Mining Mon Must Exercise Patience
and Stick-To-u.Itiveness.
Mining Prospects Should Always
Be Given Fair and Honest
Development.
ALL MEN ABE NOT
Two of the most unfavorable symptoms in the mining fever are impatlenoe
and restlessness���the inordinate desire
to hastily convert a promising prospect into a paying mine, and the hallucination that at some remote point
or place the mineral conditions are
more favorable. The mining interests
of the country have suffered a great
deal from those clearly definable mental conditions into which mining men
are apt to fall.
Impatlcneo has IVrocfcod Mora Mim
and mining; communities than almost
any other cause, says tho Butte Mining World. Hasty development ia likely to prove expensive and unprofitable.
The desiro to make a mino before a
claim has been properly prospected
haa so often resulted disastrously as to
give tho mining industry a speculative
character to which it is not entitled.
Prospectors and miners, like actois,
often acquire a faith in a favorable
destiny
Not Justified ny tho Conclusions
of good judgment. Their money is
often invested mere on faith thtm on
tbo findings upon which the preliminary steps of mino malting arc supposed
forest. Even when all the conditions
justify the attempt to create a produ
clog mine, patience is essential to sue
cess. OncOv satisfied that his vein
conforms t.o tho ��� proper mineral und
geological conditions, thc minor should,
in the language of the street, "stay
with it."
Montana's most conspicuous example
of patience and successful mining Is
that of Mr. Thomas Cruse, of Helens
It is said that for seven long, weary
years, despite hardships and discouragements of all kinds, ho worked faithfully on tho Drum Lummon mine,
which finally bloBsomod into
A Marvelous Unlit Mine
and made its owner.a millionaire.
Many prospectors have shown just as
much ability to find promising leads as
did Mr. Cruse, and like' him have
lived to see their discoveries developed
into paying minos; but unlike bim, and
such mon as Mr. Stratton of Colorado,
thoy did not possess tho stiek.-to-a-tivo
facility and surrendered the advantages
acquired by thoir kuowlopgo arid skill.
Through Lack of Htitylng Qualities
the average prospector wbo enjoys tho
distinction of having located a great
mining property has his enjoyment
badly frilled along tho edges by the
faot that tho ontiro product of that
property goes Into other pockots than
his own. It is related that an Irishman abandoned a mining property,
which was subsequently developed into
a great mine by sinking au additional
ton feet in thc shaft. Wheu hu heard
of tbo nows ho registered a vow of
patience ia  tho  following  languige;
"Bogorra, if Oi Ivor get discouraged
agin Oi'll sink tin fate furdor afore 01
quits the diggin's."
A fortunate delayed telegram of tho
owners ot tho property, directing discontinuation of tho work, prevented
the abandonment of what afterwards
bocame the famous Granite Mountain
mine. Only a fow hours delay, in
which
A c.ruut Strike Was Registered
In the mino, stood between its owners
and tho millions that afterward found
their way into their pockots. Montana
alone could furnish enough illustrations of this type, showing the value of
patience, to fill a book.
If tho farmer, the merchant, tbe
manufacturer, or tho professional man,
demanded as quick returns from his
investment of labor, capital and brains,
as does the ownors of mining propei tin,
tha entire system of our olvll life
would go to pieces. In nearly ovory
vocation of life, patience, extonding
through many years, must bo exercised
as the price of success, yot In tbo mining industry many
Valuable Properties Are   Abandoned
if tho exploitations of perhaps loss than
a twolvo-month fall to reveal tho
coveted promise of wealth. If a mining property is worth developing at
all, it is worth a patient test of merit,
even if years of work are to follow a
careful analysis of the mineral and
geological conditions that environ the
property, before victory is achieved.
Impatience is often augmented by
its twin symptom of restlessness that
sees in tbe glorious and beyond
brighter prospects than can bo hoped
for in the present surroundings.
Men Who Ought to Know Better
suffer from this mlneralogical complaint, whioh takes hold of the system
whenever a case of Indigestible impatience to get rich impairs the circulation of good impulses and effects
the normal conditions of the mind.
Thus it happens that so many well-to-
do mining men
Overlook Home Opportunities
for the attractions of the North Pole,
as tha csue may be, floundering around
''from post to pillar" in search of tho
hiding placo of the fickle goddess of
fortune. The dream of some golden
Utopia takes possession of tbeir mind
and tbo mirage of coming triumphs
fills the otbit of their vision. If
wealthy, thoy deprive the community
or country in which they livo ofthe
money, which,
If Invested at Home,
would double aud treble itself In short
order; if poor, thoy transfer themselves
as productive factors of labor to tlie
tinsel-trimmed elsewhere Thus many
prospectively prosperous mining campi
aro robbed ot a fair opportunity to
demonstrate their worth to the world
LARDEAU'S MODERN TOWN
Nearly Three Hundred Lights Con
traoted For in Ferguson
Yesterday.
Tho Lardeau Power and Light Co.,
represented by Mr. Sawyer of Revelstoke, havo decided to install n lighting
plant, which is now on tho way, in
Ferguson without delay. Tho com
pany asked for a guarantee of 225 IGc.p.
lamps for a period of six months and
yesterday nearly 300 were contracted
for by Fergusouites. Besides thn
hotels, business bouses and residences
thore is to bo six street lights for
which the to wnsito ownors have agreed
to pay $5.00 a month, while a public
committee will arrange for payment of
the balance. Mr. Sawyer left for
Revelstoke yesterday and will have a
stock ot appliances shipped In at once,
so tbat the buildings can be wired
without delay. Separate contracts
will be let, upon Mr Sawyer's return,
for the completion' of tho dam, the
station, tho poles, and the outsido
wiring, so that thoro will bo as littlo
delay as possible. If men nro avail
able an<< thero is no unlooked delay in
tho arrival of tho machinery Ferguson
will bo Illuminated by olectricty beforo Christmas.
Work hns boon suspended indefinitely on tlio Mountain Lion group. Tho
second payment on tho American group
is past due.
The local saw mill is running full
blast and Mr. Anderson may find it
necossary to run a night and day shift
to koop up with the orders. ���
Development work is progressing
nicely at the Horsoshoo on Trout
creek. Mr. Hillman hopes to make a
small shipment next month. Work
will bo continued all wlntor.
Messrs. Beaton and Kinman have
completed tbeir contracts on the
Landing-Camborne road. This shortens
the route from the, northeast Arm to
Camborne by two and a half miles.
Will some kind person Inform us the
difference between buying scab-made
goods from eastern sweat-shops and
scab-made goods in western retail
stores? If the purchaser demanded the
union ltbel from both lt would be a
���top ia tbe right dlraotlon.
Mining Stook Quotations are Only
Useful to Manipulators.
Use Your Own Judgment and Don't
Swallow all That is Told You
of Stook Values.
The Eagle has often been asked by
outsido correspondents why it never
published mining stock quotations.
We have good reasons for not doing
so, and, as the Mining World says,
"while it is customary to embellish
the columns of a newspaper with voluminous quotations as to the market
valuos of mining stock, probably nothing is more unreliable in the whole
range of commercial literature than
such quotations. Aside from a few
regular dividend paying mines, where
tho output of oi e varies but little,
stocks aro so sensitive to every rumor
that the quotations of one day may bo
unsafe to prodict their valuo on tbo
following day. Not only the rumored
condition of tho property itself, but
tho interest manifested In adjoining
properties, the prospective developments to be made In the district, the
riso or fall of in tho prloe of machinery
likely to bo needed; and a thousand
and one other conditions affect the
selling values of non-dividend paying
stock.  Thus it happens that quotations

are, in tho nature of tilings, misleading. They servo a purposo only in
showing tho general trend of values in
a certain property, in which thu estimates may be overdrawn. An element
of guesswork necessarily enters into
the stock market. This is peculiarly
truo of mining stocks. It may be said
that tbey aro worth what they will
command in the market, but ignorance
of rumors or facts affecting tho condition of tho property must bo largely
depended upon to give stability to
market values. Many classes of stocks
aro bulled or boared by extraneous
conditions thnt havo littlo to do with
tho actual productive valno of tbo
proporty represented. Thoy have a
speculative feature ontiroly distinct
from their absolute value. Thus roil-
road stocks, representing linos whose
business will vary but fow points year
in und yoar out, will riso nnd fall re-
sponslvo to their speculative values.
Mining stocks however, fluctuate in
response to a bolief that tho mining
proporty is growing bettor or worse as
a prospective producer of ore. This
belief may bo based on facts or rumors
utterly without foundation���the selling
value of tbo stock is affected for better
or worso. In view of these facts the
habit ot publishing mining stock quotations serves no publio purpose and is
of little practical value to the man who
is looking for investments in that
direction."
NOW WOBTHV OP PATRONAGE.
Under date of Sept. 28, the Boot and
Shoe Worker's Union auuounoes that
the Ames Holden oompaoy ot Montreal)

I.X.L. BOND TtlKOWN IIP.
M. B. Wobber and associates have,
at tho instance of their representatives
here, thrown up thoir $30,000 bond on
the I.X.L. group at the head of Brown
creek, after spendiug $3,000 in development. A fino chuto of ore was run
through while, drifting in on the ledgo
when only ten foet underground, but
further development was deemed un
warrantable by tho bond holders. The
men employed on tho property came
down tho bill on Saturday, and the
supplies have been packed over to the
Black Warrior, where tho same

An agreement of bond was signed in

The new Route Taps More Mines,
And Gives More Tonnage With
Less Mileage.
DIRECT TO FERGUSON
Following closo upon the newsol
the early establishment of a smelter
plant in Ferguson by Chas. W. McCrossan, and tbe opening of a branch
of the Imperial bank here, comes the
welcome intelligence from a C.P.R.
official, whose name is witheld on that
account, tbat the railway company
have altered their plans with regard to
whero the railway will be built. Thn
road will bo completed to the foot of
Trout lako this winter all right, but
no slip or wharf is to be built at eithc:'
Twin Falls or Trout Lake. Thc com
pany have decided to utilize the old
survey of tho Kaslo and Lardo-Duncan
railway, which started to build to this
place in '07, but was afterwards bought
off by the C. P. R This means that
tl,c present branoh will como direct to
Ferguson on the eastern slope of Trout
lake, thus solving the question of
winter navigation on the lake. It will
also tap more mines witti less mileage
than by the old plans. The C. i\ R.
people are business men, ami for this
reason alone tbeir present move io
easily understood. They want the
most tonnage for tho least mileage,
and hy carrying out tbe above plans
they will attain tlieir object. We neod
not be surprised to see the iron horsi
rounding the curve at til is end of
Silver Cup mountain, across tlie valley
from Ferguson, by this time next year.
Others that wo know of may hear tho
whistle, but they will hardly seo tho
smoke.
A RIVAL FOR CAMBORNE.
One result, of townsite owners not
advertising is now to bo seen in the
Fish creek eamp. Tbo Camborno
pooplo imagined tbey had a cinch, but
never announced it In a newspaper.
Now comes (1. F. Goldsmith with a
rival foi" Camborno. The new townsite
is Goldfiolds, and if we mistake not
the-o will bo moro paid publicity than
heretofore concerning Camborne. Mr.
Goldsmith recently purchased from
Roger E. Perry an interest in this
townsite, and with Mr. Perry will
proeeed'to slash the timber and lay out
streets, survoy and plot the ground at.
once. Messrs. Goldsmith and Perrj
jave tbo making of a splendid town-
site in Goldfiolds, adjoining as it does
tho famous Camborno group, which
comes right down to the townslto
limits.
A SELF HADE TOWN AND CAMP.
Ferguson is growing. It is equipped
witb private waterworks,; has it bank,
and an electric light system is boing
installed; tho railway is making direct
for Ferguson mines, and a smelter
plant on tbe townsite is among the.
probabilities for this winter. Tho
mines aro gradually increasing their
working force and Ferguson's pay
roll. Business is improving, there
aro few idle men, tho standard wage is
paid, thoro are no labor troubles, the
oro output is increasing, and tho camp
generally is prosperous. This happy
state of affairs was brought about by
tho residents tbemselvos who aro not
waiting for outsido capital but creating
their own wealth from our rich mineral
resources.
A   HIGH-GRADE SHIPMENT.

of Triune ore for this season. According fo check assays made here tho

THE LARDEAU EAGLE,
FERGUSON, B. C.
THURSDAY,   OCTOBER il,   1901.
The problem of temperance reform can be best dealt with at the
present lime by the elimination ot
private profit from the sale of intoxicants.
salmon eggs are in process of development at the Tappen Siding
hatchery, which will in due course
find tbeir way into the river to
ultimately provide material for the
Fraser river canneries. A number
of men are employed at this hatchery, whicli is a Dominion government establishment. But oh dear
no, the government couldn't
employ a few more men and
operate the rest of the Industry.
As Puck well says, what fools we
mortals be.
The pessimists who look wise
and tell you that Ferguson's
progress was on paper only should
start a little Knockersville ol their
own. They are out of their element
in the pay roll.centre.
The C. P. R. has apparently
made up its mind to go after the
output of tbe Slocan and Lardeau
mines, almost the entire product
from which is now being treated at
the Trail smelter, and there is also
an unconfirmed report that the great
corporation intend taking immediate
steps for the establishment of a re
fining plant, in time to claim the
bonus of $5 per ton granted hy the
Dominion government lor lead
refined in Canada before July, icjos.
The opening months ot 1902 are
likely to see the output of silver-lead
ores substantially increased and the
production for the entire country
brought nearer to the normal stage
than has been tbe case for the last
half, if not the whole, of 1901.
None of the much advertiesd
bonanza lands ot the country or the
world offers greater and richer opportunities to enterprising prospectors and miners than this camp, of
which Ferguson is the centre and
metropolis.
Judging from the silly questions
the EAOLE is asked by easterners
every week by letter, some of them
are innocent enough to believe that
every mining claim blocked out on
a map is a mine. Some people acquire their experience, others buy
it.    But it all goes  to make up life.
The development in the Lardeau
mining district during the past year
has been phenomenal. The rich
strikes this season, the steady and
permanent showing where work
has been done and the actual production of ore have ail aided in
stimulating mining and no camp in
B, C. basal present greater activity.
It will be quite within the truth
to estimate that the merchants of
Forguson have turned over more
goods in the last three months than
tbe merchants of all ihe other towns
in the district combined. A growing mining camp such ns this is a
large consumer, while it produces
nothing but natural wealth and
wiser men.
Now that a bank is being established in the commercial centre of
the Lardeau and Trout Lake mining district the postal authorities
should see that we are given a mail
service throughout the winter equal
lo that provided during the summer
season, lixtra caution should also
be exercised in delivery, since the
mail bags may be worth "looking
into" from time to time.
In these modern days of mining
the investor is not bound to put his
money into' a proposition simply
because he has "faith" in it, probably not justified by good judgment. How many mining companies in the Lardeau have had
their properties examined by a
competent mining engineer? The
average stock company will not
pay enough to get a thoroughly
reliable mining man on tlieir ground,
in fact they don't want him there.
The usual "report" is settled for on
the basis of its value to the promoter. The greedy promoter will
not pay enough tor a good property.
All he wants is a piece of ground,
a miningengineerV'report," flashey
lithographed certificates of slock
and his nerve. The rest comes
easy. Ask a man to put his money
into anything else, but mining
stock, on earth without him knowing something about it and he
would think you were crazy. But
he buys mining stock just the same.
Why ? Because lie either expects
to get something for nothing or
locate the sucker born the following minute. There is good and
bad in all flotations of companies,
but surely the mining industry gets
more than its share of the latter.
"If the Western federation of miners would
invest the same amount of capital on a few j
good milles, as tlioy are spending; to protect]
their Interests, they could readily provide cm-
ployment for their entire membership, and all
would be equally Intorostod in the welfare and
proliis ol the undertaking."���Lardoau Eagle.
If the Eagle and other papers
who seem to be in the confidence of
the people who direct the miners'
unions could induce their Iriencls to
change their policy as indicated in
lhe above paragraph, there would
he no more complaint about hard
times in British Columbia. The
advice of the EAGLE to its friends,
the union miners, is sound and sensible advice, and if carried into
effect would not only put money
into their own pockets, but benefit
the country at large. In the present strike at Rossland and North-
port, union miners have lost and
spent more money than would buy,
develop, equip and operate several
lirst class mines. They have also
lost and spent more money during
this strike than they will get back
in increase of wages in thc next
ten years.���Calgary Herald.
While the Eagle agrees with the
Herald that a policy such as outlined above would result in good to
all, we can not for one minute admit that the miners would be
justified in throwing their principles
to the four winds. To begin with,
tbe Rossland strike has not cost the
miners a hundredth part of what
the Herald estimates. Were the
miners and other trade unions to
kneel nnd cringe to the whims of
every foreign mine manager who
happens to be temporarily at the
helm the whole community would
scon be reduced to the level of the
low-wage camera coal mining districts. A standard wage-scale has
been adopted in B. C. for miners,
and outside of Rossland it is paid
without a murmur. But if Rossland
was reduced to a low-wage camp,
others would soon follow. Hence
the necessity of winning the present
fight. The miners cannot afford to
lose it, and they will not lose it.
Once this fight is over, however,
the miners should jointly go into
business for themselves, as a side
investment.

With the Coast to Kootenay
railway the C. P, R. will have no
need of connecting Revelstoke with
the Crow's Nest as a through line.
Hence the change in the company's
construction plans in this district
means that our branch will be
cxpressely for local traffic. This is
ono reason why they want to tap
the most mines and get the most
tonnage with the least mileage.
It is unfair enough to the public
of Canada to let a few money-
grabbers corral all the salmon in
our rivers, but when the Dominion
government continues to run hatcheries to further the selfish interests
ofthe private opcralor it is well
nigh time the elector went to sleep
for  good.    At  present  8,000,000
Constant contact with the miners
and laborers  of   this   province has
impressed the writer with the heroism and   self-sacrifice   that goes to
make up the working classes. When
one ol their number  is injured by a
premature blast,   a  falling rock, or
the   thousand    and    one  mishaps
which may occur in a mining camp,
how willingly do we sec them come
to their injured   brothers assistance
with  money   and   sympathy.    The
workers    may    lack    polish,   but
they are   genuine.     Among   them
the real heart-throb   of humanity is
felt. They have faults, and grievous
ones, but their virtues  are sufficient
for us to have   no   fear   of the co
operative commonwealth   wrought
out of such material.    It is true that
they appear to be slow in wakening,
but they are wakening,  no doubt of
that.    Sooner or later they will free
themselves.    And  when   they   do
such shocking scenes   as have been
witnessed in  this  province,  on the
Fraser, at   Rossland  and on every
hand in a daily   struggle for existence, will vanish once and for all.

Y
Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat flench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because lhe wonderful mineral
developments during thc past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have thc old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but thc new finds and many test
ore shipments are exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
/_/ *W
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between tlie two creek forks; on
tlie Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself: and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is thc
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
oft in Ferguson.
Bec wist the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from theso. working1 mines.
Because this is the point whei
mining men coming into the dii
trict make their headquarters; t
they can walk or ride and retur
from most oi' the properties :,
one day or less.
���
���
Because ever) pound of ore from
these mines coming down the
bill lands firsl in Ferguson.
From here il will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where thc mines are
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural ae
vantage for the building up of a,
great mining center.
I1
i
i
������.*
But why give other reasons: We have the mines, thc pay roll, thc natural geo>
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc., and thc right kind of people to make
a town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will doth:
rest.   Come and see for yourself.

MAP
OFTHIS DISTRICT
Including Fish Creek and
Upper Duncan River, compiled by S. Shannon, B.A , and
A. P. Cummins, P. L. S., is to
hand, and nil orders will be
filled by the Eagle promptly,
The map is certainly the best
thing ever attempted in this
line which has come to our
notice. The Trout Lake divi.
sion is shown in black, the
Lardeau in red, and the Alnsworth in blue. A tenderfoot
could take a copy of this map
and find any claim in the three
divisions. The mountains,
creeks, wagon roads, trails,
railway routes, and the location
and name (by a unique index)
of every mineral claim in the
district is shown.
Next to visiting the country in
person this map takes first place.
In fact every geographical
feature is so well defined that
one can see at a glance the
nature ol our country, and the
trend of the claim locations
gives an intelligible idea of the
mineral belts running through
the camp.   It is certainly the
BEST     WORTH     FOR     ONE     DOLLAR
ever offered in the map line of
a mining camp. It is the first
complete map of the district and
should sell like tickets to the
Pan. Address your order, with
