On Their Return From
Revelstoke
Another deal that means a boost
for the Lardeau was concluded some
days ago, by which J. W. Westfall and
his local syndicate secured a one-
third interest ln tho Fidelity group,
familiarly known as the Abercombe
group, adjoining tho Mountain Lion
b_ut.li proporty on the American hill.
The group consists of six claims on
which on which a great deal of development has been done, showing the
property to contain large veins of
ore and of great richness. As we
pointed out on the I2t.li ult. tbe
property lies in the same belt as the
Silver Cup und the character of ore is
vory similar. We also said that Mr.
Abercombo would havo to make a deal
in order to carry on necessary development, and we think bim fortunate
in making a deal with the above named
syndicate nud the company Is fortunate in securing an Interest in the
fidelity. Thus lt Is good for both
parties, for tho property and for the
district. The men at the head of the
syndicate know a good thing when
they see lt and they are the sort of
men who make a proposition a success,
or if it turns out unsatisfactorily they
can realize It In time.
We understand that tho syndicato
intend to put the property into a good
condition for stoping and then sell to a
mining company.
The ore carries gold averaging $20
to the ton together with good silver
and load values. Its nearness to the
lake, line tunnel und tram site, water
power, wood and Its situation being
free from snow slides all tend to enhance its value.
A Large Number Present. Speeches

is a very gratifying exhibit considering all things.

H. A, Solly,
Curate,
On Monday night a banquet was
given to A. J. Gordon and Sam
Wright who arrived from Revelstoke
early in tbe evening.
Promptly at 9 o'clock Geo. B. Batho
led to tho dining room and look the
host's seat at tho head of tb
table and about CO men, pioneers
and residents of Forguson and district
followed him and took their seats,
Mrs. Stokes who runs the dining do
partment at the King's served an
excellent turkey dinner, and a good
feature of the dinner, commented on by
several was tho absence of intoxicating
beverages, showing tho banquet to be
a genuine sober expression of sympathy and respect for the abovo
named gentlemen.
After justice had been done to Mrs,
Stokes' good cooking Mr. Batho rose
and expressed the pleasure he felt at
seeing so many ot tho boys present to
do honor to the return of our guests
who had suffered In a good cause and
for which we were all more or lo6s
to blame, himself in particular, but
he thought the courso thoy had takon
perfectly justifiable.   (Cheers.)
The first toast of the evening was
"Our Guests," coupled with the
names of A. J. Gordon and Sam
Wright. Mr, Gordon arose and in
a neat speech expressed himself feelingly for tho honor dono him. It wan
somewhat unexpected and as ho had
only beon back a short time had not
time to prepare anything adequate to
the occasion, however, alter touching
briefly on tho recent trouble and his
part in it said tbat the sympathy and
good will the presence of bis bearers
there to wellcome him expressed,
amply repaid him for his inconvenience
and expense in connection with the
affair.   (Prolonged Cheers.)
Mr. Wright bogged to be excused
and askod Mr. Gordon to respond for
him. Mr. Gordon again thanked his
hearers on behalf of Mr. Wright. Mr,
Wright was a genial travelling companion and a cheerful gaol bird,
(Laughter.) An injustice and hard*
ship had boen imposed on him and as
ho depended on labor, living entirely
by the sweat of his brow lt meant uo
small concern to him. (Cheers and
cries of "we will share it." )
"Tho Ladles" tho next toast, was
responded to by W. Glenn and A. F,
Rankino. Mr. Glenn: I would'nt
really like to say how muoh I do love
the Ladies,   (Laughter.)
Mr. Rankine: I'm like Mr. Glenn,
God bless the ladies.
Mr. Batho then announced tho toast
"Our Industries," ably responded to
by A. H. Holdich and Frank Holten.
Mr. Holdich spoke first and after an
intelligent laudation of the, Lardeau's
mineral wealth touched briefly on
some of the drawbacks to same. He
thought tbe mining laws of the country
could bo groatly improved 60 as to
foster mining Instead of a detriment,
(Applause.)
Mr. Holten w��b of the same mind as
Mr. Holdich. The country was rich
in mineral resources but the industry
was harassed by inadequate mining
laws.
Iu the next toast "Tho Press," responded to by Messrs. Ryan and Francis
(Mr, Woodward being unable to attend)
the feeling for tho gtiosts and resentment against their treatment showed
very strongly especially in tho case of
Mr. Ryan who, after an eloquent
discourse on a fow generalities in
oonneotion ,'wiih tho press, so id ho
gave it a3 his opinion that a serious
mlscariage of Justico had taken place
arising largely from over-zeal but
moro from a want of legal training
and knowledge,   (Prolonged cheers.)
Mr. Francis bogged to be oxensed.
Mr. Ryan had expressed his sentiment
entirely. He thought where the press
was operated in sympathy and to the
best interest of tho peoplo it had fulfilled Its mission and as his connection
with the press was purely of a mechanical na.*.:re, ho would go way
back and sit down.
The last toast "Our Business Inter
ests," was responded to very neatly
by Mr. Hoi-ton of tho Imperial Bank,
after which an adjournment was made
to the smoking room where a concert,
at which songs were contributed by
E. Stuart, Bob Burns, C. Woodrow,
L. J. Francis, James Cummings
and others, and a recitation by Mr.
HOldioh, brought a vory pleasant and
successful evening to a close.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Colonel Prior seems disposed_to
grant the bonus asked by  McKen-
zie & Mann of the Canadian Northern for construction of that system
of railway through the Yellowhead
pass to the Pacific coast.    The subsidy asked for    is $2,500,000   in
cash and a further grant of about
8,000,000 acres of public lands.   In
addition  to this they are asking a
bonus of $6,400   a mile from the
Dominion government.    We would
be glad to have the Canadian Northern enter  the  province   but  it
seems to us the time is premature
for there are thousands of acres of
agricultural   lands    and     mineral
wealth in untold abundance, not to
mention the vast timber resources
lying south of the main line of the
C. P.   R. and extending    to    the
international    boundary.       These
lands have only been located but
sparsely and are  capable of supporting many hundreds of farmers
who  could  realize  big profits  in
mixed     farming.        The mineral
resources of   this   large   territory
are    only   lightly tapped and the
advaniages of the   field   to    the
investor are very much greater than
ever they were, for the mining now
tarried on is in most cases legitimate and   the whole territory has
b.en proven to contain large and
numerous  bodies   of rich mineral.
Therefore with  a   good    surface
showing   and  wise   management,
which  is essential,  the chances of
making large profits on the investment are good.   As to the timber,
it has not begun to be exhausted.
There is enough of excellent timber
in this area to supply the consumption for fifty years and not counting the continual renewal by growth,
So we ask where would any great
benefit   accrue  to   the interior of
B. C. by the advent  of the Cana*
dian Northern.     It would benefit
the coast cities to be sure but the
interior very little.    And no niore
territory is required to be opened
up for some yerrs yet.
C. It was said that the cow in
question supplied milk for five
hotels as well as all the private
houses in town. After the town 's
wants were supplied what was left
was sent to the Netti e L. mine.
Now we feel proud of our cow and
it is satisfactory to have our sister
town admtt that we possess something that beats what they have, if
it is only a cow. We respect
fully suggest to Mr. Langstaff, of
the Topic, that he should try and
procure a calf of the Ferguson Cow
to place on his ranch near Trout
Lake and thus do away in time
with the necessity of feeding a half
dozen cows with hay costing $40
per ton when one of the right
breeding would suffice.
An Italian count has invented
an arrangement for delivering letters by electricity. Negotiations
have been opened with the British
Government to have the new invention tested. The general conception ot the system, says Count
Priscicelly, is to have a small electric railway of steel wires, over
which light vehicles are to run at
a speed of 250 miles an hour.
These wires would be supported by
poles. The wires would be used
as conductor of the current as well
as rails, and this current by pass-
sing continuously across the wheels
of the vehicle, put in motion a
motor connected with the vehicle
which is drawn along.

LARDEAU MINES, LTD.
The three claims owned by the company are tho "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and 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 Welt Kootenay, British Columbia.
These three olaims 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 150 acres. They he east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
The group lies in the "Sitting Bull" and "Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in that district, and work
already done on apjacent extentlons has given roost satisfactory
results as to extent of ore bodies and increased valuos witb depth.
The formation is slate and schist, lying in an immonse lime
dyke, and the cropplngs of the leads are generally topped with heavy
Iron capping and quartz, which gives assays from $3 up on tho
surface.
VEINS AND WORK DONE
Exploitation consists, of two open cuts along the surface for a
distance of twenty feet,'" which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches ln width. Tho valuo of this oro body was $25,110
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet it has increased
toHQ.60. To tap this ore showing and the massivo iron capped
ledge close to which it lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distance of 82 feet. Another 85 feot o'f crosscu tttng
should reach this ledge at a deptii of about 125 feet. When 01 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, silver, copper and lead.
The property has an excellent surface showing. The average
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tlnuancy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence of the surface judging from other properties in the near
violnity, frame of which are on tbe Bame lead and have developed
very rich ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that the Lardeau Mines are as good as
any, lf cot the best, in the violnity, 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.
