Getting Better with Development.
Preparing for a Shipment. The
Tunnel now in 45 feet. Tha Lead
Widening at Every Shot. ���
The Winslow on the Silver Cup
slope is fulfilling the expectations of
its owners. This excellent free gold
properly was located last fall, but
the arrival cf winter put a check on
immediate development. With the
disappearance of lhe snow active
mining operations prevailed, and today lhe Winslow will stand an inspection. S. Shannon, II.A., recently visited lhe mine, and to our
representative he gave it as his
opinion that it "was the finest
thing in the country."
Paddy Murphy and Jim Grant
brought down some average samples on Wednesday morning for
assay, as a trial shipment is being
made. Grant informed US that tlie
property is a splendid one. A tunnel has been driven for 45 feet, and
they are now in 22 it. on lhe lead,
that gives a depth ol Irom 50 to 60
ft., -.and a width of 9 ft. carrying
free gold throughout. On lhe fool
wall Grant told us there was a 2 ft.
ledge of wonderful value, nearly all
mineral, and away up in gold values,
and on the hanging wall there was
considerable gold. The men are all
naturally elaled at the fine showings,
and arc all very anxious for visitors
to make the trip to verify their
assertions, There should not be
much dillicully in effecting' a sale,
and the men are confident that if
publicity is given to i:, the money
will come along, and as a result
other properties will be snapped up
and developed (or the vast deposits
ol free gold which abound on the
Progress at Tonawanda.
Six men are now employed at
this properly. A pack-train with
provisions for several months went
up to the mine this morning. The
men have been engaged sinking a
62 foot shaft, and an overflow ol
water greatly handicapped Iheir exertions. A complete pumping apparatus is now satisfactory installed,
and Ihe difficulty overcome. The
owners are confident that before
many weeks they will be shipping
" the goods."
Latest reports from Spokane are
that the holders of the bond on lhe
Hecla, Rapid creek, .are willing to
pay the whole amount now if
allowed a small discount. This is
much better than the previous offer.
It is reported lhat the placer-
mining outfits around the camp are
fill doing weli. It is said thai the
crew operating at 9-Mile are obtaining a large quantity of the. precious
nielnl, and that $300 represented a
Clean-up one day last week,
11 Gold is -Boomin
Thousands of Tons of Ore on
Sight. The Government Must
Build a Wagon Road up tho
North Fork.
The live topic in Ferguson this
week has been the pressing need of
a wagon road up to Surprise creek.
At present there is, perhaps, a mile
completed, and the trail for the remaining 5 miles lias been graded
for a wagon road. The advent of
this road will mean the immediate
sale of many properties, and capital
will have a fair show. On the
Norlh Fork trail are to be found
some of the best properties in the
country, but lack ol vehicular transportation has crippled several excellent shippers, and prevented the
opening up many promising properties. The government has pledged
itself to build the road just as soon
as ore shipments warranted it, and
we submit the time has arrived for
the fulfilment of that pledge. The
ore on the Old Gold alone warrants
the completion of the wagon road.
At thc present time the ore is being
brought lo town by pack-train, and
a round trip is a day's work, Thc
cost per ton to this point is in the
neighbourhood of $30, and this
takes a big slice off the'returns of
$100 ore. II this road were built
the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., owners of the Old Gold,
and other mines across the Duncan
'divide, would immediately erect
a tramway Irom '.he Old Gild basin
to Surprise creek. The company
would realize splendid returns by
this method, as it is estimated that
ore could be placed at Trout Lake
at $6'per ton. The company are
naturally desirous of this road being
speedily completed, as by this means
the transportation problem they
have been bucking against would
be satisfactorily solved. The fact
of their intention to erect a tramway
should be a sufficient guarantee to
to the powers-that-be that Ihey
have sufficient ore on sight to warrant such an expenditure. The
Surprise group will also demonstrate the urgent demand of the
wagon road, and there are other
valuable properties which would
ship ore wilh Ihe completion of the
road. It should be the simplest
tiling in the world for the government to at once send along an expert to visit the Norlh Fork, for by
this means ample evidence would
be forthcoming of the pressing need
of a wagon road.
We feel confident this will be
attended lo without delay.
Native Silver Found on
the Lucky Jim.
Excellent reports reach us from
the Lucky Jim. The 150 feet tunnel
being driven to .the lead is now in
75 feet, nnd last week a blind lead
running' wilh the formation was
struck, and sonic nice specimens of
native silver located. Recent assays
from this properly range from $500
to $1,000, and a do lb. sample to
the smelter returned $554.
One More fo Fill
the 11.
The North Pork Eoad Has One
Moro Shipper added to the
already Large List. Located but
a week ago, and To-Day ia Shipping High-Grade Ore.
When activity in mining circles
prevails there will be centred in the
Ferguson camp a great amount of
interest. We doubt, if during the
past year any other camp on this
continent has added to its lists as
many shippers as the camp at Ferguson. One certain thing is that
when capital tends towards matters
mining there will be " a full stock
to select from." Yet another instance ot the wealth of our hills was
brought to light on Tuesday, tlie
claim was staked but a few days
ago, and the lucky owner has now
a ton of high-grade ore nn the
road to the smelter. The claim is
called the Morning*, and is situate
at the head of McDonald creek on
the North Fork road, and tributary
to the west fork of the Duncan
river. The owner is Hugh Urown,
who is also interested in other paying properties in the vicinity. At
tlie present moment the Norlh Fork
road is demanding great attention
from prospectors, and we have recorded rich strikes Irom time lo
time. We had an opportunity of
inspecting the ore, which was
brought, down by pack-train this
morning in sacks, which would
average about 145 lbs. The ore is
high-grade silver-lead variety, with
a large amount of rich soft carbonates, which is expected to carry high
gold values.
Experts aver that 1905 will see a
big boom in mining circles, and, if
lhe quotation that "money speaks
all languages" is to be believed,
that boom will be right here.
Election Probabilities.
Winnipeg, Sept. 19,1- The Tribune
says dial it learned to-day on good
authority, that orders had been senl
out from Ottawa to the Liberal
candidates throughout the West, to
at once select returning officers, and
forward lhe names to Ottawa, The
order is accompanied by a note, lo
make the selection without any de-
lav whatever. Consequently several
returning officers have already been
chosen. The candidates have not
been inlormed of the exact dale of
the election, but have been given lo
understand lhat polling will take
place during the next seven weeks.
Work on Tiie Cromwell.
The tunnel on the Cromwell is
now in 70 feet on the lead, There
is a 4 It. lead which carries high
gold values. A 20 lon shipment
realized Si eg per ton. The property is owned by a local syndicate,
Messrs, Alex. Smith, Sid Grahamc,

A Nugget for the King.
Vancouver, Sept. .20.���Dawson
advices just received state that the
biggest Klondike nugget yet discovered is now on exhibition in thai
city. The nugget weighs 85.43 oz*
and does not contain a particle of
quartz. It is valued at $1,280.00.
It was found on No. 1 claim, French
gulch, by R. C. McCollum.
When first encountered this valuable nugget was thrown to one
side on the waste pile. It looked
just like a large flat pebble, and it
was not until some time later lhat
McCollum's attention was attracted
by what he thought to be the glimmer of gold. He then began lo
realize lhat he had struck something good, and hastened into Dawson to have the "pebble " examined.
It was found to be as stated above.
When exhibited here public interest
was greatly aroused, and a project
was soon on foot 10 purchase the
nugget by public subscription and
present it to King Edward with a
request that he use it: as a centre
piece in his crown, and lo have it
surrounded by gems and precious
stones from ail parls of the empire.
This scheme will undoubted''.' he
carried out, and before a great
while tliis Klondike nugget will
figure in the great ceremonies of
state in the motherland.

Thinks Tax Too Heavy
Sir   Thomas  Shaughnessy, who [
recently visited Vancouver in the i
interests of the C.P.R., was interviewed by  ihe Province reporter.
His remarks will prove of interest, I
as they may be of great local signifi-j
ennce.     A   recently published map
from  C.P.R.   headquarters   shows,
that no changes are contemplated
locally.     It is .gratifying to note
we  are  still  in the running, as the
route to Ferguson comes tinder the
heading of" Projected Extensions,"
Sir Thomas  was  reminded that on
the occasion of his last visit to Vancouver he had said   that the C.P.R.
would not extend its system in this
province until adequate returns were
secured from existing* lines,  and he
was   asked   if   he had altered  his
opinion in any way.
" No, I cannot say that I have
changed my mind regarding extensions in Hritish Columbia," said Sir
Thomas, " bill there are other
reasons why the company will remain quiet and watch proceedings ;
if we are lo believe what appears
in the press from time to lime, there
is much hatching of schemes with
other people going on. The heavy
lax which Ihe C.P.R. is compelled
to pay in this province is somewhat
burdensome and unjust in my opinion. Comparing this tax wilh that
imposed on (he general taxable interest of Ihe province il is unduly
heavy. It cannot he said that the
railroad lines in the mining districts
of this province are paying as a
whole. Some ol them are nol paying and others arc. Of course of
late conditions in the mining sections have not been sueh that all
the lines could pay. Possibly with
the return of general activity in
mining quarters belter times may

to Obtain Water a Complet*-
As announced last week, the mill
at Five Mile owned by Ike Silver
Cup Mines, Ltd. has been seriously
hampered from shortage of water,
by reason of an unusually dry
season. Water hns been obtained
from the creek which runs ne.".;
the mouth of the Nellie L lowe;
tunnel, for the successful accomplishment of which a series of dams,
flumes and ditches were made down
the mountain side to the mill, a distance of a mile and a hall. The
feat was a complete success, as the
desired water reached the mill at
the first time of asking. As a result great activity prevails at Five-
Mile, 20 stamps are pounding away
day and night, and the staff has
been greatly increased during the
week. Extra men have also been
engaged for bush work. The camp
is fast assuming the appearance of
a town, as irrespective ofthe gigantic mill and outbuildings, there are
some 30 residences, offices, etc.,
which would not disgrace the principal thoroughfares of any city.
Monday last was pay-day at the
Two pack-trains with ore came
down from the Spyglass this week.
It will lake about three weeks or a
month to bring down a carload.
The ore is very rich in silver, witli
gold values as well. At the mine

and work is being pushed on the

What Is It ?
An interesting object was brought'
to this office on Monday last. It is
a replica of a human foot in solid
rock, and lhe symmetrical detail is
so complete and natural that all
manner ol theories has been advanced as lo its origin. Thc object
has been exhibited around town,
and the popular supposition is that
il'is a fossillized foot, and adherents
to ihe beliel in prehistoric man have
had .nod lor reflection. Certain it
is lhat the object bears not the
slightest resembli nee to the fool of
a monkey, which is somewhat con.
soling, li was discovered in a dam
by Mr. W. Macfarlane, near the
South Fork bridge, whilst ho was
engaged in placer-mining nt that
point. A solution to the mystery
may be found in 'die fact of its being
so near the river, and as tlie
boulders lying around Indicate liial
water must have coursed over them
many years ago, it is but natural to
suppose that this lump of rock has
been fashioned to its present shape
by the action of running water, i* 1
this as it may, it certainly is a mosl
interesting object, and Mr. Macfarlane will treasure it as such,

This is the time of the year when
