W. B. Pool Sizee Up Thia Promising Oamp.
IS il YELLOW MEM CAM!
Oold Beyond The Dreams of Aver
ioa Can Be Seen Lying
Around
W. B. Pool, thu well known Lardeau
raining -nan visited Fish Creek, our
���later camp, last week. When seen by
an Eagle reporter he had hardly
recovered from the marvelous sight
of (fold ore exposed on tho properties
visited. Mr. Pool says that exaggeration ot the wonderful richueM of Fisb
Creok is impossible. He hai} no Idea
that the oamp was as rich as it is. To
back those statements Mr. Pool has
samples of ore from the diffeient
claiiui. No trials is necessary tu examine these specimens as tbey are
literally held togetbor by the yellow
metal,
The lirst property visited was tlie
Moscow, Mr. Pool has had about 100
feoi, of wink done on this property.
Then: Is a big showing of silver-lead
ore ou tin's claim but as the gold leuds
pass through it tbe management
Intend to prospect these quartz ledges
till they iinuutivei' the hidden treasure
of yellow metal which undoubtedly
lies hurried in these ledges.
Tho Lucky Jack was next visited
on which the owners have done some
100 feet of work sue have cut 14 feet of
free-milling gold ore in which tbe
gold is plainly visslble They also
have a big body of silver-lead ore
exposed but pass il. over like a white
chip in a lret*ze-i>ht gurnet us 'be yellow
���tuIT in so much moro enticing.
Ou the Criteriuu-O.vster group de
relopment lias shown up enormous
bodiu.-i ol free milling ore, and also
���ome two feet of galena, but practically
no attention is paid to the galena al
present, Tbe original looutors stili
own it.
The Imperial group is developed
beyond the prospect stage and can now
���be classed as a big mine. Tbey have
mult a winze 60 feet below their
present workings and have a hig bud,'
of high grade free-milling ore. This
winze makes a total depth of over 400
feet which practically blocks out,
several thousand tons of the highest
grade free-milling ore which has ever
been found In British Columbia. Tbe
Ragle congratulates Mr Graucoy on
his success as a great deal of tht
present prosperity of this company h
due io Ills courage and perseverance
and ihe company uan congratulate
themselves thai, they own the property
loday as everything points to it holug
worth millions Instead of a few tin.us-
aud dollars,
Mr. Pool also visited the Beatrice
p.tid siiis that the recent reports of the
rich strike lias really beon under the
mark.   This) perty will undoubtedly
be heard from   to good advantage in
the future.
On the Camborne group a mill Is in
course of erection and teu stumps will
soon he dropping on the usual higli
grade oro of the camp. There is a
Valuable water power ou this property
easily harnessed and centrally located
which will be a boon to the whole
camp as great, power can bo products!
at minimum cost.
Among the other promising claims
visited by Mr. Pool Is tho Gold Finch.
This claim shows the usual lii'h
grado gold ore of tlio camp and is
owned by Oan Cameron aud Butler
Dan Is woll known in tbis camp sod
the hoys bere hope he  will make a
good stake.
The Mr, Gilman group, owned by
Barney Crilly and Smith averages
������toll per ton across thu vein and is
bound to be a great producer.
Mr. Pool mentioned several other
rlaims but between bearing of so many
gtid claims and looking at free gold
samples we lust our bead and failed to
note them.
The owners of tbe Camborne town-
sit-, Messrs. Wallaet, and Menhenick
are showing landahle enterprise iu
handling their property and intend to
procure a paper to let tho world know
the wonderful'i'esuui'i-es nf the camp.
The hotel accommodation is all taken
up, new buildings are being ereeletl
and everything points to a good summer,
The people ot Comaplix anil Camborne have joined bands and are
urid-'ing Pish creek independent ol
any government help. Mr. Fraser,
gold commissioner, made a flying visit
into the camp but gave nu promise of
government aid. There Is no excitement over tbe rich finds but development Is being steadily pushed and
unless the prospectors and business
men of Ferguson get in and rustle
Fish Creek is going to heat us hollow.
We have the same belt of country
passing through this camp and tbe
Eagle advises our prospectors to be on
tbe look out for gold bearing quartz
for we bave not the least doubt but
that as good things will be uncovered
thia side of the divide.

Death uf Turn II��i-u.
Great sorrow was caused iu camp by
the sad news of the drowning uf Tout
Horn and Johnnie Boyd. The accident happened about six miles from
Kevelstoke, full accounts of which are
���liven in the Revelstoke papers. Tom
was well known in this camp being one
if the old time prospectors. He was
well respected by till who knew him
and the manner of his death brings
home to our minds tlie fact that lile's
greatest herons are not found on the
lield of conllict. There is not a
shadow of doubt In Ihe minds of those
who w'tnessed the accident but what
Tom could huvo easily saved himself if
he bud not swam to the assistance of
Bnydj but his duty called him to try to
savu his put titer and he wetit iintllneh-
ingly to death, another soul added
tii tl,e long list of tlie world's noblest
heroes. And while we all feci lhe loss
which his family und the community
a' large has sustained the sharp edges
of grief are removed in contemplation of the noble manner of his death,
a i.cath that was in keeping with Ills
ooeti manly life. He i. gone but his
memory will he kept aveaii in the
minds of a good many of the hoys of
the l-ardeuu and when we aro shout to
lose faith iu our fellow man th.it
reiTiemhe.t.'ineo will ever servo to
remind us that all men are not stilish
time servers.

Word wus received in town tliis
week that Mr. J. J, Young bad been
elected tn tlie local legislature to
represent Knst Calgary, The Eagle
wishes to congratulate Mr. Voting on
his election. We are glad to see that
men of Mr. Young's ability ami position are willing to devote a portion of
of their time to the government of the
country, Ho Is comparatively a young
man und wu feel coutlidunt thut bis
record in bis present position will mark

blinds of his fellow citizens.
Messrs. Atwood and Forbes and Mrs.
Atwood arrived In town this week.
t'he gentlemen in question arc mining
men of good standing and will size up

J. Marshall, a former resident of tho
Lardeau, arrived in town this weok.
Jack baa been in Fornio most of tlio
winter and just got out of there in timo
to miss the terrible oxploslon of last
week.
The Ferguson saw mill has been
moved to Alpha eroek and |s now busy
trying to catch up with the numerous
orders (or local buildings.
Last week a representative of the
Eagle visited the Nettie I. hill. Tho first
property we came to was tbe Maybe.
Toe tunnel is In about 300 feet anil for
the last i(IQ feet they have had a streak
of ovq varying from four inches to one
foot in thickness. This property is
owned by Un Double Eagle mining Co.
and they intend to put in near and
raise to the surface for air. Tbo ore is
not as high grado as that found in the
Nettie L. but is improving us they
drift ou it and gives promise of becoming much better with depth.
We had dinner nt the Nettle L, and
then went through the mine. We
expected to see considerable ore hut
was not at all pieoareo to see ati.v
such quantity ai they I,.ive In sigh,.
Tt is safe to say they have tbousunds
of tons of ore blocked out (we mean
free on three side.-) which Is near
enough to show the great extent of the
ore shute. Tile company has oo
idea of lhe qttuntlty of ore they have,
They have traced the e tile oil the
surface for over 1UU feet further tliatt
they have drifted on it and the chances
are it extends further yet and when we
consider tliey have struck llila ore

Timbering ut Minna*
lly A. *v. Clap*-.,
Prof. W. W. Ifluke. director of the
Arizona School of Mine., lias been dl
cussing the timbering of mines, a pa
tlcular example from which to deduct
a moral being tlio caving In of the
.Mammoth mine north of Taction. Ariz
The professor bellet'oslittle in timbers,
as tbey are generally used, und suggests a surer mode for removing large
ore deposits. After a talk wilh tils
writer with regard to the caving In ol
the mine Prof. Blake continued:
"This extensive caving und crushing
is anol iter example _ of many of the
futility of tttlompliug tu bold up a
mountain with timbers. Even on
tbe Comstock lode, tn Virginia City,
within sight almost of the superb pine
forests of the Sierra Nevndas, tbe
transfer of large portions of those
forrests tn the Interior of tho mines in
the shape of square sets, framed and
set witli geometrical precision, served
only tlio temporary purpose of checking incipient caving of the walls and
securing the safety of the miners for a
timo, But when heavy -splitting off
from the walls began, with crowding
ut ono side or the other, tbo beautiful
symmetry of the square sot structure
wus impaired and tlio posts were
thrown out of plumb,   Tbo structure
had more tbo nature of a trap than a
shield.
"So It was ut the Emma, in Utah ; at
tho Silver King, and at tbe United
Verde in Arizona, and ever will lie In
mines where there ure large stoped
-paces, with walls lluhle to split off
and fall In. It Is only a question of a
row months or years iu most ones,
when a collapse must come, ami .*������ n-
orally with fatal suddenness and grest
loss to property and life.
"How, then, shall we work st t-h
deposits? This is a questtot ^fronting the raining engineer, and requiring
his best efforts for Its solution. It ia
nut a new problem and each case has
its peculiar condition.*!) that no fixed
rule or method can be Insisted on.
There is, however, ono general plan
whieh may be adopted. If tlie walls
are unstable and unsafe, caving should
he regarded as advantageous. - Let the
ground cave in and foilhw the extraction. Do not try to hold it up; remove
tbe ore below the wreckage in such a
way tbat this wreckage shall follow
slowly but surely, and fill tho spares
from which tbe oro has been removed
attack tbe unbroken ore in such a way
as to remove it in blocks or slices of
convenient width, as in tholongwall
system of mining coal. Or drifts may
bo run at right angles just under
tho wreckage, so as to block out
regular squares, ono after the other
being removed.
"Access may bo had by eiilo drifts or
galleries iu tbe firm ground. The
slopes may ba carried across tlio led*

MONEY

YOU
GET IN ON THE
GROUND FLOOR
While visiting lhe Nellie L. lusl
t.vli and seeing the wonderful
sh.ming ol ore exposed there we
coulj nol iielp thinking of what a
grcal business mining is. Show us
another business thai Mr. Pool, notwithstanding his business ability,
pluck and enterprise, could have
gone into and made the same financial success us he has of mining
within the past three years. Not
orify Mr. Pool but at least 50 other
men have made from $1,000 to
$100,000 within the last five years
in this camp. Mining offers the
best inducement today for men ol
small means as well as for capitalists. It is true that some men
,vork at it all their life and never
make 0 strike but tho percentage of
sober, industrious prospectors who
make money is by no means small.
