A Qood Pointer to the Man Who
Contemplates Buying Stock.
LEGITIMA TE BUSINESS
Too Muoh Stock Manipulating and
Hot  Enough  Judgment  Used
in Purchasing Properties is
Disastrous to All Concerned in the End.
The Spokesman-Review has said
before, but It will bear repetition, that
"the safety of the individual, the
standing of mining as an Industry, and
the prosperity of the mining camps
themselves should call for constant
warning against loose and careless
methods ot investment."
With many who dip Into mines, one
question seems to suffice���"What will
it assay?" The assay Value of a piece
of ore Is but one of the many Important
considerations ln determining the
value of a prospect, and often the least
important. One of the greatest gold
mines ln the world���the Treadweil, In
Alaska���yields millions from ore that
return.) less than $4 per ton. Other
properties that give legitimate assays
of thousands of dollars per ton tre
worse than valueless, because they
would never pay, no matter how they
were developed.
Before the prudent man Invests In a
mine, he will study every polntof
bearing, the location, the width of the
vein, the width and length of the pay
ehute, character of the ore, the
character of the formation, the topography of the claim, the title, and
above all, the amount that will probably have to be expended before tho
property can be called a mine.
Men guided by these precautions
have always a chance of finding fair
rewards at mining. Men who disregard
them have hardly one chance In a
latter element, the wild-catter thrives
and the swindler profits.
In a general way, It may be said that
no man of limited means and grave
responsibilities should plunge Into a
business of which he knows nothing.
Before he-parts with his money, the
man of limited means and duties to
others should nsk himself whether he
can afford to lose the amount required
in the undertaking���whether the loss
would deprive his family of the necessaries and comforts of life, and his
children ot a fair education.
The mining resources of-this section
must be developed by sound Judgment
and prudent expenditure. Money
thrown away.or wasted will benefit.no
one, and will not advance the mining
Interests of tbe country. In truth,
"wild-catting" and ore "salting" are
detrimental to reputable mining.
The Mining Industry
is Not a   Gamble.
Business    Methods
Must   be   Adopted.
Mining Investments.
For some time past a great deal has
been said about the surplus of money
throughout the country, about the low
rates ot interest which money is bringing, and, particularly in the east,
about foreign Investment of American
capital.
The opportunities for making profitable mining Investments were never
better than at the present time. Mining is now being prosecuted upon a
muoh higher plane than It was ten
years ago, and although it cannot be
said to bave yet reached the position
of an exact science, It is a business,
whioh, if properly carried on, can be
counted upon to bring good returns for
the money Invested ln it.
Are They Too Bulky?
Why, then, is not more of this surplus
wealth put into the ground for Bate
keeping? The answer almost Invar!
ably given Is tbat mining investments
are too risky.
There Is an element of uncertainty
about every Investment, and mining,
of course, shares this uncertainty with
all other kinds of business; but, as we
have frequently pointed out, the
trouble is not nearly so often with the
investment as with the investor, who
tn very many cases has himself to
blame for the foolish and unbusinesslike way in which he has disposed of
his money.
The best of judgment and business
sense, and years of experience, cannot
fathom the secrets In the bosom of
mother earth with any degree of certainty, although science has done a
great deal In recent years to assist tbe
real seeker for knowledge. On account
of this necessary uncertainty, tbe
profits from mining should be larger
than from some other forms of Investment where the results can be
predicted.
Price of Shares,
FERGUSON WILL BE A "BUTTE."
Butte's Payroll is $1,250,000 Per
Month and Still Growing.
George Plunder returned to Rossland
recently from a trip to Butte, Mont.,
where he has been looking after some
mining business. He says Butte is a
great camp and the output Instead of
decreasing Is growing larger. He
reports that the snow has all gone
there and the weather is bo pleasant that
there is no need of wearing overcoats.
The pay roll at present is ��1,250,000
por month. There 1b a shortage of
water for the smelters and concentrators and a supply Is being brought from
the Big Hole river, a distance of 36
miles. This will Insure an ample
quantity of water for all purposes.
The people of Butte feel that the eamp
will last for a century at least. Mr.
Plunder says he saw one train loaded
by the Amalgamated Copper company,
going from Butte to Anaconda which
had 73 oars of about 60 tons each.
This train was drawn by a single Hawk
engine, said to be the largest of its
kind ln the west.
Many men owe the grandeur of their
lives to their tremendous difficulties.
���Spurgeon.   -
A thing Is usually worth about what
it Bells for, and a share of mining
stock that sells for 6 cents is generally
worth 5 cents, where its par value is
quoted at tl or SS. This brings up the
question so often asked. Why are mining companies so often overcapitalized?
and why, for instance, does a company
issue 1,000,000 at par value of $1 per
share, and which are sold at 1 oent per
Share, instead of 1,000 shares to be
sold at their value of 810, thus giving
the Bame working capital aB tbe million shares at 1 cent per share? Two
reasons can probably be assigned for
this. In the first place, 1,000,000 shares
sounds better than 1,000, and 1,000
shares at 10 cents per share are much
more easily sold than 1 share at $100,
In the second place, It Is undoubtedly
true tbat a mine may bo worth $1,000,-
000 after development which before
development is not worth $1 Oil or $1,000;
and If the money raised by selling
these low-priced shares is put into
honest development work the chances
are that the true value of the mine and
tbe par value of the stock will be
realized, assuming, of course, that the
property has been well selected and
carefully managed.
Gambling In "Fylers."
A mining investment Is no more
a gamble than in any other investment, excepting when the investor Is a
gambler, who attempts to get something for nothing. There Is a vast
amount of unmlned gold In the earth,
but there Is even a greater amount of
"fools" gold.
Mining should not be blamed, as lt
usually ia, for tho lack of foresight
and ordinary business sense, wbtch are
no less fatal to mining than to any
other business. It is not fair to charge
up against legitimate mining the losses
that have undoubtedly been suffered
by Investors, but whioh are due very
largely to sheer stupidity and in some
| cues laziness of the Investor, who does
not take the trouble to exorcise any
personal oversight over the Investment. As fair would it be to charge up
against the farming industry all tbe
Iosbos of the stock exchange.
A distinction must be made between
bona fida investments and "flyers," as
they are sometimes called. No one
should attempt the latter unless he can
afford to lose what he puts Into it, and
in case of that loss the less he says
about it the better wisdom does the
loser display.
Two Classes of Hen Causing Loss.
There is two classes of persons
through whose Influence money Is
being constantly lost in mining investments. First, the uninformed, well-
intentioned, honest man, who Induces
his friends to invest money in properties solely upon his judgement upon
a Bubject of which he is perfectly
ignorant. Second, the Informed, dishonest man, who is either a "shark"
or a "sharper." Although it may
seem unfair to place these two classes
of men in suqh close connection, their
Influence on the good name of mining
is the Bame, and if anything the
Influence of the former is* much greater
than the latter. The friends of the
honest man who have lost money In a
mining venture, since they know him
to be perfectly sincere and honest,
conclude tbat all mining must be dishonest, and fcoerolOrO giving everything ot a mining character a wide
berth, and in general use all their influence to keep others from making
similar investments. On the other
hand, tbe man who has been fooled by
a sharper, and linds that he has
bought a gold brick, is not apt to lay it
up against mining, and is usually only
too willing to keep quiet about It.
Men-fooling sharks will exist until
very near the time of the millennium,
and mining must expect to support its
share of tbe general family. Mr. Bur-
num knew mankind very thoroughly
when he said that they liked to be
fooled. Nothing evidences this mnie
strongly than that there are still concerns whioh apparently are doing a
flourishing business In the sale of
diving rods, electrical mineral indicators, etc., etc. No one section seems
to have a monopoly in the use of these
charmed mineral finders, for in Pennsylvania wo, find tt concern advertising
and sellingaparatus costing from $,i tu
soveral hundred, warranted to find tiny
known mineral, the aparutus being
provided with different forms of hooks
which are attached to the same line.
Whenever tho interesting public can
be induced to use ordinary common
sense and business prudenco in making Its mining investments tbe cry that
such investments are a natural and
legitimate way of losing money will
coase.

Mr. Horn expects to reach the ore
chute in about 70 feet more, drifting
and crosscuttlng. There has been ore
coming in on the last 15 feet of work
and indications look encouraging.

Of the 38 Mines That Have Paid
Dividends 21 are in the Slocan.
LARDEAU'S TORN TBIS YEAR
No Longer a Gamble, But a Business Investment.
There waB a time when the people of
the eastern parts .of Canada and the
United States considered a mining man
on a par with a gambler, and if a merchant or .business man invested in
mines be endeavored to conceal the
fact from his contemporaries, for the
reason that if it were generally known
it would Injure his credit. The citizens of the larger eastern cities are
commencing to realize tbat it is a
legitimate industry that yields large
profits, and this opinion is being
reflected In tho leading journals. The
following from the New York Tribune
shows bow the sentiment towards mining is changing:
'The mining industry has paid more,
dividends, compared with other industries, than any other business known.
Compare the profits of mining with
150,000 odd miles of railway, with the
aggregated liabilities ofneariyJIO.OOO,-
000,000, then vou will see which
pays the best. Under tbe wing of mining there exists some of the safest and
most profitable of businesses. Take for
Instance the twelve great smelting
companies���the mineral pawnbroakers.
The smelting companies that do a
strictly custom business sho��v absolutely and unquestionably larger profits
than any other industry in America. I
know of Instances where capital capital
invested in smelting companies has
been turned over five times a year,
and each time the margin of profit has
been over 20 per cent, of the entire
amount handled; they take no risk;
simply buy the raw gold and silver in
ore, nt a reduced price, extract their
cost of treatment and pay tho miner a
residue. It Is a business where the
principal Is absolutely safe."

DOES MINING PAY?    READ ON.
One of the Most Promising Prop

The Black Warrior group is Bltuated
on the head of McDonald creek and Is
reached by a good puck trail at a
distance of about nine miles from Ferguson to Black Warrior cabin. There
are tour claims in this group, with a
fine showing of ore on three of them.
Tbere is also abundance of timber on
the fourth for mining purposes. The
ledge lies in a wide belt of slate about
sevenity-five feet from one of the strata
of lime which run through the country.
A considerable portion of the ledge
has been stripped and a chute of ore
has beon uncovered of from sixty to
seveuty feet ln length and two and a
half to three feet Inwldth, lying along
the contact. The ore consists of galena
and runs 150 ozs. in silver, $8 in gold
and 50 per cent. lead. Thos. Horn, the

Enormous    Dividends     Paid    By
Mines Last Year.
Tho Engineering and Mining Journal
which makes a specialty of compiling
the dividends of mining corporations
In tho United States, stated in its Inst
issue Unit tho total dividends paid in
1900 by 210 companies allied with the
mineral Industry of the United States
Is $30,041,000.
Theso enormous dividend disbursements, plaeo tho mining industry among
tlio' most profitable of tho nation's
industries.
The copper mines paid $3,1,433,000, or
more than one-fourth of the total dividend disbursements forthe yoar, which
puts our copper production first in
importance. .
This list of dividend payers, however, does not include many metallurgical industries that disbursed large
dividends during tho year, and which
should he added to tho disbursements
of the mining companies proper.
The Journal predicts that dividends
will be materially increased during the
current year.
Total $6,392,000
Tho mines marked with an asterisk
are those outside of the Slocan. The
placer mines are not of courso InoLtdoi*
in tho list.
It is expected that in a short time
there will be added to this list many
others among which will pro'^'ly be
the Nettie L., (Lardeau), Arlington,
American boy nnd Enterprise.
Such u showing as this speaks much
for tho profits in silver nnd lead mining nnd causes some wonder at the
seeming preference ot investors for
gold properties.

"Mining" operations in the eastern
money centres have been very brisk
this winter and it is to be hoped that
the money will be expended ln actual
development work this spring. The
great difficulty Is that there is too
much "mining" done above ground,
^t will be In order for all the mining
companies In this district who are still
selling stock on tbe grounds that they
are "just waiting for a railway to commence shipping ore," to get in and do
something. By the time many of these
Bame properties are ready for a rail-
waythe railway will be here for years.
And with others this is just the right
time to begin work, as there is an
absolute certainty of cheaper transportation facilities by this time next year.

about 250 cities, towns and incorporated

all these works have been constructed
in the past 20 years; and tho. majority
have been constructed in the past 10
years. Of these works the munlci
palities own and operate 110, while
eight are owned by private companies.
The electric light plants are more
recent, and as a result the proportions
as regards public ownership are

communication    whioh    the   present
government   has inaugurated  iu the
postal  system.     Government ownership of the telegraph service is no new
idea.    It Is a service which can only
flourish under a comparative monopoly
and  the tendency of tbe  times    is
toward the administration of all monopolistic services  by the state.   In
Great Britain  the telegraph linos are
owned and operated  by the state in
connection with the postal service, and
with highly satisfactory results both
from tbe standpoint of efficiency and
eoonoray.    There Is noTOason to suppose that equally satisfactory results
could not be secured in Canada.     The
dominion has the credit necessary to
put suoh a deal through, and Its poople Btand ready to applaud and support
the statosman who is sufficiently progressive to carry such a programme
through to completion.
What the nation will be thirty years
hence, depends chiefly on what tho
children of the present decade are.

The trusts savo tho wnsteof competition by destroying competition. They

Down with competition say tho railway magnates of tho United States,

is to bo the result. Co-operation is the
coming Issue. Tho next stage in

The Man Who Can See the Length

to Invest His Money in the
Lardeau,   the   doming
damp     of    B.    0.
That the Lardeau district has
unbounded mineral resources no
well informed person will deny.
The Lardeau district is entering
upon a new era, brought about by
wonderful developments, finds and
strikes already made; along with
the fact that the construction of a
railway by the C. P. R. is absolutely certain for early next season, in
fact the company are now building
the wharf at the head of Kootenay
lake, and the contract for 80,000
ties has been let.
The large ore shipments being
made this winter in spite the fact
that transportation and treatment
costs $35 to $50 per ton, indicates
the high grade nature of our   ores.
With cheap transportation next
season, when Lardeau's low and
medium grade ores can be treated
profitably the possibilities are
astounding.
The attention of outside investors
has already been arrested and hundreds nre now making arrangements to, operate in this district-
in fact some of them are here now,
securing bonds, looking for and
finding ground-floor propositions.
No district in Canada to-day
offers better ' inducements for the
investor than this one. The mining
industry is no monopoly. The poor
man has even chances, at least more
so than in other lines. When he
finds a "Triune" he doesn't need to
sell. What other occupation in
life can a man follow where his
chances with a wealthy competitor
are less diminished than in prospecting and mining?
"There is a tide in the affairs of
men,which, taken at the flood leads
on to fortune." It may not be your
lot to make a fortune, but if ever
there was an opportunity in a min
ing camp, the Lardeau offers it
to-day. Don't wait until the rail
way comes; for then the prospector
is not in the same need of money to
hang on.
If you have money to invest now
is the time to investigate. - Come
straight to Ferguson j you will find
men here who have properties to
sell j in fact Ferguson is the home,
the meeting place for prospectors
and investors. The owners, as a
rule, will be found most reasonable
and always ready to give you infor
niation, cheerfully escort you to
their properties, and otherwise
interest you in their interests. We
have the mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you
come in and help us and thus help
yourself ?

., "The time Is undoubtedly ripe for
judicious investment. Men who have
invested carefully In the.Lardeau have
made money, and there never was a
better time than now."���A. E. Welch,
London, Ont.
During the year 1900 the Eugene
mine at Moyle shipped over 17,000 tons
of ore, of a total value of over $1,000,-
000. The pay roll in tbe town during
the year averaged nearly $30,000 per
month, or $360,000 for the 12 months.
tt Is Btated on good authority that
the output of the ore from the Le Roi
mine, Rossland, Is to be increased.
The intention is to send to the smelter
during this month about 35,000 tons
and thereafter to maintain a minimum
monthly shipment of about 30,000 tons.
The B, C. mine, one of the largest
properties in tho Boundary district,
has been sold to an American syndi-
cate for one million dollars. During
- the past six months this mine has
shipped $50,000 worth of ore to the
Trail smelter. The mine waB bought
for $400 only a few years ago.
The net returns from ore shipments
at the American Boy mine, Sandon
district, not including the cost of mining or packing, to date have been
$19,731.32. The total money handled
by the tranagement in 17 months has
been $26,153. The manager estimates
that there ir, $100,000 worth of ore
blocked out.
At Cripple Creek, Colorado, the
miner may go up to his work from the
town on an electric car, go down in the
mine by an electric hoist, operated by
electric signals, the shaft being kept
3ry by an electric pump, do his work
hy an electric light, talk to the town
and thence to tho world by an electric
telephone, run a drill electrically operated, and fire his Bhots by an electric
blast.
The Cranbrook Herald says that
Indian Agent Galbralth is authorized

The introductory number of The
Okotoks Times, published by M. Hodg-
kin, is to hand. Okotoks is a growing
town on Sheep creek, between Calgary
and Macleod. M. Hodgkin, popularly
known as the "Dook," held cases on
the Calgar,' Herald when the writer
was "printer's devil." On leaving that
institution to work on the Tribune,
someone got off the following on the
"Dook":
After years of toil   the peg leg gent
bas quit.
Out towards the ancient Tribune he
has Ut,
Where neath Bernard's kindly eye
He will wallow in the "pi,"
And the "quacks" to set won't bother
him a bit.
No "print" can laugh at the peg leg
gent at all,
For he's never yet been driven to the
wall.
And he's always had a "rule,"
Held a job and owned a stool,
Which is'ntbad for 'Booklets'after all.
The Eagle wishes you all kind, of
success Mark,
THE KIGHT-HOUR DAY IN SPAIN.
A'recente dspatch from Madrid says:
The strike on the railway to the Por-
tuguse frontier, is causing a great dislocation of traffic. Only a few trains
are running, and they are worked by
military engineers. The engines and
cars are lying deserted on the traoks.
A goneral strike of all the trades at
Gijon, growing out of the eight hour
question, has assumed large propor-
ortious. Over 150,000 men are out.
The strikers thus far have been quiet.
But Martial Law has been proclaimed
throughout the provinces, and the government has drafted there a sufficient
force ot troops to cope with any emergency.
