 Ii    V  DAILY   EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY ;|IO_lM_iG, MAY 2 J 900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  I1*..  BOERS COT OUT OF THE TRAP  Tables Nearly Turned.  London, May 1. ��� "Winston  Churchill, telegraphing to tho  Morning Post from "Thaba 'Nehu,  April 2Sth, and describing tho  operations there, says :  "Yesterdayupon the withdrawal  of tho British demonstrations ou  both flanks of the enemy tlio Boers  pressed to close quarters, and Kitchener's Horse wore iiniablc to  evacuate their position until midnight. The suspense caused great  anxiety. Today's operations were  intended to drive out and to intercept the Boers. They occupied a  / wide horseshoe of the mountains  %    with the convex face to us.  "General Hamilton succeeded iu  crushing the Boers on the right aud  opening a road for general Dickenson's cavalry brigade which dashed  through and hunted the enemy  from ridge to ridge shelling them  with horse artillery. At last we  arrived at the rear of the horse  shoe and the Boers in parties of  200 could be seen within the enclosed space running about like  nits in a trap. Dickenson hoped  to make a bag and he signalled to  Hamilton regarding the situation.  Hamilton ��at ouce came, bringing  up every soldier he could find.  .'./���Suddenly, about half-past four,  the Boer army, nearly 4000 strong,  moved out of the horseshoe and began marching northeast. I have  never before seen such an array of  Boers. The order was. so regular  that at first it was believed these  were general Gordon's brigade, but  a-, thoy quickly opened with artillery  on Dickenson.  '���At the same time the Boors who  had escaped earlier in the day from  our trap turned in force on Dickenson's left and rear with two guns.  In the circumstances Dickenson resolved to retire, and he only just  w ithdrew in time.  =  . Two-Miners Perish.  JKaslo, May J.���[Special  to The  Tribune.]���It  is   feared  that  Erie  *Iihicson and Pete Fosa-have found  their  tombs   iu   the   groat Lardo  g'ueior.    Their bodies  will  icmain  in  this, sepulcher of ice  till  snow  melts  in  June, and  they   can be  giveiu earth-to-earth   burial.   The  two   Swedes   wero   miners.   They  left* here last fall for   their 'claims  on Bear creek in the Lardo-Duncan  country, high up among the mountains.    They intended   to work all  -u inter long and to return to civilization   in   April.    They    did   not  rome, and    their   friends   became  -;.fraid that two more  names had  bi-on added to the long roll of dead  miners. "Yesterday the  news was  i eeeived here that a snowslide had  ���-.'.vept down where they wero working, carrying tlieir cabin away and  'Liking the miners to certain death.  J party has left here  to see if remains can be  found, but  it  is  un-  Jikely-that the suow-will-yield-up  iti dead until next June,  More Sympathetic Cables.  OrfAWA, May 1.���-[Special to The  Tribune.]���The governor - general  received tho following cable from  the lord piovobt of Glasgow today:  4,At a special meeting of the corporation of Glasgow- today it was  unanimously resolved to express  through you to the inhabitants of  Ottawa their deepest condolence  with all who,have suffered by the  deplorable disaster, and especially  with those who have lost relative.,  and friends. I have offered to receive and forward any subscriptions  from Glasgow'towards the relief of  i ho sufferers. (Signed) The Lord  Provost." Another cable received  Ly lord Minto from lord Lanning-  ton, Queensland, says: "My government and I express sympathy  for the serious calamity of Ottawa.  (Signed)   Lannington."  Relief Voted Unanimously,  Ottawa, May 1��� [Special to The  Tiibunef.���Parliament today discussed the* great conflagration of  Thursday last. As soon as the  house met Laurier brought the subject up, pointing out that the government acted speedily by promising to ask parliament for $100,000,  and giving $10,000 of this amount  at once to meet cases of emergency.  As soon as he had done this the  premier* stated that he had advised  , Tupper of the course that the  government had pursued, and  kot a letter from the leader  of the opposition in return,  endorsing the action of the administration. Tupper spoke briefly  corroborating   what  the   premier  had stated, and said that he approved of all that had been done.  A resolution was then introduced  giving $100,000 to the relief committee, $10,000 for the new post-  office in Hull, and $21,000 for repairing the approaches to the bridge  between Ottawa aud Hull. A discussion took placo on the cause of  tho firo and there was a geueral  opinion that the lumber piles which  are allowed to be erected through  both cities were largely responsible.  Just how parliament was to prevent this no one could very well  tell., '  HEAVY FICHTIHC IMMINENT  Boers May Give Battle. *  London, May 2.-5 a.m.���Fighting heavier than at any time since  Ladysmith, seems to be imminent  near Thaba Nehu. The dispatches  of lord Roberts, dated Monday and  Tuesday, show that the Boer rear  guard stubbornly resists his advance, forcing the British on Saturday and Sunday to act chiefly on  the defensive. General French,  who is directing the operations, has  at least 15,000 "men.r Some estimates give him 30,000.    The Boers  are estimated to be at least 6000,  and possibly 10,000. According to  a dispatch from Pretoria dated  April 28 th, they were expected to  give battle and have numerous ar- |  tillery.  So long as the Boers engage the  attention of half of lord Roberts'  force'at Thaba Nehu, his advance  towards Pretoria will be delayed.  No one here,however, considers that  general Botha Avill be able to stand  longer than a few days. The feeling is that he must be beaten off by  the masses of lord Roberts.  The Boers attacked the British  outposts at Boshof, the~ headquarters of lord Methuen, on"April 28th,  but without result.1  The British guns at Warrenton  shelled the Boers out of their half  constructed trenches- on -Sunday. -  A native runner got through  from Mafeking to Costi,1 01 miles  north, on April 22nd, with dispatches for nearly all the Loudon  dailies. That to tho Morning Post  sa3rs . "We can stick it out for two  mouths or more. Nobody minds."  Colonel Plumer, who appears to  have been reinforced lately by more  Rhodesians, seems to be advancing  agaiu. A British reconnoitering  party fell into the hands' ,of the  Boers near Windsorton,  Lord Lansdowue, replying in the  house of lords yesterday to a question regarding, warm clothing for  the troops, read this dispatch from  lord Roberts: "There is no necessity to appeal for warm clothing.  Some corps havo received more  than they require, and all will be  amply provided for as soon as the  numerous eases of clothes and comforts of various descriptions can be  brought here from the base."  ���According "to-a dispatch- fromT  Lorenzo Marquez, there are 1000  British residents yet remaining in  the Transvaal, but they are to be  expelled immediately.  MAFEKING IS VERY HUNGRY  Locusts as Extra Rations.  London, May 2.���Lady Sarah  Wilson telegraphing from Mafeking  April 29th, says: "The investment  is so close that no runners have  entered or issued for ten days.  There was a terrific bombardment  on April 11th, but, with tbe exception of destroying some houses, it  was harmless. The Boers then  made a determined attack on_the  southwestern forts, which was successfully repulsed. *  "The Boers have formed a new  laager on the south. Many horses  are dying of horse "sickness. Trees  are being cut down for fuel. The  garrison is now eating the ambulance oxen, reserving -the mules  until the last. The daily ration is  now six ounces of gritty bat bread,  a pound of bully beef and a quart  of. skilly."  London, May 2.���A dispatch to  the Times from Mafeking, dated  April 20th, says: "A side light is  thrown upon the hungry condition  of the garrison by the fact that the  united efforts of the whites and  natives have recently been devoted  to catching a swarm of locusts  which passed over the town."  Palaces of Fine Airts .'Operiei  Paris, May 1.���President Loubet  inaugurated the palaces offine arts  this afternoon.     He drove to the  exposition   along    a    troop    line  routed for the Elysee.     The fine  arts palaces are situated in the portion of the grounds adjoining the  Champs   Elysees.     The   president  drove to the terrace where the premier, M.    Waldeck-Rousseau,   the  members of the cabinet and the exposition authorities had assembled.  After the usual greetings the president made a tour of the rooms, being    received    at    the - entrance  of     each     foreign     section     by  their     respective    commissioners.  The American exhibit, which is an  attractive one,-, is.-placed between  the British" and French sections and  occupies a splendid location ahead  of a grand staircase.   The galleries  are hung and furnished with rich  materials, the prevailing tone being  sage green, which is a very restful  color in contrast with the strong  red coverings of the adjacent sections.   The museums and private  collectors of the United States*who  have been appealed to, have loaned  valuable   paintings which has resulted in an exceedingly creditable  exhibit of American art.  ed action of the .ambulance corjDS  from Chicago in casting away their  Red Cross emblems as soon as they  arrived on the field of war in South  Africa and taking up arms in the  Boer cause. There were about 58  men in the expedition when it left  New York, a proper numb* for an  ambulance corps. ; But when this  party was swelled at Lisbon by  about 150 men who had preceded  them, suspicion was aroused as to  the true character -of the men. It  is not felt that tiie Red Cross of  America has been to'blame in' this  matter, or that it can be held responsible for,the actions of a party  organized as was this one, entirely  outside of the" /--society's, own  material.;   -���".���,< -M'��"''��� : : > '  NEW BALL GROUND AND PARK  FATAL EXPLOSION IN A MINE  Over a Hundred Killed.  Salt Laiue, TJtalipIay .1.���A terrific explosion occurred today in the  winter quarters/ of. the Pleasant  Valley Camps coal, mine at Scho-  field on the Rio'Grande Western  railway near Colton by which, according to repqrts,"over 100 people  were killed and inany. injured. It  is reported that 90 bodies have already been recovered. The explosion is, attributed to" the blowing up  of a number of kegs of blasting  powder. The worlCof rescue is "going on. Everything possible is being done to relieve .the sufferiug  and ascertain the number of dead.  Among the, dead fourteen bodies  have been identified.  A special from ������ Schofield states  positively that there have been 85  dead bodies taken out of the Pleasant coal mine No. 4. There were  250 men at work in the two mines,  Nos. 1 and 2. The remainder of the  miners are dead. The explosion is  supposed to have occurred in No. 4  and to have extended by action to  No. 1.  Wilson's Election Promises.  Vancouver, May L���[Special to  The Tribune.] --News from Kamloops says that F, J. Fulton, running ostensibly as an independent  Conservative, has received a letter  from leader Charles Wilson of tho  party-line Conservatives, in which  Wilson sayb in effect that he believes that the Victoria, Vancouver  & Kit stern railway iti feasible. He  promises that if he is placed in  pow.er, he will, within thirty days,  send out a corps of engineers to ascertain if the route is feasible, and  if their report is favorable he will  advise that the line be built and  operated by the province. Several  thousand of the l'ecently arrived  Japanese will leave at once to work  on fruit farms in California.  How the Cross Was Won.  London, May 1.���A letter from  sergeant Parker, who is believed to  be one of those just decorated with  the Victoria Cross, describing the  Saunas Pport disaster is published  today. He says: "In galloping  from the spruit ray gun was overturned and every horse was shot. I  got up with No._4 gutiand we re-  mained-h~our& "under the most  terrible fire. In five minutes Iliad  lost two complete detachments and  only one gunner, Hodge and myself  were left to work two guns, loading  aud firing both ourselves and  brought both guns out of action  ourselves. We have been recommended for the Victoria Cross."  Mayor of Havana Resigns*  , Havana, May l,~-Senor���Estrala  Mora resigned the'office of acting  mayor today, giving out as a reason  the pressure of private a/fans. For  some time it had been recognized,  however, that he would not serve  out the entire term, as he evidently  feared to shoulder the responsibility  of many thiugs done during the  last twelve1 months, under, as he  alleged "military dictation." Without doubt? his connection with the  Havana charter commission also influenced him. This commission  was always particularly obnoxious  to themembcrs of the municipality,  especially as only one of the commissioners did not receive pay in  some other branch of the government service.  Britibh Subjects Expelled.  Pektoria, April 30.���As a sequence to the Johannesburg explosion, the government has ordered  all British subjects, with a few exceptions, to leave the republic  within 48 hours. Nearly ��4000 has  been subscribed for the relief of the  victims. Commandant Schat has  been relieved of the military command at Johannesburg and has  gone on a separate command.  Boer Activity Near Ladysmith.  Ladyhaiitii, May 1.���There is renewed activity among the Boers on  this side of the Drakeuberg mountains. Preparations here to check  an advance are complete.  Canal Bill Taken Up.  Washington, May 1.���For the  first time, during the fifty years of  the agitation for the construction  of the inter-oceanic canal, the house  of representatives today entered  upon the consideration of a measure  to actually authorize the^ building  of a canal. Many times propositions  bearing on the -subject have been  before the house, but this was the  first positive action. Tomorrow  the bill will be voted upon before  adjournment.  Forest Tires in Michigan.  Ikon "Mountain, Michigan, May  1.���A steamer from here reached  Niagara in time to save the place  from destruction by the forest fires  which are raging. In Breen and  Welch townships, this county, the  woods are on fire, and an immense  amount of valuable timber is being  destroyed. The fires are doing  much damage between here and  Wausankee and North Ontonogan.  Does Not Please Miss Barton.  Washington, May 1.���f'If the reports be true, these men have practiced gross deception, broken a  pledge and violated a confidence  which they sought. Tho humane  world will not hold them guiltless."  This was the declaration of Miss  Clara Barton respecting fche rej>ort-  Keeping Out Chinamen.  Manila, May 1.���Major-general  Otis has issued an order wliich will  have the effect of stopping the  evasion of the Chinese immigration  -laws.���Instead-of the certificate so f  former residence issued by American consuls at the chief ports,  Chinamen desiring to enter the  country must produce credentials  proving former residence with proof  that they still have property or  domestic interests in ���oho Philippines. ������        '  Turkish Customs Settled.  I/ONDON, May 2.���The Constantinople correspondent of the Standard says : - "Tho note of the porte  'on the customs duties is declined  by tiie embassies to be completely  satisfactory. Negotiations for the  adoption of a specific tariff next  year are expected to begin soon.  Thus the Porte closer what threatened to be a disagreeable question."  Boers at St. Helena.  Jamestown, St. Helena, May l.���  The British transport Bavaria lias  arrived here from Cape Town with  1099 Boer prisoners. AU are in excellent health.

Marietta, Michigan, May 1".���The  Phounix Hour mills ai*d grain elevator wero burned to the ground.  Loss $100,000, insurance $30,000.  Will Soon be Ready.  Fairview, better kuow as Bogus-  town, has long been recognized as .a  desirable residential quarter, but  soon it will have other claims on  the attention of citizens. The Nelson Tramway Company has an interest in the townsite, and is doing  its best to make it attractive by  laying out recreation grounds and  a park.  The street car track has been laid  for a little - over a - half a mile  beyond the present terminus,  and there a large tract of land  has been cleared off and stones  removed. It- still requires a  little levelling and to have some  stumps taken out, and then it will  make an excellent field for either  baseball or lacrosse. Some baseball  men were down there yesterday  and expressed their approval of the  proposed- ground. The tramway  company will erect a large grand  stand to accomodate spectators, and  will give the local athletic clubs the  use of the ground free of charge.  The new ground is incomparably  superior to the present recreation'  grounds, and the tramway makes  the extra distance count for little  or nothing. Just beyond the ball  ground is the rifle range. The  grounds will be ready and .the cars  running to them in about two  weeks.  A covered-in station will be built  at the new terminus, and from there  a sidewalk Avill be built on to the  park wliich the company is laying  out and which starts a few hundred  yards farther on. The proposed  park is a long strip of land lying  between the car line and the lake,  where there is a shelving sandy  beach, Hero the company will  erect bathing and boat houses.  Seats will also be placed in the  woods above the beach, where there  is always a breeze from-the lake,  aud it is .expected that this will  become a favorite resort in the hot  , weather. The bathing will be absolutely safe there, eveu for' children,  and the view of the lake obtained  there is lovely. Altogether it forms  a splendid site for a park, es/iecially  a", unlike some parts of Bogustown,  it is not in the least marshy.  These recreation grounds and  park will be of great advantage to  Nelson, and are easily approachable.  Not only do the street car and the  bicycle -path run there, but the  Nelson avenue,-along which the car  runs, is 90 feet wide, and this will  be graded to its full width, affording an excellent driving i oad when  buggies become commoner in  Nelson than they are at present.  ' ���      Lacrosse in Nelson.  The lacrosse enthusiasts have  made a move toward organizing at  last, and a meeting takes place at  the fireball tonight at 8 o'clock. The  -formation of-the chib for the season  and the election of officers are tlio  leading items on the program after  which the question of bringing a  crack team from the Coast to play  here on Dominion day will be considered. The report as to material  available for a fast team if most  encouraging. The removal of Fred  Lynch from the city makes a hole  in the defence line, but there are  othr-r player*-! quite capable of doing  tho woik. The team will havo  several new and fast forwards and  iu this particular will bo considerably stronger than last year's  twelve. Laeroe'sc players and those  intorchted in Canada's national  pastime arc urged to turn out lo  the meeting.  Customs Returns.

II. li, Ceperley of Viineouvei*,  who is in the city in connection  with lite adjustment of the losses  on the Burn*- block, i*-- a member of  the board of insurance underwriters and has expressed himself a-.  dUposcd to encourage tho formation of a volunteer salvage corps  auxiliary to Nelson's fire  brigade  He   believes,   however, = that    the  board will hesitate before extending financial aid to the project, as a  salvage corps in a city under 100,-  000 population is a new proposition.  Iii aiiy event he states that the  companies represented on the underwriters' board will   require to  submit   the   application    to   their  head offices, which would take considerable   time.     When   asked   if.  the    insurance    company    would  recognize   the     work    of   a   salvage     corps     by " granting     the  members a ...fair, proportion  of the  value of goods saved from loss, Mr.  Ceperley expressed an opinion in  the._ffirmative,,basing his"judgment  on ���ie merits of the.suggestion as a  business    proposition.     Alderman  Irvine,  who is  the father of���' the  ^salvage corps idea, declares that he  will boom the project to a finish.:  He is.now awaiting a communication from the Underwriter's ���Association before calling a meeting to  organize.     "��� - '.' '.' .' :.   . '  GRAVE SCANDAL REPORTED  NO LIBERAL WILL BE RUN  As-  last  the  Byder Will Not Run.  Victoria, May 2���[Special to The  Tribune].���A grave political scandal  appears'to be developing in Comox.  Advices from there, published in  the Times today, are , that Ryder,  Martin's finance minister, apparently has abandoned any thought  of candidature, and that indications point to the success of the  overtures to W. W. B. Mclnnes,  M. P., to contest that constituency  against Mounce, already in the field  as anti-Martin. Ralph Smith of  Nanaimo says he has reason to  credit these reports.  The position thus created is that  the finance portfolio is iu the  hands of an obscure individual who,  not only,has never been elected,  but who has no intention of "even  standing for election, simply draw-,  ing his salary until polling day.  The $4000 illegally takeir by governor's ;warrant to spend-on roads  in the Comox district would become  for the advantage of the governor's  son as a candidate for the district,  and prospective successor to Ryder  in the cabinet.  Alaskan. Code Bill Passed.  Washington-*, May 1. ���-After  having been under consideration  consideration moie than , two  months*, the Alaskan code bill *na$  passed by, the .senate today. The  amendment relating to alien mining claims has delayed the passage  of the measure for- several weeks.  Mr. Carter of Montana, therefore,  today withdrew his amendment aud  all other points in dispute, and a  few minutes later the bill passed.  The Jury Disagreed.

The meeting of the Liberal  sociation at Fraternity Hall  night was the best attended in  history of Nelson". At tho outset  over a hundred were present, ancl  when, after a session lasting until  nearly midnight, a resolution reaffirming a motion passed at a previous meeting to the effect that the  coming elections be not contested  on party lines in Nelson, was  adopted, the voting' stood at 50  to .35. o   '  The meeting looked like dispersing  without the party lines  question"  being brought  up,  but when  the  discussion was started a wide difference of opinion was manifested.   A  minority was in favor of running a  Liberal candidate in Nelson at all  hazards, and Dr. G. A. B. Hall was  named as the party candidate. This  was  opposed  on  various  grounds.  While all acknowledged the doctor's .  qualifications as a representative of  the riding, it was pointed out that  .  were   he   elected he would stand  alone as an independent, there beiug  no recognized Liberal leader in the  field.    The argument that had most  weight, however, was that  to  run  Dr. Hall meant a split in the party"  and the election of the Conservative -  candidate, which would have a bad -  effect on the federal elections which  are now not far distant.    The majority of those present did not wish,  to   play into   the  hands  of their  ! political opponents, and the resolution was carried as stated above.    -  . The first business of the evening  was the election  of officers, and  a  very lengthy business it was owing \  to  the  number   of   ballots  to   be  counted.    There were four nomina-*  tions for president:    W.  A.  Galliher, J. A. Gibson, Dr.  Arthur  and  *  Dr. Forin, the iirst named being reelected.    Dr.-Arthur, G. C. Tunstall  and J. A.

Mr.' Fischer,  of the delegation, who replied, ex-,  pressed the thanks .of the envoys  for the sympathy that had been  shown them by the j>eop]e of common origin with themselves. Mr.  Deerdyn, secretary of tho mission,  replying to the toast to the health  of presidents Kruger and Steynf__^  said that although some of the  Boei-5 might have returned lo their  homes for a brief visit, no commau-  doOfi of the Transvaal or the Free  Suite had permanently returned.  He declared also that the rumor of  tho submission of the Freo Staters  wa" absolutely without foundation.  Correspondence to be Published.

Mr. Forster  has represented Delta riding of  Westminster district since 1894.  He is now engaged in farming, but  followed coal mining as a trade for.  many years. Mr. Forster is looked  upon as one of the ablest of the  labor men who are prominent in  the province. He is a Liberal in  Domiuion politics, but strongly opposes the introduction of party  lines in provincial affairs, and is the  Provincial Party candidate in his  constituency.  Shipping Concentrates.  Jloyie Leader.  The St. Eugene is again a shipper.  However, this time it is not the  crude ore which is being sent to  the smelter, but concentrates, the  product of the new mill. During  the past week ten carloads, or 230  tons, were shipped to the smelter  at Great Falls, Montana. Beginning May 1st the mill will be kept  runniug both day and night. By  so doing in every 24 hours 250 tons  of ore will be crushed, making between 50 and 00 tons of concentrates. G. A. King has decided to  remain with the company, and has  been given charge of the mill.  Manager Oronin complains of a  scarcity of machine miners in the  camp, and says that there are several positions open to good men.  Many Miners Killed.

It will thus be seen that in  the two most "populous cities iu the  province   the    Conservatives    are  ~ Ispli--*  on the-party-liue- issue."In"  the interior, the Conservatives of  Rossland riding have nominated a  candidate who refuses to make the  campaign    as   a   party-line    man.  More:   lie says   that   if   he   wore  elected ho must bo free to join a  government which Liberals opposed  to Martin would be invited to support.    In Nelson the Conservatives  have nominated a party-line candidate, while fully fifty per cent of  the Conservatives .who have' votes  will poll them for a candidate who  is flat-footed in opposition to tlio  introduction  of  Dominion  politics  in this provincial  election.    These  are  fair  illustrations  of party action,  as far  as  the  Conservatives--  are concerned, and life-long Conservatives have no hesitation in declaring that they cannot be whipped  into supporting party men in an  election when the party is neither  agreed on principles nor   plan of  campaign.  It is reported that a well-known  Nelson    lawyer,    following in  the  footsteps of the illustrious editor  of the Sandon Mining Review, has  given notice that he will object to  the placing of close on to two hundred  names  011  the voters' list in  this riding.     As a matter of fact,  tiie lawyer does not know anything  about a single one of tlio names objected to, but ho   would deprive  men of the right of citizenship  merely because he believes they  will exercise their rights contrary  to his political ideas. Small business for even a lawyer.  Over, in East Kootenay the people of Cranbrook and Moyie ,��eem  to have a fairly good understanding that'either Dr. King of Cran-'  brook or D. J.

THE   COST   OF   SMELTING.  Greenwood Minor.  Greenwood vs. Grand Forks as a  smelting centre, or why the latter  lilace is not as desirable as this .city,  I'or the location of a smelting plant,  is briefly the subject of the following conversation had with Paul  Johnson, manager of the smelting  department of the British Columbia  Copper Company. Ever since  Grand Forks first came before the  public, it has laid claim to being  the only smelter point in the  lioundary district, on account of  the power capable of generation np  the North Fork of the Kettle-river,  and leaving its claim here, it forgets that power is not the only  desiratum to the success of a smelt-  .. ing plant. Mr. Johnson today drew  attention to a copy of the Rossland  Miner, of Wednesday.the.25th, containing a Grand Forks item regarding <the..financial statement of the  (���'ranby Consolidated Mining '&  .Smelting Company, which included  the question of "power and smelting charges," in wliich it claimed  that after looking the whole of the  Boundary district   over   "for   the  most suitable place to establish a  smelter, and visited the following  places with that end iu view: Cas-  ���cade, Grand Forks, Carson, Midway  and Greenwood, and, after looking  over these sites and making careful  j-urveys and figures, Ave decided  X hat Grand Forks offered the cheapest and best place." Continuing,  tlio article says : "Tn this country,  generating  horsepower   by   steam  ' w i th coal as fueTlms been found to  cost  $125 per horsepower per an-  i.tuu.    Water power,"   the  writer,  -Hysj."will cost from $15 x,o $20 per  horsepower per annum."  ';! havo'read this article over  pare-fully," Mr. Johnson said to a  Times man, "but it appears to me  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  that the old saying that 'different  doctors   havo   different   opinions'  might well be applied to the smelting question in tho Boundary district.    When  I first  camo to this  district on belialf of my compauy I  was. approached by the people  of  Grand Forks and the representative  of the Granby smelter, who told me  that  there  were really only   two  smelter sites in the Boundary.   The  best one was at Grand Forks aud  the second  best at Midway,   but  that they would generously  offer  me a free site if I would built the  Mother Lode smelter at their town.  I thanked them aud told them I intended to  look  over   the   district1  first,    ft did not take me long to  ascertain what I was most anxious  to  find out,  viz., what point  was  most  centi-al to a majority of the  camps of the district.    That point  was Greenwood, and it was here I  decided   for economic   reasons   to  locate  the smelter.    Greenwood is  the center of six mining camps, ail-  directly tributory to it, within a.  radius not ��� exceeding ten: miles ia  auy   direction, and   all   having a  natural gravitation   towards   this  place.   I do not consider a water  power such a great advantage as I  do nearness to the mines.   There*  are dozens of excellent smelter sites*,  in the district, but the question is  the cheapness of getting the ore;to  them,  which  iu  my .experience is  the  first  thing to  be reckoned in.  selecting a site for a smelter, for:a  smelter man who knows his business can always overcome the difficulty of fluxing ore.  "Now, the article iu question,  deals with the cost of the cheapness  of water power as against steam  power., Let me give you a few  figures: Jfc is claimed that one-  horse-power, per annum, costs on.  an average $125. I figure the cost  at a great deal less, bearing in mind.  that we will use compound engines,  together with ^.condensing, and in  this case it is safe to assume, with  Grow'b Nest coal as fuel, the com-  sumption of coal Avill nofc exceed  two and a half -jiounds per -horsepower per hour. This means 00  pounds of coal per horse-power  every 24 hours, and this multiplied  by .300 (representing a full yearl  Capital Authorized    $2,500,000  Capital Paid up $2,391,863  Rest    $1,554,710  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.       ;.  E. Hay, Inspecter.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Bakor Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  gives the amount for supplying one-  horse-power per annum at 21,000  pounds of coal. Crow's Nest coal  costs at the mine $2 per ton of 2000  pounds. The freight to Greenwood  is $3 per ton; thus the total cost  laid down at the smelter will be $5  per ton. These figures then give  the cost of one-horse-power per  year, as far as the producing of the  power itself is concerned, equal to  $54, as against the supposed cost of  $125. The horse-power necessary  to run a smelter of 390 tons capacity every 24 hours, you will seej is  not so much after all.  "Again,   a   smelter   of   300-tons  capacity, together with the sample  mill, which will take, every 10 per  cent of.the ore for a sample, and.by  using a No. 7_ Connesyille blower  for the blast, does not need more  than 125-liorse-power per 24 hours  for its running.     This   125-horse-  power every 24 hours will require  7500 pounds of coal, which at one-  quarter of a cent per pound makes  $18.75 the cost of the power as far  as coal is concerned for smelting 300  tons each day, so that the cost of  power really only amounts  to (5{  cents per ton-of ore treated.    This  can be improved upon to some extent by water power, which though  as  a rule requires a heavy initial  expenditure for the construction of  dams, flume and machinery.   The  saving on each ton of ore smelted  by water power may be approximately put at 2; cents a ton, or $6  for 300 tons smelted per day,' which  in.-my opinion is not an extremely  large item.  "If we now take the question of  the transportation of ores to the  smelter, which I think is the more  important one, I figure that the  average distance of the mines surrounding the smelter here from  which we expect to draw our supply  of ore, is only four miles. With the  railroad already built, and the local  tramway which has been started,  there is no reason why the ore  should cost to be transported to  the smelter here more than 40 cents  pet ton, which on a distance*of four  miles only from the .smelter makes  10 cents per ton per-mile. On the  other hand,   the distance   of the  mines at Phoenix from Grand Forks  is over 29 mile3 and I hardly believe that this ore will be hauled  this distance for less than, ou an  average, $1 a ton. Thus the Greenwood smelter by being in the center  of the mines will have an ad van-,  tage of 00 cents per ton of ore on  the average freight to the smelter.  Smelting 300 tons a day at 00 cents  less per ton on freight is a saving of  $180 per day, or $54,000 per year.  Whereas water power gives a saving of $6 per day only, which gives  $2100 for a year of 300 days on a  300-ton smelter basis per day.  After all you can see that it is not  necessary to locate a smelting plant  where water power is abundant, so  much as it is to locate it where the  mines are. There is always one  danger with water power, depending upon its supply from a dam,  which, as has'been shown in past  experience, is not always to be depended upon in time of floods, as  the dam builders will admit," he  concluded.
