FERGUSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA, APRIL 17, 1902.
$2.00 A YEAR.
BREAKS THE RECORD
Sliver Cap Shipments for the Past Month Has
Reached the $17,500 Mark
The New Owners Display Typical Energy���Nine
Claims In Group.
WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
Messrs. Pool and Young took over
thc SUrer Cupand Sunshine on the 13th
ol last month. Up to April 13th, exactly ono month, the; havo takon out
high grade oro to the value of over
���17,500, which breaks all previous records for this phenomenal mine. Not
bad for tho first month under tho now
ownership.
It simply shows what tho Eagle has
maintained from tho start, that under
eareful, intelligent and enterprising
management, free from tho methods of
the "boomster," the mines of this camp
are capable of producing fortunes that
will paralyze tho pessimists. Fulfilling
a promise made by tho Eagle in announcing the purchase of the Silver
Cup, ..�� give this week a lew particulars concerning this banner mine whim,
will prove interesting reading built tt
outside s und residents of tho camp.
NINE OLAIMS IN OHOUP.
The property consists of nine claim
and fractious/ namely: Thc "Silvei
Cup," "Stiver Cup Fraction," "Sun-
shine," "Excelsior," "Excelsior Era, ���
tion," "Gold bug," "Mountain,
"Mountain Fraction" and "Goldseeker
Fraction." All nre crown granted but
one.
The viino on whicli the developmen
work  has been done  run  north we,*
through tho Silver Cup tlnd Sunshin*
claims, parallel to a lime dyke.   Thi
works are at an altitude varying Iron
11,000 ti) 7,000 feet above sou level.  The
property is located on Silver Cup hill,
situated between the south fork uf tlio
Lardeau river and Trout Lake, and distant about 7i miles from Fergusou���
wugou road four miles, trail three and
a half miles;
The rtilli'nad now under construction
between Kootenay lake and Trout luke
will sate the long haul to Thomson's
Landing, which has lieuii the snipping
point up to this winter. Tho railway
will be finished by June 1.
A MILE UNDERGROUND.
The work on the property consists of
over a mile of tunnelling, drifting,
sinking and upraising. The develop
ment work Is on two paraliol veins
aboni sixty feet apart, whieh some people ueliovo is all cue big ledge, with
paystreaks on each wall, as more or
less ore Is found between the two main
paystreaks. Tho oro now being takon
out is the result of nearly two years
steady development work by tho old
company. No ore was stoped between
March 1900 and the present winter, but
the development work don�� during thut
period prodttcod over 250 tons of lirst
class oro without any stoping boing
done. This ore when shipped to the
���roeltor realized about 4150 to the ton.
Tho oro chutes at the lowor levels are
much moro extended than in tho upper
iovols; and at the bottom of tho winze
which has beeu sunk from the lowest
level, there is one of tho best showings
ln tho mino, all of which promises
great things for the long tunnel which

TIIE NEW STRIKES.
W. B. Pool nnd B, Crilly went up to
ho Cup on Saturday on a regular inspection trip. Tho Eaglo was not able
to interview either gentleman, as thoy

nelr return to arrange for more storage
���oom for ore and to hire more minors.
It is reported, botvever, that moro now
nre bodies havo bien discovered, and
Lhat thero is plenty of room in tho mine
I, put at least forty minors on actual
ire.   The fact that all available mon
re boing hired seems to confirm this
report.
Tho new strike made several days
��� go has widened out to three feet of
lean shipping oro and is one of the
_roatest ever seen in this camp. Word
was brought down from the mine by
Dave Cowan on .Monday, that still another ore body had been struck. Some
men wore put to work in a crosscut
which bad boen abandoned by the old
management. On Monday morning

Strange us it may seem there is certainly more ore in sight in tho mino tt
tho present moment that) there was last
fall, before tho Morn-Payne outfit commenced stoping and she's looking bettor every day. Competent judges say
thoro Is yet from one to two years' mining in tlie tipper workings alone.

Tho Sunset, mine near Cody recently

This makes a total of 430,000 paid in

tons: Enterprise, ISO tons; Ottawa, 7
tons; Neepawa, 00 tons; May, 5 tons;
Pay Streak, 5 tons.   Total, 1,028 tons.
Tlio Ruth mino is expected to resume

development work has been steadily
carried on. A strike of carbonates Is
reported to have boon made recently on
ouo of the claims of this property, running 200 ounces silver to tho ton.
One of tlio most Important developments ever made in thu dry oro belt of
tho Slocan is the recent strike of 2*
feet of high grada ore at u vertical
depth of 800 feet in the Howitt mine
near Silverton. Tlio voin was tapped
at a point 1,000 feet from the portal of
the tunnel. This strike, with there-

Amount of Output Is Growing lo Large
Proportions,
In a comparatively short, timo seven
blast furnaces In Boundary smelters
will be reducing Boundary oro. Four
of theso belong to Granby smelter, two
to the Mother Lode, one to tho Sunset.
This will give a combined daily output
of not less than 2,500 tons at the rate
of 75.000 tons per month, or 000,000 tons
per year.
In other words, in a couple of months
or thereabout, Boundary mines will bo
reducing oro nt tho rate of closo to
million tons annually. This does not
mean that this amount will be smelted
in tbe calender year 1002, but that long
before the end of this year this rate
will prevail.
It is thus evident that, while from
various causes general business conditions throughout the Boundary arc not
at present all that could be desired, yet
the prospects for the future���more or
less remote���havo a distinctly roseate
hue. :
Smelting in tho Boundary must be
done cheaply to be done profitably,
We are favored by having ores that are
largely self-lluxing, und this Is en-
chanced by labor-saving devices in use
ut tlio smelters. The margin of profit
is of courso closo, but thero is sonic
margin, and that is the chief point.
As soon as Boundary mines begin to
pay dividends, which il is believed will
be some timotbisyear, thero will be- no
lack of capital for the further exploitation of our vast mineral resources. We
can then say: We have the mines, we

THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 19C2.
The remarkable development in
ihe Silver Cup mine since the new
owners assumed control means
more to the Lardeau in general and
Ferguson in particular than may appear at first glance. If anything
were needed to establish the permanency of this camp the purchase
of the Silver Cup by local men and
the change of policy resulting therefrom have supplied it. We do not
by this intend any reflection on the
previous management. We are
aware that before the Eagle passed
under its present control, it occasionally criticised and seldom eulogized the former owners and their
representative in B. C. But we
wish to say right here th&t we have
nothing against Mr. Dedisheim, nor,
do we think, have this town and
district any cause to condemn that
gentleman. He came here with a
long and varied mining experience
in Europe, but he came as a
itranger to our language, to our
mining methods, and to the ways of
nm people. Notwithstanding these
handicaps lie showed himself above
all things a thorough gentleman, he
greatly improved the condition ol
he Silver Cup, bought m,pst of his
supplies from local merchants, contracted with local men for ore transportation, and hired local miners
ind laborers. Ferguson and the
Lardeau have no kick coming
Against Mr. Dedisheim and we wish
him every success wherever he may
RO.
It was the policy, however, ofthe
(lorn-Payne outfit, and consequently
jf their managers, to give as little
information to the public as they
could. Probably they kne,w their
,-.-*. n business best and as thc mine
was theirs, they had a right to do as
they liked with it. They ran ihe
mine solely in their own interests
and naturally did not pay much at-
-.nlion to the interests of the camp.
Under thc new owners, the Eagle
Relieves the case will be changed.
Messrs. Pool and Young, and the
r/ndicates behind them, hold large
interests in the Lardeau besides the
. Cup. They are more heavily interested than any olher concern operating here. Their management of
the Silver Cup will no doubt be
iharacterized by a solicitude for the
welfare ot the camp as a whole as
well as for thc success of the mine
itself. They doubtless realize that
ihe success of the Silver Cup means
the success of the Lardeau. They
have already reversed the secretive
policy of their predecessors. Manager pool was always ready to give
the news of his properties to the
public und the Eagle hns already
'.mud that it is not met with a
stand off," when it has occasion to
'apply   for   information   about   the
latest ajid greatest acquisition.
The Eagle congratulates the new
proprietors not only on their general success in the Lardeau, but upon their willingness to take the public into their confidence when important information is to he imparted.
Mining in the Lardeau is taking
on a new phase which is most important from the point of view of
production. One by one thc more
developed properties are emerging
from the condition ol prospects,
handicapped by financial difficulties and intermittently productive
for the purpose of warding off the
sheriff, into that of mines financed
by strong companies, with ample
funds for development, and in a
position to study economy of operation. Once having arrived at this
stage the Lardeau will develop
rapidly in respect to the mining industry; but it must be confessed
that it has taken a long time to arrive. We (eel, and feel very
strongly, that developments will be
taking place in the Lardeau which
��� .���I--
will carry them as far beyond present anticipations  as the fact of today are beyond the anticipations of
two years ago.
A very curious and interesting
feature of these developments is
that they are due to initiative enterprise and capital. Capital which J
comes into a country comes into it
to stay, and it does not matter much
where it comes from, Even the
profits are largely reinvested and
made fruitful in tlieir turn. The
important thing is to get capital,
not to get it from any peculiar
source. Our experience of English
capital   in   this  country   has   been
singulary unfortunate recently. Extravagance, mismanagement and
waste have, in some fatal manner,
seemed to follow upon its entry.
Whereas economy, development and
profits have signalized each invasion of mining capital from the
United Stales. So that there is little doubt that the present incursion
into the Lardeau mining district will
at least serve our pockets, if it does
not suit our prejudices,
