I have examined, whil.s  at work, the only plant yet built, thai  erected in Wales, for the purpose o-  treating fhe yellow copper ore from  the Glasdir rrriiiev"' -  It saves about 85 per cent,   of thr  values as against 15 per cent, by ordinary waler concentration as previous!  carried out with   the   best  machinery  that could he got.    The pre  contain  only about 1.2 per cent, of copper.    ]  have also made   numerous  laboratory  tests with the oil   process.     For   ore  which contain finely disseminated me  tallic minerals I think oil is greatly su  perior to water as a concentrating med  ium, for it comes at once into comae  with, licks up, and saves a   large  proportion of the floating particles  whicl  pulverization produces in such mineral;  and which are unavoidably  lost .wher  water is used.    To save by water,   tin  mineral treated must sink, but a   ven  large proportion of some minerals, sue!  as chalcopyrite and  tetrahydrite,   will  not sink, as it is well known to all en'gi  neers who have given any attention tr  metallurgy. j  I recently made a number of 'concentrating tests, with water, of a yellow  copper ore containing about   1.2   pe  cent, of copper.    The average loss wa  55.S percent., mainly arising from floai  ing ore, the surface of the water  behu  covered with a scum of metallic   mineral which would not  sink.     Messrs  Elmore have made tests   of the  sarin  ore, and lost only 2 per cent; The les-  the percentage o( metallic   mineral  ii  an ore, and the m:ne finely  it is disseminated, the greater is the loss in wale  concentration. The use of oil prevenl.'  that loss almost entirely.  I feel very sure that the process ha;  a great future, for besides enabling  many ores to be profitably treated,  I which could not possibly be so treatec  in waler, it will always be useful as i.  tailings plant in mills handling ore in  which a large proportion of tbe metal! h  minerals is so scattered through the  gangue that it can be saved by hand-  sorting and jigs.  In British Columbia and other part.'  of Canada I know of a large number o'  deposits which cannot possible be worked profitably il water concentration  were employed, but which, with the El  more process, would become very valuable properties. Mines that have been  worked at a profit when smelting their  produce could greatly increase that profit by employing the Elmore process  prior to smelting. Much ore that has  hitherto been amalgamated and cyanid-  ed will, I am satisfied, be more economically dealt with in the future by the  oil concentration.  I am, yours faithfully,  (Signed), J. D. Kendall.  outofthe  Winnipeg  mine,  the  two income instead of steady outgo,  men employed  were  discharged,   and Last Contract Let..  the property clr/sed indefinitely.  Since      This week .'Tuesday Mr...Anderson  visited Phoenix in connection with the  the f re a short time ago, tfiat destroy  ed the engine and 'compressor.'.house,  the pumps were kept running' to  keep  the water out of the   mine  tiil   some-,  thiiig definite was decided lipon.'in regard to the  future  operations of the  pioperty.    Estimates on the cost of a  new shaft  house   were obtained   from  local contractors, and it was hoped that  work on "it "would   be   started   before  this.   But Richard Plewman, the managing director, has not   got   his   plans  outlined yet, and in the meantime the  property will remain idle.    It   is  said  [hat he wii! probably take a  trip  east  in the near future in   the  interests .-of  the company.  Granby Secretary's Close Call.  Secretaiy White was up on the Knob  Hill when some blasting was going on  in the glory hole, so  lie   hied liimsell  to the rear of the little blacksmith shop  there, as   he  thought   in  a  place  of  safety.    Nevertheless, a piece of flying  ore  came   down   and   tore the  front  brim of his Panama   hat, narrowly escaping   the Wearer.      It   might   have  killed   the   Granby Co.'s secretary, 01  disfigured him for   life, to say nothing  of giving him an opportunity of testing  the usefulness of the iwv Phoenix Gen  era I Hospital.    As Mr. White was the  thirteenth member of the party in coming  across   the  continent,  he   thinks  that may have  had   something  to dc.  with it. ,  last ofthe1 contracts for; the system'���-,  that for the building of the transforming' sub-station of the company in  Phoenix. This contract has just been  let to John Copp, who built the main  power house at Cascade.  Work has already been started on  the site for the sub-station, which will  be located on the Gold Drop mineral  claim, at the present terminus,of the  ! double pole line, some 22 miles from  Cascade and just outside the corporate limits of Phoenix.  ���While there will be no moving machinery 111 the sub station, the structure  will be a substantial one of brick and  stone, about 75,000 brick being required. In size the building will  be 30x50 feet, and will have a trussed  roof. The transformers have been  here for a month or two, coming from  the Westinghouse Electric Co., of  Pittsburgh, Pa. The power when reduced to the proper voltage by the  transformers  will  be delivered to the  three times Sundays in as many different places, viz., Greenwood, Eholt and  Phoenix, in the order named.  In last week's storm the fast, safe,  staunch and commodious steamer, the  Myrtle B., which has plied the placid  waters of Christina lake for the last four  years, was sunk at her pier.  Last'week Friday the engine in the  LeQuime .& Powers sawmill, at Giand  Forks, ran away and flew to pieces.  No one was injured, but the building  and machine were badly damaged.  The new hoist at the Old Ironsides  Nov 2 shaft broke down a few days  ago, rendering it useless for 24 hours  while temporary repairs were being  made at the Granby machine shops.  WILL ELECT ANOTHER ALDERMAN.  To Take the   Place  of Alderman Bradley,  Raslgned.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council Pound By-Law No. 41 was  read the second time, and the clerk  was told to notify owners of animals  to come to his office and peruse the  same.  Replying to a communication from  the secretary cf the Phoenix General  Hospital, the council decided that it  was not now in a position to pay the  balance of the donation of $250, but  would do so as soon as it is able.  The resignation of Alderman Bradley, who has removed from the city,  was accepted, and nominations will be  received at McRae's store from 12 to  2 on Friday, August 1st,  the  election  Snowshoe and Granby mines, and willlt0 take P'ace August 41b at the  same  Boundary Mining Notes.  Steam was gotten up in the new  Snowshoe engine last Wednesday for  the first time. The new compressor  building is now roofed.  A few cars of coke have begun to  arrive at'the Greenwood smeltei, and  it is hoped that reductionwoiks will have  enough on hand before long so that  it can blow in again.  In seven days three shifts drove a  distance of 52 feet in the new No. 2  tunnel of .the Knob Hill mine. It is  expected the tunnel will be connected  with the 100 foot level of the property  early next month, there being only a  little over 100 feet of work to be done  now.  Jefferies-Fitz  also be   used   to   light   the   cities ui  Phoenix and Greenwood.  When Mr. Anderson  was here  this  week with his assistant, 'Mr. Roberts,  and Contractor Copp, the ground foi  ground for the siib-statjon was laiu  out, and on Wednesday the employees  of the latter began work on the foundations. Mr. Copp has practically  completed his   contract   for the larg-  place, the city clerk being the  reluming officer.  The following bills were ordered  paid: N. Lemieux, J>iS. Pioneer  Pub. Co., $10.    R. U. Kerr, $3.  Two petitions were received in regard to the sidewalk which it is proposed to build over the First street biidge,  one for and the other ag.iinst, and no  action was taken.

There w,-i>  much interest loccally   in   the  event.  '1 hursday evening a bad fire occurred at Greenwood, by which the stock  of G. S. Williams, dry goods, was almost totally destroyed, and the building was gutted. Smith &.

The Granby Co. has entered into a  contract to take i,coo horse powei  as a minimum from the Cascade concern as soon as it can be delivered to  mines and smelter.    For   this purpose  a branch pole line will be constructed  At once to reach the smelter. This  lateral will  be three   miles   in  length,  the route has been surveyed and construction starts at once.  The Pioneer man asked Mr. Ander  son when   he expected  to  be  able to  deliver power over   the   new line, and  was answered as follows:  "We should be able to turn on the  juice'within 60 days, and   I  can   see  nothing to prevent.    The   last of  our  machinery   was   shipped   from   Piits-  burgh six weeks  ago, and   most   of it  has arrived and   has been installed at  Cascade.    Some of it was delayed by  washouts on the C. l\ R.    Had it not  been for delays in delivery, we should  have  been   prepared   lo  do  business  long before this "  Once   a year  the officials of the  Granby Co. who live in the eastern  part of Canada  make a  trip  to  the  mines and smelter of the company, and  generally bring a number of friends  and shareholders with  them.     This  year the party travelled  in  a private  car,  and  first  went through' to the  coast, reaching Grand Forks last Sat-  urday.    This week   Wednesday ind  Thursday they visited the company's  properties in this camp,   to note the  progress that has  been  made in  the  last yeai���perhaps the greatest that  has been made in any one year since  the Miner-Graves people took hold- of  ihe Granby mines.  In   the  party   are the   following:  S:  H.  C.  Miner, president   of   the  Granby  Co.,  with  Mrs.  Miner and  Miss Miner, of Montreal; J. P. Graves,  general manager,  of Spokane;   A. ,C.  Flumerfelt, assistant general manager,  of Grand Forks.   A. L. White,   secretary of the company, of Montreal ai'id  New York; Gardner Stevens, a director in the Eastern   Townships Bank,  of Waterloo, Quebec, with Mrs. Stevens; W. H. Robinson, of Granby Que.,  with Mrs.   Robinson and son Wynn;  Gordon   McKinnon,  son  of Jas. H.  McKinnon,   manager of the Eastern  Townships  Bank,  Sherbrooke,   Que.;  C. H.   Arnold,  of Boston,   Mass.,' a  shareholder and a  prominent rubber -  manufacturer; W. A. Matley, secretary,  of the Ames-Holden Co. and auditor  ofthe Granby Co.  In  company  with  Jay   P. Graves  and Wm. Yolen  Williams,  the members of the party went through the extensive underground   workings ofthe  Knob Hill and   Old   Ironsides mines,  from which nearly half a million tons  of ore  have  already  been  extracted!  and shipped, and yet were able to see  ore till their  eyes  were  tired.    They  tramped   up to 'and  over  the   glory,  holes,  went  through  the shafthouses.  and engine  rooms,  inspected the site  for the new   mammoth  electric compressor plant and generally took in the  works.    Most of  the  party a d been  here beforehand  the  changes and*e,x-  tensions. since   the   last   visit   were  many; but several of those who came  saw Phoenix and its well known mines  for the first tim..    To these it was indeed a revelation and one they thought  well worthy of investigation. r"  Mr. Miner and his family are spend-   .  ing a month in the Boundary with the.  local officials of the company, and will  be here next week to stay several days,  the whole party  returning  to Grand  Forks last night on a special train.  School Trustee Election.  Clerk Matheson, of the school hoard  has given notice that an election to fill  the vacancy caused by ihe resignation  of Josiah Stirritt on the local board,  will be held at the same time and '"  place as that for alderman Tor the east  ward.

EDITORIAL COMMENT  The full court is establishing a reputation of carrying out all that it undertakes. British Columbia editors will  take due notice.  ' Government owned coal mines would  apparently" heal some of the ills we  already "know of,'and perhaps some  that we know not of..  What's the matter with the government throwing open the coal reserves  of East'Kootenai? Could there be a  more propitious time?  Recently the Vancouver Province  went out of its way to give a slap at  Anthony J. McMillan, who with othei  gentlemen was recently appointed on  a special committee of the shareholders  in London to investigate and report on  the status of the heretofore much mismanaged LeRoi mine at Rossland.  Of course, the coast daily was shooting at somewhat long jauge, but the  sum and substance of the point sought  to be made was that Mi. McMillan is  not a mining engineer, and therefoie  is not qualified for the important post  conferred on him.

It is the Montreal Herald which  rises to facetiously remark that those  Indians who discovered Noah's ark  up iu Alaska must be arkaeologists.  It is a matter of well known history  ���painful history to many old country  investors���that from various causes  the LeRoi mine, which held the proud  position of being the banner mine, ol  the Kootenays for ^ears, has been  shamefully managed for the last three  or four years, or almost since it was acquired fiom the American owners  who had previously reaped immense  profits from it. Mining engineers  came and went, and with fat fees in  their pockets made many reports on  the mine in question���most of them  decidedly favorable repoits. Ye: tht  profits from the mine, even under tin  management of some ol these same engineers, could hardly be found with a  magnifying glass.    The exact cause 0:  B. C. MINING NOTES  Two weeks from^oday King Edward  is to be crowned, according to present  arrangements.    It will not be an event  of such pomp as was planned for June I this condition we  do  not  pretend to  explain, but the fact was patent to all.  This was the result���nothing but disappointment and the steady falling ol  LeRoi shares.  26th.  , The projector of the new paper for  Golden is not so much of a fool as was  thought It is now reported that the  paper will he a weekly instead of a  daily.  A most interesting issue is the last  copy of the I^os Angeles Mining Review. - It is called a "Copper Number,"  and is given over to 'a description of  the largest copper mines and -smelters  in Michigan, Montana and Arizona.  In these days of push aud progress,  the man who does not utilize the local  press to'push his wares, finds himself  in the'Tear of the business procession.  This is becoming more and more so  each year, and there is food for thought  in the fact'  'There are times when it does not  p.iy to talk too plainly. . For instance,  Wm. McAdams, of the Sandon Pay-  streak said sonfe things about the  judiciary of this province, add now he  has begun to languish in durance vile  for nine long months, as the immediate  result "'-IV-'   .''"��� ...  It is little wonder that the share  holders should decide to try a man on  the new committee, who while not  having the handle M, E. tacked to hi1-  name, yet had an enviable business  reputation and also was not larking in  practical experience in this mining section. The LeRoi men had repeated!)  tried so-called mining experis to get  at the exact conditions, and had evidently failed. When they placed tht  managing director of the Snowshot  mine on 'the committee, we believe  they knew e>iactly what they weie do  ing and did ii with their eyes open.  '��� ;Nopjper in'th6..KjGtotenays makes,  more frequent changes in its management than the Rossland Miner.   Next  P week J. P. Earngey, late of the Toronto Mews and Rat Portage Miner, will  take charge of the Rossland morning  daily. It is to be hoped that Mr.  Earngey's hands will not be tied in the  conduct of the paper, as were those of  most of his predecessors.  'J'he .Victoria Colonist gravely as-  ��ert* that Nelson is agitating for the  fcrebation of a tourist association. The  impression has gained wide currency  everywhere but in Victoria, that Nelson already Viae a litre organization of  this kind. The Victoria association is  doing excellent work, its dainty book-  We de noi claim absolutely that Mr.  McMillan will do what his predecessor have utteily failed to accomplish,  that is, make the mine pay dividends,  but we do believe that the LeRoi  shareholders will be fairly and squarel)  dealt with by Mr. McMillan, whatever  his leports. If they get this, appai-  ently it will be more than they think  they have been receiving foi some time  past.  No mine in British Columbia prob  ably has been more expensively managed than the LeRoi of Rossland, and  none has had its stock kicked around  so much from pillar to post. The directors are beginning to realize this at  last, and are taking common sense  steps to put a stop to it���steps that  should have been taken long ago. Ii  Mr. McMillan can assist in this uud-  able reform, he will get no more praise  than is his due���the Vancouver Prov  ince to the contrary notwithstanding.  Sandon ore shipments for last week  were 81 tons.  Rossland mines shipped 6,730 tons  of ore last week.  Last week 209 tons of Slocan oie  passed tluough Kaslo.  The Highlander mine at Ainsworth  is to be operated actively, and mules  used for hauling the cars from lire face  to the portal of the tunnel.  After many delays, the announce  ment is now made that the constiuc-  tion, of the Marysville smetler in East  Kootenay, will be rushed to early  completion  H. Poner and G.Johnson have made  a rich strike on the Goat ridge, five  miles from Trout Lake City, from which  they have taken some splendid copper  and galena ore.  . The Velvet mine, near Rossland,  will put in the first concentrating plant  iu that camp, tviih an initial capacity  of 25 tons daily. It is tin the nature  of an experiment.  The fin nace at Irondale is working  10 its full capacity, 50 tons a.day, and  turning cut an excellent quality of pig  iron, which is in good demand in the  Pacific Coast market.  W. JJlakemore M. E., thinks if the  stiike is not immediately settled, the  Coal Creek mines may be closed and  the town of Fernie ruined, as the mine  was so badly shaken up by the recent  explosion it may cave iu. .  ��� At the Stemwinder mine, Fairview,  some 80 men are employed, the 46  stamps being kept busy pounding out  gold. The mine is repotted to be  looking bettei than ever before, on account of recent development.

McAdams was immoderate, and  sentenced him to nine months' imprisonment for the offence.  And this was not all. Unless hi  provides four securities of $1,000 each  for his good future conduct in this respect, he must serve a.year additional.  This severe sentence was for publishing in his paper, The Sandon Pay-  streak, the statement that the bench ol  this province was "corrupt, lazy, de  baiiched, and prejudiced." The article  containing these words appeared in the  issue of May 17, 1902, and was a com  ment on the action of Clarke vs. CoU  lorn, a mining case.  The first summons of the court was  defied, and the prisoner was brought  down under special warrant. At his  trial he admitted that he should 1101  have declared the court corrupt.  McAdams is about 25 years of age.  The pumps in the famous Ontario  mine of Utah, cost more than $1,006,-  000.

The Na|)oleon mine, near Copper-  opolis, is the oldest copper mine in  California.  'I'he Calumet & Heela Mining Company, of Michigan, has paid nearly  ��80,000,600 in dividends.  7 T'he Detroit Copper Mining Company, Morenci, Aiizona, produced last  year 18.000,000 pounds of copper bullion.    7 .."...  Ihe production of electrolytic copper; ii) the United States in 1892 was  50,000,000 pounds; in 1900 it exceeded ^co,000,000 pounds.  The ,copper production ofthe United  -States in 1899 was 568,216,921 pounds,  in-1900 it was 602,808,839 pounds  and in. 1901 (estimated)  629,800,000.  In 1888; the value of the copper  production iiii the United Stales was  ���1>33.833.954. In' 1S98 (lenyeais later)  it was $61,849,132. In 1900 it was  $101,222,712.  The principle of electrolysis, discovered by Professor Faraday, was  first used in the United Slates at the  Halbach smelting works, Newaik, New  jersey, in 1881.  T'he Mansfield mines in Germany  are the oldest active copper mines in  the world. They weie opened in 1199  and have.beeli continuously worked  since. 'I'he Rio Tinto of Spain, may  be the oldest/but not productive.  'I'he Anaconda mine, in Montana,  is the largest single procucer of copper  in the world. Its annual picduction  is about 100,000,000 pounds.  The first successful cOnveiting plant  for the bessemerizing of .coppei matte  was built at Lyons,  France,   in  18S1.  This process was shortly after adopted  at the Parrot mine in Montana. |  Michigan, ��� Montana and Arizona  furnish, practically, all the coppei produced in the United States, tneir combined production being nearly 540,-  000,000 pounds out of a total of 630,-  000,000 pounds.  Since the year 1S60 the highest  price of copper in the United States  was fifty-five cents a pound. That  was in July, 1864. Since the same  year (i860), the lowest prire recorded  is nine cents per pound. At that low  figure it remained during June, July  and August,  1S94.  Exports of copper from the United  States in 1873 amounted, in value, to  $259,076; in the year 1900 the exports  amounted, in value, to $55,285,047.  New W. F. of M. President.  Chas.
