RUBY OWNER'S ClAIM TO THE
FAMOUS LOCATION.
The sittings ot the supreme court,
with Mr. Justice Martin presiding,
were resumed Saturday morning, and
the trial ot the Poplar adverse action
of Rutherford vs. Morgan' and Pool
occupied the entire day. When the
oourt arose at 6:10 the easo was qnly
partly concluded, and it is expected
that' at least it wouldsoccupy all of
Monday, and possibly part of Tuesday.
Notwithstanding that it was Saturday
and a hot close afternoon, the court sat
,'rom iC'a.m. to 6.10 p.m., tho learned
>dgo remarking that the assize day at
Barkerville had been advanced a day
*.ud that he must bo there by Monday
week, consequently the Nelson sittings
*.-3U6t bo terminated as speedily as
possible.
Contrary to general expectations,
no judgments were delivered during
the day, nor was thore any ollieial intimation when they would be given.
Aftor live challenges were made the
following jurymen were selected in the
Rutherford vs. Morgan et al trial: W.
E. Ellis, foreman, Thomas Morley, W.
G. Brown, W. H. Leo, A. H. Clements,
W. W. Bradley, P. B. Leys, nnd Geo.
E. McLaughlin.
E. V. Bodwoll, K.C., appeared for
tho plaintiff, and with him P. E. Wil.
son. -vf. A. Macdonnld, and with him
Robert Hodge for the defendant.
Thu plaintiff's case, proving tho
location of tbo Edith claim, which was
not recorded, and the subsequent location of tho ground by the Ruby Fraction, under which the plaintiff now
claims the ground covered by thc
famous Lucky Jack claim, was partially
concluded during the afternoon, and
caso (or tho defence was opened up.
A order was mado directing the production In court ol the posts used in
staking tbe Edith claim. As these are
all trees cut and trimmed tliey will
have to be cut down and put in as exhibits. Both plaintiff nnd defendants
produced largo photographs of the
ground, showing location posts In position, nnd a map showing tho ground
covered.
On Monday tho original stakes wore
produced In court, and able speeches
for both sides were given. The eas.
was practically concluded, although
no vordlct was given whon the court
rose.
On Tuesday tho 'companion ease,
that of Hanna vs, Morgan aud Pool
was proceeding before a new jury,
whon tho jury of tbo preceding caso
returned with thoir verdict, which
thoy wero Instructed not to divulge, and
wore discharged. In tho second case,
both sldos retained tlio same legal representatives, and the whole of Tuesday and part of Wednesday was devoted to the hearing. (Ip to thu time
of going to press no remits had
reached hero, but a rumor hus It that
a telegram has been received at Poplar
containing news of a vordlct. for tbe
defendants In the first mentioned case,

The Provincial Mineralogist in
his report to the Minister of Mines
has some very interesting data of
the famous Triune mire, and as the
claim is situate almost at our doors
we naturally are proud of the fact,
and our efforts to induce others to
share our pardonable pride is justifiable. The development of the
Triune is proceeding apace. Large
quantities of stores are daily being
sent from the town to the mine in
readiness for the busy season
now upon us, and a large staff of
men with anxious hearts and eager
eyes will soon be participators in a
big fat pay-roll. To those who are
interested in the town ot Ferguson
the following will be interesting,
while to the average reader it
should prove instructive.
The Triune mineral claim is situated on a small tributary oi the
South Fork of Lardeau creek and
about a mile to the south-east of
the Silver Cup, hut in an adjoining
basin. The property is at present
held by the Metropolitan Gold and
Silver Mining Co., of which Mr.
Battey is executive manager at Ferguson, with an office on Main St.,
and the mining operations-for 1904
are under the superintendence of
Mr. A. Dodds. The claim is
reached from Ferguson by a wagon-
road to 8-Mile on the South Fork
road, from which point a sleigh
road has been made up to the basin,
at the head of which the property is
situated. The workings are located
in the high, steep ridge which forms
the head of the basin and are at an
altitude of from 8,200 to 8,500 feet
above the sea, or about 5,000 feet
above the town of Ferguson. The
distance Irom Ferguson to the foot
of the sleigh road is estimated as
five   miles.     The   sleigh   road is
Another Rich Strike.
A. J. Gordon struck a very rich vein
nf over three feot of carbonates yesterday while at work on the Raven. It
carries very high values ln gold and
silver. The claim where tha strike
was made Is within a mile and a half
nf the mill at 5-Mile. Full particulars
will be given ln our next issue.
Roosevelt was nominated by the Ro*
publican party of tbe United Statos at
the Chicago convention on June 22rd,
amidst scenes of the wildest excitement.
Senator Fairbanks, wbo two years ago
was hardly thought of ns a factor In
political life, wae nominated ylco,
about four miles long and has a
regular grade, but is narrow and
not at present suited for a wagon ;
it ends at the lower terminal of the
aerial tramway, at timber line,
at which point a trail almost
two miles long rises by switchbacks up the side of and
around the basin, for about ".,000
feet vertical, to the cabin and
tunnel. A telephone line connects
the cabin with Ferguson. The
mine, from ils situation at an elevation of 8,500 feet on a steep biui"
and above timber line has many
natural obstacles which would have
made a low-grade ore unworkable,
but the " preliminary operations
yielded ore of so high a grade as to
admit of its being mined and shipped at a good profit. In 1903 the
property shipped 113 tons of ore
which yielded about $128 per ton,
the values being chiefly gold and
silver."
I The bluff in which the mine is1
situated rises at this point at an
angle of approximately 50 deg.,1
rendering it nearly impossible to
ascend without the aid of ropes, but;
enabling the ore body to be reached j
by short, cross-cut tunnels (rom the
hillside. The upper outcrop of the <
deposit was found to be on the edge
of and possibly underlying a permanent glacier. This outcrop was
so situated as to be very difficult of
access, and the ore body was con.
sequently attacked by tunnels.
The lower tunnel is approximately 216 feet lower than the outcrop,
and is 283 feet long, being rather
winding in its course, but having a
general direction of S. 75 deg.
(Mag). At no feet in, a cross cut
had been run off to the left lor
about 50 feet, and at 190 feet in
from the tunnel mouth there is a
raise nearly straight 'and following
the dip of the ore* body, which
averages about Go de*;*. This raise
connects the upper tunnel, about
105 Ieet higher up, and is continued
to the outcrop some ioj teet above
his tunnel. The upper tunnel is
about 75 feet long from the surface
to the point of intersection, wjth the
raise, and is continued past the latter for some to feet as a drift. Some
200 to 250 feet vertically lower
down the hill a new tunnel is being
run in, and is intended to reach the
ore body at that level. To enable
this, tunnel being started, a small
bench had been cut in the hillside,
and on this a small bunk-house had
been built against the side ol the
hill, designed in such a manner as
to " shed " a snowslidc.
The ore body as developed in the
workings above the lower tunnel,
consists of an ore chute which will
average about /.o.to 50 feet long
by four to five feet wide, with a developed d-jptl. r.f about :oo feet,
that is to say to the tunnel level,
the c;e still appearing at this level.
Above the upper tunnel the rich ore
chute has been stoped out, apparently as far as the drifts extend, but
on the two upper drifts to the left
some further galena ore was being
mined, and the ore body may be
found to extend in that direction,
although not so developed in the
tunnels.
The following assays were obtained on samples taken from various points in the mine by an examining engineer :���

GOLD IN THIBET.
The statement that the British are
Invading Thibet becauso of tho exist-
onee there of great virgin gold fields
would seem to he at least partially
borne out by the general reports in the
surrounding coijntries. Tho Ijppaleso
havo a saying th,nt thero Is ��]�����'��, gold*
than gunpowder In Thibet, and certain travellers have assorted thut
there Is, us it matter of fact, a.vast
quantity of untouched gold In tho south
east coi'tuT of the country, and wo
have been regaled with stories of how
shepherds, watching their Hocks, often
sit down for a spare hour or so to wash
gold from the nearest stream. It Ib
assertod that gold Is extensively employed In the manufacture of domestic
utensils for the uso of heads of monasteries. But tho Thibetans will not dig
for it, being afraid of tho anger of the
demons, who they believe reside in the
bowels of tho earth.

FRIDAY.   JULY   1,   1004.
Dominion Day I This is the
day of the yenr on which the man
v. Iio is too slow to come in out ol
lhe rain starts out to return his
New Year calls, chortling Christmas
carols. But to the live, energetic
rustler its advent has been fixed for
a resumation of protacted labor on
his claim. With pack at back he
starts out on his journey across
valley and hill, probing here, delv-
ving there, until his life of toil is
rewarded, and he retires from active
service, and watches others pursue
" the even tenour of their way."
Not one per cent of the Lardeau
has been prospected, and where-
cve:* the pioneer has struck his
pick, Mother Harth reveals her
hidden wealth. Our hills are
now in their summer clothing, and
prospectors are setting out in great
numbers. What a compliment to
us that they " cut and come again I "
What a country for the prospector I
We shall be prepared for any sensation likely to accrue from their
researches���and may we be thereto

Says lhe Medicine Hat Times :
" When the natural gas was first
discovered here the Kootenay mines
seriously considered .tne question of
establishing smelters here for treating low-grade ores, but the gas was
then a doubtful quantity. Now it
is a different matter. Medicine
Hat is the very best distributing
point from v.hieh to reach the
Kootenays, and we hope to see the
negotiations (or putting smelters
here re-opened."
Medicine Hat is certainly the
proud possessor of a proporty or
element which ;will place that go-
ahead city on the road to prosperity.
The recent experimenting and subsequent development go to prove
that as a means of providing a cheap
fuel and power, natural gas is away
head of all other elements. As far
as the notion of placing smelters
there is concerned, wa here in the
Lardeau can show them a trick re
a cheaper driving power, but as there
are many mines in the Kootenays
who ot necessity are compelled to
ship their ores a greater distance
than Medicine Hat���which is on the
main line and at the junction of the
Crow's Nest division���there is something in that notion. Natural gas
in that "gassy" little city is there in
abundance, and the writer knows
whereof he speaks, and points to the
fact of his having run a 3^2-h.p.
engine there all day for 5 cents.

Learn that there are lots of Triune's
around Ferguson awaiting your
attention. Last year the Metro
politan Gold and Silver Mining Co.
who (.were, and are, the owners of
(he Triune overcame many obstacles
(0 get al the sacking ores of that
mountain. The mine, Irom its situation at an elevation of 8,500 feet
on a steep bluff and above timber
line, has many serious, natural obstacles to overcome, but the preliminary operations yielded ore ol
so high a grade as to admit of its
being mined and shipped at a splendid profit. During last summer
the properly shipped 113 Ions of
. re, which yielded about $t2ii per
ton, chiefly gold and silver.
It is difficult for the man on the
street to realize thc vast opportun-

It has been proved by (acts and

The whole burden of carping
criticism being doled out to the
Government in connection with the
I..1st Kootenay oil and coal lands
seems to be that they are accepting

So far only two prospectors have
taken advantage of the olTer made by
���Mr, Keen some weeks ago to bear all
-.he expense of freight and treatment
on 100-pound samples of sohlst sent to
be tested by the Hondryx process in
Spokane. A glance at the extract
from Professor Kemp's book, appearing
in tbe first column of this page, will
-how the importance of having a
thorough test of th3 schists of this district. There is no doubt but that the
schists carry gold values, but whether
in.paying quantities or not has yot to
be determined. For each sample of 200
pounds the cost of freight and treatment will amount to about 120. This
expense Mr. Keen has kindly offered to
bear, so the claim owners should do

it is almost nip and tuck,'there is always a warm spot in the hearts of
the people.
