Mr. H. J. Baron Tells of his Trip
Through the Lardeau and
H. J. Baron, the travelling cor-
lespondenl ot the Mining Reporter
of Denver, Colorado, has reached
Nelson, after making a tour of the
Lardeau and Slocan mining divisions in the interests of his publication, f '
In speaking about the Poplar
camp to the Daily News, Mr. Baron
said : " My visit to Poplar was full
of surprises. First at finding so
many real good surface prospects.
Secondly at the comparatively small
amount of development work done
in the camp since its discovery. To
the casual observer like myself, the
showings on a number of the properties, notably the Swede group,
Mother Lode and Broken Hill, appear to warrant the expenditure of
money in systematic development
at depth. The condition of things
��� there impresses one with a view
that the claim owners lacked not
only capital but nerve to sink on
their ground. The Swede group is
undoubtedly the biggest showing in
the camp, and from pannings over
an area ot ;;oo feet by 1,200 feet at
a deptii of a few inches to a few
feet, showed large strings of gold.
There is apparently plenty of
material in this exploited area to
keep in operation for some time a
stampmill of from 40 to 100 stamps.
" In some instances, especially in
a 100 foot tunnel 011 the "Swede
group, where a depth of 75 feet or
thereabouts is attained, the shistose
after constituting the rather ill
defined walls of one ol the numerous leads or veins, appears to carry-
good milling values, and even at
the surface at other places the
gold values are not confined to the
quartz leads, lor the partings of
schist pan even more readily. It is
probable, however, that the quartz
will be the permanent ore carrier
with depth, the schist alongside
appearing to have acted as a handy
receptacle for the gold values
leached out of the quartz. Considering the camp's transportation
facilities, and the economical mining
possible (unexcelled deep tunnel
facilities and convenient water power
from Poplar creek as well as from
t,be Lardeau river) it should not be
difficult to secure the necessary
capital for exploiting the properties.
" At Ferguson there is a most interesting practice to be seen at the
Silver Cup mill. The mill is still in
the experimental stage, and it is
too early to safely; predict its commercial success. A mill on very
similar lines using the Dodd buddies
chloridization, pan .amalgamation
arid settling tanks, liks been in successful operation at -the Ontario
mine, Park City, Utah!, for nearly
two years. The ores run on in that
case, however, are proper lead sulpirides, carrying gold .and silver
values. The management informs
me that they are making a; total recovery of 75 per cent ot uhe metal
values, and that the ores run on
has only been the second class ores
ofthe Nettie L mine, which by mixing with the higher grade ores of
Silver Cup mine, can be made to
give up a large percentage of tlieir
metal contents.
" At Camborne I found only one
mill, the Oyster-Criterion, in operation. According to a statement of
mill superintendent Street, a very
high degree of efficiency in gold recovery is being attained. Judging
trom a very hasty visit to the mine,
the ore bodies in evidence would
appear to warrant the immediate
addition of 20 or 30 stamps to this
mill, which is perhaps the best constructed in the Lardeau country.
" Witli the prevailing lead bounty
and the finding of a better market
for zinc the Slocan country may
safely be said to be in a development stage. Deeper mining willbr
necessary. Several mills visited
are turning out good grade ol lead
'and zinc concentrates. The best
method perhaps being that of the
Wakefield jnill. near Silverton.
" In conclusion I would say that
with fairly adequate transportation
facilities, the abundance of timber
and water and the possibilities of
deep tunnel mining, the West Kootenay country should appeal to all
practical bumnjjf men* and capitalists."

The Mohican.
The Badshot mine which was
leased by A. E, Becker to a syndicate composed of Messrs, McLean,
Vipoiid, McLennan and Mills, has
been the scene of great activity for
the past few days. The deal was
only put through on August 22nd
last, and no time has evidently been
cut to waste, as 160 sacks of ore
have been sent to Trout Lake ready
for shipment to the smelter, ln
accordance with the terms of the
lease, development worlc will be
continued along specified lines.
The syndicate above mentioned are
all local gentlemen, and it is very
gratifying to Lardeauites to know
that local enterprise is coming into
its own.
Flathead Line Assured.
Victoria, Sept. 6. ��� Tfie deal for
the building of a railway into the
Flathead oil and coal country was
consummated on Saturday night.
There was a hitch in the negotiations following 'he announcement
ot two weeks ago, but all difficulties
were finally overcome, and arrangements as then made now stand.
The railway company is really
subsidiary to the coal company, and
will build from Flathead to Morrissey. D. C. Corbin of Spokane is
said to be at the back of the railway
A. L. Houston has taken a large
force of men up to this property.
Several pack trains have gone up
heavily laden. The men men are
now employed building cabins, etc.,
and a great amount of development
work will be done.at once.
Another strike of importance to
add still further fame,to the'Lardcau
is to be recorded this weuk. The
above two claims were staked as
recently as August 23rd' last by
Dave Ryan, and he has laid bare
since then a 2 feet showing of high-
grade clean ore on the south wall,
and an 8 foot lead of concentrates
on the north wall. The property is
located on Pass creek, about seven
miles from Ferguson, and is on
the famous Surprise lead. This is
the fourth strike of importance
made on tlie North Fork road during the past few weeks. On the
Surprise group, preparations are
under way for active mining. Bunk
houses are to be at once erected io
accommodate a large force of men,
and the ground is now being cleared
for this object. Ore will be shipped
as speedily as possible. The company owning the property will not
be handicapped fcr timber and

Ore from the Old Go
As a Result of Recent Development Rich Ore is Sacked
for Transport.
The Old Gold mine on the Duncan road which is owned by the
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Co,, Ltd., has been the scene of
active mining, for tlie past few
weeks. Ore is now being shipped
by pack train from the mine, and a
first instalment of 20 sacks brought
down by Cal. Garrison and Ed. Bell
reached Ferguson on Wednesday,
and another consignment was
packed down yesterday. It is
evidently the intention of the management to at once ship to smelter.
It is claimed that the Old Gold has
a very rich surface showing. Lardeauites will be very pleased to
learn that this company is pushing
operations, as it is believed that
a railway will speedily (ollow if it
is proved that the properties along
this route would warrant it.
This property was visited by our
representative on Saturday last.
It is about two miles from Ferguson

From the main road the mine is
reached by a good pack trail which
continues from this point to about
1,500 feet up the Great Northern
mountain. On arriving at the Tonawanda mine we' found that there
was a profusion of excellent mining
timber growing on the property,
and a good supply of water was
obtainable from the creek, which
runs within a few feet ol the mouth
of the tunnel. Cabins and an excellent bunk-house have been erected to accomodate sixeeen 1 men ; a

Steve Slinger returned from Sandon

Mr. A. Dodds, superintendent at the
Triune mine, was in town on Monday
'Twasa great disappointment to the
olllcials of the Lardeau Rovers and to
every local sport that the match at
Sandon as far as tho Rovers were con-
corned was od'on Labor Day. At tho
oloventh hour tho Sandon ollicinls wore
notified of the inability of the local
fobtors to participate in the scramble
for the purse put up by the Sandon
Labor Day came, and with It a marvellous spli It of Independence, Those
who had work to do, evidently forgot
to do it, and Ihoso who hadn't it to do
and didn't want it, were above criticism,
Thero was dn air of muchness about,
and'an extempore tug-of-war witb a
running hoso didn't even whet tho
craving for fun. Something was
needed to fill tho void, and a deputation hiked to tbo Faglo olllco. There
the unfortunate Individual who wots
not of vaingloriousnoss and hypothetical swank was discovered at���at work.
A hurried prayer escaped the''bird"
as the delegates made tl cordon around
It. Tho ponalty Inflicted by the local
celobrationists was a fearful one.
Like a bolt from the���no matter���
We just had to obey tbo mandate aud
challenge Trout Lake to a gamo under
Soc. rules to tako place same evening.
Tho challenge, under great pressure,
was issued, and having finished their
fiendish work, tho " deputation withdrew."
In courso of time were apprized of
tbe acceptance of tbo challenge and
every available grindstone in town
was immediately requisitioned. In due
courso the Trout Lake faction arrived,
in harness, and smiling. The smile
wns infectious, and the "ranks of
Tuscany " let go a rousing choer. No
time was cut to waste, and tho " bird "
was elected captain on tho supposition
that a coin to toss with might be found
in his possession, but that qualification
was uot surface showing, and after
prospecting all tho opposition without
a strike Referee Steiss dug up a quarter
and didn't budgo an inch until it was
returned. Wu lost tbo loss, and things
looked rotten. Johnny Langstaff, of
"Topic" fame was ou tho same wing
opposing tho Fugle, and Johnny whispered chances woro small for anothor
edition of Us.
Couldn't prospect a whistle forthe
referee, so borrowed Dad Black's
dinner bell���what's the diff., anyhow V
Game starts. Wilkie secured and
took tbe bonncerdown the field toward
the Ferguson goal. Someone shouts
finds" and the dinner boll rings.
From the freo kick play of a give-and-
take nature ensued, although tho homesters were taking mora than they wore
giving. The Ferguson team were
kept busy chasing Wilkie, and it was
fortunate for the home team that Sid
Baskott had sueh long arms, as OBN
was playing a three-star game. Kick
outs and throw ins galoro. " Trout
Lako Ball! "���Sure. Lots of good
humour and hard work about: every
man a trior. Billle Crawford was
doing yeoman service for tho viators,
and a hot shot from his right root
made tho upright tremble. From the
rebound the "bird" secured, and
even time to tho Trout Lake citadel
was registered. Franky Soboltsse was
���ailed upon to save a daisy cutter, and
from tho meloo which ensued near the
touch lino, a shot was hooked in, and
lho boll announced a bull. Ferguson
aco in tho holo! After this reverse
the visitors put ln all they knew, and
woro it not for tho excellent defence of
tho home back division thoy would
certainly bave scored. Half-time arrived witb Ferguson ono up and no
one seriously Injured.
Eleven stern faced men from way
under faced tbo rawblders for tbo setoff, and the Ferguson goal was soon In
danger. Wilkio was a team in himself,
and hearts thumped vigorously when
his shots nt goal woro -speeding. Ten
minutes from the re-start Trout Lake
had by superior play completely hemmed the homo forces in, and a yell
of delight and the clang of Big Ben do-
noted tho fall of Port Soapy. Aces up.
For the remainder of the gamo the
play was of a strenuous nature, and
both sides struggled hard for the lead.
Tho visitors kept the ball most of the
timo in the home quarters, and an
occasionally break-away relieved the
pressure. Old Sol was crying quant,
suf. when tho game was callod with
the score standing at 1���1,
