There were up-  , wards of 100 mining fever patients from  Nelson, and as many more boarded the  boat at Kaslo. It was an ideal day for an-;  outing and the party reached the.upper  end of Kootenay lake in high spirits.  Here they got atonic for the mining  fever by which"they were afflicted-.by the  way of glimpses of the old townsites of  Lardo and Argenta, which ten years ago  ���were keen rivals for the mining boom in  the Duncan river country, which failed to  ' keep its date. The former is now buried  uncfer 40 feet of wash which swept over  the old townsite during the freshet of  1894, but a new town has sprang up to  the north of Lardo river, and is now receiving attention chiefly as a stopping  place on the road to the new discoveries  of Poplar creek. " Across the lake Argenta'  is playing the role of a deserted village,  and its sole inhabitant holds undisputed  - sway alike over the tqwnlots of .credulous  investors of 1893-4 and the abandoned  railway grade which skirts' the upper  shore of the lake. -=��� ,. ^-V. -"->.���;'  From Lardo the journey to Poplar creek  was,continued over the. C.P.R.- branch  line, which connects Trout Lake with* the  ; grea. waterways to the j south, the scene:  of the gold strike being about 18 miles  from. Lardo as the railway,line runs. . A  _ Ifirst-class coach, two box cars, and ,a  caboose were 'brought into requisition' to  move the excursionists, and Poplar creek  was reached about 1 O'clock.  The land alorjg the Lardo l'iver falls  ��� chiefly' into the selections made by the  K. & S. railway company, but in therush  to get the camp started, those who xie-  ��� sired to do. business in it have squatted  ' where- it suited them best and will take  their chances with the railway company's.  land- agent; who wiil shortly* be oh the7  ground.   At-present the camp is wearing  .its swaddling clothes and consists of an  hotel, two buildings which promise to  blossom "out into general stores, and a  mimbeB of  prospectors'   tents  scattered  _ along_the rivrer_-bank,-or.hidden=in,a_nong^  the big timber which clothes the entire  section up to an elevation of 1500 or 2000  feet above the level of the river. Just  what the future of the camp will be can  be more "safely predicted in the course of  a few months than at present.  The excursionists were given four hours  in which to see the strikes that have been  been made in the camp. The show claim  of the camp is the Lucky Jack. This  property is but a few ���minutes walk from  the railway track and the excursionists  made straight for it when the train pulled  into the camp. The owners profess to  have about ten distinct veins on the property, on six of which they have free gold  showing, but they have done nothing but  surface scraping, and on the big showing  on the property they have done nothing.  In view of this the showing must be regarded as one of the most sensational in  the history of mining in British; Columbia. A little to the south of Poplar creek  rises a sheer bluff, which appears to be  about 50 feet high, and.from the crown of  this bluff for a distance of about 40 feet  there outcrops a ledge of white quartz,  standing put boldly in the face of the  bluff in a manner one would think would  challenge the attention and investigation  of the first prospector that came that way.  But it did not. Where it outcrops the  ledge looks to be about two feet wide but  the owners say its average width is nearer  four feet. There may be a question as to  the width of the ledge but therecan be ho  question biit that the quartz exposed; is  the richest that has been found in Koot-.  enay. Between the bluff from which the  ledge is showing and the river there has  fceen a rock slide, but through this and on  down to the creek there are disclosed out-  croppings of quartz. These may be large  pieces of float or they may be outcrop-  pings of the ledge, but it will require work  to determine which. The great body of  the excursionists were compelled to content themselves with looking at a number  of boulders which had been dug out of  the rock slide referred to, a small boy  with a big gun keeping the curious back  "from tne place where the ledge outcrops  in the bluff. The boulders, however, were  interesting, there being a great deal of  free gold showing wherever the rock-was  broken and these were promptly seized by  the excursionists as mementoes of their  trip.  There is all kinds of exaggerated talk as  to what the owners of the Lucky .Jack  property are going to do. They have a  big thing if they do not uncover another  pound of ore than what is showing, but  there is enough hot air in the camp just  now to make the stranger giddy, and -any  old thing in the way of quartz is readily  given a value of $100 to the ton.  The Lucky Jack is by no means the  only good thing that has beenyfouhd in  the camp., There are a number of others,  some of which, m the opinion of good  miners, are held in much higher regard  than the very showy Lucky Jack, and  what is of equal importance, the entire  section.is being closely prospected. There  are at the present time upwards of 300  calculation as to how he was going to get  on top of the jam, but again the current  fooled him and he went under the jam.  He was very much the worse for wear  when he came out on the down stream  side and too weak to make much of a  fight against a second jam which he could  make out a short distance below him.  When he went under the second jam Tom  had just about lost consciousness, but with  rare good luck he came from under the  second jam without getting caught on  anything. He was then being swept  down stream without any effort on his  part when his feet struck a sand bar. He  was too weak to standi but the touching  of the bar put new life in him. Ahead_of  him was a third jam, and as he was  swept up to.it. Tom managed to catch a  small log and drag himself safely on top.  When he got out he lost .consciousness.  Whenjhe came too he found that the jam  he was on was the -one he shoidd have  walked to in order to cross the river,:ahd  he hoofed it back to camp the sorest pros-'  pector in the district. He says Sunday's  experience is by long odds thc closest call  he ever had for his life ahd he won't attempt to ford the Lardo any more.  : -[Sp.ecial to.Tiie Evening Tribune.]  ; Slocan- CiTYy - A-ugust 10.���A meetiug  of Conservatives-was held here on Satur-  day;nignt inxthe association rooms, there  being a good attendance.

Tom' Collins, the well-known verse-  building prospector of Kootenay, who has  been in the Poplar creek district for the  past week, had a narrow escape from  drowning" 1 oh y Sunday. Tom had been  over on the north side of the Lardo river,  and in order !tb avoid the necessities of  walking a mile through the bottom lands  to a log jam crossing, he undertook to  ford the stream. When Tom got about  100 feet into the stream the current carried him, off his feet. This did not bother  him ve*ry muchj and he made up his mind  that he would swirn: the balance of the  distance. In this he made a mistake, as  the currant swept him along like a cork  in spite of his best efforts. With a bend  in the stream Tom saw that he was to go  up against a short log jam.   He made his  nanie'd delegates were chosen to attend  the nominating convention at Now Denver; on the loth instant, namely, W. S.  Johnson, T. D. Woodcock, T. McNeish,  and H. R. Jorand. C E. Smitheringakf;  B. A. Shatford, and H. D. Curtis were appointed alternates. Smitkeringale and  Shatford have received proxies to represent Enterprise and Winlaw's respectiv-  ly. ��� The delegation was instructed to vote  as a unit. The feeling is favorable to the  nomination of William Hunter of Silver-  ton.  [Associated Press to The Evening Tribune-l  Belgrade, August 10.���According to  reports received hege^'M. Rostkovski  abused' the^Turkis^'gendarnie, who was  doing sentry^dtity, for not saluting him  and called^him a "pig of a Turk." Then  .he struck" the sentry with his whip, saying : |'Next time, perhaps, you will know  me." The gendarme thereupon fired on  the consul. It is stated that M. Rostkovski was hated by the Turks on account  of his intense arrogance.  Tom Bennett   is up from Salmo and  brings tidings of a strike that has bceD  madeonSheep creek by F. _?. Drummond  The location is a new one,  and is'not  -more than 2000 feet from tile Yellowstone  mine,.and only a short distance from the  Queen; on whicli William Waldie is now  at work with a force of men.    The ledge   -  is 2}{ feet wide and holds that width for  750 feet, but it can be traced for nearly  two   miles.     The   ore  is   free, milling,  gold being visible with the naked eye.  Prospectors acquainted with the country  say that the free-gold belt extends to the  Bayohue group of claims,  on the .Kootenay lake slope, a distance of ten miles,.  and that the country' has not been .prospected.     These  gold finds, scattered as -  they are, should attract hundreds of pros--  pectors once more to Kootenay,  which is *  recognized as the best poor man's country  on earth.       G. W. Stead of Philadelphia has bonded  a number of craims near the Granite mine,  six or seven miles southeast of Nelson.  One of them is the Star,  owned by John,  Biomberg   and   the   Johnson    brothers,".  -  Oscar and Mike.  ' The bond was for' $30,- *  000, ten per cent of which was paid in  cash.    John P. Swedberg  is the owjner of  the other claims,  and it. is; reported * his _  .bond is for #15,000, of which tenper cent':  was cash.   All these claims are on the di-'.  vide between Sandy and Eagle creeks,  about a mile and a half from the Granite  mine, and the oro is all free milling -gold. v.  "Paul Johnson, who built'the Hall Mines  smelter at Nelson and. thejjsmelter; at  Greenwood is in Nelson for "a two-days' 'i  "stay. He*is down'from Prince of Wales.  Island, where, he- is building a copper  smelter.   In an interview 'he said*:  "We have a large force of men at work  on the new smelter at tho   Mamie mine,  owned by thc Brown-Alaska company on  Prince of Wale's Island: Five or six buildings are now in course of construction.  The new smelter, which will handle all  ���the ore from the Mamie, -will be in operation by the first of the year.    The smelter will have a capacity at the beginning  of about 400 tons a day, but we hope in  timo to increase'the capacity to 2000 tons  daily.    Excavations are being made and  grading is being done for buildings.    An  office,assay building, %varehouse and blacksmith shop are building.'   In two weeks a  =sawmill^Till^be'in"operationr^Altog"ether  the investment at the ��� mine' and in the  buildings and smelter will amount to $300,-  000. The Mamie mine was opened about ���  a year ago. but' no ore has been" shipped  yet.     Hadley  is- about   28'miles   from  Ketchika,   Alaska, - two ��� days' sail from  Victoria.    We are.working 70 men.   One  of our hardest troubles has been to clear  tlie ground from >. timber.-'  Vegetation is  wonderfully dense on the**island; because  of the mild climate~knc_ the intense rainfall.   There is a solidforestof trees out of  which we had to, excavate a space large  enough to place the smelting works.   The  trees range from 2 to 11 feet in diameter.  A crosscut in the new lower tunnel of the  Mamie shows the ore to be 87 feet wide,  ranging from 7 to 8 per cent copper, with  perhaps $1 in gold and silver.   It is pf  equal size with the wonderful deposits in  the Boundary, and has the same self-fluxing qualities, but it carries three or four  -  times as much value.    It will make one  of the greatest copper mines in the world.  Ours is not the only big thing on the '  island.    The Crackerjack is a' free gold  proposition which promises to-be a wonder.    There is from 8 to 17 feet of high  grade gold ore there, and Charles Lane,  the San Francisco, millionaire who made  a fortune in Nome, is developing it with  a crew of 70 men.   It has been under development for about a year.   We expect  to contract for about 100 tons of its silicious ores daily as a flux. with, our copper,  but in addition the Crackerjack will have  a stamp mill of its own."

MONDAY,  AUGUST  10, 1903  It takes time and a great amount of  kicking to secure what'every section of  the country is entitled to,  that is, good  mail facilities.   The Crow's Nest railway  has heen in operation five years, yet yesterday was the first time a Sunday mail  was ever received over it; but. from this  time on there will he a daily mail service  on the Crow's Nest road. For over a year  there has been a rail and steamboat ser-  -vice-between=Nelson=aiid^Trou_LLi^,_y_L1L  the mails between the two points are sent  around via Revelstoke, part of the way  over a wagon road.   Travellers and express and freight leave Nelson  for Trout  Lake at half-past two o'clock in the af-  noon, and are at Trout Lake the same  evening.   A letter from Nelsou for Trout  Lake leaves Nelson at 6:40 p.m. and goes  through  to  Revelstoke,    reaching, that  place in 28 hours.   It   lays   there   over  night, and the next day it is carried back  the same route which it came the day before, and reaches Trout Lake on the evening of the second day from Nelson.   If  the Nelson Liberal Association would devote just one meeting to discussing adequate mail facilities between Nelson and  Trout Lake, and pass a resolution demanding the establishment of a mail route between Nelson and Trout Lake, and  wire  the resolution to W.  A.  Galliher,  M.P.,  Ottawa, the chances are the new camp at  Poplar Creek would get a postoffice and  the people of Nelson, Kaslo, Trout Lake,  and Ferguson facilities they are entitled  to.    Grits, get a move on!  " political expediency.     He is a reader  " and a close observer and, perforce, must  " know that the old theory that the tariff  " is a benefit to the farmer has been ex-  " ploded   long    ago.     The    Repiiblican  " party of the States fooled0the farmer on  " that   proposition   for years.   In time,  " however, the farmer became intelligent  " and the clap-trap argument had to be  " dropped." If the contention of the Her-  ���ald   is right,  why lias not the Liberal  party had thej3ourage of its convictions?  It is a-Free Trade party by~wnvicti6^alTd"  a-Protection party in practice,  just as is  the Democratic party in the United States.  If Free Trade 'would be such a 'good, thing  for the farmer, is it not strange that the  farming   provinces   of Canada and the  great farming states of the United States  should send so many Protectionists to parliament and to congress?   The Cranbrook  Herald in saying that  " John Houston  " sacrifices   his   honest   convictions   to  "political expediency" is probably not  aware that John Houston is a printer and  not a politician, and, judging from the  Herald, printers are always looking for  the side of the bread on which the butter  is. -.
