ISSUING ADVERTISING MATTER
Deaoriptive, Neat, Comprehensive
and Well-Compiled Epitomes
Concerning the Province.
.V.
The staffs of the various provincial
gqvernment departments must be working over-time at Victoria these days.
Among the publications received by
the Eaole this week is the public accounts for tbe fiscal year ended June
30th, 1901; tbe thirteenth annual report
of the public schools of the province;
a neat, comprehensive and well-compiled epitome of retrospective and prospective conditions affecting the province, a splendid thing for circulation
ln  tbe outside world as advertising
matter.    This "general  review" is
labelled Bulletin No. 1, so we may look
for a continuance of the good work-
thanks to whoever brought the idea
into execution.    Another descriptive
pamphlet, profusely illustrated, sets
forth tbe agricultural capabilities of
certain portions of B. C, issued by tbe
department of agriculture.
The following Is dipped from Bulletin No. 1, concerning Lardeau mining
in 1801:
"The faot that 3,200 tons of ore, of
the gross value of nearly half a million
dollars, have been shipped out of 'the
Lardeou district, notwithstanding the
present excessive costs of transportation and treatment of from $30 to ISO a
ton, affords some idea of'the potental*
lties of this section of the province.
During the summer months a branoh
railway of the Canadian Pacific, following the course of tbe Lardeau river
from Kootenay lake to the foot of Trout
lake, was under construction, and when
this line is completed, as it is Uoged it
will be early in the spring, the development work prosecuted during 1$01 at
tbe mines will be rendered effective.
During the year all the iblder established properties have been able to increase their production, while new dis*
coveries, like the Triune, thanks to the
exceptionally high-grade character of
the orejwhich carries a value of 8201.
per ton), have also'assisted ln swelling
the districts output by entering the
shipping olass without the usual delay
incidental to quartz-mining development. The rlob free-milling geld orje
discoveries at Fish Creek, and silver
finds about Are miles west of Trent
Lake City, have also helped to attract
attention to this distriot, In whose
mines very considerable investments
of capital were made during tbe year."

A Proctor Tbat Preaohei.
Rev. S. J. Green's pulpit in Ferguson
last Sabbath afternoon waa occupied
by Rev. Dr. A. Whittington, superintendent of Methodist missions in B. C.
The reverend gentleman's discourse
was a treat to listen to.   It was full of
what one would call ideal Christianity,
a Christianity whieh appeals alike to
christian and sinner.   He said that a
man could not be a christian merely
by profession, bnt that the light of his
Christianity must be reflected in his
life.    He very much disapproved of
that class of so-called christians who
strive to serve God and Baal.'who
while tbey would like to point others
to and wiggle thru tbe golden' gate,
also kept their weather eye d-pen for
the main chance���who' pjaced the I
before their God.    This, he "felt, was
the cause of the Church's weakness
to-day.   He pointed out that a man
was his own best judge; while he
might deceive others he could not deceive himself, and if   he professed
ebrlstianity and at the same time was
connected witb shady dealings be must'
know that he was a guilty hypocrite.
Mr. Whittington also told the church
people bow to increase the strength of
the church.    Tbey must live lives of
christian love and charity; to make
the church such a home of peace, goodwill and unity that the worldly minded
would see and rever tbe beautiful light
of the love of Christ reflected from
within the church and become anxious
to enter into the fullness of such joy,
Contractor G. A. Carlson was in Nelson last Friday, and ln speaking to a
Miner reporter about business in the
Slocan he said there had beon a noticeable change lately for the better and
that hopes were high of a more sue*
cessful year than last. Each advance
of a fraction of a cent in the price of
lead, he said, brings comfort and joy to
tbe people of the Slocan.
In relation to the railway which Is
being extended into the Lardeau
country by the Canadian Pacific and on
whioh he and his associates havo a contraot, he stated that 200 men are now at
work and good progress is being made.
The train which used to run Into the

for some twenty odd miles has been
abandoned on account of the snow, and

The Sound Baals of Good Government.
We cannot expect a stable government ; we cannot expect to have political rest and contentment until justice
has been done to the people of important sections of the province by giving
tbem proportionate representation

that is done and their voice has been
beard thru a general election, we may
look forward to a period of political
stability and material prosperity.���

MINING HEN MAKE ENQUIRIES
With the Completion of the A. &
K. Railway Mining Maohinery
Will Be Introduoed.
How's This for Ore.
A remarkably rich shipment of silver
ore was recently received at the smelt*
er at Monterey, Mexico. The shipment
consisted of sixty tons, for- whioh $800,
000 was paid, or at the rate of 813,500
per ton. Tho ore came from the Pal.
millo mine in the Parral district. This
mine is owned by Pedro Alvarado, a
many times millionaire, wbo was but
a couple of years ago a poor peon,
Created Hera Powerful than Creators.
A oondltion which requires a province, with but six representatives ln a
house of over two hundred, to combat,
unaided, powerful corporate interests
for every concession it receives, is not
conducive to rapid development, says
tbe Tribune. It is this, condition which
threatens mors seriously than anything
else tbe successful issue of the present
demand for consideration for British
Columbia's mining aud smelting Industries.
Tbe winter has been a mild
one and the men have been able to
make nearly full time since the snow
began to fall. Up to October it was
difficult to secure first-class men, but
since that time there bave been more
men than could be given employment.
The bridges are nearly all finished and
there still remains a mile of filling
near the lake, and two miles of filling
near Tenderfoot creek and some finish,
ing touches here and there. The road
should be completed in six weeks at
the most.
Mr. Carlson says the road waB a hard
and expensive one'to build. The grubbing and clearing was costly as the
timber was heavy, and as there is considerable low ground a great deal of
filling had' to be done. There was not
much rook work. These difficulties
and tbe trouble experienced in getting
men capable of doing a good day's
work made the carrying out of the contract expensive.
Mr. Carlson says the road will open
one of the finest mining sections of
British Columbia. Considerable ore
will be shipped out of there this season,
aa development work in a number of.
properties has been in progress for a
long time,

Tbey Meed It. .
A few men who never would support
a newspaper friendly to th-*, ultimata
best interest* of the Lardeau, progressive legislation or organl-ftd labor,
want to start a paper In Ferguson. We
wish them success. Tbey need such a
newspaper. If they publish It them*
selves they will have to support it as
long as lt lasts and that could do no
harm, For the most part tbey are
amiable gentlemen who never have
paid a cent towards the support of a
newspaper that has susk time and
labor fighting the battles of the people
against the evil Influences at work ln the
community; tbey are the fellows who
religiously read and support the organs
of those who have no complaint to
make except against the few honest
newspapers that are published for the
common people. By all means let
these fellows have, a newspaper. They
need it.

The Eagle is iu receipt of no less

Just fancy, if you can, the child-like
simplicity of a man changing his smel*
ter location plans just because of the
utterances of any newspaper. Do you
think if a mining man like F. August
Heinze Intended to build a smelter in
Trout Lake the criticisms of the Topic
would alter hia plans?
The prohibition question is not a livo
issue in tbis camp, stud poker is on the
decline, the sun rises and sets as usual,
and ore shipments continue much the
same as in days gone by.
The Silvor Cup people have out
nearly 700 tons of the proposed 800-ton
output, and it is reported have also
struck a large new chute of ore in an
unexpected portion of the mine, which
if taken out will largely increase tho
output.
The Nettie L. people are continuing
development work and ore is now being rawhided down over the wagon
road. Work is being prosecuted on
the Black Warrior, Horseshoe, Beatrice, and a few individual properties,
but of course there can be very littlo
real activity expected for a couple of
months yet.
Silver and lead values are gradually
climbing back to tbe old figure, which,
to Lardeaultes, is "a thing of beauty
and a joy forever."
Tbe manager of a bie Slocan dividend-paying mine, has informed thc
Eaole that he intends to acquire
some mining interests in this camp as
soon as the snow disappears, and letters
from enquirers in every direction foretell an unusual season of development,
probably as a direct consequence of
the nearby completion of tbe A. & K.
railway.
Tbe EAOLE, too, has good authority
for believing that machinery for at least
one of our oldest mines has been
ordered and will arrive in Trout Lake
as soon as trains are operated between
Lardo and Gerrard. This marks a new
era in tho camp, an 9ra which has
long beon patiently awaited.
Following the introduction of maohinery and cheaper transportation
facilities we hare good reason to look
upon the bright side of Lardeau life.
There will bo moro labor employed,
more development, more sales of properties, more ore shipments, more business, and more changes in tbis camp
'luring tbe coming few months than
oven the most optimistic have looked
for, if the EAGLE Is any judge of coming events.

.''EKGUSON, I!. C, THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY 27, 1002.
The government must cease giving away our natural
resources. Let it retain and operate them in the interests of the province.
The province of British Columbia can never hope to
get out of debt, nor develop its natural resources until
its political "rulers" are succeeded by an industrial
government.
The difference between a privately-owned and operate -i "-"-I nnd ;i cnllecMvcIv-owned and operated trust
is that the profits go into the government treasury instead of into the pockets of men who are already spoiling with wealth.
Kootenay labor unions are showing; their wisdom.
They are one and all going into politics. The ballot is
lie place, gentlemen, to do the trick. Make the right
:se of that one minute of voting liberty accorded you
and one single election more will place the balance of
,-iower in your hands.    Then use it.
A representative of the Vancouver Independent is
making a tour thru the lower country. As a result of
':is observations in the Slocan he writes:
"The province needs badly a government owned refinery as well as a lead factory. Then where now only
a few hundred men would be employed, there would be
many thousands, the province would go forward with
leaps and bounds, and people who now are loud in their
praises of the Klondike and Horse Fly would gradually
drop out of sight. It is a crying shame the way this
splendid district is handicapped."
The same words could be applied to the Lardeau
with equal force.
An economic system ol collective-ownership and
management of the means of production and distribution would do much to lessen the number of upstart'
and snobs, who occasionally hob up importantly and
endeavor to demons!rale to an ever-bowing public thai
they are the only living creatures this far north. A
iittle sudden money, and a cranium full of ignorance,
does much to annoy ,-iny community burdened hy this
particular species of human kind. When our government is so constituted that all profits, interest and rent,
$,'oes into the public treasury snohocracy will largely
cease to exist, and after a few years of education, and
.quality ot opportunities, the folks will probably be as
-food as the people.
Because the editor of the Eagle happens to be a
Socialist, and doesn't care particularly who knows it,
he appears to be made a mark by a few newspapers,
and men who differ with his convictions. The Eagle
grants every man a right to his opinion, but we insist
on being accorded the same inalienable privilege. Just
because the Eagle said that Joseph Martin's platform
"contained enuf Socialism to make it vote-catching
and enuf vagueness to leave plenty of loopholes,"
which is a statement of fact, the Topic trumps up thai
old "motive" insinuation.
If the Trout Lake Topic, or any body else, can prove
one single instance of where the Eagle ever "sold" a
line of its space other than that which is devoted tr>
commercial advertising, we will make them a present
of our business as a going concern and walk out of
camp like an U. S. parson. The Eagle has never
been "bought," nor can it be bought so long as it remains under the present management. The Eagle is
in business for the same reason as any body else���to
make enul money to keep the sheriff at arm's length
and allow the staff to feed upon something other than
sweet remembrances, prunes and snow water. But
there is no man living who can truthfully point to a
single instance of where we have' made money dishonestly���or for that matter any other old way. The
Kagle objects to the Topic throwing out base insinuations as to our "motives," simply because we get dpi
and rustle for business while our friend roasts his shins
by the fireside. The Eagle asks no man for his sympathy or money; but we do demand a fair deal. Will
the Topic kindly cut the cards?
The Eagle has no desire whatever to prolong the
local discussion concerning the inflated prices of certain mining stocks. We have had our say, and no man,
not even one, has stepped forward to say that we
uttered an untruth, or asked other than fair questions.
Our columns have been open, free of charge, to the
reverend promoters in question, but no refutations or
explanations have teen made. We have endeavored
lo be fair. Our interests are all in this town and camp,
and naturally enuf we want to safeguard 'them against
a repetition of the earlier history of the' Kootenays.
There is not a minister of the gospel in British Columbia who will endorse the methods of those whom we
have pointed out. But for having done so the Eagle
must suffer a boycott at the hands of a few who seem
to think the future of this camp depends on a few of
Uncle Sam's parsons. This we are prepared to do,
and the chances are the Eagle will still be doing business at the old stand when they are gone and forgotten,
iho the ill effects of their having been here may injure
this camp until such times as the din and busy whirl of
prosperity will have forced it into oblivion���a day not
l.-ir distant we feel certain.
Thc Lardeau's mineral resources will win out indue
time.   The completion of the railway, the  reductions
in fuel, transportation and smelting rates, the gradual
raise in the metal market, and the consequent influx of
practical mining men and investors indicates the future
of this district. The' Lardeau is all right.;, The men
who have stayed by it thru thick and thin are made of
the right kind of clay, and in six months from now
many pf our old-time associates, while blowing rings
of smoke irom line Havanas in their cushloned-offices,
will, in a reminiscent mood, look tyick to the little incidence which is now given a place in their minds because there is nothing much else to spend the long
winter evenings chewing the rag about.
A Baltimore clergyman in a recent sermon endorsed
the union label in the following eloquent words, says
the Canterbury Outcrop:
"What can be more sacred, more holy or more deserving of the reverence of men or the angels than the
union label, which signifies that human life has been
more highly valued in the production of human commodities than mere profit sought for by greed?"
"The label is an emblem of justice, of fraternity, of
humanity. When you find a label on a garment or a
box of cigars, or a loaf ot bread, or a piece of printing, you can be sure that neither was made in a sweat
shop, that no little children's fingers were compelled to
sew, or sort tobacco in the hours of night intended for
childish sleep. When you see this label on any commodity, you can buy it with a clear conscience, knowing that in doing so you are not becoming a partner to
nn institution that degrades humanity to private profit.
You can sleep soundly, also and not be worried with
thoughts of typhus, fever, smallpox, leprosy, which are
so olten scattered broadcast from Chinese opium joints,
penitentiary convicts' cells and tenement sweat shops,
where (he most degraded specimens of humanity put
their life's blood into marketable goods, from which
the poor unsuspecting public suffers'all manner of foul
and loathsome diseases.
"The union label is a religious emblem. It is a
religious act to buy goods to which this label is attached���an act blessed on earth and honored in heaven,
while it is a sin to buy a cigar, a piece of clothing, a
pair of shoes, or a loaf of bread, without this label,
for then you do not know but what you are building up
the business of some heartless tyrant, who is extracting a fortune from the drudgery and degradation of his
fellows, at a risk of public health.
"God bless the label! And I hope that all of you,
as you leave here tonight, will carry indelibly impressed
upon your minds the picture of the union label, surrounded by angels, and that you will always know that
the favorite banner in heaven presents justice to labor,
fresh air and sunshine, and healthful conditions to those
who toil, and the truth that human life is of gold."
The Eagle has just found in the Calgary Herald,
the editor of which is interested in Lardeau mining, an
experience of striking similiarity with the combination
ol circumstances which it has been our lot to face for
ihe past few weeks. And the arguments the Herald
outs forward in defense of its position apply with a
refreshing degree of truthfulness to the contentions and
position of the Eagle..
The Herald says: "A few days ago the Herald had
occasion to refer to a form of social perversity * *
"In touching upon such delicate gronnd we cast aside
fear or favor and endeavored, in the best way known
to us to discharge what we considered to be our duty
as a public newspaper.' If the Herald wished to blow
.1 fanfare for itself we might enlarge at great length
upon the number of responsible and prominent citizens
who have called at the office and tendered their congratulations upon our outspoken treatment of a flagrant evil, and thc letters couched in a similar strain
which have come to us thru the mail. We are not in
the puffing business however, and having neither friend
to serve nor enemy to chastise we refuse to believe that
our utterances require justification,
"The principle generally laid down by "men of the
world" is that although 0 crying evil may exist, may
even be eating the roots out of society, a newspaper
which however unworthy it may be tries to discharge
its functions, should remain silent; recreant to every
precept of decent journalism. ��
"A newspaper can do a great deal to prevent the
public flaunting ol undesirable relations and thus remove a good deal of the example which keeps pernicious practices alive.
"It is neither an attack of dyspepsia nor a desire
for spicy paragraphs that gave rise to the article in
question. It tvas to our sorrow existing conditions
that called it forth, Our readers have but to consult a
few representative citizens to see whether it was justified or not.
"In saying this wc are pleading no extenuation, we
take nothing back and have no apologies to make. We
attacked a social evil that required redress and in so
doing our position is unimpeachable. The task is not
a pleasant one, but that is no reason why we should
shrink from it.
"The matter is grave and the flippant tone adopted
by a correspondent is characteristic of the view taken
by a certain section of the people, of a social perversity
that feeds on sordidness and has only tragedy for its
atonement. ,
"To minimize and pass by with a tolerant laugh,
perhaps, the worst evil with which a community can be
cursed, is���to employ the classic precedent suggested
by our correspondent's Lajinity���on a par with Nero's
Addling while Rope was burning.     .
"A correspondent says: 'The press can do nothing in the direction of influencing public morality.' We
beg to differ most distinctly wilh him. In this particular instance we intend making a jolly good try at it,
Sheridan, a gentleman of some repute in his day, was of
the opinion that the press could overturn a tyrant king,
a hostile house of lords and a corrupt house of commons; and it it could successfully run up against such
a combine it is a little strange if it could not do something in the way of making people who were misbehaving ashamed of themselves." .'

This would be a better world if

Steele Prospector.
Collective.Ownership Will Change It All.
Laborers use tools they do not own;
capitalists own tools they do not use.
t Laborers produce wealth tbey do not
own; capitalists own wealth they have
hot produced.
Laborers toll and make capitalists
rich; capitalists remain idle and keep
laborers poor,
this is the case we are certainly de;,. Labor is exploited; capitalists are ex-
generating.   What is ambition?  True
ambition is a longing to excel���not financially as some people seem to think
���but morally, socially, physically, and
in i, general way for the betterment of
mankind.   It is the fear of to-morrow
that makes tbe first aim of life consist
of trying to get the bettor of our fellow creatures by fair means or foul in
the struggle of life, and the habit
grows to such an extent that a man
sinks to a depth at which hia sole ambition is to hoard up wealth at some
one's expense.   It is generally believed
that those who bavn.accumulated large
fortunes in a life time were men above
the average intelligence.   Now for the
saic** of argument, suppose we admit
this tribute to this class of men. Would
it not have been a grander, and nobler
incentive     had    these     intellectual
"giants" used these great intellects in
improving mankind generally, rather
than in the selfish individual one-man
manner wblch tbe world seems to admire and bold up as an examnle to our
youth.   If this is the ambition that we
should admire, then heaven- help our
future   One of Socialism's principal
aims Is to teach us to think less of
ourselves directly and more of each
other, so that we may never think tbat
the earth was meant only for our Individual selves,   Under existing conditions there are two arguments that can
be given as shewing that talents or incentives are not cultivated to their
fullest extent.    First,  poverty often
prevents a talent being developed or
an incentive being pursued; and secondly, when men make a change from
abject poverty to luxurious comforts
through a talent it is Inclined to Induce
them to "lay on their oars" so tn speak
aud resign themselves to ease and com
fort, thus stopping the further development, which under a more equitable
economic system might have been attained.   In fact being too rich Is as injurious to true ambition as being too
poor.   Of course there are exceptions
to three arguments, but on the whole
they will be  found correct.    Then
again, under Sooialism all would receive credit for what they actually produced in whatever capacity they happened to be occupied, thus creating an
incentive to excel which would' eventually bring the whole people to a
greater state of efficiency in the general
standard of tbe whole world.   These
may 'not be very strongly put arguments, but tbey are only a drop in the
bucket to the many arguments which
can be produced In favor of the coming
great social system,

Laborers form a political party for

Laborers are those who earn an

Socialism is a simple yet comprehensive means for the improvement of the
conditions and character of men. In
terms of economics Socialism Is the
public ownership of all natural resources and public utilities, and the
common operation of all industries for

private ownership Of the means of production and distribution, whieh is indirect ownership of men; and to our
wage system which robs men of a large
part of the product of their labor.
