FRIDAY, AUGTST 22. 191*2.
LOCAL CONDITIONS.
The present summer has been an
unusually good   one  for work  in
point of weather  and  yet  work in
the  hills  nnd  elsewhere   was very
lute   in  starting.    Outside ol   the
regular   work   at   the  mipes   and
necessary   assessments   on   claims
there  was little  done until Ihe beginning* of August.    Consequently
there were numerous idl*. men about
town, the merchants were not getting the trade they antic pated and
times were generally dull.    Since
the beginning of August, however,
there hns been a change and now if
it were not for the strangers who
are arriving daily there would be no
idle   men.    Trade   lias  picked up
wonderfully and all the merchants
me kept busy putting up orders for
the hills and supplying a consequent
increased   local   trade.     Certainly
Ihere is not  much money floating
about, but there  is a great deal being earned  and it will  not be  long
b fore everybody will have money
to spend and it will be spent freely.
Tne Old Gold  and Primrose  are
working a good lorce of men and
having started so  late  this  season
work  will be  continued much later
than in former years il weather wi
permit.  The Black Warrior worked
last  winter till  provisions ran  out
an 1 Ihis year it will be seen to lhat
Bnojj-h   i> packed  to  the mine  to
avoid  a recurrence of last winter's
trouble.    At the Nettie L. a great
Jeal of outside work is being done
in  preparation  to  accommodate  a
large force of men during Ihe winur,
when it is expected  that a  large
quantity of ore will be shipped.   At
the Silver Cup preparations are also
being made on a large scale for the
winter's oulput of ore, which  it is
hoped will be greatly in  excess of
all Ijrmcr y.ars.    This can easily be
done with the improved facilities (or
handling lhe ore.    The Triune w II
be  one of the steady shippers as
soon as the tramway is completed.
The management hope to send down
lo the smelter during the coming
���i inter a large daily output.    A \ ery
much increased number of men will
be employed this fall   and winter
over any previous  time and   this
means a big pay roll for the town of
Ferguson   and   prosperity for the
whole district.
The Manitoba Free Press has out
a neat supplement devoted to lhe
crops of Manitoba and the North
West Territories. This has been
compiled by a slaff of special correspondents, who have visited all
the principal grain growing districts
of the west, and the Free Press
submits the whole to the public as
an issue well qualified lo give Ihe
residents in the west some adequate
idea of the promises of the present
season. The acreage for Maniloba
and the Territories combined is
given as a total of 2,624,637 of
wheat, which means at the least
60,000,000 bushels, while the oat
crop is estimated at 40,000,000,
which will make llic harvest of the
tivo principal grain crops in the
west one hundred million bushels.
There will also be a considerable!
increase in the output of other,
grains and flax. Attention is directed in thc supplement to the j
illustrations giving half tone'
reproductions ot photographs I
ot the ripening wheat fields taken
at various points the last day of
July. They show the wheat as it
stands, tall, strong and even, stretching away to Ihe horizon. The issue
reflects great credit on the Free
Press  management  and is
