Tba rawhiders have quit bringing
down ore from the Nettle L. Trull sure
in such condition that rawhldlng Is Impossible. It the ore keeps coming out
���f tbe mine during the summer development the nay lt has been lately tbere
will be a large quantity on hand to sblp
when rawhiding starts next season.
We expect that next year tho Nettle
L. will break all Lardoau records as an
ere shipper. They have at least 200
feet of sloping ground tbat has not
been touched snd whon we consider
that tbey have taken all their previous
shipments out of a comparatively small
space and that the sbeit has proven itself even bigger and better with depth,
a man don't bare to be a mining expert
to see where the big shipment Is going
to come from. It Is expected that the
fine surface showing of ore uncovered
on the Ajax last summer will be
actively developed this year. Wo expect big things from tbat .bowing, In
fact there is no reason why it should,
net turn out fully as well ��s the Net
lleL.
Ruwhlding la still in progress from
tbe Silver Cup. There bas been since
tbe present owners secured the mine
a new and unexpected oro body found
which puts as much ore in sight in this
nine as tbere was when the Horn-
Payne people starteo to stope last full.
This means lhat without doing any development work that the present owners can practically take out the price
paid for this mine and have the mine as
a gift. With big shipments in sight
from tho Nettle L.; Ajax, Silver Cup,
Triune and other properties which will
���hip smaller quantities, this camp
should produce as much as any camp
in tbe Slocan. We may not ship the
quantities, but the values will be tbere
just tbe same. So get in and dust on
your prospects boys,-your time of waiting is over and people will come along
here only too anxious to invest Id a
camp tbat can show such results.
Business also promises to be brisk
here this summer. The electric light
plant is on tbe ground and will be insulted early io the season. The lumber Is ordered for tbe hospital. A new
school house Is in sight, Some new
business firms are coming ln. Our
tailor has got started to work. Tbere
are lots of new buildings being planned
for the coniiug summer, so we would
advise all wbo would like a picture of
Ferguson as a pioneer town to get out
their cameras for (elide of three
months wo are liable to have grown into
a fair sited city.

Below will be found an article clipped
Irom the Mining Reporter which Is
reproduced here to show our readers
tbe notice we are getting from outside
points,
Two very important mining deals
have just been consummated In the
Lardeau. Tha Silver Cup mine, owned
and heretofore operated by tbe Horn-
Payne outfit, bas been purchased by
Vf. B. Pool and J.J.Young for $��00,000
cash. The Silver Cup Is the richest
mine of its kind in tbo province, and
now bas 800 tons silver-lead ore mined
and ready for shipment valued at *U16,-
000; this is the product of the mine
since November, no shipments having
been made during the winter. The
other deal, the bonding of the Triune
by C. W. McCrossan, which, while it
does not involve so large an amount of
money, Is of more importance to the
mining Industry of the Lardeau, inasmuch as Mr. McCrossan is the manager
.of tbe Lardeau Smelting and Refining
company, which has already installed
aVulojtn smelter at Ferguson; the acquisition of the Triune by Mr, Mc-
Groseiufcwill give his smelting company
an adequate supply of high grade ore
for the continual operation of tbe smelter. If the furnace proves a success
on the Triune ore its capacity will undoubtedly be enlarged to treat tbe ores
from othor Lardoau properties. The
greatest item of expense heretofore in
the operation of the Lardeau mines has
been the excessive and, with some
properties, prohibitive freight rates
charged for transportation. Tbe sue*
cessful operation of a smelter In tbe
immediate vicinity of tbe mines will
not only enable the mines now operating to pay much larger profits, but will
make lt possible for other niiues to
work which are now closed down because of the need uf cheap transportation,
Tbe Nettie L. mine haa 200 tons of
ore ready for shipment valued at $125
per ton, or $30,200.

The Canadian Pacific Railway Co
expect to bave the new line to the foot

Mr. Sullivan is removing his office and
family to Winnipeg where he will make
his headquarters in future,
An interesting feature in connection
with the construction of the Lardeau
branch is that it forms another link ln
a system that is an ideal of the engineering department���an ocean to ocean
route on which the grades will not exceed one per cent. This Is attainable
by directing traffic south In the Territories and using a section of the Crow's
Nest road and other sections yet un-
eonstrueted. Such a route would give
tbe Canadian Pacific a great advantage
over other transcontinental lines, al*

New Hand Brill fur Ulnar..
W. W. Waite of Colfax bas patented
a new band drill which he bas on exhibition at Spokane. Mr. Waite patented his drill about a year ago and let a
contract for their manufacture to tbe
Jeffery Manufacturing oompany of Columbia, Ohio, but owing to the strikes
throughout tho east be was unable to
get tbem on tbe market last fall as ex*
pected. The first carload will arrive
in Spokane about May 1.
The drill is unique in many respects.
It consists of four four-pound hammers
On steel handles about 16 inches in
length, attached to a balance wheel
which turns by a craak. At every
revolution of the wheel there are four
strokes of the hammers, thus making
It possible to strike 210 blows a minute
with little exertion. Tbe weight of,
this drill is about ISO pounds, wblch Is
an important fact to be considered
where transportation is difficult. It Is
claimed that it will do the work of
from fonr to six men, according to tbe
quality of the rock. The simplicity of
its workings can perhaps be more
roadily understood wben it is stated
that at every stroke of the hammers
the drill is turned and beldautomically
for the next stroke, It bas exactly the
same movement as a miner makes
when swinging a hammer, witb tbe exception of doing away with tha return
motion, whicli ordinarily consumes
about 80 per cent, of a man's energy,

subscriber:
"Is there any property known as the
Rob Roy and Highland Chief? Is the
proposition of any value as a mining
claim?" Thc Rob Roy and Highland
Chief are among tbe well known claims
in this district. They are situated up
the north fork of tho Lardeau, a, short
distance from Circle City and are with

considerable money In intelligent
development work, As regards tipe
value of the proposition tt an investment, we don't fool qualified to answer
such questions as they need the advice
of a mining expert, and suob we don't
profess to be.
The Northwestern Development Syndicate group of olaims Id the celebrated
Lardoau district of British Columbia

necessary stamp mills and mining machinery to push the work.
"The district is Immensely rioh In
high-grade gold oro," said Mr. Brock
at the Butler, "and will undoubtedly
lead ln tho production of gold among
the big camps of British Columbia.
Tbe claims on which I will Immediately

THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 191*2.
The editor ot the Eagle is in re-
. eipt of a private letter from a well
known professional man in Vancouver. The gentleman in question is
interested in Lardeau mining property and we feel confident that he
will not object to us publishing an
extract from  the letter.    He says:
"I am anxious tolearn what there
is in the Ferguson smelter scheme,
as we get most conflicting reports.
First we hear the thing is a mere
experiment and has been built in a
formation of frozen boulders and
mud and must inevitably fall when
it thaws out, and that in any cose it
will not work. Again we hear that
it is a bona fide scheme and that
ihis type of smelter has been tested
and that the same company will
build another one at Trout Lake.
There seems to be an influence doing its best to decry the country,
and to convey the impression that
all reported progress is mere paper
;alk and that no development worth
mentioning has really taken place."
So far as the foundation of the
��� mclter is concerned, we hasten to
assure flic public that it is alright.
It is founded upon a rock. It uas
necessary to do donsiderablc blasting in order to get the foundat on
lev:! and '.','���*; know that fifty thaws
can never affect it. So far as its
working is concerned we don't pro-
less to know anything about it, only
as we can cull information from i ur
exchanges. In the Eagle of March
13th wiil he found an article clipped
irom the Pacific Coast Miner d.al-
ing with the Vulcan smelter Irom
the standpoint of a smeller expert.
We were responsible for this paper
that week and carefully read the
article before reproducing it in these
columns and we must say wc think
hat the article seems to fully establish the lact that the Vulcan smelter
schj-me is quite feasible. We can't
understand why people should he so
anxious to knock a scheme that
offers such wonderful help to the
mining industry. Tlie Vulcan people will have enough to do to combat the smeller trusts and the railway interests without the small
operators trying to throw cold waler
on their efforts. .
Mr. McCrossan came into Fergu
son and built his smelter without
asking a cent of oiir money to help
him. He paid every man wlio
worked for him all that was due
them and we are glad to say that
he paid the recogized wages of this
camp without a murmer. We have
not heard of a merchant who
is complaining of not getting paid
for the supplies he purchased, therefore where is our kick, We think
that Mr, McCrossan is the right
kind nf a man (or this country. He
undoubtedly hss money behind him
and is willing to get in nnd take a
chance. II the Vulcan smelter is
not a success we shall soon know it
without any assistance from our
local pessimists and we shall find
ourselves no worse off than we were
before it was built, but if on the
other'hand it. proves the success
.-. gopJ many of us expect it lo be,

Smith Curtis is getting well
abused by a certain section of the

The greatness of his efforts can be
measured by the amount of the
abuse.
