P
The Past Season Was Active, But
This One Will Eclipse Them All.
A Number of Test Shipments Will
Be Made Next Season.���A Big
Pay Boll Will Be Created
and a Lot of Development Work Done.
Camborne, B. C., January 25.���
Most interesting information is at
hand concerning the mining properties situated on Pool creek in the Lar
deau district. Pool creek enters Fish
creek about eight miles from .Comaplix.
at tbe head of Arrow lake, and passes
directly through the promising town-
site of Camborne. The first property
near the mouth of the creek is the
Chnlla group. It is a free milling
proposition, having large fissure veins
and carries large values in gold. Tbe
property is being developed by the
Imperial Development Syndicate of
Nelson. The present work consists
of running a tunnel on the vein, which
bas been found to be from five to ten
feet wide. Adjoining the Cholla group
are the Dora aud Thelma properties.
Theso are also free-milling claims.
On the Thelma there is a very fine
fissure vein upon whioh considerable
surfaco work has been done. The
Blue Jay group is situated a short distance up the creek, containing free
milling ore whioh gives good returns.
The next property is the Clara claim,
and although yet S'prospect it has every
Indication of making a good mine.
Further up the creek is the Uhley
group, also free-milling, which bas a
large ledge of low grade ore.
Some distance from this is situated
the Eclipse group, which  is operated
by an  eastern  company.    This  is a
silver-lead property, and  a considerable  amount of ore bas already been
taken out.    The company expects to
make a trial shipment at an early date.
Near  by is the Mobawk group.   The
ledge on the property contains silver-
lead ore.      Work  bas  been stopped
during the winter, but will be resumed
early  in   the  spring.   Some distance
away and up the creek is the Pontiac
group, a free-milling gold   property,
operated by the Pontiac Mining Company.     This company has expressed
its intention of   doing   considerable
development during the coming season.
The Alma group, which is also in tbe
samo section, has a very fine showing
of silver-lead ore.    This was recently
bonded  to eastern   capitalists,    and
active development will bo commenced
.shortly.
At the bead of the creek are the Blaok
Bear and Wide West groups, probably
the best known groups of the section.
Both of these hare very large bodies
low-grade galena, and from tbe work
already done upon them  good results
have    already been obtained.   They
are operated by  eastern  capitalists.
A proposition is on foot to do more
extensive   development   during this
year.
This section has shown up wall during the past year and this has necessarily affected the growth of tho town
of Camborne. A large number of
miners bave been attracted here and a
lively season Is expected ln the sprlrg.

12.0.0 A YEAR.
NEWS  OF  THE CAMP^UWUm
Very Little New in
the   Mining Arena
A General Review of
Camp   Happenings
The past week in Lardeau mining
circles has showed up nothing of
striking interest, this being the dull
portion of the year between the two
seasons. Work bere and there is being steadily pushed forward and a
number of deals are on the carpet, but
tbe week has been rather devoid of
unusual interest. Everybody has quh
talking rajlway, as this is now an
assured fact; and are busily ongaged
laying plans for the immediate future,
so that while not actually doing a great
deal of business everybody's attention
is well taken up. Pessimists are becoming scarce, for all agree tbat the
Lardeau's turn at the wheel of fortune
is now at hand. Nature bas provided
untold mineral resources in this district, the prospector bas found and
staked some of tbem, and now he Is
backed up by enough financially interested men to command attention from
the outside world. There is too much
at stake to retrograde, and forge ahead
the Lardeau will.
THEY WHL RE-ORGANIZE.
I The Towser Syndicate Setting in
Shape to do Business.
6. P. Ritter and Wm. Innes of the
Towser mine management, left for
Chicago and Sandon respectively on
Monday last. The property bas been
closed down for a few weeks while
arrangements for a re-organization of
the syndicate are being made. And
tbe chances are tbe Eaole was right
last Issue when it said that the bond
would be taken up at an early date.
Neither Mr. Innes or Mr. Ritter would
commit themselves, but did not deny
that it was their intention to do so.
perty may be equally valuable, but
the owners are not equal in energy and
push.
Perhaps the best definition of a
knocker is one who bas failed. Do
you recognize the character we have
drawn?���American Mining News.
NAVIGATION   IB    STILL    OPEN
The   Fred    Robinson  Oo.   Doing
Yeoman Service For The
-Lardeau.
The Fred Robinson Co. are still
keeping a channel, wide enough to run
their boat in, open on tbe arm and
jreight is moving daily, besides facilitating tbe means of connection between
Thomson's Landing and Arrowhead
for passengers. A public subscription,
already amounting to nearly $100 a
month for three months, has beon
circulated and subscribed for by
parties interested in navigation being
knpt open, to remunerate the company
for the extra expense nf ice breaking
and wear and tear. This is as it
should be. The big C. P. R. steamers
are not trying to come In after Lardeau ore at all, knowing full well tbat
they will receive it anyhow later on.
Tho Eaolk only hopes the local company will succeed in keeping navigation open from now on, as there are
many important reasons why it should
be. particularly to the business men of
Ferguson, who are getting In largo
stocks of miners supplies to fill the
local demand, and also in anticipation
of tbe busy season ahead.
thk Mink knockers.
THB JAPS MOST 00.
The Chronicle of Spokane Is
authority for the statement that ���Jim"
Hill of the Great Northern railway has
given ordei s tbat all Japanese employed on bis railway must go as
rapidly as white men can be got to
take their places. The Japanese are
employed, so tt Is said, through a con*
tractlng firm of Japanese at Seattle,
at a rate of one dollar a day, the firm
paying the men ninety cents on the
dollar. Tbe firm also supplies the
Japanese laborers with all their food
supplies, which the railway oarries
free. The Japanese have worked their j
way to St. Paul, where a gang were'
put at work one day oleaning up Mr.
Hill's private oar. They made a mess
of it, putting ice in the stove instead
of tbe water tanks. This displeased
Mr. Hill, and the order for the "Japs
to go" wm tl>* ��onsequ��Bce.
With the dawn of civalization jealousy waB born, and the passion grows
stronger as the world advances. Tbere
always will be men who manage by
lack of either Intelligence or energy, to
miss the train of prosperity and remain
disgruntled and soured the rest of their
lives. This class Is appropriately
termed "knockers."
In the mining camps the knocker Is
found In a great variety of form.
There Is the knocker who has been
told that the title will not bear Investigation; that the ore is too low grade
to work; that tbe ore bodies are pinching ; that Bill Smith has a better mine
for less money ; and that, generally,
all mine ownors are suspicious
characters���unless tbe knocker is
personally identified with the deal. In
some of the western mining sections
the principal "knocker" is the old
timer who came here with the soldiers.
He has never left the country, never
seen the marvols that modern inventions have developed ln tbe great
mines of tho world, or even been 600
feet underground. His "knowledge Is
gained from tbe little band of local
knockers who hang around the hotel
and store and wonder by what right
these new comers change the conditions of mining.
Tn the search for metals two men
may start equal. Both locate on the
same lode and work with the greatest
harmony. At night as they sit by
their camp fire, their hopes, ambitions
and sorrows are shared. But let one
of these men interest capital in bis
individual claim and coolness springs
up at once between them.
The old partner oannot understand
why it was not his claim that was thus
developed. The friends drift wider
and wider apart.    One grows rich, the
HELLO I IS THAT THE NETTIE L.?
The Directors Have Decided To
Put in a Telephone.
The directors of the Nettie L. have
decided to extend the telephone line
from Ferguson to their mine, whieh
will also be used by the Double Eaglo
Mining Co., who will be operating the
Maybe by March 1st. Wm. Cowan,
proprietor of tbe telephone system intends to repair the entire line and also
establish a local central in Ferguson.
Poles will bo put up wherever needed.
The telephone is one of tho greatest
conveniences we have in the Lardeau
and It is a pleasure to note the extensions and improvements which are
to be made within tho noxt ninety
days.
WHAT IS A "WILD OAT"?
about it.   If you can help a thing, why
worry about it?   That's meliorism.
If a mcliorist can help a thing, can
alleviate an evil, can remove a wrong,
he goes ahead and does It.
If he can't remedy a condition he
finds, if he sees insurmountable obstacles in tbo path he wants to follow, ho
doesn't worry about it.
What's the use? Fifty years from
now it won't make a bit of difference.
The trials of to-day are forgotten tomorrow. The greatest trouble
vanishes with time.
It Is worry and not work that kills.
When you read of some one killed or
cruized by overwork, don't believe it.
They may have been killed by worrying because they had to overwork,
but never by overwork itself.
Optimism is just as bad as pessimism.
The optimist sees everything through
tinted glasses.
Instead of saying. "Things aro bad,
but they might be better," the optimist says, "Things are bad, but they
might be worse."
If everybody was an optimist the
world would never get any bettor or
brighter. Self-satisfaction is a tremendous obstacle to individual or
national progress.
Thero is passive indifference and
active indifference. The optimist is
passively indifferent to everything he
sees. He does not bother to right tbe
wrong he sees.
The meliorlst is actively indifferent,
indifferent only when he has learned
by experience that it is beyond his
power to right tho wrongs he finds.
Pessimists make life unhappy for
everybody. Optimists make only
themselves happy.
And if I were boss everybody would
have to be a meliorist. and then everybody would be happy.

To Prova His Assertions.
Jno. J. Young of the Calgary Herald,
and a director In the Great Western
Minos, Limited, (Nettie L.) aud tho
Double Eaglo Mining Co., both operating In this camp, has Instituted proceedings against John Houston of tho
Nelson Tribune for libel. Mr. Houston
said Mr. Young was not only endeavoring to pull even on a recent gold brick
proposition, but was operating a number of "wild cat" claims at Ferguson.
The courts may now give us the true ]
definition of a "wild cat."
AS TO MELIORISM.
Mr. editor:
If I were boss;
I would kill off all the optimists and
murder the pessimists, and everybody
would be a good deal happier.
Life isn't worth living unless one
can be a meliorlst���a man who believes
the world is bad, but that it can be
made better.
Pessimism���taking the worst view of
everything. I never could see the
sense of lt. Worrying about the past,
worrying about the present, worrying
about the future���that's pessimism.

Here When Wanted.
The tax Is levied in lieu of all other
forms of taxation on mining property,
whether held as real estate or personal
property, and it is levied on the selling
price of the ore at the pit mouth.   The
contention tbat the tax works a hardship on the poor man who is developing a prospect Is, to say  the  least, a
trifle far-fetched.   Ore to the value of
15000  is exempt from taxation,  and
there is few claims nndergoingdevelop-
ment which ship during a year ore to
the value  of $5000 at the pit mouth.
The  cry  against the tax is raised by
managers of foreign mining companies,
and non-residents who object to paying
any taxation, either direct or indirect,
but who never tire in making demands
for appropriations  for building roads
and trails to their properties.     Taxation should be just, and  no  tax thn'.
has yet been levied is more fair to nil
the  peoplo of the provinco than the ^
per cent,   tax  on tho output of tnetn
mines.   The minerals tbat are mini'
and  sold cannot bo replaced, and thc
land    from    which the minerals are
taken is afterwards valueless   for tav
ation purposes.     A mine may produce
ore   of the value of $1,000,000 in three
years, and   be   non-productive    ever
afterwards.     The  tax-evaders   want
such  a mino taxed  as real estato, in
order to escape taxation altogether; as
for every  one that  pays  real estate
tixes promptly  to the  province, two
never pay at all.   An exhausted mine
is just as worthless as an asset to thc
provinco on   which  to  realize delinquent taxes as it 16 to any other creditor of a mining company who seeks to
recover a debt.   On the other hand, a
mine that produces in three years ore
of the value of $1,000,000 at thc pit
mouth pays tho province $20,0(10 in all
under the 2 per cent, tax, which does
not  seem  to  bo  an unfair share to
return to the province.

There can be no doubt but that

Dominion. The discarded politicians who have come from eastern

west have received a rude shock at
the large vote recently polled hy

rot laugh at the "pretensions" of

The yearly report of the Ontario
bureau of mines whieh. has just been

John Penny, of the Democratic
Herald, says that the coal question
is one that looms up very largely in
people's minds just now, and the
resolution passed a short time ago
by the Yeadon (Eng.) Urban district council will be read with much
interest. The resolution is as follows: "That, having regard to the
need for cheap and abundant supply of coal, the exorbitant demands
nt the coal mine owners, and the
large amount of coat exported
annually to other countries, this
council is ot opinion that the only
effectual means of economising the
supply and reducing the price, is
for the mines to become the
property of the nation, and that a
copy of this resolution be sent to
the prime minister, the member for
parliament, and all the district
councils in the Otley division, with
a request that they will give tV
support to the same."
Let us grasp evory opportunity to
build up our town, lot no one be idle,
there is a lot of good work to be done.
The country surrounding us offers
plenty of opportunity for good hard
rustling and will amply repay any
efforts wo can put forth to develop its
wonderful resources.
In the midst of life wo aro all in debt.
Governments and civic corporations
keep us in it. notwithstanding our
individual efforts to owe no man, Hon.
Mr. Fielding will go to England this
month to arrange for a new loan of
about $200,000,000. Between now and
1002 about $167,000,000 falls due in
London and a sinking fund of $07,000,-
000 lias to be provided for.
Tho mine-owners of the Slocan nre not
the only ones that tho great American
trust bas singled out as its victims.
The Salt Lake Tribune predicts that
the next move of the trust will he an
assault upon tiie United States tariff
lead ores from Mexico and liritish
Columbia. The trust alroady controls tbe price of tho refined article,
ind its next move will ba to reduce the
price of raw ore by abolishing" the
duties.
Because the Eaole contends that
the provincial government should
build a railway or an electric tramway from Revelstoke to the Big
Bend, rather than a wagon road,
is no reason why the government
should not build a road at all if it
decides not to build either of the
former. The first step would be
unnecessary if the government
would immediately take the second
step; but the first step would be
better than no action at all. The
Eagle figures it out that five dollars
expended by the government where
it leaves them an asset is better
than one dollar expended with comparatively no asset remaining. The
Big Bend is rich in natural resources
and should be developed; but since
its resources are beyond the question of a doubt a more progressive
.means of opening it up should be
exercised than the building of a
wagon road. It is high time the
government would jar loose and
expend more money in a judicious
manner and thus help to open up
districts known to be filled with
natural resources. The lower
country to-day is repaying to the
public treasury, in revenue, every
dollar that was spent there in the
earlier days, and the same will he
done here after .another year or two.

Lardeau,    tbe   Coming
Camp     of     B.    C.
That the    Lardeau  district   lias
unbounded   mineral   resources   no
well informed person will deny.
Thc Lardeau district is entering
upon a new era, brought about by
wonderful developments, finds and
strikes already made; along with
the fact that the construction of a
railway by the C. P. R. is absolutely certain for early next season, in
fact the company are now building
the wharf at the head of Kootenay
lake, and the contract for 80,000
ties has been let.
The large ore shipments being
made this winter in spite the fact
that transportation and treatment
costs $35 to $50 per ton, indicates
the high grade nature of our ores.
With cheap transportation next
season, when Lardeau's low and
medium grade ores can be treated
profitably the possibilities are
astounding. I
The attention of outside investors
has already been arrested and hundreds are now making arrange- i
ments to operate in this district���
in fact some of them are here now,!
securing bonds, looking for and'
finding ground-floor propositions.
No district in Canada to-day
offers better inducements for the
investor than this one. The mining
industry is no monopoly. The poor
man has even chances,at least more
so than in other lines. When he
finds a "Triune" he doesn't need to
sell. What other occupation in
lite can a man follow where his
chances with a wealthy competitor
are less diminished than in prospecting and mining?
"There 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 min
ing camp, the Lardeau offers it
to-day. Don't wait until the railway comes; for then the prospector
is not in the same need of money to
hang on.
If you have money to invest now
is the time to investigate. Come
straight to Ferguson ; you will find
men here who have properties to
sell; in fact Ferguson is the home,
the meeting place for prospectors
and investors. The 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. Wc
have the mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you
come in and help us and thus help
yourself ?

under franchise granted by private
nuts." This act is the samo iu nature
as the Immigration Act, whieh is now
lining successfully onforcod against
Japanese immigrants. It provides
that companies wo"king under acts
passed at tho last session of tho legislature or any acts that may be passed
in the future, if only amendments to
former acts, shall not employ any workman who "when asked to do so by a
duly authorized officer, shall fail to
himself read iu a language of Europe,
this act." Any employer, contractor
or siib-oonti'ttoter employing any such
person is liable to a fine not exceeding
$25, and not less than $10, or in default
imprisonment for thirty days. Any
member, officer, manager or agent of a
corporation who causes or procures any
person to be engaged or omployed
runtrnry to the provisions of tho act,
or pormits or connives at sucli engagement or employment, will be. liable.
upon summary conviction, to like
penalties.
The offender shall be liable to separ-
* ate and successive penalties for each
and every day during which any person shall be employed.
In tbe event of any contravention
ofthe act, it shall lie on the employer
to prove that the person was not
pngaged or employed contrary to the
provisions of the act.
Tho government lias appointed all
provincial constables to boo that the
act is obsorvod, and has issued Instructions to thorn. After quoting the net,
I tin instructions proceed:
"fa) All provincial constables shall
npply tn all persons who, as they
helieve, are not able to comply Willi
tin' provisions of the said section, .ind,
though a person of tho same nationality, able to speak tho English language, and shall demand that satisfactory evidence he plven that such suspects aro able to comply with said
section.
"(b) It shall for tbo time being, be
ed satisfactory if the person
approached, together with the person so interpreting, shall make
statutory declaration stating that the
said suspect has read this act in a
language of Europe; tho copy ofthe
aet so road shall bo attached as an
exhibit to the said declaration, and
the person interpreting shall, in his
declaration', declare that the suspect
lias read tlie said act, and in what
language of Europe.
"(c) The said declaration shall forth
with be forwarded to this department
and upon tho provincial constable
lioini* notified by this department that
the evidence given is satisfactory. hi

to the said aet, that tho person is
eligible for employment under the
said act.
"If any person so approached shall
bo unable, to comply with tlio provip
ions of the said act, in manner before
mentioned, the provincial constable
shall institute proceedings ns sot forth
in said section 4, and, upon a conviction boing secured, at once notify this
department, with a view that proceedings may ho taken if deomed advisable,
under section !) of tho said ant.
"Proceedingsshall betaken, when;
sufficient evidence can ho secured,
against all agents or other conniving
at the employment, of persons iiuahlo to
comply with tho provisions of tbo
said act, as set out In section -I.
"Any pot-son who shall, in the
presence of a provincial constable,
