IVforits tho Attention of Mining
Mon and Capitalists.
The staff correspondent (II. ,]���
Baron) of the Mining; Reporter,
Denver, Co!., in an arlicle to bis
journal, has the following to sr.y ol
his recent visit to Poplar. Two excellent photo illustrations accompany the article.
The camp of Poplar in the Lardeau district of lhe West Kootenay
section of British Columbia, is
reached from Nelson by taking the
Canadian Pacific railway's steamer
to Lardo at the head of the beautiful Kootenay lake (a distance ol
sixty-three miles) ; thence by rail
twenty-five miles to the Poplar
station. Tho trip requires about
seven hours, antl affords one a
splendid idea ofthe ruggednessand
grandeur of lhe lower Selkirk range.
The district, while not now to
prospectors (locations along Poplar
creek having been made ten years
ago) first attracted considerable
attention in Juno of last year by the
discovery ot rich gold quartz (from
which, perhaps, the finest gold
specimens in thc province were
taken) on the Lucky Jack claim on
Poplar creek and about noo feet
from the railroad tracks. Wilh thc
excitement and rush incidental to
this discover)-, there has grown up
a town of substantial log and frame
buildings used ns ho.tels, stores and
dwelling houses, All lines of business are fairly well represented, including a weekly newspaper.
Considerable- desultory surface
work has been done on a number of
properties, and' iii every instance
lhe gold values are reported to be
very generally uniform.
The disirict embraces a small
area of lhe lower Lardeau river
basin below Trout Lake, the locations on which any work has been
done being along Poplar and Rapid
creeks, which empty into lhe Lai*,
deau river about oue and a hall
miles apart. The mineralized veins
occur in slates and diabase schists,
which along with greenstones,
chlnritic schists and pinHides, wilh
occasional hands of limestone, con
stitute the rocks of the belt which
presumably extends northwesterly
across Silver Cup mountain, and
constitutes the more southerly portion of the fairly well traced central
belt ol the Lardeau country. There
are two vein systems, one paralleling the schist formation northwest
southeast, another coursing almost
north-south across the formation,
Tho veins are fairlv well defined and
very numerous. The gold occurs
in the quartz, in the sulphides, and
even in the country rock' inclusions.
The values are not evenly distri*
buted, and in some cases, 'where no
gold is visible, both the sulphides
and the quartz pan readily. Arseni'
cal iron pyrites are common, and
nre usually rich in free gold, some
of which is often visible, lt is curious lo .nolo ihe rich mineralization
in thc schist, which in most cases
forms ill-defined  walls, and is, perhaps, more properly  regarded as a
paystreak  parting,     Mineralogists
who bave visited lhe  district, how-
ever, are not inclined to believe that
the schist will carry pay-values at I
depth,     holding    rather   that   the!
quartz, with its associated sulphides,
alena and arseno-pyrites, will make
the mines.    As in all free-milling
camps, exceedingly high assays are,
obtainable,  but the riiore conservative figure an average ol the values
between $6 and $25,
With its known 'large area of
auriferous ground, its. splendid
transportation facilities, its abundance of timber lor all purposes, its
water power available from Lardeau
river. Poplar and Rapid creeks, its
unexcelled deep tunnel opportunities, clc., the camp certainly merits
the attention of mining men and
the inllux of the desired capital.
The Union Jack.
Well Pleased With The
Black Diamond.
We received a visit on Tuesday
last from four expert mining men,
Messrs. D, Longyear, (Lansing,
Mich.), M. Runnels (Port Huron,
Mich.), A. P. Enriest (Seattle), and
j. E. 'Ennest (Detroit). The party
are visiting the Lardeau in the in-
lerests of an eastern company.
The pany arrived here alter a lour
days' journey, and on Monday they
inspected the Black Diamond, a
property owned by iheir company
which ts situated on Hnskin'*-. creek,
on lhe Silver Cup siope. They
were greatly pleased wilt) the showing
and development work done. It is
to be inferred Irom this satisfactory
visit that mining operations on a
wide scale will ensue. On Tuesday
lhe party paid a visit to the Silver
Cup mill, and it goes without say-
���ing they were all pleased with
the company's system of concentrating and chlorination.
Excellent reporis continue to
reach us from llic Union jack. On
the occasion of our last visit the
water had beaten lhe men oa! cf
the upraise when they were right
into the solid ore, but not discouraged at this reverse tliey have been
crosscutling lo lap the main lead.
The main tunnel is now in over 300
feel, and the first lead of quartz
and iron was encountered at .100
feet in. Assays Trom this po:nt
were $30. Now driving on the
back of tbis lead they have shuck
5 feet ol fine ledge matter, with 4
teet 'of concentrating ore. 1.011
Thompson was in town on Tuesday,
and he informs us that she is looking better wilh every .'hot. Mr. J.
C. Kirkpatrick believe* tiie/ will be
getting the clean 01 e cat before the
snow Hies.
Silver Dollar Group,
This property, which is owned by
the Ehvood Tiuworkeis Gold Mining Company, of Ehvood, Indiana,
will have a compressor at v. ork as
soon as everything is in shape.
The property is situate on Mohawk
creek, aad a great amount of development work has rc-.-j.itiy ben
done. The Silver Dollar group
consists of three full claims and two
fractions, vi;:, : Littlo Johnny, bin
Dollar, Carbonate lliii. Gillman
fraction and Carbonate lhii fraction, comprising in all about 175
acres, nearly all ot which is well
limbered. Four separate and distinct leads have been discovered,
each carrrying high values in gold
and silver.
A lease and bond on the Cowboy
and Texas group of claims on
Spring creek was taken last week
by Harry Newcoinb, who has interested with him I). \V. Moore and
J. A. Whittier, and work was commenced at once. The amount of
1113 bond was for $30,000.���The
Who Cooks the News ?
Honolulu, Sept. 26, ��� Melton
Prior, the Hrilish newspaper correspondent, who arrived here today from Yokohama, says he feels
absolutely certain that the war in
the far east will continue for some
time. Everything points to the
most awful war in the world's history. Mr. Pnor complains that the
Japanese have displayed bad faith
towards all the correspondents.
This, ne says, is his 27th campaign,
and it is the only one in which he
has seen nothing. He believes
with the possible exception ot tire
battle of Liao Yang that not one of
the correspondents has seen a shot
fired, and doubts if any newspaper
man saw the battle of Lioa Yang,

Toronto, Sept. 28.���A dispatch
from Montreal says that the Dominion general elections will be held
on October 27 or cS, and that the
Quebec elections will follow exactly
a month later. It is also stated
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier will run
against Mr. Bergeron in Beauhar-

and that Mr. Tarte will not be a
candidate in any constituency.
Masked men held up a saloon in

With the clearance nt ihe right-oi-

everything looked rosy for a grand

sent many a company into liquidation. All these difficulties have
been surmounted by the management, and wilh the elements al all

the current issue of tho B. C.'Mining

is a " slap at the Eagle for its timely
demand foi' a wagon-road up the North
Pork trail."
" Wo five first place to no ono in

we cannot congratulate a number of
our contemporaries upon the wild outcry they nro making becauso the Provincial Government does uot build u

The foregoing editorial in that excellent monthly journal appeared before we went to press inst week, so our
correspondent will readily conceive
that we cannot trouble ourselves to
" lit the cap " and while fully agreeing with the primaries of our contemporary, take advautage of the occasion
to point out the pressing need of a good
road at the point mentioned. We
