J. Livingstone has been demon-
strating lo the people of the Lardeau, generally, what a man with
perseverance, nerved with it dcep-
seatcd conviction as lo the latent
resources lying hidden in his claims,
can, almost single-handed accomplish towards the development ol
those resources, and the making of
his properties attractive.,to the intending investor,
A short time ago he uncovered a
fine showing of high-grade ore on
the Ruffled Grouse claim on Trout
Creek, thus mailing- that already
very desirable property much more
valuable. Now on lho Rambler
claim near 8-Mile, on the South
Fork of the Lardeau, be has, by
patient pounding, made the solid
rock expose its secrets. Dining
I lie past week an Eagle representative visited the properly, and was
shown over Uie ground by its lucky
owner. The properly is situated on
the same " dyke " as the Nettie L.,
and lho. work done is in the dyke
near lis hanging wall. There is ore
scattered all through the dyke al
this point, but Jim is confining his
attention mostly to some good
sized stringers of clean ore, which
seem to come from the hanging
wall of the dyke. These stringers,
of which there are some six or eight
exposed, vary in thickness Irom
two to six inches, and from
the tunnel which he is driving, he
has sacked up between three and
four hundred pounds of clean ore,
besides having a ton or more of
good concentrating ore on the
dumps. The clean ore assays 82
oz. of silver, and $1.20 in gold,
while the carbonate oreencountered
assays ;8 ozs. in silver, and t|lio in
Jim intends to continue tha present tunnel to lhe hanging wall of
the dyke, when he hopes, not without good reason, to uncover a
larger body of clean ore.
It is very gratifying to those who
are looking with interest upon the
camp to see another, or.e of the
pioneers thus coining into his reward.
The cute boys from across the
line whose interests lead them annually to Ferguson (and it goes
without saying that they know a
good thing), held, high jinks on
Monday last. The Star-Spangled
Banner and the Union Jack blended
well together, and in the evening
the hills reverberated with the roar
of the pom-pom and the splniz-sphui
of the squib. The festivities were
kept up until a late hour, but good
humor and brotherly love was everywhere in evidence.

Tho Hon. It. I*'. Green, Commissioner
of Lands and Works, antl our representative in the Provincial Govern-,
ment, paitl a visit to Ferguion on Tuesday lust. Tho hon. gentleman reports
tho country in a nourishing condition,
and the Lardeau especially Is claiming
notice. He has b-ion .woll received all
along the line, and thero have boon no

Altogether everything looked very
rosy for tho future campaign.
On Tuesday night a deputation of
the Ferguson Trades' Council wero received by tlio lion, gentleman. The
object of thn deputation was to obtain
his syiiipatli ��� und support to their
efforts to se'euro Justices of the Peace
and it Court House lor Perguson, The
delegation pointed out tho growth and
Importance of the town as the mining
centre ol tho .Lardeau, and the hon.
gentleman wns surprised thut. such un
application wits not made before, ami
promised his hearty co-operation in
tlio project. As far as tho Court House
was concerned, that would be out of
his department, but hu would use. hli

The deputation wore Messrs. Huther

On Wednesday, Mr. Green, accompanied by E. G. Chiptiiiin, Mr. McPherson, and several local ���.-entleincn
paid a visit to .1-Mile, where Mr. S.vin*

The 1 arty reached town greatly edllied

In course of conversation witli the

The Liberal press with one accord declare lhe Dundonald incident closed. They will have an

quite in tlie order of things that the

a fallen comrade. Tlio slide vas about,
2,100 feet Wide, and on this occasion
deviated 1.400 foot out of the ordinary
course, carrying with it trams, derricks, terminal, compressor-home, and
everything in its path to destruction. Bilt in tho ili-rht for dear life,
all wore not sufloeasful in gaining a

there was a stillness among thorn -thoy

The adverso action of Tool vs. Moi
gan et ;i! was terminated a!. Nelson last
week, and as announced in tho columns
of our last issue, tlie verdict was in
favor of the defendants, the jury holding that the Lucky Jack was a valid
aud Btibsistentclalm. Notice of appeal
was given.
If the money for tbo appeal is forthcoming within ten days the case will
likely drag ou for months, and the
litigation wili costan-enormous amount
of money. We are informed, though
unofficially, that the plaintiffs will see
the matter through. It is to be hoped
that the matter will be settled one way
or the other as soon as possible, as the
mining camp of Poplar has suffered
through the tylng-up of thc Tamous
Lucky .lack. Mining men sliould take
the lesson of this litigation to heart
and without delay meet and formulate
a scheme wherein their Interests would
bo safely guarded by experts. There
is no reason why the government
should uot sanction the formation of a
mining tribunal, with a recOKDl'/ed
government agent presiding at all
hearings. A great saving of valuab
time aud money would thus be etl'eetcd.

Throughout tbe day all the stores
were compelled to remain open to
supply the wants of thc prospectors
who continually arrived, but in the
evening the pent-up patriotism of
thc citizens burst out in all its fulsome gladness. Congratulations

sward adjoining the King's Hotel,
it was a howling success, and a
jovial time was spent. The -American clement joined forces with

The Eagle takes pride in verifying its assertion of last fall that fre:
gold was to he found near Ferguson
in large quantities. The sensational strike by Will Davie in Septem
ber caused a stampede to the sp ���'.,
bat the snow boat them, and tlu
truth so far as* i<i,\*, was concerned
was lolt untold. " Our I ady ol tlu
Snows" clothed lh.' secrets o!
Mnlh.'r Earth in .her heaviest winter
garb, and the rustlers were defeated
lor the nonce. Hut Spring came
and with her Will Davie, J. Gran',
and Pfit Murphy, win; straining at
the leash were perforce to sit tight
until Old So] got in His fine work,
All conies to he who waits and as
soon as the passes were moderately
sale, the trio had vanished lo continue their spell of activity. At tho
closing down of the winter, as fl r.'-
sult of the report of the rich strike,
fourteen claims were staked and recorded in a few hours.
We were not prepared for so
early n confirmation of the good
news, but on Sundny last Davie
strode into '.own ami proudly exhibited specimens from the claim.
They were not sparing with tlieir
specimens, and all the hotels nre
in the possession of huge lumps,
which are being generally admired,
and the modest chunk at the Engle
office is securely held down.
The above mentioned trio have
been engaged so far ii- stripping the
ledge, anil a 5 ft vein is laid bare
which carries free gold in such
large quantities that they claim it is
visible to the naked eye anywhere,
and can be freely picked out.
The Eagle rmtn suggested to the
jllb.ilant Pavie that there was a probability of his enthusiasm getting
the better of his judgment, and his
estimation being* too high.
"Too high!" broke in Grant,
"Go and see Sam Shannon ; you'll
get the I ruth there- he's got the
assays.    I've done."
" Sam could have been lhe richest man in the Lardeau to-day had
he adopted crooked ways," said
Hill Davy. " His assays are too
honest but that's go.ul enough for
us these days."
The Irio were so anxious to convince our representative that a
promise was extracted from him to
visit their bonanza, or thc option of
bein_r dragged there was offered;
but the Eagle man begged off lor a
day or two���such indulgence being
granted on their learning of the
necessary and speedy development
required on his own " lead claim "
down at the Printeries.
On making enquiries, we learn
that the. free gold on sight will
average $200 to the ton, and that
the first specimen assayed $11,032.
and the average wasjab oz. ?*5.

FRIDAY,  JULY  8,   1904.
'Twould be a labor of love, irrespective of its not being consistent
with decorum, were we to soar to
lhe housetops and screech aloud
the praises of the Lardeau. Bui
we are painlully aware that such an
act would be antagonistic to the
true interests of the country. Our
way may be slow, but at least it is
sure���and that is the point we are
anxious lo drive home lo the enquirer, to the man searching tor a
fruitful field of investment. We
������hall continue our hammering, even
if by so doing we offend his pride
and faith in his own good judgment.
How many times, Mr. Investor,
have you been compelled to " pull
down the blind " through following
the fulsome flatteries of journals
who have " axes to grind ? " Even
if we adopted the course of booming
every proposition of the district, we
at least would have the satisfaction
of assuring the investor with truth
that no private interest or silent
partner arrangement emanates from
this office, lt is our aim to instil
into the minds of those seeking information, faith and confidence in
the Lardeau and our assertions, and
we leel lhat sooner, or later truth
will cut deep, and the desired class
will cast in their lot with us. That
is the reward we seek.
It has fallen to our lot lately to
visit some of the finest properties
oi an embryonic nature that have
ever been stripped, and it needs but
a visit to Ferguson by an expert to
learn the truth. We have free gold
almost at our doors ; we have lately
and such rich strikes that we are
almost safe in asserting that three
shippers have been added to our
list. We have a responsible body
of men, a Trades Council, whose
interests lay with the progress of
the town, and visitors to our burg
need have no fear of anything of a
' bunco " nalure.
To the reader who is not conversant with Ihe geography of the Lardeau it will come as a surprise to
learn that here, right here, three of
ihe richest mines in Canada are to
he found. Who is there that has
not heard of the famous Triune, of
which the (own of Ferguson is
justly proud, and the enterprising-
management and shareholder! to be
congratulated ? Who is there, interested in mining, who has not
followed wilh absording interest the
installation ol Ihe concentrating nnd
chloridising plant of the Silver Cup
Mines ? This is a glorious, gigantic
success. " In rock, and out���
Hl*|.|.ion." There is scarcely! any
appreciable percentage of loss
throughout the whole process.
The Nettie I.,, the Silver Cup, the
Triune! What names to conjure
with ! The shipment of ore for the
past three years by these mines, and
the gross values obtained, are more
than the nine principal shippers of,
July 2nd should prove a red-letter
day for Ferguson. The wise men
Irom the east will now have an opportunity, of collaborating with the
wise men of the west. " Tell it
not in Oath���whisper it not in the
streets of Askelon "���we have now
a representative body of men who
will look to the interests ol Ferguson first, last, and always. Uefore
the "100 late" juncture of ihis
epoch is reached, we shall arise as
one man and stand to our guns.
All are determined to push the good
thing along, and our congratula
lions are extended to the Board who
are anxious that ourinterests should
be safeguarded. The new Board
will now meet in conclave to devise
ways and means ot averting such a
miserable piece of bungling of a
former occasion, which has robbed
Ferpuscn cl thousands of dollars.
What has been done cannot be
undone, hut an effort will be made
to prevent trams running over our
heads' en any similar future occasion.
What was accomplished on Saturday night should have been consummated a dozen years ago, and
the results would have proved fruitful. Everybody who has the true
interests of lhe burg at heart will
not fail to see the importance oi
the project, and all should assist the
Board in their efforts to give reliable information to the enquirer.
