W. B. Pool Ia Constructing a New
Water Syatom.
AMPLE PROTEi-TiON FROM FIRE
Would Take Two Hours for a Four
Inch Pipe to Drain the
Rsservoir.
LORD KITCHENER RECEIVES
AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION
The cltiiens ol Ferguson have shown
commendable enterprise in the past in
providing for themselves a supply of
fresh water from the spring, above
town and carried to the buildings by
pipes, This has worked very satisfactorily until lately when tho water has
got bad on account ol thc pipes having
.'listed. This would not bave occurred
had the fall been greater and the pipes
larger, but It was expensive getting in
piping nnd it was thought that what
was put In would answer the purpose
till such time as a proper system wan
installed. However, the time is at
hand (or the town to get tho regulur
system. Mr. Pool wanted water Id his
new dwelling and also in the Great
Western block und went about having
a private waterworks put In, but most
of the business men aud others wanted
Mr. Pool to instill a waterworks sufficiently large to supply the whole town,
as a much better service could bo obtained by having the whole thing In
one. So Mr. Pool decided to abandon
tbe private scheme and do as the people bail asked. He therefore secured
a water right at tha source of the
springs abovo ths hospital und hus had
a gang of men to work for a week.
Already u large substantial reservoir
has been built, the earth autl wash
were dug away down to bedrock and a
strong dam built. A ditch fifteen
inches deep is completed from the reservoir to Victoria avenue in which will
bo placed the main pipe. The main
will bo four inches In diameter inside
and tbe altitude ol the reservoir from
the main street Is about 250 feet and
the length of tbe muln down to town Is
betwoun 1,600 and 2,<>00 feet. It will
therefore b-_ teen that there is ample
fall to Insure a head uf water that will
throw a stream over any building In
town. This will prove of Incalculable
value in ease of lire and wu believe
that whon iho system Is complete tho
Insurance rati.1 will he lowered In Ferguson, anil there is certainly room for
a decrease. Two Inch und ono and u
hiilf Inch pipes will curry water'from
tho muln to different p trts of tho town
and Mr. Pool states thut us low a rate,
for water, us possible will be given so
tbat overy buu.se lu town may bo supplied.
Tho reservoir Is not far up the bill
from tho hospital and Is surrounded by
large fir and cedar trees, which pie-
vent, tha suu from striking down on tho
water and will make a cool place to sit
of a warm afternoon. The water is
nine Feet deep iu the deepest part and
runs out of tbe rocks only a few feet
away. It haa been figured that in case
of fire lt would take two hours to drain
the reservoir, even were tbe stream
above not continually feeding it. So
there is not much danger of the water
< running short. When the demand becomes too grot for tho supply tbere Is
anothor spring crook only a short distance away tbat ouuld easily be made a
feeder for the reservoir,
London, July 12.���Lord Kitchener ar.
rived at Paddlngton station at 12:40,
and was welcomed by the Prince nf
Wales and greeted by cheering crowds.
An address was presented to the general and he shortly after started for St.
James' Palace. He arrived at St.
James' Palace at 1:27 p. m. Tbe Prince
of Wales waB already tbere awaiting
bim.
Lord Kitchener's progress through
tbe metropolis after three years' absence at the Boer war, was one of the
most memorable of tbe many remarkable of .the past three years. From tbe
moment ho set foot In London till the
time of. bis disappearance beneath the
portal of St. James' Palace he was tbe
object of such an outburst of popular
enthusiasm as to quite overshadow the
demonstrations on previous stmiliar occasions.
Later Lord Kitchener proceeded to
Buckingham Palace as the king had
expressed a desire to see him. Lord
Kitchener was speedily conducted to
tbe king's tick chamber, and His Majesty, from bis couch, extended a warm
welcome to him, and personally expressed his thanks for the termination
of hostilities. The king then presented Lord Kitchener with tbe decoration
of the new order of merit.   The gen
eral next saw the queen, after whioh
he drove to Lord Roberts residence in
Portland Place. Lord Kitchener will
visit Mr. Chamberlain, tho colonial
secretary, Monday.
Columns of anecdotes concerning
General Kitchener and voluminous descriptions of his lire and especially his
recent campaign iu Smth Africa,
monopolize the newspapers and the
coronation arches, which wore being
torn down, aro now redecorated in hia
honor, Goneral French also comes In
for many econlums.
Beforo long, bowover, the mon wbo
ended the South African war are likely
toappearin anew role, and one less
pleasant to the popular tastes. Tho
royal commission to investigate the
conditions of the war Is being formed,
Viscount Goschon, ex-chancellor of the
ex-cbequer, and an ex-first lord of the
admlralitv, will be Its president, and
Lord Kitchener will doubtle.-s be examined at length.
Southampton, July 12.���The Pacific
Steam Navigation Co.'s steamer Org-
tava, which left Capetown on June 23,
with Lord KltcbencrandstalTon hoard,
arrived here at half past eight o'clock
this morning. Owing to the fact that
Major Gordon, who was al-o a passenger on the steamer, bad been stricken
with smallpox, Lord Kitchener and his
staff only were allowed to land. The
Orotava has been placed in quarantine.
Lord Kitchener landed at 9:15 a. m
He was accorded a welcome from a
hugei.throngof peoplo. Altera brief
official reception at tlie ducks, the
general was driven through tho deco
enrated and crowded streets to Hartly
Hall, where he was presented with an
address from tho chamber of commerce, expressing admiration of the
generalship, resource und skill which
he bad shown in South Africa, and
hoping.that the peace which he bad
secured would be lasting aud mark thu
beginning of anew epoch of prosper
Ity and commercial development
throughout the empire.
In reply, Lord Kitchener declared
that whatever success had been achieved was due to the rank and llleofthe
army. Ho .''thanked those who had
looked after the friends and relatives
uf those left.behind in South Africa.
In response to clamorous calls for
General French ai.d General Ian Hamilton, they also spoke, the former
marking that they had throughout
been inspired by the example of their
chiefs.
The freedom-of tha borough was conferred on Lnrd Kitchener, and tbe
party was then obliged to hurry away
in order to meet thoir London engagement. Tho progress of Lord Kitchener
and his companions to the railroad station was marked by scenes of remarkable enthusiasm.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT STRIKE
MADE ON THE SILVER CUP
On Monday Foreman Bariboo of the
Silver Cup miue had a look on his physiognomy that betokened pleasure and
satisfaction. It was soon learned that
another important strike had been
made in the mine. Some time sinco
six feet of solid galona was encountered in No. 12 drift, particulars of which
were reported by the Eagle. This
body of ore being found in an tine..-
pected placo made tho mine worth
fully half as much again for this add _-d
a great many moro tons of oro to tho
amount iu sight.   It insures a buily of
' ore from 4 to (i feet in width and 104
! feet in depth  for stoping,   Tho new
And is. in No. 11 drift ami is of more
lvalue to tho mine thun the previous
'strike for whilo it is but three foet in
width It is solid grey copper uf a quul
ity equal to anything previously found
.in thu mine.
No. fl drift is also looking good and
' No. 4 Is hotter than ever. Iu No, 1 thc
' body nf ore !s narrow, b'.'.: is solid grey
cupper and is so rich that it is not sunt
down the shute, but I.i sacked lu thu
stupe,   (bus   preventing any luss.    It
takos but a vory small piece of tbis ore
to weigh a pound and every pound is
worth a dollar in geld, so it pays ti be
careful of the stuff.
Supt. Crilly wus up to the. mino Tues
day and when the Bugle representative
met liim Wedne*��ilay he seemed ven
pleased at the way the development itl
the Cup is turning out. All our work
<m the Cup, said Mr. Crilly, sinco the
Pool-Young syndicate took over the
mine has proven satisfactory even beyond our most sanguine hopes. The
syndicate lliouclit they had a good
property, but they hud nut hoped thut
lt contained tho volume of oro that is
being continually cucoiinturcd.

W. Downle, superintendent of railways and steamers in tbo Kootenay ill-
vision of the C. P. I... arrived In Trout
Lake on Thursday lust and spent Friday in town leaving on Saturday morning for Nelson on tbe Lardo branch.
His presence in Trout Lake was due
directly to an article in last week's
Topic criticising the C. P. It. for the
abrupt cutting off of all freighting
privileges which had been allowed for
the past month or so over the now
branch of railway. Speaking to tlie
Topic Mr. Downle said it was not tho
intention of tbe C. P. H. to cause the
publio annoyance ln any way, they
wished to furthor the interests of the
peoplo in this so.tion by overy means
in their power and certainly Mr. Down-
lo's words are borne out by his prompt
action In travelling out of bis way to
enquiro into tho grievance of the Lardoau people, montioned in the last issue
of the Topic. Ho left assuring tlio
merchants anil others wbo hud goods
and supplies hold up by the rather unreasonable action of tho construction
department, that their Height would,
hi) sent through without any further
delay, That Mr. Downle has tlio
thanks of thc community for his
pi ompt attention to tbo wishes of the'
public goes without saying and his
kindly uctlou will remove entirely any
feeling of irritation occasioned by
what after all may havo boon a mis-
take pn the part of tho local ollicials.
Askod us to when tho operating department would lako over the railway,
Mr. Duwnie said that ho had been informed by Mr. Sullivan, the divisional
engineer in charge, after his party bad
inspected tbe line, about ten days ago,
that thero remained nothing now but
th'p government inspection and ho expected that a fortnight's timo would
witness tbe transfer of tho completed
branch from thu construction to tho
operating department, this would placo
tbo opening of tbo new lino to passen-
gor traffic some timo tbis week.
Continuing, Mr. Downio said ho had
just returned from thc Coast wl)ero ho
had boen arranging thu time table
which would govern tbo new road. He
said for tbe time being tbe present
would be a tl'l-WOOkl.V service trains
running Mondays, Wednesdays ami
Fridays, this could bo increased If exigencies of traffic required it. Tlio lake
sorvlco between Gerrard and Trent
Lake would bo arranged, he thought,
with the S. S. Vlotorla, wbothor b,\
purchase, lease or running arrangement
ho was unable to say just now as there
was nothing conclusive. This would
remain good for the current year.
Regarding an express olllco at Trout
Lake Mr. Downle said there would be
no difficulty as far as thc C. P. H. was
concerned and he bad no doubts but
that tho Kxprosa Co. would see tho necessity for tho arrangement of such a
service as ho was informed by overy
body that thore was a large amount of
this business transacted in tbe Lur*
deau which would bo vory mutorlally

"I wish to say," said a party recently
returned from Camborne to a representative of tbe Eagle, who interviewed him, "that 1 think highly of the
prospects of Fish Creek and its vicinity, I expected to see marked evidence
of a boom in Camborne, hut saw littlo

"Putting aside tho existence of gol'4
and minerals generally which are thero
ln large quantities, Cuinbortie Is bo'.nc
tu be a good camp owing to tbe splendid land lu Fish [{(ver valley. When
cleared of timber and brush this .Will

"The quartz leads are wonderfully

tbem. If they carry values itl proportion o( one lead ia twenty, then South
Africa may luok tu Its laurels as a gold
producing region. Cue Oyster may
bear a pearl of price, but ovary prospect is nut a peurl reel."
"Everyone agrees ou ono point however, und that is this; Mr. VV. B*
Pool is lonkcd upon as tiio maker of
tho Lardeau. To him mure than any
uuo, or anything, uot excepting cvou
tbe existence of gold qti-.'.t*:.;, a. mattei
bow uljuuiitiut, Is attributed the plungo
forward which the reputation cf tho
district has achieved."
"Ferguson and Fish Crook will neve:*
clash. Each Is assured of success along
different lines, but when I nieaoiiro
thulr splendid chances for the future
with the aitibitUinlng uf other places
I think I sou In what direction thc tide
uf prosperity is plainly tending."
"Yes. I think a groat camp will be

think its duy has dawned entirely yet.''

tou to 1'returia, is no more than the
accomplishment of what wus generally j
expected when the war came tu an nml.
He hud been mimed for soma time pu-*t
as the undoubted Buccebttoi* to Lord
Kitchener, and, indeed, he returned tu
South Aft'loa a year ago for that particular purpose. General Lyttluton's th
iindnulit'-tlly one of the best and
brightest reputations rat.de during the
war. Ills high qualities as leader were
fully proved, ho showed both skill and
self-reliance tn tbe handling of troops,
and was especially noticeable for hia
sound, solid sense, which ever gained
him the trustful support of all under
bim. Tho fact that be vtas a rifleman
commended him to Buller; and his own
brigade, tbe one he took out to South
Africa, and wblch was composed of
rifle battallions, believed In him thoroughly, and would have followed him
to the death. Lyttletou is a striking
illustration of the truth thut It is Impossible to predict wit-cow In war from
antecedents In peace litre. Lyttleto
before tbe Soudan campaign was nut
. eouuted a great soldier. He wus
thought to be at bis best in stuff work,
and he did much useful service in the
Hold of politics when private secretary
to his uncle. Mr. Gladstone. Lyttle-
ton's great value in tbe closet was due
to bis extraordinarily retentive memory; he is a walking encyclopaedia of
