Pool* Young Syndicate,
Which   Resulted    in   Death   of
J. J, Colo.
First. The burgher forces In the
field will forthwith lay down their arras
and hand over all their guns, rifles and
munitions of war in their possession or
under their control and desist from

and will allow the notes issued under
the law ot 1000 of the South African
republic, and all receipts given by the
ollicers in the field of tho lato republics,
It Is the Eagle's pleasant duty this
week to chronicle two more important
mining deals, in some respects the
most significant that have yet taken
place in the Lardeau and Fish Creek
oamps, namely the sale for spot cash of
one of the leading free gold properties
of tbe district and the bonding by the
same parties of an adjoining group,
with a big cash payment down. The
properties in question aro the famous
groups on Lexington mountain known
as the Oyster and Rossland groups and
the purchasers are���as might have
been expected, for they don't let any ol
the good things slip through their
fingers���Messrs. Pool and Young. It
is only a couple of months since .ho
Eagle was called on to record the sale
to these two fortunate gentlemen, of
the leading silver mine of the district,
the Silver Cup and Sunshine. Last
summer they acquired the leading gold
property of the Lardeau���the Lade
group of six claims up the south fork.
Now they have secured twoof the great
free milling gold groups of Fish river,
a district which has been astonishing
mining men throughout tne province
during tbe past two years by its phenomenal free gold values and the enormous strength of its ledges.
Tbe purchase price has npt been
made public, but it is understood to be
in ths neighborhood of $150,000. This
is a good bit of money aud it will help
the district greatly this season as a
great deal of it will go into development work on other claims. Snug little fortunes were made by several par-
ftmilauotl ou Pugo Thru,
ties as a result of the deal, the owners
of the Oyster being Jno. Ennest, B. B,
St.arky, R. G. McLeod and Mrs. Wm.
Allen of Comaplix, and of tho Rossland, J. J. Foley, CoryMenhonnlck and
others. The Oyster group consists of
the Oyster, Criterion, Gold Bug and
Mascot, and the Rossland group contains tho Rossland, Imperial and Balfour claims. These properties join the
Eva group on two sides and all the Eva
ledges run into them. The present
Eva workings are blit a short distance
from tho Oyster line. They are down
about 400 feet where rich oro has beon
encountered in great quantity. The
Eva is now beyond all doubt a mine and
a very rich one. Average assays of
free gold at the 400-foot level run from
fifteen to forty dollars a ton. Tbis is
the richest free milling gold ore in B.
C. and when it Is remembered thut the
ledges, of which thore are a number,
are from fivo to twenty feet in width it
will be seen how big tbe proposition Is.
Over 30 assays made by A. H. Holdich, S. Shannon and McLcIIun from the
Oyster, Rossland and Criterlob, run
from $23 to $26 to the ton in gold, with
a little galena and zinc blend. Besides
the several well defined gold lends on
tbe two groups there Is a strong ledge
of galena, which has been exposed for
200 feet and gives average silver and
lead values besides about $20 in gold.
This galena deposit alone will make a
mine. A large amount of work has al
ready been done on the Criterion and
Rossland including two shafts of 30 and
60 feet, sevorul open cuts and considerable lead stripping. One average sample taken across twenty feet of lodge
mutter in au open cut on the Criterion
givos $23.00 in gold. There is too a
rich band, or paystreak, in the ledge
showing free gold plentifully which was
not included In samples for tbo above
While Mr. Pool Is well versed in free
gold mining in Colorado, Idaho, California and other gold camps in the
Western States, he says ho has never
seen a finer showing than on the Eva,
Oyster, Camborne and Goldfinch groups
und is of opinion that Fish creek camp
in the Lardeau will prove another Cripple Creek. Poople laughed when he
said tho Lardeau would be a great silver camp, but it has become the richest
in the province and he predicts it will
in the near future bo one of the greatest gold camps In the world.
It is understood that these properties
will be incorporated with the Ophir-
Lade, tbe capital of that syndicate being increased for tbe purpose. Operations commenced Tuesday on a large
scale to open up the properties, Messrs
J. and V. Lade, R. Gunn and J. Otto
having left Ferguson Monday with a
wagon load of supplies. B. Crilly left
tbe followiugday. A tramway will be
built at once and a ten-stamp mill will
bo installed before the end of the
month. Thus it will be seen tbat tbe
Ophir-Lade people don't propose to lose
any time talking about their latest
acquisition, but will proceed ut once,
with their characteristic energy, to
prove what they have got, and in the
near future they will bo turning out
gold bricks of tho genuine stuff.
Principal among the shareholders in
the Ophir-Lade syndicate aro W. B.
Pool, J. J. Young, member of N. W.
T. legislature for East Calgary, Messrs.
Kirby and Walker of London, Eng.,
F. W. Godsol and W. F. Cochrane, two
of the largest cattle ranchers in
Alberta. Since tbo now deal a considerable amount of stock of tbe Ophir-
Lade has been applied for by local men.
Nels Demars, an Old Man 78 Years
of Age, Has His Skull
Accident Through  Cage Getting Ont of
Engineer. Control.
What might have been a serious accident occurred at the Niokle Plate mine
at Rossland last week whon eight men
fell 200 feet and the miraculous part of
the accident is that no one was Killed,
one escaping with u hand cut. It would
seem that the men were just going off
shift and eight miners wero being
lowered from the surface to the 800-foot
level, the lowest in the mine. While
on their way down in the cage, by some
means which are not exactly known,
got off the control of the engineer and
fell from the 000-foot level to the 800-
foot level, a fall of 200 feet.
The engineer applied all the brakes
that he could, and though ineffectual,
tbey. together with the tension of the
wire cable were sufficient to break tho
awful fall to the extent that the men
escaped Immediate and sudden death.
As It is nothing with the exception of
tbo cage Itself appears to have been
Ilcllcf for the Fertile Sufferer..
The Rossland Miners' Union has been
informed that there are about 50 destitute families In Pernio in consequence
of the disaster, and are sending relief
direct to the secretary of the Miners'
Union there in whoso hands has already
been placed the munillcient sum of
$3,000 by the Denver convention. The
funds are disposed of iu this particular
way as tho Fernie secretary has necessarily a closer acquaintance with the
families concerned than can any other
perwn,  p''
Elmore Proce***, of Concentration of Orei.
The new Elmore process of oil cou?
centrution of ores appears, says tbe
Colonist, judging from recent numerous
tests, to promise great things.
Tests mado on the low-grade ore of
one of the Rossland mines gave the following results: Tho concentrates by
the oil process contained 0.08 per cent,
ol copper, while concentration by
water gave only 2.0 per cent., the silver
and gold contents being proportionately
higher and the tailings showing much
higher recovery in the case of the oil
than by the water concentration.
Preliminary tests by this process of
ore from the Snowshoo mine, Boundary
districts, bave also proved satisfactory,
and lt Is very probable tbat several Elmore plants will ere long bo in operation In the low-grade camps of tho
Cariboo Mining.
Plenty of water, tho hydraulic miners' greatest comfort, and everything
going well describes thc situation in
Cariboo to-day.
Of all the hydraulic claims that
worked last year only ono of the_ra, the
San Juan is not working this season.
Tho claim Ah Quay near Stanley is
working with a larger crow than last
year, tho results justifying an increase
in the outlayand no doubt thero will be
an increase in tbe yield of gold. Burns
creek hydraulic has prospects of
greater results than last year and they
.were thon very satisfactory.

A light took place fivo miles below
Nakusp, Wednesday night last on the
bench, resulting in tho death of .1. .1.
Cole and Nels Demurs having his skull
fractured, tho latter being 78 years of
age, and an old pioneer on the Columbia river, coming here in the sixties.
J. ,T. Cole, W, H. Rose and Nels De-
mars, the last two being partners, thc
former who owned a ranch ten miles
from Nakusp, had been drinking in
town during the afternoon. They all
left in a boat for Rose's ranch, appar
ently good friends. Rose returned to
town late muking u statement that his
friends had met with foul play on the
beach. Four citizens went out with
him and found thc most horrible scene
awaiting them. J. J. Cole was dead,
bis jaw being broken by a blow of some
kind. Demars had bis face completely
covered with blourt, his skull fractured
also other wounds. The place bore evidence of having been the scene of u
severe struggle somo hours previous.
Demurs and Rose were brought back to
town. Rose was arrested, tbe former
being unconscious until noon. Thursday when he regained consciousness be
made the statement that after leaving
Nakusp tbey had a quarrel in the boat
resulting in their taking tbo boat to
sboro to settle the matter.
Demurs remembers being struck witb
something in the bands of Rose, bill
after that he remembers nothing. Demars has made a written statement of
all the facts he is aware of. Dr. Cross
of Revelstoke was wired for and arrived
on tbe noon steamer. Ho ut once went
to the scone of the fight, and brought
the body of Cole to town . The coroner held nn inquest und found Henry
H. Rose guilty of tho death of J. J.
Cole. The prisoner was tuken to the
Revolstoko goal lust Friday, awaiting
instructions from tho attorncy-generul.
Nels Demurs will be removed to Kamloops to undergo un operntion on hi-

FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1002.
lt is a matter of regret that the
B- C. government should show such
a penurious spirit in the treatment,
or lack of treatment, of the wagon
toad from Thomson's  Landing  to
Trout Lake and Ferguson. It takes
five long hours of steady driving for
the   stage,   with   four   good-sized
horses, and also other light rigs, to
make the drive and  the distance is
only sixteen  miles.    Serious inconvenience and delay is caused daily
by this gross carelessness or stinginess on the part of the  lands  and
public works department at Victoria.
The Eagle firmly  believes that the
Lardeau does not get its just rights
in respect of appropriation for roads
and trails.   Comparatively judging
the  Lardeau   coughs  up yearly a
very   considerable   portion  of   the
revenue of the province and if proportionate    encouragement     were
given in the way of building and
keeping in repair trails and  roads,
the district  would soon treble the
revenue now paid.    There are muny
high  grade   properties   ready and
anxious to ship, but  are prevented
by  a lack  of roads.    Most of the
parties owning these mining  properties would contribute largely out
of their own pockets it the government vtiMld do  by the district what
is rigl#.    1 he  Eagle believes that
other   districts   have   been    more
favored and  sometimes when they
were not entitled to as liberal treatment  as this.    The fault  may  lie
with the general  road superintendent, but the Eagle believes  it lies
with   the   department.    What  the
Trout Lake wagon  road requires is
to have the holes, ruts and  rocks
Tilled in and removed and in a few
places the grade could ne materially
lessened by a small outlay.    Now it
is impossible to make good time on
account of the wagon wheels encountering a water hole or deep rut
every few yards, which  if  driven
over  quickly would endanger the
life of passengers.    It is hoped that
this matter will receive attention for
a large number of mining men are
expected to visit the camp in  July.
It has often   been remarked that
when the average mining man starts
out to visit a camp much depends
tin how  he feels on arriving at his
destination.   If he is dead tired and
hungry and his limbs strained and
body shaken, as it were in a dice
box, the camp and everything in it
are likely to look decidedly blue to
his eyes and he will be prone to
think more favorably of retracing
his steps  than ot,ascending  the
mountains to examine a c|aini..  Let
its therefore have the. main thoroughfare of  the district  kept  in
passably good repair;
The Eagle takes pleasure in being
able to congratulate the Ophir-Lade
people on acquiring what is likely to
develop into   a great free milling
gold mine.   There is no mine so
profitable and so easily worked and
so free trom trouble and trials which
a miner may have to contend with
as a good stamp mill proposition,
which can turn out gold bullion and
be   independent  of   Imelters  and
transportation companies.   Taking
the history of  all the mines that
have paid large dividends, we find
that many of the largest dividend
payers have been free milling gold
propositions and generally the ore
was very low grade, but the ore occurred in large bodies which enabled
it to be mined and treated cheaply.
The gold ledges on Fish creek are
also large and on top ot this they
are excessively rich, its lowest grade
tested by Messrs. Pool and Young
going much higher than the great
world   renowned   Homestake  and
Treadweil mines.   Thus it will be
seen how bright are the prospects
of the Fish creek mines becoming
great dividend payers and this camp
reaping the benefits to be derived
Irom   these   important operations.

known  gold mines of the United
States their authorized capital stock

Oeueroiis to tho Burghon.
There is little diversity of opinion as
to the generous character of the peace
terms offered the conquered burghers.
A few are complaining that the concessions are too great, but the majority
of people In Great Britain and throughout the world will agree that handsome
treatment has been accorded tho fallen
foe. This will prove the wisest sort of
statesmanship, for just and kindly consideration now will have much to do
with the easy settlement of the problems tbat must necessarily arise while
a once independent people are being
absorbed into a new sovereignty.
Tho terms, as read lu the commons,
show that it is no harsh welcome that
Is to be extended to the Transvaal people. All Burghers outside of the
Transvaal and of the Orange R(ver
Colony are to be brought back and are
not to be deprived of their personal
liberty and property. No civil or
criminal actions, are to be taken against
them; the uso of the Dutch language is
not interdicted; the burghers may
carry arms for their own protection,
and representative institutions leading
up to self government are to be introduced at the earliest date possible. No
special tax is to be imposed to meet the
expenses ot tho war, and financial aid
is to bo given by tho government for
the purpose of establishing the farmers
once more in their homes.
Tbis shows a disposition to givo the
burghers all the rights, privileges and
comforts of British citizens. An independent republic is lost, but it Is not
improbable that tho Boers will find
that as free citizens of a self governing
colony they tire enjoying more real Independence than was allowed them
under the thrifty oligarchy of Kruger.
Thoy will probably have an honest
government, and will be free from the
impositions and exactions that were
for years squeezing tbe people and their
Industries for tho benefit of the president and his favorites. Tbe people will
not be handicapped by government
monopolies and official extortion, and
under a more enlightened rule, witb
better educational advantages, greater
commercial activity and actually more
liberty than they havo ever had before,
will enjoy greater prosperity and contentment than the so-called republic
offered them.
