It was not an attack upun them, but un

Kdmond Barton, preini.ii'of Australia, und Utehard Seddon, the New J.ra-
lund prime minister, both made
speeches ou thc 5tb lust, the former at
a banq let at the Savage club ** iti ihe
latter when ho wus presented with the
freedom of his native town, bt. Helena;
Lancashire, und both piopbe-ied that
the conference of colonial premiers in
London would ultimately bear fruit.
Mr. Barton said that though littlo
might bo committed to paper ut thc
present meeting o( the premiers, thero
was an earnest desire in tho colonies
for closer relations with the mother
country and union of.British citizen*

would bo made iu that direction.

speech, siti.l that c mtlnental nations

A considerable amount of space has
been devoted by tho Eagle to the wonderfully rich free gold properties of tbe
Fish Creek camp. This was done because thoir great extent und richness
were but recently demonstrated and
some of the men who were instrumental in bringing Fish Creek into
prominence were the two ��� Messrs.
Pool and Young of Forguson���wto had
most to do with converting tho town of
Ferguson from a mere prospectors
camp into a promising and thriving
mining centre. This these two gentlemen did by backing up their confidence
in the mining claims of the district by
persistently and energetically prosecuting development work on ' their
claims as fast as money could be secured until now their syndicato owns
not one, but several mines on a shipping basis und worth a big pllefof
money. This syndicate do not take
hold nf a mining' claim  without lirst
thoroughly investigating It and tbat
tbeir judgment Is sound hus been demonstrated time after timo. We were
therefore glad to learn that our leading operatoi-S had entered the Fish
Creek camp because, they knew they
would do uo dilly-dallying, bnt go right
ahead and prove their property.
However, what we wanted to say is
that Fish Creek has not nil the free
gold lodges in the Lardeau. There are
a number of claims near Ferguson with
just as rich oro us Is found on Fish
Creek, und ono property in particular,
the Ophir-Lade, under bond to the
ubove mentioned syndicato, has an
abundance of freo milling ore and
telluride of a quality not exceeded In
any country. ,
A large amount of work wns done I
lust season aftor tho bond waB effected,!
and a trial shipment was made to Trail.
This shipment proved highly satisfactory und netted eleven hundred dollars
per ton. Work Is to bo resumed very i
soou and a quantity of the ore is to be
shipped next full.

Ureftt Discovery.
A very important discovery to mine
operutors and all steel nnd Iron workers
bus just been discovered and put into
practical operation by John Copes, a j
citizen und miner of the Boulder, Colo-1

a chemical Combination, has ben patented und Is a sure, quick and safe
mains of tempering steel or iron, rendering it so hard and tough that Inclining Is impossible by tlio application of
reasonable power or pounding. Drills
tempered by Mr. Copes' Inyentlon nre
absolutely free from temper checks and
will stand for boring through double
the distance in the hardest kind of
granite than those tempered by the
ordinary water method andean be used
quickly by any ono. The process itself is exceedingly Blmple,. consisting
of u malcalile compound placed In a
narrow trough ready for use und lhe
drill is tempered by forcing it down
into the malleable compound and allowing It to cool. Tbe process hus given
great satisfaction to all who have used
it. Those wbo are interested can niuko

THE TRIUNE.
It.might he as well to set the
reading, public   right    concerning
rumors .Of   gregt   and   wondrous
jtrijtes on the Triune, and tales of
immense bodies of ore, told by penile who hardly know the difference
between a "horse find a wild cal,"
or a "hanging wall or pig lead,"
and who consequently get  them-
ielves as well as others into trouble
by their exaggerations, and  ultimately give the camp a black eye,
The Triune to-day is nearer to be*
���ng a mine than ever before in its
brief history.    As a prospect it has
hardly been equaled in B. C. or else*
where, and as a mine it is hoped the
name may be said.   The prospet t
itage of this property is closing
rapidly and giving way to the mote
substantial name "mine."   All who
are familiar with mines and minii g
know what this  means  and  can
readily  discriminate.    At  present
two.short crosscuts are being run
towards the foot wall proper, whicli
ies n feet distant and consists ol
bonded zones of graphitic schist.
Ft is against and with this formation that the mine proper is to ht
looked for.   The above mentioneu
Crosscuts are being run to actually
'���and  not theorietically demonstrate
that the recent strike made is continuous.
Since the work started one of the
cuts has partly crossed a fine body
iof carbonates and high grade lead
'and tetra hidrite (��ray copper). This
being so far proven leaves hardly a
doubt of the ore body continuing ot<
and down, but taking no chances
another is being run to further prove
it. Upon proof of existance, then
lower and Ionger.cuts will be well.
. When the snow is practically off tht
project is to run a lower tunnel,
thereby getting away from the grass
roots, gaining a desirable depth anil
as well, as to be hoped1 for, additional values. \   .
Depth has in this district, as well
.is in those adjacent, demonstrated
this latter piece of flattery to be
true, but obly work and not heresny
will prove it. Though not officially
handed out, it is more than likely
that a tram line will be run Irom
the mine thi.': summer to a station
in the timber.. This great advantage will allow of the property being worked tb its fullest extent,
winter and summer seasons alike.

Tbe strikers felt more encouragement

AJD FOR FBRGUSON'B HOSPITAL
Thc miners and business men of
Perguson have united to erect a hospital hore. This Is an absolute necessity as thero Is no place In which wo
can properly care for a sick man who
dont happen to bave a home of his own.
There has been about,SI.500 subscribed
towards the hospital locally and tbe
Kagle his been requested to receive
subscriptions from outside points wblch
will be acknowledged through tbo
columns of the Kagle each week.
There Is something like $1,600 mote to
raise und we hope that those who have
made money In this camp will remember those who work sway from tl;.-'
comforts of older communitlo.* and send
along a liberal sum to help in the good
work. Tlie hospital will lie owned ah'd
operated by the members of Lardeau
Miners- Union. Address all subscriptions to the ICaglo.
