T 013 SITUATION WEtL PCT.
The paragraph below is from the
Nelson Tribune, but the reason for the
present stagnation is not given. No
ono seems to doubt the moi-its of this
province as a mineral producer; but - i
great many can sec at a glance th it
wo are tho creatures of cii-cumstanc es,
aud the fact of the matter is there i fill
bo no more activity until tlio gov eminent stops in and comes to on c aid.
We don't mean a bonus when v> -e say
aid; but wo mean that tlio government must build and operate s ,meltors,
relineries, etc., and stand ready to
buy all the raw product tho r alncrs can
produce. In other words tb,e government will "have to go into ' iho mining
business! tho same as th ,ey did tho
butter making business on tho prairie,
which thoy so successfully placed upon
a sound paying basis. We are tied
baud and loo; by tho huge private
trusts���railways, smelti u-s, etc.���and
."or thc samo reason tl :iat a chicken
cannot bo put back in i' m shell, it will
be found impossible ' ;o rosurl-ect the
mining business in Bi ,-itish Columbia
under present conditio js. Kcmovo all
tho taxes if necessa ry; but let tho
people build, own ai id operate thoir
own moans of trcatnu ,nt, nnd their owu
market, and keep i ho profits in their
own treasury. The'oack number who
imagines that a hun dred aud one Jerkwater privtttely-ow ned smelters, etc.,
will sec us out of (ihe present dilemma
must be purposely blind. It is co-operation wo want, a j .cople's trust, to buy
and care for the r aw product as fast as
wo can produoe 1';,
The Tribune u iks: "ft is notstraugo
that the men w)jo are practical metallurgists and sn loiter managers are of
ono opinion us -to the worth of British
Columbia as 0 l Dining country. Those
men handle tin- ores mined in British
Columbia, aud uro therefore in a good
position to jr.dge of tho values contained in the ore. Last week Dr. Lo-
donx of Now York, a copper buyer and
metallurgist,, gave apronounced opinion
as to the wo rtli of our gold-copper ores.
To-day William V. Nuwall, who represents tlio ol tlc-st smelting and refinery
works on th.e Pftclflo Coast, is equally
us proiiouno sd as to tho worth of British Colunibi a'sSilver-lead mines."
Th ere ia a rumor afloat that the
Unit ed States lead combino is negotiating for tho St. Eugene mine. The
inf. ii-cnco is that the combino fears that
th-1 enormous productive capacity of
ti io great iloyie mine may interfere
v pith its cinch.
This rumor has object lesson attachments. If the combine can buy
and shut down the St. Eugene it could
also buy and shut down any smelter or
refinery built in Canada by private
capital. It could not buy a government-owned refinery, which would
permanently protect tho small and
large producer alike. Government
ownership and operation of lead
refineries is what is wanted and it bas
got to como sooner or later.���Sandon

working at considerable of a disadvantage. The shack built last fall, and
filled with supplies, was carried n. ��� :r.

are now running a tunnel about 100 feet

in another few weeks a big pack train
will bo steadily engaged packing down

FerguBOnWB of the owners, in <-nu

property tho year round if possible.

nglisli Shareholders Have Secured
A Controlling' Interest
Hade Known on tlie 10th
There is a little evolution going on
just now in connection with tbe Great
Western company, owners of thc Nettie L. and Ajax on Nettie L. hill. An
old country company, or the old country
shareholders iu tho present company,
said to bo men who recognize tho need
of practical and economic management
without tlie usual frills, have at last
secured a controlling interest in Ferguson's Lo Roi. A. E. Klneaide basso'.:!
his shares, something like 100,000, for
$31,500 spot cash; and oilier well known
local men have been bought oil", all of
which can bo mado public after the annual meeting of the company in Forguson, on thc 10th inst. Tho EAGLE is
informed that W. B. Pool will still be
manager.   Judging  from local move-

A SKl'NK IN EVIDENCE.
.1. J. Langstaff, an editorial parody
ou a newspaper immiUition called the
Topic, says tho location of tho Nottie
L. road has displeased Forgusonites,
nonce the wago (?) trouble. It is high
time that this painful example of a
disappointment of nature, who Infests
the camp, had his foolishness fixed.
All tho Eagle can iio under the cir-
cumstuuees is to regard him with tbo
samo pat hello indulgence Indians
grant an idiot. It isn't necessary to
see a skunk lo tell tbat it is around,

ments it Is quite , iscernable tbat tho
company have called for a new deck,
and : o matt ir ivho gets the deal it will
mean a black-jack for Ferguson. The
Eagle predicts thut 200 men will be
engaged by the n ".v company by tiie
timo the ore shipping season sets in
again, if the Nettie L. people man-
aged to mako ends meet when tbey hud
to dopend upon their own resources,
surely with money to back them tbey

of paying dividends oro this timo next
yoar. It matters nob what is t-equirod
to profitably mine 11- treat their ores the
new owners are in a position to supply
it. However of this tho EAGLE will
have more to sn.\ after Iho general
meeting. In the meantime developments will bo watched with Interest.
A. 11. Iloldiijh. assayer and secretary
for both tho Nettio L. and Double
Eagle companies, arrived in Ferguson
on Tuesday, and their office elfects are
now on tho way in from Rovelstoke,

"Tl
II RAILWAY'S COMING"
The Contractors Aro Pushing tho
Work With All Possible
Speed.
Lardeaultes will soon know whether
tho advont of the railway, us far ns tho
foot of the Trout lake, is going to bring
pooplo in to seo and size up our inducements to investors or not. Tho Nelson
Miner has this to say:
Mayor G. A. Carlson of Kaslo, was
in tho city yesterday in connection with
tho purchaso of supplies and tho employment of men to work on his contract ou Iho Lardo railway. Mr. Carlson bus 1150 men n w ut work and ex
pects to increase this force to 1,000 men
within a few weeks. Tho work at
present consists of clearing tho right-
of-way, cutting, filling, grading and
bridging. His contract extends over
"0 miles of country easy to build, the
grades being very light and tbo rock
work nol, so heavy us usually on-
countered in building railroads in
mountainous countries, The engineers
havo laid out tlie line in a very ingenious manner, taking full advantage of
every natural facility that tho contour
of tho district provides. In this way
tho work has been made light.
Mr. Carlson is in immediate need of
a large number of men, being able lo
put four or live hundred to work. Ho
will give employment to any good
laborers who report at his headquarters at Howser. He leaves for tho
north this morning.
WORK ON SILVERTir CHEEK.
Geo. Lux, with a party of three, left
the Landing yesterday to commence
assessment work on tho Little Maggie,
Last Chance, Flathead and Little
Allright properties, located on Silver
Tip creek. Mr. Lux says they have
somo good showings over there und he
intends to blow a few holes into them
this season, and thus further demonstrate their value ono way or the
other.
July 4th, and all the furnaces and
stoves in town, are going full bias..
Cold rains bave been falliug since
Monday, night and day.
A MY OR
So Says the  Government Which
iSpenclft Our Money, and Thou.

During a telephone conversation with
the Eagle lust night Thos. Taylor, M,
L. A.j Bald Unit ii new foreman i ith a
gang of $2.;"0 a, day men, wot Id uo
placed to work on the Nettio L. road
tbte week. And work will also be coin-
menced on the pack trails in a J . oi
two, or as soon as it lots up raining.
Mr. Taylor admits that 83 a day should
bo paid the men: hut the government
ii-: : ilitjhly Bupporta cannot see i', thi ;
way -excerpt at clei I Eon time, Mr,
Taylor has not tried to get his government to let tbe work hy contract,
licvingit would delay matters tooi iu '..
Mr. Pool merely offered $1,000 if the
government granted ir-.i'OO, with no
provisions as to whether tho work was
to bo done by contract or day labor,
Mr. Taylor says 83 a day is not the going scale, af, Trout Lake anyway, as
Mr. Clink only pays$2.25. Mr. Taylor,
so far as the Eaole knows, has never
dreamed of jarring loose from a nest of
incapable legislators, though poi'sonally
his views may differ from them. This
rididg wnnts a representative with an
ounce or twoof baok-bone, and thc man
\vh��) will remain on Iho Hide of agovern-
ment whoso action he knows to bo
wrong���just foi1 tbe sake of holdlnp
olliee���is indeed iu a pitiable plight.
There will not bo enough of lhe presenl
government supporl n*s returned at the
noxl election to hold an inquest; unless
the interior members get in and do
some dictating, rather than being led
around like so many $12 mules.
If Lardeauites are a part <��� f the people and the people are themselves, and
Thos. Taylor is a representative of that
portion of tho people, haven't these
pooplo a say as to where or how their
money will be spent? What does Mr.
Kilieen know about our needs? Or
what does thesoldouvswifts at Victoria
know about what should constitute a
fair wage in thiscamp on public works?
Mr. Taylor had better wire Victoria
that thero is another scarcity of men.
It worked the miracle last year, but���
oh no; not any this timo. But as a
matter of cold fact Mi'. Taylor seems
to think that $2.50 a day, (with less than
100 outside Working days in tho yoar) is
enough, and believing in tho rotten
system of supply and demand, rather
than justice, it Is easy to understand
his position in the matter. Tommy,
it's all off with you.
Mr. Taylor also said lastcveniiuT; that,
he did not kuow which side of Pish
oreek the wagon road would bo built
upon; and Mr. Killeen's whereabouts
wero uuknowu to him.

of that jovial spirit which made the
day such a success. Everything
passed off smothly and tho best ol

As soon as the shooting contest was

It is a principle of the British
constitution that lhe ultimate possession of the lain! and everything on
it anil in it is vested in the crown.
i Weil the crown nowadays means
: lhe government nnd the government
means lhe people. And put in this
way this ancient and fundamental
principle of what, lawyers call "eminent domain" resolves itself into
pure socialism.   -Revelstoke Herald.
The C. P. R. are up against it.
They had better settle and save life
and property, caused by criminal
stubbornness on Iheir part.

CO-OPERATIONAND
INDIVIDUALISM
It's all very well (or the Revel
stoke Herald to talk of the need of
individual effort in a mining camp.
The Eagle will admit that several
brands of efforts are necessary ; but
just how co-operation, socialism,
conflicts with individual effort is
more than we can comprehend.
What would Pierpont Morgan do if
he owned the same interests in the
Lardeau as does the government���
the people? Would prospectors not
be remunerated for the discovery of
good prospects. Would he not
have provided transportation here
years and years ago? Would he
not have a smelter in operation?
Would he not buy ore from any
and everybody who brought it lo his
smelter? Would he not reach out
to lhe outer portions of lhe district
and go on increasing his business?
And judging by what co-operation
has done for Mr. Morgan would he
There is more than one reason
why the Intercolonial railway should
be no criterion by which to judge
the success of government ownership. Here is one reason why it
has an uphill road: "The C. P. R.
has declined to accept freight originating- at Montreal and destined for
points on the Intercolonial railway
line." The people of Canada had
better start in buying up C. I\ R.
stock at once. Canada should own
the whole works. The dividends
would then go into the people's
treasury instead of to foreign private capitalists who even refuse lo
pay a living wage to tho men who
maintain their system. Wc could
also make a better dicker wilh ourselves for mail-carrying purposes
than is the case at present.

Big Bend and Canoe river
For a half century socialists have
pointed out the inevitable evolution
of the competitive system toward
monopoly. Libraries have been
ransacked and industrial facts collected from every corner of the
world to prove the criminal wastefulness and brutality of thecompetitve
struggle. The main effort was directed toward the demonstration of
the desirability and possibil ty of
concentrated industry. To-day this
stage is behind us. Evolution, ever
jealous of waste, is abolishing competition as the dominant force in into the dustry, and replacing it with moii-
untry,  opoly,   and already  the process is
Doesn't it seem rather strange
that the government of Canada
cannot build and operate a smelter,
refinery and mint? The only
solution of the present muddled
problem is for the people to co-operate and run their own show. No
trust could buck the people's trust.
The Le Roi No. 2 mine at Rossland has paid a dividend ot S144,-
000. It's so long since the old
country owned mines of Rossland
have done anything in this line that
naturally thenewspnpersare wondering what's on. Probably getting
ready for some more stock exchange
manipulation.
"The wans lhat wish to roide
safely should walk," says an Irish
Jerry. It is becoming positively
dangerous to travel over the C. P.
R. itt present, '.'ot only are trains
cancelled or delayed, but who knows
the minute a wreck will result in loss
of life. The C. P. R. will be heavy
losers if they l\o not settle very
soon wilh their striking maintenance men. The mountain sections
aro dangerous enough at any time,
but combined wilh wet weather and
no section or bridge men at work,
fatal need cone as no surprise. The matter of paying men a
living wage is not the only question
at issue at this acule stage of the
game.

wouldn't he be likely to build a railway and open ii up properly?    Do
you   think  he   would   bonus   scire
other fellow to build it for him, and
then be  dictated to  by tlie  builder?
And  so we might go   on  asking
questions; but we'll  end  with   this
one.    Would   any    sane   business
m in,  who  wanted  to   make  ends
meet,  conduct  the affairs  of   this
province as they are at present if he
privately owned the same interests
as lhe government?    He certainly
would not.    The great trusts of the
day o.re teaching us many lessons as
to what co-operation will do.    And
the "people's trust" should and soon
will be operated on exactly the same
principle as a private  trust, except
that the dividends go back   to   the
people;  and  with  this  self-created
revenue we can  build, re-build  and
improve  lhe   natural   resources   of
this God-given  country.    Wc can
then  cross  this  continent   on  our
own railway for $5 or less; there will
be absolutely free educational facilities; we will donate our own libraries; and further beautify our noted
parks and summer resorts, as well
as placing any point in Canada within reach ol everyone.    In short, the
people would do just exactly as Pierpont .Morgan would do if he owned
Canada.    And that same individual
spirit of progressiveness within each
man's  bosom  would   be   lifled far
above Ihe trials and worries of the
damnable competitive system.    Production would then be for consump-
well on toward completion, But instability of the monopoly stage is
granted from ihe beginning, and the
feeling is everywhere gaining ground
that it will be succeeded by some
form of co-operation, and current
events go to prove lhat it will take
place very soon.
"Capital will not continue to flow
to a country that returns it nothing.
That there is mineral in British
Columbia cannot, be disputed; and
it cannot well be said that the
country is lacking in other natural
resources. But, somehow, the dividends earned by the mining and industrial companies, whose head
offices are in the old country, are
not so large in the aggregate as to
be enticing to capitalists. This is
lhe reason why capital is shy of
coming here, and all lhe yarns told
about capital being scared away
from lhe province by bad laws and
labor troubles are mere moonshine,"
says lhe Tribune.. And the reason
why the dividends are not satisfactory, continues the Inland Sentinel,
is in the main to be found in the
mismanagement of a laVge proportion of those enterprises possessing
some merit, and in the gullibility of
the investor in subscribing to wildcat companies possessing no merit
at all. Some amelioration of these
untoward conditions might have
been looked for as a result of the
placing of the agent-general's office
on a basis more in keeping with the
tion, and modern machinery has sol opportunities and resources of the

every other establishment and, producing nothing that he can consume,
affords t!i; besl home market for thc
products of others.    The amount ol
his  purchases   depends   upon   the
amount  of   mineral   development.
His work sets in motion and sustains a legion of other industries,
all operating to the common good.
As a promoter of railroad traffic, as
a creator of new enterprises, as a
customer for manufacturers of  all
kinds,  tho miner is the  best purchaser,  vivifying a  wide  circle  of
activities,    It has  been  calculated
that each underground miner affords
employment   for   ten   men   above
ground, thus putting in motion industrial waves   on  which  ride   to
profit the merchant, manufacturer,
farmer and railroad man.    He asks
for little, but sell-interest suggests
to every man in every capacity that
anything that aids the mining industry aids his own business.    The
value of the miners' patronage is
manifest. Whatever helps the miner
helps all; whatever represses   the
mining industry injures to that extent the welfare of the nation.    The
miner needs no subsidies, concessions  or  anti-trust  legislation;  he
does need, however, to have his importance more generally recognized.
Were it not for the miner one-half
of this entire nation would still be
wilderness, and the other half filled
wilh  people preying upon one another in the struggle- for existence.
The miner has created the greatest
home  market  in  the world and is
thus the foremost factor in all commercial  development.     When   the
miner has money to spend, everybody in his vicinity  is  prosperous.
\nd the truth of these patent-facts
shonld.be recognized  in the legislature of every min.ng state and territory.���Western Mining World.

Nothing spreads an kloa so rapidly ns

Experience is proving- that trades-

happens that thero are 2,050 railroad

instead of five it is threo and instead
