LLiitV.
Of Ore From Tbe Silver Oup and
Nettie L. Mines For The
Year 1903.
Together With The Total Values.
Shipments Practically Discontinued Early in the Summer.
On account of the building of large
reduction works by the Silver Cup
Mines, Limited, started early last summer, shipments of oro trom the Silver
Cup and Nettie L Mines were practically discontinued at about that date,
on account of the great cost of shipping
ore in tho crude statu, it being deemed
��� wiser to await tho completion of the reduction works. Consequently, the
quantity of ore shipped during 1003
falls below what was anticipated
However, though the output of Lardeau's leading shippers was not large
during 1903, and the amount of money
received for ore was correspondingly
small, yet there was more money spent
In development worlc of different kinds
during the season, and is still being
spent, than in any previous season
dud the grea't.-harvest is yet to be
reaped ln full::���_ j lijl'-i. The operations
at these two mines has had, and will
have, a very important beaming on tho
future of the Ferguson camp. The two
biggest and oldest mines, after several
years working and shipping, have, on
the advice of the foremost metallurgical
engineers of the time, seen Bt to build
one of the largest and most complete
independent reduction works ln the
British Columbia Kootenays.
Other companies which hold properties on which the snowings are equally
as good at the surface, may to a large
extent profit by the experlenco and excellent professional services of tbe two
leading companies. If nothing more,
a position of stability is given to tbe
Camp, and the question of ohance is
practically eliminated. Outsiders will
not now feel hesitancy to speculate ln
our mining properties, for the district's
mineral veins would seem to have been
proven to have the desired permanency. And not permanency alone, but
ive believe the test has been comprehensive enough to prove that tho leads
in the great Lardeau mineral belt have
great richness,, and that they do not decrease in value, but rather increase, as
depth lsattaincd. Upon what is Known,
what bas been proven by hard toil and
costly development, we base our contention that the great rich leads that
occur so regularly and ln great number
along tho famous mineral belt that cuts
through tho country diagonally from
Kootonay lake to Fish river, whether
they he silver-lead or freo milling gold,
their permanency and their richness
would in very frequent instance seem
to havo sufficient merit to attract capital and to glvo assurance of a safe investment.
Tbe total amount of ore shipped from
the Silver Cup mine during the year
1003 was 070.125 tons, havlng.*a value of
$82,212.87.
Total amount of ore shipped from the
��� Nettle L'. for tiie year 1003 was 1012.732
tons, having a valne of $57,078.54.
A Delegate Chosen.
A meeting of conservatives was held
in Ferguson a week ago, for the* purpose
of talking over campaign matters, and
also to appoint a delegate to attend the
party convention in Nelson on the litli.
instant. W. Skinner proved the unanimous choice of the meeting, and he was
given tbe necessary credentials. The
convention Is a district one for tho pur-
, pose of choosing a candidate to contest
this riding in tho Dominion elections
soon to be held.
War Seems Inevitable.
The situation in tho east is growing
extremely critical, and it Is believed
the chances for war are greater than
ever. Peace hinges on theoharacter
of Russia's response. If the Russian
roply is unsatisfactory, it is almost certain that Japan will* light Instantly.
If Russia's response is delayed for a
week, It is expected that Japan will demand an Immediate answer. The an*
nouncement thut Russia is seeking naval stations in Corea and is buying
stores and coal in Japan, has Increased
the war spirit or the Japanese nation.
Influential newspapers are urging the
government to promptly despatch a
fleet to guard the Crotan coast and patrol tho Corean channel. The ministers
of war and navy, together with tho general advisory staffs and commanders
are conferring daily in Tokio. The
lull plans for the campaign ofthe army
have been prepared, and the scheme of
land and water transportation. The
thoroughness of Japan's preparations
is pronounced super ior to that ol Germany prior to Ihe Franco-Prussian war.
It is anticipated that Corea will be
the scone of the earliest operations.
The invasion of the Chinese territory
other than Corea and across the Yalu
river, will depend on the nature and extent of the Chinese efforts to expel the
Russians from Manchuria. Saseho
will be tho principal base of the navy
and the main point for the embat kation
of troops. It bas not yet boen disclosed
what place will be the principal army
baso, nor whether the emperor and his
councillors will go to direct the operation.
The German government has been
informed that Russia's reply to Japan
is not provocative, and that It is sincerely intended to satisfy Japan. The
aroused state of Japanese publio opinion
is fully recognized in Berlin, but chancel lot' Von Buelow and tho foreign
office do not believe tbat war is within
tho probabilities, and this view has
been communicated to tbe representatives ot the powers In Berl'n. Russia's
reply, it is officially announced, was
sent to Japan on Jan. 1st.
A powerful squadron of six armored
cruisers under Admiral Kamml Mut-a
will leave the Japanese port of Saseho
tomorrow for Mesampho, Corea. .The
design is apparently to beon the spot
and seize Mesampho in case of a break
down of tbe negotiations. There is
great activity at the Osaka arsenal.
Absolutely nothing is known inofficial circles at Paris of the advices sent
to the Japanese minister in London to
the effect that Russia had decided not
to grant tho Japanese proposals. Moreover foreign minister,. Polcnsse, left
Parts tonight for Nice, which he would
hot have done lf serious news had boon
received.
It Is asserted that Russia's roply has
not yet been fanned, aud It is expected
It will bo presented to tho Japanose
govornmont through Baron Derosen,
tho Russian minister at Tokio. It has
been known that Russia's attitude has
been changing as a result of the bellicose policy which Jupan is pursuing,
and that Russia Is disinclined to make
concussions which would havo been possible had Japan adopted a more con.II*
latory course. If there il any breaking
off of tho relations, Japan, not Russia,
will take the initiative step. '

��AN=DP
Of The Ores From The Properties
Belonging To The Great Northern Mines, Limited.
Treated At The  Oyster-Critei ion
Stamp Mill At Camborne On
The 29th Deo. Last.
Mr. Forbes Resigns.
Donald G. Forbes, manager of tbe
Silver Cup Mines, Limited, and tne
Great Western Mining Co., Limited,
hus resigned his position, and will
loavo Forguson very shortly. Mr.
Forbes assumed the management of tbe
Sliver Cup and Nettio L. Mines in July
1002. Both mines have been very
extensively devolopod since tbat time,
and a great deal of machinery installed.
We are all sorry to lose Mr. Forbes.
The first clean-up at tlie Oyster-
Criterion stump mill at Camborne took
place on tho 20th of Dec, and was witnessed by all the directors us well as a
number of tho largest shareholders,
many of whom went ovei\from Ferguson for the express purpose of witnessing
the Interesting event���interesting,
though thero wns very little, after all,
to see, and the result was nut known
by even the manager until several days
later.
There was much speculation of course
as to the probable value, but everybody
got an agreeable surprise whon it was
learned what value waS roally in the
ore. The first surprise was created
by the lowest grade quartz from the
Oyster-Criterion mine giving an average valuo of $0 per ton. Tliis ore was
believed to be almost worthless, and the
assay tests, mado by Mr. Holdich, a
very competent assayer, gave tho value
considerably lower; so tliero was an
agreeable surprise for everybody to
And that this stuff was really very profitable ore, for the cost of mining and
milling Is small. The greatest surprise, however, came when the fewtous
of ore from the Lucky Jack were
milled. Pretty good returns were expected, but no one was s greedy as to
anticipate that white quartz -with
' scarcely any gold in sight would average the phenomenal value of $250 per
ton for ten tons. It Is a fact, nevertheless, and manager Pool Is having another lot sent over to tbo mill just to
! discover whether or not the high values continue all along the tunnel.
With the great body of quartz that
they have on the Lucky Jack, it would
' not noed to average one quarter of $250
' per ton to make evory man luck of tho
stockholders wealthy.
1 Tho mill test of the Swede group ore
I averaged, as was anticipated, just .37
to the ton. This was not tho best grade
ore, but only tho medium, of which
there are very extensive bonies. The
result of the difforont mil! tests was,
however, so highly gratifying to the
directors, that an almost unprecedented action was taken In the decision to
sell no more stock in tbo- big corporation. Tho directors felt that it was
simply throwing away money to sell
. any more stock, when the money to be
derived from such stock was nut ro-
I quired. If tho mill cannot turn outsuf-
flcient gold to pay expenses of develop
\ ment, then the shareholders would put
their hands in their pockets. Of course
this action benefits all shareholders
alike In proportion to tho number of
shares held, and tho value ot such
shares Is greatly enhanced.
The manager, W. 13. Pool was seen
by an Eagle reporter on Tuesday night,
and he was found more enthusiastic
than ever over this latest piece of good
fortune for himself and associates. He
said: "Woodward, of all tho good now*.
1 have given you in tho past two years,
this I deem to bo the best. This I take
to be tbe golden crowning of our ellorts
for the past two years or less. During
thut time wo have boon developing,
fashioning the great .free gold loads in
the Oyster-Criterion property into n
mino. We were spending our monoy
in the endeavor to make a mine. Now
the mine is ours, splendidly equipped
with the latest make of machinery,
while the great leads havo proven to bo
almost Inexhaustible.   The trial day
camo last week. All out- machinery
was found to work first class, and ull
that was wanted to prove the complete
success of ouroutorpi'isowas for the ore
to givo tho result when treated in bulk
as was shown by the assay test.
"Yes, wo wore astonished to find the
Lucky Jack oro averaged so high.
Just consider what enormous values
there must be in the ground owned by
our company, We will put in a good
sized stamp mill and other necessary
machinery at Poplar next spring. Our
first consideration, however, will bo to
increase tho number of stamps in our
Camborno mill. Wo have ore enough
that will pay haudsomo profits in tho
Oyster-Criterion to justify the installing of an 80 or 100 stamp mill, but wo
will go slowly and first add another 10
stamps. This will make 20, just what
our mill wusbuiltfoi*. We have sampled
our lodgos for 700 Feet in longth aud to
a deptii of 125 feot, and we last week
lot a contraot to siuk a shaft 150 feet
from the bottom of our lowest level.
"Speaking of Poplar again, I will
say that two of tho properties, the
Swede and tho Lucky Jack, have been
givou a thorough tost. Tho Marquis &
Gilbert property will soon bu given a
mill test also, aud I am confident that
it, as well us several others, will prove
to average very high values. I believe
the hills about Poplar uro full of gold,
.and not only there, but along that groat
ricH belt that extends for about 100
miles."

The Chicago Holocaust.
One of thc most terrible calamities
rocordod in American history took
place iu Chicago on Dec. 30, when the
interior of the Iroquis. theatre was reduced to ashes. 504 persons are known
to havo perished, 157 injured, and 300
aro missing or unidentified. At the
time of the fire, tho theatre was crowded with un audience composed mainly
of women aud children. Events scorn
to have conspired to make this one of
the most heartrending scenes it is possible to imagine. The cause of the Are
is supposed to be the ignition of a portion of tlie drop scenery by an electric
arc. The order was then given to ring
down the curtain. This was done, but
unfortunately it stuck half way, thtiB
creating a strong draught whicli drove
thu Humes into the body of the theatre,
giving the occupants no ehanco of escape Tho.elTorts of the panic stricken
crowd to get to the docs wore terrible
to witness; tlie law of scl [-preservation
seemed to dominate all. Those who
went down in that mad light for life
never rose again, and somo of tho bodies
'are,so disfigured as to bo totally un.
recognisable. It Is conjectured that
more deaths are attributable to being
trampled upon than to burning. I l.v
this lamentable occurrence, which
transpired within tho space of fifteen
minutes, Chicago is turned into a city
of mourning.
New Year's Eve Masquerade.
The ladles' hockoy club of Trout Lake
held a highly successful masquerade
datioe In the Oddfellows' hall on New
Year's ove, fer the benefit of the new
skating rink, und the affair wus the
most largely attended that has beon
held in tho Lardoau for many a month.
Thero wore ovor 65 couples���too crowded to get the most enjoyment out of
dancing. No less than 30 went down
from Ferguson, and 8 or 10 camo from
Beaton. The costumes wero on the
wholo pretty and in great vat iety, many
of them Boing Imported for the occasion. Tho supper wai good also, and
the music was, as usual, excellent. The
ladies netted something over $100,
which will help to a largo extent the
management of the rink, and it shows
that tlio people appreciated this effort
of tbe ladies to be of material assistance to Trout Lake's latest institution.
There was a large number of dole-
gates at the Liberal-Conservative convention at Nelson on Wednesday, to select a candidato to contest the constituency of Kootenay at the forthcoming
Dominion general elections, which arc
expected to bo held early io February.
All parts of the riding sent delegates,
and tho interest shown by the members
of tho party generally augurs well for
victory at the polls. The best of humor prevailed throughout the proceedings of the convention, and tbe choice
was made unanimous in favor of Hon.
Chas. II. Mackintosh, of Rossland.
Chas. W. McAnn of Kaslo was present,
and also a number of friends who pulled
a strong oar for him, the principal personage being Hon. Robert, [���'. Green,
Minister of Lands and Works in the
McBride Government. However, the
members in attendance at tho convention eventually decided that as Mr.
Mackintosh had thestrongest following
and ho being an old war-horse and au
experienced parliamentarian, that he
would probably make the stronger run.
Xot that doubt was felt of tho party's
chances of winning, but it wus folt that
tho strongest man available was the
proper person.
Hon. ChaWes H. Mackintosh held
a seat for many years in tlio House
of Commons for Ottawa city,
while he was editor and proprietor of
tho "Ottawa Citizen." Ho was at that
time an ablo lieutenant of the lato Hon.
Sir John A. Macdonald. Mr. Mackintosh was appointed LIeut.-Governor of
the North Wost Territories tn 1891, At
the expiration of his term at govern,
ment house, Rcgina, whero he exerted
a strong and lasting influence over the
affairs of the growing territory, be
moved with his family to Rossland, B.C.
where he entered with his customary
vim into mining enterprises. Ho obtained nu option ou the Le Hoi mine,
and went to England, where ho was
successful In floating a company called
tho British America Corporation.
Eventually the Le Hoi mino was'soltj
tor a high figure, Mr.'Mackintosh resigned tlio management of tlie mine
soon after, and has since that time continued to take an active part in mining
mutters. Iio is at present developing
somo promising properties neariRoss-
land. Mr. Mackintosh Is a man of good
ability and nt fluont and ready speech,
lt is admitted by men (tf both parties
that he is a strung politician, uml it is
conceded that ho, abovo every man in
tho Kootenays, had most, tu do with the
opening uf the Uussland camp, and indirectly thu whole of the Kootenays,
So it will bo with pleasure when it is
learned that Mr, Maekiutush is again
to enter the field of politics,
Change of Ownership.
Change of possession by purchase
took -placo on Friday last of tho stage
routes between Ferguson and Trout
Lake and Ferguson and Beaton, J. C,
Kirkpatrick selling out to Alex. Crawford. Tho purchase also includes the
livery and cartage business, togethor
with nil conveyances, horsos, stables,
etc. Mr. Crawford has nuw a very
lartro and eonutleto outlit, nnd that he
will give satisfaction is beyond doubt.
Like S. Daney of Ferguson, he thoroughly understands his business, and
whatever theso gentlemen undertake
they will do promptly. The year ou
whicli wc have entered promises to be
a busy one, and we wish the new proprietor of ths stage routes ubundant
success. Lardeau Bagle

unwarranted criticism.
If the editor of the Hrilish Col-
umbi i Mining Record would tuke
car_ to thoroughly investigate slate-
ments emanating from Kootenay
mine operators, as well ns what
these men ure doing;, the said journal might have less to say in the
way ot criticism uff.cting Uie Lurch an country. .Mr. Pool, manager
of the Great Northern Mines, Limited, published tin open letter in some
of the lending newspapers of the interior, pointing out where error hud
been made in the provincial mineralogist's  public   interview  regarding
be unnecessary to do this. However, we repeat, when individuals or
public journals take it upon themselves lo he ci'icical, we say Itt them
first examine carefully what they
would speak or write about, for not I
unly are such comments���based upon in perfect examination���-injuriam
lo the parties directly concerned
but much more so to thc undevel
oped, unpt/pved properties in tin

EDITORIAL NOTE.
It is customary to make new resolutions at the beginning of the
year, with a view to bettering one's
condition and position, mentally,
morally and financially. .Many look
upon such resolutions as childish,
but such is not necessarily the case.
Of course one may resolve to do
better and live better at any time
during tlie year, but after all, there
is no time so appropriate to start
out with a clean sheet as at the beginning of a now* year. At this season, one usually has more leisure to
think on such things, and get a
good start on thc improved line ol
action before the cares of business
distract one's al tention from what
it was resolved to do. A good start
is everything, and if this is accom-
Iplished, one is not likely lo drift
very far astern even when the busy
season is reached.

Mr. Pool's letter as a whole, parts
of the letter were quoted which
