IN JENERAL
Pertaining to Local and
Mining Matters
TBE CAMP IS ACTIVE
Kruger nud a Cache.
The British government is telegraphing to all tho German ports,
making inquiries concerning Boer
gold ..bars worth $650,000 which, it
is supposed have been brought to Germany from South Africa within the
past fortnight. The bars are destined
for former president Kruger, and, it is
presumed, bad been concealed in the
Transvaal. Great Britain will endeavor to legally attach the gold if it cau
be located, on the ground tbat she is
entitled to all the assets of the Trans-
Good Sleighing, Good Weather and I vail because she has assumed responsibility for tho debts ol that country,
An Abundant Faith in the
Resources of the Camp Gives
General Feeling of Prosperity.
T'n. Ferguson camp shows every
evidence of having passed from the
prospect stage to the more practical
position of a mining centre. The town
has now an air of stability that* comes
only after a camp has been proven and
found to bo permanent, T >e * re
bodies and lodes of the whole Lanleau
have, in most all cuses proven richer
and better as thoy wore tapped in the
bowels of tho earth. Not only to
residents is this fact realized, but It
is evident that tbis particular mining
district is being watched closoly by
peoplo till over Canada, tho United
Status untl Great Britain. A large
number of deals were put through
during the latter part of tho summer
aud tha fall months and arrangements
are being perfected by several new
organizations to carry on work in the
Lardoau noxt season. The Introduction of the new capital will make Ferguson �� town of much activity during
tbe season of 1003 and we look to see
our town advance by leaps and bounds.
Our three big mines, the Nettle L.,
Triune-and Silver Cup have not as yet
reached the point where they may be
called producing mines. Not till next
season will they have passed this stage
although a very considerable quantity
of ore, netting handsome returnB, has
been shipped. Tho Nettie L. has been
practically a self supporting property
from tho time the ore chute was Ilrst
tapped some  tlirco   years   ago,   but

including the bonds issued prior to the
war. Chamberlain, who is cognizant
of the proceedings, is on the high seas.
General Botha's reply to Colonial
Secretary Chamberlain that tho late
Boer government bad no assets wa*
strictly true as far as be knew, but
since receivin���> Mr. Chamberlain's letter General Botha learned, accordiug
to seemingly trustworthy information,
that Mr. Kruger and Dr. Leyds have
iu their possesaion $2,500,000. General
Botha requested them to turn over the
gold for the benefit of the Boer people, but Dr. Leyds refused, averitig
that the money was to be used in up
holding the Boer nationality in tho
future. General Botha hus notiiiod
Dr. Leyds that unless the gold is given
up legal proceedings will ba brought
agaiust hlra.
Two Important Assays Made of
Oup Ore. Good Profit From
Distriot Ores Even at Prevailing Prices.
The Fidelity Urouti.
On the American hill opposite Ger
rard and but three and a half miles by
trail Is situated tho Fidelity group of
claims owned by C. H. Abercombe and
George Young. Tne group cousista of
six claims aud there is a strong, well
mineralized ledge running through the
entire numbor and over a mile long.
Ii is in line and in the same mineral
zone as the Silver Cup and the character of ore ia similar giving good
values In silver and considerable gold.
Tbe main ledge la 30 feet wide and
there is a parallel ledge about 15 feet
wide and 100 feet from the mam ledge.
The owners have 250 feet of underground shaft and tunnel work and
$1,000 worth of surface work done
showing the property In good shapo
The Lardeau has become known far
and wide tis a silver-lead district and
on account of its galena ores carrying
higher values in silver, lead and giey
copper than any other district in B. C.
it has come to bo known as tho silver
lined Lardeau, This is a fuel but it is
not the whole truth for the Lardoau it-
more. Tne mines about Ferguson
curry from 160 to 200 ounces of Bilver
also averaging about 60 per cent, load
and all contain fair values in gold.
This oro could be mined and shipped
with a good profit for the silvor that it
contains alone, even with silver selling
at-17 cents per ounce, hut ourrylug as
it does good values in other minerals
the prutlls aro just so much enhanced.
A lot continuing 21 tons ol
Silver Cup oro was aaaayeu
towards tl o last of October which was
found to contain D.ilO oz. gold, 180 oz
silver. The duplicate sample of tin
samo taken lu November which was
curefully tested was found to exceed
the former assay, the certificate showing 180 oz. silver und 14 oz. gold���
$280. Valuing silver at 50 cents and
gold at $20 the valuu of the shipment
would amount to $7770.00 ��� without tak*
iDg into consideration the lead tliui
the ore contained.
Free Mining Machinery,
Thero was a good attendance at tho
conference hold in Nelson of the lead
mine owners of B. C. and tlio discussion proved profitable aud interesting.
The following resolution was adopted:
Whereas, it is desirable in the
interest of tho silver-load mining and
smelting industries of British Columbia that the duties on pig load and the
products theroof imposod by tho Dominion should be increased so as to bo
on a parity with the dutios on other
raw materials and their manufacturers
whioh aro the products ol Canttda, and
Whereas, it is desirable in the interests of tho mining industry generally
that all machinery and supplies used
in mines and smellers of a kind not
manufactured ih Canada be admitted
freo of duty.
Therefore bo it resolved that wo
request the member in the Dominion
house of commons for Vale-Cariboo.

promlnenoo of tho surfaco judging from other properties in the near
viciuity, some of which are ou the same load nnd have developed
very rich ore bodies,
It; conclusion I would say that tho Lardoau Mines nre as good as
any, II not the best, iu the vicinity, audi verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, tliey should be mado dividend paying iu a
short timo, and I wuuld strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end.
