The Deal Put Through.
The Rossi nnd Miner says that
\V. II.trt-McU.irg of Rossland returned
yesterday aftei assisting in one of the
most Important mining deals ever consummated in Nelson. He acied as solicitor for the purchasers ofa group of 15
mineral claims on ihe well known iron
ridge constituting the divide belweeu
Anow creek and (loat river, in the Host
river mining division. The property
was owned by C. Plummer Hill. James
J). Sword, Frank \V. Peters. K. J. Matthews, j. Rodiick Robertson, S. M.
Bridges and others, and ihe consideration was $So,coo The new owners ntt'
a syndicate of Montreal capitalists, pre
suniiilily in close touch with IheC. P.R., '
mul represented in this transaction by
William Itl'ikctuoie, miuing engineer.
Mr. Hart McHarg's examination of the
titles to tlu* claims was the final step in
the consummation ol the ileal, which
was negotiated some time siuce.
Referring to the matter the Tribune
snys: "The importance of the deal, Mr.
Blakemore snid, was r,ot to he measured
by tlie money consideration involved,
although il is ii large amount, hut rather
by the elTect which tlie consummation
nt the ileal is likely lo hnve upon the
lutuie developments of the province.
Tlie reports ol the experts, the assays

on the properly, which consists of 15
claims, Imve disclosed the existence of a
continuous body ol high grade hematite
iron ore,   The actual width and depth
ol the ledge hnve not heen determined,
hut sufficient work has been done to
show thnt the hod)' of tjunrl/ite itl which
the ore occiires is from 100 to ai>o feet in
a- (1th, nml the geological formation lav-
irs the conclusion that there can be 110
loubt of its existence at considerable
lep'h. The polity of the ore is oue of
its marked features, Ihe hest assay showing ob per cent of metallic iron, a per
cent silica, ,03 per cent sulphur and a
trace of phosphorus; and the average of
20 assays taken from different parts of
the property gave metallic iron 55 per
cent, silica to per cent, sulphur .05 per
cent ntul phosphorous .01 per cent.
From these figures it will be seen that
the iron is al least equal to Lake Superior hematite in matallic iron, and lower
bulb in phosphorus nnd sulphur.
Whether the pioperty will develope into
a proposition large enough to justify the
establishment of au iron smelter for the
production of pig irou and sleel rails for
local consumption remains to lie determined. The quality of the ore is admir
aide for this purpose, and wlieu it is remembered thnt the best coal and cuke

when the vessel struck and stayed there

A Ureal (iold Camp.
"Perry Creek is destined to be a great
gold camp" and the man who made the
statement is one who should know
whereof he speaks, since he located the
first claim 011 that uow celebrated creek.
It was John Sherwood, and lie has been
digging in on the rich bearing rock of
Perry creek since that time, "The
whole creek is not a mine," said Mr.
Sherwood, '*but where anylhinghas been
found, and work has been done, it has
grown better as depth hns been secured.
That is the case with my property, ami
il is the case with every other property
on lhe creek. Uu my lower claim, just
below what is known as the Young property, I huve opened up two feet of solid
ore, next to the hanging wall, that will
go as high j.'oo a ton. On my upper
claims, 1 find that the lead is widening
out and is just as rich. Tnke the Young
property. They have done an immense
amount of work aud hnve a rich thing,
and they know it. In their tunnels you
can knock off rock anywhere on the fuce
and it will pan out gold. Tbe time is
coining when Perry creek will be heard
of as a gold producing camp. The evidence is growing stronger each year that
we have got the stuff."

the Nelson Miner. Mr. Kobbins enjoys
the distinction ol being the muuuger of

which has oie enough in sight to pay a
