The Venezuelan troubles remain
about' whore they wore last week.
President Castro does not propose to
resign the presidency. He sulci to a
correspondent of the associated press:
'You are at liberty to say that I have
fought during two years to retain the
stprome power which was invested in
me by the peoplo of Venezuela. I will
no more abdicate than will I resign.
The Matos resolution without the
assistance of tho powers will soon be

A very closo blockade is being

LI
To The Silver Cup Mine
Occurred Yesterday.
IT RONS VERY SMOOTHLY
Most of the Buckets Woro Hung
Thursday and a Trial Given.
Everything proved Highly
Satisfactory.
When J. W. Westfall was in Ferguson Monday an Eagle reporter located
him and in the conversation that ensued considerable information waB
gained about a number of promising
claims in the district and also'about
the methods adopted by the local mining organizations with which he is
connected. The name of his company
Ib tho Cariboo Creek Development
Syndicato and their principal property
is the Mohecan group situated at the
head of Gainer creek, six miles from
Ten-Mile.
The syndicate was formed laBt season ond tho abovo claim was acquired
and a force of men put to work early In
October. Work was continued up till
Xmas when the supply of candles ran
short and as a supply could not well be
got in over the snow work waB discontinued till spring. The old tunnel
on the property was cleaned out and
retimborod and tho tunnel was extended CO feet further with vory encouraging results* Tho soft caving formation, found in the first part of tho tunnel was left behind and the face is now
in good solid formation and had boen
for 30 or more feet. The oro body
widened out to three feet of lino carbonate oro, and the management are
disappointed that tho men had to quit
for they expected by indications that
the carbonates would soon have boen
replaced by solid high grade oro. It
was estimated that about 40 feet more
would have brought tho lace directly
beneath the surface showing. Next
season tlio property will be worked
extensively. Tho oro carrios good
gold values, but tbe last sample has
beon assayed in Rossland and the
result has not been received to date at
the Trout Luke olllco.
Agriculture- In 11. O.
.The census department at Ottawa
has issued bulletin No. 12, which
relates to agriculture in B. C. The
bulletin states that the land in farms
comprises 31.59 per cent, in all improved, nnd G8.41 in an unimproved
state. The unimproved lands consist
of 391,096 acres in forest and 732,649
in various conditions. The total valuo
ot farm property Is 832,465,512. The
total value of farm products is $3,479,
683 for crops, and $2,740,079 for animal
products, making 19.16 per cent on the
investment on tho average farm, or a
little higher than is shown in the
states of Washington and Idaho. The
rate of wages Is 2J times higher than
in Prince Edward island.
A -.liillery c.f Pictures.
Tbo special set of ten pictnree which
tho Free Press, Winnipeg, have been
giving to subscribers to their Weekly,
has boen withdrawn. Hereafter subscribers lo tho Free Pross and Lardeau Eaglo will receive 12 pictures on
receipt of their order, and one additional every month during 1903. We
have received from tho Free Press tho
special twelve painting reproductions.
They aro beauties und well worthy of a
place in any homo. The pictures have
evidently been selected with great
care, and cover, as their title would
indicate, a pleasing variety of subjects.
The set consists of the following:
"Yachting," "Algerian," "Roman
Boy," "Polo," "Spaniel and Duck,"
"Chrysanthemums," "Smooth Sumac"
"Coaching," "Ltiolle" (a splendid
picture of a horse), "Jacqueminot
Roses," "Indian Maiden" and "Poin-
te.i Dog O'Ulsides." The last Is an
artistic picture of a dog so well executed as io bo scarcely distinguishable
from a delicate water color.
4800 persons were killed in an earthquake at Andijan, Russian Turkestan,
on Dec. 27th.
The annual installation of officers for
the Odd Fellow's lodge at Trout Lake,
took place on Wednesday.
The King of Saxony is said to be

The roads are in the best of condition since tho thaw and they are

The saw mill has been kept busy
filling orders up to the end of this
week. On monday tho men will be
startod cutting logs for next summer's

The Imperial Bank has issued a neat
Xmas card showing a statement of the
assets and liabilities of the bank.
Tbis has been presented to the Bank's
patrons.
A very successful concert was given
at Trout Lake last night in aid of the

The inventor of the "Carrie Nation"
cocktail is threatened with a $10,000
damage suit by Mrs. Nation for using

The unusually deep snow of last
fall and early winter has proven :
serious draw back to the Riblet Tram
way Co. in building tho tram from
Eight-Mile to the Sliver Cup mine but
this did not prevent Mr. McLeod, the
Superintendent, from completing the
job and at the same time making a
splendid succoss of tho tram. The
Cup people can now dispense with the
rawhlders and havo their supplies and
ore taken up and down a great
deal more quickly, lees expensively
and with a great deal lessened risk of
damage and loss. Besides this it will
enable tbe company to get the heavy
compressor machinery to the mine at
once ang get it installed bofore s*. riDg,
So it was of great consequence that
the tram be completed in good order
and there is hardly a man ln this camp
who will not feel pleased. The Cup
will install its compressor and the
development will be carried on rapidly
We expect to see large quantities of
oro coining from the Cup when tho
little odds and ends about the tram
are completed and the machinery
started in earnest.
The Lute Archbli-ho-i of Canterbury.
A peculiarity of thelato Archbishop
of Canterbury, which I have not seeu
referred to in any of his obituaries,
was the extraordinary harshness and
rasping character of his voice, a peculiarity of which he was well aware
and concerning which he was wont to
tell all sorts of amusing stories, among
others one to the effect that on a sun-
day evening, paving sliwped into a
back pew of a popular ohuroh in the
east end of London, and joined in the
singing of a Moody and Sankey hymn
from a hymn book which had been
extended to him friendly fashion by a
laboring man, tho latter at the end of
the first verse, drew away the hymn
book from him, gave him a dig in the
ribs with his elbow and remarked in a
loud whisper:
"Hore, dry up, mister, you're-spollin'
the Bhow."
Nor havo I seen It mentioned that
tlie lute archbishop was descended in a
direct line from Lady Godiva, so
famous in connection with her decol-
leto ride through tho streets of Coventry. Tho old archbishop was proud of
this ancestry as well as of tho fact that
he was entitlodto bear the same coat of
arms as her husband, Loefric, Earl of
Mercla.���Marquise de Fontenoy.
Ore Gol"ff Out.

Victoria pretty busy.
AustrHllan Politic
"The great Democratic expariment
under tho Southern Cross has been
tried; tho first session of the first
Australian National parliament entrusted with tho most advanced Constitution in tho world, and Australians
are eagerly scanning the fruit of seventeen month's continuous aud uuparal-
led legislative activity."
So writes a Melbourne correspondent
on Oct. 22, in commenting upon tho
work of the first session of the first
parliament electod under tho now
constitution of tho Australian Commonwealth. The record of that extraor
dinary prorogued session is Interesting
both for the amount of work done-
less than 32 Acts of Parliament were
passed, including a tariff which was
practically a fusion of six previously
existing and conflicting tarilts���and
from the character of that work. From
our correspondent's record it may bo
thus summarised:
Adult Sufferage.
Every adult woman aud every adult
man is made a voter in all national
elections throughout the  entire commonwealth,
"Property" Vetoed.
All   property    qualifications     for
voters are swept away.
Wealth Colotered
No man may spend over his election
more than ��250 if competing for tho
Senate or, or ��100 if standing for the
House of representatives.
Aliens Excluded.
The door is shut upon Chinese, Japanese,    colored    laborer,    and   any
other alien immigration calculated to
lower the standard of living aud wages
In the Commonwealth.
A Whito Australia.
The Kanakas are  being gradually
banished from Queensland.
State Telegraphs and Telephones.
Postal and telegraph and telephone
rates within the Commonwealth  have
been cheapened  to  an oxJ<rnt  noyer
before possible.
Anti-Mill tarlsln,
A deadly blow has been Vtruck at the
professional   military   BpiKt   by tho
affirmation of the principle that there
Bhall be a purely citizen   army   for
Australia, and uo compulsory service
outsido the Commonwealth.
Self-Government.
The right of Governors or Governors-General   to oppose  or  defend or
publicly cominont on Ministerial acts
has been dramatically   and emphatically repudiated.
From Messenger to Under-Secretary.
A Federal publio servico in which
the very highest posts shall bo open
to the poorest with ability has boen
legislated for.
Stato Minimum Wage.
A minimum wage of .��110 a yoar for
overy adult Government o:nploye, with
three yoars service, woman or man,
has beon provided.
Black Labor Barred.
A dato has  beon fixed aftor which
Australian mails cannot bo carried on
steamers employing black labor.
"And," adds the correspondent,
"tho list is capable of groat expansion.
The 220 sittings of tho House of Representatives during tho first Federal
session {havo irrevocably stamped
Australian political development with
tho hall mark of extreme radicalism
and qust-Socialism."

and the writer tool: occasion to ask
Mr. Westfall for his opinion of the
property for ho knew it bottor than
anyone elso under the former ownership. Ho stated that the Primrose is
a very lino property, first its splendid
position in a highly mineralized /.one;
second its fine ledges and lastly on
account of its ore carrying rich gold
values together wilh tho presonce of
silver in large quantities.
"I have no doubt," said Mr. West-
fall, " of the high gold values fer I
made a very careful examination and
selected samples across and for the
full extent of tho lead as fur as opened up, a little over a year ago and 1
found tho average to assay high iu
gold."

market will come to an end. A second

India. China is regaining Its usual

EDITORIAL NOTES*
Exceptionally good opportunities
exist right here in Ferguson to
make money and plenty ol it.
The plan is a proven one and it
would not require much capital
either. The idea is for someone
with enterprise to organize a local
development syndicate to take hold
'of desirable mining properties that
are being held by prospectors who
have not the means to open them
up. There are many such properties close to Ferguson, and they
are lying practically idle simply for
the reason that their owners are
unable to get the required capital to
open them up. If ten or twelve of
the business men and residents
would form themselves into a syndicate it would cost them very little
individually to open up two or
three properties during a season
and the chances are very favorable
for making a nice bit of money.
Then look at the good it would do
the town in many ways. The
most good, we believe, would be
from the advertising it would give
the camp. It would prove to the
people on the outside what we all
undoubtedly feel, that we have the
best of confidence in the mineral
resources ol our camp. It need not
apply simply to local enterprise lor
there are opportunities for several
such organizations. Such a syndicate ne.d not go into mining but
just developing prospects and we
believe there Is more sure money in
developing properties and then selling than in actual mining. At the
same time there is always a demand
for well developed prospects and
the English and American capitalists will pay all for such a property
that it is seen to be worth. Inmost
other B. C. and American mining
towns there are just such syndicates
and they do well for themselves and
lor the district by opening it up,
building up a town and advertising
and keeping things moving.
chance for the liberals to carry thc

When you are buy-
ng a FUR HAT,

If a retailer lias
loose labels in his
possession aud offers to put one in a

patroulxe him. He
h&a not any rtgnt.to navo loose labels. Loose
labels in retail stores are counterfeits. Do not
listen to any explanation as to why tbe hal
has no label. Tho Genuine Union Label is
perforated ou the four edges exactly the flame
as a postage stamp. Counterfeits ar�� sometimes perforated on threo of the ed_.es, and
sometimes only on two. Keep a sharp lookout
for the counterfeits. Unprincipled manufacturers are using thera in order to get rid of
their scab-made hats. The John B, Stetson

LARDEAU MINES, LTD.
The threo claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to ond, through which three leads pass the entiro length, situated at the head of Lexington creek, in the Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenay, British Columbia.
These three claims are located on the western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form one
complete portion of Mineral land of about 156 acres. Thoy lie east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
The group lies in the "Sitting Bull" and "Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in that district, and work
already done on apjacent extontlons has given most satisfactory
results as to extent of oro bodies and increased values with depth.
The formation is slate and 'schist, lying in an immense lime
dyke, and the croppings of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quart-, which gives assays from $3 up on tho
surface.
VEINS AND WORK DONE
Exploitation consists of two onon cuts along tho surface for a
distanco of twenty feot, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches in width. Tho valuo of this ore body was -.25.110
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet it has increased
to $-10.00. To tap this ore showing and tho massive iron capped
ledge close'to which it HeB tho present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distanco of 82 foet. Another 8.5 feot of nrosscutting
should roach this ledge at a deptii of about 125 feet. When 111 feet
had been driven, an alraost'solid body of iron ore throe feot thick
was encountered in the tunnel lying against a wall of slato. A
sample at this point assayed $77.00 in gold, silver, copper and lead.
The proporty has an excellent surface showing. The avorago
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tinuancy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence of the surface judging from other properties in the near
vicinity, some of which are on the same lead and havo developed
very rich ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that the Lardoau Minos are as good as
any, if not the best, in tho vicinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be mado dividend paying in a
short timo, and I would strongly recommend oxtenslve development
toward that end,
