The divide between Gainer Creek
und tlio littlo west fork of the Duncan
has always been ono of tbo most interesting and promising parts of the district. ���As time has passsed the
interests in this district has
not in the least subsided, and
we now seem to bo nearlng the stage,
when the early promise of that section
is about to bo fulfilled. The Had shot
has always been considered as ono of
the future mines of this camp. Long:
ago the ownors demonstrated to their
own satisfaction tho extent and richness of t!ie oro in their properly aud it
now stands crown-granted and one of
Lhe mo-it o extensively developed pr s-
tlesln'tho eamp. Somo .'too foet of
tunnel and shaft.have been driven on
the (edge. The ore consists of argentiferous galena and antimonlal lead and
copper sulphides. Several tons of this

In place throughout the workings,
The Lade situated about half *a
mile to tho south of the Bat! Shot has
long been of considerable interest to
the visitor in this eamp. Tho exceeding richness of the m'nerol of this
property in tho yellow metal has been
tbo chief drawing card. Outside of
telluridge ores it Is very unusual to
get such exceedingly high values In
gold as are here found. Ordinary
samples run from $500 to $2000 in gold
to the ton, while picked samples run as
high as $4000 to the ton. Siderite, the
carbonate of Iron forms the bulk of the
iQtlge matter. The gold seems to be
largely froe and is associated moro or
less intimately with bismuth glance.
In places the ledge carries iron
pyrltos whioh also has high gold
value**. The whole property is some-
what unique in its nature, nothing
like it having been yet discovered in
this camp.
Considerable work of a prospecting
nature has beon done on the group and
a small shipment was made a couple
of years ago, which netted the owners
very handsome retur.ne. The Lade
brothers speuk of putting an arrastreon
the properly next season, so that gold
bricks may be a feature of the output
of this eamp in tho near future.'
Situated   between the Had Shot and
the Lade lies the White Warrior group,
an   encouraging   prospect   with   good
showings ol galena and yellow copper
in the [contacts between the schist and
aud two belts of lime which traverse
tho three claims of  the group.    This
property   wns   recently, acquired by a
company at Lapeer, Mieh., and preparations are being  mado  for vigorous
development operations next   season,
A cojmnodlouB cabin has been erooted,
and work will  be   started   as  soon as
supplies can l>o taken up in the spring.
As yet thoso properties are tributary
to Ferguson, but situated as they are
on tho divide between the Lardeau and
tho Duncan, they will prove a factor in
inducing   better transportation facilities up tho   latter   river,    Below the
above groups, on the slope towards the
little   west fork of the Duncan lies the
property of tho Golden Circle Mining
Co.,   while  In   the valley of the little
west fork are situated the Primrose,
Guinea Gold and Old. Gold properties,

Smyth is a mining man of repute, having been the engineer for a number of
years for tho Oregon Steel and Iron
Works. Whon seen by v Miner representative in Kossland ho expressed the

treasurer of tho Kingston Gold mines,
who, in comdauy with some prominent
people of Portland, owns the control*
ing interest in the company, showed
Mr, Smyth over tho property, aud the
latter gentleman sampled tiie leads
most    carefully. The    Kingston
property, as mentioned in some former issues is situated ou tho western
slope of Lexington mountain, in the
Pish River basin, and contains besides
a high grade Steele galeda lead, a copper Vein and a second galena vein ;
also two quartz veins of free milling
ore, one vein being as far as exposed,
over 110 feet wide, Whu'e the other
vein Is about 15 feot wide. These two
quart/ veins promise to bring tho
Kingston to tho front very rapidly, as
tho quartz is of tho same character as
the Eva mine and Imperial, the former
property being bonded for 535,000 aud
tho Imperial for nearly the same
figure. A strong force of men is at
work on tho Imperial and 15 men are
at present at work at the Eva property.
Both properties show considerable
free gold to tbe naked eye.
Whilo sampling tho .'10-foot Kingston vein Mr. Smyth found gold and
took a lot of quartz with him for a tost
in Portland. This big lead is traceable throughout the property to tho
southeast, whieh is owned by Prof.
Blochberger individually, and through
the northwest tho lead is running
through the properties of the Anglo-
Lardeau Gold Mining Syndicate, and
undoubtedly will bo found on the
Brunswick property, which adjoins
Prof. Blochberger's properties, Mr.
Smyth who came up from Portland
to investigate for himself aud some
wealthy friends before making heavy
investments, expressed his entire satisfaction with the properties and the
country, and his willingness to invest
and give tho property a thorough tost
Prof. Bloekberger is. going lo leave
iua few days again for Portlanld to
make arrangements for tho winter
work which is intended to be oai'ied on
all winter witli a small force of men.
It is a well known fact that the veins
that have boen opened up in various
places in that district are of surprising
width and on this prpperty a vein 50
foet wide has been uncovered. These
veins aro perpendicular and iu good
position for development and very
littlo or no dead work has to be dono.
Three tunnels to drift on the leads on
the Eagle group have been started.
When they have been run to satisfactory depth a crosscut will bo run to
join No. I and No. '2 tunnel-*. The slope
of the hill is quite steep and good
depth can be obtained readily. On the
Imperial group, which is on the
opposite slope, tlio fourth tunnel will
be run. The men are at present engaged in opening up the vein to finda
location for tlio tunnel.     i
All the veins carry ore [of good paying values and undoubtedly tho company havo a good thing Although
but little work has been done there Is
a large amount of oi'i in sight.

Triuno  Fraotipp.
The Triune Fraction is located on
tbo Silver Cup hill on the south fork of
tho Lardoau and is situated ou the
famous Triune lead, In fact it is the
adjoining claim to the famous Triuno
mine, which is now tbo talk of the
whole district. There are a number of
wonderful claims located on this same
mineral belt, suoh as tho Nettio L.,
Brow, Towser, Silver Cup, Triune,
Triune No. 2 and Cromwell. The
owners while doing prospecting work
on tho property discovered a line leau

Considerable   interest   bus   always
been attached to tbe belts of rock dio-

camp in the region of the Silver Cup
aud Nettie L. mines.     Tlio nature ol
tho rock material   iu  thoso   belts ami
tho  occurrence   of mineral along aud
throughout them   led us to speak of
of them as dykes though we have been
very   doubtful   as   to   tlieir   eruptive
origin,   Mr, G. ii. MIckle, of tlie  Toronto  School  of  Sicnee,   who spent a
couple of mouths in this camp during
tho past season took   several samples
of   rock from these dykes back   oast

thorough microscopic examination and
is reported to havo pronounced  these
belts to be eruptive in   origin   and ol

have therefore   not   been   wrong   in
speaking of tbem as dykes.     Ofcourse
they     bave     become     considerably
changed since thoir intrusion and will
uow belong to tho class of metamor-

these   bolts are now known to have

In attempting to outline the position
assumed by tho hide pendent Labor

that the impression that wo are out for

The questions involved arc of too
serious a nature to permit such narrow
considerations,
The, I may say. almost criminal
Indifference shown hy the old parties
to tlie fact that Canadian labor is
being rapidly driven from every lield
nf industry on the Pacific coast; tbe
fact of 3000 of our countrymo.ii boing
robbed of their birthright by what
appears to be a collation between
government officials and cannery men
ou the Fraser river; the fact that tiie
C. P. R. is today discriminating
against our people in favor of an alien
race ; tbo fact that Canadian labor is
being displaced in our saw mills,
factories aud mines, our women driven
from domestic service, the law of -up
ply and demand in this connection
being nearly equal,and by the employment of these people in tliis capacity
an artlllcial over supply is being
created with toe result I'nat it rovdry
alien so employed someone's slbter or
daughter may be driven into prostitution to earn a livlihood.
Thc position assumed by both of the
old parties during the last session have
caused us to despair of relief In that

employed, and wc believe that It is
absolutely necessary ivu should .-end a

of others similarly situated will bo

believe that a small body of representatives working now in the house will be
able to bring a pressure to bear upon
the government in this conuecttou
more effectively than a sincere body
of professional men who will ho looked

Tho different Interests involved in

similar representation and hope by
such methods to be able to - fegnard
our interests as the Interests of others

. 1 LESSON LV POLITICS
From u i oview of tho recent general
elections it is evident that the government ownership of railways is to be
���.lie next issue in Canadian polities,
The signal success which attended the
avuwed advocates of government railways, both in eastern and western
Canada, is a sufficient evidence that
popular sentiment favors the change.
Hon. A. G. Hluir. minister of rail'
ways, came out llatly during last
session with the declaration tbat the
time had arrived when the government must own the railways or the
rail ways would very soon own tho
government.
At a public meeting in West York,
Bhortly before polling day, N. Clark
Wallace was asked for his views on
the railway question. His answer was
clear and to the point, He said: "I
believe the time has arrived when the
government should own all tbe railways." Clark Wallace was elected by
a majority of 900.
W. F. McLean,, who has beon dubbed 'tbo man with the knifo" on
account of his propensity for knifing
railway deals, is not only an ardent
advocate of public ownership but lias
adopted the People's Party platform in
its entirety. At the general election
of'WI, when ho ran as a conservative,
McLean was elected'by tbe narrow
majority of seven votes. This time his
plurality is 715.
Kloapferln South Wellington, Me-
i'.wing in South Huron, McCarthy iu
South Slmcoe and Kemp tn East Toronto are government owuership men
from the province of Ontario who were
returned by good majorities.
In the west, Puttee's majority in
Winnipeg totalled over 1100 voles, i.nd
government ownership is his strongest
plank. Richardson, of Lisgar, who
was declared out of the Liberal party
because bis railway policy was distasteful to Clifford Sifton, gained a
splendid victory over tbe combined
power of tbo ('. P. It. and the machine
pollticanson both sides. Frank Oliver,
wlio lias gone hand and hand witb
Richardson, in opposition to corporate
railroads, was returned by a comfortable majority in Alberta, and Ralph
Smith got all tho votes he wanted and
enough to spare to make several
majorities under ordinary circumstances.
ln fact from Atlantic to Pacific, it
seems that Hugh John is the only
government railway candidate who
met defeat, and it is worth remembering that Hugh .Joint, after being
elected premier of Manitoba ou tbat
policy, made no effort to carry out his
ante-election promises.
Hero Is a deep lesson forthe electors
ol   Vi'lr-l'arili.io-Kiioleiiay.      On   the
sixth of Dei ibi'r they will bo asked
to cbooso a candidate, .and it will be a
great mistake if they do not choose a
nutu who can be depended on to support the government railway propaganda whenever the opportunity
presents itself. In candidates Galliher anil McNeill the people can place
but slight confidence. They are both
party men, ami their loyality to tlieir
party is likely at the critical moment
to outweigh their loyality to thoir
enlistments.
Chris. Foley is an independent candidate. Ho owes allegiance to neither
party. His hands are free, and an
acquainteneo with the man is sufficient
guarantee that no party affiliations will
ever be permitted to stand between
liim and his duty to his constituents.

There is absolutely no remedy for

The working man who votes for a

that is his, robs him under his very

starvation and want and often his sister or daughter to prostitution, is mad,

Great Godl the possibility of another
ten years of this is simply appalling.
Vote for Cliris. Foley and help stay the
herds of Chinese and "little brown

working men of British Columbia.
THK MIMSTKIi'S CALL.
The othor day 1 heard a man assert
that ho never knew a minister to
accept a "call" unless the change
meant a substantial increase of salary.
Perhaps you have hoard tho story of
tlie preacher who received an invitation from a congregation, accompanied
by tho oitor of ti stipend much greater
than he was then earning, "is your
father going in leave us?'
enquired a neighbor of the son of tho
reverend gentleman, "i don't know
its not settled yet," replied tlie youth
".My father is in the parlor praying for
guidance, and my mother is in the
kitchen packing up the things." Thus
tho conscientious preacher who gets
a "call'' often finds himself in a delicate situation. For my part, however,
t have long thought that, to some
extent, preachers are themselves .to
blame for the sarcasms to whicli they
are exposed. I think it would be
much better if they would boldly
declare that tho laborer is worthy of
his hire, instead of making a show of
hesitation before they decide to accept
offers that are an improvement on the
positions they hold. Aftor all, tho
man of the world likes a manly man
and he does not think loss of the
preacher who frankly confesses that he
is mado of common clay, and that whilo
he does his host to persuade his fellows
to do what Is right; shows ho also
thinks of his own future, and of the
welfare of his wife and children.���

That socialism is making rapid
headway in thia country is not to be
denied says tlio Slocan drill particularly in tlie western section. Canada,
howover is not alone in this respect, as
the United States shows healthy progress, the people, as they get to understand the principles of socialism,
realizing that it comes nearer meeting
tho various phases of their existence
than any other cult. In Soutli Dakota,
the Hirst territory on the continent to
make the experiment, the*people have
adopted the initiative and referendum,
anil it is giving tlie greatest satisfaction. Not only does it. permit of
direct legislation by the people, but it
lias cleansed politics to a remarkable
extent. Canadian legislators would do
woll to copy South Dakota in this
matter, even belt only to purify the
politics of thu country.

Worthy of Careful Consideration
By All Classes.
IT'S WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT
And the Old  Parties Are Unequal
to the Occasion,
To the EloCtorsot Vnlu-Cariboo :
ln requesting your support to my candidacy
for tbo Dominion House of Commons, it Is due
to you that I give public expression to my
views on tbo several planknof the platform of
tho Indopondont Dabor Party:
1, Compulsory education has become a
recognljsod necessity in most countrios ami as
such baa my hearty endorsement.
2, Legal work day, H liuurs.
Modern Invention hasso enormously Incrooa-
ed the productive power of man thai his wants
���jun be supplied witli a fraction of tin; time and
effort heretiifore necessary for that purpose.
Labor as well as capital should benefit by these
changed conditions. The H-hour law is a stop
Inthatdircetion and I shall heartily endorse
any legislation looking to that end,
8. Government inspection of industries.
Under modern economic conditions the management of industrial concerns figure on results, not thc methods by which they arc to be
obtained. An ovcrsupplled labor market enables tlujin to Impose on employes any conditions tbey'may deem necessary. Protest as a
rule means dismissal from service and probable want to their little ones. In throwing the
strong arm of the law about these children of
��� misfortune you are simply folluwing thu teachings of the meek and lowly Jesus, who said
suffer tlie little ones to come unto me, for of
such is tlie kingdom of heaven.
4. Abolition of contract system.
The abuses that have grown up under the
contract system as outlined in the first issue
*" ofthe Dominion Lalmr Gazette should convince
even the hide-bnund partlsmn of the necessity
of thc enactment of such a law.
5. Public ownership of franchises.
Our experience in the control of the postal
department, public schools, public highways,
municipal lighting plants and (waterworks Is
sufficient ground for thc extension of the same
system to railroads, telegraph, telephone, and
express business. The experience of penplc in
New Zealand, Australia, Germany anil elsewhere has demonstrated that those (unctions
can bej performed by the government with a
very great Advantage to the people and I most
heartily endorse legislation looking to lhat
end.
5. Prohibition nf Asiatic emigration and the
educational test.
Thc presence here in large numbers of this
non-assimilating nice robs Canadian labor of
Its birthright. Every Mongol landing upon
our shores lessens rather than increases our
population. The white laborer which he replaces would as a rule marry and settle among
us, increasing the population by at least three.
This means to tho merchant less mouths to
feed, and less backs to clothe, to the doctor
Icbs demands for his services, to the transpor-
tation companies less? traffic, to the dentist less
teeth to llll. to the mechanic less buildings to
erect, to thc real estate dealer less demand for
properly Including less force for the same, to
the farmer less stile for produce-to the newspaper man less papers to he sold, to tbe
preacher smaller congregations, and to the
bootblack fewer shoes to shine. Their presence
works injury to all branches of the economic
system. I oppose thoir coming here on the
same grounds ! would oppose the taking of
more passengers Into an open bout already
loaded to thc sinking line in mid-Pacific.
Every Chinaman occupying a position in domestic, services interferes with the natural laws
as applying to the industrial body, robbing our
women of employment naturally belonging to
them to the extent that for every Chinaman 80
employed some one's sister or daughter Is
driven to prostitution, evolving a ra^e problem destined to breed seas of blood and that
will some day mantle the Canadian cheek
with abliHi for his country's shame.
7. Abolition of child labor.
An economic system that drives the child
from tbo cradle to the factory to compete with
its own father Is certainly the legitimate child
of an industrial system having greed us its
basic principle Legislation along l'nes oppos-
eiMo this will receive my hearty support.
8. Abolition of tho|350 deposit.
Under conditions*whero all arc amenable to
the law and assume the responsibility of defending the country's Hug and institutions all
should be entitled alike to aspire to tin; highest position In the gift of their countrymen
without boing taxed for tbo privilege of ,w doing.   I would repenl thai law,
ft. Compulsory arbitration.
Compulsory arbitration. as applied In New
Zealand looms upon the horizon of progress
not as a dream, but as a practical method of
reconciling the conflicting Interests of labor
and capital,aud h destined, I think, In the
Dear future, If applied, to prevent thoso periodical Industrial wars and lond a security to all
branches of business Midi us is Impossible
under existing conditions and as such rocctvoi
my hearty approvul.
10. All elect Ion days to be made public holidays.
f would also favor the passage of a law making lhe exercise of the franchise compulsory
for the following masons: First���Monoy can
and doos purchase tbo votes of the drunkard,
the sew-r hog and criminal, the vote of tin
Intelligent but Indifferent citizen would coun
ter balance this evil, and 1 believe it Is as much
the duty of every citizen to poll Ills voto as it
Is to pay his taxos. in making this a compulsory duty you are simply compelling him to do
that by the ballot which he Is alreiu
polled, to do by the bullet-defend thc
' inslltihiony of his country.
12    Abolition of the Senate.
I look upon the upper house as a useless and
extremely annoying political luxury, as a
stumbling block to progressive legislation, as a
home for political Imbeciles, who seem to havo
resolved themselves into a political Inquisition, who pounce upon every progressive
measure that passes the lower house, brands it
as heresy and proceed to pronounce tho sentence of political damnation upon all accordingly, aud if any little effort I can make can
assist in exterminating lhat aristocracy In
politics I can assure you It will be exercised
with the greatest of pleasure.
Trusting that my Ideas on tho several subjects will meet your views, and that I will
receive your support, I remain,

At a recent election in Kentucky a
local politician induced a lot of negroes
to shoot craps. They were then
arrested for gambling nnd lost thoir
votes by being locked up. This Is a

The Poo-bah captain on the arm
broke it into the editor of tbo Eaole
ou his way out last week. Farm had
transportation on the steamer Lardeau,
but that boat not boing on that day, he
was informed by "Poo-bah" that he
would have to cough up a good Canadian "buck" or he would I ave le
swim to Arrowhead. Not having taken
the precaution to leurn to swim when
Ih; whs young, but having oo![6cted
$1.30 from delinquent subscribers before leaving, l.e was spared the necessity of starting in now. The mail car-
riersays when he was leaving it looked
as though the captain would have to
weather the fiercest storm that ever
blew bis way, but up to the hour of
going to press ho is still able tu get
around.
A tenderfoot's first impression nf a
mining camp is anything but encouraging, 'The three or four betels and as
many stores mean nothing to him and
three out of four, who have seen tie
prospector start out with his pack and
the pack train wend its way up the
mountains with supplies, will cull
mining a hard proposition and' hit the
trail back east without the faintest
idea of the country's resources. Not so,
hovever, when one strikes Ferguson.
The closo proximity of the mines und
the groat conlldenco expressed in them
by miners and townsmen alike excites
'his curiousity and he will hit tho trail
lor the mines instead, and when ho
gets to the Nettio L. and sees tlie pile
of sacked ore whioh he is told represents $50,000 nnd tlio output this winter
will be six or sevon times that much,
and that the Lardoau will have 10or 12
shippers like this next year, he feels
like kicking himself down the hill to
Ferguson lor not coming here sooner.
