THEY HAVE
p��
A Body Of Ore Enoountered on
Tho Union Jack, 10 Feet
Wide.
The Ore Is Low Grade, But Could
Be Shipped Profitably After
Concentration.
British Tariff Enquiry.
Thero were 24 Rinks That Took
Part.   The Affair was Most
Buooessful.
On tho south fori; of the Lardeau
river, three miles Irom Ferguson, and
less than ono and a half miles Irom tho
Silvor C.ip reduction works, lies the
Union Jack group 0[ ejgi*t claims,
owned by J. C. Kirkpatrick, Low
Thompson and Harry Carter.
There was a good surface showing,
and lots of work has been done, one tunnel being over S00 feot long, but nothing was found of importance up till
the present winter. Messrs, Thompson
and Kirkpatrick determined to kcop a
couple of men working all winter, believing thore was a good miuo in that
ground, and being so near iown, and at
the samo timo lying between the Nettle
L. und Silver Cup mines, the property
was woll worth moro money boing
spent. Since the snow fell, very good
progress has been made, and early in
January the main lead was tapped by
the crosscut tunnel with good deptii
under ground. Whero the lead was
cross cut, it was found to be 10 foot
wide, and all ore of rather low grade,
only assaying $30 to the ton. However,
thero is an abundance of stoping
ground, and apparently a great amount
ot this 41 ro.
Tho noxt question is, will the Silver
Cup reduction works treat custom ore ?
Should they he tempted on the completion of their works to contract to
treat this ore, good profits ought to be
bo mndo at mining it.
Mr. Thompson believes that a rich
body of oro Is near, und that before
spring ho can show lots of shipping ore,
so thut the big lead will not need to be
handled at present, but wait till transportation is cheaper, and better means
are at hand for treating low grade ore.
Joseph Chamberlains tariff commission was on tho 80th of January mailed
to all manufacturers appearing in trade
directories in the United Kingdom, in
an onquiry form with regard to trade
conditions as all'eetod by foreign tariffs.
Tho replies to theso questions are do
signed to form the basis of a further inquiry, and verbal testimonies on which
tho commission intends to formulate a
tariff bill which it will submit to the j

Tlie New Manager.
Tbo newly appointed manager for the
Gt'otst Western Mining Co., Ltd., and
the Stlvni' Cup Mine?, Ltd., Mr. A. .1.
G. Sv.'inney, arrived in Ferguson last
woek from England, and entered upon
his duties at once. An Eaglo reporter
called on him on Wednesday at Ins of-
ibe;. in tho Groat Western bloek, and
found an approachable, agreeable and
clear headed gentleman, ivho, whilo he
has ilttlo to say, gives one the impression that he knows a good deal about
mining and mining properties.
Ho did not havo much to say about
tho two big mines that are now under
his management, saying the timo was
premature to say anything for publication, but at tho samo timo bo felt
that tho properties gave promise of a
bright future. Referring to the Silver
Cup, ho said tho discharging of part of
the force last woek was but temporary, and tbo force would be increased
as soon as tho reduction works wore
completed. Tho men woro not really
discharged, but the'most of them transferred to tho company's works at Five
Mile. Ho could not say when thc
works would ho started. That was a
matter, ho said, that depended too much
on conditions that may arise, to enable
ooo to judge witli any degree of accuracy. Tho weather was certainly very
good for them.
Another Surprise Party.
On Monday night, a surprise party
deviled by Mrs. Jowett, of Truut Lake,
and consisting of several sleigh loads of
young people, drove to Ferguson and
dropped in on Mr. and Mrs. S. Da;e.v.
The sleighing ami tho weatbon were
both delightful, and tho partyites were
enthusiastic, so a very ple.u-aut time
was spent, Mr. & Mrs. Daney bavo a
vevy comfortable home, and they are
good entertainers, and their popularity

The Transfer Completed.
Messrs. Hodge, Sutherland, Crilly,
Black and Pool returned Tuesday night
from Camborno, whore they went on
Monday to attond a spooial meeting of
tlie directors of Tbo Great Northern
Mines, Limited.
The meeting was (or thc purpose of
tailing action on the resolution that
was approved by tho shareholders of
The Ophir-Lade Co., Ltd., at -their
meeting on tbo 17th of January, for tho
salo of their property to tho Great
Northern Mines, Ltd.
At tho meeting on Monday last, tho
transfer of the property was finally
concluded.
E. M. Morgan attended tho meoting,
coming over from Poplar around by
Nelson, and returning the same way
Lloyd's Weekly, of Loudon, dated
tho 31st Jan., says that Mrs. Florence
Maybrick, tlio American woman who
was serving a lifo sentence for having
poisoned her husband, was released
from tho Aylesbury Foraalo Convict
Prison at (I.Jo o'clock on the morning
of January 25, on a special licence.
Her mother, the paper says, visited her
ou Saturday, Jan. ":), and evidently was
the bearer of the news. Tho governor
of tho prison on Sunday conferred with
the prison official.*] with a view to ar.
ranging lor the departure of tho prisoner, which was carried out.
Mrs. Maybrick, accompanied by ono
of the prison matrons, entered a (dosed
carriage and drove to Aylesbury station, and from there went to a privato
home not far from the metropolis. She
will remain at the homo for a short
period, in order to recuperate, to await
the completion of certain formalities
which will give her freodora of movement notal lowed to persons on ordinary
tieket-oMoave.
Mrs. Maybrick, the paper concludes,
during tlio last fow months in prison,
wus employed in tho lightest work, as
a reward for good conduct.
The Associated Press lias been un
ablo to confirm tho reported release of
Mi*. Maybrick.

Tho directors did not tako timo to | charged about 20 men last week,

had to hurry bask to their homes, this
being tlio second trip to Camborno on tt
. similar errand during the month,
ment This partial close down was
deemed advisable until the reduction
works are completed at Fire Mile.
The Hookey Match.
One ofthe most interesting features
of bonspiel week at Revelstoke was the
hocky match botween Rossland and 11...
home team. All theavallabls room for
tho accommodation of visitors was occupied by thoso who enjoy tho sport, and
a most interesting and rather clever
game of hockey was played, tho home
team going down to defeat by a score
ol 8*11. Tho result was caused not so
mu.'h by lho superiority of tho visitors'
hookey playing, us tbo fact that The
Rovelstoke players had never practiced
togethor befoVo thoy wont in to this
game. Tlie home toam have excellent
material, and with a little practice they
should bu ablo to hold their own with
anything in the province. Tho Kooto.

Mr. J. E. Benson, of tho Imperial Bunk,
Baid:"PorBovelstoke,Bonsqn was a tower of strength, scoring a goal by a long
shot almost the length of the rink.
Considering that the homo team had
never beforo played together, and that
none of tlio players hud had much practice this year, tho result is not a great
disappointment." r

The Lanark Group.
Ole Suudberg, of Albort Canyon, Dr.
W. E. Newcombe, of Ferguson, and V.
M. Westfall & Co., of Trout Lake, have
purchased tho Lanark group of claims
at Laurio. This group consists of
fifteen crown granted claims and-frac-
tinns, aud was formerly owned by thc
Lillooet, Fraser river and Cariboo Gold
Fields, Limited. All ihu buildings on
the property, as well us the town of
Laurie, are include! in the deal, ft is
staled that thu original purchase price
ofthe Maple Leaf claim, included in tin
abovo group, was $80,000. From tho Is
abella elaim, the old owners shipped
somo vary rich ore.
Ole Sandburg will ho In Ferguson before spring opens when plans lor the
development of the property will bo arrived at. Nothing will be dono until
the biunv is gone. The Eagle feels safe
in predicting that the new proprietory
will manage tbe property with more
business ability und success than the
Homo-Payne outfit, forthe new owners
arc ull good men.
The Load Bosnia.
G, O. Buchanan, of Kaslo, has now
in his possession all the necessary
blank forms for tho distribution of tbo
lead bonus. Claims aro to bo made under Ihe regulations that camo Into
foroe on July 1st, 1003, and include
all amounts produced up to tho ond ol
the month. Full Instructions regarding
thc distribution of the bonus may be
had on application.
The Swede Group.
Phil O'Connor brought nows from
Poplar that tho development of the
Swede group is meeting with good results. Last week a very lino body of
ore was encountered, of a better grade
than what has been soon fn tho last
fortnight. The force has also been
somewhat increased since room was
provided.
The Price of Lumber in Not To Be
Raised.   Much Business
Transacted.
The lumbermen's manufacturing association held their annual meeting at
Cranbrook on Monday of last week,
says the Cranbrook Herald. There
was a largo attendance, and a great
deal of important business was transacted, but tho .conference was held behind closed doors. However, for the
benefit of tlie public, it might bo stated
that nothing was dono regarding any
increase in prices. This statement Is
mado for the reason that some peoplo
imagine there is only one purpose for
such meetings, and that is to boost the
price of lumber.

done. We have particularly in
mind the "Alpha" group behind
Ferguson and the " Lanark" group
at Laurie. Our remarks apply in
pait also to other properties near at
hand which will be worked.
Then tbere has hardly been a fortnight pass since the snow fell that a
deal ot large proportions lias not
been put through, and the majority
of I hem on properties situated somewhere in lhe great Lardeau mineral
belt, and mostly for free milling gold
properties. Muny of these deals
were put through by local men.
"The Ferguson Eagle is in error
i:i attributing tbe editorials whicli
lately appeared in lhe Mining Record, criticising Tbe Great'North-
urn Mines, to E.Jacobs, the Boundary correspondent nf lhe Mining
Record, Iri his mining news Mr.
Jacobs confines himself lo facts, and
is too much of a gentleman to stab
in the dark. Mr, Jacobs lias done
more, through bis correspondence
to advertise tlie resources of British
Columbia than any other writer.
The editor of lhe Eagle is perhaps
nol aware that H. Mortimer-Lamb
was editor of the Boundary Creek
Times for a few weeks when it was
lirst issued."--Poplar Nugget.
It is certainly quite probable thut
we were incorrect in attributing' the
editorial in the II. C. Mining Record
to the pen ol lu Jacobs, and if so,
we are sorry lo have brought that
gentleman's name in where it had
no place. It is news lo us to learn
that H. Mortimer-Lamb once was
editor of Ihe Boundary CreekTimes,
We knew tbat Mr. Jacobs once edited that'journal, and we knew that
he was, nt the time our article appeared, a writer on the Mining Record ; hence our wrong conclusion.
The paragraph in the Mining Record that led us astray more than
anything else, was as follows:
" Did not the present scribe when
editing a weekly newspaper in lhe
Boundary in (lie early days meet
with scepticism enough to turn his
hair gray."
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The British parliament opened on
the second inst., nnd the session is
looked forward to wilh great interest, not only in England but all over
the world. The reason why the ses-
sion will be so important, is because
'leople are very much interested to
learn what changes, if any, in the
fiscal policy of the country will be
attempted, for the question is bound
to be brought up in the house. The
government will have a more united
opposition to lace in tbe liberal party than lor several years, and this,
together with the dissensions in the
conservative party, would give a
united Irish parly achance to secure
the passage of legislation to suit
them. Many expect the Balfour
government to be put to sore straits
before the session is-over, for it is
Relieved that Chamberlain has a secret treaty with Balfour, and that
some tarilT amendments will be introduced.
The Rossland Miner issued a
special illustrated supplement ol the
Lardeau country this week. W. B,
Pool's portrait is produced, and a
good likeness it Is. The history of
lhe Lardeau country is given very
fully, and the supplement is a most
creditable production.
LOCAL MEN TO THE FORE.
It looks as if lh.re would bea
great deal of activity in Lardeau mining circles next season. Thc district is as yet sparsely populated,
tind still we have a fair number of
men who, though they have not
large means for speculation, are yet
willing lo take a chance. Such
chances, wisely pre-considered, have
in the past proven of immense profit
to the individuals. The chances
that one takes in thc Lardeau are
not so great as in most mining
camps ; thai is, in respect lo the mining properties, the management
being, however, another tiling. It
seems as if one takes as great a
chance in the matter of one's associates and with the management as
witli the properly.
A number ol valuable properties
that have been partly developed, and
on which nothing has been done for
several years, have been purchased
by men who mean to make a turnover quickly, and work will be started just as soon as the snow is gone
sufficiently to permit of this being]
