A. H. Gracey Interviewed by the
Nelson Tribune.
LOTS OF WORK ANTICIPATED
Kelson People Who Are Interested
Think They  Have Secured a
Big; and Profitable Proposition���Fish Oreek Will
Soon Have Shippers.
A. H. Gracey, who is in charge of
tho operations on the Imperial, Eva
and Challa group, situated near Camborne In the Lardeau district and controlled by the Imperial Development
Syndicate of Nelson, has returned to
the city after spending two weeks at
"the property. He reports that things
are showing up in remarkable good
shape, and he . expects to be able to
present a good report of the general
meeting of the company, which will be
held at the board of trade rooms on
Tuesday, February 12.
This Is theWgest,,property in that
district, as it contains 1G claims. Thc
work required to develop theso to
obtain tho best results will be heavy
and therefore it is probably one of the
largest mining undertakings in thc
province. At present 16 men are
engaged and the work consists in the
driving of crosscut tunnels. Tho ore
bodies are large and consists of a pur
allel system of veins running through
schist. It can be said without doubt
that the work being done embraces the
most perfect scheme of development
yet undertaken in tbiitminiugdivisioti
Five tunnels .are being run for tht
development of one vein. Four of
these are ut different levels, while the
other i9 on a different? part of the pro
perty, The vein was first uncovered
by open cuts to a length of 700 or 80H
feet. Two tunnels have already tupped the lead at the 60 and 70-foot levels
respectively. The tunnels are in ore.
The ores taken from tbe vein are free
inilling, giving good gold values, The
vein also carries somo sulphnrets
which will undoubtedly have to be
troated by aeyanido process, ill uddi
tion to tlie treatment by a stamp mill
At the Inner end of the tunnels the
vein has been found to bo about Si! feot
in width, which apparently contains a
rich pay stroult to tho width nf about
25 foet. A wln.ie is now being sunk on
tho vein. If the same good results
contiuiui with further development,
it will guarantee the erection of a 100-
stamp mill.
There are several other veins on the
property, which aro ol a lower grade
and thoy run parallel to tho one that
is being developed. The location Is
an excellent one, as It has great advantages as to water power and other
facilities for the carrying on of development successfully. A water right
which can be used to obtain the neeosS'
ury power bus been soeured.
From other Information obtained of
the Pool Creek mid Fish If iver district
it can be said that, it is tho most
prominent mining centre of North
Kootonay. In the district Immediately
surrounding Camborne about 40 mon
are engaged.
Ono of tho other properties whieh Is
showing up well Is tho Eclipse, which
i9 now being operated by H. Jackson
of Rossland. It Is controlled by
American capital. About ten men are
engaged. The ore, which is of a
silver-lead nature, gives assay values
of about 980 per ton. The iron values
are also quite prominent.
Another property la the Criterion,
which Is situated above the Eva group.
It is a free gold proposition. The
other properties along the creek are
the Alma, Black Bear, Wide West and
a few otherB all of which were spoken
of in a previous issue.
The Eagle Is in receipt of a handsome souvenir from the Calgary
Herald, (Alberta), being "Picturesque
Calgary." To a Calgarian of the good
old days it is a treat, and the marvel
ous progress the "sandstono city of
the nesfis making is well brought out
in Mr. Young's production. In fact it
is beyond the ordinary in every par
tiottlar.

BUILDINGS GOING UP
Extensive Program
for  the    Nettie  L.
A General Review of
Camp   Happenings
Manager W. B. Pool of tho Nettie
L. mine is suffering from a
severe attack of lagrippo in Rovel-
Btoke, but hopos to be in Ferguson during the coming week. There is nearly
200 tons of Nettio L. oro at tho Landing how, but until navigation re-opens
thore will be no moro shipments to the
smelter. Tho extromoly frosty
weather of tho past week bas frozen the
Arm up good and solid, so that uo
more ore will leave the Landing for
probably six weeks. The Eaole
visited the mino on Monday last Thero
is easily thrC'.' feet of shipping ore in
the faeo of thc threo drifts from the
southeast winze. The difficulty of having to winless ovorything up the winze
is delaying tho oro output, it requiring
two mon a shift to lmndlo this heavy
work. As soon as tlie now fan is
installed and some air pipe reaches
here work will bo ro-comnioncod in thc
700-loot base tunnel to mako connections with tho bottom of tho winze
from tho upper workings. Thirty men
are now engaged and as soon as the
abovo is commenced six moro men will
be put on. The rawhide trail between
here and the mine is in perfect condition and the roads were never better.
soon Itu Lots of Lumber,
II. Davis, lessee of Ferguson's saw
mill plant arrived in town this
evening to commence sawing lumbar,
much to tho satisfaction of local
builders. The weather Is perfect for
getting out logs and no trouble is
anticipated in cutting enough, to supply
tne demand. Mr. Davis is a lirst elns-
ralll man and has a system which fills
tho hill���tho lumber bill. This will
moan the employment of another dozen
men In the pay roll centre.
Tho Dominion Hotel.
The Dominion hotel is now assuming tho appearance of a handsome new
building. The three storeys aro up,
tho roof on aud Messrs. Cummings,
Scott and Meeley are busily engaged
putting on tho rustic. The. furnishings for the Dominion aro now enrnute
and a few weeks more will see It ready
for business.

The Bag-In llnilillug.
After a lay-off ol nearly a week waiting for lumber. Messrs, Steve Woods;
Randolf Higginson and (ins Olson havo
resumed work on the "Eagle" building.
The doors, windows, etc., are on the
ground, and tho Horns are now being
laid. The frunlshings for the hall havo
arrived and if nothing mis-carries it.

Ranking Quarters.
Geo. S. McCarter of Revelstoke, has
sent word in that on account of pressing business he wi 11 not arrive here
until next week to arrange for his
clients' building, 30x60, two' storey,
which will bo erected as soon as possible.
Two More Residences.
As soon as the local saw mill can
supply the lumber Messrs. S. Shannon,
B. A., will commence his residence on
the corner of Vickers avenue and Rail-
nay street. Vincent Lade has also an
order ready for a dwelling en "Knob
hill." It will require 20,000 foet to
UU these two orders.
A Sale-A Building.
S. F. W. Gainer came in from Rovelstoke last week to transfer a portion of
nil interest in the Triuno fraction to
John Sutherland of this placo. Mr.
Gainer left on Tuesday to bring bis
family to Ferguson, and wiU.,turn the
proceeds of his sale into a building in
tho pay roll contre. Ho has aecurred
a lot west of the Dominion hotol for
that purpose. The size of the building
Is under consideration, but 26xS0 is
spoken of.
NEW NEST NEEDED.
Tho Eagle has no apologies to make
for being a day behind time this issue.
The cold fact of the matter is our old
nest is frozen up. It is constituted of a
largo number of cracks with a few
boards to break the monotony, causing
somo difficulty in keeping in the olllco
dog, let alone tho heat generated by a
big box stove. Tho type cases are
closely located on one side of the aforesaid generator and tho editor's feet on
the other, with the "devil" working
double shift. Our thiuking apparatus

NOTHING HUT FEIMil'SON GOES,
Tho EAGLE has always contended
that tho "Lardeau" would become n
household word ; but now wo Unci the
Vancouver Province with "Ferguson"
on the brain, as may he observed from
the following: "Tlie Nelson Miner
takes thc Province to task for having
omitted to include fl. T. Anderson, of
Lemon creek, in a recent reference to
tho rising poets of tbo west. Nn coast
paper appreciates more than dons the
Province tie poetic quality of "the
Kipling of the Kootenays," and If tlio
types are perverse enough to reohristen
the hard FERGUSON it in no ��uy diminishes or obliterates that appreciation."

THE   BALLOT THEIR   WEAPON
New Zealandors Avoid The Effect
By Removing the Cause.
Compulsory arbitration has been
tried in New Zealand for a period of
five years, and so far as may be judged
tho experiment has been attended with
marked success. During tho whole of
that term thero has beon neither lockout or strike. Disputes thero have
been in abundance but tho Court of
Arbitration has invariably settled these
in a common sense way, sometimes in
favor of the employers, souietimos in
favor of the employed, but always with
a fairness that has been justly appreciated by thoso concerned, A3 some of
tho results it observed that
Strikes and lock-outs have been
stopped.
Wages and contracts have been
fixed enabling manufacturers to make
tbeir contracts ahead without fear of
disturbance.
Workingmen knowing their income
is assured, and having no fear of being
arhritrury locked out, are buying land
and building homes.
No factory bus boon closed by the
act.
Tho country is more prosperous than
ever.
The weak and the strong aro equalized both among capitalists and workingmen.
To right aud not might the award is
given.
Labor and capital are being
organized into unions and associations
instead of mobs and monopolists.
Such results as theso appear to warrant similiar experiment being made
in other countries. It has certainly
proved a bettor way of settling disputes than costly strikes and lock-outs,
attended with untold misery and
wretchedness.

Definite Action Taken by the O.P.R
on Lardeau's Railway.
NELSON GETS THE BEST OF IT
Soon  Lardeauites Can Reach the
Wholesale Centre in One Day.
-It Will  Help  to  Create
More   Business   in   the
Kootenays as Well.
H. E. Beasley, chief elork in President ShaughnesBy's office at Montreal,
is in Nelson.   To a reporter he said:
"We have started work on the Lardo
wharf and the steel for tho road is nov
on   the way.       This    will probably
rotnove any lingering doubts as to th-
company's intentions in that direction.''
While in Revelstoko last week the
writer was informed by a prominent C.
P.R. official that Jas. McDonald,a well
known railway contractor had secured
tho contract of constructing thc
what f and slip at tho head of Kootenay
lake, and also for gotting out 80,000
ties, or in othor words work on Lardeau's railway has alroady commenced.
"Do you think the railway will stop
at the foot of Trout lako?" asked the
Eagle.
"Why, what would we do that for''
Does it look reasonable to suppose
that we aro going in after Lardeau's
ore, and then stop miles and milo
away from the mines which have
already demonstrated to us that there
was need for a railway at all in the
Lardeau. Most certainly not. We
will tap thc mines as soon as possible,
and give you people who have been
"screaming" for a railway a chance to
prove your assertions as to the
resources of your country. The Lardeau is ono of tho coming camps of the
province, ami having got our officials to
recognize this you can rest, assured
vour district will not. ba overlooked.
We have a great deal ot construction on
hand in British Columbia for this year,
hut, the Lardoau branch is one of the
first projects on tho list."
"Then if you intend to tap the ore
produoing mines your railway will
r��noh Ferguson very soon?" ventured
the EAGLE man.
"We certainly will,'' replied the
p. r. o.
In addition to the abovo tho Nelson
Miner says:
James McDonald haa returned from
Trail after arranging with tlie construction department of thc ('. P. II.
for tho construction nf the wharf at
Lardo. The contract for ties to ho
used on the road, has it is understood,
boon let. to Gus Carlson of Kaslo. The
contract involves tho cutting of 80,000
ties. Mr. McDonald will complete his
arrangements for a supply of piles ut
once and mako preparations for moving ills pile driver tn tho scene of
Operations. The work will lake a
month or two and it is to ho completed
before high water sets in. With the
wharf in shape tho construction
department can unload ils plant and
supplies for tlie continuation of the
Lardo work without delay and nothing
will Interfere to retard tho completion
of thc first twelve or fourteen miles of
road, the grade foi' which lias been
completed.
A BIG  NEW  JOTNT STOCK CO.
Will Take Up The Towser Bond
and Continue Work.
G. P. Ritter of Chicago, who was in
the camp for a week straightening
out affairs in connection with tho
Towser mine, returned home last wee!:,
where he is organizing a strong joint
stockuotnpany to take up the $40,(1(111
bond on the Towser and continue work,
probably in throe weeks' time. The
syndicate heretofore working this property have expended about $20',000 lu

The next Dominion census will
be taken on Sunday, March 31st,
next. This is also the day fixed
tor taking the census in Great
Britain and Ireland. All persons
who are living at midnight on Sua
day will be counted.
The new century starts off with
exceedingly bright prospects for the
camp, says the Slocan Drill. More
enquiries for desirable properties
are being made now than for
months past and it is certain much
new capital will seek investment
here in the spring. Those properties working are looking particularly bright and the shipments of ore
promise to be large. There is no
cause for doleful locks or words,
for, while January and February
may be somewhat quiet in busines
circles, there is every surety of a
refreshing spring. Besides, there
is a heavier payroll and more
solidity in the camp this winter
than ever in the past.
The United States is a country
numbering 76,000,000 people. The
United Kingdom of Great Britain
and Ireland numbers about, 38,000,-
000, just half as many. France
numbers just half as many also
The German empire, not counting
its African colonies, nembers about
47,000,000 people, less than two
thirds of our population. Austria-
Hungary has nearly 42,000,000
inhabitants, only 4,000,000 more
than half our own country. Russia
proper, excluding the non-Russian
people of Asia under her flag, has a
population of about 86,000,000���
10,000,000 more than the United
States, But our population is
growing at the rale of 13,000,000
every ten years, so that the American babies of to-day when they

"Competition is impossible where
combination is possible." This will
throw out of employment some
thousands of well dressed men atid
women of good address, and they
will have time to think about what
the industrial conditions are leading
to. Only the narrow minded longer
believe in individual effort, with its
waste and personal backbitings.
Men who see things as they are,
who have mind enough to gather
any considerable wealth, know that
combination beats competition
every time and they are willing to
give their "individuality" for the
cash dividends held out by corporate management. The little fellows
must go. It would be better to
have the public do the insurance at
cost and the money left in the
pockets of the people that will go
to the combination, but the people
do not see it that way and will be
skinned.

> That the   Lardeau  district has
unbounded   mineral  resources  no
well informed person will deny.
The Lardeau district is entering
upon a new era, btrodght 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
ms.de this winter in spite the fact
'that transpprtation 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 caiv 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 mining camp; the Lardedu offers it
to-day. ".Don't wait until the railway 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 ; you will find
men here who have properties to
'sell; in fact Ferguson is the home,
tlie meeting place for prospectors
and investors. The owners, as a
rule, will be found most reasonable
and altyays ready to give you information, 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 ?
