$2 a Year
On Tho   Lucky  Jack   of  Foplar
Two Feet Of Rioh
White Quartz.
The Formation Is Nov/ Solid, And
The Faulty Ground is
Passed.
Barkloy Crilly, assistant manager of
The Great Northern Mines, Ltd., returned to Ferguson on Friday from
Poplar. He reports tho best piece of
information concerning the Lucky Jack
that we have yet hoard. This is that
the tunnel which extends for over
200 feet has got well undor the mountain, and every foot that is now driven
gains about five feot in depth. For tho
first 175 feet, tho tunnel was driven under a low slopo of tho mountain, and
scarcely any depth was gained, but now
it-is different, and from this time the
property is a good tunnelling proposition; Soon as the tunnel got vertically
under the steep mountain, the broken
faulty formation gavo place to the solid,
' so uow everything is plain sailing, with
a fine lead of quartz sprinkled with galena and impregnated with coarse par
tides of gold, clearly visible to the
naked eye.
The vein is getting richer as depth is
attained, quite contrary toexpeetations,
for oven the purchasers did not hope
that the high valuos .would be found to
be widely diffused throughout the claim.
Many who saw the exceptional richness
at the surface, predicted that when a
few foot ot depth was gained the coarse
gold would disappear. Of course, no
man can see under tho ground, and the
condition!: of one locality cannot be depended upon to occur in anothor place.
IJvon adjoining properties in the same
camp have been found to betotallydilf-
erent, so, whilo an experienced man's
opinion is often valuable, yet such an
opinion is always problematical Conditions found in a particular district
usually appear very similar in all the
claims therein, and whon one is opened
up it is generally good evidence of what
may be expected in others; but each
claim is independent of tho others, aud
if ono would know, ho must dig.
Tho purchasers of tho Lucky Jack estimated that thero was sulllcicnt of the
phenomenally rich ore in sight on the
surface to justify the high flguro paid
for the property, and the chances were
good that the valuable rock would go
deep enough to return a haudsomo profit,
on the investment, after paying development expenses and the cost of putting
in the necessary machinery. Thc property has boon worked steadily, and
considerable depth has boon reached,
showing a largo quantity of rlnh ore.
Whilo tho gold does not occur in chunlts
as it did in places at tho surface, yot
the gold is tlmt ts in quantity, but much
m-"'' evenly disseminated through tho
lead matter.
Sympathizes With Japan.
The English peoplo nro clearly in
sympathy with Japan in tho now almost
inevitable war with Russia. A press
despatch says;���The party of marino
engineers from the Clyde district, engaged by the Japanese government,
sailed for Japan yesterday via St John,
New Brunswick. Another draft of
Scotch engineers left Govan quietly and
unexpectedly for Japan a week ago. A
detachment of 120 British naval pensioners and nayal reserve men and 10
British officers started lor Genoa, Italy,
today, to assist In the navigation of tbe
Japanese warships, Kasaga and Niasin,
purchased of the. Argentine republic.
The railroad station was crowded with
sightseers, who manifested the greatest
enthusiasm. There were repeated
cheers for "gallant little Japan."
The New Year.
The prospects for tho coming year
are of tho brightest for tho mining in
dustry. The preparations of the pasi
twelvemonths augur increased activity In all branches, and that the profluc*
tion will be greater in 1904 than in the
year just closed, thero is no question
whatever. The labor troubles which
characterized a few sections aro happily
settlod, and the full quota of mining
men reported for work, while the number of now properties to enter tho ship-
plug list is greater than ever before,
which assures a year of the greatest
prosperity. The year just passed has
been one of great development, and
vast ore bodies havo beon blocked out,
while heavier plants of machinery have
been installed, and more modern reduction plants have been erected to handle
the products, of all tho mines of tho
West. Tho new equipment of mines
and reduction plants are with a view lo
the greatest possible economy, and
hence, of profit to tho operators. In tho
line of gold production, the outlook was
never better for an increase. Tho recent riso in tho price of silvor gives evidence of permanence, and therefore
heavier produotion, nnd the opening of
properties which have found it impossible to operate under the conditions
that obtained during the past ten years.
The shortage of the supply of copper
coupled with tbo fact that the demand
is greater than the supply, insures tin
increased production of thej'ed metal
at tlie present, if no.t a higher price.
The samo is true of iron, while the zinc
indttstryls yet in its infancy, for whereas that metal was a detriment to miners
a few years back, it is now turned to
the profit sido of the ledger, and the
production is increasing with tho greater demand.���Ores and Metals.
Saved By Being Late.
Messrs. Harry Wright, M.P.P., E.
A. Fraser, M.P.P., and Hon. R. F.
Green, M.P,P. arrived at Victoria on
Saturday to uttcud.to their legislative
duties. Grave fears wero entertained
lost these geotlomon wore drowned
from the unfortunate ferry stoamer
Clallam. It seems they arrived at
Seattle one halfihour too late to catch
the ill-fated steamer on Friday, otherwise some of them would most probably
have been numbered among the unfortunates who were drowned. It was well
for once to havo been late.
Drilled Into Missed Holo.
At Rossland, B. C, on the llth Inst.,
an unfortunate fatality occurred at tho
Wat' Eaglo mino. FrankGoddo, an Ital
san miner, being killed, and Charles
McPhee probably fatally injured.
The men wero working in tho 500 foot,
wost drift with a machino drill, when
thoy drilled into a mlssod holo. An
explosion followed. (Joddo was instantly killed by a small piece of rock which
sank into his bruin botwoon tlio oyos.
Mcl'heo had ono oyo destroyed, and
suffered othor Injuries which uro ex
pected to cause death. The accident
was purely inadvertent, and an inquest
was not doomed necessary.
Stole Daughter's Fortune.
Robbed or nearly .150,000, as It Is al
loged, Carla Irene Laing of Chicago
has been induced to go to Toledo, Ohio,
and sign a document releasing her fa*
thei- from all responsibility for his acts
while her guardian. Former governor
John M. Hamilton has produced evi
denco to this effect in the Probate
Court, where, as MlssLnlng's attarney,
ho had begun suit to secure an accounting fiotn hor father.
The guardian is alleged to have kept
his daughter in ignorance of tho (net-
that she was huiross to 8150,000. Sho
accidentally discovered the facts a few
weeks ago, when twenty-seven years
old, but the fortune is declared to have
disappeared.

A  Great   Many   Casualties.    The
Number of Deaths From Different Causes, Large.
The B. C. Mining Exchange and Investor's Guide, published at .Vancouver, is rapidly gaining a foremost place
in this province. The Christmas edition was a particularly Interesting snd
nicely prepared number. Tiie articles
are well written and tho illustrations
are good.
A3 A Solvent.
A terrible shipwreck occurred on tlio
Sth inst. off Port- Townsend, the S.S.
Clallam having become disabled in
crossing tho straits to Victoria, and
about* 65 passengers Wero drowned.
Tho Clallam is a comparatively new
vessel, and is used as a ferry boat bet-
woen Saaltlo, Wash., aud Victoria, B.
C. On Friday last she left Seattle on
schedule time, having on board over
i0 passengei'B. Shoreachcd Port Town-
send safely and had started, for Victoria, being one hour out and facing it
liorco gale, when her rudder gave way,
and she was unable to stand up against
tlio terrific gale. Thu captain and
crow did everything in their power lo
save the vessel, hut without avail, anil
sho was like a plaything nt the mercy
of the elements. The vessel's plight
was seen from Victoiia, and evory possible effort was made to render her assistance, but thc tugs' were too lato In
reaching the ship, for --ho was too far
gone to stand being cowed to a place of
safety. Many persons who were well
known in tho Kootenays wore among
the drowned. Peoplo in Victoria wlio
had loved ones aboard tlie ill-fated vessel watched the terrible battle with the
elements, but could do nothing.
A Splendid Number.
Zinc-potassium cyanide is an excellent solvent for gold and silver in the
presence of lime or other alkali. Its
presence in the mill solution is more
advantageous than harmful. A mill
solution should, however, contain at
least 1 pound of lime in solution to
overy 0.5 pound of zinc. In order to be
sure that tlie requisite amount of lime
is present, the mill solution should be
tirated with and without the addition
of limo water, and if any difference bo
observed, limo should be added until a
constant reading is obtained.���Pacific

Canada Growing.
Tho following is what Bradstreet's
has to say of tho progress and development of Canada in 1003:
Canada lias completed tho most successful yoar In her history. Trade
from the lirst day of 1003 to tho last
day of the yoar has been as steady ami
uninterrupted as it has been unprecedented, Tho increase iu the foreign
commerce of tho country and tho expansion in its internal trade are equally
striking. Salos of domestic und imported goods of all description have increased onormously. Not only bas tho
value of business Increased, but profits
havo been generally bettor than in previous years. Tho insolvency record has
been comparatively light, considering
the increaso in general business, and
the smaller number ol bankrupt stocks
offering in iho markets helped to koop
manufacturing and morcantile trade in
it Bound, healthy condition, whilo tlio
fact that the couBumplton In muny sta-
|ile lines of manufacture has overtaken
productive capacity, has, by preventing
overproduction, contributed 'handsomely to tho same end. The material
wealth of tho country :11s been largely
added to, as shown bj tho Increase In
tho public deposits 111 tho bunks, and
other financial Institutions, by tho extension in old linos of business and the
establishment of now concerns, the
large Investments made In industries
connected with the development of tho
vast natural resources of the Dominion,
and lastly, by the addition to the population of the country of 125,000 to 150,-
000 first-class settlers.
Being Investigated.
An investigation is in progress into
tho cause of tho unusual loss of life at
tho Iroquls thoatro. Much evidence
has beon adduced of rather a startling
nature. It lias been discovered that
many exits were closed and bolted when
tho tire took placo, and further that the
employees of the thoatro never received
any instruction as to how to proceed in
case of lire. This is believed to show
criminal liability on tho part of the
management, and there Is little doubt
they will be made to suffer for their
negligence.
To Renew Hostilities.
With tliere-assoir.blingof tho British
Columbia Legislature, the opposition
may be expected to renew their hostility toward the McBride government.
At any rate, members of the opposition
have been quito free in asserting that
thoy will do thoir utmost to embarrass
tho government by attack at every
available point. Tha avowed excuse
for thc liberal members' antipathy is
tho obnoxious, to tlieir minds, assessment act. which was passed before tho
recess. They claim, and it is claimed
also by many newspapers throughout
tho country, that tho tax will ontail
much hardship among the rank und filo
of tho taxpayers, and that it is a most
iniquitous piece of legislation. In this
article we have not tlie space or time
to enter into a minute criticism of its
merits or demerits, but will say that
more money had to be obtained from
somewhere to meet necessary current
expenses, and to make good a deficiency
which was created through no fault of
the present administration.
Tlie Father of Fergusou.
David Ferguson, original locator of
this town, and still part owner, who
has beon spending tho early part of the
winter ut Victoiia with his brother Andrew, has mysteriously disappeared.
His brother has offered the unusually
high reward of Sl.1'00 for Information
of his whereabouts, dead or alive.
Thoro havo been several persons spirited away from Victoria and Vancouver
during the past twulvo months, and
Mr. Ferguson, having boon known to
always havo plonty of money, may have
been treacherously dealfk with. We
trust, howovor, thut tho fears may
prove groundless.
"Dave" Ferguson was distinctly 11
pioneer ol the Lardeau, and as such ao
quired u large number of mining interests, besides the townsite that tours his
nnuio. Tho Triuno mine belonged to
ho and his brothers, and was sold by
them for $100,000, and they stall own
othor good property. Tho valuo of
Dave's personal property would bo over
$100,000. He was always a splendid
money maker; anything that he touched
seemed to prosper, tt is said, J im.Fer-
guson.
It is believed that Davo never knew
an enemy. ITe was kind and froe with
evorybody, and consequently was widely known and woll liked.
A despatch from Paris dated Jan. S,
{through tho associated pross, says it is
learnedthatintheoplnionofthe French
government, there is sliii a chance o'f
avoiding a conflict between Russia and
Japan, as a result of a concession mado
by Russia in her last nolo. The despatches which havocc-mo to Paris Irom
all quarters today have been must pessimistic, and the hopefulness of tiie
government is in strong contrast witb
the general opinion of thesllghtchauco
ol avoiding a conflict.
It appears that Russia's concession
relates to the preponderance ofthe interests of Japan in Korea. This has
been tho crux of tho question between
tlie two Powers \\\i to the present mo-
monient. Just how far the concession
goes it is impossible to learn, but in its
effect in Tokio, according to the information obtained, it lias beon more satis- '
factory than the press despatches show,
and it is believed negotiations will continuo.
In connection with Russia's concession, a curious and at the samo timo
authoritative story is told regarding
the causo of tho development of the
present situation. It uppears that a
misunderstanding occurred between
viceroy Al-.'xicff and the Russian government, and that the note antedating
the ono just submitted did uot contain
tho recognition of Japanese preponderating Influence in any part of Korea, sis
Russia and the whole world believed.
Thc latest note of Russia clears up the.
situation, but whether il recognizes Japan's preponderating interests in all
Korea is not kuown now.
The French government donies tho
sensational reports to the effect that it
has ordered 11 division of warships and
troops to China. Only one French ship
is under instructions to proceed to tho
far Fast.
Recognizing the situation as dangerous, there is talk in ollieial and diplomatic circles of the advisability of a
separate or joint mediation by tho
powers who desire peace in the far
Fast. It is said that this could properly bo done in accordance with Tho
Hague Convention, without giving offense either to Russia or Japan. The
scll.i-ollioial Temps expresses tlio view
prevailing by calling attention to tlio
Tact that Great Britain, Prance, tho
United States, nndGi rmany, nroall interest,',] in tlie maintenance of peace,
urging that lo prevent efforts at friendly intervention, by saying that one
power or tho other would become ol-
fended, is contrary to tho interests of
tho goveininciits.-aiid of humanity,
A later dispatch says that M. Daesh-
eor, first secretary ol the French embassy, in an interview in London'said
that presont 'arrangements between
Franco and Great Hri.ain wero such
thut it would bo impossible to disturb
them. He said it was not likely that
France would Interfere, even if Korea
and China joined Japan.

WHERE'S THE EVIDENCE?
Out leading editorial in the Dec.
25th number of the Eagle, dealing
with a new discovery on the Swede
group nt Poplar, has been made the
.subject of unjust criticism in the
editorial columns of the B. C. Mining Record. The criticism we believe, to have been written by Mr.
It. Jacobs, who has been selected to
administer chatisement to the Eagle
beevse of his familiarity (?) with
free gold mining properties elsewhere whose surface showings were
enormously rich, and he was therefore in a position to give an authoritative opinion us ��� to whether the
leads at Poplar would prove to contain pay ore below the surface or
not. Referring to our own article,
we feel there was nothing contained
therein that wus not consistent with
fact. Of course wo had not seen
tlie newly found lend on lhe Swede
property, hut we had confidence in
the judgment ofthe party who had
seen it and wlio gave us our information; and from subsequent advice
we feci that our remarks were
justified.
Further, we are in possession of
facts, of which Mr. Jacobs is not
cognizant. Whose opinion, then,
should be ,the more reliable ? Mr.
Jacobs has not brought lorward one
single argument to prove that our
statements were in nny way exaggerated. He merely makes the
bald assertion to lhat effect, and
then proceeds to compare the Poplar properties, of which he knows
nothing, with properties in other
districts, of whicli his article shows
him to possess a very limited knowledge. Mr. Jacobs' hair may have
turned grey with the cares of editing a newspaper, but that is no argument. There nre no grounds for
comparison as between the Lardeau
gold belt and any oilier district, for
thc Pbplar-CambOrne belt stands
alone, and as far us we know,
without a peer in B.C.
Now wc would ask this " scribe "
of the Mining Record, who seems to
be much of an cgolist, what lie
knows about the Poplar claims ?
Having lived nnd edited a newspaper in the boundary, wo would
RSk : What does lie know about the
"Providence" of Greenwood? What
does he know about the Cariboo and
Waterloo in camp McKinney, the
Poorirmn and Athabasca in Nelson
camp, nnd tho Wilcox and Golden
Cup in Ymir? Does he remember
the surface showings on these properties, and are they not successful
mining propositions today ?
With reference to the Golden
Cache, the editor of the Mining Record, Mr. Jacobs, or any one who
���is familiar with gold quartz should
know that the surface showings
were very dissimilar, and there never
were specimens taken from this property that were at all on a par with
those taken from the I.ticky Jack.
In fact thc Golden Cache never had
a regular vein, in place, and most
likely had the parent vein been found,
thc mine would have been a rich
one today.
Nothing can possibly do a camp
more injury than just such ill-advised
comments by a journal published in
the same province, where one is led
to believe that the writer bas investigated his subject and knows what
he is talking about.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
A general election would appear
to be near at hand, .by indications
apparent on every side. The Liberals are taking great pains to have it
reported about that another session
of the house, as now constituted,
will be held in February. This is
thought in most quarters to be but
a ruse ot the government to catch
the opposition napping and spring
th? election upon the country suddenly. However, both parties are
very active in preparation for an
election, and candidates are being
chosen fotNiearly every constituency
from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The contest promises to be a warm
one, for the tariff question will be
threshed out as never before.
The Japanese government are
finding it very convenient to purchase large quantities ol war supplies in Canada, and particularly of
Vancouver and Victoria wholesale
merchants, The orders are principally lor flour, army biscuits and
canned meats. They are very anxious also to purchase 3,000 hardy
Canadian horses, and their buyer is
already in this country accompanied
by a veterinary surgeon. The chief
purchase station will be at Calgary,
Alberta. This opens a new channel
for the sale of Canadian horses, and
we think'it most important for the
Canadian northwest.
J. J. Hill lis becoming very much
alarmed at the emigration of farmers from the Western United States
to the North West Territories. He
even goes so far, in the hope of
checking the tide of emigration, as
to grossly misrepresent conditions
that he knows to exist in the Canadian west, Mi*. Hill is a good man
for the country that he lives in, but
he is always first for J. ). Hill and
the Great Northern system.
