THE NUGGET.
VOL. I.   No. 8.
Poplar, B. C. January 22,1904.
[The Lardo King:.
R. Roberts is working on the Lardo
„ing group at the  Second  Crossing.
"he group  comprises  six  claims—the
lunset, owned by  Frank  Helm, Gold
Jar by Ole Bergland, Lardo   King by
Martin   Lundgren, Happy   Four by R.
Loberts, and the  Woodrow  and   Hall.
>y   Chas.   Woodrow.    On  the   group
Lhere   are   nine    leads  but  only   two
|have  been   developed  lo   any   extent.
The larger of these  two is  30  feet in
[width on which  a  tunnel is now being
{run.    The  other lead is 9 feet  wide.
[A shaft   has   been   sunk  on  this  to  a
depth   of   20   feet.    A   sample  of 50
(pounds of ore  was  sent some  weeks
I ago to the  Tacoma  smelter  for assay
but returns have not yet been received.
The Buffalo.
Development work has been commenced on the Buffalo group under the
superintendence of Henry White. It
is ihe intention to first run a 60-foot
tunnel to tap the lead at 50 feet depth.
If the ore body is found to maintain its
width and values at that depth, an-
other tunnel will be run to tap the lead
at 100 feet depth. If this also proves
satisfactory a mill will be erected.

An Off Week.
A "pied" for is the cause of lateness
in issuing and scarcity of news in The
Nugget this week. In a large office
this would mean a delay of only a few
minutes, but where one man is editor,
proofreader, printer, pressman and
devil those little slips take longer lo
adjust. And then it requires some time
to properly express one's opinions after
an accident of this kind.
THIS AND THAT.
Fire Wardens.
A meeting should he called for the
etefctitm xrt^irvwm&tmi**m*de«* the Village Fire Protection Act. In a new
town lik Poplar, there is great danger
from bush fires, brush left on vacant
lots, defective flues and other causes.
The election of energetic fire wardens
who would see that every possible precaution was taken before the warm
weather sets in is a matter in which
every citizen is interested. When so
many prospectors are liable to lie in
the hills in this district, as there doubtless will be next summer, and a large
number of them pilgrims who have
never roughed it, bush fires are liable
to occur frequently. Another source of
danger is the large number of lots that
have been purchased by non-residents
and partly cleared, with logs and piles
of brush on them. These lots could be
ordered cleared by the fire wardens
and the cost charged to the property.
If this matter is not attended to before
the warm weather sets in, every build-
in town is liable to go up in smoke.
Trades Committee.
A meeting of the Poplar Trades committee was held Thursday evening in
E. Baillie's office, President McQueen
in the chair. A number of communications were read and bills paid. The
report of committee appointed at last
meeting to make a draft of. the roads,
trails and bridges required for the district, was read and adopted. A telegram from the Rossland Miner, asking
how many copies of special edition of
that paper the committee would purchase, was discussed. It was decided
to withhold action until sample copy
was received.
When a married man declares that
he never felt better in his life, his other
half should look out for squalls.
From The Chicago Mining World.
Progressive mining statistics constitute the most valuable
asset  in  the province.    They  might be very  much  better
were the average man to possess a little more "sand," but
a perpetual murmuring against the two per cent tax, the
extravagance  of past  mine  management,  the Whittaker-
Wright   affair,   railway   freights   and   various   imaginary
troubles, make him sit down and wait for the morrow which
never comes.    He seems to be saturated with the *'knocker"
spirit, either too lazy or too mean to act for himself and unwilling to see the awakening of others.    He declares conditions are practically dead from the time of the London and
Globe revelations, and so they must always remain.    And
again, if any new section  of the  rich Kootenay country receives wide-spread prominence the jealousy of coast mining
is aroused, and through the columns of the Victoria Mining
Record are recalled to  the  prospective stockholder various
bubbles, seeking incidentally to  give that very stockholder
good advice of something safer on Vancouver Island.   Such
tactics would hardly be credited to a New Yofk blackmailing
sheet.    That these repeated attacks have caused the scarcity
of eastern and foreign capital is true.    So also is it true that
4h*s^ articular  publication  which   takes  such-unbounded
pleasure bemoaning over the  dead  past, actually has failed
to attract capital to its own field.
With or without the influence of coast papers and knockers, Kootenay mining, thanks to the pluck and perseverence
of a few large operators, has survived, and statistics are
very creditable, indeed, the output for the Boundary and
Rossland being the greatest on record.
Since July great excitement has been centered on the
really marvellous Poplar Creek gold fields. No such ore
has ever been uncovered in any part of the northwest.
Poplar Creek is 35 miles southeast of the great gold-producing Eva and Oyster-Criterion properties at Camborne.
Samples exhibited   in   October  at  the  Spokane   Interstate
fair took every prize and diploma offered, though in compe- ^ resldence in RossIand| .g ex_

mens weighing five to ten pounds actually were half gold.
^Hs dlstt"tcTTseasyo^''al!cess" "ana facilities are excellent.
The crag and fell formation of the mountains lends itself
readily for exploitation by tunnel. The galena leads are
generally productive of gold and copper values, but are not
so large. Several properties have been proven to carry
good pay values in several large and small veins, running
with the formation, varying in width from five to forty feet,
besides numerous veins crossing the formation diagonally,
cutting the big ledges with clear cleavage where at the point
of intersection gold is nearly always to be seen with the
naked eye.
It has been suggested that at depth the Poplar Creek ores
will not maintain their amazing richness. The same was
prophesied for the Eva and Ophir Lade which are strictly
free-milling at 600 feet depth and the indications at the
Lucky Jack point even more favorably than the Eva did at
the same point of development, and the Lucky Jack is a
distinctly richer property.

ARMSTRONG  &   ALHSTROH
Study In Advertising.
Advertising has come to be   regarded alternately the medium  of
{progress and  dishonesty.   Some of
the  best  business successes of the
jountry are a tribute to good advertising;  while again   we find clean
[business in some callings placing a
ban upon this manner of proclaiming
[wares or bilitiaes. Many professianal
[men  havh   unwritten   professional
[men  have   unwritten   professional
ethics forbidding advertising,  and
the same is being found among flnan
cial managdrs.   Into these lines of
business it is found an unscrupulous
[class is entering   with: increasing
strength and success, as if to give the
I lie to the principle guiding the majority.
And here rises an argument   The
[Mining World suggests that perhaps
I if advertising were more general in
all callings, there would be less op
port unity for the fake.   Advertising
j is a recognized method of exploiting
the merits of one's business oroppor
trinities.   If the members of the New
York stock exchange never advertise, is it not reasonable that among
la cIhss having little opportunity to
be accurately  informed, the fraud a
lent or exaggerating advertiser has
j a natural and fertile field?   So in
[other lines.   As Mining World suggests, it occurs that more general advertising would be in a large mea
sure a cure.
But while this general argument
favors advertising, it is apparent to
|he world (hat there should be repletions.   It is not at all improper
that a  man's authorized advertise
lent should be in the nature of an
fgreementon  his part, which, ifac
>pted by another,  would be a con
ract, binding to the extent of the
tatements  made therein.     It  this
rere done for a short time, advertis
ig would adhere to the cold form of
ruth, and thus would a major part of
rauds perpetrated through its useful
motions be eliminated.

Let us recapitulate, said the mag
ite, and perhaps my lord duke you
rill reconsider your decision.   You
fish  to marry  my daughter.   In
return for this—in return for uniting
her with one of the flowers of England's nobility, namely, yourself—I
offer you 400 shares in the stock of
the Amalgamated Can Opener company; par value $100; 2,000 shares of
the Gold Hinge Power, par $1,000;
100 bonds in the Compressed Leaves,
limited, and a controlling interest in
the Fish Scale International. Just
think of it! Can it be possible, with
this princely offer before you, that
you absolutely refuse to marry my
daughter? j
The duke arose and turned toward the door.
Yes, I refuse, he said cruelly.
The desperate magnate strode
after him.
What will you consider? he asked
anxiously.
The duke looked back. It is absolutely ^necessary, he said, that I
have a hundred dollars in cash.

The miserable effect of reading this
publication is relieved by looking at the
