Between Gerrard  and. Kaslo, a distance of about 55 miles, there is a continuous mineral   belt   from   10   to 15
miles in width, on which locations h.ive
been made, some of them six years ago.
The earliest  locations were, of course,
copper or silver-lead,  as until the past
summer,   when  the  rich strikes   were
made on Poplar Creek,  more by accident than from any  other cause.    But
when the  high  gold  values  were obtained on   Poplar,   prospects were soon
located in every   part   of the district.
Much of the territory was of course run
over,  and  stakes  planted   where ever
sufficient  mineral  could  be  found on
which to make a location.
Orphan   Boy.     The   owners   of  the
claims Messrs. F. Kaiser, C. VV.  Hart-
man, Aug. Buffalo,  A.  O.  Ostby and
Theo.   Dufresne,  intend  to   syndicate
and do the development  on the whole
group at  one point.     The  main lead
runs   through   the   Defiance,     Royal
Prince, Royal  Crown and   Mammoth.
This is four  feet  in  width and carries
high values in gold, with  a  small percentage in copper.    The lead lies between porphyry and  schist.     Surface
work has been done on all these claims.
On the Royal  King and  Orphan Boy
there is also a four foot lead which carries high values.

About   ten   miles   from   Poplar,   on
Meadow Creek are agroup of claims—
six  in   number—known  as  the Great
Britain group on which  between seven
and eight thousand  dollars  have been
expended in development.    This group
is owned by Greenhow and Larkin, the
former a   Montana  mining   man  and
the latter of Spokane.    The claims are
crown granted.    About 300 feet of tunneling and sloping  have been   done.
There are two leads on the group, one
4 and the other 12 feet in width, catry-
ing gold,   silver,  copper and  lead, a
sample from which sent lo the Spokane
fair assayed  $155  in all  values.    On
the same lead Joseph Carton and J. VV.
Power own   four claims,   the Hidden
Treasure, Last   Chance,   Copper  King
and Mountain View.    On this group a
tunnel has  been   run  103 feet, besides
crush-cutting  on    the   surface.      Also
the North   Star  fraction,  on the same'
lead, located by Carton, but since transferred to J. W.   Power,   of McGuigan.
Mr. Canon  also owues a one-half interest in three claims south  of and adjoining  the  Mammoth,  of the  Great
Britain group.    The lead runs through
two of them.    There is another lead
running at   right  angles  lo  this and
carrying high values  in gold.    Development consists of a tunnel 97 feet and
open cuts.
About two miles below this group,
on Meadow Creek, Andy Erickson
made locations some six years, ago on
a lead assaying frOm $10 to $52 in
gold. The formation in all these
groups is a contact in schist and
granite.
On the middle branch of Cooper
Creek, on the pass going to Whitewater, a lead of copper bearing ore has
been located carrying a good percentage in values and is about 20 feet in
width.
The Kokanee group, on the divide
between North Meadow and Cascade
Creek, is another promising group,
which has been crown granted, and
carries silver-lead values.
W. F. Teetzel has purchased from
Frank Carlson and Simon Plaff, the
Golden West and the Crown King mineral claims in the Poplar creek section.
They are located only a short distance
from Poplar and adjoin the Sweede
group on the north and are next to the
Walker and Carlson Group. The price
paid was a good sized one and the payments run over a period of nine months.

Larry Hickej came in Monday from
the beconJ Crossing. He had a number of samples from the Maple Leaf
and Shamrock claims, owned by himself and Jas. Delartey. On the claims
are three leads, one a free-milling ore
and the others galena. It is the intention to work the ptoperties all winter.
The claims are about a half mile from
the Second Crassing.
B. Crilly, assistant manager of the
Gieat Morthern Mines, came in on
Monday and left for Camborne on
Wednesday. All the properties of the
company are showing up well with development. Although the mill at Camborne has not been working on the
richest ore, it is expected the clean-up
will be a good one.
Next week development will be commenced ort the Royal group o( clarms

On the group of placer claims south
of the town the shaft is now down 25
feet. It is expected that bed-rock will
be reached in the next ten feet. Some
very rich specimens of float have been
taken out, and considerable fine gold
has been found in the last five or six
feet.
Prospect work is being done on the
Swede group at about 300 feet below
the apex of the lead with excellent results. Fifteen tons of ore were shipped
this week to the company's stamp
mill at Camborne.

was placed at $1 per annum.
A vote of thanks was tendered Mr.
Keen for his efforts as official head of
the Provincial association, in bringing
to the notice of the government the requirements of the mining camps of the
interior.
The local branch bids fair to become
one of the strongest in the province,
and there is no doubt but that much
good can be accomplished by every one
joining and giving their support to the
officers of the organization.
The membership will be in the hands
of Mr. E. L. Masterson, the secretary,

THE MAN WITH THE  PACK.
The prospector has a nature that is
heroic. He abandons the comforts
and luxuries ot home and civilization
and with a pack on bis back he
he plunges into the wilderness in
search of treasure. He spends the
best part of his life fighting the ele
ments, dodging silver tips, and buck
ing the evil effects of doughy bannocks and mildewed sow belly.
Once in a while he blazes a trail that
leads many to fortune, while too
often his share of the wealth is dissipated swiftly against the three things
that gild every camp with a touch ot
hell. No government officer, or city
mining paper warns him that he is
taking awful chances against an
untried formation. Oh, no; they
have nothing to do with the poor
prospector. When he does discover
a country that shows unmistakable
signs ot natural wealth, they too
often deery his offorts towards inducing capital to assist the good
work that he has commenced. Possibly afraid that some fat millionaire
might lose a few dollars in developing a claim that would pinch Such
officials and papers are willing that
the poor prospector should take all
the risks and then be damned tor attempting to sell their property.
EDITORIAL NUGGETS.
The legislature has 'Jshut up" for
the holiday season.
The Nugget is not getting out a
special holiday number thin year,
but copies of ''Float" can still be had
at 50 cents each.
Peace and good will is a very nice
sentiment, but with a Dominion election coming on in a few weeks, it is
just as well not to be too outspoken
in our praise of those of a opposite
political faith.
Now that the Nelson Tribune predicts the expulsion of two members
of the McBride government from a
secret organization, it is difficult to
determine where the Houston "incident will end. A bas the perfidious

John H. Tonkin, late manager of
the Crow's Nest Goal company, appears to have the happy faculty of
keeping his name prominently before
the public About a year ago he was
having bouquets thrown at him by
the papers of British Columbia because he kept a gain* of detectives
watching the company's mines. Now
he is receiving free puffs from the
same source because the detectives
are trying to get within watching
distance ot him.
Duncan Ross, publisher of the
Greenwood Times, is one of the candidates for the Liberal nomination in
Yale-Cariboo. The other two candidates are lawyers. The Nugget
favors Duncan, the man from Bruce;
not because he is a Liberal, for
he is that by heredity; not because
he is an editor, for he is that on account of a natural inclination to
benefit mankind; but because he is a
good judge of oatmeal. If elected,
Mr. Ross will make an able and conscientious representative.
Now that the "peace and good
will" season has arrived, the Nelson
Conservatives might arrange for another convention.
Hon. Clifford Sifton will doubtless
consider his Christmas dinner a very
cheap affair in view of another contest in Brandon constituency.
The meeting Friday night to form
a branch of the Provincial Mining
Association was all that could be desired in both numbers and enthusiasm.
New Wertminster has an artesian
well. Any one who has been there
in the winter season might reasonably
consider an artesian well the least of
the necessities of that city.
The Nugget wishes a Merry Christmas to all its subscribers who have
paid; to all who have subscribed and
haven't paid; • and also to those who
haven't subscribed and wouldn't pay
it they did subscribe.
The B. C. Mil.ing Record roars
about Pool's methods ot conducting
his business, but it fails to tell of the
many weary months he spent in
prospecting the Lardeau, and the
many men in Revelstoke, Calgary,
Macleod and other places who are
rich today trom their belief in Billy
Pool. A paper that knocks those who
are using exery effort to make something ot this very rich country befouls its own bank account; and sows
within itself a germ that will eventually push it over the dump.
The Nugget is still $2 a year.    No
one can afford to do without it.
Few men are appreciated until they
take up their resilience in a  cemeterh.
Fortunate is the man who doesn't
have one-half the trroubles his neighbors think he has.
