Jim Grant arrived in  town  Wednesday and has gone prospecting.
On the Marcus and   Gilbert   properties very rich ore is being taken out.
Funk and Richardson have uncovered
a 6-foot lead of gold-bearing quartz on
ihe Sunnyside, north of Poplar.
Ralph Higginson and Oscar Nelson
have commenced work on a claim adjoining the Dover, west of town.
Rorv McLeod and M. Monahan are
working on claims southeast of the
Buffalo group. They have dug a ditch

order a hundred stamps and commence
mining operations on a large scale.
If these values remain uniform to a
depth of 50 feet, there is no reason why
they shouldn't go down to the 1,000-
foot level or even deeper.

town this week surveying the Bertha K
A. L. Houston is making a trail to
the Red Rock and will commence development on the claim next week.

Captain Campbell and Pete Kelly
came in Wednesday and will this week
commence woik on the Telluride, Majestic, Golden Zone and Spider, a
group of claims adjoining the Marcus
and Gilbert properties.
The assay returns of ore from the
First Chance |fave $50*.60. The
group Is situated near Bossworth and
is owned hy Con O'Neill, Chas. Diamond and Mrs. Barker. The lead is
between three and four feet in width.
L. Hanna of Kaslo arrived in town
Thursday, after visiting Trout Lake
and Ferguson. Mr. Hanna is in
terested in a number of claims in the
district, and will shortly commence de
velopment in the neighborhood of the
the Marcus and Gilbert group.
The 100-foot tunnel on the Home
Run will be completed this week. Part
of the face is in quartz but it is not yet
known whether it is the lead they have
been running for.
Tom Collins, one of the old-timers in
Nelson, arrived in town Wednesday.
He made a number of locations in this
district last year and is here to do assessment on them.
Fred Kaiser and Chas. Diamond
1 Ins week received assay returns from
1 be samples of the Bigh Horn lead.
The returns give 6 2-5 ounces gold to
the ton. The Big Horn is about a
mile north of Poplar and has a 12-foot
lead. The location was made about
a month ago
For the past few weeks Superintendent Morgan of the Great Northern
company's properties in Poplar Creek
district has been prospecting and
sampling on the surface of the Lucky
Jack and Swede groups. He says that
'lie schist formation throughout the
whole surface of these claims carries
values in free gold running from $5 to
$>o to the ton. On the Swede group
for a width of 300 feet and running the
whole length of the claim, samples
have been panned, giving in each case
a value of about $8 to the ton. The
same course has been taken with
samples from the Lucky Jack and with
similar results, but in the latter the
rock was tested to a depth of 50 feet
along the side of the shaft now being
sunk and was found to maintain its
Va,ue at that depth. It is unnecessary
to comment on the results from these
tests.    If the rock is as stated by Mr.
,0rgan, and  there  is   no   reason to
Ed. Ward, foreman of the Handy
group, eight miles west of Poplar, was
in town Wednesday and reports surface
work progressing favorably. The new
pump was tested a few days ago and
worked satisfactorily. Sinj|ui^r„wjyj>(ss,
resumed as soon as (he shaft is clear
of water.  "
Work on the Spyglass*	
R. G. McLeod of the Spyglass Mining and Development company has returned from a successful visit to Seattle
in the interests of his company. He
sold several thousand shares of stock
in Seattle.
Dr. George Armstrong, of Spokane,
one of the directors of the company,
intends to go to Ottawa in a few days
for the purpose of visiting friends and
relatives. Lately he has received a
number <^f letters from old associates
in Ottawa and other places in Eastern
Canada inquiring about the mining
situation and asking that he put them
In on anything that he thought was
really good. Dr. Armstrong thinks
that the Spyglass is about as good o
mining enterprise as he knows of and
will, he is satisfied, induce a number of
them to invest in its shares.
Mr. McLeod further said that he expected lo leave for Poplar creek in the
course of a few days for the purpose of
looking into the condition of the trail
leading from Poplar to the mine. If
the snow has receded far enough it will
be placed in condition at once so that
supplies can be packed in. Just as
soon as supplies can be taken in a
force of men will be put at work to
commence the season's development,
which, when once started, will be kept
up indefinitely. It is anticipated that
matters can be so arranged that work
can be carried on all winter. There is
considerable high-grade ore on the
dump of the Spyglass, and when provisions are packed in the trains will
take on return loads of ore. The idea
is to make a smelter test of several
tons of the ore.-Nelson Daily News.

Residences aie springing up on the
Finn addition to Poplar. Among those
who are building cottages are George
Chataway, Wrm, Schmock and Turk
D. Brown.
Thursday last Geo. Davis moved into
his new barber shop on First street,
next door to the Kaiser house, where
he is prepared to clip, shave, and scrub
the headpiece of any person wishing
the services of a first-class barber.
S. F. McKay expects his sawmill in
next week. The site selected for the
mill is about a quarter of a mile east
of the railway bridge. Work has been
commenced clearing the ground. The
C. P. R. will put in a siding at the
mill, which it is expected will be in
operation the first of June.
The men who are cleaning the streets
are a little careless in firing brush. The
new bridge acress the Lardo took fire
Monday through carelessness on the
part of the person in charge of the
work. Wednesday the stable on Poplar
avenue caught fire, endangering the
Masterson, Carey and Hart buildings.
Thursday the Simpson, Dundahl, Mc-
Callum and McQueen buildings were
saved by the bucket brigade. While
it is very necessary that this work
should be done, as much care as possible should be taken to prevent the
fire from getting beyond control.
A number of chickens were stolen
from Jackson Radcliffe's hen house
this week. There must be some turnip
hoers in town, for prospectors and miners do not steal. In the prospecting
stage of a camp a few years ago the
man who would put a lock on his cabin
door would be looked upon with suspicion. Now it is different. There is
a class prospecting, fortunately only a
small number, who follow the legitimate prospector for the purpose of
wild-catting and jumping. The man
who would jump a claim on a technicality would steal chickens or anything
else that he could lift. So long as
claim-jumpers are allowed to remain
in a camp the people may expect petty
thieving to occur.
Dominion Ball.
Wednesday evening the most enjoyable dance yet given in town took
place in the New addition to the Dominion hotel. The floor was in excellent shape, the music furnished by
Geo. Davis and J. Working ihe very
best, and R. T. Martin as floor manager gave entire satisfaction to
all. Dancing commenced about 9
o'clock and was kept qp until daylight.
An excellent lunch was served about
midnight. Four sets occupied the
floor the greater part of the evening.
Ladies were present from Nelson, Gold
Hill and Trout Lake. Everyone had
a real good, old-fashioned time, where
everybody went to enjoy themselves
and did so.

Is h literary Wend, \vritlen, compiled, published and shipped by R. T.
Lowery. It tells about booze in Nelson, poker in the Silvery Slocan, gospel at Hear lake, rain in New Denver.
It is free-milling ill poetry, and has a
large chute of stories cut from the cent
belt, when the writer was doing penance among the tenderfeet in the East.
The miserable effect of reading this
publication is relieved by looking at the
pictures in it on the hanging wall. You
can tell "Float" anywhere by the bulldog on the front page. It is not selling very well, perhaps owing to the
fact that Mulock has not yet shut it out

ARMSTRONG   &   ALHSTROH
MIXING FLOAT.
Mining World says that for the tirst
three months of this year gold, silver
and copper mines paid $0,714,249
dividends, oi which copper paid a
little more than half.
The Silver King of Utah  has paid
another dividend of $10),000, bring,
ing the total for this year so tar up to
.-400,000, or a grand total of $7,725,
000 since the mine began dividends.
The Boston Consolidated company
ot Utah is planning the erection ot a
smelter. At the meeting uf director!
held recently in Salt Lake this course
was advised and will probably be
acted on at once.
A new system ot breaking ore in
the great Portland mine, Cripple
Creek, is being adopted The only
feature ot the work given t»the pub
lie is tlrai the three shifts go on at 8
a. 111., tp m   and midnight.
Ihe Combination shaft at Gold
tields, Nev., the last boom c.nupnt.ar
Tonopah, is down 175 feet, and the
ore is said to be changing from ox*
ides to sulphides, without lowering
the values found in the upper work.
C. A. Wisner, a New York metal
lurgist, recently visited Butte with
the purpose of looking over the field
for establishment of a large zinc re
duction plant there. Nothing definite as to the result ot his examination was made public.
The first lease in Stratton's Independence has been granted, Jacob
Volk, special agent for the company,
and Scott Ashton, getting it. The
lease is on the third level in whaf, is
known as the Bull Pen section, where
very rich ore was mined and extends down to the fourth level.
The Sacramento mine, Utah, has
ready for shipment another consignment of 280 flasks of quicksilver, and
another shipment is to follow this at
once. The 280 flasks named are
worth $13, COO. The management ot
the mine says every indication points
to steady production of Mercury, as
the ore body is continuous.
Engineering and Mining Review
says that during the month ot March
of this year New Jersey received
from filing fees for granting of corporation charters 89,733, as against
$22,904 for the same month m 1902.
The journal says the decline indicates the loss of popularity of New
Jersey as a home for state corporations.
The deepest bores ever made into
the earth's crust were with diamond
drills, says Mining World one at
Parnlschowitz, Silesia, and the other
near Johannesburg, South Africa.
The first named attained a depth of
6,573 feet, and the second 4,875 feet,
the first being for scientific purposes
and the second to prove the gold-
bearing reef far beyond development
work.
Reports from Cripple Creek hve to
the effect that shipments ot ore from
the camp this year so far average
about $40 a ton, whereas the shipments sor last year were not to exceed $38. The increase in value of
ore is something of a surprise, owing
to the fact that the new schedule of
the milling companies will permit
the handling af a lower grade of ore*
It is explained, however, that this
schedule has barely been felt yet.
Robert D. Grant of Utah, who has
spent some time at La Cananea,
Mexico, says that Colonel Greene's
great property is outpntting copper
at the rate of" 5,030.00J pour.ds a
month, and that the mines have immense ore reserves in sight, the value
of the ore running about 8 per cent,
of the red metal. About 3,000 per-
bons are afforded employment at the
mines and mill, of which two-thirds
are natives.
Three dividends have been pai i by
the Ophir company, operating the
property of that name on the Com-
stock lode, each disbursement being
25 cents. The hydraulic elevators
and electric pumps working on the
lode are demonstrating their ability
to handle the water economically,
and the water is being reduced at a
pace indicating the first ot the year
as the date when ork may be resumed in the old lowest workings of
the Comstock.
The Camp Bird mine at Ouray,
Colo, has declared an 18 cent dividend, and it is the purpose of the
management to add another 5 per
cent payment before the fiscal year
closes, bringing the total dividend
disbursements for the year up to 20
percent At this rate the property
would have to continue but five years
before the investors got their original
money back, it they paid face value,
which is not probable.
A. vV. Pierson, an old Montana
miner who has just returned to Butte
from the Klondike, says that placer
operations will continue around Dawson for 75 years, as a large amount
of capital is entering the district with
improved hydraulic methods and
working at great profit ground believed to have been exhausted by
the hand process of sinking and
washing. One of these companies,
which bought several old properties,
is reported to have cleaned up more
than $4,000,000 last year.
Although they had sunk a shaft to
a depth of 205 feet through frozen
ground,   miners at  work eighteen
miles above  Dawson opened a tremendous flow of water which has
never  decreased  in   volume,    and
which supplies the entire community
with a  deliciously   pure  drinking
water.   The workmen could not determine if the ground was frozen to a
greater  depth,   as  the   volume   of
water was so much of the gusher
order as to drive them out in haste.
The    Canadian    government    has
planned to pump this shaft out and
let sinking progress to detenuine if
there  is  another    bedrock    below,
which seems to be indicated by the
finding of placer ground in^the work
below the old bedrock.    When this
sinking is resumed, then it will be
determined it the ground is'frozen to
greater   depth,    or   the    apparent
thawed section penetrated is merely
from the effects ot the flowing stream
of water.

Jacobson & Anderson,
be termed the very opposit of Bostock.
He is not a wealthy man, but he has
brains. While the liberals are badly
tn need of brains, it is not unlikely that
they will cling to the traditions of the
party and give the position to the
aspirant who can "buy" in preference
to the one who can " think." The
Conservatives, when in power, also
followed this custom. Mr. Buchanan's
appointment would give satisfaction to
both parties in Kootenay, as he is,
owing to his long residence among and
business relations with the people,
thoroughly posted on the resources and
requirements of the province, and
especially the interior districts.

Sprinting records are being made

That daily train and mail service
to the Lardeau, which were to have

May, have failed to materialize.
Either W. A. Galliher or Duncan
Ross has an excellent opportunity to
bring a libel suit against tne Kootenay
Mail. In its issue of the 7th inst. the
Mail printed a half-tone cut of the
Liberal candidate for Yale-Cariboo, and
labeled it "W. A. Galliher, M. P."
In a mining camp it is very unusual
for a newspaper to have to record cases
of theft. This is especially so in the
prospecting stage. Poplar creek district appears to he the exception to the
rule, and it is hoped that the sneaks
who are operating in this town will be
caught and given a chance to earn an
honest living.
A few hundred years ago, at a time
when there was very little doing in the
way of European complications, the
Swedes and the Norwegians concluded
to have a lit le war of their own, just
to keep their hands in. Unfortunately
the Norwegians were short of powder,
so they negotiated with supposed
Swedish traitors for the purchase of a
shipload of that useful article of warfare. At the first battle, and also the
last of the war, the imported powder
would not explode. The Norwegians
quit the fight in disgust, and accused
the Swedes of selling powder that had
already been used. This was the origin of the feud between the Bjerkness
