THE SWEDE
GROUP SOL
Excitement Still Continues at Poplar Creek-Tie Latest Strike
on the Swede Property
Is a Stunner.
Messrs. I'ool and Young returned
from Poplar creek on Saturday with
tbo news that another of the three
great properties there bad been acquired by capitalists at a big figure.
As to whom tlie capitalists wore and
the amount of the purcliaso price paid
thoy wero somewhat reticent, but subsequent events lent color to the rumor
that they and their syndicate knew
just a little more about the deal-than
anybody else.
Since tho start of tho Poplar creek
boom the ��wedo group, so called locally bpcauso "it was discovered and
loeated.by threo Swedes, Henry Mag-
nuson, Eric'Btrand and Ben Lawson,
has run the Lucky Jack a closo second.
Last week, however, a sensational discovery was made which -places the
Swede group away and boyond any
othor property in the new gold fields,
and shows it to be bigger, and richer
than even the famous Lucky Jack.
The specimens which Messrs. Pool
and Young brought in with them created tho greatest sensation over seen
in Trout Lako and Ferguson. One
piece, shaped somewhat like tho Egyptian Sphinx, and weighing about five
pounds, is so hoavv for its size that it
is estimated to contain from two to
two and a half pounds of gold. At $20
an ounco this would mean that tho
specimen contains nearly $000 worth of
the precious metal. Other piecos,
though smaller, wore almost as heavily laden witli gold.   Old gold miners
pronounced the specimen tho richest
they had seen in thirty years experience.
It is said that tho peoplo of Poplar
eroek found it difficult to boliuvc that
local men had secured tho Swedes'
property, as BOmo of tlio biggest operators from Rossland, Spokane and the
West had tried in vain to mako a deal
with the Swedes, and had been turned
down. Tho news of the salo was, however, hailed with great satisfaction.
It is looked on as insuring tho future of
tho camp and hits ereatod an Increased
confidence among hotel men, storekeepers and proporty owners.
Tho Swede group is a continuation
of tho Lucky Jack lodges, lying about
a milo higher up tho mountain and
having excellent tunnol sites. Tho
two groups can be workod in conjunction, with a tramway to carry tho ore
down to the stamp mill which will
likely bo located in tho valley immediately below the big showing on thn
Lucky Jack.
Hearing a report that tho Swede
proporty will bo consolidated witli tho
Lucky Jack and several other free milling claims, the Eaole asked Mr. Pool
if ho wns prepared to confirm or deny
tho report or give particulars. Ho admitted that thore might bo something
in it but said their plans were not sulll-
cicntly matured to make public at this
stage. Ho atlded, however: "Look
out for something big in a fow days.
This is only the beginning."
AE-F.OWHEAD NOTES.
A representative ofthe Eaole was
in Arrowhead Saturday last and found
the place transformed into a place of
considerable activity. Ou the peninsula opposite J. J. Foley's hotel, Mr.
Thoo. Ludgate ot Deudmun's island
fame, is building ono of tho bost lumber mills in tlie interior ot 13. C..which
will have a capacity of about 150,000
feet for 2*i hours. This mill will bo

including band saws, etc. Tho company, whioh is styled Tho Big Bend
Lumber Co., havo extensive limits and

What miners in tho so-called desert
regions of Kern, Inyo, Riverside, San
Bernardino and San Diego counties in
California have to contend with in tho
matter of heat in the summer months
is not generally understood. A correspondent, a mining superintendent
from Inyo county, reports that it has
been a mild nnd pleasant Bpring on tho
desert, becauso the thermomoter had
not been abovo 104 degrees. He confessed that ho had seen it in tho afternoon at 11*1 degrees in tho shade, and
10(1 degrees at 0 o'clock in tho morning. Extremes of temperature tn this
region run from 20 degrees at tho lowost to 120 degrees at tho highest; moreover, this heat occurs In a region whero
water and shado are scarce, Nevertheless, men will stand a groat deal in
tho soareh for gold, and this desert region lias of lato become vory attractive to prospectors, sinco boiiio finds ot
good ore havo been mado. It is well
known that somo profllnblo mines havo
boon developed thoro also.���Mining
Journal,
lviiy jiiniiiB i�� Attractive.
Tho main attraction about mining is
thr.t it gives quick action. For instance the prospectors wlio discovered
tlio Lucky Jack on Poplar creek about
a month ago, are now making a deal
for $75,000 cash. The men who are
selling out at this fancy figure have
probably beon packing thoir blankets
around tho hilis for two or tliree
deeados searching tor tho op:n scams
to nature's treasure vault, but when
luck finally came, it came all in a heap
and so quickly do they become wealthy
that thoy havo no timo fur that transition through which a business man
passes in accumulating wealth.
There is uo other business on earth
in whicli tho four men who own tho
Lucky Jack could havo mado $7(1,000
honestly in 00 days. That is why prospecting is popular.-Cranbrook Herald.

in the Kootenays, whero he won ami
lost soveral fortunes in mining. His
record as a promoter is clean, and his

POLITICAL.
Very little enthusiasm has been
manifested so far in this riding over
politics. Before another issue of
the Eagu*., however, we think the
political, situation will be receiving
more attention. As a starter, Hon.
I?. F. Green, minister of mines,
came "into the camp Wednesday and
'.lie same night held n political meeting at Five-Mile, which was attentively listened to. by the large
crowd* present. Thursday Mr.
Green visited the Nettie L. mine,
and today he and some friends are'
at the Silver Cup mine.      ���   -
A big time is expected at the
Liberal-Conservative mass meeting
in Ferguson Saturday night, at 8
o'clock, when we expect to. hear
speeches from the three candidates
in the field, Messrs. Retallack,
Shannon and Hon. R. F. Green,
I'very person in the camp should
come out to this meeting.
The nomination of candidates
will take place on the igth- of this,
month and the election on thc 3rd
of -October.
_,:      EDITORIAL NOTES.
���   _,' ; t
The Reliance succeeded  easily in
vanning America's cup in the final
rr.ee Thursday last. It was easy to
see from the first which was the
better boat. Sir Thomas, however,
has perfect confidence in his designer, skipper and crew, and will
make no change among his fellow
workers if he tries tor the cup
another, year. The final defeat of
Sir Thornis Lipton's cup challenger,
Shamrock III, was received in London with absolute iistlessness. The
consensus of opinion is that Sir
Thomas Lipton has done everything
that time and money could accomplish, and widespread' sympathy for
him is shown. The chief hope expressed in the streets is that Canada
will enter the lists next year and
probably succeed where the mother
country has failed. It seems improbable that in view of thc failure
of Shamrock III another challenger
will soon be dispatched from England. - .

We should all pull together for

CONSERVATIVE nATFOKM.
[Adopted at Revelstoke, September 13th, 1902.1
I. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the Tarty in matters of provincial roaas and
trail!.; the ownership and control of railways
and tho development of the agricultural re-
nouree<4 of the province as laid down in the
platform adopted iu October, 18_>9, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in (lie construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and the building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the
adoption of-tRe principle that no bonus Bhould
be granted to any railway company whioh
does not give tiie government of the province
control of rates over lines bonused, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of the
province. '
... That in thc meantime and until the railway policy above set forth can be accomplished, a general railway act be passed, giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations- analogous to the system
that has resulted iu *uch extensive railway
construction in the' Tinted States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
I), That to encourage the mining industry,
'the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on a basis of a percentageon the net profits.
4. That the government ownership of telephone systems should be brought about as a
tlrst step in the acquisition of public utilities.
fi. That n portion of every coal area hereafter to be disposed ol should be reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if tlieir operation becomes
necessary or ndvis-able.
ti. That in the pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that stops
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7; That the legislature and government of
the province sliould persevere ln the efforts to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms in thc
way of subsidy and appropriations for the
province should be vigorously pressed upon
thc Dominion government.
t��. That the silver-lead Industries of the
province be fostered and encouraged by the
imposition of increased customs duties on lead
nud lead products imported into Canada, and
that the Conservative members of tlie Dominion House be urged to support any motion introduced lor sucli a purpose, j
10. Tbat as industrial disputes almost Invariably result in great loss.*nd injury both to
the parties directly concerned and to the public, legislation should be passed to provide
means for an amicable adjustment of such disputes between employers and employees.
II. That it is advisable to foster the manufacture of thc raw products of the province
within thc province as far as practicable by
means of taxation on the said raw products,
subject to rebate of the same In whole or part
whim manufactured in British Columbia.

The claim jumper is abroad at
Poplar creek and several bf his
species are trying by nefarious
schemes to steal the Lucky Jack
from the men who braved the hardships of prospecting to discover it.
If these gentry attempted in any

games as they are playing at Poplar, the conversation of that camp
would be liberally punctuated by
gun play.

London, 8. W.��� June, 1908.
Sir���I am directed by the Commander-in-
Chief to inform you that it has been brought to
his notice that on thc conclusion of the recent
War in South Africa, a large number of Boer
families found, on returning to their farms,
tbat their family bibles had disappeared.
It appears that the Boer inhabitants of the
South African Colonies set great store by their
family Bibles, which often contain family
records of somo antiquity, and even ln some
cases are the only repository of such records in
consequence of tho unavoidable destruction of
church registers.
Lord Roberts feels sure that If any persons
have in their possession any of these Bibles
thoy will willingly return them when they
learn how they are valued by their former
possessors and he thinks it unnecessary to emphasize how much such a kindly act would be
appreciated by our new fellow subjects.
He therefore wishes it to be known a. widely
as possible among all officers and soldiers who
are now serving or have been retired, discharged or relegated to the Reserve,' whether
they belong or belonged to the Regular Army,
Auxiliary or Colonial Corps, and also among
any of their friends, to whom they may have
given them as relics, that Mr. \V. II. Alexander, of 12, Bishopsgatc Street Without, Loudon, E. C, has kindly consented to receive and
dispatch to their owners any such Bibles
which may have been taken from Boer farms.
He feels sure that the above facts and the
knowledge that it is hiswish tbat all such relics should find their way back to their former
owners will be sufficient to ensure that their
firesent owners, however much they value
hem, will readily part with them for this purpose.
I am, etc,
