Oswald Supports Presi
dent    Shaughnessy's
Contention That C. P
R. Had the Grants.
Evidence was given during the week
by high Eastern officials of the C. P. 11.
before the committee investigating the
Columbian & Western land grant manipulation.* These officials, Including
President Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,
A. R. Creelman, chief C. P. R. solicitor, and H. Campbell Oswald, secretary of the Columbia & Western railway, swore to a man tbat the said
grants were actually delivered and
actually layover night in the Canadian
Pacific Railway Co's vaults, and the
following morning the chief commissioner of lands and works, Hon. Mr.
Wells, called and requested that two
of them be given him back temporarily. Tbe request was granted and Mr.
Wells failed to return them. Under
cross-examination the witnesses seemed to have difficulty in explaining why
receipts were not given for them in the
lirst place, and again when the two
were returned no receipt was given. It
seems very peculiar that C. P. R. officials would be so negligent in giving
and taking receipts, but there certainly
is something very peculiar about the
whole transaction, and where the improper conduct lays has vet to be es*
Mr. Geo. McL. Brown, the company's former executive agent, was recalled in the hope, we presume, that
his memory might serve him better
than at the time of the former examination. He also was subjected to a
vigorous cross-examination, but little
new matter was brought to light, however. Hon. W. C. Wells was also recalled and gave some rebuttal testimony. This consisted largely In detailed denial of certain portions of the
evidence given by officials of the railway company. He declared that Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy, when parting
with bim, Wells, had said he was glad
the twenty-three grants were delivered
but sorry .the other two were not delivered, This matter of the grants, he
declared, had been fully discussed with
President Shaughnessy at the first interview on thelnight of the 20th, and
he delivered the memo, next morning.
He could not recall any statement re
gat-ding the returning of the grants in
thirty days. When parting, he thought
he said to Sir Thomas that he would
hear .(rom him in a month. When he
saw glv Thomas in June, the C. P. It.
president had expressed disappoint*
ment at not receiving the grants, but
said he attributed no blame to Mr
Wells, but to the government. Witness never told Col. Prior that Bill No.
87 confirmed the Act, but no doubt said
tbat the bill should conform to the
Subsidy Act, He afterwards went to
Mr. Eberts about it, becauso he regarded Bill No. 87 as Mr. Eberts' bill.

A resident of Ferguson took a run
down last week to Rapid creek for the
purpose of examining the new gold
discovery reported from thero last fall.
When interviewed by an Eaole representative the party had just returned
and was enthusiastic regarding the
future of that district and was showing
Bamples of oro with the gold plainly
visible.   He said in part:
"There are a number of very promising claims but the only ono on which

A lump of ledge matter weighing
pounds was taken out and it was found
to contain 50 per cent pure gold. Tbo
whole substance of the matrix of the
vein, from wall to wall, is the same,
but of course it is not known yet how
far it extends. It is supposed to be but
a pocket, but it shows there are large
quantities of gold in the Fish river
camp and the summer will bring great
developments. A great wave of excitement has gone out over the country
in consequence of this latest and richest find.

Drowned In tlie ftapldi.
A dispatch from Dawson says: "Bud
Harklns and Miss Leila Wallace met
death in a whirlpool on Sunday while
attempting to shoot Whltehore rapids
in a canoe. Harklns, Miss Wallace
and Eugene Larose were making a
pleasure trip in the conoe, and anticipated no danger In going through the
rapids. When well on their course the
canoe shipped a little water, the girl
made a startled movement, and the
craft quickl/ overturned.
Larose clung to the canoe and was
soon rescued by a party from the shore
but Harklns and Miss Wallace were
swept away in tho whirlpool and
drowned. The girl's body has been recovered, but no trace has yet been

"Tho gold values are found in leads
cutting the formation at right angles,
anda belt of country about 2,000 feet
wide seems to be cut at regular intervals by these cross leads, which vary
in width from a few inches to several
feet, and nearly all show free gold on
the surface.

belts of diorite and schist and these

formations and tho most peculiar feature of them is that they are wider

there was at least $150,000 worth of ore
In Bight on this group of claims.
���'Another group' of claims visited
was tho Sunrise group, owned by J.
Nesbit. On this group there is nothing done but surface work, but on several of tho leads where thoy have been
stripped they show free gold, and as
they are continuations of the leads
found on the Rogors claims they prove
that their leads continue for at least
3,000 feet and bent* good values.
'I think that the half has not been
discovered about this section of the
country, and It is really one of the
most accessible parts of the Lardeau,

Rov. S. J. Green arrived from Vancouver on Friday evening, whore ho
was attending conference. Earlier In
the day tho roof and upper part of tho
parsonage at Trout Lake wore badly
burnod causing considerable damage.
Tbere was no insurance, so the loss
will be found hard tb boar by the congregation at the Lake city.
The Trout Lake-Ferguson circuit has
a change of ministers this year. Rev.
Mr. Green, who has been here for the
last three years, has been transferred
to the Kaslo circuit, and Rev. Mr.
Sharp comes to Trout Lake and Ferguson.
Ferguson people will feel sorry to
lose Mr. and Mrs. Green, but they recognize that this system of itinerancy
is a principle of the Methodist body
and must be met.
Sunday evening next Mr, Green
will preach his farewell sermon In Ferguson and will leave next week for
Accident at tlie Cup.
An accident occurred at tho Silver
Cup mine Wednesday night, a littlo
aftor 7 o'clock, by which Goorgo Parker sustainod a fracture of tho jaw bone.
Ho is not seriously hurt, but will have
to spond some timo in the hospital, to
which place he was assisted Thursday
morning. The Cup compressor was
started to work Wednesday, Mr. Balfour, who installed it, running the engine tiii night shilt went on duty. Goo.
Parker took charge of the englno for
the night shift and turned on a full
head of steam. Tho engine got on
centre and ho took a crowbar to lift it
over, without turning off steam, and
the bar was forced from his grasp and
thrust against the side of his face
breaking his jaw. Dr. Newcombo was
summoned by telephone and went immediately to tho assistance of tho sufferer.
He Likes North Albertn.
Frank Barber returned Monday from
Edmonton, Alberta, Territory. He
took up a homestead about 05 miles
north-east of Edmonton and will go
back next fall to start into mixed farming. He likes that country very much
and belloves it an ideal place for a
young man to go to to get a home and
to take enjoyment out of lifo. He believes that mixed farming is ono of the
surest ways of making money, but of
course one cannot make so much of It,
nor ao quickly as by means of successful mining operations. Mr. Harbor
thinks oue is singularly fortunate who
can get a stock farm in tho northern
Alberta country and after next fall ho
hopes to make his homo there.
Caught Glanders.
Physicians wore' summoned from
Grand Forks, N. D., to investigate a
case of contagious disease on the farm
of John Peterson, west of North wood.
The doctors found a terrible state of
affairs. The disease is a type of glanders. All the horses on tbe place aro
affected and will havo to be killed. Mr.
Peterson had contracted the diseaso
and was dead; his wife is so ill thnt littlo hopo of hor recovery is entertained.
There are eight or ton children in the
family, allot whom havo been exposed.
Tho place has been quarantined and
all tho means available taken to prevent tho spread of the disoase.
Judge Miller Coining,
J. C. Murray was in Ferguson Tuesday, having business at tho bank and
elsewhere. He thiults we will see a
vory busy summer and many now properties will be added to tlio shipping
list. Judge Miller, he said, would be
back to tho Lardeau in four weeks, and
ho would be provided with abundance
of funds to spend on tho properties of
which he is manager.
A Muy Party.
Mrs. J. Q. McKinnon was tho hostess
Wednesday night of a very onjoyablo
party and ono of the nicest given in
Ferguson this season, in honor of Miss
McKinnon, her sister-in-law. Cards,
ping-pong, etc., woro thc order of entertainment until supper wus sowed al
12 o'clock. Mrs. McKinnon sustained
hor reputation as an excollont entertainer.
Great Northern Systeiii
Being Extended to
Points of Vantage on
Canadian Soil.
President Hill of the Groat Northern system, is constantly reaching out
for tho futuro business of Canadian
mines in Kootenay.
The C. P. It. say they will not build
any moro railway till what they nor.*
havo pays a profit on investment, bin,
they are' shortsighted.
Jim Hill sees ahead, aud knows that
by building now ho will bo ready tpr
business when mining conditions improve and that tho peoplo will appreciate his desire to lend a helping hand to
open up tho mines by giving proper
transportation. Hill knows that the
money spent will bo well spent, and
the'investment is good. In an interview with a Spo-tesman-Revlew representative, Mr. Hill said:
"Wo shall extend thc spur to the.
Granby smelter at Grand Forks, at
once. It is our purpose also to build
into tho Okanagan and tho Sitnilkii-
meen country,"
"I am not prepared now to say how
soon we shall extend the lino to Phoenix, but we must develop that northern
territory. Thoy need coke, and there
is fine coking coal in tho Crow's Nest
and we have a lino road thore now.
We are ready to haul tho coal and
coko, but it has to be made first.
"Wo aro going to oxteud two brandies up north. Wo will build into the
Okauagan country and the Simllkameen, Yes, it is the V., V. __ E., but
most of tho line will be on this side of
tho boundary,
"Wo will havo to mako some large
improvements also on tho Spokane
Falls & Northern. We aro to put down
heavier steel and improve tho grades.
Improvements will be mado as fast as
the business will warrant."
Asked about the settlement of tho
strike, he said: "It all came out amicably. I know thero would be no
strike. Our men did not want a strike.
There wero somo things to get together on, and, that done, the trouble
was over.
"I am going on to the coast to inspect the progress of improvements

mako a stop hero for a short time

FRIDAY. MAY 29, 1903.
Mining men from the working:
properties about Ferguson who
have been to town during the week
all have but one story to tell and
that is the oft-repeated verdict that
follows wise development in this
camp: "The lead is getting stronger and better mineralized as development progresses." We repeat
these words often, for they are the
general report that reaches us, and
it shows that proper development
does in almost every instance bring
forth good results.
What a vast amount of rich mineral there must be in the hills that
rise above our modest little town,
and how little do we know ol the
wealth contained in the cradle in
which she lies.
The prospecting, so far, is conceded to be very limited; only
where the leads come to the surface
here and there have any attempts
been made to search for mineral.
Here prospect holes have been
blasted out of the rock, and we will
say that in this camp scarcely has
there been a failure, where the surface showing was of any account,
lo locate a good vein of ore. In
most cases, however, after the ore
has been found, development was
not continued, but the prospector
quit work and waited for a purchaser. This course is conceded
b) all good business men to be a
decidedly unwise course to take, but
there is more excuse for it than
many will acknowledge. In the
first place the prospector generally
has not enough money to justify
him to thoroughly investigate his
find. He is kept busy doing the
Si oo a year on each claim for the
necessary annual assessment, for
most prospectors have from tour to
ten claims���too many, we will admit. So dependence is had on being able' to sell the property in an
undeveloped or partially developed
Could the men who find the
claims but develop them sufficiently
to enable'a mining expert to go un*
der ground and figure even appro*
imately the quality of the ore and
the probable quantity it contained
tiie prospector would get the large
profits that usually go to the mid<
dlcmcn, and the camp would derive
much more benefit.
Kaslo, and the majority of those
who stayed at home went down to
the dance at Trout Lake in the evening where a fine time was spent.
Most of our citizens, however, contented themselves with a walk up
one or other of the Lardeau branches, those who happened to be lovers
of nature gathered moss and ierns.
There is no doubt that if one is in
satisfactory company a holiday can
be made as productive of real enjoyment in this inexpensive, quiet
way as if they were with a large
crowd. In this nq one has a monopoly. Strolling out on a mountain side or along one of the king's
paths that lead along the course ot
a mountain stream, every living person is on an equality with his or her
neighbor���all of God's creatures
walking on the king's domain. So
although we Fergusonites were far
removed from the flurry and excitement of spectacular celebrations,
we nevertheless did honor to the
memory of the late lamented Victoria.

We have not noticed anything
about Attorney General Eberts having resigned from the B, C. ministry. Surely he will not wait to be
asked for his resignation after the
result ot the past week's investigation. It certainly looks as if he had
the C. P. R. company's interests
more at heart than the countrys,
and yet by accepting a portfolio he
is supposed to safeguard the interests of the province.
Dodgers were distributed about
Ferguson last week by the committee of the Trout Lake dancing
society inviting people to attend a

Ferguson, B. C.
The three claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" aud the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to end, through which three leads pass the entire length, situated at the head of Lexington creek, in the Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenav, British Columbia.
l_ These three claims are located on the western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form one
complete portion of Mineral land of about 156 acres. Tbey lie east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
The group lies fn the "Sitting Bull" and -'Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in tbat district, and work
already done on apjacent extentions has given most satisfactory
results as to extent of ore bodies and increased values witb depth.
The formation is slate and (schist, lying in an immense lime
dyke, and the croppings of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quartz, which gives assays from $8 up on the
Exploitation consists of two open cuts along tbe surface for a
distance of twenty feet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches in width. The value of this ore body was $25.60
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet it has increased
to $40.60. To tap this ore showing and the massive iron capped
ledge close to which it lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distance of 82 feet. Another <25 feet of crosscuttlng
should reach this ledgs at a depth of about 125 feet. When 61 feet
had been driven, an almost'solid body of iron ore three feet thick
was encountered in the tunnel lying against a wall of slate. A
sample at this point assayed $77.60 in gold, sliver, copper and lead.
At a distance of 14 feet from this lead a fine body of ore has been
encountered which, when crossed, proved to be seven and a half feet
wide, carrying the finest looking mineral yet found on the property.
A third ledge which contains the richest ore and widest surface
showing, wIU be reached about July 1st. This ledge when
encountered, will be from 12 to 15 feet wide and great results are
The property has an excellent surface showing. The average
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tinuancy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence of the surface judging from other properties in the near
violnity, some of which are on the same lead and have developed
very rich ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that the Lardeau Mines are as good as
any, if not the best, in the vicinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be made dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end.
