mention shacks, stables and outbuildings. And tbe assessment roll will
show very clearly thn large amount of
personal property brought in during
tho yoar. No other town in North
Kootenay has made such pogross,
Ami these town improvements only

.T. M. Cameron, one of the provincial
organizers for the Socialist party, is
meeting with a good deal of success In
the lower country. The Slocan City
league was i'e-organlzed and placed
under tho jurisdiction of the provincial
executive. Locals wero organized at
Silverton on the 23rd ult., at New Denver on tho 24th, at Sandon on the26th,
and at Kaslo on the 27th, while at Nol-
son tlio movement is already well
organized with over 110 active members.
The Slocan City local has 56 members,
among whom are many good speakers,
Thruout the Slocan a most enthusiastic

who organized tho Socialists there this

of evtiry Socialist, and ;fet worked so
quietly that the nomination of tho
Socialist ticket after the closo of

surprise to tbe old parties. It is
probable that tbe showings made by the
Socialists will give them considerable
prominence in Stevens country politics
next year.

san's smelter," further particulars of
which may ho seen In another colnmn.
Tho Nettie L. poople are still raising
from the lower wokings, and a good
deal of ore not figured on heretofore
bas been encountered. It i'a just possible that this mine wilj keep the
Vulcan furnaco in operation as soon a
it is ready for tire. ThoCup lias nearly
.100 tons of ore out, a part of which is
uow blockading tho EAGLE'S "front

looks as if u refinery would soon ho

Kootenay line, the Atlin inilwuy and

The only reason why the Liberal

to tho C.P.R." was because they wero
not in'power. Beth the old political

One of tho most important events iu
the history of this camp, and Ferguson
in particular, Is soon to materialize,
N. C, Wood of Minneapolis, represent-
Chas. VV. McCrossan. has arrived
in town, to make ready for the reception of the Vulcan furnace plant which
is now on the way from Pan Francisco
to this place. Tho smelter will be
built on the Daney addition, just- east
of R. Foran's residence, overlooking
thn hanks of Iho north fork of Lardeau
creek, only some S00 yards from tho
business  centre  of  tho    town.    The 1
dec for lumber for tho building was
placed with the local saw mill on Mon-1
day evening. The plans call for a i
building 35x50, two stories high. A \
wagon road up the bill to the high side
of tho smelter will also be built. The
work will be (lono by day lubor. Mr
Wood oxpe-ts to see the plant ii

The Revelstoke Herald and Rail-
���.vny Men's Journal is the name of
.. newspaper
in Revelstoke. Tho
purporting; to voice the sentiments.'the clays
and further the cause of the union
rnilwiiymeii, and the country in
particular, it does not even carry
ihe emblem of the typographical
union. At times the Herald throws
out enuf socialist matter to create
the beliet that it stands for progressive government ; tlie next
issue is devoted to Ihe shortcomings
of the Liberal party, while ;t following issue tells us how dead to thc
world the Conservative parly is.
Tlie Herald admits al every turn
I lhat the present system of government is Inr from what it should he.
It knows too well that the "growing time" and "prosperity" is confined to Ihe men who own tbe
means of production. And Ihe
Herald must, if it be honest,
acknowledge that "protection"
spells profit, not wages. But with
all this the Herald cannot break
away from Ihe blind hope of expecting either of the old parlies to
change an unjust ecooomic svstem
which is rapidly placing the operators of lhe means of production at
the mercy of those win, own them.
The Herald atlmiis time and again
lhat socialist theories are sound, in
principle, hut makes the assertion
that the skies will fall before these
theories and principles are put into
practice. Tbe editor sits blindly,
flashing the "copy" of old at so
much per bosh, and more than
likely is eking out u hand to mouth
existence, witb no assurance of the
morrow o'her than that someone
may die off and leave him enuf to
become one o( the owners of tlie
moans of production. In the meantime tbe consolidation of capitalistic
J interests goes merrily on. ' The
��� trusts grow fewer and more po.ver-
Iful. The trust shareholders levy
tribute on those outside of the
krust. Wage-earners are given a
Ismail share of what they produce.
jTrades-unions are organized and a
(constant fight is kept up for a larger
share of what they produce. But
the trust is crushing these labor
organizations. The trust cannot be
handled by legislation. They cannot he broken. Nor .should they
be. They are proving conclusively
'hat co-operation, wilh no commercial competition, lessens the cost
of production and benefits those
who arc in the trust. The editor of
:he Herald need not worry about
socialism not coming. It is already
| lere ; hut so far it has only been
extended to and enjoyed hy a few
elfish      socialists���trust      share-
!iolders. Socialism is coming much
juicker than the people are being
nade ready for its general adoption.
The duties and responsibilities of
he press and pulpit is to educate
he masses to such an extent th.it
hey may, know how to accept Ihe
esponsibiiity of I urn ing our present-
lay political government into an
ndustriill government. Ridicule
nd  slander will  not  stop the on-
(rard march of socialism���the trusts
nvned by lhe people. It is no sublet for jesting. The duty of every
rue citizen should be to protect and
ro'motcjhc welfare of his fellow-
len nnil' cotinlry, Socialism is
levilnble. Conditions already
xistent  must  he  iriet.     And   the
tiltpr of the Herald need not think ___
ir n single moment lhat socialism fiod-given
I always be "coming." I,et him
���>ok to Germany, let him size up
lirbtilent France, and then follow
te wonderful social and commercial
���olutidn in Great Britain and the
nited Slates, not to mention our
;vn Dominion at all. We have
dual records of over nine million
icialist voters ill these countries,
pch election  gives  victory alter)
victory to the socialists. Socialism
is not a class movement. It is
broad enuf, and fair, and good enuf
for all. It means a death blow to
politics and politicians, and a
system whicli creates classes and
allows one set ol men to own the
means of existence ot another. The
times of panics caused by over-production will soon cease, for the
producers intend to turn political
government into industrial government. If the trusts are good for
those within Iheir ranks, the sooner
the ranks means all the people the
better. The profits of the trusts
will then benefit all the people.
Laugh and scoff as you will, these
things are already undergoing
evolution. The ox at one time
took the place of the man; the horse
took the place of ihe ox ; steam is
taking the place ot the horse, and
electricity will, in the end, entirely
displace steam. In the days of the
sell-binder, the trolley car, the perfecting press, tlie phonograph and
other modern wonders at the sight
of which our forefathers would fall
dead, why should an economic
system survive that dates back to
of Abraham and the
Pharaohs ? Nor can it survive.
The people have already tasted of
the fruits of intelligence, and the
educative campaign of the socialists
cannot fail in its purpose. "Go
way back and sit down" Mr. editor
of the Herald. You are a back
number. If you haven't the dollar
and a hall to buy "a string of extracts from socialistic literature"
exercise your own think tank for an
hour or so. Then tell us some more
of what you don't know about
The Eagle can see noihing but
success for the new Socialist Parly
of B. C. The executive committee
arc now getting primary organization into shape. An organizer is in
the field, assisted financially by both
the provincial and Dominion executive. Locals are being formed in
nearly every town visited, charters
are being issued nnd payment ol
dues has commenced. This wii!
provide a necessary fund lo go
ahead wilh organization and education, two factors which mean
success to any good movement. An
official newspaper will he established
in the interests of ihe Socialist
Pirly in March or April, and iho
political action may he deferred for
u time, it cannot be long until lhe
socialists will plainly demonstrate to
the old political parties, foggiesand
editors that socialism will not always he "coming." The new party
has a noble cause to make it a
power in Canada, and B. C. in
particular, Ii embodies all thai is
good in the objects ol our present-
day lodges and secret societies, in
fact it will be run on similar lines,
except that there will be no secrecy,
and every reputable man or women
mav become a member. The new
party means to turn our political
government, of which nothing need
he said bere to condemn it, into an
industrial government. As the new
organization grows its principles
will be better understood, and the
pie-crust clement will not hold up
their hands in holy horror, but
change their views and become
workers within ils ranks. As we
said before, the new Socialist Parly
of B.C. has a bright future ahead,
and will rapidly become an economic
power in this province.
tion the horrors oT baby farms, and |
other atrocious crimes and tact ors |
which go to make up society as i
constituted today.
If the rising generation, regard
less of their parent's financial stand
ing, were to receive the same
opportunities for obtaining a com
mercial and scientific education as
is now the privilege of monied men's
sons and daughters, would it not be
reasonable to suppose lhat the race
would be raised to a higher standard
of intelligence. Then nations would
settle their disputes by arbitration
and direct legislation, r.-itbcr than
by legalized murder. The money
spent by the people for war ships
should be put to better use.
The residents of this province
need not bother their heads about
getting more "capital" into this
province, it they place a government
in power whicii will develop all our
natural resources in the interests of
the province. A policy of this kind
would sustain the entire population
of the Dominion without difficulty.
"Capital" is leaving New Zealand,
but the people are not. Any profits
which are to be made the people
over there make it themselves. This
is what B. C. will do at no distant

present-day churches. They boih
deal wilh an "effect" of some
primary evil, Socialism will do
more lor humanity, since it will remove the "cause" of evil. This is
why labor-union men are fast becoming socialists,while the churches
are getting further out of touch with

Why do more men not marry ?
Certainly not because there are nn
mates for them. The fear of tomorrow is probably one reason. An
economic system such as tve have
today leaves no man certain of his
job. Today he may have work ;
tomorrow he must seek work elsewhere. And when he does work he
only receives a portion of what he
produces. And hy the lime he pays
tribute to the owners of production
on what lie eats, wears, drinks or
spends in transportation he is for-
tunate if lie is not dead broke. The
only way to get money is to make
somo other person earn a dollar for
you that he does not receive, or by
specula!ion for whom tlie producer
must suffer in the end, As lhe

the means of production (a selfish
socialist) become scarcer, and our

The Nolson Economist fools all put
out because "a convict in tho Kingston

Headquarters at Ferguson, B.C. ,**k{*"f S. Daney, Proprietor..
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 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 thc shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. bill, between thc 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 them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
camp ate located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point where
mining men cominginto 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 down the
hill lands lirst in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on thc lake, a
distance of four miles,
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are il
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 geographic
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, increasing
business, and money and enterprise will do the rest.    Come here and see for yourself.

The convention of the Socialist organization of B. C, which recently
met in Vancouvor, adopted a platform
similar to that of the U. S. Socialist
Party as a provincial statement of
principles, and authorized the executive of the U. C. Socialist Party to draft
a platform for this province and submit the same to a referendum vote of
1 the Locals in B. C. -*k
In submitting tho ivsult of their
labors the executive wishes to point
out that many of the vital demands of
Socialists were omitted from this platform because they belong to the sphere
of Dominion legislation.
All local branches of this organization in B. C. will be asked to vote by
membership, separately, on each demand of the platform and section ol
constitution, and forward same to the
provincial executive secretary,
