The Late G. H. Bayne
Died Friday as a Result of Wounds Inflicted by a Bear.
Death brought relief from suffering
to the lato George H. Bayne at the
Lat-deau Miners' Union hospital on
Friday last at 4:50 p. m.
After the terrible experience at the
mercy of a huge female silver-tip bear
above Ferguson on July 27th, and the
subsequent long ride, the patient sufferer bore up remarkably well, but the
iron nerve and strong constitution of
the man, together with the best treatment that surgical skill could devise,
were unable to cope with the Internal
injuries. After Xfcl Newcombe had
dressed the wounds the patient rallied,
and seemed to be making progress toward recovery, but the improvement
was only temporary and on Sunday it
was noticed tbat tho patient became
drowsy.
As Mr. Kennedy was tho only person
closely connected with deceased, he
was summoned to the bedside.
1 Mr. Bayne's people in Halifax in the
meantime were kept oloSoly'in touch
with the condition of |he; patient by
wire, and his brother, Mr Andrew
Bayne, was at the time on his way to
Ferguson.
This drowsiness , CpiiJJnued, gradually deepening into stupor, and
later into a comatose condition which
was manifest on Thursday, August
8th. Up to this time the patient had
made no complaint whatever, but now
he began to moan and show symptoms
of acute pain, especially when disturbed.
Chas. H. Bayne of Halifax, a brother
of deceased, upon being informed of
his brother's condition, telegraphed to
have outside assistance if necessary,
and Drs. Campbell and Kenning, Mr.
Bayne's Rossland physicians, were
communicated with at once and they
left Rossland Wednesday evening, arriving in Ferguson at 10 p. m,, Thursday.
Upon their arrival they immediately
proceeded to the hospital, whero In
consultation with Dr.Newcombe, further procedure in tho case was deferred until the dressing of the wounds
the following morning.
At 8 a. m., after dressing the wounds,
lt was decided that pressure must be
the cause of tho trouble, although
stupor and weakness wore the only Indications, and an exploratory operation
wns Immediately proceeded with, with
the result that though tho rupturod
vessel was found, tbe pressure could
not bo removed. The cause ot the
rupture was concussion from the blow
received, there being no evidence of
fracture of the skull.
Death took place at 4:50 p. m. Friday.
Mr, Bayne's brother, Andrew, aftor
receiving word in Calgary of tho critical condition of his brother, made all
possible haste to reach Ferguson, but
owing to the delay In both train and
boat, he did not arrive until 7 p. m.,
only to find that his brother had passed
away two and a half hours before his
arrival,
The late Mr. Bayne waB aged 44 years
and a native of Halifax, N. S., but of
lato ysarB has been a resident of Rossland where he waB heavily Interested
in mining, holding the poBltion of
managing director of the Homestake
mine, as well as owning several Ferguion properties, and it was in the examination ot some of these tbat tbe aooi-
dent took placo that caused his death.
My. Bayne was well known in mining
and social circles throughout the
Kootenays, and his death will be received with doep regret by all his many
friends.
Mr. Andrew Bayne had his brother's
body embalmed and he accompanied it
east for interment.
A New Oolil Strike,
Another big strike is reported on the
Pelly river, nea* its head. A steamer
left at midnight on Saturday, August
1st, with 40 people to stake claims,
carrying supplies. This follows a discovery mado by Robert Henderson,
the discoverer of the first gold 'it,
Klondike, who had been up the Pelly
some time since and took two men up
about a month ago. One man returned
and told of results, honee tho stampede,
A townsite is taken up already. The
new grounds are fairly accessible, and
are reported vory ri6h. Coal is found
In the Bame locality. Thero Is a probability Of a tremendous stampede later,
as the public takes this strike seriously.
The Wbltehorse Btrlko Ib genuino,
for miners returning all report fevor*
ably, although the grounds are not
found remarkably rich as yet.
Washing gravel Is seriously retarded for want of water, but much rich
ground has been opened during the
season.
Conditions of trade are excellent,
and general good times reign throughout the country.
Sarto Is rope.
Joseph Sarto, who by the election of
the conclave of cardinals at Rome was
made Pope Pius X, was born at Rlese,
diocese of Trevlso, in the north of
Italy, June 2, 1835, and was educated
at.the seminary of his diocese and at
the Sacra Theologia, Rome. His career haB been that of a parish priest,
spent almost wholly in the north of
Italy.
It Ib singular that Venice alone of all
important cities lh Italy has only
patriarchal rank, while many smaller
cities are seats of bishops and archbishops. Sarto was made patriarch of
Venice in 1802 and created and proclaimed cardinal Juno 12,18.13, and bas
for his titular church in Rome St. Bar-
nardo.
He was a great preacher, fairly well
known as a writer, and under him
church interests in Venice have pros*
pored. He is a member of the Congregations of Bishops and Regulars,
Sacred Rites, Indulgence and Sacred
Holies and Studies.
tyoneity Essential.
In no profession is sterling honesty
more Imperatively demanded than in
tho caso of thc mining'engineer. In
the large mining operations an aggregation of capital is necessary. The investment is made on the faith of the
mining engineer's report. 'The small
savings of the factory hand and tho
hard-earned dollar of the washer*
woman unite with the larger investment of the capitalist to make the operation possiblo. What do you think of
tho general who betrays his army?
The lawyer who sells his client, or the
doctor who poisons his patient? Hither
of them is entitled to as much respect
as is the due of a mining engineer who
deliberately certifies as true that which
he does not know to be true. The
temptation to deviate from the course
of rectitude will be great, hut happily
the reward oi fidelity will be greater
to the man worthy of his profession.���

seriously of dropping out of tho raco,
and it has also been asserted that the
Liberals in that event would not substitute.

THE ALPHA GROUP.
Directly behind the town of Forguson, and about two miles distant by a
good trail, is the Alpha group of
claims. On tho Broadview, one of the
group, a great amount of work has
beon done showing a very big vein of
copper-silver, mostly copper pyrites
and of good grade. There Is but one
reason why this valuable proporty
Bhould bave remained idle so long, and
that Is for want of better transportation. Tho location of the property is
first-class and it has overy convenience
for profitable mining as well as boing
so situated that a tram down to Ferguson would not be expensive.
There is no doubt that ore will bo
brought down to Ferguson, and either
treated here by smelting or shipped
out in bulk. It is claimed the Ferguson Vulcan smelter would work well in
this ore, that boing the kind of ore in
tho treatment ot whtcji the Vulcan
form has proven so successful in California.
The Alpha is to be sold, by tender on
the 15th inst. It is now owned by tho
Lillooet, Fraser river c': Cariboo Gold-
fields, Limited.
A -representative of tho Eagle looked ovor tho Alpha group on Sunday

A OREAT OOPPER PROPERTY.
Chnrlos A. MacKay of thia city, Is
superintending tho oponin-j up of tho
Fallot' group, ln East Kootenay, the
property ol tho Solklrk Coppor Minos,
Limited. This property, consisting of
six claims, Is sltuatod on Whitefish
creek, a branch of the St. Mary's river, 18 miles from Mnrysvllle, A wagon
road from tho lattor town comes within
eight miles of tho proporty, the rest of
the way being traversed by a trail.
The lead, which ia eight feet across,
runs along the centre of a 200-foot belt
of mineralized quartz. This belt of
low grade ore carries a total value of
several dollars to the ton throughout.
The lead averages tlfl to the ton, and
has been thoroughly tested. The development work done so far consists of
ono tunnel In 405 feet, nnd another in
85 Ieet. There is also a 60-foot shaft
and 10 open cuts from 4 to 16 feet deep.
A peculiar feature of the ore is that
numerous pockets ol native copper oc
cur In it, and whilst not of sufficient
extent to appreciably increase the values, is important ub tho only deposit of
native copper yot encountered in tho
district. The loud haB beon found to
be of tho samo size and grade of oro
throughout tho property.���Nelson

A Grievance.
Ferguson, B. C, Aug. 11,1903.
[j To the Editor ol tlie Lardeau Eagle:
I In your last issue under tho heading
jot "Cause of Labor," your report ot
| tho labor meeting was not correct in
soveral particulars. The meeting was
for tho purposo of electing delegates
to convention and was most unanimous, and there was no question of
whether a candidate would run or no,
as a previous meeting had decided that
question without any dissention. As
this was a labor meeting, a discussion
i ns to whether to run a Socialist would
be as sensible as a discussion as to
whether to run a Conservative or Lib-
oral. Your reporter also tells us that
the convention would decide about
whether or not to bring out a man. Do
nominating conventions generally decide this question'' your report either
Bhows ignorance of procedure or tho
old timo political party misrepresentation calculated to mislead, while apparently bearing a semblance of truth,
and if we are to place reliance on your
future reports please be more accurato
and fair to friend and foe aliko.

One of the Director-
in the Camp All Last
Week Examining thc
Holdings.
Mr. Richard H. Battey of Minneapolis, Minn., spent last week in and about
Ferguson, having been appointed b;
the Metropolitan Mining Company
Limited, ot which ho is a director, to
examine and report ou the property
owned and controlled by tho company.
Accompanied by Manager J. A. McCrossan, he visltod the Triune first.
Tbis property was closed for the winter but is now working, and it is expected that work will bo continued al!
next winter. Part ot the mon an*
working on development, while the remainder aro taking out ore, which is
being sent to the steamboat landing
for shipment.
Mr. Battey expressed himself to an
Eacle reporter as verv highly pleased
with the Triune, and surprised to lind
so much high grade oro in sight, tie
thinks more highly of the Triune since
having seen it.
A few days later be visited tho Metropolitan group on the North Fork uf
the Lardeau, accompanied by tho manager. Ho found there to bo a tine,
large tunnel well timbered, 7 feet wide
and 105 feet through solid rock into
the face. This tunnol cuts through
numerous fissures of high grade ore.
In ono place two came together, making 2i inches of solid ore. A large
number nf samples wore takon and
brought down to be tested, so that the
average value may bo learned. The-r-
is a drift about 50 feet in from the surfaco, from which tho ore that was
shipped was evidently takon,
Tho cabins on the property aro good
and everything is in fine shape for
working. A small force of mon was
put to work tho day the director ami
manager wero there, but further than
that it will not bo decided what other
work will bo dono this year until alter
the directors have had time to consider

FRIDAY. AUGUST 14, 1903.
NO TIME FOR POLITK.S.
Politics in most every riding in
the province except Kaslo, seems to
engage a lot of attention, there
has not been much accomplished as
yet. In Nelson there is a breach
in the Conservative party which
shows no signs of being healed.
This is a great pity, for we would
like, since party lines' are introduced, to see the parties fight out
the election on the merits of their
respective platforms. The only
riding where the campaign may be
said to have properly opened is
at Kamloops, Where F. J. Fulton
and F. J. Deane are crossing
swords,
All through the Kaslo riding the
people have something better and
more substantial to engage their
attention.
The substantial progress that is
being made in the mining industry
throughout the Lardeau outside of
the Poplar creek excitement, keeps
everybody busy, and they have little time to spend on politics at this
stage ot the game.
The find of last week on Gainer
creek shows that gold is all about
here in large quantities.
Cardinal Sarto hns been elected
Pope to succeed Leo XIII. The
new Pope takes the title of Pius X.
Though much difficulty was had in
effecting an election, great satisfaction is manifested among the Roman Catholic people of the world
over the election.
General N.lson A. Miles has been
retired from command of the United
Slates army on account of old age.
A few days before his retirement he
took a go-mile dush on horseback.
General Miles is a younger man today physically than many of hii
late subordinate officers who are 20
years junior lo-him.
Thc new giuiibl ng laws of the
state of -vV-isliiii'.'on, which make
it a felony to have any connection
with gambling games, are,far reaching and iron bound. In Spokane
open gambling is at an end and
owners of panics are either going
out of business or seeking new
fields.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Lardeau people should not
lose sight of the fact that the McBride government have given a
grant of $2,000 to the Miners
Union hospital at Ferguson and
that a grant was refused by the
previous government. The Ferguson hospital was recognized as a
most useful and necessary institution, arid it was given assistance
just as scion as the McBride government was formed. So today the
hospital is oh easy street and not
hampered for funds, therefore the
institution is enabled to give the
best of treatment to patients.
We would suggest that a hunting party be formed of ten or more
men to go up Haley creek to locate
and kill the bear that attacked the
late G. H, Bayne, causing his
death. It is not often that a bear
will attack a man, but this one certainly did attack, and after having
come off conqueror the brute will
prove a dangerous beast to be
roaming about the hills, There is
no doubt she would go after a man
on sight under almpst any circumstances, and we feel that she should
be disposed of.

CONSERVATIVE FLAfPORM.
Prospecting parties are leaving
Ferguson nearly every day to look
for free gpld leads in the vicinity of
town. There is an immense area
of ground between here and Poplar
creek that has been as yet only
walked over, and by means of a little exertion the chances are great
for finding good gold btarlng leads.
[Adopted at Kevelstoke, September 13th, 1902.
1. That this convention reaffirms tho policy
of the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails; tbe ownership and control of railways
and the development of the agricultural resources of the province as laid down ln the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and the building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt thc principles of government ownership of railwavs ln so far as the eircum-
stances of thc province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
docs not give the government of tne province
control of rates over lines bonuscd, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid ln the development of the agricultural resources ol the
province.
2. That ln the meantime and until the railway policy above set forth can be accomplished, a general railway act bo passed, giving
freedom to construct -railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted tn such extensive railway
construction In the United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
8, That to encourage the mining industry,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on a basis of a pcrcentageon the net profits
4. That thc government ownership of tele-
Shone systems should be brought about as a
rst step In the acquisition of public utilities.
5. That a portion of every coal area hereafter to be disposed of should bo reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation becomes
necessary or advisable.
6. That ln the pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
sliould be taken for thegencral preservation ot
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
tho province should persevere ln thc efforts to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms in tho
way of subsidy and appropriations for tlie
irovlueo should bo vigorously prossed upon
.he Dominion government.
9. That the sllvcMljad Industries of the
province be fostered a'nd cneouragud by the
Imposition of increased customs duties ou lead
and lead products Imported into Canada, and
that the Conservative members of the Dominion House be urged tn support auy motion Introduced for such a purpose.
10. That as Industrial disputes almost Invariably result in great loss and Injury both to
the parties directly concerned and to the public, legislation should be passed to provide
means for un amicable adjustment of such disputes between employers and employees.
11. That it is advisable to foster tne manufacture of the raw products ol tlie province
within thc provinco as far as practicable by
means of taxation on the said raw products,
subject to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured In British Columbia.
