The Great Western and Double Eagle Companies
Great Progress Has Been Made During the Past
Year on the Great Western.
The Groat Western Mines, Liifllted,
hold their sixth annual general meeting* in thoir offices tit Ferguson on
Wednesday, July Sth, commencing at
4 p. in. There wero present CI. S. McCarter, 1). (!. Forbos, S. Sutherland
and E. G. Hadow. Tlie chair was occupied by G. S. MeCarter and Secretary E G. Hadow recorded the minutes. The directors' report'.was read,
discussed and adopted, then the balance sheet and a detailed statement
covering operations, expenditures, etc.,
were produced and adopted,
The election of ollicers and directors
followed, whon, on motion, S. Sutherland was elected a director, nnd tho ro
tiring directors, A. I). Kirby, J. D,
Walker, D. (',. Forbes and G. S. McCarter were re-elected.
Following immediately after the
general meeting a directors' meeting
was held, there being present G. S.
McCarter, D. G. Forbes. S. Sutherland
anil 15. G. Hndow. On motion, tlie following officers were elected for the
current year:
President, Mr. J. I). Walker, London, England. Vice 1'resident and
Manager, .Mr. D. G. Forbes, Ferguson,
B. C.j Secretary, Mr. E, G. Hadow,
Ferguson, 13. C.
The Great Western company owns a
large number of claims in the Lardoau, somo on Upper Arrow lake and
others in tlie Lardeau proper. Tho
claim on which the most work has
been dono is the Xottio L., two and
one-half milos above Forguson, and
anothor that has boon given a lot of
attention is tho Ajax, adjoining. The
Nettie L. is the star property ot the
company and is the ono from whicli
most of tho ore has been shipped.
Just about a year ago the English
shareholders purehasod a controlling
interest and Mr. D. G. Foi bos was appointed manager. Since that time the
mino has not suffered fo:1 want ol energetic and competent government, but,
on the other hand, extensive :])liitis for
enlarging the mine, cheapening the
cost of producing tho oro and Increasing the capacity, which were decided
on a year ago, have been faithfully
carried out, and still further additions
to tlie outside equipment ure in course
of erection at this lime.
In November last an air compressor
plant was installed and has since boen
running steadily anil satisfactorily.
Since November, 3,001 foot of development has boon done, making with what
had previously been (lone, (1,000 feel.
A very large quantity of second class
oro having accumulated on the dumps
ti'nd in the stopes, the company decided
i�� '.'i'M an aerial tramway to carry
this ore down to the Silve,' Cup concentrator, near the town of Ferguson,
a id the wink of building the tram is
how progressing.
During tho past year, closed on June
JO, there was mined and shipped by the
company from the Nettie L. mine
1,420.Ml tons of ore from which was
realized $70,012.62, yielding a net profit
Of $40,224.85. When one takes into
consideration that since about .January
20th lust, there have only beon a few-
days when transportation was opon and
ore could be shipped, lb will be real
ized that  tlio   showing for the Great
Western company is excellent.
Since the reduction works and tram
wore decided on no qrehns been mined
for shipment, but when everything is
in readiness for handling and trealin
we believe many pooplo will bo surprised at tlie output and the receipt;
that will bo shown ut tho annual meeting of 1004 will look good to the share*
holders. Many other improvements
havo boen mado in connection witli the
abovo company during the year, such
as thc building of a large kitchen and
dining room at tho Nottie L. and a
telephone connecting the mine with
the offices in Ferguson and from tlio
offices to thc ore sheds on Trout lake.
The annual general mooting ol the
Double Eagle Mining & Development
Syndicate was held on Wednesday
July 8th, at, 8:30 p. m,, in the offices of
tho Great Western .Mines, Limited
There were present D. G. Forbes, G. S.
McCarter andil. G. Hadow.
The directors' report was presented

financial statement were also read and
adopted. Mr. E. G. Hadow was nominated and elected to tho board of directors and Messrs. O. A. Kirby, .1. D.
Walker, W.M. Brown, G. S. McCarter
and D. G. Forbes, the retiring directors, were all re-elected.
Immediately following the general
meeting there was hold a meeting of
directors, when officers for tjjm ensuing
year wero elected us follows: Presi

Women Mino W i.rkerK,
A recent article printed in eastern
daily papers discusses interestingly tho
subject of women mine workers in Bel-
glum. Coal mines are worked to depths
of 4.000 and even 4,JOO feet, tho veins
being on a pitch whicli sometimes is
great as 00 degrees, men and womo
being at work side by side. Tho drifts
and inclines are poorly ventilated, tlie
heat intense and there is great danger
of explosions. Women work in garments not unliko a bicycle costume, of
blue linen cloth and lightest weight.
Their hair is enveloped in a handkerchief, which excludes tlie coal dust.
Girls begin work at the age of 14 years
and work 12 hour shifts. Tlieir main
duties aro to move small mino cars
weighing over 800 pounds to and from
! the different entries, and carry mine
timbers to the miners. Some of the
drifts uro only threo foet in height
and to move a car a girl is compelled to
crawl on her knees, carrying a snf.ty
lamp weighing two pounds in her teeth.
For such labor she. is paid 50 cents per
day. With all the unsatisfactory conditions which exist in tho coal milling
districts of tliis country, women bave
novcr been employed therein during
the past tliree or four decades as miners, only in isolated cases.

getting everything In good shape to
turn out gold bricks These various
works and the development which hud
been done have required a large
amount of funds, but the company has
been able to successfully finance it all
without issuing a prospectus or offering
shares to tlie public.
Full particulars as to the work, machinery and finances, will be contained in tlio company's annual report, to
tho shareholders, which will bp printed forthwith.

FRIDAY, JULY 17,1903
While it is true that the McBride
government is giving the Lardeau
Setter treatment than was accorded
tlie district under previous administrations, yet the importance of the
Lardeau and the way it is being
opened up by large plants being installed, make it highly important
that every encouragement should be
given that is possib|e by the government, especially in fhe way of keeping the roads (eadjiig; fa f)ie mines
in good condition so that heavy
ipachinery may be hauled in.
por several years back nut enough
itlention lias been given to repairs
of this nature, let alone new work.
While, as we said above, the pres-
���nt government is doing better, but
nnt nearly enough by any means.
The bridges are geltjng very weak
and need repairs all lhe way from
Benton to Ten Af .le, above Ferguson.
The part that rnqst urgently needs
repairs, is lhe section between Ferguson and l,;ig!,t Mile, qyef which
very heavy loads will Ijaye to be
hauled. True, Mr. Mcpherson, the
road supervisor, has four men making repairs on this road, but there
sliould be j j men, if the road is to
be put in repair lo be of gpod service ihis season.
Another piece oi road that need:;
more men is that frum Beaton to
pamborne. It is also very important that tbis work should be completed durine July, for much inconvenience is caused to mining men,
I canisters and everyone interested
in and about pamborne by the very
had condition of the road.

We may add, howeVfcr,1 that the
Double Eagle Co. have not shown
the activity exhibited by the other
companies, and nothing definite has
been learned (if their plans for the
current year. ' At the same time the
Double Eagle Co. owns 12 or more
claims that have very fine showings
and with development they ought to'
be all right, lt is expected that
operations will be resumed before
long.       _^^_^___
The roule from Nelson to Ferguson via the Lardo branch railway is
now open and regular trips are being made. From now on till
Xmas we shall in all probability be
tree from annoyance and inconvenience caused by an interruption in
traffic on either of the two routes
into the Lardeau. We have only
nicely entered upon our best season
and although it has up to the beginning of this week been found very
difficult to get in or out, yet unusual
activity prevails all over the Lardeau. Particularly is this true ol
Ferguson, Camborne, and in the
new gold field of Poplar creek.
The present year is turning out the
beit for the Lardeau that has ever
been experienced.
Ferguson ha. he-*" chock full of
mining men lor t|)e past ten days,
and lhe five hotels were lull every
night to the attics, The feature of
the week, which caused the unusual
crowd to gather, was the occurrence of the annual general meetings of three of the big mining
companies that have their headquarters in Ferguson, viz.: Thi
Clreat Western Mines, the Double
Eagle and the Ppliir-Lade Mining
Syndicate, Especial reference to
lhe meetings may be seen on the
Ilrst page of this paper.

Ophir-Lade companies have largely

go into detail now, for the Eaole
has kept its readers posted right

progress was made, but we will add
