Some nice nuggets were panned by
Bob Devvar this week from gravel at
the boltom of the placer shaft.
VV. Holloway and Ollie Chapman
left Wednesday to commence work on
their Meadow creek properties.
Development work is progressing on
the Hemlock. Three open cuts have
been run, exposing a free-milling lewd
from 12 to iS inches in width.
George Hambly and Arthur Gowing
captured a very valuable fraction the
past week. It lies between the Swede
group and the Morning Glory, and is
said to be about three quarters of a
claim.
It was reported in town that the
second payment had been made on the
Buffalo group Saturday last at Kaslo.
Aug. Buffalo went to Kaslo Monday,
so it is probable that the payment has
been made.
Geo. W. Vogel, of Seattle, who has
an option on the Joker and Thelma, is
expected in next week, when work
will probably be commenced: These
claims lie between the Home Run and
Swede group on Poplar creek.
Jasper King and E. Harrop will commence work next week on their claims
near the Second Crossing. The group
consists of four claims, the Kentuck,
Gold Dollar, Diamond and Gold Bug,
and lie southeast of the Buffalo group.
M. Kerliu of Sandon came in this
week and will shortly commence work
on the Silver Glance, a galena proposition, adjoining the Lucky Jack and
Bertha K. The lead is about two feet
in width and carries gold as well as
silver values. Mr. Kirlin was one of
the pioneer prospectors of the Slocan.
The Lundgrcn brothers, Ole Berg-
lund and Phil Nordenson have commenced work on the Lardo King group
at the Second Crossing. There are
two large leads on the group, one 30
and the other q feet wide The work
already done consists on a 20-foot shaft
and a 15-foot tunnel. The group comprises six claims, and last fall the owners refused $80,000 for the group.
The proprietors of the Poplar hotel
have put an ore cabinet in their bar.
This should be done by all the hotels,
as travelers could then see at a glance
ore from the different properties in the
camp. It is not necessary to have
nuggets in the cabinet. Nuggets are
"H right for a tenderfoot to look at, but
a mining man wants to see an average
sample of the ledge, and the larger the
better the advertisement   for the camp.
Rustling appears to be the order of
the day. Snow claims are being located all over the camp Some prospectors have more claims staked than
they could do assessment work on in a
hundred years, and are  still  locating.
The day of wild-catting has passed in
British Columbia. Mining men won't
buy anything that they can't pound a
drill into, and promoters won't put a
drill into anything if they can possibly
avoid k. All the promoter wants is
surface assays, and the sucker will do
the rest.
The following letter was received this
week  from John   Y.   Cole of Seattle:
"Referring   to   your   recent  issue,    1
must thank you for the way  in  which
you  treated  the  communication  f oin
Rossland anent myself and  the Lucky
Jack   Mining   company.     Any   stock
which   I   have sold in Seattle has been
on the representation of the  properties
owned  by the  company  being simply
prospests,   and   as   a  mining  man  of
some experience, 1 have every faith and
reason  to  believe   that   with  development   these  claims  will prove to be as
valuable as  any  in   the   Poplar  Creek
camp.      All   mony  obtained   will    be
honestly put in the ground."
The second payment on the Spyglass
group of claims, located at the head of
Poplar creek, consisting of $2,000, was
made yesterday. The payment was
made to John Winquist of Poplar, from
whom the property was purchased last
November by R. G. McLeod on behalf
of the Spyglass Mining and Development company. The payment was
made through the Trout Lake City
branch of the Imperial Bank of Canada.
The total ol the purchase price is
$35,000 and the next payment will be
made on August 1st. By that time the
company expects to have a good sized
force at work on the properlx and to be
taking out rich ore from the main ledge.
Mr. McLeod is the secretary-treasurer
of the company, and has charge of the
office in this city. He sa)S that James
Mageeofthe company is in St. Paul,
and that Bruce White is in Duluth.
Both these gentlemen have sent in
large orders for stock and have disposed of some very large blocks.—Nelson Daily News.
Pattinson-Husby.
At the home of Dr. Morrison, Silica
street, Nelson, on Saturday, the 2nd
insl., a cermony was performed by Rev.
Mr. Ross, Presbyterian, which united
for better or for worse Joseph Pattinson
and Fredica Antonette Husby, both of
Poplar. This is the first couple resident of the camp to enter into a life
partnership. Both are popular and
have the best wishes of every one in
camp for a long and happy life. They
will make their home in Poplar, in the
residence now being built on Poplar
avenue, Lucky Jack addition.

THE GREAT CINCH.
The Canadian people crave millions in acres and dollars in order to
assist the Canadian Pacific railroad
in business, and give if, a chance to
use the cinch, and make or break
towns or people. The railroad should
serve the people, and instead of being
slaves the people could easily become
roasters if their upper stcpes were
lighted by common sense. The Ca
nadian Pacific plays the cinch equally
as well as a hold-up man with the
drop on >ou fYou cannot move without taking an awful risk. Its action
towards the town ot Poplar is a disgrace to the modern methods of do
ing lusiness, and worthy of general
condemnation, if the track was
torn up and a wagon road built to
Kootenav lake the camp would have
a chance for its commercial life. It
has been choked by Canada's greatest
cinch until even the saffron colored
rocks cry aloud tor salvation, but you
might as well plead to a stone god as
to the soul of a corporation, tat with
the gifts of a nation and entrenched
in a castle bail*, bv the hands ot a
confiding public. You might as well
ask a hyena to a pink tea as to ask the
C. P. R. for even a telegraph office
in Poplar. For ten months this camp
has been the talk of the golden world
but the great cinch has made no
effort to help the trail blazers build
up the country. The way of a man j<
with a maid may be wonderful, but
the way ot the C. P. R wit i Poplar
passeth all understanding, and does
not harmonize with the peace of Gud
by several inches.
Seek to mingle gentleness in all your
rebukes; bear with ihe infirmities of
others; make allowances for constitutional frailties; never say harsh things
if kind things will do as well.

When the drifts were finished big
wooden doors were hung at each in

they shut off any draft that might
fan the fire and also prevented the
hot gases from spreading to other portions of the mines. But still the fight
goes on. From the St. Lawrence the
fire has spread to the Anaconda and
Neversweat mines. It has embraced
an immense territory. Men who are
fighting the tire work but six hours a
day, and at that few are anxious for
the job It has been found in certain
places on the outskirts that the copper has been taken from the rock and
precipitated in great solid chunks of
pure metal. If the flames are ever
wholly extinguished they will leave
millions of dollars' worth of copper
ready for the market. But that the
fire will ever be totally extinguished
seems improbable to those who have
fought it so many years. If the miners can keep the flames confined to

It is conservatively estimated
that the big mining companies have
annually expended in that time
$88,000 in fighting the combustion,
and today it is privately admitted
that their efforts have been futile,
further than to confine the burning
to a restricted area.
Some day, it is the optimistic hope
the fire will die out. If that timo arrives a veritable fortune is expected
to ba gatheivd. The flames have
been feeding upon sulplur and other
elements in the ore. The heat ha?
been so intense, experts sav, that
foreign matter has been burned
away, and almost pure copper has
been precipitated Some dav when
this product ot natures smelter can
be reached will come an output of
cop|>er such as the world has never
before witnessed.
Men who work in the mines under
Unite know of the big fire, especially
1 hose whoso dutv it has been to check
the spread ol the c tnbustion. The
Montana press, controlled as it has
ben by mining interests, has care
fully avoided mention ' fthe immense
conflagration.
Did you ever fteht fire 2,(XX) feet
underground? Did you ever stand
in a tunnel of s- lid rock In the bowels
of the earth, with no voice toe mf >rt
or cheer you and light an unseen fife
until the sweat poured in streams
down your body—until \our head
reeled and only a grim resolve to
stand by vour post saved you from
total collapse? Such is the experi
ence of manv men in Butte.
Yet not a* day passes that brave
men do not risk their lives in fight
ing fire thousands of feet beneath the
streets of that city. How did they
start? Years ago a c.ireless miner
whose identity has been forgotten in
the excitement which followed, left a
candle burning on a piece of timber
burning in one of the lower levels oi
the St. Lawrence mine. The men
on the next shift were met by choking \0lume8 ot smoke on going into
the shaft to work. The./ rang the
danger signal, the engireers hoisted
them out of the burning hole, and
from that day to this the tight with
the underground fire has been an
endless struggle for the Anaconda
Copper Mining company.
Marcus Daly then owned the big
•nines, and he found a man who
thought he could successfully fight
the fire. This was Jack O'Neill.
Daly made O'Neill mine superintend
ent because ot his fire fighting plans,
a position he still retains. First they
tried to use water. An explosion
followed which, fortunately, cost no
lives. The miners had an awful time
drilling in the hot rock. As each
hole was drilled it was supplied with
then Butte will lie above a world of
white hot slag—a veritable hell ot
heat.

THIS AND THAT.
In last week's issue W. A. Macdon-
ald was accused of been the provincial
Liberal leader instead of J. A.
The Canadian Magazine is authority
for the statement that a syndicate is to
be formed which will control the cabinet
appointments in Canada. The names
mentioned as promoters are Fielding,
Emmerson, Fitzpatrick,Fisher, Mulock,
Sifton and Templeman. The object
of the syndicate is to dictate the policy
of Liberal papers in each province and
through them control appointments to
the cabinet. The cash, $5,000,000,
will be furnished by railway magnates
and wealthy senators. No overtures
have yet been made to the management
of this paper to take a hand in cabinet
making, but The Nugget will be found
right in line in any fair distribution of
that live millions. And the Liberal
party must purchase brains, for all the
brainy men are leaving it. When
Senator Temdleman approaches The
Nugget on the cabinet question he will
be treated with the courtesy due to a
man who has $5,000,000 behind him.
That Poplar district and the Lardeau
generally has a very poor postal service
cannot be denied, It is the only part
of Canada where the most tardy means
available are used to transport mail
from one point to another. The Nelson
Daily News forwarded to agents over
the C. P. R. line arrives here two days
earlier than the same paper sent
through the mails. The reason for
this is that the mails, instead of being
sent direct from Nelson to Lardo by
the C. P. R. steamer, are forwarded by the Great Northern boat to
Kaslo and there held two days. Sir
Mulock may be able to run a cheap
mail service, but he is also capable of
running a very inefficient one. The
tendency of the Dominion government
appears to be to help out other coun-
trys and allow Canadians to look out
for themselves. This it has been successful in accomplishing in all matters
from the Alaska boundary question to
the subsidizing of foreign tubs. It
would be unpatriotic for Sir Mulock to
patronize a Canadian line even though
it would deliver mail two days earlier
than the foreign company. There is
no doubt the Great Northern influence
has been very valuable te  impecunious
politicians of the Liberal faith, in the
west, but thai does not help a
business community, whose commercial
interests are being injured daily.
Vancouver is becoming a progressive
town.    Each week produces  a-sensation more startling than   the previous
one.    For months the  town has been
overrun with hold-ups and  thugs; the
Chinese   gamblers  have  been  having
their   usual   inning;   charges against
members of the police force  have been
numerous; a few days ago  a   16-year-
old girl was on  trial for the attempted
poisoning  of her  mother, and the last
sensation   is   the  arrest  of a   photographer and the  capture  of some two
hundred photographs of girls and young
women of that  city taken  in  a  nude
state.    The   people   of   the coast  are
peculiar in   many  respects.    They establish mission schools for the Christianizing of the Chinese, a  race  that holds
the   Christian   religion   in    contempt.
There   are   people   on   the coast who
would be horrified if by   any  chance a
mongrel should get among  their kennel of thoroughbred dogs, but  they do
not hesitate to allow  the  mongrels of
the human race to associate daily with
their families.   And they are astonished
when the Asiatic  influences  break out
among the young  women  of a  community.     John   Chink   may   not    say
much,   but  his  every  act  has  an   influence   upon   the  young   people  wilh
whom     he   associates.      For    over   a
quarter of a  century  the  people  have
been sowing the wind; they are now
beginning to reap the whirlwind, and
they will And that each succeeding harvest will give a greater yield in Oriental
thought and Oriental immorality.
