FERGUSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA, OCTOBER 17, 1901.
$2.00 A YEAR.
Items'Of Interest Picked Up During
the Past Weeks.
Summer Properties Closing Down
and Winter Pay-Roil Produoers
Increasing Their Forces.
AN ACTIVE WINTER LIKELY
The weather Ior the past week has
been most favorable fur carrying on
mining operations in a camp like tbis
where so many properties are located
above timber line. Unlike ".other
seasotis quite a number of properties
will be worked all winter or up to the
end of the year at any rate. Miners
will not need to leave the eamp this
fall to seek work elsewhere. The
. properties which at present are forced
to pack their ore out on horses while
the snow is off are closingdown for the
winter, but tho old reliables are. making ready for the raw-hiding season, bo
that there is no material difference
made in tho pay roll. The outlook for
a live winter in the Lardeau was never
better.
Everything is now in readiness for
work on the Horseshoe, and adverse
claims must soon be filed if there is to
be any litigation. The Eagle understands, though, that' a compromise is
being arranged between Messrs. Ed.
Hillman and J. W. Westfall, the
' respective owners of the Horseshoe and
Lucky Boy. .
The Sullivan Group Mining Com'
pany, operating in southern East
Kootenay have decided to solve the
question of mining and treating low-
grade silver-lead ore at a profit, so far
as their interests are concerned. They
intend building and operating their
own smelter and refining plant.
The Triune's last ore shipment for
tho season Es now at the Landing, and
tlie men are all down, many of whom
have gone to work again on other
propertijB. Everything is beln;
placed in readiness for an early start
on a large scale noxt spring.
Andrew P. Rosenberger, A. J. Seott
and J.C.T. Crofts of Nelson, interested
in the Camborne and Oyster groups, in
the Pish creek camp\ are now visiting
the properties in the interests of thoir
company, the Northwestern Development Syndicate, Ltd.
Gordon McLennan, who has had
charge of the Nottie L. wagon road,
camo down the hill Tuesday evening,
the work having been completod to the
present workings. Tlio road will,
however, ho continued on up to the
Ajax at once.
The scarcity of provisions at the
Silver Cup mine will bo relieved today,
as 8. Daooy's entire pack train Is now
taking up supplies from bere. Tbe
full capacity ol tho cabins is to be
utilized with a working force of 10 men
this winter.
Louis Didisheim and Mrs. Didisheim
of Rovelstoke, and Alfred C. Garde,
manager of the 'Payne mine in the
Slocan, registered at the Windsor on
Monday. Mr. Didisheim and Mr.
Garde went up to the Cup on Tuesday.
A. Mllloy, a Rossland dentist who
has been in the camp for a couple of
weeks, has purchased Hub McCord's
interest in the I. X. L. claim, located
on the northeast slope of Trout lake.
The Slocan ore output, Ior 1000 was,
approximately, 35,000 tons. From Jan,
l'st to Oct. 5th of this year tbe shipments have beon 18,738 tons, 090 tons
of which went out last week.
Nothing new has developed with
regard to the proposed Bmelter Ior
Ferguson except tbat Mr. McCrossan is
arranging with the townsite owners for
a site.
If you haven't already secured tho
new nnd only comploto map of this
district, send a dollar to the EAGLE at
once and get one.
WHY WE NEED  A DOCTOR.
.John Russoll, a member of tho
miners' union, met with a serious accident last Sunday last while working
on a trail up Trout creek soveral hundred leet below the Ruffled Grouse
group. A stray rock came bounding
down from tho dump striking him on
the back of tho bead Inflicting a nasty
gash in the scalp and almost knocking
him senseless. He was alone, and it
took him four hours to make his way
to camp, wi th blood spurting from the
wound. He was cared for by the boys
as best tbey knew how until F. T.
Abey and others of Trout Lako were
summoned. He waB brought in to tbat
place on Monday. The wound is not
serious, but the weakness caused from
loss of blood iB the most serious. At
last reports tbe unfortunate man was
resting nicely and will likely be around
again in a few days. A. J. Gordon and
Robert Gunn, representing the miners'
union, went down on Sunday to look
after their injured member.
SLOGAN'S DIG MINE.
The Noble Five, in the Slocan, is
rapidly taking its old place in the front
rank of big properties in the Sandon
camp. The recent strike of 10 inches
of ore in the long tunnel, giving a
vertical depth of 1000 feet, was of very
great importance. But another strike
was made last week that means quite
as much to the future of the property.
They have uncovered what they believe
to be tbe large vein of the Surprise,
that crosses over the summit. Numerous surface cuts have been made and
the ledge encountered ln each, carrying a shoot of high grade ore, that
increases in width as it is. ex;
further down the hill.���Ledgo.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE'.'
No Chinese have been employed
underground by the New Vancouver
Coal Co., Nanaimo, Ior years, and no
untoward accident has occurred in
their mines, says the Slocan Drill.
On the other hand, the Dunsmuir interests bave and do employ Mongolian
labor in its mines, and their record Ior
the past threo years has been one of
appalling disaster and subsequent misery, culminating in tbe horror at Extension. The Chinese may not be to
blamo for the explosions and general
accidents in the Dunsmuir mines, but
tho contrast in the experience of the
two companies is most striking.
FERGUSON'S LIGHTING PLANT,
The Sawyer brothers of Revelstoke
are in town this week in tbe interests
of the Lardeau Power & Light Co.,
Ltd. Thoy are making arrangements
to put in a dam on the south fork, just
below town, while tho water is low. A
dynamo has been ordered and is now
on the way. Thoy fe.'l ir.elined to
install tho entire lighting system yet
this fall, if sufficient patronage is
guaranteed. Tbe plant will be put in
at all events noxt season.
A NEW "PROFIT" INDUBTRY.
Kidnapping is bocoming a live and
profitable business throughout tho
world. To tho expounders of tho
doctrine of "profit" tho following will
bo reassuring : In compliance with
a request from Washington the search
for tbe abductors of Miss Stono has
been abandoned. It was leared that
the brigands would kill her, should
they be pursued. The ransom will be
paid.
How's your printing ?
Mr. Inkster, who has interests in the
camp, is in town this week.
Ed. Hillman returned to the Landing
yesterday from a trip to Sandon.

Imperial Bank Deoides to Locate
Where the Mines Are.
A SOLID COMMERCIAL CENTRE
Ferguson Assuming Metropolitan
Airs and Rapidly Passing   4
the Pioneer Stage.
TBE BIG INDUSTRIAL CENTRE
The Eagle can today record another
advance step for Ferguson. The Imperial Bank of Canada huvo secured
the east side of the Nettie L. block and
will be open for business hero hy the
first of the month. The safe and
interior fixtures are now enrnute, and
should arrive here this week. The
manager is, Mr. McDonald, recently
cashier atth,e Revelstoke branch. To
everyone inlerested in having banking
facilities provided, and who is not ? this
will be cheerful news. It will not
only be a great public convenience under our present commercial system,
but it is significent inasmuch
as bankers, who are gonerally conservative, have decided to locato in Ferguson. With the mines, tbe pay roll,
the smelter, a bank, a waterworks and
electric lighting system established
or under'way, and assurances from
high officials that the C. P. R. will be
built to Ferguson insido of ono year,
the Eagle feels certain it hue not boen
expounding the richness and importance of tbis town and district in error.
Ferguson can no longer be termed a
townsite. It is the solid commercial
centre of this progressive district, a
distinction which it well deserves.
IS
A Foroe of Men Now Developing
The New Trout Creek Silver-
Lead Property.
Thos. Taylor. M. L. A., and Tbos,
Kllpatrlok and Geo. S. McCarter, along
with a woll known local mining man,
havo purchased the Kathleen group of
claims from Joseph Vorschoyle, who
staked them this season. Tho group
consists of four claims, situated on
Trout creek. There Is a good strong
ledgo, silver-lead, with shipping ore on
the surface. The new owners have
placed a force of men to work and as
soon as a cabin is built and supplies
packed in they will commence development work with the object of further
proving tho value ot the group. A
syndicate may be formed later on to
carry on tbe work, The price has not
been made public, but a cash-down
payment was a part of the agreement.
And as a result Mr. Verschoyle will
spond tbe wintor in tbo old country.
The Trout creek section appears to bo
coming to tho front, as the Unfiled
Grouse, Lucky Boy, llorseshoo and
other well Bpoken of properties aro in
that locality. In fact all along the
mountain range, where the formation
is broken by the Trout, Staubert and
Murray creeks, it seems to present possibilities heretofore largely unlocked for
by prospeotors.
TENDERFOOT   CHEEK   PROPERTIES
The Lardoau Valley Mlhes, limited,
operating on Tenderfoot creek, below
the foot of Trout lake, expects to increase its force of men at once. Seven
men have been employed. And the superintendent, James Rutherford, is
arranging for an additional crew to
work tho John L. Tho company has
its olllco In Spokane and> John Mackenzie is the secretary.,. Mr. Mackenzie said to a Spokesman-Review reporter last Saturday:
'���We have a lode from threo to six
feet wide on the John L. that has been
exposed by surfaco cuts tor a distance
of 350 feet. It is a free milling gold
proposition and tho oro will concentrate about 20 to 1. However, there 1b
some high grade oro in the ledge which
we expect to ship without concentration. We started work on the proporty
in June and wo havo run the tunnel
about 100 feet. On the hanging wall
side we have discovered threefeetof
solid ore. Samples run $49 in gold
and $4 tn silver. There is also about
nine feet of quartz blended with galena
of whlcb samples run.from $14 to $20.
"While excavating on tbe surface to
the south of the main tunuel we opened
a parallel reef, highly mineralized,
that seem3 to be 12 feet wide. We
shall crosscu't from the main tunnel to
open that lode. We shall go ahead at
onco with the work on a second tunnel
on the. lirst lode, 60 feet below tbe
upper level.
���'On another of our claims, the
Maggie May, we have opened' a promising galena showing. We have
uncovered a 13 foot lodo of silver-lead
ore, and from tb-ee to four feet of it
seems to be shipping ore. We are
pushing a tunnel to encounter the ore
shoot and expect to get it within 150
feet. 'Assays of samples give from $50
to $100, of whioh about 10 per cent, is
lead and tbe rest silver.
"The property is within a mile and a
half of the route of tho Lardeau railway, on which work is being pushed,
"The principal stockholders in the
company are George H. Jones of Usk,
Wash., James Rutherford, the superintendent, Couot A. R. Wachtmeister
of Sweden, G. C. Mouat of Spokane
and McCres & Merry weather of Spokane."

for Winter Shipments.
LOTS OF TONNAGE IN SIGHT
Companies Which Are Making the
Lardeau Prosperous and Themselves   Wealthy.
RAILWAY  CONSTRUCTION.
O. R N. Wilkie, P. L. S��� returned
to Ferguson from Twin Falls, at the
foot of the lako, on Tuesday evening.
He reports things rather brisk down
there. Men are busy slashing and
clearing the townsite, nnd preparing
for the erection of railway buildings.
The graders are working tbis side of
Tenderfoot creek, three and a half
miles from the lake. The hotels at
Tenderfoot and Twin Falls are doing a
land office business. The company are
now having less difficulty in gotting
men, and thero seems to bo no doubt
but the road will be completed this
year, and while it may not bo operated
this winter it will be ready to move
ore in the early spring. The boat now
plying on the lake is making three
trips a week, leaving Trout Lake at
8:30 a. m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and
Saturdays, returning tbo same day,
leaving Twin Falls at 3 p. m.
IF NOT ELSEWHERE IT'S HERE.
Robt. Gunn's building oh Victoria
avenue, east, is nearing completion.
Save your money boys, and buy lots
in Circle City. Watch for prices, etc.,

D. A. Dunbar will eommeneo the

store on Monday.
J. V. Perks of the Victoria hotel,
Revelstoke, has mado au assignment to
J. D. Sibbald.
Geo. Young, a deckhand on the
Kokanee, was drowned on Wednesday
week at Pilot Bay. He leaves a wife
and four children.
Last year $22,375,000 in gold was the
output from the Klondike district of
tho Canadian northwest. This year it
will probably bo less if anything.
The Revelstoke city council and the
waterworks people are endeavoring to
patoh up another deal. The "procedure" will probably bo according
to Hoyle this time.
The Thomson Landing-Camborne
road is almost completed. Malcolm
Beaton and Mr. Boulby have finished
their contracts and E. L. Kinman will
be through tbis weok.
O. R. N. Wilkie, P. I.. S., loaves for
Rossland today for a few days, and
upon his return will make Ferguson
his futuro headquarters, having decided that this is tbe best field in tho
province.
Supplies have been packed up to the
Boatrice mine and work is going along
vigorously. The Goat creek trail Is
unfinished, but when tho snow comes
there will be no trouble in making a
rawhide trail to bring tho ore to Ferguson, from where It will bo teamed
to the lake.
THE OLD DAYS PASSING BY
W. B. Pool, the busiest man in tho
Lardeau, went ou; to Revelstoke on
Monday for a day or two. Ho says that
while he expects to work a large forco
of men in the Nettle L., Ajax and
Maybe this winter, the plans of his
companies in this respect are only nov;
being arranged. The wagon road from
Ferguson to their mines is almost completed, but there will bo no hurry aboui.
getting in supplies and incroasiug thc
working force until snow comes. 'Contrary to expectation there is not likely
to be any shipments made via Thorn
som's Landing, as Mr. Pool has assurances from the C. P. R. that any or,:
stored at Trout Lake this winter will
be shipped out over tlieir now Lardeau
branch at early spring. This practically closes tho pioneer-day methods
of transportation. It means, too, that,
tho freighting teams will be confined
moro exclusively hereafter to traffic
between tho mines and the railway
which will soon reach Forguson. Tho
promoters of the smelter proposition in
Fergusqn have not yet approached Mr.
Pool's'companies, but as soon as they
aro ready for business and can give
satisfactory results they will lind no
difficulty in getting all tho ore they can
handle. Mr. Pool regrets very much
that he did not continuo work longer
on the Ophir-Lade group, but lie could
not foresee the line open fiill wo aro enjoying. However, things in general
are moving along progressively and thc
whirl of industry often prophesied by
Mr. Pool for this camp seems to bo
gradually moulding into reality.
SHOULD HAVE A LARDEAU MAP.
Someone has been stuffing tho Victoria Times and Nolson Miner concerning tho Metropolitan group of this
camp. Tho Metropolitan Is more than
"four miles from tho Silver Cup," in
fact it is located some ton miles up th'.
north fork of Lardeau creek while the
Cup is eight miles up the south fork
in almost au opposite direction.
Eighteen men will not bo engaged on
the property all winter. How these
erroneous reports get abroad is hard
to understand. Work has been suspended for the winter on tbo property
and a shipment of six tons, which
Manager McCrossan says will cos'j
about $185 a ton to land at'tho sraeltei.
is now enroutc.
PROGRESS CREATES NEW TOWNS.
II. M. Carter left on Tuesday morning for Walla Walla, Wash., where ho
will spend the winter. Harry has put
in a steady shift during this summer on
his mining properties In tho camp, am!
ho and his partner, Low Thompson,
have also arranged to placo thoir
Circle City townsite on tho market this
fall. O. R. N. Wilkie, P, L. S., has
plotted a portion of tho towusitc, and
Geo. B. Batho is to bo tho general
agent. A lively sale ot lots is anticipated when tho now townsite is thrown
on tho market in tho course of a couple
of weeks.
THE   IIALTIMORE   AND    BROOKLYN.
Low Thompson and H. M. Carter
have discontinued work on the Baltimore and Brooklyn for this season.
Thoy tapped the ledgo with a crosscut
tunnel last Friday, and found a little
ore, but no drifting has beon done as
yet. An open cut on a parallel ledge
gives promise of being an ore producer.

THURSDAY,   OCTOBER 17,
"The Trail smelter at Trail is being... company of to-day, except that
enlarged and when the additions there will be no possibility ot failure,
under way are completed it will have We say again, let the good work
a capacity of 1,400 tons per day. goon.
With additions being made to the
plants at Grand Forks, Greenwood
and Trail, a new smelter under
erection at Marysville in East
Kootenay and some others in contemplation it would seem as though
all the ores produced in the Kootenays and Vale will soon be treated
at home, and at the same time itjis a
sign that the ore output is increasing when there is such a demand
for more smelting facilities."
The Camborne camp is quieting
clown as winter approaches. All
mining camps have had to pass
through these various stages in
their career. The outlook forthe
Fish creek district next season is
most encouraging.
Scarcely a week passes in this
camp but what the absence of a
physician is painfully felt. When
one or two die from injuries tor no
other reason than lack of medical
attendance Lardeauites may bestir
themselves and secure a resident
physician at any cost.
if there is one thing more than
.another that this province is in need
of just now is redistribution. On
one pretext or another the subject
has been systematically shelved at
each session of the legislative!
assembly. It is high time that there
was a change.���Phoenix Pioneer.
The trusts are multiplying and
perfecting the industrial machinery
of production and distribution. You
can kick against the trusts all you
please, but they will flourish and
laugh at your wriggling. The trust
method is a higher and better one
than the old method of small production with its inestimable waste.
The remedy is not in decrying the
trusts, but to use them for the
benefit of all. That can only be
done by all the people owning them
and operating them for the public.
There is no other remedy. They
cannot be owned by corporations
and the public control them. Failure after failure has proven this,
even if it were not theoretically
untrue. Anything that is right in
theory is right in practice.���Appeal.
A guarantee of 225 16-candle
power lamps for six months will
secure for Firguson an electric
lighting system for this winter.
It would surely re-pay us all to All
this order. Arrangements to have
a few street lights would also be of.
appreciable value to the town and
way-faring pedestrians.
Thomson Landing family men
are becoming rather indignant over
the negligence of the educational
department concerning their legible
claim for an assisted school. They
have the children and the school
house, and the inspector has been
on the ground, but still no word
from the department is obtainable.
This is a matter Thos. Taylor, M.
L. A., might well look into.
Petty and personal political
wrangling continues at Victoria,
but the thought of calling the legislators together and giving this
province a lair redistribution measure doesn't seem to occur to the
premier. Surely no one can find
fault with the what the government
is doing. But what they are not
doing is of more importance to the
electors.
Political leaders of the old parties
in both Canada and the United
States are already lining up their
forces and preparing scare-crow
issues to fool the electors some
more. Soon thc victorious parties
will have to begin campaigning lor
the following elections as soon as
they reach office. The electors are
dissatisfied all right, but too many
don't know what they do want.
But education and enlightenment is
showing us that the embodiment
of the principles of the great private
trusts ot to-day in our legislation is
what we must adopt in self protection to the people.   The old policy
of ''the people be d " is not so
much in fashion   in   these  days of
l*reat trusts and progression.
Historical observation indicates
that the great masses of the people
ate content with the best that has
been objectively shown them. Hence
discontent is discovered only where
progress has been arrested, which
always means retrogression, life
bein;' an unfoldment. The ideal,
however, being of subjective origin,
yearns to express itsell in the objective world even in the face of
general discontent. Hence come
crucifictions. The nailing of the
N.azarene to the cross was an
expression of the philosophy commonly contained in the counsel,
"Let well enough alone." The
people did not want the kingdom of
heaven on earth. They did not
want the rules of the game changed
so long as any considerable number
might win at it. To-day it is much
the same. Mr. William Dean
Howells declares that if he had private information that the kingdom
of heaven on earlh were to come
to-morrow he would pray the Lord
to defer it for a week so as not to
scare the good people to death who
are praying for it all the time. It
is quite evident when we pause to
think about it that Mr. Howell's
position is well taken; the kingdom
of heaven on earth is at present
neither expected nor desired.���Pilgrim.
The old-time party grannies are
dumbfounded.      Just   why   their
ancient harangue is not accepted by
the twentieth-century  generation is
more   than   they  can- understand.
The thought of adopting a progressive platform, the only one which can
win the confidence of the electorate,,
never strikes them. The Revelstoke
Herald rather touches the spot when
it says:    "The party has no programme, no policy, no real leaders.
It is held  together, as far  as it
hangs together at all, by memories
and traditions.   But memories and
traditions, though they may keep
the old.'guard round the standard,
will  never   attract  the    younger
generation and furnish force enough
to win a campaign,   The Conservatives cannot expect to have a better
case, as long as they are content to
rely on mere criticism  of  Liberal
shortcomings in appealing to the
electors,  than they had at the last
election. It was conclusively proved
then that a clear and definite policy
embracing new features of interest
and attraction was what tlie party
needed.   But the lesson was allowed
to go unheeded and the  party has
simply been settling down   in the
mud ever since.   A finer field for a
leader of  energy and   spirit  was
never offered than is presented right
now by the field of public affairs in
Canada.    A bold challenge to the
Liberal  party, which  would divert
Canadian  politics from  the present
dead  and  dying  issues, which engross the attentionof the politicians,
into the real live questions, which
are agitating the public mind, would
very  quickly  change   the face of
affairs.    Does the party, which for
eighteen  years presided  over   the
destinies of Canada, not possess a
man  in its ranks with  brains and
force enough to seize on the opportunity?"

The Rossland Daily Calamity
Howler should make a note of the
following from the Nelson Miner:
The   British   Columbia    Mining
Record is apparently not in touch
with "the spirit ot the age" when it
attacks large capitalizations of com
panics.    It may be quite  true  that
the   custom   is  abused   by   some
unscrupulous     mining   companies
who   are   organized   for no   other
purpose than to fleece the investing
public, but the principle is right.
When we look   about   us and see
huge trusts or companies with from
five to one   hundred   millions   of a
capitalization, and even then paying
as high as thirty per cent, on watered stock and all, it gives some idea
ofthe practicability  of the concentration ot wealth,   It is a matter of
economy   pure  and   simple.    Is it
not reasonable to suppose that one
management with   say  a hundred
million dollars, can operate an industry cheaper than were the same
amount of money under the control
of a dozen different managements.
Let the good Work of co-operation
and centralization continue.    It is
only making ready for the day when
one capitalization will serve for all
Industries, and all  the  people will
share in its production���as shareholders do in the private trust or
Timid      Canadian     newspaper
writers are prone to deal with  the
social   conditions   of  the    United
States rather than  delve   into like
conditions    at    home.     And   the
following extract from  the Revelstoke    Herald   will   serve   as   an
applicable illustration, when it says:
"The social outlook in the  United
States is being discussed from every
point of view by scores ot writers in
the prolific field of the American
magazines and newspapers.     It is
being looked at from the capitalistic
side, from the socialistic side and
from   the   standpoint  of the mere
onlooker.    And the agreement on
one point is unanimous and that is
that the era of competition is entering upon the beginning of its end.
Capital has come to the   conclusion
that there is more profit in coopera.
tion with other capital than there is
in  fighting it.    Only yesterday the
lime honored axiom that competition
is the life of trade was considered
as Holy Writ.  Indeed a good many
people if asked for its origin would
have probably fathered it on  Solomon.     Today we see the greatest
money interests in the world endorsing the socialistic contention that so
far from  being the life of industry,
competition   is   an   obstacle    and
hindrance   in   the   way of reaping
industry's fullest harvest.   This is a
sign of the times that cannot  be
gainsaid.    And labor may well be
excused  some perturbation as   to
how this new order of things will
affect it.  Because while competition

the mine operators, and maintains
tbat laborers have not the. same right
to placo a price upon their labor as a
merchant has to name the price of the

strong plea ia made for tho sporting
women of Sandon. He thinks thoy are
fined too heavily, and should be
licensed and taxed according to value
���which reminds one of the atory,

The Review editor cannot be an old

Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
BIB CAU SB
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 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.
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of fhe 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 tbe
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point where
mining men coming into the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because evefy pound of ore from
these mines coming down the
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance of four miles.
BECAUSE when the railway reaches
the place where the mines arc 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 geographical location, unlimited water power, etc., and the right kind of people to make
a town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do the
rest.   Come and see for yourself.

OFTHIS DISTRICT
Including Fish Creek and
Upper Duncan River, compiled by S. Shannon, 13. A , and
A. P. Cummins, P. L. S., is to
hand, and all orders will be
filled by the Eagle promptly.
The map is certainly the best
thing ever attempted in this
line which has come to our
notice. The Trout Lake division is shown in black, the
Lardeau in red, and the Alnsworth in blue. A tenderloot
could take a copy of this map
and find any claim in the three
divisions. The mountains,
creeks, wagon roads, trails,
railway routes, and the location
and name (by a unique index)
of every mineral claim in the
district is shown.
Next to visiting the country in
person this map takes first place.
In fact every geographical
feature is so weil defined that
one can see at a glance the
nature of our country, and the
trend of the claim locations
gives an intelligible idea of the
mineral belts running through
the camp.    It is certainly the
BEST     WORTH     FOR     ONE     DOLLAR
