While tho Lardeau district is receiving mire or less attention on evory
hand, the country just over the mountain range east of Ferguson���the Duncan river valley���promises to spring
into prominence at no distant date.
Tbe Eacile is enabled this week to
give some interesting news from that
section. K. (Jreokwell and Col. VV. C.
Bing, who were prospecting over there
last season, left Rossland again tbis
year on July 10th, via Nelson and Duncan Ci'tC'i for Hall's Landing. From
there tbey packed tbeir supplies to the
junction of the west fork and Duncan
over tho government trail. Here they
found the bridge gone, broken by
weight of snow, and tho stream too
broad to fall a tree across. They concluded to cross overasnowslido further
up and go on over the mountain to
Grouse creek, the lirst big creek on the
right bank of Duncan river, ub"ut six
miles up. Tbey took 542 pounds of
provisions, including blankets, steel
and powder, 4,000 feet up the mountain
in four trips, then circled round just
about timber life) t}W?

only way possible, by means of a gully
so steep that otic could drink by simply
turning round and bending the head.
They reached Duncan rivor on August
7th, and found a stream from 100 to 200
feet wide, roaring and boistrous, whore
they felled 11 troos beforo ono stuck,
and this ono at an angle of 45 degraos,
only three-quarters across tbe current.
Tbey kept falling trues until tiiey managed to cross witb their packs on the
11th, making twelve journeys over this
dangerous crossing. After that tbey

but as it hail to bave a QOUtaeb somewhere, tbey decided to push on. Thoy

Given and Nuia creeks (all named hy
those hardy prospeotors and accepted
by the government), It is a schist
formation; cut by slate dykes, both
heavily impregnated with cube iron,
some of the cubes boing over an
inch thick. Through this schist
in a Hurl luv.'ftt and southeast
direction runs u series of parallel quartz veins, lilling true lis-
surcs, both banging and foot walls
boing free. In a distanoo of 100
feet thoy counted 27 of those veins from
4 inches toll ft. in width, all showing
galena, copper 'and iron. The main
vein of 0 ft. apparently stands straight,

with a orossvoin of 5 ft. of concentrates,
connecting same with the next quartz
vein, which also shows considerable
galena. The whole series looks somewhat like tho spokes of a wheel)
radiating from a common contra, in
the mountain side. A later disturbance
created a new scries of leads, which
cut the formation in a southwest to
northeast direction, as in tho case on

north, on Nora crook. There are

Thciy packed off and on over 40 days,
loads from 50 to 75 lbs, over unbeaten
trades, and other natural obstacles;
but tbey consider themselves tis well
repaid, and tbe Eagle believes that
thoy are but tbo forerunners to what
will bo an important B. C. mining
eamp at some future date. Wero it
not foi* just such nen tbere would bo
no such camps as we possess to-day in
this wealthy province.

had provisioned themselves for three
months, but developed such enormous
appetites that tbey were all gono in
two months, which forced tbem to
come to Fe rguson sooner than tbey had
intended. They m.'tde tlio trip from
the claims 'to Ferguson In 3| days. Had
a bridge been built over tlie west fork
they could l'lave done it in two days
over a trail and with only the divide
near the Old Gold camp to cross.
Speaking of  -

pleased to hear the boom of dynamite

and future prospei 'ity. They ,'ound tlie
trail along the nt >rth fork in (splendid

any mountainous country, and complimented the foruman on his good
work. They regret, however, that/ tbo
government has not seen fit to ro-b uild
the bridge across the west fork , of
Duncan river, for, in that case, FerftW
son instead of Kasllo would be the,;r
outfitting point. The divide near the'
Old Gold is so late in getting rid of its

earlier. But Ferguson has no reason

mines to .Spencer City, which will soon
be completed. Mr. Miller has spent
two weeks around the Old Gold and
Duncan rivor valley and is now more
thoroughly convinced than ever that
tho Lardo-Dulican section must soon
como to tho front, providing the locution of Immense ore bodies farms any
factor in the advancement of a worthy
camp. That n railway will soon supplant the primitive trail is-hifl earnest
desire, and next season may sec hi**
hopes realized.
In all probability tho present gold
commissioner at Kevelstoke, Mr.
C-oepol tho government auditor, will
remain in ollicc. This should prove
entirely satisfactory to nil in this district. Thc new (���overumont auditor
has not been gazetted.
One of the most interesting trips it
bas ever been tlie EAGLE'S pleasure to
take was from Ferguson to the head of
Brown creek, via Triune creek and
over the Triune glji-fciortothe Morning
Star, Triune Fragtlon and I. X. L.
properties on the Brown creek slope.
The wagon road between hero and
Ten-Mile, six miles, is now in splendid
shape, and no diffloulty is encountered
by the ore-hauling teams as was tho
case last year. Tiie trail from Ten-
Mile to the Triuno mine is also in good
condition considering the traffic it has
to bear and itrf newness. After salsify-
ing the inner man at tho Triune
cabins, with mine host R. T, Bury, thc
EAGLE man, in company with Andrew
Ferguson, climbed to the workings
above, and there wo received surprises
enough to last us for the season. For
never beforo have we seen such extensive bodies of clean high grade silver-
lead ore. In the old upper workings,
wbero we had visited last season, in
the workings below, and what is most
important, in the lower workings; huge
bodies of ore woro '..eing minnd. The
ledgo was only tapped last week in tiie
long tunnel, but tho day we visited tbe
property every shot was increasing the
ore body in the face, and tho ore
becoming more like that encountered
abovo. The ledgo is about five feot
wide, witli a foot or more of clean oro
on tho foot*.wall and from two to four
inches of carbonates on tbo hanging
Wall, whilo between a rusty cork-like
v^'hito quart/ was with every shot
pitching out and thus widening tho
ore\body. It was surely a sight for
pessimists. Any person who can visit
this m\ine and not be convinced of tbis
camp's\ capabilities is indeed intently
blind, nor never has thero been a
bigger Ittigh-gradesllver-lend producer
found in all Canada. If not America.
Below tbo lower workings is ,ji big
surfaco shewing of romowhat lower
grado ore. Where stripped It appears
to lie an offshoot from tho main ledge.
But with the commencement of along
base tunnel! ail this will becomo
stoping groivnd, and unfavorable
weather alono will prevent its being
driven yet this fall. Lumber is now
being packed up aud tbo oapaelty of
tho present cabins will be doubled,
thus placing the owners, Ferguson
brothers, in a position to work moro
men, and there is certainly room for
lots of them underground now. At
presont the force is only from sixteen
to twenty niflt). A. P. Cummins, 1'. h,
S., and party aro at present engaged in
surveying tho group.
From the upper workings of tbo
(Triune we continued our way up the
(lliuiv, took to the glacier, upon which
f,resh snow had fallen, and mado onr
winy between yawning crevices and
rolling snow���miniature snows! ides���to
thle summit, landing on the huge rook
pe,pks on Morning Star ground. From
heiVe wo walked or slid down to the
smnill glacier below, and then over to
thelTriune Fraction, where W.Shannon land Dave Morgan aro driving a 50
ft. ctiosscut to catch the lead���undoubtedly Uhe old Triuno lead itself, for it
can Giftsily bo traced over tho summit.
Tho clou tractors aro now in .'10 ft. und

Fronli here a splendid view of the
Cromwell, just straight across ou tbe
opposite slope, is presented. Tho men

but thot falling' rock down the long

may be ouil* privilege yet this season.
Coming toack ovor tho draw to tlio
oast from tho Triune Fraction somo
500 feet wc find ourselves on I. X. L,
ground, just below tho Morning Star.
More a parallel lead to the Triune's.
(the same lead on the Triune creek side
as Vince Lade staked a good thing on a
few weeks ago), is easily traceable
down the west slope of a second draw
right to the Brown creek bottom and
on up over the opposite slope, upon
which other promising properties aro
located. Ou the I. X. L. a forco of
ten men aro now working, the property
having recently been bonded to Minnesota parties on working terms. A
cabin has been built, the roughness of
the weather having necessitated this,
supplies put in, and work has only
fairly started, but tho ledge is showing
up fairly well and a fow sacks of ore
from the foot wall aud carbonates from
tbe hanging wall havo already been
sacked. It is too early as yet, how*
ever, to determine tbe future value of
the property.
From these workings we retraced
our steps to the Triune mino, and
arrived back in Ferguson late tbe
same evening, having made tho entire
trip in the one day.

that though we fill our pockets with
our bands and perforce mortgago tho

for thi** camp was never so bright.
There was a time in tlie history of tho
Lardeau when tho Silvor Cup mino

owned by a>i old country company and
subjected to the usual manipulation.
Tho Nettie L. mino next sprung into
prominence, an 1 has been a drawing

shareholders hold a controlling interest in it, it is under practical management and gradually becoming one oT
the biggest silver-lead producers in the
province, a railway being the onlj
requisite to make it a regular daily
shipper employing from 100 to200men,

features of tbe camp's progress. It it.
doubtful whether there is another
mino in Canada with siieh capabilities
as are possessed in tho Triune. Noxo
season it will help the Lard ������au to put
the Slocan silver-lead mines in tho

The product of this mine will, how-
] ever, not create much railway tonnage

the spot. Tho Installation of machinery, supplies, etc., will of course
mean much for Ferguson'** increasing

more than half of them will continuo

fs Indeed an encouraging aspeot, and
there is not the shadow of a doubt but
what tho railway will be extended to
Ferguson next season. Locally, tho
buildings of Ferguson have been
doubled in number this season, and
there will bo morn mon working in tho
camp this winter than ever before tn

promises to bo tho liveliest months wo
have ever experienced. The business
houses have done a big supply business
this BQnsod and tho pay roll is larger
than over before, and still growing.

that we can make such strides of progress with an uncertain silver and lead

FERGUSOj), n. c.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1901.
No reasonable writer should find
fault with this or that man or corporation for amassing wealth at the
expense of its employes. Under the
system of competition there is nothing wrong about it, nor does the
Eagle blame them for taking
advantage of the opportunities
offered. But we do think the
electors who permit such a system
to exist are exceedingly blind to
their own interests to say the least.
Were the whole people to adopt the
same business principles as the
private operator or trust���and discard present-day politics���the same
results would be attained, except of
course that the millions of accrued
profit would go into the public
treasury for public purposes. Were
the people's trust to go into bi si-
ness this old earth would he near
enough a paradise tor the average
person. There would then be less
neeJ of making drafts on the next
world to create a temporary feeling
of "joy that passeth all understanding." Competition and profit are
the two most damnable evils of
society to-day. Eliminate both, ai d
the human family will rise to a
higher and nobler standard. To
place the accumulation of money
above joy and happiness is unbecoming a people of twentieth century enlightenment. Money, rather
than the spirit ol love, must needs
be our God under a competitive
system. And unless Canadians
soon undertake the ownership and
control of private monopolies, and
enter into business along tHe same
lines as these preferred socialists,
they will be tace to face with Ihe
undesirable conditions now existent
in Uncle Sam's domain. But will
we take warning and profit by their
sad experience ? New Zealand has
adopted enough of the people's trust
program to pronounce it the only
solution, but here we are, waiting
apparently for the same crisis that
brought that colony to a sense of its
duty. From present indications,
however, it is most probable that
British Columbia will be lhe first to
feel the chaos, and enact the remedy,
disgruntled stock manipulators,
sleepy politicians, and greedy private corporations to the contrary
notwithstanding.
value received for every dime of it. There is one thing for which some
There are too many people just like one must receive credit and that is
this correspondent���quite profuse(the policy adopted m the matter of
with       suppositions,       attributing
motives, making false accusations,
and doing plain everyday "knocking." All the Eagle asks is to. be
dealt with fairly���to be tried before
convicted. The amount of money
we have received from the Nettie L.
management would not pay. for the
shoe leather worn out in visiting
their property���let alone the newspaper space and type composition.
But the Eagle will always be tound
giving the mining news of this camp
for the benefit of its many subscribers and when they cease to appreciate our honest efforts in this
direction we will close up shop and
give someone else a show to stay
broke while continuing the good
work. Accusations, promises, talk
and drafts on the future are cheap,
but it takes money to pay printers
and bank managers.
If there is a mining man in the
Slocan who does not believe that
the government should build a
refinery we do not know his name,
says the Paystreak. Men who have
spent the best years of their lives
learning the business and have invested all the money they are worth
in mines are free in declarations
that relief can be found only in a
government refinery. Mining superintendents, managers, stockholders, foremen and workingmen who
know their business in all its dips,
spurs and angles are unanimous   in
roads and trails in this district for
the past two .seasons. Instead of
spending a tew dollars here an <)
there, a sufficient.amount has been
provided to put a bottom in mosi
ol the trunk roads and trails. The
wagon road between here and
Thomson's Landing will serve as an
instance. Last year some $8,000
was spent upon it (supposing it was
Joseph Martin) and this year practically no repairs have had to be
made. And it is well known that
had the old policy of patching been
in vogue the freighters would still
be cussing and all concerned inconvenienced. The new order,
entirely meets with the approval of
experienced trail builders in this
district.
The sad news of President Mc-
Kinley's unfortunate death was
received here by telephone on Saturday evening, and the expressions
of grief and sympathy on every
hand were unanimous, as much so
as when Queen Victoria passed
away and this is saying a good
deal. Theodore Roosevelt, will be
the succeeding president, the third
vice-president who has been mad*
president by the hand of an assassin.
In April, 1S65, Abraham Lincoln
was assassinated while witnessing a
play at Ford's theater, his assassin
being Wilkes Booth, an actor. In
1 July, 1.881, James Abram Garfield

the letter says: "I see you ire-
quently have many good words for
the Nettie L. mine, located near
your town; but what is your
private opinion of this property ; for
I suppose the items published are
furnished you and paid for." Oh
no! stranger, nothing so phat as
that. The Eagle hastens to riglu
the false impression obtained by its
Jersey City reader. What we have
said of the Nettie L. is our "private"
opinion, and not one single cent
have we ever received for such
service. The Eagle has been in
business for some two years and in
that timo we have received just
S16.75 for stationery and $25 for
subscriptions from Manager W. B.
Pool,    And we figure that they got
The Rossland miners' strike has
not been without its good features,
for it has at least shown up some
of the most unscrupulous manipulating and financing ever perpe-
traled on the unthinking British
investing public. Properties originally acquired for a few thousand
dollars were turned over to companies at as many millions. . When
the funds of one company ran out
another was formed to take over its
assets at a still larger figure, and
thus a profit was made by both the
manipulators and the original
shareholders. Shares were transferred to one company and then
resold at a margin to another,
owned practically by the same
people. But all this corruption
could not go on indefinitely, and the
crash came. A ledge of pure gold
wilh a mint thrown in could not
pay dividends on such outrageous
capitalizations. Until responsible
parties, more concerned in the
development of mines than the stock
exchange, acquire and operate the
big mines of Rossland that unfortunate city will be a hacknumber.
The unanimous manner in wh'ch
the interior press took upT.ios.
McNaught's idea of formulat;ng a
newspapermen's association was
deemed sufficient tor Mr. McMaught
to call a lormal meeting at the
Halcyon Hot Springs Sanilarium on
Monday, Sept. 30th. The congress
will last from Saturday to Tuesday.
The Eagle heartily accepts the
invitation, and it the walking holds
out we'll be there.
It appeals to the Eagle that more
local men should co-operate and
develop some of our many mining
properties in this camp. Outside
of sales very few local men have
made a dollar. There may be no
surplus money on hand, but even
labor combined would serve the
same purpose, and we fee! certain
the supply part of the deal could
easily be arranged. At present
eastern and old country capitalists
stand to make practically all the
big money out of our mines. Why
not co-operate and turn a lew prospects into shippers ourselves ?
Scab Italians imported by the C.
P. R. during the trackmen's strike
are raising several brands of hell
along the main line. Shooting
sticks and fighting is their long
suit. If some of them prove to be
anarchists and a few government
officials or some of the Royal party/
are murdered hy them, who will bi
morally responsible ?

"There is ono thing involved in tho

Ownership of his necessities and has all

FERGUSON
Is the Coining Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
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 Nettie L. Double
Eagle, Ophir-Lade, Silver Cup,
Triune, Metropolitan, Sunset,
Lone Star, Comstock and other
properties will operate the year-
round hereafter, and this winter
will see probably 400 men at
work, over 200 of which will be
engaged on the properties of
the first three named.
B B C A USB
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; .,is
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 lhe
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be learned to
transportation on the lake, ;l
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are ii
will reach Ferguson,
Because there is every natural advantage for thc building up of a.
great mining center.
But why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, the natural geo*
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc., and the right kind of people to make
a town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do thc
rest.   Come and see for yourself.
