SVOL. III. NO. 39.
FERGUSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA, NOVEMBER 7. 1901.
82.00 A YEAR.
A
The Territory of Our New Riding
Suggested by the Tribune.
ACCEPTABLE BI LARDEAUITES
New Conditions Make New Associates, but Need Not Alter Our
Commercial Relations.
WE MOST GJVE AND ME
Tbis province must and will soon
havo a redistribution of representation.
And after all is said and done tbe Nelson Tribune comes as near being right
as can be expected. We must be as
fair as possible, and though we bave to
accept new territory and acquaint ourselves witb new associates, the EAGLE
must confess tbat tbe division outlined
as follows is as near as we can expect
under the circumstances. The advent
of the railway somewhat changes the
old arguments against such a division.
And at all events the division need, in
no way effect the commercial relations
between the Lardeau and Kevelstoke.
The Eaole ia willing to let this camp
take a running chance wkh Kaslo as its
capital. Our population here a year
hence will run thn sbow anyway. The
Tribune says: According to the census
returns, Kevelstoke riding has a population of 3003. Surely these 3003 people
are not entitled to two members because the riding happens to have two
such Important towns as Revelstoke
and Trout Lake within its borders.
The Topic says tbere is nothing in
common between the people of the
Trout Lake mining division and those
of the Ainsworsh mining division; that
their trado relations ure in totally
different directions. The south ond 'of,
such a riding would bo at Balfour or
Kootenay lako and the north end at
the headwaters of creeks flowing into
Trout lake, approximately a total
��� length north and south of eighty miles,
^through the middle of which a railway
and its steamboat connections would
give the people direct facilities for
travel. A resident of Trout Lake City
could leave home at 8 o'clock in the
morning and be at Balfour by 2 o'clook
in the afternoon. The riding would be
made up of towns and camps situated
on streams all of which would flow into
Kootenay lake. No single divide would
be crossed. It would be one ofthe
ridings in Kootenay In which there
could not be any possible friction between rival towns. Trado that would
naturally belong to Kaslo could not be
claimed for Trout Lake, hence roads
that would lead to Trout Lake would
in no way injure Kaslo. Kaslo, as an
incorporated city, would very naturally
be tbe riding's main town*; but Kaslo
has never voted solid on auy question,
und what town in Kootenay has ? Tbe
Topic does not voice the opinions of
tho people in Its own town whon it says
thoro is nothing in common between
the two sections. Tbo following is an
extract from a letter received by the
Tribune from a firm now In business in
Trout Lake : "As soon as tbo Lardo&
Trout Luke branch of the C. P. R. is
completed, Nolson will be the headquarters forthe Trout Lake district."
As Kaslo Is midway between Trout
Lako City and Nelson, being 49 miles
from the former and 45 miles from the
latter, it seems that the Interests of
Trout Lake and Kaslo must be very
much the same. The riding would
havo the following poBtofflccs within
its limits: Ferguson, Trout Lake,
Lardo, Duncan City, Argenta, Kaslo
Whitewater, MoGulgttn, Ainsworth,
Balfour and Pilot Buy, and would have
a population of close on to 4000. There
uro throe newspapers printed* in the
supposed riding, namely, tho Ferguson
EAGLE, the Trout Lako Toplc^'and the
Kaslo Kootenaln, and if the Eagle and
the Topic could not get away with the
Kootenaiau in an election, they would
be no good."
Thon the Trlbuno disposes'1 of tho
Revelstoko riding in this way. A riding made up of tho Revelstoke, Lar
deau, Illecillowaet and Colden mining
divisions would be one lying along the
main line of the Canadian Pacific railway. It would be, with tbo exception
of the Lardeau mining division, a
riding in which operating a railway
would bo the main industry of the
people. All the towns and settlements
in such a riding would beon tbe main
line of the Canadian Pacific railway,
except Arrowhead and thoso in tbe
Lardeau mining division. It would be
a riding in which railway men would
have a chance to select ono of themselves to represent their Interests in
the legislative assembly, and no class
of men in the province are more
worthy of representation. All the
mileage of the C. P. R. in the supposed
riding is in the Puciflc division, therefore there could be no clash '.if interests
or cause of local jealousies as there
might be if one end was in ono division
and tbe other in another. The member
elected could be addressed by the
speaker and his fellow-members as the
' 'honorable member from the Main LI ne
in Kootenay." Such a riding would
bave a population of about 4000.
And the Slocan riding ns follows : A
riding made up of the Arrow Lake,
Slocan City, and Slocan mining divisions would be an important ono, seeing
that mining is tbe one business on
whieh all its people are dependent. Its
main towns would be Nakusp, New
Denver, Three Forks, Sandon, Silver-
ton and slocan City, all of which are
connected by railway and steamboat.
A common point like New Denver
eould be reached from either of theso
places In less than three hours. Eight
out of ten of tbe shipping mines iu the
Slocan would be ln tbe riding. Its
population would be in the neighborhood of 3500.
IIKASON THIS OCT.
There are some superficial people
who think that money spent in lavish,
ostentatious and riotous living is a
good thing because it gives employment to people. But tbat is assuming
that these people get tbeir money
rightly, which is not the case. They
get this money from the very people
they pay it back to for theso useless
and character-destroying expenditures.
Do you think it is a benefit if I charge
you twenty prices for oil and then give
you back some of It to groom my
horses, raise mo flowers, make me wine
or entertainment ? Do you think your
daughter is benefitod by the money sho
is paid for doing the kitchen work in
my family if I get the money to pay her
from renting you a farm, making a
profit off you on goods or loaning you
tools to work with ? You foolishly
support a social system that forces you
to pay a profit, und that profit you
imagine benefits you when you do
things for thoso wbo receive it. You
would, if you were sensible, have a
system that would glvo you tbe full
measure of what .your labor produces,
then you could have your daughter at
home, she could be doveloped to he an
ornament to the world, instead of a
drudge, you could huvo a fine home and
all the blessings of tho world. You
would havo to work, yes, but you should
work, and so should overy other person, but now you glvo up must of the
wealth to tboso who do not work, while
you and your family fool glad If you
are permitted to havo a few pennies
out of what you produce. If oxtrav-
agauco Is a good thing, then Rome
should have been n good thing for
labor, because they were vory extravagant���that is, the master class. If
expenditure by the rich, or employment itself is a good thing, then the
greater tho standing urniios of tbe
world, tbo better, for they give employment, the pay for whioh is taxed
out of you before it is paid back to you?
If so, how and why ?���J. A. Wayland.
Business. Men  No   Longer  Look
Upon Mining as a Gamble.
The Big Trusts Are Forcing Small
Capitalists to Seek Other Than
Commercial Investments.
"It is an undeniable fact," says the
New York Herald, thut the most
influential business men in tho world
have turned their attention to mining,
the source of nearly all wealth ; for
persons who have been enslaved to the
idea that tho only safe proposition was
a five per cent, or six per cent, security,
now realize that the many millions of
interest havo been lost to them through
heeding the advice of those interested
tn cheap money, and that among the
banking institutions of the west
eighteen and twenty per cent, per
annum is not considered a hazardous
western profit or excessive dividend on
tbe great majority of our gilt edged
mining securities, and further,
The Richest Men In Ihe World
are mining kings, many of whom have
grown powerful onough through the
proper application of originally u
moderate capital, and it is pi oven that

Smelter
"I fully expect our
30-ton smelter plant will
be ready by January 1st
to treat any and all ores
that may be in Ferguson
at the same rates as the
Trail or any other smelter
would, treat it if it were
at the smelter, thus saving all transportation
charges. "^-Charles If.

James Andorson, lessee of the local
saw mill hero, narrowly escaped death
last woek. One of the carriage tenders
lifted a board which the big circular
saw caught and like a flash whirled it
back, striking Mr. Anderson, tortitu-
utoly just as he was turning round, In
the ribs. He got off lucky, bowovcr,
and is not much tbe worse now, though
still very sore.
In railroads, farm mortgages, eastern
industrial and building associations,
the mining industry steadily advances,
making enormous profits for its supporters, .building great states and
cities, and points with pride to tho
American possession of 234 mines that
have paid iu dividends over 9025,000,-
000. "In mining investments extremely
largo amounts are not necessary to
make one successful, for the man of
moderate moans, properly advised, has
opportunities of quickly doubling his
capital. Under incorporation

through combining limited sums of
thousands thus equaling tho capital of
tbe individual millionaires, making
possible gigantic undertakings that are
productive of enormous revenue. The
dollar of tho man of moderate means is
equally as powerful as tho dollar of tho
money king. Both servo their purpose;
both aro entitled to tlieir proportionate
profits.
'���In legitimate mining a twenty-five
per cout. dividend is not considered
startling, and tbo mining interests of
the west are willing to pay that interest for the use of money, for by thc aid
of capital they
Open Up Tremendous Oro Hurtles
that lead to still greater fortune. Tho
employment of $10,000 in mining is
equivalent of $40,000 in most any othor
branch of industry.
"For years tho wondrous, profits of
tbe metal industries have been whispered among investors, who apparently
wero afraid to lot their neighbors know
thoy wore identified with mining, but
tho recent efforts of the financial czars
of the world In forming combinations
to control, first the markets of tbe
miners through tho "smelting trust"
und then the minos through the "Amalgamated Copper trust" have opened the
eyes of tho conservative and modern
Investors, nnd they aro making efforts
to obtain their share of tho metallic
wealth which nature has spread so
lavishly."
If mining is, as tho Herald says,
becoming moro and moro favorably
considered as a business by business
men, the apparent shyness of British
capital in our country cannot bo on
account of a lessened interest on tbe
part of British financiers in the mining
'ndustry as such, suggests tho Kamloops Standard. It has been said that
British capital will come to tho Puciflc
province when wo can show a long list
of dividend paying mines. This is
doubtless true, but in how many cases
has the failure to pay dividends on the
stook of British companies boen duo to
any fault of the province itself or its
legislation. It is well enough to make
sweeping assertions to the effect that
mining is handicapped by bud legislation, but other reasons must be taken
Into account. There is, however,
speaking generally, one thing to be
deplored in connection with British
capital invested in mining lu this
province and which accounts for a good
deal of the failure to make profits on the
Investments, and that is the attempt to
control the management from London,
which has so frequently resulted in loss
and consequently detriment to the province.   Too often have
British Capital nml British Incapacity
come hand In hand with thc natural
result that the owners of the capital
secure no dividends and tho people
whose well-meant but ill directed
efforts have resulted disastrously proceed to lay tho blame upon local
conditions which are no wise at fault.   .
IF NOT ELSEWHERE IT'S HERE.
Tho weather for tho past week has
boon averse to railway building und

W. L. MacKenzie King of Ottawa,
deputy minister of labor, has been sent
out to Rossland by the government to
investigate tbe strike situation. In
the meantime the scab Missourians
keep a coming.
Bernard McDqnald, Rossland's poser
as a union smasher, has been fired: the
Rossland Miner is for sulo, and luring

R. T. Bury has called a meeting In
tho Minors' Union hall for this (Thursday) evening for the purpose of organizing a literary and debating society,
which will help to pass the long evenings of this winter. There is plonty of

be a popular one.
PROFITABLE T1UP ALL BOUND.
Joseph C. Kirkpatrick has returned
from a two months' trip to his old homo
in Parrsboro, N. S. It Is over seven
years since Mr. Kirkpatrick last visited
bis old stamping ground, and it is unnecessary to remark that ho found
many changes in prevailing conditions
in the eust, which, however, havo beon
for tbo better, as many of thc old residents in the cent belt have grown well-
to-do. Mr. Kirkpatrick also visited
Moncton, N. B., Montreal and Toronto.
While invostors down thnt way uro
devoting their surplus money und
enorgy to lumbering und iron und coul
mining, they uro open for business in
tho western mining world. Tho Lardeau will probably receive a good deal
of benefit as a. result of Mr. Kirkpatrick'* trip, for he certainly is a practical
encyclopaedia of this district.

Rev. E. S. Rowe Alive to the Bes-
Interesta of the People.
A PREACHER'S TRUE MISSION
The Means of Production and Distribution Must Be Owned
by the People.
COMPETITIVE SYSTEM AT FAULT
Rev. E. S. Rowe, of Victoria, the one
Methodist preacher of this province,
has been delivering a series of addresses throughout the Kootenays on
subjects which arc of keen interest to
tho people���the social fabric. Mr.
Rowe is a man among men. He has
made a study of bis subject, and is not
only convinced of his own conclusion?,
but has the happy faculty of convincing his hearers. He is certainly on the
right track,a courso worthy of bis fellow
reverends, who are distressingly slow
in seeing the root of nearly all evil-
competition. Mr. Rowe in his lecture
at Nelson, recently, described how
machinery had supplanted men, till
there were moro men than there was
employment for und the machine from
an economic standpoint was taken more
care of and regarded as of moro consequence than thc man who operated it
bocause they could be easily replneci'..
Tho combinations of capital in railways, in trusts, and the various alliances of capital have changed the
situation so tbat small concerns havo
boon absorbed or driven out of business
It is practically tho case that the few
heads of these large concerns control
the bulk of the employment for between
70,000,000 and 80,000,000 pooplo and
they are compelled to go to them for
employmont. This had cut down
individual opportunity. On tho othc-
bund, tho people were becoming bottc:-
cducuted and the workers understood
complicated economic questions ant!

on around thorn as well as tho capital is 8
and wero endeavoring by their bea^
efforts to get what thoy thought they
were entitled to, a just'Bharc of tho
product of tbeir toil. This was ono o'
tho several answers he gave to "Where
are wo at ?"
Mr. Rowe counselled moro work op.
the part of overybotly for tbo good o'
humanity and less of simply bendin^
energies to tho one object of securing
money. Ho believed that thero should
bo less adjusting of wages under thc
law of supply and demand idea anil
thought that a minimum wage and u
compulsory arbitration law should bo
passed. In conclusion ho counselled
his hearers to bo careful how they use:!

class of men to tho legislature. It wa-;
a forcible and logical address and was

applause.
THE PRESENT-DAY METHOD.
Extension, British Columbia, was
recently a town of 3,000 people, lt wa-'
a mining town. Tbe mines are still
operated but no ono lives in tho cluster
of dwellings and business houses thai
bear tho name. The owner of tin
mines, Premier Dunsmuir, established
a town several miles away and told his
men that nono could have labor who
would not move to tho now town! And
the thing was done. Tho weeping,
wailing and guashing of tooth of thc
property owners of Extension, as they
saw thoir savings confiscated, was of
no avail. But pdivato property is suoh
a blossing! Dunsmuir is one of these
people who oppose socialism becauso It
is confiscation ! But ho would not confiscate the value of others, O, no ���

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1901.
The shareholders of the C. P. R.
do not operate that system. They
merely own the shares, and hire the
brains to manage what they own.
The managers hire the men to operate the whole works. What is
there to prevent the whole people
owning the C. P. R., as well as
every other privately-owned trust?
for it is coming in our time���which
was unexpected by many ol us.
With a map of this district, such
as the Eagle is selling for one dollar, and the Eagle for one year at
two dollars you can acquire a fair
knowledge of this camp. The
Eagle soars high but is always in
touch with the people. We make
mistakes, but it is our constant
endeavor to give all the news of lhe
camp all lhe tim��. Blow in with
that three dollars.
Many men who hold mining
claims in this district are dead broke,
and quite willing to give some one
with money a chance to explore and
prove their ground. No cash-down
payment is necessary (though always acceptable) from an investor
who means business. If you want
to try your luck'at mining in this
new and growing camp come bere
prepared to go to work on the property acquired, and the Eagle can
assure you that there will be no
squabbling about the'terms, so long
as you go ahead and develop the
prospect. The property owners ot
this camp are reasonable in most
instances. No trouble to get a
working bond if you mean business.
The long-bond-r.o-work fakir need
not apply. There are worthy properties near Ferguson partially
developed, which can be examined
and worked any time of the year.
The railway will pass over some of
them next summer. Come in and
see them now, and help us to help
yourself,
Many owners oi mining prospects
find plenty of money, at times, to
buy bad whisky, Ir-ick the tiger, and
raise all kinds ot disturbance; but
few of them get further than to ask
the sporting editor to have a drink,
when it comes to footing the expense ol running a newspaper which
will some day attract the attention
of an outside investor who will
probably make those same prospectors wealthy in one day.
There are some things men can
get along without, but the almighty
manipulator ol human events has so
arranged it lhat no one interested
in this district can afford to cease
reading the Eagle or do without
the new map which the Eagle is
selling for one dollar. Over too
sold already. Send us an eagle���on
one ot those iron or greenback dollars���and acquaint yourself with,
and help advertise this great and
growing white metal producing
camp.      	
There is good money in mining,
and especially will this be the case
in the Lardeau district. The Slocan
made its progress after the railway
built in. The same will be the case
in this district. To get in on the
ground floor, ahead of the railway,
you must be here this winter. II
you have a little money and want to
go into mining at the right stage of
the game come to Ferguson right
now. Don't wait until real estate
and mining prospects reach "boom"
prices. ���
The wage system is a peculiar
one. An employee produces for the
employer at a figure per day which
gives the employer a profit. The
employer may have nothing himself
but he sells his employee's product
to his own or some one else's employee. If the employees are
granted a raise in wages, the cost
is added to the production, and the
employees must again pay their own
wages. Were the employees to cooperate and do their own producing
���each one being an equal shareholder���doesn't it seem reasonable
lo think that the present-day employer would very soon have to
become a producer also ? Then
what is the matter with us all cooperating ; tortn a people's trust,
and run it on exactly thc same
principles as the private trust of
today, except that we would produce
for consumption only���not profit.
The big private trusts have demonstrated beyond a doubt the benefits
and practicability of co-operation,
and the utter folly of competition.
��� it -is reasonably estimated by
economic students that the Rockefellers" incoms is increasing so
enormously each year that in twenty
years from now they and their
associates can buy, and may own
the earth. It will take until that
day for some of the little shysters,
who think they own the earth, to
wake up. Then the people will
step into Mr. Rockefeller's shoes
and we'll have socialism, whether
you want it or not, for how arc you
going to avoid it ? Money will buy
the earth, and as each dollar
invested increases the power of the
buyer, those unwilling to sell will
lie forced lo sell. Do you sec it
coming ? It makes a socialist smile
<e see. the other fellows, squirming,
To the uninitiated or uninformed,
says the Western Miner, the mention of mining or mining stocks is
at once associated with speculation
or gambling, as lormerly were the
appellations horse dealers or jockeys
at once connected with everything
that was not legitimate. At the
present time the dealer in horse
flesh is a recognized lactor in the
modern-business world, while the
jockey is now classed in a profession
that requires study, application,
good judgment and honesty. While
the element of chance is not eliminated from mining, neither is it
eliminated from any act of virture in
life, from birth to the grave.
"Nothing ventured, nothinggained,"
is a trite and true saying that applies
from a child's first step to the founding or thc largest industrial undertaking. In mining, so great has
been the progress, so wonderful has
been the progress, that today there
is less left to chance than in any
other pursuit or industry under the
sun, it honestly conceived and intelligently conducted. With scarcely
an exception, the leading business
and financial men of the country are
today interested in mining in various
forms���and successfully, too.
The only remedy for the present
industrial warfare is to give the
producer the product of his toil.
The way to do this is for all the
people to form a trust which will
absorb all the privately-owned trusts
of today. Then each of us will be
a shareholder, and what we do not
receive for our work, earned -under
the best of social conditions, will go
into a public treasury for thejpublic
good, and not into the pockets of
the present-day money-grabbers.
Today our God is money. And with
a system of competition this cannot
be changed. With a people's trust
��� socialism ��� our natural God,
love, would reign. Rev. E.S.Rowe
ot Victoria, B. C, is one of the few
professed followers of Christ's teachings who has these convictions, and
the courage to say so, whether his
money-ruling congregation of
hypocrites think so or not. Like
the days of Christ's residence on
earth, the man who unfearingly
takes the side of justice and right is
persecuted and sneered at by the
puppies of aristocracy���il not put to
death after the fashion of Christ.
But Mr. Rowe's name will go down
in history as one of the moulders ot
a socialistic government in this province and in America. Then the
God of Love will rule and the horde
of present-day sky-pilots will be out
of a job, with the opportunity, of
course, of earning an honest living.
li njust and ungodly social conditions
make people more interested in their
bank account than drafts on
eternity. Hence the need of such
men as Rev. E. S. Rowe.

Another "over-production" period of

What else can be expected under a

FERGUSON
Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
w
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during the past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but the new finds and many test
ore shipments arc exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
B B C A U S B
H
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks;-on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
camp arc located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point where
mining men coining into the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore from
these mines coming down the
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are it
will reach Ferguson.
BECAUSE there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
Bat why give other reasons:    We have the mines, the pay roll, the natural geographic
cat location, the supply trade, the banking institutions, unlimited water power for all    ,.
purposes; and the right kind of people to make a town.    The ore shipments, increasing
business, and money and enterprise wilt do the rest.    Come here and see for yourself.

He Is shut out from the sunlight, ln the glimmer of the lamps;
He Is' cut off from the sweet air In the sickly
fumes nnd damps;
He must toll In cramped positions, he must
take his life in hand,
For he works in deadly peril that but few can
understand,
But he docs it all in silence, and he seldom
makes a kick,
Which Is why I sing the praises of the marl
behind tho pick.
He unlocks the bolted portals of the mountain
to the stoics
Hid in Natures vast exchequer in her treasure
house of ores.
He applies the key dynamite and the gates aM
backward rolled.
And tbe ancient rocks are riven to their secroit
heart of gold,
Things of comfort and beauty and of usefulness
aro mined,
By this brnve and quiet worker; he's a friend
of humankind
Who, though trampled down and underpaid,
toils on without a kick,
So I lift my hat In honor to thc man behind
