ground  yet explored.  These stopeswill he carried up to a  point 160 ft. above the 200' level,  where they will meet with the surface  workings to be described. After this  occurs, the ore remaining in stopes  above the porphyry will be sent through  the shutes, and as much of the pillars  removed at same time as safety may  dictate.  The ore below porphyry may be removed at will, as this dyke.is very  thick and solid and will stand any  pressure. In this method of working,  nearly 50 per cent, of broken ore must  be left in the stopes for a considerable  period, but to offset this, the interest  on capital so tied up is but a fraction  of the cost of timbering these great  stopes. Moreover, the system is as  safe as mining can be made, the roof  of stopes always being , near the men,  and there can be no wrecks occasioned  by a cave. Further, there being no  danger from timbers giving way, tremendous blasts can be employed, and  the ore broken down in great quantities at a time. One drill will frequently break down 75 to 80 tons in 24  hours.  On the 360 level, the pillars come  directly below those on the 200, but  in future levels the distance will be increased from 100 ft. to nearly 175 to  allow of less rock being left between  levels, and less work having to be done  Quarrying of Ore.  To supplement the output from underground, a great amount of ore is  now obtained by quarrying. In the  hill which rises some ,260 ft. over surrounding flat, a quarry.(or "Glory  Hole" as it is locally styled) is in operation, this quarry being no ft. above  flat and 50 feet above collar of shaft.  Ore is at present run down a gravity  tram to Gates crusher, and thence over  conveying belts to. bins on the flat.  This No. 5 crusher, experience has  shown to be far too small to admit of  economical work, the ore having to be  reduced to 10 in. size in order to pass  into crusher. This reduction has  mainly to be effected by "bulldozing"  with high per cent, dynamite, the rock  being two hard for hammer breaking.  To obviate this difficulty, and to permit of cheaper handling) a tunnel has  been driven into the hill fiom level of  flat. This connects by a 12 by 12  upraise with the quarry. In a pit on  fiat next the railway an immense Parrel! crusher, with jaw opening 2x3 ft.,  is now being installed.  Ore will be dropped down the up  raise, and there loaded into cars hav  ing a capacity of 4 tons.
