Plan for Development of Nettie L
and Ajax Mines.
Immense Quantities of Ore Will Be
in Sight When Plans Are Carried Into Operation.
The following; in nn outline of the
plan of development to be followed on
ihe Nettio L. and Ajax during tho coming summer. For tho benefit of those
unacquainted with thc position of the
property of the Great Western Mining
Co., but which position can be seen by
a glance at the new Lardeau map we
will state that tim Ajax lies southeast of
tbe Nettie L. Tho long tunnel on the
Nottio L, was started pretty wall towards the northwest boundary of tho
claim and aftor crossoutting the. load
tho drift haa been coutiouei! till it is
now well within tho Ajax ground. It
is the intentlou of the company to continue this drift till they reach a point
beneath the big shute of oro uncovered
on the Ajax lust summer this will nec-
ees'shate a drift,of about 1,200 feot from
the jipralse mafia last winter, lind at
which point they had a depth or. "00
foot. In drifting towards th*-*.iigftUij-*asl
they continually gain lU-ptli ami iWien
they arrive umler the abovo mentioned
shuto they will have something in the
neighborhood of 000 feel, of ground
over them. To got ah* for this work it
is intended to run threo levols and raise
from one to the other. This is etjual
to running throe tunnels of 1,200 feet
each and will necessitate quite a force
of miners,
The iwosent workings of tho mino
aro one glittering mass of high-grade
oro. At one point thero is T foet of
solid ore and ore that is not low grade,
but will net over $100 por ton oven at
tho present low price of silver and load.
On tho 150 foot level thoy havo drifted
for GO feet in solid ore without a break,
and this lower chute has been tapped
at tho 100 foot level, Thore is ample
oro in Bight now to mako this property
the peer ot anything in tho Slocan
country and when the present workings
aro extended to roach tho Ajax ore
shute the eamp may expect results
which will surpass the expectations of
tho most sanguine.
tho assessment work and asking anyone who wants to purchase an outrageous price for an untouched prospect.       	
Lots of Capital Behina Him.
The Kootenay Mail of May 9, says:
"P. Chesley, who has just 1'ethrned
from Minneapolis, informs us that C.
W. McCrossan has been very successful
in raising capital in the States for his
British Columbia mining ventures.
The development of the Triune will be
pushed on when Mr. McCrossan returns
in about two weeks. The smelting
business will also be pushed, and Mr.
Chesley states the Vulcan smelter bas
behind it very strong capitalists who
will spare no effort to make a success
of it. A railway will be built to connect Ferguson with the C. P. R. at
Trout Lake."
Mr. McCrossan is expected in Fergu*
son the latter part of next week, and
the Eaglo will then be able to give a
full account of Mr. McCrossan's intentions.

Iena on on thc North Star property. It
is reported that last week while operating the diamond brill a voin of galena ore was struck tbat showed between 7 and !> feet. This is exceedingly gratifying, since it demonstrates
-hat this celebrated property will continue to pay dividends for a long timo
to como.
Arrangements have been completed
for the North Star to commence shipping, and this also means a large addition to the force. Tbis iucreased work
on that property is a good thing for the
district, and simply emphasizes the fact
that South East Kootenay is bound to
bo a marvelous rich section.

Tho Senorlta Group.
On the Senorlta group on Canyon
creek where Fred Mummery and Frank
Barber have been working this winter
there is a good showing of grey copper
and galena. This property is only^one
and one-half miles off tbo railway...
Mr. Fool who is interested in this
promising property intends to visit it
in the near future, when the Eagle
hopes to be able to give its readeri/full
details regarding it.
The Sliver Cup.
Rawhiding from the Silver Cup has
come to a close. The present ownors
have taken out over .100 tons iu the
short time they have had tho property.
The oh! company worked for uearly a
year aud took out about TOO tons and
sold tlio property under tho impression
that thoy had skimmed oil' the cream,
Instead Of which wo find tbat the oro
has hardly been touched yot, und thero
is more ore in sight today than thero
was at any lime during tho operations
of tho old owners. This summer the
new management will drift in from tho
Sunshine and thus attain a good depth.
Tlio Oregon Oroup.
John Laing and Henry Jacobsqn loft
on Wednesday morning for tho Oregon
group. Their claini9 havo a tunnol ono
hundred and fifty feet long. Tho boys
have started to crosscut to the hanging
wall nnd expect to drive about 50 feet
beforo striking it. This group is near
the well known Towser property and
has overy indication of being fully as
good as that well known proporty.
The tingle wishes the boys all kind of
success In their present work, as thoy
are tho right kind of prospectors, being willing to got in and test thoir own
property instead of sitting back and
perjuring themselves yoar by year for
IMMENSE PROFITS OF
LOW-GRADE ORES
By Seouomical Reduction ��� The
Largo Mines Handling the Low-
Qrnde Deposits of Free-Milling
Ore Are Demonstrating This Faot.
In an article entitled "A Profitable
Mining Business," the Black Hills
Mining Review ol Deadwood, S. D.,
draws attention to a matter concerning
whioh much has been said, but about
which loo much cannot bo written, inasmuch as it concerns mining in a large
sense, and which means tho economical
reduction of low-grade ores. This is
what it says:
"It seems strange to tho average
reader to have any business connected
witb mining called 'manufacturing,'
Tho fact In tho ease, however, will warrant this claim, as much so as tho milling oi wheat into flour. Tho largo
mines handling the low-grade deposits
of free-milling ore arc demonstrate
this fact, and to tho average mind it no
doubt seems unreasonable, Facts, how*
ever, are stubborn things, and when wo
read the reports of tho Alaska-Mexican
and the Alaska-United Mining companies manufacturing gold by grinding
the auriferous rocks of Douglas island,
and note the results obtained, ive are
forced to admit that tho business of
mining free-milling oro has actually resolved itself down to a manufacturing
proposition. During the month of January tho Alaska Mexican mined and
milled 20,010 tons of ore. Tho gross
receipts for the month were $49,108, thc
oro averaging only $2.1") a profit of
only 70 cents per ton, still thoir total
profit for tho month was $14,070.
"Tho Alaska-United company mined
and milled 10,710 tons of ore during the
samo month, giving a total valuo of
$33,440, the ore averaging only $1.70
per ton, whilo tho working expenses
wero $20,600, or $1.Oil per ton, leaving a
net profit of only 65 cents per ton, still
their total profit for tho month was
$12,741.
"This demonstrates that tho volume
of business transacted has moro to do
with the profits than the mere valuo
contained In tho ore; tho expense per
ton is diminished by increasing tho capacity, and hence the profits are increased proportionately; tho extent and
character ot the deposit being the only
requisite.
"Tho great Homostako mino produced in the year 11)01 $3,630,282, and
this was obtained from ore of no
greater value than 5 por ton, yet from
the proceeds secured this company
pays in dividends 60 cents per share
every month in the year."
The Comstock Gold and Silver Mining company is now ready to push development work on on the Comstock
claim situated just above Circlo City.
A Cleveland company secured this
property a year ago, and la6t season a
fifty-foot tunnel was driven along tha
hanging wall of the ledge. On this
wall the lodge, throughout tbe lengtl
of the tunuel was well mineralized
with copper pyrites, samples of which
gave an assay of 18 per cent, copper,
30 ounces silver, and $C in gold. On
the Burlaco the footwall of the ledge is
mineralized with galena, and it is the
intention of tho company to continue
the present tunnol fifty or sixty feet
and thon .crosscut the ledge. The tunnel is on the steep slope of Galena
creek and each foot of tunnel driven
gains almost au extra foot iu tho backs
overhead, so that with the ledgo crosscut one hundred feet beneath the surface showings, the company will obtain
a good idea of tho value of their property. Tlie nature of the Comstock Oi'C
is that most suitable fur treatment ISv
tho Vulcan smeltor, and as we understand the Golden Link Mining company purpose doing considerable work
this season ou their Sunset proporty
which adjoins the Comstock group, we
are looking forward to tho products of
those two properties contributing materially to tho advancement of this
camp.

Tom Rader of Moyie, was in town
last week. He is one of the ownors of
the Aurora property, which is located
just across the lake from tho St. Eugene, and was feeling very good over a
strike of three feen of galena, in a new
portion of the claim. Work has been
inaugurated on this part of the claim
owing to,-voter in the shaft, and the
change proved to be a lucky one.

THE SAFETY OF
The Mining Industry Has Paid More
Money in Dividenclc, Comparud
With Other Industries in Last 30
Tears Than Any Business Known.
Strike hi Ensi Kootim.'ij*.
The Cranbrook Herald of May Sth
has the following-: "Mining novvs this
week is further evidence of tho fact
that South Kast Kootonay ia a vast
treasure house of precious metals.
The latest and ono of the most satis'
factory pieces of news received for a
long time is that of a big strike of ga-1 among the la'boring elements,"
A great deal has been written of the
colossal fortunes mude in mining and
the monoy that hod been lost in trying
to mako money out of mines. But the
fact still remains thut tho percentage
of loss, where a littlo business sense
has beon omployod in tiie management
and development of mines, is less than
that of any other business under the
sun, while at the same time thc profits
have been larger. The following is nn
extract from an artiole published by
the New York Tribune;
Despite Us load of fraudulent claims
and wildest schemes, the mining- industry has paid more money in dividends,
compared with othor industries started
in the last-IC years than any business
known. Compart* the profits in mining
with the profits of the 156,00,0 odd miles
of railroad, with tho aggregate liabilities of nearly *10-000,0*Jl),000, then yon
willseowhieh pays the most. Onderthe
wing of mining thore exists some of
the safest and most profitable of all
business. Take, for instance, the 12
great-smelting companies, the mineral
pawnbrokers. The smelting companies
that do a strictly custom business show
absolutely and unquestionably the
largest profits of any industry in America. I know of instances where capital
invested in smelting companies bas
been turned five times a year, and each
time the margin of profit has been over
20 per cent, of tho entire amount
handled. They tako no risk; simply
buy the raw gold and silvor in the ore
at a reduced price, extract their cost of
treatment and pay the miner the residue. It is a business where the principal is absolutely safe. All of these
things should show the peoplo the value
of mining. Of late alias como about
that if a mining man presents an enterprise to conservative capital he is looked
upon with suspicion and no assistance
is redered him. Tho investor fails to
realize that the very sinews of commerce oomo from tho mines and that
f.hey are the root of half the successful
industries of this country. Last year,
notwithstanding the fact that capital
gave vory littlo assistance to tho mining industry, there was a steady,
healthy increase of prosperity. Of the
many millions produced from tho mines
tho amount was divided so that ull
avenues of industry pronted, Ovor 10
per cent, went to railroad corporations,
.17 per cent, to mino owners, fully 15
percent, to smelting works, whilo the
residue, US per cent., was circulated
A Phoenix dispatch to tho Spokes
man-Review says: General Manager
Jay P. Graves of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power
company, Limited, will place au order
at once for what is believed to be the
largest electric air compressor ever
built for metalliferous mining purposes
in Eritish Columbia or in the Domin
ion of Canada, The order is for a
sixty drill compressor, and will be used
in tho Granby mines in this camp, as
soon as completed.
Tbo order for the big machine will
be placed with the Canadian Rand Drill
company of Sherbrooke, Quebec, as
soon as tho details can be wji-kud out.
It is expected that it will require
about six months to manufacture tho
compressor, and that itwiil bo installed
and in operation by next November.
Jt will bo built in two separate parts of
30 drills each, so that they can be
operated together or separately. Plans
will bo at unco drawn for tho building
to linuso tbe now compressor, and worlc
ou thu foundations will start as soon a1;
they are ready.
WILL USE ELI-OTRTCITY.
No boilers will bo required for the
new compressor, as it will be driven by
electricity, furnished by the Cascade
Water, Power & Light company, Limited, of Cascade, B. C, tho double service lines uf which aro now nearly completed to tbis camp, a distance of 2li
miles. The Grauby company has made
a two years' contract with tho Cascade
company to furnish 1,600 horse power
as a minimum. The company will
probably require much more power
than this, as some will be used at tho
smelter, and tho mines and company
buildings in Phoenix will also be
lighted in this way.
An order will shortly bo placed for
the dynamos by which the compressor
will be driven. There will bo at least
two of them, of 700 horso power each,
and they will be of the latest type, and
especially adapted for tho purpose intended. This will bo the first power
plant of this kind erocted in the bound
ary, and thc Granby mines will bo the
lirst in this section to bo operated entirely by electricity.
Twenty new air drills are included Jn
the coming order.
Ni.w Process ot Smelting.
News comes from Bttttoof a now-process of smelting that is expected to enable eveu ono per cent, ore to bo mined
at a profit, says tho American .Mining
News. Tho inventor of the now process is a Soutli Carolina man whoso
identity is not disclosed, but Herman
C. Bellinger, a well known metallurgist and smelter man. who mado an examination and test of the invention, declares that by it ores that contain bit
one per cent, copper can be smelted at
a profit. Tho cost of smelting is about
oight cents per pound of copper. By
the new system the ore will bo smelted
with tho heat contained within itsch",
and littlo or no fuel and very little
water will be necessary. Mr. Bellinger, who was formerly chief metallurgist for F. Augustus Hcinzc, is now engaged in buildiug a smelting plant of
his own near Victoria on Vancouver
Island, and will install tho new process
there,

had encouraged the settlement of
families in the town. The Eagle believes that Ferguson is going to be
one of the best towns in West
Kootenay, but gentlemen, we'll have
to get in and rustle and take the
fullest advantage of our opportunities and then after we have got a
good start our natural advantages
will do the rest.
Four weekly Insertions constitutes one
month's advertising.
THURSDAY, MAY   15, 1902.
Ferguson has all the advantages
which are necessarj* for the building
of a good town. The mines are
close and the site is all that could be
desired. We are in no danger of
spring freshets, but with all these
advantages we will neviir have the
town we should have if we don't all
set in and put our shoulders to the
wheel and resolve that this town is
���joing to be all that it possibly can
he. The Eagle is of the opinion
that there hns been a great lack of
enterprise in the matter of handling
our advantages in the past, those
who owned the townsite were too
ready to depend on the natural advantages of Ferguson and sit down
.ind wait for people to come in here
nnd build up the town. While good
progress has been made and our advantages have certainly worked in
our favor, yet we think that more
progress could have been made and
we think that it is a duty those
interested in the Ferguson townsite
owe to themselves and to the town
lhat they gat in and work to make
ihis the place it should be. For in*
stance we have not got a sidewalk
worth the name in the town. There
is. some sidewalk, but it has been
1-uilt by the enterprise of those who
nwhed the buildings it benefitted.
The townsite owners should build a
sidewalk as far as the Hotel Windsor which would improve the appearance of the town considerably
Mild would be a great convenience
to a great many of our citizens.
Then again, there is a good chance
for an enterprising man to build a
couple of business blocks with
offices up stairs. These are really
needed as there is not a vacant place
far a business man to go into at the
present time. Only the other day
Mr. Robert Hodge, lawyer, was
'.loking for oflice rooms and if it
had not been for the kindness of
Mr. Pool who gave him his own
-Nice, Mr. Hodge would either have
had to quit town or open an office
in one of our hotels Two business blocks in Ferguson would be
��ll rented b.lore the close of the
present summer and would return
handsome profits to thc mini who
'-.ad the enterprise to erect them.
Then again we are sadly in need of
���if. least half a dozen dwelling houses
:o rent to families. Men with
imilies have come to Ferguson and
tave had to leave because there was
io place they could get to put their
'amities in and they were not in a
losition to build a house themselves,
���amilies make a town. Single men
ire here to-day and away to-morrow,
���tit a family man settles in a town
iad makes it his home, takes aa

A short time ago the Revelstoke
Herald accused the Eagle of stealing an article from its columns regarding the Triune. The article in
question was not stolen, but one of
our own with a part of its* contents
reading the same as that ��� of the
Herald's article which couldnot have
read otherwise. It is not likely that
the Eagle would go to the columns
of the Herald for information regarding mines that are right at our
door. Now the Eagle certainly has
a kick coming. The Herald of May
io comes out with an article clipped
from the Eagle regarding the recent
new strike on the Beatrice. The
Herald deliberately made a swipe on
the Eagle as it did not even doctor
the Beatrice article or give us credit
tor it. The Herald better think
twice before it makes any more uproars about stealing articles or go
way back and sit down.

Prom tho way the Herald goes after
the Craubroo;. bachelors, it is quite
evident that its editor is a happy married man, if he speaks from experience.
If Cranbrook is anything like Ferguson
it is certainly not the bachelor's fault
because thoy are not married. Just
give them time, they'll get there all
right. This is what the Herald bas to
say about them:
"The giving of a bachelors' danco in
Cranbrook and tho evidence of its gen*
erous support, shows conclusively that
Cranbrook has too many of thc boys
who are not doing their tbeir duty.
Think of it! Twenty to forty bache*
loi'B. What is tho matter with you?
Why are you not assuming tho rospon*
sibilities of life? Don't you know that
you are not men iu name and in fact, so
long as yon hang to the selfish idea
that it ie bottor for man to live alone?
Why, mon, you don't know what real
happiness Is. Think of it when you go
to your eheorless room at night. Who
cares whether you come or go? Who
cares whether you are sick or well?
Who cares whether you are prosperous
or otherwise? What are you thinking
of, men? Don't yon know that there
are good women everywhere, who will
make a home for you and life worth
the living? Get a move on you, bachelors of Cranbrook, and do your duty!
This paper would like to print man^
wedding notices within tho next year.
Shame on your selfishness! Shame on
your lonlinoss! Shame on your fears
to assume the responsibilities that your
Creator intended for you!"   ���
