82.00 A YEAR.
A Bather Overdrawn Account, But
Much of it is True.
NOT ALL COLD THAT GLITTERS
THE   MINING   ARENA
A Life Full of Adventure, Hope,
Constant   Expectancy,   Many
Difficulties, Hard Work, and
Too Often No Remuneration for the Labor.
"If a man loves adventure," says
Will SparitB in Ainslee's, "he will
find nothing that will satisfy his passion so much as a life of mining nnd
prospecting, 't'he prospector Is the
adventurer par excellence of the
Kockles. From tho moment ho Btarts
upon his career in the mountains,
leaving behind him tbo collection of
colorless and wind beaton shanties,
known as 'the city,' adventures greet
him ut every turn. As ho picks his
way through a wildei ness of rocks and
fallen trees, having left tho meagre
trail far behind, ever on the lookout
for tho faintest sign of the outcropping
of the precious metal, his passage is
almost sure to be disputed by wild
beasts. But what an excitement there
is in seeking for gold! It is stronger
and mure intense than tbat of the
gambler at tho green table staking his
last dollar on thc turn of a card. The
prospector may bo penniless, ho may
have put bis last con t into, the'grub'
that la now fastened onto tlio buck of
his burro; yet one stroke of his pick
is likely to unoouver treasure that will
transform him into a millionaire. Ho
ait.! down to a raongi'( men';, cooked
over a ruuc lire Between a lew ..tonus,
but all tho time about him feels the
presence of gold. Perhaps iiis fire is
built on tho end of a lotlgo that is
'ohookfull' of gold! perhaps ho is sitting on v. rich outcropping that is
simply covered with small stones; perhaps tbere is gold beneath tbo big tree
just across tbo ravin. Goldlnay be
ovefywBore, if he can just. Und it.
Surely his luck is not losss than other
men's.
"And so ho goes on, scaling thc
loftiest peaks, where snow llos all the
year around, and even his heavy
blankets arc not enough do keep him
warm nt night, diving into all sorts of
ci.vorus and rifts in tbe rocks, exploring tlio caves, only perhaps to be
chased out by tho wild beast oee*upants,
braving & thousand dangers that he
may lind tho moans of passing tho rest
of his days in naso.
''And how does it all ond? Tn most
cases tho daring prospector who sets
out alone mods his death miles anil
miles away from any human boing.
How, nobody over knows. His bones
may never bo found. Ho disappears
as completely as last winter's snow.
"But should tlio prospector striko it
rich, his adventures will go on ns long
as ho remains in tho Kooky mountains.
If his lind is worth anything as a
poor man's claim, hu will put up a
cabin ami go to digging, concealing
what gold ho may take out in a place
lecrct to hlmsolf. But ho will havo to
guard it all tho time, for covetuous
minors who are not so fortunate would
not hesitate to take bis life if they
could get possession of his little pilo of
yellow metal. His rillo must be his
constant companion, and he must bo
ready to use it at the first sign. At
night he must sleep with one eye open.
If a stranger approaches the cabin he
must ho ready to dispute hi3 right to
be there. The low years a man may
put in nt this kind of life is most wearing, and, should tho prospector conquer all risk nnd get back to hisnativo
town with a 'pile' his friends will look
upon him as an old man, though he be
still under 40. Only the unknowing
oues will envy his fortune.
The man who works in the develop-
od mines is also having adventurous
experiences all the time. The tunnels,
shafts and drifts are liable at any mom'
ent to cavo in and bury the worker
under tons of rock. Or perhaps they
may bo imprisoned without food or
water, and pass many days of horrible
suffering in darkness and silence.
Some    Details    of
the Comstock Group
And Other   General
News   of Lardeau
Somo woeks ago the Eagle gave its
readers some idea of the Comstock
group, up the north fork. Slnco then
a report written by S. Shannon, B. A.,
of this place, has reached us and as it
enters more into details wo publish it
in full.   Mr. Shannon says;
"The group consists of two full sized
mineral claims, viz: "Comstock" and
"Silver Bullion" staked along the
same location lino and covering an
area of approximately 100 acres.
As shown by the accompanying
sketch-map, the property is most
advantageously situated, since it
adjoins Ciiole City townsito on the
north side, and slopes quite precipitately eastward towards Galona creek
and westward quite gradually towards
tho north fork of Lardeau crook, the
Comstock claim being on the eastern,
and the Silver Bullion on the western
slopo.
Tho property is only 7i miles distant
from Ferguson, and an excellent pack
trail on wagon road grade leads from
Ferguson to Circle City, a distance of
7 miles, which trail continues up tho
north fork and across tlio Silver Bui
lion, but. along Galena creek to tlie
point on tim Comstock claim from
whieh tho development work will he
prosecuted) it trail, not mora than half
a mile in length will have to bo made.
trouble   since   tho   elevation   to bo
attained is not moro than 200 feet.
Tho country rock in this belt consists almost entirely of a thin bedded
taloose schist, with strata of lime running through it at varying intervals.
It is along thoso strata of lime that the
mineral occurrs throughout this entire
belt. There appears to be but tho one
band of lime running through this
property, and it varies in width from
10 feot to -10 feet as seen by its outcrop.
On either side of this bolt of lime, i. o.
in tho contact between tho lime and
tlio schist, is found quartz, well mineralized with coppor pyrites and galena.
To quite an extent tho copper pyrites
seems to stay with tho footwall of tlio
lime ami tho galena with tlio hanging
wall, hut this does not hold throughout,
as the minerals are found together and
on either wall of lime.
Tho trend of tho formation hero is
northwest and southeast, and tho
Strata dip towards the northeast.
On tho Galona creek slopo tho formation is fairly woll exposed, and it is
there that somo development work has
boon dime. This work consists of throe
open cuts of rather modest demonsiuus
but In eneh of them very fair showln,
of ore aro exposed. No 1 open cut is
well down tho slopo near the crook and
shows up mostly copper pyrites; No. 2
Is about .'100 foot up tlio slope from No.
1, and is along tjjo hanging wall of tho
lime, It shows up considerable galona,
also some copper pyrites. No. ,'1 pros'
pent pit Is about 200 foet from No. 2,
and oxposos both copper pyrites and
galena,
Quite a depth of wash covers the
Silver Bullion claim and no development work has been done on it, but,
across alio north fork on the Sunset
group, this same lead is exposed at
intervals all up tho slope, and somo
very fine showings of ore, like In
nature to that on tho Comstock, aro
there found. Also on the Richmond
claim, across Galena creek from the
Comstock, there is rather a line showing of both galena and copper pyrites.
The load is locally known as lhe
Hunter and Trapper, and is traceable
and well mineralized throughout the
length of eight claims in this section.
On the divide between the north fork
and Pool creek it seems tojbo capped
ovor, but appears again from Pool
creek to Fish creek, and thero also
somo fine showings of oro are found on
lt.   It parallels, and is situated about
midway between the Black Bear lead
and tlio Horn lead.
From samples broken from off the
ledgo by myself, I obtained the following assays:
(1) Galena-gold $3.33; silver 34.5
ozs.; lead 57 per cent.
(2) Copper pyrites���gold $0.07; silver 0 ozs.; copper 20 per cent.
(3) Galona and copper pyrites���gold
$8.00: Silver 10 ozs.; Lead.85 per cent,
and copper 9 per cent.
Estimating silver at 00 cenls per oz.,
lead at $4.25 per cwt. and copper at
$16.50 per cwt., these samples would
indicate ore in all values worth $72 48;
$97.87 and $80.50 per tbrnrespeotively.
These assays aro from samples of
fairly clean oro. The persistency of
the gold values here Is very encouraging, and Is characteristic of this lead,
for I havo also sampled the Sunset
group, and the Richmond, and found
that tho ore ou them likewise contained very good gold values.
There is evory facility offered for
developing die property at a minimum
cost, for the ledge can be driven oi
from the start, proven u-- work pre
grasses, and for 800 ft, or thereabout
each font driven in tin. tunnel will
give one foot additional lu backs overhead. Abundance of tirrber suitable
for nil purposes will be < mvonlontto
tho workings, and any ainennt of
water'-""', r amy be fifjfiited from
either Galena 6 'sek or tlio   eorth fork.
As thc slopo is froo from enowslides,
the property may bo worked in perfect
safety all the year around.
Of course, ns yet the property is only
a prospeot, but the character ot the
ore, tho continuity of tho lodge, tho
position of thu property and the facilities for working it, all place it above
the average prospect nnd make ito
desirable proposition for Iho investment of a moderate amount of capital,
whieh if properly used, has fair
chances of developing'this prospect
into a mine."
A company has boon formed to com.
monce development work upnn the
above property next season, they having acquired  the group somo weeks
their fathers now possessed. Tlie proceedings were closed by .Miss Mc-
Naughton presenting each of ihe pupils
with a handsome Christmas card.

PULLTNG   FOB   THE  LARDEAU.
RA1LWAY_NEWS
Reported That Work Has Begun
on the Wharf and Slip.
The Almost Immediate Construction of Lardeau's Railway
Seems Certain.���The Proved "
Mines of This Camp Can
Soon Start Shipping.
No new developments havo corac
to light in regard to Lardeau's railway during the past week. The writer
was informed a few days ajro, upon
what should bo reliable authority.
that the C.P.R. were already building a wharf and putting in a slip" at
the foot of Kootenay lake, thus taking advantage of low water at thi*o
timo of year. This along with thu
news that a contract for 00,000 ties has
boen let is fair evidence that tho company mean business noxt spring.
From this it would appear that construction work was to be begun at the
southern end, but as the rails are to
bo stored at Arrowhead tbe company
must intend to work from both end**.
It matters very little whether the
road is completed from Kootenay lako
to Arrowhead or not, so long as they
tap the district at any point. Wore
they to stop at tho foot nf Trout lake
and put scows on to run from this on.
it would necessitate the working of
thirty or forty four-hor3e teams
between hero nnd the lake, which
would bo very beneficial to Ferguson
from a financial point nf view. The
mines are hore and the ore must come
down the hill, so tho country is safe.

TEAT MINERAL TAX
After due consideration, and with
norne hesitation, the Eagle has
arrived at the conclusion that the provincial tax of two per cent, on the net
proceeds derived from the ore output
of the metaliferious mines of this pro-
viHce, is an unjust tax and a tax which
will.hurt the Lardeau more than might
he thought.
-.. The way the Eagle has sized the
v tattler up is this: Some lew years
ago here was a district lying dormant,
unproved, and from which the provincial government did not receive one
cent of revenue. Along came the prospector, found the Indication of mineral,
and ultimately, with assistance of
more private<capital,developed to some
extent properties here and there and
created a revenue for the government.
People came in. The sale of miners'
licenses, traders' licenses, freighter
and packers' licenses, liquor licenses,
rr/iinc -lompanies' licenses,,. poll tax,
recording fe.es, etc., followed." Farmers
took up land a',-,a various industries
ate built iip,a,,Voontributing taxes to
the gov,Srnmont.
Now, it must be admitted that had it
not been for the prospoctor.perhaps now
the mine owner, the government would
���till be getting no revenue from these
hundreds of sources. But what has
the government done? The very
minute these same men who create all
the revenue, commence to ship a little
ore In an endeavor to get the
thousands of dollars they hava already
spent tn development work, back, along
comes tho government and demands a
uoond tax of two per cent., a first-
rate dividend in itself.
Who ever heard of a government
taking a per cent, of the sale price of a
steer? The steer owner may pay taxes
on the land npon which the steer was
raised, hut the other is too nonsensical
to take seriously, was the law not
actually in vogue in this province at
the present time.
If a property Is worth $60,000, tax it
���n that basis; if it Is  not  worth two
i  hits, being undeveloped  and waiting
for capital, then leave it alone until lt
l�� worth something.
Ood "knows this country Is taxed
enough (for a non-government owner
ship government), especially the industry which most concerns our present
and future welfare. And the govern'
ment .may as well make up its mind
frstas last, to rescind this unjust two
percent, mineral tax, since all the
revenue 'derived by the government is
almost directly contributed by the
mine operators in the first place If
tha tax It not applied on the actual-
worth-ofthe-property basis there will
probably be more trouble ln the air, as
nuchas we hate to talk about it.
Where the government does and will
���ot develop Its own resouroes, then
the Eaole contends that when private
persons or companies develop a country, which was lying a non-revenue
payer into a big revenue payer, the
���aid persona or 'companies jshould not

Judging by the present state of tho
channel leading from Thomson's Landing proper to deep- water landing, very
little dredging woud have to bo done to

It is a matter which should be drawn
to the attention of our new member
Mr. Galliher.
Many corporations do not allow
their employees to become members
of any local organization. Suppose
their men should say, "We refuse to
allow you to join any employers' association." Would the employers be
indignant? No, they would only be
amused. And yet one demand is as
unjustifiable as the other,
A rancher in Arizona lately informed
all whom it concerned by moans of a
notice posted on a cotton wood tree
that: "My wife Sarah has left ray

her, and I want it distinkly understood that any Man as takes her in
aud Keers for her on ray account will
get himself Pumped so full of lead that
some tenderfoot will locate hlra for a
mineral claim. A word to the wise is
sufficient and orter work on fools."

"I wouldn't mind going to South

There is probably not half a dozen
youngsters in this province, over five
years of age, who take any stock in the
Santa Claus feature. Superstitions of
more than one kind are dying out with
the close of the century.
If the Eaole is rightly informed the
Baptist church refuses to be exempted
from taxation. It will only be a
matter of time until all the- churches
will either pay taxes, like other business institutions, or go out of business.

On November 1st a law went into
effect in Ontario which provides for
the taxation of corporations doing
business in that province under other
than provincial characters. The tax
will amount to $100 per annum on most
companies, but where the capital stock
Is very largean additional sum will be
charged. In' some special cases the
tax may be reduced to $50. Brokers
representing outside companies will be
liablo to regular tax. Travellers are
exempt.
Many a mother in tbe east has been
disappointed this week because she did
not receive a letter from ber boy in the
west. A letter is a little inexpensive
article,'but the joy it run produce in
the heart of a mother, old and gray,

mother's love is the purest and noblest
blessing on earth, and a son who would
not occasionally feud It with a letter is
short on the higher qualities of manhood.���New Denver Ledge.

That tlio Lardoau district has unbounded mineral
resources no well Informed person will deny.
The Lardeau district is on the eve of a new era,
brought about by the wonderful developments, finds and
strikes made thus season; along with the fact that the
construction of a railway by tho C. P, R. is absolutely
certain for early next season.
Tho large ore shipments being made this winter in
spite of the fact that transportation and treatment costs
approximately $37 per ton, indicates the high grade
nature of our ores.
With cheap transportation next season, when Lardeau's acres of low and medium grade ore uan be treated
profitably, tbe possibilities aro astounding.
The attention of outside investors has already been
arrested and hundreds are now making arrangements to
operate in this district after the early spring���in fact
some of them are here now, securing bonds, looking for
and finding ground-floor propositions.
No district in Canada today offers better inducements
for the investor than this one. The mining business Is
no monopoly. Tbe poor man has even chances, at least
more so than iu other lines. When he finds a Triune ho
doesn't have to sell. What other occupation in life can
a man follow where his chances with a wealthy competitor are less diminished than in prospecting and mining?
' "Thore is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at
" the flood, leads on to fortune." It may not be your lot to
��� make a fortune, but if ever there was an opportunity In a
mining camp, the Lardeau offers it today. Don't wait
until the railway comes; for then the prospector is not in
the same need of money, to enable him to hang on.
If you have money to invest now is the time to investigate. Come straight to Ferguson; you will find men hore
who have properties to sell; in faot FerguBon is tho home,
the meeting place for prospectors and investors. Tlio
owners, as a rule, will be found most reasonable and
always ready to give you Information, cheerfully escort
you to their properties, and otherwise interest you in
their interests. We bave the mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you come in and help us
and thus help yourself?

TO-DAY ANW TO-MORROW.
United Rate of North America
Take Christ in all in  all  he  was a
great man.   Wo ought at least to study
his teaching as we study the teachings
of   any other great  thinkers.    Bis
teaching had and has its lessons for
to-day and to-morrow, for tbe future
and for tbo present.     His revelation
or teaching about heaven was u truth
that largely lifted the mind  off the
present and lixed it on the future This
was a great truth,  giving birth us it
does to a purifying,  an  enobllng and
Inspiring hope.    Life without it would
be miserable poor and wretched. Every
man who has it must be the braver and
the nobler.   Tbo trouble has been that
many has mado everything of heaven
and nothing of earth,  everything of
to-morrow and nothing of today.   This
toaoher, while ho undoubtedly directs
our thoughts, to what will be; yet he
as strongly, if not more strongly, calls
attention to  what is.    It was only
ocoasslooally that  he drew the veil
aside, and revealed the future, he was
always insisting upon the value of today, and the present.    In that healthful sermon, called the Sermon on the
I' Mount���a sermon that is being read
more eagerly and more reverently today than ever before���ono of his most
impressive lessons is "Tako no thought
for to-morrow."     Has  it ever struck
tbe  reader of that sentence  that it
implies one ought to have a deep,
serious thought about to-day.     If we
are not to be over anxious about tomorrow of what is ahead of us, we
ought to be thoroughly anxious about
to-day. or the things whioh are.   If
to-morrow is not to bother us, it means
that we should wrestle with tbe things
of to-day; for the only way, in which
tbe to-morrow of life can have no care
for us, is by making the conditions of
life to-day  what  they  ought  to be.
. Christ* was a great believer of to-day.
The future did not trouble Him much;
the present did.   Work, He says, while
it is called day, tbat is, preaoh, teach,
perform, change, comfort, help, all today.    The needs  of humanity were
staring him in the face to-day, and today, not to-morrow, He must do His
duty.  Oh, it is to day that we should
be most anxious about.    What is it
that causes so many men aud women
to havo painfully    anxious thoughts
about to-morrow?    It is' because the
j, to-day of their lives is all wprang.   If
V .you aro out of employment to-day; if
your money Is all spent to-day; if tho
needs of wife and children cry out today; if you are-bard pressed, and are
it, In deep distress to-day, can you look at
to-morrow   without fear and trembl
ing?    It is becauso then we are in
straits, difficulties, and penury to-day,
that to-morrow is enabled to intrude
Itself in ugly black shapes, to load us
witb intolerable burdens, and to fill us
with dark forbodings. In a true sense, today is everything, and a responsibility
is laid upon us to make to-day right,
and to make it liveable.  Our work is
to sweep away  all wrongs and injustices which may exist to-day.   Our
duty is to get what is needful for today; to have a fair, honest share of
God's free gifts to man as that tomorrow's shadow when it comes will
be one of hope and good cheer to us.
For if we are getting to-day  what we
ought, thon to-morrow will have   no
fears for us, in fact, we shall  welcome
it as n good gift sent from  Heaven to
bless us and do us good.   What  Is  to-
morror, but a part of  to-day.    Tho
future Is but a  link   of tbo  present.
They are indissolubly connected.   Vou
cannot by any   device   separate them.
II thon our industrial  conditions   bo
unjust, unfair and   dishonest,  to-morrow, uploss  wo  arc   wiso  to   sweop
tbem away to-day, will ever be full of
worries, cares and anxieties to tbe roan
who Is,  loaded  with   responsibilities.
Our industrial salvation to morrow depends upon us doing  our duty to-day
with.all our minds  and  with  all  our
- hearts.���Vancouver Independent.
