The Nettle L. To Become Lardeau's Banner Mine By Breaking All
Previous Records.
IT SHOULD FORCE THE RAILWAY'S HAND IN CONSTRUCTION
Contract Just About Closed With Messrs. Oral? & Hillman For the
. Transportation of 1100 Tons of Nettie L. Ore to the Landing.���
Manager Says They Will Have No Diffloulty in Mining That
Amount, And There Will Be Lots Left For The Railway When
it Does Come.���Nettie L. Destined to be a Big Dividend-Payer.
This distinction is uow due tlio Nettio L., as tho Great Western  Mines,
Limited, have just about closed a contract with  Messrs. Craig & Hillman
for tho transportation of 1100 tons of
ore to the Landing;,   Manager Pool has
been up at the property for the post
two weeks continuously, and if at the
bottom of the CO ft. shaft they are now
sinking on tho crosscut  in the east
drift, the ore holds out as above this
tonnage    output   is    assured.    Two
tour-horse teams will operate between
the ore sheds hore and Baty's hotol,
while four four-horse teams will ply
between there and the Landing. Their
stables here have been repaired for
the winter and stables are also being
built at tho mine for the rawhiding
horses.   This immense ore output will
revolutionize things in general in this
camp, and it will also prove to the
outsido   world that we have mining
men here who aro prepared to lose a
portion of their profits,  face every
obstacle an,d demonstrate their faith in
the diotriqt by getting out ore, believing that thare 1b lots more left for tho
railway when It comes.   The Nettle L.
has never tried to fool the people by
keeping its walls lined with ore and
milking  baste slowly on new strikes.
The owners are determined to make a
mine and also to mako It a solf-sustafn-
lug     proposition.    They    bave    no
''London  board" strings on them to
dictate their course, and if tho average
value   of   thoir   oro   holds    out   nB
expected,  after careful assaying and
sorting, this 1100 tons output will put
the company on velvet and ever after
the Nettio L. will be known as one of
the first dividend-payers in tho Lar
doau.

Through the rain and mud the Trout
Lake participants arrived and were
made comfortable in every respect by
mine host Ferguson, Mr. Carruthers
with a violin and Miss Edwards presiding at the piano furnished the best
of muBie for tripping tbe light fantastic. J. Smith acted as floor manager.
Some thirty couple were present and
in the spacious room provided all enjoyed themselves until 5 o'clock on
Saturday morning. A recherche lunch
was provided at midnight. Considering the disagreeable weather the event
was one of the most pleasant and
successful dances ever given in the

LABOR PARTY'S PLATFORM.
GOVERNMENT OWNED RAILWAYS.
In Australia, on government-owned
railroads, you can ride a distanco of
1000 miles for 40.50, first class, while
workingmen can ride six miles for
two cents, twelve miles for four cents,
thirty miles for ten cents, and worklngmon rocoive from twenty-five to
thirty per cent, moro wages for eight
hours of labor than are paid in this
country for ton hours. In Victoria,
where these rates prevail, the net income from the roads is sufficient to
pay all the federal taxes, which Is
another convincing proof of the possibility of govornmont without taxation.
In Hungary, whore the roads are
stale-owned, you can ride six miles for
ono cont; and since tho roads wero
bought by the government, the men's
wages havo doubled.
Belgium tolls the samo story���fareB
and freight rates cut down ono-half,
and wages doubled. Yet, tho roads
pay a yearly revenue to the government of $4,000,000. In tho Unitod
States, under private ownership, it is
tho othor way. Wo havo paid the
railroads billions In land and money,
and are now paying them millions
yearly for carrying tho mail; and yet
freight and passenger rates aro so extortionate.
In Germany you can ride four .miles
for one cent on the government-owned
lines. Yet wages are 125 per cent.
higher than they were when the corporation owned them, and during the
last ten years the net profits have
increased 41 per cent. Last year tbe
roads paid the German government a
not proBt of $20,000,000.���Nonconformist.
The platform of tbe Vancouver
Labor party, to which Mr. Maxwell
has been asltud to placo his signature,
is as follows:
1. That tho distribution of Parliamentary representation throughout the
Dominion be established and maintained on a uniformly equitable basis.
2. Government ownership of all
public services which aro by thoir
nature monopolies.
3. That all -<.��� 3nues for public
purposes be de ' by a tax or land
values.
4. That the government issue and
control tho medium of exchange.
5. Government works to be dono by
day labor, ifnd that eight hours shall
constitute a day's work.
0. Abolition of all assisted immigration; the abolition of Asiatic immigration, and the regulation of all
Immigration by an educational tost as
to their fitness, and the abolition of all
special inducements and privileges to
| foreign immigrants to settle in the
Dominion.
7. Tho abolition of tho Sonate,
and the introduction of direct legislation.
The Virtue of itB  Wates.���Their
Great Healing Powers for
Metallic Poisoning.
It is an interesting and notable fact
that wherever nature permits the
prosonce of any condition or material
injurious to the health of the human
race, sho almost invariably places
natural moans of relief within convenient roach of the sufforors.
A striking instance of this truth is
found in the conditions imposed on tho
miner who wrests from the rugged
treasuries of the mountains tho mineral
wealth which nature has stored there
in such princely abundance. To the
sturdy miner equipped with a wholesome contempt for difficulties that
would overcome a less rigorous specimen of manhood, the richly mineral-
feed mountains of British Columbia
afford a field of immense profits for
centuries to como. The Slocan, the
Lardoau and other parts of tho
Kootenays are only in their swaddling
clothes, but have within tbem the
elements of a most vigorous growth.
Nothing worth having is obtainable
without difficulties and tho chief of
those to practical minors in thoso districts is that moro or less liberal
quantities of lead, arsenic and other
substances injurious to health are mot
with wborever the rich minerals aro
found.
Continued work in this atmosphere
oventually produces a train of symptoms
with  which every  working miner is

The Topic shoulil be more careful in
"boosting" for unsafe mining companies in this district, presumably at so
much por boost. The EAGLE is frequently supplied with their rcadymade
writcups, devoid ot real truth, and
offered certain inducements for the
publication thereof. The Sliver Belt
mine (?) on Brown creek is a case in
point, if a mining newspaper is anything it sliould bo reliable; and when
a publisher lends himself to helping to
deceive and defraud the share-buying
publio his sphere of usefulness is gone.
Tlie pecuniary gain derived from over-
inll.ited mining companies Is nut to be

of readers who place confidence in a

A * FOLEY'S ADDRESS
Worthy of Careful Consideration
By All Classes.
IT'S TO TBE PEOPLE WANT
And the Old Parties Are Unequal
to the Occasion.
To thc Elcetora of Yale-Cariboo :
In requesting your support to my candidacy
for the Dominion Bouse of commons, it is duo
to you Unit ! rIvo public expression to my
views on the (several planks ol the platform of
the Independent Labor Party ;
1. Compulsory education has becomo a
recognised necessity in most countries and as
such has my hearty endorsement.
2. Legal work clay, 8 hours.
Modern invention has so enormously increased the productive power of man that his wants
can be supplied with a fraction of the time and
effort heretofore necessary for that purposo.
Labor as well as capital should benefit by theso
changed conditions. The 8-hour law is a step
In that direction and I shall heartily endorse
any legislation looking to that end.
3. Government inspection ot industries.
Under modern economic conditions tho management of industrial concerns figure on results, not the methods by which they are to be
obtained. An oversiipplied labor market enables them to imposo on employes any conditions they may deem necessary. Protest as a
rnlc means dismissal from service and probable want to their little ones. Iu throwing thc
strong arm of tho law about these children of
misfortune you aro simply following the teachings of tho meek and lowly Jesus, who said
suffer tho little ones to come unto me, for of
such is the kingdom of heaven.
4. Abolition of contract Bystem.
Tlio abuses that havo grown up under thc
contract.system as outlinod In the first issuo
of tho Dominion Labor Onstette should convince
ev^on the hide-bound inirtlx.au of tho necessity
of the enactment ol such a law.
6. Public ownership of franchises.
Our experience in the control of the postal
department, public schools, publio highway
munieipal lighting plants and (waterworks is
sufficient ground for tho extrusion of the saim
'system to railroads, telegraph, telephone, and
express business. Tbo experience of people in
Now Zealand, Australia, Germany and elsewhere has demonstrated lhat thus-- functions
can be'porformod by the government with n
very gri nl ndvantngo to tho people and I mosl
heartily ondorse legislation looking to that
end.
5. Prohibition of Asiatic emigration and iho
educational lest.
Tbe presence-hero in largo numbers of this
non-assimilating nice robs Canadian labor of
its birthright. Every Mongol landing upon
our shores lessens rather than increases our
population. Tho white laborer whicli he replaces would as a rule marry and scttlo among
ns,Increasing tbe population by at lens! three.
This means lo the merchant less mouths to
feed, and loss hacks to clothe, to tho doctor
less demands for his services, to tlie transportation companlos less traffic, to tbo dentist less
teeth to fill, to the mechanic less buildings to
erect, to tho real estate dealer loss demand for
property including toss foreo for [ho same, to
tho farmer loss sale for produce, to tho news*
paper man loss papers to he sold, to iho
preacher smaller oougrcgationfl, and to tho
bouthint'k fewer shoe*; totdiino. Their presence
works injury in all branches of tho ooonomic
system. I oppose their coming hero on the
same grounds I would oppose the taking of
more passengers Into an open boat alroady
loaded lo tbo sinking lino In raid-Pacific.
Every Chinaman occupying a position in dom-
es tie services interferes with the natural laws
ns applying to the industrialbofly.robbing our
women of employmcut naturally bolonging t"
them in the extent that for ovory Chinaman so
employed some one's sister or daughter is
driven to prostitution, evolving a ni"0 problem destined to breed sons nf blood and that
will some day mantle the Canadian cheek
with ablush for his conn<ry'flsbawo,
7. Abolition of child labor.'
An economic system that drives tho child
from the cradle to the factory to compote with
its own fatbor Is certainly the legitimate child
of an Industrial system having ,grood as Ha
basic prinoiplo. Legislation along l'nes opposed to tills; will roceivo my hearty support.
8. Abolition Of thofaM deposit.
Onder conditions whore nil aro amenable to
the law am I assume the responsibility of defending lhe country's ling and institution*! all
should bo entitled alike to aspire to the high*
ost position in tho irift of thoir countryman
without boing taxed for tho privilege of so doing.   I would repeal thai law.
p.  Compulsory at hit rat lon.
Compulsory arbitration ns Applied in New
Zo-tlvtl !'ii.,-1 n i "i ihe Imrluonof progress
not as a dream, Imt as ii practical method of
reconciling tho conflicting Interests of labor
and capital,and is dealinod, T think, In thc
near future. If applied, to prevent those period*
leal industrial wars and lend a security to ail
branches of business such -is is impossible
tinder existing I'ondltionsnn i as such receives
my hearty approval,
10.  All election days to bo made publio holt-
United Bate of North America
this iStiie
union label
of the United Hatters of North America.    When  yon
are buying a PUR
HAT, either soft or
stiff, see to It that
thegenuine union
LABEL Is sowed in
it.   If a retailer has
loose labels in his
possession and offers to put one in n
hat for you, do not
patronize bim.  He
hns not any right to havo loose, labels.   Loose
labels in retail stores are counterfeits,   Do not
listen to any explanation as to why tho hat has
no label.   The Genuine Union Label is perforated on the four edges exactly the Bame as a
postage stamp.     Couterfeits aro sometimes
perforated on three of the edges, and sometimes
only  on   two.     Koop a sharp lookout for the
counterfeits.   Unprincipled manufacturers are
using thorn in order to got rid of their scab-
made hats.   The John U. Stetson Co. und Henry
It. Koelofs, both of Philadelphia, Pa., are nonunion concerns.

presented by Chris Foley in to-day's
Issue of the Eacile.
R, Leckie-Ewing has secured data
anil illustrations for an excellent
article on this years progress in the
Lardeau, whieh will appear shortly in
the Mining Record of Victoria.
Several small mudslides in the
canyon, during the heavy raine,
necessitated the mail being brought in
on pack horses Monday. The stage
and freight teams expect to get through
to-day.
A largo number of Lardeau voters
will be in the Slocan for the election
on Nov. 21st. This will help the
Slocan materially in giving a big
majority to Chris Foley, tho Labor
candidate.
A cubit foot of lead ore weighs (174
pounds. Thus a vein of galena, 1 foot
wido, (i feet high and (i feet long (a
fathom) will produce 16,082 pounds, or
a vein 14 inches wido will net ono ton
to tho fathom.
It begins to look as though the ��� win-
ter season had set in in this camp.
Though the weather is warm several
inches of snow lios on top of thc mud
and slush. Tho evergreen trees about
present a "Merry Christmas" spectacle.
With the shipment of upwards of
150(1 tons of ore from tbe Lardeau this
winter it is not unlikely that navigation on the arm will be kept open all
winter, thus doing away with the
winter mail service schedule giving
only two malls a week.
The snow-line is lowering daily and
soon the Lardeau will be clothed in its
winter shroud. Every day witnesses
men leaving for the more advanced
camps of the Kootenays to put in the
winter months. The opening of
springtime will see them all wending
their way buck to this eamp.

Earnest Byrnell, who has been
engaged on the Old Gold trail work,
which is now completed, left for Revelstoke yesterday morning.
A five-acre farm in the Lardeau is
worth as much to a man as 320 acres on
the prairie. Next season should see
moro following thin avocation here.
The EAGLE will probably issue a
pamphlet this winter concerning the
latent resources of this district, now
lying dormant for the neod of capital
and a railway.
All trail and road work is wound up
for this season. Two or moro men will
likely bo employed all winter to keep
the snow roads In repair. This 1b
a step in ihe right direction Mr. Taylor.
Dndor date of tho 20th inst., J. Mo-
Creory, C. P. R. agent at Arrowhead,
writos the Eagle concerning a delayed
express (parcel of which wc elicited
informal .ion. The reply was: "I have
offered it to tho steamer but they will
not tako it." Tho Eagle would like
an immediate explanation from Capt.
Roman or whoever is responsible for
this delay.
Tho Eagle was informed yosterday,
by H. McPherson, that several parties
hold rights to construct electrical
tramways, etc., in this district, including tho outlet between hero and deep
water landing on the Arm. This being the case there should be little
difficulty in transferring thoir rights
to a company prepared to do business
at once.
Wm. Schnell, barber, while on his
way to tho Lake to catch the stage
last week, to leave for Sandon, met
with an unfortunate and simple
accident. While walking over a
peeled log near the saw mill he slipped
and fell breaking ono of his legs at the
ankle. Mo crawled to the residence of
J. C. Kirkpatrick whore he is now
getting on as well as could be expected.
Dr. Wilson was summonod and set

bis leg set in plaster paris Mr.
Schnell hopes to again make for Sandon the latter end of this week.
