Poplar, b. c., September 9,1904.
$2.00 A Year.
Geo. Socrates leaves on Monday to
work on the Poplar Star, on the South
Fork of Poplar creek and about fifteen
miles from town. After doing his assessment work, he will trap during the
winter, returning to town in Ap il.
The assessment work has been recorded for the year on the Hubb, Silver
Cable and Klondike, Tenderfoot creek,
and development is being continued.
Three men are working on the group.
The ore is galena and gray copper.
The year's assessment work has been
recorded on the Concord, Bunco, Sun-
iise and Sunset, Rapid creek, by J. C.
Nesbitt. It is said an option has been
taken on this group by a Nelson syndicate, but no particulars are yet available for publication.
and developing his claims to allow ioo
which to make the first payment, and
no doubt will make connections:, even
if his Shylock associates have deserted
him. Of course it is to be regretted
that work has been discontinued on
the property, but the prospector h-as to
undergo too many hardships in locating
per cent, on payments. The Hecla
was sold at a low figure because development on it would enhance the
value of adjoining properties owned by
the same parties. If the first payment
is not met, it is doubtful if a second
bond could be had for double the
Assessment work has been recorded
on the Bunker Hill, Copper King, Foze,
and Elizabeth, Poplar creek, known as
the Copper King group, and owned by
a local syndicate. Work on the group
will be continued all winter, by which
time it is believed the extent and value
of the large ore body will have been
determined. If both prove satisfactory
it will be one of the great copper-gold
mines of the West.
In another column is published an
interview given the Nelson Daily News
by H. J. Baron, special representative
of the Mining Reporter, Denver, Colo.
It is to be regretted that Mr. Baron
could not have spent more time in the
camp and visited more of the properties here. Owing to the absence of
Superintendent Morgan at Nelson, an
oppert unity was not afforded of looking over the tunnel of the Lucky Jack.
Then there are a number of Rapid
creek properties which would have
been worth examining, among them
the Smith & Rogers claims and the
Morning group, on both of which a
large amount of development work has
been done. However, no fault can be
found with the remarks of Mr. Baron
on what he did see, and taking into
consideration the fact that he came
here almost direct from Tonopah,
Nevada, he must have thought us
rather slow in our methods.
In accordance with a request from The Nugget, Mr. J. A. Magee, manager
of the Spyglass company, operating on Poplar creek, has furnished the following
information in regard to development done, and other maters in connection
therewith. Tunneling on the Spyglass has cost slightly over $12 a foot. The
payroll at the mine last month was $1,200. To those who are familiar with
the mine and the work done Mr. Magee's report will, perhaps, appear rather
under than over the mark. We hope in future issues lo give similar reports on
the Lucky Jack, Swede, Marquis and Gilbert, Mother Lode, Copper King,
Broken Hill, Morning, Calumet and Hecla,.and other properties, thus showing
that although the camp is but fifteen months old, a large amount of development has been done with very satisfactory results. Following are the faets in
reference to the Spyglass company's properties, and facts, only :
A report that the bond on the Hecla
group, Rapid creek, had been thrown
UP» is not true. The facts are: About J
four weeks ago Capt. Brace took a
°ond on the group from John Chism
and John Hendrix, the locators. The
first payment came due in 60 days.
At the expiry of thirty days Brace and
his associates offered to make the first
payment if a large discount were allowed by the owners, this Mr. Chism
refused to do, as the property had been
bonded at a very reasonable figure,
a»d too per cent, per annum is a large
Per cent, even for a pawnbroker to ask.
CaPt.   Brace still  has thirty days in
"As requested by you, 1 herewith
hand you a report of what has been
done on the Spyglass company's properties—the Spyglass, Globe and Hawk
mineral claims, since the first of June
of the present year, on which date we
commenced work with a few men, excavating a place for tents ond cook
camp, near the site of our present tunnels, as at the time we took possession
of the properties the only possible
place to pitch a tent was about 1,500
feet down the mountain, in the valley
of Poplar creek. The slope of the
mountain is about 45 degrees, and in
order to get from the camp in the valley to where we wished to commence
work it was necessary to make switchbacks (ajfig-zagJxaiJJu. which made the
distance about double, and caused a
loss of about 30 minutes time on each
"As soon as we were able to camp
near our work we started a tunnel to
tap the lead sixty feet below No. 1
tunnel, which had been driven about
thirty feel on the lead by the original
owners, and I may here explain that
they had also made a few open cuts
across the lead higher up. In all these
cuts there is more or less ore, and on
which showings we bonded the property. The tunnel started by myself,
which we call No. 2, was driven about
forty feet along ihe foot-wall, at which
point the lead came in, and we have
since driven on it. We encountered
ore where we strurk the lead and had
from 2 to 6 inches of gray copper,
which carried an average of 247 oz.
silver and a half oz in gold to the ton.
This   continued   until   we   reached a
point us feet from the porta1, where
we encountered the native silver and
black sulphides, which soon widened to
20 inches of ore. Of this we have not
had any tests made, but from assavs
made from similar ore out of No. 1
nnel it is quite safe to say the ore will
tunnel is in 170 feet now, and although
the ore is not 20 inches wide all that
distance, it is certainly a very tine
chute, and from surface showings we
have every confidence that there is
plenty of ore ahead. In this tunnel we
now have a depth of about 150 feet
and gaining nearly foot for foot.
"On August first we had a payment
to make to the owners of $8,000, but as
we had not encountered the main ore
chute at that time, we secured an extension of thirty days, so that on the
first day of this month  we were still

February, besides some stock. Soon
after securing the extension, August
1 ith, we encountered the native silver,
and after driving in that until near
the end of the month, and making sure
of its continuity, Mr. McLeod and myself went to Trout Lake to see Mr.
Winquist, and after a visit to the mine
and considerable dickering we succeeded in securing a liberal discount on
the unmatured payments, for cash,
thereby making a considerable saving
lo the stockholders.
"Since purchasing the property we
have turned our attention to building
camps, so as to have the men well
housed before the fall rains set in, the
only work in the mine being two shifts
driving an upraise to connect with No.
1 tunnel, which will give better air in
No. 2. Considerable ore will be taken
out of this upraise and that, with the
ore taken out of the tunnels, will be
shipped as soon as we can get it down
for smelter test. The first pack train
with this ore will arrive in Poplar Poplar Friday afternoon.
" In conclusion, I might say, the
Spyglass Company have built one mile
of new trail this month, from the mine
down the mountain, connecting with
the old trail in the valley. This gives
us a fairly good grade and should we
secure the government aid we hope for
to make a wagon  road, we will en-

with one to
turned this week from repairing the
trail up Poplar creek. While picking
berries one evening Shorty saw a very
large grizzly. * This was at ib feet distance. In getting away the bear had
to come within twelve feet of Shorty.
Il was much larger at the 12-foot
range of vision. Being on a large rock
and the bear being on a lower level,
Shorty had also accumulated some size
at the lesser distance. Neither audibly
expressed his feelings. The bear just
grinned. Shorty didn't. A bear grin
is a very toothy expression and might
mean anything from a bob flush bluff
to a catch-as-claw-can skinning match.
Shorty stood pal, also his hair. After
a few thoughtful moments the bear retired as gracefully as possible, considering the difficulties of his position
in having to watch Shorty, make headway, and wear a grin. Shorty believes
that a magazine rifle and man should
be inseparable companions on that trail.
The bear is still at large, and the largest that ever went berrying on Poplar
creek. .

Not half a dozen.   How many men
interested in mining in this district
have been "held up," or asked for
subscriptions by  the editor of this
paper?   Not one.   A newspaper is
like any other business, it cannot afford to expend money without some
chance of immediate returns.   Yet
there are people in the district who
want a larger paper—a boom paper—
and the Almighty only knows whac

we will give you a larger paper;

While the utmost liberty is given
to residents of British Columbia, the
man who carries a gun or a knife is
not encouraged to any extent. The
place for such persons is across the
international line, where they will
be decently killed and nothing said
about it. Last week an individual
constituted himself an associate partner in a "house" on Railroad avenue,
and through intimidation with fire
arms, knives, etc., became the HE
of the "concern. Finally the police
were called in, but unfortunately tbe
fellow escaped. He is supposed to be
up Meadow creek dodging the police.
He will probably be caught, and
given six months, while he should
do a hemp stretching act.

In speaking about the Poplar camp
Mr. Baron said: "My visit to Poplar
was full of surprises. First at finding so ui$uy real go.d surface pros
pects. Secondly, at the comparatively small amount of development
work done in the camp since its discovery. To the casual observer like
myself, the showings on a number of
the properties, notably the Swede
group, Mother Lode and Broken Hill,
appear to warrant the expenditure of
money in systematic development at
depth. 1 he condition of things there
impresses one with the view that the
claim owners lacked not only capital
but nerve to sink on their ffrouruJ.
The swede group is undoubtedly the
biggest showing in the camp, and
from pannings over an area of 300
feet by 1,200 feet at a depth of a few
inches to ,a few feet, showed large
strings of gold. There is apparently
plenty of mater ill in this exploited
area to keep in operation for some
time a stampmill of from 40 to 100
"In some instance , especially in a
100-foot tunnel on the Swede group,
where a depth of 75 feet or thereabouts is attained, the shist coustiiut
ing the rather ill-defined walls of one
of the numerous leads or veins, appears to carry good milling values,

and even at the surface at other
places the gold values are not con-
fined to the quartz leads, for the part
ings of schist pan even more readily.
It is probable, however, that the
quartz will be the permanent ore
carrier with depth, the schist along
side appearing to have acted as a
handy receptacle for the gold values
leached out of the quartz. Considering the camp's transportation facilities and the economical mining pos-
sible (unexcelled deep tunnel facilities and convenient water power
from Poplar ereek as well as from the
Lardo river) it should not be difficult
to secure the necessary capital for ex-
plointin the properties. —Nelson News

In the armies of the seventeenth
and eighteenth conturies the custom
of casting1 lots to decide what soldiers
should be punched tor the offenses ot
all was common. At Winchester;
England, in 1645; complaint was
made that after the surrender there
had been unfair plundering. Six
soldiers were tried and found guilty,
and it was decided by lot which one
ot the six should be hanged. At
Tangier in 1663, and again in 1665,
two soldiers had to cast dice on a
drumhead, and he who threw the
least was executed. Thomas May's
translation of Barclay's "Icon Ani
\ morura" grives a curious story of this
\\ sort. Speaking of English courage,
s\ he says that during the war in the
Netherlands some soldiers of the
Spanish party were taken prisoners
by the Dutch, who decided to make
reprisals for the previous cruelty of
their enemies. Out of (our and
twenty men eight were to be hanged.
There were lots, therefore, thrown
into a helmet, says May, and the
prisoners were commanded to draw
their fortunes—whoever should draw
a blank should escape, but whoever
should draw a black lot was to be
hanged presently.
They were all, aays May, possessed
with a great apprehension of their
present danger, especially one Spaniard. Their pitiful wishes and tears
in some of the standers-by did move
pity, in others laughter. There was
besides in that danger an Englishman, a common soldier, who: with a
careless countenance, expressing no
fear of death at all, came boldly to
the helmet and drew his lot Chance
favored him; it was a sate lot. Being
tree himself from danger, he came to
the Spaniard, who was yet timorous
and trembling to put bis band into
the fatal helmet, and receiving from
him 10 crowns he entreated, the
judges that, dismissing the Spaniard,
they would suffer him again to tr>
his fortune
May further relates that the judges
consented to tbe madman's request,
who valued his lite at so low a rate,
and he again drew a safe lot. May
seems rather to regret the second
escape ot the tool har J y Englishman,
whom he denounces as "a wretch un.
worthy not only of that double, but
even ot a single preservation, who so
basely had undervalued his lite."

Medical Use of Whiskey.
Whiskey as an alternative to wine
may undoubtedly be employed medicinally with advantage in certain
cases, both for men and for women.
But this is very different from the
constant recommendation which is
suggested, as if. indeed, doctors regard whiskey as a sort of panacea
for every disease under the sun, and
take a perfect delight in urging its
consumption upon their patients. As
a matter ot fact there never was a
time when medical men were more
slow to prescribe the use of alcohol in
any form than they are in the present
day, nor a time when so many refrained from advising its use at
