The Year's Work
Assessessment work in the camp is
about all completed for the season, and
most of the prospectors have come
down from their claims and gone out to
look for winter's work, in order to be in
a position financially to continue development in the spring. Altogether
ihe season's work has been very satisfactory in so far as the ore bodies
shown up are concerned, but rather
disappointing in the number of claims
taken over by capitalists. This was to
a large extent owing to the unfortunate
litigation over the Lucky Jack ground,
and not a little to the decision of a
supreme court judge in regard to
placer locations. These causes had a
tendency to make capital wary of investing in possible litigation of interminable duration.    For it  has become

never leaves there until one or the other
of the litigants is bankrupt. The
whole procedure is so hedged about
with pettifogging rules that it is almost impossible to bring a case to trial
if one of the lawyers chooses to ob-

struct proceedings. While the Great
Northern Mines, Ltd., has won before
a judge of the supreme court, but although thiee months have passed, the
costs have not yet been taxed, and the
company is in doubt yet as to whether
an appeal will he taken or not, This
tends to retard development on the
company's properties here, and also
to keep capital from being invested in
oilier properties in the district.
Notwithstanding this difficulty with
which the prospectors have had to contend in the way of disposing of their
properties, a large amount of development work has been done during the
past year.
On Tenderfoot the principal development has been on the Klondike group,
which is still working. A tunnel between 8o and 90 feet has been run, as
well as open cuts, making in all over
100 feet of work done.
Between tenderfoot and Rusty a
number of claims have been worked,
but it is impossible to get figures. This
is also the case in regard to a large
number of claims between Rusty and
Rapid, creeks, so the statistics here will
not represent more than 20 per cent,
of the work done during the season.
Mention is only made ol the claims
°f which we have a record.
On the Mornfng group, Rapid creek,
a°out 300 feet of work has been done,
consisting of open cuts and a 50-fool
tunnel, and exposing seven leads, run-
n»"g from 18 inches to 3 feel in width.
phree of these are galena and the other
K)ur free-milling quartz. South of this
'-ewis & Peterson have done considerable open work on extensions to these
,ead»- Schmidt & Rogers have in this
a^d previous years done over 1,000 feet
of work on the North Star gronp.
The ore is free, milling quartz, running
from $20 up to hundreds of dollars to
to the ton. On the Broken Hill, a
group acquired by C. T. Porter last
winter, work has been continuously
carried on during the season. The
work consists of open cuts and a 100-
foot tunnel. Some very rich free-milling ore has been taken out. The
Calumet and Hecla, adjoining the
Broken Hill and owned by Chism &
Hendricks, has been worked all season. There are several leads on the
properly, one 30 feet in width that runs
as high as $100 to the ton in gold.
At the head of Rapid creek is the
Alhambra group, located this season
by D. McRae and C. Diamond. The
work consists of a ib-foot shaft and a
30-foot tunnel. There are two leads,
one galena and the other iron, the former running over $20 in silver and
gold, and the latter $8 to $12  in gold.
Between Rapid and Poplar creeks, a
distance of about three miles, assessment has been done on a number of
claims, but no data can be obtained.   '
On Poplar creek the first and one of
the most important claims is the Lucky
Jaek. It is needless lo go into details
as to values, except to say that #ajue>s
as low as $5 and as high as $100,000
in gold have been had from ihe ore A
drift tunnel has been run 330 feet, a
50-foot shaft sunk, and a number of
open crosscuts run, making in all
about 1,000 feet of work done to date.
On the Home Run a crosscut tunnel
has been run 150 feet. On the Swede
group in the neighborhood of 1,500
feet of work has been done. A write-
up of the Marquis & Gilbert property
will be published next week. Two
hundred feet of work has been done on
the Mother Lode since July. The
Copper King has 70 feet of tunneling.
The Spyglass has done 180 feet of tunneling, 25 feet of an upraise and considerable open work.
The woik east of Poplar creek will
be taken up next week, and also that
north of the Lardo river. It was not
the intention of the writer to take up
this until the end of the year, when a
complete report would have been given,
but owing to change in the business
this would prove impossible. So this
article is not a complete record of the
work done during the season. It
would not be possible in the time at
our disposal to make a complete record
of the work done by between 500 and
600 prospectors during the past season.
Therefore onlv the properties on which
a considerable amount of work has
been done have been touched upon.
LOCAL AND MINING.
The rainy season is right here.
Lou Williams went to Rossland Wednesday.
E. Mobbs, mayor of Gerrard, was a
visitor in town the past week.
Chas.   Hanson of   the Commercial
paid a business visit lo Nelson Monday.
E. L. Morand left on Wednesday to
pay a short visit to his family in Nelson.
The sawmill is working steadily with
a force of twelve men, turning out
lumber for export.
Eric Strand returned Wednesday
from a trip to Trout Lake. He reports
business lively in that town.
George Hambly and Oscar Nelson
went up to Trout Lake Wednesday to
rest in that suburban retreat.
E. Baillie left on Monday for Goal
mountain to inspect the work being
done on the Mammoth group.
J. Littleton and partner of Nelson
came in Wednesday to do assessment
vtmk on xheir Poplar creek claims.
Claience Morgan has resigned ihe
position of assistant postmaster, and
Arthur G. Johnstone now has charge
of the wicket.
Foreman Ward of the Handy group
was in town this week. If is probable
that work will be resumed on the property next month.
Sheran & Cody are driving a tunnel
on the Young Dominion group, Cascade creek; and expect to make a
shipment next month.
J. C. Winter, who has been working
at the Spyglass for the past two months,
came down Wednesday, and will spend
the winter in the Boundary.
The report that the people pf Lardo
were applying for incorporation is without foundation. Lardo is too near
Kaslo to escape all the government
patronage.       	
Big Ole, Long Gust, Little Hans and
Tonald the cook were in town this
week. They stopped at the Frenchman's. Results—Some remarkable
experiments in English.

The Nelson Fair takes place Wednesday and Thursday of next week, the
28th and 29th inst., and from the
prizes offered and attractions advertised promises to he the best ever held
in the Interior of British Columbia.   .
Two shifts are now working on the
Mother Lode, Poplar creek. Since
John Y. Cole took charge, about three
months ago, over 200 feet of work has
been done on the property, consisting
of shaft and  tunnel.    The tunnel, on
which work is at present being done,
is in nearly 150 feet.
R. G. McLeod and Bruce White
came in on Wednesday's train and
went up to the Spyglass yesterday.
Work at the mine is progressing satisfactorily. The cabins will be completed in the course* of another week
and everything made comfortable for
the men during the winter. The upraise from No. 1 to No. 2 will be completed next week. Ore is being sacked
and shipped as fast as the packtraih
can bring it down. Twelve men are
at present employed at the mine.
Diplomas will be offered in the mining department of the Spokane Inter-
slate fair this year. This will add
much in the value of the exhibits of the
mining resources of the country, for it
will be of as much interest to mining
men and those interested in mines to
know of the relative merits of ore
samples from different mines and camps
as it will to know which are the prize
winners in the stock department or the
fruit department. W. A. Coplen, superintendent of the mining department,
is now having diplomas printed which
will be presented to those having the
best exhibits in the different competitions. Diplomas will he giyenJbt Jjie
best specimens of free-milling gold, of
free gold, of wire silver, of copper,
specimens, and so on through the list.
The best judges will be secured to determine the merits of the exhibits and
to award the diplomas.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23,1904.
The Dominion elections take place
in November. Between now and
then should be the harvest time for
editors of the purchasable variety.
Owing to Curiopatkin being busy
moving aad Oyama being just as
busy helping him to move, no news
of importance has been received this
week from the seat of war.
After all that has been written on
the subject by the Liberal press of
the Interior, Bob Green is not going
to build an $8,000 house. Well,'
what if he did build a honse in Victoria? Other cabinet ministers have
done so. If we are not mistaken
Fred Hume, when in the cabinet,
purchased a residence in Victoria,
and no one appeared to think he committed a serious crime by doing §).
Mr. Hume is a Liberal. If it is not
wrong for a Liberal cabinet minister
to own a house, it surely cannot be
very wrong for a Conservative. If
Mr. Green chooses to spend his wages,
or salary, or income, in adding to
the comfort and happiness of his
fomily be should—like any other
wage earner—*be allowed to do so
without criticism. His public acts
are fit subject for criticism; bis pri

Every person in this district will
give W. A. Galliher credit for having
the accounts ot Carlson & Porter, sub
contractors on the Lardo Gerrard
branch, paid by the government.
Even greater credit would be given
Mr. Galliher were it not for the fact
that his law partner is collecting
from 5 to 10 per cent of the face value
of these accounts from the creditors
of Carlson & Porter. It is possible
that Mr. Wilson Is legally entitled to
this privilege, bat at present we are
unable to see how he gets into the
game. It is a well established custom that the client has the privih ge
of selecting his legal adviser and
paying him; in this case, it appears,
the custom has been reversed, and
the lawyer retains the client, paying himself for unsolicited services
out of funds appropriated by the Dominion government for the relief of
creditors of a bankrupt firm of railway contractors. It may be that the
firm of Galliher & Wilson are entitled, to this 10 per cent, rake-off,
owing to tbe efforts of Mr Galliher,
as member of parliament, in inducing
the government at Ottawa to reimburse the creditors of Carlson & Porter; or it may be one of the numerous methods peculiar to the Liberal
party of payment for services rendered. The connection of the partner

ANCIENT MINING.
That the knowledge of mining, and
especially gold mining, dates baek to
a time "when the mind ot man runneth nor. to the conttary," is abund
antly shown by the constant mention
in the most ancient writings. Among
the earliest of these is the reference
to Tubal Cain in the Old Testament,
who is styled "an instructor of every
artificer in brass and iron." This
was before the Biblical Deluge, and
evidently refers to a time of quite ad-
• vanced metallurgical skill, tor they
already had gained the knowledge ol
smelting and of alloys. Alluvial gold
mining must have been vastly earlier
than this.
Perhaps equally earlier are the
records of the clay tablets found in
Nine van, and Babylon, where the
kings of the very earliest dates were
accustomed to receive tribute of gold,
precious stones, etc.
That gold was obtained in India
from time immemorial is evidenced
by allusions to the metal in the Rig
Veda, probably one of the earliest
writings extant of mankind. There
are roterences also in the same poem
to'jewelry and to drinking and other
cups of gold and silver. English
companies have reo|>ened with great
success some of the old Indian mines.
In South Africa, in Matabeieland,
many mines were opered by pre
historic races. Some people believe
these were the mines of Ophir from
which Salomon and the Queen oi
Sbeba drew their stores of tbe precious
metal.
Upon this continent, peoples long
passed away, and of whom the
present race of Indians has not even
a tradition, mined for copper in the
Michigan peninsula, while at coeval
dates other miners in Mexico quarried
obsidian, which when manufactured
into arrow or spear heads, was ex-
c .anged for the copper of the north.
How early this 'lading as done we
may perhaps never know.
Examples need not be multiplied.
Mining always has been and always
will he man's most necessary occupation. Without it. he would have no
tools to carry on other trades and employ ment. Without it man—woraon,
too-would be hard Dressed for articles of ornament, and the stimulus
which gives activity to acquisition—
that, most needful of inciters to ambition-would be woefully lacking.—

mgsare being made. The success
of magnetic or electric concentration
is now beyond question, and it is
merely a matter of getting the right
kind of a machine for the ore to be
treated. Of course, where ample
water is to be had, and there is sufficient difference between the spectfio
gravities of the minerals to be
separated, water Concentration will
hold its place par excellence for many
a long day.—Mining Reporter.
Radium has become the cause ot a
customs controversy. Protest has
been made against the payment of a
25 per cent, ad valorem duty on the
ground that radium is not a chemioal
compound, but as a crude mineral
should be admitted free. A meeting
the United S ates board of appraisers
will be held to consider this difficult
question, and several experts will
testily. The consignment over which
the protest is made is valued at $1030
and weighs only a few grains, so that
even il the importers win their case,
no great reduction in the price of radium is expected.—Mining Reporter.

Magnetic Concentration.
The magnetic system of ore concentration is proving itself capable ot
solving many problems that the old
gravity processes could not touch.
At the same time no one believes that
the magnetic process has other than
a limited application. There can be
no question, however, but that the
magnetic method is receiving a more
and more respectlul attention from
wine owners with difficult ores to
treat.

ihe Bay of Bengal is three hundred feet

along the Pacific coast of South Africa
the sea is often two hundred feet higher
than its lowest surface. The differences
result from the attractive powers of
great mountain ranges.
Since 1850 the  whole  world  practically has gone on a gold standard.    In
that time  the  gold standard has been
adopted by  Portugal,   Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, Chile, Costa  Rica,   India,  Ecuador, Peru, Siam, Russia, Japan and the
United States, and is now the measure
of value the world  over.    Mexico and
China   are   the  only countries  which
still adhere to the silver standard.
A singular phenomenon occurs on the
borders of the   Red   Sea   at   a   place
called Nakous; where intermittent underground sounds have  been heard for
an unknown number of centuries.    It
is situated at about  half a mile distant
from the shore, whence a long reach of
sand ascends rapidly to a height of 300
feet.    This reach is about 80 feet wide
and resembles an  amphitheatre, being
walled   by   low   rocks.     The   sounds
coming up from this  place recur at intervals of about an hour.    1'hey al first
resemble a low murmur, but ere long
there is heard a- loud  knocking somewhat like  the strokes of  a   bell  and
which at the end of about five minutes
becomes so strong as to agitate  the
sand.    The arabs affirm   that the noise
so frightens  their camels  as to render
them  furious.    Scientists attribute the
sound to suppressed  volcanic action—
probably   to   the  bubbling  of gas or
vapors underground.
