Paper Read Before Institution  ^ of Mining and Metallurgy.  The following quottion is from a  paper on "A visit to mineral districts of  Canada" read before the Instituiion of  Mining and Metallurgy, by William  Frech^ville, past president, and Hugh  F. Marriott, member, of council, who  were among the mining experts that  made a tour through Canada last  September.  Their reference to" observations  made on Boundary mining follows:  'From Rossland we proceeded to  Greenwood, and visited the mine and  smelter belonging to the B. C. Copper  company. The mine is on what is  known as the Mother Lode, and ,is  exploiting a large; body of ore! about  190 feet wide, having a known length  of about 1,200 feet. The hanging  wall is ot greenstone and the foot wall  limestone.  "The ore appears to be altered  greenstone, in which spots of iron'  pyrites here and there occur. The  value is said to run from -1.5 to"1.75  per cent of copper and about $1.50 in  gold and silver.  "That it should be possible to work  commercially such an ore ind cates the  very favorable conditions that exist.  The'workings are partly opencast and  partly underground, and no timbering  is used, the ore being worked out'in  chambers; leaving intervening pillars.  The ore is self-fluxing.  "An output of 1,600 tons a day is  being made from the Mother Lode,  and about 400 tons a day are obtained  from other mines, so that the tonnage  smelted amounts to about 2,000 tons  a day. The smelter is situated about  four miles from the mines. There are  three furnaces 20 feet long by four  feet wide, putting through a little over  600 (tons a dky^eaclu ���Abouu-i?J^  per cent of coke is^ used, costing $6.50  per ton. The matte runs from 45 to  i 50 per cent nf copper, and is besse-  merized and the black copper shipped  "The next mine visited in the district was the Gr.inby, which conducts  one of the largest low grade mining  and smelting operations in the world.  The plant is now being increased to  treat 5000 tons a day. The ore dips  at about 40 degrees and several drives  are made on each level, from which  the stopes are carried up at an artificial  angle to enable the material to be run  into the tiucks by gravity.  "The operations ' here consist of  blasting down the ore which gravitates  into the trucks and is drawn out of the  mines by electric traction. It is then  run on a down grade to the smelter,  and passing through jaw cruchers, four  of which handle the entire output, it  is mixed with coke and dumped into  the furnaces.  The ore, which contains r.5 to 1.75  per cent copper and $1.50 in gold and  silver, and is entirely self-fluxing, and  it is due to this natural advantage that  this extremely low grade is profitably  worked.  The smelter is at present treating  3,500 tons a day. There are eight  furnaces, 14 per cent coke being added  to the charge. The resultant matte is  40 to 45 per cent; the slag which contains 0.3 per cent coppe*, ca ries 45  per cent silica. The Bessemer prccess  completes the operation necessary to  turn out marketable copper.  An interesting detail with regard to  the copper here ��as the system of  charging; the trucks containing the  various materials being run right into  the furnaces, there being auxiliary  wheels on the'upper part of the sides  of the trucks, which engage with rails  on the furnace waits. They say they  mine the ore in the-morning and send  the copper away as 99 per cent black  copper in the evening, and although  this may not be strictly accurate, it  substantially illustrates the unusual  simplicity and celerity of the operations."  ELSA   SCHAFENBERG, SOP..ANO, WITH KAKL RIEDKLSBERGER  Tbe Canadian Mining Institute.  (Mining Science)  When it comes to making institute  meetings interesting and instructive,  ihe Canadian Mining Institute has a  a very happy faculty of accomplishing it.  In the meeting of the Western  Branch at Greenwood, B. C, the  papers presented were directly related  to the special district and were made  more instructive and valuable by the  material illustration afforded.  The institute is to be congratulated  on its wide-awake committees.  Latest Prices in Metal*  Nbw York���Copper, electrolytic, $13-  25 @ $13 50; laite. *13 75 @ M4.00.

Cblef of Police dels Orders.  The police and license commissioners have given the chief of police  a list of orders that would be well for  any probable offenders in the city to  lake due notice. For the benefit of  such we present them herewith:  1. Strictly enforce curfew bylaw.  2. Obstructing sidewalks and loafing on street corners must not be  tolerated.  3. Any person using profane or  boisterous language on the streets or  in any public place  must be arrested  4. Make an extra effort to locate  persons carrying concealed weapons  and have them prosecuted.  Important Mining Deal  The most important mining deal  that has been put through in Nelson  for some years was completed Wednesday when the papers were signed  giving the Consolidated Mining and  Smelting company of Trail a two and  a half year bond on the Queen Victoria  mine at Beasley, eight miles west of  that city, the party giving the bond  being J. P. Svvedberg, the well known  mining man. It is the intention of the  Consolidated company to put the mine  in operation with the least possible delay. As all the necessary plant and  machinery are in position it will not,  therefore,   be   long   before shipments  start.   Oreenwood Get* Smith Cup  The cup offered by O. B.

Phoenix and Greenwood  curlers played a series of eight games  on Monday and Wednesday evenings  for the coveted mug���and the silver  ware went to Greenwood, the latter  securing six of the eight games. Greenwood curled all round the locals and  were fully entitled to the trophy.  Phoeilx  Fatnoai  Violinist  to   Reappear   Is  Next Monday ao< Taesslar.  Karl Riedelsberyer, the world renownedPrussian......violinist, acknowledged by competent critics tu be the  best all-round master of the violin in  the United States, now on his transcontinental tour, has been engaged to  give two concerts in the Phoenix opera  house on Monday and Tuesday even-  ings next. To speak concerning Mr.  Riedelberger's ability and skill as an  artist is as difficult as attempting to  paint the lilies, so we waive every attempt to that effect, suffice it to say  that Mr. Riedelsberger was the teacher  of A. D. Strutzel of this city, that he  has played in Thomas'orchestra of  Chicago for five years, that he has been  concert master of the Philarmonic  orchestra of Chicago for nine years,  and that, in short, he has spent 31 years  of his life in perfecting and preparing  himself for the unique and enviable  position that he holds today among the  violinists of the world.  Mr. Riedelsberger is assisted in his  concerts by a soprano and pianist of  fifteen years'.European training.  -~Citreeiis^xif'fliocuiAr3horfdHn.o^rrii8s  this rare treat on Monday arid Tuesday,  which the opera house management  has secured at considerable expense.  Reserved seats are now selling at'  Brown's.���Advt.  Hockeylsta In a Pree-Far-AII.  Phoenix hockey team went to Greenwood on Tuesday evening to play a  scheduled game with the team of that  city. When the game was in progress  about a quarter of an hour, and each  of the teams had scored two goals, two  of the players got into a dispute which  precipitated the entire lineups of both  teams in a free-for-all scrap, and  brought air the spectators on the jump  across the ice.  The fifteen minutes of play resembled a slugging match more than  anything else, and it was evident the  Greenwood players were intent on winning the match at any cost, or at least  maiming their opponents so that Phoenix would lose the game with Grand  Forks two nights later. Greenwood  had no chance for the Boundary  trophy, but its envious spirit against  Phoenix predominated. This is not the  first hockey match between these two  teams that has ended in this way, and  it would appear that both teams are  ready for renewed war.  LAROE merger plan  A  Ten Million Dollar Company after Orient  Mine* and Norlbport Smelter  There arc deals within deals being  negotiated for properties on First  Thought hill, says the Orient Journal.  Efforts by those who are on the inside  of a big consolidation scheme are being  made to create slumps in mining stocks  in order to gobble it up cheap, and  subsidiary mining syndicates are being  formed. It is rumored that all these  manouvers are principally the agencies  of a strong English syndicate who are  to acquire the Northport smelter, the  First Thought mine, and merge other  properties in the Orient camp. To  give color to this rumor word comes  from Washington, D.C, to. the effect  that a company has been formed there  with a capitalization of $10,000,000 to  consolidate all the mines in the Orient  camp under one management, and to  operate its own smelters, mills, etc.  Dealb of Mrs. Woocter.  The news of the death in Grand  Forks on Thursday of Mrs. Wooster,  wife of G. W. Wooster, treasurer of  the Granby company, was a shuck to  her many friends. Mrs. Wooster had  been suffering from tonsolitis, and had  an operation performed on her throat  on Wednesday, but little danger was  anticipated. Complications set in, however, and the best medical skill proved  of no avail, death occurring early on  Thursday morning. The remains were  taken to Spokane yesterday for burial  J. E. Mclntyre of Mother Lode has  returned from a trip to the coast.  REPORT OF AN EXAMINATION OF THE PROPERTIES MADE BY F. A. PROVOST, A PROM-  INENT MINING ENGINEER LAST JUNE   /!  In the report of the financial and  physical condition of the Dominion  Copper company, issued by the reorganisation committee, the report of F.  A.Provot, a prominent mining engineer, who examined the properties  last June, is given as follows:  '���In the Rawhide and Idaho claims  the Dominion Chopper Co. has at the  present time an ore reserve that.can  fairly be estimated at between 2 and 3  millio" tons. This ore will in all  probability average about as follows:  Gold      $1.00  Silver 18  Copper            22 lbs.  and should give a net recovery of about  17 lbs. of copper and .$1.15 gold and  silver to the ton.  During the operations for the year  ending July 31st, 1907, the recovery  from the ores treated was:  Gold .....!. $1.04  Silver...........      .15 approve  Copper .....'..   . 15.5 lbs.  per ton and the copper recovery was a  little lower tharf rr.y estimate of what  can be done because of the unnecessary  prop rtion of flux (Sunset ore), which  was used in the attempt to keep up a  larger production than the mines could  supply.  During the same period, on a production ot 188,000 tons, the smelting  costs averaged $1.78, and the mining  costs $1.98 per ton. The lowest cost  at which copper was produced was  .1396 cents in August, 1906. Owing  to the very obscure methods of segregating capital disbursements and oper  nting charges, it is almost impossible  to state what was the average cost of  copper for that period. However,  operating under the most favorable  economical conditions, and treating a  tonnage of not less than 300,000 tons  per annum, the following costs may be  approximated: ' ..   '  Cost mining per ton ore  $1.25  ".' smelting per ton ore .....     1 38  "j   converting,   refining    and  ^ 1 TriarTceting, as'^^ ���  -   with B.C. Copper Co. at 3c.  per lb. 17 lbs..... 51  Total cost ;...  Deduct value gold and silver.  $3-14  r 00  Cost 17  lbs. copper netted by  each ton of ore $2.14  Copper per lb 12  On a 15c. copper market the profit  per ton would be about 40c, and the  yearly operations would yield a profit  of $120,000.  The property, however, is in no  shape to mine and treat 1000 tons of  ore daily, without which tonnage no  reasonable costs can be attained.  The Rawhide and Idaho mines from  which practically all the ore must  come, are new mines and not yet  opened up sufficiently with extraction  drifts and raises to ensure low mining  costs. To get a low mining cost here  it is necessary to extract a large tonnage from one or two openings so that  hoisting, pumping, tool sharpening,  superintendence, etc., will be a  minimum.  As the property stands now it has no  reserves nor known ore bodies of any  consequence, outside of the Rawhide  and   Idaho, and  these  bodies, though  large are now limited to 3 million tons  or so, as they both pass into adjoining  territory. On their showing alone the  company would not be warranted jn  expending the large sums "necessary to  properly remodel their smelter, or to  build a new one.  In deposits of such low grade, steady  operation on a large scale is imperative  and; the keynote of success. To ensure this a very large quantity of ore  must be available, and available in  large bodies, not in scattered deposits  of small size, otherwise the cost of development, dead work and plant, at  each mine is too large a charge against  the smaller tonnage.  The policy of this company, therefore, should be to open up its reserves  on the Idaho and Rawhide, and prospect all of its territory for additional  ore bodies, mining each in turn on as  large a scale as possible.  An expenditure of $5o,6oc���$60,090.  should   suffice   to   properly   develop  these reserves, and to do some diamond  drill work and prospecting on the  rest  of their holdings. ~  Tne territory between.the Brooklyn,  and the Stem winder, the Montezuma  claim and the Crown Silver is all good  prospecting ground. The Mother  Lode workings of the B. C. Copper  company are within a few feet ot the  Crwn Silver mine, and it is quite  probable that the mineralization extends into the latter claim.  The present smelter is nominally  capable of treating 1,000 tons daily,  but is ill designed and uneconomical.  With'the mines in their present condition it would not be advisable to try  to treat much more than 600 tons  daily until such time as more stopes  and rakes are opened up.  The developments at the mines during the past year have been, considerable, and they have been well equipped  with a new compressor plant, hoists,  etc., so that the further necessary expense will be confined to the under--  ground development and   prospecting  referred to above.  '" ": '"'-  In short, with the present condition  bf the mines and smelter there is no  profit in sight under 15c. copper, and  the reserves do not warrant large  capital disbursements to enlarge the  plant to a 2,000 ton basis on which  lower costs could be obtained.  The best policy at present would  seem to be one ot development and  prospecting with the view of developing more ore to enable a profitable  sale of the property or its development  to a point that would warrant operations on a much larger scale."  Justice Clement in the Supreme  Court at Vancouver has refused on  technical grounds to give judgement  in suit for $'5,000,000 instituted by  National Trust Co. of Toronto acting  for New York bondholders, against  Dominion Copper company.  Prospects for a mine on the Wood-  burn property continue to improve and  the promoters are most optimistic. At  a meeting of the directors held on FeD.  23 rd it was decided to increase the  price of stock from ten to fifteen  cents per share, to take effect on  March  10th.  ur^5HSa5a5HSSSa5HSSSE5a52SSS25rir^  ��       BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

His   mother,   telling  of the case to a Press  representative,  said:���  "Henry works with his shirt slee\es  rolled up above his elbows, and passing  from a warm to the biting cold, as he  was obliged to do, he got the worst  case of chapped hands and arms I have  ever seen. From his fin^e s to his  elbows was one mass of raw flesh, with  bad cracks here and ihere. Whenever  he washed, it brought tears to his eyes,  ihe pain was so acute He tri< d several  kinds of salves, but nothing relieved  hint really until he,tried Zam-Buk.  This balm seemed to take away the  burning and smarting-almost at once.  The cracks began to heal, and a few  applications of the bal.n cured him.  His hands and arms are now smooth  and soft.  "We have also used Zam-Buk for  other emergencies. I sustained a burn  on one of my fingers. " Zam-Buk took  the fire out and healed up the sore. It  really seams a wonderful househo'd  preparation.  ' "On one occasion my son Harry  had his, foot frozen. It was very swollen'and discolored, but Zam-Buk both  relieved the swelling and removed the  discoloration. Zam Buk is so handy  and so effective that we shall always  keep a supply handy."  ��� Miss Hattie Bertrand, of Salisbury,  (Oht.), says:���'Every winter I suffer  from chapped hands, but I have found  a cure in Zam Buk. Applied at night,  it heaU the cracks by-��normng, and  tak.es away all the soreness."  , Similar effects' follow its use for  eczema, scalp sores, blood-poisoning,  ulcers, ringworm, children's sores, cuts,  burns and bruises. It also cures piles.  All druggists and stores sell at 50c. a  box; orpost free from Zam-Buk Co.,  Toronto, for price.  ROBT.

I could have told him  had  I been called upon to testify, that Bi 1  Miner did not esoape from  prison   by  crawling under the  fence through  the  hole, through which it was alleged he  went.    No man ever crawled through  that hole for two good reasons. The first  was that the hole was not large enough;  second,   because  the  hole was made  only for the purpose of covering the  letting out of Miner.    The story of the  loss of fifty, thousand dollars' worth of  bonds or money by the C.P.R. or any  one else in the robbery, and that it had  been cached by Miner, was an invention in the Interests of the robber himself;    No  one  ever lost��hat sum; no  bonds were ever stolen. Miner's friends  on the outside called on him and conducted  fake  negotiations   for his so^  called escape and the securing  of. the  cached money.    Certain persons made  it   possible   for  Miner  to  escape,-apr  parcntly on the understanding that he  would divide up on the booty.    These  facts can easily be proven   if the government makes an investigation."  "Moats Crista.  "Monte Cristo" is an alluring story  when read.    As a'drama in the hands  I of a master of stage  craft  no  more  powerful production was ever attempted  Frederick  Clarke   and  company are  producing this beautiful piece with an  excellent company under the direction  of Willis & Cosgroye of.Caigarj;r~~Trie  scenery is new and. elaborate and the  company  carries  all   the  mechanical  equipment that is necessary to produce  this strong drama of the 18th century,  this story  of love and intrigue based  upon the days of Napnleon, which has  for generations maintained the centre  of interest throughout the world.   Frederick Clarke is an actor of rare ability.  His experience has been wide and he  is supported by a very evenly balanced  company.    The superior of this great  drama of Dumas's has never been seen  in   the   Northwest as   presented   by  Frederiek Clarke and company.    His  work as the gallant young lover dragged  from the side of his bride during their  nuptial   festivities  has  provoked  the  tears of strong men and tender women  in every part of the civilized world.    It  is a strong drama of such stirring qualities as to be ever remembered once  witnessed in the,,hands of competent  artists.

"The first bottle relieved me, and  after using four bottles I was entirely  cured.  "I do recommend Peruna to all who  are afflicted with catarrh. 1 have  found it to be a great remedy also for  coughs and colds of-children;.a dose  at bedtime will relieve them from  coughing all night. I always keep it on  hand, and recommend it."  Catarrh for Seven Years.  Mrs; T. Freeh, R. Rv No. 1, Hickory  Point,Tenn!,, writes: "I am happy to  tell you that I am cured of' catarrh. I  have followed your good and kind advice faithfully.' -I bless the day when I  wrote yon of my condition, and I will  always praise Peruna. I think it is one  of the grandest medicines on earth.  "Having been afflicted with catarrh  and stomach trouble for seven years,  and after having tried four different  doctors they only relieved motor a little  while. I gave up all hope of being cured.  I only weighed one.hundred and thirty  pounds, and was so weak I could hardly  get around the room.  "I was induced to try Peruna, and to  my greatsurprisc I am now entirely well.  My weight is now-one hundred and.  eighty-eight pounds, my health never,  wes better in my. life, I shall always  praise Dr. Hartman.and his remedies,"  The Farmer's "Wife.  Who is in a better position to know than the farmer's wife herself what  is required in the farmer's home!   She must meet its troubles, solve its.prob--  lems, wara oa duaojui,'nurse the sick, she must do all these things herself,  and she learns by valuable exptexionce. what is best and what is not best.  In numberless farm homes Peruna is relied upon as the family medicine.  Peruna books are consulted in health and disease. Peruna is used as a preventive as well as a corrective in disease.  The wives of the farmers of. the "United States constitute a solid phalanx  in favor of Peruna.   Against this testimonythe "slanders of a. few.critlcs will  not prevail.-; One sensible mistress of a farm home who has used Peruna  ; knows more about Peruna than all the magazine critics in the world. -  Peruna In Her Home.  Mrs. Anna Linder, R. I\ D. No. 5, Das-  sel, Meeker Co., Minn., writes: "For two  years I suffered with that terrible disease, chronic catarrh.  "Fortunately I saw your advertisement in my paper and I spoke to my sister alrout your medicine. She wrote to  you and I got your advice free of charge.

I would not  be without that great touic for ten times  its cost, fori; am well.and strong now,  and cannot speak in too high terms of  its value as a medicine."  In a letter dated June 12,1906, Mrs. Linder writes: "I cannot express my thanks  enough to you for all the good your modi-  I This spring 1 took cold and It Mttled in  ) my kidneys.

The Fink process in  Utah, which is being tried out by Samuel Newhouse of Salt Lake City, has  claimed a good deal of attention, and  the Tredinnick & Wetzstein process of  desilverizing lead ore is coming to the  front under tests being made at the  Omaha smelting plant of the American  Smelting & Refining company, and  now there is some talk of a new concentrating process that is being tried  out in the Butte camp by the East  Butte Copper Mining company.  It is claimed that a test run was  recently made with the new method  concentrator, with results that demonstrate the feasibility of a principle that  may revolutionize concentration. Much  secrecy is observed where all of the  new methods arc being tried. The  East Butte system is said to be auto  matic, very economical and simple and  capable of concentrating the lowest  gtades of copper ore. If the process  is successful the East Butte company  will hav<�� in it an asset of. more value  than the company's mines.

Will be Heavy This season���Mountain Resorts  Popular  ''''" Plans are now under consideration  byi the C.P.R. ,for the enlargement of  the Empress Hotel, Victoria. This  hotel is without exception the first on  the continent both in situation, appointments and service.  Owing to the opening of the Alaska  Yukon;lair, which takes place on June  1, and which will attract thousands of  eastern visitors from Canada and the  United States, it has been decided to  open the hotel at Banff on May 15, or  two weeks earlier than usual. Advices  are that tourists who visited the  Rockies and Selkirks last summer are  planning return trips this yeai,and in  many instances many of them have already applied for accommodation, extending over several weeks. Hundreds of Americans are also writing for  information about mountain climbing  and the Selkirk glacier and the Deutsch- j  mann caves.  If you know of an item or piece of  news tell us about it. That's what we  want. But a newspaper man sometimes experiences more difficulty in  gathering%ews than one would imagine.  This was the cas,e..when a reporter.in  a neighboring town, who, a few days  ago was sent to write a fire in a residence. Going to the door he inquired  for the lady of the house. The maid  said she was out. "Are any of the  family at home?" inquired the scribe.  "No, they are all out," was the reply.  "Well, wasn't there a fire here last  evening?" "Yes." said the hired girl,  "but that's out too."

BAT SAUSAQES  AND NEW BREAD  Or Any Other Favorite  Food Without fear of  an Upset Stomach  You can eat anything your stomach  craves without fear of a case of Indigestion or Dyspepsia, or that your food  will sour or ferment on your stomach  if you will occasionally take a little  Diapepsin after eating.  Your meals will taste good, and  anything you eat will be digested;  'nothing can ferment or turn into acid  lor poison or stomach gas, which causes  Belching, Dizziness, a feeling of fullness, after eating, Nausea. Indigestion  (like a lump of lead in stomach), Biliousness, Heartburn, water brash, pain  in stomach and intestines or other  symptoms.  Headaches from the stomach are  absolutely unknown where this effective remedy is used. Diapepsin really  does all the work of a healthy stomach.  It digests your meals when your stomach can't. Each triangule will digest  all the food you can eat and leave  nothing to ferment or sour.  Get a large 50-cent case of Pape's  Diapepsin from your druggist and  start taking today and by tomorrow  you will actually brag about your  healthv, strong Stomach, for then you  can eat anything and everything you  want without the slightest discomfort  or misery, and every particle of impurity and Gas that is in your stomach  and intestines is going to be carried  away; without the use of laxatives or  any other assistance.

It is to be regretted that the hockey  match Tuesday evening ended in unpleasantness. When a sporting event  ends up in a fight it may safely be  assumed that some of the parties were  dishonest. The man who is tricky in  a sporting event will be tricky in bust  ness. If Phoenix and Greenwood  hockeyists can't play straight they  should quit.
