Lardeau Heartily Responds to the
Striker's Appeal for Aid
The Strikers at Rossland and North-
port Must Be Sustained, to
Protect B. O. Laborers.
La Ounre tu'othera, wlio have a group
of three elal ms in that locality, woro In
Fergueon on Sunday. Tho Comstock
group, as tit or call it, is located at tho
head ol Duel: creek, a tributary near
the head of Iai iae creek. These gentlemen showed the Eaglb samples of

Outcroppings o f the ledge and it would

W. J. Walker, representing the
Northport Smeltermen's union, who
are on strike tit present, and also editor
and a half owner of the Freeman's
Labor Journal of Spokane, waa in Ferguson on Thursday in tbe interests, of
both. In tho evening Mr. Walker
addressed a good sized audience in the
miners' union hall, He reviewed the
labor movement in America, its upland downs and prospective triumph, and
if 'there wua any reason wanted why
producers of wealth should organize,
the same as capitalists'<re doing, Mr.
Walker was equal to the occasion. He
showed where men used to own and
control the means of production to-day
they were but cogs in the wheels of
modern machinery, machinery whir/h
has beon wresti d from tho people by
the few and thus the masses were
forced to pay tribute. Liko most of
Mr. Walker's sympathetic audience
thc speaker believed that the time waa
ripe for the people to rise and with the
ballot secure that which is but their
own���the product of their labor. In
this era of capitalistic combination, the
organization of labor was the only
means of combat'ing tho forces which
were rapidly becoming aggressive.
But oven labor unions are only a means
to an end; the people must become
shareholders in the means of production, and production must be for
consumption���not profit. Modern
machinery bad been invented to do the
work of man, but man was finding it
even harder to eke out a living, simply
because tho labor-savers wore in tlio
hands of the few. In short, tho people
should gt> Into business themselves, and
instoud of over-production and panics
and wars we would have shorter hours
of labor, and moro of tho pleasures of
life, enjoyed at present only by men
who wore applying tho very principles
which tbn whole people should apply.
Mr. Walker's' address was most interesting throughput, and ahould awaken
new intoi'est'in, tho cause of labor in
this district. Substantial aid was
granted tho strikers at Northport, as
it wasfolt that if thc Kossland union-
smashers won this victory other portions of tho mining provinco would
soon bo Invaded. Mr. Walker loft for

to report on tho Metropolitan group.
Upon Mr. James' return to Kossland
he told the Miner that he was then on
his way to San Francisco to acquire a

this year In Ferguson. Apparently the
soi'Vlcusof Mr. James havo been retained by Mr. McCrossan.

The Eaghi has good news to-day for
Ferguson and evory mino owner in this
district. Chas. W. McCrossan, managing director of the Metropolitan,
Gulden Link nnd Golden Circlo corn-
panics, operating in this camp, bas
formed a company to be known as the
"Lardeau Smelting and Refining Company nf British Columbia," with a
capitalization of $1,500,000 shares, tho
par value of which will be 50 rents, to
carry out the undertaking. Mr, McCrossan says he hopes to havo the
smeltor in operation' at Ferguson by
Jan, 1st, 1002, and anticipates
that it will raise i the price of
till mining stuck ;|n this distriot,
which Is undoubtedly true. And what
Is most important it will enable all of
the mines aroun'd Ferguson to ship and
treat ull theirlu'.v-grade oro at a profit.
This prospect sccnis almost too good
for tne Lardeau, uftcr the many years
wo have patiently awaited such it happy
realization. Tbo EAGLE predicts that
if tho smelter proposal is a success no
less titan twen.ty-five properties will bo
working continuously inside of twelve
months. It will also meat! that thc
railway will be extended to Ferguson without delay. Even now it is
more than likely that a contract can
be made with the Nettie L. and Silver
Cup people to supply at least 50 tons a
day between them, thus affording to
them a great saving in transportation
and increasing tho smelter returns,
while the local pay roll will bo substantially increased. Tho new company has alroady bought; and paid for a
smelter plant large enough to smelt 80
tons of ore a day, and will, they say, be
ready for business inside ol three
months, but they also purposo to place
their order soon after for a smelter
which will bis able to smelt 100 tons of
ore a day, giving'them an entire capacity of 130 tons'daily Insido of seven
months from now. Tbe Eagle can
only commend Mr. McCrossan for bis
enterprise, and in the absence of details concerning tho plant wo will

on tho townsito will be finally decided

Of all God's cattle roaming at
large on the lace of the earth, the
backcapper is the worst, He wages
war against the prosperity of the
community in which he lives and
performs the dog in the manger act
whenever un opportunity presents
itself, says the Western Mining
World. He is found, more or less,
in all vocations, but the field in
which he delights to revel���in which
he can kick his heels Ihe highest and
snort the loudest���is the mining
industry. Here his diversified talents for slander and misrepresentation find ample scope. Knowing
that capital is timid, especially
when seeking investment upon a
large scale as is usually the case in
Of all the  newspaper abortions mining deals, the backcapper recog-
ever inflicted on   the B. C. public
the  Rossland  Miner is the   most
flagrant.    The editor of that miserable excuse for a newspaper   is too
low for a red-light  flunkey.     To
think that even a boneless hireling
could stoop to such lying and deceptive methods is beyond our comprehension,    He daily pens deliberate
lies and knowingly  endeavors   to
deceive   the  public.      He   is   the
laughing slock ot the little boys on
the sircets of  Rossland, and  a far
worse  enemy  of justice  than    his
dictator, Bernard Macdonald.   This
paper poses as a union smasher, and
is opposed to everything on earlh,
in the earth and above the earth.
And  the  people  of Rossland    are
daily insulted like so  many  yellow
dogs.    It  is opposed to anarchy, it
says, and its owners are right  now
paying for and importing,  in  spite
of our laws, aliens from the hot-beds
of   anarchy   in   the United States.
The very  people  it  advised   us  to
shun some months ago, it is to-day
bringing here to take the places  ot
our own  citizens und homes.     To
be a home smasher is the  height of
its ambition.    Surely thc rights of
:i free country are being  trammeled
upon   by this viper, crawling on  its
belly beneath honest   hard-working
men    and   throwing venom  upon
their cause.     Unlike every   other
mining camp  in   British  Columbia
these anarchist Rossland mine  and
newspaper managers will not pay
the  standard  scale of wages ; and
instead of cutting out a dozen or
more     highly-paid    and      useless
officials,   with     their    champagne
account,  and   reducing   scores   ol
gross   expenditures  above ground
they seek to bust up a labor union
which has no other purpose than to
assist   its   members   to get a fair
share of what they produce, help
each  other in sickness and   bury
their dead-  which too often   occurs
while following their daily avoca'
lion.     Could   there    be   anything
more miserable and  degrading on
earlh.   Shame, shame, men ! Open
your eyes and take a look  at yourselves.     Think   of  what you are
doing.     You  have millioes.     You
hire "attorneys" at princely salaries
to do your deadly work.    The poor
miner selects one of his number to
espouse his cause at no salary, and
immediately he is dubbed by you as
an "agitator."   Think men,  think.
Or have you no sense of reason ?
We are men  together,  with  practically the same aims in life.     God
l.'as  supposedly   endowed us  with
brains.     Were    our   dispute  over
property or a  mule we have courts
to appeal to where we  must reason
together.    But because we cannot
agree on the price of labor we must
waste time and money in a useless
fight.     No returns for capital invested will be forthcoming, and the
husband and his wite and wee ones
njust seek employment; elsewhere,
while you pay clearly for the scum
of the earth  to  take his place at a
smaller wage,   Surely the "let us
nizes    his   golden   opportunity  to
gloat.    He oils up his hoodoo, sees
that   every   part   of  its   delicate
machinery is in pertect order,  and
then gets a focus on the would-be
purchaser.   Usually he brings down
his game, and with a large invoice
of satistaction in stock proceeds to
hunt for another victim.    His most
glittering triumphs   are registered
when the sale of a mining property
is almost consummated,  and when
its   reputation   is   as   sensitive to
slander as the good name of a pure
women.    It   is   then   that   he approaches the  buyer with the statement that he hopes the seller will do
well  in letting go of the  property
for he could do nothing with it himself,     on     account     of     reasons
known     only to    those    on    Ihe
inside.      With   language   of   this
type,     covert    insinuations    that
may      mean     little     or     much
he    frightens    capital     into
definite delay   and   finally perhaps
succeeds   in   preventing   lhe deal.
Thus a loss   is   inflicted   upon the
seller who lacks the money to work
the property���upon  the buyer, who
misses the opportunity of a lifetime
to quadruple his  wealth,   and upon
the community   that  loses   the industrial   value  of   the   producing
mine.    The backcapper  is actuated
by one of two   motives���the  hope
that he can  deflect  capital from its
avowed purpose into channels more
profitable to   himself,  or  to inflect
injury upon  the   would-be  seller.
The first move he tries to justify on
business grounds;  the   second he
never acknowledges.     Human experience has  shown over and over
again, that no man ever added a substantial prop to his own busines
interests by pulling down those of
his fellow man; and to inflect loss
upon others,  to the detriment ot
the community,  is like derailing a
passenger train to get even  with
the conductor.    There are few mining districts   is   this  state   where
the  deadly    backcapper   has   not
operated    with    success.       Many
districts    have     surrendered    to
the virus of his hoodoo and gone
into permanent retirement.    While
the   wildcatter   is   busy  trying to
swindle thc would-be investor,  the
backcapper is equally busy,  in a
quiet way, trying   to prevent the
sale of desirable properties.     Each
is in his own way a pest.    Both are
enemies to the communities in which
they operate and should become thc
targets  for   popular   disapproval.
With higher standards in the mining industry the   wildcatter and the
backcapper will be forced out ot the
field, and the waters of oblivion will
close   in   over   the  tribe, for like
Othello,  their occupation   will be
annually, money rusting while stored
away in huge vaults, and money
kings onevery hand, does it ever
strike you who created that wealth?
Was it not, for the most part, the
men who are still wage-earners,
many of whom know not what a
holiday means? Families are scattered to the four winds, loved ones
are parted, millions of people are
mere slaves, wasting their lives in
secluded territories or amid the din
of daily toil, with no time for reading, outing or the enjoyment ot life.
And all because ol their own ignorance. Money is a medium- of
exchange. Each dollar represents
so much labor. Therefore money
is simply concentrated labor, since
without labor nothing would be
produced. But the laborer usually
produces more than he consumes,
and this while in the employ of
another. His surplus should go to
a public fund for public purposes,
but it does not. It goes into the
hands of men who have been shrewd
enough to acquire the means of
production. It had a small beginning, but money was all-powerful and it is easy to understand how
things are as they are today. It is
the natural growth and product ot
the competitive system of society.
The people themselves must adopt
the methods of the few before they
can expect to share in ihe production of their own wealth.

begin developing our natural resources ourselves. Let us make up
our minds that we are here to stay
instead of always figuring that we
will sell out to the first "sucker"
who comes along with the price.
Then we will find that instead of
talking of hard times all the time
we will begin to find that we are

It costs money to develop a prospect into a mine, and there is of
course, the same amount of
uncertainty in mining as any other
business. But because a mining
company cannot pay dividends on a
capitalization of a million dollars or
more is no good reason why the
laborer's wages should be cut any
lower. If a mine cannot pay fair
wages to those who operate it, and
bear its share of taxation it is belter closed than to be operated wilh

What a peculiar thing it is that a

willing to sell stock nt a few cents

Is thc Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
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 the 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 the
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will'vc teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance o( four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are it
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
But why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, thc natural gco^
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc., and the right kind of people to make
a town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do the
rest.   Come and see for yourself.

of every mineral claim in the
district is shown.
Next to visiting the country in

In fact every geographical
feature is so weil defined that
one can see at a glance the
nature of our country, and the
