advantages fo r this sort of deopp mining. By pro vision therefor, the water

for power development. Practically,
this costs tho minimum in tho way of
investment, and, being possiblo of uso
direot, cun provide thc maximum of
effective work from tho theoretical
efficiency. It is safe to say that 70 per
cent, of tho theoretical water power
can lie had in work. Under average
conditions, mor*e water will reach 100-
foot depth of workings above tho tunnel
levels than below. The.power, then,
that can be devel.oped from the inflow-

A ii Independent Huhtlier Shop.
Some weeks ago the Eagle informed
the Pat Burns meat trust that Ferguson rniiist have a butcher shop, a
request, which was politely Ignored.
This week, however, tho EAGLE can
announce the establishment of an Independent shop in tbis rising centre.
And under such auspices as to render
it quite capable of doing business when

The Silver-Load Slump Forma the
Chief Topic For Discussion.
Thought Tbat Mino Owners Will
Oo Operate to Meet and Better
Prevailing Conditions.
The past week in this camp hns been
a quiet, one. No particular evidence of
the Christmas season is observably
tho considerable social amusement has
been provided for both in Fergusou
and Trout Luke. The rawhiders nro
busy. Nettie L. ore is now coming
from thy mino ovor the new road on
sleighs, a biff improvement over thc
old method. The ore piles on Victoria
avenue nre growing larger daily. Tiie
Cup ore is hauled from S-mile to Baty's
awaiting more snow, an unusual delay
at tbis advanced time of the year. The
IIlack Warrior crew will be down on
Monday for a week. They will Increase
their forces and >ro up for two months
after New Years. The men from tbe
Old Gold eamp will also be down for
the holiday week. Tho Cup will close
for a couple of days, but the Nettie L.
will only lose one shift.
Of course the chief discussion in the
camp for the puat week bas boon the
silver-lead fluctuations and general
tumble down the lirie. But of tbis the
EAGLE can say very little. Tbe trusts
hovj it in their power, seemingly, to
twist and mould us into a.i.v old shape,
so that in tho .absence of a live lot of
aiining men or a government tbat will
go into business itself, wc must await
our fate in silence. There Is one thing
certain, however, tho Lardeau mines
can do business at a profit when many
other camps must close up shop. And
Lardeaultes are not going to throw up
the sponge by a long shot.

difficulty of their production, practically annihilates their industrial value
at present. But in timo tbey may be

Speaking ol the Lardeau district, and
tbo new map, the London News says:
The map, which is compiled by S.
Shannon and A. P. Cummins of Ferguson, B. C, is very complete and shows
the location of the properties and their
position as regards transportation very
clearly. To those who bave not seen
a map of the district it is a revelation,
as many people think that the Itossland
district is British Columbia, as fur its
mining is concerned. As a matter of
fact Lardeaultes claim that thoir district can give Uossland cards and
spades and then whip it badly iu ore
Tho following interesting notes on
this mineral Is given by J. S Randall,
in the Georgetown, Colorado, Courier :
Of the many mineral species that go to
mako up this earth of ours, tho most
singular and complex is the mineral
unmlnito- or as it is moro commonly
called, pitchblende. It occurs in a
number of mines in Gilpin county, and
.it one time quite a lurire amount of It
was discovered in tbe Jo Reynolds
mine in this county. The mineral is
black, heavy and sometimes bas a sub-
metallic or pitch-iiko lustre, lt is
composed principally of tho :*are
elements uranium, thorium, coriu.L,
lanthanum and yttrium, along with
lead, iron, calcium, nitrogen, and some
other substances as yet little understood which give forth perpetual light.
It is a remarkable fact that it is tho
only known mineral containing
nitrogen, but still more remarkable is
tho fact that it contains three substances called polinlurOj radium and
actinum, which are now astonishing
the scientific world. These substances
partake,, of the properties of the
cathodic and X-rays, and spontaneously
tronorate electricity. In tbe laboratory
of physics thoy upset all the apparatus.
They aro spontaneously luminous without undergoing any transformation.

Government Will Aid CoiiBtmrptlvea.
The KaQLB is in receipt of a circular
from the secretary of the provincial
board of health, Charles .J. Fagahj
giving many valuable suggestions re
tuberculosis, and suggestions to those
suffering from tho terrible destroyer of
life. T.u fact, tiie EAGLE is pleased to
nolo, Mr. Fagan says: "The Attorney*
General directs me to announce that
the Government Bacteriological
Laboratory is at the disposal of all
���sufferers. Therefore, persons sus-
pected to besuiTerinjj from tuberculosis
can huvo their sputum examined at. the

A Very Natural Assumption,
According to director t-Ycoheville's
report, ex-manager McDonald's reports
on the amount of ore in sight in the
Lo Roi mine at Rossland should be
discounted 06 2-3 per cent, and the
amount the mine earned forthe last
fiscal year should he reduced on just
the samo basis. "r Mr. McDonald was
so far astray in regard to tho ore in
sight and the mine's earnings, It is not
unfair to assume he was equally as far
astray iu his reports regarding the
demands of lhe striking miners at
Uossland and striking smeltor workers
at Northport.���Tribune
And Don't Overlook lhe Lurdeau.
The Sloeati has no less than fifty
shipping mines, a record not equalled
by any other mining district
of tho same area in America.
None of the fifty produce gold ore : all
aro silver-lead mines. Silver and lead
are both falling in price, yet tho Slocan is the one quartz mining district in
British C'llumbia that manages to
enrich a few prospectors and mine
owners every year, besides paying mine
workers standard wajjes without strikes
or lockouts,���Tribune.

Nearly $45,000 Has Already Been
Expended by the Company
in Development Work.
The IflAGLE is in a position this week
to yivo to its readers, exclusively, tho
exact total output of ore rhippei! from
tiie Nettio L. mine, not. of course.
Including what lies on tbe dump and
now sacked at tbe ore bouses. Accord-
ing to figures furnished by Secretary
Holdich. with the authority of Manager
Pool, the company has marketed So"
tons, the total gross value, of which was
$03,380, or a few cnts better than $72a
ton. A better knowledge of their ore,
more careful sorting, and other factors,
hereafter, will undoubtedly raise the
average to ov r $100 a ton. Tbo company have expended some frJS.OOO of
this amount in development, and the
balance will also be used before tbe
next smelter returns are available.
The mining expenses for the past six
months have amounted to over 82,000 a
month, a nice little pay roll in itself,
but during this winter it will be much
larger as tho working force is increased.
There is one thing certain. Every
dollar of money the Nettiu L. peoplo
bave taken out in ore has been or will
he put bae'e in development*. Tbo ere

mean the declaration of the lontr looked

Instead of giviiig the people the
benefit of the low price ol lead by
jefining; our own product, and reducing the price of the refined
irticle to a reasonable price, men
nre busy devising some means of
making it possible to mine lead at a
profit wilh a lower price than ever
paid before. The fact that there is
already an over-production of lead
doesn't seem to strike the average
1'iinintf man. Over-production is a
something which cannot he handled
by laws or legislation. We ni list
--imply wait uniil the lead trust disposes of the $4,000,000 worth of
iead it has on hand. Then they
will buy more lead. This will be
dubbed "prosperity," but as a matter of fact another "panic"���overproduction���must soon come again.
iVith the modern means of mining,
utilizing electric drills, ele, and the
finding of new mineral camps,
naturally we produce more lead than
we can use. But horrors ! What
if the government were lo build a
refinery, and reduce the price ol lhe
refined article. Why we all might
be able to pain: onr buildings, and
use lead pipe instead of 1x4 boards,
not to mention lhe ere..lion ol a
home market, and the escape from
'.antl taxation. Anil if there was
any profit going the people would
receive a benefit Irom two sources.
Ol course this would have a smack
of socialism about it, and lhat would
lever do. Production and distribution shouldn't be regulated hy the
whole people. That would remove
the brick wall we are up against.

Last week the Trout Lake Topic
administered a much deserved re-
huke to the "pessimistic blatherskites" of this province, a rebuke
ivhh which the Eagle can heartily
concur. As the Topic says the history of but "one camp is evidence
enuf that mining in this province is
not drifting hellward, as that sheet
afflicted with chronic dry gripes���
the Rossland Miner-would have
the world believe." There may be
much room for improvement in the
situation, hut the belly-aching mine
owners must confine more ot their
attention to mining than to politics
if the improvement is to he effected.
The money they spend in trotting
off lo victoria, bucking labor
unions, and raising disturbance
generally could be spent much more
profitably were they to co-operate
and adopt the same business
method's as the mining men across
the line have done. They seem to
have become so helpless and incapable, thru dabbling in politics and
expecting relief by legislation, that
really they are more to be pitied
than taken seriously. The solution
of the troubles of the mine owners
lies in tlieir own hands, and it it-
only regrettable that lhe dependent
public have to suffer for their lack
of enterprise and business ability.
There are two great powers nl
work in the development ol socialism. Thegreatcaplains of industry
at the top and lhe "common" people
at the bottom. Tbe former are
proving the practicability of what
the latter are striving for. With
social sm being perfected by lhe
captains of industry at the top and
towns and provinces and Dominions
adopting their methods at the bottom the gulf between them mu-t
������0011 close. And the "common"
people, being ill lhe majority, will
scarcely allow themselves 10 he
absorbed by the few at the lop.
Willi ihe captains of industry
nationalizing socialism and the
people localizing it, ihe day is nol
far distant when private socialism
must be absorbed by public socialism. The know-it-all little capitalists may look wise and sneer at this
contention, but tlie next ten years
will hear out the Eagle's contention.
A Kootenay district meeting of
the Western Federation of Miners
will be convened at an early date
to adopt a platform for lhe Socialist-
Labor party, and arrange for placing candidates in every riding in the
interior. The Lardeau union will
likely be represented. The next
likely member lor this riding is a
resident here, and a miner. When
lhe time comes his name will be
announced���from a representative
socialist-labor convention. Has-
been politicians need not apply.
There seems to be' ttooin for reform in the manner of- administering justice in this province. Cases
are too expensive and in many instances too long-winded. If the
elective system was in force it might
improve matters. When a man
has secured a job for life he is liable
to forget that there are other equally
as important people on this earth.���

Is the Coining Solid Town of thc
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
B E C A  U
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a fiat 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 shipping mines are
located on Nettie I., hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fori; and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point,
Because this is the   point  where
mining men coming into the dis-   ffi
trict make their headt matters; as   1ft
they can walk or ride and return fc****;
from most of the piropcnics in fs|!
one day or less, as
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during the past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but the new finds and man)' test
ore shipments arc exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in thc
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because every pound of o re from
tiiese mines coming down the
hill lands lirst in Ferguson.
From here it will he teamed to

But why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, thc natural geographical location, the supply trade, the banking institutions, unlimited water power for all
purposes; and the right kind of people to snake a town. The ore shipments, increasing
business, and money and enterprise will do the rest.    Come here and sec for yourself.
