Rev. E. S. Rowe is Alive to  the
Interests of the People.
A PEOPLE'S TRUST WANTED
An Industrial Government Would
Own and Operate the Means of
Produotion and Distrtation
This world is a machine which ought
to turn out a good product physically,
mentally and morally. Believing thut
the creator of the machine miulo no
mistake and seeing that tho finished
product is not what it ought to be, we
are forced to conclude that wo are not
managing the machine as itonghtto
be managed.
The world was mado for tho uso of
man, and its. resources were intended
to build up a good manhood. The
iinished product of our machine should
bo not money, but mon, and the arrangements of society should all be
made to tend towards such production.
It ought to be possible for a man to
expect fair rewards for being moral,
whereas under present conditions the
highest rewards are often now on!;,
throuuh selfish and unjust methods. Ii
ought to be that an honest, God-feai'lnp
man going forth to the work of life
would fool that he would bo placed at
no disadvantage, because of his devotion to the principles of right.
But while such conditions should
exist, what do we find '! Men wlio aro
willing to work and anxious to support
their families often find themselves
near the verge of starvation. During
times of so-called prosperity they may
be able to keep their chins above the
water, but let some little breeze trouble
the water and chin and face become
submerged. When wo have good times
mon aro working, nnd by reason ol
thoir earnings aro consumers, but soon
what Is called over-production causes
a decrease in the amount of work to be
done, aud many are thrown out of
employment. The loss of work and of
Its earnings prevents tbem from consuming ns much as before, whilo at the
same time thero is nn overabundance
of products to bo consumed. Tho warehouses aro Oiled with food and clothing'
and thousands of people need these
vory things, but tho needy ones and
tho things that supply the need cannot
be brought together. After a timo as
a result of lank of produotion the ovor
supply is reduced, and work Is again
available for a time. In other words,
society like a fever patient, cures itself
by almost starving to death. Thoro
must be some faults i: our arrangements or such a euro would not be
necessary. Soci< ty should no in a
healthy condition '!'. tho lime, and nol
require such Bcve ��� die!
One of the Bttddesi .1. its In the world
Is a mail wbo needs tvoi!���: anil cannot
find it. Only a few years ago In New
York thero was some snow shovelling
to be done by the city und so many
mon applied at tho city nllloes for a
ohanoo to shovel thai the crowd became
unmnnagnbln. Tho only solution of
tho difficulty was found in tho city
teams hauling loads of shovels In the
various streets and the lolling tho men
who wore lucky enough to got shov
do thu work. And men fought like
demons for a shovel! And this iu Now
York where about the same timo seventy persons sat down to a $10,000
dinner.
Thousands who try to livo honostly
almost starve, while tho man who com
inits crime is sent to a penitentiary,
where good loud is always supplied.
Soeloty by its arrangements offers
greator rowardsto its criminal element
than to many of its honest citizens.
Owing to the presont regulations the
humau element has been largely
crushed out of the relationships between employers and employees. The
omployer is ordinarily tt corporation in
thoso days, representing shareholders
who must huvo dividends. The corporation owns tho tools and looks after
tbcts, but the ordinary employee does
not count for anything so far as tho
balance sheet is concerned inasmuch
as his place can easily bo filled by 'another.
Tho fact of tho matter is thore sooms
to be too many mon, and so many people
bellovo that war, famine and vice are
necessary in ordor to remove tho distress caused by tho excess of population. Such an idea is a reflection upon
tho benevolence und wisdom of the
Creator.
The question now Jari6es���how can
we mako conditions better ? Much bas
been accomplished hy legislation, and
wo must still look to thut source for
considerable relief. Wise enactments
must bo placed upon our statute books,
and laws must ho such that any person
of common intelligence can understand.
We muy not get perfect legislation, bin
we can get good legislation and im
prove It as experience suggests. It Is
tho right of the poople to chance tbeii
minds foi' they pay for their errors am
if experience shows that someofoui
laws are unwiso we can and must
change thorn.
There must also be tlie righteous
administration of law. The administration of law must not be such as t'
prevent tlie poor man from gaining hi-
'���iehts. The excessive cost of litigatioi
often causes tho poor man to lose his
rights. '
Government by injunction must
cease. If It is possible by tho British
constitution to secure such injunctions,
that possibility must be removed.
Courts of arbitration should be established and men appointed to the
position of arbitrators only on the
ground of ability and character.
The Oriental problem might be
solved by the adoption of a minimum
wage, this wage to bo laid down by
experts thoroughly conversant with all
conditions.
In conclusion, said tho lecturer,
"agitato and educate. Educate in
school nnd church until tho time comes
when conditions aro such as to make
the truost and bost manhood."���Extracts from Rev. E. S. Rowo's lecture
at Rossland.

claim in .all the section of country
k mwn us tlie Lardo-Duncan country is
situated on streams that How into
Kootenay luke. Thoro are hundreds
of mineral claims on Silver Tip, McDonald, Porcupine, Cariboo and Hall
creeks, all of which are tributaries of
Duncan river and which Mow into it
ft'nm tho west. Duncan river has its
outlet in Kootenay lake atapointabout
fourteen milos north of Kaslo. Ovor

Tonderfoot, Rapid, Poplar, Hope and
Lake creeks, all of which flow either
into Trout lake or Trout lake's outlet,
the Lardo river, which empties into
the Duncan river at a pointthroe miles
from Kootenay lako. Tho trallle from
all these claims must bo down bill, and
by following tho trails down hill, every

There is no moro community of interest
between Trout Lako mining division
and Lardoau mining division than
thero is betwoon Treut Lake mining
division and Alnsworth mining
division, or ns much. All the mineral
claims in Lardeau mining division are
on creeks that flow into tho Northwost
Arm of Upper Arrow lako, and In order
to roach any portion of Arrow Lake
division from Lardeau division a
divide must be crossed. Ore, liko

It is seldom that lightning in Victoria, is sufficiently severe todazzle the
oyes of hundreds, or tbe thunder so
strong as to make buildings tromblo
witb the vibrations ofthe air. Such,
however, was the unique experience of
Victorians ono day last weok. The
storm lasted but a short time. The
electrical features of it consisted of but
one real peal of thunder and one Hash
of lightning, so closo and strong and so
utterly foreign to residents of the city
that hundreds did not realize until
after a few moments' reflection what it
was. It dancod on electrical wires, assumed curious shapes in many places,
and in ono instance hurled a motorman
from his position in front of a car, disabling the tram and sending it to a repair shop for a new armature.

Andrew Ferguson has returned from
Trail, Rossland, Nelson and other
south Kootenay towns, having accompanied the lust -Triune shipment of the
seuson to the Trail smelter. Tho shipment comprised 414 sacks of ore, the
gross weight of whieh was 49,770 lbs.,
nearly 5 tons. Tiie sacks weighed 1,200
lbs., and tho moisture deduction was
4.3, leaving a not weight of 40.487 lbs.
of ore. The smelter assays per ton. of
the shipment, (the basis of the purchase
price) were .40 ounces in gold, 345.';
ounces in silver, and 63.8 percent,
lead. The total gold values were
9.207 ozs., at $20 per ounce for 05 pe ���
cent, .or $170.64. Tho total silver values
were 80:12.05 ozs.,at tho exceedingly low
price of W 1-8 cents per ounce, for 0;'.
per cent., or $4,350,38. The total lead
values wero 25000 lbs., at the dreadfully low price of 1.486 cents per lb.,
for 90 percent., giving the owners only
$334.25. The gross values, therefore,
wero $4870.27, tho total charges, a;
$21 a ton for freight and treatment
from tho Landing, were $488.11. leaving
net values of $4,382.16. Out of tblt,
the cost of mining, packing to Tec-
mile, freighting to tho Landing! an''
the provincial oro tax must yet come,
leaving after all none too large a
remuneration for tho owners of the
Triune, though it is certainly a goo.!

Mr. Young's productions since his
arrival bere last spring.
Pi. II. Sawyer, manager of the Lardoau Power & Light Co., who purpose
installing a lighting plant in Ferguson,
informs tho EAOLE that when be road--
contracts for lights hero a couple of
weeks ago, a coast lirm had agreed t;i
furnish him tlie necessary piping inside of thirty days, but has bee;:
advised sinco tbat his order cannot b '
filled in less than ninety days, which
will leave it too late to do anything \ >
advantage hore this year. Mr. Saw-
yer wlil. however, have the order filled
and shipped without further delay to
Ferguson. Tho plant will be installed
as early next spring as possible without
asking any guarantee of patronage.
Mr. Sawyer is much disappointed bnl
ho was in no wise responsible foi- th 1

The constant weight on a man's
mind is chronic lightness of his
pocket. The fullness of most men's
thoughts is emptiness ol his own
purse.     	
provided by the C, P. R. It may
be quite true that there is a fair
margin with such high-grade ore
as the Lardeau produces���$200 a

waste of money, and the number of
lower grade ore producing properties which would become profitable
shippers were railway facilities provided. The Lardeau is iorging
ahead, however, in the face of every
obstacle. Here we nre, and we
find ourselves struggling against a
demoralized silver and lead market
caused by the manipulation of the
big   private   trusts;   the  lack   of
Newspaper men and mine owners j transpot.tation and as a consequence
are not Ihe   only   ones   wbo   have | macl]inery  for economical mining

Judging from nil indications, a

Molybdenite is a mineral of which
Lardeaultes would be pleased to
know more about. This mineral is
known to exist bere in paying quantities, and were the department of
mines to let Provincial Mineralogist
Robertson earn bis salary this winter by giving us a little practical
information concerning it, it would
probably assist many prospectors.
There is a growing demand for
molyddenite, and we should be
placed in a position to make the
best of our opportunities^
Speaking of the future of this
province the Nelson Miner says;
With plenty of smelters, a lead re
finery, a copper refinery, lhe mining
industry would, indeed, he in an
independent position and could
afford lo snap its lingers at the
American lead, smelling,and copper
trusts. We would then be perlectly
independent of them. We bave a
most wonderful mining country and
it is large enough and rich enough
lo be independent and lo stand on
its own base, We must have tin
courage of our convictions, take the
initiative more, have self reliance
nnd not be cast down or think the
world is coming I.) an end when
obstacles arc met, but meet them
manfully nnd in a li'.iic while we
will be able to show the world what
thc mining resources ol Prilish
Columbia really ure.
mine are anxiously looking lor such
a field as we have to offei ; thc lack
of a refinery which the government
clone can build and operale successfully, combatting the evil influences
of Uncle Sam's great private trust.-;
tbe lack of an up-to-date department
of mines, all hinging on the lack of
a' gool 'ive industrial government.
Oh for a man that will lead us 0111
ol this unpleasant predicament.
The situat on is plain. The mining
industry is this province's most
important industry. It must be
looked . after. And our only hope
lies in acquiring an equitable redistribution measure, giving us fair
representation ��� the fundamental
principle and basis of good goven -
ment���at the earliest possible date.
Then and not till then can the pres-
ent uncertain and unsettled futur.
be avoided.
All through tl'.e province tbere
are valleys containing lands of tbe
most fertile character, which is
nwaitihf* the i.ibor of the husbandman to yie'd its frtiils f. r the consumption of the people. In almost
all'cases where Ibis land is found,
the conditions exist for placing tbe
products of the soil on the markets
promptly and inexpensively, and the
market is one which is rapidly becoming greater and more assured,
it is a matter of regret, almost of
reproach, that so many of the inhabitants of tbe province who are
row earning a bare subsistence, in
in some cases a precarious one, in
tbe cities and towns as employees
in the various manufacturing1 industries should not have the enterprise
to locate on  these   rich unoccupied

According to the Now York Minim

Columbia lias eighteen silver-lead,

except the Cariboo atCamd McKinney,
paid dividends prior to 1800, and tha1
some of them in addition to tbe dividends pahl shareholders havo pale
largo sums to tlieir owners before the

In a recent sermon in Toronto, Dr
I.angtrv, a popular Anglican clergy
mon, said : "The worst of human
crimes, murdor. lias increased a thousand-fold. I am not thinking nf the
atrocious murders and moro atrocious
suicides which defile tho columns of
our own daily papers. I am thinking
of tlie wholesale murders lhat are
being perpetrated by wives who ought
to bo mothers, moving, many of them,
in the highest ranks of society. Tho
Vital statistics leave, no doubt that this
prime is being coir.mitteed on an enormous scale. Vou may depend upon It
that, in families where there nra no
children, or where thero are only one
or two children, in nine1 cases out of
ton th��re has boen murder. And the
mothers tbat ought to hive been will
(,o arraigned on tbe judgment day as
murderers, and thoir husbands, In
jnan.V oases,flu accomplices. Something
must bo done to stop thin enormous
Iniquity, which is the outgrowth of
what is called an educated age."
Tho editor of a country newspaper
has no business to make mistakes. He
has no business ever to get anything
into li Ih paper that people do not like.
Ho ought to know what would suit
ottdi Individual, or ho ought to tako
each item before it is published and let
tho person whom it concerns censor It.
An editor has plenty of time to do all
this, as all bo has to do is to'hunt news
and clean rollers, set type and clean
the floor, Hon short items and bustle
advertising, fold pnpors and write
wrappers, make paste and mail the
papers, talk to visitors and distribute
type, carry water and road proofs and
correct mistakes, hunt tho shears to
clip articles, dodge the bills und dun
tho delinquent, take cussings and tell
subscribers that ho needs money. An
editor has no business to make mistakes
while attending to little trifles like
those, and living ou oxtail soup, flavoring. Imagination, wearing old shoos
pod so collar, a patch ou tho equator'
of his pants, and at the same time turning a smiling countenance on the man
who tells him that his paper isn't

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.
B B C A USB
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
thc 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 man)' of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
w
H
Y
I
Because this is the point where
mining men coming into 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 first in Ferguson.
From here it: will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance o^ four miles.
Because when ihe railway reaches
the place where the mt'ines aire il
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
