I NEWS OF THE MINES. 8
*000000000000000000000000*
E. Lewis is developing- the Gold Hill
group of claims a half mile west of
Rapid creek on the south side of the
Lardo. The group comprises two
claims, each running 1500 feet from
the railway south. The open cuts on
the property show ledge matter from
7 to 10 feet in width, carrying iron and
copper pyrites, zinc blende and galena.
On the hanging wall is a stringer of
carbonates from 2 to 6 inches wide and
carrying high values in gold. The
showing is about 150 yards from the
railway track. Development work
done consists of open cuts and a 20-
foot shaft. The ledge has been opened
up in three places. It is the intention
of the owner to continue development
during the winter.
A. R Springett, Macleod, and F.
VV. Godsel, Cowley, Alta., came in on
Wednesday's train. Both gentlemen
are intere.-ted 111 the Great Northern
Mines, limited, and came in to have
a look at the Lucky Jack and Swede
groups. Barkley Crilly, assistant
manager of the company, is showing
them around. Wednesday they visited
lhe Lucky Jack and Thursday the
Swede group, and expressed themselves as highly pleased with the result
ol development. From here Mr. Godsel goes south lor the winter,   ,
mer. Well, your readers may ask the
question: What leads you to believe
that ? That will call for our explanation, which is as follows:
First—The country is within reach
of every one. You can gain access to
it by rail, which is an advantage that
scarcely any country ever had. That
naturally makes the price of provisions about the same as in the outside
markets.
Second—We believe that the mineral
is here lo be taken out. We have in
our company a man w ho has had years J
of experience in California, Alaska and
Idaho mines, and he passes his opinion
as such.
Everything is here in place; the
strata of rook are regular and uniform,
and all run parallel with each other.
The country is not broken up as in
most camps. The Lucky Jack is a
record-breaker and it lies only one
minutes walk from the railway track.
In other words, to sum the whole thing
up, it is the best mineral country that
we ever saw.
We have already staked two claims,
one of which has a 30-inch and the
other a 46-inch lead, which we intend
to develop at an early date. We also
expect to do more locating as soon as
the snow disappears.  Yours truly,
The W. Y. O. D. Mining Co.
Poplar, Dec! 1, 1903.
Tiu'o Du .esno made an important
strike on the Royal ^roup of Claims
Monday. The lead is 1 ieel in width

j;old. The Royal group comprises ihe
Royal King, Royal Crown and Royai
Prince and were locale*! In Theo. Du-

lOinmenced at once and carried on
during the winter.
A contract has been let lo A. Garvey
and S. L. Williams to run a 100-foul
tunnel and 50 Ieel OI drilling on the
Home Run, by J. L. Whiiney, the
owner. The home Run is situated
about a mile south of Poplar and
south of the Lillle Phil, one of the
Lucky J a k group.
The tunnel on   the Lucky Jack is   in
240 feet, and  lhat on   the Swede group
00 feet.    Sinking   has also been commenced on the latter ^roup.
The W. Y. O. I>. Speaks.
Editor Nugget : I would like to insert a few words in your columns this
issue and slate my, or rather our,
opinion of this country in and around
Poplar creek. W7hen I speak of my or

In twenty days the "swear-off"
season will be on.
Even Santa Ciaus will be in camp
before many nights.
The knocker cannot borrow any
hammers at this office.
The grading of the principal streets
should be commenced at once.
This journal will grow in a few
weeks. Poplar whs not built in a day.
The ra] id building of a smelter at
Kaslo wi'l explode a heap ot doubt.
Poplar needs a bank. We have
grown tired hiding money under a
cedar log.      	
It is probable that the case involving the title to the Lucky Jack
will be settled cut of court.
Everything 1ms its day.   It used
to be Klondike, but now the magic
word Poplar is storming the hopes of
thousands.
A new discovery has been made at
Village Point, nearJJnion,Vancouver
Island. The discovery was made by
his majesty's cruiser Flora.
From reading the dispatches in the
daily papers one could easily come
to the conclusion that Cripple Creek.
Colorado, was located in Russia,
The little set-to billed some time
ago between Japan and Russia still
hangs fire. They are probably
holding back for a larger purse*.
The commissioner of lands and
works should be petitioned to build
two bridges at Poplur, one across
Poplar creek and the other across the
Lardo.   The cost would not be great.
The editor is sq.busy selling Float
that he has not the time to spatter
Poplar's greatest paper with editorials. He will open his editorial
battery in a few days and take off
the limit.        	
In the "Freest Nation on Earth"
a Cripple Creek editor is compelled
to show the proofs of his editorials to

Poplar is too near civilization.
People like to wallow through snow
about five hundred miles from a railroad when they strike out for a gold
camp. An> thing you get easily is
not appreciated, even gold nuggets.
"Float,"Colonel Lowery's latest
fad and sanesf insanity, is now on
sale in The Nugget office, at the
moderate price ot 50c for one copy,
or two copies for $1. Buy it; read it,
and slay others before you are yourself slain.
From the Lucky Jack to the Spyglass is about twelve miles, and
over the whole area between these
claims ledges of high-grade ore have
been discovered. . The provincial
mineralogist should call again and
make another guess.
The C- P. R. trains in other parts
of the country may not make con
nections on schedule time, but on the
Lardo branch the engineer brings
his train in on time, even if the
fireman has to sit on a crowbar
across the dome of the locomotive
to keep it in place.
The members of the provincial
legislature wili make the *'scale''
during the present session. It i3 tx-
ptcred that the session will l.-iat three
weeks, for which period hey will
each receive $800. In any other
calling? H would take some of them
three years to earn the same amount.
The new republic of Panama had
a narrow escape the other day Four
individuals attempted to pry the baby
nation on* its center of gravity, but
the tour were surrounded by the
army ot the republic and captured
after a sharp engagemci t. The
army U again engaged in its usual
occupation ot rolling cigarettes.
It only costs $2 to have a fully
paid up interest in The Nugget for
one year. We do not throw in any
of the cheap eastern publications for
this anount. The reading matter
published in this journal weekly will
be found sufficient to keep the brain
of the average adult in a normal
condition, therefore this publication
does not offer clubbing r.ites with
any of the low grade newspaper for
motions in the East.
Slander is the revenge of a  coward,
and dissimilation his defense.
It may be that matches are made in
heaven, Bec-iuse the ftre never goes
out in the other place.
The Nugget buildmg was completed this week and is one of the best

two stories, and 10-foot ceilings. The

tor anything, we will have one of the
greatest gold producing camps on
the continent. The fact that the provincial mineralogist is not very
sanguine as to the camp's future is of
very little iinportai.ee. Nearly
every dividend paying mine in the
west has been 'hammered" by a
tiliuii g engineer at some time in its
history, still that has not prevented
practical mining mer from investing
their money* and getting large returns on their investments. "Gold

Win. Kellem came tn Wednesday's
train from Nelson where he has
been for the past month. He owns the
Bertha K claim, which lies east of the
Lucky Jack, and was the discovorer of
the rich ledge on the Dominion, owned
by Aug. Buffalo. Mr. Kellem intends
to winter in Arizona.
"There will be a meeting in the reading room of the Grand hotel next
Wednesday evening, the 16th inst., at
8 o'clock, for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisability of
forming a branch of the Provincial
Mining Association. All residents are
requested to be present.
The Phoenix Pioneer has commenced on its fifth year, and is one of
newspaper propositions that ha? paid
from the start. This was probably
owing to the decided and positive stand
its editor has taken and the outspoken
manner in which he has treated all
questions effecting the public well
being. The Nugget wishes the Pioneer
continued success, and hopes its editor
will never grow weary of denouncing
evil and upholding the right.
Shooting Contest.
A shooting match will take place
Sunday for a purse of $15, between
Billy Holloway. champion shot of the
Upper Lardeau, and Shorty Higgins,
champion of the Ymir and Rossland
districts. Both gentlemen have reputations as marksmen with the rifle, and
also as close shots at the truth. Billy
has a record of shooting three grouse
and a rabbit at one shot, all through
the head. Shorty killed a cariboo and
a cougar with one shot while
both were on the move. Sunday's
contest will be a very interesting one
if the conditions are carried out to the
letter. It will consist of 1, shooting at
rabbit on run, going  from   marksman;
2, at rabbit coming toward marksman;
3, grouse on wing; and 4, at stationary mark, 120 yards. Joe Bush, the
referee, Is to furnish the objects to be
shot at under the conditions of agreement. The referee probably has the
most difficult part of the contract to
fill, but says he wilt be there with the
goods shorp on time.
MINING FLOAT.
Application has been made to the
provincial legislature by the Granby
company for permission to run a tunnel from a point near Greenwood to
tap the ore bodies at Phoenix.
Operations at the Cariboo. Camp
McKinney, have been temporarily discontinued; and in the meantime it is
is probable that the plant for treating
the ore will be added to.
The Ella and Dumphree claims on
Hardy mountain, near Grand Forks,
have been taken over by Boston capitalists and development will be started
at once.
It is claimed that there arc 15,000.
tons of ore in sight in the Betts claim
in the Boundary on which work was
started last June.
Within the past three weeks, says
the Camborne Miner, three rich strikes
have been made on Mohawk creek, a
tributary of Pool creek. The first discovery was made on the Del Rey, a
group of four claims. This property
has had a good amount of development
work done in the past season and exploratory work has shown up remarkably rich bodies of ore. On the Silver
Dollar about 15 tons of ore, running
from $70 to $150 'o the ton, have been
taken out. The chances are that next
spring Mohawk creek will be one of
the busiest points in the Camborne
district.
Discriminating readers know what
the editor ment when he said in last
week's issue of the Minneapolis Messenger: There i$ a little matter to
which the Me$$enger beg$ 10 call the
attention of $.>mi of it$ $j'5scribcr$.
We really hate to Speak of it bat $Stiiz
have Seemingly allowed it to $itp tluir

ant i$$ue; in fact it'$ nece$$iry in ojr
busine$$. We won't Speak further on
the Subject. Perhaps you litve already gus$$ed the drift of our rem.irk$ .
