The Citizens of Fersruson do Honor
to the Chief Mining Man of
the Lardeau.'
Tbe Quest of the Evening Deals
With the Subjeot of The Mining
Record's Critioisms,
A banquet and meeting of the mining
and business men of tho Lardeau took
place last Saturday night at the Windsor Hotel, Ferguson, in honor of-Mr.
W. B. Pool. Mr. G. B Batho occupied
the chair, and Mr. A. J. Gordon acted
as vice-chairn.an. The after-dinner
speeches were.excellent, and servo to
* indicate the strong feeling existing in
the district against the misrepresenta-
of the Lardeau which have boen made
Mr. Batho, in a short speech, said
tnat having met thero as loyal subjects
of a loyal province, be had much
pleasure ln proposing tho toast of "The
King." This being responded to in a
hearty manner, Mr. Sutherland briefly
replied to the toast of "Our Commercial Interests" by savingtho business
interests of tbe Lardeau wero so bound
up with tho mining interests that he
would occupy no time in making a
speech, as there were gentlemen present far more competent than he to discuss such a topic. In reply to thn toast
of "Bankingand Financial Interests,"
Mr. Macdonald, manager of tnn Ferguson branch of the Imperial Bank of Canada, said tbat so far as bis experience
went, tho people of Ferguson and the
Lardeau generally were in a prosperous financial condition. His board of
directors had the greatest faith in tho
Mr. Pool on rising was greeted by
heartyand'prolongedcheering. When
this bad subsided, he thanked those
present for the kindly manner In which
they had received his name. He said,
"I see a number here who have eaten
from my pack, and I have eaten from
theirs; we have slept under the one
blanket, and have tramped the hills to*
gether not only In British Columbia
but in tho wilds of California, Montana,
Idaho and Washington. I see businoss
men who helped me ln my early struggles In the Lardeau, and I see goodwill
and friendship depicted on every countenance hero. Mr. Chairman, I wish
tonight that I were an orator, that I
might havo the language to express my
appreciation of the honor you have
conferred on me this evening. I shall
not take up your time by referring to
the provincial mineralogist or the Mi*
ning Hecord ; we havo something more
important to occupy our minds. We
are living today in what I believe is the
richest undeveloped mining section in
the world. Wo have surface showings
such as the world has never seen, but
these showings are only indications of
the great wealth which lies burled in
old mother earth. To make mines requires capital, and it has been my aim
to interest outside capital in the riches
of the Jjardeau, and I am proud to say
that all the men who helped me in my
lirst ventures havo re-invested part of
thoir profits in tho Great Northern
Mines, Limited. Fate seems to have
worked against the development of this
section. The Slocan boom, the Boss-
land boom, and then the Klondike boom
all detracted from the Lardeau's
chances. Then thero was our lack of
transportation and the uncertainty of
the price of silver. These .conditions
worked against the Lardeau and made
it very difficult to interest capital.
There are people who profess fear that
this section may have a false boom,
Mr. Chairman, I claim it Is Impossible
for tho Lardeau to have a false boom ;
Mure of this country.   The next toast
proposed was " Mining Interests," and
was responded to by Messrs. 0. Morgan ' thero is room in the Lardeau for the in*

He could assure them that it would be

honor to represent, to lot its subscribers

Dr. Newcombe responded to tho toast
of "Tho Learned Professions" He
expressed the greatest esteem for Mr
Pool, and characterized the statements
of tbo provincial mineralogist, with
respect to the Lardeau, as detrimental
to the Interests of the whole province,
Messrs. Benson, Lebeau and Barber
replied in short and appropriate torms
to the toast of "The Ladles," after
which Mr. Day and Mr. K. M. Morgan
of Poplar wero called upon for speeches.
Both these gentlemen expressed their
great confidence in the Lardeau mines.
The proceedings then terminated by
the hearty singing of the National

partially as a protest against the un
warranted attack made on_ Mr. Pool
by the B. C. Mlning.Beco'rd. Tha. paper takes exception to the promotion
methods of Mr, Pool at Poplar creek.
We know whnjl has beon done In Ferguson by tho same methods, and aro
proud of it." _]Je referred to Mr. Pool's
enterprise in exhibiting the ores of the
Lardeau ip different parts of Canada
and tho United States. Continuing, he
snid, "Mr, Pool never yet turned a
deaf oar to a prospector who was in
hard luck, and we are proud to have
him represent lis,-despite tho B. C. Mining Beoord to the contrary. Gentlemen,' I ask you to rise and drink the
health of a man who never went back
on ��friend."
New York, Dec. 23.���Tho World
prints the following special from
Washington: " Tho administration believe that war between Bussiaanil Japan is Imminent. The beginning of hostilities within a short time would not
surprise tbo president or secretary
Hay. Their conviction that war cannot
long be avoided Is based on reports (rom
minister Conger and from other sources
which fow people bave seen. Those
reports show that Bussia, whoso demands have dally grown more exacting
and insistent, is determined to force
Japan to doelaro war without delay.
If the acceptance of the czar's challenge is not as prompt as could bo desired, advices to the state department
show that Russia will begin hostilities.
War within a fow days would bo a fulfilment of the predictions of minister
Conger, and would be just what the
British foreign olgce looks for."
Berlin, Dec. 23.���ThoGennan foreign
office in estimating the probabilities of
war in tho far east, fixes its attention
on Great Britain at this moment rather
than Japan, for it is recognized that
Japan is only waiting for Great Britain
to give the word 'before beginning hostilities. A new and even portentous
element in the situation, as it Is looked
upon here, Is the rising feeling in Great
Britain that Russia mustiyield or Japan ought to light hor. The Associated
Press learns from the highest diplomatic source tbat thc German government, while still refusing to believe
that war is certain, is convinced now
that if war between Bussia and Japan
comes, Great Britain will take part in
it because the British government looks
upon war as possibly tho only means ot
saving and re-establishing her position
in tho east. Sir Frank Lascelles, tho
British ambassador, who returned here
three days ago. is understood to have
imparted his impression unofficially to
the German government that tho British cabinet apprehended thut war
would result tf Bussia persisted In the
present attitude toward Japan.
Londou, Dec. 23,���Baron Huyaslii,
the .Japanese minister here, in an interview witli an Associated Pross reporter
said nothing lias actually been arrived
at between Great Britain and Japan re
tho course of action Grout Britain will
pursue in tho event of a l'aisso-Japanese
war, boyond the stipulations of the
Anglo-Japanese treaty. Tbo minister,
whilo admitting some such arrangement for tho support of Japan by Great
Britain, provided that Japan agrees to
accept a certain specified compromise,
as surmised by tlio German umbassy,
fails to sob how Japan's demands can
bo moderated.
A New Railway.
A St. Paul's dispatch says: It Is announced hero on high official authority
that president J. .1. Hill's engineers
have found a satisfactory route from
Prlnooton to tho coast, and that tho
Kootenay lino he has had in mind for
two years will bo built, running in a
northerly direction to Princeton, B.C.,
and then in a more southerly courso to
tido water. The lino will follow tho
Similkameen river to Princeton. Tho
difficulty has beon to find low grades
wost of Princeton.
Tho official statomont is as follows:
"The lino will bo an oro und coal
lino, and tho grades must bo low, or
Mr. Hill will not build. Such grades
havo been found. Thoy aro lower than
thoso of tho Canadian Pacific through
Kicking horse pass. Mr. Hill is now
in a position to go after a tremendous
amount of Canadian business, for which
lie can afford- after the lino is built to
mako a lower rate than tho Canadian
Pacific can afford.
"It may bo interesting to stato that
thero will bo a kind of rovonge in this.
Tho Canadian Pacific onco blocked a
Kootenay project of Mr. Hill's in thc
Canadian parliament, and asked $3,000
000 in subsidy and 2,000,000 acres of
land. The project partly covored tho
same lino Mr. Hill now intends to build*
The building of this' lino moans that
Mr. Hill believes that there is traffic to
support a lino which tbo Canadian Pacific will uot build without an enormous
" 1 am informed that the lino will be
built within a year or ao. The matter,
as I am advised, now rests almost en
tlroly with what the decision in the
Northern securities case is. This decision will moan tlio expenditure of
millions in Great Northern construction
if it is favorable."

Sir Robert Hart, director of Chinese
imporial maritime customs, said today
that he feared China would be the chief
���sufferer should war occur, for sho
might be ground between the two mill-
stonos. Tbe decadence of tlio Chinese
government was never more complotcly
displayed than in these times, when hor
ministers go from legation to legation,
imploring other governments to holp
China, without any thought of China
helping herself. There Is absolutely
no' strong man among the ruling ministers.
Antipathies of Great Men.
It is a natural human trait to desire
kinship with great minds, nud partly
for this reason tlio world loves to hear
of the little weaknesses, inconsistencies,
and illogical prejudices of its intellectual giants. The following/then, a carefully compiled and, so far as the writer
knows, absolutely authentic list of the
antipathies of certain past masters may
prove to bo of general interest:
Shakespeare, it seems, disliked a
forced abstention from victuals.
Lord Clie3terlield hated to bave tlie
cliair upon which ho was just sitting
down withdrawn from under him.
Tho Iron Duke (and it may bo remarked in passing that Lord Roberts
of our own day'has a*similar aversion)
would grow quite uneasy if shut up in
tbe same room with a mad dog.
Schillor would nover, if ho could
avoid it, write with a broken nib.
Carlylo never liked being alluded to
as a "blithering idiot."
Keats would go out of his way to
avoid a lunatic with a knife.
Faraday, tho great chemist, disliked
the sensation of nitric acid on his hands.
Mticoady had a groat disrelish for

The Snowshoo Gold and Copper
Mines, Limited, uud tho British Columbia Coppor Co., tho latter owning the
Mother Lodo mine aud smeltor, have
been consolidated, an arrangement by
which tlio ores of both mines will be
shipped to and reduced at tho Greenwood smelter.
According to tho circular issued by
tbe management of tho British Columbia Coppor Co, to tho stockholders outlining tbe plan, it is proposed that the
stock of tho company and other assets
aro to be secured by a now British corporation with a total authorized capital
of ��1,000,000 or more.
The new plan is tlie outcome of negotiations for tho purchase of the Snow-
shoe Gold and Copper mines, Ltd, The
capital of tho new British company is
to be usod as follows:
For all stock of B.C. Copper... ��015,000
For stock of Snowshoe* Co.,
(capital ��200,000)  225,000
Treasury  100,000
Mendelssohn did not like tho sound
of a finger-null being drawn across a
slate. A thumb-nail caused bim similar disquiet.
Disraeli would walk about or stand
rather than sit upon a freshly-paintod
Wo could supplement tbis list considerably by instances which have
como undor ouY own personal observation. For example, tbe editor always
gets hot wheu you forget to pay your
subscription. It seems to hurt his feelings. It has also been remarked that
another prominoot citizen of this town
has a distinct aversion to hitting his
thumb with shammer. Thoso trifling
inconsistencies which groat minds havo
in common with each other aro very
curious, and worthy of close investigation.
  i, uoo.ooo
It is expected that about ��50,000 of
the treasury stock will be sold to raise
new working capital.
Tho now corporation is to lie governor the first year by soven directors,
three chosen by the Snowshoe company,
threo by tho B.C. Copper company, and
one by agreement. After tlio first year
stockholders will elect the hoard.
Stockholders in tlie British Columbia
Coppor Co. are invited to doposit their
stock on ot* beforo January 11, 10C4,
with the Continental Trust Co., ovory
sharo to receive its just share of new
stock but not less than 2 1-5 new shares
for ono old. If tho plan is not consummated by March 15, depositors will receive their deposited stock. President.
Underwood of tlio B. (,'. Copper Co.
says: "Tho consolidation '-.ill bring
your property up to the maximum of
operating efficiency and economy, by
providing a greatly increased and certain daily supply of ore and distributing
tho fixed expenses over this tonnage |
it will raiso tho average value of the
ore treated, as the Snowshoe oro is of a
higher grade, chiefly in gold : it should
thus increase the revenues more than
in proportion to tlio increase of capital.
It will distribute und so diminish the
risk of stoppage by accident; by its
provision for ample working capital it
will pay not only for the present Im.
proven.cuts, but not using earnings for
theso purposes, leaving them freo for dividends, It will nt onco afford a wider
market for the company's shares, both
in Loudon and New York, and the new
company Bhould occupy, at once, a com
mantling position in the coppor field of
British Columbia."

The Xmas holidays which are
now on seem to have brought unusual cheerfulness anil goodwill to
the people of the province of British
Columbia. Whether or not it is on
account ot God's tjootlneiis during
the past twelve months in caring for
his people, or from tbe improved
conditions that are felt aud seen to
exist everywhere throughout the
province, and an anticipation of
good and prosperous times in the
ne.-ir future. At any rate, the people as a whole are cheerful, prosperous and happy, and one has but to
take a little run through thc country or read the papers to notice the
vast improvement everywhere manifest over this time one year ago.
An unusual number of people have
"gone visiting," to the east, lo
California', to Europe, and tp the
sister towns of the province, which
in itself bespeaks prosperity. Then
when one takes up the exchanges,
it is astonishing to find what a large
number of newspapers have got otil
special holiday numbers, and these
of high merit. Then again most of
the papers have an unusual amount
of advertising space occupied hy the
merchants of the community where
the paper is published, and the ads.
have a bright look and a prosperous
rhig. This all goes to prove that
the people are prosperous, or that
they feel that they are on the eve of
prosperity. Everything goes to
show also that this is correct. In
the first place we have a good solid
government in power, which encourages people to take hold of new
enterprises, and also to improve and
enlarge what we have ; for we feel
that the country is saved, reckless
government is at an end, and nol
only will local men of mentis loosen
tlie grip on their money, but outside capital will flow in to develop
our intent resources. Our chief Industries, mining and lumbering, are
now on a better looting than tliey
have been for years. The markets
are belter, tbe labor question shows
no cause for anxiety, and such advancement has been made in equipment for mines nnd mills Mint everything along this line looks most
favorable lor the country, and (or
the people who arc now interested,
artel lor those who may come.
As we go to| press, the new year
of 1904 is about to be ushered in,
amid, in many places, the ringing of
bells, the singing of men and women and the prayers of God's people. The .year that is waning has
been a fairly good and important
period in the world's history. In
the twelve months there have been
some important changes, yet nothing has transpired of an extraordinary nature, and the time maybe said to have been a chapter in
the world's history minus any dark
'���oderlined   passages  or  startling
paragraphs. The year shows practically a clean record as regards
bloodshed by means of the awful
wars that usually blot the pages of
history. Numerous catastrophes
marked the year's record, and in
many of these a great loss ot precious life resulted. Mortality (rom
the action of Nature and its forces
was extremely large, while that resulting from artificial forces was
about the average.
The main thing about the year
1903, it was a fruitful one ns regards the growth of our fair Dominion, and what is better, during this
period the whole ol Canada experienced what seems an entrance upon
an era of abundant prosperity.
In conclusion, we wish all our
readers a bright, happy New Year,
and we trust they may all have a
taste of the prosperity that we anti-
pate for 1904,
In this issue will be fonnd a report of the public school entertainment and a financial statement,
which we believe will prove very
gratifying reading. The school is
in excellent standing, and the finances as shown by the statement are
greatly improved. Running a
school in Ferguson has proven an
up-hill task on account of the few
pupils available, there being too few
to obtain the needful government
assistance for building. However,
the way our town has grown for the
past two months leads one to hope
that the difficulty will be overcome
by spring.
