$2.00 A YEAR.
Messrs. Jno. J. Young and W. B.
Pool Are tbe ^urohaaers.
PRICE SI M 1500,000
The properly Now W^rWng, Full
Blast Under New Ownership
.    .  and Better'Conditions.
���'Weill What do you think of it?'
Tblnk of what, asked tbe Eagle scribe
sort of nervously. "Why Billy Pool
and John J. Young have bought the
Silver Cup for half a million!"
Such was the almost incredulous roport which reached town on Saturday.
But investigation and event* slnte then
have borne out the facto of the report,
Negotiation have been >*oing on, on
the quiet, for some weeks, but not until
last Friday was a single person in the
camp aware of the cause of the anxious
and nighty movements on the part of
the purchasers.
Tic details leading up to the sale,
whicb was completed on March 13tb,
were all carried out by cablegram.
Of the Silver Cup and Sunshine
group the Eagle can say very little
whichjvIU be new to Its readers. The
property was owned and operated'
hitherto by the Sunshine limited, a
subsidiary company to the Lillooet,
Fraser river & Cariboo Goldflelds,
Limited, locally known as the Horn*
Rayae. It's carver hat been somewhat
checkered, owing to verlnuS changes
lathe management and the faot that
thc English and French shareholders
could never seem to agree. The property was capable of making a bettor
showing and doing much more than It
has, hut its progress was somewhat retarded on account of this squabbling.
The group consist* of eight claims,
crown granted, and one not, situated on
Silver Cup mountain, about seven miles
up the south .torti. In the center of
what is locally considered the best
mineral twit running thru the district.
1 The Silver Cup was one of the earliest strikes In the eamp.' It was the
lirst mine worked and the first to ship
ore. Since tbe Horn-Payoe people
took hold of It In 1897, an extensive
amount of development work has been
4pne, a full description of which ba*
appeared from time to time ln tbe
EAPLE. ���
, Up to date the Cup people have
shipped 1180,000 worth of Ore, not In-
(���Ind jpg tbis winter's output-over 800
tpns of which It now at the Lake
awaiting shipment via the new A. &
K. branch. But of the mine Itself the
Eaole will have more to say at a
. later date, as tho property in the hands
of lis present ownen can be visited by
anyone at anytime, a privilege sot
hitherto accorded.
The price paid Is said to have been
1600,000 cash, but lacks confirmation.
The purchasers haven't very much
to sny. but one of them at least gave
tbe Eaole to understrnd that they
bad secured the much-prized property
it a figure considerably helow Its
Actual value; owing no doubt to the
wrangle between tbe old shareholders,
The sale Is the biggest, at any rate,
ever put thru In this camp, and its
importance from so many, points of
view, tp Lardeaultes, can scarcely bo
ettlmated, lot alone conveyed to our
readers iu cold type.
Machinery it to be installed, tbe
working force will be Increased at soon
as possible, and tbe property will be
worked for all tbere is lu lt.
The significance oi thia- big deal is
more than one would think at first
thought, It speaks louder (ban'words
of the confidence which the purchasers
have in the Lardoau, and thc future of
, B. C. us a mining field, nnd tho effect
cannot fail to be far reach itu-v. ."
3; Those are tbeUst. .o [.ms oan be
ascertained by the EAGLE from various
sources:   "We cannot say much  regarding future operations until we bave
had time to turn round," was tbe reply
of one of the new owners to our query.
"While we have beta after the Silver
Gup for a long time and have been preparing ourselves for this deal, it uan be
readily understood, tbat tn a deal of
tuoh  magnitude, the purchasers,  no
matter who they might he, would have
their hands full not only In financing
ibe deal, but in taking over tbe mines
and other assets, assuming the payroll, transferring various contracts, etc,
and familiarizing themselves with the
hundred and one details of a large going concern.   So tljot ,,we havo not yet
fully decided all the items of our future
policy.   We can say two. things, how*
ever,', with certainty.   First���We are
more satisfied witb the Silver Cup than
ever since' returning from a second ex*
aminatlon to-day, as the size and richness of tbe ore bodies are such that
thero Is at least a year's mining abead
of us in the upper workings alone, and
you can figure what this means, with
an output of from, five to ten tone of
1140 ore per day.   Second���The Sliver
C'Up, being nnw owned by practically
tbe same syndicate which controls the
Nettle L��� Double Eagle and Ophir-
Lade, will be operated on the same
principles which have brought us a
moderate measure of success in the
So the Silver Cup Is to-day being
operated by Messrs. Pool and Young.
Success to you gentlemen I

Now Don't All Speak at Onee.
The following olrcular may be of
Interest to McCrossan'sbnycotters, who
have such unerring faith (V) in the
methods and future of the companies
mentioned herein. It's true they haven't
a dollar invested in any of them, but
this bargain to "special friends" may

My dear friend: As you know, tbe
smelter plaijt is sow at the town of
Ferguion and a large sang of men it at

all the needed money to buy soke, coal,
wood, ORE, etc., to get nicely started.
As toon as the smelter gets to eoing, it
will speedily pay. for Itself and pay the
shareholders handsomely as well. But
there are many expenses to meet in the
next three weeks and I am personally
THAT HUST.QE RAISED, I  find  that
must make a special effort at once to
raise at least |f,000.00 more than is
now on hand. Therefore I am about to
make you and several other friends
such an offer as you will not be very
likely to get again. All tbe stocks
mentioned in the combination offer below are fine stocks and very valuable
I most firmly believe, and I bave very
carefully gone over these various properties, and certainly I tell you that the

Minneapolis, Minn,, March 15,
1902.���To the ^Editor of tha Eagle:
Wo bave read with regret articles tn
the Eagle, reflecting upon our company. We are certain. tbat if you
knew all the facts you would not write
as you have. Permit us to give you a
few facts.
We have a capitalization of 1,500,000
shares. When our North property was
purchased, shares were sold at 10c or
less. When the Old Gold and Blaek
Warrior development work made such
good showings our sales advanced to
15c. When we purchased our South
property an advance was made to 25,
and when our foreman bad uncovered
a very large body of ore,' our stock
went to 40o, where it remained uutil we
had sold enough stock to pay in full for
our eight claims and also have our
treasury contain about 830.000 in cash.
deau it late in the development when
Investors aro treated as you bave treated
us and are treating others.
Very truly yours.
The Mountain Lion Mining Co.

[The above Is a plain statement of the
company's affairs, and the Eaglk gives
it publicity with pleasure. Tho Eagle
has at no time found fault with the
company Itself. But tbe sudden rise
In the price of their stock seemed
rather hasty toa conservative observer,

I will give you ALL OF THE ABOVE
This would give you a holding tn six
different companies all with excellent
prospects, una you would bfc SURE to
strike it RICH in some of them.
It, la a wise thing not to carry all
((.uiitl��u��<l oa fourth p��.o.)
We tben. on Feb. 1st, advanced our
price to 81,00 or par, not to sell stock,
but to withdraw it froo the market.
We bave never told a single share for
11.00 nor do we Intend to. It is not al
this time worth it. Our shares will
not be worth 81,00 until we make it a
dividend payer of 4 or 6 per cent.
When we do that It will bring par. in
any stock market. We think that with
$.10,000 In cash and all debts paid the
property in a reasonable time can be
made a dividend payer.
We now have a thousand tons ready
to get out, We can get it out next
winter and each following winter we
oan do the same thing. There has
never been an assay for less than a
hundred dollars per ton of our ore
Now do a little figuring for yourself on
the basis of from 8100 to 8125 per ton.
We propose to pay a dividend on 1,300,-
000 shares nf stock. We have reserved
tn our treasury from 100,000 tn 200,000
shares for future purchase or contingencies. If there ever was a fair and
just proposition inclining, we are certain that this Is one of them. Every
mining expert who has inspected our
property has reported that we oan
eaBily do what we propose to do. We
are therefore, neither a speculating
nor a gambling company. We are in
the'Lardeau for an honest and a legitimate business. We propose to make
the Mountain Lion as a producer, to
rank even with tbe best company you
bave got. If our cash balance In the
treasury cannot do it, we know where
aa muoh more can bo had. We are
sorry tbat your laws do not require
tbat in expert examiner.investigate
and publicly report upon where every
company operating in your district. If
there was such and officer we would be
only too glad to have him como to our
office and rigidly examine our books
and acoounts and publicly report upon'
where every cent of out- money is or
has gone to. Our company is backed
by business, and professional men whose
purpose lt is to make our property pay
dividends and our promoters are purchasing rather than selling stock.
Now, Mr..JKditor, in ull fairness to
yourself and to your community, treat
ua with a little courtesy. Give us a
year or two to demonstrate what we
can do. Wo propose to put Into you:
district from 820,000 to $,'.0,000 per yoar
and we expect to reoeivc at least a little
oourteey from both thc press and the
public. We ask no favors boyond that
which we deserve. Wo expect to pay

There, are two classes of persons
thru whose influence money is being
constantly lost. in mining invest*
ments. First,.the uniformed, well
meaning, honest man, who induces
his friends to invest money in properties solely upon his judgment upon a subject of which he is perfectly
ignorant; second, the informed dishonest man who is a shark or
sharper. Altho. it seems unfair to
place these two classes of men in
uch close connection their influence
upon the goq.d name of mining is
the same, apd if anything, the in*
Auence of the former is much worse
than that of the latter. Investigation has disclosed many misguided
investmentsin so-called mines. Such
investments are the result of over-
enthusiasm on the part of the promoter and the weakness or cupidity
of capital in its almost ungovernable desire to obtain something, for
and wiser to start right or not start
at all. However' practical mining
men, who are out to do legitimate
business, need no advice from a
source ol this kind; and tht humbug
element are not seeking advice. So
let 'er slide. "There's a sucker
born, etc."

Record, published- monthly at Victoria, B. C.; "If we had more men

It may be quire true that' the
Eagle has announced its entire
business for sale, simply because
he proprietor decided last January
io go into business at the Coast;
hut the blatant cock-crowing ot
would-be dictators, boycotters, ind
stock-peddling parsons that we have
been "forced" to sell is absolutely
false. The Eagls has not changed
hands, nor if it does was it because
of being boycotted by a small combination ol McCrossan's pets who
imagine they are the whole works.
The Eaglb has opinions of its own.
It is now costing it $(5 a month to
retain them. And inside af sixty
days there will be $100 worth of
patronage a month to take its place.
We are not Idokingfor sympathy or
ill-gotten gains. And we don't need
it to remain in this camp and do
business at the old stand. So
gentlemen, keep your change and
your sympathy until we ask you

In the present day there is no excuse for investors entering the
mining field blindly. The same
careful business consideration should
be given an enterprise in mining
that is extended to enterprises of
manufacturing or mercantile pursuits. All men cannot be all things.
In manufacturing the advice ol experience in the line under consideration is sought. In real estate transactions the advice of a lawyer is
���ought, and in mining tbe advice Of
a mining man should b* sought,
The mining man may not be able to
see further into the ground-than the
miner or promoter, but he will see
all there, is to see, know what he has
seen, state what he has seen and no
more, determine the value .of ore
exposed, detain the surrounding
economic conditions and demon-.
strate what a ton of ore so located
will yield in profit to the operator.
If the examination of the property
includes consideration and advice'
relative to the purchase price and
proposition made by owner to prospective purchaser, the experiencid

By a vote of 33s to _,1�� the chamber
of doputies at Paris, France, adopted a
bill regulating the period of daily
work In mines. Nine hours ���hall be a
day's work at the end of six months
and at the end of two yeara reduced tn
eight and a half hours and two years,
later eight hours. This was brought
about through the activity of the Socialists of Franca.
When some years hence there shall
be only one steel company, one ayatem
of railways, one packing company, one

one combination of coal mine operators,
one organization for tbe manufacture
of sugar, together with similar organizations monopolizing the other important industries, band upon the Imparl-

of benefit to tbe people. . Either the
