MOLYBDENITE
A Valuable Rare Metal Which is
Found In This District.
MAY BE IN PAYING QUANTITIES
Lack of Knowledge Retarding What
Might Prove to be a Profitable Industry.
LIVE MINING BUREAU WANTED
i For the reason that molybdenite has
been found In what is believed to be
paying quantities in this district a
little information concerning its composition and uses may not be outol
plane at this time. The Eagle only
regrets tbat we have not a department
of mines in this province wilh ao
efficient mineralogist at its command,
which could and would give much more
knowledge of these rare mineral pro
ducts than we can. But, as in many ol her
things, the newspaper has to fulfil the
mission of thoso whom we handsomely
pay in the present unprogresslve government service. Turning to the
Universal dictionary we find the
following;definition : Molybdenite: A
soft minoral ' occurring mostly in
foliated masses, or as aggregates of
minute scales, rarely In tabular,
hexagonal crystals, crystallization, yet
uncertain; hardness, 1 to 1*5; sp.gr.
4'4 to 4'8; lustre, metallic ; color, lead
gray, opaque; laminic, flexible, sectlle;
loaves a gray trace on paper. Composition : sulphur, 410; molybenum,
5!)'0. Found distributed through
crystalline rocks, sometimes In consid-
orttblo amount. Also called molybdenum-sulphide.
Tho Victoria Colonist, an apologist
Tor tho many weaknesses and incapabilities of tho present government
executive, also throws a littlo light on
tlio subject. It says: Tho earliost
experiments regarding the commercial
use of this mineral were mado in Germany about 1853, whon Kurrer 'demonstrated that a combination of molybdenum with a salt of tin produced a
pigment of a blue color. Iu dying silk
this pigment showed a remarkable
durability, but when applied to cotton
was inferior. At that time It was proposed to substitute this pigment for
Indigo, and wo understand that the
process employed by the so-called
"Artificial Indigo"company, operating
extensively in Europe, is to a certain
extent tho outcome of this suggestion.
In Canada, molybdenum is first mentioned in tbe geological survey roport
for 1868 where It is notod as oxistont
in a few places on the north shore of
Lake Superior. Thu transactions of
the American Institute of Mining En
giweors also report Its discovery, a few
yoars later. In what was then Hudson'o
Hay territory.
Turning to thu uso of molybdenum in
other branches of industry, as is
generally known its chief use is in tho
preparation of special steels. For this
purpose It is used in throe forms���(a) a
dark blue, powdered inotul, containing
1)3 to 09 por cent, molybdenum; (b) ferro-
molybdenum, with 00 to 05 percent,
molybdenum; and (cj molybdenum-
nickel, with 75 per coot, molybdenum
and 25 per cunt, nickel.
Us Influence on lronlssimilartoth.it
of tungsten, but the use of molybdenum
In Bteel gives tlio steel a greater toughness at tlio samo timo rendering lt
moro readily worked, whtn hot.
Molybdenum steel also stands hardening better than that alloyed wilh
tungsten. For tool steel, 2 to 4 per
cent, of molybdenum is auded, for other
qualities from 1 to 2 por cent.
Ores of molybdonum, which is nover
found in a native state, bnt generally
in the form ol molybdenite, a sulphate
of molybdenum containing when pure
41 per cent, of sulphur aud 59 o'er cent,
molybdenum, bave been discovered in
many placo?, notably in Sweden where
extensive deposits occur at Veslanfors
and on Kkholin island, Theso deposits
were worked up to 18U7, but the price
of the metal falling In that year mining was discontinued.   It bas also been j
reported from the Thames Goldfleld,
New Zealand, in Arizona and New
Mexico, and more recently near Lako
Chelan in the Okanngan district of
Washington. A vein of molybdenite
ono foot wido, was found on tho lino of
tho White Pass railway, and a company formed at Skagway to ivork It.
This deposit is noticeable as it is
reported to contain $50.00 In gold to
tho ton.
The price of molybdenum having
been discussed the following information regarding production nnd price In
the United States is taken from "Mineral Industry."
1899���Molybdenite, production 8 short
tons, value $50.00 per ton.
Molybdonum,  production   9,550
lbs. value $1.25 por lb,
1900���Molybdenite, production 18 short
tons, value $50.00 per ton.
Molybdenum, production  30,000
lbs., value $1.25 per lb.
No production was reported in 1898.
It may also be pointed out that ore
unless running 42 per cent,
molybdenum, is not purchased, although it may bo concentrated to that
desired tenor.
It will thus be seen that the market
as yot is very limited, and carp should
bo taken not to build too much on a
present sale for a large quantity,
although there are evidences of an in
crease in the near future. The projected Institution of iron industries in
this province will If materialized, offer
tbn most available market for local
molybdenite, and it Is satisfactory to
know tbat we have at hand a supply for
the manufacture of molybdenum steel.
WOMEN SHOULD BAVE A VOTE.
Such was tho decision of tho audience,
who acted as judges, al the Literary
debate last Friday evening. Tho
speakers for the affirmative were A. J.
Gordon, James Lade. James Otto and
R. P. Pettipiece, whilo S. Shannon, A.
C. Cummins and Rev. S. J. Green
championed the cause of the negative.
The attendance was good, and tbe
program much appreciated, which
argues woll for the futuro of this young
organization. Ah instrumental solo by
Miss Klmsly, and a quartette by Mr.
and Mrs. Otto and Mr. and Mrs. Lado
was an onjoyablc portion of the program.
For tomorrow (Friday) ovoning "a
musical and vocal program has been
prepared for by the committee, whilo
next weok another debato will be
arranged for.
Mrs. Otto, Mrs. Lade, A. J. Gordon

Results of the Maiden Shipment
Made a Few Days Ago.
A DULL SILVER-LEAD MARKET
No Other Camp Could Ship at Such
a Profit Under Existing Circumstances.
A REFINERyIaDLY NEEDED
The gross weight of the maiden shipment of the Ruffled Grouse, recently
-.hipped to the Trail smelter, was 11,760
lbs. Moisturo deduction, 2.7 per cent
and weight of sacks. 280 lbs., leaving
the net weight of tore 11,174 lbs. Tbe
smelter assay per ton (the basis of purchase price) was 163.7 ozs. ln silver and
10 per cent. lead. The total contents
wero 014.59 ozs. of silvor at the discour-
agingly low price of 56} cents, per
ounce (tho Triune received 57f> cents
por ounce) for 95 per cent, or $492.08;
1,117 lbs. of lead at 1.404 cents per
lb. for 90 per cent.,'(Triune, received
1.485 cents per lb.) or only $14.11, giving a total gross value for tho shipment
of $507.10. Tho C. P. R charges for
freights! d treatment from the Landing
amounted to $31.01, thus leaving a net
value of $420.18, with the cost of mining, packing and freighting to the
Landing still to bo reckoned witb.
Estimating the shipment at 54 tons and
deducting tho cost of freight and
treatment only, from tho mino to tho
smelter, a net profit of about $00 a ton
Is left for tbo owners. As can be seen
at a glance our lead is a detriment to
us, and unless existing conditions aro
soon changed the outlook for the Lardeau is none too rosy. Of course many
of our properties carry good gold
values and extremely high silver
values, but even tbo owners of these
properties do not feci disposed to bo
lined for having 20 to 55 per cent, lead
in their ores. However, wero the
railroad now under construction completed, or Mr. McCrossuo's Vulcan
furnace in successful operation the
situation might'bo somewhat bcttored,
though British Columbians must soon
mine, smelt, ro.ino and sell their own
mineral products. Tbe groat private
trusts arc rapidly forcing us to this
conclusion, and all said and dono tbo
Eaole believes it is ultimately for the
bost though it pinches rather bard
right now.
Beaton lias been popularly suggested
A Christmas tree entertainment
under tbe combined efforts of Comaplix,
Camborno and the Landing, will be
held in tlie new hall beru Christmas
Eve, the 24!h. Fifty-eight dollars has
already boen subscribed, und success is
assured.
SCIENCE AND HUMANITY,
Science revouls that tho universe
holds the secret of its own being in the
changeless laws of its correlation :
That all man knows of the secret is by
his knowledge ofthe laws by which the
universe has worked Into its present
form, and all real civilization of man
has resulted. Science declares that
the "law of development is the theory
of life;" that no child was ever born
without human parents; that no person
really dead ever came to lifo, and that
the law of gravity was never violated
by a body of "llesh and bones." Science
rests upon facts and laws, reason and
proof. The lirst impulse of onlightened
natural ethics is the supreme allegiance
of the human conscience to tlie good of
the community and the race. What
shall it be: Theology and superstition
or science and humanity ? Choose I���
Torch of Reason.
HORSESHOE AND KLONDIKE.
Joe Murray of the Horseshoe, on
Trout creek, was In town on Tuesday.
He says that while no oro is boing
taken out just now development work
is being vigorously pushed ahead by a
force of six men which will work all
winter. They are driving a crosscut
tunnol, now In 50 ft., and they expect
to tap tbo ledgo at any timo. Thoy
will then have a depth of over 00 ft.
The property is looking better all the
time.' The smelter returns for tho lirst
shipment, about live tons, have not yot
boon received.
Mr, Murray, along with L. JI. Johnson of Helena, Mont., is tho owner of
tho Klondiko group of live claims
located at tho head of Murray ereek,
about 3* miles west of tho Horseshoe
a littlo higher up tho mountain range.
A Chicago syndicate is uow negotiating for this woll known group, but if
thoy do not buy It. tho ownors will continue development work themselves
next season.

A Nettie L.  Hill Property Which

A Company Now Being Organized
to Prooeed With Development Work
OWNED BY TOLEDO INVESTORS
Among tho many properties in thia
district   which    will   commence,  an
extensive   program   o."   development
work  next spring  is the Lono  Star
group.   This property is located on iho I
southern slope of Nettio L. hill, and
consists  of  three  claims, the  Black-
Hawk, Three Friends and   Lono Star. |
It was sold last season by Geo.B.Batho.
the owner, through  A. E. Welch of |
London, Ont., io a syndicate of Toledo
investors   among   whom are Messrs.
Mctzger,  O'Donnell, Bullock,   Jones, |
Tyler, Kirby, MeAbee, Detwiler, Irish,
Pillind aud others. The purchase price I
was advanced by these men as was also I
the   money   with  which   prospecting
development was carried on during tbe
past  season.    They   decided  not W
incorporate a company until they had I
done   somo   work  on  the   property,
enough ut  any rate  to  satisfy  themselves that they had a chance to win
out.    And this they have now accomplished.     After  building  2' miles ol

his mind that the "vested rights"

they don't.
The average elector in the west
is becoming wise to his own interests and for this reason can see no
difference between the old Conservative party and the present Liberal
party. Both stand for protection���
to the trusts���and neither have
made any attempt to carry out their
vote-catching legislation. Anent
the Liberal party the Sandon Paystreak says: "Conciliation courts
that are impotent, alien labor laws
that cannot be made to exclude or
deport, Chinese commissions vested
with powers to lose the truth in a
voluminous report, wholesale importation and naturalization of Japs
and Chinks for Imperial reasons, a
Slocan inquiry which reposes safely
in some departmental pigeonhole,
and a Crow's Nest investigation
which unearthed the monumental
truth that the boys killed on construction by a contractor's cruelty
are still dead���these are a synopsis
of the Laurier government's grand
stand play for the labor vote."
There will soon be big money in

Last Saturday's little blaze at
Cummins & Co's store brings the
fact forcibly to the minds of Fergu-
sonites tbat we still have no fire
protection. The Eagle would suggest th...:.. meeting be held tomorrow evening in the hall, after the
Literary society adjourns, to talk
this matter over. A small outlay
and precaution now might save this
town from being reduced to ashes
.��ome of these days.
In the faceol Junes J. Hill's consolidation of all the railways ol the
north western states, and the evident attempt of J. P. Morgan lo
acquire a controlling interest in our
own C.P.R. system, is it reasonable
for the innocent electors of this
province to hope for a "competitive" railway? Unless the good
people of Canada soon awake Uncle
.Sam's huge private trusts will have
all our monopolies bought up some
morning before breakfast.
The Kootenay Mail has now
developed into a matrimonial advertising medium ; a sort of heart and
hand get-up. Its handsome mar-
riagable American ladies, cures for
throbbing headaches, sexual weaknesses, dyspepsia, stomach |crnmps,
asthma, and other quack and flimflam advls., not to mention Edward
A. Haggen, M. E., Hon. W. C.
Wells, and a has-been politician,
are particularly interesting. But
as an out and out blarney the Mail
is unequalled.
It is not unusual to hear this or
that merchant, firm, corporation,
company or trust complaining of
burdensome taxation. Oh what a
pity about them. But, by the way,
who pays the taxes ? If you look
closely you will find it is the consumer, and the masses���people who
work the most and get the least���-
ot course do most of the consuming.
If you only buy a pair of socks or a
shoe lace or pay rent for a shack
you nre paying tuxes. The salesman
or owner fixes a price to cover
interest and all taxation. The consumer has become so accustomed to
" Theorizing will not bring about
good government no more than it
brings about good bank management or good railway management.
The people of Canada will have
!<ood government when her officials
.uiii servants, high and low, are
embued with the same motives that
govern those who manage and
operate the great financial and
industrial concerns of the country,
and not until then. Men who believe in party first cannot be depended on to give the people good
government, simply because their
leality is to their party rather than
to the people. When men elected
to office or appointed to office are
as true to the interests ofthe people
us are those who are selected to
manage successful corporations,
then the people will have little to
complain of in thc direction of either
unwise legislation or inefficiency in
the management ol thc public's
business."���Nelson Tribune. And
not until an industrial government
replaces our political government
can we expect men to evince the
same interest in our welfare as they
now do for the trusts. The leading
men of today are devoting their
attention to industrial pursuits
rather than politics. But when the
whole people decide to go into
business on. exactly the same lines
as the trusts things will be different
The shareholders���the people���will
then have plenty of choice for
managers, and politics will be eliminated altogether.
The time has arrived at last when
even the mining world must recog,
nize the spirit of the age. The greal
private trusts first entered the. ranks
of ordinary commercial pursuits,
but today the great American Lead
Trust has secured a cinch and, as
might be expected, will look out for
itself, as any other shrewd business
concern would do, It did jiot be1
lieve in competition, so it secured
full control of the smelters in thc
western states and Mexico, and i
now devoting its attention to British
Columbia. Once this :s done the
American Lead Trust will control
th: metal market of the world. It
is true their immense holdings cosi
them over $10,000,000, but what
does that amount to in this trustify
ing age. They have watered this
stock up to $100,000,000 (think ol
it, one hundred million dollars) and
of course the miner must hereafter
pay dividends on that capitalization
and tribute to the shareholders of
the trust. Production must be
limited, higher smelting rates must
prevail, and the metal market must
be subjected to the usual manipulation for the benefit of the few. But
the fool editor who suggests that
the whole people should organize a
trust, without the watered-stock
feature, and give all concerned a
lair deal, is looked upon with pity
and scorn by men with "capitalistic
minds" who will be poorer than
church mice in a few years if present economic conditions are not
changed. Oh yes, the trust is a
nice thing, for those who are
in on it. But are you a'shareholder?
Take lots of it; and say you like it,
you who are looking for a metal
market. The minds of some men are
best reached through their stomach.
At this season of the year quite a
number of properties in the Lardeau
which were working during the
summer months have ceased operation for the winter, thus leaving
news of actual development 911
various properties throughout the
district rather scarce. It is at this
period we are prone to, look back
over the past season's progress,
compare it with lormer season's and
note the changes which have taken
place, and in the case ofthe Lardeau
and Trout Lake district these
changes have been decidedly for the
better, a condition though which is
by no means confined to this portion
of the province. Quite a number
of new properties have already
made maiden shipments or are
rapidly placing themselves in a position to do so with the completion of
the railway this winter. Considerable new capital has been interested
in this camp during the past season,
though not as much as our natural
mineral resources warranted, a few
working bonds were entered into,
and several sales have been made,
the biggest one being that of thi
Ophir-Lade group at $100,000.
There are more properties working
this winter than ever before, and
hence a more substantial pay roll.
Mining companies' offices have been
located here, banking facilities are
being provided, and a good deal of
local building has been done during
the season just closed. Taking the
many conditions, over which a feu
Lardeauites have no control, into
consideration we have the best
young mining camp in this province;
for where is there another, outsidr
of the Slocan, that can ship ore at a
profit under existing circumstances?
The outlook for this winter is nol
too bad, and if Mr. McCrossan gets
his 30-ton Vulcan furnace under
successful operation during the next
two months we may indeed look tor
a lively winter, as much more ore
will then be mined and reduced to
matte than would otherwise be the
case. Next season we will have
railwaX transportation, and then a
gradual but steady transformation
from a primitive to a modern mining
camp is certain. This is the stage
of any mining camp's career when a
great many men make, or endeavor
to make, money, and as money-
making is the chief occupation of
the present generation there should
be no lack of interest shown here by
outs de men desiring to coin a little
capital. And the Eagle must confess that their chances for making
big money in this camp are good.
The Lardeau has already turned out
a few well-fixed men, but it will yet
make millions ior the right kind of
enterprising investors.

When will peoplo learn that tho
laws of Nature are uniform and invariable, and that knowlodgo of, and
obedience to, thoso laws is in itself
virtue, health happiness and safety.
Henry D. Lloyd, who has beon visiting in Germany, says tho socialist
party of that country is greater
than any othor in the empire, and it Is
but a matter of time when it will tako
tho reins of government in Its own
hands. 	
A wealthy man t who died recently
loft a will In which be requested that
his estate, which was composed of
bonds, stocks and money, bo burned.
A heartless newspaper man, referring
to tho matter editorially, says of him
that ho perhaps know it would be
burned ii he took It with him.
This is an age of printer's ink, and
yot the goneral public knows little of
what Is polug on In the world of capitalism. A few years ago a capitalist
whose) business included a province In
its scope was considered a commercial
giant. Now the perspective of thn
capitalist includes tho whole round
earth. 'And some of them are ovon
suspeetod ot having designs upon the
nearby planets.
Many men who by virtue of their
health and strength.and jnergy do not
earc ailg (or their less fortunate comrades. If they are not capitalist? they
aspire to become ono. and of course
cannot bo exoectod to view tho present-
day unjust economic system from the
standpoint of tho average wage-earner.
But the lines are becoming closer
drawn, and a few years more of tbis
trustifying age will force them to
quite another conclusion.
Tbe charge is sometimes made that
socialism Is opposed to Christianity. If
socialism Is antagonistic to Christianity what havo the churches beon doing,
or neglecting to do, that this belief has
gained grnudd so enormously���as It
undoubtedly has? Socialists say the
churches do nut, as a class, teach
Christianity; that the great mass of
tho people hold In the main to the
truths and teachings of Christ; nnd
this sair e great mass of the people is
drifting away from the chu-ches.
Socialism Is now the political and even
religious belief of more people than
ovor before ln tho history of tho world.

In a system of Industry where prices
for the products of labor aro fixed by
competition it Is the hard skin-flint
employer who decides the rate of pay
for the trade. If tho close-fisted grind
Ing employer cuts prices and thus
brings down wages, the would-be generous employer Is compelled to follow
suit or seo his business ruined. Em'
ploycrs whose business Is not a practical monopoly are at the mercy of the
most unscrupulous of their number,
which raises tbo question of whether
thoro is a Christian system In which
selfish rule and the good are compelled
to follow the bad.
Even the party pross Is saying an
occasional word In favor of socialism.
Horo is a paragraph from a recent
issue of tho Nows-Advortlsor of Vancouver, H. C: "It beglnH to look as
if thc Liberal party may in some
Important districts of tho upper mining
country havo to reckon seriously In
the early future with a growth of
organized socialism, which will either
command the looal destinies of tho
party or elso rond it in twain. An
active socialist propaganda is proceeding at Nelson and in tho Slocan riding
���tho latter moro especially���and as
large numbers of tho miners aro
naturalized Americans of Populist
views, they scarcely need conversion
to sooialism. Meanwhile, the sooialism
that is amqngst us naturally feeds and
grows upon tho fact that in the quite
recent past wholly inordinate concessions of public rights and property
have been made almost unrestrictedly,
sometimes by national, sometimes by
provincial governments, to companies,
combines and Individuals who have too
frequently failed to give anything like
adequate value to tho community in

FERGUSON
Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
B E C A U S E
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during thc past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but the new finds and many test
ore shipments are exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point where
mining men coming into the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore from
these mines coming down thc
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are ii
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for thc building up of a
great mining center.
Bat why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, the natural geographic
cat location, the supply trade, the banking institutions, unlimited water power for all
purposes; and the right kind of people to make a town. The ore shipments, increasing
business, and money and enterprise will do the rest.    Come here and see for yourself.
