Locals Now Being Organized In All
Farts of Canada.
MOVEMENT GROWING RAPIDLY

Por Industrial, Not Politioal
Government.
B.C. ANDONTARIO ARE LEADING
J. M. Cameron, provincial organizer
for tho Canadian Socialist Party, left
Ferguson on Sunday for Slocan City,
New Denver, Sandon, Kaslo, Nelson.
Rossland, Grand Forks, Greenwood,
Phoenix, Cranbrook-, Fort Steele and
Fernie, to continue his organizing
tour.   Mr. Cameron has
Met With Good Success
so far, and the now movement is growing. The present headquarters for the
new party in the Dominion is In
Toronto. Everywhere throughout the
Dominion locals are being organized.
Those locals, In thoir respective provinces, will have their own executives
���the headquarters for British Columbia being in Vancouver���theBe again
to be represented in the Dominion
executive. The provincial locals will
have full power to
Formulate Their Own Political Platform,
and will also have their say in the
policy for the Dominion. Thc first
object of the new Socialist party will
not necessarily be to placo candidates
in the field, but to
Ednrnte nud Organise Their Force.;
and whon they become strong enough,
go in and win what thoy want with the
ballot. Members of the new party
plodge their belief in, and their inten
tion to work for the ultimate public
ownership of all the means of production, distribution and exchange, and
also to work and voto for any candidates
which they themselves nominate Thoy
confess their loss of faith in the old
political parlies and recognize that
Nl Holly Independent Action
must bo taken, when taken at all
Political corruption and'private capitalistic domination forces tbem to this
conclusion. With twontleth-centurj
conditions must como twentieth-century legislation. Socialists recognize
that what is good for tbe few���the
trusts���would bo good for all the
people, Thoy contend that tho manses
must win with the ballot, rather than
tbe strike
Public Ownership of Private Trust.
would remove tho cause of indust"lal
strife. The trusts are proving the
practicability of co-operation rather
than competition by adopting socialistic theorios, on ti selfish basis. Tbe
natural outcome of tho present-day
concentration of wealth und power
must inevitably lead to socialism und
the people imirt lie educated and mado
ready to accept the now era of things.
To do this is the Immediate object ol
the new Socialist party.
Mr. Cameron addressed the Literary
Bocioty hero lust Friday evening, for a
short time, under tho caption of "Capitalist minds." Though suffering
sovcrely from an abscess on his nock,
ho oudoavored to show the folly of a
system which allows tbo few to corner
tbo means of production' and) distribution, und tne unjust methods by whieh
these mon become dictators to and
oppressors of tbo producing class. On
Saturday ovening, after the Minors'
Union meeting, Mr. Camoron held
A Well Attended Public Meeting
and gave many good reasons why our
present-day political government must
becomo un iciluati iul government. On
this occasion the speaker was in much
better trim and gavo an
Interesting und Instructive Address.
By a standing voto of at loast two to
duo tt wus resolved to organize a local
(No. 3(1) of tlio Provincial Socialist
Party lo Ferguson,   Tho now branch
starts out witb a fair-sized membership, and
A Meeting Will he Held Tomorrow
evening, (Friday) aftor the Literary
society adjourns, for tlio purpoao of
electing officers for the ensuing term,
receiving new members, and making
ready to furthor propagate the principles of socialism. The B.C. executive
will meet in Vancouver on Thanksgiving day, after which charters will be
forwarded to the various locals. A
platform will also be drafted and submitted to locals, by referendum vote,
for its adoption. Though . political
action may be deferred for some lime,
to allow complete organization, there
Is a good deal of work cut out for the
new party, an organization which tbe
Eaole wishes every success.

THE LARDEAU DISTRICT.
We are in receipt of a map of tlie
Lardeau mining district, Including
Fish creek and Upper Duncan river
lt is, we understand, tbo first authoritative map of this comparatively new
district, and haB been compiled by
Messrs. S. Shannon and A.P. Cummins
of Ferguson, B. C. Ferguson is in the
heart of the Lardeau district. We
refer to the map, not. to advertise the
compilers or oven to draw attention to
the fact that it is a fine specimen of the
Colonist lithographic work, but for the
purpose of doing unto others in some
measure what the map has done unto
us, namely, give tbem some idea of
where the Lardeau Is and what the
construction of tbe Lardeau branch of
the C.P.R. will mean. Of course most
people have a goneral idea of the
location of tbe district, and will know
that to find It on the map nf British
Columbia they must look in Kootenay.
The district lies northeast, east und
southeast of the northeast Arm of
Uppor Arrow lake, and to get to Upper
Arrow lake, you leave the main line of
tho C.P.R. at ttovelstoko and tako the
Arrow Lake brunch to its southern
terminuB. From this point tho C. P.R.
location for the Lardeau railway extends along the northeast Arm and up
Pish creek to tho town of Camborno.
Thon it makes a curve and extends
down on tho oust sido of Fish creek
until a point opposite the head of the
Arm is reached, and then it swings to
tho southeast up Salmon creek and
across the divide to Trout lake, following that lako and the Lardeau river
until it roaches Duncan rivor, which
flows into tho north end of Kootenay
lake. Tho railway will be about 00
miles long, and if one may judge from
the number of mining locations, it will
open up a very valuable part of tho
country. In an area of about 000 square
miles, thero are 1,367 recorded claims
In a general way the claims run in
threo belts, having a course from southeast to northwest. One belt, and it is
that containing the smallest number of
claims, lies south of Lardeau river and
Trout lake and extends to the valley of
Salmon oreek. Another lies north of
Trout lako and extonda across the
valley of FIbIi creek, and tho third Is
about two und o. half milestotho northeast of the second, but unites with It
at tho northwest extremity. Whon
the railway is completed, and this will
probably bo at nn early day, the
Dominion having given a subsidy for
it, thero will bo all-rail connection from
ttovelstoko to the head of Kootenay
lake, io a general way parallel to thn
Nakusp & Slocan railway, which Is 25
miles further south. This affords a
very good Illustration of the manner In
which a mining country ought to be
opened by fall.
Evory pound of hay, oats and grain
handled by the Hudson's Bay Company
at Nelson is grown by the farmers of
tho Northwest Territories. Every
pound of paint used by tho farmers of
tho Northwest Territories is manufactured from lead smoltod, refined and
corroded in Germany. If (the minors
of Kootenay are helping tho farmers of
tho Northwost why shouldn't the
farmers of tho Northwest, through
their representatives in tho houso of
commons at Ottawa, help tho miners of
Kootenay ?���Tribune.
IT
If We Could Secure a Division All
By Ourselves, But
WOULD IT BEFAIR TO ALL?
J.J. Langstaff on Redistribution, Refining, Railway, and the Camp's
Future Outlook.
NEW ERA FOR THIS DISTRICT
J. J. Langstaff of the Trout Lako
Topic was In town on Monday, and paid
the Eagle a fraternal call. Mr. Lang-
stall wants to seo redistribution without
delay, but not exactly as outlined by
John Houston of tbe Nelson Tribune.
He would like both Revelstoke and
Kaslo cut out of this riding, thus giving us the Lardeau, Trout Lake and
upper Duncan divisions, all of which
have the samo mineral belts and interests, At any rate Mr. Langstaff wants
to 806 the Lardeau division retained, so
as to offset tho voting power at Kaslo.
Kevelstoke, bethinks, would then have
plenty left If tbe Big Bend iswhat it is
cracked tip to be.
Mr. Laugstatr expressed himself aa
very mush in favor of a government
refinery, and views it as tho only
solution of our present dilenna. Canadians must learn to stand alono and
build up their own industries if they
hope to become masters of their own
destiny.
Speaking of tho A. &��� K. railway,
Mr. Langstaff says construction is still
beir.g pushed along, winter quarters
are being built, and it looks as though
the C. P. R. intended to keep right on
at work until A"rowhead is reached.
Mr. Langstaff is an old-timer in tbe
Kaslo and Slocan camps, aud even
after financing u newspaper in tbis
district for the last three years, is still
confident that the Lardeau and Trout
Lako district has a much brighter
future than any other mining camp in
tho provinco. He looks upon the past
as a stago whicli every camp must pass
through but gladly notes that tho
development of our mineral resources
is beginning to justify and substantiate
his oft expressed faith in this portion
of British Columbia.

AS TO MOTHER LODES.
With an idea tbat physiologieal principles run through tho formation of
ores many minors believe in what is
termed the "mother lodo." It has
grown to bo a popular superstition iu
almost every mining district that some-
whoro in tho locality a mother lode can
be found, compared   with   whieh  tlio
kid" amounts to nothing. Nobody
thinks of looking for the "brother"
lode, tho "sister" lode or tlio "niothor-
in-law" lodo but all aro on the search
for the mother lodo.
As a matter of fact thoro is no such
thing as a mother lode, unless at somo
groat doptb in the bowels of tho oartb
% number of veins carrying similar
classes of ore run together into u common body. But a mother lode, if on-
titled to that name, novel comes to tho
surfaco.
Some veins aro larger than others,
but there is no parentage applied to
tho fact. It is meroiy thc circumstance
of a larger fissure in tho rocks filling
up with veinous matter and ore.
Thousands upon thousands of dollars
have been squandered by men in search
or some great parental lode.
This is ono of the most prominent
features of a placer district. In the
Klondike country promoters talk glibly
of tho mother lode, as if a rich placer
necessarily meant tho existence of
somo lodo that had mothered the
deposits withont imparlng her own
productive powers.���Western Mining
World.
t
OLD METHODS PASSING AWAY.
Some people contend that under an
industrial government individual
ambition would bo hampered, and lhat
a man would havo to work wherever
tbe majority wanted him to. The
Eagle notices that the present mode,
of government experiences no difficulty
in finding men to accept a government
job in even tbo most isolated portions
of Canada. These doubters who fear
socialism forget that tho public works
department, tho post office, police
system, school system and prisons are
nothing moro or less than common
everyday socialism in operation. But
with a complete socialistic form of
government' tho executivo officers
would have to submit all expenditures
to the sanction of the people, tbe samo
as municipalities do now. Some call
this course the initiative and referendum, but call it what you will ills a
step towards purifying trovernmeut.
When politics is eliminated from our
government and tho whole people go
into business, in tbeir own interests,
there will bo no incentive to corrupt.
Co-oporation must soon replace competition in the industrial world, and it
is timo wo were preparing for tho
change.
ALL RH1HT IF OX THE SOL-ABE.
Speaking of the development of a
mine through tbo sale of stocks, the
following quoted from tho Mining
Reporter of Denver in the issuo of May
31st, 1801, covers tlio subject to the
fullest extent: "In fact, wo bolievo
that through small holdings In honestly
conducted mining enterprises the
greatest amount of development can be
accomplished. It in against stock
propositions in which, through misrepresentation, nn effort is made to sell
stock in a reducing mino for an amount
largely In excess of any reasonable
conception of its value or in a prospect
and use tbo money for any other purpose than tbe development of tho
prospect. The sale of prospect stocks
for any other purpose than development is a swindle. The sale of prospect
stocks for purpose of development Is
tho most sensible and practical means
for mine making."
ONLY A MATTER OF DOLI.ABS.
Tlio great steel trust, owns up to
earning$64,000,000 not in six months.
This is more than tlio earnings of all
the national banks in tlie United States
for a wholo year. And yet the stool
trust got into a squabble with Its employees over a littlo matter nf wages.

Things in General are Settling Down
to a Winter Basis.
RAILWAY WILL RE COMPLETED
Ore Shipments, Ore Returns, New
Development Work, and Other
Mining Items of Interest.
Tbo past ween has been rather a,
quiet one in this camp. There is too
much snow /or wheeling and not
enough for sleighing. The Nettie L.
has not started up yet, but tbo Silver
Cup, Beatrice, Black Warrior and Old
Goicl are now working winter forces,
whilo tbe Cup Is the only one rawhid-
ing at present. Both tho Horseshoo
and Ruffled Grouse, on Trout ereok,
havo made tbeir maiden shipments,
the returns of which aro not to hand.
The railway may be completed to tbo
foot of the lake, but it will create littlo
activity for this winter. Chas. W.
McCrossan's Vulcan Furnace was to
bo shipped from 'Frisco to Ferguson
yesterday, according to contract. By
the timo it reaches tbe Landing sleighing will be good and thero will ho no
delay in getting it freighted up and
into operation shortly after tho New
Year. This should cause a good deal
of local stir. Building operations for
tbo season are drawing to a closuand
things generally are assuming the
usual winter aspect.
Lato news from tbe C. P. R. branch
which is being extended into the Lardeau is that good progress is being
made, says tho Nelson Miner. Tbo
contractors aro certain that the road
will bo finished from Lardo to Selkirk,
a distance of 35 milos this yoar. Track
has been laid to a point five miles beyond thc tirst crossing, or for a distance
of J'j miles from Lardo. If the .steel
comes to hand, and it is being delivered
as rapidly as possible, the road will \x.
in condition for truffle by Christmas o-
at tlie farthest by Now Year's day.
Tho contractors do not wish to make
two jobs of tlie contract and are determined to finish the work this year an
so they will keep on till this is done,
oven if thoy have to finish the last of
tho road in a foot or two of snow.
The smelter tests of the Ophir-Lade
oro recently takon to Trail by Messrs.
Pool and Lado aro most encouraging.
Two tests were made, one from HO ton.-,
which went ,17.07 ozs. in gold to the
ton, a value of noarly $700, and another
from 100 tons, which gave 8.12 ozg. in
gold or $102 to tho ton. Theso are

THURSDAY,   NOVEMBER 21, 1901.
J. M. Kellie, politically deceased
lias much to say of the millions of
dollars and millions of acres of land
grants which have been squandered
in this province by past governments, nearly all of which, strange
lo say, was supported by Mr. Kelly
while representing a large portion
of the interior at Victotia. The
Iaole is pleased to learn that Mr.
Kellie has lived, though retired to
obscurity, to see lhe folly of his
ways.
Mining stock is too often manipulated in the interest of the few, to
the prejudice of the. many. The
property ot Ihe company, if of any
value, oftentimes runs into debt, is
:>o1d out and bought up in the interest of the few, but these methods
are perhaps less to be condemned
than the mnre vicious practice ol
floating large stock schemes upon
worthless property, merely to market the stock for what it will bring,
or speculate in it on the hoards.
The mine owners' association is
now getting down to business.
They are beginning to realize that
by looking out for their own interests and taking such co-operative
steps as may be necessary to develop their own salvation, instead of
whining about bad government,
high wages ind taxes, they may yet
succeed. ' They see now that the
great private trusts are their real
oppressors and not the agitator
within the ranks of socialism and
organized 'abor.
Supposing Ihe Kaslo end of the
proposed new electoral riding of this
district did elect the first representative. He certainly would be
placed there by lhe socialist and
organized labor vote, and that member would know that this rapidly
growfhe portion of his riding would
surely have the voting power hy the
time hia term expired. Doesn't i
look reasonable to suppose lhat he
would act fairly by us ? Narrow-
minded people are not contented
with fairness. They want a selfish
pull.
A monster corporation with a
capital that will make thc billion
dollar steeel trust pate into insignificance is lo be organized in Pitt1-
burg, it will have the enormous
sum of ten billion dollars capital.
This is thc largest capital ol any
corporation now in existence, and
lhe field of operation tp be covered
hy the new combination embraces
two worlds. An application for n
chartcj has been filed in Arizona.
The corporation is to he known as
the International Construction and
Development Company. The new
:ompany will, according to its charier, engage in the manufacture of
iteel of all kinds, mine copper, gold,
iilver and coal, will raise sugar and
���efine if, will build ships, raise, kill
ind sell live stoclc, raise and
ivaporate tropical "frittt, colonize
lifferent parts of the 'new posses-
lions of the United States, handle
umber fromits own preserves and
eal in fire clay.
Not every business venture in any; and systematic development. Mines
line will succeed, no bank will loanj are made by putting labor and
all its money to one individual, no means into the property itself and
insurance    company   will   risk   its
THIS SPACE RESERVED FOR
whole capital on the burning ol one
building, no prudent investor wi:
stake his whole capital on the development of one prospect unless perhaps he is a practical miner himself.
There is a risk in every line of
business. The risk in legitimate
mining is no greater than in any
other line ot business.
It doesn't seem to strike the
average B. C. elector that every
dollar his representative at Victoria
secures for his constituency has to
be paid back some day. And in the
meantime that we are paying inter1
est on about eight millions of dollars
of that kind of money, though much
of it has gone in bonuses to build
up private industries which are
fleecing us in return. This province
should go into business for itself;
let politics be discussed in hades
where it belongs.
Toronto seems destined to become
an American publishing centre
The socialist movement is growing
so rapidly in the United States that
both the old parties are united in an
endeavor to keep influential socialist
newspapers out of the mails, under
the plea of their not being second
class matter. American socialist
publishers seek to cover their field
through the medium of mailing
courtesies existing between the two
countries. We sometimes hear a
good deal of emply babbling about
a "sweet land of liberty," but it
seems after all that seekers for that
noble right must come to Canada,
where the unjust social conditions
have not developed so acutely as
across the line.
The Canadian Manufacturing Association have paid a high compliment to the Liberal cabinet which
has so ably conducted the destinies
of Canada, by banquetting Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues,
editorially says the Kootenay Mail.
And well they might. Wilfy and
his colleagues can be depended uprtn
to look after those who control the
means of production. Yet the
innocent employees of these protected private trusts continue to vote
the old ticket, while their employers
keep right on fleecing the consumer
Iheir own or some one else's
employees. And the Kootenay
Mail has the nerve to pose as a
champion ot the cause of labor.
Bah I
Amnt the need ot a government
r&finery in this province the Topic
says : There is no inducement to a
silver-lead miner to operate his
property when almost two-thirds of
the lead value is assessed away
before he gets any returns. Smelter
charges, duty, freight and thi
"pound of flesh" for the grea'
American lead trust plays the very
d nice with the silver-lead miners of
this country. This is a serious
matter to the Kootenay and if some
of the dailies of the province instead
of expending so much wind advertising an alleged bad government,
were to devote a little space and
one-quarter the enthusiasm to this
matter, which closely affects our
bread and butter, the country would
have something to thank them   for.
not into the pockets of the
promoters. Few mining properties,
indeed, which show any possibilities
of becoming mines with development, and which in fact justify
exploitation, disappoint the miner
upon his outlay. There is today a
greater demand for good developed
mines than heretofore in the history
of the mining states and larger
developing projects are constantly
being undertaken. Brought down
to a true economic basis, mining,
not speculating in mines, offers
greater returns upon the capital
invested, and is upon the whole no
more hazardous than any ordinary
mercantile venture,
There is no section of the country
where some people are not holding
worthless mining stocks, bought
under this or that scheme, under
promise of making a bonanza investment, and not one in a thousand of
these schemes ever get beyond the
beautiful pictures which are painted
to those who buy stock, says Fred.
C. Sammie in lhe Western Mining
World. Yet, this lact does not
impair the possibilities of legitimate
mining, distinguished Irom mining
stocks when carried on under proper
safeguards and on lines of actual J i;
If the mining divisions of Lardeau, Trout Lake,: Upper Duncan
and Ainsworth were consolidated
into one provincial electoral riding
it would have withi.n-its borders five
miners' unions, namely, Ferguson,
Kaslo, Whitewater, McGuigan and
Ainsworth, with two more in sight
at an early date. These unions
will average a..membership of say
two hundred each, thus representing
at least one thousand votes, a sufficient number to elect any represent
tative they or the Socialist party
bring out. Organized labor and
the socialists will win in every riding of the Kootenays. Now this
element will not elect representatives
whose principles are based on thr
"distribution of patronage" plan.
The j;ood and welfare of the province will he their first aim ; thr
pap leature will have to take second
place. It matters very little frum
which portion of the riding a candidate will be nominated, so long as
he stands lor the principles which
the Socialist party and organiztd
labor espouse, and helps to carry
put the platform formulated by those
who nominate him. We should
break away from this "get all the
money you can" silliness, We, as
a people dependent upon the development of our natural mineral
resources, are face to tace with a
series of conditions brought about
hy new national conditions, ln
short we are up against Uncle Sam's
big private trusts. Our only salvation, therefore, is to adopt the same
principles as those who are dictating
to us ; except that all the people in
this province will be shareholders in
the new trust. In short, we must
have an industrial government, and
not a political government. Tht
latter has been a curse to this
province. The former we mus'
have. Does anyone in this district
imagine that a representative who
is elected to help bring this form ot
government about,, will be narrow-
minded enough to stoop to former
selfish distribution! of patronagt
methods? We may as well admit
ut once that the Socialist party and
organized labor will dominate in
this and other Kootenay ridings.
Then can we not accept their representatives-elect beforehand as men
who will be fair and broad-minded,
working for a noble cause���the
emancipation of the producer-
rather than the old selfish clique
way of doing things.

Suspicion and jealousy Is not necessarily a bad thing. It sometimes
loads to tho prevention of wrong. But
oversuspiciousness is one of tho greatest defects of character. Tbo ovorsus-
picious man ia naturally a aneak. Ho
Works secretly and whispers and winks
what ho has to say. He believes overy
libel that la told about anyone and
speeds Itnnward to thomindu of others.
Ho will tall you a falsehood about

turned, will tell the same person a
falsehood about you. He Is a good
man to keep in the background.

whan wo ponder on tho fact that labor

poverty, squallor, privation and wretchedness, and provide all with comfort
and plenty, we are tempted to censure
Mr. Darwin for thus slandering the
monkey who is unable to defend him'
self. Of course It can bo said that thc
alleged descent occurred a long time

anyhow, but that is no excuse for

H
Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
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 btiilt up on in
British Columbia.
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during the past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
. but the new finds and many test
ore shipments are exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
B\E\C\A\U\S\E
Because, the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north 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 theni
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 in to the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore from
these mines coming clown the
hill   lands   first   in    Ferguson.
' From here it will be  teamed to
.' transportation on thc lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railwa y reaches
the place where thc mines are it
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 the mines, the pay roll, the natural geo^raphi*
cat location, the supply trade, the banking Institutions, unlimited water power for all
purposes; and the right kind of people to make a town. The ore shipments, inci -easing
business, and money and enterprise will do the rest.    Come here and see for yourself.
