iVILL THE GOVERNMENT ACT?
Solution of a Serious Problem Af-
footlng B. O. Silver-Lead Damps
Idea in Their Hands.
HON. Ii, McllluDK ON THELAKDEA
Tho agitation for tho establlslimont
of stneltors and it refinery by the pro-1
vincinl government la growing. Not
only is the daily nross taking the mat-
tor up, but interior representatives are ,
becoming imbued with the advisability j
and feasibility of the projoct. The;
Province says editorially: "One crying
need in this provinco has boen a lack
of smelting facilities and an utter absence of a refinery, and it is felt in
many quarters that the time has arrived for the establishment of a provincial smelter and refinery which could
treat ores at a nominal profit. The
undertaking is by no moans an enormous one. A smelter and refinery
could bo established for about $750,000,
this nt 21 por cent, would cost the province say $25,000 a year. The charge
for smelting and rotining should bo tbe
actual cost plus some small charge���Bay
50 cents���per ton, to cover interest and
provide a sinking fund for the retirement of tho $8511,000 bonds. The effect
that the establishment of such an institution would have would be most
marked. As soon as it became known
by mining men that thoy could get
their ores treated on a small margin
over cost, tho number of prospectors to
start out would be increased by thousands. The returns from mining licenses would Increase and those for registering claims would follow suit. It is
not becoming too sanguine to. figure
that the concern would be on an actual
paying basis inside of a yoar. The
possibility of sending in 5 or 10 ton lots
of ore would appeal to prospectors as
nothing else would, it is safe to
say that tho coast alone could
soon furnish enough ore to koop a f
ton smelter and roflnery lunningthe
year round. The Province firmly believes that this is a matter worthy of
the closest examlnation by tho provln
clal authorities."
Hon. McBride, minister of mines,
spont yesterday in Revelstoke on bis return from tbe south, says tho
Mall. Ho thinks highly of tho Lardeau and says he found the roads and
trails in excellent condition. Tho active
development of the district, however,
results in constant demands for new
trails which rather tax the resources of
tne government. Mr. McBrido ex-
presses astiinisliinont, at tbe amount of
work which T. Taylor, M.P.P., is milled on to perform as representative of
the district, and speaks highly of the
way in which Mr. Taylor has pressed
upon tbe government tho requirements
af the various sections of his constituency. Mr. Taylor returned with Mr.
McBride as far as Thomsons Lauding.
WORK ON TRIUNE FRACTION'.
S. Shannon's services have boon secured to look aftor development work
on tho Triuno Fraction, at tho head of
Brown creek. Two men and a puck
train of supplies went up on Monday.
A good lead has been found which
gives promise of developing into an ore
producer. At auy rate labor, &tee! and
powder are tlio only requisites for finding out theso things, and these aro being employed.
NEWS FROM Tf GATEWAY
THE BIG COLD LEDGE TAPPED
An Important and Momentous Stage
Passed and All Concerned
Will Play In Luck.
Foreman B, Crilly returned with supplies to the Ophir-Lade properties on
Tuesday. W. B. Pool came clown from
the group on Monday. The ledge has
been tapped ut 135 feet and sure enough
the contents are iini '���egnnted with pure
gold specks readily visible to the nuked
eye. Four additional men liavo beon
added to the crew, and thoy will now
raise to tho surface and drift on the
lead. This Important development in
the Opliir-Liido means much for tlio
district and tho town of Ferguson in
particular. Tho syndicate havo some
30 tons t.f ore stacked up already und
the property will bo worked all winter.
Tlio fortunate owners; too, will soon be
enjoying a big slice of tlio $100,000

A professional man from the East,
whoso golden drenms have not been

tlio Lardoau last week, suys a Nelson
correspondent of the Ledge. He tolls
a hard story of tlio methods employed
in dealing with tbo workmen who are

Intimation that they can got work

niOI.I.O   SYSTEM   HEING PERFECTED.
10. L. Kinman was ln town on Monday in the interests of the telephone
system. Ho reports the line now completed to Camborno, only awaiting a
switch-board at tho Landing to be in
perfect working order. New instruments uro to bo put in at Forguson and
and Trout Lake, Tho non-conducting
sweat-boxes are here and will be in
uso in a low days. The system throughout Is reliable and only for forest fires
no breaks would occur in tho wires,
which are, however, always attendod
to at onoo. Mr. Kinman says that the
line is noiV on a paying basis, for the
lirst since its inception. This is en-
pournging to tlio company and shows
the growing importance of thp district
generally,
Thomson's Landing, Sept. 3.���
Thero isn't very much to record hore
for tho past week. The contract for
tho building of tbo road from here to
Camborno has been awarded, except
tho last mile, which will likely bo let
by private tender. Malcom Beaton secured tho first three miles, and E. L.
Kinman the fourth milo. Work is to
be commenced at once, and Engineer
Gamble will be hero in a day or two to
close the contracts. I understand that
tho work Is to bo completed by October
15th.
lt Is quite evident that an oxtension
has been granted on the Eva group to
the London &, B. C. people, for they
are currying. work on with a vim, and
hopo to reach a point below tbo big
surface showing very soon. There
seems to bo no reasonable doubt but
what tbe bund will bo taken up this
fall. Upon tbe rosult largely depends
the immediate future of Camborne as u
town.
M. M, Bucbannan of Camborne, wns
arraigned this week before B. E. Drew,
J. P., for demonstrating his lighting
proclivities upon Malcolm Lundin, for
whioh ho was assessed $15 and costs.
A counter charge against Lundin resulted in more costs for the plaintiff,
Mr. Bucbannun, amounting In ail to
$34.55 for tho foronoon's amusement.
Another fracas also occurred, but as
tho smaller man got thu best of It,
mum is the word. It's in the water���or
the neod of it.
Mr. Starkey has loft for the coast.
Frank Fullmer lias left for Nelson to
arrange with his co-owners for commencing work on the Beatrioe mine.
This will moan nnolher oro shipper
before Christmas. Tlio oro is likely to
bo brought down to thu Landing,
though the supplies may be takon ln
from Forguson via tho new Coat crock
trull, though the cutting off ot $200 ol
tlio $(150 appropriation for this work
will probably not permit his so doing.
Dr. Geo. L. Huntington of St. Paul,
Minn., and Professor W. .1. Johnson of
MoAlister College, St. Paul, Minn., arrived in tho pay roll center on Saturday evening. Thoy visited tbo Metropolitan group and are vory much interested with what they saw. Nearly five
tons of high-grade ore lias been sacked,
a part of which Is now in Ferguson.
Tlie force hits been increased, and the

Duncan to their properties for which

Old Gold and Primrose are now pushing

hotter transportation facilities and the
depressed condition of tho silver-load
market no extensive shipments will be
made this season. Next year, however, Mr. Miller looks for a big change
in tho situation generally. lie behoves
that not only will the railway bo completed to Ferguson, but the provincial
government, or private parties, will by
that timo have mustered the smelting-,
refining and marketing problem, and
wo will be placed quite independent ot
tho big American lead trust. Eacli

but this season certainly shows tho
Lardeau district up in a most favorably

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER   5, 1901,
PRESENT CONDITIONS MUST BE MET
The B. C. Trade Budget, a trade
journal   published   in    Vancouver,
fears that if the provincial government were to establish and operate
smelters and a refinery it   would
mean the initial step towards what
it is pleased lo term a socialistic
form of government.    And oh dear
what a calamity that would be���
stnong   the    "vested   rights"   old
women.    The Budget says:    "The
Lardkau Eagle,  amongst others,
call on the provincial government to
build smelters and a refinery. Thee
are a few  socialists in this province
who say they believe that the gov
ernment should assume control of
all means of production and distribution.    The idea is beautiful, but
until grafters and soft cushion office
seekers are all dead we wish to keep
up   the   competitive   system   with
slight alterations and repairs. Granted that the provincial   government
accedes to this cry for smelters and
refineries, so as the Eagle says, thot
the producer be not dealt with in a
way that leads 'o  ihe bankruptcy
court, we  may add  'bat  fishermen
would   not  ohjeel    tn  governmei t
canneries, nnd  tl     loggers  ot the
const anticipate  t   a or three saw
mills  who "ill  but  their  logs and
guarantee them a good profit,    And
what about iron and steel plants in
East Kootenay and on  the  coast.
And  the poor fanner  wants  more
for his milk���government creameries are wanted.    After these are established we may be able to mention   a   few   more.    Prosperity is
greatly desired, but it is not alwayi
wise to rob Peter to pay Paul.    W<
would like to sec the province augmenting the bonus the   Dominion
government has promised for refined
lead, either by a reduction of 50 per
cent', in the tax on ore smelted and
refined in  the   province,  or some
other suitable manner.    We want
refineries  and must get them, even
if we double the fluty on imported
lead  products."    lf advocating the
fulfilment of the program  outlined
by thc Budget means that the Kaglf
editor is a socialist, wc are quite
willing to resume the responsiblity,
With regard to lhe weeding out 0.
the   grafter   element    wc   concur,
lint supposing the people did undertake to enter the businesses  mentioned above.    It might upset the
plans of a few old foggies and pro
tect the vested rights of the people
but the people could well afford to
stand for it. The Dominion government did  for the  Northwest  dairy
business what the  Eagle believes
the provincial  government can do
for the silver-lead  industry of this
province.    According to the Budget
we should  wait until Uncle Sam's
trusts take us to their bosom or a
few private  men do  precisely what
the government will eventually have
. to  do, secure  control of the industries mentioned.    When the subject
is thoroughly  investigated   we are
Inclined   to   think   that it wil Ibe
found that the men who have united
their capital together are in one
sense socialists or believers in public
ownership. They are men wbo having, a great amount of money study
closely the "signs of the times"
and, therefore, bave taken "tin
signs" by tlie forelockiand put socialism to work in a small scale on
a selfish basis. They saw that the
people ��� the government ��� should
own everything and work all lines
of trade and commerce together as
one so that there would be no friction or opposition to mar the profits
accruing; thus a few of the wealthy
combined and started social ownership for their own benefit and protection. Already Ibey have accomplished a great ileal in this direction
and have proved beyond doubt that
unity is strength. The day is fast
approaching when public ownership
will be demanded, ns the casual ob
server sees. It will,take some time
to accomplish bur*1 if Canadians
would keep the trusts and combines
from running the affairs of the Dominion they must devise the means
whereby they can control the industries of our country. Government
ownership of railways, smelters, refineries, in fact everything which
goes to make up the important factors of a people, is the only sure
way that the masses will derive
their share of the wealth of this
great country.

tend their railway to Ferguson

It is impossible not to be painfully struck by the enormous proportion of the gross output ol our
silver-lead mines which are absorbed
in the freight and treatment charges
on the ore.    A reference to the annual report of the North Star mine,
will show that over 50 per cent, of
the value of its ore Was expended
upon freight and treatment, says the
B. C. Mining Record.    In the case
of the St. Eugene mine, while the
proposition may   not be quite so
;reat,  the concentrates of the St.
Eugene being of higher grade than
'he crude, clean ore of the  North
Star, the aggregate amount so paid
out is also startlingly large.   When
lhe low  price of silver, the decline
in lead, and the fact that the United
States no longer needs British Columbia ores, and that contracts are
now based on the London market
price are considered, it is quite clear
that silver-lead mines in British Columbia must either be exceptionally
rich or exceptionally easy to work,
to remain profitable under present
conditions at all.    Anotheraspect of
the question is, that until the smelting and refining of silver and lead
are an established industry in the
province, these vast charges are nn
ibsolute dead loss to the country.
They go to maintain industry and
support population  in  the  United
States.    Therefore,  even if  those
charges could not be reduced by the
establishment of home smelting and
refining, the province would still be
benefitted by these industries to a
very considerable degree.    But it is
a little difficult to understand how,
in a country rich in fuel, iron and
lime, a saving could not be affected
in   the   expense   now incurred in
transporting  barren  materials  like
sulphur and silica to such places as
San  Francisco and Antwerp,    So
that not merely would the establishment of smelting and refining enrich tha country with an important
ndustry, but it would also confer a
benefit on the owners ol our mines,
and enable us to compete on something more like equal terms in the
production of silver and of  lead
With or without a bonus, so much
the better with it, it is  only a question of a very short time until the
situation  in  which our silver-lead
mines find themselves, will lead to
the formation of an  important producing market in these metals entirely   independent of the   United
States; and until their present em-
harassing circumstances,  although
they have given rise to great temporary   inconvenience,   will  lay   the
foundation of permanent benefit to
the industry of the province.
The editor of the Lardeau Eagle
may be a "malicious slanderer," "a
dirty cur," or an tWt and out	
 , according   to   the
cuspidor dreg who edits the C. P.
R. department of the Nelson Tribune, but that does not alter the
undenied fact that the maintenance-
of-way strikers won their victory
without the aid of the Tribune,
which always managed to give scare-
head space to colored C. P. R. reports, and never spoke one word of
encouragement in favor of men who
only asked for a mere living wage,
The Nelson Tribune is the best daily
paper in the province to-day, and
has always been on the side of right
in no uncertain tone; but no excuse
has yet been given for its attitude
against the recent striking C. P. R.
men.

papers as the Rossland Miner claim
them to be it's a wonder they an
not changed, since the majority rule.
The laws of New Zealand have
been in force, with a few alterations
for the better, for the past eleven
years, and if they were objectionable
to the majority would have been
changed ere this. The masses have
simply exercised their power in New
Zealand, and naturally the greedy
"survival of the fittest" element feel
sore. But for all, no fair-minded
man can deny that with the laws of
New Zealand and the resources of
British Columbia this would be the
"poor man's paradise" in word and
in deed.

The C. P. R. maintenance-of-way
strikers have won recognition from
the company, and compromise
terms are agreed upon. A telegran
to some of the bridgemen here call-
them back to resume work at once.
The Rossland strike is in a fair way
to settlement, but the big strike-
across the line are likely to lead to
a revolution before a settlement is
reached.
There will be nearly as many mer
employed in the district this winter
as heretofore employed in the summer season, but there are plenty ol
men on deck. The number ol
properties which will work the year
round hereafter marks a new era
in the progress of the Lardeau.

Tho product of the mines of British

Twelve per cent, of tho people of

FERGUSON
Is the Coining Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
B B C A U S B
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 Nettie L. Double
Eagle, Ophir-Lade, Silver Cup,
Triune, Metropolitan, Sunset,
Lone Star, Comstock and other
properties will operate the year-
round hereafter, and this winter
will see probably 400 men at
work, over 200 of which will be
engaged on the properties of
the first three named.
Because the shipping mines arc
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
thc Great Northern hill just
rfbrth 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 are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
w
H
Because this is the point where
mining men coming into thc dis- |
trict make their headquarters; as
1 hey can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because ever)' pound of ore from
these mines coming down the
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here il will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance c( four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are ii
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
But why give other reasons:    We have ihe mines, thc pay roil, the natural gco=
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc., and thc right kind of people to make  ||
I a town.   The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do the j$
rest.   Come and see for yourself.
