ABOUT THAT RAILWAY]
President T. G. Shaunossy Explains tbe O. P. B.'s Position in Regard
to Lardeau's Long-Promised Railway.
FISH E1VEK DISTRICT NOTES.
mn
Surely the President Does Not Thoroughly Understand the Situation.
���The  Subsidy Was  Granted to  the Lardeau-Dunoan People
With Practically No Conditions for Its Construction.���
The Laurier Government at Fault foi the Absence
of a Railway at the Present Time.  But���.
Some days ago tlie Eagle wrote
President Shaughnessy as to the immediate necessity for a few miles of
railway between 'here and deopwater
landing on the Arm, thus avoiding tho
rook bluff work near Arrowhead for
the time being. The fact was pointed
out, that Trail was to be made the
smelting point for this distriot, and
that this short piece of road was all
that is really necessary this winter,
since it would tap the mines now ready
to ship ore steadily. The answer received is as follows:
Montreal, October 10.���My dear
Sir: Referring to your letter of the
12th inst., and the enclosed clippings.
I hope that in the near future the Lardeau district will have improved trans-
to close a deal with one or the other of
the electric tram people. We must
have a railway over this short haul,
and the sooner the better.
and ihe triiium: is bight.
The Tribune is the one paper in the
province that has always advocated
smelting the ores of our mines at home.
By doing so it has incurred ' 4 will
of tbe mine owners and tr justness
element whom the mint wnors control. But the fight for tho home
smeltor is gaining ground. The
Rossland Miner now says the people of
the province can only secure the full
measure of prosperity by keeping
within the province the hundreds of
thousands of dollars that arc annually
portation facilities.   At the last session |
of parliament, a subsidy was voted to I P'lid fc"'��*n transportation  companies
the Lardeau-Dunoan Railway company
for the construction of a line between
Arrowhead and Kootonay lako.   The
Lardeau company, like  the Kaslo &
Slocan, is not controlled by the C. P.
R,, and, naturally,  we felt  annoyed
that a subsidy should be given to an-
othor line when we had dono a considerable amount of  work  on  tho  same
route  without  receiving  government
aid .of  any  kind.   I  think, however,
that tlio Dominion government when
recommending tho subsidy  had   not
beon correctly informed as to the situation, and I have little doubt that next
session the voto will bo corrected. Tho
twenty miles to which you refer would
be very expensive indeed, and it may,
therefore, be found desirable to build
the other ond of the Hue first.   Yours
truly, T. G. Shaughnessy, President.
Tho Eagle is pleased to note that
President Shaughnessy "hopes" that
the     Lardeau    district    will    have
improved   transportation facilities in
the near future.   But the fact of the
matter is we have boen working hore
under difficulties and living on "hope"
for some years.   Something more substantial is necessaay in our business.
The district is making steady progress,
there is any amount of tonnage, both
ready  and  to  bo created  on   short
notice.
It Is a peculiar thing that "no subsidy" was thought of when there was a
valid probability of the K & S. getting
in horo ahead of the 0. P. It. They
movod heaven and earth to cut the K.
& S. out, and tho Eagle presumes
they succeeded. Tlie subsidy would
indeed lie a vory small Item if once tho
railway wero built, for wo havo the
business here for a railway.
The Kagle has no railway engineer
in Its employ, but It falls entirely to
soo how the short distance���18 miles
would do���between hero and water
navigation would bo vory expensive.
The survey already made follows a
nice open valley all tho way, no snow-
slides, oasy grades, no bridges of any
account, and very little rock work,
One slip is all that is required on the
Arm. The scows, tugs, etc., now in
use at Arrowhead would serve for this
additional short line. No regular
train service would be required. Just
any old thing that would pull ore out
would do, and there need be no expen
slvc outlay at all.
If we had this mueh at self, then an
opportunity would be afforded the
district to prove itself worthy of more
and greater things.
When It is so profltablon proposition
that already two electric tr.am companies are negotiating fpv the
Installation of a plant, thore must be
some good solid, reasons for the
presence of better nnd cheaper trans*
portation. If President Shaughnessy
**   will not aot, then let us do our utmost
and smelters for handling ores mined
in British Columbia.���Nelson Trihune.
DODGING THK REAL ISSUES.
It is curious the manner in which
the Canadian parties of the day persist
in failing to recognize the real issues
of the coming century. Tbe Liberal-
Conservative, wrapped in his cult of
the bye gone Macdonald, the Liberal,
blind in his worship of Laurier, are
arguing of matters of no interest except to a fossilized ward politician.
Their real distinctions are as the
distinctions of twedledum and tweedle-
dee, In the nursery story.���Industrial
World.
CAMBORNE, Oct. 27.���A party of capitalists, eight in number, conducted by
Andrew liosonborgor, arrived in Camborne (in thursduy evening and started
early Friday morning to inspect the
Eva group of claims, free milling properties. Your correspondent understands that they are so woll satisfied
with tho proposition that they intend
commencing operations directly with a
large force of men.
Messrs. Roberts and Leclcie-Ewing
paid a visit on Wednesday to tlio Imperial group adjoining tlie Eva, from
which they took samples, In some of
which the gold was discernablo to tlio
naked eyo.
A temporary bridge lias been placed
across Fish river at the end of the Fish
creek wagon road, which enables
saddle and pack horses to reach Camborne from Comaplix, thereby avoiding tho old switchback trail.
. Contractor Perrio is making good
progress with the cabin which he is
erecting for tho Eclipse Mining Co., in
spite of the adverse weather,
'ii fiew trail has been built to, and a
cabin built ou the Lucky Joo, where
the owners intend working all winter,
Mrs. Drew, who returned from a
short visit to the Halcyon Hot Springs
and Arrowhead, accompanied by Wi
B. Pool, came In over the now trail
recently completed from Thomson's
Landing to Camborne. They were the.
first to make the trip since communication has beon opened for horses.
With the exception of two mud holes,
whieh could he easily fixed, the trail is
good. With a little more work ex-
ponded on it, it could be widened into
a good wagon road, and it is to be
hoped It will be done noxt year.

PROPERTIES MAYBE ALL RIGHT
Camp was t!.m FJluek Warrior, nituatcd
ut the li-ad of Macdonald ereok. Tom
Horn staked it in the early'00'b and
has remained with it ever since. He
has now one of tlio most promising
properties iu this I'ainp. We had often
heard thc Black Warrior spoken of, by
thoso who yaw it, as having the best
surface shewing in this district. It
cam 3 our way to have tno opportunity
of looking over this property a couple
of weeks ago and really we were surprised that such a proposition, for so
long-, should have been overlooked by
men representing capital.
Tho owner rightly considered his
pioperty too good to be handed ovor to
the tender mercies of any stock-jobbing
concern for a small cash consideration
and stock, nnd as he has the best of
reasons-: for having faith in it, he can
well afford to bide his  time.
When mining men have picked up
the available properties within easy
range, they will get over their reluct*
aney tn go out of their way a littlo and
will extend their field of operations to
n larger circle here.

Tlio actual 'mineral in ono pound of
ore picked out by hand by .1. W.
McCrossan and given to S. Shannon,
Li. A., for a minature'smelter test,
gave results that speak volumes for the
group. Tho exact values extracted
from the one single pound wore: Silver
,348 oz., at 6*1 cents1 per oz., gives
$.22272; lead, .42!) lb., at 4-1 cents,
$.01823 ; copper, .058 lb., ut IG-J cents,
$.00955. Total value in 1 lb. .$25052, or
the total valuo of a ton of such oro
yields $501.04. The chunk of lead
filled a small crucible,- the copper
looked somewhat like a small nugget
of gold, while the silver button was
not unlike a two-bit piece. To look at
it starts one thinking; over a fraction
of half a pound of pure mineral from a
pound of ore. The amount from a ton
nearly sludgers a man. And t'nero is
plenty of such oro iti tbo many small
veins below the ledgo proper on the
Chicago, one of the Metropolitan
group. Tho rest of thc calculating can
bo done next season wben tho new
syndicate owners eommeneo shipping.
The smelter returns will do the rest.
Excavation work is now in progress
under tbe main building of tho Hotel
Ferguson for the purpose of putting in
a hot air furnace to heat tho entire
building. A brick chimney is being
built as well. Whon tho bar room is
completed, the reading room fitted and

Companies are Questionable.
Tho Eagle will admit that it has
been imposed on in a fow instances by
ono or two raining companies in tills
district. But any paid "boost" we
over published was in our advertising
columns at regular rutos, and the
minute we discovered that thc "rich,
safe Investment" was not so golden an
opportunity to becomo wealthy as
depicted in the advt, it was instantly
discontinued ami the company notified.
Tho troublo the minors and storekeepers had to ciillect their money, tho
exaggerated reports of tho property
now on IIlo in this olllco and tho
general concensus of opinion given
personally .to tho Eaole by men who
actually worked on the property, leads
us to tho opinion that things are not as
thoy seem. Tho property itself may

has a distinct wall about sixty feet
from one of the several strata of lime
which run through that belt of country.
A wide bell, of slate forms the contact
along this wall, ami tho parts of the
ledge along tlio slate consists largely
of quartz. The whole of this strip of
sixty feet, however, lying between the
slate and tlie lime seems to be ledge
matter and consists of graphite shale
with stringers and lenticular raa.-ses of
quartz throughout.
Considerable prospecting work has
been done along the lino of stripping
tho ledge and this work has uncovered
tbe outcrop of a magnificent ore chute
some llfty or Blxtj feet in length and
from two lo throe feet in width situated
along the contact of the lodge witli
the slate.
Mr. Horn started a tunnel on the
ledge below to tap this ore chute ut
some depth, ami at the time of onr
visit was In about 200 ft, and getting
near lo his objective point. In the
last ten foot of his worlr, ore has boon
coming in which has been very
encouraging, anil them is soarcolj any
doubt lint that with 10 01'60 ft. more
work on that tunnel and some cross-
cutting, Tom will have attained the
object of his work,

A good pack trail leads from Forguson to the Black Warrior cabin, so
that, although on tho Duncan slope, the

The Duncan, however, Is tho natural

during tho past soa.-on is now only a
short distance from tho mouth of
Macdonald creek. Tho advent of the
K. & S. railroad up the Dunoan or even
a wagon road will ut once put an end
to the poriod of waiting and tlie bond
of Macdonald creek will be the scene
of a busy milling eamp for the surface

large rich bodies of ore.

IJ'IIY   INDEPENDENT?
"The most newsy and best printed
paper  in   Revelstoko   riding  is  the
Eagle, published at Ferguson, a little
town  in Trout Lako mining division.
Hiring   the   provincial    campaign   it
supported ''Tom" Taylor, tlio nominee
u, tho V.'llsou party-line Conservatives,
and Mr. Taylor was eloeted to represent  the   riding   in   tho   legislative
assembly.     Mr.   Taylor,   during  the
session of the legislature which closed
in September last, did not profess to be
anything  elso  than  a   Conservative.
The Eaolk, notwithstanding it helped
olect Mr. Taylor  as   a  Conservative,
now says that Mr. Taylor must voto for
Chris.  Foley, the Independent Labor
candidate for tho house of commons, or
his "name will bo Dennis" if he again
oilers himself as a oandidate for oflice.
It is generally believed that Revelstoko
riding is in Canada, and that -Canada
is a free  country; but, according to
the EAQLB, this belief is based on a
misapprehension,     Mr.  Taylor   and
others who have political convictions
must not, on  peril  of  their  political
lives, exercise them contrary to the
views of the ;'men, who for tho time,
happen to be adherents of the Indepcn
dent Labor party.   Were adherents of
the Liberal party or tho Conservative
party to declare that if Labor party
men dared exercise the right to voto as
they saw lit they would be made suffer
penalty, what a how!  would bo raised
by the Labor party newspapers.   This
Ib a free country, and the Labor party
m.is; stiu I  on  its merits, just as tin
other political parties do.   The people
of Kootenay will not be bulldozed Into
supporting a candidate simply because
that candidate happens   to   represent
one class, however numerous that class
may be in certain localities In the district."
The abovo is an editorial note from
ths Nelson Tribune of a recent date.
While tho EAGLE firmly believes that
Uu, Tribune is a friend of labor and
always has been, wo can see no reason
for its "strictly independent" course tit
tlie present time.
tf the Tribune has no uso for either
of tlio old parties why not help to
found a party which will finally gain
tho balance of power in tho house of
commons and bring about the legislation desired. No man in British Columbia knows tho needs of this country
bettor than John Houston, nor is there
a person more fitted to help brine
about the progressive measures needed
than John Houston. But, to the
Eagle's way of thinking, Mr. Houston
is missing a golden opportunity by
not supporting the Labor candidate
om and out.
('In is. Foley's platform is broad
enough for all classes, It is far from
being In the .-"iii I. interests of any one
class. Mr. I luusion already advocates
tlie major portion of the platform, Why
nol come out flat-footed for the Labor
candidate, and let us try to elect a man
who will endeavor to bring the desired
legislation about ?
If the Tribune is sincere In its advocacy of certain reforms why doesn't it
back It homo now that the opportunity
is afforded. The Tribune surely does
not expect any relief at tho hands of
the old parties, so what other course is
there open but to oioet a man who will
help to control the balance of power
and force tho party in power to action,
rather than election promises only.
Tom Taylor, M. L. A., may too be a
friend of Labor's causo; but since tho
oid parties have done nothing
but talk of dead and -scarecrow issues,
avoiding entirely the real issues, what
is .thore loft to do but to oppose thorn
both and support a platform whicli
advocates the measures most vital to
tho people as a whole.
If we do not succeed in electing Mr.
Foley we will at least havo the satisfaction of getting recognizance from
tho candidate elected. It will shew that
evory  man   who  voted  for Foley no
electing men who will act in tlieir interests. And if men already elected
for that purpose do not do thoir duty
thon tlie electors have a perfect right
to choose and elect men who will. Tho
othor classes, if such thore be, can and
what Labor purposes doing is to
have looked out for their interests, and
elect men who will devoto thoir time
to securing progressive, reforms���in
tlie wholo people's interests.
It doesn't require bulldozing; just an
honest straight vote from tlio people
most interested. The ballot is the
best weapon to secure equal rights and
the Labor party purpose using it
frsely hereafter. If John Houston,
Tom Taylor and others want to be in
tlie swim lot them east their lot with
tlio Labor party and help to accomplish its cr.ds. Tf not they must needs
sink into the cold sea of oblivion.
If tho Topic is not with us it is
against us. JJut no better indication
of tlio Labor party's success could be
found In this district, Who over saw
tlio Topio ou the right or winning side
anyway.
The Labor party will stand on its
merits; and if the mull who havo condemned both the "groat" parties for
the past two or more years mako use
of tho opportunity now in sight, it will
not only stand but win on its merits.

do more than either a Liberal or Conservative. With A. W. Puttee, Ralph
Smith, Mr. Maxwell, Dr. H. G. Hariri avo, Hugh Stevenson, Chris, Foley
and perhaps one or two others in the
house of common.-* they are almost
certain to control tho balance of power.
Then either of the old partloa can bo
forced to give the people what they
really want���more progressive legislation.
The EAOLE is only too happy to
learn that the Topic is not guilty of
conspiring with the Sliver Belt company to boost Its property at so much
per annum. The Topic has been
bought up politically before now, and
of course thore was a grave suspicion
that such was the ease in this instance.
Tho EAGLE is very glad indeed that it
was mistaken.

When the Eagle has to sloop to a
man like Manager Didisheim, simply
because, he imagines he's thc whole
earth and no citizen of this country
has a right to speak, and with whom
tbe Topic is so happy to curry favor; or
cling to a political party which sells
senatorshipa at $10,000 each and has
nothing hut a record of unbroken
promises, it will discontinue business,
So long as there are newspaper men
in this country who will cast principle
to tho forewimls and boost for this
company or that party, with tho fond
hope of getting easy money, just so
loner will thore be corruption in high
places.
John Houston does not tako the
Eagle to task for the cause of Thos.
Taylor particularly, for just before the
elections the Tribune prodtctod "Tom
Taylor is a doud duck in Rovnlstoke
riding." Mr, Houston just happens i"
he in tho Bame fix as Mr, Taylor, and
where there is one point explained
away by the Tribune for Thos. Taylor there is two for John Houston, In
fact .Mc Houston is In a worse pro-
dlcaraontj he having attended the
Conservative convention whioh nominated MaoNeill, while Thos. Taylor Is
baking tho very wtae course of at least
kee pi u jar mum, and Mr. Houston's powwow only shows tho weakness of his
own position.
The Topic iriiiiitB that "a friend of
labor" should and will veto and work
for Chris. Foley. This plain declaration by the Tonic at once decides that
it is antagonistic to labor's interests
aud desires to make it known. Thi?
course, alone; with roasting Lardoau
prospectors to a brown, must be pleasing to the citizens of the town in which
it is published.
! c^^^^X^^^^MM^S^^ 8
%:*mwm'$&^j��m>'$
It is quite truo that tho EAGLE
helped to elect Thos. Taylor as ft Conservative. And bo it said to Mr,
Taylor's credit he ban fulfilled every
singlo promise he made to the electors
before his election. At tbat timo
there was no choice; either Joe Martin
or tho Conservatives were apparently
to bo on top. (Who ever thought that
Dunsmuir was to come out ahead.) In
tho absence of no Labor candidate tho
Eagle was justified in choosing the
lesser evil and'helping to olect Thos.
Taylor. And tho Nelson Tribune will
most likely ace thc same "Tom" Taylor out an a straight Labor, candidate
at tbo next provincial election!). Can
the same be said of John Houston?
Instead of saying that a man is tho
creature of circumstances, it would be
nearer the mark to say that man is tho
architect of circumstances. Tt is
character which builds an existence
out of circumstance. From tho samo
material one man builds palaces,
another hovels; one warehouses,
another villas. Bricks and mortar arc
mortar and bricks until the architect
can mako them something elso.
On March 24th tho Topic said : "Tho
Silvor Belt, ono of the richest prospects ever opened up in this country,
will resume operations shortly. This
property is located on Brown's ck., a
tributary of Gainer ck., and astonished
tho mining world lastjsummor because
of the richness of Its ore���$532 in silvor, load, copper and gold having beon
received." The Topio forgot to mention how much ore there Was. Does it
really believe they are waiting for a
railway to commence shipping.

United Hatters of North America
Worthy of Careful Consideration
By All Classes.
IT'S WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT
And the Old Parties Are Unequal
to the Occasion.
To the Elootorsol Yale-Cariboo :
In requesting your support to my candidacy
tor tlio Dominion House of Commons, it is due
to you thut I give publio expression to my
vlowson thosovoral planks ot tho platform of j
thu Independent Ubor Party:
1. Compulsory education has become ti
recognized nocossityin most countries nnd as
suoh has my hearty endorsement.
2. Legal work day, s hours.
Modem Invention has ao enormously Increased the productive power of mini that lifm wants
can be supplied with a fraction of the time and
effort horotoforo nooessary for that purpose.
Labor aa well as capital should benefit by these
changed conditions, The 8-hour law, is a stop
ln that direction and I shall heartily endorse
any legislation look in;- to that end.
8, Government Inspection of industries.
Under modern economic conditions the management of Industrial concerns figure on result?1, not the methods by which thoy are to be
obtained. An ovorsupplied labor market en-
able.i them to Impose on employes any conditions they may doom necessary. Protest as a
rule means dismissal from service aud probable want to their 111tic ones. In throwing tho
strong arm of the law about those children of
misfortune yon aro simply following the teachings of the meek and lowly Jesus, who said
suffer the little ones to come unto me, for of
suoh is the kingdom of heaven.
4.   Abolition of contract system.
The abuses that have grown up under the
contract system as outlined in the first Issue
of the Dominion LaborGafsetteshould convince
even the hide-bound piirtfzau of the necessity
of tho enactment of such a law.
6. Public ownership of franchises.
Our experience in the control of the postal
department, public schools, public highways,
municipal lighting plants and [waterworks is
sufficient ground for the extension of the samo
system to railroads, telegraph, telephone, and
express business. Tho experience of people in
New Zealand, Australia, Germany and else*
where has demonstrated that thoso lunations
can be; performed by tho government with a
very great advantage to the pooplo and 1 most
heartily endorse legislation looking to that
end.
fi. Prohibition of Asiatic emigration and the
educational test.
Thc presence here In large numbers of this
non-assfmllating race robs Canadian labor of
Its birthright livery Mongol binding upon
our shored lossonS rather than increases our
population. The white laborer which be replaces would ns a rule marry and sottlo among
us,Increasing tho population by al loasl three.
This means to tho merchant less mouths to
feed, and loss backs to clothe, to tlio doctor ;
lees demands for his services, to the transportation eonipanlos loss traffic, to tlie dentist less
teeth to till, to thc mechanic less buildings to
erect, to tho real estate dealer less demand for
property Including legs force for ihesame, to
the'farmer leas sale tor produce, to tho newspaper man less papers lo be sold, to the
preacher smallor congregations, and to the
bootblack fewer shoes to shine. Their presonoo
works injury to all branches of tho economic
system. I oppose their coming hero on thc
same grounds I would oppose, tho taking of
more passengers Into an open boat alroady
loaded to tho sinking line In mid-Pacific.
Every Chinaman occupying a position in domestic services interferes with the natural laws
ns applying to iho InduBtrlnl body, robbing our
women of employment naturally belonging to
them to (lieextent that f��r every Chinaman so
employed some one's sister or daughter Is
driven to prostitution, evolving a we problem destined to breed sea of blood nnd that
will some day mantle tho Canadian cheek
with a blnBh for his counlryip shame,
7. Abolition of child labor.
An economic system that drives the child
from the cradle to the factory to compete with
Its own father ia certainly tho legitimate child
of an industrial sysiem having greed as Its
basic principle, Legislation along 1'nos opposed to thia will receive my hearty support.
8. Abolition of the$250 deposit.
Uniler conditions where nil arc amenable to
thc law and assume the responsibility of defending tho country's dag nnd institutions all
BhOtlld bo entitled alike to aspire to the high-
ost position In lhe gift of their countrymen
Without b ilng taxed for tl.c privilege Of fiQ doing.   ! wouldropi al that law.
ti.  Compulsory arbitration.
Compulsory arbitration as applied In New
Zealand looms upon tho horizon of progress
not as a dream, bm osa practical method of
reconciling the conflicting Interests of labor
and capital, and Is dcsllned, I think, In tho
near future. If applied, to proven! thoso periodical Industrial wars and bind a security to nil
branches of buslnosa such as is impossible
under existing cnndltlous und an such receives
my hoarty approval,
