tho oltl smelter havo boou torn down

of demolition it wan round that the

silver values, bolchod from the Hues

years of operation. It Ih estimated
that thouHHiidH or tous of tho two
metals wore oarlod olf in tho process
of reduction of the ores; that is to
hay that tho methods for their re
covery were mo imperfect, compared
with present mehodti, that a largo
percentage of the values in the oie
were not recovered. At its new plant

they will be leached out, after which
the residue will be trammed back to
the furnaces, where alt the mineral
will bo extracted. All of which helpB
to make clear oue thing, and that is
what under the old methods of re
duction was allowed to go off into
thin air, contains valuer sufficient
Jto pay dividends on a largo iuveat-

AugeloB Mining Record.
The decreiiHO In tho gold output of
tho Canadian Yukon from 822,000,
000 in tho banner year of 1000 to
812,250,000 IubI year would In
dicate that the plitcor deposits are
being exhausted, and ttuoh is tho
oafle, acorordlug to the report of
the Geological Survoy of Canada,
juat lonioil. Hut tho activity is by
no muium .lecreahng in this district,
aa macbluery in being extensively In
troduced with the reHiilt that many of
tho low-grade gravol clalmB are beiug
now worked with profit. As in other
dish iota, the placer minor with hh
pan ia being tticoooded by the capi
tal with machinery to scientifically
develop the mines. This, too, will
in time bo foil invert by the mining
of the gold-bearing lodges from
whence came tho gold of tho placers.
Thoso lodges in the Yukon district
havo aa yet not beou (Uncovered, but
thoy are Hiirely there and with their
discovery and tho advent of cheap
transportation iuto tho district, will
undohtitudly Increase ita output and
continue It for a- long time. Mining
Gin-Sing Farm iu City Limits.
A couple of mou who pose around
bore as miniug operators, J. H. Fry or
and L. V. Swiggett, drove into town
today in a farm wagou, bringing
with them a plow, whlflllo trot and
other agricultural acooHories. Placed
in the journalistic sweat box by a
Minor reporter, they admitted tbolr
guilt, confessed that thoy are about to
embark in a farming enterprise.
They explained, however, seeming to
think that it cousituted an extenuat
ing circutiHtanco, that they do not
Intend tortalso anything that is tit to
eat, by man or beast. Tho shameful
truth of tho matter is, thoy aro going
to cutlivate a patch or glnslng right
In tho city limits. Swiggett, howQ
over, agrees to give bond that he will
not incorporate the enterprise and
olfer for sale stock In the company.
It is a siisi iciotH transaction, auy
way you take it for, if stock is uot
to be sold, then what is their graft?
