Marcus and Gilbert, who have been
working steadily all winter on their
group of claims about three miles from
town, left for Kaslo Monday to take a
few weeks' rest. Besides prospect
work, consisting of open cuts, a 25-
foot tunnel has been run this winter
following the ore body. The face of
the tunnel, when work was discontinued, was all in ore, well mineralized,
a large part of which is free-milling.
Chas. Diamond and Con O'Neal have
completed assessment work on the
three claims comprising the First
Chance group, at Bosworth. The
work done consists of 18 feet of an
open cut, 8 feet of tunnel and the ledge
stripped in four places, The lead is
quartz three feet in width and carrying
gold and copper values. The group is
owned by Mrs. Barker of Vancouver
and Diamond and O'Neal.
About ten days ago work was com-
menced on the surface of the big showing of Ihe Lucky Jack, a short distance
above the mouth of the tunnel. Ihe
ore being taken out of this ledge is
very rich, Ivnm .,Lr4!*!y spattered with
gold. So severe has been the criticism
of the Great Northern Mines and its
properties that The Nugget is afraid,
if it told the truth, that there would be
another outburst of jealous rage from
some of the coast papers. However,
it is worth a trip all the way from Victoria to Poplar to see the ledge of the
Lucky Jack. And what an object lesson, what an educative influence it
would have on the chappiedom of that
city.
Bruce White is in Duluth and J. A.
Magee is in St. Paul in the interests of
the Spyglass Mining company. At the
local office of the company yesterday
it was stated that they were sending in
a number of orders for share*. It was
also stated that the work of developing
the properties of the company will be
commenced about the middle of May.
Cold Commissioner Fraser has recommended to the government that the
present trail, leading to the Spyglass
group be widened into a wagon road.
Mr. Fraser in his letter to the government in favor of a wagon road, said
that he was satisfied the Spyglass was
a property of such a character that it
justified the construction of a wagon
road.—Nelson Daily News.

An Article Which Ik Unfair Untruthful and ITnJiiHt.
In last week's issue of the Trout
Lake Topic an article appeared dealing
with the school problem in Poplar and
censuring Inspector Wilson. It would
have been much better had the article
"ever been puplished, for there was no
foundation for any of the assertions
made. The facts are these: In January   Inspector   Wrilson  visited   Poplar
under instructions from the education
department in answer to a petition asking tha* a school be opened here. He
found that there were not the requisite
number of children of school age for
the department to act in the matter.
Before leaving he called a meeting of
parents and others interested in the
establishment of a school, at which
were present Messrs. J. J. Cameron,
E. L. Masterson, K. M. Morgan, C
Dundahl, E. Baillie, A O. Ostby, J.
Simpson and others. Mr. Wilson full)
explained his position. If, as the article in the Topic slates, he "did not
see half the children" in town, surely
some of these gentlemen were in a position to inform him of the whereabouts
of the other half. The fact that a
meeting was called proves that Mr.
Wilson did take "into his confidence
persons familiar with the country."
The children of school age resident
in the town at the time of Mr. Wilson's
visit were:
Morgan	
Masterson	
Dundahl	
Ostby

Total
To this number  twro  or  three  have
since been added, and two  more fami-
. ...
lies will arive the early part of this
month, bringing the total number of
children up to 12 or 15. The parents
have, since Mr. Milson's visit, been
keeping a shool open by private subscription. This, of course, is a hardship, but under the circumstances
could not be avoided. In another week
Poplar will be entitled to a school, and
no doubt the department will act
promptly in the matter.
The foregoing are the facts of the
case. Everyone in Poplar regrets that
there were not a sufficient numbe of
children of school age in the town when
Mr. Wilson was here, but the inspector
should not be censured for that. His
duty is to carry out departmental
regulations, not to furnish children to
fulfill the conditions of those regulations.

They were bavin g strenuous times
at Lardo this week. Three descendants of the Norsemen called at a house
in that town, kicked the doors off the

threw the inmates into the street. A
boat-stealing case occupied the attcn-
of the citizens for a short time, which
in turn gave place in the public eye to
a summary conviction by a game warden for an infraction of the game law,
and last but not least, a surveyor
surveyed a pre-emptor out of his preemption.    All this in one week.
People grow old by thinking themselves old. When they reach the age
of forty, fifty or sixty, they imagine
they look like others of the same age,
and that they soon will be useless,
unfit for work, and unable to perform
their duties. As surely as they think
this it will come true, for thought is
creative. Poplar, B. C, April i, 1904-

v The "angle of convenience' is the
slope angle assumed by loose rock,
as that collected at *#he foot of a
precipice or the front of a mine dump.
This angle varies slightly with different materials, but is about :UJ degrees. Few hills are steeper than
35 degrees, though often appearing
to be steeper. The character and
dip of the rocks often have important
bearing on the slope an^le of the
hill.
In mining, as in other matters,
these Arabic lines are trite and true:
He that knows not and knows not
that he knows not, is a tool—shun
him,
He that knows not and knows that
he knows not, is simple—teach him.
He that knows and  knows not that
the metals is applied, the diffusion of
the gold takes place more rapidly.
The tendency ot the particles is upward into the lead. As far as is yet
known, the evaporation of golJ occurs only in the presence of another
metal.
A Shawinut miner on his way from
the mine to Chinese Camp recently
saw a new Stetson hat lying in the
middle of the road. When he went
to pick up the hat he found protruding: from the mud beneath it it a head
of hair and two black eyes. "What
are you doing thereV" asked the
miner. "I am Bill Booker, the
teamster, standing on top of a load of
lumber, and my horses are just ahead
of me." Booker admits all, but says
he never owned a Stetson hat, and
that it was just a plain $2 hat,—Ex.
Little Nellie was learning to read,

There is no dart capable of inflicting a deeper wound to the heart
than an unkind word, and all the repentance will not serve to erase tie
searing. Be careful, therefore, and
shun unkind words always.
One might as well look forward
hopefully to the future. There's always a chance for an improvement
in the weather.

THIS AND THAT.
The Interior Liberal Council met
last week in Rossland, representatives
from all the inland towns being present.
It is pleasing to note that the delegates
by resolution reaffirmed their confidence in Sir Wilfrid Laurier and commended the course of the leader of the
provincial opposition, W. A. McDonald.
This is as it should be. It would have
been a dastardly act had they turned
down Sir Wflfrid and VV. A. and expressed confidence in Borden and Dick
McBride. Had they only reaffirmed
their confidence in the integrity and
statesmanship of J. Israel Tarte the
convention might have been considered
a howling success.
The electors of the two  largest  constituencies  in   Canada—Kootenay and
Vale-Cariboo—may be said   to be "between the devil  and  the  deep  sea" in
the choice of representatives.    If they
elect a  rich  man, they  cannot   expect
him to be in   sympathy with   the great
mass of the electorate.    If they elect a
poor man they cannot expect  to  have
an  independent   representative.    It requires money to carry on  a  campaign
in either of these  constituencies,   and
in order to get the  necessary funds the
poor candidate must  mortgage himself
to some person  or  persons   having designs  on   the   public   treasury;   must
trade  his vote   for  sufficient  cash   to
secure his election.    The   people  have
very little choice  in   their candidates.
If rich,   no favors  need   be expected;
if they support  a   poor  man,   they are
simply   manufacturing another  rascal
who must bleed the public  in  order to
pay off the mortgage.
When it takes to geography or news
of the mining  camps of the  interior,
the   Vancouver   World   is   the    most
startlingly   original   of  a!l  the   coast
papers.    It will be news  to  the residents of Poplar to learn that they have
been  packing goods two  miles  from
the railway station to the  town.    The
fact that the station  platform  extends
to Second street,  and  that  the  trains
stop daily at the station  in the heart of
the town, is of little consequence.   And
the Kaslo and Slocan  has  slipped into
j the district  unknown  to the residents,
and is shaking all  kinds of "rivalry"
in the face of the C. P. R.    Following
is  the  World's latest addition  to the
geography of the interior:
"Letters received from Poplar say
there is every indication of a rush to
there in the spring. The snow is now
leaving the ground and Poplar's seven
hotels are getting ready for the advance. The most satisfactory news is
that the C. P. R. has promised a station and telegraph office. There was
keen rivalry between the Kaslo and
Slocan railway and the C. P. R. last
summer. Mr. Keen president of the
mining association, and associates own
a townsite two miles further on than
Poplar. Those wishing to send telegrams had to go two miles to that
other town to reach a railway office."
There are people who attend strictly
to their own business, and also those
who devote their time and energy to
the straightening out of other people's
affairs. Until last week the people of
Poplar believed the wheels of progress
were running along smoothly toward
prosperity, that the town was going
along as rapidly as could be expected,
and that in the natural course of events
the school problem would settle itself.
In fact everything was rosy, and prosperous, when along comes a garrulous,
heckling auld fish-wife of a bagman
from Victoria, whose zeal for the
"pairty" far outweighed his respect for
the truth. Wrhy, the creature was so
meddlesome that he couldn't pass a
speckled hen sitting on a door-knob
without reading her a lecture on the
futility of attempting to propagate the
species wilh a door-knob as the basis
of operations. After the hen's affairs
were settled to his satisfaction, he
turned   his   attention   to    educational
