An Easier and Direct  Outlet tor the
Fish Creek Camp.
Mr. Taylor Will be Asked to Intercede
With the Hon. W. C. Wells.
The following petition, which
explains itself, is being circulated
throughout the district by BenBauey,
an old timer, and is being largely
signed. It will bo forwarded to Thos.

To the Hon. W. O. Wells, Minister
of PUBLIC Works, Victoria, 13.0:
We; the undersigned residents, miners and claim owners, boing directly
interested, in nnd about the Fish
Crenk camp of the Lardeau mining
district, beg respectfully to call your
Honor's attention to the following:
Thut the unexpectedly rapid develop-
intuit nf tlio Fish Creek camp, demands'
the immediate construction of a wagon
road from the head of navigation, along
Fish oreek, as far as Pool creek, because the present pack trail Is wholly
inadequate for the transportation of
the necessary supplies. machinery,
Tbat such road Bhould bo so located
as to connect witb tlio present Trout
Lako ami Ferguson wagon road, and so
beuelii, the who!" district,   rather than
Honor cause to bo built tlio aforesaid
wagon road; but before sodotngyou
will cause to bo made a careful Investigation and estimate of the proposed
route by a competent engineer,
And your petitioners will ovor pray,
etc., etc.
A recent report says: There is a
business understanding between Duns-
muirand the New Vancouver Coal Co.,
and that the companies will resist the
miners' union's de: .nnd for a 10 per
cent, advance noxt month. Tho strike
of all the colliers on Vancouver Island
is predicted by porsons in touch with
both sides. It is believed, that Superintendent Itobins, now returning from
ICugland, conies back to decline the
demanded advance. The Dunsmuirs
are determined to keep tho Alexandra
raine closed until the men agree to
work on their conditions.
The C. P. B. is now in tho midst of
the diffloult navigation season on the
Arrow lakos, the trouble being caused
by ice which forms there several incites
thick. Ths steamers have never
failed to got through the floes yet, but
thoir arrival is usually from an hour
to two hours late,' and this may ho
expected to continue until a thaw
breaks up the ice. A barge specially
built nnd equipped for thu work is used
us nn Ice breaker, and with this it
in impossible for the steamer to make
better time than half speed.

The provincial press at present is
lull of railway talk, tor or against
certain charters being granted. If
our government, Iqcal..and general,
would put all proposed roads on a
common basis and let them build
where they would���provided they
did it with their money, not the
people's���there would be fewer
roads built on paper and more
spikes driven. The motto of our
legislators should be "The more
railways the better, but not one
dollar nor one foot of land. "���Silvertonlan.       -   -
The Rossland Miner editorially
comments upon the fact that the
great trusts of the day are crushing
the small captatilists out of existence. And it further argues that
these men having despaired ot
holding their own against the trusts,
and areiturning their attention to the
mining industry, a business which
offers a fair and equal chance to all.
British Columbia seems to be their
choice as a field of investment, so
that a great influx of American
capital may be looked for this year.
The construction of the Lardeau
branch'of tbe C. P. *R. will serve as
a drawing card for this district. It's
an ill wind that blows no one good.
ing is being conducted as a legitimate business, and when it is, has
no equal in any of the different
branches of industry as a profit
winner. The beauty of mining is
that all are equal. The big operator has none the best of the small
operator; he gets the same price for
his product. Take the large business houses and manufactories
The big department stores are
crushing the lite out of the small
concerns by degrees. The small
houses may carry the same class of
goods, but it is more popular to
deal with the big ones, while in
mining all have an equal chance to
dispose of their product. The
banker, merchant or mint will buy
readily at the same price of the
smallest operator or miner as he
will from the big mine owner.
Therefore all have an equal chance
in mining, and the present year will
witness a wonderful progress all
over the mining regions of the
northwest. ���Outcrop.
It is not more competition in railways we want in Canada; it Is public
Canada has advanced a step���government ownership of telegrahps. The
next will soon follow.
A seven-pound parcel can be sent
anywhere in New Zealand for 25 cents.
The government owns and operates
the railways.
Mr. Fielding has announced that the
government intend to establish a mint

Premier Roblin has ljased, with an
option to purchase, all the N. P. railway lines in the province of Manitoba.
Ex-Premier Macdonald's "government
ownership" pnlicy was no Idle dream.
There seems to be a little misapprehension among some employees, and an occasional "red
pump" man, as to what the responsibilities of an employer are.
This is a competitive age and those
who do not get all they can and
keep all they get are out of luck.
A man may be in favor of a co-oper-
tive system of government, but
were he to put his "ideals" into
practice, irrespective of everyone
else, the result would be bankruptcy. The fact of the matter is
an employer is not to blame any
more than that he is an individual���
a cog in the wheel of society. So
long as tradesmen neglect to organize and protect their own interests
for just so long will it be their own
tault. The miners have protected
themselves, the printers, the railroaders, etc. etc., have organized
and are protecting themselves;
capitalists on every hand are cooperating and protecting their
interests. And if the rest ofthe
laboring men do not look after their
own interests politicians will not do
it for them. When the government, as it undoubtedly will,
assumes control of what we term
"trusts" to-day, there will not be the
same urgent need of organization
and protective societies, but in the
meantime it's the only means of
securing a   liv ng show to exist

So long as the poor harmless childlike Topic devotes the portions of its
colums not occupied by "dead" ads. to
the wrongs committed by the Eagle
there is no damage done, It pleases
the Topic and only serves to tire the
community. But when Mr. Langstaff
makes BtatementB concerning the personal affairs of the Eaole proprietor
which are absolutely false then patience
ceases to be a virtue.
Men. with capital at their backs
are, .becoming more cautious about
investing in general business in the
large cities of the east, for what
promises to be a prosperous busi
ness is ruined in a single day by
floods, fire or politics and for this
reason they are turning their attention to the mining industry. Go
where you will in mining districts
and you will meet representatives
of capital looking over the fields for
investment. . These, people are
beginning to understand that min-
The Topio has no occasion to speak
of Sunday work in this camp. For it
is a generally acknowledged fact that
the Topic is issued oftener on Sunday
than on Saturday, in fact the very
issue which accuses the Eaole of
Sunday work was printed only last
Sunday. Thore is no Sunday work
done ln the Eagle oflice. But after
all. for oil the work Mr. Langstaff
does, it would scarcely break the
Canada does not want any moro
competition in the railway business.
What we want 1b public ownership,
and then If necessary protect ourselves
as much as we like from outside competition which tends to build up other
couatries. A correspondent In tlio
Rossland Miner puts It about right
whon ho says: " Docs anyone imagine
for one moment that those American
capitalists represented by Jim Hill,
wish tn build railways in Canada for
the welfare of tho Canadian people?
No. They see that British Columbia
is rapidly coming to the front, us a rich
mining country and their object is to
enrich themselves by first gaining
control of tho coal fields and then compelling the mine owners to have their
ore smelted In American syndicate
smelters. This coal question has
troubled Mr. Hill exceedingly of late
years, and if be ever gets control of
Canadian coal the C. P. B. will have
to burn wood or 'lay down.'"
Tho "knocker.'
The Topic never fails to cast a slur
upon those holding socialistic ideas,
and last issue is no exception. As
usual, the damphool who suffers most
by a competitive system scorns the
idea of co-operation.
Tho pubishor of the Eagle is a
member of the typographical union
and employs a union printer at union
printer's      wages. The     Topio
hanger-nn who has suddenly become a
champion of labor, cannot say as much.
Tho proprietor of the Eagle has
been employing men more or less in
the west since '94, and he has to be
accused, for the first time, by a "red
pump" individual who was still in the
"big swamp" down home, at that time,
of working men longer hours than any
other employer.
The Topic has seen fit to twit us upon
our socialistic principles, even going
so far as to say we were inconsistent.
Now the Topic knows different to this.
Following the precepts of a benevolent
brotherhood, have wo not furnished
the Topic for the last four months, so
far without money and without price,
the very ink and paper by which we
are reviled and falsely accused of working men ten hours a day.
An addition to the Eaole staff Is
being made this week in the person of
Fred. S. Kettleson, who will arrive
bere this evening. The EAGLE will bu
enlarged as soon as our new press is
received���with ihe opening of navigation on the Arm���and, with the rest
of our additional plant and stock, installed In tho new quarters which will
be readyWor occupancy Id a few days.
The Eagle, some weeks ago, decided to make room for its growing
business, new plant, now stock and
additional workmen, and also to supply
a public hall which is badly needed.
Since the Topic has taken our private
affairs into print we are compelled to
make our position clear. Mr. Steve
Woods of Trout Lake, was given the
contract at $4.75 a day, 75 cents more
than the local scale. He in turn hired
two men, also of Trout Lake, at $3.50
a day, and assumed charge of the
work. These men have put up at
Andy Cummings' hotel, ate their meals
with Mr. Cummings' men and worked
exactly the same hours as Mr. Cummings' men, probably 8 or 9 hours a
day. It ill becomes the Topic to accuse
the Eagle of overworking or underpaying employees. If it can find one
single man in this cam;) who can prove
that we have ever paid less than the
scale or worked employees too long
hours we will meet the matter squarely. In the EAGLE office at the present
time a union printer is employed���
and paid���at union wages. The Topic
can not say as much. The proprietor
of the Eagle may have socialistic
ideas of government, hut he is not a
philanthropist. Nor does le stand off
hia men when they do earn their
money. The Topic may have some
difficult ��� in proving that tbe carpenters employed on the Eagle building
are scabs���or by intimation termed
scabs. Thero is no carpenters' union
and no Bet hours of labor in this distriot, but tho wages paid as quoted
above are even more than the general
scale for carpenters and laborers.
With the proprietor of tho Eagle, who
pays his way in the world, it is necessary that he receive good value for
his money, To an object of charity
such as the Topic scribe, he can prom
ise to pay anything���but that doesn't
help him out particularly on the
"square man" feature. There are
somo mon who appreciate a favor but
the Topic "knocker" isn't built that
way. He throws down the very men
who do what's right hy him. To be

Mr. Langstaff has waBted a good deal
of wiod���the only commodity he has
on tap���and kept a tired community in
agony for some three years, but so far
there is no other evidence of his faith
in anything. Tills Is a free country

us to hunt for a job on the seetion,
when we announced our intention of
launching the Eaole in Ferguson, and
boasted that it would put us on tbe

The Man Who Can See the Length

Lardeau,    the   Coming
Camp     of     B.    0.   .,.
That the   Lardeau  district- has
unbounded   mineral  resources   no
well informed person will deny.
.   The 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
The attention of outside investors
has already been arrested and hundreds nre now making arrangements 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
life can a man follow where his
chances with a wealthy competitor
are less diminished than in prospect'
ing 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 mining' 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 lound most reasonable
and always ready to give you information, cheerfully escort you to
their properties, and otherwise
interest you in their interests. We
have the mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you
come in and help us and thus help
yqurself ?

Real Estate
in Ferguson
Is ���probably the safest investment in the country
as can be readily seen from  the  actual  records
of assessment,  certificates   of   improvements,
development,   new strikes in   various mining
properties surrounding Ferguson  and . the fact
that a railway will reach here this  year.'     The
demand  for  Ferguson   Real Estate will be too
brisk by spring to secure the  same  values   as
now.     Choice lots   already   disposed   of  are
changing   hands   among   private    owners   at
double  and   more   than our prices.    And it is
quite   reasonable  to suppose that the townsite
prices will  be advanced as the demand for lots
increases.     In  anticipation  of what is in store
for the near future, several large buildings are
being erected, a public school building is  to be
provided, two banking institutions will establish
branches here, and taken altogether the citizens
are   evincing   their faith   in   the     town     by
something  more   than   talk.
Ferguson is the
Coming Town
The Place Where
the Mines Are
Ferguson  is recognised by all to be the best
located and laid  out townsite  in the Lardeau
district.    Its unique position  at  the  base and
gateway to the Great Northern,   Nettie L. and
Silver Cup hills,  entitles it to the well known
local name���the Pay Roll centre.    Ferguson is
the headquarters and outfitting ptjint for all  the
mining   men   now   operating   in   this district.
Accept a pointer, make enquiries, come in  and
see for yourself and you   will   agree   with   us
that  Ferguson  Real  Estate  is   the best thing
now  offered  as a safe investment in this country.        The     large   number   of   sales; among
private owners of lots, the   stea.dy  upbuilding
of   the town,   and  the confidence   displayed
by men who are already on he ground   should
be sufficient evidence for the a-veragc  investor
that like all othar mining camps,   the  leading
towns are located where the  mines  are.     And
Ferguson will be no exception t<o the rule.
