Ferguson, B. C, JULY 22, 1904,
$2 a Year
The geological survey report of
tf.. W. ErOck has been anxiously
watched for by alt mining men interested in the Lardeau, and we are
pleased to' note that a decidedly
favorable report is forthcoming. It
is very instructive reading, and we
purpose, for the next few weeks,
giving a summary of the report
to our readers that they may better
understand the geology and geography of the Lardeau, arid thus be-
corr**      '���'.     cognizant of our* re-
na pointed out in our last issue,:'
the Lardeau mineral belt extends
from Menhiniclc creek to Cascade
creek (43 miles), and has an average
width of 4 miles. Ferguson is situate almost centre of the zone, and
Is the hub of the Lardeau. Mr.
Brock points out that the rocks at
the head of Menhinick, Gainer,
Cariboo and Murray creeks are derived from basjc eruptives, and that
the green and grey schists are in all
probability altered eruptive rocks.
,ln all the mineral zones' (".(-Teen.
yellow weathering rock occurs, frequently schistose and occasionally
developing serpentine. It carries
much lime, and is usually ctlled
dolomite, though distinctly-eruptive
and technically a diabase schist.
Coarse grained porphyritic grano-
diorite occurs up Fish river to the
north.' The oldest rocks correspond
to the Slocan series of West Koot
enay. The sedimentary series is
much cut up by granitic intrusive
rocks and highly metamorphosed
The green schists are important on
the Lardeau river, and below Camborne. The band of these schists
extends southeasterly, crossing
Beatrice mountain, the Nettie L.
and Silver Cup, crossing the Lardeau river at Tenderloot, and extending to Poplar.
DEVELOPMENT  OF THE DISTRICT,
The Lardeau country has been
recognized as a mineral district for
some time. Claims were located
near Comaplix on the Northeast
Arm as far back as 1888, and the
Lardeau itself was prospected and
staked ten years ago, From that
time on, prospecting has continued
and the development and opening
up of the district have gone slowly
forward.    But the district has
NOT RECEIVED AS CAREFUL ATTENTION
FROM EITHER PROSPECTORS OR MINING MEN AS ITS MINERAL INDICATIONS
would warrant. Several causes
have attributed to this. The rugged
nature of the country, isolation and
consequent distance from smelters
have made it impossible to handle
anything but. the richest ores ; prospectors decided that it was a silver-
lead district only, and searched for
nothing else; the depression in the
silver-lead markets had a strong retarding influence on the young undeveloped district'; '���flany claim
owners in view of * the high assays
obtainable and regardless ot the
gnat coit of mining and transport''
ing the, ore, held their claims at
prices that were prohibitive in an
undeveloped district where so many
natural difficulties had to be overcome. However, the district is
now easily accessible and, in many
parts, well opened up with roads
and trails which greatly facilitate
prospecting. A number of claims
are now opened up, and provided
with the means for handling ore,
and in some cases treating it on the
spot. With the successful operation of these and the recent discoveries of rich gold ores on Poplar
creek the past summer, it is to be
anticipated that the district will
soon receive more careful attention
from  both prospectors and mining
MINING  BELTS.
;:
Mineral occurs througheut th
l:ngth ofthe Lardeau district, principally along three belts,.a,.southwestern zone on the south-west side
of the valley and toward the granite
contact,, a ceo'"**' ���"�������� stretching-
r.uiii me north-west of Camborne
to south-east of Poplar, its south,
eastern limit not yet determined,
and the lime-dyke zone stretching eastward Irom the Fish river
across the head of Lexington and
Pool creeks and along and near the
Iahde.-.t! Duncan Divide, its northwestern and south-eastern limit not
yet determined. Some mineralization occurs outside1 these zones, but
these constitute the main lines of
mineralization. The ores occur in
the sedimentary rocks, viz., slates,
phylites and limestone, and in the
rusty-weathering diabase schists,
but no important mineralization was
observed in the green schists or
irruptive rocks, except in a few individual cases. The mineral-bearing zones are characterized and may
be recognized by dykes of the yellow-weathering diabase (the larger
more coarsely crystalline dykes do
not produce this yellow coating so
readily) whirh divide the sedimentary rocks into bands of varying
width. The vein occurs along,
near, and in the dykes. The veins
have two principal directions, approximately parallel to the strike ot
the rocks, and nearly at right angles
to it. They are usually almost vertical, but vary in the direction of
their dip. They are of a composite
fissure type. Their direction is
largely determined by that of lis
suring, but besides fissure filling
there has been considerable replacement of the' country rock. In
places, to some extent the bedding
planes or the rocks have also been
utilized tor the deposition of ore.
The veins have been formed by
aqueous mineralizing solutions
which have apparently brought up
their load ot mineral matter from
below. The character of the ore is
not directly dependent upon the
nature of the country rock. Small
horses and inclusions of country
rock are often numerous in the
leads. The relationship ofthe dykes
to the deposits seems to have been
largely physical ��� determining the
direction and circulation of the ore-
bearing solutions, though perhaps
the iron and carbonates of the dykes
may havo been reached chemically
with the ore-bearing solutions. The
Veihs may have a connection with
the? granite intrusion, as some ot
the quartz veins have characters le-
sembling those of the acid series of
pegmatite dykes. The magma Irom
which these pegmatites were formed
became more acidic and aqueous as
distance from the parent granite
was gained, and the gangue of the
veins is often rich in feldspar and
sencite as well as in quartz. According to mineral contents, the veins
can be roughly divided into two
groups, the silver-lead veins, rich
in metallic sulphides, and the gold
veins poorer in these sulphides.
Except in this one respect the veins
are very similar. The silver-lead
veins carry gold vakies and are
sometimes rich in gold. The relationship to the two classes of veins
is not clear : theyj/may be of tho
"-.(same age, and. may have been
formed by the slime processes, On
the Criterion, a galena vein is
youn^e** tlian o"�� quartz vein, but
may be older than a*' second ; there
is some ground for the opinion that
they are closely related and they
may have been formed during the
same general period of mineralization. The vein-stone is quartz with
some calcite, siderite, leklspar, and
a little sericite. The metallic contents are galena, blende, tetrahe-
drite, copper and iron pyrites, ar-
senapyrite, argentite, native silver
and gold. The veins are found on
the highest summits and in the
deepest valleys. The largest number of locations have been made at
the higher elevations, probably on
account of the better exposures.
On the lower slopes and in the
valleys the difficulty of prospecting
is greatly increased by wash and
vegetation. Mining in such locations, however, can be carried on
at a lower cost. The values are
not evenly distributed, but are
localized in chutes. They are often
concentrated round carbonaceous
rock inclusions and along carbonaceous wall-rock and sometimes in
it. Some sulphides, particularly
zinc blende, are often a good indication jof values. Chutes are generally located at the intersection of
veins. Other indicators of values
will no doubt be found when further development has been done.
A particular effort should be made
to find, if possible, a key for recognizing pay quarlz by the naked eye
where the values are in fine gold.
The indications are that values
will continue in depth ; they are
unchanged to the deepest level
reached in t|ie Silver Cup ; the
richest mineral, tetrahedrite, is one
of the first formed, and blind leads,
which cannot liave been affected by
surface enrichment, carry ore as
well as outcropping leads ; and the
horizontal Veins have the same
characters as the vertical ones.

Rossland Miners' Union
Lose the Day.
Damages to tho amount of $13,(300
havo beon awarded against tho Rossland Miners' Union et al in favor of
tho Centi'o Star Mining Company in
tho latter company's suit in tho
supremo court of British Columbia.
Tho jury arrived at tho decision last
Saturday evening. 'Tho verdict carries
costs in the cause and of the litigation
for tho past threo years. The aggregate of these costs is certain to bring
thc total bill which the union antl
other defendants will be required to
pay to a total of not less than $20,000,
unless tho defendants succeed on
appeal.
In addition to its local interest, thc
verdict is of far-reaching importance
because of its probable iniluence upon
the conduct of strikes throughout
Canada in tho future. Tho decision
stands as a precedent throughout tho
Dominion, tho point in issue not having previously been threshed out in
Canadian courts.
The jury found that the Kossland

ation ot Miners. Kossland branch, Rupert Buhner, W, S. McDonald, Prank
VVoodside, W. G. Preston ; the Carpenters and Joiners' union, Peter McDonald, Jdhn McLaren, T. M, Beamish

the plaintiffs and oilier mine owners of
Rossland.

The Goldfinch stamp-mill, which
has turned out several thousands of
dollars in gold bricks, but which has
been lying dormant since last January, was started again today at its
profitable occupation, under the direction of J. T. Volger
A number of men are working at
the property, operations being confined to a surface showing, from
which rich gold values have heretofore been obtained. The ore now
being taken out is fine looking .stuff
and it is almost assured that the
Goldfinch will turn out a creditable
gold brick at the end of the month.
A. K. Rosenberger, who is in
charge of the property, intends to
thoroughly exploit and develop it,
and prove that the Goldfinch is a
property worthy of attention. Considerably more work has been done
this summer on claims in the vicinity ol the Goldfinch than during any
previous season, and all of them
have shown up exceedingly well.
These developments will no doubt
spur t|ie Goldfinch people to greater
efforts, and it is quite possible that
within a short time, other properties
in that section will be the scenes of
active mining, and the thud ol falling stamps will replace the echo
made by the clash of hammer and
drill as the persistent prospector
progresses hopefully will*, his annua!

Little Essays of Life.
It has just leaked out that Clark, the
millionaire western mine-owner, has
been married three years to his ward.
There is an element of looal interest
about Senator Clark, since ho has large
mining interests in British Columbia.
Clark was known as ono of the most
daring mining operators ln the world.
Ho was shrewd enough to make millions in lighting'sueh men as Marcus
Daly, James Flood and Tabor. He
was not proof, however, against thu
wiles of a girl 3.1 years his junior..Miss
LaChappelle, his young wife, U a
French girl. They have boen married three year*,. In accumulating
his enormous lortune he has exhibited
bravery, but lie was not courageous
enough to tell his daughters of his
second marriage. A woman will eon-
tract a second marriage and bu proud
of it, but foi'*">ine roason men seem it
bit shy. Above all other considerations a man **eeins to hate to announce
his second marriage to his lirst wile'!
children. It is not singular thon that
the old millionaire showed tbe lion in
amassing a great fortune, but showed
the rabbit when it came to a second
marriage.���Calgary Herald.

THE LARDEAU OF THIS PAST.
Every (nail brings requests lor
information concerning the Lardeau,
and we endeavour, as lar as in us
lies, to answer the hundred and one
interrogations. We wish it go'
forth from this office that we intend
treading the straight and narrow
path, and trust that our efforts will
be appreciated���3s they inevitably
must be by everyone with the true interest ot the camp at heart. Therefore, as confidence begets confidence
we shall dole out the truth, and if
those, who by their questionable
tactics have left the richest spot in
Canada in disgrace, come under
o��r ban, we shall chuckle at them
in the pillory. Everybody in the
Lardeau knows well enough the
reason why the investor is holding
his cash down. But the average
investor must be told, and that
often, that he must know with
whom he trades. There are a certain class of men at large, who
at the first boom of a camp, rush to
the spot, stake a claim, and the
next day a " mine " is sprung upon
an unsuspecting public. Again,
others, too la?y even to stake a
claim, buy from a prospector who is
prepared to back up any assertion
or act of the promoter. Consequently the wild cat is bought for a
mere song���as good properties are
not being sought, and the honest
property, with a honest price put
upon it by a honest owner is left to
freeze out. But' the latter sit tight.
The wrong 'tins have long since
taken their departure, but they have
lelt behind' a blot which time alone
can efface.
With time, lhe trail of the skunk
will evaporate; every day we shall
see evidences of the truism taking
effect. We shall live all that down,
and take our place at the head of
the mining industry. Read the
geological report on the Lardeau
by R. W. Brock, and no sane man
after perusal will wonder at us
showing just pride for our inheri
tance. No one will question that
we have in the Lardeau some extra*
ordinary large dividend payers. In
Ferguson we have three of the
richest mines on the continent, and
the success of the companies opera-
ting is the outcome of a honesty of
purpose backed by the finances of
people of integrity. We have some
grand properties, practically within
a stone's throw of Ferguson, and
capitalists will do well to investigate.
But willing as we are to answer enquiries through the post, it would
please us, and be more beneficial to
all concerned, were the investors to
come right to Ferguson and view
our vart resources.
DUNDONALD INCIDENT AND THB
CHOICE OF FISHER*
The following is amusing enough
to satisfy anybody,' but the regrettable choice of Ml*. Fish., will tend
to make Canada the recipient of
many jfcers. We trust the results
of his handiwork have come home
to him ere this, and'that the lesson
has been taken'to heart. Cabbages
will now receive the attention of
Mr. Fisher, and' the military ardor
of the cornstalk will, we trust,
predominate only in his back garden
among the vegetables, where he
will find a more congenial occupation..
Toronto, July 14. ���An Ottawa
despatch to the Toronto World
says:. "T\ko officers whom Mr.
[���fisher was instrumental in having
appointed tp the Scottish Light
Dragopns hav(e turned out anything
but creditable to lhat corps. One
of them turned up at a recent camp
with a pair of gaiters on and small
box spurs fitted upside down. He
also had two swords, one at each
side^ and to complete his pictur-
escjucness, he carried a beautiful
black eyes. He was sent home.
The other had not been long in
camp .--(hen he was fiped 3?o -for a
civil offence,, and it was for these
two officers lhat Mr. Fisher, by his
meddling, got rid of the best commanding officer Canada ever had."

Last Saturday the editor-printer-devil-
financier rubbed shoulders with an old
friend from tho little island off the
coast of France���which holds a village
called London. Walter Edwards,
hunter and trapper, traveller, explorer
and ehof���used tho same doorstep and
found shelter under the same roof
as tho writer while he was struggling
for an existence in the "smoke." Walter has stories (o tell of disturbed
slumbers by tEe midnight squawk of
tho Eaglets, who are now big enough to
offer the old man their left-off pants
and knock the L out Walter.
We had a certain amount of satisfaction in relating a story in a previous
issue of a. parson and a printer. The
printer could'nt pay his debts, as all
bis subscriber were deadheads, and, on
tho aside, all members of tho parson's
congregation. Tho parson prayed for
tho printer, but the parson didn't, know
his congregation wero on the hummer,
and now he's up against It himself. In
taking permanent leave of his congregation, the parson said: "Brothers
and sisters, I have como to say goodbye. I don't think God lovos this
church, because none of you ever die.
I don't think you love one another becauso I never marry any of you. 1
know you don't love tho printer, I
don't think you love me, because you
havo'nt paid my salary; your donations are mouldy fruit and wormy
apples, and by thoir fruit yo shall know
them. Brothers, I nm going away to a
bettor placo. I have been called to bo
a chaplain in a penitentiary. Where
I go ye 'cannot come, but I go to prepare a place for you, and may the Lord
havo mercy on your souls.   Good-bye."

fae the men becoming more elegant ?
4 number of years ago wben a man's
pants were too short and his hose coyly
peeped in view, it was of the gray yarn
and ugly enough to make the dogs
bark. Now the fleeting visions obtained
of men's hosiery are more gratifying.
They are wearing pretty hose, as pretty
as worn by the ladies. Sutherland and
McKinnon stock the pretty and the ugly
Hosiery.
