Genera! Manager George L. Hedges,
of the Wauconda, at Republic, Wash.,
is exhibiting a gold button valued at
$5.80, as the result of the experimental
test of the new mill on that property.
The button was taken from the first
half ton of ore run through the mill.
Mr. Hedges has had a crew of twenty
five men employed constantly on the
property for over a year and expects to
keep that number employed throughout
the winter. The men are raising a
shaft from the tunnel level and will
continue working until the surface is
reached. The main tunnel is in 975
feet and is being driven from five to six
feet per day. Small stringers of quartz
have been encountered in the face of
The Morrison mine, Dead wood camp,
recently shipped one carload of ore to
the Granby smelter.
It. now seems probable that Che Silver
King mine, once the heaviest producer
in British Columbia, will shortly re
sumo something 1 ke its old position.
Under the able management of capt.
Gifford the development of t.he mine
lias been successfully prosecuted, so
that now, as in Lite early stages of its
prosperity, it is able fully to occupy
one of the large furnaces at the Nelson
Tho strike recently reported from
the Union Jack mine, on Porcupine
creek, has assumed large importance
from the fact that some of the best ore
evnr seen in this camp is now being
brought down from the property. A 19
inch seam of solid galena ore entirely
free from quartz has 'been uncovered,
and is widening out with every addi
tional foot of work. As the best sur
face showings are still some distance
further on it is evident t.hat the shoot
is one of considerable length.
It is stated by those on the inside
that the Rambler-Cariboo company 'is
to double its dividends after the first
of the year. There has been a push on
the stock during the last two weeks,
and the price has made quite an ad
vance as a consequence. The company
is now paying a d.vidend of a cent
every sixty days and it is to pay a cent
per month after the first of the year.
The financial condition of the Rambler
Cariboo company is said to be 'in the
best of shape. After the big com
pressor plant is paid for and other ex
penses accounted there will still be a
balance In favor of the company of be
tween $50,000 and $00,000. The com
pany is now »sinking on the ore body,
and »the men are in ore that ia even
richer than that in which they have
been working. The company is eon
etmplating sinking to the 600 foot lev
el, and if the »ore at that depth gives
the same values as are found in the
present workings the Rambler-Cariboo
will be one of the biggest mines in the
At Beaumont, Tex., a well has been
broke in, which enlarges the known oil
fields several acres, and brings it about

A cubic foot of fresh water, with the
barometer at 30 in., weighs, at 39 de
gress F„ 62.423 lb.; 62.367 lb. at 60
degrees; 62.218 lb. at 90 degrees and
only 59.1 lb. at 212 degrees, a fair av
erage being 62.23 lb., but usually called
62.5 lbs for convenience.
For tunnel and drift timbering,
round or split timbers will generally
be found most economical. In shaft
work, sawn timber will generally be
found to cost less than round timber.
The latter require much work to frame
and are not so adaptable to machinery
The Nortluport smelter was closed
down on account of the failure of the
water supply. The reservoirs were al
most empty before the shortage was
discovered. One furnace was badly
wrecked and two others were frozen up.
The management estimates the dam
age at about $4.000.
