Report of F. C. Campbell, Mining Recorder.
Mr. F. C. Campbell, mining recorder for the Trout Lake Mining
Division, in his annual report to the
Minister of Mines for tho year ending
31st Deeemhor, 1903, just issued, opens
his report with the following sanguinary statement:
"In thc past this Division has
been considered purely & silver-lead
camp, but I am pleased to say that
the development of the past year indicates that, within the near future
it'will prove to be a gold-producing
district of some Importance."
The following is the full text of the
report, dealing with the property in
tho district, and showing as it does the
resources and development of the division, it will prove very interesting
reading ;
Silver Cup and Nettio L.
On the Silvor Cup and Nettio L.,
which are being worked by different
companies under one management, ore
bodies of sufficient size have be��n encountered at a depth to warrant the installation of a combination concentrating and chloridislng plant, of a capacity of 30 tons per day, for the treatment of their low-grade base ores. In
addition, aerial tramways havo been
constructed, connecting tho mines with
the reduction plant. About 80 men
have been employed on these mines
during the summer.
The Silver Oup, which is owned by
the Silver Cup Mines, Ltd., is situated
on the South Fork of Lardeau Creek,
about eight miles from Ferguson. On
this property 1,800 feet of development
work has been done during the year,
consisting chiefly of a long tunnel from
the Sunshine claim, which will cut
the oro chute worked on the Silvor Cup
at a depth of 375 feet bolow tbo old
workings. Tbe output of smelting ore
for the year has been 070 tons, which
has given returns from the smelters of
$82,212.87. In addition to tliis a large
tonnage of second class oro has been
brokon down, which has been reserved
for future treatment. The average
number ot meu employed underground
has been 110, and above ground 10.
On tho Nettie L., owod by the Great
WeBtcrn Mines, Ltd., and situated on
a mountain bearing the same name,
2,000 feet of development-work had
boen done during tho year. The output of smelting oro has been about
1,040 tons, giving a net return of
;.57,078.54 A largo tonnage of lowor
grade ore bas also beeu broken down
op this property and reserved for future
treatment.. The average numbor. of
mon employed underground has been
25, and abovo ground 10 ���'
On the Union Jack, Bltuated near
"���Mile creek, and owned by J. C. Kirkpatrick et nl., tho cross-cut tunnol has
been continued 100 feet, cutting tho
lead at a depth of 250>feet. At this
point the vein consists of about eight
Ieet of concentrating ore, carrying $10
In gold and 30 ozs. silver per ton.
On the Triune, owing to the destruction of the tramway during the past
winler by Bnowslides, tho work performed has been very limited. Sufficient
sloping, however, has beon done to
enable the company to ship about
ioo tons of ore, of a value of about 250
ozs. silver and 33 per cent. lead. Eight
men wero employed during the summer. This proporty is Bltuated on
Triune mountain, and is operated by
the Metropolitan Gold and Silver Mining Co., Ltd.
The Black Prince, situated at tho
head of Gainer Creek, was acquired
lato last full by Mr. Anthony Becker
and associates, who Immediately proceeded to work of a prospecting uuturo,
uncovering   ��   ohule of high-grade
silver-lead ore, in which a tunnol of
about 40 feet was driven. Owing, however to the lateness of the season, they
were unable to equip the property for
winter work, but it is their intention
to resume operations in tho early
spring and thoroughly exploit their
holdings.
Tbe Mohican, adjoining ths Black
Prince, has been purchased by tho
Cariboo Creek Development Syndicate,
whioh has driven about 400 foet of
tunnel during the yoar. In the work*
ings a large body of concentrating ore
has been encountered, and which can
be reduced to give value of about 200
ozs. silver per ton. Nine tons of sorted
ore wore ebipped, whioh gave values
of about 60 ozs. silver and 30 per cent,
lead. As soon as transportation facilities are afforded, it is the Intention of
the company to erect a concentrating
plant.
On the Luoky Boy, situatod on
Trout Creek, and owned bv C. D. Stan-
wood, et al., the main shaft has been
sunk to a depth of 110 feet. At the 50
foot level drifts have been extended to
the left for a distance of 110 feot, and to
tho right for a distance of 75 feot.
From the left drift a raise has been
made to tbe surface. Nearly all the
ore shipped haB been taken from the
right drift. A second level has been
started at a depth of 104 feet, and
driven for a distance of 100 feet to the
left and a raise made to connect with
the upper level. Another drift bas
been run to the right 30 feet. Numerous open cuts have been made, exposing the vein on tho surface for a distance of 000 feet, and ore Is now being
stoped out between the two levels. The
ore in the shaft continues for the whole
distance down and runs from three inches to one foot in clean ore. In the
second level both drifts are in ore, running in width about the same as in the
shaft. Tbe oro is a high-grade galena
and grey copper, and averages from
250 to 300 ozs. In Bllver, and from 20 to
35 per cent, lead per ton. Two hundred tons of ore have been shipped
during'tljp year; 17 mon are employed
on thin property.
On the Ethel which is situated on
Glacier creek and owned by tbo same
parties as the last mentioned property,
about 500 foet of development work has
been done during tho year. Twenty
tons of ore were shipped, which gave a
valuo of 200 oz. of silvor per ton.
The Oromwell is situatod about nine
miles north-east of Trout Lake. On
this property considerable surface
work has been done, exposing a lead of
an average width of about 4 feet for a
distanco of 1,500 feet. Assay values
are $80 in gold and 70 oz. silver por
ton. A cross-cut tunnel bas been
driven a distance of 200 feet; it is estimated that this tunnel continued 400
feet will cut the lead at a depth of 800
feet below the surface. The property
Is owned by S. J. Graham et al.
The I.X.L., situated about one and a
half miles south-east of the last-mentioned property, and owned by Dr.
Mllloy, of Kossland, has been under
lease during the year. The leaseholders have driven cbout 300 foet of
cross cut tunnel, cutting the lead at a
depth of 200 feet, at which point a good
body of concentrating ore was encountered. About 8 tons of sorted ore were
shipped.
The No. 3, adjoining tbe last-mentioned property, has been purchased by
the Gold Belt Development Syndicate,
which bas driven about 75 feet of crosscut tunnel. Tbo surface showings on
this property give assay values of $00
in gold per ton.
On the Amerloan, owned by the
Mountain Lion Mining Co., and situated on Haskins creek, about 1,500 feot
of development work has been done
during the year, and 15 tons of ore wore
shipped1. Seven men woro employed
on this property.
The Handy is situated about one
and a half milos south of Gerrard, and
is owned by Col. Brayton and associates. On this property is a lead about
4 feet wide, carrying gold, silver and
copper values, and 150 feet of development work havo been dono during the
year. ���
On the Golunibia, situated near the
mouth of Tenderfoot creek, and owned
by P. F. Huffman et al., a cross-cut
tunnel has been driven for a distanco
of about 100 feot. Gold valuos are obtained from this property.
On the John L., owned by the Lardeau Valley Mines, Ltd., and situatod
near tho last-mentioned property, a
tunnel has been driven 100 feet on a
vein averaging from 3 to 12 feet in
width, and carrying excellent gold
values.
About 110 feet of worlc was done on
the North Star, owned by Harry
Rogers, et al., and is situated on
Rapid creek. Thero is a quartz lead 4
feet wide on the claim, carrying free
gold.
The Luoky Jack, situated on Poplar
creek, was located on the 9th of July,
1903. Phenomenal surface showings of
free gold wore discovered, whieh resulted In the acquiring of the property
by the Groat Northern Mines, Ltd.,
whioh immediately . rooeeded with development work. About 300 feet of
tunneling have been done, as well as
considerable surface work.
On tho Swede Group, which is
also situated on Poplar oreek, and
owned by tho last-mentioned company,
a tunnel has been driven about 70 ft. as
well aseonsiderable work of a prospecting nature done. A tost shipment of
9 tons was also made from this property
to the company's mill, from which
good gold values were obtained.
The Gold Park Group consists of
throe claims, situated on Poplar creek
and owned by Messrs. Marquis & Gilbert. On this property thore aro a
number of lends carrying good gold
valuos. The work dono consists mostly
of stripping and open cuts. A small
shipment was made to the Trail smelter, from whieh very satisfactory ro-
sults were obtained.
The Broken Hill, a gold property on
Rapid crook has been acquired by Mr.
C. T. Porter, of Spokane, who will proceed with development (n the early
spring.
The Home Run, on Poplar oreek,
anothor gold property, has been purchased by Mr. J. L. Whitney, of Rossland, who has let contracts for considerable development work.
Tbe Spyglass, also on Poplar creek,
and wh'ioh has one of the best surface
showings ot high-grade ore In the division, has been bonded by Mr. R. G.
McLeod, of Nelson, who has mado a
substantial payment, and will proceed
with development in the oarly spring.
The Golden West nnd Crown King
have passed into the hands of Mr. W.
F. Teetzel, of Nelson, These are good
gold properties situated on Poplar
creek.
Work of a prospecting nature haa
been done, with good results, on a
great many of the claims located during the year, and the outlook for 1904
li very favorable.

Tliey Buooeed in Limiting lho " Cup"
Main Vein on the Union Jack Claim.
There was a smile as extended as the
sidewalk on the respoctivo dials of Lou
Thompson and Will Waller when
thoy reached town on Wednesday
morning. For threo months they have
been away up at the Union Jack mine,
and the fact of their onee moro shaking
hands with civilization did not alone
account for that smile. Asked for an
explanation���said Lou ; " We've got
what we were after, aud it's ull there."
Pressed for moro lucid information it
transpired tbat Waller and Thompson
have succeeded in locating the rich
Silver Cup main voin, whieh as
events prove, they rightly conjectured
ran through the Union Jack property.
They struck tho blind vein some two
months ago, but raised up on it as the
water beat them out, but being on the
right lay they persevered and ran
through about 85 foet of hard rook, and
eventually ran into the vein. They
report having encountered au unlimited
supply of concentrating quartz, and did
not intend quitting their exertions until
thoy had reached the sacking ore, but
business of a personal nuturo and a
prolongod exilo Irom the haunts of men
and matters diverted their attention to
a temporary spell of relaxation.
This rich strike will enhance tho intrinsic value of the group to such an
extent that tho syndicate owning the
property can command their own
figures.. Looking too far forward is at
all titnes a risky and occasionally a
disappointing 'proceeding, but in conversation on the live topic with a prominent disinterested citizen on Wednesday night, ho remarked ho would
be guided by the opinion of Waller in
the matter, who as a miner and an expert had averred it was tho richest
thing he had seen, and prophesied that
Ferguson was in for a good time, as
ho llrmly bolleved this would prove
the largest ore-producing camp in the
country.

Duty on Lumber
The British Columbia lumbermen
waited on the government last week
and asked for a customs duty of $2 on
rough lumber, which is now admitted
free, and 30 cents on shinglos. An
elaborate statement of the esse was
handed to the government. Messrs.
Scott, Hendry and Wells addressed tho
ministers on tho necessity of moro protection to tho industry on account of
competition from the United Statos.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said tho government would consider the representation.

The Japanese were proceeded by two

"The Lardean Division is fast coming

Social Temper of Mining Camps.
The history of mining camps from
the'date of discovery to the time of
maturity is an entertaining study
without reference to the prosaic industrial aspects of their growth.
The sociological side ot their development (urnishes food for reflection
from which certain generalization
can be derived not wholly without
value lo the hard-headed, single-
minded business man. The success
or failure ot inveslments in mines,
or at least their highest fruitfulness,
have too often been bound up wilh
the public temper of the mining
community rot to compel attention
lo these social phenomena, though
it is not the more serious aspects of
the mailer, as for example the restlessness of labor, politics or possible
ollieial insolence, to which reference
is here made.
Many a new mining camp has
become notorious at the outset for
lhe rough 'character of its population, taken at an average, and the
reckless forms of entertainment in
which it indulges. There is nothing surprising about this, for af
such a period the camp is in its adventuresome stage, and it encourages such a mental attitude on the
part of itirfirst citizens. Ultimately
the camp will settle down to a more
serious understanding of its mission
nml its relationship to the rest ot
thc world, the community will cry-
stalize and social order will steadily
Improve to lhe level of the standards prevailing in older settlements.
The development of such a camp
from the adventuresome period to
Ihe period of soberness, it may be
noted, is measured by the development ol flie mines from the stage of
iinc'ertuirily to that of certainly.
The feelings of suspense, the sud-
den'Surptisrs, and all the sensations
that, attend the discovery and early
development of a rich mineral belt
naturally contribute to a reckless
manner .if life. Alter a time these
conditions disappear, and there is a
change,
Another symptom of the adventuresome spirit is louncl in the speculative excitement lhat usually
spreads beyond ths borders of the
camp into the oulside world. At
such a time practically all the properly in lhe camp is in its prospective stage, nnd speculation thrives
upon uncertainty. While the reckless home spirit is at its height, the
speculative spirit is rampant without, and although lhe two phenomena are not necessarily concomitant, they arc at least traceable to
similar causes. , It is remarkable
that when the camp is producing
little, investments 'move less conservatively than when it is produc
ing much. u the " height ot a
boom " * verythirig in the way of a
" flyer " is in order ; when the so-;
called boom has subsided, the'
springs ol investment freeze up.
Why is this so ?
Strange, but true, it is because
ihe uncertainty has disappeared.
The impression gels abroad that
iii, re ars i o morenelvopportunities
loll.    Tii: camp is no longer virgin.
And so the district enters upon
the lustrum of sedate activity. Its
works arc greater than ever, and
ils fruitfulness larger, but its age* is
against it in the minds ol many.
As there has bceii a change in
the predominating spirit of the mining camp, so there will come a
change in tlie predominating spirit
ofthe investment world. The solid
foundations of the well established
mining community will be found
more inviting, and a reaction in the
right direction will surely overtake
the mind ot the investor.���Rossland
Miner.
There is one tiling the people of
this town should do, lirst, last and
all the time, and that is lo support
the school trustees in tlieir efforts to
run our school successfully. By
the irony ot late we are not in the
position to supply the average attendance which would warrant us
demanding ol the government their
full control of the education ol
our rising generation. With even
the present grant the trustees do
successfully pilot the school, but
there are limes .when the grave
danger exists of this grant being
deleted by reason of the average
attendance noi being up to standard. |
In a small town the population owe I
a duty lo each other, and by a com-
biped effort, the great danger of the
teacher's salary and grant being sus-i
bended, will cease to exist. There
is a small item due on the lumber!
for the erection of the building,
which should be cleared, and as the
annual meeting for the election ol
a school trustee takes place on Saturday, June cjth, the occasion is an
opportune one for any suggestions
to clear the debt.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. R.

0. J. Reid and Rob. Kirkpatrick
came in from the Little Robert mine
on Wednesday ..night, and report
highly satisfactory progress made.* A
week ago tbey scoured a lino wolverine,
a rather unique circumstance in connection with whicli was that the bullet ln
its course made four l*,olo3, as Is verified

Much excitement, uot unmixed with
consternation has been excited in Provincial mining circles, by the report
that through faulty sampling and
assaying, recent shipmedts from Lo

A popular poet once remarked that
to havo ono's name spelled wrong in
tho newspapers meant fame. A gent
called on us this week whose appellation was somewhat distorted in the'
Hospital Roport which appeared in'
our last Issuo. He was perfectly docile,
and the editor lives to prod nee anothor
shoot. That his vanity was tickled la
evidenced by tho fact that he loft a
bundlo of job printing Orders for the
"staff" to expehd its latent gohiuS'
upon.
When you get a catalogue from'ono
of tho big eastern or wostern mailing
houses, and you are contemplating a
purchase, put the the air-brake on for
a moment and reflect. Then pay a
visit to your local tradesman, and its
dollars to doughnuts ho can do as well
for you with all your expenses totalled
up. Write to the mail order bouses,
enquiring what they will give towards
town improvements; what subscription
they will give towards tho Miners'
Hospital, the school, and a hundred
and one other things that a local
tradesman has to "dip " (or, Loyalty
must be a strong card with us If we
