A
Trout  Lake   City  Making  Great
Preparations
The thud of the hammer Is heard in
all quarters of the town and 'tis sweet
music to the ears of those who have
waited rather impatiently for weeks for
a start to be made on their buildings.
The mill is kept running overtime in
an endeavor to cope with the demand
for lumber which is being dealt out
piece meal to the several buildings in
courso of erection.   It is expected however, that in a few days this defeot will
be remedied and there will be no further delay.   Work was resumed on the
hospital Monday and will be pushed
steadily to eompletisn.   The adjunct
to the Windsor Hotel is completed as
far as carpenter work goes and  the
paper hangers and painters are now
adding their quota. Everything will be
completed by July 1st.   Tha upstairs
bl the addition Is fitted into suites of
rooms for tho accommodation of famil*
ies.   Most of the suiteB wero engaged
in advance.   Messrs. Pool and Crilly
are having a house built opposite the
Windsor which they will use for office
and sleeping apartments.   The butcher
shop has been remodeled inside and
now   has tho  most modern appointments.   The cold storage, though but
ten by eight feet inside, is built on the
most approved plan and it is claimed
that meats can be kept perfectly fresh
in the hottest weather for a fortnight
or more, in a semi-frozen state.   McKinnon k Sutherland have completed
a warehouse at the rear of their store,
In which  will be housed hardware,
coke, coal, etc. Geo, B. Batho is building a chicken yard and house behind
his premises.   Mr. J*. McKinnon  has
lumber on the ground for a front to his
house on Walker avenue.   Mr. W. B.
Pool  has purchased   two  splendidly
situated lots on corner opposite Mr.
Shannon's residence and has let a contract to Mr. Dan Dunbar for the erection of a cottage.   According to the
plans this will be a neat and commodious dwelling.   And Mr. James Black
has let a contraot for a building to be
erected between the Perry and Foran
residences.
Altogether the town Is growing apaca
and by autumn will without doubt have
doubled in respect of buildings and Inhabitants.

London, June 24.���(12:46 p. m.)���Sir
Francis Knollys, the king's private
secretary, has Issued the official medical announcement, aa follows: "The
king is suffering from perityphlitis.
His condition on Saturday was so satisfactory that it was hoped that with
care His Majesty would be able to go
through the ceremony. On Monday
evening a recrudescence became manifest, rendering a surgical operation
necessary to-day.

Postponement Decided Upon.
London, June 24.���The first news of
the renewed illness of the king cams
from the house of commons, where var*
ious court officials gave an intimation
that the arrangements for Thursday
had better be suspended forthwith aB
the coronation would be postponed lu<
Know Littlo About Mining.
Thatthe mining laws of British Columbia are not what they ought to be
no one interested will di.pute. Unfor
tunately our local legislature is com
posed of* men who know little or nothing about mining, and laws framed by
them on this particular subject are abject failures. Not a session passes that
some change���the one more absurd
than the other���Is not made. The mining laws of British Columbia to-day
would puzzlo that ironioally quoted individual, a. Philadelphia lawyer. The
farmers, petty merchant? and lawyers
who constitute the provincial assembly
of legislator,*! know about as much of
mining as a hog does of watchmaking,
but still they legislate, and the worst
of It Is we h,ave to abide by their fool
definitely on account of tho Indisposition of His Majesty.
Operation Successful.
London, June 24.���Tho operation on
King Edward was successfully performed at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The
king did not lose consciousness and is
now asleep. It Is privately admitted
that the condition of His Majesty is
more serious than represented by the
medical bulletin,
Conditions Satisfactory.
Bulletin, London, June 24.-2:46 p.
m.���The following bulletin has b��en
posted at Buckingham palace: ','The
operation has been successfully performed, A large abscess has been
evacuated. The king hus borne tht
operation well and is in a satisfactory
condition."
Perityphlitis, for which the cablegrams say King Edward underwent an
operation, may be described in unadorned language as akin to appendicitis
and equally as dangerous. The fact
that the king did not lose consciousness
and at latest advices was calmly sleeping is looked upon as a good sign for
his speedy recovery.
Perityphlitis Is described by medical
men as an inflammation of the connective tissues about the caecum, which
is variously described as a cavity open
at one end, as the blind end of a canal
or duet, but In this particular instance
the caecum afflicted is the blind part
of the large Intestine beyond tho entrance of the small Intestine. The
caecum is comparatively small in man
and ends in a slender portion���the
vermiform appendix.
Medical men state that in tiie case of
perityphlitis an operation is absolutely
necessary, otherwise the patient has
exceptionally poor chances of recovery,
Consternation Everywhere
London, June 24.���The sudden announcement of the postponement of
the coronation, just on tho eve of the
ceremony, caused the utmost consternation everywhere. The news spread
like wildfire.   The tens of thousands of

occupants of the streets suddenly Btood
still under the sudden shock and gazed
at one another in silent dread of what
might come next.
On Saturday and Sunday, society
was discussing the reports of the king's
illness, although the circumstantiality,
detail and sources from which they
came precluded entire disbelief, there
was a disposition to doubt the stories,
and when the positive categorical denial was officially issued, the stories
of illness were dismissed as being un
founded.

bad news was startling. Prices weakened, led by Consols with a fall of half

Hia Majesty, under ordinary condi-*
tions, was not looked upon as a good
subject for operations, and though the
king passed successfully through the
ordeal, it is believed that four or five
weeks must elapse before he will be
able to undergo the arduous labor of
the coronation ceremonial. Therefore,
no (lute can yet be indicated for carrying out the coronation,

in its infancy here, and instead of retarding itB growth by weighing it down
with taxes, it should be fostered and
encouraged to grow. We have now at
the head of the department of mines a
man who practically understands his
business, and much may be expeeted of
him. Constant tinkering with the mining laws is undesirable, but better that
tbis should bo done than that a palpable injustice should be allowed to exist.
It is now on the tapis to appoint a commission to inquire into the subject, and
if men who understand their work are
named there, is every probability that
their offorts will be productive of much

Coronation Gifts.
The Impei ial Bank has given a coronation gift to each employee in their
service amounting to ten per cent, of
their yearly salary. This amounts to
nearly $50,000. The bank is to be congratulated upon Its generosity. Institutions of this nature are usually run
upon cold hard Inflexible rules which
do not provide for actions of this nature. The Imperial Bank is doing an
Immense business all over Canada and
it is pleasing to observe that the management is of tho opinion that employees should share in the general prosperity.

The writer representing the Eagle

a year since our last visit and quite an
improvement was noticed in the general appearance of tho town, A number
of buildings havo been put up, Including the big Odd Fellows' hall, not yet
completed, and two commodious ore
sheds to house the Silver Cup and Nettie L. ores. These are packed full of
high grade ore awaiting shipment by
boat to Gerrard; thenco by the new
Lardeau railway to Kootenay lake, then
by boat to the smelter at Trail. A
great saving in expense and time will
be effected In the improved means of
transportation, The Trout Lake people evidently know how to take pleasure out of life' judging by the tastily
arranged lawns and flower beds, also
by the large number of pleasure boat*
moored at tho lakes head. Through
tho kindness of Mrs. Abrahamson, Mr.
D. L. Clink and Mr. Griffiths, a mosl

FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 1902.
The Ferguson Smelter.
It will be gratifying news to our
readers to learn that the smelter
will be "blown in" early in July.
Some people got it into their heads
that fluxes could not be secured, but
this was not right for any quantity
of good fluxing iron ore and lime
was located over two months ago,
but tne difficulty that confronted the
management was that the cost of
hauling the fluxes was deemed too
great, therefore the matter was allowed to rest till the snow went off
sufficiently to permit of a thorough
search being made near at hand.
Last week Mr. Sam McCaul succeeded in locating large quantities
of fluxing lime on the Great Northern hill and only three quarters of a
mile Irom the smelter. Mr. McCaul has in charge a number of
men getting out this lime which
will be hauled to the smelter as fast
as possible.
A number of men are at work on
the big Nettie L. iron lead getting
out the necessary iron ore for fluxing and a start will be made hauling
this down ir. a few days.
Three hundred tons of Nettie L.
silver-lead ore have been secured
and will be brought down at once
to "blow in" the smelter. This will
be enough to keep running until ore
which is accumulating at the Triune
can be brought down. It is expected that when the smelter is
"blown in" enough ore will be forthcoming from the different mines to
keep it running continuously. Manager J. McCrossan is having the
finishing touches put on the furnaces and buildings and everything
will be in readiness in a few days
for the "blow in" which is expected
to occur the first week in July.
Prorogation of the B. C. legislature took place on the 21st inst.
The session just closed was the
longest in the history ol the province���at least since confederation���
it having lasted 1 so days. We cannot say that the deliberations of the
members were marked by a very
pronounced exhibition of wisdom or
that their enactments will be of particular benefit to thc majority of the
people of the province. It has been
said that while no good has resulted
from the session there has also been
no damage done, but we believe the
province is surely retrograding. The
laws of the province are so uncertain that men of means who are not
already interested financially are
very loath to run up against the
mining laws as they exist in the
province to-day. Considering the
low price of silver, lead and copper,
we had hoped that some legislation
would have been enacted to relieve
-lur mining interests of some of the

The Milling Journal ot London prints
a cablegram from the Transvaal Chamber of Minos, Johannesburg, South
Africa, containing the information that
the gold output of the Transvaal mines
for the month of April, 1902, was 119,-
588 line ounces of gold.
This is nearly as much as tho monthly
output during the early months of 1896.
For instance the production for January of that year was 1*18,178 ounces of
unrefined gold. Allowance being made
between unrefined and refined gold It Is
seen tbat the production for April of
the present year is nearly as much as
that of January, 1896.
For the four months ended April 30,
1902, thc production amounted to 375,-
4111 ounces of fine gold.
Now that peace has boen made,
the mines of the Transvaal will be
rapidly reopened and new properties
developed, and it will not bo long before the output will reach tho maximum of tbe past, which was 482,106
ounces of gold ln August, 1399.
Since January 1,1890, up to and Including April, 1902, the Transvaal
mines have yielded, as shown by a
table compiled by a Los Angeles Mining Review from figures published in
the Mining Journal of London, 15,533,-
.106 ounces of gold, having a value of
���264,066,202.
Rhodesia's gold output has not, apparently, been in anyway interfered
witli during the war in South Africa.
In January, 1899, its production was
6371 ounces, and it has gone along
steadily increasing until it has reachcl
17,559 ounces in April, 1902, chronicling
a steady increase during a period ol
forty months.
The increase is made more evident
in the statement of the fact that the
total gold production ol Rhodesia for
the year 1898 was 18,085 ounces, being only a littlo more for that eutir.:
year than is now being produced overy
month. The total gold output of Rhodesia for the four mouths ended April
30,1902, was 63,609 ounces.
the evil done the province is a hundred
limes intensified. The worst of it is
tbe people have no redress; they can
only sit and look on while .he government ignores their protest. It is a marvelous government, this "business"
government of ours. They are apparently victims of a craze for giving
away and they might adopt as their
watohword "ask and ye shall receive."

AID FOR FERGUSON'S HOSPITAL
Tbe miners and business men of
Ferguson have united to erect a hospital here. This Is an absolute necessity as there is no place in which wo
can properly care for a sick man who
dont happen to have a home of his own.
There bas been about $1,500 subscribed
towards tho hospital locally and the
Eagle has been requested to receive
subscriptions from outside points which
will be acknowledged through the
columns of the Eagle each week.
There is something like $1,600 more to
raise and we hope that those who have
made money ln this camp will remember those who work away from the
comforts of older communities and send
along a liberal sum to help in the good
work. The hospital will be owned and
operated by the members of Lardeau
Miners' Union. Address all subscriptions to the Eagle.

Governor Generalship.
Lord Bopetoun's resignation as governor-general of Australia is due to
tbe fact that the commonweal!
has been slow to settle the question of
the seat of government. Under present circumstances tbe governor-general
ie compelled to maintain two offlolW
residences, one at Sydney and the bthei
at Melbourne. This cannot be done,
his excellency ssld, on a salary of 850,-
000 a year, He therefore asked for hi
addition sufficient to make good the deficiency. As the majority in the colonial parliament would not consent to the
Increase, thore was nothing left for
Lord Hopetoun to do except to resign.
The effect of this will be that Australia will not, for the present, have tbe
traditions of tbe viceregal office maintained in all its magnificence. Perhaps it will not be much the loser. The
president of the United States Is paid
only $50,000 a year, and he is underpaid. No doubt the Australians felt
tbat if a temporary increase wore accorded lt would have to be made per
manent. They are only exercising the
right of self-government In declining
to grant the money, and as -it is dis*
tinctly an affair of their own, tbey
must be the best judges of what tbeir
governor-general should be paid. Very
few governor-generals in Canada live
'within their official incumeof $50,000,
but It Is not always possible to find
men who are willing to put their hands
deep into their pockets for public pur*
poses.

From present indications it is very
possible that the Columbia & Western
railway, that is to say the C. P, B. will
secure the two and a half million acres
ot land they are anxious to get but to
which tliey are clearly not entitled,
Tbis is tho aftermath of the pernicious
policy of land subsidy giving to which
some of our wiseacres would hare the
province revert. Perhaps there is another coal field in sight which the com*
pany want to lay tbeir hands on. It is
stated that this Is really the case and
that the lands which' they wish to
select are in Southeast Kootenay and
embrace valuable coal and petroleum
areas. The government prevaricated
when asked as to their intentions about
this land grant, but recent events havo
proved that they mean to give the C.
P. B. all they ask for. It Is bad enough
to give away the surface rights, but
when aland grant includes coal and
petroleum it well, ia ctistricts where
these (ubstancss are known to exist,
