$2 a Year
Tho Town in Not Flourishing*, But
Its Palmy Daya Are
' In Sight.
Two*-of The Best Working Gold
Mines In The Province
Quite Close.  '
The Eagle editor threw aside the
cares and pleasures of office routine a
woek ago, and astride tho back of a
sturdy little yellow cayuso rode to jur
neighboring town of Camborno, tvHti
the express intention of learning bow
" things " were at tbat end of Lardeau's
great free gold belt.
Since our last visit, in June, there
woro but few noticeable changes in the
town, tbo stampede to Poplar early in
the summer having diverted the interest from tbo producing end of the great
gold belt to tho lower end, where the
chances appeared greater to acquire
valuable properties by location. Whilo
however, tbe lown certainly did suffer,
the working ni'mioft properties did not,
and good progress was made ovory day
since our last Visit, and this is evident
at a glance. Upon ;. rrivjr,g in town
one has only to look ahead at thp slopo
of Lexington mountain where two tramways may b'b seen, and if tho day..*.,
clear, tho oro buckets are in view
travelling back and forth between tho
mines and mills. Thon at the base of
the mountain on either side of Pool
creek may bo seen a large substantial
structure, which ou arrival at tho different sites will bo found to he tho stamp
mills of the Great Northern Minos,
Limited, and to the left, the "Eva."
That belonging to the former corporation is most attractive, on .account of
being covered with corrugated iron.
The buildings nro about tho same size,
tho Eva being tho smaller, and the
mills have practically tho same troating
capacity, oach having at presont ten
stamps worldbg,
Tho Oyster Criterion.
The'Great Northern Mines company's
mill at tbo Oyster-Criterion raine, how-
over, is built largo enough so that ton
additional stamps may bo put in plaeu
at the pleusure ot the company, thus
doubling the capacity. This tlio company do not propose to do until tho mino
is sull'teiontly developed to warrant it,
which it is estsmatcd will be ono year
henee. This mill had been running day
and night for about six days with ex.
cellont results, botli astothemaeliinery
and tho amount of gold taken off the
plates each day of 21 hours. The company's assayer, Mr. Iloldloh, was kept
busy testing tha tailings. Theso ho
found to bo remarkably clean of gold,
showing that tho mill is doing good
clean work. Tito concentrates which Is
saved from tho vanners hud not been
tested. As stated in theso columns a
fortnight sinco, tho inlllt'tins perfectly,
tho vibration being scarcely noticeable
In any part of tho building. This, too,
notwithstanding that the air compressor
plant Is also.in tho mill building.
Just hero wo will say in this connection that it would seem impossible for a
compressor plant to work moro satisfactorily than this one, notwithstanding
tho fact that the plant is placed tit tho
foot of tho mountain, and tho air is
forced up to the ntiuo ono and aquarter
miles distant, whero tho drill- aro operated. Not having lied experience in
this branch of mining, wo felt not a
little curious to learn by observation
how tho plan would .York out, for it was
frooly reported about, that certain compressor men had ridiculed the idea of
forcing compressed air from tho base to
tho summit uf a mountain, and it retain'
log the power to rjin tbo drills Mtisfao
torlly. If such nn Incredulous person
should read these lines, we can only invite him to visit tbe works of the Great
Northern Mines, Limited, in the Oyster-
Criterion at Camborno, and lind how
little ho really knows about snell things.
Mr. A. G. Street, who planuod and
built tho mill, will rou-fain with tho
company, and will havo full charge of
mill and compressor, and wo feel confident that a more competent man
would havo been hard to find, cither
during construction or operating.
At tho mine there has been . very
littlo chango since our last report, for
the work of developing was well ahead
last spring, and Superintendent Lado
had the most of his men ou outsido work
during tho summer. Now, however, he
is pushing development work again
with tho old vigor, and be says he will
have no difficulty iu keeping tho mill
running to its full capacity for an indefinite period. As yet tho ore in the
stopes has not beon touched, and the
mill will be supplied yet for some time
from the accumulation on the dumps
that was taken out iu prosecuting
development.
Tha Eva.
At tho Eva mine there are abovo 30
miners employed stoping and developing, and things are going on smoothly
and with excellent results under tbo
ablo management of Mr. Knox. We
wero informed-by manager Knax tbat
the force would not bo materially increased or diminished during the winter. A crosscut is being driven to connect the smaller with the long tunnel,
Tho long tunnel is driven on the big
lead, and when the tunnels aro connected a very large amount of stoping
groune will bo available, enough, it is
estimated, to koop tho mill] running
constantly all winter- At present tho
mill is [ed from the-dunips of ore that
had accumulated during development.
Wo visited tho stamp mill iu company
with the manager, und like tho Oyster
Criterion, mill, it works smoothly anil
perfoctly ; in fact, tho mills were manufactured by tho samo firm, aud thero
is practically no difference, except iu a
few minor details, sueh as different
styles of crushers, and ore sampling apparatus. Tho mill works perfectly,
and the result of thir two months riming has beon most satisfactory, the
oro nveragiog about 89.20 per ton, with
very small cost of treatment, so the profits will bo large, because the capitalization of tho cqraprny is moderate.
Tbe Eva has, as yet, no compressor
plant, so tho ral-ghg has at present all
to bo done by hand power, which makes
mining more costly, but machine drilling equipment will be installed early
in tho spring. Tito aerial tram from
mino to mill works splendidly, like all
of Ui plot's trams.
Tbo Eva mill ran 20 days and 111 hours
in October, yielding 1133 ounces of gold
bull""'., tho estimated value of which
was t?'i,*>00. Tho oro treated during
that time amounted to 703 tons, an a.-
erago of 83.88 tubs every 21 hours. Tho
gold value, without taking luto account
tbat contained in the concentrates, av-
eragod .? ,.2J per ton. Tito distinction
between gold from tbo amalgamating
plates and that from tbo concentrates
is explained thus, aud applies equally
to the Eva and tho Oyster-Criterion
mills:
Tho ore containing tho gold is crushed
to a pulp mt'!' I' the stamps. Then It
passes over Inclined tables coated with
quicksilver. All that gold which is entirely froe from the other materials is
absoibed by the quicksilver. Tlio balance of the pulp passes on from tho tables covered with quicksilver, or atnal-
gatnoiing tables, as they are called, and
goes to oscillating Wllfley tables over
Wblcb clean water is llowittg. The oscillating motion causes tho heavy material in the pulp to settle to the bottom
and lodge behind low ridges or rililes
on tho tables, while the lightor material is washed over tho sides of tho table
by tho water,    The heavy material
works along rililes so tho end of the tables, the surface bblng slightly Inclined
in that direction. There it is discharged and caught in receptacles,
This material is known as tlie concentrates, and contains all the ores, such
as pyrites, carbonates, Sulphides, and
so on, with whicli thc gold is associated
when not freo.
Tho freo gold which has affiliated
with tho quicksilver forms what is
called amalgam. All that ia necessary
to recover it is to place it iu a retort
with a temperature high enough to vaporize tho quioltsllvnr and the gold remains. Tho gold from tho concentrates
is recovered by a moro complex method
and requires more time.
An Able Assembly.
��
A. Ferguson, of Victoria, spent a few
days of this week looking over his interests. Speaking of tho provincial
houso that was in session at Victoria,
ho said ho attended frequently and endeavored to keep in touch with thc business of the province. His improssion
is that the present legislature is composed of men of higher average intelligence than many former ones. He
thinks there is a decided disposition
shown in tho house to eliminate everything of a questionable nature that may
havo crept into former houses, and to
work as ti man for the country's good.
He said further, that many of the members are really able debaters, and for
eloquence and sound reasoning our legislature will compare favorably with
any of the provinces, '.'ho premier,
Hon. II. McBride, he thinks bas shown
the best ability in this rasped..

In Tanghe vs. Morgan Btal.   Action
Dismissed as Against The Great
Northern Mines, Limited,
All Tho  Evidence Is In  and The
Cas? Rests With The
Judge.
Two Alberta Cattle Kings.
F. W. Godsal, a director ofthe Groat.
Northern Mines, Limited, and un extensive cattleman or southern Alberta,
accompanied by A. R. Sprlngolt, manager of tho big Cochrane ranch near
MacLeod, Alta., also heavily Interested
fn tlie Great Northern-Mines, Limited,
have spent the past few days leaking
a careful examination of the company's
properties at Poplar and Camborne.
They came to see how the properties
looked after the ecasqn's development.
To an Eaglo reporter, both gentlemen
expressed pleasure and satisfaction at
what they had seen. Referring particularly to tiie Lucky Jack and Swede
groups, they said they had soon nothing
in print relative to the richness and extent oT tlie values contained in the ore
bodies that would not seem to bo fully
justified by what Is in sight, and w-bnt
is being proven day after day as development progresses. Small forces of
men are employed at these properties,
but the work being done is excellent,
and the ground as it is opened up maintains excellent values.

Friday last, having business at the Imperial bank.
Assessment Act Passed,
Tho case of Tanghe vs. 111. M. Morgan
otal occupied tho snproruo court at
Rossland from Monday till Friday
night of last week, and lhe case was argued on Saturday morning. At the
close of tho argument Mr. Justice Martin directed that a survey bo made of
the.Shatmtock placer claim, as originally located. Until this is received, lie
cannot give judgment. The evidence
brought out was not at all of a sensational nature ; it bore almost altogether
on the staking and location of thn respective lode and placer claims, and tho
part taken in tlie matter later by gold
commissioner Eraser. Quite a number
of witnesses wero examined.
Tangbe's   evidence   described   the
staking of tho Slid ock mineral claim.
on which plaintiff declared ho found
float, boulders of quartz and' gold-
bearing gravel. The operation of bis
claim, Ire continued, would not interfere with work on the Lucky Jack at
tho "bitr showing" of SM' '.''he:' p
tion of the lod'.-e. Plaintiff sald'ho did
uot claim any of the le lg"e or tho mineral bearing quartz down tho hill from
tho "big showing." Tho boundaries
of tho Shamrock placer claim as located showed the Shamrock to extend up
the hill almost to tho extreme limit of
the Lucky Jack. Tanghe asserted that
lie was prevented from operating his
claim by tlie owners uf the Lucky Jack,
and that he had acted on advice in refusing tr, obey tho orders of lhe gold
commissioner as to changing tlio boundaries and posts of tho claim, and admitted that lie was sacking ore with a view
to shipping when stopped and arrested
on October 21.
No other witnessos were called for
the plaintiff, Robert Hedge moved for
the dismissal of tlio ease as against his
clients, the Groat Northern .Mines, aud
the court granted the order. W. A.
Macdonald, K.C., moved for tho dismissal of tho action as against defendants Morgan and Frus* r oo various
grounds, The court reserved to theso
dofondants to renew tho application at
the close of their evidence, anil Instructed the caso to proceed.
Fred Fraser was called on his own
behalf. Ho is gold commissioner for
the Revelstoke mining division, and issued tho order instructing Tangho-to
change his posts on thu placor claim at
issue in tlio action. Mr. Fraser explained at length the location of tho
Shamrock and Luoky Jack claims, especially as to tho placer claim overlapping tho " big showing" on the Lucky
Jack, and slated that danger would follow the permanent fixture of the olaims
lu this way. Ho slated that the two
claims could nol remain as they wero
and bo worked with safety by both parties, glvthg bis reasons for arriving at
this conclusion and for Issuing thc order for tlie removal of the posts on tho
placor claim located by the plaintiff.
Mr. Fraser declared that the ground
located by Tanghe as thc Shamrock
claim was not placer ground, and that
no placer miner could honestly state
that tho ground was honestly staked as
placer ground.
Frank Holten followed (orthedefend-
nnts. Ii is evidence woet to show that
the boundaries of tho Shamrock mineral claim took iu not only thc "big show
ing " on the Lucky Jack, but ground
lying down the hill that had boon pros-
peotsd and worked over by tlio owners
of tbo Lucky Jack. He Continued that
In conversation Tanghe olalmed the
quartz as his property undor tho placer
claim,
-Vra.ndnients Introduce*! by Leader or
opposition Defatted on Division.
Altera very keen debalo whieh [listed well on to two weeks, the assessment
act lias passed third and final reading.
Mr. Macdonald, leader of tho oppdsl
tion. Introduced soveral amendments,
which thc government did not seo Ut to
accent, and they were accordingly da
feated on a division of the house. Tho
business of tlio country is being attended to in good shape, and adjournment
is expected this week until after tho
holidays.
Thc house held an evening session on
Friday last, and a discussion of Mi.
Macdunahl's amendment to tho assessment hill was lirst dra't with. This
was defeated on a party dlvssion, tlie
two socialists and tlie labor member
voting with tho government.
Mr. Macdonald then moved that in
assessing personal proporty, tho
amount of debts against said personal
properly shall bo exempt. This also
was defeated.
Mr. -Mclnnes offered-his amendment
exempting improvements on farm property up to S1.0UU. This was defeated,
and tliu president of tlie council offered
one entitling the farmer tn -it) per cent,
rebate if his farm assessment did not
exceed SI,000. Tho amendment wus
passed.
The premier forecasted tl.e appointment of a commission to no thoroughly
into tho fiscal system, and take inlooon-
sirleratioti the incidence ol taxation.
Just beforo midnight, the premier
gave intimation that banks tint content
with insisting on tiie loan bill passing,
had intimated that the assessment blil
must also pass beforo the lotb. Tliis
raised a storm among tho opposition,
who in that statement found a hidden
revelation of tho roason why liiegov-
erutnent was crowding ihe bill through,
and also why tlie banks, under this bill,
were granted greater privileges than
indU iduals.
Messrs. Drury and Mclnnes denounced
the government for prostituting respon
Bible government at the dictates of an
Institution of the eon titty.
The report was adopted at I2:2(*, the
socialists and labor voting aye. The
house rose at 12:30 o'clock, and adjourned to 2 p.m. Saturday.
The railway assessment bill passed
i'.s third reading and finally passed.
��� Qu report of the assessment bill, tho
I ador of the opposition moved some
amendments, In moving theso amendments, he pointed out what changes th i
government had made witli regard to
taxation or. personal income, and how
i: had been obliged to withdraw altogether the clause relating to the taxation of mines for further consideration.
The goverumont also proposed to tax
Inot only the stook of merchants, bu(
their debts as woll, as no provision was
I made for exemptions equal to tbe
amount of the debts owed on stock,
'   His own proposal was to avoid t.*
'risks which the government took in
launching into new .methods of taxation, and substitute therefor slight increases on lhe old bill.   He blmselfhad
.made some calculations as to the
amount likely to bo derived, aud he bo-
��� Moved it would equal what tho finance
minister claimed lie [would securo by
'bis measure.
Concerning Poplar.
John Caldwell, who owns 22 claims
on Gold hill at tlio second crossing, in
company with our townsman, Wm.
Schnell," is in Ferguson Ibis week. To
an Kit'tii' representative, ho said they
havo n deal on for their property which
they expect, lo go through inside of fl
fortnight, which will net them 820,000.
Mr. Caldwell was strictly a pioneer in
the Poplar rush : ho formed a partnership with W. Schnell, and went into
the hills witli very satisfactory results
to both parties. By Jan. 1st they hope
'tn receive the first payment on Ihe deal.
We feel lhat Mr. Caldwell and partner
aro fortunate in being ablo to put
through a deal so qulokly for their
property.

A WOItKABLH GOVERNMENT.
The McBride government have
demonstrated their ability to carry
on the business of the province by
the passage ot the different bills
that received their third reading during thc past ten days, and tbis also
in the face of determined opposition
under tne able leadership cf Mr.
Macdonald of Rossland.
Many were son*'/ that the government had not a stronger*.majority,
but we believe a small majority, so
long as it is workable, insures better
legislation* Many thought the assessment bill rather a drastic
measure, but though it was well
thrashed out in debate, it yasseel by
a majority of five, tbe government
having first accepted a few changes
that had been suggested as being
beneficial. The bill as a whole has
the appearance of fairness to a majority of the people, and while there
are some clauses lhat appear objectionable, yet an increased revenue
had to be raised somewhere to meet
pressing demands. As conditions
in the country improve, the assessment act can be amended, but for
the time being, it appears to have
been the best measure available.
