The Ferguson Hospital
a Useful Institution-
Prevents Much Suffer
ing and Inconvenience.
As A. M. Craig, Chas. Mackay and
Beveral other men were driving from
Beaton to Ferguson on Thursday night,
AuguBt 13th, and they were near the
Adams ranch, the king holt of the
wagon broke and the wagon and occupants went over the embankment. The
wagon turned completely over, and
when those who were able picked themselves up they found that a front wheel
of the wagon rested on Mackay's chest.
On being extricated the unfortunate
man was found to be badly hurt, and
he was taken immediately to the Lardeau Miners' Union hospital at Ferguson. Dr. W. E. Newcombe, the resident phvsieian, found on examination
that there were three ribs broken, as
well as the body being otherwise severely bruised. The other occupants
of the vehicle were more fortunate and
escaped with bruises and a bad shaking
up.
We learn that Mr. Maokay is doing
nicely and lt will be only a matter of a
few weeks before he is around again,
providing he continues to Improve as
he has since reaching tbe hospital.
"flILLY"  KEARNS'   NARBOW  ESOAPE.
While hauling a big load of slabs
near the Great Western Mines* saw
mill on Saturday morning, W. Kearns,
tho teamster, was sitting on the load
when one of the front stakes broke,
precipitating the unfortunate driver
to the ground in an instant. He fell
immediately before a front wheel
which passed over his body at the lower abdomen. Tho poor fellow was
brought to tbe hospital at once, ac
companied by Dr. Newcombe, who had
beeu summoned by telephone. The
Doetor found on examination that the
escape from instant death was almost
miraculous, for bad the wheel passed
over the body two or three inches
higher it would have cut the body
asundur. We are glad to say that
while Mr. Kearns is badly bruised, the
Doctor believes ho wlil be around
again in a few days,
"DOC." MELDRUM'S ANKLE BROKEN.
Gordon M. Meldrum has the goneral
sympathy of the community in conse-
quenco of the painful accident that befell hlra on Wednosday evening at
Five-Mile.
He was getting down from his high
wagon seat, and alighting on a small
rock whicli turned under him, causing
both bones of tho ankle to break.
"Doc." drives a string team of six
horses and had Just unloaded at the
concentrator Bite at Five-Mile and was
about to return to town when the acci
dent happoned. "Doc." is a popular
fellow and will bo missed for a time
from Ferguson's daily routine of activ-
ity-      	
Formers Installing Trams.
B. C. Riblet, the well known mining
engineer of Spokane, and Nelson, B.
C, has turned a well known mining do-
vice to the benefit of the farmers of
Idaho, says the Seattle P.-I. The aeriaf
tramway is a familiar feature of almost
every mining camp, out lt is something
of a novelty to see that appliance used
for hauling wheat down the mountain
sides. Mr. .Riblet, who makes a specialty of building aerlaf tramways, Is
now constructing two above the Clearwater, near Lewiston, Idaho.  When
soen at tho Northern last night, Mr.
Ribletsaid:
"I am now building two aerial tramways for the farmers of Lewiston, Idaho. They aro not quite the Ilrst of
their kind, as I put two ln last year in
other parts of the state, but tliey are
still a very unusual feature of a farming district. In this particular place
the farms are situated far up the mountain side, and owing to the state of thc
roads it is almost impossible to get the
crops to market,
"For instance, with anothor harvest
coming on, there is still a portion of
last year's wheat that has not been got
down the mountain side. Hauling crops
in that violnity Ib very expensive work,
especially owing to the fact that part of
the way the grain has to be hauled on
sleds and then transferred on wagons.
With the aerial tram, all you have to
do is to load the buckets, aDd gravity
does the rest.
"Mining in British Columbia is recovering somewhat from its long de
presslon. The Dominion government
has granted a ,8500,000 bonus to bp dl*
vided among the refiners ot lead. I
forget the exact .figures, but it is a
bonus of so much per pound on all lead
smelted in the province. This has stim*
ulated the lead industry, and among
other properties I hear that the big
East Kootenay silver-lead mine, the
St. Eugene, Is going to start up at
onco.    ���    ''
"Perhaps the greatest mining activ*
ity just now is being displa/od in what
is known as the Lardeau district, between the head of Kootenay lake aud
the main line of the Canadian Pacific.
I am now putting in four tramways for
mines there, tho Sliver Cup, Nettie L.,
Eva and Oyster-Criterion. These prop
erties are all concentrating, and reduction works will soon be put in.
There is also a great deal of development work going on in tbe less well
known mines of the district."
Unfortunate Martinique.
At Washington, on-'August 11, the
state department received a dispatch
from Consul Newell at Fort du France,
Martinique, dated August 10, confirming the press report of tbe disastrous
oyclone ln that island. The dispatch
says: "A terrific cyclone visited the
entire island at midnight on Saturday:
great damage was done to drops and
fruits; many houses unroofod. Trees
two foet thick uprooted. One killed.
Consulate intact. At Trinito, seven
killed. Many houses destroyed. Smaller towns damaged. All tho villages of
Tivoli, Lahaye and Reculee are destroyed, rendering 5,000 sufferers of
last year's catastrophe again homeless.
Reports from the interior of the island
are indefinite, Great discouragement
exists."
At Latta, on August 11, a violent
shock of earthquake which lasted a
minute, was felt at 5:33 In the morning.

Discoveries at Poplar
and Rapid Creeks-Important Finds Everywhere in the Lardeau.
Robert Burns is back from Rapid
creek camp. He had charge of the
work two years ago in constructing the
Lardo railroad through tbis section
andc amped near tho Lucky Jack lead
with his men.
He has located three claims on Rapid creek which all bave nice leads and
gold can be panned out of all of them.
He speakB very highly of tho showings
and says they must be seen for tbeir
extent and richness to be realized. He
thinks Rapid creek just as good as
Poplar and according to a report that
reached town Tuesday of a big strike
"Sam" In Holiday Attire.
"Sam" Sutherland of Ferguson, B.
Oi, Is among the city's guests this
weok, says the Calgary Herald. Mr.
Sutherland Is at the head of one of
Ferguson's loading mercantile firms
and a director of the Ophir-Lado Mining Syndicate and tho Nettie L. mine.
He is also president of the Ferguson
conservative association. This morning Mr. Sutherland was shown Bome of
the sights of the city, including the
Hudson's Bay stores, the Great West
Saddlery, the new Burns block, the
new Herald building, the Calgary Milling company's grocery, the Herald
office, etc. He expressed great surprise
at Calgary's fine buildings, this being
his first visit to the city. He is here
to visit his brother, who recently came
up from tho east with a shipment of
dogies.
In regard to the prospects of the
Lardeau, of which Ferguson* is the
chief' camp, Mr. Sutherland is very
sanguine. The numerous discoveries
of gold in that district and tho development work already done, he says, establishes beyond doubt that the Lardeau will be the greatest free milling
gold camp in British Columbia. One
sample from Poplar creek seen by Mr.
Sutherland, although no larger than a
man's two fists, was filled with pieces
of gold some of which were as large as
just below Jack Nesbitt and Geo. Monroe's property on Rapid creek, It looks j ujE^^" wholo""s"amplo contaiVlng
nearly $200 worth of gold.   According

Hillman���At Calgary, on the 10th
inst., Charlotte M. Hillman, aged 83,
years, beloved mother of Hillman
brothers of the Lardeau and of Calgary.      	
Yesterday was the date for the start
of the great international yacht race,
correct, and it shows  that the gold
rock covers a wide area.
ANOTHER RICH DISCOVERY.
Just as we were "making up" to go
to press, Ed. Hillman came Into town
with splendid large samples of rich
ore encountered while driving a tunnel
on the Elsemer group.
The group consists of five full claims
only one mile above Circle City and six
miles from Ferguson. Considerable
work had been dono previously but
some days since Mr. Hillman started a
new tunnel lower down the hill and
quickly ran into magnificent ore and a
largo quantity. On one side of the
lead there is a foot of, solid copper
pyrites carrying good gold values, and
on tbe other wall the ore Is nearly solid
galena mixed with . grey copper. Mr.
Hillman vns surprised to find such a
quantity of ore so near tho surface. A
great big mine is surely, uudernoath
the surface of thc Elscnier.
THE COPPER CLIFF,
Bert Sharp and Jack McLeod returned to Ferguson on Friday last from
tho Coppor Cliff, a property belonging
to N J. Cavanaugh of Sandon, located
near tbo head of Macdonald creek.
The boys lluished assessment work
for this yoar and brought down some
fine specimens of galena ore. Thoy
encountered a tremendously big lead
and fully one-third of it was solid ore.
Mr. Sharp was quite enthusiastic over
tho discovery and said he believed Mr.
Cavanaugh would, when he learned of
lt, start In soon and work tho property
right along through the winter
THE MOUNTAIN LION.
Tho Mountain Lion South property
continues to improve. Superintendent
Brown is still working his force on ox-
tending the middle tunnel which shows
much better than any other part ot tho
mine. They aro now working In two
feet of solid ore. The strike that was
reported by the Eagle about eight
weeks since has proved continuous and
has increased in width,whilo tho grade
of oro Is tbo samo high class galena.
ClimblnK the Ladder.
W. H. McDougall, formerly in charge
of tho Kootenay department of the
Scranton Correspondence Sehools, has
been promotod to assistant superintendent at Scranton. Mr. McDougall made
his headquarters at Nelson while looking after the interests of the schools
in the Kootenays, and was well and
favorably known here. His promotion
to the position he now ocouplos was a
well merited one, and earned by steady
and painstaking work. Charles Pressor of Nelson, will succeed Mr. McDougall In tho Kootenays, making his
home here.���Nelson News*
to Mr. Sutherland the recent purchase
of the Lucky Jack group by W. B.
Pool for $200,000 is tho buy of the
season. The Lucky Jack is the leading property of tho Poplar Creek district and is the group from which camo
the phenomenal sample abovo referred
to. The property was bought by Mr.
Pool for himself and his associates in
Alberta. 	
Gun-Ming In Hotels���Three Arrests.
On Thursday morning last, Fred
Stewart, who hailed from Minneapolis,
and was about 25 years old, was found
dead in tho Climax hotel, Revelstoke.
He was sitting in a chair with his head
resting on his hand over a barrel. Tho
body showed wound on nose and bruise
on head.
Dr. Cross, coroner, was called In and
ordered a post mortem. Meantime C.
Tlinmins, a C. P. R. brakeman, who
had beon wrestling with deceased, was
arrested in connection with the affair.
Deceased was formorly typewriter for
Harbor Lumber Co. and latterly wiper

discharged Wednosday night.
An inquest was held Thursday with
the following result:
After a retirement of threo and a
half hours the jury roturned tho following verdict: Docoasod came by his
death by misadvonturo at tho hands of
either C. Timmins, J. l'orks or E. Du-
pont, or two or all ot thorn, from a blow
on the nose, predisposed by an extreme
state of alcoholism, in the building
known us thc Climax hotel.
Thoy addod the following ridor: Wo
finally earnestly recommond to the city
council, In our capacity as jurors, so-
looted from tho clti'/ons to represent on
this occasion public justice, aid tbe interest of tho law, that an absolute end
be put to gambling In the hotels of this
city, and that extreme measures bo
taken to effect the same and safeguard
the moral welfare of the city.
Tho coroner thanked tho jury, who
were dismissed about 1:30 a. m.
As the result of the Inquest E. Du-
pont and J. V. Perks were also arrested. Dupont was admitted to bail ln

To Secure Views.
A party from tho Middle States went
up to tho vicinity of the Old Gold on
the Duncan Wednesday, accompanied
by Hugh Brown and others. The
strangers gave as their object In making the trip, a desire to procure views
along tho North'Fork of the Lardeau
and the Upper Duncan.
The Past Week Compar-
itively Quiet -- More
Candidates for October Election.
London, Aug. 14,���Tho daily Telegraph has a dispatch from Vienna
which says there is an unconfirmed report that King Peter of Servia has
threatened to abdicate, as ho is virtually a prisoner in the hands of the military party.
A dispatch to the Central News from
Vienna yesterday says: "The entire
Servian ministry have resigned in consequence of tho difference in the personal relations between the army otl;-
cers who did not participate in the assassination of King Alexander and
Queen Dragu and those who took part
in the murders."
Vienna, Aug. 14.���It is stated thut
King Peter has invited .lovan Avakum ���
vitch, the premier under tho late king,
and himself to reconstruct the Servian
cabinet, The idea is to exclude the
three ministers wtoso irreconcilable
attitude precipitated the crisis. It i.*
stated that the discipline of thu army
has been gravely shaken, and that a
difficult task confronts King Peter unless he is ablo to got the upper hand of
the military party by proceeding
again6t the receut conspirators.

and in France his claims to supremacy

THE LARBEAU COUNTRY.
The Lardeau country is certainly
outstepping every other part of the
province in forging ahead and to a
prosperous condition. Even taking
silver-lead ores alone the Lardeau
has no equal in the province for its
high grade ore, and none in point of
quantity. The present season has
done more to prove that we have
large bodies than any preceding
one, but where the body is large the
ere is lower grade. This country
is full of mineral that is much above
tlie average grade, and the different camps are bound to become
-prosperous and rich  centres just as
oon as we get cheaper transportation.
There is no doubt that a large
custom smelter will be built at Ferguson, when we get direct railway
connection so that coke may be had.
lCverything hangs, however, on the
transportation question, and this
must he remedied before the district
I Lardeau sees its best days.
its weather bureau department is for
sale, very cheap and on reasonable
terms. Something seems to have
gone wrong with the "works" this
season and this journal was continually led astray. The only explanation we have to offer for the
barometer not registering correctly
is on account of so much gold having been discovered it has had a detracting influence on the instrument.
There are now three candidates
in the field to run for election in
this constituency. So it looks as
though there would be a three-cornered fight between the Conservatives, Liberals and Labor. One
can never tell in advance what will
be the outcome of a three-cornered
contest, for there is- always an un
certain element to be reckoned with.
From information ascertained to
date there appears to be a large increase of voters on the new lists
closed on the 14th inst. over the
number that was on the old lists.
We believe B. C. will in the next
half of a decade keep her end up
with the rest of the Dominion in
growth of population.
The coronation of Pope Pius X
took place at Rome early in th*
week. There were over 40,000 visitors gathered in Rome ior this occasion.
CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The recent discoveries of gold in
amazing quantities at Poplar and
Rapid creeks is changing the complexion of affairs in the Lardeau.
What was thought to be almost
solely a white metal district now
looks to be the richest gold district
in America. There is no other camp
today having leads carrying free
gold in such quantity, and what is
hetter and must not be lost sight
of, the new discoveries are easier of
access than any other gold camp
lhat was ever located.
The Boundary country is a splendid mining section of B. C. and a
section that will go ahead rapidly.
The ore is low grade but there is an
enormous tonnage and the ore is
mined very cheaply. Of course the
smelters are located near the mines,
and the only thing that need con-
_ern the mine owners is the price of
.oke. Whatever government obtains power cannot afford to overlook the vital question of transpor-
tatien within the province.
People outside the Lardeau are
only beginning to believe that we
have the greatest gold camps in existence. We have more than that;
we have the best mining properties
and propositions extant to offer to
bonqfide investors of capital. We
say the stories are being believed.
Yes, and capitalists are beginning
to come to investigate. Mr. P.
Clarke of Spokane, and party, are
now at Poplar creek and others will
follow. "
The Eagle begs to announce that
