Industry and Cause More
Over-Produotion.
TEMPORARY RELIEF ANYWAY
The Nelson and Trail smelters have
granted silver-lead mine owners a reduction of (4 per ton in tbe treatment
rate upon their ores which carry more
than twenty per cent. lead. The new
rates are based upon oros carrying
twenty per cent. lead. The present
rate for tho treatment of ore of this
class is $15; by the new tariff it will be
$11. Por ore carry ing more than twenty
por ceDt. lead there is the samo provision of adding twenty cents to tho
rate for each per cent, of lead over
twenty. In the case of ore currying
forty per eont. lead the treatment rate
would work out $15 which is ju.-t (4
lower than the rates charged by the
smelters this year for tho treatment of
the samo grade of ore. Theso rales

was to tho effect that tho proportion of

Tho Coming Mining Ciuno of 11. p.
During tho last two years two other
districts  have beon   rapidly  forcing
j themselves  on  the  attention  of  the
- mining world, and to-i!ay the Lardeau
!and  Trout.  Lake districts bid fuir to
' rival, if not surpass, the older districts
of the  Kootenuy, says the Vancouver
i Province.   The  immense  richness of
the ore in the  properties  about tlio
I town of  Ferguson,  wus demonstrated
1 last year when eighty tons, sent to tho
, Trail smelter, realized to the shippers
! $18,000 after pr.ying all tbe expenses of
transportation,   which  wore anything
but small.   Alt this country has beon
very thoroughly exploited, and at tbo
present time for miles about Ferguson,
it has all boen staked by prospectors
and miners.   During tho last your and
a half tho  representatives of  English
and American  companies have looked
over this  territory with considerable
care, and many properties have beon
bonded at very large amounts, showing
the belief which experts entertain regarding the district.   It is expected
that by the end of next year a railway
line will  have been completed from
Kootenay to Arrow lake to tap this
country, and furnish means for getting
out the ore.
Silver Cup'H Ore Shipment.
The .Sliver Cup oro is not boing

where It will be bold for shipment next
spring over tho now A. & K. branch, a
fairly good indication lu itself tbat
Manager Didisheim hns received sufficient guarantee from tlio railway officials to warrant him In doing so. The
shipment of 800 tons of oro from
tho Cup will mean further and more
extonsivo development work beforo
other shipments are made. Sept.

Be Careful With Vour Light* nnil Flrei.
This is tho senson of the year whon
the fire fiend, terriblo at any timo, harvests his many vlotuns, says tho Frank
Sentinel. All of us havo known prosperous towns whoso citizens wont to
bed even with tho woild and who, tbo
next morning, gathered around tho
blackened ruins of their town homeless
and bankrupt. In a town such as wo

He Will Do Honor to II. C.
Prof. Blochberger of Rossland,
largely Interested In the Fish Crook
camp, has boen requested to deliver an
address on British Columbia at tho
United States editorial congress to be
held during tlie month of May, 1902,
in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and recognizing the Importanco and prominence.

the world, tho subject of "Minos and

assigned to Mr. Blochberger by tho
president of the association.
The Only Hope for l.nrdeau Mine owners,
With the curtailment of lead production, und a Blow and steady marketing of the lead on hand, thero has boen
a constant docrense of tho surplus, and
it Is estimated that by tbo lirst of tho
year, there will bo not to exceed 15,000
or 20,000 tons on hand, which is not a
largo aniount for a smelting company
to havo in storage and in transit. By
the first of the year there Is expected
to bo a marked revival of the mining
industry of the Coour d'Alones, says
tho Bu.to People, lf Lardoau mino
ownors could only get Coour d'Alone
prices, this would bo tho busiest camp
of tho bunch next season. But until
the government or thc C. P. II furnishes us with a refineryi  reduces tbo
Spencer City, it New Tiiivu.
Tho townsite kuown by above mono
is situated on thu West Fork of tho
Duncan at the junction of the Littlo
West Fork. It was located over a
year ago by Dr. Spencer's agent sinco
which a crown grant has beon issued
and Is in the hands of the London and
Canadian Development company, of
which Dr. Spencer is president. There
are several holders of the shares and
it is the intention of tho owners to open
a supply store.put up a saw mill, put In
a livery, pack,-and a large boarding
house, as oarly in 1902 as possible, Tbe
surveyors havo laid out several streets
and there is abundance of water for all
purposes. Tho government trail is
nearly finished from Hall's creek to
the townsite and the trail to tbe Old
Gold camp bus been made. Negotia-
t ions are oo for erecting a smelter there
and with the dozen gold properties surrounding it.as well as the enterprising
company pushing it ahead, u town
should soon be in existence. There is
no question regarding tho richness of
tho Lardeau. Trout Lako City and
Ferguson will serve their purposo for
their districts and there need bo no
rivalry between them and Spencer
people. Tho only proper inlet and outlet for all that district is by the West
Fork and the Duncan. A railroad
must go in that way and to this very
placo.
Ono prominent resident of Rossland
says: "You have a better position and
prospect than Rossland was seven yours
ago."
Tbe surveyor, Mr. Wilkie, suys: "In
ray opinion Spencer City has a fair future beforo it as soon as the mineB of
the Little West Fork do any shipping,
us all that traffic haa to go through it
on its way to Kootenay lake. There is
also fair plno and cedar oo it."
Mr. C, Oulhott, A. 11. C. So., M. E.,
who has examined properties In this
district writes, unsolicited: "I consider its locution a very advantageous
ono. Judging from whut I suw no oilier
townsite can bo taken up which will be
so favorably situaied us a supply point
for tlio whole of tbe west fori; of tho
Duncan and its tributaries. 1 consider
the townsite a very valuable holding."
As soon as the season opens lots can
be conveyed, applications for which can
now bo made to the London and Canadian Development company, Bruntfonl

A small experimental smeltor has

We Have Only to Compare Our
Position to a Year Ago to Realize, the Progress Being Made.
WORKING OUT OUR DESTINY
The year 1902 has dawned, but all
days look alike in tbe Lardeau. Thc
gradual rise in silver, and the construction of a smelter in town, reduce
smelter rates outside, and the prospect
of a lead refinery Is having a stimulating effect. It would appear that, after
all, by the time Lardeau mine ownors
aro ready to ship ore next season.
market conditions will wo more favorable. The experience of tho past fow
weeks has been well nigh disheartening, but it seems to be the only method
by which Canadians can be aroused
and put to devising moans to work out
their own destiny, Independent of tbo

department of mines has partially

II. 1'. PETTIPIECE.
Honest men need never fear that
any obnoxious relorm, either social
or political, will burst upon the
people and carry the country into
the whirlpool of destruction. Reforms work in the opposite way.
It is the agitation of reform that
keeps the world from drifting back
into barbarism, says an eminent
writer. In the backward movement
there is no agitation. The people
who work to ruin the prosperity
and happiness of men, do it in
secret.- They seek darkness in
preference to light. They becloud
the intellect of the common herd
with promises of prosperity, and
lull the world to sleep with the
lullaby songs ol hypocracy, and then
plunder the sleepers so slyly that
they do not even suspect their loss
after they awaken and count over
their possessions. Don't be afraid
of the noisy reformer���he is too
honest to deceive anybody. The
dangerous man is he who takes his
victim around the corner to whisper
in his ear and make promises that
must be kept a profound secret until
ihe scheme is fully developed and
fastened on the people. Anything
that is done openly, must of its very
nature he done honestly. And to
do a thing openly and honestly,
promising the people only the real
benefits to be derived from the reform or change in existing conditions, to convince the people of
the truth, without deceiving them
in any manner; to make a genuine
conscientious conversion to the righi
way of thinking���takes a long,
long, weary, weary time, and don't
let this fact leak thru the slats of
your thought-crib. The human intellect moves slow, slower than tar
in January, slower than the growth
of a century plant, slower than
dropping water boring a hole into a
rock of granite, slower than the
Senate in passing a labor alien law
���yea, even almost as slow as theup-
heaval of the mountains during the
world's cooling-off process, or the
disintegration of the planets while
evolution goes on in in its everlasting changing of the atoms and
molecules out of which this mighty
universe is constructed. In fact,
the human mind is stow, sluggish,
-lecpy, slothful, languid, obstinate,
dull, dormant, calloused, torpid,
lazy, suspicious, prejudiced, and
confined within a mighty thick skull.
It wallowed around in barbarism
and paganism for thousands of

to you unless you had some form of
property on which to work him,
says the Appeal. If you did not
own the man but owned the property he would have to. serve you
The fact that he could serve some
other fellow with property would
make no difference to him. He
would have to serve or starve,
When all men own the property collectively then each will be equally
free to apply himself on the com
mon capital and get the full results
of his labor. In no other way is it
possible, tinder common ownership each child would inherit an
equal right to a place to apply itself, and would not have to work
lor years for the profit of others he-
fore it could save enough to buy un
individual place to apply its energies.
And even if all could buy an individual place, those who owned the
means of transportation and exchange could and would levy a
profit off the balance of the people.
Mining, when conducted with the
same business caution that the
average commercial venture requires, is equally safe and more
profitable, observes the I,ead and
Zinc News. No business man
would think of turning over the
management of his affairs to a green
man, and yet many of those same
business men, ordinarily level-headed will consent to turn a mining
enterprise oyer to a green man.
Under competent management, conducted with the same cure that a
wholesale or retail business is carried on, mining is as sate an investment as can be secured. When the
presence of ore in paying quantities
is known then the elimination ofthe
element of chance is accomplished
with more than a reasonable
certainty. Don't forget when
starting a mining enterprise that
cheap management is most frequently the most extravagant in the
long run.

No one can make head or tail of

are fighting in Wall street without
the least regard for the welfare of
business. Let a body of foolish men
go out on a strike and the United
States rings with denunciations by
the denizens of Wall street against
the evil-minded business-destroying

The Eagle has been i equested hy
a number of Lardeauit es, among
whom are prominent busi ness men,
to draw Thos. Taylor's atl ention lo
the necessity 'if a short wagi'n road,
and bridge over the north fork ot
Lardeau creek just above town, to
join the north and south fork r>oads,
without going down hill, as at present, lo pull up again. The advantage of such a connection must he
apparent to anyone who will sltfe
up the ground and give the subject
a few moments thought.- The roaa'
would be a short one, starting from
this side at the sp-.elter, to a point
at the north fork canyon, where a
bridge could easily be built, and on
over straight to the Nettie L. ore
house, with comparatively no grade,
and a much shorter haul to bring
ore to the smelter. The annual
expense of keeping the present
down-and-up-bill road free of mudslides, etc., would pay tor the new
road in five years, and thereafter no
repairs would be necessary. The
advantages of this new road would
he of special interest to the freighters and smelter people, not to men-
lion the lessening of the cost of ore
hauling to present shipping mines.
The Eagle, then, hopes' to see Mr.
Taylor make a note of this -much-
desired public work, look into the
matter, and procure an appropriation as soon as possible for the
work.
and we feel confident that we can give you satisfaction in
every particular.    Write : Sawyer Bros., Revelstoke, B. C.
As a result of the Northern Securities railway combination the rates
are being lowered. No competition,
fewer officers and agents, modern
equipments, etc., nil conduce to
make this possible. Competition
is a dead-letter compared lo the
economy and benefits of co-operation. Now, if the management
and operating system were to remain the same, and the people
merely collectively "owrted" the
railroads, the profits would come
back to the people. Our mail
matter, etc., could be carried at less
than half the present rates, freight
and passenger rates could be cut in
two (no passes then) and still tht
people would have a profit, which
now goes to swell the millions of
dollars already amassed by tbe
railway magnates.

Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
\B\E\C\A\U\S\E
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.
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
the 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 many of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
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 of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are it
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is ever)* natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
Bat why give other reasons: We have the mines, thc pay roll, the natural geographical location, the supply trade, the banking institutions, unlimited water power for all
purposes; and the right kind of people to make a town. The ore shipments, increasing
business, and money and enterprise wilt do the rest.    Come here and see for yourself.
