Tim advantages likely to accrue
from the establishment of a plant
at Victoria for assaying large ore
sample were discussed at a special meeting of the city council
held last evening. Aid. Williams
introduced Mr, Cowell, mining
engineer and assayer, who has
interested himself in the erection
'of a pi
*e ,Mr, (Well statod "that -the
proposition was tho establishment ol a sampling and testing
works capable of treating large
specimens of ore, say ten tons,
so that owners could ascertain
its exact value. No such works
havo yot boen established in Canada, and should they be built
here, every one in the Dominion
would look to Victoria for definite
information as to ore values, Mr,
Cowell further explained that
his .scheme was to have a small
smelter and a stamp mill; each
with a capacity of about live tons
a day, and in connection with the
latter clilovination works and
cyanide process. Such u plant
would be of the greatest advantage. It would give accurate information regarding the richness
of the ore, provide an opportunity for educating the young men
of British Columbia in assaying
and treating ores, make prospectors be!let' ecpiippbd for their
work, and il would bring business
to Victoria lo have such works
in operation in the city, anil for
this reason Mr. Cowell considered
tliat the scheme should receive
the support of the city council.
Mr, Cowell, ii) answer to ques-
lions from the aldermen, ex plain-
mi lhat while the establishment
of a larger smeller would cost
$500,000, such a scheme as his
could be carried out with an expenditure ol §10,000, These
works would be ol' the greatest
possible advantage to Albernl,
Gordon River and Texada Island
districts,
In answer to Aid. Partridge,
Mr. Cowell statod llinl a company
was being I'lirmod, nnd he for
one was ready to invest. All
they now wauled wits the approval and moral support of the
council, Thoy might ask later
for free water and an exemption
I'l'otn taxation 1'or a period of
years.
The council then passed a resolution wishing the project
success ami providing hu' further
consideration at a future meet-
Ihy,   The tjuvDnunenti ami the
every province is
asserts (hat such
outset may result; ItJ

Review correspond >nt and gives
the following version of the
tragedy;
•'On Saturday afternoon, about
half past 1.1 was in the Highland
saloon, and for the lirst time iup''u
my life saw Dywer, who was hi'1.'11,'
an altercation with the bartender;'
He applied some vile epithets tor ,''.
me and followed me on the street i
catching me by the necktie. I
throw him off and walked down worth and
the street, Half an hour later I
■ went to the Club restaurant,
where I board, to get my dinner.
As I went in I noticed deceased
sitting al one of the tables. I sat
down and waited for my dinner.
As soon as Dwyer saw me he
started, as formerly, to call me
all sorts of names and threatened
to whip me, Just as my dinner
arrived, with the intention of
avoiding trouble and getting my
dinner elsewhere, I started to
leave the restaurant, when Dwyer
came al mo with a knife and fork
iu each hand. With the idea of
self-defence I .struck at him and
knocked him through the window
of the door, He came for mo a
second time, and I. again knocked
him down, and as he fell he
caught me round the knees and I
fell heavily on his ehest, It is
said that the force of Ibis fall on
his ehest caused his death, 1
then left lite restaurant and saw
no more o! Dwyer,"
However, if appears that
Dwyer was around town the rest
ol llie evening iu a very fractious
mood, and in a saloon on Unserve
street threatened to whip an Italian, lie was seen asleep in a
ehnir afterwards, from which lie
fell heavily on his head. He was
found lying between two buildings at an early hour Sunday
morning and taken to the hospil-
moments bloocjy corpses, all shot
almost beyond recognition, so

Spanish, lire, wits all that remained nf Ihe gallant Cubans, who
liad.liitsled to,Spanish honor.
Only one. iiicmher of the stall'
escaped, and licit was Dr. Kevin-
cha. The letter then goes nn to
say that the corpses were hnrii'd
n;i ihe tield. and every precaution
taken tn keep the details nf the
horrible imiehory from lining
is the opinion
.if many that this dreadful nssns

Tho National Matte Smelter,
A praotioal, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
sueh as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in looalities where
lead ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has boon recognized with highly
satisfactory results, nud has
been thoroughly tested on vari>
otts pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80
tons per day, It is the simplest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating that,
is known to-day,
It requires uo extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the smel.
tor after it is started, The sulphor in the ore is its natural
fuel only, and its cost hits no
comparison with any other process of concentrating.
Wo are prepared to furnish any
