they have been prospecting between
here and Kaslo for the past two weeks.
the report is true, for there is no doubt
of the richness and extern of the ore body
on the claims. To those familiar with
the group it has appeared strange that
the company did not long ago erect
a mill to treat the ores, regardless of
the litigation on the Lucky Jack. The
announcement   will   be received   with
satisfaction   by  everyone Interested in
A tunnel is being run on   the   Morn- \ Poplar district. f
ing j^roup. Rapid creek, to tap the
miiin lead at a depth of 50 feet, From
this depth drifting will be done on the
lead.	
H. J. Baron, staff representative of
the Mining Reporter, Denver, Colo.,
was in the district this week an J visited
someof|the   Rapid  and Poplar creek
properties.
The season's assessment work has
been done on the Cranbrook group,
Poplar creek, by Fred J, Hazen. There
is a very large lead of quartz on the
group, carrying good gold values.
Lou. Williams and Jos. Atkinson
have completed the season's work on
the Great Britain group. The work
this year uncovered a 3-foot lead of
galena in which is about ten inches of
gray copper.
The tunnel on the Broken Hill,
Rapid creek is now in nearly a hundred
feet. An additional 75 feet will have to
he run before the rich lead of arsenical
iron uncovered on the surface is reached
This will give a depth of about one
hundred and twenty-five feet.
Work will shortly be commenced on
the group of claims on Poplar creek,
bonded to Dr. McDougall a short lime
aisro by George Ross and John and
James Caldwell. There are two groups
comprising four claims each, one be-
Iweed Poplar and Cascade creeks, and
the other adjoining the town of Poplar.
Instructions were received from Dr.
McDougal this week to commence run-
n,ng a tunnel on the   Hercules  group.
k ihe strike in the lower tunnel of the
Spyglass is much more important than
•'»t tirst supposed. When first encountered the lead was from 10 to 14 inches
111 width, but in the last ten feet driven
" has widened to fron 22 to 24 inches.
rhe ore is also much richer than at the
surface, carrying galena, gray copper
Knd native silver across the whole width
of the ledge. The tunnel is in a little
over 100 feet. Twelve men are being
forked eight hour shifts.
The Poplar Creek branch of the Provincial Mining Association is about to
call a special meeting to consider the
question of several amendments to the
Mineral Act, and to ask the executive
to prepare and lay before the next convention a draft of a new mineral act,
which will be in conformity with the
law as laid dewn in recent judgments,
or to so alter ihe law as to prevent
such anomalous cases from arising
in future. One important alteration
will be considered, that is, whether it
is not desirable to give ihe prospector
say thirty days m whtm to record his
discovery, and at the same time lo
compel the first year's work to be done
in that time, and before he can record.
The object in this is to prevent one
man holding so many claims as they
do al present, which they cannot possibly hope to represent each year. This
naturally causes the occupation of so
much ground, by single individuals,
that many g^>J oien are debarred from
coming into the camp, as they see that
all the ground is covered by a few men,
to develop which is beyond their capacity, even for the inspection of possible buyers. Another important matter will be  the question   whether  it is

to survey their claims and advertise
them for certificate of improvements,
without applying for them and without
doing the required work, simply getting the time over tor an adverse, and
then tying op the property for an indefinite period, or until they choose to
apply for certificates and crown grants.
Another point is to prevent placer
miners staking placer claims over
quariz claims, for as tho law is at
present interpreted some thirty-two
placer claims could, with a stretch of
an elastic conscience, be slaked over
any quartz claim-a thing unknown
under the laws of old mining countries.
Although it is well known that a placer
miner if he, during his work uncovered
a quartz lode, was entitled to stake it
for himself, but a placer claim being
staked on a quartz claim was never
until recently contemplated by any one.
These and a number of other anomalies
are to receive the attention of the local
organization, and it is hoped there will
be a large attendance.

the ladies. W. E. Marshall and Turk
D. Brown were the committee who
had charge of the arrangements.
J. O. Moore, road superintendent,
is in the district and will go up Poplar
ceeek Sunday. It is to be hoped the
government will at once take steps to
build a wagon road, or at least a
sleigh road, up Poplar creek. The
Spyglass and the Copper King will
both shortly be in a position to make
regular shipments of ore. In fact, the
Spyglass could commence shipping at
once. It is very discouraging to a
company, after they have developed to a
shipping stage, not to be able to
realize on ihe money invested owing to
tardiness on the part of the government.
Ther are a number of claims on Pop-
plar creek that could ship providing a
wagon road were built. This is a
new camp, and trails or roads are required on every creek. It is the duty
of the government to furnish these,
even if smaller appropriations have to
made to the older-settled portions of
the province. It will take $100,000 to
furnish proper roads and trails in the
territory between Lardo and Gerrard.
This sum if properly expended will give
at least 10 per cent, annually in revenue
on the investment. The district pays
into the government annually nearly 5
per cent now. Victoria has a million-
dollar, non-revenue-producing ornamental heap, known as the government
buildings, why should not the revenue-
producing Poplar district have an appropriation of $100,000 ?

FRIDAY, AUGUST IS), 1004.
The following is taken from the
Briiish Columbia correspondence in
the August 4th number of the Mining
Reporter, published at Denver, Colo.:
"I  have  received  from   private
sources information   which,   if  too
true, is very serious, that the Combination silver mill installed by the
Silver Cup and Great Western companies near Ferguson last year, is
not a success, in that quite 50 per
cent, of the silver values in the ore
are not being saved.   Some time ago
a   well-informed   correspondent  in
this district told me that the decision
to install this style of mill  had been
most hastily arrived at,  before, in
fact, careful experiments had been
made to ascertain whether or not the
process was a suitable one* for the reduction of Lardeau ores; but at the
time  it  was   hard   to   credit   the
suggestion  that   that   a    company
which     enjoys   a    reputation    for
business like conduct could I e guilty
of such culpable folly.   The facts are
bound to come out in the near future,
one way or the other,  and for the
present one can oi lv h »pe that the
report is without foundation."
Would it not have been advisable,
until "the facts came out in the near
future one way or the other," for the
correspondent of the Mining Reporter
to have rot referred to the subject?
If there was any doubt as to the truth
of this "private information" it should
not have been made public. It surely
can do no good to the mining industry
of British Columbia or the company
to make such statements without first
proving their truthfulness, The mill
at Five Mile cost half a million dollars and has not yet been in operation sufficient time to give it a fair
trial. It is doubtful if even the management yet know the percentage
ot silver saved, so it is not possible
that an outsider could be in a position
to give information not yet known by
those directly interested. If the correspondent bad been an experienced
mill man, or had even visited the
the mill at Five Mile, there would
probably have been some foundation
for the statement or it never would
have been made, but not being a
mining man, and knowing nothing
about the results of treatment of ore
in the mill, his criticism must be
considered a deliberate attempt to injure the management. The whole
B. C correspondence looks very
much like the writings ot a Victoria
person who has been using his hammer on the Lardeau for the past
year—the wolf masquerading in the
<?arb ot the Lamb.
by the government and furnishing
them  at cost to the parents.   The
scheme is a very good one, providing it proved satisfactory to parents.
Of course there is a practical as well
as a theoretical 9ide to the question.
The Independent has touched alone
on the theoretical side.   It would require an initial expenditure by the
province of from one hundred thousand to half a million dollars to commence the publication of school books
and after this expenditure is made
it is probable that the cost of produc
tion   would   be  fully  25 ptr  cent
above the present retail selling price
of school   books.   There are   many
reasons for this, the principal of winch
are, market for the product system
and wages.   The publishing houses
have a large market for their pro
duct and the editions run into the
millions, where those of the province
would only be in the thousands. The
publishing houses have systematized
their business to an extent not pos
sible by any government, no matter

The Waste Dump.
The production of antimony ores in the United States has
practically ceased. The latest figures obtainable—those of
[902—show that the production of antimony from ores mined
in the United States was nil. About 1,600 tons of ore imported from abroad was treated by native smelters.
Roughly the amount of air required for a three-inch drill
is fifteen cubic feet at 60 pounds pressure; for a three and
one-half-inch drill, twenty cubic feet at the same pressure.
The amount needed, of course, differs with the different
makes of machine.—Mining Reporter.
The largest diamond in the world is the Jubilee. It is
also unquestionably the very finest. The stone, which
weighs 239 carats, was cut from an enormous pebble, which
weighed 971 carats. Compared with other splendid diamonds
it certainly stands out pre-eminently. The Kohinor, perlect
in almost every respect, has, nevertheless, a tinge of gray;
the Regent and Orloff have minute flaws, and so on. The
Jubilee was found in the Jagersfontein mine on June 30,
1893, and was secreted by a Kaffir miner right under the
eyes of a white overseer. How it was hidden may be left to
the imagination. The immense diamond is about one and
five-eighths inches in length.—Mining Recorder.
A claim at Dawson only eight feet long, measured up and
down the valley the way the stream runs, and extending
across the valley from rim to* rim, is being worked and is
paying snug returns to its owners. This diminutive claim
has been worked ever since 1897, and paid well. Although
scarcely more than large enough to be worked, this ground
lies in the heart of the richest part of Eldorado. Last summer the claim was thought to be worked out. It was sold
and the new owner immediately began work in the bedrock.
He went four feet deeper in the clay formation called bedrock and in two hours took out enough to pay for the claim.
The purshase price was $500. The pay found then may
have been extraordinary rich, but the ground seems to be
rich to a considerable extent yet, and preparations are being
made to work it this summer.    M. and K. Review.
An aerial cable, 35 miles long, and inclosing 19 wires, is
to be suspended on thousands of poles across the Great Salt
Lake by the Southern Pacific and Western Union people.
It will be the longest cable of this character in the world,
and will be suspended from poles close alongside the Southern Pacific cutoff across the two northern arms of the lake
for most of the distance. Where there is trestling the cable
will be hooked to the side of it. The poles will be a little
below the level of the cutoff's surface. By this means they
and the cable, the latter weighing a pound for every foot of
'ts length, will be protected from the fierce winds that sweep
across the great body of water. The officials found it unfeasible to place a cable in the salt water. They also found
^at ordinary wires strung on poles could not resist the action of the fierce lake winds. An aerial cable, fully insured and protected, was finally seen to be the only solution
of the problem. The Southern Pacific is preparing to
abandon the old line of the Central Pacific between Lucm
andOgden and use the new cutoff route. That is why a
new telegraph route is being built.-M. and E. Review.
