The Camborne Miner gives the following report of the meeting of directors of the Ophir-Lade Gold Mining
Syndicate, Limited, hold on the Eva
mountain last week while the directors
were visiting their mine there:
"The first mining company mooting
ever held in Camborne was convened
yesterday at the Oyster-Criterion mine.
The company is styled the Ophir-Lade
Gold Mining Syndicate, Limited, and
besides their properties here they own
somo valuable holdings near Ferguson.
Those presont were F. W. Godsal and
W, F. Cochrane, two wealthy stock
men and ranch owners of Alberta; J. J.
Young, president of tho Calgary Her*
aid Co., Limited; W. B. Pool, S. A.
Sutherland, Robert Hodge, the Lade
brothers and B. Crilly.
"On motion of J. J. Young, seconded
by W. F. Cochrane, W. B. Pool was
olecteJ president and manager, and F.
W. Godsal vice-president, Robert
Hodge, attorney of Ferguson, was appointed solicitor and secretary for the
company, and James Lade, superintendent of the minos here. The Imperial Bank at Ferguson were appointed
bankers. A. G. Street, stamp mill expert, was present and the question of
the cost of stamp mill, tram way and
machine drills was gone into.
"After considerable discussion and
examination of the recent development
work done on the property it was decided to purchase and instal without
delay a stamp mill, tramway, aad
power to operate drills.
"The visitors were greatly pleased
with the rapid and effectual manner in
which Superintendent Lade has carried
on the work since the properties were
acquired. In a little over three weeks
two tunnels, one G8 feet and one 60 feet
havo beon driven, in addition to considerable surface work. Some very
rich quartz, with visible free gold, was
encountered, although the ledge being
driven for will not be reached until another fifty or more foot have been
gained.
"The annual meeting of the Ophir-
Lade Mining Syndicate, Limited, was
hold in Ferguson on Wednesday July
23rd, and F. W. Godsal, W. B, Pool, J.
J. Young, W. F. Cochrane, T. Kilpat-
rlck, superintendent C. P. R. at Revelstoke, S. Sutherland, Robert Hodge,
James Lado and B. Crilly were elected
directors for the ensuing year. Messrs
Pool and Young have sold out their
interests in the Nettle L. nnd Silver
C'iip, both silver-lead properties, and
will from now on devote their attention
exclusively to gold mining."
(   A FORTUNATE SYNDICATE.
It looks as though tho Pool-Young
syndicate, which has made such a success with silver-lead properties, is going to bo equally successful with gold
mining. Thoy are noted for getting
hofd of the biggest and best things in
the Lardeau and for ^making a suijcgtjo
of everything they tackle.
Their last acquisition is looked on as
the biggest and richest property of the
Jas. Lade has been doing assessment
work on claims oi his near the Triune.
He brought down some of the ore Monday and had A. H. Holdich assay it.
The result was 80 oz. silver and $22 in
gold per ton. The claims are in the
rich bolt of the Silver Cup and the
Triune.
The Capo Nome region is one of
metamorphic roeks, such as mica,
schists and gneiss, holding tbe gold
finely disseminated through them. No
true bedrock has been found in the
placers, but a hard, blue clay, about
eight feet down, has been given that
name.
inch. Tt is flexible and will stand wear
almost indefinitely, making it of great
value for air drill work.���Ex.
S. A. Sutherland and Robert Hodge
made a trip to Camborne last week in
connection with the Oyster and Rossland. Mr. Sutherland secured a large
specimen of quartz from the property
showing froe gold in large quantities.
It is estimated the samples contain at
least $10 in gold which would bo equivalent to several thousand dollars to the
ton.
A very serious cave-in of ono of tho
stopos in the 500-foot lovel of the Le
Roi mine occurred on the night of July
27. A number of men wore entombed
and General Superintendent Louis A.
Dunkle was killed. Evory effort is boing mado by the rescuing parties to recover the bodies.
On Saturday Messrs. Pool, Godsal
and Crilly visited the Beatrice mine
which is situated about wid way between
Ferguson and Camborne. The Beatrice
contains the. .'largest showing of any
proposition in-tbe camp, tho principal
ere shoot being, as far 83 at present ascertained, 100 feet in length. The
property haB shipped several hundred
tons of ore running over $125 to the
ton.
which he described ns being tho bost
day's outing in his experience.
J. T. Lauthers left some rich specimens of ore, carrying copper
glance, at the Eaglo otlleo Saturday
from the Copper Mountain Syndicate's
property on Surprise creek. Mr,
Lauthers returned to the propel ty
Monday, taking with him a paok train
loaded with supplies and also six men
to work the property. He wishes us to
correct the statement mado in last
week's Eagle that 500 feet had been
done on the "Taxes" claim. This
should have read on all of Mr. Lautk-
er's claims.

W. S. Riblet, representing the Aerial Tramway Co. of Nelson, was in
town Monday and in company with H.
\V. Gender visited the Triune with the
idoa of looking over tho ground preparatory to constructing.a tram to the
mine which will be dono in the near
future. By this means tho management will be able to keep tho mine
working und shipping during the winter months.
Mr. Harvey Renkenborger of Chicago, a stockholder in the Metropolitan
and Smelter Co.'s of Ferguson, spent
the past week in the town and district.
He visited the Triune with Mr. Gender
and thc Ferguson brothers Monday and
loaves Saturday morning for the Coast.
He expressed himself to the Eagle as
being highly delighted with his visit,
particularly the  trip to the Triune,
Walter Edwards, tho well known
cook and trapper returned to his home
in Ferguson Tuesday from Isaac creek,
where he and Ed. Graham spent tho
spring months trapping. They succeeded in capturing eight grizzlies,
several cariboo, besides marten and
other small game. Spooking of tho recent excitement over the reported rich
strike of free milling gold quartz on
Isaac ereek, Mr. Edwards says that ho
was on the ground when the rush took
place and when the reported rich strike
was made, but tlio strike was very
much overestimated. He says the district has not yet been shown to be a
free milling camp. Thoro are some
good ledges that carry free gold, but
not enough to cause one to get excited.
However, Mr. Edwards says there aro
a good many ledges that carry fair
values in galena and he thinks witb u
little work done the camp may prove
fairly rich in silver. Quite a number
of men rushed in wben the report was
circulated about the discovery of gold,
but now there are but six men left and
tbey aro doing assessment on their
claims. Mr. Edwards describes tbe
Isaac creek camp as being an ideal
place to shoot big game as well as
grouse and partridge.
lot. So plentiful is tho yellow metal
in sight that some of tho old gold miners working on the property say tbey
could make $10 a day grinding tho
quartz in a hand mortar and panning it
out. As much of the rock runs several
hundred dollars per ton in free gold it
needs no stretch of the imagination to
realize that this could bo easily done.
If the Ophir-Lade Syndicato pines
any of their stock on the market it will
be eagerly takon up.
About the remit. Stilk..
Much was expected from tho purposed
meeting of the executive of tbo Associated Boards of Trade at Pernio this
week, but tbe members of thut august
body failod to put in an appoaranee.
Whether their absenco wus duo to lack
of interest in the Fernie labor troubles
or fom interested motives it Is a diffloulty to say, but ono thing Is almost
certain tbat they missed un opportunity
of manifesting their usefulness to the
people of British Columbia. Fcrnio
has always taken an interest in the
Bilver-lead question and assisted in
every way to help West Kootenay in
matters in which they were vitally
interested, even when the issue' at
stake made no material dllfercnco to
the prosperity of our town, bjjt now
that Fernie is passing through deep
waters they manifest, an indl.Wetico
that is bard to understand.        ,..���
The town has been very quiet and
tbe strikers are behaving like gentlemen, , Some oxcltement was shown
Wednesday and Thursday on receipt of
a telegram from the east stating that
about one hundred and fifty mon wore
oil their way from Pennsylvania to take
tlio places of the men on strike. Fully
50. people were at the station yesterday
to meet the train, but they were pleasantly disappointed as only two of the
supposed "scabs" put in an appearance.
Upon boing questioned one said in regard to thoir coming to Fernie that
Ellas Rogoi'8 hud wired tbem that tbe
Bt .'ike was over and tbat all tbeir expenses to B. C. would be paid. One
hundred und forty men accepted the
oltor and started for Fernie, but at
Medicine Hat they learned that the
strike was still on and one hundred got
off at Frank, the rest coming to Michel.
Ho said that the men would not think
of starting work at Fornio till the
strlko wus over.

Mining II Itll.lns.s.
Mining is a business pure and simple,
and If investors would only consider it
so and eliminate the gambling feature
thoro would bo many less losses mado
in what are generally termed mining
"investments,'' ami the lossos would
not average any more than those encountered In any line of business, Tbo
men wlio aro following mining from a
business standpoint are making money.
By following it upon business lines
thoir risk of loss is no greater than it
would be In any other commercial
undertaking, but their opportunity for
profit is many, many times increased.
The mining sections of the western
states are inexhaustible, and contain
minerals of incalculable value. There
is a vast field for investment and a field
from which oue can pick and choose.
Thore is no need to make an injudicious
investment where so much is offered
that is good, and it is by careful selec*
tion that the mining or business risk is
reduced to the minimum and tbe great
est opportunity for success and profit
taken advantage of. Thore is no competition in the gold market. Produce
all you can and it is worth $20.07 per
ounce. Tho riches that are gained aro
earned from mother earth, tho fountain
of wealth, and not from your neigh
bor's pocket. By careful investment
in a proved mine, risk can practically
bo eliminated and as every mine was a
prospect once, or tbe purchase of an
interest in a prospeot, a property as yet
unproved, may also bo considered a
good business risk if the investment be
properly made.���Journal.
Ferguson received a visit this weok
from two versatile entertainers. Miss
Pauline Johnson and Mr. .!. W. Mc-
Rayo. This was the first occasion on
whieh Fergusonites havo bad the opportunity of hearing professional talent
in the town since the camp was started.
It was a red letter event und the youth,
beauty and fashion of the town turned
out en masse, every seat in the hall being occupied at $1 per head. Miss
Johnson's recitations are all of her
own composition. She is bright and
clever anil her facial powers aro wonderful. Her rendering of "Ojistob'
seemed to please tbe audience ver.,
much. Tho entertainers brought forth
rounds of applause by tbe scene at u
dance in a lunatic asylum. It is indeed
rarely oni? meets a more enthusiastic
crowd than that which greeted Miss
Johnson and. Mr. AIcRaye, who arc
charming entertainers. And we are
pleased to bo able to inform the pub
lie that another performance of an entirely new order will bo put on by Miss
Johnson and Mr. McRaye in Eagle hall
in two or three weeks, on their return
trip, and we aro certain they will be
greeted by a bumper bouse.
The ladies and gentlemen in charge
carried out tbe arrangements forthe
concert in a very effective and successful manner, a stago being erected am!
the hall decorated with (lowers and
ferns, the only omission being tho failure to exteud the usual oourtesle. to

ROAD REPAIRING.
Some time ago the Eagle drew
attention editorially to the bad condition of the road from Beaton to
Trout Lake and Ferguson, but since
that time we are glad to see the
government had some necessary re*
pairs done and now while the road
is not so  good as  it might be, in
places, yet on the whole it is a fairly
good mountain road and the stage
lias been making fair time lately and
passengers  do not  suffer nor are
they ip danger ol having an arm or
limb broken.    Thus it will be seen
that a word to the wise is sufficient.
When it is seen that injury is done
to a district by a piece of road being out of  repair the   lands and
works  department  through   their
representative  in  the   district will
have the work done if the appropriation is not exhausted.    However
there is a bit ot road between  Ferguson and Eight Mile that is sadly
in need of immediate attention.    It
is very important  that this   road
should be  repaired at once lor the
Silver Cup mine has a large quan*
.tity of ore to be hauled over the
road  to Trout Lake and it is too
bad that so many wagons are being broken in the endeavor to get
the ore down when ior the price of
one wagon the road could be put in
good condition.
Then again the Triune people
want to send ore down to the smelter, but both mines find difficulty
in getting the cartage men t�� haul
loaded wagons oyer the road.
.And again the. Silver Cup people
have ordered an air compressor
plant to be installed at the mine and
the Triune people have ordered an
aerial tramway. Difficulty will be
experienced in getting all this heavy
machinery to Eight Mile if something is not done soon in the way
of repairing the road. We feel
that the appointment of Mr. Kin*
man to the position of general road
supervisor for the district is a wise
and popular one. What we have
seen of his work and methods has
been highly satisfactory and we
trust that he will take a ride over
the road referred to and we feel sure
lie will find that our representations
are correct and we feel certain he
will do his best to have the griev
nnce removed.
Rev. T. K. Fisher preached Sunday night in Eagle hall to one of
the largest congregations that has

towards tho hospital locally and the
Eagle has been requested to receive
subscriptions from outside points which
will be acknowledged through the
columns of the Eagle each week.
There is Something like $l,50(Jmore to
raise and wo hope that those Who have
